        Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électrodynamiques...

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1827. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 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, upper and lower wrapper detached, lower wrapper chipped with loss of two letters of headline adverts text) 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). Fine.

        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, 1827. Bindings a little rubbed but attractive; joints wearing but sides firmly held.. Two volumes, octavo, with a folding chart, 13 plates and a folding engraving; contemporary half calf, spines gilt with double labels. First edition, second issue, the first to be properly published: a very rare form of this important book was evidently issued before publication, with the publication date of 1826 on both title-pages. The book was actually 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. Provenance: Edward Charles Stirling (1848-1919, anthropologist on the Horn expedition into Central Australia), with bookplates; John Warren Bakewell (1847-1923, South Australian lawyer), with bookplates; private collection (Sydney).

Housed in custom cloth case. $3800.First edition of the full score and parts of BeethovenÂ’s Fugue in D Major for five stringed instruments.“This piece was written especially for a manuscript collection of BeethovenÂ’s works projected by HaslingerÂ… and was published by him in the fall of 1827 as Opus 137. Beethoven was particularly interested in fugues at the time. ‘To make a fugue requires no particular skill,Â’ he said later to Holz, ‘in my study days I made dozens of them. But the fancy wishes also to assert its privileges, and today a new and really poetical element must be introduced into the old traditional form.Â’ The sketches for the conclusion of the quintet fugue are mixed with notes from Bach and others showing how zealous were his studies in the form at that time” (Scherman and Biancolli, 970). First composed in 1817, but not published until this edition. Kinsky, 417-418. A fine uncut copy, housed in a custom case.

        Atlas Universel de Géographie. Physique, Politique, Statistique et Minéralogique... Sixième Partie - Océanique.

      Brussels: Lithographed by H. Ode, 1827. 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 Géographique 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, 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 Géographique 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.

        Einige Naturhistorische Bemerkungen über die Walle nebst einer Abbildung.

      Greifswald: F.W. Kunicke, 1827. Folio, with engraved plate by G. Eduard Müller, some foxing; a good copy preserved in recent paper boards, blue morocco label to spine. A lovely copy of this rare work on the Minke Whale, here referred to by the now obsolete classification of Balaena rostrata Fabr. var. major. The beauty of this work is the elegant engraving by G. Eduard Müller in Berlin.One of the smaller Baleen Whales, so-called for the plates they use to "filter feed", the Minke was first described by Fabricius in 1780 (hence the classification by Rosenthal), but is better known from Lacépède's 1804 description in his Histoire naturelle des cétacés. As the letterpress explains, this work was prompted by the stranding of the whale on the coast of the Baltic island of Rügen, a chance which gave natural historians a rare opportunity to study the animal in detail.Rosenthal published this rare work as a festschrift for Dr Siegfried Joachim Meyer, the mayor of Greifswald. He also wrote a small monograph on the seal.

        A New System of Chemical Philosophy.

      Manchester: S. Russell for R. Bickerstaff; Russell & Allen for R. Bickerstaff; Executives of S. Russell for G. Wilson, 1808-1810-1827. First edition of Dalton's classic work on the atomic theory of matter, very rare when complete with all three parts in the original boards with the original printed spine labels. "Dalton reconstructed Newton's speculations on the structure of matter, and, applying them in a new form to chemistry, gave Lavoisier's reformation of that science a deeper significance" (PMM). "Dalton's chemical atomic theory was the first to give significance to the relative weights of the ultimate particles of all known compounds, and to provide a quantitative explanation of the phenomena of chemical reaction. Dalton believed that all matter was composed of indestructible and indivisible atoms of various weights, each weight corresponding to one of the chemical elements, and that these atoms remained unchanged during chemical processes. Dalton's work with relative atomic weights prompted him to construct the first periodic table of the elements (in Vol. I, pt. 1), to formulate laws concerning their combination and to provide schematic representations of various possible combinations of atoms. His equation of the concepts "atom" and "chemical element" was of fundamental importance, as it provided the chemist with a new and enormously fruitful model of reality" (Norman). "He developed a system of chemical symbols and a table [plate 4 in part 1] showing the relative weights of the atoms of a list of elements. From his principles he deduced the law of definite proportions and the law of multiple proportions" (Dibner). ?PMM 261; Horblit 22; Dibner 44; Evans 54; Sparrow 47. Dalton (1766-1844) was born of a Quaker family at Eaglesfield, a small village in the English Lake District. As a young boy, he worked in the fields with his older brother, and helped his father in the shop where they wove cloth. In 1776, when only ten years old, he entered the service of Elihu Robinson, a wealthy Quaker, who taught him mathematics. In 1781, after a brief period of teaching in the village school, he joined his brother who was a master at a school in Kendal. In 1793 he moved to Manchester and, in the same year, published Meteorological Observations in which he suggested that the processes of evaporation and condensation were not chemical changes of state but rather changes in the physical form of water. These ideas laid the foundations for his theory that all matter is composed of discrete 'atoms'. At first after he moved to Manchester he taught mathematics and natural philosophy at New College, and began observing the behavior of gases, but after six years he resigned. Thereafter he devoted his life to research, which he financed by giving private tuition. By 1800, Dalton had become the secretary of the Manchester Literary and Philosophical Society (LPS), and in 1805 he presented a series of papers to the society outlining key points about the behaviour of gases in his series of essays, "Experimental Essays on the Constitution of Mixed Gases". He proposed that particles of an elastic fluid or gas were in fact elastic only with particles of their own kind. This extended Boyle's law to mixtures of gases. Dalton's further essay "On the Expansion of Gases by Heat" proposed the law that all elastic fluids expand the same quantity at the same heat. Jacques Charles (1746-1823) and Joseph Louis de Guy-Lussac (1778-1850) arrived at the same notion almost simultaneously. It is in this work that we see interest in the particles of matter themselves, rather than their behaviour, begin to emerge in Dalton's thinking. Atomism itself was not a particularly new idea in the early 19th century. The ancient Greek philosopher, Democritus (460-370 B.C.E.), proposed as part of a materialist philosophy that matter was made of tiny, indivisible pieces. Democritus suggested that there were certain basic elements that could be neither created nor destroyed, but that could be arranged into myriad forms. These atoms possess simple properties only, specifically size, shape, and mass. Anything else that we perceive, such as colour, is merely the result of interaction between the particles. In the 17th century, Isaac Newton hypothesized that matter was made up of atoms--small, hard homogeneous spheres adhering to one another through the gravitational force they exerted. The notion that matter was composed of atoms, and that there existed pure substances made of only one kind of atom (elements), was fairly common during the later Enlightenment period and into the 19th century. As a member of the Manchester LPS, Dalton was certainly familiar with these ideas. Dalton came to the notion of atomic structure only gradually, at first as a physical concept forced on him by his study of the atmosphere, heat, and gases. Dalton's notebooks and papers were destroyed during the bombing of Manchester during World War II, so historians of science perforce rely on earlier generations for their reporting of Dalton's day-to-day investigations. In his 1802-1804 notebooks, Dalton records on September 6, 1803, a table of the relative weights of the atoms of several substances, including water, carbon dioxide, and ammonia. With his assumption that matter always combines in the simplest possible manner, he used this chemical analysis to arrive at the idea that the gases he observed were made of atoms of differing weights, of different elements. Extending this idea to matter more generally, Dalton formulated his theory of atomism, which contains four basic parts. The first part is that chemical elements are made of atoms. These atoms are minute, discrete, indestructible particles invisible to the technology of the day. Dalton's idea that an element is a chemical substance that cannot be further reduced to atoms derives from Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier (1743-94). While Dalton's atoms are frequently imagined as featureless balls, Dalton never ruled out the possibility of subatomic structure. The second and third parts of Dalton's theory of chemical atomism holds that the atoms of an element are identical to each other and different from those of other elements. This was Dalton's law of constant composition. Although chemists had long claimed that different elements had different weights, no one had been able to work out the values of those weights. Dalton was the first to do so. The fourth part of his theory held that elements combine in small whole-number ratios. The relative number of atoms in a given compound is consistent from sample to sample. This explained Joseph Louis Proust's (1754-1826) law of definite proportions (1797). Water, for example, will always consist of two parts hydrogen and one part oxygen, a simple ratio of 2:1. This idea likewise explained Dalton's own law of multiple proportions, derived from his observation that some atoms occur in different proportions with the same elements. For example, carbon and oxygen can produce carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide. The masses of one element combine with a fixed mass of a second element. Thus, the amount of carbon changes but always in relation to the same mass of oxygen. In 1808 Dalton began the publication of his great work, A New System of Chemical Philosophy, in which he developed the ideas he had been working on since 1801 concerning heat and chemical combination and laid the foundation for systematic chemical notation by graphically representing the arrangements of atoms in compounds. Dalton explains the publication strategy of his New System in his Preface: he first intended 'to publish it intire in one volume', but changed his mind in order to 'exhibit and elucidate ... those primary Laws, which seem to obtain in regard to heat, and to chemical combinations' as swiftly as possible, being warned by colleagues that 'the interests of science, and his own reputation might suffer by delay'. Since his exposition of 'the doctrine of heat, and the general principles of Chemical Synthesis, are in a good degree independent of the future details, there can no detriment arise to the author, or inconvenience to his readers, in submitting what is already prepared, to the inspection of the public.' Hence Dalton put into print the essential 'Part I' of his New System in May 1808, reserving the 'details' of his experiments and analysis for two years: that supplement, entitled 'Part II', appeared in 1810, with a prefatory apology for its two-and-a-half year delay, and with its pagination continued from that of Part I. A very belated third part (described as 'Volume II, Part I', but effectively a new work under the old title) saw print only in 1827, by which time 'the theory had borne such widespread fruit that Dalton's own conclusions were almost all out-of-date' (PMM). Dalton's theory was not universally or immediately accepted. One critic wrote, "Atoms are round bits of wood invented by Mr. Dalton." More damagingly, Sir Humphrey Davy (1778-1829), easily the most famous English chemist of the age, described Dalton as a rough experimenter who could usually be counted on to find the results he sought, relying on his head rather than empiricism. Dalton wrote in the preface to the second part of the first volume of his New System that he had so often been misled by the results of others that he was determined to trust only what he verified. To others, however, this too often looked like a lack of receptivity to other, perhaps contradictory, ideas. Despite such charges, Dalton gradually gained recognition and even honour for his contribution. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1822, and eventually a foreign associate of the Paris Academy of Sciences. In 1833, the British government granted him a pension of £150, which was doubled in 1836. In the mid-19th century, this was a lavish sum. But perhaps the greatest honour is this: The units of atomic mass, while now called unified atomic mass units (amus), were once called "daltons".

        Carte de l'achiplel des iles Gilbert...

      Paris: Arthus Bertrand, 1827. Map measuring 610 x 440 mm. (sheet size). Delicately engraved chart of the Gilbert Islands in present-day Micronesia, from the official atlas of the French scientific expedition of 1822-1825 under the command of Louis-Isidor Duperrey. The Duperrey voyage is of great importance to the history of European contact with the indigenous peoples of Micronesia. It was also the first time accurate maps of the region were produced.The expedition left France in the Coquille in August 1822, and after venturing through the Pacific and stopping at New Zealand they reached the Gilbert islands in May 1824. Overall, the experience of French sailors and scientists of the Duperrey expedition in Micronesia was peaceful (so much so that two sailors chose to remain on the Chuuck islands rather than remain aboard the Coquille and return to Europe). This contact was greatly different to earlier landfalls made by the Spanish, which were characterised by violence and pillaging of the native villages.For a full description of Duperrey voyage in this region see Francis Hezel The First Taint of Civilization. A history of the Caroline and Marshall Islands in pre-Colonial days (pages 95-102). Fine.

        Atlas Universel de Géographie. Physique, Politique, Statistique et Minéralogique... Sixième Partie - Océanique.

      Brussels: Lithographed by H. Ode, 1827. 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 Géographique 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, 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 Géographique 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.

In precedenza vicino alle teorie liberali, si è definitivamente fuori se si considera che il liberalismo economico, in particolare incoraggiando la concorrenza porta ad abbassare i costi di produzione e dei salari per i lavoratori incidentali. Di fronte alle critiche sollevate dai suoi punti di vista, Sismondi offre una seconda edizione del suo testo e indicano nel bando non sono stati stupiti alla reception del suo libro "Mi sono sorpreso al punto di non aver fatto un'impressione più profondo [...] sono stato attaccando l'ortodossia, infine, filosofia aziendale pericoloso come nella religione.

Essayiste politique et économiste suisse, Jean de Sismondi (1773-1842) marque la pensée économique du début du XVIIIème siècle en publiant les Nouveaux principes d'économie politique : avec ce texte, il prône une nécessaire redistribution des richesses entre toutes les couches de la population. Auparavant proche des théories libérales, il s'en détache définitivement en considérant que le libéralisme économique, en favorisant notamment la concurrence, entraîne la baisse des coûts de production et incidemment des salaires des travailleurs. Face aux nombreuses critiques suscitées par ses vues, Sismondi propose une seconde édition de son texte et indique dans l'Avertissement ne pas avoir été étonné de l'accueil fait à son ouvrage « Je ne m'étonnai point de ne pas avoir fait une impression plus profonde [...] j'attaquais une orthodoxie, enfin, entreprise dangereuse en philosophie comme en religion ». Mais fort du succès de ses théories dans les années ayant suivi la première édition, il s'engage dans cette nouvelle édition à défendre à nouveau « la science qui se charge de veiller au bonheur de l'espèce humaine ». Texte de référence pour la critique du libéralisme économique.
