        Voyage au Pole Sud et dans L'Oceanie sure les corvettes L'Astrolabe et la Zelee. Anthropologie - Geologie.

      Paris: Gide et J. Baudry, 1842-1847. - DUMONT D'URVILLE, Jules Sebastien Cesar (1790-1842). Voyage au Pole Sud et dans L'Oceanie sure les corvettes L'Astrolabe et la Zelee pendant les annees 1837-1838-1839-1840 sous le commandement de M. Dumont-D'Urville Capitaine de Vaisseau - Anthropologie - Geologie. Paris: Gide et J. Baudry, 1842-1847. ATLAS VOLUME ONLY. Folio (21 4/8 x 14 inches). Anthropologie - 47 tinted lithographed plates of life-masks, skulls and cranial cross-sections, and 3 engraved plates; Geologie - 2 double-page engraved maps and 2 full-page maps hand-coloured in part and 9 lithographed plates of views and specimens (plates loose, one or two with frayed edges not affecting the images). Contemporary maroon backed, marbled paper boards, gilt (detached). The important anthropological and geological atlas volume to Dumont D’Urville’s third voyage of exploration to the South Pacific, which left Toulon late in 1837 in the Astrolabe and the Zélée. Their aim was to voyage as far south as possible, surpassing the latitude of Weddell, and so claim the South Magnetic Pole for the French. Then they would pass through the Strait of Magellan, voyage up the coast of Chile and across to Western Australia, on to Hobart, New Zealand, then the East Indies, round the Cape of Good Hope and return in France. In the event they were delayed and spent too long in the Strait of Magellan before heading south and ended up entangled in ice-bergs struggling towards the South Orkney Islands, followed by the South Shetland Islands and finally Bransfield Strait, before conditions onboard became so bad that he returned north to Talcahuano, in Chile, where they established a temporary hospital for the crew members affected by scurvy. A more gentle exploration of the Pacific led the Astrolabe and Zelee to the Marquesas, the East Indies, and on to Tasmania where they were greeted by the then governor of Tasmania, later the celebrated but tragic arctic explorer, Sir John Franklin. Unfortunately Dumont D’Urville learned from Franklin that the American explorer Charles Wilkes was in Sydney preparing to voyage south. Inspired by the competition, Dumont D’Urville determined to head south in spite of the depletion of his crew. By January of 1840 they had crossed the Antarctic Circle and sighted land. They hoisted the Ticolour at Pointe Géologie and named the land beyond for France, Terre Adélie (Adélie Land). Sightings of Wilkes’ vessel the Porpoise were recorded, but they returned via New Zealand, the Torres Strait, Timor, Réunion, Saint Helena, reaching Toulon, in early November 1840.

        Eigenh. Instruktion mit U.

      München, 1. III. 1847. - 1 S. Qu.-8vo. "An den Polizeydirector. Da bekannt war, ich selbst schriebs dem Polizeydirector, daß um 4 Uhr Nachmittag Studenten hergezogen kamen [?] so hätten zweckmäßige Vorkehrungen getroffen werden sollen. Daß keine Wiederhohlungen weder bey Nacht noch Tag ähnliche Auftritte es gäbe, dem muß vorgebeugt werden. Warnungen, öffentlich, haben zu geschehen, wären sie fruchtlos ist mit dem gehörigen gesetzlichen Ernst zu verfahren. Das Volk darf sich nicht an Aufläufe gewöhnen. Bey Tag und Nacht ist Sorge zu tragen daß nicht nur wo Lola Montez jetzt wohnt sondern auch ihr eigenes Haus beschützt werde. Das alles ist mein ernster Wille [.] Sehr wünschenswerth die Rädelsführer habhaft zu werden." - Nachdem die Äffäre des Bayernkönigs mit der Tänzerin Lola Montez bekannt geworden und das Bestreben des Königs, ihr die bayerische Staatsbürgerschaft zu verleihen, bei seinem Kabinett auf Widerstand gestoßen war, hatten am 11. Februar 1847 sämtliche Minister um ihre Entlassung gebeten; diese folgte am 1. März, am Tag des vorliegenden Schreibens. Unter Schwierigkeiten wurde ein neues Kabinett gebildet und Lola Montez dennoch eingebürgert, was in der Theresienstraße zu Tumulten führte. Am 25. August 1847 wurde sie zur Gräfin von Landsfeld erhoben.

      Pelham Richardson, London 1847 - A large 4to. two volume set in original stamped cloth with gilt decoration on front and rear boards. Both volumes show moderate to heavy rubbing and are reinforced on the spine with black tape. Both volumes loosening from binding in places but gently holding and both contain mimeographed listing of the plates pasted to front or rear flys and dedication page evidently for quick reference. Volume 1 contains 118 text pages followed by 51 single sided full page illustrations of which I believe one (Illustration 37) is an original pen and ink illustration signed with an elaborate E. Volume 2 contains no text, just 107 full page plates 4 of which (illustrations 72-75) I believe are also original ink illustrations signed the same way. Both volumes have fairly minor pencil annotation from a person very familiar with the content. Also included will be a few small sketches of gothic windows found folded within. Above information may lead one to conclude these were authors copies though not sure. More photos upon request. Extra shipping will be required. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A few small holes at corner folds. Very good. A map of the Valley of Mexico, with an inset showing the route between Vera Cruz, Alvarado, and Puebla. Canals, roads, and bodies of water have been handcolored. Size would seem to indicate that this pocket edition is a slightly larger variant edition of the map discussed by Phillips and Rumsey: "Phillips attributes this to J.G. Bruff, although his name is not listed on the map. This is a detailed map of the Valley of Mexico with some of its information and profile taken from the larger Disturnell 'Treaty Map'" - Rumsey.

        VIEW FROM UNDER THE PORTICO OF TEMPLE OF EDFOU. UPPER EGYPT [An Excellent View of the Temple's Famous Inscriptions, with People in the Foreground; Being an Original Hand-Coloured Lithograph From] THE HOLY LAND, SYRIA, IDUMEA, ARABIA, EGYPT AND NUBIA

      London F.G. Moon and Co. 1847 - From the Standard Folio First Edition, limited to 500 sets only. A single original hand-coloured lithographic plate drawn on stone by Louis Haghe after David Roberts' paintings done on location in 1838. Printed on a single folio sheet 23" x 17.5", the captioned image, is 19.25" x 13", now presented in cream mounting boards 30" x 24" glazed behind clear mylar. Beautifully hand-coloured to the highest standards of the time. An example in excellent condition, clean, fresh, beautifully preserved. FROM One of the most desirable of all travel and COLOURplate books. This is an especially attractive plate showing one of the best preserved temples in Egypt. The temple, dedicated to the falcon god Horus, was built in the Ptolemaic period between 237 and 57 BC. The temple is located on the west bank of the Nile in the city of Edfu which was known in Greco-Roman times as Apollonopolis Magna, after the chief god Horus-Apollo. The temple of Edfu is the largest temple dedicated to Horus. We have a good number of impressive images from the Standard Folio Edition of this classic work available for purchase. As well as many views of Egypt there are also views available of Tyre, Nubia, Petra, Sinai, the Jordan, Sidon and Baalbec. Please inquire for further details. 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."

Incipits of all 12 symphonies to title pages of vols. 2-3, 5, and 8-12, with subscription prices in Reichsthaler. On title pages of vols. 1, 4, 6, and 7, incipit staves from no. 8 left blank; filled staves and prices next to them are the same as in vols. 2-3, 5, and 8-12. Title pages are othersie identical. Publisher's blindstamp to title of vols. 1, 3, 4, 6-8, and 10. Caption title "Symphonie" without number through vol. 7; no. 8 with arabic numeral; nos. 9-12 with roman numerals. Caption credits to "J. Haydn" to nos. 8 and 10-12. Publisher's note "Ed. Bote & G. Bock, Berlin" printed at lower right corner of first page of music from vol. 9 on. Notational correction in pencil to p. 108 of no. 6. Bindings slightly worn, rubbed and bumped; spines of vols. 1, 3, and 12 lacking; small stains to vol. 6. A complete set, including first editions in full score, of Hoboken I: 88, 96, and 100, various issues. Hoboken Haydn catalogue III, pp. 17-18 ("Coll. Sy. 5"), with title conforming to the latest of the three given by Hoboken; the imprint allows for dating between 1847 (opening of the Breslau office) and 1866 (liquidation of Scharfenberg & Luis). Hoboken collection catalogue 6: 175 (vol. 11, with mispagination, dated "um 1853"), 234 (vol. 8, misdated "um 1839"), 238 (vol. 10, mislabeled "Erstdruck" and misdated "1839"), 279 (vol. 2, earlier issue with incipits for nos. 1-7 only misdated "1839"), 294 (vol. 1, later issue with incipits for all 12 numbers). The first issues were announced in 1839, and the plate numbers reserved at the same time. Publication, however, seems to have stretched over many years: the first six volumes are listed in Hofmeister 1852, vol. 7 in Hofmeister 1860, and the final five in Hofmeister 1868. The differences in printing quality suggests that vols. 7-12 are first (or early) issues and vols. 1-6 later issues; in vols. 2, 3, and 5, the later issue is confirmed by the presence of all twelve incipits on the title page. The monogram "E.M." cannot be identified, but it is possible that it stands for Eusebius Mandyczewski (1857-1929), the initiator of the first complete edition of Haydn's works. A well- preserved set. Together with: [Hoboken I:97] Symphonien von Joseph Haydn. Partitur... No. 7 C dur... Pr. 1 Thlr. 10 Ngr. [Full score]. Leipzig: Breitkopf & Härtel [PN 9055], [ca. 1855]. Octavo. Black cloth- backed gray boards with blank label to spine and upper. 1f. (title), 59, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved. Handstamp of "Karl Schwager Musikalienhandlung u. Antiquariat Wien" to title. Binding quite worn, rubbed and bumped with portions of cloth spine lacking; front endpaper detached. Somewhat browned; minor blue and graphite pencil markings to title; some pages guarded; pp. 5-16 lacking. First Edition, most probably first issue. Hoboken Haydn catalogue I, p. 196 and III, p. 19 (Coll.Sy.7b; there, date is given as "1855/58"). Hoboken collection catalogue 6, 243. Not in Hirsch or RISM. The list of symphonies on the title page includes nine numbers. The first six scores (Hoboken I: 93, 94, 99, 101, 203, 104) were published in Haydn's lifetime and reissued in 1854. The present number was the first of another six symphonies (Hoboken I: 86, 95, 98, 100, and 102), completed by 1858. The fact that the list on the title ends with "no. 9" and not with "no. 12" allows the dating of the present copy to the short time before the new set was complete.

      Leipzig, 20. VII. 1847. - ¾ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Ew. Wohlgeboren erhalten anliegend den gewünschten Aufsatz Ihren Magazinirungsplan betreffend. Ich hoffe, Sie richtig verstanden zu haben, und wünsche, daß die Darstellung Ihnen genügen mag. Da die kleine Arbeit in mathematischer Hinsicht von keiner großen Bedeutung ist, so bitte ich, wenn Sie davon Gebrauch zu machen beabsichtigen, meinen Namen nicht zu erwähnen [.]". - Moritz Wilhelm Drobisch war bereits mit 24 Jahren Professor der Mathematik an der Universität Leipzig und beschäftigte sich darüber hinaus mit empirischer Philosophie; 1842 erhielt er dann auch einen philosophischen Lehrstuhl. "Drobisch verbreitete die Lehren Johann Friedrich Herbarts und arbeitete vor allem auf dem Gebiet der Logik, wobei er den formalen Charakter der Logik gegenüber dem aufkommenden Psychologismus betonte. Seine 'Neue Darstellung der Logik nach ihren einfachsten Verhältnissen mit Rücksicht auf Mathematik und Naturwissenschaft' (1836) erfuhr mehrere Auflagen [.] Drobisch beschäftigte sich auch mit musikalischen Fragestellungen und veröffentlichte u. a. 'Über die mathematische Bestimmung der musikalischen Intervalle' (1846)" (DBE).

        The First Six Books of the Elements of Euclid in which coloured diagrams and symbols are used instead of letters for the greater ease of learners. By Oliver Byrne

      Small 4to. London: William Pickering, 1847. Small 4to, xxix, 268 pp., color diagrams throughout printed in red, blue, yellow and black; wood-engraved initials. Original half brown morocco, gilt-lettered backstrip, a very bright and clean copy without the usual heavy foxing and staining. First edition of Byrne?s presentation of Euclidean geometry, in which colours are substituted for the usual letters to designate the angles and lines of geometric figures. Tufte?s copy ($15,000, 2010) was described thus: ?BYRNE'S SPECTACULAR RENDERING OF EUCLIDEAN GEOMETRY USING FOUR-COLOR PRINTING. The stark use of primary colors was envisaged by Byrne as a teaching aid. "Each proposition is set in Caslon italic, with a four line initial engraved on wood by Mary Byfield: the rest of the page is a unique riot of red, yellow and blue ... attaining a verve not seen again on book pages till the days of Dufy, Matisse and Derain" (McLean). "Color serves as a label most notably of all in Oliver Byrne's 1847 edition of Euclid's Geometry. This truly visual Euclid discards the letter-coding native to geometry texts. In a proof, each element names itself by consistent shape, color, and orientation; instead of talking about angle DEF, the angle is shown--appropriately enough for geometry" (Tufte, Envisioning Information, p.84). Byrne's depiction of Pythagoras is a classic, with the squares being visually interpreted so in vivid blocks of colour. In a technical tour-de-force, Whittingham skillfully aligned the different color blocks for printing to produce "One of the oddest and most beautiful books of the whole century" (McLean). Against McLean's conclusion that it is a "decided complication of Euclid", Edward Tufte finds that "A close look, however, indicates that Byrne's design clarifies the overly indirect and compicated Euclid, at least for certain readers" (ibid.) "THE MOST ATTRACTIVE EDITION OF EUCLID THE WORLD HAS EVER SEEN" (Werner Oechslin, in an essay to the Taschen reprint, Cologne: 2010). Ing, Charles Whittingham Printer 46; Keynes, Pickering pp. 37, 65; McLean, Victorian Book Design p.51.

Er reiste in holländischen Diensten nach Ostindien, wurde nach seiner Rückkehr Steuerbeamter in Preußen. Seine scharfe Kritik an der preußischen Verwaltung während der Restauration führte zu seiner Flucht, zunächst nach Belgien (1844), dann in die Schweiz und 1847 - im Jahr der vorliegenden Publikation - in die USA. Von hier führte er eine publizistische Auseinandersetzung mit Karl Marx und Friedrich Engels (Deutsch-Brüsseler Zeitung). Während der Märzrevolution 1848 kehrte Heinzen nach Deutschland zurück und unterstützte die Badische Revolution, ging nach ihrem Scheitern in die USA zurück und arbeitete als Redakteur und Herausgeber verschiedener Zeitungen (insbesondere des "Pionier" in Boston).

        Recherches sur le groupement des atoms dans les molecules et sur le causes les plus intimes des formes cristallines

      Carilian-Goueuryn et Dalmont, Paris 1847 - In 8, pp. 28 con una tav. f.t. rip. inc. in lit. Sporadiche fioriture. Br. muta coeva con rinforzo al dorso. Importante studio in cui questo chimico e cristallografo francese ipotizza l'esistenza di strutture molecolari tridimensionali. Tuttavia l'opera, non suffragata da consistenti prove chimiche, ebbe, ai suoi tempi,Âscarsa accoglienza. Gaudin si dedico' dapprima alla cristallografia. Utilizzando fiamme molto calde riusci' a sintetizzare per la prima volta zaffiri e rubini artificiali. Si interesso' di dagherrotipia e puo' essere infatti considerato un pioniere delle tecniche fotografiche di impressione e sviluppo. Espresse la distinzione fra atomo e molecola, individuando in quest'ultima un aggregato isolato di atomi, anche identici. Assegno' il peso atomico corretto a 23 elementi e determino', attraverso i pesi molecolari, le formule esatte di numerosi composti organici e inorganici. ITA

      - Bleistift, mit einigen Deckweißlichtern, auf cremefarbenem Whatman-Papier, rechts unten signiert und datiert „Fried. Kaulbach 1847". 29,8:27,6 cm. Sensible und sehr fein durchgeführte Porträtstudien des noch jungen Malers, die zwischen den Reisen nach Italien im Jahr 1844 und nach Paris 1850 entstand. Friedrich Kaulbach, Sohn eines Kunsttischlers, war der Vater von Friedrich August Kaulbach (1850-1920) und der Cousin von Wilhelm von Kaulbach (1805-1874). Friedrich malte bereits in seiner Kindheit Blumen und Porträts, um die Familie zu unterstützen. 1839 ging er nach München und wurde dort Schüler seines Cousins. 1844 unternahm er eine Studienreise nach Venedig, 1850 nach Paris. 1856 wurde er von Georg V. nach Hannover berufen, um Bildnisse der Königsfamilie zu malen, und dort zum Hofmaler ernannt. 1879-1883 wurde er Lehrer für Aktzeichnen und Zeichnen an der Kunstgewerbeschule in Hannover und ab 1883 Professor an der dortigen Technischen Hochschule. Der Künstler war bald ein gefragter Porträtist an den europäischen Fürstenhöfen. Seine akkurat und nobel ausgeführten Bildnisse stehen in der Tradition des Biedermeier. Seine enge Beziehung zu dem hannoveranischen Königshaus dokumentiert beispielsweise das Gemälde „Die hann. Königsfamilie" (Prov.-Mus. Hannover), das zwischen 1858 und 1860 entstand.

Carlo Matteucci (1811 - 1868) Italian physicist and neurophysiologist, a pioneer in the study of bioelectricity. In 1840, by recommendation of François Arago (1786-1853), his teacher at the École Polytechnique, to the Grand-Duke of Tuscany, Matteucci accepted a post of professor of physics at the University of Pisa. Instigated by the work of Luigi Galvani (1737-1798) on bioelectricity, Matteucci began in 1830 a series of experiments which he pursued until his death in 1865. Using a sensitive galvanometer of Leopoldo Nobili, he was able to prove that injured excitable biological tissues generated direct electrical currents, and that they could be summed up by adding elements in series, like in Alessandro Volta's (1745-1827) electric pile. Thus, Mateucci was able to develop what he called a "rheoscopic frog", by using the cut nerve of a frog's leg and its attached muscle as a kind of sensitive electricity detector. In 1844, for these studies, Matteucci was awarded with the Copley medal by the Royal Society. * Other papers include: GROVE (W. R.) The Bakerian Lecture: On Certain Phenomena of Voltaic Ignition and the Decomposition of Water into Its Constituent Gases by Heat , pp.1-16; with: Supplementary Paper on Certain Phenomena of Voltaic Ignition, and the Decomposition of Water into Its Constituent Gases by Heat , pp.17-21; BROOKE (Charles) On the Automatic Registration of Magnetometers, and Other Meteorological Instruments, by Photography, 59-68; and: 69-77; RONALDS (Francis) On Certain Phenomena of Voltaic Ignition and the Decomposition of Water, pp.111-117; GLAISHER (James) On the Amount of the Radiation of Heat, at Night, from the Earth, and from Various Bodies Placed on or Near the Surface of the Earth, pp.119-144.

        Journal of an Overland Expedition in Australia, from Moreton Bay to Port Essington

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1847. Two volumes, octavo, with frontispiece and 6 aquatint plates in the text (1 folding), the 3-sheet map in the matching case, with the required early issue advertisement leaves and slip, publisher's presentation copy; original olive green cloth of the primary issue with the 3-sheet Arrowsmith map in its matching case which is rebacked in style. A fine set of a presentation copy of the first edition of this great monument in the history of Australian exploration. Leichhardt's Journal of an Overland Expedition documents one of the most unlikely and courageous ventures ever undertaken in the history of the continent. In the course of their harrowing journey, Leichhardt and his party "traversed over three thousand miles of completely unknown country in fourteen months, opening up a vast and valuable area of the interior... When they arrived in Port Essington it was believed that they had all perished. Indeed, expeditions had already been sent out in search of them. This journey of exploration was one of the longest inland expeditions undertaken and the land discovered was among the most valuable pasture on the continent. Leichhardt was welcomed to Port Essington as a national hero and, on his return to Sydney in March 1846, was lionized and feted by Sydney society as a man who had come back from the dead" (Wantrup).In spite of his poor bushcraft and almost constant harassment from natives, Leichhardt's meandering journey from Brisbane to Port Essington, the military base on the far north coast, ranks among Australia's most successful exploring expeditions. His scientific and geographic work were greatly admired during his lifetime, but his reputation as an expeditionary leader has been criticized since. His life and unknown death have become part of the mythology of European Australia.Rarely found in such beautiful condition. Abbey Travel in Aquatint and Lithography 1770-1860, 579; Australian Rare Books, 138a and 139; Ferguson, 4571.

        Narrative of the Surveying Voyage of H.M.S. Fly, commanded by Captain F.P. Blackwood, R.N. in Torres Strait, New Guinea, and other islands of the Eastern Archipelago, during the years 1842-1846

      London: T. & W. Boone, 1847. Two volumes, octavo, two folding maps and 19 plates (including 12 aquatints after Melville, three line-engraved views, and four natural history plates, textual illustrations, with various publisher's advertisements including for Leichhardt & Stokes; a most appealing set in modern crushed green half morocco gilt, original cloth tipped in at the end of each volume. First edition: an attractive set of this important surveying voyage of coastal Australia. Jukes' account is particularly important for his description of the Queensland coast, the Great Barrier Reef, and the Torres Strait, and includes an impressively detailed map of the north-east coast from Endeavour River north to New Guinea.The Fly, Captain Blackwood, sailed from Falmouth on 11 April 1842 with the cutter Bramble. Jukes sailed as naturalist to the expedition, and with his captain's consent wrote the official narrative. The survey of Torres Strait and of the Great Barrier Reef, as well as the various New Guinea explorations, were all of great importance. The proper scientific understanding of the Barrier Reef could not begin until the completion of the survey, which Jukes charted for the first time in detail. Jukes' own close examination of the reef was also significant, and his chapter on the subject 'is an invaluable record. His observations strongly supported Darwin's theory of the formation of coral reefs...' (Davidson). Indeed, Jukes' interest in coral formation is neatly summarised by the account's terrific opening line, 'I landed for the first time in my life on a coral island.'Ingleton notes: 'the Admiralty decided in 1841 to have the Great Barrier Reefs explored and to have the gaps surveyed in order that some means might be devised for marking the most eligible of these openings, in order that they could be recognised in due time and passed through in comparative safety... The expedition was noteworthy for being the first to be despatched to Australia on a purely surveying mission...' (Charting a Continent, pp. 61-66).
