        Ph. Fr. von Siebold's letzte Reise nach Japan 1859-1862 ... von seinem ältesten Sohne.Berlin, Kisak Tamai, 1903. 8vo (22.5 x 14 cm). With title-page in Japanese and German, 2 half-tone plates showing photographic portraits of Philip von Siebold (1 with his son Alexander) and 3 photographic views in the text. Original publisher's printed cloth-covered paper wrappers, with publisher's advertisements printed on paste-downs.

      Cordier, Japonica, col. 477; not in Nipponalia. Rare first edition of the account of Siebold's second and final journey to, and stay in, Japan, from 1859 till 1861, written by his eldest son, Alexander von Siebold (1846-1911), who accompanied his father Philip Franz von Siebold (1796-1866) on the trip and gives a lively account of their experiences. They travelled first to Batavia and then to Japan, where they stayed in Von Siebold's home Narutaki near Nagasaki. Von Siebold practised medicine there as he had in the 1820s, and many of his old patients and students came to visit him. Von Siebold also continued to search for material for his botanical collection. Alexander's account informs the reader about religious customs and literature, his own experiences in learning to speak Malayan and Japanese, and mastering the difficult art of writing Japanese using the Chinese "kan" (kanji) characters, also discussing the Japanese hiragana and katakana syllabary systems. Besides the four pages of advertisements (by Kisak Tamai and Foek) following the main text, the paste-downs contain further Kisak Tamai advertisements.Slightly browned, but otherwise in very good condition. Wrappers slightly soiled.

        Faust Opéra en Cinq Actes, de MMrs. Jules Barbier & Michel Carré... Partition Piano & Chant, Arrangée par Léo Delibes Prix: 15 F. net. [Piano-vocal score]

      Paris: Choudens [PN A.C. 664.], 1859. First Edition. "The very rare first edition in opéra-comique form with dialogue was published in the middle of May 1859 according to an advertisement in Le Ménestrel and was the only one to appear thus. It was only on sale for a few months." Hopkinson: Notes on the Earliest Editions of Gounod's Faust, p. 246. Fuld p. 510. Faust was first performed at the Théâtre Lyrique in Paris on March 19th 1859 in a version with spoken dialogue; recitatives were added in 1860, and a ballet in 1869. The libretto by Barbier and Carre is based on Goethe, but focuses on the love story between Faust and Marguerite. "The historical importance of Faust is that it sounded a new note in French music. The conventional pomposities of the grand opera which then dominated the stage were superseded by a more intimate and poetic approach. The fashion Gounod set was one of conversational exchange rather than declamation." James Harding, Gounod, p. 114.. Large octavo. Quarter modern brown morocco with patterned boards. 1f. (recto decorative lithographic title by P. de Grauzat printed in black, with portraits of Marguerite, Faust, and Méphistophélès, verso blank), 1f. (recto named cast list and table of contents), 224 pp. Named cast includes Earbot, Balanqué, Reynald, Cibot, Carvalho, Faibre, and Duclos. With publisher's small oval handstamp to lower right corner of title. Spine slightly abraided. Occasional light foxing and intralinear marks in pencil; title very slightly trimmed at lower margin.

        TO THE PUBLIC. FACTS AGAINST ASSERTIONS--- PROOF AGAINST DENUNCIATIONS.

      [Galveston?]: 1859 - Folio sheet, folded to 8-3/8" x 11-1/4". [4]pp, each page printed in three columns. Toned. Old fold lines, a couple of short tears [no text loss] and a few pinholes [no text loss]. A rare, apparently unrecorded imprint. Good+. Signed in type by Andrew Neill at the end and dated, also in type, "August 5th '59." Neill was a Texas lawyer who had fought in its War of Independence. Engaged also in politics, he lost his election for Lieutenant Governor in 1855. His papers are at the University of Texas. Neill opposed Thomas Waul's run for Congress against Andrew Hamilton in 1859. Waul, a lawyer and plantation owner, would become a Confederate Congressman and a soldier for the Confederacy. [See, Handbook of Texas]. Neill says that Waul's "conduct has been illiberal, ungentlemanly, and cowardly." Buttressing his charges with documentation from newspaper accounts, Neill charges that Waul had pillaged an estate "of which he was trustee," taking for himself "some of the slaves, that belonged to the estate." Some of those slaves were the subject of sales transactions between Waul and Robert E. Lee. Neill expands on the evidence supporting his assertions, and denounces Waul's chicanery.Not in Eberstadt, Sabin, Decker, Raines, Rader, Graff. As of March 2016 we do not locate this rarity on OCLC or the online sites of AAS, Yale, Harvard, SMU, U TX., NYPL, Newberry, Library of Congress.

        Circoscrizione Ecclesiastica nel Regno delle Due Sicilie

      Napoli 1859 - Progettata dal Marzolla in 12 fogli ed annunciata nel 1857, la carta delle "Circoscrizione Ecclesiastica del Regno delle Due Sicilie" l'opera venne pubblicata solo postuma, a causa della morte dell'autore, nel maggio del 1858. Tra il 1859 ed il 1860 una decina di fogli vennero alla luce per cura dell'architetto Luigi Manzella, che seguì il Marzolla alla direzione dello Stabilimento Geografico. La fine dell'impero Borbonico, nel maggio del 1860, e lo smantellamento dello Stabilimento Geografico (1880 circa), impedì successive ristampe di queste carte, che sono pertanto rarissime.

Collaborations de Xavier Aubryet, Edouard Bourdet, Jules Moinaux, Eugène Furpille, E. et J. de Goncourt, A. de Launay, J. Claretie, Charles Monselet et Henri de Pène (d'après Vaudun). Le journal se consacre à la chronique fantaisiste ainsi définie dans le premier numéro : « C'est une histoire invraisemblable racontée dans un style impossible ». D'après J.-F. Vaudun (Gazetiers et gazettes. Histoire critique et anecdotique de la presse parisienne, Paris, 1860) « la Silhouette a passé comme une ombre : on n'a jamais su le fin mot de MM. Noriac, Scholl et de Courcy, ses trois pères spirituels. Cette assemblée constituante de la Silhouette s'est dissoute au bout de huit numéros. Les antiquaires qui s'amuseront à fouiller dans les décombres du journalisme contemporain chercheront peut-être la raison de cette publication. La Silhouette de qui ? de quoi? Abrégeons leurs fouilles. Ce journal n'a été qu'un vide-poche. Jules Noriac, ex-rédacteur en chef du Figaro-Programme, ex-rédacteur du Figaro, ex-sous-officier. Il a fini par trouver sa véritable voie : le roman. Le 101e Régiment et la Bêtise humaine, sont deux francs succès et deux belles vengeances. Jules de Noriac a de l'esprit, de la jeunesse, du coeur. Courage donc, en avant, et bonne chance ! Charles de Courcy. fils, gandin en tous genres, modiste de lettres, d'après la nouvelle classification donnée dernièrement par M. Babou. Signalement particulier : Ce jolie garçon, quand il parle, se contemple dans les glaces. Daniel Lambert, ce drame qui a réussi à l'Odéon devant un auditoire lymphatique, a ajouté des embellissements à sa fatuité d'écrivain. Aurélien Scholl, fondateur du Satan, en 1854. auteur des Esprits malades, des Lettres à mon domestique, de Nouvelles à la main, et d'une bluette en un acte : Hosalinde. M. Scholl tenait dans la Silhouette la spécialité de l'article-cancan ; il y épluchait le théâtre et le boudoir, et probablement, en sa qualité de confident de ces dames, il imprimait des réflexions comme celles-ci : Pourquoi aime-t-on ? Parce qu'on s'ennuie, parce qu'on a bien diné. ». [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Gurney was the only son of Joseph John Gurney of Earlham Hall, Norwich, Norfolk. At the age of ten he was sent to a private tutor at Leytonstone near the Epping Forest, where he met Henry Doubleday, and commenced his first natural history collection. From there he moved to the Friends' School at Tottenham, and whilst there met William Yarrell. At the age of seventeen he joined the family's banking business in Norwich.nnGurney published a number of articles in The Zoologist on the birds of Norfolk. He also commenced a collection of birds of prey. In 1864 he published Part I. of his Descriptive Catalogue of this collection, and in 1872 he edited The Birds of Damara Land from the notes of his friend Charles John Andersson.nnBetween 1875 and 1882 he produced a series of notes in The Ibis on the first volume of the Catalogue of Birds in the British Museum, and in 1884 brought out a List of Diurnal Birds of Prey, with References and Annotations. The archives of Cambridge University Museum of Zoology contains five volumes of correspondence between Alfred Newton and Gurney, who was a founding member of the Norfolk Naturalists Trust. For the last twenty years of his life he resided at the family's home at Northrepps, near Cromer.nHis son, John Henry Gurney Jr., was also an ornithologist, and his great great grandson, Henry Richard Gurney of Heggatt Hall has continued the family tradition. The southern African race of the black-necked grebe, Podiceps nigricollis gurneyi, was named by South African zoologist and author Austin Roberts in 1919 in honour of the father and son. John Henry Gurney Jr.'s daughter Agatha Gurney (1881–1937) married Sir Edward Ruggles-Brise, 1st Baronet.

        Anatomie comparée transcendante. Principes d'embryogénie, de zoogénie et de tératogénie

      Paris, F. Didot, 1859. 1859, 1859, , fort in-4, XV-942 pages, 25 planches en lithographie, demi-basane verte de l'époque, dos lisse et fileté, Toute première édition, rare, de cet ouvrage de tératologie du Dr Serres, tel que paru ; il est exactement conforme à la manière dont il sera publié en 1860 dans les "Mémoires de l'Académie des sciences de l'Institut impérial de France", c'est à dire qu'il ne comprend ni les pages "bis", ni la planche numérotée 26 qui ont servi à augmenter une autre édition, mise en vente ultérieurement (bien que sous la date de 1859). Dans cette dernière édition augmentée, le titre, la table des matières et l'errata du premier tirage ont été remployés, de telle sorte que ces exemplaires passent souvent pour être des originaux de 1859 : mais c'est bien le nôtre qui est l'original, avec 25 planches et non 26, et sans les pages 206-1 à 206-10 et 938-1 à 938-7. De surcroît, contrairement à ce que l'on peut lire parfois, ce texte n'a pas paru auparavant dans les "Mémoires de l'Académie des sciences", mais ultérieurement, en 1860. Cet exemplaire comporte en outre un envoi au Dr Falret "en témoignage de l'estime scientifique et de l'amitié de l'auteur". Augustin Serres (1786-1868), anatomiste et embryologiste, fut l'un des collaborateurs de Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire dont il partagea et développa les théories. Il considérait que "l'embryologie est une anatomie comparée transitoire" ; ses principaux contradicteurs, Baer et Milne-Edwards, ne parvinrent pas à modifier ses positions. Il les exprime définitivement dans cet ouvrage, le dernier qu'il composa. Son intérêt pour la tératologie, dans son aspect scientifique, se manifestait déjà avec la publication du grand volume in-folio des Recherches d'anatomie transcendante pathologique, paru en 1832, et dont les planches d'illustrations sont restées célèbres. DSB, XII, 316. Cachet ex-libris de Jules Falret (1824-1902), fils du célèbre alinéniste Jean-Pierre Falret ; Jules Falret fut de même un très bon médecin, réputé. Il dirigea, à la suite de son père l'asile de Vanves. Charnières frottées. Rousseurs aux planches et petites déchirures sans manque à certaines
