Photo Album & manuscript dedication
This album represents an early voyage, quite possibly the inaugural voyage, of Royal Yacht SMS Grille, an important Prussian sailing vessel which would later be chosen for the passage through the Suez Canal on its grand opening of 17 November 1869 with the Crown Prince Louis of Hesse being on board, and the longest serving warship of the German Imperial Navy.

He was influenced by the work of Auguste Comte, but even more by that of the statistician Adolphe Quételet. From these various thinkers Buckle concluded that all human behaviour is subject to law, and therefore that there can be a science of human society. Many critics in his own day and later thought of Buckle as the English disciple of Comte, but, as Mill declared, Buckle agreed with the founder of positivism on little other than the ba … [Click Below for Full Description]

Original presentation binding of half vellum, spine tooled in gilt, red morocco label, single gilt rule to red boards, red endpapers, edges red. Engraved portrait frontispiece. Boards a little rubbed, otherwise a very good copy. Second edition, presentation copy inscribed by Lady Jane Shelley, Shelley's daughter-in-law, "The Countess of Malmesbury, from J. Shelley", on the front binder's blank. Jane Shelley was motivated to produce this memoir of her father-in-law as a response to his biography by Thomas Jefferson Hogg, which was published in 1858 to unfavourable reviews. In particular, the family was upset at what they perceived to be inaccuracies and fictions about the poet's life. First published in 1859, the first edition proved so popular that this second edition was published only four months later in the same year.

A near fine, clean copy. ---- PMM 345; Schumpeter, pp. 430, 528. - FIRST EDITION of a key work by Mill, partially based on Utilitarian doctrine, remarkable for establishing philosophically the virtue of the liberty of the individual as an absolute good for the community as a whole, rather than simply as a relative virtue, in relation to tyranny and oppression. Mill's "most widely read book ... represents the final stage in the growth of Utilitarian doctrine ... 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.' ... Many of Mill's ideas are now the commonplaces of democracy. His arguments for freedom of every kind of thought or speech have n … [Click Below for Full Description]

Small octavo, with 12 tinted lithograph plates and two folding maps; a very good copy in the original pictorial boards, later cloth spine, preserved in a folding box. First edition, in the very rare original pictorial boards. The twelve plates are by S.T. Gill and were commissioned for the book: they represent one of few examples of his work illustrating other people's books.This interesting account of Australasian travel was by the radical democrat owner-editor of the Argus, based on extensive travels throughout Australasia in the later 1850s. The appendix contains a variety of information relating to the Victorian Gold Rush, including details on the yields of different districts.Ferguson knew various cloth bindings of this first edition. Charmingly, the back board to this copy features a simple illustration of the two poles, featuring "Winter Night", a top-hatted northern hemisphere gentleman huddling from the cold, and "Summer Noon", a tramp making his way in the heat of Australia. In good condition.

Fizeau, Hippolyte
Victor Masson, Paris, 1859. ORIGINAL WRAPS. FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST FULL PUBLICATION OF THE RESULTS OF FIZEAU'S EXPERIMENTS WITH THE VELOCITY OF LIGHT. Note that the brief announcement of Fizeau's experiment was first published in Comptes Rendus in 1851. This paper "is less famous, for some reason, than the failure of Michelson and Morley to detect the aether drag, but no less significant. For it showed that the velocity of light increases in a medium according to the formula, v (1 - 1/n2), where v is the velocity of the medium, and n is the refractive index"(Gillespie in "The Edge of Objecticity" p. 427). Fizeau's paper is the first full experiment of an experiment measuring the speed of light in water. Known as the 'interference experiment', Fizeau's paper proved that the speed of light in water is affected by the direction of flow of the water. As Einstein himself would later acknowledge, the interference experiment with moving water is one of the main experiments confirming the special theory of relativity. Fizeau's work employed rotating mirrors and really involved two experiments, one with water moving in the direction of light and one with water moving opposite to the direction of the light - a method "capable of rendering evident any change of velocity due to motion" (Weinstein). In 1862, he would again use a modified version of this apparatus to determine the absolute speed of light. At the time, many believed that 'carrying medium' existed - an aether presumed to transmit light from its source to a given reflecting object and only from there to the human eye.

En parallèle à ses recherches et ses expériences sur l'aluminium, Sainte-Claire Deville (1818-1881) s'est également occupé de travaux importants sur la mine de platine, à la demande du gouvernement russe ; dès 1854, à l'aide du chalumeau à oxyhydrogène, il sépare du platine et identifie, outre le pal­la­dium et l'osmium, l'iri­dium, le rho­dium et le ruthé­nium, à partir de pépites provenant de l'Oural. En 1860, il présente à Académie des scien­ces des lin­gots de platine et de platine iridié, fondus dans le four de son laboratoire.

Contemporary half cloth with original printed boards. The monumental atlas volume of this French General Staff account of the most famous operation of the Crimean War. "This book was compiled by General Charles Auger (1809-59), Deputy Chief of Staff of the artillery of the army of the East, based on the original notes of artillery officers who took part in the siege; it was reviewed by the General Thiry, artillery commander of the Eastern army" (cf. Brunet). The Siege of Sevastopol lasted from September 1854 until September 1855, during the Crimean War. The French, Ottoman, and British allies landed at Eupatoria on 14 September 1854, intending to make a triumphal march to Sevastopol, the capital of the Crimea, with 50,000 men. The 56-kilometre traverse took a year of fighting against the Russian forces. Major battles along the way were conducted, and finally, Sevastopol surrendered in September 1855. During the siege, the allied navy undertook six bombardments of the capital, on 17 October 1854; 9 April, 6 June, 17 June, 17 August, and 5 September 1855. The Russian field army withdrew before the allies could encircle it. The siege was the culminating struggle for the strategic Russian port in 1854-55 and was the final episode in the Crimean War. - Boards soiled and rubbed along edges, scattered spotting throughout, some paper flaws.

1859. Folio broadside (502 by 356mm)., printed ornamental border containing an image of a large bunch of grapes above and between four columns of text. Laid down neatly on later card (some very light browning and a little damp staining to the upper part of the sheet).Concord, Mass, March, A scarce broadside advertising - and celebrating - the most iconic of all American grapes. Although numerous types of grapes had flourished in American soil none of them had ever proved resilient enough to survive the cold climates of New England. Bull, who was a gold beater and amateur horticulturalist, had long experimented with different types of vine in the New England area but it was not until he moved to a house in Concrod in 1836 that he noticed the eponymous fruit beginning to flourish in his garden. The possibly apocryphal story is that young boys returning from playing in the Concord River had scattered various seeds in the area and this had resulted in a fortuitous cross pollination and a resulting hardier grape. This handsome broadside advertises the sale of Bull's own Concord vines and is a valuable document of American viticulture and the (greatly unsung) achievement of Bull to produce a grape that would go on to become hugely popular. Either side of the image of the grapes is a list of the superior qualities of the Concord grape including the boast that it appears ?four weeks earlier than the Isabella' and about two weeks earlier than the Diana?; the text also states that the grape is ?an inch in diameter? with a ?very dark? colour and ?soft, tender and juicy? flesh.

London: Royal Society, 1859. 1st Edition. Soft cover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. Offprint from: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Vol. 149,1859, pp. 43-48, 2 engraved plates. London: Royal Society, 1859. 4to (304 x 232 mm). Original plain wrappers (soiled and little frayed), 2 engraved plates of fossil bones. Text and plates little age-toned only, some dust-soiling and very minor foxing. Provenance: Author's dedication copy to Hermann Meyer, Frankfurt (inscribed on front wrapper "M. Herman v. Meyer / Frankfurt / With the authors best respect")* ---- FIRST EDITION, rare offprint issue, inscribed by Owen. Megalania (Megalania prisca or Varanus priscus) is an extinct giant goanna or monitor lizard. They were part of a megafaunal assemblage that inhabited southern Australia during the Pleistocene. The name Megalania prisca was coined in 1859 by Sir Richard Owen to mean "ancient great roamer"; the name was chosen "in reference to the terrestrial nature of the great Saurian". Owen used a modification of the Greek word ?????? ?lain? ("I roam"). The close similarity to the Latin word: lania (feminine form of "butcher") has resulted in numerous taxonomic and popular descriptions of megalania mistranslating the name as: ancient giant butcher. Owen introduced the genus Megalania to accommodate the species Megalania prisca (Wikisource). *Christian Erich Hermann von Meyer (1801-1869), known as Hermann von Meyer, was a German palaeontologist. He was awarded the 1858 Wollaston medal by the Geological Society of London. Today, Meyer is probably best known for descri … [Click Below for Full Description]

London, Lovell Reeve, [November] 1859 [first separate edition]. Large quarto, viii, 128 pages (complete with the half-title). Later half roan and stippled cloth, lightly rubbed at the extremities; a very crisp and bright copy. 'The first important botanical work by a supporter of the doctrine of evolution by natural selection' (Norman, often quoted, but not going nearly far enough in our opinion!). A singular rarity, of the utmost importance. In the concluding paragraph of the postscript, unique to this edition, Hooker writes: 'I would further observe here, to avoid ambiguity, that my friend Mr. Darwin's just completed work "On the Origin of Species by Natural Selection" [sic], from the perusal of much of which in MS. I have profited so largely, had not appeared during the printing of the Essay, or I should have largely quoted it. Kew, November, 4, 1859'.

Hugo, Victor, French writer (1802-1885).
Hauteville House, 25 January [1859]. 8vo. 1 p. In French, to Jules Noirit: "In my solitude, I often receive some verse. I am not saying so out of pride, since I am nothing but a quiet soldier of duty, but as a tribute to the cause for which I have been exiled as well as to all the poets in my country. Well, sir, your stanzas are among the most beautiful verses I have received in seven years. Your poems have the innate nobleness of the ideal; they come from a deep, generous heart, which gives them wings. I thank you very much, and I congratulate you even more warmly. Your soul sings in you. I shake your hand, poet". - By 1859 Hugo had adopted a new lifestyle, prompted by ill health, in which he spent the summers away from his island home on Guernsey. Although he avoided France, he would have been able to return home and end his now voluntary exile. - With integral address leaf attached; browning with some water staining.

Fizeau, Hippolyte
Victor Masson, Paris, 1859. ORIGINAL WRAPS. FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST FULL PUBLICATION OF THE RESULTS OF FIZEAU'S EXPERIMENTS WITH THE VELOCITY OF LIGHT. Note that the brief announcement of Fizeau's experiment was first published in Comptes Rendus in 1851. This paper "is less famous, for some reason, than the failure of Michelson and Morley to detect the aether drag, but no less significant. For it showed that the velocity of light increases in a medium according to the formula, v (1 - 1/n2), where v is the velocity of the medium, and n is the refractive index"(Gillespie in "The Edge of Objecticity" p. 427). Fizeau's paper is the first full experiment of an experiment measuring the speed of light in water. Known as the 'interference experiment', Fizeau's paper proved that the speed of light in water is affected by the direction of flow of the water. As Einstein himself would later acknowledge, the interference experiment with moving water is one of the main experiments confirming the special theory of relativity. Fizeau's work employed rotating mirrors and really involved two experiments, one with water moving in the direction of light and one with water moving opposite to the direction of the light - a method "capable of rendering evident any change of velocity due to motion" (Weinstein). In 1862, he would again use a modified version of this apparatus to determine the absolute speed of light. At the time, many believed that 'carrying medium' existed - an aether presumed to transmit light from its source to a given reflecting object and only from there to the human eye.

Ca. 1859. Ca. 54x75 cm. Black ink on rice paper, hand coloured in yellow, red, black, and grey. Extensive text in Japanese on the right and left margins. Fold marks, otherwise a very good plan. Interesting early detailed Japanese plan of the first Russian settlement on Sakhalin Island - Fort Muravyovsky, founded by a Russian navigator and explorer Gennady Nevelskoy on 21 September O.S./ 3 October N.S. 1853. The fort was erected on the site of the Ainu village Kushinkotan in southern Sakhalin (according to the Russian sources, the name of the village was Tomari Aniva), on the shore of the Salmon Inlet of the Aniva Bay. The first commander of the fort was Russian military officer Nikolay Busse (1828-66). In May 1854 the fort was relocated to the Emperor's Harbour, due to the beginning of military actions against Russia by Britain and France during the Crimean War. The fort was rebuilt in 1869, under the name of Korsakovsky, and quickly became the centre of the Sakhalin penal colony of the Russian penitentiary system. It was handed over to the Japanese government in 1905 after Russia's defeat in the Russo-Japanese War, and was returned to Soviet Union in August 1945, after World War II. Renamed Korsakov in 1946, it is now an important administrative centre of Russia's Sakhalin Oblast. The plan states that it was copied in October 1859 from the original sheet drawn in September 1853 after the construction of the Russian fort. The plan depicts a rectangular fort with two watch towers (each with a guard on top, one is mounted with a flag), tall fence and several buildings, includ … [Click Below for Full Description]

At that time Lane was moving to Sudbrooke Park, Surrey, which Darwin and his wife visited the following year. 3. ALS.
