        Memoire sur la fermentation appelee lactique

      Paris: Masson, 1858. Biological Basis of Fermentation Pasteur, Louis (1822-95). Memoire sur la fermentation appelee lactique. In: Annales de chimie et de physique, 3rd series, 52 (1858): 404-18. Whole volume, 8vo. 512pp. Plate. Paris: Victor Masson, 1858. 211 x 132 mm. Quarter sheep, marbled boards, a bit rubbed. Minor foxing, but very good. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 2472. Horblit, One Hundred Books Famous in Science 82 (abridged version). Pasteur's first paper on fermentation contains most of the central theoretical and methodological features of his biological theory of fermentation, in particular the concept of fermentation as a product of the growth of yeast, the idea that air is source of microscopic yeasts and other microorganisms, and the notion of specificity, in which each fermentation could be traced to a specific microorganism. Pasteur was able to isolate, observe and propagate the yeast responsible for lactic fermentation, and to demonstrate that its activity was dependent on its environment. Pasteur's concept of fermentation as a biological process challenged the chemical theory of fermentation put forth by Liebig, which Pasteur was able to disprove with his experiments on alcoholic and acetic fermentation. Pasteur's paper underwent roughly simultaneous publication in the Annales de chimie et de physique and the Memoires de la Societe des Sciences, de l'Agriculture et des Arts de Lille, 2nd series, 5 (1858). A much-abridged version appeared in the Comptes rendus de l'Academie des Sciences (Paris), 45 (1857). Brock, pp. 27-30. Dibner, Heralds of Science 198 (abridged version). Norman 1653 (offprint).

        Seiyiryakuron. 4 vols

      Tokyo, 1858. Hobson, Benjamin (1816-73). Seiyi-ryakuron [First lines of the practice of surgery in the west]. 4 vols. In Chinese with Japanese reading symbols. Tokyo: Yorozua Hyoshiro, 1858. Vol. I: 60 folded leaves plus 1 single leaf; text illustrations. Vol. II: 49 folded leaves; text illustrations. Vol. III: 62 folded leaves; text illustrations. Vol. IV: 22 folded leaves; text illustrations. 255 x 173 mm. Yellow embossed paper wrappers, printed labels (a little worn). Boxed. The last volume has a table of contents in English and Chinese. First Japanese Edition. Benjamin Hobson was a British missionary doctor who spent two decades (1839-59) in China. He founded hospitals in Hong Kong, Guangdong and Shanghai; trained local physicians in Western medical techniques; and wrote four medical textbooks in Chinese based on European sources. "His works were highly regarded, and, in the words of one observer, served to 'transform China's native doctors into an intelligent, progressive, and scientific medical profession by furnishing them with a scientific background' . . . His texts were highly regarded by contemporary medical missionaries and they had a far-reaching impact on the introduction of Western medicine, not only in China but also in Japan" (Wong, p. 91). The second of these texts was the First Lines of the Practice of Surgery in the West (Xiyi luelun, 1857); the work was published in Japan one year later. "This treatise, besides showing the benefit of surgical education, sets forth the entire subject of surgical practice . . . Perhaps this work may be regarded as the best of the [Hobson] series, as it is certainly the most adapted for direct utility" (Wong and Wu, p. 365, note 310). The work contains hundreds of illustrations, and includes a list of medical prescriptions. At the end of the last volume is a table of contents and list of drug names in English and Chinese.The Japanese versions of Hobson's works appeared during a critical time in Japanese history, the bakumatsu period (1853-67), when Japan ended its isolationist foreign policy and began opening its ports to Western trade. During this period, "Chinese translations of Western medical texts rendered a great service to Japan. First and foremost, this refers the Chinese-language editions of works by Benjamin Hobson" (Masuda, p. 3). Wong and Wu, note 310.

        The Campaigns of Hannibal:

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts,, 1858. Arranged and Critically Considered expressly for the Use of Students of Military History. Octavo. Original red slub-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine. Maps to the text. The cloth is somewhat rubbed and a little soiled, hinges repaired, text lightly browned, a quantity of informed pencil, red, blue and graphite, marginalia, overall professionally restored and now a sound copy, at least very good. First edition. Uncommon and interesting account, just 7 locations on Copac. Carefully compiled account of the "operations in which Hannibal was personally engaged", drawn from the "best ancient and modern historians and essayists, including Livy, Polybius, Sir Walter Raleigh, Niebuhr, Arnold, Guiscard, and Vaudancourt" (Preface). The author spent ten years with the Royal Canadian Rifle Regiment before service in the Crimea on the expedition to Ketch and Raglan's assaults on the Redan at Sebastopol. He took up the appointment of Director of Studies at Sandhurst; "In 1856 MacDougall's book The Theory of War: Illustrated by Numerous Examples from Military History was published. This advanced no original theories, but was largely a digest from the classic European military writers, and also advocated more scientific education of officers. An immediate success, it became a standard textbook, was translated into French and German, and gave MacDougall a leading place among British military writers. His 1857 pamphlet, The Senior Department of the Royal Military College, asserted the lack of proper instruction for staff officers, and probably led to his appointment to the new Staff College at Camberley. He was its first commandant, from February 1858 to September 1861" (ODNB). Macdougall was an industrious writer and lecturer at Staff College, and published a steady stream of well-received studies, including the present work, a life of his father-in-law, Sir William Napier, and Modern Warfare as Influenced by Modern Artillery, which was the first work by a British officer to incorporate lessons from the civil war. He spent time as adjutant-general of the Canadian Militia, and as deputy inspector-general of the auxiliary forces at the War Office, and being centrally involved in the Cardwell reforms in 1873 when "Cardwell established the new intelligence branch at the War Office, based on the existing topographical and statistical department but with more than double the staff. MacDougall, by then 'one of the most respected and influential major generals', was its first head … An excellent choice, he made an important contribution to British military intelligence, attempting to ensure quality through the appointment only of Staff College graduates to permanent posts, and expanding the branch's role to include involvement in defence planning. It rose from relative obscurity to increased prestige and real importance in the War Office, and by the time he left it was firmly established". He died in 1894. Ownership inscription of Adair Colpoys Heaslop, dated 1897. Heaslop graduated from Lincoln College, Oxford, was commissioned from the Volunteer Artillery as a 2nd Lieutenant, Royal Garrison Artillery in 1900; lieutenant RGA , 1901, captain 1911. He served in Sierra Leone 1901-2, and Commandant and Adjutant, Bermuda Militia Artillery, 1910-14. In September 1914 he was sent to France with 4th Siege Battery, RGA; Major, RGA December 1915, and served as Officer Commanding, 12th Siege Battery in XIV Corps Heavy Artillery until December 1916. Took part in the actions at the Aisne, Lys, First Ypres, Ploegstreet, Hooge, The Bluff, St. Eloi, and in Mesopotamia, Tekrit and Kifri. Twice mentioned in despatches, MC.

        Papers relative to the Separation of the Moreton Bay District from New South Wales, and the Establishment of a Separate Government

      London: Eyre and Spottiswoode, 1858. Tall quarto, vi, 66pp. (last blank), with a folding handcoloured map measuring 550 x 405 mm., very good condition. Prelude to the foundation of Queensland. Important collection of parliamentary papers detailing the separation of the Moreton Bay district from New South Wales, the precursor to the declaration of Queensland as a discrete colony in December 1859. The papers include a significant Arrowsmith map of the region proposing new border divisions coloured by hand.In 1851 the first Moreton Bay representative was appointed New South Wales parliament; by 1858 nine members represented districts north of the Clarence River. The isolation of the settlement from Sydney brought a sense of neglect alongside serious administration problems, motivating squatters and free settlers towards political self-determination.The large folding map bound into this report was printed by renowned London cartographer John Arrowsmith. It is dated January 1858 and titled Map shewing the proposed boundary between News South Wales and the Moreton Bay Colony, and the proposed division of that Colony into Electoral Districts. The new border between the two colonies is handcoloured red and yellow, and runs along the 29th parallel until following the course of the Barwon and Dumaresq rivers. Electoral districts north of the border are coloured in green, while those in New South Wales are yellow. The map details the entire coastline from the mouth of the Clarence River at Shoal Bay to Cape Gloucester (near present day Bowen) above the 20th parallel.The report presents a rich and varied collection of documents illustrating both sides of a contentious debate. Petitions for and against separation from all the northern districts are included, some of which shed valuable light on local aspirations for political self-determination. The issue of debt features prominently, given the colony of New South Wales carried the considerable burden of £2,234,700; accordingly several of the submissions included in this report discuss how this is to be shared with the nascent Moreton Bay Colony.Likewise, the resumption of transportation is openly broached in the report - an important issue given the history of Moreton Bay as a destination for violent recidivists until abandoned for this purpose in 1839 in favour of Port Arthur. Although the township at Moreton Bay had existed as a free settlement for some years, squatters desired a return of transportation to solve the shortage of labour. Ultimately, the colony of Queensland was formed without a resumption of transportation to the eastern seaboard of Australia.

        Three Papers on the Tendency of Species to Form Varieties; And the Perpetuation of Varieties and Species by Natural Means of Selection

      London: J. Van Voorst 1858, 2nd printed edition. () xvi, 5858-6312pp. Very good. Octavo. Original blind stamped red cloth with gilt title on spine. Clean pages, a very nice copy. Freeman, 349. These three papers were published shortly before Darwin's "The Origin of Species" and were the first introduction of speciation and the theory of natural selection. Darwin concieved of the idea in 1839, but didn't think the public was ready for such adverse ideas to popular belief. He felt it was necessary to gather as much evidence in favour of his ideas before publicizing his theories. In June 1858, Wallace sent Darwin a letter containing his own very concise concepts of natural selection. Darwin was not ready to release his theories yet, and while Wallace was still in the Malay Archipelago, he needed to be given credit. After discussion with John Hooker and Charles Lyell, Darwin decided to release a publication with three papers: the letter by Wallace, and two by Darwin (being a letter to Asa Gay, and an abstract of his manuscript). These were to be read at a meeting held by Linnean Society of London on June 2, and then printed in the journal of the proceedings afterwards. There was little interest at the reading, but a popular magazine, the Zoologist, realized the importance of the ideas and also published the work. This copy is that published work..

        Three papers on the tendency of species to form varieties; and on the perpetuation of varieties and species by natural means of selection.

      . London, J. van Voorst, 1858. 8vo. 16 pp. Contemporary embossed red cloth with gilt title on the spine.l Contained in: The Zoologist, volume 16. These three papers, published shortly before "The origin of species", actually introduce the notion of speciation and natural selection independently discovered by Darwin and by Wallace. Darwin had already conceived of his theory in 1839, but because of its expected strong effects upon biological sciences, as well as on ethics, religion and morality, publication was greatly delayed, mainly because Darwin thought it absolutely necessary to collect as much supporting evidence as possible. However, in June 1858, Darwin received a letter by Wallace containing a clear and concise rendering of the concept of natural selection. Darwin, who was not quite ready yet, had to publish his ideas, and Wallace, who still was out collecting birds and beetles in the Malay Archipelago, had to be given credits due. Darwin discussed the matter with Charles Lyell and John Hooker, and it was decided that three papers, one by Wallace, being his letter, and two by Darwin (a letter to Asa Gay, and an abstract of Darwin's manuscript), were to be read at the meeting of the Linnean Society of London on June 2, and to be printed in the Journal of the Proceedings of the society (Volume 3, pp. 45-62, dated August 30, 1858). The reading hardly made a stir. However, the editors of the more popular and much wider-read The Zoologist magazine sensed its importance and published it too (this copy) in the 16th volume, pp. 6293-6308. We offer the entire volume 16, bound in contemporary embossed full cloth. Some wear to spine ends and lower rear joint, armorial college bookplate on the front pastedown, small private owner's stamp on the half title (F. F. Freeman, a relative of Darwin's bibliographer?), and a vague stamp on the title page verso. Otherwise fine, with clean pages. A really nice copy in very good condition. Freeman, 349..

An important book for its full coverage of colour theory and painting materials, but also because of the high quality plates. Ruari McLean says, "On only one plate, no.4, with twenty five panels showing harmonious arrangements of colour, does there appear to be any hand-colouring. Plates 22 and 23 might be sketches, or notes, by a French Impressionist, and are, in their way, among the most improbable examples of colour printing of the whole century." An unusually fine copy with the binding in fresh condition, and the interior bright, and with occasional insignificant foxing. Abbey, Life 94 (the second edition).

Für forstleute, techniker und holzarbeiter. 32 pp. Illustrated with 50 mounted tree samples, each within a thin paper chemise with circular label bearing the name of each tree sample in German and Latin. 8vo., 132 x 100 mm, loose as issued in original book-shaped pebbled cloth chemise and slipcase (a little worn). Stuttgart and Augsburg: J.G. Cotta, 1858.|~| |~||~||~||~||~| First Edition. A rare mid-nineteenth century work containing 50 paper-thin slices of wood and tree specimens for the use of microscopic investigation, accompanied by descriptive text in German. The specimens were cross-cut to show the grain of the wood, as well as the colour, structure, etc. Each sample is mounted within an oval window, and features a circular label bearing the name in Latin and German. Nördlinger (1818-1897) was a recognized authority on trees and wood from around the world; he was the indefatigable author of numerous works on the subject, including an 11 volume survey of trees (containing 1100 samples) which appeared in the years 1856-1888. He received several awards for his achievements, namely at the 1851 and 1862 London exhibitions (the former appearing as a stamped medallion on one of the sheets in the present collection). Nördlinger was awarded a professorship at the University of Tübingen in 1881. The present work is not to be confused with the undated "Collection de 60 Sections Transversales de Bois" (ca. 1870-1880) which is essentially a reissue of the wood specimens with a French text.

A thorough and lively work on California, with much on the state's natural resources, history, and economy, as well as its gold fields and agricultural prospects.

One map shows all of California, while the other shows several routes to California from England and Europe, including overland from New York or New Orleans, across the Isthmus of Panama, or around the Horn.

The painting was formerly pasted onto something else, and so on the back of remnants in the corner of this.

        Friendly Hints to the Young Naval Lieutenant

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longman, & Roberts, 1858. Small octavo, 124 pp., all edges gilt; a very attractive copy in plum morocco embossed in blind, lettered in gilt to front board and with royal arms to rear board, spine banded and gilt. First edition in a lovely presentation binding.Liardet was a professional naval officer who served against America in the War of 1812. He had an active and heroic career during which he was nearly blinded, forcing his retirement in 1841. Appointed to Greenwich Hospital, Liardet went on to write three practical naval books, works which concentrated on the technical aspects of sailing and are something of a vade mecum for junior officers. Liardet's informal account of shipboard life presents a wonderful glimpse into Royal Navy vessels at mid-century.Perhaps a testament to its usefulness and readability, this is a scarce work; Worldcat shows only four libraries holding copies.
