      Firenze: Felice le Monnier, 1845. [2], 516, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Full contemporary vellum, gilt spine with red leather label. With the engraved bookplate of Edith [Story] Peruzzi de' Medici on the front pastedown. Fine copy, in a quarter brown morocco slipcase with chemise. [2], 516, [2] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Inscribed by Elizabeth Barrett Browning to Edith Story. Inscribed on the front free endpaper: "Edith Marion Story, from her affectionate friend, Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Rome - Dec 26 - 59." Edith Story (1844-1907) was the daughter and youngest child of the expatriate American sculptor, lawyer and author, William Wetmore Story, who was the subject of a 1903 biography by Henry James entitled WILLIAM WETMORE STORY AND HIS FRIENDS. Among the closest of those friends were the Brownings. Elizabeth, in particular, was especially grateful to 15-year-old Edith for the generosity and kindness she showed the Brownings' son, Pen, barely 10 years old at the time his mother gave this book to her. Edith later married Simone de Peruzzi de' Medici, and became a writer. OCLC 2673701

        Journal of Researches into the Natural History and Geology of the Countries Visited During the Voyage of HMS Beagle Round the World

      London: John Murray, 1845. 2nd Edition 1st Printing. Three-quarters leather. Very Good/No Jacket. 17 x 13 cms (7" x 5"). PUBLISHING DETAILS: The very rare second edition of Darwin's 'first literary child', published by John Murray of London in 1845. (I can find no first editions and no other 1845 second editions for sale online.) 519 pages. Size: 17 x 13 cms (7" x 5"). Weight: 530g (1.2 pounds.) CONDITION: I would rate this as very good commensurate with its age. It is bound in three-quarters leather over red combed pattern boards, with 5 raised bands and gilt titling to the spine. The covers are clean and sound, having been sensitively restored. The binding is tight and secure throughout. The text and woodcuts are clean, bright and free from foxing. There is light foxing to the endpapers and a label of a previous owner - John Fielden - affixed to the front pastedown. All in all, a most attractive copy of a much sought-after second edition. THE BOOK: From Darwin Online: Darwin's Journal of researches, now known as Voyage of the Beagle, was his first book. As Darwin later recalled in his autobiography 'The voyage of the Beagle has been by far the most important event in my life and has determined my whole career'. He went on to write: As far as I can judge of myself I worked to the utmost during the voyage from the mere pleasure of investigation, and from my strong desire to add a few facts to the great mass of facts in natural science. But I was also ambitious to take a fair place among scientific men...... The success of this my first literary child always tickles my vanity more than that of any of my other books.' The second and only other edition was first published in 1845 in John Murray's Colonial and Home Library; Darwin sold the copyright for £150. The text was extensively revised and, according to Lady Barlow, reduced from about 224,000 words to 213,000. The title changes to Natural history and geology; the maps are omitted, to Darwin's regret, not to return until 1890; but the number of woodcuts is increased. It is a miserable piece of printing in small type with mean margins, but then the series was a cheap one. (A bit harsh, I feel. The margins are indeed tight but otherwise it presents very well.)

        141 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 514 S., 8 bis 4. Der Bibelexeget Henry Joseph Crelier unterrichtete in den Jahren 1845 bis 1855 an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern, welche bis 1830 von Jacob Mislin, dem Empfänger der Briefe, geleitet wurde. Später wurde er Kaplan in Besancon, Frankreich und danach Pfarrer von Rebeuvelier bzw. Bressancourt, wo er starb. Mehrere seiner zahlreichen Publikationen richteten sich gegen Ernest Renan (1823-1892), der schwerwiegende Zweifel an der historischen Wahrheit der Heiligen Schrift aufgekommen ließ und eine auf christlichen Dogmen beruhende Moral ablehnte. Für sein bekanntestes Werk Das Leben Jesu wurde Renan zunächst scharf angegriffen und 1863 sogar vorübergehend als Professor entlassen. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        6 (5 eigenh.) Briefe m. Unterschrift (Koenig Bey).

      Zus. 17 S., 8 u. 4. [...] Kurz bevor er achtzehn wurde, reiste Nubar nach Ägypten, wo er bei Boghos Bey, der zu diesem Zeitpunkt Handels- und Außenminister war, eine Stelle als Sekretär erhielt. Nach einer achtzehnmonatigen Ausbildung wurde er zum zweiten Sekretär von Muhammad Ali Pascha befördert. 1845 wurde er Erster Sekretär von dessen Adoptivsohn und Erben Ibrahim Pascha, den er auf Reisen durch Europa begleitete. Als Abbas Pascha 1848 Khedive, d.h. Vizekönig von Ägypten, wurde, übernahm er Nubar in seinen Dienst und schickte ihn 1850 als seinen Vermittler nach London, um mit dem ottomanischen Sultan zu verhandeln. Da er erfolgreich war, wurde er zum Bey ernannt. 1853 wurde er für ähnliche Verhandlungen nach Wien geschickt, wo er anschließend bis zum Tod von Abbas im Juli 1854 lebte. Der neue Vizekönig Muhammad Said entließ ihn aus seinem Amt, ernannte ihn aber zwei Jahre später zu seinem Chefsekretär. Zudem übergab er ihm die Verantwortung für die Transportgeschäfte zwischen Ägypten und Indien. In diesem Bereich engagierte sich Nubar hauptsächlich für die Fertigstellung der Eisenbahn zwischen Kairo und Sues. Said entließ ihn noch ein zweites Mal, schickte ihn dann aber wieder nach Wien, bevor er seinen Posten als erster Sekretär wieder zurückerhielt. Nach dem Tod von Said im Januar 1863 wurde Ismail Pascha neuer Khedive. Mit ihm war Nubar befreundet, hatte ihm nach eigenen Aussagen sogar das Leben gerettet. Ismail sandte ihn als Vermittler nach Konstantinopel, wo er den Weg für die Pläne des neuen Vizekönigs ebnen sollte, zu denen unter anderem die Fertigstellung des Sueskanal gehörte. Wegen seiner Erfolge wurde Nubar zum Pascha ernannt. Nubar reiste nach Paris, um Streitigkeiten des französischen Reichs mit Ägypten beizulegen. Nach seiner Rückkehr aus Paris wurde er Ägyptens erster Minister für staatliche Bauvorhaben, eine Abteilung, die er erst aufbauen musste. 1866 wurde er zum Außenminister ernannt. Ab 1867 kam es auf seine Veranlassung zu Verhandlungen zwischen der ägyptischen Regierung und einer Reihe von europäischen Ländern, die 1876 zur Schaffung der Gemischten Gerichtshöfe in Ägypten führten. Ismail hatte das Land durch seine verschwenderische Vorgehensweise an den Rand eines Insolvenz gebracht. Er wurde schließlich von Großbritannien und Frankreich gezwungen, sich die Regierung mit Nubar, Charles Rivers Wilson als Finanzminister und dem Marquis de Blignières als Minister für staatliche Bauvorhaben zu teilen (Wikipedia). --- Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878).

        Vermischte Schriften botanischen Inhalts.

      Tübingen, Ludwig Friedrich Fues, 1845. 4to (27.2 x 22.2 cm). viii, 442 pp., 13 lithographed plates of which five are partly or completely hand-coloured. 19th century half-cloth over marbled boards. Spine with gilt title.l First collected edition of von Mohl's great classical works and the beginning of modern biology, and of great rarety. Dibner, Herals of Science: "With the use of improved microscopes and techniques the broader became the understanding of the basic elements forming living tissue. Hugo von Mohl (1805-1872), professor of botany at Tübingen, gave the name protoplasm to the mucilagenous material within the plant cell adjacent to the membrane, a term that has grown to connote living substance and the founder of plant cytology". "In the early nineteenth century, however, the study of plant cells was revived, notably in Germany by Treviranus and von Mohl" (PMM). As usual some foxing in the text due to the quality of the paper, but the plates are good. This work contains 31 papers originally published elsewhere, sometimes revised or expanded. Light spotting in the text, top corner of plates a bit cockled, otherwise a very good, unmarked copy. Dibner, 32; PMM, p. 175; Stafleu and Cowan, 6187.

        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, Pecten, Haliotis, Trochus, Solen, Littorina, Venus, Natica, Helix, Bulimus, Achatina, Nerita, Strombus, etc., etc. The Veneridae, Arcidae, Helicidae (s.l.), Melaniidae, Trochidae, Bulimidae, Unionidae, Tellinidae, and Fasciolariidae are particularly well-represented. As are the Littorinidae. 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. Fortunately, a former owner has added, in small, light pencil, a continuous numbering, also added in the indexes, making the indexes a great deal more useful. 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, complete set. Caprotti, p. 210; Nissen ZBI, 3154.

        An original design for a porcelain plate

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Very good condition apart from some light soiling. 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." ( Grove Dictionary of Art ).

By the Late Proprietor, William Jones, Esq. M.D M.R.C.S. L.S.A. A.C.E. etc. etc.

      London: Sherwood and Co., 137, Strand. And Sherwood, Gilbert, and Piper, Paternoster Row, 1845..

First edition. There was enormous public interest in the ideas surrounding atmospheric railways in England in the 1840s. Several experimental rail lines were built and many of their runs were public. Disadvantages (rats were a big problem) outweighed advantages and these railway schemes using air pressure generated by a static power source to propel the train pneumatically were abandoned. There is a long Wikipedia article about atmospheric railways that is informative and interesting reading. Interlibrum 270 #191. Bromley Library bookplate affixed to the front paste-down and their small printed label and withdrawn stamp on the front free endpaper (no other indications of library ownership), a very good copy.

"Joseph Story's work on promissory notes was the last of his great treatises. (...)

        Physiologische Wärmeerscheinungen. Der Inhalt der Schrift über die Erhaltung der Kraft" in Die Fortschritte der Physik im Jahre 1847, 1850, pp. 233-245

      Druck und Verlag von G. Reimer, Berlin - FIRST EDITION OF HELMHOLTZ'S FIRST FULLY COMPREHENSIVE STATEMENT OF THE FIRST LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS - that energy can be converted from one form to another with the interaction of heat, work and internal energy, but it cannot be created nor destroyed, under any circumstances. In 1845, in a paper on animal heat that predated this one by two years, Helmholtz made his first statement on his 'conservation of force'; he would later note that his 1845 findings really belonged in the work offered here, his 1847 fully detailed statement (Garber, The Language of Physics, 293). Note that in a separate listing, we offer both the 1845 and 1847 volumes together; this listing, again, is for the 1847 comprehensive statement. In the 1845 review paper on animal heat, Helmholtz noted that "'if we substitute the motion theory of heat for the material theory of heat, we see heat as originating from mechanical force'" (Garber). From this, Helmholtz believed it followed that "chemical electrical, and mechanical force were equivalent; in the 1847 paper, he would present the experimental evidence that would demonstrate this (Garber). "Throughout the 1840s Helmholtz educated himself in higher mathematics, initially to understand how to use mathematics in physiology? The closeness of his work in physiology and physics is illustrated in his work on conservation of force. The principle itself was actually stated in a review paper [the prior paper] on animal heat in 1845. After surveying work done by Davy and Lavoisier on the issue, he examined Leibig's paper on the origins of animal heat" (Koenigsberger, Hermann von Helmholtz, 34). "The presupposition of vitalism, that there is an inexhaustible "vital force" that powers living bodies, had led some investigators to posit that there is an inexhaustible force, whether mechanical or not, that can power a machine indefinitely: a perpetual motion machine" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). "Stating that it was of interest to physics in general as much as physiology, Helmholtz asserted that the principle of the constancy of force-equivalence was already used as the foundation of mathematical theories. As examples he [here] cites Carnot's and Clapyeron's determination of the work contained in a given quantity of heat and Neumann's theory of currents induced by moving magnets. Helmholtz took his principle of 'conservation of force' as empirically grounded and 'theoretically stated and well known'. "The material theory of heat was doomed" (Garber). Helmholtz "states without hesitation that the material theory of heat is no longer tenable, and that a kinetic theory must be substituted for it, since heat originates in mechanical forces, either directly by friction or indirectly from an electrical current produced by the motion of magnets. This conception of heat as a motion involves the conclusion that mechanical, electrical and chemical forces must always be the definite equivalent of one and the same energy, whatever the mode by which one force is transformed into another" (Koenigsberger). CONDITION & DETAILS: Druck und Verlag von G. Reimer. 8vo. (9 x 5.75 inches; 225 x 144mm). Complete volume. Ex-libris bearing only a stamp on the front flyleaf and the rear of the title page; there is an old paper label on the spine (see photo).

        Tabulae Phycologicae oder Abbildungen der Tange.

      Nordhausen, gedruckt auf Kosten des Verfassers, 1845-1871. 19 volumes. 8vo (215 x 135mm). With 1900 (one plate is a drawing) lithographed plates, printed in one colour and explanatory text. Contemporary uniform half calf, spines with gilt letterering. A very scare work printed in a very small edition. No complete copies have been offered for sale since decades. Dr. W. Junk offered a complete copy in his Rara catalogue and priced it M. 1000 one of the most expensive items in his catalogue. A few copies were issued with the plates coloured by the author. The present copy has an important provenance and has the bookplate of Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius (1794-1868), famous German botanical traveller. /Friedrich Traugott Kützing (1807-1893) was a German algologist and teacher at Nordhausen. "In the Tabulae, each volume of which contains 100 plates engraved by Kützing himself, 4,407 species and forms, exclusive of diatoms and desmids, were illustrated. Even today this work still continues to be the best reference on the habit of many species of algae" (D.S.B.)./"Das Werk ist ganz auf Kosten des Verf. Erschienen… Aber alle Arbeit und alles Risico in jeder Beziehung lastete auf dem Autor, der trotz der politischen so ungünstigen Jahrzehnte des Erscheinens des Werkes und trotz vieler persönlicher Unglücksfälle - es ist ergreifend, was er darüber im Vorwort des XI. Bandes schreibt - seine Aufgabe in verhältnismässig raschem Tempo zu Ende führte. Denn die Tabulae' sind - eine Seltenheit bei einem derartig grossen Unternehmen, und noch dazu bei einem, das nur den einen Verfasser hat, - zu Ende gebracht worden… Das Werk ist ausserordentlich selten geworden, besonders aber die letzten Bände" (Junk. Rara p. 139). The book has occasional foxing especially to the text, the plates printed on thicker paper are less affected.//Provenance: Bookplate of C.F.Ph. Martius and library and cancelled stamp on titles.//Stafleu & Cowan 3978 'The book is very rare'. Nissen BBI, 1108.
