        Plato Redivivus or a Dialogue Concerning Government Wherein, By...

      1763. A Classic Text on English Republicanism in an Edition by Thomas Hollis Neville, Henry [1620-1694]. [Hollis, Thomas (1720-1774), Editor]. Plato Redivivus or a Dialogue Concerning Government Wherein, By Observations Drawn from Other Kingdoms and States, Both Ancient and Modern, An Endeavour is Used to Discover the Present Politic Distemper of Our Own; With the Causes and Remedies. London: Printed for A. Millar, 1763. [ii], 8, [1] iv-x, 284 pp. Complete. Small woodcut image of Phrygian cap at foot of p. 8. (This was a classic Hollis device.) 12mo. (6-1/4" x 4"). Contemporary speckled calf with recent rebacking, raised bands, blind ornaments and lettering piece to spine, gilt tooling to board edges, hinges mended. Small scuff to front board, moderate rubbing to board edges, corners bumped and somewhat worn, small recent owner bookplate to front pastedown. Light toning to text, somewhat heavier in places, light foxing to a few leaves. Recent owner inscription to front free endpaper, interior otherwise clean. A handsome copy. $950. * Fourth (stated) edition, actually the sixth and final edition, and the only edition by Hollis. Better known as a satirist and author of fictional works, Neville was also active as a politician and political theorist. First published in 1681, Plato Redivivus is cast in the form of a dialogue. It argues that the growing number of property owners in England will require a wider distribution of political power. It was recognized almost immediately as an important statement of English Republicanism. The edition by Thomas Hollis helped to renew this work's popularity during the mid-eighteenth century. A wealthy Whig author and political philosopher, Hollis produced handsome and affordable editions of works by Locke, Milton, Sidney and other seventeenth-century proponents of English liberty, which he distributed to institutions in the British Isles, Europe and the American colonies. OCLC locates 5 copies of this edition in North America (Boston Public Library, Columbia, Yale, Princeton, University of Chicago). English Short-Title Catalogue T76175.

This finely printed folio edition was edited and annotated by Rev. William Rider. “The Christian Family’s Bible (17637), in three large folio volumes, contained lengthy comments by the editor.

The design is traditional, but the quality of material and workmanship is so high, and the conventions are so delicately modified and consistently applied that the result is extremely impressive"" (Cambridge History of the Bible, 464).

Contemporary glazed plain paper boards, red sprinkled edges (binding soiled and a little worn, corners bumped). Text only little age-toned, very minor spotting in places. Provenance: undeciphered inscriptions on endpapers; 19th-century armorial bookplate "Bibliotheca SeckendorWana" to front pastedown. A good fresh and unmarked copy. ----Euler Archive 149A. First edition in German and the only separate edition, a translation of Réflexions sur l'éspace et le tems, Mémoires de l'académie des sciences de Berlin 4 (1750), p.324-33. "Euler outlays his views on the relation between Metaphysics and Mechanics. The truths of mechanics are "so indubitably constant" that they must be founded in the natures of bodies. Metaphysics is the study of the nature of bodies, therefore the laws of Mechanics constrain Metaphysical theories. In fact, any Metaphysical idea or conclusion corresponding to a Mechanical one must agree in all its implications with Mechanics. This applies in particular to space and time. Real, absolute, space and time are assumed by the laws of Mechanics. Therefore, Metaphysical arguments for the unreality of space and time must be unfounded and 'hide some parlogism'." (The Euler Archive: http://www.math.dartmouth.edu/~euler/). (R. Gaskell, Books from the Library of Walter Pagel, Pt. II, 53). This edition is exceedingly rare. OCLC/Worldcat lists no copies in US libraries and only two copies outside Germany (Swiss libraries). Very Good.

        A Description of Ventilators: whereby Great Quantities of Fresh Air May with Ease be Conveyed into Mines, Goals [sic.], Hospitals, Work-Houses and Ships, In Exchange for their Noxious Air.

      London: W. Innys, R. Manby, T. Woodward, 1763. Two volumes, octavo, five folding plates, contemporary speckled calf. First edition: Hales' ventilators became known as "ship's lungs", and were so appreciated by eighteenth-century sailors, and contributed so significantly to an improvement in seaboard conditions, that captains reported the crews needed little encouragement to work the machines.After a leisurely twelve years in residence at Cambridge, Hales (1677-1761) took up a parish and became heavily involved in local affairs, but this did not preclude him from a long and productive scientific career. His continuing fame was assured with these two books, which effectively invented artificial ventilation. Designed to draw fresh air into confined spaces, his machines were installed in His Majesty's ships, merchant vessels, slave ships, in hospitals, even at the court of King's Bench, the Drury Lane Theatre and Newgate Prison. As a result, there was a marked improvement in mortality rates, even among French prisoners-of-war held in English gaols, which led Hales to quip that he hoped none would accuse him of corresponding with the enemy.He was a pioneer in public health, a role that he apparently considered a vocation: his friend Gilbert White commented that Hales could barely be restrained from offering unsolicited advice to friends and acquaintances, his wide-ranging mind capable of discoursing endlessly on the perils of encrusted tea-kettles or on the best methods of maintaining the keels of boats to passing ferrymen. White records one particularly endearing act of benevolence, commenting that he once spotted Hales busy painting white the 'tops of the foot-path posts, that his neighbours might not be injured by running against them in the dark' (DNB). Hales was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1718. Some very light browning and two plates bound in upside down; a good set in contemporary speckled calf, a little chipped at spine, hinges starting but firm.

L'Angelo Malavolti, italiano, pubblicò quest'opera per la famiglia reale d'Inghilterra..Quanto alla scienza schermistica l'autore, benché italiano, si è attenuto, in parte, ai principii della Scuola francese, che aveva (pare con amore) studiato lungamente a Parigi" (Gelli). L'autore posò personalmente per molte delle tavole, insieme ad alcuni dei suoi nobili allievi, tra cui Lord Penbroke. Ottimo esemplare. ''..in his celebrated L'ècole des armes, published in 1763, he has left us a record of his method of instruction.. Angelo begins the tratise by advising his reader how to select a sword. Then he distinguishes between the weak and the strong of the blade.. In retrospect Angelo's method of instruction was a blend of the Italian and French schools, and as such was a forerunner of Alberto Marchionni's mixed school'' (Gaugler, pp. 61-69).

He wrote more than 80 plays, which more famous are : Le Tour de Carnaval, Les Acteurs déplacés, Les Fêtes sincères, Le Fleuve Scamandre, Zéphir et Fleurette (Firmin Didot Frères, Nouvelle biographie générale, 39, 125).

The first part of the volume is a refutation of the theory that Hell is located in the sun itself. The author, who believed his true location was underground, develops throughout the work of many scientific arguments relating to astronomy, with the calculation of the number of the damned can be contained in a sphere like the sun , volcanoes, etc..

        Traité de paix entre Descartes et Newton, précédé des vies littéraires de ces deux chefs de la physique moderne.

      Avignon, Veuve Girard, 1763. ____ Première édition. Aimé-Henri Paulian (1722-1802) père jésuite, enseignait la physique à Avignon. Le premier tome expose les travaux de Descartes, le deuxième tome, ceux de Newton et le dernier, son propre système "newto-cartésien", où il cherche à concilier les deux physiques. Paulian s'accorde entièrement avec Newton pour "la physique céleste, la lumière & les couleurs". Et il se rapproche de Descartes pour ce qui regarde "la dureté, l'élasticité, les fermentations, les tuyaux capillaires". Paulian a publié un "Dictionnaire de physique", qui a été très populaire et a connu plusieurs éditions. Ce "Traité de paix entre Descartes et Newton", qui n'a pas connu la même audience, est rare aujourd'hui. Petits accrocs aux coiffes, coins usés, sinon bel exemplaire. *****. 3 volumes in-12.
