        Notes penned by Pasteur in his laboratory shortly before discovering that fermentation is caused by biochemical action of tiny organisms, but they must be the right tiny organisms, saving France?s wine and beer industries

      Autograph Manuscript (unsigned) in French, 2p, 7.25? x 9.5?. No place, June 19-28 [1857]. Not translated. Handwritten in pencil at top edge, in unknown hand, ?(fermentation de l?acide Tartrique) From his laboratory / notebook / tartaric acid.?Seven groups of 11 numbered items, possibly test tubes, have been handwritten by Pasteur: One group on June 19th, four groups on June 22nd, and two groups on June 28th. In his notes to the right of the June 19th group, Pasteur brackets Numbers 1 and 2 and, in French, compares numbers 5 and 7 with 8 and 9, concluding ?In the same way N. 8 and 9 during the 24 first hours.? He then pens ?Report of N.3 and 4 / N.1 and 2 = 4, 6.? On June 22nd, Pasteur brackets four additional pairs of numbers and ?Report = 4, 3.? There are numerous brackets on the second page.Pasteur found that although tiny organisms were essential in fermentation they must be the right ones. He showed brewers how to culture the right organisms for good beer and d

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

      Paris: Mallet-Bachelier, 1857. <p>Lissajous Figures: Inscribed Presentation Copy of the Very Rare Offprint</p><p>Lissajous, Jules Antoine (1822-80). Memoire sur l&#39;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&#39;s signed presentation inscription: "A Monsieur Vincent de l&#39;Institut, Souvenir affectueux de l&#39;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. </p><p> First Separate Edition. Lissajous&#39;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.</p><p> "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 &#39;Lissajous figure,&#39; 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&#39; 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). &#39;Lissajous figures&#39; have been, and still are, important in this respect" (DSB). </p><p>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).</p><p>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.</p>

        A TOPOGRAPHICAL ACCOUNT OF THE HUNDRED OF BOSMERE, in the County of Southampton. Including the parishes of Havant, Warblington and Hayling

      London, Published by John Russell Smith, and Andrew Northcroft, 1857.FIRST EDITION 1856 / 1857, large 8vo, approximately 285 x 190 mm, 11¼ x 7¼ inches, extra engraved title page dated 1856 with printer's device, letterpress title page dated 1857, 22 plates: a full page map of the area with blue colouring, a mounted map of Hayling Island and 20 plates, 1 folding, 13 text illustrations of fish, birds and plants in the Appendix on the natural history of Hayling (20 pages), pages: vi, (2), 343 including Appendix and indexes, bound in quarter red morocco over red cloth sides, gilt raised bands, gilt decoration in compartments, gilt title and author, new endpapers. Engraved title page lightly foxed all over, slight pale foxing to margins of letterpress title, few pale fox spots to map, very occasional pale spotting to margins including those of plates, folding plate faintly browned, faint foxing to top image on plate at page 292. Most copies located are dated 1857 and do not have the engraved title page or the large map of Bosmere. Instead they have the map of Hayling Island as frontispiece, so listed on the plate list, and a plate of the NEW Vicarage House which is not on our list (we have only the Old Vicarage House). Our plate list does not call for a frontispiece and originally counted 21 plate titles on 21 pages but one of these titles was completely blacked out by the publisher and excised at page 267, leaving a narrow stub. This excised plate is not listed at all on the plate list of the copies without engraved title page. At page 293 and at 295 in our copy there are actually 2 plates not 1 as it seems on the list, making our total of 22. Our edition with the map of Bosmere and the engraved title page would seem more desirable, but further light needs shedding on the precedence of the two issues.

        Géographie du moyen Age, étudiée par Joachim Lewelel

      Pilliet, 1852-1854-, Bruxelles 1857 - Four parts text bound in one volume, with epilogue and atlas volumes, the latter oblong folio; 18 plates (some folding) in the text volumes, 50 plates (see note) in the atlas volume, excellent impressions of all the plates; the three volumes differently bound: recent quarter morocco with green boards (text); early crimson pebbled cloth, a little frayed at spine (epilogue); modern half green morocco over marbled boards (atlas). Rare complete set with the full complement of maps. First edition, with the full suite of lithographic plates, depicting any number of famous and important early maps, by a 'pioneer writer on cartography' (Tooley). This is one of the most important - and eccentric - early studies of the geography of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance, and is only rarely seen complete with its folio atlas and the particularly uncommon epilogue volume of 1857. Lelewel's comprehensive intensive study of classical Greek, Latin and Arab sources, with each of the intricately engraved plates prepared by the author himself, includes the accounts of navigators, pilots and voyagers, and his scholarship makes it a significant source for cartography and the history of travel. The work is wide in scope, and whether Lelewel is discussing the foundations of modern Ptolemaic geography, the peregrinations of the Jewish scholar Benjamin of Tudele, or the great fourteenth-century Arab expeditions of Ibn Battuta, his synthesis of the field is magisterial. Lelewel was a Polish historian, educated at the Imperial University of Vilna. Although of Prussian descent, he became an ardent nationalist and his lectures on Polish history galvanised the country. One of the rebels of the November Uprising against the Russian authorities in 1830, he went into exile in Paris soon after the rebellion was suppressed, and was soon after forced to leave France for Brussels at the explicit request of the Russian Ambassador. A friend of Marx and Engels, he was a political agitator throughout his life. The plate count is complex, but the present example has the full complement. The folio atlas has 50 plates, as required: 49 are full page lithographs, while the remaining map (plate 47) is tipped on to the title-page, as instructed in the plate listing (this has caused some confusion among bibliographers; Howes, for example, lists "49" plates only). The question of the smaller plates for the text volumes has also been confused: Graesse calls for 12 plates, but the listing does not include the epilogue volume; Leclerc, who does notice the epilogue, calls for only 14 plates in total; Sabin does not list the smaller plates; and lastly, Howes lists 18 plates. This example with 18 & 50 plates, then, corresponds to the largest number of plates recorded by any of the bibliographers. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Reisen in Südwest-Afrika in den Jahren 1850 bis 1854. Aus dem Schwedischen von Dr. Hermann Lotze, 2 Bände.

      Leipzig, Otto Purfürst, o. J. (1857).. Erstausgabe. XVI, 288, IX, 288 S.Braune Halbleinenbände der Zeit mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln sowie sehr schönem mehrfarbigen Buchschnitt. Mit 15 (v. 16) ganzseitigen Stahlstich-Tafeln in Tondruck sowie zahlreichen, partiell teilkolorierten Holzschnitt-Illustrationen (ohne die im Titel des ersten Bandes genannte Karte). Bd. 2 mit Alphabetischem Register. Faszinierende Reisebeschreibung des schwedischen Abenteurers und Forschungsreisenden Karl Johan Andersson (1827 - 1867). Anderssen brach im August 1850 von der südwestafrikanischen Hafenstadt Walfischbucht aus zusammen mit dem Afrikaforscher Francis Galton auf, um das Ovamboland im Norden des Landes und den Weg zum Ngamisee im Betschuanaland zu erkunden. Sie erreichten das Ovamboland 1852, das sie im Folgenden mehrere Monate durchstreiften, und wandten sich 1853 nach Osten Richtung Ngamisee. Andersson fertigte während der Reise zahlreiche Aufzeichnungen zur Flora und Fauna der Region an, die er später in dem zweibändigen Werk "Lake Ngami" (London 1856) veröffentlichte. Andersson gründete später in dem Ort Otjimbingwe eine erfolgreiche Handelsniederlassung, die er mit einer privaten Armee aus Herero-Freiwilligen schützte. Als dort am 15. Juni 1863 eine Kriegerschar des Stammes der Afrikaner erschien, die im Zuge einer Auseinandersetzung mit dem Hererohäuptling Maharero den Ort zu plündern versuchte, schlug Andersson an der Seite Mahareros die Eindringlinge zurück und wurde daraufhin ehrenhalber zum "Befehlshaber aller Herero auf Lebenszeit" ernannt, eine Ehre, wie sie sonst niemals einem Europäer zuteil wurde.. Die Bände in gutem, sauberem Zustand, ein deckel des ersten Bandes mit kleiner Stoßstelle (unauffällig), sonst kaum berieben oder bestoßen; Seiten partiell leicht fleckig; die Tontafeln sehr gut erhalten. Gutes Exemplar dieser frühen, überaus originell illustrierten südwestafrikanischen Reisebeschreibung aus der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. Sehr selten! Zahlreiche weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

Umfang- und inhaltsreiche Korrespondenz des bedeutenden französischen Philosophen und Soziologen, der u.a. großen Einfluß auf Jules Barbey d'Aurevilly, Louis Veuillot, Leon Bloy, Rene de La Tour du Pin, Georges Bernanos oder Pierre Virion ausübte. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr.

        Ampio e interessante manoscritto autografo di otto pagine in - 4 su una colonna, con correzioni e cancellature autografe, dal titolo Delle lettere scelte di Pietro Giordani proposte alla gioventù, con un discorso di Filippo Ugolini (Barbera Bianchi e Comp., 1857). Si tratta della recensione al volume Lettere scelte di Pietro Giordani proposte alla gioventù, con un discorso di Filippo Ugolini. L'ho veduto Maestà, il libretto delle Lettere scelte di Pietro Giordani stampate dal Barbera ad uso della gioventù con il discorso premessovi da Filippo Ugolini, e mi è parso lodabile pensiero essere stato nello stampatore che non fosser privi al tutto dell'utile di un cotal libro, com'è l'epistolario del Girolami, da desiderarsi che vada per le mani di ognuno, i moltissimi cui può non esser facile né opportuno di compensarsi i sette volumi di quello pubblicati dal Gussalli a Milano. Anco in generale mi è parsa ben fatta la scelta delle lettere, chi pensi che volendo offerirle alla gioventù come modelli in simil genere di scritture, era da guardare più che altro alla perfetta eleganza, e da imporsi alcune leggi da osservare, come di lasciar finora tutte le lettere che non fossero intere, o raccontassero alcun fatto o contenessero alcuna espressione ch'a giovinetti non fosse utile di mostrare Quanto poi al discorso del'Ugolini premesso alle Lettere scelte io vorrei, Maestà, come lo commendo per il bene ch'è dice del Giordani scrittore oggi che tanto putridame il venerando suo nome, cosà poter commendarlo per tutte sue opinioni e per il modo di esporle. Dove anzi s'io guardo, e lo trovo in questo non troppo felice, e non so in quelle sempre convenire con lui. Conclude Di che io seriamente pensando, forte mi pento dell'ingiusta accusa portata contro li amici vostri, e dolente ve ne porgo mie scuse. Le quali purché siano accettate, volentieri prometto di mutar mia opinione quanto alla stima ch'io ho del Giordani. Ricomincio fin d'ora pieno d'orgoglio con vostra Maestà Oh qu'ils sont petits les grands hommes!' ed aggiungendoci Oh come son grandi i mediocri!' Maestà ho detto.

        Confessio Amantis of John Gower

      London - Bell and Daldy, 1857. London - Bell and Daldy, 1857 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. John Gower&#39;s Middle English narrative poem. Complete in three volumes. Edited by Dr. Reinhold Pauli, with an introductory essay on the poet&#39;s life and writings; first edition thus. The poem uses the confession made by an ageing lover to the chaplain of Venus as a frame story for a collection of shorter narrative poems. According to its prologue, it was composed at the request of Richard II. It stands with the works of Chaucer, Langland, and the Pearl poet as one of the great works of late 14th century English literature. One scholar asserts that Confessio Amantis almost exclusively made Gower&#39;s poetic reputation. John Gower (c. 1330 October 1408) was an English poet, a contemporary of William Langland and a personal friend of Geoffrey Chaucer. Gower&#39;s verse is by turns religious, political, historical, and moral. Condition: In calf bindings, expertly rebacked. Externally, smart with some wear to corners and one or two marks to boards. Internally, firmly bound. Foxing to first and last couple of pages but otherwise bright and clean. Overall: VERY GOOD.

        Amor und Ganymed, 1857

      1857. Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts signiert und datiert: "Robert Krausse invenit Juni 1857", Durchmesser der Darstellung: 15 cm, Papiermaß: 20,6 x 18,1 cm. Amor und Ganymed sind beide zwar häufige Gäste auf Gemälden und Zeichnungen, doch gemeinsam tauchen Sie höchst selten auf. Dabei macht diese Paarung ikonographisch durchaus Sinn, denn die Liebe zwischen Ganymed und Zeus, der hier in Form des Adlers erscheint, steht im Mittelpunkt des Mythos. Häufig wird Ganymeds gewaltsamer Raub in der Kunst thematisiert. Hier konnten die Künstler den Kontrast zwischen roher Gewalt in Form des Adlers und hilfloser Unschuld in Gestalt des Knaben in mannigfaltigen Formvarianten ausdrücken. Robert Kraußes Darstellung zeigt einen späteren Zeitpunkt im Mythos: Ganymed ist bereits aufgestiegen, zum Mundschenk der Götter und Liebhaber Zeus' geworden. Aus dem Gewaltakt ist die freundschaftliche Umarmung geworden. Krauße nimmt mit dieser Darstellung den Geniekult wieder auf, der spätestens seit dem Sturm und Drang diese Geschichte bestimmt. Wenn Zeus in so vielen anderen Geschichten herabsteigt und sein Unheil auf der Erde anrichtet, bringt er hier einen Sterblichen in den Olymp. "Hinauf! Hinauf strebts." Ganymed ist ein Auserwählter der Götter, einer, der für Höheres bestimmt ist. So sahen und erträumten ihn Goethe, Thorvaldsen, George und viele andere. Die Zeichnung entstand im letzten Lehrjahr Kraußes bei Gustav Jäger an der Leipziger Akademie. Bei ihm hat er das Komponieren großformatiger biblischer Szenen gelernt. Dass er auch auf kleinem Format im Medium der Zeichnung zu überzeugenden Kompositionen fähig war, beweist dieses Blatt, das mit seiner ungewöhnlichen Idee und seiner brillanten Technik besticht.
