        "Le voyage à Louvain' Manuscrit autographe de Jacotot

      In-4° relié demi-chagrin grenat de l'époque, dos orné à froid, 200 pages circa manuscrites. Le voyage à Louvain est la relation d'une visite du Général Despans de Culière à Jacotot, alors professeur à Louvain. Le manuscrit est consacré à l'analyse et au développement de sa méthode d'éducation "l'enseignement Universel" Jean Joseph Jacotot, né à Dijon en 1770, mort à Paris en 1840, est un pédagogue français, créateur d'une méthode d'enseignement, dite « méthode Jacotot ». Jacotot fait ses études secondaires au lycée de Dijon où il est un étudiant travailleur et intelligent, mais peu disposé à accepter ce qui ne lui parait pas évident et ne repose que sur l'autorité de la parole du maître, laquelle a pour lui simple valeur d'opinion. Esprit indépendant, perspicace, épris de discerner le vrai au milieu de tout ce qui a la prétention de l'être, il est docteur ès lettres et professeur d'Humanités à dix-neuf ans. Ses anciens maîtres devenus ses collègues, frappés de la fermeté et de la droiture de son caractère, lui confient leurs intérêts. Afin de justifier la confiance dont on l'honore, il étudie le droit et devient avocat et docteur en droit. Puis il entreprend des études approfondies de mathématiques et obtient un troisième doctorat. Professeur, il est aussi patriote, attaché à la liberté qui implique l'émancipation politique autant que l'émancipation intellectuelle. En 1788, il organise la fédération de la jeunesse Dijonnaise avec celle de Bretagne et d'autres provinces, pour la défense des principes révolutionnaires Ces principes étant acquis, les fédérations en viennent à se transformer en bataillons pour la défense de la patrie. Il est élu capitaine d'une compagnie d'artillerie du bataillon de la Côte d'Or. En 1792, Sa compagnie demande à aller combattre l'ennemi ; le ministre de la guerre l'envoie en renfort à l'Armée du Nord. Elle prend part à la courte campagne de Belgique, assiste au siège de Maastricht, à plusieurs autres faits d'armes où Joseph Jacotot paie de sa personne et se montre aussi prudent que brave. En 1795, il devient professeur à l'école centrale de Dijon où il enseigne successivement le latin, les mathématiques et le droit. Il devient sous l'Empire, secrétaire du ministre de la guerre, puis sous-directeur de l'École Polytechnique ; pendant les Cent-Jours, il est élu membre de la Chambre des Représentants. Il quitte la France lors de la Seconde Restauration et se retire en Belgique. Il y est nommé professeur de littérature française à l'Université d'État de Louvain, puis directeur de l'École militaire. Il ne rentre en France qu'en 1830 après la révolution de juillet, se fixant quelques années à Valenciennes, avant de s'établir à Paris en 1838 où il meurt deux ans plus tard. Il est inhumé au cimetière du Père-Lachaise (49e division) et embaumé par le docteur Gannal, suivant le procédé de celui-ci. À Louvain, chargé d'enseigner le français à des étudiants dont il ne comprend pas la langue, il leur demande d'étudier une édition bilingue du Télémaque de Fénelon. Par l'étude du texte et de sa traduction, et sans explications du maître, les étudiants se révèlent capables d'appréhender le fonctionnement de la phrase en français et de raconter en français ce qu'ils ont compris du roman. Cette expérience conduit Jacotot à proposer une méthode d'enseignement qui s'oppose à la méthode classique en ce qu'elle repose sur la révélation de la capacité d'apprendre par lui-même à l'individu plutôt qu'au transfert du savoir du maître à l'étudiant. L'annonce de sa nouvelle méthode d'« enseignement universel » par laquelle il se propose d'« émanciper les intelligences » attire sur lui l'attention à partir de 1818 Très bon couverture rigide Edition originale Signé par l'auteur

        Grundlagen für eine allgemeine Theorie der Functionen einer veränderlichen complexen Grösse. Eine Abhandlung, zu deren öffentlicher Vertheidigung behuf Erlangung der Doctorwürde der Verfasser bereit sein wird am 16. December 1851.Göttingen: E. A. Huth, 1851.

      First edition of Riemann's <i>Dissertation</i>, "one of the most important achievements of 19th century mathematics" (Laugwitz), "which marked a new era in the development of the theory of analytic functions" (Kolmogorov & Yushkevich, p. 199), introducing geometric and topological methods, notably the idea of a 'Riemann surface'. "Riemann's doctoral thesis is, in short, a masterpiece" (Derbyshire, p. 121). It is also of great rarity, for "although [it] was a printed booklet, it was not usually published or publicised in the normal way; the candidate had to pay for the print-run, and sales and marketing were executed on an infinitesimal scale. So the first printing of Riemann's thesis consisted only of the obligatory copies he had to hand in at Göttingen University, and a few copies for his personal use" <i>Landmarks in Western Mathematics</i>, no. 34). The present copy is evidently one of those handed to the University.<br/><br/> Riemann begins his thesis by offering a new foundation for the theory of analytic functions, based not on analytic expressions but on the assumption that the complex function <i>w = u + iv</i> of the complex variable <i>z = x + iy</i> is 'differentiable'. Riemann noted that this condition is equivalent to requiring that <i>u</i> and <i>v</i> satisfy the 'Cauchy-Riemann equations' (as they are now called), and that, when the derivative is non-zero, it is also equivalent to requiring that the function determines a conformal mapping from the <i>z</i>-plane to the <i>w</i>-plane. At this point he refers to Gauss's work on conformal mapping, published in 1825 in Schumacher's <i>Astronomische Abhandlungen</i>, which he had studied in Berlin (this is the only reference in the thesis to the work of others). <br/><br/> In order to deal with multi-valued functions such as algebraic functions and their integrals, Riemann introduced the surfaces now named after him: the Riemann surface associated with a function is composed of as many sheets as there are branches of the function, connected in a particular way so that continuity is preserved and a single-valued function on the surface is obtained. Such a surface can be represented on a plane by a series of 'cross-cuts', which divide the surface into simply-connected regions. "Riemann's thesis studied the theory of complex variables and, in particular, what we now call Riemann surfaces. It therefore introduced topological methods into complex function theory... Riemann's thesis is a strikingly original piece of work which examined geometric properties of analytic functions, conformal mappings and the connectivity of surfaces" (Mactutor). <br/><br/> The rest of the thesis is devoted to the study of functions on Riemann surfaces. From the Cauchy-Riemann equations it follows that if <i>w = u + iv</i> is an analytic function, then <i>u</i> and <i>v</i> are harmonic functions, i.e. solutions of Laplace's equation. This establishes a link between the theory of analytic functions and potential theory, a subject with which Riemann was familiar, having attended Gauss and Weber's Göttingen seminar on mathematical physics (Gauss himself had made a decisive contribution to potential theory in 1849). Riemann's approach in the remainder of the thesis was deeply influenced by potential theory. <br/><br/> To construct harmonic functions such as <i>u</i> and <i>v</i>, Riemann began with the case of a simply-connected region and made use of what he called 'Dirichlet's principle (he had learned it from Dirichlet's lectures in Berlin): this asserts that the harmonic functions are exactly those which minimize the value of a certain integral. He then extended this to the non-simply connected case using cross-cuts and other variants. This approach was later to prove controversial, as Weierstrass gave examples of situations in which the minimizing function does not exist, but it was rehabilitated by Hilbert early in the next century. <br/><br/> The crowning glory of the thesis, and the most difficult part of the theory of conformal mappings, is his celebrated mapping theorem. "As an application of his approach he gave a 'worked-out example', showing that two simply-connected plane surfaces can always be made to correspond in such a way that each point of one corresponds continuously with its image in the other, and so that corresponding parts are 'similar in the small', or conformal ... what is nowadays called the 'Riemann mapping theorem'." (<i>Landmarks</i>, p. 454). <br/><br/> According to Richard Dedekind (<i>Bernhard Riemann's Lebenslauf</i>, p. 7), Riemann probably conceived the main ideas of the thesis in autumn 1847. It was submitted on 14 November, 1851 and the Dean of the Faculty asked Gauss for his opinion. Always sparing with his praise, Gauss nevertheless wrote: "The paper submitted by Mr Riemann bears conclusive evidence of the profound and penetrating studies of the author in the area to which the topic dealt with belongs" (quoted from R. Remmert, "From Riemann surfaces to complex spaces", <i>Bull. Soc. Math. France</i> (1998), p. 207). Following the thesis examination on 16 December, 1851, Riemann was awarded his <i>Doctor Philosophiae</i> and Gauss recommended that he be formally appointed to a position at Göttingen. <br/><br/> I.

      Paris, Levrault, 1825-27. 2 volumes. Royal-8vo. pp. viii, 664, with 2 folded tables and 109 engraved plates. Recent green calf, richly gilt decorated spines, with 4 raised bands, gilt borderlines on covers. Nissen ZBI, 391. "De Blainville's definition of 'malacologie', however, was scarcely an improvement because it signified the study of all soft-bodied creatures. That he did not intend the term to encompass all aspects of the study of the molluscs is suggested by the full title of his book, 'Manuel de malacologie et de conchyliologie', and by its contents which include a chapter on the history of 'malacologie' and another on the history of 'conchyliologie' (Dance p. 199). The fine plates are after drawings by Prêtre and Turpin, the best French natural history artists of the period. A fine copy.

        The Young Artists Companion or, Drawing-book of Studies

      London: S&J Fuller, 1825 The Young Artist&#39;s Companion or, Drawing-book of Studies and Landscape Embellishments: Comprising a Great Variety of the Most Picturesque Objects Required in Various Compositions of Landscape Scenery Arranged as Progressive Lessons. In modern hal brown leather with marbled boards, gilt tooling, original title label with gilt lettering and tooling to front center. Spine has gilt tooling, no title. Internally, new endpapers, bookplate to fpd, coloured frontis a little chipped at edges, [3], 4-6 pp, 40 plates, 7-10 pp, 12 plates, 11-15 pp, 12 plates. Some of the plates have 4 images but mostly 1, the last 12 are all in full colour and stunning!, plates are dated between Oct. 1st. 1819 and June 1823. Some foxing and minor browning throughout, as is normal. A great book just to sit and look at. Cox, landscape painter, whose standing as a drawing-master was reinforced by the publication of a number of successful manuals, beginning with Ackermann&#39;s New Drawing Book in Light and Shadow in 1809: although not credited to Cox, its range of subjects&mdash;Birmingham, Wales, and London&mdash;strongly suggests that he supplied the images, if not the text. This was soon followed by A Series of Progressive Lessons Intended to Elucidate the Art of Painting in Water Colours, a hugely popular step-by-step drawing manual which was first published in 1811, and reached its ninth edition in 1845. A Treatise on Landscape Painting and Effect in Water Colours (1813&ndash;14, reissued 1840) cemented Cox&#39;s reputation, and was followed by The Young Artist&#39;s Companion (1819&ndash;20, revised 1825) See ODNB for a full Bio.

A few instances of dried plant matter laid in, including three four-leaf clovers. Occasional spots of minor foxing; one small ink stain affecting two leaves but not obscuring text.

All edges gilt, and gauffered at corners and at the spine. Pastedowns of light blue and red paste-paper.The binding is highly reminiscent of a "peasant" binding, but clearly is not one as these are generally understood: It is not vellum, not embossed; but yes, it is definitely handpainted and folk-art inspired. => A variant.

        Observations on Penal Jurisprudence...Part III

Light foxing in a few places, interior otherwise fresh. * Only edition. The early nineteenth century was a watershed period in the history of penology. Many important contributions were made at this time by such luminaries as Bentham, Lieber, Livingston and Tocqueville. Roscoe's work was equally important. Believing that retribution should play no part in criminal jurisprudence, he advocated milder punishments, believing they would reform the criminal. He outlined these ideas in Observations on Penal Jurisprudence, And the Reformation of Criminals (1819). He elaborated them, and responded to critics, in two later volumes: Further Observations on Penal Reform (1823) and Observations on Penal Jurisprudence...Part III (1825). Verplanck [1786-1870] was a prominent member of the New York Bar and an important reformer. He served four terms in the U.S. Congress, where he was chairman of the Ways and Means committee. OCLC locates 3 individual copies and 9 copies bound with Roscoe's other volumes. Not in Sweet & Maxwell. British Museum Catalogue (Compact Edition) 21:1106.

        THE WORKS OF SAMUEL JOHNSON, LL.D. [with] BOSWELL, JAMES. LIFE OF JOHNSON

      Oxford: Printed for William Pickering, London; and Talboys and Wheeler, Oxford, 1825. Hardcover. In Extraordinarily Handsome Ornate Morocco, andUnusual with Both Johnson&#39;s Works and Boswell&#39;s Life. 251 x 152 mm (9 7/8 x 6"). 15 volumes. Edited by Francis Pearson Walesby. VERY HANDSOME MID-19TH CENTURY MAROON PEBBLE-GRAIN MOROCCO, LAVISHLY GILT, covers with an intricate frame comprised of three blind and six gilt fillets, the latter flanking an elegant string of gilt floral sprays, mandorlas, coils, and rosette cornerpieces, the large central panel further defined by ornmental cornerpieces connected by a gilt rule; spines lavishly gilt in compartments with central floral bouquet surrounded by swirling vines, leaves, and many small tools, turn-ins with triple gilt fillet, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With frontispiece portraits of Johnson and Boswell and three folding facsimiles of Johnson&#39;s writing. A Large Paper Copy. "Works": Courtney & Smith, pp. 166-67; Fleeman 87.3W/22a (vols. I-IX) and 87.3W/1.2/1a (vols. X-XI); Keynes, p. 62; Brunet III, 551; Graesse III, 471; Lowndes II, 1217-18. "Life": Keynes, p. 43; Pottle 90. Just a hint of rubbing to extremities, but the remarkably pleasing bindings essentially unworn and extremely lustrous. Two leaves with small closed tears, perhaps half a dozen pages per volume with a pinpoint fox mark in the margin, one page with a small stain, but a beautiful copy internally, unusually clean, fresh, and smooth, and with expansive margins. AN ESPECIALLY ATTRACTIVE SET. Although William Pickering began his legendary publishing career in 1820, it wasn&#39;t until 1825, after a move to larger premises, that he began to produce substantial numbers of high quality editions. In the latter year, Pickering began his association with the Oxford firm of Talboys and Wheeler, and with this association began the series of books known collectively as the Oxford English Classics. According to Keynes, "these handsome volumes were produced at the printing offices of the Oxford partners, but their general design shows clear signs of Pickering&#39;s predominating influence. The books are large octavos, well printed on ribbed paper with a fine Oxford device on the title pages." Keynes says that our 11-volume edition of Johnson and the four-volume Boswell&#39;s Johnson issued in 1826 "are the most valuable of the series," and singles out this edition of the "Life" for "special merit." Brunet calls the collection of Johnson&#39;s works "one of the best, and the most complete to this time." Our Large Paper Copy has stately margins that complement the luxurious bindings, pleasing to the eye and to the touch. The editor, Francis Pearson Walesby (1798-1858), was an Oxford professor. Although the title page of the first volume announces that the set will consist of nine volumes, a 10th and 11th were added, of "Parliamentary Debates." These are Parliamentary reports which Johnson began to make at the age of 32 for the "Gentleman&#39;s Magazine.".
