        De La Loi du Contraste Simultané des Couleurs, et De L'Assortemente des Objets Colorés - Atlas

      Paris: Pitois-Levrault et Cie., 1839. 40 lithographed plates, 36 in colour, some fold-out, 9 coloured paper samples. Several plates signed by Chevreul. The very scarce Atlas of figures, which relate to the text of Chevreul's pioneering work, like his discoveries concerning the chemical properties of animal fats and his invention of the stearitic candle, arose out of his responsibilities as chemist in charge of producing dyes for the Gobelin tapestry works. Although completed in manuscript by April 1835, publication was delayed because the cost of producing the coloured plates deterred prospective publishers. This book, with its English and German translations, became the most widely used colour manual of the 19th century. This delicate volume is all complete, but the covers and spine are soiled, and detached, a number of the plates have splits along the fold lines, and some have spotting. 4 copies only, noted on OCLC. Size - 285mm. x 245mm.. [13765/504]. Signed by Author. First Edition. Board Covers. Good. 285mm. x 245mm.. Book.

        Experimental Researches in Electricity. Vols I & II

      Richard and John Edward Taylor, London 1839 - FIRST EDITIONS, 1839 and 1844. 8vo;, pp. viii, 574 [2, ads], [VIII plates], [8, ads]; viii, 302, [V plates]. ASSOCIATION COPY OF FARADAY'S SEMINAL 'EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCHES', FIRST EDITION. These two volumes contain the foundational work in modern electrical theory, beginning with Faraday's paper 'On the induction of electric currents' (read Nov. 1831, published 1832). Thereafter 17 further series of experiments follow, along with 25 separate articles and notes on the topic. Together this forms the definitive account of this vital phase in Faraday's work. From the library of the physicist J.D. Cockcroft (1897–1967), winner of the Nobel Prize in 1951 for his work with Ernest Rutherford and E.T.S. Walton 'splitting the atom'. These volumes therefore bring together two of the landmarks of the history of science: Faraday's 1831 discovery of electromagnetic induction, and the splitting of the atom just over a century later, in 1932. The association is apt in other ways too: Cockcroft trained as an electrical engineer before his time at the Cavendish, and his atom-splitting experiments required the invention of a new kind of voltage multiplier (now on display in the Science Museum). References to Faraday can be found in Cockcroft's later historical essays, and he was the recipient of the Faraday Medal in 1955. Cockcroft also attended the centenary celebrations of Faraday's discovery in 1931, the year in which he commenced the crucial experiments with Walton; his purchase of these two volumes (price recorded as £20) is therefore a direct homage to his predecessor in electrical experimentation. The two volumes are in their original dark green cloth bindings; overall condition good to very good: vol. I binding neatly rebacked; library plates (Cockcroft's donation plate; two other early plates); internally very good, except for spotting to plates; vol. II binding strong, bumped at corners; Cockcroft plate inside cover; front flyleaf removed; internally clean throughout, noting only some minor spotting to the plates. Increasingly scarce. (PMM 308).

        études Géographiques et Historiques sur l'Arabie

      1839 - First separate edition. Two folding maps. 8vo. Quarter calf over marbled boards, gilt; extremities of spine a touch rubbed, some spotting to the maps, very good otherwise. 272, xxxvii, [1]blank pp. Paris, Librairie de Firmin Didot frères, The first separate edition of Jomard's contribution to Felix Mengin's Histoire Sommaire de l'Egypte. (published in 1839, Histoire Sommaire. was a continuation of Mengin's 1823 work on Muhammad Ali of Egypt). Composed of two parts, the first concerns the 'Asir region of Saudi Arabia, which is the subject of the first folding map. It provides the most detailed geographical description of the region for the period and extensive notes on the inhabitants. Jomard's focus on 'Asir is unsurprising, as the region along with Najd ?seemed destined to become hotbeds of renewed resistance to the proclaimed pan-Arab projects of the pasha of Egypt? (p.147. Bonacina, G. The Wahhabis seen through European Eyes. Brill, 2015) and was therefore a potential barrier to French colonial enterprise. The second part concerns the geography (and history) of Central Arabia more generally, as does the second folding map. The latter shows the Arabian Peninsula and moves toward a better delineation of the Gulf Coast. Rare, with no copy coming up at auction for over ten years. Provenance: The Library of the Ducs de Luynes from the Château of Dampierre. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Beskrifning om kusterne vid Östersjön samt Finska viken, hörande till Sveriges sjö-atlas. Fjerde upplagan.

      Sthlm, L. J. Hjerta, 1839. 4:o. (8),191,(1 blank,1) s. & 15 utvikbara grav. plr. Häftad i samtida glättat mörkblått opappomslag, vilket är dekorerat som den svenska flaggan både på fram- och baksidan. Gula snitt. Bakre omslaget ställvis nött. Bra inlaga, men planscherna 13-15 fuktfläckiga. Med Oskar Mörners namnteckning. Från Herrborum. Första upplagan utkom 1815 och den andra 1827. Uppgift om den tredje upplagan saknas. Översattes både till danska, tyska och engelska. Framställningen av svenska sjökort var sedan 1798 anförtrodd åt viceamiralen Gustaf af Klint (1771-1840), vars far, Erik af Klint, även han sjöofficer, under åren 1782-88 utarbetade sjökort över Östersjön, Kattegatt, Finska och Bottniska viken. Under hela sitt liv sysselsatte sig sonen Gustaf med utarbetandet av "Svensk sjö-atlas". Detta arbete består av ett 50-tal av af Klint själv upprättade och delvis graverade "allmänna kartor" i skalan 1:300000 och s.k. passkartor i skalan 1:1000000 samt s.k. kustkartor i skalan 1:200000. Förutom kartor över rikets egna farvatten omfattade det även sådana från Kattegatt till norra delen av Svarta havet. Dessutom utarbetade af Klint flera arbeten, som föreliggande verk, med beskrivningar över de karterade farvattnen, vilka utgavs separat. Julius Oscar Mörner (1816-88) ägde från 1876 Herrborum.

        Copies or Extracts of Correspondence Relative to the Affairs of British North America

      Ordered, by the House of Commons, to be Printed, London 1839 - vi, 400 p. Rebound in attractive blue cloth with leather spine label. Damp stains and ink stains along fore edges. New end papers. Rear hinge repaired. Rough edges and small tears. Intermittent stains from tucked in leaves, especially page 44-45. Spot from 186-9. Page 327 is bumped and torn about 1/2 inch in at the bottom fore-edge. This is the second and much larger volume that accompanied Lord Durham's famous Report. Much correspondence from Lord Durham who replaced Sir Francis Bond Head as Lt. Governor of Northern Canada following the 1837 Rebellion. Much on the aftermath of the rebellion & relations with the United States. It consists of 105 letters from Lord Glenelg, dated between Feb. 19, 1838 - Jan. 25, 1830 in regards to Lower Canada; 91 letters from Sir J. Colborne and the Earl of Durham, also respecting Lower Canada between Jan. 24, 1838 - Jan. 8, 1839; 22 letters from Lord Glenelg between May 22, 1836 - Feb. 2, 1839 regarding Upper Canada; 41 letters from Sir C. Arthur, between March 23, 1838 - Jan. 4, 1839, also about Upper Canada; together with documents from Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward's Island, and Newfoundland; in all, 269 despatches. Sir F. Head addressed a letter to Lord Melbourne on Feb. 13, 1839 containing objections against three paragraphs of Lord Durham's Report, headed "Proceedings of Sir Francis Head - Failure of Result aimed at by Sir Francis Head - Real Result of Sir Francis Head's Policy - Legislature does not possess sufficient popular Confidence Exasperation of the People." Head's objections were based on the following sentence in Durham's report which read: "In a number of other instances, too, the elections were carried by the unscrupulous exercise of the influence of the government." Sir Francis informed Lord Melbourne that he noticed with extreme surprise that his lordship and colleagues should have deliberately advised her Majesty to lay before both Houses of Parliament a report containing the paragraphs alluded to, when her Majesty's Government knew perfectly well that they were, and long had been, in possession of dispatches from him (Sir F. Head,) containing unanswerable evidence of the series of misstatements which these paragraphs contain. Head continued in his objection: "I conceive that Her Majesty's Government have made it unavoidably necessary that, without a moment's delay, I should vindicate myself; and I have, therefore, the honour to inform your lordship that I shall this day send to the press documents which will enable the British public to form their own judgment, not only on the policy which has been pursued by Her Majesty's Government in the British North American colonies, but on the -- recommendations which are contained in the elegantly written document which has assailed me." (The Hobart Town Courier, Friday June 28, 1839). Includes references to the 1837 Rebellion in Canada. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Writing blanks depicting "The Lord's Supper" [and] "Paul Preaching at Athens', inscribed with handwriting exercises by the same person a year apart.

      [London]: Printed and Published by J. Fairburn, Featherstone, Street City Road [and] Published Oct[obe]r 1st, 1839 by J. Fairburn, 110 Minories. Two handcoloured prints, each bordering calligraphed bible verses, name and date. The first (384 x 486 mm) shows "Paul Preaching at Athens", six smaller scenes from the Book of Acts, and a tailpiece with obelisks and palms, framing the handwritten text of Acts 17: 22-25. The other (375 x 468 mm) shows "The Lord's Supper", six smaller scenes from the Book of Luke, and a tailpiece with arks, lambs and palms, framing the handwritten text of Luke 22:14-21. Both sheets very good with some light soiling, mounted on cardstock; a 260mm closed tear through the center of the Lord's Supper sheet is neatly conserved. Two well-preserved writing blanks, each completed with bible verses by one John Fitch, the first in December 19th 1848, and the second almost exactly a year later in December 18th 1849. Fitch was presumably a schoolboy and these two handwriting exercise rather sweetly preserve his progress from one year to the next. The publisher, John Fairburn, printed and sold caricatures, popular prints, maps, light pornography, and chapbooks in Regency London. "Of Fairburn we know that there was more than one John Fairburn from the same family active in the publishing and print selling trade from about the 1790s through 1840. But there is no doubt that the John Fairburn of 110 Minories was William Hone's main rival as a radical bookseller during this period, before the great Victorian reaction, and that both publishers were part of a small London based coterie of radical Methodists and infidels that grew up around the great engravers William Hogarth, Thomas Gillray, Thomas Rowlandson, and Isaac Cruikshank, and the land reformer Thomas Spence" (Ken Giese for Between the Covers).

        Près de 450 pages manuscrites d'un voyage à travers la Russie en 1839-1840.

      - 35 lettres autographes signées et manuscrits autographes signés 444 In-4 et in-8 mai 1839 - octobre 1840 bon Très important dossier de lettres et manuscrits de Jacquelin de Maillé écrits durant son long voyage d'un an et demi à travers les pays du nord de l'Europe, la Russie tsariste, la Crimée et l'est de l'Europe. - 25 lettres à sa mère, 159 pages in-4 et in-8. Une avec adresse et marques postales. Chritiana, Réval [Tallinn, Estonie], Saint-Pétersbourg, Moscou, « Alaupka sur la côte méridionale de la Crimée », Odessa, Malte, Vienne, Csakvar, Pest [Budapest] et Vienne, mai 1839 – octobre 1840. Passionnante correspondance qui nous fait revivre les pérégrinations de Jacquelin de Maillé pendant son long voyage d'un an et demi à travers des contrées encore peu connues à l'époque. Parti de Norvège, il rejoint l'Estonie, puis traverse toute la Russie du nord au sud jusqu'aux rives de la Mer Noire, pour rejoindre l'Europe centrale. Cette relation est d'autant plus intéressante qu'elle est exactement contemporaine du voyage d'Astolphe de Custine en Russie, qui publia à son retour, La Russie en 1839, ouvrage qui eut un retentissement considérable en Europe car il y dressait un tableau de la Russie gouvernée par la peur et la violence tsariste ; Custine voyagea en effet de juin à septembre 1839 à Saint-Pétersbourg, Moscou et Nijni-Novgorod, tout comme Jacquelin de Maillé qui, au passage, l'évoque, dans sa lettre de Saint-Pétersbourg, du 12 juillet 1839. « En fait de nouvelles, nous avons ici votre ancien ami Mr de Custine [.] ». Moscou, 5 sept. 1839. « Je suis encore ici pour quatre ou cinq jours et avant d'arriver à Odessa, je resterai quelques jours chez le Cte Warongasi dans les environs de Kief. C'est un des plus riches propriétaires de la Russie et je suis heureux de voir un établissement de ce genre. Ce qui m'a fait prolonger mon séjour à Moscou c'est l'arrivée de l'Empereur. Vous savez que Moscou est la ville Russe par excellence. Le peuple ici a plus conscience de son caractère particulier. Et la présence de la personne de l'Empereur, du chef religieux au milieu de cette ville, m'a paru devoir être intéressante. Le fait est que l'enthousiasme qu'il inspire ici est immense. Vous voyez au Kremlin tout le peuple réuni et attendre paisiblement toute la journée dans l'espoir de l'apercevoir une fois. C'est le représentant de Dieu sur la terre et leur respect a quelque chose de sacré qui s'allie parfaitement bien avec leur dévotion toute de pratique et de superstitions. D'ailleurs Moscou, dit-il est sa ville de prédilection. Il doit y rester une dizaine de jours. Il revient comme vous le savez de Borodino où il y a eu de grandes manoeuvres pour l'anniversaire de la bataille appelée par nous bataille de la Moskova [.] ». - Jacquelin de Maillé.

        Narrative of the Surveying Voyages of His Majesty's Ships Adventure and Beagle, between the Years 1826 and 1836, describing their Examination of the Southern Shores of South America, and the Beagle's Circumnavigation of the Globe.

      London, Henry Colburn, 1839 - 3 vols in four (vol 2 having a separate Appendix), 8vo (235 x 145 mm), pp xxviii [iv] 1-559, 556-597 [recte 601]; xiv [ii] 694 [2]; viii 352; xiv 629 [609]–615, with 8 engraved folding maps and charts (loosely inserted in pockets at the front of each volume, as issued, the ribbon for extracting the charts still present in each pocket), 48 plates and charts, and 6 text illustrations; a very clean copy in original publisher’s cloth, spines slightly faded as often. First edition, a very attractive set, duplicate from the Bodleian Library, of the complete narrative of ‘one of the most famous scientific expeditions in history’ (DSB). The third volume comprises Darwin’s own journal of his voyage in the Beagle, which is the first issue of his first published book. Darwin’s Journal of researches, as it became known, was his first formal publication and a classic of natural history travel narrative. It was perhaps the most important scientific voyage ever undertaken, for it gave impetus and direction to all of Darwin’s later research. ‘The five years of the voyage were the most important event in Darwin’s intellectual life and in the history of biological science. Darwin sailed with no formal scientific training. He returned a hard-headed man of science, knowing the importance of evidence, almost convinced that species had not always been as they were since the creation but had undergone change. He also developed doubts of the value of the Scriptures as a trustworthy guide to the history of the earth and of man, with the result that he gradually became an agnostic. The experiences of his five years in the Beagle, how he dealt with them, and what they led to, built up into a process of epoch-making importance in the history of thought’ (Gavin de Beer in DSB). Volume I of the Narrative concerns the initial surveying expedition, 1826–30, under Philip Parker King in the Adventure, during which FitzRoy succeeded Pringle Stokes as commander of the accompanying Beagle. Volume II describes FitzRoy’s continuation and completion of the survey with the Beagle alone, ending in 1836. ‘The surveys he carried out in South American waters established FitzRoy as a first-rate hydrographer and won for him the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society (1837). Because his marine surveys were accurate to such a high degree they are still used as the foundation for a number of charts of that area’ (DSB). Provenance: Bodleian Library, Oxford, with small shelf labels on front pastedowns and discreet duplicate release stamp on blank margins of titles and two other leaves, on pastedown shelf label only in vol II; no other institutional markings. The Bodley was the first of the six legal deposit libraries in Great Britain; it would have been sent the Beagle volumes upon publication as required by law Freeman 10; Freeman Companion p 213; Norman 584 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        L'Empire Ottoman au bord du gouffre.

      - 1 lettre autographe signée 8 In-4 17/07/1839 Scarification de purification. importante déchirure (sans manque) à l'un des feuillets Longue et très intéressante lettre de Saint-Marc, vraisemblablement diplomate, sur la situation effervescente à Constantinople et dans l'Empire Ottoman après la défaite contre les troupes égyptiennes, la mort du sultan Mahmud II et l'arrivée sur le trône d'Abdul-Medjid. Saint-Marc dépeint l'état du pays, explique les visées des Russes sur l'Empire et argumente la nécessité d'une intervention des troupes françaises. «Vous pouvez finir la question égyptienne si vous voulez ; mais pour cela il ne faut pas chicaner sur la victoire d'Ibrahim. Il ne faut pas lui proposer moins que sa fortune [.]. Les propositions de la diplomatie européenne ne seront pas acceptées, elles donnent trop peu [.]. Mais cela nous arrangera-t-il ? Ainsi à vouloir contenir ce qu'on appelle les usurpations de Mehemet Ali, nous aurons la question turque, la question de l'intervention russe [.]. Mais ce qui est grave surtout et d'une gravité de tous les jours et de tous les moments, c'est l'état de ce pays-ci. Il n'y a plus rien, absolument rien. [.] A la moindre révolte de Pacha (et la révolte de la Plata n'est qu'un premier symptôme), à la moindre attaque, il faut appeler les Russes. Il n'y a pas d'autre force, à moins que vous ne veuillez être cette force étrangère dont la Turquie ne peut plus se passer. Il faut que vous preniez l'Empire ottoman sous votre tutelle. Sans cela il tombe aux mains des Russes [.]. Ma politique me laisse à peine la place de vous parler de ce pays ci, le plus beau que j'aie jamais vu. On s'y passerait bien volontiers de l'intérêt des mouvements politiques [.]. Car ce qui est de l'homme est, sauf les mosquées, fort laid et fort chétif. Mais le climat embellit et illumine tout [.]. Vous savez tous les événements d'ici ; le sultan mort, la flotte révoltée, l'armée battue. Viennent les conséquences de ces événements. C'est de cela que de s'occuper de diplomatie [.]. Tout commence et c'est le moment plus que jamais d'armer et d'augmenter le nombre de nos vaisseaux. La flotte est décidée à passer les Dardanelles au premier événement et c'est le seul parti salutaire et digne [.]». [Attributes: Signed Copy]
