William H Emory
Condition: Very Good. Washington, D. C.: Cornelius Wendell. Very Good. 1859. A complete set of three rebound volumes, actually two volumes in three, with all plates present as called for. Red stamped cloth boards with bright gilt imprint on spine, made to look like leather. Light wear on corners. Slightly faded marbled edges. Reports within volumes paginated separately. William H. Emory was appointed commissioner of the United States and Mexico Boundary Survey following John Russell Bartlett, who was MIA from the survey upon Emory's arrival to assume his appointment. Emory was left to scrap together an effective survey party and obtain an accurate survey of the border after previous errors had ceded the Mesilla Valley, important in constructing a trans-continental railroad, to Mexico. The Gadsden Purchase had corrected this, but also added new territory to be surveyed. In addition to helping to clear up the boundary controversy, Emory's accounts were important in noting that the deserts of the southwest were not an agrarian paradise, and his team assembled a wealth of natural history and anthropological observations. This report is also notable for the illustrations, with many plates of scenery, plants, animals, and in particular color plates of the native inhabitants and birds. Volume I contains the personal narratives, correspondence, meteorology, geology, ethnology, and paleontology. It has shadow toning and light soil on some pages, with shadowed offsetting from plates. The other volumes have light soil on some pages, with less toning. First part of Volume II is botany; … [Click Below for Full Description]

"[.] Le cher grand [son fils Abel], comme l'appelle parfois Alix, et qui serait aussi bien nommé par Variante, le cher irrésolu ne part pas ce soir, ni demain, et ne parle de départ probable que pour lundi soir". Il a dû retarder son départ [pour l'Algérie] "pour cause d'arriéré de fabrication [.]". "De l'arriéré, il y en a toujours chez nous, cela tient de famille. J'entends Abel protester et ne voulant pas compter parmi les arriérés. Affaires calmes, recettes maigres".

Puis, avec humour : " Je vous quitte, voulant aller soumettre à Davet une question d'helminthologie ou d'helmintiose [vers parasites], sur un échantillon que Gabriel a fait passer à son frère et qu'il aurait ramassé précieusement comme une relique de son for intérieur.

John Murray, 1859. Condition: Good. Click here to see our other books! Self-Help; With Illustrations of Character and Conduct Samuel Smiles 1859 John Murray : London 7.5" by 5" xii, 343, 4pp SUMMARY A scarce first edition of Samuel Smiles' pioneering and influential work on self-improvement. First Edition,Original Binding Overall Condition: Fair This book weighs 0.75 KG when packed Australia Postage: £ Free UK Postage: £ 3.99 US Postage: £ 19.99 EU Postage: £ 15.99 European Postage: £ 16.99 Asia Postage: £ 21.99 Worldwide Postage: £ 25.99 DESCRIPTION Not seen at auction since 1983. Samuel Smiles (23 December 1812 - 16 April 1904), was a Scottish author and reformer. The origins of this work, Smiles' most famous, lay in a speech he gave in March 1845 in response to a request by a Mutual Improvement Society, published as The Education of the Working Classes. Routledge rejected publishing Self-Help in 1855. Twenty years later Smiles was seated next to George Routledge at a dinner, and he said to him: "And when, Dr. Smiles, are we to have the honour of publishing one of your books?" Smiles replied that Mr. Routledge had had the honour of rejecting Self-Help. Although John Murray was willing to publish Self-Help on a half-profits system, Smiles rejected this as he did not want the book to lose its anecdotes. In 1859 he published the book at his own expense and risk, retaining the copyright and paying John Murray ten per cent. commission. It sold 20,000 copies within one year of its publication. Bound by Edmonds and Remnants of London, with a binder's label to rear pastedown. Pub … [Click Below for Full Description]

GRAY, Henry (1827-1861)
Philadelphia: Blanchard and Lea, 1859. Tall 8vo (260 x 165 mm; 10¼ x 6½ in.). xxxii, 754, [2] blank, 80 pages advertisements dated July 1859. Half-title. 363 wood-engravings in text after the drawings by H. V. Carter. Modern brown leather. A very good copy with characteristic light browning and intermittent marginal staining consistent with the book's use. Provenance: J. L. Mondloch (early 20th-century ink signature on half-title; possibly a physician from Montana of that name, died 1939). Item #403937 FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. Henry Gray's landmark Anatomy, which remains the standard work on the subject some 160 years after the publication of the first edition. The short-lived English anatomist and surgeon Henry Gray won prizes for his essays on the optic nerves (1849) and on the spleen (1854), the latter of which contained important facts about its function that had remained undiscovered for seventy years. In 1855, Gray was approached by his colleague Henry Vandyke Carter (1831-1897) at St. George's Hospital Medical School in London with the idea of producing a comprehensive, inexpensive, and accessible text on anatomy for medical students. After the publication in London of the Anatomy in 1858, numerous errors were found in its dense and technical text. The publisher's notice in the American edition informs the reader that the book's "passage through the press has therefore been superintended by a competent professional" to ensure the improvement of the text. The American edition enhanced on the index of the British edition, and rearranged certain parts for easier comprehe … [Click Below for Full Description]

FIRST EDITION. This was George Meredith's first full-length novel (preceded only by a volume of verse and two single-volume burlesques). When it first came out, in 1859, it was a critical and financial failure, considered both "unreadable" and of "low ethical standards". It was not, therefore, reprinted until 1878. Then, all of a sudden, the critics began raving about the book to such an extent that it became required reading at many English schools. That is why the 1859 first edition of what became the author's best known work is scarce. Half-leather (leather spine and corners) and pebbled cloth covered boards, five raised spine bands, embossed gilt titling to spine, marbled page edges, marbled endpapers, 4.5x7.5". Pagination: iv, 303; iv, 348; iv, 395. Bookplate of STEPHEN EATON ELAND on the front pastedown of each volume. Condition: Covers are rubbed and scraped at the spine ends, corner tips and edges of the leather, and are sunned at the margins, but remain sturdy and handsome; the top page edges have darkened; Volume I is lacking a blank prelim page (blank prelim page before the title page), otherwise all volumes are complete; there is substantial foxing to the first and last few pages of each volume, otherwise there is only a bit of foxing here and there; other than the foxing on the first and last few pages, the inner pages are complete, tight, bright, clean and unmarked.

Grunweirs En 1836, dentro del proyecto mundial de las Sociedades bíblicas de llevar la palabra de la Biblia a todos los pueblos del mundo y para ello editarla en tantas lenguas como fuera posible, la Nederlandsch Bijbelgenootschap (Sociedad biblica neerlandesa) instaló una de sus misiones en Rheinesche, Kalimantan, Borneo central. Hacia 1839 fue enviado como misionero August Hardeland, quien con el tiempo fue convirtiéndose en lingüista, publicando en 1858 una gramática del Dayak y en 1859, este fantástico diccionario y las traducciones al Dayak del viejo y del nuevo testamento.La lengua que estudió Hardeland ya no es denominada Dayak, puesto que las lenguas Dayak son múltiples, formando una familia lingüistica con muchas diferencias. De este modo, la que estudió Hardeland es la hoy denominada Ngaju, la hablada por el pueblo del mismo nombre.

S Augustus Mitchell
Philadelphia: S. Augustus Mitchell, 1859. Large hand-colored wall map on rods, approx. 64" square, with 4 engraved vignettes, 3 inset maps (2 of the world, and 1 of the Sandwich Islands), all within an elaborate floral border; some infill along the margins, slight loss in the population tables at the bottom, and several cracks in the paper, the whole neatly and professionally backed with linen; overall appearance is certainly very good or better, with the usual small defects. America as it was on the eve of the Civil War. OCLC records examples from 1856, 1857, 1858, 1860 and 1861, but not this. Unusual features of this map include the Shoshone Territory (what is now mostly Idaho), Colona (now part of Colorado), the unusually large Nebraska, the horizontal Utah and New Mexico, and the unusually small Dakotas.

Fuhlrott, Johann Carl
1859. Erster Druck. - PMM 342 - NDB V, 724 - Der erste Druck des Berichts über die Entdeckung des später nach dem Fundort benannten "Neandertalers. Fuhlrott vertritt in vorliegendem Bericht die Ansicht, dass es sich bei dem Schädelfund aus einer Grotte im Neandertal nicht um ein pathologisches Exemplar, sondern um die Überreste eines gesunden Menschen einer alten Rasse handelt, die sich erheblich von allen neueren Rassen unterscheidet. "Lange Zeit glaubte man nicht recht an das Alter der Knochen. Virchow und andere waren überzeugt, daß diese seltsame Hirnschale die eines Idioten war, ... nur langsam fand dieser Fund seine Anerkennung. (Bücher, die die Welt verändern, S. 622). - First edition. - PMM 342 - Modern half calf. - Johann Karl (Carl) Fuhlrott (1804-1877), German scienceteacher & human palaeontologist, received an assortiment of fossilized bones found by two quarry workers in the Feldhofer cave of the Neander Valley in august 1856. He studied the specimens and began to suspect that they were the remains of an ancient and primitive form of human being. A preliminary decription of the fossils was presented at the Lower Rhine Medical and Natural History Society, where "Rudolf Virchow and Carter Blake dismissed the bones as the remains of an idiot ravaged by rickets in youth and arthritis in later life. They refused to credit any great age to them (D.S.B. V, 206). Finally in 1860, Fuhlrott could show his fossils to Sir Charles Lyell, who stated that the specimens were authentically human, named aft er the finding place Homo neanderthalensis.

BAUDELAIRE Charles (1821-1867). Poète français. Lettre autographe signée « C.B. », 15 décembre (1859), à son éditeur Auguste Poulet-Malassis, 1 page in-8, adresse avec timbre. Intéressante lettre de Charles Baudelaire à son éditeur au sujet notamment de ses traductions d'Edgar Allan Poe. « J'ai reçu le salaire de l'opium... » « Vous ne vous donnez même pas la satisfaction banale des reproches. Vous êtes un Ami parfaitement généreux, et d'une manière absolue, en toute circonstance, si désagréable qu'elle soit, vous pouvez compter sur mon dévouement. Mais vous oubliez dans votre départ précipité, de me renvoyer, tout signé de vous, le reçu qui implique à la fois que j'ai reçu le salaire de l'opium, et que je vous l'ai transmis. Or, je dîne demain soir chez De Calonne, et la première chose qu'il va me demander, c'est si j'ai ce reçu. Quel est donc ce nouveau malheur ? Nous aurons à discuter l'opportunité d'un procès à faire (pour moi) à Michel Lévy. Il s'agit des Notices, du Corbeau, de l'Ange du bizarre, d'Eleonora, et d'Evènement à Jérusalem. Demain je verrai Pincebourde. Répondre vite. C.B. ». Dans cette lettre, Baudelaire évoque avec l'expression « salaire de l'opium »son texte « Enchantements et tortures de L'opium » qui paraîtra quelques semaines plus tard dans La Revue Contemporaine du 15 janvier 1860 ; revue dirigée par Alphonse de Calonne. Texte qui au demeurant intègrera son ouvrage Les Paradis artificiels. Baudelaire mentionne aussi ses ennuis judiciaires avec l'éditeur Michel Lévy qui refusait de permettre la réimpression de ses travaux sur Edgar Allan Poe.

Book Title: THE REV. J.W. LOGUEN, AS SLAVE AND AS FREEMAN Author: J. W. Loguen (Jermain Wesley), 1814-1872. Jermain Wesley Loguen was born around 1814 in Davidson County, Tennessee, to an enslaved mother named Jane (who was later renamed Cherry) and her white master, David Logue. Originally named Jarm Logue, he later added the "n" to his last name to differentiate himself from his slave-master father and adopted the middle name "Wesley" to reflect his Wesleyan Methodist sympathies. When he was in his early twenties, Loguen escaped from slavery and fled to Canada. He eventually settled in New York state, enrolled in the abolitionist Oneida School in 1839, and later established a school in Utica, New York, for African American children. He moved to Syracuse, New York, in 1841, founded another school, and married Caroline Storum, with whom he had five children. Loguen was ordained by the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Zion Church in 1842 and became increasingly involved with the anti-slavery movement, working with other abolitionists, including Frederick Douglass, on the lecture circuit. Loguen publicly denounced the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law and swore to defy it. He even advertised himself as a prominent Underground Railroad conductor in an April 1855 issue of Frederick Douglass' Paper, writing "that the Underground Railroad was never doing a better business than at present. . . . I speak officially, as the agent and keeper of an Underground Railroad Depot." Loguen served as pastor of Zion Church in Binghamton, New York, in the early 1860s, and after the Civil War became act … [Click Below for Full Description]

Book Title: THE REV. J.W. LOGUEN, AS SLAVE AND AS FREEMAN Author: J. W. Loguen (Jermain Wesley), 1814-1872. Jermain Wesley Loguen was born around 1814 in Davidson County, Tennessee, to an enslaved mother named Jane (who was later renamed Cherry) and her white master, David Logue. Originally named Jarm Logue, he later added the "n" to his last name to differentiate himself from his slave-master father and adopted the middle name "Wesley" to reflect his Wesleyan Methodist sympathies. When he was in his early twenties, Loguen escaped from slavery and fled to Canada. He eventually settled in New York state, enrolled in the abolitionist Oneida School in 1839, and later established a school in Utica, New York, for African American children. He moved to Syracuse, New York, in 1841, founded another school, and married Caroline Storum, with whom he had five children. Loguen was ordained by the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Zion Church in 1842 and became increasingly involved with the anti-slavery movement, working with other abolitionists, including Frederick Douglass, on the lecture circuit. Loguen publicly denounced the 1850 Fugitive Slave Law and swore to defy it. He even advertised himself as a prominent Underground Railroad conductor in an April 1855 issue of Frederick Douglass' Paper, writing "that the Underground Railroad was never doing a better business than at present. . . . I speak officially, as the agent and keeper of an Underground Railroad Depot." Loguen served as pastor of Zion Church in Binghamton, New York, in the early 1860s, and after the Civil War became act … [Click Below for Full Description]
