      1821. A New Edition. In Two Volumes. London: John Murray, 1821. 12 pp preliminary ads (for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown) dated October 1820. Original blue-grey boards with paper spines and printed spine labels. Very early British edition of one of the landmarks of American literature, introducing the immortal characters of both Rip Van Winkle and Ichabod Crane. Irving wrote these tales in England, after the failure of his family's business in Liverpool; Walter Scott (to whom this is dedicated) encouraged him to start writing again, and this SKETCH BOOK was the immediate result. In this work Irving was trying his hand at adapting tales of European folklore into an American setting and sensibility; of the 32 "sketches," by far the best-known are "Rip Van Winkle" and "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow." ~Though written in Great Britain, the sketches were first published in America -- in seven wrappered volumes, beginning in June 1819 and ending in September 1820 -- simultaneously in New York, Boston, Philadelphia and Baltimore. In England, a first volume was published in February 1820 (now extremely scarce) by one John Miller, who went out of business before producing a second volume. John Murray then took over, by July issuing Miller's Vol I unsold sheets (with a title page politely labeled "Second Edition") plus a new second volume, both dated 1820 -- followed by additional printings (including this one) dated the following year. The English editions have a different Introduction than the American ones, they contain many minor differences in text, and they include three pieces not in the American -- "Traits on Indian Character," "Philip of Pokanoket" and "L'Envoy."~This copy is in very good condition, which is quite amazing for volumes still in their original boards-and-label bindings. Vol I has endpapers at each end, plus a preliminary ad catalogue of Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, dated October 1820; Vol II does not have a free endpaper at either end. There is wear at the spine ends of both volumes and minor wear along the joints of one volume, but one seldom sees THE SKETCH BOOK in original boards in any condition. Langfeld & Kleinfield p. 23; Blanck 10232 (Blanck speculates "Boards?" for this "New Edition," indicating he had never seen such a copy), plus see 10107 & 10108; one of Merle Johnson's "High Spots" of American literature.

        Principle and Doctrine of Assurances, Annuities on Lives, and Contingent Reversions, Stated and Explained

      London - Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1821 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Originally published in 1779 and was long out of print when this edition was published, having been prepared over several years in Morgan's leisure time, with additional matter. First edition thus. William Morgan, FRS (26 May 1750 - 4 May 1833) was a Welsh physician, physicist and statistician, who is considered the father of modern actuarial science. In 1774 Morgan was appointed Assistant Actuary of The Equitable Life Assurance Society. The next year, after the death of John Pocock, he was elected Actuary. By the time he retired in 1830, 56 years later at the age of 80, he laid the foundations of the actuarial profession - in fact the term 'actuarial' became attached to the profession because of his title. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, generally smart but with bumping and wear to extremities and with rubbing and marks to boards. Front hinge slightly strained. Internally, bright but with the odd spot and slight scattered spotting to first and last few pages. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Collection of nine leaves from a sketchbook made during the Peninsular Wars

      1821.. Collection of nine ms. leaves, most with watercolour vignettes, mounted on a board. The nine leaves which comprise this work have been cut from an early sketchbook, trimmed and pasted onto a backing sheet. Thus removed from their original context they form a mysterious and compelling set of words and images that tantalises and which provokes speculation.The author of these illustrations is one Dr Andrew Lucien Gordon and for the most part he contents himself with animating, in ink and wash, the imagery of various found snippets of poetry and prose, including a quote from Robert Burns which he copied from a colleague's teacup. These pictures are particularly fine and remarkably detailed for their size, delicately describing various landscapes and atmospheric conditions.It is known that Dr Gibson served with Wellington's troops in the Peninsular Wars against France, in Spain in the early 1800s, before resigning his commission and settling in Australia. The uniform details of several characters within these sketches shows a keen awareness of the dress standards and equipage of the time. The soldier depicted in the third leaf on the top right-hand side is wearing a uniform typical of Wellington's troops during the Peninsular Wars - this uniform was adopted in 1808 and continued largely unchanged until about 1825. It is consistent with the uniform worn by local soldiers - the New South Wales Regiment - who were relocated to North America to defend British holdings after the arrival of Governor Macquarie, who brought his own troops with him to Australia upon taking up office. Suggestively, a pencil sketch in the lower middle part of the selection, shows the entrance to the "Gulf of Annapolis Royal, Novia Scotia", the site of a British stronghold at the time. The blue facings on the uniform indicate that the trooper is part of a defensive force attached to a fort or some other defensive structure, not a standing army brigade (in which case the facings would be gold).The picture of the "Two Belgiac (sic.) Officers" is of interest - the uniform is consistent with one adopted by the Belgian forces around 1815. Their presence is probably indicated by the recent victory at Waterloo and the handing over of Belgium to the newly-formed Netherland states; after years of perceived inequalities in their rule by the Dutch, especially in matters of religion and language, the Belgians rebelled and claimed independence which was recognised in 1830. The detailed face of the Officer without a hat would seem to indicate that he was known to the artist.Upon his arrival in Australia with his friend Thomas Valentine Bloomfield, Andrew Gibson settled in Goulburn NSW, at the homestead "Tirranna", now an historic house. Thomas Bloomfield married Christianna, the daughter of Captain Richard Brooks, who sailed out to Australia with the Second Fleet and whose portrait, by Augustus Earle, is in the Victorian National Gallery.

        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]

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.

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

      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 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. In this and later works he established the limit concept as the cornerstone for the calculus." (Calinger, Classics of Mathematics 102). <br/><br/> Rare: Just two copies auctioned the past 50 years (Sotheby's 1963 & 1978); "By the end of the nineteenth century, the editors of Cauchy's collected works had difficulty in tracing a copy of Cauchy 1821 in France!"

      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. Pages are mainly bright, although with some scattered light foxing to the first and last few pages, and spotted in places throughout the text. Overall: VERY GOOD..

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.
