        Historia de Belgrano [Two Volumes].

      Buenos Aires: Libreria de la Victoria / Impr. de Mayo, 1858-1859.. 644 pp.; 553, 4 [ads] pp. Sm. 4to. Cloth. First edition. Palau 173451. Spain & Spanish America I, 459. Sabin 49758. Leclerc 1915. Conde Montero 25. Historia de Belgrano was the expansion of an article that originally appeared in Galeria, and it subsequetly went through four editions, the last in 1887, each one much augmented. "Mitre gathered and studied the books of America history, he submitted them to critical testing, he classified them according to what precipiated from them, and tried to contrast the results of his personal reseach among unpublished sources with what was already published, " (Romulo D. Carbia, Historia critica de la historiografia agentina, p. 166-7). "Despite the impressive bibliographical apparatus supporting his work, however, Mitre's Historia de Belgrano provoked an enduring polemic regarding his basic premise: that a history of Belgrano, a great man, and the enlightened minority in Buenos Aires could somehow be a history of Argentine independence, " (Nicolas Shumway, The Invention of Argentina, p. 208). Sabin calls it "a masterly work." Very good copies with restored wrappers; Vol. I has nick to first few leaves, last few leaves unopened (uncut); Vol. II has publisher's error with earlier extra title (dated 1858) bound upside-down before half-title and also inserted correctly at rear; binding near fine.

        To the Central African Lakes & Back

      Joseph Thomson (1858-1895) was a Scottish geologist and explorer who played a role in the European Race for Africa.  Thomson's Gazelle is named for him.  In 1878 Thomson was appointed geologist and naturalist to Alexander Keigh Johnston's Royal Geographical Society expedition to establish a route from Dar es Salaam to Lake Nyasa and Lake Tanganyika. Johnston died early in the journey and Thomson assumed leadership. This two-volume work is very good overall in the striking, original, and unrestored decorated cloth bindings.  The bindings are very good with only light wear, nicely rounded spines, and excellent shelf appearance.  The only significant binding appearance issue to note is a rectangular section of moderate fading to the lower third of both front covers.  The contents are clean and crisp with age-toning at the untrimmed page edges.  No spotting.  All illustrations and maps are intact.  Previous ownership marks are limited to a discreet private lending library ink stamp on the blank title page verso.  The structural flaws in the sets are gutterbreaks - a break at page 48 of Volume I with the binding cords still holding and a front hinge break at the Vol. II pastedown with the mull still intact. From the Preface: "I, who had been selected only as an assistant, found myself unexpectedly in a position of difficulty and responsibility which I felt myself far from being competent to fill.  But I remembered I was the countryman of Livingstone, and my Scottish blood would not allow me to retreat till I had performed my duty to the best of my ability."  Thomson successfully led the expedition over 3000 miles in 14 months.  His explorations and observations are recorded in this book.  The Royal Geographic Society continued to support his explorations and a later expedition and subsequent book by Thomson, Through Masai Land, become a bestseller.

        Ionica

      Smith, Elder and Co., London 1858 - Original green fine-ribbed cloth, gilt lettering on spine. Published anonymously, this book of delicate poems has been said heralded as the first book of what is now called Uranian Poetry, a small group of pederastic poets who published works between 1858 and 1930. Cory, as many other Uranian poets, was steeped in Latin and Greek and his early poems show a remarkable, lyrical quality esteemed by his peers. Spine sunned with small tear, worn at extremities, hinges cracked. A very good copy of what is now an exceedingly scarce and historically significant book. No other copies located at time of research. [Attributes: First Edition]

        NOTES ON THE SURGERY OF THE WAR IN THE CRIMEA

      1858. MACLEOD, George H. B. NOTES ON THE SURGERY OF THE WAR IN THE CRIMEA, WITH REMNARKS ON THE TREATMENT OF GUNSHOT WOUNDS. London: John Churchill, 1858. First edition. Frontispiece map. xii,439 pp. (i.e. 455 pp. because a duplicate of signature 2D is bound-in immediately after the first 2D). Octavo. Publisher's brown cloth, gilt-stamped title to spine, yellow coated endpapers. Backstrip is detached but present, with shallow loss at crown. Some spotting to lower board. Bookblock is overopened at either end and near the center, where one signature is sprung. Text leaves are clean. Ink ownership of George Hinckley Lyman on ffep.: "Geo. H. Lyman | Brigade Surgeon | Porter's Division | Army of the Potomac | 1861," and some neat pencil bracketing of text. After the war, Lyman served as president of the Massachusetts Medical Society and was a founder of the American Gynecological Society. (Steiner, Physician-Generals in the Civil War, pp. 12 & 142). Despite the apparent wear to this volume, its component pieces are surprisingly clean and fresh looking. During the Crimean War, Macleod was a surgeon in the Civil Hospital at Smyrna and the General Hospital established at Sebastopol. In this book he discusses the geography of and climatology of the Crimea, military hygiene in the field, the use of chloroform as an anesthetic, and the various wounds and injuries common on the battlefied, especially gunshot wounds. (Heirs of Hippocrates 1933, Waller 6120). This book was used by Union and Confederate surgeons during the course of the American Civil War and was issued by both a Union and a Confederate publisher in 1862. Quite Scarce in this first edition [there have been none at auction in the last 25 years].

        Highly important collection of more than fifty Pasteur offprints assembled by his assistant Désiré Gernez, including some of the rarest and most important papers by Pasteur: 1) Recherches sur les relations qui peuvent exister entre la forme cristalline, (1848); 2) Mémoire sur la fermentation appelée lactique (1858); 3) Sur les corpuscules organisés qui existent dans l'atmosphère, examen de la doctrine des générations spontanées (1862); 4) Recherches sur la putréfaction (1863); 5) Méthode pour prévenir la rage après morsure (1886); [and numerous further offprints by Pasteur].Paris: 1848-86.

      All first editions, offprint issues. "It is impossible to select a single scientific paper or book to represent adequately the work of Pasteur. This is due less to the recondite nature of his discoveries than to their variety and ramification. Yet all of them are interconnected" (PMM). "His earliest paper [<i>Recherches sur les relations...</i>, 1st paper mentioned above] gave the first scientific explanation of isomerism, a term coined by Berzelius to describe his discovery that two or more compounds of identical composition may display totally different properties. The effects of Pasteur's discoveries in this connection have been far-reaching in chemistry both theoretically and practically, notably in the work of van't Hoff and Lebel on chemistry in space. They are detailed in [<i>Recherches sur la dissymétrie moléculaire des produits organiques</i>, also present in the collection]. Indeed it was the existence of asymmetric molecules that he discovered" (PMM). "Of Pasteur's papers on molecular asymmetry, the most important are <i>Recherches sur le dimorphism</i>; <i>Recherches sur les relations qui peuvent exister entre la forme crystalline</i>; <i>Recherches sur les proprietes specifiques des deux acides qui composent l'acide racemique</i>; <i>Nouvelles recherches sur les relations qui peuvent exister entre la forme crystalline</i>; <i>Mémoire sur les acides aspartique et malique</i>." (DSB). These papers are the first five offprints in the collection offered here.<br/><br/> "While engaged in these experiments Pasteur found that when molecules were brought into contact certain mould only the right-handed molecules were destroyed. This led him to the investigation of fermentation" (PMM). In 1858 Pasteur published his epochal paper on lactic fermentation [<i>Mémoire sur la fermentation appelée lactique</i>, 2nd paper mentioned above]. "Considered the beginning of the modern science of bacteriology, it demonstrated the connection between a specific fermentation (lactic) and the activity of a specific living microorganism (lactobacillus)" (Neville). [Norman 1653; ref. Horblit 82; Dibner 198]. <br/><br/> In the beginning of the 1860's Pasteur had completed a series of careful but simple experiments relative to so-called spontaneous generation. "When his conclusions were called in question by Pouchet, who claimed to have repeated his experiments with totally dissimilar results, Pasteur reported in 1861, in [<i>Sur les corpuscules organisés qui existent dans l'atmosphère...</i>, 3rd paper mentioned above], further experiments which demonstrated beyond dispute that fermentation is caused by the action of minute living organisms and that if these are killed fermentation does not occur." (PMM 336c). Pasteur's paper described the series of classic experiments with bent-necked and sealed flasks by which he proved conclusively that fermentation and putrefaction are not the products of spontaneous generation but result from contamination by airborne microorganisms. "The heating process which Pasteur recommended for sterilization was the earliest form of 'pasteurization.' The above paper marks the downfall of the theory of spontaneous generation. Pasteur's researches on fermentation led him to the discovery of the bacteria and yeasts and hence to the germ theory of disease; from all this modern bacteriology and immunology have developed" (Garrison-Morton 2475). "Pasteur's experiments also mark the beginning of microbiology since, by showing how to sterilize a liquid and keep it sterile, he opened up the possibility of culturing and studying a single microorganism in the absence of any others." (Norman 1655; Sparrow 161). <br/><br/> "As a result of these studies Pasteur found many new fields of interest. French winemakers, troubled by the souring of wine, especially in exporting, presented their problem to Pasteur. He found that wine diseases could be controlled by heating the liquid for a definite time at a certain temperature." (Sparrow). "Of Pasteur's papers on wine, the most important are <i>Études sur les vins. Premiere partie: De l'influence de l'oxygene de l'air dans la vinification</i> (1863); <i>Études sur les vins. Deuxieme partie: Des alterations spontanees ou maladies des vins, particulierement dans le Jura</i> (1864)... "These papers form the basis of and were developed into Pasteur's <i>Études sur le vin</i> [Norman 1655; Sparrow 160; Dibner 198n]" (DSB). Offprints of the founding papers mentioned in the DSB article are present in the offered collection. <br/><br/> "He went further and concluded [<i>Recherches sur la putrefaction</i>, 4th paper mentioned above] that putrefaction was also caused by living organisms: an observation that prompted the experiments of Lister and led to modern asepsis (PMM 336d). In this paper "Pasteur was the first to differentiate between aerobic and anaerobic organisms" (Garrsison-Morton 2478).<br/><br/> "At the request of the French government Pasteur investigated the diseases of the silk worms and found their origin to be bacterial. This led to identifying bacteria in anthrax and evolved into methods of inoculation for it and for the dreaded hydrophobia, diphtheria, cholera and yellow fever" (Dibner). "Pasteur's five-year investigation of silkworm blight saved the afflicted French silk industry, which over the preceding twenty years had suffered a sixfold reduction" (Norman). Most collections have Pasteur's 1870 two-volume book on the diseases of silkworms [Norman 1657; Dibner 198n]. Present in this collection are offprints of the much rarer earlier papers from 1866-69 which were worked into the later book.<br/><br/> Present in the collection are also offprints of the famous papers on his rabies vaccine [</i>Méthode pour prévenir la rage après morsure</i>, 5th paper mentioned above]. "Pasteur's papers describing his rabies vaccine, and the results he attained with it gave further proof of the value of attenuated virus as a protective inoculum against infective diseases in man and animals. This is considered Pasteur's greatest triumph." (Garrison-Morton 2541).<br/><br/> Please enquire for a full list of titles in the collection..

        FLORAL WORLD AND GARDEN GUIDE

      1858. [MAGAZINE]. A FLORAL WORLD AND GARDEN GUIDE. London: Groombridge and Sons, 1858-1876. 19 volumes. Each volume collects a year's periodical issues; and each is illustrated throughout with wood-engraved text illustrations. Most volumes include some plates. Later years, from 1869 to 1876, include a dozen full color plates in each volume. The 19 volumes offered here contain a total of 117 plates, of which 106 are color. The first six volumes are bound in publisher's decorated brown cloth and the remaining volumes in publisher's decorated dark green cloth. There is occasional spotting throughout the text and to the odd plate. About three of the plates from the later volumes have a moderate crease. Some minor wear at heads and extremities of volumes, yet an appealing set. A run of this length is seldom seen.

        ALBUM OF VIRGINIA; OR, ILLUSTRATION OF THE OLD DOMINION

      Richmond [but actually Dresden & Berlin]: Edward Beyer [but printed by Rau & Son of Dresden and W. Loeillot of Berlin], 1858.. Lithograph titlepage (with five vignettes) plus forty tinted lithograph plates. Oblong folio. Original gilt cloth boards bound onto larger modern three-quarter morocco and cloth. Titlepage lightly soiled and edgeworn. A few plates with closed marginal tears, expertly repaired; titlepage and each plate backed by tissue. [with:] [Beyer, Edward]: DESCRIPTION OF THE ALBUM OF VIRGINIA: OR THE OLD DOMINION, ILLUSTRATED. VOL. I [all published]. Richmond: Enquirer Book and Job Printing Office, 1857. [79]pp. Original half calf and cloth boards, gilt title on front board. Text volume very clean internally. Overall a very good, handsome copy of a book very difficult to find in clean condition, here with the scarce accompanying text volume. Both volumes housed in folding cloth box. The Beyer album is one of the foremost American view books created in the 19th century. "This is a major outstanding item, the rarity of which is by no means fully appreciated" - Bennett. Edward Beyer was a German artist who visited the United States in the early 1850s. He chose to concentrate his work on Virginia and Kentucky, spending three years in Virginia working on the original drawings for this book. Although the titlepage asserts Richmond was the place of printing, the book was actually produced in Germany, with the plates being prepared in Dresden and the letterpress in Berlin. The superb tinted lithograph views include beautiful natural scenes, Harpers Ferry, White Sulphur Springs, railroad bridges and tunnels (e.g. Highbridge near Farmville), views in Weyer&#39;s Cave, and scenes at many of the fashionable resorts which were nestled amid the mountains of Southwest Virginia. "He was taken by the beauty of the Virginia landscape, particularly by the elegant settings of some of the region&#39;s watering places...Virginians responded warmly to Beyer&#39;s enterprise and often gave him advance access to architectural plans when these could be of help to him. There was probably no Virginia county that Beyer left unvisited in his zeal to present what is, in fact, an affectionate family album of an entire state" - Deák. Deák praises Beyer&#39;s "delicate and precise style" and "characteristic refinement of proportion." It is one of the foremost works of American scenery. This copy of Beyer is notable for being accompanied by the small volume of explanatory text, separately published in Richmond in 1857. This volume is quite rare and almost never found with the album.

        Album of Virginia; or, illustration of the Old Dominion

      Richmond, Virginia [but Dresden & Berlin, Germany]: Edward Beyer [but printed by Rau & Son of Dresden and W.Loeillot of Berlin], 1858. Oblong folio. (16 1/4 x 24 inches). Lithographed throughout. Tinted title with five vignettes, 40 tinted plates after Beyer by Rau & Son (18) or W.Loeillot (22). Original half morocco over cloth-covered boards, the lower cover blocked in blind with title panel and surrounding decorative border, the upper cover with the title panel in gilt, and the surrounding decorative border in blind, the flat spine divided into six compartments by gilt roll tools, modern red morocco-backed red cloth box, the spine with raised bands, lettered direct in the second compartment. One of the foremost works of American scenery from the golden age of lithography. "This is a major outstanding item, the rarity of which is by no means fully appreciated" (Bennett). Edward Beyer was a German artist who visited the United States in the early 1850s. He chose to concentrate his work on Virginia and Kentucky, spending three years in Virginia working on the original drawings for this book. Although the title notes that the copyright was registered by Beyer in the District of Virginia, the book was actually produced in Germany, with the plates being prepared in Dresden or Berlin. The superb tinted lithograph views (printed in black with, generally, two further colours) include beautiful natural scenes, Harper&#39;s Ferry, White Sulphur Springs, railroad bridges and tunnels (e.g Highbridge near Farmville), views in Weyer&#39;s Cave, and scenes at many of the fashionable spa resorts which nestled amid the mountains of Southwest Virginia. Deak writes of Beyer: "He was taken by the beauty of the Virginia landscape, particularly by the elegant settings of some of the region&#39;s watering places. Virginians responded warmly to Beyer&#39;s enterprise and often gave him advance access to architectural plans when these could be of help to him.

        FREIGHT LOCOMOTIVE ENGINE. DON JUAN

      [ca. 1850s].. A very fine drawing, pen and black ink over pencil. Image 25 1/2 x 41 inches, wide margins. Ink ruled border. Calligraphic title and mechanical specifications within upper image. Signed lower left: "Z. Colburn, Del." Uniform light age-toning with unobtrusive light scattered foxing. Excellent condition. Impressive carved hardwood frame and gilt liner, French mat. A large and visually impressive schematic drawing of the locomotive engine, Don Juan, stopped on a section of track, probably prepared to illustrate a private report for an American railroad company. This finely detailed drawing of the Don Juan is fully seven times the size, and more sharply delineated, than Colburn&#39;s well known railroad lithographs, executed in 1858 by Julius Bien and found in THE PERMANENT WAY AND COAL BURNING LOCOMOTIVES..., a comparative economic and technological analysis of British and European railway systems, with their American counterparts. The mechanical specifications of the powerful Don Juan are finely inked above its smokestacks: "DIAM of CYLINDER, 18 in. STROKE of PISTON, 20 in. DIAM. of DRIVERS, 42 in. WT. of ENGINES, 24 tons. WATER room in boiler, 96 cubic ft. STEAM do. 48 cubic ft. CAPACITY of do. 718 gallons. TUBE SURFACE, 928 sq. ft. FIRE BOX do. 60 sq. ft. AREA OF GRATE, 11-1/12 sq. ft." A rare and eminently displayable piece of 19th- century American railroadiana, this is the first Colburn drawing we have encountered, and a remarkable example of virtuosity in graphics. See Zerah Colburn & Alexander L. Holley, THE PERMANENT WAY AND COAL-BURNING LOCOMOTIVE BOILERS OF EUROPEAN RAILWAYS WITH A COMPARISON OF THE WORKING ECONOMY OF EUROPEAN AND AMERICAN LINES, AND THE PRINCIPLES UPON WHICH IMPROVEMENT MUST PROCEED (New York, 1858), passim. Illustrated with fifty- one engraved plates; the frontispiece, of the passenger engine, Canute, is very much in the style of the present drawing.

        Landskapsstudier.

      Två laverade pennteckningar på ett och samma blad, var och en omgiven av en tecknad ramlinje. Den ena, i liggande format, signerad "Roselli" på en sten i förgrunden, den andra, föreställande ett vattenfall, i stående format. 14 × 20,5 resp. 19 × 12,8 cm. (Bladet 28 × 21,5 cm.) Bladet något smutsat. Oinramad. Den småländske bondsonen Frans Roselli växte upp vid hemmanet Rosan utanför Eksjö och bildade senare sitt efternamn från gårdsnamnet. Han sattes i lära hos en målarmästare i Eksjö vid 14 års ålder men var ambitiös och blev omkring 1858 elev i Marcus Larsons 'konstskola' i Flenshult vid Vimmerby. I Axel Gauffins skildring av målarskolan omtalas Roselli som trumslagare och när han 1867 kom till Konstakademien i Stockholm skrevs han in i principskolans matrikel som "f. d. hautboist från Småland" (Axel Gauffin, Marcus Larsson, ett svenskt geni (1943), s. 152. Stockholm, Konstakademien. Principskolans matrikel 1849-1870 nr 2637. Inskriven 5 februari och på nytt 1 november 1867).Roselli var i sitt måleri tydligt påverkad av Marcus Larson och "sökte efterfölja sin mästare i ljuseffekternas bravur" (Ewert Wrangel, Smålands konstnärers utställning i samband med Hantverks- och industriutställningen i Nässjö 21 juni-16 juli 1922 (Nässjö 1922), s. 9). Efter sejouren i Stockholm försökte han sälja sina tavlor i Tyskland, men var inte tillräckligt framgångsrik för att ta sig till Rom som han hoppats. Han insjunkade kort senare i en lungsjukdom och dog vid endast 35 års ålder.Av dessa fina skisser framgår att Roselli var en långt mer framstående tecknare än målare. Men källmaterialet är begränsat. Hans teckningar är sällsynta och tycks inte finnas ens i våra större museer, frånsett ett blad med enkla studier av fötter i Nationalmuseum och en likaledes enkel teckning i Teckningsmuseet i Laholm.I dessa teckningar är inflytandet från Marcus Larson märkbart, åtminstone beträffande motivvalet. Mindre larsonsk är deras odramatiska, nästan rofyllda stämning

Fyra samtida lätt nötta gröna halvmarokängbd med upphöjda bind och robust blindpräglad och guldpräglad ryggdekor. Pärmarna klädda i mönsterpressad klot. Med några skrapmärken och repor i skinnet. Enstaka lager- och småfläckar. Med liten fuktrand på s. 236-306 i första delen. Liten bläckanteckning på s. 319 i den andra. Spridda marginalanteckningar i tredje till sjätte delen. Femte delen med småstänk på s. 91-94. Supplementdelen längst bak med liten fuktfläck på s. 188-206. Mycket bra ex. där endast totalt 4 blad saknas.. Redigerades av ett flertal medarbetare där Gustaf Thomée stod för kontinuiteten. Andra medarbetare var Gustaf Hogner, G. P. Westerling, Åke C. V. Hammar, V. G. Granlund och L. Westerberg. Fortfarande ett mycket användbart uppslagsverk, i synnerhet som här där det separat utgivna registret är medbundet. Att små delar av subskribentförteckningen, vissa rättelse- och smutstitelblad etc. saknas får nästan anses som legio i detta verk. Denna svit är ovanligt komplett med både supplement och register. Av de saknade bladen består två, som så ofta, av de två betitlade "Första förteckning öfver sådana ställen..." som trycktes redan 1858. De andra två är ett smutstitelblad och ett fristående registerblad till första volymens inledning, "Allmän öfversigt"

        Wermland i teckningar efter naturen af A. Winqvist. Lithografierade af J. H. Strömer utgifne af Franz von Schéele.

      First edition. Stockholm. Tr. hos A. J. Salmson. 1858-1867. Oblong folio.Lithographed title page + printed title page + (2) pp. (dedication) + 86 pp. + (2) pp. (index) + 40 lithographed plates. Gilt ornated blind stamped cloth binding. Gilt titlelt at front cover. Beautiful. A few scratches to the front board. Some wear to the spine. A few marginal stains to the plates. 4 plates with a few staines to the image area. A very well preserved and clean copy of an uncommon plate book.. The plates show views of the landscape and towns of the district of Wermland in the west of Sweden. The people of Wermland can be proud that such an ambitious work of their district was produced in the mid 19th. century. The noble man Franz von Scheele (1795-1863) made this possible. He spent his life promoting Wermland and this book was a part of the effort. He died before all the parts of the book were published. The plates were printed by the leading printer in the country at the time - Salmson. Before the book was finished he had to flee the country because of financial problems (just like Almquist a few years earlier). The printing was finished by Abraham Lundquist. At least three different lithographers executed the plates. Only Strömer is mentioned at the title. He lithographed 8 plates, Schöpel 12 and Nay 8. The remaining 12 are not signed. Scarce
