         Discours sur la Polysynodie, où l'on démontre que la Polysinodie, ou pluralité des Conseils, est la forme la plus avantageuse pour un Roi, et pour son royaume.

      À Amsterdam, chez Du Villard et Changuion 1719 - in-12, [20]-265-[6]-[12] pp., veau moucheté, dos orné à nerfs, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge (rel. de l'époque). Seconde édition après l'édition in-4 de 1718. Le Discours sur la Polysynodie qui blâmait ouvertement la politique de gloire personnelle de Louis XIV fit scandale à la cour et, sur l'injonction du Régent, fit exclure son auteur de l'Académie (comme le confirme d'ailleurs une note manuscrite ancienne sur la page de garde). Sa disgrâce ne l'empêcha pourtant pas de continuer ses critiques et d'établir des projets dans le sens de l'amélioration du sort de l'humanité. Bon exemplaire malgré deux coins usés.

A few minor scratches and scuffs to boards, corners lightly bumped, front hinge cracked, light toning to text. A notably well-preserved copy. $1,250. * First edition. Holdsworth thought highly of this book, noting its "a learned book-the author tells us that he had consulted nearly a hundred authorities; the idea of making such a book was original; and the main features of the constitution are set out." In his preface, Jacob indicates that he did not write this treatise on England's Constitution for the landed gentry exclusively, but for "gentlemen of all ranks," that is, the literate general public. This distinction is significant. Jacob, though certainly interested in boosting sales by attracting the widest audience possible, was an idealist who believed that widespread knowledge of the law would help create a more just society. This is also evident in his other publications, such as A Tr.

XLIX - LXIV) + 378 (hereof 14 full plates engravings and 120 engravings in the text (mostly almost full-paged sized) + one double paged view of a vulcano (between pp. 78 and 79)) + (16 pages of index) + 1 leaf of notes to the bookbinder (with a vignette) + titleleaf in red and black with vignette + p. 3-54 (with 20 almost full sized engravings. Contemporary full vellum binding, boards a bit bowed (as are commonly seen with old vellum bindings). A bit of foxing, mainly in the margins. Printed on good paper. Small hole to the flyleaf. Still a very nice copy indeed. * Very scarce. Magnificent work from the Vatican: Michael Mercati (1541-96), director of the Vatican Botanical Garden, was a could-have-been groundbreaking paleonthologist, if he hadn't died before completing this work. It is built on his vast and systematic collection of minerals, fossils and shells, which were cased in 19 large cabinets in his "Metallotheca" (as a supplement to the "Bibliotheca", but also with a section on marble samples, described from some of the newly found antique masterpieces situated in the Vatican, as "Laocoon" and "Apollo Belvedere". This work - written in the 16th century - would surely have placed him as one of the founding fathers of paleonthology and geology, but due to his death, the work was not completed, but only consisted of the magnificent copperplate engravings (a highlight of renaissance skills) and approximately half of the texts for the various cabinets done. An attempt to get the work published was made by Carlo Roberti Dati in the 17th century, but to no avail. Other pioneers like Nicolaus Steno (1638-86) saw - and was influenced by - the unfinished work in the Vatican, and used one of the most iconic copperplates (of a shark skull) in his Canis carchariae dissectum caput (1667). When the Metallotheca was finally published in 1717, its discoveries were mainly sadly overtaken by 125 years of research. Nevertheless the finished book was a masterpiece of prints and typography (with text mainly in Latin, but also in Greek, Hebrew and Arabic), making a monument for the neglected genius. In 1719, an even more magnificent B-issue was made: The main book block was still the first edition, but a new title page was issued (stating 1719) and 20 of the plates were remade and added, notably both Laocoon and Apollo Belvedere, making artistically new impressions of them. One of the highlights of renaissance scientific works, though printed with 125 years delay.** Some copies of the "Appendix" were published as a seperate book; apparently these have a frontespiece portrait of the editor Lancis. This frontespiece portrait is not present in this copy, but nor does it seem to have been there: the leaf signatures speak against it, and the book appears complete and comtemporarily bound.

Tatsächlich stammt das polemische Buch wohl zumindest teilweise vom Übersetzer, dem spanischen Dominikaner Alfonso Buenhombre (gest. 1353); unter dem Titel "Epistola Rabbi Samuelis" wurde es um 1480 in Venedig erstmals gedruckt. - Das Werk Kirchners, eines zum Christentum konvertierten Rabbiners, erschien erstmals 1716 und ist wegen seiner detaillierten Beschreibungen jüdischen Lebens von Wert; frühe Ausgaben sind wesentlich seltener als die überarbeiteten illustrierten Fassungen von 1724 und 1726.

Cet ouvrage, composé de fables entièrement de l'invention de l'auteur – contrairement à celles de La Fontaine, inspirées des fabulistes anciens –, "occupe dans l'histoire du livre illustré du XVIIIe siècle une place exceptionnelle. Il mérite d'être considéré comme un trésor" (Dacier). On y trouve 102 vignettes à l'eau-forte (env. 95 x 75 mm), dont 67 de Claude Gillot, gravées par lui-même pour la plupart, les autres d'après Coypel, Edelinck, Picart, Ranc et Vleughels. Mariette appelait ces figures "des chefs-d'œuvre dans leur genre" et Caylus, dans sa vie d'Antoine Watteau, affirmait que Gillot "sera à jamais célèbre dans la gravure à l'eau-forte par l'intelligence et l'agrément avec lesquels il a représenté la plus grande partie des Fables de La Motte". Bel exemplaire ; quelques habiles restaurations à la reliure. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Libellus de materia medica et remediorum formulis, quae serviunt aphorismis de cognoscendis et curandis morbis.

      Lugduni Batavorum, Apud Isaacum Severinum, 1719, 8, 12, 259, 45 pp, (1 p. Hi Libri Medici .. Is. Severinum), Pergamenteinband der Zeit feines Exemplar. The 'genuine edition' - the rare first edition of Boerhaave's collection of prescriptions !Herman Boerhaave (1768-1738) "is remarkably moderate in the preface to his own edition that he wrote on 1 February 1719, and this moderation is in contrast to his sharp criticism of the pirated editions. In this preface he observes that a 'vir eruditus' in London had allowed Boerhaave's own collection of prescriptions to be published against his will and that many harmful errors had crept in. Therefore he felt obliged to publish the work himself with the necessary corrections and additions: 'so prompted, I revised and corrected it, and made some additions: use it therefore and be relieved from copying the work'.In order to guarantee the authenticity of the book he made the publisher Severinus sign personally every copy. The small book ran to 259 pages and was provided with an extensive index. It was eagerly received. Boerhaave himself published new editions in 1721 and in 1727, and in other countries it was frequently reprinted, even after Boerhaave's death. The last edition appeared in 1776." G.A. Lindeboom, 2nd. Ed., pp.79-80"Preface dated February 18, 1719. Index of Samuel DuRy, doctor of medicine and practising physician. One finds on the inside of the titlepage of the first edition: "Auctor nulla hujus Libelli agnoscit exempla, nisi quae siut edita apud Bibliopolam, qui sum ipse nomen hic subscripsit. (Signature: I.

         Optice: sive de Reflexionibus, Inflexionibus & Coloribus Lucis, Libri Tres

      Gul. & Joh. Innys, London 1719 - A beautiful, pristine copy of the 1719 second edition in Latin of Isaac Newton's "other" great masterwork in science, "Opticks." Newton's "Principia Mathematica," first published in 1687, is generally considered THE greatest scientific book ever published. The first edition of the "Opticks" appeared in 1704 in English and 1706 in Latin. Although this 1719 Latin second edition was published during Newton's lifetime (died 1726), the majority of the groundbreaking work contained within was done while Newton was a young man, barely out of Cambridge University (1661-1665). The same is true of his other masterwork, the "Principia." This second edition contains Newton's famous "Queries" including the celebrated 28th query on the nature of light. This copy is in very good to near-fine condition, with immaculate pages and plates throughout. All edges untrimmed. When originally purchased by this seller, the book was completely unsophisticated, bound in its original carta rustica (heavy paper) trade binding which needed attention. The book was re- bound in its present leather (with protective slipcase) by the former Heritage Bookshop bindery in Los Angeles. This book is in solid, pristine condition with all plates and pages present and clean. Collation: Ad leaf before title page, title and pp. xii (errata on p. [xii]), 415, [1, advertisements]; with twelve folding engraved plates. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Full title: "Epistolae physiologicae super compluribus naturae arcanis ubi variorum animalium atque plantarum fabrica, conformatio, proprietates atque operationes, novis & hactenus inobservatis experimentis illustrantur & oculis exhibentur item peculiaries & hactenus incognitae rerum quarumdam qualitates explicatur: ut sequens pagina docet: hactenus numquam editae. Cum figuris aeneis & indice locupletissimo."First Latin edition of Van Leeuwenhoek's "His Send-Brieven" (Delft 1718) on microscopic discoveries, previously only available in Dutch.FIRST MORPHOLOGIC DESCRIPTION OF NERVE FIBERS !"The letter in which A.v.L.'s description of nerve fibers appeared is dated 2 March 1717 and addressed to one Doctor Abraham van Bleyswyk. It was first published as part of Van Leewenhoeck (1718), Send-brief (letter) XXXII. One year later it was made accessible to the scientific world outside The Netherlands by its translation into Latin (Epistola XXXII, pp.310-317) in his "Epistolae physiologicae super compluribus naturae arcanis" (1719).""It was the first morphologic description of nerve fibers, a description based upon microscopic observation. And was accompanied by five fine drawings by Willem van der Wilt ." Holger Hydén, The Neuron (1967, pp.10-16"One of the most interesting features relating to the letter of 2 March 1717 is the accompanying illustration (fig.2) for it is probably the first attempt to represent the cross section of a peripheral nerve. Individual nerve fibers can be seen, and the central stroke contained in each is meant to indicate the collapsed central tube, which he assumed was present or, as we should put it today, the axis cylinder surrounded by the myelin sheath. It seems likely therefore that Leeuwenhoek observed the myelinated nerve fibre although his interpretation was incorrect and having discovered no cavities in the nerve itself, he found in the individual fibers the hollowness that the then current theory of nerve function demanded. The thin section of the nerves which he cut was probably the first ever." Edwin Clarke and C.D. O'Malley, The human brain and spinal cord. 2nd. Ed. (1996), pp.30-35Edwin Clarke & C.D. O'Malley and Holger Hydén both reproduce the illustrations from the Latin edition from 1719.

This volume contains the first translation from the original Dutch of the complete series of 46 roman-numbered letters addressed to i.a. A. Heinsius, G.W. Leibniz and members of the Royal Society in London, dealing with Van Lceuwenhoek's microscopical observations of both organic and inorganic structures and his commentaries on observations by his colleagues. The most important contributions Leeuwenhoek were made in the fields of microbiology, sexual reproduction, hematology and plant anatomy. He was the first to recognize the true nature of micro-organisms and gave the first descriptions of bacteria (scraped front his teeth), protozoa and rotifers.The 31 unnumbered plates are facing following pages: 1 (p.3), 2 (p.15), 3 (p.25), 4 (p.47) , 5 (p.100), 6 (p.102), 7 (p.114), 8 (p.151), 9 (p.176), 10 (p.215), 11 (p.215), 12 (p.223), 13 (p.226), 14 (p.234), 15 (p.240), 16 (p.243), 17 (p.260), 18 (p.266), 19 (p.270), 20 (p.274), 21 (p.294), 22 (p.312), 23 (p.318), 24 (p.330), 25 (p.332), 26 (p.334), 27 (p.356), 28 (p.363), 29 (p.390), 30 (p.408), 31 (p.424)Dobell, 28

Außerdem trägt die Ausgaben 1724 die Bezeichnung "2.Auflage"!DER DEUTSCHE HEISTER EIN MARKSTEIN DER CHIRURGIE ! Hauptwerk des Begründers der wissenschaftlichen Chirurgie in Deutschland. Die gründliche Bearbeitung der ganzen Chirurgie von der einfachen Wundbehandlung bis zur größten Operation, und die sorgfältige Darstellung des gesamten Instrumentariums, war ein bedeutender Fortschritt. Der große Erfolg seines Werkes ist daran ersichtlich, das seine Chirurgie in zahlreichen Auflagen erschienen, in vielen Sprachen übersetzt, einer ganzen Medizinergeneration dienlich war. Es ist eines der ersten vollständigen Handbücher der Chirurgie und enthält einige der schönsten chirurgischen Kupferstiche der medizinischen Literatur überhaupt. Eine ganze Reihe heute noch gebräuchlicher Instrumente werden hier erstmalig vorgestellt. Lorenz Heister (1693-1758), geboren in Frankfurt, studierte bei Ruysch, Albinus u. Boerhaave. Er war Professor der Anatomie und Chirurgie in Altdorf bei Nürnberg und Helmstedt. Seine Privatbibliothek umfasste 12.000 Bände und ca. 500 chirurgische Instrumente, teilweise aus Silber gefertigt, waren in seinem Besitz. Im Gegensatz zu den lateinischen und fremdsprachlichen Ausgaben sind alle deutschen Ausgaben selten und gesucht.Very rare first Edition! Heister's work on surgery became a standard text book and went through many editions. It was translated into Latin, English, Dutch, French, Italian, Spanish, and Japanese. Heister was the leading surgeon of the time and the founder of scientific surgery in Germany.

         Astronomical Dialogues Between a Gentleman and a Lady: Wherein The Doctrine of the Sphere, Uses of the Globes, and the Elements of Astronomy and Geography are Explain'; With a Description of the famous Instrument called the ORRERY

      London: T. Wood for Benjamin Cowse, 1719. First edition. Hardcover. Very good. 8vo. vi, 184pp. Contemporary paneled calf. Spine in six compartments, red leather lettering label, gilt; board tooled and stained in a 'Cambridge' design. Illustrated with 5 numbered plates, three of them folding, illustrating the solar system, a globe, eclipses, etc. And with an additional folding plate of the Orrery. Harris (1666-1719) was a cleric and lecturer in science and also a member of the Royal Academy. Clock makers George Graham and Thomas Tompion built the first modern orrery around 1704 in England. Graham gave the first model, or its design, to the celebrated instrument maker John Rowley of London to make a copy for Prince Eugene of Savoy. Rowley was commissioned to make another copy for his patron Charles Boyle, 4th Earl of Orrery, from which the device took its name in English. WE note a nearly imperceptible tidemark extending about half an inch. The hinges are cracked but strong, and seem to have been repaired internally at an early date. A 1723 ownership signature is on the front free end paper, and a second signature, partially cut away, but dated 1816, is across the top margin of the title page. Otherwise this is in very good condition. ESTC T113347.
