Two vols., 8vo (215 × 135 mm), pp. xxviii, [2, corrections], 507, [1, blank]; xxviii, [2, corrections], 500; 4 folding plates in vol. 1 and 4 folding plates in vol. 2 (the last the fifth plate of vol. 1); occasional spotting and toning to text; vol. 1, small stain to lower edge of pp. 478-481, light dampstaining to edges of the first and final three leaves, occasional chipping to page edges; bookplate of the Duc et Duchesse de Padoue (Padua) to the front paste-down of both volumes, with the signature of the Ernest, second Duc de Padoue to the half-title of the first volume; otherwise very good in contemporary gilt decorative calf-backed marbled boards. First edition.Poisson was appointed professor of 'rational mechanics' (professeur de mécanique rationelle) at the École Polytechnique's newly founded Faculté de Sciences in 1809, having also been appointed astronomer to the Bureau des Longitudes the previous year. Two years later he produced the present work, his most complete exposition of the totality of classical mechanics. The work, written in the style of Laplace and Lagrange, was for a long time a standard work on the subject. In addition to presenting what was then known of mechanics, Poisson also introduced a number of novelties, including the explicit use of momenta, an innovation which influenced later work by Hamilton and Jacobi. The following year he was elected a member of the Académie des sciences.In his preface to the English translation (1842) Henry Hickman Harte (1790-1848) commented that 'the Mechanique of Poisson is the work now in the hands of all who propose to acquire such a knowledge of the principles of mechanics as may qualify and enable them to extend their reading to the more abstruse works of Laplace, LaGrange, and also of Poisson himself.' While the work is in effect an introductory textbook, 'as several analytic operations and integrations are taken for granted by the author', Harte felt it necessary to add detailed notes 'appended to the end of each volume.' (A treatise of mechanics by S. D. Poisson, London, Longman and Co., 1842, p. iii)'This work on mechanics is organized on the pattern of the course taught at the École Polytechnique. However, though it would serve as a textbook, Poisson notes in the Advertisement that it was intended as the introduction to his Traité de Physique mathématique. At the end of volume II is an addition concerning the use of kinetic energy in calculating the movement of machines.' Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 259) Timoshenko cites the second edition, 1833. Dugas discusses Poisson's contributions to mechanics by closely reading a paper from 1809 that was later incorporated into the present work.See: Dugas, René, A history of mechanics, Dover, 1988, pp. 384-389; Timoshenko, Stephen P., History of strength of materials, Dover, 1983, pp. 111-112.Provenance: Ernest Louis Henry Hyacinthe Arrighi de Casanova (1814-1888) was, from 1853, the second Duc de Padoue (Padua), his father having been ennobled by Napoleon I on 19 March 1808.

      John Wyeth, Harrisburgh, PA 1811 - Octavo (5" x 8-1/4") bound in contemporary calf leather recently rebacked retaining the original spine and gilt-stamped burgundy morocco spine label. The second volume of two, but this copy belonged to President James Buchanan and is SIGNED by him, clearly and darkly, on top of the title page. Books signed by Buchanan are hard to come by. Buchanan is the only president from Pennsylvania and the only president who remained a lifelong bachelor. Much speculation has been made about Buchanan's sexual orientation based largely on his close and intimate relationship with William Rufus King (who became Vice President under Franklin Pierce). The two men lived together for 13 years from 1840 until King's death in 1853. They attended events together and were both said to have "effeminate" manners. Contemporaries noted their close connection. Andrew Jackson dubbed them "Miss Nancy" and "Aunt Fancy." The two men's nieces destroyed most of their uncles' correspondence after their deaths. Light to moderate foxing throughout. Very Good [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

There are two &#147;third editions&#148; of this work, one dated 1810 containing 33 pages and 11 plates, and the present 1811 edition containing 55 pages and 14 plates is the best of all the editions.

        Afbeeldingen van de Kleedingen, Zeden en Gewoonten in Holland, Met Den Aanvang Der Negentiende Eeuw.

      Chez E. Maaskamp, Amsterdam 1811 - With 21 hand-colored plates watermarked from 1803 and 1811 (mostly the latter) with the names of Maaskamp and Colnaghi & Co. of London. Plates engraved by Portman after paintings of J. Kuyper. Colas 1681. Hiler 557. The plates stand out among so many others of the same era for their depiction of people doing things. These are truly genre scenes, as opposed to static costume poses, and they thus deliver visual information about aspects of the livelihood,custom and culture of the Dutch, as intended by the book's title, which translates as "Representations of the Costume, Morals and Customs of Holland in the Early 19th Century". While there is some scattered light foxing in the book, the plates themselves are for the most part exceptionally bright and clean. A few leaves have a tight crease now flattened -- the one plate that this affects it does so de minimus-ly and is scarcely worth comment. The full calf has shelfwear evident in the corners and some other scuff marks, with a small strip of surface leather lifted on the rear board. The front gutter shows past separation which now remedied but the crack visually remains apparent the whole way down, with some spots of raw leather showing along this line. Nonetheless the leather remains quite attractive and the defect remaining worth tolerating. But for this flaw the book might be described as fine.

        Le statue e li bassirilievi inventati e scolpiti in marmo dal cavaliere Alberto Thorwaldsen scultore danese incisi e pubblicati da Ferdinando Mori. Tomo 1 [solo pubblicato]. Rami 80.

      - Roma, 1811 [i.e. anni '20 dell'800] in-folio, modesta leg. ottocentesca in mezza tela (consunzioni e mancanze), frontespizio inciso in rame + 80 incisioni calcografiche su 78 tavole: 10 sono incise dai fratelli Riepenhausen, 1 da Francesco Garzoli e le restanti da Ferdinando Mori (tranne 1 non firmata). Le tavole recano una numerazione che non corrisponde all'ordine col quale sono state legate nel volume. Pubblicazione dalla storia assai complicata: fu edita la prima volta nel 1811 (titolo inciso + 21 tavole); nel 1813 Mori acquistò i diritti della pubblicazione e l'opera crebbe, in tre edizioni successive, di 32, 54 e 67 tavole; finalmente, nel 1816, raggiunse il totale di 80 tavole. In ciascuna di queste successive edizioni fu mantenuto il primo front. inciso con la data 1811. Il nostro esemplare appartiene ad un edizione ancora successiva alla prima completa del 1816, poiché sul frontespizio - sempre inciso e sempre datato 1811 - non sono più citati i fratelli Riepenhausen (ma le loro incisioni sono mantenute all'interno del volume) ed è aggiunta la notazione di Tomo I, come se fossero previsti altri volumi (che tuttavia non uscirono). Libro molto raro, che documenta la produzione della bottega romana di Thorvaldsen, il più importante scultore neoclassico dopo Canova: segnalato in un solo esemplare in ICCU. Legatura modesta, ma interno ottimo. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

The note reads:</p><p>Je soussigné en Chirurgien et Chef de l&#39;Armée d&#39;Egypte, l&#39;un des [&#133;] généraux de service de Santé [&#133;] prend la liberté de recom[mander] à la bienveillance de Monsieur le comte de Bergon, Conseiller d&#39;État et Directeur général des Eaux et Forêts, l&#39;objet de la [&#133;] du pétitionnaire. D. J. Larrey.</p><p>Larrey was the greatest military surgeon in history. He invented the "flying ambulance" for removing wounded soldiers from the battlefield, performed some of the first amputations at the hip-joint, gave the first descriptions of trench-foot and the therapeutic effects of maggots on wounds, and invented several surgical operations. He was also the first to observe the contagiousness of trachoma, a disease encountered by Napoleon&#39;s army shortly after its successful invasion of Egypt in 1798. </p>

        A Report of the Case of the King Against Bebb... Bankrupts

      1811. Interesting Treatise on Tax Indebtedness Hughes, T.B. A Report of the Case of the King Against Bebb and Others. Assignees of Castell and Powell, Bankrupts; On an Extent: With Explanatory Notes and an Appendix of Some Cases and Records in Extents Which Have Not Been Before Printed. London: Printed by A. Strahan, 1811. vi, 244 pp. Octavo (8" x 5"). Contemporary calf, blind fillets to boards, lettering piece and blind fillets to spine. Light rubbing, front hinge starting. Offsetting to margins of endleaves, toning to text, internally clean. A well-preserved copy of a scarce title. * Only edition. Abolished in 1947, a writ of extent was a remedy employed by the crown to recover unpaid taxes from a debtor or bankrupt. This book, a combination of treatise and report, examines the nature of these writs through a scholarly account, with notes and a historical appendix, of the important Exchequer case of John Bebb and others, assignees of the bankrupt London banking house of Castell and Powell. Bebb and others, assignees of Castell and Powell, were countersued by the government for the right to assets that would cover payment of bills of exchange drawn by a Newcastle bank against tax-collection funds they were holding on deposit. The drafts had been accepted by the now bankrupt Castell and Powell, who had turned them over to the commissioners of excise as collateral for the Newcastle tax deposits, payable in thirty days. At issue was the right of the Crown to sue a debtor (Castell and Powell) of a tax-owing debtor (the Newcastle bank). Sweet & Maxwell, A Legal Bibliography of the British Commonwealth 2:175.

        Let every Federalist do his Duty, and Massachusetts will yet be Saved!"

      Boston 1811 - Broadside. Boston, April, 1811. Untrimmed with wide margins. At bottom, prints resolutions of a public meeting at Faneuil Hall on March 31, 1811, which threatened resistance against Congress's May, 1810 legislation. With docketing on verso. 1 p., 11 3/4 x 18 3/8 in. Fiery election broadside fanning the flames of Federalist opposition to Democratic-Republican foreign policy during the Jefferson and Madison administrations. In tone if not in substance, this jeremiad against Southern planters is not wholly different from the complaints of Southern fire-eaters against Lincoln and the "black Republicans" 50 years later. It shows the intensity of New England sectionalism a year before "Mr. Madison's War." "The Embargo cost you millions and millions of dollars. It sunk all the property in New England twenty per cent. It ruined and crippled thousands forever. It drove your sailors into foreign employ . You have been robbed of this treasure by Thomas Jefferson." Excerpts"YOU have lost the election of governor. You have elected but nineteen federal Senators. YET YOU ARE THE MAJORITY. You heed not the things which concern your peace, your property, your freedom. plans are laid to take from you the use of the ocean. You are soon to have no commerce but on the land; no fisheries but in your rivers, and ponds. You now obey the commands of the enemy of the human race, BONAPARTE; these commands are sent to you through the proud, tyrannical slave holding PLANTERS of your Southern States Would war, would the loss of your commerce, the loss of your liberties be evils to you? These are at hand. Will you LISTEN? Will you THINK? Will you ACT? .""The policy of your present rulers is that of Jefferson. The planters of the South own SLAVES but no SHIPS. Jefferson spoke the creed of the planters . Jefferson, and his followers are ever sheding tears over the abuses of our neutral rights, the injuries to our commerce, and the wrongs of our sailors. This is to cajole such men as the republicans (as they call themselves) send to Congress, and to blind and cheat their Northern friends. A settlement of our differences with England would have benefited commerce. A treaty was made, but rejected by Jefferson, without ever showing it to Congress. Since that, THREE MINISTERS have been sent to America; but the breach between the United States and England grows wider and wider . The Embargo cost you millions and millions of dollars. It sunk all the property in New England twenty per cent. It ruined and crippled thousands forever. It drove your sailors into foreign employ. . You have been robbed of this treasure by Thomas Jefferson .""On the second of November, Mr. Madison proclaimed, that the French decrees were repealed. THEY WERE NOT THEN, NOR ARE THEY NOW REPEALED. With one single exception, every American ship, that has gone to France, and every one met upon the ocean by French cruizers, have been SEIZED, PLUNDERED, SUNK or BURNT! Mr. MADISON knows all this, and what has he done? ."[docketing on verso in unknown hand:] Morgan Esqr So Brins's[?] [This docket is the subject of ongoing research by our staff.]Historical BackgroundThomas Jefferson won a landslide reelection victory in 1804, defeating Federalist Charles Cotesworth Pinckney 162-14 in the electoral college. However, thanks in large part to the renewal of war between France and Britain in Europe, Jefferson's second term in office was stormy, and less successful, than his first. By 1806, both France and Britain had imposed blockades on the other country. Britain, the stronger sea power, began to seize American cargos suspected of trading with France, and also stepped up its practice of impressment, forcing into service roughly 6,000 American sailors in 1806-1807, on the pretense that they were British deserters. Jefferson and Madison, his Secretary of State, responded with the Embargo of 1807, a ban on all American vessels sailing for foreign ports. (See website for full description)

The interest that his writings aroused in the ancient Scandanavian Tongues directed attention to their literature, He was the first to study the ancient Nordic languages systematically. He disovered the correspondence of the consonant relations between the Indo-European languages, which led Jacob Grimm to formulate the rules underlying the Germanic as well as the the first complete texts of the eddas of Snorri and Saemund and added modernised versions. During his journeys to Russia and Persia he collected valuable Avesta and Pali manuscripts which he gave to the Royal Library in Copenhagen of which he was the librarian, and thereby promoted the study of the Asian branches of the Indo-European family fo languages" (Printing and the Mind of Man).
