        Mémoire sur les intégrales définies prises entre des limites imaginaires.

      Paris Chez de Bure Frères 1825 - First edition. 4to., [ii], 68, [1] pp., modern half calf, marbled boards, an excellent example. "Le plus court chemin entre deux vérités dans le domaine réel passe par le domaine complexe." "The shortest path between two truths in the real domain passes through the complex domain." (Jacques Hadamard). Augustin-Louis Cauchy was one of the greatest mathematicians of the modern era. This pamphlet, of which only 500 were printed, is widely regarded as one of Cauchy's most important contributions to mathematics. With it Cauchy created the key tool for the formalisation of the analysis of complex numbers. The theorem, know known as the Cauchy-Goursat theorem after Goursat managed to remove one of its constraints, allows mathematicians to simplify difficult functions in complex analysis. Technically it says that if two different paths connect the same two points, and a function is holomorphic everywhere "in between" the two paths, then the two path integrals of the function will be the same. A note about complex analysis: Complex numbers include the square root of -1. They become very useful when trying to solve difficult problems amongst the real numbers - a real number can be represented as the product of two complex numbers. One can then use the theory of complex numbers to deduce a result in the real numbers. Complex analysis is the mathematical field which develops theorems of functions of complex numbers. Whilst to the lay person, complex analysis is arcane, it is incredibly useful for physicists solving problems in such diverse fields as quantum mechanics, fluid dynamics and electrical engineering. A contemporary visual applications is development of complex scenery in computer-generated images; it is possible to generate very complex shapes using complex analysis with little computational power. A good example of this is a digital scene of a field of grass waving in the wind, which can be rendered using the tools of complex analysis. The Mandlebrot Set is another visually arresting (and infinitely complex) illustration of certain complex numbers. Grattan-Guinness, Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 1640-1940, Ch. 28 (by F. Smithies); and see Smithies, Cauchy and the Creation of Complex Function Theory, Chapter IV [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

[Lavengro, p. 204] The work was the set offerred here: Celebrated Trials, and Remarkable Cases of Criminal Jurisprudence, from the earliest records to the year 1825. Borrow, despitesome hesitation enjoyed the project: "Of all my occupations at this period I am free to confess I liked that of compiling the Newgate Lives and Trials the best; that is, after I had surmounted a kind of prejudice which I originally entertained [Lavengro, p. 216] As he said of the various accounts: "What struck me most with respect to these lives was the art which the writers, whoever they were, possessed of telling a plain story. It is no easy thing to tell a story plainly and distinctly by mouth; but to tell one on paper is difficult indeed, so many snares lie in the way. People are afraid to put down what is common on paper, they seek to embellish their narratives, as they think, by philosophic speculations and reflections; they are anxious to shine, and people who are anxious to shine can never tell a plain story." [Lavengro, p. 217] In the Lavengro account, it appears that ironically George Borrow didn't make a profit on the the Celebrated Trials, but only covered his expenses. Additional shipping charge for this heavy multi-volume set. ; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item. It has its own physical history that imbues it with a character lacking in ephemeral electronic renderings. .

        On the Safety Lamp for Preventing Explosions.with some Researches on Flame.

      1825 - Folding frontispiece. Secondedition. 8vo., original blue paper boards, re-backed with new tan paper spine, new printed paper label, new blue paper corners, new endpapers, uncut, housed in a folding box. London, printed for R. Hunter. Inscribed on the front free endpaper 'from the Author', below which in a different hand is signed the name 'James Hudson'. Motivated by a succession of disasters in coal mines Davy, a distinguished chemist and inventor, and others, such as the then unknown George Stephenson, a rival, began to design safety lamps which would be less liable to ignite the flammable gases found in coal mines than the commonly used open flame lamps. This work records Davy's findings and shows illustrations of his method for encasing the flame in an iron or copper wire gauze, which ultimately proved to be too fragile and delivered too little light to be successful. Davy was awarded a baronetcy in 1819, then the highest honour awarded to a scientist, and elected president of the Royal Society in 1820, and despite his important work on the elemental nature of Iodine and Chlorine, claimed his greatest discovery was his assistant Michael Faraday. James Hudson was the Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society under Sir Humphry Davy, and later Secretary of the Royal Agricultural Society in London. He was the son of the farmer of the grounds at Haddon Hall in Derbyshire, who was also the landlord of the Rutland Arms in Bakewell, where later Davy stayed while doing research for his book on fishing 'Salmonia', and where the Bakewell pudding (not 'Tart', that is something else entirely) originated. Leaf B torn, with modern repair, edges of the first gatherings nicked, covers rubbed and soiled. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Eighteen Views taken at & near Rangoon.

      London, Thomas Clay, [1825]. Large Folio. Modern red half morocco over original 19th-century mabled boards; engraved pictorial title (serving as dedication leaf), engraved pictorial subscribers' list with further dedication, 3 lithographic leaves of subscribers, many of which residing in India, 18 magnificent and finely handcoloured aquatint plates; light rubbing to boards; one plate with flawed corner three inches away from printed surface, the initial two leaves with foxing and faint trace of humidity, the plates a little spotted in the margins, images clean and in superb publisher's hand-colouring; provenance: armorial engraved bookplate Newborough inside front cover. First edition, very rare, of this pictorial documentation of the Anglo-Indian capture of Rangoon, as well as presenting the beauty and atmosphere of Burmese scenery, architecture and landscape. The first Anglo-Burmese war of 1824 to 1826 was one of the costliest campaigns ever fought by the Empire. Fifteen thousand British and Indian soldiers, and an unknown, much higher number of Burmese, civilian and soldiers, died, and the finances of the East India Company, to whose directors the work is dedicated, were ruined. The 18 plates are the first large-scale views of Burma, a part of the world pretty unknown to the British. We were unable to find out anything about the clearly very talented artist, Lieutenant Joseph Moore, 89th Foot. - The following year appeared a further series of six views, and there were two text booklets as well. Everything is very rarely found together. Abbey, Travel 404 ('rare work').

        Voyage Autour du Monde Fait par Ordre du Roi, sur les Corvettes de S.M. L'Uranie et la Physicienne, pendant les annees 1817, 1818, 1819 et 1820. Atlas Historique

      Chez Pillet Ainé, Paris 1825 - 10pp. Engraved title page and 112 plates and maps (two folding, forty hand colored). Expertly bound to style in blue-green calf and contemporary green cloth covered boards, flat spine tooled and lettered in gilt The beautifully illustrated Atlas Historique for this important French-sponsored circumnavigation. The Freycinet expedition resulted in a total of four large atlases and nine accompanying volumes of text. "This later circumnavigation by Captain Freycinet was organized by the French government, under the recently restored Bourbon Dynasty, to show the flag around the world and to make scientific observations on geography, magnetism, and meteorology. It was one of the important voyages of exploration of the early nineteenth century. The Uranie sailed from Toulon to Gibraltar, Tenerife, Rio de Janeiro, Cape of Good Hope, Mascarene Islands, Western Australia, Timor, New Guinea, the Mariana Islands, Caroline Islands, Sandwich Islands, New South Wales, New Zealand, Tierra del Fuego, and the Falkland Islands, where the Uranie was shipwrecked in French Bay .The ship's doctors, Quoy and Gaimard, and the pharmacist Gaudichaud served as the naturalists, collected specimens, and published separate volumes on zoology and botany. Freycinet was clandestinely accompanied by his wife, Rose, after whom he named an island in the Samoan chain .The scientific results of Freycinet's explorations in Timor, the islands off New Guinea, the Marianas, and Hawaii were particularly significant and added greatly to the fund of knowledge that the Europeans had of the geography, cultures, and histories of these areas. The writings on the penal colony of Port Jackson, Australia, are of special historic importance" (Hill). The voyage included a one-month visit in the Sandwich Islands, with time spent in Hawaii, Maui, and Oahu, as well as visits to Rio de Janeiro, Cape of Good Hope, Montevideo, Mauritius, New South Wales, and the Caroline Islands. The handsome plates in the atlases, many of which are colored, add greatly to the ethnographic and natural historical aspect of the work. Ferguson 941; Hill 649; Sabin 25916; Forbes 602.

[13] index + c.69 receipes on 33 pages numbered in ink 3 - 36., blank pages numbered 37 - 68, 69-70 "maniere de faire la biere", 71-73 blank, 74- "Maniere de faire la Graine" and "Differentes Qualite des oeufs", 75 with a sheet of paper with recipe pasted in. With two loose manuscript sales receipts dated 1846 and 1870 at rear Recipes in various hands, mainly in ink, some in pencil. Some rubbing to binding. From the Lord Westbury Sale at Sotheby's, part of lot 321. A collection of recipes for patisserie, containing as well a few savory dishes, such as raw marinated fish with olive oil, parsley, nutmeg, salt, pepper and vinegar, pates, and veal ragout. Among the sweet bakery products are several based on recipes from Basle, one mentioning a chef Gaspard Keller from that town, three different preparations of nougat, a recipe for ginger beer, and a pain d'amour. The Pain d'Austerlitz combines amongst other ingredients grated chocolate with lemon zest. The ingredients of the Baton d'Orgeat are reminiscent of those still used in the syrup produced in Italy under the name Orzata. Almonds are highly used, as well as oranges and orange water, lemon zest, and cinnamon. It is intriguing that the longest recipe is that hidden away on pages 69-70 for beer, with the title disguised through the inversion of the word "biere" into mirror writing. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
