        Cosmologische Briefe über die Einrichtung des Weltbaues.

      Augspurg, Eberhard Kletts Wittib., 1761. Contemporary white-dyed sheepskin. Spine with a bit of surface wear, old hand-written paper-label to spine. XXVIII, 317 pp. A stamp inside front free end-paper. Light browning, scattered marginal brownspots, but in general a fine copy. A few leaves in "Vorrede" misbound.. The scarce first edition of Lambert's sensational "Cosmological Letters", his most important astronomical work, in which he to a large extent fore-shadowed the documentation of the basic features of the universe that Hershel later carried out.The work became very popular and was translated into French, Russian, and English, and it was later re-written and published as "Systeme du Monde" in Berlin, 1770. "Of special interest among Lambert's astronomical writings - apart from applications of his physical doctrines - are his famous Cosmologische Briefe über die Einrichtung des Weltbaues" (Augsburg, 1761).Not familiar with the similar ideas of Thomas Wright (1750) and with Kant's "Allgemeine Naturgeschichte und Theorie des Himmels" (1755), Lambert had the idea that what appears as the Milky Way might be the visual effect of a lens-shaped universe. On this basis he elaborated a theory according to which the thousand of stars surrounding the sun constituted a system. Moreover he considered the Milky Way as a large number of such systems, that is, a system of higher order...; the "Cosmologische Briefe was a great sensation and was translated into French, Russian, and English. Only when William Hershel systematically examined the heavens telescopically and discovered numerous nebulae and "telescopic milky-ways" did it become obvious that Lambert's description was not mere science fiction but to a large extent a bold vision of the basic features of the universe" (Scriba in D.S.B. VII:598). Kant's mentor (Martin Knutzen) died in 1755, three years before the pre-critical project unfolded. But Kant still had the chance of meeting kindred spirits. One of these was the great philosopher and mathematician Johann Heinrich Lambert, whom he admired a great deal. Finally he had encountered a thinker who appreciated both the scientific and metaphysical perspective, who worried about their tensions, and who was searching for a truce. In his "Cosmologische Briefe..." (Cosmological Letters on the establishment of the universe), Lambert worked on the same topic as Kant had worked on in his earlier Universal Natural History. The tasks and results of both works resemble each other, in so far as they were both proposals of integrating Newtonian physics into a larger framework, and they both contained a theory of the dynamic constitution of the universe. Furthermore, as Kant's scientific works should be viewed under the perspective of his general philosophical outlook, so must Lambert's work in physics and astronomy be seen in relation to his general philosophical outlook and his perpetual quest for introducing mathematical exactness into the sciences. "Lambert's efforts to improve communication and collaboration in astronomy were noteworthy. He promoted the publication of astronomical journals and founded "Berliner astronomisches Jahrbuch oder Ephemeriden". Many of the articles that he contributed to it were not published until after his death... He also favored the founding of the Berlin observatory. These suggestions, in line with Leibniz' far-reaching plans for international cooperation of scientific societies, inaugurated a new period of scientific teamwork." (D.S.B., VII:598)

        (von).

      En swensk ingenieur-corps uti fäldt med dess tilhörige sysslor. Greifswald, A. F. Röse, 1761. 8:o. (8),96,(8) s. Häftad i samtida gråpappomslag med en handskriven titeltext på den delvis defekta ryggen. Ren och fin inlaga. Från Trolleholm.. Med en tryckt dedikation till chefen för den svenska armén i Pommern Jacob Albrecht von Lantingshausen. Arbin hade redan 1756 ansökt om adelskap och hoppades uppnå detta som belöning för ingenjörskårsinstruktionen. "Vid den tidens ställning i rikets allmänna ärenden" måste han emellertid nöja sig med ett kejserligt romerskt riksadelskap, som Lantingshausen utverkade åt honom, och först följande år, 1762, vann han den åtrådda utmärkelsen

        Abbildungen der Pflanzen, welche in den Königreichen Dännemark und Norwegen, in den Herzogthümern Schleswig und Holstein, und in den Grafschaften Oldenburg und Delmenhorst wild wachsen: zu Erläuterung des unter dem Titel FLORA DANICA, auf Königl. Befehl veranstalteten Werks von diesen Pflanzen, herausgegeben von Georg Christian Oeder (und Otho Friderich Müller). 1.-5. Band (Tomus I-V, = Fasc. 1-15).

      Kopenhagen (Copenhagen), Nicolaus Möller, (1761) 1766-82. Folio. (37,5x25,5 cm.). Bound in five beautiful contemporary uniform full mottled calf w. six raised bands, creating seven compartments, which are profusely gilt. Leather title-labels reading "FLORA DANICA" All edges marbled. Capitals of 2 volumes w. a few minor tears, corners a bit bumped, otherwise very well-kept. Each volume w. title-page in red and black (the third volume has the Latin title-page: "Icones Plantarum", though). Half-titles and text-leaves w. the plant-names of each fascicle (15) and all 900 engraved plates in exquisite, uniform original hand-colouring. 14 plates are folded because of the size (a few of these w. a small tear and a few are a bit shaved). Internally a practically mint copy, in which all of the plates for all five volumes are printed on handmade paper w. the water-mark "J. Haring og Zonen"; also w. the tissue-guard for each plate has this water-mark (this fine paper is characteristic for the first volumes of the work, the later volumes are printed on less good paper). Volumes 1-4 have the super ex-libris of the German natural scientist August Zorn on the inside of front boards and a little circular stamp on verso of Title-pages.. This is the original printing of the first 5 volumes of the greatest illustrated work in Danish book-production, and the largest Flora ever produced. The Flora Danica ranks among the finest floras ever compiled. The earlier plates, in particular, are extremely delicately engraved and beautifully coloured; the later fascicles and volumes, however, were printed on an unattractive type of paper, and the colouring gradually deteriorated. The colouring in this copy of the first 900 plates is of the highest uniform quality throughout, and must be seen as superior in quality in comparison to an average copy, as these often show variation in the colouring. The work became the model for the most prestigious 18th century luxury dinner service in production today, bearing the same name "Flora Danica" and produced by the Royal Copenhagen Porcelain Factory. The decorations on the porcelain are copied from the engraved plates. - Sitwell, Great Flower Books, p. 124 - Nissen: 2249 - Hunt: 594 - Pritzel: 6799
