        Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica [Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy ]

      Ex Prelo Academico Typis Andreae Et Joannis M. Duncan 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' edition, edited by John Martin Frederick Wright. The first Jesuits' edition was published in Geneva in 1739-1742 and the second in 1760. The so-called Jesuits' 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'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'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.

        Ledger for a New York Merchant, 1819 - 1828

      Hardcover. Very good. An un-named merchant, with a full clientele of individuals, with the usual entries for purchases of sugar, tea, rum, shrub, tobacco, bitters, flour, and nautical supplies for boats including sails and tack. Most interesting are the multiple entries for Daggett & Kensett. Our merchant appears to act as a bank & supplier for them, and supply ships in the US Navy. Payment of cash & occasionally supplies appear on the left side of the ledger, with long lists of US Navy ships & Captains on the right side of the ledger, with payments. Amongst the provisions supplied to Daggett & Kensett are Cash for Tin $53.63 1822, and 1823 Sept. 13, 12 barrels vinegar. They had developed a process for canning seafood (salmon, oysters and lobsters), in 1819, and in 1825, Ezra Daggett and Thomas Kensett of New York City were granted the first U.S. patent for food storage in cans. An April 3rd 1823 entry reads "Apl 3rd 1823 to Nov. 30th 1824 provisions sold US Navy received by US Navy received by Dept .... $4350.30." The merchant had a good business, with deposits at the Franklin Bank, Bank of America & Bank of the United States, at times over $12,000. Other clients included the Brig Comet, Alfred Churchill, Sloop Eagle, Alexander M. Hamilton, Capt. Wm. Bunnell, Asaph Hall, Chatham 1823, possibly the father of Asaph Hall (October 15, 1829 - November 22, 1907) the American astronomer who discovered the moons of Mars in 1877.

        Designs for the Pavillon [sic.] at Brighton. Humbly inscribed to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales. By H. Repton ... with the assistance of his sons, John Adey Repton, F.S.A. and G.S. Repton, architects

      London: printed by Howlett & Brimmer for J. C. Stadler, sold by Boydell & Co., Longman, Hurst, Rees & Orme, [etc.], [1822] [text watermarked 1821- 1822; plates 1822]. Folio. (21 7/8 x 13 3/4 inches). Emblematic frontispiece printed in bistre, 1 hand-coloured plan, 7 aquatint plates (one tinted with a sepia wash, six hand-coloured [one with an overpage, one double-page with two overslips, one folding with two overslips, one single-page with two overslips, one single-page with one overslip]), 11 aquatint illustrations (seven uncoloured, one with a sepia wash, three hand-coloured [two of these with a single overslip]), all by J.C. Stadler after Repton. Uncut. Expertly bound to style in full green straight- grained morocco, covers with a wide decorative border tooled in gilt and blind, spine in eight compartments with double raised bands, the bands highlighted in gilt, lettered in the second compartment, the others with an overall repeat decoration in gilt, brown endpapers. A fine, wide margined copy of Repton's fascinating proposal for a royal palace at Brighton. Humphry Repton was the main successor to Lancelot 'Capability' Brown as an improver of grounds for the English gentry in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. He was particularly noted for his Red Books. These were produced for each individual client and were made up from a manuscript description of his proposed improvements bound with Repton's own watercolour drawings of the grounds, with his proposed alterations displayed on an overlay. His proposal for Brighton pavilion was no different and the present work "was based directly on the original Red Book, which was sent to the publisher and engraver, J.C. Stadler, of 15 Villiers St., Strand. The drawings, by Repton and his sons, were sumptuously reproduced in aquatint, mostly in color, complete with their overslips and slides. Stadler himself took on the financial responsibility" (Millard, British p. 245). "Repton was first summoned to Brighton by the Prince of Wales in 1797. Payments were made to him over the next five years for works in the garden of the Prince's still modest marine villa... Then, in October 1805, Repton was requested to attend on the Prince in Brighton... The Prince and Repton met on 24 November. By 12 December Repton had returned to Brighton with a sheaf of drawings showing possible improvements... The prince was intrigued and asked for a design for an entirely new house. Repton presented his scheme in February 1806 in the form of [a]... Red book, now in the Royal Library at Windsor... By then the prince's initial enthusiasm had dulled; he was beset with financial difficulties and had laid aside all elaborate schemes for the enlargement of the pavilion" (Millard op.cit. pp.243-244). Repton's designs were inspired directly by the wonderful Indian architecture so ably pictured in Thomas and William Daniell's Oriental Scenery (1795- 1808).First published in 1808, the present issue dates from 1822 and may mark an attempt to take advantage of the interest generated when architect John Nash completed his work on the Pavilion for King George IV. Between 1815 and 1822 Nash redesigned and greatly extended the Pavilion, and it is the work of Nash which can be seen today. The pavilion as it was finally completed still owed a huge debt to Indian architecture but was in a form which re-interpreted the Indian ideal in a fashion more suitable to both English tastes and climate. Abbey Scenery 57 (1822 watermarks) and cf.55; Millard British 66 (2nd edition); cf. Tooley p.207; cf. Prideaux p.349

        Autograph letter signed to Andr?elly

      Geneva, 1822. No Dust Jacket. Boissier, Henri (1762-1845). Autograph letter signed to Andr?elly (1802-51). Geneva, 21 March 1822. 2pp. plus integral address leaf. 202 x 155 mm. Docketed. From Professor Henri Boissier, founder of Geneva's natural history museum, to the young Swiss businessman Andr?elly, acting as the museum's purchasing agent in England, regarding the purchase of insect specimens for the museum. Boissier informs Melly that the museum's collections have recently been augmented "par un don de col?teres de M. le Dr. Peschier o? y a de bonnes choses, & par un achast de quelques bons papillons & insectes exotiques que m'a procur?. Pr?st" [by a gift of coleoptera from Dr. Peschier containing some good things, and by a purchase of several good butterflies and foreign insects from M. Pr?st].This last purchase "a un peu r?it la somme que la cours avait mit ?a disposition. Je ne peut donc vous faire payer pour le moment qu'un bon de f. 400 que je vous prie d'employer, comme vous le jugerai convenable, surtout en orthopt?s, h?pt?s & n?opt?s dont nous sommes tr?mal fournis" [has reduced somewhat the amount made available to me from the course. At this moment I can only pay you the sum of 400 francs which I urge you to use, as you see fit, primarily for orthoptera, hemiptera and neuroptera, which we greatly lack]. Boissier lists several species of each that he wishes to acquire, including "criquets & sauter[elles] exotiq[ues]" [foreign crickets and grasshoppers] and "termites ou fourmis blanches" [termites or white ants]. He instructs Melly to expedite the shipment of insects to him so that he will have enough time to unpack them and put them in cases. "Dr. Peschier" may refer to Geneva native Charles Gaspard Peschier (1782-1853), a pioneer of homeopathic medicine in French-speaking countries. M. Pr?st, another Genevan, was a founder of the firm of Pr?st and Morris in London. Boissier's correspondent, Andr?elly, ended up settling in England in 1822 (the year that this letter was written), and becoming a prominent businessman in northern England. He acted as agent to the Viceroy of India and then to the Egyptian Government, dying of fever while on a tour of the Nile in 1851.

        Sur les fonctions du cerveau et sur celles de chacune de ses parties

      l'Auteur Paris: l'Auteur, 1822. Second edition. No Dust Jacket. Gall, Franz Joseph (1758-1828) & Spurzheim, Johann Caspar (1776-1832). Sur les fonctions du cerveau et sur celles de chacune de ses parties. . . . 8vo. Multi-vol. text, each vol. with own title. Paris: l'Auteur. . . , 1822-25. 6 vols. 214 x 135 mm. Gilt red boards c. 1825, uncut. Fine set. edition, revised, of the Anatomie et physiologie du systeme nerveux(1810-19) which introduced the theory of localization of cerebral function. See Garrison-Morton 1389. This new edition in reduced format was revised by Gall without the collaboration of Spurzheim. The volumes(except vol. 3) bear the AUTOGRAPH SIGNATURE of Gall on the versos of their half-titles to protect against pirated editions. In order to hold the price down Gall did not republish the magnificent folio-sized plates of the first edition for the second, and he deleted the portion on the descriptive anatomy of the brain and nervous system, concentrating on the physiology. In the sixth volume, however, Gall discussed the treatises on neuroanatomy and neurophysiology published between 1819 and 1825 as a way of answering the criticisms of his work by such authors as Flourens.
