        A New Elucidation of Colours...with some Observations on the Accuracy of Sir Isaac Newton.

      London: Richard Taylor and Co. 1809. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 4to (293 x 235 mm). [4], 51 [1] pp. 7 engraved plates, of which 5 hand-coloured by the author. 20th century half calf over older marbled boards. Internally little bowned, some foxing (first and final leaves stronger), library stamps (those to plates within plate mark). Provenance: Birm Library, Birmingham. ----Babson 162; Wallis 229; Honeyman 2876. - At the beginning of the 19th century, James Sowerby (1757-1822), already known as author of books on botany, conchology and mineralogy, introduced a colour system, which he dedicated to "the great Isaac Newton." Sowerby set himself two tasks with this work: firstly, he wished to re-emphasise the significance of brightness and darkness, which after Newton had "fallen into obscurity"; and, secondly, he wanted to clarify the difference which exists between colours. Johann Heinrich Lambert had already pointed out that the colours of light and the colours of materials behave in a different way when mixed. Sowerby, in his system, assumed the existence of three basic colours: red, yellow and blue. Sowerby's text describes the optical mixtures which result when narrow and tightly packed strips of primary colour are applied to paper. The sketches included in his work exemplify the three parts which Sowerby's theory rests on and express the stabilising continuity which can exist between them. Incidentally, Sowerby's attempt to transform Newton's seven primary colours into three materially renderable basic colours attracted the attention of the English painter William Turner (the two were, in fact, acquainted). Later, in about 1820, Turner followed the painter Otto Runge in trying to assimilate the system of the three colours red, yellow and blue into a diurnal pattern (for which there is more than just one possibility, as was soon apparent). Sowerby's system originated at the same time as Thomas Young (1773-1829) submitted his theory stating that the eye generates all colours by combining only three wavelengths. This "Theory of Trichromatic Vision" is based on the primary additive colours red, green and blue (N. Silvestrini, U. Baumann & Stromer, IdeaColour, Zürich, 1994; see also www.colorsystem.com). Very Good.

        Observations on madness and melancholy including practical remarks on those diseases; together with cases: and an account of the morbid appearances on dissection...The second edition considerably enlarged

      London, Printed for J. Callow, 1809, in 8°, de VIII-345pp. 3ff. de cat. éditeur, une figure à pl. page, cart. papier marbré moderne genre ancien, rares rousseurs, cachet de bibliothèque médicale. Bon exemplaire. Seconde édition très augmentée, la meilleure, de ce livre pionnier dans l'histoire de la psychiatrie anglaise. John Haslam (1764-1844) was an Apothecary at Bethlem Hospital (known as Bedlam), beeing the oldest, largest and best-known asylum for the insane. He was one of the most knowledgeable practitioners in his field, and distinguished himself in private practice by his prudent treatment of the insane. He was more careful than any of his predecessors in the investigation of mental diseases, and did some very accurate descriptions. In this second edition of his work on "insanity" he included a detailed description of a case which is one of the earliest and clearest recording of what would be later called schizophrenia. He held that melancholia and mania were two aspects of a single disease, and describes 37 illustrative cases. His observations contains his records of autopsies performed on insane patients, including what may be the first description of syphilis in the brain. Haslam's book dominated English psychiatry for a generation and was frequently cited by Dr. Pinel. ¶ Garrison-Morton n°4794 " Haslam was among the first to describe general paralysis..." - Hunter & Macalpine, p.632

Mineralogical Record Library (Curtis Schuh's Bibl. of Mineralogy) -FIRST EDITION. "Probably written as a companion textbook to the mineralogical lectures delivered by the author at Oxford, Outlines of Mineralogy is a derivative work that reflects the state of mineralogy during the first decade of the nineteenth century. It is principally based upon the earlier mineralogical writings of Richard Kirwan and René Just Haüy. For example, the system of classification that divides the mineral species has been lifted from Kirwan and uses the divisions of Earthy, Saline, Inflammable and Metallic Substances. An appendix handles rocks and other aggregates. The crystallographical information scattered through out is derived from Haüy" (Mineralogical Record Online Lib.). Kidd was a professor or chemistry at Oxford who also lectured on mineralogy and geology. He published two textbooks on the subject, viz. the Outlines in 1809 and A Geological Essay in 1815 (Ward & Carozzi 1254). Near Fine.

FIRST EDITION OF LAMARCK'S MOST COMPLETE PRESENTATION OF HIS THEORY OF EVOLUTION - "a classic in the literature of evolutionary theory" (PMM). The first two parts of Philosophie zoologique restate and elaborate upon Lamarck's theory of evolution (originally posited in his Recherches sur l'organisation des corps vivans, Paris, 1802), which attributes evolution to two factors: the tendency of species toward increasing complexity, and the influence of the environment, which he considered responsible for these variations from the norm. "The third part contains the most important additions to the earlier theories. In this section Lamarck deals in great detail with the problem of a physical explanation for the emergence of higher mental facilities ... Lamarck's breakthrough was tying a progressive development of higher mental facilities in a physical way to structural development of the nervous system ... Higher mental faculties could emerge precisely because they were a product of increased structural complexity ... For Lamarck one of the most important events in the evolutionary process was the development of the nervous system, particularly the brain, because at that point animals began to form ideas and control their movements" (DSB).

FIRST EDITION of Gauss' important work in which he developed his methods of orbit calculations and which he put to good practical use. In January 1801 G. Piazzi had briefly observed and lost a new planet. During the rest of that year the astronomers vainly tried to relocate it. In September, as his [Gauss'] Disquisitiones was coming off the press, Gauss decided to take up the challenge. To it he applied both a more accurate orbit theory (based on the ellipse rather than the circular approximation) and improved numerical methods (based on least squares). By December the task was done, and Ceres was soon found in the predicted position. This extraordinary feat of locating a tiny, distant heavenly body from seemingly insufficient information appeared to be almost superhuman, especially since Gauss did not reveal his methods. With the Disquisitiones it established his reputation as a mathematical and scientific genius of the first order. The decade that began so auspiciously with the Disquisitiones and Ceres was decisive for Gauss. (...) It ended with Theoria motus corporum coelestium in sectionibus conicis solem ambientium (1809), in which Gauss systematically developed his methods of orbit calculation, including the theory and use of least squares." (DSB). Very Good.

Le colonel Grobert (1757-181?) fut tout à la fois militaire, homme de lettres et inventeur. Son ouvrage sur la scénographie réunit son intérêt pour le théâtre en soit (il est notamment l'auteur d'une pièce sur la Bataille des Pyramides) et ses dispositions en mécanique - un chapitre entier est consacré au machines qui permettent la mobilité des décors.

        ALS from Keswick, Dec. 5, 1809, to Ebenezer Elliott, "The Corn Law Rhymer".

      1809 62 lines over three sides of folded quarto leaf, with integral address; several old, unobtrusive folds, one small tear at inner margin repaired with archival tape, damp stain in upper inner margin, sl. affecting text.An extensive letter in which Southey writes to Elliott in response to a request for advice on his poetic endeavours. The senior poet has evidently been sent a manuscript by Elliott, and informs him it will be returned 'by coach (as a cheaper conveyance than the post from hence) ... [with] a copy of my best poem by way of ballast, just to give your papers bulk enough for security'. Southey discusses the content of the manuscript, informing Elliott 'Your plan obviates many of the faults in the Soldier's Love & adds to it some striking things'. He advises, however, that Elliott 'lay this poem by, for experience has taught me that in literary architecture it is better to build anew than to alter & repair upon an old foundation'. The subject of the poem is one that interests him, and even seems to have been one that he considered utilising himself, though a word with a sage head eventually convinced him otherwise: 'I have talked upon that story with Wordsworth, but the difficulties appeared to outweigh the advantages, splendid as they are at first sight.' As an alternative topic, Southey advises that Elliott consult Sharon Turner's History of the Anglo Saxons

        A Collection of Farces and Other Afterpieces...

      London: Longman, 1809. Seven volumes, duodecimo, each with a portrait frontispiece, contemporary half calf, gilt spines. Collection of late eighteenth and early nineteenth century popular plays, some racy and originating on the Continent. As the full title boasts, the plays were performed at the theatres Royal, Drury-Lane, Covent-Garden and Hay-Market, and printed under authority from the managers of the prompt books. Many are works by the editor, thespian and writer Elizabeth Inchbald (née Simpson 1753-1821), who was responsible for translation of the remainder. Although Elizabeth enjoyed little success as a stage actress, she became a well-established dramatist who attempted (with varying degrees of success) to use the stage as a platform for her radical and libertarian political views. Understandably, during the last decade of the eighteenth centuries, some theatre managers were unwilling to stage her plays due in the strained political climate of the time. The portrait frontispieces include Thomas and Charles Dibdin, James Cobb, John Milton and Samuel Foote. Some foxing and offsetting, last volume water stained, but very good overall.

        Voyage autour du Monde, pendant les années 1790, 1791, et 1792... auquel on a joint des recherches sur les Terres Australes de Drake, et un examen critique du voyage de Roggeween...

      Paris: Courcier, 1809. Five volumes, octavo, and a quarto atlas; contemporary French quarter calf and papered boards, flat spines banded in gilt with double orange labels, a beautiful set. Fleurieu's narrative of the voyage of the Solide under the command of Etienne Marchand, the first French commercial voyage to the Northwest coast of America, and the second French circumnavigation (some twenty-five years after Bougainville's). Lada-Mocarski commends this book as "a very important and authoritative work for the history of the Northwest coast".Returning from Bengal in 1788, Marchand had come across the voyager Portlock who told him of the lucrative fur trade between the Northwest coast and China. 'The trading firm of Baux in Marseille underwrote a commercial expedition and purchased and fitted out the copper-sheathed ship Solide, which sailed in December 1790 for the Pacific via Cape Horn. At the Marquesas, Marchand took possession of two islands, Uapou and Nukuhiva (which he named Ile Baux), not knowing of Ingraham's visit on the Hope two months earlier... At the Northwest coast he obtained a large cargo of furs, sailed south to Hawaii, through the Marianas, and reached Macao... This was a successful voyage but a commercial failure. Marchand was unable to sell his furs, and upon his return to France they were impounded by a revolutionary faction and eventually perished. The firm of Baux ultimately lost two-thirds of its capital in the venture... ' (Forbes).Nevertheless, Marchand had proved that in times of peace, the French could compete successfully in the Pacific trade. As Marchand died in 1793, the work was actually written by Count Charles Pierre Fleurieu, himself an explorer. Fleurieu was much more than just an editor here: he put the narrative together from the logbooks of the ship's surgeon Claude Roblet, and Prosper Chanal, the second-in-command. Using these as a foundation he brought together what O'Reilly and Reitman describe as 'un vaste travail de compilation, où les observations géographiques, nautiques, ethnographiques et zoologiques sont confrontées avec celles des voyages espagnols (Mendaña, Quiros), hollandais (Roggeween), anglais et américains (Cook, Ingraham, Roberts, Hergest)... '. As a result the book includes a good account of discoveries along the American coast, from Cortes in 1537 to Malaspina in 1790, including records of Drake, Juan de Fuca, Cook, La Pérouse, Meares, Colnett, Portlock and Dixon. Considerable text is devoted to descriptions of natural history specimens collected en route. The final volume contains a critical analysis of Roggeveen's voyage, and the engraved charts include five of Alaska and the Northwest coast, four of Marquesan interest and one of Hawaii, while the China Sea chart contains important corrections.The book was published in two versions in Paris in 1798-1800; the octavo format version was reissued in the form offered here, with the simple substitution of a new title-page (Forbes cites a re-issue of the quarto rather than the octavo version, perhaps in error).

        Recherches sur le mouvement des ondes.

      Paris, Didot, 1809. ____ Première édition. "Depuis longtemps j'avais cru remarquer que le mouvement des ondes se faisait sentir à des profondeurs très considérables, tandis qu'on était généralement persuadé qu'il n'agissait effectivement qu'à quelques mètres de la superficie de la mer. [...] Impatient de vérifier mes observations, [...] je me livrais à des expériences suivies, qui toutes me confirmèrent dans mon opinion." Selon Prony, les phénomènes rapportés ne peuvent s'expliquer par les principes connus de la mécanique des fluides, mais "les raisons et expériences sur lesquelles M. Bremontier appuie son opinion, sont d'un grand poids." Les observations et expériences de Bremontier ont été faites dans la rade Saint-Jean de Luz, l'embouchure de l'Adour, le port de Bordeaux... Nicolas Brémontier (1738-1809), inspecteur des Ponts-et-Chaussées, est l'auteur d'un "Mémoire sur les Dunes" des Landes, qu'il avait été chargé de fixer par des plantations de forêts.

        Genera crustaceorum et insectorum, secundum ordinem naturalem in familias disposita, iconibus exemplisque, plurimis explicata. I-IV.

      Paris and Strasbourg: A. Koening, 1806-1809. Four volumes, octavo, 12 plates and 2 folding tables; in contemporary marbled paper boards with spine labels, old shelf markers to spine. First edition. Pierre André Latreille (1762-1833) had entered the Paris Museum in 1799, and became Professor of Entomology on the death of Lamarck. He went on to publish a great number of important entomological books and articles, including several relating to other French voyages to the Pacific, and contributing the volume on insects to Cuvier's revolutionary Règne Animal of 1817. A memoir of Latreille, with a portrait, was published in Sir William Jardine's Naturalist's Library for 1841.This is one of Latreille's most significant works: while Latreille praised Cuvier for having founded zoological classification on comparative anatomy, he based his own classification work primarily on the consideration of external characters. Nonetheless, as one of his successors remarked more than half a century after the appearance of the 'Genera', the work offered "such an exact exposition of the characters of the insects, arachnids, and crustaceans, and nearly always such a just appreciation of the natural affinities of these animals, that the most modern researches only added rectifications of a second order" (DSB VIII, p. 48). Moderate foxing.
