        The Residual Analysis; A New Branch of the Algebraic Art, Of very extensive Use, both in Pure Mathematics, and Natural Philosophy. Book I [all published].

      London: Printed for the Author; and sold by L. HawesÉ[et al.], 1764. - John Landen (1719-1790) was the most notable British mathematician in the second half of the eighteenth century. At the time when British mathematics was held back by inadequate notation, an unfortunate consequence of the Newton-Leibniz dispute, he was the only Englishman to score major advances in mathematics and in the art of computation. In this, his most important work, he attempted to replace the fluxional calculus with an analytic method "founded entirely on the anciently received principles of algebra." A second volume was planned, but it never appeared. According to Lacroix, this was the first attempt to reduce the infinitesimal calculus to "purely mathematical notions" (Oxford DNB). Landen's writings served as the starting point for investigations by Euler, Lagrange, and Legendre. He also developed the theorem known by his name for expressing the length of a hyperbolic arc in terms of the lengths of arcs in two ellipses. Quarto. viii, "218" [i.e., 128] pp. Five engraved folding plates. With list of subscribers. Recent tan calf over marbled boards, Gilt-ruled spine with crimson morocco label. A little light foxing. A very good copy of a scarce book. First edition. ESTC lists nine copies in North America. Wallis, Biobibliography of British Mathematics 754LAN64. Smith, History of Mathematics, p. 459. Cf. DSB.

        Recueil sur les naissances tardives.1°) (BOUVART M.-Ph.) ; Examen d'un livre qui a pour titre T.Tronchin ¿ De colica pictonum, par un médecin de Paris. Genève, (s.n.), 1758 ; - 2°) (BOUVART M.-Ph.,.) Consultation contre la légitimité des naissances prétendues tardives. S.l., s.n., 1764 - 3°) LOUIS Mémoire contre la légitimité des naissances prétendues tardives ; dans lequel on concilie les loix civiles avec celles de l'oeconomie animale. Paris, P.G. Cavelier, 1764 - 4°) LE BAS Question importante. Peut-on déterminer un terme préfix pour l'accouchement. Paris, Simon, 1764 ¿ 5°) PETIT A. Lettres pour servir de réponses à un écrit qui porte pour titre : Lettre à M.Bouvart. Amsterdam, Hérissant, 1769.

      Paris 1764 - Réunion de cinq ouvrages en 1 vol. in-8, 68 pp., (2), 41 pp., 92 pp., (2), II, 114 pp., (2), 174 pp. (mal chiffré 274), demi-basane mouchetée, dos à nerfs, pièce de titre, mors fendus en tête et en queue, coins émoussés et dénudés (reliure modeste) ; cachet au titre, bon état intérieur, exemplaire à grandes marges. Recueil de cinq ouvrages, dont quatre relatifs à la polémique sur les naissances tardives. Ces textes rares portent sur un des grands débats d'idées médicales qui se sont déroulés au XVIIIe siècle. La possibilité ou non d'accouchements retardés fut l'objet de vives discussions, auxquelles participèrent Le Bas, Bouvart, Louis et Petit, dont les arguments respectifs sont exposés dans ce recueil. 1°) Le seul rapport de cet ouvrage avec les autres de ce recueil est son auteur, qui fut l'un des principaux acteurs de ce débat sur les naissances tardives. Bouvart montre ici son érudition et son esprit polémique, que l'on retrouvera dans l'ouvrage suivant. 2°) Ouvrage faisant suite à une première consultation faite auprès de huit membres (médecins ou chirurgiens) sur la légitimité des naissances prétendues tardives. La commission avait répondu à l'unanimité par l'affirmative aux deux questions suivantes. Un homme de 75 ans, atteint de gangrène à la jambe, peut-il faire un enfant à sa femme ? Un enfant né 10 mois ½ après la mort du mari de sa mère peut-il et doit-il être regardé comme légitime ? Cet ouvrage rapporte l'avis de neuf autres membres (Bouvart, Poissonnier, Bellot, ¿) opposées aux conclusions précédentes. Il provoqua une longue polémique. 3°) Antoine Louis (1723-1792), éminent chirurgien, essaye de fixer la durée minimale et la durée maximale de la grossesse. Il fixe le terme le plus long à neuf mois et dix jours, ce qui provoqua une vive réplique de Le Bas. Louis sera ainsi amené à faire paraître quelques mois plus tard un Supplément qui ne figure pas dans cet exemplaire. Cet ouvrage est remarquable, tant pour la forme que pour le fond. Garrison & Morton, 1731 4°) Jean Le Bas (1717-1797), né à Orléans, fut chirurgien et censeur royal. Il fut le premier à préconiser dans la césarienne l'incision transversale et la suture de l'utérus. Il soutient ici la possibilité de ces naissances tardives. 5°) Antoine Petit (1718-1794), né également à Orléans, étudia la chirurgie à Paris et fut reçu docteur régent. Il admet également les naissances tardives, s'opposant à Bouvard. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Sealy on the front paste-down end-paper of each vlume and is autograph on the upper margin of the title-page of each volume. Sealy was the author of A Treatise on Coins, Currency, and Banking: With Observations on the Bank act of 1844 and on the Reports of the Committees of the House of Lords and of the House of Commons on the Bank Acts (1858), so this seems to be a useful book for him to have had in his library. Abot de Bazinghen (1711 - 1791) discusses the history of coins and coinage from its beginnings up to the first quarter of the 18th century. The emphasis is, of course, upon French coins, but he also gives some account in Asia and Africa. Germain Garnier, in his edition of the Wealth of Nations, vol. v., p. 234, says the book "n'est guère qu'une compilation faite sans soin et sans discernment," and explains that the mint price remained in force a very short time. It having failed to bring bullion to the mint, much higher prices were successively offered, and when the Wealth of Nations was published the seignorage only amounted to about 3 per cent. On the silver coin it was then about 2 per cent., in place of the 6 per cent. stated by Bazinghen, p. 590. Graesse 315, Kress Lib 5161, Goldsmith Lib. 9994. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Joseph Galloway was one of the leaders of the Pennsylvania Assembly, and a close ally of Benjamin Franklin. Through this speech and other measures he won the support of the Assembly for a petition to King George III pleading that the proprietary governors of Pennsylvania be replaced by direct royal government. Galloway would go on to become the most prominent American Loyalist during the Revolution. John Dickinson, whose speech prompted this response from Galloway, would go on to write LETTERS FROM A FARMER IN PENNSYLVANIA..., the most important document of the Stamp Act crisis.

        The Virtues of Cinnabar and Musk, against the Bite of a Mad Dog. Printed by John Baskerville

      John Baskerville, for the Author, Birmingham 1764 - Rare Medical Book Printed by Baskerville[Baskerville, John (1706-75).] Dalby, Joseph (d. 1784). The virtues of cinnabar and musk, against the bite of a mad dog . . . 4to. [8], 3-56pp. (leaf B1 not present as in all copies). Birmingham: John Baskerville, for the author, 1764. 256 x 203 mm. Full morocco, gilt-ruled, in antique style. Marginal repairs to title and one or two other leaves, not affecting text, but very good. Errata corrected in an early hand.First Edition, second state, with the title dated 1764. "The title-page is also found in an earlier state, with line 7 set in English instead of Great Primer and ending with a full point instead of a colon, and with the last line reading: M DCC LXII. Both states are printed from the same setting of type (with these exceptions), and neither is found as a cancel" (Gaskell). Dalby's short work on the treatment of hydrophobia is the first of only two medical books printed by Baskerville, the other being William Hunter's Anatomy of the Human Gravid Uterus (1774). Unlike the Gravid Uterus, Dalby's work is extremely rare on the market, with no auction records over the past 25 years; this is the first copy we have seen in over 40 years of trading. The work was printed for the author and sold by subscription. The subscribers' list (leaves a2-a4) cites fewer than 200 people, it is likely that the edition was not much larger than that.
