DARWIN, Charles, & Alfred Russel Wallace.
London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans & Roberts, and Williams and Norgate, , 1858. In: Journal of the Proceedings of the Linnean Society. Zoology. Vol. III, No. 9, Sept. 1858. Octavo, pp. iv, 198. Mid-20th-century marbled boards by Zaehnsdorf for C. Scribner's Sons, New York, black morocco spine label. Light rubbing to boards, some foxing to title and chiefly marginal elsewhere, very good. The first published statement of the theory of evolution in its original journal appearance. Following his return from his voyage aboard the Beagle, during which he had made the observations and gathered the specimens that would provide the data for his groundbreaking conclusions, Charles Darwin spent more than two decades formulating his theory. He was near completion of his great work On the Origin of Species when he was sent a manuscript on species change by the young naturalist Alfred Russel Wallace. It read much like an abstract of the book he was still compiling. In a compromise that would give both of the scientists a measure of priority, it was agreed that Wallace's paper and some of Darwin's writings showing his own discovery of natural selection would be read at the same Linnean Society meeting, on 1 July 1858. The journal combines two contributions by Darwin with one by Wallace. Following the introduction by Charles Lyell and Joseph Hooker is "Extract from an unpublished work on Species by C. Darwin, consisting of a portion of a Chapter entitled 'On the Variation of Organic Beings in a state of Nature; on the Natural Means of Selection; on the Comparison of Domestic Races … [Click Below for Full Description]

CHABAUD, Louis-Felix
[Paris], 1858. Very good, one or two edge knocks and some very slight rubbing.. Bronze medal, 51 mm. diameter, "ses amis souscripteurs" obverse and "Paul Gaimard" reverse, lettered "Chabaud" under the Gaimard bust. Rare: a fine medallion issued to the friends of Joseph-Paul Gaimard who had subscribed to a statue in his memory. Gaimard was one of the most important scientists to sail on any of the French grands voyages, a veteran of both the Freycinet and Dumont d'Urville expeditions and the author of a series of highly significant monographs on the zoology of Australia and the Pacific.Joseph-Paul Gaimard (1793-1858) made two major circumnavigations, the first with Louis de Freycinet (1817-1820) and again with Jules Dumont d'Urville (1826-1829). The second voyage almost killed Gaimard, and he felt lucky to make it home to Marseilles. Together with his lifelong friend Jean René Constant Quoy, Gaimard published several important works, notably the zoological atlases for the official accounts of both the Freycinet and Dumont d'Urville voyages in which he had taken part, as well as working on a similar volume based on the discoveries made on the Duperrey voyage as well. In the late 1820s Gaimard, a qualified doctor and member of l'Académie de médecine, researched the cholera morbus, travelling particularly into Russia to study the effects of the disease (see his Du choléra-morbus en Russie, Paris, 1832). He remained very close to his former commander Freycinet (a large suite of letters from Gaimard to Freycinet are now in the NLA) and happened to be back in Paris in 1832 when … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tempsky, G. F. von
London: Longman, Brown, Green, Longmans, & Roberts, 1858. First edition. Octavo, pp [xvi], 436, publisher's list; with 5 chromolithographs (one double-page) and 11 wood engravings, out of text, and a folding map showing his route, hand-colored in outline. Von Tempsky (1828 - 68) was of Prussian descent, but left Prussia at the age of 18 he came to the Mosquito Coast (coastal region of present-day Nicaragua) -- then controlled by the British -- to lead a life of adventure. He mined in the California gold-fields, unsuccessfully, and returned to Nicaragua to resume his life there. It is his long trip back through Mexico and Guatemala that he wrote about in his book Mitla (Zapotec ruins outside Oaxaca, Mexico), which is full of his adventures, great sense of elan and good eye for detail. (In the preface he apologizes for daring to write in the English language rather than German, but his English is quite up to the task.) He later went to Australia and New Zealand to mine gold and, it seems, to have more adventures. He was a skilled amateur artist, and it is his own water-color sketches that are the basis for the fine chromolithographs and other illustrations: the coloring is spectacular. Binding is the original crimson blind-stamped publsher's cloth, somewhat faded and stained. Text, map and images are unusually clean. Very good copy.

HUGO Victor
" - Hachette , Paris 1858, 11x18cm, relié. - Nouvelle édition comportant un préambule original. Reliure en demi chagrin marron, dos à quatre nerfs sertis de filets noirs ornés de caissons noirs agrémentés en leurs centres de fleurons dorés, discrètes restaurations sur les mors, plats de cartonnage marron, gardes et contreplats de papier à la cuve, reliure de l'époque. Ex-libris manuscrit à la plume en regard de la page de faux-titre. Précieux envoi autographe signé de Victor Hugo à Jules Janin. Les rapports entre Jules Janin - l'un des critiques littéraires les plus influents de l'époque notamment au Journal des Débats - et Victor Hugo furent, à leurs débuts, conflictuels. Pendant longtemps il n'eut de cesse dans ses critiques littéraires d'esquinter Victor Hugo, notamment en 1827, le « prince des critiques » se moqua du Dernier jour d'un condamné et en publia une parodie intitulée L'Âne mort ou la femme guillotinée. A la sortie de Marion Delorme, il alla même jusqu'à estimer que le dramaturge « n'entend[ait] rien à l'expression des passions ». Cependant, au tournant des années 1850, lors de l'exil d'Hugo, Janin se montra solidaire du proscrit et les deux sommités littéraires débutèrent l'échange d'une correspondance. L'envoi sur cet exemplaire de la nouvelle édition d'Odes et ballades est un témoignage de la réconciliation entre ces deux célébrités des lettres françaises. Bel exemplaire, en reliure du temps, enrichi d'un rare envoi autographe de Victor Hugo à l'un des ténors de la critique littéraire.- Photos sur www.Edition-originale.com - [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION … [Click Below for Full Description]

All'uscita di Marion Delorme, ha anche stimato che il drammaturgo "non intende [va] nulla a che l'espressione di passioni."

Porter, Whitworth
Longman, Green and Co, London, 1858. Octavo. In two volumes. Volume I (Palestine-Rhodes) 518 pages, photographs, engravings; Volume II, (Malta) 522 pages, (6)pp. publisher's ads and a 16pp. catalog from Bicker's and Son's, index map of Malta (folding). Unlike many of the later edited versions, Major Porter conducted original research and because of his status was given access of unpublished documents in the Record Office. The order was formed in the eleventh century but was expelled from Malta by Bonaparte in 1798. He traces its development from a mere charitable body of religious men to a great military and political organization that transferred its operations from the plains of Palestine to the Mediterranean Sea. The author's military skills reflect much skill in his descriptions of battles and sieges. The two Sieges of Rhodes and the heretic defense of Malta are considered the best accounts of those events. The appendix has included numerous important documents, including a list of the Grand-Masters. A very nice copy bound in a newer 3/4 blue morocco over marbled paper covered boards, raised bands with compartments lettered and decorated in gilt, top edges gilt. A very handsome set with some light flaking of outer page edges not extending to the text. Light stamp from the disbanded Long Island Historical Society. Very nice. [Attributes: First Edition]

Iserlohn, J. Bädeker, 1858. Very large (72.0 x 180.0 cm) folding lithographed geological map in 13 different colours with three "Quer-Profile" (profiles) also hand-coloured, mounted on linen. Preserved in a contemporary (perhaps original) pebbled cloth binding with marbled flyleaves, and red morocco label with gilt title on the spine. A very rare, very early geological map of the most important coal-bearing region of Germany, which subsequently became the most important industrial area of Europe. In fact it marks the birth of Germany as an economical power. Surprisingly, this very accurate map is not recorded in any bibliography. A 19th century Parisian publisher/bookshop label mounted on verso; French title Carte geologique du bassin de la Ruhr on the spine. A few faint spots and some very light, marginal toning.

ALLOM, Thomas, & George Newenham Wright.
London & New York: The London Printing and Publishing Company (Limited), [1858–9]. 2 volumes bound as 1, large quarto (271 x 212 mm). Contemporary green half morocco, spine lettered in gilt, marbled sides, endpapers and edges. Victorian ownership inscription to front free endpaper and additional loosely inserted note of bequest. Extremities lightly worn, contents often foxed but plates clean, repair to recto of frontispiece, last few pages of vol. I stained with the plate facing p.162 torn and taped on the verso. Overall a very good copy. Engraved frontispieces, vignette title pages, 160 steel engravings, 3 hand-coloured maps. First revised and expanded edition, bound from the parts. Allom and Wright had already co-operated to produce an illustrated account of China in 1843, one year after the First Opium War ended, at a time of great fascination regarding China amongst the British public. The present work was published in the interlude of the Second Opium War (1856–1860), after the treaty of Tianjin in June 1858, and prior to the war flaring up again in the summer of the subsequent year. Once more, its publication marked increased British interest in the vast empire which they were defeating with relative ease.

HAFIZ, Shams al-Din Muhammad.) ROSENZWEIG-SCHWANNAU, Vincenz, Ritter von.
Vienna: K. K. Hof- und Staatsdruckerei, 1858-64. 3 volumes octavo bound as 2 (224 × 138 mm). Contemporary red hard-grained morocco spine and tips, marbled boards, title gilt direct to the spine, edges lightly sprinkled brown, very pale orange yellow surface-paper endpapers, black linen hinges. A little shelf-wear, tips rubbed through, very pale toning, a very good set. Attractive chromolithographic illuminated "half-title" to each, Persian and German texts printed on facing pages. First edition of this important translation, well-represented institutionally but far from common on the market. "The name of Hafez is closely associated with that of Johann Wolfgang von Goethe in German literature. This is directly attributable to the status Goethe accords Hafez in his West-östlicher Divan, first published in 1819. It is because of Goethe's work that since the early 19th century the Di-van of Hafez has been an important source within the framework of "international literature" The first complete German translation was made by the Austrian orientalist and diplomat, Joseph von Hammer-Purgstall (1774-1856). This translation, which is still regarded as one of the most important works in German, began to appear in 1812 Hammer's translation was highly influential on Goethe's understanding of Hafez. Its effects were such that all of the German translations of Hafez made in the second half of the 19th century were indebted to Goethe's West-östlicher Divan Between 1854 and 1858, Herman Brockhaus (1806-77), then professor of Indo-Iranian languages at Leipzig, published the first complete t … [Click Below for Full Description]

BÖTTGER, Georg (1821-1901)
Munich, 1858. 11 large-format collodion dry plate photographs, mounted on card accordion-style with linen joints to form a 360 degree panoramic view of Munich, titled on the mount below the image and with the photographer's name in contemporary manuscript at the lower right. Overall size: 20 3/4 x 178 inches. Folds into a contemporary green cloth-backed box with gilt edges Provenance: Ludwig II (contemporary manuscript inscription on a small sheet affixed inside the front cover of the box) Among the earliest photographic panoramic city views ever accomplished. Taken from the tower of St. Peter's Church on the occasion of the 700 anniversary of the city, Böttger's panorama is the first such panoramic photograph of Munich. Georg Böttger (1821-1901) began his career as an engraver and lithographer, taking up photography circa 1850. His earliest photographic works were portraits and architectural studies, the latter particularly including monuments dedicated to Ludwig I and II. In 1854, he participated in the Deutsche Industrieausstellung, and would both teach photography and sell photographic equipment. In the 1860s he would photographically document bridge and railroad engineering projects in Germany, and in 1872 be named the official photographer of the Bavarian royal family. The present panorama is by far his most famous image, being among the largest photographs accomplished to that date, the earliest 360 degree photographic city view, and among the earliest photographic panoramas ever taken (preceded only by a panorama of Paris by Bisson freres in 1855 … [Click Below for Full Description]
