        Die Welt als Wille und Vorstellung: vier Bücher, nebst einem Anhange, der die Kritik der Kantschen Philosophie enthält.

      Leipzig, F.A. Brockhaus, 1819. 8vo. Cont. green hcloth w. gilt title and six gilt horizontal lines to spine. Some minor repairs to spine. Hinges a bit weak and internally strengthened . End-papers renewed. Half-title and title-page neatly restored at inner margins, not affecting text. A few ink-spots to title-page. Stamp removed from t-p. Some faint underlinings in pencil. Two leaves expertly restored at margins, affecting about 5 or ten letters at end of lines, most still legible. Otherwise a very good and clean copy w. almost no brownspotting. Textillustr. And one folded plate. XVI, 725, 1 (errata) pp.. The extremely scarce first edition of Schopenhauer's main work, "The World as Will and Idea", which became a seminal philosophical work that deeply influenced many important later thinkers, e.g. Nietzsche.The book was printed in about 700-750 copies, but due to the controversial contents and the too "modern" mind of Schopenhauer, the work was met with no sympathy in early 19th century Europe, and the book sold very poorly. The total lack of initial impact and the terribly bad sale-numbers caused the destruction of all the remaining copies, and only a very small portion of the original 700 or 750 copies still exist, making the first edition of this work one of the most rare important philosophical works of the 19th century. Schopenhauer actually suspected his publisher of deliberate treachery. "But by slow degrees his reputation grew. In 1844 a second edition of "Die Welt als Wille" appeared, and he began to acquire disciples and public recognition." (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 169). A third edition appeared in 1859, the year before Schopenhauer died, and both editions are much expanded. All three editions published within his lifetime are important and not common. Schopenhauer's "modern" mind resulted in a philosophy of nothingness and a pessimistic denial of the identity of change and progress, which are the predominant notions in this his main work, and only in modern thinkers would they find their true addressees. These modern thinkers, who were much influenced by Schopenhauer include some of the most influential men of the 19th and 20th centuries - Nietzsche, Wagner, Maler, Darwin, Einstein, Jung, Freud, Wittgenstein, Popper, Horkheimer, Beckett, Borges, Tolstoy, Thomas Mann, Knut Hamsun etc, etc...The "pessimistic philosophy" that Schopenhauer founded took its starting-point in the philosophy of Kant, but he heavily criticized most of the important contemporary philosophers, who were also influenced by Kant (i.e. Hegel, Fichte, Schelling etc.). Like Kant, convinced that scientific explanation would never be able to give a true explanation of the reality, the appearances of which are all that we will ever be able to at least apply with a form of systematization and classification, which resembles knowledge, Schopenhauer concludes that all intellectual life is governed by the will and passions. In Schopenhauer's philosophy the Will (principally to live) becomes the driving force of man and the world, and the intellect is subordinate to this; -thus, when desire comes before thought and will comes before being, human beings must live in the realm of desire, and by this desire they are perpetually tormented. "Kant's principal difficulty, the existence of matter apart from our knowledge of it, is expressed by the very inadequacy of our knowledge: it is the cosmic will, an uncontrollable force superior to human will, which, in the individual will, can only be broken by leading a negative "good life", in chastity, voluntary poverty, fasting and self-denial. The result is nothingness, and the aim of the saint is non-existence." (PMM 279)

      St. Charles County Missouri Territory july 5 1819 september 8 1827 and october 30 1876 St. Charles County, Missouri Territory, july 5, 1819, september 8, 1827 and october 30, 1876. (BOONE, DANIEL) 1 vols., Various sizes. . Each document folded several times, very short minor tears or chipping mostly at folds, overall very good . Daniel Boone (1734-1820), born near Reading, Pennsylvania, is known as a great pioneer and Indian fighter. His family left for North Carolina in 1750 and settled in Buffalo Lick the following year. Boone spent several years working for his father, a blacksmith and stock-raiser, and then in 1755 began his travels when he joined a North Carolina contingent in the Braddock campaign. Stories he heard from his companion, John Finley, filled him with desire for pioneering the Kentucky wilderness, but after a disastrous battle, he returned home and married Rebeccah Bryan, a neighbor. In 1767, Boone and a couple of men headed westward to explore. They returned home and that same year Finley happened by and Boone and Finley made new plans to head for Kentucky. They commenced their journey in 1769, set up camp at Station Camp Creek, and after many adventures returned home in 1771. From that point forward, Boone set out for the west on a regular basis, accompanying various parties and settlers on their journeys. He brought his family to settle in Kentucky in 1775, and was made a captain and then a major in the militia once the region became a county of Virginia. He battled the Indians, was captured by the Shawnee in 1778, but later escaped and continued to accompany new settlers into the area. Kentucky was divided into three counties the next year and Boone was made lieutenant-colonel of Fayette County and later chosen as a delegate to the legislature. Boone's skill as a pioneer far outweighed his ability to manage his affairs, for, although he had taken up many tracts of land, they had all been improperly entered and after a series of suits over a number of years, lost all of the land. He left Kentucky and settled in West Virginia, where he was appointed lieutenant-colonel of the county and later selected as its legislative delegate. Around 1789, he moved to Missouri to join his son, Daniel Morgan, where he was soon elected to public office. After Boone's wife died in 1813, he lived mostly at the home of his other son, Nathan. Boone is remembered as a great pioneer for having "the most qualities needed on the frontier-courage in a rare degree, great fortitude, an iron endurance, a mastery of woodcraft, and single expertness with the rifle.... He was loyal in friendship, honest, truthful, and modest.... He was one of the most respected and beloved of the nation's heroes...." (DAB)

        Architecture hydraulique, edited by C.-L. Navier. 4 vols

      Firmin Didot Paris: Firmin Didot, 1810-1819. No Dust Jacket. Belidor, Bernard Forest de (1697?-1761). Architecture hydraulique, ou l'art de conduire, d'?ever, et de menager les eaux pour les differents besoins de la vie. Edited by Claude-Louis Navier (1785-1836). 4 vols., 4to. Frontispiece portrait of Belidor in Vol. I, 230 engraved folding plates. Paris: F. Didot, 1810-19 (last three volumes in the set dated 1810). 289 x 211 mm. Tree sheep ca. 1819, gilt spines, rubbed, spine of Vol. III repaired. Some scattered foxing, light browning, otherwise fine. First Navier Edition, and best edition, of Belidor's Architecture hydraulique, first published in 1737-39. Belidor, a military engineer, worked under Cassini and La Hire during their survey of the meridian from Paris to the English Channel (1718), and taught mathematics at the artillery school at La F?e, where he authored several textbooks. Seeking to introduce mathematics into practical engineering, Belidor wrote La science des ingenieurs (1729) and Architecture hydraulique; it was with these two works that Belidor "entered into the science of mechanics proper with a summons to builders to base design and practice on its principles" (DSB). Both of these works served as engineering textbooks for nearly a century. In the 1810s Belidor's two works were issued in revised and expanded editions by Claude-Louis Navier, a graduate of the Ecole Polytechnique and the Ecole des Ponts et Chaussees, who had been recruited by the latter institution to edit the works of his great-uncle, the great French engineer Emiland Gauthey. By 1813 Navier had completed this task, and had also issued a revised and expanded edition of Belidor's La science des ingenieurs. [Navier's] taste for scholarship and his background of higher analysis at the Ecole Polytechnique and of practical engineering learned from his granduncle gave him the ideal preparation to make significant contributions to engineering science. During the period 1807-1820 he made mathematical analysis a fundamental tool of the civil engineer and codified the nascent concept of mechanical work for the science of machines. Navier's success as editor of Belidor's Science des ingenieurs and of Gauthey's works led their publisher, Firmin Didot, to invite him to prepare a revised edition of Belidor's Architecture hydraulique. Navier sought to correct the errors found in this work and to give it a mathematical sophistication that would make it useful to the graduates of the Ecole Polytechnique. One item needed particular attention--the study of machines, for which Navier sought a quantitative criterion that would facilitate the selection of the best machines and motors. Research on this topic, conducted during 1814-1818, led him to the concept of quantity of action, which Coriolis shortly afterward transformed into that of mechanical work. "In Navier's writings the march of the argument leads to the concept of work, whereas in those of J.-V. Poncelet and of Coriolis it flows from this concept. It took an embryonic form in the writings of Lazare Carnot, found its birth in those of A.-T. Petit, Poncelet, and Navier, and achieved the status of a general principle of applied mechanics in those of Coriolis. In Navier's revision of Architecture hydraulique, the engineer found this concept so defined as to give a measure of the usefulness of motors and a criterion that permitted rational design of motors and machines"(DSB). Navier's contributions to the Architecture hydraulique are confined to the first volume, which contains notes and commentary equal or surpassing the original text in length. The remaining volumes consist of reissues, with new titles dated 1810, of the edition published in 1780. The plates in all the volumes were re-engraved by Martin. Navier is best remembered to day as one of the authors of the Navier-Stokes equations for fluid dynamics, which can be used to model both non-turbulent and turbulent flow. These equations are of fundamental importance in the science of aerodynamics.

        De l'auscultation m?ate

      J. A. Brosson & J. S. Chaude Paris: J.-A. Brosson & J.-S. Chaude, 1819. No Dust Jacket. The Stethoscope Laennec, Ren?h?hile Hyacinthe (1781-1826). De l'auscultation m?ate ou trait?udagnostic 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. Chaud?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 m?ate, provided the first adequate method for diagnosing diseases of the thorax, and represented the greatest advance in physical diagnosis between Auenbrugger's percussion and R?en'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 m?ate 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. Bishop, "Reception of the stethoscope and Laennec's book," Thorax 36 (1981): 487-492. Dibner 129. Garrison-Morton 2673; 3219; 3614. Lilly, p. 173. Norman 1253. Printing and the Mind of Man 280.
