"The music of the bagpipes and the pungent aroma of the haggis pervaded Delmonico's [New York] large banquet hall last night on the occasion of the one hundred and thirty-fourth anniversary dinner of the St. Andrew's Society... At 7:30 o'clock Piper William Clelland[!], arrayed in full Highland costume, stuck up 'The Campbells are Comin' and led the members and their guests into the banqueting room. While the menu was being discussed an orchestra played Scotch music, and the central feature of the feast was reached when the piper escorted a procession of six waiters, each carrying aloft a genuine Scotch haggis. As the 'great chieftains,' or haggises, were borne up and down the aisles, the bagpiper discoursed the old tune 'Bannocks o' Barley,' the Scotsmen cheered until their throats were sore, and the guests of other nationalities enjoyed the scene... The usual formality of parading the haggis was observed amid great enthusiasm. Piper William Cleland led the procession as he has done for thirty-six years." The New York Times, December 6, 1890 & & Angus Mackay became piper to Queen Victoria in mid-1843, thus the manuscript reference to Mackay as piper to Lord Ward on the leaf inserted between pp. 81 and 82 serves to date the "Corrected and improved" edition of the unlocated tutor to the first half of 1843 or earlier. & & We would like to thank bagpipe historian Geoff Hore of Ruakaka, New Zealand for his kind assistance in the dating of this tutor. & & Material of this nature is very rare to the market.

        A Christmas Carol. In prose. Being A Ghost Story of Christmas

      London: Chapman & Hall,, 1843. With illustrations by John Leech. Small octavo. Original cinnamon vertically-ribbed cloth, covers stamped in blind with single line and decorative border of holly and ivy, front cover stamped in gilt with titling within wreath, spine with gilt ornament and lettering, green endpapers, gilt edges. Custom red morocco-backed folding case. Frontispiece and 3 plates by John Leech, all handcoloured as issued; 4 woodcut illustrations in the text. Cut to cloth on rear cover skilfully repaired, green endpapers a little rubbed as usual, early ownership inscription and modern book label on front pastedown, a very good copy. First edition, first issue, with red and blue title-page dated 1843, Stave I at the beginning of the text, green endpapers and with the gilt wreath on the front cover 15mm at the closest point from the blind-stamping on the left (the "single point" determining first issue, according to Todd). The production complications of the first, and by far the most enduring, of Dickens's Christmas books are often aired but not always understood. The current consensus is that copies of all three variant states of the first issue (red/green title dated 1844 with green endpapers; red/blue title dated 1843 with either yellow or green endpapers) were all available on publication day, 19 December 1843. Copies with green endpapers are scarcer than those with yellow.

        ATLANTE GENERALE DELLA ANATOMIA PATOLOGICA DEL CORPO UMANO. Contenente l'intero numero delle tavole alle quali si riporta l'illustrazione del testo. Prima versione italiana del Dr. P. Banchelli.

      In folio (mm. 427x319), 2 voll., mz. pelle coeva (picc. spacchi alle cerniere), pp. 59 (occhietto, frontesp., Indice analitico), con 2 + 233 magnifiche tavole in litografia per lo più colorate, su disegni di Ottavio Muzzi, ciascuna con due o più figure. Le 2 tavv. iniziali, che raffigurano il torace visto anteriormente e posteriormente, non appartengono all?opera. "Prima edizione italiana" di questo superbo Atlante. Cfr. Premuda ?Storia dell?iconografia anatomica?, p. 194: ?L??Anatomia patologica del corpo umano? di Cruveilhier comprende ben 229 illustrazioni. Quest?opera costituisce una pietra miliare nel campo della illustrazione anatomica. Il lettore è imbarazzato perchè non sa se ammirare di più l?acutezza nell?osservazione e nella critica oppure la mirabile, efficace bellezza dei preparati tradotti nel disegno?. - Garrison and Morton,2286, cita l?ediz. francese in 2 voll. del 1829-42: ?The fine illustrations of gross pathology make this, one the greatest works of its kind. Cruveilhier gave the first description of disseminated sclerosis. Hypertrophic pyloric stenosis and ulceration of the stomach due to hyperacidity were also for the first time described in the above work?. - Brunet,II,434-435 pure cita l?ediz. francese: ?Cet ouvrage se recommande par l?exactitude des dessins autant que par le mérite des descriptions? - Wellcome,II, p. 412. "Rarissimo è trovare l?atlante completo delle 233 tavole". In Italia le 7 biblioteche che lo posseggono ne dichiarano 229, come pure indicato dal Premuda. L?edizione italiana del testo fu pubblicata fra il 1837 e il 1841. Nel ns. esemplare - editorialmente - la tav. 3 del fascicolo 56 è stata inserita per errore in due copie, al posto della tav. 2 (qui in fotocopia). Alcune tavole sono state anteposte o posposte ma l?Atlante è completo. Solo una cinquantina di tavole con lievi fiorit. marginali, la tav. 2 del fascicolo 14 è uniformem. ingiallita, le tavv. 4 e 5 del f. 16/17 sono fiorite, altrimenti bell?esemplare ben conservato. "Jean Cruveilhier, medico e anatomista francese (1791-1874). Laureatosi nel 1816, salì alla cattedra di anatomia descrittiva a Parigi nel novembre 1825; fu poi creata per lui nel 1836 una cattedra di anatomia patologica e tal posto tenne per oltre trent?anni. La sua fama è legata alle opere di anatomia patologica, fra le quali ha avuto grande notorietà il trattato, con atlante ricco di tavole del maggior interesse (233 tav.). Come il Morgagni, anch?egli illustrò i suoi reperti d?autopsia con le storie dei malati, tenendo sempre vicino la scienza alla pratica della medicina. Descrisse numerose malattie tra cui la sclerosi a placche, l?altrofia muscolare progressiva e l?ulcera gastrica. S?occupò specialmente delle malattie chirurgiche del sistema nervoso centrale". Così Enciclopedia Treccani,XII, p. 53.

        Exposition de la théorie et probabilités.

      Paris, Hachette, 1843. 8vo. Bound in a beautiful contemporary half calf binding with four raised bands and elegant gilding to spine. Fine, elegant super ex-libris to front board (Lycée Louis le Grand, Université de France), inside blindtamped border. A bit of occasional brownspotting. An excellent and very beautiful copy. (4), VIII, 448 pp. + one plate.. The rare first edition of the work in which the theory of probability is stated clearly and completely for the first time, making it of the utmost importance to mathematics, logic, philosophy, economics, and philosophy of science.The work "is important in the theory of probability, since it examines in an original way the interpretation and foundations of this calculus and its applications." (D.S.B. III:451). Cournot insists on a clear distinction between "objective possibility" and "subjective possibility", and to that he himself adds that which he calls "philosophical probability". "Of course, Cournot neither solved nor satisfactorily stated the problem of the logical foundation of the calculus of probability. But he had the distinction of having been the first to dissociate -in a radical way- various ideas that still were obscure, thus opening the way for deeper and more systematic research..." (D.S.B. III:451).Whereas Bernoulli was the first to actually formulate the theory of probability often called "the principle of moral certainty", Cournot, in the present work, is the first to suggest that it provides a bridge between the mathematics of probability and the real world. It is Cournot's theory of probability that Borel later develops further and calls "the only law of chance"

First edition of Kierkegaard's important work on the theory of repetition and the philosophical contents of the phenomenon. For Kierkegaard repetition is to be likened to recollection, and as he himself states on the first page of the work: "You can say whatever you wish about it [repetition], it will play a very important role in recent philosophy; for Repetition is a decisive expression for what "Recollection" was for the Greeks. Just like when they taught that all perception is a recollection, so the new philosophy will teach that all of life is a repetition." Himmelstrup 53
