        Systeme Silurien du Centre de la Boheme.

      1852. Premiere partie: RECHERCHES PALEONTOLOGIQUES (all published!). Prague & Paris, chez l'auteur & editeur, 1852-1911. 8 sections (bound in 30 volumes). 4to. pp. 8224, with 1606 lithographed plates. Original cloth, covers blind stamped, spines with gilt lettering (3 volumes re-bound to match, one volume in wrappers). Joachim Barrande (1799-1883) "collected, described, and drew the fossils of the central Bohemian basin - this area has been called the Barrandian ever since. The strata of this basin are Proterozoic - early Paleozoic in age. The results formed the outstanding monograph 'Systeme Silurien'. Because this work is so comprehensive, its drawings so accurate, and its descriptions so fine, it is still used as a reference book by paleontologists (D.B.S. I, pp. 468/469). Zittel (pp. 445/446) called this handbook "a work which stands almost unrivalled in palaeontological literature". It contains descriptions and figures of 4565 species, with a few exceptions all coming from the Lower Palaeozoic marine beds of Bohemia. The most sumptuously produced work ever produced in paleontology. Barrande was a pupil of Cuvier, Orbigny and Brogniart. Contents as follows, volume I: Trilobites - II: Cephalopodes - III: Pteropodes - IV: Gasteropodes - V: Brachiopodes - VI: Acephales - VII: Echinodermes: Cystidees - VIII: Bryozoaires, Hydrozoaires, Anthozoaires, Alcyonaires. A complete set of this monumental classic on the paleontology of Bohemia, which was privately printed in a very small limited edition of 250 copies only. The first volume of the Tilobites pp. 935, with 51 plates in xerox-copies..

Eine Postkarte undatiert, sonst Briefe und Postkarten von 9. X. 1913 bis 16. XI. 1919. Manuskripte undatiert. Verschiedene Formate. Zus. ca. 101 Seiten. - Adressiert an (und aus dem Nachlass von) Joseph Eberle, Redakteur bei der Reichspost und Herausgeber der katholischen Zeitschrift "Schönere Zukunft" 1884-1947). Manuskripte zur Veröffentlichung in der Reichspost, bei welcher Eberle den Bereich "Allgemeine Kultur und religiöse Fragen" leitete. (7. IX. 1919:) "Es gibt keinen Autor, der nicht von einem mißwollenden Leser hingerichtet werden könnte; dagegen hilft keine Vorsicht. Als ich vor Jahren meine apologtischen Gespräche über Religion in Jos. Mosers "Schul- u. Elternztg." veröffentlichte, erhielt Moser auch von einem Ordenspriester, der mich aber wiederholt in gedrückten Kritiken überschwenglich gelobt hat, bedenkliche Briefe, so daß mir nachträglich die Herausgabe in Buchform verleidet war. Und nun sagte mir vor kurzem Seminardirektor Gustav Müller, ihm habe ein Priester gesagt, daß er noch jetzt diese alten Kapitel bei Predigten u. sonst sehr gut gebrauchen könne. Ich habe dann bei Moser auch eine Psychologie ("Welt und Seele") kapitelweise erscheinen lassen; da würden mir aber die Bedenken über diese Arbeit zu arg und ich brach die Veröffentlichung plötzlich ab, um nicht Ärgernis zu erregen" Weiter Bezug zur Flucht von Joseph Görres, Publizist (1776-1848). - Sonstige Briefe zu bestimmten Zeitungsartikeln oder der Position Kraliks gegenüber der Reichspost, etc. - Postkarten: (Undatierte Postkarte:) Verschiebung einer Gralsitzung (Anm.: Kralik gründete die katholisch-nationalistische Gesellschaft "Gralbund" mit der Zeitung "Der Gral") - (undatierte Postkarte:) Einladung zu einer Gralsitzung am 6. XII. 1916. - (Postkarte 16. XI. 1918:) "L[ieber] fr[eund] Ich rate dir, in der Anzeige des neuen Titels zu sagen, daß nicht eine Wandlung in den Anschauungen über die Staatsform, sondern der Umstand ausschlaggebend war, daß derzeit eine "öst.-ung. Monarchie" als Reichsgebiet nicht existiert, sondern nur verschiedene Teilstaaten, von denen wir allerdings hoffen, daß sie auf föderativem Wege wieder zu einem Bunde einigen werden, dessen Benennung wir aber nicht vorgreifen wollen. - Ich habe heute wieder ein paar Artikelchen geschrieben [.]" - (1. IX. 1919:) "Ich beug’ mich geknirscht vor dem Wauwau Von der Hohen Schule von Stockerau und flehe, man spreche mich endlich frei Von meiner verbrecherischen Bahrbahrei". - Manuskripte: Alle Manuskripte sind auf der Rückseite eines alten Manuskriptes verfasst worden, welches unvollständig und unzusammenhängend ist (hauptsächlich Geschichtliches). Die Seitenangabe bezieht sich auf die relevanten Seiten, d. h. 10 S. = 10 Bl.) - 1. "Tage und Werke. Lebenserinnerungen von Richard Kralik. Werke zur Literaturgeschichte.

        MAP AND PROFILE OF THE ROUTE FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A SHIP CANAL FROM THE ATLANTIC TO THE PACIFIC OCEANS, ACROSS THE ISTHMUS IN THE STATE OF NICARAGUA, CENTRAL AMERICA, SURVEYED FOR THE AMERICAN ATLANTIC AND PACIFIC SHIP CANAL COMPANY. BY. O.W. CHILDS. 1850-51.

      Wm. C. Bryant & Co., Printers,, New York: 1852 - Cover title. Large folding map, approx. 36" x 107", folded to 6" x 8.5". Bound in printed green paper-covered boards with black cloth spine [boards lightly rubbed and spotted], accession label on spine. The map has some hand-colored routes and locations. Map sections have been expertly joined in several places with archival tape applied to blank verso [apparently as issued]. Tanning along some folds and edges, light spotting. Several expertly mended fold splits [no text loss], a few short closed tears repaired on verso with archival tape. Manuscript ownership signature of W.H. Talcott at head of front board. The map has a blind embossed stamp in a blank margin: "American Society of Civil Engineers, Founded in New York in A.D. 1852." Very Good. The 1840s brought forth much advocacy of a ship canal through Nicaragua and across the Isthmus of Panama, connecting the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. The United States and England clashed over its control. The Clayton-Bulwer Treaty resulted in an agreement for joint support and control. The treaty was signed and ratified in 1850. Ephraim G. Squier, U.S. Charge' d' Affaires, had negotiated with the American, Atlantic & Pacific Ship Canal Company to do the work. Col. O.W. Childs of Philadelphia was appointed Chief Engineer, and assigned the task of surveying and determining a line of location. W[illiam] H. Talcott [1809-1868], this map's previous owner, was a Connecticut native who moved to Albany to study engineering under John B. Jervis. During his early career, he surveyed the Hudson River and the Albany and West Stockbridge Railroad, and was Superintendent and Engineer of the Mohawk and Hudson Railroad. He was appointed Constructing Engineer of the Genesee Valley Canal in 1837, resident engineer upon the Erie Canal Enlargement project in 1841, Resident Engineer and Superintendent of the Western Division of the Morris Canal in New Jersey in 1845 and its Chief Engineer and Superintendent in 1846, and finally, as the President of the Canal Company in 1864. He was one of the twelve founding members of the American Society of Civil Engineers, formed in 1852. OCLC shows thirteen locations, as of November 2013. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE IRIS: AN ILLUMINATED SOUVENIR FOR MDCCCLII (1852)

      Lippincott, Grambo & Co., Philadelphia 1852 - Octavo (6-1/4" x 9-1/4") bound in the original full embossed burgundy morocco leather with a gilt decorative figure in the center of both covers. Neatly rebacked at a recent date with a new leather spine. Most notable for the color plates of scenes of Native Americans, some of the earliest chromolithographs made. Also with many articles and poems about Native Americans, most (18) by Mary Eastman. Complete with 12 plates--including the often lacking Presentation plate and The Landing of William Penn--as well as the Illuminated Title Page plate, the List of Illustrations plate, and all 8 chromolithographs of Native Americans by P. S. Duval after drawings by Capt. Seth Eastman are present. They include depictions of "Indian Courtship" and an "Indian Marriage Custom." Seth Eastman was stationed in various posts throughout the West where he and his wife Mary observed and recorded their impressions of American Indians. The Presentation plate filled out by the owner in December 1852. Moderate to heavy foxing and staining throughout, the plates darkened a bit but still fairly clean and quite attractive. Overall a Very Good copy with early color plates of Native Americans [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Collection of Twenty-four Diaries, 1852-1899

      1852-1899. A collection of diaries spanning nearly five decades by a Centreville, Pennsylvania native, William M. Shriver, who was possibly a Civil War veteran. Twenty-four volumes, small octavo, various bindings (cloth, leather). Generally in fine condition. The brief entries are all written in pencil, with detailed household accounting lists in the back. They are mostly concise descriptions of the weather and the diarist's main activity of the day: working in the store, going to the local tavern, etc.. Shriver has signed his name with the location and date in most of the volumes. The years included are: 1852, 1853, 1869, 1870-71, 1871, 1872, 1874, 1875, 1876-77, 1877-78, 1880-1881, 1881, 1882, 1883, 1887, 1888, 1890, 1891, 1892, 1894, 1895, 1896, 1897, 1899. In the 1870 United States Federal Census, there is an entry for a William Shriver of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania with an approximate birth date of 1830. The Civil War holdings of the Pennsylvania State Archives contains the papers and military records of a William M. Shriver of Cumberland County, dating from 1855, 1862-66, 1871-72, 1877-79, 1886, 1891, and 1897. Though there is no definitive evidence that all this refers to the same man, still the possibility exists that the William Shriver born about 1830 in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, is the same William Shriver who served during the Civil War, who, in turn, is the author of these diaries. Regardless, the diaries are a good resource for those curious about the daily life of an average citizen in 19th Century America. .

It is only the artificial and the complex that bewilders them.” In the original blue publisher’s cloth, stamped in gilt and blind, which is nearly as fresh and bright as the day it was issued. Rare in such fine condition, with only light foxing and slight rubbing to corners and top of spine. Neat presentation inscription dated before publication, Christmas, 1851.
