        L'Art de v?rifier les Dates depuis l'ann?e 1770 jusqu'? nos jours

      squ' nos jours 1821 - A scarce, first edition set of this continuation of thegreat chronological work Art de vrifier les dates. An interesting and important work that uses a series of chronological tables to accurately date a wide rangeof international, historicalevents, this sequel to the original - which dealt with early history, including the ancient Greeks and Romans and their international contemporaries - focuses on events from 1770 to the time of publication. The first version of this work was undertaken by numerous authors; begun by Maur-Dantine - whose name the work still bears here - it was taken over, due to illness,by the French Benedictine historian Charles Clemencet (1703-1778) who aided greatly in the work's completion and issued it in one volume in the 1760s. In 1770a greatly revised edition was published by the French historian Francois Clement (1714-1793), and, following further significant alterations - including amendments to the anti-Jesuit bent of the original - published a third edition, in three folio volumes, in 1787. Clment was engaged in the preparation of a fourth and much enlarged edition when a stroke of apoplexy caused his death. The unfinished work was completed by the Frenchgenealogist and litterateur Nicolas Viton de Saint-Allais and appeared with additional matter in 1818-19. This continuation was written by a variety of Maurist scholars, with the first phase (1821-1829)published by the Chevalier de Courcelles andthe next by the Marquis of Urban Fortia. Together the complete Art de vrifier les dates has been called the finest memorial of French learning of the eighteenth century and this is certainly evident in this veritable compendium of scholarship. This set also contains the Table - or index - which was published around 1830. Text in the original French. Complete in 19 volumes. Condition: In a quarter morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally, a trifle rubbed with some heavier wear to extremities and backstrips, which are faded. Large watermark to front board of volume III - internally unaffected - and some minor loss to paper of volume XXVII rear board. Internally, firmly bound. Pages bright and clean with just some occasional small spots or handling marks. Overall: GOOD. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Un Mot Sur Les Deux Proces-Verbaux Dresses Apres La Mort de S.A.R

      1821. Forestier, J[ean]-B[aptiste]-A[ntoine]-G[aspard]. Un Mot Sur Les Deux Proces-Verbaux Dresses Apres La Mort de S.A.R. Mgr. le Duc de Berri, Et Consequences a en Tirer par Rapport au Gouvernement et a la Societe. Paris: Imprimerie de Chaignieau, Jeune, 1821. 48 pp. Two added tipped-in color plates of the Duke and Dutchess de Berry. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5"). Stab-stitched pamphlet bound into contemporary stiff-wrappers covered in contemporary wallpaper, hand-lettered title panel pasted to front. Light shelfwear to boards, spine abraded, most of backstrip worn away, a few cracks to text block, binding secure. Engraved bookplate of Cardinal Ernest-Louis Dubois [1856-1929], Archbishop of Paris, to front pastedown. Toning and light foxing to text, internally clean. A rare title. * In February 1820, Charles-Ferdinand, Duke of Berry, the last living male in the Bourbon line, was stabbed to death in front of the Paris Opera by an apparently deranged citizen. The murder (or as some claimed, assassination) had profound repercussions for French society and closed the final chapter of the Bourbon dynasty. The present work critiques the official coroner's reports following the assassination. The author describes himself as "Ancien Chirurgien de l'Hotel-Dieu, membre des ci-devant colleges et academie royale de Chirurgie, ancien professeur particulier d'accouchemens et membre eligible du college electoral du departement." OCLC locates 2 copies, both in France. Not in the Harvard Law Catalogue.

        Leçons sur le Calcul diffcrentiel.Paris: Chez de Bure Frères, 1829.

      First edition, very rare. Following his earlier textbooks, the <i>Cours d'Analyse</i> (1821) and <i>Rcsumc des Leçons</i> (1823), which provided the first rigorous formulation of the calculus of functions of a real variable, Cauchy in this work for the first time treats complex functions of a complex variable, defining their derivatives and extending to them many of the results of the differential calculus of a real variable obtained in the <i>Rcsumc</i>, most notably Taylor's theorem. "The discoveries with which Cauchy's name is most firmly associated in the minds of both pure and applied mathematicians are without doubt his fundamental theorems on complex functions" (DSB). Cauchy also develops here a fully-fledged theory of infinitesimals, in many ways anticipating work of du Bois-Reymond in the late 19th century.<br/><br/> The twenty-three <i>Leçons</i> of the present work present the results on differential calculus from the first part of the <i>Rcsumc</i>, but in much greater detail (and almost three times the length). Most significant, however, is that Cauchy here extends the results from the <i>Rcsumc</i> to the case of complex functions of a complex variable. This begins with the 11th <i>Leçon</i>, in which complex functions of a complex variable are introduced, the next <i>Leçon</i> giving the definition of the derivatives (and differentials) of such functions, and continues with the 13th <i>Leçon</i> which gives the extension of Taylor's theorem to the complex case. Further discussions of complex functions are found throughout the remaining <i>Leçons</i>. It is important to note that, although functions of a complex variable had been considered in earlier works by Cauchy, notably in his <i>Mémoire sur les intégrales définies, prises entre des limites imaginaires</i> (1825), those works had been concerned exclusively with the integration of such functions along paths in the complex plane (in modern terminology), and not on the properties of the functions themselves or their derivatives. <br/><br/> The present work is also important for containing Cauchy's first and only fully-fledged theory of infinitesimals. The informal use of infinitesimals in the development of calculus began with Leibniz and Newton, but a more precise notion of infinitesimal had to wait until Cauchy's <i>Cours</i>. Although Cauchy is widely recognized for having introduced rigour into calculus, in fact he rarely used (even implicitly) the 'epsilon-delta' type of argument favoured by modern textbooks. Most of his arguments are, in fact, couched in the language of infinitesimals. But even the <i>Rcsumc</i> considers only the simplest kind of functions of a base infinitesimal, namely polynomials. Cauchy announces in the <i>Prcliminaires</i> of the present work his intention to develop a far more general theory of infinitesimals, and this is carried out in the 6th <i>Leçon</i>, 'On the derivatives of functions which represent infinitely small quantities'. Cauchy defines the order of a function of an infinitesimal (which can by a real number or <i>+&#8734;</i>), and gives examples of functions whose orders are <i>0 and <i>+&#8734;</i>. Laugwitz has seen this as an anticipation of work of du Bois-Reymond and others in the late 19th century, and E. Borel, in his <i>Leçons sur les Scries à Termes positifs</i> (1902), explicitly refers to the 1829 <i>Leçons</i> in his discussion of du Bois-Reymond's work. The use of infinitesimals was only fully accepted by mathematicians following the work of Abraham Robinson in 1961. <br/><br/> The present <i>Leçons</i> also contain some notable contributions to proving the existence of, and finding approximations for, the roots of algebraic and transcendental equations. The 14th <i>Leçon</i> proves a number of theorems on the existence of roots, which allow Cauchy to give, in particular, a new proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra. Finally, in a <i>Note</i> following the 23rd <i>Leçon</i>, Cauchy uses Taylor series to develop methods of finding approximate roots, recovering and extending results of Fourier. <br/><br/> Very rare, we have located only one copy at auction in the past 35 years. <br/><br/> D. Laugwitz, 'Infinitely small quantities in Cauchy's textbooks', <i>Historia Mathematica</i> 14 (1987), 258-274.. 4to (245 x 197 mm), pp. [iv] ii [2] 289 [3], contemporary stiff boards with gilt spine label, some light spotting throughout but in general fine

        Autograph verse, signed

      26 Oct. 1821. Single leaf measuring 7 3/8 by 8 1/2 inches, with small embossed stamp in upper left corner. Wordsworth writes out a six-line stanza from "The Epistle to William Simson" by Robert Burns, which reads, in full: "O Nature! a&#39; thy shews an&#39; forms/ To feeling, pensive hearts hae charms/ Whether the summer kindly warms/ Wi&#39; life an light;/ Or winter howls, in gusty storms, The lang, dark night!" Wordsworth is believed to have been one of Burns&#39;s earliest English admirers, and Burns&#39;s influence on Wordsworth is well-documented and extensive. Leaf shows some slightly irregular trimming and has been mounted. Scattered light foxing, mostly to margins, otherwise very good.

      1821 - addressed to Mr Wadeson, solicitor of Austin Friars, Probert being in jail for bankruptcy (declared 5th July 1819), he writes that he feels "extremely hurt that the Afft. was obliged to be returned to you unsworn by me . I informed the Magistrate that I could not swear to 2 or 3 Hundred Pounds . he refused me to see yr Clerk notwithstanding he was in the Lodge . I further told him the money was due to the Estate notwithstanding I received a small part of it in the Bench", the Magistrate said "if I swore to the a/c in its present state I might . be indicted for perjury", otherwise Probert would need to explain the account to the Commissioners (4th September 1821), he sends "the Account of the Goods that can be sworn" which "John Pritchard my Carman can prove" (8th September 1821), "If you go an enquire in Frith Street Soho, you must go to the Bakers shops & the Public Houses you will find Col. Gould . he as at this time Plenty of mony I have only heard this mo[rnin]g . it is of course no use to ask him . in a Friendly way, the debt is £31-1-0", he details other debts to his Estate ('Tuesday', ?11th September 1821), he is still asking "whether it will be proper for me to sware to the whole Mount of the Bills having received a part, as they are due to the Estate - as you say the money I have received is illegal . the Afft. must be drawn up accordingly", (13th September 1821), with the first side of a draft Affidavit, saying that "William Holden of Devonshire Street, Queen Square", another bankrupt wine-merchant, owes Probert's assignees £3359.10.7, together 7 sides 4to with conjugate address leaves and 1 side folio, Brixton Penitentiary, 4th September - 13th September Probert was involved in one of the most notorious murder trials in English judicial history, that of Thurtell and Hunt for the murder of William Weare. It was one of the last cases to be heard under the Tudor 'inquisitorial' system, and the first significant trial by newspaper, during which there was considerable friction between the Bench and the Press. Thurtell was found guilty and executed, Hunt was transported, but the case against Probert was abandoned. However, he was executed two years later for horse-stealing.

        Cours d'analyse de l'Ecole Polytechnique Royale 1.re Partie. Analyse algébrique. [all published].Paris: de Bure, 1821.

      Rare first edition of his great textbook in which "Cauchy gave the foundation of the calculus as we now generally accept it". (D.J. Struik) <br/><br/> Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics, no. 25. <br/><br/> In this work "Cauchy laid out a theory of limits, and upon its basis he constructed the basic theory of real-variable functions and of the convergence of infinite series; and also the calculus, in the approach that eventually was to dominate all others." (Grattan-Guinness). <br/><br/> Cauchy wrote five textbooks and more than 800 papers and is, therefore, next to Euler, the most productive mathematician who ever lived. "In his greatest contribution to mathematics, Cauchy provided a first phase of satisfactory foundations for mathematical analysis. He presented some of these foundations in his classic 'Cours d'analyse de l'École Royale Polytechnique' (1821) by refining the notions of limit, continuity, function, and convergence.

        Veduta di porzione degli avanzi dell&#39;Ambulacro del piano terra nel Colosseo

      Rome.. 1821.. Copperplate engraving, 18 1/4 x 15 1/4 inches on sheet size 30 1/4 x 20 1/2. Light scattered foxing, mainly in outer margins, a few 1/4 inch tears to outer edges and chip to upper left corner of sheet (not affecting image), dampstain to upper left margin (outside plate area), pieces of adhesive tape along verso of right edge (not visible from front), soft undulations to paper. A very good impression. Ground level view of a portion of the remains of the Colosseum. This impressive engraving by Luigi Rossini (1790-1857) is from the Le Antichita Romane series, depicting the antiquities of Rome and environs. Carrying on the tradition of Giovanni Battista Piranesi (1720-1778) and himself an architect, Rossini&#39;s prints celebrated the Classical Tradition and appealed to the well-to-do tourists on the Grand Tour and to architects and designers. The engravings powerfully evoke the glories of Ancient Rome, while also providing the modern viewer with glimpses of this magnificent city in the early 19th century. .

        The Works of William Robertson

      London - T. Cadell, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. The complete historical works of William Robertson, Scottish historian. Containing The History of Scotland during the Reigns of Queen Mary, and of King James VI (Volumes I-III), The History of the Reign of the Emperor Charles V (Volumes IV-VI), The History of America (Volumes VII-IX), and An Historical Disquisition concerning the Knowledge which the Ancients had of India and the Progress of Trade with that Country (Volume X). The History of Scotland was a huge success because Robertson appeared to his readers to move Scotland into the mainstream of polite culture. His study of elocution and style had enabled him to craft prose that was harmonious, balanced, and, above all, correct metropolitan English. In the field of historical writing in particular no one had yet achieved such a magisterial style. Though occupied with church and university, Robertson was also engaged on his next history, the work that he hoped would enhance his European reputation. By the end of 1759 he was firmly decided upon the history of the reign of Charles V. The book&#39;s structure initially was a conventional political narrative, related in chronological order and centred on Charles&#39;s life and career. After the publication of Charles V, Robertson quickly turned to a new historical project, and on 28 May 1777 the History of America was published in two volumes, again to a very positive reception. Its success was even more marked on the continent, where it was considered Robertson&#39;s masterpiece (in Suard&#39;s translation), and went through nine editions between 1777 and 1780. Robertson&#39;s regained vigour also led him to a new historical work, and so An Historical Disquisition Concerning the Knowledge which the Ancients had of India was published in a single volume on 4 June 1791. The Disquisition falls into two main parts: the first two-thirds is a narrative of the commercial contacts India had with the outside world from ancient times to the sixteenth century; the remainder is a long appendix describing Indian culture. The narrative portion documents, gathers, and summarizes familiar but scattered material; the appendix is broadly descriptive and more innovative, following the pattern developed in the descriptive chapters of the History of America. (DNB)With an account of Robertson&#39;s life by Dugald StewartWith frontispiece engraving of Robertson to volume I, and folding maps to Volume VII, VIII, IX and X (six folding plates in total, collated complete). A new edition, complete in ten volumes. Condition: In full calf bindings. Externally sound, though rubbed. Some wear to heads of spines. Internally, firmly bound.

Early one-half calf leather, spine lettered in gilt and with gilt panel lines and other gilt decorations, over original marbled boards with matching marbled endpapers, most volumes with tissue guards present, thick 4to (10 3/4 x 8 1/2 inches). Zimmer (pp. 376-377) states: &#39;A new edition of the author&#39;s "General Synopsis of Birds," 1781-85 (q.v.), rewritten and enlarged to include the species treated in the two supplements to that work as well as forms discovered since their publication.&#39; This major work attempted to cover all bird species from every part of the known world with special emphasis on Australia and the South Seas. Latham is often known as the "grandfather of Australian ornithology" due to his descriptions of birds collected in Phillip&#39;s Voyage to Botany Bay published in 1789. Latham was the first to describe a number of important Australian species such as the lyre-bird, the white cockatoo and the emu. As a founding member of the Linnean Society, Latham was very well connected in ornithological circles in England. This gave him access to many recently discovered bird specimens that reached London from the South Seas, Australia and elsewhere. For a complete collation, see Zimmer 376-377; see also Anker 277-278, Wood 427, Nissen 532 and Fine Bird Books (1990) 114. Attractive bookplate of Thomas Perry on the front endpaper.

        L&#39;Italie

      Paris - Pierre Dufart, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Thecomplete four volumefirst French edition of&#39;L&#39;Italie&#39;byLady Morgan (December 1781 April 1859), an Irish novelist best known as the author of The Wild Irish Girl. Morgan was one of the most vivid and hotly discussed literary figures of her generation. She began her career with a precocious volume of poems. She collected Irish tunes, for which she composed the words, thus setting a fashion adopted with signal success by Thomas Moore. Italy, a companion work to her France, was published in 1821 with appendices by her husband; Lord Byron bears testimony to the justness of its pictures of life. The results of Italian historical studies were given in her Life and Times of Salvator Rosa (1823). Then she turned again to Irish manners and politics with a matter-of-fact book on Absenteeism (1825), and a romantic novel, The O&#39;Briens and the O&#39;Flaherties (1827). From William Lamb, 2nd Viscount Melbourne Lady Morgan obtained a pension of 300. During the later years of her long life she published The Book of the Boudoir (1829), Dramatic Scenes from Real Life (1833), The Princess (1835), Woman and her Master (1840), The Book without a Name (1841), and Passages from my Autobiography (1859). Copperplate ink inscriptions have been left to the half-titles of each volume from the previous owner and have been dated 1827. In French. Condition: Uniformally rebound in cloth. Externally, in excellent condition with just minor shelfwear only. Internally, firmly bound and bright with light foxing throughout.

Top edge gilt. Plum endleaves. Spine sunned to warm brown. Bookplate of Graham M. Adee. A fine copy."The half-title is frequently missing" (Tooley).The story of the life of a somewhat debauched squire from birth until his bridle at marriage. "'John Careless, Esq.,' is only known as the author of a rare colour-book, The Old English Squire, published by M'Lean in 1821, with twenty [i.e. 24] coloured plates 'by one of the family' in the style of Rowlandson. The literary matter differs from that of Combe and Mitford in being strongly influenced by the style of Walter Scott, wherever the galloping metre of Retaliation and Haunch of Venison is not used. Especially curious is the account of the collection of Old Masters, from which the Old English Squire bought his St Anthony preaching to the Fishes." (Prideaux)."It is not certainly known who 'John Careless' was. He is sometimes said to have been 'Stephen Oliver' (a pseudonym of W.A. Chatto); but Chatto's poem of the same title was published in 1838 by 'Phiz.' His 'Old English Squire', with twenty-four aquatints colored by hand ('by one of the family'), is in fact something of a mystery, and, for the collector, rather an expensive one: it may cost £20, or even more. The reason of such a price (though there is the justification of rarity) lies in two features it possesses. One is the plates, which are attributed to Thomas Rowlandson, of which all that can be said is that they are utterly unworthy of the artist who in the same year completed the illustrations to 'Dr. Syntax's' three 'Tours.' However, these puzzles of authorship and illustration make the book interesting. And trashy though the verse is, it has yet one other great interest - that of life" (Sawyer and Darton, English Books 1475-1900).The stunning library of color-plate and sporting books collected by Capt.
