        On the Friction of Fluids in Motion and the Equilibrium and Motion of Elastic Solids.Cambridge: John W. Parker, 1846.

      First edition, inscribed presentation offprint, of this important paper in which Stokes derives the 'Navier-Stokes equations' describing the flow of a viscous fluid. These equations may be used to model the weather, ocean currents, water flow in a pipe and air-flow around a wing. They are also of great interest to mathematicians: it has not yet been proven that, in three dimensions, solutions always exist, or that if they do exist, then they do not contain any singularity. The Clay Mathematics Institute has called this one of the seven most important open problems in mathematics and has offered a US$1,000,000 prize for a solution or a counter-example.<br/><br/> "Stokes's analysis of the internal friction of fluids appeared in 1845. Navier, Poisson, and Saint-Venant had already derived independently the equations for fluid flow with friction, but in the early 1840's Stokes was not thoroughly familiar with the French literature of mathematical physics, a common situation in Cambridge. Stokes said that he discovered Poisson's paper only after he had derived his own equations. He insisted, however, that his assumptions differed sufficiently from Poisson's and Navier's to justify publishing his own results. One novel feature of Stokes's derivation was that instead of using the Frenchmen's ultimate molecules he assumed that the fluid was infinitely divisible, for he was careful not to commit himself to the idea that ultimate molecules existed. Another novel feature was his treatment of the relative motion of the parts of the fluid. He was able also to use these equations and the principles behind them to deduce the equations of motion for elastic solids, although he introduced two independent constants for what were later called the moduli of compression and rigidity, instead of one independent constant to describe elasticity as Poisson had. Stokes noted that the equations of motion he obtained for an elastic solid were the same as those that others had derived for the motion of the luminiferous ether in a vacuum. He then justified the applicability of these equations to the ether partly on the basis of the law of continuity, which permitted no sharp distinction between a viscous fluid and a solid, and which he believed held throughout nature" (DSB). <br/><br/> This is an offprint of a paper which has a slightly different title in the journal: 'On the theories of the friction of fluids in motion and of the equilibrium and motion of elastic solids' (pp. 278-320). <br/><br/> DSB XIII: 75.. Offprint from: Transactions of the Cambridge Philosophical Society, Vol. VIII, Part III, 1846, pp. [ii], 33. Original plain wrappers, inscribed by Stokes to 'W. F. L. Fischer' on title page.

        On the Mechanical Equivalent of Heat

      London: Richard and John E. Taylor. 1st Edition. Soft cover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Joule&#39;s most developed and complete account of the results of his famous "paddle-wheel" experiments; includes his most accurate determination of what would later be known as the "Joule." "Joule began work about 1845 on a fourth method for determining the mechanical value of heat. His latest efforts received a polite but unremarkable reception at the Cambridge meeting of the British Association. This time the experiments involved a paddle wheel placed in a can filled with water. Weights attached over pulleys working in opposite directions communicated motion to the paddle wheel. Joule argued that &#39;the force spent in revolving the paddle wheel produced a certain increment in the temperature of the water&#39;..." Although Joule&#39;s work with the paddle wheel was largely ignored throughout the late 1840&#39;s, he continued to work on the experiments and in 1849 "Joule began work in the cellar of the brewery on a fresh set of results (yielding a mechanical equivalent of 772) which Faraday communicated to the Royal Society on 21 June 1849. In 1850 &#39;On the mechanical equivalent of heat&#39; appeared in the Philosophical Transactions; Joule was elected FRS in June of the same year" (Dictionary of National Biography). IN: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society... for the Year 1850, Part I, pp. 61-82. London: Richard and John E. Taylor, 1850. Quarto, original wrappers; custom box. Some toning to wrappers, rubbing and chipping to spine, joints reinforced; text extremely clean and largely unopened. Scarce in wrappers.

Il volume primo dedicato ai cronisti e scrittori del periodo Normanno, il volume secondo ai cronisti e scrittori Svevi. L?autore in origine intendeva pubblicare una Raccolta divisa in tre parti: l?una di cronisti generali, l?altra di cronisti anteriori alla Monarchia, la terza di cronisti e storici particolari da Ruggiero in poi. ?La terza parte della Raccolta dalla quale ha cominciamento la pubblicazione comprendera? quegli scrittori che sincroni sono denomimati e questi verranno ordinatamente distribuiti in cinque periodi che sono il normanno, lo svevo, l?angioino, l?aragonese, il viceregnale facendo punto allo stabilimento della borbonica dinastia?. Dopo la pubblicazione nel 1845 del primo volume che comprendeva i Normanni l?opera monumentale intrapresa dal Del Re venne interrotta a causa delle vicende politiche e il suo forzato esilio. ?La pubblicazione fu ripresa dopo vent?anni ed un secondo volume dedicato ai Cronisti e gli Scrittori Svevi fu apparecchiato e condotto quasi al termine. Gli altri volumi sarebbero seguiti di mano in mano confidando l?editore che niuna sciagura potesse oramai attraversare il suo disegno. Fallaci speranze, poichè nel 1864 un repentino malore lo trasse a morte in Torino?. Il secondo volume fu pubblicato per cura dei congiunti. Opera rara.

The plates in these volumes are the most beautiful and accurate depictions of the Near East ever created in the nineteenth century; 'The Holy Land' both instructs and delights, with superb ethnological descriptions, sweeping panoramic landscapes, and detailed architectural studies.

      Washington. 1845. - 693pp. plus twenty-two plates and five maps (three folding, one in a separate folder). Original blindstamped cloth, spine gilt. Corners lightly worn, cloth starting to separate at rear hinge. A few scattered spots of foxing, but generally quite clean internally. Very good. The Senate issue of the Fremont report, certainly one of the most important single pieces of Western Americana. In various editions this report was more widely read than any other account of the West before the gold rush, and the text and map had a profound effect on the routes frequented during the great period of emigration. The maps include the huge folding "Map of.Oregon & North California in the Years 1843-44," with many lakes and rivers traced in color. Fremont also made substantive contributions as a naturalist, mainly through the work of John Torrey, who accompanied the expedition. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 497. RITTENHOUSE 229.

        War Dance 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).

With the engraved bookplate of Edith [Story] Peruzzi de' Medici on the front pastedown. Fine copy, in a quarter brown morocco slipcase with chemise. OCLC 2673701 . Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Edith Marion Story, from her affectionate friend, Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Rome - Dec 26 - 59." Edith Story (1844-1907) was the daughter and youngest child of the expatriate American sculptor, lawyer and author, William Wetmore Story, who was the subject of a 1903 biography by Henry James entitled WILLIAM WETMORE STORY AND HIS FRIENDS. Among the closest of those friends were the Brownings. Elizabeth, in particular, was especially grateful to 15-year-old Edith for the generosity and kindness she showed the Brownings' son, Pen, barely 10 years old at the time his mother gave this book to her. Edith later married Simone de Peruzzi de' Medici, and became a writer

        The Christmas Books: A Christmas Carol, The Chimes, The Cricket on the Hearth, The Battle of Life and The Haunted Man and the Ghost&#39;s Bargain

      London: Chapman & Hall and Bradbury & Evans, 1845-1860 Five volumes. "A Christmas Carol" (London: Bradbury and Evans, 1860), fourteenth edition; "The Chimes" (1845), first edition, second issue; "The Cricket on the Hearth" (London: Bradbury and Evans, 1846), tenth edition; "The Battle of Life" (London: Bradbury and Evans, 1846), first edition, fourth issue; "The Haunted Man and the Ghost&#39;s Bargain" (London: Bradbury and Evans, 1848), first edition, first issue. All volumes finely bound in full red polished calf by Bayntun (Riviere), with gilt-ruled panels to the front and rear covers, five raised bands to the spine, contrasting leather bands to the spines, full gilt titles and decorations to the spines, all edges gilt, gilt inner turn-ins, marbled endpapers, cloth ribbons as bookmarks. Each volume has minor wear to the spine head and tail, some rubbing and slight chipping to the spine, slight scuff to the covers. Each volume with fresh and clean pages, excepting the minor scattered spotting on the color plates and their surrounding pages in "Christmas Carol," very slight spotting to the title vignette pages in "Chimes," and the hint of smudging to the front fly leaves in "Battle of Life." Overall, a very attractive and near fine set, housed together in a red slipcase with only minor wear to the corners. Smith II 5, 8, 9. The Christmas Books is the name given to Charles Dickens&#39; mid-nineteenth century series formatted after and including his 1843 masterpiece, A Christmas Carol. Each novel in the series is marked by a strong moral and social message, the transformation of a hardened character to a more caring individual, and, of course, the holiday season. While each novel is unique and has its own attributes, none of the works achieved the critical success and timelessness of A Christmas Carol. Unusual for Dickens, each of the Christmas Books were published first as novels without prior serial publication. Additionally, each of the novels is illustrated in black and white, with the exception of A Christmas Carol, which contains plates with color illustrations. This set of the Christmas Books contains the original publisher&#39;s cloth bindings bound into the back of the texts.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine. Illus. by Doyle, Richard; Landseer, Edwin; Leech, John; Maclise, Daniel; Tenniel, John; Stanfield, Clarkson; Stone, Frank.
