Carta Topografica dei Ducati di Parma Piacenza e Guastalla Levata dietro le misure trigonometriche negli anni 1821  1822 sotto il Governo di Sua Maestà l'Arciduchessa Maria Luigia Parma  Piacenza  Guastalla 1828  Carta topografica dei Ducati di Parma, Piacenza e Guastalla eseguita sotto il governo di Sua Maestà l'Arciduchessa Maria Luigia e disegnata ed incisa in Milano nell'Istituto Geografico Militare dell'I. R. Stato Maggiore Generale Austriaco. Il titolo è riportato nell'angolo in alto a sinistra, in campo libero, ed è arricchito dalle raffigurazioni allegoriche del fiume Po', che poggia il piede su di una ricca cornucopia, il Taro e la Trebbia. Alle spalle di questi ultimi fanno da sfondo le raffigurazioni dei due rispettivi ponti, importanti opere monumentali, che furono realizzate proprio durante il governo di Maria Luigia.Questa carta murale, costituita da nove fogli ( di 440x680 mm ciascuno), rappresenta la prima opera di cartografia "moderna" costruita situando i luoghi in base alle loro distanze dalla meridiana e perpendicolare da un punto principale, che in questo caso particolare è la cupola del Duomo di Milano, mentre le posizioni geodetiche dei punti furono determinate mediante particolare triangolazione legata a quella dell'Italia Settentrionale. Lungo il lato sinistro si trova un elenco con il nome dei luoghi e rispettive "Distanze dalla Meridiana/Perpendicolare di Milano in tese di Vienna".Nell'angolo in basso a sinistra, sempre in campo libero, viene riportata la spiegazione dei segni dalla quale si comprende la profonda attenzione ad ogni particolare. Sono segnate le Rovine, Capelle, Immagini e Croci, Sorgenti di Petrolio, Miniere di Ferro e rame, Fonti Salate e Bagni di acque minerali oltre ai canonici segni convenzionali riguardanti le differenti tipologie di Centri abitati, le Strade con i punti di Posta, i confini e molto altro ancora.Nell'angolo in alto a destra sono riportate notizie relative alla topografia del territorio: Posizione geografica e confini, Clima, Superficie, Suolo, Fiumi e Torrenti ed infine Prodotti Minerali. Sempre lungo il lato destro riportate notizie riguardo alla Popolazione e Istituzioni Pubbliche oltre ad alcune notizie in merito ad Industria e Commercio. Infine nell'angolo in basso sono riassunti alcuni cenni storici suddivisi in avvenimenti Politici e Militari.L'opera è arricchita anche dalla raffigurazione topografica della Villa e Parco Ducale di Colorno e della Villa Ducale di Sala detta Casino dei Boschi. Quest'opera, eseguita alla scala di 1/86400 del naturale, si deve annoverare tra le opere monumentali eseguite durante il Governo di Maria Luigia, in quanto un'attenta gestione del territorio non poteva, ed ancora oggi, non può prescindere, da una particolareggiata e precisa rappresentazione cartografica del proprio territorio. La carta si presenta applicata su tela a stacchi e conservata nel suo astuccio originale. Ottima conservazione. mm 1320x2040 [Bookseller: Sergio Trippini] 1. Check availability: AbeBooks

Description des Monumens Musulmans du cabinet de M. le Duc de Blacas 1828  First edition. With ten engraved plates (2 folding). 2 vols. 8vo. Contemporary quarter calf over mottled boards, four raised bands, gilt lettering and decoration to spines; spines slightly worn, front joint of vol. 2 splitting at head with a small section of loss, otherwise very good. [4], xv, [1]blank, 400; [4], 488 pp. Paris, Imprimerie Royale, JosephTouissant Reinaud's bestknown work; an exhaustive catalogue of Islamic art, collected by the Duc de Blacas (17711839).This copy is inscribed by Reinaud to the Duc de Luynes, another famous French antiquarian. The Duke, a former member of the Conseil du Roi of Lois XVIII, was an enthusiastic collector who held a special interest in artefacts from the Arab world. His cabinet brought together works in many mediums, including coins, medals, seals, engraved stones and arms. As a supporter of French study of the Orient, the Duke would have been aware of the growing reputation of Reinaud (who was working in the department of Eastern manuscripts at the Bibliothèque Nationale) and thus tasked him with describing the collection. Reinaud excelled, proving himself especially adept at linking the names on the works to their historical and/or legendary contexts. He later fulfilled several esteemed positions, including being named president of the Asiatic Society in 1847. Provenance: The Library of the Ducs de Luynes from the Château of Dampierre.

A Brief Account of the Execution of the Six Militia Men!! 1828  Philadelphia: Democratic Press, 1828. AntiJackson Broadside from the 1828 Presidential Race [Broadside]. [Jackson, Andrew (17671845)] [1828 Presidential Campaign]. A Brief Account of the Execution of the Six Militia Men!! [Philadelphia: Democratic Press, 1828]. 181/2" x 10 1/4" broadside with untrimmed edges, text in three columns below headline and woodcut image of six coffins. Moderate toning, light foxing and a few faint dampstains, three tiny scuffs with minor loss to text, mended on verso with archival tape. Item hinged to archivalquality clothcovered illustration board. $2,750. * This is one of a series of broadsides attacking candidate Andrew Jackson for an incident that occurred during the War of 1812. In 1815 Jackson ordered the execution of six soldiers who tried to leave the service shortly before the conclusion of their threemonth enlistment term. They were condemned as deserters and executed by firing squad in Nashville, Tennessee. Many thought execution was unfair, a classic case of a punishment that did not fit the crime. Jackson was running mainly on the strength of his warhero resume, so broadsides such as this one were intended to undermine this reputation and to show him as a cruel individual. As we know, the strategy failed. Jackson defeated John Quincy Adams. This appears to be an unrecorded broadside. Shaw & Shoemaker records a later issue of this broadside, with the same title, entry 32473, but it is in four columns and has additional text dated 20 January 1828.

ASSURANCE THAT THE FEES INCURRED AT THE BETHLEHEM FEMALE SEMINARY BY AN ORPHANED FLORIDA GIRL WOULD BE PAID IN FULL ONCE HER BENEFACTOR RECEIVED PAYMENT FOR SLAVES SHE HAD LEASED TO A NEARBY FARMER ; Fourpage folded letter from Isabelle Gibbs to the Reverend Charles F. Seidel St. Augustine, Florida, 1828. Unbound. Very good. This fourpage, stampless folded letter measures 15.5" x 9.75" unfolded. It is dated June 18, 1828 and addressed to the Reverend Charles F. Seidel at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. The cover has scarce oval "St Augustine / E. Flo." postmark in red dated June 19 and a manuscript ".25" indicating the postage rate from mail sent over 400 miles. The letter is complete and intact. Splits have started along some of the folds; and a chip is missing where the wax seal was broken. In this letter to the Bethlehem Female Seminary, Gibbs repeatedly assures that a newly enrolled orphan's bills will be paid using funds her adoptive widowed mothera friend of Gibbsreceives from hiring out slaves to a local farmer: "We hope Margaret will improve knowing as she does the sacrifice her maternal Friend makes to her own personal comforts for . . . the lasting benefits of her adopted child. . . . Be not uneasy as to prompt payment as the parties concern'd have character & principles & you shall receive your next quarter as soon as the Gent to who the Negroes are hired answers Mr. Gibbs letter. The money & more due to Mrs Ashe & will be remitted to you. Be not mistaken Margaret is born of honest Parents, her Father lost his prudence and fell victim to intemperance. Her mother was one among the pious & died a Triumphing Christian, in these last moments the kind & religious Mrs Ashe receiv'd to her bosom this child. . . . Mrs Ashe would not give an Education unsupported . . . & unless Death removes the Negroes allotted to her she will have sufficient to maintain her. . . . Had you a person in Charleston to receive there payments, they could be more easily be made as our communication with that City is regular by both Water & Land  Also many robberies are committed by mail that from this isolated spot the risque is great. . . . This evening the Gent who employs the Negroes of Mrs Ashe & who lives about 40 miles from here will be written to. . . . Your seminary reciev'd several children from Brooklyn N.Y. with whose Parents I was intimate & this induc'd me to recommend it to Mrs Ashe." The Bethlehem Female Seminary was the first Protestant boarding schools for girls established in what would become the United States and traces its roots back to Countess Benigna Zinzendorf who founded it in 1742. Although it began as an elementary institution, by 1800 it was recognized as one of the finest secondary schools in the country. Its motto was "When you educate a woman, you educate an entire family," and its curriculum included both liberal academics and practical household teachings. Charles F. Seidel served as its director 1822 to 1836. Over time the seminary morphed into several incarnations, and today it is a fullfledge liberal arts college, Moravian College. A scarce document attesting to the generosity of neighbors in East Florida, one of the most remote parts of the early United States, who ensured a quality education for a young white orphan girl using proceeds earned from AfricanAmerican slave labor. Made all the more desirable by a rarely found St. Augustine postmark. [Bookseller: Read 'Em Again Books, ABAA] 26. Check availability: IOBABooks

A Narrative of an Ascent to the Summit of Mont Blanc. [London:] printed for Benjamin Hawes, Junior, by Arthur Taylor,, 1828. Made during the Summer of 1827 by Mr. William Hawes and Mr. Charles Fellows. Quarto (240 x 180 mm). Contemporary crossgrain green morocco (binder's blanks watermarked 1831), spine lettered and decorated in gilt, concentric gilt panelling to side, elaborate arabesque cornerpieces and central armorial device gilt, all edges gilt, redbrown coated endpapers, bound brown satin pagemarker. Lithographic frontispiece of comparative mountain heights, plate of Saussure's ascent, folding facsimile letter. Neat monogram "GHM" inked to front pastedown. Morocco expertly refurbished, a few spots to frontispiece and facsimile, Saussure plate slightly foxed. An excellent copy. First and only edition. Presentation copy on large paper of this cornerstone of mountaineering literature, inscribed "With William Hawes [sic] compliments to [effaced] Louis Miéville" on the titlepage, extremely uncommon with the plate of comparative mountain heights and of Saussure's ascent: Neate implies that copies were issued with either one or the other; in the few copies traced in commerce with both plates, the Saussure plate is usually trimmed and mounted, or otherwise evidently supplied, neither being the case in the present copy. Hawes (18051885), the son of a wealthy soapmanufacturer, and Fellows (17991860), who went on to become a noted archaeologist, made their ascent in July 1827, pioneering the Corridor Route to the summit, which remained standard for 30 years. Hawes's brother Benjamin, a noted Whig politician, compiled his account from William's notes and had it printed privately "in order to gratify the inquiries of numerous friends and it is hoped it will be acceptable to those whom alone it is intended" (Preface). It is considered "among the first examples of pure mountaineering literature, in that the climbing was pursued for its own sake and not in any spirit of scientific enquiry" (National Library of Scotland), alongside Fellows's own account, which was published the same year under an identical title. The recipient of this copy was Swissborn collector JeanLouis Miéville (18081897), who built a noted picture collection which included several Old Masters, and which was sold at Christie's in 1899. The binding, which includes his giltstamped crest of an armoured bust and feathers, is a charming example of deluxe lateGeorgian handiwork. [Bookseller: Peter Harrington] 33.

Göttingen: Dieterich, 1811, 1813, 1816, 1820, 1828. First editions, journal issues, of thirteen important papers by Gauss, including works on the fundamental theorem of algebra, number theory, hypergeometric functions, approximation theory, differential geometry, gravitation, and celestial mechanics. "Gauss ranks, together with Archimedes and Newton, as one of the greatest geniuses in the history of mathematics" (Printing & the Mind of Man, p. 155). "In his first years at Göttingen, Gauss experienced a second upsurge of ideas and publications in various fields of mathematics. Among the latter were several notable papers inspired by his work on the tiny planet Pallas, perturbed by Jupiter [including Disquisitio de elementis ellipticis palladis]; Disquisitlones generates circa seriem infinitam, an early rigorous treatment of series and the introduction of the hypergeometric functions, ancestors of the "special functions" of physics; Methodus nova integralium valores per approximationem invenlendi, an important contribution to approximate integration; ... and Determinatio attractionis quam in punctum quodvis positionis datae exerceret planeta si eius massa per totam orbitam ratione temporis quo singulae partes describuntur uniformiter esset dispertita, which showed that the perturbation caused by a planet is the same as that of an equal mass distributed along its orbit in proportion to the time spent on an arc. At the same time Gauss continued thinking about unsolved mathematical problems ... By 1817 Gauss was ready to move toward geodesy ... the period of preoccupation with geodesy was in fact one of the most scientifically creative of Gauss's long career. Already in 1813 geodesic problems had inspired his Theoria attractionis corporum sphaeroidicorum ellipticorum homogeneorum methodus nova tractata, a significant early work on potential theory ... Surveying problems also motivated Gauss to develop his ideas on least squares and more general problems of what is now called mathematical statistics. The result was the definitive exposition of his mature ideas in the Theoria combinationis obseruationum erroribus minimis obnoxiae (with supplement) [only the supplement present in the offered volumes] ... However, the crowning contribution of the period, and his last breakthrough in a major new direction of mathematical research, was Disquisitiones generates circa superficies curvas, which grew out of his geodesic meditations of three decades and was the seed of more than a century of work on differential geometry" (DSB). Gauss's first great work was his doctoral thesis, Demonstratio Nova Theorematis Omnem Functionem Algebraicam Rationalem Integram unius Variabilis in Factores Reales Primi vel Secundi Gradus resolvi posse (1799), in which he gave the first rigorous proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra. This theorem, which states that every algebraic equation in one unknown has a root, was stated by Albert Girard, Descartes, Newton, and Maclaurin. Attempts at a proof were made by d'Alembert, Euler, and Lagrange, but Gauss was the first to furnish a rigorous demonstration. However, Gauss's proof of 1799, which used geometric notions, was itself not completely rigorous (its gaps were not completely filled until 1920), and Gauss himself was not satisfied with it. In 1816 he published two further proofs, Demonstratio nova altera theorematis omnem functionem algebraicam rationalem integram unius variabilis in factores reales primi vel secundi gradus resolvi posse and Theorematis de resolubilitate functionum algebraicarum integrarum in factores reales demonstratio tertia. The first of these is almost strictly algebraic, but it is not really complete as it presupposes that every real equation of odd degree has a real root and that every quadratic equation with complex coefficients has two complex roots. The third proof is easier but uses calculus. Two of the papers in these volumes deal with analysis (i.e., calculus). Disquisitlones generales circa seriem "has several claims to fame: it considers x as a complex variable; and it contains the earliest rigorous argument for the convergence of a power series and a study of the behaviour of the function at a point on the boundary of the circle of convergence, as well as a thorough examination of continued fraction expansions for certain quotients of hypergeometric functions" (Gray, Linear Differential Equations and Group Theory from Riemann to Poincaré (2010), p. 5). In Methodus nova integralium valores per approximationem inveniendi, Gauss introduced new quadrature (i.e., integration) formulas with a degree of accuracy considerably improved as compared with the NewtonCotes formula. The latter formula gives an approximate value for the integral of a function over an interval in terms of the values of the function at the intermediate points obtained by dividing the interval into n equal parts. Gauss asked what could be accomplished if these intermediate points were available as parameters to be chosen? He answered this question completely, leading to the socalled Gauss quadrature formula. He showed that if these division points are taken to be the roots of a Legendre polynomial of degree n, the quadrature formula is exact for the integration of polynomials of degree up to 2n  1. In fact, Gauss did not use Legendre polynomials in his proof, he used his hypergeometric function instead (which contain the Legendre polynomials as a special case). "Gauss's method is not only elegant but it differs from the more modern approaches in that he arrives at his result from first principles, and not, as is now done, by showing how the result follows from properties of Legendre's polynomials" (Goldstine, A History of Numerical Analysis (1977), p. 225)." Three of the papers deal with gravitation and celestial mechanics. "Gauss used the method of least squares to determine the orbit of Ceres in 1801 just after the discovery of the planet by Piazzi. When a second minor planet, Pallas, was later discovered by Olbers, Gauss again set about determining its precise orbit, and he explained his approach in a memoir dated 1810 [Disquisitio de elementis ellipticis palladis]. Starting from six observations made when the planet was in opposition  and so close to the Earth  Gauss obtained 12 equations between 6 unknowns (the mean anomaly, the mean diurnal movement, the longitude of the perihelion, the eccentricity, the longitude of the node, the inclination). After obtaining an approximate solution, he determined 12 linear equations that must satisfy corrections to be made to the 6 unknowns. Rejecting the tenth because it was too imprecise on account of the observation, he used 11 equations from which he derived 6 normal equations and finally 6 corrections. In order to make it easier to deal with the algebraic solution of the system formed by the normal equations, Gauss made certain remarks at the end of the Theory of the Movement of Celestial Bodies (1809) which he developed in his Memoir on the minor planet Pallas (1810), and then in the second part of the Theory of the Combination of Observations which appeared in 1823 [the penultimate paper offered here]. These remarks remind us of what is now called, in linear algebra, Gaussian elimination, or the Gauss pivot method, and the transformation of a quadratic into quadratic form, that is into a sum of squares, which produces a diagonal matrix" (Chabert, A History of Algorithms (1999), p. 291). "In 1810, in his Disquisitio de Elementis ellipticis Palladis, Gauss sets out to determine details ('elliptical elements') about the orbit of Pallas, the secondlargest asteroid of the solar system. He obtains a system of linear equations in six unknowns, where not all equations can be satisfied simultaneously. Hence he needs to determine values for the unknowns that will minimize the total squared error. Instead of merely solving the problem at hand, Gauss digresses and introduces a method for dealing with such systems of linear equations in general" (Althoen & McLaughlin, 'GaussJordan reduction: a brief history,' The American Mathematical Monthly 94 (1987), p. 134). In Determinatio attractionis, Gauss's astronomical work led to different mathematical ideas. In this paper he showed that the gravitational attraction due to a planet is the same as that of an equal mass distributed along its orbit in proportion to the time spent on an arc, and that the attraction caused by such a 'Gaussian ring' could be expressed in terms of elliptic integrals. He related the evaluation of these integrals to the 'arithmeticgeometric mean'. This was the only work he published on elliptic integrals (although much more remained in manuscript and was published after his death). Theoria attractionis corporum sphaeroidicorum ellipticorum homogeneorum methodus nova tractate, which is arguably the first work in potential theory, contains the first indication of what was later called the 'divergence theorem', which relates integrals over a volume in threedimensional space with integrals over its bounding surface. "The contributions Gauss's paper makes are twofold: first, the idea of the surface of a body and its general local infinitesimal area, and secondly, the process of lines entering and exiting from the surface. These two concepts remained long after the rest of the paper had been forgotten" (Harman, Wranglers and Physicists (1985), pp. 1145). The divergence theorem was proved in complete generality by George Green in 1828. The numbertheoretic papers in these volumes all relate to the law of quadratic reciprocity, which Gauss privately referred to as the Aureum Theorema (Golden Theorem). This was discovered by Euler in 1783 but the first proof was given by Gauss in his Disquisitiones arithmeticae (1801). In Theorematis fundamentalis in doctrina de residuis quadraticis demonstrationes et ampliationes novae Gauss provided his fifth and sixth proofs which are particularly important since, as Gauss explains in the introduction to this work, the techniques they employ ('Gauss's lemma' and 'Gauss sums,' respectively) can be applied to the study of cubic and biquadratic reciprocity. Gauss sums were studied in his Summatio quarumdam serierum singularium. "Gauss' fifth proof of the quadratic reciprocity is Gauss' most elementary proof of the quadratic reciprocity law... for which Gauss has given altogether eight proofs, six of which were published, and two more were found in his papers after his death. The fifth proof was published in 1818, together with the sixth proof, under the title Theorematis Fundamentalis in Doctrina de Residuis Quadraticis Demonstrationes et Ampliationes Novae. But Gauss found it probably already between 1807 and 1808... [it is] based on Gauss' lemma" (Laudal & Piene, The legacy of Niels Henrik Abel (2004), p. 276). "The sixth and last of Gauss' published proofs of the law of quadratic reciprocity was published in 1818... He mentions in the introduction to this paper that for years he had searched for a method that would generalize to the cubic and biquadratic case and that finally his untiring efforts were crowned with success... The purpose of publishing this sixth proof, he states, was to bring to a close that part of the higher arithmetic dealing with quadratic residues and to say, in a sense, farewell..." (Ireland & Rosen, A classical introduction to modern number theory (1998), p. 76). The attempt to generalize quadratic reciprocity for powers higher than the second was one of the main goals that led nineteenth century mathematicians, including Gauss, Dedekind, Dirichlet, Eisenstein, Hilbert, Jacobi and Kummer to the study of general algebraic number fields; notably, Kummer invented 'ideal numbers' in order to state and prove higher reciprocity laws. The ninth in the list of 23 unsolved problems which David Hilbert proposed to the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1900 asked for the "Proof of the most general reciprocity law for an arbitrary number field." The first steps were taken by Gauss himself in Theoria residuorum biquadraticorum [of which the first part appears in this collection  a second part appeared in Vol. VII]. In this paper Gauss stated (but did not prove) the law of biquadratic [i.e., quartic] reciprocity. The last paper in the collection is the most important, Disquisitiones generales circa superficies curvas. The most important result of this masterpiece in the mathematical literature is the Theorema egregium" (Zeidler, Quantum Field theory III. Gauge Theory (2013), p. 15). "A decisive influence on the entire course of development of differential geometry was exerted by the publication of [this] paper of Gauss... It was this paper, carefully polished and containing a wealth of new ideas, that gave this area of geometry more or less its present form and opened a large circle of new and important problems whose development provided work for geometers for many decades" (Kolmogorov & Yushkevitch, Mathematics of the 19th century: Geometry. Analytic Function Theory (1996), p. 7). The Theorema egregium shows that a certain measure of how curved a surface is (now called its Gaussian curvature) is 'intrinsic,' i.e. can be determined by measurements made only on the surface and without reference to the ambient threedimensional space. "Gauss' Theorema egregium had an enormous impact on the development of modern differential geometry and modern physics culminating in the principle 'force equals curvature'. This principle is basic for both Einstein's theory of general relativity on gravitation and the Standard Model in elementary particle physics" (Zeidler, p. 16). Gauss also shows that certain other features of a surface, such as its geodesic lines (the shortest paths), are intrinsic. A second major result contained in the present paper, which perhaps had even greater ramifications in mathematics than the Theorema egregium, is a version of what is now known as the GaussBonnet theorem. Gauss showed that the total Gaussian curvature of the interior of a triangle on a surface with geodesic sides is the amount by which the sum of the angles of the triangle exceeds its Euclidean value π. This result was generalized by PierreOssian Bonnet in 1848 and by many later mathematicians, and served as the prototype of results linking the local geometry of a space (e.g. its curvature) with its 'topology' (its overall shape), a theme which pervades much of 20th century mathematics. Remarkably, Gauss describes at the end of the present work some measurements he has made to verify the GaussBonnet theorem. He tells us that he has measured the angles of a triangle, the greatest side of which was more than 15 miles, and found that the sum of the angles of the triangle is greater than two rightangles by almost 15 seconds of arc, in agreement with the theorem as it applies to the surface of the Earth. The discovery that some important geometrical properties of a surface are intrinsic suggested that a surface should be treated as a space with its own geometry; this is the idea that was taken up and generalized to higher dimensions by Riemann in his Habilitationsschrift. "In his approach to differential geometry, Riemann used ideas from Carl Friedrich Gauss's theory of surfaces, but liberated them from the restriction of being embedded in (threedimensional) Euclidean space. He started from a determination of the length of a line element as a positivedefinite quadratic differential form to derive further notions depending on metrics, in particular that of the geodesic line. Moreover, he introduced the sectional curvature of an infinitely small surface element, derived from the Gaussian curvature of the associated finite surface inside the manifold, which is generated by all geodesic lines starting in the surface element" (Companion Encyclopedia, p. 928). Many, and possibly all, of these papers were also issued in offprint form, although most of them are extremely rare. While in many cases offprints were published later than the journal, in this case the offprints probably take precedence. For example, Methodus nova integralium valores per approximationem inveniendi appeared as an offprint in 1815 but in the journal in 1816, and Determinatio attractionis appeared as an offprint in 1818 but in the journal in 1820. 4to (238 x 188 mm), pp. xx, 564 with 17 folding plates (Vol. I); xxiv, 565 with 11 folding plates (Vol. II); pp. xxiv, 564 with 16 folding plates (Vol. III); xxiv, 512 with 18 folding plates (Vol. IV); xxiv, 579 with 24 folding plates (Vol. VI).

The Book of Common Prayer and Administration of the Sacraments. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1828. Nineteenth century Book of Common Prayer. Octavo, bound in contemporary red morocco, engraved throughout, including portraits, illustrations, page borders, with volvelle on the Circular Table, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. In very good condition, rebacked. The Book of Common Prayer was created out of Thomas Cranmer's desire for a liturgical text that all of Europe's Protestant, Englishspeaking churches could agree on. Its magisterial liturgical language is, "as a source of spiritual inspiration for most Englishmen second only to the Bible" (PMM 75). The Book of Common Prayer was first issued in 1549 during the reign of Edward VI and revised through the reign of Mary I, James II, and ending significantly in 1832.

A Memoir of the Life and Ministry of Ann Freeman, a Faithful Servant of Christ, compiled from her Diary and Letters by Henry Freeman. 1828  Second edition. 8vo., original maroon cloth, printed paper label to the spine, recently rebacked in red buckram, new endpapers, uncut. London, Darton and Harvey. Inscribed on the original front free endpaper 'Charlotte Christy from her affectionate friend Elisabeth Fry. 1st No 1828'. An important Quaker text, inscribed by a great Quaker to a fellow Quaker. Frymarried into a wealthy north of England family in the cotton business, and took an active part in her husband's business, philanthropical and political affairs. Elizabeth Fry has some claim to being one of Victorian England's most remarkable figures, in an age of remarkable Britons. She made important contributions to Prison reform, help for the homeless, and the improvement of nursing, while caring for her large family  she had 11 children, and had the ear of Queen Victoria, and Robert Peel. After her first visit to Newgate prison, she was appalled by what she saw, and told a fellow Quaker ?All I tell thee is a faint picture of reality; the filth, the closeness of the rooms, the furious manner and expressions of the women towards each other, and the abandoned wickedness, which everything bespoke are really indescribable.? She formed the Association for the Improvement of the Females at Newgate, and was able to transform thecondition of the prison. June Rose wrote in her Quaker Tapestry booklet on Fry 'Through her personal courage and involvement, Elizabeth Fry alerted the nations of Europe to the cruelty and filth in the prisons and revealed the individual human faces behind the prison bars. Her own passionate desire to lead a useful life disturbed the placid, vapid existence of women in Victorian England and changed forever the confines of respectable femininity. The name of Elizabeth Fry broadened the appeal of the Quaker faith . . . Over two hundred years after her birth, she seems a brave and modern woman, battling with the injustices of her time.'

A Narrative of an Ascent to the Summit of Mont Blanc. Made during the Summer of 1827 by Mr. William Hawes and Mr. Charles Fellows. [London:] printed for Benjamin Hawes, Junior, by Arthur Taylor, 1828  Quarto (240 x 180 mm). Contemporary crossgrain green morocco (binder's blanks watermarked 1831), spine lettered and decorated in gilt, concentric gilt panelling to side, elaborate arabesque cornerpieces and central armorial device gilt, all edges gilt, redbrown coated endpapers, bound brown satin pagemarker. Neat monogram "GHM" inked to front pastedown. Morocco expertly refurbished, a few spots to frontispiece and facsimile, Saussure plate slightly foxed. An excellent copy. Lithographic frontispiece of comparative mountain heights, plate of Saussure's ascent, folding facsimile letter. First and only edition. Presentation copy on large paper of this cornerstone of mountaineering literature, inscribed "With William Hawes [sic] compliments to [effaced] Louis Miéville" on the titlepage, extremely uncommon with the plate of comparative mountain heights and of Saussure's ascent: Neate implies that copies were issued with either one or the other; in the few copies traced in commerce with both plates, the Saussure plate is usually trimmed and mounted, or otherwise evidently supplied, neither being the case in the present copy. Hawes (18051885), the son of a wealthy soapmanufacturer, and Fellows (17991860), who went on to become a noted archaeologist, made their ascent in July 1827, pioneering the Corridor Route to the summit, which remained standard for 30 years. Hawes's brother Benjamin, a noted Whig politician, compiled his account from William's notes and had it printed privately "in order to gratify the inquiries of numerous friends and it is hoped it will be acceptable to those whom alone it is intended" (Preface). It is considered "among the first examples of pure mountaineering literature, in that the climbing was pursued for its own sake and not in any spirit of scientific enquiry" (National Library of Scotland), alongside Fellows's own account, which was published the same year under an identical title. The recipient of this copy was Swissborn collector JeanLouis Miéville (18081897), who built a noted picture collection which included several Old Masters, and which was sold at Christie's in 1899. The binding, which includes his giltstamped crest of an armoured bust and feathers, is a charming example of deluxe lateGeorgian handiwork. Neate 357.
