        The Economic Writings of Sir William Petty,

      together with the Observations upon the Bills of Mortality more probably by Captain John Graunt. Edited by Charles Henry Hull, First Edition thus, 2 volumes, xci, 313; [8], [317-]700pp with some folding facsimiles of handwriting, ALS &c., a very good set in original cloth with the gilt stamp of the New South Wales Library of Parliament on both front boards and very faint stamps on titles, a little spotting, Cambridge, at the University Press, 1899.The first scholarly edition collecting together all of Petty's important writings - along with Graunt's Observations upon the Bills of Mortality (now definitively known to be by Graunt although at one time considered to be by Petty since he fraudulently claimed it to be his own; see Pearson, The History of Statistics, p.17ff). It was Petty who coined the term "political arithmetic" and it was Petty who is credited as the first to formulate a general theory of government founded on concrete empirical knowledge. The present edition of his works includes all the important works including A Treatise of Taxation and Contributions, 1662; The Political Anatomy of Ireland, 1672; Political Arithmetick, 1676; and his Observations Upon the Dublin Bills of Mortality, 1681; - "a path-breaker in demographic analysis" (- Sills, International Encyclopaedia of the Social Sciences, Vol 12, p.57). "Petty's analytical skill and his insistence on measurement and his clear schematic view of the economy make him the first econometrician, and he was constantly evolving and using concepts and analytical methods that were in advance of his time.." (op cit p.67). Graunt's work, The Natural and Political Observations of Mortality, of which the fifth edition of 1676 is here reprinted, can be seen, in fact, as being even more important than Petty's. Photograph available on request.

        Pictures of Early New York on Dark Blue Staffordshire Pottery. Together with Pictures of Boston and New England, Philadelphia, the South and West

      Dodd Mead NY: Dodd, Mead, 1899. Three quarto volumes. xxvi, 330pp. From an edition of 268, this is one of thirty copies on Imperial Japon. In addition, this is a unique copy with an extra set of the 126 color photogravure plates printed on white satin and backed in celadon silk. The colors of the blue and white pottery, as well as some sepia and multi-colored ware, seem to glow and take on a three-dimensional quality. Bound in a full blue morocco "Adams Mosaique" binding, with an oak-leaf and acorn pattern within a rococo oval frame, inlaid in cream and teal morocco. The oak garland motif is repeated in gilt in the six spine compartments. Gilt turn-ins, with satin doublures illustrated with blue-and-white Harvard dishes, and moiré silk endleaves complete the binding. A fore-edge painting represents a blue-and-white Staffordshire pitcher. The extra suite on satin is laid into two blue morocco drop-back boxes bound with spines to match the book, with oak garlands on front and back, and with doublures and linings of cream silk damask. Some small rubbed spots to spines and tears to damask linings, otherwise fine. The three blue morocco volumes are housed in green morocco pull-off boxes with an Art Deco design in gilt. Outer boxes show a few small rubbed spots. A rich, unique, and beautifully presented set.

        Le Cinquiéme Acte [in l'Aurore, no. 694, 12 sept. 1899].

      Paris, 1899. [61,5x45,5 cm]. 4 pages. Folded twice. Slightly yellowed and with some light creases. A very well-preserved copy. Zola's text covers 4 of the 6 columns on the front page. Le Cinquième Acte, published in september 1899, was the fourth of altogether seven articles and open letters published by Zola in l'Aurore between 1898 and 1900 in favour of the French Army captain of Jewish and Alsatian descent Alfred Dreyfus, charged with treason in 1894 in a much-publicized affaire. In the article Zola expresses his outrage with the military tribunal in Rennes where Dreyfus, repatriated from his imprisonment on the Devil's Island, was tried again only to be re-condemned despite clear evidence in favour of his innocence. The anger and disappointment of Zola, who had spent almost a year in exile in London in the aftermath of his 1898 open letter "J'Accuse...!" is quite palpable in the text. The Rennes trial was, says Zola, supposed to be the fifth act of the play that was the Dreyfus affair -- a happy ending where the wronged party is redeemed -- but it turned out to be only the "fourth act": "When, Oh dear God, will there be the Fifth?" Zola did not have to wait for very long for the "fifth act", as Dreyfus was pardoned later that same year on the grounds of feeble health. The finale of the affair was however not enacted until 1906, when Dreyfus was formally acquitted and his honour restored, something Zola himself sadly never lived to see

        A THOUSAND DAYS IN THE ARCTIC: With Preface by Admiral Sir F. Leopold McClintock.

      London and New York: Harper & Brothers, 1899.. 1st Edition: Vol I xxi, 551pp, Vol II xxii-xv, 580pp. Appendices, indices. Illustrated throughout with over one hundred eighty black & white drawings, plates, 5 maps. Matched set. Original blue cloth over boards with gilt decorative devices to front cover, gilt titling to spine and front covers, top edges gilt. A day-by-day journal of the Jackson-Harmsworth Expedition (1894-97). The party established winter quarters at Cape Flora, Franz Joseph Land, and remained there for 3 years. By sheer coincidence, Fridtjof Nansen and Hjalmar Johansen encountered Jackson's camp in June of 1896 during the Fram Expedition, and enjoyed several weeks of generous hospitality (after surviving through the winter on walrus and bear meat). Throughout their stay, the party made sledge journeys in the archipelago, surveyed, made scientific collections, hunted, and described the polar night. Includes a chapter on scurvy. [AB 7943]. "This is an unvarnished tale of a thousand consecutive days spent in the Arctic, printed almost word for word as it was written--while the facts and impressions were fresh in my memory--in our hut, or tent, when on sledging and boating journeys in Franz-Josef Land. It is a simple, true account and statement of facts incident to our life and work there--plain facts, penned by a plain man." (from the author's note). A very important title in early arctic exploration. Shelfware, corners bumped, chipping to spines, some small splits to spines. Moderate foxing, tear to 2 of the 5 folding maps, all maps fragile, staining to creases as expected. An original set, now very difficult to find with the original bindings. Good.
