      Corby, Paris, France 1826 - small 8vo. contemporary quarter leather, marbled paper-covered boards, five false raised bands. (iv),xii,528; (iv),529-1127 pages, with one foldout. 2 Volumes. First edition (Bigmore & Wyman, II-201). Licensing, copyright, censorship, the "public order," and so on. The years following the end of the Napoleonic Wars were generally not a good time in Europe for promoting freedom of the press, and printers, booksellers and others undoubtedly had need of such books as this compilation by the jurist F.A. Pic in order to know what they could and couldn't do. In four main parts: Laws prior to 1789, newer laws pertaining to printing and bookselling, newer laws concerning the press and "other means of publication," and the texts of "dispositions législatives" for bookselling, printing and freedom of the press together with selections from legislative reports and discussions relative to the passage of nine specific laws from 1814 to 1822. Since these nine laws dealt largely with freedom of the press (or its suppression), persons interested in censorship in the 19th century will find this interesting. The texts and discussions for laws actually comprise over two-thirds of the book. The foldout is a table on laws relating to export and import of books. Covers rubbed and scuffed, mostly at edges. Light foxing scattered through text. contemporary quarter leather, marbled paper-covered boards, five false raised bands [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Bestimmung des Gesetzes.

      Expedition des Vereins, Halle 1826 - Announcing a Comprehensive Law for Electric CurrentOhm, Georg Simon (1789-1854). Bestimmung des Gesetzes, nach welchem Metalle die Contaktelectricitat leiten, nebst einem Entwurf zu einer Theorie des Voltaischen Apparates und des Schweiggerschen Multiplicators. In Jahrb. d. Chemie u. Physik 16 (1826): 137-66, plus plate figures 1-2 on plate III. Whole volume, 8vo. xvi, 496pp.2 folding printed charts, 3 folding engraved plates. Halle: In der Expedition des Vereins zur Verbreitung von Naturkenntniss, 1826. 201 x 122 mm. Half sheep c. 1826, a bit rubbed, light wear to corners & edges. Minor foxing, otherwise very good. First Edition. Ohm began publishing his electricity researches in 1825 with his "Vorlaufige Anzeige des Gesetzes, nach welchem Metalle die Contaktelektricitat leiten," a paper in which he sought to find a functional relationship between the decrease in the electromagnetic force exerted by a current-carrying wire and the length of the wire. Although this paper contained some fundamental errors, it was remarkable for its direct foundation on experiment, a characteristic of all Ohm's early papers. In February and April of the following year Ohm published two important papers dealing separately with the two major aspects of his theory of galvanic electricity, which he would later unify in his landmark Die galvanische Kette (1827). The first paper, which we are offering here, "announced a comprehensive law for electric current that brought order into the hitherto confused collection of phenomena pertaining to the closed circuit, including the solution to the problem of conductibility as he and others had conceived of it" (DSB). Ohm's second paper, "Versuch einer Theorie der durch galvanische Krafte hervorgebrachten elektroskopischen Erscheinungen" (Ann. Phys. 6 [1826]: 459-69; 7, 45-54, 117-18), "broke new ground in associating an electric tension with both open and closed galvanic circuits" (DSB), and contained the first statement of Ohm's Law. "Ohm's experimental procedure in ["Bestimmung des Gesetzes"] was analogous to that which he had used earlier but was modified in several significant ways. First, at Poggendorff's suggestion, he now used a thermoelectric pile in order to eliminate the fluctuations in current strength accompanying the voltaic pile, fluctuations that Ohm attributed to changes produced by the current in the distribution (Vertheilung) of the components in the liquid conductor. Second, he sought a direct relationship between the electromagnetic force of the current and the entire length of the connecting wire. . . . "[I]n the paper in question Ohm simply observed that the data from each of his several sets of experiments were very closely represented by the formula X = a/(b + x), where X is the strength of the electromagnetic effect-which he took as a measure of the electric current-of a conductor of length x on the magnetic needle of a Coulomb torsion balance, and where a and b are constants the exact nature of which he proposed to determine from additional series of carefully controlled experiments. The observation that b remained constant for all series of experiments, whereas a varied with temperature, led Ohm to conclude that a depended solely on the electromotive force (erregende Kraft) of the pile and b solely on the resistance (Leitungswiderstand or, more commonly, Widerstandslange) of the remaining portion of the circuit, in particular that of the pile itself. He also observed that the electromotive force of the thermoelectric pile appeared to be exactly proportional to the temperature difference at its end points. . . . " "After reconfirming the validity of his law by further series of experiments, Ohm exhibited its explanatory powers on some of the chief unsolved problems which had occupied scientists working on the pile; and he showed how it also cast light on a number of other previously reported but poorly understood experimental findings. . . . The fruitful application of Ohm's simple l [Attributes: First Edition]

        The Lives of the Right Honourable Francis North,

      London - Henry Colburn, 1826. London - Henry Colburn, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A relatively scarce three volume edition of the Lives of Francis North, Sir Dudley North and Dr. John North, written by Roger North. Illustrated with three frontispiece plates,a portrait of Francis North tofirst volume and of Sir Dudley North to second volume and Roger North tothird volume. A new edition with notes and illustrations, historical and biographical. In three volumes complete. Francis North, 1st Baron Guilford PC KC (1637 - 1685) was the third son of the 4th Baron North, and was created Baron Guilford in 1683, after becoming Lord Keeper of the Great Seal in succession to Lord Nottingham. He had been an eminent lawyer, Solicitor-General (1671), Attorney-General (1673), and Chief Justice of the Common Pleas (1675), and in 1679 was made a member of the Council of Thirty and on its dissolution of the Cabinet. He was a man of wide culture and a staunch royalist. Dudley North, 4th Baron North K. B. (1602 - 1677) was an English politician who sat in the House of Commons at various times between 1628 and 1660. North was an accomplished man, of studious bent, and wrote on economics and religious subjects. John North (1645 - 1683) was professor of Greek at the University of Cambridge from 1672 to 1674, and Master of Trinity College, Cambridge from 1677 to 1683. Made Clerk of the Closet in 1673, he was a prebend of Westminster from 1673 to 1683 and chaplain to the King from 1676 to 1683. He was Master of Trinity from 1677 to 1683. With plate for 'Earl of Guildford, Wroxton Abbey'tipped in to front pastedown and previous owner's ink inscription dated 1929also stating 'Wroxton Abbey' to front blank to first volume. Wroxton Abbey is a Jacobean house in Oxfordshire,named for its 12th-century origins as a monastery that fell into disrepair after Henry VIII's 1536 dissolution. Remnants of that structure remain in the basement beams, though the building literally rose from the ruins when rebuilt by William Pope in the early 17th century and added to for several centuries after that as the property passed from the Popes to the Norths in 1677. Condition: In calf bindings. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities, fading, rubbing and marks to boards, loss to somespine labels, absent to third volume,and backstrips lifting slightly in places. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean throughout but with the occasional handling mark and slight foxing to plates. Overall: GOOD.

      London: Baldwin & Cradock. London: Baldwin & Cradock. unbound. Map. Engraving with hand outline coloring. Image measures 15.5 x 24.5". This fine town plan offers an incredibly detailed look at mid-19th century London. The river Thames snakes along the lower half of the map, and the city's streets and railroads extend out from it. Major roads are colored yellow, water is blue, and parks are rendered in green. Two insets in the upper right below the title offer views of the London Tower from London Bridge and of the city skyline from Copenhagen Fields. Below the map are views of the facades of 25 structures in the city, titled as "A comparison of the principal buildings of London." This plan, a beloved example of S.D.U.K's work, is particularly interesting because London was the home base of the house's prolific production. The map is in good condition with original folds as issued. Narrow margins as is common with these maps. Overall toning but no significant chips or creases. The Society for the Diffusion of Useful Knowledge, or SDUK, was formed in 1826 and published low cost maps with the goal of reaching a large market while still maintaining high quality and precision. This fine map exemplifies its work.

        Bibliotheca Classica

      London - T. Cadell, 1826. London - T. Cadell, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce classical dictionary from the early nineteenth century by John Lempriere. John Lemprire (c. 1765, Jersey, February 1, 1824, London) was English classical scholar, lexicographer, theologian, teacher and headmaster. He achieved renown for his Bibliotheca Classica or Classical Dictionary containing a full Account of all the Proper Names mentioned in Ancient Authors, (Reading, November, 1788), which, edited by various later scholars, long remained a readable reference book in mythology and classical history. Lemprire wished to give the most accurate and satisfactory account of all the proper names which occur in reading the Classics, and by a judicious collection of anecdotes and historical facts to draw a picture of ancient times, not less instructive than entertaining. (Lemprire, Preface, 1788). It has been a handbook for teachers, journalists, dramatists and poets for almost two hundred years and John Keats is said to have known the book almost by heart. Far from being just an ordinary dictionary, however, Lemprire's encyclopedic work is full of incidental details and stories which bring the mythical past to life. Condition: Rebound in a cloth binding. Externally, very smart, with just some minor shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Title page missing. Ink signature to endpapers. Pages are mainly bright and clean, with just some foxing and handling marks to the first few pages. Overall:GOOD..

        The Last of the Lairds: or, the Life and Opinions of Malachi Mailings, esq. of Auldbiggings

      Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and T. Cadell, 1826. Edinburgh and London - William Blackwood and T. Cadell, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Adrily amusingScottish social commentarynovel by JohnGalt. First Edition. John Galt (2 May 1779 11 April 1839) was a Scottish novelist, entrepreneur, and political and social commenter. Galt at first directed his ambitions mainly to commerce, but many of his ventures failed. Galt was back in London by 1811 and in the following year the first of his books were published: Life of Cardinal Wolsey, Voyages and Travels, and a collection of plays in blank verse. He was sent by a merchant in Glasgow to open a branch in Gibraltar, but within a year he had to return to London for surgery. Since all his business ventures had come to nothing, he decided to try to earn his living by his pen. He also accepted appointment as what should now be called a lobbyist on behalf of the company promoting the Union Canal between Edinburgh and Glasgow. This gave the familiarity with Westminster and Whitehall which was the basis subsequently both of his involvement in Canadian affairs and of his political novels. In spite of the success of his novels Galt had not abandoned his ambitions in other directions. His parliamentary lobbying experience and his childhood interest in Canada came together in his next venture. Canadians who had suffered losses when the United States invaded in 1812 had been trying in vain to extract compensation from the British government. In 1820 Galt had agreed to act on their behalf, but after two years of effort the government still evaded payment. He then produced another scheme, a proposal for a company to raise capital for the development and settlement of land in Ontario. This could earn revenue which could be used to meet the claims. The company was formed in 1824 with Galt as secretary. He sailed to Canada in 1826 to direct operations there, leaving with Blackwood another novel in his best manner, The Last of the Lairds.

      Paris, Kilian 1826 - In-8. Collation : 10, 381, (2) pp. Demi-chagrin rouge, dos orné, armes dorées au centre des plats. (Reliure de l'époque.) Première édition. Le Prince de Condé demanda à Catherine II de Russie un asile pour son armée. En janvier 1793, l'impératrice proposa aux émigrés français, un établissement sur la mer d'Azof, dans le cas ou la République française se consoliderait. Cette colonie aurait eu le Prince de Condé pour chef. Le projet n'aboutit pas, mais le Comte de Castries, Maréchal de camp, participa à un voyage préparatoire, qu'il relate ici. Avec un fac similé hors-texte d'une lettre du Prince de Condé. Exemplaire aux armes de l'impératrice Marie-Louise (1791-1847). Fille aînée de l'empereur François Ier d'Autriche, elle épousa en 1809 Napoléon Ier. Quand celui-ci est vaincu par la sixième coalition, Marie-Louise décida de ne pas le suivre dans son exil à l'île d'Elbe, et rentra avec son fils à la cour de Vienne. Le congrès de Vienne lui accorda, en 1815, les Duchés de Parme, Plaisance et Guastalla. Elle n'avait alors que 24 ans. Très bel exemplaire. // You can browse all my books on

        A Summary of the Principal Evidences for the Truth and Divine Origin of the Christian Revelation

      London - T. Cadell, 1826. London - T. Cadell, 1826 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A Christian essay intended for the instruction of young people following their confirmation. Beilby Porteus (1731 1809), successively Bishop of Chester and of London was an Anglican reformer and leading abolitionist in England. He was the first Anglican in a position of authority to seriously challenge the Church's position on slavery. Hewas one of the most significant, albeit underrated church figures of the eighteenth century. His sermons continued to be read by many, and his legacy as a foremost abolitionist was such that his name was almost as well-known in the early nineteenth century as those of Wilberforce and Thomas Clarkson but a hundred years later he had become one of the forgotten abolitionists, and today his role has largely been ignored and his name has been consigned to the footnotes of history. His primary claim to fame in the twenty-first century is for his poem on Death and, possibly unfairly, as the supposed prototype for the pompous Mr Collins in Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice. Condition: In a half-morocco binding with marbled boards. Externally smart, with just some marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, with just the odd spot. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..
