        The complete suite of Boole's 6 papers contributed to The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, including: On the Theory of Probabilities,

      - PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST. First Editions. Comprising: 1.) On a General Method in Analysis, 1844, vol 134, pp.225-282; 2.) On the Comparison of Transcendents, with Certain Applications to the Theory of Definite Integrals, 1857, vol 14, 745-803pp; 3.) On the Theory of Probabilities, 1862, vol 152, pp:225-252; 4.) On Simultaneous Differential Equations of the First Order in which the Number of the Variables Exceeds by more than One the Number of the Equations, 1862, vol 152, pp.437-454; 5.) On the Differential Equations of Dynamics. A Sequel to a Paper on Simultaneous Differential Equations, 1863, vol 153, pp.485-501; 6.) On the Differential Equations which Determine the Form of the Roots of Algebraic Equations, 1864, vol 154, pp. 733-755. All six works excellent copies, quarto, an excellent copy bound with the general title to the volume included, in period-style quarter dark green fine morocco with watered-cloth boards, raised bands with gilt rules, lettered direct, London, Royal Society, 1844-1864. The paper "On a general method in analysis", contains the culmination of the calculus of operation, and the theoretical as well as technical origin of Boole's revolution in mathematical logic, treated systematically in 1847. Boole's innovative combination of logical propositions by means of algebraic symbols rested entirely on his early development of calculus of operations, which he conducted following Herschel's and Babbage's early work, also pursued independently by Gregory and De Morgan. Boole's primary aim was the 'distillation' of algebraic calculi common to different areas, like propositions, classes and probabilities. The General Method of Analysis was awarded the Mathematical Medal of the Royal Society in 1844.

        ANNEXATION, OR SPORT FOR GROWN CHILDREN [caption title]

      [Np]: Seatsfield, del., [ca. 1844].. Lithograph, 13 x 15 3/4 inches. Lightly tanned. Pencil marks and tape remnants on verso. A couple small repaired edge tears. About very good. A rare American political print, satirizing the men in favor of annexing Texas to the United States in 1844. The image shows a group of men trailing two dogs, named "Santa Anna" and "J. Bull" who are chasing a third dog, named "Jonathan." That third dog is dragging a "Treaty Between the United States and Mexico" and pulling behind its tail a kettle marked "Texas." Among the men commenting on the scene are John Calhoun, Andrew Jackson, James K. Polk, Martin Van Buren and a top hat wearing character representing England (i.e. "John Bull"). Jackson proclaims that "there's as much fun in this, as in scalping Indians" while Van Buren, crouching behind bushes, says "I have not my cue to speak yet, in the mean time I'll keep dark, and watch how the -- dog jumps." Polk, the Democratic nominee for President in 1844 and a strong advocate of annexation doffs his hat and says "Hurra! Well, if they don't elect me President for this, I'll never do another good-natured thing as long as I live." The John Bull character proclaims that he is undecided as to whether he to "jump over the fence and join the sport; or stay here and cry shame!" Not in Reilly's catalogue of political prints in the Library of Congress. OCLC locates only a single copy, at the American Antiquarian Society, and we also locate two copies at the Beinecke Library at Yale. WEITENKAMPF, p. 76. OCLC 191119742.

        Whitefriars; Or, The Days Of Charles the second

      An historical romance. In three volumes. [Epigraph and volume number] London: Henry Colburn, publisher, Great Marlborough-street, 1844. 3 Vols, post 8vo; half-titles not called for; pp.[iv]+323+[i (blank)]; [ii]+339+[i (blank)]; [ii]+334; Victorian quarter vellum, black lettering-pieces, bronze pebble-grain cloth sides; t.e.g., others uncut. Vellum darkened and foxed, and one lettering-piece lacking; poor quality paper showing some very light embrowning, and one blank upper margin with short tear; a very few scattered small marks or fox-spots; a very nice copy nonetheless. Emma Robinson’s first book, and a very scarce title indeed in the first printing, as here. Allowing for a label leaf, the book as here presented makes an exact number of sheets. Sadleir had to be content with a third printing (and a slightly differing collation), whilst Wolff did not find a copy at all; COPAC records copies only at the British Library, Oxford, the National Library of Scotland, and Glasgow. The title-page to volume one in this copy has the ‘m’ of ‘form’ lacking in the first line of the epigraph. It is present in the other volumes. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

Jorge de Lisboa, em sepultura própria, e com inscrição mandada gravar por seu sobrinho Francisco Freire de Mello. Para a sua biografia vej. o Elogio Historico, recitado na Academia das Ciências por Stockler em 1799. O sr. dr. Jayme Constantino Moniz prepara[va] para o prelo um amplíssimo estudo sobre a vida e escritos do egrégio jurisconsulto, obra de longas e acuradas investigações, enriquecida de documentos inéditos, e destinada a realçar entre naturais e estranhos a merecida fama. « Portugal viu pela primeira vez a sua vasta e complicada legislação reduzida a um sistema científico, breve e inteligível. Cinco pequenos volumes de quarto, onde resplandecem igualmente a critica, a filosofia, e a vastíssima erudição de seu autor, contém essencialmente tudo quanto se acha compreendido no amplíssimo corpo das nossas Ordenações, e na copiosíssima colecção de nossas leis extravagantes: e encerram além disso uma grande parte dos princípios mais sãos da jurisprudência universal, que a perspicácia dos espíritos mais capazes de remontar à primitiva origem dos deveres dos homens, e aos verdadeiros princípios das sociedades civis, soube derivar destas puríssimas fontes, em benefício da humanidade. Esta obra, especialmente a parte que trata da nossa legislação criminal, constitui um monumento indelével, que levará até a mais remota posteridade o nome de seu autor, e fará que ele seja contado pelos vindouros no pequeno número dos jurisconsultos filósofos, que ousaram aclarar a legislação da sua pátria, sem sacrificar os direitos de todos os homens ao temor de incorrer no desagrado de alguns.» (Stockler, no Elogio citado.)

        Ueber die chemische Zusammensetzung der Eiterzellen IN: Hoppe-Seyler (ed) Medicinsich-chemische Untersuchungen, Heft 4, 441-60

      Discovery of DNAMiescher, Johann Friedrich (1844-95). Ueber die chemische Zusammensetzung der Eiterzellen. In Hoppe-Seyler, Felix, ed., Med.-chem. Untersuchungen (Berlin: Hirschwald, 1866-71), Heft 4: 441-60. 8vo. vi, 593pp. 3 lithographed plates. 210 x 141 mm. Cloth ca. 1871, title in gilt on spine. Booklabel of the Chemischen Institute der Universität Innsbruck, and their stamp and withdrawal stamp on title page. Fine copy.First Edition. One of the earliest significant contributions to the field that would eventually be called molecular biology. "Miescher's first and most important discovery was a new class of compounds rich in organic phosphorus and forming the major constituent of cell nuclei. He rightly concluded that these 'nucleins,' as he called them, were as important a center of metabolic activity as the proteins" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Miescher's "nuclein" (nucleoprotein) was later demonstrated to be the hereditary genetic material (DNA). He also was the first to suggest the existence of a genetic code. Miescher was the son of Johann Friedrich Miescher the elder, professor of pathological anatomy at the University of Bern; his uncle was Wilhelm His, Sr., professor of anatomy and physiology at the University of Basel and inventor of the microtome. After receiving his M.D. in 1868 Miescher began working under the physiological chemist Felix Hoppe-Seyler, who encouraged Miescher to study leucocytes (white blood cells). Miescher developed techniques for isolating the nuclei of these cells, and then subjected the purified nuclei to an alkaline extraction followed by acidification, resulting in a precipitate that Miescher called nuclein. Upon further analysis, Miescher was able to demonstrate the salt-like union of nuclein's two major components, an acid fraction and a basic fraction. He thus became the first to isolate and identify what we now know as DNA. Garrison-Morton 695.

        FABBRICHE E DISEGNI. Illustrate dal Cav. Giulio suo figlio. Opera dedicata a Sua Altezza Imperiale il Gran Duca Ereditario delle Russie.

      F.lli Negretti 1844 In folio (mm. 465x325), mz. pelle coeva, tit. oro al dorso, pp. (4),32,(2), molto ben illustrato da 66 tavv. inc. in rame (tutte dettagliatam. descritte), tratte dai suoi disegni originali. Vi figurano: il teatro dell?Hermitage - il maneggio delle Guardie a cavallo e la Banca Imperiale a Pietroburgo - l?Osservatorio Astronomico - Progetti vari di ponti, di un teatro e di caffeaus - Chiesa dei Riformati inglesi, ecc. E? questa la più importante opera monografica sul grande architetto bergamasco (1744-1817), realizzata dal figlio dopo la sua morte. La prima edizione, pubblicata a Milano nel 1821, venne poi ristampata nel 1843 ed ampliata nel 1844. In quest?ultima ediz., infatti, il figlio Giulio fece pubblicare 18 nuovi progetti o realizzazioni, che costituiscono la seconda parte dell?opera. Recatosi in Russia nel 1779, il Quarenghi era diventato l?architetto di Caterina II. San Pietroburgo in particolare è segnato dallo stile di ispirazione palladiana, che l?architetto adottò per i suoi progetti e che ancor oggi caratterizzano il profilo neoclassico della città, considerata la più europea di tutta la Russia. Cfr. Berlin Katalog,2776 e Millard Collection,108 che citano la prima del 1821. Esemplare ben conservato.

        Remains of the Temple of Jove Olympus. "Avanzi del Tempio di Giove Olympico

      Greece: Rome Unknown. 1844. Copper engraving of the Olympieion, Temple of Olympian Zeus by Andrea Gasperini. Black & white; verso blank. Dedication to "Signor Alessandro Cipriani di Livorno, amatore e dislinto cultore di belle arti" with the artist's sincere friendship and gratiude. A rare engraving, as far as we can determine it was seperately issued, ie never bound as a book with the others of the series. The large view shows the temple from an unusual angle with the hill of Lycabettus behind, across open fields. There are no houses, but a few tents of those who have come to celebrate at the temple. In the foreground a group of women dance whist others look on, we see other groups dancing in the background. Good dark impression; some spotting within image; minor chips to edge of lower blank margin. Andrea Gasparini, produced a series of engravings of Monuments of Athens, all dedicated to Alessandro Cipriani of Livorno, little is known about the artist or why Sig. Cipriani was interested in the views. The engravings are interesting for what they show of life in Greece after the fall of the Ottomans; whilst showing the monuments they also show life in Athens as a Greek town. In a number of the views Gasparini shows festivals or celebrations taking place at the sites.; they also reveal how small the 'city' was . Athens was chosen as the Greek capital for historical and sentimental reasons, not because it was a large city: there are few buildings in Athens from the period of Byzantine Empire and the 18th century. At the time these views were published new buildings were being erected : the University of Athens (1837), the Royal Palace (now the Greek Parliament Building) (1843), the National Garden of Athens (1840), the National Library of Greece (1842) but it is clear from the views that Athens was a small town.at the time of their drawing.

        Lady Julia Cornwallis Sheet Music Album

      London.: Chappell, D'Almaine, Jullien, et al.. 1840s thru 1850s.. Three-quarter leather bound volume, 13 x 10 inches, containing more than two dozen individual pieces of sheet music dating from the 1840s and 1850s. The corners of the volume are bumped; there is a 1 inch loss at bottom of leather spine; text block firmly bound. A paste-down leather label on the marble-papered front cover of the book is inscribed in gold lettering with the owner's name: Lady Julia Cornwallis. The volume contains many attractive color-lithographed covers (likely augmented with hand-coloring); a good many of these stunning covers are the work of the prolific John Brandard and were printed by the renowned firm M. & N. Hanhart. Several of the covers reflect time-toning or modest staining, but the contents, overall, are in excellent condition. This is a fine collection of mid-nineteenth century music and the attendant lithographed cover art. The volume would make an excellent addition to a library with a British sheet music emphasis. The collection of British sheet music gathered by Lady Julia Cornwallis (2 July 1844 to 1 September 1883) is an especially fine assemblage of mid-nineteenth century popular music. The composer most frequently represented in the volume is Charles D'Albert with nine titles (including the Galop celebrating the clipper ship Schomberg, in 1855 the largest vessel ever built in the UK); other composers include Louis D'Egville, Louis Jullien (the Cricket Polka and the Chimes Quadrille, both referencing works by Charles Dickens), Camille Schubert, and all six of J. T. Stone's Assortimens Quadrilles Nationales—not often seen as a complete collection. Cover art by John Brandard is found on nine different titles. The album contains eleven full-color illustrated covers; one multi-color text only cover; two black and sepia-tone covers; three black and white pictorial covers; eleven black and white text-only covers (including the six J. T. Stone compositions). Several of the covers bear the signature of Lady Cornwallis and are dated 1858. A complete list of the sheet music in the album can be had by contacting oldimprints.com. .

        Buffalo Hunt, Approaching In A Ravine taken from The North American Indian Portfolio

      Printed by Day & Haghe, Lith. to the Queen, London., London and New York 1844 and 1845 - The North American Indian Portfolio George Catlin was the first artist to travel widely among the Plains Indians of North America and create an important body of paintings and graphics to illustrate their customs and artifacts. His purpose was both unselfish and romantic. He wanted, and labored unceasingly, to persuade his contemporaries that Native American culture should be honored and preserved. During the 1830's, Catlin gathered artifacts and turned his sketches and recollections of the prairie into paintings. These were shown in 'Catlin's Indian Gallery' which drew enormous crowds in Philadelphia, New York, Washington, Boston and, finally, London and the Continent. In 1844, Catlin issued 'The North American Indian Portfolio' to further publicize his cause. The lithographs ranged from portraits to tribal ceremonies, from the anecdotal to the idealized. Above all, his pictures emphasized 'the struggle for survival that was thought to shape the force and independence of savage character' (Tyler, 'Prints of the American West', p.31).
