        Historical and Literary Curiosities, Consisting of fac-similes of original documents; scenes of remarkable events and interesting localities; and the birth-places, residences, portraits, and monuments of eminent literary characters; with a variety of reliques and antiquities connected with the same subjects.

      London: Henry G. Bohn, 1840 - Quarto (275 x 205 mm). Contemporary tree calf, spine richly gilt to compartments with black label, roll-tooled gilt border to covers, marbled endpapers and edges. Bookplate of Edward Nicholas Hurt to pastedown. Foot of front joint just beginning to split, occasional very light foxing to some pages, else an excellent copy. Illustrated throughout with engraved plates, some with tissue guards. First edition in book form, previously serialised in eight parts from 1836 to 1840. The engraver, Charles John Smith (1803–1838) died after the fifth part, and thereafter the production was finished by Henry George Bohn (1796–1884). The book is illustrated throughout with facsimiles of historical manuscripts and depictions of notable places. The collection constitutes an odd mix, with the 48 historical items included covering everything from the will of Napoleon to the signature of Shakespeare. Nonetheless it was an important publication, and for many of the documents it was the first time they appeared in print. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Entrance to the Chou-Kiang or Canton River from the Ouer Islands to Linten. Surveyed by Capt. D. Ross Bombay Marine, 1815.

      Sold by R. B. Bates, Agent for the Admiralty Charts, 21 Poultry, March 14th, 1840., London, - Rare chart of the mouth of the Pearl River and Hong Kong Engraved chart, backed on japan paper, a few small tears to margins, skilfully repaired. This rare chart covers the mouth of the Pearl River from Macao Island to Hong Kong and the New Territories. The survey was carried out by Captain Daniel Ross of the Bombay Marine in 1815, and was at the time the most detailed and accurate chart of Hong Kong available. It was reissued in 1840 in order to aid British naval vessels during the First Opium War (1839-1842). It predates the formal seizure of Hong Kong by Commodore Bremmer in 1841 and Belcher's subsequent 1843 chart of the island. It is most likely that Ross's surveys, together with Belcher's as yet unpublished 1841 manuscripts, were used to negotiate the 1842 Treaty of Nanking. The Treaty formally ended the first Opium War and ceded Hong Kong to the British. The charts would later be used by Captain Richard Collinson during his great survey of the China Coast, who found them to be extremely accurate. In 1807, Daniel Ross was tasked by the East India Company to survey the China Seas. He spent nine years surveying the coast between 1807 and 1816, and then spent a further four years charting the seas between 1816 and 1820. On his return to England in 1821 he was rewarded with a cash sum of £1,500 from the East India Company, for his tireless work out in the Far East. He would later appear before a government Select Committee investigating the possibilities of increasing the Britain's trade with China. Although acknowledged at the time, Ross's survey, was largely forgotten until the First Opium War (1839 - 1842), when his work was used to serve as the basis for this updated chart. The additions to the chart were the work of I. A. Douglas, who had surveyed the waters in 1839, at the outset of the First Opium War, and whose name appears on the chart, just north of Lantao Island. Several geographical places are mentioned on Hong Kong Island and the New Territories, including, 'Bluff Point', 'Woody Islet', 'Tytam', 'Fishhouse', 'Pirate Bay', and 'Junk Town'. This chart is exceedingly rare, we are only able to trace one institutional example: The British Library. British Library Maps SEC.13.(1263.). Charting the Pearl River Delta (Hong Kong Maritime Museum), page 16.

Erste deutsche Ausgabe mit dem meist fehlenden 40-seitigen Register. - "The 'History' had no rivals in its day and remains, despite unevenness, one of the important surveys of science from the Greeks to the nineteenth century. Whewell appreaciated the importance of Greek science, especially astronomy, but showed typical disregard for the contributions of medieval scientists. His assessment of the importance of contributions of such major figures of Galileo and Descartes suffers from a heavy intrusion of religious and philosophical biases. But his treatment of Newton and other modern mathematical scientists is fair and sometimes brilliant, and is based throughout upon detailed considerations of texts" (DSB). - Titel gestempelt.

Die gelegentlichen Korrekturen im Text und ein Vergleich mit einem online verfügbaren Text von Schinz belegen, dass es sich um seine Handschrift handelt. - Der aus Zürich stammende Schinz (1817-1887) studierte in Königsberg bei Bessel und Jacobi, promovierte dort mit der vorliegenden, anscheinend nicht gedruckten Arbeit und wirkte später als Professor für Physik und Mathematik in Bern, Chur und Aarau. Die Arbeit beschäftigt sich mit dem Verhalten von Flüssigkeiten in engen Röhren, in denen sie gegen die Schwerkraft aufsteigen können, was etwa bei Pflanzen den Wassertransport bis in die Blätter hinein ermöglicht. Schinz untersucht dieses Verhalten sehr detailliert in Abhängigkeit von der Temperatur und dem Durchmesser der Röhre für die Flüssigkeiten Wasser, Terpentinöl, Zitronenöl, Schwefeläther und absoluter Alkohol. - Papierbedingt leicht gebräunt.

        Mid 19th century Paris Peep Show

      Paris (?): n.p. n.d., ca. 1840? Four engraved handcolored scenes cut out, plus the front and the back, and positioned via paper bellows. The front board depicts the Arc du Carrousel but has three peep holes in it. Looking through the central peep hole one sees the Tuileries Gardens, going right up the Avenue des Champs-Elysées to the Arc de Triomphe, and with statues, people, horse-drawn carriages. The two side peep holes give different views. 5 by 7½ inches. When fully extended it is over 24 inches in length. Front panel with the 'peep holes' is soiled. At some time the bellows were neatly replaced. Overall, though, it is in very good condition, with the individual scenes in lovely condition. Very good.

        Don Quixote de la Mancha.

      Joseph Thomas, London 1840 - Finely bound example of Cervantes' masterpiece. Octavo, 3 volumes bound in full morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, gilt tooling to the front and rear panels, gilt turn-ins, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. With eight illustrations from design by Tony Johannot. Translated from the Spanish by Charles Jarvis. In fine condition. An exceptional example. Don Quixote tells the tale of a man so entranced by reading about the chivalrous romantic ideals touted in books that he decides to take up his sword and become a knight-errant himself, with the aims of defending the helpless and warding off the wicked. With his somewhat confused laborer-turned-squire, Sancho Panza, they roam the world together and have adventures that have haunted reader's imaginations for nearly four hundred years. Don Quixote is generally recognized as the first modern novel. Over those years, it has had an incredible influence on thousands of writers, from Dickens to Faulkner, who once said he reread it once a year, "just as some people read the Bible". Vladamir Nabokov is quoted as saying, "Don Quixote is greater today than he was in Cervantes's womb. [He] looms so wonderfully above the skyline of literature, a gaunt giant on a lean nag, that the book lives and will live through [his] sheer vitality. He stands for everything that is gentle, forlorn, pure, unselfish, and gallant. The parody has become a paragon." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Geometrische Untersuchungen zur Theorie der Parallellinien.

      Berlin: G. Fincke, 1840. First edition, very rare, of the first complete account of Lobachevsky's revolutionary discovery of non-Euclidean geometry to be published in a Western European language. It was through this book that the mathematical world outside Russia became aware of Lobachevsky's work. "Geometrische Untersuchungen zur Theorie der Parallellinien, which he published in Berlin in 1840, is the best exposition of his new geometry; following its publication, in 1842, Lobachevsky was, on the recommendation of Gauss, elected to the Göttingen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften" (DSB). "Cet ouvrage est un vrai chef-d'oeuvre de la littérature mathématique" (Piccard, p. 19). Lobachevsky sent Gauss a copy of the present work, and Gauss's opinion of it is recorded in a letter, dated 28 November 1846, written to his colleague the astronomer H. C. Schumacher: "In developing the subject, the author followed a road different from the one I took myself; Lobachevsky carried out the task in a masterly fashion and in a truly geometric spirit. I consider it a duty to call your attention to this book, since I have no doubt that it will give you a tremendous pleasure." "The researches that culminated in the discovery of non-Euclidean geometry arose from unsuccessful attempts to 'prove' the axiom of parallels in Euclidean geometry. This postulate asserts that through any point there can be drawn one and only one straight line parallel to a given straight line. Although this statement was not regarded as self-evident and its derivation from the other axioms of geometry was repeatedly sought, no one openly challenged it as an accepted truth of the universe until Lobatchewsky published the first non-Euclidean geometry ... In Lobatchewsky's geometry an infinity of parallels can be drawn through a given point that never intersect a given straight line ... His fundamental paper was read to his colleagues in Kazan in 1826 but he did not publish the results until 1829-30 when a series of five papers appeared in the Kazan University Courier ... He amplified his findings (still in Russian) in 1836-8 under the title 'New Elements of Geometry, with a Complete Theory of Parallels'. In 1840 he published a brief summary in Berlin under the title Geometrische Untersuchungen zur Theorie der Parallellinien" (PMM). The present work, like all of Lobachevsky's publications, is very rare. OCLC lists just seven copies in the US. No copies on ABPC/RBH. "In his early lectures on geometry, Lobachevsky himself attempted to prove the fifth postulate [i.e., the axiom of parallels]; his own geometry is derived from his later insight that a geometry in which all of Euclid's axioms except the fifth postulate hold true is not in itself contradictory. He called such a system "imaginary geometry," proceeding from an analogy with imaginary numbers. If imaginary numbers are the most general numbers for which the laws of arithmetic of real numbers prove justifiable, then imaginary geometry is the most general geometrical system. It was Lobachevsky's merit to refute the uniqueness of Euclid's geometry, and to consider it as a special case of a more general system. "In Lobachevskian geometry, given a line a and a point A not on it, one can draw through A more than one coplanar line not intersecting a. It follows that one can draw infinitely many such lines which, taken together, constitute an angle of which the vertex is A. The two lines, b and c, bordering that angle are called parallels to a and the lines contained between them are called ultraparallels, or diverging lines; all other lines through A intersect a. If one measures the distance between two parallel lines on a secant equally inclined to each, then, as Lobachevsky proved, that distance decreases indefinitely, tending to zero, as one moves farther out from A ... A comparison of Euclidean and Lobachevskian geometry yields several immediate and interesting contrasts [notably that] for all triangles in the Lobachevskian plane the sum of the angles is less than two right angles" (DSB). In Euclidean geometry the sum of the angles of a triangle equals two right angles, and in spherical geometry it is always greater. Of particular interest are the curves called 'horocycles.' These are the limiting curves of the circles that share a tangent at a given point, as the radius of the circles tends to infinity. In Euclidean geometry this limiting curve would be a straight line, but in Lobachevskian geometry it is a new kind of curve. By rotating the horocyle around the line perpendicular to the tangent, Lobachevsky obtained a 'horosphere' and he proved the remarkable fact that the geometry on a horosphere is Euclidean, so that Euclidean geometry is in a sense contained within non-Euclidean geometry. "Working from the geometry (and, hence, trigonometry) of the Euclidean plane on horospheres, Lobachevsky derived trigonometric formulas for triangles in the Lobachevskian plane ... Comparing these formulas with those of spherical trigonometry on a sphere of radius r, ... Lobachevsky discovered that the formulas of trigonometry in the space he defined can be derived from formulas of spherical trigonometry if the sides of triangles are regarded as purely imaginary numbers or, put another way, if the radius r of the sphere is considered as purely imaginary ... In this Lobachevsky saw evidence of the non-contradictory nature of the geometry he had discovered" (ibid.). Further evidence of the 'imaginary' nature of Lobachevskian geometry was found in the formula for the area A of a triangle in terms of the sum S of its angles: A = r2(π - S). If r is replaced by r√-1, this becomes the formula for the area of a triangle on a sphere of radius r: A = r2(S - π). "Lobachevsky recognized the universal character of his new geometry in naming it "pangeometry." He nevertheless thought it necessary to establish experimentally which geometry--his or Euclid's-- actually occurs in the real world. To this end he made a series of calculations of the sums of the angles of triangles of which the vertices are two diametrically opposed points on the orbit of the earth and one of the fixed stars Sirius, Rigel, or 28 Eridani. Having established that the deviation of these sums from π is no greater than might be due to errors in observation, he concluded that the geometry of the real world might be considered as Euclidean, whence he also found "a rigorous proof of the theorem of parallels" as set out in his work of 1826. In explaining his calculations (in O nachalakh geometrii ["On the Principles of Geometry"]), Lobachevsky noted that it is possible to find experimentally the deviation from π of the sum of the angles of cosmic triangles of great size; in a later work (Novye nachala geometrii s polnoi teoriei parallelnykh ["New Principles of Geometry With a Complete Theory of Parallels"]) he moved to the opposite scale and suggested that his geometry might find application in the "intimate sphere of molecular attractions" ... "In [these] earlier papers Lobachevsky had defined imaginary geometry on an a priori basis, beginning with the supposition that Euclid's fifth postulate does not hold true and explaining the principle tenets of his new geometry without defining it (although he did describe the results of his experiment to prove his theorem of parallels). In Voobrazhaemaya geometriya ("Imaginary Geometry"), however, he built up the new geometry analytically, proceeding from its inherent trigonometrical formulas and considering the derivation of these formulas from spherical trigonometry to guarantee its internal consistency. In the sequel to that paper, Primenenie voobrazhaemoi geometrii k nekotorym integralam ("Application of Imaginary Geometry to Certain Integrals"), he applied geometrical considerations in Lobachevskian space to the calculation of known integrals (in order to make sure that their application led to valid results), then to new, previously uncalculated integrals" ... "Lobachevsky's work was little heralded during his lifetime. M. V. Ostrogradsky, the most famous mathematician of the St. Petersburg Academy, for one, did not understand Lobachevsky's achievement, and published an uncomplimentary review of O nachalakh geometrii ("On the Principles of Geometry"); the magazine Syn otechestva soon followed his lead, and in 1834 issued a pamphlet ridiculing Lobachevsky's paper. Although Gauss, who had received a copy of the Geometrische Untersuchungen from Lobachevsky, spoke to him flatteringly of the book, studied Russian especially to read his works in their original language, and supported his election to the Göttingen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften, he never publicly commented on Lobachevsky's discovery" ... "[An] important development of Lobachevsky's geometry came from Riemann, whose address of 1854, Uber die Hypothesen, welche der Geometrie zu Grunde liegen, was published in 1866. Developing Gauss's idea of intrinsic geometry of a surface, Riemann presented a notion of multidimensional curved space (now called Riemannian space) ... It subsequently, then, became clear that Lobachevskian space is a Riemannian space of constant negative curvature ... "The presence of specifically Lobachevskian geometry is felt in modern physics in the isomorphism of the group of motions of Lobachevskian space and the Lorentz group. This isomorphism opens the possibility of applying Lobachevskian geometry to the solution of a number of problems of relativistic quantum physics. Within the framework of the general theory of relativity, the problem of the geometry of the real world, to which Lobachevsky had devoted so much attention, was solved; the geometry of the real world is that of variable curvature, which is on the average much closer to Lobachevsky's than to Euclid's" (ibid.). Lobachevsky's first lecture on non-Euclidean geometry, "Exposition succincte des principes de la géométrie avec une démonstration rigoureuse du théorème des parallèles," was delivered (in French) to the Kazan department of physics and mathematics at a meeting held on 23 February 1826. French was the language of scientific discourse in Russia but Lobachevsky strongly advocated the use of the Russian language and published his first four works in his native tongue: O nachalakh geometrii (1829-30); Novye nachala geometrii s polnoi teoriei parallelnykh (1835-38); Voobrazhaemaya geometriya (1835); Primenenie voobrazhaemoi geometrii k nekotorym integralam (1836). The 1835 work was revised and translated into French by Lobachevsky and published as 'Géométrie imaginaire' (Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik 17 (1837), 295-320). This was the first publication on non-Euclidean geometry in a Western European language, but it dealt only with Lobachevskian trigonometry, not with the underlying geometry. His other early works were not translated until the last years of the 19th century. Thus, Geometrische Untersuchungen (1840) is the first work in a Western European language to treat both the synthetic foundations of non-Euclidean geometry and the Lobachevskian trigonometry. It was translated into French in 1866 by Jules Hoüel and into English in 1891 by George Bruce Halsted. Lobachevsky published a final summary work in Russian, Pangeometria, as part of a volume celebrating the jubilee of the University of Kazan in 1855; it was translated into French in the following year. "Lobachevsky was the son of Ivan Maksimovich Lobachevsky, a clerk in a land-surveying office, and Praskovia Aleksandrovna Lobachevskaya. In about 1800 the mother moved with her three sons to Kazan, where Lobachevsky and his brothers were soon enrolled in the Gymnasium on public scholarships. In 1807 Lobachevsky entered Kazan University, where he studied under the supervision of Martin Bartels, a friend of Gauss, and, in 1812, received the master's degree in physics and mathematics. In 1814 he became an adjunct in physical and mathematical sciences and began to lecture on various aspects of mathematics and mechanics. He was appointed extraordinary professor in 1814 and professor ordinarius in 1822, the same year in which he began an administrative career as a member of the committee formed to supervise the construction of the new university buildings. He was chairman of that committee in 1825, twice dean of the department of physics and mathematics (in 1820-1 and 1823-5), librarian of the university (1825-35), rector (1827-46), and assistant trustee for the whole of the Kazan educational district (1846-55). "In recognition of his work Lobachevsky was in 1837 raised to the hereditary nobility; he designed his own familial device (which is reproduced on his tombstone), depicting Solomon's seal, a bee, an arrow, and a horseshoe, to symbolize wisdom, diligence, alacrity, and happiness, respectively. He had in 1832 made a wealthy marriage, to Lady Varvara Aleksivna Moisieva, but his family of seven children and the cost of technological improvements for his estate left him with little money upon his retirement from the university, although he received a modest pension. A worsening sclerotic condition progressively affected his eyesight, and he was blind in his last years" (ibid.). PMM 293; Engel 13; [O nachalakh geometrii]; Poggendorff I, 1482; Sommerville p. 29.
