        Contributions to the discussions]. In Proceedings of the Fourth Session of the International Statistical Congress

      Eyre and Spottiswoode, London 1861 - [Babbage, Charles.] [Contributions to the discussions]. In Proceedings of the Fourth Session of the International Statistical Congress (London: George Edward Eyre and William Spottiswoode . . . for Her Majesty's Stationery Office, 1861): 380, 381, 383, 394. With: Letter to Dr Farr, on the origin of the International Statistical Congresses. In ibid: 505-7. Half calf, marbled boards ca. 1861, spine renewed. Whole volume. xix [3], 548pp. 294 x 242 mm. Bookplate. First edition. Babbage, a member of the International Statistical Congress's organization commission, made four contributions to the discussions held at the Congress, which took place in London in July of 1860. The first two had to do with statistical methodogy, specifically, the way of delineating statistical information on paper. Babbage proposed the adoption of "dots and broken lines" as a way of distinguishing different lines in a black-and-white printed chart when color printing was not affordable. He stated that thirty years before he had constructed a drawing pen for this purpose, which could hold a series of fifteen small wheels on which different variants of dots and broken lines were inscribed. Babbage's second suggestion consisted of arguments, illustrated with examples from Scheutz's calculating machine (which Babbage was quick to point out was "now at work in the adjacent building"), in favor of "signs" resembling the thing signified. This basically was an indirect argument for the use of his system of mechanical notation, or some similar system, in the design drawings of complex machinery. From the published comments after Babbage's remark it would appear that this argument was not understood. Babbage also drew attention to the inventions of M. Guerry, who had devised a simple arithmetical machine for tabulating statistical results done by human computers. In addition, he proposed the compilation of an English dictionary, by England, her colonies, and America, for the prevention of the formation of separate dialects. Here Babbage was attempting to regulate words that came into usage in order to standardize language and make communication more efficient. His ultimate goal was a universal language: "The existence of different languages is a great evil; it is the destruction of a certain amount of the intellect of mankind, which is thus consumed by the friction that the different languages create. . . . whatever is most likely to become the universal language I would support, because I am convinced an immense quantity of time and talent is lost by the diversity of languages" (p. 394).Babbage's letter on the origin of the international statistical congresses, and the role that he had played in their early development, was addressed to the statistician William Farr, who at the time was using the Scheutz Engine no. 3 to compile his English Life Table. Farr, a member of the Congress's executive committee, contributed a preface to this volume of the Proceedings, in which he acknowledged the "valuable contributions to the science" made by Babbage and others.This congress and its Proceedings included the contributions of numerous significant scientists active at the time, including Florence Nightingale and Alphonse Quetelet.

        The Red Kangaroo. Macropus Rufus

      [London],: no imprint but, 1861.. Handcoloured lithograph, 340 x 245 mm.; fine, framed. Joseph Wolf, a leading English naturalist, prepared a remarkable zoological work that depicted one hundred animals (actually in the Regent's Park Zoo) in their natural surroundings. A number of the animals were Australian; perhaps the most outstanding of all is this big red kangaroo.The plate is a handcoloured lithograph, and is from the preferred subscribers' issue in which the illustrations were laid down on heavy white sheets with captions printed in gold. This illustration has a wonderfully rich texture; not surprisingly, Joseph Wolf's work is described by Sitwell in Fine Bird Books as belonging in the same rank as that of Audubon and Edward Lear.

        EXPLORATIONS AND ADVENTURES IN EQUATORIAL AFRICA. With Accounts of the Manners and Customs of the People, and of the Chace of the Gorilla, Crocodile, Leopard, Elephant, Hippopotamus, and Other Animals

      Albemarle Street, London: John Murray, 1861. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good. This is the first edition of the first book to introduce the gorilla to the world. The author, Paul Belloni Du Chaillu (183? - 1903), is one of the more fascinating stories of Victorian era exploration. Du Chaillu's father was a French trader, his mother reportedly African. As a teenager in Africa, Du Chaillu met and lived with a missionary who had discovered a gorilla skull in 1847. Du Chaillu decided to pursue the then virtually unknown Gorilla, spending three years on an expedition and emerging from the African interior in 1859 with 20 stuffed gorillas. The gorilla's resemblance to humans astonished the public and scientific community and the timing corresponded fortuitously with Darwin's publication of "On the Origin of Species" later that year. Dynamic, young, and a compelling storyteller (his misrepresentation of the gorilla as "some hellish dream creature" endured for many decades) Du Chaillu initially found fame in London. But he was soon vigorously attacked, first for his amateurism and errors, then more personally for his suspected non-white ancestry. To vindicate his reputation, Du Chaillu led a second expedition to Africa, which ended disastrously, with his expedition members inadvertently spreading smallpox and Du Chaillu escaping with little more than his notes. Nonetheless, Du Chaillu was able to silence many critics and restore some of his reputation. Here is the first edition of Du Chaillu's book, which introduced the gorilla to the world beyond West Africa. This copy is bound in contemporary full leather with brown leather spine and corners over brown pebble grain leather boards with marbled page edges and endpapers. With 73 black and white illustrations, including a folding frontispiece of a gorilla - notably the first ever published illustration of the animal - and a folding map at the rear. Condition is good plus - sound but showing general wear to the corners, hinges, and spine. The hinges are tender but holding. The contents are very good indeed - clean and bright with minor spotting confined to prelims. The map and all illustrations are all present.
