        QUEBEC – SAGUENAY-LAC ST. JEAN REGION: PLAN OF THE RIVER SAGUENAY, CANADA EAST.

      Lithograph, mounted upon original limp linen (Very Good, some minor wear along original folds, some light areas of toning, overall a fine example), 96 x 59 cm (38 x 23 inches). - Toronto: MacLear & Co. Lithographers, 1857. The first comprehensive printed scientific survey of the Quebec’s Saguenay-Lac St. Jean Region, taken during a time of transformative change, commissioned by Canada’s Crown Land Office, printed in Toronto in 1857. - This fine, large format map represents the first comprehensive modern survey of Quebec’s Saguenay-Lac St. Jean Region, taken at the beginning of a period of explosive growth and development that transformed the region from a peripheral backwater into a major industrial and natural resource powerhouse. The map was commissioned by Canada’s Crown Land Office to serve as blueprint for the development of the region, and was composed by the draftsman Joseph-François Bouchette, grandson of Quebec’s late legendary survey general, Joseph Bouchette, predicated on the latest trigonometric surveys. The map embraces the large, round expanse of Lac St. Jean, and the massive Saguenay River, which flows though a great gorge, before entering the St. Lawrence Estuary. Tadoussac, the village at the mouth of the Saguenay (founded 1600), is today famous for its beluga whales, but is also significant as the oldest permanently occupied European settlement in North America north of St. Augustine and west of Santa Fe. The map accurately details the region’s topographical features and depicts the newly established townships in advance of waves of settlement, in addition to newly-built roads. Significantly, it depicts Chicoutimi (incorporated 1845), which would grow to become one of Quebec’s major regional centres. Historical Context: The Development of the Saguenay-St. Jean Region. The Saguenay-Lac St. Jean region, home to Tadoussac, is the oldest area of Canada to have been continuously settled by Europeans; however, all the way up through the first half of the 19th Century, it was only very sparsely populated. Tadoussac was a small fishing village and trading post, while the hinterland was inhabited by small number of Montagnais natives and French Canadian trappers. While the shores of the Saguenay and Lac St. Jean had been mapped to a high standard by surveyors working under Samuel Holland, in 1768-9, little additional mapping had been done in the succeeding three generations. During the 1850s, the government of the united Canadas (administering modern Quebec and Ontario), decided to spur the mass European settlement and economic development of the outer regions of the provinces, such as the Saguenay. First, the Windsor-Quebec Corridor had become highly developed, such that there was no more free land available for new settlers. Second, the Crown was eager to exploit the resources in the outer regions, which in the Saguenay-Lac St. Jean consisted of arable farmland, fish, timber, and minerals. The Crown initiated many legislative and taxation changes to enable and incentivize settlement of Saguenay-Las St. Jean. Roads were built from the St. Lawrence, though the wilderness, to the upper Saguenay. Chicoutimi, officially incorporated in 1845, was made the regional center, receiving a large injection of public investment and improved infrastructure in anticipation of dramatic growth. Lac St. Jean, in spite of its harsh winters, was home to fertile farmland that could yield productive crops. New townships were charted, in anticipation of settlers. However, the exiting mapping was inadequate to continue road building projects and to lay-out cadastral grants. Canada’s Crown Land Office sent several teams of skilled surveyors to trigonometrically map the region. In Quebec City, Joseph-Francois Bouchette reduced and refined the resulting manuscripts into the present map, which was lithographed in Toronto by MacLear & Co. The present map was created under the watchful eye of Joseph Édouard Cauchon (1816-1885), who served as the Commissioner of Crown Lands of the united Canadas, from 1855 to 1857. This office was a senior cabinet position, overseeing the government’s largest department, in charge of spea

        QUEBEC – GASPÉSIE: MAP OF THE COUNTIES OF GASPE AND BONAVENTURE, EXHIBITING THE LANDS ADJUDICATED, UNSERVEYED, CLERGY RESERVES, &C. &C. &C.

      Lithograph, mounted upon original limp linen (Very Good, some minor wear along original folds, some light areas of toning, overall a fine example), 68 x 121 cm (26.5 x 47.5 inches). - Toronto: MacLear & Co. Lithographers, 1857. An important, gargantuan map of Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula, predicated on the surveys of the Bahamian-born cartographer Gerald George Dunlevie, published in Toronto for the Canada’s Crown Land Office, serving as the official blueprint for the administration of the region during a generation of transformative change. - This excellent map depicts Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula, known in French as ‘La Gaspésie’, a large landmass that juts into the Gulf of St. Lawrence, marking the southern side of the mouth of the St. Lawrence estuary. The map is predicated on surveys conducted in the early 1850s by Gerald George Dunlevie, a Bahamian-born surveyor, working on behalf of Canada’s Crown Land Office. While the most advanced survey of the region to date, as noted upon the map, Dunlevie comprehensively surveyed only the populated southern and eastern parts of the peninsula. Here he conduced precise trigonometric surveys of each of the settled townships (noting the land areas of each), while delineating major reads, the locations of township centers, as well as the lands of the ‘Clergy Reserves’ (which will be discussed later). The Gaspésie’s vast interior, which was almost totally void of European settlement, is left unsurveyed, marked in parts as ‘This Tract yet unexplored’; as is the sparely populated north shore, which is noted as being ‘Occupied, and Proposed to be surveyed’. Importantly, however, in addition to the settled townships, Dunlevie surveyed the Kempt Road, which ran across the neck of the peninsula, and provided the only landward link between New Brunswick and Quebec City. During the 1850s, the government of the united Canadas (Ontario and Quebec) was determined to spur widespread settlement and economic development in areas outside of the densely populated Windsor-Quebec City Corridor, such as the Gaspésie. This entailed a number of legislative and taxation changes to incentivize settlement. Dunlevie was dispatched to the Gaspésie by the Crown Land Office to survey the more promising areas for further development. The present map was published for the Crown Land Office, having been carefully reduced from Dunlevie’s original manuscript, under the supervision of its commissioner, Joseph Édouard Cauchon. It was published in Toronto, in 1857, by the firm of MacLear & Co. Lithographers. Historical Context: Transformative Change in Quebec’s Gaspésie - The Gaspésie region is an immense peninsula that had long been home to European settlers along it southern and eastern shores, but was scarcely populated in its interior, while is northern shore was a region of fleeting development. While a very small number of European fisherman had inhabited Gaspésie’s shorelines during French colonial times, the period following the Seven Years’ War and the American Revolution saw waves of settlement of Acadians (exiled from the Maritimes), as well as English-speaking settlers from the Thirteen American colonies. The coasts of the region, particularly the areas of its future southern and eastern townships were first surveyed in 1765, to a very high standard, by teams working under Samuel Holland. Between that time and 1850s, the Crown had simply utilized the Holland template, only adding updated details, as opposed to commissioning new general surveys. The most prominent map from this long era was Joseph Bouchette’s Plan of the District of Gaspe (London: William Faden, 1815). By the 1850s, the government of the united Canadas decided to spur the mass settlement and economic development of the outer regions of the provinces, such as the Gaspésie. First, the Windsor-Quebec Corridor had become highly developed, such that there was no free land available for new settlers. Second, the Crown was eager to exploit the resources in the outer regions, which in the Gaspésie consisted of fish, timer, and minerals. Third, the Crown wanted to ensure that all coastal regions and areas near the U.S. border were settled, i

        QUEBEC: MAP OF LOWER CANADA SHEWING THE PROPOSED LAND AGENCIES AND THE TOWNSHIPS DISTINCT FROM THE SEIGNIORIES.

      Lithograph, mounted upon original limp linen (Very Good, some minor wear along original folds, some light areas of toning, overall a fine example), 53 x 148 cm (21 x 58 inches). - Montreal: George Matthews, 1857. A historically important, gargantuan map of Canada East (Quebec), commissioned by the Canada’s Crown Land Office as a strategic blueprint to manage the government’s numerous infrastructure, settlement and economic development. - This massive map of Quebec was commissioned by Canada’s Crown Land Office, and is predicated on the latest scientific surveys. Importantly, it was made to serve as strategic overview for administrators managing intense and transformative economic, settlement and infrastructure development. The map embraces all of the province of Canada East (formerly Lower Canada; from 1867, Quebec), dividing the territory into counties and townships. It shows that the old areas of settlement in the Montreal –Quebec City Corridor were intensely developed, while areas inland and the outer regions (such as Saguenay-Lac St. Jean, the Ottawa Valley, and the Gaspésie) were in incipient states of development. To mange the sale of lands, the Crown Land Office was in the process of setting up land agency districts, the boundaries of which are demarcated on the map. Of particular note, the map features both the already realized and projected lines of the Grand Trunk Railway (GTR). Founded in 1852, by 1856, it connected Montreal with Toronto, and had expanded as far east as St. Thomas, on the lower St. Lawrence, with branches to the south connecting Quebec with New England. The railway had a transformative impact upon the development of Canada and was one of the factors that enabled Canadian Confederation a decade after the present map was issued. Historical Context: Quebec on the Eve of Confederation - By the 1850s, the government of the united Canadas (administering modern Quebec and Ontario), had to mange both major opportunities and major challenges. The long settled areas in the Montreal-Quebec City Corridor, hugging the St. Lawrence were experiencing rapid economic development, spurred in part by the growth of the railways. At the same time, a high birth rate and mass inward migration ensured that the Crown had long run out of free land for new homesteads. The Crown thus decided to develop the province’s outer regions; however, this required mass investment in infrastructure and administrative systems. Beyond providing new, civilised living space, the expansion into the outer regions would unlock vast wealth in agriculture, fish, timber, and minerals. The Crown initiated many legislative and taxation changes to enable and incentivize settlement. Canada’s Crown Land Office sent several different teams of skilled surveyors to trigonometrically map the province’s various regions. In Quebec City, the draftsman Joseph-Francois Bouchette, the grandson of the legendary late Surveyor-General of Quebec, Joseph Bouchette, reduced and refined the resulting manuscripts into the present map, which was published in Montreal by George Matthews. The present map was created under the watchful eye of Joseph Édouard Cauchon (1816-1885), who served as the Commissioner of Crown Lands of the united Canadas, from 1855 to 1857. This office was a senior cabinet position, overseeing the government’s largest department, in charge of spearheading all designs to manage lands and infrastructure. The present map was published as part of a series of 8 large-format ground-breaking maps of Canadian regions published to accompany the Appendix to Cauchon’s Report of the Commissioner of Crown Lands. Part II (Toronto, 1857). The maps included (short title): 1. Lower Canada (the present map); 2. Upper Canada; 3. Gaspe and Bonaventure; 4. The Saguenay; 5. The St. Maurice Territory; 6. The Ottawa & Huron Country; 7. The North Shore of Lake Huron; and 8. Canada, Indian Territories, and Hudson’s Bay.

        ONTARIO: MAP OF UPPER CANADA SHEWING THE PROPOSED LAND AGENCY DIVISIONS.

      Lithograph, mounted upon original limp linen (Very Good, some minor wear along original folds, a couple of small holes at fold vertices, some light areas of toning, overall a fine example), 89 x 108 cm (35 x 42.5 inches). - Montreal: George Matthews, 1857. A historically important, large format map of Canada West (Ontario), commissioned by Canada’s Crown Land Office as a strategic blueprint to manage the government’s multiple infrastructure, settlement and economic development projects. - This large format map of Ontario was commissioned by Canada’s Crown Land Office, and is predicated upon the latest scientific surveys. Importantly, it was made to serve as a strategic overview for administrators overseeing transformative projects of economic, settlement and infrastructure development. The map embraces all of what is now known as Southern Ontario and the Near North regions, up to just beyond Sault Ste. Marie and Lake Nipissing. It shows that the southern areas were intensely developed, divided into counties and townships, while the areas beyond (the Ottawa & Huron Country and the North of Huron region) were in incipient states of development. To manage the sale of lands, the Crown Land Office was in the process of setting up land agency districts, the boundaries of which are demarcated on the map. Critically, the map shows the new roads that were being built into the Near North, the lifelines for development. Historical Context: Ontario on the Eve of Confederation - By the 1850s, the government of the united Canadas (administering modern Quebec and Ontario), had to manage both major opportunities and major challenges. The long settled areas in the Windsor-Toronto-St. Lawrence Corridor were experiencing rapid economic development. At the same time, a high birth rate and mass inward migration ensured that the Crown had long run out of free land for new homesteads. The Crown decided to develop the outer regions of the province; however, this required mass investment in infrastructure and administrative systems.

While the maps were sometimes bound into a volume, the marquis examples were mounted upon limp linen and folded separately within a portfolio (such as the present example). The present map remained highly influential and served as the basis for the administrative management of Ontario during the critical Pre- and Early Confederation periods.

        Log of Barque Washington Allston from Portland for Calcutta via Buenos Aires by Arthur Goodwin. 1857-1858

      Folio. Unpaginated (about 200 pp. manuscript entries). This is a complete log of the voyage, from departing Portland January 20, 1857 to approaching Boston January 22, 1858. Her captain was Edward Graves. They arrived in Calcutta July 10 and departed Sept. 12. The 10 page port log is quite detailed regarding cargo, ship repairs, activities of coolies, etc. I can find no mention of this vessel in Fairburn, but the Marine Intelligence newspaper for Jan. 23, 1858 notes her arrival in Boston on Jan. 22. In the back of the book Goodwin has kept some astronomical notes - the observed distance of the moon from Jupiter and Venus at various times between June and October 1857 - as well as an abstract log of the bark's passage. Quite possibly Goodwin was a carpenter since, along with an abstract log of the voyage and numerical signals for eighteen messages -"How Many Days Out?" etc., he also appended a list of hand tools carried aboard the ship. Binding broken, text clean and legible.

        Missionary travels and researches in South Africa; including a sketch of sixteen years residence in the interior of Africa, and a journey from the Cape of Good Hope to Loanda on the West Coast; thence across the continent, down the River Zambesi, to the eastern ocean.

      London Murray 1857 - First edition. 8vo., ix, 687pp., folding wood-engraved frontispiece, engraved portrait, 2 folding maps (1 in pocket at end), 22 full-page wood-engraved plates, folding plan, illustrations in the text, light foxing to plates, contemporary calf gilt, covers ruled in gilt, spine richly gilt in compartments, red morocco lettering piece, rebacked preserving spine, an attractive example. "Perhaps the most famous of all African exploration books, this recounts Dr. Livingstone's travels through South Africa, with the discovery of Lake Ngami, while accompanied by his wife and William Cotton Oswell. Oswell and the author continued their journey, discovering the Zambesi River, and, eventually, the Victoria Falls." - Czech. In the period between 1849 and 1856, his explorations took him to Lake Ngami across the Kalahari Desert, to the Zambezi River, and from there west to the Atlantic Ocean at Loanda (today's Sao Paulo de Loanda, Angola). He turned down a chance to return to England, but entrusted his reports, maps, and letters for transport. The ship went down with all hands except one, and all of Livingstone's papers were lost, forcing him to re-create everything. He followed his track back to Linyanti (in Botswana) and then decided to assess the possibilities of the Zambezi as a highway into the heart of Africa by following it to the Indian Ocean. He reached Victoria Falls in 1855, confirming what he had heard from natives for many years. "Scenes so lovely must have been gazed upon by angels in their flight," he wrote. It was the only site in Africa that he named with English words. Livingstone reached Quilimane on the coast of Mozambique on 20 May 1856, but he got there by cutting across a loop of the Zambezi to Tete, inadvertently missing the Kebrabasa Rapids, a drop of about six hundred feet. Hence, he was unaware that the river was not navigable when he arrived in London at the end of the year to promote its potential to the British government. In the meantime, the LMS had informed him that his expeditions were not the kind of gospel work it expected of him, and he resigned the next year. In England, he was feted as a national hero. The present book, written in six months, became an immediate best-seller, with seven editions published in rapid succession." (Delaney). Czech p97; Mendelssohn I, 908-910; PMM 341.

        A comprehensive collection of Parliamentary Papers pertaining to the explorations in South Australia of Benjamin Herschel Babbage (1815-1878), 'engineer, scientist and explorer ... son of Charles Babbage, Cambridge professor of mathematics [and the first computer pioneer], and his wife Georgina, sister of W.W. Whitmore, a founder of South Australia.... In 1856 Babbage was sent north to search for gold as far as the Flinders Ranges. He found none, but discovered the MacDonnell River, Blanchewater and Mount Hopeful

      He was the first to dispel the current idea of the impassability of the Lake Torrens 'horseshoe'... [In late 1857 he was] appointed leader of a northern expedition. Babbage left in February 1858 to explore the country between Lakes Torrens and Gairdner, and further to the north and west. His concept of exploration was based on thorough survey, mapping and examination of the country, ideals with which Francis Dutton, commissioner of crown lands, agreed in his instructions and early correspondence. With cumbrous and ingenious equipment Babbage carried out the first part, hampered by bad terrain and lack of water. But he had no sense of urgency and was thus completely out of tune with the current concept of opening up new country for quick exploitation. His slowness led to public and parliamentary clamour, to which Dutton later succumbed and sent Peter Egerton Warburton to supersede him. Meanwhile Babbage had moved north from the Elizabeth River, discovered Hermit Hill and delineated the western shores of Lake Eyre South. There Warburton relieved him on 5 November. Based on his experiences of 1856, Babbage also believed in a gap in the "horseshoe" and at Hermit Hill confirmed his belief. He had actually crossed the gap, but Warburton was the first to traverse it completely. On grounds of unfair treatment Babbage successfully petitioned for a parliamentary inquiry. In 1858-59 voluminous evidence was taken but no report issued.... [He then withdrew from public life until 1866.] In 1870-72 Charles Todd employed Babbage as an assistant in planning and plotting the Overland Telegraph line, and as a supervisor of contractors.... His achievements as an explorer were notable but the accompanying controversy tended unduly to overshadow them and his attainments in other fields' (Australian Dictionary of Biography). Indeed, 'the reports from the expedition were ... a significant prelude to Stuart's successful crossing of the continent from south to north' in 1861-62 (The Davidson Collection, Third Sale, July 2007, lot 565). This lengthy preamble should help explain the connection between the following eleven foolscap folio Parliamentary Papers relating to Benjamin Babbage, published in Adelaide by the Government Printer in 1858 and 1859. (1) Northern Exploration.... Reports, &c, of Explorations into the Interior, by Messrs. Babbage, Warburton, Geharty, and Parry. SAPP25/1858; 51 pages plus 2 large folding maps. (2) Northern Exploration.... Further Correspondence respecting the Exploring Party under Command of Mr. Babbage. SAPP25*/1858; 6 pages. (3) Cost of Northern Exploration. SAPP36/1858; 1 page. (4) Northern Exploration.... Correspondence between the Hon. the Commissioner of Crown Lands and the Commissioner of Police [Major Peter Egerton Warburton], relative to the Progress of the Northern Exploring Parties. SAPP127/1858; 4 pages. (5) Northern Explorations.... Reports from Messrs Babbage and Warburton, and Police-Trooper Burtt, on Exploration into the North and North-Western Interior of South Australia. SAPP151/1858; 19 pages plus 3 maps (2 folding). (6) Petition of B.H. Babbage. SAPP154/1858; 1 page. (7) Northern Exploration.... Letter, with Enclosure, from Major Warburton, relative to Exploration in the Neighborhood of Lake Torrens. SAPP159/1858; 3 pages. (8) Northern Exploration.... Correspondence between the Honourable the Commissioner of Crown Lands and Major Warburton, relative to the Northern Exploration. SAPP166/1858; 6 pages. (9) Cost of Northern Explorations. SAPP20/1859; 1 page. (10) Minutes of Evidence taken by the Select Committee appointed to enquire into and report on the Petition of B.H. Babbage. SAPP21/1859; 63 pages. (11) Northern Exploration.... Correspondence between the Government and Messrs. Babbage and Warburton, relative to Northern Explorations. SAPP37/1859; 2 pages. As often with these Parliamentary Papers relating to expeditions, the maps are a constant source of pleasure. The best one in this group is one of the large folding maps in SAPP25/1858: 'Sketch of the Country North of the Gawler Ranges' (324 x 485 mm). It is a lithographed map printed in two colours, in an unusual manner (blue on the left, red on the right): 'The portion in Blue is taken from a Plan supplied by Major Warburton. The portion in Red is taken from a Drawing supplied by Mr Babbage'. Recently bound in two matching volumes (according to year of publication) in cloth lettered in gilt on the front cover; all Parliamentary Papers (printed on blue stock) are in uniformly fine condition. South Australian Parliamentary Papers Numbers 25, 25*, 36, 127, 151, 154, 159 and 166 of 1858 [and] 20, 21 and 37 of 1859 (McLaren 4981-4983, 16481, 4984-4986, 16485, 16486, 4987, and 4988 respectively). Items 16481, 16485 and 16486 are listed under Warburton only, and not Babbage as well. We suggest they should be there; we have called them 4983A, 4986A and 4986B in our annotated copy of the bibliography. Offered together with a related item, Victorian Parliamentary Paper Number 1 of 1859, 'Report on the Plants collected during Mr Babbage's Expedition into the North-Western Interior of South Australia in 1858' by Ferdinand Mueller (foolscap folio, 21 pages, stab-sewn and uncut as issued; a fine copy, albeit with minor infill to the bottom corner of the first two leaves). McLaren 13749. The complete suite of Parliamentary Papers relating to Babbage's 1858 Northern Exploring Expedition and its aftermath is very rare; for example, the exceptional collection of Rodney Davidson contained only six of the above twelve items (which sold in four lots to the one buyer for $5360 in 2007).

        Béranger.

      - Lithographie mit rosa Tonplatte gedruckt, 1857, auf festem Velin. Darstellungsgröße 28,4:36 cm, Blattgröße 38,9:53 cm. Mit der Adresse: Imp. Ph. Ham à Bruxelles. – In den Rändern leicht knitterfaltig und angeschmutzt, rechte untere Ecke fehlt. Provenienz: Sammlung H. Stinnes, Köln, Lugt 1376a. Literatur: Mascha 160, ohne rückseitigen Text. Erschienen in Uylenspiegel, Nr. 26, vom 26. Juli 1857; Ramiro 113. Ohne den Text auf der Rückseite ist das Blatt selten! Eine alte Frau liest einer Gesellschaft von zwei jungen Damen und drei jungen Herren (der eine im Profil nach rechts zeigt Rops selbst) Lieder von Béranger vor. Interessante Beleuchtung durch das Kaminfeuer. Im Hintergrund rechts taucht die Gestalt Bérangers hervor. Unter der Darstellung befindet sich folgende Textzeile: «Parlez-nous de lui, grand’ mère; - Parlez-nous de lui ». Der französische Lyriker und Liedtexter Pierre-Jean de Béranger, geb. 1780 in Paris, war am 16. Juli 1857 - ebenfalls in Paris - verstorben. Dies war wohl der Anlaß für das oben beschriebene Blatt. Rops war einer der bedeutendsten Graphiker und Illustratoren seiner Zeit. Nach einer Erziehung durch Privatlehrer ging der Sohn eines Textilfabrikanten an das Jesuitenkolleg in Namur. 1849 wurde er vom Kolleg verwiesen, in diesem Jahr verstarb sein Vater, ging dann an das Königliche Athenäum in Namur, schrieb sich jedoch auch gegen den Willen seines später verhaßten Vormunds an der dortigen Académie des Beaux-Arts ein, wo er Aktkurse besuchte. 1853 setzte er sein Studium an der Universität in Brüssel fort, wo er zudem das freie Atelier Saint-Luc besuchte. Ab 1856 gründete er zusammen mit seinem Freund Ch. de Coster (1827-1879) die Zeitschrift L'Uylenspiegel, journal des débats littéraires et artistiques, für die er bis 1857 Illustrationen schuf, meist Karikaturen. Nach der Verheiratung mit Charlotte Polet de Faveaux, der Tochter des Gerichtspräsidenten von Namur, lebte er abwechselnd in seiner Geburtsstadt und im Sommer auf Schloß Thozée bei Mettet, wo ihn auch zahlreiche Künstlerfreunde besuchten; später kamen noch Paris und Brüssel als ständig wechselnde Aufenthaltsorte hinzu. 1868 war er Mitbegründer der „Société des Beaux Arts". 1869 verliebte er sich in die Schwestern Léontine und Aurélie Duluc, zwei junge Modeschöpferinnen, mit denen er ab 1874 in Paris zusammenlebte und auch Kinder hatte. Reisen unternahm er in den nächsten Jahren an die Nordsee, nach Skandinavien, Ungarn und Spanien, in die Vereinigten Staaten und nach Nordafrika. 1888 wurde ihm der Orden der französischen Ehrenlegion verliehen. Rops hatte vor allem großen Erfolg als Illustrator, zuerst mit den Werken de Costers, dann arbeitete er auch für Baudelaire, mit dem er sich befreundete, sowie für J. Barbey d Aurevilly, St. Mallarmé, P. Verlaine, J. Péladan u.a.

        Untersuchungen über die Textur des Rückenmarks und die Entwicklung seiner Formelemente.

      - Leipzig, Druck und Verlag von Breitkopf und Haertel, 1857, 4°, VIII, 121, (1) pp., mit 5 lith. Tafeln mit 11 feinenen Abbildungen, feiner Pappband im Stil d.Zt; etwas gebräunt. Selten - Erstdruck dieser wichtigen Monographie von Friedrich Heinrich Bidder (1810-1894) & Carl Wilhelm Kupffer (1829-1902). "1844 beschreibt HANNOVER die Ausläufer der Ependymzellen; er hält sie aber der damaligen Anschauung entsprechend für Nervenzellfortsätze. Noch 1846 gliedert STILLING in seiner ausführlichen, für die Kenntnis der nervösen Zentralorgane grundlegenden Arbeit das Gewebe derselben in Nervenkörper und Fasern. Er unterscheidet "große und mittelgroße Spinalkörper" und als dritte Gattung eine feinkörnige Masse, die die "Ur- und Grundmasse der grauen Substanz" bildet. Die "Nervenkörper" der Substantia gelatinosa des Rückenmarks sind "kugelförmig ohne Fortsätze" (STILLING, 1843a, b, 1846). Außerdem besteht diese Substanz aus "grauen Nervenröhren", deren "longitudinale Anordnung" ihr das glänzende gallertartige Aussehen verleiht. Letzten Endes aber stellt STILLING fest, daß alle Elemente der Zentralorgane einschließlich der Epithelzellen des Zentralkanals "nervös" seien. In den folgenden Jahrzehnten wurde die STILLINGsche Lehre erst allmählich durch die Entdeckung VIRCHOWS überwunden, insbesondere dadurch, daß verschiedene Forscher neue Beweise für das Vorhandensein einer nicht erregungsleitenden Zwischensubstanz im Zentralnervensystem erbrachten. Vor allem BIDDER und seine Schüler widmeten sich dieser Aufgabe. OWSJANNIKOW (1854) untersuchte das Rückenmark der Fische, METZLER (1855) das Vogelrückenmark; schließlich nahmen BIDDER und v. KUPFFER (1857) in einer gemeinsamen Untersuchung über das Rückenmark der Säuger zum Problem der "Zwischensubstanz" des Zentralnervensystems Stellung. Von diesen Autoren wurde die Neuroglia als eine "indifferente, stützende und ausfüllende Substanz" beschrieben, die neben den bindegewebigen Fortsätzen der Pia mater existiert; sie enthält Fasern, die nicht mit den Nervenfasern Zusammenhängen, kleine Zellen mit wenigen Fortsätzen und eine formlose Masse "gleich einem Schwamm", in die die hüllenlosen Nervenfasern eingelagert sind. VON KOELLIKER hatte schon 1855 als erster im Gegensatz zu VIRCHOW gefunden, daß die Zellen der Zwischensubstanz, die er als "sternförmige Bindegewebskörperchen" bezeichnete, Fortsätze besitzen (vgl. v. KOELLIKER. 1896, S. 147). Aus diesem Befund, der von BIDDER und v. KUPFFER bestätigt wurde, ergaben sich neue Fragestellungen, die sich auf die Unterschiede zwischen den Zellen des --------nervösen Gewebes und des "echten" Bindegewebes einerseits und den sternförmigen Zellen der Zwischensubstanz andererseits erstreckten, weiterhin auf die Beziehungen dieser Zellen zueinander und zu den schon von VIRCHOW beschriebenen Fasern. Wie schwierig mit der damaligen Methodik die Unterscheidung zwischen dem erregungsleitenden Gewebe und der Zwischensubstanz war, geht deutlich aus den Befunden BIDDERS und v. KUPFFERS (S.O.) hervor. Diese zählten im Rückenmark zur Neuroglia alle Zellen der Hinterhörner, die graue Commissur und alle Zellen der Substantia gelatinosa; außerdem wiesen sie das Vorkommen der Glia auch in der weißen Substanz "zwischen den Nervenröhren" nach. Die extrem gegensätzlichen Anschauungen von STILLING einerseits und von BIDDER und v. KUPFFER andererseits wurden von v. KOELLIKER, der nun den VIRCHOWschen Begriff Neuroglia aufgriff und einführte, korrigiert. Er konnte in seiner Gewebelehre 1867 berichtigend feststellen, daß im menschlichen Rückenmark die graue Substanz der Hinterhörner "echte Nervenzellen" und die graue Commissur Nervenfasern enthält. Er wies 1867 weiterhin nach, daß die spezifische Zwischensubstanz in der "weißen Oberfläche" des verlängerten Markes und der Brücke vorkommt, ähnlich wie SCHULTZE (1859), der ihr Vorhandensein in der Rinde des Großhirns und in der Retina bestätigte.

        Meilenstein der äthiopischen Philologie

      DILLMANN, August: Grammatik der äthiopischen Sprache. Mit sechs, davon fünf gefalteten Tafeln. Leipzig: Weigel 1857. 8°. XXIV, 435, [1] Seiten. Dunkelbrauner Halbledereinband der Zeit mit dekorativem, gold- und blindgeprägtem Lederrücken und mehrfarbig marmorierten Vorsitzen. Erste Ausgabe dieser erst zweiten Grammatik des Ge'ez, der seit dem 3. Jh. dokumentierten und bis ins 19. Jahrhundert dominierenden altäthiopischen Sprache. Bedeutung erlangte Ge'ez vor allem durch die zwischen dem 5. und 7. Jh. in diese Sprache angestellte Bibelübersetzung, der daraus resultierenden Verwendung als liturgische Sprache der orthodoxen äthiopischen Kirche, und durch seine Verwendung als klassische Literatursprache zwischen dem 13. und 17. Jh. Der Orientalist und Theologe August Dillmann (1823-1894) gilt als Erneuerer der äthiopischen Philologie. Er verfasste neben der vorliegenden, erfolgreichen und mehrmals aufgelegten, übersetzten und nachgedruckten Grammatik (2. Aufl. 1899, Nachdruck 1959; engl. Ausgabe 1907, Nachdruck 1974) u. a. auch ein Wörterbuch (1862-65) und eine Chrestomathie (1866) des Ge'ez. Lederrücken etwas, an den Kapitale und Gelenken stärker berieben, Einband insgesamt an den Ecken und Kanten berieben und stellenweise etwas bestoßen, Titelblatt mit mehreren (kleinen) Besitzerstempeln (des slowak. Orientalisten Kutlikov) und Besitzervermerk, Exemplar mehrfach bestempelt, sonst sauberes, solide gebundenes Exemplar dieser im Handel äußerst seltenen Erstausgabe des für die Äthiopistik grundlegenden grammatikalischen Handbuchs. ADB 47, 699 ff.; NDB III, 721 f.; RE IV, 662 ff.; LThK III, 393; nicht bei Zaunmüller, 2.

C. Loudon), Elvaston Castle (famous for its splendid arboretum), Shrublands Hall (Italianate terraces by Barry), Woburn Abbey (a Repton masterpiece), Holkham House (William Kent-Capability Brown, with extensive 1850's additions including a parterrre with the Earl of Leicester's initials in box, and a pair of flower beds in a Louis XIV pattern accompanying a fountain representing St. George and the dragon), Castle Howard ( whose modern additions included a new parterre using yew hedges to frame the lawns and the Triton Fountain taken from the Great Exhibition), and many others.

        1857 1st ed David Livingstone Missionary Travels Illustrated AFRICA Map Angola

      London : Murray, 1857. First edition. - 1857 1st ed David Livingstone Missionary Travels Illustrated AFRICA Map Angola “If you have men who will only come if they know there is a good road, I don't want them. I want men who will come if there is no road at all.” David Livingstone An incredibly rare first edition of David Livingstone’s “Missionary Travels.” In this book Livingstone describes his travel and work as a missionary to the indigenous people in Central and South Africa. Through the mid-19th-century, South Africa was complete unknown to Europeans so Livingstone’s mission brought light to more than just spreading the gospel. The work deals with customs, languages, animal and plant biology, geology, topography, and mineralogy. “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” (PMM 341). Livingstone discovered the Zambesi River and Victoria Falls (which he named), parts of Angola, and Mozambique; met with and observed the Hottentot. This book includes the large folding map of Southern Africa, with his journey outlined. He was also able to discover some of the most devastating instances of slave trade, which propelled his abolitionist ideals.
