        On Multiple Algebra'. Pp. 37-66 in: Proceedings of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, Thirty-Fifth Meeting [Vol. XXXV], Buffalo, New York, August 1886.

      Salem: Permanent Secretary, January, 1887. - Entire volume offered. Original printed wrappers (edges neatly repaired). Very Good. Housed in a new, custom-made clamshell box, leather spine labels. An address by Gibbs, an AAAS Vice President, before the Section of Mathematics and Astronomy (Section A). 'The great merit and power of Grassmann's system, as set forth in Gibbs' address, lies in its generality and inclusiveness. It is in the recognition of different kinds of products that Grassmann's system differs most radically from the multiple algebras of the others, such as those of Hamilton and Pierce. And it was in connection with this concept of a plurality of multiplications that Gibbs founded his principal contributions to the subject. The development of the dyadic analysis undoubtedly forms Gibbs' most significant contribution to multiple algebra. His recognition of the key position of the indeterminate product in the Grassmannian system and its relation to the theory of matrices as well as his demonstration that both the algebraic and the external or combinatorial products could be derived from the indeterminate product, was an original contribution of great value' (Wheeler, Josiah Willard Gibbs, p. 113). According to Wheeler, Gibbs sent out 276 copies of the offprint, which was reset. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Art Of Golf

      David Douglas 1887 - Joseph Murdoch describes this book as "one of the classic books of golf literature", and it is the first book to use photographs to demonstrate the swing, and also the first to show actual players in action on links courses, including "Old" Tom Morris. Sir Walter Simpson was a 19th century Scottish philosopher and a Captain of The Honourable Company of Edinburgh Golfers. He was one of the first people to define what was meant by a golf "links": "The grounds on which golf is played are called links, being the barren sandy soil from which the sea has retired in recent geological times. In their natural state links are covered with long, rank bent grass and gorse. Links are too barren for cultivation: but sheep, rabbits, geese and professionals pick up a precarious livelihood on them." First Edition. 8vo. xii + 186pp + one advertisement leaf. 20 plates, 10 diags, nuermous text illustrations, engraved title-page, lacks last page 185/186. Original upper board decorated with an engraving of the Winter Medal of the Honourable Company of Edinburgh. original lower board decorated with a pile of four golf balls, small mark to lower left portion.

        Papers Literary, Scientific, &c

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co,, 1887. Edited by Sidney Colvin and J. A. Ewing. With a Memoir by Robert Louis Stevenson. In Two Volumes. 2 volumes, octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spines gilt, boards panelled in blind, brown coated endpapers. Photographic frontispiece portrait with tissue guard, 6 other black and white plates and 54 diagrams in the text. Spines sunned and starting to fray at extremities, corners of boards a little rubbed, endpapers faintly marked, title page and tissue-guard in Volume I foxed, else foxing occasional and light. A very good set. First edition of Professor Jenkin's collected works. Introduced by a biography by Robert Louis Stevenson, once one of Jenkin's engineering students at Edinburgh University, the works are divided into six sections reflecting Jenkin's versatility: Literature and Drama, Speculative Science, Political Economy, Scientific and Technical Education, Applied Science, Abstracts of Fleeming Jenkin's Scientific Papers, and concluding with a list of the thirty-five British patents Jenkins filed for during his lifetime. An electrical engineer and pioneer of the telegraph, Jenkin wrote several influential papers on economics, including "The graphic representation of the laws of supply and demand, and their application to labour", "On the principles which regulate the incidence of taxes", and, the first he wrote on the subject, "Trade unions: how far legitimate?", initially published in the North British Review in 1868, which "began his distinguished five-paper contribution to political economy. He advanced modern wage theory and introduced the graphical method into British economic literature. Observing that contemporary economists failed to acknowledge Jenkin's priority, J. A. Schumpeter (in 1954) summarized Jenkin as 'an economist of major importance, whose main papers (…) form an obvious stepping stone between J. S. Mill and [Alfred] Marshall' (Schumpeter, 837)" (ODNB).

        Autograph Letter Signed, three pages 8vo, Centre Harbor, N.H.Written as Quaker date of 7th mo., 20, 1887 (July 20, 1887)

      - To a Friend, It is a matter of real regret to me that I am not able to be with you on the occasion of the birthday of our worthy friend, Edwin Thompson [abolitionist]. I have known him as a faithful and self-sacrificing advocate (of) all good causes. More than 50 years ago, I met him at the convention which formed the First Temperance Society in Essex County, and about the same time, at the formation of the Essex Anti-Slavery Society. Since then, his genial face and cheering voice has been rarely missed wherever the Friends of Temperance and Freedom met together. He was always a welcome speaker. Like President Lincoln, he had the gift of story-telling, and his stories were always to the purpose, putting to shame his opponents with ready wit and humor. Through the long Anti-Slavery struggle, his labors were unremitting, but he was always brave and hopeful and, in the midst of persecution, never posed as a martyr. His enthusiasm of humanity was remarkable healthful; there was no whine or cant in it, and he heartily enjoyed it, for it was its own exceeding great reward. It is fitting that we should honor him and congratulate him that his 78th birthday finds him the same cheerful, warm-hearted man we have known so long; and, (it) will not be amiss if we give him some substantial and unsolicited assurance of our esteem and love. O this end, I enclose my mite with the best wishes for his health and happiness. Signed, I am, truly thy friend, John G. Whittier" Whittier is depicted so often as the gentle Quaker that the fiery politician within him is often forgotten. He declared himself an abolitionist in the pamphlet 'Justice and Expediency' (1833) and went to the unpopular National Antislavery Convention. In 1834-35 he sat in the Massachusetts legislature; he ran for Congress on the Liberty ticket in 1842 and was a founder of the Republican Party. He also worked staunchly behind the scenes to further the abolitionist cause.

        Stadthaus. Kolorierte Autographie von Wilhelm Heuer.

      1887.. 19,7 x 30 cm. Diese Haus war eines der wenigen Häuser, welche 1842 beim Brande des Neuen Walls gerettet wurde. Es war im Jahre 1722 von der Stadt angekauft worden. Das Haus, nach seinem Erbauer, dem Baron Görtz, Finanzminister Carls XII., auch "Görtzisches Haus oder Görtzsches Palais" genannt, galt als das ansehnlichste Wohngebäude in der Stadt. Das es ein imposanter Bau war, zeigt die Abbildung. Der Neue Wall besaß überhaupt relativ viele ansehnliche Häuser und war eine der besten Straßen der Stadt, ziemlich gerade gebaut und 2035 Fuß lang, die längste Straße in Hamburg, dabei aber eng und ohne eigentliches Trottoir, wenn auch sonst gut gepflastert. Die Straße wurde 1707 durch Abtragung des Voglerwalles zum Bebauen hergerichtet. Die Bauplätze wurden von der Kämmerei unter der Bedingung verkauft, daß keine Kattundruckerei, Färberei, Gerberei und dergleichen betrieben werde. In seinen letzten Lebensjahren schuf Wilhelm Heuer eine Serie von 84 Autographien. Dabei handelt es sich um Federlithographien in einem vereinfachten Umdruckverfahren. Kein Blatt gleicht dem anderen, auch bei identischer Bilddarstellung ergeben sich Abweichungen im Bildformat. Beim Druck wurden viele unterschiedliche Papiere benutzt. Die Auflage dürfte je Motiv 30 Exemplare nicht überschritten haben, viele Motive sind nur in wenigen Exemplaren gedruckt worden. Salamon 11. AUT 69.
