        The Octavo Nature-Printed British Ferns: Being Figures and Descriptions of the Species and Varieties of Ferns Found in the United Kingdom

      London: Bradbury and Evans, 1859-1860. xiv, 254; xi, 368, 114 tinted plates. . HB. 2 vols, 8vo, orig. cloth, gt, recased, lightly rubbed. Some scattered foxing. Vg set. Armorial book-plates of Julia Warde Aldam of Hooton Pagnell Hall.. Octavo edition. Nature printing by Henry Bradbury. Vol. I - Polypodium to Lastrea; Vol. II - Athyrium to Ophioglossum.Henry Bradbury (1831-1860) was senior partner in the firm of Bradbury & Evans, publishers of ‘PunchÂ’, the ‘FieldÂ’, and the ‘Daily NewsÂ’. Very well known for high quality illustrated work, the firm was awarded a Prize Medal at the Great Exhibition in 1851. In search for profitable business, Bradbury travelled to Austria where he visited the innovative Viennese Printing House Staatsdruckerei, a firm responsible for inventing and patenting the technique of nature-printing, a process whereby natural objects are impressed into metal plates, from which electrotypes are taken that can be used in relief printing. Upon his return to Britain, Bradbury claimed that he invented the technique, and though he clearly plagiarised the process, he brilliantly created a new market in British publishing, combining a little known cutting edge printing method with the growing Victorian interest in natural history. The 1850s were the highpoint of the Victorian fern craze, and since ferns were particularly well suited for nature printing, Bradbury decided to launch his first major project on the subject, and for this purpose, he hired Thomas Moore, Curator of the Chelsea Physic Garden, ‘the supreme and unchallenged high priest of the [fern] cultÂ’ (Allen, 1969), to write the text. Following the original folio edition of 1855-6, ‘The Octavo Nature-Printed British FernsÂ’ was published 1859-60. With this edition Bradbury succeeded in making nature printing affordable. Bradbury was planning other books on ferns, with texts by Moore, when his suicide in late 1860 brought an end not only to his life, but to also to his printing process, which was not used again in Britain. (Cave, 2010, ‘Impression of NatureÂ’).

        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. 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.

        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life [Unrecorded Variant Title Page]

      London John Murray [through 1861] 1859 Third Edition (seventh thousand) of the "most influential scientific work of the nineteenth century" (Grolier 100 Science) and "certainly the most important biological book ever written." (Freeman) 8vo: xix,[1],538pp (including unrecorded variant title page), with single leaf of advertisements and folding lithographed diagram by William West, charting Darwin's views of possible sequences of evolution. Original green sand-grain cloth, spine lettered in gilt, covers with decorative panels blocked in blind, brown clay-coated end papers, edges untrimmed. Variant "b" binding (without full point after "MURRAY" on the spine). An excellent example of this rare issue, recased in the original cloth binding (not rebacked), with spine ends skillfully restored and crease to spine carefully repaired, now barely visible. Minor wear to cloth, corners bumped, original endpapers rehinged with matching vintage paper. Manuscript ex-libris on title page of "John Hitchman M.D." (1815-1893), English physician and superintendent of Mickleover Asylum (later Pastures Hospital) near Derby, where this copy was purchased (bookseller's ticket on front paste-down of J. A. Rowbottom). On page [x] a previous owner (perhaps Hitchman) has written notes on Darwin's death and estate, erroneously naming the author "Charles Erasmus Darwin" (Darwin's middle name was Robert). Minor foxing spots and occasional marks, very slight age toning, no ink marks or notes in text pages but the stray pencil mark and margin note. Regarding the title page, all recorded copies have the year printed beginning with a distorted number "1," while our copy has the number fully intact, raising the possibly that the title page was reset to correct this minor problem. It also suggests there may exist other alterations in the text that close comparison could reveal. Regardless, this issue is rare. Freeman 381.

Grolier 100 Medicine 70b. ¶ The third edition appeared in April,1861, in a run of just 2,000 copies (the second edition print run was 5,000), only 17 months after Darwin had received his advance copy of the first edition. The binding nearly matches that of the two previous editions, differing only in minor details. But the text was extensively altered, so much so that a table of differences between it and the second edition (a table that was updated for each subsequent edition) was added. Darwin also added the full historical sketch, written to satisfy complaints that he had not sufficiently credited his predecessors in presenting the general theory of evolution. (The sketch had already appeared in shorter form in the first German edition and in the fourth American printing (both 1860), in which it is called a preface. There also appears for the first time a postscript, on page xii. "Darwin not only drew an entirely new picture of the workings of organic nature; he revolutionized our methods of thinking and our outlook on the natural order of things. The recognition that constant change is the order of the universe had been finally established and a vast step forward in the uniformity of nature had been taken." (PMM).

" Abraham Sutro (1784–1869) , was a German rabbi. "He was appointed by the Kassel consistory as a teacher in Reichenbach in 1811, and became one of the first rabbis to preach in German. In 1815 he became rabbi of Muenster, and in 1828 of Paderborn. An opponent of Reform, Sutro objected to the introduction of the organ into the synagogue.

In 1853 he began to organize petitions to the Prussian authorities against discrimination in the appointment of Jews to governmental, particularly juridical, offices.

        Mather's Historical Oil Region Views of Western Pennsylvania. Part I. Mather's Historical Photographs

      14 leaves, 2 pages of text, 1 engraving, and 11 original gelatin linen-backed photographs regarding the drilling of the Drake Well by Col. Edwin L. Drake in 1859, the first oil well ever drilled in the United States, scenes and figures depicted in the photographs include a portrait of Edwin Drake, Drake at the well, oil traders, and the surrounding areas of "Oil Creek" including Foster Farm, Funkville, John Wait Farm, and John Benninghoff Run. Spine slightly shaken. Oblong 4to. Black cloth boards. Titusville, Pennsylvania (John A. Mather) 1895. Ink inscription on front endpaper "Miss Margaret Bond from Mrs E. Mather, Christmas 1905" Edwin Drake was hired by the Seneca Oil Company in 1858 to investigate suspected oil deposits in the Titusville region of Pennsylvania. Prior to this, petroleum oil was known of, but there was not yet a market for it. Drake began drilling, with pipe and steam, but progress was slow and the Seneca Oil Company had pulled their backing. Using his own money and that of friends, Drake perservered and on the morning of August 28th, after months of drilling at the rate of approximately three feet per day, Drake's driller looked into the hole and saw crude oil. The Drake Well prompted the first big investments in the petroleum industry and additional drilling in the area that became known as Oil Creek, ushering in the Pennsylvania oil rush. John A. Mather was the pioneer photographer of Pennsylvania's Oil Region. Hearing of the exploding activity in the Oil Creek Valley, Mather and his wife moved to Titusville in 1860 where he began working with a series of makeshift traveling darkrooms/studios. He transported his equipment through the oil fields by ox-pulled wagon or flatboat, and sold his photographs to a local audience. During his years photographing the Pennsylvania oil rush, he amassed a collection of over 20,000 glass plate negatives. However, due to damage from floods and fires, only 5,000 have survived to this day, preserved in the collections of the Drake Well Museum. Scarce; as of February 2017, WorldCat locates only three holdings in North America.
