A Paris, de l'imprimerie de H.L. Guérin & L.F. Delatour. 1760, 1760, in-4, XVIII-[2]-368 pages, 7 planches dépliantes, veau tabac de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, double filet sur les coupes, tranches rouges, Seconde édition, posthume et augmentée, de l'Essai d'optique sur la gradation de la lumière, publiée avec un nouveau titre au sein des Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences et établie par l'ami de l'auteur, l'abbé Nicolas Louis de La Caille. Ouvrage d'une très grande importance, rédigé par le fondateur de la photométrie ; Bouguer fut le premier à pouvoir mesurer l'intensité de la Lumière. Dans cette édition, à laquelle l'auteur travailla jusqu'à la veille de sa mort, il présente pour la première fois son invention la plus importante : le photomètre, qui lui permit de mesurer l'intensité lumineuse du soleil et de la lune. "Bouguer's achievement was to see that the eye could be used, not as a meter but as null indicator, i.e, to establish the equality of brightness of two adjacent surfaces (...) In the latter part of the Essai, Bouguer published the second of his great optical discoveries, often called Bouguer's law : in a medium of uniform transparency the light remaining in a collimated beam is an exponential function of the lenght of its part in the medium" (DSB). Ex-libris manuscrit en tête du titre. Coiffe supérieure arasée, coins et coupes usés. Bel exemplaire, les planches seules sont très légèrement brunies. DSB II, 343-44.

(ATLAS - MINIATURE). DU CAILLE, LOUIS-ALEXANDRE. [RIZZI-ZANNONI, GIOVANNI ANTONIO]
Paris: Chez Ballard, Imprimeur du Roi, 1760. FIRST EDITION. Offered here in a charming and remarkably well-preserved period binding, this is the first in a series of charming miniature atlases brought out by Louis-Alexandre du Caille for the New Year's gift ("étrennes") market. Du Caille engaged the services of the skilled cartographer Giovanni-Antonio Rizzi-Zannoni to create the miniature versions of the maps making up the contents here. The atlas opens with maps of the Eastern and Western Hemispheres, followed by those showing Europe, Asia, Africa, and the two Americas. The remaining 19 maps show Great Britain, Denmark, Sweden and Norway, France (five maps), Flanders and the Low Countries, Germany (seven maps), Prussia, Spain and Portugal, and Italy. In the words of Moreland & Bannister, Rizzi-Zannoni (1736-1814) "was a noted astronomer, surveyor and mathematician of great versatility. . . . The maps in his various atlases were beautifully engraved, showing minute detail and embellished with elaborate cartouches." The present atlas appears from time to time, but rarely with the original case or in the state of preservation seen here--and it is obvious that the former has had much to do with the latter.. 118 x 82 mm. (4 5/8 x 3 1/4"). [4] text leaves.Compiled by Giovanni Antonio Rizzi-Zannoni and L. A. du Caille. FIRST EDITION.

Giovan Battista PIRANESI (Mogliano Veneto 1720 - Roma 1778)
- RARISSIMO PRIMO STATO DI SEI - Acquaforte e bulino, 1760, firmata in lastra in basso a destra. Esemplare nel rarissimo primo stato di sei, prima dell'indirizzo dell'editore Bouchard e Gravier e dei ritocchi a bulino, della contemporanea edizione romana. Magnifica prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con pieni margini, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Della serie Vedute di Roma. L'opera consiste in 135 lastre prodotte individualmente dal Piranesi per almeno 30 anni, da circa il 1745, fino alla data della sua morte. All'opera sono aggiunte poi 2 vedute realizzate dal figlio Francesco. Per la prima volta furono edite dall'editore Giovanni Bouchard nel 1751 (34 lastre), successivamente dallo stesso Piranesi editore a Palazzo Tomati in Roma (scritta che appare su molte tavole), fino alla stesura definitiva composta da 137 lastre. Successivamente alla morte dell'autore le lastre furono ereditate dal figlio Francesco, che ne curò la pubblicazione prima nella capitale, e successivamente a Parigi. Le lastre furono poi acquisite dalla Calcografia Camerale, oggi Calcografia Nazionale, dove sono tuttora conservate. Le opere che proponiamo fanno parte di un album nella stesura definitiva, stampato a Roma tra il 1770 ed il 1780. - THE VERY RARE FIRST STATE OF SIX - Etching with engraving, 1760, signed on plate.

SPINAROSA (Filiberto Antonino).
S.l.n.d. (c. 1760). Petit in-folio. 1f. CVI. Plein veau, dos à nerfs orné (reliure de l'époque, défauts au dos et aux coiffes). Edition Originale. Cette dissertation érudite fut composée en guise de réfutation à la biographie de l'humaniste italien Paolo Sarpi (1552-1623), que venait de donner le littérateur Francesco Griselini (1717-1787) et qui suscitait une grande polémique en Italie. En effet, Griselini affirmait notamment "avoir trouvé, en lisant des manuscrits de Sarpi, que le savant servite avait découvert la circulation du sang dès 1580, constaté l'effet de l'air insuflé dans les poumons en cas de mort apparente, les variations et la déclinaison de l'aiguille aimantée, la contraction et la dilatation de l'uvée dans l'œil des animaux, corrigé les travaux de Viète sur l'algèbre, etc." (Larousse). L'auteur évoque notamment l'invraisemblance des manuscrits cités par Griselini, et discute longuement des milieux intellectuels à l'époque de Sarpi. Ce livre très rare fut certainement tiré à petit nombre et nous n'avons pu en localiser qu'un seul exemplaire conservé à la bibliothèque de Viterbo. Divers défauts à la reliure. Intérieurement, très bon exemplaire imprimé sur papier fort. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

PRICE, Charles & Senex, John.
London: Thomas Bowles, John Bowles & Son, and Robert Sayer, c.1760. Coloured. Two sheets conjoined, total 960 x 660mm. Repairs to folds. A large map of England, Wales and Scotland, with an ornate title cartouche featuring a portrait of Queen Anne, the Royal Arms and a scene of Hercules fighting the Hydra. Originally issued in 1708, it is one of the first maps to use the name 'Great Britain' after the Act of Union of 1707. It was first published by the partnership of Parker and Senex, then also with John Mexwell by 1711. By 1714 Parker had dropped out, so his name was removed from the imprint (when the map appeared in Senex's 'English Atlas'0, as did Maxwell's by 1720. In 1728 Senex became a Fellow of the Royal Society (F.R.S). This last state was published about twenty years after Senex died, still with the 1714 date and portrait of Queen Anne. Despite the long printing history this map is quite uncommon: such large-format maps are notoriously hard to store and handle, so are usually damaged. SHIRLEY: Price 2, state 6 of 6.

A Paris, de l'imprimerie de H.L. Gu?rin & L.F. Delatour. A Paris, de l'imprimerie de H.L. Guérin & L.F. Delatour, 1760, in-4, XVIII-[2]-368 pages, 7 planches dépliantes, veau tabac de l'époque, dos à nerfs et fleuronné, pièce de titre rouge, double filet sur les coupes, tranches rouges, Seconde édition, posthume et augmentée, de l'Essai d'optique sur la gradation de la lumière, publiée avec un nouveau titre au sein des Mémoires de l'Académie des Sciences et établie par l'ami de l'auteur, l'abbé Nicolas Louis de La Caille. Ouvrage d'une très grande importance, rédigé par le fondateur de la photométrie ; Bouguer fut le premier à pouvoir mesurer l'intensité de la Lumière. Dans cette édition, à laquelle l'auteur travailla jusqu'à la veille de sa mort, il présente pour la première fois son invention la plus importante : le photomètre, qui lui permit de mesurer l'intensité lumineuse du soleil et de la lune. "Bouguer's achievement was to see that the eye could be used, not as a meter but as null indicator, i.e, to establish the equality of brightness of two adjacent surfaces (...) In the latter part of the Essai, Bouguer published the second of his great optical discoveries, often called Bouguer's law : in a medium of uniform transparency the light remaining in a collimated beam is an exponential function of the lenght of its part in the medium" (DSB). Ex-libris manuscrit en tête du titre. Coiffe supérieure arasée, coins et coupes usés. Bel exemplaire, les planches seules sont très légèrement brunies. DSB II, 343-44.

BOUGUER, Pierre (1698-1758).
H.L. Guerin & L.F. Delatour, 1760. 4to. xviii, [2], 368 pp. Engraved printer's device on title-page, 7 engraved folding plates. Contemporary full mottled calf, raised bands, gilt-stamped spine panels and spine title; a few minor cover scars. Fine. FIRST EDITION. Bouguer, a brilliant French mathematician, astronomer and geophysicist, a child prodigy trained by his father, made some of the earliest recorded measurements in photometry. This is his final (and posthumous) work by the "father of photometry." / In 1729 he had published Essai d'optique sur la gradation de la lumiere, the object of which was to define the quantity of light lost by passing through a given extent of the atmosphere, and he became the first known discoverer of what is now more commonly known as the Beer-Lambert law. Bouguer found the light of the sun to be 300 times more intense than that of the moon, and thus made some of the earliest measurements in photometry. "Just before he died, Bouguer completed a much larger book [this one] on photometry, the Traite d'optique sur la gradation de la lumiere. . . The Traite goes far beyond the Essai [d'optique sur la gradation de la lumiere, (1729)], describing a number of ingenious kinds of photometers, including a method of goniophotometry, and even attempting an elaborate theory of the reflection of light from rough surfaces, although this was not successful. The third and last part of the book, however, gives a valid elementary theory of the horizontal visual range through an obscuring atmosphere, arriving at a law, usually credited to H. Koschmieder, conside … [Click Below for Full Description]

"THE GREAT RUSSIAN EMPIRE ACCORDING TO THE LATEST OBSERVATIONS ""Spatiosissimum Imperium Russiae Magnae juxta recentissimas Observationes Mappa Geographica."" ?Copper engraving by Conrad Tobias Lotter, published in Augsburg 1760. Original hand colouring with later additions. Size: 50 x 57 cm. Detailed map of the Russian Empire, covering the region from Norway in the northwest to Kamchatka and (a part of) Japan in the east, including China and Korea. To the south it runs from Georgia (not shown as part of Russia) across the Caspian Sea, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tibet. It is filled with place names, and even includes nomadic tent encampments along the central Asian trade routes. The map shows some of the interesting cartographic anomalies of the period: a mishapen Novaya Zemlya in the Arctic Ocean; a large island in the area of the Bering Strait; and Kamchatka is one landmass through the Kuriles to Hokkaido. The map is decorated with a cartouche attended by a classical Amazon warrior, two Chinese merchants with rhino horns, a map and instruments to navigate maps. The cartouche is topped with the double headed eagle of the Russian Empire. Price: Euro550,- ? ?".

Fold lines; staining at top and bottom edges; some losses to paper at edges, not affecting text; else very good. Unrecorded eighteenth century polemical broadside in the tradition satirist Ned Ward or the mock poem Hudibras. While the present broadside includes only a few lines of poetry, like Hudibras it appears to describe a religious controversy between a "Methodist Grub-Street Printer" named Don Dismallo Thickscullo de Halfwitto and another printer, Dicko-Don-Quacko.The broadside reports that the printers' dispute was also carried out in dueling newspapers, the eighteenth century equivalent of an internet "flame war." That the dispute was ongoing seems to be implied in the manuscript addition written at the top of the broadside: "Third Part." The broadside states: "The Methodists and their Printer having erected their Battery of Lampoonary against the Printer of the Paper call'd Helter Skelter, He hereby declares a Paper War, against all Dicko Don Quack's Mendicant Crew." A mention in the broadside of a work printed by the "Methodist Grub-Street Printer" concerning Pondicherry may well help to date the broadside to after 1761 when British forces in India defeated the French at Pondicherry.

Glasgow: R. & A. Foulis, 1760. Glasgow: R. & A. Foulis,, 1760. with a Proposal for Supplying the Nation with Money. First published at Edinburgh MDCCV. Duodecimo (167 x 105 mm). Uncut in original boards, rebacked to style. Final advertisement leaf present. Expertly refurbished with extremities repaired and loose leaves re-inserted. A very good, uncut copy. Second Foulis Press edition, originally published by the press in 1750, first published in London in 1705. The Foulis Press was renowned for the quality of their paper, typography and book design, and their works are rarely found uncut in boards. Money and Trade Considered was the seminal work of the Scottish financial adventurer and French finance minister John Law (1671-1729), in which he argued that an expansion of the money supply would produce an expansion in output and consequently an export surplus. He therefore proposed that Scotland should expand the money supply backed up with the security of the land. His ideas were put into practice by the French state with the creation of the Mississippi Company, with its subsequent bubble and collapse often blamed on Law's monetary theories. His ideas have been seen as proto-Keynesian, in both a favourable and a negative light.

Immanuel KANT) BEDDOES, Thomas
1760. First edition of THE FIRST ENGLISH DISCUSSION OF KANT'S "CRITIQUE OF PURE REASON". Thomas Beddoes (1760-1808) studied chemistry at Oxford before moving to Bristol to practise medicine; there he became part of a group of active opponents of government policy that included the publisher Joseph Cottle, and the poets Robert Southey and Samuel Taylor Coleridge. ‘In the field of philosophy, Beddoes’s most important contribution is represented by the work Observations on the Nature of Demonstrative Evidence (1793). This work, published after he gave up teaching at Oxford, had in fact been ready in September 1792. It is notable because it is the first text in English in which a passage from Kant’s first Critique is discussed directly. He quotes section 2 of the Introduction to the second edition, on necessity and strict universality as the distinctive signs of a priori knowledge, and discusses Kant’s text at length. Necessity and cause are merely linguistic abbreviations. To observation and to induction alone, whatever Mr. Kant may imagine, it is easy to see that we owe our knowledge of the absolute necessity or strict universality of geometrical truths. Every one of us, by calling to mind the train of his own thoughts, may assure himself that, in studying Euclid, however rapid, and however easy the process of induction, we have at least, in imagination, varied the forms of the diagrams, and finding the reasoning equally applicable to all imaginable varieties, have assented to the truth of the propositions; and hence the strict universality of mathematical truths.
