LA GRANGE, JOSEPH LOUIS:
2 parts. Paris, Chez la Veuve Desaint, Libraire; Philippe-Denys Pierres 1788. With copperengraved vignette. XII + 512 pp. Copy on good paper with a wide margin, weakly browning. Bound in one contemporary full leather binding of marbled calf. Binding nicely restored with a new label.. Grolier/Horlbit 61. Norman 1257.Joseph-Louis Lagrange (1736 - 1813), one of the notable French mathematicians of the Revolutionary period, is remembered for his work in the fields of analysis, number theory and mechanics. Like Laplace and Legendre, Lagrange was assisted by d'Alembert, and it was on the recommendation of the latter and the urging of Frederick the Great himself that Lagrange succeeded Euler as the director of mathematics at the Prussian Academy of Sciences in Berlin. The Mécanique analytique which Lagrange had written in Berlin, was published in 1788. In this work, claimed to be the most important on classical mechanics since Newton, Lagrange developed the law of virtual work, from which single principle the whole of solid and fluid mechanics can be derived. The Mécanique analytique summarised all the work done in the field of mechanics since the time of Newton and is notable for its use of the theory of differential equations. With this work Lagrange transformed mechanics into a branch of mathematical analysis. He wrote in the Preface: 'One will not find figures in this work. The methods that I expound require neither constructions, nor geometrical or mechanical arguments, but only algebraic operations, subject to a regular and uniform course.'

JONES, WILLIAM. - [FOUNDING COMPARATIVE PHILOLOGY - PMM 235]
(Calcutta, Printed and sold by Manuel Cantopher, and sold at London by P. Elmsly, 1788). 4to. Extracted and bound in a recent vey nice marbled dark blue paper-binding w. matching gilt burgundy leather title-label to front board. A very nice and clean copy. Pp. 415-431 ¶ The seminal first edition of this groundbreaking paper which determined the connection between the Indo-European languages and thereby founded comparative philology and Indo-European studies. "This slim paper read to the Bengal Asiatic Society and published in its "Transaction" marks a turning-point in the history of linguistics and signaled the birth of comparative philology." (PMM 235).Sir William Jones (1746-1794) was an English philologist and judge who was stationed in India in 1780. He is the founder of the Asiatic Society and now famous as the discoverer and propounder of the existence of a relationship between the Indo-European languages. As he was stationed in India, he set out to master the ancient Sanskrit language, among other things in order to study native Indian law codes, which were written in this language. Due to his excellent language skills and his already perfect mastering of Greek and Latin, Jones discovered a shocking similarity between the languages in a huge number of words. By this discovery of the connection between Latin, Greek and Sanskrit, Jones had, without realizing it initially, discovered what was to be known as proto-Indo-European, -the lost mother tongue of almost all European, Indian and Russian languages as well as some Middle Eastern ones. And thus, with this breakthrou … [Click Below for Full Description]

HUYN, P.N. - [GAMES OF CHANCE]
[No place], 1788. 8vo. Bound in a recent full blue paper binding w. paper title-label to front board. Uncut. A bit of minor soiling to title-page, otherwise nice and clean. 51 pp.. The scarce first edition of this interesting book on games of chance and the theory of probability connected thereto. Huyn's profound study of the possible series and combinations within the mentioned games of cards, roulette, lotto, and various other chance- or hazard-games, is based on mathematical theories of statistics. Among other things Huyn, in the present work, shows that it is impossible to win in uneven games and that all attempts to speculate in these are wrong and prove to be false. As such, "La Théorie de hazard" provides us with an important early contribution to the analysis of chance games and a valuable work of very practical probability theory. The present work stands at the midst of a new scientific approach to games of hazard, which also directly influenced the art and manners of trick-games and tricksters. Apart from the mathematical approach to the subject, Huyn also thoroughly explains the rules of the games and even has observations on the moral aspect of them.The work is very rare and is only found in few copies in libraries world-wide, e.g. only two copies on OCLC. Another edition of the book appeared in 1803, printed in Amsterdam

DAUBENTON (Louis Jean Marie)
à Paris, chez Pierres, Didot le Jeune, & Née de la Rochelle, Dessenne, 1788, pet. in 8°, de 36 tableaux imprimés au recto, cart. papier marbré orangé, titre au dos, intéressantes notes manuscrites de l'époque au verso du dernier feuillet au sujet des résidus bitumeux: Naphte, asphalte, vitrole noire, poix minérale... etc. Bon exemplaire. (Lobstein-Laurenchet). Seconde édition rare de ce tableau publié en 36 feuillets imprimés d'un seul côté car destinés à être réunis en un seul grand tableau. Il regroupe sous forme de tableau l'exposé des leçons de Daubenton au Collège royal depuis 1779. Daubenton était en effet professeur d'histoire naturelle au Collège de France et professeur de minéralogie au Muséum."The first edition of his Tableau méthodique des minéraux appeared in 1784. While they display no great originality, Daubenton's teaching and writings on mineralogy contributed significantly to the spreading of current knowledge of the subject. It was, moreover, under Daubenton's patronage that Haüy began his career." DSB XV, p.113 - Duveen p. 158 (édit. 1784) "a rare work, the pages of which, being printed on one side only, were presumably intended to be stuck on boards and made up into large tables" - Poggendorf, I, col. 515 (8e édit. 1800 ) - Cole 337 (5e édit. An IV).

(6 1/8 x 3 3/4 inches). vi, 227; vi, 384pp. Expertly bound to style in contemporary tree calf, the covers with a neo-classical Greek-key roll- tool border, the flat spine tooled in gilt, divided into six compartments with a Greek-key roll, lettered in the second compartment, numbered in the fourth, the others with an elegant repeat pattern in gilt, both contained within a recent black morocco box, spine gilt. Rare first edition of the most important work of American political thought ever written and according to Thomas Jefferson "the best commentary on the principles of government." The first edition of The Federalist comprises the first collected printing of the 85 seminal essays written in defense of the newly-drafted Constitution. The essays were first issued individually by Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John Jay in New York newspapers under the pseudonym 'Publius' to garner support for the ratification of the Constitution. This first collected edition was published in early 1788: volume I published in March, contains the first 36 numbers, volume II published in May, includes the remaining 49, together with the text of the Constitution. Upon its publication, George Washington noted to Alexander Hamilton that the work "will merit the Notice of Posterity; because in it are candidly and ably discussed the principles of freedom and the topics of government, which will always be interesting to mankind" (George Washington, letter to Hamilton, 28 August 1788).

Hepplewhite, A
London: I. and J. Taylor, 1788. First edition. Hardcover. First edition. Folio (15" x 10"). George Hepplewhite died in 1786 as the plates were being engraved and the book was published by his widow, Alice. The book was very popular, running to three editions within the decade after Hepplewhite's death. This is perhaps the rarest of the three principle 18th century pattern books, Chippendale's and Sheraton's being more well known. This copy was found in poor condition and repaired and restored in 1968 by St. Michael's Abbey, Hants, England. Beautifully rebound in full brown calf with raised bands. The first 24 pages and the last three pages of this copy did not survive and were replaced with facsimiles from another copy of this work. There is some water staining to the first few extant pages and most pages have some foxing. The pages have not been trimmed. What appears to be the original owner's signature (John M. Creight) has survived and is included. Detailed digital images are available upon request.

Schöpf, Johann David:
Erlangen: Johann Jacob Palm, 1788.. Erlangen: Johann Jacob Palm, 1788.. Two volumes. [24],644,[1]; [6],xxxii,551,[1]pp. plus folding map. Modern half calf over marbled boards. Two volumes from different sets, bound uniformly. First volume foxed and dampstained. Second volume with institutional ex-libris on titlepage. Titlepage of each volume printed on thick paper. Nonetheless, a good set. The first edition of Schöpf's account of his travels along the eastern coast of America immediately following the Revolutionary War. The author was a German-trained physician who served as a field surgeon attached to the Ansbach regimen of Hessian mercenaries employed by the British during the American Revolution. After the war ended, Schöpf stayed an additional two years in America, travelling from New York City south to St. Augustine, Florida. He also spent time in the Bahamas. Howes refers to the work as the "first notable 18th century account of the United States by a German traveller." Schöpf was a careful student of natural history, and was particularly interested in the geology and mineralogy of the region. He was the author of the first significant work on American geology and the earliest MATERIA MEDICA based on plants found in eastern North America. "Among travellers in America it would be difficult to find his equal in combined breadth of interests, accuracy of observation and judgement, wit, and serene good temper...he is one of the best exemplars of the culture of the Enlightenment" - DAB.

(and only) ed., 8vo., xxxiii + (i) + 434pp. + (1 - advert), 2 folding tables, 7 plates, one double-page, some spotting, particularly to title, recently rebound in attractive half-calf, spine gilt in compartments. London, for T.Cadell, 1788. Berkenhout (1730?-1791) was born in Leeds, Yorkshire, of Dutch parents. He studied medicine at Edinburgh and Leyden after serving for a while in the Prussian army. Later, after qualifying, he was sent by the government, as one of a group of commissioners, to America, but they were not allowed to proceed beyond New York. However, Berkenhout defied the ban and reached Philadelphia where, for a short time, he was imprisoned. He was the author of a range of works in medicine, literature, natural history and politics. The present work is ?an extensive textbook of chemistry utilizing the Phlogiston theory. The author gives a short list of the beliefs of the antiphlogistians and dismisses their principles with ?It was born in France, and there let it die.? (Cole) [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A fine and attractive set of the "pocket" edition of Hamilton's vases, with unusually wide margins. Hamilton's collection of ancient vases, assembled by him after his appointment to the court of Naples in 1764, was first illustrated, described, and published between 1776 and 1777. Pierre Francois Hugues, an authority on ancient art, had introduced Hamilton to the Porcinari family, the owners of a large collection of ancient classical vases which Hamilton bought and enlarged, and then sold to the British Museum in 1772. Before their shipment of England, all the objects were listed, drawn and described under the supervision of the brilliant but unscrupulous "baron". The work was finely illustrated with hand-colored engraved plates whose 'influence on neo-classical design and taste was to be profound (Dictionary of Art).

Contemporary sheep newly rebacked, single pin-hole worm trace in the lower corner of the first 29 leaves, the same in the upper corner of the last 94 leaves, the final few leaves with a fine trace of worming in the fore-edge margin, occasional foxing, overall a very good copy, the worming quite unobtrusive. *With this ink inscription on the front paste-down - 'The Gift of Mrs. Wilkinson of Plas Grono to Mary Peters of Minera July Anno Domini 1804'. The donor was most likely the wife of JOHN WILKINSON (1728 - 1808), a pioneer of the modern, mechanized iron trade. He was born at Clifton, Cumbria, in 1728, educated at the Dissenting Academy of Caleb Rotherham at Kendal and worked with his father Isaac, in the family iron-works, from c.1748. He subsequently moved to the Midlands and established his own iron-works. In 1753 his father took a lease of the Bersham, Wrexham, furnace and with his wife and younger children took residence at Plas Grono, on the Erthig estate. John Wilkinson returned to the family enterprise and went to live in Wrexham. Using ironstone from Llwyn Einion and coal from Ponciau , the firm made all manner of iron goods. Isaac failed (c. 1761), and with John at the head of the new firm, New Bersham Co., became the leading manufacturer of ordnance for the Government [See National Library of Wales, Dictionary of Biography].

(Calcutta, Printed and sold by Manuel Cantopher, and sold at London by P. Elmsly, 1788). 4to. Extracted and bound in a recent vey nice marbled dark blue paper-binding w. matching gilt burgundy leather title-label to front board. A very nice and clean copy. Pp. 415-431 The seminal first edition of this groundbreaking paper which determined the connection between the Indo-European languages and thereby founded comparative philology and Indo-European studies. "This slim paper read to the Bengal Asiatic Society and published in its "Transaction" marks a turning-point in the history of linguistics and signaled the birth of comparative philology." (PMM 235).Sir William Jones (1746-1794) was an English philologist and judge who was stationed in India in 1780. He is the founder of the Asiatic Society and now famous as the discoverer and propounder of the existence of a relationship between the Indo-European languages. As he was stationed in India, he set out to master the ancient Sanskrit language, among other things in order to study native Indian law codes, which were written in this language. Due to his excellent language skills and his already perfect mastering of Greek and Latin, Jones discovered a shocking similarity between the languages in a huge number of words. By this discovery of the connection between Latin, Greek and Sanskrit, Jones had, without realizing it initially, discovered what was to be known as proto-Indo-European, -the lost mother tongue of almost all European, Indian and Russian languages as well as some Middle Eastern ones. And thus, with this breakthrough … [Click Below for Full Description]

A Londres, et se trouve à Lyon, chez R. Regnault, 1788. In-8 broché, couverture muette, non rogné, (ft+frt+t+544pp). Portrait gravé par Duplessi. Edition de l’année de l’originale.Financier et homme politique originaire de Genève, Necker se fit d’abord connaître par des écrits politiques et économiques, où, en particulier, il attaquait la politique de Turgot. Il fut nommé directeur du trésor puis des finances. C’est lui qui imposa la création d’assemblées provinciales associant les notables à l’administration de province, mais ce fut un véritable échec. Il tenta de se justifier dans ses écrits mais dut démissionner. Louis XVI le rappela en août 1788. Très populaire mais détesté de la cour il n’apprécia pas réellement les évènements qui se déclenchaient et qu’il avait largement favorisé en donnant au tiers état un nombre de députés équivalent aux 2 autres corps. Il démissionna et se retira à Coppet en 1790 où il publia divers ouvrages. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

These "Romances" comprise eight sentimental rhymed ballads on such themes as unhappy love, happy love, and the innocence of childhood.

(5), de VIII à XX, 386pp. Paris, Cuchet, 1788, in-8, (5), de VIII à XX, 386pp, demi-basane postérieure à petits coins, dos lisse portant une pièce de titre (dos frotté), Première édition de ce traité qui applique la nouvelle chimie française à l'hydrologie. Notamment, les auteurs donnent, après l'introduction, un tableau de synonymes des anciens et nouveaux termes de chimie, la nouvelle nomenclature chimique de l'Académie des Sciences venant de paraitre entre la rédaction et la publication du présent livre sur les eaux d'Enghien. La nature sulfureuse des eaux d'Enghien fut reconnue en 1766 par l'Abbé Cotte, puis cette nouvelle source fut étudiée par des pharmaciens et médecins, mais non des chimistes. Le présent volume forme donc un ensemble neuf de d'observations et d'analyses, Fourcroy étant, avec Lavoisier, un des principal contributeur au renouveau de la chimie française des années 1780. Comme les auteurs l'indiquent en introduction, "Nous avions à fixer d'une manière plus précise l'action des différents réactifs sur une eau chargée de gaz hépatique. Aucun chimiste ne nous avait précédés dans cette sorte de recherche [.]". Les auteurs expérimentations furent l'usage des réactifs (colorants, acides, sels, substances métalliques, chaux métalliques, savon, spiritueux, etc.), la distillation, l'évaporation et analyse des résidus. En fin de volume, on trouve l'analyse des eaux de Saint-Germain-en-Laye et l'eau de Vaugirard. Intérieur légèrement piqûé. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
