"During subsequent years, whenever I had leisure, I pursued my experiments, and my book on 'Insectivorous Plants' was published in July 1875 that is, sixteen years after my first observations. The delay in this case, as with all my other books, has been a great advantage to me; for a man after a long interval can criticise his own work, almost as well as if it were that of another person. The fact that a plant should secrete, when properly excited, a fluid containing an acid and ferment, closely analogous to the digestive fluid of an animal, was certainly a remarkabl … [Click Below for Full Description]

Zola, Emile
In original envelope, addressed to Ernst Ziegler (1849-1905), a Swiss pathologist who also translated Germinal and who was friendly with Zola. In this note, the Zola announces the publication of his novel 'La Terre' in the journal Gil Blas and asks Ziegler how quickly he can translate the first chapters of it. We will transcribe the French and also provide a translation into English. In French: 'Mon cher enfrere, je n'ai pas vous ecrire rien de definitif, hesitant moi-meme, ne sachant a quoi me decider. Mais voici que brusquement, les choses pressent, et je vou pose la question suivante. La Terre, mon nouveau roman, va probablement parmetre dans le Gils Blas a partir du 15 mars.

The Earth, my new novel, will probably be published in the Gils Blas from March 15th. Do you have six weeks to launch your flyer, deal with newspapers and start your translation?

SAND George
SAND George. Exceptional original autograph manuscript of the play Mario by George Sand, produced in the theatre on her estate in Nohant. In a round hand with a few passages crossed out and some pencil notes. 14 sheets in blue ink, in their original brown paper covers, with an ink title to upper cover and the note Comedy in two scenes , as well as the label "N°63 D". This theatrical outline of the Handsome Gents of the Bois-Dore was played in the intimate setting of the "Great Theatre at Nohant" by friends of Sand. The theatre, created in 1849, worked to the rhythm of the life of the proprietors of Nohant, who were at the same time the creative force, actors, and spectators of this great theatrical experiment. The writing and premiere of this piece mark a period of veritable renaissance for this "family theatre" whose activity had almost ceased with the death of Sand's granddaughter on the 13 January 1855. In the autumn of 1856, Nohant emerged from a long period of mourning and its theatre was heavily reworked - steps were added and Bolard painted some sumptuous sets. A new theatrical season began on 8 September, the costumes for the piece being carefully prepared by the members of the household; this piece was played for the first time on 27 September 1856, then 30 September, and a final time on 27 October. Upset by the very meager success of three plays at the beginning of the year, Sand took a step back from professional theatre; her adaptation of Shakespeare's As You Like It at the Theâtre-Francais was almost called off after the first performance. The theatre at Nohant … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frankfort, Kentuck: 1849 KENTUCKY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION SIGNATURE BOOK with SIGNATURES of 95 COUNTY REPRESENTATIVES, plus Sergeant at Arms, Reporters, etc. The Constitutional Convention signatory Sign In notebook was owned by THOMAS N. LINDSEY, member of the notable LINDSEY FAMILY of FRANKFORT KENTUCKY. Thomas N. Lindsey was the Representative of Franklin County, Kentucky. His signature is on the backside of the first page. The Signature Book is 3x5 inches and filled with blank paper. Lacking the front cover, however the spine covering and rear cover are present, as are all the inner pages. It appears likely that Thomas N. Lindsey was responsible for getting the signatures of the attending Representatives and others at the Kentucky Constitutional Convention of 1849 (that led to the adoption of the Constitution of 1850). He signed his name clearly on the verso of the first page, and I believe also on the back cover though that signature is very difficult to see. Though the notebook pages were blank, Lindsey wrote 3 numbers on a page up to number 100, leaving space by each number where Representatives signed in and identified themselves by county. 94 Representatives signed in and most wrote the county they represented below their signature, some also wrote the city they were from. The spaces beside numbers 95-100 are blank. However, Thomas N. Lindsey, the representative from Franklin County, signed at the front as noted above, meaning that this notebook contains a total of 95 signatures of the Constitutional Convention Representatives. Many of the signatures are accompani … [Click Below for Full Description]

Richmond, John W[ilkes]
[Providence?, 1849. Folio broadside, 11" x 17 3/4". Lengthy text printed in three columns beneath title. Two light creases. Two small tape remnants at head of verso from prior mounting. Signed in type, 'John W. Richmond.' Near Fine. The broadside is an attack on Sylvester G. Shearman, a candidate for Congress from the Western District of Rhode Island in 1849. Richmond, its author, was Agent for the Creditors of the State for Revolutionary Claims; those Claims were a major issue during the election. Shearman, he says, is a "trading politician" of "uncontrollable vanity," "a lawyer, whose talents can be only calculated by one familiar with fractional arithmetic." As an opponent of creditors' just Claims, Shearman is "totally incompetent" and "totally wanting in courtesy of behavior and gentlemanly address." Shearman lost the election. Sylvester G. Shearman [1802-1868], a native of North Kingstown, Rhode Island, was a lawyer, judge and politician. He had a long career in the State Legislature, and was the Whig candidate for Congress in 1849. Later he was Rhode Island's Attorney General and Associate Justice of its Supreme Court. [Fuller: THE GREEN BAG, VOLUME 2, 1890, p.536; Richmond, John W.: RHODE ISLAND REPUDIATION: OR THE HISTORY OF THE REVOLUTIONARY DEBT OF RHODE ISLAND, 1855, pp. 120-127]. Richmond [1775-1857] was a physician. A tribute in "The Medical World" notes his longstanding battle with Rhode Island for its repudiation of her Revolutionary War debt.

The Book of Mormon 1849 Scarce Leather Presentation Edition Scarce Liverpool 2nd European Edition Only 5,000 copies printed!! Flake 600, 563 pages! Flake 600; Crawley 415. The first printing of the Book of Mormon following the death of Joseph Smith. With minor editorial changes by Orson Pratt, and differing from the present text in two important verses (see further below). The main body of the Latter-day Saints was now struggling to survive in Utah, and had no means to publish the book there: no edition would be printed in Utah until 1871. Five thousand copies were printed, advertised in the Millennial Star ready for sale on May 15, 1849. "Reprinting the 1841 edition," explains Peter Crawley, Orson Pratt added a half title, included the testimonies of the three and eight witnesses on one page, and moved the index--now headed Contents--to the front of the book. He also made a number of minor textual changes and corrected the punctuation of the text on the title page. [Crawley, p. II:79. IMAGE SHOWN HERE: 1849 portrait of Orson Pratt, engraved by Frederick Piercy, 1849, as found in Pratt's Series of Pamphlets (not published in the Book of Mormon)] While this was the first Book of Mormon edition to be edited by Orson Pratt (who would be noted for creating the Book's modern chapter and verse system thirty years later), this was also the final Book of Mormon edition to be printed before Franklin D. Richards' addition of paragraph numbers (1852), which began the system in a simple way.

A history of mining throughout the world, fortuitously published at the beginning of the California gold rush. "The discovery of California gold made Comstock's world survey appeal to a much wider audience. He hurriedly included information on California and added a final chapter entitled 'Estimated Expenses of Outfits from the United States to California.' He opened by saying his printer allowed him no time to fully develop the subject. Comstock also calculated the cost of going to California, the loss of labor in the eastern United States, and estimated that it would take $22,260,000 in California gold before the United States would realize a profit"-Kurutz. Contains various charts and tables. REFERENCES: Kurutz 154; Cowan, p. 139; Sabin 15074.

Although others had noticed that there is some regularity in the association of different minerals, he was the first to make a comprehensive study of such minerals... The importance of his work in this field was immediately recognized" (DSB). [Attributes: First Edition]

[x], [11]-125; 24; [30], 180, [2] pp. 8vo. New York City carved in wood. A curious work of New York boosterism, printed to promote a model of New York city carved in wood and exactly replicating every building in the city. The model was conceived and executed by E. Porter Belden and 150 assisting artisans, at a reported cost of over $20,000, and was exhibited at the Minerva Room beginning in 1846, with the intention of exhibiting it throughout the United States. (Whitman saw it and praised it highly.) The present volume is comprised of a history of New York by Belden, written with the aid of the "vast number of statistical details" collected in the course of constructing the model. The second work gives an account of the model and describes it in detail, provides testimony to its accuracy by leading civic figures, and reprints favorable press reviews. The third work is a New York advertising circular in excess of 200 pages, complete with index, providing an in-depth portrait of commercial New York in the late 1840s. Provenance: Taylor's Hotel (annotations at front of volume). Original cloth brown cloth. Spine and top margin of upper board faded, internally clean.

This is a collection of his works gathered into a sort of "coffee table book" affording views of Kent, Margate and other parts of Southern England. Other artists represented in this collection are W. Collins, William Westall, Prout and Dewint. The plates were engraved by some of the most advanced and expert engravers of the time including George Cooke, E. Goodall, William Miller and others.

Frankfort, Kentuck: 1849 KENTUCKY CONSTITUTIONAL CONVENTION SIGNATURE BOOK with SIGNATURES of 95 COUNTY REPRESENTATIVES, plus Sergeant at Arms, Reporters, etc. The Constitutional Convention signatory Sign In notebook was owned by THOMAS N. LINDSEY, member of the notable LINDSEY FAMILY of FRANKFORT KENTUCKY. Thomas N. Lindsey was the Representative of Franklin County, Kentucky. His signature is on the backside of the first page. The Signature Book is 3x5 inches and filled with blank paper. Lacking the front cover, however the spine covering and rear cover are present, as are all the inner pages. It appears likely that Thomas N. Lindsey was responsible for getting the signatures of the attending Representatives and others at the Kentucky Constitutional Convention of 1849 (that led to the adoption of the Constitution of 1850). He signed his name clearly on the verso of the first page, and I believe also on the back cover though that signature is very difficult to see. Though the notebook pages were blank, Lindsey wrote 3 numbers on a page up to number 100, leaving space by each number where Representatives signed in and identified themselves by county. 94 Representatives signed in and most wrote the county they represented below their signature, some also wrote the city they were from. The spaces beside numbers 95-100 are blank. However, Thomas N.
