        On the Variation of Species, with Especial Reference to the Insecta; Followed by an Inquiry into the Nature of the Genera.

      London: John Van Voorst, 1856.. FIRST EDITION. Octavo, pp.viii, 206 [2]. In publisher's light green cloth with gilt titles to spine and blind decoration to boards. Top edge untrimmed; yellow endpapers. Some external wear and marks; very good indeed. Close friends with both Charles Darwin and Charles Lyell, Wollaston nevertheless found it impossible to fully endorse their theories due to his faith. This treatise concerns Wollaston's work on insects on the Madeira Islands, citing evidence of direct effects on individual insects caused by external stimuli, such as climate, to suggest that they change according to these stimuli, and not as a result of Natural Selection.

        The Quadrupeds of North America

      - New York: V.G. Audubon, 1856. In three volumes. Third edition. 8vo. (xv), 383 pp.; (iv), 334 pp.; v, 348 pp. Illustrated with 155 hand-colored plates printed by J.T. Bowen; clipped signature of John James Audubon tipped-in to first free leaf, and with portrait of Audubon tipped-in to verso of front free endpaper. Publisher's deluxe brown morocco binding, elaborately stamped in blind; all edges gilt; marbled endpapers (volumes I and III only). Binding slightly rubbed to edges and joints, a very good set. Third edition, the last to be produced by the Audubon family. The title-page of Volume III bears the date of 1860, the year in which Roe Lockwood took over publication of Audubon's works from his sons, but it still gives the publisher as "V.G. Audubon". That suggests that this volume was produced before the deal with Lockwood. Originally issued in 31 parts to subscribers, this edition was also sold in book form. Audubon's sons, Victor Gifford and John Woodhouse Audubon, decided to issue this octavo edition of the enormous folio Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America (1845-48), with the same text by John Bachman, during the last years of their father's life, and first published it in 1849. The work had been a real family affair, with the ailing John James and John Woodhouse dividing the artwork between them and Victor providing most of the backgrounds, while Bachman, also ill, was greatly aided in writing his text by his sister-in-law Maria. The result of this collaborative effort was a work that is as much a scientific as an aesthetic triumph, the founding text of the serious study of North American quadrupeds. This octavo edition, so much more approachable in size and price than the imperial folio work, brought a level of commercial and artistic success for the two brothers and saw them keeping their father's legacy alive.

        The Ship-Builder's Manual, and Nautical Referee.

      NY: by the Author, 1856. x. Two vol. in one. iv, 200; 188, 2,2, pp. Sepia frontispiece, b/w plates. This is a rare work, not to be confused with the earlier (1850) and more common “Treatise on Marine Architecture.” In this book Griffiths concentrates less on the theoretical and more on the technical “nuts and bolts” aspects of construction. He includes material on timbers and timbering, scantlings, fastenings, spars, ground tackle, sails and rigging, and much more of the kinds of information that would be useful to an actual shipwright. This book also contains 17 sets of lines and diagrams. Brewington says, “Griffiths works of great value. Contain many plates of lines, details, masting rules, tables of off-sets, etc.” Brewington Bib. NYPL list p. 315. This is the second, expanded, edition (first was 1853), with new material and four index pages. Bound in original quarter leather over boards with gold spine lettering. Title page lightly foxed, with private owner's embossed stamp in lower right. Scattered light foxing, with occasional text pages more heavily foxed. A very good copy of a very scarce book. WorldCat shows only six American libraries holding copies.

        Description des animaux sans vertèbres découverts dans la Bassin de Paris pour servir de supplément a la description des coquilles fossiles des environs de Paris comprenant une revue générale de toutes les espèces actuellement connues. (Complete).

      Paris, J. B. Baillière et fils, 1856-1865. Large 4to. (24.5 x 30.5 cm). Text and atlas, in seven volumes. Text (in three parts): half-titles and titles, 2,550 pp. [912; 968; 668, (ii)]. Atlas (in four parts; viz. of the two volumes the plates and the explanations separately): two title pages, 195 [88; 107] pp. of explanatory text, and 196 large, finely engraved plates [I-LXXXVII, XIbis, XVIbis; I-CVII]. Original, nearly uniform printed wrappers to all parts except blind wrappers to the two plate volumes.= One of the largest and finest works of the French malacologist and palaeontologist Gérard Paul Deshayes (1796-1875). As usual with works dealing with fossils, there was just one, uncoloured, edition. It was sold, in 1866, for 250 French francs: by far the most expensive of all uncoloured works on Mollusca. Only the hand-coloured edition of Férrussac and Deshayes' "Histoire naturelle général et particulière des mollusques" was more expensive, at 490 francs, discounted from a previous and astonishing 1250 francs. The fine plates with large, detailed figures, are by Delahaye, Formant, Lackenbauer, and Levasseur. Most specimens have a detailed enlarged illustration, a life-size outline figure, and, often, a further enlarged sculpture detail; in the bivalves usually the taxonomically important hinges. Like most of his works, this one is important because of the many new species and detailed illustrations. The "Discription" is one of the few works completed by the author, and includes simple plate numbering. Deshayes started many projects, but several remained unfinished and the plate numbering, for instance in his work on the molluscs of Algeria, was usually confusing. In this work, however, there are only two "bis" plates. The last page of volume 3 contains a list of publication dates of the 50 livraisons, recording the first two as from 2 November 1856, and the last two (49 and 50) from 15 December 1865. Only the last title page and wrapper bear the year 1866. This work is truly rare, and possibly even Deshayes' rarest work. There are no auction records of complete copies after 1965, when Wheldon and Wesley purchased one at Sotheby's in London. Uncut, with the widest possible margins. The wrappers and titles to the two atlases have been bound with the explanatory leaves. The second and third text volume have the word "tome" printed, and "1er", and "2eme" added in an old hand, the first text volume has a wrapper with the printed text "tome troisième", the last word corrected in the same hand to "1er". A few small, isolated spots, but generally very clean, especially the plates. Nissen ZBI, 1089.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      London, British Museum, 10. XII. 1856. - An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - Owen „wird nach Charles Darwin als zweitbedeutendster Naturforscher des Viktorianischen Zeitalters angesehen [.]. Er schrieb bedeutende Arbeiten zur vergleichenden Osteologie und Odontologie der Wirbeltiere. Während seiner Untersuchungen an in Großbritannien gefunden Reptilenfossilien prägte er 1841 den Begriff ‚Dinosauria‘. Im darauf folgenden Jahr revidierte er Georges Cuviers Gruppen der Wiederkäuer (Ruminantia) und der Dickhäuter (Pachydermata) und ersetzte diese durch die noch heute gebräuchlichen Untergruppen der Paarhufer (Artiodactyla) und Unpaarhufer (Perissodactyla). 1843 führte Owen den Begriff der Homologie ein und trennte ihn vom ähnlichen Begriff der Analogie. Unter Anwendung seines Homologie-Prinzips konstruierte Owen einen abstrakten ‚Archetypus‘, anhand dessen er die Entwicklung der Wirbeltiere teleologisch erklärte. Während seines Wirkens als Superintendent der naturgeschichtlichen Sammlung des Britischen Museums setzte er sich für die Errichtung eines unabhängigen Naturgeschichtsmuseums, dem heutigen Natural History Museum, ein, dessen erster Direktor er bis 1883 war" (Wikipedia). --- 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. - Ränder m. kl. Knickspuren. - Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        First Footsteps in East Africa or an Exploration of Harar

      London: Longman, Brown, Green and Longmans, 1856. 8vo, [xlii], 648, 2 maps and 4 colored plates, in the original brick red publisher's cloth, orginal printed endpapers, ads dated March 1856. Some rubbing to extremities, ownership inscription and book plate on endpaper, otherwise a very good, orginal state copy of this book. Without Appendix IV as is usually the case. In 1854 Burton was given leave from the Bombay government to explore Somaliland. His ambition was to penetrate through the mountains to the upper waters of the Nile. On this occasion he had three comrades, John Hanning Speke and Herne of the Indian army, and Stroyan of the Indian Navy. Before starting with them, Burton set out alone on a pioneer trip to Harar, the inland capital of the country, which no European had ever visited. On this occasion he assumed the disguise of an Arab merchant, but once within the city he disclosed himself to the Amir. The success of this adventure perhaps encouraged him to neglect necessary precautions when the regular expedition was organised. While still near the port of Berbera the camp was attacked one night by the Somalis. Stroyan was killed; Speke was wounded in no less than eleven places; Burton's face was transfixed by a spear from cheek to cheek; Herne alone escaped unhurt. The party could do nothing but return to Aden, whence Burton proceeded to England on sick certificate. While under treatment for his wound he wrote First Footsteps in East Africa. This book was the source of Speke's discontent with Burton as Speke felt he should have received more credit, rather than being relegated to the Appendix of the book. Abbey 276; Casada 35; Pankhurst 35; Penzer 60. First English Edition. Very Good.

      12°, gebonden in geheel leer, (12)+216 pag., met gegraveerd frontispice. Iets slijtage aan de hoeken van de band, maar goed exemplaar. Exlibri van Georges Montadou en Robert Joostens. C1473."Graesse I pag. 233; Rahir 3029; Brunet VI 17877; Gay-Lemonnyer pag. 286; Niet in STCN; NCC: 1 ex. Verzameling van 21 satirische verhalen uit de wereld van geld en vrouwen. 'Plume la poule sans le faire crier' staat voor het plukken van een kip zonder dat het dier geluid maakt, maar ook overdrachtelijk: iemands geld stelen zonder dat deze het merkt. Het eerste verhaal gaat over een non die in Reims een kip plukt. Het frontispice toont een scene tijdens een carnaval in Parijs waar een man gekleed als rechter met een geplukt kip in de hand door een groep koks uit een bordeel wordt gedragen. Het boekje werd in 1856 herdrukt als het eerste deel van de 'Bibliotheque de l'amateur Rémois'. Het hier voorhanden exemplaar toont enkele verschillen met het door Rahir beschreven exemplaar. In 1711 verscheen onder het pseudoniem 'Robert le Turc' als drukker een ander satirisch werkje 'La Musique du Diable' over de avonturen in de hel van de , 523, e sopraan Mlle Desmatins."

      Berlin, 1854-1856. - An den österr. Chemiker u.

        Recuerdos De Lima Album Tipos, Trajes y Costumbres Dibujados y Publicados Por A.A. BonnaffŽ En Lima 1856 [cover title] .

      [Paris and Lima], 1856. - Folio, orig, cloth, renewed matching spine. 12 lithographed plates, 11 of them hand-colored. A rare costume book depicting the people of Peru. The plates, all of them printed in Paris and bearing the imprints of various lithographers, are captioned as follows: El Cholo Costen›; La Chola Quesera; El Heladero; La Chola Frutera; El Biscochero; La Chola Rabona; La Tapada (de noche); El Indio de la Sierra; La Tapada; La Chola de la Sierra; La Tapada (Saya y Manto); and La Tapada (Saya y Manto), the last two with identical titles but different images. La Tapada or La Tapada Lime–a were elegant and mysterious women who wore a black veil and wrap (Saya y Manto) out of which they would peer with one eye. They were famous for beguiling visitors from around the world and it is not surprising that four of the twelve plates are devoted to this charming fashion. The artist and publisher A.A. BonnaffŽ (1820-1870) was a native of France who appears to have lived for a time in Lima. The city was, of course, a port-of-call for vessels sailing around the Horn. Bonnaffe's vivid color plate books doubtless made splendid souvenirs for visitors. This is the first of two volumes of lithographs of Lima subjects published by REFERENCES: Palau, Manual del librero Hispano-Americano, 32375. CONDITION: Good, old dampstains on upper cover, tissue guards foxed, plates generally clean with the occasional touch of foxing. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lake Ngami;

      London: Hurst and Blackett,, 1856. Or, Explorations and Discoveries, during Four Years' Wanderings in the Wilds of South Western Africa. Large octavo. Original brown cloth, skilfully recased and relined, titles to spine gilt, decorative frame blocked in blind to spine and covers, hippopotamus vignette gilt to front cover, rhinoceros vignette gilt to rear, edges untrimmed. Single-tint lithographic frontispiece with tissue guard, 15 similar plates, folding map, wood-engravings to the text Bookplate of collector Robert J. Hayhurst to the front pastedown. Cloth slightly lifting along a few short sections of front joint, a few repaired splits to cloth at spine-ends, light wear to bumped tips, frontispiece foxed, variable, lighter spotting to other plates and facing text-leaves, short closed tear to map stub touching frame only. A very good copy. First edition of Andersson's first book, a "famous early volume of African sport and travel … a cornerstone book of African hunting in the mid-19th century" (Czech). "Few, if any, books give so full and complete an account of Namaqualand, Damaraland, and the Ovampo country, and the description of the fauna of these countries is absolutely unequalled. Many exciting hunting adventures are depicted by pen and pencil, and the author obtained a great insight into the curious customs of the natives and their rulers" (Mendelssohn). The lively plates depict the pursuit hippopotamus, eland, koodoo, oryx, ostriches, lion, and other big game; the American edition, published the same year, was in a smaller format and reproduced these images as illustrations within the letterpress. Andersson (1827-67), the illegitimate son of a Welshman living in Sweden, travelled to England in 1849, intending to continue to Iceland but instead joined Francis Galton's expedition to south-west Africa, "an area which was, at that time, largely unknown to Europeans" (ODNB). The expedition set out in 1850, landed at Walvis Bay, modern-day Namibia, and travelled inland to the Windhoek, the Etosha salt pan and eventually reached Tounobis on the border with Botswana. Galton left in 1851, never to return to Africa, but "Andersson stayed on, determined to follow a career as a trader, traveller and naturalist", basing himself at Otjimbingwe, central Namibia, and becoming "deeply involved in the tribal politics of the region" (Howgego). In 1853 he set out to cross the desert to Lake Ngami (now no more than a seasonal marsh), taking a circuitous route via Windhoek and the Kalahari desert. After reaching the lake he continued 60 miles further north in search of the Okavango but was obliged to turn back, returning the following year via more settled districts. He published his account during a two-year return visit to England, Galton refusing to provide a loan to cover the costs, possibly because he had already published his own two books on the expedition. By 1857 Andersson was manager of the Walvis Bay Mining Company. His fortunes fluctuated wildly, and in 1864 he sold all his assets to organise an army of 3,000 Herero warriors against the Oorlam Afrikaners, receiving a leg wound which blighted his final years, and he died at Omutwe-Onjambu, Angola, three years later.

      J. Gyldendalske, Kjobehavn 1856 - First edition, 5 volumes, 8vo; presentation copy from the editor to the runic archaeologist George Stephens; leaf from Pedersens' Alle Epistler oc Evangelia. (1518) laid in, original tan and blue paper-covered boards, paper labels on spines; mss. labels by Stephens on spines, joints, cracked, pages occasionally dog-eared, else good or better. Christiern Pedersen (c. 1480-1554) was the first man of letters in Denmark and considered the father of Danish literature. First a cathedral canon, later a Reformation convert, he published Saxo Grammaticus' Historica Danica in Paris. Pedersen is best known for his translation of the Bible into Danish, known as "Christian III's Bible," a landmark in Danish literature and still in use today. Brandt's and Fenger's collection of Pedersen's works is comprised of his Danish writings (1518-1533), and is of interest to historians, literary scholars and philologists. Volumes I and II include sermons for the entire church season along with texts for the day, breviaries and masses. Volume III is the New Testament, based on Luther's version. Volume IV includes the Psalms and other short writings. Volume V has Pederson's Danish versions of Charlemagne, the legend of Ogier the Dane, and a chronicle of Danish history. Volumes IV and V are edited by Brandt only. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Lake Ngami; Or, Explorations and Discoveries, during Four Years' Wanderings in the Wilds of South Western Africa.

      London: Hurst and Blackett, 1856 - Large octavo. Original brown cloth, skilfully recased and relined, titles to spine gilt, decorative frame blocked in blind to spine and covers, hippopotamus vignette gilt to front cover, rhinoceros vignette gilt to rear, edges untrimmed. Bookplate of collector Robert J. Hayhurst to the front pastedown. Cloth slightly lifting along a few short sections of front joint, a few repaired splits to cloth at spine-ends, light wear to bumped tips, frontispiece foxed, variable, lighter spotting to other plates and facing text-leaves, short closed tear to map stub touching frame only. A very good copy. Single-tint lithographic frontispiece with tissue guard, 15 similar plates, folding map, wood-engravings to the text First edition of Andersson's first book, a "famous early volume of African sport and travel a cornerstone book of African hunting in the mid-19th century" (Czech). "Few, if any, books give so full and complete an account of Namaqualand, Damaraland, and the Ovampo country, and the description of the fauna of these countries is absolutely unequalled. Many exciting hunting adventures are depicted by pen and pencil, and the author obtained a great insight into the curious customs of the natives and their rulers" (Mendelssohn). The lively plates depict the pursuit hippopotamus, eland, koodoo, oryx, ostriches, lion, and other big game; the American edition, published the same year, was in a smaller format and reproduced these images as illustrations within the letterpress. Andersson (1827-67), the illegitimate son of a Welshman living in Sweden, travelled to England in 1849, intending to continue to Iceland but instead joined Francis Galton's expedition to south-west Africa, "an area which was, at that time, largely unknown to Europeans" (ODNB). The expedition set out in 1850, landed at Walvis Bay, modern-day Namibia, and travelled inland to the Windhoek, the Etosha salt pan and eventually reached Tounobis on the border with Botswana. Galton left in 1851, never to return to Africa, but "Andersson stayed on, determined to follow a career as a trader, traveller and naturalist", basing himself at Otjimbingwe, central Namibia, and becoming "deeply involved in the tribal politics of the region" (Howgego). In 1853 he set out to cross the desert to Lake Ngami (now no more than a seasonal marsh), taking a circuitous route via Windhoek and the Kalahari desert. After reaching the lake he continued 60 miles further north in search of the Okavango but was obliged to turn back, returning the following year via more settled districts. He published his account during a two-year return visit to England, Galton refusing to provide a loan to cover the costs, possibly because he had already published his own two books on the expedition. By 1857 Andersson was manager of the Walvis Bay Mining Company. His fortunes fluctuated wildly, and in 1864 he sold all his assets to organise an army of 3,000 Herero warriors against the Oorlam Afrikaners, receiving a leg wound which blighted his final years, and he died at Omutwe-Onjambu, Angola, three years later.

        Tableaux. Moutures. Notes.

      1856-1873. ____ Manuscrit rédigé par un spécialiste de la meunerie, un expert même puisque l'on y trouve le compte-rendu de son expertise pour un tribunal (p. 224-227). Son auteur, Paul Leguay a été employé dans différents moulins, comme conseiller ou directeur, dans l'Ouest de la France (Fougères, Chateaugontier, Port de Guipry, près de Rennes, moulin d'Aubusson, près de Flers, moulin des Fours à Chaux d'Angers, ..) puis de la région lyonnaise. Ce manuscrit, rédigé de 1856 à 1873 donne des descriptions techniques et des observations sur les moulins, leur mécanisme, les meules, les bluteries, les nettoyages, des comptes-rendus des moutures et de ses interventions, des tableaux sur la production de farine, les aspects économiques de la meunerie... Paul Leguay raconte (p. 407) son départ en 1863 du moulin de Fougères, en très mauvais termes avec son employeur. Il a plus tard succédé à son père comme propriétaire du moulin de Saint-Eloi, à Bézu Saint-Eloi, près Gisors (Eure). Des feuillets ont été insérés ici et là dans le volume et ne sont pas pris en compte dans la pagination. Le manuscrit est illustré par de nombreux dessins techniques à la plume. Une table des matières se trouve en fin de volume. Dos frotté, coiffes manquantes. Bon état intérieur. On joint un volume manuscrit du même : - Quelques notes prises dans les Calculs faits de Lenoir (ouvrage épuisé) et dans la Publication industrielle de Armengaud ainé. 1860.
