        Acta de la Junta General de Autoridades. funcionarios publicos, prelados eclesiasticos, gefes militares y diputaciones de las corpaciones, en que se aclamo Presidente Perpetuo de la Republica de Guatemala al Exmo. Sr. Capitan Gral. Don Rafael Carerra

      [Guatemala]: n.p., 1854. Broadside. A very good copy, minor edgewear, fold, closed tear.. 1 sheet. Dated 21 October 1854. Declaration followed by list of authorities within elaborate border. The larger (by nearly four times) and more elaborate of two versions of this broadside proclaiming Rafael Carrera as President for life (see our item 43557). José Rafael Carrera Turcios (1814-1865) was the president of Guatemala in two distinct periods: 1844 to 1848, when his policies attempted to balance liberal aspirations against the conservative elite and from 1851 to 1865, during which period he was president for life, when he closely allied himself with the conservative establishment, the church hierarchy, and the rich landowners. As the most influential politician in Guatemala, with virtually monarchal powers, Carrera also intervened in the development of his neighboring states to aid the conservative rule in El Salvador and Honduras. No copies of this version located on OCLC, COPAC, European Libraries, CCILA., or any Latin American Libraries, though the smaller version can be found at Tulane and Univ. of Texas.

        THE RUCK-KEENE FAMILY ALBUM

      This is a very interesting Album from the family of the Rev. Benjamin Ruck Keene, born June 1826 at Buckland Surrey, the Son of Charles Edmund Keene and Rebecca Frances Shiffner, he Studied at Cambridge University then went on to be Rector of Buckland Surrey, with other posts as Deacon at Chichester, Vicar at Bentley Suffolk, , Rector at Erwarton with Woolverston Suffolk, Vicar of Newant Gloucestershire, Rector of Copford Essex, the family home of Ruck Manor in 1888, by Royal licence on 8th July 1841 he assumed the surname Ruck, an addition to his patronymic Keene, he died in 1888, the family home of Ruck Manor was then passed on to his third son Revd' Benjamin Ruck Keene Rector of Copford Colchester Essex. The Album which seems mainly to date to the period around the 1870s, is packed full of very interesting photographs of the Ruck Keene and Shiffner family, and of the travels through Europe and New Zealand, at the opening of the album there are a number of pages of photographs of Queen Victoria and the Royal Family, The Keene family Home , others of Hamsey, and Hamsey Rectory, Cardean, Newick Park and Church, The Ketches, one of the photographs shows a horse drawn cart, on the side of the cart are the words "Major Keene, Tiddington Oxfordshire", he was a Major in the 2 Dragoon Guards, and interestingly was based at Shrewsbury in Shropshire in 1891, ( it was in Shrewsbury that this album was acquired by me), other photos of Henley on Thames, Edinburgh, Killiecrankie, Dunkeld, Gloucester. Ashby, Malvern, Boscastle, Bottallack Mine, Mullion Cove Cornwall, The Solent, Ventnor Isle of Wight, Shanklin, Easbourne, Oban, York, Warwick, Guys Cliffe Mill, Warwick Castle, Chester and a photo of the Bishop of Chester dated 1875.

His travels also included New Zealand with photos of Waipara Valley, Wellington, Swyncombe house and members of the Kaikora Bench, Mr St. Hills house at Wellington & other scenic photos of New Zealand and a Signed Photograph of Sir Frederick Aloysius Weld the Prime Minister of New Zealand.

Also a well recorded trip to Italy and Seriate, with a group of photos of the Tasca Family, including Conte & Contessa Tasca, and family members Maria, Giulio, Emilio &c at Seriate, along with quite a number of original paintings and drawings of the area dated 1854 -1864, also the Keene family must have met with Giuseppe Garibaldi the Italian General, politician and nationalist, as there is a Signed photo of Garibaldi with an inscription dedicated to Miss Ruck-Keene dated 1862, with photos of Conte Ottavio Tasca, photographs of Venice, Pisa, Rome, Florence, Hyeres, Mentone, Sorrento, Matteranerthal, Seelisberg Switzerland in 1866, Brunnen, Treeves, Lucerne, Wellhorn, Cairo Egypt, Khedives Summer Palace in Turkey, there is one page of the album with a photograph of a child in a horse drawn buggy with hand drawn characters from "Alice in Wonderland" decorating the page the Mad Hatter and the White Rabbit. The Album is bound in a recent half leather binding titled and decorated in gilt to the spine, measuring just over 12 inches tall, illustrated with over 650 photographs , Paintings and drawings, a number of the photographs have very nice hand painted decorated borders. Regarding the condition, there is a small blemish to the leather on the upper cover else the binding is in excellent condition, internally there is evidence of a very small number of the photographs having been lost over the years else in good condition, many of the photographs are not captioned, but one or two of the loose ones that have been tipped in again have had pencilled notes on the reverse, there is a possibility others do as well, a previous owner of the album has carried out some family research and has added a few pencilled notes to some of the family photograph pages with names and dates of various family members, with a loosely inserted printed biography of the Reverend Benjamin Ruck-Keene, A fine Victorian Family Album that would be worthy of further research and study

        Kreuzesblumen katholischer Legenden von Dr. I. F. Castelli. (Noch ungedrucktes Manuskript). [Wien, nicht vor 1854].

      1854. Eigenh. Manuskript. Kalligraphiertes Titel- und Widmungsblatt, 216 nicht numerierte Seiten. Mit einem lithographierten Portrait des Dichters. Zeitgenössischer Leinenband mit goldgeprägter Deckelvignette, Rückentitel und -vergoldung. Blindgeprägte Deckelfileten und Eckstücke, Seidenmoireevorsätze, dreiseitiger Goldschnitt. 4to. Das hier vorliegende Werk sollte - entgegen Castellis Annahme am Titelblatt - ungedruckt bleiben; weder bei Kosch, der neben einer Bibliographie der knapp zweihundert veröffentlichten Werke Castellis auch eine Aufstellung der nicht gedruckten bringt, noch bei Wurzbach findet sich ein Hinweis auf den vorliegenden Titel. Wie aus dem kalligraphierten Widmungsblatt hervorgeht, hatte Castelli sein lyrisches Alterswerk zur Dedikation an "Seine Heiligkeit Papst Pius IX." vorgesehen. Das Manuskript durchgehend in der sauberen Kurrentschrift Castellis, die Titel und Überschriften jeweils kalligraphisch hervorgehoben. Einige Gedichte (u. a. "Bischof Ludgerus", "Die Schildwache Gottes" u. "Der Braten") - ebenfalls eigenh. von Castelli - mit blauem Farbstift korrigiert. Der Humorist und Dramatiker Castelli, der zu Lebzeiten als "der populärste Dichter Österreichs" (Wurzbach, zit. nach DBA I, 183, 63) galt und dessen Gedichte u. a. "von Goethe mit Lob bedacht" (Kosch II, 531) wurden, widmete sich im Alter neben der Niederschrift seiner Memoiren vor allem humanistischen und sakralen Werken. - Am fliegenden Vorsatzblatt der eigenhändige Besitzvermerk von Castellis Tochter Emilie Weyringer-Castelli; später Teil der Autographensammlung des berühmten Wiener Mediziners Rudolf Ritter von Vivenot (1807-1884, vgl. DBE). Vivenot, "einer gesuchtesten und beliebtesten Ärzte" seiner Zeit (Wurzbach zit. nach DBA I, 1309, 333), erwarb von Castelli selbst schließlich auch dessen Alterssitz, das Gut Berghof in Lilienfeld (nach Wurzbach in: DBA I, 183, 60 [Castelli] und 1309, 313 [Vivenot]). - Der dekorative Einband an den Ecken und Kapitalen etwas berieben, innen papierbedingt minimal gebräunt; im Ganzen sehr ansprechend gestaltetes und gut erhaltenes Widmungsmanuskript.

        18 eigenh. Briefe mit U. Wien, 1854 und 55.

      1854. Zusammen 30 SS. 8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Finanzrat über Fragen der Bearbeitung, der Zensur und der Veröffentlichung hier nicht beiliegender Aufsätze und Novellen: "Die [...] Umarbeitung der Predigten ist mir sehr schwer geworden, wie Sie wohl aus der Verzögerung der Übergabe derselben werden erraten können [...]" (Br. v. 9. V. 1854). - "Anliegend habe ich die Ehre einen Aufsatz von Fürstedler [Leopold, Wirtschaftsbeamter und Schriftsteller, geb. 1815] - ½ Druckbogen stark - und eine umgearbeitete von der früheren Redaction vorgeschlagene und vom früheren Comité bereits angenommene Erzählung von Scheyrer [Ludwig, Ps., Viola, Schriftsteller, 1811-1874] zu überreichen, welche ungefähr 26-28 Seiten betragen wird. Da der Aufsatz von Fürstedler schon für das nächste Heft bestimmt ist, so bitte ich denselben schnell in Circulation zu setzen [...]" (Br. v. 26. IV. 1854). - Der gebürtige Grazer und Freund von Franz Grillparzer, Anastasius Grün, Friedrich Halm und Paul Heyse war Leiter des "Illustrirten Familienbuchs des österreichischen Lloyd" und schrieb teils unter dem Pseudonym C. Paul Gedichte, Romane und Schauspiele, die wiederholt aufgeführt wurden. Gemeinsam mit Ernst Birk, Eduard von Sacken und Joseph Müller gelang es ihm am 31. Oktober 1848 durch waghalsige Löscharbeiten die von den kaiserlichen Belagerungstruppen in Brand gesetzte Hofbibliothek vor dem Schlimmsten zu bewahren. Vgl. Kosch III, 1971 und Czeike IV, 478.

        Il sognatore

      1854. Cliché - verre, 1854, privo di firma. Magnifica prova, edita dall'editore Sagot & Le Garrec nel 1921, impressa su carta coeva, in perfetto stato di conservazione. Il cliché - verre è una innovativa tecnica incisoria introdotta intorno alla metà dell'Ottocento, che associava l'antica e paziente attività dell'artista incisore all'innovazione portata dall'invenzione della fotografia. Le incisioni su vetro non soltanto sono uno dei capisaldi dell'arte ottocentesca, ma costituiscono, nella loro unità dei valori, l'unico importante e organico tramite che unisce, in campo grafico, Romanticismo e Impressionismo. Hanno inoltre, per il nostro secolo, una speciale importanza culturale e storica: esse sono il primo esempio notevole di unione fra civiltà tecnica e arte. Cliché - verre, or glass print, without signature. A fine impression, printed on contemporary vowe paper, perfect condition. Published by Sagot & Le Garrec in 1921. Cliché - verre is an ambivalent thing, an inanity, the zero point in the graphic arts of the second half of the 19th century. The wide variety of terms used to describe this phenomenon in itself speaks volumes: "dessin sur verre pour photographie", "photogenic drawing", "dessin héliographique", "Hyalographie" (glass print), and "etching on glass". Situated somewhere between drawing, printing and photography, cliché - verre seems from the outset to have eluded firm definition; and even before agreement was reached on a term for it, the phenomenon of cliché - verre had already disappeared.

        Autograph letter signed ("Gve. Flaubert"). No place, "vendredi / 3 h." [c. 1854].

      1854. 8vo. 2 pp. In French, an effusive and impatient letter to a fellow author and collaborator, offering advice on keeping the earnings on his poems, that he cannot access a notebook because he thinks he locked it up in an attic trunk together with the key, and that he is dissatisfied with the preface he wrote. In part, in translation: "Another question. What title? 'Posthumous Poetry' would only be good for a sub-title. I've been ransacking my brains and haven't come up with anything. - I've re-read my preface, with which I am not very satisfied. It seems cold, awkward, and poorly written. In short, it displeases me. I am going to rework it only insofar as correcting it goes. As for doing another one, I haven't got the time, and anyway, I can't see how I could do it better, even though I think it rather shabby." - Light chipping at edges and to centerfold, some small tape repairs to verso.

        [In Arabic script: cheragh haa rewshenaaa der asewl pezeshekea = Illumination of the fundamentals of medicine]. Tabriz (Iran), dar al-Tabae [State Printing Office], 1271 AH [= 1854/55].

      1854. Folio (340 x 210 mm). [1],"194" [= 195], 108 [+ 4 blanks]; "240" [= 280]; [1], 5, 10 pp. A wholly lithographed book in nashk Arabic script, with 3 title-pages (all with decorative borders, the 1st and 3rd with elaborate floral and arabesque decoration), 56 lithographed anatomical illustration plates, a page of floral and arabesque decoration serving as a divisional "title" with almost no text, and the 1st and 2nd title-pages each followed by 2 text pages with elaborate floral and arabesque borders, the first page headed by the crowned Iranian emblem (a lion passant guardant, holding a sword in his right paw, with the sun issuant). Contemporary light brown goatskin, each board with blind single and double fillets forming a panel design, with 3 lozenge-shaped white parchment inlays with arabesque and floral decoration (a large one in the centre and a smaller one above and below), yellow paste-downs with a lithographed panel of elaborate arabesque and floral decoration. Very rare first (and only?) edition of an extensive Persian-language medical handbook by Mirza Mohammad-Vali, chief physician of the army under the fourth Qajar Shah, Nasar al-Din (reigned 1848-1896). It is a pioneering work of Iranian printing, which introduced European anatomical illustration to Persian physicians and helped to promote the study of European medicine, primarily in the army. While the book provides a broad introduction to medicine in general, its most remarkable feature is the collection of anatomical illustrations: 56 lithographed plates showing human skeletons and bones; muscles, tendons and ligaments; internal organs (male and female); and the respiratory, nervous and circulatory systems. They are based on European models such as Vesalius, Scarpa and Fabrici. For centuries Arabic medicine had been more advanced than that in Europe in many respects, so that European advances in the Renaissance were heavily dependent on the study and translation of Ibn Sina (Avicenna) and other ancient Arabic sources. But European advances in anatomy and surgery had proved their benefits in treating shrapnel and gunshot wounds, and European doctors and public health officials were learning to reign in infectious diseases that proved a growing problem in Iran, especially in the modern cities where the greater mobility of domestic and foreign travellers met crowded conditions and sanitary facilities that were no longer able cope. So with growing contacts between Persia and Europe, and with the Persian army increasingly facing and using European artillery in the course of the 19th-century, the government and army became important adherents of the study of European medicine. When the government established the Dal al-Fonun (ancestor of the University of Tehran) in 1851 it included a medical school to train army physicians. Mirza Mohammad-Vali, a physician in the Royal Persian Regiment, was appointed 'hakimbáshiye nezâm (chief physician of the army) by the Shah in 1852. While European missionaries and the Armenian city of New Julfa outside Isfahan had introduced letterpress printing to Iran in the 17th century, efforts to print the connected Arabic script needed to reach an Arabic- or Persian-speaking audience had failed to overcome the technical, economic and linguistic obstacles. Lithographic printing was introduced to Persia at Tabriz in 1821, but matured only in the course of the 1840s, which saw the first extensively illustrated books. The lower capital investment of lithographic production, and the fact that it could more easily render the Arabic scripts in various styles, lead to its dominance for several decades. The present book reflects the growing European influence not only in the illustrations, but also in the decoration. While it uses many traditional Arabic or Persian conventions of layout and ornament, the decorations mix traditional Islamic arabesques with similar designs using less stylized floral motifs that appear to derive from European sources. The Iranian emblem, a sort of coat of arms for the Persian state, may also reflect European influences. Its design had been revised under the second Shah of the Qajar dynasty, Fath-Ali (reigned 1797-1834) and it was apparently at that time that the crown shown here was added. The book has five series of page numbers. Fully fledged title-pages introduce series 1 and 4, but the other one appears near the end of series 3, on its p. 235. Series 5 opens with a decorative panel that may have been intended as a title-page, but one can see only traces of lettering in the central opening (perhaps it was borrowed from another publication and the old text was removed from the stone). In the first series of page numbers 15 was accidentally repeated, and in the second series 4 blank pages (on the backs of pages 33, 66, 81 & 108) were not included in the count. The title-pages are unnumbered but sometimes counted as page 1 and sometimes preceding page 1. A few other pages are unnumbered or misnumbered (including the last page of the third series), but without further disturbing the sequence. Series 2 has no title-page, and at least in the present copy the leaves of the first and second series of pages alternate in groups of a few dozen pages, giving a very irregular pagination. The anatomical plates are inserted in groups between the pages of this combined series 1 and 2. The book is printed on unwatermaked wove paper, possibly machine-made. Bound differently than the pagination suggests, with the first two series of page numbers combined to form a single subdivision (see above). Slightly browned and with a small restoration in the decoration of the main title-page (an owner's stamp may have been removed) but still in good condition. A half dozen pages are slightly dirty and there is an occasional minor marginal defect. The binding is slightly worn and much of the decoration of the inlaid parchment is lost, but the binding remains structurally sound. A rare and remarkable Iranian lithographic medical work, with 56 anatomical plates. For lithography in Iran: Encyclopaedia Iranica (under Lithography, apparently unaware of the present work). For the author: Hormoz Ebrahimnejad, Medicine, Public Health, and the Qâjâr State, p. 51, and ibid., Medicine in Iran ... 1800-1925, (2014), note 131 on p. 190.

The move to make Carrera the "perpetual" president began early in 1854 and was carefully orchestrated so as to bring one governmental department after another, all of the political districts, and the various elements of the military and the clergy into agreement. By October the critical mass was achieved and this document made it official. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, and COPAC fail to locate any copies. Fine, as issued.

        Lettre autographe signée de Lord Alfred Douglas sur Oscar Wilde

      - [WILDE Oscar] (1854 – 1900), écrivain irlandais Lettre autographe signée du poète et amant d’Oscar Wilde Lord Alfred Douglas à l’écrivain Lucie Delarue-Mardrus. Hove. Sussex 23 décembre 1929; 2 pages in-4° à son adresse. Prospectus joint. L’ancien amant choqué par les révélations faites dans le livre « Les amours d’Oscar Wilde » : « ( ) Je vous prie de lire les pages marqués dans les deux exemplaires du Mercure de France du 1er février et du 1er mars. Si après les avoir lu vous ne retirez pas votre livre « Les amours d’Oscar Wilde » de la circulation je serai vraiment étonné. L’histoire que vous racontez dans votre livre en ce qui concerne moi-même est un fatras de fausseté et de mensonges. C’est évidemment une simple reproduction des mensonges reconnus comme mensonges de Harris et de Ross. J’ai répondu définitivement à toutes ces calomnies dans mon « Autobiography » publié à Londres cette année par la maison Martin Sache. Dans ma lettre addressé à vous à la maison d’édition Flammarion je vous ai offert de vous envoyer une exemplaire de ce livre. La traduction française n’est pas encore faite, mais elle doit paraitre bientôt. Si vous voulez lire mon livre en anglais, vous verrez la cruauté de vos calomnies. D’ailleurs si vous voulez vous informer chez Miss Lautra qui connait toute l’histoire, et qui a une exemplaire de mon « Autobiography » vous serai convaincue j’en suis certain, de la terrible injustice que vous m’avez faite ( ) Frank Harris n’ose pas mettre le pied en Angleterre s’il venait dans ce pays il serait immédiatement arrêté et jeté en prison. Ross avant sa mort fut exposé comme le pire des scélérats, un maître-chanteur et un voleur. Il a volé mes lettres à Wilde. » [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The true portraicture of His Ma[jes]ties. royall ship the Soveraigne of the Seas built in the yeare 1637. [London, Peter Pett, 1637/38]. Large engraving (66.5 x 91 cm), printed from two plates on two sheets, assembled to make a single print. With title in English across the head, a slightly different Latin title across the foot (both outside the image area), Payne's name and privilege to the right of the Latin title, and two decorated cartouches with laudatory verses in the upper corners. In passepartout (not mounted) and easily detachable framed (90 x 114 cm).

      BM online cat. 1854,0614.252; H. Busmann, Sovereign of the Seas (2002), pp. 39-46 (locates 7 copies); Chatterton, Chats on naval prints, pp. 56-57. Rare and magnificent engraving of the extraordinary 17th-century English warship the Sovereign of the Seas, shown in full sail, flying 5 flags and more than a dozen pennons. With her more than 1500 tons and more than 100 guns, she surpassed all her contemporaries in size and gun power and cost about ten times as much as an average naval gunship. Besides being "one of the best known naval prints belonging to the seventeenth century ... extraordinarily rich of detail and of the greatest possible interest" (Chatterton), it is also by far the largest English engraved view to survive from the first half of the century. For the engraving, Payne had, most likely, access to the builder's draughts and plans and must have collaborated with Peter Pett for the engraving to be as representative of the ship as possible.Trimmed to the printed image at the two sides, not always completely straight, a few small tears (mostly repaired) at the head and foot, a few tiny spots and a tiny blemish, but still generally good, very attractive and printed in a crisp impression.

        Varna from Kafirlu Tepeh.

      Day & Sons for Colnaghi London 30 August 1854 - Lithograph with contemporary hand-colour and gum arabic. Sheet: c. 45 x 62 cm. Light marginal soiling, closed tears repaired, most marginal or in the caption, only one very slightly touching the image. Fine panorama of Varna and its bay in the beginning of the Crimean War. In the preferred hand-coloured version. Separately published and rare: we could trace only three copies in public institutions, the only coloured copy being in the British Library; Queen Victoria acquired only the tinted version for the Royal Collection and there is another black-and-white copy in Varna's library. We could not trace any other copy on the market or at auction in recent decades. Britain and France declared war on Russia on 28 March 1854. At the beginning of June the allied troops joined Turkish forces at Varna (nowadays Bulgaria, on the west coast of the Black Sea), with the British fleet being under the command of Vice-admiral Sir James Dundas (commander of the British Royal Navy in the Mediterranean and Black Sea). The fleet included the ship HMS Spitfire (previously engaged in the hydrographic studies in Crete), where Lieutenant Arthur Mansell (1815-90) served under the command of Captain 2nd rank Thomas Spratt. The crew of the HMS Spitfire received an order to map major ports on the West coast of the Black Sea - Burgas, Varna, Balchik and Constanta. While mapping the Varna Bay Lieutenant Mansell made a sketch of Varna from the heights of the Frangensko plateau – "Varna from Kafirlu Tepeh". The encampments of the French and British forces around the town and Lake Devna are visible in the middle distance and to the right hand side. Arthur Lucas Mansell was born on August 20, 1815 on the island of Guernsey. Son of Admiral Sir Thomas Mansell (1777-1858), he studied at Elizabeth College in St. Peter Port and the Royal Navy College in Portsmouth. Mansell joined the Royal Navy in 1831 and was promoted to lieutenant in 1841. In this rank he served as hydrographer and cartographer on the Royal Navy ships in the Mediterranean and the Greek archipelago. On September 29, 1855 Mansell himself was promoted to captain 2nd rank and he commanded HMS Tartarus in 1856, then HMS Firefly in 1860, and the hydrographic ship HMS Hydra in 1863. He retired in 1866 reaching the rank of Vice Admiral in 1888. He died on February 28, 1890 in Halkida (Euboea, Greece). For his participation in the Crimean War Arthur Mansell was awarded the Turkish order "Medjidie " of 5th degree in 1858. Not in Abbey.

        A guide to conversation in the English and Chinese languages for the use of Americans and Chinese in California and elsewhere

      Boston Cleveland & London Jewett 1854 - first edition. Small landscape folio, viii, 179 pp., frontispiece, contemporary marbled boards, rebacked preserving spine, red morocco lettering piece, a very good copy of a scarce work. A scarce publication aimed at facilitating communication between Americans and Chinese in California at a time when many Chinese were employed on railway construction. The Chinese characters in the volume were part of the collection of type engraved by Marcellin Legrand. Legrand developed a new set of Chinese matrices by reducing the total number needed to print the 214 Kangxi radicals and another 1100 common characters. These 1.314 characters could then be combined to make compound characters. The font was cut in Paris by Legrand's Chinese students. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The bookdealer, auctioneer and publisher Koenraad Fuhri has established himself in The Hague in 1837. He published illustrated books and magazines, and in 1855 he established the daily "'s-Gravenhaagsch Dagblad". His co-operation with Arnold Leopold Hendrik Ising (1824-1898) began in 1847 when he published the "Groot Nederlandsch prentenboek" which Ising wrote together with W. J. van Zeggelen. An ambitious enterprise, this children book required the reproduction of 700 wood engravings. At the outbreak of the war at the Crimea, Fuhri set to publish, in unbound installments, his "De Oorlog. Geschiedenis der tegenwoordige krijgsgebeurtenissen in Europa". Ising collaborated now with the journalist Tobias van Westrheene Wz. The series was published from 1854 to 1856, in which year publisher Nijgh of Rotterdam bound the installments and offered them now in a book form. It was republished shortly thereafter under the name "De oorlog tusschen Rusland, Turkije en de Westersche Mogendheden, in het midden der 19e eeuw". It contains a fantastic array of dramatic sketches of the battlefields and horrifying images of life under fire, views, the war at sea, topography, military architecture and engineering, individual and group portraits, and the peace treaty, equally finely executed in both techniques, i.e. relief for the wood engravings and planographic for the lithographs.

      Williams & Norgate and Petheram ? London 1854 - Large engraved wall-map (130.5 × 235 cm) dissected into 40 panels and mounted on two sheets (East and West) of linen, small geological map as inset with hand-colour, four sheets of letter-press laid on outer panels providing geographical and military information on the Russian Empire: "A General Account of the Extent of the Russian Empire "; "Organization of the Military and Naval Forces of Russia "; "Miscellaneous useful Information connected with present Seat of War, and the Powers and States engaged therein"; and "Remarks on the proper Pronunciation of Foreign, and Asiatic Words in particular". Kept in the original green slip case, lettered "Map of the Crimea" on the upper panel. Impressive wall-map of Crimea: a fine example of the first edition of this detailed document of military topographical intelligence produced at the outbreak of the war in the region. Based on the earlier survey by Major General Semyon Mukhin (1771-1828), it was published with significant amendments and updates by Thomas Best Jervis (1796 - 1857), a major of the Army Corps of Engineers and member of the Geological and Geographical Societies. The map was subsequently re-issued in various formats, with editions published in Turin, Paris and Brussels. Making maps was Jervis's passion and from 1846 he began to pitch his proposals for military cartography to Lord Aberdeen, insisting that the War Office needed someone to improve the geographical information available to expeditionary forces. The start of the Crimean war and lack of information about the territory that the British forces were to encroach proved Jervis's point. Thus, with the permission from the War Office Jervis went to work with alacrity and created a map of the Crimea. Subsequently, on 2 February 1855, Lord Panmure finally made the foundation of an intelligence department official, which was to be called the Topographical and Statistical Department and of which Jervis was to take command.

        Wild Scenes and Song-Birds.

      New York: George P. Putnam & Co., 1854. - Tall 8vo., (10 ¼ x 7 inches). Fine chromolithographed frontispiece, 19 chromolithographed plates with original tissue guards (occasional marginal spotting). Original publisher's brown cloth decorated in blind, the smooth spine in five compartments gilt-lettered in one (extremities a bit worn with slight loss). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership inscription to flyleaf dated 1875. First edition. One of only two published works to contain chromolithographs after Alfred Jacob Miller, who is one of the three great early Western artists. The 5 chromolithographs after Miller all depict Native American scenes. The remaining 15 plates were drawn by Webber's wife. "Among the first true chromos of importance and the first set of chromo book illustrations . Some of their early work is of very great technical interest and extremely full of detail . Some [of their works] are quite rife with the true American spirit of lithography" (Peters, America on Stone, pp. 343-346). The plate of Indian Girl Swinging shows her bare-breasted, as called for in the first edition: "In the first edition, she appears, as in the Miller watercolor, bare-breasted. In at least some of the later printings, she has been provided with a blouse, probably in the name of nineteenth-century modesty" (Ron Tyler, ed., "Alfred Jacob Miller: Artist on the Oregon Trail," p. 449). "The American people were fascinated by the newly acquired western territories, but their visions and dreams of this vast dominion had been nurtured almost entirely by the printed word. Visual images were in demand. Alfred Jacob Miller was one of the first of the artist-explorers to meet this need. His sketches, gathered when he was on the trail, provided a rich heritage for his own and future generations Miller soon began an odyssey to make him the first artist to penetrate deep into the Rockies Unlike Seymour and Bodmer, Miller had little interest in the reportorial approach. He found his reward in rendering romantic scenes that became souvenirs of the journey for his patron. Neither artist nor client was much concerned with the documentation of fact; their interest lay rather in preserving the spirit of far-western life and its spectacular wild scenery" (Tyler, Alfred Jacob Miller, pp. 32-33).

        7 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Wien bzw. ohne Ort, 1854-1872 bzw. o. J. Zus. 8 S., Kl.-8° bis Gr.-8°. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Rokitansky gilt neben Josef Škoda und Ferdinand von Hebra als einer der Begründer der Zweiten, Neuen Wiener Medizinischen Schule. Durch Rokitansky wurde die experimentelle Pathologie und die Pathologische Anatomie als selbstständiges Studienfach an der Universität Wien etabliert. Man ging weg vom philosophisch hin zum wissenschaftlich orientierten Fach; diese und diverse andere Neuerungen machten die Wiener Schule weltberühmt. --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Tlw.
