        Mémoire Sur L'iode" [Memoire Sur L'iode] in Annales de Chimie, Vol. 91, pp. 5-160 AND Premier Mémoire Sur L'Opium [Memoire Sur L'Opium] in Annales de Chimie, Vol. 92, pp. 225-247. Paris: Chez Crochard, Libraire, rue de l'Ecole de Médecine, 1814

      Chez Crochard, Paris 1814 - FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING OF GAY-LUSSAC'S CLASSIC PAPER ON IODINE. Two volumes bound as one. The Dictionary of Scientific Biography notes this as one of Gay-Lussac's most important papers (DSB Noted in DSB, 5, 327). In the late nineteenth century the chemist Wilhelm Ostwald, winner of the 1909 Nobel Prize, selected Gay-Lussac's paper as "one of the first and one of the best monographs of all time on a single element and its most important compounds and as such it has served as a model for many later pieces of research" (Crosland, Gay-Lussac: Scientist and Bourgeois, 85). Louis Joseph Gay-Lussac (1778-1850) was a French chemist and physicist with a well-known rivalry with Humphry Davy. While J. C. Courtois discovered iodine in 1811- and while he recognized iodine to be a distinctive substance from its purple vapor - he confused its compound with hydrogen as that of hydrogen chloride. Gay-Lussac and Davy were asked to further explore the issue, however they carried out their research virtually simultaneously, making it somewhat difficult to assign priority. Davy's claim for the originality of his study of iodine depends upon his argument of knowledge prior to that of Gay-Lussac. While the publication history is confusing, history credits Gay-Lussac (DSB, Vol. 5, p. 322). "In 1814 Davy did some further research on iodine, but? in prolonged and detailed research he was outshone by Gay-Lussac, who presented a full study of the new element in a major memoir read to the Institute on 1 August 1814" (Crosland). Davy's work had been somewhat hurried and incomplete while Gay-Lussac's was anything but. When published [this paper], at 155 pages, filled an entire issue of the Annales de chime" (Crosland). Gay-Lussac's work in this paper was exceptionally detailed and he "deserves full credit for his detailed study of hydrogen iodine, which he found to have a 50 percent hydrogen content by volume. He contrasted its thermal decomposition with the stability of hydrogen chloride. By the action of chlorine on iodine, he prepared? iodine monochloride and trichlorise. After further careful study of the properties of iodine, he prepared and examined a number of iodides and iodates. He prepared for the first time ethyl iodide by distilling together concentrated hydriodic acid with absolute alcohol" (DSB Vol. 5 p. 322). In this paper, his most important on the subject, Gay-Lussac settled Courtois's confusion, proving that the new substance was an element analogous of chlorine and it was Gay-Lussac who gave iodine the name iode (from the Greek ioeides, "violet colored". In a curious side-note, some even saw Gay-Lussac's paper as wondrous, including the "normally restrained German edition L. W. Gilbert, [who suggested] that the memoir transports the reader into a sort of fairyland? In order to understand Gilbert's remarks, the 20th century reader would have to forget his modern sophistication and try to recapture the childlike wonder which might be engendered on first seeing the black crystals of iodine transformed by heat into a beautiful violet vapor with no equal among contemporary dyestuffs" (ibid). ALSO INCLUDED is the first publication of a paper read to the Institute of France in 1804 by the French chemist Armand Séguin. In it, Séguin details his study of opium, of the greatest import being his "technique for obtaining another substance from opium" (Robinette, 378). Séguin "did not know it, but he was on the trail of one of the most far-reaching medical discoveries of all time" - morphine (Booth, Opium, 68). Séguin's discovery was not published for a decade [until the paper offered here], by which time the chemist was in disgrace for embezzling drug supplies from the French army, and his work was dismissed. In his speech and paper, Séguin "reported finding 'a very peculiar vegetable-animal material'" (Robinette). Though the timing in muddled as by the time of publication other researchers had made similar discoveries, writing in 1832, Pellet [Attributes: First Edition]

In 1814, publisher John Murray bought out Miller's plate-book business, and issued a series of seven costume books in royal octavo, including the present volume on Turkey, which has reproduced the 60 plates in slightly smaller size using aquatint (rather than stipple-engraving) and hand-coloring. Each plate is accompanied by an explanation of the figure's role in society or in the Turkish court, with notes on details of dress, and was written by Miller or possibly by William Alexander, as in the folio first edition.

"Le pas le plus important quant à la rigueur du texte grec fut fait en France par F.

Ce nouveau texte ne contenant pas les commentaires de Théon [l'interprétateur grec de l'école alexandrine le plus important dont le texte figure quasi systématiquement dans tous les manuscrits], Peyrard avait conclu que cette copie était beaucoup plus ancienne que celles que l'on connaissait alors. Cependant une étude plus approfondie du texte a montré que le copiste avait disposé des deux versions, avec et sans les commentaires de Théon, et avait donné la préférence à cette dernière.

        Sir Roger De Coverley

      1814. STEELE, Richard and ADDISON, Joseph. Sir Roger De Coverley. Reprinted from The Spectator. London: Sampson Low, circa 1900. Square 12mo, contemporary full burgundy morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and covers, multi-color inlaid morocco cover illustration of Sir Roger de Coverley, raised bands, all edges gilt. $2200.Later edition of one of the leading series by two of the most famous 18th-century British periodical essayists, with illustrations by Chas. O. Murray, beautifully bound in a morocco-gilt Kelliegram binding with a detailed multi-color morocco cover inlay of Sir Roger De Coverley.“The periodical essayÂ… reached its acme of achievement early in the 18th century in the work of Richard Steele and Joseph Addison.” Together, The Guardian, The Spectator and The Tatler “helped to form the taste and to shape the morals and manners of countless generations in Britain and abroad” (John Calhoun Stephens). Sir Roger de Coverley was one of Steele and AddisonÂ’s most noteworthy achievements. Created in The Spectator in 1711 by the writing team, Sir Roger de Coverley was said to be an English squire of Queen AnneÂ’s reign. His name was immediately familiar to readers as it was also the name of a well-known English/Scottish country dance. The writers explained the coincidence by making de Coverley the great-grandson of the danceÂ’s inventor. Sir Roger was intended to embody the values and display the mannerisms of an old country gentleman, which allowed his Tory politics to be portrayed as silly and outdated while the character himself remained beloved by the public. He swiftly became one of Steele and AddisonÂ’s most popular creations. With original covers bound in at rear. A few spots of foxing to text, crease to front free endpaper, expert repair to front joint. A near-fine copy, beautifully bound.

      1814. GIBBON, Edward. Miscellaneous Works of Edward Gibbon, Esq. With Memoirs of his Life and Writings, Composed by Himself: Illustrated from his Letters, with Occasional Notes and Narrative by John Lord Sheffield. London: John Murray, 1814. Five volumes. Octavo, contemporary full brown calf gilt, raised bands, marbled endpapers and edges. $1500.Second edition of GibbonÂ’s miscellaneous works, greatly expanded from the first, with engraved frontispiece portrait, four engraved plates and folding genealogical chart, handsomely bound.After GibbonÂ’s death in 1794, his closest friend, Lord Sheffield, collected and published these letters, notes, diaries, fragments, essays and autobiography, carefully editing them so that his late friend would not be exposed to uncomplimentary public scrutiny. In his preface, Lord Sheffield wrote, “Few men, I believe, have ever so fully unveiled their own character, by a minute narrative of their sentiments and pursuits, as Mr. GibbonÂ… not with study and labour— not with an affected frankness— but with a genuine confession of his little foibles and peculiarities, and a good-humoured and natural display of his own conduct and opinions.” Lord Sheffield forbade in his will the publication of any additional papers. The first edition was published in two quarto volumes in 1796. “About 1807 Lord Sheffield began to work on a second editionÂ… It is not clear why another seven years elapsed before the second edition was publishedÂ… [Though projected to run six volumes,] there were in fact five octavo volumes, containing the old and the new matter rearranged”—as here—“and one quarto volume containing the new matter separately [thus the first editionÂ’s publication dates are often cited as 1796-1815]Â… The five volumes, though dated 1814 on the titles, were not actually issued until early in 1815” (Norton, 192-5). Norton, 200. Lowndes, 886. Armorial bookplates.Scattered light foxing, light expert restoration to handsome calf bindings.

        Voyage to Abyssinia

      1814. First Edition . (EAST AFRICA) SALT, Henry. A Voyage to Abyssinia, and Travels into the Interior of that Country, ExecutedÂ… in the Years 1809 and 1810. London: F.C. and J. Rivington, 1814. Large quarto, contemporary full diced brown calf rebacked, black morocco spine label, raised bands, original marbled endpapers and edges. $4800.First edition of this fascinating travel narrative, chronicling SaltÂ’s expeditions across Egypt and Ethiopia, illustrated with two vignettes and 34 splendid copper-engraved plates and maps (four folding, one hand-colored), in contemporary calf boards.The renowned English diplomat archaeologist Henry Salt initially studied as a painter, and it was his artistic talents that “recommended him to the collector George Annesley, Viscount of Valentia, who took him on a tour of the East in 1802-06, during which he visited Egypt, Ethiopia and India. In 1809-10 Salt returned to Ethiopia as a quasi-official envoy under CanningÂ’s sponsorship, marching from the Red Sea coast with an escort of 160 bearers to explore trade and diplomatic links with the Ethiopian emperor Wolde Selassie. Britain, fearing a French alliance with Egypt, wished to secure a port on the Red Sea. Salt carried out a little archaeology, discovering at Aksum three large Ethiopian inscriptions,” and documenting his work in this impressive volume (Howgego II:S6). SaltÂ’s role in three key excavations (Belzoni, Caviglia, and dÂ’Athanasi) yielded splendid collections of Egyptian antiquities, many of which are now in the British Museum (Clayton, 44). In 1815 Salt was appointed Consul-General in Egypt and a year later, together with John Burckhardt, employed Giovanni Baptista Belzoni to remove the colossal bust of Rameses II from Thebes (now also in the British Museum). For this Salt was hailed as “the second Lord Elgin.” Voyage to Abyssinia includes “particulars respecting the aboriginal African tribes, extending from Mosambique to the borders of Egypt” and a lengthy glossary of local languages. The numerous full-page illustrations are made by Charles Heath from original sketches by Salt, and include “perhaps the earliest printed illustration of hippo shooting” (Czech), which took place on the River Tacazzi. Blackmer 1479. Gay 184. Czech, African Big Game Hunting, 141. Old bookbinder ticket to front pastedown.Large folding hand-colored map reinforced along fold on verso, infrequent spotting to text.
