        Wilkinson's General Atlas of the World. Quarters, Empires, Kingdoms, States etc. with Appropriate Tables. New Edition; but the First Edition with additional maps of Mexico, Brazil etc.

      London: Hamilton, Adams, & Co. 1827.. Engraved title and 53 engraved maps with contemporary full hand-colouring; the two World maps double-page, the remainder single. 4to (32.5 x 27 cm), contemporary half calf, marbled boards; boards detached, lacking backstrip, stitching broken at one gutter; internally very bright and clean apart from faults as listed below. This atlas contains 5 maps not present in earlier editions, including Mexico (in which Texas is shown in the region of San Luis Potosi, New Santander, and Coahuila); Brazil; Columbia; & Peru, Chile, & Buenos Ayres; these with Hamilton Adams imprint and dated 1827. The other maps with Wilkinson's imprint and variously dated between 1809 & 1821 and include "the United States of America Confirmed by Treaty 1783", this map dated 1812 in the imprint, with a table below the title listing 20 states, including Franklinia. The Editor, in his preamble, states that geography "Always, therefore, had it made a part of polite education......more particularly interesting, not only from the great events that have recently taken place, and the important scenes that are at present exhibiting in different parts of the world, but also from the numerous voyages of discovery that have been undertaken, and the great increase of geographical knowledge that has been thereby obtained. An so great and various have been these improvements, that those Maps which, a few years back, were deservedly esteemed, and now found to be, in many instances, very deficient and erroneous. These considerations induced the Editor to offer to the public attention, as he flattered himself it would be found to contain more information (particularly with respect to those countries that have been recently explored) than any set of Maps heretofore published". Overall the maps attractive, clean, and with good margins. A rare edition of this atlas. Faults: the double-page map of the World "from the Discoveries & Observations made in the Latest Voyages & Travels" (dated 1825) has a split on central fold; the map of England and Wales has a small ink annotation and tear into margin (not into image); the map of Scotland has a brown stain on verso; the map of Ireland has a brown stain upper right just into image; the map of the Russian Empire in Europe & Asia slightly cropped by binder on right margin just affecting text beyond the image; the map of Bavaria has one margin strengthened on the reverse; the map of France divided into Departments has a short tear into the image; the map of Switzerland has a small ink annotation under the imprint; the map of Asia, the fore-margin is reinforced on verso, edge chipped with short tears but not into image; the map of North America has a light blue smudge in Davis's Strait; & the map of South America has a brown mark approx. 1/4 x 3/4 inch within the image & on margin.

        AN INTRODUCTION TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF RARE AND VALUABLE EDITIONS OF THE GREEK AND LATIN CLASSICS

      Printed for Harding & Lepard London: Printed for Harding & Lepard, 1827. Fourth Edition. The Wardington Copy, in Fine Morocco, ofDibdin's Standard Guide to the Classics 292 x 197 mm (11 1/2 x 7 3/4").Two volumes. HANDSOME EARLY 20TH CENTURY BROWN STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, covers with gilt double fillet border, fleuron cornerpieces, raised bands, spines richly gilt with panels dominated by a bold and complex quatrefoil incorporating spade-like tools and with palmette cornerpieces, turn-ins with two gilt fillets, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. With a facsimile of Greek and Latin text from the Complutensian Polyglot and volume I with a specimen leaf laid down, as called for (the leaf taken from the 1826 Pickering Diamond miniature edition of the New Testament). A Large Paper Copy. Front pastedowns with engraved armorial bookplate of John William Pease; rear pastedown with vellum armorial bookplate of Lord Wardington. Lowndes I, 639; Brunet II, 684 ("?ition la plus compl? et la meilleure"); Graesse I, 382. A touch of rubbing to tail edge of boards, one leaf with a thin band of soiling along four inches of the fore edge, light glue stain at lower corner of specimen leaf, endpapers with faint fox spots (isolated minor foxing elsewhere), other trivial imperfections, but generally A VERY FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh, with vast margins, and the decorative bindings with no significant wear. This is the extremely attractive Wardington copy of the fourth and best edition of this quotable bibliographical classic. It is more heavily weighted than the earlier printings toward the Bible and the early Church Fathers and, because of the presence of the Pickering specimen leaf, it also qualifies as the earliest example to our knowledge of a leaf book. This was Dibdin's first work as a bibliographer, and it quickly became the standard guide in English to editions of the classics. Its favorable notice brought him a position as Lord Spencer's librarian, along with ecclesiastical preferment, and he was consequently allowed to pursue his bibliographic career without financial worries. Spencer invited him not only to catalogue, but also to add to, the library at Althorp, and Dibdin (1776-1847) turned it into the finest library in private hands in England. Our impressive Large Paper Copy comes from another of England's fine private libraries, the collection of Lord Wardington (1924-2005), who was, successively, Chairman, Vice-President, and then President of the Friends of the British Library. His grandfather, John William Pease, was a member of the Northumberland banking and business family who amassed a substantial library, and Lord Wardington added greatly to it, particularly important Bibles and atlases. The recent Wardington sales in London have been major bibliophilic events.

        Theory of Systems of Rays [together with the three Supplements].Dublin: R. Graisberry and P. Dixon Hardy, 1828-30-31-1837.

      First edition, journal issue, of these classic papers. "At the age of twenty-three [Hamilton] published the completion of the 'curious discoveries' he had made as a boy of seventeen, Part I of <i>A Theory of Systems of Rays</i>, the great classic which does for optics what Lagrange's <i>Mécanique Analytique</i> does for mechanics and which, in Hamilton's hands, was to be extended to dynamics, putting that fundamental science in what is perhaps its ultimate, perfect form" (E. T. Bell, Men of Mathematics). "In the <i>Theory of Systems of Rays</i> (1827) Hamilton continued the work of his paper <i>On Caustics</i> (1824), but he applied the analysis explicitly to geometrical optics and introduced the characteristic function ... All of Hamilton's work in optics and dynamics depended on a central idea, that of the characteristic function. It was the first of his two great discoveries. The second was the quaternions ..." (DSB).<br/><br/> "At the end of the third supplement, Hamilton applied his characteristic function to the study of Fresnel's wave surface and discovered that for the case of biaxial crystals there exist four conoidal cusps on the wave surface. From this discovery he predicted that a single ray incident in the correct direction on a biaxial crystal should be refracted into a cone in the crystal and emerge as a hollow cylinder. He also predicted that if light were focused into a cone incident on the crystal, it would pass through the crystal as a single ray and emerge as a hollow cone. Hamilton described his discovery to the Royal Irish Academy on 22 October 1832 and asked Humphrey Lloyd, professor of natural philosophy at Trinity College, to attempt an experimental verification ... two months later he wrote to Hamilton that he had found the cone. Hamilton's theoretical prediction of conical refraction and Lloyd's verification caused a sensation. It was one of those rare events when theory predicted a completely unexpected physical phenomenon" (DSB). Lloyd's confirmatory paper appears here on pp. 145-57 of Vol. XVII (with two plates illustrating conical refraction). <br/><br/> "The dynamical papers of Hamilton ... are far better known than his optical papers. Yet they are, historically considered, only a generalisation and development of the method of the characteristic function, evolved in the optical researches. It is possible to attribute the existence of the Hamiltonian method in dynamics to the fact that, at the time when Hamilton was writing on optics, neither the emission theory of light nor the wave theory was unanimously accepted. One of the chief merits in the theory of the characteristic function in optics lies in the fact that whether we regard the propagation of light as due to the motion of particles (obeying the law of least action) or to the propagation of waves (according to the envelope theory of Huygens), the same formal theory applies in each case to the geometry of the light rays, the only difference being in the interpretation of [the characteristic function], which in the former case represents the action integral, and in the latter the time of propagation. Thus Hamilton succeeded in showing the mathematical equivalence of a variational principle (least action) with a law of contact transformation (wave theory). In dynamics, his optical method enabled him to convert a variational principle into a contact transformation" (Papers I xxi). <br/><br/> Vol. XVII also contains (pp. 293-422) Hamilton's <i>Theory of Conjugate Functions, or Algebraic Couples</i>, an important paper on the foundations of algebra in general and of the real and complex numbers in particular. Hamilton's "algebraic couples consisted of all ordered pairs of real numbers, for which [he] defined rules for addition and multiplication. He then demonstrated that these couples constituted a commutative associative division algebra, and that they satisfied the rules of operation of complex numbers. For some mathematicians the theory of number couples was a more significant contribution to mathematics than the discovery of quaternions ..." (DSB).. Pages 69-174 of Vol. XV; 4-61 of Vol. XVI Part I; 93-125 of Vol. XVI Part II; and 1-144 of Vol. XVII of Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy. Four vols, large 4to, uniformly bound in dark green cloth, spines lettered in gilt, floral endpapers. Occasional browning and spotting, but in all fine set.
