        On the Physics of Media that are Composed of Free and Perfectly Elastic Molecules in a State of Motion" bound extract from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London A 183,1892, pp. 1 - 79

      FIRST EDITION OF WATERSTON'S FOUNDATIONAL WORK IN STATISTICAL MECHANICS OF GASES. This is a bound original extract. In 1845 Waterston submitted a paper [this paper] to the Philosophical Transactions that contained a number of ground breaking theories, including: Heat is the result of the motion of particles; One can compute the properties of a system of particles as a whole by averaging their possible states (predecessor to the "ergodic theorem"); In thermal equilibrium, energy is shared equally among all of its various forms (the "Equipartition theorem"); Gas pressure is a function of the number of molecules per unit volume, molecular mass and molecular velocity; The mean square molecular velocity is inversely proportional to the specific weight of the molecules; Temperature is proportional to the product of pressure and volume (the ideal gas law). In short, Waterston's paper was "an essentially correct and comprehensive kinetic theory…[that] included for the first time a statement of the equipartition of energy among molecules of different masses, it treated the speeds of the molecules, and it gave a satisfactory treatment of specific heats" (Laidler, Energy and the Unexpected, 48). However due to an absurd series of unfortunate decisions, the Phil Trans did not publish Waterston's paper until 1892, nearly a decade after his death. "The name of John James Waterston might have been added to the list of major contributors to kinetic theory and molecular theory but for an unfortunate bungling in the handling of his remarkable memoir submitted to the Royal Society in 1845. [The Royal Society rejected the paper and never returned to him, and he could not submit it elsewhere because he had not kept a copy.]. Upon discovery of the manuscript in the Archives of the Royal Society, Lord Rayleigh saw to it that it was published in 1892, almost fifty years too late. In his introduction to the publication Lord Rayleigh Commented "Impressed with the above passage and with the general ingenuity and soundness of Waterston's views, I took the first opportunity of consulting the Archives, and saw at once that the memoir justified the large claims made for it, and that it marks an immense advance in the direction of the now generally received theory. The omission to publish it at the time was a misfortune, which probably retarded the development of the subject by ten or fifteen years" (Davis, The Airborne Microparticle, 18). CONDITION & DETAILS: Bound extract from the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London A 183,1892, pp. 1-79. Quarto. (11.5 x 8.75 inches; 288 x 219mm). 2 plates. Tightly and solidly bound in later half calf over brown cloth (aged by conservator with small spots on the front board); gilt-lettered at the spine. One small library stamp on the bottom of the first page, otherwise pristine.

        Siebente mimisch-akrobatische Vorrstellung des Carl Price mit seiner Gesellschaft, in 6 Abtheilungen.

      Breslau, 2. Januar (handschriftlich zugesetzt:) 1845. - Mit 2 Holzschnitten. Einblattdruck. 44 x 37 cm. Carl Price (geb. 1803) entstammte einer großen englischen Kunstreiterfamilie, die ca. 1785 nach Skandinavien ging. Einige Nachfahren sind noch im 20. Jahrhundert als Zirkusleute nachweisbar. Die Gattin des Carl Price entstammte der noch älteren und bedeutsameren französischen Zirkusfamilie Franconi. - Das Plakat listet die einzelnen zu erwartenden Vorführungen auf: Eingangs vier verschiedene Vorführungen am Seil, darauf folgend Tänze der Kinder des John Price, die Gebrüder Johannowitsch werden "außerordentliche Leistungen produzieren" (dazu wohl die beiden schwarzgrundigen Holzschnitte, die zwei halbnackte Herren bei einer Kraftnummer zeigen), schließlich wird auch noch ein Theaterstück aufgeführt. Die Truppe bestand wohl fast ausschließlich aus Mitgliedern der Familie Price, es werden neben John (Johann) genannt: Wilhelm, Victoire, Hanna (Hanne Sophie Price; 1833-1905, als Balletttänzerin berühmt geworden) , Clara, Rosa (Rosetta Sophie Caroline Lewin; 1810-1887), Louis, Elise und Ferdinand. - Mit leichter horizontaler Falte.

      Philadelphia: Printed by C. Sherman, 1845. Thick quarto. Contemporary green morocco stamped in gilt, expertly rebacked with original backstrips preserved (except second volume, which is rebacked in matching style), spines in six compartments, richly gilt, gilt inner dentelles, a.e.g. Slight offsetting on the large folding maps, several neatly repaired along folds. A very good set. One of the great rarities of Pacific voyages, here in a mixed set of the true first edition and the first quarto edition of the narrative of the first great scientific expedition sponsored by the government of the United States. The first three volumes of the present set consist of the special Sherman edition of 100 copies, which is the true first edition and was issued for private distribution. The final two volumes are of the Lea and Blanchard printing, which was limited to 150 copies and was preceded only by the Sherman edition. The Lea and Blanchard edition is on the same format as the Sherman edition, and differs only in the preliminary material. The United States Exploring Expedition circumnavigated the globe under the command of Charles Wilkes between the summer of 1838 and the summer of 1842 (for a detailed account of the voyage, see the sources cited below). In July 1842, almost immediately upon his return, Wilkes began work on the narrative, drawing on all of the data and logs assembled by the members of the expedition. This took two years, but by August 1844 the first volume was in the press, and the whole set was ready for binding by the end of the year. The first "Sherman edition," in large quarto format, consisted of only 100 copies for the use of the government, and is easily distinguished by the Sherman imprint of 1844. The "Lea and Blanchard" quarto edition soon followed, and was probably off the presses before the end of 1844 (even though the volumes carry an imprint dated 1845). In fact, the verso of the titlepage of the two Lea and Blanchard volumes notes that the text was in fact printed by Sherman. Both the Sherman and the Lea and Blanchard editions present the text in five volumes, accompanied by an atlas volume of five maps. Those maps are here bound into the front of the fourth text volume. Of the 100 copies printed of the Sherman edition, twenty- five were later destroyed in the Lea and Blanchard fire, sixty-three copies were distributed to foreign governments and federal or state libraries in the United States, and only three were distributed to private individuals. Haskell, in preparing his bibliography of the publications of the expedition, was able to locate over thirty sets in libraries in the United States, but the Sherman edition virtually never appears on the market. The only sets we know of on the market in recent years are one from the Carlsmith collection, acquired from Howell, sold in 1985, and now in an Australian library, and two other sets sold by us in the past ten years. Of the 150 copies printed of the Lea and Blanchard edition, twenty-five were reserved for private distribution by Wilkes, and the remaining copies were offered for sale to individuals at sixty dollars per set. Haskell was able to locate only seven sets in libraries in the United States. A prime opportunity to obtain a set consisting of the two rarest printings of the most important American naval expedition of the 19th century. HASKELL, UNITED STATES EXPLORING EXPEDITION 1, 2A, 17A.

        Description of the American Electro Magnetic Telegraph : Now in Operation between the Cities of Washington and Baltimore. Illustrated by Fourteen Wood Engravings

      J. & G. S. Gideon, Washington DC 1845 - First Edition. 24 pages. 8vo. 5 1/2 x 8 3/4 inches. Self wrappers (title page is page [1]). Previously bound, with stitch marks and glue remnants at the spine edge. Minor marginal loss to the base of the spine (one inch by 1/8 inch). Some overall browning to the paper. Staining to last page. Wraps. Published in 1845 by Vail after the successful test of a Congressionally approved experimental telegraph line from Baltimore to Washington DC in response to repeated requests for information. Separately paginated and with a new title page, the content of this pamphlet is also found on pages [9]-31 of "The American Electro Magnetic Telegraph : with the Reports of Congress, and a Description of All Telegraphs Known, employing electricity or galvanism." published in Philadelphia by Lea & Blanchard in the same year.Norman and Hooke's Origins of Cyberspace (#208), cites this pamphlet, noting that it was "probably" issued first. Both contain the same identical early printing of Morse code, one of the earliest printings of the 1844 revision of "American Morse".With a copy of each in hand, we did a quick review for obvious typographical or printing mishaps that might provide clues to precedence. A period was added after "figure 1" in the text on page 3. There is a possible break in the woodblock for the engraving of Figure 2, at the 9pm position with two line breaks. There is also a piece of punctuation (broken?) off - the period at the base of page 16's footnote. Finally, the pamphlet has a number of examples of muddied type - places where either the printer was lazy and didn't clean the block very well (leading to excess ink obscuring small bits of the engraving and/or type) or the block or type had become damaged. This is particularly obvious on Figure 9, where the 'Y' label that should be near the '12' label is obscured with ink. While not conclusive, these are hints that lead us to believe that the pamphlet may have been printed later, perhaps to keep costs down and remove what might have been perceived as an excess of history to those who wanted to use the code practically. In either event, an important work, and one worthy of inclusion in any collection related to History of Communication or the Telegraph.Shiers & Sterling (6-003) ; Origins of Cyberspace #208; Wheeler 1087 (illustrated); Not in the Ronalds Collection.

        An Exposition of the Weakness and Inefficiency of the Government of the United States of North America (a Suppressed book)

      Np: Printed for the Author, 1845. 380p. Howes M527. The author suppressed version that made his fellow Virginia landowners irate since he felt slavery was a moral evil though he never became an abolitionist. After graduating from Princeton in 1797 where he also later took a law degree he practiced law and served in the War of 1812. He agreed with Federalist principles serving in the U.S. House from 1817 to 1839. He also felt that race based on skin color was so pronounced that as the U.S. would become industrialized, the blacks would be viewed as the least desirable. For this reason, he was one of the founders of the American Colonization Society and wrote this suppressed work in 1845 that along with his having founded the Mercer Colony in Texas led the accusation that he was a rank abolitionist. After a limited distribution of the book, he had copies destroyed. Howes in USiana says this bitter attack upon the Constitution shocked both his friends and notes in 1863 in London five years after his death, an altered version appeared leaving out the most controversial areas. Bound in 1/4 red straight grained morocco over marbled paper covered boards, corners show wear, outer joints and spine cracked but not through endpapers, one signature somewhat sprung, only ocassional spots of foxing. In all a good copy.

        An original design for a porcelain platter

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, two 1 5/8" and 5/8" tears along the top of the central crease and the left margin respectively, and a skillfully mended 1 3/8" tear at the top left-hand corner of the sheet. Small brown spot in the upper right corner of the sheet. A rare example of an original watercolour design for porcelain, by the Samson factory of Paris. This finished design was intended as a reference source from which the porcelain painters could work, using the design as a guide for the colours and image to be transformed from paper into fine porcelain. The French porcelain manufactory of Samson & Cie. was established by "Edmé Samson (b. Paris, 1810; d. Paris, 1891) at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris. The intention of the firm was to reproduce ceramics from museums and private collections, and it claimed that all such reproductions would be distinctly marked to avoid confusion with the originals. In 1864, the factory was moved to Montreuil by Samson's son, Emile Samson (1837-1913). The range of wares included copies of 18th-century porcelain from such factories as Sèvres, Chelsea, Meissen and Derby, Chinese export-wares, especially armorial wares decorated with famille rose colours and mugs decorated with the Fitzhugh pattern, Delftware, Iznikware, maiolica and faience."

      London, 1845. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines, minor soiling. Near fine. American artist Thomas Doughty writes to John P. Ridner, a New York City mahogany merchant and a manager of the American Art Union. In his letter Doughty discusses a shipment of paintings he is sending. Doughty (1793-1856) was a landscape painter of the Hudson River School. He writes: "I wrote to you some time since to promise you that I should forward to your care a box containing a couple of pictures for James Rabb, Esq. of New Orleans. I shall ship the pictures through Hamden & Co. from Liverpool in the steamer of the 4th August next. My object in addressing this note to you is that in case you see Mr. Rabb if you will have the kindness to inform him of that fact, as he might wish to have the pictures insur'd. O presume he is not now in N. Orleans and if I were to direct a letter to him at that place he would not get it in time, and the presumption is that he will be in New York prior to the rec't of this letter. In case he is and you should know if his whereabouts, will you have the kindness to drop him a line? With best wishes for your prosperity, I remain very truly your friend, Ths. Doughty.

Former owner name in ink on the front free endsheet. On the verso of the rear free endsheet is forty-four manuscript lines of text in red ink (neat and legible) that is a description of Nauvoo quoted directly from the WPA guide. On the facing rear pastedown is a hand drawn map (neat and square) of Nauvoo in red ink, with a map key in the lower right corner with twenty-two landmarks listed, that correspond to numbers on the map. Landmarks include: Mansion House, Joseph Smith Store, Nauvoo Temple, Relief Society Marker and Masonic Hall. Sixth volume of the highly influential Nauvoo newspaper. The Times and Seasons was the official newspaper of the L.D.S. Church, and between its pages was the first appearance of the personal history of Joseph Smith. One cannot hope to understand the Nauvoo period of Mormonism without the 'Times and Seasons'. More than it's predecessors, it captures the spirit of the Latter-day Saints as it chronicles their day-to-day efforts to spread their message and gather the converted. Its pages reflect the optimism which fueled the building of the City of Joseph and the sorrow which accompanied it's abandonment. Crawley 60. Flake/Draper 8955. Scallawagiana 16. Streeter 2271. Auerbach: 1323, 1324, Mormon Fifty 11
