        Lectures on the physiology, zoology and natural history of man

      London: J Callow, 1819. First edition. <p>Lawrence, William (1783-1867). Lectures on physiology, zoology and the natural history of man. 8vo. xxiii, [1], 579, [1]pp., plus 16-page publisher&#39;s catalogue. 12 plates. London: J. Callow, 1819. 226 x 138 mm. (uncut and partially unopened). Boards ca. 1819, recased, light wear. Minor foxing, but very good.</p><p>First Edition of the highly controversial Natural History of Man, which sets forth Lawrence&#39;s radical-and to our eyes, remarkably advanced-ideas concerning evolution and heredity. Arguing that theology and metaphysics had no place in science, Lawrence relied instead on empirical evidence in his examination of variation in animals and man, and the dissemination of variation through inheritance. On the question of cause, Lawrence disagreed with those who ascribed variation to external factors such as climate, and rejected the Lamarckian notion of the inheritance of acquired characteristics. His understanding of the mechanics of heredity was well ahead of his time: he stated that "offspring inherit only [their parents&#39;] connate qualities and not any of the acquired qualities," and that the "signal diversities which constitute differences of race in animals . . . can only be explained by two principles . . . namely, the occasional production of an offspring with different characters from those of the parents, as a native or congenital variety; and the propagation of such varieties by generation" (p. 510).</p><p> While Lawrence did not grasp the role that natural selection plays in the origination of new species, he recognized that "selections and exclusions," including geographical separation, were the means of change and adaptation in all animals, including humans. He noted that men as well as animals can be improved by selective breeding, and pointed out that sexual selection was responsible for enhancing the beauty of the aristocracy:</p> "The great and noble have generally had it more in their power than others to select the beauty of nations in marriage; and thus . . . they have distinguished their order, as much by elegant proportions of person, as by its prerogatives in society" (p. 454).</p><p> Lawrence investigated the human races in detail, and insisted that the proper approach to this study was a zoological one, since the question of variation in mankind "cannot be settled from the Jewish Scriptures; nor from other historical records" (p. 243). </p><p>The Natural History of Man came under fire from conservatives and clergy for its materialist approach to human life, and Lawrence was accused of atheism for having dared to challenge the relevance of Scripture to science. In 1822 the Court of Chancery ruled the Natural History blasphemous, thus revoking the work&#39;s copyright. Lawrence was forced to withdraw the book, a fact reflected in the comparative rarity of the first edition: OCLC cites three copies, at the University of Pennsylvania, Cambridge University and the National Library of Israel, and there are also copies at the British Library and the Library of Congress. However, the book&#39;s notoriety was such that several publishers issued their own pirated editions, keeping the work in print for several decades. A list of the London editions of Lawrence&#39;s work, taken from OCLC, follows:</p><p>1819 J. Callow (authorized)</p><p>1819 s.n. (?)</p><p>1822 W. Benbow</p><p>1822 J. Smith</p><p>1822 Kaygill & Price (unillustrated)</p><p>1823 R. Carlile</p><p>1823 J. Smith</p><p>1834 J. T. Cox</p><p>1838 J. Taylor</p><p>1840 J. Taylor</p><p>1844 J. Taylor</p><p>1848 H. G. Bohn</p><p>1866 Bell & Daldy</p><p>Editions were also published in Edinburgh and America.</p><p>Darwin owned one of the unauthorized editions listed above, the one issued by "the notorious shoemaker-turned-publisher William Benbow, who financed his flaming politics by selling pornographic prints" (Desmond & Moore, Darwin, p. 253). Darwin was obviously impressed with Lawrence&#39;s work, citing it five times in The Descent of Man (1871). 34693</p>

        Travels in England, France, Spain and the Barbary States in the years 1813-14 and 15

      Kirk and Mercein 1819 - With engraved portrait frontis of the author, vi, (1) Errata, 431 pages, xlvii Appendix. Plates include: full page engraved view of Algiers, folding plate of engraving of The Fortress of Goletta near Tunis, full page engraving of Merchant Slave & Arab, and full page engraving of Abdallah American Drogaman. Foxing. The blank preceding frontispiece has two signatures and a clipping of some bookseller's listing: Daniel [?]i[?] Jr. 1820. The book is complete and has a very attractive modern full leather binding. Noah served as U.S. Consul to Tunis and was the first American Jew to receive an overseas diplomatic assignment. Descriptions of daily life and social customs of the Muslims and Jews comprise a valuable window into the intrigues of that historical time. Noah (1785-1851) was a lawyer, playwright, and journalist. He was born in Philadelphia of Portuguese-Jewish ancestry. "In 1813 [he] was appointed consul to Tunis, with a special mission to Algers. He was instructed to negotiate for the release of some Americans held as prisoners by the Algerine pirates. On May 23, 1813, he sailed from Charleston, but his vessel being captured by the British, he was taken to England and detained two months. In October he arrived in Cadiz, where he contracted with Richard R. Keene, an American who had become a Spanish subject, to effect the release of the twelve Americans After being detained in France and Spain for more than a year, Noah finally arrived in Tunis. On July 30, 1815, he received a letter from James Monroe, secretary of state, revoking his commission and hinting at irregularities in his accounts. Monroe's treatment of Noah was never satisfactorily explained, though his association with Keene, who had been accused of treason, was doubtless detrimental. In January 1817, however, Noah received a letter from the Department of State which vindicated his conduct and returned several thousand dollars due him in the enterprise which resulted in the release of the American captives" (DAB).

        1819 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT 'POOR RATE' BOOK FOR DEWSBURY WEST YORKSHIRE

      DEWSBURY WEST YORKSHIRE ENGLAND UK WAKEFIELD LEEDS 1819 - On offer is an original 1819 'DEWSBURY POOR RATE BOOK' [a book of 'poor rates' collected yearly from property owners to fund assistance to the needy of a parish] and besides being for the most part full included is a handwritten letter dated 1941 explaining that the book had come from the John Tweedale Settlement Trust (land at Dewsbury, West Yorkshire, England). Research provides that in 1864 John Tweedale takes the position of Lord Mayor of Dewsbury. In 1869 Joseph Tweedale Rawsthorne does the same. This book is superbly placed in early 19th centruy Dewsbury history as evidenced by this online entry: 'In the early 1800s Dewsbury was one of the centres of Luddite opposition to industrialization in which workers retaliated against the onset of mechanization and smashed the new machinery which threatened their way of life. In the 1830s Dewsbury was also one of the centres of Chartist agitation. The C vote to the working classes. In August 1838, after a speech by Chartist leader Fergus O'Connell, a mob of between five and seven thousand people besieged the Dewsbury Poor Law Guardians in the town's Royal Hotel. The mob had to be dispersed by troops. Trouble again flared in 1840 when radical agitators seized control of the town, again troops were called in and stationed in the town to maintain order. This radical tradition left a legacy in the political life of the town, in fact the town's first elected MP in 1867 was John Simon, a Jewish lawyer from Jamaica and a Liberal.' Nine signatures of the Church Wardens and Overseers dated the book as stated. 26.5cms / 10.5" high x 14cms / 5.5" wide x 2cms / 0.75" deep.

      820 and 1825 - London - Darton, Harvey and Darton 1819 - A uniformly bound collection of these scarce works by Maria Hack with engravings to frontispieces of each volume. First editions. In four volumes. The volumes are as follows:Grecian Stories: Take From the Works of Eminent Historians with Explanatory Conversations (1819); with a preface to front dated Chichester 1819 with a conclusion to each section in the form of an explanatory conversation.

Hack wrote these stories withthe intention of illustrating some of the stories from Grecian and English history, intended for young people. Maria Hack (1777 - 1844) was an English writer of educational books for children. According to a younger brother, the poet Bernard Barton, Maria was an oracle to him in his youth. Her interest in education began with her own family and soon extended into writing. The earliest of many books is thought to have been First Lessons in English Grammar (1812). Winter Evenings (1818) teaches geography through travellers' tales told to two children. The same approach was taken in Grecian Stories (1819) and English Stories (182025). Others of her textbooks covered geology and optics. Some of were still being reprinted in the 1870s. With previous owner's bookplates to front pastedowns of first three volumes.

        WORKS

      Macmillan, Chapman & Hall and others - We offer for sale a collection of the works of the famous 19th century novelist and poet, Charles Kingsley (1819-1875). This lot of 42 books, contains 33 individual titles; being all of Kingsley's prose works, most of his sermons, and all but one of his books of poetry. Each volume was uniformly bound for the noted British bibliophile, Francis Frederick Fox in handsome 3/4 polished calf over marbled boards, with the top edge gilt, and the endpapers marbled. On the spine of each volume are three coloured leather labels; the first (top) of which states "Kingsley's Works", the second (middle) stating the title of the individual volume, and the third (bottom) stating the year of publication. The armorial bookplate of Francis Frederick Fox is either inserted as a cancel leaf, or the bookplate is tipped-in. The binding of each volume is signed "William George, Bristol", being the binder, publisher and bookseller more commonly encountered as "William George's Sons". All publishers' advertising pages, normally found at the end of most of the first editions of these titles, have been removed by the binder. We acquired this collection from the estate of the late Anglican divine, Dr. James A. Brown, who studied at Oxford University shortly after the end of World War II and who, presumably, acquired this set during his years of residence in England. Each title is either a first edition, or an early printing, and the collection includes all of Kingsley's most famous works, including Hypatia, The Water Babies, and Westward Ho! (each of these titles in this collection is a first edition). The set has, over the years, suffered some wear-and-tear to the bindings. Photos of the set are available. However, the contents of all volumes are in very good condition, with no significant defects. The complete list of titles is available upon request. Set out below are the basic details of the first eleven titles: 1) Alexandria and her Schools. Four Lectures Delivered at the Philosophical Institution, Edinburgh. With a Preface. Macmillan, Cambridge, 1854, first edition. 2) All Saints' Day and other sermons. Kegan Paul & Co., London, 1878, second edition. 3) Alton Locke, Tailor and Poet. An Autobiography. Chapman and Hall, London, 1851, the second edition in two volumes of the author's first novel. Early British editions now very scarce. 4) Andromeda and Other Poems. John W. Parker, London, 1858, first edition of the author's second book of poems. 5) At Last: A Christmas in the West Indies. Macmillan, London and New York, 1871, the first edition in two volumes, "with illustrations". 6) David: Four Sermons preached before the University of Cambridge. Macmillan, Cambridge and London, 1865, first edition. Very scarce item. None currently offered for sale. WorldCat shows only one institutional holding. 7) Glaucus; or, The Wonders of the Shore.

Parker, London, 1859, first edition. 9) Health and Education, Daldy, Isbister & Co., London, 1875, first edition, second printing. 10) The Heroes; or, Greek Fairy Tales for my children.

        De l'auscultation médiate

      J.-A. Brosson & J.-S. Chaude, Paris 1819 - The StethoscopeLaennec, René Théophile Hyacinthe (1781-1826). De l'auscultation médiate ou traité dudagnostic des maladies des poumons et du coeur . . . 2 vols., 8vo. [5], viii-xlviii, 456, [8]; xvi, 472pp. 4 folding engraved plates numbered I-IV. Paris: J.-A. Brosson & J.-S. Chaudé, 1819. 204 x 124 mm. 19th century quarter morocco, boards, gilt spines (a little faded). Minor foxing, one plate number trimmed, but very good.First Edition, First State, with the original cancellandum leaf a*2. Laennec's invention of the stethoscope, which he announced in his De l'Auscultation médiate, provided the first adequate method for diagnosing diseases of the thorax, and represented the greatest advance in physical diagnosis between Auenbrugger's percussion and Röntgen's discovery of x-rays. Laennec used his new tool to study the sounds made by the movements of the heart and lungs, for which he invented a terminology. He described pneumothorax, established the fact that all phthisis is tuberculous, distinguished pneumonia from bronchitis and from pleuritis, and gave descriptions of bronchitis, edema of the lungs, emphysema, tuberculosis and lung cancer that have in many respects remained unsurpassed until today. He also provided the first description of chronic interstitial hepatitis, for which he coined the term "cirrhosis"; the disease is often called "Laennec's cirrhosis." The four folding plates illustrate Laennec's stethoscope (a short wooden tube), pathologic conditions of the lung, and deformity of the chest from chronic latent pleurisy.P. J. Bishop, Laennec's bibliographer, states that "the first edition of Laennec's De l'auscultation médiate was published on 15 August 1819, in a first printing of 2100 copies, with a second impression of 1500"; however, he does not indicate whether these printings correspond to the states with and without the original leaf a*2.

        British Institution for promoting the Fine Arts in the United Kingdom... [including] Catalogue of the Works of British Artists place in the gallerys of the British Institution, Pall-Mall

      London: W. Bulmer, 1819. Quarto, 28pp., folding plate, uncut; a little dusted and some foxing, very good, in the original plain paper wrappers, manuscript &#39;1819&#39; in ink to front. A second rarity from the British Institution, again listing paintings by John Glover. As with the prior item in this list, these exhibition catalogues are only very rarely offered for sale, and are scarce in libraries. An attractive inclusion in this issue is the folding engraved plate, which shows simple sketches of many of the eminent visitors to the exhibition. This particular catalogue dates from 1819, after Glover&#39;s fruitful sketching tours of the Lake District and Wales. As a result, it is not surprising to learn that he exhibited two large canvases here, the first his view of &#39;Tintern Abbey&#39;, much beloved of the Romantics, and a second of &#39;Durham Cathedral&#39;. The painting of Tintern Abbey may well be the same painting he is known to have exhibited at the Royal Academy in 1818, where it was listed as "Superb in ruins, still the holy pile, etc." Interestingly, the great historian of the RA Algernon Graves attributes the painting to Glover&#39;s eldest son John Richardson Glover, but recent work appears to confirm the work was executed by the elder Glover; indeed, the attribution here to "J. Glover" would seem to strongly support this thesis. Regarding the second Glover painting listed here, it is known that he sold a vast painting of Durham Cathedral for 500 guineas in 1812, and that he painted the subject again in 1838. This 1819 canvas, listed as a modest 2&#39;3" by 4&#39;3", would appear to be a third version. Among the many other contributors listed here are also Constable, William Glover, Richard Westall, and Samuel Prout, uncle of the more famous John Skinner Prout.

Dopo la pubblicazione di questo trattato, l'economista lionese, membro del Tribunato nel 1799, fu dal Primo Console privato della carica politica per le idee troppo liberali espresse nel suo libro e dovette attendere fino al 1814, dopo la caduta dellImpero, per poterne far uscire la seconda edizione. Questo importantissimo trattato sarà poi ristampato ben 32 volte e tradotto in tutte le principali lingue. Say, vero padre della scuola ottimistica liberale, divulgò e sviluppò le dottrine smithiane in senso ancor più liberistico, sostenendo l'improduttività della spesa pubblica, la libera coniazione e rifiutando qualsiasi ingerenza statale in materia economica, polemizzando vivacemente con Ricardo, Malthus e Sismondi. Joseph Alois Schumpeter, nella sua fondamentale "History of Economic Analysis" (New York, 1954), definisce il testo di Say "the most important of the links in the chain that leads from Cantillon and Turgot to Walras" e ne rivendica la continuità rispetto alla tradizione dell'economia politica francese di Sismondi e di Cournot. Say fu il vero padre della scuola ottimistica liberale, sviluppata in modo ancora più incline al "laissez-faire" rispetto alle teorie smithiane, sostenitore dell'improduttività della spesa pubblica, della libera coniazione e del rifiuto di ogni ingerenza dello stato nel ciclo economico. Cfr., per le varie edizioni dell'opera: Kress, B.4729. Cat. Einaudi, 5118 e sgg. Palgrave, III, 357-358: "J. B. Say is usually ranked, with A. Smith and Ricardo, amongst the fathers of economic science.It is he, more than any oyher writer, who impressed on political economy the character of a natural science". Brunet, V, 177. Graesse, VI, 287. Cfr. Carpenter, Economic Bestsellers, XXXIII (1). Goldsmith, 18616. Teilhac, 377. Macchioro, Studi di storia del pensiero economico, pp. 103-113: Cossa, Introduzione allo studio dell'economia politica, pp. 327-30; Coquelin & Guillaumin, II, p. 649. Schumpeter, pp. 492-93. Mc Culloch, pp. 21-22: "His principal merit in a scientific point of view consists in his showing, in a more satisfactory manner than it had been done previously, that effective demand depends upon production".
