        One Hundred Fables WITH: Second Series

      1828. First Edition . NORTHCOTE, James. One Hundred Fables, Original and Selected. WITH: Second Series. London: George Lawford; John Murray (Chiswick Press), 1828; 1833. Two volumes. Octavo, late 19th-century three-quarter brown calf, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt, uncut. $1500.First edition of artist NorthcoteÂ’s compilation of 201 fables, “the greater portion of which are of my own invention,” with his headpiece designs for each one and with initial letters and tailpieces by William Harvey, pupil of Thomas Bewick.“James Northcote was one of a number of prominent painters of the 18th centuryÂ… Today Northcote is chiefly admired for his portraits, though his paintings of animals found favor in his lifetime. In his later years he devoted an increasing amount of time to history paintings, including some scenes from ShakespeareÂ’s history plays which were exhibited in BoydellÂ’s Shakespeare Gallery. Northcote is renowned also for his writing, penning the first full biography of Reynolds in 1813, and later a Life of Titian, as well as a book of Fables lavishly illustrated by woodcuts crafted from his own designsÂ… A prolific artist, Northcote was credited with around 2000 works, and by living frugally in his London house for the last 50 years of his life he died a wealthy manÂ… A second series of the Fables was published posthumously, financed by a clause in his will setting aside between £1000 and £1400 explicitly for this” (Devon Perspectives). Thomas Bewick called One Hundred Fables “a brilliant Book.” Northcote acknowledges that “although the original invention and designs for the prints at the head of each Fable are my own, yet they have been most excellently drawn on wood, and prepared for the engravers, by Mr. Willliam Harvey, one of the most distinguished artists in his profession; and many of them have been improved by his skill.” This set includes both series of NorthcoteÂ’s Fables, the second being printed at the Chiswick Press. Ray 55 & 56. Brunet IV, 103. Graesse IV, 688. Gift inscription in Volume II.Half title excised from Volume I, a few stray spots of foxing. Near-fine copies.

        De la percussion médiate et des signes obtenus à l'aide de ce nouveau moyen d'exploration dans les maladies des organes thoraciques et abdominaux

      Paris et Londres, J.S. Chaudé & J.B. Baillière, 1828. 1828, 1828, in-8, de X, 336 pages et 2 planches, Demi-basane bleu de l'époque, dos à faux nerfs orné, Première édition de cet ouvrage qui valut à son auteur le prix Montyon. Piorry (1794-1879), l'un des pionniers de l'auscultation après Laennec, fit entrer la percussion médiate dans l'examen physique respiratoire. Il inventa à cet usage le plessimètre à plaque (de plesso, "je frappe", et metron, mesure), fait d'une lamelle de bois ou d'ivoire. Son utilisation est fondée sur le fait que les organes émettent des sons et donnent des sensations tactiles en fonction de leur structure. Piorry expérimenta sa technique sur un cadavre avant de l'intégrer à l'examen clinique. Le plessimètre à plaque sera utilisé pendant presque un siècle avec des résultats apparemment excellents. Piorry apporta également des modifications au stéthoscope ; la première planche du présent ouvrage figure le stéthoscope de Laennec avec les modifications apportées. Tableau des principaux sons obtenus par la percussion médiate en guise de deuxième planche. Rousseurs et cachets de l'Institut Catholique de Paris

        President's Message

      1828. First Edition . ADAMS, John Quincy. PresidentÂ’s Message. IN: National Intelligencer— Extra, December 2, 1828. Washington: [Gales & Seaton], 1828. Broadside sheet of wove stock, measuring 15-1/2 by 21-1/2 inches, printed on recto only. $3000.Probably the earliest newspaper printing of AdamsÂ’ last State of the Union Address, in which he acknowledges the unfairness of the famous “Tariff of Abominations,” which all but lost him the presidency.AdamsÂ’ term as president was “a long nightmare, oppressed by a succession of alternately terrible and trivial events, which he seemed powerless to control or avoid” (Brookhiser, 93). Perhaps the last “terrible event” of AdamsÂ’ administration was his proposed a high tariff on imported industrial goods, particularly textiles and finished clothing. This bill he thought would protect New England factories, the hub of U.S. industry, from European competitors. Andrew JacksonÂ’s supporters in Congress opposed the tariff but sought to exploit the question in order to embarrass Adams and help Jackson win the presidency in 1828. They framed a bill, which became known as the “Tariff of Abominations,” to “win support for Jackson in Kentucky, Missouri, New York, Ohio, and Pennsylvania while weakening the Adams administration in New England. The bill raised duties on iron, hemp, and flax (which would benefit Westerners), while lowering the tariff on woolen goods (to the detriment of New England textile manufacturers)” (University of Houston). The “Tariff of Abominations” also created a political uproar in the South, where it was denounced as unconstitutional and discriminatory. Southern exporters of raw cotton often took finished goods as partial payment for their crops and the tariff on imported textiles reduced their profits. “The tariff, southerners insisted, was essentially a tax on their region to assist northern manufacturers. South Carolina expressed the loudest outcry against the tariff. At a public meeting in Charleston, protesters declared that a tariff was designed to benefit ‘one class of citizens [manufacturers] at the expense of every other class.Â’ Some South Carolinians called for revolutionary defiance of the national government” (University of Houston). Adams was met with hostility on all fronts.In this, AdamsÂ’ fourth and last State of the Union Address, he acknowledges the unfairness of the tariff: “The tariff of the last session was in its details not acceptable to the great interests of any portion of the Union, not even to the interest which it was specially intended to subserve. Its object was to balance the burdens upon native industry imposed by the operation of foreign laws, but not to aggravate the burdens of one section of the Union by the relief afforded to another.” But it was too late. AdamsÂ’ address was delivered just the day before he learned of his defeat by Andrew Jackson. The ploy had succeeded. John Randolph of Virginia accurately described the object of the 1828 Tariff Bill as an effort to encourage “manufactures of no sort or kind, except the manufacture of a President of the United States.” Not recorded by Shaw & Shoemaker. Light soiling to top margin, shallow creasing to corners. An extremely good copy. Scarce.

HARALD FISCHER VERLAG : "Nach kleineren Anfängen war das Encyklopädische Wörterbuch die erste großangelegte, von deutschen Medizinern vorgelegte medizinische Enzyklopädie. Ihr Entstehungszeitraum, die Jahre zwischen 1830 und 1850, war in der deutschen Medizin eine Zeit der Krise und des Umbruchs, die Medizin schien in ein chaotisches Nebeneinander von unterschiedlichen Theorien und Praktiken zu münden. - In dieser Zeit des Umbruchs schufen C.W. Hufeland und seine Mitherausgeber ein Wörterbuch, dessen Beiträge von sachlichem Stil und nüchterner, unpolemischer Kritik geprägt waren. Das Wörterbuch bot einen solide recherchierten zeitgenössischen Wissensstand und einen verhältnismäßig neutralen Überblick über die Vielfalt der medizinischen Theorien und Konzepte.

        Über Interpolation.

      Berlin: Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1828. First printing of what is now called the Gauss-Newton interpolation formula; which enables one to predict the value of a quantity given a finite number of observations. Gauss had lectured on the interpolation formula at Göttingen in 1812; his then student Encke attended Gauss's lectures, and published his notes on them in the present paper almost two decades later. Gauss's interest in interpolation formulas derived from their obvious application to predicting the present position of a celestial body given several observations of its position in the past. Gauss had become famous by correctly predicting the position of the minor planet Ceres, discovered by G. Piazzi on 1 January 1801, on 7 December 1801 after its orbit had taken it behind the Sun. Although Gauss published nothing on the interpolation formula during his lifetime, a manuscript discussing it entitled 'Theoria Interpolationis Methodo Nova Tractata' was found in his Nachlass and published in Werke, vol. III, pp. 265-327. Encke (1791-1865) is now principally remembered for his work on comets. He predicted the orbit of a comet discovered in 1818 and when this was confirmed by observation the comet was named after him. His work brought him the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. In 1825 he became professor at the Berlin Academy of Sciences and director of the Berlin Observatory. "After his appointment at Berlin, [he] undertook the editing of the Berliner Astronomisches Jahrbuch... With the support of his assistants... he issued the yearbooks for 1830-1866... Its issuance was a private matter, supported by the state, but not without economic risk. The opportunity to publish made possible the appearance of Encke's treatises in the yearbooks, dealing particularly with orbit determinations and perturbation computations" (DSB). In the present volume, the first of the yearbooks issued by Encke, the first section (pp. 1-235) is taken up with tables of ephemerides, while the second section (pp. 239-308) is taken up with five papers by Encke on the calculation of stellar occultations, on a stellar sextant, etc., as well as the paper on the interpolation formula. Provennace: Contemporary engraved bookplate of (third) Earl of Dunraven on front paste-down. Edwin Quin, third Earl of Dunraven, was educated at Eton where he showed a strong taste for astronomy; and afterwards spent three years at the Dublin Observatory under Sir William Rowan Hamilton. While the natural sciences occupied much of his attention; he was also deeply interested in the study of Irish antiquities, and was a prominent member of the Royal Irish Academy, the Celtic Society, and several archaeological associations. His Notes on Irish Architecture (two volumes, London: 1875-77) were published after his death in 1871. In: Berliner Astronomisches Jahrbuch für 1830... herausgegeben von J. F. Encke, pp. 265-284. The complete volume offered here: 8vo, pp. xii, 308, with one engraved plate of diagrams. Contemporary dark blue-green half-calf and marbled boards, smooth spine panelled by broad gilt rolled bands, one panel directly lettered in gilt, other panels with large gilt tool in centres, edges speckled green.

Bound by Charles de Samblanx in Romantic style in black straight grain morocco, central Arabesque in gold with raised design painted pink, green, & gold; pink calf doubles with multiple gilt rules, elaborate corner pieces inlaid with turquoise morocco; pink moire flyleaves, marbled endpapers (one with the armorial bookplate of Baron de Launoit); spine richly gilt is signed at the foot. The original (and meant to be temporary) wraps with label are bound in. Extremely slight wear. Fine copy of a very pretty book. The lithographs were made with pen, printed on China paper, and mounted with the text, which is printed in a batarde type face. In this deluxe copy, a leaf bearing the lithograph in its natural state is inserted before each appearance of the colored one within the text. The large opening initials also are colored & gilded. The fables are followed by a section of commentary. Gordon Ray (The Art of the Illustrated French Book 1700 to 1914, pages 173-176) writes of Bonington "his importance in the development of lithography can hardly be overstated." They are intentionally primitive in conception. The title page supports Bouchot's contention (p. 91) that Bonington may be commenting ironically on the Hours of Simon Vostre."

        Return... for a Copy of the Record of Conviction of Joseph Sudds and Patrick Thompson, Privates of the 57th Regiment...

      London: House of Commons, 14 July, 1828. Tall quarto, 10 pp. and docket title sheet; unfolded. Fascinating collection of published correspondence from Governor Darling to British Parliament concerning the dramatic punishment of troops dodging their service in the New South Wales 57th Regiment. Darling established his authoritarian reputation through disciplinary measures such as these 'in order that soldiers who wantonly sacrifice their character may not deceive themselves by a groundless hope of escaping punishment.'The first dispatch reveals seven recent cases of soldiers of the 57th maiming themselves or committing brazen crimes to escape the full term of their service (further transportation being preferable to time in the army). Darling made an example of two of the soldiers caught stealing cloth in broad daylight with no attempt at concealment, ordering that Joseph Sudds and Patrick Thompson 'be immediately stripped of their uniform in presence of the troops, and be dressed in felons clothing; that they be put in chains, and delivered in charge to the overseers of the "chain gangs," in order to their being removed to the interior, and worked on the mountain roads, being drummed, as rogues, out of the garrison.'Ordinarily this punishment and spectacular reversal of roles would not have warranted the concern of the Colonial Secretary. However, Joseph Sudds died shortly after starting work and Darling was attacked by the editor of the Australian for his callous treatment. Darling defends his actions in this correspondence, stressing that although chains are 'designated instruments of torture' those fitted to Sudds and Thompson weighed just over 13 pounds. Sudds was suffering from dropsy at the time of his arrest and his decease may have not have been the direct result of heavy labour.Unlike many of his contemporaries in the Colonial service, Darling is an engaging writer and his correspondence makes arresting reading while providing some insight into service conditions for the 57th Regiment. A fine copy.

        Otium academicum, continens descriptionem speciminum nonnullarum partium corporis humani et animalium subtilioris anatomiae ope in physiologicum usum praeparatarum, aliarumque, quibus morborum organicorum natura illustrator.

      Utrecht: Joh. Altheer, 1828. First edition, extremely rare, of Bleuland's last work, the beautiful catalogue of the author's collection of more than 2000 anatomical and pathological preparations. "Jan Bleuland (1756-1838) taught anatomy, physiology and obstetrics to medical students, and to surgical apprentices and midwives surgery and obstetrics using the vernacular. He was personal physician to king Louis Napoleoan. In the troublesome years 1811-1815, when the former university lead a poor existence, he did his utmost to preserve educational standards. Together with his very proficient collaborator Petrus Konig, he put together an anatomical collection of more than 2000 specimens. The collection was later acquired by the government for the Anatomical Museum in Utrecht, part of which is still on display. Bleuland wrote several superbly illustrated anatomical works" (de Moulin, p. 186). AE/RBH record only a single copy (1984); COPAC records copies at Royal College of Surgeons and Wellcome only. "During his career Bleuland published a number of illustrated anatomical works printed in color, showing a special interest in the fine structure of healthy and diseased states of the organs and tunics of the digestive tract. Bleuland made a collection of over two and a half thousand anatomical preparations, with the assistance of Petrus Koning, whom he had trained as his attendant and as a surgeon from 1800, when the boy was thirteen. The government bought Bleuland's collection for the Utrecht anatomical museum, and starting in 1826, Bleuland began producing both an inventory, Descriptio musei anatomici (Utrecht, 1826) and a more detailed illustrated catalogue of select specimens, Otium academicum (Utrecht, 1826-28). The Descriptio included human and specimens, both healthy and diseased, and animal ones, starting from the components of human blood and the heart. "Otium academicum consists of three parts dealing with anatomy and physiology, comparative anatomy, and pathological anatomy, respectively; they appeared in twelve installments between 1826 and 1828. The work includes seventy-two plates neatly partitioned: the illustrations of the first two parts include thirty-six intaglio plates printed in color; those of the third part include thirty-five black-and-white lithographs and one color intaglio plate--which will be discussed below. This systematic difference highlights that decisions about the medium employed were carefully planned: specifically, whereas the plates dealing with physiology and comparative anatomy focus on vascular structures highlighted by color injections leading to striking color contrasts, the pathological ones focus more on structural lesions, the exudation of lymph and other fluids, and the formation of membranes, whose appearance and texture were carefully described. Often the specimens were not injected and were kept in alcohol, thus no color was preserved, but the significant features could be effectively captured with the new technique of lithography, which was both more direct and cheaper than intaglio techniques. These relied on metal plates with recessed lines where the ink was placed, and mechanical pressure. By contrast, in lithography the portions to be inked were neither recessed nor raised, but rather simply drawn on a flat stone with an oily substance; the stone was then wet and inking relied on the notion that water and oil do not mix. Thus lithographic prints did not rely on mechanical pressure but on simple chemical properties. Only the first plate in the first part is signed by the Utrecht landscape and town scene artist Jan Hendrik Verheyen (1778-1846) as draftsman and H. De Bruyn (whose identity is unknown) as engraver; it is not clear who was responsible for the lithographs. Possibly because of his reliance on color, Bleuland worked with an artist like Verheyen, who had a very different background from William Clift. "While striking for the preparation and printing techniques, the overall impression of Bleuland's work is affected by the artificial look of the images: color in particular, while possibly true to his specimens, looks like a rather implausible rendering of what an anatomist may find in the morgue. Bleuland's scope in his sections on physiology and comparative anatomy, however, differed from that of the pathologist: he wished to highlight the physiological significance of his structural findings and in this respect, by highlighting the fine vessels of his specimens, his presentation was suitable. Indeed, he often seemed to rejoice at the beauty of his colored injections. Despite his criticism of the plate of the intestinal vessels in Bernhard Siegfried Albinus, Dissertatio de arteriis et venis intestinorum hominis (Leiden, 1736) due to Jan L'Admiral, there was a noticeable resemblance in their enterprises both for the emphasis on vessels and for the color printing, although artists and anatomists employed different techniques for preparing the specimens and for printing. A notable feature of Bleuland's work is that he often tells us how his preparations were made, which vessels he injected, how slowly he injected them, which colors and at times which substance he used--such as mercury. "As in previous works he published, Bleuland was especially interested in the vascular structure of tunics and membranes and focused on what he called anatomia subtiliore, relying on microscopy; plate after plate of his Icones anatomico-physiologicae display tunics and membranes. Overall, Bleuland tried to present an integrated approach to different areas, a feature highlighted by his inclusion in his collection and volume of physiology, comparative anatomy, and pathology. "Much like Baillie's Engravings [A Series of Engravings, tending to illustrate the Morbid Anatomy of some of the most Important Parts of the Human Body, London, 1799-1812], the six installments of the pathological section follow an anatomical rather than a nosological order and proceed approximately from the heart, pericardium, and lungs to the organs of digestion and generation. Much like Baillie's Engravings, Bleuland too portrayed individual specimens and focused on what seemed especially instructive rather than extraordinary. In some instances Bleuland highlighted the similarities between his own and Baillie's specimens, thus establishing parallels between their collections and treatises. While providing a description of the specimens and their significance, however, Bleuland sought to include case histories when possible, complete with a detailed account of the therapy; the fact that he assembled his own collection made it easier for him to provide case histories. Moreover, Bleuland has a much more philosophically loaded agenda; as a follower of the Göttingen physician Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, he frequently emphasized the role of vital and plastic forces ... "One plate differs significantly in the printing technique involved, reflecting a different preparation of the specimen. The case of pneumonia selected by Bleuland is exceptional in that he saw it as significant to physiology as well as to pathology; he prepared his specimen with injections to highlight the processes involved, showing not only a state of pleuro-peripneumonia but also the "mirabiles vires naturae reproducentes et formatrices," or the "admirable reproductive and formative forces of nature," reflecting his philosophical stance: it is the only pathological case illustrated with a color engraving, and quite an elaborate one at that. Bleuland claimed that even in a diseased state, nature acts through a plastic formative force repairing the damaged parts, so that even if it is not possible to revert to the organ's original form, nature produces a new organic apparatus. The figure involves color printing with several plates, one of them relying on aquatint-- for the green--so that each feature is painstakingly reproduced. Bleuland argued that all the portions of the lungs affected by inflammation were covered by a pseudo membrane formed by the exudation of "plastic lymph," which in the upper portion had developed a vascular structure. This plate is representative of Bleuland's overall emphasis on philosophical aspects and physiological processes of disease over a mere classification of structural changes" (Meli).

        Caution - Beware of the Tread Mill

      Halifax: T. Walker, 1828. Single sided printed broadside, approximately 225mm x 270mm in size. Browned and slightly creased, printing flaw affecting imprint, ink inscription to reverse with slight bleed through. Noting the appointment of Special Constables in Sowerby, needed due to the "idle, riotous, and disorderly conduct of various ill-disposed and mischievous persons ... who are in the habit of profaning the sabbath ... assembling ... for the purpose of drinking, gaming committing depredations, and for divers other illegal and malicious purposes". The treadmill was invented in 1818 by Sir William Cubitt, an English engineer and millwright, who invented the treadmill as a "method of employing human labour to grind corn, in the same way as animal power was used at the time. This invention was rapidly adopted in the principal gaols of the United Kingdom, the first being erected in Bury St Edmunds in 1819" (ODNB). Uncommon. First Edition. Unbound. Good. 4to. Broadside.

        Cours de mécanique appliquée aux machines

      Metz, Lithographie de l'école Royale de l'Artillerie et du Génie, 1828. 1828, 1828, in-8, grand de (2), 151 et (1) pages montées sur onglets, demi-veau noir moderne, plats gauffrés, dos muet, Seconde édition, inconnue des bibliographes, tirée à peu d'exemplaires, et entièrement lithographiée pour les élèves de l'Ecole Royale de l'Artillerie et du Génie. L'édition originale fut publiée en 1826. Il s'agit d'une publication imprimée à très petit nombre d'un cours professé par Poncelet entre 1825 et 1826. Comme nous l'indique Poncelet dans un avertissement qui figure au verso du titre : "Ces leçons ont été lithographiées, pour la première fois et à un petit nombre d'exemplaires, dans le courant de l'hiver de 1825 à 1826, pour l'usage particulier de MM. les Elèves de l'Ecole d'Application ; elles contenaient beaucoup de négligence, résultat inévitable de la précipitation avec laquelle elles ont été rédigées et lithographiées pendant la durée des cours". Ainsi, cette seconde édition fut revue et amendée par le Capitaine du Génie Gosselin, "qui a bien voulu se charger de faire, d'après [les] indications [de l'auteur], les corrections et changements les plus indispensables à la partie qui concerne le frottement des dents de roue, et à la note sur la manière de calculer, par une fonction linéaire, la valeur de la résultante des forces, etc." Jean Victor Poncelet, génial mathématicien, rénovateur de la géométrie projective (voir son "Traité des propriétés projectives des figures" de 1822), s'intéressa aussi à la mécanique et à la physique appliquée. Il fit paraitre en 1824 une importante étude d'hydraulique sur une roue à aubes courbes, en 1825, il fut chargé des cours de mécanique à l'École d'Artillerie et du Génie de Metz. Ceux-ci reçurent un accueil très favorable d'Arago à l'Académie des Sciences en 1828. Son cours qui dépasse de loin le simple cadre scolaire de l'Ecole Royale du Génie renouvelle profondément le génie mécanique. Il se divise, originellement, en trois sections (il ne cessera d'être augmenté jusqu'en 1836) : des considérations générales sur les machines en mouvement, des principaux moyens de régulariser l'action des forces qui agissent sur les machines, et d'assurer l'uniformité du mouvement, et de l'évaluation des résistances passives des machines. En manchette, 54 figures en noir, reproduisant des dessins originaux de l'auteur, montrent des figures géométriques ou des représentations de machines. Très rare édition, dont nous n'avons localisé, dans les fonds publics internationaux, qu'un seul exemplaire conservé à la bibliothèque municipale de Genève. Hormis une restauration en haut des 20 premiers feuillets, sans atteinte au texte, parfait exemplaire portant un ex-libris imprimé à la date en 1987, aux initiale "ML" et à la devise virgilienne, "labor omnia vincit improbus"

L'uscita di quest'opera venne pubblicizzata nel foglio d'annunzi della Gazzetta di Milano del 15 luglio 1819 in cui si legge "Una esatta carta topografica delle provincie di Milano e Pavia, che da lungo tempo desideravasi, sarà pubblicata alla fine del mese dalla ditta Pietro e Giuseppe Vallardi in un gran foglio papale...è stata interamente formata sopra la preziosissima mappa ridotta di tutto lo Stato, delineata ed incisa per opera dei celebri astronomi dell'I. R. Osservatorio di Milano, rarissima a vedersi perché mai non mai posta in commercio[ n° 136 del presente catalogo]...è stata anche arricchita di tutte le nuove strade e dei nuovi canali per cura del sig. ispettore generale delle acque e strade Carlo Parea; e gli editori nulla hanno trascurato, perché incisa fosse colla maggiore chiarezza, cosicchè potranno in essa distinguersi le stazioni postali, le ricevitorie di dogana ai confini, e le condizioni diverse dei terreni, come prati, valli, risaje, aratorj, boschi e foreste.". La carta si presenta applicata su tela a stacchi e conservata nel suo astuccio originale. Ottima conservazione.Bibliografia: Arrigoni-Bertarelli, n. 3170

        Über Interpolation.

      Berlin: Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1828. First printing of what is now called the Gauss-Newton interpolation formula; which enables one to predict the value of a quantity given a finite number of observations. Gauss had lectured on the interpolation formula at Göttingen in 1812; his then student Encke attended Gauss's lectures, and published his notes on them in the present paper almost two decades later. Gauss's interest in interpolation formulas derived from their obvious application to predicting the present position of a celestial body given several observations of its position in the past. Gauss had become famous by correctly predicting the position of the minor planet Ceres, discovered by G. Piazzi on 1 January 1801, on 7 December 1801 after its orbit had taken it behind the Sun. Although Gauss published nothing on the interpolation formula during his lifetime, a manuscript discussing it entitled 'Theoria Interpolationis Methodo Nova Tractata' was found in his Nachlass and published in Werke, vol. III, pp. 265-327. Encke (1791-1865) is now principally remembered for his work on comets. He predicted the orbit of a comet discovered in 1818 and when this was confirmed by observation the comet was named after him. His work brought him the Gold Medal of the Royal Astronomical Society. In 1825 he became professor at the Berlin Academy of Sciences and director of the Berlin Observatory. "After his appointment at Berlin, [he] undertook the editing of the Berliner Astronomisches Jahrbuch... With the support of his assistants... he issued the yearbooks for 1830-1866... Its issuance was a private matter, supported by the state, but not without economic risk. The opportunity to publish made possible the appearance of Encke's treatises in the yearbooks, dealing particularly with orbit determinations and perturbation computations" (DSB). In the present volume, the first of the yearbooks issued by Encke, the first section (pp. 1-235) is taken up with tables of ephemerides, while the second section (pp. 239-308) is taken up with five papers by Encke on the calculation of stellar occultations, on a stellar sextant, etc., as well as the paper on the interpolation formula. Provennace: Contemporary engraved bookplate of (third) Earl of Dunraven on front paste-down. Edwin Quin, third Earl of Dunraven, was educated at Eton where he showed a strong taste for astronomy; and afterwards spent three years at the Dublin Observatory under Sir William Rowan Hamilton. While the natural sciences occupied much of his attention; he was also deeply interested in the study of Irish antiquities, and was a prominent member of the Royal Irish Academy, the Celtic Society, and several archaeological associations. His Notes on Irish Architecture (two volumes, London: 1875-77) were published after his death in 1871. In: Berliner Astronomisches Jahrbuch für 1830... herausgegeben von J. F. Encke, pp. 265-284. The complete volume offered here: 8vo, pp. xii, 308, with one engraved plate of diagrams. Contemporary dark blue-green half-calf and marbled boards, smooth spine panelled by broad gilt rolled bands, one panel directly lettered in gilt, other panels with large gilt tool in centres, edges speckled green. A fine and clean copy.

        Prodrome d'une histoire des végétaux fossiles.

      Paris, Levrault, 1828. ____ Première édition. C'est dans ce très rare ouvrage qu'Adolphe Brongniart (1801-1876) a établi les bases de la paléontologie végétale. "Il constate, avant même que Darwin n'énonce ses principes de l'évolution (1859), une évolution progressive des végétaux au cours des grandes périodes géologiques, tandis que le passage d'une période à l'autre se marque par une rupture brutale. ... (C'est) un travail remarquable par sa précision et son actualité." En français dans le texte 241. Des rousseurs, avec une assez large tâche, en fond de cahier, en fin d'ouvrage. Provenance : Auguste Napoléon Parandier (Arbois, 1804-1905) ingénieur, inspecteur général des Ponts et Chaussées et Saint-Simonien. (avec son cachet). ***** First edition of the foundation of paleobotany. "Brongniart recognized the existence of four successive periods of vegetations, each characterized geologically." DSB 2, 492. Very rare. No copy in USA according to OCLC, (only microforme). In-8. Collation : VIII, 223 pp. Demi-basane brune, dos orné. (Reliure de l'époque.).
