         THIRD PART OF KING HENRY VI. With the Death of the Duke of York.

      London for Jacob Tonson and E. Curll 1709 - Rare Large Paper Copy of the First Octavo Edition, First Scholarly Edition, First Eighteenth Century Edition and an extract from the First Rowe edition. With engraved decorations to the title and last leaf and with a large decorated initial at the beginning of Act1 Scene1. Large 8vo, bound into protective wraps, with tipped on title label to the upper cover. [79]pp. paginated within the Rowe text. A fine and well preserved copy. The text clean and sound. An excellent copy of this highly important printing, which represents a number of "firsts": the first octavo printing, the first illustrated edition, the first scholarly edition, the first eighteenth century edition, the first to introduce act and scene divisions where they had been lacking in the folio editions, the first manual edition, from the first collection to present a biography of the poet, the first to bear an editor’s name and from the first complete collection of the works available other than the said four folios. To quote Colin Franklin, who so eloquently discusses the eighteenth century editions in his book, SHAKESPEARE DOMESTICATED (1991), "This remains a very attractive reading edition, witness to Tonson's first intention in planning it. To that extent and for its innovations Jaggard the bibliographer's comment is true: 'In importance and interest this edition ranks second perhaps to the editio princeps.'"

         Miscellanea. Hoc est I. Dissertation de Barometris, & Thermometris, II. Machinae Arithmeticae, ejusque usus Decriptio, III. De Sectionibus Conicis Parallelorum in Horologiis Solaribus Tractatus.

      Venice, Aloysius Pavinus, 1709. 4to. Completely uncut in the original stitched blank boards. Some brownspotting. Untouched and unrestored in completely original condition. A magnificent copy. Engraved title-vignette. (8), 56 pp. + 9 folded engraved plates. ¶ The very rare first edition of Poleni's first published work, containing - among other things - his seminal treatise on his arithmetic machine, which constitutes the first constructed calculating machine with gears with a variable number of teeth (i.e. pin-wheel). "Poleni designed a machine organized around a new principle for the multiplying mechanism: the variable cogwheel. A large, wooden structure, Poleni's machine looked like a clock. He published in 1709 a detailed, illustrated description of the internal mechanism, the first detailed printed description of a mechanical calculating machine." (Matthew L. Jones, Reckoning with Matter, p. 130). The plates in the "Miscellanea" depict the calculator and constitute the only original presentation of it that still exists, as none of the two models that Poleni himself built (and mentioned in the preface to his work) have survived."Having heard and read of the machines of Pascal and Leibniz, Poleni designed a calculating machine based on the principle of the pinwheel to overcome the shortcomings of these earlier calculators. He built a hardwood model, intended as a gift for the emperor, but decided to destroy it when he learned that a Viennese mechanic named Brauer had anticipated him by presenting the Emperor with a somewhat simpler machine." (Tomash). This is the story that is most frequently repeated about the legendary Poleni-calculator. But this seems not to be a certain fact. It is possible that the machine(s) merely disappeared or were destroyed some other way. The story stems from Jean de Fouchy Pajil Grandjean, who, in the first biography of Poleni ("Eloge de Jean POLENI, Marquis du St. Empire", 1762), claims that "...having heard that Mr Brawn, a famous mechanic in Vienna, presented a similar machine to the Emperor, Poleni destroyed his machine and no more wanted to rebuild it." The same story is then repeated in the two subsequent Poleni-biographies (Cossali (1813) and Gennari (1839)). This however, is not corroborated by anything else we know about Poleni, and even though Fouchy specifically mentions the German mechanic, constructor and optician Anton Braun, who worked in Vienna for the court and who did in fact present his own calculating machine (which was based on the pin-wheels of Poleni and Leibniz) with great success to the Emperor, this only happened as late as in 1727 - 18 years after Poleni described his calculating machine in his first published work. It is most likely that Anton Braun had actually read Poleni's "Miscellanea" and then decided to use Poleni's ideas for a calculating machine in his own construction.According to Poleni himself, two wooden copies of his calculating machine were made. He states the following in the introductory notes to the chapter on the machine:"Having heard several times, either from the voice, or from the writings of scientists, which were made by the insight and the care of the most illustrious Pascal and Leibniz, two machines which are used for arithmetic multiplication, which I do not know the description of the mechanism, and I do not know if it was made manifest, I wanted and guess with thought and reflection to their construction, to build a new one that implement the same purpose... By a happy chance, I designed a machine with the use of which even a novice in the art of calculation, provided that knows the figures, can perform arithmetic operations with his own hand. So I am worried that it was made of wood, as I had planned and that, although initially built with poor precision, showed that this was achievable, rather than made. Therefore, I have recreated the machine from scratch, building it of the hardest wood, with all possible attention and the work done has not failed in vain."A description of Poleni's calculator appeared in 1727 in Leupold's "Theatrum arithmetico geometricum" and in 1804 in Johann Bischoff's "Versuch einer Geschichte der Rechenmaschine". Several replicas of the machine has been built in modern times (one still being in the Museo Nazionale della Scienza e della Tecnica, Milano). IBM was so intrigued by Poleni's calculating machine that they too tried to reconstruct it. IBM still has this replica that is used for display purposes. Poleni's first work, "Miscellanea" was essentially a sort of doctoral thesis to obtain a University appointment. It earned him Isaac Newton's (1642-1727) support to become a member of the Royal Society of London and the Chair of Astronomy and Meteorology at Padua University. Apart from the treatise on his calculating machine, the work includes dissertations on barometers, thermometers, and conical sections in sundials. Poleni's proposition of unedited variants of differential and integral calculus gained him Leibnitz's interest and support for his election as a member of the Academy of Sciences of Berlin, resulting in Poleni's accreditation in the European context. The Pinwheel calculator would later prove an extremely important invention that about 150 years after Poleni's original invention revolutionized trademanship and, more generally speaking, the history of mechanics and computing. Erwin Tomash: P: 100.

         Miscellanea. Hoc est I. dissertatio de barometris, & thermometris, II. Machinae aritmeticae, ejusque usus descriptio, III. De sectionibus conicis parallelorum in horologiis solaribus tractatus. -

      Venezia, Pavino, 1709. In-4 (215 x 153 mm.). Solida legatura coeva in pelle marrone; piccole mancanze alle cuffie. Con 9 tavole ripiegate incise in rame. (8), 56 pp.; fresco esemplare. Edizione originale della prima opera del Poleni con la quale ottenne, a soli 26 anni, la cattedra di astronomia e meteore all'università di Padova. La Miscellanea è una raccolta di studi su svariati argomenti scientifici, tra cui i barometri, i termometri, e la descrizione di una "Machina arithmetica" di sua invenzione. Si tratta della prima macchina calcolatrice inventata e realizzata in Italia. Poleni sapeva delle calcolatrici realizzate da Pascal e da Leibniz nel secolo precedente, ma non ne conosceva il funzionamento, per cui ne progettò una del tutto nuova con "un meccanismo completamente diverso da quello utilizzato da Leibniz (...) ma l'idea forse più innovativa di Poleni consiste nel fatto che la macchina era costruita in modo da separare nettamente la parte di impostazione dei dati da quella del calcolo vero e proprio, cosa che ritroveremo praticamente in tutte le macchine progettate dal XIX secolo" (D. Casalegno, Uomini e computer, Storia delle macchine che hanno cambiato il mondo, pp.33-34). DSB XI, p.65. Riccardi II, 290. First edition of Poleni's first publication. It contains a description of his arithmetical calculating machine, which proved to be the first calculating machine with gears with a variable number of teeth (so called pin-wheel), a great improvement on the proto-computers of Pascal and Leibniz. The Miscellanea also includes dissertations on barometers, thermometers, and conical sections in sundials. Thanks to this book Poleni was appointed at only 26 years of age professor of astronomy and meteorology at the University of Padua. With 9 engraved folding plates. A fresh copy in contemp. calf, head and foot of spine slightly worn.

         Reflexiones supra modernam causae sinensis constitutionem. Juxta exemplar in Italia impressum in latinum translatae.

      Ohne Ort (wohl Deutschland), 1709. - Kl-8°. Titel, 82 SS. Marmorierter Umschlag d. Zt. "Streit, Bibliotheca missionum: Chinesische Missionsliteratur, 1700-1950, Nr. 2576. Seltene erste lateinische Ausgabe der um 1704 erstmals auf italienisch veröffentlichten Schrift "Riflessioni sopra la causa della Cina" des Jesuiten und Mathematikers Tommaso Ceva (1648-1736). Behandelt wird die Kontroverse über Zugeständnisse an Chinesen, die zum Christentum übergetreten sind, aber einige alte Riten und Gewohnheiten beibehalten haben. Nach einiger Kritik an der liberalen und pragmatischen Haltung der jesuitischen Missionare entschloss sich Clemens XI mit dem Mandat von Nanking einzufordern, dass konfuzianische Gebräuche nur dann beibehalten werden dürften, wenn sie nicht im Widerspruch zur apostolilschen Lehre stünden. Der Legat Charles de Tournon, der im Jahr 1705 in China ankam, wurde vom Kaiser Kangxi in Peking zunächst freundlich empfangen, im Jahr 1707 dann aber inhaftiert, als er den römischen Wunsch auszuführen androhte, dass die chinesischen Katholiken exkomuniziert würden, wenn sie Praktiken beibehielten, die nun nach strengerer Betrachtung als Aberglauben bewertet wurden. Es ging dabei insbesondere um den Totenkult, das Wahrsagen, Aufstellen von Ahnentafeln und auch den Schmuck von Tempeln (Kirchen), die Ornamente enthielten, bei denen der Verdacht nahelag, es handele sich um Dämonen (eine gute Zusammenfassung gibt Rita Widmaier in der Einleitung zu: G. W. Leibniz. Briefe über China, Hamburg 2017, besonders Seiten 86-90). " "- Etwas gebräunt, wenig fleckig, die letzten fünf Blätter stärker gebräunt, berieben. Vorsatz mit altem Besitzvermerk eines Grafen Hohenstein. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Expériences de Physique, par M. Pierre Polinière, Docteur en Médecine.

      Good. A Paris, Chez : Jean de Laulne, dans la Place de Sorbonne, à lImage S. Jean. Claude Jombert, près des Augustins, à lImage Notre-Dame. Jacque Quillau, Imprimeur, rue Galande, aux Armes de lUniversité. 1709. Avec Approbation et Privilege. First edition. 17 cm. In-12 (8 +4); [iv ; 508 pages ; 10 plates]. Pasted onto the paste-down of the back cover is an additional engraving : dated or 1799. The instruction to the binder for the placement of the plates at the end of the text is on the verso of the last page of text. There is an advertisement for Polinières Les Elemens des Mathematiques (1704) on the verso of the title page. There is an eighteenth century signature on the title page: Courtin, Pretre, possibly that of Vincent-Joseph Courtin, prêtre du Diocèse de Cambrai, ca. 1773, and also a pencil annotation, "Paris, 1923." This copy is bound in mottled calf with a gilt-decorated spine and a recent red leather label. The front cover has been reattached. Despite the sloppy repairs to the spine, front cover and to the left edge of the title page, this copy is still a good working copy, now housed in a hard folding box by Deborah Evetts.Polinière devotes the first half of his book to experiments on the equilibrium of liquids and on the weight and elasticity of air. Next, he explores the directionality of magnetism and an experiment with magnetism for communication. At p. 303, the section on chemistry begins with a preface, followed by a systematic introduction, starting with acids and alkalines. Polinière follows chemistry with a section on anatomy, based on dissection, including circulation of the blood. The book concludes with a section on colors and light. An alphabetical index of the experiments concludes the text. In Mémoires de l'Académie des sciences, inscriptions et belles-lettres de Toulouse, 1902 : II, 1709, we learn Polinière was born in Coulence, Normandie (1671-1734) and that in 1722 he was asked to devise a curriculum for the young Louis XV, then 13 years old. There is a book plate of William Otho Potwin Morgan (1895 1934) and Christiana Drummond Councilman with the motto Morgan Pelagius on the pastedown of the front cover. Born in Chicago to a family of varnish manufacturers, William Otho Potwin Morgan was educated at St. Pauls School in New Hampshire, then entered Harvard in 1914, where he met Christina Drummond Councilman, the daughter of the Shattuck Professor of Pathological Anatomy at the Harvard Medical School. In 1917, he joined the United States Army and was shipped out to France (AEF 1st Div, 28th Infantry) in what became known as the Black Snake Division. Wounded and shell-shocked William Morgan returned to work at the Guaranty Bank in New York and with his wifes help and at her insistence, he began to write as a journalist, with an important article appearing in The New Republic about his experiences in the war and after with the Peace Commission, advocating for the implementation of President Wilsons Fourteen Points. James Carl Nelson wrote about Morgan in his Five Lieutenants the Heart Breaking Story of Five Harvard Men Who Led America to Victory in World War I. Christina Councilman escaped from her parents and went to New York, where she underwent a rigorous training to be a nurse, then working at Flower Hospital on East 68th Street in Manhattan, first in general patient care, then as a surgical nurse, with a view to joining her fiancé in France. Instead, she stayed in the United States and nursed victims of the flu, establishing herself as an independent woman. In 1921, she began taking classes at The Art Students League, as her marriage began to disintegrate, studying with Frank DuMond. She also met and had an affair with Chaim Weitzmann. Later through friends of her husbands she met Carl Jung and was called by him an anima woman or, an erotic muse. See: Translate this Darkness.

         A COLLECTION OF POEMS, VIZ. I. VENUS AND ADONIS. II. THE RAPE OF LUCRECE. III. THE PASSIONATE PILGRIM. IV. SONNETS TO SUNDRY NOTES OF MUSICK

      Bernard Lintot [1709], London - The first issue, having the four sub-titles dated 1630, 1632, 1599, and 1599 respectively, of the Second Edition of Shakespeare's Poems after the very scarce 1640 edition and the first to include VENUS AND ADONIS and THE RAPE OF LUCRECE. Small octavo (4" x 6-3/4") bound by Riviere and Son in a full gilt-decorated early 20th century brown morocco original Cosway binding with recessed panels on front and rear with inset oval watercolor miniatures on ivory by C.B. Currie under glass (signed on the front pastedown) with the Henry Sotheran imprint at the bottom of the verso of the front free endpaper; (4), 155 pages. Inserted is a page with the following printed information: "This is No. 893 of the Cosway Bindings invented by J. H. Stonehouse, with Miniatures on Ivory by Miss Currie." Both Stonehouse and Currie have SIGNED the page at the bottom. The book was beautifully rebacked in the past decade or so with a new spine that blends quite well with the covers. The Currie miniature at the front is after the Droeshout Portrait (1622) of Shakespeare used as the frontispiece to the First Folio. The rear miniature is a depiction of Venus and Adonis. Cosway bindings--named after the leading miniaturist of the Regency period, Richard Cosway (1742-1821)--were introduced in the early 1900s by John H.Stonehouse of Henry Sotheran & Company who conceived embedding miniature paintings in the covers of elaborately-tooled bindings. Harrison teamed with the Riviere bindery to create the bindings after his designs. Riviere hired Miss C. B. Currie to create the delicate miniature paintings on ivory inset into the covers and protected by thin panes of glass. Much imitated since, original Cosway bindings such as this, particularly when on a book of some importance, are highly desired. At some point the volume suffered some water damage which is now most visible on the endpapers and first and last few pages of the text as well as slight damage to the portrait of Shakespeare. Still a beautiful binding on a rare and important book in overall Very Good condition [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

      Londini: typis Benj. Motte, impensis Christoph. Bateman, 1709. 8vo (19.8 cm, 7.75"). 2 vols. in 1. I: ix, [5], 4, [2], 5–564 pp.; illus. II: 5, [1], 133, [1], 7 pp. First edition of an early bio-bibliography of the Estienne printing family, from perspectives both of Classical scholarship and typographic appreciation. In addition to writing about them, Maittaire (1668–1747) also collected early printed books, and upon his death an auction of them by Cock and Langford took over => 40 evenings to sell. This is Maittaire's first book, which Bigmore describes as a "very complete work." Biographies of "Henry I" and his sons and nephews are here folliowed by a lengthy list of their known publications complete with cross-references to other reference works, and this offering also includes the Appendix librorum sub Stephanorum nominibus impressorum, which is often lacking.    Vol. I contains => a frontispiece of Robert Estienne signed by the great English engraver John Sturt, best known for having engraved the entire Book of Common Prayer on silver plates and for illustrating Pilgrim's Progress. Additionally, the volume features 16 facsimile images on three pages, printed from woodcut blocks, showing => the evolution of the iconic Estienne printer's device. This copy appears to have the first sectional title-page bound after the first two pages of text instead of proceeding them.    Provenance: Delightfully artistic inked initials "E.L." on front pastedown, with the note "collated & perfect" in the same hand at the end. Most recently in the library of American collector Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.         ESTC T99611; Schreiber, Estiennes, 294; Bigmore & Wyman, Bibliography of Printing, II, pp. 14–6. On Maittaire, see: DNB (online). 18th-century speckled calf, rebacked with very similar calf stamped, ruled, and lettered in gilt with red leather label; covers double-ruled in gilt with flower stamps at corners, board edges with floral gilt rolls, all edges speckled red. Pencilled and inked notes on endpapers, evidence of a bookplate removed long ago. Light age-toning with a small stain or two, provenance evidence as above, one leaf with short later inked notes. => Impressive piece of early Estienne scholarship in a very good copy.

      - Antique print, titled: 'The VII United Provinces Corrected from the Observations Communicated to the Royal Society at London, & ye Royal Academy at Paris' - This splendid map shows the seven United Provinces that comprised the Netherlands in 1709, in the reign of Queen Anne in England. The coastline is drawn in detail with its harbors, inlets, bays and islands. The Zuyder Zee is depicted as a large body of water in Northern Holland, filled by the sea with Amsterdam located on its southwestern shore. There is very good detail inland of cities, towns, roads, forests, hills, rivers and canals. The North Sea (here called the German Sea) is filled with a magnificent title cartouche surmounted by King Neptune, with sea-horses, mer-men, a sea monster, and fishing nets full of fish below. The title also includes a dedication to Elihu Yale Esq. (1649 - 1721), an English merchant and philanthropist. Although Yale was born in Boston, he spent his career in the service of the East India Company, where he made a fortune in India. He made many financial donations to Yale University, which was renamed in his honor in 1718. Yale retired to England during his later years, where he remained until his death in 1721.

John Senex was a surveyor, engraver, bookseller and publisher in early 18th century London. During the early part of his career, Senex was in business with publisher Charles Price in London. When they parted ways in 1710, Senex began working with publisher John Maxwell until 1714, when they jointly published The English Atlas. Condition: Fair, given age. Paper crinkled and creased.

         Portrait of Bernard Picart

      Portrait of the engraver Bernard Picart, in an interior. The artist is represented as dressed in a costly robe with a floral motive. He's leaning agains a table on which is a print that he himself made in 1709. This mezzotint is so amazingly detailed that all the inscriptions in it are readable, from those reproduced in the print on the table to the titles of the books in the shelves in the background. On the table also the tools of the engraver. French-born Picart was an extremely refined engraver and his work has been much appreciated by his contemporaries. As demonstrated in this fine portrait he was on the one hand an erudite - among the titles of the books are 'Raphael et la Sveve' and 'COREGE' - and a wealthy artist. Lettered on the bottom: 'NEC VETERA ASPERNERE, NEC INVIDEAS HODIERNIS. / BERNARDUS PICARTUS, Delineator & Sculptor, Stephani Picarti, cui / Romano cognomen, Filius, natus Lutetiae 11 Junii anni MDCLXXIII a J. Marc / Nattier pictus anno MDCCIX & á N. Verkolje l. m. aere expressus Amstelodami MDCCXV'. This is an advanced state; for first state see at the Rijksmuseum cat. RP-P-1911-185. Inscription on the print on the table: 'CORNALINE connue sous le nom de cachet de Michel Ange... ' On the verso collector's mark not in Lugt. Mezzotint on paper with some margin; plate mark: 332 x 242, total: 346 x 254; in outstanding conditions; Wurzbach 7, Nagler 7
