        Ville de Manathe ou Nouvelle-Yorc

      Jacques Nicolas Bellin Paris: Jacques Nicolas Bellin, 1764. unbound. very good(+). Map. Uncolored engraving. Image measures 21 7/8" x 34 7/8". Fantastic early map of New York City. Details the fortress and city walls, streets and lots. A numbered key corresponds to notable buildings such as the governor's house and the armory. Based on a manuscript map by J.B.L. Franquelin of 1693, created during the French and Indian War. The focus on military function and details evokes the threat of attack by the French on the English, and is thought to have been reported by a spy (possibly John Reaux). Bellin reproduced the map 70 years later, although it was an outdated depiction of the city. Newer sources were simply unavailable. See Augustyn and Cohen, 50. Small chip to lower right, very light staining to margins. Jacques Nicolas Bellin (1703-1772), was the official hydrographer to the French king and the first person to hold the title of "Ingénieur de la Marine of the Depot des cartes et plans de la Marine" (chief engineer of the French Hydrographical Office).

        Lectures on Quaternions: Containing a Systematic Statement of a New Mathematical Method.Dublin: Hodges & Smith, 1853. First edition.

      Presentation copy of "this important work [which] embodies the author's invention of quaternions, 'giving him the right to rank in originality and insight with Diophantus, Descartes, and La Grange' (R.E. Anderson [in Dictionary of National Biography])." (Sotheran I, 1764). Quaternions are a linear algebra of rotations in space of three dimensions, and were "the first non-commutative number system to be investigated in detail, and Hamilton's discovery that a consistent and useful system of algebra could be constructed without obedience to the commutative law of multiplication was comparable in importance to the invention of non-Euclidean geometry. Quaternions led to vector analysis, and were eventually superseded by the latter, which has become of the greatest importance in mathematical physics and was developed by G.F.B. Riemann and E.B. Christoffel into tensor analysis. This made possible the creation of the theory of relativity." (Printing and the Mind of Man). PMM 334; Norman 985; Honeyman 1601.. 8vo: 222 x 143 mm. Original plum blind-stamped cloth (faded, lightly worn). Provenance: Presentation inscription from the author on title: (recipients name cut away) "/ from the author./ Observatory, September 4th, 1862.". To Hamilton's title LL.D. he has added "Dub. and Camb.". Inscription to the half title: "To Captain Kidd / Complements of / The Askalon / Oct. 1862.". Pp. LXXII, 64, 736, (2:errata). Numerous text diagrams. Internally fine and clean throughout. In all a very fine copy of this "very scarce" (Sotheran, 1921) work

        Contes et Nouvelles en Vers. 2 Tomes.

      Amsterdam, 1764. 8vo. Two very nice cont. uniform red hcalfs; gilt backs w. gilt black leather title-labels. All edges uncut. Minor repairs to upper part of back of vol. one. In very good condition. Some of the text-leaves of the last section of the second volumes are evenly browned, and a few of the last leaves are professionally repaired, otherwise only occasional brownspotting to a few leaves. Nicely printed on good paper. Richly and beautifully illustrated w. the engr. portrait of La Fontaine, engr. frontisp. in both volumes, engr. title-vignettes, engr. preliminary vignette-leaves, 77 full-page engr. plates and 63 engr. text-vignettes. I.e. in all 80 engr. plates, 67 engr. vignettes and two woodcut vignettes (in the table of contents).. This rare and very beautiful Amsterdam edition is printed two years after the monumental first edition from Paris, which was commissioned by Ferniers Géneraux, and which is very scarce and sought after. This is the most beautiful and well-executed of the re-impressions (Paris, 1762 (-without vignettes), Amsterdam, 1764 and London, 1764). -"Celle d'Amsterdam, 1764, 2 vol. in-8. fig. copiées sur celles de l'édition de 1762, est assez belle..." (Brunet III:760). The illustrations of this edition are excellent and copied from the beautiful first edition; many of them are engraved and signed by C. Boily, and all are after Eisen. Most of the vignettes are after Choffard. The portrait of La Fontaine is engraved by Macret after Ficquet. "Cette imitation de l'édition des fermiers généraux est assez jolie. Le portrait de La Fontaine est tantôt gravé par Savaret, et tantôt par Macret, suivant les exemplaires." (Cohen, p. 310).The illustrations of this work are considered Eisen's main work, the book is considered one of the greatest works of rococo book-illustration, and it has greatly inspired later tradition in this field
