        Recherches sur le Dimorphisme" WITH "Note sur un travail de M. Laurent intitulé: Sur l'isomorphisme et sur les types cristallins" in Annales de Chimie et de Physique, 3rd Series, Vol. 23, 1848, pp. 267-294; pp. 294-295

      HANDSOMELY BOUND FIRST EDITION OF PASTEUR'S FIRST FULL EXPOSITION OF HIS REVOLUTIONARY DISCOVERY OF MOLECULAR ASSYMETRY. "Pasteur's discovery counts among the most important advances in chemistry and constitutes the foundation of stereochemistry" ("Citation for Chemical Breakthrough Awards: Choosing Pasteur's Award-Winning Publication" in Bull. Hist. Chem., 38, 2013). Pasteur's discovery was 'announced' in the same year in a four page publication of the same title, "Recherches sur le dimorphisme" in Comptes Rendus. Note that we separately offer that announcement. Technically, the announcement, though short, is more highly valued, but with respect to substance, this offering, the Annales de Chimie et de Physique publication, is Pasteur's first full treatment of his discovery as well as his first published paper (the Comptes publication being regarded as only an 'announcement'). " Obviously prepared in part by the ideas of Delafosse and Laurent, Pasteur became convinced that the molecular asymmetry of optically active liquids ought to find expression in an asymmetry or hemihedrism in their crystalline form. In may 1848 - having published several related papers on isomorphism and dimorphism in various compounds - Pasteur announced the discovery of small hemihedral facets on the crystals of all nineteen tartrate compounds he had studied. In all of them the hemihedral facets inclined in the same direction, and the direction of optical activity was the same. In the optically inactive paratartrates Pasteur expected to find perfectly symmetrical crystals. "This expectation was confirmed with the notable exception of the sodium-ammonium paratartrate on which Mitscherlich's claims specifically rested. At first disappointed when he found hemihedrism in these crystals, Pasteur soon noticed that certain crystals inclined to the right, others to the left. Pasteur meticulously separated them by hand, dissolved them, and found that solutions of the right-handed crystals rotated the plane of polarized light in one direction while solutions of the left-handed crystals rotated it in the opposite direction to approximately the same degree. When equal weights of the two kinds of crystals were dissolved separately and then combined, the result was an optically inactive sodium-ammonium paratartrate. "Similar results were obtained with the acids from which the sodium-ammonium salts had been derived. Right-handed salts gave a right-handed acid identical to ordinary tartaric acid. Left-handed salts gave a hitherto unknown acid identical to tartaric acid expect for the left-handed direction of both its hemihedrism and optical activity. Combinations of equal weights of the left-handed and right-handed acids yielded in acid identical to racemic or paratartaric acid. Pasteur now concluded that the optical inactivity of paratartaric acid (and hence of its derivatives) resulted from its being a combination of two optically active acids that were mirror images of each other, the separate optical activities of which of each other, the separate optical activities of which, in opposite directions, compensated for or canceled each other" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography, Vol. 10 pp. 357-358). ALSO INCLUDED: Among other important chemical papers, the volume includes Gay-Lussac's Mémoire sur L'Eau Régale, pp. 203-229. CONDITION & DETAILS: Paris: Victor Masson. (8.25 x 5.5 inches; 206 x 138mm). Bears one small number stamp on the rear of the title page and one small circular stamp on the final page. [2], 512, [4]. 4 plates.

He built churches and dwellings in New England and spent several years in the south constructing municipal buildings and private dwellings, with his plant in Georgia. "In 1837, closing most of his large business relations in Pawtucket, Mr. Sayles again went South and engaged in the wholesale lumber trade for the firm of which he was the head, and also as agent of another company, operating steam mill saws, one on an island at the mouth of the Altamaha River, and one on the Savannah River, opposite the city of Savannah. After remaining in the south in the lumber business for about 20 years (having his family with him during some of the winters), he returned to Pawtucket" (Richard Bayles' A History of Providence County, 1891, vol.

II, p. 142). Not in the De Renne catalogue. Not recorded on OCLC. The Library of Congress and the Rhode Island Historical Society each hold portions of Sayles' business records that include some documents relating to the Doboy Steam Mill. Very good. Folded.

        Report of the Secretary of War, communicating, in Answer to a resolution of the Senate, a report and map of the examination of New Mexico. 30th Congress, 1st Session, Senate Executive Document No. 23

      132 pages with 24 lithographed plates and a large folding lithograph, black and white map as issued. 25 1/2 x 19 3/8" with full margins. Sheet size: 26 x 20 1/4". Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 5 3/4") bound in quarter leather with red spine label in gilt over marbled boards. Original wrappers not present, but the Streeter catalogue states that some copies were issued without wrappers. (Howes A-11, Wagner-Camp 143, Graff 5, Rittenhouse 2, Flake 726. Streeter 168) First Senate Edition.According to Streeter, the present map is "probably the second issue of the first printed map of New Mexico made public by the War Department, the first issue having appeared without the name of the lithographer with the Abert report when that was printed in the House edition of Emory's Notes of a Military Reconnaissance." The second issue was folded into Abert's summation of his findings, Report to the Secretary of War, published in 1848. Abert and Peck, both officers with the Army Topographical Corps of Engineers, began their reconnaissance of New Mexico two years earlier, in 1846, shortly after the Mexican province surrendered to the American army. Their report combined a topographical survey with scientific data on the new territory's population, political organization, flora, fauna, and mining districts. Today, the report is considered a founding document in Southwestern literature. The map is fascinating for its highly detailed depiction of topographical features. It also shows towns, Indian pueblos, battle sites, archaeological ruins, and mines. It is an excellent example of this basic Santa Fe Trail document and a fundamental addition to any collection of New Mexicana.James William Abert was an American soldier, explorer, ornithologist and topographical artist. In the summer of 1845 Abert was attached to the third expedition of John Charles Frémont, whose assignment was "to make reconnaissance southward and eastward along the Canadian River through the country of Kiowa and Comanche." Frémont, however, chose to take his main party on to California, and gave command of the Canadian River mission to Abert, with an assistant, Lt. William G. Peck. The legendary mountain man Thomas Fitzpatrick was employed as a guide, and Bent employees John L. Hatcher and Caleb Greenwood were hired temporarily as hunters. Except for the two young officers, the entire party of thirty-three was composed of civilians. The expedition struck the headwaters of the Canadian and followed it through the breaks in eastern New Mexico and into the Texas Panhandle. Continuing along the north bank of the Canadian, Abert noted many Panhandle landmarks, including Atascosa Creek and the Alibates Flint Quarries which he labeled Agate Bluffs. The expedition arrived at Bent's trading house in what is now Hutchinson County on September 14, rested there for a day, and exchanged gifts with a party of Kiowas and Comancheros. Three Kiowas had briefly joined the expedition to help keep the peace. On September 16, after Hatcher and Greenwood had left to return to Bent's Fort, the remainder of Abert's party crossed the Canadian and turned toward the southeast. Near the site of present Laketon, in Gray County, the party struck the North Fork of the Red River, which they mistook for the Washita and followed for a while, then turned back northeast toward the Canadian. They crossed the present Oklahoma boundary before reaching the Canadian, which they followed to its confluence with the Arkansas. At Fort Gibson, in eastern Indian Territory, the expedition was disbanded, and Abert and Peck went on to St. Louis. In the summer of 1846 Abert and Peck accompanied Gen. Stephen W. Kearny's Army of the West to New Mexico. Abert came down with a fever in July and had to remain behind at Bent's Fort to recuperate. While he was sick he continued his studies in natural science and ethnology and compiled a tribal dictionary. Afterward he joined Peck in Santa Fe, and the two lieutenants conducted a thorough survey of New Mexico as far south as Socorro. They visited each of the Rio Grande pueblos and, as before, took note of the geology and wildlife of the new American territory, as well as of the habits and customs of its native residents. Abert then went to Washington to submit his report to Congress.Condition:Scattered light foxing to text and first plate else a very good to fine copy. Provenance: The Estate of David Spinney.

Illustrated with 38 engraved plates, an engraved frontispiece and an engraved title vignette by H.K. Browne. 8vo, in a handsome period binding of of three quarter dark brown calf over marbled boards, back and corner-pieces gilt ruled. The spine with gilt ruled raised bands and with a black morocco label lettered and ruled in gilt, additional gilt lettering in a lower compartment, edges marbled, wove endpapers. The binding of the spine was expertly accomplished at a later date, and incorporates the original lettering label gilt, the end-leaves were added at the same time. xiv, 624 pp. A very handsome copy in a pleasing binding, sturdy and attractive with just a bit of expected maturing to the paper, much less then is typical. FIRST EDITION OF THIS VERY IMPORTANT WORK BY DICKENS. This is quite a desirable copy of the Dickens novel that introduced the world to the memorable Mr. Dombey and his transactions, business and personal, and that creates a "clear picture of society in [Dickens’] time." Dickens wrote it while in residence in a number of different areas, beginning the work in Lausanne, Switzerland, continuing in Paris, and finishing in Brighton, Broadstairs, and London, making the text "a true cosmopolite in the manner of its writing." The publication of this book marked a turning point for Dickens; his proceeds were a fine increase over MARTIN CHUZZLEWIT, and with these earnings "his financial worriment ceased, prosperity began, and a period of money-saving was at hand." This is the first publication of the text in its entirety after its serialization from October 1846 to April 1848. Copies this early are becoming scarce. An excellent piece of classic Dickensiana.

        Alexander von Humboldt.]

      1848 - Berlin: Alexander Duncker, c.1848. Tinted lithograph with facsimile autograph, finished by hand. Printed area 315 x 360mm. Marginal tear repaired. A scene of Alexander von Humboldt (1769-1859) at work in his study, taken from a watercolour by fellow Prussian Eduard Hildebrandt (1818-68), executed when the famed explorer was nearly eighty. The facsimile hand writing states that it is a true representation of his study while he was writing his treatise 'Kosmos' (a term he reintroduced from ancient Greek). The explorer and painter had become friends, and Humboldt had been able to introduce Hildebrandt to some important clients: Hildebrandt's first trip to America was to paint Rio de Janeiro for Friedrich Wilhelm IV of Prussia. This led to a world tour, 1860 - 1862, which included stops in the Middle East, India, Singapore, Thailand, Macao, Hong Kong, China, The Philippines, Japan and the United States. A folio of his works from his round-the-world voyage were published as chromolithographs in 1864 in Berlin under the title of 'Reise Um Die Erde' (Journey around the Earth).

The cahier is a fair copy, prepared no doubt for presentation. Prefaced by an apparently unfinished illustrated glossary of geometric terms, and a discussion of the properties of a sphere, the first part is devoted to planet earth, with sections, most in question and answer form, on the equator, the zodiac, the horizon, the tropics, longitude and latitude, etc., and is illustrated with meticulous diagrams, small watercolors of the astrological signs, a colorful compass rose, and a full-page emblematic watercolor of an armillary sphere on a grassy ledge surrounded by emblems of writing, painting, and measurement, signed and dated H. R., 7 avril 1848. The section concludes with the author's large bold red stenciled crowned initials A. R. The following section, on astronomy, is the most spectacularly illustrated portion of the notebook, opening with a striking full-page drawing of the solar system [f. 23] in white and gray on a black ground, according to the system of "Copernicus, Polish Astronomer." Other illustrations include stylized stars, the orbit of a comet, the earth from space showing the lunar orbit, three striking black-ground drawings of the moon and of solar and lunar eclipses, colored diagrams of the positions of the earth vis-a-vis the sun during the equinoxes and solstices, plus allegorical and decorative illustrations of a bagpipe player and a multi-colored flowering branch. The second part, on geography and government, opens with a presentation of the principles and vocabulary of political geography (still in question and answer form), illustrated with a fictional full-page map ("Carte Phisique Demonstrative")modelling various geographic features, and with a sphere showing 8 individuals and their shadows representing the different solar exposures of the planet. A map of Europe in 1815 introduces the geography of Europe, which quickly narrows to Italy. The various Italian states (Piedmont, Parma, Modena, Toscana, the Papal States, the Realm of Sicily [comprising the entire boot south of Rome], Corsica and Sardinia) are each described in some detail, with briefly commented lists of the principal towns, e.g., Livorno is a "very commercial seaport on the Mediterranean, southwest of Pisa. Its only remarkable features are the Synagogue of the Hebrews and the four Moors at the foot of the statue of Ferdinand de Medici." Concluding the notebook are short sections on adjacent countries or regions, or on countries considered important, first and most importantly France, followed by Switzerland, "Germany or the Confederation of the Rhine," Prussia, the Austrian Empire, and the British Isles. That the prominence of France in Mlle Racah's notebook and her use of French may be in part the heritage of the Bonapartist regime is supported by an iconographic reference to Napoleon in an illustration concluding the Piedmont section, depicting a woman kneeling at a tombstone engraved with the crowned Napoleonic initial N (next to her stands a Roman warrior). And that France carried equal weight with Italy in the writer's heart as a symbol of liberty may be deduced from the double Italian and French flags at the head of the general title page, the Italian flag labeled "Indep. Italiana", the French flag "R F" [République Française] (the labels, written in the blank centers of each flag, are oxidised). Livorno was a center of Risorgimento activity, and in May 1849 the Livornese would defend themselves valiantly though unsuccessfully against the siege by the Austrian army. Such an accomplished manuscript may have been submitted as what we would now call a final paper or "take-home exam." The Racahs were members of the prosperous Jewish community of Livorno, a cosmopolitan port and haven for the Jewish community in Italy until the disasters of the twentieth century. What Gibbon wrote in 1764 still held in 1848: "Every nation can arrive here and live according to their religion and under the protection of their own laws ... This is the veritable Land of Canaan for the Jews, who experience here a mildness unknown in the rest of Italy. The interests of commerce here have almost silenced the conversionist spirit of the Church of Rome" (Edward Gibbon's journal, 1764, cited in A. Green, Moses Montefiore [2010], chap. 1). Adèle Racah's parents were Giuseppe Racah (d. 1863) and Rosina Soria. In 1832 she married Leon Seyman (1832-1900). Their son Georges was born in 1859; Adèle died, in Bone, Algeria, following the birth of her second son Jacob in 1862 (cf. geneanet.org).
