        Mémoire sur la Résolution des Équations numériques et sur la Théorie de l'Élimination.

      Paris: de Bure Frères, 1829. First edition, very rare, of Cauchy's important memoir on the determination of the real roots of polynomial equations. As stated in the 'Avertissement', this is a (separately-paginated) offprint from Cauchy's Exercises de Mathématiques, Quatrième Année, 1829 (journal pagination 65-128). The problem of determining the real roots of an equation was a famous one with a long history, having been considered by Descartes (who gave an upper bound for the number of real roots in his famous 'rule of signs'), Newton (who gave an upper bound for the size of any real root), Lagrange and Fourier (who gave upper bounds for the number of roots by considering the sequence of derivatives), and others, but Cauchy was the first to give a complete solution in his paper 'Memoire sur la Détermination du Nombre des Racines réelles dans les Équations algébriques', published in 1815. The method was cumbersome and impractical, however, and Cauchy returned to the problem in 1829, giving a more straightforward procedure. The first step in the new method was to find an interval in the real numbers which contains all the real roots of a given equation: this was 'Cauchy's bound'. The next step was to show how to divide this interval into a finite number of subintervals each of which contains at most one real root of the equation. By examining the changes of sign of the polynomial at the endpoints of these subintervals, it is easy to determine which subintervals do in fact contain real roots. The roots themselves can then be determined approximately with any required degree of accuracy by a repeated bisection procedure. The second step in the method required a detailed study of the symmetric functions of the roots of a given equation, and as a by-product of this study Cauchy gives in the final section of the paper a simple solution of the problem of eliminating a variable between two given equations, one which had also exercised mathematicians since the 17th century. OCLC lists copies in US at Columbia, Harvard and MIT only. No copies in auction records. We have found no records of an offprint of the 1815 paper. Born in Paris in 1789, Cauchy entered the École Polytechnique in 1805, where he studied engineering. Because of his poor health, he was advised by Lagrange and Laplace to devote himself to mathematics. In the first months of 1813, Cauchy was hoping to gain election to the 'First Class' of the Institut. "... a week before the geometry section was to submit its list of candidates, Cauchy presented a new study on the theory of equations to the First Class. Thus he artfully caught the eyes of the members of the Institut. Cauchy expected to give verbally a concise account of the contents of this paper at the First Class' meeting of May 17. But other readings filled up the meeting. In this account, which he published a few days later, Cauchy intended to pay his respects to Lagrange, 'the great geometer whose passing has saddened learned circles everywhere in Europe as much as it has saddened us', and he presented his own work as a response to a problem that Lagrange had posed in his Traite de la Resolution des Equations Numeriques de tous les Degres. "Lagrange had published that work in 1798, and in it he examined Descartes' rule on the number of positive roots of an algebraic equation. This rule had been proved by De Gua in 1748, and Lagrange's work proceeded to pose - but not solve - the more general problem of the a priori determination of the number of real roots, whether negative or positive, of an equation. While there may no doubt be that Lagrange's research was the source of Cauchy's inquiries on the subject, as Cauchy himself declared in his account, it is at best only indirectly so, for it was Poisson who had suggested this research problem to Cauchy. Moreover, nowhere else in the memoir Cauchy published on the subject two years later [the offered extract] is Lagrange mentioned. The homage Cauchy paid to Lagrange thus appears to have been rendered with an eye on the coming election to the seat that Lagrange had left vacant" (Belhoste, Augustin-Louis Cauchy: A Biography, p. 37). Cauchy was unsuccessful in the election. "He was no doubt deeply hurt by these sharp checks on his ambitions, and being only partially recovered from his illnesses, he requested a six-months' leave of absence without pay to regain his health. This sick leave was granted on June 5, 1813. However, he had to wait until mid-July to be replaced by the engineer Denoël before enjoying his leave. "Cauchy took advantage of this new sick leave to resume his research on the problem of the a priori determination of the nature and number of roots of an algebraic equation. The method he had propounded in May 1813 had, in effect, turned out to be difficult and applicable only to equations with simple roots. Thus, on October 18, 1813, he submitted a new paper to the First Class of the Institut, stating: 'Two months ago, I had the honor of submitting to the Class a method by which I could determine a priori the real roots of a given equation. The Class decided to honor it with their approval. However, although that method is capable of yielding a solution to the problem when applied to equations of any given degree, one must take account of the number of equal roots and of the multitude of special situations that are prejudicial to the results obtained. The method I propose today does not have these drawbacks. It allows us to determine the number or roots, positive and negative, in a general way and that is independent of any considerations of equal roots and of other special cases that might arise.' "Cauchy first developed his ideas in geometric terms with no 'mathematical formulation', and then proceeded to develop an 'application to analysis of the preceding discussion' ... Cauchy wrote several supplementary notes, probably during the following months; and, at last, on November 22, 1813, he submitted a new study on this subject to the First Class of the Institut. "Cauchy had now spent many months working on this problem, and although Poisson's report was favorable, the undertaking was only partially successful. To be sure, he had shown for the first time that it is always possible -- at least in theory -- to determine a priori the nature and number of roots of an algebraic equation. In practice, however, this method led to long, complicated calculations and was accordingly almost unusable" (ibid., pp. 38-9). Cauchy's long 'Memoire sur la Détermination du Nombre des Racines réelles dans les Équations algébriques' contains, as stated at the beginning of the memoir, the substance of the various studies on the real roots of equations Cauchy had submitted to the Institut during 1813. Cauchy returned to the problem of determining the real roots in the 1829 memoir. He began by establishing what has become known as 'Cauchy's bound.' Suppose we have polynomial p(x) = xm + am-1xm-1 + .... + a1x + a0, where the coefficients a0, a1, ...., am-1 are real numbers. Let M be the greatest of the positive numbers in the list ±a0, ±a1, ...., ±am-1, and let A = M + 1. Then Cauchy proves (p. 29) that all the real roots of the equation p(x) = 0 lie in the interval of real numbers between -A and A. The next step is to find a small positive number Δ such that each of the subintervals -A to -A + Δ, -A + Δ to -A + 2Δ, ...., A - Δ to A, contains at most one real root (pp. 58-59). This is the most difficult part of the proof and is based on a detailed analysis of the 'symmetric' functions of the roots, i.e. functions of the roots that are unchanged when the roots are permuted in any way. It was well known that any such function of the roots could be expressed as a function of the coefficients of the polynomial. Once this is known it is easy to find which of the subintervals actually contain a root: if the polynomial p has a different sign at the two endpoints of a given subinterval, then that subinterval contains a root; otherwise it does not. This is essentially the 'intermediate value theorem' for continuous functions which, rather curiously, Cauchy seems to regard as being self-evident in the present work, although much of his Cours d'Analyse (1821) was devoted to developing a rigorous proof. Once a root has been localized within a subinterval, Cauchy shows, by a method that was then well known, how to determine it to any desired degree of accuracy. The subinterval is divided into two equal parts at the mid-point and one examines the sign of the polynomial p at that point. This tells one which of the two new subintervals contains the root. Iterating this procedure enables one to localise the root to any degree of accuracy. The final section 8 discusses the application to elimination theory. The problem is to find the condition on the coefficients in order for that polynomials xm + am-1xm-1 + .... + a1x + a0 and xn + bn-1xn-1 + .... + b1x + b0 have a root in common (this is the result of ‘eliminating' x between the two equations). Cauchy introduces the quantity U which is the product of the mn differences between each root of the first polynomial and each root of the second. This is a symmetric function of the roots of each polynomial, and can therefore be expressed in terms of the coefficients of the two polynomials. Cauchy indicates how this is done, thus giving an explicit solution to the elimination problem. As stated in the 'Avertissement' on p. [iii], this work is an offprint from Cauchy's Exercises de Mathématiques. Early in his career as a mathematician, Cauchy found that the volume of his research output could not be accommodated in the Memoirs of the Academy (for example, his great work on complex function theory was written in 1814 but not published in the Institute's Memoirs until 1827). He therefore started to publish his work in what was essentially his own mathematical periodical, the Exercices de Mathématiques, which appeared yearly starting in 1826. This continued until 1830, when Cauchy exiled himself to Turin following the July Revolution of 1830, which replaced Charles X with the Orléans King Louis-Philippe, to whom Cauchy refused to swear allegiance.

      Paris, J.-G. Dentu, 1829, demi-basane de l'époque, dos ornés. -Rousseurs éparses. - 3 volumes in-8 de (4)-CVII-(1)-398 pp. ; (4)-662 pp. + 1 f. d'errata et (4)-621-(3) pp. (ouvrages parus chez Dentu) ; Edition originale.En 1829, l'auteur, romancier et non pas historien, auteur de nombreux mémoires apocryphes, publiait cet ouvrage en prétendant s'appuyer sur des documents inédits tirés des Archives du diocèse de Toulouse. Il décrivait les procès conduits par les tribunaux inquisitoriaux et donnait le nom des victimes, les dates et les lieux : cet ouvrage fut à l'origine de la légende noire de l'Inquisition durant tout le XIXe siècle, et devint une œuvre de propagande dans les milieux anti-cléricaux. Dans les années 1970, deux historiens britanniques, N. Cohn et R. Kieckhefer, partirent à la recherche des sources de Lamothe-Langon et découvrirent qu'elles n'avaient jamais existé.

        Ba la Bola Señores [Colombian post-revolutionary caricature].

      1829 - Early caricature of Colombia´s post-colonial life-style; by a famous Colombian artist of the 19th century. N.d. [before 1829]. Santa Fe de Bogota. 257 mm x 153 mm. Watercolor on paper. Espinosa Prieto (1796 - 1883) was a Colombian artist, engraver and caricaturist; his careful observation of the daily life during his youth, artistic skill, keen sense of humour and irony, facilitated his renderings of the social and political reality of Colombia during the years of the Independence and formation of the new republic. His reputation swiftly grew, mainly for his caricatures portraying the most relevant and influent men of the republican elite, as well as the local costumes and way of life of the inhabitants of Bogota. Amongst his most famous portraits are those of Simon Bolivar (1828, which gained him recognition from Bolivar himself), Archbishop Mosquera, and Francisco de Santander. South American artists saw most of their production go into portraits, for the simple reason that it was the most sought-after sort of painting –and immediately paid by the people commissioning them-, this caricature, representing a curious aspect of the Bogota way of life is extremely rare. The Biblioteca Nacional de Colombia holds a considerable number of portraits, caricatures and miscellaneous works by him, none –to our knowledge- like this one. The drawing represents a game being played at a tavern or brothel; it is accomplished in striking colours, and shows men of civil stature, an army officer, and women. Provenance: ”Ce dessin m’a eté donne à Bogota, par M le Duc de Montebello, le 13 aout 1829”; the Duke of Montebello was Louis Napoleon Lannes (1801 – 1874), sent to Bogota in 1829 by King Charles X of France on a diplomatic mission attempting to convert the Liberator Simon Bolivar into King Simon I, through marriage to a French Princess.

        Scelta di lettere edificanti scritte dalle Missioni straniere preceduta da quadri geographici storici, politici, religiosi e letterari dei paesi di missione..

      Milan: Ranieri Fanfani, 1829. Occasional foxing, some wear and a little loss affecting the wrappers.. Eighteen small quarto volumes, with a total of 101 handcoloured plates and seven maps; an excellent set as issued in the publisher's tinted wrappers. Scarce in original condition: a record of Catholic missionary activity across the globe from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, forming a curious and at sometimes intimate ethnological portrayal of native peoples encountered. Taking the form of collected letters and despatches (with numerous maps and over 100 plates in total), this set is noteworthy for its visual depiction of the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Four volumes specifically concern the cultures of North and South America: the first is entirely devoted to Canada, while the remaining three contain discrete sections on Louisiana, California, San Domingo, Guiana, Peru, Chile and Paraguay. In addition to the missionary correspondence, each section includes description of the culture, history and geography of each region. In total the four American volumes contain 22 plates and two folding maps.Likewise, China is generously examined over the first five volumes, and many fascinating Jesuit despatches from the Imperial Court are here offered to the public gaze. Throughout the late-seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Jesuit scholars enjoyed favour with the Emperor and his Court, and were especially admired for their prowess in astronomy and mathematics. The five volumes concerning China contain a total of 29 plates and a detailed map.Remaining regions revealed include 'the Levant' - here used in an expanded sense to encompass the vast geography of North Africa, the Middle East and Persia. One discrete volume concerns the kingdoms of Southeast Asia including Tonkin and Siam, while the final four volumes are devoted to the Catholic Missions of India.

        Allgemeiner Hand-Atlas der ganzen Erde nach den besten astronomischen Bestimmungen, neuesten Entdeckungen und kritischen Untersuchungen entworfen.

      Weimar, Verlag des geographischen Instituts, 1829. - Royal folio (78 x 54 cm). Lithogr. title, table of contents, and 60 engraved maps in border colour. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards with giltstamped spine. Rare atlas, with maps dated between 1822 and 1829, mostly drawn by C. F. Weiland (though some - Galicia, Tyrol, Hungary - are designed and engraved by F. W. Streit). Includes two hemisphere maps of the world and 39 maps of Europe, 6 of Asia (with the Arabian Peninsula shown in the general map and the Arabian Gulf in the map of Iran and Afghanistan), 7 of Africa, 5 of America, and 1 of Australia. - The "Landes-Industrie-Comptoir", founded by F. J. Bertuch in 1791 and in 1804 founder of the subsidiary "Geographisches Institut", had in 1797 first issued A. C. Gaspari's slightly misleadingly named, large-format "Allgemeiner Hand-Atlas der ganzen Erde" ("General hand atlas of the entire earth"), whose 60 maps had been produced by the efforts of no fewer than 11 cartographers (including Streit and Adolf Stieler). Gaspari's atlas was the first to offer continuous improvements in successive editions, which soon led to a standardization of the maps. Until the 1840s most of the work was done by Weiland. Under frequently revised titles the atlas saw no fewer than 49 editions by 1880. - Slightly wrinkled and stained (mainly in the margins); some edge tears to title page and table of contents (some repaired). Binding rubbed and bumped at extremeties. Espenhorst p. 24. Cf. Le Gear 6107 (1848 ed.). Al-Qasimi (2nd ed.) p. 281 (Weiland's 1839 map of Arabia). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Carte Itinéraire et Politique d'Europe d'après les derniers traités de paix, Avec les plans des principales villes d'Europe

      1829 - Date: 1829 (Published) Paris Dimensions: 29.5 x 42.25 inches (75 cm x 107.3 cm) This amazing map of Europe was done during and shortly after the major European reshufflings of borders which took place in the first quarter of the 19th century. The engaging map stretches the entire width and breadth of Europe, from the British Isles to the Ural Mountains of Russia, and from the Arctic Circle as far south as northern Africa and northern Arabia. Maire’s map is highly detailed including major cities and smaller towns and villages, mountain ranges, lakes, rivers, seas and the northeastern edge of the Atlantic. Around the map central Maire has included highly detailed urban maps of thirteen of Europe’s major cities, including Paris, London, Vienna, St. Petersburg, Constantinople, Rome, Naples, Madrid, Lisbon, Berlin, Warsaw, Copenhagen and Stockholm. These maps include the centers and outlying districts of each city, and the major rivers, ports or other bodies of water on or beside which each city was founded. Each city map is accompanied by text in French providing details of the salient features of the cities. Important edifices are named and population figures are even provided. Iceland is included in the center of the Baroque title cartouche which embellishes the map. This grand map is encyclopedic in the information it provides, and is in fact fourteen maps in one. It would be a splendid centerpiece for any room. Little is known about engineer/geographer Nicolas Maire, but his maps testify to the important contacts he had in the government of Paris at the time he was working. In 1808 he published a small city atlas of Paris containing twenty pages and 104 pages of alphabetical listings of streets and the addresses of public offices, hotels, hospitals and other establishments of interest. Condition: This hand colored map is in A condition, a strong impression on heavy paper. Inventory #10906

        Scelta di lettere edificanti scritte dalle Missioni straniere preceduta da quadri geographici storici, politici, religiosi e letterari dei paesi di missione...

      Milan: Ranieri Fanfani, 1825-1829. Eighteen small quarto volumes, with a total of 101 handcoloured plates and seven maps; an excellent set as issued in the publisher's tinted wrappers. Scarce in original condition: a record of Catholic missionary activity across the globe from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, forming a curious and at sometimes intimate ethnological portrayal of native peoples encountered. Taking the form of collected letters and despatches (with numerous maps and over 100 plates in total), this set is noteworthy for its visual depiction of the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Four volumes specifically concern the cultures of North and South America: the first is entirely devoted to Canada, while the remaining three contain discrete sections on Louisiana, California, San Domingo, Guiana, Peru, Chile and Paraguay. In addition to the missionary correspondence, each section includes description of the culture, history and geography of each region. In total the four American volumes contain 22 plates and two folding maps.Likewise, China is generously examined over the first five volumes, and many fascinating Jesuit despatches from the Imperial Court are here offered to the public gaze. Throughout the late-seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Jesuit scholars enjoyed favour with the Emperor and his Court, and were especially admired for their prowess in astronomy and mathematics. The five volumes concerning China contain a total of 29 plates and a detailed map.Remaining regions revealed include 'the Levant' - here used in an expanded sense to encompass the vast geography of North Africa, the Middle East and Persia. One discrete volume concerns the kingdoms of Southeast Asia including Tonkin and Siam, while the final four volumes are devoted to the Catholic Missions of India. Occasional foxing, some wear and a little loss affecting the wrappers.

        Pêche Francaise de la Baleine dans le Mers du Sud, en 1829

      1829 - Offprint from Le Navigateur, journal des naufrages et de autres evenements nautiques. September 1829. Frontispiece & a folding lithograph plate. 8vo. Fine in quarter calf over old marbled boards, spine gilt. [ii], 56pp, Havre, Hue, A crisp, clean copy of this rare offprint. The work includes the two relevant plates from the original publication of Le Navigateur, a journal which is only held at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. The frontispiece illustrates the Cachelot and Baleine Franche whales. The folding plate, Peche de la Baleine, is by Brochy after Precourt and depicts a whaling scene. The timing of this publication is interesting. In December 1829, the French government sought to encourage whaling by awarding each ship bound for the northern seas 90 francs per man and those that travelled further afield 180 francs per man, regardless of their catch. It's only too likely that this offprint was issued as a result of this ordnance. Much of the information in this article is drawn from the accounts of M. Venard and M. Descarrieres captains of the Franco-American whalers George and Albert and the l'Entreprise. The work includes a description of different types of whales, discusses migration routes (referencing the North-West Passage) and natural enemies (the killer whale and sharks), harpooning techniques, mooring dead whales, and the importance of having a surgeon on board. The author is clearly concerned about safety onboard and much of material relates to this. However, of real interest is the account of tensions onboard the ships between the French and American sailors - the French were upset by what they perceived as breaches of protocol by American sailors and their lack of formal training. The Americans in turn aggrieved by the unsympathetic attitude of the French and this quickly led to a violent confrontation. The matters were brought to a naval tribunal on the return to France which saw the vindication of the American complaints. This did not, however, prevent a second voyage departing almost immediately. Almost certainly, these whalers were a part of the fleet first established by William Roch, Sr at Dunkirk. His South Sea Fishery routinely sent whalers into the Southern Atlantic and, by the time of publication, the South Pacific. This work also discusses the effect of the Revolutionary War on whaling. Information on the Franco-American whaling fleet is rare. We have only been able to locate two copies at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France and the University of Glasgow. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        An autograph letter signed to 'My dear King' (the Reverend Arthur Septimus King, son of Captain Phillip Parker King); two pages, small octavo, dated 9 July 1846, regarding assistance with finding him a curacy

      'I can ... write to the Bishop of Norwich, who has a great respect for your Father, to ask his advice about it, and I am sure he will do all he can for you, consistently with his rules of duty.' Rear-Admiral Sir William Edward Parry, Arctic explorer, spent the years 1829-34 in Australia as Commissioner of the Australian Agricultural Company, the role Captain King took over 'for ten eventful years' from 8 April 1834 (Dictionary of National Biography, and the Australian Dictionary of Biography). This serves to establish a connection between the parties (as if the hydrographical one wasn't enough). As for the rest, the 'career of Parry as an arctic explorer is to be best studied in his own Journals; his Life, written by his son Edward in 1857, which ran through many editions, dwells, with a natural bias, on the religious side of his character, which was strongly marked' (DNB). Accordingly, we won't go on about the glories of the polar days, but rest content in the knowledge that this item reflects a part of the whole ...

      1829. Fine. RARE FIRST HAND ACCOUNT OF THE BATTLE OF NAVARINO: THE LAST MAJOR CONFLICT INVOLVING SAILING SHIPS [ANONYMOUS -- probably Charles M'Pherson]. LIFE ON BOARD A MAN-OF-WAR; INCLUDING A FULL ACCOUNT OF THE BATTLE OF NAVARINO. BY A BRITISH SEAMAN. Glasgow: Blackie, Fullarton, & Co.; Arch. Fullarton & Co. Edinburgh; W. F. Wakeman, Dublin; and James Duncan, London. M. DCCC. XXIX. [1829]. First edition. viii, 193, [1] pp. 12mo., in a 20th century binding of three-quarter dark green calf, lighter green cloth sides, with delicate, gilt-stamped floral rolls, gilt lettering between decorative double-rules on spine, with the initials "P. & J. H." stamped at the base. Modern nautical themed bookplate on first fly-leaf. Early ink ownership at head of title-page. Fine. This is a first-hand account of the Battle of Navarino, the last major action involving sailing ships. It was written by a British seaman who served aboard the 76-gun battleship `The Genoa.' Navarino is a small port on the west coast of the Pelaponnese, now called Pylos. The battle, fought on 20 October 1827, was an affair between the great powers of the day: a small, combined force of the British, French and Russian navies against a larger fleet comprised of Ottoman and Egyptian vessels. The European forces were there to enforce the 1827 Treaty of London by establishing peace between Greek patriots and their Ottoman rulers. While the Greeks nationalists agreed to an armistice, the Turks did not and continued their ruthless campaign against the local Greek population. Having been given the vague and contradictory instruction to engage in a "friendly demonstration of force," the British and French squadrons sailed into the small bay merely to intimidate the Ottoman and Egyptian fleet anchored there. It has never been determined exactly which side shot first, but a battled ensued. The ships jostled for position within the cramped bay as they fired point-blank upon one another, inflicting as much damage as possible. Both sides fought valiantly. Although the Ottoman and Egyptian fleet would have been favored on paper, it was clear after the Russian squadron joined the fray, and after three hours of battle, that the Ottoman fleet was virtually destroyed and, amazingly, not a single European ship was lost. The battle was a turning point for the Ottoman Empire and the start of i

        The Poetical Works of Coleridge, Shelley, and Keats. Complete in One Volume

      A. and W. Galignani, Paris 1829 - xi, 225, vii, 75 p. 24 cm. Title page vignette. Half leather with orange marbled paper boards. Text printed in double column. Respined with original spine reattached. Hinges repaired internally. New front free endpaper. Bookplate and ink inscription on front pastedown. Ink stamp on bookplate and title page. Foxing. Inscription at bottom of p. 38 in first part and ink mark on p. 3 of same section. This volume constitutes the first collected edition of Keats and the second collected works of Coleridge and Shelley. The Parisian publisher, Galignani, was famous for its pirated editions (Sir Walter Scott referred to the shop as the "old pirate's den") but the firm did have the cooperation of family members and literary friends of all three poets when assembling this volume. For example, each poet's work is preceded by a short life of the author, the memoir of Keats being produced by Leigh Hunt. Hunt also sent along some unpublished Keats poems in his possession to be included. Keats' literary executor, Charles Armitage Brown, disliked Hunt's portrayal of his friend, but Brown's own biography of Keats was not ready in time for this edition and was not published until 1937. The memoir of Shelley was written by his wife Mary Shelley who also helped the publication of this edition by allowing the publisher access to Shelley's papers.

        Essays on the Pursuit of Truth, on the Progress of Knowledge, and on the Fundamental Principle of all Evidence and Expectation.

      London: Printed for R. Hunter, 1829 - Octavo (204 x 135 mm). Original blue paper boards, paper label to spine printed in black, edges uncut. Extremities worn and bumped, spine creased, label a little chipped, hinges gently cracked but firm, occasional light foxing to contents, overall a very good copy. First edition of the economist and philosopher's treatise on truth and knowledge, an extension of several subjects touched upon in Bailey's earlier Essays on the Formation and Publication of Opinions (1821). Bailey (c.1791–1870) was a Sheffield merchant who became the first chairman of the Sheffield Banking Company in 1831. He wrote widely in both economics and philosophy, and in reference to Bailey's major economic work, A Critical Dissertation on the Nature, Measure and Causes of Value (1825), Schumpeter judged it as "among the masterpieces of criticism in our field, and it should suffice to secure to its author a place in or near front rank in the history of scientific economics" (Schumpeter, p. 486).
