      Paris: Damascène Morgand, 1884. FIRST EDITION. No. 400 OF 400 COPIES n. Hardcover. 260 x 171 mm (10 1/4 x 6 3/4"). Five volumes. Compiled by Émile Picot. FIRST EDITION. No. 400 OF 400 COPIES. Pleasing red three-quarter morocco, raised bands, gilt titling, top edges gilt, other edges untrimmed. With frontispiece portrait, numerous illustrations in the text, and 52 plates, 14 of these folding, eight plates in color highlighted with gold. Front free endpaper with the tiny "EK" ink stamp of Ernst Kyriss. Breslauer & Folter 135 ("one of the principal bibliographical reference works, especially for French fifteenth- and sixteenth-century books"). Extremities just slightly rubbed, isolated mild offsetting from in-text illustrations, but a fine copy, clean, fresh, and bright inside and out. With more than 3,000 erudite entries and many illustrations, this is the excellent Kyriss copy of a key bibliographical reference work, describing Baron James de Rothschild's unrivalled collection of French books from the first four centuries of printing. Our exemplary bibliography is the product of many years of work done by philologist and cataloguer extraordinaire Émile Picot (1844-1918), who had co-founded the Société des Anciens Textes Français with Rothschild in 1874. Rothschild (1844-81) began collecting books when he was just 12, and his enthusiasm only increased as he grew older. He inherited the library of his grandfather James, rich in early printing and containing many works purchased at the sale of bibliophile and bibliographer Antoine Auguste Renouard. The younger James was particularly enamored of bindings, both early and modern. He had many of his volumes bound by Trautz-Bazonnet and helped to make that atelier's reputation. He was also rigorous about condition, and would allow only the most perfect specimens obtainable to enter his library. His almost unlimited means permitted him to be extremely discriminating and to assemble in his brief life one of the great collections of Europe. Our set belonged to another great collector and bibliographer, Ernst Kyriss (1881-1974), an eminent scholar of bookbinding history whose four-volume work on early German book stamps is a classic in the field. He was also a collector of books in special bindings from all periods, and he had a particular fondness for fine press books printed on vellum.

        Co-relations and their measurement, chiefly from anthropometric data" in Proceedings of the Royal Society of London 45, 1888, pp. 135-145

      FIRST EDITION OF FRANCIS GALTON'S DEVELOPMENT AND DEMONSTRATION OF WHAT WOULD BECOME KNOWN AS THE CORRELATION COEFFICIENT. After examining correlations in forearm and height measurements and noticing "a common thread in three different scientific problems he was studying", Galton "demonstrated its application in the study of heredity, anthropology, and psychology" (Project Euclid; Wikipedia). Galton was a cousin of Charles Darwin's, and in 1884 he founded the Anthropometric Laboratory, there gathering data through the physical measurement of hundreds of people. "Galton however, was not merely interested in physical characteristics, as he claimed that intelligence is inherited. To demonstrate this, he needed a method to show the intelligence of one generation was "co-related" to that of the previous generation, so that he might argue for the causal relationship: children acquired intelligence from their parents. Fortunately, Galton understood that the scientific value of such a method required it be developed apart from the study of human mental characteristics, which were difficult to quantify in numerical measurements. He developed the ideas of correlation and regression in the study of sweet peas and human physical characteristics. Three papers presented these new concepts and their first methods of calculation: "Regression towards mediocrity in hereditary stature" (1885), "Family likeness in stature" (1886), and "Co-relations and their measurement, chiefly from anthropometric data." [this paper]… In this work, Galton defines correlation: 'Two variable organs are said to be co-related when the variation of the one is accompanied on the average by more or less variation of the other, and in the same direction.... It is easy to see that co-relation must be the consequence of the variations of the two organs being partly due to common causes... If they were in no respect due to common causes, the co-relation would be nil' (Galton, "Co-relations", 135). Galton's definition reveals the properties of the correlation coefficient. It is a measure of strength of a linear relationship; the closer it is to 1, the closer two variables can be predicted from one another by a linear equation. It is a measure of direction: a positive correlation indicates X, Y increase together; a negative correlation indicates one decreases as the other increases. Note that Galton does not claim that co-relation implies cause-effect (it would be absurd for one to assume the size of one organ determined the size of another) (Brutlag, The Development of Correlation and Association in Statistics, 2007). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: The Royal Society. Complete volume. 8vo. 8.5 by 5.5 inches (213 x 138mm). [4], x, [614], xi, [7]. Ex-libris with two stamps on the title page, a few within, and no exterior markings whatsoever. Ten plates and In-text tables and illustrations throughout.

      1884. GRANDVILLE, J.J. Les Fleurs Animées. Introduction by Alphonse Karr. Text by Taxile Delord. Two volumes. I: 260 pp., illustrated with an engraved frontispiece and 28 plates all coloured by hand. II: [4], 102, iv, [105]-236 (i.e., 136 pp.), illustrated with an engraved frontispiece and 22 plates coloured by hand, plus 2 botanical plates. 4to., 264 x 178 mm, bound in original publisher's bindings, richly gilt, a.e.g. Paris: Gabriel de Gonet, n.d. [1847?]. |~||~||~||~||~| Exceptionally Fine Copy, in the original publisher's cartonnage bindings, a true classic of floral surrealism. This copy, with superb hand colouring to the engravings, belongs to a hitherto undescribed edition, with a separate pagination for the two parts. Of all his works Les Fleurs Animées was Grandville's own personal favorite. In the fifty hand-coloured plates Grandville portrays a flower or plant metamorphosized into a lady clad in the petals or leaves particular to that flower or plant. Further, his flower turned human exhibits the human personality traits which Grandville perceives as characteristic of the species he is illustrating. Les Fleurs Animées is "a little world created [and] governed by its own laws, which was full of significance for Grandville " (Ray). This copy is preserved in spectacular condition, the bindings glowingly bright. Renonciat, Grandville p. 287. Carteret III, 286. Ray 198. Plesch 241. Sello, Grandville: Das Gesamte Werk II, 1500-1508.

        Historia y Descripción de la Posesión titulada Palacio de Buena - Vista ó del Ministerio de la Guerra en Madrid

      Madrid, Imprenta del «Memorial de Ingenieros», 1884. Folio; VII-110 pp., más 14 láminas plegadas con planos. Encuadernación moderna en media tela. Excelente estudio histórico y monumental de uno de los espacios urbanos mas interesantes y menos conocidos de Madrid. En 1769 los Duques de Alba comenzaron a construir un Palacio sobre el dominante solar que ocuparon las antiguas casas llamadas de Buenavista, de donde tomó el nombre, entre la Calle de Alcalá y el Paseo de Recoletos. Se sabe que en 1782 dirigía las obras de este gran Palacio, rodeado de extensos jardines, el arquitecto Juan Pedro Arnal y que los Duques murieron antes de poder habitarlo, ya que las obras sufrieron repetidos retrasos y dos incendios antes de su finalización. Una parte del Palacio fue habitado posteriormente por Maria Teresa Cayetana de Silva Álvarez de Toledo, Duquesa de Alba, la nieta de los anteriores, la amiga inmortalizada por Goya, que murió allí en 1802, presumiblemente envenenada. El Palacio, como parte de sus bienes libres y no vinculados al Mayorazgo de la Casa, fue heredado por los médicos de la Duquesa quienes lo vendieron al Ayuntamiento de Madrid con la intención de que éste pudiera finalmente regalárselo a Manuel Godoy. Tampoco Godoy pudo habitar el Palacio ya que al poco tiempo del regalo, en 1808, se produjo el Motín de Aranjuez, su caída y el expolio de todos sus bienes. El Palacio sería adquirido definitivamente por el Estado en 1816. En él tuvieron su residencia, primero el Duque de la Victoria, Baldomero Espartero, como Regente entre 1840 y 1843, y después el General Juan Prim, que murió allí el 27 de Diciembre de 1870, tras el atentado de la Calle del Turco. Hubo sucesivas ampliaciones y nuevas construcciones castrenses en el espacio de Buenavista en 1847, 1869, hasta llegar a nuestros dias, todas ellas dentro de su fatal destino de Ministerio de la Guerra y Dependencias Militares para lo que podría haber sido quizás la «Casa Blanca» española.

        Die Grundlagen der Arithmetik. eine logisch mathematische Untersuchung über den Begriff der Zahl.

      Breslau, Wilhelm Koebner, 1884 8vo. Contemporary paper boards. Paper labels over spine. Extremities worn, but tight and fine. A stamp to end-paper and to verso of title-page. Title-page and end-papers with light brownspotting, and some leaves with marginal markings, otherwise very nice and clean. Inscribed to front free end-paper. (10), XI, (1), 119, (1) pp.. The rare first edition with a handwritten presentation-inscription from Frege (Freundschaftlichst/ überreicht vom/ Verfasser.) of this pioneering work of modern logic, which constitutes the starting point of analytic philosophy, of the philosophy of mathematics, and of logicism. This cornerstone of modern logic was pivotal to the development of the two main disciplines: the foundation of mathematics and the foundation of philosophy, and with it, Frege founded the discipline of logicism. The work profoundly influenced Russell and Wittgenstein, who both used Frege's The Foundations of Arithmetic as a steppingstone for their own work (e.g. In the preface of the Principia Mathematica Russell and Whitehead state that In all questions of logical analysis our chief debt is to Frege (p. VIII).).Frege presentation-copies are of the utmost scarcity and hardly ever enter the market. The Foundations of Arithmetic arguably constitutes Frege's main work, as it is here that he expounds the central notions of his philosophy while severely and effectively criticizing his predecessors and contemporaries. It is here that he deals with the actual goal of all his thought, namely TO BUILD MATHEMATICS AS AN EXTENSION OF LOGIC. The book represents the first philosophically sound discussion of the concept of number in Western civilization, and it profoundly influenced developments in the philosophy of mathematics and in general ontology.Beginning thus: When we ask someone what the number one is, or what the symbol I means, we get as a rule the answer Why, a thing. And if we go on to point out that the proposition the number is a thing is not a definition, because it has the definite article on one side and the indefinite on the other, or that it only assigns the number one to the class of things, without stating which thing it is, then we shall very likely be invited to select something for ourselves - anything we please - to call one.... (F.o.A Introduction), Frege goes on to argue that number is something connected with an assertion concerning a concept - and essential for the notion of number is that of equality of a number. The definition that he settled upon, and which became of fundamental importance to the development of modern logic and the foundations of philosophy and mathematics was The number which belongs to the concept F is the extension of the concept of being equal to the concept F.; here, equality of concepts is understood as the existence of a one-to-one correspondence between their extensions. ''Foundations of Arithmetic (1884) provided an impressive definition of number in logical terms, after having criticized several empiricist, formalist and psychologistic approaches to mathematics. The definition was constructed in terms of properties of concepts rather than through classes. Thus, the number of a class was introduced as the number which applies to a given concept, and this last as the extension of the concept equinumerous with the given concept, which can be defined in terms of bijective correspondence between sets. (Grattan-Guinness I: p. 621). The name of Frege has become one of the most honoured in the history of mathematics. The central feature of the book is the development of the definition of number. There can be no doubt about the greatness of this work (W.H. McCrea - review of the English translation).Its epochal character in the attempt to put mathematical concepts on a rigorously logical basis has been realized in this country from the beginning of this century, thanks to the writings of Russell and Whitehead. (The Times Literary Supplement - review of the English translation). The modern philosophy of mathematics is characterized by the fact that various schools have been formed to overcome the difficulties occasioned by the antinomies. The oldest of these schools is LOGICISM and goes back to FREGE, one of the most significant logicians of all times. (Stegmüller, p. 326)

        Ulysses S. Grant signs an ornate membership certificate for the Society of the Army of the Potomac featuring fellow Union Generals McClellan, Hooker, Burnside and Meade

      n.p., [1884 - 1885]. 24" x 19". "Partly-engraved Document Signed, ""U.S. Grant,"" as President of the Society of the Army of the Potomac, 1 page, 24"" x 19"", n.p., [1884-1885], countersigned by Medal of Honor winner Horatio C. King (""Horatio C. King""), as Secretary of the Society, inducting Captain Charles Wesley Forrester of the 57th Pennsylvania Volunteers as a member. Some light toning at blank margins, some minor marginal chipping and tears which do not affect the engraving, else fine condition.Charles Wesley Forrester enlisted as a private in the 84th Pennsylvania in October 1862. The 84th saw heavy action at Winchester, Second Bull Run, Chancellorsville, Petersburg and Deep Bottom. Due to heavy losses, the 84th Pennsylvania was consolidated with the 57th Pennsylvania in January 1865. In the same month, Forrester was commissioned a captain in the 57th, seeing action around Petersburg, Richmond, Sayler's Creek and Appomattox. The Society of the Army of the Potomac was founded in 1869, electing George B. McClellan as its first president. Like the Grand Army of the Potomac, it proved an effective lobby advocating veteran's rights and securing pensions for its members. Grant was elected President of the Society in 1884, but by this time was too ill to personally attend the May 1885 reunion, dying from throat cancer in July 1885. The document, which is finely engraved by The Major Knapp Lithograph Company of New York, features portraits of McClellan, Hooker, Burnside and Meade."

        Annales de Chimie et de Physique. Sixième Série. Tome premier (1884) - Tome trentième (1893). Band 1-30 zuzüglich eines Registerbandes (= 31 Bände, alles erschienene, komplett). Erstausgaben.

      G. Masson, Éditeur, Libraire de l'Académie de Médecine 1884-1893, Paris - Ab Bd.4, 1885 zeichnen folgende, neu hinzugekommene Mitherausgeber: Friedel, Charles; Becquerel, Alexandre Edmond (bis Bd.23, 1891); Mascart, Eleuthère Elie Nicolas. 30 fadengeheftete, goldgeprägte, Maroquin-Halbleder-Handeinbände der Zeit mit verstärkten Ecken, goldgeprägter Rückenbeschriftung, marmoriertem Deckelpapier, marmorierten Vor- und Nachsatzpapieren, dreiseitigem Sprengschnitt und Lesebändchen. Der 28. Band als kaschierter Halbleineneinband ohne marmorierte Deckelpapiere, offenbar wurde das Buch zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt durch einen Buchbinder neu gebunden. Mit Illustrationen im Text sowie einigen Tafeln und Falttafeln, diese vereinzelt gestochen bzw. als Lichtdruck. Die Einbände in unterschiedlicher Ausprägung berieben, wenige Rücken mit deutlichem Abrieb bzw. kleinem Durchrieb, Kopfschnitte alle altersgemäß mit deutlicher Nachdunkelung, nahezu alle Bände mit Bibliotheksstempel auf Vortitel- oder Titelblättern, das Papier altersgemäß allg. nachgedunkelt, einige Seiten mit Knick oder kleinem Einriss oder Fleck, diverse Bände mit teils klaffender Bindung am Vorsatzpapier bzw. Inhaltsverzeichnis am Buchende. Die Bücher der 6. Folge wurden offenbar nicht mehr ganz so hochwertig gebunden oder befanden sich häufiger im Gebrauch als die der Vorgänger-Reihen, so wurden auch bei Bd.14 zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt die Buchdeckel (fachgerecht) erneuert, dieses Buch nun mit schlichten Deckeln ohne marmorierte Deckelpapiere und Vorsätze sowie mit gestempeltem Fußschnitt. Das Lesebändchen des 15. Bandes lose im Buch, sehr selten einzelne Bleistiftunterstreichungen, vereinzelt auch Stempel auf Nachsatzpapier. Insgesamt befinden sich die Bücher der sechsten Serie des von Lavoisier mitbegründeten und bis 1815 unter dem Titel "Annales de Chimie" erschienenen bekannten französichen Fachorgans der Chemie in altersgemäß gutem Erhaltungszustand. In dieser Vollständigkeit äusserst selten. Die Annales de Chimie et de Physique ist eine naturwissenschaftliche Zeitschrift, die in Paris im Jahre 1789 unter ihrem ursprünlichen dem Titel Annales de Chimie gegründet wurde. Einer der frühen Editoren war der französische Chemiker Antoine Laurent de Lavoisier (1743–1794). (wikipedia) In französischer Sprache. 17565 pages. 8° [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Journals of Australian Explorations.

      Brisbane: James C. Beal, Government Printer, 1884. Brisbane: James C. Beal, Government Printer, 1884. Octavo, a very good copy in the original blind-stamped and gilt lettered green cloth,a few inked marginalia, endpapers slightly spotted. A handsome copy of the complete edition of the journals of eight expeditions undertaken by the Gregory brothers in Western, Northern and Central Australia between 1846 and 1861. This was the first comprehensive publication of the Gregory journals, many of which had not been printed before in their entirety.The Gregory brothers played an important role in the history of exploration in Western Australia, and Augustus also led expeditions further afield into unmapped regions of the continent. In 1855, on Governor FitzRoy's recommendation, Augustus Gregory was selected by the British Government to lead the North Australian Exploring Expedition. The party of eighteen included his brother Henry as second-in-command, the botanist Ferdinand von Mueller, and the naturalist and artist Thomas Baines. Starting from the mouth of the Victoria River in August 1855, Gregory covered over five thousand miles in his sixteen-month expedition opening up vast areas for pastoral settlement. He was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society on his return and is one of the greatest inland Australian explorers. In 1858 Gregory made one further expedition in search of Ludwig Leichhardt and his party, but was forced by drought to abandon the search. This book includes material related to the search. Australian Rare Books, 190a; Ferguson, 10075.
