        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.

        Free Franked Postmarked Address Leaf with recipient's notation "with order unto King for $70" - William R. King was Buchanan's longtime roommate in Washington, both rumored to be gay

      Washington, D.C., April 21 [1828]. 9.75" x 7.75". "Address leaf, 9.75"" x 7.75"", with 5"" x 3"" center panel franked in the upper right ""Free / James Buchanan,"" addressed by the then-Pennsylvania Congressman to ""Mr. John G. 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...?"

        Nachricht über das Kollegium von St. Katharina in Parma.

      Bellinzona 1828. - 4° (25.3 x 18 cm). 3 ungeheftete Faltbogen (=12 SS.) Bütten-Schreibpapier, davon 9 1/2 Seiten hs. Text in sorgfältiger, recht zierlicher deutscher Kurrentschrift mit feiner Feder und dunkelbrauner Tinte, datiert und signiert. Ursprünglich für Briefversand zweifach gefaltet. Bemerkenswert sauberes und gutes Objekt. Bedeutende handschriftliche schul- und institutionshistorische Quelle von hohem dokumentarischem Wert für das ?collegio universitario detto dei Nobili o di Santa Caterina. ??Dieses berühmte Kollegium wurde im Jahre 1601, unter Anrufung der hl. Katharina, von Ranuccio Farnese I Herzoge zu Parma, ausschliesslich für den Adel, in seiner Hauptstadt errichtet.? (Eingangssatz). Der Autor gibt in seinem Bericht eine überaus ausführliche und detaillierte Schilderung der Institution und ihrer Organisation, bis hin zu Mahlzeiten u. Verpflegung, und er schliesst: ?Dieß war der Zustand und die Ordnung des Kollegiums von St. Katharina in Parma, wie ich es nämlich im Jahre 1825 den 3-4-5-6-7-8 September in der Villeggiatura zu Fonte Vivo selbst zu beobachten, oder mich darüber zu erkundigen Gelegenheit hatte. Bellinzona den 5ten Maerz 1828. P. Thomas InDerBitzi.? - Das Kollegium in Parma ?war der Leitung der Jesuiten [.] übergeben. Endlich kam es in die Hände der Weltgeistlichen, gerieth durch die Zeitereignisse und Mangel an Zutrauen in solchen Zerfall, dass es endlich durch 10 Jahre ganz aufhörte. Im Jahre 1817 wurde es von der Erzherzogin Maria Luise [Luisa] Herzogin von Parma, wieder eröffnet, und der Leitung der Benediktiner allda übergeben, unter denen es trotz ungünstiger Umstände allgemach wieder aufzublühen anfängt.? (Inderbitzin, Eingangsabschnitt). ? Aus aktueller Sicht präsentiert sich hier ein Teil der Parmenser Schulgeschichte nicht zuletzt auch in Hinsicht auf die (drei) prominenten Gebäulichkeiten, zu denen das heutige ?Convitto Nazionale Maria Luigia? gehört : ?Il Collegio de? Nobili fu fondato da Ranuccio Farnese il 28 ottobre 1601 nel Palazzo che il ramo principale della casata dei Bernieri da Correggio [.] Ottavio [I Farnese], infatti, ottenne dagli Anziani di Parma l?acquisto da parte della Compagnia di Gesù di tre case tutte contigue all?Oratorio. Per quanto riguarda il Collegio de? Nobili, l?ampliamento fu dovuto all?acquisto fatto da Ranuccio II delle case circonvicine, sino a coprire l?attuale area comprendente: il palazzo del Tribunale [.]; la zona dove si trova l?edificio della Pretura e piazza del Conservatorio. Ora, il Collegio gesuitico fu cosa diversa dal Collegio dei Nobili. A partire 1° giugno 1604 il ?Collegium nobilium convictorum? sarà affidato al governo dei gesuiti. E dato che l?insegnamento delle lettere e della filosofia e della teologia spettavano ai gesuiti, che a questo scopo utilizzavano un caseggiato attiguo, chiamato di san Rocchino, i nobili collegiali vi si recavano spesso per seguirvi le lezioni (esclusi i legisti, cioè gli studenti in giurisprudenza). [.] Ecco quindi una delle ragioni in virtù delle quali il Collegio di san Rocco fu nei secoli a venire identificato come la sede del Collegio dei Nobili. Altre possono essere: 1. il collegio dei nobili era stato posto sotto la protezione di Santa Caterina, ed era prospiciente alla Chiesa parrocchiale di San Marcellino [.]. Era perciò abbastanza naturale che, di volta in volta, fosse chiamato Collegio di S.Caterina o di San Marcellino o di San Rocco; 2. Lo studium parmensis, ovvero l?università , si trovava in Palazzo Cusani, contiguo all?istituto gesuitico o studium o università degli Ignaziani. Gli insegnanti di medicina e diritto erano laici. Fu Ranuccio II che li separò senza che ai gesuiti ne derivasse alcun pregiudizio, anzi.? (etc.; con grazie a marialuigia storia, online). -- P. Thomas war (Einsiedler) Benediktiner und Lehrer in Bellinzona. Es gab hier unter dem Namen ?Residenz? eine klosterähnliche Einrichtung der Benediktiner mit einer (höheren Kloster-) Schule. Offenbar hatten 1852 ?die Radikalen im Tessin alle Klöster, daru [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Autograph letter (fragment).

      N. p., Presumably 1828. - 4 pp. on double leaf. 4to. Beginning of a letter to an undetermined receiver: "Dear Sir / I am truly grieved that my request should have weighed upon your mind in any way, and I most lament having made it at all if it is inductive of pain to you - so, however much I may regret losing the really valuable transcripts of your unsophisticated mind I would rather forgo that pleasure than cause you to be forced back upon scenes and feelings which are too much for your strength. You cannot think how really refreshing it is to read any thing which is perfectly natural, which bears no marks of what is called composition about it - but is the genuine portrait (if I may be allowed to expression) of feelings and thoughts [.] I am very much occupied - almost too much so - but I believe one must not look back or forwards but do diligently every hour what we are called upon to do, and if we act thus under the eye of God by the grace of Jesus Christ, the past and the future will take care of themselves. 'But who is sufficient for these things?' No one does what they ought; we can all preach but who is there that practises? Not I God knows, I am perhaps just beginning to be a good child as I am going on into second childhood. - You will be sorry to hear that Mr Bury has had but indifferent health and it is a constant source of anxiety to me [.] My work 'Flirtation' has a great many enemies - but I think it tends to good, and good only, so I care not - one must make up one's mind to being shot at when one sets up a target - everybody who runs a literary career will meet with these rebuffs. They are fearful at first, but secure of one's motive they become merely gnats, in a summer's eve. - I have begun a very great book - I do not trust in my own strength to bring it to good issue but in that of Him who inspired me with the idea to undertake it [.]". - Traces of folds with slight tears.

        Manuscript on paper, in English. "Album.

      [U.K. 8vo (18.9 cm, 7.45"). [143] ff.; illus.. 1828–33] This remarkably substantial collection opens with a neatly hand-inked Burns quotation: "O may the powers the giftie gie me, [/] To see mysel as others see me," followed by two mounted engravings giving the text of the Lord's Prayer and Psalm 100 in extremely "micro" form. From there the volume offers a wide variety of early 19th-century poems, quotations, plates, and original illustrations, preserved on both plain white and on pink, green, yellow, dark blue, and turquoise pages. The => original illustrations include pencil sketches of ships in a stormy sea and of stately country homes, a hand-colored moth (one of two) excised and affixed to a watercolored branch of flowers, a pretty spray of colorful blooms signed by Fanny Simpson of Doncaster, and an oil-painted scene of cows in a misty pastoral setting; among the images taken from printed sources are steel-engraved views of Cliffords Tower and Laythorp Postern, "Feramorz relating the story of the Peri," and a portrait of Sir Walter Scott. The many poems include "Forget-me-not," Thomas Campbell's lines on Hope, "Lines Written in the First Leaf of a Friend's Album" (slightly mistitled here, originally written by Bernard Barton), a meditation on the letter E, and an imitation of "Oh no! we never mention her" that closes with "I never can forget"; some entries, e.g., Jessy Steele's "On Leaving Home," seem to be original/occasional. Also present is => an original poem signed by John Roby, folklorist and author of Traditions of Lancashire, with the version as inscribed here in Roby's hand (titled "The hush'd Tempest" and dated Rochdale, 1828) differing slightly from "The Storm," the published form which appeared in The Investigator in 1820. There is one page offering a puzzle; another offers one verse in French; and a third presents us with => a particularly fine version of "The Map of Matrimony," beautifully rendered and with a verse from Cowper underneath. It is possible that more extended sleuthing than we can indulge in might locate this book within a particular family and circle. Fanny Simpson, signing one of her several charming artistic contributions at full length, gives us a Doncaster connection. An "M. Simpson" / "M.S." appears more than once; was the "Isabella" / "Isabella S" who signed her contribution from Byron intimately, with her given name only, a sister? There are Bayne, Newall, and Stockdale connections; at least TWO Steeles made entries, the Jessy above and also Thomas, who contributed a number of entries penned in calligraphic mode — one or two of these signed in full and many others signed "T.S." Was John Roby a family friend?? Half black sheep in imitation of morocco over marbled paper–covered sides, leather edges (including corners) with gilt roll, spine gilt extra; binding rubbed and scuffed overall, but still dignified. All edges gilt. Pages slightly age-toned, with occasional small spots; a few instances of offsetting from or uneven fading to colored paper. Some plates foxed. A rich and warmly evocative early 19th-century commonplace book, one emanating both Sense and Sensibility as well cultivated in Accomplishments.

        MEMOIRES DE VIDOCQ, CHEF DE LA POLICE DE SURETE, JUSQU'EN 1827.

      Tenon, Libraire-Editeur, 1828 - 1829., 1828 -1829. All four volumes are first editions. Each is 8vo. Volume One is compiled from Vidocq's notes by Emile Morice; Volumes Two, Three, and Four are by Louis Francois L'Hertier. Each is bound in 1/4 uniform red leather with maroon and red marbled boards, marbled endpapers. Gold gilt spine lettering, and ruled lines. Volumes One to Three are signed by Vidocq as called for. Engraved portrait of Vidocq as the frontispiece of Volume Four. Vidocq is regarded by Haycraft/Queen as "The Grandfather Of The Detective Story." Vidocq rose from a life of crime to Chief of the Surete and innovator of many scientific procedures to catch criminals. Vidocq (1775-1857) had a tremendous influence on contemporary and later authors of the genre: "Poe, Hugo, Balzac, Dumas, Dickens, Collins, and Doyle. The fullest and most direct fictional expression of the Vidocq influence, however, occurred in the works of his compatriot, Emile Gaboriau (1833-1873)."- Murder For Pleasure p.29 -30. Bindings a little scuffed on the edges, but bright and unfaded. The contents complete with all half titles. Spotted throughout and with a previous owner’s ink stamp on the title page of each volume. Bookplate on the pastedown of all four volumes. An attractive very good set. A hugely popular character and a very influential story. Balzac’s character Vautrin is based on the convict-policeman.

      Baltimore, 1828. Quarto. Dbd. Some foxing and soiling. About very good. "Second edition," following the first of the same year. Scarce printing of the sheet music for a march composed for the groundbreaking of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, featuring one of the earliest illustrations of a railroad in the United States that we know of, showing the engine and four small cars. The engineer stands on the side of the engine, and the fireman sits on the front of the tender. The scene is surmounted by a large eagle, which holds two shields in its beak, one of which resembles the Maryland state flag. The music was composed by Christopher Meineke, a German-born composer and pianist who settled in Baltimore, composed much original music (both sacred and secular), and was for many years the organist of St. Paul's Church. The Baltimore and Ohio Railroad was the first passenger railroad in the United States, and on July 4, 1828 a huge celebration was held for the groundbreaking of the line, at the site of the present Camden Yards baseball park in Baltimore. This sheet music was written for that momentous event. Not in Wolfe's bibliography of secular music in America, though he does list many other compositions by Meineke. OCLC locates a total of six copies of this second edition.

        [CONSECUTIVE RUN OF LOUISIANA LAWS FROM THE FIRST SEVENTEEN SESSIONS OF THE STATE LEGISLATURE, 1812 - 1828]

      New Orleans, 1828. Uniform 20th-century buckram, gilt leather labels. Small ink library stamp to titlepages, embossed blind-stamp to most titlepages, occasional ink ownership signature, some small paper repairs, minor foxing, some leaves closely trimmed, a few small marginal tears, including the bottom corner of one titlepage, some tears with minor effect to text (individually enumerated in the detailed list below), minor occasional staining, mostly marginal or in the gutters. Overall, a good set. An superb consecutive set of the first seventeen session laws issued after Louisiana achieved statehood in 1812, comprising the laws from the first session of the first "General Assembly" or legislature to the second session of the Eighth Legislature. A wealth of interesting information on the early affairs of Louisiana, at a time when the state was at the western extreme of the United States. The first volume contains much to be expected from a first legislature: a resolution giving the legislature's assent to "an enlargement of the limits of the State of Louisiana," an act regarding the salaries of various state officials, an act establishing election methods for various public offices including the U.S. House of Representatives, an act authorizing a state loan, and an act to organize a "Corps of Militia for the Service of the State of Louisiana." Understandably, there is a voluminous amount of information regarding slavery in the state throughout the laws. During the first session of the legislature alone, two of the twenty- four acts enumerated concern reimbursement from state funds for lost slaves (one to imprisonment and one killed while trying to run away). There are also acts relative to runaway slaves, private emancipation, and more. Towards the end of the run, the eighth legislature passed an act prohibiting entry of slaves into the state for purposes of sale. Other acts contained here organize the City of New Orleans into wards, with various and numerous laws on internal improvements, civil law, and criminal law. While individual volumes come to the market on occasion, nothing like this group has ever been offered at retail; it is a collection that would be impossible to assemble today on a book-by-book basis.
