De nåede også ind til det omtalte "land" der viste sig at være en indlandsisø (nunataq). Denne fik senere navnet "Dalagers nunatakker". Beretningen om denne tur er vedføjet som tillæg til D.s ved Frederikshåb i vinteren 1752 skrevne Grønlandske Relationer der tryktes i Kbh. sandsynligvis 1758 og som har gjort ham kendt som en fremragende iagttager og skildrer af primitivt folkeliv.

2 volumes, XXXVI-638 + À Paris, chez Ch. Antoine Jombert, 1758, in-4, 2 volumes, XXXVI-638 + [2]-680 pp, 15 pl, basane marbrée de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronnés, pièces de titre et de tomaison rouges, tranches rouges, Première édition de cette première histoire moderne des mathématiques, de l'antiquité à la fin du XVIIe siècle. L'ouvrage contient des parties sur l'optique, l'astronomie et la mécanique, ainsi que sur le calcul infinitésimal. Montucla avait l'intention de publier un troisième volume sur l'histoire de mathématiques jusqu'au milieu du XVIIIe siècle. Sur l'insistance de ses proches, il prépara dans les années 1790 une seconde édition qui devait couvrir ce manque, en incluant les mathématiques de tout le XVIIIe siècle. Les deux premiers tomes paraîtront en août 1799, quatre mois avant la mort de l'auteur ; son ami d'enfance Lalande se chargera de la publication des deux derniers tomes (1802). Cet chef d'oeuvre n'aura pas de successeur avant les Vorlesungen de Moritz Cantor (1880-1908). Traces d'ex-libris arrachés sur les contreplats et ex-libris manuscrits grattés sur les pages de tire. Bon exemplaire en dépit de quelques épidermures et une petite galerie de ver sur le plat inférieur du volume II. DSB IX, 500-501. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Giovanni Battista Beccaria taught physics at the University of Turin from 1748. He introduced the study of Galileian experimental physics. He also studied and disseminated Newtonian physics and maintained a close correspondence with Benjamin Franklin. While personally interested in the study of electricity, he developed the theory of "revenge electricity", proved only by the work of Volta. As a result of his work and Franklin's discoveries, lightning rods were installed on St. Mark's Basilica in Venice and on the Duomo in Milan. Beccaria was also interested in geography, especially in measuring the degree of terrestrial meridian arc to be used as a basis for the calculation of the equatorial circumference and the crushing of the poles. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

Entre las páginas 49 y 51 hay 29 pp. numeradas con números romanos con el nombre de las piezas y sus muestras. Segunda edición, más apreciada que la primera, por estar corregida y aumentada. Interesante obra sobre construcción naval, muy bien ilustrada. Según el propio autor, está destinada a la instrucción de los jóvenes aprendices, siendo totalmente práctica y elemental, pero al mismo tiempo muy útil. Comienza con una reflexión general sobre la arquitectura naval y sobre la clasificación de las embarcaciones según su rango y dimensiones, longitud y altura. Al parecer, jamás llegó a publicarse en castellano. Buen ejemplar, con todos sus márgenes. Graesse II col 444 sólo cita la primera edición. Piel de la época, con nervios y tejuelo

Somis, Ignazio.
Torino: Nella stamperia reale, 1758. First edition. Very Good/This work, which describes the experiences of two sisters, their brother's wife, and her five-year-old child trapped in a ruined stable by an avalanche for 37 days, is now considered a pioneering study in post-traumatic stress disorder. It is the first scientific study of the effects of survival through a period of privation. Somis (1718-93), professor of medicine at the University of Torino, descibes the tragic avalanche that destroyed the village of Bergemoletto in the high Alps west of Turin, and the survival of the child and three women for five weeks in a structure that we might call a lean-to buried under forty feet of snow. The husband and older son died in a desperate rescue attempt. Somis narrates the events passionately, replete with citations from Dante, but the medical analysis that follows is distinctly scientific. In a 2009 article on PTSD published in "Psychological Medicine," Brenda Parry-Jones wrote "no other publication has been located, to date, approaching the depth and detail of Somis." . Quarto (26 cm); [4] leaves, 166 pages, and two engraved folding plates. Engraved vignette on title pages (illustrating the event narrated in the text), engraved portrait of Carlo Emmanuele, two engraved initials with figures of cherubs.In contemporary vellum over boards, red leather label on spine. Pages lightly toned, with some rather negligible stains. Good margins. Bima, Catalogo ragionato, in "La Stampa Reale di Torino" (2003), p. 91; Wellcome V, 148; Blake NLM 426..

J.Z. HOLWELL
1758. [History] ~ BLACK HOLE OF CALCUTTA HOLWELL, J.Z. A genuine narrative of the deplorable deaths of the English Gentlemen, and Others, who were suffocated in the Black-Hole in Fort-William, at Calcutta, in the Kingdom of Bengal; in the Night succeeding the 20th Day of June, 1756. In a Letter to a Friend London. Printed for A. Millar, 1758. 8vo. viii, 56pp. Finely bound in twentieth-century half-calf, marbled boards, gilt, by Root & Son. The slightest of rubbing to extremities, browning to title and final leaf, else a fine copy. A first edition of the definitive first-hand account of one of the most traumatic events of Anglo-Indian colonial history; the imprisonment and death of more than 100 British soldiers and civilians in a 'Black Hole' confinement cell smaller than 5 metres square following the conquest of the East India Company's Calcutta barracks at Fort William by the ruling Mughal Nawab of Bengal, as told by the Fort's acting commander and a survivor of the Black Hole John Zephaniah Holwell (1711-98). As well as the 'Black Hole of Calcutta' becoming the canonical legend of native Indian brutality towards British soldiers and merchants, the loss of Fort William led directly to the dispatch of Major-General Robert Clive with orders to retake both the fort and the city of Calcutta, and perhaps most significantly, to a much more direct model of British colonial rule in the Indian subcontinent.

Originally in three volumes, The Friend of Men will remain until the last editions in three complete volumes; the various parts added (in this edition 6) are only works agglomerated with the general theme of the economic thinking of the physiocrats, notably The economic table of quesnay of the eighth volume, or the memoir on agriculture of the academy of Bern, Thus, later on, we will even find an eighth part added: Mirabeau's Tax Theory (published separately, of course).Binders in full marbled and glazed blond calfskin. Smooth back decorated with 4 partitioned flowers. Title and volume piece in Havana morocco. A slight lack at the head of Volume II and Volume III. A lack in tail of the volume V. Missed along the back of the volume VI on 3 boxes (with wide lack on the lower plate). A missing head and tail of Volume VIII, and along the bottom edge and bottom corner.
