         [Das Kapital, in Russian] Kapital. Kritika politicheskoi ekonomii

      Petersburg: N. P. Poliakov,, 1872. [Translated by Lopatine and Danielson], vol. I. [all published hitherto]. Octavo (236 × 153 mm). Contemporary Russian black half calf, blue pebble-grain cloth sides, spine with double gilt rules. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Russian ownership inscription dated 1898 to front free endpaper. Joints rubbed, corners worn, two small pieces of stamp paper to half-title, an excellent copy. First edition in Russian, the first foreign translation, of "the Bible of Marxism." This is the first translation to appear in any language, and the impact of it was greatest on the history, society, government, politics, culture, and psyche of that country. The publication of the first volume of Karl Marx's Das Kapital was the result of nearly 25 years of economic studies, mostly in the Reading Room of the British Museum. His biting critique of the capitalist system had developed from his previous publication of Zur Kritik der Politischen Oekonomie (1859). "Nobody before him had so clearly shown the role of the productive agencies in historical evolution; nobody so masterfully exhibited their determining influence on the form and idealogies of social organisms… If he has been justly compared with Darwin, it is in these respects that he ranks with the great genius" (Ency. Brit.) "By an odd quirk of history the first foreign translation of Das Kapital to appear was the Russian, which Petersburgers found in their bookshops early in April 1872. Giving his imprimatur, the censor, one Skuratov, had written, 'few people in Russia will read it, and still fewer will understand it.' He was wrong; the edition of three thousand sold out quickly; and in 1880 Marx was writing to his friend F. A. Sorge that 'our success is still greater in Russia, where Kapital is read and appreciated more than anywhere else'" (PMM). The printing of a second edition was forbidden in Russia and so in 1890 a New York publisher brought out an nearly identical reprint of the first edition: that second edition is distinguished from the first in that the misplaced comma opposite "p. 73" in the table of contents is replaced by a full stop; and the "e" at the end of l. 40, p. 65, is replaced by a "c".

         ILLUSTRATED PRICE LIST OF THE LEADING STYLES OF TOILET SOAPS AND PERFUMERY MANUFACTURED BY COLGATE & COMPANY

      New York. 1872.. [33] chromolithograph leaves. Lacking titlepage. Folio. Original black publisher's cloth. Covers lightly mildewed. Titlepage has been excised. Some light scattered foxing and mildewing; occasional offsetting. Verso of first leaf pasted with contemporary newspaper clippings. Images still quite bright and lovely. Good. "Some of the most elaborate chromolithographic works were trade catalogues. The high cost of producing such material, often in full-scale books, illustrates the degree to which consumer product makers were willing to spend on advertising even in the 19th century. This handsome Colgate catalogue contains thirty- four full- page chromolithographs in glowing color by the lithographers, Mayer, Merkel & Ottmann of New York, advertising vrious toiletry articles and soaps. Such catalogues were aimed mainly at the buyers for dry goods and department stores rather than the final consumer" - Reese. Not in OCLC. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER, 98.

         Currier & Ives - FROZEN UP - 1872

      Currier & Ives, New York 1872 - id#: mbf012H Title: Currier & Ives - FROZEN UP - 1872 Author: ; Currier & Ives Size: 11x 15 in Date: 1872 Publisher: Currier & Ives medium: Hand colored lithograph Listed by Ilsoon Han condition: very good condition, no tears, very good color, slight specking and browning of margins Currier & Ives - FROZEN UP - 1872 A lithograph by Currier and Ives, publishers (American, 1857 to 1907). Frozen Up, 1872, (Conningham, 2155). Identified in inscriptions in the matrix. Small folio lithograph with hand-coloring on paper. Note: This lithograph ranks no. 18 in the "New Best 50," small folio. The publishing firm of Currier & Ives created the most popular and highly regarded lithographs of quintessentially American scenes ever produced. The quality, vast scope and engagingly populist style of their works have made their names synonymous with an idealistic vision of 19th-century American promise and optimism. Currier & Ives' broad productivity was accompanied by consistently high standards of printing and hand-coloring, and their ability to draw on original works by many of the finest American genre painters of the times, including (among many others) Fanny Palmer, Louis Maurer, Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait and George Durrie. Even (or perhaps especially) today, Currier & Ives prints are paragons of Americana. Indeed, to most Americans over forty years of age, their firm¿s name has the ring of a household word or familiar brand name, perhaps as recognizable as Proctor & Gamble or Arm & Hammer. It is a name that conjures up a particular view of America¿s past. When we speak about the art of Currier & Ives, we are talking of cultural patrimony, a vital part of this nation¿s identity, on a par with the Empire State Building, the Grand Canyon, and the Star-Spangled Banner. When Currier & Ives emerged onto the popular scene, the public¿s appetite had been whetted by what amounted to a media boom that took place in the United States during the 1840s and 1850s. The introduction of photography, more rapid methods of picture printing (including lithography), and the rise of illustrated journalism exploited, among the urban bourgeoisie of the period, a strong interest in topical information, fine art, and plain amusement. Currier & Ives produced an unprecedented inventory of titles for this audience, a move that dramatically lifted the firm above its competition, and elevated their imagery iconic status. Currier & Ives was founded in New York in 1835 by Nathaniel T. Currier, who had been apprenticed as a youth to the Boston lithographic firm of William S. & John Pendleton. In 1857, James Merritt Ives, the company's bookkeeper and Currier's brother-in-law, was made a partner. Generally, Currier supervised production while Ives handled the business and financial side. Currier & Ives prints were decorative and inexpensive, ranging in price from 20¢ to $3. Their subject matter ranged from rural life, ships, trains, animal and sporting scenes to religious images and spectacular news events. The firm produced more than 7000 titles and became the largest and most successful American lithographic publishing company of the 19th century. Vigorous marketing through published catalogues, a sales staff and agents throughout the USA, as well as in London, enabled Currier & Ives to capture approximately three-quarters of the American print market in the peak years of the firm's popularity. Both black-and-white and colored prints were sold; color was usually applied by a staff of women working in a production line from a model, although some prints were sent out for additional hand-coloring. Although many of the large number of artists employed by Currier & Ives simply copied the designs of others on to the stone, original works were also commissioned. These occasionally included pictures by well-known artists, such as Arthur Fitzwilliam Tait and George Henry Durrie, but more

         THE NEW BELFRY OF CHRIST CHURCH,

      - First Edition, pamphlet 8vo, original printed wrappers (these with slight chipping at edges), a very good copy, Oxford, Parker, 1872. WMGC, 88. Carroll's sustained satire on the architecture of the new bell-housing at Christ Church, Oxford - the most amusing of his Oxford "squibs." Though put to a local semi-political purpose, these pieces are wholly Carrollian in their use of comic word-play and surreal invention. Photograph available on request.

         The Deerslayer; Or, The First War-Path. A Tale. Two Additional Books in the Series Also Available.

      D. Appleton and Company, New York 1872 - Very scarce and valuable laid-in autograph of J. Fenimore Cooper (1789-1851) will come with this book. Cooper wrote a check to "Self" (common practice in his day to get ready cash at the bank) for $15 on June 24th, 1843 to the Cashier of the Otsego County Bank in Cooperstown, New York. The check is 6 inches long x 2-1/4 inch high. It features a bird (presumably the Biblical dove) with a branch (presumably the olive branch foretelling the lessening of the flood to those on Noah's Ark) in flight. The check has a circular red stamp reading "Paid at the Otsego Co. Bank," Cooper's signature, which matches all his autographs offered for online sale, is in ink, boldly written, with an artistic feather-type device beneath. Also in his own hand are the date, a correction to the preprinted date of "183_" (changing the 3 to a 4), the word "self," the word "Fifteen" and the number "15." Both "self" and "Fifteen" are followed by long single lines. The "15" is followed by three short dashes, the first and third on the same lower level as the number and the center dash at the upper level of the number. The check blank has preprinted wavy lines running nearly the whole length of the check at top and bottom and an elliptical series forming a decorative device along the vertical left margin. The previous owner of this check and book (who lived near Cooperstown) pinned the check to the second blank front free end paper. The check has been carefully removed and placed in a plastic envelope, but the original common pin has been reinserted in the original two holes. The check has the matching holes near its left margin, but not penetrating any writing or preprinted decorations. A similar check is selling for $1,500 online (at the time of writing, 2011). Turning to the book itself, it is in very good condition. The boards are in a purplish cloth with elaborate blindstamping of a variety of decorative and floral devices over most of the front and back board surfaces. A gilt tomahawk being held with hand and forearm is centered over blindstamping at the front board center. The board cloth and gilt tomahawk are no doubt faded a bit from the original. The board edges are beveled and there is a 1/2 inch x 1/8 inch ink spot about 1-1/2 inch from the spine and the same distance from the bottom edge. The corners are rounded. The spine has gilt lettering of the title and author's last name. A quiver of arrows forms the main decorative device. There are three horizontal bands of floral decorations at the spine heel and crown. The other band is approximately 5-1/2 inches from the spine heel. All are in gilt. The board edges have modest shelf wear. The binding is tight. The endpapers are in a creamy yellow paper. The previous owner has very neatly signed her name in green ink at the center of the front free endpaper. The book contains 7 full-page black-and-white illustrations, with one as a frontispiece. A half-page illustration is found on the facing title page. These dramatic illustrations are separated by an intact tissue guard. There are no tissue guards for the other illustrations. There is no significant foxing or soiling on any of the pages, including those with illustrations. The pages are slightly toned as would be expected with a book of this vintage. The text is presented in two columns per page. Some of the 239 pages have a slight wrinkle, apparently original from the bindery, since there is no evidence of dampstaining. Interestingly, the title page lists the author as James Fenimore Cooper rather than J. Fenimore Cooper, the more common identification. Two additional books in approximately the same condition and from the same Appleton series, owned by the same previous owner, can be purchased with this volume at an additional cost of $500. They are "The Prairie. A Tale" (1872) and "The Pathfinder: Or, The Inland Sea" (1872). The two additional books each have holiday gift inscriptions dated 1873, one book each to two brothers from a sister. These a [Attributes: Hard Cover]

         Vergleichende Betrachtungen über neuere geometrische Forschungen.

      Erlangen: Deichert, 1872. First edition, first printing. A fine copy, unopened in original wrappers, of his famous unification of geometry through group theory - the ‘Erlanger Programm - which “was an outstanding landmark in the mathematics of the nineteenth century.” (Bell). Klein’s unification of projective and non-Euclidean geometry “brought full recognition at last to the neglected theories of Bolyai and Lobachevsky. Their logical consistency was now established.” (Struik). Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics, no. 54. “The conceptions grouped together under the name ‘Erlanger Programm’ were presented in 1872 in ‘Vergleichende Betrachtungen über neuere geometrische Forschungen’. This work reveals the early familiarity with the concept of group that Klein acquired chiefly through his contact with Lie and from C. Jordan. The essence of the ‘Erlanger Programm’ is that every geometry known so far is based on a certain group, and the task of the geometry in question consists in setting up the invariants of this group. The geometry with the most general group, which was already known, was topology; it is the geometry of the invariants of the group of all continuous transformations—for example, of the plane. Klein then successively distinguished the projective, the affine, and the equiaffine or principal group of the particular dimension; in certain cases the succeeding group is a subgroup of the previous one. To these groups belong the projective, affine, and equiaffine geometries with their invariants, whereby the equiaffine geometry is the same as the Euclidean elementary geometry. “The non-Euclidean geometries accounted for with the aid of the Cayley-Klein models, as well as the various types of circular and spherical geometries devised by Moebius, Laguerre, and Lie, could likewise be viewed as the invariant theories of certain subgroups of the projective groups. In his later years Klein returned to the ‘Erlanger Programm’ and, in a series of works, showed how theoretical physics, and especially the theory of relativity, which had emerged in the meantime, can be understood on the basis of the ideas presented there. The ‘Programm’ was translated into six languages and guided much work undertaken in the following years: for example, the analytic geometry of Lothar Heffter, school instruction, and the lifelong efforts of W. Blaschke in differential geometry. Only later in the twentieth century was it superseded.” (DSB VII: 397). Rosenfeld, A History of Non-Euclidean Geometry, pp. 338-44; Parkinson, Breakthroughs, p.381; Struik, A Concide History of Mathematics, pp.272; Boyer, A History of Mathematics, pp.592-94; Bell, The Development of Mathematics, pp.444-47; Gray, Worlds out of Nothing, pp.227-29; Klein, Mathematical Thought from Ancient to Modern Times, pp.917-20.8vo: 234 x 153 mm.

         Portrait of a young Chinese man, c 1872

      Albumen print photograph, carte de visite format (100 x 60 mm). The photographer's studio imprint verso gives the address as 324 George Street, Sydney. The company operated at these premises during 1872-73, but during 1872 Beaufoy Merlin also travelled to the New South Wales goldfields (Gulgong, Hill End and nearby towns) at the behest of Bernard Otto Holtermann, a highly successful gold miner and merchant, who had commissioned Merlin and Charles Bayliss to photographically document every aspect of life on the goldfields (see Burke, Keast. "Gold and silver : photographs of Australian goldfields from the Holtermann Collection". Sydney, 1973). Another copy of this photograph, bearing a derogatory, contemporary manuscript title 'All Right' was published in Masterpieces of Australian Photography (Josef Lebovic Gallery, 1989, no. 90)

         [CIRCUS HISTORY] Caoutchouc, the Hairless Horse

      Albumen print photograph, carte de visite format (103 x 65 mm, loose within original album page window), early 1870s. The album page is inscribed in pencil in period hand: "Hairless Horse which I have handled in Melbourne. Knew the owner. A remarkable freak not a trace of hair even as an eyelash. Sepp. / India rubber Horse entirely Black and Smooth"; the back of the carte de visite is inscribed: "Ballone River Qld". A wood engraving of this horse - whose name was Caoutchouc - by Ebenezer and David Syme (dated July 16, 1872), is held in the collection of the State Library of Victoria, Melbourne. An entry in the Auckland Daily Southern Cross of November 28, 1873, advertises Caoutchouc's arrival and presentation there, as well as giving a brief history of the horse, which was allegedly discovered as a wild brumby near the Balonne River in southeast Queensland, and although used briefly as a working horse was soon sold to an entrepreneur for ten pounds. The article states that the owner will not sell the horse now - even for 1500 pounds - and that having been displayed in exhibitions and fairs in Australia, the horse is now bound for San Francisco, thence to be taken across the United States and ultimately to the United Kingdom. The British Library holds a poster which advertises an appearance of Caoutchouc at the Alexandra Palace, Muswel Hill, London (tentatively dated 1885 but most likely 1875), bearing an image of the horse and the caption " The marvellous equine phenomenon, Caoutchouc or hairless horse. Just imported from Queensland, Australia, and never before Exhibited in England, is on view daily. Admission threepence." The horse's name, deriving from the Tupi (an indigenous language of Brazil) word for "rubber", was clearly intended to describe the appearance and feel of the horse's coat.

In fact, the community divided among a range of prayer books, traditional and liberal; none became predominant. On the author: Isaac Meyer Wise. (1819-1900)American Reform rabbi, editor, and author; born at Steingrub, Bohemia, March 29, 1819; died at Cincinnati, Ohio, March 26, 1900. He was the son of Leo Wise, a school-teacher, and received his early Hebrew education from his father and grandfather, later continuing his Hebrew and secular studies in Prague. He received the hattarat hora'ah from the Prague bet din, composed of Rabbis Rapoport, Samuel Freund, and E. L. Teweles A pioneer of Reform Judaism in America, Isaac Mayer Wise, a prolific writer, became its acknowledged leader and its institutional architect, organizing the Union of American Hebrew Congregations (1873), the Hebrew Union College (1875), and the Central Conference of American Rabbis (1889). The reforms that he instituted sought to adapt Judaism to modernity and to new conditions of life in a new land. This frontispiece portrait faces the title page of Wise's The Cosmic God, a philosophical work that had its origin in a series of lectures delivered by Wise in the fall and winter of 1874-1875. Wise was also an organizer and mover in the establishment of the Central Conference of American Rabbis, in 1889. Elected its president, he served until he died. This conference adopted the Union Prayer Book that would be used by all Reform congregations. Isaac Mayer Wise died on March 26, 1900. He was a pioneer Reform rabbi who tried to unite American Jewry, as well as a mover in establishing the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, Hebrew Union College, and the Central Conference of American Rabbis.
