        Storia naturale. Nuovamente ordinata e continuata per opera del C. di Lacepede.

      Livorno, Tipografia Vignozzi, 1829 - 1833. Edizione adorna di rami. Opera in 54 tomi, in 12esimo, per un totale di 1092 pagine num. e 54 incisioni in antip. colorate a mano (uccelli, pesci mammiferi e fiori), bross. edit. coeva con sobrie decorazioni ai piatti e al dorso. Esemplari in barbe, finemente acquerellati e in buona conservazione, nonostante diffuse, normali macchiette di foxing ad alcune pagine. Georges - Louis Leclerc, conte di Buffon, nacque a Montbard in Borgogna nel 1707 e mor? a Parigi nel 1788. Fu quindi contemporaneo di Linneo. Nel 1739 fu nominato intendente del Jardin du Royal di Parigi; a lui si deve la riorganizzazione di quell'istituto, chiamato poi Jardin des Plantes, e la fondazione del Mus?um d'Histoire Naturelle di Parigi. Sar? proprio presso il Jardin des Plantes che Lamarck svolger? le sue prime attivit?, ricevendo stima e ammirazione da Buffon. Buffon ? soprattutto famoso per la sua opera maggiore, l' "Histoire naturelle, g?n?rale et particuli?re" (Imprimerie Royale, 1749 - 1789). L'opera, che doveva comprendere tutti i regni della natura, comprende solo i minerali e una parte degli animali (quadrupedi e uccelli) e si compone di 36 voll. in 4to, cos? suddivisi: 15 volumi sui quadrupedi (dal 1749 al 1767); 9 volumi sugli uccelli (dal 1770 al 1783); 5 volumi sui minerali (dal 1783 al 1788; di cui l'ultimo contiene il "Trait? de l'aimant", ultima opera di Buffon); 7 volumi di "Supplementi", tra i quali si trovano le"?poques de la nature" (1778), una delle pi? belle opere dell'Autore. Compaiono anche una "Th?orie de la Terre" e i "Discours", sotto forma di introduzione. Buffon include nell'opera tutto il sapere dell'epoca nel campo delle scienze naturali, fecendo s? che essa conosca, fin da subito, un immenso successo. Nella "Histoire naturelle g?n?rale et particuli?re", L'Autore sottopone a minuziosa analisi descrittiva i vari aspetti del mondo naturale, rileva le somiglianze tra l'uomo e la scimmia e la possibilit? di una genealogia comune; l'attenzione che Buffon accorda all'anatomia interna lo pone tra gli iniziatori dell'anatomia comparativa. 1. Buffon, per la genialit? delle sue intuizioni , ? considerato il pi? importante precursore di Lamarck e Darwin. L'opera fu continuata, nello stesso formato, da Lac?p?de, che descrisse gli ovipari, i serpenti, i pesci, i cetacei (1786 - 1804). Tra i suoi collaboratori, occorre citare, per i quadrupedi, Louis Jean - Marie Daubenton, che si incaric? della parte delle descrizioni anatomiche.

        Aperçu historique sur l'origine et le développement des méthodes en géométrie, particulièrement celles qui se rapportent à la géométrie moderne [and] Mémoire de géométrie sur deux principes généraux de la science, la dualité et l'homographie.A Classic in the History of Geometry. Bruxelles: M. Hayez, 1837. First edition.

      "The <i>Apercu Historique</i> was inspired by the question posed by the Royal Academy of Brussels in 1829: a philosophical examination of the different methods in modern geometry, particularly the method of reciprocal polars. Chasles submitted a memoir on the principles of duality and homography. He argued that the principle of duality, like that of homography, is based on the general theory of transformations of figures, particularly transformations in which the cross ratio is preserved, of which the reciprocal polar transformation is an example. The work was crowned in 1830, and the Academy ordered it published. Chasles requested permission to expand the historical introduction and to add a series of mathematical and historical notes, giving the result of recent researches. His books and almost all of his many memoirs are elaborations of points originally discussed in these notes." (DSB). <br/><br/> In 'A History of Geometrical Methods' Coolidge writes: "The greatest contribution which Chasles made to projective geometry, and it certainly was great, was in the study of the cross ration, whether of collinear points or of concurrent lines, or yet of coaxel planes. We this in Notes IX and X of [his Apercu]. He discussed the six cross ratios of four elements of one of these forms, and this gives him a deeper insight into the meaning of an involution. In Note XV we find the theorem, which was later to play a vital role in the work of Steiner, that four points of a conic determine with any fifth point of that curve four lines having the same cross ration. ... Another fundamental idea developed by Chasles was homography, or the general linear transformation in the plane or in space. Here a point corresponds to a point, and points of a plane or line to points of a plane or line. Central projection and homology discussed by Poncelet are special cases of this. He added the invariance of cross ratios as part of his definition, not realizing that this invariance could be proved, ... I think we should give him credit for being the first to give a proper definition of these important transformations".. The two works published as volume XI of the 'Mémoires couronnés par l'académie royale des sciences et belles-lettres de Bruxelles'. 4to (278 x 210 mm), contemporary calf, some light fosing toi titel pages, otherwise fine, pp [4],572;573-851 [1]

        The HISTORY Of SCOTLAND, Translated from the Latin of George Buchanan; With NOTES And a Continuation to the Union in the Reign of Queen Anne. By James Aikman, Esq. In Four Volumes. [Vols V & VI: "And a Continuation to the Present Time. In Six Volumes."]

      Published by Blackie Fullarton & Co. and Archibald Fullarton & Co. Edinburgh.

An overall. VG, entirely original 6-volume set & quite uncommon thus.. BuchananÕs greatest literary achievement of his later years was his Rerum Scoticarum Historia, initially published in 1582, in which he related the history of Scotland from its origin till the death of the regent Lennox in 1571. .... the underlying object of the book is the inculcation of those principles of political and religious liberty of which Buchanan had been the consistent champion throughout his career. By the leading scholars of Europe it was adjudged to be a work of transcendent merit, and even in the eighteenth century it was seriously debated whether Caesar, Livy, or Sallust had been his model. In this History, which for fully two centuries kept its place as a standard authority, Buchanan had appealed both to scholars and protestant theologians... [Cambridge History of English & American Literature]. While the work was extremely popular, and remained in print almost continuously well into the 19th C., this was one of the more ambitious editions, extending the History until the 'present' day. . Illustrated with frontis in each volume & a hand-colored folding copperplate map of Scotland in Volume I.

        Plantae asiaticae rariores; or, descriptions and figures of a select number of unpublished east indian plants.

      London, Treuttel and Würtz, (1829-) 1830-32. 3 volumes. Folio (525 x 365mm). With one double-page map and 295 fine hand-coloured lithographed plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spines in 6 compartments. First edition. A fine copy, without any foxing, of one of the great botanical books. Only 254 copies of this magnificent work on Indian plants were published. The plates were lithographed by Gauci after drawings by native artists. Vishnupersaud, whom Blunt describes as the finest of the Asian botanical artists of the time, contributed to the work, as well as to Roxburgh's 'Plants of the Coast of Coromandel', to which this work is, in many ways, a supplement. Wallich was superintendent of the Calcutta Botanic Garden from 1815 to 1846. He 'collected extensively and made many duplicates; these were distributed from London (after 1826) under the auspices of the East India Company' (Stafleu). "The work celebrates some of the spectacular finds by Wallich and his collectors... It was the last of the ambitiously conceived, extravagantly produced Indian floras" (Desmond, The European discovery of the Indian Flora p. 90). Nissen 2099; Stafleu and Cowan 16.583; Great Flower Books p. 80.
