Bardeleben hat nicht nur im Unterricht im Hohen Grade anregend gewirkt, sondern ist als Lehrer noch besonders hervorragend durch sein Lehrbuch der Chirurgie und Operationslehre hervorgetreten."

        AN ALBUM OF 19TH CENTURY GERMAN SCENERY

      1857. n. Hardcover. With Richly-Colored Mid-19th Century German Scenes. 152 x 241 mm (6 x 9 1/2"). Original blue buckram with charming panels of woven straw resembling embroidered samplers on covers, that on upper cover with pink, blue, and green floral frame and natural-colored floral cornerpieces enclosing the word "ALBUM," that on lower cover with checkerboard frame and large central floral bouquet in pink, blue, green, and white, with pink roses in corners, flat spine, moir?-textured white endpapers, all edges gilt. WITH 23 ATTRACTIVE HAND-COLORED ENGRAVED VIEWS OF GERMAN SCENERY, some highlighted with gum arabic, all mounted on blank leaves; some of the cards with handwritten captions with the date "1857."Very short tears to cloth at head and tail of front joint, cloth a little rubbed, lower panel with half a dozen tiny losses to frame, front hinge beginning to weaken at bottom, isolated minor foxing and thumbing, but still a very well-preserved example of a fragile item. This is a delightful souvenir of a tour of Germany, offered in a binding with delicate handmade decoration that represents a lucky survival. Woven straw bindings are uncommon, both because of the considerable labor necessary to produce them in the first place and because of the fragility that has militated against their survival. An album of holiday pictures would have seen much use, as the owner relived adventures or shared them with friends, and the present item has seen its share of careful handling. Still, the rustic beauty of the meticulously woven straw panels remains intact and retains its Victorian appeal. The British Library has at least one 19th century pictorial woven straw binding (shelfmark c188c4) made in England, where the present binding could have been produced--though it is more likely continental. In any case, the workmanship and design in the BL example are not so fine as what is seen here.

      . . Borba de Moraes II, 619 u. 621 ("Scarce"); Ferguson, Australia, VII, 15471a; Henze V, 548 (Wüllerstorf-Urbair) u. 32f. (Scherzer). - Gutes Exemplar der "großen" Ausgabe des offiziellen Berichts über die Weltfahrt der "Novara". Die Expedition der Novara gilt als die letzte große wissenschaftliche Weltumsegelung des 19. Jahrhunderts. Besonders erfolgreich und ergiebig waren die wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten der Expedition im Südpazifik und Ozeanien. So erforschte u.a. der teilnehmende Geologe Fr. Hochstetter für nahezu ein Jahr Neuseeland. Zu den besuchten und beschriebenen Ankerplätzen gehörten ferner Rio de Janeiro, das Kap der guten Hoffnung, Ceylon, Madras, Singapur, Java, Manila, Hongkong, Shanghai, Sydney, Tahiti und Valparaiso. Die Beweggründe für die Ausrichtung des außerordentlich teuren Unternehmens legt der Kommandant des Schiffes, von Wüllerstorf-Urbair, in seinem Vorwort dar: Angeregt durch die großen Erfolge anderer Nationen, wie zum Beispiel der Amerikaner (Japan-Expedition Perrys), sei man auch in Österreich zu der Ansicht gelangt, dass eine Expedition durchaus neben wissenschaftlichen auch wirtschaftlichen Zwecken dienen könne. So war es u.a. Aufgabe der Novara "die österreichische Flagge an verschiedenen von ihr (der Kriegsmarine) noch nicht besucht gewesenen Punkten zu zeigen (und) die Interessen der Industrie ... zu fördern". Gleichzeitig war aber von Beginn an geplant, die Expedition mit einem Stab ausgewählter Wissenschaftler auszustatten. Als wissenschaftliche Arbeitsgrundlage sollten die extra bei Alexander von Humboldt angeforderten "Physikalischen und geognostischen Erinnerungen" (Erstdruck als "Beilage" in Bd. I) dienen. Es verwundert nicht, dass der Bericht über die geglückte Weltreise in einem der Bedeutung des Unternehmens angemessenen, großzügigen Rahmen erschien. So wurde u.a. viel Sorgfalt auf eine reiche Ausstattung mit Karten- u. Bildbeilagen, die von dem eigens mitgeschickten Künstler Joseph Selleny stammen, verwendet. - Gutes, teilweise nicht ganz aufgeschnittenes Exemplar. 2 Faltkarten mit hinterlegten Einrissen, bei 2 Bänden Titel rückseitig gestempelt (tlw. rasiert). ** Bestellungen bis 14 Uhr versenden wir am selben Tag. - Schweizer Postkonto vorhanden. **

        Iconographie des Pigeons non figurés par Mme Knip dans les deux volumes de MM. Temminck et Florent Prévost.

      Paris, P. Bertrand, 1857-1858. Large-folio (560 x 370mm). With 55 beautifully handcoloured lithographed plates by Lemercier after drawings by P.L. Oudard, F. Willy and E. Blanchard. Original printed wrapper (slightly torn), preserved in a recent blue cloth box. All published of this fine work, which was intended as a supplement to "Les Pigeons", by Knip, Temminck and Prévost. The original plan for this work embraced 30 issues with 150 plates. The author died however after the 4th issue and Moquin-Tandon brought out 8 more. "The handcoloured bird portraits are extremely fine" (Wood). Charles Lucien Bonaparte was the nephew of Napoleon Bonaparte. Despite his family connections and the disruptions that followed the Napoleonic era, he became a competent and highly respected naturalist. "The prince himself (C.L. Bonaparte) stayed only a short time in America and returned to Europe for good in 1828, with his wife and young son, choosing Rome for his permanent residence. There he actively pursued his beloved taxonomic studies and research, which extended more and more to birds of the whole world and, by 1831, had made him so famous among ornithologists that Swainson could write, "To Charles Lucia Bonaparte, Prince of Musignano, not only the eyes of America, but Europe may be turned, as to one who seems destined by Nature to confer unperishable benefits on this noble science." (Stresemann pp. 157-8). Bonaparte was famous for his continuation of Wilson's 'American Ornithology' and his 3 volume work on the fauna of Italy. One text leaf with dampstaining at lower margin. Some occasional slight foxing to some of the plates. A copy with fine colouring of the plates.//Nissen IVB, 117; Fine Bird Books, p. 60; see also P.T.

      Washington: Cornelius Wendell, Printer, 1857 & 1859. First edition, House of Representative Issue . Two volume set. 258+174,270+78+62+32+35+83pp. Quarto [29 cm] Original brown cloth boards with new matching leather backstrip with with gilt stamped titles. Ex-libris Aaron Harrison Cragin (1821-1898), a United States Representative and Senator from New Hampshire. He was a member of the U.S. House when this report was issued. Cragin has inscribed both volumes to Mrs. Abbot Frazier of New Hampshire, who presented this work to the Public Library of Brookline. Minimal library markings include an embossed stamp to each title page., a bookplate to each front free endsheet, and remnants of removed pockets and labels to the rear endsheets. The plates and contents are unusually bright. Illustrated with the large folding geographical map (the folding geological map of the West is not present; it was not issued in all copies), folding geological profile, folding meteorological chart, 44 textual wood engravings, and 345 full-page plates of landscapes, inhabitants, flora and fauna, including 12 lithographs printed in color and 24 of 25 hand-colored ornithological plates. There is a duplicate of Fishes (Plate 17). Rarely found complete.& & The foundational work on the exploration of the Texas and Mexican Border. Emory was assigned to the Boundary Commission after the Mexican War. This expeditions task was to study the topography, flora and fauna of the area, and the boundary as surveyed has remained intact, with only minor alterations. The report contains sections on the geology, zoology, botany, ichthyology, and ornithology, and is perhaps the most complete scientific description ever made of the lands and the peoples of the border country. & & This is one of the most significant of all government reports on western and southern Texas. According to J. Frank Dobie, "Emory's great two volume report is , aside from descriptions of borderlands and their inhabitants, a veritable encyclopedia, wonderfully illustrated, on western flora and fauna."

        [Broadside song]: Annie Lawrie

      San Francisco: A.T. Dewey, traveling agent. Sold by Chas. W. Tyler. [circa 1857]. One leaf folded into four pages, printed only on the first leaf. A popular Scottish song. OCLC records four copies, all in California, and attributes a date of "1880s," which seems off by about 25 years; the song first made its appearance in the U.S. around 1850, which seems much closer in style with the type of paper and the printing on this sheet; the only other music we could find distributed by Tyler at his San Francisco book store was dated in 1860. .

        Two autograph letters signed to [James] Marshall

      1857. <p>Sedgwick, Adam (1785-1873). Two autograph letters signed to [James] Marshall. Dent [Yorkshire], Oct. 7, 1857; Trinity College [Cambridge], Oct. 31, 1857. 8pp. total. 186 x 113 mm. Light soiling along folds, but very good.</p><p>Letters with excellent scientific content from one of the founders of modern geology. Sedgwick was responsible for defining the Devonian and Cambrian ages in the geological time scale, and his immensely popular lecture courses on geology, delivered annually at Cambridge between 1819 and 1870, had an enormous influence on succeeding generations of English geologists. One of his students was Charles Darwin, who began attending Sedgwick&#39;s lectures in January 1831 and accompanied Sedgwick on a geological field tour of Wales the following summer. The two men remained friends until Sedgwick&#39;s death, even though Sedgwick was never able to accept Darwin&#39;s theory of evolution by natural selection.</p><p>IIn his Oct. 7 letter to Marshall, Sedgwick discusses the geological researches he was then undertaking in England&#39;s Lake District:</p><p>"I mean D.V. to work my way to Ulverston; & on Saturday or possibly Monday to transfer my head quarters to Broughton. I want to connect our work in all quarries on the east side of the road, with the great open quarries in the Ireleth country; which we failed to do. The beds in the great open quarries strike very differently from those you & I saw; yet the strike of the cleavage (?) is unchanged in direction & from end to end almost perpendicular--I think it highly probable that the bed between the Ireleth slate & the Ulverston estuary are nearly all from the flag or flag & grit--And I suspect that some hard gritty ridges I remember to have seen in a part of Cartmell Fell, are but a repetition (by enormous fault) of the Comiston grits. . . ." </p><p>Sedgwick also notes his intention to "hear Dr. Livingstone&#39;s evening lecture"; this is a reference to David Livingstone (1813-73), famous for his exploration of Africa. Sedgwick later provided a preface to Dr. Livingstone&#39;s Cambridge Lectures (1858).</p><p>In his Oct. 31 letter, Sedgwick touches on his precarious health--"On Monday I ought to have begun my course of lectures but on that day I had a severe relapse of vertigo & was obliged to put off my lectures until Friday (yesterday)"--and continues his discussion of his work:</p><p>"All the rocks from the Ireleth country to the Comiston Ulverston sands are Comiston flag--But in our final traverse we found the hard Comiston grits in the hills S. W. of Penny Bridge--just where they ought to be--I think there is an enormous break down the valley meeting the complicated faults (which come down from the hill a little North of Seathwaite) at an angle.--In short the country from Ireleth Moor inclusive, to the Sand of Ulverston, has had a shove southwards of about five miles!"</p><p>The recipient of these letters, James Marshall, was an amateur geologist and Fellow of the Geological Society. A friend of both Sedgwick and John Herschel, Marshall was "a keen advocate of scientific education" (Briggs, Victorian Cities [1993], p. 161). Olroyd, Earth, Water, Ice and Fire (2002), p. 20.

      Paris. 1857 - Size: 600 x 845 mm. Very good condition Steel engraving. Original outline colour with later additions. An interesting view of Italy from a commercial and industrial perspective with numerous decorative embellishments. There is statistical information about various parts of Italy on the top and bottom of the map with 8 attractive vignettes depicting fauna, flora, natural treasures, as well as Italian landscapes and architecture of different regions. These include Italy in general, Lombardy, regions of Parma, Modena, Tuscany, Vatican, region of Naples, and St. Marin. Alexandre Vuillemin (1812-1880) was a cartographer and a book editor based in Paris. Despite a prolific cartographic career, much of Vuillemin's life is shrouded in mystery. What is known is that his studied under the prominent French Auguste Henri Dufour (1798-1865). Vuillemin's most important work is his detailed, highly decorative large format Atlas de Géographie Commerciale et Industrielle, which this map is a taken.

        Scott's Poetical Works - 12 vols

      Adam and Charles Black Edinburgh 1857 - 1st Thus, Very Good+/ No Jacket, Half-Leather. For those who are interested in the works of Sir Walter Scott, this set is a real find. The poetical works of Scott are more important than those of many authors because poetry is how he began his career and he never really stopped telling stories in verse. His fascination with his own country's native poetry led him to compile and publish his first work, The Minstrelsy of the Southern Border. After this he began to write full length books in verse such as The Lay of the Last Minstrel and The Lady of the Lake. Scott was a true scholar of literature as well as poetry and these twelve volumes contain all of his notes and introductions along with various readings and the editor's notes. There is much information and pleasure to be found in this set. The books are bound in half-leather over marbled boards. They are 12mo in size. The endpapers are also marbled. there is some normal shelfwear to the books that has occurred over the years. The spines are very nicely decorated in gilt and each separate volume has a frontispiece as well as a pictorial title page. In four of the volumes the tissue guard (small piece of tissue paper between the frontispiece and the title page) is not present. Most volumes show some shelfwear such as a bit of wear to the top and bottom of the spines and extremities. Volume eight shows particular wear to the spine. All of the bindings are very tight and the textblocks are clean with no foxing. All edges are nicely marbled and within the texts there is also printed the musical scores to the rhymes which had been set to melody thus being historical folk songs so to speak. This is a wonderful set that will be enjoyed for generations as it indeed has already been enjoyed by previous generations. We are pleased to send pictures on request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        View from the Upper Terrace Walk, in the Gardens at Shrublands

      Published by T. McLean, London 1857 - A stunning view of the gardens at Westfield Halll on the Isle of Wight, from the "The Gardens of England." The Italian-style garden at Shrublands was designed by the Victorian architect Sir Charles Barry with later modifications by William Robinson. It is a prime example of the Italian style of garden design that was popular in England during the early nineteenth century, and which was characterized by the use of decorative edifices, classical architectural elements, and stairways. Published in 1857, The Gardens of England was a series of 24 plates with accompanying text depicting the diverse luxuriant gardens of various distinguished English mansions. The mid-nineteenth century was a period during which the traditional aesthetics of garden design underwent a significant change in England, as innovative ideas and concepts were being continually introduced and explored. Brooke's publication embodies the eclectic nature of Victorian garden design and constitutes an important visual survey of the varied styles that were popular among the wealthy and fashionable. Little is known about E. Adveno Brooke, other than that he exhibited at the Royal Academy and British Institution between 1853 and 1864 and his most significant publication was The Gardens of England . Cf. Abbey, Scenery of Great Britain and Ireland, 392; cf. Benezit, Dictionnaire Des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs , Vol. 2, p. 842. Colour-printed lithograph. Very good condition, with the exception of being trimmed a bit close to the image at the top and bottom, cutting into the text slightly at bottom.

        Memoire sur l'etude optique. Signed presentation copy of the very rare offprint.

      Mallet-Bachelier, Paris 1857 - Lissajous Figures: Inscribed Presentation Copy of the Very Rare OffprintLissajous, Jules Antoine (1822-80). Memoire sur l'Etude optique des mouvements vibratoires. Offprint from Annales de chimie et de physique, 3rd series, 51 (1857). 8vo. 87, [1]pp. 2 folding plates with tissue guards. Paris: Mallet-Bachelier, 1857. 223 x 147 mm. Plain green wrappers c. 1857, front wrapper with author's signed presentation inscription: "A Monsieur Vincent de l'Institut, Souvenir affectueux de l'auteur, J. Lissajous." First signature a bit browned, title a little soiled, scattered foxing especially on tissue guards, otherwise fine. 2 sheets ms. calculations laid in, probably by the recipient of the offprint. First Separate Edition. Lissajous's most comprehensive paper on his optical method of studying vibration, which gave rise to the widely used "Lissajous figures," defined mathematically as curves in the xy plane generated by the functions y = a sin (w1t + q1) and x = b sin (w2t + q2) where w1 and w2 are small integers. "Like some other physicists of his time, Lissajous was interested in demonstrations of vibration that did not depend on the sense of hearing. . . . [His] most important research, first described in 1855, was the invention of a way to study acoustic vibrations by reflecting a light beam from the vibrating object onto a screen. . . . Lissajous produced two kinds of luminous curves. In the first kind, light is reflected from a tuning fork (to which a small mirror is attached), and then from a large mirror that is rotated rapidly. . . . The second kind of curve, named the 'Lissajous figure,' is more useful. The light beam is successively reflected from mirrors on two forks that are vibrating about mutually perpendicular axes. Persistence of vision causes various curves, whose shapes depend on the relative frequency, phase, and amplitude of the forks' vibrations. . . . If one of the forks is a standard, the form of the curve enables an estimate of the parameters of the other. As Lissajous said, they enable one to study beats (the ellipses rotate as the phase difference changes). 'Lissajous figures' have been, and still are, important in this respect" (DSB). Lissajous figures are sometimes used in graphic design as logos. Examples include the logos of the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (a = 1, b = 3, d = p/2) and the Lincoln Laboratory at MIT (a = 4, b = 3, d = 0).Prior to modern computer graphics, Lissajous curves were typically generated using an oscilloscope. Two phase-shifted sinusoid inputs are applied to the oscilloscope in X-Y mode and the phase relationship between the signals is presented as a Lissajous figure. Lissajous curves can also be traced mechanically by means of a harmonograph. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
