        Abbildungen und Beschreibungen neuer oder wenig gekannter Conchylien

      Cassel, Theodor Fischer, 1845-1851. Three parts in three (complete). 4to (28 x 21.5 or 22 cm) [12], [8], [8] pp, 144 fine hand-coloured lithographed plates with ca. 900 accompanying text sheets. Uniform contemporary red half calf over red grained boards. Spines with four raised bands; compartments with gilt titles and number.l The German (later Chilean) conchologist Rudolf Philippi (1808-1904) initiated and edited this series, but he was not the only author. Contributions are by various specialists such as Dunker, Koch, Pfeiffer, a.o. Philippi made several other contributions to conchology, this being the largest and most important one. Genera treated include, for instance, Haliotis, Trochus, Littorina, Venus, Natica, Helix, Bulimus, Achatina, Nerita, Strombus, etc., etc. The fine plates have been printed by the famous "lithographische Anstalt von Th. Fischer in Cassel" and most probably all drawn by Philippi himself. The important index of shells in each volume is present. The plate numbering is erratic. The page numbering even more so. All pages numbered by pencil and some text a bit foxed, or more uniformly tanned as usual. A few plates have some marginal foxing and of some 18 plates the paper is slightly darker. Spotting and tanning are frequent in copies of this series, in this set however, it is quite limited. In all a very good and attractively bound set. Caprotti, p. 210; Nissen ZBI, 3154.

        Narrative of Some Passages in the History of Van Diemen's Land, During the last three years of Sir John Franklin's Administration of its Government

      Richard and John E. Taylor, circa, London 1845 - Octavo, very good in recent cloth with original wrappers bound in; ownership signature of William Kay and presentation notation (see description), bookplate of Rodney Davidson. Presentation copy to Franklin's nephew. First, unpublished edition of a "very rare" book (Ferguson).Printed in highly limited numbers for private distribution among Franklin's immediate circle, this was his justification in answer to the charges made against him in the dispute with the Colonial Office over his disastrous but well-intentioned administration of Van Diemen's Land. Perhaps surprisingly given the contentiousness of the dispute, the book is an even-toned autobiographical narrative of events from a decisive period of the history of Van Diemen's Land, when the future of the colony itself hung in the balance. This is by far the rarest of the two books published by Franklin, the other being Narrative of a Journey to the Shores of the Polar Sea (London, 1823), and was written by Franklin after his return to England in 1844. Shortly after, he left on his fatal expedition to the Arctic, and it has been said that Franklin's clash with Whitehall weighed on him when he accepted the command. The work was not published until after he had sailed, and so all presentation copies are inscribed by an amanuensis "By order of Sir John Franklin".This particular copy was presented to the architect and surveyor William Porden Kay (1809-c.1870), the nephew of Sir John Franklin through his first wife Eleanor Porden. At Franklin's invitation, Kay took a position as architect in Van Diemen's Land, arriving at Hobart in 1842. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The American Electro Magnetic Telegraph : with the Reports of Congress, and a Description of All Telegraphs Known, employing electricity or galvanism. Illustrated by Eight-one Wood Engravings

      Philadelphia: Lea & Blanchard, 1845. First Edition. Boards. Very Good. First Edition. viii, [9]-208 pages. 8vo. Early 1/4 leather over marbled boards. Binding is very worn overall. Initials on second flyleaf. Upper right corner torn from the title page affecting the 'e' of "The" and the 'N' of "AMERICAN". Ex-libris The Caldwell Collection at the Library of Knox College, with the bookplate of Edward and Lucy Morse Caldwell on the front pastedown endpaper. Front and rear hinges starting. Inked and penciled notations underneath the specimen of the new Telegraphic Language on pages 28 and 29, otherwise clean internally. Boards. Perhaps the most important book documenting the earliest history of telegraphy. Published in 1845 by Vail after the successful test of a congressionally approved experimental telegraph line from Baltimore to Washington DC in response to repeated requests for information. "Apparently the first American book devoted to the electric telegraph", it contains 81 wood engravings, over 60 pages documenting the device itself and it's applications (including oddly Chess Playing), many reports to Congress on the subject, and a history of telegraphs employing electricity in various ways for the transmission of intelligence. As such, it is the earliest, and most complete survey of the work done to that date, the cradle period of telegraphic expansion into the "real world" from the laboratory. There also exists a 24 page work cited in Norman and Hooke's Origins of Cyberspace (#208), again by Vail in 1845, which includes pages [9]-31 of the present work, apparently from the same set of type, albeit with different page numbering and a separate title page. That pamphlet covers the telegraph device used in the Baltimore Washington trial, but lacks the historical perspective as well as the survey of other devices that had been used up until that date. While Norman and Hooke note that the 24 page pamphlet was "probably" issued first, we found no evidence in our investigation to support the precedence of either work. Both contain the identical early printing of Morse code. Shiers & Sterling (6-003) ; Not in Origins of Cyberspace ; Wheeler 1137 ; Ronalds Collection (which only included the 1847 edition).

        An impressive collection of Masonic documents with superb engravings

      Various, 1845-1881. var.. "An impressive collection of approximately twenty ornate Masonic documents, many relating to James P. Kimball and his family. Kimball was a noted geologist and one time Director of the United States Mint. Offered together with related letters and ephemera concerning Kimball's freemason membership in various Masonic lodges. Some folds, minor foxing and mounting remnants on verso, some still affixed to loose scrapbook pages, else fine condition. Many of the documents, some engraved on vellum, are masterpieces of the art of printing. One of the most elaborate is an 18"" x 14 "" lithograph by J.H Bufford dated Boston, May 30,1861 issued to James Kimball certifying his membership into the Boston Lodge replete with incredible scenes of roman ruins and laborers working on a new temple below. The collection also includes a very nice 1851 vellum induction certificate for Kmball's father in the lodge at Salem, 16 1/2 x 10 3/4 in., with a mirrored text accomplished in Latin and a blue silk ribbon woven through the left margin with a red seal at the end. Also of interest is James Kimball's enormous (23 x 17 in.) vellum certificate as a ""Sovereign Grand Inspector General 33° and HONORARY MEMBER of our SUPREME COUNCIL. "", dated Boston, 16 August 1876. The collection includes many more including blank vellum certificate for a Royal Arch Mason, and velum certificates for the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. A superb collection of engravings perfect for display.James P. Kimball (1836-1913) was born in Salem Massachusetts. He first studied at Harvard and subsequently at several institutions in Germany including the Georg-August-Universität in Göttingen. He became a professor of Chemistry and Economic Geology at Cornell in he 1850s. His work was interrupted by the Civil War, where he served on the staff of Gen. Irvin McDowell and was present at Second Bull Run, Antietam, Fredericksburg, Chancellorsville and Gettysburg. Toward the end of the war, he left the army to work private mining engineer in New York, taking the position of President of the Everett Iron Company. After some time working for the United States Geological survey, he served as Director of the United States Mint from 1885 to 1889. Following his work at the mint, he continued as a private consulting geologist to western mining and railroad interests."

Ethnographie (19). - Vollständig, mit dem posthum erschienenen Band V, dem Atlas und dem Berhaus-Atlas sehr selten. - "Als sein eigentliches Lebenswerk betrachtete Humboldt jedoch den 'Kosmos'. 1828-29 hatte er in der Berliner Singakademie Vorlesungen darüber gehalten. Der letzte, fünfte, Band erschien posthum nach Humboldts Notizen. Er selber sprach aus, daß sein Werk die physische Welt - alles, was wir von ihr wissen - beschreiben sollte, 'von den fernsten Nebelflecken und kreisenden Doppelsternen bis zu den kleinsten Organismen der tierischen Schöpfung im Meer und Land und zu den zarten Pflanzenkeimen, welche die nackte Felsklippe am Abhang eisiger Berggipfel bekleiden '. Dies physische Naturgemälde fände dort seine Begrenzung, 'wo die Sphäre der Intelligenz beginnt und der ferne Blick sich senkt in eine andere Welt'. Sein Werk bezeichne diese Grenze und überschreite sie nicht. Der Kosmos enthält eine vollständige Übersicht über die einzelnen naturwissenschaftlichen Disziplinen und ihre Beziehungen untereinander. Obwohl Humboldt überzeugt war, daß technologische Kenntnisse für den Fortschritt der Menschheit unentbehrlich seien und daß naturwissenschaftliche Bildung für das Wachstum sowohl der Stärke wie der Wohlfahrt einer Nation unerläßlich wäre, hielt er die humanistische Bildung für ebenso wichtig und ein Gleichgewicht zwischen ihnen beiden für notwendig. Der zweite Band erörtert eingehend die Entwicklung der Naturdichtung und der künstlerischen Abbildung der Natur und leitet dann hinüber zur Geschichte der geographischen und der naturwissenschaftlichen Entdeckungen, bemüht, eine Brücke zu schlagen zwischen Poesie und Wissenschaft."

        Nuevo Diccionario de Agricultura, teórica-práctica y económica, y de medicina doméstica y veterinaria .

      1842-1845. . - Boix Editor, Imprenta y Librería. Madrid. . 13 Vol. . . Cuarto. Pasta española de época. Botánica / Agronomía / Ciencias Naturales / Biología , Siglo XIX . Entre 1797 y 1803 Juan Álvarez Guerra tradujo y editó en español la impresionante obra del abate Rozier. Este diccionario de agricultura fue la obra de referencia en Europa durante las décadas finales del s. XVIII y todo el siglo XIX. El traductor decidió años después realizar una nueva versión en la que, aunque conservó la mención a la autoría original, añadió todos los conocimientos adquiridos durante los más de veinte años transcurridos entre una y otra edición, con lo que prácticamente podemos hablar de Álvarez Guerra como el autor y de Rozier como su fuente de inspiración. Consta de 13 volúmenes encuadernados en pasta española de época con lomeras cuajadas de dorados de motivos vegetales. La obra presenta multitud de ilustraciones en láminas desplegables fuera de paginación. Los grabados recuerdan por su diseño a los de la enciclopedia Diderot, sin duda el referente principal de Rozier a la hora de elaborar el texto. Muy bien conservado.

In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast.that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest."
