        Experimental Researches in Electricity, Third Series

      London: Richard Taylor, Red Lion Court, Fleet Street, 1833. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. First Edition. [2], 23-54 plus one plate. 4to. 8 1/8 x 10 inches. The offprint issue, but extracted from a bound volume (trimmed, spotted page edges, stitching loose). INSCRIBED by Faraday "To Amedeo Avogadro, x x x, of Turin, from the author" in the upper right hand corner. Trimmed so that only the lower part of Avogadro's name and "auth" of "author" are present. Soft center fold. Plate in rear is foxed. Wraps. "The first and second series of Experimental Researches had been concerned with the relations between electricity and magnetism. In the summer of 1832 Faraday appeared to go off on a tangent, with an investigation into the identity of the electricities produced by the various means then known. His commitment to the unity of force led him to believe that the electricities produced by electrostatic generators, voltaic cells, thermocouples, dynamos, and electric fishes were identical, but belief was no substitute for proof. Furthermore, this identity had been challenged by Sir Humphrey Davy's brother John [ and others ], who insisted that electrical effects were not produced by a single agent but were the complex results of a combination of powers." (DSB Vol 3-4, p 535) "'The progress of the electrical researches which I have had the honour to present to the Royal Society, [ Faraday ] wrote, brought me to a point at which it was essential for the further prosecution of my inquiries that no doubt should remain of the identity or distinction of electricities excited by different means.' The Third Series of Experimental Researches in Electricity was devoted to this end. [ In this Series' experimental approach ], by criticizing the experiments of others [ Faraday ] wanted to remove the seeming obstacles to the admission of the identity of electricities and by utilizing other experiments done by himself and others he wished to establish the identity. For a scientific paper of this period it is heavily footnoted and reveals Faraday's scholarship. ... Whenever there was the slightest doubt as to the accuracy of an experiment, Faraday repeated it. The result was overwhelming and there was no doubt that he had proved his point." (L Pearce Williams, Michael Faraday, p213). L Pearce Williams also details how these experiments sowed the seeds which eventually led Faraday to establish a solid foundation for the science of electrochemistry. As he summarized it: "Faraday could not foresee that in following out these ideas he would not only provide a solid foundation for the science of electrochemistry, but would also throw down a challenge to the physicists of his day. For here, for the first time in his work, was the denial of action at a distance." (p223) This Third Series contains 2 papers - 7. Identity of Electricities derived from different sources., and 8. Relation by Measure of common [ static ] and voltaic Electricity. These articles are an important transitional work by Faraday, establishing that the electricities are the same regardless of source, and setting up future work that would establish the science of electrochemistry. Read Jan 10 and 17th, this is the first appearance of this lecture, in the rare offprint form. It was published in the Phil Trans: 23-54, and also in Phil Mag. 1833. It was reprinted in Faraday's famous three volume "Experimental Researches in Electricity" in 1839-55. Avogadro, to whom Faraday inscribed this offprint, was an Italian chemist who is hailed as a founder of the atomic-molecular theory. Avogadro's law is named after him. Inscribed material by Faraday is uncommon. References: DSB, Jeffreys #207. L Pearce Williams, Michael Faraday. Ekeloff 906a (referring to the collected Experimental Researches in Electricity).

Charles Wells was described in New York Directories as a bookbinding until at least 1832; thereafter he was listed as a bookseller; in 1838 he appears in the Directories as a publisher, and then in 1844 his trade is simply described as "books." There is a good possiblility that the present binding came from his shop. Wells may have been the chief importer and user of English-made dies.

        Vue de l'Entrée de Sydney-Cove. (Nouvelle Galles du Sud)

      Paris: Tastu, 1833. Lithographed view on china paper, 175 x 315 mm (image size); mounted. Good view of Sydney, taken during the visit of the French expedition of Dumont-Durville, which spent a few weeks in Sydney. The view is taken from what is now the Botanic Gardens, towards Lady Macquarie's Chair. An elegant four-in-hand carriage occupies the foreground, but it is the glimpses of Sydney beyond that are of most interest.The Astrolabe sailed via the Cape of Good Hope, through Bass Straits, stopped at Port Phillip, and arrived at Sydney on December 2, 1828. The expedition found that the local authorities were disturbed by renewed French activity in Australian waters and were actively working to forestall French settlements, with the declaration "the whole of New Holland is subject to His Britannic Majesty's Government".Governor Darling with growing anxiety watched as Dumont d'Urville went about his business in Sydney wearing full uniform, accompanied by officers similarly dressed. After a stay of only 17 days the Astrolabe sailed for New Zealand.A huge amounts of scientific data was collected described and illustrated in sumptuous folio atlases. This fine view was published soon after the expedition returned to Paris. Interestingly, at the time of this visit plans were already in place to begin work on the new Government House, as Governors Brisbane, Darling and Bourke had all complained about the residence shown here.

        Experiments and Observations on the Gastric Juice, and the Physiology of Digestion

      Plattsburgh [NY]: F.P. Allen, 1833. 4to. (218 x 135 mm), 280 pp. three wood-engraved figures in text. Original tan paper-covered boards, linen backstrip, printed paper label, cloth slipcase. Scattered foxing throughout as always, front hinge and endpapers repaired, label chipped, some paper missing from front board, else a very nice copy of a fragile book. First edition of what has been termed the greatest single contribution to the knowledge of gastric digestion. Beaumont was an army surgeon at Fort Mackinac, Michigan when he first attended Alexis St. Martin, a French Canadian woodsman who had suffered an accidental gunshot wound to the stomach. Against all probability Beaumont saved his life and, as the hole healed, used the opportunity to study the physiological process of digestion by maintaining access to St. MartinÕs stomach using a specially constructed skin flap. William Osler was fascinated by the case and, when St. Martin died at the age of 78, tried unsuccessfully to acquire his stomach for the Army Medical Museum; he later wrote: ?'To the medical bibliographer there are few more treasured Americana than the brown-backed, poorly printed octavo volume of 280 pages with the imprint Plattsburgh, Printed by F.P. Allen, 1833". The first edition is generally believed to have been 1000 copies. The only book to appear in three Grolier One Hundreds (American #38, Science #10, Medicine #61). Norman 152. Heralds of Science 130. Howes B291 (?'most important American contribution to medical science?").

Original paper over boards, sympathetic modern with cloth backstrip. Titles printed on the front board in black. Wear to binding extremities of the boards; contents uniformly toned, scattered foxing. Overall in VERY GOOD ANTIQUARIAN CONDITION First American Edition, important for our study of early American illustration, now very scarce; the American Antiquarian Society copy is seriously defective. Ours is currently the only copy on the market. Three of the woodcuts are signed "A.B." which Sinclair Hamilton attributes to Abel Brown, perhaps the most influential woodcut engraver in Boston during the early 19th-century. "Bowen," he says, "was the real founder of the art of wood- engraving here, not so much by his own productions as by the stimulus he gave to the subject. He was an enthusiast, always projecting works to be illustrated in this manner, and, though rarely making a profit for himself, he was thus the cause of much being done. He was self-taught, copying the designs and methods of those English examples which in- spired him. Before his time engraving on copper and type- metal had been done here with fair success. But the aims, processes and results of wood-engraving were so well perceived and achieved in this city, that for years it possessed almost a monopoly of the business. And," our informant adds, "the work done a half century ago was really good in style and manner ; so that to-day the greatest advance noticeable is mainly due to improvements in printing, paper and ink. That Bowen was unable to command the means to succeed largely was the misfortune of the times ; that he should have strus:- gled on, year after year, in the face of reverses, poverty, and long-continued illness, is the highest proof that he possessed that spark of vital energy which we call genius." * Copies in any condition are uncommon on the market; one rarely finds a good, complete copy, as here. * REFERENCES: Sabin 41032.

        England and America. A Comparison of the Social and Politcal State of Both Nations

      London: Richard Bentley, New Burlington Street, 1833. First Edition. xii, 331, [1]; iv, 341, [1] pp. 2 vols. 8vo. Contemporary quarter tan calf and marbled boards. R.E. Narby, Bookseller & Printer, Warminster Label. Fine. Founder of the "New Colonization System" Following imprisonment, Wakefield began to study colonial affairs of Australia with an eye towards immigration. Recognizing that the depressed condition of Australian affairs was due to a lack of efficiency and sensible handling he gathered his theories for correcting the problems and first published them in "A Letter from Sydney" (London 1829) under the name Robert Gouger. It was so well done that the author was supposed to be an immigrant. He revised and refined these views for his "New Colonization System" in "England and America" as the chapter the "Art of Colonisation."The theories for his "System" were to abolish free grants of agricultural land, requiring a fixed price which would be kept low enough so that a laborer would be able to purchase land after a few years [this to reduce the number of ex-convicts laborers from receiving land for which they had no use], to regulate immigration and to use tax monies from the rental of grants to bring laborers to the colonies. One of the main results of his publications and efforts was the founding of the National Colonization Society and then the South Australian Association, the latter intended to be based upon Wakefield's theories. He was also a close advisor to the Molesworth Committee. On the appointment of Lord Durham to Canada in 1838, Wakefield became interested in that territory and is credited with having greatly assisted Durham with his famous "Report on the Affairs of British North America." He also acted as an adviser to Sir Charles Theophilus Metcalfe in Canada in the 1840's. In 1837 Wakefield had formed the New Zealand Association and spent most of years following directing the affairs of the association from England while his brother William Hayward Wakefield directed and managed it from New Zealand.

        Historia do descobrimento e conquista da India pelos Portugueses. Nova edição.

      Lisbon, typographia Rollandiana, 1833. - Small 4to. 8 vols. bound in 7. Original cloth with giltstamped title to appealingly gilt spine. Marbled endpapers. All edges red. An early history of the Portuguese discovery and conquest of India. Large portions are concerned with the exploits of Afonso de Albuquerque and Vasco da Gama, whose journey via Ormuz, Mucat (Mazcate), Qatif (Catifa), Bahrain (Baharê), Khor Fakkan (Orfacão), etc. is comparable in importance only to Columbus’s in the west, as it "opened the way for the maritime invasion of the East by Europe" (PMM 42). Da Gama’s pioneering sea voyage ranks amongst the greatest historic events of the second millennium and as "one of the defining moments in the history of exploration" (BBC History, online). It is also considered the turning point in the political history of the Arabian Gulf region, followed as it was by a prolonged period of east-west commerce, conquest and conflict. - The Portuguese historian and traveller Fernão Lopez de Castanheda (1500-59) accompanied his father, a royal officer, to Portuguese India and to the Moluccas. He spent the next ten years travelling through Asia. During this period he collected materials for his "Historia", both from personal observation and from the documents and reports of others. The work was first published in 1552-61. - Some occasional browning. Binding somewhat rubbed and bumped at extremeties, with minor worming. Provenance: From the library of Paulo Arantes with his bookplate and ownership (dated 1925) on title page. Howgego I, C67. OCLC 313028250. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Ixia Tricolor / Ixia Tricolore [Harlequin Flower]

      [C.L.F. Panckoucke, Paris 1833 - Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Victor. Very good condition apart a small, soft crease to the top left corner, and some very slight foxing at sheet edges top and right. A beautiful image from "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs": one of greatest flower books ever published by the most celebrated flower painter of all time. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in his three great works: Les Liliacees (1802-1816), Les Roses (1817-1824) and the work from which this image comes Choix des plus belles fleurs. et . des plus belles fruits which was published in 36 parts with 144 plates between 1827 and 1833. The present image shows Redouté at his most assured, combining the best of his artistic background with his skill as an observer of nature. He writes in the preface to the Choix : ''It is with the benefit of experience, and encouraged by the most flattering approval of naturalists and painters of France and abroad, that I undertook took this most agreeable of botanical works. By ceaseless observation of nature, in its constancy and its variety of forms and colours, I believe that I have reached that synthesis of botanical accuracy, composition and colouration that is essential to produce the perfect image of the plant kingdom.' Cf. Hunt Redouteana 21; cf. Dunthorne p 235; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 129; cf. Nissen BBI 1591; cf. Pritzel 7456; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8750.

        Ladies' Society Book for Promoting the Early Education of Negro Children

      London: Printed by Edward Suter for The Ladies' Society for Promoting the Early Education of Negro Children. (1833). First. Folio. Six aquatints. Twentieth-century gray morocco, gilt title on front board. Hand-lettered title page, plus twelve leaves, tipped onto stubbs, the last leaf of the text is in facsimile. A few spots on the front board, else near fine, internally fine and bright. The six aquatints had originally appeared a decade earlier in Clark's Ten Views in the Island of Antigua. The sheets for this were all published separately instead of as a single bound work (thus the absence of a printed title page).The Ladies' Society for Promoting the Early Education of Negro Children was a charity began as a result of the emancipation of the slaves by England and was partly dependent on government funding. The group operated largely by supporting the already existing schools in the West Indies, their main aim was "to assist whatever means of education may already be at hand." The stunning and beautiful aquatints illustrate the stages of harvesting and refining sugar for export, being the labor-intensive industry for which slaves were required. The text accompanying each presents an informative, if optimistic, account of life in the cane fields. Presumably these large and beautifully prepared leaves were for use in school or in fund-raising.A fascinating and strikingly beautiful volume illustrating the important role of women's' societies in achieving and furthering social justice. Extremely rare. OCLC locates a single copy of the loose sheets (otherwise conforming to this example) at the John Carter Brown Library. .
