        Mémoire sur la Dispersion de la Lumière. [As published in Nouveaux Exercices de Mathématiques].

      Prague: J.G. Calve, 1835-36. The memoire in which Cauchy explained the dispersion of light from the undulatory theory of light, and first derived the equation, named after him, relating the refractive index and wavelength of light for a particular transparent material. This memoire was a continuation of his earlier work, of the same title published in Paris in 1830, and was issued as eight parts of his periodical 'Nouveaux Exercices de Mathématiques' (see below). "The dispersion of light when passing through matter without getting fully absorbed, i.e., the variation of the refractive index n (which denotes the ratio of the velocity of light in vacuo to the velocity of light in matter) with the wavelength, always played an important role in the history of optics since the times of Isaac Newton. After the undulatory theory of light won over the corpuscular view in the beginning of the nineteenth century, Augustin Louis Cauchy proposed an explanation of the dispersion phenomenon, based on the assumption that matter consisted of molecules having finite distances from each other (Cauchy 1836). According to his theory the refractive index n increased with decreasing wavelength ? of the light - n was approximately proportional to ?-2 - in general agreement with the data on what was later called 'normal' dispersion." (Mehra & Rechenberg: The Historical Development of Quantum Theory, Vol. 1, Part 2, p. 630). "The first livraisons appeared successively during the year 1835, at Prague. The first is a repetition of the 'Memoire sur la dispersion' [Paris, 1830]. In the second, (besides other discussions) is contained the actual deduction of the formula for dispersion. In September, 1835, [Cauchy] circulated a lithographed memoire on interpolation, (a translation of which appears in the Journal of Science, Vol. VIII. p. 459) in which he gives a calculation by that method, of Fraunhofer's indices for one kind of flint glass, but without any theoretical explanation. In the 'Nouveaux Exercices' for 1836, he gives in detail his most elaborate and exact method of computation, and applies it with perfect success to all the indices determined by Fraunhofer" (Baden Powell: A General and Elementary View of the Undulatory Theory, as Applied to the Dispersion of Light, London, Parker, 1851, pp. XLVI-XLVII). "In 1826 Cauchy began to publish his 'Exercises de Mathematiques', which was essentially a mathematical periodical consisting entirely of papers written by himself; it appeared at approximately monthly intervals until 1830. He used similar series as vehicles for his publications at later stages of his career; the 'Nouveaux Exercices de Mathématiques' were published in Prague in 1835-36 and the 'Exercices d'Analyse et de Physique Mathématique' appeared at intervals from 1840 to 1853." (Smithies: Cauchy and the Creation of Complex Function Theory, p.113). 4to: 259 x 202 mm. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, marbled end papers, engraved bookplate to front paste down, hinges worn but still strong, head and tale of spine professionally repaired, in all a very nice copy. (IV: title and forword to the Exercices), IV(: title and forword of the memoire), 236 pp. Scarce.

        The Dandy's Toilet, or, How to be a Beau

      (England, 1835. (4)pp., + 8ff. Original manuscript set of costume overlays depicting the evolution of a "Youth just ceased to grow" into a "Dandy quite complete." The Youth's ambition is to be a "Beau," and in each successive overlay, he puts on more of the trappings of dandyism until his costume is in place, with black velvet stock (or cravat), corset, boots, pantaloons, coat, whiskers, mustache, wig, and hat. The overlays are hand-drawn and colored in a caricaturish style, with a hole to show the Youth's face below, and they are accompanied by a four-page hand-written account in rhyme of the Youth's transformation, which builds on itself with each additional article of clothing. The hourglass shape of the Youth's frock coat and his pantaloons date the set to the period between 1825 and 1835. His coat is made by famous Savile Row tailors Henry Poole & Co. and once he has finished his transformation, the Youth is ready to lounge on Regent Street. Minor wear to booklet and light spotting to overlays, else fine. Housed in cloth chemise. (Jane Austen's World; Regency Men's Fashion; Valsin, Ellie, Men's Fashion ca. 1830 Coats).

Contemporary three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt, edges marbled. Hinges cracked, but solid. Spines rubbed, corners slightly worn. An occasional light fox mark, otherwise internally clean. Nearly very good. A lovely set of the first edition of the rarest Pacific voyage in the ZAMORANO 80: a primary source on Mexican California and including an early view of Hawaii. Duhaut-Cilly was a French trader who arrived in Yerba Buena from Mazatlan in 1827 in command of the ship Heroes. He spent most of that year along the California coast. "This commercial enterprise, although a financial failure, resulted in the first foreign account of Spanish California by a literate and observant French trader, who, while trying to sell his goods, visited most of the missions, presidios, and pueblos of Alta California, and wrote the best contemporary account of the region. He had a splendid opportunity to observe affairs and took advantage of it, being the first outsider to become intimately acquainted with the then thriving area. His ship also visited Valparaiso, the Galapagos Islands, Hawaii, Macao, and Java" - Hill. "[Duhaut-Cilly] was accompanied by Dr. Paolo Emilio Botta, later to gain renown as an archeologist and writer. Duhaut-Cilly recorded his California observations interestingly, accurately and intelligently in some 300 pages of his VOYAGE" - ZAMORANO 80. Three of the plates illustrate Monterey, San Luis Rey, and Fort Ross, and one depicts Honolulu. No edition in English has ever been published of this invaluable account. This first edition is so rare that in his catalogue 50 (item 64), Howell surmises that only about a dozen complete copies are known. HILL 499. HOWES D547, "b." SABIN 21164. ZAMORANO 80, 31.

        Éléments de géologie ou seconde partie des éléments d'histoire naturelle inorganique

      Paris, F. G. Levrault, 1835. 1835, 1835, in-8, X-[1]-742 pages, une planche, un tableau et une carte en couleurs, le tout dépliant, demi-basane cerise, dos lisse et orné, tranches marbrées, Seconde édition, l'originale ayant paru en 1831, de cet ouvrage important et peu courant, contenant l'une des premières cartes géologiques de la France ; Omalius d'Halloy avait dressé la toute première, à petite échelle, en 1822 (parue dans les Annales des Mines). Il en donna une nouvelle édition en 1828, incluant le sud de l'Angleterre, au sein de ses Mémoires pour servir à la description des Pays-Bas, de la France et de quelques contrées voisines. Cette édition fut publiée dans le but de compléter l' "histoire naturelle inorganique" dont il avait publié une première partie (Introduction à la géologie) en 1833. Jean-Baptiste Julien Omalius d'Halloy (1783-1875) joua un rôle majeur dans la transition des systèmes stratigraphiques de Werner ou Guettard vers ceux de la Brèche et Murchison. Ses travaux le conduisirent à élaborer une colonne géologique sophistiquée de la France, qui put servir de base au développement de toute la stratigraphie continentale dans la première moitié du XIXe siècle. Dans ces Éléments de géologie se trouve reproduite une colonne, formée de 22 terrains, accompagnée d'une coupe stratigraphique, qui devait permettre de concevoir une idée de la structure supérieure de l'écorce terrestre. Cet ouvrage lui permet également d'exposer ses vues sur les processus de la formation géologique, refusant les thèses uniformitaristes et fixistes : "His controversial views grew out of his conservative refusal to accept complete uniformitarism in geology. In papers and in his textbook, Élements de géologie, d'Omalius argued that contemporary geological process are not capable of having produced all formations. Reasoning from the traditional hypothesis that the earth was originally a hot mass cooling slowly, he insisted that the deepest structures (...) had been formed by eath agencies no longer intensely active". Ses conceptions contribuèrent à influencer Charles Darwin qui, dans la préface de la troisième édition de l'Origine des espèces, le cite parmi ses prédécesseurs (1861).

        Lettera autografa e trascrizioni inedite relative agli anni 1835-1836. 1860-1870 ca.

      1835. in-8 (mm 230x190), ff. 42 su carta di vari colori, brossura muta in carta azzurra. Coprende: - un ritratto a lapis firmato ''C.B.'' raffigurante Ibrahim Pacha, elrm;(1789 endash;1848) generale ed uomo di Stato egiziano. Tale disegno, probabilmente autografo del Balbo, venne verosimilmente realizzato nel 1846 in occasione di una visita in Europa Occidentale del noto politico egiziano. -Lettera autografa del Balbo di una pagina indirizzata ''A un Amico'' datata Totino 22 Aprile 1842. In basso a destra una nota a lapis la dice composta ''In occasione del gran Torneo eseguitosi in Piazza S. Carlo'' e riporta le sigle ''C.B. a A.O.''. Curiosa missiva ''..Oh la terra dell'Alpi ! Oh il sangue e gli animi/ vinti de' guerrier di San-Quintino/ Oh la città delle memorie belliche/ Nobil Torino !..''. - 3 ff. contenenti trascrizioni rispettivamente di una lettera in inglese dello scrittore William Beatty Kingston datata 28 May 1868 in cui cita Torino; alcuni versi francesi del senatore e politico Amédée de Pastoret dedicati al Castello di Chenonceaux, ove Balbo e la moglie trascorsero oltre un anno di luna di miele; la traduzione francese di alcuni versi arabi composti nel maggio del 1851 da ?Abd al-Q?der, padre della nazione algerina, in occasione di una visita ai discendenti della famiglia della prima moglie di Balbo. - XVIII componimenti scritti da Balbo tra 1835 e 1836 tutti dedicati alla prima moglie e ai figli. Si tratta con ogni probabilità di trascrizioni di appunti conservati a Casa Balbo o in qualche carteggio autografo dell'autore. Il filo conduttore è la disperazione provata dal Balbo in seguito alla prematura scomparsa di Felicita ''figlia del barone di Villeneuve e di Laura di Ségur, pronipote di D'Aguessau'', sposata nel 1823 e deceduta nel 1833, laciandogli 8 figli. Dopo un periodo di malattia e di grande depressione, Balbo sposò nel 1837, Luisa Galeani Napione, figlia di Gian Francesco, e vedova del conte della Piè. Queste lettere private, quasi una sorta di diario sull'argomento, precedono quindi di pochi mesi la celebrazione delle seconde nozze. -un bifolio staccato datato 6 maggio 1846 in cui vi sono versi anonimi in cui si esorta Carlo Alberto di Savoia ad agire ''Carlo Alberto è giunta l'ora.. Carlo Alberto vieni fuora/ che quell'ora già suonò..''. Interessante assieme che permette di cogliere aspetti della vita pubblica di Cesare Balbo, legati ai suoi rapporti internazionali, ma anche il lato più privato, intimo ed inedito del rapporto con la moglie. Cesare Balbo (Torino, 21 novembre 1789 endash; 3 giugno 1853) fu un politico e scrittore italiano, Presidente del Consiglio del Regno di Sardegna.

        Unrecorded Manuscript Translation of the Diplomatic Turkish Envoy to Vienna

      England, circa 1835. Unrecorded English manuscript translation of Ahmet Resmî Efendi's lesser known narrative "Viyana Sefaretnamesi" in which he described his diplomatic embassy to Vienna during the Seven Years' War. This is an abridged work, providing a summary of the journey from Istanbul to Vienna in 1757, and most importantly, his official meeting with Francis I, Holy Roman Emperor, King of Germany. The English writer includes footnotes on some Ottoman custom and terminology, drawing these from the work of Austrian diplomat and orientalist Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall (1774-1856) who, at around this same time, had translated the earlier Sefâretnâme of Evliya Efendi into English. 8vo. 19 pages, plus introduction, penned on 6 string-tied double leafs bearing the watermark 'Cansell 1834.' Item measures approximately 10,5 x 17,5 cm. Ahmet Resmî Efendi's report "Viyana Sefaretnamesi" was written immediately upon his return to Istanbul from Vienna in 1758. It should not be confused with his more commonly known account of his subsequent embassy to Berlin in 1763-1764, "Sefaretnâme-yi-Prusya". Both of the works, on the Vienna and Berlin embassies, were translated into German in 1809 by celebrated Austrian diplomat and orientalist Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall (1774-1856), who is mentioned in the writer's prefatory notes. [In 1834, Von Hammer also published an English translation of the earlier Seyahatname of Evliya Efendi, covering the first two volumes on Constantinople and Anatolia. Von Hammer titled his translation "Evliya Efendi." To this day, there is no English translation of the entire Seyahatname, only of various parts, Von Hammer's being the longest single English translation.] Sefâretnâme, literally "the book of embassy", was a genre of Turkish literature which was closely related to seyahatname which means "the book of travels", but was specific to the recounting of journeys and experiences of an Ottoman ambassador in a foreign land and capital, usually in Europe. Sefâretnâme were edited by their authors with a view to their presentation to the Sultan and to his high administration, thus also bearing a semi-official character, their objective being to make them "feel" the foreign country in question, as much as informing on it. For this reason, and for the literary qualities that were sought in order to attain their objective, they remain of lasting interest. An Ottoman embassy was despatched to the royal court of Vienna in late 1757, to formally announce the accession of Sultan Mustafa III to the throne, Ahmed Resmî being appointed to the task of presenting the Imperial news to Emperor and King Francis I. It was customary at the time to send emissaries to friendly Christian states, to make such announcements. Simultaneous to Ahmet Resmi's embassy to Vienna, embassies were also sent to Poland and Russia. With an entourage of over sixty men, including court officials, Ahmet Resmi departed on 2 December 1757. The envoy consisted of the Commander of the Palace Guard, the keeper of the Seal, the Guardian of the Treasury, two Sergeant-at-Arms, the Secretary of the Embassy, an imam, an interpreter, a ceremonial sword-bearer, some thirty men of the elite Janissary Palace Guards, and twenty-two servants. The trip to Vienna took 3 months, after forty days arriving in Belgrade, where, on-board a vessel on the Sava river on 25 January 1758, he was introduced by the Minister of Finance to his Austrian guide. On the outskirts of Vienna, three days were spent resting and making arrangements for his entrance into the city. Finally, on 13 March 1758, Ahmet Resmi and his retinue proceeded into Vienna, where at a bridge, they were met by interpreter and a cavalry regiment who escorted them all to Leopoldstat, a residence for ambassadors. On 19 April, the Turkish ambassador was taken to the palace in the Emperor's carriage, with quite a ceremony, as described in the present manuscript. He was first received by Francis I, who impressed him immensely, also described herein, and three days later by Mary Theresa, the same ceremony and formalities taking place on both occasions. Staying in Vienna for 4 months, the foreigners were treated with superb hospitality by the Hasburg monarchs, the hosts preparing great banquets and entertainment. Ahmet Resmi and his court officials in turn hosted a meal for the Austrian court officials. Touring, however, was hampered by the fear of the city being attacked by the armies of Frederick the Great. Late June saw their departure, after approval and provisions for safe passage from the Austrian monarchs. [It was the second year of the Seven Years' War. Frederick the Great of Prussia, and Archduchess of Austria Maria Theresa, were equally dissatisfied with the Treaty of Aix-la-Chapelle which had ended the Austrian War of Succession in 1748, and were once again at war.] Upon his return to Istanbul early September 1958, Ahmet Resmi documented his detailed observations of the Hasburg Empire in "Viyana Sefaretnamesi" [Vienna Embassy], including politics, government, war, and Austrian custom, which generated a new political interest on behalf of the Turkish Court to further acquaint itself with European nations. This also laid the foundation for his subsequent appointment, an embassy to Berlin. The embassy to Vienna 1757-1758 was followed by a similar appointment, the first ever Turkish embassy to the court of Frederick the Great in Berlin in 1763-1764. After each embassy, Ahmed Resmî submitted a detailed report on the geography of his passage and the politics of the courts he encountered. In the case of the Berlin embassy, he left behind not just an account of diplomatic niceties but also a portrayal of Frederick the Great and a description of the Seven Years' War. His observations abroad initiated a profound priority within the Ottoman Empire, to further study European politics. Achmet Resmî Efendi (Ahmed Efendi of Resmo) 1700-1783, was a Greek-Ottoman statesman, diplomat and author of the late 18th century. He was Turkey's first ever ambassador in Berlin (1763/1764). In terms of international relations, his most important and unfortunate task however was to act as the chief of the Ottoman delegation during the negotiations and the signature of the Treaty of Küçük Kaynarca. He wrote several important and fascinating works of social and political interest pertaining to the Ottoman Empire, the Russo-Turkish War of 1768-1774, being best remembered for the sefâretnâme accounts from his embassies to Vienna and Berlin. Ahmet Resmi was associated with a circle of reformers, who transformed diplomatic relations of the Ottomans with Europe in the 18th century, and who established some of the first privately funded public libraries of Istanbul. The present succinct translation, made from the original firsthand Turkish report "Viyana Sefaretnamesi", discloses excellent detail of an official diplomatic conference between Turkish Embassador Ahmet Resmi and Hasburg monarchs Francis I and Maria Theresa, in the Imperial Court at Vienna. It features descriptions of the exquisite palace and royal dress, the perils of travel during the during the Seven Years' War, as well as naming numerous ancient fortresses dispersed between the two nations. Following are some excerpts from the translated manuscript: Title: Takriri Resmi [Memorandum on Resmi]: The Narrative of Resmi Effendi containing a description of Germany, Vienna, Yassi, Hotin, the fortress of Kaminiek, the country of Poland, & the country of Brandenburg (Prussia). "... this is the description of a journey, undertaken in order to announce to the Court of Germany the accession of the clement Emperor Mustafa Khan the Third, which accession took place on the 16th day of the month of Sefer in the year 1711... that commission having been deputed to his servant Hadji Ahmed Resmi." "... we reached Constantinople by the mercy of God... Adrianople [Edirne]in eight days, & were obliged to remain there three days. We then proceeded a distance of six hours to a place taking its name from Mustafa Pasha... passed the river Meriç (Hebrus)... spent the night in the village... during the space of 250 years dinners were distributed to the towns-people & wayfaring men, but latterly... this charity has been cut short... the people of the town are evidently much afflicted." "Exactly on the fortieth day of our journey, at the commencement of Jemadi ul Ewwel, we reached & entered the fortress of Belgrade. During a sojourn there of three days, having through the intervention of the Governor of Semlin [Zemun], & the Commandant of Varadin, communicated my arrival to the General at Esseck [Osijek], the Interpreter & Mehmandar who had been dispatched from Vienna to meet me, came to Semlin, & then to Belgrade..." "... in the middle of the river Save [Sava], the interpreter & the Commandant of Semlin came in a painted ornamented boat... with the customary procession, & accompanied by the Defterdar of Belgrade... [who] ... delivered this servant with his suite of sixty persons... " ['Defterdar' is an Ottoman Minister of Finance] "On the further bank of Save [Sava] two companies of soldiers were ready with carriages and waggons for ourself & suite. After cannon had been fired, we entered the carriages, & proceeding for a space of two hours... lodging prepared for us at the town of Semlin [Zemun]... receiving hospitality there for seven days we proceeded from town to town with token of honor & distinction, being attended by two Interpreters, two Mehmandars, a Physician, & a Captain with sixty soldiers..." "... arrived in ten days at the fortress of Esseck [Osijek]... a strong castle... Esseck [Osijek] is distant twenty hours march from the frontier of Bosnia... a very long bridge..." [Osijek is now the fourth largest city in Croatia. Having been under Ottoman rule since invasion in 1526, the city was restored to western rule in 1687 when the Habsburg Empire exiled the Turks. Between 1712 and 1715, Austrian authorities built a new fortress, outer walls and all five planned bastions known as Tvrda.] "... came to a city called Altenburg... barns & mills belonging to the Empress [Maria Theresa]... " "Vienna, in the heart of Germany, we set forth in a pompous procession... being met on the part of Cesar [Kaiser Francis I] at a bridge near Vienna by a principal Secretary & an Interpreter with a troop of horse soldiers... passed within the fortress of Vienna... a splendid hotel prepared for Ambassadors in a suburb of the Isle of Leopoldus close to the Danube." "Our entrance into Vienna coincided with the beginning of the new year... they were pressing the march of troops from the city in consequence of the invasion of the Check country (Bohemia)" "... no time to receive the Imperial letter, its presentation was put off until the commencement of Shaban." "... Cesars Chief Intendant having sent an invitation... coaches drawn by six horses, a troop of soldiers as an escort, & six large saddle horses with splendid trappings for my own suite, we entered the coach... proceeded in a state to the Intendants house. The streets were full of persons appointed to meet me..." "... in the intendants chamber... he rose from his chair... began to converse... questions appropriate to my position as a friend & an Ambassador... after fixing a day for delivering the epistle of the illustrious Chief of Divan (the Grand Vizier), & presenting the Imperial Letter... we returned..." "Three days after upon receiving an invitation from the principal Intendant of Vienna... we delivered to him the letter full of grace & sublimity. On the 10th day of the month of Shaban, having been invited on the part of Cesar [Kaiser Francis I], who sent his own coach... we went in procession to the palace [Schönbrunn]." "... at the mounting stone, & the head of the staircase, a great concourse met me, & I was preceded by a man called the master of ceremonies... near Cesars audience chamber [Kaiser Francis I]... the chief porter opened the door of Divan-khane... The audience chamber was full of great men & their wives... a raised couch... covered with a Persian carpet; on this couch, by the side of an arm chair lined with yellow silk, stood Cesar [Kaiser Francis I] - clad in a suit of black velvet studded with diamonds." "I spoke this...This Imperial epistle imparts to your friendship the happy tidings of the fortunate accession to the ...throne of Osman, of the clement Emperor, my Master, the asylum of the world." "Afterwards Cesar [Kaiser Francis I]... replied that the accession of his majesty... he offered his congratulations." "I gave in my own house an entertainment prepared by my works & with my own cooking utensils, at which the ministers of state & secretaries for foreign affairs assisted; they brought their own dinners, but they likewise partook of my dinner, & approved of it. Afterwards I lived quietly in my own quarters, guarded by sixty soldiers... & changed every four days... each day a coach that I might go out..." "During four months that we resided at Vienna, what with sending away troops towards Brandenburg, introducing supplies into the fortress of Vienna, under an impression that Brandenburg might come there, & collecting forces in the suburb, they were never free of agitation, which induced them to court the favor of the Sublime [Ottoman] Court." "Cesar [Kaiser Francis I] received me standing... granted permission for my departure, wished me a prosperous journey... each of us was presented with a gold chain & trinkets of silver. Thus our business terminated." "... we embarked in boats, with the understanding that in 35 days we should reach Belgrade. Leaving Vienna on Saturday, the 25th day of Sheval... troubles arising from the war with Brandenburg..." End excerpts. The Margraviate of Brandenburg (Markgrafschaft Brandenburg) was a major principality of the Holy Roman Empire from 1157 to 1806. Also known as the March of Brandenburg (Mark Brandenburg), it played a pivotal role in the history of Germany and Central Europe. The territory of the Margraviate of Brandenburg was the most important region of the Kingdom of Prussia, and it was the site of the kingdom's capitals, Berlin and Potsdam. From 1701 to 1946, Brandenburg's history was largely that of the state of Prussia, which established itself as a major power in Europe during the 18th century. Frederick the Great was King of Prussia from 1740 until 1786.

        Théorie mathématique de la Chaleur.

      Paris: Bachelier, 1835. First edition of this classic work on the mathematical theory of heat conduction. "Poisson scored a point in this work by demonstrating how the conductibility of heat in the interior of bodies, far from being contained in the notion of flux as Fourier had held, must be derived from an absorption coefficient that restores a neglected functional dimension. It was in this area that ... Poisson's mechanical model for conduction of heat was the most fruitful. That conception enabled Poisson to understand on the molecular scale the complete and correct equation for radiation of heat" (DSB). "The year ... 1835 saw the appearance of the next installment of Poisson's 'treatise of mathematical physics': his Théorie mathématique de la Chaleur, a 532-page volume put out by Bachelier in 1,000 copies. The introduction included his history of heat theory, and was followed by accounts of, in order: physical parameters, and some aspects of radiant heat; general theory of radiant heat; principles of heat diffusion; interior diffusion in solids and liquids (including the constants defined as cumulative integrals; surface diffusion; solutions to the diffusion equation, especially Laplace's integral form but also Fourier series and surface harmonics; and the cooling of a bar of varying section and of a sphere ... Poisson also laid especial emphasis on terrestrial heat distribution in two of the chapters on spheres ... After reporting data from Arago and others on temperatures measured in various situations below ground, he challenged the belief of Laplace and Fourier that the heat of the earth was largely conserved internally from its creation on the grounds that the temperatures in the earth's core would be too high: he wondered if the temperature of the universe varied in the different parts of the earth's course, and he also considered solar, stellar and atmospheric heat" (Grattan-Guinness). The first significant mathematical theory of heat conduction was read to the Institut de France by Jean-Baptiste-Joseph Fourier (1772-1837) in December 1807. It was not favoured with a report, and it was only through Poisson's efforts that it was published (three months later, in abridged form). Fourier's work excited controversy on two counts. Neither Joseph-Louis Lagrange (1736-1813), nor Pierre-Simon Laplace (1749-1827), nor Poisson, considered his solutions in trigonometric series, rather than power series, to be rigorously founded. "Fourier's method of obtaining the partial differential equation of heat conduction excited equal controversy, for he very nearly wrote it down as a direct expression of experimental results. To the prevailing orthodoxy, rigour in physique mathématique meant rigorous deduction of observable consequences from a detailed microscopic model of atoms or molecules and their interactions. Conceptually, the net action of a system at any point in space derived from a sum (or less rigorously an integral) over the independent actions of all the discrete sources in the system. Rigour therefore required one to begin with an integral conception, then carefully to convert it to the more manageable form of a partial differential equation, and finally to find a power-series solution. Fourier violated every step in the process, beginning with his appeal directly to experimental laws ... "Notwithstanding the 'splendour and poetry' that William Thomson [Lord Kelvin] would see in Fourier's treatise, his Laplacian contemporaries did not see its beauty. After more than twenty-five years of controversy, Poisson continued to elaborate in his own Théorie mathématique de la Chaleur the same kinds of objections that Laplace originally raised in 1808. All of their complaints involve the charge that Fourier's principle for the communication of heat obscured the physical process of diffusion by incorporating from the outset two approximations: radiation extends only to infinitesimal distances in a solid, rather than to small but finite distances; and radiation rate is strictly proportional to temperature difference, rather than nearly so. Behind these complaints stood the Laplacian creed, as expressed by Laplace himself in responding to Fourier's original memoir in 1808: 'I have wanted to establish that the phenomena of nature reduce in the final analysis to action ad distans from molecule to molecule, and that the consideration of these actions ought to serve as the basis of the mathematical theory of these phenomena.' "A proper derivation of the equations of heat conduction, as Poisson presented it, began with an explicit model of the relation between ponderable molecules and caloric fluid in a solid, incorporating both the free caloric radiated from the molecules and responsible for temperature, and the bound or latent caloric involved in changes of phase. His model attributed to the radiating molecules the full complexity of observable objects, including radiation to finite distances, radiation rates between molecules proportional to finite temperature differences, and a correction factor depending on absolute temperature to account for possible non-linearity. From this speculative picture, he extracted by rigorous, if tedious, expansions and approximations the general equation for the motion of heat. It involved a conductivity factor derived from the model that included variations of conductivity with temperature and with inhomogeneities in the medium. This equation differs from Fourier's by [an additional term], which is non-zero if conductivity is a function of temperature. Poisson's derivation implied that this term must be non-zero if radiation occurs between molecules separated by finite distances, and thus by finite temperature differences, for then the conductivity would indeed depend on absolute temperature. He regarded his much more complex procedure, therefore, as not only more rigorous but also as leading beyond a mere restatement of experimental results. It allowed theory to lead experimentation by suggesting what features to test, much as one might claim today for the hypothetico-deductive method" (Smith & Wise, Energy & Empire, pp. 158-161). Poisson's (1781-1840) family had intended him for a medical career, but he showed little interest or aptitude and in 1798 began studying mathematics at the École Polytechnique in Paris under the mathematicians Laplace and Lagrange, who became his lifelong friends. He became a professor at the École Polytechnique in 1802. In 1808 he was made an astronomer at the Bureau of Longitudes, and, when the Faculty of Sciences was instituted in 1809, he was appointed a professor of pure mathematics. Poisson's most important work concerned the application of mathematics to electricity and magnetism, mechanics, and other areas of physics. His Traité de Mécanique (1811) was the standard work in mechanics for many years. In 1812 he provided an extensive treatment of electrostatics, based on Laplace's methods from planetary theory, by postulating that electricity is made up of two fluids in which like particles are repelled and unlike particles are attracted with a force that is inversely proportional to the square of the distance between them. Poisson contributed to celestial mechanics by extending the work of Lagrange and Laplace on the stability of planetary orbits and by calculating the gravitational attraction exerted by spheroidal and ellipsoidal bodies. His expression for the force of gravity in terms of the distribution of mass within a planet was used in the late 20th century for deducing details of the shape of the Earth from accurate measurements of the paths of orbiting satellites. Poisson's other publications include Recherches sur la Probabilité des Jugements en Matière criminelle et en Matière civile (1837), an important investigation of probability, which includes the 'Poisson distribution'; Poisson's contributions to the law of large numbers also appeared there. Although originally derived as merely an approximation to the binomial distribution (obtained by repeated, independent trials that have only one of two possible outcomes), the Poisson distribution is now fundamental in the analysis of problems concerning radioactivity, traffic, and the random occurrence of events in time or space. In pure mathematics his most important works were a series of papers on definite integrals and his advances in Fourier analysis, which paved the way for the research of the German mathematicians Peter Gustav Lejeune Dirichlet (1805-1859) and Bernhard Riemann (1826-1866). A second edition appeared in 1837, with an added supplement (which is sometimes found bound with copies of the first edition sold after 1837). Bibliotheca Chemico-Mathematica 3683; Roberts & Trent 260; Stanitz 353. 4to (270 x 218 mm), pp. [vi], 532 with one folding engraved plate. An unusually fine copy, uncut in original plain wrappers.

Jackson 1835 - Nice copy of the scarce 1835 edition - more in the nature of a general encyclopedia, including historical articles, geographical notes, census information etc., including changes in representation following the 1832 Reform Act. This copy has been nicely rebound at some time in its history, with the original spine leather laid down (beginning to come loose but an easy repair to put fresh adhesive down); marbled endpapers appear to be replacements but are attractive & sympathetic; green cloth tape reinforces the gutters & appears to have been part of the rebinding process (i.e. not new). The boards are very worn & it appears the original marbled papers on the outside are original. Slight toning to the text block but on the whole pleasingly clean; pp.960. Includes fifteen plates: Liverpool opposite title, also Antwerp, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Edinburgh Old Town, Dublin, Halifax, Flamborough Head, Collegiate Church Manchester, Plymouth Breakwater, Preston, Ripon, Waterford, Venice and York; the fifteenth plate is an engraving of Canova's statue, The Dancing Girls - some tissue guards have been lost, resulting in offsetting. Slight spotting to some of the plates but much cleaner than some I have seen from this period. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Histoire naturelle des animaux sans vertèbres, présentant les caractères généraux et particuliers de ces animaux, leur distribution, leurs classes, leurs familles, leurs genres, et la citation des principales espèces qui s'y rapportent.

      Paris, Baillière, 1835, -1845. ____ Le premier tableau complet qui ait jamais été donné des invertébrés. C'est une version beaucoup plus étendue du "Système des animaux sans vertèbres" (1801), qui avait paru en un seul volume. Cette "Histoire naturelle des animaux sans vertèbres" a été publiée une première fois (1815-1822) en 7 volumes. C'est donc une version plus étendue, revue et augmentée de notes par Deshayes et Milne Edwards et le concours de Dujardin pour les radiaires et les tuniciers, et de Nordmann pour les vers. Dans l'introduction, qui occupe presque tout le premier volume, Lamarck expose les quatre lois de sa théorie de l'évolution. En systématique, Lamarck a séparé les araignées et les crustacés, des insectes. Il est avant tout l'inventeur de la distinction entre vertébrés et invertébrés. Cet ouvrage a conservé jusqu'à aujourd'hui une certaine valeur comme point de départ pour des recherches en systématique. Landrieu, Lamarck pp. 239 et suivantes. Reliures légèrement usées aux coiffes et aux charnières, papier un peu roussi, mais assez bel exemplaire. *****. 11 volumes in-8. Collation : Demi-basane bleue, dos orné. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        Colonization, particularly in Southern Australia.

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1835. Octavo; in the original green morocco-grain half cloth and drab papered boards; printed paper label on the spine. First and only edition of Boone's first Australian publication. Between 1835 and 1853 Thomas and William Boone would publish an outstanding series of the classic accounts of Australian travel, including those of Mitchell, Grey, Eyre, Hodgkinson, Stokes, Jukes, Leichhardt, Sturt and Read.With the passing of the South Australian Act in 1834, the colonists petitioned for the appointment of Napier as governor. A hero of the French wars, he wrote this work to set out his views on the proposed colony. Finally, in May 1835, he was informed that the terms he proposed on behalf of the colonists were not acceptable to the Company, so he declined the appointment in 1836 to continue his military career.Although Napier prepared the book from the writings of others, it is, like Samuel Sidney's almost two decades later, of interest as an attempt to present eye-witness reports of the first explorers and earliest settlers to a very wide public. Thus, with works such as Napier's, Ogle's on Western Australia, and Sidney's on the "three colonies", we see the seeds of the clichéd and simplistic perception of Australia as an antipodean Arcadia which did so much to colour the way the world at large and - perhaps regrettably - Australians themselves saw their continent for at least another hundred years. The joints neatly restored, a very good copy.

        Paracelsus. FIRST EDITION.

      Effingham Wilson. 1835 Half title; lightly browned with the occasional spot. Orig. drab boards; some sl. rubbing to extremities, corners sl. bumped. A superb copy in the original boards. In a sl. rubbed half green morocco slip-case.Wise 2. Some copies were issued with a paper label and a 12-page publisher's catalogue dated January 1836. The subject of Paracelsus, the 16th century philosopher and scientist, was suggested by the Count Amédée de Ripert-Monclar, to whom Browning dedicated this work. The Cambridge History of English and American Literature describes Paracelsus as 'the most miraculous and inexplicable of all the exhibitions of Browning's genius. The promise it contained, with all the poet's lasting greatness, was not fulfilled. Its form and artistic manner, the lineaments and the movements of the mind which work within it, the noble passions which moved the poet and the faith which inspired and controlled him—these are pre-eminently illuminating to the student of Browning and by far the best introduction to all he strove to do.'

      London: W. Nicol for John Murray, 1835. Two volumes, octavo, extra-illustrated with 71 plates by Hogarth and others (inlaid to size or pasted down); in contemporary dark green pebble grain morocco gilt, all edges gilt. A very handsome extra-illustrated copy of Butler's famous mock epic, in fine condition. This edition begins with a short preface describing the work of Nash, whose life of Butler and voluminous notes on Hudibras are reproduced here. Nash (1725-1811) was a clergyman who spent his time in historical research rather than preaching to his parishioners. He wrote a definitive work on the history of Worcestershire, where he lived, and the fact that Butler was born in the same county induced him to do this edition of Butler, which DNB describes as 'splendid' and 'entertaining'. A very fine fresh and clean copy.
