        L.A.S. d'Adolphe Quetelet à Louis-François Benoiston de Châteauneuf

      - 4 p. in-4 [205 x 250 mm] "Bruxelles, le 2 avril 1828, , 4 p. in-4 [205 x 250 mm], trace de cachet à la cire, cachet postal en date du 4 avril 1828 et cachets postaux de la poste de Bruxelles, Très intéressante lettre qui témoigne des échanges entre deux pères de la statistique sociale, Benoiston de Chateauneuf (1776-1856) et Adolphe Quetelet (1796-1874). "J’ai reçu avec infiniment de reconnaissance votre ouvrage sur la colonisation de condamnés que vous avez bien voulu m’adresser (.) Votre travail ne pouvait m’arriver plus à propos, je m’occupe en ce moment de recherches sur les tribunaux pour lesquelles [sic] notre gouvernement a bien voulu faire mettre à ma disposition tous les documens du ministère de la justice (.) je me ferai un véritable plaisir de pouvoir vous offrir de mon côté les documens que j’aurai pu recueillir. Comme ce travail a été demandé par notre Roi, et qu’il contiendra sur les loteries et sur les lenteurs des tribunaux des observations qu’on ne désirera peut-être pas de voir rendre publiques, je ne sais si je le ferai imprimer en entier, les documens que l’on m’a confiés étant encore secrets (.) P.S. Je vous prierais, Monsieur, de vouloir bien me rappeler au souvenir de M. Poisson chez qui j’ai eu l’honneur de me rencontrer avec vous, il y a 5 ans (.)" La correspondance entre Benoiston de Châteauneuf et Quetelet est bien attestée ; en 1928, Collart faisait état de 10 lettres échangées entre les deux savants entre 1823, date où ils se rencontrent à Paris, et 1853. Ces lettres sont inscrites en 1964 dans l’Inventaire de la correspondance d'Adolphe Quetelet déposée à l’Académie royale de Belgique, dressé par Liliane Wellens-de Donder (n° 351). Notre lettre, par le ton qu'emploie l'auteur, démontre entièrement l'importance qu'il accordait aux travaux de Benoiston de Châteauneuf. En outre, elle confirme nos connaissances des sources qu’utilisait Quetelet, qui faisait rarement état de ses références, et elle évoque le séjour qu'il fit à Paris, au cours duquel il fréquenta la société savante du temps. Enfin, il mentionne l'éventualité d'une publication ; celle-ci sera finalement imprimée à l'issue d'une lecture devant l'Académie Royale de Belgique le 6 décembre 1828 (Recherches statistiques sur le Royaume des Pays-Bas. Bruxelles, impr. Hayez, 1829), et dans laquelle Quetelet précisera, en introduction : "Ce Mémoire dont les principaux documens ont été puisés à des sources très-authentiques, n'était pas destiné d'abord à être rendu public. S.M. le Roi des Pays-Bas, ayant bien voulu depuis m'autoriser à le livrer à l'impression, je le présente ici comme faisant suite à quelques essais sur la statistique que j'ai déjà publiés précédemment. Je crois devoir faire mention de cette circonstance, qui n'est pas étrangère à la la confiance que peut mériter mon travail." En 1828, à date de rédaction de la lettre, Quetelet en est au début de ses recherches dans le domaine des statistiques sociales ; auparavant, en 1827, il avait publié des Recherches sur la population [ ] les prisons, les dépôts de mendicité, etc dans le Royaume des Pays-Bas (Bruxelles 1827), qui seront suivies, en 1828, de Recherches statistiques citées plus haut, puis de Recherches sur le penchant au crime aux différents âges (1832) et encore de son mémoire sur la Physique sociale en 1835. Ses travaux aboutiront en 1841 à la création du premier bureau statistique gouvernemental au monde, la Commission Centrale de Statistique. Pour plusieurs raisons, Quetelet est considéré comme le père de la statistique moderne, en premier lieu grâce à sa méthode d’étude, qui permet l'application de la statistique aux phénomènes humains au moyen de rapprochements et de comparaisons, puis au moyen de la représentation des résultats au travers de courbes et de formules mathématiques. Il fut le premier à joindre l’étude des faits humains pour eux-mêmes et l’utilisation systématique et rationnelle des données numériques et il est à l’origine du concept d'homme moyen, qui lui [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        HISTORY OF THE LIFE AND VOYAGES OF CHRISTOPHER COLUMBUS

      London: John Murray, 1828. 4 volumes. The first edition, preceding the American edition (and exceeding it in bulk by one volume) With two large engraved folding maps. 8vo, beautifully bound in contemporary dark green straight-grain morocco, beautifully tooled large gilt panels on each cover incorporating multi-fillet lines interlinked by elaborate arabesque floral devices at the corners, the spines beautifully gilt with elaborate panels between raised bands, the bands decorated with Regency gilt tools, decorative gilt and blind tooling abounds, a.e.g. XII, 473; (6), 490; viii, 413; vii, 489 pp. An especially fine and unusually handsome set, beautifully preserved. IMPORTANT FIRST EDITION IN A BEAUTIFUL PERIOD BINDING. This was a scholarly but popular biography based primarily on the work of the Spanish historian Navarrete. Navarrete had published his work on Columbus, which contained a number of previously unknown and significant documents. However, Irving felt that "the whole presented rather a mass of rich materials for history, than a history itself...[and] the sight of disconnected papers and official documents is apt to be repulsive to the general reader, who seeks for clear and continued narrative." In fact, he felt that nearly every account had been incomplete while many important documents and manuscripts ignored. Thus, he hoped to offer a more rigorous and yet accessible account. Written while Irving was a diplomatic attaché in Spain (1826-29), "it was the most painstaking effort of Irving's life, and it won him election to the 'Real Academia de la Historia', the friendship of Navarrete, and a literary reputation in Spain where the work is still quoted respectfully" (DAB). The American edition, published the same year in three volumes, had only one map. BAL A testament to Irving?s often-neglected gifts as a historian.

        Geographische-statistisch und historische Charte von Arkansas

      Weimar: im Verlage des geographischen Instituts, 1828. Copper-engraved map, with original outline colour, in excellent condition. The highly important first printed map to focus on Arkansas This map depicts the Arkansas Territory, formed in 1819, as one of the jurisdictions carved out of the massive Louisiana Purchase. It includes all of the lands making up the modern state of Arkansas, as well as the Indian Lands that now form the main portion of Oklahoma. The Indian Lands were not divided from Arkansas Territory until 1828, the same year that this map was printed. The present map is remarkable in that it is the first ever printed map to focus on Arkansas itself. The portrayal of the territory is far more advanced and of a larger scale than that depicted on the map that appeared in Carey & Lea's American Atlas (Philadelphia, 1822) that relegated the depiction of Arkansas to a small lower portion of the map. The present map is also an important document of the early development of Arkansas, showing the fledgling settlements that hug the Arkansas and Mississippi Rivers, such as Helena and Little Rock, the future state capitol. The territory features nine named and one unnamed county while the vast Indian Lands to the west are inhabited by the indigenous Choctaw nation and the Cherokee peoples who were exiled there from their native lands in the southern Appalachians. The territory of Arkansas was organized in 1819, and included both present day Arkansas and presend day Oklahoma. The southern border between what is now Texas and the territory was the Red River, as it is today. The search for suitable cotton growing land led settlers from southeastern Arkansas into Texas, and in 1828, the year this map was published, the Mexican sent a fact-finding mission to Texas to assess the growing "Anglo" problem in Eastern Texas. Interestingly, Arkansas became a state in 1836, the same year Texas became a Republic.

        September

      London: Published by Dean & Co. Threadneedle Street, 1828. Colour printed aquatint. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of being backed with archival supporting sheet. A number of skillfully mended tears along the edges not extending into image. Bottom right corner has been repaired. Trimmed within the plate mark on all sides. Image size: 15 1/2 x 20 3/4 inches. A charming aquatint of a hunting dog named September, by the accomplished English engraver Henry Pyall. Henry Pyall was born in 1795, but first gained recognition as a publisher in 1820. By 1822, he had formed a publishing house in London with the engraver George Hunt. Pyall soon established himself as a successful aquatint engraver, producing many plates for the publishing houses of Ackermann & Co. and Thomas McLean. Throughout his career he reproduced mainly sporting and animal pictures and his soft, even technique made him an eminently successful printmaker. This charming print of a hunting dog named September is one of a pair of aquatints, the companion piece entitled "October," after paintings by Francis Calcraft Turner. This beautiful print is a marvelous example of Pyall's superior technique and keen compositional eye. Lane, Sporting Aquatints and Their Engravers, Vol. 1, p. 82, no. 1.

        Itinéraire Pittoresque du Fleuve Hudson et des parties latérales de l'Amérique du Nord

      Paris: Henri Gaugain et Cie, 1828. 3 volumes. (text: 2 vols., quarto, 13 1/8 x 10 inches; atlas: folio, 13 x 18 1/2 inches). Text: half-titles. Atlas: pictorial lithographed upper wrapper bound as a title page, by Georges after Smith, 54 fine uncoloured lithographed views after Milbert by Deroy, V. Adam, Villeneuve, and others, all the plates on india paper mounted, 1 hand-coloured double-page lithographed map after H. Toquet. Expertly bound to style in dark blue half straight-grained morocco over contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, the flat spines divided into six compartments with double gilt rules, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, the others with simple repeat decoration in gilt First edition. A fine set including an outstanding series of American views, which `constitute a unique and valuable record' (Sherman) of the natural splendors to be seen along the Hudson, in New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania and Niagara. `Milbert sailed from Havre on the 1st of September, 1815, and arrived in New York on the 20th of the following October. He settled in New York, where his first work was the making of several drawings of the mechanism of steamboats. He soon, however, turned to portrait-painting, and taught drawing. Milbert was later attached to the commission in charge of the leveling preparatory to the establishment of the Champlain Canal. In this connection he made a journey in one of the large steamers plying upon the Hudson. It was on this voyage that he collected much of the material for his Itinéraire Pittoresque. A few years after his arrival in New York he was charged by M. Hyde de Neuville, the French Minister, with the preparation of certain collections of natural history specimens, destined for the King's Garden in Paris. In his report on this collection, which is printed in full in his Itinéraire Pittoresque , he styles himself "Voyageur, Naturaliste du Gouvernement et Correspondant du Museum d'Histoire Naturelle au Jardin du Roi." It was through Milbert's efforts that the first living specimen of the American buffalo was introduced into France. On pages 33-6 of the first volume of text is given a very interesting description of the architecture and interior arrangement of the private houses of New York at this period' (Stokes Iconography of New York ) Most of the plates depict scenes in New York State, including New York City, West Point, Albany, Troy, Saratoga Springs and Niagara Falls. This set includes the rare 54th plate that is often lacking, as well as the fine coloured folding map of the northeastern United States. The area covered goes west to Ohio and the Great Lakes, and south to Virginia, with a significant portion of Canada, also included is an inset of the Hudson River region. Fine views are included as well of Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland and Virginia. 'As an artist, Milbert loved to paint American landscapes, particularly those which showed the Hudson, "King of Rivers," flowing majestically through the mountains ... boundless curiosity, plus a contagious enthusiasm and a delightful sense of humor, make the journal as lively a document today as when it was penned a hundred and forty years ago. The pictures of what he saw, as of the time he drew them, constitute a unique and valuable record.' (Sherman).

        James Buchanan makes an early reference to William R. King, long rumored to have been his gay lover: " W. King called upon me on Friday last? "

      Washington, April 21, 1828. 7.75" x 10". "Autograph Letter Signed, ""James Buchanan,"" as Congressman, 1 page 7.75"" x 10"", Washington, April 21, 1828 to W. John G. Kummer in Lititz, Pennsylvania concerning several debt claims. Expected mailing folds, else very fine condition.""W[illiam]. King called upon me on Friday last & informed me that he entertained no hope of obtaining the any part of the claims against Mrs Turner or Mr Hollingshead; but he expects that at some future time the account against Eliza Holzman may be collected. He had not seen Mrs. Stewart. In the course of the conversation he admitted that he had received $70 for the Institution but from where he did not recollect: and he has promised to pay me that sum before the close of the session. I would suggest to you the propriety of sending me an order on him for that amount; as he will probably require an authority from you before he will pay me the money."" Buchanan's letter makes an early reference to William R. King (1786-1853) the North Carolina Senator and later Vice President under Franklin Pierce, long-rumored to be James Buchanan's lover. In 1819 Buchanan had been briefly engaged to Anne Coleman, the daughter of a prominent Pennsylvania iron manufacturer. She eventually broke off the engagement the same year and died soon afterward?"and Buchanan remained a bachelor for the remainder of his life. Buchanan enjoyed a close relationship with William R. King, who was also his political mentor?"having an additional decade of experience in Washington under his belt. The two shared a boardinghouse from 1834 to 1844 and were an inseparable pair?"attending most Washington social functions together. Buchanan even went as far as to adopt King's mannerisms and his romanticized view of southern life and culture. Andrew Jackson was purported to have mockingly referred to the pair ""Miss Nancy"" and ""Aunt Fancy."" After King departed Washington in 1844 to become the U.S. Minister to France, Buchanan lamented his solitude to his close friend Cornelia Roosevelt in May 1844: ""I am now 'solitary and alone,' having no companion in the house with me. I have gone a wooing to several gentlemen, but have not succeeded with any one of them. I feel that it is not good for a man to be alone, and [I] should not be astonished to find myself married to some old maid who can nurse me when I am sick, provide good dinners for me when I am well, and not expect from me any very ardent or romantic affection."" (Watson, Affairs of State: The untold story of Presidential Love, Sex and Scandal, 1789-1900, 2012, 246)."

        Monandrian Plants of the Order Scitamineae, chiefly drawn from living specimens in the Botanic Garden at Liverpool

      Liverpool: printed by George Smith, 1828. Large folio. (21 1/4 x 16 1/2 inches). 112 lithographic plates by Hullmandell, hand-coloured by George Graves, after Thomas Allport, Rebecca Miller, Margaret Roscoe, Mrs James Dixon, Ellen Yates, Emily Fletcher, Mary Waln and unidentified "native artists", 3 uncoloured lithographic illustrations. Contemporary green morocco gilt, covers with wide gilt border made up from fillets and a decorative roll tool surrounding a large central arabesque blocked in blind, expertly rebacked to style, the spine in six compartments with raised bands, lettered in the second, the others with repeat decoration in gilt, gilt turn-ins, pink glazed endpapers, gilt edges Provenance: James Stamford Caldwell (1787-1858, Linley Wood, Talke, Staffordshire, armorial bookplate) A fine copy (with a family connection) of this spectacular work, limited to 150 copies. Roscoe, a talented member of a talented family, was a banker from Liverpool and supporter of the liberal arts. This work, his masterpiece, was originally issued in 15 parts. The focus of the work is on a selection that is now considered part of the Zingiberales order of flowering plants. The order, which is almost exclusively tropical in origin, includes the canna liliies, arrowroot, ginger and tumeric. Roscoe provides 1 or 2 pages of text for each specimen, giving the plants binomial, a technical description followed by a fuller more general description, and ending with "observations" (notes on where the plant is from, who has described it previously, and often when the drawing of the plant was made) and "references" (brief explanations of the small numbered dissections found on each plate). The characteristic leaf shapes and flower-sprays provide the numerous artists of the work with some spectacular originals to work from. Helpfully, Roscoe identifies all but one of the artists, with the majority of the images having been provided by Thomas Allport. The plates are important relatively early lithographs which are attributed by Roscoe to George Graves, but they are almost certainly "actually printed by Hullmandell, though Graves may have placed the commission for Roscoe" (John Collins writing in the Plesch catalogue). Collins earlier notes that although Graves specialised in colouring natural history plates, he is not known as a lithographer. This copy is from the library of James Stamford Caldwell, the brother of Roscoe's daughter-in-law Hannah, wife of Roscoe's eldest son. Dunthorne 267; Great Flower Books (1990) p.133; Johnston 948; Nissen BBI 1677; Stafleu & Cowan 9505.

        Cours complet d'économie politique pratique.

      Paris: Rapilly, 1828-29 - 6 volumes, octavo (200 x 121 mm). Contemporary French calf, spines decoratively tooled in gilt and black (labels renewed), single-line gilt border on sides enclosing blind roll-tool border, marbled edges and endpapers. Sides a little rubbed, spine of volume VI chipped at head. An attractive set in a period binding. First edition of Say's lectures. Though Say ranks with Sismondi and Cournot in the originality of his contributions to economics, his reputation has suffered from his being put down primarily as an exponent of Adam Smith. Schumpeter, who calls his work "the most important of the links in the chain that leads from Cantillon and Turgot to Walras" offers convincing arguments to prove that Say does indeed belong to the French tradition. "Jean-Baptiste Say's Cours complet d'économie politique pratique was designed to 'place these [economic] abstractions within the reach of everyone' and teemed with practical illustrations of how trade restrictions increased the cost of items such as Jamaican rum, ploughs, bed sheets or curtains. Another notable feature of the Cours complet was the confirmation of Say's reappraisal of the British model since his condemnation of Britain's colonial and economic policies in De l'Angleterre et des Anglais (1815). The book reproduced nearly in extensio Say's 1824 article in defence of British rule in India. The print run of the first four volumes of the Cours complet was 2,300, and the first volume sold 700 copies in three months. These figures were respectable. But Say was disappointed, and it is noteworthy that a second edition had to wait until 1840. Despite the lucidity of Say's prose, the price - nearly 40 francs for the six volumes - and the length - nearly 3,000 pages - limited its impact as an instrument of popularization" (David Todd, Free Trade and its Enemies in France, 1814-1851, Cambridge 2015). Goldsmiths' 25468.

        Execution of William Corder, For the Murder of Mary Martin in the Red.

      1828. "Young Lovers All I Pray Attend, While I Relate a Deed, The Bare Recital of the Same, Will Make Your Hearts to Bleed." [Broadside]. [Execution]. [Suffolk, England]. Execution of William Corder, For the Murder of Mary Martin in the Red Barn. [London]: Printed by J. Catnach, 2 Monmouth-Court, 7 Dials, [1828]. 15" x 20" broadside. Text in five columns separated by black rules, five large woodcut vignettes, three at top of text, two below, depicting moments in the history of the crime. All but the hanging scene have captions. Account concludes with a long verse poem. Moderate toning, horizontal and vertical fold-lines, some edgewear and a few chips and minor tears along fold-lines, otherwise fine. * "The Red Barn Murder was a notorious homicide committed in Polstead, Suffolk, England in 1827. A young woman, Maria Marten, was shot dead by her lover, William Corder. The two had arranged to meet at the Red Barn, a local landmark, before eloping to Ipswitch. Maria was never heard from again. Corder fled the scene and, although he sent Martin's family letters claiming she was in good health, her body was later discovered buried in the barn after her stepmother spoke of having dreamed about the murder. Corder was tracked down in London, where he had married and started a new life. He was brought back to Suffolk, and after a well-publicized trial, found guilty of murder. He was hanged at Bury St. Edmonds in 1828; a huge crowd witnessed Corder's execution. The story provoked numerous articles in newspapers, and songs and plays. The village where the crime had taken place had become a tourist attraction and the barn was stripped by souvenir hunters.": Wikipedia.

        BELTRAMI'S "PILGRIMAGE," AND THE QUARTERLY REVIEW

      [London, 1828. Dbd. Minute dust soiling, faint foxing, some leaves loose. Very good. A self-published work, Beltrami's defense against his critics. This pamphlet is the second such rant by Beltrami. In an earlier pamphlet he responded to criticism leveled against the first edition of his LA DECOUVERTE DES SOURCES DU MISSISSIPPI ET DE LA RIVIERE SANGLANTE DESCRIPTION DU COURS ENTIER DU MISSISSIPPI... (New Orleans, 1824), his account of a voyage to the headwaters of the Mississippi with the Long expedition. Chief among that criticism, which appeared in the QUARTERLY REVIEW, was that Beltrami did not include a map in his narrative. Despite his defiant response, the second edition (London, 1828) included a map. Here Beltrami responds to criticism of a more general nature, dealing with certain minor details of his narrative. Good insight into the explorer's petulant character. Quite rare. Not on OCLC.

        AN ACCOUNT OF SOME OF THE BLOODY DEEDS OF GENERAL JACKSON [caption title]

      [N.p., 1828. Old fold lines. Light edge wear and foxing. Three small, mostly marginal, open tears, with the loss of parts of five lines of text near the bottom left, and just touching two coffin illustrations elsewhere. Good. One of the largest of the infamous "Coffin Broadsides" attacking Andrew Jackson in the presidential campaign of 1828. There was considerable mud-slinging between the Jackson and Adams camps during that campaign, which eventually saw the defeat of incumbent John Quincy Adams and the election of Andrew Jackson. Across the top of the present broadside are six woodcut coffins bearing the names of six militiamen shot on Jackson's orders during the War of 1812; an account of their wrongful execution follows. Below that there are more accounts of Jackson's evil and murderous deeds, including seven regular soldiers shot on Jackson's orders prior to the six militiamen (complete with six more coffin woodcuts); the tale of another soldier unfairly executed (another woodcut coffin); and a brief account of some Indian prisoners executed on Jackson's orders (four more coffins). The bottom portion includes a testimonial by Thomas Hart Benton, who himself had fought a duel with Jackson. The verso of the broadside contains a full-page account of the trial of the six militiamen who are the focus of the coffin broadside, reprinting court-martial proceedings dated between Nov. 21, 1814 and Jan. 22, 1815. The "Coffin Handbill" exists in several formats, of which this is one of the largest, and one of the only versions to contain the trial text on the verso. Not in Shoemaker, and only two other copies located in OCLC.

        Cours complet d'économie politique pratique.

      Paris: Rapilly,, 1828-29. 6 volumes, octavo (200 x 121 mm). Contemporary French calf, spines decoratively tooled in gilt and black (labels renewed), single-line gilt border on sides enclosing blind roll-tool border, marbled edges and endpapers. Sides a little rubbed, spine of volume VI chipped at head. An attractive set in a period binding. First edition of Say's lectures. Though Say ranks with Sismondi and Cournot in the originality of his contributions to economics, his reputation has suffered from his being put down primarily as an exponent of Adam Smith. Schumpeter, who calls his work "the most important of the links in the chain that leads from Cantillon and Turgot to Walras" offers convincing arguments to prove that Say does indeed belong to the French tradition. "Jean-Baptiste Say's Cours complet d'économie politique pratique was designed to 'place these [economic] abstractions within the reach of everyone' and teemed with practical illustrations of how trade restrictions increased the cost of items such as Jamaican rum, ploughs, bed sheets or curtains... Another notable feature of the Cours complet was the confirmation of Say's reappraisal of the British model since his condemnation of Britain's colonial and economic policies in De l'Angleterre et des Anglais (1815). The book reproduced nearly in extensio Say's 1824 article in defence of British rule in India... The print run of the first four volumes of the Cours complet was 2,300, and the first volume sold 700 copies in three months. These figures were respectable. But Say was disappointed, and it is noteworthy that a second edition had to wait until 1840. Despite the lucidity of Say's prose, the price - nearly 40 francs for the six volumes - and the length - nearly 3,000 pages - limited its impact as an instrument of popularization" (David Todd, Free Trade and its Enemies in France, 1814-1851, Cambridge 2015).

        QUETELET (Adolphe)

      le 1204 - "Bruxelles, le 2 avril 1828, , 4 p. in-4 [205 x 250 mm], trace de cachet à la cire, cachet postal en date du 4 avril 1828 et cachets postaux de la poste de Bruxelles, Très intéressante lettre qui témoigne des échanges entre deux pères de la statistique sociale, Benoiston de Chateauneuf (1776-1856) et Adolphe Quetelet (1796-1874). "J’ai reçu avec infiniment de reconnaissance votre ouvrage sur la colonisation de condamnés que vous avez bien voulu m’adresser (.) Votre travail ne pouvait m’arriver plus à propos, je m’occupe en ce moment de recherches sur les tribunaux pour lesquelles [sic] notre gouvernement a bien voulu faire mettre à ma disposition tous les documens du ministère de la justice (.) je me ferai un véritable plaisir de pouvoir vous offrir de mon côté les documens que j’aurai pu recueillir. Comme ce travail a été demandé par notre Roi, et qu’il contiendra sur les loteries et sur les lenteurs des tribunaux des observations qu’on ne désirera peut-être pas de voir rendre publiques, je ne sais si je le ferai imprimer en entier, les documens que l’on m’a confiés étant encore secrets (.) P.S. Je vous prierais, Monsieur, de vouloir bien me rappeler au souvenir de M. Poisson chez qui j’ai eu l’honneur de me rencontrer avec vous, il y a 5 ans (.)" La correspondance entre Benoiston de Châteauneuf et Quetelet est bien attestée ; en 1928, Collart faisait état de 10 lettres échangées entre les deux savants entre 1823, date où ils se rencontrent à Paris, et 1853. Ces lettres sont inscrites en 1964 dans l’Inventaire de la correspondance d'Adolphe Quetelet déposée à l’Académie royale de Belgique, dressé par Liliane Wellens-de Donder (n° 351). Notre lettre, par le ton qu'emploie l'auteur, démontre entièrement l'importance qu'il accordait aux travaux de Benoiston de Châteauneuf. En outre, elle confirme nos connaissances des sources qu’utilisait Quetelet, qui faisait rarement état de ses références, et elle évoque le séjour qu'il fit à Paris, au cours duquel il fréquenta la société savante du temps. Enfin, il mentionne l'éventualité d'une publication ; celle-ci sera finalement imprimée à l'issue d'une lecture devant l'Académie Royale de Belgique le 6 décembre 1828 (Recherches statistiques sur le Royaume des Pays-Bas. Bruxelles, impr. Hayez, 1829), et dans laquelle Quetelet précisera, en introduction : "Ce Mémoire dont les principaux documens ont été puisés à des sources très-authentiques, n'était pas destiné d'abord à être rendu public. S.M. le Roi des Pays-Bas, ayant bien voulu depuis m'autoriser à le livrer à l'impression, je le présente ici comme faisant suite à quelques essais sur la statistique que j'ai déjà publiés précédemment. Je crois devoir faire mention de cette circonstance, qui n'est pas étrangère à la la confiance que peut mériter mon travail." En 1828, à date de rédaction de la lettre, Quetelet en est au début de ses recherches dans le domaine des statistiques sociales ; auparavant, en 1827, il avait publié des Recherches sur la population [ ] les prisons, les dépôts de mendicité, etc dans le Royaume des Pays-Bas (Bruxelles 1827), qui seront suivies, en 1828, de Recherches statistiques citées plus haut, puis de Recherches sur le penchant au crime aux différents âges (1832) et encore de son mémoire sur la Physique sociale en 1835. Ses travaux aboutiront en 1841 à la création du premier bureau statistique gouvernemental au monde, la Commission Centrale de Statistique. Pour plusieurs raisons, Quetelet est considéré comme le père de la statistique moderne, en premier lieu grâce à sa méthode d’étude, qui permet l'application de la statistique aux phénomènes humains au moyen de rapprochements et de comparaisons, puis au moyen de la représentation des résultats au travers de courbes et de formules mathématiques. Il fut le premier à joindre l’étude des faits humains pour eux-mêmes et l’utilisation systématique et rationnelle des données numériques et il est à l’origine du concept d'homme moyen, qui lui permet de" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Treatise of Zodiacal Physiognomy, illustrated with engravings of heads and features.

      8vo. London: for the author and sold by Longman, 1828. 8vo, iv, 60pp. Engraved frontispiece (plate 2) and 5 plates (complete) by John Linnell after Varley with contributions by William Blake including a self-portrait and three plates picture heads based on Blake's famous Visionary Heads. Original boards, covers re-attached, plates cleaned, restoration by Court Benson. A beautifully restored copy of this great rarity, enclosed in a folding box. First (and only) edition of this elusive Blake item, first issue of the ?Cancer Gemini and Ghost of a flea? plate before the addition of ?see p. 54?: described by Gilchrist in 1863 as 'that singular and now very scarce book', and by Michael Rossetti as 'a precious and almost undiscoverable brochure'. Presentation copy inscribed ?M.A. Shee Esq. with the author?s best respects.? Shee was the president of the Royal Academy and a strong supporter of Blake?s illustrations to ?The Grave? in the prospectus for which he is mentioned as a subscriber and patron. This is only the second copy I have ever had. The BL copy is imperfect, lacking the final Blake plate. Although the printed front wrapper (not this copy) states 'No. 1 To be completed in four parts', no more parts appeared, perhaps because Varley was so constantly in debt. His publication had much to do with the contemporary fascination for physiognomy as well as astrology. Besides Blake's figure of the constellation 'Cancer', which may be a caricature self-portrait of Blake, it includes 'the most curious of all these visionary heads, and the most talked about' (Gilchrist I, p. 254) , 'the ghost of a flea', seen with mouth open, and in the next plate with jaw tightly shut. How Blake came to draw the apparition, and how he reported its explanation of the spirit world to Varley, is famously described on pp. 54-55. Note: the ?Flea? plates are both first state, before the addition of a page reference. Keynes 248: 'extremely rare'. Bentley, Blake Books, 501.

Rummer / Litiz / Lancaster County / Pennsylvania."" Postal markings: ""WASH CITY APR 21"" and ""FREE."" Noted by the recipient in the lower left of the panel: ""recd Apr. 25 / answ 26. / with order unto King / for $70."" Red wax affixed to seal the letter in lower center beneath address panel, with resulting seal tear above the address panel. Fine condition.A photocopy of the letter mailed with this free franked address leaf is present. In full, ""Washington 21 April 1828. Dear Sir: Mr King called upon me on Friday last & informed me that he entertained no hope of obtaining any part of the claims against Mrs. Turner or Mr. Hollingshead; but he expects that at some future date the account against Eliza Holzman may be collected. He had not seen Mr. Stewart. In the course of the conversation he admitted that he had received $70 for the Institution but from whom he did not recollect; and he has promised to pay me that sum before the close of the Session. I would suggest to you the propriety of sending me an order on him for that amount; as he will probably require an authority from you before he will pay me the money...""James Buchanan served in Washington, D.C., as Democratic Congressman and U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania (1821-1831, 1834-1845) and as Secretary of State (1845-1849). William R. King served in Washington, D.C., as Democratic Congressman (1811-1816) and U.S. Senator from Alabama (1819-1844, 1848-1852).King was Buchanan's longtime roommate in Washington and close political ally. There were rumors that bachelors King and Buchanan were gay. Buchanan was so inseparable from King that others in Washington took note and made jokes about the pair. Aaron Brown (later Buchanan's Postmaster General) referred to King as Buchanan?s ?better half,? ?his wife,? and ?Aunt Fancy.? Andrew Jackson nicknamed Buchanan ?Miss Nancy? and King ?Aunt Fancy.? ""Nancy"" was a British slang word for an ""effeminate or homosexual"" boy or man. In 1844, after King left for Paris as U.S. Minister, Buchanan wrote a friend, ?I am now solitary and alone, having no companion in the house with me. I have gone a wooing to several gentlemen, but have not succeeded with any one of them...?"
