         Nederlandsche vogelen - 250 hand-colored engravings of Sepp & Nozeman

      Sepp, C. and Nozeman, C. 1770-1829. (1829) - Rare complete set (5 volumes) of 'Nederlandsche vogelen; volgens hunne huishouding, aert, en eigenschappen beschreeven' by Jan Christiaan Sepp [volumes I-II] and Jan Christiaan Sepp and Son [volumes III-V], 1770-1829. Hand-colored engraved additional titles and 250 hand-colored engraved plates, two double-page, by and after Christiaan Sepp, his son, N. Muis (volumes I-II) and W. Hendriks (volume IV). This book was published over a period of almost sixty years. Nozeman started this enterprise; he possessed a cabinet of animals. He discusses the native birds, their nests, their habitats and their eggs. Quite a few plates show the birds with their eggs. After Nozeman died Martinus Houttuyn took over the editing of the book. When Houttuyn died in 1798 the work was continued very likely by the publishers with the assistance of C.J. Temminck, who supplied many descriptions. Each volume contains fifty hand-coloured copperplates; according to the first two volumes the drawings are due to N. Muis, whereas W. Hendriks is mentioned in the fourth volume. The price of the complete set of five volumes was fl.525.00 which makes it the most expensive book for sale in Holland at that period. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Pianta della Città di Roma con la indicazione di tutte le antichità e nuovi abbellimenti.

      Publicata a spese di Venanzio Monaldini, Libraio e Cartolaio in Piazza di Spagna No. 19,, Rome, 1829 - An early nineteenth century tourist map of Rome Engraved map, dissected and mounted on linen, folding in 32 sections. A decorative plan of Rome based on Nolli's great plan of 1748. The plan shows the city enclosed by the Aurelian Walls and, after Piranesi's invention, it is displayed as if carved onto a stone and affixed to the wall. The plan is flanked by an index of important places and by 16 vignettes showing elevations and interiors of churches and monuments, including St Peter's Basilica, the Pantheon, the Colosseum and the Pyramid of Cestius. Pietro Ruga (1772-1824) was a prominent engraver of ancient Roman architecture and Roman city plans. Venanzio Monaldini was a bookseller and publisher based in Piazza di Spagna. His work consisted of several plans of Rome in ancient and modern times printed largely for the foreign tourist.

         Plan of the City of Boston

      1829 - Copper engraving, 215 by 355 mm. In original wash colour, trimmed to the engraved border, with slight loss to the border, folded into the original gilt embossed leather cover, with embossed title 'Boston'. The plan is printed on paper watermarked 'Wilmot 1828', and has the ownership inscription in ink on verso ?Crofton Vandeleur 34th Reg't? One small closed tear to fold (27mm), otherwise very good. Boston, Charles Stimpson jr., Stimpsonwas amapseller,globeseller, bookseller and publisher active in Boston, Massachusetts,between1820and about1846.His principal publication was 'The Boston Directory', issued annually by him from 1820 to 1846, continuing the publication begun by John West in 1796, although the first directory of the city was published by John Norman in 1789. This detailed map of Bostonfirst appeared in the 1828printing of 'The Boston Directory', withthis secondstatewithStimpson'ssole imprintappearingin1829onwards,and later states issueduntilthe planwas replaced in the 1838 edition. Engravingof the planis attributed to Hazen Morse.Surprisingly, the title-page neither forthe 1828 or 1829editions does not refer tothe plan. The nineteenth century was a time of great change to the Boston peninsula, as areas of the river and harbour were reclaimed for construction. The map is among the first new plans to showthe Mill Pond asinfilled, with the street plan overlaid, a process completed in 1828, the year this plan was completed. This example of the map was sold as a separate, trimmed to the outer engraved border and folded into the original leather covers, as a pocket map. This format, which is scarcer than the 'Directory' version, is also the more desirable:the 'Directory' versions were sold uncoloured, while the pocket map versions were issued with delicate original wash colour, as here. Provenance: Crofton ThomasCroasdaile Vandeleur(ca. 1808-1876), member of the prominent Irish military family.

         Mémoire sur la Résolution des Équations numériques et sur la Théorie de l'Élimination.

      Paris: de Bure Frères, 1829. First edition, very rare, of Cauchy's important memoir on the determination of the real roots of polynomial equations. As stated in the 'Avertissement', this is a (separately-paginated) offprint from Cauchy's Exercises de Mathématiques, Quatrième Année, 1829 (journal pagination 65-128). The problem of determining the real roots of an equation was a famous one with a long history, having been considered by Descartes (who gave an upper bound for the number of real roots in his famous 'rule of signs'), Newton (who gave an upper bound for the size of any real root), Lagrange and Fourier (who gave upper bounds for the number of roots by considering the sequence of derivatives), and others, but Cauchy was the first to give a complete solution in his paper 'Memoire sur la Détermination du Nombre des Racines réelles dans les Équations algébriques', published in 1815. The method was cumbersome and impractical, however, and Cauchy returned to the problem in 1829, giving a more straightforward procedure. The first step in the new method was to find an interval in the real numbers which contains all the real roots of a given equation: this was 'Cauchy's bound'. The next step was to show how to divide this interval into a finite number of subintervals each of which contains at most one real root of the equation. By examining the changes of sign of the polynomial at the endpoints of these subintervals, it is easy to determine which subintervals do in fact contain real roots. The roots themselves can then be determined approximately with any required degree of accuracy by a repeated bisection procedure. The second step in the method required a detailed study of the symmetric functions of the roots of a given equation, and as a by-product of this study Cauchy gives in the final section of the paper a simple solution of the problem of eliminating a variable between two given equations, one which had also exercised mathematicians since the 17th century. OCLC lists copies in US at Columbia, Harvard and MIT only. No copies in auction records. We have found no records of an offprint of the 1815 paper. Born in Paris in 1789, Cauchy entered the École Polytechnique in 1805, where he studied engineering. Because of his poor health, he was advised by Lagrange and Laplace to devote himself to mathematics. In the first months of 1813, Cauchy was hoping to gain election to the 'First Class' of the Institut. "... a week before the geometry section was to submit its list of candidates, Cauchy presented a new study on the theory of equations to the First Class. Thus he artfully caught the eyes of the members of the Institut. Cauchy expected to give verbally a concise account of the contents of this paper at the First Class' meeting of May 17. But other readings filled up the meeting. In this account, which he published a few days later, Cauchy intended to pay his respects to Lagrange, 'the great geometer whose passing has saddened learned circles everywhere in Europe as much as it has saddened us', and he presented his own work as a response to a problem that Lagrange had posed in his Traite de la Resolution des Equations Numeriques de tous les Degres. "Lagrange had published that work in 1798, and in it he examined Descartes' rule on the number of positive roots of an algebraic equation. This rule had been proved by De Gua in 1748, and Lagrange's work proceeded to pose - but not solve - the more general problem of the a priori determination of the number of real roots, whether negative or positive, of an equation. While there may no doubt be that Lagrange's research was the source of Cauchy's inquiries on the subject, as Cauchy himself declared in his account, it is at best only indirectly so, for it was Poisson who had suggested this research problem to Cauchy. Moreover, nowhere else in the memoir Cauchy published on the subject two years later [the offered extract] is Lagrange mentioned. The homage Cauchy paid to Lagrange thus appears to have been rendered with an eye on the coming election to the seat that Lagrange had left vacant" (Belhoste, Augustin-Louis Cauchy: A Biography, p. 37). Cauchy was unsuccessful in the election. "He was no doubt deeply hurt by these sharp checks on his ambitions, and being only partially recovered from his illnesses, he requested a six-months' leave of absence without pay to regain his health. This sick leave was granted on June 5, 1813. However, he had to wait until mid-July to be replaced by the engineer Denoël before enjoying his leave. "Cauchy took advantage of this new sick leave to resume his research on the problem of the a priori determination of the nature and number of roots of an algebraic equation. The method he had propounded in May 1813 had, in effect, turned out to be difficult and applicable only to equations with simple roots. Thus, on October 18, 1813, he submitted a new paper to the First Class of the Institut, stating: 'Two months ago, I had the honor of submitting to the Class a method by which I could determine a priori the real roots of a given equation. The Class decided to honor it with their approval. However, although that method is capable of yielding a solution to the problem when applied to equations of any given degree, one must take account of the number of equal roots and of the multitude of special situations that are prejudicial to the results obtained. The method I propose today does not have these drawbacks. It allows us to determine the number or roots, positive and negative, in a general way and that is independent of any considerations of equal roots and of other special cases that might arise.' "Cauchy first developed his ideas in geometric terms with no 'mathematical formulation', and then proceeded to develop an 'application to analysis of the preceding discussion' ... Cauchy wrote several supplementary notes, probably during the following months; and, at last, on November 22, 1813, he submitted a new study on this subject to the First Class of the Institut. "Cauchy had now spent many months working on this problem, and although Poisson's report was favorable, the undertaking was only partially successful. To be sure, he had shown for the first time that it is always possible -- at least in theory -- to determine a priori the nature and number of roots of an algebraic equation. In practice, however, this method led to long, complicated calculations and was accordingly almost unusable" (ibid., pp. 38-9). Cauchy's long 'Memoire sur la Détermination du Nombre des Racines réelles dans les Équations algébriques' contains, as stated at the beginning of the memoir, the substance of the various studies on the real roots of equations Cauchy had submitted to the Institut during 1813. Cauchy returned to the problem of determining the real roots in the 1829 memoir. He began by establishing what has become known as 'Cauchy's bound.' Suppose we have polynomial p(x) = xm + am-1xm-1 + .... + a1x + a0, where the coefficients a0, a1, ...., am-1 are real numbers. Let M be the greatest of the positive numbers in the list ±a0, ±a1, ...., ±am-1, and let A = M + 1. Then Cauchy proves (p. 29) that all the real roots of the equation p(x) = 0 lie in the interval of real numbers between -A and A. The next step is to find a small positive number Δ such that each of the subintervals -A to -A + Δ, -A + Δ to -A + 2Δ, ...., A - Δ to A, contains at most one real root (pp. 58-59). This is the most difficult part of the proof and is based on a detailed analysis of the 'symmetric' functions of the roots, i.e. functions of the roots that are unchanged when the roots are permuted in any way. It was well known that any such function of the roots could be expressed as a function of the coefficients of the polynomial. Once this is known it is easy to find which of the subintervals actually contain a root: if the polynomial p has a different sign at the two endpoints of a given subinterval, then that subinterval contains a root; otherwise it does not. This is essentially the 'intermediate value theorem' for continuous functions which, rather curiously, Cauchy seems to regard as being self-evident in the present work, although much of his Cours d'Analyse (1821) was devoted to developing a rigorous proof. Once a root has been localized within a subinterval, Cauchy shows, by a method that was then well known, how to determine it to any desired degree of accuracy. The subinterval is divided into two equal parts at the mid-point and one examines the sign of the polynomial p at that point. This tells one which of the two new subintervals contains the root. Iterating this procedure enables one to localise the root to any degree of accuracy. The final section 8 discusses the application to elimination theory. The problem is to find the condition on the coefficients in order for that polynomials xm + am-1xm-1 + .... + a1x + a0 and xn + bn-1xn-1 + .... + b1x + b0 have a root in common (this is the result of ‘eliminating' x between the two equations). Cauchy introduces the quantity U which is the product of the mn differences between each root of the first polynomial and each root of the second. This is a symmetric function of the roots of each polynomial, and can therefore be expressed in terms of the coefficients of the two polynomials. Cauchy indicates how this is done, thus giving an explicit solution to the elimination problem. As stated in the 'Avertissement' on p. [iii], this work is an offprint from Cauchy's Exercises de Mathématiques. Early in his career as a mathematician, Cauchy found that the volume of his research output could not be accommodated in the Memoirs of the Academy (for example, his great work on complex function theory was written in 1814 but not published in the Institute's Memoirs until 1827). He therefore started to publish his work in what was essentially his own mathematical periodical, the Exercices de Mathématiques, which appeared yearly starting in 1826. This continued until 1830, when Cauchy exiled himself to Turin following the July Revolution of 1830, which replaced Charles X with the Orléans King Louis-Philippe, to whom Cauchy refused to swear allegiance.

Il décrivait les procès conduits par les tribunaux inquisitoriaux et donnait le nom des victimes, les dates et les lieux : cet ouvrage fut à l'origine de la légende noire de l'Inquisition durant tout le XIXe siècle, et devint une œuvre de propagande dans les milieux anti-cléricaux. Dans les années 1970, deux historiens britanniques, N. Cohn et R. Kieckhefer, partirent à la recherche des sources de Lamothe-Langon et découvrirent qu'elles n'avaient jamais existé.

Bis 1827 wurde die Potentialtheorie nur im Rahmen der Angewandten Mathematik diskutiert. Poisson war nun der Erste, der in obigem Artikel, nach dem Tode von Laplace, die mathematischen Konzepte auf konkrete physikalische Probleme wie die Elastizitätstheorie anwendet. Das von ihm entwickelte Prinzip beinhaltet, dass man alle Bewegungen eines elastischen Körpers auf die Bewegung der Moleküle zurückführen kann, die dann durch Differentialgleichungen beschrieben und gelöst werden können. - Der Band enthält weiter Aufsätze von Duméril, Blainville, Cauchy, Mirbel, Girard, Beudant, Fourier und Cuvier. - Vorsätze etwas leimschattig.

         Ba la Bola Señores [Colombian post-revolutionary caricature].

      1829 - Early caricature of Colombia´s post-colonial life-style; by a famous Colombian artist of the 19th century. N.d. [before 1829]. Santa Fe de Bogota. 257 mm x 153 mm. Watercolor on paper. Espinosa Prieto (1796 - 1883) was a Colombian artist, engraver and caricaturist; his careful observation of the daily life during his youth, artistic skill, keen sense of humour and irony, facilitated his renderings of the social and political reality of Colombia during the years of the Independence and formation of the new republic. His reputation swiftly grew, mainly for his caricatures portraying the most relevant and influent men of the republican elite, as well as the local costumes and way of life of the inhabitants of Bogota. Amongst his most famous portraits are those of Simon Bolivar (1828, which gained him recognition from Bolivar himself), Archbishop Mosquera, and Francisco de Santander. South American artists saw most of their production go into portraits, for the simple reason that it was the most sought-after sort of painting –and immediately paid by the people commissioning them-, this caricature, representing a curious aspect of the Bogota way of life is extremely rare. The Biblioteca Nacional de Colombia holds a considerable number of portraits, caricatures and miscellaneous works by him, none –to our knowledge- like this one. The drawing represents a game being played at a tavern or brothel; it is accomplished in striking colours, and shows men of civil stature, an army officer, and women. Provenance: ”Ce dessin m’a eté donne à Bogota, par M le Duc de Montebello, le 13 aout 1829”; the Duke of Montebello was Louis Napoleon Lannes (1801 – 1874), sent to Bogota in 1829 by King Charles X of France on a diplomatic mission attempting to convert the Liberator Simon Bolivar into King Simon I, through marriage to a French Princess.

         Mécanique Céleste. By the Marquis de la Place. Translated, with a commentary, by Nathaniel Bowditch.

      Butts, Hilliard, Gray, Little and Wilkins 1829-1832-1834-1839, Boston - First edition, the finest copy we have seen, of Bowditch?s magnificent annotated English translation of Laplace?s masterpiece, the Traité de Mécanique Céleste (1799-1825). Printed in an edition of only 250 copies at the author?s expense, Bowditch?s translation was the first significant work on physical science published in the United States. In his Traité de Mécanique Céleste, the foundation of modern theoretical astronomy, termed ?the eighteenth-century Almagest? and ?a sequel to Newton?s Principia? by Horblit, Laplace, the ?Newton of France?, codified and developed the theories and achievements of Newton, Euler, d?Alembert, and Lagrange. Bowditch undertook the translation of Laplace?s great book in order to supply steps omitted from the original text, to incorporate later results into the translation, and to give credits omitted by Laplace, almost doubling the size of the original work in the process. Although he completed the manuscript for the work in 1818, it took another decade to arrange publication. ?Bowditch?s commentary in the footnotes is an indispensable vade mecum for the study of Laplace, explaining and filling out the demonstrations, and containing a great body of historical as well as mathematical and astronomical elucidation? (DSB, under Laplace). ?Outside of France, particularly in English-speaking countries, Bowditch?s edition, rather than the original, was often the means of learning about the mechanics of the heavens? (DSB, under Bowditch). Bowditch was assisted in his translation by Benjamin Peirce (1809-80), who read the proof sheets while he was still an undergraduate at Harvard.?Laplace maintained that while all planets revolve round the sun their eccentricities and the inclinations of their orbits to each other will always remain small. He also showed that all these irregularities in movements and positions in the heavens were self-correcting, so that the whole solar system appeared to be mechanically stable. He showed that the universe was really a great self-regulating machine and the whole solar system could continue on its existing plan for an immense period of time. This was a long step forward from the Newtonian uncertainties in this respect ? Laplace also offered a brilliant explanation of the secular inequalities of the mean motion of the moon about the earth ? a problem which Euler and Lagrange had failed to solve ? He also investigated the theory of the tides and calculated from them the mass of the moon? (PMM).Volumes 1 and 2 of Laplace?s Traité constitute a general theoretical basis for mathematical astronomy. Volume 1 comprises Book I, ?On the general laws of equilibrium and motion? and Book II, ?On the law of universal gravitation, and the motions of the centres of gravity of the heavenly bodies?; Volume 2, in three books, treats the shapes of celestial bodies and their motion around their centres of gravity, and the tides. Volume 3, in two books, deals with the theory of the Moon, and Volume 4 treats the motion of the moons of Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus, and the theory of comets.?By 1818 Bowditch had completed his translation of the first four volumes of the Mécanique Céleste. His purpose was threefold: to supply steps omitted from the original text; to incorporate later results into the translation; and to give credits omitted by Laplace. There is no evidence that Laplace ever responded to any communication from Bowditch, a fact sometimes ascribed to the third purpose. The four volumes appeared in 1829, 1832, 1834, and 1839, the last posthumously. The delay in publication was undoubtedly due in part to financial problems. Bowditch, who would not have people subsidize, out of regard for him or other irrelevant reasons, a book they could not read, printed the work at his own expense. It is also most likely that he continued to work over the volumes between 1818 and their appearance, particularly to bring the subject matter up to date. The fifth volume of the Mécanique Céleste appeared to

         Instruction pour les voyageurs et pour les employés dans les colonies, sur la manière de recueillir, de conserver et d'envoyer les objets d'histoire naturelle

      1829 - 66 pages (exemplaire Paris, imprimerie de A. Belin, 1829, in-8, 66 pages (exemplaire interfolié), broché, couverture d'attente rose de l'époque, Nouvelle édition, prétendument la troisième, de cette brochure incontournable, "rédigée (.) par l'administration du Muséum d'histoire naturelle", rééditée de nombreuses fois et constamment modifiée depuis sa première parution, en 1818 : il y a eu une seconde édition en 1824, puis une troisième en 1827, ce qui fait que celle-ci, publiée en 1829, est en fait la quatrième. L'auteur probable de la première édition est le botaniste André Thouin (1747-1824), professeur de culture au Jardin des Plantes. Entre 1818 et 1829, la plus grande partie de l'ouvrage reste identique. L'Instruction se divise en trois parties, correspondant aux trois règnes de la nature d'après Linné : l'animal, le végétal et le minéral. En sa qualité de premier jardinier du Jardin des plantes, Thouin s'est amplement préoccupé des questions de récolte, conservation et transport des espèces provenant des pays lointains : dès 1785, il recommandait à La Pérouse d'embarquer le jardinier Jean Nicolas Collignon pour son expédition et fournissait à ce dernier, pour l'accomplissement de sa mission, un Mémoire pour diriger le Jardinier dans les travaux de son voyage autour du monde, qui sera publié au sein du premier tome du Voyage de La Pérouse autour du monde (Imprimerie de la République, 1797, p. 205 et suiv.). Thouin y donnait des conseils sur la meilleure façon de multiplier les graines et boutures de végétaux comestibles emportées de France et, contre service rendu, recommandait de récolter, dans les pays visités, les végétaux eux-mêmes utiles à l'Europe, en instruisant sur la manière de les conserver pendant le voyage. Le propos de Thouin était ainsi de procurer au Jardin des Plantes toutes les espèces de végétaux qui n'avaient pas encore été trouvées. Les présentes Instructions sont faites d'après ce modèle. Elles répondent à une volonté du Muséum d'encourager des personnes qui n'avaient pas de formation en histoire naturelle - chefs de colonies et commandants de vaisseaux d'état en particulier - de participer à l'enrichissement de ses collections. La brochure devint une référence incontestable, en témoignent ses multiples éditions (outre celles que nous mentionnons plus haut, une 5e et une 6 édition parues en 1845 et 1860). L'exemplaire-ci présente la particularité d'être entièrement interfolié et abondamment annoté à l'encre brune pour la partie botanique. Ces annotations sont attribuables au père de la paléobotanique Adolphe Brongniart : la présence d'un cachet "C. Brongniart" (Charles Brongniart ?), qui rattache l'exemplaire à un membre de cette illustre famille de savants, la comparaison graphologique probante et surtout le contenu des notes, portant sur la botanique et sur la manière de récolter les espèces, sont autant d'indications qui soutiennent cette attribution : Adolphe Brongniart (1801-1876) s'était déjà chargé, avec Jean-Baptiste Bory de Saint-Vincent, de l'étude des spécimens récoltés durant l'expédition de Duperrey sur la Coquille entre 1822 et 1825 (nulle trace de la présence des deux savants à bord de la gabarre-écurie, leur participation semble s'être bornée au dépouillement des plantes rapportées) et de la publication du compte-rendu botanique (Voyage autour du monde, 1826-1829). Brongniart avait à coeur que les récoltes effectuées sur le terrain le soient dans les meilleures conditions : ainsi recommandait-il le 20 décembre 1836 au capitaine de vaisseau Dupetit-Thouars, dans une lettre récemment passée en vente publique (Ader, 14 avril 2015), de prendre soin des collections botaniques. Le style de cette lettre et le contenu évoquent très nettement les instructions qui figurent dans notre brochure et dans ses annotations. 2 cachets ex-libris : l'un de "C. Brongniart" (sans doute l'entomologiste et paléontologiste Charles Brongniart, petit-fils d'Adophe Brongniart et arrière petit fils d'Alexandre Bro [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Scelta di lettere edificanti scritte dalle Missioni straniere preceduta da quadri geographici storici, politici, religiosi e letterari dei paesi di missione..

      Milan: Ranieri Fanfani, 1829. Occasional foxing, some wear and a little loss affecting the wrappers.. Eighteen small quarto volumes, with a total of 101 handcoloured plates and seven maps; an excellent set as issued in the publisher's tinted wrappers. Scarce in original condition: a record of Catholic missionary activity across the globe from the seventeenth to nineteenth centuries, forming a curious and at sometimes intimate ethnological portrayal of native peoples encountered. Taking the form of collected letters and despatches (with numerous maps and over 100 plates in total), this set is noteworthy for its visual depiction of the indigenous peoples of the Americas. Four volumes specifically concern the cultures of North and South America: the first is entirely devoted to Canada, while the remaining three contain discrete sections on Louisiana, California, San Domingo, Guiana, Peru, Chile and Paraguay. In addition to the missionary correspondence, each section includes description of the culture, history and geography of each region. In total the four American volumes contain 22 plates and two folding maps.Likewise, China is generously examined over the first five volumes, and many fascinating Jesuit despatches from the Imperial Court are here offered to the public gaze. Throughout the late-seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, Jesuit scholars enjoyed favour with the Emperor and his Court, and were especially admired for their prowess in astronomy and mathematics. The five volumes concerning China contain a total of 29 plates and a detailed map.Remaining regions revealed include 'the Levant' - here used in an expanded sense to encompass the vast geography of North Africa, the Middle East and Persia. One discrete volume concerns the kingdoms of Southeast Asia including Tonkin and Siam, while the final four volumes are devoted to the Catholic Missions of India.
