        Collection of 52 botanical watercolour drawings, mostly signed "v.d. H."]. [Utrecht], 1878-1879, 1893. Collection of 52 drawings, containing 46 watercolour drawings on wove and laid paper (most measuring ca. 31.5 x 20), with plant name, date and signature "v.d. H." added in manuscript, 1 double-page watercolour of grasses, 4 smaller sketches in pencil, and 2 pen and in ink drawings, one showing a cross-section of a live sponge, and the other a small caricature of gentleman (Van der Harst?) standing between animated plants and flowers, smelling a flower. Contemporary portfolio, made from 2 paperboards.

      - For Van der Harst: NNBW I, pp. 1028-1029. Collection of well-executed botanical drawings of indigenous Dutch plants, mostly herbs, by the Utrecht botany and pharmacology teacher and skilled amateur artist, Dr. Leendert Johannes van der Harst (1846-1897). Although the manuscript itself does not name him, most of the drawings are initialed "v. d. H." and the front board of the portfolio has his ink stamp. The herbs are often accompanied by small plant details and all have some manuscript explanatory text. The names of the plants are added in Latin and other observations in Dutch. Van der Harst studied medicine and pharmacology in Middelburg then took a doctorate at the Deventer Academy to teach botony, zoology, geology and mineralogy in middle-schools. Before taking his degrees he worked in apothecaries in both cities. He found his calling as a teacher in Utrecht, first at the Rijks Hoogere Burgerschool (1869) and then at the Veterinary School (1873), where he taught botany, pharmacology and other subjects. He used his considerable artistic talent to illustrate his lectures. He was also chairman of the Utrecht chapter of the Dutch Society for Horticulture and Botany.Some faint occasional foxing, otherwise in good condition. One of the cloth ties is broken at the hinge and their external parts are faded.

        Bemerkungen zu meiner Theorie des farbigen Lichtes der Doppelsterne etc. mit vorzüglicher Rücksicht auf die von Herrn Dr. Ballot zu Utrecht dagegen erhobenen Bedenken" in Annalen der Physik, 68, 5, 1846, pp. 1-35

      HANDSOMELY BOUND FIRST EDITION OF DOPPLER'S 1846 PAPER EXTENDING HIS EPOCHAL 1842 PAPER ON THE DOPPLER SHIFT TO INCLUDE THE MOTION OF BOTH THE OBSERVER & THE SOURCE. While Christian Johann Doppler contributed many papers on mathematics and electricity, "his scientific fame rests… on the discovery of what was later called 'Doppler's principle', an equation relating the observed frequency of a propagating wave to the relative motion of the observer with respect to the source of vibration. "The Doppler Theory/Doppler shift is of monumental applicability and importance, providing the foundation for sonar and radar, as well as for the general acceptance of the cosmological theory of the Big Bang (showing how the shift in the spectra of astronomical entities allows for the measurement of the rate of recession relative to the Earth" (Roguin, "Christian Doppler, the Man Behind the Effect", The British Journal of Radiology, 75 (2002), 615-619). Doppler gave the first formulation of this principle in the 1842 paper announcing what came to be called the Doppler effect, or "the relation of the frequency of a source to its velocity relative to an observer. He derived his principle by treating both light and sound as longitudinal waves in the ether and matter, respectively. He pointed out that sound waves from a source moving toward an observer reach the observer at a greater frequency than if the source is stationary, thus increasing the observed frequency and raising the pitch of the sound. Similarly [he argued] sound waves from a source moving away from the observer reach the observer more slowly, resulting in a decreased frequency and a lowering of pitch" (Leiter, A to Z of Physicists, 76). Furthermore, in the 1842 Doppler paper he hypothesized "that his principle would apply to any wave motion, including motion of light waves, and predicted that this would be of particular value to astronomers" (ibid 77). And he was right. The first experimental test of Doppler's initial principle came in 1845 and affirmed his hypothesis. In 1846 and in this paper, Doppler applied the lessons of the 1845 test and generalized his "formula in order to take into account the motion of both the observer and the source" (ibid). Doppler applies his new formula to three different situations: In the first, Doppler "illustrates the consequences of his principle in acoustics, [assuming] explosion-like disturbances moving on a straight or curved line with a velocity slower, equal to, or faster than the sound velocity of the surrounding medium" (Krehl, History of Shock Waves, 1068). In Doppler's second example, he uses "Huygens' principle of constructing wave fronts by sources of secondary spherical wavelets, treated also two cases of disturbances moving with accelerated and decelerated supersonic velocities along a straight line, which resulted in a concave and convex cone geometry, respectively. "Doppler's third example describes a supersonic disturbance moving on a circle that, seen from the center of rotation, results in a concave shaped head wave geometry" (ibid). Later, a French physicist, Armand Hippolyte Louis Fizeau made one of the first measurements of the velocity of light [and] generalized Doppler's work by applying his theory not only to sound but also to light" (Roguin, 619). NOTE: We offer separately, Slipher's 1915 first measurement of Doppler-shift. The paper is entitled "Spectrographic Observations of Nebulae" and appears in Popular Astronomy, 23, 1, 1915, pp. 21-24. CONDITION & DETAILS: Leipzig: Barth. 8vo. (8 x 5 inches; 200 x 125mm). Full volume. Small ex-libris stamps on the preliminaries and a small, discreet one at the head of the Doppler paper. Complete. [4] viii, [582], 4. Three fold-out plates. Very handsomely rebound in three-quarter black calf over marbled paper boards. Tight, solid, and very clean. Very good to near fine condition.

        LE MONDE TEL QU'IL SERA ..

      Paris: Edite par W. Coquebert, n.d. [1846].. Small quarto, pp. [1-4] 1-324, engraved illustrations by Bertall, O. Penguilly and St.-Germain, ten on inserted plates, numerous others in the text, original pictorial brown cloth, front and rear panels stamped in blind and gold, spine panel stamped in gold, a.e.g., yellow coated endpapers. First edition. Versins calls this the first detailed forecast of the future (aside perhaps from Webb's THE MUMMY, 1827) to explore the malignant repercussions of advancing technology. With its extravagant and grotesque illustrations, it makes a fitting bookend to Robida's LA VINGTIEME SIECLE (1883), steam versus electricity, to bracket the first flowering of French dystopian literature, serving as a model, despite its faults, of all the futuristic nightmares that followed, even into the twentieth century (Versins, pp. 822-824). Souvestre projects Marthe and Maurice, his observers from the present day, into the year 3000 and sets them down in Tahiti, where scantily-clad people live in a machine-ridden age. Pipes dispense not only water in homes but fire, light and fresh air. An endless roll of newsprint displays the breaking news of the hour (sound like the Internet?). The very clouds are mined for water and electricity. Infants are handed over to steam-operated feeding machines before being classified by phrenologists and assigned a purpose in life corresponding to their physiognomy. They are then moved to greenhouses where the correct degree of heat ensures the maturation of their brains. All learning is based on the memorization of mnemonic devices. Criminals are either given very lenient or very severe treatment, the latter sent to solitary confinement until they have devolved into complete stupefaction. The technology of 3000 is dominated by steam (including steam-powered shoes) and balloons. Fanciful flying machines present some of the most charming images. Versins credits the little-known Charles Nodier's 1833 compositions, HURLUBLEU and LEVIATHAN-LE-LONG as influences on Souvestre. Versins, Encyclopédie de l'Utopie, des Voyages Extraordinaires, et de la Science Fiction, pp. 822-24. Cloth just a bit faded, endpapers a trifle oxidized, considerable foxing to half title and title leaves and last few leaves, otherwise a remarkably clean copy with virtually no foxing to most of the text block and no darkened plates. By far the best copy we have seen. (#154749)

        THE CHEROKEE MESSENGER, VOL. I [Nos. 1-12] [caption title]

      [Breadtown], Indian Territory: Baptist Mission Press, 1846. 192pp., with one original front wrapper tipped in. Contemporary half cloth and marbled boards, chipped paper spine label. Boards slightly rubbed, moderate edge and corner wear. Contemporary manuscript gift inscription and table of contents on front free endpaper, later bookplate on front pastedown. Very good. A very rare complete run of the first series of "Oklahoma's earliest periodical" - Hargrett. The Baptist Mission Press was established in 1843 at Breadtown, near present-day Westville, and utilized the second printing press brought to Cherokee Nation in the Indian Territory. The Mission was founded in 1839 by Evan Jones, a Welsh Baptist proselytizer and abolitionist, who also edited this publication. The printing press was acquired in July 1843, and a set of Cherokee type in December of the same year, thus making this periodical one of the earliest products of the press. The press completed twelve issues of the MESSENGER between August, 1844, and May, 1846, all present here. The magazine was partially revived in 1858 and 1859 by Jones' son, but only another two or three issues were ever produced. The preponderance of content is printed in Cherokee, with mastheads, article titles, and a few of the articles themselves in English. These articles include lessons on Cherokee grammar, missionary obituaries, and reports from local temperance societies. The articles in Cherokee consist principally of religious lessons and long translations of Bible passages. The two illustrations in the text relate to articles about actual Indians, one depicting a Hindu temple and another an elephant. This copy was given by the American consul at Leipzig, John T. Flugel to noted German linguist Hans Conon von der Gabelentz, who later published his own Cherokee grammar. Only one other complete run has appeared on the market in the past century, purchased by this firm for the American Antiquarian Society at the Siebert Sale in 1999.

      London, 1846. Roget, Peter Mark (1779-1869). A.L.s. to R. Hutton. [London], Dec. 23, 1846. 2pp. 180 x 117 mm. Small tear in lower margin, traces of mounting on verso. Roget, the author of Roget's Thesaurus, was also a chess buff who "was fond of exercising his ingenuity in the construction and solution of chess problems . . . To assist persons interested in chess, he contrived and published in 1845 a pocket chessboard, called the 'Economic Chessboard'" (DNB). The present letter concerns a defective copy of the "Chess Board," about which Roget's correspondent had written to complain. Roget responded thatI am much obliged to you for having sent me notice of the mistake in the Chess Board: & have only waited to acknowledge your letter, till I could speak to Longmans on the subject, which I was not able to do till yesterday. They, as well as myself, are quite at a loss to account for the mistake, for as the sheets are all printed off from the same block, & can only be folded in one way, I cannot comprehend how it is possible for the squares to have been reversed. I should, therefore, be much obliged if you would send me the one that is faulty, not only in order that you may be furnished with a correct one instead of it, but also that I may be enabled to trace with whom the fault lies & prevent any future recurrence of it, which would the possibility of which I am anxious to prevent, as it would be extremely detrimental to the sale.

        Esame teoretico pratico sulla Omiopatia

      Napoli, dalla Tipografia Tramater 1846 - BIGEL Gerard Joseph Marie. Esame teoretico pratico sulla Omiopatia del Dottor Bigel. Traduzione dal francese fatta sull'edizione di Varsavia da Nicolò Vincenzo Laraja. Napoli, dalla Tipografia Tramater, 1846. In 8vo; pp.XVIII, 380. Firma autografa del traduttore. Fior. Mezza pelle coeva, titolo e fregi in oro al dorso. Dall'introduzione: "Fra i tanti assennati, che l'han fatto le migliori accoglienze, ed i maggiori ossequi va annoverato il rinomato Dott. Bigel di nazione francese. Costui è quegli che con questa sua opera, e con altre di egual merito ha saputo così ben esporre la nuova dottrina medica di Hahnemann (fondatore della Omiopatia), illustrarla con fatti incontrastabili, con saggi ragionamenti dimostrare la ragionevolezza dei suoi principi fondamentali, e della pratica al letto dell'infermo, che ne fa toccare con mani la verità, la chiarezza, l'utilità, la facilità, non risparmiando studi, e sperimenti. Può chiamarsi l'apologista per eccellenza dell'omiopatia, imparziale, giusto, eloquente più che ogni altro. Il traduttore colla versione ha inteso di secondare gli umani disegni di Hahnemann, le benefiche mire di Bigel, lo zelo pietoso della lunga classe dei proseliti omiopatici, affinchè non rimanga mezzo, e via, a diffondere in tutti, e da per tutto il salutare metodo curativo, l'Anemanniano favore". Il dottor Gerard Joseph Marie Bigel (1764-1832) nato in Francia, studiò presso l'École de Médecine di Strasburgo, venne a conoscenza e adottò il nuovo metodo curativo durante un viaggio in Germania al seguito del Granduca Costantino di Russia. Successivamente praticò l'omeopatia a San Pietroburgo e a Varsavia dove nel 1827 pubblicò per la prima volta un'opera in tre volumi in francese sulle teorie e i metodi del dottor Hahnemann.

      New York: Wiley and Putnam, 1846.. 12mo, two volumes: pp. [1-6] [1] 2-207 [208: blank]; [1-6] [1] 2-211 [212: blank], half title leaves present, contemporary mid-nineteenth century three-quarter black calf and green and black marbled boards, spine panel lettered and ruled in gold. First edition, first printings of both volumes. An early rebind (without the original wrappers) of first printing sheets with Smith and Craighead imprints present on both copyright pages and page [212] of volume two blank (in later printings page [212] is used as the title page for a publisher's catalogue). The second of Hawthorne's three major collections of short fiction published in his lifetime, and the best and most important of the three. Includes a number of classics, "The Birth-Mark," "Young Goodman Brown," "Rappaccini's Daughter" and "The Artist of the Beautiful." The other fantasy stories are "A Select Party," "Mrs. Bullfrog," "The Hall of Fantasy," "The Celestial Railroad," "The New Adam and Eve," "Egotism; or the Bosom Friend," "The Christmas Banquet," "Roger Malvin's Burial," "P.'s Correspondence," "Earth's Holocaust," and "A Virtuoso's Collection." "P.'s Correspondence," appears to be the first American alternate history story. "The darkness of his vision of the human psyche gives to almost everything he wrote, even works which were not supernatural fiction or fantasy, a sense that its protagonists are acting in obedience to the Gothic manipulations of the dead but shaping past, that they can never simply flourish in the here and now. It is in something like this sense that so much of his work seems to have been treated as allegory: his characters are so in bondage to the stories they have been appointed to undergo that they seem to 'stand' in an allegorical relationship to symbolic events, rather than to live them ... In the end, the Hawthorne romance of predetermination casts a long shadow over the American Dream, telling us that we must both dream very hard and surrender absolutely." - Clute and Grant (eds), The Encyclopedia of Fantasy (1997), p. 457.

        Life of the Amir Dost Mohammed Khan of Kabul:

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans,, 1846. With his Political Proceedings towards the English, Russian, and Persian Governments, including the Victory and Disasters of the British Army in Afghanistan. 2 volumes, octavo. Publisher's green fine-combed cloth, title gilt to spines, blind panelling and central lozenge to boards, mid-cream surface-paper endpapers. 19 lithographic portraits, printed on India paper and mounted. Very slightly rubbed, some offsetting from the plates, but overall a superb set in the original cloth. First edition of perhaps the key source for political and diplomatic background to the first Afghan War. Mohan Lal was "Bokhara" Burnes's most important intelligence operative, travelling extensively in Persia and Afghanistan and running a string of agents for the British. In 1841, as the situation in Kabul became critical, Lal tried to warn Burnes of the fact that he was the focus of rising discontent, but the Englishman foolishly believed that he would be able to talk his way out of the situation. Lal escaped the ensuing bloodbath, continuing to supply information from the Afghan capital. In 1844 he visited Scotland to return some papers to the Burnes family, the Montrose Review describing him then in glowing, if condescending, terms: "He is a very handsome man, of 28 years; and, when arrayed in the costly and gorgeous costume of his country, affords a favourable specimen of the Asiatic. But this is the least of his merits: his countenance beams with intelligence, and his intercourse with Europeans has enabled him to adapt himself, with perfect tact, to all their habits and modes of thinking, so that he can sustain with ease and propriety his part in any general conversation. We understand he has been urgently recalled to London." He remained in London for some time, the present work being written there and dedicated with permission to Queen Victoria, but he never received the recognition from the British government that he felt he deserved. As a result of his service in Muslim countries, he had been excommunicated by the Kashmiri Pandit community, eventually converting to Islam. He died an isolated and embittered man in Delhi in 1877.

(leicht bestoßen, Einbanddeckel fleckig, innen etwas braunfleckig und fast durchgehende Bräunung im Rand, leicht eselsohrig, sonst innen sauber und im Ganzen ordentlich erhalten) Erste Ausgabe. Äußerst selten! Bei unserer online-Recherche konnten wir weltweit nur_ein Exemplar in der Württembergischen Landesbibliothek Stuttgart nachweisen. Carl Adolph Ludwig Koch (Westerhofen / Hannover 1804 - nach 1876) war Dr. med. und Dr. phil., ab 1836 Ortsarmenarzt in Laichingen / Württemberg und Besitzer der Laichinger Privat-Irrenanstalt. Koch richtet sich in seiner Schrift an die Eltern, gibt Anweisungen für die (damals übliche) Hausgeburt, zur \"Behandlung der scheintodten, neugebornen Kinder\", zum Stillen und zur Behandlung der Kinderkrankheiten. Im Teil über \"Schädliche Behandlung der Kinder\" wendet er sich gegen bis weit ins 20. Jahrhundert geübte Bräuche. Wir erfahren, daß auch damals Mütter ihre Kinder verhungern ließen und Koch äußert - nicht nur in Bezug auf die Hygiene - durchaus moderne Ansichten. - Vgl.

        Temple of Wady Saboua, Nubia.

      Sketches in Egypt and Nubia, from Drawings made on the Spot., 1846-9.. Pl. 17. Tinted lithograph (two tints). Original hand colouring. Very good condition. Subscribers Edition Size: 35 x 25.5 cm. (14 x 10 inches) Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel). These lithographs were originally published in twenty parts, most parts containing six plates, the price for each part with coloured plates (the most expensive state) being 3 guineas.
