      München, Literarisch-artistische Anstalt, 1856 - XXVIII S., 1 Bl., 297 S. 1 lithograph. Porträt, 1 chromolithograph Tafel und 3 lithograph. Tafeln (diese innerhalb der Kollation). Erste Ausgabe. - "Johann Nepomuk Fuchs (1774 - 1856) . . hat auf dem Gebiet der Mineralchemie eine führende Rolle gespielt. Er sprach 1815 als erster aus, daß sowohl in Mineralien als auch in künstlich hergestellten chemischen Verbindungen gewisse Bestandteile einander vertreten können, ohne daß ihre Kristallform sich merklich verändert. Seit 1821 studierte er die Entstehung der Porzellanerde und versuchte auch mit Erfolg Silikate zu synthetisieren. Hierbei beobachtete er unter anderem den Basenaustausch der Zeolithe und kam zu einer seiner bekanntesten Entdeckungen, der Herstellung von `Wasserglas`, das er nach dem Münchner Theaterbrand (1823) als Feuerschutzmittel und später auch als Malgrundlage (Verfahren der „Stereochromie" 1855) technisch anwandte. Schließlich konnte er ein wissenschaftliches Verfahren zur Erzeugung von `hydraulischem Mörtel` (Zement) ausarbeiten. Beobachtungen an der Kieselsäure und ihren Verbindungen führten ihn zur Aufstellung des Begriffes `Amorphismus`, wodurch er die Forschung auf das Gebiet der späteren Kolloidchemie lenkte. Fuchs bereicherte die Chemie durch neue analytische und präparative Arbeitsmethoden, die zum Teil noch heute in Gebrauch sind" (NDB V, 680). - Vorderer Buchinnendeckel mit hs. Notiz.

      19 cm x 28 cm. LVI, 260 pages. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in protective slip-case. Excellent condition limited edition with only very minor signs of external wear. George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856 2 November 1950), known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic and polemicist whose influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond. He wrote more than sixty plays, including major works such as Man and Superman (1902), Pygmalion (1912) and Saint Joan (1923). With a range incorporating both contemporary satire and historical allegory, Shaw became the leading dramatist of his generation, and in 1925 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Back to Methuselah (A Metabiological Pentateuch) by George Bernard Shaw consists of a preface (An Infidel Half Century) and a series of five plays: In the Beginning: B.C. 4004 (In the Garden of Eden), The Gospel of the Brothers Barnabas: Present Day, The Thing Happens: A.D. 2170, Tragedy of an Elderly Gentleman: A.D. 3000, and As Far as Thought Can Reach: A.D. 31,920. All were written during 191820, published simultaneously by Constable (London) and Brentano's (New York) in 1921, and first performed in the United States in 1922 by the New York Theatre Guild at the old Garrick Theatre, New York.

        Rue Napoleon, Algiers.

      - Biskra., ca. 1856, Original photograph, albumen print, 25,4 x 19,9 cm. Damaged spot at right upper corner, upper corners cut off. - Photograph from his journey to Algérie 1856-1858 Félix Jacques Antoine Moulin (1802 -1875). - A "specialist in académies" was how Félix Jacques Moulin listed himself in city business directories when he opened a photographic studio in Paris in 1851. Académies, or artists' studies, was the polite term for nude studies, which frequently bordered on the pornographic; that same year Moulin was arrested for the possession and sale of "obscene objects." He was sentenced to a month in prison and fined but was not deterred. He continued to sell académies to artists and other interested consumers. Moulin also purchased the rights from Roger Fenton's publisher to sell Fenton's Crimean War photographs. In 1856 Moulin traveled to Algeria, where he made city views and studies of the country's inhabitants. KEYWORDS:algeria/algiers/photo

        Monuments Antiques à Orange: Arc de Triomphe et Théatre

      1856. Publiés sous les Auspices de S. E. M. le Ministre d'Etat. VI, 89 pp. text, with very detailed descriptions and documentation, on the remains of the Roman theater and triumphal arch in the French city, extensive scholarly notes including bibliographic material, measurements of finds, extracts from literature on related works, engraved frontispiece, and 51 superb engraved plates (including one chromolithograph), most with guard sheets, showing general plans and views, details, elevations, sculptural decoration, contextual diagrams, conjectural reconstructions, etc. Some scattered foxing throughout, especially to text and to guard sheets, several pages with minor acid burn/loss to margin, spine shaken with some splitting along lower third, several pages with minor repairs along spine. Large folio. Leather-backed boards, raised spine. Some rubbing along extremities, minor splitting and leather loss along top and bottom edges of spine. Paris (Firmin Didot Frères) 1856. The Roman Theatre in Orange was built early in the 1st century AD and is one of the best-preserved Roman theatres to survive to this day. It served the Roman colony of Arausio, and was closed by official edict in AD 391 due to opposition by the Church to its "uncivilized spectacles". Over the centuries it was pillaged by the Visigoths, used as a defensive post during the Middle Ages, and served as a refuge for the town during the religious wars of the 16th century. There traditionally has been debate about the date of construction of the Arc de Triomphe, but current research dates it to the reign of Augustus, between 27 BC and AD 14. It was built on the former Via Agrippa to honor the veterans of the Gallic Wars, and was later reconstructed by emperor Tiberius to celebrate the victories of Germanicus over the German tribes in Rhineland. It was built into the town's walls during the Middle Ages to guard the northern entry points of the town.

A faint dampstain to top corner in the first half, not touching text. Overall a very good copy.ìFriedrich List [1789-1846] is one of the earliest and most severe critics of the classical school of political economy. He denounced Adam Smith and his disciples as the ëcosmopolitan schoolí and held that universal free trade was an ideal that could be achieved only in the far distant future. For the time being, he argued, each nation should foster the development of its own manufacturers by import duties and even outright prohibitions. Only by such means could countries like Germany, Russia and the United States ever hope to achieve the industrial efficiency that would enable them to compete on equal terms with Britainî (Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, pp. 129-131).ìDespite the influence of Alexander Hamilton, the seeds of ëThe National System of Political Economyí are to be found in the romantic theories of Adam M¸ller (1779-1829). From him List derived his opposition to Adam Smith and the principle of free-trade. He denied Smithís parallel between the economic good of the individual and the state, and saw in Smithís ëfree tradeí unprincipled private advantage to the detriment of the state. To List, the nation was a separate unit standing between the concepts of the individual and humanity as a whole; its unity consisting of common language, traditions, culture and constitution. It followed that its wealth lay not in the capacity for commercial international exchange, as Smith held, bu in the development of its own economic and productive resources. Thus, the good of the national economy must override that of the individual. From this followed Listís theory of industrial politics, which was based on an alternating pattern of free trade and controls determined always by the final good of the state...These views coincided so exactly with the reawakening of German nationalism that Listís book caused a great sensation when it was published, and it remained for seventy years the theoretic gospel of the advocates of protectionist tariffs in Germany, Britain and the United Statesî (Printing and the Mind of Man).Einaudi.

        Nos Souvenirs de Kil-Bouroun Pendant l'Hiver Passé Dans le Liman du Dnieper, 1855-1856

      A beautiful and rare album comprising title page, a map showing the location of the naval battle of Kil-Bouroun (Kinburn), and 15 chromolithographic plates depicting mostly maritime scenes after the battle along the ice-bound Dnieper River, including inside the fort, disembarking onto the ice, and ruined fortifications, lithographed and colored by Eugene Ciceri and Adolphe Bayot, the ships drawn by Antoine Léon Morel-Fatio, after drawings by Paris. Some details appear to be hand-colored. Some scattered foxing, small stain to inside front cover, a few small tears along binding, spine very slightly shaken. Folio. Full leather, raised spine. Paris (Arthus-Bertrand/Becquet Freres) n.d. (circa 1856). The Battle of Kil-Bouroun (Kinburn) took place during the final phase of the Crimean War, on October 17, 1855, at the tip of the peninsula of Kinburn along the Dnieper River in modern-day Ukraine. During this naval battle, the British and French forces destroyed the Russian navy, having attacked them with a fleet of ironclad ships. The decisive battle helped to signify the decline of the traditional wooden warship. Very scarce; as of October 2017, WorldCat locates only two holdings in North America of this suite.

        Autograph signature on wrapper cover of: Medea. Ein Trauerspiel in drei Aufzügen und in Versen von Ernst Legouvé in italienischer Übersetzung von Josef Montanelli.

      (Paris, Morris), [ca. 1856]. - 8vo. 34 pp. Printed blue original wrappers. German-Italian libretto for Legouvé's "Medea" adaptation which premiered on 18 February 1858 at the Carl-Theater in Vienna's Leopoldstadt district, where Nestroy served as director from 1854 to 1860. The actors' names are corrected by hand, and Nestroy signed the secretary's presentation note for the board of censorship. The censor passed the text without any changes; his handwritten endorsement is at the end of the text. The performance with Adelaide Ristori in the title role marked the beginning of a series of twelve shows staged by the Italian theatrical company of Luigi Bellotti-Bon (1820-83). Nestroy's contribution to the play's success was noted in the press (cf. Die Presse no. 40, 19 Feb. 1858, p. 2). - Corners of upper cover carefully repaired. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Peter Piper's Practical Principles of Plain and Perfect Pronunciation. To Which is added a Collection of Moral and Entertaining Conundrums

      London: Griffith and Farran, 1856. Paperback. Very Good. Not dated circa 1856. Printed by Samuel Bentley & Co. 12mo. 32pp. Illustrated with 24 hand coloured woodcuts with verse below, one page for each letter and woodcut, X,Y & z sharing a page. Two leaves of conundrums at rear. Bound in the original yellow wrappers with a new spine; small nick to front margin; pages trimmed; there are minor marks throughout; a small nick/tear in margin, else a very good copy. Originally published by John Harris in 1813, Grant & Griffith were the successors of John Harris circa 1835, later changing their name to Griffith and Farran in 1856. The British Library does have both editions; the John Harris edition having 34pp; this edition with 32pp. ( A writer in ‘The London Magazine' for Nov. 1829 dismissed Harris's book of Tongue Twisters arranged in alphabetical order , Peter Piper's Practical Principles of Plain and Perfect Pronunciation, as ‘Degrading Trash' The Oxford Companion to Children's Literature') The Alphabet refers to figures of the day; i.e. G is Gilpin & Goose Gander; Inigo Impey inspected an Indian Image (veshnu). In the Conundrums section, the recent marriage of Queen Victoria to Albert is mentioned, dating the text after 1840, so is suspect that the conundrum section was updated in 1840 with a different type face.

        Naval

      1856 - 1870. 83 pages of manuscript entries, neatly written into a printed log-book (published by Benjamin Loring of Boston); plus 109 blank entry pages. 13½x8½, bound in period half calf and mottled boards, gilt-lettered morocco spine label, housed in a modern cloth slipcase. <br /><br />Records three voyages made by the Schooner "Georgia" over a 14-year period, starting a few years before and continuing to a few years after the American Civil War. Voyages include: 1856, Boston to Jacksonville (and return) with a stopover at Savannah (first 24 pages); 1859, Ipswich to Cambridge, Salisbury, Salem, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, and Newburyport (pp. 25-63); and 1870, Ipswich to Philadelphia, New York, Newark and Elizabethport, ending at Salem (pages 64-83).<br /><br /> Hand-written inscriptions appear to be from two different hands, reporting on weather conditions, ship repairs, navigation routes, ports of call, etc. With printed label from the Frederic W. Lincoln, Jr. Navigation Store on inside front cover. Most of the information inside has to do with weather conditions throughout the journey. <I>"Comes with strong breezes and thick with passing showers of rain at 1 p.m. wind increasing double reefed fore and main sail."</I> <br /><br />The town of Ipswich was founded on land that was originally inhabited by Native American tribes, who called the area "Agawam." The small settlement quickly prospered and by 1646 Ipswich had nearly 800 inhabitants. The early residents of Ipswich were farmers, fishermen, shipbuilders, and traders. By the mid-1700s bridges criss-crossed the Ipswich River, wharfs and storehouses aligned the shore of the navigable water, and a salt works, tannery and ship building yard were in operation. Fishing was the most profitable industry on the river. Ships from the West Indies unloaded molasses at the wharf. The barrels were rolled directly into a thriving distillery, the town's second largest commercial operation in Ipswich.

        Nos Souvenirs de Kil-Bouroun Pendant l'Hiver Passé Dans le Liman du Dnieper, 1855-1856

      A beautiful and rare album comprising title page, a map showing the location of the naval battle of Kil-Bouroun (Kinburn), and 15 chromolithographic plates depicting mostly maritime scenes after the battle along the ice-bound Dnieper River, including inside the fort, disembarking onto the ice, and ruined fortifications, lithographed and colored by Eugene Ciceri and Adolphe Bayot, the ships drawn by Antoine Léon Morel-Fatio, after drawings by Paris. Some details appear to be hand-colored. Some scattered foxing, small stain to inside front cover, a few small tears along binding, spine very slightly shaken. Folio. Full leather, raised spine. Paris (Arthus-Bertrand/Becquet Freres) n.d. (circa 1856). The Battle of Kil-Bouroun (Kinburn) took place during the final phase of the Crimean War, on October 17, 1855, at the tip of the peninsula of Kinburn along the Dnieper River in modern-day Ukraine. During this naval battle, the British and French forces destroyed the Russian navy, having attacked them with a fleet of ironclad ships. The decisive battle helped to signify the decline of the traditional wooden warship. Very scarce; as of October 2017, WorldCat locates only two holdings in North America of this suite.

        CANADA &#150; QUEBEC (MONTREAL-QUEBEC CITY CORRIDOR): PLAN OF THE ST. MAURICE TERRITORY.

      Lithograph, mounted upon original limp linen (Very Good, some wear along original folds, some light areas of toning, overall a fine example), 122 x 139 cm (48 x 55 inches). - Montreal: George Matthews, 1856. A scarce and monumental map of Quebec&#146;s St. Maurice Territory, the northern section of the Montreal-Quebec City Corridor, based upon groundbreaking surveys, created as a blueprint for the settlement of the interior regions beyond the seigneuries along the St. Lawrence, published for Canada&#146;s Department of Crown Lands by George Matthews in Montreal, in 1856. - This scarce, ultra-large format map depicts what was known as the &#145;St. Maurice Territory&#146;, or the areas between Montreal and Quebec City, to the north of the St. Lawrence River. The map was compiled by the Department of Crown Lands of Canada, under the supervision of its commissioner, Joseph Édouard Cauchon, and published in Montreal, in 1856, by the lithographer George Matthews. The purpose of the map was to act as a blueprint for the Crown&#146;s designs to settle the areas inland from the St. Lawrence.The St. Maurice Territory covered a vast expanse of land, centered upon the old city of Trois-Rivières. As evident on the map, the areas immediately bordering the St. Lawrence River had been intensively settled and farmed since the 17th Century, forming long narrow cadastral strips, or seigneuries, running up from the river. Conversely, the interior region beyond gave way to the lake-strewn Canadian Shield, and was traditionally scarcely settled by Europeans. The upper three-quarters of the present map clearly illustrate this situation.By the 1850s, the rich alluvial lands of the St. Lawrence and Richelieu Valleys of Canada East (Quebec) had become oversubscribed with respect to farmland available for new homesteads. It was considered necessary to open up the interior for development and to, hopefully, foster farming that could adapt to the harsher climate and less fertile soils of the Precambrian Shield. The present map was commissioned from original surveys with this purpose in mind. Joseph Édouard Cauchon (1816-1885) served as the Commissioner of Crown Lands of the united Canadas, from 1855 to 1857. This was a senior cabinet position, overseeing the government&#146;s largest department, and in charge of spearheading all designs to develop new territories, including the settlement of the interior of the St. Maurice Territory. Cauchon dispatched Crown surveyors to gather more intelligence on this sparsely settled territory, and the resulting survey maps and reports were brought back to the surveyor general&#146;s department in Quebec City, where they were fashioned into the manuscript for the present map. The map represented the next generation of the cartography of Quebec, building upon the superb trigonometric surveys conducted by Quebec&#146;s legendary late surveyor-general Joseph Bouchette (1774 - 1841). While Bouchette generally confined his efforts to scientifically mapping the long-settled regions of the St. Lawrence River and Gulf coasts, the present map provides a wealth of information on the interior, beyond the St. Lawrence, for the first time. While the old seigneuries are here shown in the correct, updated, form, more interesting are the depictions of the multiple &#145;New Settlements&#146; and newly-founded townships, to the back of the seigneuries. Some of these incipient settlements would later become quite significant population centres, such as &#145;Shawenigan&#146; (Shawinigan). Numerous new roads are marked, while the land is variously evaluated with notes such as &#145;Excellent Land&#146; or &#145;Very rough but Good&#146;. Beyond the new townships is a vast realm of lakes and forests, yet to be developed. The map shows only the beginning of a new wave of settlement, such that the map would be used as a guide for the Crown Lands Department to direct further development.
