        A Narrative of the Supposed Inhuman Murder of an Infant, By Its...

      1834. London, 1834. 10" x 7-1/2" Broadside Account of an Infanticide in London [Broadside]. [Infanticide]. [Chalice, Harriet]. 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).

      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.

        o. T. [Gebirgsbach]. Oel auf Leinwand.

      76 x 103 cm, Tadellos, gerahmt Unten rechts monogrammiert T S 64. Traugott Schieß (1834 St. Gallen - 1869 München). Landschaftsmaler. Gebirgsveduten und Ideallandschaften. Tätig in München und in der SchweizTraugott Schiess wurde als Sohn des Pfarrers Johann Heinrich Schiess in St. Gallen geboren. Er verbrachte seine Kindheit und Jugend zum grössten Teil in Grabs in einem vom väterlichen Pietismus geprägten Umfeld. Nach Abschluss des Schulbesuchs liess er sich in St. Gallen zum Lithografen ausbilden. 1851 folgte er seinem Bruder Heinrich, dem späteren Professor für Augenheilkunde, nach Basel und wurde Schüler des Landschaftsmalers und Aquarellisten Friedrich Horner. 1854 übersiedelte Schiess nach München, wo ihn Johann Gottfried Steffan als Schüler in sein Atelier aufnahm. Daneben besuchte er Abendkurse an der Akademie und übte sich bei Friedrich Voltz in der Tiermalerei.Ab 1855 unternahmen Schiess und Steffan mit Freunden Studienreisen in die bayrischen Alpen und in die Schweiz. 1857 und in den folgenden Jahren verbrachten die beiden den Sommer gemeinsam mit andern Malern auf der Richisau im Klöntal. Dort lernte Schiess Rudolf Koller kennen, der zu seinem Vorbild wurde und bei dem er in der Folge zweimal für kurze Zeit seine Studien in der Tiermalerei fortsetzte. 1858-59 teilte er in München die Wohnung mit Jost Schiffmann, danach mit Theodor Schütz. In diese Zeit fallen Begegnungen mit Franz von Lenbach und Arnold Böcklin, der in Steffans Atelier arbeitete. 1862 heiratete er Emilie Steffan, die älteste Tochter seines Lehrers. Schon immer kränklich, verschlechterte sich sein Gesundheitszustand 1868 merklich. Ein Jahr später starb er an einer Lungenentzündung, von der er sich in Davos vergeblich Heilung erhofft hatte.Obwohl die Schaffenszeit von Traugott Schiess nur gerade gut 15 Jahre umfasst, lässt sich sein Werk in verschiedene Phasen einteilen. Das Frühwerk besteht aus kleinmeisterlichen Aquarellen biedermeierlicher Prägung, grossenteils Kopien nach deutschen Romantikern, die den Einfluss von Horner verraten. In München wandte sich Schiess der Ölmalerei zu, wobei seine ersten Werke Kopien nach Steffan und Voltz sind. Innerhalb von drei Jahren übernahm Schiess die Technik und die Naturauffassung von Steffan vollständig, so dass es schwierig ist, unsignierte Werke der späten fünfziger Jahre dem einen oder andern zuzuschreiben. In diese Zeit fallen vor allem kleinere Gebirgsansichten, die von einer sicheren Pinselführung und einem feinen Farbsinn zeugen. Obwohl er sich bei Koller in den folgenden Jahren intensiv dem Studium der Tiere widmete, dienten ihm diese jedoch selten als eigentliches Sujet, sondern vielmehr als Staffage für seine Landschaften. Kollers Einfluss macht sich auch in der Abwendung von Steffans disziplinierter Pinselführung und in der Hinwendung zu einem freieren Duktus bemerkbar. Hauptmotive der Zeit um 1860 sind Bergbäche, Wasserfälle, kleine Ausschnitte aus Gebirgslandschaften und Detailstudien, die sich durch eine grosse Naturtreue in der Farbwahl auszeichnen.Etwa ab 1863 begann Schiess ein Schwergewicht auf Ideallandschaften mit dramatischer Wolkenstimmung zu legen. Farblich und technisch orientierte er sich an den Malern von Barbizon. Unklar ist, ob die Schwere dieser Stimmungsbilder auf Böcklins Einfluss zurückgeht. Neben bekannten Malern wie Eduard Schleich dem Älteren kann Schiess sowohl zu den ersten Rezipienten des Paysage intime in München und der Deutschschweiz als auch zu den Vorläufern des typischen Münchner Naturlyrismus der Jahrhundertwende gerechnet werden. Die zahlreichen in Deutschland und der Schweiz, nach England und Amerika verkauften Bilder zeugen von seiner Beliebtheit, und die Präsenz seiner Werke an der Berliner Jahrhundertausstellung von 1906 zeigt, dass man ihm damals einen gewissen Stellenwert innerhalb der deutschen Kunstgeschichte zubilligte.Werke: Öffentliche Kunstsammlung Basel Kunstmuseum St. Gallen Schweinfurt (D), Sammlung Georg Schäfer Kunsthaus Zürich.

        An account of the transactions of His Majesty's mission to the court of Persia in the years 1807-11; To which is appended, a brief history of the Wahauby. [ In 2 Volumes ]

      London: James Bohn, 1834. ''The first political and commercial treaty between Great Britain and Persia was concluded in 1801; when the East India Company sent John Malcolm to the Court of Fath Ali Shah. Persia undertook to attack the Afghans if they were to move against India, while the British undertook to come to the defence of Persia if they were attacked by either the Afghans or the French. When the Russians intensified their attacks on the Caucasian Provinces in 1803 annexing large territories, Fath Ali Shah appealed to the British for help, but was refused on the ground that Russia was not included in the Treaty. The Persians thus turned to the French and concluded the Treaty of Finkenstein in 1807. It was against this background that Harford Jones, who was the chief resident at Basra for the East India Company, was sent to Persia by the Foreign Office in 1809... The French who had now entered into a treaty with Russia (the Treaty of Tilsit in 1807) had lost interest in Persia and removed their political and military missions. Thus the British were able to conclude another treaty with Persia (the Treaty of Friendship and Alliance, also called the Treaty of Tehran) which bound Britain to assist Persia in case any European nation invaded her (even if Britain had a treaty with that nation). This treaty was not honoured by the British after the first Persian-Russian War. There were two later revisions to the Treaty: 17 March 1812 and 25 November 1814'' (Ghani). Volume 2 is devoted exclusively to the Wahabis, tracing their history from the mid-eighteenth century to their defeat by Egyptian Ottoman forces at the site of the Wahabi capital, Daryah (Dereyah), in 1818.A nice 2 volume first edition set. Now bound in Half Leather, with leather corner pieces, 5 raised bands and gilt titles. Please not the Collation of this set.

        On a general Method in Dynamics; by which the Study of the Motions of all free Systems of attracting or repelling Points is reduced to the Search and Differentiation of one central Relation, or characteristic Function" WITH "Second Essay on a general Method in Dynamics" Parts I and II Extracted from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1834 and 1835

      FIRST EDITIONS OF HAMILTON'S FAMOUS TWO 'ESSAYS' ON DYNAMICS, SEMINAL WORKS IN WHICH HE DEVELOPS THE WHOLE OF THEORETICAL DYNAMICS BY THE AID OF ONE CENTRAL FUNCTION, HIS 'CHARACTERISTIC' (or 'principal') FUNCTION. "The analogies Hamilton establishes in these papers between geometrical optics and mechanics would go on to play a fundamental role in all of modern physics and provide the basis of Schrodinger's formulation of wave mechanics" (Sophia Rare Books). In the first essay, Hamilton "defines his characteristic function by analogy with his researches in optics, and develops its chief properties for a general system of points in any system of coordinates. The remainder of the paper is devoted to methods of approximation with a view to applying them to perturbations of astronomical bodies. At the end he introduces another function, the [characteristic or] principal function, which he develops in the second essay. [In the second essay] Hamilton develops the properties of the principal function in much the same way as in the previous Essay, but here established for the first time his well-known equations of motion. He applies his method to a case of planetary motion, using a system of canonical elements" (Introduction, The Mathematical Paper of Sir William Rowan Hamilton, xiii). Hamilton then argues that the "tool of the characteristic function could also be applied to reformulate the fundamental laws of dynamics; thus the actual motion of mass point in a field of forces, e.g., is found to be governed by equations that are the analogues of those determining the propagation of the rays of light. Hamilton's optical-mechanical analogy, not only provided a new and more powerful formulation of classical mechanics but also, came to form the foundation of the Schrödinger scheme of quantum mechanics, e.g., wave mechanics. "Hamilton introduced the methods of geometrical optics into mechanics and obtained an equation similar to the iconal equation and now known as the Hamilton-Jacobi differential equation. In it the index of refraction is replaced, essentially, by the potential energy and mass of the mechanical particle. In Hamilton's work Schrödinger thus found an analogy between mechanics and geometrical optics. And, since geometrical optics 'is only a gross approximation for light,' he conjectured that the same cause was responsible for the failure of classical mechanics 'in the case of very small orbital dimensions and very strong orbital curvature'"(Sophia Rare Books).

        Fragments d'un memoire sur le temps durant lequel lesjeunes animaux peuvent être, sans danger, privés de la respiration, soit à l'époque de l'accouchement, lorsqu'ils n'ont point encore respiré, soit à différents âges après leur naissance.

      Paris 1834 - In-4° relié demi-chagrin grenat de l'époque, 160 pages. Julien Jean César Legallois (1770-1814), né à Cherneix (Bretagne), orphelin à l'âge de 13 ans, commença ses études à Caen, puis obtint une place d'élève salarié à l'école de médecine de Paris. Il suivit les leçons de Corvisart et de Desault. Il fut nommé médecin de Bicêtre. Il fut l'un des premiers physiologistes à utiliser la méthode expérimentale et eut une influence considérable sur le développement de la physiologie expérimentale. cf. Garrison & Morton, 1118 et 928 (éditions originales de la thèse et du principal ouvrage de l'auteur) ; Bedford, 252 (Expériences sur le principe de la vie, 1812) ; Clarke & Jacyna, Nineteenth-century origins of neuroscientific concepts, pp. 107-109, 245-247, 336-337 - - - - Legallois war der Sohn des bretonischen Bauern César Le Gallois (ca. 1743-1784) und seiner Frau Julienne Anne Thérèse Bouassier (1739-1771).[1] Die junge Mutter starb früh, dennoch ermöglichte ihm sein Vater eine gute Ausbildung. Als auch der Vater starb, war Legallois dreizehn Jahre alt und Student am Collège de Dol. Durch ein bescheidenes Erbe konnte er seine Ausbildung weiterführen. Seine Interessen waren durchaus vielseitig, so gewann er den ersten Preis in der Rhetorik am Collège de Dol. Nach dem Volksaufstand vom 2. Juni 1793, la Grande Terreur war er Anhänger der Fédéralistes. Diese Sympathien bedrohten zeitweise sein Leben. Legallois begann sein Medizinstudium in Caen und setzte es in Paris fort. Seine Karriere wurde jedoch mehr als einmal durch Krankheit unterbrochen. Seinen Abschluss in der Medizin erlangte er 1801 an der École de Médecine de Paris. Während der Vorbereitung zu seiner Dissertation, erkannte er die Bedeutung der experimentellen Forschung. Aus diesem Grunde widmete er sich später mit großem Elan der physiologischen Forschung. Das Thema seiner Dissertation lautete Le sang est-il identique dans tous les vaisseaux qu'il parcourt?, vorgelegt an der École de Médecine de Paris. - - - - - - First Edition. For Legallois, see D.S.B. 8: 132-35, where this work is mentioned but not discussed. The contents are: Fragment d'un mémoire sur le temps durant lequel les jeunes animaux peuvent être, sans danger, privés de la respiration, soit à l'époque de l'accouchement, lorsqu'ils n'ont point encore respire, soit à différents âges après leur naissance.

        Ueber die Bestimmung der Richtung der durch elektrodynamische Vertheilung erregten galvanischen Ströme" in Annalen der Physik und Chemie, s. 2, Bd. 31, 1834

      Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1834 BOUND FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST APPEARANCE & FORMULATION OF LENZ'S 1833 LAW, stating that "The direction of current induced in a conductor by a changing magnetic field due to Faraday's law of induction will be such that it will create a field that opposes the change that produced it" (Lenz). Obeying both Newton's third law of motion and the conservation of energy, Lenz's law explains the physical meaning of the negative sign in Faraday's law. It was "the first explanation of the choice of sign in Faraday's law of induction and served as the basis for Helmholtz's proof of the law of conservation of energy for electromagnetic phenomena" (History of Physics: The Wenner Collection). At the beginning of the nineteenth century scientists were beginning to understand electricity and magnetism, but did not understand the relationships between the two. In this paper, Russian physicist Heinrich Friedrich Emil Lenz (1804-1865) took one of the first steps in filling in that gap by formulating Lenz's Law. Lenz was puzzled by the effects of magnets when they were pushed into coils of wire as they produced an electric current. Repeating the work of James Faraday, he observed that when a electrical current is generated by a changing magnetic field, the magnetic field generated by that electrical current opposes the magnetic field that generated the current. Lenz's study "explains why the direction of the induced electromotive force (EMF) and induced current resulting from electromagnetic induction is the opposite direction to the change in flux (i.e., opposes the change in flux)" (ibid). His law is a manifestation of the conservation of energy. The induced EMF produces a current that opposes the change in flux, because a change in flux means a change in energy. Energy can enter or leave, but not instantaneously. Lenz' law is a consequence. This result is due to the law of conservation of energy. Lenz's results were copiously documented so that they could be easily repeated and his quantitative results were more thorough than the qualitative work that had been done previous to him. CONDITION & DETAILS: Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth. Complete bound volume. 8vo.[x], 678 pages, [2]. Four fold-out plates.

        Polynesian Researches During a Residence of Nearly Eight Years in the Society and Sandwich Islands. 4-vol. set (Complete)

      Fisher, Son, & Jackson, London 1834 - 12mo. XVI, 414, 438, 407, 471pp. 3/4 crushed morocco over decorative cloth. Frontispiece portrait of Pomare. Engraved half-title page in each volume. Fascinating narrative of the author's journey in Polynesia where he spent a number of years, endeavoring to promote the knowledge of Christianity among the natives. While engaged in this pursuit, Ellis regarded it as perfectly consistent with his office, and compatible with its duties, to collect information on various subjects relative to the country and its inhabitants. Although circumscribed in geographical extent, and comparatively insignificant in amount of population, the Society and Sandwich Islands have been regarded with unusual interest ever since their discovery. The descriptions given to the public, of the loveliness of their general appearance and the peculiar character and engaging manners of their inhabitants, have excited a strong desire to obtain additional information relative to the varied natural phenomena of the Islands themselves, the early history; the moral, intellectual, and physical character of the people, and the nature of their ancient institutions. This study is profusely illustrated with 1 folding chart, 2 folding maps, and numerous wood and steel engravings. Some age-wear on binding with spines and joints heavily rubbed, with abrasion on morocco. Closed tears on joints, but boards holding firmly. Previous owners' bookplates on inside of front boards, free front endpapers and rear endpapers. The folding chart is a facsimile of the original one, which was missing in this work.

        Vom Kriege. Hinterlassenes Werk. 3 Bände. (= Hinterlassene Werke des Generals Carl von Clausewitz über Krieg und Kriegführung, Bde. 1-3).

      Berlin, Ferdinand Dümmler, 1832-1834. - Erstausgabe. - „Dieses Werk mit seinen tausend Seiten nimmt unter den militärischen Schriften aller Zeiten und Völker einen einzigartigen Platz ein. Obwohl in ihm die Erkenntnisse aus den Kriegen Napoleons und denen der Französischen Revolution verwertet wurden, ist es doch weniger ein Handbuch für Strategie und Taktik als eine umfassende Untersuchung über die Grundprinzipien des Krieges. Der Krieg, so behauptete Clausewitz, müsse immer als politisches Instrument betrachtet werden; denn, so lautet sein berühmtester Aphorismus: ‚Krieg ist die fortgesetzte Staatspolitik mit anderen Mitteln‘. Er weist die Ansicht vom schädlichen Einfluß der Politik auf die Kriegsführung zurück, da Vor- oder Nachteile des Einflusses ganz bei der Politik lägen. Ist die Politik gut, so kann sie sich auf die Kriegsführung nur vorteilhaft auswirken: die Siege der Französischen Revolution über zwanzig Jahre hinweg ergaben sich hauptsächlich aus der fehlerhaften Politik der gegnerischen Regierungen. Seine Grundkonzeption, daß militärische Entscheidungen politischen Erwägungen immer untergeordnet sein müssen, unterstützt er durch seine nachdrückliche Betonung von Moral und Selbstzucht als den entscheidenden Faktoren im Kriege [.] Nachdem er als Generalstabschef von Gneisenau wie dieser im polnischen Feldzug an der Cholera gestorben war, wurde das Buch von seiner Frau als Kernstück seiner ‚Hinterlassenen Werke über Krieg und Kriegführung’ [.] veröffentlicht.
