Adrien Emmanuel Rocquette
New Orleans: L. Marchand, 1860. "Poetry is the language of inspired reason; it is the language of the soul moved and delighted in ecstasy by the mystical beauty with which it is in love; it is the language of love, which is worried, which nothing satisfies, to which nothing seems difficult, and which calls to its aid the poetic development, the rhythm, the song, all the harmonious magic of the images, to paint his emotions, his ecstasies, his ideal visions, the bitter sadness of exile and the anticipated joys of heaven!"

KIRCHHOFF, Gustav & BUNSEN, Robert
Vienna: C. A. Lenoir, 1860. First separate edition, very rare, and complete with the huge, and even rarer, folding coloured plate of the spectrum. This paper marks the birth of the science of spectral analysis; it also contains the first announcement of the discovery of a new element, caesium, by spectroscopic methods. This technique has been called "One of the most dashing advances of the human mind into the secrets of the composition of matter on earth and in the cosmos" (B. M. Kedrow in 'Spektralanalyse,' 1961). "The Sun's spectrum had been studied since the late 1600s by a succession of scientists including Isaac Newton, who directed a narrow sunbeam into a darkened room and dispersed it with a glass prism. But it wasn't until two centuries later that Robert Bunsen and Gustav Kirchhoff revealed how the chemical composition of the Sun is imprinted in the very light it emits. If the features within the Sun's rainbow were hieroglyphs, then Bunsen and Kirchhoff's 1860 paper, 'Chemical Analysis by Observation of Spectra,' was truly the astronomer's Rosetta Stone" (Hirshfeld, 'Starlight detectives: The birth of celestial spectroscopy,' Sky & Telescope, Vol. 108 (2004), p. 44). "The spectroscope was soon the pre-eminent tool of elemental discovery and analysis; it paved the way for quantum theory, and led astrophysicists to the shocking realisation that the universe is expanding. Today, chemists live and die by a bewildering range of spectroscopies" (Sella, 'Kirchoff's spectroscope,' Chemistry World, September 2013). This paper was also published in Annalen der Physik, Vol. 11 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Just ask! 1860 1ed Pianoforte by Edward Rimbault Romantic Classical MUSIC Piano JS Bach Few inventions have so greatly influenced a society as the piano in the 19th-century. During this time period, the piano was the focal point of parlor gatherings, parties, and of course, the concert hall. Edward Rimbault, and English organist, published his own account of the development and influence of the piano on European society and music. This work, 'The Pianoforte' as it is simply known, describes the origins of keyed-string instruments, the construction of the instruments, and charming illustrations depicting the piano. This work is incredibly rare. It was only printed once in 1860 and was a limited run, many of which were given to notable piano makers, teachers, and performers in Europe and America.

Alfred GUESDON (Nantes 1808 - ?)
1860. Alfred Guesdon nasce a Nantes il 13 giugno del 1808, terminati gli studi classici parte nel 1829 alla volta di Parigi per entrare come allievo architetto nello studio di Antoine Martin Garnaud. Dal 1830 si dedicò a sperimentazioni e ricerche nel campo della litografia, prediligendo soggetti storici, vedute e panorami, tratti dai numerosi viaggi che egli fece in Europa. La peculiarità di queste vedute sta nel fatto che si tratta dei primi rilievi di città dall'alto, effettuati a bordo di una mongolfiera. Nel 1849 pubblica le tavole, in litografia, nel celebre L'Italie à vol d'oiseau., o storia e descrizione sommaria delle principali città di questo paese, di H. Etiennez, accompagnate da 40 grandi vedute generali, disegnate dal vero da Alfred Guesdon e litografate con due tinte da A. Rouargue, Jules Arnout, A. Cuvillier, A. Guesdon. Bibliografia: D.

Once he finished his classical studies, in 1829, he went to Paris, to study architecture as a pupil of Antoine Martin Garnaud. Starting from 1830, he devoted himself to experimentations and researches on the art of lithography, especially on historical subjects, views and landscapes he took from his many trips around Europe.

Illinois Republican State Central Committee
[Springfield? Chicago?, 1860. 16pp. Caption title, as issued. Disbound with some loosening, paper clip shadow on first and last leaves. Printed in two columns per page. Good+. This Illinois campaign document is probably the first of three printings, each with similar but not identical material. Each attacks Douglas for hypocrisy on the question of Congressional power to control slavery in the Territories. Each paints him as an extreme Southern Rights partisan, supporting the Dred Scott Decision and scuttling the Missouri Compromise. In his early public career, Douglas had extolled the immutable nature of the 1820 Missouri Compromise, and insisted that Congress had full power over the Territories. But in 1854, leading the Kansas-Nebraska Act forces and advocating Popular Sovereignty, he changed horses: only a Territory's inhabitants could decide whether to bar slavery within its borders. His attempt to reconcile the Dred Scott Decision with Popular Sovereignty, and his unconcern with slavery as a social and moral question, are mocked and scorned. FIRST EDITION. LCP 8794.

Stephens, John L. [Millard S. Fillmore]
Harper & Brothers, New York, 1860. From the library of President Millard Fillmore. Octavo, 2 volumes, original cloth, gilt titles to the spine, illustrated, fold-out map. Signed by Millard Fillmore in four places and also signing his wife's name to both inner front paste downs as "Caroline C. Fillmore, March 20, 1862" as well as having signed her name to each title page in the same manner "Caroline C. Fillmore, March 20, 1862." In very good condition.   The 12th Vice President, United States , Millard Fillmore, was elevated to the presidency in 1850 by the death of President Zachary Taylor. Born into relative poverty in upstate New York, he became a prominent lawyer and politician in the Buffalo area and a Whig as the party formed in the 1830s in opposition to the policies of Andrew Jackson. During the American Civil War, Fillmore was critical of Lincoln's war policies and openly denounced secession, asserting that the Union must be maintained by force if necessary. As President he was instrumental in passing the Compromise of 1850 which led to a brief truce in the conflict between slave and free states which divided the Union and strengthened the Fugitive Slave Act which provided for the return of slaves who escaped from one state into another territory.

?Panorama of Helsingfors and the Fortress of Svéaborg?, lithograph made by Maclure, MacDonald & MacGregor after photographs by M.V. Wright, published in London c. 1860 by Edward Stanford. Coloured by a later hand. Size: approx. 25,5 x 68,5 cm.Wonderful rare view of Helsinki from the time that the Grand Duchy of Finland was (an autonomous) part of the Russian Empire (1809-1917).Russian Emperor Alexander I of Russia moved the Finnish capital from Turku to Helsinki in 1812 to reduce Swedish influence in Finland, and to bring the capital closer to Saint Petersburg. Following the Great Fire of Turku in 1827, the Royal Academy of Turku, which at the time was the country's only university, was also relocated to Helsinki and eventually became the modern University of Helsinki. The move consolidated the city's new role and helped set it on a path of continuous growth. The neoclassical architecture of the time (still visible in today?s downtown area), mostly planned by the German-born architect Carl Ludvig Engel, was to resemble Saint Petersburg.From left to right we see: the university, the South Harbour (Eteläsatama), National Library, Maison de la Societé, Helsinki Cathedral, Statue of Emperor Alexander II of Russia, Houses of Parliament, The Bank, Imperial Palace, House of Nobility (Ritarihuone), House of the Guards (Päävartio), The Canal (Katajanokan kanava), the mansion of General Otto Wilhelm Klinckowström, the North Harbour with the station of the Finnish ships of war, the Blekholm Islands (Valkosaari), the provincial prison and the barracks and arsenal, Lonna island, Gust … [Click Below for Full Description]

The item is fashioned from three blanket panels, 1860 mm long and ranging from 810 mm wide at the base to 860 mm wide at the open end, hemmed with a heavy contrasting fabric trim and sewn together fully along one long and one short side, and for 1120 mm along the second long side. The balance of that side is open, and three large buttons are sewn near the inside edge of the bottom panel, enabling the panels to be fastened together; the top side is open. A small Jaeger label (30 × 77 mm) is sewn on the underside of the top panel. A few light stains and occasional traces of silverfish activity; minor signs of use and age, but overall in excellent condition. Mawson makes specific reference to the camel-hair woollen material supplied by Jaeger to the expedition (see the 1915 first edition of 'The Home of the Blizzard', Volume 2, Appendix VII, 'Equipment', page 313). 'With regard to the clothing, the main bulk was of woollen material as supplied by Jaeger of London. This firm is unexcelled in the production of camel's-hair garments and has supplied most polar expeditions of recent years with under-clothing, gloves, caps, and the like. From the same firm we also secured heavy ski-boots, finnesko-crampons, and the blankets which were used at Winter Quarters at both Antarctic Bases'. Mawson also notes there that 'Furs, which were obtained from Norway, were restricted to sleeping-bags', which were used on sledging journeys.

Dickens, Charles
1860. [London: St. Luke's Hospital, 1860.] Original pale pink wrappers. First Edition, second and usual issue -- with the final paragraph in bold (not like the rest of the text), with the wrapper pink (not mauve -- though all are today faded), with the front cover title followed by a comma (not by a period), and with the front cover border decorative only at the corners (not all 'round). Dickens describes the wretched conditions inside St. Luke's Hospital ("established in 1751, for the treatment and care of lunatics"), and in particular the "very sad and touching spectacle" of the annual Christmas Ball there (dancing around the Christmas tree). He actually wrote the original piece in 1852, at which time it appeared in his Household Words (Dickens's authorship was questioned until 1913, when the original manuscript -- in his hand -- turned up). It is here published in book form for the first time, eight years later, when Dickens gave permission for the hospital to use it as a fundraising appeal. The hospital added two items to update the piece: an article about the 1860 Ball from the "Times," plus a brief article "Contrast between 1852 and 1860," in which the hospital asserts that many of the deficiencies cited by Dickens have since been addressed. (The results of the initial mailing were not good -- which is why for this second issue, the final paragraph, the actual appeal, was highlighted in bold.) This is a fine copy of this very fragile item, with scarcely any wear, soil, or foxing; as usual, the pink wrappers have faded.
