         Cours complet d'économie politique pratique

      Chez Rapilly 1828 - - Chez Rapilly, à Paris 1828 - 1833, in-8 (12,5x20cm), VI, 458pp. et VII, 479pp. et VII, 472pp. et VIII, 490pp. et VIII, 393pp. et VII, 451 pp. et (vij) xxviij, 472pp., 6 volumes reliés. - Edition originale. Un tableau dépliant dans le tome I. Le septième volume, publié de manière posthume en 1833 : Mélanges et correspondance d'économie politique, est un choix de la correspondance de Say à Ricardo, Malthus, Dupont de Nemours. On trouve rarement ce volume relié uniformément avec le Cours. Reliures en demi basane marine, vers 1840. Dos lisses ornés de 3 fers type Restauration et de filets. Titres et tomaisons dorés. Dos éclaircis, virant au vert. Ensemble frotté, notamment aux coiffes, bordures. Nombreux coins émoussés. Quelques rares piqûres, papier dans l'ensemble légèrement bruni. Tout d'abord et dès son premier ouvrage qui remporta un vif succès : Traité d'économie politique en 1803, Jean-Baptiste Say vulgarise l'oeuvre de son comparse anglais Adam Smith, dont il se voulait le disciple. Il fut incontestablement un grand pédagogue, et ces cours retracent ses leçons au Conservatoire des arts et métiers où il fut nommé en 1820 comme professeur d'économie politique. Il est le père de l'ultra-libéralisme et sa loi des débouchés, ou loi de Say, affirme que toute offre crée sa propre demande, le Laissez-faire étant partout la meilleure des solutions. En ce sens, il ira plus loin que Smith et en tant que théoricien de l'offre, sera plus tard critiqué par Keynes. En outre, Say est l'un des principaux responsables de la constitution de l'économie comme science humaine distincte. A l'opposé de Ricardo, il tend vers une économie "pratique", fondée sur des chiffres et des études. On lira avec intérêt le chapitre sur le Remboursement de la dette publique, préoccupation cruciale de toute nation aujourd'hui. [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] first edition. A table brochure in Volume I. The seventh volume, published posthumously in 1833: Mix and match political economy, is a choice of correspondence Say to Ricardo, Malthus, Dupont de Nemours . We rarely find this volume connected uniformly with the Course . Bindings in demi-basane marine, circa 1840. Smooth back decorated with 3 irons type Restoration and nets. Titles and golden tones. Back lightened, turning green. A rubbed assembly, especially for cuffs, borders. Many corners blunt. A few rare bites, paper in the whole slightly browned. First of all, and in his first work, which was a great success: Treatise on political economy in 1803, Jean-Baptiste Say vulgarizes the work of his English comparator Adam Smith, of whom he was a disciple. He was undoubtedly a great teacher, and these courses retrace his lessons at the Conservatory of Arts and Crafts, where he was appointed in 1820 as a professor of political economy. He is the father of ultra-liberalism and his law of outlets, or Say's law, asserts that every offer creates its own demand, with Laissez-faire being everywhere the best solutions. In this sense, he will go further than Smith and as supply theorist, will later be criticized by Keynes. In addition, Say is one of the main responsible for the constitution of the economy as a distinct human science. Unlike Ricardo, it tends towards a "practical" economy, based on figures and studies. We will read with interest the chapter on the Reimbursement of the public debt, a crucial concern of every nation today.

         AN EXAMINATION OF THE CIVIL ADMINISTRATION OF GOVERNOR JACKSON IN FLORIDA

      [Washington, D.C.: National Intelligencer, 1828. 48pp. (printed in nine numbers in five pamphlets, continuously paginated). Single folded sheets or gathered signatures. Somewhat tanned and foxed. Very good. Untrimmed, unopened, and in wholly original condition. The complete run of this anti-Jackson pamphlet series issued in nine parts during the heated 1828 Presidential campaign, which pitted Jackson against the incumbent John Quincy Adams. Printed by the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER, the work outlines a variety of supposed malfeasances committed by Jackson in his brief but controversial term as military commissioner of Florida. In the grand tradition of American political discourse, the articles are presented as letters, each previously published in the NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER and signed "Henry." The letters demonstrate Jackson's typically "violent, arbitrary, and rapacious disposition" as military governor of Florida, a position he held from March 10 to Dec. 31, 1821. Possible authorship of the letters is attributed to Henry M. Brackenridge by Servies. The letters describe Jackson's actions in Florida as "rivalling the bold but impious pretensions of King Henry the 8th." Jackson's legislative record during this period is assessed in despotic terms, accusing Jackson of seeking to "regulate the forms of secret devotion" by declaring a day of Sabbath observance. He is also accused of seizing private property without authority, placing it under his personal control, prohibiting liquor sales to soldiers, and committing other, equally-heinous acts. "Includes notes on the ordinances of 1821, and correspondence demonstrating Jackson's unsuitability as President" - Servies. The NATIONAL INTELLIGENCER was founded by Samuel Harrison Smith in 1800. The paper reflected Jeffersonian Republican sentiments, supported Jefferson for president, and enjoyed the significant privilege of printing Jefferson's first inaugural address before it appeared in any other periodical. Joseph Gales bought the paper in 1810; under Gales, the INTELLIGENCER supported Madison in 1812 and Monroe in 1816. At this time, the paper received many government printing contracts, as it would later enjoy during the John Quincy Adams administration, whom the paper also supported. And to be pro- Adams was, of course, to be anti-Jackson, thus explaining the present work. These pamphlets were likely issued separately, as here, and also printed in a single pamphlet later in 1828. Each part is rare, and complete runs are practically unheard of in the market. WISE & CRONIN 276. SERVIES 1366. AMERICAN IMPRINTS 33107.

         Three-Page Autograph Letter Signed from Xenia, Ohio discussing Andrew Jackson and Xenia

      1828. Very Good. Written on three sides of a bi-folium leaf addressed to Ephraim E. Sheppard of Bridgeton, New Jersey, and dated February 24th, 1828. Folded as mailed. Some small tears, creases, and small stains, else very good. A letter each from Benjamin and Ruth, apparently a married couple living in Xenia, Ohio. Both discuss the upcoming election and whether Jackson or Adams will win: the Nieukirks support Adams while apparently Sheppard is a Jacksonian. Benjamin, evidently a shopkeeper, asks after fashions and mentions hats; Ruth mentions family and gives a brief history of Xenia and its inhabitants. The Nieukirks emigrated from New Jersey to Xenia.

         JOURNAL pour la campagne 1827 et 28.

      1827-1828. - MANUCRIT in-4. 7ff. (4ff.blancs). 1f. 5ff. illustrés de profils de côte. 2ff. (21ff.blancs). 14ff. (3ffblancs). 5ff. (35ff.blancs). 2ff. Demi vélin, plats de cartonnage bleu-vert, lacets (reliure de l'époque, frottée et tachée). Intéressant manuscrit certainement tenu par un officier de marine d'un grade élevé, sorte de journal personnel touchant à différents sujets maritimes et illustré de profils de côtes. L'ouvrage s'ouvre sur la relation d'une croisière en Méditerranée, à bord des corvettes la Victorieuse et l'Iphigénie au départ de Toulon. L'auteur décrit les endroits visités: Malte, où ils sont reçus par le gouverneur, son Palais des anciens chevaliers et sa bibliothèque, les tombeaux des grands maîtres de l'Ordre; puis diverses îles grecques et notamment Milo, ses habitants et ses bains chauds, ainsi que les carrières de marbre de Paros. Cette partie se clôt sur le récit du sauvetage d'un marin tombé à la mer. La suite du manuscrit se compose de différentes entrées, certainement rédigées selon les besoins de l'officier. Il aborde des points de tactique et d'artillerie navale, comme: "Exercice du canon des deux bords par le Général Duperré" (Guy-Victor Duperré (1775-1846) était à l'époque préfet maritime à Brest), "Formation d'un Régiment en ordre de bataillon et de la garde du drapeau", "Définition de l'étoupille", "Défiler sur l'amiral sans changer d'amure", "l'Armée en ordre de bataille, virer lof pour lof par la contremarche". Certains de ces textes sont illustrés de schémas in-texte. Des passages sont consacrés à l'administration maritime et détaillent la composition de ses différents corps: "Annales maritimes", "Direction du personnel", "Direction des ports", "Comptabilité des fonds et invalides", "Invalides", "Subsistances de la Marine", "Inspections générales", "Dépôt général des cartes et plans de la Marine", "Artillerie", "Matériel d'artillerie", "Arrondissements maritimes", "Directions forestières", "Consulats". Sont également traités des points techniques de navigation: "Virer de bord, deux ris dans les huniers", "Remarques particulières sur les appareillages", "Pour enverguer un hunier", "Pour prendre un ris à une basse voile", etc. Quelques pages sont par ailleurs couvertes de calculs de positions, et l'auteur donne des indications de navigation pour les abords du Cap Sigré près des Dardanelles, illustrés de croquis, ainsi que 11 profils de côtes dont 3 sur double page, légendés en grec. Notons par ailleurs des descriptions précises de différents types de décoration de la Légion d'honneur, des réflexions sur l'histoire universelle, etc. Quelques petites taches et feuillets blancs déchirés, mais bon exemplaire assez frais, dans sa reliure d'origine.

         Autograph letter signed to Richard Taylor

      Glasgow 1828 - Hooker, William Jackson (1785-1865). Autograph letter signed to Richard Taylor (1781-1858). 1p. plus address leaf. Glasgow, Dec. 26, 1828. 206 x 128 mm. Some soiling, a few small marginal tears, but good to very good. From botanist William J. Hooker, the first full-time director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and author of over two dozen works on botany, to printer and publisher Richard Taylor, editor of the Philosophical Magazine and founder of the firm of Taylor and Francis. Hooker was appointed head of the Royal Botanic Gardens in 1841; under his leadership Kew grew from eleven acres to its present size of nearly 300 acres, and its collections vastly increased, largely due to a network of Hooker's former students who brought in specimens from around the world. At the time of this letter, Hooker was regius professor of botany at the University of Glasgow, a position he held from 1820 until his appointment to Kew Gardens two decades later. During this time Hooker published a number of important botanical works, two of which are mentioned in our letter: "I send you the continuation of Bot. Miscellany & will thank you to let me have a proof sheet, or two if you can, sent to me as soon as possible by Mr. Plante. "The rest shall follow in a government pouch, along with some more of Icones Filicum. "The paging will be carried on from No. 1." "Bot. Miscellany" refers to Botanical Miscellany, an illustrated botany magazine edited by Hooker that was issued in three volumes between 1830 and 1833. Also mentioned in this letter is Hooker's Icones Filicum, a two-volume illustrated work on ferns co-authored with R. K. Greville and published between 1829 and 1831.

         The Subaltern's Log Book.

      London: James Ridgway,, 1828. Including Anecdotes of well known Military Characters. 2 volumes, small octavo (188 x 115 mm). Contemporary tan calf, broad bands gilt to spines, large foliate tool to compartments in blind, twin brown roan labels, triple fillet frames gilt to sides enclosing a dotted roll in blind, floral cornerpieces gilt, marbled endpapers and edges. Extremities and joints rubbed, tips bumped, a few light scuffs and marks to sides, occasional foxing, small hole to vol. 2 sig. F3 costing a few letters in the running head. A very good copy. First edition of this uncommon memoir of military service, mainly in India, one copy traced at auction. The work is usually attributed to noted army chaplain and author G. R. Gleig (1796-1888), whose celebrated account of service in the Peninsular War was called The Subaltern (1825), but the narrative is incompatible with Gleig's biography and in volume 2 (page 195 et seq.) the author transcribes letters to him from his family, addressed to "William". The author was commissioned ensign shortly before Waterloo, which he did not see as he was appointed depot adjutant at the eleventh hour. After a brief posting to Ireland he sailed to Madras with his regiment to serve in the Third Anglo-Maratha War (1817-18). There is a vivid description of the Battle of Mahidpur and of various sorties against Pindari raiders, and a rich variety of detail regarding cantonment life; the first volume ends with the author marching to Ellichpur to enter the service of the Nizam of Hyderabad. He was then posted to a recruiting station back in Ireland before returning to Madras shortly before the commencement of the First Anglo-Burmese War (1824-6).

         Autograph letter signed to Richard Taylor

      1828. Lindley, John (1799-1865). Autograph letter signed to Richard Taylor (1781-1858). 4pp. N.p., December 26, 1828. 192 x 122 mm. Minor soiling but very good. From botanist John Lindley, professor of botany at London University, longtime assistant secretary at the Royal Horticultural Society, and the foremost British expert on orchids of his day. He was the author of The Genera and Species of Orchidaceous Plants (1830-40), An Introduction to the Natural System of Botany (1830), A Systematic View of the Organization, Natural Affinities and Geographical Distribution of the Whole Vegetable Kingdom (1836) and numerous other scientific and horticultural works; he also collaborated with John C. Loudon on his Encyclopaedia of Plants (1828) and edited the Botanical Register. Lindley helped to save Kew Gardens from destruction in the 1830s, co-authoring a report recommending that the gardens be brought under control of the British government. He named and described over 100 genera of orchids and other plants, and over 200 botanical species are named for him. Lindley's correspondent was printer and publisher Richard Taylor, editor of the Philosophical Magazine and founder of the firm of Taylor and Francis; he was the publisher of several of Lindley's works. Lindley's letter to Taylor discusses the possibility of "publishing a cheap work in which may be collected the various fugitive tracts upon Botany in which the present age is so fertile . . . I do not however think I shall find any bookseller willing to engage in it as it will scarcely be very profitable. But as I think it might be made to pay its expenses, I am disposed to risk something upon it myself, as it would be exceedingly useful if it could be brought out." After asking Taylor several questions relating to printing costs, Lindley concludes by saying that the proposed work "would be intended entirely for the use of scientific men & would have nothing popular or ad captandum [captivating] introduced; its sale would, I apprehend, depend upon its cheapness so that I am anxious to make it salable at the lowest possible cost to cover the risk." Lindley's proposed project apparently was not carried out, as we can find no record of such a work in OCLC or the online British Library catalogue.

         Autograph letter signed to Richard Taylor

      Glasgow, 1828. Hooker, William Jackson (1785-1865). Autograph letter signed to Richard Taylor (1781-1858). 1p. plus address leaf. Glasgow, Dec. 26, 1828. 206 x 128 mm. Some soiling, a few small marginal tears, but good to very good. From botanist William J. Hooker, the first full-time director of the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew and author of over two dozen works on botany, to printer and publisher Richard Taylor, editor of the Philosophical Magazine and founder of the firm of Taylor and Francis. Hooker was appointed head of the Royal Botanic Gardens in 1841; under his leadership Kew grew from eleven acres to its present size of nearly 300 acres, and its collections vastly increased, largely due to a network of Hooker's former students who brought in specimens from around the world. At the time of this letter, Hooker was regius professor of botany at the University of Glasgow, a position he held from 1820 until his appointment to Kew Gardens two decades later. During this time Hooker published a number of important botanical works, two of which are mentioned in our letter: "I send you the continuation of Bot. Miscellany & will thank you to let me have a proof sheet, or two if you can, sent to me as soon as possible by Mr. Plante. "The rest shall follow in a government pouch, along with some more of Icones Filicum. "The paging will be carried on from No. 1." "Bot. Miscellany" refers to Botanical Miscellany, an illustrated botany magazine edited by Hooker that was issued in three volumes between 1830 and 1833. Also mentioned in this letter is Hooker's Icones Filicum, a two-volume illustrated work on ferns co-authored with R. K. Greville and published between 1829 and 1831.

Sin marcas firmas, anotaciones ni subrayados.- // Proc.: Sin datos.- // Refs.: Poggendorf, II, c. 499.- // La publicación por Pontécoulant de su Théorie Analytique du Système du Monde se prolongó de un modo poco frecuente: los dos primeros volúmenes aparecieron en 1829, el tercero en 1834 y el cuarto en 1846, lo que se tradujo en que resulten escasas las colecciones completas de la primera edición. En 1856 se publicó una segunda edición aumentada (Paris: Mallet-Bachelier) de los dos primeros volúmenes y, aun en 1860, Pontécoulant publicó un ?suplemento al libro VII?, también Paris, Mallet-Bachelier, destinado a participar en el debate sobre la ecuación secular de la luna para el que proponía una solución analítica. Como tantos otros alumnos de la École polytechinque, Pontécoulant era un genuino ideólogo, heredero de los Lavoissier, Laplace, Destutt de Tracy, Cabanis., un partidario del método analítico que intentó llevar a su extremo de simplificación prescindiendo de los datos de observación para explicar el sistema del mundo y la dinámica planetaria. Uno de los cálculos que realizó con su depuración de ecuaciones, el realizado antes de 1829 sobre en qué fecha tendría lugar el perihelio del cometa Halley en su regreso en 1835 (vol. 2, p. 500), falló por solo dos días, siendo el resultado que más se aproximó al momento real. El primer volumen de su Théorie lo destinó a las leyes generales del equilibrio y el movimiento y al movimiento de revolución de los cuerpos celestes; el segundo, a la teoría de los cometas, al movimiento de rotación de los cuerpos celestes y a sus figuras; el tercero, a completar la teoría de la dinámica de los planetas; y, el cuarto, a una teoría analítica completa de la dinámica de la luna. Los desarrollos análiticos de Pontécoulant fueron seguidos por otros partidarios del método, como en el caso de la integración de ecuaciones del movimiento de un planeta no perturbado, que fue recogido por John Pratt para exponer la dinámica planetaria en sus exitosos The Mathematical Principles of Mechanical Philosophy, and their application to the Theory of Universal Gravitation (Cambridge, John Parker, 1836).- // (1) Como lo recogieron, por ejemplo, Elias Loomis: 'Observations on the Comet of Halley', en American Journal of Science, 30 (1836) 2: 209-221, p. 217, y John Gummere: An Elementary Treatise on Astronomy.- 3rd ed. improved.- Philadelphia: Kimber & Sharpless, 1842, p. 191.

         Carta Topografica dei Ducati di Parma Piacenza e Guastalla Levata dietro le misure trigonometriche negli anni 1821 - 1822 sotto il Governo di Sua Maestà l'Arciduchessa Maria Luigia

      Parma - Piacenza - Guastalla 1828 - Carta topografica dei Ducati di Parma, Piacenza e Guastalla eseguita sotto il governo di Sua Maestà l'Arciduchessa Maria Luigia e disegnata ed incisa in Milano nell'Istituto Geografico Militare dell'I. R. Stato Maggiore Generale Austriaco. Il titolo è riportato nell'angolo in alto a sinistra, in campo libero, ed è arricchito dalle raffigurazioni allegoriche del fiume Po', che poggia il piede su di una ricca cornucopia, il Taro e la Trebbia. Alle spalle di questi ultimi fanno da sfondo le raffigurazioni dei due rispettivi ponti, importanti opere monumentali, che furono realizzate proprio durante il governo di Maria Luigia.Questa carta murale, costituita da nove fogli ( di 440x680 mm ciascuno), rappresenta la prima opera di cartografia "moderna" costruita situando i luoghi in base alle loro distanze dalla meridiana e perpendicolare da un punto principale, che in questo caso particolare è la cupola del Duomo di Milano, mentre le posizioni geodetiche dei punti furono determinate mediante particolare triangolazione legata a quella dell'Italia Settentrionale. Lungo il lato sinistro si trova un elenco con il nome dei luoghi e rispettive "Distanze dalla Meridiana/Perpendicolare di Milano in tese di Vienna".Nell'angolo in basso a sinistra, sempre in campo libero, viene riportata la spiegazione dei segni dalla quale si comprende la profonda attenzione ad ogni particolare. Sono segnate le Rovine, Capelle, Immagini e Croci, Sorgenti di Petrolio, Miniere di Ferro e rame, Fonti Salate e Bagni di acque minerali oltre ai canonici segni convenzionali riguardanti le differenti tipologie di Centri abitati, le Strade con i punti di Posta, i confini e molto altro ancora.Nell'angolo in alto a destra sono riportate notizie relative alla topografia del territorio: Posizione geografica e confini, Clima, Superficie, Suolo, Fiumi e Torrenti ed infine Prodotti Minerali. Sempre lungo il lato destro riportate notizie riguardo alla Popolazione e Istituzioni Pubbliche oltre ad alcune notizie in merito ad Industria e Commercio. Infine nell'angolo in basso sono riassunti alcuni cenni storici suddivisi in avvenimenti Politici e Militari.L'opera è arricchita anche dalla raffigurazione topografica della Villa e Parco Ducale di Colorno e della Villa Ducale di Sala detta Casino dei Boschi. Quest'opera, eseguita alla scala di 1/86400 del naturale, si deve annoverare tra le opere monumentali eseguite durante il Governo di Maria Luigia, in quanto un'attenta gestione del territorio non poteva, ed ancora oggi, non può prescindere, da una particolareggiata e precisa rappresentazione cartografica del proprio territorio. La carta si presenta applicata su tela a stacchi e conservata nel suo astuccio originale. Ottima conservazione. mm 1320x2040

Contemporary quarter calf over mottled boards, four raised bands, gilt lettering and decoration to spines; spines slightly worn, front joint of vol. 2 splitting at head with a small section of loss, otherwise very good. [4], xv, [1]blank, 400; [4], 488 pp. Paris, Imprimerie Royale, Joseph-Touissant Reinaud's best-known work; an exhaustive catalogue of Islamic art, collected by the Duc de Blacas (1771-1839).This copy is inscribed by Reinaud to the Duc de Luynes, another famous French antiquarian. The Duke, a former member of the Conseil du Roi of Lois XVIII, was an enthusiastic collector who held a special interest in artefacts from the Arab world. His cabinet brought together works in many mediums, including coins, medals, seals, engraved stones and arms. As a supporter of French study of the Orient, the Duke would have been aware of the growing reputation of Reinaud (who was working in the department of Eastern manuscripts at the Bibliothèque Nationale) and thus tasked him with describing the collection. Reinaud excelled, proving himself especially adept at linking the names on the works to their historical and/or legendary contexts. He later fulfilled several esteemed positions, including being named president of the Asiatic Society in 1847. Provenance: The Library of the Ducs de Luynes from the Château of Dampierre.

         A Brief Account of the Execution of the Six Militia Men!!

      1828 - Philadelphia: Democratic Press, 1828. Anti-Jackson Broadside from the 1828 Presidential Race [Broadside]. [Jackson, Andrew (1767-1845)] [1828 Presidential Campaign]. A Brief Account of the Execution of the Six Militia Men!! [Philadelphia: Democratic Press, 1828]. 18-1/2" x 10 1/4" broadside with untrimmed edges, text in three columns below headline and woodcut image of six coffins. Moderate toning, light foxing and a few faint dampstains, three tiny scuffs with minor loss to text, mended on verso with archival tape. Item hinged to archival-quality cloth-covered illustration board. $2,750. * This is one of a series of broadsides attacking candidate Andrew Jackson for an incident that occurred during the War of 1812. In 1815 Jackson ordered the execution of six soldiers who tried to leave the service shortly before the conclusion of their three-month enlistment term. They were condemned as deserters and executed by firing squad in Nashville, Tennessee. Many thought execution was unfair, a classic case of a punishment that did not fit the crime. Jackson was running mainly on the strength of his war-hero resume, so broadsides such as this one were intended to undermine this reputation and to show him as a cruel individual. As we know, the strategy failed. Jackson defeated John Quincy Adams. This appears to be an unrecorded broadside. Shaw & Shoemaker records a later issue of this broadside, with the same title, entry 32473, but it is in four columns and has additional text dated 20 January 1828. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Souvenirs de l'Oberland Bernois [cover title].

      Basle, Birmann et Fils, [c. 1828]. Oblong folio (405 x 285 mm), original tinted lithographic title, stitched as issued; 16 aquatint plates after Birmann, finely printed with good tonal range and in deep black impressions; wrappers a little spotted and with light fraying to margins, apart from light marginal spotting or a few flaws, a very good copy with wide margins. Very rare first edition of this suite of Romantic views of the Bernese Oberland, masterfully drawn by the Swiss landscape artist Samuel Birmann, whose psychological difficultes, which finally led to his suicide in 1847, has occasionally been described as contributing factors to his highly Gothic Romantic views. Both KVK and OCLC locate only one set, in Lucerne, with 25 plates.
