        Tiresias

      London,: George Bell,, 1886.. Octavo; some notes in pencil throughout, but a very good uncut copy in original red cloth, gilt device on upper board. Author's signed presentation copy. Like so many of his contemporaries, Woolner was lured to the Australian goldfields in the hope of securing a fortune. After six months without success he settled briefly in Melbourne where he won a number of commissions including a medallion of Governor Latrobe, and in Sydney a portrait of Sir Charles Fitzroy, and Charles Wentworth. In 1879, during the height of his successful career, he was commissioned to sculpt the statue of Captain Cook which stands in Hyde Park, Sydney. Woolner, famous as both a poet and sculptor, once said 'Poetry is not my proper work in this world; I must sculpture it, not write it'.

        Les Intégraphes. La Courbe Intégrale et ses Applications. [Bound together with C. Bohn: Über Linsenzusammenstellungen und Ihren Ersatz].

      Paris, Gauthier-Villars, 1886. Royal8vo. In contemporary half cloth with paper label pasted on to top of spine. Occassional brownspots throughout. With 94 figures in the text. X, 156 pp.; (4), 88 pp. 20, 16, 15, 18, (31) advertising. First edition of Abakanowicz's famous integraph. It was invented independently about 1880 by the British physicist Sir Charles Vernon Boys and by Bruno Abakanowicz, however, the later being referred to as inventor (Goldstein, L'Europe mathématique: histoires, mythes, identities). "The developments in the integraph design made by Abdank-Abakanowicz in France in the 1870s have been acknowledged as amongst the most noteworthy" (Small, The Electronic Analogue Computer, P. 59)."The integraph is an elaboration and extension of the planimeter, an earlier, simpler instrument used to measure area. It is a mechanical instrument capable of deriving the integral curve corresponding to a given curve. Hence, it is able to solve elementary differential equations graphically. However, it was not until 1878 that he succeeded in developing a practical model. "This volume is a description of the basic Abakanowicz instrument and a few of its later modifications. Abdank-Abakanowicz's instrument was able to produce solutions for only simpler differential equations, i.e., the commonly entountered class having the form dy/dx = F(x). An instrumental solution requires that as a first step a graph of the function F be drawn. Next, a pointer on the instrument is used to follow (trace) this graph. The value of the integral may then be read from the instrumentdials. This Abakanowicz approach was widely adopted in the early twentieth century, and the instrument was produced, and later improved, by such well-known instrument makers as Coradi in Zurich" (The Erwin Tomash Library, Vol. 1, p. 2.).Bound with Abakanowicz's Integraph is:Répertoire Alphabétique des Procédés et Recettes publiés par Le Monde de la Science et de l'Industrie pendant les Années 1880 à 1886.

        THE BOSTONIANS

      1886. London and New York: Macmillan and Co., 1886. 2 pp undated ads. Original dark blue-green cloth decorated in black and gilt. First one-volume edition (second edition overall), copies of which also served as the first American edition. This satirical novel of New England reformers and philanthropists is "a brilliantly sustained comedy and in the opinion of many critics only surpassed in the work of Henry James by THE PORTRAIT OF A LADY" [CGEL].~It was initially published in three volumes (500 copies, February 1886) -- which first edition is now quite rare, commanding low-five-figure prices in collectible condition. This 5000-copy second edition was printed a month later, the majority of copies being then issued in America with a maroon-and-pink binding; the others were issued in this dark blue-green binding in May 1886, the majority without an ad leaf for domestic U. K. consumption, plus some such as this one with a leaf of dollar ads, for American audiences. This is an attractive copy, very nearly fine (the slightest of shelfwear on the bottom edge).

      Cambridge - University Press, 1886 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A series of plates detailing the architecture of the University of Cambridge and of the colleges of Cambridge and Eton. First edition. A green and brown cloth hardback with gilt lettering. The Reverend Robert Willis (1800 - 1875) was an English academic. He was the first Cambridge professor to win widespread recognition as a mechanical engineer, and first set the scientific study of vowels on a respectable foundation, but now best remembered for his extensive architectural writings, including a 4-volume treatise on the architecture of the University of Cambridge. In 1841 he published his Principles of mechanism, and in 1851 A system of Apparatus for the use of lecturers and experimenters in Mechanical Philosophy, as well as many works on medieval architecture and the mechanical construction of English cathedrals, notable for his incisive decompositions of these structures' functional and decorative aspects. He willed his manuscript on the Architectural History of the University of Cambridge to his nephew John Willis Clark who completed it. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some bumping and fraying to the extremities and the cloth of volume ii has split. The front inner hinge of volume i has split. Internally the pages are clean and bright, with spotting to some of the plates in volume ivand endpapers only. There is an institutional nameplate on the front endpapers of volume i. Overall the condition is very good..
