        Theoria residuorum biquadraticorum. Commentatio prima [- secunda].

      Göttingen: Dieterich, 1828 [- 1832]. First edition, very rare separately-paginated offprint issues, of these two important papers, in which Gauss coined the term 'complex number' and introduced the complex plane now known as the 'Gaussian plane'. Gauss offprints are especially difficult to find on the market in contemporary bindings, most having been removed from sammelbands and rebound later. "The foundations of the theory of algebraic integers were laid by Gauss in his important work Theoria residuorum biquadraticorum, Commentatio II, which appeared in 1832, in which he considered the numbers a + bi (i = ?-1)" (Klein, p. 320). "In the Disquisitiones [Arithmeticae, 1801], Gauss gave the first rigorous proof of 'the gem of arithmetic' -- the law of quadratic reciprocity. In a series of papers published between 1808 and 1817 Gauss worked on reciprocity laws for congruences of higher degree, and in two papers published in 1828 and 1832 stated (but did not prove) the law of biquadratic [i.e., quartic] reciprocity" (Ewald, p. 306). "In the second part of his study of biquadratic residues (1832), [Gauss] argued that number theory is revealed in its "entire simplicity and natural beauty" (Sect. 30) when the field of arithmetic is extended to the imaginary numbers. He explained that this meant admitting numbers of the form a + bi. "Such numbers," he said, "will be called complex integers". More precisely, he went on in the next section, the domain of complex numbers a + bi contains the real numbers, for which b = 0 and the imaginary numbers, for which b is not zero. Then, in Sect. 32, he set out the arithmetical rules for dealing with complex numbers. We read this as a step away from the idea that i is to be understood or explained as some kind of a square root, and towards the idea that it is some kind of formal expression to be understood more algebraically" (Bottazzini & Gray, p. 71). These papers directly influenced 20th and 21st century mathematics: after reading them in 1947, the great French mathematician André Weil was inspired to formulate the 'Weil Conjectures', which had a profound effect on the subsequent development of number theory and algebraic geometry (see below). No copies listed on ABPC/RBH in the last 50 years. Quadratic reciprocity is a result about 'modular arithmetic.' Two integers (whole numbers) m and n are said to be equal modulo a positive integer p if m - n is an integer multiple of p (so there are only p distinct integers modulo p). "The first really great achievement in the study of modular arithmetic was Carl Friedrich Gauss's proof in 1796 of his celebrated law of quadratic reciprocity ... It states that 'if p is a prime number, then the number of square roots of an integer n in arithmetic modulo p [i.e., the solutions modulo p of the equation x2 = n (mod p)] depends only on p modulo 4n'" (Taylor). The attempt to generalize quadratic reciprocity for powers higher than the second was one of the main goals that led nineteenth-century mathematicians, including Gauss himself, as well as Richard Dedekind, Gustav Lejeune Dirichlet, Gotthold Eisenstein, David Hilbert, Carl Jacobi and Eduard Kummer, to the study of general algebraic number fields (it was Eisenstein who gave the first proof of biquadratic reciprocity). The ninth in the list of 23 unsolved problems which David Hilbert proposed to the International Congress of Mathematicians in 1900 asked for the "Proof of the most general reciprocity law for an arbitrary number field." "In studying the congruence x4 = k (mod p) Gauss concentrated on the central case where the modulus p is a prime of the form 4n + 1, and found himself obliged to examine the complex factors into which prime numbers of such a form can be decomposed. He was thereby led to widen his investigations from the ordinary integers to the complex integers, i.e., to numbers of the form a + bi, where a and b are real integers. Gauss showed that many of the properties of real integers are shared by the complex integers -- for example that each complex integer has a unique prime factorization; that the Euclidean algorithm for finding the greatest common divisor of two integers carries over to the complex case; that Fermat's theorem has a complex analogue; and the like. "The principal methodological innovation in these investigations was the widening of the number concept to embrace the complex integers. Mathematicians in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries had been almost as distrustful of imaginary numbers as of infinitesimals, and even Leibniz could write: "The nature of things, the mother of eternal manifolds, or rather the divine spirit, is more jealous of its splendid multiplicity than to allow everything to be herded together under a common genus. Therefore it found a sublime and wonderful refuge in that miracle of analysis, the monstrum of the ideal world, almost an amphibium between being and non-being, which we call the imaginary roots." "Gauss was not the first to conceive of representing complex numbers by points in the plane ... the idea had already occurred to John Wallis (in the Treatise of algebra, 1685), to Caspar Wessel in 1792, and to Jean Robert Argand in 1806; and William Rowan Hamilton was later to popularize the conception of a complex number as an ordered couple of real numbers. But Gauss was the first to use complex integers in a systematic way -- in his work on biquadratic residues. His remarks on the complex integers touch upon a central theme in nineteenth-century mathematics: the widening of the number concept, and the growth of abstract algebra" (Ewald, pp. 306-7). "Two of the papers that helped shape the research in number theory during the second half of this century directly referred to Gauss's work on biquadratic residues: first, there is Weil's paper from 1949 on equations over finite fields in which he announced the Weil Conjectures and which was inspired directly by reading Gauss: "In 1947, in Chicago, I felt bored and depressed, and, not knowing what to do, I started reading Gauss's two memoirs on biquadratic residues, which I had never read before. The Gaussian integers occur in the second paper. The first one deals essentially with the number of solutions of ax4 - by4 = 1 in the prime field modulo p, and with the connection between these and certain Gaussian sums; actually the method is exactly the same that is applied in the last section of the Disquisitiones to the Gaussian sums of order 3 and the equation ax3 - by3 = 1. Then I noticed that similar principles can be applied to all equations of the form axm + bym + czr + ... = 0, and that this implies the truth of the "Riemann hypothesis" ... for all curves axn + byn + czn = 0 over finite fields ... This led me in turn to conjectures about varieties over finite fields," namely the Weil Conjectures. "The other central theme in number theory during the last few decades came into being in two papers by Birch & Swinnerton-Dyer: while studying the elliptic curves y2 = x3 - Dx they were led to an amazing conjecture that linked local and global data of elliptic curves ... in these papers, the quartic reciprocity plays a central role in checking some instances of their conjectures" (Lemmermeyer, pp. xii-xiii). The Weil conjectures were proved largely by Alexander Grothendieck, using his vast reformulation and generalization of modern algebraic geometry, and by his student Pierre Deligne. The Birch & Swinnerton-Dyer conjecture, chosen as one of the seven Millennium Prize Problems listed by the Clay Mathematics Institute, is still unsolved. These papers were read on April 5, 1825 and April 15, 1831 and were published in Vols. 6 & 7 of the Commentationes Societatis Regiae Scientiarum Gottingensis, pp. 27-56 & 89-148.

        A Plane Chart of the World on Mercator's Projection, With the Tracks & Discoveries of the Principal and most recent Navigators.

      John Harris, London 1832 - Engraved map, 315 x 432 mm. (image size), original hand-colouring. An attractive children's educational map of the WorldThe map is based on the work of the Abbé Gaultier, an educationalist originally from Piedmont, who had settled in France in 1780 and later fled the revolution to London. Gaultier began publishing his works in the late eighteenth century, and his philosophy of teaching geographical knowledge through games was very influential for game-makers and educational publishers on the continent and in England. He died in 1818 but his Geography continued to be reprinted. In 1815 it was "collated with the author's last Paris edition by Jehoshaphat Aspin", a cartographer. (see Juliana Bayfield, 'Games of Virtue and Learning', The La Trobe Journal, 1997). Aspin seems to have produced the first edition of this work in 1821.Aspin's versions of the maps evidently had some success as an entertainment and teaching aid. They were originally issued as a portfolio or atlas, which included maps of many different parts of the world, some blank, as here, and others with geographical information added. Although bibliographical information is a little sketchy, similar English editions appear to have been published in 1821, 1823, 1829 and 1838. This particular map seems to derive from the "fourth" edition, the Atlas adapted to the Abbe? Gaultier's Geographical Games of 1838, in which some maps were dated as early as 1832.All editions of the full atlas are now very scarce, with the 1838 edition being the only one held in Australia, at the National Library of Australia.

      - Imprimerie de Madame-Delaunay, Paris 1832, 13x20,5cm, 4 volumes reliés. - Record Pierre: vincolanti mezza pelle di pecora della marina, di nuovo con false nervi decorati (1860). La pubblicazione di gran parte originale. Invio: Monsieur Leduc, l'autore di Balzac. Cancellature sulla qualificazione e il nome del dedicatario suggerisce che Balzac riprese la sua dedizione. 13 Gli ultimi due volumi contengono edizione originale: il Consiglio, la Borsa, il dovere di Singles di una donna, l'inizio della donna di trent'anni, la Rendezvous, il dito di Dio, i due incontri, il Espiazione (cinque capitoli, non collegati, formano la prima bozza della donna di trenta anni). - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Edition en grande partie originale,  les deux derniers volumes contiennent en édition originale : "Le Conseil", "La Bourse", "Le Devoir d'une femme", "Les Célibataires", "Le début de la Femme de trente ans", "Le Rendez-vous", "Le Doigt de Dieu", "Les deux rencontres", "L'expiation" (cinq chapitres qui, sans lien entre eux, forment le premier jet de la Femme de trente ans). Reliures en demi basane marine, dos à quatre faux nerfs ornés de pointillés et fleurons dorés, plats de papier marbré, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, tranches mouchetées, reliures légèrement postérieures datant de la seconde partie du XIXème. Ex-donos à la plume en têtes des gardes des deux premiers volumes. Quelques rousseurs affectant principalement la fin du quatrième et dernier volume. Très rare et énigmatique envoi autographe signé d'Honoré de Balzac : à Le Duc, l'auteur, de Balzac." Des ratures autographes sur le titre de civilité et le nom du dédicataire indiquent que Balzac a repris son envoi. Ainsi l'auteur adresse dans un premier temps son ouvrage à « Monsieur Delmar », banquier allemand et beau-frère de Mme Couturier de Saint-Clair (chez qui Balzac lira sa pièce L'Ecole des Ménages en mars 1839), avant de biffer son nom, dans un geste révélateur de ses rapports houleux avec le monde de la Finance et ses représentants.  L'auteur dédicace ensuite son livre « à Le Duc », sans autre mention, indiquant une réelle familiarité avec ce dédicataire qui ne figure pourtant dans aucune des biographies de Balzac. Il pourrait donc s'agir du personnage "Le Duc" de la pièce Vautrin interprété par Jemma au Théâtre de la Porte-Saint-Martin en 1840, avant que la pièce, écrite dans l'espoir de rembourser les dettes de Balzac, ne soit interdite.   Il ne serait guère surprenant que Balzac, qui affectionnait les surnoms, ait ainsi dédicacé ces Scènes de la vie privée - dont une nouvelle originale relate une histoire d'argent pervertissant le jugement d'un artiste - à l'un des acteurs malheureux qui subit avec lui les foudres de la critiques et de la censure.  Avec cette dédicace palimpseste, Balzac semble ainsi affirmer la suprématie de l'art sur les vaines vélléités financières.

        Sketch of the History of Van Diemen's Land, illustrated by a map of the island and an account of the Van Diemen's Land Company.

      London: John Richardson, 1832. Octavo, with two engraved plates and a large hand-coloured folding map; very good in original boards with green cloth spine and printed label. First edition. An important account of Tasmania, intended for distribution among shareholders and prospective shareholders of the Van Diemen's Land Company, reprinting several of the company's reports, including the significant (and rare) third report of 1828 detailing the explorations of the company's explorers, Alexander Goldie, Henry Hellyer, and Joseph Fossey. It was Hellyer who 'found a cliff of slate on the Arthur River, and promptly engraved on a large slab the words "Whoever is found stealing slate from this quarry, will be dealt with according to law". Apart from the inherent unlikelihood of anyone making off with large quantities of slate, the claim of ownership is revealing for its total self-assurance in the face of the wilderness...' (People, Print and Paper). The work is wide ranging, including sections on geography, wildlife, trade and emigration.Of interest is the correspondence contained in the appendix between the governor George Arthur and his superiors in London, including Viscount Goderich and Sir George Murray, regarding the escalating tension between settlers and the Tasmanian Aborigines. The appendix also includes the substantial "Extract from the Report of the Aborigines Committee, 19th March 1830."From the library of Australiana collector Tristan Buestt with his bookplate.

        The Miscellaneous Works of Oliver Goldsmith.

      London: 1832. Six volumes duodecimo, bound in uniform contemporary polished sheep with gilt spines. Choice example of colonial Sydney bookbinding, with each volume bearing the ticket of stationer William Moffitt of Pitt Street (most often remembered as printer and distributor of the New South Wales Calendar and General Post Office Directory). Moffitt was also a skilled engraver, credited with creating the first banknotes for New Zealand. His life is a good example of the opportunities for personal and class advancement available in New South Wales. Transported for larceny in 1827, he was assigned to the Engineer's Department and married a free immigrant. A devoted and intelligent businessman, Moffitt's retail premises on Pitt Street were considered the grandest in Sydney Town on the eve of the gold rush, and he died in 1874 with a staggering personal fortune valued in excess of £200,000. Happily, success never changed his style: 'he avoided public life, devoting himself to his business and to unobtrusive acts of private benevolence' (ADB). Joints a little rubbed, preliminary leaves of the first volume moderately browned and water stained, a very good set.

        Histoire générale et particulière des anomalies de l'organisation chez l'homme et les animaux, ouvrage comprenant des recherches sur les caractères, la classification, l'influence physiologique et pathologique, les rapports généraux, les lois et les causes des monstruosités, des variétés et vices de conformation, ou traité de tératologie.

      Paris, Baillière, 1832-1837. ____ Première édition. Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire est l'inventeur du mot tératologie. Atlas illustré de 20 planches gravées de monstres. He "organised all known human and animal malformations taxonomically. Many of the principles governing abnormal development were enunciated for the first time in this work. It also introduced hundreds of names for specific malformations, many of which are still in use. For comprehensive coverage of rare anomalies it is still of value as a reference source." Garrison-Morton 534.58. "The only son of Etienne Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire, Isidore (...) published in 1832 the first of three large volumes on monsters (...) Although the idea of seeking laws governing the formation of monsters was his father's, Isidore Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire nonetheless grouped and brought into accord, judiciously and critically, a great number of scattered facts. In 1832 he coined the word teratology, to designate the science of monsters." DSB 5, 359. Provenance : Docteur G. Nivert, Tours (cachet sec sur les faux-titres) Petits éclats à deux coiffes.
