        Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électrodynamiques

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1827 Book. Fine. Soft cover. 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électrodynamiques, uniquement déduite de l&#39;expérience, dans lequel se trouvent réunis les Mémoires que M. Ampère a communiqués à l&#39;Académie royale des sciences, dans les séances des 4 et 26 décembre 1820, 10 juin 1822, 22 décembre 1823, 12 septembre et 23 novembre 1825. In: Mémoires de l&#39;Académie des Sciences de l&#39;Institut de France, Tome 6, pp. 175-388. Paris: Firmin Didot, 1827. Large 4to, 3 p.l., clxxvi, [3], 612 pp, 2 folding engr. plates. Original printed wrappers (frayed, cracked at spine) in modern cloth box. Pages untrimmed, text clean an virtually unspotted. Provenance: Harrison D. Horblit (book label). Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. A good copy. ---- <br><br> Norman 50; Honeyman sale 135; DSB I, p.145. FIRST EDITION. "AMPERE&#39;S GREATEST WORK" (DSB). "Having established a noumenal foundation for electrodynamic phenomena, Ampère&#39;s next steps were to discover the relationships between the phenomena and to devise a theory from which these relationships could be mathematically deduced. This double task was undertaken in the years 1821-1825, and his success was reported in his greatest work, the Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électrodynamiques, uniquement déduite de l&#39;expérience (1827). In this work, the PRINCIPIA OF ELECTRODYNAMICS, Ampère first described the laws of action of electric currents, which he had discovered from four extremely ingenious experiments. The measurement of electrodynamic forces was very difficult, although it could be done, as J.-B. Riot and Felix Savart had shown in their formulation of the Biot-Savart law. Ampère realized, however, that much greater accuracy could be achieved if the experiments could be null experiments, in which the forces involved were in equilibrium." (DSB I p. 145). "This volume was not published until 1827." (Honeyman, 135). - Also present in this volume of the Mémoire is an important work by NAVIER "Mémoire sur les lois du mouvement des fluids." (Roberts & Trent, p. 2). This classic paper on fluid mechanics, contains his calculations about fluid flow and gives his equations for motion of a viscous fluid. Also discovered by Stokes, these calculations are known today as the Navier-Stokes Equations. Navier analyzed the motion of a fluid in much the same fashion as Euler, but considered in addition a hypothetical attraction or repulsion between adjacent molecules. - "Poisson&#39;s "Mémoire sur la théorie du magnétisme en mouvement" concerns attractive force and formulates new equations for the solution of problems therein. This work influenced the researches of Green (1828) and Gauss (1829). Also in this volume is his "Mémoire sur le calcul numerique des integrals définies" in which he sets out to improve the method of quadratures ... "The following memoirs are also of interest: Legendre&#39;s "Recherches sur quelques objets d&#39;analyse indéterminée et particulièrement sur le théoreme de Fermat"; &#39;Laplace&#39;s "Mémoires sur le développement de l&#39;anomalie vraie et du rayon vecteur elliptique, en séries ordonnées suivant les puissances de l&#39;excentricité;" as well as Cauchy&#39;s "Mémoire sur les développements des fonctions en séries périodiques"... "The second part of the volume contains a history of the Academy with Fourier&#39;s elegy for William Herschel and Cuvier&#39;s for Duhamel." (Roberts &Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 2)..

Ending with Psalms [CXIX], remaining fourth volume absent. Three volume set only (missing Hagiography and New Testament; also without prolegomena from Samuel Lee) . The most inclusive of the great Polyglots since the London, or Walton&#39;s, Polyglot of 1657, it was printed by Samuel Bagster of Paternoster Row: The first issue [our set] of the â&#128;&#152;Biblia Sacra Polyglotta Bagsterianaâ&#128;&#153; appeared between 1817 and 1828, four volumes in foolscap octavo and quarto form, containing, besides the prolegomena of Dr. Samuel Lee, the Hebrew Old Testament with points, the Samaritan Pentateuch, the Septuagint Greek version of the Old Testament, the Latin Vulgate, the authorised English version, the Greek Textus Receptus of the New Testament, and the Peshito or ancient Syriac version. However, due to a fire at the printers in March 1822, very few of these sets were actually distributed; In particular, Lowndes states only twenty-three copies of the New Testament portion [the one volume missing in our set] were preserved. A folio edition of the polyglot was published in 1828, repeated in 1831, and subsequently, presenting eight languages at the opening of the volume, and including all the ancient and modern versions above mentioned. Copies of the different texts and translations were brought out separately, and in various combinations. The two volume folio edition (1828; printed many times thereafter) , encompassing the complete old and new testament in eight languages, is more commonly found. The third fascicle in the set has a pasted in advertisement on verso of board, announcing that the polylglott bible will soon be issued in a two part series. Subjects: Polyglot Bible â&#128;&#147; 1827-1828. Biblia sacra polyglotta Bagsteriana. Not a single set of the first issue listed on OCLC. A single listing exists for a single volume, which survives at a library in Scottland.

        Real Life in London; Or, the Rambles and Adventures of Bob Tallyho, Esq. and His Cousin The Hon. Tom. Dashall Through the Metropolis; Exhibiting A Living Picture of Fashionable Characters, Manners, and Amusements in High and Low Life

      London: Printed for Jones and Co., 1827-1824. 2 vols, thick 8vo, x, 656; ix, 668 pp. With 34 hand-colored plates including frontispiece and title-page to each volume. Full modern crushed red morocco, gilt tops, otherwise untrimmed. Ads bound in front of vol. 1 and after the contents in vol. 2. Mixed set, later issues, but a very good complete copy ideal for reading and enjoying. This knock-off of EganÕs ÒLife in LondonÓ demonstrates the enormous popularity of the original. ÒEgan&#39;s creation was an instant success. Pirate versions appeared, featuring such figures as &#39;Bob Tallyho&#39;, &#39;Dick Wildfire&#39; and the like. Print-makers speedily knocked off cuts featuring the various &#39;stars&#39; and the real-life public flocked to the &#39;sporting&#39; addresses that Egan had his heroes frequent. There was a translation into French. At least six plays were based on Egan&#39;s characters, contributing to yet more sales. One of these was exported to America, launching the Tom and Jerry craze there. The version created by William Thomas Moncrieff was praised as The Beggar&#39;s Opera of its day. Moncrieff&#39;s production of Tom and Jerry, or, Life in London ran continuously at the Adelphi Theatre for two seasons and it was the dramatist&#39;s work as much as the author&#39;s that did so much to popularize the book&#39;s trademark use of fashionable slang. Life in London appeared until 1828, when Egan closed it down.Ó

        Pintura de los males que ha causado a la España el gobierno absoluto de los dos últimos reynados y de la necesidad del restablecimiento de las antiguas cortes, o de una carta constitucional dada por el rey Fernando.

      R. Laguillotière y Comp., Bordeaux 1827 - viii +228pp +32pp documentos justificativos, erratas and index, 20x13cm, leather and boards, solid binding in excellent condition, ex-libris of Sir George Henry Scott Douglas Bt., private collection number on small white disk on front cover. José Presas was a Spanish careerist/adventurer/writer of Catalan origin whose support for the claim of the Infanta Carlota Joaquina (sister of Ferdinand VII of Spain and wife of John VI of Portugal) to the Spanish throne caused him to leave his post as accountant of the province of Granada and emigrate to Buenos Aires. After various unsavory incidents there, he fled to Brasil where, fortunately for him, the Portuguese royal family had taken refuge following the Napoleonic invasion of the Peninsula. In 1808 Presas was appointed secretary to Carlota Joaquina, and as such he drafted her claims to the Spanish throne. In 1812 he returned to ¿liberal¿ Spain to take up various official posts and, after the fall of absolutism in 1820, thence to Mexico in 1822 as administrator of Royal Revenue. Following Mexican independence, in 1823 he returned to Spain, but on Ferdinand VII¿s second restoration he again fled, this time to France. Considering himself an academic (with a self-conferred doctorate in the law), he wrote several treatieses of a politico-historical nature, of which the present work is the most well known, vituperating against the absolutist rule of Charles IV and Ferdinand VII and exposing in detail alleged misdeeds of each of the ministers of these two reigns. A useful tool for research into this period. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        President John Quincy Adamsí Third State of the Union Address referring to the Treaty of Paris ending the Revolutionary War and the Treaty of Ghent, which he signed, ending the War of 1812

      Newspaper, 1p, 18.75î x 23.75. Headlined ìPresidentís Message. / National Intelligencer ÿ. Extra / Tuesday, December 4, 1827.î Minor flaws, uniformly foxed, frayed edges. Completely legible text not affected. Fine condition. Article II Section 3 of the United States Constitution states that the President ìshall from time to time give to the Congress Information of the State of the Union, and recommend to their Consideration such Measures as he shall judge necessary and expedientÿî Presidents Washington and Adams delivered their annual messages to Congress in person. Jefferson discontinued the practice. Until Wilson reestablished the practice in 1913, the President would send his written message to each House where it would be read by a clerk. This six column printing is headed ìThe President of the United States transmitted, this day, to both Houses of Congress, the following Messageî The Journals of the House and Senate recorded that ìA communication, in writing, was then received from the President of the United States, by Mr. John Adams, his private Secretary: which was read, and is as followsÿî John Adams was President John Quincy Adamsí 24-year-old son, born in 1803 on the 4th of July. On foreign policy, referring to both the Treaty of Paris ending the Revolutionary War and the Treaty of Ghent which ended the War of 1812 and which he signed as a representative of the United States, in part, ìThis final disposal of one of the most painful topics of collision between the United States and Great Britain not only affords an occasion of gratulation to ourselves, but has had the happiest effect in promoting a friendly disposition and in softening asperities upon other objects of discussion; nor ought it to pass without the tribute of a frank and cordial acknowledgment of the magnanimity with which an honorable nation, by the reparation of their own wrongs, achieves a triumph more glorious than any field of blood can ever bestowÿ ìIn the execution of the Treaties of Peace of November 1782, and September 1783, between the United States and Great Britain, and which terminated the war of our Independence, a line of boundary was drawn as the demarcation of territory between the two countries, extending over near twenty degrees of latitude, and ranging over seas, lakes, and mountains, then very imperfectly explored, and scarcely opened to the geographical knowledge of the age. In the progress of discovery and settlement by both parties since that time, several questions of boundary between their respective territories, have arisen, which have been found of exceedingly difficult adjustment. At the close of the last war with Great Britain four of these questions pressed themselves upon the consideration of the negotiators of the Treaty of Ghent, but without the means of concluding a definitive arrangement concerning themÃ?î

        Om Anvendelse af mindste Kvadraters Methode i nogle Tilfælde, hvor en Komplikation af visse Slags uensartede tilfælde Fejlkilder giver Fejlene en "systematisk" Karakter.Copenhagen: Bianco Luno, 1880. First edition.

      The first mathematical formulation of Brownian motion. The mathematical model which describes the random movement of particles suspended in a liquid that Robert Brown observed in 1827, plays a fundamental role in modern statistics and economics. In this paper [On the application of the method of least squares to some cases, in which a combination of certain types of inhomogeneous random sources of errors gives these a 'systematic' character], concerned with determining the distance between Copenhagen and Lund (Sweden) from astronomical observations, Thiele gave the first mathematical formulation of Brownian motion (or the Wiener process) in order to account for the fluctuations of the position of the instrument. The stochastic model which Thiele developed was far beyond his time, and none of his contemporaries could grasp its contents or understand its importance. Thiele, however, seems himself to have had expectations for its recognition, since he had a French translation published later the same year. Independently of Thiele, Louis Bachelier utilized Brownian motion in his dissertation from 1900 on the theory of speculation to evaluate stock options. And Einstein used the process in 1905 to confirm the existence of molecules. See Steffen Lauritzen's 'Thiele: Pioneer in Statistics', were an annotated English translation of this paper is published as the first chapter.. Large 4to: 267 x 214 mm.

In one letter, written on the recto of one sheet with Gilbert&#39;s address on verso, Davy mentions a recent visit to William Herschel ("... I have been very much delighted to see the activity & zeal with which Mr Herschell pursues Astronomy & the perfect state of his instruments..."); in another letter (one sheet, both sides), Davy writes emotionally to Gilbert about his health and the Presidency of the Royal Society: "...I am very anxious to learn the state of your feelings with respect to the Presidency, if what I fear must be the case the state of my health obliges me to resign...". Gilbert would indeed succeed Davy as President of the Royal Society in 1827 after Davy resigned due to illness. In the third letter (one sheet, both sides), Davy writes to Davy while convalescing with Coleridge&#39;s friend Tom Poole ("...Mr Poole my kind Host desires to be respectfully remembered to the Pres. RS...."). In the final letter (half sheet, one side) Davy addresses a simple business matter. Each letter is signed "H. Davy". 1805-27. Folds and a few spots of early tape reinforcement.

Second edition, carrying Ainsworth&#39;s name as publisher instead of John Ebers who issued the book originally. Sir John Chiverton was written in collaboration with Ainsworth&#39;s school friend, John Partington Aston. Although the work was jointly written and sometimes claimed by Aston as solely his, many of the reviews described the novel as Ainsworth&#39;s alone. The novel also brought Ainsworth to the attention of historical novelist Walter Scott, who later wrote about the work in various articles; the two later met in 1828. Condition: In a decorative straight-grained morocco binding with gilt detailing. Externally, generally smart, though with some light rubbing and a few marks. Front hinge slightly strained. Internally, firmly bound. Ink inscription to verso of front free-endpaper, and ink signature to title page. Pages are bright, though with the occasional patch of foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        Manuscript Log Book of the Ship Augusta

      Folio (12 1/2 x8 1/2), 19 leaves hand written in ink on both sides, stitched but without covers set in a modern folding box. The log is a little dog-eared, with a few stains. However, it is in quite nice condition for a 19th century log book. Original log book of a voyage from Rio de Janeiro to New York from December 24, 1827, to February 20, 1828, which is when the ship arrived at its destination. For each day, the weather and conditions are given in detail, the various headings, and the occasional sighting of another ship. While no whaling is involved in this venture, this log book came from a whaling collection. The name of the ship is not mentioned, but information from the National Archives and Records Service indicates it was the Augusta, commanded by Captain Suchet Muran, with one deck, three masts, a square stern, and a woman bust head. The ship was 85 feet long, 25 feet wide, and 226 tons. On the rear leaf of the log is a 16 line poem about the sea, but no author is given.
