        12 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Poitiers, 1858-1875.. Zus. 32 S., 8°.. "Er besuchte das Priesterseminar der Diözese Chartres und war auf dem Priesterseminar St. Sulpice in Paris eingeschrieben. Am 25. Mai 1839 wurde er zum Diözesanpriester der Diözese Chartres geweiht. Danach war er als Vikar in der Kathedrale von Chartres tätig und wurde 1844 zum Generalvikar ernannt. Seine Wahl zum Bischof von Poitiers erfolgte am 29. Mai 1849, die am 28. September 1849 bestätigt wurde. Der Bischof von Chartres Claude-Hippolyte Clausel de Montals und die Mitkonsekratoren Bischof Pierre-Louis Parisis von Langres und Jean-Nicaise Gros von Versailles weihten ihn am 25. November 1849 zum Bischof. Bischof Pie war anfangs kein Befürworter des Dogmas zur Unfehlbarkeit des Papstes (vergleiche auch: Pastor Aeternus von 1870), seine Meinung änderte er nach der Teilnahme am Ersten Vatikanischen Konzil (1869-1870) und wurde ein starker Verfechter dieses Dogmas. Am 12. Mai 1879, dem ersten Konsistorium des Jahres 1879, wurde er von Papst Leo XIII. (1878-1903) zum Kardinal erhoben, am 22. September 1879 erhielt er das rote Birett, gleichzeitig wurde ihm als Kardinalpriester die Kirche Santa Maria della Vittoria in Rom übertragen. Er starb am 17. Mai 1880 und wurde in der Kathedrale von Poitiers beigesetzt" (Wikipedia). - 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. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        2 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.,

      Belfast, 1852-1858. - An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - Andrews „besuchte die Belfast Academy und das Academical Institution. 1828 studierte er an der Universität Glasgow unter Professor Thomas Thomson Chemie. 1830 studierte er mit Pasteur bei Jean-Baptiste Dumas in Paris und 1831 zog er auf das Trinity College in Dublin und erwarb dort eine Auszeichnung in den klassischen Wissenschaften sowie in den klassischen Altertumswissenschaften. Er promovierte 1835 an der Universität Edinburgh als Doktor der Medizin und schloss eine medizinische Praxis erfolgreich ab. Er wurde praktischer Arzt in Belfast sowie Professor für Chemie an der neugegründeten Hochschule für Medizin der Academical Institution in Belfast. Seit 1839 war er Mitglied der Royal Irish Academy. 1845 war Andrews Vizepräsident sowie Professor für Chemie am Queens' College in Belfast. Er lieferte bedeutende Arbeiten zur Wärmeentwicklung bei chemischen Prozessen, zum Verbrennungsprozess und über das Ozon. Er leistete Arbeiten zur Gasverflüssigung (besonders Kohlendioxid), zur elektrischen Leitfähigkeit heißer Gase und auf dem Gebiet der Galvanisierung. 1861 entdeckte Andrews, dass sich Gase oberhalb einer bestimmten Temperatur nicht mehr durch Druck in flüssige Form überführen lassen. 1863 schloss er erstmals auf die Existenz einer kritischen Temperatur und bestimmte Oxidations- und Neutralisationswärmen. Er interpretierte Ozon als Modifikation des Sauerstoffs. Nach ihm ist das Andrews-Diagramm zur Darstellung der thermischen Zustandsgleichung von Gasen benannt" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Einige Knickspuren. - Sprache: en Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Grande Illustrazione del Lombardo-Veneto ossia storia delle città, dei borghi, comuni, castelli, ecc. fino ai tempi moderni.

      Milano, 1858 - Sei volumi di cm. 25, pp. 839 (9); 830; 1244; 1014; 1091; 791. Frontespizio inciso a ciascun volume, 2 piante di città ripiegate (Venezia e Mantova), una veduta di Venezia a doppia pagina, 2 tavole ripiegate, 19 ritratti fuori testo e 977 incisioni xilografiche prevalentemente di vedute, panoramiche, scene storiche e particolari delle città e dei paesi descritti. Elegante legatura coeva in mezza pelle, dorsi a nervi con titoli e filetti in oro, fregi a secco. Un po' scolorito ai bordi dei piatti, qualche lieve brunitura, peraltro esemplare fresco, genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Si tratta della seconda edizione, pressochè uguale alla prima e pubblicata contemporaneamente ma che da quest'ultima si differenzia almeno per la presenza dei ritratti. Spesso il numero delle piante fuori testo e dei ritratti varia secondo l'operato del legatore. Opera ancor'oggi ricercata per la quantità di informazioni storiche, statistiche e topografiche riguardanti l'alta Italia. Ogni provincia viene descritta dettagliatamente a partire dal capoluogo fino a tutti i centri minori che la compongono. Notevole inoltre l'aspetto vedutistico che risulta una delle maggiori fonti documentarie del tempo soprattutto per quanto concerne la provincia e le zone solitamente meno privilegiate dal punto di vista iconografico. Insieme ormai piuttosto raro a reperirsi completo, anche perché formato da studi monografici che vengono spesso proposti singolarmente. Cfr. Cremonini 164 (che cita 17 ritratti); Catalogo Hoepli, 593: "Opera delle più interessanti e compiute per quel tempo, che illustra le regioni del Lombardo-Veneto sotto tutti gli aspetti, storico, artistico, culturale, economico, ecc". Ormai non comune, soprattutto quando completa di tutte le tavole ed i ritratti come nel presente esemplare (nessuna copia censita recentemente porta un tale numero di ritratti). Esemplare impreziosito inoltre da una legatura assai decorativa. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Wear and creasing to boards, indication of moisture to final leafs to Kennedy's volume, unobtrusive to text, otherwise both volumes are in very good condition.Including several works of Irish interest, duets, rhymes, rounds, and marching music fill the manuscript labeled "D.G. Kennedy's Manuscript Music Book", including the following: • The Meeting of the Waters. Music by Thomas Moore (1779-1852). A song from Wicklow County Ireland about the River Avoca and the River Avonmore, the latter also known as Abhainn Dea. • (part of) Fly Not Yet. Irish Air. by Thomas Moore (1779-1852), Irish poet, satirist, composer, and political propagandist, close friend of Lord Byron. • Cheer Boys Cheer. Composed by English pianist, baritone singer and composer Henry Russell (1812-1900), lyrics by Charles Mackay, here replacing 'England' with 'Ireland'. "... no more idle sorrow. Courage, true hearts shall bear us on our way... So farewell Ireland much as we may love thee... to sail in search of fortune..." • The chorus notes to a national song, "Hurrah for Ireland" • How Sweet in the Woodlands.

A round by Thomas Morley (1557/58-1602), composer, organist, and theorist, and the first of the great English madrigalists. Coleraine (from Irish Cúil Rathain, meaning "nook of the ferns", Scottish: Cowlraine) is a large town and civil parish near the mouth of the River Bann in County Londonderry, Northern Ireland. It was one of the two urban communities developed by the London Companies in County Londonderry (hence, Londonderry) in the Plantation of Ulster at the start of the 17th century. With some industrialisation, the expansion of the river port, and the development of the railway, the town expanded significantly throughout the 19th century and into the early part of the 20th century. Around the time of these documents, the following significant events took place. In 1832 an outbreak of disease caused much loss of life. In 1844 a stone bridge was erected across the River Bann. In 1851 the Earl Bishop's Downhill Demense was destroyed by fire. In 1859 the Town Hall was designed by Thomas Turner and built by McLaughlin & Harvey. In 1853 a new railway line connected Coleraine and Londonderry.. Very Good.

      3pp on folded sheet. "Highwood Cottage, Fortis Green, Finchley, May 18, 1858." An early letter by Patmore (1823-1896), famed English poet and Pre-Raphaelite associate, to the baronet John Simeon who had recently published a book on John Donne, and noteworthy in Patmore's mentioning and promoting Dante Gabriel Rossetti's incipient book publication: "Gabriel Rossetti, the painter, is about to print a selection from almost unknown Italian poets previous to Dante ["Early Italian Poets," Smith, Elder adn Co., 1861]. Patmore continues: "I have seen the M.S. and am sure that the work is one which will give you great pleasure. I know of no other poetry so intense and lofty as some of these pieces, which are as ingenious and intellectual as Donne, and far more passionate." Fine.

        California and its Resources. A Work for the Merchant, the Capitalist, and the Emigrant.

      London: Trubner and Co., 1858. - 8vo., (8 ¾ x 5 5/8 inches). Advertisement leaf. 2 folding lithographed maps (each with a repaired tear); tinted lithographed frontispiece; 13 black-and-white and 7 tinted lithographed illustrations in a total of 16 plates (some spotting). Original publisher's pebbled cloth, covers stamped in gilt and in blind, the spine titled in gilt (binding a bit shaken but holding). Provenance: Contemporary manuscript ownership inscription of John Hamilton to title page. First edition. A beautifully illustrated paean to California. "Scarce. One of the best books on the resources of California, with much historical material on the Vigilance Committee" (Howell). As the title suggests, the purpose of this book is to encourage people of all stripes to settle in California, from the European emigrant to the ambitious businessman, highlighting the opportunities presented by the discovery of gold in the region. "One of the best early surveys of the natural resources of California" (Currey and Kruska). The author seeks to give an overview of California's natural resources and its history, as well as the best routes to reach it. One map outlines the various routes to California from Europe, while the other portrays the whole territory, with an inset of the neighboring areas. The illustrations "are of much Gold Rush significance" (Wheat), in particular the two views of Yosemite, which "were derived from sketches made by Thomas A. Ayres in 1855. These illustrations appear to be the first views of Yosemite Valley published in a book" (Currey and Kruska).

        Elementary History of the Progress of the Art of War

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1858. Octavo. Original red pebble-grained cloth, title and decorative panel gilt to the spine, blind panels to the boards. A little rubbed and soiled, head and tail of spine crumpled and slightly split, light browning, but overall very good, largely unopened. First edition. Uncommon. James John Graham, is a somewhat obscure figure. After passing out from Sandhurst in 1822 he served as judge-advocate in the West Indies, and briefly as an engineer. But between 1832 and 1835 he took civilian employment as secretary and treasurer to the South-Eastern Railway Company in England, and his only significant military service seems to have been as military secretary to Sir Robert Hussey Vivian, commander of the British "Turkish Contingent" in the Crimean War. His name is known to us today as the first translator of Clausewitz into English: his translation - with some revision - is still in print today. Interestingly he appears to make not a single reference to Clausewitz in the present work.
