BURTON, Richard F.
London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1856. London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans,, 1856. A very good copy Octavo (213 x 134 mm). Recent purple-brown half morocco, titles in gilt direct to spine, raised bands, marbled boards, pale green endpapers.

Slight rubbing to edges, very occasional faint foxing, else internally clean; a very good copy. First edition, second issue, without Appendix IV on infibulation as usual. Following his "pilgrimage" to Mecca, instead of returning to Britain where he was guaranteed a hero's welcome at the Royal Geographical Society, Burton "lingered in Cairo until November 1853 … Even as he completed the manuscript of his Personal Narrative after returning to Bombay, he was planning the penetration of another forbidden city. This time his objective was Harar, an important religious centre and notorious base for the slave trade in Somalia" (ODNB). The expedition was enthusiastically supported by the Bombay Council, and the party of four, Stroyan, Burton's companion from Sind; Herne, a skilled photographer and surveyor; and John Hanning Speke, a young officer who was taken on at the last minute following the death of Assistant-Surgeon J. E. Stocks, assembled at Aden in October 1854. Burton revised his plans in response to the misgivings of the political resident James Outram, reserving the inland trip to Harar for himself. Speke was forced to … [Click Below for Full Description]

Eunice Newton Foote
New York: 1856. Anniroc Rare Books ________ Circumstances Affecting the Heat of Sun's Rays in The American Journal of Science and Arts, Second Series, Vol. XXII -- November, 1856 - pp. 382-83 Eunice Newton Foote New York, 1856 Octavo(243 x 154 mm). Original printed wrappers, untrimmed. Three engraved plates, folding engraved map, woodcut text figures. Some sporadic trivial spotting, chipped at head of spine, else scintillatingly Fine. First printing of the discovery of greenhouse gases - particularly that carbon dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere alters its temperature. Is there a more significant scientific issue of our time? It's just the fate of our progeny and the planet... 'In a series of experiments conducted in 1856, Eunice Newton Foote -- a scientist and women's rights campaigner from Seneca Falls, New York -- became the first person to discover that altering the proportion of carbon dioxide(then called "carbonic acid gas") in the atmosphere would change its temperature. This relationship between carbon dioxide and the earth's climate has since become one of the key principles of modern meteorology, the greenhouse effect, and climate science. However, no one acknowledged Foote was the first to make this discovery for more than a century, in large part because she was a woman. Entirely because she was a woman, Foote was barred from reading the paper describing her findings at the 1856 meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science held in Albany, New York. Instead, Professor Joseph Henry of the Smithsonian had the honor of introducing her, announci … [Click Below for Full Description]

Thomas Babington Macaulay
Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, London, 1856. Complete 4-Volume Set, uniformly bound, of this classic work. Each volume bears the bookplate of Col. Franklin Coxe on the front pastedown (see bio below). I've done my best to describe the books, but if you have additional questions, please don't hesitate to send me an e-mail. Franklin Coxe, industrialist, banker, and railroad executive, was born in Rutherfordton, the son of Francis Sidney and Jane McBee Alexander Coxe. An ancestor, Daniel Coxe, had settled in New Jersey in the early years of the eighteenth century and held title to extensive grants of land in the Carolinas and elsewhere. Tench Coxe, Daniel's grandson and the grandfather of Franklin, was assistant secretary of the treasury under Alexander Hamilton and later commissioner of revenue by appointment of President Washington. Lands in the coal fields of Pennsylvania were a source of substantial wealth to the Coxes, and it was in the interest of their landholdings in the South that Francis Coxe moved to Rutherford County. Frank Coxe, as he usually signed himself, was educated in the local schools of Rutherfordton and briefly at Furman University in Greenville, S.C., the locality from which his mother's family had come. At sixteen he entered the sophomore class of the University of Pennsylvania, receiving his degree in 1857. After graduation he began work as a civil engineer in the anthracite coal fields of Pennsylvania, where his family's firm was rapidly becoming one of the nation's largest coal operators. With the outbreak of war, Coxe returned to Greenville an … [Click Below for Full Description]

Holman & Gray printers and stereotypers, N.Y.First edition: Frederick Law Olmsted (1822-1903) was a travel writer before he became a renowned landscape architect. Olmsted was commissioned by the New York Times to provide unbiased reports on slavery and its economic and social impact. A Journey in the Seaboard Slave States was based on his initial reports during twelve months of travel beginning in 1852. The three resulting books were acclaimed as the most accurate picture of the antebellum South. Olmsted concluded that slavery led to all aspects of suffering in southern society. His writings greatly influenced the free soil doctrines which sought to prevent slavery in the West. As chief executive officer of the U.S. Sanitary Commission which oversaw the American Medical Bureau, Olmsted organized medical services to the Union Army during the Civil War.Sabin 57242.

Francis Hawks
Nicholson, 1856. Volume one has weak binding and the spine binding is split - see photos. Volumes two and three are intact. The binding and the covers are the original embossed covers - see photos. Narrative of an Expedition to the China Seas and Japan Performed in the Years 1852, 1853, and 1854 Under the Command of Commodore M. C. Perry, United States Navy, published by Order of the Government of the United States. Compiled by Francis L. Hawks. Three volumes. Printed in 1856 by A.O.P. Nicholson, Printer. First edition. Without suppressed naked bathing scene. Detailed account of Perry's expedition to open Japan to the West, one of the most important diplomatic missions ever undertaken by an American naval officer, the goal of which was to force Japan to end its isolationist policies and enter diplomatic and trade relations with the U.S. He did this with a show of naval force and, at the time, Japan had no navy with which to counter. More Western nations followed suit and massive changes ensued, eventually sealing the fate of Japan's feudal system. On his return Perry worked jointly with Hawks on the report. The daguerreotypist E. Brown, Jr. went on the expedition and took what were probably some of the earliest photographic images of Japan, many of them reproduced lithographically here.

Published by John Cooper & Co., 1856, for private distribution. This is an uncommon work by this Jewish author who would go on to become a Confederate Officer during the Civil War. Levy (1827 - 1888) . Was also editor in chief of the Savannah Daily Advertiser, and "in April 1868 Levy criticized in print the political views of a certain Dr. James Waring. Waring, apparently thin-skinned, demanded a duel. Levy obliged, but luckily friends were able to defuse the situation" (Encyclopedia of Southern Jewish Communities, 2013) . Logan was a popular actress of the mid-19th Century, daughter to Cornelius Logan, a comic actor & playwriter who served as her manager until his death in 1853. While Logan was born in Philadelphia, she made her name in the antebellum South, with many lucrative engagements in cities such as Savannah, where she, no doubt, inspired Mr. Levy to write this work in her honor. Book has light wear to cover. Endpaper inside cover has some wrinkling (see photo). Letterpressed. A few small light stains, a few tiny holes.

London: John Murray, 1856. First edition. Frontispiece, folding map and folding plan. Pp. xvi, 456. 8vo. half calf, gilt, rather rubbed.||Born in Orkney, Baikie studied medicine at Edinburgh University. He joined the Royal Navy in 1848 and soon attracted the notice of Sir Roderick Murchison who secured Baikie the post of surgeon and naturalist to the Niger expedition sent by Macgregor Laird in 1854. This is a fascinating association copy with Sir Roderick Murchison's original autograph transcription of Baikie's Times obituary.A well-written, fascinating narrative. One of Baikie's most important observations was on the use of quinine to prevent malaria as noone on the expedition contracted the disease. During the expedition the senior officer, Consul Beecroft, died and Baikie took command. Ascending the Benue about 250 miles beyond the point reached by former explorers, his small steamer Pleiad returned and reached the mouth of the Niger, after a voyage of 118 days, without the loss of a single man. Returning to the UK, Baikie gave an excellent account of his work in this book.In March 1857, Baikie went on another expedition in the Pleiad. After two years exploring the Niger, the navigating vessel was wrecked passing through some of the rapids of the river, and Baikie was unable to keep his party together. Baikie continued to try to fulfil the expedition's initial premise. He landed, with one or two native followers, at the confluence of the Niger and Benue, and chose Lokoja as the base of his future operations, it being the site of the model farm established by the expedit … [Click Below for Full Description]

Humboldt, Alexander von, naturalist, geographer, ethnographer and scientific traveller (1769-1859).
[Berlin?], [circa 1856]. Small 4to. 1 page. A manuscript in Humboldt's near-illegible hand, on the work of Louis Pasteur's work on tartrates. Pasteur's earliest work was as a chemist, beginning at the École Normale Supérieure, and continuing at Strasbourg and Lille, in which he examined the chemical, optical and crystallographic properties of a group of compounds known as tartrates. Pasteur resolved a problem concerning the nature of tartaric acid in 1848. Some historians consider Pasteur's work in this area to be his most significant and most original contributions to science. - A fascinating document on the early experiments of Pasteur by the ageing Humboldt, considered at the time a giant in the field of science. - Usual folds and slight foxing, especially around the top edges; otherwise in good condition.

HAUNTINGS: FANTASTIC STORIES By 'Vernon Lee' aka Violet Paget (1856-1935) Publishing Details: Published by Heinemann, London, 1890. Original decorative red cloth with gilt spine titles, black design to front board, smaller one to rear. Black endpapers. 237pp + 6pp rear adverts, top edge roughly trimmed, side and lower edge neatly trimmed. Condition: A very good copy. The spine has light forward lean, some minor frays to spine ends, corners a little bumped. The spine is a little toned. A tiny nick to the front endpaper. The binding is very solid, there is no damage to the hinges or endpapers, text block generally very clean. One neat former owner description dated April 25th 1890 suggesting the book was published early in 1890. Context: A superior collection of ghost stories (four novellas) in the extremely rare first British edition. According to the author herself, the majority of the first print run was destroyed in a warehouse fire, saving for author and review copies. As a result, the US and later 1906 second edition are more common. I have only seen two other copies of this book in the past twenty years, and both have been tatty 'make do' copies. This is the first decent collector's copy I am aware of. "One of the crown jewels of ghostly fiction." David G. Rowlands, from his introduction to the 2002 Ashtree Press reprint. "In 'Armour Dure' a strange bond between evil and sexuality has survived since the Renaissance.
