David Livingstone (1813-1873) "became a missionary and was sent to South Africa by the London Missionary Society in 1840. From then onwards his life was devoted to the exploration of central Africa. Although a missionary he regarded himself more as a pioneer explorer opening up the country for others. Livingstone's services to African geography during thirty years are almost unequalled; he covered about a third of the continent from the Cape to the Equator and from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean. He made three great expeditions; in 1853-6 (described in this book), 1858-64 and 1865-73, of which the first and third are the most important. During these years he explored vast regions of central Africa, many of which had never been seen by white men before. Hie first discovered the Zambesi River at Secheke and followed it northwards, eventually reaching the west coast of Africa at Luanda, Angola, and the east coast at Quelimane, Mozambique. In 1855 he discovered the great falls of the Zambesi and named them the Victoria Falls. He explored the Zambesi, Shire and Ruyuma rivers and found the salt lake Chilwa and Lake Nyasa The geographical results of his journeys were of supreme importance, and made it possible to fill in great stretches of the maps of Central Africa which hitherto had been blank" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Bonn, 3. XI. 1857. 4 S., 4°. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - „Nöggerath verbrachte seine Schulzeit an der École centrale in Köln. Er wurde zunächst Bergkommissar im französischen Dienst, wurde dann aber 1814 Königlich Preußischer Geheimer Bergrat. Nöggerath war ab 1818 Professor für Mineralogie und später für Geologie an der Universität Bonn. Ab 1824 schrieb er fast ein halbes Jahrhundert unter dem Namen „Jakob Nöggerath“ zahllose wissenschaftliche Artikel für die damals renommierte Kölnische Zeitung. Er pflegte da auch journalistisch sein Hobby: die Erforschung der Hexenprozesse das Mittelalters. 1826 war Nöggerath Rektor der Hochschule [...]. Außerdem wurde auf der Südseite des Mondes der Krater Nöggerath nach ihm benannt“ (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. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Nöggerath, Schrötter, Mineralogie, Geologie, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        Archive of 40 autograph letters - 40 eigenhändige Briefe, davon 28 Unterschrit "J.B. Biot" bzw. "JBB", 12 Briefe aus Diskretionsgründen nicht unterschrieben.

      - Meist Paris 1857 bis 1860, einige ohne Jahresangabe bzw. ohne Datum. Zusammen 100 Seiten 4°und gr.8° u. 1 Briefumschlag. Von einer Ausnahme abgesehen mit geprägten Initialen am Kopf. Wenige Briefe leicht fleckig, insgesamt wohlerhalten. Jean Baptiste Biot (1774-1862), französischer Naturforscher; er stellte mit Félix Savart das Biot-Savartsche Gesetz für die Wirkung eines elektrischen Stroms auf einen magnetischen Pol auf und führte den Begriff der spezifischen Drehung der Polarisationsebene ein, zusammen mit Gay-Lussac unternahm er die erste wissenschaftliche Ballonfahrt. - Charmante Altersbriefe an seine "chère amie" Sophie Ducrest de Villeneuve (1789-1867), Stieftochter des Naturforschers Georges Cuvier. Biot berichtet ausführlich von seinem Alltagsleben, erwähnt seine wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten und seine Verpflichtungen als Mitglied der Akademie der Wissenschaften. - Hier einige kurze Auszüge: - - 20.VII.1857. ". J'ai revu . Mad. Binet et sa fille, deux personnes d'un charactère adorable, qui ont pour moi une vive affection, comme moi pour elles. J'ai ecrit une lettre de remerciement . à la belle Madame De Rougé; et après quelques moments passés à la séance de l'académie des sciences, j'irai tout à l'heure rendre visite à d'anciennes amies du faubourg St. Germain . je viens d'achever d'imprimer la notice que j'ai ecrite sur cauchy" (der Mathematiker Augustin Louis Couchy, 1789-1857), " laquelle aurait dû me distraire par le travail quelle ma coûte; et j'ai actuellement dans les mains des recherches sur l'ancienne astronomie egyptienne qui ont pour moi beaucoup d'attrait ." - - 3.VIII.1857. ". je suivrai vos préceptes, plus volontiers que ceux de tous les médecins du monde. jusqu'à présent ces douches, ne m'ont fait aucun mal. j'etais extrêmement adonné à la natation ." - - 21./22.VIII. (1857). ". Si vous étiez revenue à Paris en ce moment ., vous n'y trouveriez personne à qui parler, personne à recevoir. Admettons, que, dans votre solitude, il me fait permis de vous approcher ., aux heures où vous ètes habituellement visible pour tout le monde. Elles commencent tard, et finissent bientôt pour moi, qui demeure si loin. j'en jouirais avec délices. Je vous verrais, je vous porterais des fleurs, j'entreprendrais avec vous des lectures quelconques, fût ce Rabelais, si vous en aviez la fantaisie ." - - 28.VIII.1858. Um sofort auf ihren letzten Brief zu antworten und den von ihr bewiesenen Mut zu loben, unterbreche er seine Arbeit an einer Abhandlung für die Akademie, die er ohnehin kaum rechtzeitig fertigstellen könne. ". Cette attention de votre part m'a bien touché . Je n'ai pas pu vous en remercier plutôt, m'étant plongé, trop inconsiderément, dans un travail qui devait être lu lundi prochain à l'académie mais, reconnaissant l'impossibilité où je suis de le terminer pour ce jour là comme je m'y étais engagé, je quitte mon devoir pour mon plaisir, et je me mets à vous écrire. Votre description de cette nuit, de vos dangers , de vos craintes, est effrayante; et il faut tout votre courage, pour avoir eu la force d'en epargner l'angoisse à ma vive amitié . " - Madame de Villeneuve verbringt den Sommer in einem Bad und fühlt sich gelangweilt. Biot tröstet sie, dass sie in Paris nichts verpasse. ". Paris . est désert. Vous n'y trouveriez pas même des ennuyeux, pour vous amuser . nous n'avons, pour nous distraire, que des annonces d'ouragans, d'incendies, de tremblement de la terre, d'inondations. Si nous n'avions pas la guerre de chine, de l'inde, le télégraphe transatlantique, et les récits des ovations politiques, nous péririons d'ennui ." - - 5.II.1859. Biot fühlt sich niedergedrückt von dem langen Winter, von Sorgen um seine Enkeltochter und von unerfreulichen akademischen Verpflichtungen. ". La fatigue d'esprit que je ressentais depuis plusieurs mois, s'est aggravée par mille incidens réunis: La tristesse de l'hyver sombre et pluvieux; le manque des promenades; des inquiétudes sérieuses sur la santé .

Ce petit livre peu courant est, par surcroît, l'un des rares ouvrages non dédiés à la documentation qui utilisent, avant l'introduction du procédé de photogravure, la photographie comme moyen d'illustration. Cette dernière consiste en clichés de statues : le buste d'Horace en frontispice [4,5 x 6,5 cm], un putto tenant une grappe de raisin et un amour avec son arc [2 x 5,6 cm]. Ils sont tirés sur papier salé : le procédé, très à la mode en France des années 1840 à 1860, apporte à l'image un aspect mat et doux, ainsi que des tonalités naturellement chaudes. Coiffes un peu usées. Néanmoins, bon exemplaire dans sa reliure d'origine. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Album of Original Pen-and-Ink Drawings by a Student at the École Impériale d'Arts et Métiers d'Aix

      probably 1857-1860, Aix-en-Provence - Marbled paper over boards, backed in red sheep, gilt-stamped lettering in spine compartments; 311 x 230 mm; contains 70 double-page pen-and-ink drawings (open, they measure 311 x 445 mm), some enhanced with ink wash or watercolor, each with the artist's name and the professor's signatures (4 signatures in all). Boards and spine rubbed and scuffed; top corner of front board lacking. Contents are very near fine -- just some light foxing and a few small spots of soiling. Highly skilled technical drawings by Michel Clement, a student at the École Impériale d'Arts et Métiers d'Aix. The period of training was set at three years, with the first year devoted to arithmetic, geometry and drawing; the second year to descriptive geometry, trigonometry and mechanical drawing (of both stationary and moving parts); and the third year to industrial mechanics and advanced drafting techniques. This album affords a fascinating glimpse into the type and extent of the skills required of graduates of French technical schools in the mid-19th century. The course in design (cours de dessins) is structured, and presented here, in 4 sections: Troisieme division, premiere annee; deuxieme division (these drawings dated 1858-1859); deuxieme annee; and premiere division. The drawings include ornements (6), architecture (6), lavis (4), lever a l'equerre (1), echelles (1), epures (5), boulons et rivets (2), assemblages (1), geometrie descriptive (22), cinematique (5), organes de machine (3), topographie (2), machine outil (1), engrenages (6), machine a vapeur (1), treuil (1), machine a vapeur (2), hydraulique (1).

        Britton & Rey's Map of the State of California.

      San Francisco: Britton & Rey, 1857. - Single sheet, (31 x 25 ¼ inches). Fine folding lithographed map with original hand color in full (repaired tear, some browning and spotting). Original brown cloth with printed paper label (a bit rubbed). Provenance: From the important cartographical library of Warren Heckrotte, his sale, Rare Cartography, Exploration and Voyages, Part II, December 3, 2015, Lot 153. From the distinguished library of Thomas W. Streeter, his bookplate to the front pastedown. With the label of J.J. LeCount Bookbinder San Francisco on front pastedown. "BY FAR THE MOST COMPLETE AND ACCURATE MAP OF CALIFORNIA" (Wheat) First edition. Important map of California in first edition, with very distinguished provenance. Noted in California 49 as "the first reasonably accurate and complete map of the state. Towns, great and small, county boundaries, stage and wagon roads, including a few that traverse the Sierra Nevada, and California's first railroad from Sacramento to Folsom appear. None of the errors found on Eddy's map are present. Lake Tahoe. is shown at its correct location." Warren Heckrotte notes that "This is the Streeter-Grabhorn copy and the copy that Wheat says he used for making his description in Maps of the California Gold Region. The map is rare." "In 1857 the state of knowledge of Sierra Nevada geography was outlined in the most detailed map of California to date, a map prepared by civil engineer, surveyor, architect, and artist George H. Goddard. Goddard was born in Bristol, England, and was educated at Oxford. He, like many others, was drawn to California by the prospect of making his fortune in the gold rush. In 1850, at the age of 33, he sailed to California by way of Cape Horn. The journey from Plymouth to San Francisco, with an eight-day stopover in the Falkland Islands before rounding the Horn, took 180 days. His wife and two children remained in Europe until 1858, when the family was finally reunited. Within a year after their arrival in California a third child was born. "Goddard went to the goldfields and became a partner in a drugstore in Columbia, but by 1853 he had begun a career as a surveyor. He also maintained a professional interest in architecture, and began a serious interest in landscape painting. His first expedition was a survey of a possible railroad route over the Sierra at Sonora Pass, a route already traversed by a wagon road. The work led Goddard to other mapping excursions around the state. All the while he took copious notes and measurements that would help him later in compiling the California map. "In 1855, working for the California Surveyor General, he made a reconnaissance survey of the route over Carson Pass, and also surveyed the boundary between California and Utah Territory (in what is now western Nevada). For this work Goddard carried altitude and azimuth transits and chronometers, so that he could accurately determine by astronomical observations the latitude and longitude of important survey stations. When location and circumstance permitted, he checked the chronometers against time signals received on newly erected telegraph lines "The Goddard map of the state of California, published in 1857 by order of the Surveyor General of California [as here], is based partly on the Fremont map of 1848, though many details have been added and other improvements have been made. The map (Goddard, 1857) shows no trails crossing the Sierra in the 200-mile span of the range crest from Sonora Pass, north of Yosemite, to Walker Pass, 50 miles south of Owens Lake. No habitation is shown in Owens Valley. The U.S. Army's Fort Independence is not shown; it was established five years later, on July 4, 1862, as a result of skirmishes between settlers and Indians. The main settlement in the Central Valley of California adjacent to the parks area was Visalia (spelled 'Visaija' on the map). Fresno, Bakersfield, and Merced had not yet been settled. The map shows Tulare Lake to be about 40 miles long, whereas on the Fremont map [Attributes: First Edition]

Holloway no date ? 1857 - Small 8vo, 127 x 77 mms., pp. xvi [xvii dedication to William Wilberforce, xviii blank], 210 [211 - 212 blank], including half-title, engraved frontispiece and engraved title-page before printed title-page. BOUND WITH: H. (B.): A Companion to the Annals of the Poor. By H. B. Hyde: H. R. Holloway, [no date]. 8vo, 127 x 77 mms., pp. [9] - 61 [62 blank], with separate registration and pagination. 2 volumes in 1, bound in contemporary embossed cloth, blocked in gilt on spine; shaken in casing, front hinge cracked and tender, front joint snagged, top of spine chipped and worn. Inscribed horizontally on the recto of the front free end-paer, "To Mary/ With Cousin Alex's best love/ January 6th 1857." The evangelical Church of England clergyman, Richmond Legh (1772 - 1827) collected the stories in Annals of the Poor while he was living on the Isle of Wight and published them in the Christian Guardian between 1809 and 1814; the first collected edition was published in 1814 by the Religious Tract Society. I have not been able to identify "H. B.," who provides a memoir of the life of Legh Richmond in Annals; in his Preface to A Companion to the Annals of the Poor, he doesn't disclose any further information, saying only that "The following Appendix has been written to guide the pious or the curious pilgrim to scenes which the Rev. Legh Richmond has sanctified by rendering them subservient to the cause of holiness, and to afford such additional information as seem desirable to the inquiring way-farer, and to collect within a convenient and accessible space such matter as may tend to elucidate the 'Annals of the Poor.'" I have not located a separately-printed copy of the Companion. The Bodleian Library has a copy printed in Ryde in 1860, but the present copy's inscription confirms a publication earlier than 1857. Otherwise, I have not been able to locate any copy of this edition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
