        Okazaki, 39th station, yahagi no hashi-te (Yahagi Bridge)

      Edo, Japan: Tsuta-ya Kichizo, 1855. The print being offered is from the 1855 series, Pictures of Famous Places on the Fifty-three Stations, also known as the Vertical Tôkaidô, i.e., in portrait orientation. Artist: Hiroshige, 1797-1858. Title: Okazaki, 39th station, yahagi no hashi-te (Yahagi Bridge). Series: Gojûsan tsugi meisho zue (Pictures of Famous Places on the Fifty-three Stations). Medium: Ukiyo-e. Woodblock Print. Date seal: nengetsu 1855 hare (Ansei 2), month 7. This is believed to be an early pull of an early [?] edition, and not a later reprint or a reproduction. Note, however, John Fiorillo's observation, "How can we possibly identify which impressions belong to which editions of Hiroshige's 1855 series 'Gojûsan tsugi meisho zue', which is said to have been periodically re-published from the original blocks until the 1880s?" Size (HxW):14.5" x 9.6" oban tate-e. Signature: Hiroshige ga. Publisher's mark of Tsuta-ya Kichizo. Condition: Very good impression, almost no soiling, colors very little faded, no creasing observed, two very small thin backing paper pieces attached to the reverse of the right margin, margins mostly intact. Sharp, mostly unbroken key block lines and with well-registered colors. Superb color choices. Grey-green river-bank, bridge supports and distant mountains, light jade green foliage at opposite river-bank, pinkish-beige upper structure of bridge, very light aqua-marine skyline as well as river, with deep blue in river foreground, with purple-tinged sky at the top. A somewhat serene image, with several pedestrians crossing the bridge, three small boats floating on the river, and a man washing a horse in the foreground. Compare to a probably very early copy in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, collection. Strikingly similar except that the MFA print with a red sky at the top and a blue-black river-bank at the bottom.. Signed by Illustrator. Very Good. Illus. by Hiroshige. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

        The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland. By Thomas Moore, Edited by John Lindley. Nature-Printed by Henry Bradbury

      London: Published by Bradbury and Evans, 1855 [-1856]. First edition, folio, [10, 152]pp., 51 leaves of nature-printed plates, all printed in colours, by Bradbury & Evans under the direction of Henry Bradbury, some slight spotting and offsetting from tissue guards, endpapers, title and a few preliminary leaves a little creased, tear to centre of title expertly repaired with archival paper, several other expert repairs to a couple of text leaves, cont. half green morocco, rebacked with the original spine laid-down all edges gilt. First edition of Bradbury's chef d'oeuvre and a fine example of Nature Printing. Henry Bradbury (1831-1860), eldest son of William Bradbury of Bradbury & Evans, published the present work in 17 monthly parts between June 1855 and September 1856. With text by Thomas Moore (curator of the Chelsea botanic garden and co-editor of Gardener's Chronicle) and edited by John Lindley (1799-1865), the work was one of the first of the genre printed in Britain. Bradbury went on to publish an octavo edition of the present work and a four-volume work with nature-printed plates of sea-weeds. It is not known how the controversy surrounding nature printing affected Bradbury, but he committed suicide at the age of 29 by drinking acid. He left a number of unrealised projects, including two further nature-printed works on fungi and trees. The story behind the development of Nature Printing and Bradbury's role in this development has been most extensively detailed by Cave & Wakeman.

        Journal kept during the Russian War:

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans,, 1855. From the Departure of the Army from England in April, 1854, to the Fall of Sebastopol. Octavo. Original brown blind-stamped sand-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine, terracotta endpapers with ads to the pastedowns. A little rubbed, corners bumped, spine sunned, slight lean and mildly shaken, overall a very good copy. First edition. Elusive and highly desirable narrative of the Crimean War by the wife of Paymaster Henry Duberly of the 8th Hussars, part of the legendary light brigade. "Although she missed the battle of the Alma and saw only the aftermath of the battle of Inkerman, she witnessed the cavalry charges at Balaklava and the assault on Malakhov, experienced the winter privations, and rode into Sevastopol soon after it fell. Fanny recorded these events daily. She possessed a ready pen, eyes perceptive to detail, youthful self-confidence, and an incisive style softened by candid pathos. Anonymous extracts from her letters home were leaked to the London press, encouraging her to ask her sister Selina's husband, Francis Marx, to edit her journal for publication. He toned down suspected indiscretions and the book reads less vividly than her letters (now held in the British Library), but a convincing realism survived the excisions and the Journal Kept during the Russian War sold well at Christmas 1855. Readers who anticipated a more heroic romanticism were, however, left uneasy, while Queen Victoria was offended by Fanny's ingenuous wilfulness" (ODNB).

III ('Belladonna Lily') and 4 leaves of duplicate text (pp. 35-42), also in vol. III. (Some spotting and browning as usual). Original publisher's red cloth gilt, covers with a gilt-ruled border around a large rococo design incorporating the title, the flat spine with a decorative overall design incorporating the title, volume number and the publisher's name at the foot, gilt edges (small expert repairs to spines). Covers are lightly rubbed and soiled, but still in good condition and tight. // A beautifully bound four-volume set of the later issue of this complicated work with charming plates, including the very rare fourth volume: "Complete sets... are extremely difficult to locate" (Bennett). This work was first issued periodically between 1846 and 1850. The present re-issue was published in 1855 and is recorded, with a limited amount of detail, by Stafleu & Cowan (they admit that their data is "obviously incomplete"). A definitive collation for this work is problematic, as Stafleu & Cowan state: "The copies listed in the National Union Catalog show a great variation." Bennett writes: "The publisher clearly did not count pages of color plates when listing the numbers on the title pages, but counted every separate item on each page." (p.103). The present copy with its duplicate plate and text bears mute testament to the haphazard production methods applied to this work, whilst the binding is a very fine example of decorated publisher's cloth - the gilt design blocked on the covers is particularly note-worthy.

Friederich Quenstedt (1809-1889), German paleontologist and mineralogist. In crystallography Quenstedt extended the work of C. Weiss, and in geology that of L. von Buch. "A comprehensive mineralogical textbook. It begins with a short history of mineralogy, which is followed in the introductory portion by discussions of goniometers, crystallographic notation and methods of projection, descriptions of the crystal systems, Haüy's and Levy's crystallography, optics, polarized light, optical properties, and pseudomorphs. The descriptive porition of the text reviews the reasons for systematic mineralogy and then persents the descriptive mineralogy. A reference list concludes the work" (Schuh, Biobliography of Mineralogy).

Part 1 deals with 'Les Diurnes', part 2 with 'Lepidoptera Heterocera' and the third part, published posthumously, consists of unpublished material. The pagination of the monograph is confusing, it has however the same number of plates and pages as Horn & Schenkling. Édouard Ménétries (1802-1861) was a French entomologist. In 1826 Ménétires was invited to St Petersburg and became curator of the entomological collections of the Zoological Museum of the Academy of Sciences and the present work describes the butterflies of the collection. Together with Eduard von Eversmann, Fischer de Waldheim, Ménétries became one of the most important Russian entomologists.//Provenance: Bookplate of Otto Bang-Haas and Japanese stamp of Kikumaro Okano on title.//Horn-Schenkling 14933.

        Okazaki, 39th station, yahagi no hashi-te (Yahagi Bridge)

      Edo, Japan: Tsuta-ya Kichizo, 1855. The print being offered is from the 1855 series, Pictures of Famous Places on the Fifty-three Stations, also known as the Vertical Tôkaidô, i.e., in portrait orientation. Artist: Hiroshige, 1797-1858. Title: Okazaki, 39th station, yahagi no hashi-te (Yahagi Bridge). Series: Gojûsan tsugi meisho zue (Pictures of Famous Places on the Fifty-three Stations). Medium: Ukiyo-e. Woodblock Print. Date seal: nengetsu 1855 hare (Ansei 2), month 7. This is believed to be an early pull of an early [?] edition, and not a later reprint or a reproduction. Note, however, John Fiorillo's observation, "How can we possibly identify which impressions belong to which editions of Hiroshige's 1855 series 'Gojûsan tsugi meisho zue', which is said to have been periodically re-published from the original blocks until the 1880s?" Size (HxW):14.5" x 9.6" oban tate-e. Signature: Hiroshige ga. Publisher's mark of Tsuta-ya Kichizo. Condition: Very good impression, almost no soiling, colors very little faded, no creasing observed, two very small thin backing paper pieces attached to the reverse of the right margin, margins mostly intact. Sharp, mostly unbroken key block lines and with well-registered colors. Superb color choices. Grey-green river-bank, bridge supports and distant mountains, light jade green foliage at opposite river-bank, pinkish-beige upper structure of bridge, very light aqua-marine skyline as well as river, with deep blue in river foreground, with purple-tinged sky at the top. A somewhat serene image, with several pedestrians crossing the bridge, three small boats floating on the river, and a man washing a horse in the foreground. Compare to a probably very early copy in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, collection. Strikingly similar except that the MFA print with a red sky at the top and a blue-black river-bank at the bottom.. Signed by Illustrator. Very Good. Illus. by Hiroshige. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

        Mikroskopische und mikrochemische Untersuchung des Milzbrandblutes sowie über Wesen und Kur des Milzbrandes (pp.103-114).

      - Vjschr. gerichtl. öff. Med., 8. - Berlin, August Hirschwald, 1855, 8°, (4), 363, (1) pp., feiner Leineneinband der Zeit; minimal fleckig. First Edition! - Franz Aloys Antoine Pollender (1800-1879) discovered the Bacillus anthracis in 1849, but did not record this fact until 1855. He gave a more exact account of the organism than did P.F.O. Rayer. - "Nicht als Nebenbefund, wie Rayer, sondern als wesentliches Ergebnis seiner mikroskopischen Studien beschrieb (Franz Anton) Aloys Pollender (1800-1879) im Jahr 1855 stäbchenförmige Gebilde im Milzbrandblut. Seine Untersuchungen hatte er schon 1849 ausgeführt, konnte sie aber erst 1855 in Caspers Vierteljahresschrift veröffentlichen. Die Arbeit trägt den Titel "Mikroskopische und mikrochemische Untersuchung des Milzbrandblutes sowie über Wesen und Kur des Milzbrandes" (Pollender, 1855). - Pollender berichtet darin, daß er während einer Milzbrandseuche unter dem Rindvieh die Gelegenheit benutzt hätte, diese Blutuntersuchungen vorzunehmen. Anlaß war für ihn "die noch nicht erwiesene Behauptung, dass das Milzbrandcontagium im Blute seinen Sitz habe". - Er unternahm seine Untersuchungen in der Gewißheit, daß man "nicht durch die Arzneikunde selbst, sondern wenn jemals, nur durch die Hülfswissenschaften derselben, namentlich durch die Mikroskopie und durch die Chemie unter dem Mikroskope dahin gelangen könne(n), das Wesen der Krankheiten zu erkennen ." - Er beschreibt das von ihm im Mikroskop gesehene: - "Bei der mikroskopischen Beobachtung mit einem trefflichen Compositum von Plössl bei starker Vergrösserung fand ich in dem milzbrandkranken Blute ausser den Blutkörperchen auch noch zwei andere mikroskopische Körperchen, nämlich Chyluskörperchen und stabförmige Körperchen. - Die dritte und auffallendste Art mikroskopischer Körperchen, welche im Milzbrandblute sich dem stark bewaffneten Auge darbot, war eine unendliche Menge stabförmiger, äusserst feiner, anscheinend solider, nicht ganz durchsichtiger, ihrer ganzen Länge nach gleich dicker, nicht geschlängelter, nicht wellenförmiger, nicht eingeschnürter, sondern ganz grader, platter, in ihrem Laufe nicht verästelter Körperchen von 400'"- 200'" (Linien) Länge und 3000'" Breite. Diese äusserst zarten Körperchen fanden sich dort am meisten, wo die Verderbnis des Blutes durch teilweise Auflösung der Blutkörperchen am deutlichsten ausgesprochen war. - Sie hatten in ihrer Gestalt und Aussehen die genaueste Aehnlichkeit mit Vibrio bacillus oder Vibrio amhiguus, wenn man von den Verästelungen und von der grösseren Länge und Dicke dieser zarten Protozoen absieht. Sie waren ohne alle Klebrigkeit und ganz bewegungslos, Wasser machte sie bei gedämpften Licht besonders sichtbar, ohne sie sonst im geringsten zu verändern .". - Zur "Chemie unter dem Mikroskop" bemerkt Pollender: - "Ebenso wenig wurden sie (erg., die Stäbchen, Verff.) von Essigsäure, von starkem Chlorwasser, von Chlorwasserstoffsäure, Schwefelsäure, von starker Aetzkalilauge angegriffen. Nur Salpetersäure allein löste sie rasch auf. Jodlösung färbte sie schwach hellgelb und machte sie dadurch sichtbarer.". - Aus diesem chemischen Verhalten der Stäbchen zieht er Schlüsse über deren Natur: - "Nach diesem können die Körperchen keine Bruchstücke zerfallener Primitivfasern ., kein thierischer Faserstoff, überhaupt keine feste Proteinverbindung sein, weil diese ein ganz entgegengesetztes Verhalten zeigen . Ihr Verhalten gegen Aetzkali, Schwefel, Chlorwasserstoffsäure und Salpetersäure ist im Gegentheil ganz eigenthümlich und deutet eher auf eine pflanzliche Natur derselben hin". - Vorsichtig äußert sich Pollender über die ätiologische Bedeutung seiner Befunde: - "Ueber Herkunft und Entstehung dieser merkwürdigen und räthselhaften Körperchen weiß ich nichts zu berichten. Ebenso wenig kann ich die Fragen, ob diese Körperchen im lebenden Milzbrandblute vorhanden, oder, ob sie erst nach dem Tode des Thieres, ein Produkt der Gährung oder der Fäulniss entstanden ? ob sie Entozoen .
