London, Colburn, This is the third of Buckingham's four Middle-Eastern travel accounts, here in the 8vo. version. Commenting on the paucity of information respecting Mesopotamia, he places his narrative at the end of a list of those written by Benjamin of Tudela, Rauwolff, Della Valle, Otter and Niebuhr. The author was unaccompanied by any servant or companion, at all times adopted native dress and manners during his travels. He writes in a lively and entertaining way.This work proved much less contentious than his first ?Travels in Palestine? which had provoked a long and bitter argument with William Bankes. At the end of the above work Buckingham appended a long account of the final act of this seven year spat: his successful libel case against Bankes and John Murray, and the award of four hundred pounds damages.

Buckingham (1786–1855) spent much of his early life as a merchant sailor. Between 1813 and 1814 he travelled in Egypt, meeting Muhammad Ali Pasha, who despatched him to Bombay to develop trade with India. There he accepted a further commission from the Imam of Muscat, but was forced to return to Egypt by the East India Company. From Cairo he travelled overland India through Syria, Iraq and Iran. Travels in Mesopotamia recounts the Aleppo to Baghdad leg of the voyage, undertaken in mid-1816. In 1818 he established the Calcutta Journal, an antigovernment periodical, and was expelled from India five years later, subsequently becoming a vocal supporter of the temperance and other Liberal movements. He "spent far longer in the Arab world than most other occasional visitors" (Hamilton, The Arcadian Library, p. 96) and his travel writings, which he wrote partly to fund legal battles in defence of his character, are "especially notable for the information they provide about social conditions in the many countries he visited" (ODNB). Travels in Mespotamia is considered "full of lively descriptions and sympathetic characters" (Blackmer).

         Mémoire sur la théorie mathématique des phénomènes électro-dynamiques déduite de l’expérience, dans lequel se trouvent réunis les Mémoires que M. Ampère a communiqués a l’Académie royale des Sciences, dans les séances des 4 et 26 décembre 1820, 10 juin 1822, 22 décembre 1823, 12 septembre et 21 novembre 1825. Extract from the Mémoires de l’Académie Royale des Sciences de l’Institut de France, Tome VI, Année 1823.

      Firmin Didot, [Paris 1827 - First edition, journal issue, of the ?Principia of electrodynamics? (DSB). ?Having established a noumenal foundation for electrodynamic phenomena, Ampere?s next steps were to discover the relationships between the phenomena and to devise a theory from which these relationships could be mathematically deduced. This double task was undertaken in the years 1821-1825, and his success was reported in his greatest work . In this work, the Principia of electrodynamics, Ampere first described the laws of action of electric currents? (DSB). ?The experimental investigation by which Ampère established the laws of the mechanical action between electric currents is one of the most brilliant achievements in science. The whole, theory and experiment, seems as if it had leaped, full grown and full armed, from the brain of the 'Newton of electricity.' It is perfect in form, and unassailable in accuracy, and it is summed up in a formula from which all the phenomena may be deduced, and which must always remain the cardinal formula of electro-dynamics? (James Clerk Maxwell, Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism, Vol. II, p. 162).Provenance: ?Th. Von der Kühle (?), Göttingen, 1862? (inscription on front free endpaper); Universitätsbibliothek Basel (ink stamp on front free endpaper).?By that time, early 1823, Ampère?s electrodynamics had reached maturity. With the perfected Ampère law, the Ampèrean currents, and proper analytical tools, one could calculate every known magnetic or electromagnetic effect. However, a systematic account of the theory was still wanting. This Ampère gave in 1826 with his masterful ?Mémoire sur la théorie des phénomènes électro-dynamiques, uniquement déduite de l?expérience.??Imitating the rhetorics of Newton?s Principia or Fourier?s Théorie Analytique de la Chaleur, Ampere presented his results as the plain expression of experimental truths: ?I have solely consulted experiment to establish the laws of these phenomena, and I have deduced the only formula that can represent the forces to which they are due.? Later commentators have had no difficulty detecting a few unwarranted hypotheses in Ampere's theory, for example the central character of elementary forces, the absence of elementary torque, and the Ampèrean currents. There is no reason, however, to doubt Ampere's sincerity. As was mentioned, the concept of physical current elements, on which the character of the action between current elements depended, seemed to be materialized in his apparatus. The currents in magnets were not a hypothesis, as far as they were the only consistent way to unify magnetism and electromagnetism: 'The proofs on which I base [my theory] mostly result from the fact that they reduce to a single principle three sorts of actions which all phenomena prove to depend on a common cause, and which cannot be reduced in a different manner.?Most important, Ampère?s formula for the force between two current elements did not depend on any assumption regarding the nature of the electric current and connected mechanisms: ?Whatever be the physical cause to which we may wish to relate the phenomena produced by this action, the formula obtained will always remain the expression of facts.? As we shall see, this turned out to be largely true, since Ampère?s formula (at least its consequences for closed currents) remained an essential basis for the construction of all later theories of electrodynamics. Ampère again compared himself to Fourier, whose equations for heat propagation had survived Fresnel's wave theory of light and heat. Extending the parallel, Ampère did not exclude the search for physical causes. He himself speculated on various mechanisms for the production of electrodynamic forces, as will be seen in a moment. But he required a clean separation between laws and causes.For the determination of the force between two current elements, Ampère offereda polished version of the null method, which was ?more direct, simpler, and susceptible of great prec

         A Fatal Duel Set Up by N.C. Congressman & Later Republic of Texas’s Secretary of State

      1827 - Autograph Letter Signed. Daring Former North Carolina Congressmen Dr. Robert B. Vance to challenge him to a duel, September 12, 1827. 2 pp. Browned paper, stain on verso, some losses on the edges and minor tears, but unique. "the malignant shafts of your disappointed ambition fell perfectly harmless at my feet. I am incapable of any revenge towards you & let me assure you that my chivalry would not permit me to avenge any rongs which you could offer. But if you are serious make good your bost-throw the gantlett upon nutrill ground."Jacksonian Congressman Samuel P. Carson dares his recent opponent Dr. Robert B. Vance to challenge him to a duel. Carson had won Vance's seat in 1825. In 1827, Vance tried to regain his old seat, in part by accusing Carson's father of turning Tory during the Revolutionary War. Carson's lopsided victory (by more than a two-to-one margin) apparently wasn't enough. On November 5, 1827, the men met near Saluda Gap, perhaps just over the border into South Carolina, where dueling was legal until 1880. Vance withheld his shot. Carson did not. He seriously wounded Vance, who died the next day. Complete TranscriptDoctor Robert B VanceMy friend Capt. Burgin is instructed to know of you distinctly before he hands you this whether I was the 'chivalrous son' alluded to in your epistle to my father dated the 6th instant. If so this is my answer had you recollected my language to you at Morganton which was not equivocal & which gave you distinctly to understand what you are to expect at my hands you would have spared yourself the trouble of writing or alluding to me in any way. However sir the malignant shafts of your disappointed ambition fell perfectly harmless at my feet. I am incapable of any revenge towards you & let me assure you that my chivalry would not permit me to avenge any rongs which you could offer To say nothing of your want of those principles which would induce a man of chivalry to notice you. You are exempt from responsibility by the misfortune (a calamity I would pity in any man) of the loss of almost the entire use one limb. I will do no act in violation of the laws of my state but as you have bosted that you had flung the gantlet before me which in point of fact is not true For in the language of chivalry to fling the gantlett is to challenge to throw down the Iron glove (an experiment your chivalry may not permit you to hazard) But if you are serious make good your bost-throw the gantlett upon nutrill ground then if not excepted bost your victory. You should not have bosted before for true chivalry never bosts much less bosts of victory without the risque & danger of wining it You have been faithless to agreements sacred to honour I will not therefore place my self in your power by violating the laws of my state Not to be misunderstood you have received the votes of 2419 citizens of this district as a fit representative in congress this gives you a claim which individually you are not entitled to On my way to Congress I will pass through Ashvill to meet sum friends in East Tennessee your course is open I will spend a week at Jonesborough on my roughtI am &c Sam P CarsonPlesent GardenSeptmr 12th 1827Samuel Price Carson (1798-1838) from North Carolina served several terms in the U.S. House of Representatives, becoming good friends with Davy Crockett. Ill health prompted him to settle in Mississippi, after which he moved to Texas. He was elected a delegate for the Convention of 1836 and signed the Texas Declaration of Independence. He lost by six votes to David G. Burnet for the position of president ad interim. Selected as secretary of state and sent to Washington, D.C. to negotiate Texas' joining the United States, he was replaced after a few months. Carson retired to Hot Springs, Arkansas, where he died two years later.Robert B. Vance (1793-1827) was born near Ashville, North Carolina. Vance studied medicine, and began his practice in Ashville i. (See website for full description)

         Large Antique Bird Print-LITTLE OWL-STRIX ACADICA-Audubon-1827

      - From the extremely scarse 'Havell' edition!: 'Little Owl', Strix Acadica, male and female. The plate shows the owl having caught a common mouse. Hand-colored aquatint, etching and line engraving on a vellin type paper. Description: This print originates from John James Audubon's renowned The Birds of America (London, 1827-1838). This is the most important and expensive work on North American ornithology ever produced. Audubon's Birds consist of 435 artistically hand-colored engravings showing birds mostly in their actual sizes. The entire masterpiece took twelve years to complete. Sold by subscription only, the prints were sold in groups or parts of five which were later bound in large leather volumes. The first ten plates were engraved by the firm of William Lizar's of Edinburgh; when Lizar's colorists went on strike, Audubon chose Robert Havell Jr., a skillful engraver and talented artist, to complete the publication. The Havell edition, of which it is estimated that 175 complete sets were produced, is the first edition of this work.Artists and Engravers: John James Audubon (1785-1851) was a French-American ornithologist, naturalist, hunter, and painter. He painted, catalogued, and described the birds of North America in a form far superior to what had gone before. In his outsize personality and achievements, he seemed to represent the new American nation of the United States. Robert Havell, Jr. (1793-1878) was the principal engraver of Audubon's Birds of America. Condition: Fine. Some minimal age related toning and some minimal staining. Since this is one of the smaller prints from this series, the original larger size paper was made smaller to allow for better framing. Margins well outside of platemark. Very faint yellowing in the top margin. Storage location: TPC-P4-04 The overall size is ca. 19.7 x 25.6 inch. The image size is ca. 10.4 x 18.3 inch. The overall size is ca. 50 x 65 cm. The image size is ca. 26.5 x 46.5 cm. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
