        Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions.

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1841. 3 volumes, octavo. Original brown cloth, relined and rebacked preserving the original spines lettered in gilt and ruled in blind, boards elaborately decorated in blind, yellow endpapers, edges uncut. With an additional leaf of publisher's advertisements to the front of volume 2. Frontispieces with tissue guards to each volume and 2 engraved portrait plates to volume 3. Illustrated bookplates to front pastedowns, removal of library labels from spines apparent, reference numbers to title pages in pencil, ownership inscription to front free endpaper of volume 2, and a few marginal annotations to the same, including the date 27 July 1842 to the final page. Boards faded and a little marked with a few knocks, front hinge of volume 2 reinforced, contents tanned with some nicks to fore edges, plates and guards foxed as often, minor worm damage to the rear free endpaper of volume 3, otherwise a very good set. First edition. Mackay's important early work of social psychology discusses popular delusions of all types and considers the credulous enthusiasm of mankind for phenomena such as alchemy, witchcraft, relics, the Crusades, urban myths, as well as economic events such as the tulip bubble, the Mississippi Bubble, and the South Sea Bubble. Still in print, Mackay's book has had a profound influence on economics and sociology, with many modern economists referring to his work when analysing the stock market bubbles of our own age. "Charles Mackay's passionate erudition and urbane, unaffected prose style contributed to make him one of the chief figures in the establishment of Victorian journalism as a dignified profession" (ODNB).

        Qu'est-ce que la propriété?

      Paris: Librairie de Prévot,, 1841. Ou recherches sur le principe du droit et du gouvernement. Premier mémoire. Duodecimo (182 x 112 mm). Original buff wrappers printed in black, edges uncut. Later ownership stamp of "Alf. Mathey" to front wrappers. Wrappers professionally restored, contents bright with occasional light foxing, still a very good copy. Second edition of the French anarchist philosopher's notorious thesis which caused a scandal by equating all property with theft. In the wake of the social turmoil caused by the economic decline in France in 1839–40 and the July Monarchy's lapse into a "religion of property", Pierre-Joseph Proudhon (1809–1865) argued that—unlike freedom and equality—the right to property was not a natural right. Yet he also opposed collective ownership, "as he was persuaded that only a society without government is able to establish social harmony. The First International was, indeed, destroyed in the great fight between those who supported a libertarian socialism of the kind Proudhon had advocated and those who followed the authoritarian pattern, devised by Karl Marx. Kropotkin and Herzen were all his confessed disciples. Even Tolstoy sought him and borrowed the title and much of the theoretical background of his masterpiece War and Peace from Proudhon's book, La guerre et la paix … One can place Proudhon among the great socialist thinkers of the nineteenth century" (Simons, pp. 301–2). Proudhon himself referred to Qu'est-ce que la propriété? as a "diabolical work which frightens even me" (Correspondance I, p. 296), and he was called to defend himself against insurrection charges at his local court immediately after its publication. Qu'est-ce que la propriété? (1840) was followed in 1841 by his "Lettre à M. Blanqui sur la propriété. Deuxieme mémoire", and "Avertissement aux propriétaires, ou Lettre à M. Considérant sur une défense de la propriété" (often referred to as the "troisième mémoire").

Some of the early volumes lacking spines, chipping with loss to the original cloth bindings. Volumes bound in 6 month intervals, Jan-June; July-Dec. <br><br> Punch was a British magazine of humor and satire established in 1841. It quickly it rose to pre-eminence as a widely-read weekly that blended social commentary, with humor and wit. Punch appealed to reform-minded Victorian British middle-class sentiment, without espousing revolutionary spirit or radicalism. For example, the magazine's support for the repeal of the corn-laws and general support for the aims of the Chartists. The magazine was thickly populated by the political cartoons of John Tenniel and other artists. Punch's satirized the evolving political situation of 19th century Europe and relayed moderate British sentiments on the dangers of Prussian autocracy, performance in the Crimean War, Italian nationalism (Garibaldi), colonial affairs, etc. Of particular interest to American readers is Punch's commentary and cartoons of United States policy during the civil war. Punch shows a decidedly negative view of U.S. international assertiveness in their naval blockade and threats to Canada. Additionally, the emancipation proclamation, the role of blacks, and President Lincoln's policies are caricatured in its pages. <br> This is an oversized or heavy book, that requires additional postage for international delivery outside the US.

The narrative contains considerable detail regarding his trial and imprisonment and his subsequent escape from the Citadel in Quebec, as well as accounts of other rebels and their sympathizers, including Sutherland, Lount, Matthews, Montgomery, Morden, Andeerson, Hunter, Morrison, Durand and Wilfred Nelson. .

        Reports from the Select Committee on South Australia; together with the Minutes of Evidence, Appendix, and Index. [Comprising the] First Report ... 9th March 1841 [and the] Second Report ... 10th March 1841

      London, 'Communicated by the Commons to the Lords', and 'Ordered to be printed 21st June 1841'. Foolscap folio, [ii], 8 (last page blank) pages [First Report] and xl, 272, x, 358 (appendix), 58 (index) pages plus 4 large folding hand-coloured maps (including 3 by John Arrowsmith - see below) [Second Report]. Relatively modern half calf and cloth (by Morrell of London), retaining both front and rear original printed blue wrappers; leather very slightly rubbed at the extremities, with a light tidemark to the foot of the spine; front wrapper very slightly marked; minor offsetting to the maps, with an expert repair to a very short tear near the stub of the last one; essentially a fine uncut copy - it is difficult to imagine a better one turning up. Great Britain and Ireland Parliamentary Paper 174 of 1841 (the House of Lords issue, Ferguson 3221 [with minor pagination errors] - see also Ferguson 3218 and 3219). 'This Report contains very complete information regarding the Colony from its foundation [in 1836] to 1841' (Ferguson 3219, referring to the Second Report). Wakefield's self-supporting system of colonization, administered by the South Australian Colonization Commission, failed and the commission was dissolved in January 1840. 'The new board of three salaried commissioners slowly became aware that the colony's funds in London were rapidly dwindling. After months of inexcusable procrastination they had no choice but to throw the colony on the mercies of the Colonial Office. Nevertheless the blame of their own shortcomings and extravagance was placed squarely on [Governor] Gawler for his irregularities, "reckless" expenditure and alleged grave errors of judgment.' The imperial parliament accepted the select committee's recommendations and took control of the colony's affairs. Although the select committee had refused to condemn Gawler and reported that 'even his severest critics had suggested no way in which Gawler's expenditure might have been significantly reduced', he was abandoned as the scapegoat and after his recall in May 1841, he was never again to find public employment (Australian Dictionary of Biography). The maps are (1) Plan of the District of Adelaide, shewing the application of the Running Survey to that locality (Water Sections coloured) (approximately 500 x 600 mm) and (2) The District of Adelaide, South Australia; As divided into Country Sections. From the Trigonometrical Surveys of Colonel Light ... (500 x 600 mm); (3) The Maritime Portion of South Australia, from Capn. Flinders and the more recent Surveys made by the Survr. Genl. of the Colonies (620 x 500 mm) and (4) Map shewing the Special Survey in South Australia, to the Eastward of the Gulf of St Vincent (515 x 600 mm). From the notable collection of Rodney Davidson, with his bookplate on the front pastedown.

        Beitrag zur Untersuchung des äusseren Gehörganges. Mitgetheilt vom Hofmed. Dr. Hoffmann in Burg Steinfurt (pp.10-14, 1 lith. Taf. mit 5 Abb.)

      Wschr. ges. Heilk., 1841/ 1. - Berlin, bei August Hirschwald, den 2ten Januar 1841, 8, 16 pp., 1 lith. Taf., feine Broschur. The Invention of the modern otoscope - nighteen years before Tröltsch (GM 3374)! Erste Ausgabe des Ohrenspiegels - 10 Jahre vor der Erfindung des Augen-Spiegels durch Helmholtz! Die Hals-Nasen-Ohrenheilkunde konnte sich erst so spät zu einem eigenen Fach entwickeln, da die zu beobachtenden und zu behandelnden Organe in tiefen dunklen Körperhöhlen liegen die dem bloßen menschlichen Auge nicht sichtbar sind. So bedurfte es erst der Erfindung eines perforierten Hohlspiegels durch Friedrich Hoffmann, 1841, mit dessen Hilfe die Beleuchtung dieser Organe möglich wurde. Friedrich Hofmann (1806-1886) Arzt, Geheimer Sanitätsrat, in Burgsteinfurt beschreibt seinen perforierten Hohlspiegel, der die Beleuchtungstechnik vor allem im HNO- und Augen-Bereich revolutioniert, aber auch bei der Urethroskopie verwendet wird (HAKEN, GRÜNFELD). Die Erfindung war einfach, er kratzte den spiegelnden Belag im Zentrum eines runden Toilettenspiegels ab und benutzte dieses Loch als Durchblick Die Bedeutung dieser Entdeckung wurde zuerst nicht erkannt und 1859 beschrieb v. Tröltsch den sogenannten Ohrenspiegel erneut. Seit dieser Zeit erfuhr er eine weite Verbreitung. -cf.

        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 characterised 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]

        Punch and London Charivari. Volume the First [to] Volume 25 [a uniformly-bound run of the first 25 bi-annual volumes, bound as 13]

      London, Punch, 1841 to 1853. Quarto, thirteen volumes, approximately 260-280 pages with numerous illustrations per volume. Uniform contemporary half morocco and marbled papered boards, with the spines decorated and lettered in gilt; covers a little rubbed, with a few minor blemishes; trifling signs of use and age to the text, but overall an excellent run of the first 25 volumes. Attention all 'Flashman' fans! George Macdonald Fraser (1925-2008) 'rightly prided himself on his command of 19th-century trivia and slang, often drawn from contemporary issues of "Punch"' (from his obituary in 'The Telegraph', 3 January 2008). The first Flashman book is set between 1839 and 1842, and the series then progresses chronologically through the period of this run of 'Punch'.
