DE MORGAN, Augustus.
London: Longman, Orme, Brown, Green, & Longmans; and John Taylor, 1838 - Octavo (160 x 95 mm). Contemporary half calf, richly gilt spine, brown morocco twin labels, marbled sides, endpapers and edges. Binding slightly rubbed, offsetting from silk page-marker at pp. 148-9, touch of foxing to engraved title. An attractive copy. Engraved title vignette by Edward Francis Finden after Henry Corbould (showing a female figure, a sextant at her feet, surrounded by barrels and packaged goods, watching ships on a stormy sea). First edition, issued as a volume in Dionysius Lardner's Cabinet Cyclopædia; another edition followed in 1841. De Morgan (1806-1871) was one of the founders of modern mathematical logic and An Essay on Probabilities is "a volume described by [Irving] Fisher as 'the first [English] work of importance' after the publication of de Moivre's The Doctrine of Chances [1718], and by [De Morgan's editor, Peter] Heath as a first-rate elementary text book. The book is most interesting to read and can be well recommended" (Andrew I. Dale, A History of Inverse Probability: From Thomas Bayes to Karl Pearson, 1999, 8.4). Sir Leslie Stephen writes in ODNB that "his book [had] a good reception in the assurance industry. Indeed, during 1831–6 when he was absent from the university [De Morgan was professor of mathematics at London University], he often worked as an actuary; he also contributed to the Insurance Record". Goldsmiths' 30437. [Attributes: First Edition]

MCKENNEY, Thomas L. (1785-1859) and James HALL (1793-1868)
F.W. Greenough, Philadelphia, 1838. Lithograph "Drawn Printed and Coloured at J.T. Bowen's Lithographic Establishment", after a C.B.King portrait painted in 1825. In excellent condition apart from some light off-setting in the plate. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America'. A venerated Yuchi chief, Timpoochee Barnard had a Scotish father and Yuchi mother. He was a commissioned major who valiantly fought under General Jackson against the Creeks in the 1814 Battle of Callabee Creek. Major Barnard's distinguished military career continued with his gallant participation in the 1818 Seminole War and the battle at Econaffinnah or Natural Bridge of the same year. After travelling to Washington to contest the Indian Springs Treaty of 1825, he settled near Fort Mitchell, where he remained until his death. Of Timpoochee, President Jackson once remarked to his son, "A braver man than your father never lived." Also known as the Choya'ha or Tsoya'ha, meaning 'children of the sun', the Yuchi tribe inhabited the Southeastern region of the United States. They had been practically eliminated by the Creeks and Cherokees and lived uneasily in their midst. McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroy … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ehrenberg, C. G.
Leipzig, Leopold Voss, 1838. Folio (46.0 x 35.5 cm). Title page and 64 hand-coloured engraved plate. 20th century brown blind rexine.l The rare atlas, with beautiful, detailed, and finely coloured engravings. "Ehrenberg's great contribution to biology was his work on infusiora, the results of which were published in a number of brief essays and afterwards in the important and splendidly got up work entitled 'Die Infusionsthierchens'... printed in 1838. The result of this and other works of his was that the number of known Infusiora was considerably increased, and their classification essentially advanced" (Nordenskiöld). "Infusoria is a collective term for minute aquatic creatures such as ciliates, euglenoids, protozoa, unicellular algae and small invertebrates that exist in freshwater ponds. In modern formal classifications, the term is considered obsolete; the microorganisms previously included in the Infusoria are mostly assigned to the kingdom Protista which itself is a polyphyletic assemblage of groups" (Wikipedia). The illustrations include, amongst others, many plants (i.e. chlorophyll bearing organisms), diatoms, and tiny crustaceans. Plates evenly toned and unobtrusively micro-speckled. Small chip to the lower outer corner of one plate. The binding is strong but simple. A good, complete copy of this rare atlas. Garison & Morton, 111; Nissen ZBI, 1244; Nordenskiöld, 427.

Robert, E. [Gaimard]
Paris, Arthus Bertrand, 1838-1840. Two parts in one. Large 8vo (22.7 x 15.1 cm). Title page (to the text, dated 1840), xi, 469 pp.; second title page (to the atlas, dated 1838), [ii] pp., 36 lithographed plates. Contemporary quarter morocco over marbled boards. Spine rich gilt. Marbled endpapers. Speckled edges. A very rare work by the French geologist Eugène Robert (1806-1882) on the geology of, mainly, Iceland with fine lithographed plates of volcanos, glaciers, and other geological features. Robert was perhaps the first to observe the geology of Iceland with a trained scientific eye. He is perhaps better known for his other "northern" geological work, which formed part of the Voyages de la Commission Scientifique du Nord en Scandinavie, en Laponie, au Spitzberg et aux Feroë (1852), but the Iceland part is much rarer, not appearing in Ward & Carozzi, who do list the later, 1852 work (as from 1845, with a query) and wrongly recorded 1879 as the year of his death. The title page mentions another goal of the expedition, namely to trace another French research vessel, the Lilloise, which vanished in 1833 in the waters between Greenland and Iceland. This part of the expedition was unsuccessful and it is still a mystery how, when, and where the Lilloise disappeared. Small old stamp on the title pages and plate versos (not shining through). Unobtrusive, very light traces of off-setting to about five plates, otherwise a very good, clean copy. Nissen ZBI, 1468 (under Gaimard). Cat. BM(NH) p. 607 (under France, Commission Scientifique du Nord); Ward and Carozzi, 1885-1886 (not this … [Click Below for Full Description]

Joseph Franz KAISER (1786–1863?).
Vienna: Lithogr. Rumpold - Jos. Fr. Kaiser, 1838. Lithograph (restored folds slightly age-toned with tiny repaired holes and tears, small tears in margins) 48,5 x 58 cm (19 x 22.8 inches). A very rare separately published early lithographed map shows Graz in Styria, Austria, and its surroundings. The map was made by an Austrian map maker Joseph Franz Kaiser (1786–1863?), wo was experimenting with early lithographs. He was also an author of very rare folding globes. The map shows Graz in 1838, in the time of its quick industrial evolution, when numerous new factories were built. The lithographer Rumpold was a printer and lithographer, based in Vienna, who was experimenting with different printing techniques. Very rare - no known examples on the market or in the institutions. One example from 1825 in the University Library of Prague. This 1838 edition of the map is slighty different of the 1825 edition. Added were some new names of the factories, which developped in the previous 13 years.

Dugès Antoine-Louis
Louis Castel, Montpellier, 1838-39. 3 volumes reliure demi toile bleue, tome 1 : 526 p. et 6 planches , tome 2 : 636 p. et 12 planches tome 3 : 494 p. frontispices en tome 1 et 3 (un portrait de Dugès). Les trois dernières planches du tome 2 sont trouées, rare rousseurs. DUGÈS (Antoine-Louis), médecin et physiologiste français, membre de l'Académie des sciences, né à Mézières (Ardennes) en 1797, mort en 1838. Reçu docteur en 1821, il devint professeur d'accouchements à la Faculté de Montpellier. Il s'occupa d'abord avec succès des accouchements, puis de toutes les branches des sciences médicales, sur lesquelles il a laissé des travaux lumineux. Dans un Essai physiologico-pathologique sur la nature de la fièvre, il a tenté une fusion entre les doctrines de Broussais, de Cullen, de Brown, de Darwin et de l'école hippocratique ; son Mémoire sur la conformité organique dans l'échelle animale fut le signal d'un remaniement des classifications zoologiques; en 1834, des Recherches sur l'ostéologie et lamyologie des batraciens à leurs différents âges, lui valurent une couronne de l'Institut ; enfin un Traité de physiologie comparée de l'homme et des animaux , fut son testament scientifique. Ce livre abonde en aperçus ingénieux, en expériences entièrement neuves. On a encore de Dugès, outre de nombreux articles dans les ouvrages et les recueils scientifiques : Recherches sur les maladies les plus importantes et les moins connues des enfants nouveau-né; Pratique des accouchements, Manuel d'obstétrique ; De l'influence des sciences médicales accessoires sur les progrès de la chirurgie … [Click Below for Full Description]

Various Authors
James Pattie, 4 Brydges Street, Covent Garden, 1838. Thick 16mo. Leather spine and corners, and tooled paper boards. First play is damaged but not unreadable, with burn at front edge extending through the introductory material. One page is chipped. Other than occasional chips and tears the text is in remarkable condition for the penny publications of the era. The whole is an extensive collection of short one, two and three act plays, published in 1838 (and perhaps later) by James Pattie, Covent Garden, during the heyday of the 'penny dreadful'. They are an edgy lot, with some crude language and humor, several written by the 'comedians' themselves. The plays were performed in various (Covent Garden? ) theatres, many in the ROYAL CITY OF LONDON THEATRE, though their publication appears to predate the ostensible date of the theatre's name change in 1847. One review reads: "The City of London is an especial favorite of ours. This theatre, which stands pre-eminently unrivalled as a minor house, has always held out to the public those attractions which have never failed to gratify the prevailing tast for melodramas, burletta, and petite-coedy, no so much the rage". Each play is published with the names of the actors with parts, "as performed at" a specific theatre, "To which are added, original remarks, sketches, memoirs, costume, characters, exits, entrances and general directions". Most of the plays are "embellished with an engraving, from a Drawing taken in the Theatre during representation", a drawing which acts as frontispiece, dividing each one and two act play from the nex … [Click Below for Full Description]
