        De la Democratie en Amerique

      Four volumes. Near contemporary quarter blue morocco. Folding map after Tocqueville by Bernard. Some browning and foxing. An excellent set. FIRST EDITIONS. Famed Harvard constitutional scholar Harvey Mansfield called Democracy in America "at once the best book ever written on democracy and the best book ever written on America." The most influential commentary on America in the nineteenth century, Democracy in America was based on Tocqueville's travels in the United States in 1831 and 1832. Tocqueville came to America to study the American prison system on behalf of the French government. After completing his official duties in the east, he toured the West and the South, visiting Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisiana, Alabama, the Carolinas, Virginia, and Washington, D. C. The book resulting from these investigations is generally considered the 19th century's most insightful commentary on the development of our unique American culture and political system. Tocqueville declared, "Democratic nations care but little for what has been, but they are haunted by visions of what will be; in this direction their unbounded imagination grows and dilates beyond all measure ... Democracy, which shuts the past against the poet, opens the future before him." Fewer than 500 copies of the first part were published. The second part (1840) was issued concurrently with the eighth edition of the first part, helping to explain why quality matched sets are so difficult to obtain today. The book was an immediate success, and more than fifty editions were published in French and English in the nineteenth century. For nearly two centuries it has provoked endless discussion and been an inspiration for countless commentaries on American democracy. Finely bound matched sets of the first edition are difficult to locate.

        Théorie mathématique de la chaleur. [relié à la suite : Mémoire et notes formant un supplément

      Bachelier, Paris 1835 - Plein veau vert de l'époque, médaillon doré au centre des plats. Deux parties reliées en un volume in quarto (257x194 mm), (6)-352 pages et une planche dépliante / (4)-72 pages Reliure légèrement frottée, dos passé. Quelques rousseurs sans gravité Rare édition originale bien complète du supplément. Dans cet ouvrage, Poisson formule les équations pour la distribution de la chaleur dans les corps, en particulier l’équation de la chaleur (formule 8, p. 92) avec une conductibilité variable en fonction de la température. L’«équation de la chaleur», trouvée par Fourier, apparaît alors comme un cas particulier de cette équation générale. À la page 98 on lit, pour la première fois, le mot de «conductibilité ». Bibliotheca Mechanica [pp. 260/261 : "This is the first edition of an important work in which Poission formulates equations for the distribution of heat in bodies. As opposed to Fourier, who maintained in his 'Mémoire analytique de la chaleur' that the conductibility of heat was contained in the motion of flux, Poisson showed that it must be derived from an absorptive coefficient restoring the neglected functionall dimension. Following his preliminary notes, Poisson devotes chapters to the laws of radiating heat, laws of cooling for bodies which have the same temperature at all points, the movement of heat in the interior of solid bodies or liquids, movement of heat to the surface of a body of any form, digression on the integrales of equations with partial differences, and a digression on the manner of expressing arbitrary functions by series of periodic quantities followed by a continuation of the same digression. Additional chapters are devoted to the distribution of heat in a bar whose transversal dimensions are very small, distribution of heat in spherical bodies and distribution of heat in various bodies, especially in a homogenous sphere originally warned in any manner, and the movement of heat in the interior and at the surface of the earth. He concludes with a series of three notes, the first relative to the equation of movement for heat at the interior of bodies, the second on molecular radiation, and the third relating to section 152 of the text. First separate appearance of the supplement which consists of a memoir read to the Academy of Science, to which have been joined some notes developing certain points in the memoir, principally relating to the temperatures of the globe and of space at different epochs"] ___________________________________________________________________________________ ______________________________ENGLISH_DESCRIPTION______________________________ ___________________________________________________________________________________ Contemporary full green calf, gilt centerpiece.

        [Autograph Manuscript] British Troops in America: Colonel Napier's Speech at Bath

      [London], 1835. Good. Separated at folds, edge worn and torn, a few chips, one affecting a few words at the end of about a dozen lines of text, light soiling.. 6 pp. with integral address. Manuscript with numerous corrections and additions concerning the failure of the British military in the War of 1812. In late 1835 then Colonel William Francis Patrick Napier (1785-1860) member of the British Army and a military historian, gave speech at Bath which the Sunday Times reported, claiming he had criticized the British soldiers in the War of 1812 as failing because they "stood as patriots and freemen, on less firm and less elevated ground than the Americans themselves" which John Mitchell notes at the very beginning of this article published in the January 1836 issue of "United Service Journal and Naval and Military Service Magazine" (pp. 84-92). Defending the soldiers, Mitchell goes on to launch an attack on Napier's speech and the British command and their tactics. "The failure of the British troops at New Orleans was as complete as possible; but patriotism or want of patriotism, had nothing to do with the business.... The military policy of England, guided by men, ignorant alike of the strength and the weakness of armies, swayed besides by the influence of philanthropic and economical patriots, whose evil counsel fell, like a death-bearing pestilence, on the ranks of the army-shone out in all its poor and paltry littleness: in the constant striving to save farthings, millions of treasure were wasted, and thousands of gallant lives were remorselessly sacrificed. The valour everywhere exhibited by the troops, the zeal, ability, high spirit, and devotedness displayed by so many matchless officers, the number of gallant blows struck, and noble feats of arms performed,- were not, it must be allowed, sufficient to counterbalance the folly, ignorance, and presumption, that marked the official management of that most miserable war. But, I repeat, the fault was not with the troops" The failure is not just at New Orleans. "The British failed at Sacket's Harbour, Platsburgh, and New Orleans; to which, for argument sake, we will add Baltimore.... At Sacket's Harbour and Platsburgh the British forces retired from phantom hosts and imaginary foes.... At Baltimore something of the same kind happened." After a detailed analysis of the military's failures, he ends his unrelenting attack: "But the soldiers of a great nation must know that they are equal to any contest. An American war, like every war in which brave men are to be encountered, has its difficulties; and it is only by looking those difficulties fairly in the face that they can be overcome. Had we listened to the liberal and patriotic despondency which so long represented us incapable of contending against the French, we should at this moment have been crouching beneath the lash of Napoleon, or his successor on the throne of the Grand Empire." Needless to say, many jumped to the defense of Napier, who wrote in his letter to the editor that the Sunday Times report of his speech was pure fiction and that he never criticized the troops; in fact, he states he never mentioned the war at all. John Mitchell (1785-1859) was an army officer and writer who served in the West Indies in the Peninsular War, and on diplomatic missions for Wellington. He wrote much on the defects of the British army, tactics, and a number of volumes including "The Fall of Napoleon" and "Biographies of Eminent Soldiers." Postmarked London, December 22, 1835. Addressed to Major [Thomas Henry] Shadwell Clerke, who was editor of "The United Service Journal and Naval and Military Service Magazine."

Abu al-Qasim Mahmud ibn Umar al-Zamakhshari (1075-1144), known as al-Zamakhshari, also called Jar Allah (Arabic for "God's neighbour"), was a medieval Muslim scholar of Persian origin, who subscribed to the Mu?tazilite theological doctrine. He was born in Khwarezmia, but lived most of his life in Bukhara, Samarkand, and Baghdad. He was a great authority on the Arabic language as well as a rationalist theologian. This little publication drew Hammer into a serious scholarly dispute with the German Arabist Fleischer, who set out in his 1836 counter-translation Hammer’s philological weaknesses.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("R.S.") to his friend and benefactor, Charles Williams Wynn, declining a dinner invitation

      W. Terring 1835 - One page, in ink. 1 vols. 12mo. To Friend His Friend Charles Williams Wynn, M.P. Wynn was an old college friend with whom Southey maintained a close relationship for the est of his life: "i cannot dine with you on Sunday, because Mr ___ (?) will be at Richmond, & Sunday is the only day during my short ___ (?) or that he dines with his family. Yesterday brought me a favourable account from York. She now talks and talks of my coming, he says she is afraid "the doctor will not think her well enough to leave" . tomorrow I go to Miss Bowles . "Wynn matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford, on 24 Dec. 1791, graduated B.A. in 1795, and M.A. in 1798. On 5 July 1810, the first year of office of his uncle, Lord Grenville, as chancellor of the university, he was created D.C.L. His rooms as an undergraduate were in `Skeleton Corner,' where Southey, who had made his friendship at Westminster in 1788 and kept it through life, used often to visit him. Wynn, though not a rich man, made Southey an allowance of 160l. per annum, beginning with the last quarter of 1796 and ending in 1807, when, through the same friendly influence, a net pension of 144l. a year was bestowed on him by the government. In 1801 Wynn hoped to obtain for his friend the post of secretary to some Italian legation, but was disappointed. Southey in 1805 dedicated to him the poem of `Madoc.'" - DNBMiss Bowles, of course, was Caroline Anne Bowles -- his friend, collaborator on "Robin Hood", and future wife. Cello-taped at edges, one edge chipped, with loss of a letter

        [Autobiography. Series of 29 autobiographical letters addressed to the editor of The New England magazine, dated 1833-1835]

      [Philadelphia]: n.p., 1835. First separate edition. Removed. Inked numeral 'six' on first page, first half dozen or so leaves with marginal foxing otherwise contents quite clean, a few marginal tears to the last few leaves, two marginal stitch punctures throughout, last leaf with a tiny puncture affecting one letter and with lower forecorner lacking, not affecting text, two words rubbed on last page, and remnants of original blue-gray wrappers at the joints. Perhaps lacking a portrait. Still a good copy.. 122 pp. Published without a title page (see NUC-pre-1956). A series of 29 autobiographical letters addressed to the editor of "The New England Magazine," dated 1833-1835. This volume was Mathew Cary's second attempt at an autobiography in book form. The first, entitled "Autobiographical Sketches, in a Series of Letters addressed to a Friend. Vol. 1, containing a view of the Rise and Progress of the American System, & c." (Philadelphia, 1829), was issued but then suppressed by the author's family, according to Rosenbach, in his 1906 catalogue. Though Earl Lockridge Bradsher in his "Mathew Carey, editor, author and publisher; a study in American literary development" (NY: Columbia Univ. Press, 1912) suggests "Letters" is a republication of the earlier volume, it is in fact a much different work, though it covers some of the same ground, as an autobiography must. The publication history is somewhat unclear due to lack of the title page, the very small printing, and the later private issue with three additional letters. Though a number of copies list a portrait, some do not, nor does American Imprints note one, and the remnants of the original blue-gray wrappers on our copy suggest it was not bound with one. OCLC locates only eight copies, under four accession numbers (some of them mis-titled): NYPL, Newberry, Univ. Texas at Austin, and Wesleyan, lacking portrait) (OCLC: 28596934), BC and Univ. Wisc. (OCLC: 15389834), and the Free Lib. of Phila. and Office of Commonwealth Lib. (OCLC: 8200528). An additional one is at the LCP under a caption title (portrait not noted). Very rare. Only one at auction- a century ago, at the third Pennypacker sale, lot 80, in 1906, lacking 6 leaves (perhaps confused with the later private issue which had 12 additional pages?), and noted as the only known copy (at that time), with no mention of a portrait. The earlier "Sketches", noted in Sabin and Howes, though a bit more represented in institutional holdings, likewise appeared at auction only once, at the Anderson Galleries in 1909. Amer. Imprints 30817. Not in Sabin.

      Roma 1835 - Incisione in rame, mm 615x440, tratta da "Le Antichit? Romane ossia raccolta delle pi? interessanti vedute di Roma antica". Dopo gli studi artistici a Bologna, Luigi Rossini (1790-1857) si trasferisce a Roma dove scopre le incisioni di Giambattista Piranesi. Qui conosce Bartolomeo Pinelli con il quale instaura una fitta collaborazione che terminer? solo con la morte di questi, nel 1835. Grazie a Pinelli, le incisioni di Rossini si popoleranno dei suo celebri personaggi. Oltre che a testimoniare il fermento culturale dell'epoca, l'opera di Rossini mostra monumenti antichi ormai perduti. Buon esemplare ben impresso, margini brevi, soprattutto in alto (solo circa 5 mm oltre alla battuta del rame), alcuni strappetti restaurati nei margini, uno in alto entro la battuta. Copper engraving, mm 615x440 from "Le Antichit? Romane ossia raccolta delle pi? interessanti vedute di Roma antica".

        The Universal Cambist and Commercial Instructor Being a General Treaty on Exchange, Including the Monies, Coins, Weights, and Measures, of All Trading Nations and their Colonies … The Second Edition. Corrected from verified Standards by Order and Aid of Government amd the East India Company: and kept correct during subsequent Alterations by a Series of Supplemets, comprising the New Laws for Establishing the Imperial System of Weights and Measures.

      - London, Printed for the Author, 1835. Two volumes in one, 4to. Original publisher's cloth (rarely seen), spine lettered in gilt, ornamented in blind, yellow endpapers; pp. xl, [2, errata], 422; xxiv, 380. [2], [2, author's advertisements], two engraverd maps of India at the end; cloth a little marked, a few pages alittle spotted, otjherwise very clean, fresh, and uncut with wide margins; provenance: contemporary engraved armorial bookplate of Lord Dinorben, Welsh copper mine owner, philanthropist and Whig politician, inside front cover. Actually third edition of an impressive accumulation of economic and trade knowledge for all kinds of business and financial services, with an supplement on the Indian Subcontinent on the final 55 pages of volume two. The title had appeared first in 1811 and was in this edition considerably enlarged and updated. The mathematician and astronomer Patrick Kelly 'was for many years master of the Finsbury Square Academy, London. Nothing is known of his parentage or early life; on 1 August 1789 he married Ann Plomley, who predeceased him. Their son, later the Revd Anthony Plomley Kelly (b. 1797), survived him. The Finsbury Square Academy, a finishing school teaching commercial and mathematical subjects, comprised a boarding-house, schools, and an observatory … At the end of the eighteenth century English merchants lacked any reliable guide to rates of exchange comparable with J. E. Kruse's Allgemeiner und besonders Hamburgischer Contorist (1753) prepared for the Hamburg merchants. The Bank of England in 1796 declined to undertake a similar task, and in 1804 Kelly submitted a prospectus for an expanded and updated version of Kruse's work. The bank then agreed to support Kelly, as did the Board of Trade, East India Company, and leading mercantile houses. His Universal Cambist (1811) dealt with the moneys, coins, weights, and measures "of all trading nations", and surpassed Kruse by including the East and West Indies and America. The Bank of England had assayed the gold and silver content of the coins, but Kelly could not procure foreign standards of weight and measure during the war years, and had perforce to rely on the equivalents provided by merchants. When peace came, the government issued a circular to all British consuls to obtain standards; these were compared at the Royal Mint. The first edition of the Cambist showed up the earlier defective exchange rates, especially in Spanish and French currencies, which had cost England dear, and these new and corrected values were published in the second edition in 1821' (ODNB).
