        Atlas Universel de GÈographie

      Brussels,: Lithographed by H. Ode, 1827.. Physique, Politique, Statistique et MinÈralogique... SixiËme Partie - OcÈanique.Portfolio, comprising letterpress title-page, key map of the region and 60 numbered lithographic maps measuring 530 x 685 mm.; a fine set with expert contemporary handcolouring, preserved in a contemporary folding case of half diced russia with marbled boards and gilt lettering. A milestone of modern scientific cartography: this is the final volume, comprising Australia, New Zealand and Oceania, of the pioneering large scale atlas produced by Philippe Vandermaelen, founder of the Etablissement GÈographique in Brussels.The atlas is remarkable on several counts, not least its extraordinary scale of 26 miles to the inch. For the first time remote and inaccessible areas of the globe were mapped on a generous uniform scale, reflecting the objective spirit of scientific cartography then superseding the Eurocentric models of the eighteenth century. The atlas was printed lithographically, being the happy outcome of a fruitful collaboration between Vandermaelen and master lithographer Henri Ode.Perhaps the most extraordinary aspect of the atlas was its potential to be formed into an enormous globe with a diameter exceeding seven meters. Indeed, one complete globe was assembled for public display at the Etablissement GÈographique in Brussels. The attention to detail - and considerable challenges posed by the lithographic process - are evident in this volume dedicated to Australia and the Pacific. Although some areas remain uncharted, the sixty maps here included reflect a fastidious collation of information from myriad voyage accounts.Koeman, III, Vdm.I; Phillips, Atlases, 749; Sabin, 43762.

        Battle of Navarin."

      Philhellenic: London " Engraved by Robert William Smart, and Henry Pyall, after drawings made by Sir John Theophilus Lee under the immediate inspection of Capt. Lord Vis. Inglesre"..Printed by: I Fisher. c1830. Pair of aquatints in blue and black of the Battle of Navarino by John Theophilus Lee, Second editions with new dedication : "To His Gracious Majesty King William the Fourth, late Lord High Admiral of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland." [The !st edition was to William as Duke of Clarence.] With text below describing the battle in English and French. One view shows the Combined fleet in the foreground firing on the Turkish line to the rear . Coat of arms below within the text ; marked "Proof copy". The second view, after the action shows the Asia in the centre and the Turkish Admiral's ship and much of the Turkish line in flames or destroyed, sailors being rescued in the foreground. List of the Combined fleet's ships and fire power below. Laid on board; some spotting to sky and blank margins. The Battle Of Navarino was fought off the west coast of the Peloponnesus on October 20th 1827 and effectively ended Turkish resistance to Greek independence with the destruction of the Turkish-Egyptian fleet by the British- Russian- French fleet under Vice Admiral Sir Edward Codrington, hero of Trafalgar. The news of Navarino made Codrington a hero twice over in the eyes of the general British public. But in Whitehall, senior naval and diplomatic echelons were appalled by the outcome of his campaign. It was considered that Codrington had grossly exceeded his instructions by provoking a showdown with the Ottoman fleetInitially, official disapproval of Codrington had to be restrained because of the admiral's huge popularity with the public. The Admiralty's revenge took petty form, such as its refusal, despite repeated requests by Codrington, to pay his crews their traditional prize-money from the sale of captured Ottoman treasure and goods. Meanwhile, Wellington was biding his time until he felt it was politically safe to remove Codrington from the Mediterranean theatre. Finally, in June 1828, the Admiralty announced that Codrington was being relieved of his command (although he remained in acting-command until his replacement arrived in August). Although the King felt obliged by public opinion to grant Codrington the high honour of the Grand Cross of the Bath, the Admiralty's failure to give him another operational command in his remaining decade of service or to promote him to full Admiral until shortly before his retirement from the Navy in 1837, were eloquent testimony to his fall from favour. John Theophilus Lee 1787-1843. Lee joined the Royal Navy in 1796 at the age of 9. He saw action at the Battle of Cape St Vincent in 1797 and then the Battle of the Nile the following year, as a midshipman aboard HMS Swiftsure. He passed for Lieutenant in 1806 and married in 1807. Lee then resigned from the Navy in 1809 and became a civilian attached to the Admiralty as head of the personnel department. Subsequently knighted, Lee retired to Bedhampton, where he wrote a book: Memoirs of the life and services of Sir J Theophilus Lee, of The Elms, Hampshire. He died in Torquay in 1843. Lee's professional painting career started at the Portsmouth Naval Academy from 1800-1803, where several of his drawings were used for engravings appearing in the Naval Chronicle. These included views of Alexandria, the Naval Academy, and the Greenwich Asylum. The Naval Chronicle also printed an engraving after JT Lee of a scene of the aftermath of the Battle of Trafalgar. William IV (William Henry; 21 August 1765 – 20 June 1837) was King of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland and of Hanover from 26 June 1830 until his death. William, the third son of George III and younger brother and successor to George IV, was the last king and penultimate monarch of Britain's House of Hanover. He served in the Royal Navy in his youth and was, both during his reign and afterwards, nicknamed the "Sailor King". He served in North America and the Caribbean, but saw little actual fighting. Since his two older brothers died without leaving legitimate issue, he inherited the throne when he was 64 years old. In 1827 George Canning, the Prime Minister, appointed William, Duke of Clarence, and Heir Presumptive, to the office of Lord High Admiral, which had been in commission (that is, exercised by a board rather than by a single individual) since 1709. While in office, the Duke had repeated conflicts with his Council, which was composed of Admiralty officers. Things finally came to a head in 1828 when the Lord High Admiral put to sea with a squadron of ships, leaving no word of where they were going, and remaining away for ten days. The King, through the Prime Minister, by now Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, requested his resignation; the Duke of Clarence complied. Despite the difficulties the Duke experienced, he did considerable good as Lord High Admiral. He abolished the cat o' nine tails for most offences other than mutiny, attempted to improve the standard of naval gunnery and required regular reports of the condition and preparedness of each ship. He commissioned the first steam warship and advocated more. Philhellenic Battle of Navarino

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.

        Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électrodynamiques.

      Firmin Didot, Paris 1827 - Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électrodynamiques, uniquement déduite de l'expérience, dans lequel se trouvent réunis les Mémoires que M. Ampère a communiqués à l'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'Académie des Sciences de l'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. ---- Norman 50; Honeyman sale 135; DSB I, p.145. FIRST EDITION. "AMPERE'S GREATEST WORK" (DSB). "Having established a noumenal foundation for electrodynamic phenomena, Ampère'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'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'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's "Recherches sur quelques objets d'analyse indéterminée et particulièrement sur le théoreme de Fermat"; 'Laplace's "Mémoires sur le développement de l'anomalie vraie et du rayon vecteur elliptique, en séries ordonnées suivant les puissances de l'excentricité;" as well as Cauchy's "Mémoire sur les développements des fonctions en séries périodiques". "The second part of the volume contains a history of the Academy with Fourier's elegy for William Herschel and Cuvier's for Duhamel." (Roberts &Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, p. 2).

Concordance to the following: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy; Joshua, Judges, Ruth, 1 Samuel (Vulgate 1 Kings) , 2 Samuel (Vulgate 2 Kings) , 1 Kings (Vulgate 3 Kings) , 2 Kings (Vulgate 4 Kings) , 1 Chronicles (Vulgate 1 Paralipomenon) , 2 Chronicles (Vulgate 2 Paralipomenon) , Ezra (Vulgate 1 Esdras) , Nehemiah (Vulgate 2 Esdras) , Esther, Job, Psalms. 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's, Polyglot of 1657, it was printed by Samuel Bagster of Paternoster Row: The first issue [our set] of the ‘Biblia Sacra Polyglotta Bagsteriana’ 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 – 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. Original printed Boards worn and rubbed at edges, outer edges of leaves lightly bumped, spine rebacked, otherwise fresh and clean. Very good condition. (SPEC-39-20) .

He 'witnessed the Company's death agony and demise, and wrote about it. He has a lively and compelling manner.

        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's creation was an instant success. Pirate versions appeared, featuring such figures as 'Bob Tallyho', 'Dick Wildfire' and the like. Print-makers speedily knocked off cuts featuring the various 'stars' and the real-life public flocked to the 'sporting' addresses that Egan had his heroes frequent. There was a translation into French. At least six plays were based on Egan'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's Opera of its day. Moncrieff's production of Tom and Jerry, or, Life in London ran continuously at the Adelphi Theatre for two seasons and it was the dramatist's work as much as the author's that did so much to popularize the book'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. Original printed wrappers, with minor chipping to extremeties, in all a fine and completely unopened copy. Published as pp. 381-408 in 'Mémoires de l'Académie Royale de Copenhague 5me série', vol.
