        PHILOSOPHIAE NATURALIS PRINCIPIA MATHEMATICA; Perpetuis Commentariis illustrata, communi studio PP. Thomae Le Seur & Francisci Jacquier, Ex Gallicana Minimorum Familia, Matheseos Professorum. Editio altera longe accuratior & emendatior

      Coloniae Allobrogum, Cl. & Ant. Philibert, 1760.. SECOND JESUITS' EDITION, 1760, published in Geneva, 3 volumes, complete set. 4to, approximately 250 x 195 mm, 10 x 7¾ inches, title page in Volume 1 printed red and black, Volumes 2 & 3 printed in black only, as issued, profusely illustrated throughout with diagrams, engraved pictorial headpiece to first chapter in Volumes 1 & 2, Latin text. Pagination: Volume1: xxxii, 548; Volume 2: [8], 422; Volume 3: [8], xxviii, 703, pages 501-504 in Volume 1 bound out of order, seems to be the same in all copies located, Volume 1 has a half-title but no half-titles to the other volumes as issued, Volume 3 is printed in 2 parts, the second of which has only a drop head title at page 376 as required, there are 2 different pages numbered 375-76, a printer's error, there are a few more pagination errors but all volumes collated and guaranteed complete. Bound in half calf over marbled boards, green gilt lettered labels between raised bands, just stating NEWTON, gilt volume number to each volume. Bindings rubbed, hinges cracked on Volume 1, but still holding firm, 12 mm (½ inch) hole to top of hinge on Volume 3, Volume 2 top hinge has 40 mm (1½ inch) crack, but still holding firm, other hinges rubbed but all covers holding firm, corners worn with board showing through at most tips, green labels unevenly faded, 4 pages have very small holes to top margins, not affecting text, 1 top margin has very small chip, all paper flaws but not affecting text, 2 pages lightly dusty and a few top margins have a light brown horizontal stain, not affecting text, 3 pages have tips of corners missing, paper flaws, some occasional light age-browning due to different paper stock used, small neat old ink inscription to the top margin of each title page, 3 ink shelf numbers to top of the first free endpaper of each volume, occasional small spots and creases as is usual in old books, otherwise a very good set of this classic work. This edition first published in Geneva in 1739 is known as the "Jesuits" edition although the 2 editors Le Seur and Jacquier were Minims not Jesuits. The text of the Principia is that of the third edition, each volume contains a separate book of Principia and the 3rd Volume contains in addition "Traite sur le flux et reflux de la mer. Par mr. Daniel Bernoully": Volume 3, pages 133-246. "De causa physica fluxus et refluxus maris. A d. d. Mac-Laurin": Volume 3, pages 247-282. "Inquisitio physica in causam fluxus et refluxus maris. A d. d. Euler": Volume 3, pages 283-274. These were three prize-winning essays submitted in 1724 to the Academie des Sciences to resolve "the Problem relating to the Motion of the Tides from the theory of gravity". The third volume also contains a long Introductio ad lunae theoriam Newtonionam on pages 537-677. The Jesuits' edition is valued for its copious commentary. See Derek Gjertsen, The Newton Handbook page 477: "With its rich editorial content, extensive summaries and detailed index, the Jesuit edition remains the most ambitious ever published. Between 1727 and 1871 and excluding translations, the only editions of Principia published were Jesuit editions. It is still a desirable and useful work". See also the Babson Catalogue page 19.

La prima edizione della Bibbia annotata dal Du Hamel era apparsa a Parigi nel 1705. "In his choice of opinions, Duhamel shows great impartiality and unbiased judgment. His admiration for empirical science does not make him despise the speculations of his predecessors, but he examines and criticizes both sides carefully, tries to reconcile them, and, if this be impossible, gives his own opinion."

        Catalogue des Livres, Tableaux, Desseins et Estampes de feu M. le Comte de Vence, Lieutenant Général des Armées du Roy, Commandant à la Rochelle, & Colonel du Régiment Royal-Corse

      Finely engraved frontis. port. of the collector (with an earlier state bound-in, see below) & engraved arms on title. 2 p.l., iv, 151 pp.; 2 p.l., xliv pp. Two parts in one vol. 8vo, 19th-cent. red morocco-backed marbled boards, spine gilt, outer & lower edges uncut. Paris: Prault fils aîné, 1760. A marvelous association copy of this important catalogue of the notable book and art collections formed by the Comte de Vence (1703-60), one of the richest collections of the period. "Ce bibliophile distingué s'était composé de livres, mais encore un riche cabinet d'objets d'art et d'antiquités, tels que tableux, estampes, dessins, bronzes antiques, etc., etc."-Guigard, II, pp. 468-69. This special copy belonged to the painter Jean Baptiste Descamps (1714-91), who was also the Comte de Vence's art advisor, with Descamps's signature on the title. It is printed on superior paper and contains two states of the engraved portrait of the Comte by Watelet after Cochin, the first issue before "armes" and the other "aux armes." The first part of the catalogue describes the books (1771 lots). Of special interest to the Comte was Provence: there are 225 titles covering its geography, history, government, law, and literature, as well as genealogies of illustrious local families. His library has been recently described as one of the most important in France at that time (see François Moureau, La Plume et le Plomb: Espaces de l'Imprimé et du Manuscrit au Siècle des Lumières, 2006). The Comte de Vence's collection of paintings, drawings and prints was considered to be among the foremost of his day, selected with the assistance of Descamps, the author of the influential La Vie des Peintres flamands, allemands et hollandaise (1753-1763), for which see especially Vol. II, p. 165 ("Le Cabinet de M. Le Comte de Vence"). It should be noted that the Comte de Vence was the dedicatee of Descamps's book, reflecting their close relationship. The sale of art (247 lots) included major masterpieces by French and non-French artists (among the latter are Maes, Steenwyck the Elder, Breughel the Elder, and Rembrandt). This section of the catalogue has been priced in a contemporary hand (and with the occasional buyer's name in a later hand). Fine copy. I have not had this rare catalogue before. With the signature of Louis Clement de Ris (1820-82), purchased by him in 1864. He was a great art collector and served as a Conservateur at the Louvre and subsequently at Versailles. ❧ Lugt 1121. Decamps: Benezit, Vol. 4., p. 762. .

Giving a particular account of the climate, soil, minerals, animals, vegetables, manufactures, trade, commerce, and languages, together with the religion, government, genius, character, manners and customs of the Indians and other inhabitants."

      London: Thomas Jeffreys. 1760. "First edition, folio, 2 vols. in 1; pp. [8], 132, *129-*142, 133-168; [4], 246 (with numerous errors in pagination); 18 large folding engraved maps and plans; contemporary sprinkled calf, neatly rebacked to match, red morocco label on spine; moderate wear to extremities, some very light spotting to a few maps, otherwise a nice, large copy. & & The last and most complete issue of this wonderful book, with 14pp. of additional text inserted (in most copies only 10pp. are inserted); this copy also contains the cancel on p. 80 of the second volume which is often wanting. & & Issued in the middle of the French and Indian War, this grand work provided English readers with a detailed assessment of the French possessions in America. The first part of the work is devoted to Canada and Louisiana and is based for the most part on the work of Charlevoix, Labat, and the Jesuit Relations. After the book's initial publication, additional materials regarding the siege and capture of Quebec were made available and part of the narrative was subsequently rewritten and inserted with starred pages into the volume. As previously noted, most copies with extra pages contain only 10 starred pages. This copy, like the Streeter copy, contains 14; the four extra pages contain an account of ""The French attempt to retake Quebec in 1760."" & & The second part of the book contains an account of the French possessions in the Caribbean and South America, including Santo Domingo, Guadaloupe, Grenada, Cayenne, etc. The fine, large maps included in this book are of particular interest and importance. They include town plans of Quebec, Montreal, Louisbourg, and New Orleans, as well as maps of Canada and the Ohio and Mississippi country.

        L' Afrique Divisee En Ses Principaux Etats

      Engraved, hand colored, decorative cartouche, ample margins, 43.7 x 30 cm (17 1/2" x 12"). A couple of sturdy old repairs, stain in top margin, not affecting image, left edge with small chip; otherwise very good, bright and with a strong impression. Janivier was a French geographer that was active in the second half of the 18th century. According to Norwich and Tooley, Janivier produced a series of maps in 1760, and collaborated in an Atlas Moderne in 1762 and 1771.The present map is number 28 from that atlas. This rather handsome engraved map, which has full color, appears to present the cartographic knowledge of Africa in the mid 18th century. The map is fairly accurate, and shows the only settlements in southern Africa, and also features a few Hottentot tribes. The cartouche, which is in the lower left part of the map, shows a few tress, a leopard stalking, and a crocodile near the bottom. Norwich 104. Tooley p. 59.

        Theorie de l'Impot. [Bound with:] [PESSELIER, Charles]. Doutes proposés à l'Auteur de la Théorie de l'Impôt.

      No place: No printer, 1760-61 - 2 works bound together in 1 volume, quarto (255 x 193 mm). Contemporary French mottled calf, spine decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco label, marbled endpapers. Engraved armorial bookplate to front pastedown. Lower edge a little rubbed, with corners worn, very occasional spotting. Excellent copies. First edition of each work. The Théorie de l'Impôt is a spirited and able attack upon the financial administration of France, and especially upon the "fermiers généraux", whom Mirabeau regarded as parasites preying upon the vitals of the nation. The work highlights the problems and injustices of the French system of taxation, and added fuel to the fire of the coming revolution. The king disapproved of the work; Mirabeau was imprisoned on 16 December 1760, but through the efforts of Madame de Pompadour and others, was released on Christmas Eve, under orders to leave Paris for his estate at Bignon. The work proposes a reorganization of financial administrative machinery, the abolition of the "Fermes", a reduction in the taxation upon salt, with the object of increasing the total yield, and a special tax upon tobacco farms. The domaine, the post, and the mint were to be further sources of revenue. The author ranks as one of the earliest important writers on taxation. Higgs notes that the book is "of real importance in the history of financial theory" (The Physiocrats, p. 57). Pesselier was one of the most forceful critics of the physiocrats, and he here attacks Mirabeau's Théorie de l'impôt, published the previous year. The present work is notable, however, for its terse affirmation of the characteristically physiocratic doctrine that agriculture holds a privileged place in the economic system; of the products of the soil Pesselier writes, "Elles procurent un profit net et durable puisqu'elles sont à l'abri de l'imitation".

        The Dramatic Works of Aaron Hill, Esq

      London - T. Lownds, 1760 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce collection of playwright Aaron Hill published only a decade after his death. In need of attention to the binding but well worth the effort. Bound in calf with gilt lettering and decoration. Complete in Two Volumes. With a life of Aaron Hill and a list of subscribers in Volume One. This work matches the ESTC record,#T34928. With a T. Lownds publisher's catalogue to the rear of Volume Two. Aaron Hill, 1685 - 1750, was a writer and entrepreneur. Recent cultural historians have accorded Hill a far more interesting and pivotal role as a pioneer of developments in stage scenery and drama, as a theorist of the Longinian sublime, and particularly for his unceasing activities on behalf of writers of very different political persuasions and literary gifts -ODNB. Condition: The text block bindings are tight and firm. The boards are detached. Therear boardof volume two is held by the cords only. There is significant wear to the extremities,including significantrubbing and edge wear, with marks andsome loss. The spine labels are missing.

        Monasterio del Puig (Valencia)] Historia de la imagen sagrada de la Virgen Ssma. del Puig, primera, y principal patrona de la Ciudad, y Reyno de Valencia: reducida a una prudente Critica, con que se compruevan todas sus maravillosas circunstancias. Su autor

      Valencia, por Joseph Thomàs Lucas, 1760. - 21x15 cm., 14 hojas, 280 pp., 4 hojas. Una lámina grabada con la Virgen del Puche. Encuadernación en pergamino flexible de la época, fatigada (falta parte del lomo), primer cuadernillo suelto, pero obra completa. Edición original de esta interesante y bien trabajada historia de la veneración a la virgen del Puig en su santuario, conocido desde la conquista de Valencia por Jaume I. Este monasterio mercedario del municipio del Puig de Santa María (Horta), fue fundado sobre la iglesia hecha construir en 1238 por Jaime I, y dada (1240) a la orden de la Merced de resultas de la conquista de Valencia, aunque Alfonso I (1135) y Pedro I (1190) habían prometido el pueblo a los monjes de Poblet, para que cuando fuese conquistada, hicieran una abadía filial. Durante el siglo XIV se levantó un nuevo templo, gótico, que aún subsiste, y entre el XVI y el XVIII, el actual edificio monacal. Los padres mercedarios lo ocuparon hasta el 1835. Muchos años después, en 1948, ocuparon de nuevo el monasterio hasta la actualidad. En este monasterio se celebran actos de romería y también de afirmación nacionalista valenciana. Palau 154321.
