In all a very good copy.. Coriolis' highly important memoir on acceleration in composite motions. Coriolis expressed the principle of "force vive" (kinetic energy) as the transmission of work. Wishing to evalutate the work done by fluids in hydraulic machines and steam engines, he found simple expressions that apply to the fixed framework of the machine with respect to which the moving parts are in motion. "To the extent that consideration of relative motion in machines was unavoidable either to eliminate or to simplify the work of linking forces, theory has necessarily to deal with the question of inertial forces when the system of reference is changed" (DSB)

        Experimental Researches in Electricity; First Edition, complete set of 30 series parts (plus Supplement to Eleventh series and Continuation of Twenty-second series),

      with 14 plates exactly complete and located as textually called for, with numerous textual illustrations, PHOTOGRAPHS ON REQUEST. First Editions, extracted from The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1832-1856, superbly bound in a large thick quarto, three-quarter green morocco, with raised bands gilt, by Trevor Lloyd, with the general title-page for the first part (1832) retained, most plates with very small and neat embossed uninked library name (this virtually invisible), one plate with small repairs in upper blank margin, an excellent attractive set beautifully preserved and bound, London, The Royal Society, 1832-1856. * See Printing and the Mind of Man, 308 and Horblit 29 (both citing the later collected book-form edition).*An extremely rare complete set of Faraday's epochal papers on electricity, as they originally appeared in the Philosophical Transactions over 24 years. Between 1832 and 1856, Faraday published in the Philosophical Transactions a series of 30 papers entitled "Experimental Researches in Electricity," in which his major discoveries relating to electricity and magnetism were first announced to the world. The first 29 of these papers were collected and published in three volumes between 1839 and 1855; the 30th paper, published in 1856, never appeared in book form. The "First series" of the "Experimental researches," published in 1832, is Faraday's single most important scientific paper: it reports his discovery of the means for generating electricity by electro-magnetic induction and his invention of the dynamo. Regarding Faraday's invention of the dynamo, his biographer L. Pearce Williams has this to say: ". . . it was impossible to realize at the time the revolution in man's life that would be worked by future developments of this apparatus. . . . From this simple laboratory toy was to come the whole of the electric power industry and the benefits to everyone that have followed upon the ability to transport electricity to even the smallest village or farm. Faraday did realize that here was a possible source of cheap electric current, but he was too immersed in discovery to think of pursuing the practical aspects. . . . The story is told that Sir Robert Peel, the Prime Minister, visited Faraday in the laboratory of the Royal Institution soon after the invention of the dynamo. Pointing to this odd machine, he inquired of what use it was. Faraday is said to have replied, "I know not, but I wager that one day your government will tax it" (Williams, Michael Faraday, pp. 195-96). The "Second series" of the "Experimental Researches," which deals with terrestrial electromagnetic induction and the force and direction of electromagnetic induction generally, is of almost equal importance to the "First series," as it represents the birth of the field concept. Through his experiments, Faraday had made the surprising discovery that the lines or curves of force generated by a magnet are independent of their source. Williams writes that: "in the same paper [i.e., the "Second series"] in which Faraday had noted the independence of the magnetic lines of force, he also introduced a new concept. This was the idea of the field of force generated in time and extending progressively through space. . . . For the next thirty years [Faraday] was to search for essentially two things: the way in which electric and magnetic forces were transmitted through space, and the relation between these forces and ponderable matter. It is no exaggeration to say that a fundamentally new way of looking at physical reality was introduced into science in this Second Series of the Experimental Researches. Hitherto all that had been really attended to was the effects of forces acting upon matter. Henceforth, the problem of the way in which the force was transmitted between particles of matter or even through empty space was to loom ever larger. Out of the successive answers given by Faraday, James Clerk Maxwell and Albert Einstein was to emerge modern field theory." (pp. 204-6).

        Illustrations of the Family of Psittacidae, or Parrots

      London: Edward Lear, 1832. Folio (21 x 14 inches). Letterpress title-page, dedication leaf, list of subscribers, list of plates, 42 fine hand-colored lithographic plates by and after Lear (some minor spotting). Modern half calf over contemporary marbled paper boards. "one which led to all Mr Gould's improvements" (Lear). FIRST EDITION OF LEAR'S RARE FIRST WORK, one of 175 copies printed. The first English ornithological work published in folio format with lithographic plates, and the first English illustrated monograph on a single species of bird, and the only separate work on birds published by Lear. Originally intended to be issued in fourteen parts publication ceased after the twelve due to lack of finance. Gould bought all the remaining stock, and destroyed lithographic stones after the parts were published in order to protect his 125 subscribers. Edward Lear is fondly remembered for his books of nonsense and for popularizing the limerick, but he was also a prolific watercolorist, who as a young man earned his livelihood and achieved recognition as an illustrator of birds and animals. Born in the north London suburb of Holloway on 12 May 1812, he was the youngest of twenty-one children born to Jeremiah and Ann Lear. His childhood was one of outward prosperity but in 1825, his father, a stockbroker, was ruined by a financial crisis brought on by unfortunate speculation, and consigned to the debtor's prison. At the age of fifteen the young and somewhat sickly Edward had to start earning his own living. Initially, he tinted drawings of birds for shops and printsellers, also doing work for various hospitals and medical men - "I began to draw for bread and cheese about 1827," he wrote "but only did uncommon queer shop-sketches - selling them for prices varying from ninepence to four shillings; coloring prints, screens and fans; awhile making morbid disease drawings, for hospitals and certain doctors of physic." This training suited him well and at an early age he was already taking pupils of his own. In 1830, at the age of 18, Lear obtained permission to work as a draughtsman at the Zoological Society gardens, located at Regent's Park. The following year he moved with his sister, Ann, to nearby lodgings in Albany Street, in order to be close to his work and during the course of the next two years devoted his time to recording the different members of the parrot family. He was encouraged in this task by N. A. Vigors, John Gould and Lord Stanley and between 1830 and 1832 "Illustrations of the Family Psittacidae, or Parrots" was published in parts. The publication of this remarkable work marked the beginning of what was to become an unrivaled reputation and the quality of the illustrations have often been favorably compared to those of Lear's American contemporary, John James Audubon. In Bird Illustrators: Some Artists in Early Lithography, Christine Jackson describes the artist's painstaking approach to his work: "Lear worked in great detail, outlining every feather and filling in the details with fine lines. This scientific accuracy extended to every part of the bird, from the beak to the claws. He noted on the plate the scale of the bird as shown in relation to its life-size, whenever he had reduced it . . . The colouring was done with opaque watercolours with touches of egg-white for parts of the feather requiring sheen, and for the eye, to add that 'life-touch.'" The result combines "the most exacting scientific naturalism with a masterly sense of design and intuitive sympathy for animal intelligence." Lear's publication was innovative in several significant ways. Unlike previous bird artists, he drew whenever possible from life rather than stuffed specimens, thus combining anatomical accuracy and subtlety of detail. Hardcover. Near Fine. Book.

        WESTMORLAND TO WIT. A LIST OF PERSONS ENTITLED TO VOTE IN THE ELECTION OF THE KNIGHTS OF THE SHIRE, for the county of Westmorland.

      Appleby: G. Atkinson, printer., 1832. . 8vo, (222x137mm), [2],(3-)84,66,24,108p. The title-page printed in portrait format, the text pages in landscape format, the title a little dust-soiled with some occasional and slight dust-soiling to several text leaves, stab-sewn and with the rather degraded brown paper spine, all that survives of the earlier (?original) wrappers, partly opened at the head, signature of D. Blaymire at the head of the title, preserved in a modern custom-made card folder and slipcase. Exceedingly rare, we can only locate one other copy of this book and that is in private hands. We believe this to be the eighth book to be printed in Appleby and certainly the earliest to have appeared from the press of George Atkinson (fl. 1832-44), indeed only one other book, a small religious pamphlet, is known that also bears his imprint. The text is arranged under the county's four electoral wards (each paginated separately): East, West, Kendal, and Lonsdale; with the voters arranged under the various townships within each ward. The details given include the name of the voter, their place of abode, the nature of their qualification to vote, and the place and type of the property owned with, where appropriate, the name of the resident tenant. There is one manuscript addition to the printed text, this we have checked against the other known copy of this work, and find that it appears, in the same hand, in both copies; an example therefore of an authorised manuscript addition to the printed text.

        A MEMOIR OF MISS HANNAH ADAMS, WRITTEN BY HERSELF, WITH ADDITIONAL

      1832. Good. ADAMS, Hannah [and Mrs. Hannah F. Lee]. A MEMOIR OF MISS HANNAH ADAMS, WRITTEN BY HERSELF, WITH ADDITIONAL NOTICES BY A FRIEND. Boston: Gray and Bowen, 1832. 110 pp. 12mo., green cloth with paper spine label. Fair to good, rear joint starting, spine label scraped with only remnants legible. Light pale spotting to cloth. Interior foxed, hinges starting. Rear flyleaf has small chip and small closed tear. Lovely lithograph frontispiece portrait, slight soil to page edges, not affecting image. Hannah Adams (1775-1831), though she thought herself timid and unworldly, was the first American woman to support herself as an author. Her first book, An Alphabetical Compendium of Various Sects (1784), went through several editions; later editions are titled A View of Religions. She was regarded by her contemporaries as an able and industrious author; yet she herself made only modest claims for her achievement.Her memoir, published posthumously, is the chief source of information about her; and, with characteristic modesty, it was written partly to raise money for her ailing younger sister.

As lately discoverd by Per Jössang, Pouillet is the true discoverer of the Curie-point. In this particular second edition of his "Élémens", Pouillet determines, as the first, the transition temperatures from ferromagnetism to paramagnetism of certain metals, e.g., for Nickel he gets 350°C compared to the 340°C found by Curie over 60 years later. Several other prominant physists like Drion, Fernet and Jamin mention in the 1870's the experiments by Pouillet and gave him the honour for this discovery. However when Curie in his thesis from 1895 describes his extensive measurements he did not mention Pouillet at all, and it seems that the original discoverer has been forgotten by time

IX as usual), 17 engraved frontispieces (most original tissue guards present), engraved and printed titles in each volume, and a folding facsimile, frontispieces, guards and engraved titles mildly foxed, all text remarkably crisp and clean; original dark-green moiré cloth, gilt backs, uncut, patterned endpapers (save where rebacked), all bindings rubbed at extremities, backstrips chipped at heads and tails, four volumes neatlky rebacked with old backstrips laid down, cases of four volumes loose or shaken (but all text blocks entirely sound), one volume with short split in backstrip, generally a nice, notably clean set in publisher's original binding.All volumes have title blocked in gilt at head of backstrips (this is a very early example of gilt blocking directly onto cloth) and the gilt of every volume is uniformly bright and clear. The frontispieces and title-vignettes are by Finden after various artists.This edition was originally intended as fourteen volumes, as stated on the printed titles of the first twelve volumes. 'When this Edition was first announced...the printer calculated that the whole might be comprised in fourteen volumes. While, however, the Notices of Lord Byron's Life were for the second time passing through the press, it was suggested to the Publisher, that the time had come when the Public had a right to look for such notes and illustrations to Lord Byron's text, as are usually appended to the pages of a deceased author of established and permanent popularity. These additions will extend the Work to seventeen volumes; the last of which will [and does] include a very copious and careful Index to the whole collection.' (Advertisement, vol. XIII).AN ORIGINAL COPY AND NOT, AS SOMETIMES, A MADE-UP SET. Despite the broken cases, which are wholly forgivable given the fragility of the publisher's binding which was not intended to last, this set is in very good contemporary state and has considerable shelf presence.COMPLETE SETS OF THIS NOTABLE EDITION ARE VERY SCARCE, THE MORE SO IN THIS EXTENDED FORM.Coleridge, xlvi; CBEL III, 187(2a).

One of the most important assertions of the supremacy of federal over state law in the early history of the nation, this is Jackson's famous proclamation in which he denounced nullification as treason and told the people of South Carolina in no uncertain terms that he proposed to enforce the laws of the United States. "... I consider then, the power to annul a law of the United States, assumed by one State, incompatible with the existence of the Union, contradicted expressly by the letter of the Constitution, unauthorized by its spirit, inconsistent with every principle on which it was founded, and destructive of the great object for which it was formed."

        Andrew Jackson Disdains Rewarding One Of His Political Enemies

      "He appears to have some interest of feeling in this case for his Georgia friends and particularly as it is given...to such an open undisguised tra- ducer of the administration as he says Mr. Longstreet is." Jackson believed that changing officeholders would prevent the development of a corrupt bureaucracy. He implemented the theory of ro- tation in office, declaring it "a leading principle in the republican creed." In practice, this fine theory involved rewarding Jackson's support- ers and fellow party members with government posts, as a way to strengthen party loyalty. This system of firing opponents and filling their places with party loyalists came to be known as the "spoils system," and Jackson received the reputation of being its initiator. During Jackson's first term, there was a high tariff on imports of manufactured goods made in Europe. This made those goods more expensive than ones from the northern U.S., raising the prices paid by planters in the South. Southern politicians argued that high tariffs benefited northern industrialists at the expense of southern farmers. South Carolina went so far as to claim the right to "nullify"Ñdeclare voidÑthe tariff legislation, and more generally the right of a state to nullify any Federal laws which went against its interests. Although Jackson sympathized with the South in the tariff debate, he supported a strong union with effec- tive powers for the central government and violently opposed nullification. He vowed to send troops to South Carolina to enforce the laws, and in December 1832 issued a resounding proclamation against the "nullifiers," stating that he considered "the power to annul a law of the United States, assumed by one state, incompatible with the existence of the Union." South Carolina, and by ex- tension all nullifiers, the President declared, stood on "the brink of insurrection and treason. In 1833, Congress passed a "force bill" which authorized Jackson to use violence to preserve the Union. Augustus Baldwin Longstreet was the publisher of the Augusta (Georgia) States Rights Sentinel, a newspaper that advocated nullification in the recent crisis and thus opposed Jackson's policies. The year after this letter, he would publish what is considered the South's first important literary work, "Georgia Scenes, Characters, Incidents, Etc. in the First Half Century." His brother Gilbert shared his politics. These Longstreet brothers were uncles of Confederate General James Longstreet - Lee's famed "war horse." Gilbert owned rights to the Augusta- Savannah mail route and there were complaints that under his aegis, the mails were not delivered often enough. The Georgia congressional delegation brought these to the President's attention. Perhaps spoils politics was also on Jackson's mind when he wrote the following letter, which was ostensibly about bidding and the granting of other Georgia postal routes. The William Barry mentioned was Jackson's Postmaster General. John Forsythe, his Secretary of State, was a Georgian who, when South Carolina nullified the federal tariff in 1832 and asked Georgia to follow persuaded his fellow Georgians to support Jackson instead of its neighbor. Autograph Letter Signed, Washington, November 8, 1834, to Charles K. Gard- ner, acting postmaster responsible for postal appointments, criticizing the selec- tion of political foe (and possibly inept) Longstreet for a government contract instead of one of the President's supporters. "I am this moment advised that there is great complaint of unfairness in the letting of the route in Georgia - from Augusta to Savannah. The complaints came to me through a high source and is well calculated to do the Department an injury, as it would seem to throw a suspicion that it was done to the injury of our friends, to favor Mr. Longstreet a bitter enemy and constant reviler of the administration. It is stated that Mr. Reesides proposed to carry the mail for $10,000 per annum to run the one half the time on the South Carolina side & one half on the Georgia side, and the Messrs. Holliday proposed to carry the mail on the Georgia side for $8,500 and round by Waynesborough, ten miles round, for $8,800. Mr. Reeside's proposal was accepted and as alleged transferred to Mr. Longstreet. It is complained of because passing on the east on the South Carolina side of the river is a useless route & costs the government $1,500 without any public benefit. If this ar- rangement is not closed, let it be kept open for the return of Major Barry & I wish you to see Major Forsythe on this subject - he appears to have some interest of feeling in this case for his Georgia friends and particularly as it is given by Mr. Reesides to such an open undisguised traducer of the administration as he says Mr. Longstreet is."
