        Daniel Webster Details a Duel Challenge by Senator John Randolph

      1826 - Autograph Manuscript. Ca. 1826-1831. 2 pp. Randolph twice challenged the venerable Congressmen Daniel Webster. The first was in 1816, when Randolph felt scorned by Webster's speech in a House debate over sugar duty. The second, relating to this document, was in 1825, after Randolph had seethed for eight months over Webster denying William H. Crawford "the fullest opportunity to answer the charges against him" during the election of 1824. (Register of Debates, 18th Congress, 2nd Session, 56-58). In the second challenge, Senator Thomas Hart Benton delivered Randolph's dare to Webster while the House was in session.Mutual friends intervened on both challenges and attempted to resolve the matters as quietly as possible. In the end, Randolph withdrew both challenges. Historians believe that Benton played an important role in resolving the second conflict. In 1826, after insulting Secretary of State Henry Clay on the Senate Floor, Randolph accepted Clay's challenge, which subsequently took place but concluded with a handshake.The date of this manuscript must be 1826 or later as it refers to "then Senator Lloyd." It doesn't mention Lloyd's death in 1831. TranscriptMr. R sent Mr. W. a challenge, thro' Mr. B. Mr. W. wrote an answer, to this challenge, and was prepared to send it, thro. Genl Wool, of the Army. This answer, is the one alluded to, or spoken of, in the newspaper publication, of which Genl. B. has a manuscript copy.At this stage of the transaction, whether brought about by the agency of third persons, or otherwise, I now can scarcely recollect a private interview, and, indeed, more than one, took place between Mr. W and Mr. B. at these interviews, it was finally arranged; 1.That Mr. R. should withdraw the challenge 2.That Mr. W. should destroy his answer, and keep no copy. 3.That, therefore, Mr. B. should be at liberty to say to Mr. R. that Mr. W. did not intend, in what he said, to impeach Mr. R's personal veracity. 4.That neither party should make, or authorize any publication, respecting the transaction. Genl. Breckenridge may be assured that the forgoing is an accurate short statement of the agreement. My copy of the writing is at Boston- I destroyed my letter, according to agreement; I left no copy. From that day to this; I do not know that I have spoken of its contents to friends. As contents were known to Mr. Lloyd, then Senator of Massachusetts, Genl Wool, and one other Gentlemen. I principally conferred, in relation to the whole transaction, in all its stages, with Mr. Lloyd. I have scrupulously fulfilled my part of the agreement, as to not authorizing any publications. Historic BackgroundJohn Randolph (1773-1883) of Roanoke, Virginia was infamous for his temper and language, which stirred equally fervent opposition within the Senate and Congress. His rage often flared, resulting in several challenges to duels. He became the Minister of Russia and served in the House of Representatives four times, while Senator Daniel Webster was hailed as the greatest US Secretary of State. He formed part of the "Great Triumvirate" opposing Andrew Jackson.Daniel Webster (1782-1852). American orator, lawyer and statesman. Sent to Congress in 1813. Settled in Boston in 1816 and distinguished himself in the Dartmouth College case. Became famous by his oration on the bicentenary of the landing of the Pilgrim fathers. Returned to Congress in December 1823 as a Massachusetts representative; in 1827 elected to the Senate. He had favored free trade, but in 1828 defended the new protective tariff. His whole career was marked by a deep reverence for established institutions and accomplished facts, and for the principle of nationality. Webster was called into Benjamin Harrison's cabinet as Secretary of State. Under President John Tyler he negotiated the Ashburton Treaty with Great Britain, which settled the long-standing of the Maine and New Brunswick boundary and ended a threat of war between Gr.

        [MANUSCRIPT COPY BOOK WITH EARLY 19th CENTURY PRECEPTS OF ASTRONOMY, ILLUSTRATED WITH WATERCOLOR AND INK DIAGRAMS]

      [N.p., 1826. [10]pp., plus five watercolor and ink diagrams. Original patterned stiff paper wrappers, manuscript paper label on front wrapper. Spine nearly perished, edges and corners somewhat worn. Contemporary ownership inscription on wrapper label. Light tanning to text leaves. Illustrations generally clean aside from very light dampstain in gutter, not affecting images. Very good. GET BOX MADE. A very attractive example of American astronomical folk art, in a manuscript lesson book for astronomy. The text itself was compiled from more than one contemporary source, including a school book by David Blair, AN EASY GRAMMAR OF NATURAL AND EXPERIMENTAL PHILOSOPHY, first published in London in 1808, and George Gregory's NEW AND COMPLETE DICTIONARY FOR THE ARTS AND SCIENCES, originally published in London in 1815, both with numerous subsequent American editions. The text is constructed in the form of a catechism, with a rhetorical question preceding sixty-two categorical statements about stars, planets, the solar system, and other elements of astronomy. Accompanying the text are five ink and watercolor astronomical diagrams of considerable artistic merit representing various planetary and star systems. The first diagram depicts the solar system to the limit of Uranus (denoted as "Georgium Sidus," the original name given by its discoverer, William Herschel), and includes the dwarf planets Ceres, Pallas, Vesta, and Juno, the largest objects in the asteroid belt beyond Mars. The second image shows the variation of day and night across the course of the year, coordinated with the signs of the Zodiac, drawn in an outer ring around the central diagram (and including the twins of Gemini waving American flags). The third drawing demonstrates the phases of the Moon, and the "Appearance of the Moon to the Inhabitants on Earth." The final two illustrations consist of very well executed star charts, the first delineating the constellations of Ursa Major and Ursa Minor, and the second showing Orion, with a club rather than his usual bow. A splendid confluence of scientific study and American folk art.

Darin geht es nicht nur um die Zubereitung exquisiter Speisen, sondern grundsätzlich um sehr geistvolle Theorien zu Tafelfreuden, eine Art Lebenslehre.

Mit seinem Buch begründete er eine neue Form des Schreibens über Essen und trug in Europa wesentlich zur Weiterentwicklung der Kochkunst bei". Berühmt sind seine Aphorismen wie beispielsweise "Ein echter Feinschmecker, der ein Rebhuhn verspeist hat, kann sagen, auf welchem Bein es zu schlafen pflegte" oder "Ein gutes Essen ohne Dessert ist wie eine einäugige Schönheit". Die Farbtafeln und Vignetten stammen von Charles Huard (1874 - 1965).

        Narrative of a Survey of the Intertropical and Western Coasts of Australia. Performed between the years 1818 and 1822... With an Appendix, containing various subjects relating to Hydrography and Natural History..

      London: John Murray, 1826. A couple of leaves at the end of vol. 1 lightly stained; surface of binding leather somewhat cracked, recently well rebacked.. Two volumes, octavo, with a folding chart, 13 plates and a folding engraving; bound without the colophon leaf required by Ferguson at the end of vol. 2, but complete with the final leaf of errata (intended to be cut to form two errata slips); contemporary calf gilt. First edition, first issue: the rare form of this important book with the publication date of 1826 on both title-pages. The book was properly published in 1827, with the title-pages reset to show that date. The book describes the important Australian coastal voyages of the Mermaid and the Bathurst. From 1815 or so, British interest in the largely uncharted northern and north-western coast of Australia had increased, partly out of concern at the territorial ambitions of other nations, especially the Dutch and the French. King was sent from England in 1817, with Admiralty instructions to complete the survey of Australia and finish the charting begun by Flinders and Freycinet. By 1824-25 he had issued a series of eight large charts showing the northern coasts, to be followed with this complete printed journal of his expedition. The naturalist Allan Cunningham sailed with the expedition, and the narrative includes extensive comments on botanical and geological phenomena, together with nautical and hydrographic observations. The engraved views were taken from King's own sketches.The work also includes significant natural history essays, including work by John Edward Gray, William Sharp Macleay and William Henry Fitton, three senior British scientists. An important section publishes the long essay by Allan Cunningham, 'A Few General Remarks on the Vegetation of certain coasts of Terra Australis…'. Cunningham had sailed with King, and so this section has the added interest of eyewitness reportage, as well as comparisons between the botany of east and west coasts. Cunningham's report is supplemented by notes from Robert Brown; and the whole section concludes with three natural history plates.Admiral Phillip Parker King, Australian-born son of the third governor Philip Gidley King, became the Navy's leading hydrographer. His coastal voyages and Oxley's expeditions inland were the great expansionary undertakings of the Macquarie era. Despatched to complete Flinders's interrupted survey and firmly to establish Great Britain's claim to the north coast, King charted the greater part of the west, north and north-east coasts and also carried out important surveys in the area of the Barrier Reef. His hydrographical work is still the basis of many of the modern charts for the areas he surveyed.First published in April 1826, the first issue of this classic Australian voyage is "a notorious rarity" (Wantrup). Late in 1826 or early in 1827 the publisher, John Murray, had the original title-page dated 1826 excised and replaced with a cancel title-page dated 1827. Known to Ferguson in a single copy and to Davidson in less than a handful, more copies of this issue have beeen identified in recent years but the 1826 issue remains a desirable rarity.

      1826 - MALTHUS, Thomas Robert. An Essay on the Principle of Population; or, A View of its Past and Present Effects on Human Happiness. London: John Murray, 1826. Two volumes. Octavo, contemporary full diced brown calf, raised bands, black and red morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers and edges. Housed in a custom slipcase. $2600.1826 edition of Malthus' controversial Essay, the final one published in his lifetime, in contemporary calf."One of the founders of modern economics," Malthus first published his highly contested Essay on the Principles of Population in 1798. This landmark work "was originally the product of a discussion on the perfectibility of society with his father, [who] urged him to publish. Thus the first edition (published anonymously) was essentially a fighting tract, but later editions were considerably altered and grew bulkier as Malthus defended his views against a host of critics". The Essay was highly influential in the progress of thought in early 19th-century Europe [and] his influence on social policy was considerable". Both Darwin and Wallace clearly acknowledged Malthus as a source of the idea of "˜the struggle for existence" (PMM 251). "The achievement of Malthus was the exposition of the theory of population; and his name has been associated so closely with this theory that, like Darwin's, it has added a new adjective to the language of civilized peoples" (Palgrave II:670-1). This is the sixth edition, the final one to be published in his lifetime. Lowndes, 1459. Goldsmiths 24893. Early owner signatures dated 1874.Text quite fresh and clean, Volume II with small chip to rear free endpaper, slight rubbing, edge-wear to contemporary boards. An extremely good copy.

        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.

        Filosofia della statistica esposta da Melchiorre Gioja autore degli Elementi di filosofia.

      Giovanni Pirotta, febbraio-giugno 1826. Due volumi in 4to (cm 28), bella legatura strettamente coeva in mezza pelle con punte, eleganti fregi di gusto neoclassico sul dorso, che reca pure un duplice tassello con titoli e numerazione dei tomi incisi in oro (piccoli restauri e cerniere consolidate), pp. XVI, 308 + pp. 415, (1) con 5 grandi tabelle fuori testo più volte ripiegate (T. II Pag. 162 Riassunto della teoria della stima e della rendita de' terreni, I Delle parti e degli oggetti della statistica, II Tableau Analytique et Méthodique des considérations et des faits que la statistique embrasse, III Filosofia della statistica. Prima parte-Sintomi dello stato delle nazioni, IV Filosofia della statistica. Seconda parte-Cause interne ed esterne, fisiche e morali dello stato delle nazioni). Bellissima copia.PRIMA EDIZIONE di una delle prime opere italiane di statistica, preceduta solo dagli Elementi dell'arte statistica di Luca Cagnazzi de Samuele (Napoli, 1808-09). ll Il Gioia proclama compito principale della statistica la deduzione dei risultati dei fatti che ella osserva. Fedele a questo principio, egli divide la sua Filofsofia della statistica in due parti: la prima espone i sintomi dello stato delle nazioni e contiene il Discorso elementare sull'indole, sull'estensione, sui vantaggi della statistica, la seconda accenna le cause dello stato delle nazioni.. Non pertanto l'autore riduce la filosofia della statistica ad una semplice metodologia applicata alla formazione e allo studio della statistica, definendola la cognizione ragionata delle norme generali per ricercare, delle fonti a cui attingere, dei sintomi per riconoscere, dei principi per giudicare, degli usi a cui servono gli elementi relativi allo stato delle nazioni..'gg (A. Gabaglio, Teoria generale della statistica, Milano, 1888, I, pp. 96-101). Melchiorre Gioja, originario di Piacenza studiò dapprima teologia, quindi matematica, economia e statistica. Fu soprattutto in quest'ultimo campo che ottenne i risultati più originali (cfr. J. A. Schumpeter, Geschichte der ökonomischen Analyse, Göttingen 1965, I, pp. 511 e 519). Nel 1801 fu nominato storiografo della Repubblica Cisalpina. Coinvolto nelle vicende politiche italiane del suo tempo, rivestì vari incarichi presso il comune di Milano, tra cui quello di direttore dell'ufficio statistico. Nel 1820, in seguito al ritorno della restaurazione, fu imprigionato insieme a Silvio Pellico. Insieme al Custodi e al Romagnosi fu tra gl'iniziatori degli Annali universali di statistica (1824-1871) (cfr. D.B.I., s.v.). ICCU, ITICCUNAPEý01567. Goldsmiths', Additions, 24785.1.

        Alexander-Newski-Gedächtniskirche auf dem Kapellenberg, Potsdam, 1856. Original-Photographie. Vintage. Salzpapier-Abzug. Verlagsseitig montiert. Köln, verlegt durch F.C. Eisen, 1856. Bildgröße 25 x 39 cm. Blattgröße 45 x 63 cm.

      - Auf dem Träger Blindstempel des Verlegers (der Träger an den Rändern leicht gebräunt sowie ein ganz kleiner Einriß im rechten weißen Rand, der Abzug im linken und unteren Rand etwas blass, sonst sehr gut erhalten). Rarissimum der frühen Potsdam-Photographie und sicherlich die erste großformatige fotografische Ansicht der berühmten Kirche. Die Kirche wurde zwischen 1826 und 1829 von Friedrich Wilhelm III. für die aus Russland stammenden Soldaten des Sängerchors der russischen Kolonie Alexandrowka errichtet und ist das älteste russisch-orthodoxe Kirchengebäude in Westeuropa. Die frühesten überlieferten Potsdam-Fotos stammen von sog. 'Reisephotographen', also solchen, die nicht ortsansässig waren. In Potsdam waren dies Michiels (1823-1887), der 1856 dort photographierte, und die Brüder Schneider, die erst 1859 Berlin und Potsdam bereisten. Michiels ist vor allem für seine Aufnahmen vom Kölner Dom bekannt, von seinen - hervorragenden - Potsdam-Photographien tauchten bisher nur ganz wenige auf. Vier Motive wurden 2006 im Rahmen der Ausstellung 'Auslöser Potsdam' gezeigt, weitere kennt man nur aus dem Inserat, das der Verleger Eisen 1858 in der Leipziger 'Illustrirten Zeitung' schaltete. Abgesehen von der Seltenheit ist das große Format und der ausgezeichnete Erhaltungszustand des hier angebotenen Abzugs bemerkenswert. Der seinerzeitige Preis betrug übrigens 2 Taler (Thaler) pro Blatt, das entspricht etwas dem Wochengehalt eines Webers um 1850 oder dem halben Monatslohn einer Stickerin oder Weißnäherin in Berlin. - Vgl.

        Sinfonie mit Schluss-Chor über Schillers Ode: "An die Freude" für grosses Orchester, 4 Solo und 4 Chor - Stimmen. Componirt und Seiner Majestät dem König von Preussen Friedrich Wilhelm III in tiefster Ehrfurcht zugeeignet...125.tes Werk

      Engraved title-page, one letter-press leaf of subscribers, 226 engraved pages, & a final blank. Folio, cont. sheep-backed marbled boards (rubbed, lower joint expertly repaired, foot of spine a little worn), orig. printed upper wrapper cut-out & mounted on upper board (a little stained). Mainz & Paris: B. Schott Sons; Antwerp: A. Schott, [1826]. First edition, the rare first issue with the leaf of subscribers, of Beethoven's epic Ninth Symphony. "Even for Beethoven, the Ninth Symphony was a signal accomplishment, the most ambitious work in a series of pieces that changed forever the concept of the symphony. The Ninth required a gestation period of almost thirty years, beginning with Beethoven's initial consideration of Schiller's 'An die Freude' in the 1790s, continuing with his first sketches of 1815, and ending with his completed score of 1824… "Significantly, it was also the composer's last word in the realm of the symphony, since plans for the Tenth - or what seems to have been the Tenth - remained in sketch form. In the Ninth, even more than in Fidelio, Beethoven set forth a visionary credo for humankind, for its 'rescue from the chains of the tyrants.' The work represents a forceful voice for Romantic aspirations, as expressed with such deep fervor in Schiller's famous ode… "The Ninth is an epic, revolutionary work. Within its extended time frame, one traverses the many plains of Beethoven's compositional landscape: demonic conflict (the opening Allegro), tempestuous contrasts (the scherzo), ethereal reflection (the Adagio), and unabashed exuberance (the finale). In the last movement, Beethoven symbolically broke not only the chains of tyrants, but those of instrumental music as well, moving out of E.T.A. Hoffmann's abstract realm of 'pure expression' and into the world of the vocal symphony. The immense mixed forces of the Ninth prepared the way for the changes that took place in the symphonic repertory in the next hundred and fifty years, from Berlioz to Mahler to Berio."-George B. Stauffer, in his preface to David Benjamin Levy's Beethoven: the Ninth Symphony. "The first edition score of the Ninth Symphony was not issued until the end of August 1826 (B. Schott Söhne, Mainz; Plate Number 2322), and it was marketed as Beethoven's '125.tes Werk' on a subscription basis along with the score of the Missa solemnis, op. 123 and the 'Consecration of the House' Overture, op. 124. Beethoven promised the Philharmonic Society of London that he would not publish the Ninth until after it had been performed in London."-Levy, op. cit., p. 42. The leaf of subscribers was only inserted in copies ordered prior to publication; it is itself a fascinating document listing the names of the (mostly) German world of musical institutes, publishers, and musicians of the time. The word "Partition" on the upper wrapper (here mounted onto the upper board of the binding, as is common with some of the few other surviving copies) was omitted in the later issues. The original stab-holes are present. Provenance: Jacob Martin Severinus Heuckeroth (1853-1936), composer, and chief conductor of the Arnhemsche Orchest Vereeniging from 1892 to 1904, and of the Nederlandse Opera from 1908 to 1912, with his ownership inscription in pencil to the upper margin of the second front free end-paper and upper margin of title, and with his stamp at foot, and to the lower blank margins of a couple of further pages, as well as on the mounted printed original upper wrapper. Heuckeroth placed specific emphasis on the performance of symphonic works. The Arnhemsche Orchest Vereeniging first performed Beethoven's Ninth, with Heuckeroth conducting. His studies of the symphony are reflected by occasional notes in pencil and blue crayon in this copy. A very good copy and extremely fresh, preserved in a cloth box. A few leaves with light, marginal damp-staining; oval purple ownership stamp on title, to lower margins of a couple of pages, and on the mounted upper wrapper; several old page markers; one leaf with a stain and with minor paper abrasion in outer blank margin. ?

        Feyerliche Einweihung der Synagoge in München den 21. April 1826

      Printing in Hebrew. 23 pages. Small 4to, orig. blue boards, gilt border round sides, contrasting pink endpapers, a.e.g. Munich: C. Wolf, [1826]. The extremely rare printed program for the inauguration of the first public synagogue in Munich on 21 April 1826. The impressive neoclassical building on the Westenriederstrasse was designed and erected by Jean Baptiste Métivier for the small but important Munich community of court Jews and state suppliers founded in 1815. The project was supported by King Max I Joseph of Bavaria, and his successor Ludwig I attended the ceremony with his wife and members of the nobility. Contemporary journals praised the festive character of the event. The inauguration speech was given by Hirsch Aub who became rabbi of the new synagogue through more than four decades. The director of the royal chapel and opera, Joseph Hartmann Stunz, and the royal intendant Johann Nepomuk von Poissl set prayers, psalms and a long hymn to music. The instrumental parts were executed by the King's musicians. The ceremony ended with the Ha-noten teshu'a (a prayer for the welfare of the King and his family) and the evening prayers for Sabbath and Pesach. Much printing in Hebrew. A crisp and large copy on thick paper. In fine condition, from the Wittelsbach library of the dukes and kings of Bavaria.

        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. Dunnington, G.W., Gauss: Titan of Science, 2004. Poggendorff, I, 81.

        Letter signed.

      N. p., 30. IV. 1826. - 8vo. 3 pp. on bifolium. A secretarial letter signed by Sir Humphry Davy ("H. Davy") as President of the Royal Society, to one "Sir", marked "Private & confidential", explaining that, as President, he is unable to interfere in elections, mentioning that Fellows are divided into two classes, "working scientific men" and "Patrons of Science", going on to explain that professional men should offer "some paper or communication which may imply qualification" though "this rule has not been so strictly attended to as it ought to have been". - At this time, a year before Davy gave up the Presidency, the Royal Society was "teetering between remaining a gentleman's club and becoming an academy of science. Davy favoured judicious modernizing [.] He made publication an important factor in election, but, lacking the social status of Banks, he was unable to force his will upon the fellows, and found himself between hostile camps" (David Knight, ODNB). - Two light stains, and some slight damage to edges.
