A close friend of Charles Darwin, he was Darwin's earliest confidant on the ideas expounded in "On Origin of Species", and it is to Darwin this work is dedicated. In later life Hooker was Director of the Kew Gardens, President of the Royal Society (1873-1878), and with George Bentham he prepared the entirely new Genera Plantarum. Over his lifetime he received the highest honours available to a botanist.His brilliance showed itself early when at the age of only 22 he accompanied Sir James Ross's expedition to the Antarctic, following which he published a 6 volume work on the flora (including that of New Zealand, Tasmania and the Auckland Islands). Throughout his career he travelled widely in the interests of botany and introduced many plants from his expeditions to Britain. It was Dr Falconer, the Superintendent of the H.E.I.C. Botanic Garden in Calcutta who drew Hooker's attention to Sikkim which is the subject of these volumes. "He drew my attention to the fact that we were ignorant even of the geography of the central and eastern parts of these mountains, while all to the north was involved in a mystery equally attractive to the traveller and the naturalist."Joseph Hooker spent two very successful years in Sikkim. Among the legacies of his work in Sikkim is this marvellous work and the plants he introduced to the western world, many of which are now commonly used to add splendour to gardens across the world today but prior to his journey were completely unknown outside their native regions.

        Lettsomian Lectures on Insanity

      John Churchill, London 1854 - 160, [32] p. 23 cm. Red cloth with blank impressing. Darkened spine has chips at head and softening of tail. Corners bumped. Inscribed by author across from title page. Pages uncut. Small tear at top of title. Bookbinder's stamp on rear pastedown. A little light foxing, mainly to first pages and text block edge. Psychiatrist Forbes Benignus Winslow was an authority on lunacy during the Victorian era. The second lecture in this book, "On the Medical Treatment of Insanity," was a subject very close to his heart. In 1847 he had opened two private lunatic asylums at Hammersmith, where he employed the humane method of treating the mentally ill which is now universal, but was then regarded as an unusual innovation.

        PHOTOGRAPHIE: TRAITÉ NOUVEAU, THÉORIQUE ET PRACTIQUE, DES PROCÉDÉS ET MANIPULATIONS SUR PAPIER SEC - HUMIDE; SUR VERRE AU COLLODION - A L'ALBUMINE

      Paris: Lerebours et Secretan, 1854. Édition nouvelle renfermant tous les perfectionnements apportés a cert art jusqu'a ce jour. 8vo., [ii], title page, [v], [1] 387 pp. Original printed wrappers, bound in modern half morocco and marbled paper over boards with the spine in six compartments and titled in gilt. There is a moderate stain at the lower blank margin of the first few leaves, the blank edges of p. 17 - 32 are toned, and there is intermittent foxing.A very good copy. Gustave Le Gray (1820 - 1882) began his artistic studies in the early 1840s under François-Edouard Picot and Paul Delaroche. He took up the photographic arts in 1847, first with the daguerreotype. He was exposed to paper processes as a sitter for Henri le Secq who was then experimenting with variations upon Talbot's calotype process. By 1849, his proficiency with the chemistry of the various processes led him to teaching others, among them Maxime du Camp, and Léon de Laborde. In 1850, he published his first treatise heralding the waxed paper negative and the use of the glass plate negative, TRAITÉ PRATIQUE DE PHOTOGRAPHIE SUR PAPIER ET SUR VERRE... a mere 42 pp.This basic text was expanded and enlarged upon in this 1854 edition, which includes various dry and wet paper negative processes, positive printing papers, negatives using collodion and albumen glass plates, a large section on chemicals, the stereoscope, and an excellent treatment of photomechanical techniques to date. Bibliographically speaking, there are four works by Le Gray published in the original French, one each year from 1850 - 1854. The titles vary, sometimes only slightly while the contents continued to expand as new processes were included. Several references cite the 1850 and the 1852 titles as being distinct works, while the subsequent printings are second editions. This would explain why this 1854 edition is labeled "Nouvelle..." by Le Gray and why Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, lists two titles, No. 50, 1850, and No. 61, 1852. Roosens and Salu note separate titles, this being No. 5970. WorldCat locates only ten copies of this 1854 title, with the Metropolitan Museum of Art being the only U. S. holding.

        Memoirs and Correspondence of Major-General Sir William Nott. Commander of the Army of Candahar, and Envoy at the Court of the King of Oude. Edited at the Request of Sir William Nott's Daughters, Letitia Nott and Charlotte Bower, from Documents in their Exclusive Possession.

      London: Hurst and Blackett, Publishers, 1854 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original red linen-grain cloth, title gilt to spines, blind panelling with large laurel wreath centre-tool to all boards, cream surface-paper endpapers. Lightly rubbed and soiled, crumpled head and tail of the spines, frontispiece to volume I browned as usual, that to volume II lightly foxed, light toning throughout, a very good set. Title pages with ownership inscriptions of Robert Archibald Trotter, late 43rd Native Infantry, who commanded a company in the defence of Kalat-i-Ghilzai. Trotter was promoted captain in 1853, retired 1862. A bright clean copy, unusual in the original cloth, and with an attractive provenance. Engraved frontispiece to each, portrait to volume I, a view of the fortress at Ghuzni to volume II. First edition of this uncommon memoir, an important source for the first Afghan War. Nott was commissioned as ensign in the East India Company's army in 1800, and posted to the 20th Bengal Native Infantry, serving with them in the expedition to the west coast of Sumatra in 1805. From 1811 until 1825 he served as "superintendent of native pensions and paymaster of family pensions at Barrackpore", but after leave in England returned to India to take command of the 20th NI. Despite having "been so long in a semi-military post, he brought his regiment into such a state of efficiency that his services were required to do the same for other regiments. He commanded a succession of native infantry regiments and on 1 December 1829 was promoted colonel" (ODNB). During the first Afghan War Nott commanded the troops at Kandahar and Quetta, sending out "small successful expeditions from both locales against rebellious tribes" (Riddick, Who Was Who); and in 1842 was placed in command of "all the troops in Lower Afghanistan and Sindh, and of the political officers there". His operations in defence of Kandahar, and in relief of Kabul were rewarded by his appointment to the residency and Lucknow with the title of envoy to the king of Oudh; and the presentation of "a valuable sword in the name of the British government" by Lord Ellenborough, who told Wellington that he considered Nott to be superior to all the other generals. "Ellenborough was right. Despite his cantankerous nature Nott was by far the best general in the Anglo–Afghan War. He was also a protagonist of the sepoy, whom he compared favourably with the British soldier." In 1844 he was created GCB, voted an annuity of £1,000 by the directors of the Company, and granted the freedom of the City of London. He died aged 63 on New Year's Day 1845. Bruce 4060.

First edition in English, first published Madrid 1820–1; far from common in the market. Condé was the director of the library of the Escorial. His work is "characterized by a strong sympathy for Arab culture.

With the bookplates of Catholic scholar Joseph M. Gleason to the front pastedowns, and his pencilled critique at the beginning of the text of volume I: "It has become the fashion to decry this work in our times, but most of the criticism is parrot-like.

"Includes Porter's unpublished journals and his very interesting papers and correspondence; volume II contains Larpent's work on the progress of reform in Turkey, much of it based on Ubicini's Lettres sur la Turquie (1851–4)" (Atabey). Porter (1710–1776) met Lord Carteret through a mutual friend, and was "employed by him on several secret commercial missions to the continent In 1741 he was sent to Vienna to assist Sir Thomas Robinson in the negotiations between Austria and Prussia; he returned the following year to Vienna on a special mission to Maria Theresa" (ODNB). He was appointed ambassador at Constantinople in 1746 and remained in the post until 1762, winning praise from Sir William Jones for protecting Britain's mercantile interests in the Ottoman empire. On his retirement in he devoted himself to scientific and literary pursuits, but was forced to decline the nomination for the presidency of the Royal Society in 1768, "not feeling himself of sufficient consequence or rich enough to live in such a style as he conceived that the president of such a society should maintain".

      Mallet-Bachelier, Gendre et Successeur de Bachelier, Paris 1854 - 8vo., xvi, 296 pp., 16 pp. publisher's catalogue, charts and tables. Bound in quarter black morocco and marbled paper over boards. The spine is six compartments and titled in gilt. Original printed stiff wrappers are bound in. An occasional light spot of foxing. A fine and bright copy. Charles Louis Barreswil, 1817 - 1870, studied chemistry under Jules Pelouze, and later directed his laboratory, working with Claude Bernard. After 1849, his interests moved from physiological chemistry to those applied to industry and photography. Alphonse Davanne (1824 - 1912) was trained as a chemist, and by 1852, his attention was exclusively devoted to photographic chemistry. In 1854, he was a founding member of the Société Française de Photographie. In 1852, Barreswil, with Lerebours and Lemercier, successfully produced halftone photolithographs in a portfolio of architectural views, the first portfolio to use the halftone lithographic process. The definitive volume to date on photographic chemistry, photographic papers, plates, the collodion and albumen processes, as well as photomechanical processes, including the halftone lithographic method. This proved to be a popular encyclopedia of photographic chemistry and went through four editions, with the last in 1864.Roosens and Salu No. 1835.

This would explain why this 1854 edition is labeled "Nouvelle." by Le Gray and why Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, lists two titles, No. 50, 1850, and No. 61, 1852. Roosens and Salu note separate titles, this being No. 5970. WorldCat locates only ten copies of this 1854 title, with the Metropolitan Museum of Art being the only U. S. holding. Édition nouvelle renfermant tous les perfectionnements apportés a cert art jusqu'a ce jour.

Auguste Belloc, born in Paris in 1800, was a portrait miniaturist, watercolor painter and photographer of the nude, versed in the daguerreian and calotype processes. He was one of the founding members of the Société Héliographique, 1851, and its successor, the Société Française de Photographie, 1854. In the 1850s he was inventing, manufacturing and selling photographic supplies and equipment, which he continued until his death in 1868. He was a prolific writer on photographic theory, processes, and techniques. In this, his first published book, Belloc provides an historical introduction of photographic invention, an extensive manual on the "wet" collodion process, the preparation of various positive printing papers, and a practical guide to photographic chemistry. WorldCat locating twelve holdings, with George Eastman House, Gettry Research Institute, Boston Public Library, Franklin Institute, Tennessee State Library, National Gallery of Canada, and the Biblioteca Nacional Mexico being the North American holders.

Following the annexation of Texas to the United States, Pease was elected to the Texas House of Representatives in 1845 and reelected in 1847. In 1849, He ran for the Texas Senate from District 11 (Brazoria and Galveston counties), but lost to John B. Jones, who was sworn in 5 November. Pease contested the election, was declared the winner, and was sworn in 4 days later on 9 November. Pease first ran for governor in 1851 but withdrew from the race two weeks before the election. He was elected in each of the next two elections, 1853 and 1855 as a Unionist. As governor, he paid off the state debt and established the financial foundation that the state would later use to finance its schools and colleges. Some would even say that Pease was the "Savior of the Texas economy." (Wikipedia).

        Central Route to the Pacific

      1854. First Edition . HEAP, Gwinn Harris. Central Route to the Pacific, from the Valley of the Mississippi to California: Journal of the Expedition of E.F. BealeÂ… and Gwinn Harris Heap, from Missouri to California, in 1853. Philadelphia: Lippincott, Grambo, 1854. Octavo, original dark green cloth, printed endpapers with publisherÂ’s advertisements. Housed in a custom clamshell box. $11,000.First edition of this fundamental exploring narrative, with large folding map (present in only some copies) and 13 tinted lithographic plates. One of the first works to show the Middle Rocky Mountain region and to indicate the 1849 Death Valley pioneer route.This 1853 expedition was under the command of Edward Fitzgerald Beale, the legendary frontiersman and close friend of Kit Carson and John Fremont. Heap was a cousin of BealeÂ’s; he kept a journal of the march, which was serialized in the National Intelligencer in November and December of 1853. The expedition was to explore the central route to the Pacific Coast. Leaving Westport, Missouri, in May, with twelve riflemen, Beale went first to Council Grove. From there he passed up the Arkansas River to the mouth of the Huerfano, about twenty miles east of present-day Pueblo, Co, and thence to the San Luis Valley, and from there to the coast (Blackmar). “Of all the journals and diaries telling of the crossing of the Mojave Desert, none in our opinion is comparable to the Heap (journal) in sheer readability and in picturesque descriptive quality” (Edwards). “Some of the areas explored are here described for the first time” (Graff 1837). “Heap accompanied his journal with a very interesting mapÂ… This map was not issued with all copies of HeapÂ’s book, and has received less attention than it deservesÂ… This is the first attempt on a published map to show the 1849 Death Valley pioneer route” (Wheat 808). Of interest are HeapÂ’s notes in the appendix regarding the usefulness of camels for desert expeditions. Because of his advocacy, Beale was commanded to take 25 camels with him in a later expedition to California in 1857, which he did reluctantly; this was the source of the famous “Camel Corps.” Plate VIII, Coochatope Gate, mislabeled “Coochatope Pass,” as issued. With 32 pages of publisherÂ’s advertisements bound at rear, as issued. Howes H378. Sabin 31175. Graff 1837. Wagner-Camp 235. Eberstadt 121:138. Cowan, 107. Faint dampstain affecting corner of plates. Skillful repair to spine ends. An extremely good copy in the original cloth.
