Story's Conflict of Laws, the first systematic treatise on the subject, is one of his greatest and most influential works.

Expanding on this latter point Marvin quotes "a late English writer" who says that "No work on international jurisprudence merited, nor received, greater praise from the jurists of Europe. It impressed English lawyers with the highest respect for [Story's] extensive learning.": Legal Bibliography 471. Warren, A History of the American Bar 545.

        Algebra ili vychislenie konechnykh (i.e. English: "Algebra, or Calculus of Finites").

      Kazan, Universitetskaia tipografiia, 1834. 8vo. In contemporary full brown embossed cloth with four raised bands. Black leather title-label with gilt lettering to spine. Spine with gilt ornamentation. Ex-libris (A. A. Sidorov) pasted on to pasted down front end-paper. Wear to capitals and back hindge loose, however, firmly attached to book block. Last 10 leaves with discretly reinforced in margin. A fine and clean copy. (2), (I)-X, (5)-528, (2) pp. [lacking 1 blank beween p. X and p. (5)]. The exceedingly rare first edition of Lobachevsky's landmark work on algebra, constituting the very first Russian textbook on number theory in which he reiterated all basic notions of calculus by means of finite algorithms only. Using a synthesis of geometrical and analytical systems he developed a fundamentally new approach to solving equations: the approximation of the roots of algebraic equations, computing the roots of a polynomial by squaring them repeatedly, a method suggested by Newton and in 1781 touched on by Euler. It is the only substantial book published by Lobachevsky, the founder of non-euclidian geometry.The majority of Lobachevsky's works on non-Euclidean geometry and other mathematical and scientific fields were confined primarily to journals and small pamphlets. This is the only comprehensive book to appear in his life-time, and shows his radical approach to solving equations using a synthesis of geometrical and analytical systems. Belgian G. P. Dandelin and Swiss C. H. Graeffe independently discovered the same method of squaring roots and it is often referred to as the Dandelin-Gräffe method. It was, however, proved by Alston Householder in 1959 that Lobachevskii came up with the solution first: Although Lobachevskii's work bear the date 1834 it was already in the hands of the censors in 1832, (Householder: Dandelin, Lobacevskii, or Graeffe?) and most of it had been composed as early as 1825, thus Lobachevsky preceeded Dandelin and Gräffe by a several years. OCLC lists only one copy, at Harvard. We have been able to locate two further copies at the National Library of Russia and Russian State Library.

        Finden's Illustrations of the Life and Works of Lord Byron. With original and selected information on the subjects of the engravings by W. Brockedon

      London: John Murray, 1833-1834. A beautiful overlap of literature and travel description, being a tour through Mediterranean and Continental sites of interest in the life and tales of Lord Byron. Brief biographical descriptions are scattered throughout. Edward Francis Finden's masterful series of steel engravings from the works of J.M.W. Turner, William Westall and other leading landscape and portrait artists of the day capture the dreamy and romantic qualities of Byron's poetry. Scarce first edition. Three volumes, large octavo, contemporary half morocco with gilt panelled spines, marbled boards; engraved title page of one volume is frayed along the fore-edge, occasional mild foxing and offsetting, boards rubbed but a handsome near-fine set nonetheless.

        A History of Egyptian Mummies, and an Account of the Worship and Embalming of the Sacred Animals by the Egyptians; with Remarks of the Funeral Ceremonies of Different Nations, and Observations on the Mummies of the Canary Islands, of the Ancient Peruvians, Burman Priests etc.

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1834. FIRST EDITION. Quarto, pp.xxii, 264 [2]. With a hand-coloured frontispiece illustration of a mummy, and 12 plates at the rear of the volume, including two further coloured plates. In original grey paper-covered boards with original cream paper title label to upper board. Recently re-backed to style with textured green cloth and a cream paper title label to spine.Some wear to fore-edges; very good indeed. Pettigrew was a London surgeon who became increasingly interested in Mummification during the 1830's, evetually giving up medicine altogether in 1854 in order to concentrate on his antiquarian interests. He states in the introduction that he had not come across a comprehensive modern book on the subject in any language, and therefore wrote one himself based on his own experience of dissecting various mummies, including one particularly pristine exampe from Thebes, shown as the frontispiece. His work remains a cornerstone of the subject in English.

CASILEAR.| ENTERED ACCORDING TO THE ACT OF CONGRESS FOR THE YEAR 1834 BY GEORGE P. MORRIS IN THE CLERK'S OFFICE OF THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE SOUTHERN DISTRICT OF NEW YORK.

      [New York: 1834 - Broadside, 9" x 13", printed on heavy stock. Black and white steel engravings featuring lifelike portraits of George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, James Madison, James Monroe, John Quincy Adams, and Andrew Jackson. The portraits surround a pier-table with a large mirror behind it, reflecting a statue of the Goddess of Liberty, and surmounted by the American Eagle with banners. The small steel engravings are by J.W. Casilear; they are placed upon a background designed by Robert W. Weir which contains fine perpendicular lines and a damasque pattern. Light age toning, minor dusting, a few very small spots of foxing. One small archival verso repair to small closed edge tear. Very Good. Robert Walter Weir [1803-1889], a New York native, devoted himself to painting at an early age. He joined the staff of the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1834 as a teacher of drawing, and remained on its faculty until 1876. John William Casilear [1811-1893], of New York City, began his career in the 1820s working under engraver Peter Marshall. Although he worked as an engraver through the 1850s, he is most famous for his landscape paintings. His work is displayed at several of the most prestigious museums in the country, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art and the National Gallery of Art.

        THE DOWNFALL OF BABYLON, OR, THE TRIUMPH OF TRUTH OVER POPERY.

      Henry Dana Ward 1834 - Weekly, 4-page periodical. Each page approximately 10" x 13" with 3 columns of text. Masthead for most issues includes a woodcut illustration depicting the destruction of the Vatican and Rome by storm and earthquake. Contemporary limp, heavy paper wrappers, stitched. Samuel Smith was a disgruntled Roman Catholic priest, who left the church and became a Protestant minister. He went on to edit an anti-Catholic weekly, entitled The Downfall of Babylon, which was distributed in New York City and Philadelphia during the 1830's. The periodical included such articles as "Narrative of the Captivity and Sufferings of An American Among the Roman Priests of Cuba" and "On the Romish Hierarchy. " These 42 issues from 1834-35 represent nearly a full year of publication for this very scarce anti-Catholic periodical. Dampstains and corners dog-eared. Text and illustrations fully intact. Several issues have contemporary owner's signature on first page. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

A Narrative of the Supposed Inhuman Murder of an Infant, by Its Mother! With Full Particulars of Her Confession. [London]: G. Smeeton, Printer, 74, Tooley Street, [c.1834]. 10" x 7-1/2" broadside. Single-column text below headline. Moderate toning, some edgewear and a few tiny chips, a few creases to corners. $650. * This broadside offers an account in two parts. The first part, "extracted from the Weekly Dispatch, Sept. 7, 1834," is an account of the discovery of the baby's body prior to the coroner's inquest. The second part, from the Morning Advertiser, September 9, 1834, records the conclusions of the inquest. The defendant, Harriet Chalice, a household servant, was declared guilty of concealing the birth of a child, who was stillborn. Having hid her pregnancy, she delivered her baby herself, then threw the baby out of a window. Chalice's fate is unknown; the broadside says she "became exceedingly ill" after disposing of her baby and "sunk into exhaustion...without the least hope of recovery." OCLC locates 1 copy (Harvard Law School).

        Qur’an: Corani textus arabicus

      Leipzig.,1834 - First Flugel Edition. Text printed in black within red borders, some decorative. Attractive contemporary binding of quarter red morocco. Flugel’s Koran summarized all previous efforts of European Orientalists and took an important step in the presentation of the original Arabic text of the Qur’an to the West. The first edition of Flügel’s work included a kind of introductory notes, the Arabic text and subsequent index of the suras. The editor explains that he also used the most authoritative tafsirs. The font used for the Qur’an is really clear and easy to read; the vowels are printed with great accuracy. Undoubtedly, Flügel’s work is the best publication of the Arabic Qur’an printed in the West since the sixteenth century. This text, generally vocalized in accordance with the reading of hafs‘an ‘A�sim, has been really suitable for the translation of the meanings of the Qur’ān and for use in academic and religious works.

      1834 - [4]-319 pp. Paris, Mme Huzard, 1834, in-8, [4]-319 pp, demi-veau marron, dos lisse orné, 2 planches dépliantes lithographiées par Thierry frères, figurant des maisons d'aliénés. 5 tableaux dépliants des "résumés synoptiques des réponses faites par MM. les préfets aux 15 questions présentées par la circulaire (.) concernant les aliénés". Première édition. Après avoir quitté l'hospice de la Salpêtrière et avant de s'occuper du service des aliénés de Bicêtre, Guillaume Ferrus (1784-1861) effectua un voyage en Angleterre pour y visiter les établissements destinés aux aliénés. Il compare, dans cet ouvrage, leur fonctionnement avec celui des maisons françaises afin d'établir un programme de réformes dans le service qu'il s'apprête à diriger. Il dénonce l'insalubrité de beaucoup de loges, le manque de place qui conduit à l'incarcération dans les prisons, le mélange de pathologies différentes, etc. Dos refait avec réemploi des anciens plats, petites déchirures aux planches sans manque.

        Spécies Général et Iconographie des Coquilles Vivantes, comprenant la collection du Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle de Paris, la collection Lamarck, celle du Prince Masséna et les découvertes récent des Voyageurs.

      Paris, Rousseau/ Baillière, (1834-1880). 11 volumes (bound in 12). Royal-8vo (240 x 160mm). With 902 fine handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary publisher's cloth, spines with gilt lines and lettering. A fine copy of one of the most beautiful shell books ever made, illustrated with handcoloured engravings. The set belonged to the famous Spanish conchologist J. Hidalgo, with some pencil annotations in the text and separate inserted handwritten lists in some of the volumes. Kiener made use of the famous Delessert collection and that of the Natural History Museum of Paris, together the largest and most varied fund of conchological material on the continent. "He soon put it to good use; and in 1834 he published the first part of his 'Spécies ...' This exquisitely illustrated iconography, started before the Sowerbys and Reeve began to issue theirs, appeared at intervals up to 1879, when eleven volumes had been completed. All devoted to the illustration of marine gastopods with the exception of the tenth volume, which includes a monograph on the bivalve genus Thracia. The eleventh volume is the work of Paul Fischer. All the illustrations are by celebrated French engravers and artists of the day." (Dance. Hist. of Shell Collecting p. 137). This beautifully illustrated iconography on shells is still a valuable work of reference because of the new species described in it. The work is complete with 902 handcoloured plates as indicated in the last volume, where the publisher 'Ballière' informs the reader that the work consists of 165 parts with a total of 902 plates. Nissen, however, calls for a 20bis plate in the Cypraea section which, indeed, some copies have. Most likely only the early issues have this 'bis' plate, which was probably replaced by a corrected plate 20 in later issues. In the text this 'bis' plate is not mentionned. The plates of the present set are very fine and clean, however, there is foxing to the text.//Nissen ZBI, 2183; B.M.(Nat. Hist.)II, 978.
