        Catalogue des Livres de M. A.H. Anquetil-Duperron; Voyageur aux Grandes Indes, Interprète de France pour les Langues Orientales

      dont la vente se fera...le mardi 2 vendémiaire an 14 (24 septembre 1805), et jours suivans. 2 p.l., viii, 236 pp. 8vo, attractive antique calf, double gilt fillet round sides, flat spine gilt, uncut. Paris: veuve Tilliard et Fils, 1805. The rare sale catalogue of the library, rich in oriental books and manuscripts, of Anquetil-Duperron (1731-1805), French orientalist and brother of the historian Pierre Anquetil. Abraham Hyacinthe had a fascinating early life: while unsuccessfully studying for the priesthood in Paris and Utrecht, he developed a passion for Hebrew, Arabic, Persian and other languages of the East. He travelled to India as a private soldier in 1754 in order to search for the works of Zoroaster. Granted free passage, he learned modern Persian in Pondicherry and Sanskrit at Chandernagore. When war broke out between France and England, Anquetil-Duperron travelled widely throughout India on foot, learning further languages and studying the antiquities and sacred laws of the Hindus. He returned to Europe in an English vessel, ultimately arriving in Paris in 1762 with 180 oriental manuscripts. He devoted many of the following years to scholarship, editing and publishing many important oriental texts. The French Revolution seems to have greatly affected him: during that period he abandoned society and lived in voluntary poverty on a few pence a day. A fine copy. 1600 lots and priced throughout in a contemporary hand. From the library of Jean Viardot. ❧ Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 408-"Ce catalogue est curieux, surtout pour les livres en langues étrangeres." Grolier Club, Printed Catalogues of French Books Auctions...1643-1830, 458. Peignot, p. 77. .

        Graphic and Descriptive Tour of the University of Oxford, &c., A

      1805. first edition. Some of the Finest Aquatint Plates in Existence"The Rarest of All Nattes SuitesOnly One Copy at Auction Since 1923NATTES, John Claude. A Graphic and Descriptive Tour of the University of Oxford, &c. London: Published by James Cundee, [1805].First edition, complete. Large folio (21 1/2 x 13 3/4 inches; 545 x 348 mm.). 8; 9-16 pp. Engraved title with tinted aquatint vignette, four tinted aquatint plates engraved by Merigot, one engraved by Pugin Wrappers expertly renewed to style with original brown front printed wrappers laid down. Resewn. Some minor foxing and edge browning. Housed together in a blue cloth clamshell case. An excellent copy. Extremely scarce; the rarest of Nattes three suites (Views of Bath; Versailles, Paris, et Saint Denis). ABPC, which began indexing auction results in 1923, records only copy falling under the hammer, in 1992. OCLC/KVK record only one copy in institutional holdings worldwide.Tooley notes this dearly rare suite in color but not uncolored; this copy is thus an unrecorded variant of an album scarcely seen in any format. "Some of the finest aquatint plates in existence are those done from the drawings of John Claude Nattes...Nattes [1765-1839], was a topographical draughtsman who travelled and made sketches for illustrated works. He was one of the foundation members of the Water Colour Society...There is a very rare work entitled Oxford Deliniated; a Graphic and Descriptive Tour of the University of Oxford...of which only two parts appeared, though twenty-five were advertised...Had it been completed it must have ranked among the finest of publications with coloured plates..." (Prideaux, p. 274)."[The work of Nattes]... provides a vast source of material of great value to the researcher of pre-Victorian topography and social history. The main collections of his work are in the British Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum, and the Guildhall Library, London; the print room at Windsor Castle; the Bodleian Library, Oxford; and the National Library of Scotland.The Plates:1. Title vignette, Radcliff Library, from Exeter College Terrace.2. West Entrance into Christ Church College, taken from Pembroke Lane.3. Merton Church, from the Grove.4. Entrance into Oxford from the London Road. (Pugin). 5. St. Peters in the East. 6. Merton Tower, taken from Magpie Lane (on p. 6 of the text). Abbey, Scenery, 274 , 275. Tooley 341. Prideaux, p. 274.

After his death several artists made the originals. The engravings were executed by Carl Wilhelm Venus and Johan Gustaf Ruckman (a few by Palmstruch). The plates were coloured by women colourists, specially trained for the work. The colouring has a wonderful "light" nordic quality. The text was authored by Conrad Quensel, Olof Swartz and Göran Wahlenberg. "Svensk Botanik" is the most famous work on botany ever published in Sweden and of the highest quality

        Vermischte Nachrichten.Weimar: Verlage des Industrie-Comptoirs, 1799. First edition.

      An interesting letter by Gauss in regard to the famous priority dispute between him and Legendre on the method of least squares. Stephen Stigler, Statistics on the Table, Chapter 17: "The method of least squares is the automobile of modern statistical analysis: despite its limitations, occasional accidents, and incidental pollution, this method and its numerous variations, extensions, and related conveyances carry the bulk of statistical analysis, and are known and valued by nearly all. But there has been some dispute, historically, as to who is the Henry Ford of statistics. Adrien Marie Legendre published the method in 1805, an American Robert Adrain, published the method in late 1808, and Carl Friedrich Gauss published the method in 1809. Legendre appears to have discovered the method in early 1805, and Robert Adrain may have 'discovered' it in Legendre's 1805 book ..., but in 1809 Gauss had the temerity to claim that he had been using the method since 1795, and one of the most famous priority disputes in the history of science was off and running. ... Four principle pieces of evidence that Gauss was the method's earliest discoverer have been presented, either by Gauss or in his behalf by his often reverential followers: (1) Gauss's word in 1806 and later that he had used the method since 1795 ... (2) A cryptic entry in Gauss's mathematical diary, dated June 1798... (3) Gauss's claim that he had told other astronomers, notably Olbers, Lindenau, and von Zach, about the method prior to 1805. (4) A letter of Gauss's that was published in 1799 in 'Allgemeine Geographische Ephemeriden' which alludes to 'meine Methode' [the offered volume]". The following translation of the complete letter (with footnotes by von Zach, the editor) are quoted from Plackett: The Discovery of the Method of Least Squares, Biometrika, Vol. 59, 1972, pp. 239-251: </br></br> "Allow me to point out a printer's error in the July issue of the A.G.E. Pages XXXV of the introduction in the account of the arc between the Panthéon and Évaux, must read 76145.74 instead of 76545.74. The sum is correct and the error cannot be in any other place.* I disovered this error when I applied my method, a specimen of which I have given you,&dagger; to determine the ellipse simply from these four measured arcs, and found the ellipticity to be 1/150; after correction of that error I found 1/187, and 2565006 units of length in the whole quadrant (namely without consideration of the Degree in Peru). The difference between 1/150 and 1/187 is certainly not important in this case, because the end-points lie too close together. Brunswick, 24 Aug. 1799. C. F. Gauss. </br></br> * This printers error is confirmed, and may also be recognized by the decimal degree figure set beside it, 2<sup>D</sup>.66868 - v.Z. </br></br> &dagger; Here at another time - v.Z." </br></br> Unfortunately von Zach appears never to have published the details of Gauss's method as promised in his foot note. (See Stigler: Statistics on the Table, pp.320-331 for a detailed discussion of this letter).. In: 'Allgemeine Geographische Ephemeriden', Vol. 4, p. 378. The whole volume offered: (4), XL, 575, (1:blank) pp. and 5 plates (not accompanying the Gauss letter). 8vo. Contemporary boards. Title page with old library stamp. Some very light sporring throughout - in all a very nice copy.

        Etude de trois sortes d'Oeillets [Pl. 38]

      Paris: Vilquin, 1805. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand by Ruotte. 21 1/4 x 14 inches. An exquisite plate of a bouquet of variously-coloured carnations from arguably the most beautiful botanical work ever produced: "a work of outstanding importance and interest". Contemporary with the work of Redouté, 'Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits' is one of the earliest examples of stipple engraved and colour- printed botanical illustration. Published in 12 cahiers (or parts) of 4 plates each, the work was compiled to assist designers of porcelain and fabric, with the plates often showing flowers grouped together, usually matched according to their flowering season.The greatest collection of flower books to be sold at auction in the 20th century was the de Belder collection, sold by Sotheby's in 1987. The catalogue was intended as a true reflection of the uniqueness of the collection, and the cover illustration selected to represent the best of the best was an image from Prevost's 'Collection des Fleurs et des Fruits'.Dunthorne describes it as, "a work of outstanding importance and interest...issued for the specific purpose of maintaining the great French tradition for excellence of design and draughtsmanship. Perhaps no other prints are more worthy of carrying on the tradition of Jean Baptiste and van Spaendonck than these fine examples of Prévost. Whether bouquets or sprays of flowers or fruit, they possess a splendour and freshness amounting almost to fragrance, which is largely due to the quality of the colour printing" (Dunthorne, p. 33). Cf. Dunthorne p. 229; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p. 127; cf. Nissen BBI 1568; cf. Pritzel 7332; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8319.
