        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).

Two months later the expedition continued aboard the Physicienne, which stopped for a time at Rio de Janeiro. Captain Freycinet's wife, Rose Pinon, was smuggled on board at the advent of the voyage and made the complete journey, causing some discord among the crew. Freycinet named an island he discovered after her - Rose Island among the Samoa islands." (Hill 28-9).

        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]

        ENSEI IHO MEIBUTSU KOO or SHIKYOO IKOKU MEIBUTSU KOH: MATERICA MEDICA.

      - [Edo 1822-1834, Suharaya]. Brown stitched wrs., very good, 36 volumes main text + 9 volumes supplement, entirely wood- block printed on hand-made paper, Illustrated with prints of medicinal plants & phamamcopeia, title slips. R A R E The complete set in 45 volumes. Some minor rubbing to the corners, edges, most title slips intact, numbered 1-36; the supplement 1-9, ca. 18 x 26 cm. This work outlined hundreds of useful plants and how to utilize them for medicine. * The book is important in its translation of technical terms from Dutch into Japanese." Therefore its apparent to this cataloger that the Udagawa author is one and the same person with an error in reading his given name. There are also some fascinatingillustrations from the Dutch that show experiments using glass beakers and some are connected to each other in a chemical process. There are also many pages of plant illustrations, each named. * WHO WAS UDAGAWA: Udagawa was distinguished by making and publishing Japan's first copper-etched anatomical atlas NAISHOO DOOHAN ZU in 1808. See G. Mestler pp.315-317 for details on this most important and famous of all Japanese medical works. Another entry on Mestler p.325 cites this current work. Udagawa was a successful physician and also a Rangaku-sha [Scholar of Dutch learning] who authored many important medical works in Japanese either inspired by or translated from from period Dutch medical resources. The current book is his 'Sui Generis' of his medical botanicals. A great set, with supplement, illustrates hundreds of plants and examples for prescription of medicine. * CONDITION: Seldom found complete if at all, an excellent example, minor light marginal stain on a few else quite clean. A fine resource and fascinating reference source. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: G. Mestler: INTRODUCTION TO WESTERN INFLUENCES IN PRE-MEIJI JAPANESE MEDICINE. * G. Mestler: A GALAXY OF OLD JAPANESE MEDICAL BOOKS, pp.315-317. * H. Bartlett: JAPANESE BOTANY DURING THE PERIOD OF WOOD-BLOCK PRINTING. This work is strangely not listed in Bartlett, but a very close relative is cited on p.549. He lists: UDAGAWA Yuan: SHOKUGAKU KEIGEN. RIGAKU NYUUMON: INTRODUCTORY STUDY OF BOTANY, [1833] which is a text showing the beginning of Western influence of illustrations of exotic plants copied from European books and the early use of Latin nomenclature, the appearance of Dutch or Malay common terms, see exhibit 111 & fig.102. One could easily speculate, that ENSEI IHO was actually written by Udagawa [one in the same] as was SHOKUGAKU KEIGEN. Bartlett states: ".the author is notable for his pioneering efforts in introducing European science & modes of instruction. A very closely related item to our copy. * Not listed in E. Merrill: A BIBLIOGRAPHY OF EASTERN ASIATIC BOTANY. * W. Whitney in his: NOTES ON THE HISTORY OF MEDICAL PROGRESS IN JAPAN. He cites Udagawa's given name as Yoan or Genshin [aka Shinsai]. Its apparent that a student of Dutch learning has renamed himself to be Joan or Yoan is a Japanese corruption of John or as pronounced in Dutch as Yo[h]an. Whitney cites several entries for information about him, as well as five of his books. All of which are of a botanical nature, covering materia medica and pharmacopoeia. * Please inquire with us as we may have a copies of the above bibliographies in stock for sale. * Scans can be sent by e-mail

        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.

Recueil de 6 mémoires sur les beaux-arts par le peintre et critique d'art espagnol Juan Agustín Ceán Bermúdez (1749-1829), ami intime de Goya qui peignit son portrait et l'un des premiers théoriciens espagnols de la collection et de l'étude des œuvres d'art. "Ceán puede considerarse el fundador de la moderna historiografía del arte en España" (Portús Pérez). Les 6 parties dont se compose ce volume, dotées d'une page de titre et pagination séparées, semblent avoir été imprimées séparément et sont réunies ici sous un titre collectif. Ce sont des dialogues sur la peinture et la sculpture: "Diálogo entre el Cardenal D. Gaspar de Borja y Velasco y D. Juan Carreño de Miranda sobre el aprecio, suerte y paradero que tuvieron sus retratos desde que se pintaron hasta ahora" (Madrid, en la imprenta del Censor, 1820).

"Bellas Artes: diálogo sobre la escultura en la dominación de los romanos" (s.l.n.d.). Cette première édition, réimprimée en 1870, est d'une grande rareté.

Gallichan became the Chaplain of the Gaol, Poor House and Hospital in Jersey and died in 1859. First Glasgow printing of the 1739 Geneva "Jesuit" edition, so-called despite the non-participation of Jesuits; the two editors were Minim monks. This was a hugely influential reprint of the third edition of 1726, with commentary by the editors and Jean-Louis Calandrini, professor of mathematics and philosophy at the University of Geneva. This edition of the Principia became the most extensively used because of the brilliance of the notes, which are almost the same length as Newton's text and employ Leibnizian calculus, and ran through two more printings in 1760 and 1822. Brunet describes the Glasgow printing as particularly "belle et soignee, avec les figures inserees dans le texte". Babson 32; Brunet IV, 49.
