        INDIA – BENGAL – BAY OF BENGAL, APPROACHES TO THE HOOGHLY RIVER: A Survey of the Sands and Channels forming the Entrance into The River Hoogly; including Balasore Roads, and Bank of Soundings off Point Palmiras, by Captn. Richd. Lloyd, I.N. Offg. Marine Surveyor General, 1841.

      [Calcutta, ]. 1841 - Lithograph (Very Good, some minor old stains and light creasing, tiny loss to blank margin at foot of centrefold), 65 x 77.5 cm (25.5 x 30.5 inches). Extremely rare – the only known example of an early Calcutta-published edition of a sea chart the approaches to the River Hooghly, in the northern end of Bay of Bengal, from the recent advanced surveys of Captain Richard Lloyd, the Marine Surveyor General of India. This is an extremely rare early India-published edition of a highly important sea chart, depicting the waters of the northern end of the Bay of Bengal, upon the approaches to the Hooghly River, being the way towards Calcutta, the capital of British India. The chart showcases the results of a series of extremely exhaustive scientific surveys, with the coasts delineated by trigonometric methods, while the floor of the Bay of Bengal is charted based on extensive tracked bathymetric soundings. The mouth of the Hooghly is marked by the ‘Cowcolly Light House’, while numerous other navigational aids, such as buoys and ‘Floating Lights’ are marked, along with onshore visual aids, such as the ‘Sauger Tripod’. The present chart represents the first time that this crucial stretch of sea had been scientifically charted in a comprehensive fashion, being a great leap forward from the last major surveys of these waters, conducted in the 1760s by Bartholomew Plaisted and John Ritchie. The surveys depicted here were conducted in the mid-1830s by Captain Richard Lloyd, of the (British) Indian Navy, and his associates. All sea charts printed in India during the second quarter of the 19th Century are extremely rare, and a comprehensive study of the field has yet to be undertaken. As such many mysteries abound as to the circumstances of the production of many charts, and numerous editions, such as the present offering, are known in only a single example. Indeed, the present chart is somewhat enigmatic. It does not bear an imprint, but due to the beautiful, rustic style of the lithography and the type of paper used, was obviously printed in India, almost certainly in Calcutta, then by far the preeminent map publishing centre of the Subcontinent. This chart is nearly identical, in both content and style, to an extremely rare edition of the chart lithographed in 1841 in Calcutta by T. Black of the Asiatic Lithography Company. However the present chart was clearly printed from a different stone. While a matter of speculation, the present edition may be the first issue of the chart, quickly and privately lithographed for the Marine Survey of India, in Calcutta, in advance of the Black/Asiatic Lithography edition. Subsequently, another edition of the chart was published in London, in 1842, by the firm of J. Walker, which while identical in content and design to the Calcutta editions, is lithographed in a markedly different fashion. Various London editions followed over the coming years, as the Lloyd chart remained the base chart of these waters for decades. Captain Richard Lloyd (1798 - 1877) was major figure in the scientific maritime cartography of Eastern India, Bangladesh and Burma. Born in Chichester, England, he joined the Indian Navy as a surveyor in 1823. He benefitted greatly from the patronage of Captain Daniel Ross, the Marine Surveyor General of India, eventually marrying his daughter, Maria. He succeeded Ross as Marine Surveyor General in 1833. Over the coming years, Lloyd conduced the first scientific surveys of the entire northern part of the Bay of Bengal and the coast of Burma, the latter having been recently conquered by Britain during the First Anglo-Burmese War (1824-6). However, in 1840, Lloyd and many of his fellow surveyors, resigned their commissions en masse to protest the severe cuts in the survey’s budget that were foolishly authorized by the East India Company directorate. Lloyd then returned to London where he enjoyed a long and successful career as a merchant, specializing in the India trade. The present chart is ex

Together, six volumes.

Manners and Customs is his landmark work and a standard source on the subject. “Wilkinson is regarded as the founder of British Egyptology, being a pioneer in the decipherment of hieroglyphs, the first to recognize several royal names, and first to make detailed surveys of all the major sites in Egypt, single-handedly, and to make a complete plan of Thebes. His contribution was enormous” (Clayton, The Rediscovery of Ancient Egypt, 46). Illustrated with numerous vignettes and 17 plates (five chromolithographs, three folding), and with the supplementary volume of 77 plates (two chromolithographs, 14 folding). The first series was first published 1837. BooksellerÂ’s and bookbindersÂ’ small tickets. Armorial bookplates. Pencil owner signatures and occasional marginalia.Restoration to joints and spine ends.

        On the Heat Evolved by Metallic Conductors of Electricity and in the Cells of a Battery During Electrolysis" in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science 19, 1841, pp. 260-277

      FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF "THE FUNDAMENTAL LAWS OF ELECTRICITY", THE DERIVATION OF JOULE'S LAW stating that "the heat which is evolved by the proper action of any voltaic current is proportional to the square of the intensity of that current, multiplied by the resistance to conduction which it experiences" (SparkMuseum, The Jenkins Collection). Joule's discovery of the heating effects of an electrical current, the universality of the conversion between electrical and thermal energy was a landmark in itself; it also led directly to the dramatically imkportant law of the conservation of all energy (a paper we also offer for sale). In this, the 1941 paper, Joule's derives the quantitative law of heat production by a voltaic current "from a brief series of measurements of the simplest description: he dipped a coiled portion of the circuit into a test tube filled with water and ascertained the slight changes of temperature of the water for varying current intensity and resistance. The critical step in these, as well as in all his further experiments, was the measurement of small temperature variations; Joule's success crucially depended on the use of the best available thermometers, sensitive to about a hundredth of a degree... During the next two years Joule made a systematic study of all the thermal effects accompanying the production and passage of the current in a voltaic circuit" (PMM, VII, 181). "The experiments were extended from metals to electrolytes (thus confirming that the same law applies to liquids) and to batteries in which electrolytic decomposition took place. In the latter case, Joule deduced that 'the total voltaic heat which is generated in any time is proportional to the number of atoms which are electrolyzed in each cell of the circuit' (Science in the Making, 1798-1850, Vol. 1, 1995, pp. 354-355). "These experiments contained the germs of Joule's second great discovery, the equivalence of heat and energy, which he fully developed later. But he had already made it clear that the energy set free in the battery is also proportional to the resistance of the circuit and to the square of the current" (DNB). CONDITION & DETAILS: (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). [vii], 608, [2]. Joule paper: pp. 260-277. In-text illustrations throughout (including the Joule paper).

        Histoire et Tableau de l'Univers (4 Tomes - Complet)

      4 vol. in-8 cartonnage romantique richement orné, Gaume Frères, Paris, 1841, 484 ; 598 ; 540 ; xv-654 pp. Très rare exemplaire bien complet des 4 tomes. Julien-François Daniélo (1806-1886) fut un temps secrétaire de Chateaubriand, et "l'aida dans ses recherches sur l'Empire romain. Son nom est cité avec éloges dans la préface des Etudes Historiques" (Larousse, GDU, VI, 75). Dans ce travail impressionnant, une large place est faite aux systèmes philosophiques et théologiques de l'Orient. Dans sa préface au tome troisième, tout entier consacré aux pensées et philosophies de l'Inde, l'auteur indique : "Je regarde ce volume comme essentiel pour la connaissance des traditions, de la religion, de la littérature et de la philosophie des hindous. Je ne crains pas de dire que jusqu'ici nous n'avions encore rien d'aussi étendu, rien d'aussi authentique sur ce vaste sujet, dont l'importance et l'éclat s'en vont croissant de jour en jour. J'ai toujours puisé aux sources originales, et je crois candidement avoir fait un livre neuf, sinon pour la forme, du moins pour la matère ; je crois que l'Inde est tout un hémisphère de la pensée humaine, qui lui manquait jusqu'ici [...] ". Le dernier tome est très largement consacré à la Chine. Etat satisfaisant (tome 3 presque débroché, divers accrocs au fragile et beau cartonnage, rouss. et mouill. claires variables). Prix en l'état. L'ouvrage est souvent attribué à tort à l'Abbé Jean-Paul Danielo, député (1808-1857). Français

        Autograph letter signed, with a fine illustration.

      Oxford, 6. VIII. 1841. - 4to. 2¾ pp. on bifolium. To an unidentified recipient: "I have been favoured by your letter of June 29th, in which you have given me your opinion of your drawing of Blenheim, for which I am very much obliged. As the drawing was then in London, I thought it best to defer replying to your letter till I should have it before me, or till I had made the alterations you mentioned, which I believe I have now completed, and which undoubtedly improve it very much. In the first place I have darkened the large green oak No. 1, on the right, also the lower part of the warm oak No. 2 on the left, the upper part, at present, I am unwilling to alter unless I find that it be your wish that I should do so. The Wych Elm No. 3 was very yellow, but I have now made it somewhat green, such as it might be when the foliage has undergone a partial change only. The small beech trees remain much the same, for some time I was unwilling to do any thing to them, I have however made them a little darker. I have endeavoured to work up the distance and building to the effect you desired; and the ferns in the foreground I have varied both in effect and colour. I should say that I have not done much to the building, and was unwilling for some time to touch it, but after making the other alterations, I ventured also to deepen and warm it a little, and I now think it better. I shall be much obliged if you will inform me if you recollect any other little thing that you desire I should do to it, and I shall be most happy to do my best to work up to your idea of the subject. I must beg to say that I agree entirely with you as to propriety of strengthening the effect according to your suggestion [.]".

        Popular Treatise on the Art of Photography, including Daguerreotype

      1841. First Edition . HUNT, Robert. A Popular Treatise on the Art of Photography, including Daguerréotype, and All the New Methods of Producing Pictures. Glasgow: Richard Griffin, 1841. Octavo, early plain blue paper wrappers and endpapers. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $6500.First edition of HuntÂ’s landmark photographic work, with 29 in-text illustrations and frontispiece featuring one of the earliest representations of a negative print.In the dramatic years of photography's early growth, with Niépce developing heliography, Daguerre the daguerreotype and Fox Talbot the calotype, Robert Hunt (1807-87), a British chemist, geologist and photographer, broke new ground with this ""very first general treatise on photography"" (Reilly, Albumen & Salted Paper Book). A pioneering text, it successfully broadened the influence, art and scientific uses of photography while also exploring new photographic processes. ""On the discovery of photography Hunt at once began a series of careful experiments, and soon published in the Philosophical Transactions several papers on his results, one being the discovery that the protosulphate of iron could be used as a developing agent"" (DNB). ""With characteristic unselfishness, Hunt made [his and other discoveries] public during the early '40s."" His innovation of ""protosulphate of iron had many advantages over gallic acid as a developing agentÂ… Its importance in shortening exposure time ""compels us to pay particular attention to its introduction into photography"" (Eder, 326). Two years after this book's publication, Hunt produced what many consider to be the first color photograph, using a chromatype process to create a direct positive image in hues of orange or lilac. With frontispiece plate of a photographic positive and negative—one of the earliest known representations of the negative print. Gernsheim Incunabula 653. Some edge-wear to brittle text, a few stains to title page and gutter margin of Introduction. Foxing to later wrappers. A very good copy of this scarce and seminal work.

"Finalement, le 28 août 1841, la Congr. de la Propagande publia un décret approuvant in forma generali les canons de 1835; elle en assurait la publication et aucune autre édition ne ferait autorité. L'édition arabe ainsi faite en 1841 par ordre de la Congrégation contenait de très légères retouches aus quatre canons discutés" (Histoire des conciles). - Entirely printed in Arabic save for the "Decretum" (promulgation dated 28 August 1841) printed in Latin.

        19 Treaties. Slave Trade.

      1841. First Edition . (PARLIAMENT). Nineteen Treaties and Documents on the Slave Trade. London: Harrison and Sons, et al., 1841-1886. Folio, contemporary three-quarter polished brown calf, red and green morocco spine labels, marbled boards. Laid-in Correspondence Respecting Treaty of December 17, 1885, original self-wrappers, contemporary stitching. $3000.First edition of this major 19th assemblage of official printings of treaties and pivotal documents signed by Britain, Portugal, Madagascar, Zanzibar, Muscat, France and other nations in “the hope of bringing the slave trade to an end” (Hugh Thomas), this handsome folio volume from the library of the British Vice-Consulate in Antananarivo, Madagascar.Throughout the 18th century British merchants “had been the greatest of slave traders… In the 19th, however, their government embarked upon a crusade to destroy that very commerce” (Thomas, 591). Yet that goal was hampered by fierce discord, rising profits in sugar and cotton, and objections by the United States and others who saw this as another grasp at control over the high seas. “It became obvious that abolition could only be achieved if a [British] naval force was supported by diplomacy; and what seemed to be several achievements of this kind were soon registered.” This volume, with its official printings of 19 treaties and documents from 1822-1886, is a rare record of those pivotal beginnings. Here is “the system of international law which Britain sought to inspire, and with which some other nations collaborated without enthusiasm, in the hope of bringing the slave trade to an end.” As noted by historian Hugh Thomas, there were key lessons in these “treaties with three potentates in East Africa, the king of Eastern Madagascar, the sultan of Zanzibar, and the imam of Muscat… [For] the African side of the Atlantic slave trade had changed in the 19th century almost as much as the American and European” (Slave Trade, 651-79).Pamphlets in this volume:*Convention Between Her Majesty and the King of the French, for the Suppression of the Traffic in Slaves.
