        [RUSSIA - AMUR - BLAGOVESHCHENSK] [Album of Ninety-Six Original Gelatin Silver Photographs of Blagoveshchensk on the Amur River, Showing Major Trading Houses and Shops on the Bolshaya Street, Girls' School, Cathedrals and Churches (Demolished in Soviet Time), the Triumphal Arch, Customs House and Steamers on the Amur River, Chinese Villages on the Other Bank, Chinese workers, Russian Peasants, and Others]

      Ca. 1910s. Oblong Folio (ca. 26x34,5 cm). Twelve album leaves. Ninety-six mounted gelatin silver prints, each ca. 7x10 cm (2 ¾ x 4 in). No captions. Period brown quarter faux leather album with paper boards, rubbed on extremities, corners slightly bumped. Several images slightly faded, but overall a very good album. Interesting album of rare photos of Blagoveshchensk, the centre of the Russian Amur oblast and an important port on the Amur River located just about 500 meters from Chinese city of Heihe on the other bank of the river. Blagoveshchensk was founded on the confluence of the Amur and Zeya Rivers in 1858 and became an important trade center in the early 20th century due to the lucrative gold extraction industry on the river and the proximity to the state border with China. The main street of Blagoveshchensk - Bolshaya - accommodated the offices of the main Siberian trade houses, the port numbered over 150 steamers and over 200 barges. The photos were apparently taken by a well-off Blagoveshchensk resident, and include over a dozen views of the Bolshaya Street (now Lenina Street), showing Kunst and Albers department store (built in 1894, one image shows the store with the sign "Christmas fair"), Siberian Trade Bank, Trade house "Kokovin and Basov," Torgovaya Square (now Victory Square) with open air wooden pavilions, shops of I.K. [?] Mazur, V.M. Pankov, Matveyenko bros., "Japanese shop Tokio- Yoko, goldsmith," garden supplies shop, first city electric station "Vseobshchaya Kompaniya Elektrichestva" (built in 1908), Cathedral of the Intercession of the Theotokos (demolished in 1980, new cathedral of different design built in 1997-2002), Alexeyevskaya school for girls (on the corner of Bolshaya Street and American side-street), entrance to the Voznesenskoye cemetery with an Orthodox Christian chapel (built in 1872, demolished in the 1930s), and others. There are also interesting views of the Triumphal Arch (built in 1891) and trade house "Mauritania" on the embankment of the Amur River, several photos of the steamers on the river (with two signs reading "Andrey" and "Peterburg"), views of the city embankment (showing cannons pointed towards the state border, frozen Amur, timber piles on shore), Amur River banks and villages on the Chinese side, Russian customs house, portraits of Chinese cart drivers, brick makers, Russian peasants et al. The album closes with three images of an open air church sermon and a church procession and over twenty portraits of Blagoveshchensk residents - apparently, the album compiler and his family.

        Deseret News - Truth and Liberty - No. 15, Vol. VIII - Fillmore City, Wednesday, June 16, 1858

      Fillmore City, Utah Territory: Deseret News. 1858. Newspaper. Newspaper has 4pp of text, is paginated 70-72 and text is divided into four columns of each page. Measures 11 1/4" x 16" and is in very good condition. Newspaper has light soiling to first leaf, pen marginalia on first leaf, minor bleeding of text, minor creasing at corners, and is fragile where once folded. This rare issue of The Deseret News was published in Fillmore City, Utah Territory during the time of the Utah War. "The Deseret News began as a weekly newspaper in Salt Lake City on June 15, 1850, just three years after the Mormon pioneers founded the city. Established by the Church under the direction of Brigham Young, the News has had uninterrupted publication to the present" (Harold B. Lee Library, BYU). For a five-month period (May to September 1858) , The Deseret News was published in Fillmore City due to the advance of the U. S. Army on Salt Lake City, the location where the newspaper was normally published. The same month that this issue was published the U. S. Army marched into Salt Lake City. Within this issue is a proclamation by President James Buchanan acknowledging the insubordination of the Utah Territory and insisting that citizens of said territory submit to the laws of the Constitution and create a positive relationship with the rest of the nation. There are also articles pertaining to the U. S. Army's location and general intelligence. The Utah War arose from a decade of "rising hostility between Mormons and the federal government over issues ranging from governance and land ownership to plural marriage and Indian affairs, during which both Mormons and non-Mormons endured violence and privation." The Mormons had undergone many confrontations with various authorities as they searched for a place to settle but this was the first time they met with federal troops. A rare issue of this long standing newspaper provides us with a look back on an important time in Mormon history. Only two copies found at institutions as of November 2017. ; Folio 13" - 23" tall; 4 pp .

        The Drum's. The Tapestry Room. Weyers Cave. Central R. R. Augusta Va

      Richmond, Virginia: Edward Beyer, 1858. Tinted lithograph, 'Taken from Nature by Ed. Beyer', printed by W. Loeillot in Berlin. An exemplary print from one of the greatest American view books: `a major outstanding item' (Bennett)Edward Beyer was a German artist who visited the United States in the early 1850's. 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 were generally printed in black with, generally, two further colours.The cavern system was discovered in 1804 by 18-year-old Bernard Weyer, a young trapper, looking for his missing trap. He named it Weyer's Cave, after himself, and, after exploring it for two years, opened it for the public, the first show cave of the United State. Weyer's Cave is now called the Grand Caverns. It is located in the central Shenandoah Valley in the town of Grottoes, Virginia.'This cave is in Augusta County, seventeen miles North of Staunton, a short distance West of the Blue Ridge. It derives its name from Bernard Weyer, who discovered it in 1804, while hunting. With one exception, in extent, it is the largest Cave in the World... The Artist has selected the Tapestry and Drum Room for an Illustration, and which is perhaps the greatest of its Wonders. It gives forth, when struck on its walls, the deep sonourous sound of a bass drum... "the influence of 2,000 to 3,000 lights in these immense caverns is only such as to reveal the objects, without disturbing the solemn and sublime obscurity which sleeps in everything. Scarcely any scenes can awaken so many passions at once , and so deeply... I have had before, from other objects, one simple impression made with greater power; but I never had so many impressions made, and with so much power, before".' ( Description of the Album of Virginia... Illustrated Richmond, 1857).Deak writes of Beyer, "He was taken by the beauty of the Virginia landscape, particularly by the elegant settings of some of the region's watering places...Virginians responded warmly to Beyer'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." Deak praises Beyer's "delicate and precise style" and "characteristic refinement of proportion.".Cf. Bennett p.10; cf. Deak Picturing America 721; cf. Howes B413 ("b"); cf. Sabin 5125.

        Reflexões sobre o padroado portuguez no oriente, applicadas a proclamação pastoral do Rev. Fr. Angelico, Pro-Vigario em Bombaim, aos soldados catholicos romanos da mesma presidencia; por hum portuguez.

      Nova Goa, Na Imprensa Nacional, 1858. - 2 works in 1 volume. 4°, early plain blue-grey wrappers (some tears; spine defective). Some browning; occasional light foxing. In very good condition. 121 pp. [final page misnumbered 221 and corrected in manuscript]. *** FIRST EDITIONS. Both works deal with Portuguese patronage in the East, a question much debated after the 1838 papal bull that suppressed the dioceses of Cochim, Meliapor, Cranganor and Malacca. Cunha Rivara was impelled to write by a pastoral address of the Vicar General in Bombay, Fr. Angelicus, who announced in 1857 that the Goa clergy were no longer in communion with the Church and that no Catholic could attend their services without the loss of eternal salvation. Cunha Rivara was later appointed Comissãrio Regio to redefine the boundaries of Indian bishoprics belonging to the Real Padroado. An English translation of the Reflexões was printed in Madras, 1858, and of the Aditamentos in Madras, 1859.Cunha Rivara (1809-1879) was born in Arrayollos, where he began his studies. He continued his education in Evora and Coimbra, despite interruptions due to the Civil War. He later served in the Adminstração Geral de Évora, then took a chair in Philosophy at the Lyceu de Évora. A learned scholar, he was appointed Bibliothecario na Biblioteca Eborense in December of 1836. He continued serving the State, and in 1855 was appointed Secretario Geral do Governo do Estado da India, a post which he held until 1872. In addition to his role as public servant, Cunha Rivara was also a founding member of the Instituto Vasco da Gama. A prolific writer of many interests, he published works on linguistics, history, and politics and was a regular contributor to Panorama, Revista Litteraria, Boletim do Governo da India, and he was editor of the monthly Chronista de Tissuary from 1866-1869. He also published a catalogue of the manuscripts held in the library at Évora. *** Innocêncio IV, 83-84 and XII, 57-59. Biblioteca Nacional de Portugal, Joaquim Heliodoro da Cunha Rivara 45.

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1858. - Letterpress title and list of plates, otherwise engraved throughout. Fifty- three engraved plates, with tissue guards, fifty handcolored (forty-two of birds, eleven of mammals), occasional heightening with gum-arabic, by W.H. Dougal and others, after T.P. Peale (32), G.G. White (12), W.E. Hitchcock (6), and E. Sheppard (3). Folio. Contemporary three-quarter green morocco and black cloth, rebacked, retaining the original spine labels, minor scuffing and rubbing. Endpapers renewed, two modern bookplates on front pastedown, closed marginal tear to wolves plate, minor foxing to text leaves, scattered occasional light foxing and minor spotting to plates. Very good. "Masterpieces of hand-colored engraving" (McGrath): the plate volume to the first illustrated edition of this important and rare American natural history work, probably limited to no more than 150 copies. The complete work forms Volume VIII of the full set of reports on the United States Exploring Expedition, published in twenty- four volumes between 1844 and 1874.

Erste Ausgabe dieser wichtigen Arbeit zur Entwicklung der Kinetischen Gastheorie. - "In order to analyze the process (of molecular collisions), Clausius adopted a simplified model for his admittedly complicated molecule. He assumed that whatever the actual patterns on intermolecular forces, one could suppose that there is some advantage distance between the centers of molecules which would represent a general boundary between attractive and repulsive forces. If two molecules were to approach each other within that boundary, repulsion would generally occur. Thus the very complex problem of intermolecular action was reduced to a 'billiard ball' model" (DSB). - Clausius (1822-1888), Professor für Physik in Berlin, Zürich, Würzburg und Bonn, führte den Begriff der Entropie ein und hat sich besonders durch zwei Leistungen von eminenter historischer Bedeutung einen Namen gemacht: die exakte mathematische Formulierung des zweiten Hauptsatzes der Thermodynamik und die Begründung der kinetischen Gastheorie. - Stempel auf Titel.

        The Bible Exercise commenced at the Spingler Institute

      [New York], 1858. Handwritten college notebook comprised of 50 bound and 19 loosely inserted pages by Flora E. Smith, a student at one of the earliest women's colleges in the U.S. Quarter calf over lightly sunned purple cloth boards, blind embossed on front and rear cover; original paper label on front with author's name and date; hinges loose on front and back, with some loss to spine but text still holding tight; several pages excised at back causing small paper loss to rear pastedown. Internally clean, with ruled pages used for lists, charts, timelines, and note-taking associated with Smith's class on biblical and ecclesiastical history. A rare manuscript with excellent content from this early school founded to provide "a college for girls which should be the peer of Yale, Harvard, and Princeton" (Wellesley College Magazine). A near contemporary of the earliest seven sisters colleges, the Spingler Institute had "a reputation possessed by no other institution for women in America...[for using] the best methods and the best appointments...for the intellectual advancement" of young women (National Cyclopaedia of American Biography). Courses included science, mathematics, classical and modern languages, art, music, literature, history, and biblical and ecclesiastical studies. It was for this last program that Flora Smith composed her notebook. She proves to be a thoughtful and meticulous student, neatly dividing the Bible's books into categories ("The Pentateuch," "The Historical Books," "The Poetical Books," "The Prophetic Books," and "The New Testament") as well as writing bibliographic studies of versions of the Bible that consider their source languages and differences among their translations. By the middle of the notebook, Smith has developed charts and timelines, performing historiographical comparisons across the biblical texts to consider where events occur and to what extent they might overlap. In the later part of the book, she copies out and translates devotional poems such as "I Hold Still, from the German of Julius Sterm" and she appears to compose her own verse that borders on the romantic, as in the case of several inserted sonnets and a poem titled "Dream Land": "Shall I wake you in the morning? Strange and wonderful it seems/ That an earthly voice can reach you in the Land of Dreams..." Among the loosely inserted papers are handwritten test responses, written in ink in Smith's hand and corrected in pencil with the notations of source texts and verse numbers. With exceptional research contents across the fields of gender studies, the history of education, literature, biblical and religious history, and the history of women's education in America.

        Ichnology Of New England A Report On The Sandstone Of The Connecticut Valley, Especially Its Fossil Footmarks

      Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Printed by William White,, Boston: 1858 - Very good+ in blind embossed, dark green cloth covered boards with gilt text and a gilt emblem on the spine. A quarto of 12 3/8 by 9 3/8 inches with the cloth at the head of the spine lightly worn and with the cloth at the heel of the spine more heavily worn with some fraying and a 1/4" chip at the lower front corner of the spine. The cloth at the tips of the boards is worn through. The hinges and joints are tight and strong and there are no loose signatures. Except for the preliminaries, the textual portion of the contents (pages i through 199) are clean and largely free of foxing or tanning. The 3 fold-out tables show only occasional spots of foxing; the glossary and index only show foxing as a result of offsetting from the plate which follows; the hand-colored plate titled "The Moody Foot Mark in South Hadley" shows foxing in the margins and faintly on the upper half of the plate; the hand-colored fold-out map again shows foxing from offsetting from the adjoining plates; plates IV and V produced on heavier weigh paper show foxing in the margins; plates VI through XXXVII (which includes 21 fold-outs) are produced on light weight paper showing much less foxing which on most plates is nonexistent. The final 23 plates (XXXVIII through LX) are on heavier paper which again show light foxing primarily in the margins. The second free end page shows the following inscription: "Presented to Wm. Allen | by Edward Southworth, Jr. | Aug. 20th 1859." in a neat hand. 220 printed pages followed by the plates above enumerated. An attractive and certainly collectible copy of this seminal work describing in great detail the dinosaur tracks found, but also Hitchcock's summation of the "origin and nature of the sandstone" occurring in the Connecticut Valley.
