About this Item: Paris De k'Imprimerie Royale, 1785. "The First Large-Scale Attempt to Apply Mathematics to Knowledge of Human Phenomena" CONDORCET, [Marie Jean Antoine Nicolas Caritat], Marquis de. Essai sur l’application de l’analyse à la probabilité des décisions rendues à la pluralité des voix. Paris: De l’Imprimerie Royale, 1785. First edition.Quarto. [2], cxci, [1, blank], 304 pp. Decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces. Contemporary French mottled calf, spine decorated in gilt with five raised bands. Marbled endpapers, all edges red. First and last few pages browned at edges, . gathering K is browned a Q and 2G is toned. Otherwise, very good and very scarce. "Condorcet’s most significant and fruitful endeavor was in a field entirely new at the time. The subject was one that departed from the natural sciences and mathematics but nevertheless showed the way toward a scientific comprehension of human phenomena, taking the empirical approach of natural science as its inspiration and employing mathematics as its tool. Condorcet called this new science ‘social mathematics.’ It was apparently intended to comprise.a statistical description of society, a theory of political economy inspired by the Physiocrats, and a combinatorial theory of intellectual processes. The great work on the voting process, published in 1785, is related to the latter. Condorcet there sought to construct a scheme for an electoral body the purpose of which would be to determine the truth about a given subject by the process of voting and in which each elector would have the same chance of voicing the truth.No doubt the results obtained in the Essai d’application de l’analyse were modest ones. ‘In almost all cases,’ Condorcet said, ‘the results are in conformity with what simple reason would have dictated; but it is so easy to obscure reason by sophistry and vain subtleties that I should feel rewarded if I had only founded a single useful truth on a mathematical demonstration’ (Essai, p. ii). One must nevertheless recognize, in this work.the first large-scale attempt to apply mathematics to knowledge of human phenomena" (D.S.B.). Brunet VI, col. 472. HBS 66958. $7,500.

About this Item: Paris, Agasse, l'an III de la République, une et indivisible (1795). 8vo. Bound in a very nice newer pastiche-binding in full mottled calf. Five raised bands and gilt title-label to spine. A very nice, clean, fresh, and attractive copy. VIII, 389 pp. The rare first edition of Condorcet's main work, "the most fully developed exposition of the progress of man" (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 149) and a main work of the Enlightenment as well as of historical thought in general. The author was the creator of what came to found the basis for the modern French system. The great French philosopher, political thinker and mathematician, M.J.A. Condorcet (1743 - 1794), played a seminal role in 18th century France. He was friends with the likes of d'Alembert, Voltaire, Turgot etc., and he greatly contributed to the social and political debates of politically turbulent France. As one of the few, he advocated a liberal economy, equality in public education as well as in gender and race etc. He preached constitutionalism, and his thoughts that are still influential today embody those of the Enlightenment and rationalism."A belief in the ultimate perfectibility of man lies at the root of all progressive thinking about the human condition. The "philosophes" and Godwin had familiarized the reading public with this notion; it was left to Condorcet to give it its finest and most durable expression. It was the gospel of nineteenth century that mankind is destined for indefinite future progress. Condorcet, looking back and then forward, saw proof of this in the growing equality between classes and nations, the intellectual, physical and moral improvement of man; and he prophesied that popular education on correct principles would strengthen and assure this progress." (PMM 246).During the French Revolution Condorcet came to play a dominating role, advocating a rationalist reconstruction of society, and he championed many liberal causes. In 1791 he became secretary of the Legislation Assembly, and the institution adopted his scheme for comprehensive state education, which later became the basis of the modern French system. In the struggle between the two political parties, the Girondists and the Montagnards, Condorcet occupied an independent role, but when he opposed the death penalty under the trial of King Louis XVI (still supporting the actual trial), and the radical Montagnards gained more power, Condorcet was branded a traitor, and in October 1793 a warrant was issued for his arrest. He now went into hiding for several months (almost a year), and it is during these months that he writes the work that was to become his most important, the main work "Esquisse." ("Sketch for a Historical Picture of the Progress of the Human Mind"), which was published posthumously, the year after his death. In 1794 Condorcet was arrested, and two days later he was found dead in his cell, -it is unknown whether he committed suicide or was murdered because of fear of fierce reactions that would definitely have occurred had the beloved man been officially sentenced to the death penalty."In the Esquisse", published after his death, Condorcet traces the history of man through epochs, the first three covering his progress from savagery to pastoral community and thence to the agricultural state. The next five span the growth of civilizations and knowledge down to Descartes, and the ninth describes the revolution of Condorcet's own lifetime, from Newton to Rousseau. The prophetic view of the tenth epoch shows Condorcet at his most original. He forecasts the destruction of inequality between nation and classes, and the improvement, intellectual, moral and physical, of human nature., it exercised considerable influence on Comte. But it is as the most fully developed exposition of the progress of man that Condorcet's work is now remembered, and it is this which has given it its lasting appeal." (PMM 246).

Unlike Godwin, he does not preach absolute equality, but equality of opportunity" (PMM). "The aim of the Esquisse was to demonstrate man's progressive emancipation, first from the arbitrary domination of his physical environment and then from the historical bondage of his own making" (Encyclopedia of Philosophy II, 184). By linking the question of human progress with that of population, Condorcet also anticipated the work of Malthus (see Spengler, French Predecessors of Malthus).

About this Item: Paris: de l’ Impremerie de Didot, 1765, 1765. 8 Blatt, 92 Seiten. Marmorierter Pappband 16 x 21 cm Sein erstes Werk. Einzige Ausgabe, sehr selten. Marie Jean Antoine Nicolas Caritat, Marquis de Condorcet (1743-1794) war ein französischer Philosoph, Politiker und Mathematiker der Aufklärung. Er trat 1790, kurz nach der Verkündung der Menschenrechte und der Bürgerrechte, vehement dafür ein, diese auch den Frauen zu gewähren. In seinem am 3. Juli 1790 veröffentlichten Essay Sur l'admission des femmes au droit de cité sprach er sich für die Einführung des Frauenwahlrechts aus. Darüber hinaus trat er für die Gleichberechtigung von schwarzen Menschen verbunden mit der Abschaffung der Sklaverei und für den Freihandel ein. Condorcet erhielt zunächst eine Ausbildung am Jesuitenkolleg in Reims und am Cllege Mazarin in Paris. 1765 veröffentlichte Condorcet die Arbeit Essai sur le calcul intégral. In dieser Schaffensphase publizierte er mehrere wichtige mathematische Arbeiten, so 1772 eine weitere zur Integralrechnung. Im selben Jahr lernte Condorcet den französischen Ökonomen Turgot kennen, der ihn zwei Jahre später (1774) unter Ludwig XV. zum Generalinspekteur der staatlichen Münze ernannte. Diese Stellung bekleidete er bis 1791, jedoch nach der Entlassung Turgots im Jahre 1776 eher widerwillig. Seine wichtigsten wissenschaftlichen Beiträge waren seine Arbeiten zur Wahrscheinlichkeitsrechnung und zur mathematischen Philosophie, ferner zur Analysis und zum Dreikörperproblem (1768). Entscheidend für die Entwicklung der Wahrscheinlichkeitstheorie war seine 1785 veröffentlichte Abhandlung Essai sur l'application de l'analyse à la probabilité des décisions rendues à la pluralité des voix. Condorcet entwickelte die Condorcet-Methode (zur Durchführung und Auswertung von Wahlen von einem unter mehreren Kandidaten). Er ist bekannt für das Condorcet-Paradoxon, wonach es möglich ist, dass eine Mehrheit die Option A gegenüber einer Option B bevorzugt, zugleich eine Mehrheit die Option B gegenüber einer Option C bevorzugt und dennoch eine Mehrheit die Option C gegenüber der Option A bevorzugt. (siehe wikipedia). Durchgehend stärker fleckig. Seller Inventory # 20047

About this Item: Paris : Chez Grangé, 1775. Couverture rigide. Condition: Très bon. Edition originale. In-8° relié plein chagrin moderne bleu nuit, titre gravé dos à quatre nerfs, 1 page de titre n. ch., 92 pages. Édition originale d'un classique de l'économie politique rarissime plus connu dans son tirage de 1776 avec un titre léger différent "Réflexions sur le commerce des bleds" Londres [Genève], 1776. Ce texte est la réponse de Condorcet aux idées de Necker sur le commerce des grains. L'ouvrage de Necker, Sur la législation et le commerce des grains, parut à Paris en 1775 [Higgs, 6260], réfutait la liberté de la circulation des blés. Ce débat autour du commerce des grains intervint au moment de la "Guerre des farines", conséquence de la misère et de la flambée des prix. La première émeute eut lieu le 27 avril 1775 sur le marché de Beaumont-sur-Oise : devant le refus des magistrats de réduire le prix du pain, la foule chercha à forcer les marchands à vendre leur farine à prix réduit. Condorcet se joignit à Turgot pour soutenir la libéralisation du commerce des blés, s'attaquant à l'ouvrage de Necker qu'il qualifait de "plaidoyer éloquent pour les intérêts des riches contre les pauvres, destinés à sanctifier le statu quo en l'érigeant en necessité sociale" (Baker, Condorcet, raison et politique, 1988, p. 85). Magnifique exemplaire en parfait état. Seller Inventory # 13000

About this Item: Chez Froullé, libraire, quai des Augustins, Paris, 1788. First edition. First edition. (4), xvi, 383, (1); (4), 259, (1); (4), 292; (4), 366 pp. 4 vols. 8vo. Mazzei emigrated to America from Italy in 1773 and introduced the cultivation of grapes and olives to the United States. He became a neighbor of Jefferson in Virginia, settling near Monticello at Jefferson's request, and this association led to their long friendship and the author's acquaintance with Franklin and Adams. A staunch Republican, Mazzei took an active role in the Independence movement. In this work he outlines the history of the American colonies, the causes of the Revolution, and the economy and government of the United States. Also discussed are Indians, slavery, emigration, and the Society of the Cincinnati. The book was a contemporary success and remains an important work which Malone characterizes as "probably the most reliable of all the works of the period on the United States" (Thomas Jefferson 2:109-110). Jefferson aided Mazzei in the compilation of the work while acting as American minister in Paris.

About this Item: A Paris, De l'Imprimerie de Ph.-D. Pierres, s.d., in-8, 41 pp., dérelié. Première édition de ce texte de science politique capital et pourtant peu connu. Dans la droite filiation de Turgot et de son Mémoire sur les municipalités, Condorcet établit un modèle démocratique : "La durée de toute loi constitutionelle a donc pour véritable limite le tems nécessaire pour la moitié des citoyens existans au moment de l'acceptation de la loi ait été remplacée par de nouveaux citoyens" (page 4). La notion de durée est essentielle dans ce texte ou le mathématicien et le théoricien politique ne font qu'un ; cette notion assure la protection du système démocratique en évitant qu'une assemblée permanente confisque le pouvoir, à l'image de la royauté. Des régles doivent organiser ce système démocratique. Il en donne le schéma. M. & W., 8109. Le texte n'est pas cité par Baker (Condorcet, 1988), ni même par E. et R. Badinter (Condorcet, 1988).

(Mayr, The Growth of Biological Thought. p 330) Buffon's work was based on the methods of observation and experimentation. He raised many of the fundamental problems of biology in a scientific context. One of Buffon?????s most important contributions was the popularization of the old earth theory, in opposition to Archbishop Ussher?????s biblical earth time-line. Buffon was an important pre-cursor to Darwin. Cited as the father of biogeography, Buffon's Law postulated that creatures "improved" and "degenerated" after dispersing from a center of creation. He based his theory on comparative anatomy studies. Buffon tried to explain the origin of living things by spontaneous generation of elementary particles and its development as a consequence of climate and diet. Buffon argued that all members of a family of species descended from the same ancestors, a "unity of type".

Second edition, 8vo, pp. viii, 389; contemporary full calf, black morocco label on gilt-decorated spine; front joint cracked, binding rubbed and scuffed; a good copy. See PMM 246: "It was the gospel of the nineteenth century that mankind is destined for indefinite future progress. Condorcet [1743-1794], looking back and then forward, saw proof of this in the growing equality between classes and nations, the intellectual, physical and moral improvement of man; and he prophesied that popular education on correct principles would strengthen and assure this progress. In the Esquisse [An Historical Outline of the Progress of the Human Mind], published after his death, Condorcet traces the history of man through epochs, the first three covering his progress from savagery to pastoral community and thence to the agricultural state. The next five span the growth of civilizations and knowledge down to Descartes, and the ninth describes the revolution of Condorcet's own lifetime, from Newton to Rousseau. The prophetic view of the tenth epoch shows Condorcet at his most original. He forecasts the destruction of inequality between nations and classes, and the improvement, intellectual, moral and physical of human nature it is as the most fully developed exposition of the progress of man that Condorcet's work is now remembered, and it is this which has given its lasting appeal.".

About this Item: London: 1786, 1786. Octavo (205 x 122 mm). Early 19th-century quarter marbled calf, red label to smooth spine with compartments ruled in gilt, marbled sides, speckled edges. Condorcet's name added to title page in contemporary hand. Front cover lightly marked, tiny chip at base of title page, a few small blemishes to contents. An excellent copy. Portrait frontispiece of Turgot. One of four editions of Condorcet's life of Turgot which were printed in 1786, all bearing London imprints but all probably printed on the continent, without known priority (ESTC). Condorcet was a strong supporter of Turgot, who had attempted to implement physiocratic ideas as the French finance minister from 1774 to 1776. His biography seeks to vindicate Turgot's thought and work, and is a powerful defence of Enlightenment economic ideas. ESTC T177159. Seller Inventory # 124115

About this Item: København, Tikiøbs Forlag, 1797. Lille 8vo. Samtidigt helldrbd. med rig rygforgyldning og forgyldt skindtitel. XII,(4),368 pp. Indvendig ren, trykt på skrivepapir. The extremely rare first Danish edition of Condorcet's main work "Esquisse d'un tableau historique des progrès de l'esprit humain.1795", "the most fully developed exposition of the progress of man" (Printing and the Mind of Man, p. 149) and a main work of the Enlightenment as well as of historical thought in general. The author was the creator of what came to found the basis for the modern French system. The great French philosopher, political thinker and mathematician, M.J.A. Condorcet (1743 - 1794), played a seminal role in 18th century France. He was friends with the likes of d'Alembert, Voltaire, Turgot etc., and he greatly contributed to the social and political debates of politically turbulent France. As one of the few, he advocated a liberal economy, equality in public education as well as in gender and race etc. He preached constitutionalism, and his thoughts that are still influential today embody those of the Enlightenment and rationalism."A belief in the ultimate perfectibility of man lies at the root of all progressive thinking about the human condition. The "philosophes" and Godwin had familiarized the reading public with this notion; it was left to Condorcet to give it its finest and most durable expression. It was the gospel of nineteenth century that mankind is destined for indefinite future progress. Condorcet, looking back and then forward, saw proof of this in the growing equality between classes and nations, the intellectual, physical and moral improvement of man; and he prophesied that popular education on correct principles would strengthen and assure this progress." (PMM 246).During the French Revolution Condorcet came to play a dominating role, advocating a rationalist reconstruction of society, and he championed many liberal causes. In 1791 he became secretary of the Legislation Assembly, and the institution adopted his scheme for comprehensive state education, which later became the basis of the modern French system. In the struggle between the two political parties, the Girondists and the Montagnards, Condorcet occupied an independent role, but when he opposed the death penalty under the trial of King Louis XVI (still supporting the actual trial), and the radical Montagnards gained more power, Condorcet was branded a traitor, and in October 1793 a warrant was issued for his arrest. He now went into hiding for several months (almost a year), and it is during these months that he writes the work that was to become his most important, the main work "Esquisse." ("Sketch for a Historical Picture of the Progress of the Human Mind"), which was published posthumously, the year after his death. In 1794 Condorcet was arrested, and two days later he was found dead in his cell, -it is unknown whether he committed suicide or was murdered because of fear of fierce reactions that would definitely have occurred had the beloved man been officially sentenced to the death penalty."In the Esquisse", published after his death, Condorcet traces the history of man through epochs, the first three covering his progress from savagery to pastoral community and thence to the agricultural state. The next five span the growth of civilizations and knowledge down to Descartes, and the ninth describes the revolution of Condorcet's own lifetime, from Newton to Rousseau. The prophetic view of the tenth epoch shows Condorcet at his most original. He forecasts the destruction of inequality between nation and classes, and the improvement, intellectual, moral and physical, of human nature., it exercised considerable influence on Comte. But it is as the most fully developed exposition of the progress of man that Condorcet's work is now remembered, and it is this which has given it its lasting appeal." (PMM 246).
