        Principes mathématiques de la philosophie naturelle

      Desaint & Saillant, Lambert, Paris 1759 - 2 volumes in-4. Collation : (4), XXXIX, (5), 437 pp., 9 planches h.-t. / (4), 180, 297, (2) pp., 5 planches. Veau marbré, dos à nerfs orné, tranches rouges. (Reliure de l'époque.). _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ First and sole French translation of Newton's "Principia". By this famous translation, the Marquise du Chatelet contributed to the dissemination of Newtonian physics. Copy with the "Avertissement in 2nd state, with small differences (Châtelet changed to Chastellet, for example) to the text and the decorative headpiece is different. Some very few copies are known with the date of 1756, but according to last the researches, it seems that the book was partly printed between 1746 and 1747 and only released in 1759. _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ Première et seule édition française de cette traduction annotée des «Principia» de Newton. Exemplaire avec l' «Avertissement» en deuxième état. (Les bandeaux sont différents et le texte a été recomposé, avec quelques modifications). Il existe de très rares exemplaires portant la date de 1756. Mais d'après Chambat et Varry, il est possible qu'une partie de l'ouvrage ait été imprimée entre 1746 et 1747 et que les feuillets aient été conservés jusque vers 1756, date à laquelle avait été prévue la distribution. Cette sortie a ensuite été retardée à 1759 par la perte de planches et le travail de Clairaut, ou par d'autres raisons inconnues. «Une distribution en petit nombre, comme le pense Cohen, a-t-elle eu lieu en 1756 ? rien ne l'atteste. Peut-on être sûr que les exemplaires datés 1756 ne soient pas simplement des erreurs d'assemblage des imprimeurs ou des oublis de remplacement des feuillets qu'il fallait faire en 1759 ?» Frédéric Chambat & Dominique Varry, Faut-il faire une description bibliographique des Principes mathématiques ?, Centre international d'étude du xviiie siècle. Emilie du Châtelet, amie intime de Voltaire a, par cet ouvrage, largement contribué à la diffusion des idées newtoniennes en France. «On trouvera souvent Newton plus intelligible dans cette traduction que dans l'original & même que dans la traduction anglaise.» (Avertissement). Bel exemplaire.

Fine. chez Arkstrée et Merkus, à Amsterdam & à Leipzig 1759, 2 tomes en un Vol. Pet. in-8 (10,5x17cm), xxvj, 324pp. ; 336pp., relié. - New edition, published after the first format in-4 in 1758. Binding full fair calf contemporary. Back with nerves decorated. As brown morocco room. Triple mentoring net on the boards. Gilt edges. A dull corner, another rubbed. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Nouvelle édition, après la première parue au format in-4 en 1758. Reliure en plein veau blond d'époque. Dos à nerfs orné. Pièce de titre de maroquin brun. Triple filet d'encadrement sur les plats. Tranches dorées. Un coin émoussé, un autre frotté. Frottements coiffes et mors. Bel exemplaire. Aussitôt paru, le livre subit une interdiction de la Sorbonne et une mise à l'index pour ses idées subversives et hérétiques (le livre fut même brûlé devant le public en 1759). Les autorités furent particulièrement indignées des idées sociales et politiques que contient le livre, ce qui lui assura un intérêt très poussé par le public. Les Encyclopédistes ne s'y trompèrent pas pour lesquels l'ouvrage fut la bible du Rationalisme (même si son propos fut rejeté par Diderot). Helvetius ne se proposait que d'examiner l'esprit humain comme un objet de connaissance, mais sous un postulat Matérialiste, puisque il affirme que toutes les facultés humaines peuvent être réduites à des sensations physiques. Helvetius (1715-1771) fut Fermier Général, devenant riche, il sut être très généreux et un mécène pour les philosophes et les écrivains. Un livre très important pour le XVIIIe siècle.

Erstmals wurde dieser unterhaltsame und reich illustrierte Physik-Kurs 1743 veröffentlicht und erfreute sich danach nicht nur in Frankreich wachsender Beliebtheit, eine neunte und letzte Ausgabe erschien in 6 Bänden von 1783 bis 1786 in Paris bei Durand, ebenfalls mit 116 Tafeln, eine illustrierte deutsche Ausgabe von 1766 bis 1772 bei J. F. Weber in Erfurt unter dem Titel "Physikalische Lehrstunden". eine englische in London 1752 und eine italienische in Neapel 1780. Mit dem "Discours sur les dispositions & sur les qualites qu'il faut avoir pour faire des progres dans l'etude de la physique experimentale" der nicht in allen Auflagen abgedruckt wurde. Nollet hielt diese Rede über die Voraussetzungen und Qualitäten die für Fortschritte in der Experimentalphysik notwendig seien am 16. Mai 1753 anläßlich der Eröffnung der neuen Schule für Experimentalphysik, die für ihn durch den König an der Universität von Paris, am College de Navarre, eingerichtet worden war und zu deren Professor er gleichzeitig berufen worden war. Er entdeckte das Phänomen der Osmose (1748) und erfand verschiedene Instrumente, darunter auch ein Elektroskop. Später unterrichtete er auch die Kinder des französischen Königs. Er starb am 24. April 1770 in Paris. "Nollet's cours de physique was perhaps the most popular exhibition of its kind ever given. With carefully orchestrated demonstrations performed on some 350 different instruments, the abbe entertained his enthusiastic auditors as, in the spirit of the Enlightenment, he undertook to dispel their 'vulgar errors, extravagant fears and faith in the marvelous'" ex: DSB ("Dictionary of Scientific Biography") X, 145. <br> "Jean Antoine Nollet, dit l'abbe Nollet, ne a Pimprez dans le Noyonnais le 19 decembre 1700 et mort le 24 avril 1770, est un physicien francais. Il fut associe aux travaux de Du Fay et de Reaumur. Nollet a beaucoup contribue a repandre en France le gout et l'etude de la physique par des expositions claires et attrayantes. Il s'etait surtout occupe de l'electricite : il concut les premiers electroscopes, fit connaitre en France la bouteille de Leyde, dont il realisa une version " seche ", et pressentit dans les feux de Saint-Elme et la foudre l'action de l'electricite. (...) Les huit premieres Lecons de physique experimentale1 paraissent en 1743 en deux volumes chez Durand et les quatre volumes suivants ont connu sept reimpressions. Ils constituent le developpement du programme. C'est dans ce livre qu'il associe, le premier semble-t-il, le tonnerre et l'electricite. De fait, a la mort de Dufay, Nollet se trouve etre en France l'homme le plus qualifie pour prendre en main la direction des recherches sur l'electricite ; c'est sous l'impulsion de l'abbe Nollet, representant des physiciens francais, allemands et anglais, que l'enseignement de la physique experimentale prend un caractere veritablement international, l'Europe s'opposant a l'Amerique, l'ecole de Paris a celle de Philadelphie. ..." ex: wiki <br> Siehe auch: h t t p : / / w w w . h s . o x . a c . u k /exhibits/get-physical/jean-antoine-nollet/ * Zahlung mit VISA/ MASTERCARD möglich.

Originally in three volumes, the friend of men will remain until the last three editions complete volumes; various parts added (in this edition 6) are bonded as works to the general theme of economic thinking of the Physiocrats, including The Economic Quesnay's Tableau of the eighth volume, or memory on Agriculture of the Academy of Bern thus later we find even an eighth part added: Theory Tax Mirabeau (Published separately of board).

Volume VII: Response tested on roads and bridges, roads and chores. Tomes VIII: Economic Table, with its explanations, Quesnay). Basic set for Physiocracy and the modern economy, and totally décentra vision of business and its mechanisms.

Un frontispice au tome I de Fessart (lequel manque souvent dans l'édition in-12), et 6 tableaux dépliants dans le Tableau économique de Quesnay au tome VIII. 7 pages de titres sans lieu ni adresse, le tome V ne porte qu'un faux-titre (Suite de la quatrième partie). Originellement en trois volumes, L'ami des hommes demeurera jusqu'aux dernières éditions en trois volumes complets ; les diverses parties ajoutées (dans cette édition 6) ne sont que des oeuvres agglomérées au thème général de la réflexion économique des physiocrates, notamment Le tableau économique de quesnay du huitième volume, ou le mémoire sur l'agriculture de l'académie de Berne, c'est ainsi que plus tard, on trouvera même une huitième partie ajoutée : la Théorie de l'impôt de Mirabeau (publié à part naturellement). Reliures en plein veau blond marbré et glacé d'époque. Dos lisse orné de 4 fleuons cloisonnés. Pièce de titre et de tomaison en maroquin havane. Un léger manque en tête du tome II et du tome III.

Tome IV et V : Précis de l'organisation, ou mémoires sur les états provinciaux, de Thomas Hale. Tome VI : Mémoire sur l'agriculture. Tome VII : Réponse à l'essai sur les ponts et chaussées, la voirie et les corvées. Tomes VIII : Tableau économique, avec ses explications, de Quesnay). Ensemble fondamental pour la physiocratie et l'économie moderne, et qui décentra totalement la vision du monde économique et de ses mécanismes. Mirabeau n'appartenait pas au mouvement des physiocrates quand il publia L'ami des hommes, et il ne rencontra Quesnay que plus tard, grâce à la lecture que fit celui-ci de L'ami des hommes ; cette rencontre sera décisive pour la physiocratie et les futures éditions de L'ami des hommes, véritables machines de guerre pour le mouvement physiocratique dont les idées révolutionnèrent l'économie. Mirabeau démontre l'importance des idées libérales pour l'économie et la population, et l'intérêt et l'importance d'une agriculture forte. Il prône une meilleure distribution des richesses et une égalité raisonnée des taxes. L'ouvrage devint si célèbre dans toute l'Europe que Mirabeau fut affublé de son titre.

Provenience: From the library of Henry Augustus Viscount Dillon, with his bookplate / Exlibris in all three volumes.. Three volumes (complete). London, S. and E. Ballard, 1759. Octavo. Volume I: [28],414,[26] pages/ Volume II: [4],608 pages / Volume III: [36], [4],468,[27] pages. Original Hardcover (contemporary calf with gilt lettering on spine). Very good condition with the original spinelabels. Interior bright and clean. No foxing. Rear cover of Volume II nearly detached. Provenience: From the library of Henry Augustus Viscount Dillon, with his bookplate / Exlibris in all three volumes. Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (28 February 1533 ?- 13 September 1592) was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. His work is noted for its merging of casual anecdotes and autobiography with serious intellectual insight; his massive volume Essais (translated literally as "Attempts" or "Trials") contains some of the most influential essays ever written. Montaigne had a direct influence on writers all over the world, including Francis Bacon, René Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Albert Hirschman, William Hazlitt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Stefan Zweig, Eric Hoffer, Isaac Asimov, and possibly on the later works of William Shakespeare. In his own lifetime, Montaigne was admired more as a statesman than as an author. The tendency in his essays to digress into anecdotes and personal ruminations was seen as detrimental to proper style rather than as an innovation, and his declaration that, 'I am myself the matter of my book', was viewed by his contemporaries as self-indulgent. In time, however, Montaigne would come to be recognized as embodying, perhaps better than any other author of his time, the spirit of freely entertaining doubt which began to emerge at that time. He is most famously known for his skeptical remark, "Que sçay-je?" ("What do I know?", in Middle French; directly rendered Que sais-je? in modern French). Remarkably modern even to readers today, Montaigne's attempt to examine the world through the lens of the only thing he can depend on implicitly—his own judgment—makes him more accessible to modern readers than any other author of the Renaissance. Much of modern literary non-fiction has found inspiration in Montaigne and writers of all kinds continue to read him for his masterful balance of intellectual knowledge and personal storytelling. (Wikipedia) Provenience: Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee, 13th Viscount Dillon (28 October 1777 ?- 24 July 1832) was an Irish peer, writer and MP for Harwich and for County Mayo. Henry Augustus was born on 28 October 1777 at Brussels, the son of Charles Dillon-Lee, the twelfth Viscount Dillon, and his wife Henrietta Maria, the only daughter of Constantine John Phipps, 1st Baron Mulgrave. In the year 1794, when he was seventeen years old, Henry Augustus was a Colonel of the Irish Brigade. In 1799, at age 22, he was a Member of Parliament for County Harwich, and in 1802 became a Knight for Mayo. His knighthood ended in 1813 upon the death of his father, when he acceded to the Peerage as the thirteenth Viscount Dillon of Costello-Gallen. In February 1807, Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee married Henrietta Browne, sister of Dominick, 1st Baron Oranmore and Browne, daughter of Dominick-Geoffrey Browne, by Margaret, daughter of the Hon. George Browne, 4th son of the 1st Earl of Altamont. The marriage produced nine children: Henrietta Maria (1807, Halifax ?- 1895, London), a social reformer, married Edward John Stanley, 2nd Baron Stanley of Alderley. Margaret Frances Florence (d. 1885), m. to geologist William John Hamilton. Louisa Anne Rose, d. 1902, m. to the Hon. Spencer-Cecil Ponsonby of Bessborough. Helena Matilda. Charles Henry, b. 1810 at Dublin, d. 1865 at Ditchley, Oxford; succeeded his father as 14th Viscount. Theobald Dominick, b. 1811; succeeded his brother as 15th Viscount. Arthur Edmund Denis, b. 1812 at London, d. 1892 at Ditchley, Oxford; succeeded his brother as 16th Viscount. Constantine Augustus, b. 1813, d. 1853. Robert George, b. 1817. Gerald-Normanby (1823 ?- 1880), m. to Lady Louisa-Isabella-Georgiana FitzGibbon, daughter of the Earl of Clare, had issue. Emily W. Sunstein in her biography Mary Shelley: Romance and Reality writes "the literary Lord Dillon... was said to be Eliza Rennie's lover." He died 24 July 1832. His widow died thirty years later at the Hotel Windsor, Paris, 18 March 1862, aged 73. (Wikipedia)

"In February 1756, as part of a general imperial reorganization, Sir William Johnson became superintendent of Indian affairs for the northern department. Although never able to win all Iroquois, much less their Indian neighbours, to the British side, Johnson raised substantial Native American forces. At the battle of Niagara in 1759, assuming command when General John Prideaux was killed, he led British and American Indian troops to victory. After the surrender of the French in North America, Johnson unsuccessfully opposed commander-in-chief Jeffrey Amherst's disastrous policy of curtailing the Indian trade, banning the distribution of diplomatic presents, and shunning traditional diplomatic formalities, which sparked the decentralized attacks on British posts known as the Pontiac War (1763?-6). None the less, Johnson's diplomacy kept most Iroquois from the fray, and, especially in a treaty with Pontiac at Oswego in 1766, helped to restore peace" - ANB. The Battle of Niagara, really a three week siege of the French fort there, took place July 6-26, 1759. With the French surrender, and the death of Prideaux, Johnson became the commanding officer of the British and allied Indian forces now securing one of the key points in the struggle for Canada. As this document demonstrates, he was still in control there seven weeks later. Such documents are scarce and desirable. ANB (online).

        The Essays of Michael Seigneur de Montaigne. The seventh edition, with very considerable amendments and improvements. From the most elegant and accurate French edition of Peter Coste.

      London, S. and E. Ballard, 1759.. Three volumes (complete). Octavo. Volume I: [28],414,[26] pages/ Volume II: [4],608 pages / Volume III: [36], [4],468,[27] pages. Original Hardcover (contemporary calf with gilt lettering on spine). Very good condition with the original spinelabels. Interior bright and clean. No foxing. Rear cover of Volume II nearly detached. Provenience: From the library of Henry Augustus Viscount Dillon, with his bookplate / Exlibris in all three volumes.. Michel Eyquem de Montaigne (28 February 1533 - 13 September 1592) was one of the most significant philosophers of the French Renaissance, known for popularizing the essay as a literary genre. His work is noted for its merging of casual anecdotes and autobiography with serious intellectual insight; his massive volume Essais (translated literally as "Attempts" or "Trials") contains some of the most influential essays ever written. Montaigne had a direct influence on writers all over the world, including Francis Bacon, Rene Descartes, Blaise Pascal, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Albert Hirschman, William Hazlitt, Ralph Waldo Emerson, Friedrich Nietzsche, Stefan Zweig, Eric Hoffer, Isaac Asimov, and possibly on the later works of William Shakespeare. In his own lifetime, Montaigne was admired more as a statesman than as an author. The tendency in his essays to digress into anecdotes and personal ruminations was seen as detrimental to proper style rather than as an innovation, and his declaration that, 'I am myself the matter of my book', was viewed by his contemporaries as self-indulgent. In time, however, Montaigne would come to be recognized as embodying, perhaps better than any other author of his time, the spirit of freely entertaining doubt which began to emerge at that time. He is most famously known for his skeptical remark, "Que scay-je?" ("What do I know?", in Middle French; directly rendered Que sais-je? in modern French). Remarkably modern even to readers today, Montaigne's attempt to examine the world through the lens of the only thing he can depend on implicitly-his own judgment-makes him more accessible to modern readers than any other author of the Renaissance. Much of modern literary non-fiction has found inspiration in Montaigne and writers of all kinds continue to read him for his masterful balance of intellectual knowledge and personal storytelling. (Wikipedia) Provenience: Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee, 13th Viscount Dillon (28 October 1777 - 24 July 1832) was an Irish peer, writer and MP for Harwich and for County Mayo. Henry Augustus was born on 28 October 1777 at Brussels, the son of Charles Dillon-Lee, the twelfth Viscount Dillon, and his wife Henrietta Maria, the only daughter of Constantine John Phipps, 1st Baron Mulgrave. In the year 1794, when he was seventeen years old, Henry Augustus was a Colonel of the Irish Brigade. In 1799, at age 22, he was a Member of Parliament for County Harwich, and in 1802 became a Knight for Mayo. His knighthood ended in 1813 upon the death of his father, when he acceded to the Peerage as the thirteenth Viscount Dillon of Costello-Gallen. In February 1807, Henry Augustus Dillon-Lee married Henrietta Browne, sister of Dominick, 1st Baron Oranmore and Browne, daughter of Dominick-Geoffrey Browne, by Margaret, daughter of the Hon. George Browne, 4th son of the 1st Earl of Altamont. The marriage produced nine children: Henrietta Maria (1807, Halifax - 1895, London), a social reformer, married Edward John Stanley, 2nd Baron Stanley of Alderley. Margaret Frances Florence (d. 1885), m. to geologist William John Hamilton. Louisa Anne Rose, d. 1902, m. to the Hon. Spencer-Cecil Ponsonby of Bessborough. Helena Matilda. Charles Henry, b. 1810 at Dublin, d. 1865 at Ditchley, Oxford; succeeded his father as 14th Viscount. Theobald Dominick, b. 1811; succeeded his brother as 15th Viscount. Arthur Edmund Denis, b. 1812 at London, d. 1892 at Ditchley, Oxford; succeeded his brother as 16th Viscount. Constantine Augustus, b. 1813, d. 1853. Robert George, b. 1817. Gerald-Normanby (1823 - 1880), m. to Lady Louisa-Isabella-Georgiana FitzGibbon, daughter of the Earl of Clare, had issue. Emily W. Sunstein in her biography Mary Shelley: Romance and Reality writes "the literary Lord Dillon... was said to be Eliza Rennie's lover." He died 24 July 1832. His widow died thirty years later at the Hotel Windsor, Paris, 18 March 1862, aged 73. (Wikipedia)

Peter Stephen Winkworth, his sale, Christie's, April 1, 2015, Lot 46. Exhibited Brooklyn, NY, the Brooklyn Museum (on loan, from January 17, 1969); Washington, D.C., The Museum of Graphic Art, "American Printmaking: The First 150 Years," 1969, cat. no. 25. "THE MOST IMPORTANT ENGRAVED VIEW OF [QUEBEC], AS WELL AS THE EARLIEST EXECUTED BY AN AMERICAN" (Deak) First edition, second state with the addition of a note about the defeat of Montcalm on September 13, 1759. "Probably one of the earliest American interior views" (Stokes & Haskell). This extremely important and influential view of Quebec was produced the year that the British wrenched control of the city from the French. This state of the view includes an account of Howe's defeat of Montcalm in September 1759 just outside of Quebec, one of the most important battles of the American theatre of the Seven Years' War. 1759 came to be known as England's Annus Mirabilis, or Year of Miracles, because the country's great military success against the French on several continents. This view is based on an inset that appeared in an earlier map of Quebec by Nicolas de Fer published in 1718, which was published in volume 6 (1719) of H. A. Chatelain's seven-volume "Atlas Historique" (1705-1720). Deak calls this "the most important engraved view of that city, as well as the earliest executed by an American. Interest in the northern French settlement was particularly high in 1759: in that year the city fell to the English, a landmark even in the expansion of the British empire The flowering tree that frames the left of this charming view with its fairy-tale air was transplanted by Johnston from the Chereau engraving. It was Chereau, too, who added the buildings bordering the St. Lawrence River in the immediate foreground and updated the legend supplied by de Fer from eighteen to twenty references. The American engraving provides a literal translation o fthis legend and of the title, which Chereau had boxed in a central column. Some of Johnston's original touches can be seen in the artistic lettering of the caption (more in harmony with the style of the engraving), in the firing of guns from the master ship (center), and in the error of repeating the number 7 in the crowded legend" (Deak p. 47). Deak 78. Stokes & Haskell B-17. Stauffer 1505.

        Candide, ou l'optimisme, traduit de l'allemand de Mr. le Docteur Ralph

      [Geneva: Gabriel Cramer], 1759. Duodecimo (159 × 96 mm), pp. 299. Contemporary French mottled calf, smooth spine gilt in compartments with centre flower tools, red morocco label, marbled endpapers and edges. Some very skilful, practically imperceptible repair at head of spine and to corners of front board, front joint just a little tender at foot, pale and intermittent water-staining to upper outer corner of first gathering, overall a fine copy. First edition, one of only a dozen or so recorded copies of the true first edition of this celebrated philosophical conte, one of the genuine rarities in major 18th-century literature. There were 18 editions of Candide in 1759 alone, all of them superficially alike, though only four of them, like this, have 299 pages. Recent research, following Ira Wade, Giles Barber, and Stephen Weissman, has identified this as the true first edition, with the following points: the title ornament of spray, fruit and flowers is repeated at pp. 193 and 266; p. 103, line 4, has the misprint "que ce ce fut" (corrected to "que ce fut" in later editions); p. 125, line 4, has "précisément" (corrected to "précipitamment" in later editions); with Voltaire's revisions on p. 31 eliminating an unnecessary paragraph break, and on p. 41, where several short sentences about the Lisbon earthquake were rewritten. This first edition does not preserve the cancelled paragraph on p. 242 critical of German poets (beginning "Candide était affligé") which survives unintentionally in the London edition. As in all but three known surviving copies of this edition, this copy is bound without the two terminal leaves, blank N7 and N8 containing instructions to the binder.

Los ejemplos con los que el jesuita da cuerpo a su gramática son una copiosa muestra de una lengua en plena vitalidad y, además de ser formas del mexicano hablado y escrito, son también las equivalencias que un bilingüe competente podría proporcionar en el español de la época&#148;. [Carmen Herrera, Gran diccionario del náhuatl.] &#147;Carochi taught at the Jesuit college in Tepotzotlán, Mexico, where he was one of the few priests to master the native languages of Mazahua, Nahuatl, and Otomí. First published in 1645, his Arte de la lengua Mexicana was often reprinted, and is still an essential tool of Nahuatl philology. This version was edited by the Jesuit Ignacio Paredes.&#148; [De Backer-Sommervogel] Mínimo taladro de polilla en el margen superior interno de las primeras hojas, sin afectar texto.

Accomplished in manuscript at Villaviciosa, Spain on February 18, 1759, signed by Juan Manuel Crespo, with additional inscription, on p.[3]. Light dampstaining in margins, occasional light soiling. A very good copy. A rare royal cedula issued by Ferdinand VI, King of Spain, confirming that the Secretaries of vice-royal chambers throughout the Americas do not have the rights, privileges, and emoluments held by governors, corregidores, and alcalde mayores. The decree refers to past abuses of power and finance by secretaries which were harmful to the realm, and directs Viceroys, Presidents, and Governors to ensure that secretaries, officials, and other dependents do not assume privileges which are not appropriate to their position. This copy, accomplished in manuscript at Villaviciosa, Spain on February 18, 1759, is signed by Juan Manuel Crespo, with the inscription "Yo el Rey. Por mandado del Rey Nuestro Señor." In addition, the inscription notes that this printed text is a copy of the royal cedula located in the books of the Secretary of Peru located in Madrid as of March 31, 1759. A rare proclamation regarding the limits of compensation for particular royal officials in Spanish dominions throughout the New World. Not in OCLC, Medina (BHA), or Palau.

        A Treatise on the Eye

      Edinburgh: for A. Millar at London, and for G. Hamilton and J. Balfour at Edinburgh, 1759. First edition. With 8 folding engraved plates. [2], xxxi, [ii], 450, (1 errata); [2], xxxv, [1], 435 pp. 2 vols. 8vo. Bound in full contemporary speckled calf. Light wear to spines, with front joint just starting to vol. II, internally fine. "The first important British work on the anatomy and physiology of the eye."--Garrison-Morton 1484.2. "Porterfield"s Treatise was carefully read by all of the subsequent great contributors to ophthalmology and visual science for more than a century after its publication. One of the most erudite of 18th century medical authors, Porterfield cited and quoted widely from both the "old" and "modern" authors of his day. The book"s greatest strength, however, lay in its numerous original experiments and observations about visual physiology. Among the many who stessed the usefulness of this work, with regard to their own ideas, were Thomas Young and Hermann Helmholtz."--Daniel M. Albert, in his introduction to a modern facsimile edition in the Classics of Ophthalmology series.
