        Leaves of Grass

      Brooklyn, New York, 1855. First edition, first issue. Engraved frontispiece portrait of Whitman by Samuel Hollyer after a photograph, printed on thick paper. xii, [13]-95 pp. 1 vols. Small folio (11-1/8 x 7-3/4 in.; 284 x 197 mm). Original green cloth, boards with floral decorations in blind, gilt-lettered ornamental title within a triple-fillet border, spine gilt with title and floral ornaments, marbled endsheets, a.e.g. Title-page very lightly toned, gilt title of upper board a bit dull. Tiniest of repairs to spine (scuffs at center and ends, conserved with no loss). Old description slip tipped to front flyleaf. A fine copy. Half green morocco slipcase, chemise. 'I see and hear the whole' "He was and is the poet and prophet of democracy, and the intoxication of his immense affirmative, the fervor of his 'barbaric yawp,' are so powerful that the echo of his crude yet rhythmic song rings forever in the American air" (Grolier One Hundred). The self-published Leaves was at least partially personally type-set by the author on a small handpress in Brooklyn. The portrait of Whitman is here in superior condition, without the foxing often encountered. This copy bears the printed copyright statement on the verso of the title page and has the first version of line 2 of page 49 ("And the night is for you and me and all") identified by Schmidgall in his article, "1855: a Stop-Press Revision." Of the original 795 copies, only 337 were issued in the first binding with extensive gilt stamping, marbled endsheets, and gilt edges (in the second binding only the title was gilt, and plain yellow endsheets were used). A beautiful copy of a landmark work in American literature.

        Un tour du monde: voyage à la Nouvelle-Zélande et retour en France par l'île Sainte-Hélène

      Avignon: F. Seguin, 1855. Two volumes, duodecimo; a fine set in the publisher's wrappers, each volume now preserved in a folding cloth sleeve within a custom built slipcase for the pair. A French Catholic admires Hobart, Sydney and New Zealand. An excellent set, entirely uncut in the original yellow titling wrappers, of Father Chouvet's travels through Australia and New Zealand. A vivid first-hand account of New Zealand during a period of rapid growth, the work is notable for Chouvet's sensitive evocation of Maori life and language. While most of the work relates to New Zealand, two detailed chapters describe his experiences in Hobart Town and Sydney.Chouvet visited Hobart from late December 1842 through early January 1843, and lavishes praise on the British for their organisation and entrepreneurial zeal. He maintains the colony boasts many of the attractions of the grand cities of Europe and that Hobart is one of the most beautiful harbours in Oceania. He writes at length on the social condition of Catholics, with notes on church building, seminaries, cathedrals, schools and other details. A curious and sensitive observer, Un tour du monde is rich in social detail, including the plight of the Tasmanian Aborigines ('Les aborigènes de la Tasmanie se sont tous retirés dans les forêts de la point... On les déporte par bandes sur les isles du détroit de Bass').Sydney is likewise admired as like a grand European city, with fine buildings, wide streets, observatory, handsome cathedral and numerous learned societies. Indeed, Chouvet's enthusiasm for the British colonial project is seemingly boundless.

        Autograph Letter Signed, in German, 4pp, 8vo, Berlin , March, n.y., but late 1880s

      Very Good. Regarding his research, Ehrlich writes to August Bernthsen (1855-1931), German chemist and laboratory chief of the German chemical company, BASF, beginning in 1899. "First, I would like to express my gratitude for the amiable words and the kind offer to continue to support my efforts. I will attempt a methodical response to your letter and, therefore, begin with Lokao, the 'Chinese Green' known to commerce, about which a paper was just recently published in the Reports. The crystalline aniline has been produced by Cassella [a manufacturer of dyestuffs who supplied material for Ehrlich's work on chemotherapy], and by way of using Schaffer's acid [a crystalline naphtholsufonic acid used as an intermediate dye]...producing an isotope of naphthosulfonic acid. The [?] methyl violet was produced by Metke and published in the Safranin [a biological stain] paper and is distinguished by its beautiful fluorescence of the alcoholic solution and its prompt decay when exposed to light. Brieger doesn't have any Indole or Skatole [crystalline compounds found in intestines and feces left by decomposed proteins], since he has given the remainder to Koch. However, I believe to be able to procure Indolepikrat from another friend of mine, which I will promptly send to you. As far as my own desires are concerned, I would primarily ask for Isothianin [?] and Imido Thiophenyl and would be content and grateful for even the smallest remaining scraps and traces. I really do not need the investigation of Thianolin and would humbly ask you to send me, perhaps, a small sample (3-4 grams) of the Badenese product [i.e., originating from Baden, probably a reference to the location of BASF]. I myself am in active correspondence with the Ludwigshafen house and would be able to procure any desired amount of the hydrochloride, if any has been produced there. At home, things couldn't be better - thank God -...." He signs, "P. Ehrlich." Ehrlich refers to the "Chinese Green," presumably malachite green, used for biological staining for microscopic analysis of cells and tissues. He also refers to colleague Robert Koch (1843-1910), considered the founder of modern bacteriology and known for identifying the causative agents of tuberculosis, cholera, and anthrax. Koch received the Nobel Prize for physiology and medicine in 1905. Ehrlich also refers to Ludwig Brieger (1849-1919) who was the chair of therapeutics at the University of Berlin. He discovered the organic compound Skatole in 1877, expanded knowledge of hydrotherapy, and was an associate of Ehrlich's at the Institute of Infectious Diseases. The Ludwigshafen house mentioned in our letter presumably refers to the BASF Chemical Company which supplied Ehrlich with many of the chemicals he needed for his research. Ehrlich studied microorganisms through the use of dyes made form aniline compounds. After earning a medical degree, he accepted a post at a Berlin clinic where his interest in pathology grew. According to the Dictionary of Scientific Biography, during this time, he, "gained lasting insights into diagnostic and therapeutic problems. His reports on the morphology, physiology and pathology of the blood cells advanced hematology by establishing methods of detecting and differentiating leukemias and anemias. Further, the observations that basic, acidic and neutral dyes reacted specifically with such cellular components...implanted in Ehrlich's mind the fundamental concept underlying his future work: that chemical affinities govern all biological processes." In the mid-1880s, Ehrlich discovered that certain tissues such as nerve endings were especially receptive to the stain of methylene blue. This was the beginning of Ehrlich's pioneering experiments in chemotherapy - the treatment of medical conditions with the application of chemicals.

        THE PRACTICE OF PHOTOGRAPHY: A MANUAL FOR STUDENTS AND AMATEURS.

      Photographic Institution, London 1855 - 8vo, viii, 166 pp., (10) ads., Calotype print from a collodion negative frontispiece. Recased in the original gilt titled cloth with two small opened tears at the spine. The cloth shows chemical staining in a few places and on the foredge of the text. The title page and the mount of the frontispiece show foxing. The original owner, John M. Blake of New Haven has dated this in pencil, July 1 1858, with his pencil annotations in a few places in the text, as well as the rear endpapers. In all, a good copy of a very rare book, which is now housed in a newly made clamshell box of cloth, with paper title labels on the upper board and spine. The frontispiece, by the author, is a calotype print from the Egyptian display at the Crystal Palace, Helmut Gernsheim fails to list this edition in INCUNABULA OF BRITISH PHOTOGRAPHIC LITERATURE 1839-1875 under item #18. Instead, he lists the U.S. Edition of 1854 as the second edition, a London 1856 as the third ed., and an 1857 as the third edition revised. He states that the first and third editions (1853 & 1856) are in the Gernsheim Collection. I have had the good fortune to have owned the 1853 first ed., the 1854 U.S. edition, and now this 1855 second ed., revised. Further, OCLC fails to locate any other 1854 edition other than the U.S. printing, and locates 10 copies of this 1855 second ed., revised. Roosens and Salu 2978, repeats Gernsheim's errors. Each illustrated edition contains a different photograph, and each edition is one of the earliest British book to contain an original photograph.

        Lastrea foenisecii

      London.: Bradbury & Evans.. 1855 - 1856.. Nature-printed color plate, sheet 21 3/4 x 14 1/2 inches. Light foxng to edges, faint scattered foxing; very good, bright condition. This beautiful folio-sized antique botanical print is Plate XIII from "The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland ..., Nature-Printed by Henry Bradbury" published in 1855-1856 "one of the finest pieces of nature-printing ever achieved...The plates were produced 'by passing the plant, under pressure, between a plate of soft lead from which an electrotype could be made' (Blunt). As a result the plates record the smallest details of flowers and the finest venations of leaves. Bradbury, whose father was of the publishing house Bradbury & Evans, studied at the Imperial Printing Office in Vienna." (de Belder catalogue #237). The mania for ferns (or "pteridomania") was one of several plant fixations of the Victorians, fueled by discoveries from abroad and a rapidly expanding middle class interested in plants and gardening; ferns were ideal indoor plants for the Victorian home and their graceful forms were much used in decorative art. .

        Autograph letter signed.

      [No place], 30. VIII. 1855.. 8vo. 1 p. Accompanied by an autograph poetical manuscript signed by Clement, being a gift for Sand on the death of her grand-daughter.. In French, to Abbe S. Clement: "Thank you so much, dear Sir; you are the good shepherd, both sympathetic and consoling. Your poem is sincere, and that is what makes it good, since form only is nothing when the idea is not there. Yes, yes, it is true love is stronger than death, and I am sure that my child and I will be together again. The other night, I dreamed that she was returned to me, and I regard this dream as a gift sent to me. I do not have superstitions about dreams, but when they are sweet, I think we must be grateful. They are a consolation that night brings to our days. Again, thank you. With much love from the bottom of my heart".

        History of the Indian Tribes of North America with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs. Embellished with one hundred and twenty portraits, from the Indian Gallery in the Department of War, at Washington.

      Philadelphia Published by D. Rice & A.N. Hart 1855 - With 120 Fine Hand-Colored Lithographed Plates of American Indians McKENNEY, Thomas L., and James Hall. History of the Indian Tribes of North America, with Biographical Sketches and Anecdotes of the Principal Chiefs. Embellished with one hundred and twenty portraits, from the Indian Gallery in the Department of War, at Washington. Philadelphia: Published by D. Rice & A.N. Hart, 1855. Third octavo edition. Three large octavo volumes. iv, 333, [1, blank]; xvii, [1, blank], [9]-290; iv, [17]-392 pp. With 120 hand-colored lithographed plates ("Lith. Printed & Cold. by J.T Bowen"). With tissue guards. Original brown morocco. Boards ruled and decoratively stamped in blind. Spines lettered in gilt. All edges gilt. Dentelles stamped in blind. Some very minor rubbing to boards. A small amount of toning throughout, mainly to tissue guards. Previous owner's small bookplate on front pastedown of each volume. Overall a very nice set. Originally published in twenty folio parts (three folio volumes) between 1836 and 1844, with 120 hand-colored lithographed plates. The first octavo edition appeared in 1848-1850, with the plates reduced. Several octavo editions were published between 1850 and the 1870s, with varying numbers of plates, some maintaining the original 120, and some abridged to contain as few as forty or fifty plates. All are highly desired today. "As early as 1824, the practice was begun of taking portraits of the principal Indians who came to Washington, and depositing them in the War Department. They were chiefly painted by Mr. King, an artist of high repute, who has been remarkably successful in transferring to his canvas the strong lineaments of the Indian countenance. Col. M’Kinney [sic], who was for many years superintendent of Indian affairs at Washington, and was thus brought in constant association with the principal men of the nations and tribes which sent representatives to the seat of government, conceived the plan of making this rare and curious collection more valuable to the world by publishing a series of engraved portraits exactly copies and colored from these paintings. With each portrait is connected a biographical sketch of the individual whom it is intended to represent, interspersed with anecdotes and narrations. The work contains also a historical account of the various Indian tribes within the borders of the United States" (Sabin 43410a, describing the 1836-1844 edition). "The original oil paintings of which the plates were copies were all destroyed in the 1865 Smithsonian fire" (Howes). Howes M-129 ("the most colorful portraits of Indians ever executed").

        The Manifesto, which the General of Brigade, don Jose Figueroa, commandant-general and political chief of U. California, makes to the Mexican Republic, in regard to his conduct and that of the Snrs. d. Jose Maria de Hijars and d. Jose Maria Padres, as directors of colonization in 1833 and 1834

      Herald Office, San Francisco 1855 - (8 1/4 x 5 1/4 inches). 104,[1]pp. Contemporary purple calf, covers bordered with a gilt roll tool, upper cover lettered in gilt, flat spine with gilt rules Provenance: booklabel on the front pastedown The scarce first English-language edition of Figueroa's defense of his conduct in a California colonization plan, following the extremely rare first edition of 1835, which was the first book-length imprint from Agustin Zamorano's pioneer California press. Hijar and Padres planned a project of colonizing California in the early 1830s, which brought to California many families who played a prominent role in the development of the province. The Mexican government secularized the missions in 1833, and the expectation was that the families would take possession of the mission lands. Hijar and Padres themselves expected to given governmental positions of importance. Orders from Mexico countermanded the promises, and Figueroa, governor of California, refused to hand over the lands, for which he was criticized. This is Figueroa's defense of his conduct. This edition is considered quite rare, and Howes affords it a "c" rating. Cowan, p.210; Graff 1320; Greenwood 562; Howes F122, "c."; Streeter Sale 2784; Zamorano 80, 37 (note).
