        Histoire abrégée des Sciences Métaphysiques, Morales et Politiques, depuis la Renaissance des lettres. Traduite de L'Anglois de Dugald Stewart, et précédée d'un discours Préliminaire, par J. A. Buchon.

      Chez F. G. Levrault 1820 - Paris, Chez F. G. Levrault, 1820-1823. 3 vol. in 8 de [II]- LXXXII-[LXXXIII-LXXXXIV] [discours préliminaire et préface de l'auteur]-347-[1]pp., [4]- 408pp., [4]-378pp., reliures en demi veau fauve de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs avec des filets dorés, triples filets dorés, fleurons dorés avec de petits manques, larges frises dorées, pièces de titre de maroquin rouge dont celui du tome 1 en partie frotté, pièces de tomaison de maroquin noir, titre doré, accroc à la coiffe supérieure et manque une petite partie de la tête du dos du volume 1, ainsi qu'une petite surface au bas du dos du tome 1, coupes et coins frottés, rousseurs éparses, signature de l'éditeur au centre du dos des pages du faux titre des tomes 1 et 2, bon et bel exemplaire. Bien que la traduction de Buchon ne soit pas complète, ayant pour effet de ne pas totalement faire connaître le travail de Stewart sur le continent européen, principalement en France, dans son oeuvre, l'auteur affirme que la philosophie européenne se caractérise par l'émergence et le développement de l'étude expérimentale de la nature humaine. Ceci ayant culminé avec l'école écossaise, qui toujours selon le philosophe, posa les fondements solides d'une science empirique de l'homme dans les champs de l'épistémologie, la gouvernance politique, l'économie politique et la Philosophie morale. Dugald Stewart (1753-1828), est considéré comme l'un des plus importants philosophes écossais avec Thomas Reid, dont il fut l'élève. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Histoire naturelle des Oiseaux

      973 finely engraved & handcolored plates with 14 of the orig. watercolors. Each plate within a triple ruled frame, handcolored in yellow. Text within decorative borders. Ten vols. Large folio (465 x 320 mm.), fine French polished calf (ca. 1820-30) by Messier, sides finely panelled in gilt & blind in the Romantic style, spines divided into seven compartments with gilt tooling or lettering, a.e.g. Paris: Imprimerie Royale [Vols. I-VI]; Suivant la Copie de l'Imprimerie Royale [VII-X], 1771-72-74-77-78-83-83-83-84-86. A magnificent large-paper set, finely bound, of "one of the early and important landmarks in the history of ornithology" (Zimmer), richly illustrated with 973 engraved plates, all very finely handcolored, and with the addition of fourteen of the original watercolors by François Nicolas Martinet, the artist for the entire work. This set, in very fine condition, is the "most ambitious and comprehensive bird book...[and] ranks still as one of the most important of all bird books from the collector's point of view."-Fine Bird Books, p. 63. In 1765, at Buffon's direction, Martinet began the enormous project of drawing, painting, and engraving the plates. In the course of production over eighty artists and assistants were engaged, ultimately producing 973 ornithological plates. An additional 35 plates depicting animals, reptiles, insects, and corals were produced at the same time, but they are not mentioned in the body of the text; it is common to find most sets without them (as in the present set). This work was issued in four formats: the large and ordinary paper folio sets were issued with handcolored plates by and after François Martinet. Quarto and 12mo issues were also produced, illustrated with a series of black-and-white plates drawn by de Sève. As mentioned above, this set has been enriched with fourteen of the original watercolors by Martinet bound-in. They are: 1. Hirondelle de Mer, de Cayenne (Vol. IX, 988), unsigned but by Martinet 2. Oye, des terres Magellaniques (Vol. IX, 1006), unsigned but by Martinet 3. Canard musqué (Vol. X, 989), signed "Martinet" 4. Canard, de Miclon (Vol. X, 1008), signed "Martinet" 5. Millouinars (Vol. X, 1002), signed "Martinet" 6. Le Morillon (Vol. X, 1001), signed "Martinet" 7. Canard du Nord (Vol. X, 995), signed "Martinet" 8. Canard Brun (Vol. X, 1007), signed "Martinet" 9. Sarcelle d'Égypte (Vol. X, 1000), signed "Martinet" 10. Sarcelle, de l'isle de Férroë (Vol. X, 999), signed "Martinet" 11. Le Pétrel, ou l'oiseau-Tempête (Vol. X, 993), the engraved plate has been signed by Martinet but the drawing is definitely by him. 12. Le Pingoin (Vol. X, 1003), signed "Martinet" 13. Femelle du Pingouin (Vol. X, 1004), signed "Martinet" 14. Mancho des Hottentots (Vol. X, 1005), again the engraved plate has been signed by Martinet but the drawing is by him. This pagination of this copy collates according to Zimmer with the directions to the binder and errata at the end of each volume. In some copies the first volume is dated 1770. A fine set. Several upper joints with some barely noticeable and minor repairs. ❧ Anker 76-"one of the chief works of ornithological literature." Nissen 158. Zimmer, pp. 104-06. .

        La science absolue de l'espace indépendante de la vérité ou de la fausseté de l'axiôme XI d'Euclide (que l'on ne pourra jamais établir a priori); suivi de la quadrature géométrique du cercle, dans le cas de la fausseté de l'Axiôme XI... Précédé d'une Notice sur la Vie et les Travaux de W. et de J. Bolyai par M. Fr. Schmidt.Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1868.

      First separate edition, presentation copy from the translator, of the first vernacular translation of the famous <i>Appendix</i> by Janos Bolyai, one of the most important works in the history of mathematics. This <i>Appendix</i>, together with the independent work of Nikolai Lobachevsky, constitute the founding works of non-Euclidean geometry.<br/><br/> Janos began working on his new geometry in 1820. Although his father Farkas had himself worked on the possibilities of a non-Euclidean geometry from his earliest days as a mathematician in Göttingen, and had corresponded with Gauss on the subject (even sending him a manuscript entitled <i>Theoria parallelarum</i>), he tried to discourage Janos from attempting to prove or refute Euclid's fifth postulate: 'You should not tempt the parallels in this way. I know this way until its end - I also have measured this bottomless night. I have lost in it every light, every joy of my life ... You should shy away from it as if from lewd discourse, it can deprive you of all your leisure, your health, your peace of mind and your entire happiness. This infinite darkness might perhaps absorb a thousand giant Newtonian towers, it will never be light on earth, and the miserable human race will never have something absolutely pure, not even geometry' (quoted from DSB). <br/><br/> Despite his reservations, Farkas sent the manuscript of Janos's work to Gauss, who replied that he could not praise it because he himself had reached the same conclusions some 30 years earlier although he had not published his discovery! This assertion so discouraged Janos that it effectively ended his career as a creative mathematician, but his manuscript was published in 1832 as <i>Appendix. Scientiam spatii absolute veram exhibens: a veritate aut falsitate Axiomatis XI Euclidei (a priori haud unquam decidenda) independentem to his father's large textbook Tentamen juventutem studiosam in elementa matheseos purae, elementaris ac sublimioris, methodo intuitiva, evidentiaque huic propria, introducendi</i>. Printed in a small edition (probably around 150 copies) by an obscure Hungarian college publisher, in a small town in Transylvania, the work remained a forgotten masterpiece until, 35 years later, Riemann's paper <i>Über die Hypothesen, welche der Geometrie zu Grunde liegen</i> reawakened interest in this field. <br/><br/> This translation first appeared at the end of 1867 in <i>Mémoires de la Société des Sciences physique et naturelles de Bordeaux</i> (pp. 189-248) with the present first separate edition appearing a few months later. The translation is preceded by a "Translator's Note" (pp. 5-6) and "Notice on the life and work of the Hungarian mathematicians Wolfgang [Farkas] Bolyai and Janos Bolyai" by Franz Schmidt (pp. 7-21). <br/><br/> After gaining a doctorate for research in celestial mechanics at the Sorbonne in 1855, Jules Hoüel (1823-86) was appointed to the chair of pure mathematics in the Faculty of Science at Bordeaux in 1859 and held this post until his death. Hoüel became interested in non-Euclidean geometry once he had been made aware of the work of Bolyai and Lobachevsky. He published his own <i>Essai d'une exposition rationnelle des principes fondamentaux de la géométrie</i> in 1863, a copy of which fell by chance into the hands of one Franz Schmidt, a young architect from Temesvár in Hungary. Schmidt wrote to Hoüel for advice on continuing his mathematical studies; Hoüel answered helpfully, and later sought Schmidt's help in procuring Bolyai's work. Schmidt succeeded in finding two copies of Bolyai's work for Hoüel: one Hoüel proceeded to translate himself, the other he sent to Giuseppe Battaglini, asking him to make Bolyai's work known in Italy. Battaglini published his Italian translation of the <i>Appendix in Giornale di matematiche</i> in 1868. <br/><br/> Giusto Bellavitis (1803-80) is known for his geometrical calculus which influenced Grassmann's <i>Ausdehnungslehre</i>, for his contributions to algebraic geometry, and for his work in the history of mathematics (he vindicated Pietro Cataldi by attributing to him the invention of continued fractions). <br/><br/> DSB II: 269-71; Bonola, <i>Non-Euclidean geometry</i>, pp. 122-5; Dibner 116; Evans 13; Horblit 69b; Norman 259; Parkinson pp. 295 & 296 (all referring to the first edition of 1832)..

        Veduta dell'entrata del Porto di Livorno presa dalla parte del mare. Dedicata al Nobil Uomo Sig. Gio. Francesco Spannocchi Piccolomini, Cavaliere dell'Insigne ordine di Santo Stefano..

      Livorno, presso Pietro Ciardi, 1820 circa. Incisione in rame all'acquaforte, b/n, cm 42 x 52,5 (alla lastra) più margini. Bella e importante veduta animata del porto della città di Livorno incisa dal W. F. Gmelin, sono visibili la fortezza vecchia e parte della città, le colline sullo sfondo. L'autore (Badenweiler, 1760 ? Roma, 1820), incisore di Scuola tedesca, allievo della buona scuola di Christian van Mechel a Basilea. Il suo apprendistato incisorio fu rivolto al versante del paesaggio, ma anche del ritratto e della stampa architettonica. Il trasferimento a Roma, nel 1787, in corrispondenza con l'inizio della stagione dell'incisione neoclassica in Italia, ne orienterà invece definitivamente gli esiti in direzione paesaggistica, facendo della sua attività grafica ed editoriale un importante fattore di raccordo fra la tradizione locale e le nuove influenze cosmopolite di direzione più apertamente romantica. In questo fu determinante l'influenza di Jacob Philipp Hackert, il quale, l'anno successivo, lo invitò a raggiungerlo a Napoli per tradurre a stampa alcuni suoi dipinti con vedute di Baia e Pozzuoli. Ma il soggiorno napoletano era destinato a concludersi già nel 1790, quando il Gmelin tornò a Roma col progetto di iniziare in proprio un'attività di incisore ed editore, che fu assai valida. Esemplare in margini e in ottimo stato di conservazione.

        METHODE DE LYRE et Romances.

      s.l.n.d. (c.1820). - MANUSCRIT in-4 oblong. 37ff. et 20ff.blancs (avec des portées vides). Plein maroquin bleu nuit, dos lisse orné, roulette dorée autour des plats, inscription en lettres dorées sur le plat supérieur: "Mme. la Comtesse Dorsenne" (reliure de l'époque, un peu restaurée, gardes partiellement renouvelées). Précieux manuscrit musical provenant de la bibliothèque de la Comtesse d'Orsenne, épouse de l'un des généraux les plus connus de Napoléon. Cette méthode de lyre ne concerne pas l'instrument bien connu de l'Antiquité Grecque, fameux attribut d'Hermès, mais plutôt un spectaculaire modèle de guitare à six cordes appelé guitare-lyre, inventée à la faveur du goût néo-classique de l'Empire et qui eut son heure de gloire au début du 19e siècle. "Description de la lyre, ou guitare à six cordes", "Du manche", "Des touches", "Des divisions, ou cazes", "Dénomination des cordes", "De la main gauche", "De la main droite", "De l'arpège", "Du doigter et du pincer", "Des positions", "De la demi-position", "Des barres", "de la gamme", "Exercices en batterie ou arpèges dans les tons usités", "Du son porté", "De la chûte", "De la plainte", "De la fusée et de la tirade", etc. A la suite de la méthode proprement dite, se trouvent de nombreux morceaux destinés à être joués au moyen de l'instrument; il s'agit, pour la plupart, de romances de compositeurs en vogue à cette époque: Boieldieu, Dalayrac, Plantade, etc. Il n'existe pas, à notre connaissance, de méthode imprimée spécifiquement pour l'apprentissage de la guitare-lyre et le présent manuscrit constitue une indéniable rareté de la littérature sur la guitare. Très bel exemplaire relié à l'époque en maroquin, avec le nom de la Comtesse Dorsenne frappé en lettres dorées sur le plat supérieur. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
