        Extraits des Comptes rendus hebdomadaires des séances de l'Académie des sciences : plus de 500 mémoires, notes, rapports et interventions diverses

      (Paris, Bachelier), 1836 - 1857. 12 volumes in - 4 demi - chagrin vert, dos à faux nerfs fleuronnés à froid 1836 - 1857, 1836 - 1857, , 12 volumes in - 4, demi - chagrin vert, dos à faux nerfs fleuronnés à froid, Ensemble exceptionnel réunissant, en éditions originales, les interventions du grand mathématicien Cauchy à l'Académie des sciences sur 22 ans, extraites, réunies et reliées le par bibliophile Henri Viellard (1840 - 1886), ancien élève de l'École Polytechnique et ingénieur en explosifs. Les articles sont classés par ordre de publication, souvent complétés par quelques lignes ou par des pages entières manuscrites par le compilateur. Cauchy (1789 - 1857) fut un mathématicien des plus prolifiques ; il publia, sur quarante - sept années, de 1810 à 1857, un nombre considérable d'écrits, disséminés dans une foule de recueils, soit plus de 600 mémoires, rapports et notes, auxquels il faut ajouter les publications d'ouvrages parus sous son seul nom, tels que les Exercices mathématiques. En 1836, l'inauguration des Comptes rendus des séances de l'Académie des Sciences lui offrit "une nouvelle voie de publication plus particulièrement en rapport avec la tournure de son esprit. Habitué à scruter sans relâche les idées nouvelles qui sollicitaient son génie, et plus porté à faire progresser la science qu'à conduire à la perfection des travaux isolés, il trouvait dans ce recueil hebdomadaire le moyen de transmettre sans retard au monde savant le résultat de ses investigations incessantes. Dès l'année 1836, on rencontre dans les Comptes rendus, sous la forme de Lettres adressées à divers membres de l'Académie, une série de communications du plus haut intérêt ; à partir de 1838, Cauchy, étant revenu en France et ayant repris sa place à l'Académie, commence une longue série de Mémoires qui se poursuit jusqu'en 1857, et qui embrasse dans son ensemble les sujets les plus variés et les plus élevés." Cauchy donna en tout, dans ces Comptes rendus, 549 mémoires, sur des sujets embrassant "toutes les branches des sciences mathématiques, depuis la théorie des nombres et la géométrie pure jusqu'à l'astronomie et l'optique" (Valson, La vie et les travaux du baron Cauchy). Jusqu'à la publication des Œuvres complètes de Cauchy par Gauthier - Villars, (27 volumes publiés de 1882 à 1975), il fallait, pour retrouver le moindre énoncé du savant, feuilleter des volumes entiers et "perdre un temps précieux dans une perquisition fatigante" : par la réalisation de ce recueil, effectué avec méticulosité, Henri Viellard s'était compilé, en somme, un ensemble des plus précieux et des plus utiles pour tout ce que Cauchy avait produit ou rapporté au cours des années où il siégea à l'Académie. Les articles de Cauchy insérés dans les volumes des Comptes rendus de l'Académie des sciences occuperont la première série des Œuvres complètes, soit 12 volumes...

        Docket Book of Jonah Titus, Rhode Island Lawyer and Dorrite Attorney..

      1836. Docket Book of a Notable Nineteeth-Century Rhode Island Lawyer Who Took Part in the Dorr Rebellion [Manuscript]. [Titus, Jonah (1796-1876)]. [Docket Book of Jonah Titus, Rhode Island Lawyer and Dorrite Attorney General]. [Scituate, RI, May 1836-December 23, 1875]. [400] pp. Folio (13" x 8"). Reversed calf, black-stamped panels to boards, raised bands, black-stamped ornaments and lettering piece (reading "Ledger") to spine. Moderate rubbing and a few minor scuffs and stains to boards, heavier rubbing to extremities with wear to spine ends and corners. Light toning, text in small neat hand on 378 hand-numbered pages, entries on 8 other leaves at rear of text. * Titus, believed to be the first lawyer to establish a practice in Scituate, was a leader of the Rhode Island bar. He is remembered for his participation in the Dorr Rebellion of 1841-1842, an attempt to force broader democracy in Rhode Island by establishing a rival state government under "Governor" Thomas Wilson Dorr. Titus was Dorr's attorney general. The turbulence of that period is not reflected in this docket book, which lists memoranda of cases, services rendered and fees charged. Also listing personal expenses, this offers a fine perspective on the working life of a well-respected attorney with a thriving practice over a 39-year period.

        THE VILLAGE COQUETTES

      1836. A Comic Opera. In Two Acts. The Music by John Hullah. London: Richard Bentley, 1836. Bound in full tan calf with gilt paneled spine and leather labels, all page edges gilt. First Edition of Dickens's first play to be published (produced on the stage about two months after his "The Strange Gentleman," but published a year earlier).~Dickens's musical collaborator was John Hullah, who was Government Inspector of Musical Education. They had met early in 1835, after Hullah had set to music a portion of an opera called "The Gondoliers," the scene of which was laid in Venice. Dickens objected to writing the libretto on a foreign subject, and a compromise was effected which gave birth to "The Village Coquettes." The opera was accepted by Mr. Braham, manager of the new St. James's Theatre. It had its first presentation on December 6, 1836, with Braham himself in the cast... The play ran nineteen times in London, when it was transferred to Edinburgh and played under the management of Mr. Ramsay, a friend of Sir Walter Scott. [Eckel]~The 71-page book was originally issued in delicate grey boards, which are very seldom seen today. This copy was re-bound (without the boards) quite some time ago in full tan calf, with gilt paneled spine and red and green leather spine labels (subsequently re-backed, with the earlier spine laid back down). Condition is very good, the main flaw being that about half of the "Dickens" spine label has chipped away. Quite a scarce early Dickens item. Gimbel A25; Carr B525; Eckel pp 157-158. Provenance: bookplates of Robert C. May C.E. (of Orwell Lodge, Clapham Park, London), and of [William Proby, 5th] Earl of Carysfort [1836-1909].

        Major Ridge. A Cherokee Chief.

      Philadelphia: E.C. Biddle, 1836-44. Hand-colored lithograph. Folio (19½" X 14"). Very good. Mild overall age toning; several very small (¼") edge chips, all far removed from the image area. A handsome image from the first, folio-size edition of McKenney and Hall's reknowned "History of the Indian Tribes of North America, with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs," published in three volumes between 1836 and 1844. Containing 120 colored plates (based on oil paintings by Charles Bird King, most of which were destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian), this legendary trio is the major source for accurate images of many early Native American leaders. Later printings were reduced to an octavo size. Major Ridge was a leading foe of Thomas Jefferson's Indian removal plans, a noted Indian warrior, chief, judge and diplomat. A strong imprint with bold, fresh coloring. Scarce.

        L'ingénieux hidalgo Don Quichotte de la Manche

      Dubochet et Cie 1836 - - Dubochet et Cie, Paris 1836 - 1840, 744pp. et 758pp., relié. - Edition originale traduite par Louis Viardot et illustrée par Tony Johannot en premier tirage. Deux frontispices imprimés sur Chine, deux pages de titre gravées, et 800 grandes vignettes in-texte. Comme souvent, le second volume est de 1840. Cette particularité est en effet assez commune à l'édition, même si on s'explique mal comment l'éditeur a pu mélanger des tomes du tirage de 1836 à celui de 1840, à moins que les 2 tirages furent établis en même temps. Reliure en demi chagrin noir d'époque. Dos à faux nerfs ornés de filets gras et maigres, roulettes en queue et tête. Titre et tomaison dorés. Ensemble relativement frais, avec très peu de rousseurs, concentrées sur certains passages, notamment la préface. Quelques feuillets plus jaunis dans le tome I. Dans le Prologue au tome I, trace brune en marge interne d'une bande de papier (marque page) qui a été ôtée, sur 3 feuillets, allant s'estompant. Frottements sur les plats. Bon exemplaire, d'un bon tirage. Célèbre illustré romantique ; une des meilleures productions de Johannot, avec le Voyage où il vous plaira et le Roland furieux. Johannot est moins couru que ne l'est Grandville, sans doute parce qu'il est plus typiquement romantique, au sens de Hugo, à la fois doux et sentimental, puis fantasque et morbide jusqu'au grotesque. Il y a plus de mystère et d'effroi chez lui que chez son comparse. "Un des très beaux livres illustrés du XIXe" Vicaire. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition translated by Louis Viardot and illustrated by Tony Johannot First printing. Two headpieces printed on China, two engraved title pages and 800 large thumbnails in-text. As often, the second volume of 1840. This feature is actually quite common in publishing, even if we have difficulty understanding how the editor was able to mix volumes of the 1836 edition that of 1840, unless 2 runs were established simultaneously. Binding semi antique black shagreen. Back with false nerves decorated with fat and lean nets, wheels and tail head. Title and volume number gilded. All relatively fresh, with very little foxing, concentrated on certain passages, including the preface. A few yellowed sheets in Volume I. In the Prologue to Volume I, brown trace internal margins of a paper web (bookmark) that was taken away on 3 sheets, from fading. Good copy, a good draw. 744pp. et 758pp. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
