        Archive of Letters of New York Lawyer Abraham Crist and His Family

      1820. [Crist, Abraham (d. 1852)]. [Archive of Letters of New York Lawyer Abraham Crist and His Family.] c. 150 items, c.1820-1854: Various sizes ranging from 4-1/2" x 7-1/2" to 8" x 10." Light toning and fold lines, some letters dampstained or edgeworn with negligible loss to text. All items housed in hinged sleeves in a three-ring binder. * Active in New York City and Brooklyn, Crist was a prominent member of the bar who perished in the wreck of the Hudson River steamer Henry Clay, one of the greatest maritime disasters in American history. (His death was mentioned in papers as far away as California.) This archive includes a great deal of Crist's professional correspondence dating back to the 1820s. Many letters concern his dealings with John C. Newkirk, a leading attorney of Hudson, N.Y. Another correspondent was Greene C. Bronson, a prominent Utica, N.Y. attorney and politician. There is also an interesting 1829 letter from Albany (author's name illegible) commenting on Crist's application to the State Legislature on behalf of a bank. The rest of the letters deal with Crist's estate and the fate of his family. One poignant letter from this period, dated 1855, concerning Crist's son, Abraham, discussing his difficulties coping with life and his desire to be like his father. There is also a letter from an attorney concerning litigation against the Dry Dock Company, owners of the Henry Clay, along with related letters with comments on the litigation.

        Nouvelles méthoedes pour la determination des orbites des comètes.Paris: Huzard-Courcier, 1806-1820.

      First edition, second issue [with the reset title page and supplement], of the invention of the method of least squares - "the automobile of modern statistical analysis" (Stigler). A rare complete copy including both supplements (in first issue) and Legendre's 1820 note in which he attacked Gauss for having claimed the method his own - "the most famous priority dispute in the history of statistics" (<i>ibid</i>).<br/><br/> "In 1805 Legendre published the work by which he is chiefly known in the history of statistics, <i>Nouvelles méthoedes pour la determination des orbites des comètes</i>. At eighty pages this work made a slim book, but it gained a fifty-five page supplement (and a reprinted title page [i.e., the offered issue]) in January of 1806, and a second eighty-page supplement in August 1820. The appendix presenting the method of least squares occupies nine of the first eighty pages; it is entitled 'Sur la méthode des moindres quarrés.' For stark clarity of the exposition the presentation is unsurpassed; it must be counted as one of the clearest and most elegant introductions of a new statistical method in the history of statistics." (Stigler). <br/><br/> However, "in early 1809 Gauss published his <i>Theoria Motus Corporum Coelestium</i> which also presented the method and linked it with the normal distribution, adding: 'On the other hand our principle, which we have made use of since the year 1795, has lately been published by Legendre'...<br/><br/> "Gauss deeply affronted Legendre by referring to the method of least squares as 'our principle' (principium nostrum in Latin) and by claiming that he, Gauss, had been using the method since 1795. The ensuing priority dispute, and another one involving the law of quadratic reciprocity of number theory, exacerbated the relationship between the two men. The heat of the dispute never reached that of the Newton- Leibniz controversy, but it reached dramatic levels nonetheless. Legendre appended a semi anonymous attack on Gauss to the 1820 version of his 'Nouvelles methodes pour la determination des orbites des cometes' [the second supplement included in this copy], and Gauss solicited reluctant testimony from friends that he had told them of the method before 1805. Plackett (1972) reviews most of the evidence. A recent study of this and further evidence suggests that, although Gauss may well have been telling the truth about his prior use of the method, he was unsuccessful in whatever attempts he made to communicate it before 1805. In addition, there is no indication that he saw its great general potential before he learned of Legendre's work. Legendre's 1805 appendix, on the other hand, although it fell far short of Gauss's work in development, was a dramatic and clear proclamation of a general method by a man who had no doubt about its importance."

        Technical drawing of Whaling equipment

      France,: circa, 1820.. Original drawing in ink on paper, 220 x 290 mm., ms. notations in ink and pencil; in fine condition, mounted. A finely-executed nineteenth-century technical drawing showing the tryworks and various implements involved in on-board whale processing. This drawing, with its various manuscript corrections, may have been a preliminary work for a French publication on whaling. It is drawn with the usual competence and finesse associated with French maritime art of this period.The upper section of the drawing shows different types of harpoon, lance, forks, ladles and strainers, and a sail-buoy used to mark whale carcasses. The lower section of the drawing shows the "tryworks" - the on-board furnace used for rendering whale blubber into oil. The tryworks was the most distinguishing feature of a whaleship, and consisted of two cast-iron trypots set into a brick furnace.At the time when this drawing was made, French whaling activity was mainly concentrated in the Pacific, where a formidable fleet operated even before any French colonies were established in the area.

      London: printed for Sherwood, Neely, and Jones, [N.d., but publisher&#39;s advertisements dated September 1820]. 8vo. (8 7/8 x 5 3/8 inches). Half- title, 1p. errata, 16pp. publisher&#39;s catalogue at end dated September 1820. Occasional wood-engraved decorations. Original boards, rebacked. First edition, second issue, of this charming work, full of fascinating practical information on land management at the turn of the 19th century This appears to be a second, remainder issue of the first edition: the dedication is dated 1806, the text has occasional watermark dates of 1804, but the title is a cancel issued by Sherwood, Neely & Jones who are also responsible for the publisher&#39;s catalogue at the end which is dated 1820. The first issue was dated 1806 and published by T. Ostell. No copies of the present issue are listed as having sold at auction in the past thirty years, and only one example of the 1807 issue. "Although this Work may not be written in fine stile and polished language ... it will be found to be clear and comprehensive ... suited as well to the understanding of the refined Gentleman as to that of the industrious farmer&#39; (introduction, p.ix). The work is largely made up from many short entries under numerous sub-headings, and reads like a note-book of observations and calculations: a charmingly straight-forward work which nevertheless imparts a great deal of practical knowledge. For example, in the section on planting trees, Tibbs extols the financial benefits of growing trees for timber and in an innovative way combines the purely financial calculations of the costs and profits of planting an acre of land with practical instructions on how to plant and manage the plantation for the period needed to see a good profit (42 years). According to the introduction, Thomas Tibbs received his initial training in agriculture from his grandfather at Fidden Farm in Wiltshire, from there he moved to the Chiltern Hundreds where he farmed on his own land. He subsequently worked for Charles Hill, J. Sainsbury, and King George III&#39;s Flemish Farm before becoming Land Steward to Lord Grenville (the dedicatee) at Burnham in Buckinghamshire: this wide practical experience allowing him to write with authority on the numerous subjects he covers in this work.

        Memorial for Sunday School Girls; Being an Authentic Account of the Conversion, Experience, and Happy Deaths, or Twelve Girls

      Philadelphia: Published by the Sunday and Adult School Union, 1820 Original blue printed boards. . Small twelvemo. Woodcut frontispiece. Spine worn, early ownership inscription on title-page: "Sunday school of St. James's Church/Reward of merit Harriet Hentzel." A very good copy of a fragile book. This macabre book was very popular, going into several editions in a short period of time. The title was revised to include, in later editions, "thirteen girls," and "twenty three" and "twenty-five" children. The publishing history is uncertain, as some of the more compendious editions have dates earlier than 1820. The language of the girls seems precocious, with the seven-year-old Miss Lewis remarking, "My Jesus is coming; the chariot is coming...Good bye! I don't like to say so to my mother, she will be unhappy. Bury me with my sister and mother..." The author, a "minister of the Gospel," seems to revel in the early deaths of these young girls.

      Printed by J. Smith, and Sold by J. Deighton et al,, Cambridge: 1820 - Illustrated throughout with equations. Fold out plate @ rear of Babbage's piece. Herschel, along with Babbage & George Peacock [1791 - 1858], formed a triumvirate of early 19th C. British mathematicians of uncommon ability; for example, the three founded the Analytical Society, whose purpose was punned by Herschel as "The replacement of the dot-age of the University by the pure d-ism of the Continent." Herschel was elected to the Royal Society in 1813; Babbage followed suit 3 years later. Herschel, of course, subsequently distinguished himself with a career in Astronomy whereas Babbage is known to us today primarily for his work on his Analytical & Difference Engines, the conceptual forerunners to the modern computer. And while the authors, in their preface, readily acknowledge a debt to LaCroix's "Trait&#142; El&#142;mentaire de Calcul Diff&#142;rentiel et de Calcul Int&#142;gral" which they had translated 4 years earlier, this specific publication by the two men has a number of notable individual attributes: it is the first book authored by Herschel, and the subject matter of the work - the concept of finite differences - fascinated Baggage to the extent it was to occupy his attentions for many years hereafter, as it formed the intellectual underpinning for his ensuing research into mechanical calculation. And finally, & perhaps of even wider import, with this 1820 publication, it is acknowledged that Herschel & Babbage 'gave the first impulse to a mathematical revival in England.' [DNB]. Binding - Fine (period bookplate). Textblock - VG+ (light foxing, most noticeable on t.p.). Modern brown quarter calf with marbled paper boards. 8vo, in 4s. 8-1/2" x 5-1/4". 1st edition. iv, [2], 171, [1 (blank)]; [4], 42 pp. Divisional t.p. for Babbage's work.

        The Poetical Works of Walter Scott, Esq

      Edinburgh, London- Arch. Constable and Co., Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, and John Murray, 1820 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A finely bound twelve volume set of The Poetical Works of Walter Scott, Esq. Bound in leather with gilt lettering and blindstamped decoration. Twelve Volumes, complete. Rebound with the original boards, except Volume X. A letter concerning this set of Walter Scott, from Henry Babington Smith, dated May 1923,is contained herewith. There is an ink inscription on the front blank of Volume 1 from Mary Babington, dated 1820. With Henry Prior&#39;s bookseller label on the front pastedown of Volumes I-IX, and XI-XII. Volume X is bound by Maltbys of Oxford. Sir Walter Scott, 1st Baronet, 1771 1832, was a prolific Scottish historical novelist and poet popular throughout Europe during his time and is considered by some as responsible for inventing the modern historical novel. After Scott had founded a printing press, his poetry, beginning with The Lay of the Last Minstrel brought him fame. He published a number of other poems over the next ten years, including the popular The Lady of the Lake. Whilst Scott is considerably more popular as an author, his poetry is not to be overlooked. Sir Henry Babington Smith GBE CH KCB CSI, 1863 1923, was a senior British civil servant. He was educated at Eton College and Trinity College, Cambridge, where he read classics. Amongst his numerous positions, Babington Smith became principal private secretary to the Chancellor of the Exchequer, private secretary to Lord Elgin on his appointment as Viceroy of India, and Treasury representative in the South African War. In 1900 he became British representative on the Council of Administration of the Ottoman Public Debt, becoming its chairman in 1901. In 1903 he returned home to become secretary to the General Post Office. In 1909 he became president of the National Bank of Turkey. The First World War saw him holding a variety of posts connected with finance, including deputy governor of the British Trade Corporation. In 1918 he accompanied Lord Reading to the United States as Assistant Commissioner and Minister Plenipotentiary. After the war, he chaired the Indian Finance and Currency Committee and the Railway Amalgamation Tribunal in 1921. He was appointed a director of the Bank of England in 1920. Smith was appointed Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the British Empire (GBE) in the 1920 civilian war honours for his services in the United States. Condition: The bindings are tight and firm. The front hinge of volume 1 is slightly strained. There is mild wear to the extremities, including mild bumping and rubbing, with some discolouration to the boards. Internally the pages are generally clean and bright, with only very slight browning to the page edges, and occasional spotting, becoming most prominent to the first and last few pages. Overall the condition is very good..

        Arabia, Egypt, Abyssinia, Red Sea &c

      Edinburgh, c. 1820. Copper engraving, 48 x 53 cms, original hand-colour, from Thomson&#146;s &#145;New General Atlas&#146;; major caravan routes are marked. Thomson made his fortune through his extremely successful &#39;New General Atlas&#39;, but in the 1820s he bankrupted himself, twice (in the process of creating his large-scale &#39;Atlas of Scotland&#39; in a burst of patriotic pride) and he disappears from the historical record. Thomson&#39;s maps are characteristic of the Edinburgh school of cartography which flourished at the beginning of the nineteenth-century and is noted for its clarity and elegance; other exponents include John Cary and John Pinkerton.

        Marchand de Paniers Original Nineteenth Century Watercolor of French Tradesman

      British Isles : c. 1820. Archivally framed in Ivory rag matting with neo-classical gilt moulding. Fine condition A scarce and charming original early nineteenth century watercolor painting on wove paper. (7 x 7.25 inches, 177 x 186 mm.) The painting has been tipped onto ecru wove album paper of the period, as was the custom, yet the watercolors remain vibrant and rich. Although the origin of this lovely painting is unknown, a refined and experienced hand clearly created this detailed and elegant composition. The details are fine; both the tones and shading display the painter&#39;s astute understanding of composition and perspective. The artist no doubt was an armchair or "parlor" watercolorist, likely an aristocratic gentlewoman or man who sought inspiration from the vast array of published volumes, complete with engraved plates, of the trades, and costumes of then exotic regions of the globe, thus the inspiration seems apparent.
