5 AMUNDSEN, Roald (1872-1928). “The North West Passage”: being the record of a Voyage of Exploration of the Ship “Gjöa” 1903-07 ... with a Supplement by First Lieutenant Hansen, Vice-Commander of the Expedition. With about one hundred and thirty-nine illustrations and three maps.
New York: E. P. Dutton, 1908. 1908 
Two volumes. 8vo. xiii, [1], 335, [1]; ix, [1], 397pp. Frontispieces, profusely illustrated, 2 color folding maps, index. Original black gilt-stamped cloth, t.e.g.; spine head a bit frayed, nick on side (joint), some freckling. Ex-library copy (paper spine label, rear library pockets): bookplates and embossed ownership stamp (the latter on titles) of the Cranbrook Institute of Science – Gustavus D. Pope Sportsman’s Library. Very good set. First American edition, also published in a British edition in 1908 and otherwise preceded by the Nordic first edition of 1907, Nordvestpassagen; beretning om Gjøa-expeditionen, 1903-1907, Kristiania [now Oslo]. This is an account of one of the most important sea-going expeditions to finally navigate and prove any possibility of a northwest passage by sea. The Amundsen party travelled via Baffin Bay, Parry Channel, and through Peel Strait and John Ross Strait, spending two winters on King William Island. “Attempts to find the Northwest Passage—a water route from Europe to Asia through the Arctic archipelago north of the Canadian mainland—began as far back as the late-15th century. After numerous failures, many involving disaster and great loss of life, the Northwest Passage finally was successfully navigated in 1903–6 by the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen (1872–1928). Amundsen and a small crew of six left Christiania (present-day Oslo, Norway) in the converted 47-ton fishing boat Gjöa on June 16, 1903. They proceeded to the west coast of Greenland, across Baffin Bay, and on to King William Island, where they spent nearly two years, conducting scientific experiments and carrying out a sledge expedition of almost 1,300 kilometers to uncharted regions to the north. The Gjöa finally left King William Island on August 13, 1905 and headed west, before stopping for the winter at King Point on the northern coast of the Yukon Territory, in northwest Canada. After their third winter in the Arctic, Amundsen and his crew resumed their journey on July 2, 1906. They arrived in Nome, Alaska, on August 31, having completed the first successful navigation of the Northwest Passage. This book, first published in Norwegian in 1907, is Amundsen’s account of the voyage. It includes much detailed information about the Eskimo tribes that Amundsen came to know and from whom he learned many Arctic survival skills. Presented here is an English-language edition of the book published in 1908. Amundsen later became, on December 4, 1911, the first man to reach the South Pole.” – World Digital Library. See: Roald Amundsen and the Exploration of the Northwest Passage. Oslo, Norway: Fram Museum. 2008. pp. 63, 65. [... “was a great achievement for Norway”]. First Edition.

7 ANGO, Pierre (1640-1694); Ignace-Gaston PARDIES (1636-1673). L’Optique Divisée en trois livres ou L’on de’ montre d’une maniere aisée tout ce qui regarde 1. la Propagation & les proprietez de la Lumiere. 2. La vision. 3. La figure & la disposition des Verres qui servent à la perfefectionner [sic].
Paris: Chez Estienne Michallet, 1682. 1682 
12mo. Collation: a4, A-P12, Q2. Pagination: [8], 120, 125-367[*], [1] pp. [* = 363 pages; some pages misnumbered]. Figures. Modern half brown morocco, marbled boards. Very good. RARE. FIRST PRINTED HYPOTHESIS ON THE WAVE THEORY OF LIGHT. First edition of this curious treatise on optics, sound, vision, refraction, color, and ‘lumination,’ incorporating Ignace Gaston Pardies’ previously unpublished treatise on optics and based largely on Aristotelian principles. Divided into three parts: Contains the pt. I: On the properties of light and its movement; pt. II: Comments on vision, including correcting sight with glasses; pt. III: devoted to assisting and improving sight, magnifying glasses, theory of the telescope (p.[vi], 190, 281) and frequently refers to the microscope (pp. 99, 106-7, 180, 186-7, 190-1, 193, 198, 200, 237, 244-8, 251-2, 254, 256-7, 265-6, 280-2, 344-366, etc.). Olivier Darrigol gives an assessment of the text: It is a work in defense of Aristotle’s views against neo-atomism as describe by Gassendi and Maignan. Instead their study of sound and light is based on Aristotelian principles. “Ango/Pardies introduced the notion of undulation by means of the picture of a vibrating body that induced alternating compressions and dilations of the contiguous layer of air, followed by similar periodic deformation of the next layer…” (p. 61). They also “introduced some of the main properties of waves by means of the water-wave illustration.” In “the case of sound, which they regarded as paradigmatic for other undulations… They indeed pioneered the concept of sound as a compression wave.” (pp. 61-2; see Ango p. 26). They rejected the sine law by Maignan [p.88] relating to refraction of undulations. With light Ango/Pardies take the position of periodic vibrating, ‘every luminous body breathes’ – also using the beating of a heart as an example. Dealing also with color theory they site Aristotle’s, De sensu. They support a curious system of corresponding ratios, comparing color to musical consonance, or a “frequency of the undulations.” (pp. 63-4). “The first author who explicitly and systematically constructed optics on the basis of analogy with sound and water waves was the Jesuit father Ignace Gaston Pardies, in a now lost manuscript written around 1670 and entitled “On the motion of undulations.” His treatise on statics, published in 1673, contains a short description of the intent of his work: first to describe the undulation of water, “a matter of game and entertainment for children, which can be the subject of a very deep meditation for the most skilled philosophers”; and then to treat sound by analogy with these undulations, and light by analogy with sound: - In a conjecture on the propagation of light, we examine whether one could not also suppose that the vehicle of light is some similar motion in a subtler air; and we show indeed that under this hypothesis one would explain in a very natural manner all the properties of light and colors, which are otherwise very difficult to explain; and I hope my reader will enjoy the manner in which the measure of refraction is demonstrated.’ – A younger Jesuit, Pierre Ango, inherited Pardies’ manuscript and exploited it in the first book of the optical treatise he published in 1682 in Paris. In an introductory letter to this treatise, Ango emphasized the analogy with sound and Pardies’ importance in this respect: ‘You will see that [this first book] contains every beautiful and solid thing that can be said on the propagation and properties of light, on colors, and even on sounds, about which I write at first in order to ease the conception of what I subsequently say on light. – There I have used some of the thoughts of the later Father Pardies which you believe to be still novel and which are in a better shape than this Father left them in the memoirs which you know I long had in my hands.’” – Olivier Darrigol, A History of Optics from Greek Antiquity to the Nineteenth Century, Oxford University Press, 2012, p. 60. Ignace-Gaston Pardies was a French scientist born in Pau, the son of an advisor at the local assembly. He was a member of the Society of Jesuits, teaching at the Lycée Louis-le-Grand in Paris. He died at 37 years of fever contracted ministering to the prisoners of Bicêtre Hospital, near Paris. Father Ango was a professor of mathematics and physics at the College of La Flèche, Rouen.

MacDonald, along with his ink ownership signature. As is.. FIRST EDITION of Oudendorps presentation of Appuleius Metamorphoses, with notes and commentaries. One of the best editions of Apuleius is that published at Leyden, in 4to. in 1786 (Dict. Univ. Hist. Crit. et Bibl. t. i., p. 442). La meilleure dition des Mtamorphoses dApulee (Moss, p. 84). Ruhnkenius has favoured us with a preface to this volume, which ranks among the completest of the Variorum quarto classics. The entire works of Colvius, Wower, Godeschalcus, Stewechius, Elmenhorst, and others, are inserted in it, and the judicious observations of Casaubon and Pricaeus have not been neglected. There are various readings from nine Mss. which occasionally differ from those selected by preceding critics (Dibdin). PROVENANCE: Duncan Black MacDonald (1863-1943) was an American Orientalist. He studied Semitic languages at Glasgow and then Berlin, before teaching at the Hartford Theological Seminary in the United States. His main scholarly interest was Muslim theology, which led him to the study of the One Thousand and One Nights, as he believed that the Nights stories reflected the Muslim popular piety (Wiki.pedia).

13 BAKER, Henry (1698-1774). The Microscope Made Easy. The fifth edition: with an additional Plate of the Solar Microscope, and some farther Accounts of the Polype.
London: Printed for J. Dodsley, 1769. 1769 
8vo. xvi, 324 pp. 15 engraved plates (1 is unnumbered, facing p.22), folding table (p.36), index; some offsetting of plates, occasional foxing. Modern full speckled calf, raised bands, gilt-stamped red spine label, new endleaves. Bookplates of William Strong [“Fortis et Fidelis”] and Alfred M. Hellman, M.D. Fifth edition, with additions (see title) of this extremely popular work which went into a number of editions. The first edition was issued in 1742, and was full of material that the author “compiled, abstracted and copied everything available about the instrument, even Leeuwenhoek’s plates found in the archives of the Society” [Ratcliff, p.80], this edition includes the discovery of the polyp. Even so, no one had studied Leeuwenhoek’s instruments that were considered so valuable for his own pioneering and systematic research, until Baker took the task up some 20 years later – those instruments having been donated in 1723 on Leeuwenhoek’s death. Arranged in two parts, the first dealing with various types of microscopes, their employment and adjustment, including the instruments of Wilson, Leeuwenhoek, Culpepper, Scarlett, Cuff, and Lieberkühn. The second part is devoted to the examination of natural specimens established by and similar to Hooke’s Micrographia. This work and the author’s Employment of the Microscope, contain the bulk of his more important communications to the Royal Society. Ratcliff offers more insight to the relationship Baker had with the various persons involved with instrument making, including Cuff and Lieberkühn. Some description of the distribution and translations of the edition are also mentioned. Ratcliffe also writes, “With, The Microscope Made Easy, Baker achieved an important place as microscopical observer in the Society…” (p.180). See: Dr. Marc J Ratcliff, The Quest for the Invisible: Microscopy in the Enlightenment, (2013), page 268. PROVENANCE: William Strong [“Fortis et Fidelis”], D.D., Canon and 45 years Archdeacon of Northampton (1842-1886); Alfred Myer Hellman, M.D. (1880-1955), took his medical degree at Columbia University, worked in New York, was a very well-known obstetrician. He was also an “avid” collector of medical books, represented by his bibliographical work: A collection of early obstetrical books; an historical essay with bibliographical descriptions of 37 items, including 25 editions of Roesslin's Rosengarten, 1952.

14 BANKS, Joseph (1743-1820). The Endeavour Journal of Joseph Banks 1768-1771. Edited by J. C. Beaglehole.
[Sydney]: Public Library of New South Wales, 1963. 1963 
Second edition. 2 volumes. 8vo. xxvii, [1], 476; xvi, [2], 406 pp. 4 maps (one folding), 10 + 6 color plates, 40 + 40 plates, 6 illus., index. Original rouge gilt-stamped cloth, dust-jackets; vol. II. jacket with edge tear. Very good. “Appointed as the expedition’s official botanist, a 25-year-old Joseph Banks travelled on Captain Cook’s first great voyage to the South Pacific in 1768. After landing on the island of Tahiti, Banks was soon to become an invaluable member of the crew by virtue of the friendly relations he struck up with the islanders; a mutual trust he built up through his openness, natural curiosity and fascination with their customs and way of life. In his willingness to learn their language, eat their food, sleep in their huts, record their customs and partake in their rituals, Banks was pioneering a new kind of science – that of ethnology. As the weeks progressed his botanical observations increasingly gave way to a study of the people (“studies” that were not always at arm’s length!). His experiences in his three month stay on the island are recorded in his Endeavour Journal. The journal is unique in character, not merely in terms of its content but also, as the writer Richard Holmes comments, “for their racy style, appalling spelling and non-existent punctuation.” “The Endeavour's stay in a wide, shallow bay south of the present day Sydney from 28 April to 5 May 1770, yielded so many previously unrecorded specimens to Bank's botanical collections that Cook named the area 'Botany Bay'.”
