        Experimental Researches in Electricity.

      Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, London 1838 - Part I. Richard and John Taylor, London, 1838. Eleventh Series, pp. 1-40, 79-81; Twelfth Series, pp. 83-123; Thirteenth Series, pp. 125-168.

First Edition. Michael Faraday "was both one of the greatest physicist of the nineteenth century and one of the greatest experimentalist of all time." Unusually, for people with great genius, he was a late developer and had a high level of creativity and productivity throughout his later life. His conceptual imagination became most powerfully creative after the age of forty-five -- the period when these papers where written. "Although his discovery of the electric motor and the dynamo was almost entirely incidental to his theoretical discoveries, it laid the foundation of the modern electrical industry." (PMM, 308)"Between 1832 and 1852 Faraday published twenty-nine series of papers in the Philosophical Transactions under the title "Experimental researches in electricity"; it was through these papers that his major discoveries relating to electricity and magnetism were first published . These papers, along with pertinent papers and letters published in other scientific journals, were collected in three volumes published in 1839, 1844 and 1855. The collection encompasses the entire range of Faraday's remarkable achievement, including his discovery of electromagnetic induction, his demonstration of the identity of all formes of electricity, his first general theory of electricity as a function of interparticulate strain, and the last series of researches on magnetism, containing the germ of modern field theory, in which Faraday rejected his earlier model of the transmission of magnetic energy in favor of one locating the manifestion of magnetic energy in the field surrounding the magnet." (Norman 762). " Eleventh Series: ".[Faraday] concluded that the behavior of a dielectric is exactly the same as that of an electrolyte, up to the point at which the electrolyte breaks down under the electric stress. The polarized condition acquired by a dielectric when placed in an electric field forcibly recalled to Faraday the condition of magnetic polarization, and that is precisely the reason why he introduced his lines of electric force, defined as curves whose tangents at every point have the same direction as the electric intensity. [in] 1838, Faraday applied Poisson's theory of induced magnetism to the case of induction in dielectrics, contending that the particles of an insulting dielectric, whilst under induction may be compared to . a series of small insulated conductors. In the field of a charged sphere these little conductors would all be polar; if the sphere were discharged they would all return to their normal state." (Taton, A General History of the Sciences, pp. 199-200)Faraday reflected on these observations, especially on the fact that contiguous particles were capable of transmitting step by step all those actions which appear to take place at a distance. Eventually, he reached the prescient view that the ultimate particles of matter might well be nothing other than the center of forces, forces being the constituent elements of matter. " Twelfth and Thirteenth Series: Faraday devoted these two series to electric discharges in the "vacuum" and these extended studies of the conductivity of gases sparked off a revolution in physics. He noticed that the negative pole became covered with a continuous glow and that it was separated from the positive pole by what has become known as "Faraday's Dark Space". Though Faraday had to leave it at that, because the air pumps then in use were incapable of evacuating vessels to the required extent, he predicted that the results connected with the different conditions of positive and negative discharge would have great influence on the "philosophy [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

An appealing copy of a rare title. * Second and best edition. "The Carsons had been married nine years when John Carson left home in 1810. Not having heard from him for two years, his wife married [Richard] Smith. Carson returned and, in trying to dispossess Smith of his wife and home, was shot by Smith. The judge practically directed Smith's conviction and he was hanged. Mrs. Carson, who was a rugged individual in her own right, tried to kidnap the governor to save Smith. After his execution she joined a gang of counterfeiters and subsequently died in prison" (McDade). This account went through 2 editions, both in 1838. The second edition is better because it contains additional material, as indicated by the title. Both editions are rare. OCLC locates no copies of the first edition, 4 of the second (American Antiquarian Society, New-York Historical Society, University of Michigan, Yale University) McDade, The Annals of Murder 888.

        Le Cuisinier Royal Seizieme Edition, augmentee de douze cents article nouveau [alternate title Le Cuisinier Imperial]

      Paris: Gustave Barba, Editeur du Cabinet Litteraire, 1838. Octavo, 616 pages. Illustrated with 7 engravings. The sixteenth of reportedly thirty-two editions, this was originally published under the title, Le Cuisiner Imperial and was changed to Royal with the reinstatement of the Bourbons. Viard, who called himself "Homme de Bouche," is said to have been chef de cuisine for both Louis XVI and Napolean. This remains unclear. What we do know is that this work was one of the great cookbooks of the era, and that it competed with Careme's L'Art de la Cuisine Française for space on French kitchen shelves throughout much of the 19th century. Le Cuisinier Royal was expanded in the 1920s by Mm. Fouret and Delan. This edition includes a detailed index, seven plates of table settings with menus for entertaining, and additional writings on wines by M. Grignon and M. Pierrhugues. This copy quite foxed throughout, and with some general soiling and wear to the text block. A few pages untrimmed. Still, complete and sound. In one-quarter brown calf with marbled paper covered boards. Less than very good. With three manuscript recipes in a contemporary hand, tipped into the rear with wax.

        Notice Historique sur Hôtel Carnavalet Paris Exemplaire unique

      Paris, Chez l'Auteur, Hôtel Carnavalet, et chez les principaux libraires, 1838 - NOTICE HISTORIQUE SUR L'HÔTEL CARNAVALET, par J. Verdot, ancien élève de l'Ecole Normale, licencié de la Faculté des Lettres, Chef d'Institution. Paris, Chez l'Auteur, Hôtel Carnavalet, et chez les principaux libraires, 1838 [Notes et Additions manuscrites, 1865] 1 volume in-12 (18 x 11 cm) de 71 pages (exemplaire entièrement interfolié, pratiquement tous les feuillets comportent des additions et corrections de la main de l'auteur). Reliure de l'époque (1840) demi-veau brun, dos à faux-nerfs ornés à la manière d'un Thouvenin ou d'un Vogel (reliure non signée). Très bon état, reliure solide et décorative en dépit d'une petite fente en tête du mors supérieur et de quelques éraflures sans gravité. Intérieur très frais. Petit mouillure angulaire au titre imprimé (en marge). ÉDITION ORIGINALE. EXEMPLAIRE DE L'AUTEUR ENTIÈREMENT ANNOTÉ EN VUE DE LA PUBLICATION DE LA SECONDE EDITION PARUE 27 ANS PLUS TARD EN 1865 CHEZ AUBRY. Une des notes ajoutées par l'auteur indique : "Au mois d'août 1846, M. Verdot, Chef de l'Institution qui occupe depuis 1829 l'hôtel Carnavalet, devint à son tour le propriétaire de cette intéressante maison. C'est dire assez qu'il avait suivi avec amour sa pensée première. Il a donc acquis le droit d'ajouter aujourd'hui un chapitre à cette notice dont la première édition depuis longtemps épuisée remontre à vingt sept ans, en octobre 1838." (note manuscrite). Ces notes et additions manuscrites ont servi à l'établissement de la seconde édition de 1865 donnée par le libraire Aubry. Cette nouvelle édition a été tirée à petit nombre et est recherchée pour les 9 tirages photographiques qu'elle contient.Au moment de son acquisition par M. Verdot en 1846, l'Hôtel Carnavalet était menacé d'être détruit. M. Verdot en sera propriétaire de 1846 à 1866 date à laquelle il fut racheté par la ville de Paris. L' Institution Verdot accueille des élèves, qui suivent en demi-pensionnaire dans la journée les cours du Collège Charlemagne, collège qui ne dispose pas d'internat. Puis en fin d'après-midi, les élèves suivent à la pension des répétitions et des enseignements complémentaires fournis par des professeurs qui y arrondissent leur salaire. Ces élèves bénéficient au réfectoire, contre une rétribution assez élevée, du vivre [d'où l'expression péjorative de « marchand de soupe » appliquée parfois aux chefs d'institution] et au dortoir du logement. Jean Maurice Verdot a du succès. En témoignent les anciens élèves, le plus souvent scolarisés à Charlemagne. C'est Madame de Sévigné qui la première donne ses lettres de noblesse à cet Hôtel Carnavalet qu'elle occupe jusqu'à ses derniers jours. Jean Goujon, Hardouin Mansart, etc., ont laissé leur marque de décorateurs-architectes. Ce sera sur l'initiative du Baron Haussmann dès 1866 que ce majestueux bâtiment devient Musée Historique de la Ville de Paris. Il ouvre au public en 1880. Du 2 octobre 2016 à 2020, le musée est fermé pour rénovation complète et création d'espaces événementiels et de restauration. DOCUMENT IMPORTANT POUR L'HISTOIRE DE CARNAVALET.

        Journal historique des événemens [sic] arrivés à Saint Eustache, pendant la rébellion du comté du Lac des Deux Montagnes. Depuis les soulèvements commencés à la fin de novembre jusqu'au moment où la tranquillité fut parfaitement rétablie. Par

      Publié par John Jones,, M., 1838 - 96 p., 14,5 cm. Edition originale excessivement rare! Généralement attribué à l'abbé Jacques Paquin, curé de Saint-Eustache. Certains toutefois pensent que ce pourrait être l'œuvre de l'abbé Desève, vicaire de la paroisse. Paquin s'opposait farouchement au mouvement patriote. Bien que menacé, il refusera d'adhérer à la révolte populaire et prônera le retour à la paix sous le régime établi. Se tenant à l'écart, il sera témoin du passage des rebelles et de la destruction qu'ils provoquèrent. Plus tard, il verra à disculper ses paroissiens, voulant protéger ces derniers et surtout s'attirer les bonnes grâces des autorités en vue de la reconstruction de son église, détruite au cours des événements. Voir la notice biographique à son sujet dans le «Dictionnaire biographique du Canada», tome VII, pp. 733-735. Rel. muette de toile ancienne (cote au plat sup., cachets sur gardes et sur p. 2, 57 et 96, sign. ancienne sur garde, traces de mouillures au haut des pages). [Attributes: Hard Cover]
