A very good and bright copy. Auguste Belloc, born in Paris in 1800, was a portrait miniaturist and watercolor painter. By 1851, Belloc was making portraits with the daguerreotype and calotype processes. He was one of the founding members of the Société Française de Photographie. In the mid 1850's, he was inventing, manufacturing and selling photographic supplies and equipment, which he continued until his death in 1868. In 1869, Marconi reproduced and published Belloc's exquisite nudes, which were deemed pornographic at the time. The above listed volume is important as both a theoretical and historical account of the earliest photographic processes; it includes a beautifully produced portrait frontispiece by the photolithographic process which he discusses in the preface. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 82. Roosens and Salu fail to locate this first edition of this tile but do list the slightly revised 1858 edition, COMPENDIUM DES QUATRE BRANCHES..., No. 4244.

        Budapest - Rudolf von Alt, c. 1855.

      RARE, STRIKING BIRD?S EYE VIEW OF BUDAPEST?Pesth-Ofen. / Budapest.? lithograph in colour made by Rudolf von Alt, approx. 1855. Printed in Vienna by Reiffenstein & R?sch. Size: (view) 41,5 x 57,5 cm, (incl. text) 46,5 x 57,5 cm.Across the Danube we see the Sz?chenyi Chain Bridge (Sz?chenyi l?nch?d), at the time one of the largest bridges in the world, that had connected Pest and Buda after the Hungarian Revolution in 1849.The Kossuth Lajos t?r where great public buildings were erected in the second half of the 19th century, is still called T?m? t?r ("Landfill Square"), a low-lying territory flanking the river, filled with rubbish to raise the level of the ground.It is the time just before the Austro-Hungarian Empire. A time in which traditional aristocracy gradually faced increasingly wealthy men of the cities, who like elsewhere in Europe achieved wealth through trade and industrialization. Newly prosperous members of the bourgeoisie erected large homes, and began to take prominent roles in urban life. Infrastructure, such as railroads, in aid of industrialization, transportation and communications was developed everywhere.The important view painter Rudolf von Alt (1812-1905) was famous, well beyond the frontiers of Austria, for his ruin landscapes, his city views and his interiors and for his bold and contrasting colours. Von Alt knew constantly how to bring something new to his work. His very clear and lightened style, without insipidness or cheesiness, evolves into an almost visionary sense of the atmospheric reality. As it was ?Nach d[er] Natur gez[eichnet]? [drawn after nature], this magnificent view of Budapest must have been made after Von Alt flew over the city in a balloon.Price: Euro 2.500,-.

Extremities lightly rubbed, the leather surface a little worn in places, light spotting to first and last few leaves; a very good copy. First edition. The author of two works which are "notable as early attempts to relate the study of psychology and physiology to political economy. In his Natural Elements, Jennings defined political economy as investigating 'the relations of human nature and exchangeable objects'. Consumption he defined as concerned with the contemplated effect of external objects upon man, and Production with the contemplated effect of man upon external objects. Jennings's treatment of the sensations attending consumption led Jevons to describe him as 'the writer who appears to me to have most clearly appreciated the nature and importance of the law of utility'. Hence it is as an early utility theorist that Jennings has been remembered... He forecast the use of mathematical methods, without himself employing them." (R.D. Collison Black in The New Palgrave).

He is said to have performed 30,000 autopsies himself. His Handbuch was for many years pre-eminent among ist contamporaries.

        Memoirs of the Life, Writings, and Discoveries of Sir Isaac Newton. 2 volumes.

      Edinburgh:: Hamilton, Adams 1855., 1855. 2 volumes. Tall 8vo. xxii, [2], 478; xxii, [2], 478 pp. Frontis. portraits, figs., index. Contemporary blind- and gilt-tooled straight grain calf, gilt-stamped calf spine labels, all edges marbled. ANDREW CARNEGIE'S COPY: Bookplate of Andrew Carnegie. Near Fine. First edition. A beautifully bound copy of the first major biography of Sir Isaac Newton, written by "the father of modern experimental optics," Sir David Brewster. Newton was very much a hero of Brewster's, and after the success of his slim popular biography The Life of Sir Isaac Newton in 1931, Brewster spent another 20 years doing research and compiling this more complete account. While Brewster's admiration is nearly palpable throughout both volumes, faltering only briefly when the subject of Newton's interest in alchemy arises ("There is no problem of more difficult solution than that which relates to the belief in alchemy, and to the practice of its arts, by men of high character and lofty attainments." - 372). Brewster, a devout Christian, could not countenance such irreligious experiments. PROVENANCE: Andrew Carnegie (1835-1919) was one of the most successful industrialists and philanthropists in American history, and for a number of years held the title of richest man in America. After accumulating one of the greatest fortunes in the world, Carnegie spent the last 18 years of his life giving 90% of it away, starting charitable foundations, founding Universities, and building around 3,000 "Carnegie" libraries in the United States, Britain, Canada, and other English-speaking countries. A serious bibliophile, Carnegie wrote a few books himself, including An American Four-in-hand in Britain and Triumphant Democracy.
