[economics] babbage, charles (1791-1871)
On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures.

London: Charles Knight, 1732.

First edition, octavo, regular paper issue; engraved title with profile portrait of Roger Bacon (dampstain to lower margin); bound in full original publisher’s moiré-textured brown cloth boards, rebacked, 6 3/4 x 4 1/4 in.

Babbage, with his invention of the Difference Engine, a mechanical calculator designed to tabulate polynomial functions, is considered the father of modern computing. Babbage’s Engine would be operated by turning a crank, which would turn a series of geared brass number wheels whose increments are dictated by the metric system, thus performing a series of calculations. One full turn of the handle accomplishes one sequence of operations. The principle at work is that of Newton’s method of divided differences. Babbage did not create a working version during his lifetime, but it was successfully constructed with minor alterations by scientists in 1991. The science fiction steampunk genre also owes a debt to Babbage. Had his machine caught on in the early 19th century, one may imagine the Victorians fitted out with a panoply of sophisticated high tech gear and inventions.

[economics] bentham, jeremy (1748-1832)
The Book of Fallacies: from Unfinished Papers.

London: Published by John & H.L. Hunt, 1824.

First edition, octavo, 411 pages; bound in full contemporary gilt-ruled calf, gilt-tooled spine with label, joints rubbed, contents with some light spotting, generally good; ex libris international lawyer and advisor to the British delegations on the Reparations Commission established by the Treaty of Versailles Sir John Fischer Williams (1870-1947) with his bookplate on ffep, 8 1/2 x 5 1/4 in.

Bentham targeted political fallacies in this work. His attack on the action of the despot in government is strongly worded. The chapter headings speak for themselves: Vituperative Personalities (ad odium); Hobgoblin Argument, or, ‘No Innovation!’; Official Malefactor’s Screen, ‘Attack us, you attack Government,’; Accusation-scarer’s Device, ‘Infamy must attach somewhere,’ Impostor Terms, Vague Generalities, and Fallacy of Artful Diversion. These are just a sample.
