        [Mandements, etc.].

      Autun: L'Imprimerie de Dejussieu, 1829–1852. 8vo (24.5 cm, 9.7"). 2 vols. I: [~550] pp. II: [~500] pp.; various paginations. A substantial gathering of printed pieces by and connected to the Bishop of Autun (1797–1851) — what appears to be => all of his official correspondence with his diocese and with various other clergymen from the time of his appointment through his death, as well as some of the letters from others to which he responded. While the first piece in the first volume was printed in Paris by Adrien le Clere & Cie., D'Héricourt subsequently used => his own designated local printer, and many of these pieces are attractively worked up with engraved headpieces, titles in decorative typefaces, and the Bishop's coat of arms vignette. Most of the pieces are in French, with four in Latin; the final few items deal with the bishop's death and the subsequent vacancy of the see.    Altogether, there are dozens of pastoral letters gathered here, over 40 mandements, and a handful of circulars; also present are instructions for catechisms and first communion, and a call for public prayer "pour l'entière cessation du choléra-morbus" (1832).    Given the nature of these publications and that they were printed not in Paris or another large printing center, it is clear why all are scarce, even in France. => Truly a remarkable compendium of church history during the French Restoration, July Monarchy, and Second Republic. 19th-century marbled paper–covered boards with roan shelfbacks, spines with gilt-stamped titles, dates, and bands; spines and extremities rubbed. All edges speckled. Two pages with neatly inked French annotations in (different) early hands; one title-page with early inked ownership inscription; one single-page letter addressed by hand to M. le Curé à Savianges; one order with a missing bullet point and the date added in a neat early inked hand; a few pieces with dates inked in. Several leaves with creases from mailing folds, one cover leaf with a postal cancellation from Buxy, 7 June 1840. Many leaves variously with generally very light, occasionally moderate waterstaining; occasional spots of foxing or staining scattered throughout, a few leaves age-toned, pages generally clean. => A trove of data in physically informative forms.

        Small Archive of Materials Relating to American Entrepreneur George Francis Train

      Very good. George Francis Train (1829-1904) was an extraordinarily energetic businessman who first made his fortune as the organizer of the White Diamond Line, which sent clipper ships around Cape Horn to San Francisco. He later became a great enthusiast of rail travel, establishing the first British street railway, and helping to fund and promote the Union Pacific Railroad. He ran for President of the United States in 1872, traveled around the world several times, and claimed to be the basis for the character of Phineas Fogg in Jules Verne's Around the World in 80 Days. This archive includes: 1) An ALS from Train to William Henry Bailhache, business manager of the State Journal (Springfield, IL), with original postmarked envelope, also signed by Train. Written from Omaha on December 18, 1868, the note reads in part "Chinese Mandarins - good for you. Means halfway station from Paris to Pekin. Passengers for China this way." 2) A Bailhache family copy of Train's book, My Life in Many States and Foreign Lands (First edition, 1902; very good, with spine slant). 3) A one-page, printed letter by Train, sent "to every Corporation in England, Ireland, and Scotland, and every one of the fifty-two parishes in London" complaining that the British have failed to accept his previous applications to install street railways and repeating his application: "Again I apply: this time as President of a Corporation, whose partners are among the wealthiest men of our nation, for the privilege of putting down Rails in your Streets, and, at the same time, give you this notice that I shall take every Legal measure to protect my Promoter, Introducer, and Patentee of Street Railways in Great Britain and Ireland....I seldom sow seed that does not ripen in time, and I reap the harvest thereof. The cordial reception of the American Yachts, and the recent friendly tone of the English Press, indicates that Englishmen, some day, will do justice to Americans." 4) A three-page printed document providing the text of Train's four previous applications (1859, 1861, 1862, 1864) to install street railways in Great Britain, and providing ridership statistics for the Surrey Side Street Railway, which he was permitted to established in 1861. Items 3 & 4 were likely enclosed with the letter to Bailhache. Both men were honored guests on the Union Pacific Railroad's celebratory excursion to the 100th Meridian (Nebraska) in 1866.

Overall a very good set of this rare American edition. "The Memoir, Correspondence, and Miscellanies: from the Papers of Thomas Jefferson was the first publication of Thomas Jefferson's papers after his death, and the only one available until Henry A. Washington's edition was published in 1853-1854. It was initially published by F. Carr in Charlottesville in 1829, with subsequent editions published in London, Boston, and Paris. The documents included were selected, transcribed and edited by Thomas Jefferson Randolph (Thomas Jefferson's oldest grandson), with the help of his mother and sisters, in an effort to take control of their grandfather's legacy and as a means to relieve some of the debt they'd been left with upon his death. They were somewhat successful in the first endeavor and not very successful in the second. The Memoir contains only a tiny portion of Jefferson's total body of correspondence and other papers, and was carefully edited by his family to avoid controversial subjects; they also made occasional errors in their transcriptions."

      Harrisburg, PA: Montgomery and Dexter, Printers, 1829. Full pebbled leather, 3.5" x 5.5" redleather gilt lettered label on spine. 174 pp. Extremely scarce first printing of this treatise by Winebrenner, who was written about extensively in Richard Kern; John Winebrenner and the Church of God. Gossard writes (in his lengthy essay John Winebrenner: From German Reformed Roots to the Churches of God) "...John Winebrenner was a German Reformed minister who founded a religious movement known as the Church of God.(1) In the 1820s, as pastor of the Salem German Reformed Church in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, he came into conflict with the vestry over his use of New Measures revivalism and other issues. Eventually this dispute led to his dismissal by the vestry and his removal from the rolls of the Synod of the German Reformed Church. He developed new theological views about the Bible, the church, free will, baptism, the Lords Supper, and foot washing that were in opposition to the beliefs of the German Reformed Church. In 1830 his followers officially organized, forming a denomination known as the Churches of God, General Conference. In the 1840s he became an antagonist of John Williamson Nevin, a professor at the German Reformed seminary in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania. Winebrenner's activities, letters, and publications were among the precipitating factors that led Nevin to write The Anxious Bench and "The Sect System," two important early expressions of what became known as the Mercersburg Theology..." VG, with significant foxing in areas. COvers are quite nice, a solid impression. Hard to imagine a finer copy being found. Extensive but very faint pencil writing on ffep.

        Leçons sur le calcul diff rentiel.

      Paris: Chez de Bure Frères, 1829. First edition, very rare. Following his earlier textbooks, the Cours d'Analyse (1821) and R sum des Leçons (1823), which provided the first rigorous formulation of the calculus of functions of a real variable, Cauchy in this work for the first time treats complex functions of a complex variable, defining their derivatives and extending to them many of the results of the differential calculus of a real variable obtained in the R sum , most notably Taylor's theorem. "The discoveries with which Cauchy's name is most firmly associated in the minds of both pure and applied mathematicians are without doubt his fundamental theorems on complex functions" (DSB). Cauchy also develops here a fully-fledged theory of infinitesimals, in many ways anticipating work of du Bois-Reymond in the late 19th century. The twenty-three Leçons of the present work present the results on differential calculus from the first part of the R sum , but in much greater detail (and almost three times the length). Most significant, however, is that Cauchy here extends the results from the R sum to the case of complex functions of a complex variable. This begins with the 11th Leçon, in which complex functions of a complex variable are introduced, the next Leçon giving the definition of the derivatives (and differentials) of such functions, and continues with the 13th Leçon which gives the extension of Taylor's theorem to the complex case. Further discussions of complex functions are found throughout the remaining Leçons. It is important to note that, although functions of a complex variable had been considered in earlier works by Cauchy, notably in his Mémoire sur les intégrales définies, prises entre des limites imaginaires (1825), those works had been concerned exclusively with the integration of such functions along paths in the complex plane (in modern terminology), and not on the properties of the functions themselves or their derivatives. The present work is also important for containing Cauchy's first and only fully-fledged theory of infinitesimals. The informal use of infinitesimals in the development of calculus began with Leibniz and Newton, but a more precise notion of infinitesimal had to wait until Cauchy's Cours. Although Cauchy is widely recognized for having introduced rigour into calculus, in fact he rarely used (even implicitly) the 'epsilon-delta' type of argument favoured by modern textbooks. Most of his arguments are, in fact, couched in the language of infinitesimals. But even the R sum considers only the simplest kind of functions of a base infinitesimal, namely polynomials. Cauchy announces in the Pr liminaires of the present work his intention to develop a far more general theory of infinitesimals, and this is carried out in the 6th Leçon, 'On the derivatives of functions which represent infinitely small quantities'. Cauchy defines the order of a function of an infinitesimal (which can by a real number or +∞), and gives examples of functions whose orders are 0 and +∞. Laugwitz has seen this as an anticipation of work of du Bois-Reymond and others in the late 19th century, and E. Borel, in his Leçons sur les S ries à Termes positifs (1902), explicitly refers to the 1829 Leçons in his discussion of du Bois-Reymond's work. The use of infinitesimals was only fully accepted by mathematicians following the work of Abraham Robinson in 1961. The present Leçons also contain some notable contributions to proving the existence of, and finding approximations for, the roots of algebraic and transcendental equations. The 14th Leçon proves a number of theorems on the existence of roots, which allow Cauchy to give, in particular, a new proof of the fundamental theorem of algebra. Finally, in a Note following the 23rd Leçon, Cauchy uses Taylor series to develop methods of finding approximate roots, recovering and extending results of Fourier. Very rare, we have located only one copy at auction in the past 35 years. D. Laugwitz, 'Infinitely small quantities in Cauchy's textbooks', Historia Mathematica 14 (1987), 258-274. 4to (242 x 186 mm), pp. [iv] ii [2] 289 [3], contemporary half calf, gilt spine lettering, upper part of spine slightly sunned, some light spotting throughout but in general very good, paper label with numbering to spine, top-edge gilt, ex-libris of Henri Viellard to free end-paper, book plate of the Institut Catholique de Paris to front pastedown, first and final text leaf with small rubber stamp of the Institut.

Godfrey Higgins (1772-1833), Was An English Magistrate And Landowner, Who Was A Prominent Advocate For Social Reform. He Was Also A Keen Antiquarian. He Is Now Best Known For His Writings On Ancient Myths, In Which He Asserts A Commonality Among Various Religious Myths, Which He Traces Back To The Supposed Lost Religion Of Atlantis. He Has Been Called A "Political Radical, Reforming County Magistrate And Idiosyncratic Historian Of Religions". Higgins' Work As A Magistrate Was Highlighted By Reformist Campaigns, Within Which He "Courageously Exposed The Scandalous Treatment Of Pauper Lunatics And Campaigned For Parliamentary Reform, Criticizing Excessive Taxation, The Corn Laws, And The Exploitation Of Children In Factories. In 1814 He Played A Leading Role In Uncovering The Abuse Of Patients At The York Lunatic Asylum After Rumors Of Serious Misconduct Had Come To His Attention. Higgins Was Appointed As A Governor Of The Asylum. In Anacalypsis Higgins Asserts A Commonality Among Various Religious Myths. "One Thing Is Clear-The Mythos Of The Hindus, The Mythos Of The Jews And The Mythos Of The Greeks Are All At Bottom The Same; And What Are Called Their Early Histories Are Not Histories Of Humankind, But Are Contrivances Under The Appearance Of Histories To Perpetuate Doctrines." Higgins Bluntly Declares That Every Ancient Author, Without Exception, Has Come To Us Through The Medium Of Christian Editors Who Have "Either From Roguery Or Folly, Corrupted Them All.". "Osiris And His Bull Were Black; All The Gods And Goddesses Of Greece Were Black: At Least This Was The Case With Jupiter, Bacchus, Hercules, Apollo, Ammon.The Goddesses Venus, Isis, Hecati, Diana, Juno, Metis, Ceres, Cybile, Are Black. " . "There Seems To Be Nothing Improbable In These Ethiopians Being The Tribe Of The Jews-The Tribe Of Jacob Or Israel. I Think These Ethiopians Did Come Under Jacob, And Did Settle In Goshen, And Gave The Names Of Maturea And Avaris To The City In Which They Dwelt." ."Solomon Was A Personification Or Incarnation Of Wisdom, And The Jews, Of Asia Minor Were A Tribe Or Colony From India, Of Black Buddhists, At Or About The Same Time With The Ioudi To Syria,Under The Brahmin."."Theseus, Bacchus, Æsculapius, &C., Were Saviours And Black Saviours Too. These Black Icons Were Made When Man Himself Was Black. He Made His God After Himself, And Then Said That Man Was Made After The Image Of God.

Large folding map, measuring 36 by 45 inches, sectioned and backed on linen, reinforced along edges with green cloth, housed in original green cloth slipcase with printed paper label. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $3500.Large engraved 19th-century map of Ireland, finely hand-colored in outline, with wonderful allegorical title cartouche.“Dr. Beaufort was educated at Trinity College, DublinÂ… He was ordained by the Bishop of Salisbury, and, in succession to his father, was rector of Navan, County Meath, from 1765 to 1818. In 1790 he was presented by the Right Hon. John Foster to the vicarage of Collon, County Louth. He afterwards built the church at Collon, where he remained until his death in 1821Â… Dr. Beaufort took a prominent part in the foundation of Sunday schools and in the preparation of elementary educational works. The Royal Irish Academy owed its formation in great measure to his exertions. His most important work was his map of Ireland, published in 1792, and accompanied by a memoir of the civil and ecclesiastical state of the country. All the places marked on the map are systematically indexed in the memoir and assigned to their respective parishes, baronies, &c. In the preface the author states that this map was prepared from original observations to remedy the defects of existing maps of Ireland. Competent authorities pronounce it and the memoir to be valuable contributions to geography” (DNB). First published in 1792. Without BeaufortÂ’s 1792 companion volume, Memoir of a Map of Ireland. Some wear to original case. Near-fine condition.

        An incredible literary find: Francis Scott Key, the author of America's National Anthem, adds to the work of Scotland's national poet, Robert Burns. Key's poem was discovered in (and offered with) a period journal with phenomenal provenance and Jewish interest.

      n.p., c. 1829. 3.5" x 1.25". "Autograph Manuscript Signed, ""F S Key Esqr,"" 1 page, 3.5"" x 1.25"", [n.p.], c. 1829, being four lines of a poem originally affixed in an 18mo leather-bound journal kept by Elizabeth Willis Gloster Anderson (1796-1873) of Warrenton, North Carolina. Light marginal wear and toning to manuscript, else fine condition; the journal has some loose pages, marginal chipping and wear to places, binding loose, but in overall good condition.Key's manuscript is an original stanza added to Robert Burns' poem ""John Anderson, My Jo,"" transcribed in Mrs. Anderson's journal by her friend Ellen Mordechai (1790-1884), a noted teacher and author, on September 9, 1827. Miss Mordechai began the transcription with her own original lines to personalize the poem for Elizabeth's husband who was also named John Anderson (and born to Scottish parents):""John Anderson, my Jo, John when nature first beganTo try her canny hand, John, her master-work was Man,And you among them a', John, so trig from top to toe,She prov'd to be no journey-work, John Anderson, my jo.John Anderson, my jo, John, ye were my first conceit, I think nae shame to own, John, I lo'ed you ear' and late[?]They say y're turning auld, John, and what tho's that so,Ye're ay the same kind man to me, John Anderson, My Jo.""She then commits a mostly faithful transcription of Burns' original, a poem celebrating love maturing into old age (with spelling and word variations transcribed without comment):""John Anderson, my Jo, John , when we were first acquaintedYour locks were like the raven, your bonny brow was brentBut now your brow is bald, John, your locks are like the snow,Yet [sic, But] blessings on your frosty pow, John Anderson, my jo. John Anderson, my jo, John, we clamb the hill thegither,And mony a canty day, John, we've had wi' ane anither; Now we maun totter down, John, And hand in hand we'll go,And sleep thegither at the foot, John Anderson, my jo!""Francis Scott Key, obviously appreciating the sprit of the additional text that preceded the original Burns verse, contributed his own four original lines to the verse, which reads in full:""John Anderson, my Joe John, from that sleep again will wake,And another Man's [?] light, on our opened eyes shall break, And we'll rise in youth & beauty, to that bright land to goWhere life and love shall last for eye, John Anderson my Joe""Although Elizabeth Anderson's friend Ellen Mordechai wrote `these lines in 1827, Key likely added his lines to the poem in February 1829 when her first cousin, Congressman Daniel Turner (1796-1860) married Key's daughter Ann Arnold Key (1811-1884). She married Turner, a West Point graduate who had served in the War of 1812, on February 25, 1829 in a ceremony in Washington. Turner, who was completing a single two-year term in Congress, returned to Warrenton, North Carolina with his new bride a day before Andrew Jackson's inauguration on March 4, 1829. (Marc Leepson, What So Proudly We Hailed, Francis Scott Key, A Life, 2014, 163)On the verso of the slip bearing Key's additional stanza is a note, written in an unknown hand, identifying the slip: as by ""Mr. Key. Author of the Star Spangled Banner...""In an unlikely, but serendipitous confluence of events, Ann Arnold Key's husband Daniel Turner later took a position as superintendent of the Warrenton Female Academy in 1846. That institution was founded in 1809 by Ellen Mordechai's father Jacob Mordecai (1762-1838), a prominent Jewish merchant who settled in Warrenton in 1792. He founded the school as a non-denominational institution and ran it until 1819, when he sold the school and moved his family to Richmond, Virginia. Provenance: Elizabeth Willis Gloster Anderson (1796-1873); Mary May Anderson (1821-1879); Elva May Yancey (1842-1948); Alice Graham (b. 1877); bequeathed by Miss Graham to the family of the most recent owner in Alabama who was one of her music students. The journal is accompanied by copies of several newspaper articles dating from 1906 describing the Key manuscript as owned by Miss Alice Graham."
