        Konvolut bestehend aus 9 Manuskripten, 7 Briefen und 8 Postkarten.

      Kralik, Richard, Schriftsteller (1852-1934). 8 eigenh. Postkarten, 7 davon mit U., 7 eigenh. Briefe mit U., 8 Manuskripte, 3 Kuverts. 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. "[...] Wenn Gott, der Vater, Christi, die Welt geschaffen hat, so ist auch die ganze Welt ihrem Wesen nach christlich, d. h. katholisch. Darum steht Christus auch in der Mitte der Weltliteratur [...] Alles dient nur dazu, die christliche Kultur zu schmücken und auszugestalten. [...]"(10 S.) - 2. "Tage und Werke. Lebenserinnerungen von Richard Kralik. Literarische Vereinigungen. Kommentare zu Idunna, Leogesellschaft, Wiener Literarischer Verein, viel über den Gralbund. "[...]Ich sah nicht etwa die Katholische Literatur als "auch" zulässig an, sondern als den Gipfel, die Krone, die Vollendung aller Literatur sie sollte nicht bloß geduldet, sondern in ihrer alles überragenden Bedeutung sowohl von Katholiken wie Nichtkatholiken anerkannt werden. [...]" (10 S.) - Beiliegend Buchseiten über die Geschichte Wallensteins. (24 S.) - 3. "Zur Revision der deutschen Geschichte und Kultur vom süddeutsch-österreichischen Standpunkt. Neue Beiträge von Dr. Richard Kralik. " II. - Geschichtliche Abhandlung, die mit einem Aufruf gegen die Entente endet, die das katholische Österreich "an Haupt und Gliedern" zerstören will. (10 S.) - 4. "Tage und Werke. Lebenserinnerungen von Richard Kralik. Meine wissenschaftlichen Werke. Geschichte." In erster Linie Abhandlung über seine eigenen Geschichtsbücher. (12 S.) - 5. Die erste Seite fehlt, daher titellos. Kommentar zum ersten Weltkrieg und zu Kaiser Karl I. (4 S.) - 5. "Kulturelle Gedanken zu den Wahlen" Eine Ermahnung, die Wahlen ernstzunehmen. (6 S.) - 6. "Zum Jubiläum des hl. Hieronymus" Abhandlung über den Hl. Hieronymus mit Kommentar auf die Gegenwart (5 S.) - 7. "Allgemeine Geschichte der Neuesten Zeit. Eine Selbstanzeige von Dr. Richard Kralik" Abhandlung über die Entwicklungen der letzten Jahrzehnte, darunter v. a. Bismarck, welchen er stark verurteilt: "[...]Nicht die Begeisterung für deutsche oder preußische Größe hat seine Handlungen beseelt, sondern der Haß gegen das katholische, das habsburgische Österreich.[...]" (11 S.) - 8. "Legitimität. Von Dr. Richard Kralik" Beitrag hauptsächlich zum bereits geschehen ersten Weltkrieg: "[...] Aber - aber - die nichtlegitimen Einflüße und Störungen waren es, die verfassungsmäßige Fortentwicklung gestört haben. Also nicht Schwäche und Irrtum in der legitimen Handhabung der Gesetze, sondern Bosheit, Verbrechen und Verrat haben die organische Entwicklung der österreichisch-ungarischen Verfassung aufgehalten. unmöglich gemacht und zum Scheitern gebracht. Bis zum letzten Augenblick haben sich die Nationalitäten Österreichs als loyal bekannt und ihre Mitarbeit am Verfassungswerk zugesagt. Der Verrat kam von außen, von den Ententemächten und ihrer lebhaften Propaganda [...]" Weiter Kommentar zum Kommunismus und seinem Widerspruch zur Natur. (13 S.) - 9. "Das Unfehlbarkeitsdogma. Von Richard Kralik" Abhandlung über die päpstliche Unfehlbarkeit und dem Ersten Vatikanischen Konzil von 1870. Dabei Verurteilen der Bischöfe, die dem gegenüber skeptisch waren (und Verurteilung Bismarcks). Der katholische Theologe Ignaz von Döllinger (1799-1890) wird ebenfalls stark kritisiert. (20 S.) - Richard Ritter Kralik von Meyrswalden war katholisch-konservativer Kultur- und Literaturhistoriker, Dramatiker und Lyriker (vgl. ÖAW). Nanuskripte auf den Rückseiten stets mit einem blauen Buntstift durchgestrichen. Auf den Vorderseiten öfters Korrekturen durch eine fremde Hand (vermutlich von Eberle). Öfters sind Textpassagen korrigierend mit anderen Textpassagen überklebt, dadurch Klebspuren. Die äußeren Seiten jeweils immer leicht angestaubt. Sonst gut erhalten.

        Anatome topographica sectionibus per corpus humanum congelatum triplici directione ductis illustrata.

      St. Petersburg: Typis Jacobi Trey, 1852. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Elephant Folio. 1852-1859. 8 parts in 1 text volume and 4 parts in 1 atlas volume. Text vol.: 4to (263 x 168 mm), [2], xiv, 248, 75 [1], 28, 39 [1], 90, 60, 74, 168 pp. Atlas vol.: elephant folio (566 x 375 mm), comprising 4 parts in 13 fascicules with a total of 220 lithographic plates, of which 14 doubled page and one folding (some sheets present with two plate numbers each), lacking the 4 part titles, plates partly untrimmed and of various sizes, one oversize plate bound in as double-page and laid down on white paper. Later three-quarter calf over marbled boards, spines titled in blind (light rubbing to extremities, corners slightly bumped). Text volume internally little age-toned only, otherwise crisp and clean; atlas volume with occasional scattered foxing (some plates stronger) and marginal dust-soiling, a few plates trimmed close or shaved a few mm, a few short tears without loss, occsional annotations in light pencil. ----Garrison-M. 416, 615; Choulant, p.408; Roberts & Tomlinson, The fabric of the Body, p.576-7; Hirsch-H. IV. - EXCEPTIONALLY RARE FIRST EDITION INCLUDING BOTH THE TEXT- AND ATLAS VOLUME. "Pirogov was the greatest of all Russian surgeons. In Russian medicine he is approached only by Pavlov. He introduced the teaching of applied topographical anatomy in Russia. His great atlas of 220 plates represents the first use on a grand scale of frozen sections in anatomical illustration, an idea first carried out by de Riemer" (Garrison-M). Pirogov's frozen cross-sections bear a close resemblance to modern images produced through computed tomography (CT), and may be appreciated as the first comprehensive record of how the body could be viewed in this way. "The first volume consists of life-size sections of the head, most in transverse planes; the second contains transverse and sagittal sections of the thorax; the third transverse, sagittal and frontal sections of the abdominal cavity in both sexes; the fourth sections in three planes through the extremities and their joints." (Choulant). "Pirogov's further unusual and independent studies of an anatomy, carried out at Tartu from 1835 to 1840, and in Petersburg from 1841 to 1856, were published in Latin in eight parts... This atlas contained [lithographies] based on cross-sections of frozen corpses, a technique apparently invented by P. de Riemer in the Netherlands in 1818, and also, independently, by Pirogov, and published by him in this atlas. The technique enabled him to investigate the relationship of structures as they actually exist in a body undisturbed by dissection. Pirogov's dedication to his work has been widely noted: it has been said that he made 12000 autopsies while Professor at the Medical-Surgical Academy of Peterburg." (Roberts & Tomlinson, p.576). Our copy collates with the digitized Heidelberg copy, except that the Heidelberg copy lacks plate 22 in fasc. 2 and plate 12bis (the second half of the double-page) in Fasc. 2A. Part 1 contains 51 plates subdivided into fasc. 1, 1A, 1B and appendix, part 2 has 44 plates subdivided into fasc. 2, 2A, and 2B, part 3 has 90 plates subdivided in fasc. 3, 3A, and 3B and Part 4 has 35 plates subdivided in fasc. 4, 4A, and 4B. Since Pirogov's text was published in a much smaller format six years after the atlas, it is likely that few copies of the atlas would be associated with the accompanying text and in fact we cannot trace any copy at auction that had both, the text and the atlas volume. The only copy of the atlas volume only (incomplete lacking 2 part titles) has been the Dean Edell copy (sold at Christie's in 2015 for USD 11,250). Very Good.

        Uncle Tom's Cabin; With twenty-seven illustrations by George Cruikshank.

      London: John Cassell, 1852 - 13 parts in 11 as issued, octavo (203 x 132 mm). Original yellow paper wrappers printed in black, including the 2-page advertisement for Parr's Life-Pills to the rear of part 6, which is often lacking. Housed in a custom-made red quarter morocco solander box. Ownership signature of S. Stewart Taunton to front wrappers of part 4. Wrappers browned and a little soiled and chipped, contents very occasionally foxed, overall in extremely good condition which is rare for this edition as the wrappers were printed on poor quality paper. Portrait frontispiece and vignette title page to part 13, and 27 full-page wood engraved plates. First UK and first Cruikshank edition of Stowe's sensational abolitionist novel in the original weekly parts, one of the scarcest forms of the story, published in the same year as both the conclusion of the serialised story in the American abolitionist newspaper The National Era and the first US publication in book form. Cassell's choice of artist for his edition was well-calculated, for at the time Cruikshank was a world-famous artist whose influence ensured that Stowe's work circulated in the most fashionable illustrated book markets. This illustrated edition was "one of the most popular and long-lived. [Cruikshank's] twenty-seven whole-page designs, reproduced as wood-engravings, concentrated upon the scenes which were to provide the basic matrix for the majority of subsequent illustrated editions", and ensured that Uncle Tom's Cabin became known as a visual icon as well as a literary phenomenon (Wood, p. 152). Cohn 777. See Printing and the Mind of Man 332; Marcus Wood, Blind Memory: Visual Representations of Slavery in England and America, 1780-1865. Manchester: Manchester University Press, 2000.

        A Grammar and Dictionary of the Malay Language,: with a Preliminary Dissertation. Vol.I. Dissertation and Grammar.

      London Smith, Elder & Co. 1852 - John Crawfurd, 1783-1868, East India Company surgeon, began his study of the Malay language when he was posted to Penang in 1808. He accompanied Raffles on the invasion of Java and was appointed resident at the Court of Yogyakarta where he also learnt Javanese. In 1823 he was appointed Resident of Singapore. In all Crawfurd spent 12 years in countries where Malay was the main or vernacular language. In the preface he thanks his friend Marsden, and acknowledges that "without the previous labours of Mr Marsden, my book certainly never would have been written, or even attempted", but goes on the state that his own work "is more copious than any of its predecessors". The Grammar only, without the Dictionary. A very good used copy in original cloth.

Trial of Colonel David Pinniger, Lt. Col. William P. Maxwell, Major Nathan Whiting, Captain Allen Tillinghast: Officers of the Kentish Guards, Before a General Court-Martial Holden at the Court-House, In Providence, April 27, 1808, For Disobedience of Orders and Neglect of Duty. Warren [RI]: Printed by Nathaniel & John F. Phillips, 1808. 41, [4] pp. Errata slip pasted to verso of p.41. Octavo (7-3/4"x 4-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet, fragments to wrapper along spine, untrimmed edges. Moderate toning, early owner signature to verso of final leaf. $650. * Only edition. Formed in 1774, the Kentish Guards of Rhode Island boasted General Nathanael Greene as an original officer. The Guards distinguished themselves at the Siege of Boston and elsewhere. In 1807 Colonel David Pinniger refused an order to select six guardsmen for federal service, asserting that the Guards's charter permitted the call up of the entire unit, but not individual soldiers. Pinniger's refusal precipitated his court martial and that of the fellow officers who supported him. All were removed from office without further penalty. The guards elected replacement officers; no one went into the U.S. Army. This pamphlet was published by the officers after the "unfavorable result" of the court martial in order to protect their reputations. All aspects of the case are covered.

        TWELVE PAMPHLETS ABOUT THE WHEELING BRIDGE CONTROVERSY BETWEEN VIRGINIA AND PENNSYLVANIA.

      - This important case arose from the competition between Pennsylvania and Virginia for domination of the developing trade with western markets. The State of Virginia authorized construction of a bridge from Wheeling across the Ohio River. The State of Pennsylvania claimed that such a bridge would impede free passage of steamboats to Pittsburgh, a major terminus of such trade. Pennsylvania sought to enjoin construction, on the ground that the bridge was "a nuisance and an obstruction to interstate commerce on a navigable river" [II Warren, The Supreme Court in United States History 234]. For years Pennsylvania had engaged in an ambitious program of canal, railroad, and turnpike improvements; the bridge, it was claimed, would diminish the value of these State-sponsored modes of transportation. The Supreme Court commissioned R. Hyde Walworth to determine whether the suspension bridge "is or is not an obstruction to the free navigation of the Ohio river, at the place where such bridge is erected across the same, by vessels propelled by steam or sails, engaged, or which may be engaged, in the commerce or navigation of said river; and, if it is such an obstruction, what change, or alteration, if any, can be made, consistent with the continuance of the bridge across the said river, that will remove the obstruction to the free navigation by such vessels." Congress also weighed in on the issue, scheduling hearings at which the competing positions were aired passionately and in detail. "Few cases have ever excited greater interest or seemed to affect more extensively the internal commerce of the country than this celebrated controversy." [Id. at 235]. The Supreme Court held that Virginia's enabling Act unconstitutionally conflicted with Congress's power to regulate navigation, and enjoined the construction as a nuisance. Dissenting, Chief Justice Taney argued that Congress's failure to exercise its regulatory power left Virginia free to authorize construction of the bridge which, in any event, Pennsylvania had failed to prove was a public nuisance.

        MINERS' TEN COMMANDMENTS. A NEW VERSE-ION, INCLUDING A PREAMBLE, BY-LAWS AND DECREE. BY CADEZ ORION [caption title]

      [San Francisco]: Britton & Rey, 1852. Pictorial letter sheet, 10 3/4 x 8 1/4 inches, on white lined paper. With the blank conjugate leaf attached. Small closed tear in upper inner corner. Old dampstains. Trimmed a bit close at the bottom and top edges, shaving a bit of the "19" in the upper outer corner (as usual). Good. A scarce California pictorial letter sheet, putting a spin on the popular motif of the "miner's ten commandments." The theme was popularized by James Mason Hutchings, who published several letter sheets in the same vein. The present letter sheet contains a new version of the "ten commandments," advising miners (in a gently satirical tone) of how they should behave in the mining camps, so far from their homes and from civilization. A preamble by "Cadez Orion" of eight verses adds the story of "Uncle Zenas," formerly of Maine but gone to the gold fields to make his fortune. The upper quarter of this sheet carries a trio of images, dominated in the center by an elephant, a recurring image in Gold Rush iconography. Standing atop the elephant is a man, sun rays emanating from his head, holding a shovel in one hand and two tablets bearing the commandments in the other. On the left is an image of a miner washing his clothes in a stream, while on the right a miner cooks over an outdoor fire. This letter sheet is number 19 in the Britton & Rey numbered series (see Baird, p.27 for the full list). BAIRD, CALIFORNIA'S PICTORIAL LETTER SHEETS 169.

        Autograph letter signed ("C. Rammelsberg"). Berlin, 23. II. 1852.

      1852. 8vo. 2 pp. To the American geologist James Dwight Dana, in German, forwarding some of his recent work on minerals for publication in the American Journal of Science, edited by Benjamin Silliman and James Dwight Dana: "I am enclosing a small treatise on petalis [probably petalite] and spadumen, which I ask you to include in the American Journal of Science that you and the Messrs. Silliman edit. Like earlier researchers, I received different results for spadumen than Mr. Brush did with the two varieties from Massachusetts. I would be most happy to get hold of some of the American spadumen for the purpose of analysis and ask you if you might be able to get me a few pieces of it and send them either directly to me or to Mr. Krantz in Bonn. - The Mineralogical Notices which you have sent me several times have always been very welcome and I am most grateful for them. You will find a few small essays included with this letter, others are being printed right now, e. g., the analysis of Childrenite where I proved that fluor as substitute for oxygen enters a compound. - I would have liked to write the treatise in English, but I worried about making too many mistakes. You will no doubt have an opportunity to have it translated and to revise it [...]" (transl.). Rammelsberg did research on crystallography, analytical chemistry and mineralogy, and wrote several important texts in these fields. - In very good condition.

        Typed Letter Signed on "National American Women Suffrage Association" stationery, 4to, Rochester,New York, October 18, 1903

      Anthony expresses her support for co-education. She opposed educating male and female students separately because she saw that the education offered to the male sex was superior to that offered to females. As a proponent of co-education and critic of gender segregated classrooms, Anthony writes this letter to Greek scholar E. M. Tomlinson who had apparently asked for her "History of Woman Suffrage," "Vol. IV cloth." Anthony thinks she had, "presented the first three volumes to Mrs. [Abigail] Allen twenty years ago...." She asks if Tomlinson has "a set of my Life and Work," explaining why he should own the books: "you ought to have it so every student could find it on your shelves when he comes to the inevitable moment of writing a composition on the question of woman's rights...." She addresses co-education vs. same sex education in relation to Alfred University and the University of Chicago. "Alfred was one of the first places that I visited in 1852 and I have watched your institution with a great deal of interest ever since...I do not suppose the question of segregating the sexes has ever been thought of in your college. It is pitiful to see how Chicago University with Dr. Harper at its head is setting an example of segregation. Did you notice that instead of increasing the number of young men of the city and from the East he is 700 short of as many as he has last year? I should think that would be a lesson to him; but none are so bling [likely a typo for blind] as those who will not see, so I suppose he will not charge the lessening of the number of students to his invidious action with regard to women...." She signs, "Susan B. Anthony." A strong ending to a fine letter on women's education. Several words in the section criticizing sex segregated classrooms at Chicago are underlined with ink similar to the ink she used in her signature. It is possible Anthony, herself underscored these words. Alfred University founded in 1836 in Alfred, NY, was co-ed from its beginning. Anthony refers to Abigail Allen whom she met when she lectured at Alfred in 1870. Allen supported women's rights causes as did her husband Jonathan Allen, Alfred University's second president. Anthony also mentions her trip in 1852 to her first women's rights convention in Syracuse, NY. Anthony's correspondent, Edward Mulford Tomlinson (1842-1910), was a professor of Greek at Alfred University and a University Trustee. Alfred, New York, is a town located less than 100 miles from Rochester, where Anthony and the National America Woman Suffrage Association were based. Anthony also refers to the University of Chicago's first president, William Rainey Harper (1856-1906).

        Autograph Letter, Signed, To Jeremiah Morrow, Cincinnati, August 10.

      1852 - Memories of Ohio Governor Jeremiah Morrow by by an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court McLean, John [1785-1861]. [Adair, Robert F.]. Morrow, Jeremiah (1771-1852)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, To Robert F. Adair, Cincinnati, OH, August 10, 1852]. Single leaf folded to form bifolium and a single leaf, all 10-1/2" x 8-1/2," franked on verso of single leaf. Content in neat hand to rectos and versos of bifolium leaves. Light toning, vertical and horizontal fold lines, small losses at wax seal causing very small text loss, but no loss of legibility, minor edgewear and a few short tears to margins. This letter is accompanied by a contemporary 4-1/2" x 3-1/2" copperplate portrait of McLean (on a 9" x 6" leaf). $950. * A substantive 4-1/2 page letter by U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice John McLean about late Ohio congressman, senator, and governor, Jeremiah Morrow, who died five months earlier. McLean had served in Congress with Morrow. Appointed by President Andrew Jackson, McLean is best remembered today as the senior Supreme Court justice, and one of only two justices, who dissented in Dred Scott v. Sanford. During the 1850s, when Chief Justice Roger B. Taney was frequently ill, McLean who presided over the Court. In this letter, McLean replies to a query about Morrow from Robert F. Adair and here appends a four-page memoir of his late friend. Robert F. Adair of Maysville, Kentucky may possibly be silversmith Robert Farriss Adair (1833-1907). Justice McLean writes: "Many years ago I was well acquainted with Mr. Morrow, having served with him in Washington, and lived in the same county with him in Ohio." McLean directs Adair to write to "Howard Dunlevy Esquire" who lived only six miles from Governor Morrow. Almost like a postscript, McLean writes "[a] very hasty sketch of Morrow." Much more than a sketch, it almost four pages in length and includes biographical facts and, more interestingly, personal observations, anecdotes and judgments. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        TRAITÉ PRATIQUE DE PHOTOGRAPHIE SUR VERRE, D'APRÈS LES DERNIERS PERFECTIONNEMENTS

      Paris: Ch. Chevalier, Puech et Cie, Guilloux, 1852. First edition. 8vo., 61 pp. Original printed paper wrappers with a release stamp from the S F P [Société Française de Photographie] indicating that this was a duplicate and released for sale in 1971; with the original bookseller's stamp on the front wrapper. The SFP stamp is repeated on the title page, as is the ownership stamp of A. [Aymar] de la Baume Pluvinel. Occasional light foxing, else very good. Housed in a new cloth clamshell box with printed labels. Jules Couppier, a chemist, was a founding member of the Sociéte Française de Photographie (1854) an outgrowth of the first photographic society in the world, Sociéte Héliographique, founded in 1851. In 1848, Abel Niépce de Saint-Victor, the second cousin of the first photographer, J. N. Niépce, and a founder of the Sociéte Héliographique, published a paper in the journal of the Academy of Sciences on his experiments with albumen coated glass plates for obtaining a negative from which a sharper and tonally richer positive print could be obtained. A distinct advantage of this process was that it allowed for the manufacture of the plates in advance of their use; however, the plate had a low sensitivity to light, therefore portraiture was not possible. In this, one of the earliest full manuals covering the albumen negative on glass and positive print processes, Couppier has dedicated it appropriately to Niépce de Saint-Victor. As a skilled chemist, Couppier was able to improve upon many of the earlier difficulties of sensitivity that had limited this process; improved formulas are provided. Couppier is known today for his albumen glass plate stereographs; one from 1859 taken in the cemetery of Melegnano, showing the bodies of over 2000 combatants, is a harsh testament to the brutality of war. The copy of Aymar de la Baume Pluvinel (1860 - 1938) an accomplished astronomer and astrophotographer, the first to photograph the surface of Mars through a telescope, and author of scientific works, including, LA THÉORIE DES PROCÉDÉS PHOTOGRAPHIQUES.

        Ferrocarril Alar del Rey - Santander. Pequeño archivo que consta de 12 documentos que se detallan a continuación.

      - El Ferrocarril Alar del Rey – Santander tardó 14 años en construirse, de 1852 a 1866, y tuvo 22 años de vida propia. La idea original contemplaba construir una línea que comunicara Madrid y Santander. En 1845 George Stephenson, inventor de la máquina de vapor y constructor de la primera línea ferroviaria pública del mundo, visitó Santander, junto a varios ingenieros ingleses, para ver la viabilidad del proyecto. Las dificultades técnicas por la complicada orografía y el poco apoyo económico hicieron que abandonaran el proyecto. El Canal de Castilla era la principal vía de comunicación para las zonas de producción castellanas. Hasta Alar llegaban trigos y harinas que se acumulaban a la espera de ser transportados por carreteras y recuas de mulas hasta el puerto de Santander. Surgió entonces la idea de hacer el enlace por ferrocarril y el 16 de abril de 1845, una Real Orden autoriza al marqués de Remisa, empresario del Canal de Castilla, a construir un ferrocarril entre Alar y Santander. Se creó la Sociedad Crédito Cántabro promotora y concesionaria del proyecto. Aquí ofrecemos trece documentos, tres de ellos manuscritos, de gran rareza y fundamentales para documentar el proyecto. 1.

        History of the Commerce and Town of Liverpool, and of the rise of manufacturing industry in the adjoining counties.

      - London, Longman & Liverpool, the Author 1852. Fat octavo contemporary diced calf (rubbed); xvi,844,12,13pp, litho frontispiece and 3 folding plans (one with a piece torn from a corner). The author's copy. Only edition and, with this copy, as close as we will get to a planned second edition in 1881. On front blanks Baines has written the preface for the second edition, the title has been marked up for a second edition and much of the text annotated and corrected. All this is in shaky but not infirm pencil and the annotations, extensive in the earlier pages, diminish and peter out at page 288 (the end of chapter nine). Baines died in October 1881, aged about 75 - this was clearly his last and too ambitious project. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

With Twenty-Seven illustrations on Wood by George Cruikshank, Esq. London: John Cassell, 1852. First London and first Cruikshank illustrated edition in the original thirteen weekly parts.

Bound without the two page Cassell's publication advertisement at end of part 6. Publisher's buff printed wrappers. A few spines with expert and almost invisible restoration, otherwise near fine. Chemised in a quarter green morocco slip case. The finest example that we have seen in over fifty years. Scarce, with only a handful of copies in parts appearing at auction over the past forty-five years - all apparently lacking the same 2 page advertisement at the end of part 6. Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly, is an anti-slavery novel by American author Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811-1896). Published in 1852, the novel "helped lay the groundwork for the Civil War", according to Will Kaufman in his book The Civil War in American Culture. Uncle Tom's Cabin had first appeared as a 40-week serial in an American newspaper, The National Era, an abolitionist periodical, starting with the June 5, 1851, issue. It was originally intended a a shorter narrative that would run for only a few weeks. Stowe expanded the story significantly, however, and it was instantly popular, such that several protests were sent to the Era office when she missed an issue. Because of the story's popularity, the publisher John p. Jewett contacted Stowe about turning the serial into a book. While Stowe questioned if anyone would read Uncle Tom's Cabin in book form, she eventually consented to the request. Convinced the book would be popular, Jewett made the unusual decision (for that time) to have six full-page illustrations by Hammatt Billings engraved for the first printing. Published in book form on March 20, 1852, the novel sold 3,000 copies on that day alone, and soon sold out its complete print run. In the first year of publication, 300,000 copies of Uncle Tom's Cabin were sold. At that point, however, "demand came to an unexpected halt... No more copies were produced for many years, and if, as is claimed, Abraham Lincoln greeted Stowe in 1862 as 'the little woman who wrote the book that made this great war,' the work had effectively been out of print for many years." Jewett went out of business, and it was not until Ticknor and Fields put the work back in print in November 1862 that demand began again to increase. The book was translated into all major languages, and in the United States it became the second best-selling book after the Bible. A number of the early editions carried an introduction by Rev James Sherman, a Congregational minister in London noted for his abolitionist views. Uncle Tom's Cabin sold equally well in Britain, with the first London edition appearing in May 1852 and selling 200,000 copies. In a few years over 1.5 million copies of the book were in circulation in Britain, although most of these were infringing copies (a similar situation occurred in the United States). "In the emotion-charged atmosphere of mid-nineteenth century America Uncle Tom's Cabin exploded like a bombshell. To those engaged in fighting slavery it appeared as an indictment of all the evils inherent in the system they opposed; to pro-slavery forces it was a slanderous attack on 'the Southern way of life'. Dramatized versions, exaggerating the cruelties depicted in the novel, appeared almost immediately on the stage adding to the righteous indignation, whether aimed at slavery or at the book's author, which swept the country. Whatever its weakness as a literary work - structural looseness and excess of sentiment among them - the social impact of Uncle Tom's Cabin on the United States was greater than that of any book before or since" (Printing and the Mind of Man, 332).

        TRAITÉ PRATIQUE DE PHOTOGRAPHIE SUR VERRE, D'APRÈS LES DERNIERS PERFECTIONNEMENTS

      Ch. Chevalier, Puech et Cie, Guilloux, Paris 1852 - 8vo., 61 pp. Original printed paper wrappers with a release stamp from the S F P [Société Française de Photographie] indicating that this was a duplicate and released for sale in 1971; with the original bookseller's stamp on the front wrapper. The SFP stamp is repeated on the title page, as is the ownership stamp of A. [Aymar] de la Baume Pluvinel. Occasional light foxing, else very good. Housed in a new cloth clamshell box with printed labels. Jules Couppier, a chemist, was a founding member of the Sociéte Française de Photographie (1854) an outgrowth of the first photographic society in the world, Sociéte Héliographique, founded in 1851. In 1848, Abel Niépce de Saint-Victor, the second cousin of the first photographer, J. N. Niépce, and a founder of the Sociéte Héliographique, published a paper in the journal of the Academy of Sciences on his experiments with albumen coated glass plates for obtaining a negative from which a sharper and tonally richer positive print could be obtained. A distinct advantage of this process was that it allowed for the manufacture of the plates in advance of their use; however, the plate had a low sensitivity to light, therefore portraiture was not possible. In this, one of the earliest full manuals covering the albumen negative on glass and positive print processes, Couppier has dedicated it appropriately to Niépce de Saint-Victor. As a skilled chemist, Couppier was able to improve upon many of the earlier difficulties of sensitivity that had limited this process; improved formulas are provided. Couppier is known today for his albumen glass plate stereographs; one from 1859 taken in the cemetery of Melegnano, showing the bodies of over 2000 combatants, is a harsh testament to the brutality of war.The copy of Aymar de la Baume Pluvinel (1860 - 1938) an accomplished astronomer and astrophotographer, the first to photograph the surface of Mars through a telescope, and author of scientific works, including, LA THÉORIE DES PROCÉDÉS PHOTOGRAPHIQUES.
