        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.

        Le règne animal distribué d'après son organisation, pour servir de base à l'histoire naturelle des animaux et d'introduction à l'anatomie comparée

      1829 - 5 volumes, 20 planches Paris, Déterville, 1829-1830, in-8, 5 volumes, 20 planches gravées sur cuivre au tome III, demi-basane verte, dos lisse et fileté, Rare. 20 planches gravées sur cuivre d'après Laurillard. Exemplaire enrichi d'une planche d'erpétologie ajoutée au tome II, provenant du Dictionnaire des sciences naturelles (Hippolyte Cloquet Planches, Seconde partie, Zoologie, erpétologie fossile : ichtyosaurus et plesiosaurus). Deuxième édition de cet ouvrage qui pose les fondements de l'anatomie comparée. Il est le fruit de tout une vie d'étude des animaux vivants et fossiles. La première édition fut publiée en 1817, chez le même éditeur. Pierre Latreille collabora avec Cuvier à la classification des crustacés, arachnides et insectes. Grâce à l'importance et la qualité de son travail d'observation, de description et de classification en histoire naturelle, Cuvier pose les bases d'une science systématique en Anatomie Comparée. Pour la première fois, on applique une telle méthode d'analyse et de comparaison à l'ensemble du règne animal. Sa classification du monde animal, qui se divise en articulés, vertébrés, mollusques et radiaires, repose sur l'idée que les critères anatomiques et physiologiques des animaux étaient dus à leur fonction et habitats et non l'inverse.

        The turf expositor; containing the origin of horse racing, breeding for the turf, training, trainers, jockeys; cocktails, and the system of cocktail racing illustrated; the turf and its abuses; the science of betting money, so as always to come off a winner, elucidated by a variety of examples; the rules and laws of horse racing; and every other information connected with the operations of the turf.

      8vo., contemporary linen backed boards with paper spine label. pp. x, 180[12] adverts (dated Nov 1929). Covers rubbed, slight bumping to corners, and paper spine label a little chipped, some browning and spotting, a good copy of a scarce item. First edition. A most informative volume on all aspects of horse racing, including betting. The author is forthright in his opinions. In his thumbnail descriptions of race tracks he comments on Epsom racecourse "Epsom Course can be properly called neither circular, oval, or triangular. It is altogether one of the worst courses in England". Talking about jockeys he comments "The third or Dirty class are remarkable for their slovenly, dirty and unworkmanlike appearance;- it is no uncommon occurrence to see these wretched apologies for Jockeys ride in dirty jackets, dark greasy corduroys, and gaiters of similar complexion". In his chapters on betting the author goes into some depth on the multiplication and division of vulgar fractions.

        Samling af 50 smaae Landkort I Træsnit til Brug for Skolerne paa Landet. [Collection of 50 small maps in woodcut for the use of the schools in the country].

      [Denmark]: S.E. Holm, 1829. Small quarto, with 50 leaves of wood-engraved maps, handcoloured in outline; in contemporary half calf, some inoffensive early manuscript annotations. A very rare Danish atlas for schools, the first such work published, with a wonderful double-page world map, and another plate depicting Australia and the Pacific.This simple but charming work was published by a Danish school teacher called Søren Eliasen Holm, who himself paid for the printing and publishing of the atlas. His main purpose was to give poor village children an idea about geography, and it was much republished in newer, often improved, editions. Not much is known about the enigmatic Holm, although the extraordinary and disturbing fact is recorded that he was banned from the education system in 1814 after he castrated himself to avoid having more children.As would be expected, many of the maps are devoted to Scandinavia and Europe, including 28 of various regions of Denmark and the Danish Islands. The atlas does include several attractive plates of the rest of the world: apart from the Australian map, there are also maps of individual European countries including Great Britain, France, and Turkey, as well as the continent of Africa, and the Americas (this last bound in upside down). Most of the maps are signed by Holm, and dated from 1818 to 1826; the Australian map is dated 1823.The atlas was released in numerous edition between 1819 and at least 1840, with the online catalogues of Det Kongelige Bibliotek recording a series of copies. The work is not, however, well known outside Denmark, with OCLC unable to list any copies of any edition. Some wear to boards and extremities, slight worming at top of gutter barely affecting some of the plates, a very good copy.

        Narrative and Successful Result of a Voyage in the South Seas, performed by order of the Government of British India, to ascertain the actual fate of La Perouse's Expedition, interspersed with accounts of the religion, manners, customs and cannibal practices of the South Sea Islanders.4504313

      London: Hurst, Chance, and Co. 1829. Two volumes, octavo, with two folding lithographs (one coloured), plate of a canoe, and a folding map of Mannicolo; bound without the half-titles in contemporary polished calf gilt, continental coat-of-arms in blind at centre of each cover. First edition: a very fine presentation copy in a handsome binding. Forty years after the disappearance of La Pérouse, Peter Dillon, a sandalwood trader, called at the Solomons, and when a silver sword guard was brought out, rightly suspected that he had stumbled on the solution to the mysterious disappearance of the great French voyage. He returned to India, persuaded the government of Bengal to sponsor an expedition and sailed to the Solomons via Tasmania, New Zealand and Tonga. At Vanikoro, he conducted a careful investigation among the natives regarding the shipwrecks, and was able to obtain many relics including a portion of the stern of the Boussole, ships' bells stamped "Bazin m'a fait" monogrammed silver, metal fragments and mill stones known to have been aboard. One native (depicted on a folding plate) had a glass piece from a thermometer in his nose. On the successful receipt of his report and this material in France, Dillon was made a Chevalier of the Legion of Honour, his expenses defrayed and granted a pension.Dillon, described as "eccentric, quick of temper and with a vivid vocabulary" (Dunmore), includes a scathing examination of the legal system of Tasmania and New South Wales. Aboard ship had been a Dr. Robert Tytler with whom relations were so strained that Dillon was accused of insanity, the doctor in turn arrested for attempts to incite mutiny, and upon arrival at Hobartown, assault charges were placed against Dillon and the ship sequestered. Over 40 pages relate to the questionable legal proceedings between judge and governor, and the appendix reprints articles from Australian and Indian sources on Dillon's treatment in what he called a "land of corruption and injustice" Provenance: Inscribed "From the Author", with an unknown early owner's armorial stamps on the bindings; later in the libraries of W.R. Griffiths and Rodney Davidson (sale 7 March 2005, lot 107), with bookplates. In fine condition.

Provenance: Sylvestre Francois Lacroix (1765-1843), French mathematician. Dedication by Poisson in black ink to title page "A Monsieur Lacroix de la part de l'auteur" and a few annotations in black ink by Lacroix. ----Impossibly rare offprint of Poissons important treatise on population statistics which was published in vol. 9 of the Memoires de l'Academie Royale des Sciences de l'Institut de France, 1830. Poisson here reformulates Laplace's analysis of the error dispersion for distribution of the sexes at birth. Poisson gave a reading of his paper before an assembly of the Academy. With this and two other papers by Poisson published in 1835 and 1837, the mathematician rescued the analytical theory of probabilities from the singularity of its first Laplacian expression. They led Poisson to what he called the "law of large numbers" (E.Brian & M.Jaisson, The Descent of Human Sex Ratio at Birth, 2007, pp.44-50). Only two copies of this offprint recorded in COPAC and WorldCat (Ushaw College, Durham and Berlin State Library). Very Good.

        ALS to her daughter Janet Ranken.

      [Sydney or Scotland]: 21 August, 1829. Three-page ALS in a neat but unfinished hand, 228 x 185 mm., original red wax seal, stamp for the Sydney post office but not otherwise marked, very good. A charming and rather rare example of a woman writing from Sydney in the 1820s. The letter was written to Janet Ranken, the wife of the important Bathurst pastoralist and settler George, one of the first to take up land in the region. On George Ranken see a long entry in the Australian Dictionary of Biography, and the well-regarded 1916 memoir The Rankens of Bathurst. The only mystery about the letter is whether it was written in Scotland (where it is probably likely that Mrs Hutchison was still living) or Sydney (the sealed letter has only one postal stamp, for Sydney): was Janet Ranken's mother also an immigrant to New South Wales?The letter was written to her daughted Janet "Jenny" Ranken Hutchison, who had then been living in Bathurst for several years, having married the pastoralist George Ranken in May 1821 before the newlyweds sailed on the Lusitana. Ranken leased property from John Piper in Sydney, and was one of the first to be granted land in Bathurst, naming his property Kelloshiel, to which property they moved in 1823.This letter dates from 1829, when the Rankens were firmly settled in Bathurst, and her mother opens with some pointed chiding of young Mrs. Ranken, who has let her duties as a correspondent slip, the more so as reports have reached her that she George have had a new child, a daughter, as long ago as December 1828, and yet "not one word from George or you" (the lack of any mail "was not the way you used to do on similar occasions" notes her mother primly). Mrs Hutchison includes an interesting aside that "you have often spoek of coming home but so long as you are so [word] in the family way I do not see how it is posable".The rest of the long letter is taken up with fabulous gossip regarding all of their acquaintance, all told in a breathless and sometimes startlingly direct style: "we had Jessie and Tibbie Taylors here lately about a week", starts one passage, "as poor and as proud as ever" A mutual friend Marion has got word of the death of her husband, "but I am one among many who does not believe he is dead." Her son Peter is up to his old tricks ("if he knew the anxiety that his old Mother and Sisters are in about him"), and her daughters are "all in the usual (?) way often complaining tho nothing deadly I think amongst them". A mysterious Mr. Smith, well known to Janet, "is nothing at all going about like an old beggar man, patching and working with Bees... ". While the uppity "Mr and Mrs Otto have now got - to the astonishment of the natives - a gigg, but tho it is now nine months since she got it she has been just once in it." Their niece Jean Otto is down to buy her "wedding draws" (?), and is to be married to an "active steady young man a writer" who had stayed many times with the Otto family. And so on.The letter concludes with a return to her heartfelt wish that she could know about what is happening in Bathurst: "I wish you would let me know what you are doing with your boys and how many is begun to learn and what is Miss Rankin like and all about them."A short obituary of Janet Ranken was published in the Maitland Mercury & Hunter River General Advertiser for 25 October 1883, noting that she had initially stayed in Petersham while Kelloshiel was being laid out, but not noting who she was living with at that time - it is possible that the letter, that is, dates from Petersham. Old folds.

        Autograph letter signed "Malibran" to "Monsieur [?Carlo] Severini."

      2 pp. of a bifolium with integral address panel. Quarto. N.d. [ca. 1829-1832]. In black ink. On stationery with watermark "Gaudin Fils 1828." In French (with translation). Although Malibran is once again confined to bed due to poor health, she will sing in several upcoming performances. "My health is about the same, given that yesterday I got out of bed for the first time and was obliged to return home very quickly. I am once again confined to bed. Nevertheless I expect to keep my word and take a chance Wednesday in the role of Zerlina [in Mozart's Don Giovanni] for our good [Carlo] Zucchelli. Saturday I will play Rosina [in Rossini's La Barbiere di Siviglia] if you do not object to this opera, which is the least tiring of all my roles and which will put me at least risk of a relapse. Please therefore put in all the newspapers that my perfomance will take place Sunday, because if you don't plan to announce it until Wednesday evening there will not be enough time to inform the public about it. Mr. [Charles] de Bériot is kindly taking charge of the letter I have addressed to Mr. [Louis] Véron. You will have the reply as soon as it is written to me." Slightly worn; creased at folds; small edge tears; occasional light smudging, not affecting legibility; lacking portion of central fold and right edge of first leaf, with loss of several words; remnants of wax seal and some offsetting and bleeding to blank third page. Together with: A carte de visite photographic reproduction of a bust-length lithograph of Malibran published by Pierre Petit in Paris. Ca. 102 x 59 mm. Slightly worn, soiled, and foxed; trimmed and laid down to mount. Spanish mezzo-soprano Maria Malibran was the daughter of tenor and composer Manuel Garcia the Elder, and sister of the famed singers Pauline Viardot (1821-1910) and Manuel Garcia the Younger (1805-1906). She made her London début at the King's Theatre in June 1825 as Rosina (Il barbiere), and "her Paris début at the Théâtre Italien in Semiramide in 1828, where she also created the title role in Halévy's Clari (1828). She reappeared at the King's Theatre in 1829 in Otello, and then sang alternately in Paris and London until 1832, when she went to Italy... She also created the title role in Donizetti's Maria Stuarda on 30 December 1835, causing a famous scandal by ignoring some changes that the Milanese censors had insisted upon. Bellini adapted the role of Elvira in I puritani (1835, Paris) for her to sing in Naples, but the opera was turned down by the management and she never sang it. Her first marriage having eventually been annulled, she married the violinist Charles de Bériot [1802-1870] in March 1836, and at Drury Lane in May of that year created the title role in Balfe's The Maid of Artois, which he had written for her. A riding accident when she was pregnant resulted in her death during the Manchester Festival. To judge from the parts adapted for her by both Donizetti and Bellini, the compass (g to e ), power and flexibility of Malibran's voice were extraordinary. Her early death turned her into something of a legendary figure with writers and poets during the later 19th century." Elizabeth Forbes in Grove Music Online. The recipient of this letter was most likely Carlo Severini, co-director of the Théâtre Italien in Paris from 1825 until 1838. "[His] tenure was one of the high points in the history of the Théâtre Italien, a period that featured the Parisian premières of works such as Anna Bolena and La sonnambula, the world première of I puritani and regular appearances by such great singers as Grisi, Rubini, Tamburini and Lablache. In [1838] Severini met a premature death in a fire at the theatre, apparently in an attempt to save administrative papers." Steven Huebner in Grove Music Online. Louis Véron (1798-1867) was director of the Paris Opéra from 1831-1835. "He was the first director to be permitted to operate the institution as a private enterprise, albeit with a large state subsidy and surveillance by a government commission. With the financial backing of the Spanish banker Alexandre Aguado and new business strategies that included increasing the number of long-term subscribers, Véron amassed a considerable fortune during his four-year directorship. He steered the Opéra to a position of renewed prominence in Parisian society by creating a meeting ground for the aristocracy and upper castes of the bourgeoisie." Steven Huebner in Grove Music Online. Carlo Zucchelli (1793-1879) was a noted Italian bass. Between 1823 and 1835 he "divided his time between the King's Theatre in London and the Théâtre Italien in Paris. Thereafter he sang at Bologna, Rome, Livorno and elsewhere in Italy, finally retiring from the stage in 1842." Grove Music Online. This letter was most likely written between 1829 and 1832, during which time Malibran sang frequently in Paris, and at the Théâtre Italien in particular. The watermark, dated 1828, serves as a terminus post quem, and Severini's death, in 1838, as a terminus ante quem. Considering the initial acquaintance of Bériot and Malibran, which did not take place until 1829, and Malibran's departure for Italy in 1832, however, this letter was more likely written between these dates. In any case, it is certainly unlikely that Malibran wrote it after 1835, when Louis Véron left the Paris Opéra and Zucchelli returned to Italy.

        Ce qu'on dit et ce qu'on pense [What one says and what one thinks]

      Paris: Gihaut Frères, 1829 - 'What One Says And What One thinks'Forty-Eight Fine Hand-Colored Lithograph Plates by Jean-Gabriel Scheffer[SCHEFFER, Jean-Gabriel]. Ce qu'on dit et ce qu'on pense [What one says and what one thinks]. Paris: Gihaut Frères, [1829]. Folio (13 1/2 x 10 1/4 inches; 343 x 260 mm.). No title-page as issued. Twenty-five hand colored lithograph plates. The plates depict the many manifestations of hypocrisy in French society of the time. The plates are numbered consecutively up to 36, at which point they jump to 49 and then continue consecutively up to 60, for a total of 48. The last plate with two expert fore-margin repairs, some occasional light marginal foxing otherwise fine.Contemporary half red roan over diced red paper boards, smooth spine ruled, decorated and lettered in gilt. Near fine.This is the first time that we have ever seen this exceptionally rare series of plates.As the three copies of this work found on OCLC First Search - Morgan Library, (NY), USA) Ex. Gordon Ray ; Bibliotheque de Geneve (Switzerland) and Bibliotheque Publique et Univ. Neuchatel (Switzerland) all have 48 plates, and there is no evidence whatsoever that anything was excised from this book, it is our belief that the missing numbers were deliberately withdrawn, or are early versions of the final group of plates. Providing some circumstantial backing for this theory is that Plate No. 49, the first of the final group, depicts a crowd greeting Louis Philippe with "Vive le Roi!" after the July Revolution in which he rose to power. Four of the early plates were lithographed by Villain. Almost all the plates, including one of the ones credited to Villain, are also marked by Gihaut, unless there are no names at all. The British Museum owns just one print from this book - one of the withdrawn plates #46. Adding to the confusion or complexity of the printing is that Charles Tilt, the London publisher, is credited, along with Gihaut, on plates 31 thru 36. Swiss genre painter and lithographer Jean Gabriel Scheffer (1797-1876), who studied with Regnault and was a friend of Corot, Aligny, and Léopold Robert. His work was shown at the Salon de Paris beginning in 1822; his reputation as a designer of many wryly humorous lithographs, typically signed "J.S.," was firm. The plates:1.

        Narrative of an official visit to Guatemala from Mexico

      London: John Murray, 1829. First edition, 12mo, pp. xii, vi, 528, 8 (ads and subscribers' list for Alcedo's A Dictionary of America as revised by Thompson); largely unopened; folding frontispiece map hand-colored in outline; a very pretty copy in original green cloth, paper label on spine; spine browned, else near fine. Palau 331831; Sabin 95511. A very early publisher's cloth binding. While the earliest publisher's cloth bindings date from the third quarter of the 18th-century - mostly canvas over boards, and usually for school texts and readers, the modern concept of the publisher's binding in cloth originated with William Pickering, ca. 1828. Other examples, usually on gift books, were sometimes bound in moire silk, or velvet, ca. 1828-1830. This example, published by Murray (certainly among his earliest examples), is in full cloth, and the printed label gives the price as 10s. 6d. (presumably so bound). A binder's ticket at the back identifies S. Woolnough, 7 Upper James Street, Golden Square. Another interesting feature is that the subscribers' list (nearly 400 names) is for an entirely different book.

      London, 1829. Sixty-five leaves, including title and contents. Folio. Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, neatly rebacked with the original spine laid down, a.e.g. Corners lightly worn. Two plates tanned, some minor scattered foxing else. Very good. Accompanied by a fine three page A.L.S. from the author to Thomas Webster written in delightful nautical prose and including a sketch. Edward William Cooke (1811-80), a Londoner, was the son of an engraver. He created these fine etchings, including plates of H.M.S. Victory, which are considered to be some of the most accurate representations of watercraft of his era. This work was first published in 1829 with just fifty plates. Cooke was a friend of and collaborator with several prominent artists including Clarkson Stanfield, Samuel Prout, Augustus Callcott and John Sell Cotman. The letter included here, postmarked at Barnes in 1836, reads in part: "...I am pretty salubrious again, my ship in port, my bulk broken, derrick rigged & all hands ready to discharge cargo. I may also hint that my cook is aboard, tormentors in hand & all ready at the cheering pipe of the boatswain to fork out "prime mess beef" & "lobscouse" when Admiral Thomas Webster may be pleased to inspect the squadron. Yes, let his broad pennant but be seen in the offing & he may expect a salute of twenty-one from a neat little Brig with her main topsail aback...he'll not range within scope of your Forecastle long swivels but with Fore to'gallant struck he'll drop astern with all due obeisance as the service requires giving his beloved Admiral every advantage of the weather gauge. ... You will observe with dismay that the union Jack is at the Peak, Quarter masters with drawn swords in hands at the gangway, Marines under arms at the Quarter deck - myself & five Captains seated in the ward-room - fetters & chains clanking in the cockpit with a noose well stopped at the Yard arm. Yes the congees to a superior officer are over & this superior officer must prepare himself for Court Martial, loose his epaulettes, unbuckle his sword & take his station alongside of H.M.S. advocate. ... let him tremble from yard-arm to yard-arm from truck to keel. The judgement's pronounced, the flag slowly lowers, the muffled drum rolls & the whistle shrieks - the gun fires &c &c!..." A handsome production with a nice letter from the author.

        Des caractères physiologiques des Races Humaines considérés dans leurs rapports avec l'Histoire. Lettre à M. Amédée Thierry.

      Paris, Compère le Jeune, 1829. - in-8. 2ff. 129pp. Cartonnage mod. genr. anc. Edition Originale de ce texte du naturaliste français William Edwards (1777-1842) qui marque la naissance de l'Ethnologie. "L'Ethnologie prit son origine dans les travaux des historiens du XIXs. et dans la fameuse lettre adressée en 1829 par William Edwards à Amedée Thierry intitulée: "Des caractères physiologiques des races humaines." qui marque une date importante dans l'histoire de l'anthropologie. W. Edwards. montre que les principaux caractères physiques d'un peuple peuvent se conserver à travers les siècles dans la population malgré toutes les influences du climat et des croisements. Ainsi naquit l'Ethnologie qui chercha à retracer l'histoire des groupes humains en s'appuyant sur les traditions historiques, sur les modifications successives de leur langue, de leurs techniques, de leurs coutumes, de leur réligion et de leurs traits physiques" (Histoire de la Science, Pléiade, pp. 1341-1343). En 1839 Edwards fonda la première société savante consacrée à cette science: la "Société Ethnologique de Paris". Rousseurs assez marquées. Bon exemplaire par ailleurs.

        Atlas of delineations of cutaneous eruptions

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown & Green, 1829. Thomson, Anthony Todd (1778-1849). Atlas of delineations of cutaneous eruptions; illustrative of the description in the practical synopsis of cutaneous diseases of Thomas Bateman, M.D. F.L.S. 8vo. vii, 112pp. 29 hand-colored engraved plates (numbered 1-17, 18a, 18b, 18-27), some with tissue guards. London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green, 1829. 232 x 166 mm. Half calf gilt, marbled boards ca. 1829, light wear and rubbing. Occasional scattered foxing, but very good. Engraved bookplate of William Edmund Image (1807-1903), surgeon and well-known stamp collector. First Edition. Thomson, one of the British pioneers of dermatology, worked with Thomas Bateman at the latter’s Carey Street clinic and prepared updated editions of Bateman’s Practical Synopsis of Cutaneous Diseases after the author’s death in 1821. “Realizing the value of Bateman’s Delineations of Cutaneous Diseases [1817] in the instruction of students, which on account of expense was out of reach of most of them, [Thomson] published in 1829 an Atlas of Cutaneous Eruptions [sic] which reproduced on a smaller scale many of the illustrations from Bateman’s Atlas and added a number of others” (Gray, p. 458). In 1838 Thomson was appointed professor of materia medica and therapeutics at the newly founded University of London (now University College, London), where he conducted a clinic for skin diseases at University College Hospital, the first clinic of its kind to be established at a teaching hospital.
