        Groningen, Tussen Beide Markten - ca. 1840-1860.

      ?Tusschen de Beide Markten Groningen?. Lithografie vervaardigd ca. 1840-1860 door Steendrukkerij J.H. v/d. Weijer te Groningen naar een tekening van Sybolt Berghuis (1820-1896). Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 41,5 x 46 cm.Gezicht van de Groningse binnenstad naar het westen, Tussen Beide Markten van de Grote Markt naar de Vismarkt. In de achtergrond de Aa-toren.In het midden van de 19de-eeuw kent Groningen een periode van grote bevolkingsgroei waarbij omwille van stadsuitbreiding de poorten werden gesloopt en de vesting werd ontmanteld. Groningen werd de zesde stad van Nederland. Vanaf 1854 is er een gemeentelijke gasfabriek, waardoor de openbare weg, maar ook veel interieurs van winkels en woningen nu voor het eerst voldoende werden verlicht. Eveneens in de jaren 1850 kwam er een einde aan de private mestvaalten binnen de stad en werd er een begin gemaakt met de aanleg van riolering. Pas vanaf 1880 kregen woningen een aansluiting op de waterleiding.Het betrekkelijke isolement waarin Groningen verkeerde, werd toen voor wat betreft landverkeer verbroken. De eerste bestrate rijksweg, naar Assen, werd geopend in 1825, maar werd pas in in 1839 doorgetrokken naar Zwolle. In 1842 en 1849 volgden de Friesestraatweg en de weg naar de grens richting Hannover. Pas als laatste grote stad in ons land maakte Groningen in 1866 kennis met het spoor.In het witte gebouw links op de prent, het zgn. Blokhuis, verkoopt men manufacturen. In 1893 zou het ?telefoonbureel? van de Nederlandsche Bell Telephoon Maatschappij zich hier vestigen, waar telefonistes de verbindingen legden voor telefoon-abonnees van de stad. (Thans bevindt zich op deze plek Bakkerij Bart.) Er tegenover was de paraplu- en parasolwinkel van Lestrade gevestigd. Meer richting Vismarkt zien we ook de lakenwinkel van J.G. Bakker.Tussen Beide Markten anno 2015Prijs: ?925,-.

        ON THE CHEMICAL ACTION OF THE RAYS OF THE SOLAR SPECTRUM ON PREPARATIONS OF SILVER AND OTHER SUBSTANCES, BOTH METALLIC AND NON-METALLIC, AND ON SOME PHOTOGRAPHIC PROCESSES.; Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London 1840, Part 1, pp. 1 - 59

      R. and E. Taylor], [London 1840 - 4to., 59 pp., 2 leaves of plates. Later wrappers with printed labels on the front wrapper and spine. Extracted from Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Volume 130. Fine. Housed in a newly made pamphlet case of cloth-backed paper over boards, with printed labels on the upper cover and spine. Sir John F.W. Hershel (1792 - 1871) was the son of the renowned astronomer, Sir William Herschel. His university years showed him to be a gifted mathematician, resulting in his election as a Fellow of the Royal Society. After brief forays into legal studies and an academic career at Cambridge, he became his father's assistant late in 1816. His independent means allowed him to pursue his interests in the sciences; among them was the study of light. In the spring of 1831, he conducted a series of experiments on the light sensitivity of salts of platinum; his earlier experiments with hyposulphites to dissolve "muriate of silver" applied to those with platinum salts, brought him to the edge of codifying the photographic process. He shared the results of these experiments with his friends, David Brewster, Charles Babbage, and William Henry Fox Talbot. His enduring scientific pursuit was the study of light, and as the first to embrace photography as a scientific tool, he invented numerous processes.With the announcement of Daguerre's process on 22 January 1839, and Talbot's announcement within a few days, he made and fixed his own paper based photographs by 30 January 1839, and he had the foresight to reverse the negative to positive tones. Herschel presented his findings in a paper he read to the Royal Society on 14 March 1839, in which he stressed the superior qualities of hyposulphite of soda to common salt for the "fixing" of photographs. He withdrew his paper from publication out of consideration for his friend, Talbot, and only a brief abstract was published.In, On the Chemical Action of the Rays of Light., his first full published paper on photography, he stresses the necessity of using achromatic lenses, he introduced the terms negative and positive into the nomenclature, he described a process for making direct positive photographs and both negative and positive photographs on glass, the superiority of silver bromide over other silvers salts, and he predicts full color photography, having made a color photograph of the spectrum in 1839, in which he was unable to "fix" the colors.WorldCat locates nine copies. Gernsheim - Incunabula of British Photographic Literature No. 1068. Roosens and Salu fail to list this. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Deux Années de l'Histoire d'Orient 1839-1840: Faisant Suite A L'histoire De La Guerre De Mehemed-Ali En Syrie Et En Asie-Mineure, 1832-1833,(TWO VOLUMES).

      Delloye, Libraire-Editeur, Paris 1840 - 8° (225 x 140 mm), Volume I: VIII-391 pp., 1 plan of the battle of Nezib / Volume II: 399 pp. half-titles, original publishers’ yellow original wrappers preserved, some spotting, plan lightly browned, uncut, book plate of Sefik E. Atabey. This work is a sequel to Cadalvene’s Histoire de la Guerre de Mehmet-Ali, 1837. It is a continuation of Cadalvene’s interest in Mehmet Ali. Cadalvene was a business man who spent several years in Egypt, from 1829 to at least 1834, as a representative of certain French business interests. After his campaign in Syria, Mehmet Ali was offered loans by a number of French banks, and Cadalvene, representing Rothschild’s, offered to lend him 100 million French francs. While waiting for Mehmet Ali to make a decision, Cadalvene travelled extensively in the region, gathering the materials for his books. The first of these, L’Egypte et La Nubie, 1836, is an account of a voyage up the Nile which he wrote with J. de Breuvery, who accompanied him on his travels. Later he turned his attention to Mehmet Ali’s aspirations in the Levant, and he presents us with an acute portrait of the ambitious Pasha of Egypt. Navari 261; Carre I, pp. 280-82, 294.

      London: House of Commons, 3 August, 1840. Folio, 207 pp.; in the original blue printed wrappers.

Hutt, and Alex. Busby. Their evidence gives and account of the natives and their lands, mission labours, origin and history of the New Zealand Company, and the necessity for government and regulated colonisation."

        A View of Messrs. Barclay & Perkins's Brewery. This Plate is Dedicated by Permission to Messrs. Barclay and Perkins, by their Obedient and Obliged Servant, D. Wolstenholme.

      Published by Dean Wolstenholme, 22 Chads Row, Gray's Inn Road,, London, 1840 - London Pride Engraving with aquatint. A print of the Barclay and Perkins brewery in Southwark. The brewery was bought by the Barclay banking family in 1781, and an American nephew placed in charge alongside the existing manager, Perkins. The brewery was successful, although the print shows it in its second incarnation, as it burnt down in 1832. It was a model of industrial innovation, and was viewed as a tourist attraction by visitors to London. One visitor, however, received a chilly welcome: the brewery workers famously chased out Marshal Jacob van Haynau, who had brutally repressed rebellions against Austria in Italy and Hungary and supposedly ordered Hungarian women sympathetic to the rebels to be whipped. When the Italian freedom fighter Giuseppe Garibaldi came to London in 1864, he visited the brewery to give his thanks.Dean Wolstenholme the Younger (1798-1882) was a sporting painter and engraver. Image: 403 by 594mm (15.75 by 23.5 inches). Sheet: 610 by 875mm (24 by 34.5 inches).
