ALEMBERT, Jean Le Rond d' (1717-1783). Lettre autographe adressée à

France

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: ALEMBERT, Jean Le Rond d' (1717-1783). Lettre autographe adressée à "Monsieur Cramer professeur de mathematiques à Geneve". Paris: 9 janvier 1750. 3 pp. in-4 (225 x 170 mm). Avec cachet de cire au chiffre. (Petit manque avec perte de quelques mots lors de l'ouverture de la lettre cachetée).SUPERBE LETTRE AUTOGRAPHE SIGNéE, D'INTéRêT SCIENTIFIQUE ET PHILOSOPHIQUE, éVOQUANT NEWTON, DIDEROT ET L'ENCYCLOPéDIE.D'Alembert s'adresse à Gabriel Cramer (1704-1752), professeur de mathématiques à Genève depuis 1734. On sait que Cramer avait rencontré d'Alembert, ainsi que Réaumur et Fontenelle, dans les salons parisiens dès 1747. Les deux hommes avaient gardé contact et d'Alembert fait part dans la présente lettre de ses différentes occupations et préoccupations: "j'ay calculé de nouveau, & plus exactement que je n'avois encore fait, l'orbite de la lune; et quoy que je ne sois pas encore au bout de mon travail, j'y suis assez avancé pour voir que rien n'est plus délicat & plus glissant que ce Problème. Je crois pourtant pouvoir vous assurer que Newton en sortira à son honneur". Puis il évoque Diderot et l'Encyclopédie, dont il fut le promoteur. "Diderot est enfin sorti de Vincennes il y a deux mois. Il est actuellement fort occupé de l'Encyclopédie, dont je compte que nous allons enfin donner le prospectus [...] je crois que j'en feray la préface." Sa lettre mêle alors les réflexions philosophiques et religieuses en abordant la question posée pour le prix de morale par l'académie de Berlin, "comme tout est lié dans l'ordre de la providence, nous ne devons jamais regarder les evenemens heureux ou malheureux comme isolés, mais comme servant à un tout, & entrant dans le plan general de la sagesse divine; en conséquence de cette consideration à quels devoirs sommes nous obligés envers cette sagesse". Sur cette question, qui paraît fournir selon d'Alembert "un très bon sermon, mais non une dissertation philosophique", il conclut sur ses dernières lectures philosophiques et cite des ouvrages de Rameau et de Maupertuis.

LETTER FROM MEIR DIZENGOFF TO PROFESSOR NATHAN FEINBERG

by Jerusalem of Gold Ltd.

December 9, 2014

Jerusalem, Israel

Description: A letter from Meir Dizengoff to his friend Nathan Feinberg, a member of the Association for the League of Nations. In the letter from 7.10.1927, Dizengoff and his secretary thank Feinberg for the books he had sent them for the association. They also fill him in about certain public meetings that the representative of the association, Dr. Zion Mosinzon (the principal of the gymnasium in Jaffa - later Herzliya Gymnasium) will not be able to attend for unexpected reasons. In addition, Dizengoff and his secretary ask Feinberg to purchase a list of books (attached to the letter) for the library they are intending to establish. Meir Dizengoff (1861-1936). In his youth, he was a member of the 'Hovevei Zion' association and established a branch of the association in Chisinau. He immigrated to Israel in 1892. A year later, he left for Egypt and then returned to Odessa. All the while, he continued his activity in 'Hovevei Zion' and participated in the Zionist Congresses. In 1905, he again immigrated to Israel and lived in Jaffa. In 1911, five years after the foundation of the 'Achuzat Bayit' Association for building the first Hebrew city, Dizengoff was chosen as the head of the committee and served in this role until 1922. When Tel-Aviv received the status of a city, he was chosen to be its first mayor and served in this role almost consecutively until his death in 1933. Professor Nathan Feinberg was born in Kaunas in 1895 and was accredited doctor of law in 1918. He served as the secretary of the Committee of Jewish Delegations in Paris and with the initiative of the Committee founded Jewish associations for the League of Nations. In 1924, he immigrated to Israel. He passed the test for foreign lawyers and worked in the State Attorney until 1927. In 1928, he travelled to Geneva is Switzerland to study international law (at the same time, he received the letter before us). For three years starting in 1930, he served as the representative of the Jewish Delegations Committee before the League of Nations regarding the protection of the rights of the Jewish minority in the States established or expanded according to peace contracts and obligated themselves to acknowledge the rights of the minorities in their territory. At the end of 1933, he returned to Israel and continued his work in the State Attorney and in public activity. Several years later, he was nominated the dean of the Faculty of Law of the Hebrew University. The letter was typewritten and Dizengoff and his secretary hand-signed it. At the margins, the secretary added a hand-written note with several requests from Feinberg. Very good condition.

DARWIN, Charles (1809-1882).  For Private Distribution ... Extracts from Letters addressed to Professor Henslow by C. Darwin, Esq.  Cambridge: [the University Press for the Cambridge Philosophical Society], Dec. 1, 1835.

Description: DARWIN, Charles (1809-1882). For Private Distribution ... Extracts from Letters addressed to Professor Henslow by C. Darwin, Esq. Cambridge: [the University Press for the Cambridge Philosophical Society], Dec. 1, 1835.8o (218 x 140 mm). Collation: A-B8. 32pp. Contents: [p. 1 (title), p. 2 (blank) p. 3], pp. 4-31, [p. 32 (blank)]. Disbound (remains of original paper wrappers to spine); modern quarter maroon morocco clamshell box. Provenance: Ashmolean Society (presentation inscription on the first page of text from Professor John Stevens Henslow).FIRST EDITION AND THE ONLY KNOWN PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED BY HENSLOW above the title: "Ashmolean society from Professor Henslow."DARWIN'S FIRST SEPARATELY PRINTED WORK AND OF THE GREATEST RARITY. This unauthorized pamphlet contains extracts from ten letters written by Darwin to John Stevens Henslow (1796-1861) during his five-year voyage on the Beagle. Henslow, the charismatic and well-connected Regis Professor of Botany at Cambridge, was Darwin's close friend and first mentor in natural history and responsible for obtaining for Darwin his position as ship's naturalist aboard the Beagle. Henslow had this pamphlet printed without Darwin's knowledge for distribution amongst the members of the Cambridge Philosophical Society "in consequence of the interest which has been excited by some of the Geological notices which they contain, and which were read at a Meeting of the Society on the 16th of November 1835" (p. [1])., an act which secured Darwin's reputation with the scientific community even before his return to England in October, 1836. Upon learning of this pamphlet's publication Darwin was "a good deal horrified" at Henslow making public "what had been written without care or accuracy" (Barlow, ed., Charles Darwin and the Voyage of the Beagle, pp. 140-42). However their friendship survived and at the end of his life Darwin acknowledged his friendship as the most important "circumstance" of his life. EXCEPTIONALLY RARE: according to American Book Prices Current only three copies have appeared at auction since 1975. No presentation copies, by Darwin or Henslow, are recorded. It is highly unlikely that Darwin woud have ever inscribed a copy of this unauthorized publication, making Henslow's inscription, as recipient of Darwin's correspondence, of the utmost importance.

Herbert Hoover 1934 Letter Signed Regarding FDR's Controversial Gold Policy -- ''...I would of course be greatly interested in the investigations...knowledge of late 1932 and early 1933...''

by Nate D Sanders

2014

USA

Estimated Price: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Very intriguing Herbert Hoover typed letter signed his first year out of executive office. He writes on 10 December 1934 to journalist George A. Benson in the Albee Building in Washington, DC. That building housed the National Press Club at the time. On his personal stationery, Hoover's letter reads in full: ''My dear Mr. Benson: I deeply appreciate your most kind expressions. I would of course be greatly interested in the investigations you are carrying on. The persons who know most about it are such men as James, Miller, Warburg, Tugwell, Rand, Morganthau, Ballantine, Moley, Baruch, Ben Smith, Kennedy, Professors Rogers and Warren, Vanderlip, Le Blance and others in the Committee of [for] the Nation, Senators Glass, Robinson, Thomas, and Wheeler. Their knowledge of late 1932 and early 1933 would be most valuable, if they will disclose it. Yours faithfully, [signed] Herbert Hoover''. Hoover includes an additional typed ''Memorandum'' page, continuing, ''You might look up'' and lists 11 sources for Benson's reference, including speeches made in Congress and financial editorials in the New York Times. The sources that Hoover lists concern the rush on gold by the American public, which caused a run on the banks in early March. This, in turn, led to Executive Order 6102 which prohibited the hoarding of gold and the demand for individuals to turn over their gold to the government - a policy, one might imagine, that generated quite a bit of controversy. 7.25'' x 10.5'' letter and 8.5'' x 11'' enclosure are in near fine condition. Accompanying envelope, postmarked Palo Alto, Calif., on 10 December 1934, is in good condition.

Description: GÖDEL, Kurt. Autograph letter signed in German to Thoralf Skolem ("Sehr geehrter Herr Professor"). Vienna, November 1, 1931; boxed. 2 1/2 pages, on single folded sheet. Provenance: Given by Skolem to the mathematician Ernst Straus (1922-83), who co-authored papers with Einstein, and was also a friend and collaborator of the mathematician Paul Erdös (1913-96)."Thank you very much for your friendly card and the offprints of your papers. I am concurrently sending you reprints of my two essays regarding the fundamentals; several passages therein relate to the results that you obtained. For example, my paper entitled "Formally unsolvable theorems" also provides a contribution to the set-theoretical relativism held by you. This is because, as shown by a simple calculation*, the consistent, but not ω-consistent systems examined on page 190 indicate that there exist realizations for axiom systems in set theory in which certain quantities that are infinite from an absolute standpoint are "finite" within the system. In other words, that which you showed for the term "uncountable quantity" also holds true for the term "finite quantity," namely that it cannot be axiomatically characterized (expressed by a number). Since you made a suggestion in your paper "On several set functions in arithmetic" which points in this direction, I think you will find this particularly interesting."An historic autograph letter written shortly after Gödel's publication of his paper on "Formally unsolvable theorems" to the Scandinavian logician Thoralf Skolem in which Gödel discusses logical concepts set forth in his celebrated paper, "Über formal unentscheidbare Sätze der Principia mathematica und verwandter Systeme I" (Monatshefte füür Mathematik und Physik 38 [1931]: 173-98). This work permanently altered the foundations of logic and mathematics. Addressing himself in this paper to the first two of David Hilbert's three questions about mathematics posed in 1928, Gödel came up with his two famous theorems establishing the incompleteness and inconsistency of arithmetic, and by extension any formal mathematical system rich enough to include the theory of numbers. At the time our bibliography was written, this was the only recorded letter between Gödel and Skolem. The letter is of special significance because Gödel carefully followed Skolem's work and applied it in some instances. The letter will appear in a forthcoming volume of Gödel's Collected Works (1986- ), edited by Solomon Feferman. Autograph letters by Gödel are unusually scarce. OOC 306.

Reserves' took so distinguished a part. The book had an unexpectedly rapid sale & as Hon. E. Everett saw proper to speak of it favorably in his great oration of last Thursday, the edition of 10,000 which have been printed will likely all be sold...Will you...favor me with such facts...& permit me to use your expressed opinion in regard to the merits of the work...". At the time of the battle of Gettysburg, Jacobs was a 55-year-old professor of mathematics and natural philosophy at Gettysburg College.
