        Principia mathematica.Cambridge: at the University Press, 1910-12-13.

      First edition of all three volumes of this monumental work. Complete sets of the first edition which, like ours, are not ex-library, are very rare on the market - only two such copies have sold at auction in the past 25 years. Probably named after Isaac Newton's great work, "<i>Principia Mathematica</i> was Whitehead and Russell's detailed account of their 'logicist' thesis that mathematics could be derived solely from logical concepts and by logical methods...[it] has had an influence, direct and indirect, of near Newtonian proportions upon the spheres of its chief influence: mathematical logic, set theory, the foundations of mathematics, linguistic analysis and analytical philosophy" (Grattan-Guinness, p. 89). "Whether they know it or not, all modern logicians are the heirs of Whitehead and Russell" (<i>Palgrave</i>, p. 20). "After the failure of Frege's <i>Grundgesetze</i>, due to Russell's paradox, it was the <i>Principia Mathematica</i> of Whitehead and Russell which first successfully developed mathematics within a logical framework" (<i>ibid</i>., p. 21). <br/><br/> ❧Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 16; The Collection of the Garden Ltd. 219; Norman 1868.<br/><br/> "Gottlob Frege had attempted to demonstrate logicism about arithmetic (though not geometry) in the period from 1879, when his first book, <i>Begriffsschrift</i>, was published, to 1903, when the second volume of his <i>Grundgesetze der Arithmetik</i> appeared. However, in 1902, as that second volume was in press, Russell had written to him informing him of the contradiction that he had discovered in Frege's system. Frege had attempted to respond to the contradiction - now known as Russell's paradox - in a hastily written appendix, but he soon realized that his response was inadequate and abandoned his logicist project. It was left to Russell to find a solution to the paradox and to reconstruct the logicist program accordingly. The final result was Russell's ramified theory of types and <i>Principia Mathematica</i> itself, but this theory and the logicist reconstruction in which it is embedded took a decade to develop" (<i>ibid</i>., p. viii). <br/><br/> "<i>Principia Mathematica</i> had its origins in Russell's discovery of the work of Peano at the International Congress of Philosophy held in Paris in the summer of 1900, which Peano and his supporters attended in force. To that time Russell had been working for several years attempting to develop a satisfactory philosophy of mathematics. Despite some philosophical successes ... a satisfactory outcome had always eluded him. At the conference, however, he very quickly realized that the Peano school had a set of techniques of which he could make use, and on his return from the conference he immediately set about applying them. As a result, he quickly rewrote <i>The Principles of Mathematics</i>, which he had started in 1899, finishing the new version by the end of the year. It was published, after some delay and substantial revisions of Part I, in 1903, billed as the first of two volumes. It was intended as a philosophical introduction to, and defence of, the logicist program that all mathematical concepts could be defined in terms of logic and that all mathematical theorems could be derived from purely logical axioms. It was to be followed by a second volume, done in Peano's notation, in which the logicist program would actually be carried out by providing the requisite definitions and proofs. At about the same time that Russell was finishing <i>The Principles of Mathematics</i>, he began the collaboration with his former teacher, Whitehead, that produced, many years later, <i>Principia Mathematica</i>. <br/><br/> "Whitehead in 1898 had published <i>A Treatise on Universal Algebra</i>, another first volume, in which a variety of symbolic systems were interpreted on a general, abstract conception of space. Again much detailed formal work was held over for the second volume. By September 1902 the two second volumes had merged, both authors having decided to unite in producing a joint second volume to each of their projects. This in turn grew until it constituted the three volumes of <i>Principia Mathematica</i>. The reason for the long delay in completing [<i>Principia Mathematica</i>] ... was the difficulty in dealing with a paradox that Russell had discovered around May 1901 in the set-theoretic basis of the logicist system. The natural initial supposition of that system was that a class would correspond to each propositional function of the system, intuitively the class of terms which satisfied that propositional function. This being the case, there would be a class corresponding to the propositional function '<i>x</i> is not a member of itself', and this class would be a member of itself if and only if it was not a member of itself. The problem of restricting the underlying logic so that this result could not arise while leaving it strong enough to support the mathematical superstructure that Russell and Whitehead wished to build on it absorbed many years of intense labour" (<i>ibid</i>., pp. xvi-xvii). <br/><br/> "<i>Principia Mathematica</i> proved to be remarkably influential in at least three ways. First, it popularized modern mathematical logic to an extent undreamt of by its authors. By using a notation superior to that used by Frege, Whitehead and Russell managed to convey the remarkable expressive power of modern predicate logic in a way that previous writers had been unable to achieve. Second, by exhibiting so clearly the deductive power of the new logic, Whitehead and Russell were able to show how powerful the idea of a modern formal system could be, thus opening up new work in what soon was to be called metalogic. Third, <i>Principia Mathematica</i> re-affirmed clear and interesting connections between logicism and two of the main branches of traditional philosophy, namely metaphysics and epistemology, thereby initiating new and interesting work in both of these areas. <br/><br/> "As a result, not only did <i>Principia</i> introduce a wide range of philosophically rich notions (including propositional function, logical construction, and type theory), it also set the stage for the discovery of crucial metatheoretic results (including those of Kurt Gödel, Alonzo Church, Alan Turing and others). Just as importantly, it initiated a tradition of common technical work in fields as diverse as philosophy, mathematics, linguistics, economics and computer science" (<i>Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy</i>).<br/><br/> "Although they divided up the initial responsibility for the various parts of the project, they checked each other's work and in the end produced a truly collaborative text. 'Whitehead and I make alternate recensions of the various parts of our book,' Russell explained to P. E. B. Jourdain in a letter of March 1906, 'each correcting the last recension made by the other.' There were relatively few periods of extensive personal contact between them; indeed, during the period from the autumn of 1906 to the autumn of 1909, when most of <i>Principia Mathematica</i> was actually written, Whitehead lived in Cambridge and Russell in Oxford" (Grattan-Guinness, p. 90). The final manuscript, of more than 4000 folios, was delivered to the printers on 19 October, 1909 (only a few leaves of the original manuscript are known to have survived). Publication was delayed by financial problems. In the end, Cambridge University Press contributed £300 to the cost of publication, a further £200 was obtained from the Royal Society, and the authors contributed £50 each (the latter contributions were refunded by the Press some 40 years later - but without interest!). <br/><br/> The first volume of <i>Principia Mathematica</i> was published in December 1910 in an edition of 750 copies, priced 25 shillings; volumes II and III had a print run of only 500 copies, and were priced at 30 shillings and 21 shillings, respectively. A fourth volume, dealing with the applications to geometry, was planned and much of it written, by Whitehead alone, but never published and the manuscript was destroyed shortly after his death in 1947. Complimentary copies were sent by the authors to the library of Trinity College, Cambridge (of which they both were or had been Fellows), R. G. Hawtrey (who checked over some of the text while it had been in preparation), G. G. Berry (a clerk at the Bodleian Library with remarkable abilities in mathematical logic), and Jourdain (this was the copy in the library of Haskell F. Norman). The Press sent copies to G. Peano, G. Frege, L. Couturat, J. Royce, W. E. Johnson (who had examined the manuscript for the Press), E. W. Hobson and A. R. Forsyth. Review copies were also issued, including one to G. H. Hardy. <br/><br/> The book was not a best seller. In his review of the book in the <i>Times Literary Supplement</i>, Hardy wrote: "Perhaps twenty or thirty people in England may be expected to read this book." Erwin Schrödinger went further: he said that he didn't believe that even Whitehead and Russell themselves had read all of it. Nevertheless, by the early 1920s the work was going out of print and a second edition, with three new appendices and a long new introduction, all written by Russell himself, was published in 1925-27. After 1927 Russell withdrew from logic. "After the massive achievement of <i>Principia Mathematica</i>, nothing remained but a job of cleaning up the formal foundations, a task that was essentially completed by the early 1930s, as a result of the work of Ramsey, Gödel and Tarski" (Palgrave, p. 14). <br/><br/> Norman 1868; Blackwell & Ruja A9.1a; Church, <i>Bibliography of Symbolic Logic</i>, 194.1-1 (one of a handful of works marked by Church as being "of special interest or importance"); Martin 101.01-03; Kneebone, <i>Mathematical Logic</i> (1963), p. 161ff; <i>Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics 1640-1940</i>, Chapter 61; <i>The Palgrave Centenary Companion to Principia Mathematica</i>, N.

[1], 200-275, [3]pp. Text illustrations. 222 x 145 mm. Original plain wrappers, small split in spine. Light toning, but a fine copy. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 779. The invention of the Stromuhr, a double vessel on a swivel for measuring blood volume flow. "An accurate method of measuring blood flow was not available until 1868, when Dogiel, working in Ludwig's laboratory, described the 'Stromuhr'" (Fishman & Richards, Circulation of the Blood: Men and Ideas, p. 679). Dogiel was a student of Carl Ludwig, professor of physiology at the University of Leipzig; "so far as the advancement of knowledge of the circulation is concerned, and particularly the action of the heart, Carl Ludwig and his school probably contributed a larger share than any other group" (ibid., p. 87).

      Brooklyn: D.S. Holmes, [1868].. Broadside, 13 x 10 inches. Some small tears, chipping and loss to top and right edges. Minor foxing. Very good. Broadside printed for the U.S. Presidential Campaign of 1868, which pitted former New York Governor Horatio Seymour against Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. This broadside points out Seymour's Copperhead tendencies and statements made by him in 1864, linking him to similar sentiments made by notorious traitor Benedict Arnold. Seymour's Copperhead utterances during the war haunted his campaign, and he lost decisively to Grant. The text printed here strives to demonstrate: ^"...the points made by Horatio Seymour against the Administration in 1864 [re] identical, point by point, with those made by Benedict Arnold against Washington and the Continental Congress in 1780....The Copperhead chiefs of these times, who draw so lavishly upon the sophistries and fallacies of 1780 for the furtherance of their factious designs, cannot too well understand that the sequel to all this is endless disgrace. They must not expect to fight the Government with weapons of the Tories and of the blue-light Federalists, without sharing the same fate." ^OCLC locates three copies (incorrectly dated 1864), at the New-York Historical Society, the Library Company, and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.

        Autograph memorandum.

      No place, [c. 1868]. - 8vo (206 x 134 mm). 3 pp. on a single bifolium. Autograph memorandum, bearing instructions for the preparation of the map appearing in his "Saint Paul" (1869), the third (and arguably best) part of Renan&#146;s "Histoire des origines du christianisme", the magnum opus which had begun in 1863 with "Vie de Jésus" and became a succès de scandale. Published by Michel Lévy Frères in 1869, "Saint Paul" contained the fruits of the journey Renan made with his wife Cornélie Scheffer following in the footsteps of the historical Paul. It also contained a detailed map with coloured itineraries of each of the journeys. The present memorandum provides the colour-coding for each of these, together with no less than 33 amendments to the details of the map. - Offered with a carte de visite of the architect Edmond Guillaume (1826-94) with Renan&#146;s autograph pencil notes to verso giving directions to his house in Sèvres (tipped to paper mount) and a letter (20 May 1893) from Noémie Psichari, Renan&#146;s daughter. - Provenance: Von Scholl collection.

        The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication

      London: John Murray,, 1868. In two volumes. With illustrations. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth, blind-panelled covers, titles to spines gilt, dark blue-coated endpapers. 43 text woodcuts. Bookplate of King's College, Cambridge. Extremities lightly bumped, mild rubbing to spine, short area of very light wear at head of first joint on each volume, very mild cockling on first volume, minor marks to covers and endpapers, stitching slightly strained in places. Overall, a very good copy, with the cloth bright and fresh. First edition, second issue. The term "survival of the fittest" (borrowed at Wallace's insistence from Herbert Spencer's 1866 Principles of Biology) was first used by Darwin in the first edition of this work, preceding its first use in the fifth edition of the Origin of Species (1869). Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication was a full statement of the facts on which the theories of the Origin of Species were based, though leaving aside an account of human evolution for The Descent of Man (1871). Though Darwin studied at Christ's College rather than King's, he enjoyed attending concerts in King's College Chapel.

        The "Ever-Victorious Army" A History of the Chinese Campaign under Lt.-Col. C. G. Gordon, C.B. R.E. and of the Suppression of the Tai-Ping Rebellion

      Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1868. Octavo, with six six folding maps, a most attractive copy in contemporary red polished calf with gilt ornament. Gordon in China - the formative years. An account of the Tai-ping rebellion against the Qing dynasty (1850 to 1864) with special detail of the operations of the 'Ever-Victorious Army', an elite force of Chinese troops trained in modern methods under European command. The 'Ever-Victorious Army' came under the authority of Lieutenant-Colonel (later General) Charles Gordon, a legendary figure in British colonial history renowned for his heroic death at the hands of the Mahdi's army after the fall of Khartoum. This book concerns an earlier phase in Gordon's career - the event that won him his nickname Charles "Chinese" Gordon. The Taiping rebellion was a widespread peasant revolt that led to immense loss of life through ensuing disturbance and famines. Fatality estimates vary between 20 and 30 million persons. This account, sympathetic to Chinese interests and somewhat critical of British policy, is the work of journalist Andrew Wilson (1831-1881), born in India to colonial missionaries and later editor of the China Mail and Bombay Times.

      St. Petersburg: I. I. Glazunov,, 1868. [The Theory of Moral Sentiments ... With the letters of M. Condorcet to Cabanis on sympathy. Translated by P. A. Bibikov]. Octavo (207 × 135 mm), pp. 515 + 4pp. contents. Contemporary half diced blue roan and marbled boards, spine ruled and decorated gilt, marbled endpapers. Small Russian stamp to front free endpaper and annotation in ballpoint to rear endpaper. Short crack at foot of front board, spine gilding a little faded, extremities lightly rubbed. Marginal damp mark to first and last few leaves. A very good copy. First edition in Russian of The Theory of Moral Sentiments, very rare. This landmark translation (it is still the one used in Russia today) was made by Pavel Bibikov, who had brought out a translation of the Wealth of Nations (the edition read by Lenin) two years before. Both were published as part of his series the Library of Classical European Writers. "Bibikov [1831?"1875] already had a reputation as a historian, philosopher, and literary critic, and this undoubtedly had a part in the generally high level of presentation of the translations" (Artemieva, p. 160). The translations were probably made via French, but whereas Bibikov's Wealth of Nations was superceded by the end of the century, his Theory of Moral Sentiments remained the only Russian version available until 1997.

        Die Natur der chemischen Elemente als Function ihrer Atomgewichte; von Lothar Meyer (Hierzu Tafel III.) (pp.354-363, 1 gefalt. Taf.).

      - Ann. Chem. Pharm., Suppl. 6+7. - Leipzig und Heidelberg, C.F. Winter'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1868, 8°, (4), 390 pp., 3 Taf.; 1870, 8°, (4), 380 pp., 3 gefalt. Tafeln, geprägter Leinenband d.Zt; Rücken erneuert, feines Exemplar. First appearance in print of this groundbreaking, classic paper in which Lothar Meyer (1830-1890) first fully expressed his ideas of the relationships between the atomic weight of the elements and their properties. - The Periodic Law. - - "This law, which was discovered independently and almost at the same time*, in 1868-9, by the German chemist, Lothar Meyer and by the Russian chemist, Mendeleeff, may be stated in the words: The properties of the elements are a periodic function of (or vary in a periodic manner with) the atomic weight." - - "On arranging the elements in the order of their atomic weights, as then known, and keeping in view the possibility of undiscovered elements, a remarkable recurrence of properties was observed. This periodicity was rendered very clear by Lothar Meyer in the case of physical properties, by plotting the values of the physical property, e.g., the atomic volume (volume of 1 gram multiplied by the atomic weight), against the atomic weights of the elements. On joining together the different points, the curve shown in Fig. 1 (see the plate) was obtained. The periodic variation of the atomic volume is thus represented very clearly; and it will be observed that elements of similar chemical properties, e.g., the alkali metals, occur at corresponding points on the different parts of the curve." - - Not only was periodicity observed in the case of physical properties but it was equally evident in respect of the general chemical properties and of the valency. Thus, when the elements were arranged in order of ascending atomic weights and in accordance with the valence, Lothar Meyer and Mendeléeff showed that they fell into a number of groups or families of related elements, or elements having analogous properties. In this way a natural classification of the elements, depending on the relation between the chemical properties of the elements and their atomic weights, was obtained. This is the so-called periodic classification of the elements." - - "If the periodic law had important practical applications, the recognition of its essential validity also greatly stimulated speculation and investigation into the genesis of the elements, for as Lord Salisbury said: "The discovery of co-ordinate families dimly points to some identical origin, without suggesting the method of their genesis or the nature of their common parentage." On these questions much light was thrown by the experimental investigations of the closing decades of the nineteenth century and the opening decades of the twentieth century, and out of these there developed the theory of the electronic constitution of matter by means of which the periodic law receives interpretation." Alexander Findlay, A Hundred Years in Chemistry. 2nd. ed. (1848), pp.49-54 - - *) "The question of priority in the discovery of the periodic law gave rise to some controversy. The first clear statement of the periodic law seems to have been published by Mendeléeff in 1869, but in 1868 a classification of the elements, similar to that published by Mendeléeff in 1872, had been drawn up, although not published, by Lothar Meyer who, even in 1864, had published tables of the elements which may be regarded as forerunners of the periodic classification. Honours may be regarded as even, and were recognized as such by the Royal Society which awarded the Davy Medal to both scientists in 1882. (See G. Rudorf, The Periodic System.)"

Schüler Wilhelm von Schadows, dem er 1826 nach Düsseldorf folgte, und begleitete ihn 1829 nach Belgien, 1830/31 nach Italien. 1844 unternahm er eine Studienreise nach St. Petersburg, wo das Bild Newa bei St. Petersburg im Winter entstand. Seit 1832 unterrichtete er an der Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf und erhielt 1836 eine Professur, die er 1854 wegen Erkrankung niederlegte. Seit 1858 offiziell beurlaubt, bildete er von 1866-69 dennoch in einer Meisterklasse Maler aus. Er gehörte zu den Begründern der romantisch-poetischen Richtung der Düsseldorfer Malerei; er wirkte durch seine Maltechnik und Farbbehandlung schulbildend. Zu seinen Werken zählen "Die Räuber" (1829) und "Die Ermordung der Söhne Eduards IV." (1835), ferner zahlreiche Portraits.
