        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]

      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'.

Die Erscheinung des bekannten Berliner Kliniker Carl Wilhelm Ideler (1795-1860) ist aus dem geistigen Leben der Berliner Humboldtzeit nicht fortzudenken und gilt mit diesem Werk als "Begründer einer vertieften biographisch-psychogenetischen Betrachtungsweise." Balmer, Gesch. Psyh., p.257First and only edition. K.W. Ideler, a German pioneer psychiatrist, was chief of the Berlin Charité for twenty-eight years.

Stuttgart: Scheible 1841. 8°. Privater Halblederband des 19. Jh. mit Lederrücken und -kanten sowie mit aus blau-schwarzem Steinmarmor-Papier überzogenen Deckeln. Zweite Aufl. des zuerst 1838 erschienenen, umfangreichen geologischen und mineralogischen Fachbuchs des deutschen Mineralogen, Hütteningenieurs und Fachschriftstellers Carl Friedrich Alexander Hartmann (1796-1863), im Titel als »Seitenstück« zur 5. Aufl. von Hoffmanns im gleichen Verlag veröffentlichten Handbuch »Die Erde und ihre Bewohner« angekündigt. Die kräftig und sauber lithografierten Tafeln zeigen die Eisschmelze auf Gletschern, Vulkanausbrüche, fossile Funde (Tierknochen, Muscheln, Schnecken), die Krystallographie von Mineralien, Illustrationen zum Behelf der angewandten Geologie für Ackerbau, die Errichtung von Bergwerken, Straßen, Kanälen, Brunnen etc. Vorliegendes Exemplar stammt ursprünglich aus dem Besitz des Kommandanten der österreichisch-ungarischen Kriegsmarine, Vizeadmiral Wilhelm von Tegetthoff (1827-71). Auf dem vorderen Vorsatz recto befindet sich der mit Tinte geschriebene Namenszug Tegetthoffs, und auch ein Vorbesitzer, ein Neffe von Tegetthoffs Vertrautem Georg Ritter von Leitgeb, weist in einem auf der Innenseite des Vorderdeckels eingeklebten, mit Bleistift verfassten dreiseitigen Brief, der an einen mit diesem Exemplar im Jahr 1906 beschenkten »Herbert« gerichtet ist, auf diesen Umstand hin: »Das Ihnen mit d. Post gesandte Buch hat mein Onkel Oberst Georg v. Leitgeb als ex Kommandant der Marine-Artillerie vom Admiralen Tegetthoff erhalten. Tegetthoff war mit uns. Familie eng befreundet & habe ich das Buch nach dem Tod des Onkels geerbt. Auf der ersten Seite finden Sie den eigenhändigen Namenszug des Admirales.« Oberstleutnant Georg Ritter von Leitgeb war erfolgreicher Kommandant der Strandbatterie bei der italienischen Blockade von Triest (1848) und der Marine-Artillerie bei der Verteidigung von Venedig (1859) gewesen, gehörte später dem Generalstab an, und wurde schließlich von seinem Freund Tegetthoff als Professor für Mathematik und Physik an die Marine-Akademie von Triest bzw. Fiume berufen.

      Paris, Typographie de Firmin Didot frères, 1836 [mars 1841], - in-4, [4] ff. n. ch. (faux-titre & titre, dédicace à Silvestre de Sacy, lettre de Silvestre de Sacy à Champollion-Figeac), XXIII-555 pp., avec de nombreux idéogrammes dans le texte, demi-percaline Bradel violine, dos lisse orné de filets dorés (rel. de la fin du XIXe s.). Un coin abîmé, mais bon exemplaire. Edition originale posthume, procurée par le frère de l'égyptologue, Jean-Jacques Champolllion-Figeac, comme beaucoup de textes de Jean-François, mort prématurément en 1832. L'impression, d'après le manuscrit laissé par l'auteur et acquis par l'Etat, en a été très soignée, mêlant typographie et lithographie en noir et en rouge (pour la reproduction des hiéroglyphes). C'est d'ailleurs cette particularité qui explique les cinq années nécessitées par la production de l'ouvrage (si la date de l'adresse porte 1836, l'achevé d'imprimer du colophon est de mars 1841) : Firmin Didot frères furent en effet confrontés au problème de la reproduction des idéogrammes insérés dans le texte ; les éditeurs eurent alors l'idée d'imprimer les deux premiers tiers de l'ouvrage (pp. 1-376) grâce à une technique orginale qui consistait à reporter sur une pierre lithographique le texte imprimé et à dessiner les hiéroglyphes sur cette même pierre, dans des intervalles réservés à l'avance. Les difficultés inhérentes à ce procédé les contraignirent à changer de technique en cours d'impression, et le dernier tiers de l'ouvrage fut réalisé en typographie traditionnelle, les hiéroglyphes seuls étant lithographiés au cours d'un second passage des feuillets.

        Memoirs of Extraordinary Popular Delusions.

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1841. 3 volumes, octavo (228 x 140 mm). Original brown cloth, spines lettered in gilt and ruled in blind, boards elaborately decorated in blind, yellow endpapers, uncut edges. Frontispieces with tissue guards to each volume and 2 engraved portrait plates to volume 3. Bookseller's ticket to front pastedown of volume I, bookplates of Sir Robert Peel of Drayton Manor to each front pastedown. Cloth sunned, spine rolled, ends and corners bumped, short split to front joint of vol. 3, inner hinges cracked but firm, plates a little foxed as usual, overall a very good set. First edition, from the library of Prime Minister Sir Robert Peel. In 1851 Mackay provided the fourth volume for W. Cooke Taylor's biography, Life and Times of Sir Robert Peel, and it is possible that Sir Robert acquired this copy at that time. 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).

Edition originale, comportant le feuillet de dédicace à la ville de Florence, daté du 1er juin 1841. "Représentée en cinq actes lors de sa première au Théâtre Français le 1er juin 1841, cette comédie fut reprise vingt ans plus tard sur la même scène, le 21 mai 1861, dans une version différente et en quatre actes. [Cette] version d'origine, publiée chez Marchant et Ch. Tresse, en 1841, n'a jamais été rééditée et se trouve peu accessible. Cette agréable comédie d'intrigue qui brode sur le ressort dramatique du dépit amoureux cher à Molière avec des accents tirant parfois vers Marivaux est aussi une comédie de mœurs. Le personnage tragi-comique du Commandeur, dans lequel "Caton touche à Don Quichotte", fait bien ressortir la critique d'une société déliquescente où il est du dernier ridicule d'attacher du prix aux sentiments, à l'amour et à la fidélité conjugale, choses de peu de prix qu'il faut laisser aux bourgeois!"

        Ela, the Outcast; or, The Gipsy of Rosemary Dell. A romance of thrilling interest. By the Author of "Angelina ...".

      Printed & published by E. Lloyd. 1841 Illus; without the front. plate, some sl. browning. Sl. later half red roan; sl. rubbing at tail of spine. A good copy.In 104 pts with wood-cut illus. Ono did not possess a copy of the early Lloyd edition of this classic blood which was advertised in parts by May 1840, and provided Prest's trademark pseudonym 'Author of Ela'. The early parts carry the gutter imprints of J.K. Edwards, 44 Holywell Street, Strand; printed by J. Graves, 30 Curtain Road, Shoreditch. The preface of this edition is dated March 15th, 1841 and in it Prest states that the weekly sale has been 30,000 copies and that this is the "eighteenth edition". The edition statement may refer to reprinting of individual parts. (It is clear that the preface in Ono 478, Lloyd's 1850 edition, was set up from this edition.) The Preface refers to the dramatization by Marianne Denvil performed for 'nearly one hundred successive nights!' at the Pavilion Theatre. Prest has another tale in the press, which is probably 'Gallant Tom'. This copy has the booklabel of Arthur E. Waite.
