        A Greek and English Lexicon; adapted to the Authors Read in the Colleges and Schools of the United States, and to Other Greek Classics Henry David Thoreau's Copy

      Hilliard, Gray, Little and Wilkins, 1829 The signature is an early one – somewhere around 22 years of age. Thoreau had studied Greek and the classics at Harvard, graduating in 1837 and began translating Aeschylus in his journal circa 1839 - his translation of Prometheus Bound would appear in the third installment of The Dial magazine in 1843. This is a young Thoreau still developing as a man and an intellectual – obviously using this book heavily, as it contains lengthy annotations on 16 pages – his additions of Greek words with definitions. ******************* Condition – good. Preliminary leaves lacking, front cover replaced by a later cloth and contemporary leather hybrid – but it's a sturdy book(unlike most rare books, you can set aside your paranoia in handling this one. Go ahead and have a pizza, then kick back with Thoreau) and the annotations are in bold ink. It was gifted in 1874 by his devoted sister, Sophia, to the Concord Library and later acquired by superstar collector Stephen Wakeman(according to the documented history of the book). The book doesn't need any trinkets of imaginative dressing from me, but to go full bore, it's more than conceivable that he brought this along to Walden Pond along with other pieces from his library. ************* Wakeman was amongst the greatest collectors of all time – in a golden era of bad and boujee collectors that continuously one-upped each other by gobbling up the choicest pieces. He was the OG Thoreau collector, amassing the largest, most comprehensive assortment of HDT stuff, even a bookshelf made by HDT – that's next level. If you're a book collecting nerd with an interest in American literary icons, pick up some auction catalogs from the turn of the century – inscribed rarities from the greats would appear like it was another ho hum day at the office. It's heady stuff.*********** It's the 200th anniversary of this icon's birth. I won't ramble about his legend – we're all aware. What is pertinent to convey is that pieces like this will continue to be more impossible to procure the longer time expands the void between us and him. One hundred fifty stacks is significant, but the big institutions will continue to inter these pieces - leaving the collecting public out in the cold. You can pick up nice copies of HDT's books at anytime, even fragments of his manuscript leaves – many of which have no lofty significance. This piece does have such significance(a book heavily used by a legend to shape his mind is pretty lofty) and now is your shooting star-esque window of time to own a museum piece.

        Zwei Jahre in Neu Südwales...

      Leipzig: Hartmann, 1829. Octavo, original half roan. A very good copy of the uncommon German translation of Cunningham's valuable account of the colony, considered an Australian classic: 'an acute observer and possessed a pleasant literary style, so that Two Years in New South Wales remains the best as well as the fullest picture of the colony in the 1820s' (ADB). The German translation and additional notes are by A. Kaiser.Cunningham made four voyages to New South Wales as surgeon-superintendent of convict ships and had taken up land on the Hunter River in 1825 before writing this most important account of the evolving and distinctive characteristics of the Australian people. His observations on the unique Australian vocabulary and accent, as well as on the physical characteristics of the Australian-born youth is the classic statement of the early colonial era.Ferguson originally knew the National Library copy only, but added the Mitchell and the then Public Library of Victoria to his census. As the title-page notes, the translation was based on the second revised edition of the original work (London, 1827). The paper shows some characteristic browning; original half roan, worn with repairs at the corners.

        Elementos de Economia Politica con aplicación particular a España. Dedicadas al Rey Nuestro Señor.

      Madrid, imprenta de Don Ramon Verges, 1829. - 2 parties à pagination continue en 1 volume in-4. XX. 315pp. Plein veau raciné, dos lisse orné (fraîche reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale de cet ouvrage qui marque un jalon dans la bibliographie espagnole de l'Economie Politique. Originaire de Zaragoza, Fernando de Gregorio, Marquis de Valle Santoro (1785-1833), est un personnage important mais mal connu parmi les premiers économistes espagnols. Il occupa pourtant la première chaire d'Economie Politique à la Sociedad Economica de Madrid, et son ouvrage constitue notamment le premier traité généraliste d'Economie Politique publié en Espagne par un auteur espagnol. Cette synthèse des idées de Smith et de Say appliquées à l'Espagne fut aussi l'un des premiers à théoriser l'économie nationale du pays, et il contenait un programme complet de réformes économiques visant à moderniser l'économie du pays. Ex-libris manuscrit ancien sur le faux-titre: "Soy de Geronimo Salvador vecino de Mendigorria". Bel exemplaire. Cf. Augello et Guidi, The Economic Reader, p. 163.

        Physiologie du goût ou méditations de gastronomie transcendante; ouvrage théorique, historique et à l'ordre du jour, dédié aux gastronomes parisiens, par un professeur. ... 3e édition.

      Paris, Sautelet, Mesnier, 1829, 2 vol. in 8°, de 2ff. 410pp. & 2ff. 432pp., ill. de 2 front. litho par H. Monnier, demi-chagrin marron époque, dos lisse orné en long très lég. passé, rousseurs habituelles sinon bel exemplaire. 3e édition mais 1ere édition illustrée, et premier tirage des lithographies d'Henri Monnier. L'épicurien Brillat-Savarin voulait faire de l'art culinaire une véritable science. L'intérêt de ce classique réside dans la légèreté avec laquelle les questions culinaires sont présentées à la fois fort savamment et avec une ironie constante qui aère l'ouvrage. L'auteur passe tour à tour du facétieux à la description précise et évocatrice, en passant par l'aphorisme singulier. Le livre connut un succès immédiat, suscita l'enthousiasme de Balzac mais aussi la jalousie de certains comme Carême et le mépris de Baudelaire. ¶ Vicaire gastronomie p.117 - Bitting p.60 - Oberlé Fastes de Bacchus n°149 - Vicaire ill.

        The Hobart Town Almanack for the Year 1830. With Embellishments.

      Hobart Town: James Ross, 1829. 24mo, [viii],, 272 pp., engraved and lettepress titles, with a total of 11 engraved plates (including title page), original cloth. Rare and desirable early Tasmanian almanac here in its second year of issue, featuring eleven plates by the accomplished convict artist Thomas Bock and a descriptive itinerary of travel around Van Diemen's Land. Of particular interest are the final three pages of this volume, comprising regulations for Swan River settlers embarking from Hobart.The regulations are captioned 'For the guidance of those who may propose to embark as settlers, for the new Settlement, on the Western Coast of New Holland' and were issued by the Colonial Office in January 1829. They provide an excellent insight into preliminary arrangements for the colony, especially early land grants. We learn that the government wished to incur no expense for the transport of settlers or their upkeep, although the Lieutenant-Governor will grant land proportionately at a ratio of 40 acres for every £3 invested. The significant exception to this rule being settlers who bring labourers to the Swan River colony (including women and children over ten years of age) are entitled to further land grants. Full title will not be granted until land was cleared and improved, with uncleared ground incurring an annual fiscal penalty and ultimately reverting to the Crown. The second last provision stresses 'It is not intended that any convicts, or other description of prisoners, be transported to this new settlement' - ironic given that convict labour was deemed essential to the economy and transportation continued to West Australia long after its closure in Van Diemen's Land.The eleven plates were engraved by Thomas Bock (the good majority being signed "T. Bock") and are after originals by Frankland, Dalrymple, and Lemprière. Bock is widely recognised as one of the better convict artists of Van Diemen's Land: 'As a result of his work for James Ross, the proprietor of the Hobart Town Alamanck, Bock's skill as an engraver was further recognised. Most of the illustrations for the 1829, 1830, and 1835 almanacks were engraved by him and some also drawn by him. These plates... are competently engraved with finely-incised detail' (Hackforth-Jones The Convict Artists p.20). Some wear of the spine panel, expertly repaired, remnant of original paper label, internally excellent.

        The Wept of Wish Ton-Wish: A tale

      Philadelphia: , 1829. 2 volumes. i-[x]-251 pages; 234+[6 ad] pages. Small octavo (7 1/4" x 4 1/2") bound in full leather with black label to spine in gilt lettering. (BAL: 3844) First American edition. Published in London first in the same year.Cooper was one of the most popular 19th-century American authors, and his work was admired greatly throughout the world. While on his death bed, the Austrian composer Franz Schubert wanted most to read more of Cooper's novels. Honoré de Balzac, the French novelist and playwright, admired him greatly. Henry David Thoreau, while attending Harvard, incorporated some of Cooper's style in his own work. Cooper was one of the first major American novelists to include African, African-American and Native American characters in his works. In particular, Native Americans play central roles in his Leatherstocking tales. However, his treatment of this group is complex and highlights the tenuous relationship between frontier settlers and American Indians as exemplified in , depicting a captured white girl who is taken care of by an Indian chief and who after several years is eventually returned to her parents. Often, he gives contrasting views of Native characters to emphasize their potential for good, or conversely, their proclivity for mayhem. Last of the Mohicans includes both the character of Magua, who is devoid of almost any redeeming qualities, as well as Chingachgook, the last chief of the Mohicans, is portrayed as noble, courageous, and heroic.Condition:Spine head chipped, exterior hinges beginning, old armorial book plates to front pastedowns else a very good set.

        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.

        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, [1829-30].Folio (13 1/2 x 10 1/4 inches; 343 x 260 mm.). Forty-eight hand (of sixty) hand-colored lithograph plates 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. They depict the many manifestations of hypocrisy in French society of the time.We have only been able to locate only complete copy - the Bobins copy (The Exotic and the Beautiful - the World in Color) which apparently has a lithographed title and sixty hand colored plates.OCLC locates just three copies of this very scarce suite of plates - Morgan Library, (NY), USA) Ex. Gordon Ray ; Bibliotheque de Geneve (Switzerland) and Bibliotheque Publique et Univ. Neuchatel (Switzerland). All three of these copies have forty-eight plates (like the present copy), and there is no evidence whatsoever that anything was ever excised from this book. It is possible that the missing numbers (37 through 48 inclusive) were deliberately withdrawn for some reason unknown to us. 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.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.

        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. Cachet annulé de l'institut catholique de Paris. Dos épidermés. Nissen, 1013. Wood, p. 307. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
