Such a Hymn Book you have now before you. It is not so large as to be either cumbersome or expensive: and it is large enough to contain such a variety of Hymns, as will not soon be worn threadbare." 570pp with an engraved frontis portrait of John Wesley. Contemporary full calf boards recently rebacked. A Bartle family copy with a list of births to the front end paper.

        Autograph Manuscript on Oersted's discovery of electro-magnetism

      Geneva, 1820. <p>[La Rive, Gaspard de (1770-1834)] Electro-Magnetisme-titre general pour les l[ivres] nouveaux. Umrisse zu den &c. [Review of Umrisse zu den physischen verhaltnissen des von Herrn Professor Oersted entdeckten elektro-chemischen Magnetismus (1821), by Paul Erman (1764-1851)] Incomplete autograph manuscript draft, consisting of the title, the first two paragraphs and a good portion of the third. 2 pp. 277 x 190 mm. Written chiefly on the left column of a sheet folded into two columns, allowing for revisions. Creased where previously folded, small dampstain in lower corner, one upper corner a little chipped, but otherwise very good.</p><p>An intriguing autograph manuscript review of Paul Erman&#39;s Umrisse zu den physischen verhaltnissen des von Herrn Professor Oersted entdeckten elektro-chemischen Magnetismus (1821), reflecting the extraordinary ferment in physical science aroused by the recent discoveries of Oersted, Ampère, Arago and others re the relationship of electricity and magnetism. The review was written for the Bibliothèque Universelle, Geneva&#39;s foremost scientific and literary review, by Gaspard de la Rive, an editor of this journal and himself a physicist and experimenter in electrical science whose work is summarized in the D.S.B.; he is best known for his defense and helpful criticism of Ampère&#39;s theory of magnetism. The present review focuses on the work of Paul Erman, professor of physics at the University of Berlin and perpetual secretary of Berlin&#39;s Royal Academy. The review is certainly closely connected with Ampère&#39;s work, and, according to Ampère&#39;s most recent biographer, James R. Hofmann, the account of Erman&#39;s experiments contained in it influenced Ampère&#39;s investigations of induction in July 1821, in which he very nearly anticipated Faraday&#39;s landmark discovery of electromagnetic induction a decade later. The third paragraph of La Rive&#39;s work may be translated as follows: The apparatus used in M. Erman&#39;s experiments is very ingenious; it bears some resemblance to that which we described [in] Bib. Univ. vol. 16 s. 119. It is the same principle of action, whose effects the author renders more obvious by suspending the entire apparatus from a wire, in such a way that one can make it move by presenting magnets on either its right or its left side; one thus observes the rotation movements printed on a voltaic [carde?] by one or the other pole of a bar magnet. He makes use of a silver or copper crucible, in which he places a small amount of zinc, isolated by means of a watch-glass; the chain between the zinc and copper is formed by a band of zinc. . . . The first sentence in the above paragraph refers to La Rive&#39;s own "flotteur électrique," a simple device demonstrating the action of a magnet on a simple current loop, which was first described in La Rive&#39;s "Notices sur quelques expériences électro-magnétiques" published in Vol. 16 of the Bibliothèque Universelle (1821). Hofmann, in his account of Ampère&#39;s July 1821 induction experiments, notes the influence of both Erman and La Rive on Ampère&#39;s work:</p><p>An interesting experiment by Paul Erman caught Ampère&#39;s eye when it was reported in the Bibliothèque Universelle early in 1821 [i.e. most probably in the published review of which we are offering the manuscript draft]. . . . Erman had used a bar magnet detector in his own experiment; Ampère would use bar magnets in 1821. . . . Similarly, in March, 1821, Gaspard de La Rive had used a bar magnet to demonstrate attractions and repulsions of a vertical current loop. Consequently, by early in 1821 Ampère was thoroughly familiar with apparatus in which steady currents in vertical current loops were rotated using magnets (Hofmann, André-Marie Ampère, [1995] pp. 284-85).</p><p>Earlier in his review La Rive notes that Erman wrote his work after Oersted&#39;s discovery of electromagnetism (spring 1820), but before learning of the researches of Ampère and Arago that began the following September. He refers to Ampère&#39;s discovery of the relationship of current-flow to magnetism (1820) as "le fait nouveau et singulier decouvert par M. Ampère, . . . [qui] fournit en supposent dans l&#39;aguille magnetique des courrans de meme nature, une explication claire simple et satisfaisant de la plupart des phenomenes electro-magnetiques" [the new and singular fact discovered by M. Ampère, . . . [which], supposing that the currents in a magnetic needle are of the same nature, provides a clear, simple and satisfying explanation of most electromagnetic phenomena]. </p><p>Study of the bibliography of Ampère&#39;s writings published by Hofmann confirms that in 1821 Ampère published 8 papers, of which no less than 5 appeared in La Rive&#39;s Bibliothèque Universelle des Sciences, Belles-lettres et Arts. One of these was entitled "Lettre de M. Ampère à M. Erman . . . ." Another paper published slightly later in the year was entitled "Extrait d&#39;une lettre de Mr. Ampère au Prof. De La Rive". This manuscript fragment, representing certainly a major portion of La Rive&#39;s review, was preserved in a Victorian album of 120 autographs by scientists and explorers we recently acquired. It was the first document preserved in the album, and was misidentified by the member of the Paget family who put the album together. Why this particular leaf was preserved without its conclusion will remain a mystery. A complete transcription and translation of the document is attached. </p>

        The history of Hindostan, its arts, and its sciences, as connected with the history of the other great empires of Asia, during the most ancient periods of the world. 2nd edition.

      - London, printed by W. Bulmer and W. Nicol, 1820.3 volumes in 2. 4to. Contemporary half calf, spines gilt (hinges sl. dam.). With 16 engraved plates (2 folding). 522; 303,337 pp.* First edition London 1795. - Thomas Maurice (1754-1824) published numerous works on the religion of India. After he had completed his extensive 'Indian Antiquities' he traced Indian history back to its classical origins. Volume I mainly gives ancient astronomical details from the Hindoo, Hebraic, Phoenician, Egyptian and Greek systems, covering the period between the creation and the flood. Volume II contains the Sanskrit and classical history of India. The imaginative curious plates are showing the Indian Deitees (incarnations of Veeshnu, Creeshna etc.) but also the ancient zodiac from Egypt, oriental zodiac, the 28 Hindoo lunar mansions. The plates are mainly facsimiles of the mythological designs and as Maurice says in his advertisement 'Absurd as some of them may appear to an European eye, it appeared still more absurd attempt to make any alterations in them'. - (Some staining).

        THE YOUNG SPORTSMAN&#39;S INSTRUCTOR

      London: Apollo Press, 1820. n. Hardcover. A Miniature Sporting Book in Appropriately Decorated Morocco. 83 x 57 mm (3 1/4 x 2 1/4"). 3 p.l., 136 pp., [1] leaf (blank before title excised, perhaps to remove previous ownership mark). EXQUISITE CONTEMPORARY DARK GREEN MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, BY THOMAS GOSDEN, covers intricately gilt in a Grolieresque design of thick and thin fillets, interlinking strapwork, leafy flourishes, and acorn tools, all of these forming a frame enclosing a central oval with a gilt hunting horn, flat spine tooled with gilt vine forming eight rounded compartments, six with sporting equipment or an animal at center, one with the initials "G M," and one with the date "1820," turn-ins with gilt Greek key roll, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In an excellent later custom-made green morocco-backed clamshell box by Aquarius of London. With woodcut frontispiece showing an angler. Bondy, p. 26-27; Spielman 356A. Perhaps a breath of wear to leather, the leaves a shade less than bright and with mild offsetting, last two gatherings with slight vertical crease, but still A VERY DESIRABLE EXAMPLE, the text and the beautiful binding both clean, fresh, and generally well preserved. This delightful little book of practical advice on "Angling, Fowling, Hunting, Ordering Singing Birds, Poultry, Conies, Hares, and Dogs" comes in an apposite binding by Thomas Gosden (1780-1843), himself a sportsman. The hunting horn and the tools on the spine are identifiable as belonging to Gosden, whose work often appeared on books about angling or field sports. In addition to advice on appropriate baits for each season and methods for snaring birds and small mammals, our intriguing author includes anecdotes such as the tale of an angler who, while burying a human skull he had fished out of the water, discovered a bag of gold coins. Markham (1568?-1637) was a prolific author with dual careers: one as a poet, playwright, and translator of literary works and another as an expert on country pursuits, horsemanship, and the veterinary art. A scion of the landed gentry, his knowledge of field sports and angling was acquired by experience, and his works on these topics have always been considered more valuable than his more high-minded efforts. According to DNB, Markham&#39;s practical guides contain "a wealth of detail on many aspects of day-to-day living. For the social historian, or the re-enactor, Gervase Markham&#39;s numerous works are indispensable guides to the practicalities of Renaissance life." A miniature version of the present work was first published in the early 18th century, and the present item is a reprint of that issue. Spielman tells us our edition "is perhaps rare that the original" and notes that it is one of the "eagerly collected" publications of the noted Apollo Press. ABPC find six copies of this edition at auction since 1979.

        Entomographia Imperii Russici./ Entomographie de la Russie.

      Moscou, Société Impériale des Naturalistes/ Imprimerie Semen, 1820-1828. Volumes I-III (of 5). 4to (260 x 210mm). With 4 hand-coloured engraved frontispiece-titles and 82 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Recent half cloth with 2 red and 1 black gilt lettered labels, marbled sides. The first 3 volumes of the rarest and most beautifully produced work on Russian entomology. Dr. W. Junk in his '50 Jahre Antiquar' lists the book in his chapter 'Introuvable' (page 307). The first major contribution on Russian entomology, preceded only by Pallas' 'Icones Insectorum praesertim Rossiae Sibiriaeque...' (1781-98). The edition of the present work was very small and the subscribers list in volume 2 and 3 only lists 167 subscribers. Of volumes 2 and 3 very few copies have been distributed and most probably these volumes were destroyed. 'Dans le préface du 4e volume de cet ouvrage l'auteur parle de la perte qu'il a faite de la presque totalité de ce qui existait des trois premiers volumes de l'Entomographie, occasionnée par des mains infidèles. Cette perte, qui porte particulièrement sur le 2e volume, et plus encore sur le 3me, dont il n'avait été distribué que peu d'exemplaires, à réduit à bien petite nombre les exemplaires complets (Ekama, Fondation Teyler. Catalogue de la Bibliothèque p. 255).//Johann Gotthelf Fischer von (de) Waldheim (1771-1853) was a German naturalist. The son of a linen weaver he was born in Waldheim, Saxony. He studied medicine in Leipzig and travelled to Paris with his friend Alexander von Humboldt and studied under Georges Cuvier. In 1804 he became professor of natural history at the Moscow University and the following year he founded the Imperial Society of naturalists of Moscow. He was one of the most prominent naturalists of his time and became famous for his scientific investigations of Russia. He was also known is some circles as 'Russia's Cuvier'.//The collation of the work is as follows:/Vol. I: pp. (4), viii, 210, xii, 104, with 26 hand coloured engraved plates and 2 hand-coloured engraved frontispiece-titles.

        RECUEIL DE DRAPERIES D'HALLAVANT: 4eme Cahier

      Osmont et Dezon, Paris - n.d. (ca. 1820-1825). Volume 4 of seven stand-alone volumes. Oblong quarto. Title page followed by 48 (of 50) hand-colored engravings. Quarter calf and marbled boards with gilt title on spine. Existing examples of this book do not appear to have a title except for the first cahier, with the following volumes designated only by their number (2eme cahier, 3eme cahier.). A French bookseller list from 1819 shows the title as - Recueil de draperies d'Hallavant, a l'usage des marchands de meubles, tapissiers, decorateurs, mis au jour et augmente par Osmond et Dezon -, with a publication date of 1818. Two versions were available, one in black & white for 18 francs, and one in color for 25 francs. Volumes in the series also lack any dates except for the 7eme cahier, which was issued by Pinsonnière in 1839. The accepted date range of this series is 1810-1839 as based on internal evidence of drapery styles [Cf. Gail Caskey Winkler], and this volume falls into the 1820-1825 date range. Many bibliographic resources cite the first cahier where the name Osmont appears as Osmond (i.e. Berlin: 1278), however in the following volumes the name is correctly presented as Osmont. One of a series of 7 cahiers issued in Paris by Hallavant, Osmont and Pinsonniere between 1810 and 1839 with measured drawings of Empire style draperies for window treatments and beds; many of the bed designs include a plan outlining the proper geometry of the design. This is a widely referenced authentic notebook of designs for practicing designers of the Empire period and is extremely rare. A handful of major institutions in the world own assorted volumes from this series; we were unable to find a copy of the 4th cahier in OCLC. Very good- condition, restoration work done in the past - the front hinge and gutter have been repaired with japan and the title page has also been professionally restored where there was loss. The plates are mostly clean except for the occasional smudge or spot of foxing; several have 3 or 4 pin holes near the upper margins, not affecting the plates.

        Landscape and Castle by Laporte

      1820 - Hand-coloured aquatint printed on wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor creasing, and mild rippling. Trimmed virtually to image on all sides. A stunning pastoral landscape engraved after an original work by the famous watercolour painter John Laporte. This print may be part of a series as the inscription below the title, which reads, "From Select Compositions of Modern Masters," seems to suggest. A student of the aquatint engraver J. C. Stadler and the Royal Academy Schools, Frederick Christian Lewis was a renowned and versatile painter, engraver, and etcher. Although he produced and exhibited many landscape paintings throughout his life, he was chiefly known for his prolific and varied engravings. In addition to his separately issued topographical, sporting, and landscape prints, he executed numerous engravings after the Old Masters and eminent contemporary artists like Landseer, Bonington, and Danby for publications such as John Chamberlaine's Original Designs of the most Celebrated Masters in the Royal Collection (1812) and William Ottley's Italian School of Design (1823). Lewis was also a skilled portraitist, and he received copious engraving commissions from various members of the Royal Family. Cf. Dictionary of National Biography.

        Memoires sur l'action mutuelle de deux courans electriques, sur celle exise entre un courant electrique et un amiant ou le globe terrestre, et celle de deux aimans l'un sur l'autre.

      . Lus a l'Academie royale des Sciences. (Extrait des Annales de Chimie et de Physique, 15). (1820) (Paris , after 6 November 1820), 8°, 68 pp., 5 fold-out plates by Adam after Girad, in blue contemp. wrapper; annulated stamp on title.. The first edition, first offprint issue, of the first paper on the nature of electric current by the founder of electrodynamics. - - Like Hans Christian Oersted Andre Marie Ampere (1885-1836) was devoted follower of Kant who constructed his own Kantian philosophical system. Ampere's philosophy postulated "two levels of knowledge of the external world ... phenomena, presented to us directly through the senses, and .. noumena, the objective causes of phenomena" (DSB); this determined the form of his scientific discoveries, beginning in the fall 1820. Fascinated by Oersted's demonstration of the existence of electromagnetism, which had been reported by Francois Arago to an astonished Academie des Sciences on September 4, 1820, Ampere immediately set out to determine through his own experiments the exact relationship of electrical current-flow and magnetism. He read his fist report to the Academie des Sciences on September 18, 1820, and gave further reports on September 25, October 9, November 6, and in later sessions. In the present paper, "his first great memoir on electrodynamics" (DSB), probably written soon after November 6, the latest session of the Academie that is mentioned, Ampere describes the series of "classical and simple" experiments with which he first explored the interaction of two electric currents and of electric currents with magnets as well as with the earth's magnetic field. Ampere here "demonstrated for the first time that two parallel conductors, carrying currents traveling in opposite directions, they repeal each other" (Sparrow, p.33.) Hiss experiments provided empirical evidence for his new theory of magnetism as "electricity in motion". The memoir concludes with nine succinct statements of the nature of electric current that sum up his early work (DSB). - - Dibner Heralds of Science 62; Norman 64

        COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS. BY HIS EXCELLENCY GOVERNOR JOHN BROOKS, GOVERNOR OF THE COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS. A PROCLAMATION. WHEREAS BY AN ACT OF THE LEGISLATURE OF THIS COMMONWEALTH, PASSED ON THE SIXTEENTH DAY OF JUNE LAST, ENTITLED "AN ACT RELATING TO THE CALLING OF A CONVENTION".[caption title].

      Boston. Sept. 12, 1820. - Broadside, 15 x 9 1/2 inches. Old folds. Short closed tear in left margin along one fold, not affecting text. Docketed on verso in contemporary manuscript; contemporary autograph inscription in lower margin: "Copy attest Alden Bradford Sec[retary] of the Common[wealth]." Very good. Broadside proclamation by the governor of Massachusetts announcing the results of a statewide vote to decide whether or not to call for delegates to change the state constitution. This was the second state constitutional convention, after the first of 1780, which resulted in nine amendments to the foundational document. Maine had been granted statehood in March 1820, a few months prior, separating it from Massachusetts. Having voted in town meetings across the state, the people of Massachusetts voted 11,756 to 6,593 in favor of amending the constitution. The governor therefore called upon all qualified citizens to assemble "on the third Monday of October next.[to] elect one or more Delegates.to meet Delegates from other Towns, in Convention at the State House, in Boston, on the third Wednesday of November next, to take into consideration the propriety and expediency of making any (and if any what) alterations or amendments in the present Constitution of Government of the Commonwealth." The broadside is signed by Alden Bradford, Secretary of the Commonwealth. A nice piece of Massachusetts constitutional history.

        Histoire Naturelle générale et particulière des Mollusques Terrestres et Fluviatiles ...

      Paris, J.B. Baillière, 1820-1851. 4 volumes. Folio (430 x 300mm). pp. viii, 402; (4), xvi, 1-184 (60 pages of 96 bis), 260, (22, explication des planches), (2, errata); (4); (4), with 248 engraved plates, apart from a few plain anatomical key plates, all printed in colour and finished by hand. Later, brown half morocco, spines in 6 compartments with gilt lettering, top edges gilt. An attractive uniformly bound Large Paper copy of one of the rarest and most beautiful conchological works. "Posterity is grateful to Férussac for some of the most beautiful and accurate coloured figures of non-marine molluscs ever published" (Dance p. 91). It is also the last and one of the finest examples of French colour-printing by Langlois, the printer responsible for some of Redouté's finest work./The work had a long and complicated publishing history with the result that few copies are found complete. The first 28 parts, by Férussac, appeared between 1820 and 1832, containing 162 plates and 128 pages of text. In 1838 another six instalments were issued by Deshayes. The death of the publisher and departure of Deshayes to Algeria again brought the work to a halt. In 1848 Baillière acquired the stock and plates and convinced Deshayes that a work of such beauty and scientific importance could not remain unfinished. Eight more instalments were published. Deshayes is responsible for the greater part of the text and 85 plates./The colour-printing and handcolouring were executed under supervision of Langlois and after his death by his pupil and successor, Geny-Gros, the plates were drawn by the finest natural history artists in France at the time: Bessa, Huet, Prêtre, and Riocreux. Baillière in his "Avertissement de l'éditeur' tells how as a consequence of the 1848 Revolution the most outstanding natural history artists could not find employment, apart from his work. Our copy has a plain plate 127AB which was not present in other copies we sold in the past./ /B.M.(N.H.) II, 569; Nissen ZBI, 1348.

        The pharmacopoeia of the United States of America

      Boston: Wells & Lilly, 1820. 8vo. 272pp. 18th cent. tree sheep, rebacked. Some foxing and browning as is common in American books of this period. </p><p>First edition. Garrison-Morton 1845. The first official pharmacopeia of the United States owed its existence largely to the efforts of the American physician Lyman Spalding, who began campaigning for a national pharmacopeia in 1815. Spalding&#39;s efforts finally bore fruit in a national convention that met in 1820 and adopted a pharmacopeia based mainly on the Pharmacopoeia of the Massachusetts Medical Society (1808).
