        Notiz über die Spectrallinien des Wasserstoffs. WITH: Zweite Notiz über die Spectrallinien des Wasserstoffs

      1st Edition Basel: H. George's Verlag, 1885. FIRST PRINTING IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Balmer's two papers providing the formula for describing the spectral lines of hydrogen; of profound influence for Niels Bohr and the beginnings of quantum theory. "Although trained as a mathematician and working as a mathematics teacher, Balmer became interested in spectroscopy, which was very much at the cutting edge of scientific research at the time, and was encouraged by colleagues at Basle University to try to find an explanation for the way lines in a spectrum are distributed--at first sight, in a random pattern. Although many other scientists had tried and failed to find some order in these patters, in 1884, in his sixtieth year, Balmer succeeded in finding an equation that not only reproduced the relationship between the four bright lines known in the spectrum of hydrogen at the time, but also predicted the existence of a fifth line, at the edge of visibility, that was soon detected. The formula was published in 1885, the year Niels Bohr was born."The five lines became known as the Balmer series... Although Balmer's results were entirely empirical, based on the mathematical relationships alone with no attempt to find their underlying physical cause, this discovery that there was a mathematical order in the pattern of spectral lines was an important step towards developing an understanding of the spectrum in quantum terms" (Gribbin, Q is for Quantum). ??"Shortly after 7 February [1913] Bohr heard of the Balmer formula. By 6 March he had completed a paper containing its interpretation. That event marks the beginning of the quantum theory of atomic structure" (Pais, Niels Bohr's Times).IN: Verhandlungen der Naturforschenden Gesellschaft in Basel, vol. 7, pp. 548-560; 750-752. Basel: H. George's Verlag, 1885. Octavo, original yellow printed wrappers, uncut and largely unopened; custom box. Stamp on front wrapper. Wrappers chipped around edges, front wrapper neatly re-attached and gatherings archivally stabilized at spine. SCARCE, particularly in original wrappers. Good.

"These extracts from Du Pont's journal and letters, privately printed for his family by his wife after his death, are a valuable and almost unknown account of U.S. Naval operations in the Pacific and Gulf of California during the Mexican War.  After conveying Fremont and his battalion from Monterey to San Diego and participating in the taking of San Blas, DuPont entered the Gulf of California, seized La Paz, and at Guaymas burned the Mexican fleet. Within a few months he had cleared the Gulf, and in 1847 aided Commodore Shubrick in the occupation of Mazatlan, and later led his troops to the rescue of the American forces at Mission San Jose" - Streeter.  "The richest mass of first-hand source material extant on the conquest of California" - Eberstadt.  "Even more important than Du Pont's detailed and meticulous account of his own actions is his careful recording of the movements of, and communications with, other important figures with whom he was in almost constant contact" - Hill.  Only fifty copies were printed for the family.

        A Walk in Sydney Streets on the Shady Side. 20 Sketches...

      Sydney: The Author, 1885. Folio, lithographic dedication, title and envoi, and 20 lithographs;original publisher's half morocco. One of the rarer nineteenth-century illustrated Australian books in a handsome Sydney binding by W.E. Smith. A journalist, Whitelocke was born in London in 1861. It is not clear when he arrived in Australia but he entered journalism in the 1880s and was editor of the Barrier Miner and the National Advocate; he also wrote for the Sydney Mail and other papers. His social sympathies and his often satirically observant eye are obvious from this series of Mayhewesque images of Sydney city life.As Whitelocke himself comments in the advertisement to the work, the idea was prompted by a Sydney Morning Herald review of his 24 original sketches from the works of Charles Dickens (1882): the editors applauded the sketches, but openly wondered why the artist did not stay closer to home, as 'Sydney streets afford more subjects for a book of sketches than any work of Dickens'. Whitelocke acknowledged the value of such a project, and the resulting lithographs show that he was evidently drawn to the everyday bustle of the city, producing a fascinating series of social documents. His concern is with everyday life, whether it is an image of a Chinese vegetable seller, news-boys, orators in the park or street musicians (playing a harp, no less). There is a moralising tone to much of the letterpress, which belies the evident empathy and compassion of the images. Some scattered spotting, expertly rebacked, edges bumped but a good copy.

Giuseppe, 1885. 12 volumi in-4° (345x255mm), pp. XIV, 216; 219; 220; 245; 213; 200; 227; 221; 236; 214; 198; 287; brossura editoriale con titolo entro bordura ornamentale. 288 incisioni xilografiche n.t. e f.t., incise da Canedi, raffiguranti vedute, tribù locali, costumi, villaggi, utensili. Due carte geografiche a colori in fine del IV volume disegnate e incise sotto la direzione di Antoine d'Abbadie a Parigi nel 1886. Frontespizi con titolo entro ricchissima bordura ornata e figurata su legno. Capilettera, testatine e finalini incisi. Testo inquadrato da doppia filettatura. Ritratto di Leone XIII all'antiporta del I vol. e un ritratto del Massaja medesimo f.t. al I vol. Dedicatoria a Leone XIII. Abrasioni marginali di poco conto alle ultime pp. del decimo vol. Perfetto esemplare in barbe, in parte intonso e serbato entro velina. Prima edizione, completa divenuta rara e ricercata già all'inizio del secolo XX, impressa simultaneamente a Roma e a Milano, della celeberrima relazione del Massaja sulle sue più che trentennali missioni evangelizzatrici africane, il più ampio testo ottocentesco sull'Etiopia e l'Abissinia, eccezionale miniera di informazioni etnografiche e topografiche sull'Africa Orientale. Il Massaja nacque, con il nome di Lorenzo Antonio, nel 1809 nella frazione La Braja di Piovà d'Asti, ora Piovà Massaja. Seminarista ad Asti, indossò il saio di frate cappuccino alla Madonna di Campagna di Torino, cambiando il nome di battesimo in quello del fratello Guglielmo, sacerdote. Fu ordinato sacerdote a Vercelli nel 1832 ed ebbe la direzione spirituale dell'Ospedale Mauriziano di Torino (1834-36) che gli consentì di apprendere preziose nozioni elementari di medicina e chirurgia. Nel 1846 Gregorio XVI istituí il Vicariato Apostolico dei Galla e chiamò a reggerlo come vescovo titolare di Cassia proprio il Massaja, che venne consacrato in S. Carlo al Corso in Roma il 24 maggio dello stesso anno. Lasciò l'Italia il 4 giugno 1846 e, in Abissinia, compose un catechismo e pubblicò la prima grammatica della lingua galla. Fondò fra l'altro le importanti missioni di Fekerié-Ghemb e Finfinni, poi elevata a capitale di tutta l'Etiopia con il nome di Addis-Abeba nel 1889. In Abissinia istitui' la profilassi contro malattie endemiche, particolarmente contro il vaiolo, per cui fu acclamato "Padre del Fantatà", nome autoctono per designare l'affezione vaiolosa, lotto' per l'abolizione della schiavitú, creò dei centri di accoglienza per venire incontro alle popolazioni tormentate dalle continue guerre, tento' azioni mediatrici fra popolazioni rivali e si fece promotore di missioni diplomatiche e scientifiche fino ad essere nominato dal governo italiano dell'epoca Ministro Plenipotenziario nel trattato d'amicizia e commercio stipulato tra l'Italia e lo Stato dello Scioa nel 1879. Fu nominato arcivescovo di Stauropoli nel 1881 e cardinale il 10 novembre 1884. Si spense a San Giorgio a Cremano. in provincia di Napoli, il 6 agosto 1889. Su invito dello stesso pontefice Leone XIII stese l'importantissima relazione contenuta nei presenti volumi, testimonianza altamente significativa non solo dei progressi missionari in terra abissina (a tal proposito, è fuor di dubbio che l'opera è il più cospicuo testo della missiologia italiana ottocentesca), ma, altresì, della situazione antropologica, politica ed economica di quelle terre nel corso del secolo decimonono. "Tra il 1880 e il 1886, pur consapevole degli scarsi strumenti letterari di cui poteva disporre, abituato per oltre un trentennio a esprimersi in forme idiomatiche filologicamente estranee ai modelli occidentali, senza il supporto di documentazione scritta, il Massaja compose un'opera complessa, sotto molti aspetti frammentaria e di difficile lettura, ma capace di tratteggiare un affresco esemplare della vita culturale, religiosa, politica e sociale dell'Etiopia ottocentesca; un'opera che avrebbe conosciuto una straordinaria fortuna in Italia e in Europa" (Mauro Forno in D.B.I., LXXI, 2008). Hill, 234. Henze, III, 389. Petermanns Mitteilungen, 1888, S.189 ff. CLIO, IV, p. 2906. Ezio Orefice in Dizionario Bompiani delle Opere, IV, 719: "Questo suo libro rimane a testimoniare un'impresa in cui non si sa se più ammirare il missionario e l'esploratore". Manca al Gay (che registra solo, n. 2701, le "Lectiones Grammaticales pro missionariis"). Italiano

        Der Glaube im Neuen Testament. Eine Untersuchung zur neutestamentlichen Theologie. [HANDEXEMPLAR SCHLATTERS mit handschriftlichen, Manuskript - Anmerkungen]. Eine von der Haager Gesellschaft zur Vertheidigung der christlichen Religion gekrönte Preisschrift.

      E.J.Brill,, 1885. Erste Ausgabe. Leiden, E.J.Brill, 1885. Gross-Oktav. Durchschossenes Exemplar welches speziell für Schlatter in zwei Bände aufgeteilt wurde. Durchgehende Paginierung. Band I: V, 304 Seiten / Band II: Seiten 305 - 591. Privates Halbleder der Zeit. Rücken teilweise angebrochen. Exlibis Schlatters in beiden Bänden ("Er trägt alles durch das Wort seiner Kraft" - Dr.Adolf Schlatter). Das Werk voller umfangreicher Annotation in Schlatter's Hand. Einige wenige Annotationen in Stenographie. Anlässlich eines Preisausschreibens legte Schlatter 1885 ein ca. 600 Seiten starkes Werk mit dem Titel ?Der Glaube im Neuen Testament? vor, das bis in unsere Gegenwart in der theologischen Fachwelt hohes Ansehen genießt. Mit dieser Studie gelang ihm der wissenschaftliche Durchbruch, der 1888 zu seiner Ernennung zum außerordentlichen Professor durch die Universität Bern führte ? die mit diesem Schachzug die Abwanderung ihres Kollegen aber nicht mehr verhindern konnte. n1888 folgte Schlatter einem Ruf an die Universität Greifswald auf den Lehrstuhl für Neues Testament. Zum prägenden Element in dieser Zeit wurde seine Freundschaft mit Hermann Cremer und dem dortigen Luthertum, das er als Reformierter zwar schätzen lernte, mit dem er sich später allerdings auch kritisch auseinandersetzte. Beide verstanden sich aufgrund des gemeinsamen Glaubens an Jesus Christus als Schrifttheologen, die sich eine Erneuerung der Theologie von der Vertiefung in die biblischen Schriften (hier besonders in deren Begrifflichkeiten) erhofften.nnMit Cremer gemeinsam kämpfte Schlatter um eine wissenschaftliche Alternative zur damals bestimmenden theologischen Schule Albrecht Ritschls. Hier erhielt er sowohl den wissenschaftlichen Austausch im Kollegenkreis als auch die Hörerzahlen, die er sich immer ersehnt hatte. Seine Aufgabe sah er darin, die Studenten anzuleiten, die ängstliche Traditions- und Lehrerbindung hinter sich zu lassen und selbständige Erkenntnis zu pflegen. Dem folgte auch seine ?Einleitung in die Bibel? für die Laienhand, in der er nach seiner Ansicht berechtigte Beobachtungen der historisch-kritischen Theologie (z. B. zur Pseudepigraphie) aufnahm und sich dem Ansinnen des ?frommen Lügens? zur Sicherung der eigenen Anschauung über die Bibel verweigerte.nnEine dreimonatige Reise nach Palästina 1891 vermehrte nicht nur Schlatters Kenntnisse des Heiligen Landes, sondern hatte eine für damalige Zeiten außerordentlich positive Einstellung zum Judentum sowie eine Warnung an die Kirche vor Antisemitismus sowie das Eingeständnis christlicher Schuld zur Folge.

The volumes are:Jane Eyre; Shirley; Villette; The Professor : with Poems; Wuthering Heights; Wildfell Hall and Life of Charlotte Bronte by Mrs. Gaskell.Charlotte Bronte (1816-1855)Ê and her sisters Emily Bronte (1818-1848) and Anne Bronte (1820-1849) have charmed, inspired, and even shocked readers from the Victorian age to the present.Ê Raised in Haworth, Yorkshire, the three sisters produced such classics as Jane Eyre, Wuthering Heights, and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall.Ê Influenced by British Romantic poets like Wordsworth, Scott, and Byron, the Brontes produced a cast of unforgettable characters such as the devoted governess, Jane Eyre, and the lovers, Heathcliff, Cathy, and Hareton.Ê The Bronte Family website explores the lives, literature, and art of these important Victorian women writers.The Bront‘s are the world's most famous literary family and Haworth Parsonage, now the Bront‘ Parsonage Museum, was their home from 1820 to 1861.ÊCharlotte, Emily and Anne Bront‘ were the authors of some of the best-loved books in the English language. Charlotte's novel 'Jane Eyre' (1847), Emily's 'Wuthering Heights' (1847), and Anne's 'The Tenant of Wildfell Hall' (1848) were written in this house over a hundred and fifty years ago, yet their power still moves readers today.To find two writers of genius in one family would be rare, but to find several writers in one household is unique in the history of literature. Charlotte and Emily are ranked among the world's greatest novelists; Anne is a powerful underrated author, and both their father, the Revd. Patrick Bront‘, and brother Branwell also saw their own works in print.The Bront‘s, published under the pseudonyms of Currer, Ellis and Acton Bell, were acknowledged at the time for their directness and powerful emotional energy, qualities which were sometimes interpreted by the critics as 'coarse' and 'brutal'. - Bronte Society.

        Archives de Neurologie revue mensuelle des maladies nerveuses et mentales fondée par Jean-Martin Charcot publiée sous la direction de Alix Joffroy & Valentin Magnan & Fulgence Raymond volume VIII 1885 tomes I & II - - - - Avec la célèbre étude Gilles de la Tourette : Étude sur une affection nerveuse caractérisée par de l'incoordination motrice accompagnée d'écholalie et de coprolalie (Jumping, Latah, Myriachit)

      1885 - 2 grand et fort in-8° relié pleine toile bleutée moderne, 427 et 412 pages. Très nombreuses planches hors-texte. Signalons que notre exemplaire comporte, conservés par le relieur, tous les plats de couverture des livraisons, ce qui est très rare. Une première description est effectuée en 1825 par Jean Itard, médecin français, qui aurait décrit les symptômes de la marquise de Dampierre, femme importante de la noblesse à l'époque. Les travaux récents du Dr. Walusinski jettent un voile suspicieux sur la véracité de cette origine. Jean-Martin Charcot, confie à Georges Gilles de La Tourette, l'étude de patients de l'hôpital de la Salpêtrière, dans le but de définir une maladie distincte de l'hystérie et de la chorée (mouvements d'origine cérébrale qui sont irrépressibles et en dehors de toute volonté). En 1885, Gilles de la Tourette publie en plusieurs livraisons ce rapport sur neuf patients, « Étude sur une affection nerveuse . », pages 19-42, 158-200, et conclut au besoin de définir une nouvelle catégorie clinique. Le nom choisi par Charcot est finalement celui de « maladie de Gilles de La Tourette », en hommage à son découvreur. Pendant un siècle, rien ne vient expliquer ou traiter les tics caractéristiques du syndrome, et une approche psychiatrique est privilégiée jusque dans le courant du vingtième siècle. La possibilité que les troubles du mouvement, dont le syndrome de Gilles de La Tourette, puissent être d'origine organique, n'est envisagée qu'à partir de 1920 par C. von Economo, puis en France René Cruchet, quand une épidémie d'encéphalites entre 1918 et 1926 entraîne ensuite une épidémie de troubles des mouvements et de tics.

        I miei trentacinque anni di missione nell'Alta Etiopia. Memorie storiche

      Tipografia Poliglotta - Tip. Pontif. S. Giuseppe 1885 - 1893, Roma - Milano - 12 volumi in-4° (345x255mm), pp. XIV, 216; 219; 220; 245; 213; 200; 227; 221; 236; 214; 198; 287; brossura editoriale con titolo entro bordura ornamentale. 288 incisioni xilografiche n.t. e f.t., incise da Canedi, raffiguranti vedute, tribù locali, costumi, villaggi, utensili. Due carte geografiche a colori in fine del IV volume disegnate e incise sotto la direzione di Antoine d'Abbadie a Parigi nel 1886. Frontespizi con titolo entro ricchissima bordura ornata e figurata su legno. Capilettera, testatine e finalini incisi. Testo inquadrato da doppia filettatura. Ritratto di Leone XIII all'antiporta del I vol. e un ritratto del Massaja medesimo f.t. al I vol. Dedicatoria a Leone XIII. Abrasioni marginali di poco conto alle ultime pp. del decimo vol. Perfetto esemplare in barbe, in parte intonso e serbato entro velina. Prima edizione, completa divenuta rara e ricercata già all'inizio del secolo XX, impressa simultaneamente a Roma e a Milano, della celeberrima relazione del Massaja sulle sue più che trentennali missioni evangelizzatrici africane, il più ampio testo ottocentesco sull'Etiopia e l'Abissinia, eccezionale miniera di informazioni etnografiche e topografiche sull'Africa Orientale. Il Massaja nacque, con il nome di Lorenzo Antonio, nel 1809 nella frazione La Braja di Piovà d'Asti, ora Piovà Massaja. Seminarista ad Asti, indossò il saio di frate cappuccino alla Madonna di Campagna di Torino, cambiando il nome di battesimo in quello del fratello Guglielmo, sacerdote. Fu ordinato sacerdote a Vercelli nel 1832 ed ebbe la direzione spirituale dell'Ospedale Mauriziano di Torino (1834-36) che gli consentì di apprendere preziose nozioni elementari di medicina e chirurgia. Nel 1846 Gregorio XVI istituí il Vicariato Apostolico dei Galla e chiamò a reggerlo come vescovo titolare di Cassia proprio il Massaja, che venne consacrato in S. Carlo al Corso in Roma il 24 maggio dello stesso anno. Lasciò l'Italia il 4 giugno 1846 e, in Abissinia, compose un catechismo e pubblicò la prima grammatica della lingua galla. Fondò fra l'altro le importanti missioni di Fekerié-Ghemb e Finfinni, poi elevata a capitale di tutta l'Etiopia con il nome di Addis-Abeba nel 1889. In Abissinia istitui' la profilassi contro malattie endemiche, particolarmente contro il vaiolo, per cui fu acclamato Padre del Fantatà, nome autoctono per designare l'affezione vaiolosa, lotto' per l'abolizione della schiavitú, creò dei centri di accoglienza per venire incontro alle popolazioni tormentate dalle continue guerre, tento' azioni mediatrici fra popolazioni rivali e si fece promotore di missioni diplomatiche e scientifiche fino ad essere nominato dal governo italiano dell'epoca Ministro Plenipotenziario nel trattato d'amicizia e commercio stipulato tra l'Italia e lo Stato dello Scioa nel 1879. Fu nominato arcivescovo di Stauropoli nel 1881 e cardinale il 10 novembre 1884. Si spense a San Giorgio a Cremano. in provincia di Napoli, il 6 agosto 1889. Su invito dello stesso pontefice Leone XIII stese l'importantissima relazione contenuta nei presenti volumi, testimonianza altamente significativa non solo dei progressi missionari in terra abissina (a tal proposito, è fuor di dubbio che l'opera è il più cospicuo testo della missiologia italiana ottocentesca), ma, altresì, della situazione antropologica, politica ed economica di quelle terre nel corso del secolo decimonono. Tra il 1880 e il 1886, pur consapevole degli scarsi strumenti letterari di cui poteva disporre, abituato per oltre un trentennio a esprimersi in forme idiomatiche filologicamente estranee ai modelli occidentali, senza il supporto di documentazione scritta, il Massaja compose un’opera complessa, sotto molti aspetti frammentaria e di difficile lettura, ma capace di tratteggiare un affresco esemplare della vita culturale, religiosa, politica e sociale dell’Etiopia ottocentesca; un’opera che avrebbe conosciuto una straordinaria fortuna in Italia e in Europa (Mauro Forno in D.B.I., LXXI, 2008).

        Alastor; or, the Spirit of Solitude: and Other Poems. A facsimile reprint of the original edition, first published in 1816.

      London: Reeves and Turner, and B. Dobell, 1885 - Octavo. Original tan buckram, paper title label to spine. Very slight rubbing to ends and corners, front hinge just starting at the ends, internally fresh and uncut, withal an excellent copy. First edition thus, signed by Bertram Dobell on the front free endpaper (conceivably denoting this as his retained copy), one of the scarce 50 copies on Whatman's Hand-made Paper from a limited edition restricted to 404 copies (4 were on vellum, and 350 copies were on toned paper). This facsimile was issued as number 3 in the second series of the publications of The Shelley Society, at the initiative of literary scholar and bookseller Bertram Dobell (1842-1914). Alastor was Shelley's first mature work, which drew from Leigh Hunt, then a stranger to him, the first public recognition of Shelley's gifts as "a very striking and original thinker". Partly inspired by a boat trip up the Thames taken by Shelley, Mary, Peacock and Charles Clairmont, and partly by Shelley's complex reaction to Wordsworth, the poem, "in its brooding introspection, is a world away from the explicit radicalism of Queen Mab. Alastor is at some level an elegy for Shelley's failed marriage with Harriet" (ODNB). The volume also contains much revised versions of the first two cantos of Queen Mab, under the title 'The Daemon of the World', along with another revised section (entitled 'Superstition') from canto 6. The book was apparently rare as early as 1824: Mary Shelley, in her preface to Posthumous Poems, explained, "I have added a reprint of 'Alastor, or the Spirit of Solitude': the difficulty with which a copy can be obtained is the cause of its republication" - Dobell in his prefatory matter here reasserts this point, and continues: "A copy of the original edition now fetches, on the rare occasions of its appearance in the auction room, from eight to ten pounds. This, of course, is a prohibitive price to all but wealthy collectors; and it seems reasonable to suppose, therefore, that those Shelleyites whose means are limited will not neglect the present opportunity of acquiring what is practically and substantially an original edition, at an almost nominal price."

        On the Algebra of Logic" in American Journal of Mathematics, Vol. III, 1880, pp. 15-58 WITH "On the Algebra of Logic: A Contribution to the Philosophy of Notation in American Journal of Mathematics, Vol. VII, 1885, pp. 180-202

      TWO VOLUME, HANDSOMELY BOUND FIRST EDITIONS OF PEIRCE'S SEMINAL WORK IN THE STUDY OF LOGIC, HIS 1885 LOGIC OF QUANTIFIERS, AS WELL AS AN IMPORTANT PRECURSOR, HIS 1880 PAPER "OFTEN REGARDED AS THE FIRST PRESENTATION OF BOOLEAN ALGEBRA IN ITS MODERN FORM" (Grattan-Guinnes, ed. Companion Encyclopedia of the History and Philosophy of the Mathematical Sciences, Volume 1, p. 608). Charles Sanders Peirce was an accomplished scientist, philosopher, and mathematician, but he considered himself above all a logician. "His contributions to the development of modern logic at the turn of the 20th century were colossal, original and influential" (Encyclopedia of Philosophy). The development of "a formal language in which mathematical statements could be made, and rules for correctly inferring statements from statements" was central to modern proof theory (Byrne, Peirce's First-Order Logic of 1885, 949). From at least the time of Leibniz, their exists a history of formalizing language in order to formalize steps of inference. The introduction of quantification to the formalization of mathematical statements was a critical step in the development of such languages. Peirce's seminal 1885 paper on the mathematics of logic, presents his theory of quantification - a complete presentation of logic in an algebraic format. Peirce began his research into the algebra of logic late in the 1860s and began investigating laws on operations of relation algebras by at least 1870. Writing in 1884 (for the 1885 paper), Peirce was blunt about his intent: "In this paper I purpose to develop an algebra adequate to the treatment of all problems of deductive logic, showing as I proceed what kind of signs have necessarily to be employed at each stage of the development. I shall thus attain three objects. The first is the extension of the power of logical algebra over the whole of its proper realm. The second is the illustration of principles which underlie all algebraic notation. The third is the enumeration of the essentially different kinds of necessary inference; for when the notation which suffices for exhibiting one inference is found inadequate for explaining another, it is clear that the latter involves an inferential element not present in the former" (Peirce, 1885). In "his important 1880 paper", Peirce "broke with the Aristotelian semantics of classes and introduced modern semantics, allowing a class symbol to be empty (as well as to be the universe), and stated the truth values of the categorical propositions that we use today" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy); The Essential Peirce: 1867-1893, v. 1, 1992). Specifically, he explicitly eliminated "the Aristotelian derivation of particular statements from universal statements by giving the modern meaning for "All A is B". In addition, he extended the algebra of logic for classes to the algebra of logic for binary relations and introduced general sums and products to handle quantification" (Stanford). Many, including the noted logician and philosopher Arthur Prior, have argued that Peirce's 1880 paper alone "provides a complete basis for propositional logic" (Encyclopedia of Philosophy). Further still, the 1880 paper "holds a place of some importance in the history of formal logic and mathematics [in part because in it, Peirce] discusses that relationship between thinking and cerebration (or logic and physiology)" (ibid). The "fruitfulness" of Peirce's thinking in the 1880 paper is most evident in the watershed paper of 1885 wherein he introduces an entire "system for propositional logic based on five axioms for implication (represented by the signs '-. CONDITION & DETAILS: Two volumes. Large 4to. (12 X 9.5 inches; 300 x 237mm). The volumes are tightly and handsomely bound in three-quarter red calf over marbled paper boards.

        Tradiciones y leyendas mexicanas. Edicion de gran lujo, adornada con multitud de artisticos grabados intercalados en el texto, ricas laminas sueltas y preciosos cromos

      Mexico City: J. Ballesca, 1885. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. 8vo. 359, [5] pp. With 8 chromolithographs, all with original tissue guards, all in extremely bright and fresh state. Bound in original Mexican publisher's cloth, very oddly decorated with a skeleton facing a spooky Mayan statue, the whole surrounded by Mayan glyphs. Front inner hinge expertly mended. Extraordinary 19th-century Mexican chromolithographs illustrate this important book of Mexican poetry. "Tradiciones y leyendas mexicanas" is a true collaboration between two of the most significant Mexican writers of the era, portraying in elegant verse a colorful picture of the "New Spain" of the conquistadors: the Mexico of yore. Concerning this first edition, published by Ballesca, "en lujosa edicion, que aparecio sin fecha. Se sabe hoy que el alo de publicacion fue 1885" (Jose Ortiz Monasterio, Historia y ficcion. Los dramas y novelas de Vincente Riva Palacio, Mexico City, 1993, p. 316). Monasterio fails to mention how he this date "is known." For the record, it is clearly stated in an account of the lawsuit between the publisher and the authors in: Recopilacion de leyes, decretos y providencias de los poderes legislativo y ejecutivo de la union: Desde que se establecio en la ciudad de Mexico el Supremo Gobierno, Volume 45 (1887) pp. 166-167. No copy in the U.S. according to Worldcat (sic), although Estrelle Lutrell's "Mexican Writers" (1920) describes a copy at the University of Arizona. The Univ. Arizona Library's online catalogue shows that their copy is lacking the final two leaves (Table of Contents and List of Plates); it is also wrongly described as having "10" plates, whereas the actual number of plates is 8 as per the "List of Plates" -- all present in our copy. Two issues of the binding cloth are here recorded for the first time: light brown (as here) and dark green (cf. Morton Auction 686, October 23, 2013, lot 230). Our copy bears a warm presentation inscription from the author to Canovas del Castillo (Madrid, 18 March 1887). Rare in any condition.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1885 - 1885 Wisden Paperback, Facsimile Spine, Very Good.

      1885. This is a delightful 1885 Original Paperback Wisden, 22nd Edition, with facsimile spine. The covers are super, odd mark but amazing for well over 100 years old, internally it is a very bright book, the odd spot to the odd page but for 1885 it is as white as they come. Spine is of similar colour to the book, the advantage of the facsimile spine is that you can read it without fear of breaking it , plus it is cheaper than an original too. Please note lettering on the spine of Wisdens started in 1887. A super addition to any collection.

        Lois et origines de l'électricité atmosphérique

      VII-48 pp. Paris, Gauthier-Villars, 1885, in-8, VII-48 pp, demi basane brune, Traduit de l'italien par Paul Marcillac et A. Brunet. Figures dans le texte, représentant des appareils utilisés par l'auteur pour ses expériences. Luigi Palmieri (1807-1896), célèbre pour ses travaux en volcanologie et en météorologie, commença ses investigations sur l'électricité atmosphérique dans les années 1850. Il apporta des améliorations à l'électromètre de Peltier et pu conduire d'importantes recherches pendant près de 40 ans : l'électromètre de Palmieri "sera pour l'électricité atmosphérique ce que la balance de Coulomb est pour l'électricité de tension" (Hallez d'Arros). L'instrument est décrit dans cet ouvrage et est reproduit en figure 4. Palmieri réunit une importante collection de machines et d'instruments de physique qu'il mit à la disposition de l'institution de physique qu'il avait fondée dans les années 1830. En 1847, il fut nommé à la chaire de physique de l'Université de Naples et, en 1854, il succéda à Melloni en tant que directeur de l'observatoire du Vésuve. Il fut l'un des principaux collaborateurs de la revue française l'Électricité. Dos épidermé, une charnière fendue. Rousseurs pâles. Hallez d'Arros, "Louis Palmieri, Directeur de l'observatoire du Vésuve", L'électricité n° 3, 5 février 1879. Cachet annulé de l'institut catholique de Paris

        Cape Town 1884.

      Artist: ; issued in: ; date: 1885 - - technic: Lithography; colorit: colored; condition: Missing parts on the left side perfectly restored, folded; size in cm : 58 x 75,5 - description: Decorative city map of Cape town, depicting the city in 1884.The top of the map points more south than south west, unlike the more common convention of orientating to north in modern maps.Some of the things to note are the location of the Cape Town Station, the Sea Point Railway and the tramway from the Amsterdam Battery to the Standard Bank in Adderly Street. The Cape Town Station used to stand where one now finds the Golden Acre Shopping center, whilst the Goods Station was where today's Cape Town Station is.The earliest known remnants in the region were found at Peers cave in Fish Hoek and date to between 15,000 and 12,000 years ago.Little is known of the history of the region's first residents, since there is no written history from the area before it was first mentioned by Portuguese explorer Bartolomeu Dias in 1486. Vasco da Gama recorded a sighting of the Cape of Good Hope in 1497. In the late 16th century, Portuguese, French, Danish, Dutch and English ships regularly stopped over in Table Bay en route to the Indies. They traded tobacco, copper and iron with the Khoikhoi in exchange for fresh meat. In 1652, Jan van Riebeeck and other employees of the Dutch East India Company were sent to the Cape to establish a way-station for ships travelling to the Dutch East Indies, and the Fort de Goede Hoop (later replaced by the Castle of Good Hope).
