Going HomeCoursing is the pursuit of game or other animals by dogs—chiefly greyhounds and other sighthounds—catching their prey by speed, running by sight, but not by scent. Coursing was a common hunting technique, practised by the nobility, the landed and wealthy, and commoners with sighthounds and lurchers. In its oldest recorded form in the Western world, as described by Arrian, the sport was practised by all levels of society, as remained the case until Carolingian forest law appropriated hunting grounds, or commons, for the king, the nobility, and other land owners.Animals coursed include hares, rabbits, foxes, deer of all sorts, antelope, gazelle, jackals, wolves. Jackrabbits and coyotes are the most common animals coursed in America. Competitive coursing in Ireland, the UK and Spain has two dogs running together. In America, generally speaking three dogs are run together.Lane, British Racing Prints, pp.75-76; Tooley, 43 (National Sports of Great Britain).

It includes Julian and Maddalo, The Witch of Atlas, Letter to Maria Gisborne, The Triumph of Life, Prince Athanase, Ode to Naples, Mont Blanc, as well as fifty-nine 'Miscellaneous Poems', nine 'Fragments', five translations, and Alastor (included because the original volume, published in 1816, was now so scarce that even Mary had found it difficult to track down a copy).

        A rare page from the original draft of Noah Webster's 1828 An American Dictionary of the English Language - the standard reference for American English

      n.p., c. 1824-1825. 8" x 10". "Autograph Manuscript (unsigned), 2 pages, 8"" x 10"", n.p., n.d., [c. 1824-1825], being a portion of a draft of An American Dictionary of the English Language (1828) with extensive edits and emendations throughout. Expected folds, with minor separations toward lower margin expertly repaired, else fine condition. A choice selection of definitions ranging from ""Biped"" to ""Bird"" Other words defined include ""Bipedial,"" ""Bipetalous,"" ""Biquadrate,"" ""Biquintile,"" ""Biradiated,"" and ""Birch,"" among others. Webster made the majority of his edits for the noun ""Birch"" cutting an entire paragraph that had read: ""This word is probably the same as bark; from the great use of birch barks among savage nations. the name was transferred to the tree, as was the name of beech to another species of three. See beech..."" Webster substituted that deleted passage with an alternate that is nearly identical what was printed in 1828: ""A genus of trees, known technically under the name Betula, of which there are four or five species; as the white or common birch- the dwarf birch - the Canada birch of which there are several varieties - the black birch."" As a whole, the draft manuscript offers an intimate understanding of Webster's editorial process. Printing and the Mind of Man observed that Noah Webster's dictionary, ""almost at once became, and has remained, the standard English dictionary in the United States"" Webster, the editors noted ""was an ardent nationalist, and...wanted to stress the political separation from Britain by the cultivation of a separate American language... Under the influence of his friend Benjamin Franklin he turned his attention to 'a reformed mode of spelling'; and although he rejected the radical phonetic innovations proposed by Franklin, he went far enough to give many printed American words a distinctive appearance... the book marked a definite advance in modern lexicography, as it included many non-literary terms and paid great attention to the language actually spoken..."" The balance of Webster's manuscript (some 450 leaves) now resides at the Pierpont Morgan Library, but at some early juncture leaves from the A and B section were separated (all that ever appeared for sale comes from this portion of the alphabet, so far as we can determine). Very few of these leaves are extant. Recently, a single page (in worse condition), sold for $8,125. (Bonhams, New York, Feb. 17, 2013, Lot 81) Offered with a copy of the corresponding page from the 1828 edition of Webster's dictionary."

Containing 569 hand colored and 7 plain engraved fashion plates making a total of 576 plates. The first volume contains 1824-1832 and has 321 hand-colored engraved plates. The second volume contains 1833-1840 and has 248 hand-colored engraved plates and 7 plain plates.Bound by Brook & Roberts (stamp signed on verso of front endpapers) in mid nineteenth century three-quarter blue calf over marbled boards ruled in blind. Spines with four raised bands ruled in gilt, two red morocco lettering labels, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Two of the color plates (for 1836) have been bound in upside down. Apart from some trimming to some of the lower margins just affecting imprint this exceptionally rare little book is in fine condition.Almost certainly the complete set of colored fashion plates from this rather uncommon British Fashion periodical. The Ladies Pocket Magazine ran from 1824-1840 and the British Library shows it as in 17 volumes. Although odd volumes of this work appear - we have never before seen a complete set and there is no such run listed in ABPC (at least for the past 40 years). The Ladies Pocket Magazine covers the very interesting early nineteenth century fashion periods of George IV and William IV and just touches the rather gloomier beginnings of the Victorian era. Other than the set listed by Hiler (p. 520) this is the only other complete set that we have ever seen. The copies cited in Colas and Lipperheide are just parts of the complete run.Hiler, p. 520; Colas, 1710 (1830-1835 only with 200 hand colored plates); Lipperheide, 4605 (1824-1833 only);

        Landschaft in der Umgebung von Albano.

      - Bleistift, braun laviert, auf cremefarbenem Bütten, links unten bezeichnet und datiert „Albano den 1 (oder 2.) July 24". 27,4:19,7 cm. Auf Untersatz montiert, mit vereinzelten kleinen Stockfleckchen, kleine Knickfalte in der linken oberen Ecke. Provenienz: Sammlung Anton (?) Heubach, nicht bei Lugt. Entstanden auf der Wanderung mit E.F. Oehme und A.L. Richter in das Albanergebirge im Mai/July 1824. Seine Schulausbildung und Erziehung erhielt der Sohn des bekannten Dichters E. Wagner (1769-1812) gemeinsam mit dem herzoglichen Erbprinzen Bernhard. Zunächst absolvierte er 1812-1815 ein Studium der Forstwissenschaft. Schon früh entwickelte er jedoch eine starke Neigung zur Malerei und nahm Zeichen- und Malunterricht bei T. Faber (1786-1863), C.A. Richter (1770-1848), Vater des bekannten A.L. Richter (1803-1884). Infolge brach er seine Ausbildung zum Forstwirt ab und besuchte die Dresdner Kunstakademie bis 1820. Dann ging er für kurze Zeit zum Studium an die Heidelberger Universität. Im Herbst des Jahres begleitete er Herzog Bernhard auf einer Reise durch die Schweiz bis nach Mailand. Nach seiner Rückkehr im Winter 1820 wurde er sogleich herzoglicher Hofmaler und Galeriedirektor in Meiningen. 1822-1825 lebte er in Rom, wo er dem engen Freundeskreis um A.L. Richter angehörte, mit dem er gemeinsam das Albaner- und Sabinergebirge durchstreifte. Die Freundschaft nahm jedoch aufgrund eines Streites noch in Italien ein jähes Ende. 1823 unternahm er eine Reise nach Neapel und Ischia, gemeinsam mit C.W. Götzloff (1799-1866) und wohl auch E.F. Oehme (1797-1855). Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Meinigen wurde er erneut von Herzog Bernhard zum Galerieinspektor und Hofrat ernannt.

        Manuscript volume of lecture notes on analysis and mechanics delivered at the École Polytechnique.[Paris: 1824-25].

      A remarkable survival, the only recorded set of notes of Cauchy's first-year undergraduate lectures at the École Polytechnique for 1824-25, taken by his student Louis de la Moricière. No other set of notes of Cauchy's lectures at the École Polytechnique has appeared in commerce, and we have been able to trace only three sets in French public libraries (for the years 1815-16, 1822-23 and 1828-29). "The most important figure in the initiation of rigorous analysis was Augustin-Louis Cauchy. It was, above all, Cauchy's lectures at the École Polytechnique in Paris in the 1820s that established a new attitude toward rigor and developed many characteristic nineteenth-century concepts and methods of proof" (Grabiner, pp. 2-3). These notes are of considerable historical importance: although the lectures on analysis were published in four great treatises (see below), the content of the lectures evolved significantly during Cauchy's 15 years of teaching so that the content of a particular series of lectures may differ significantly from the published version. Moreover, the notes provide a unique insight into Cauchy's lectures on mechanics, which were never published.<br/><br/> "The École Polytechnique in Paris, where Cauchy delivered his lectures, was the first and foremost scientific school in Europe. Most of the leading French mathematicians and mathematical physicists of the age went there; many leading mathematicians read the courses of lectures written there as soon as they were published as books. Paris was the center of the mathematical world, and many mathematicians not lucky enough to be French came there to study" (Grabiner, p. 14). <br/><br/> The original development of the calculus by Leibniz and Newton had relied on intuitive geometric arguments. Although the majority of scientists and mathematicians accepted the truth of the calculus because of its impressive success in describing and predicting the workings of the natural world, especially in astronomy and mechanics, some, notably Bishop George Berkeley and Michel Rolle, were skeptical about the soundness of its foundations. Their criticisms were addressed by, among others, Colin Maclaurin and Jean le Rond d'Alembert. The next major development came in 1797, when Joseph-Louis Lagrange published his <i>Théorie des fonctions analytiques</i>, based on his lectures at the École Polytechnique. Lagrange used power series expansions to define derivatives, but his approach left open the question as to whether all functions could be expressed as power series. In 1815, just two years after Lagrange died, Cauchy joined the faculty at the École Polytechnique as professor of analysis and started to teach the same course that Lagrange had taught. He inherited Lagrange's commitment to establish proper foundations for the calculus, but he followed Maclaurin and d'Alembert rather than Lagrange and sought those foundations in the formality of limits. <br/><br/> "Cauchy first taught analysis in 1815-16, to the second years, as replacement for Poinsot: while not explicitly based on limits, the course showed some future signs, such as the use of sequences of values of a function. Then he and Ampère (his former teacher) taght the course in analysis and mechanics from 1816 to 1827, when Ampère left to give more time to his teaching of physics at the Collège de France. They alternated between the first and second years at the school, so that one <i>professeur</i> took the same promotion for both their years; Cauchy's cycle began in even-numbered years. <br/><br/> "The published syllabi began to show changes from 1816-1817 onwards; a 'distinction between continuous and discontinuous functions' and 'rules on the convergence of series' appeared then, for the first year" (Grattan-Guinness, pp. 709-710). From this point Cauchy gradually increased the 'algebraic analysis' content of his lectures, departing further and further from the presecribed syllabus. "A farcical climax occurred on 12 April 1821, during one of the lectures ... lectures were to comprise 30 minutes' revision followed by an hour's discourse; but on this occasion, the 65th of the allotted 50 lectures on analysis to first years, he taught non-stop for 110 minutes; so a few students became restless, made noises and walked out. The <i>sous-inspectuer</i>, who stood over students in lectures to enforce discipline, reported the incident to the <i>Directeur</i>, when it became an <i>affaire</i>, with memoranda passing between the school and the <i>Ministère de l'Intérieure</i>" (Grattan-Guinness, p. 711). <br/><br/> The content of the lectures in the period 1818-19 corresponds to that of his first great textbook <i>Cours d'analyse</i>, published in 1821. "It is one of the most influential mathematics books ever written. Not only did Cauchy provide a workable definition of limits and a means to make them the basis of a rigorous theory of calculus, but he also revitalized the idea that all mathematics could be set on such rigorous foundations. Today the quality of a work of mathematics is judged in part on the quality of its rigor; this standard is largely due to the transformation brought about by Cauchy and the <i>Cours d'analyse</i>" (Bradley & Sandifer, p. vii). Nevertheless, "as Gilain has convincingly argued, it 'already seemd obsolete as a textbook for the students of the École Polytechnique before it even appeared,' due to changes in official programs. During the 1820s Cauchy himself increasingly reduced the weight of algebraic analysis in his course. He was officially invited by the Council of Instruction of the École to conform to the program, and not waste time scheduled for teaching the application of calculus (of the highest importance for future engineers) by dealing with abstract and abstruse questions of rigor, 'a luxury of analysis which was undoubtedly suitable for papers to be read at the Institute, but superfluous for the instruction of the students at the École'" (Bottazzini & Dalmedico, p. 34). <br/><br/> In 1820-21, Cauchy accordingly reduced the number of lectures devoted to 'algebraic analysis' from 32½ to 15, while delivering 32 lectures on differential and integral calculus instead of 19½ and 19 lectures on geometry instead of 11. The parts of his course devoted to differential and integral calculus were now separated, although it was still official policy to teach them together. In the lectures of 1822-23, in order to comply with a request of the mathematics examiners Poisson and Prony, Cauchy further reduced the 'algebraic' preliminaries to just three lectures. He now devoted 40 lectures to differential and integral calculus: these were published as <i>Résumé des Leçons</i> in 1823. Each of the <i>leçons</i> was printed on exactly four pages, designed to be distributed to the students as the lectures progressed. <br/><br/> Although the Council of Instruction did not change the analysis program in 1824-25, Cauchy's course was transformed profoundly, as Gilain has noted. The part devoted to differential calculus was extended to 25 lectures, rather than the 20 devoted to this topic in 1822-23. It now included Cauchy's generalized 'mean value theorem,' which he had just discovered and which enabled him to give a simple proof of Taylor's theorem with Lagrange's form of the remainder. This innovation was published in an 'Addition' to the <i>Résumé</i>. His course in 1824-25 is also notable for the increasing number of lectures devoted to geometric applications of differential calculus: 17 rather than 11 in 1822-23: these lectures were the basis for the first volume of his <i>Leçons sur les Applications du Calcul infinitesimal à la Géométrie</i>, published in 1826. In order to accommodate the increased number of lectures devoted to differential calculus and its applications, the section at the end dealing with integral calculus was reduced to 8 lectures from the 20 given in 1822-23. Another significant change was that, contrary to his previous practice, he treated the indefinite integral before the definite integral. This may have been a response to criticism of Cauchy, by the Council of Instruction in March 1825, on the grounds that his course was falling behind schedule: despite Cauchy's efforts to catch up, the mechanics section, which started late and should have finished on 7 July, actually continued until 6 August! <br/><br/> In 1826-27 the algebraic preliminaries disappeared completely, the course beginning with 20 lectures on differential calculus whose content is close to that of his last textbook, <i>Leçons sur le calcul differential</i>, published in 1829. This was followed by 15 lectures on geometric applications of differential calculus, similar in content to those of 1824-25, 7 further lectures on calculus and a further 8 lectures on geometric applications, these corresponding to the second volume of <i>Leçons sur les Applications du Calcul infinitesimal à la Géométrie</i>, published in 1828. In 1828-29, the last year in which Cauchy taught first-year students, the calculus section was extended further and some of the geometric applications transferred to the second year. <br/><br/> Following the July 1830 revolution in France, Cauchy was required to sign an oath of allegiance to the new regime. He refused to do so and so lost all his positions in Paris. He spent the next several years in Turin, before returning to Paris in 1838. <br/><br/> "In contrast to the fame of his teaching of analysis at the École Polytechnique, Cauchy's lectures on mechanics there are not well-known, for he never wrote a textbook on the subject. The records of his lectures show that he went through the material prescribed in the programmes ... they also show that, after the debacle of 1821 when he had been teaching too much analysis and too little mechanics, he increased the number of lectures in mechanics in the following years, and sometimes taught up to the required number of 50 lectures. Being Cauchy, he had to put some new ideas into his teaching, and these manifested themselves principally in several papers in his <i>Exercices</i> and in Ferrusac's <i>Bulletin</i>' (Grattan-Guinness, p. 1154). <br/><br/> The contents of the volume are as follows. <br/><br/> <i>Analysis</i> <br/> 10 Notebooks on 186 leaves, comprising: <br/> Analyse algébrique, 1er cahier: ff.

He studied at the Ecole Polytechnique from 1824 to 1826, gaining his place there with the help of Auguste Comte. "After entering the engineers in 1829, Lamoricière was sent to Algiers (1830) as a captain in the Zouaves. In 1833 he played a prominent role in the creation of the Arab Bureau, which was to coordinate information on French Arab colonies. Military success at Constantine led to his promotion to colonel (1837) and thereafter he rose rapidly to marshal (1840) and to governor of a division (1843). An efficient and distinguished general, he served as governor general of Algeria during the incumbent's absence in 1845. In France in 1846, Lamoricière was elected deputy for Sarthe and submitted a plan for free, rather than military, colonization of Algeria. He was concerned that a war of extermination against the Arabs would leave Algeria a barren wasteland instead of a rich and useful colony. He served as minister of war (1848) and was sent to Russia on a diplomatic mission (1850-51) dealing with political, military, and colonial affairs. As an opponent of the rising power of Louis-Napoléon, he was arrested (1851) and exiled, but was allowed to return in 1857. In 1860 he led the papal troops against Piedmont but was defeated at Castelfidardo and returned to France" (<i>Britannica</i>). <br/><br/> U. Bottazzini & A. D.

        Ourika

      Paris: Chez Ladvocat, . Édition Originale.. Intérieur bon état malgré légéres rousseurs éparses. Couverture défraichie et tachée. Provenance: Exlibris: A Debidour (Élie Louis Marie Marc Antonin Debidour). / First published edition, following a private printing of 25 copies. A very good+ copy in contemporary paper-covered boards. An anonymously published novel by a French woman who was a close friend of Chateaubriand and who established a well-known salon in London. Her work has been compared to that of Richardson and Rousseau for obvious reasons, but she is perhaps more relevantly understood in the context of the early 19th-century French women's writing that has only rather recently become a subject of study. Based on the true story of a Sengalese servan, unaware of her race until she overhears talk of it among the French family for whom she works, and thus begins her life as a black woman. In large part the tale recounts her hopeless love for a white man and her eventual retreat to a convent. This is the first European novel featuring a black female protagonist, and according to John Fowles who at least in part based his own The French Lieutenant's Woman on the work, the first attempt by a European to enter the mind of a black character. An attractive copy of this cultural landmark. . Édition Originale. Paris, Chez Ladvocat, 1824. 18 x 11 cm. 172 pages. Relié plein cuir vert / Beautiful contemporary Hardcover.

An attractive copy of this cultural landmark. Claire, Duchesse de Duras (née Claire de Kersaint) (1777, Brest, Finistère ?- 1828) was a French writer best known for her 1823 novel called Ourika, which examines issues of racial and sexual equality, and which inspired the 1969 John Fowles novel The French Lieutenant's Woman. Claire de Duras left her native France for London during the French Revolution in 1789, and returned to France in 1808 as the Duchess of Duras. She maintained a famous literary salon in post-Revolutionary Paris and was the close friend of Chateaubriand, who she had met while in exile in London, and who helped her to publish her books. Ourika was published anonymously in 1823, one of five novels Claire de Duras had written during the previous year; only two of them were published during her lifetime. The three novellas that she did publish were only done so in order to prevent any possible plagiarism. Claire de Duras treated complex and controversial subjects, primarily dealing with oppressed/marginalized characters. She explored many fundamental principles of the French Revolution, and touched upon the intellectual debates of the Age of Enlightenment, particularly the equality of all men -- and women. In holding with these subjects, tragedy is a common theme. For a long time she was seen as the writer of small and unimportant sentimental novels, but recent criticism has revealed her works to be treasure troves of postmodern identity theory. It is likely she has not been well read because her choice and treatment of subject could not be appreciated until recently; she was ahead of her time. (Wikipedia) Extrait du résumé : Ravie, vers 1786, à un bateau négrier avant la traversée de l'Atlantique par un riche aristocrate qui achète la fillette, à peine âgée de deux ans, et en fait cadeau à Madame de Beauvau, Ourika n'aurait pu avoir que le destin de ces bibelots de luxe qui égayaient la cour et que l'on retrouve enturbannés, costumés d'or et de poupre dans les peintures de Watteau ou de Lancret. Mais son histoire fut tout autre. Madame de Beauvau l'éleva comme sa fille lui donna une éducation brillante et raffinée et elle traversa à ses côtés les turbulences révolutionnaires et les dangers de la Terreur. Un jour, seulement, Ourika découvrit la réalité de sa condition et le préjugé de couleur qui la condamnait à la solitude, elle entra au couvent et mourut de chagrin. Elle avait tout juste 18 ans. Morte loin du monde dans l'obscurité d'un couvent, Ourika aura pourtant eu un destin post mortem étonnant. Son histoire passionna les romantiques du début du XIXe. La duchesse de Duras s'en saisit et imagina un récit fait en confidence par Ourika dans son couvent peu avant de mourir. Elle raconte son enfance, sa méprise, l'amour de sa protectrice et sa grandeur d'âme. Le roman de Mme de Duras, dès 1823, circula dans les salons littéraires de Saint-Germain et emporta l'adhésion de toute une société aristocratique en mal d'histoires où la noblesse fasse la preuve de ses qualités morales et humanistes, comme cette sainte Mme de Bauveau qui éduqua et protégea dans sa maison Ourika.

        Don Juan

      London: 1819-, 1824. One volume, quarto, half calf rebacked; and six volumes octavo, half morocco; showing wear to the edges and some chipping at spine extremities. Composite set of first editions, first quarto volume rather foxed. Don Juan was issued in three paper formats: this set was originally a set of the six small octavo editions, but has been enhanced by the inclusion of the large quarto first edition of the first volume, in a different binding. Slight variation in collation suggest that the last three volumes are later issue.Byron's satiric masterpiece had an involved publishing history, due in part to its critical rubbishing in tension with its popular success. Nonetheless, it is now held to be Byron's magnum opus. The first edition was issued without the infamous preface in which Byron savaged most of his contemporaries, and thus opens with his famous mock heroic hyperbole: 'I want a hero: an uncommon want...'.
