A fine set of this important journal, with ten notable contributions in the history of medicine: HUNTER, William (1718-1783). "The history of an aneurysm of the aorta, with some remarks on aneurysms in general". Vol I, pp. 323-357. First recorded case of arteriovenous aneurysm. Garrison-Morton-Norman 2974. HUNTER, William.

WHITE, Charles (1728-1813). "An account of a new method of reducing shoulders (without the use of an ambe) which have been several months dislocated, in cases where the common methods have proved inefficient". Vol II, pp. 373-81. "White's method of reducing shoulder dislocations by means of suspending the patient from the affected arm. This method either reduced the dislocation entirely, or moved the head of the humerus into a position where it could be reduced by traditional methods such as applying the surgeon's heel to the axilla" (Garrison-Morton-Norman 4407). BARD, John (1716-1799). "A case of extra-uterine foetus". Vol II, pp. 369-72.

"Experiments and observations on the urine in a diabetes". Vol. V, pp. 298-316. "Dobson proved that the sweetish taste of diabetic urine was produced by sugar, an observation following on Willis's discovery of the sweetness of diabetic urine. He also discovered hyperglycemia" (Garrison-Morton-Norman 3928). FOTHERGILL, John. "Remarks on that complaint commonly known under the name of the sick head-ach". Vol. VI, pp. 103-37.

Les différentes parties de cet ouvrage ont été lues dans les séances de cette Académie entre 1754 et 1758. Illustré par trois planches contenant 44 figures.

The (engraved) text and engraved plates of parts 7 and 8 are included in facsimile. Added to our copy is a copy of the reprint edition with commentary by Sacher. Hahn also published another work on spiders entitled Die arachniden, which couldn't be completed due to his premature death. Lacking parts 7-8 and of 3 pages of letterpress in part 2, as noted above. General title-page detached and a few small spots. Binding rubbed along the extremities. Overall in very good condition.

        Novum Testamentum. Juxta Exemplar Millianum. Typis Joannis Baskerville.

      E Typographeo Clarendoniano, Oxonii [Oxford] 1763 - 8vo, pp. [iv], 676. Near-contemporary tree calf, spine elaborately gilt in compartments, red morocco label, marbled endpapers, edges yellow. Some light toning and spotting. Expertly rebacked (by Bernard Middleton) with old backstrip laid down, hinges relined. An attractive copy. In 1758 Baskerville proposed the casting of a new set of Greek types to the Oxford University Press, and they ordered 2000 copies of this octavo New Testament (plus 500 in quarto) to be printed with the resulting type - which ended up being its only use. Negative critical reception may have contributed to its abandonment, but Baskerville's Greek face has recently been reassessed by Gerry Leonidas as an important predecessor of more modern types (if perhaps not quite as elegant as that used by the Foulis press) that had fallen afoul of an arbitrary typographic orthodoxy.

        The Holy Bible, Containing the Old Testament and the New: Translated out of the Original Tongues, and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised.

      1763 - Cambridge: John Baskerville, 1763. Folio (495 x 435mm).; bound by the Durham Insect Roll Binder in full contemporary morocco, boards with eleborate gilt borders, including the signatory insect roll within which is a border including bishop's mitre and castle gatehouse tools, spine with raised bands fully gilt in compartments with contrasting red leather lettering piece, gilt rolls to board edges and turn ins, marbled endpapers; pp. [1-6 (xylographic and typographic title with 'lozenge-and-star' ornaments, verso blank, dedication, contents, and subscribers)], [7-716 (Old Testament)], [717-883 (Apocrypha)], [884 (blank)], [885-886 (typographic New Testament part-title with 'lozenge-and-star' ornaments, verso blank)], [887-1123 (New Testament)], [1124 (blank)], [1125-1141 (index)], [1142-1144 (tables of scripture measures, weights, and coins)], [1145-1146 (tables of time, offices, and kindred)]; Some scuffing and abrasions to binding affecting some of the gilt work, internally some occasional light browning and light stains, signs of a removed bookplate, some abrasion and reinforcement to top corner of title-page presumably from the removal of an ink name or insription, small paper repair to inner gutter of title-page, generally a very good copy. This copy was furbished by Bernard Middleton and has his pencil signature at the rear. First Baskerville printed Bible with third version of Subscribers' list (with a manuscript correction to the entry for Lancelot Allgood.) John Baskerville (1706-1775) was appointed University Printer at Cambridge in 1758, and issued a prospectus for his folio Bible the following year. The Cambridge Bible, one of Baskerville's greatest achievements, was published in 1763 in an edition of 1,250 copies, and, although the sales were disappointingly slow and the financial rewards meagre, it came to be regarded as one of the greatest British achievements in book-production. This copy in an elaborate binding by the 'Durham Insect Roll Binder' using the scarce third insect roll recorded on only two other books, another Baskerville Bible in Durham University Library and a copy of Sermons by William Adey in Bishop Cosin's Library also in Durham. The 'Durham Insect Roll Binder' was the principle binder at work in Durham for between two and three decades from about 1740-41. The epithet by which he is known derived from the most distinctive tools associated with his workshop, rolls depicting a variety of naturalistically drawn insects. Three such rolls, used successively, have been linked with him. This binding is similar in stature to the Baskerville Bible in Durham University Library "a much more splendid binding than any other so far associated with this binder" although additionally tooled with bishop's mitre and castellated gatehouse tools. The provenance of the Bible is patchy. There is an ink inscription on the recto of the front free endpaper which reads "Purchased from Mrs Clackson Executrix of her husband John Clackson dec's, successors of Wm Scott Esq of Broad Chase Newcastle. 1796". Below this inscription a sheet of paper has been tipped in with a manuscript fair copy of an entry about Baskerville taken from Johnson's Biographical Magazine. This covers signs of an earlier bookplate and an ink name or inscription has been erased from the title-page. Given the manuscript correction to the address of Lancelot Allgood on the Subscribers' List it is appealing to attribute the original ownership of this Bible to him. This supposition is reinforced when the provenance of the similarly bound Bible which is in Durham University Library is considered. That copy belonged to the Reed family who lived in Chipchase Castle. The Reeds had bought Chipchase Castle from George Allgood, Lancelot Allgood's uncle-in-law who lived in neighbouring Nunwick Hall. There are further links between the families as both Lancelot's son and grandson married into the Reed family. Lancelot Allgood died in 1782. The whereabouts of the Bib [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The first plate is titled Fourneaux, Ustencilles &c., the following fifteen Chymie, the seventeenth plate Chymie, Cristallisation des Sels, and the penultimate and final plates are also under Chymie. Plate 15 is continued on a second sheet. 2 pages (247 & 249) from volume I of the Encyclopà die (1751) including Comparaison de la chymie avec la poà sie and Causes qui s'opposent aujourd'hui à ses progrà s 30 pages (408-437) from volume III of the Encyclopà die (1753) including information on La chymie en gà nà ral, Les chemistes cà là bres, and L'histoire de la chymie 3 pages (367, 731 & 732) from volume VIII of the Encyclopà die (1765) including La chymie hydraulique de M.le comte de la Garaye, L'influence des astres à tablie dans la chymie par les alchymistes and Rà tablie par Urbain Hierne 1 page (145) from volume IX of the Encyclopà die (1765) including La description d'un laboratoire de chymie 6 pages (272, 339, & 339-342) from volume X of the Encyclopà die (1765) including Arnauld de Villeneuve, Les explications mà chaniques de la dissolution, and Comment la chymie a imità la nature dans la minà ralisation des mà taux 1 page (201) from volume XV of the Encyclopà die (1765) including Partie de la chymie, appellà e simia par les Arabes 1 page (92) from volume XVII of the Encyclopà die (1765) including Avantages que la chymie a tirà s de l'invention de verre 1 page (880) from volume III of the Supplà ment à l'Encyclopà die (1777) which includes La connoissance de la chymie nà cessaire au mà decin 5 pages (336-340) from volume IV of the Supplà ment à l'Encyclopà die (1777) which includes Union de la chymie & de la physique With some browning to a few leaves. This suite of plates opens with a double-page view of the laboratory, and shows much of the apparatus used therein. A number of tables of elements follow, with their symbols included. Many detailed illustrations of different scientific instruments and devices are shown, with particular attention paid to kilns and crucibles, beakers and balances. Some experiments and their apparatus are shown, including the method for crystallisation. The suite closes with an attractive engraved plate, an allegory of chemistry. Several articles from the text volumes are included with this suite of plates, and among these are some of the contributions of Paul Jacques Malouin, most notably Alchimie and Alchimiste. After entering the French Academy of Sciences, Malouin was appointed Professor of Chemistry at the Jardin du Roi. He later became Mà decin de la Reine and physician to the Dauphine. In 1753 he was appointed a Fellow of the Royal Society and in 1767 was made a professor at the Collà ge de France. In 1776 he was appointed professor at the Royal College where he took up the Chair of Medicine. His Treatise of Chemistry (1734) is considered his greatest work, although he was also a prolific Encyclopà dist, contributing to Diderot's Encyclopà die and to Charles-Joseph Panckoucke's Encyclopà die Mà thodique. Other entries include Chymie, Hydraulique, Laboratoire, and Menstrue by Gabriel François Venel, a French doctor, pharmacist and chemist. He was the main contributor to the Encyclopà die for all subjects concerned with chemistry, and his papers became renowned for their somewhat controversial contents, in particular Menstrue.

        Noticia Historico Natural de los gloriosos triumphos y felices adelantamientos conseguidos en el presente siglo por los religiosos del Orden de N.P.S. Agustin en las Missiones que tienen a su cargo en las Islas Philipinas, y en el grande Imperio de la China

      First edition. A very rare work on the progress of the Augustinians missions in South East Asia, Philippines and China; it includes an immense array of information on the costumes, religion, ethnology, superstitions, manners and way of life of the natives -of the Philippines-, habits, religion, geography, products, and progress of the faith. It is also a lengthy and substantial source for the state of the region shortly before the expulsion of the Jesuits. Furthermore, mostly all that Mozo writes comes from original sources and his own observations not printed before; for example the letters by Father Balthasar Isisigana and Father Antolin de Arzaga.

      London: Printed for J. Nourse, Bookseller in Ordinary to his Majesty, 1763. First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good +. First Edition. 8vo; viii,183, [1]; iv,32 pp, with 296 geometrical figures and perspective designs on 14 folding engraved plates. Prefaces to both titles signed: W. Emerson. Contemporary full leather, the spine ribbed and divided into six compartments with a red morocco lettering piece stamped in gilt in the second. A Very Good or better copy, the front hinge skillfully (and almost invisibly) reinforced, the pages and plates free of stains and foxing, save for the first 10 leaves of the first book, which have been professionally restored on the top inner edge (with no loss of text) where they were worm eaten. Both First Editions of elementary works on geometry and perspective, the first divided into eight books. Both works start with definitions, axioms, and postulates, followed by numerous problems (keyed into the 296 figures, in the case of the first book) and their solutions. ESTC Citation Nos. T77181 and T77180. Like his fellow County Durham savant John Bird, the astronomer and instrument designer, Emerson makes a fictional appearance in Thomas Pynchon's 'Mason and Dixon.' He was the very archetype of the English eccentric: According to onAge of Enlightenmente account, Emerson dressed in old clothes and his manners were uncouth. He wore his shirt back to front and his legs wrapped in sacking so as not to scorch them as he sat over the fire. He complained about the expense of all the candles he had used during a lifetime studying mathematics, mechanics (he apparently never advanced a proposition he had not tested, nor published an invention without first proving its effects by a model) and music, including the theory of sounds and the ancient and modern scales. He died on 20 May 1782 at his small estate in Weardale, where his gravestone bears epitaphs in Latin and Hebrew.

Although it was returned the following year in the treaty which ended the Seven Years' War, the Spanish were deeply alarmed at the vulnerability of one of their most important cities in New Spain, and launched a detailed inquiry. This document, evidently extracted from a larger report, consists of the testimony of six naval officials involved in the Spanish defense. Apparently not in Palau.

        18th Century Moroccan Souvenir Purse.

      1763 10.5 x 16.5cm. Red morocco ornately decorated in gold & silver silk thread, lined in royal blue silk with tan morocco separation flap, red & gold braided silk toggle. 'TETUAN' embroidered on the back & 'Gore Townsend Esqr. 1763' on the front under the closing flap; front morocco sl. faded & interior silk sl. worn, but otherwise in extremely fine condition.This purse was made in Tetuan, Morocco (based on the embroidery on the back) for Gore Townsend, c.1752-1826 of Honington Hall County Warwick. Townsend married Lady Elizabeth Windsor, daughter of Other Lewis Windsor, 4th Earl of Plymouth on 30 March, 1776. The purse seems to have passed from Gore to his daughter Harriet who - in 1801 - married Sir Grey Skipwith, 8th Baronet and MP for North Warwickshire. Together they had twenty children; their eldest son Thomas George Skipwith succeeded his father and became the 8th Baronet. Enclosed in the purse is a letter dated August 8th, 1821 from an 18-year-old Thomas George to his father which includes a short note and four verses of amateur poetry.

        Centuria insectorum rariorum quam consent. experimentiss. fac. med. in regia academia Upsaliensi, praeside nobilissimo atque celeberrimo D:o Doct. Carolo von Linné... publico examini submittit Boas Johansson, Calmariensis.

      Upsala, [no publisher indicated], 1763. 4to (21.0 x 16.5 cm). [vi], 32 pp. Later blind marbled wrappers.= This is the first exclusively entomological paper by Linnaeus according to his system of binominal nomenclature (the 1758 Pandora insectorum contains nude names only). Written by Linnaeus as a thesis, it was defended by Boas Johansson (1742-1809), who is sometimes erroneously listed as the author. The work contains the first valid descriptions of 102 (not 100) species of insects - mainly beetles and butterflies, and mainly from Surinam, Java, India, and Pennsylvania. This is the original edition (Soulsby, 2251), not the later reprint that formed part 121 of volume VI of the Amoenitas Academicae with a different pagination (Soulsby, 1280, 2252). Although both bear the same date, the "Amoenitas" version, which lacks the word "rariorum" in the title, was printed in September, not in June. Among the butterfly species described is one that is not real but a different species falsely ornamented with red ink dots. Most species names introduced here, however, are still in use today. A little-known fact is that the work includes several new crustaceans, mainly crabs, then still regarded as "insects". Title page slightly trimmed, otherwise a very good, clean copy. Rare.

Der wichtigste Pandektenkommentar im süddeutschen Raum im Zeitalter des usus modernus pandectarum! - Zum Kreis der wichtigsten Kommentare des "usus modernus pandectarum" zählt ohne Zweifel das Collegium von Lauterbach (1618-1678), des führenden Juristen des württembergischen Rechtskreises. Lauterbach war der bedeutendste Rechtslehrer an der Universität Tübingen im Zeitalter des Jus Commune und steht durchaus mit den großen Juristen wie Mevius und Carpzov auf einer Stufe. Er nahm mit seinen Werken grossen Einfluss auf die Rechtsentwicklung im süddeutschen Raum. Die Überarbeitung des gesamten Zivilrechts, insbesondere die Harmonisierung von einheimischem und römischem Recht, aber auch der Rechtstheorie und der Rechtspraxis war eine der großen Aufgaben dieser Zeit. In seinen Collegien nahm Lauterbach diese juristische Arbeit in Angriff. In den Jahren 1662 bis 1676 erörterte Lauterbach schwerpunktmäßig auf der Grundlage der Pandekten den Zivilrechtsstoff. Diese Erörterungen in der Legalordnung der Pandekten bildeten im Zusammenhang ein Compendium der Pandekten, das die Zivilrechtslehre dieser Zeit prägnant und punktgenau darstellt. Lauterbach kam bis zum 17. Buch und nach seinem Tode vollendete sein Tübinger Kollege Burkhard Bardilius (1629-1692) das Opus bis zum 50. Buch. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

(bookplate), Christie's sale 5442, April 23, 2008. --- Riccardi I/1, 180; Honeyman Coll. 428; Roller-G. I, 146; de Backer-S. I, 1841; see PMM 203 and Norman 277 for 1st edition. - Third (first Venetian) edition of Boscovich's fundamental work in the history of scientific thought, a precursor of modern atomic theory by the eminent Dalmatian Jesuit mathematician and polymath. "Boskovich's theory influenced the position of nineteenth-century field physics with regard to the relations between space and matter; it was employed by Faraday and Kelvin, and J. J. Thomson used its curve of forces to introduce the earliest concepts of atomic physics" (Norman). The bookplate of Charles Atwood Kofoid (1865-1947) is interesting; there are planktonic organisms about to be hauled into the plankton net being towed by the research vessel. Kofoid was born in Illinois in 1865, did his undergraduate work at Oberlin College, and received his PhD in Zoology from Harvard in 1894. He was at the University of Michigan for a year, and for five and a half years, he was Superintendent of the Illinois Biological Station, where he wrote numerous articles and books, including the massive The Plankton of the Illinois River 1894-1899. He next went to the University of California at Berkeley where he was a leading member of the faculty for twenty-five years. Look at the upper left end of the bookplate; the campanile (bell tower) seen outside the window is the one on the Berkeley campus of the University of California. Kofoid was one of the leading investigators in protozoology and limnology, and was the developer of what came to be known as the Kofoid Bucket, a device used in the collection of planktonic samples. The associates of Professor Kofoid are said to have been always impressed by the succession of arrivals of packages of books, which did not cease until his death in 1947. A few months before his death, he gave the University more than 40,000 volumes, including many rare works in the history of science and medicine..

Dedica dell’autore al nobile fra Antonio Montecuccoli. “Contenente le leggi fondamentali: i precetti più purgati: le migliori aperture: le più essenziali terminazioni del Giuoco: una scelta Centuria di elegantissimi partiti: in somma tutto il migliore degli antichi e moderni Autori, e Giuocatori riformato, ricorretto, ed appianato conforme l’esigenza, e arricchito (oltre un Indice copioso ed esatto) di moltissimi avvertimenti, e dichiarazioni valevoli ad istruir pienamente chiunque desideri d’apprendere con fondamento le regole, gli artifizi, e le finezze di questo nobil Giuoco”. "Prima ed unica edizione" del trattato del Lolli, giocatore e teorico degli scacchi (Nonantola 1698-1769). La sua importante opera integra e continua quella dell’Anonimo Modenese (Ercole del Rio) "Sopra il Giuoco degli Scacchi" (1750), arricchendola di note e completandola con un centinaio di finali di cui molti originali. Vi sono comprese: una lettera di Del Rio, inviata ad un amico in cui espone alcuni precetti generali, considerata a lungo “"carta fondamentale" per il gioco degli scacchi in Italia; una seconda lettera di Del Rio, in cui venne recensito il libro di “"Philidor"”; alcuni commenti teorici delle partite; cento partiti pratici (finali), di cui 29 di Del Rio, e 11 dello stesso Lolli; tre partiti di sottilità (problemi) del Lolli. Il Del Rio fu uno degli avversari preferiti dal Lolli, e otto posizioni di partite giocate fra i due grandi modenesi nel 1755,1756 e 1757, vennero pubblicate nella presente edizione. Nell’Ottocento l’opera del Lolli godette di grande fortuna. Cfr. Gay “Bibl. du jeu des échecs", p. 194: “Cet ouvrage, enrichi de notes importantes sur le jeu des échecs selon la méthode italienne, comprend à la fin du volume une centaine de bonnes positions critiques de lui et de différents autres” - Choix de Olschki,II,2600. Fresco esemplare con barbe, ben conservato, in astuccio moderno.

        The Holy Bible, Containing the Old Testament and the New: Translated out of the Original Tongues and With the former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised

      Birmingham: John Baskerville, Printer to the University, 1763. The third variant of the Subscriber's list, with the most names, ending with that of the Hon. Charles York, Esq, Attorney General. [1146] pp. Folio. Bound in full dark blue straight-grained morocco, covers tooled in gilt with wide Greek key and drawer handle border with floral cornerpieces, narrow gilt filet-bordered rectangles tooled all over with drawer handle and sunburst tools and semé off small dots, with central gilt-stamped L with crown, spine with six double raised bands, titled in one compartment, stamped with owner's name ("Frederic Powys") in another, and the rest richly gilt, a.e.g., pink endsheets, by Staggemeier and Welcher, with their circular pink paper label on front pastedown. Front joint and headcap with conservation repairs of the highest quality, light foxing to text. The third variant of the Subscriber's list, with the most names, ending with that of the Hon. Charles York, Esq, Attorney General. [1146] pp. Folio. Baskerville's Masterpiece, in Staggemeier & Welcher Binding. The 1763 edition of Baskerville's Bible has always been recognised as his masterpiece and is one of the high-points in the history of printing in Britain. This beautiful and monumental binding can be closely dated because Thomas Powys, formerly MP for Northamptonshire, was created Baron Lilford in 1797, and Staggemeier & Welcher are recorded in partnership on Villiers Street as of 1799. By 1810, Welcher was in business alone at that address. The Hon and Rev. Frederic Powys, whose name appears on the spine, was the third son of the first Lord Lilford; he married in 1807. Whether the binding was commissioned for his taking holy orders or on the occasion of his marriage can only be conjectured. A landmark of printing, in a splendid binding. Nixon, p. 184; Gaskell, Bibliography of John Baskerville, 26; Ramsden p. 135. Provenance: Frederic Powys (his name tooled in gilt to spine, Lilford Library booklabel)
