Berlin, G. Reimer, 1848. 4to. In the original wrappers, no backstrip. In "Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik. Hrsg. von A.L. Crelle, 36. Band, Erstes [1] Heft". Entire issue offered. A fine and clean copy. Pp. 75-89. [Entire volume: IV, (2), 96, (2) pp.]. ¶ First printing of these two papers influential papers by Jacobi published in the epoch-making year 1848.

"In the revolutionary year of 1848 Jacobi became involved in a political discussion in the Constitutional Club. During an impromptu speech he made some imprudent remarks which brought him under fire from monarchists and republicans alike. Hardly two years before, in the dedication of volume I of his Opuscula mathematica to Friedrich Wilhelm IV, he had expressed his royalist attitude; now he had become an object of suspicion to the government. A petition of Jacobi’s to become officially associated with the University of Berlin, and thus to obtain a secure status, was denied by the ministry of education. Moreover, in June 1849 the bonus on his salary was retracted. Jacobi, who had lost his inherited fortune in a bankruptcy years before, had to give up his Berlin home. He moved into an inn and his wife and children took up residence in the small town of Gotha, where life was considerably less expensive." (DSB).
