        Carta esferica del Rio de la Plata en la America del Sur, levantada por Don Andres Oyarvide

      , 1826. Amongst the rarest charts of the River Plate, by the most important cartographer in Buenos Aires. c.1826. Buenos Aires. 1040 mm x 810 mm. Recently mounted on linen, foxing to folds mainly.A rare map of the Rio de la Plata, wonderfully engraved by Besnes Irigoyen. Aizpurua (1774 ? 1833) was a Spanish navy officer and pilot; he moved to Buenos Aires at a young age, the city still being the seat of the Viceroyalty of La Plata. Once there he was appointed as pilot of the Bergatin Tigre and began his cartographic activities mapping the region. During the wars of independence he sided with the revolutionaries and stayed in Buenos Aires; his knowledge of the region ?he having mapped a large portion of it- and his understanding of hydrographical reality and navigation of the River Plate granted him the commission from Brown as Chief Pilot of the argentine fleet during the war against Brazil. For a river such as the Plata, said knowledge may be decisive in the outcome of the engagement. His charts, under the recommendation of Brown himself, were acquired by the Nation and compiled into one chart ?this one- by Andres Oyarbide. The map includes two cartouches and inset maps of the Port of Montevideo and Maldonado, as well as coastal profiles; historical explanation of the "Derrota de Montevideo a Buenos Ayres por el N. Del Banco Chico" and "Derrotas por el S. del Banco Chico, o Costa del sur". It was drawn by Manuel Besnes e Irigoyen (1789 ? 1865), a celebrated Uruguayan painter, which accounts for its artistic beauty.

        GASTON DE BLONDEVILLE

      1826. or The Court of Henry III. Keeping Festival in Ardenne. A Romance. ST. ALBAN'S ABBEY, A Metrical Tale; with Some Poetical Pieces. To Which is Prefixed A Memoir of the Author, with extracts from her journals. In Four Volumes. London: Henry Colburn, 1826. 1 leaf undated ads in Vols I and IV. Original light brown paper-covered boards with printed labels. First Edition of this novel by the writer who is considered one of the founders of Gothic literature, best-known for her THE MYSTERIES OF UDOLPHO (1794). Anne Radcliffe became immensely popular from her first five Gothic novels, but then after writing this sixth one she stopped writing and became a recluse (so much so that some decades later, Christina Rossetti planned a biography of her, only to give up after deciding that not enough about her life could be found). In this tale (written in 1802 but not published until 1826, three years after the author's death), the title character's wedding is interrupted by a man claiming that the groom-to-be murdered a family-member; a trial ensues, some want the truth suppressed, ghosts intervene... Often compared to Matthew Gregory Lewis and his Gothic tale THE MONK, she ultimately pointed out that while he was going for an atmosphere of horror, she was aiming for an atmosphere of terror.~"Gaston de Blondeville" occupies Vols I and II and into Vol III; "St. Alban's Abbey" the rest of Vol III into Vol IV; and "Some Poetical Pieces" the bulk of Vol IV. As with the copy cited by Wolff, there is a half-title only in Vols III and IV ("The Posthumous Works of Mrs. Radcliffe").~This copy is still in the original 1826 boards-and-labels, and has not been "doctored" or "improved" or "sophisticated" in any way. Condition is near-fine (minor cracking at some joints as one would expect with paper-covered boards); most of the leaves after the end of "Gaston de Blondeville" (i.e. part of Vol III and all of Vol IV) remain unopened. Quite remarkable condition for four original-binding volumes approaching their 200th anniversary. Wolff 5680; NCBEL III 759. [Note: though Mrs. Radcliffe's first name is generally spelled "Ann" today, it is "Anne" on the title pages and spine labels of this book.].

"First edition, 4to, pp. [4], 27, [1] plus unpaginated lexicon in double column; slightly later green cloth, gilt lettering on spine; some foxing but still a nice copy. In another copy of the book we sold some time ago was the inscription in an unidentified hand: ""These etymons were not publd.-- only printed for the family."" Kennedy 8392, citing one other work by the same author, ""Observations Introductory to a Work on English Etymology,"" London, 1818. Thomson's Etymons sets out ""to trace the descent of English words; their affinity with the different dialects of Gothic spoken in Europe; and the connexion between our own and some other tongues both of Europe and Asia"" (from the Preface). NUC lists an 1819 edition of the same title, but with only 24pp. and with words beginning at the letter ""M.""

        Ali. "Ali, Vizier of Albanien, also called Pacha of Jonnina

      Philhellenic: London " In course of Publication in London by A. Friedal & sold by the principal book & printsellers in town & Country." June 1826. Black & white lithograph portrait of Ali Pacha from the second edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (4th part)" verso blank. The portrait bust, shows Ali in fur trimmed coat, smoking a chibouque; printed signature in turkish. Ali was considered part of the revolution despite his previous crimes against the Greek and Albanian populations because he went against the Supreme Porte. Clean and bright , Adam [de] Friedal, there is much confusion about Friedal's origins, He is supposed to be a Danish Phihellene and apparently passed himself off as a Baron. St Clair tells us that Friedal carried a lithographic press on his back whilst in Greece where he seems to have been between 1821-24.. He was at Missolonghi for a while with Lord Byron and married the sister of one of Byron's artificers, John Hodges. Byron wrote a letter introducing Friedal to the notice of the London Greek Commitee. Friedal returned and settled in London and produced his first portrait of Mavrocordato dated September 1824. "The Greeks. Twenty-four Portraits (In Four Parts Of Six Portraits Each,) of the Principal Leaders and Personages Who Have Made Themseves Most Conspicuous in the Greek Revolution.." 1st edition 1824. thereafter there are a number of editions, with differences to the portraits. The portraits in the 1st Edition, probably after Friedal's original drawings are fairly primitive, with each new edition they became more refined. A second edition of the first 2 parts was issued in 1826. Some of these plates are marked 'second edition', others merely have anew date on the plate surface. In most cases a completely new portrait replaces that of the previous ediion; parts 3 & 4 are unchanged. In 1827 two editions appeared with the imprint "London and Paris, 1827", some on India paper. one in which the portraits had no, or a very simple background, the other with full complex backgrounds. A French edition appeared the same year. In 1828-9 Dean & Munday brought out another series of Friedal plates, some but not all marked 'fourth edition', their most distinguishing feature being that they are full length. They re- issued a number of plates in 1830, marked fifth and sixth edition. There exist wrappers for a 'sixth edition 'appearing in 1832. [Navari].

        A Catalogue of Spanish and Portuguese Books, with Occasional Literary and Bibliographical Remarks

      xxx, 226 pp.; xxix, 225, [1] pp. Two parts in one. 8vo, cont. half-morocco & marbled boards, spine gilt, t.e.g. London: "M. Calero, Spanish Printer," 1826-29. One of the earliest catalogues issued by Salva (1786-49), the most important dealer of Spanish and Portuguese books in London during the first half of the 19th century. A member of a wealthy silk manufacturing family in Valencia, Salvá studied philology, philosophy, theology, and law at the city's university. He married the daughter of Pedro Jean Mallén, a French bookseller in Valencia who was considered to be the leading dealer of Spain; Salvá thereby entered the book trade. The arrival of Fernando VII in 1814 compelled Salvá to leave Spain as he owned and dealt in certain kinds of forbidden books. He first moved to Rome and then emigrated to London in 1824 where he established his bookshop at 124 Regent Street. This remarkable catalogue, issued in two parts, describes 4253 items and includes early manuscripts, incunabula, and many 16th- and 17th-century books. A large number of the books are very fully described including many of the great rarities. In addition to dealing in rare books, Salvá wrote, edited, and published a series of scholarly books. Fine copy from the Sunderland Library, Blenheim Palace with the bookplate Bernard Quaritch issued to commemorate the sale. Occasional unimportant foxing. With the later leather bookplates of Isidoro Fernández (1878-1963). .

        On the Influence of Signs in Mathematical Reasoning

      1 p.l., 53 pp. Large 4to, orig. blue wrappers, uncut. London: J. Smith, 1826. A remarkable association copy of this extremely rare offprint, linking two of the greatest scientists of the 19th century, and pre-figuring Babbage's later work on his difference and analytical engines. This copy bears the following inscription on the title-page in Babbage's hand: "To M. Gauss from the Author." Additionally, Babbage has written on the upper wrapper: "M. Gauss. Influence of Signs. 3. Ch. Babbage. On the influence of signs in mathematical reasoning." Babbage here presents his views on the importance of symbolic notation in mathematical reasoning. He argues that algebraic symbolism enables one to express ideas more briefly and precisely than in ordinary language; it enables one to consider problems in great generality, rather than only in special cases; and it often enables one to consider simultaneously different cases of a problem that would otherwise be treated separately. The use of mathematical symbols is more efficient, and less prone to error, than other forms of reasoning, as he emphasized particularly when discussing the superiority of algebraic analysis over geometrical reasoning: "[T]he power which we possess by the aid of symbols in compressing into a small compass the several steps of a chain of reasoning, whilst it contributes greatly to abridge the time which our enquiries would otherwise occupy, in difficult cases influences the accuracy of our conclusions: for from the distance which is sometimes interposed [in geometrical reasoning] between the beginning and the end of a chain of reasoning, although the separate parts are sufficiently clear, the whole is often obscure" (p. 8). Babbage also emphasizes the importance of choosing the correct notation: it should remind the user of the nature of the quantity itself (so use 'v' for velocity, 't' for time, and so on); and related quantities should be denoted by similar symbols (so v, v', v'' etc. for the velocities of different bodies in the same problem, for example). Babbage singles out Lagrange's Mecanique Analitique as a model to be emulated in the correct choice of mathematical symbols. The present paper may be seen as part of a chain of ideas that links not only his mathematical and scientific work, but also his views on politics and industry. While a student at Cambridge, Babbage formed, together with Herschel and Peacock, the "Analytical Society." This society was principally concerned with a matter of mathematical symbolism: its aim was famously to support "the principles of pure D'ism in opposition to the Dot-age of the University." Theological overtones apart, this was a plea to replace what Babbage and the other members of the Society viewed as the outdated and inefficient Newtonian fluxional "dot" notation still used in England with the Leibnizian dy/dx notation which was universally employed on the Continent. "For Herschel and Babbage, however, there was more to analysis than a debate about the appropriate mathematical symbols...The key to the success of analytical algebra as they saw it was its efficiency. It was a problem-solving technology that could produce answers quickly and without wasting resources...It was a way of economizing mental labor. As such it could be used to recognize what the most efficient way of proceeding in other enterprises might be too. It could provide the key, for example, to the most profitable way of deploying resources in order to maximize factory production."-Morus, When Physics became King, p. 36. "Babbage's ultimate solution to the problem of how to guarantee efficiency, transparency, and accuracy in reasoning was the same as his solution to the same problem in political economy: replace humans with machinery. Babbage was a firm exponent of the division of labor in factory management and equally enthusiastic for mechanization as the ultimate realization of the principle. His primary concern throughout the 1820s and beyond was to work on his projected calculating and analytical engines...The calculating engine would replace the human drudge work for calculating mathematical tables to be used (for example) in actuarial work and in astronomy. The analytical engine would go further -- it would replace the human capacity to reason as well."-ibid., pp. 37-38. When developing his difference engine Babbage again realized the importance of symbolism: in "A Method of Expressing by Signs the Action of Machinery" (Philosophical Transactions: 1826) he developed a special notation, related to Boolean algebra (which was developed later), to accurately describe the working of the engine. Babbage first met Gauss in the course of a European tour he undertook starting at the end of 1827. After travelling through Holland, Belgium, Germany and Italy, Babbage arrived in Berlin in September 1828 to meet Alexander von Humboldt, then regarded as the greatest scientist of the century. At the time, Humboldt was organizing the seventh annual Congress of German scientists. Babbage was present when the Congress opened on 18 September 1828, with Gauss among the several hundred scientists and luminaries present. It was there that Babbage met Gauss. Babbage's paper was read at a meeting of the Cambridge Philosophical Society on 16 December 1821, but it was not published in its Transactions until more than five years later (Vol. 2, 1827, pp. 325-377). The item offered here is a very rare pre-publication offprint, dated 1826 on the title page. In very fine and fresh condition, entirely uncut. Preserved in a handsome blue morocco-backed box. With the stamps of the "Gauss-Bibliothek" (also on upper wrapper) and the Royal Observatory at Göttingen on title with release stamp date 15 October 1951. ❧ D.S.B., I, pp. 354-56.

        Geographische-statistisch und historische Charte von Missouri

      Weimar: im Verlage des geographischen Instituts, 1826. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, in excellent condition. 20 x 25 inches. A highly important early map of the Great Plains This very attractive map is a fascinating historical document depicting the early development of the state of Missouri. The state was admitted into the Union as part of the Missouri Compromise in 1821, having been carved out the territory of the same name that was part of the Louisiana Purchase. Finely coloured in outline are fourteen named counties. Most of the settlement still hugs the Mississippi River, and is centered on the bustling river port of St. Louis, which was founded by French fur traders in 1763. The western counties maintain a large size, suggesting their sparse population and undeveloped nature. The map features the 'Osage Line' that runs vertically south from Fort Osage on the Missouri River, marking the border between lands ceded to the U.S. government by the Osage nation in 1808. Featured in the center of the state on the Missouri River is the newly-founded state capitol, Jefferson City. Notably, the map depicts the state before the 1835 'Platte Purchase', that extended its northern boundary west to the Missouri River. The map is surrounded by statistics and text that describes the physical, political and demographic profile of the state during an especially critical period in its development. This map is advanced from the one that appeared in Carey & Lea's American Atlas, printed in Philadelphia in 1822.

John Miers (1789?1879) was a British botanist and engineer, who traveled to South America to begin a copper mining venture in Chile, a trip that he abandoned when his wife fell ill, and instead focussed on collecting plants. "Travels in Chile and La Plata, which appeared ..[in 1826] in two volumes, edited and carried through the press by his father-in-law, Francis Place, was to bring him a lasting reputation as the foremost authority on the geography and way of life of that region, " (ODNB, 18688). Volume One is primarily a travel account and "a very good one" (Griffin), while the second volume is an organized and detailed description of Chile's geography, politics, history, society, mining, and natural history. Scattered foxing to plates and a few leaves including titles, else a near fine copy.

        John Logotheti. "John Logotheti Senator of the Executive Body in Greece"

      Philhellenic: London " In course of Publication in London by A. Friedal & sold by the principal book & printsellers in town & Country." June 1826. Black & white lithograph portrait of John' Lykourgos' Logothetes from the second edtion of Friedals "Series of Greek Portraits (2nd part)" verso blank. The portrait bust, shows Logothetis, seated holding a document and spectacles. Printed signature in Greek. Logothetis real name Georgios Paplomatas was born in Samos in 1772; after studying in Constantinople he moved to wALLACHIA WHERE HE BECAQME sECRETARY TO CONSTANTINE yPSILANTIS, AND LATER to Alexander Soutsos as Logotheti. Eventually returned to Constaninople and finally to Samos, but due to polical fights was forced in to, exile on Mont Athos. He was to return after 6 years, but again fell foul of his opponents and was condemned to death; escaping to Smyna where he joined the Filiki Eteria. In 1821 at the start of the Greek revolution Lycurgus returned to Samos, where residents welcomed him as savior and declared him a political and military leader of the island. His military and organizational skills resulted in the successful repulse of three raids against Samos in 1821, 1824 and 1826. He was also part of the failed rebellion on neighbouring Chios in March 1822. After the success of the Greek revolution. In 1828, the island became formally incorporated into the Hellenic State under Governor Ioannis Kapodistrias, as part of the province of the Eastern Sporades, but the London Protocol of 1830 excluded Samos from the borders of the independent Greek state. The Samians refused to accept their re-subordination to the Sultan, and Logothetis declared Samos to be an independent state, governed as before under the provisions of the 1821 constitution. Finally, due to the pressure of the Great Powers, Samos was declared an autonomous, tributary principality under Ottoman suzerainty. The Samians still refused to accept this decision until an Ottoman fleet enforced it in May 1834, forcing the revolutionary leadership and a part of the population to flee to independent Greece, where they settled near Chalkis. Logothetis moved to Athens where he was honoured by the Greek State and became a Senator. He died in 1850. Clean and bright; light spoting. Adam [de] Friedal, there is much confusion about Friedal's origins, He is supposed to be a Danish Phihellene and apparently passed himself off as a Baron. St Clair tells us that Friedal carried a lithographic press on his back whilst in Greece where he seems to have been between 1821-24.. He was at Missolonghi for a while with Lord Byron and married the sister of one of Byron's artificers, John Hodges. Byron wrote a letter introducing Friedal to the notice of the London Greek Commitee. Friedal returned and settled in London and produced his first portrait of Mavrocordato dated September 1824. "The Greeks. Twenty-four Portraits (In Four Parts Of Six Portraits Each,) of the Principal Leaders and Personages Who Have Made Themseves Most Conspicuous in the Greek Revolution.." 1st edition 1824. thereafter there are a number of editions, with differences to the portraits. The portraits in the 1st Edition, probably after Friedal's original drawings are fairly primitive, with each new edition they became more refined. A second edition of the first 2 parts was issued in 1826. Some of these plates are marked 'second edition', others merely have anew date on the plate surface. In most cases a completely new portrait replaces that of the previous ediion; parts 3 & 4 are unchanged. In 1827 two editions appeared with the imprint "London and Paris, 1827", some on India paper. one in which the portraits had no, or a very simple background, the other with full complex backgrounds. A French edition appeared the same year. In 1828-9 Dean & Munday brought out another series of Friedal plates, some but not all marked 'fourth edition', their most distinguishing feature being that they are full length. They re- issued a number of plates in 1830, marked fifth and sixth edition. There exist wrappers for a 'sixth edition 'appearing in 1832. [Navari].

      The “Fairy” was a 135 ton brig-sloop mounting 8 carronades and 2 6-pounders. She was launched in 1826 at the Chatham dockyard, and was of the same class as Darwin’s “Beagle.” The voyage recorded here took her to the Caribbean and the Bahamas. The “Skipjack” was a schooner built in Bermuda. Both she and the “Fairy” were probably engaged in suppressing the slave trade. These are typical naval logs, with daily entries giving course, wind, weather, shipboard evolutions, and notes. Bound in original marbled paper. Clean and legible.
