        On the Nature of the Motion We Call Heat" in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science 14, No. 91, August 1857, pp. 108-127

      RARE FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL PAPER WRAPS OF THE FIRST APPEARANCE IN ENGLISH OF CLAUSIUS' FOUNDATIONAL PAPER ON KINETIC THEORY. "Ãœber die Art der Bewegung, die wir Wärmenennen," Annalen der Physik, 100, 1857, pp. 497-507, the original German appeared in the same year as did the translation. The Dictionary of Scientific Biography writes at length on this paper: Clausius' first venture into the kinetic theory was ["Ueber die Art der Bewegung" in 1857] and his image of molecular motion went far beyond the "billiard ball" model of such previous writers as Kronig. He ascribed rotatory and vibratory, as well as translational, motion to the molecules, a complexity that led to an important conclusion. The conservation of translational kinetic energy in collision could no longer be assumed, because collisions might cause transformations of one form of motion into another. Quite obviously, Clausius argued, the idea of a constant equal velocity for all molecules must be untenable. "By supposing that translational velocities would vary among the molecules, Clausius offered an explanation for the evaporation of a liquid. Since only molecules with higher than average velocities possess sufficient kinetic energy to escape the attractive forces of the liquid temperature.In his discussion of the complexity of molecular motions, Clausius did not merely suggest that motions other than translational were a possibility; he demonstrated that such motions must exist by showing that translational motion alone could not account for all of the heat present in a gas." "This 1857 paper also marked another important beginning in physical theory, for it presented the first physical argument in support of Avogadro's hypothesis that equal volumes of gases at the same temperature and pressure contain equal numbers of molecules. Clausius argued that if it were assumed that all types of molecules possess the same translational energy at equal temperatures, then, since all gases have the same relationship between pressure, volume, and temperature and pressure, volume and temperature, they would necessarily contain equal numbers of molecules in equal volumes at the same temperature and pressure. Avogadro's hypothesis, therefore, found support in the mechanical theory of heat, independently of the usual chemical arguments (Dictionary of Scientific Biography, 3, pp. 306-307). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor and Francis., Volume 14., No. 91. August 1857. 4to (9 x 5.5 inches; 225 x 140mm). Complete. A near fine unopened copy in the original printed wrappers.

        God Against Slavery: And The Freedom And Duty Of The PeopleTo Rebuke It, As A Sin Against God. [Fine double association copy owned by Ameican poet John Greenleaf Whittier.]

      Joseph R. Ladd - New York 1857 - 5 1/4" x 7 1/2", 272 pp. Blind embossed edge ruled and floral decorated covers and spine with six compartments and seven faux bands; spine with title and author embossed. Cover lightly soiled with a few contemporary ink spots. Slight, even loss of fabric across to top and bottom of spine. Lightly worn through at corner tips. Binding straight, square and secure with hinges supple and without separation. Endpapers and ffeps with heavy glue bleed through; contemporary presentation inscription on front fep the only marking. Interior bright, clean and unmarked with a rare spot or two of foxing.***** The presentation inscription is in contemporary brown pen. It is from Salem, Massachusetts businessman and Abolitionist Richard P. Waters to John G.[Greenleaf] Whittier, Abolitionist poet and American household name as one of the Fireside Poets. The inscription states: "John G. Whittier, / With the compliments of / his friend, / Richard P. Waters / Aug. 7/58". Waters and Whittier had known each other since as early as May 1831 when they both attended the first meeting of the New England Anti-Slavery Convention. Both are listed in the record of the proceedings.(Garrison&Knapp, 1834) They were contemporaries, both born in 1807, and when they met success and fame for each was still to be fleshed out by future endeavor. It is reasonable their friendship began in this anti-slavery context. The presentation of this book twenty seven years later shows them still friends in the cause. An 1877 letter in the Hingham, Mass. Public Library from Boston businessman A.G. Browne to Hingham inventor Samuel Downer requests Whittier and Waters both be invited to a reunion of those of the anti-slavery cause; elderly but friends to the end. Though the cover has soiling and spots the book is tight and has clearly been treasured.*****NOT EX-LIBRARY [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Kyoka hyakunin isshu [alternative title: Kyoka Momochidori] [trans.: Crazy Verses or Light Verses. A Chorus of Birds]

      108 finely color-printed woodcut illus. (mostly two-thirds of a page). 55 folding leaves. 8vo, orig. speckled wrappers (a bit worn & somewhat rubbed, eleven folding leaves with some worming in gutter, extending into images, neatly repaired), orig. title label on upper cover, modern stitching. N.p.: 1857 or 1858. First edition of this finely illustrated work by Hiroshige. Each page is divided into three sections: the top contains two poems, the central panel has a poem and a poet's portrait, and the bottom panel is blank. "Among artists of the popular school who were uncultured, although not actually illiterate, Hiroshige was an exception because of his literary knowledge and tastes. He was a man of facile pen, for in the diaries are apt descriptions and occasional snaps of cynicism, all of them delightful because they are casual and informal. Had he pursued literature with the assiduity that he espoused art, he would undoubtedly have become a writer or poet. Although, as, with any phraseology or puns which are ephemeral, and therefore difficult to translate into English, the following poems from 'Kyoka Momo-chidori' will indicate his usual vein: Putting aside the moon and snow, How delightful it is to live roundly With a head more round Than a dumpling round and round!The verse alludes to the common saying, Hana yori dango, meaning literally 'A dumpling is better than a flower.' Of course it treats with both satisfaction and mockery the author's own shaven head. Utashige was Hiroshige's name as a humorous poet. He sometimes signed this name to Harimaze-ye (mixed prints of small size) or Sensha-fuda (visiting cards to shrines or temples) or illustrated books of lyrical drama. Also, some of the famous view-prints produced after 1839 bear the name of Utashige."-Prof. Yone Noguchi, "Life of Hiroshige," on-line. Very good copy. Some light dampstaining in lower portion of gutter. The worming does not touch any of the colored portraits. ? Brown, Block Printing & Book Illustration in Japan, p. 195.

Octavo, 24 original parts in original yellow printed wrappers, uncut and occasionally unopened. Housed in custom clamshell box. $1500.First edition in original parts, first issues, complete with all plates and advertisements, of Thackeray's tale of brethren divided during the American Revolution, the last book the author himself illustrated.Like his contemporary (and rival) Charles Dickens, Thackeray visited the United States (first in 1852-53, again in 1855-56); unlike his fellow novelist, however, Thackeray "had on the whole a happy time". He was willing, as Dickens had not been, to see the greatness of the country and recognize that the promise of the future atoned for the shortcomings of the present". Impressions of the second tour were worked into The Virginians," Thackeray's continuation of the family saga he began in The History of Henry Esmond (1852) (Baugh et al., 1358-59). Here, the author traces the fortunes of Henry Esmond's grandsons as the Revolutionary War divides them. With 48 engraved plates and several small in-text woodcuts by Thackeray""the last book he himself illustrated. First issue, with the first word on page 207, line 15 from the bottom (in No. 7) misprinted "actresses" (corrected in later editions to "ancestresses"); in part 12, chapters XLVII-XLVIII misnumbered XLVIII-XLIX. All ads present, including the tipped explanatory slip in part 20, regarding omitted plates; an additional advertising leaf present in No. 1. Anecdotal evidence suggests that the bibliographer's copy, which has a publisher's catalogue at rear, may be anomalous. Afterward published in book form (two clothbound volumes, dated 1858 and 1859). Van Duzer 232. No. 14 with previous owner's initials to front wrapper, pencil notations to rear of advertising slip. Nos. 21 and 22 with previous owner's signature to front wrapper.Closed tear to first plate in No. 6; modest foxing to the plates in Nos. 7, 8,16 and 17; minor loss to lower corners of plates in No. 23. Interiors with scattered light foxing and marginal soiling, light age-wear and soiling to wrappers; minor creasing to final few leaves of No. 13; small closed tear to front wrapper of No. 24, repaired.

There is a note fixed into the front endpaper of the album by its then owner, a F. A. Coley dated 1965-66. Possibly he may have been a staff member of the college or student in the final few years before the college closed in 1970 on the label he has written that the album was mentioned in accounts of the history of Lichfield Theological College, that account mentions that the albums leather binding was then covered in a black canvas material at that time there is very obvious signs of the removal of this black canvas to the endpapers, as the endpapers have some noticeable surface damage, with signs also to the leather at the spine ends, it is also obvious that a few of the photographs have been removed or have got lost over the years with a few noticeable gaps, however it still remains a fascinating primary source document of many of the students who passed through the college in the first twenty years of its existence, along with many autographs of those ministers, one photograph has been defaced with the head scratched out apart from the obvious signs of the removal of the black canvas from the leather binding, and the noted loss of some of the photographs, the album is in good general condition AN IMPORTANT AND INVALUABLE RECORD OF MANY OF THE STUDENTS WHO ATTENDED LICHFIELD THEOLOGICAL COLLEGE IN ITS FIRST TWENTY YEARS AND WERE ORDAINED THERE Please Note, The book is Large and Very Heavy over five kilos packed, shipping will be quite a bit more than the basic standard quote, please enquire for the rates to your country.

        Report of the United States and Mexican Boundary Survey, Made under the Direction of the Secretary of the Interior

      A.O.P. Nicholson, Washington, D.C. 1857 - EMORY, William H. (1811-1887) Report of the United States and Mexican Boundary Survey, Made under the Direction of the Secretary of the Interior Desired Senate Version with beautiful color plates of Native peoples and birds, historically significant scientific description of the people, geology, and animals of the United States/Mexico boundary area First Edition, 34th Congress, 1st session, Senate Executive Document 108, Four Parts in 3 Volumes. Correct total of plates is 346 including 25 hand colored bird plates, 12 colored views of native people, 3 large folding maps including the large folding colored map ¿Map Illustrating the General Geological Features of the Country West of the Mississippi River¿. The plates include: land views, geology, mammals, fish, birds, reptiles, botany, cacti and native people of the era. Because of the incredible size of the report and elaborate production only 3,000 sets were printed. (Note: This set is missing one bird plate (number 22), so 24 of 25 bird plates present) Quarto: 11.25 inches in height by 8.45 inches in width Volume 1: Washington: A.O.P. Nicholson, Printer, 1857 Volume 2: Washington, 1858. 2 vols. In 2 parts: Part 1: Botany of the Boundary, Part 2: Zoology of the Boundary Volume 3: Washington, 1859, Part 2: Zoology of the Boundary The Boundary Commission began this enormous challenge in 1848 and survived years of conflict among the various commissioners to Emory¿s successful conclusion of the work in 1857. Emory¿s contribution to the report is cartographic and he made several thousand observations that were incorporated into the maps. The report includes detailed scientific reports by James Hall, T.A. Conrad, Spencer F. Baird, Charles Girad, C.C. Parry, George Engelmann and others. The significance of this work is difficult to overstate. This is the first scientific exploration into the area and resulted in new and valuable information. ¿The narrative, the scientific reports, and the illustrations made Emory¿s production and overwhelming contribution of factual knowledge concerning the American Southwest¿ (Goetzmann) This set was previously owned by The British Legation, forerunner of The British Embassy, and bears their stamp on the third free page of each volume. Beautiful original full calf binding shows some minor wear. Double rule border on boards along with hash marks to edges. Very clean, wide margined edition in original bindings and endpapers.

[4], 337, [2]; [4], 323, [2] pp. Illus. with 22 engravings, 2 plates of music,and 1 large folding color map (70.5 x 31.6 cm.). "A very attractive and valuable work," (Bandelier: Notes on the Bibliography of Yucatan and Central America). Pierre Marie Arthur Morelet (1809-1892) was a French naturalist and expert on molluscs. In 1846 and 1847 he undertook a self financed expedition to Central America but with input from the Academie de Sciences in Paris where he published its results shortly after his return. It was only a decade later in 1857 that he could be convinced to publish a narrative that would appeal to a wider audience (it was translated in 1871 as 'Travels in Central America', absent the part on Cuba). Morelet "belongs to that group of writers whose approach to nature and its beings is still guided by a humanistically-inspired reverence for creation...." (Surveying the American Tropics: A Literary Geography). Morelet wrote in a entertaining style filled with "anecdotes of picaresque adventures whose literary effect is heightened by the frequent inclusion of dialogues with his uneducated but witty companions- his French servant and native guides [but] his text also offers serious and extremely well-written descriptions of the natural world he encounters, which betray his scholarly expertise." Rarely at auction; only two in the last half century. Palau 181582. Sabin 50591. Bandelier: p.13.
