ENGLISH DESCRIPTION: Third English edition of this very rare account to South America. Hardly browned, only marginal damages to paper, altogether very nice copy in great modern calf binding, blind tooled and with fragments of original spine labels mounted. 2 Bände. The third edition.. *** Dritte englischsprachige Ausgabe des bahnbrechenden Berichts über die Expedition zur Erforschung von Erdumfang und -krümmung in Südamerika. Verfasst vom spanischen Mathematiker Jorge Juan de Santacilia (1712-1774) und dem Admiral und Statistiker Antonio de Ulloa (1716-1795) gehört das im 1748 zuerst in spanischer Sprache erschienene Werk (erste englische Ausgabe 1758) zu den am besten und weitestgehend wissenschaftlich zuverlässig dokumentierten Forschungsberichten des 18. Jahrhunderts."This voyage arose out of the desire of the French Government (through the Academy of Sciences at Paris) to send certain members of the Academy of Sciences to measure a degree of longitude in the equinoctial countries of Peru. This request was not only accorded in the most courteous manner, but the King of Spain conceived the idea of sharing the honor of a scheme devoted to the advancement of knowledge, and sent two of the most scientific officers of the Spanish navy to accompany the expedition. This party carried on a series of operations of unexampled difficulty and encountered hardships and sufferings which demanded the strength of the strongest constitutions and the energy of minds stimulated by a love of science. Much information was collected and published, which has been reproduced in other works on South America" (Cox). "Leur mission etait de determiner la figure et la grandeur de la Terre. Ils choisirent le pays de Quito, situe sous la ligne equinoxiale, pour le theatre de leurs observations. Ils debarquerent en 1736, et commencerent a mesurer les degres terrestres pres de l'equateur" (Hoefer). Die feingestochenen Tafeln zeigen Karten, Pläne und Einwohner von Porto Bello, City of Quito, Cartagena de los Indios, Lima, Callao etc., eine Tafeln mit einem atemberaubendem Vulkanausbruch, dem Transport eines Pferdes in einer Seilbahn über einen reißenden Fluss, idyllische Eingeborenenhütten und Kolonialarchitektur, Landschaftsansichten, Tierdarstellungen (Lamas), Instrumente zur Bearbeitung der Erde, von Eisen etc., Schiffe und vieles mehr. Die Karten sind sehr detailreich und fein gestochen. Nur leicht gebräunt, kaum fleckig, wenige unwesentliche Papierläsuren, insgesamt schönes Exemplar in sehr schönen, stilvollen Einbänden eines wahrhaften Meisterbuchbinders. Aus der Bibliothek von "Samuel Eliot Morison" mit dessen Exlibris.

        Carte Generale des Decouvertes (NORTH AMERICA, SIBERIA, RUSSIA)

      1772 - Diderot made this map illustrating important discoveries and voyages from Spain and Russia to western North America in 1772. The remarkably well maintained, copper plate engraved map still has crisp, even, hand coloring as issued distinguishing major geographical/political realms. An inset shows islands in the Mer de Tartarie. The discrepancies between today's knowledge of the North American coast and how it was mapped in the 1700's makes this beautiful and rare map a significant historical document.

        Poemetti filosofici.

      Modena: Eredi di Bartolomeo Soliani, 1772. - Giovanni Battista Vicini (1709-1782), poet and translator, was called by Baretti "uno dei magni poetastri d'Italia." He produced several collections of poems, both sacred and secular. He worked at the Ducal court in Modena and dedicated this work to Ipolito Giuliano Bellincini-Bagnesi, chamberlain to Duke Francesco III. The title indicates that the poems contained here are of a scientific nature. One of the longer poems is on the botany and use of trees, entitled "La favela, ed il canto degli arbori et dei fiori," which is both on the subjects of agriculture and natural history. Another poem, "I colori" deals with Newton's color theory, in particular his diffraction of sunlight with a prism. Octavo. 91, [3] pp. Wood-engraved head- and tail-pieces Contemporary speckled sheep over speckled boards, gilt flat spine with reddish-brown paste-paper lettering piece. A few wormholes, front cover a little rubbed. Occasional light foxing, but overall a very good, clean copy. With early twentieth-century stamp Fratelli Campori on front free endpaper. First edition.

A splendid work, beautifully coloured. In 1749-1776, the works of Edwards 'A natural history of uncommon birds' and 'Gleanings of natural history' and Catesby 'Natural history of Carolina, Florida, and the Bahama Islands' were translated into German and combined into one work under the title 'Sammlung verschiedener ausländischer und seltener Vögel'. Catesby's work is considered 'the most famous colorplate book of American plant and animal life' (Hunt)./The plates of Edwards and Catesby were re-engraved by Seligmann, further embellished by the addition of figures of plants not present in the originals. The present work is a translation of the German edition into Dutch by Houttuyn with Seligmann's plates. The Dutch edition was published by the famous Dutch publisher Sepp, a company which exercised the utmost care in producing colour-plate books of outstanding quality. The colouring of the Dutch edition seems to be more delicate than the other editions. An unusual clean and fine set of this rare ornithological classic, of which according to the list in volume I, only 90 copies were subscribed. The Dutch edition is the most complete edition having 473 plates. The German edition has 447 plates and the French edition 422 plates./ /Fine Bird Books, pp. 73-74; Landwehr 180; Nissen IVB, 857 & ZBI, 845; Zimmer I, 200.

Franz Sondheimer - - "Boyle was a firm believer in the particulate nature of matter, and developed his own corpuscular philosophy. Matter to him consisted of particles or atoms of various shapes and sizes arranging themselves into groups which constituted chemical substances; (...)It is a theory much closer to that of modern physical chemistry with its molecules, atoms and kinetic theories, in which comparatively little attention is paid to the elementical character of the substance concerned. The imortance of Boyle's work ('s) must be sought in his combination of chemistry with physics. His corpuscular theory, and Newton's modification of it, gradually led chemists towards an atomic view of matter, though this was only finally established by Dalton."
