        An Inquiry into the Nature and Causes of the Wealth of Nations. With a Life of the Author. Also, a View of the Doctrine of Smith, Com[ared with That of the French Economists

      London: Printed for William Allason and J. Maynard and W. Blair, 1819 An attractive early edition of Smith's masterpiece, first published in 1776. Contemporary mottled sheep, rebacked to style in modern calf, gilt spine with black morocco labels, new endpapers. . Three volumes, octavo. . Corners worn, some light foxing. Light marginal dampstain in preliminaries of Volume III. Overall a very good copy. The history of economic theory up to the end of the nineteenth century consists of two parts: the mercantilist phase which was based not so much on a doctrine as on a system of practice which grew out of social conditions; and the second phase which saw the development of the theory that the individual had the right to be unimpeded in the exercise of economic activity. While it cannot be said that Smith invented the latter theory – the physiocrats had already suggested it and Turgot in particular had constructed an organised study of social wealth – his work is the first major expression of it…' (Printing and the Mind of Man, 221, describing the first edition).

        An Historical Geography of the Old and New TestamentIn Two Volumes

      Oxford - Clarendon Press, 1819. Oxford - Clarendon Press, 1819 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A highly descriptive account into the geographical mapping of places listed within the Old and New Testaments. Featuring nine folding maps, and one folding plate to volume one. As well as Volume two having four folding maps, and three folding illustrated plates. In their original publishers' bindings. Edward Wells was an English mathematician, geographer, and controversial theologian. From 1709 to 1719, Wells produced a Greek critical edition of the New Testament, published in Oxford. Wells drew from the variant readings collated in the edition of John Mill in the construction of the text. While Mill's edition had included the most thorough critical apparatus up to its time, the actual text was a reprint of that of Stephanus. Wells' edition was thus the first to offer the complete Greek New Testament while moving away from the Textus Receptus and toward what is now considered the standard critical text, Nestle-Aland. These text's represent the geographical mapping, of the places described within his translation. Complete in two volumes. Condition: In original publishers bindings. Externally, rubbing and loss to the extremities, and spines. Some spotting and sunning to the spines, as well as light marks to the boards. Both joints to volume one are starting. Internally, generally firmly bound, with some leaves working loose. Bright throughout, with the occasional spot, and handling mark. Some curling to pages and plates, although allplates are complete.

His works include The Village (1783), Poems (1807), The Borough (1810), and his poetry collections Tales (1812) and Tales of the Hall (1819). Crabbe also had a lifelong interest in naturalism, entomology and botany, and was particularly known for his study of beetles. Condition: Inhalf calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally, rubbed.

Contemporary black half calf, green marbled boards, spine gilt in compartments, titles and decorations to spine gilt. Contemporary owner signature to front free endpaper in all volumes but VIII. Boards lightly rubbed, leather a little scuffed, minor wear along edges and top of joints, edges tanned, paper toned; inner hinges cracked but firm in Volumes I and VIII. A very good set. A new edition of The Spectator, one of the first British periodicals. Founded by Addison and Steele, the publication appeared daily during its original run, 1 March 1711-6 December 1712. It was later revived, without Addison's involvement, running for six months in 1714 as a triweekly magazine. These eight volumes collect the 555 issues published during the first run together with the 80 issues of the second. Appealing to the growing numbers of middle class traders and shop keepers in London, Addison estimated it to have been read by a tenth of the city's population, primarily in coffee shops. The content was innovative and made the gentlemanly culture of letters accessible to a wide audience for the first time. The Spectator was reprinted in book form many times and remained popular: 'hundreds of editions appeared over the next two centuries, there were selections and translations into several languages, and its pages were dotted with familiar sayings which found their way into every dictionary of quotations' (ODNB).

Anker Kyster.<br>Förste binds titelblad med lille rep. i nedre höjre hjörne, ellers et meget paent og velholdt eksemplar med ganske fa pletter. * Just Mathias Thiele (1795-1874), der gengav sit stof med folkets egen fortaellemade og i sagnenes egen stil, blev med disse samlinger, foregangsmand for Svend Grundtvig, Evald Tang Kristensen, Axel Olrik og Hans Ellekilde.

      Á PARIS, CHEZ J.A. BROSSON ET J.S. CHAUDÉ, LIBRAIRES, RUE PIERRE-SARRAZIN N.9, 1819 2 voll.ITALIANO Legatura in brossura originale, con lievi restauri integrativi ad uno dei dorsi che presentano un tassello cartaceo editoriale. I due volumi sono contenuti in cassetta astuccio in mezza pelle con titolo su tassello al dorso. XLVI (mal numerate XLVIII) pp., 456, [8] 4 tavole ripiegate in fine, XVI, 472. Edizione originale, rarissima, e prima tiratura. L'autore fu inventore dello stetoscopio e fondò la moderna pneumologia fondata sull'auscultazione dei polmoni. L'invenzione di questo strumento rivoluzionò la medicina. Nel testo l'autore descrive come, sfruttando la trasmissione della voce, i segni della respirazione, l'insorgenza dei rantoli e della circolazione, si identifichino e classifichino quasi trenta segni di auscultazione. Ricrea ex novo tutta la patologia del torace, in primo luogo le tubercolosi, integrando il lavoro di Bayle. La grandezza e l'originalità della scoperta fu nel trasformare un processo relativamente banale, l'auscultazione polmonare, in un metodo che consentì attraverso i segni acustici l'accesso alla diagnosi di lesioni anatomiche situate all'interno del corpo. Esemplare con al primo volume nelle prime 30 pagine gora all'angolo superiore esterno, a scemare, che riprende sporadicamente qua e là, così come qualche fioritura. Alle ultime pagine modesta gora laterale che ha interessato la piega centrale delle 4 tavole al fine, con piccolo restauro integrativo di una modesta porzione di margine alluvionato. Il secondo volume molto meglio conservato, salvo una lieve gora interna alla pagina 451. Esemplare genuino in barbe, con la sua bella brossura originale.

        BALNEOLOGIE - Das Bad Lostorf.

      Aarau, 1819.. 8°. Titelbl. und 30 S. Mit lith. Titelvignette. Marmorierter Umschlag d.Z.,. Das nordöstlich von Olten am südlichen Jurafuss gelegene Bad Lostorf (525m ü.M.) erlebte in seiner traditionsreichen Geschichte immer wieder turbulente Zeiten. Mehrere Besitzerwechsel, dubioses Spekulantentum, Konkurse und ein Grossbrand (1966) hatten das Thermalbad mehrmals an den Rand des Ruins gebracht (Aargauer Tagblatt, 5.Feb. 1993). Die Heilkraft des Wassers war schon zu Römerzeit (250-300 v.Chr.) bekannt. Der Solothurner Geschichtsschreiber Haffner berichtet 1666 in seinem "Solothurnischen Schauplatz", dass im Jahre 1412 der "Gesundbrunnen Lostorf" gefunden wurde. Er nannte ihn ein "köstliches Gliederbad". 1608 wurden die Quellen von Ulalricus Epiponus erstmals ausführlich beschrieben. 1484/86 entstanden die Gebäulichkeiten des Thermalbades. Nach verschiedenen Pächtern lenkten verschiedene Generationen der Familie Guldimann die Geschicke des Bades. Seit 1412 ist die Gipsquelle bekannt, kurz nach Erscheinen vorliegender Schrift (1825) kommt auch die hier bereits beschriebene Schwefelquelle dazu. Ab 1830 existieren erstaunlich genaue Analysen dieser stärksten Schwefelquelle der Welt (84,93%). Um 1830 war Lostorf eines der grössten und bekanntesten Bäder seiner Art für Patienten mit chronischer Arthritis und Rheuma. - Selten. - Innendeckel und Falz später verstärkt, Titelblatt seitlich beschnitten, Oberrand leicht beschnitten (ohne Textverlust), etwas stockfleckig. - Schmassmann, Die Mineral-und Thermalwässer von Bad Lostorf.

        An elementary treatise on mechanics

      Cambridge and London: J. Deighton & Sons, and G. and W. B. Whittaker, 1819. Cambridge and London: J. Deighton & Sons, and G. and W. B. Whittaker, 1819. First Edition. Half calf. Very good. First Edition. Half calf. 8vo in 4s (215 × 140 mm), pp. xxii, 348; 15 folding illustrative plates; some damp-staining to the folded plates; &#8216;Vol. 1.'; scratched from title-page; very good in contemporary red half calf over marbled boards, a little rubbed, gilt decorative panelled spine, black morocco lettering-piece. First edition of Whewell';s treatise on mechanics, one of the first works of mathematics in English to use the Leibnizian notation for calculus.While Whewell (1794-1866) was something of a polymath, and wrote on subjects as varied as morality, political economy, theology, and the possibilities of extraterrestrial life, his first passion was mathematics, and this, his first book, followed directly on his student career at Cambridge where he was Second Wrangler in 1816, President of the Cambridge Union Society the same year, and then a fellow and tutor at Trinity from 1817 and 1818 respectively. Whewell began his work on mechanics in 1818 and in a letter to John Herschel (1792-1871) dated 19 June of that year he expressed his interest in the mechanics of the Flemish military engineer Simon Stevin, while at the same time recounting his progress on &#8216;my Statics'; and his intention to publish it separately from another volume on dynamics (the first edition is something of a compromise).What makes Whewell';s work significant more than anything else, however, is his use of Leibnizian notation for differential and integral calculus. In this he was heavily influenced by the Cambridge Analytical Society, founded in 1812 by Robert Woodhouse and Edward Bromhead. Other founder members included Charles Babbage, John Herschel and George Peacock. The Society';s aim was nothing less than the introduction of Leibniz';s notation in favour of Newton';s, which had been in use in England up to that time in spite of its cumbersome handling in comparison to the continental system. &#8216;The treatise may be considered as one which, in conjunction with the publications of Peacock and Herschel, introduced the continental mathematics, in order to the replace the system of fluxions which had so long prevailed at Cambridge. A copious account of both of the elementary and higher parts of Statics is given, and the Differential and Integral Calculus are very freely used.'; (Isaac Todhunter, William Whewell, D.D., master of Trinity college, Cambridge. An account of his writings with selections from his literary and scientific correspondence, I, 1876, p. 13)Whewell';s work was well received, especially, it must be said, by his Cambridge colleagues. &#8216;In the notice of Dr Whewell published by the Royal Astronomical Society [founded in 1820, founder members including Babbage and Herschel], the following opinion is pronounced on the treatise: "It was a work of great value, strikingly logical and accurate. It is considered by one of our most eminent living mathematicians to have been very far in advance of any then existing text-book in the clearness and correctness of the treatment of bodies in contact, and in the precision with which the assumptions involved in the laws of motion and the composition of forces are stated and illustrated." Sir John Herschel quotes nearly the whole of this opinion of the work, which he assigns to "one excellently qualified to judge of its merits."'; (Todhunter, op. cit., I, p. 13)A second edition appeared in 1824 &#8216;with numerous improvements and additions';, as well as a Syllabus of an elementary treatise of mechanics. With corrections and additions in 1821, comprising an abstract of the work in fifty octavo pages. Later editions then appeared in 1828, 1833, 1836, 1841, and 1847. While the reference to Vol. 1 was removed in the second edition, what would otherwise have been the second volume of the work appeared in 1823 as A treatise on dynamics. Over the coming decades Whewell made numerous revisions to both these works, each edition, in Todhunter';s estimation, almost comprising a new beginning, such were the advances then being made in mechanics. These numerous editions and amendments are testimony to the great popularity of Whewell';s work as a teaching aid, notwithstanding the reservations Todhunter expressed about the felicity with which Whewell presented his subject.

Timoshenko, History of strength of materials, p. 223.COPAC records UK institutional copies at the BL, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, the National Trust, St. Andrews and UCL.
