        ORNITHOLOGIE) MANUEL DE L’ORNITHOLOGISTE PREPARATEUR contenant la collection complète des oiseaux du dauphiné.

      - Grenoble, Chez H. Bouteille, 1845. In-8 demi-chagrin fauve récent, dos à nerfs, auteur et titre dorés, (36pp+72pl.). Malgré quelques rousseurs normales pour la période, il s’agit d’un BEL EXEMPLAIRE bien complet des 72 lithographies d'après Cassien représentant 300 sujets; quelques-unes sont plus marquées mais dans l’ensemble les illustrations sont superbes. Très RARE EDITION parue 2 ans après l’ornithologie originale, contenant des extraits du texte mais la totalité des illustrations. Il se subdivise de la manière suivante:- notions préliminaires, définitions,- anatomie et physiologie,- taxidermie,- table alphabétique des noms d’oiseaux dessinés,- lithographies.Des vignettes ont été rajoutées sous quelques planches avec les noms d’oiseaux.Célèbre illustrateur, Victor Cassien est entré dans l’histoire pour le fameux "Album du Dauphiné" , où la finesse du trait, l’expressivité et un certain romantisme ont contribué à en faire le plus célèbre ouvrage illustré dauphinois; son talent est au moins équivalent ici, le dessin très fin et expressif et la lithographie parfaite.Hippolyte Bouteille était pharmacien de formation et devint conservateur du muséum d’histoire naturelle de Grenoble. Il créa la société d’acclimatation des Alpes et le jardin d’acclimatation de Grenoble.Cet ouvrage ne figure pas dans Maignien ni dans la vente Perrin.

        Autograph Letter Signed "Mohan Lal," Informing his Correspondent that "a Ticket for admission to the Botanical Garden has been forwarded to me by Mr. Oliveira & therefore I beg you not to take any trouble."]

      London 1845 - [London]: 53 Manchester Street, 11 June 1845. Duodecimo (ca. 13,5x9 cm). 2 pp., with an integral blank leaf. Brown ink on paper with a blind stamped monogram in the upper left corner. Mild fold marks, minor stains on verso of the second blank leaf, otherwise a very good letter. A rare letter by Mohan Lal (Zutshi) - one of the few native Indian players of the Great Game who greatly contributed to the British victory in the First Anglo-Afghan War (1838-1842). The letter was written in England where Mohan Lal lived after the end of the war. His two major books, "Travels in the Panjab, Afghanistan & Turkistan to Balk, Bokhara, and Herat" and "Life of the Amir Dost Mohammed Khan, of Kabul" were to be published in London the following year. The latter is considered a primary source on the First English-Afghan War. An offspring of a Kashmiri noble family from Delhi, Mohan Lal attended the newly formed Delhi English College. In 1832-1834 he accompanied Sir Alexander Burnes on his expedition to Central Asia with the aim of political and military intelligence; they became close friends. "Later, Lal was the Commercial Agent for the British on the Indus and Political Assistant to Burnes in Kabul during the first Afghan War. Unlike Burnes, he survived the massacres of 1841 and continued to keep Calcutta informed of events in the Afghan capital from the house of a merchant where he had taken refuge [.] Mohan Lal played a major role in securing the release of British prisoners held hostage in Bamiyan" (Wikipedia). In the letter Mohan Lal mentions Benjamin Oliveira, a British politician and businessman, writer, philanthropist, Member of Parliament and Director of the British Institution of Beaux Arts and Painting (See more: British Armorial Bindings/ University of Toronto Libraries on-line).

        Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Raven' First Printing in 'The American Review'

      New York:: Wiley and Putnam,. 1845.. First edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. Bound volume for the year 1845, January, February, March, May and June; with the February issue, in which Edgar Allan Poe's 'The Raven' was published for the first time. The April issue (pp331-341) never bound in. Late in 1844 Poe first attempted to have the poem published in Graham's Magazine, where he had served as editor beginning in 1841; in 1842 Poe's rival Rufus Wilmot Griswold became editor. Graham's rejected 'The Raven' in 1844, although Poe was paid $15. The poem was first printed in the February 1845 issue of the American Review, and became an instant sensation. The poem, at the table of contents, is listed with the pseudonym 'Quarles'. Poe found inspiration from both Charles Dickens and Elizabeth Barrett, in the notion of a talking raven in Barnaby Rudge, and in Barrett's meter and rhythm. 8vo, pp1-656 (with April issue lacking as stated above), extremely bright copy. Bound in the original blue gray papered boards with contemporary quarter tan calf. No title on spine, spine aged but stable. Hinges somewhat tender, but a fine unadulterated copy, scrupulously white text. With a Silas Ketcham, Hopkinton N.H. bookplate inside the front cover, a partially removed label from the New Hampshire Antiquarian Society, and a Rufus Merrill printed library notice, and S. Ketchum and number in contemporary hand at the ffep.

        An original design for two porcelain vases

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from a few light foxing marks. A rare example of an original watercolour design for porcelain, by the Samson factory of Paris. This finished design was intended as a reference source from which the porcelain painters could work, using the design as a guide for the colours and image to be transformed from paper into fine porcelain. The French porcelain manufactory of Samson & Cie. was established by "Edmé Samson (b. Paris, 1810; d. Paris, 1891) at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris. The intention of the firm was to reproduce ceramics from museums and private collections, and it claimed that all such reproductions would be distinctly marked to avoid confusion with the originals. In 1864, the factory was moved to Montreuil by Samson's son, Emile Samson (1837-1913). The range of wares included copies of 18th-century porcelain from such factories as Sèvres, Chelsea, Meissen and Derby, Chinese export-wares, especially armorial wares decorated with famille rose colours and mugs decorated with the Fitzhugh pattern, Delftware, Iznikware, maiolica and faience."

        THE SHIPWRECKED ORPHANS: A TRUE NARRATIVE OF THE SUFFERINGS OF JOHN IRELAND AND WILLIAM DOYLEY, WHO WERE WRECKED IN THE SHIP CHARLES EATON, ON AN ISLAND IN THE SOUTH SEAS.

      New Haven: S. Babcock, [1845]. - 64pp., including eight full-page illustrations in text. 16mo. Original tan pictorial wrappers. Covers worn and soiled, spine perished. Text moderately foxed. Last leaf torn slightly in gutter margin. Still, a good copy of this scarce work. Scarce narrative, published as part of Teller's Tales for children, relating the tale of two boys who survived the wreck of the Barque Charles Eaton and subsequent capture by natives in 1834. The Charles Eaton crashed on the Great Barrier Reef, off the coast of Australia. The castaways constructed two rafts out of the wreckage and began to float, finally coming ashore on the islands off the tip of York Peninsula, near present-day Queensland. Unfortunately, the natives were not friendly and murdered most of the refugees. Several young boys were traded to other, friendlier natives for a bunch of bananas, but the only two left alive by the time rescue arrived were the cabin boy, John Ireland, and the young son of one of the passengers, William Doyley. The work is illustrated with eight plates showing the natives in various scenes, such as murdering the castaways. "This 'True narrative.' published for juvenile readers is very rare" - Ferguson. Only a handful of copies on OCLC. FERGUSON 4078A.

        Well-documented Porcelain Bowl from a Child?s Doll Dinner Service owned by Pierre-Auguste Renoir

      n.p., n.d. "Porcelain bowl, 2.75? diameter, 0.75? high, 1.25? diameter base, transfer decorated pink rose borders, gilt highlights. Part of a child?s doll dinner service.Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born in Limoges, a medieval city famous for its porcelain. His family moved to Paris in 1845 when Renoir was four. His first home in Paris was an apartment near the Louvre museum. In 1854, at 13, Renoir accepted a position as an apprentice in the porcelain factory, Lévy frères, where he painted designs on china plates, cups, and vases. His skillful work earned a good income and the nickname Monsieur Rubens. In 1858, when automation of the porcelain factory made Renoir's position obsolete, Renoir tried other jobs including painting murals for cafes, religious hangings for missionaries, and decorations on fans. Renoir made frequent visits to the Louvre ?" near his apartment and the factory ?" studying the art of earlier French masters. At the age of 20, in 1861, he became a student at the art school of Charles Gleyre.In his book ?La Vie et l'Oeuvre de Pierre-Auguste Renoir,? his agent, Ambroise Vollard, describes seeing a miniature service in Renoir's dining room: ?I saw on the sideboard shelf of the dining room, a small coffee service and two candlesticks made out of porcelain, decorated by hand, well applied ... ?Those are the only pieces I still have from my old career as a porcelain decorator', Renoir told me.? This is also mentioned in ?Renoir in Time? by noted French art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel.This porcelain bowl was originally in the Pierre Auguste Renoir Personal Artifacts and Archives Collection consigned to Hantman?s in 2005 by Renoir?s grandson, Paul Renoir (1924-2005), son of his youngest child Claude (1901-1969). As part of his inheritance, Claude received Renoir?s home, Les Collettes, in Cagnes-asur-Mer in the south of France, which contained most of the personal property in this collection."

        Neue Untersuchungen in den Gebieten der Physiologie und der praktischen Heilkunde.

      - Freiburg, Druck und Verlag von Adolph Emmerling, 1845, 8°, VIII, 402 pp., 9 litn. Tafeln, Halbleinenband der Zeit; St.a.Tit., bis auf 6 fleckige Seiten ein sauberes Exemplar. Selten - Erste Ausgabe! - Karl Heinrich Baumgärtner (1798-1886) versuchte 1830 nachzuweisen, dass durch die Spaltungen des Eidotters kugelige Massen entstehen, aus denen sich die Einzelteile des Tieres entwickeln. Diese Bildungskugeltheorie ist ein Vorläufer der Zelltheorie von Theodor Schwann. - - 'Die Kugel und die Zelle' - "Schon in meinen ersten physiologischen Arbeiten , deren Resultate ich in einer Sitzung der Gesellschaft der deutschen Naturforscher, zu Heidelberg 1829, und in meinem Werke über die Nerven und das Blut 1830 mitgetheilt habe, habe ich die Entwicklung der Gewebe, und zwar vom Dotter an, zum Gegenstande meiner Untersuchung gemacht. Ich glaube für mich das Prioritätsrecht vor allen andern Beobachtern behaupten zu dürfen, die Entwicklungsgeschichte der Thiere in histologischer Beziehung untersucht zu haben, nachdem die trefflichen Arbeiten von Döllinger, Pander, Rathke, v. Bäer u. A. über die morphologische Entwicklung des Thieres im Ei vorangegangen waren. Diese ersten Untersuchungen führten schon zu dem bedeutenden Resultate, dass ich nachwiess, dass sämmtliche Gewebe aus einzelnen Bildungsherden entstehen, die ich im Anfange noch mit keinem Namen belegte, in der ersten Auflage meiner Grundzüge zur Physiologie und allgemeinen Pathologie 1835* aber Bildungskugeln nannte, nämlich Kugeln, in welchen die Bruchstücke der Gewebe gebildet werden. Von diesen Bildungskugeln gab ich schon in meinem Werke über die Nerven und das Blut vielfache Abbildungen, nämlich Tab. IV, Fig. 3 von den Bildungskugeln der Gewebe und Fig. 6 des Blutes der Forelle, Tab. VI. Fig. 4, Tab. VII, Fig. 3, 5, 7 und 8f und Tab. VIII. Fig. 10 bis 14, von den Gewebekugeln und Blutkugeln vom Frosche in verschiedener Entwicklung, Tab. XI. Fig. 10 den Bildungskugeln in dem Dotterschlauche der Eidechsen und Fig. 11--16 den sich zu Blut umwandelnden Bildungskugeln der Eidechse, und endlich Tab. XI. Fig. 6, den Bildungskugeln in der Dotterblase des Hühnchens und Fig. 8 und 9 solchen vom Blute des Hühnchens und von ausgebildetem Blute. - Ich muss hierzu bemerken, dass die von mir gegebene Nachweisung des Bestehens der Bildungskugeln nicht blos als eine Wiederholung der schon von frühern Physiologen aufgestellten Behauptung ist, dass das Thier aus Kugeln bestehe (zu welcher Annahme theils das mehrfach beobachtete Zerfallen der Gewebe in Körner und theils die vorzüglich bei niedern Thieren gesehenen Zellen, die man für Kugeln hielt, führte), sondern, dass durch dieselbe der oben erwähnte Satz aufgestellt und begründet wurde, dass durch Zusammenklumpen des Dotters zu vielen kleinen Kugeln eben so viele Bildungsherde für die Gewebe gesezt werden. - Im Jahre 1839 stellte nun Schwann die Zellentheorie auf, die sogleich beinahe von allen Physiologen angenommen und von Vielen als die wichtigste physiologische Entdeckung der Neuzeit begrüsst wurde. Ich glaube, einen gewissen Antheil an dieser schönen Entdeckung in Anspruch nehmen zu dürfen, und erlaube mir daher mit wenigen Worten zu zeigen wie weit ein solcher durch diejenigen meiner Werke, welche vor Schwanns "mikroskopischen Untersuchungen über die Uebereinstimmung in der Structur und dem Wachsthum der Thiede und Pflanzen" erschienen, begründet ist. Sodann werde ich, zu dem Gegenstand dieser Abhandlung übergehend, darzuthun suchen, in wie ferne die aufgefundenen Bildungsherde der Gewebe Bildungskugelh und in wie ferne sie Zellen genannt werden müssen, und welchen physiologischen Werth diese Kugeln und Zellen haben. - Es ist mir unbekannt, ob Schwann bei seinen Entdeckungen auf meinen Untersuchungen fortgebaut hat, oder ob er, ohne diese zu kennen, die Bildungsherde der Gewebe selbst gefunden hat, jedenfalls verdient jedoch Derjenige das Prioritätsrecht, welcher zuerst eine Entdeckung bekannt gemacht hat. Ich glaube mich als den . [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        "Blacks [sic] Fellows Grave, Cobram Creek, River Murray SA"

      South Australia: circa, 1845. Original pen & ink and watercolour sketch, 148 x 203 mm.; small tear to margin, otherwise very good, laid down on a leaf from an album, titled in ink bottom left, framed. A skilfully rendered watercolour of a scene of the Murray River from the mid-nineteenth-century.This evocative image records an encounter, by an early traveller along the Murray, of an Aboriginal grave marker. One of the earliest pioneers along this river, Thomas Mitchell, reported very frequent meetings with local tribes along the Murray and, thanks to his Aboriginal translator Piper, gave numerous interpretations of local customs he found of interest.This scene of a shallow creek which feeds into the Murray at Cobram, shows a four-posted Aboriginal grave marker with a canopy of leaves shading the burial site. What appears to be a dog - maybe a dingo - stands on its hind legs to inspect the grave, whilst birds circle overhead.Cobram, which lies on the Murray River north of Shepparton in northern Victoria, was the name of a pastoral station taken up by Octavius Phillpotts in 1845. It is thought that the name was derived from an Aboriginal word meaning "head", and that Cobram was the head pastoral station in the district. Cobram is now a rural township.

        Well-documented miniature nine-piece Porcelain Breakfast Service owned by Pierre-Auguste Renoir

      n.p., n.d. "Miniature nine-piece white porcelain breakfast service with gilt accents:Coffee pot, 32 mm high (with cover), 14 mm diameter circular base.Cream jug, 15 mm high, 10 mm diameter circular base.Sugar bowl with handles, 6 mm high, 10 mm diameter circular base.Two saucers, each 22 mm wide, 6 mm high.Cup with handle, 10 mm tall, 17 mm diameter circular top.Two small pots (no covers), each 12mm high, 11 mm diameter circular base.Oval tray with handles, 94 mm wide (including handles), 56 mm wide, 6 mm high.Pierre-Auguste Renoir was born in Limoges, a medieval city famous for its porcelain. His family moved to Paris in 1845 when Renoir was four. His first home in Paris was an apartment near the Louvre museum. In 1854, at 13, Renoir accepted a position as an apprentice in the porcelain factory, Lévy frères, where he painted designs on china plates, cups, and vases. His skillful work earned a good income and the nickname Monsieur Rubens. In 1858, when automation of the porcelain factory made Renoir's position obsolete, he tried other jobs including painting murals for cafes, religious hangings for missionaries, and decorations on fans. Renoir made frequent visits to the Louvre ?" near his apartment and the factory ?" studying the art of earlier French masters. At the age of 20, in 1861, he became a student at the art school of Charles Gleyre.In his book ?La Vie et l'Oeuvre de Pierre-Auguste Renoir,? his agent, Ambroise Vollard, describes seeing a miniature service in Renoir's dining room: ?I saw on the sideboard shelf of the dining room, a small coffee service and two candlesticks made out of porcelain, decorated by hand, well applied ... ?Those are the only pieces I still have from my old career as a porcelain decorator', Renoir told me.? This is also mentioned in ?Renoir in Time? by noted French art dealer Paul Durand-Ruel.This Miniature Porcelain Breakfast Service was originally in the Pierre Auguste Renoir Personal Artifacts and Archives Collection consigned to Hantman?s in 2005 by Renoir?s grandson, Paul Renoir (1924-2005), son of his youngest child Claude (1901-1969). As part of his inheritance, Claude received Renoir?s home, Les Collettes, in Cagnes-asur-Mer in the south of France, which contained most of the personal property in this collection."

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift.

      . Berlin 26. XII.1845. 2 1/2 Seiten 4°.. Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach (1792-1847), Chirurg, Wegbereiter der Transplantationschirurgie und der plastischen Chirurgie, führte die Äthernarkose in Deutschland ein. - An den Verleger Friedrich Brockhaus in Leipzig, dem er das Werk "Physiologie pathologique" des aus Breslau stammenden und in Paris ansässigen Mediziners Hermann Lebert (1813-1878) empfiehlt. - - "... Ein ausgezeichneter Gelehrter H. Dr. Lebert ... kam vor 2 Monaten nach Berlin um hier höchstens 14 Tage zu verweilen. Angezogen und hingerissen von dem was er in meiner Klinik erlebte, entschloß er sich bis zum Frühjahr hier zu bleiben und ein chirurg.-physiologisches Werk nach dem was er bei mir erlebt zu schreiben. Er hat in diesen kaum 2 Monaten Unglaubliches geschrieben, und mir vorgelesen. Ich glaube das Werk wird trefflich ... Unzähligemal angeführt und dadurch gewitzigt würde ich mich auf keinen Fall auf ein Zureden einlassen, aber der Lebert kann nur Ausgezeichnetes leisten, er ist ein Mirakel in schnellem und schönen Arbeiten ... - - Es ist mir recht peinlich daß ich Ew. Wohlgeboren noch kein M[anu]sc[ri]pt sende ..., aber seit einer Reise von Paris bin ich Abends und Nachts von so heftigen rheumatischen Schmerzen gefoltert und kann sie nicht los werden, daß ich wenig habe arbeiten können ..." - - Ferner über die erfreuliche Aufnahme seiner in diesem Jahr erschienenen "Operativen Chirurgie" in der Fachwelt - "Ich bin bei dem Neide und der Bösartigkeit der Welt wirklich verwundert wie die schärfsten Kritiker von denen ich nur Gift und Galle erwartete, mein Buch so viel Ehre angethan haben ..." - - Darunter ein mehrzeiliger eigenhändiger Antwortvermerk von Friedrich Brockhaus vom 7.I.1846 (rote Tinte). - - In einem Umschlag der Sammlung Brockhaus.

        Vermischte Schriften botanischen Inhalts.

Hugo von Mohl (1805-1872) was one of the most prominent German botanists of the 19th century known for his oustanding research on plant physiology and plant anatomy. The present rare work consists of 31 papers originally published elsewhere, sometimes revised and augmented. "In 1832 he was appointed professor of physiology at Bern and in 1835 professor of botany at Tüblingen, a chair he occupied until his death. Molh's scientific work deals with extremely diverse areas of botany. Among them he devoted himself to the technical problems of the microscope that he was able to construct... After a century Mohl remains famous for his works on the microscopic anatomy of plants and for his contributions to knowledge of the plant cell" (DSB). In recent years von Mohl's theory has received remarkable confirmation from the results of X-ray studies on cell walls. Stamp on title.//Stafleu & Cowan 6187.
