        Marriage A-la-mode.

      . The complete suite of six prints with the image of each measuring 14" x 17" with the title engraved within the plate lines below each image. This suite of prints is from the 1821 restrike by Thomas Cooke. Rich with Hogarth's characteristic allegory and satire, this suite of engravings depicts the "marriage a la mode" (an arranged marriage for the mutual profit of the parents) between the vainglorious son of the bankrupt Lord Squanderfield and the unwilling daughter of a rich merchant. The unhappy union, fraught with mutual despairs and adulteries, and its tragic end are vividly recounted. Each engraving has been professionally cleaned, deacidified, and matted in acid-free materials ready for framing. These images are clean, clear and bright and will provide hours of pleasurable study of Hogarth's observations and satiric commentary of eighteenth century English society at about one-third of the cost of the original impressions of 1735. Paulson 228-233.

        A Harlot's Progress.

      . The complete suite of six prints with the image of each measuring approximately 12" x 15". Engraved titles and publication credit appears below each image within the plate lines. This suite of prints is from the 1821 restrike by Thomas Cooke. The dire consequences of moral laxity, a recurrent theme in Hogarth's work, are presented in this tragic tale of an innocent country girl's sojourn to the city. In these six plates, Hogarth tracks Mary Hackabout's desperate plight, from her arrival in the city into the hands of the notorious procuress, Mother Needham, to her transformation into a kept mistress, street moll, prisoner, and disease-ridden invalid, to her inevitable death from syphilis. Each engraving has been professionally cleaned, deacidified, and matted in acid-free materials ready for framing. These images are clean, clear and bright and will provide hours of pleasurable study of Hogarth's observations and satiric commentary of eighteenth century English society at about one-third of the cost of the original impressions of 1735. Paulson 121-26.

"Conversations-lexikon" blev den första encyklopedin som trycktes i Sverige och var baserad på tyska Brockhaus konversationslexikon. I början använde sig översättaren Carl Adam Blidenberg av första upplagan, men från och med bokstaven C hade han tillgång till den modernare femte upplagan. Verket slog an en anspråkslös ton och förmedlade med egna ord kunskaper och upplysningar om "intressanta ämnen för en bildad conversation". Några vetenskapliga pretentioner hade det inte. Vissa ämnesområden var av utrymmesskäl helt förbigångna, t.ex. svensk geografi för vilket utgivaren hänvisade till Djurbergs olika lexika. De påtagligaste kunskapsluckorna täpptes i någon mån till på 1830-talet med supplementhäftena som här börjar som del 9

        A Treatise of Algebra: Wherein the Principles are Demonstrated, and Applied in Many Useful and Interesting Inquiries, and in the Resolution of a Great Variety of Problems of Different Kinds

      Printed for M. Carey & Sons ... Philadelphia: Printed for M. Carey & Sons, .... 1821. First. Second American edition, revised, corrected and improved. Octavo. 408pp. Rebound in modern quarter brown morocco and cloth boards, with morocco label gilt. Binding has light wear, and a slight crease to one corner, and is near fine; there is foxing and edgewear in the text, overall very good. Joseph Ray's copy with his ownership signature and the price he paid for the book on the first blank: "Joseph Ray, Cincinnati, Ohio. $1.50." Also laid in between page 280 and 281 is a small slip of paper (approximately 4" x 5") signed "Ray" and with complex equations on each side. Ray was a professor of mathematics and wrote several books on the subject, beginning in 1834 with An Introduction to Ray's Eclectic Arithmetic, the first of a series of six textbooks which became the most popular and widely used American mathematics textbooks of the Nineteenth Century. They also formed the basis for Ray's Mathematical Series of textbooks. As late as 1913, annual sales exceeded a quarter of a million copies a year, and total sales of the arithmetic books alone are estimated at 120 million copies. The success of Ray's Arithmetic series prompted his publisher to seek an author for a set of readers. They chose William Holmes McGuffey, who joined Ray on the faculty of Woodward College, and where he wrote the McGuffey Readers which surpassed even Ray's Arithmetics to become the most popular textbooks ever written. .

Writing in 1935 Bathe says of it "There is to this day, at least one mill owner known to the writer, who has a copy of Oliver Evans' Mill-wright in his office to which he says quite frankly he refers often, considering it is still in many repects the most practical work for millers ever published". As a practical handbook it is hardly surprising that copies, where they have survived, are usually in poor condition.

        A Treatise of Fluxions. In Two Books.Edinburgh: T.W. and T. Ruddimans, 1742. First edition.

      A very fine copy of "the earliest logical and systematic publication of the Newtonian methods. It stood as a model of rigor until the appearance of Cauchy's Cours d'Analyse in 1821." (DSB). <br/><br/> "Despite the great progress of analysis during the 18th century, foundational questions remained largely unsolved. ... The most influential criticism of the new analysis was put forward by the famous English philosopher George Berkeley [in his pamphlet The Analyst, 1734]. ... Berkeley's criticism was well informed and efficient. Rooted in the tradition of English sensualism, he showed that many definitions in the infinitesimal calculus are paradoxical and cannot be justified by intuition. He explained the success of the new calculus by a repeated neglect of infinitely small quantities leading through a compensation of errors to a correct answer." (Jahnke: A History of Analysis, 127). <br/><br/> "The most authoritative answer to Berkeley came from Maclaurin, one of the most talented of Newton's disciples. In his Treatise of Fluxions (1742), he tried to show that infinitesimals were used by Newton only to abbreviate proofs; these proofs could be re-expanded, following the style of the De Quadratura (1704), in terms of limits. Furthermore, Maclaurin elaborated the idea that Newtonian proofs in terms of limits were equivalent to the venerated method of exhaustion of the ancient Greek mathematicians. Newton's 'method of prime and ultimate ratios' was just the direct version of the indirect (ad absurdum) method of Archimedes. " (Grattan-Guinness: Companion Encyclopedia, 314). <br/><br/> "This treatise is especially valuable for the solutions it contains of numerous problems in geometry, statics, the theory of attractions, and astronomy. To solve these Maclaurin reverted to classical methods, and so powerful did these processes seem, when used by him, that Clairaut, after reading the work, abandoned analysis, and attacked the problem of the figure of the earth again by pure geometry. At a later time this part of the book was described by Lagrange as the 'chef-d'aeuvre de géométrie qu'on peut comparer á tout ce qu'Archiméde nous a laissé de plus beau et de ingénieux .' Maclaurin also determined the attraction of a homogeneous ellipsoid at an internal point, and gave some theorems on its attraction at an external point; in attacking these questions he introduced the conception of level surfaces, that is, surfaces at every point of which the resultant attraction is perpendicular to the surface. No further advance in the theory of attractions was made until Lagrange in 1773 introduced the idea of the potential. Maclaurin also showed that a spheroid was a possible form of equilibrium of a mass of homogeneous liquid rotating about an axis passing through its center of mass. Finally he discussed the tides; this part had been previously published (in 1740) and had received a prize from the French Academy." (Ball: A Short Account of the History of Mathematics, 317-18). <br/><br/> "The Fluxions contained for the first time the correct way of distinguishing between maxima and minima, and explained their use in the theory of multiple points." (Cajori: A History of Mathematics, 228-29). <br/><br/> "It contains an elaborate discussion of infinite series, including Maclaurin's text for convergence, as well as a remarkable investigation on curves of quickest descent and various isoperimetrical problems. Maclaurin also elaborated many of the principles enunciated by Newton in the Principia in this work, included problems in applied geometry and physics, grounded on the geometry of Euclid." (DSB). <br/><br/> Norman 1408; Honeyman 2084.. Two volumes. 4to: (245 x 185 mm), uncut , pp (6), VI, 412; (2:title), 413-763, (1:errata) and 41 engraved folding plates (numbered 1-25; 25-40) [complete].

        Decreto dell' 8 gennaio 1813, di NAPOLEONE PRIMO, che stabilisce la pensione a CORVISART, , 1821

      Documento di importanza storica redatto in copia autentica in Parigi il 28 settembre 1821, sul decreto Napoleonico del 1 gennaio 1813. con il quale l'Imperatore stabilisce la pensione di 12.726 franchi e 24 centesimi al suo "Primo medico " CORVISART JEAN NICOLAS, BARONE, (nato a Dridourt nelle Ardenne nel 1755 e scomparso a Parigi nel 1821) L'investitura avvenne nel 1801 e Corvisart , proprio per il suo delicato ruolo, visse sempre nelle "vicinanze" dell'Imperatore, ed anche di Suoi famigliari (MARIA LUIGIA , duchessa di Parma , il Re di Roma, ed altri) Il documento (mm. 200 x 320) è manoscritto su nove facciate, nelle ultime insistono 3 bolli e 4 sottoscrizioni di funzionari ministeriali francesi. Ottimo stato, legato con cordicella. E' un documento assai importante per la storia del Dipartimento dell'Arno e della TOSCANA : vi sono elencati gli istituti che erano tenuti a pagare, ognuno per la propria parte, la pensione al Corvisart. Per metà si tratta di numerose compagnie religiose e di Benefici ecclesiastici, con relative indicazioini della qualifica, del luogo ove si trovavano, delle persone costituite come debitrici e delle relative somme da pagare. L'altra metà era costituita dalla "MAGONA DEL FERRO di PISTOIA" e da altre industrie toscane per la lavorazione dei metalli. Può essere un valido strrumento di ricerca della storia toscana del periodo napoleonico !

        Journal of a Voyage for the Discovery of a Northwest Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific; Performed in the years 1818-1820, in His Majesty's Ships Hecla and Griperâ?¦ With an Appendix Containing the Scientific and Other Observations

      John Murray London: John Murray, 1821. Second Edition. 4to (10 3/4x8 1/4), period marbled boards, rebacked with calf spine, spine label, illustrated with 14 aquatint or engraved plates, 6 charts & maps (4 of them folding), [8], xxix, [3], 310, [2], clxxix, [1], + [1] ad pp. Lacks errata slip present in the first edition, minor wear to old boards, light offset to some of the charts, old library label on front pastedown. A very nice clean copy. Handsome second edition of Parry's (1790-1855) first voyage seeking the Northwest Passage. This edition contains lots of information and illustrations about the journey that took place between May 1819 and October 1820. In Seeking a Northwest Passage the Hecla and Griper commanded by Parry "sailed up Baffin Bay, through the Lancaster Sound and the Barrow Strait to the south side of Melville Island where they wintered (Winter Harbour), and returned to England by the same route the next year. The expedition discovered and penetrated a short distance into Prince Regent's Inlet, discoverred Banks Island, and surveyed the south shores of Barrow Strait." Parry gives a lot of detail about all the discoveries, and how he prepared the ship for wintering. He even talks about scurvy and snow blindness, and in one of the appendices gives the reader a feel for the daily work routine. Arctic Bibliography 13145.

        Autograph letter signed to Charles Hutton

      1821. Gregory, Olinthus Gilbert (1774-1841). Autograph letter signed to Dr. [Charles] Hutton (1737-1823). 1 sheet, mounted. Woolwich Common, May 16, 1821. 223 x 181 mm. Light soiling along crease, but very good. Dr. Hutton?s signature in the lower left corner, along with note attesting to the signature?s authorship.From British mathematician and writer Olinthus Gregory, professor of mathematics at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich from 1807 to 1838, author of works on mathematics, astronomy, mechanics, etc., co-founder of the Royal Astronomical Society, and editor of both the Gentleman?s Diary and Ladies? Diary. His correspondent, English mathematician Charles Hutton, served as professor of mathematics at the Royal Military Academy from 1773 to 1807; when he retired he was succeeded by Gregory. Gregory, who began teaching mathematics at the Academy in 1802, owed his position there to Hutton?s influence.Gregory?s letter refers to the recent death of ?poor Bonnycastle?; i.e. John Bonnycastle (1751-1821), another professor of mathematics at the Royal Military Academy, whose post Gregory evidently aspired to. ?Colonel Ford has written to the Duke of Wellington to-day to recommend me as his successor: but I do not apprehend his Grace will decide very rapidly, as I believe he loves to show his power by keeping places vacant.? Arthur Wellesley, first Duke of Wellington (1769-1852), was then serving as Master-General of the Ordnance; his duties included oversight of the Royal Military Academy, which trained commissioned officers for the Royal Artillery and Royal Engineers.

        Essays on the Formation and Publication of Opinions, and on Other Subjects

      London: Printed for R. Hunter.. 1821 First edition. Bailey's first book which was considered by well-informed radicals of the 1820s to be "the most useful single addition to the moral sciences since the Wealth of Nations" (William H. Wickwar, The Struggle for the Freedom of the Press, 1819-1832, London, 1928, p. 246). The Essays on the Formation and Publication of Opinion were praised by James Mill in the Westminster Review for July 1826 and later by the American Thomas Cooper in the preface of his own Treatise on the Law of Libel and the Liberty of the Press (1830). . Original boards, uncut, neatly rebacked. . Octavo. A few rust stains and spots in blank margins, but a fine, crisp copy. Bailey [1791-1870] was an independent and slightly isolated thinker, who, though generally admiring of Thomas Brown, was a keen utilitarian critic of Scottish common sense. Politically he was a philosophical radical; indeed, he was occasionally described as the 'Hallamshire Bentham,' while in theology he was a devotee of the American theologian Jonathan Edwards" (Dictionary of Nineteenth-Century British Philosophers). Bailey also occupies an important place in the history of economic analysis through his Critical Dissertation on the Nature, Measures and Causes of Value… (1823). This work on Ricardo, rediscovered by Seligman in 1905, was judged by Schumpeter (1954) to be a "masterpiece of criticism" and to lie near the "front rank in the history of scientific economics.
