        FLORE PARISIENNE Contenant la Description des Plantes qui Croissent Naturellement aux Environs de Paris

      Paris: F. Schoell, 1813. The publication history of this work is difficult to determine though it would appear to have been published between 1808-1813 and then discontinued. It also seemed to have later assumed the name ‘Flora Parisiensis’. This copy includes the half-title page, title page [Flore Parisienne] followed by 32 pages of text and 44 leaves of fine uncoloured stipple-engraved plates. This copy includes the original information slip which states "Les neuf premiers Livraisons renfermeront Les Nos 1-5, 7-10, 13,15, 17-20, 22-26, 28-32, 34, 35, 37-41, 45-53, 59, 61, 68 des Planches. Les Nos. 6,11,12,16, 21 formeront la dixieme Livraison. Les Nos. 27, 33, 36, 42, 43 la onzieme. Les Nos. 44 54, 55, 56, 57 la douzieme." translated thus. " The first nine Deliveries [parts] will contain the Nos 1-5, 7-10, 13, 15, 17-20, 22-26, 28-32, 34, 35, 37-41, 45-53, 59, 61, 68 of the plates. The nos. 6, 11, 12, 16, 21 will form the tenth Part. The nos. 27, 33, 36, 42,43 the eleventh. The nos. 44 54, 55, 56, 57 the twelfth." It is our understanding that the later parts were never published - in fact the literature states that only 8 parts were published but the original publication slip here would suggest that in fact it was 9 parts. The number of plates present is 44 which conforms with the above numbers as far as the 9th part and therefore has the full complement of plates at least in this form (Books at auction under the title Flora Parisiensis have stated 48 plates and include plate numbers 74-75, which are not mentioned on the publication slip here). The text finishes at page 32 and only goes up to plate 36 so is probably incomplete. This copy is unbound and housed in an old portfolio, the leaves are uncut and the paper bright and and fresh without foxing, a few leaves slightly worn at the edges, plate 68 is torn and creased at the bottom edge in several places but not affecting the plate mark. A very good copy. Seemingly very scarce. We would be pleased to have this bound on your behalf should you wish - please contact us for details.. First Edition. Hardback. Very Good/No DJ. Elephant Folio.

        Autograph letter signed ("Mr. Shelley." in the third person) to Christopher John Pike

      41 Skinner Street, Snow Hill, n.d., but probably August, 1813. One page, 12mo, with Shelley's red wax seal, red cloth portfolio. Provenance: A. Edward Newton (his sale Parke-Bernet, pt III, 30 October 1941, lot 247; bookplate in portfolio); Roger H. West (bookplate in portfolio). Excellent condition, the seal intact. Shelley writes in the third person: "Mr. Shelley requests that Mr. Pike would give the Bearer the copy of the Settlement in his possession. Mr. S. will return it in the course of the week." Kenneth Neill Cameron provides the most accurate dating for this letter in Shelley and His Circle, vol. III, pp. 244–48. This letter and one other (probably written to Shelley's lawyer, G. B. Ballachey) are the only ones to be known to have been written by Shelley from William Godwin's house, 41 Skinner Street, Snow Hill, in London. The probable date for both letters is 18–19 August 1813, the only two days when Shelley was at Godwin's house and was actively involved in procuring the 1791 settlement of the Shelley family estates as part of his efforts to raise post obit money for the financially strapped Godwin (see also James Bieri, Percy Bysshe Shelley, 2004, vol. I, pp. 300, 340). Shelley had just achieved his legal majority, having turned 21 on 4 August 1813. Christopher John Pike was a solicitor who Shelley and his wife later met at Ballachey's office on 14 September 1814 when another post obit sale was taking place. At this time, however, after Shelley's July 1814 elopement with Mary Godwin (he was married to Harriet Westbrook), both were banned by Godwin from entering his home.

        Petit almanach des Dames, pour l’an 181[4]

      Paris:: Rosa,, [1813]. 18mo. 18mo (124 x 76 mm). [8] leaves, 186 pp., [1 blank leaf]. Half-title, engraved title with vignette by Delignon after Guido Reni, 6 engraved plates by & after various artists, each followed by a leaf of letterpress explanation. In title, last digit of date 1814 supplied in ms. Printed on wove paper. Some minor soiling; binding edges rubbed, one or two small scrapes to sides. Contemporary gold-tooled calf, sides with vine roll border enclosing large central field of all-over vermiculé tooling bordered by a hatched fillet with tiny disks at corners, smooth spine in compartments with rosettes and butterfly tools, gilt edges.***& & A periodical publication for women, in a rare vermiculé binding by the publisher-bookbinder Rosa. Issued from 1811 to 1832, the Almanach des Dames featured poems and (occasionally) prose works largely by female writers, and illustrations thought to appeal to a female readership, often after women artists. The 1814 issue contains poems by dozens of different poets and poetasters, from well-known writers including Madame Dufresnoy, Fanny de Beauharnais, and Madame de Genlis, to obscure contributors like Mme. Combes, Mme. Des Roches, Mme. Éléanore de Labouisse, the late Mme Bourdic-Viot, M. de Verneuil, M. Hyacinth, etc. The engravings in classical subjects reproduce paintings by the celebrated Swiss artist Angelica Kauffman (1741-1807) and the Parisian genre painter Jeanne-Elisabeth Chaudet (née Gabiou, 1767-1832), as well as Guido Reni, Carracci, Giulio Romano and Joseph Franque. In a concluding note to the reader, the publisher invites contributions and notes that they must be received by the middle of the year, since a large number of copies must be bound, and summer is more propitious to bookbinding. Most copies, according to Grand-Carteret, were bound in calf; a few were in paper- or silk-covered boards. Copies printed on papier vélin, like this one, were the most expensive and presumably the most elegantly bound. & & A German by birth, possibly of Spanish origin, Frédéric-Guillaume Rosa (1760?-1832) registered in Paris in 1812 as a "bookseller-bookbinder." He specialized in Spanish books and in "calendars, almanacs and small gift books" (Ramsden). The sinuous vermiculé décor used here, produced with special rolls, is usually associated with François Bozérian jeune, with whom Rosa may have trained. Another, plainer vermiculé binding by Rosa is held by the British Library and reproduced in their online Database of Bookbindings. Grand-Carteret 1602. Cf. Ramsden, p. 180; Fléty, p. 154. &

        The Voyages of Captain James Cook Round the World

      London,: Sherwood, Neely and Jones, 1813.. Duodecimo, seven volumes bound in five, with portrait frontispiece of Cook, two folding maps and 29 folding plates; a few plates a little chipped and creased; a very good set in a handsome modern binding of half-calf gilt. A really attractive set of Captain Cook's collected voyages in an elegant binding by Morrell. This scarce edition is an abridgement of the first, second and third voyage accounts edited from the official versions authorised by the Admiralty.This was one of two contemporary editions made from surplus sheets and plates from the volumes relating to Cook's voyages which first appeared in Mavor's General collection of voyages (1809-1810). Both versions follow the same organization as Mavor, but each was issued with new title-pages. 'With regard to the correct number of plates found in each volume, this work is a bibliographic riddle... the key numbers for the plates are sometimes correct for this issue and sometimes evidently meant for the earlier series. The result is that the binder has frequently placed plates in the wrong position, or even in the wrong volumes' (Forbes, in the Hawaiian National Bibliography, of the 1809 version). The present copy corresponds exactly with Forbes' collation, a testament to the 'bibliographic riddle' surrounding these books.The set is scarce with Beddie locating copies only in the Mitchell and National Libraries. Forbes adds another in a private collection.Beddie, 78; Forbes, 'Hawaiian National Bibliography', 431.

        Original Ink Press Letter by John Quincy Adams, Addressed to an Arctic Explorer or Whaler

      London, 1813. Original Ink press copy of autograph letter by John Quincy Adams. Single-leaf unsized tissue, approximately 21cm x 11cm, with 9 lines printed ink text. Very good condition. At the time of this letter, John Quincy Adams was the first United States Minister to Russia, a post which he held from 1809-1814, and during which he resided two years in Russia. Though relations with Russia was his priority, the War of 1812 demanded his attention to foreign relations between the US and Britain. Fascinating letter by John Quincy Adams, in a seldom seen printing format, addresses a pertinent foreign relations issue, and part cause of the War of 1812. Evidently addressed to an arctic explorer or whaler who has just returned from a voyage, and whom is also concerned for his fellow navigator, this document pertains to the case of a certain American sailor who was impressed into the British Navy, but instead of being put into service, was held captive as a prisoner of war of the English Admiralty for six years or more. The letter reads: "The note which you addressed to the Sous-Intendent, upon the impressment of John Sweatland was perfectly proper. At my request Mr. Beasley also demanded his release, by a note to the Admiralty here. I hope it has been affected and if not, I request you would have the goodness to give me notice of it, and I will take further steps to obtain his liberation." "I congratulate you upon your arrival from the North Pole to the temperate zone, where I hope you will find the magnet equally and still more powerfully attractive to the needle of American commerce." "I am with high consideration, Dear Sir, your very humble and obedient servant, John Quincy Adams" End letter. The note is a copy produced on a "letter copying press," an early method of mechanical reproduction invented by James Watt in the 1780s. The letter copying press became quite popular in America. George Washington, James Madison, and Thomas Jefferson were all enthusiastic practitioners, and Benjamin Franklin boasted that he could get three good copies out of it instead of the usual one. The method involved laying a dampened piece of unsized tissue over a fresh document written out in a prescribed ink, and sandwiching the two sheets into a table-top press. The ink adhered to the tissue, producing a readable copy. Ink press copies were early on considered legal representation of original documents. Reuben G. Beasley, who is mentioned in the letter, was an agent to the United States, in England. He was busily engaged in the release of American sailors, such as in this case. Beasley's tireless petition "for the immediate and complete release" of a certain American sailor being held by the British, and the "discharge from his Britannic Majesty's service" would go on from March 1813 to at least October of that year, to no avail. In this process multitudinous correspondence and documentation was passed to and fro between himself, James Monroe who was then Secretary of War under President James Madison, (later 5th US president), Second Secretary to the Admiralty Sir John Barrow, the Transport Board, and the Lords Commissioners of the British Admiralty. Among other things, documented proof was required to show that sailor was indeed an American, born in Boston, Massachusetts The captive was Jonathan Bigelow, an American seaman who was impressed into British Naval service in 1807, and was assigned to the HMS Cornelia, although he was held captive instead for six years prior to Beasley's overture. The Niles Weekly Register, a historic Baltimore newspaper, published details of this plight on Saturday, July 15, 1815. The American State Papers... of the Congress of the United States, Part 1, Volume 3, published in 1832, contains much of the correspondences in full. . Signed.

        Bibliotheca Stanleiana. A Splendid Selection of Rare and Fine Books, from the Distinguished Library of Colonel Stanley. The Selection contains all his rare Italian and Spanish Poetry, Novels and Romances; an extraordinary Collection of Voyages and Travels,...all the old Chronicles...Splendid Books of Natural History

      History...the Books will be sold by Auction by R.H. Evans...on Friday the 30th of April, and Seven Following Days. 3 p.l., 71, [1] pp. 8vo, attractive antique half-diced russia & marbled boards, spine gilt, outer & lower edges uncut. London: 1813. Thomas Stanley (1749-1818), "was a book-lover possessing more knowledge of the contents of his library than many of those who were his contemporaries and juniors. It is refreshing to read the notes in the catalogue of his sale; evidently written by himself, when one has become tired of seeing over and over again the stereotyped inanities of most auction-catalogues. Colonel Stanley lived at a time when Italian literature was in vogue; Don Bowle was an elder contemporary whose example led Mr. Croft and Colonel Stanley to make acquaintance with Castilian books. Many works in the languages of the two peninsulas gave a certain distinction to the small but choice library of Colonel Stanley."-Quaritch, Dictionary, p. 271. This was one of the fine libraries which came onto the market as a result of the bibliomania which was so evident at the Roxburghe sale in 1812. Stanley's library made the very large sum of 8232 pounds. 1136 lots, ruled in red and priced throughout with buyers' names. Heber was a major purchaser at this sale. The first edition of both volumes of Don Quixote made 42 pounds and was purchased by the Duke of Devonshire. Fine copy. ❧ Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, cols. 584-85.

        Essai sur une Nouvelle Methode de Signaux

      “De jour et de Nuit, presente a Viconte de Marigny... Vice Admiral, Commandant de la Marine au Port de Brest.” A beautifully penned presentation of a new method of signals with an explanatory introduction and complete “tableaux de signaux” each charted with combinations of flags representing various vocabularies. The 97 pages of text display 10 times 10 possibilities of flags to create the 100 word vocabulary on each page. The introduction has a small chart with 24 hand colored flags, each identified by a number which is later used in the combinations of flags. In his introduction the author of this original work speaks of other systems of signaling that were in existence prior to 1813, and we assume the manuscript dates from that era. Bound in original calf over boards. A lovely manuscript.

        Théorie des fonctions analytiques, contenant les Principes du Calcul différentiel, dégagés de toute considération d'infiniment petits, dìévanouissans, de limites et de fluxions, et réduits à l'analyse algébrique des quantités finies. Nouvelle édition.

      Paris, M.me V.e Courcier, 1813. 1813 In-4° (265x206mm), pp. XI, (1) di errata, 383, legatura coeva m. pelle marmorizzata. Titolo in oro su tassello rosso al dorso. Esemplare assai bello, salvo qualche lieve fioritura. Seconda edizione, riveduta e aumentata, rara, del grande trattato di Lagrange sulle funzioni analitiche, stampato per la prima volta nel 1797 e destinato ad avere larghissima influenza in tutta la ricerca matematica ottocentesca e a condizionare in profondo le analisi di matematici come Cauchy, Jacobi, Weierstrass. "Cette seconde edition a plusieurs avantages sur la premiere. Elle est plus correcte ; on a mis plus d"ordre dans les matieres... Enfin on y a fait differentes additions dont les principales se trouvent dans le chapitre XIV de la seconde partie et dans le chapitre V de la troisieme". (Avertissement). "In this book, Lagrange intended to show that power series expansions are sufficient to provide differential calculus with a solid foundation. Today mathematicians are partially returning to this conception in treating the formal calculus of series. As early as 1812, however J.M.H. Wronski objected to Lagrange's claims. The subsequent opposition of Cauchy was more effective. Nevertheless, Lagrange's point of view could not be totally neglected. Completed by convergence considerations, it dominated the study of the functions of a complex variable throughout the nineteenth century". (DSB, VII, p. 570) Il Lagrange (Torino, 1736-Parigi, 1813), fra i matematici più insigni del suo tempo, Professore prima alla Scuola d'Artiglieria di Torino, poi, dal 1766, Direttore dell'Accademia delle Scienze di Berlino. In seguito insegnò a Parigi, alla Sorbona e alla Scuola Politecnica e fu membro dell'Institut de France e del Bureau des Longitudes, venendo anche insignito della Légion d'Honneur.

Paris: Crochard, 1813. 203 x 125 mm. Quarter morocco, marbled boards in period style. Light toning and foxing, otherwise fine. First Separate Editions. No. (1) is the very rare offprint of Magendie?s classic description of the physiology of vomiting (G-M 985), still consulted by modern physiologists and mentioned in modern textbooks. No. (2) is the equally rare offprint of Magendie?s report on his continuing experiments with emetics. Magendie proved, against the then-current theory of Haller, that the stomach was passive, not active, in vomiting. This is essentially correct; however, Magendie failed to observe the active role of the pyloric end of the stomach in his account. Olmsted, Magendie, pp. 51-53; he does not cite these offprints in his bibliography.

Bentley 499. - Cox II,285. - Abbey 719. - Sabin 91075. - Titelauflage der zweiten, erweiterten und veränderten Auflage von 1806. Die erste Ausgabe erschien 1796. - Eines der wichtigsten Büchern gegen die Sklaverei und die Kolonialpolitik Europas in Südamerika. Der aus einer englisch-holländischen Familie stammende Stedman (1744-1797) verpflichtete sich im Jahre 1772 freiwillig als Offizier einer holländischen Einheit, die zur Bekämpfung der marodierenden Banden entlaufener Sklaven in Surinam aufgeboten wurde. Beeindruckt vom Reichtum und der Schönheit Surinams, geschockt vom Verhalten der Kolonisten und Sklavenhalter, bewegt sich Stedmans Bericht zwischen Himmel und Hölle. Im Verlaufe des fünfjährigen Aufenthaltes entwickelt er eine aufgeklärte Haltung gegenüber der Sklaverei, die er als Institution nicht abgeschafft sehen will, der er aber den Schutz des Individuums, unabhängig von Rasse, Geschlecht und sozialer Herkunft, gegenüberstellt. Stedman schrieb seinen Bericht 10 Jahre nach seiner Rückkehr nach Europa für Joseph Johnson, einem Londoner Verleger, der in engem Kontakt zu der publizistischen Elite der englischen Aufklärung stand. Der Erfolg seines Buches, bis 1830 erschienen weit über 20 verschiedene Ausgaben in 6 Sprachen, ist in erster Linie der schriftstellerischen Fähigkeit Stedmans, seiner politischen und sozialen Haltung, und weniger dem geografischen Interesse an Holländisch Guyana zuzuschreiben. Die Illustrationen wurden zum Teil vom englischen Dichter und Maler William Blake nach Vorzeichnungen von Stedman gestochen. Die Tafeln mit Darstellungen von Pflanzen, Tieren, Indianern sowie mehrere Tafeln, die Bestrafungen von schwarzen Sklaven zeigen. Eindrücklich ist das von Stedman gezeichnete und von Francesco Bartolozzi gestochene Selbstporträt, das den Autor nach einem Gefecht in nachdenklicher Haltung, fast androgyn wirkend, zusammen mit einem Toten Sklaven vor einer brennenden Eingeborenensiedlung zeigt. Die letzte Tafel des Werkes, von William Blake wahrscheinlich nicht nur gestochen, sondern auch gezeichnet, zeigt die allegorische Darstellung der drei nackten Schönheiten 'Europe supported by Africa & America'. - Vorsätze schwach gebräunt. Schönes, sehr breitrandiges Exemplar in geschmackvollen neuen Einbänden. - Second issue of the second enlarged and revised edition of 1806. The first edition was published in 1796. One of the most important books against slavery and the European colonial politics in South America. Born in a n English-Dutch family, Stedman (1744-1797) volunteered in 1772 as an officer of a Dutch military unit to help put down a slave and maroon rebellion in Surinam. Impressed by the beauty and opulence of Surinam and shocked by the mistreatment of slaves by their masters, Stedman's account balances between heaven and hell. During his five year stay, he developed an enlightened attitude towards slavery, which he does not want to see abolished. He confronts slavery with the protection of the individual, independent from race, gender and social background. Stedman wrote his report ten years after he came back to Europe for Joseph Johnson, a London publisher with close contacts to the learned elite of the British Enlightment. His book was such a success that it was published in more than 20 different editions and in six languages. This success was due more to Stedman's literary talent and his political and social views than his interest to describe the geography of Dutch Guyana. The illustrations are partly engraved by the English poet and artist after Stedman's original drawings. The plates show illustrations of plants, animals, Indians and even slave tortures. Stedman's impressive self-portrait is signed by Francesco Bartolozzi. It shows the author after a combat in a contemplative attitude, almost androgynous, together with a dead slave in front of an indigenous village. The last plate of this book, probably drawn and engraved by Blake shows three naked beauties being an emblematic representation of 'Europe supported by Africa & America'. Endpapers lightly browned. Very large margined copy with very elegant new bindings. [14 Warenabbildungen bei antiquariat.de]

        Allgemeine Lehrsätze in Beziehung auf die im verkehrten Verhältnisse des Quadrats der Entfernung wirkenden Anziehungs- und Abstossungs-Kräfte.Leipzig: Weidmannschen Buchhandlung, 1840. First edition.

      First separate edition, <b>Gauss's own personal copy</b>, of "the first systematic treatment of potential theory as a mathematical topic, [which] recognized the necessity of existence theorems in that field, and reached a standard of rigor that remained unsurpassed for more than a century" (DSB V 306). Norman 882.<br/><br/> Gauss's ideas on potential theory developed over several decades, beginning with his work on geodesy. In 1813 he had published <i>Theoria attractionis corporum sphaeroidicorum ellipticorum homogeneorum methodus nova tractatus</i>, which used several early results in potential theory to calculate the gravity at different points of the earth's surface (although Gauss did not use the term 'potential' at that time). Almost two decades later he began his collaboration with Wilhelm Weber on geomagnetism. In <i>Allgemeine Theorie der Erdmagnetismus</i> (1839), his general theory of terrestrial magnetism, Gauss determined the magnetic force at the earth's surface by expressing the magnetic potential as the sum of a converging series of spherical functions (Gauss retained only the first few terms as an approximation). <br/><br/> "A year after the publication of his general theory of earth magnetism, Gauss published a systematic presentation of the mathematical tool he had used in that work, the potential. Here Gauss formally introduced the term 'potential' to designate the function from which the components of forces varying as the inverse square of the distance can be derived. He wrote the function as <i>V = &Sigma; µ/r</i>, which expresses the action at any point of a collection of point 'masses' or, in general, 'agents', and he developed a collection of theorems concerning the behavior of this function. The significance of <i>V</i> is that its properties are the 'key to the attracting or repelling forces' of nature. Potential theory applies to the phenomena of nature described by inverse-square forces between particles, to the phenomena of gravitation, electricity and magnetism. Gauss even considered its application to electrodynamic phenomena, since Ampère's force between current elements depends on the inverse square of the distance; but the action of this force is complicated by the directionality of currents, and Gauss did not treat it here and only spoke of discussing it in a later paper, which he never did. <br/><br/> "Gauss showed that despite the striking differences of the observed phenomena of gravitation, electricity and magnetism, their mathematical description draws on a common body of theorems. Potential theory provided mathematical methods of impressive generality: by studying the behavior of one function, abstracted from any one domain of phenomena, physicists could learn at once the mathematical structures relating the phenomena belonging to several domains. The conservation of energy principle, enunciated soon after Gauss's potential theory, made the potential an even more important aid in developing physical laws" (Jungnickel & McCormmach, pp. 68-9). <br/><br/> This copy is from the personal library of Gauss. It was sold as a duplicate in 1951 by the Göttingen State and University Library, at which time it passed into private hands. <br/><br/> The present work is an offprint (or separatum) from Vol. 4 (1840) of <i>Resultate aus den Beobachtungen des magnetischen Vereins</i>, a six volume work published from 1836 to 1841, containing fifteen papers by Gauss and twenty-three by Weber. It was quickly translated into French (Liouville's <i>Journal de Mathematiques</i> VII 1842) and English (Taylor's <i>Scientific Memoirs</i> 1842). Gauss himself lectured on the results contained in this paper at Göttingen on 26 March 1840. <br/><br/> C. Jungnickel & R. McCormmach, <i>Intellectual Mastery of Nature.

        A Letter to the Rt. Hon. Lord Grenville Occasioned by Some Observations

      of his Lordship on the East India Company's Establishment for the Education of their Civil Servants, First Edition, 38pp 8vo, modern half calf antique style, good, London, Johnson, 1813. Goldsmith 20734. Photograph available on request. The great political economist and population theorist Malthus was an important professional educator. He taught at Haileybury College as Professor of History and Economics from 1805 until his death in 1834. The College had been attached as "a baneful institution" by Granville since it appeared to be so specialist in training the East India Company's civil service that it simply formed its pupils "into a caste". Grenville's case was that the East India Company should draw its officers from several different public schools, not train specialist force. Malthus came to the defence of his beloved College with this specific rejoinder: "A public school and three years residence at one of our universities may be decidedly the best education for an English statesman; but for an Indian statesman, who must be acquired with the oriental languages, and habituated to Indian customs and manners before he loses his pliability, there is evidently not time for such a course, the oriental languages are best taught in the East; but languages alone are not a sufficient qualification for the administration of the British government in India, and general knowledge is best taught in the west." Malthus moreover defends the very wide range of the curriculum devised at Haileybury. "It was imagined that some of the pursuits that contribute to form this variety were of too difficult a nature for young men of the age above mentioned [sixteen--seventeen]; and the subject of political economy was considered as one. I confess that I once thought so myself. But the particular examples, which I have witnessed, of distinguished progress in this study at the East India College, and the numerous instances of very fair progress, enable me to say with confidence that a youth of seventeen (and this is the most usual age at which the study is begun, as it is generally confined to the last year or year and a half) with a good understanding, is fully able to comprehend the principles of political economy, and is rarely inclined to think them either too difficult or too dull to engage his attention." Finally, and most significantly in terms of the history of educational innovation, Malthus describes the procedure of a competitive examination, as practiced at the College: "The answers are, in all cases which will admit of it, given in writing in the presence of the professors, and without the possibility of a reference to books. After the examination in any particular department is over, the professor in that department reviews at his leisure all the papers which he has received, and places, as nearly as he can, each individual in the numerical order of his relative merit, and in certain divisions implying his degree of positive merit. These arrangements are all subject to the control of the whole collegiate body. They require considerable time and attention, and are executed with scrupulous care and, I firmly believe, with singular impartiality."

        Golfe de Genes (Golfo di Genova).

      Dalla "Carta Amministrativa del Regno D'Italia", edita a Milano nel 1813 (una grande carta composta da pi? fogli applicati su tela, ciascuno di cm 54 x 67 circa per un perimetro totale di cm 1400 x 1100 circa), bella carta del territorio ligure, comprendente oltre che le aree interne tutta la costa da Tinetto e Porto Venere a Bordighera, composta da un foglio, numerato come foglio XVII sulla parte incisa, e con il numero 17 al retro della tela. Benedetto e Gaudenzio Bordiga furono incisori e cartografi, originari della Valsesia e attivi a Milano nella prima met? del XIX secolo, un periodo caratterizzato da alterne vicende storico politiche, in cui realizzarono un discreto corpus incisorio. L'opera pi? importante cui contribuirono fu la "Carte g?n?rale du Th??tre de la Guerre en Italie", una grande carta commissionata, nel 1797 dallo Stato Maggiore dell'Armata Francese di Napoleone, al capo battaglione Bacler d'Albe, capo del Gabinetto Cartografico Francese: la carta, celebrativa della prima campagna d'Italia, fu in gran parte realizzata a partire da carte preesistenti, fu realizzata in cinquantaquattro fogli sotto la direzione di Giacomo Pinchetti e fu appunto incisa dai fratelli Benedetto e Gaudenzio Bordiga. Gaudenzio Bordiga (Camasco, Varallo, 10 febbraio 1773 - Milano, 18 gennaio 1837), segu? a Varallo studi letterari e di disegno. Stabilitosi a Milano con il fratello Benedetto, fu capo incisore dell'Istituto Geografico Militare e mantenne tale carica anche dopo l'occupazione austriaca. Senza la collaborazione del fratello Bendetto, Gaudenzio disegn?, e a volte incise, varie carte geografiche militari ("Carta delle stazioni militari in Italia", 1804; "Carta militare del Regno d'Etruria e del principato di Lucca", 1806) e scrisse opere di erudizione storico - artistica ("Notizie intorno alle opere di Gaudenzio Ferrari, pittore e plasticatore", Milano, G. Pirotta, 1821; "Storia e guida del Sacro Monte di Varallo", Varallo, 1830). Molto buono lo stato di conservazione.

        Isle de Corse (Corsica).

      Dalla "Carta Amministrativa del Regno d'Italia co' suoi stabilimenti politici, militari, civili e religiosi e con una parte degli stati limitrofi. Costrutta nel Deposito della Guerra per ordine del Ministro della Guerra e Marina nell'anno MDCCCXI, aggiunta e corretta nell'anno 1813", edita a Milano nel 1813 (una grande carta composta da pi? fogli quadreattati e applicati su tela d'epoca, ciascuno di cm 54 x 67 circa per un perimetro totale di cm 1400 x 1100 circa), bella carta della Corsica composta da due fogli unibili, numerati come foglio XVII sulla parte incisa, e con il numero 22 e 27 al retro della tela. Benedetto e Gaudenzio Bordiga furono incisori e cartografi, originari della Valsesia e attivi a Milano nella prima met? del XIX secolo, un periodo caratterizzato da alterne vicende storico politiche, in cui realizzarono un discreto corpus incisorio. L'opera pi? importante cui contribuirono fu la "Carte g?n?rale du Th??tre de la Guerre en Italie", una grande carta commissionata, nel 1797 dallo Stato Maggiore dell'Armata Francese di Napoleone, al capo battaglione Bacler d'Albe, capo del Gabinetto Cartografico Francese: la carta, celebrativa della prima campagna d'Italia, fu in gran parte realizzata a partire da carte preesistenti, fu realizzata in cinquantaquattro fogli sotto la direzione di Giacomo Pinchetti e fu appunto incisa dai fratelli Benedetto (1800 - 1834) e Gaudenzio Bordiga. Gaudenzio Bordiga (Camasco, Varallo, 10 febbraio 1773 - Milano, 18 gennaio 1837), segu? a Varallo studi letterari e di disegno. Stabilitosi a Milano con il fratello Benedetto, fu capo incisore dell'Istituto Geografico Militare e mantenne tale incarico anche dopo l'occupazione austriaca. Senza la collaborazione del fratello Benedetto, Gaudenzio disegn?, e a volte incise, varie carte geografiche militari ("Carta delle stazioni militari in Italia", 1804; "Carta militare del Regno d'Etruria e del principato di Lucca", 1806) e scrisse opere di erudizione storico - artistica ("Notizie intorno alle opere di Gaudenzio Ferrari, pittore e plasticatore", Milano, G. Pirotta, 1821; "Storia e guida del Sacro Monte di Varallo", Varallo, 1830). Alla carta mancano quattro riquadri ma delle sole parti bianche (e che peraltro possono essere facilmente integrati con altri, originali, provenienti dalla stessa granda carta). Molto buono lo stato di conservazione.

Although Courtois discovered the element in 1811, the announcement of it was not made until two years later after he had turned it over to Charles Desormés and Nicolas Clément."The first publication on iodine are somewhat confusing. Courtois's research is found in a paper attributed to him (the paper offered) but actually the work of Clément.... was followed by an anonymous article (the second paper offered). Gay-Lussac. who repeated and extended Courtios's work, was responsible for this paper. Courtois himself published nothing. These two articles were immediately followed by short contributions of Gay-Lussac and Humphry Davy on the new element (third and fourth paper offered). Gay-Lussacs views (none too flattering to Davy) on the history ofthe discovery of iodine appeared in his "Mémoire sur l'iode" (1814)."(DSB III, p. 455). - Weeks "Discovery of the Elements", pp. 257-262.The volume contains further importent papers in chemistry, Guyton de Morveau "Sur la chaux maigre", "Sur le dissolvant des pierres biliaires", an importent paper by Chevreul on animal fats "Recherches chimiques sur plusieurs corps gras, et particulierement sur leurs combinaisons avec les alcalis", Berzelius's papers "Mémoires sur la compositions des fluides animaux" (first edition in French) + Suite (first edition), Parmentier etc. etc

Goldschmid (103) described the twelve plates as "of the very greatest accuracy." In 1811 Bell had published his Diseases of the Urethra and classified strictures of the urethra. He was one of the few nineteenth century surgeons to give precedence to pathology over complicated instruments in the treatment of strictures. Murphy 463-64. Gordon-Taylor 12. Hirsch. Not in Kiefer or the other catalogues we routinely consult.
