      - 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."

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.

        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).

"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.

        Sun Pictures in Scotland

      London, 1845. Quarto. 23 salt prints from calotype negatives, mounted on 17 sheets with hand-ruled borders and manuscript numbering. Title within and ornamental border, 2pp. letterpress list of plates. Without the Notice to the Reader slip found in some copies. Fading to images as usual. Publisher's light purple cloth, upper cover stamped in gilt, rebacked retaining the original spine, yellow endpapers. Housed in a full dark red morocco box.An incunable of photography: the first photographically illustrated work to be published in book form.Published in July or August 1845, William Henry Fox Talbot's Sun Pictures in Scotland is widely recognized as the first photographically illustrated book completed for public sale. Issued between the fourth and fifth installments of Talbot's Pencil of Nature , the edition size of Sun Pictures was quite small. Unlike The Pencil of Nature, it was not available through booksellers but rather sold strictly by subscription. The list of subscribers comprised approximately 100 names, including Queen Victoria.Talbot's principal intention here was to demonstrate photography's potential as a documentary medium. The result, however, was the first themed photobook.Sun Pictures in Scotland depicts Talbot's travels through the region in October 1844, inspired by the life and writings of Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832). The 1830s and 1840s was a period of intense interest in the Scottish poet. The 200-foot-high Scott Monument in Edinburgh was nearly completed when Talbot photographed it, and he included it as the second plate in Sun Pictures."In Sun Pictures Talbot takes his viewers on a visual pilgrimage to scenes intimately associated with Scott's life and writings ... From the outset, Sun Pictues in Scotland was planned to appeal to friends, acquaintances and relations in the fashionable circle of Lady Elisabeth Fielding, Talbots' mother. It was her self-appointed task to persuade them to subscribe in advance of publication and surviving lists give some sense of this society ... Sun Pictures served a very different function from The Pencil of Nature , being mostly intended to bring Talbot's achievements to notice among high society. Unremarked by the wider world, the book disappeared without a trace in to the libraries and drawing rooms of its aristocratic subscribers. WIth its narrowly focused goal and limited number of copies distributed only to subscribers, Sun Pictures in Scotland remains one of the most enigmatic of all Talbot's photographic ventures. Nevertheless, it can reasonably claim to be the first photographic essay in the history of the medium" (Taylor).The uneven quality of the plates in nearly all copies of Sun Pictures is due to the unfavorable environmental conditions in which they were made. Indeed, many prints began deteriorating immediately. According to Talbot scholar Larry J. Schaaf, fewer than 25 copies of Sun Pictures in Scotland are believed extant. Schaaf locates at least nine in institutional collections, including The J. Paul Getty Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The New York Public Library, and The University Library, St. Andrews. Only a handful of copies have appeared at auction since 1970.NYPL 2; Truthful Lens 161; Gernsheim 7; Taylor, Impressed by Light , pp. 21-22.

        Liasse de manuscrits, lettres et documents autographes signés de Jean-Baptiste Philibert Vaillant

      1845 - 17 lettres autographes, la plupart sur papier à en-tête du Ministère de la Guerre de 1845 ou il s'occupe des fortifications de Paris jusqu'en 1859 ou il est Ministre de la Guerre et préside aux affectations, ordres du jour et conciliabules sur des questions stratégiques. Jean-Baptiste Philibert Vaillant (Dijon, 6 décembre 1790 - Paris, 4 juin 1872) est un homme politique et militaire français, qui fut Maréchal de France en 1851, puis sénateur en 1852, ministre de la Guerre de 1854 à 1859, ministre de la maison de l'Empereur de 1860 à 1870, et ministre des Beaux-Arts de 1863 à 1870. Élève de l'École polytechnique en 1807, puis de l'école du génie de Metz, dont il sort en 1809, il fait ses premières armes à Dantzig en 1811. Commandant l'École polytechnique en 1839 et 1840, il est chargé des nouvelles fortifications de Paris. C'est à Vaillant que le général Haxo confie ses projets d'amélioration ou de travaux neufs. Aide de camp du général Haxo, dont il épousa la veuve en 1843, Jean-Baptiste Vaillant le suit avec la Grande Armée. En 1812, il rencontre Napoléon à Marienwerder. Le 30 août 1813, il est fait prisonnier à Kulm (aujourd'hui Chelmno en Pologne) avec Haxo et Vandamme. Libéré à la paix, il rejoint Napoléon pendant les Cent jours, combat à Ligny, puis à Waterloo, avant de participer à la défense de Paris, au cours de laquelle il est blessé. Chef de bataillon en 1826, Jean-Baptiste Vaillant prend part au 1830 à l'expédition d'Alger qui lui vaut une nouvelle blessure. Après la campagne de Belgique, qu'il suit avec le grade de lieutenant-colonel, il est de nouveau en Algérie en 1837, chargé de la direction des fortifications à Alger. Maréchal de camp en 1838, il est nommé deux ans plus tard à la direction des fortifications de Paris et accomplit un travail considérable. Lieutenant-Général en 1845 puis inspecteur général jusqu'en 1848, le général Vaillant reçoit, au mois de mai 1849, lors de l'expédition de Rome, le commandement des troupes du génie. L'habileté avec laquelle il dirige le siège de la ville éternelle lui vaut le bâton de maréchal en décembre 1851. Titulaire de la grand-croix de la Légion d'honneur en 1849, le maréchal Vaillant entre à l'Académie des sciences en 1853. Il est sénateur, grand maréchal du palais de l'Empereur, comte et enfin ministre de la Guerre en 1854. Sénateur en janvier 1852, puis Grand Maréchal du palais, fonction qu'il occupa pendant la presque totalité du Second Empire (1852 - 1870), Vaillant est ministre de la guerre de mars 1854 à mai 1859. Pendant cinq ans jusqu'à son remplacement, il travaille à la réorganisation de l'armée et des récoltes militaires. Membre du Conseil privé, il exerce le commandement en chef de l'armée d'Italie en 1859 contre les Autrichiens. Il signe, le 8 juillet de cette même année, la suspension d'armes qui précède l'armistice de Villafranca. En 1860, le maréchal Vaillant est nommé ministre de la Maison de l'Empereur, charge qu'il occupe jusqu'à la chute du Second Empire. De 1863 à 1870, il est aussi ministre des Beaux-Arts, membre du Conseil privé. De plus, de 1858 à 1870, il préside le Conseil général de la Côte-d'Or, son département natal. Lorsque la guerre de 1870 éclate, le maréchal Vaillant donne sa démission de tous les emplois qu'il occupait auprès de l'Empereur. Il reçoit l'ordre de quitter Paris, puis la France. Réfugié en Espagne en septembre 1870, il regagna la France en juin 1871. Il fit plusieurs legs à sa ville natale de Dijon, où il est inhumé. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Sun Pictures in Scotland

      London 1845 - 23 salt prints from calotype negatives, mounted on 17 sheets with hand-ruled borders and manuscript numbering. Title within and ornamental border, 2pp. letterpress list of plates. Without the Notice to the Reader slip found in some copies. Fading to images as usual. Publisher's light purple cloth, upper cover stamped in gilt, rebacked retaining the original spine, yellow endpapers. Housed in a full dark red morocco box. An incunable of photography: the first photographically illustrated work to be published in book form. Published in July or August 1845, William Henry Fox Talbot's Sun Pictures in Scotland is widely recognized as the first photographically illustrated book completed for public sale. Issued between the fourth and fifth installments of Talbot's Pencil of Nature , the edition size of Sun Pictures was quite small. Unlike The Pencil of Nature, it was not available through booksellers but rather sold strictly by subscription. The list of subscribers comprised approximately 100 names, including Queen Victoria. Talbot's principal intention here was to demonstrate photography's potential as a documentary medium. The result, however, was the first themed photobook. Sun Pictures in Scotland depicts Talbot's travels through the region in October 1844, inspired by the life and writings of Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832). The 1830s and 1840s was a period of intense interest in the Scottish poet. The 200-foot-high Scott Monument in Edinburgh was nearly completed when Talbot photographed it, and he included it as the second plate in Sun Pictures. "In Sun Pictures Talbot takes his viewers on a visual pilgrimage to scenes intimately associated with Scott's life and writings . From the outset, Sun Pictues in Scotland was planned to appeal to friends, acquaintances and relations in the fashionable circle of Lady Elisabeth Fielding, Talbots' mother. It was her self-appointed task to persuade them to subscribe in advance of publication and surviving lists give some sense of this society . Sun Pictures served a very different function from The Pencil of Nature , being mostly intended to bring Talbot's achievements to notice among high society. Unremarked by the wider world, the book disappeared without a trace in to the libraries and drawing rooms of its aristocratic subscribers. WIth its narrowly focused goal and limited number of copies distributed only to subscribers, Sun Pictures in Scotland remains one of the most enigmatic of all Talbot's photographic ventures. Nevertheless, it can reasonably claim to be the first photographic essay in the history of the medium" (Taylor). The uneven quality of the plates in nearly all copies of Sun Pictures is due to the unfavorable environmental conditions in which they were made. Indeed, many prints began deteriorating immediately. According to Talbot scholar Larry J. Schaaf, fewer than 25 copies of Sun Pictures in Scotland are believed extant. Schaaf locates at least nine in institutional collections, including The J. Paul Getty Museum, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, The New York Public Library, and The University Library, St. Andrews. Only a handful of copies have appeared at auction since 1970.
