        Traité de la Géométrie Descriptive - [ Suivi de : ] Planches.

      Mme Vve Courcier 1819 Planches de l'Atlas imprimées par Tardieu, 1 vol. in-4 relié , rel. d'époque demi-basane marron, Mme Vve Courcier, Paris, 1819, 1 f. blanc, XX-355 pp. (avec insertion de 2 ff. supplémentaires modifiés, correspondant aux pp. 203 à 206) et 8 pp. (catalogue) ; titre, 8 pp. et 60 planches hors texte (dont 3 pl. dépliantes) Edition originale. Exemplaire bien complet de l'atlas de 60 planches gravée par Tardieu ; surtout, le présent exemplaire propose deux états différents des ff. paginés 203-204 et 205-206 (les feuillets supplémentaires sont insérés à la fin des tables) : la modification concerne les paragraphes 508, 509 et 510, relatifs au problème des tangentes aux intersections de surface. Etat très satisfaisant (dos frotté avec 2 petits taches d'encre, petite fente à un mors, lég. rouss). Elève de Monge et de Hachette, Louis Léger (1784-1864) prit la suite de ses maîtres à Polytechnique dans le domaine de la géométrie descriptive. Comme le précise le Rapport introductif de l'Institut de France, cosigné par Prony, Fourier et Arago, "l'expérience avait conduit de bonne heure aux procédés d'après lesquels les architectes, les tailleurs de pierre et les charpentiers construisent leurs épures ; mais ces méthodes n'ont été réunies en corps de doctrine et débassées de tout empirisme, que de nos jours. C'est à M. Monge qu'on en est redevable". Les Leçons de Géométrie descriptive de Monge étaient néanmoins insatisfaisantes pour les artistes peu familier des méthodes Mathématiques, et le présent ouvrage s'emploie à remédier à ce défaut, notamment par l'usage de planches parfaitement dessinées offrant "dans les plus petits détails, toutes les constructions qu'il faut exécuter pour arriver à la solution finale". Poggendorff, II, 1667 Français

        Nouveau Système de Minéralogie. Traduit du Suédois.

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1819. 8vo (200 x 124 mm). pp. (4), vi, 314, (1). Contemporary calf, gilt lettered label (somewhat rubbed). First published in Swedish in 1814. First French edition, of this famous mineralogical classic. 'In 1812 he received a gift of a large number of minerals which he later decided to classify. The methods of mineral classification existing at the time were based on appearance and physical properties. These seemed highly unsystematic to Berzelius. He concluded from his analytical experience that a logical classification could be based only on chemical composition. In his original system, first published in 1814, he arranged the minerals in terms of their basic constituents, although he later revised this and placed chief emphasis on the acid component. Like many of Berzelius' innovations, his system of mineral classification was at first received with some hostility, but this was gradually overcome. During his visit to Paris in 1818 he won the approval of Haüy, the leading mineralogist of the day, whose own system was based on physical properties' (DSB). Ward & Carozzi 202; Hoover 122.

        Anatome Testudinis Europaeae. [Pars I].

      Vilnae, impensis auctoris, 1819. Folio (515 x 320mm). pp. vi, 74, with 19 (pls. 1-17, 15 bis and 16 bis) engraved plates. Publisher's printed wrappers, title within an ornamented border. A second part was published in 1821. A complete copy has pages (6), 179 with 39 engraved plates. This work is very rare. Dr. W. Junk in his long career as a natural history bookseller only had one copy, of which he made a reprint in 1902. "This work which had been published in hardly 80 copies is perhaps the rarest zoological book. During 30 years' occupation with scientific literature I have seen only one or two copies... The copy quoted above of the genuine edition - bought by me at the sale of Milne-Edwards' library - served for this reprint and is therefore not in good condition; but it is thoroughly complete" (Junk catalogue dated 1910). A major work on the anatomy of the turtle. The text pages are printed on smaller sheets 450 x 280, both plates and text are uncut. A very well preserved copy. Junk, Rara I, p. 69; Nissen ZBI, 446.

        On the Principles of Political Economy, and Taxation. Second Edition

      London: John Murray, 1819 Revised second edition of this major classic in the history of political economy by the first "scientific economist" (PMM). While most of the changes from the first edition are of a minor nature, there are some significant ones which demonstrate his reaction to contemporary comments. One of a 1000 copies printed. Octavo. Original grey boards, uncut, skillfully rebacked with silk moiré cloth, with the publisher's printed label preserved. Some light dustsoiling, rear free endpaper replaced. A very good copy. The fundamental ground-work of the Principles is based on the theory that, given free competition in trade, the exchange value of commodities will be determined by the amount of labour expended in production: not a wholly original thesis, nor one capable of absolute expression, but one which was given new force by the theory of distribution with which Ricardo reinforced it. This has been summarized thus: 'the demand for food determines the margin of cultivation; this margin determines rent; the amount necessary to maintain the labourer determines the wages; the difference between the amount produced by a given quantity of labour determines profit.' Ricardo also developed Adam Smith's theory of taxes as a part of the theory of distribution. A tax is not always paid by those on whom it is levied; a correct taxaction policy will always depend on a correct estimate of the indirect and ultimate effects of every form of tax" (Printing and the Mind of Man 277, for the first edition, London, 1817.

        Four words in his hand: Jackson dockets a receipt for $5 ìfor Servisses through the Sholesî ñ piloting his boat through Muscle Shoals most probably laden with cotton and/or corn grown on his Alabama plantation.

      Manuscript Document, one page, 7î x 4î. [Meltonís Bluff, Alabama], March 1, 1819. Four-word docket by Jackson on verso. On laid paper. Fine condition. The document, in full, ìRecd of William W. Crawford five Dollars in full for my Servisses through the Sholes.î Signed ìRobert Brashers.î On verso, darkly penned by Andrew Jackson: ìNo 4 - / Robt. Brashears / $5.î The word ìRecptî is in another hand. Tensions in the South between the frontier settlers and the Creek Indians began in Revolutionary times. The Continental Congress received numerous reports on skirmishes between settlers and the Creeks. On August 30, 1813, Creek Indians massacred several hundred pioneers at Fort Mims, near Tensaw, in south Alabama, Mississippi Territory. Col. Andrew Jackson marched into Alabama with the Tennessee militiamen to fight what is now known as the Creek Indian War. The Cherokee joined in the fight. In October, Jackson dispatched Col. John Coffee, one of his wifeís nephews, and 800 men to hunt for a war party of Creeks. Once of Coffeeís men was Davy Crockett. They crossed the Tennessee River and traveled to the head of Elk River Shoals. In his report to Jackson, Coffee wrote, in part, ìI proceeded to cross the river at the upper end of the shoals, all my efforts failed to produce a pilot. I took with me one of John Meltonís sons...î The Cherokees had established a large village at what became known as Meltonís Bluff. In 1780, John Melton, an Irishman, married a Cherokee woman and established a cotton plantation at Meltonís Bluff. As a result of the 1806 Cotton Gin Treaty, the Cherokee received one of Mississippi Territoryís first cotton gins and other concessions for ceding land north of the Tennessee River to the United States. On January 3, 1818, in a letter published in her ëLetters from Alabamaî (Washington: 1830), Anne Newport Royall wrote, ìOf General Jackson, I shall say nothing till I see him, which pleasure I expect at Melton's Bluff, head of the Muscle Shoals, where I shall be in a few days...î On January 12th, she wrote ìafter chatting with Rhea, I learned he was from Rockbridge county, Virginia; had piloted boats through the Muscle Shoals, fifteen years; sometimes four at a time, at ten dollars each. He sails down one day, and walks back the next. He never met, in all that time, with an accident! There are several of these pilots...î Robert Brashers was one of those pilots. On January 14, 1818, Mrs. Royall told of her stay in Meltonís Bluff. In part, ìMeltonís Bluff is a town, and takes its name from a person by the name of John Melton, a white man, deceased two years since, at an advanced age ... You have heard that this country consists of table and bottom land, also, of the Bluffs. These Bluffs happen where there is no bottom land, but the table land running up to the river forms a high precipice, called a Bluff. This is the case at Meltonís Bluff, the highest I have seen. Here is a very large plantation of cotton and maize, worked by about sixty slaves, and owned by General Jackson, who bought the interest of old Melton...î After John Melton died in 1816, Jackson purchased his plantation and his slaves from his son. Royal continued, ìI can sit in my room and see the whole plantation; the boats gliding down the river...î Jackson used those boats to transport cotton and corn grown at his plantation which was located on the south bank of the Tennessee River near Florence, Alabama. Muscle Shoals was a hazard to navigation because of its sandbanks which required an experienced pilot; the river drops 140 feet in 30 miles. William W. Crawford was employed by Jackson to hire pilots to assist his boats through the Shoals.

        GREAT BRITAIN: HOUSE OF COMMONS [and LORDS]: Secret Committee to Enquire into the State of The Bank of England;

      Secret Committee to Enquire into the State of The Bank of England; with Reference to the Expediency of the Bank Cash Payments, PHOTOGRAPHS AVAILABLE ON REQUEST. The complete series, first editions, comprising the House of Commons original reports and papers, with the (far rarer) House of Lords series of a few days later. Though the Lords and Commons often called the same witnesses, in fact the texts of their respective Reports are entirely different. All complete as follows: 1). Reports of the Secret Committee on the Expediency of the Bank Resuming Cash Payments, [2pp general title], Ordered by the House of Commons to be Printed 5th April and 6th May 1819. Comprising: 1a). First Report, 2pp including docket title, (Cmd 202), Ordered by the House of Commons to be printed, 5 April 1819; 1b). Second Report from the Secret Committee on the Expediency of the Bank Resuming Cash Payments. 355, [1 blank]pp., (Cmd 282), Ordered by the House of Commons, to be printed, 6 May 1819.BOUND WITH: 2). Reports by the Lords Committees Appointed a Secret Committee to Enquire into the State of The Bank of England; with Reference to the Expediency of the Bank resuming Cash Payments, with Minutes of Evidence and an Appendix, Ordered to be Printed 7th May 1819, [1], 431pp folio, (Cmd 30), London, House of Lords, 7th May 1819. * A very godd rare set of the key Parliamentary publications on Bank Cash Payments, comprising the complete House of Lords series (which is of extreme rarity) with that of the House of Commons. Bound in one volume, 19thC half red roan, gilt lettered: "Reports; Cash Payments, Lords & Commons, 1819." Some occasional light foxing, final 4 leaves with a little worming confined to the outer lower corner (nowhere near the text). Ricardo's evidence to the Commons, given on 4th and 19th March, is contained on pp. 133-142 and 227-232 of item 1b (Cmd 282). His evidence to the Lords, given on 24th and 26th March 1819, is on pages 184-193 and 196-204 of item 2 above (Cmd 30). HIS EVIDENCE IS ENTIRELY DIFFERENT IN BOTH CASES. "On the outbreak of the French war in 1797 cash payments were restricted and gold was no longer given in exchange for notes. This step was necessary in order to conserve the nation's gold reserves which had been seriously depleted through loans to allies... The advisability of resuming cash payments, that is, returning to the gold standard became problematical. Many prominent financiers and merchants testified that the rate of exchange of notes for gold had declined and had lead to an adverse balance of payments situation. Ricardo suggested in evidence that the note issue should have a gold base and that the domestic note issue would vary according to the amount of gold held by the banks. If imports exceeded exports, gold would flow out of the country, the note issue would be increased and prises would tend to rise. Thomas Tooke, later a leading member of the banking school of economics, accepted that the banks had over-issued paper currency, but felt that this was not the sole cause of commercial distress. The committee adhered to Ricardo's viewpoint and recommended that cash payments be gradually resumed starting in 1821. Ford and Ford, Catalogue of British Parliamentary Papers, p.172. For a full account of the proceedings of the Committees, see Sraffa, op. cit., pp. 350ff. 'The Suspension of Cash Payments by the Bank of England, which had been effected by the Order in Council of 26 February 1797, and confirmed by the Bank Restriction Act of the same year (37 Geo. III c.45), was continued by an Act of 1803 (44 Geo. III c.1), "until Six Months after the Ratification of a Definitive Treaty of Peace". After the Peace of Paris however the Resumption of Cash Payments was postponed by successive Acts, the latest of which, in 1818, had fixed the date for Resumption as 5 July 1819. 'Early in the Session of 1819 the Chancellor of the Exchequer intimated in the House of Commons that he would bring forward a measure for continuing the Restriction Act for a short period; but, soon after, he announced that in consequence of a communication from the Directors of the Bank (who preferred to "submit to the Consequences of a Parliamentary Inquiry" rather than consent to a temporary and inadequate measure) he proposed to move for a Committee of inquiry. On 2 February 1819, on the motion of the Chancellor of the Exchequer, it was agreed that a Committee of Secrecy consisting of twenty-one members should be appointed "to consider of the State of the Bank of England, with reference to the Expediency of the Resumption of Cash Payments at the period fixed by law, and into such other matters as are connected therewith; and to report to the House such information relative thereto, as may be disclosed without injury to the Public interests, with their observations". On 3 February the members were chosen by ballot . On 4 February the Lords appointed a Secret Committee, with the same terms of reference as the Commons .'The Commons' Committee took evidence from twenty-four witnesses between 11 February and 1 May: the Lords' from twenty-five witnesses between 8 February and 30 April. Sixteen of them, including Ricardo, were heard by both Committees' (Sraffa, The Works and Correspondence of David Ricardo, V, 350-351).

        A Voyage of Discovery, made under the orders of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's Ships Isabella and Alexander, for the purpose of exploring Baffin's Bay and inquiring into the probability of a North-West Passage.

Among Ross's officers on the voyage were William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine. Setting out in April of 1818, the expedition rediscovered Baffin Bay and its three Sounds, Smith, Jones, and Lancaster, thereby vindicating the reports made by William Baffin in 1616. Sailing some distance into Lancaster Sound, Ross sited a mirage which he believed to be a range of mountains blocking further passage. These he named the Croker Mountains in honour of the first secretary of the Admiralty, J.W.Croker. On his return to England, Ross's report was initially accepted as conclusive and he was promoted to Captain, but his contention that Lancaster Sound was landlocked was disputed by other members of the crew, notably by his second-in-command, William Edward Parry. Parry's view was supported by Sir John Barrow, second secretary of the Admiralty, with whom Ross was to carry on a life-long quarrel as a result. In 1819, the Admiralty appointed Parry to lead a second expedition, which proved Ross to be mistaken. His reputation seriously discredited, Ross was never again given command of an official government expedition. National Maritime Museum I 818n. Sabin 73376. Smith 8796. TPL 1153. Arctic Bib. 14873. Hill p. 261. Lande 1425. A.B. 14873 Ross was chosen to lead Britains resurgence of exploration of the arctic regions. He commanded the Isabella while William Edward Parry took command of the Alexander. Also included on the voyage were Edward Sabine and Ross's nephew James Clark Ross. The expedition rediscovered Baffins 17th century explorations and found three sounds including Smith, Jones and Lancaster. Unfortuately for Ross, he mistakenly thought the end of Lancaster sound was blocked by a fictitious range of mountains he named the Crocker mountains. After returning to England, many were scepitcal including William Parry about the existance of the mountain range. Parry was chosen to lead another expedition and discovered Lancaster Sound was the gateway to the North West Passage. Ross never lived down this mistake.

        A Voyage of Discovery, made under the orders of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's Ships Isabella and Alexander, for the purpose of exploring Baffin's Bay and inquiring into the probability of a North-West Passage.

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1819.. 2nd edition; Printed by Strahan and Spottiswoode For Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, And Brown, 1819. 2 vols. Vol I lxix, 265pp, Vol II (2), 258pp, 2 plates,(1 folding), 1 full page diagram. Second Edition of this famous voyage, which marked the resurgence of British interest in the search for the north-west passage, and inaugurated the great arctic explorations and discoveries of the nineteenth century. Among Ross's officers on the voyage were William Edward Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine. Setting out in April of 1818, the expedition rediscovered Baffin Bay and its three Sounds, Smith, Jones, and Lancaster, thereby vindicating the reports made by William Baffin in 1616. Sailing some distance into Lancaster Sound, Ross sited a mirage which he believed to be a range of mountains blocking further passage. These he named the Croker Mountains in honour of the first secretary of the Admiralty, J.W.Croker. On his return to England, Ross's report was initially accepted as conclusive and he was promoted to Captain, but his contention that Lancaster Sound was landlocked was disputed by other members of the crew, notably by his second-in-command, William Edward Parry. Parry's view was supported by Sir John Barrow, second secretary of the Admiralty, with whom Ross was to carry on a life-long quarrel as a result. In 1819, the Admiralty appointed Parry to lead a second expedition, which proved Ross to be mistaken. His reputation seriously discredited, Ross was never again given command of an official government expedition. National Maritime Museum I 818n. Sabin 73376. Smith 8796. TPL 1153. Arctic Bib. 14873.
