        Mémoire sur les intégrales définies, prises entre des limites imaginaires.

      Paris: Chez de Bure Frères, 1825. First edition of this very rare memoir in which "Cauchy began to lay the foundations of the general theory of analytic functions of a complex variable and their integration by residues." (Landmark Writtings in Western Mathematics, ch. 28). "This paper is considered by many as his most important, and one of the most beautiful in the history of science" (Kline, Mathematical Thought from Ancient to Modern Times, p. 637); Cauchy begins the present work by giving a definition of a definite integral for which the limits are complex rather than real numbers, attempting to imitate the definition he had given for real limits in his Résumé des Leçons (1823). This led him to define the integral of a complex function f(z) over an arbitrary path in the complex plane (in modern terminology). The main theorem, which he derived from the Cauchy-Riemann differential equations by means of variational calculus, asserted that in a domain of regularity of f(z) such an integral depended only on the endpoints of the path, and not on the path itself. This is the famous Cauchy integral theorem, the foundation of modern complex function theory. "Cauchy next attacks the problem of what happens when f(z) has a singularity at a point lying between the two paths along which the integral is evaluated... Cauchy deals first with the case where the singularity is a simple pole... he splits f(z) into two parts, one of which is a simple rational expression, reproducing the behaviour of f(z) near the singularity, and the other a well-behaved function, which makes no contribution to the difference between the two integrals... the device of splitting the function in this way appears to come from Ostrogradsky, who had used a similar device in an unpublished paper dated 24 July 1824 and was working closely with Cauchy at the time. Cauchy then goes on to deal with the case where the pole of f(z) between the paths is a multiple one... In every case he concludes that the difference between the integrals is ±2?if0, where f0 is precisely what he was later to call the 'residue' of f(z) at the singularity. "Shortly after proving these results Cauchy suddenly introduces, without any prior warning except a brief mention in his preliminary abstract, some geometrical language in describing his results (art. 9) ... up to this point he had mistrusted its use, feeling that it would tend to disguise the general validity of analytic methods... He seems to feel, indeed, that some of the ideas appearing in the present context can be expressed more concisely by admitting some geometrical terminology" (Landmark Writings, p. 388). The present memoir must be distinguished from Cauchy's Mémoire sur les intégrales définies, submitted to the Académie des Sciences on 22 August 1814 but not published until 1827. The 1814/1827 memoir was an attempt to justify methods that had been used by Euler, Laplace and others to evaluate certain definite integrals, methods which (again in modern terminology) involved shifting the path of integration from the real into the complex domain. Cauchy's main result was a primitive version of the integral theorem which allowed integration only along rectangular paths with sides parallel to the real or imaginary axes, since the limits on the definite integrals he considered were always real numbers. Moreover, the integrands in the 1814/1827 paper were real functions - complex functions had to be dealt with by splitting them into their real and imaginary parts. Finally, geometrical language was nowhere used in the 1814/1827 paper. The present memoir was presented to the Académie on 28 February 1825, in a manuscript which is still preserved in the Académie's pochette for that meeting. It came out in August in a print run of 500 copies. It may be regarded as the herald of his journal Exercices de mathématiques, which began to appear from De Bure in 1826. Over the decades its form of publication made it inaccessible, so that it received a reprint in the Bulletin des Sciences Mathématiques in 1874 (a version which some historians - e.g. Kline - falsely take to be its first publication). (See Grattan-Guinness, Convolutions in French Mathematics 1800-1840, Vol. II. p. 766.) DSB III: 137-9; Grattan-Guinness, Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 1640-1940, Ch. 28 (by F. Smithies); for a very detailed analysis of the work, see Smithies, Cauchy and the Creation of Complex Function Theory, Ch. 4. 4to (247 x 197 mm), contemporary half cloth over marbled boards, manuscript paper label to spine, blind stamp of the Berlin State Library to the front board, rubber stamp of the same to verso of the title, stamped out and sold as a duplicate in 1936, pp. [iv] 68.

        Encyclopédie méthodique. Histoire naturelle: Insectes.

      Paris: Panckoucke, Agasse, 1789-1825. Nine quarto volumes, comprising seven text volumes and two of plates, 397 numbered plates and one bis; bindings a bit scuffed and a few joints starting, lower spine end of two volumes snagged, a good set overall in contemporary quarter roan with red labels. The first major comparative study to illustrate Australian insects. Originally published over a span of almost two decades, this is an important work of entomology. A product of the high enlightenment, the Insectes was originally included within the famous Encyclopédie méthodique, which when complete formed a staggering total of 166 quarto volumes in total (making it a contendor for Diderot's and d'Alembert's Grande Encyclopédie). The breadth of the manifest learning is phenomenal, a testament to spirit of the enlightenment.Although the entomological works of John Lewin and Edward Donovan (both published 1805) have rightly been accorded iconic status in Australian natural history, this work by Olivier has not been given any real attention despite the fact that the first four volumes date from the last decade of the eighteenth century. Scores of Australian insects are illustrated here for the first time - by our count at least 98 are firmly attributed to Australia or Van Diemens Land - most of them by comparison with the originals in the collection of Sir Joseph Banks. A selection of New Zealand bugs and others from Pacific islands also derives from the Banks collection.Olivier built on the work of the scholars of his day, and was particularly reliant on the work of his contemporary Johann C. Fabricius, who printed the earliest textual description of any insects collected on the Endeavour voyage in 1775. Olivier's brief but gracious avertissement in the first volume here suggests that the primary resources for this work were the collections of Linnaeus, the descriptions of Fabricius, and the entomological riches of London. First among equals in London, Olivier notes, is of course Banks, who personally made valuable collections during his voyages around the world with Captain Cook ("La riche collection d'insectes que ce célèbre naturaliste à rapportés de ses voyages autour du globe, avec le Capitaine Cook... "). Not only did Banks himself collect on the voyage, but his interest in insects made Soho Square the paramount collection in London over the succeeding decades, as his friends and colleagues vied for the chance to supply non-descript insects; this is neatly shown by the fact that of the bugs from all parts of the globe, literally hundreds are described from specimens in the Banks collection. Olivier is known to have visited London in 1789, when he visited Banks, but also got in touch with other English collectors including the President of the Linnean Society James Edward Smith, the nurseryman from Hammersmith James Lee, John Latham and Thomas Martyn.Equally significantly, by the publication of the fifth volume (first issued in 1807) many of the new insects being added, including several more Australian specimens, are from the Labillardière collection, and must have been gathered by the famous French natural historian on the d'Entrecasteaux voyage.This work was the magnum opus of the French physician and keen entomologist Guillaume Olivier (1756-1814). Olivier personally collected widely in Europe and Asia Minor, famously embarking on a six-year expedition to Persia, returning to France in 1798. In 1800 he was appointed a Professor of Zoology at the Veterinary School at Alfort. He was a close friend of Fabricius as well as a patron and protector of another entomologist, Pierre André Latreille, at the close of the Napoleonic era. Olivier's own collection is now chiefly at the Muséum national d'histoire naturelle in Paris.Entitlement to print and sell the Encyclopédie méthodique fell to several different publishers, not surprising given the scale of the work and its extended timeframe. The Insectes was earlier published in Paris by Baudoin, Lanneua & Desray between 1789 and 1808 under the sectional title Entomologie ou histoire naturelle des insects. In this set the first four volumes were published by Panckoucke between 1789-1792, the remainder by Agasse and his widow from 1811 to 1818.

        ALCUNI SCRITTI E DETTATI INEDITI DI UGO FOSCOLO.

      Dai Torchi del Majno, 1825. Prima edizione. Cm.18,5x12,6. Pg.64. Coperta muta. Il testo comprende: "Sull'origine e i limiti della giuistizia: Orazione per laurea in legge"; "Lezioni di Eloquenza", articolate in sei Capi: "La Letteratura è annessa alle Facoltà naturali", "Le Facoltà naturali sono annesse allo studio", "Le facoltà naturali, e lo studio nella letteratura sono annessi ai bisogni della Società", "I bisogni della Società dipendenti dalla Letteratura sono annessi alla verità", "La Letteratura è annessa alla Lingua", "La Lingua è annessa allo stile, e lo stile alle facoltà naturali d'ogni individuo"; "Trasunto della Lezione Iª: Dei fondamenti e dei mezzi della Letteratura", artiicolata in Capi: "La Letteratura è annessa alle Facoltà naturali", "Le Facoltà naturali sono annesse allo studio", "Le facoltà naturali e lo studio sono annessi ai bisogni della Società", "I bisogni sono annessi alla verità", "La Letteratura è annessa alla Lingua", "La Lingua è annessa allo stile, e lo stile alle facoltà naturali d'ogni Individuo"; Lezione IIª: "Della Lingua Italiana tanto Storicamente, che Letterariamente", "Secolo XIII, XV, XVI, XVIII". Alquanto rara prima edizione a stampa di un testo che raccoglie alcune lezioni tenute da un Foscolo poco più che trentenne alla Università di Pavia, ove nel 1809 tenne per alcuni mesi la cattedra di Eloquenza. I testi, come segnalato nell'Avvertimento, furono raccolti da un anonimo studenti, e dati qui alle stampe dopo 16 anni, due anni prima della morte del poeta, "Sì perché sappiamo quanto il nome di Foscolo sia caro alla letteratura italiana". "L'orazione fu pronunciata presumibilmente dopo il 6 giugno 1809, quando ormai la cattedra di Eloquenza presso l'Università di Pavia era stata abolita dal governo francese che vedeva con sospetto il poeta e la sua opera poetica, a conclusione del ciclo di lezioni cominciato con "Dell'origine e dell'ufficio della letteratura". "Questa seconda orazione è meno nota della prima, ma non meno significativa per l'importanza che riveste nell'evoluzione delle idee politiche del poeta. Infatti appare evidente come le illusioni libertarie e giacobine della fine del Settecento siano state sostituite da un più meditato realismo politico, segnato in particolare da una pessimistica visione dell'uomo. Una visione che risulta di grande attualità per il lettore moderno, in un'epoca segnata dalla caduta degli ideali e delle ideologie. Un'opera che acquista valore e importanza per il suo significato civile e morale". Certamente questa orazione, come la Lettera apologetica, getta sull'uomo Foscolo una luce molto viva e quasi inaspettata per chi si ferma solo alla lettura della sua poesia" (dal sito classiciitaliani). Parenti, "Prime edizioni", 240. Codice libreria 135865.

        Australian Agricultural Company.

      London: Ruthven and Whitcomb, 1825. Small octavo, 46 pp., mild foxing; very good in recent grey wrappers. Rare pamphlet recording a meeting of Australian Agricultural Company directors at the London Tavern on 21 July 1825.The Australian Agricultural Company was founded by an act of British Parliament in 1824: in return for raising one million pounds in capital, the company was awarded a land grant by the New South Wales government of one million acres. This pamphlet prints the report presented by Company governor John Smith on 21 July 1825, to which is appended Smith's previous report of January that year, and the company plan drafted in November 1824.The scale and optimism of the venture is astonishing - 'there is perhaps, none that holds out the prospect of greater national benefit, or more certain individual emolument, than the plan for extending cultivation, and producing wool of the finest quality, in New South Wales.' This report details the great efforts undertaken in procuring breeding stock, recently dispatched to Australia: 'We have caused the most esteemed of the Merino Flocks in Europe, to be inspected by an intelligent Agent in whom we could rely, assisted by Mr. Dawson; and we have already selected such a number of high bred Rams and Ewes, as will secure to the Company a foundation for their Flocks. For the transport of this... two ships of considerable burthen, the York and Brothers, were chartered, and despatchd from the Isle of Wight in the month of June.'The report discloses new lands discovered in New South Wales by the colonial surveyor John Oxley and his assistants, specifically the Liverpool Plains and good pastures on the Hastings and Hunter's Rivers. We learn that a possible road from the Hunter's River has been surveyed by Oxley's assistant Henry Dangar, and that the warmer climate of the Hastings will allow cultivation of cotton, coffee and sugar.Despite its name, the Company was not limited to agricultural development. We learn that Newcastle coal deposits have been barely scratched by the government using convict labour. However, the coal is 'now ascertained to be of the finest sort; nothing is required but the application of machinery to raise it in abundance, and of excellent quality.' Accordingly, the Company plans to mine and export coal to India, Isle de France and Pacific coast of South America.Of historical interest is the full listing of the directors of the company, a roll call of English venture capitalists alongside men intimately associated with the colony (such as Henry Grey Bennet, John MacArthur and Robert Campbell). The list includes nine members of parliament, the governor of the Bank of England and British East India Company director John Loch. This report also details a glowing letter of support from Sir Thomas Brisbane, who insists the establishment of the Company 'must therefore hail it as the happiest event which could have befallen the Colony.'We can locate only three copies of this pamphlet in Australian public collections, held by the Mitchell, National and Newcastle Regional libraries.

        Rapport fait à l'Académie Royale des Sciences, Sur la partie Zoologique du Voyage autour du Monde...

      Paris: Pillet aîné, 1825. Octavo, 16 pp., quarter calf. Rare report by Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire on the zoological volume of the Freycinet voyage publication, including some personal observations on the mammals of Australia.The Zoologique section of the voyage publication was prepared by Jean René Constant Quoy and Joseph Paul Gaimard, physicians and naturalists accompanying the expedition, and was published in 16 livraisons between 1824 and 1826. In this report, the eminent naturalist and savant critiques the publication, summarising the chapters and adding his own notes and observations. Originally prepared for inclusion in the Revue encyclopédique (1825, volume 26), it was separately printed in this form by the Parisian publishers Pillet to encourage sale of the Zoologique and other upcoming volumes of the Freycinet voyage publication. Effectively it forms a prospectus for the Zoologique, distributed gratis by Pillet to likely buyers.In his report Saint-Hilaire comments on the remarkable mammals of New Holland, including the possum, potoroo and kangaroo, remarking on the remarkable quality and colour of its pelt: '... le kanguroo laineux; cette derniére espèce est surtout très-remarquable par la qualité de son poil, rappelant tout-à-fait celui de la vigogne par la vivacité de sa teinte (le roux ferrugineux), et par sa finesse et son abondance'. Interestingly, Saint-Hilaire also makes a passing reference to Australia's first professional artist John Lewin: 'Cependant peut-être faudra-t-il revenir aux premières vues de M. Lewin dessinateur et graveur sur les lieux mêmes, à Sydney'.Saint-Hilaire was a towering figure of French science, appointed professor of quadrupeds, cetaceans, birds, reptiles and fish at the Musée d'histoire naturelle in 1793 at the young age of twenty-one. He travelled with Napoleon's campaign to Egypt, but it was his long study of the museum's mammalian collection that made him famous, and led to comparisons with Cuvier (although the two men fell out in 1829). During his tenure he published a series of articles and monographs on the platypus.

        Sehr ungewöhnliches, eigenhändiges Schriftstück mit Unterschrift aus den letzten Lebensjahren des Kaisers im französischen Exil. Überschrieben "Institut Stanislas de Cannes. Souvenier du 24. Juilett 1890". Wohl Vorlage eines Beitrags in einer Schulfestschrift (s.u.) für das Bildungsinstitut, seine Enkel wurden dort ausgebildet, mit Aphorismen zu Bildung und Erziehung in 13 verschiedenen Sprachen und Schriften.

      - Doppelblatt auf bräunlichem Papier 17,7 x 11,2 cm (nochmals mittig horizontal gefaltet) - 4 eng beschriebene S. Papier am Rand etwas aufgehellt, drei kleine Randeinrisse (max. 8 mm), Oberrand minimal knittrig. Insgesamt aber wohlerhalten. Sehr außergewöhnliches Autograph. Das Blatt enthält kurze Auszüge aus Texten der Weltliteratur mit Weisheiten aller Zeiten und Völker zur Erziehung in Originalsprache und -schrift(!) von Pedro selbst geschrieben, jeweils mit phonetischer Transkription in lateinischen Lettern und französischer Übersetzung. Zitate aus hebräischen, arabischen, indischen (Sanskrit), persischen (Farsi), altgriechischen, lateinischen, italienischen, portugiesischen, spanischen, französischen, deutschen und englischen Werken sowie einer Weisheit der Guarani-Tupi-Indianer des Amazonas in deren Sprache (in lateinischer Schrift) und einer Aussage "de Mlle Glinka" (Tochter des in Brasilien tätigen russischen Diplomaten Dimitri Glinka), Danach längere Erklärung des Kaisers in Französisch über seine Neigung zu Sprachen und Naturwissenschaften. Darunter Unterschrift "Dom Pedro de Alcantara" sowie folgend längere Aufzählung seiner Mitgliedschaften in den weltweit renommiertesten wissenschaftlichen Gesellschaften. Pedro II. (1825-1891) seit 1831 Kaiser von Brasilien, gehörte zu den fortschrittlichsten Monarchen der Zeit und bescherte dem Land eine lange wirtschaftliche und kulturelle Blüte. Dennoch war er mehr Gelehrter als Politiker und widmete sich in seiner Freizeit den Naturwissenschaften, Künsten und Sprachen, wie vorliegendes Dokument eindrucksvoll belegt. Trotz aller politischen Erfolge wurde er 1889 durch eine republikanische Bewegung gestürzt, durch seine Unterstützung der Sklavenbefreiung hatte er letztlich auch die Großgrundbesitzer gegen die Krone aufgebracht. Die letzten zwei Jahre seines Lebens verbachte er in Frankreich im Exil, wo seine Enkel auf dem o.g. Institut erzogen wurden und für das er eine kleine Jahresfestschrift verfasste. Vorliegendes Autograph war vermutlich die Vorlage dazu. Siehe hierzu ausführlich: Roderick J. Barman, Citizen Emperor. Pedro II and the making of Brazil 1825-91, S. 380: "The only other scholarly activity of note was the production, for distribution at the end-of-the-year ceremonies at his grandsons school, the Collège Stanislas in Cannes of a set of Aphorims on education drawn from the languages that he knew. As his diary entires show, much of the labor in finding these sayings was in reality done by Christian Friedrich Seybold. D. Pedro was not reticent in sharing his achievment with others. He had his set of aphorisms lithographed, and in the followig month he distributed the brochure widely among his friends and fellow members of the five official academies composing the Institut de France[.]" Der genannte Seybold (1859 Waiblingen - 1921 Tübingen) war Orientalist an der Universität Tübingen und 1886-91 Privatsekretär Pedros. Er unterwies diesen u.a. im Arabischen und Sanskrit. Provinienz: zusammen mit einer weiteren sprachwissenschaftlichen, gedruckten Schrift Pedros ehemals im Besitz des Esslinger Industriellen, Eisenbahnpioniers und Reichstagsabgeordneten Emil Kessler jun. (1841-1895), letztere mit eigenhändiger Widmung Seybolds an Kessler. Beide waren möglicherweise Studien- oder Burschenschaftskollegen in Tübingen.

Abbey Life 325. Tooley 504. Prideaux, p. 310. Martin Hardie, pp. 191-92.¶Originally published in 24 monthly parts, The English Spy provides a vivid panorama of English high- and low-life, "a veritable chronique scandaleuse of the time. In the pages of this extraordinary work figure all the notables of the day, either openly or under slight disguise" (Hardie). Described by Prideaux as "perhaps the most daring book ever published," as many of the characters, including Lord Byron, Beau Brummell, Pierce Egan, Pea-green Hayne, Henry Brougham, and the Duke of Wellington, were instantly recognizable to its early readers. Most of the plates are by Robert Cruikshank, who figures in the book under the pseudonym "Robert Transit"; two plates are by Thomas Rowlandson, notably "R.?A.'s [Royal Academicians] of Genius Reflecting on the True Line of Beauty at the Life Academy" (featuring portraits of West, Shee, Haydon, Lawrence, Westmacott and Flaxman); a few others were contributed by G. M. Brighty and T. Wageman. The numerous in-text woodcuts are after Cruikshank, Rowlandson, Gillray and Finlay. The lively text is by the journalist (and blackmailer) C. M. Westmacott, notorious as a muckraker and for extorting large sums of money from victims, including royalty, eager to keep their names out of print. N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.

Octavo, with a frontispiece, four folding maps and two botanical plates at rear; title-page and frontispiece a little browned, some offsetting from the maps yet a fine and very attractive copy in a striking contemporary green polished calf binding, spine with unusual ornate gilt geometric decoration and red morocco labels. An uncommonly good copy in a handsome contemporary binding: one of the more important and interesting works relating to the Macquarie era. This work includes any number of essays on Australia collected during Field's residence in New South Wales from 1817 to 1824, notably the only published account of Oxley's 1823 expedition to survey the Queensland coast, along with a second narrative of the expedition by one of the participants, John Uniacke.Apart from Oxley's account of Moreton Bay, the work has several early expedition journals, notably the only published account of Allan Cunningham's exploration to the Liverpool Plains, Currie's expedition to the southward of Lake George and Field's own journal of his trip across the Blue Mountains.The work is very interesting in terms of Aboriginal history for the inclusion of Oxley's report of the expedition to Moreton Bay which has important notes on the local tribes (including two chapters recounting fights Oxley had witnessed). There is also Barron Field's own meandering essay 'On the Aborigines of New Holland and Van Diemen's Land'.There are also several significant essays on natural history, the best being Cunningham's 'On the Botany of the Blue Mountains', while the botanical plates at the end illustrate four plants including Fieldia Australis (named for Barron Field).The fine frontispiece image is after a drawing by John Lewin, Australia's first professional artist. Interestingly, this work makes a perhaps surprising appearance in Abbey's Travel in Aquatint and Lithography, which is testament to the quality of Lewin's view. Some repairs to spine.

        Trial of Henry Fauntleroy for Forgery, Together with His Execution

      1825. One of the Last People Executed for Forgery in Great Britain [Trial]. Fauntleroy, Henry [1785-1824], Defendant. Trial of Henry Fauntleroy for Forgery, Together with His Execution &c. From a London Copy. New York: Joseph C. Spear, 1825. 36 pp. Octavo (7-1/2" x 4-3/4"). Disbound stab-stitched pamphlet. Light rubbing to extremities, browning to front wrapper, lighter browning and faint dampspotting to text, internally clean. * "Second American edition," actually the second and final edition of an account first published in London in 1824. Fauntleroy was an English banker convicted of forgery. He admitted his guilt, but pleaded that he forged documents in order to access funds to pay his firm's debts. Several bankers and merchants stepped forward to defend his integrity during the trial, but he was sentenced to be hanged. He appealed his case twice without success. Appeals for clemency followed, but they were not successful. He was hanged in November 1824, one of the last people to be executed for forgery before it ceased to be a capital crime in 1836. The London edition is fairly common, the New York edition is rare. OCLC locates 3 copies of this imprint (Library of Congress, New York State Library, Trinity College). Not in Cohen.

In the midst of his busy social calendar, Irving writes his publisher in London, reading (in part): "My dear Sir, My brother will hand you this letter. He is on a tour for his health & may pass a few days in London. … I enclose a draft on Mr. Samuel Williams for fourteen Pounds received from the Messrs. Galignani for the copy of Gambas work …" Irving's Journals for 3 March 1825 note "letters this morn'g to Jones, Sullivan, Murray … Called at Storrow's - drew on Mr. Williams for £200 - drew on him in fav[our] of Murray for fourteen pounds". In January, Irving had been in discussion, on behalf of Murray, with French libraire and publisher Galignani concerning 'A Narrative of Lord Byron's Journey to Greece' by Count Gamba, published by Murray. The book was reprinted by Galignani ("who agrees to give a guinea a sheet for the copy of Gamba's work", 25 January). Irving here conveys the payment to Murray.

        ALCUNI SCRITTI E DETTATI INEDITI DI UGO FOSCOLO.

      Dai Torchi del Majno, Piacenza 1825 - Prima edizione. Cm.18,5x12,6. Pg.64. Coperta muta. Il testo comprende: "Sull'origine e i limiti della giuistizia: Orazione per laurea in legge"; "Lezioni di Eloquenza", articolate in sei Capi: "La Letteratura è annessa alle Facoltà naturali", "Le Facoltà naturali sono annesse allo studio", "Le facoltà naturali, e lo studio nella letteratura sono annessi ai bisogni della Società", "I bisogni della Società dipendenti dalla Letteratura sono annessi alla verità", "La Letteratura è annessa alla Lingua", "La Lingua è annessa allo stile, e lo stile alle facoltà naturali d'ogni individuo"; "Trasunto della Lezione Iª: Dei fondamenti e dei mezzi della Letteratura", artiicolata in Capi: "La Letteratura è annessa alle Facoltà naturali", "Le Facoltà naturali sono annesse allo studio", "Le facoltà naturali e lo studio sono annessi ai bisogni della Società", "I bisogni sono annessi alla verità", "La Letteratura è annessa alla Lingua", "La Lingua è annessa allo stile, e lo stile alle facoltà naturali d'ogni Individuo"; Lezione IIª: "Della Lingua Italiana tanto Storicamente, che Letterariamente", "Secolo XIII, XV, XVI, XVIII". Alquanto rara prima edizione a stampa di un testo che raccoglie alcune lezioni tenute da un Foscolo poco più che trentenne alla Università di Pavia, ove nel 1809 tenne per alcuni mesi la cattedra di Eloquenza. I testi, come segnalato nell'Avvertimento, furono raccolti da un anonimo studenti, e dati qui alle stampe dopo 16 anni, due anni prima della morte del poeta, "Sì perché sappiamo quanto il nome di Foscolo sia caro alla letteratura italiana". "L'orazione fu pronunciata presumibilmente dopo il 6 giugno 1809, quando ormai la cattedra di Eloquenza presso l'Università di Pavia era stata abolita dal governo francese che vedeva con sospetto il poeta e la sua opera poetica, a conclusione del ciclo di lezioni cominciato con "Dell'origine e dell'ufficio della letteratura". "Questa seconda orazione è meno nota della prima, ma non meno significativa per l'importanza che riveste nell'evoluzione delle idee politiche del poeta. Infatti appare evidente come le illusioni libertarie e giacobine della fine del Settecento siano state sostituite da un più meditato realismo politico, segnato in particolare da una pessimistica visione dell'uomo. Una visione che risulta di grande attualità per il lettore moderno, in un'epoca segnata dalla caduta degli ideali e delle ideologie. Un'opera che acquista valore e importanza per il suo significato civile e morale". Certamente questa orazione, come la Lettera apologetica, getta sull'uomo Foscolo una luce molto viva e quasi inaspettata per chi si ferma solo alla lettura della sua poesia" (dal sito classiciitaliani).

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM ANDREW JACKSON IN 1825 TO HENRY BALDWIN, INTRODUCING A PROFESSOR FROM CUMBERLAND COLLEGE].

      Nashville, Tn. April 28, 1825. - [1]p., on a bifolium, with integral address leaf. Quarto. Previously folded, with several small separation and closed tears along old fold lines. Repaired tear in lower corner of manuscript leaf, not affecting text. Small blank area broken away from lower edge. Tanned. Good. A letter of introduction written by Andrew Jackson at the Hermitage to Henry Baldwin for Harvey Lindsley, a professor at Cumberland College (now the University of Nashville). Baldwin was a close political ally and friend to Jackson; when Jackson was elected President, he appointed Baldwin to the Supreme Court in 1830, where he wrote the dissenting opinion in the landmark case Worcester v. Georgia, wherein John Marshall established the legal principle that the federal government was the sole power to deal with Native American tribes, of which Jackson is famously supposed to have said, "John Marshall has made his decision; now let him enforce it." The letter reads as follows: "Allow me to present to your friendly notice the bearer Mr. Lindsly, one of the professors of Cumberland College, and a brother of the president of that institution. Mr. L is about to undertake a tour to your section of country and will perhaps rest awhile at or near Pittsburgh. He has been highly recommended to me as a very worthy young man. As such I present him to you and will be thankfull [sic] for any attention which you may be pleased to bestow upon him." A nice piece of Jackson, addressed to an significant political colleague.

        The Magic Ring; a romance, from the German of Frederick, Baron de La Motte Fouqué.

      Edinburgh: by Oliver & Boyd; and Geo. B. Whittaker, 1825 - 3 volumes, 12mo (176 × 104 mm). 19th-century half Japanese vellum, double morocco labels, gilt spines, red sides, endpapers and edges. Rubbed, a little light foxing, chiefly to outer leaves, a good set. With the half-titles. Bookplates of A. J. A. Symons. First edition in English of Der Zauberring (1813), translated by Scott's friend Robert Pearse Gillies. The novel blends medieval quest, epic fantasy and Gothic nightmare, inspired by Germanic folk tales and Icelandic sagas, Arthurian romance and Gothic horror. The book is a clear precursor to William Morris's medieval romances, George Macdonald's spiritual fantasies, and to Wagner's Ring of the Nibelung. Macdonald and Morris are both acknowledged influences on Tolkien, and it has been argued that Tolkien's distaste for Wagner and what his work represented led him to write The Lord of the Rings as a cultural antidote to Wagner. The book is scarce in commerce, no copy having appeared at auction for 15 years. This copy from the library of the book collector and writer A. J. A. Symons, author of The Quest for Corvo.

(Reliure de l'époque). Édition originale de ce traité classique sur les matériaux de construction. Portrait lithographié d'après Boilly. J.-H. Hassenfratz, né en 1755, était le fils aîné d'une famille de taverniers de Montmartre. Après une formation de charpentier, il étudia la sidérurgie et l'exploitation des mines en Europe Centrale. Il fut l'élève de Monge puis dirigea quelque temps le laboratoire de Lavoisier. Hassenfratz eut aussi une carrière politique : membre du club des Jacobins, membre de la Commune à deux reprises, il se réfugia ensuite à Sedan pour échapper aux Thermidoriens. A la fin de sa vie, il enseignait à Polytechnique et à l'École des Mines. Il publia d'ailleurs cet ouvrage à un âge avancé. Il rappelle dans sa préface les différentes étapes des expériences sur la chaux et égratigne au passage son ancien élève Vicat. - (D.S.B.
