        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.

        A Collection of Portraits of the Savage Tribes Inhabiting the Boundaries of the Colony of the Cape of Good Hope. Taken from the Life in 1812, by an Officer of the 21st Lt. Dragoons, engaged in an Expedition against those Tribes, under Lt.-Col. Graham.

      Edward Orme, London 1822 - Later 3/4 gilt lined morocco over red cloth with the spine divided by two raised bands into three compartments with the title in gilt along the spine. Folio, approximately 380 x 270 mm with slightly varying sizes of the paper. A lithographed title page and a total of eight plates consisting of five lithographs printed by McQueen & Co. and three aquatints, all published by Edward Orme, London, May 10th, 1822 which all have been finely coloured by hand, with the original wrappers bound in at the end. One plate, titled "Kaffer Chief" with two mended tears, one in the middle from left to right, the other in the upper left corner (see picture nr. 5). Both have been restored very professionally without Japanese paper or archival tape on the reverse side of the plate. Extremities of the boards and the back cover a bit rubbed, some wear and some very small tears along the edges of the paper and an occasional small spot, but overall a very attractive copy of this work. The work is extremely rare with only four records in ABPC and RBH combined since 1939. All copies without the original wrappers. The work is described in Mendelssohn ("., which is now of great rarity.") and Hosken but also those copies lack the original wrappers which have been bound in here. As mentioned in the title this set was published as a collection of eight plates which came loose in wrappers. The very few surviving sets all have been bound with just one exception, the copy from the Quentin Keynes collection that was auctioned by Christie's in April 2004, however, that set was incomplete, lacking two plates and also there the wrappers were missing. As we cannot find any copies in institutional libraries worldwide this means that an example of these wrappers most likely was unknown up till now. Hosken pp. 48/49, Mendelssohn II, p. 271.

        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.

        Dorset Lent Assizes, 1822. Rex versus Bourne, printer and publisher of the Weymouth, Poole, and Dorchester Gazette, for a libel.

      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).

I (probably from binding process); internally overall bright, clean and crisp, the plates overall fine, the text blocks strong and square. Ray England, no. 75. Provenance: Philip Hamond (1782-1824), High House, West Acre, Norfolk, his contemporary engraved bookplates; each bookplate signed indistinctly in ink top center “A. Ham—nd” (possibly Philip’s son Anthony, b. 1805, or Anthony’s son Anthony, b. 1834). Laurence Binyon, of the Department of Prints and Drawings, British Museum, offered this early and durable appreciation (“John Crome and John Sell Cotman,” The Portfolio, no. 32, 1897, at pp. 64-72), well worth recalling at length: “All Cotman's etchings [.] are, in fact, simply records of architectural studies. It is in this light that we must view them; and so regarded, they have extraordinary merit. Few have understood architecture so well, or drawn it with such mastery. [.] He went to Normandy, and to see architecture, not pictures. [.] The result of these visits was the great series of 100 etchings, published in 1822. These etchings are more interesting architecturally than as drawings; and avowedly so. For Dawson Turner, in his introduction, says expressly that the buildings selected were chosen principally for certainty as to date. He tells us that many much more beautiful subjects might have been selected, but that these were excluded. [.] Still, some of the plates, especially those in which the building is made the centre of a landscape, are noble and impressive compositions. [.] The two views of Chateau Gaillard, one from below, the other from above, with the massive ruins standing desolate on their rocky solitudes; Tancarville Castle with its fringed cliffs reflected in the sunny stream; Falaise rising steeply above headlong boulders; and Mont St. Michel, surrounded by infinite sand and sea, are all seen as only Cotman would have seen them, and portrayed with a fine appreciation of their grandeur.” [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Arago was the artist of the expedition, which visited Western Australia, Timor, Hawaii, and New South Wales. The original ship was wrecked off the Falkland Islands. 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). "The Hawaiian portion of the text, contained on more than 150 pages, records impressions of the artist's stops on Hawaii, Maui, and Oahu. Extensive portions of the text also record the Arago impressions of Australia, Guam, and the Marianas Islands. The artist's main interest (as reflected by the plate subjects) are of peoples encountered. Several of the plates record somewhat gruesome aspects of Hawaiian culture" (Forbes 537).

        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. Rothschuh, Geschichte der Physiologie, 1953, pp.112-118

        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]
