        Dioptrische untersuchungen [WITH] Beitrage zur Theorie der algebraischen Gleichungen.

      Göttingen Dieterichschen & 1849 1841 - First editions. 2 works in 1, 4to., 34; 34 pp., 1 lithograph plate, first title laid down, light browning throughout, old marbled boards, rebacked, paper label to upper cover. Gauss (1777-1855) ranks, together with Archimedes and Newton, as one of the greatest geniuses in the history of mathematics. In the first work, Gauss gives the first systematic analysis on the formation of images under a paraxial approximation (Gaussian optics) Among his results, Gauss showed that under a paraxial approximation an optical system can be characterized by its cardinal points and he derived the Gaussian lens formula. This was Gauss's last significant scientific contribution and has been called his greatest work by his scientific biographer Clemens Schafer. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Letter signed by Arago after he had gone blind, offering his correspondent the four-volume "Souvenirs" account of the Freycinet voyage

      1841. Single page letter, 225 x 160 mm., very good. A beautiful letter dictated by Arago and signed by him in pencil.In the letter he tells his correspondent that he has been blind for some four years, but that although in this sad state, plunged into profound darkness, he had written a four-volume account of his voyages, the publication of which has been crowned with success. He now takes, Arago continues, the liberty of sending a set to his correspondent, begging him to accept, and saying that being able to admit him to the list of subscribers would be a great honour.Arago signs off with a cryptic note, hoping that his correspondent will receive from "du pauvre Bélisaire" the assurances of his greatest respect: Bélisaire was a novel by Marmontel published in 1767 and famous in France as an example of the ingratitude of those in power towards their faithful servants: was Arago implying that he too had been cast aside by the French authorities? Whatever the case, the gift was not accepted but only, as a note in a second hand at the top of the letter confirms, because a set of the books was already in the recipient's library.Arago letters are quite uncommon, especially where they relate directly to his voyage accounts and experiences. Although the year this letter is not openly stated, Arago is recorded as having gone blind in 1837, hence a likely date of later 1841 here.

Overall in fine condition. Black-on-silver rectangular ticket of Livraria Escquina, Porto in upper outer corner of front pastedown endleaf (2 x 4 cm., with rounded corners). xv, (1), 319 pp., (2 ll.), 25 pp., (1 l.). Complete with the index, list of subscribers and @advertencia called for in Borba de Moraes. *** FIRST EDITION. Alexandre de Gusmão was called by Amzalak one of the five best mercantilist authors (quoted in Hanson, @Economy and Society in Baroque Portugal 1668-1703, p. 306, n. 13). The letters and opinions gathered in this volume cover a wide range geographically - Portugal, Europe, India, Angola, Brazil - and an equally wide range of diplomatic, ecclesiastical and business affairs. A series of six letters deals with the @Contrato do Tabaco (pp. 72-80); an essay immediately following discusses the origin of the Puritans, and whether they were actually free of all Jewish blood (pp. 81-5). In a long essay on the new method for collecting the King's fifth of gold revenues in Brazil (pp. 89-146), Gusmão argues that the foundry system is inconvenient and unjust, and could encourage cheating. There is a long analysis, written in 1751, of a letter by the Governor of Colonia do Sacramento concerning the Treaty of Madrid, which had set new boundaries for the Spanish and Portuguese possessions in America (pp. 147-213). At the end of the volume are four poems and a comedy (@O Marido confundido) by Gusmão.Gusmão (1695-1753) was a native of Santos, São Paulo. After serving as a diplomat he became private secretary to D. João V and finally a member of the Conselho Ultramarino. *** Borba de Moraes (1983) I, 382. Blake I, 32.

        'The Times' testimonial Report of the trial of the action, Bogle versus Lawson, for a libel published in 'The Times' London-newspaper, tried at the summer assizes for the county of Surrey, held at Croydon, Monday, August 16, 1841, before the Right Honourable Sir Nicholas Conyngham Tindal, Knt Lord Chief Justice of the Court of Common Pleas, and a special jury; together with the proceedings of a public meeting of merchants, bankers, and others, held at the Mansion House, London, Friday, October 1, 1841, on the subject of such action, and of the committee then appointed; and also a list of subscribers to 'The Times' testimonial Published by the Committee

      London: John Hatchard and Son, Henry Butterworth and Pelham Richardson. 1841. 8vo., 179 + (1)pp., wanting the half-title, title-page soiled, recently well bound in linen-backed marbled boards lettered. First edition: apparently rare. COPAC locates copies only at BL + Soc. of Antiquaries + Univ. of London. Kress (C.5743) has a 3rd ed. of 1842. A sensational case of a million pound plot to defraud continental bankers by forged letters of credit or 'lettres circulaires', purporting to have been issued by the bankers Glyn, Hallifax, Mills, & Co. The plot was exposed by a Times of London correspondent in a letter, published in the newspaper on 26th May 1840, which referred to 'the great forgery company established on the continent lately detected', and naming the co-conspirators. These included the Marquis of Bourbel, 'the chief of the gang', the Baron Louis d'Arjuzon, alias De Castel, Pipe 'an Englishman who professes to be a solicitor in London', and Cunningham Graham 'an anonymous partner in the house of Bogle, Kerrich, and Co.'. The case was sensational in both social and in banking circles. It exposed the largely unregulated and certainly sloppy banking practices associated with letters of credit (easy to forge and difficult to police) and the almost brilliant ingenuity of an international gang of fraudsters. The naming of Allan George Bogle - who was almost certainly involved - triggered this libel action against John Joseph Lawson, the printer and publisher of the Times, and resulted in the award of one farthing damages for Bogle, but enormous expense and the considerable gratitude of bankers and the city of London for the Times. The present report is without much doubt one of the most detailed accounts of any major financial swindle at this period, particularly one involving letters of credit, a method of money transfer which had been successfully launched in the 1770s by Herries, Farquhar, and Co. to the considerable benefit of the travelling public.

First collected edition. Scarce. Dubbed ?'the Corneille of the Boulevards?', Pixérécourt was practically the inventor, and certainly the codifier, of the popular French stage form mélodrame. Noted for its stock characters, complex plots, sensationalism, startling coups de théâtre, scenic virtuosity and a strongly moral outlook, the mélodrame flourished in the early decades of the 19th century. Pixérécourt built a catalogue of nearly 60 such plays, beginning in 1798 with Victor, ou L?'enfant de la forêt (originally intended as an opéra comique), developing an international reputation. He also wrote comedies, tragedies, vaudevilles, féeries, pantomimes and the librettos of some 21 opéras comiques... He certainly was not ignorant of the dramatic potential of music, for he worked a great deal of it into his melodramas. His most frequent collaborators in that genre were Louis Alexandre Piccinni and Adrien Quaisain. In both dramas and librettos he saw himself as a successor of Sedaine... Though Pixérécourt?'s melodramas are best known for the influence they exercised on Romantic drama, they were no less influential on the genre that came to be known as French grand opera."

        Galerie de scènes et d'impressions historiques, morales et pittoresques du royaume de Naples

      Borel et Bompard, Naples 1841 - With a contemporary gouache paint of Mount Vesuvius erupting, with four vessels in the sea in the foreground (10.5 × 7 cm) on p. (7). First edition. In contemporary half leather. Gilt spine. (9), 10-61, (1) p. The painting is depicting probably the eruption of 1834 that has been also witnessed and recorded in his diary by Hans Christian Andersen: "Smoke swirled thickly up out of Vesuvius, and the lava gave off a cloud of steam? At dusk I walked down to the sea. Vesuvius spewed great streams of lava; it blazed into the air; it was like tongues of fire flaring up. This is the most violent I have seen it." The book is a guide to Naples and its surroundings, contains two poems about the Vesuvius one by René Richard Louis Castel "Le Vésuve en courroux sous ses monts caverneux" (1802; p. 41.) and by Charles-Julien Lioult de Chênedollé "Le Vésuve" (1822; p. 45.). The book has also been published under the title "Souvenirs d'une promenade au mont Vésuve" in the same year. Under this title ("Galerie?") we could not trace any copies in institutional holdings. Spine worn, title vignette fray. Occasional foxing. Overall a good copy. First edition. In contemporary half leather. Gilt spine. [Attributes: First Edition]

[ . . .THE RUDDER (PEDALION) : OF THE METAPHORICAL SHIP OF THE ONE HOLY CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC CHURCH OF THE ORTHODOX CHRISTIANS. . . ]

      Athens: Konstantin Gkarpola, 1841. First Thus. Hardcover. Very good. Folio. [14],484 pp. plus two plates (frontispiece and church plan). In modern Greek. Expertly rebound in antique-style three-quarter calf and marbled boards, spine gilt. Frontispiece quite clean, remainder of contents moderately foxed. Very good. First edition printed in Greece (and second overall) of the classic compilation of Eastern Orthodox canon law, compiled and edited by the monks Agapius and Nicodemus of Mount Athos at the close of the 18th century. The largest published compilation of canon law in its time, PEDALION collected and provided commentary on the Canons of the Holy Apostles, of the first seven Ecumenical Councils, of regional synods through Carthage, and of numerous Church Fathers. As Greek printing on Greek soil was suppressed by the Ottoman authorities during the lives of Nicodemus and Agapius, their first manuscript was sent to Leipzig for publication. There, the heiromonk Theodoret made various unauthorized additions to the editors' commentaries, which were corrected in the present edition on the order of Patriarch Neophytos Doukas. This new edition was printed twelve years after Greek independence by Athens publisher Konstantin Gkarpola, who dedicated it to the brothers Zosimas (Zosimades), leading benefactors of the Greek Enlightenment and independence movements. PEDALION represents one of several major contributions by Nicodemus the Hagiorite (1749-1809) to the Eastern Orthodox Church in the modern era. An accomplished theologian, committed ascetic, and influential mystic, Nicodemus played a major role in the revival of Patristic literature and ancient and medieval Christian practices, including Hesychasm, an intensive spiritual discipline centering on the Jesus Prayer and closely associated with the monks of Mount Athos. He was canonized in 1955. The book includes a detailed floor diagram of an Orthodox church, borrowed from the EXOMOLOGETARION of Chrysanthos of Jersalem, and an attractive allegorical frontispiece showing Christ at the helm of a boat. The accomapnying caption reads (in Greek, with the following translation supplied in the first English-language edition of 1957): "This ship symbolizes the Catholic Church of Christ. Its keel represents the Orthodox Faith in the Holy Trinity. Its beams and planks represent the dogmas and traditions of the Faith. Its mast represents the Cross; its sail and rigging represent Hope and Love. The Master of the vessel is our Lord Jesus Christ, whose hand is on the helm. The mates and sailors are the Apostles, and the successors of the Apostles, and all clergymen, secretaries and notaries, and occasional teachers. The passengers comprise all Orthodox Christians. The sea symbolizes present life. A gentle and zephyr-like breeze signifies whiffs and graces of the Holy Spirit wafting the vessel on its course. Winds, on the other hand, are temptations baffling it. Its Rudder, whereby it is steered straightforwardly to the heavenly harbor is the present Book of the Holy Canons." Surprisingly scarce in major institutions. OCLC record twelve copies worldwide.

First collected edition. Scarce. Dubbed ‘the Corneille of the BoulevardsÂ’, Pixérécourt was practically the inventor, and certainly the codifier, of the popular French stage form mélodrame. Noted for its stock characters, complex plots, sensationalism, startling coups de théâtre, scenic virtuosity and a strongly moral outlook, the mélodrame flourished in the early decades of the 19th century. Pixérécourt built a catalogue of nearly 60 such plays, beginning in 1798 with Victor, ou LÂ’enfant de la forêt (originally intended as an opéra comique), developing an international reputation. He also wrote comedies, tragedies, vaudevilles, féeries, pantomimes and the librettos of some 21 opéras comiques... He certainly was not ignorant of the dramatic potential of music, for he worked a great deal of it into his melodramas. His most frequent collaborators in that genre were Louis Alexandre Piccinni and Adrien Quaisain. In both dramas and librettos he saw himself as a successor of Sedaine... Though PixérécourtÂ’s melodramas are best known for the influence they exercised on Romantic drama, they were no less influential on the genre that came to be known as French grand opera."

        Autograph letter signed in full to the publicist Theodor Winkler (pseud. Theodor Hell)

      2 pages of a bifolium; second leaf blank. Small folio (208 x 270 mm). Dated Paris, May 7, 1841. In brown ink on stationery with the composer's monogrammatic blindstamp to upper left corner. In German (with translation). A long, densely-written, letter regarding Wagner's proposed biography of Beethoven and mentioning his opera Rienzi. Wagner, who was trying to eke out a living in Paris at the time, attempts to interest Winkler in his two-volume monograph on Beethoven based on the research of Wagner's friend Gottfried Engelbert Anders (1795-1866), a German-born librarian in Paris. Wagner declares his intention to supersede Anton Schindler's biography of Beethoven, published in the previous year, which he considers inadequate. He asks Winkler to recommend him to the publisher Christoph Arnold (1763-1847) and names his (and Anders's) requested fees, to be paid in part as advances: "Herr Anders found [Schindler's] book to be very poor compared to his own collection of communications [on Beethoven] ... also, every thoughtful and sensitive reader has expressed his opinion on [Schindler's book] that it falls short of meeting the demands of a true biography as it had been expected... Herr Anders was prompted to realize his long-cherished dream. As his position... leaves him hardly any time and he also confesses that an easy, fluent realization will not come to him, he has offered to leave me all his rich material and to discuss everything with me but to have the book itself written by me... Avoiding any fussy, pedantic, scholarly philistinism of citation, our book shall be more like a great novel on an artist than like a dry enumeration of chronologically ordered dates and anecdotes." In the final paragraph, Wagner expresses his frustration about the long silence of the Dresden court opera regarding a possible production of his opera Rienzi: "I have to confess to you that my opera [Rienzi] still means more to me than anything else... I am almost dying of my unruly lack of patience concerning the decision of the general direction... A negative decision...will cost me half a year, during which I could have entered negotiations with a different theater." From the noted autograph collection of Louis Koch. Slightly creased; small professional repairs to edges; professionally guarded at inner edge of final leaf. . WBV 169. Unpublished in English translation, the German original published several times, most recently in Richard Wagner: Sämtliche Briefe I, no. 149, pp. 481-86. First publication in Das Museum, a supplement to Neue Frankfurter Presse, September 4, 1877. Kinsky, Manuskripte, Briefe, Dokumente von Scarlatti bis Stravinsky: Katalog der Musikautographensammlung Louis Koch (Stuttgart: Krais, 1953), pp. 250-51 (with facsimile of first page). Theodor Winkler (1775-1856), better known under his pseudonym Theodor Hell, was the editor-in-chief of the daily Dresdner Abend-Zeitung, for which Wagner worked as a Paris correspondent. Enclosed with the present letter was Wagner's third "Pariser Bericht," dated May 5, 1841. Winkler was active in many fields; trained as a lawyer, he achieved fame as a poet, editor, arts administrator, and stage director. Wagner's biography of Beethoven did not, in fact, materialize. After Arnold declined, the publishers Brockhaus and Cotta did the same. Rienzi, however, finally premiered at the Dresden court opera on October 20, 1842. A notable example of Wagner's fine calligraphic hand from his early years, still using German Kurrent script.

        Autographed letter signed ("Charles Dickens").

      Windsor, 7. XI. 1841. - 8vo. 2¾ pp. on bifolium. To Dr. Frederick Salmon complaining of some aches and pains. Dickens and his wife went to stay at the White Hart Hotel in Windsor on November 6th, the day after Dickens completed his novel "Barnaby Rudge". The trip was meant to provide some rest and relaxation for Dickens who had completed "The Old Curiosity Shop" and "Barnaby Rudge" back to back, and had recently undergone major surgery. Dr. Frederick Salmon had performed surgery on Dickens in October of 1841 for a fistula of the rectum, a procedure for which Salmon was renowned. In this letter, Dickens' describes his pain and references the operation with his typical wit, noting "all manner of queer pains were floating about my illustrious person [.] now (but not often) shooting through that region which you have made as tender as my heart [.]". Dickens tells his doctor that he is feeling "immeasurably better" and asks whether Salmon would like to make his follow up visit tomorrow rather than Tuesday. - Light soiling to creases; evidence of removal of wax seal. Property from a Private Chicago-area Collection. Provenance: The Comte Alain de Suzannet Dickens Collection Sold: Sotheby's, London, November 22-23, 1971.

        POMOLOGIA BRITANNICA; OR, FIGURES AND DESCRIPTIONS OF THE MOST IMPORTANT VARIETIES OF FRUIT CULTIVATED IN GREAT BRITAIN

      London: Henry G. Bohn, 1841. FIRST EDITION n. Hardcover. With More than 150 Fine Hand-Colored Plates of Fruit. 245 x 150 mm. mm (9 3/4 x 6".). Three volumes. FIRST EDITION. Contemporary green half morocco with marbled boards, spine gilt with fruit motifs, raised bands, red and brown morocco labels, gilt edges. WITH 152 BEAUTIFUL HAND-COLORED PLATES (five folding) by C. M. Curtis and Mrs. Augusta Withers, engraved by W. Clark and S. Watts; volume I with a few plates containing supporting elements (foliage, twigs, etc.) left (purposely?) uncolored. Bookplate of Josephi Greene and that of Sir Thomas Neame on the pastedown and front free endpaper of each volume. Janson "Pomona's Harvest," p. 385; Sitwell & Blunt "Great Flower Books," p. 114; Nissen 1203; Benezit XIV, 1003. Edges and joints a bit rubbed, covers a little scuffed, a couple of minor marginal stains and occasional foxing (mostly on the paper guards and very rarely affecting leaves with text), otherwise all plates in fine condition, with particularly bright colors. The self-taught son of a nurseryman, Lindley (1799-1865) was an eminent figure in his field, publishing several important botanical books and articles, editing botanical periodicals, being the guiding force in the horticultural society for many years, and holding the first professorship of botany in the University of London. In response to what he considered to be the exasperating difficulties of identifying plants by the Linnaean system of classification, Lindley devised his own method, happily named the "natural system," though unhappily somewhat less systematic than Linnaeus'. Although the present work, a reissue of "The Pomological Magazine" (1828-1830) under a new title, catered more to the tastes of a popular audience than a purely scientific one, the contents reflect the author's customary attention to detail and interest in a wide range of plant characteristics. A marriage of both beauty and utility, each of the 152 splendid hand-colored plates features a finely illustrated fruit tree specimen accompanied by a succinct description of its origins, traits (including flavor), and advice about the best species for cultivation in British climates.
