        History of England

      [London], 1840. [London], 1840 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An absolutely tiny, perfectly formed miniature History of England. Some pages, including the title page,are absent from both the beginning and end of the book but the work appears to examine the life of each British monarch from William the Conqueror to Queen Victoria. The latter is mentioned on the final page - adhered to the rear endpaper - with the words her accession was hailed with more than ordinary enthusiasm and the work ends with may her reign be prosperous, perhaps suggesting the publication of this work coincided closely with her coronation. Each monarch&#39;s biography is accompanied by a charming stylised portrait. Condition: In a full morocco binding. Externally, rather smart with very light shelfwear only. Internally, text block detached from boards but in itself is firmly bound. Pages are browned to extremities and show some handling marks, otherwise clean. Overall: POOR, due to being incomplete, but externally VERY GOOD INDEED..

        Master Humphrey&#39;s Clock

      - London - Chapman and Hall, 1840. - London - Chapman and Hall, 1840 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. Master Humphrey&#39;s Clock by Charles Dickens with illustrations by George Catermole and Hablot Browne. First edition in book formIn three volumes complete. Master Humphrey&#39;s Clock was a weekly periodical edited and written entirely by Charles Dickens and published from April 4, 1840 to December 4, 1841. It contained both short stories followed by two novels:The Old Curiosity Shop and Barnaby Rudge. Some of the short stories act as frame stories to the novels so the ordering of publication is important. Although Dickens&#39; original artistic intent was to keep the short stories and the novels together, he himself cancelled Master Humphrey&#39;s Clock before 1848, and described in a preface to The Old Curiosity Shop that he wished the story to not be tied down to the miscellany it began within. Most later anthologies published the short stories and the novels separately. However, the short stories and the novels were published in 1840 in three bound volumes under the title Master Humphrey&#39;s Clock, which retains the full and correct ordering of texts as they originally appeared. The Old Curiosity Shop and Barnaby Rudge were not publisher separately until later 1841. The illustrations in these volumes were by George Catermole and Hablot Browne, better known as Phiz. Previous owner&#39;s ink inscription to recto of frontispiece to volume two. With a newspaper clipping inserted to volume one and a concert leaflet dated 1901 inserted to volume one. Condition: Rebound in cloth. Externally, in a lovely condition with only the odd very slight mark to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Bright but with occasional slight foxing and handling marks. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        On the construction of life-tables, illustrated by a new life-table. . .

      1840 - Farr, William (1807-83). On the construction of life-tables, illustrated by a new life-table of the healthy districts of England. In Philosophical Transactions 149, pt. 2 (1859): 837-78. Folding table and tables in text, including one typeset by the Scheutz calculator. Original printed wrappers. Whole number. [16], 493-931 [1], 16pp., 16 plates. 300 x 230 mm. (uncut and unopened). FIne. First edition. Farr's preliminary report, describing the use of the Scheutz Engine no. 3 to prepare life tables, was published five years before his English Life Table. Farr, a pioneer in the quantitative study of morbidity and mortality, was chief statistician of the General Register Office, England's central statistical office. Influenced by Babbage, he had long been interested in the use of a calculating machine such as Babbage's Difference Engine to compute life tables; see page 854 of the present report, in which Farr refers to his 1843 letter on this subject to the registrar-general. Farr had seen and tested the machine's predecessor, the Scheutz Engine no. 2, when it was on display in London. It was at Farr's recommendation that the British government authorized in 1857 the sum of £1200 for the Scheutz Engine no. 3 to be constructed by the firm of Bryan Donkin, a manufacturer of machines for the color printing of bank notes and stamps. Costs overran and Donkin delivered the machine in July 1859, several weeks past the deadline, at a loss of £615 (Lindgren 1987, 224-25). Thus, it is one of the ironies of history that the British government funded the construction of a difference engine designed in Sweden based on Babbage's principles long after it had refused funding to complete construction of Babbage's Difference Engine no. 1.Farr's preliminary report, received by the Royal Society on March 17 of that year, was written while the Scheutz Engine no. 3 was still "in the course of construction by the Messrs. Donkin" (p. 854). The report's table B1, "Life-Table of Healthy English Districts," made from stereotype plates produced by the calculator, represents the very first application of a difference engine to medical statistics.The Scheutz Engine no. 2, which the Scheutzes had brought with them from Sweden to England, was purchased in 1857 by the Dudley Observatory in Albany, New York. The following year the observatory used the machine in the computation of tables for the planet Mars; however, these were experimental and probably never printed on paper (Lindgren 1978, 211). The Scheutzes, Farr, and the Dudley Observatory were the first to use the Scheutz calculator in a scientific context. Origins of Cyberspace 77. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Nicolas Boileau-Despraux (1636 - 1711) was a French poet and critic. Boileau did much to reform the prevailing form of French poetry, as Blaise Pascal did to reform the prose. He was greatly influenced by Horace. Franois de Malherbe (1555 - 1628) was a French poet, critic, and translator. Malherbe exercised a great and enduring effect upon French literature. From the time of Malherbe dates the gradual development of the poetic rules of Classicism that would dominate until the Romantics. Jean-Baptiste Rousseau (1671 - 1741) was a French poet and later contemporary of Boileau. With a table of contents to rear and previous owner&#39;s bookplate to front pastedown. Condition: In a crushed morocco binding. Externally, generally smart but with slight rubbing to boards and wear to extremities. Front joint cracked. Internally, firmly bound.
