        The Converted African, Written by William Luboys, and African, who was converted by the Methodist Missionaries at Gibraltar [with] A Christian Hymn, Composed by an Indian near unto Death

      Cheapside, Taunton: W. Bragg, Printer. ND, c. 1822. Broadside, 14.75" x 9.5", printed in two columns. Some light soiling, old creases, several discreet tissue repairs, very good. An interesting and scarce broadside purporting to demonstrate the success of Methodist missionary efforts among heathen peoples. In "The Converted African," the narrator tells of being persecuted for his religious beliefs and then saved from harm by divine intervention while working on a ship in his Majesty's service. The only record of Luboys we have found is an 1825 newspaper article, which reports that "a black man, who calls himself William Luboys, a native of Africa, has been preaching several times in the town and neighborhood of Aylesbury. He has attracted numerous hearers." The writer is particularly appreciative of Luboys' observation that "before his arrival in England, he had no idea that the people of this country, who sent missionaries to foreign countries to convert the natives to Christianity, were themselves addicted to swearing, drunkenness, and all kinds of vice." While Luboys may been a real Methodist convert-and may have written the text attributed to him-the author of the second text on the broadside, "an Indian near unto Death," is surely a fabrication. The text of this hymn, beginning "My soul's full of glory, which fires my tongue," has been convincingly attributed to American Methodist circuit rider John A. Garande (1770-1807). Although in earlier appearances it was titled "The Dying Pilgrim," attributing Indian authorship to the work would have been useful as missionary societies sought funds to continue their work in remote regions of the world. We locate only two other copies of this broadside, at the British Library and the Bodleian (the latter having the same text but a different imprint).

        "Taynton Inclosure Award" - Land Granted to Wales Politician George Talbot Rice, 3rd Baron Dynevor

      Taynton in Oxfordshire, 16 May 1822. Manuscript Enclosure Award on vellum, being a type of land grant approved by the Parliament of England, which doled out parcels of land previously termed "common" and collectively controlled and farmed by everyday citizens, to subsequently be privately owned by wealthy British peers and the like, complete with the original accompanying survey map, hand-drawn on vellum, delineating the new acquisitions of British politician, former MP of Carmarthenshire in Wales, George Talbot Rice, 3rd Baron Dynevor, among others. Medium Folio. 25 pages including the commissioner's manuscript oath, written to rectos only, each page of the document bordered in red ink, docketed by a parliamentary court clerk, and labelling it 'Roll 415.' Accompanied the original large manuscript folding map of the Parish of Taynton, tipped in at the front of the volume, with roadways and rivers hand coloured, measuring approximately 53 x 71 cm. Plan was drawn by Edward Webb of Stow on the Wold, land surveyor, and features a scale bar and decorative compass rose. Full calf binding consisting of the original boards tooled, titled in gilt to front, with two working brass clasps, secured with a recent professionally crafted leather spine tastefully tooled in gilt, with gilt with morocco label. Volume measuring approximately 45 x 33 x 2 cm. A fascinating and detailed document. Statistically, Oxfordshire was one of the regions most affected by the enclosure movement. Between 1758 and 1882, 190 parliamentary enclosure acts were passed for the county, affecting 51% of its acreage, while 1/3 of parishes changed through no-parliamentary enclosure. The "enclosure" movement was the process by which the common fields, vast shared pastures and scattered tracts of arable land of rural medieval England, were consolidated and distributed to the wealthy and elite - resulting in the demise of the small farmer and the increase of national agricultural trade. The process began in the 12th century. From the mid-16th century enclosures were commonly enrolled by decree of one of the equity courts, especially Chancery and Exchequer. From 1750 the practice became widespread, and from 1773 was by the "Inclosure Acts" (or "Enclosure Acts" in modern spelling). Private Acts of Parliament were often instigated by a land claim, enacted only after failure to settle land disputes amicably between the landowner and tenants. These earlier agreements can be found amongst the equity Court of Chancery records. The actual legal process was called Inclosure. These Acts of Parliament listed the landowner who had brought the case to parliament, as well as the name of the appointed enclosure commissioner. The Inclosure Act 1773, passed during the reign of George III, required the procedure to start with a petition delivered to Parliament signed by the landowner, tithe holders and a majority of people affected. The petition then went through the stages of a bill with a committee meeting to hear any objections. The petition would then go through to Royal Assent after passing through both Houses of Parliament. Commissioners would then visit the area and distribute the land accordingly. In 1801, the Inclosure (Consolidation) Act was passed to tidy up the previous act. The series of Acts of Parliament continued to enclosed open fields and common land in England and Wales, creating legal property rights and private ownership over land that was previously considered common. These normally specified where awards were to be deposited or enrolled, either by one of the courts of record or with the local clerk of the peace. The legal documents which recorded the new ownership and delineated the distribution of land - as seen here - were called "Inclosure Awards." A detailed survey was conducted by a commissioner, who charted the land and its boundaries sometimes including the names of the pre-enclosure fields, footpaths, roads and other features and further provided a textual description, forming a lengthy and detailed document. Following the survey, the inclosure award listed the wealthy landowners, and, if they were to be so fortunate, any farmers and cottagers who were allotted land in lieu of their former common rights. The awards did not, however, list landless people, so many parishioners are not recorded. Even if a person was known to have held land, it is not certain that his property will appear on an enclosure map as much land was enclosed by private agreement with no record made of the event. The year of enclosure for Taynton, Oxfordshire, was 1821. The Oxfordshire History Centre holds enclosure documents such as this one, belonging to the National Archives. In 1845, some twenty-three years after the present Inclosure Award was enrolled in Parliament, the system was changed. A General Inclosure Act (8 & 9 Vict. c.118) allowed for the appointment of permanent Inclosure Commissioners who were authorized to issue Enclosure Awards without submitting them to Parliament for approval. Inclosure was a key element of Great Britain's Agricultural Revolution, and effectively broke up the smallholding system of farming the land, and many small farmers became landless labourers. There was, however, a national benefit, in that agricultural productivity increased, and a national market was established. With no internal tariffs, customs barriers and feudal tolls, Britain became "the largest coherent market in Europe." In the case of Taynton Parish, John Davis, the Commissioner of Bloxham, County of Oxford, executed the allotments and enrolled the enclosure award. He was sworn in on 15 May 1821 and completed the work officially on 4 April 1822, final award being "inrolled in His Majesty's Court of King's Bench at Westminster" on 16 May 1822. The primary recipient of the tracts of land in the Parish of Taynton was British peer and politician George Rice Talbot, Lord Dynevor (1765-1852). George Talbot Rice, 3rd Baron Dynevor, was the Tory Member of Parliament for Carmarthenshire from 1790 to 1793, succeeding his father who served in that seat from 1754-1789. He inherited the baronetcy and title in 1793 on the death of his mother who had adopted, by royal licence, the name of de Cardonnel. Thus, he assumed the additional surname of de Cardonnell by royal licence in 1793, but chose to resume the name Rice by royal licence in 1817. Through inheritance, he also owned the parishes of Great Barrington and Little Barrington in the County of Gloucester. His remains are kept within the chancel inside of St. Mary's Churchyard in Great Barrington, Gloucestershire, where his widow and children have also placed a monument in his honour. [He was the son of Welsh politician and courtier George Rice (1724-1779) of Newton House, Llandeilo, who was connected maternally to Prime Minister Lord Newcastle, and whose legacy is secured by his role as a ministerial spokesman on America, for he had become a colonial expert when at the Board of Trade and, as the colonial crisis that finally led to the declaration of independence in 1776 deepened, Rice emerged as a hardliner. The Rices were historically a leading Whig family in Carmarthenshire, though their 19th century descendants would sit in parliament as Tories.] Other recipients of land are named, including yeomen (lesser freeholders), a member of the clergy, and one man of gentry status, these receiving a sizeable parcel of land, and additional 'small allotments': John Wheeler, yeoman. [The Plymouth and West Devon Record Office holds for the National Archives, a mortgage document dated 1823 for "Lands at Taynton" which names "John Wheeler of Gloucestershire, yeoman."] Reverend Thomas Lewis, vicar [perhaps a descendant of controversialist Thomas Lewis (1689- ca 1737), English cleric, noted as a vitriolic High Church writer of the Bangorian controversy.] John Large Cozins/Cozens, yeoman. [A tomb for the Cozins family lays at the Church of St John Chest, approximately 24 metres north of the chancel - which coincides with the present map. The tomb is either in the easternmost corner of his small allotment No. 5 or the larger adjacent allotment No. 3 shown here. He is found in the Oxfordshire Archdeacon's Marriage Bond Index, revealing that he was from Taynton and married in 1787 to Mary Woodman of Taynton. John Cozins is also listed in connection with the Broughton rectory at nearby Burford, being elected as a new member of the Royal Agricultural Society of England in the year 1841.] John Lenthall, Esq., possibly a descendant of landowner Sir John Lenthall of Burford who leased some of his land to a papermaker. [Sir John Lenthall, Esq. of Burford, owned in 1706 the Manor of Upton Signet. In 1709 he acquired land in Burford, among other places, and leased it to papermaker Peter Rich of Upton, including a moiety of the fulling mills and paper mills. Rich was paid a weekly wage.] One other man benefited from this formal enclosure, though he was granted only one tract of land (no small allotments), that being William Hall, yeoman, and presumably also the village brewer. [William Hall would have been 22 years old when he received this parcel of land and immense opportunity. The 1851 census of Yarnton lists William Hall as a brewer aged 30. The Oxford Diocesan Marriage Bonds and Affidavits lists the marriage license date of William Hall of Trowbridge, Wiltshire (born in Kneeton, Ntt), to Ann Stange of Yarnton, in 1849. Trowbridge is some sixty miles from Taynton. He is also connected to the Kidlington Manor, situated some twenty miles from Taynton. The Oxford brewer William Hall became a tenant of Kidlington in 1811 and for the next two years he made great improvements to it. His tenancy agreement was made on the condition that he would erect stables and barns, and to make the land arable. Kidlington was subject to 'enclosure' in 1821. This may also be the same William Hall who in 1795 had purchased the Swan's Nest Brewery (later the Swan Brewery) from Sir John Treacher, one time alderman and mayor of Oxford.] [Historically, a yeoman was a personof a class of lesser freeholders, below the gentry, who cultivated their own land, early admitted in England to political rights.] The map is in itself quite fascinating and reveals a lot about Taynton's historic restructuring. Made in manuscript with hand coloured highlights to indicate roadways, rivers, and principle buildings in the village, bold boundaries cleary set out the new divisions of land. Complete with the names of notable land owners, most of the parish was divided into sizeable allotments with the recipient's name penned straight across it. Some separate "Small Allotments" are also delineated; a list below the chart names the recipients, which all happen to be the same persons to whom the larger tracts of land were awarded. Each allotment is annotated with the surveyor's A.R.P. co-ordinates (Antenna Reference Point ARP). Large lettering crossing several allotments illustrate the expansive new holdings of Lord Dynevor, while a manuscript list of "small allotments" adds additional land to his estate. Within his area, are two sections marked "Rectorial Tythes" and one drawing of natural water springs. Any smallholding farmer who had previously worked the land has been omitted, and as such, most likely continued to do so for someone else's profit instead of his own, or was forced to relocate. A small space is generically labeled 'Inclosures' and may represent the meagre area retained for these folks. A small section allotted to Reverend Thomas Lewis reserves his "Manorial Rights" - an ancient tradition of privileges enjoyed by lords of the manor, for example, the right to hunt, shoot or fish. The 14th century parish church of Saint John the Evangelist is drawn and identified. Other buildings in the village are drawn as well, sparse as they are, making for an interesting perspective of the modest population at the time. A very detailed and singular legal document which would forever change the physical landscape of Taynton Parish, as well as the hereditary land rights of several parties, following are some excerpts from the manuscript Inclosure Award recorded in Westminster parliament: "To all whom these presents shall come, John Davis of Bloxham... sends greeting... it is hereby enacted that the said John Davis... is thereby appointed the Commissioner for dividing and inclosing the open and common fields meadows pastures downs and wasteland within the said parish of Taynton..." "... in the said Taynton Act (amongst other things) ) further enacted that it should be lawful for the said Commissioner to set out allot and award any lands tenements or acreditaments whatsoever within the said Parish of Taynton... provided that such exchange should be ascertained specified and declared in the Award... and be made with the consent of the owner or owners proprietors of the lands... whether such owner or owners proprietors or proprietors should be a body or bodies politic corporate or collegiate or a tenant or tenants in fee... lessor... guardians trustees feoffees for charitable or other uses... " "... notice to be given at the time and place of the first attendance for the execution of the said recited acts... notice affixed upon the principal outer door of the said Parish Church of Tayton... a similar notice inserted in the newspaper called Jackson's Oxford Journal..." "Unto and for the said John Large Cozins Yeoman in compensation for his late open fields lands grounds and right of common thereto belonging called Ansell's Freehold. One piece or parcel of lands or grounds situate in the East field containing thirty-two acres three roods... bounded by the Taynton and Milton Road... the private road... a garden... One piece or parcel being two cottages gardens and old inclosures in the village of Taynton... One piece or parcel being the homestead and those called Lamberts... part of the old inclosure called Town Close... part of an inclosure called the paddock..." "Now therefore know ye... that the said Commissioner hath assigned set out and allotted and by these presents doth award unto and for George Talbot Lord Dynevor as Lord of the Manor of Taynton aforesaid in satisfaction and compensation for his late manorial right to the soil of the commons and waste lands directed to be inclosed." "... said Commissioner... thereby authorized and required to set out and allot unto and for the Impropriator of the impropriate Rectory of Taynton aforesaid and unto and for the vicar of the said vicarage... award the said allotments or parcels of land so to be set out as a compensation for such tithes... their respective shares and proportions... in respect of the messuages homesteads gardens orchards or inclosures..." "... doth award and confirm unto and for the Right Honorable George Talbot Rice Lord Dynevor as Impropriator of the Impropriate Rectory of Taynton aforesaid..." "Unto and for the said Right Honorable George Talbot Rice Lord Dynevor in compensation for his open fields lands grounds and rights common thereto belonging (freehold) the fifteen pieces or parcels of lands..." End excerpts. Oxfordshire is prime territory for the study of the 'agricultural revolution', one of the most important phases of English and local history, generally identified as the period from 1750-1850. Agriculture was the mainstay of Oxfordshire life. In 1750 most farming still mixed, dominated by arable and most often organised in open fields, communally regulated and associated with complex common rights of pasture and other uses. The transformation which evolved by 'parliamentary enclosure' resulted in the extinction of the small farmers, and also of customary social structures, but instead created increase in production and wholesale income through new crop types, development of livestock breeds, and simply by ploughing more land. Now there were separate, consolidated farms, held in severalty (individual legal ownership); previous shared common rights were extinguished. The new landscape was composed of smaller, regularly-shaped fields, often enclosed by hedges or walls, and served by designated networks of roads and tracks. The resulting rural society was essentially tripartite, with relatively few landowners, tenant farmers operating under modernised leases, and a mass of rural workers (the majority now waged, day labourers rather than small, family farmers, cottagers or commoners). Statistically, Oxfordshire was one of the counties most affected by enclosure. Between 1758 and 1882, 190 parliamentary enclosure acts were passed for the county, affecting 51% of its acreage, and 1/3 of parishes changed through no-parliamentary enclosure. Spurred by great growth in demand from national trade, and thus higher prices, these market advantages further protected by prolonged wartime conditions from the 1790s to 1815, the agricultural revolution was in full swing. With increasing demand for production came increased opportunity. In the first half of the 19th century, Oxfordshire's population rose faster ever before. The decade of peak growth was 1811-21, during which Oxfordshire's population grew by 16.2%. The relative quiet of the 18th century was effectively replaced by revival, reform, restoration and variety. There was, however, some resistance to enclosure, most famously the Otmoor Riots and the Swing Riots, both in the 1830s. Parishes struggled to cope with the repercussions of agricultural and population changes. In many places there came to be more people than jobs. Widows, orphans, and the chronically sick had to be cared for too. Parishes in Oxfordshire and Berkshire were amongst those who then had to develop elaborate local initiatives to try and respond. Taynton is a village and civil parish about 1 1/2 miles (2.4 km) northwest of Burford in West Oxfordshire. The village is on Coombe Brook, a tributary of the River Windrush. The parish is bounded in the south by the River Windrush [drawn here], in the north partly by Coombe Brook and its tributary Hazelden Brook, in the west by the county boundary with Gloucestershire [Here stating "Great Barrington Parish"] and in the east by field boundaries [Here stating "Fulbrook Parish"]. At the time of the present document, Taynton was barely a village. A school would be built fifty years later in 1877 and a post office would be opened by 1895. The village was, however, long since renowned for its stone quarries, and Taynton limestone was used in many important buildings throughout the Thames Valley. The stone was quarried in in the locality since at least the 14th century, and was used for many of the older colleges of Oxford University, Windsor Castle, the original pre-1666 St Paul's Cathedral, and Blenheim Palace. Kelly's Directory published in 1891 describes Taynton as follows: "Taynton is a parish situated at the western extremity of the county, on the Gloucestershire border, 1¾ miles north-west-by-west from Burford, 9 north-west from Witney and 6½ north-west from Alvescot station on the East Gloucestershire railway, in the Mid division of the county, hundred of Chadlington, petty sessional division of Bampton West, union and county court district of Witney, rural deanery of Witney and archdeaconry and diocese of Oxford. The river Windrush flows through the parish. The ancient church of St. John, an edifice of stone chiefly in the Decorated style, consists of chancel, clerestoried nave, aisles, north porch and a tall and narrow western tower containing 4 bells and a clock, and on the north side a vestry: the chancel, added in 1843, is modern Early English... The charities for distribution in clothing, bread and money amount to £19 yearly: there is also a yearly sum of £5 from the Fifield estate for educational purposes. In this parish are quarries of very excellent stone of the Great Oolite series of which many buildings in Oxford have been constructed. Edward Rhys Wingfield esq. D.L., J.P. of Barrington Park, who is lord of the manor, the Crown and J.J. Bickerton esq. are the principal landowners..." "Hall's Brewery Oxford": [From 'the Oxfordshire Brewer', James Bond and John Rhodes, 1985, Oxfordshire Museum Services]: "In 1795, William Hall purchased the Swan's Nest Brewery (later the Swan Brewery) from Sir John Treacher, one time alderman and mayor of Oxford. The brewery, situated on a narrow strip of land between two channels of the Thames in St Thomas's parish, was in existence as early as 1718. By 1835 William Hall was in partnership with the Tawney family who had been involved in the brewing industry in Oxford since the mid eighteenth century; from 1837 Henry Hall headed the firm... In 1896, the brewery was converted into a company under the name of Hall's Oxford brewery Ltd." The company was taken over by Allsop in 1926, subsequently acquired by Ind Coope (1935), and hence to Allied Breweries.

        Four Panoramic Views of Edinburgh and the Surrounding Country, from the Top of Blackford Hill.

      Published by Francis Cameron, Edinburgh 1822 - Oblong folio (470x330mm), single letterpress-printed leaf (text set in two columns in landscape orientation) and four double-page engraved panoramas printed by C. Hullmandel after drawings by Stewart. Original printed wrappers, title and imprint on front wrapper, these repeated on inside of rear wrapper (in portrait orientation). Some foxing to panoramas. Wrappers a little marked and spotted, spine sometime recovered in darker paper and slightly worn at ends. The first publication of Mary Stewart (1773-1849), an enthusiastic and early Scottish artist of panoramic views. In 1823 Stewart became Lady Elton, the second wife of Sir Abraham Elton, 5th Baronet (1755-1842), of Clevedon Court in Somerset. At Clevedon she documented the estate in drawings and lithographs, and pursued philanthropic and educational aims - a primary school in Clevedon is named after her. Also in 1823 Stewart (by then already Lady Elton) published a similar work to this one, depicting views from the top of Calton Hill. This was a more elaborate publication, published jointly by Ackermann with an engraved dedication to George IV, and the plates were available coloured, though as the colouring was attacked in the contemporary press for inaccuracy, this may have been a misstep. The Calton Hill panoramas combined her interests in landscape and philanthropy, being published 'for the benefit of the Deaf & Dumb Institution of Edinburgh', and a number of copies survive both in original state and as loose collections of plates. This earlier set of panoramas is much scarcer - COPAC locates one copy, in the NLS. Worldcat adds copies in the Huntington, Smith College, and NYPL only. There were evidently two issues, as the single letterpress leaf (containing a quotation from Canto IV of Myrmidon) exists in two entirely different settings, though nothing appears to have been changed on the plates themselves.

        Gemälde von St. Petersburg.

      Reutlingen: Verlag des literarischen Comtoirs,, 1822. Von seiner Entstehung bis auf die gegenwärtige Zeit nach den neuesten und besten Quellen bearbeitet. Octavo. Original pale blue-grey boards, untrimmed, as issued. Fine engraved folding map, folding letterpress table Spine and edges of front cover lightly sunned, a few small brown marks to back cover, old wax stain in margin at p. 120. An excellent copy. First edition, remarkably uncommon: among British and Irish institutional libraries Copac locates one copy (British Library); OCLC adds only three more worldwide, all in Germany (Johannes-Gutenburg-Universitat Mainz, Sachsische Landesbibliothek, Wurttembergische Landesbibliothek). An edition was also published at Leipzig in the same year, published by Hartmann, which, institutionally, is a little more common. This is a comprehensive overview of the city of Peter the Great, "from its origin to the present time, according to the latest and best sources". The primary source was St. Petersburg am Ende seines ersten Jahrhunderts (St. Petersburg: F. Dienemann, 1805) by the Estonian diplomat Heinrich Christoph von Reimers (1768-1812), who was a Russian state counsellor (see Regina Stürickow, Reisen nach St. Petersburg: Die Darstellung St. Petersburg in Reisenbeschreibungen 1815-1861). The map is particularly attractive and the folding letterpress table is a guide to the individual city districts and their sights. A lovely, unsophisticated copy.

      Weymouth: printed by J. Commins 77 St. Mary-Street for Thomas Bourne 1822 - 8vo., (2) + ii + (9)-100pp., recently well bound in cloth, spine gilt lettered. A very good copy. The full report of a libel trial, the defendant, a Mr. Thomas Bourn[e], being charged with publishing defamatory material in his own local newspaper thus libelling a Rev. Dr. John Dupre D.D. by referring to him as the 'Spanish Monk'. Bourne was actually acquitted. There is an interesting reference to Thomas Bourne in a contemporary issue of The Republican> newspaper (edited by Richard Carlile). It comes in the transcript of a letter from 'Q' to Richard Carlile in Dorchester Gaol, and is dated 'Bridport, Jan. 16, 1825'. 'About 5 years ago, a paper was first printed at Weymouth, under the title of the Weymouth, Poole, and Dorchester Gazette, Mr. Thomas Bourn, the proprietor. It was then in the independent interest; but Mr. Bourn's finances, not holding out, he decided to make over the concern to, his father-in-law, Capt. Bennett. After a few months of civil war, the whole of the materials were disposed of, to Messrs. G. Clark, jun. W.M. Penny, and D.C. Higgs of Dorchester, who immediately changed its principles. .'. And Richard Carlile added the comment that he hopes 'my Dorset friends will soon get over this nonsense about independent> and ministerial interest,> and learn to compare by and to reason upon, correct political principles.' Richard Carlile was incarcerated in Dorchester gaol from November 1819 to November 1825. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Mémoire sur les intégrales définies, où l'on fixe le nombre et la nature des constantes arbitraires et des fonctions arbitraires que peuvent comporter les valeurs de ces mêmes intégrales quand elles deviennent indéterminées. Offprint from Bulletin des Sciences par la Société Philomathique de Paris, Année 1822.

      Paris: Plassan, 1822. First edition, extremely rare separately-paginated offprint (journal pagination 161-174), inscribed by Cauchy (1789-1857) to his senior colleague Sylvestre François Lacroix (1765-1843). In this paper Cauchy published for the first time many of the most important results of his great work Mémoire sur les intégrales définies, submitted to the Académie des Sciences on 22 August 1814 but not published until 1827, which laid the foundations of complex function theory (the delay was possibly due to its length of almost 200 pages). "This remarkable paper [i.e., the 1814 paper] is a major seed for 19th century mathematics, for in it Cauchy inaugurated the theory of complex variable functions and their integration" (Grattan-Guinness, p. 656). "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). In this 1822 work we find, in particular, the first published statement of 'Cauchy's integral formula' (p. 10) and the 'residue theorem' (on p. 9) - these are the central results of complex function theory. On p. 11 of the present paper, Cauchy also argues for the first time that the definite integral should be defined in terms of 'partial sums,' an approach he developed in detail in his Résumé des Leçons (1823). This was an essential step towards the theory of complex integration he presented in Mémoire sur les intégrales définies, prises entre des limites imaginaires (1825), and was the basis for all rigorous approaches to integration until the twentieth century. We can find no record of this offprint in auction records, nor of any offprint inscribed by Cauchy. Not on OCLC. Provenance: Sylvestre François Lacroix, inscription on title page "à M. Lacroix de la part de l'auteur". Although Lacroix's mathematical work contained little that was absolutely new and original, he was a great teacher and writer of textbooks. His monumental three-volume treatise on calculus, Traité du Calcul Différentiel et du Calcul Intégrale, incorporated the various advances made since the middle of the eighteenth century, and synthesised the works of Euler, Lagrange, Laplace, Monge, Legendre, Poisson, Gauss, and Cauchy, whose writings are followed up to the year 1819. As a student at the École Polytechnique (from which he graduated in 1807), Cauchy studied analysis under Lacroix. Several years later, Lacroix was one of the examiners of Cauchy's 1814 memoir (the other was Legendre), and its publication was recommended by their report to the Institut de France. One of Cauchy's motivations in writing the 1814 paper was to justify the use of complex variables to evaluate real definite integrals. "The practice had begun with Euler and continued with Laplace, Poisson, and Legendre, in his Exercises de Calcul Intégrale (1811). In the Mémoire on this topic that he presented in 1814 Cauchy commented that many of the integrals had been evaluated for the first time "by means of a kind of induction" based on "the passage from the real to the imaginary", and that no less a figure than Laplace had remarked that the method "however carefully employed, leaves something to be desired in the proofs of the results". Cauchy accordingly set himself the task of finding a "direct and rigorous analysis" of this dubious passage" (Gray, pp. 59-60). Cauchy's defence of this technique led, among other things, to the Cauchy-Riemann equations. However, his chief interest in the 1814 paper was in double integrals. "Mathematicians of the period, with their somewhat formal attitude to the processes of the calculus, not only tended to regard a double integral as a nested pair of single integrals but to be indifferent to the order of integration. This formal approach precluded interpreting double integrals in terms of line integrals along the boundaries of a rectangle in the plane of complex numbers; they were strictly about integrals on a rectangle in the real plane. However, it was known that in some cases this attitude was too naive and led to conflicting results, and it was this problem that Cauchy addressed in the second part of the Mémoire ... "Cauchy showed varying the order of integration of a double integral can yield two distinct definite values when the function becomes infinite or indeterminate for certain values of the variables within the domain of integration. To investigate the matter further, he introduced what he called singular integrals ('intégrales singulières'), which he defined as limits as the end points of the integral tend to the same fixed value "without the integrals being zero." Singular integrals are a profound idea. They were to crop up repeatedly in real analysis and, in an intriguing different way, in Cauchy's later work on complex integrals" (Gray, p. 61). In the 1822 paper, Cauchy began by recalling his 1814 definition of a singular integral and then drew upon results from the same paper on the evaluation of functions of a complex variable over real-valued limits. This led to the formula at the top of p. 169, the first published version of the residue theorem. "This pretty form of a residue theorem was put through some of its paces in the rest of Cauchy's paper [i.e., the offered paper]. For example, he found an integral formula for [the nth derivative], and two pages later he obtained a couple of evaluations of which Poisson had given special cases ... in a postscript he reproved some of those results using Parseval's theorem" (Grattan-Guinness, p. 740). "At this point [p. 171, second paragraph] Cauchy made an interesting remark that helps to explain his motivation for introducing the concept of definite integral the way he did in his Résumé. He said that he considered each definite integral, taken between real limits, 'as nothing other than the sum of the values of the differentials corresponding to the various values of the variable between the given limits. This way of thinking of a definite integral, it seems to me, must be preferred because it leads equally to all cases, even those in which one docs not know at all how to pass generally from the function placed under the integral sign to the primitive function [i.e., the function whose derivative is the function to be integrated].' Thus, his research work on definite integrals, including in particular his theory of singular integrals, apparently persuaded him to abandon the prevailing view at the time that the definite integral should be defined via the primitive function and, instead, to define the definite integral as limits of partial sums. In addition, Cauchy stated, this view 'has the advantage' of always providing real values for integrals of real functions, as well as allowing one to separate 'easily' any imaginary equation into its real and imaginary parts. This will not be the case when considering a definite integral as the difference of the values taken by a (discontinuous) primitive function at the limits of integration, or when allowing the variable to take imaginary values" (Gray & Bottazzini, pp. 121-122). "... although there is hardly any doubt that by the early 1820s Cauchy was in possession of a wealth of results that, in an incoherent way, prefigured his later achievements, a satisfactory theory of complex functions was still lacking. An essential step towards such a theory was his decision to get rid of the 'old' definition of definite integrals based on primitive functions, and instead to define them as limits of partial sums" (ibid., p. 128). "Cauchy showed understandable signs of impatience in [the present] paper at the non-appearance of his 1814 paper on complex integration. Not only did he announce - falsely, it turned out - that it 'will soon be published' [p. 1, footnote], but he also mentioned other texts which in the end were never published and seem now to be lost ... [The present paper] appeared from the Société Philomatique in their November Bulletin. At 14 pages it was rather long for them ... so they accepted his offer to pay for the printing of eight of the pages" (Grattan-Guinness, p. 738).

        Manuscript Letter of Virginia Slave Owner Barred from Taking Slaves to Ohio.

      12 April 1822., Culpepper County Virginia: - Folded letter sheet, 1pp., signed. Some creasing and edgewear, normal aging and toning; otherwise very good. William Ramlin Withers (c1756-1834) was a Revolutionary War soldier that enlisted as a sergeant, but would be promoted to Lieutenant. In 1782 he returned to Virginia with a leg injury that seems to have left him lame for the rest of his life. It is unclear how he was injured. The letter is to a Mr. Sawyer of Frankford, Kentucky. The address can be seen faintly on the overleaf. Withers who was in his sixties when he wrote this letter was trying to sell some land he was given in Ohio. However, because he was "old a very infirm man" he needed his slaves to take care of him. Since slaves were not allowed in Ohio, Withers was forced to sell the land, which he offered to Sawyer. He offered the land for one dollar per acre, he also indicated "I will take part payment, four or five young horses at a fair price. "Withers had a somewhat colorful life, and after serving in the military he was also a sheriff and had four children. Somehow he ended up in debt, and even had his ex-wife suing him for unpaid alimony. As far as his slaves were concerned it appears he gave two to his son, and the others were sold to pay off his debts. Information on Withers can be found on various Revolutionary war websites, and from some local records supplied by a previous owner.

        Dissertatio Inauguralis Physiologica sistens Commentarii de Phoronomia Animalium. Decano et Promotore A.Fr.Jos. Carolo Mayer.

      Bonnae, Typis C.F. Thormanni, Decembris 1822, Kl.4, 44 pp., 1 Bl., 1 gefalt. lith. Tafel., OBrosch leicht wasserfleckig! Extrem Selten!Johannes Müller (1801-1858) zu Coblenz als Sohn eines Schuhmachers geboren, war schon als Knabe ungewöhnlich veranlagt und von dem derzeitigen Leiter der Schulen in den Rheinlanden, dem späteren vortragenden Rat im preuss. Unterrichtsministerium Joh.Schulze auf alle Weise gefördert, studierte seit 1819 und promovierte 1822 in Bonn. Zum Zweck der Ablegung des med. Staatsexamen begab er sich dann nach Berlin und trat hier während eines 1 1/2 jährigen Aufenthaltes zu RUDOLPHI in nähere Beziehungen, was für Müller's Ausbildung von wohlthätigem Einfluss insofern war, als Müller nach eigenem Geständnis von Rudolphi der naturphilosophischen Richtung entfremdet und der unbefangenen Naturbetrachtung, speziell den anatomischen Studien, zugeführt wurde. Nach seiner Rückkehr aus Berlin habilitierte Müller sich 1824 in Bonn als Privatdozent, wurde 1826 a.o., 1830 ord. Prof. und 1833 als ord. Prof. der Anatomie und Physiologie, sowie als Direktor des anatomischen Theaters und anatomischen-zootomischen Museums an Rudolphi's Stelle nach Berlin berufen. Hier wirkte er als eine der Zierden der Berliner Fakultät und Universität bis zu seinem 28.April 1858 plötzlich an Herzleiden erfolgten Tode. Müller wird zu Recht als glorreiches Haupt und anerkannter Führer einer biologischen Schule verehrt. Als Forscher und Lehrer vielseitig und bahnbrechend wie selten jemand, hat er in beiden Beziehungen namentlich auf den Gebieten der vergleichenden Anatomie und Physiologie eine geradezu überwältigende Tätigkeit entwickelt und diese Disziplinen mit zahllosen Neuerungen bereichert.-cf.PagelErste und einzige Ausgabe der extrem seltenen Dissertation von Johannes Müller. "Die Bewegungsstudien an Gliedertieren, die der Einjährig-Freiwillige drei Jahre vorher an der Koblenzer Kasernenmauer begonnen hatte, fanden also eine Fortsetzung. Die im Isis-Aufsatz (seine erste Publikation) mitgeteilten Gedanken und Beobachtungen wurden noch erheblich vermehrt und dann von Müller als Inaugural-Dissertation unter dem Titel "De Phoronomia Animalium" (deutsch etwa: "Bewegungsgesetze im Tierreich") bei der Medizinischen Fakultät der Universität Bonn eingereicht. Das Grundprinzip vergleichender Physiologie wird bereits hier angewandt: ein und dieselbe Funktion, hier die Bewegung, wird bei Tieren der verschiedensten systematischen Zugehörigkeit untersucht und in Vergleich gebracht. Viele von Müller mitgeteilte Einzelbeobachtungen sind wertvoll und wurden von ihm später in sein "Handbuch der Physiologie" aufgenommen." "So wird das Leben in der Bewegung gedeutet als eine "organische Säule" die Pole sind Bewegung und Streckung, oder die Kreisbewegung und die Bewegung in der Längenform: - beide auseinandergerissene Hälften der parabolischen Linie, auf welcher das Leben spielt"." "Nun - wenige Jahre später hätte Müller diese Sätze nicht mehr geschrieben, und es ist zu glauben, was Du Bois-Reymond mitteilt: "Mit solchem Ingrimm blickte Müller nachmals auf diese Verirrungen zurück, daß er selber dieser Arbeiten nie wieder gedachte, und jedes Exemplar, dessen er habhaft werden konnte, a u f k a u f t eund v e r b r a n n t e"." - G. Koller, Johannes Müller, 1958, S.32-34 "Unter seinen Thesen verteidigt er u.a. die Auffassung:"Psychologus nemo, nisi physiologus". Das ist ein Gegenstand, den er auch später hin oft behandelt hat." Später in "Berlin wird Müller für immer von seiner Neigung zur romantischen Interpretation der Natur geheilt, ohne daß er den Wert einer philosophischen Betrachtung der Natur je geleugnet, noch für überflüssig erklärt hätte. Ganz im Gegenteil, er hat es immer wieder ausgesprochen, daß es keine sinnvolle naturwissenschaftliche Forschung gibt ohne die Einordnung des Erfahrenen in das nur gedanklich zu erfassende und zu erweiternde Gesamtbild der Natur." siehe ausführlich - K.E.

        Italian decorated Ketubah.

      Ancona Italy 1822 - Illuminated and hand-written on parchment, calligraphic text in black ink within a wide-bordered water-colour depicting flowers and two large birds in the upper margin; some marginal defects, small tears, 62.5 x 43.2 cm. Mounted. An attractive example of a traditional Jewish marriage contract, fully manuscript and elegantly decorated with fine colours. An attractive example of a traditional Jewish marriage contract, fully manuscript and elegantly decorated with fine colours. This Ketubah was made for the Loni – Duranti wedding, celebrated on Sunday, the eve of the Jewish holiday Sukkot (14th of the month of Tishrey), year 5583 of the Jewish calendar (1822). Ancona is known to be one of the most prolific centres of Ketubah decoration in Italy. Jews started settling there around the end of the 10th century and by the mid 14th century they had become prosperous as an organised community, involved in the lending and banking businesses. After the city had fallen into the Papal state in 1429, Pope Martin V tried to develop Ancona as an Italian centre of commerce. In order to achieve that goal, the Jews were given permission to open banks and lend money with interest, which attracted immigrants from Germany, Spain, Sicily and Portugal. By 1550 the Jewish population of Ancona numbered about 2,700 individuals. The Ketubah is a nuptial agreement signed by the groom and presented to the bride as part of the traditional Jewish wedding ceremony. It formalises the duties and responsibilities of the groom towards the bride, including some basic obligations such as sustenance (food and clothing), marital relations and compensation in the event of divorce. The Ketubah is read aloud during the wedding ceremony, signed by two witnesses and usually handed to the mother of the bride for safekeeping. Ketubot are often hung in the home of the couple, as a reminder of their vows and mutual marital responsibilities. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Considérations sur l’industrie et la législation, sous le rapport de leur influence sur la richesse des Etats, et Examen critique des principaux ouvrages qui ont paru sur l’économie politique .

      - Paris, J.-P. Aillaud, 1822. In-8, cartonnage ocre à la bradel, pièce de titre de veau brun, tranches jaspées (rel. moderne Devauchelle), (8), 412, (2) p. Edition originale, et unique, de cet essai que L.-A. Say consacre à l’analyse critique des œuvres économiques de ses contemporains: Dupont de Nemours, Adam Smith, Canard, Lauderdale, Ganilh, Ricardo, Malthus, Destutt de Tracy, Saint-Chamans et son frère J.B. Say. L’auteur y développe une théorie entièrement originale dont l’importance a été réévaluée par les historiens modernes de l’économie politique. "Anticlassique", il combat la théorie libérale non pas comme les socialistes de son temps au nom de la justice, mais en réfutant la détermination de la valeur par le coût de production des classiques, pour y opposer une théorie personnelle de la valeur fondée sur l’utilité. Frère cadet de Jean-Baptiste Say auquel l'ouvrage est dédié, Louis-Auguste Say (1774-1840) fit fortune dans l’industrie sucrière. Il est le fondateur de l'empire sucrier portant son nom. Sur son œuvre économique cf. Marc Penouil, ‘Louis Say’, in "Revue économique", 1967, vol. 18, n°1, p. 98-122. (Einaudi, 5129. Goldsmiths, 23443. Kress, C.967). Très bon exemplaire, très bien relié.

        The History of England; from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution in 1688...[and] from the Revolution in 1688 to the Death of George II.

      London: J.F. Dove, 1822. Octavo, 13 volumes. Bound in contemporary red straight grain morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, raised bands, all edges gilt. Illustrated with numerous steel-engraved portrait plates throughout. An attractive and profusely illustrated set, of which the first eight volumes are by Hume, with Smollett contributing the final five. The History of England is David Hume's great work on the history of England, which he wrote in installments while he was librarian to the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh. It was published in six volumes in 1754, 1756, 1759, and 1761. The first publication of his History was greeted with outrage by all political factions, but it became a best-seller, finally giving him the financial independence he had long sought. Both the British Library and the Cambridge University Library, as well as Hume's own library, still list him as "David Hume, the historian." Hume's History spanned "from the invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688" and went through over 100 editions. Many considered it the standard history of England in its day.
