        CARTE DE MAURICE (CI-DEVANT ILE-DE-FRANCE) CONTENANT LA SITUATION DES PRINCIPALES SUCRERIES, LES ROUTES & LES LIMITES DES DIVERS QUARTIERS DE L'HE

      Port Louis: J. Maisonneuve, 1859.. Single sheet map, 25 1/2 x 21 inches. Old folds, some minor loss at folds, including in center of sheet. Several small losses at edges. Contemporary ink doodles on verso, resulting in some small instances of loss due to ink burn. Good. A remarkable, locally produced map of the island of Mauritius, off the coast of Africa, showing sugar plantations, roads, terrain, the city of Port Louis, and the several other small villages that dot the coast. The scale and quality of the map are a tribute to the remarkable local culture of books and printing which flourished on the island in the 19th century. James Pope- Hennessy, in his biography of his grandfather, at one time the Governor of the island, describes the many local bookstores and libraries. The French colonized the island, naming it "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British siezed the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce. Toussaint notes a second edition in 1848 but does not list this particular edition of the map, styled the fifth in a caption. TOUSSAINT F67 (ref).

        First appreciation and application of the Coriolis Force in meteorology] THE MOTIONS OF FLUIDS AND SOLIDS RELATIVE TO THE EARTH'S SURFACE [Complete in Seven Parts] In The Mathematical Monthly, Vol. I. 1859 pp. 140-148, 210-216, 300-307, 366-373, 397-406 and The Mathematical Monthly, Vol. II 1860 pp. 89-97, 339-346, 374-390.

      John Bartlett, Cambridge 1859 - dated 1859-1860. TWO VOLUMES. Offered are two Near Fine entire volumes of The Mathematical Monthly for 1859 and 1860 in modern brown leather spines and cloth boards with raised bands spines, gilt lettering spines, new endpapers. 8vos. In a series of papers published in his colleague J. D. Runkle's "Mathematical Monthly" in 1858 and 1859, then collected to form a separate pamphlet published in New York and London in 1860, Ferrel developed a general quantitative theory of relative motion on the earth's surface and applied it to winds and currents. His result, now known as Ferrel's law, was "That if a body is moving in any direction, there is a force, arising from the earth's rotation, which always deflects it to the right in the northern hemisphere and to the left in the southern" (1858). Ferrel's treatment was remarkable for its clarity and generality, and by continuing to develop his ideas in a series of publications extending over thirty years, he pioneered in the development of meteorology from a descriptive science to a branch of mathematical physics.Yet Ferrel had led in bringing sound physical principles, expressed with the tools of mathematical analysis, to bear on the largest problems of oceanic and atmospheric motion: thus at his death he was called "the most eminent meteorologist and one of the eminent scientific men that America has produced." This eminence came to Ferrel for "having given to the science of meteorology a foundation in mechanics as solid as that which Newton laid for astronomy." (DSB Vol. 4 p. 592).

        A History of the Birds of Europe, Not Observed in the British Isles 4 Vols. (with) Manuscript Ornithological Annotations By Captain (Philip) Savile G. Reid, FZS of the Royal Engineers

      London: Groombridge and Sons, 1859. In four volumes, dated 1859 (but Preface dated 1863), 1860, 1862, 1863; xv + 206 + iv + 203 + iv + 247 + vi + 250 + (1) errata pages; useful index at back of Vol. IV; we count 183 bird plates + 57 egg plates for a total of 240; color plates of various birds & bird eggs; PLEASE NOTE - the published number of plates according to Nissen and others indicates 238 plates as the appropriate count - in this set, according to the plate list found at the front of each volume, there are 2 additional plates at one listing, showing varieties of an observed bird and another listing with 1 additional plate; here, 2 plates are lacking, the frontis to Vol. II and one other, according to strict adherence to the list, which does not give a plate count for the bird egg plates; the author's Preface states "...I have at least, I think, accomplished a work which will be useful to my brother naturalists, and not entirely without influence in promoting the advancement of European ornithology..."; this set made especially interesting by the running commentary, notes and tipped-in materials of Captain (Philip) Savile G. Reid (1845 - 1915), whose ownership signature appears on all front endpapers with the date of 1870. He was a member of the British Ornithological Union, a Fellow of the Zoological Society and author of several publications concerning the birds of Bermuda, of Natal in South Africa as well as reports from Morocco and Teneriffe; he was a contributor to the British Museum collections and their publications and was a very respected and well-liked field researcher (see the Ibis obituary, Vol. 57 No. 2 for further commentary); he has corrected the volumes according the errata with his own markings in a neat black ink - along with adding marginalia in which he quotes other authors, offers his own observations of birds, habits, their eggs, especially from areas in which he is familiar - for instance, his posting to Gibraltar and work with ornithologist Col. Irby in 1871 - 1873 offered him much opportunity for accurate observation, which he details in these volumes; occasionally, he will dispute the authors' findings, as in noting a variation of bird coloring or size of egg, due to his own or colleague's findings; there are a couple of tipped- in articles from newspapers of the time as well, which relate to birding news of interest to Capt. Reid, as in this observation found in the section on the Lesser Kestrel, which he was familiar with from Gibraltar: "(found) In the ruins of the watch-towers along the sea-coast and also inland . A great many also build yearly on the Rock of Gibraltar itself, in the precipitous cliffs on the Mediterranean side..."; his notes and asides detail his passionate involvement in the ornithological world via his field work and personal observation and add a level of personal interactivity for the reader of Bree's work; front endpapers also with the bookplate of Dr. Bertel Bruun (1937 - 2011) Danish-American naturalist, international conservationist and neurologist, author of several birding guides; volumes approx. 6 1/2" x 10" approx. size; bound in dark green watered silk cloth, brown calf spines and corners, spines with simple gilt rules, red and green leather labels, gilt titled; edge, tips and spine ends wear, rubbing to boards; Volume I especially with soiling and cloth staining on back and leather chips & scrapes; Vol. II contents page with an old re-margining with paper at gutter and bottom edge, probably as the result of extensive use; some spotting and foxing, usually to endpapers; text and plates generally very clean and in very good condition; the set with good, solid appearance and utility.. First Edition. Leather. Good.

        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life

      London, John Murray, 1859. 8vo, ix, 502; 32 (publisherÕs advertisements, dated June 1859) pp. with a folding diagram facing p. 117. A remarkably good copy in the original publisherÕs blindstamped green cloth, backstrip lettered and decorated in gilt, binderÕs ticket of Edmonds & Remnants on rear paste-down, hinges invisibly repaired, title-page with vertical crease as usual, one or two very minor tears in text margins, preserved in a cloth box. First edition, a very good copy, with slight wear to the cloth as usual, of the single most important scientific book ever published. Ã’The publication of [On the Origin] ushered in a new era in our thinking about the nature of man. The intellectual revolution it caused and the impact it had on manÕs concept of himself and the world were greater than those caused by the works of Copernicus, Newton, and the great physicists of more recent times. . . . Every modern discussion of manÕs future, the population explosion, the struggle for existence, the purpose of man and the universe, and manÕs place in nature rests on DarwinÓ (Ernst Mayr). Dibner 199. Freeman 373. Garrison and Morton 220. Horblit 23b. Norman Library I, 594. Printing and the Mind of Man 344b. Note: 1250 copies were printed; they occur in various binding variants with no priority established and with various states of the adverts also with no priority established (June 1859 is generally seen as the earliest). Provenance: bookplate of P.W. Phipps (family name of the Barons Mulgrave): private collection Canada. This copy has never been sold at auction or through the trade.

        The South Australian System of Conveyancing by Registration of Title

      Adelaide: Register and Observer General Printing Office, 1859. Octavo, occasional pen and ink annotations, becoming a bit loose in the binding; but a very good copy in the original green printed wrappers with cloth spine, rubbed. An Australian on real estate (plus ça change). Uncommon Adelaide-printed work by Torrens on his ground-breaking work relating to land title. This was the first major exposition of Torrens Title, the design of which he had been working on in the late 1850s, leading to the publication of this work which not only "explained the system" (ADB), but also proposed Torrens' claim to sole authorship of the system. For four shillings, the work also included an index prepared by another Adelaide identity, Robert Gawler, then serving as solicitor for the Lands Titles Commissioners. This copy has a small run of marginalia, probably related to the book's early use in the "Reeds Titles Office" (as noted in ink on the front cover). Ferguson comments that the preface states how Torrens' 'interest in the question of a simpler system of conveyancing had been aroused', and it is amusing to note that the first major annotation changes "English gentleman" to "Irish & English" in the book's dedication to Sir Richard Graves MacDonnell.

        A Sixth Memoir upon Quantics," extracted from The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Vol. 149, Part I, 1859, pp. 61-90

      First edition of the seminal paper (extracted from the 1859 Philosophical Transactions) in which Arthur Cayley laid "the foundations of non-euclidean geometry" (Pierpont, "Cayley's Definition of Non-Euclidean Geometry," American Journal of Mathematics, Vol. 53, No. 1, January 1931, 117). In order to unite 'Metrical Geometry' and 'Projectice Geometry,' Cayley introduced metrics into projective geometry by means of a fixed, embedded conic called the absolute; in other words, he introduced 'imaginary' element to metrical properties. Cayley "he set himself the task of "establishing the notion of distance upon purely descriptive principles." He showed that, with the ordinary idea of distance, it can be rendered projective by reference to the circular points and a line at infinity -- and that the same is true of angles. Not content with this, he suggested a new definition of distance, as the inverse sine or cosine of a certain function of the coordinates; with this definition, the properties usually known as metrical become projective properties, having reference to a certain conic, called by Cayley the Absolute. (The circular points are, analytically, a degenerate conic, so that ordinary Geometry forms a particular case of the above.) He proves that, when the Absolute is an imaginary conic, the Geometry so obtained for two dimensions is spherical Geometry" (Russell, An Essay on the Foundations of Geometry). "The fundamental notions in metrical geometry are the distance between two points and the angle between two lines. Replacing the concept of distance by another, also involving "imaginary" elements, Cayley provided the means for unifying Euclidean geometry and the common non-Euclidean geometries into one comprehensive theory" (Bell in Men of Mathematics). CONDITION & DETAILS: Cambridge: The Royal Society, 1859. Extracted from The Philosophical Transactions, Vol. 149, Part I, 1859, pp. 61-90. Clean, bright, and in near fine condition.

Its success was immediate and then unequalled: twenty thousand copies were sold in the first year, fifty-five thousand by 1864 and two hundred and seventy thousand by the end of the century. It was translated into almost every foreign language, but the proof of its success which most delighted Smiles was the number of letters attesting to its usefulness which he received from artisans - the class to whom it was directed - all over the world.î (PMM, p. 346)Printing and the Mind of Man 346.HBS 66787.$2,500

        On Liberty.

      London, 1859. 8vo. Uncut in the original full cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Very neatly rebacked, preserving the original spine with gilt lettering. A small stamp to title-page and an old label removed, causing a bit of wear to the paper, far from affecting imprint. A very nice copy. 207, (1) pp. + 8 pp. advertisements.. First edition of Mill's radical and enormously influential work on liberty, which "remains his most widely read book. It represents the final stage in the growth of Utilitarian doctrine, and its central point is one which had escaped both Mill's father and Bentham." (PMM 345)."On Liberty" constitutes one of the most important documents of political liberalism. The ideas presented in this hugely influential work have remained the basis of much liberal political thought ever since its appearance, and the work has remained in print continuously ever since its initial publication. To this day, a copy of On Liberty has been passed to the president of the British Liberals, and then Liberal Democrats, as a symbol of office and succession from the party that Mill helped found.In "On Liberty" Mill famously supports the individual's sovereignty over himself and presents the basis for liberty. It is here that one of the most fundamental statements of liberal thought is presented for the first time, namely "over himself, over his own body and mind, the individual is sovereign". "On Liberty" constitutes a defense of the rights of the individual against the state, a justification of the freedom of the individual in opposition to what Mill calls the "tyranny of the majority". It is also in this work that the famous "Harm principle", or the principle of liberty, which stands at the very core of all liberal thought, is presented for the first time. "In "On Liberty" (1859) Mill defended the importance of individual freedom of thought and action, arguing that the individual is the best judge of his or her own good and that society benefits from the experimentation that occurs in an atmosphere of liberty." (" International Encyclopedia of the Social Sciences". Ed. William A. Darity, Jr.. Vol. 8. 2nd ed., 2008. p 553)."Mill realized that the "greatest good" of the community is inseparable from the liberty of the individual. Hitherto, liberty had always been considered relative, in relation to tyranny or oppression: Mill extended tyranny to include a custom-ridden majority, and declared that "the sole end for which mankind is justified in interfering with liberty of action is self-protection". [...] His arguments for freedom of every kind through speech have never been improved on. He was the first to recognize the tendency of a democratically elected majority to tyrannize over a minority, and his warning against it has a contemporary ring: "We can never be sure that the opinion we are endeavouring to stifle is a false opinion; and, if we were sure, stifling it would be an evil still"." (PMM 345). "Mill's son was to prove Britain's preeminent, or at least most famous, political philosopher of the nineteenth century, less for his writings on utilitarianism than for his System of Logic and his essay On Liberty, still today liberalism's chief manifesto." (Robert Wokler, in: "Europe 1789-1914: Encyclopedia of the Age of Industry and Empire". Ed. John Merriman and Jay Winter. Vol. 5. 2006. p. 2393)

        A TALE OF TWO CITIES

      1859. [complete in Harper's Weekly] In Three Books - Splendidly Illustrated. In: Harper's Weekly. A Journal of Civilization. New York: Harper & Brothers, May 7 - December 3, 1859. All of the weekly issues for 1859, bound up into one volume bound in three-quarter brown calf and marbled boards. First Appearance in America of one of Dickens's best-known tales. In England, this tale appeared weekly in All The Year Round between the end of April and the end of November 1859, and also in eight-in-seven monthly parts from June through December of the same year; the book edition was issued there on 21 November. In the United States, Harper & Brothers paid for the right to issue this novel in Harper's Weekly, where it did appear serially in 31 issues from May 7th through December 3rd 1859; John McLenan prepared 31 chapter vignettes plus 33 other illustrations for this serialization. (T. B. Peterson of Philadelphia in turn bought the illustrations and, by arrangement with Harper's, published A TALE OF TWO CITIES in book form, in numerous formats, upon the end of serialization -- about two weeks after the U.K. book edition.)~This 16-inch-tall volume includes all of the weekly issues for 1859, beginning with that of January 1 and ending with that of December 31. In addition to A TALE OF TWO CITIES, the volume includes the beginning of Wilkie Collins's THE WOMAN IN WHITE (which immediately followed A TALE OF TWO CITIES in All The Year Round). It also includes many other fascinating articles and illustrations of the day, just two years before the commencement of the American Civil War. (For example, there are numerous stirring illustrations from battles of the Second Italian war of Independence, a.k.a. the Franco-Austrian war, then raging -- and in the final issue of the year, there is a great double-page illustration of the the new U.S. Senate chamber in session.) Also included are numerous illustrations by Winslow Homer -- although of course these issues do not include his upcoming wartime ones.~These issues are bound in recent three-quarter dark-brown calf, with much-earlier marbled boards. Condition is near-fine (very minor external wear, a few leaves torn or with pieces lacking but not affecting A TALE OF TWO CITIES).

        Narrative of Shipwreck of the "Admella"

      Melbourne: J.H. Moulines and Co. for the Committee of the 'Admella', November, 1859. Octavo, frontispiece and folding map; scattered foxing, yet a good sound copy in original blind blocked plum cloth with dramatic gilt vignette to front board bearing the slogan 'Hope to the Last.'. Only edition: the harrowing tale of the wreck of the steamship Admella, lost on the South Australian coast. This book was published by a committee appointed to collect funds and care for the survivors: it offers a detailed account of events as they unfolded, interspersed with firsthand testimonies of some of the survivors and their rescuers. 'In terms of human suffering, the wreck of the steamship Admella is ranked by historians as one of the worst in human history' writes Jack Loney in his sweeping account of the appalling disaster which claimed the life of 89 of the 113 passengers and crew. Before dawn on the 6 August 1859, the Admella ran aground on a reef near Cape Northumberland on the South Australian coast. The steamer sat uneasily on the crest before violently disintegrating into three sections, leaving the vast majority of the 19 women and 14 children aboard stranded in the bow section with only a handful of crew and male passengers. Only one female passenger survived the tragedy. An unusually violent ocean hindered escape attempts and stopped two passing vessels from recognising the perilous state of the Admella. Eventually desperate crewmen crafted a raft using a meat cleaver to chop wooden sections, eventually crossing the mile of treacherous ocean to shore and alerting the Cape Northumberland lighthouse-keeper. A remarkable series of rescue attempts unfolded as locals, fishermen and sailors from nearby vessels risked all to save the survivors whose numbers diminished daily from cold and exposure. It is remarkable testament to the grim determination of the rescuers that 24 souls were saved in this appalling disaster.

        Ein Blatt aus dem Inselleben, 1859

      1859. Bleistift und Aquarell auf Papier, unten rechts monogrammiert (ligiert): "JN 59.", unten mittig bezeichnet: "Ein Blatt aus dem Inselleben" und "Heinlein", verso bezeichnet: "Heinlein im Kreise seiner Freunde", 19,6 x 26,4 cm. Ganz anders als Heinrich Heinlein oder sein Lehrer Johann Gottfried Steffan hat sich Julius Noerr in seinem Werk auf die bayerische Landschaft ruhigeren Charakters konzentriert. Die wilde Natur der Berge tauschte er gegen die sanften Ufer- und Seenlandschaften und schloss sich damit eher an Eduard Schleich und Adolf Lier an. Unsere Zeichnung vermittelt etwas von dieser Idee, Natur als Zufluchtsort des Menschen zu verstehen. Gerade in Zeiten der immer weiter voranschreitenden Industrialisierung und "Verstädterung" der Landschaft wurde der naturbelassene Flecken Erde zum Kontrapunkt des Stadtlebens. Julius Noerr schildert hier eine solche "Fluchtsituation": Drei Männer und vier Frauen haben sich im Schatten eines Baumes versammelt. Die zentrale Figur, in der man anhand der rückseitigen Aufschrift Heinrich Heinlein erkennen darf, wird mit allerlei Blattwerk bekränzt und überhäuft. Allerdings entbehrt die Zeichnung nicht einer Brise Spott: Die huldvolle Geste der Dame links sowie die Ãœberfülle an Bekränzungsmaterial legen die Skurrilität der Szene offen. Aber gerade dies macht die Zeichnung als Zeugnis aus dem Künstlerleben so interessant.
