        Manuel Pratique du Lithographe. Ouvrage qui a obtenu une mà daille de la Socià tà d'encouragement pour l'industrie nationale, au Concoures de 1830, augmente de notes sur les nouveaux procedes avec les lois & ordonnances qui regissent cette profession par M. Jules Desportes, Imprimeur Lithographe.

      Paris: Chez l'auteur 1834 - First edition, xxxii,230,[8]pp., [jump in pagination from 203-208 but complete], the text is entirely in lithographic script, 4 plates of lithographic utensils and materials, the fore-edge of the upper board has suffered from what appears to be a spill of acid (this was no doubt done by a practising lithographer), this has burnt through the board and effected the blank fore-edge of the first 25 leaves, it is a little unsightly but doesn't effect the text, cont. quarter calf, over patterned paper boards, rubbed. "Jules Desportes was a lithographic printer of note who founded and managed the first lithographic trade journal, 'Le Lithographe, journal des artistes et des imprimeurs' (Paris and Rotterdam, 1837-48). he exercised an important influence on French lithography in the 1830s and 1840s, and his 'Manuel pratique du lithographe' provides the best example I know of the work of a lithographic printer who used the process of lithography to produce his own book."â€"Twyman.

        James Buchanan: The United States Needs to Be Governed by the Democratic Party

      - Ò.the perpetuity & prospering of the people of this union depend upon the ascendancy of Democratic principles.Ó Buchanan served as U.S. minister to Russia during Andrew JacksonÕs administration, then was U.S. Senator from Pennsylvania from 1834-1845. In 1844, he and Lewis Cass challenged former President Van Buren for the Democratic presidential nomination. When it became clear that the convention was deadlocked, Jackson protege James K. Polk was put forth as a "dark horse" candidate, and he ended up as the partyÕs nominee. Recognizing Buchanan's support of the ticket and Pennsylvania's contribution to his election, Polk appointed Buchanan Secretary of State. Buchanan remained in office for Polk's full term, and was closely associated with the administration's leading measures, particularly the annexation of Oregon and the Mexican War. It was a foregone conclusion that Buchanan would seek the 1848 nomination. Autograph Letter Signed as Secretary of State, marked "Private," Washington, May 20, 1847, to Philadelphia Democrat George Guier (who was apparently not one of his supporters), discussing his political goals and stating his philosophy that the Democrats are the party that most benefits the nation. ÒI ought long ago to have acknowledged the receipt of your favor of the 30th ultimo.The truth is that business of the Department is so incessant & pressing that I am compelled to neglect my private correspondents. Why did you not write to me on the subject of your son-in-lawÕs appointment as a second lieutenant. I should most cheerfully have sustained his application. Although you and I have not been as good friends as I could desire, yet I have always justly appreciated your services & merits as a Democrat. Of this I could long since have given you proof had I not supposed my motives might have been mistaken. I am now encouraged to drop this hint only by the kind tone of your letter. You subscribed yourself my friend, and as you have never yet been charged with hypocracy, I accept the pledge with all my heart. All I desire of you in this character is that you shall think & speak as kindly of me as I do of you. I have no ambitious aspirations beyond that of a desire to obtain & preserve the good opinion of my fellow citizens. Your friendship for me will not, therefore, cost you much. We shall never quarrel about your Presidential preferences; because I know you will never support any candidate unless he be a good Democrat. A long experience in public life has convinced me that the perpetuity & prospering of the people of this union depend upon the ascendancy of Democratic principles in the administration of their Government. I shall, therefore, be in favor of that man for President, whoever he may be, best calculated to secure this ascendancy. Let us, therefore, shake hands & be good friends hereafter." Failing to receive the presidential nomination in 1848 or 1852, Buchanan was appointed minister to Britain by President Franklin Pierce. This meant that he was out of the country from 1853-1856, and did not have to stake out a position on sectional flare-ups over the Kansas-Nebraska Act, the fugitive slave law, and the organization of the Kansas Territory. Having offended no one North or South, he was admirably situated to capture the Democratic nomination in 1856. So in the end, he obtained the prize he so long sought - the presidency - only to find himself at the center of the gargantuan storm of secession and its prelude, through which he was unable to navigate.

"Raccolti e pubblicati da Audot Padre, Membro della Società Geografica". "Prima edizione italiana con aggiunte e correzioni". Opera completa in sette parti raccolte in cinque tomi. Cm.25,5x16,8. Legature leggermente allentate in mz.pelle coeva, con titoli e fregi in oro ai dorsi. Spellature ai piatti marmorizzati. Fioriture fisiologiche. Piano dell'Opera: Tomo I: "Granducato di Toscana" (pg.4, VIII, 108. Con 26 tavole di cui due in doppia suite); Tomo II (pg.378): Parte I: "Regno di Napoli" (con 68 tavole di cui 27 in doppia suite ed una in quadrupla); Parte II: "Sicilia e Malta" (con 29 tavole di cui 10 in doppia suite ed una in quadrupla); Tomo III, parte I e II: "Roma" (pg.VI, 368. Con 88 tavole di cui 37 in doppia suite, una in tripla ed una in quadrupla. I due frontespizi collazionati all'inizio del volume); Tomo IV: "Regno Lombardo-Veneto e minori stati vicini" (pg.(4), 320. Con 60 tavole di cui 23 in doppia suite, uno in tripla e due in quarta. I "minori stati vicini" sono i Ducati di Parma, Modena, Lucca e l'Isola di Corsica); Tomo V: "Stati del Re di Sardegna". Pg.(4), 328. Con 53 tavole di cui 25 in doppia suite). Alcune tavole risultano staccate, con relativi logici segni di usura ai margini sporgenti. Come sovente accade nell'editoria ottocentesca, il ridondante apparato iconografico dell'opera ne rende un pò complicata la collazione. Fortunatamente il testo dell'Audot è fornito, ad ogni volume, di una "Tavola delle stampe in acciajo ed indicazione delle pagine a cui van collocate" che facilita il compito. Nel nostro esemplare, dunque, risultano mancanti cinque tavole, segnatamente quattro al quarto tomo (Galbiate e i monti di Lecco, il porto di Como, i Bagni di Bormio, la Strada della Spluga nella valle di San Giacomo) ed una al quinto (Golfo di La Spezia) in cui però compare una tavola in più (Castello di Torino). Nel complesso l'opera consta di 324 incisioni su acciaio fuori testo, molte delle quali con accostamento multiplo, per un totale di 473 tavole. Fu notoriamente mastodontico il lavoro cui si sottopose Louis Eustache Audot (1783-1870) nella stesura della presente opera, che nell'edizione francese fu pubblicata in un formato più grande. Personaggio eclettico, Audot fu geografo, editore, esperto di arte culinaria e agronomo. Assai dettagliato, come evidenziato dal sottotitolo, il lavoro di ricerca sulle fonti, e sontuoso l'apparato iconografico. > Olscki, "Choix", 1108, "Ouvrage monumental qui conservera toujours une grande valeur ".

        SUITE OF FOUR HIGHLY ACCOMPLISHED WATERCOLORS, PRODUCED BETWEEN 1829 AND 1834, WHICH SERVED AS THE MODELS FOR FOUR LITHOGRAPHS PUBLISHED IN CARL NEBEL'S VOYAGE PITTORESQUE ET ARCHÉOLOGIE, DANS LA PARTIE LA PLUS INTÉRESSANTE DU MEXIQUE].

      Mexico. [nd, but 1829-1834]. - Four watercolors on paper. Watercolors of various sizes, as indicated below; each mounted on card stock, archivally matted (19 x 23 inches) and protected with a mylar sheet. Contemporary pencil inscriptions in bottom right corners. A few extremely minor clean tears in a few corners repaired. Watercolors very clean, colors bright and fresh. The set in near fine condition. A marvellous suite of four highly accomplished watercolors which served as the models for four lithographs published in Carl Nebel's VOYAGE PITTORESQUE ET ARCHÉOLOGIE, DANS LA PARTIE LA PLUS INTÉRESSANTE DU MEXIQUE. The watercolors all depict native and mestizo inhabitants situated in dry landscapes with hills in the background. The images represent a variety of local types and occupations, including Indian women, men, and children; adult mestizos; coal miners; mule skinners; and fruit vendors. The costumes are portrayed with much attention to detail, particularly the embroidered clothing worn by the native women and the male laborers' costumes; and the foregrounds and background are finely rendered with light washes. A German architect and painter, Nebel travelled to Mexico in 1829 "to paint scenes of a country he knew from the writings of Humboldt, Antonio León y Gama, Bernal Díaz del Castillo, and Hernán Cortés. He remained in Mexico until 1834, visiting and painting the cities of Puebla, Zacatecas, Aguascalientes, Guadalajara, Veracruz, Jalapa, Mexico, and San Luis Potosí. He returned to Europe and in Paris prepared his memorable VOYAGE PITTORESQUE ET ARCHÉOLOGIE with its fifty plates" (Howgego). The university trained artist "was drawn there at first by an interest in the archaeological remnants of the Aztec empire, but became a visual chronicler of modern Mexico as well. Nebel was one of many European artists intrigued by the landscape and peoples of the former Spanish empire in the Americas, barred from view for centuries, but from the 1820s onward open to both travel and investment, and of particular interest to the French and English. His book combines a taste for the picturesque with a clear-eyed evaluation of the country and its assets" (Miles and Reese). Nebel's VOYAGE PITTORESQUE was first published in Paris in 1836 with fifty lithographic plates, twenty of which were issued in color. A Spanish translation of the work, utilizing the same plates, was published in Paris and Mexico three years later (but with nearly all the plates in the later edition handcolored or tinted). Of the twenty color lithographs in the 1836 edition, ten specifically portray local inhabitants of various classes; six of these are of natives or working- class mestizos. The present watercolors consists of four of these six images, including two of the three illustrations of Indians published in the VOYAGE. Comparison of these watercolors and the published images are instructive in regards to the lithographer's art and craft. The individuals in all of the lithographs are darker than in the original artwork, lending weight to the figures and providing both the natives and mestizos with darker skin than originally portrayed. Certain details, such as elements of costumes and architectural motifs, are highlighted or expanded in the published images, while other visual elements in the foreground and background of the lithographs are given less emphasis than in the original. Such changes between the original watercolors and the printed images highlight the technical and aesthetic concerns of the lithographer and publisher in creating reproduced images for the market. The four individual watercolors in this suite, with titles transcribed from the original pencil inscriptions and compared to the titles in the 1836 edition, are described as follow: 1) "Indios carboneros y la moradora de la vecinidad de Mexico." 11 x 15 inches. The lithograph of this image is entitled "Indios carboneros y la buradores de la vecin dad de Mexico," while the accompanying printed text reads: "Indios carboner

        Bewick's Swan [Plate XLVII]

      [Edinburgh 1834 - A beautiful print of a swan from John Selby's seminal bird book "Illustrations of British Ornithology." Prideaux John Selby was a versatile gentleman naturalist. Born on 23 July 1788 in Alnwick, Northumberland, he inherited Twizell House and its estate in 1804, and throughout his life did not neglect his duties as a landowner, magistrate, High Sheriff, and then Deputy Lieutenant of Northumberland. He married Lewis Tabitha Mitford, the daughter of Bertram Mitford of Mitford Castle, Northumberland, in 1810, and by 1817 had a happy marriage, three daughters, and a house that had become a sort of upmarket staging-post for naturalists heading North and South along the nearby Great North Road. Visitors were to include John James Audubon (who gave Selby and his brother-in-law Robert Mitford lessons in drawing), Sir William Jardine (one of Selby's closest friends and a collaborator on various later works), John Gould, William Yarrell, H.E.Strickland, to name but a few. Natural history and ornithology had been Selby's passions from youth, and Christine Jackson notes, in her excellent introduction to the Sotheby's catalogue of the sale of the Bradley Martin collection of Selby watercolours, that, besides "collecting and preserving birds, Selby had observed them in the field, making careful notes of their habitat and habits. At his leisure, he also sensitively colored drawings of them. With this accumulation of practical knowledge, specimens, and some drawings, Selby embarked in 1819 on an ambitious project to publish the most up-to-date, life-size illustrations of British birds. Since he had an incomplete pictorial record of his birds, many remained to be drawn while publication of the parts of the work proceeded. The aim was to issue each part comprising twelve plates at regular intervals of six months. The size of the paper chosen was elephant folio (27" x 21½") in order that most of the birds might be represented life-size. For each plate, Selby made watercolor paintings of the species." "Selby etched his drawings on copper plates and then either took or sent the plates to William Home Lizars in Edinburgh. Either Lizars or one of his workmen took a pull [proof impression] from Selby's plate and worked on any parts necessary to bring the plate to a very fine state of completion. Selby and Sir William Jardine both purchased their copper plates and etching ground from Pontifex of London, and their letters refer to the progress made in drawing and 'biting' or etching their plates. If they made a mistake or accidently over-etched a plate, they relied on Lizars to correct by burnishing to lighten it" (Jackson, Bird Etchings, pp.202-204). BM (NH) IV,pp.1896-1896; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990) p.141; cf. Nissen IVB 853; cf. Zimmer p.571. Hand coloured engraving, finished with gum arabic. Printed on wove Whatman paper. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        PROMESSI SPOSI; OR, THE BETROTHED LOVERS

      1834 - MANZONI, Alessandro. I PROMESSI SPOSI; OR, THE BETROTHED LOVERS. A Milanese story of the seventeenth century. As translated for The Metropolitan, from the Italian of Alessandro Manzoni, by G. W. Featherstonhaugh. Washington: Stereotyped and Published by Duff Green. 1834. The "Metropolitan Edition." Possibly the first American edition. (There were two American translations printed in 1834; the other was printed at New York by G. Dearborn.) 8vo.: 249 pp. Text printed in double columns. Contemporary binding; black morocco spine with blind-stamped decoration and gilt-stamped title and year, marbled paper boards. Pencil inscription on ffep. and a contemporary pencil ownership on first flyleaf. Text leaves are mostly clean and quite fresh, showing only some occasional light foxing, and having a faint, shallow dampstain at the top- edge and, for the final 25 ff., at the top fore-corner. The binding is worn at perimeters, especially at corners, and rubbed at surfaces. The top fore-corner of the upper board is missing a small patch of paper. Lower joint is tender and is missing a thin strip of leather (1 1/2 x 1/8") at the head. This is an early translation of Manzoni's panoramic love story set in Milan in the seventeenth century. It is his masterpiece which, upon publication (1825-27), elevated him to the front rank of literary fame. It is still regarded by many Italians as their greatest novel. This is an appealing copy whose condition is very good plus. (American Imprints 25502; Kunitz & Colby)

        Autograph Letter Signed 'Jomard' to Louis Leon Jacob, French Minister of the Navy and the Colonies, Regarding the Recently Published Report of Francois Leprieur's Voyage in the Interior of French Guiana].

      Paris 1834 - Paris, 23 October 1834. Folio (ca. 32x21 cm). 1 p. Brown ink on watermarked paper with letterhead of the "Société de Géographie, Commission Centrale". Legible text in French. Centrefold mark, otherwise a very good letter. In his letter to the current minister of French navy and colonies, Admiral Louis Leon Jacob (1768-1854), the author, French cartographer and archaeologist Edme Francois Jomard informs about the recent publication of the French Geographical Society: Francois Leprieur's report of his voyage in the interior of French Guiana in the early 1830s. Jomard notes that the report has been approved on the session of the Geographical Society on the 17th of October [1834], and in conformity with the Admiral's wishes, Jomard is sending him a copy of it. The publication he is talking about is most likely an offprint of Leprieur"s article "Voyage dans la Guyane centrale" (Bulletin de la Société de Géographie de Paris, 2e série, I, 1834, p. 201-229). "François Mathias René Leprieur (1799-1870) was a French pharmacist and naturalist. While being stationed in Senegambia in 1824-1829 he extensively travelled in the region; the results of his observations were published as "Florae Senegambiae tentamen" (1830-1833) by Perrottet, Guillemin and Richard. In 1830-1849 he was based in Cayenne, Guyane, where he attained the post of pharmacist first-class. He travelled along the Oyapock River to its source and collected a large amount of natural history specimens. From 1850 to 1858, he was assigned to the island of Martinique. Plants with the specific epithet of leprieurii are named in his honor, an example being Zanthoxylum leprieurii" (Wikipedia).

      London, 1834. Two volumes, octavo, with a folding map; a very good copy in original green cloth with paper labels on spines. First edition. Lang, a Presbyterian minister, arrived in the colony in 1823. He was possessed of enormous energy, and "pushed his way to power at once", as H.M. Green says, with " a great wave of popularity and dissension foaming at his bows and leaving a wide wake behind him". This is an attack on the emancipists, among others, by Wentworth's major rival, and is Lang's most important work. Although Lang shared with Wentworth the desire to encourage immigration and implement self-government, he in fact went further in wanting independence.

        As noites do barracão. Passadas pelos emigrados portuguez em Inglaterra, em verso alexandrino.

      Paris [i.e. Angra, in the Açores?], na officina de J.P. Aillaud [i.e. Joaquim José Soares?], 1834. - 36 pp. 16°, contemporary plain blue?grey wrappers (manuscript title and date on front cover) Occasional spotting, mostly light. Mostly unopened; on the whole in fine condition. Small rectangular paper ticket, white with blue border and perforated edges, with old ink manuscript inventory number, tipped on to upper outer corner of front cover. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION, rare, of this highly interesting verse collection. The probable authors - Joaquim Pinheiro de Chagas and Simão José da Luz Soriano - were both students at the University of Coimbra when the civil war between absolutists and liberals commenced in 1828. Both enlisted in the liberal @batalhão académico formed at Coimbra, but were compelled to flee first to Galicia and then to Plymouth, England, where they were interned under deplorable conditions. @As noites de barracão springs directly from their experiences, reflecting the bitter humiliation felt by the defeated liberals, their anger at their callous treatment while in English hands, and the realization that they were now exiles. Of the six satirical poems included in this volume, Innocêncio attributes the first four to Pinheiro de Chagas, and the last two (entitled @Noites avulsas) to Luz Soriano; Innocêncio also suggests that the character of the type and the typographical imperfections support the idea that this work was printed secretly at Angra in 1834. Indeed, both Pinheiro de Chagas and Luz Soriano spent time in Angra after leaving England, and the latter published two other verse collections in Angra in 1832.Pinheiro de Chagas (1809-1859), a native of Lamego, soon returned to Portugal, where he helped defeat the absolutists and later taught at the Colégio Militar. He was a noted poet and translator of Byron, Goldsmith, Gray and other English poets into Portuguese, and father of Manuel Pinheiro Chagas, one of Portugal's most distinguished nineteenth-century writers. Luz Soriano (1802-1891) also returned to Portugal, where he pursued a distinguished career as a government official and historian, publishing several important works on the civil war in which he had fought.In support of the Angra printing of the @Noites, Canto cites an advertisement in the Azorean @Iris da Terceira of 1838 that the @Noites were for sale by Joaquim José Soares in Angra. Moreover, we have been able to locate six copies in Portugal but none in France.---- Innocêncio VI, 301-2 and XII, 130.

        Suite of four highly accomplished watercolours: the original artwork by Nebel which served as the models for four lithographs published in his "Voyage Pittoresque et Archeologique dans la partie la plus interessante du Mexique"

      1834 - A marvellous suite of four highly-accomplished watercolours by Nebel, one of the most important illustrators working in Mexico during the first part of the 19th century.

Il souligne la passion de Louis XVI pour la navigation aerienne, mais il suggere aussi que Napoleon etait tres desireux d'essayer une invasion surprise de l'Angleterre par les airs. - Rare first edition (NUC notes a single copy) of this very early aeronautical fantasy, an impassioned plea for the aerostation as the basis for a world of harmony and perfection. This rather odd piece of aeronautical history is dedicated to the regeneration of interest in travelling by air, 'cet enfant du dix-huitieme siecle qui produirait en economie sociale, en morale, en politique, des resultats bien autrement merveilleux que ceux des chemins de fer'. M. Poujol sets the scene when he finds himself wandering around the Tivoli gardens on a particularly lovely day, pondering the wondrous future society of the air. It occurs to him that modern society is not devoting enough attention to the possibility of flight, an unnerving omission which he hopes to rectify with this account. As support, he takes time to point out that not only was the noted intellect Louis XVI a huge fan of the aeronaut, but he also suggests that Napoleon was very keen to try a surprise invasion of England by air.

        Waarnemingen omtrent de horzel-maskers, welke in de maag van het paard huisvesten.

      Amsterdam, C. G. Sulpke, 1834.. 4to. (2), 143, (1) pp. With 6 hand-coloured engraved plates (1 folding, 5 full-page) by D. Sluyter after H. van Oort. Contemporary stiff grey wrappers.. Rare separate issue of Numan's detailed and beautifully illustrated study of the larvae of the equine botfly (family Oestridae), an internal parasite of horses. Alexander Numan (1780-1852) discusses the different species of botfly found in the stomachs of horses, the way the eggs are transferred to the intestines, their growth and development, the effect on the health of the host animal, and the various ways they may be removed. The essay appeared both in the Nieuwe Verhandelingen der eerste klasse van het Koninklijk-Nederlandse Instituut van Wetenschappen, and in the present, much rarer separate issue, where only the plates refer to the journal. - Numan completed his medical studies at Groningen in 1804. He wrote a prize-winning essay on the Keil dysentery epidemic of 1810, which appeared in 1812. In the same year he was asked to translate a veterinary manual and later to write his own, which went through five editions from 1819 to 1856. When the first Dutch veterinary school opened at Utrecht in 1821, no suitable professor could be found in the practice, and the position went to Numan. He went on to write many excellent articles, the best known of which discusses cow pox (1831). - Wrappers slightly damaged at spine, but still very good. A fine copy of a rare and well-illustrated essay by a pioneering veterinary researcher. - KVK (1 copy). NCC (4 copies). Not in Garrison/M., Landwehr Coloured Plates, Nissen ZBI.

        Travels into Bokhara;

      London: John Murray,, 1834. being an Account of a Journey from India to Cabool, Tartary, and Persia; also a Narrative of a Voyage on the Indus, from the Sea to Lahore, with Presents from the King of Great Britain; performed under Orders of the Supreme Government of India, in the Years 1831,1832, and 1833. 3 volumes octavo (224 × 141 mm). Original boards, neatly rebacked to style with new paper labels. Stipple-engraved portrait frontispiece and a folding lithographic plate of the Buddhas of Bamyan to volume I; 2 engraved numismatic plates to volume II; engraved frontispiece view of Hyderabad and one other similar view, and two lithographed plates to volume III Boards just a little rubbed, the text largely clean, the plates, particularly the lithographic ones browned as usual, overall a very good wide-margined copy. First edition. Burnes sailed to Bombay to take up a cadetship in the Bombay Army, aged just 16. Within a year his grasp of Hindustani and Persian were such that he was made interpreter to the Bombay Grenadiers at Surat. In 1825 he became Persian interpreter, and thereafter quartermaster, to the Cutch field force, two years later transferring to Bombay as assistant quartermaster-general of the army, a year later becoming assistant to the British resident in Cutch. Burne's was the Great Game exponent par excellence; "Burnes excelled at political work. His linguistic ability combined with adventurousness, boundless self-confidence, and a certain diplomatic guile earmarked him for delicate political duties" (ODNB). In 1831,following his mission to deliver the gift of five dray horses from William IV to Ranjit Singh - and make a reconnaissance of the Indus - he reported to the Lord Bentinck at Simla. The governor-general, much impressed by the young officer, proposed "a much grander expedition across central Asia to Bokhara and beyond", designed to assess the extent of Russian incursions into Central Asia. In January 1832 Burnes set out from Ludhiana accompanied by Dr James Gerard, a Bengal army surgeon, and skilled surveyor in his own right; an Indian surveyor, Muhammad Ali; and a young munshi of Kashmiri descent, Mohan Lal. "The party travelled modestly, always in local dress, and variously represented themselves as Englishmen, Armenians, pilgrims, merchants—whatever the often hazardous circumstances seemed to require." They reached Bokhara in June; thence across the Turkoman desert to Mashhad, where Gerard, his precarious health undermined by the rigours of the journey left them, he died just a year later; on to the Caspian Sea, down to Tehran, and finally back by sea to Bombay. When Burnes returned to England with his report in 1833 he was greeted as a hero, he "received the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society, was elected a fellow of the Royal Society and honorary member of the Royal Asiatic Society, and enjoyed a flattering audience with William IV". Anticipating a sensation, the publisher John Murray "... was quick to acquire Burnes's account of his journey … It was rushed through the press so as to steal a march on Arthur Conolly's book, which appeared a few months later, and Moorcroft's long-delayed posthumous work … [It] brought to the reader for the first time the romance, mystery and excitement of Central Asia. It was to prove an immediate bestseller, 900 copies being sold on the first day." (Hopkirk, Great Game, p151). A very nice copy in the boards, carefully restored. Armorial bookplate of Charles Rickards, Manchester businessman and patron of Whistler and Watts.

        On Scheutz';s calculating machine", in The London, Edinburgh and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, Fourth Series, Vol. 12, No. 78, December 1856, pp. 225-6

      FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF RARE AND PARTICULARLY CURIOUS PAPER OFFERING DETAILED IMPROVEMENTS TO SCHEUTZ'S FULLY FUNCTIONAL MODEL OF BABBAGE'S DIFFERENCE ENGINE by one of Babbage's "most vigorous detractors" (Computer History Website). The credit of inventing the first computing machines goes to the two Stockholm Based scientists, George and Edvard Scheutz . "Inspired in 1834 by Babbage's work, Georg Scheutz (1785-1873) a Swedish printer, publisher, journalist, translator and inventor, set about building a difference engine of his own. At first, he speculated that just one of Babbage's engines 'would suffice the needs of the whole world'" (ibid). "Each of its long shafts holds disks, and each disk has wheels with ten teeth that correspond to marks in the disks. A scientist could set the disks with known figures, odd or even, turn a crank, and by reading down on each shaft, find the result of a calculation. "The Scheutzes had no interest in pleasing design. Their device worked well, though, for they had followed to practical completion the concepts of one of the 19th century's most brilliant minds. Inventor and philosopher, Babbage produced a prototype of the original Difference Engine as early as 1822, then kept adding refinements without ever quite finishing it. He enthusiastically endorsed the work of his friends Georg and Edvard Scheutz. But during the years it took them to complete their machine, the inventor's mind was groping toward a mechanical device that would go far beyond calculation. It would actually store the data that it produced, then reuse the information to add more. Babbage described this process as 'the engine eating its own tail' (Park, "What a difference the Difference Engine made: from Charles Babbage's calculator emerged today's computer," Smithsonian Magazine, Feb. 1996). During this period George Airy was Astronomer Royal from 1835-1881 and a highly influential advisor to the government whose opinions greatly impacted the fate of Babbage's engine; this makes it all the more curious that in this paper he offered suggestion to improving the Scheutze model of Babbage's engine. "The post of Astronomer Royal was the highest office in the civil science in England and carried with it responsibility for the Royal Observatory at Greenwich. Though not part of his official duties, Airy, through diligence and distinguished service, became de facto science adviser to the British Government and his views had a defining influence on the fate of Babbage's engines. In 1842 he advised the Treasury that the engines were 'useless' and that Babbage's project should be abandoned. The Government axed the project shortly after. Airy was not alone in his opposition. Astronomers in Sweden and France also rejected the utility of the machines. "Airy's opposition to the utility of the engines was reasoned and credible but confined to their potential use to practical tabulation, and mainly to practices at the Greenwich Observatory. He seemed immune to the broader mathematical potential of the engines despite his mathematical brilliance at university. Airy is often portrayed as a dull and unimaginative bureaucrat, influential but uninspired. Others see him as the voice of reason. In a published attack in 1851 Babbage accused Airy of rejecting the engines as part of a personal vendetta against him. Airy brushed off the intemperate lunge. In Babbage and Airy we have a visionary and a pragmatist. In the case of the engines, the pragmatist prevailed" (Computer History Website). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor and Francis., Volume 12., No. 78. September 1856. 4to (9 x 5.5 inches; 225 x 140mm). Complete. A fine unopened copy in the original printed wrappers.
