        General View of Niagara Falls

      Original watercolour and bodycolour, within a thick black line border, with and integral outer 'frame' of grey wash, the title inscribed in white on this gray wash 'frame'. Gilt frame. 5 x 7 11/16 inches. 6 1/4 x 8 3/4 inches. A beautifully observed and typically detailed work from Nicolino Calyo in the classical Italian 'veduta' or 'view' tradition. Nicolino Calyo's work is well-represented in American museums and institutions, with examples at the White House, the Baltimore Museum of Art, the New York Historical Society, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, Belmont Mansion in Nashville, the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, the Maryland Historical Society in Baltimore, the Washington County Museum of Fine Arts in Maryland and the Museum of the City of New York. Calyo was born in Naples, Italy, where he studied art at the Royal Academy. After some time travelling in Europe (he apparently lived briefly in both Malta and Spain) he emigrated to the United States in about 1830, setting up a studio initially in Baltimore. He left for Philadelphia and the north in about June 1835, arriving in New York in time to record the disastrous Great Fire of 16 and 17 December 1835 (two of the resulting pictures were later reproduced in aquatint by by William James Bennett [1789-1844]). Calyo subsequently made New York his home and the city directories from 1838 to 1855 all list him as either a 'portrait and landscape painter' or a 'professor of painting.' By the late 1840s his Italian-born son John A. Calyo (1818-1893) had joined him and they advertised as 'N. Calyo & Son,' historical painters and teachers. The original reason for his leaving Italy had been political, and given this background it is not surprising to find that his New York home became a gathering place for other European exiles (including the future Napoleon III [1808-1873]). Calyo apparently made one significant return visit to Europe, when he travelled to Spain (where he worked as Court painter to Queen Maria Cristina [1806-1878]), but he returned to New York in 1874 and remained there for the rest of his life.Calyo is best known for the watercolour and gouache views of American cities and landmarks (such as the present work) but he also painted scenes taken from the Mexican War of 1846-1848 and an enormous forty-foot panorama of the Connecticut River. He exhibited paintings at American Society of Painters in Watercolor in New York between 1867 and 1869. The style he employs is quite distinctive among American artists, and as Kathleen Foster notes, his Italian training 'dominates his method . . . conditioning his liberal use of gouache, which imparts an opaque, slightly chalky surface to his work, setting it apart from the English style of transparent watercolor more familiar to American artists of that period.'

        Monumenta runica, æri insculpta.)

      4:o. 119 grav. plr i avdrag från omkring 1830 av plåtar graverade omkring 1650. Lätt nött glättat mörkblått pappbd från omkring 1830. Blåstänkta snitt. Någon enstaka småfläck. Med Carl Jedvard Bondes formklippta exlibris. Fint ex. från Ericsberg.. Jfr Collijn Sveriges bibliografi 1600-talet 124-25 och Warmholtz Bibliotheca historica Sueo-Gothica 1623, noten. På ett löst bilagt blad med anteckningar från omkring 1830 återfinns verkets titel och en förteckning över de plåtar från vilka avdragen i föreliggande exemplar härrör. De som återfinns här är den så kallade lilla runtavlan och 118 runstensavbildningar. Klemming har skrivit om Bureus samling av runristningar i "Ur en antecknares samlingar": "Mot slutet af Bures lefnad blef det bestämdt att de af honom samlade runristningarne skulle stickas i koppar. I Kammar-kollegii protokoll för 10 april 1647 finnes härom denna anteckning: 'Kopparstickaren Sigismundus Vogel blef kalladt och med honom handlat, att vthsticka vthi koppar 200 st. runiska saker. Derföre lofwades honom tilhopa 180 rdr.' [...] Denna samling, som är i octav, har ingen titel, intet tryckår, inga rubriker, ingen paginering[...]. Huru många plåtar blefvo färdiga kan nu ej med visshet bestämmas; de äro sedan gammalt numererade, dock med luckor, ända t.o.m. 220, men flera än 203 olika stenar hafva icke funnits i de fem mer eller mindre fullständiga exemplar, som sedan gammalt varit kända". Klemming fortsätter: "I några nya aftryck af de merändels skadade plåtarna finnas 163 stycken; dessa aftryck besörjdes af Liljegren på 1830-talet." Föreliggande samling är ett av dessa. De innehåller varierande antal planscher, Per Hierta hade t.ex. 117 stycken i sin samling och Gustaf Bernström 163. Fiske saknade den helt i sitt omfattande runbibliotek

        Mémoire sur la Dispersion de la Lumière. [As published in Nouveaux Exercices de Mathématiques].Prague: J.G. Calve, 1835-36.. First edition.

      The memoire in which Cauchy explained the dispersion of light from the undulatory theory of light, and first derived the equation, named after him, relating the refractive index and wavelength of light for a particular transparent material. This memoire was a continuation of his earlier work, of the same title published in Paris in 1830, and was issued as eight parts of his periodical 'Nouveaux Exercices de Mathématiques' (see below). <br/><br/> "The dispersion of light when passing through matter without getting fully absorbed, i.e., the variation of the refractive index <i>n</i> (which denotes the ratio of the velocity of light in vacuo to the velocity of light in matter) with the wavelength, always played an important role in the history of optics since the times of Isaac Newton. After the undulatory theory of light won over the corpuscular view in the beginning of the nineteenth century, Augustin Louis Cauchy proposed an explanation of the dispersion phenomenon, based on the assumption that matter consisted of molecules having finite distances from each other (Cauchy 1836). According to his theory the refractive index <i>n</i> increased with decreasing wavelength &lambda; of the light - <i>n</i> was approximately proportional to &lambda;<sup>-2</sup> - in general agreement with the data on what was later called 'normal' dispersion." (Mehra & Rechenberg: The Historical Development of Quantum Theory, Vol. 1, Part 2, p. 630). <br/><br/> "The first livraisons appeared successively during the year 1835, at Prague. The first is a repetition of the 'Memoire sur la dispersion' [Paris, 1830]. In the second, (besides other discussions) is contained the actual deduction of the formula for dispersion. In September, 1835, [Cauchy] circulated a lithographed memoire on interpolation, (a translation of which appears in the Journal of Science, Vol. VIII. p. 459) in which he gives a calculation by that method, of Fraunhofer's indices for one kind of flint glass, but without any theoretical explanation. In the 'Nouveaux Exercices' for 1836, he gives in detail his most elaborate and exact method of computation, and applies it with perfect success to all the indices determined by Fraunhofer" (Baden Powell: A General and Elementary View of the Undulatory Theory, as Applied to the Dispersion of Light, London, Parker, 1851, pp. XLVI-XLVII). <br/><br/> "In 1826 Cauchy began to publish his 'Exercises de Mathematiques', which was essentially a mathematical periodical consisting entirely of papers written by himself; it appeared at approximately monthly intervals until 1830. He used similar series as vehicles for his publications at later stages of his career; the 'Nouveaux Exercices de Mathématiques' were published in Prague in 1835-36 and the 'Exercices d'Analyse et de Physique Mathématique' appeared at intervals from 1840 to 1853." (Smithies: Cauchy and the Creation of Complex Function Theory, p.113).. 4to: 259 x 202 mm. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, marbled end papers, engraved bookplate to front paste down, hinges worn but still strong, head and tale of spine professionally repaired, in all a very nice copy.

        A Treatise on the Calculus of Operations: Designed to Facilitate the Processes of the Differential and Integral Calculus and the Calculus of Finite Differences.With presentation to Sir John F.W. Herschel. London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1855. First edition.

      A fine copy of the first text devoted exclusively to the calculus of operations with presentation to one of the fields main contributors - handwritten presentation on the title page: "Sir John Herschel / with the author's complements", and rubberstamp of the Herschel Library Collingwood. Operational calculus, in which the processes of derivation and integration are represented as algebraic operators, was initially developed in France. But, after having been imported by Babbage and Herschel to Cambridge in the beginning of the nineteenth century, the field became a focal point for mathematical research in Great Britain. Numerous papers were published on the subject by Herschel, Gregory, Peacock, Graves, and De Morgan during the 1830'a and 40's. And in 1844 George Boole published his famous paper on the subject - 'On a general method of analysis' which won the Mathematical Medal of the Royal Society. The first systematic extension of Boole's method to this subject was supplied in a paper of 1851 by Robert Carmichael, who was a fellow at Trinity College, Dublin. And in 1855 Carmichael published his 'Treatise on the Calculus of Operations' - the first text devoted exclusively to the calculus of operations.

        Die Juden wie sie waren, wie sie sind und wie sie seyn werden. Eine vollständige Charakteristik derselben.

      3 Bände. Mit gest. Frontispiz von Jos. Hutter. 8 Bll., XVI, 328; 444; 367 S. Marmorierter Pappbde d. Zt. Erste Ausgabe. Goedeke X, 10, 20. - Veränderte Auflage des 1822/23 in Aarau publizierten Machwerkes "Die Judenschule, oder gründliche Anleitung, in kurzer Zeit ein vollkommener schwarzer oder weißer Jude zu werden", ebenfalls mit einer zynischen Widmung an Baron Rothschild versehen. Hundt geht als einer der ersten Antisemiten weg von der christlichen Begründung des Jesus-Mordes hin zu einem rassisch motivierten Judenhass; er geht sogar so weit, dass er insgesamt ihm missliebige Bevölkerungsgruppen zu sog. "weißen Juden" (im Gegensatz zu "schwarzen Juden") erklärt; u. a. werden Engländer zu Juden erklärt, da sie direkt von Abraham und dessen zweiter Frau Ketura abstammen sollen. Die "kleineren weißen" Juden hingegen seien unmittelbare Abkömmlinge Abrahams und dessen Mätressen. - Der auf dem Allodialgut Schlieven bei Parchim geborene Johann Hartwig Hundt (1780-1835) legte sich aus unbekannten Gründen den Namen "Radowksy" zu, gelegentlich auch ergänzt durch einen zu Unrecht getragenen Adelstitel. Sein geifernder Hass gegen Juden trieb ihn durch ganz Deutschland und mehrfach in die Schweiz ins Exil, wo er auch als mittelloser Alkoholiker verstarb. - Berieben und bestoßen, bei Band 3 Papierbezug am oberen Viertel des Rückens abgeschabt.

        A Plan for the Amelioration of the Condition of the Poor of the United Kingdom (more particularly Ireland); and for their Permanent Establishment, by Means at Once Simple and Economical;

      [title continues:] "from the Adoption of which an Immense Expenditure would be Saved to the Country, and the Original Outlay Returned, with Four per Cent. per Annum Interest, in the Short Period of Four Years from the Time the Plan was called into Operation." First Edition, First Issue [probably a pre-publication author's trial issue], iv, 186pp + 27 various additional inserted pages (erratically paginated) making a total of 217pp., with 5 plates (with one lithographic [by author] as frontispiece, the others engraved), INSCRIBED PRESENTATION COPY from the Author with full signature to Lord Cloncurry, in a FINE FULL MOROCCO PRESENTATION BINDING, elaborately gilt, complete with half title, a superb copy on SPECIAL HEAVY PAPER, London, Printed by Mills, Jowett, and Mills, ["Published by Eff[ingha]m Wilson, Royal Exchange" - this added in author's hand at foot of title], 1830. * See Goldsmiths 26406. Ferguson no. 1375. * The inserted leaves and added manuscript publisher's name indicate that this was a probably pre-publication author's issue. * In his plan "of giving immediate employment to the industrious poor," Light puts forward an elaborate and calculated plan for the employment of the poor in the reclamation of waste lands. This he recommends as likely to be more effective and efficient than emigration as a solution to the problem of poverty, particularly in Ireland. * Alexander Whalley Light (fl.1811-1853), military officer, joined the 25th (The King's Own Borderers) Regiment of Foot on 1 August 1804 and was commissioned as Colonel on 27 May 1825. Prior to that, he received commission as Lieutenant Colonel on 4 June 1811. He retired from active service c.1830 after which he took up residence near Woodstock, Upper Canada, in the initial settlement of that area through an official settlement scheme whereby chosen immigrants were encouraged to settle in chosen areas in Canada to ensure the community's loyalty to the British crown. For this, British naval and army officers at the conclusion of military service were particularly chosen. To facilitate the settling of these men a system of credits, graduated according to rank and length of service, was set up to enable military men to purchase lands from the Crown at low cost. In this way Alexander Whalley Light was the very first to arrive in Oxford County in 1831 and was a very signficant Canadian pioneer (see QUORA website). * PROVENANCE: The recipient of this copy was Lord Cloncurry (1773-1853), Valentine Brown Lawless, 2nd Baron Cloncurry, Irish politician and landowner. He lived at the sumptuous mansion Lyons Demesne and the present book came from that library. Lyons Demesne, Lyons Hill, Ardclough, County Kildare, long considered a "Georgian treasure", was completed between 1785 and 1797. Later, Valentine Lawless, 2nd Baron Cloncurry, spent £200,000 on renovation that included frescoes by Gaspare Gabrielli and three ship-loads of classical art imported from Italy. A fourth shipment was lost when it sank off Wicklow. Treasures which were successfully imported include three columns from the ruins of the Golden House of Nero in Rome, used in the portico, and a statue of Venus excavated at Ostia. Country Life, which gives Lyons the highest status as Ireland's most significant estate, says of it, "There are seven suites in the main house, a self contained guest wing with four bedrooms and staff quarters in the north wing." This famous house, which still stands, is decorated in the Directoire style, of which there are few examples in Ireland.
