        American Mathematical Textbooks 1760-1850 : Collection for sale

      1760-1850. A substantial collection of American textbooks of arithmetic, algebra, and geometry, including representative selections of primers combining lessons in spelling, reading, and writing with arithmetic, designated for use in schools, academies, and lyceums; textbooks of natural philosophy, astronomy, and mathematical geography specified for use in colleges; and ready-reckoners and other books of tables intended for tradesmen. Although textbooks for all levels of instruction are offered, the collection is strongest in those prepared for use in elementary and secondary schools. The reform of mathematical education through the introduction of "Pestalozzian" or child-centred methods of instruction is thus amply documented. The collection was built using as a guide Louis C. Karpinski's magisterial Bibliography of mathematical works printed in America through 1850 (Ann Arbor 1940, with three supplements published 1941-1954). Karpinski investigated the holdings of more than one hundred libraries and found that nine had purposefully collected in this field. According to his tabulated analysis, our collection would have occupied sixth rank, nearly approximating the holdings of Columbia University, exceeding those of Boston Public Library and New York Public Library. We offer 269 different works, plus 192 subsequent editions, for a total of 511 printed books, and in addition five manuscript ciphering and exercise books. Thirty-three eighteenth-century books are offered, fifty-five printed 1801-1810, sixty-five printed 1811-1820, ninety-five printed 1821-1830, 129 printed 1831-1840, 124 printed 1841-1850, and ten printed post-1850. Forty-one books in the collection are editions not recorded by Karpinski. Twenty-six books represent editions not yet recorded in the American Bibliography 1801-1819 (New York 1958-1966) and Checklist of American Imprints 1820-1844 (New York, Metuchen & London 1964-1993), the principal bibliographical tools available for the study of nineteenth-century American books. Another seventeen books in the collection have imprints different to those stated in the Checklist. With few exceptions, the books are offered in original condition and in original bindings, and the collection is thus of interest also to historians of the book. Textbooks published in the period before 1820 commonly were offered in three styles of binding: scaleboard (a shingle of wood, backed with leather, finished with either blue paper or marbled paper on covers), leather-backed boards covered by marbled paper, and full leather. In this collection, twenty books are in scaleboard bindings, forty-five in paper boards finished with marbled paper, and 259 in full-leather, the most expensive (and durable) binding. About 1820, a type of publishers' binding with printed covers became popular. Eighty-nine books are in such bindings, the earliest published in 1815, and several of these binding contribute valuable bibliographical evidence. A few books still retain coverings in cloth and paper fashioned by pupils to protect them from wear. As a rule, textbooks have been inscribed, drawn-on, or otherwise marked, more consistently than most books, by readers who are not usually purchasers. Few owners failed to write at least their names on the endleaves; many pupils added incantations against borrowers and thieves of books, sentimental verses of affection to other students, comments upon their classmates and teachers, drawings, rubbings of coins, pen trails and scrolls. Textbooks preserved in libraries are routinely rebound and this evidence of ownership discarded, to the detriment of scholarship. For example, forty books in this collection have ownership inscriptions by girls. When mathematics became inserted in the elementary curriculum, it was taught to boys and girls alike, however girls did not progress to study algebra and geometry. Ownership entries in books in this collection suggests that the moment of transition, when the stereotype of the non-mathematical feminine mind eroded sufficiently for algebra and geometry to be taught to girls, occurred about 1840. This early date contradicts suppositions about the elementary curriculum made recently by several historians. For additional information, click the PDF icon above.

Metallurgische Experimente im Anschluß an Naxagoras' (Pseudonym) einflußreichen Traktat "Chymischer und Alchymistischer Particular-Zeiger", der 1706 bis 1726 mehrere Auflagen erlebt hatte.

Unter Berufung etwa auf Johann Joachim Becher und Georg Ernst Stahl (deren chemische Schriften die Grundlage für Stahls "Phlogistontheorie" über die Verbrennungsvorgänge bildeten), stellt Rost seine Schmelz- und Scheideversuche mit Legierungen vor und diskutiert die Resultate in Auseinandersetzung mit den Vorläufern. - Holzmann/Bohatta IV, 13489 (ungenau); Wellcome II, 382 (anonym, Initialen nicht aufgelöst); nicht bei Cole, Duveen, Ferchl, Ferguson, Neu usw. - Sorgfältig gereinigt, grüne Schnittfarbe im Kopfsteg verlaufen.

        Edinburgh Evening Courant. June 4, 1760 - Sept. 7, 1761. Approx. 195 issues. Folio.

      Edinburgh: printed for R. Fleming and Company. 1760-61 - 36 x 24cm. (14 x 9½ inches.) 4 pages. Thrice weekly. Price 3½d. Halfpenny stamp. First 2, and final issue defective, issue for June 22, 1761 with rectangular paper repair to central crease not affecting sense; trimmed close to top edge with occasional sl. loss, some occasional water staining; issues mostly good & clean. Half calf, spine rebacked with paper. Published between Dec. 1718 - Dec. 1871. ESTC P2048. Preceded by only a handful of papers, most notably the Edinburgh Gazette, 1699, and the Edinburgh Courant, 1705. The 4 pages usually comprise two sides of advertisements (occasionally illustrated), foreign news - defeat of the French in India, the March of Russian troops into Berlin and battles in America between the British and French armies and Indian tribes - and a leading article or correspondence. These letters and articles provide both domestic & foreign news: from the death and interment of George II (Oct. 29 - Nov. 12, 1760), the court-martial of Admiral Byng (Aug. 23, 1760) and ?the unhappy murder of Mr Mathews? (Sept. 10, 1760), to a ?description of an entertainment given by the Indians of North America? (Oct 25 1760), an ?extract from the celebrated life of Mr Handel (Aug. 4, 1760) and numerous letters from soldiers in America (Oct. 4, 1760). For those unfortunate enough to be bitten by a mad dog, a rather painful remedy is suggested by J. Parsons on August 30, 1760 - the rubbing of salt into the wound.

        L'Oracle des nouveaux philosophes. [-Suite de l'Oracle des nouveaux philosophes]. Pour servir de suite et d'éclaircissement aux Oeuvres de M. de Voltaire.

      Berne, s.n. 1760 - 2 volumes in-8, XVI-374 pp. et [4]-VIII pp., puis pp. chiffrées 375-850, basane fauve marbrée, dos à nerfs cloisonnés et fleuronnés, pièces de titre, tranches rouges (reliure de l'époque). Infimes épidermures sur les plats, mais bon exemplaire. L'originale du premier volume est parue en 1759 ; le second volume, contenant la Suite, est ici en édition originale (premier tirage). L'ancien Oratorien Claude-Marie Guyon (1699-1771) était plus coutumier des compilations historiques faciles ; ici, l'ouvrage forme un essai d'apologétique catholique contre les conceptions des "philosophes", notamment Voltaire, et il lui valut d'une part l'estime (et une pension) du clergé, d'autre part les sarcasmes un peu énervés du principal intéressé.

        The Works of Mr William Shakespear Volume the Third

      Printed for Hitch and Hawes et al., London; 1760. 32mo. This is the third volume of the complete works of shakespeare, a very rare 18th century volume edited by Sir Thomas Hanmer, based on the editions by Pope and Theobold. This volume contains the plays 'As You Like It', 'The Taming of the Shrew', 'All's Well That Ends Well' and 'Tweflth Night; or What You WIll'.This exceptional book is tightly bound in leather with gilt lettering to the spine. There is the inevitable rubbing to the covers for a book this age and some bumping and chipping to the spine ends and corners. However, this little book is in excellent condition. Internally, there is a very small, neat ownership inscription to the front free endpaper and some mild age spotting and toning to the endpapers and page extremities. Apart from this, there is only very slight age spotting on the main pages, which is remarkable for a book of this age. In all, this little book is indeed a rare find, being both a scarce volume and in such lovely condition. This is a must have for any literature collector or Shakespeare enthusiast and would make an excellent investment as it is sure to grow in value with time. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you would like further details on this beautiful book.

        Historical Pastime or a New Game of the History of England from the Conquest to the Accession of George the Third.

      Harris and Wallis Corner of St Paul's Churchyard London early 19th Century - Engraved children's game, dissected and mounted on linen, orginal hand-colour. Dimensions: 550 × 510mm (21.75 × 20 inches). An uncommon and early edition of a popular historical race game designed for the education of young children, beginning at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 and ending with the accession of King George III in 1760. In an advertisement for the game, the author hoped that the 'utility and tendency of this Game must be obvious at first sight; for surly there cannot be a more agreeable study than History'. The game saw children using a teetotum, or spinning top, to progress through English history in a clockwise direction, with each child assigned a letter to play with and a set of rules that either rewarded or fined the players dependent on which of the 158 medallions they landed upon during the game. The rules for each of the medallions greatly differed, for example the player had to land on the Doomsday medallion in order to continue, and could not share medallions with other players apart from The Holy Land. Despite the monarchic character of the game, medallions also highlight controversy, such as Edward II's supposed love affair with Pierre Gaveston. The game also saw later Victorian editions, with the Queen in the centre. Available here, as usual, without the separately published booklet of rules, this example belongs to an early edition, quite possibly the first of 1803 which was published 6 years before King George III's Golden Jubilee - an event that set a precedent for the public celebrations we see today. Uncommon: COPAC lists only 7 locations.

Innocêncio had only seen complete copies of the first and fourth editions. This is due to the fact that the second and third editions of the first two volumes, and the second edition of the third volume were counterfeits, purporting to be the first editions, but actually counterfeits printed by José António da Silva, possibly in 1726, 1727, 1728, and 1747 (see Payan Martins).Manuel Bernardes (1644-1710), one of Portugal's greatest writers, studied law and philosophy at Coimbra, then spent most of his life at the Congregação do Oratorio in Lisbon. According to Bell, "His style is marked in an equal degree by grace and concision, intensity and restraint, smoothness and vigour . His reputation as a lord of language has survived every test" (Portuguese Literature p. 249).*** Innocêncio V, 374-5; XVI, 135 no. 18. Barbosa Machado III, 194-6: mentioning only the first edition.
