        Traité de L'Art de la Charpenterie. [Text volume + plates].

      Bruxelles, Meline, Cons et Comp., 1841-42 (Text vol.]; Paris, Anselin, Gaeury & V. Dalmont, 1841 (Plates). Text volume: Royal8vo. Two volumes bound in one contemporary half calf. Library stamp pasted on to lower part of spine and library stamp to title page. Hinges with some wear but firmly attached. Internally very fine and clean. [Vol. 1]: (2), 575 pp; (4), 670 pp.Plates: Folio-oblong both bound in contemporary half calf, with gilt lettering to spine. Spine with wear and hinges loose. First plates with a 5 cm long tear. Plates are fine and clean with occasional marginal brown spots. 157 engraved plates.. First edition of the first work on laminated timber engineering, being one of the most famous and influential books on the construction of timber roofing and large wood constructions in general. This is the first book since 1567 (De l'Orme. Le premiere tome dell'architecture) to deal with this subject in a scientific and analytical context. Emy's work was organized as a manual describing concrete working phases and procedures and avoiding the usual philosophical and ethic speculations on the reasons to build. He gave precise instructions on minimize wood usage, waste reduction in the workmanship and realization processes of architectonic elements, manufacture assembling speed and work site cleaning. "Armand Rose Emy's essay is one of the most interesting points of reference in the French and European cultural debate on timber construction [...]. Emy suggested a new wood coverage system inspired by the inventions of de l'Orme, architect and counsellor to the Court of King Henry II who wrote in 1561 Le nouvelles inventions pour bien bastir et a petit fraiz." (Mongelli. A New Wood Roofing System: Marac's Barracks and Colonel Armand Rose Emy's Innovative System)"The greatness of Emy's work, the precision and the correctness of his studies and the validity of his invention led Emy to realise many barracks using this roofing system. Photographs show that the Marac barracks was in existence until the 1960s. Today, he must to be remembered for another reason. [...], it is Emy who should arguably be seen as the true father of this technique, as can be seen by his the first careful reflections and experimentation using this type of construction. In fact, studying the Wiebeking's bridge realized at Bemberga, Emy had even evaluated the possibility of introducing the blood-albumen glue between the thin plates to strengthen his semi-circular arch." (Ibid.)

        Mémoire sur une propriété générale d'une classe trés-étendue de fonctions transcendantes.

      Paris, Académie des Sciences, 1841 (submitted 1826). 4to. (257x197mm). Extract from: 'Mém. Acad. d. Sciences de Paris', 1841, pp.176-264. Contemporary half calf with gilt spine lettering. Spine with a little wear. Some light brown spotting throughout. Otherwise fine and clean.. Very scarce first edition of Abel's main paper, in which he first presented his theorem for elliptic integrals - Abel's theorem. "After studying at Christiania and Copenhagen, Abel received a scholarship that permitted him to travel. In Paris he was presented to Legendre, Laplace, Cauchy, and Lacroix, but they ignored him. ... Abel knew the work of Euler, Lagrange, and Legendre on elliptic integrals and may have gotten suggestions for the work he undertook from remarks made by Gauss, especially in his 'Disquisitiones Arithmeticae'. He himself started to write papers in 1825. He presented his major paper on integrals to the Academy of Sciences in Paris on October 30, 1926, for publication in its journal. This paper, [the offered item], contained Abel's great theorem. Fourier, the secretary of the Academy at the time, read the introduction to the paper and then referred the paper to Legendre and Cauchy for evaluation, the latter being chiefly responsible. The paper was long and difficult, only because it contained many new ideas. Cauchy laid it aside to favor his own work. Legendre forgot about it. After Abel's death, when his fame was established, the Academy searched for the paper, found it, and published it in 1841. ... Because Abel's main paper of 1826 was not published until 1841, other authors, learning the more limited theorems published in between these dates, obtained independently many of Abel's 1826 results." (Kline: Mathematical Thought from Ancient to Modern Times, pp.644-55). Sotheran: Bibliotheca Chemico-Mathematics, Third Supplement, describes this paper as "very scarce"
