        Account of an Expedition from Pittsburgh to the Rocky Mountains, performed in the Years 1819, and '20 &under the Command of Major Stephen H. Long

      Philadelphia: H.C. Carey & Lea, 1822-1823. 3 volumes (text: 2 vols., octavo [8 1/2 x 5 1/4 inches]; atlas: 1 vol., quarto [11 3/4 x 9 3/8 inches]). Atlas: 11 engraved plates and maps (2 double-page maps after S.H. Long by Young & Delleker; 1 double-page plate of geological cross- sections; 8 plates [1 hand-coloured] after S. Seymour [6], T.R. Peale [1] and one unassigned, engraved by C.G. Childs [2], Lawson [1], F. Kearney [2], W. Hay [1], Young & Delleker [1]). Text: expertly bound to style in full tree calf, covers bordered with a gilt double fillet, flat spine in compartments divided by darker tree calf bands and gilt roll tools, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers. Atlas: experly bound to style in half tree calf over period marbled paper covered boards, spine uniform to the text. First edition of one of the most important early western expeditions. Edwin James was the botanist, geologist, and surgeon for this important government expedition, initially named the Yellowstone Expedition. Led by Major Stephen Long, the expedition added significantly to the earlier discoveries of Lewis and Clark and Zebulon Pike. In addition to his duties on the expedition, James subsequently served as the editor and compiler of this text, relying "upon his own records, the brief geological notes of Major Long, and the early journals of Thomas Say [who served as the expedition's naturalist]" (Wagner-Camp). Appendices to the text comprise astronomical and meteorological tables and Indian vocabularies. In addition to Long, James and Say, the expedition included Titian Peale as draughtsman and assistant naturalist; and Samuel Seymour as landscape artist. The published plates depict Oto Indians, views of the Plains, and buffalo.Major Long was the principal proponent of government-sponsored exploration of the West following the War of 1812. He travelled farther than Pike or Lewis and Clark, and blazed trails that were susequently followed by Fremont, Powell, and others. The expedition travelled up the Missouri and then followed the River Platte to its source in the Rocky Mountains before moving south to Upper Arkansas. From there the plan was to find the source of the Red River, but when this was missed the Canadian River was explored instead.Cartographically, the atlas contains the first maps to provide detail of the Central Plains. Upon returning to Washington from the expedition, Long drafted a large manuscript map of the West (now in the National Archives) and the printed maps in James's Account closely follows. The "Western Section" map is particularly interesting as it here that the myth of the Great American Desert was founded by Long: a myth which endured for decades. The designation Great American Desert appears east of the single range of the Rocky Mountains, together with a two-line note: "The Great American Desert is frequented by roving bands of Indians who have no fixed places of residence but roam from place to place in quest of game." Long's map, along with that of Lewis and Clark, "were the progenitors of an entire class of maps of the American Transmississippi West" (Wheat).

        Mr. Babbage's invention. Copies of the correspondence between the Lords Commissioners of His Majesty's Treasury and the president and council of the Royal Society, relative to an invention of Mr. Babbage. A letter to Sir Humphry Davy, Bart... on the application of machinery to the purpose of calculating and printing mathematical tables.London: House of Commons, 1823.

      First edition, and a very fine copy, of this version and even rarer than Babbage's privately printed version issued the year earlier. This separate printing of the British government's reprint of Babbage's letter to Davy includes, for the first time, the text of the letters from the Treasury and Royal Society. The government reprint was published both in Volume 15 of the House of Commons' Sessional Papers and as a separate offprint (as offered here). OOC 31. OCLC lists no copies of this separate printing.<br/><br/> "In the early 1820s Babbage, frustrated by 'the intolerable labour and fatiguing monotony of a continued repetition of similar arithmetical calculations', came up with the plan of designing a machine capable of performing various mathematical functions. By 1822 Babbage had constructed a model of his Difference Engine Number One, a special-purpose calculating machine far more complex than any that had previously been conceived, designed to compute mathematical tables by the method of finite differences and to print the results. In the design of his machine Babbage was influenced by the division of labor employed in the celebrated manuscript tables of de Prony which Babbage had seen in 1819. The division of labor, both physical and mental, became central themes of Babbage's economic thought later developed in his Economy of Machinery and Manufactures. <br/><br/> "Babbage was convinced of the 'great utility' of his machine, but knew that constructing a larger version would entail 'very considerable expense,' and would also leave him no time to pursue his studies in pure mathematics. On July 3, 1822, as a means of testing the waters, Babbage wrote an open letter to Sir Humphry Davy, president of the Royal Society, in which he presented a detailed description of his Difference Engine. This was his first public statement of his plans for his calculating engine, and his first publication on his project for developing calculating engines, on which he would devote most of his creative energy for the remainder of his life. A copy of this letter published as a pamphlet reached the Lords of the Treasury, who referred it back to the Royal Society on April 1, 1823, with a letter requesting the Society's opinion of Babbage's machine. One month later, on May 1, the Royal Society responded to the Treasury as follows: 'That it appears to the Committee, that Mr. Babbage has displayed great talents and ingenuity in the construction of his machine for computation, which the Committee think fully adequate to the attainment of the objects proposed by the Inventor, and that they consider Mr. Babbage as highly deserving of public encouragement in the prosecution of his arduous undertaking' (Great Britain. Parliament. House of Commons. Sessional Papers [1823], p. 6). <br/><br/> "This favorable report gained Babbage his first national funding of £1000 toward his construction of the Difference Engine. The project tested the limits of precision obtainable by machine tool makers at the time; it also ended up being far more costly than expected, claiming £17,000 of the government's money over the next decade before foundering in 1833, largely due to contractual disputes between Babbage and Joseph Clement, the engineer hired to construct Babbage's machine. By this time Babbage had begun to turn his attention to the Analytical Engine, a far more complex and powerful calculating machine whose design would occupy Babbage for most of the rest of his scientific career." (Hook & Norn, Origins of Cyberspace).. Oblong folio (335 x 202 mm), pp [1] 2-6 [2:docket title on verso], uncut and sewn as issued, very fine.

Scarce first edition of Fourier's milestone work of political theory, which is considered a founding work of Utopian Socialism and a main inspiration for Marx. The work, which contains "the essence of Fourier's doctrine" (David Owen Evans, Social Romanticism in France 1830-1848, p. 129.), is here presented together with the exceedingly rare complete supplement, which was published the following year.It is in the "Traité..." that Fourier presents the revolutionary ideas that Marx were to adopt and use in his "Kapital", namely the theory of poverty and exploitation and its relation to the means of production. These same ideas are those that made Marx speak of Fourier's "Gargantuan view of man".It is due to the "Traité de l'association" that Fourier is considered one of the founding fathers of Utopian Socialism (being by far the most utopian of them); in his quest for a more equal society, he became one of the very first to defend things such as same-sex sexuality and the rights of women - in fact, it is Fourier that later coins the word "Feministe", while stating that the position of women in society was equal to that of slaves. Many of his publications preceded those of de Saint-Simon, Owens, and Marx, but his ideas seemed to find greater influence when interpreted by others. Due to the lack of success of the "Traité", Fourier decided, the following year, to publish the "Sommaire", in an attempt to draw attention to his revolutionary ideas in the "Traité". The "Sommaire" constitutes a short, more easily understood, summary, though also containing some additional new work. The "Sommaire" is often referred to as "The Appendix" to the "Traité" and is considered as belonging to that work. One of the central themes of the work is the thought of "harmony": "The word harmonisme - here fully explained and described for the first time - was first applied to the highest of the passions or motives of humankind; then (as a synonym for Harmonie) to the ultimate stage of social evolution. The fortunate inhabitants of the perfected world he called harmoniens, a word coined in the present work. These words were duly translated by the Fourierites of other lands. Harmony, the Harmonic state, Harmonization, or integral contrasted association, were the terms used in the earliest English translations in 1841 to describe Fourier's proposed social system; and Harmonism was employed in the 1850's. The inhabitants were spoken of as Harmonians; and Fourier's philosophy as a whole was sometimes described as the Harmonian Doctrine. Even the word harmonious was called into service as a technical term, one English disciple writing of a Harmonious Phalanx." (Bestor, The Evolution of the Socialist Vocabulary, p. 264).Charles Fourier claimed to find inspiration in the exorbitant price of an apple in a Parisian restaurant and he convinced himself that he could design a more efficient way to produce and deliver goods. Unlike other socialists of his day, Fourier believed that the pursuit of self interest served as an effective incentive to productive work. He simply did not believe that the market economy of his day successfully mobilized the pursuit of self interest for the common good and he was offended by the low productivity of labor. He argued that most people were employed in deadening jobs that failed to fully utilize their energies, and that nearly two thirds of all workers were performing virtually useless tasks. A more efficient economic organization promised enormous benefits to all if only a benefactor capitalist would advance the money necessary to set up the first community or ''phalanstery''.Phalanxes, structures called Phalanstères or "grand hotels", were four level apartment complexes where the richest had the uppermost apartments and the poorest occupied the ground floor residence. Wealth was determined by one's job, jobs were assigned based on the interests and desires of the individual. There were incentives: jobs people might not enjoy doing would receive higher pay. Fourier considered trade, which he associated with Jews, to be the "source of all evil" and advocated that Jews be forced to perform farm work in the phalansteries. Furthermore he believed that there were twelve common passions which resulted in 810 types of character (it is not clear why exactly this number), so the ideal phalanx would have exactly 1620 people. One day there would be six million of these, loosely ruled by a world "omniarch", or a World Congress of Phalanxes.Fourier and his contemporaries such as Owen and Saint-Simon were named utopian socialist because of their visions of imaginary ideal societies. Many saw them as not being grounded in the material conditions of society and as reactionary. Despite Fourier's lacking sense of practicality his ideas profoundly influenced all later socialist political and economic though; Not only was he immortalized by Marx, "John Stuart Mill shared the same enthusiasm for Fourier as did the German Marx and Engels and the American George Ripley. Fourier's was "the most skillfully combined, and with the greatest foresight of objections, of all the forms of Socialism." (Feuer, The Influence of the American Communist Colonies on Engels and Marx, P. 466). Fourier's views inspired in the mid 19. century the founding of the communities in Utopia, Ohio, La Reunion near present-day Dallas, Texas and several other communities within the United States of America, including the North American Phalanx in Red Bank, New Jersey; Brook Farm in West Roxbury, Massachusetts and the Community Place and Sodus Bay Phalanx in New York State.In the mid 20th Century, Fourier's influence began to rise again among writers appraising socialist ideas outside the Marxist doctrines. After the Surrealists had broken with the French Communist Party, André Breton turned to Fourier, writing Ode à Charles Fourier in 1947."Traité de l'association domestique-agricole ":Kress C864 Goldsmiths 23694 Einaudi 1960 (including both works).

As time would reveal, these... included both Megalosaurus and Iguanadon" Dean, 40.

        Dictionnaire classique d'histoire naturelle, par Messieurs Audouin, Isid. Bourdon, Ad. Brongniart, De Candolle, Daudebard de Ferussac, A. Desmoulins, Drapiez, Edwards, Flourens, Geoffrey de Saint-Hilaire, A. de Jussieu, Kunth, G. de Lafosse, Lamouroux, Latreille, Lucas fils, Presle-Duplessis, C. Prevost, A. Richard, Thiebut de Berneaud, et Bory de Saint-Vincent. Ouvrage dirige par ce dernier collaborateur, et dans laquel on a ajoute, pour le porter au niveau de la science, un grand nombre de mots qui n'avaient pu faire partie de la plupart des dictionneaires anterieurs.

      A Paris: Rey et Gravier..., 1822 - 1831.. 17 vols., 8vo, full cont. green calf, gilt, ex-library with stamp to titles, folding tables in some volumes, the plate volume with 159 engraved plates and a folding map, the majority of the plates attractively coloured by hand, some occasional foxing of contents, bindings sl. dull with sl. rubbing at extremities. [Bory de Saint-Vincent's almost too colorful life story has sometimes overshadowed his reputation as one of the most thoughtful and productive naturalists of the early nineteenth century. A free spending extrovert who also dabbled in literary ventures, his career was complicated by involvement in a near-mutiny at sea, various political intrigues, and financial debts-to the extent that he spent years at a time avoiding the authorities, or actually being incarcerated. Throughout it all, however, he managed to keep up a career as a natural history collector. Bory was the first important island biogeographer, the result of his military career and many travels and his interest in the ideas of Buffon and Lamarck on organic change. He was one of the first to study the formation of coral reefs and the differences between the faunas of oceanic islands and continental areas, and to attempt a biogeographical classification of the oceans. Bory is also remembered for his early efforts to understand the origins and biogeography of the races of humankind, the spectacular herbarium he accumulated (which eventually was donated to the nation), his editorial and other contributions to the Dictionnaire Classique d'Histoire Naturelle, his leadership of collecting expeditions to Morocco, Algeria, and Egypt, the beautiful maps he made of every place he visited, and the pleasure he took in living out the life he had chosen for himself.

        View Near Fort Montgomery. No. 18 of the Hudson River Port Folio

      New York: Henry J. Megarey, [1822]. Aquatint, colored by hand, by John Hill, after W.G. Wall. The plate number "18" has been written in ink in the title. A few minor abrasions in the title and mild soiling. 18 1/8 x 24 inches. Superb example of one of the greatest and earliest works devoted to the American landscape Wall and Hill demonstrate in this view their great talent for investing apparently simple and random scenes with grandeur and intrigue. The focal point of the image is an unadorned raft with a number of men shown from so far away that there no distinguishing individual characteristics: they are mere figures floating down the calm, mirror-like river. The hills that slope down into the river are reflected to such a degree that it's hard to discern exactly where the hills stops and the reflection begins. The succession of hills and the river recede into the distance beneath a gray sky, also reflected in the river. The hills, river and sky seem to have a quiet liveliness of quite a different order than that of the active little figures on the raft. "The Hudson River Portfolio, a series of twenty views...celebrates the beauty of the Hudson and its surroundings. It is amongst the finest collections of New York State views ever published...The aquatints show us the region of the Hudson's headwaters, the rapids it creates on its journey downstream, the bridges it makes imperative overhead, the trade that its navigability spawns, and, most of all, the ennobling topographic settings through which it passes. In the final view, New York from Governor's Island, we see the Hudson at the end of its journey, where it joins the East River in New York Bay...William Guy Wall...was a native of Dublin who came to America in 1818...Beginning in 1826, he exhibited frequently at the National Academy of Design...[He was skillful with atmospheric perspective in his landsacpes, and he created almost spiritual effects with light, at a time when viewers were used to literal depictions. Between 1828 and 1835 he remained in America, but then returned to Dublin for twenty years. He came back to America for four years between 1856 and 1860, before again returning in Ireland where he lived for the remaining four years of his life] Wall frequently worked in tandem with John Hill, whose emigration from England predated that of Wall by two years...According to Koke, 'the artistic achievement for which Hill is best known...was the Hudson River Portfolio, a landscape series closely akin to the Picturesque Views of American Scenery recently finished for the Careys' (John Hill Master of Aquatint, p.86)...Hill, an aquatintist virtually without peer in America, was called in to fill the place vacated by John Rubens Smith, who dissociated himself from the Portfolio before he finished engraving the four plates of the first number...Hill belonged to a small group of English-trained engravers who raised the level of American print-making to an extraordinary degree" (Deak, pp. 217-218).

        HISTORY OF JOHNNY QUAE GENUS, THE LITTLE FOUNDLING OF THE LATE DOCTOR

      1822. [COMBE, William]. THE HISTORY OF JOHNNY QUAE GENUS, THE LITTLE FOUNDLING OF THE LATE DOCTOR SYNTAX: A POEM. By the author of the three Tours. London: R. Ackermann, 1822. First edition. Illustrated with 24 color aquatint plates by Thomas Rowlandson. Octavo. [4],267,[1] pp. Bound in full morocco, gilt title and double-rule frames in spine compartments, gilt double-rule borders and inner dentelles, a.e.g. Leather has faded from a deep purple to brown on spine and top-edge of boards. Text and plates are clean and bright despite occasional offsetting from some plates to facing text leaves. Originally published in monthly parts, the original stab-holes are evident in the borders of a few plates. This is Combe's own sequel to his very popular series of "Tours" of Doctor Syntax (published respectively in 1812, 1820 and 1821) which had inspired many parodies and imitations. Like the earlier titles in the series, it too is illustrated by Rowlandson. (CBEL II, 357; Tooley 413).

Den utvikbara planschen med en lagad reva i vikningen. Från Ericsberg.. Bring Itineraria svecana 251 som bara lyckats lokalisera två exemplar av det första arbetet, vars titel även innehåller Linnerhielms signeringsmärke. Textbladen avslutas med följande notis: "Desse vuer finnas eljest införde i den utkomne boken: Bref under resor i Sverige". "Bref under resor" utkom 1797 och många av illustrationerna avtrycktes i texten, vilken trycktes på för ändamålet inte särskilt lämpligt papper. Det tjockare planschpappret i "Svenska vuer" gör etsningarna större rättvisa. Bring påpekar även att den kortfattade textbilagan innehåller kompletterande uppgifter som inte återfinns i boken. Det andra arbetet utkom i två häften. Det bevarade omslaget innehåller även förklaringar till en del av bilderna. Konstnären Pehr Nordquist (1771-1805) hörde till bröderna Martins mera lovande elever. Han avled som ung i Neapel under en studieresa och hans minne bevarades i samtiden främst genom F. Boyes försorg. I "Strödda handteckningar" återfinns en rad självbiografiska teckningar under en resa från huvudstaden till Helsingborg, samt konstnärens illustrationer till Lenngrens båda dikter "Till en girig" och "Du som i höghet tror". Illustrationerna till den sistnämnda hade F. Boye låtit utgiva i gravyr redan 1817. "Strödda handteckningar" kallas i "Svenskt konstnärslexikon" för "en av litografiens inkunabler i Sverige." Litografen Ludvig Fehr kom efter en tid i Köpenhamn till Stockholm kring årsskiftet 1817-18, där han bildade det första litografiska tryckeriet tillsammans med C. Müller. Fehr flyttade snart vidare och fortsatte sin verksamhet först i Karlskrona och sedan Göteborg, varefter han 1822 startade det första litografiska tryckeriet i Norge

        Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica [Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy ]

      Glasguae (Glasgow): Ex Prelo Academico, Typis Andreae Et Joannis M. Duncan, 1822. First Printing. Full-Leather. The first Glasgow re-issue of the 1739 Jesuits&#39; edition, edited by John Martin Frederick Wright. The first Jesuits&#39; edition was published in Geneva in 1739-1742 and the second in 1760. The so-called Jesuits&#39; editions (so-called because the editors were really Minims) are valued because of their copious commentary, and also because they contain additional works by Bernoully, Maclarin, and Euler which represent all that was done on the theory of tides between the publication of Newton&#39;s Principia and the investigations of Laplace. (see Babson 30, Babson 32, Gray 17, and Wallis 17). Recently rebound 4 volumes in 2. Complete. Collation matches that of Gray (17) with 2 exceptions, both of which were errors on Gray&#39;s part: Gray incorrectly notes a last page of 430 (instead of 431) for Volume 1, and also incorrectly notes Volume III prelims as xxi instead of xxxvi which is correct. Both of these are correctly noted in Wallis (17) and Babson (32). Complete. Short closed tear at the base of page 202, volume 4. Recent tan calf with spine in 6 compartments, raised bands with red and black labels and gilt decorations, simple gold rulings and edge decorations. Spine decorations "aged", presents quite nicely on the shelf. For details and photos please see our website. Near Fine.

        VOYAGE PITTORESQUE EN SICILE

      Paris: P. Didot, l'Ainé [second volume: Jules Didot Ainé], 1822. FIRST EDITION. One of the Most Beautiful Color-Plate BooksOf Italian Scenes Ever Printed 641 x 495 mm (25 1/4 x 19 1/2"). Lacking the dedication leaf and subscriber list present in the Abbey copy. Two volumes. Edited by Jean Frédéric d'Ostervald. Contemporary red straight-grain morocco, textured paper boards, gilt titling on spine, edges untrimmed. One map (as called for, though the Abbey copy has two), and 92 ACCOMPLISHED AND BEAUTIFULLY HAND-COLORED AQUATINT PLATES OF SICILIAN VIEWS. Abbey "Travel" I, 262; Graesse VI, 400; Brunet V, 1379. Moderate rubbing to joints and elsewhere, covers with some scars, other minor problems externally, but the original bindings entirely solid--and surprisingly so for such an immense book with so many fabulous pictures to look at. Preliminary leaves and text lightly to substantially foxed, a half dozen plates with faint overall browning, one tissue guard missing, the margins of perhaps half the engravings with foxing (usually light, though noticeable in three or four cases in the second volume), but still a very pleasing copy of a beautifully illustrated book, the marginal foxing seldom distracting, and the engraved images themselves clear and clean, afflicted by neither foxing nor the dreaded offsetting from the text. This is an extraordinarily rare copy of one of the most beautiful color-plate travel books having to do with Italy. The large and luminous views of Sicily in our two volumes capture the magic of the island as experienced by the traveller of the early 19th century. Sicily's well-preserved Greek temples are, of course, featured, but port scenes, Medieval churches, picturesque villages, and the interior of Etna's crater are also depicted, all in exquisite color. The engravings, each accompanied by letter press explanations, are of great interest and beauty, and all but one of them are full-blooded tableaux, rather than plans or assemblages of small images. The size of the engraved surface varies on the page, as does the distance of the subject from the viewer: we are treated to everything from wide panoramic views to confining inner spaces. While the colors cannot be called pastel, they are far from garish, with lovely grays typically giving a softness to a scene that often employs subtle shades of yellow, blue, and green. The plates are memorable for their use of light and shadow to give a convincing feeling of three-dimensionality amidst luminous skies, darkened interiors, and a number of other variably lit settings. The book was originally published in 24 parts, and includes an historical précis by Gigault de La Salle giving an overview of events from antiquity to his own time. Abbey calls the work "the most ambitious of the coloured aquatint books edited by J. F. d'Ostervald," who produced a number of works on the picturesque, including two famous oversized editions focusing on regions in France. The book has always commanded a premium price: the unbound sheets were sold at the time of publication for the whopping sum of £34. In his note to the reader, Ostervald tells of his search among the portfolios of the artists of Switzerland, Germany, and England for the perfect materials for this collection. The plates cite the names of the artist and engraver, and Abbey notes that "English artists or engravers were responsible for nearly half" of the plates. Among these was Richard Parkes Bonington (1802-28), the tragically short-lived painter whose romantic works were greatly admired by Delacroix. Abbey estimates that about 500 copies of the book were produced, and comments that the book is "certainly rare, in this country at all events, only three copies being reported at auction in the last fifty years." The rarity of the book has, not surprisingly, increased since Abbey's remark: ABPC lists only three other copies at auction from 1975 to the present--two of them involving one volume only, the other involving both volumes, but with uncolored plates.
