        BABBAGE (Charles) An Essay towards the Calculus of Functions, pp. 389-423. Presented within the complete volume of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Vol 105,

      * "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). * Presented within the complete volume of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Vol 105, Parts I and II (complete), bound in one volume for 1815, comprising, vi, 26, 454, (8)pp large quarto, with 16 engraved plates (some folding), morocco backed library cloth with a neat unlinked library name stamp on general title, foot of last leaves and occasionally elsewhere, occasional inked library stamp, some occasional marginal light browning, a good copy, London, Bulmer, sold by Nicol, printers to the Royal Society,1815. * A FULL LIST OF CONTENTS OF THIS VOLUME SENT ON REQUEST.

(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.

A list with more detailed descriptions of each set is available. .

        Qualified Horses and Unqualified Riders,

      1815. Alken's First Published WorkThe Comic Foibles of Amateur Horsemen[ALKEN, Henry]. Qualified Horses and Unqualified Riders, or the reverse of Sporting Phrases taken from the Work entitled Indispensable Accomplishments... [by] Ben Tally Ho, an occasional Visitor in Leicestershire. London: S. & J. Fuller, 1st Septr, 1815.First edition, watermarked J. Whatman 1815. Oblong folio (10 3/4 x 14 1/2 in; 270 x 362 mm). Engraved title and seven hand-colored engraved plates. uncut.Late nineteenth century crushed crimson morocco over marbled boards ruled in gilt. Spine with four raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt. Original printed gray wrappers bound-in. Occasional light smudges to margins, damp-stain to lower right corner of last plate, not affecting image, otherwise an excellent copy of Alken's first published work. A second edition appeared in 1821. Though Siltzer notes an earlier edition of 1811, no other bibliographer has noted such and there are no records of an 1811 edition found in international institutional libraries, nor in auction records within the last thirty-five years. The issue under notice is found in only six libraries worldwide. Alken's satiric reposte to Frankland's Indispensable Accomplishments, taking the Frankland ("Billesdon Coplow") scenes and captions and turning them on their ear, specifically on the rider's behind as he's tossed hither and yon by a horse clearly more in control of things than the rider, who is finally carried off the field of comic disaster by his friends.The Plates:1. Going along a slapping pace...2. Topping a Flight of Rails...3. Charging an Ox-fence...with good Success.4. Got in and getting out...very clever.5. Facing a Brook. Verifying the old Adage, look before you leap.6. Swishing at a Rasper...7. Returning home in Triumph. He disdain'd a Slothful Easy Life, so took to hunting.Schwerdt I, p. 20. Siltzer, p. 69. Tooley 44.

        Monuments Anciens et Modernes de l'Hindoustan

      Paris: Didot, [1815-] 1821. 2 volumes in 3, small folio. (14 7/8 x 10 3/4 inches). Text: half-titles in each volume, folding table in vol. 1, 4pp errata and 2pp list of plates in rear of vol. 2. Atlas: engraved title with a large vignette after Henry Salt, 3 engraved maps hand-colored in outline, 143 engraved plates (12 hand-colored, and including 24 plates after Thomas Daniell). Contemporary French red calf-backed red paper boards, flat spines in six compartments divided by gilt roll tools, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments. A beautiful copy of the very rare large-paper first edition of Langles definitive work on India, profusely illustrated and including plates after Thomas Daniell. A contemporary review described this work as follows: "Doubtless it was a vast undertaking to give a complete description of the immense country of Hindostan; to trace its history; to set forth the religion and the manners of its inhabitants; to study and to design its antique monuments and its populous cities: such an undertaking required the united knowledge and talents of the geographer, the philologist, the historian, the philosopher, and the archaeologist. Several estimable artists have already made us acquainted with the picturesque views and the romantic sites of this interesting country, with the various and singular costumes of the Hindoos, and their prodigious monuments. Many learned Indianists have developed the mysteries, till then but imperfectly known, of the Brahmanic theology; and the most celebrated travellers, judicious antiquaries, and well-informed officers, have in almost every part extended their inquiries to the most minute details of topography. However, not one of them has been able to present us with a complete view of the country, whose several parts they have described. Far be it from us to refuse the well-deserved need of praise to the major part of these authors; but one man alone, a man of superior talent, placed in a situation which enabled him to take in with a single glance, to collate, compare, and digest into one body all the materials which had been furnished by so many and such able writers, has succeeded in forming them into one beautiful and symmetrical edifice. M. Langles is the person to whom we allude" (Port Folio, vol. XVI, July to December 1823, p. 252). Langles was the most noted Orientalist in France and served as the keeper of the Oriental manuscripts at the Royal Library. Published in 26 parts beginning in 1813, Brunet cites three issues: regular paper at 15fr per part, papier velin at 24fr per part and grande papier velin at 36fr per part. The illustrations notably include 24 plates after Thomas Daniell, as well as other views of ancient monuments after Forbes and others. The colour plates are largely after Indian miniatures in the Royal Library collection and are richly hand-coloured and heightened with gold. Brunet III, 819-820.
