        Éléments d'économie politique pure ou théorie de la richesse sociale

      Lausanne: L. Corbaz & Cie, Paris: Guillaumin & Cie, Basel: H. Georg,, 1874-1877. 2 parts in one octavo volume (210 × 137 mm). Contemporary red pebble grained cloth, red pebbled calf spine, ruled and lettered gilt, marbled paper endpapers. With 3 folding plates comprising 15 figures. Reader's scattered pencil marginalia in French throughout. Spine ends and board edges rubbed, inner hinges cracked but firm. A very good copy. First edition of both parts, written by one of the leading mathematical economists. In 1874, three years after Jevons and Menger, but independently of them, Walras enunciated the theory of marginal utility in his Eléments d'Économie politique pure. In this work he continued and refined the work inherited from his father and was successful in developing the law of general equilibrium which made him famous. The work falls into two parts: one dealing with the theory of exchange (pp. 1-208), the other (pp. 209-377) with the theory of production. "The book regards exchange as the central economic phenomenon and treats all other branches of economic study in relation to this central fact" (Batson.) Walras operates with essentially the same concepts as Jevons, but he searches continuously for solutions of the most general character. Like Jevons and Menger, he bases exchange-value on utility and limitation of quantity. Following his father, he uses the term rareté, which he defines as the "dérivée de l'utilité effective par rapport à la quantité possédée". In other words, rareté is the same as marginal utility. The desire to equalize marginal utilities (according to Gossen's second law) will lead to exchange. And this desire, together with the stocks of goods possessed by each individual, will give a determinate demand or supply for each individual. This can be represented by a functional equation or by a curve. Walras was influenced by Cournot, and it was probably this influence which enabled him to combine a utility theory of value with a mathematically precise theory of market equilibrium. In spite, or because, of the difficulties which he experienced in this task, Walras was increasingly led to enunciate a general, non-utilitarian theory of economic equilibrium, expressed in terms of functional equations. He is, therefore, essentially the economist's economist, rather than of the general reader or the politician.

        The Principles of Science. A Treatise on Logic and Scientific Method

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1874. 2 volumes, octavo. Original brown pebble-grain cloth, spines lettered in gilt, green coated endpapers. Frontispiece with tissue guard. From the library of Bowdoin College with library tickets to spines and bookplate to front pastedowns. Spines rolled and cracked but holding, hinges starting tips worn, minor foxing to contents. A very good set. First edition of this pioneering work on logic and induction. Six years in the making, Jevons here argues against Baconian empirical procedure and in favour of the Newtonian approach: "I endeavour to show that hypothetical anticipation of nature is an essential part of inductive inquiry, and that it is the Newtonian method of deductive reasoning combined with elaborate experimental verification, which has led to all the greatest triumphs of scientific research" (p. vii). He asserts that the empirical sciences stem from logic and takes the inverse method of probabilities as an inductive ideal, arguing that "the logical value of every inductive result must be determined consciously or unconsciously, according to the principles of the inverse method of probability" (p. vii). As early as 1865, Jevons began construction of a "reasoning machine, or logical abacus" (Papers, 4.69) which he demonstrated before the Royal Society in January 1870; it was later recognized as a forerunner of twentieth-century computers, and is held today at the History of Science Museum in Oxford (ODNB).

        5 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.,

      Göttingen, 1861-1874. - An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - „[.] Wöhler gilt als Pionier der organischen Chemie wegen seiner Synthese von Oxalsäure durch Hydrolyse von Dicyan 1824 und von Harnstoff aus Ammoniumcyanat im Jahre 1828. Diese Synthesen eröffneten das Feld der Biochemie, da zum ersten Mal Stoffe, die bisher nur von lebenden Organismen bekannt waren, aus ‚unbelebter‘ Materie künstlich erzeugt werden konnten. Diese In-vitro-Synthesen wurden zunächst von den Chemikern kaum wahrgenommen, da die Zeit dafür noch nicht reif war. Mit zunehmendem Erfolg der Chemiker auf dem Gebiet der organischen Synthesechemie sah man aber Wöhlers Synthese immer mehr als Beginn dieses Zweiges der Chemie an, womit sich rund um die Harnstoffsynthese geradezu ein ‚Schöpfungsmythos‘ der organischen Chemie entwickelte, der bis heute in vielen Chemielehrbüchern, aber auch historischen Darstellungen zu finden ist [.]" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Tlw. gefalt. bzw. mit min.

        Atlas of Cuyahoga County Ohio

      1874. LAKE, D.J. Atlas of Cuyahoga County Ohio. 205 pp. Illustrated with 48 views, of which two are double page, and 58 hand-coloured maps, of which 27 are double-page, including a double-page map of the United States. Tall folio, 410 x 370 mm, bound in original morocco-backed publisher's boards. Philadelphia: Titus, Simmons and Titus, 1874. |~||~| |~||~| An impressive example of nineteenth-century American bookmaking at its very best. The splendid hand-coloured maps were engraved by Worley and Bracher and the views were lithographed by H.J.Toudy. The first half of the atlas deals with the city of Cleveland with maps of the various wards and depictions of some of the houses of the more prosperous residents. The second part deals with the surrounding towns and villages. The opening double page view is signed A. Ruger. Presumably this is Albert Ruger a successful nineteenth-century artist who specialized in maps and city views. The views have a certain charming naive quality, but are a unique pictorial record of the development of America's cities in the second half of the nineteenth century. These nineteenth-century American atlases are now very uncommon especially complete and in good condition as here. Most copies have been segmented for the attractive individual views and framed separately. Binding a little worn and rubbed but sound, an unusually fine copy. Subject to a facsimile edition in 1975. |~||~||~||~|

When the first series appeared in 1875 some passages caused extreme offence.In 1874, when it became known that Greville's diary was going to be printed, the news caused an uproar. Queen Victoria wrote that she was "horrified and indignant at this dreadful and really scandalous book. Mr Greville's indiscretion, indelicacy, ingratitude, betrayal of confidence and shameful disloyalty towards his Sovereign make it very important that the book should be severely censored and discredited". She also said that "The tone in which he speaks of royalty is unlike anything which one sees in history, even of people hundreds of years ago, and is most reprehensible...Of George IV he speaks in such shocking language, language not fit for any gentleman to use".Victoria (Alexandrina Victoria; 24 May 1819 ?" 22 January 1901) was Queen of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland from 20 June 1837 until her death. From 1 May 1876, she used the additional title of Empress of India.Condition:Conditions are Good/Very Good.  Some wear to edges, missing a little leather to some corners, bookplates, tiny bit of gold touch up to a few corners, missing one upper spine label, pages/hinges/text blocks are very good for over 125/35 years old!!!

        Book of Mormon

      Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Plano, IL 1874 - Full brown leather binding with blind embossed design on front and back with gold gilt title and gold ruling within raised bands and five compartments. Rubbing to corners, boards and edges. Slight separation at top of spine but binding is firm. Marbled endpapers and faded marbling on edges. Front endpaper has slight separation at bottom. Edges are browned. Some foxing to the pages but interior is relatively clean. A few scattered pencil markings. Prior to this printing the RLDS used the 1858 James Wright published Book of Mormon, basically a re-printing of the 1840 Nauvoo edition. Two editions were printed in 1874, this and one in Lamoni, Iowa. The Plano edition is considered the first and more scarce edition. Sabin states that this edition in fact is not a re-print of the third American edition, as stated on title page, rather it follows the Liverpool stereotyped edition of 1852. Our copy, according to the inscription in front and back (plus C.A. Parkin, Grocer stamped on first page) was owned by Charles A. Parkin (1847-1924), who served as branch president of the San Francisco RLDS up to the 1906 earthquake. "It seems as if S.F. branch is broken up, so many have gone away. Everything we had was burned.more than two thirds of S.F. branch lost their homes and the rest lost businesses". This copy was an earthquake survivor. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Les Pléiades

      Stockholm: Jos. Müller & Cie, 1874. First edition. Three quarter calf over marbled boards, five raised bands ruled in gilt, morocco lettering piece, five compartments with gilt flowers and decorations, all edges marbled, marbled endpapers. A very good copy, spine and boards rubbed, owner's bookplate on front pastedown, scattered foxing, heavier to blanks and first and last few leaves. 12mo. The most important novel by Gobineau (1816-1882) whose later work is often overshadowed by his "Essau sur l'inegalitie des races humaines," written twenty years earlier. "Shows a debt to Stendhal (whom Gobineau, like Balzac, appreciated when few other critics did)" Harvey & Haseltine, p. 313. With the rise fascism and racial theories, and a look towards a mythological past, a Gobineau revival occurred in France between the two world wars. Cocteau wrote "Ce roman sublime enseigne que le destin travaille dans une zone où nos signes d'intelligence cessent de signifier;" but Roman Rolland added the caution that in Count de Gobineau we see the "same avowed scorn for progress, for liberalism, for that 'humanitarian opium,' for democratic ideals -the same tragic and haughty vision of the struggle of the races- the same voluntary selection of absolute power in the State and Church, here below and in heaven above." (For a complete discussion see "Nineteenth-Century French Fiction Writers: Naturalism and Beyond, 1860-1900. Ed. Catharine Savage Brosman in Dictionary of Literary Biography Vol. 123). "Trés recherché," Clouzot, "Guide du bibliophile français : bibliographie pratique des ?"uvres littéraires françaises du XIXe siècle. Carteret I, p. 346. Clouzot (Nouv.ed.) p. 134.
