        The History of Astronomy, with its application to Geography, History and Chronology; occasionally exemplified by the Globes

      J. Lister for J. Newbery, London 1767 - Costard, George (1710-82). The history of astronomy, with its application to geography, history, and chronology; occasionally exemplified by the globes. 4to. viii, [2, errata], ix-xvi, 308pp. Engraved plate (printed on both sides); woodcut text diagrams. Cancel slips pasted over diagrams on pp. 222 and 223. London: James Lister for J. Newbery, 1767. 260 x 207 mm. Calf ca. 1767, rebacked, light rubbing. Occasional foxing but very good. First Edition. Costard, the vicar of Twickenham, appears to have been the first English historian of astronomy, publishing books on the subject in 1746 and 1748 (A Letter to Martin Folkes, Esq., President of the Royal Society, Concerning the Rise and Progress of Astronomy Amongst the Ancients and A Further Account of the Rise and Progress of Astronomy Amongst the Ancients, in Three Letters to Martin Folkes . . .), as well as the present work. Costard’s knowledge of Hebrew, Arabic, Latin, Greek and other ancient languages gave him "unparalleled access to the astronomical literature of classical and early modern eras" (Oxford Dictionary of National Biography). He concluded that the ancient Greeks were the true founders of astronomy, having applied geometry to the study of the stars; the Egyptians and Babylonians, by contrast, were mere observers.

        DE RE MILITARI LIBRI QUINQUE cum selectis notis Godeschalci Stewechii, et Petri Scriverii, nec non ad Codicum Manuscriptorum fidem notis perpetuis criticis emendati, addita versione gallica, cura M Nicolai Schwebelii

      Norimbergae, apud Gabrielem Nicolaum Raspe, 1767.. 1767, Latin text followed by French translation, edited by Nicolai Schwebelii. 4to, approximately 255 x 195 mm, 10 x 7¾ inches, in 2 parts with separate register and pagination, the second part, with its own title page, containing the French translation (by C. G. Bourdon de Sigrais). Engraved frontispiece to Latin book, engraved vignette to each title page, engraved pictorial headpiece to each of the 5 Latin books, 2 folding plates, pages: (28), 176, (12) - indexes and errata; xviii, 90, at the end of the preliminary pages before the first page of the Latin text is an unsigned leaf with the Elenchus or contents of the five books which is sometimes found erroneously at the end of the Latin book, obviously an afterthought missing from some copies. Otherwise our copy collates exactly to a copy in ICCU. A digitised copy on the European Cultural Heritage Online site has the Elenchus bound in the middle of the index despite a leaf printed in German directing the binder to place it before page 1. Bound in modern quarter morocco over marbled sides, all edges red, new marbled endpapers. Occasional light foxing, second title page age-browned, some pale age-browning and light foxing throughout, small pale damp stain to a few upper margins, name of Dr Georg Wolfgang Augustin Fikenscher with date of 1797 on title page, in old ink, a German academic from Bayreuth, binding tight and firm. A very good copy. Vegetius a Roman writer about whom very little is known wrote his classic work originally called Epitoma Rei Militaris in the fifth century. The material, on military matters, is chiefly borrowed from earlier authorities and Vegetius is the only extant source for much that his work contains. It was first published in Utrecht in 1475 and was frequently reprinted and translated into modern languages. The work is divided into 5 books: 1. On the levying and training of recruits; 2. On the legion, its organisation, rank of officers and men, and their arms; 3. On tactics, the last chapter of this book consisting of thirty-two maxims of war; 4. On fortification and the attack and defence of places; on machines of war; 5. On the navy. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

        Della ricerca della verità. Prima edizione italiana con l'aggiunta dell'elogio dell'autore di M. di Fontenelle.

      appresso Pietro Savioni 1767 In - 4° (cm. 25,6), legatura coeva in cartonato alla rustica con nervi passanti e titolo ms. al dorso; pp. CIV 303 [1b] in ottimo stato, fresche e marginose; frontespizio in rosso e nero con grande vignetta incisa in rame (Zuliani), capolettera e testate in silografia; sporadici segni e tratto d'inchiostro al frontespizio. Rarissima prima traduzione del capolavoro di Malebranche curata da Luigi Pallazzolo, lucido estimatore del pensiero occasionalista. Rimase interrotta al pur corposo volume primo - il solo pubblicato come testimoniano i cataloghi commerciali del Savioni di molto successivi - e l'unica fino alla pavese di Bizzoni (1818). «Uno dei maggiori libri del pensiero moderno» [Garin Eugenio. Introduzione a La ricerca della verità. Laterza 1983, p.IX], libro molto combattuto che lo stesso Malebranche aveva perfezionato maniacalmente nelle sue edizioni d'Oltralpe dal 1674 alla definitiva del 1712. Questa è la primissima pubblicazione del filosofo francese in un'Italia che non lo capiva e lo tacciava d'irreligione ed empietà, così come «nei secoli di barbarie i filosofi si accusavano di magia» [p.LVI]. Ottimo esemplare.

        A rare, coveted, twice-signed volume from the library of Thomas Jefferson, one of his most recommended for historical and legal reading

      Londres, 1767. 7" x 4". "Memoires de Maximilien de Bethune, Duc de Sully, Principal Ministre de Henri le Grand;... Nouvelle Edition... (Londres, 1767). Vol. 7, 12mo, vi, 483 pp., bound in contemporary French mottled calf gilt, morocco spine labels. Singed with his ownership initial, ""T"" beside the printed binder's signature mark (""I"") at the bottom of page 187 and again on page 427 where Jefferson adds an ""I"" to the signature mark ""T"" (Jefferson's typical style of ownership signature used in books from his library in which he substituted ""I"" for ""J""). Bound in contemporary calf boards with ribbed, titled spine. Bindings lightly worn, small loss to top of spine, occasional minor fox mark, some light tanning, overall, very good condition.Sowerby notes that Sully?s Memoires ?are usually included in Jefferson?s lists of recommended historical reading.? Sowerby further notes that the first set that Jefferson owned, the set that was part of the library he sold the to Library of Congress, was the 1778 edition, purchased from Frullé in September, 1788. The present volume was almost certainly purchased as a set by Jefferson to replace the volumes sold to the Library of Congress in 1815. This volume is from the set listed in the 1829 auction catalogue of Jefferson?s library, but it was apparently kept by Thomas Jefferson Randolph, his grandson.It is not surprising that Jefferson would recommend Sully?s memoirs as part of a course of historical reading, or that he would be sure to have a set at hand for himself?"the two men shared several common notions. Maximilien de Bethune, duc de Sully (1560-1641) served King Henry IV of France in several capacities, as an army officer, engineer, Superintendent of Finances, and as a confidential advisor. As did Jefferson, Sully strongly favored agriculture over industry as an economic base, and encouraged its expansion. He also encouraged stock raising and forbade the destruction of forests. In order to facilitate trade, Sully encouraged internal improvements, sponsoring canals, roads, and bridges, and he abolished export fees on grains and wine. The first portion of Sully?s memoirs were originally published in 1638, and the work was translated into several languages and reprinted often.Jefferson compiled three substantial libraries in his lifetime, but books from his collection are exceptionally scarce on the market. To find a set of books that Jefferson thought of so highly, and with whose author he was in such agreement, is rare indeed. (Sowerby, Catalogue of the Library of Thomas Jefferson, 199). Volumes from Jefferson's library infrequently appear on the market. We are aware of three that have appeared on the market in the past fifteen years, all signed in the same fashion, and have brought from $25,000 to over $40,000 at auction. Provenance: Thomas Jefferson; Thomas Jefferson Randolph; Sarah N. Randolph; William Randolph Hearst sold at auction; Hammer Galleries, Gimbel Bros. Feb 1941 p. 226 item 750, purchased by: Dr. Alice Watson 1941 by descent to an Heir of Dr. Watson. "

A few small stains throughout the 4 volumes, but overall a set in very good to fine condition. 4 volumes. ---- Second edition of this classic account of the Dominican Order in Portugal and its overseas empire during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. It includes many transcriptions of primary sources such as documents, decrees, and inscriptions. Frey Luis de Cácegas (1540-1610), chronicler of the Dominicans in Portugal, began to gather the material for this work. At the request of the Dominicans, Frei Luis de Sousa took up the work after the death of Cácegas; the first volume was published in 1623, and two more in 1662 and 1678. The fourth volume, by Lucas de Santa Catherina, was first printed in 1733. It is rare to find all four volumes of the first edition together. A third edition appeared in 1866.The chronicle begins with a life of St. Dominic (1170-1221). It includes a description of the establishment of dozens of Dominican monasteries and convents in Portugal, and details of the lives of hundreds of monks and nuns of the Order. In volume II, 10 chapters deal with Dominicans in Africa (Loanda, Congo, Ethiopia, Guiné, Ceuta, Tangiers). In volume III, 39 chapters are on India (Goa, Chaul, Cochin, Solor). In the final volume, 11 chapters deal with India and the Far East (Siam, Malaca, Solor, other parts of Indonesia, and particularly Timor), and 5 more with Africa (the Monomotapa and Ethiopia). Near the end, 3 chapters are on Irish monasteries established in Portugal.Edgar Prestage comments in the @Encyclopedia Britannica (11th ed., 1911), "The Chronicle has the defect of most monastic writings, they relate for the most part only the good, and exaggerate it without scruple, and they admit all sorts of prodigies, so long as these tend to increase devotion. Their order and arrangement, however, are admirable, and the lucid, polished style, purity of diction, and simple, vivid descriptions, entitle Frei Luís de Sousa to rank as a great prose-writer. His metaphors are well chosen, and he employs on appropriate occasions familiar terms and locutions, and makes full use of those charming diminutives in which the Portuguese language is rich. His prose is characterized by elegance, sweetness and strength, and is remarkably free from the affectations and false rhetoric that characterized the age" (XXV, 462).Frei Luis de Sousa (1555-1632) was born Manuel de Sousa Coutinho, a descendant of the second Conde de Marialva. When he was about to become a Knight of Malta he was captured by the Moors. While in Algiers he may have met Cervantes, who mentioned him in @Los Trabajos de Persiles y Sigismunda. Back in Portugal, he made a name as an unbending patriot when he burned down his own home in Almada rather than receive the Spanish governor of Portugal as a guest. Perhaps because of this forthright attitude, he is said to have gone to Panama to seek his fortune. By 1613 he was back in Portugal, where he and his wife both entered a convent. (Almeida Garrett wrote a romanticized version involving the return of the wife's long-lost husband.) Frei Luis was asked to continue Cácegas's work on the Dominican chronicle, "a new kind of chronicle," as he promised in the preface to volume I.

A very good copy. Vegetius a Roman writer about whom very little is known wrote his classic work originally called Epitoma Rei Militaris in the fifth century. The material, on military matters, is chiefly borrowed from earlier authorities and Vegetius is the only extant source for much that his work contains. It was first published in Utrecht in 1475 and was frequently reprinted and translated into modern languages. The work is divided into 5 books: 1. On the levying and training of recruits; 2. On the legion, its organisation, rank of officers and men, and their arms; 3. On tactics, the last chapter of this book consisting of thirty - two maxims of war; 4. On fortification and the attack and defence of places; on machines of war; 5. On the navy. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE, FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST. POSTAGE AT COST.

Harrison and Le Roy, for finding the Longitude at Sea, and of the Proofs made of their works...To which is prefixed, a Summary of the Marquis de Courtanvaut's Voyage, for the Trial of certain Instruments for finding the Longitude at Sea. Done from the French, by a Fellow of the Royal Society. 14, xii, 54pp. Large 4to. London: F. Newbery, 1768. First editions of the first two works and first edition in English of the third; very fine copies from the library of Matthew Boulton, with the modern bookplate. These are important works regarding the invention and perfection of the chronometer, which enabled navigators to determine their correct geographical position at all times. I. While latitude has been ascertainable by relatively simple means, measuring longitude presented considerable challenges. In 1714, the English government offered the enormous prize of 20,000 pounds to be awarded by the Board of Longitude to anyone who developed a reliable means of calculating longitude at sea. "One way of measuring longitude is to compare local solar time with the standard time at the prime meridian. Local time is easily ascertained by observing the sun but only a very accurate clock can register a standard time over long periods. The improvements in horology effected by Christian Huygens and others after him about the mid-seventeenth century promised success with this method. But the practical problems associated with temperature-compensation and so forth remained long intractable, although several rewards for an invention were offered. Finally, John Harrison, a clockmaker with several useful inventions to his credit...perfected a chronometer of the required degree of accuracy, showing a steady rate of gain or loss. Harrison's chronometer not only supplied navigators with a perfect instrument for observing the true geographical position at any moment during their voyage, but also laid the foundation for the compilation of exact charts of the deep seas and the coastal waters of the world...There has possibly been no advance of comparable importance in aids to navigation until the introduction of radar."-Printing & the Mind of Man 208-(describing Harrison's earlier An Account of the Proceedings: 1763). II. As part of the dispute between Harrison and the Board of Longitude, Maskelyne was called upon to test the accuracy of Harrison's marine chronometer. Maskelyne was known to favor the rival method of finding longitude by means of lunar tables and he therefore subjected Harrison's chronometer, which had already performed well on two West Indian voyages, to a series of extreme and unrealistic tests. The tests were intended to fully discredit the watch. The predictably disappointing results were published in the present pamphlet, along with Maskelyne's conclusion that "Mr Harrison's watch cannot be depended upon to keep the longitude within a degree in a West India voyage of six weeks...nevertheless...it is a useful and valuable invention." III. First edition in English of the Exposé succint des Travaux de MM. Harrison et Le Roy (1768). This is a very rare and important contribution to the famous and bitter quarrel involving Pierre Le Roy (1717-85), the most eminent horologist in France of the 18th century, Harrison, and Berthoud. Le Roy made important contributions to the chronometer; he "established the main principles of the modern chronometer, to wit, a detached escapement, temperature compensation in the balance, and an isochronous balance spring."-Catherine Cardinal, "Ferdinand Berthoud and Pierre Le Roy..." in The Quest for Longitude (Ed. by William J.H. Andrewes), 1996, p. 292. The present work was written by Le Roy, using his father's name for this edition, in answer to Harrison's Principles (see item I). Le Roy illustrates the originality and priority of his own work, dating from before 1754, in comparison with Harrison's. While recognizing the merit of Harrison's chronometer, he considered his own to be superior. The condescension expressed here by Le Roy provoked a series of violently critical responses, both in England and in France. Le Roy also provides an account of the trial of his Nos. 1 and 2 on the Aurore under the Marquis de Courtanvaux in 1767. This is an extremely rare book. Fine copies, attractively bound together, and preserved in a box. Loosely inserted is a page of manuscript notes in ink by a contemporary reader about Harrison's time-keeper. ❧ I. Horblit 42b. II.

The History of Tom Jones, a Foundling est sans conteste l'un des grands chefs-d'oeuvre de la littérature anglaise. Il consacre le genre picaresque anglais avec un mélange éclatant de divers genres, celui du roman de moeurs, celui du roman sentimental et celui d'une prose satirique typiquement anglaise que l'on rencontre chez Swift. Fielding avait auparavant donné Joseph Andrews, sorte de satire du roman sentimental à la mode, Pamela de Richardson, et Histoire de Jonathan Wild, et c'était déjà deux coups de maître, il signe avec Tom Jones une oeuvre multiple, profonde, bien que toujours dans la même veine que Joseph Andrews ; son influence sera grande en France, et inaltérable en Angleterre, jusque chez Thomas Hardy et George Elliot. Les échos de ce style si anglais trouveront de grands échos chez Dickens.

      Dublin: Printed for Sarah Cotter 8vo (19.5 cm, 7.6"). x, 412 pp., [10] ff.. 1767 Second Irish printing, following the Oxford first of 1762 and the Dublin first of 1763: one of the most authoritative and scholarly of such reports of the time, accompanied by examinations of treason, homicide, accessories, the writings of Lord Hale, etc. The trial mentioned in the title refers to that of those arrested for participation in the Jacobite rising of 1745, an attempt by "Bonnie Prince Charlie" (i.e., Charles Edward Stuart) to regain the British throne. (He had timed his effort for a moment when much of the British military was occupied on the continent by the War of the Austrian Succession.) Cotter was the daughter of Joseph Cotter and successor to his printing business. She was active from 1757 to 1767 and published/printed law, technical, and religious books, belles lettres, and a wide variety of other productions. Her press produced two variants of this edition; in the present example, the colon after "Dublin" in the imprint is above the n of "in," and the catchword on p. 406 is "manner." Binding: Contemporary limp suede with envelope flap, portion of original tie still present. Provenance: Front pastedown and free endpaper with early inked ownership inscriptions of Gryff[yth?] Price. Binding as above, rebacked with mottled sheep with gilt-stamped leather title-label; edges rubbed, flap leather cracking and refurbished with same leather used on spine as well as internally reinforced with marbled paper. Endpapers with offsetting to margins, inscriptions as above. Pages with a very few instances of faint foxing. => A nice copy, easily imaginable as an Irish lawyer's portable reading and reference.

RISM B2118 (the present copy only).Berteau, a French cellist, "was the founder of the French school of cello playing. Among his pupils were Tillière, Janson, Cupis and the elder Duport. In 1739 he played a concerto of his own composition with great success at the Concert Spirituel in Paris. La Borde praised him highly."Some doubts have been cast upon the authenticity of the few works [by Berteau] which survive, largely due to confusion over his date of death, thought by F.-J. Fétis, Eitner and others to be 1756. The later date given above is, however, confirmed by the register of St Pierre d’Angers and in an annotation by Abbé Roze to a manuscript of ‘Sonate del S[i]gnore Berteau 1759’ (Bibliothèque nationale, Paris) of which two pages, according to Roze, are autograph."
