Die Bände sind also nicht von 1 bis 100 durchnumeriert. - Amedee Dechambre (Sens 1812-1885 Paris), medecin francais. Docteur en 1844, il fut redacteur principal de la 'Gazette medicale' de 1844 a 1853, fondateur de la 'Gazette hebdomadaire', et consacra la plus grande partie de sa vie a la direction du 'Dictionnaire encyclopedique des sciences medicales'. (Grd. Larousse enc., 3, 1960). -- "L'habitude d'utiliser l'ordre alphabetique pour assembler des connaissances d'une maniere didactique et facile a lire se repandit des le Moyen Age: la medecine y participa, et des ouvrages de ce type furent imprimes des le XVIe siecle. Les dictionnaires sont des terrains d'etude inestimable pour tracer l'histoire d'un langage [..]. Leur contenu est tres variable selon les buts que se sont fixes les auteurs. [..]. Le XIXe siecle fut marque par une floraison lexicographique particulierement considerable. Le premier ouvrage en date fut celui de Capuron en 1806 et l'on peut dire que sa descendance dure encore [..]. [..] En 1864 parut le premier tome d'un 'Nouveau Dictionnaire de medecine et de chirurgie pratique [..] dont le directeur etait Jaccoud. [..] Cette meme annee 1864, le 'Dictionnaire encyclopedique des sciences medicales' faisait paraitre son premier volume avec cent soixante dix-neuf redacteurs dont Pasteur et Littre, A. Dechambre etant directeur: cette oeuvre monumentale de cent tomes est desormais connue sous ce nom, et elle represente la totalite de la science medicale dans la deuxieme moitie du XIXe siecle. Dans sa longue introduction, Dechambre fait l'inventaire de toutes les sciences desormais indispensables a la medecine: la chimie [..], la physique, l'anatomie, la physiologie, l'histoire naturelle medicale, ou la botanique tient une grande part, la therapeutique, la methode experimentale [..], l'hygiene, la medecine legale, la geographie medicale et la statistique, dont la mention est appuyee par cette phrase: 'nulle part peut-etre le role social du medecin n'est plus manifeste ni plus grand'." (J.-C. Sournia u. A. Manuila, Histoire du Langage medicale. Dans: J. Poulet et al., dir., Histoire de la medecine, VIII [8], 1980, p. 322 f.). - "Seit dem Mittelalter wurde es zur Gewohnheit, die alphabetische Reihenfolge zu verwenden, um Kenntnisse auf eine didaktische und leicht lesbare Art zusammenzufassen; die Medizin stand darin nicht nach, und seit dem 16. Jahrhundert wurden Werke in dieser Weise gedruckt. Diese Wörterbücher sind ein unschätzbares Untersuchungsgebiet, um die Geschichte einer Sprache aufzuzeigen [..]. Das 19. Jahrhundert ist durch eine besonders üppige Blütezeit der Lexikographie gekennzeichnet. Zeitlich das erste war 1806 jenes von Capuron, dessen Nachfolger bis heute überlebt haben. [..] 1864 erschien der erste Band eines 'Nouveau dictionnaire de medecine et de chirugie pratique' [..] unter der Leitung von Jaccoud [..]. [..] Im gleichen Jahr kam auch der erste Band des 'Dictionnaire encyclopedique des sciences medicales' [..] heraus, an dem hundertneunundsiebzig Autoren, darunter Pasteur und Littre, unter der Leitung von A. Dechambre, mitarbeiteten: dieses monumentale Werk, welches hundert Bände umfasst, ist seither unter diesem Namen bekannt und stellt das gesamte medizinische Wissen der zweiten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts dar. In einer langen Einführung macht Dechambre eine Bestandsaufnahme aller nunmehr für die Medizin unerlässlichen wissenschaftlichen Gebiete: die Chemie [..], die Physik, die Anatomie, die Physiologie, die medizinische Naturkunde ebenso wie die Botanik. Ihr Anteil ist sehr gross, während die Erwähnung der Therapeutik, der experimentellen Methode [..], der Hygiene, der Gerichtsmedizin, der medizinischen Geographie und der Statistik mit folgendem Satz bekräftigt wird: 'Vielleicht ist die soziale Rolle des Arztes nirgendwo so offensichtlich und so gross'." (Dies., Geschichte der medizinischen Fachsprache. In: R. Toellner, Illustrierte Geschichte der Medizin, 6, 1986, p. 3020 u. 3022 f.). Diese Übersetzung trifft allerdings nicht ganz sinngemäss zu : in der französischen Originalfassung heisst es, die Botanik nehme innerhalb der medizinischen Naturkunde einen grossen Teil ein ("histoire naturelle medicale, ou la botanique..."), dann folgt ohne Einschränkung oder Relativierung die weitere Aufzählung der übrigen Fachgebiete, und das Schlusszitat über die soziale Rolle bezieht sich dann speziell auf die Statistik: "et la statistique, dont [..]"). -- NETTOGEWICHT / POIDS NET > 100 kg : Liefermodus nach Vereinbarung / Mode de livraison selon accord.

        Dead Love [Thomas J. Wise Forgery]

      John W. Parker and Son, London - [1864], 1st Edition. () Very good. [1-5], 6-15pp. 12mo. Original printed self-wrappers. String bound and unopened. Paper at foot of spine has split (approximately 2"). Some sun fading and a few minor stains to edges of wrappers and first few pages, else a clean copy. An excellent, completely unsophisticated example of one of the infamous Thomas J. Wise (October 1859 - May 1937) forgeries. Wise was an accomplished book collector and bibliographer who completed bibliographies of several important 19th century authors. However, Wise was not content only to compile the extant, legitimate works of these authors and executed forgeries of "early" and "lost" pamphlets of Dickens, Browning, Swinburne, Eliot, Dante, and others. Wise, in association with fellow collector, dealer and bibliographer Harry Buxton Forman, "legitimized" these works in their bibliographies and sold them to collectors. The racket was exposed by John Carter and Graham Pollard in their 1934 book "An Enquiry into the Nature of Certain Nineteenth Century Pamphlets," which details the pamphlet offered here on pages 269-271. Ironically, a "forgery" of the forgery was issued; this copy is the "legitimate" forgery with the "L" of London above the final "R" of "Parker". An excellent example from on of the most notable and well-documented cases of biblioforgery on record. This copy sold by Sotheby's on 14 Feb 1972 with their original catalogue description and receipt from the sale. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Autograph letter signed to Archibald Smith

      Southampton: , 1864 Southampton, 1864. James, Henry (1803-77). Autograph letter signed to Archibald Smith. 4pp. London, November 8, 1864. 184 x 117 mm. Fine. From Sir Henry James, director-general of the Ordnance Survey (the British government mapping agency), to Scottish lawyer and mathematician Archibald Smith, best known for his work on magnetism and the Earth?s magnetic field, particularly in relation to navigation. James? letter discusses the survey of Jerusalem (then part of the Ottoman Empire) which was being performed by the Ordnance Survey for the purpose of improving the city?s water supply and sanitary services (the results of this survey were published in 1865 under the title Ordnance Survey of Jerusalem). Smith was an advocate of the Royal Society?s proposal that pendulum measurements of the Dead Sea elevation be taken during this survey; James replied as follows: " . . . As regards the proposal of the Royal Society, which you have recommended them to support, to have pendulum observations taken in the Valley of the Dead Sea, I need not say how fully I recognize the interest and importance of having such observations taken, but we have not one with the present party, who without special instruction and training could take the observations, and if there was any one so qualified, we should have no funds out of which the cost of taking them could be paid. I think the present is a most favorable time for having the exact difference of level taken between the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea . . . But if anything is to be done, no time must be lost, as it is necessary that the observers and instruments should be at Jerusalem before the survey is finished, and before the hot weather returns . . . "If the Council of the Royal Society, with the concurrence of the Astronomer Royal, should memorialize the Lords of H. M. Treasury to avail themselves of this opportunity for getting these important observations made, I think it very probable their consent and the necessary funds would be granted." Smith?s advocacy of the Jerusalem pendulum project evidently paid off: The Royal Society and the Royal Geographical Society each contributed £100 towards the cost of the pendulum work and the Ordnance Survey team was able to make accurate measurements of the difference between the levels of the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea (see Wilson).

        GRAND PANORAMA OF THE WAR! WHILE OUR FATHERS AND BROTHERS ARE FIGHTING FOR OUR LIBERTIES, COME AND VIEW THE SCENES THAT HAVE TAKEN PLACE ON THE BATTLE GROUNDS, PREPARED BY THE BEST ARTISTS IN THE WORLD, EMBRACING OVER 60 SCENES IN THE PRESENT WAR

      [Boston?]. 1864.. Broadside, 17 1/2 x 6 inches. Ornamental border. Foxing, some wear along the edges. Small hole in upper border, likely where nailed for display. Good. An apparently unrecorded broadside advertising the display of a massive panorama of Civil War battles. Penciled information on this broadside indicates that the panorama could be viewed at Brimfield, Massachusetts on Wednesday, October 26, 1864, and William Gay is identified as the "delineator" of the presentation. Nearly all the major battles of the war would be depicted, including Fort Sumter, Bull Run, Wilson's Creek, the bombardment of Vicksburg, Gettysburg, Ball's Bluff, the engagement of the Monitor and the Merrimac, Pea Ridge in Arkansas, Antietam, Vicksburg, Fort Donelson, and much more. There are also portraits of Lincoln, Jefferson Davis, Ulysses S. Grant, a group of rebel prisoners at Fort Donelson, a panoramic view of New Orleans, and a potentially gruesome view of "the effect of one cannon ball." Following the panorama of war scenes would be a comic interlude, and the evening concludes with a "series of National Chromotypes" and a "new and beautiful design of the Stars and Stripes revolving around Washington, the Father of our Country." We can find no copies of this broadside listed in OCLC, nor are we able to find any other information about William Gay or his panorama. It is well known that during the Civil War crowds of civilians would gather at the edges of battles to watch as they unfolded. This broadside is rare evidence of the public's continued fascination with images of battles during the war itself, exhibited in an exciting form to a mass viewership.

        O Proischozhdenii Vodov... [Russian: On the Origin of Species]. Perevel c anglijskago [translated from Eglish by] S.A. Rachinsky.

      S.-Peterburg, 1864. 8vo. Bound in a beautiful recent pastiche-binding of red half calf with blue marbled paper over boards. Five raised bands and elegant gilding to spine. End-papers renewed. A bit of damp staining and a bit of brownspotting. A very nice and fine copy. XIV, 399, (1) pp. + 4 pp. of advertisements + 1 plate.. Extremely rare first edition of the first Russian translation of Darwin's "Origin of Species", a main reason for the widespread effect of Darwinism in Russia, where the theory met less resistance in the 1860'ies than it did in Western Europe. In Russia Darwinism had a profound influence not only upon the different sciences, but also on philosophy, economic and political thought, and the great literature of the period. For instance, both Tolstoy and Dostoevsky referenced Darwin in their most important works, as did numerous other thinkers of the period."In 1864, S.A. Rachinsky, professor of plant physiology at St. Petersburg University, produced the first Russian translation of the "Origin". Although not a masterpiece of translation art, the book sold out so quickly that in 1865 it went through a second printing. By this time Darwin's ideas were discussed not only by scientists but also by such popular writers as Dmitri Pisarev and M. A. Antinovich." (Glick, p. 232). Rachinsky began translating the "Origin" in 1862 and wrote an important article on the theories presented in it, while working on the translation. This article and the translation of the "Origin" into Russian were responsible for the great success and rapid, widespread knowledge of Darwinian theory of evolution in Russia. "Darwin was concerned that the "Origin of Species" reach naturalists across the world, but translations of that complicated work raised problems for Darwin. If he found it difficult to make the reader "understand what is meant" in England and America, at least in those two countries he and the reader were discussing the "Origin of Species" in the same language. Foreign language editions raised not only the thorny question of translating Darwinian terms, but also the problem of translators, who often thought it proper to annotate their editions to explain the "significance" of Darwinism. The first Russian translation of the "Origin of Species" (1864) appeared, however, without any comment whatever by the translator, Sergei A. Rachinsky, professor of botany at the University of Moscow. Rachinsky had begun the translation in 1862 and published an article on Darwinism while continuing work on the translation in 1863." (Rogers, p. 485). In the year of publication of the translation, 1864, Pisarev wrote a long article in "The Russian Word", which purports to be a review of this translation; the critic complains about the absence of notes and commentaries by the translator. Pisarev furthermore points to several errors in the translation and to numerous infelicities of expression. Acknowledging the importance of the work, however, and of the spreading of Darwinism in Russia, he goes on in his own essay to provide a much more popular account of Darwin's theory and to impress upon his readers its revolutionary significance.Nikolai Strakhov also reviewed the translation immediately upon publication, acknowledging the effect it would have. Strakhov, however, recognized potential dangers inherent in the theory and expressed them in his review of Rachinsky's translation. He praised the work for its thoroughness and rejoiced in the evidence that man constituted the highest stage of organic development; but then he went on to argue that by moving into questions of philosophy and theology, the Darwinists were exceeding the limits of scientific evidence. Like Pisarev, Tolstoy enthusiastically embraced Darwinism. "The first mention of Darwin in Tolstoy's literary "Nachlass" is found in one of the drafts to "War and Peace". There Darwin is listed, apparently quite favorably, among leading thinkers "working toward new truth" [...] Thus by the late 1860's the name of Darwin as a leading scientist was already familiar to Tolstoy and duly respected." (McLean, p. 160). A fact which is often overlooked is that Tolstoy actually knew Rachinsky quite well. Interestingly, it was in a letter to Rachinsky, in reply to a question about the structure of "Anna Karenina", that Tolstoy made the famous statement (that all Tolstoy scholars and lovers know by heart): "I am proud of the architecture - the arches are joined in such a way that you cannot discover where the keystone is". Like Strakhov, however, Dostoevsky, acknowledging the significance of the "Origin", saw the dangers of the theory. In the same year as the publication of Rachinsky's translation, he lets the narrator in "Notes from Underground" (1864) launch his attack on Darwinism , beginning: "As soon as they prove you, for instance, that you are descended from a monkey, then it's no use scowling, you just have to accept it."In "Crime and Punishment" (two years later, 1866) the Darwinian overtones inherent in Raskolnikov's theory of the extraordinary man are unmistakable. He describes the mechanism of "natural selection," where, according to the laws of nature, by the crossing of races and types, a "genius" would eventually emerge. In general, Darwinian themes and Darwin's name occur in many contexts in a large number of Dostoevsky's works.Freeman: 748.

        Memoirs of W.T. Sherman (inscribed by George Washington Morgan)

      First Edition of Sherman?s Memoirs with Scathing Inscription by Former Subordinate with an Axe to Grind Summary: On the front pastedown of Vol. I of Union General William T. Sherman?s Memoirs. General Morgan writes, ?The memoirs of General Sherman reflect his true character, the chief traits of which are vanity, envy and malice. He is the only commander who ever wrote a work to disparage his comrades, and the only one who never won a victory. As his reports disprove his memoirs, no further refutation is necessary.? Morgan?s dissent does not carry weight with historians, who view Sherman as one of the two or three most important Civil War generals, whose conquest of Atlanta helped Lincoln win reelection in 1864.  George Washington Morgan. Inscribed Book. Memoirs of W.T. Sherman. New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1875, 1st edition, 2 vols. (Vol. I, 405 pp., Vol. II, 409 pp.), blue cloth, rear pastedown in Vol. II forms pocket for 30 x 47? map of Sherman?s marches from 1863-1865.#21670        $1,900 Historical Background:Sherman was one of the first Civil War generals to publish a memoir, just ten years after the end of the war. The memoirs were controversial, sparking complaints from many quarters. Though some felt Sherman did not give Ulysses Grant his full measure of credit, Grant later remarked that ?when I finished the book, I found I approved every word; that ... it was a true book, an honorable book, creditable to Sherman, just to his companions ? to myself particularly so...? Henry Boynton, an Ohio journalist, published a book-length critique of Sherman?s Memoirs using the official records then available. In particular, he exonerated General Morgan, and the three other division commanders who fought under Sherman at the failed Battle of Chickasaw Bluffs on December 29, 1862, using Sherman?s own post-battle report. George Washington Morgan (1820-1893) was an Ohio-born soldier, lawyer, and politician. He fought in the Texas Revolution and the Mexican-American War, and was a general in the Union Army during the Civil War. Morgan later served as a three-term Democratic Congressman from Ohio. Morgan first served under Sherman during the Vicksburg campaign. He later upset Sherman when he failed to execute an attack at the battle of Chickasaw Bluffs.  Condition: Minor soil on covers, spine ends worn and corners bumped, and light even toning. Map has partial separations, one torn panel that was folded to outside of pocket.

        Autographed Letter Signed as a Congressman

      Baltimore, 1864. hardcover. 2 pages, 8 x 5 inches, Baltimore, Maryland, February 18, 1864. Interesting war-date autographed letter signed "J.A. Garfield," written while a first-term Congressman suffering severe economic setbacks, in part: "...I had a long talk with Jenkins...I gave him authority to order the sale - if it should seem best to him to sell before my return. He thinks the stock will be kept down about where it is for a week yet...It promises well...Keep an eye out - and see if there is not some opening for business..." Boldly signed; horizontal folds. Near fine. In 1864 Garfield partnered with Congressman Ralph Plumb in land speculation hoping to become wealthy, but this met with limited success. He then joined with the Philadelphia-based Phillips brothers in an oil exploration investment which was scarcely profitable. The failure of these businesses forced him to resume the practice of law in 1865 in order to make ends meet.

Since this report was published while the Civil War was still being fought, the section on "Schools for Colored Children" may be of some interest: "There is no section of the law nor any decision of the courts that deprives colored children of the advantages of public school instruction… it shall be the duty of the trustees of the several school districts to apply the money apportioned … to the establishing and maintaining of free schools … in which shall be taught… all the children… the law makes no distinction between children of one nationality, or race, and children of another…" A fold-out chart (SEE PHOTO) lists 27 key education statistics for each of the state's 21 counties. For example, one column records the "Number of colored children who have attended school" in each county, and a statewide total (3,029).

        Memoirs of the Analytical Society 1813.Cambidge: printed by J. Smith . . . and sold by Deighton & Sons [etc.],, 1813.

      First edition, extremely rare, of the only volume of the <i>Memoirs of the Analytical Society</i>, written entirely by Babbage and Herschel while students at Cambridge University. The aim of the society was to promote the Leibnizian approach to calculus as opposed to Newtonian fluxions or, as Babbage punningly described it, to promote "The Principle of pure D-ism in opposition to the Dot-age of the University" (Babbage 1864, p. 29). "The brief period of the society's existence is traditionally seen as a crucial moment in the adoption of the differential calculus within English mathematics" (ODNB). <br/><br/> &#10087;Origins of Cyberspace 17 (lacking last two leaves of the Babbage paper). OCLC lists two copies in the US (Brown and NYPL) and one in UK. <br/><br/> The preface to the volume, which sets out the manifesto of the Society, draws attention to what was to be a lasting preoccupation for Babbage, "the importance of adopting a clear and comprehensive notation" (p. xvi), which found its most important expression in the development of his symbolic notation for the action of the Difference and Analytical Engines.<br/><br/> As well as the 22-page preface, discussed in detail below, this volume contains Babbage's first published work, 'On continued products,' (pp. 1-31), and two papers by Herschel: 'On Trigonometrical Series, Particularly Those Whose Terms Are Multiplied by the Tangents, Cotangents, Secants, &c. of Quantities in Arithmetic Progression, Together with Some Singular Transformations; with Notes Relating to a Variety of Subjects Connected with the Preceding Memoir,' pp. 33-64; "On equations of differences and their application to the determination of functions from given conditions", pp. 65-114. <br/><br/> Cambridge in the late eighteenth century was intellectually stagnant, as a result of its attachment to Newtonianism and prejudice against French ideas. British mathematics of the time was a tool for understanding Isaac Newton's <i>Principia</i>-which was viewed as the cornerstone of human knowledge of both God and the natural world. Modern French algebraic analysis was viewed by many as a symbol of the recent political upheavals in France; it was the horrifying result of human intellect set free from all social restraints. The abstract nature of a pure algebraic analysis seemingly allowed the mind to wander into fantasy through the meaningless manipulation of symbols. It was further connected with a mechanical and industrial view of the mind. Pure mathematics was thus not seen as an appropriate part of a Cambridge education. Instead all textbooks were dependent on geometric figures and were applicable to specific physical foundations, rather than algebraic abstractions and mathematical generalization. <br/><br/> It was in this context that the Analytical Society was founded by Babbage (1791-1871) and Herschel (1792-1871), at the time both undergraduate students; other early participants included George Peacock and William Whewell. Its purpose was to import the most powerful techniques of continental mathematical analysis and replace the Newtonian fluxional 'dot' notation with the <i>d</i>s of Leibnizian differentials. They hoped thereby to connect with a "century of foreign improvement" in the calculus (p. xv). Its inspiration derived from predominantly French mathematicians and men of science such as Pierre-Simon Laplace, Joseph Louis Lagrange, and Sylvestre Lacroix. The latter's <i>Sur le calcul différentiel et integral</i> (1802), in particular, was deemed by Babbage to be "so perfect that any comment was unnecessary" (Babbage 1864, p. 28). The society met for the first time in May 1812 and held monthly meetings during the Cambridge terms. Although there is no evidence of formal activity by the society after the end of 1813, a few years later Part I of Lacroix's work, on differential calculus, was translated by Babbage; Part II, on integral calculus, was translated jointly by Peacock and Herschel. These, together with an "Appendix" written by Herschel, and notes by Herschel and Peacock, were published in 1816 as <i>An elementary treatise on the differential and integral calculus</i>.<br/><br/> "The Analytical Society's philosophical claims were set out in the lengthy preface to the <i>Memoirs of the Analytical Society</i> published in December 1813. 'Our business', they wrote, 'is exclusively with the pure Analytics' (p. ii, note). It is not a coincidence that in the preface the history of the differential calculus is played out in synchronization with its mathematical principles. Notation mirrored this development, since with the advancement of science and complex calculations the need for a clear and comprehensive notation was shown to be necessary. Thus as science progressed so did notation, and, more important, the process of discovery was accelerated. The ultimate extension of notation came with 'defining the result of every operation that can be performed on quantity, by the general term of function, and expressing this generalization by a characteristic letter' (p. xvi). The true operation of the mind was based on the principle that linked all discoveries. The tools for this were abstract operations, an algebraic machine that chiseled out such discoveries. The Cambridge establishment was furious when George Peacock, a former-albeit inactive-member of the Analytical Society, introduced the d notation into the exam papers of 1817" (ODNB). <br/><br/> Whewell also introduced continental analysis into the Cambridge mathematical tripos through his popular <i>An elementary treatise on mechanics</i> (1819) but, to Babbage's great disappointment, fully clothed within the traditional dress of Newtonian mechanics. The Analytical Society had failed to realize its ambitions at Cambridge and looked south to London as a more fertile place to launch their project. In the end Herschel and Babbage joined a number of other like-minded people and established the Astronomical Society of London in 1820. <br/><br/> Babbage and Herschel remained lifelong friends. Herschel supported Babbage through personal encouragement, service on the Royal Society committees specially convened to advise on the utility of Babbage's Engines, and through his advocacy for continued government investment in their construction. In 1827, shattered by the death of his wife, father and second son in the space of a year, Babbage sought solace with the Herschels in Slough in the rural outskirts of London. When Babbage left shortly after for an extended tour of the Continent, it was to Herschel that he entrusted the construction of the Engine. Herschel attempted to restrain his friend's excesses, especially Babbage's public diatribes against the Royal Society and his sarcastic attacks on prominent figures. When shown a pre-publication draft of Babbage's vehement attack on the scientific establishment, <i>Reflections on the Decline of Science in England, and on some of its Causes</i> (1830), Herschel wrote that he deserved 'a good slap in the face' and that he should burn the manuscript. Babbage took no heed, published and was damned. The contrast between the two friends, and their relative success in their lifetime, is telling. Herschel died five months before Babbage. In a letter to his widow Babbage described Herschel as 'one of the earliest and most valued friends of my life'. <br/><br/> Babbage, <i>Passages from the Life of a Philosopher</i>, 1864; A. W.

        Autograph letter signed to Archibald Smith

      London, 1864. Galton, Francis (1822-1911). Autograph letter signed to Archibald Smith (1813-72). 4pp. London, November 11, 1864. 179 x 113 mm. Light oil-stain in lower margins, but very good otherwise. From Galton to Scottish lawyer and mathematician Archibald Smith, best known for his work on magnetism and the Earth?s magnetic field, particularly in relation to navigation. Galton was (among many other things) a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society; he devoted the whole of his letter to Smith to geographical subjects, beginning with a discussion of the measurement of the Dead Sea?s elevation: "Sir H. James is really in error in believing that the elevation of the Dead Sea has never been determined by actual levelling. In 1843 Lieut. Symonds R.E. received the gold medal of the Geographical Society for having triangulated & levelled between the Mediterranean and Dead Sea. He did his work very carefully. You will see an account of it in Vols. 12 & 13 of the Geograph. Society?s transactions, in the first in the President?s address & in the second in the President?s speech, when he gave the gold medal. I had thought, but I believe now I was wrong, that it had also been levelled in more recent years, but I see that Lynch only used barometers & I suppose (from you not having referred to him) that Van der Welde did the same." Galton here refers to the measurement of the level of the Dead Sea by Lieutenant John F. A. Symonds (d. 1852), the leader of the Royal Engineers? survey of Palestine undertaken in 1841. As Galton notes, this achievement earned Symonds the Royal Geographical Society?s gold medal in 1843. Galton also mentions the measurement made by William F. Lynch (1801-65), leader of the U.S. Navy?s 1848 expedition to Jordan and the Dead Sea. ?Van der Welde? refers to Dutch cartographer Carel W. M. Van de Velde (1818-98), who published a map of Palestine in 1858; Van de Velde did not do any surveying, however, and his Dead Sea measurements were taken from Symonds. ?Sir H. James? is Sir Henry James (1803-77), who served as the director-general of the British government?s Ordnance Survey from 1854 to 1875. Galton next brings up the question of whether Smith would ?press the pendulum matter? before the Geographical Society: "If you do not think it well to press the pendulum matter, pure & simple, there remains nothing else for our Society to take up but if you do care to press it I will move at our meeting of council on Monday that a committee should be formed consisting say of Everest Waugh Spottiswoode & one or two others, to examine the question & report to the ensuing meeting. They would then communicate with you, Sabine & the Astronomer Royal, & no time would be lost. I know Everest to be very keen about pendulum experiments being now established in many places, & I think he would greatly assist. . . ." Galton here is referring to the Royal Society?s proposal, supported by Smith, that pendulum measurements of the Dead Sea elevation be made as part of the Ordnance Survey?s survey of Jerusalem, then in progress. The Jerusalem survey at first lacked both the money and the trained personnel necessary to perform these measurements, but Smith?s advocacy of the project evidently paid off: The Royal Society and the Royal Geographical Society each contributed £100 towards the cost of the pendulum work and the Ordnance Survey team was able to make accurate measurements of the difference between the levels of the Mediterranean and the Dead Sea (see Wilson, Ordnance Survey of Jerusalem). ?Everest? is Sir George Everest (1790-1866), Surveyor-General of India from 1830 to 1843 and the namesake of Mount Everest; ?Waugh? is Sir Andrew Scott Waugh (1810-78), who succeeded Everest as Surveyor-General of India and who was responsible for naming Mount Everest after his predecessor; ?Spottiswoode? is mathematician and physicist William Spottiswoode (1825-83), who served on the council of the Royal Geographical Society from 1862 to 1864. Spottiswoode was the author of On Typical Mountain Ranges: An Application of the Calculus of Probabilities to Physical Geography (1861), a work that Galton credited with inspiring him to apply statistics in the social sciences. ?Sabine? is Edward Sabine (1788-1883), head of the British Government?s magnetic survey of the Earth, who in the 1820s had used pendulum observations made in various latitudes to come up with the most accurate assessment of the Earth?s shape and size that had yet been made. The Astronomer Royal, also mentioned in Galton?s letter, was George Biddell Airy (1801-92), who, among many other accomplishments, established Greenwich as the location of the prime meridian.
