      London: Printed for J. Nourse, Bookseller in Ordinary to his Majesty, 1763. First Edition. Full Leather. Very Good +.

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.

        SEGUNDA DECLARACION DEL THENIENTE DE FRAGATA DON JUAN VALCARCEL, MAYOR QUE SUE DE LA ESQUADRA, QUE SE HALLO EN LA DEFENSA, Y RENDICION DE LA PLAZA DE LA HABANA.[caption title].

      [Madrid]. . 1763 - pp.17-33. Quarto. Modern boards. Very good. In 1762 the British succeeded in seizing Havana from the Spanish. 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. Horn-Schenkling, 13591; Soulsby, 2251.

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..

        Manuscript Document Recording the Sale of a Slave in Colonial New York

      12 July 1763., [New York], - Single leaf (7 3/4 x 9), five lines of text, plus signatures, remnants of wax seal. Creases whee folded, some folds at edges, one small hole at fold, a bit of staining, normal aging and browning. The document records the sale of a Negro man, named Tom, by Solomon Smith to Joseph Smith for 100 pounds. Interestingly, payment was not expected until next Chrismas. Since the buyer and seller had the same last name, this was perhaps an 'all in the family' transaction. While the exact location is not given, the sale did take place in New York at the close of the French and Indian War. The document is signed by Zophar Scidmore, Isaac Schidmore, and Joseph Smith.The Scidmore family was from upstate New York, and Zophar Scidmore is listed in the family geology as a loyalist during the Revolution.

        OSSERVAZIONI TEORICO-PRATICHE SOPRA IL GIUOCO DEGLI SCACCHI Ossia il giuoco degli scacchi esposto nel suo miglior lume da Giambatista Lolli, Modenese. Opera novissima.

      Bologna, nella Stamp. di S. Tommaso d'Aquino, 1763. In-4 p. (mm. 307x210), cartoncino rustico coevo (risg. rifatti), tit. ms. al dorso (con abras.), pp.num. (4),632. 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.

Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem.

      [Florence: ca. 1763]. This handsome manuscript, prepared for presentation to Emperor Francis I (1708-65), Holy Roman Emperor and Grand Duke of Tuscany, is a beautifully written contemporary fair copy of the original holograph manuscript now in the Museo Galileo (formerly the Institute and Museum of the History of Science in Florence), compiled by Targioni-Tozzetti (1712-83), the great natural historian, librarian, director of Florence's botanical garden, and professor of botany. He was, after Spallanzani, the most active Italian naturalist of the 18th century. Emperor Francis I, the husband of Maria Theresa, was well-known for his interests in the natural sciences and for assisting his wife in running the complicated Austrian dominions. The collections of natural history specimens in the "Specola" next to the Pitti Palace trace their origins to earlier Medicis and to Georg Eberhard Rumpf, who had sold a large collection of 360 shells to Cosimo III de' Medici in 1682. The present catalogue was compiled at the instigation of Antoniotto Botta Adorno (1688-1774), prime minister of the Duchy of Tuscany. Thanks to Cosimo III's other natural history acquisitions, by the middle of the 18th century, Florence could boast one of the greatest collections of shells, botanical, and mineralogical samples in Europe. In 1775, all the collections were gathered into the "Specola" at the instigation of Grand Duke Peter Leopold which was the only scientific museum or "Wunderkammer" of its kind specifically created for the public to view. The present catalogue, following Targioni-Tozzetti's original manuscript, describes 3449 items, of which 2340 are zoological (mostly shells), 375 botanical, and 734 mineralogical and rock specimens. The preface to the catalogue describes the collections and their histories, their provenances including the Far East, etc. The main body of the catalogue is divided into three sections: zoological, botanical, and mineralogical samples. Each description is quite elaborate with full accounts of each specimen, references to other books, references to where other examples are illustrated, etc. Provenance: This manuscript entered the Apponyi family library in Oponice, Slovakia in the latter part of the 18th century and was sold in Prague in June 1939. ❧ Dance, Shell Collecting, an Illustrated History, pp. 56-57.

        Disegno della seconda Machina rappresentante una Vendemmia. Incendiata per comando di Sua Eccellenza il Sig. Don Lorenzo Colonna la sera del 19 Giugno 1763.

      1763 - Acquaforte e bulino, 1763. Da un soggetto di Paolo Posi. Bella prova, impressa su carta vergata coeva, con margini. Il foglio era applicato su tela ed in cornice; dopo un sapiente lavoro di restauro è stato riportato alla condizione originale. Piccoli strappetti ai margini bianchi, minimi difetti, per il resto in buone condizioni. Le macchine del fuoco per la festa della Chinea Chinea in senso letterale, era la mula bianca (o il cavallo ambiatore delle Asturie) che i Re di Spagna presentavano annualmente al papa in forma solenne per il pagamento del censo per il Regno di Napoli. Il cavallo, convenientemente ammaestrato, s'inginocchiava davanti al pontefice e gli offriva la somma di danaro contenuta in un vaso d'argento fissato alla sella. L'offerta era preceduta da una solenne cavalcata della durata di due ore e mezza, lungo un itinerario preciso. Per rendere più solenne la cerimonia, con decreto del 12 maggio 1691 di Carlo II, si obbligavano i "grandi" di Spagna a partecipare al solenne corteo, al quale seguivano per due sere spari di macchine pirotecniche accompagnati da esecuzioni musicali, balli e rinfreschi. La chinea, per la sua regolarità, non era soltanto la festa estiva per eccellenza, ma il migliore biglietto da visita della monarchia spagnola (poi di quella napoletana) nella città eterna, l'arma propagandistica più convincente per guadagnare un consenso universale e l'appoggio politico delle altre potenze. Le celebrazioni erano fastosissime, malgrado i problemi politici della nazione, ed il consueto ritardo nell'invio del danaro per il loro svolgimento. In occasione della festa, palazzo di Spagna e, successivamente, palazzo Colonna e palazzo Farnese, diventavano per due mesi all'anno l'atelier di inventori, pittori, disegnatori e architetti di macchine, nonché il momento di aggregazione di artificieri, fuocaroli, musicisti, fornitori e cuochi. Questi palazzi, inoltre, diventavano, per due giorni all'anno, sede dell'ambasciata straordinaria, luogo dal quale partiva la cavalcata e davanti al quale si innalzavano le « stupefacenti » macchine per i fuochi d'artificio, dove si disponevano le luminarie tenute accese le sere della vigilia e il giorno della festività dei santi Pietro e Paolo. Risale agli inizi del Settecento la consuetudine di allestire, il 28 e 29 giugno, due sontuose macchine in piazza santissimi Apostoli (più raramente in piazza Farnese), di cui conosciamo le caratteristiche grazie alle minuziose incisioni, accompagnate da esaurienti didascalie, che vennero stampate annualmente dal 1723. Monopolizzarono la costruzione e progettazione delle macchine di questo periodo Paolo Posi, architetto camerale della Repubblica di Venezia e di casa Colonna, in collaborazione con il suo allievo, l'architetto camerale Giuseppe Palazzi, e con l'incisore Giuseppe Vasi. Posi, ultimo epigono del barocco, celebrava Ferdinando negli apparati come appassionato archeologo, e come l'entusiasta monarca favorevole al trasporto in piazza di elementi popolari sulla platea d'un sontuoso edificio destinato al divertimento pubblico. Più che mai per tali apparati, ove l'incisore lavorò su disegni altrui, come d'altronde per spettacolari cortei o cavalcate cittadine, il Vasi è prezioso testimone ed interprete del suo tempo.

The offer was preceded by a solemn ride of two and a half hours, a long and precise itinerary. To make it even more solemn, as per Charles II d [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      [Florence: ca. 1763]. This handsome manuscript, prepared for presentation to Emperor Francis I (1708-65), Holy Roman Emperor and Grand Duke of Tuscany, is a beautifully written contemporary fair copy of the original holograph manuscript now in the Museo Galileo (formerly the Institute and Museum of the History of Science in Florence), compiled by Targioni-Tozzetti (1712-83), the great natural historian, librarian, director of Florence's botanical garden, and professor of botany. He was, after Spallanzani, the most active Italian naturalist of the 18th century. Emperor Francis I, the husband of Maria Theresa, was well-known for his interests in the natural sciences and for assisting his wife in running the complicated Austrian dominions. The collections of natural history specimens in the "Specola" next to the Pitti Palace trace their origins to earlier Medicis and to Georg Eberhard Rumpf, who had sold a large collection of 360 shells to Cosimo III de' Medici in 1682. The present catalogue was compiled at the instigation of Antoniotto Botta Adorno (1688-1774), prime minister of the Duchy of Tuscany. Thanks to Cosimo III's other natural history acquisitions, by the middle of the 18th century, Florence could boast one of the greatest collections of shells, botanical, and mineralogical samples in Europe. In 1775, all the collections were gathered into the "Specola" at the instigation of Grand Duke Peter Leopold which was the only scientific museum or "Wunderkammer" of its kind specifically created for the public to view. The present catalogue, following Targioni-Tozzetti's original manuscript, describes 3449 items, of which 2340 are zoological (mostly shells), 375 botanical, and 734 mineralogical and rock specimens. The preface to the catalogue describes the collections and their histories, their provenances including the Far East, etc. The main body of the catalogue is divided into three sections: zoological, botanical, and mineralogical samples. Each description is quite elaborate with full accounts of each specimen, references to other books, references to where other examples are illustrated, etc. Provenance: This manuscript entered the Apponyi family library in Oponice, Slovakia in the latter part of the 18th century and was sold in Prague in June 1939. ❧ Dance, Shell Collecting, an Illustrated History, pp. 56-57.

      IJSGEZICHT ROTTERDAM?Oostelijk gezicht der Stad Rotterdam en der Maaze, met IJsvermaak op deeze Rivier, 24 Januari 1763?. Ets vervaardigd door Paulus Constantijn la Fargue, uitgegeven in 1763 door P.G. van Balen, te ?s Gravenhage. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. ca. 45 x 70 cm.Als het ijs sterk genoeg was dan vertoonden zich ook deftige luyden aan het volk. Arrensleden, koetsen en speelwagens kwamen onder het belgerinkel van de dampende paarden over de dikke ijskorst aangegleden en ?gereden. Er wordt hier een historisch moment weergegeven: de latere stadhouder Willem V (1748-1806) rijdt in zijn door zes paarden getrokken koets met uitgebreid gevolg over de bevroren rivier. Het is een met alle details weergegeven drukte een formidabele prent en topografisch interessant door het gezicht op de stad vanaf het ijs.We zien Rotterdam: het Oude Hoofd met Oude Hoofdpoort en achterzijde van de huizen aan het Haringvliet; aan het einde daarvan zijn de Admiraliteitswerf aan het Boerengat en de molens op het Bosland en langs de Oostzeedijk zichtbaar.Paulus Constantijn la Fargue (1732?1782) stamt uit een Nederlands geslacht van kunstenaars, van vijf kinderen was hij de meest begaafde. Paulus Constantijn heeft zowel geschilderd en getekend, als ge?tst. In de eerste plaats waren dat nauwkeurig uitgewerkte stads? en dorpsgezichten, maar daarnaast ook actuele gebeurtenissen, landschappen, portretten, en genretaferelen.Prijs: ?5.500,- (incl. lijst).
