        An essay towards the calculus of functions

      W. Bulmer & Co, London 1815 - FIRST EDITIONS, journal issues, of Babbage's two most important contributions to mathematics, essentially founding the general theory of the calculus of functions. Babbage began work on the calculus of functions as early as 1809 and continued during his studies at Cambridge. In 1815, at just 23 years of age, Babbage published the results of his work in two long papers in the Philosophical Transactions. "Babbage believed that his new scheme would serve as a generalized calculus to include all problems capable of analytical formulation, and it is possible to see here a hint of the inspiration for his concept of the Analytical Engine. While the work on the engines and his other scientific, social and political activities caused him virtually to abandon mathematical research at the age of thirty, the calculus of functions was the area he often yearned to continue. In fact the calculus of functions was not taken up by other workers, and it is the aspect of Babbage's mathematical work that modern mathematicians find the most fascinating" (Dubbey, The Mathematical Work of Charles Babbage). Many years later, in his Passages from the Life of a Philosopher, Babbage referred to the calculus of functions as his "earliest step" and "one to which I would willingly recur if other demands on my time permitted."

        An Essay on Trees in Landscape; or, an Attempt to Shew the Propriety and Importance of Characteristic Expression on this Branch of Art, and the Means of Producing it: with Examples

      printed by T. Bensley, for C.J. Kennion; and sold by Messrs. Boydell and Co, John Marray, and James Newman, London 1815 - Title-page with aquatint vignette and 50 plates engraved by C.J. Kennion (22 of them aquatint and etching, the rest etchings, mostly soft ground). Folio. [370 x 300 x 30 mm]. [1]f, x, 48 pp. Newly bound by Bayntun-Riviere in half mid-green goatskin, marbled paper sides, smooth spine lettered on a red and a blue label and dated at the foot, plain endleaves, uncut edges. The title is rather grubby (possibly having been at the top of the pile in the printing house). There is some occasional light spotting, but it is a good copy, with the original tissue guards and uncut edges. Edward Kennion trained as an artist at Mr. Fuller's Academy in London, and then spent a number of years in service in Jamaica. He returned to England in 1769 and accompanied the landscape painter George Barret R.A. on sketching tours in the Lake District and around Liverpool. He was admitted as a Fellow of the Society of Artists in 1790, and between 1790 and 1791 he exhibited 24 works at its annual exhibitions. He also exhibited eight pictures at the Royal Academy between 1795 and 1807. In 1803 Kennion issued a prospectus of a work entitled Elements of Landscape and Picturesque Beauty, which was to appear in four volumes. However, he died in 1809, and the only part to have been completed was An Essay on Trees in Landscape. This was edited and published by his son, Charles, in 1815. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Malacostraca Podophthalmata Britanniae; or, descriptions of such British species of the Linnean genus Cancer as have their eyes elevated on footstalks. Illustrated with figures of all the species, by James Sowerby.

      - London, printed by B. Meredith, published and sold by James Sowerby, 1815. 4to (295 x 230mm). pp. (4), (96), with 47 (5 folded or double-page) handcoloured engraved plates. Recent half calf, spine with black gilt lettered label. [Together with:] SOWERBY, G.B. Malacostraca Podopthalmata Britanniae . continued and completed, with a new generic and specific index to the whole, and seven new plates. London, Bernard Quaritch, 1875. 4to (365 x 260mm). pp. (28), with 7 (1 double-page) handcoloured engraved plates. Publisher's blue printed wrappers (a bit worn). One of the most splendid works on Crustacea ever published and comparable to J.F.W. Herbst's work on the Crustacea published 23 years earlier. The work was published in 19 parts and the concluding double issue by George Brettingham Sowerby was published over a half century afterwards by the antiquarian bookseller Bernard Quaritch, who had bought the remaining stock of the foregoing issues. Having been published over such a long period complete copies are very rare. The work is dedicated to Sir Joseph Banks, who may both have supported his application to the Museum, and his candidature to the Royal Society.William Elford Leach (1790-1836) was an English zoologist and marine biologist and assistant keeper of the Zoological Department at the British Museum. "In 1813, when Konig was appointed Keeper of the Natural History Departments, he was given an assistant, William Elford Leach (1790-1836), perhaps one of the more brilliant minds to enter the Museum. In every generation English science has been fortunate in attracting men with intuitive feel for nature who by their gift and enthusiasm infect others and leave their inspiration planted in those who follow. Anyone, who knew Leach and even the greater number who did not, came to revere his memory and example. After over a century and half, in spite of the shortness of his service, he stands out from his contemporaries as a 'profound naturalist'" (Gunther, The Founders of Science at the British Museum p. 49).Nissen ZBI, 2404; B.M.

        A Picture of St Petersburg. Views of the City, the Sledges, the People.

      For Edward Orme. 1815 - A COMPLETE COLLECTION of 20 hand-coloured aquatint plates mostly after Mornay. No text or title-page. These have been carefully and crisply trimmed to the edge of the image, thus no captions. They have then been mounted centrally and back to back on either side of a beige thick silk page with red cotton edges, silk page size 19 x 13ins, 480 x 330mm, image size 13.25 x 9.25ins, 340 x 240mm. I believe they would quite easily detach - some of the old brittle glue is loosening and already enables some corners to be loosened. There is a little minor cockling where some plates were glued down, but overall in acceptable condition. Abbey 226 (as Mornay), Tooley 355 (as Orme). Not in Colas.There are also 29 pages of the large chromolithographs from Illustrated London News mounted in the same way. The whole in a rubbed but sound folio half morocco album. 12 plates illustrate views of the City by the months of the year, the remainder of costumed figures and varous lively sledge scenes.

[Leaf height: 16.4 cm.] 228, 94, [2] pages and 264, 129, [1 blank], [2] pages. Final leaf in each volume consists of an index and errata. Original sheep; vol. I rebacked in modern leather with new leather title label on spine. Spine of vol. II nears original leather label, gilt rules, and small gilt decorations in four compartments. New volume number labels on spines of both volumes. A good set. Spine of vol. II with some wear and endcaps professionally rebuilt. Corners worn, a few scratches and small spots to boards. Upper 1.5 cm of title page of vol. I excised (evidently to remove previous owner's name), with loss of the initial article ("An") of the printed title. The end of the owner's inscription remains and it was evidently written by Henry Shriver, Jun., of Bath, whose similar inscription appears at the head of the title page of vol. II. The inscriptions are dated April 29 and May 1, 1816, respectively. Slightly later name of Edward Townsend on front free endpaper and first page of text in each volume. Marginal chipping to the leaf comprising pp. 13-14 in vol. I, affecting a few letters in three to four words on each page, all of which are easily inferred from context. Light foxing and toning as expected. Preceded by several editions of 1814-1815, which were issued under two variant titles: "Views on Lake Erie . " and "Views of the Campaigns of the Northwestern Army ." However, this is the FIRST AUBURN EDITION, the FIRST WITH THIS TITLE, and, according to Howes, "THE BEST EDITION." Samuel R. Brown (1775-1817) served as a private in the Ohio militia. He "partook of the pursuit of British forces following the battle of Lake Erie . Brown fought at the Thames, but felt sympathy for the Native Americans. Includes topographical observations." --Fredriksen, "War of 1812 Eyewitness Accounts," 236.

        MANOSCRITTO RIGUARDANTE I "CENTO GIORNI"

      20 maggio 1815 - Importante manoscritto titolato "Relevé del Etate de Situation de Dépote de Cavalerie de L'Armée du nord". Rara testimonianza della ricerca di uomini e cavalli necessari alla Campagna che Napoleone, rientrato dall'Isola d'Elba, preparò durante la primavera del 1815 contro gli Alleati e che passò alla storia con il nome di Campagna dei Paesi Bassi. Il documento è composto da testo e tavole sinottiche inoltre il primo foglio, doppio, contiene gli altri di misure ridotte. Non reca indicazioni circa la data in cui fu redatto ma si suppone che sia il 20 maggio 1815 poiché nessuna data riportata supera questo giorno. Durante quei giorni infatti si accelerarono i preparativi dell'Armata che doveva essere ricostituita. Il manoscritto concerne 4 corpi dell'Armata del Nord, cioè quella che Napoleone comanderà personalmente nel giugno del 1815. La veste grafica ricorda una lavagna, dove i reggimenti di ogni corpo formano le linee orizzontali, le linee verticali formano le voci da segnalare (disponibili e pronti a partire, disponibili dopo equipaggiamento ecc.). All'interno dello schema si trovano osservazioni sul reclutamento, le rimonte, l'abbigliamento e molto altro ancora. 10 pagine legate con nastro verde di cui l'ottava bianca, la nona solo con intestazione, bianca la decima. 0

        William Pinckney, Ripped Off by the Government for His Work on Jay's Treaty, Declares "I Do Not Owe The Government One Farthing"

      Baltimore 1815 - Autograph Letter Signed, Baltimore, January 11, 1815, to Richard Forrest. "I am brought in Debt upon the Treasury Books.by stopping my salary.and leaving me to maintain myself in London.while I was employed under the orders of the President in the affairs of the Maryland Bank stock." Complete Transcript "Baltimore. Jany 11. 1815Dear Sir, I do not owe the Government one farthing as Commissioner under the 7th article of Mr. Jay's Treaty - and will not accept of any compensation upon that offer now. The way in which I am brought in Debt upon the Treasury Books on that score is by stopping my salary immediately upon the closing of the Commission and leaving me to maintain myself in London until the month of August following while I was employed under the orders of the President in the affairs of the Maryland Bank stock.- I sent you some time ago a full statement upon that business - with an account of the Credit which I expected and vouchers to prove that the General Assembly of Maryland made me the present which was vowed to me upon an assumption that I was to receive (or rather had received with Mr. Monroe's assent) my salary from the United States. I begged you to present this statement account voucher to the proper Department and I relied confidently on the justice of the government for the allowance of what I claimed. Please, do let me know what was done with these papers. In the meantime I repeat that I will not accept of any show of a compensation and that the placing the $1,000 and the balance of my salary to the credit of my Commissioners account is that and nothing more. I am , Dear Sir, Very truly yours, Wm PinkneyRichard Forrest Esquire"Historical BackgroundArticle 7 of Jay's Treaty called for five commissioners (three American two British) to hear claims for compensation from merchants whose ships and property suffered damage "during the course of the War in which His Majesty is now engaged." Commissioners were to sit for 18-month terms; Pinckney's stretched from 1796 to 1804. His service also included four years as ambassador to Great Britain (1807-1811), a year as Attorney General (1811) and military service in the War of 1812, during which he was seriously wounded. After the war he became U. S. minister to Russia, served in the Senate, and enjoyed a lucrative practice at the Supreme Court bar. He argued the winning side of two of the landmark cases before John Marshall, McCullough v. Maryland and Cohens v. Virginia.

        Treatise on the Valuation of Annuities and Assurances on Lives and Survivorships; on the Construction of Tables of Mortality: and on the Probabilities and Expectations of Life. In Two Volumes.

      London - For the Author, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown 1815 - The first edition of Milne's influential and revolutionary treatise on acturial science. Complete in Two Volumes. In an Equitable Assurance Company binding, with their name in gilt to the front boards. With Riley Dunn & Wilson, Conservators & Bookbinders, labels to the rear pastedowns. Joshua Milne, 1776-1851, was an actuary. The premium rates and life tables that Sun Life adopted in 1810 were based on the table deduced by Dr Richard Price. . . Milne found them to depend on inadequate data, and the rates based on them too high. His knowledge of mathematics enabled him to reconstruct the life tables, taking as the basis of his calculations the Carlisle bills of mortality. . . he published in 1815 his famous two-volume work, A treatise on the valuation of annuities and assurances. . . The result was a revolution in actuarial science. Milne's table was remarkably accurate, and was very generally adopted by insurance societies. The Sun retained for over a century some of the premium rates that Milne introduced in 1820, and his table of mortality was only finally superseded in 1870 -DNB. Condition: In a full calf binding, rebacked, with the original boards, and the spine laid down. Externally, the original boards are rubbed, with slight loss to the spine labels. The hinges have been reinforced as part of the conservation process. Internally, firmly bound, with just the occasional spot. Overall: VERY GOOD. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Le Retour de L'Eglise

      Rue Coquillere, No. 26, Paris 1815 - A wonderful colour-printed impression of this charming print depicting the jovial celebration of a country wedding. Genre painting came back into favour when the Academy admitted Watteau's "The Pilgrimage to Cythera" to its ranks in 1717. From that point on, a fashion for decorative genre subjects swept the country, influencing an entire generation of French artists. This stunning print is a wonderful example of French pastoral painting at this period as well as a superb example of French colour printing. Early colour printing was developed as a means of reproducing the effects of painting in oils. This spectacular print exemplifies the single-plate colour printing technique used in England, then adopted in France, at the close of the eighteenth century. The effect is achieved by inking a single plate with several different colours by using a rag stump, this process is known as a la poupée . The combination of colour printing and hand-colouring adds to vivacious character of the image, the happy dance-like promenade from the wedding to the celebration. Colour-printed aquatint. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 11 3/4 x 16 3/4 inches.

        A Collection of Decorated Letters & Numerals with Calligraphic Alphabets and Numerals

      [not indicated: not indicated]. [circa 1815]. Seventeen oblong etched and engraved plates. Sheet size: 16 x 39 cm. Image size to the plate marks: 13 x 32 cm. (Sizes vary between 1 and 2 cm.) Printed in black on thick sheets of wove paper. Near fine with light soiling to the edges. A very rare collection of elaborately decorated letters and numerals, designed and engraved by Gius Lanzani, "Incisore Calligrafo," in collaboration with a team of other Italian artists and engravers.The collection consists of three sets. Each decorated letter and numeral features an elaborate allegorical design. Obvious examples include: Adam & Eve, the Three Fates, the The Seven Deadly Sins (for numerals 2, 3, and 7); and a Gallows, a Lion, and the Devil (for the letters G, L, and D). Most, however, are not easy to decipher. Contemporary situations and events are also depicted, both humorous and allegorical, such as Waterloo for W. Thus we know that the plates were made sometime after 1815. Stunning calligraphy, beautifully designed, engraved, and printed. Very scarce. OCLC locates no copies. A list with more detailed descriptions of each set is available. .

        AUTOGRAPH QUOTATION SIGNED (AQS)

      5 July 1815 - A one-page (8" x 10") lengthy AUTOGRAPH QUOTATION SIGNED by Wordsworth from a poem by Fulke Greville (Lord Brooke), a contemporary and friend of poet Philip Sidney. In full: "The chief use, then in Man of that he knowsIs his painstaking for the good of all; Not fleshly weeping for our own made woes, Not laughing from a melancholy gall, Not hating from a Soul that overflows In bitterness, breathed forth from inward thrall; But sweetly rather to ease, loose, or bind, As need requires, this frail, fallen human kind. Lord Brooke./Peter House July 5th 1815/Wm Wordsworth." It is clear why Wordsworth might have chosen these words of Brooke's--"Man's Service" from A TREATISE OF HUMANE LEARNING--to write as the two shared the notion that while knowledge might bring happiness, it also increases susceptibility to suffering and self-torment. Matted and framed with an engraved portrait of Wordsworth to an overall size of 22" x 18". Fulke Greville (1554-1628) was a close friend of Sir Philip Sidney and a great patron of letters. Most of his works were not published until after his murder by a servant who thought he had been omitted from his master’s will. Some believe Greville is the true author of several plays attributed to William Shakespeare. Not examined out of the frame but appears to be Fine [Attributes: Signed Copy]
