        THE BOKE NAMED THE GOUERNOUR DEUISED BY SIR THOMAS ELYOT, KNIGHT

      London: C. Kegan Paul, 1880. Very fine, and very handsome. Edited from the First Edition of 1531 by Henry Herbert Stephen Croft Two volumes. cxcviii, 352p; x, 660p. Illustrated with frontispieces of Sir Thomas and Lady Elyot. Bound by Frost in half brown crushed morocco with cloth sides and marbled endpapers, t.e.g., the spines with gilt titles and panel ornaments This wotk is known chiefly as the first work on education in English. While it aimed at the education of princes, it was used by the upper classes as a model.& "The twofold object of this work was 'to instruct men in such virtues as shall be expedient for them, which shall have authority in a weal public, and to educate those youths that hereafter may be deemed worthy to be governors." (DNB Vol. IV, p. 765).& '"Elyot received little reward for his services to the state, but his scholarship and his books were held in high esteem by his contemporaries. The Boke named the Governour was printed by Thomas Berthelet (1531, 1534, 1536, 1544, etc.). It is a treatise on moral philosophy, intended to direct the education of those destined to fill high positions, and to inculcate those moral principles which alone could fit them for the performance of their duties. The subject was a favourite one in the 16th century, and the book, which contained many citations from classical authors, was very popular. Elyot expressly acknowledges his obligations to Erasmus's Institutio Principis Christiani but he makes no reference to the De regno et regis institutione of Francesco Patrizzi (d. 1494), bishop of Gaeta, on which his work was undoubtedly modelled [sic]."

        Om Anvendelse af mindste Kvadraters Methode i nogle Tilfælde, hvor en Komplikation af visse Slags uensartede tilfælde Fejlkilder giver Fejlene en "systematisk" Karakter

      Copenhagen: Bianco Luno, 1880. First edition. The first mathematical formulation of Brownian motion. The mathematical model which describes the random movement of particles suspended in a liquid that Robert Brown observed in 1827, plays a fundamental role in modern statistics and economics. In this paper [On the application of the method of least squares to some cases, in which a combination of certain types of inhomogeneous random sources of errors gives these a ‘systematic’ character], concerned with determining the distance between Copenhagen and Lund (Sweden) from astronomical observations, Thiele gave the first mathematical formulation of Brownian motion (or the Wiener process) in order to account for the fluctuations of the position of the instrument. The stochastic model which Thiele developed was far beyond his time, and none of his contemporaries could grasp its contents or understand its importance. Thiele, however, seems himself to have had expectations for its recognition, since he had a French translation published later the same year. Independently of Thiele, Louis Bachelier utilized Brownian motion in his dissertation from 1900 on the theory of speculation to evaluate stock options. And Einstein used the process in 1905 to confirm the existence of molecules. See Steffen Lauritzen's 'Thiele: Pioneer in Statistics', were an annotated English translation of this paper is published as the first chapter. Large 4to: 267 x 214 mm. Original printed wrappers, with minor chipping to extremeties, in all a fine and completely unopened copy. Published as pp. 381-408 in 'Mémoires de l'Académie Royale de Copenhague 5me série', vol.

        O soprotivlenij schidkostey i o vuzduchoplavani. [On the Resistance of Liquids and Air flying/ About Liquids Resistance and Aeronautics].

      S.-Peterburg, 1880. 8vo. Contemporary half calf. Capitals and corners with wear. Some crayon-underlinings and some brownspotting. (2),160; 80 pp + 12 folded plates.. Scarce first edition of this fundamental guide of aeronautics, which constitutes one of the most important works in aviation history. The work formed the basis for Russian aeronautics, influencing the likes of Tsiolkovsky. The great Russian chemist D.I. Mendeleev suspected that, in the highest levels of the Earth atmosphere, the Ether might exist at natural vacuum. It is this thought that sparks his growing interest in meteorology and aeronautics, which begins to take form in the 1870'ies. For Mendeleev aerodynamics and aeromechanics was inseparably linked to hydrodynamics and hydromechanics, and also to the theory of shipbuilding. He viewed these as belonging to one general problem, which he called media resistance and which he summarized and described in detail in his important work "On the Resistance of Liquids and Air flying"/" About Liquids Resistance and Aeronautics", 1880 [i.e. the present work]. A great part of the work is dedicated to the questions of hydrodynamic theory and contains important analyses of the development of liquids resistance theory from Newton till Froud. Pinpointing the weakest points of the hitherto most important theories, he concluded that even the most important scientists were not able to understand the not examined resistance and thus that theoretical studies alone will not be able to resolve the issue, but require conjoint regular tests of models in hydrodynamic laboratories. Thus, Mendeleev initiated a new school, namely that of experimental hydrodynamics of ships, and the present work became one of the fundamental guides for work in shipbuilding, aeronautics, airplane construction, and ballistics. It greatly influenced the likes of Tsiolkovsky and Zhukovsky and thus formed the basis of Russian aeronautics. It is in the present work that Mendeleev first describes his famous aerostat, the first attempt by Russian. His aerostat was supposed to be able to reach the stratosphere, but the project was never realized. His interest in aerostatics, however, as presented in the present work, led to his famous baloon ride in 1887, to watch the full solar eclipse."The earliest attempts to establish the theoretical possibility of air flight were made by Leonardo da Vinci, whose observations of bird flight inspired him to conceive the ideas of flying on heavier-than-air machines, of the helicopter, and of the parachute. But credit for the further development of his theoretical ideas and their realization belongs to the Russians... A large contribution to the development of aviation was made by D.I. Mendeleev, who conceived of a stratospheric balloon and devised plans for its construction in 1875. The first foreigner to construct a stratospheric balloon was Picard in 1931. In 1887, Mendeleev ascended 3,350 meters in the balloon to observe a solar eclipse. Mendeleev defined the future significance of aviation with great foresight. His "On the Resistance of Liquids and Aeronautics" (1880) served as one of the fundamental guides for work in shipbuilding, aeronautics, airplane construction, and ballistics."
