Her affaires de coeur included Isadora Duncan, Marlene Dietrich, Eva le Gallienne and most importantly, twelve years with Great Garbo.

        Nouveau Jeu de Loto Géographique et Universel ou Tableaux des Capitales de L'Univers.

      Paris: Chromol de Engelmann et Graf, c. 1860. Loto Game, consisting of 18 pictorial game cards, each illustrated with five lithographic scenes, one small cloth bag containing glass counters, one large cloth bag containing 90 numbered circular timber tokens, folio rule sheet printed on yellow paper; all contained in the original decorated card box measuring 224 x 280 mm., with colour-printed lid, decorated in gold. A rare and exquisitely produced geographical lotto game, featuring lithographs of major cities and ports of the world. There are 90 countries and principalities featured in Europe, Asia, Oceania, Africa and America, and each is represented by an illustration and brief description of population, exports and industries.Many of the representations of recently-settled Pacific destinations such as Hawaii, Tahiti and the Marquesas are drawn from published voyage accounts. The fine depiction of Sydney Harbour is very closely modelled on the view "Vooloo-mooloo au Port Jackson" which was published in the official account of La Place's grand voyage in La Favorite. This view had originally been drawn in Sydney by the voyage's artist Barthelemy Lauvergne, and was prepared for publication as an aquatint by Sainson."Nouveau Jeu de Loto..." is a particularly fine example of the deluxe nineteenth-century French children's games - beautiful and practical educational devices which made drawing-room geographical study a pleasure. The fine lithographs were printed by Engelmann and Graf, the company established by pioneering French lithographer Godefroy Engelmann.Scarce when complete and especially so when in such fine condition. Some slight ageing to lid otherwise in fine original condition.

        Lettera autografa firmata Leri 13 janvier (1860), 4 pagine in francese a François Buloz (1803-1877) direttore della Revue des Deux Mondes, importante editore, per 40 anni direttore della Rivista, ed amministratore della Comédie-Française

      1860. Importante lettera, inviata pochi giorni prima del suo ritorno al governo; comprende giudizi su Garibaldi, alla vigilia dell'accordo per la cessione di Nizza e Savoia alla Francia. Deluso per le conseguenze dell'armistizio di Villafranca (11 luglio 1859), Cavour aveva dato le dimissioni da Presidente del Consiglio; sarebbe stato richiamato il 21 gennaio 1860 per il suo terzo mandato, che avrebbe visto in marzo l'annessione al Piemonte dei ducati di Parma e Modena, della Romagna pontificia e della Toscana, a fronte della cessione di Nizza e Savoia alla Francia. «L'ajournement du congrès m'a non seulement forcé à renoncer à toute idée d'aller à Paris, mais il a été cause demon retour à Leri. J'ai du quitter Turin pour ne pas faire de l'opposition, et pour ne pas sanctionner par ma présence silencieuse une conduite que je crois dangereuse pour ne pas dire fatale. Le ministère, ou pour mieux dire un ministre pour se préserver d'une opposition que je ne lui avais pas faite, et que je n'avais nullement l'intention de lui faire est allé chercher des auxiliaires dans l'extrême gauche pour en faire des instruments de guerre contre moi. Après avoir inutilement aiguisé la plume de Brofferio, et tenté vainement d'organiser un comité électoral pour me nuire ; il a tenté de me détruire au moyen de Garibaldi. Le brave général aussi triste politique que bon soldat, s'est laissé persuader que j'étais devenu un réactionaire, et que par conséquent il ferait oeuvre de bon citoyen en annulant dans les élections l'influence de mes amis. La Nazione Armata n'avait pas d'autre but ..». Cavour sostiene di avere rinunciato ad una battaglia politica e morale che avrebbe nuociuto al paese «elle aurait exercé une fâcheuse influence sur l'opinion publique de laquelle le sort de l'Italie dépend peut-être. J'ai mieux aimé me taire et laisser Mr Rattazzi jouir tranquillement des douceurs d'un pouvoir si chèrement acquis ». Gli è difficile indicare a Buloz una linea per la Revue des Deux Mondes, mentre per la questione italiana « je crois qu'il faut pousser à l'annexion sans indiquer les moyens à employer pour l'accomplir ». La lettera fu scritta nella tenuta di Leri, frazione di Trino Vercellese, dal 1822 proprietà della famiglia Cavour, dove lo statista usava ritirarsi nei momenti di riposo, e vi sperimentava le tecniche di coltivazione che intendeva fare applicare in Piemonte, informandosi spesso sull'andamento delle attività produttive; il borgo è in totale stato di abbandono dagli anni Sessanta del Novecento.

        Mémoire sur la Fermentation appelée lactique; Memoire sur la Fermentation alcoolique.

      Paris: Mallet-Bachelier, 1858; 1860. First printings, in the very rare offprint form (first paper inscribed by Pasteur), of these two landmark papers, "often considered the beginning of bacteriology as a modern science, [which constitute] the first demonstration of the connection between a specific fermentation and the activity of a specific microorganism" (Garrison & Morton); "A great milestone in biochemistry" (Neville II, p. 274). "Pasteur's first paper on fermentation contains most of the central theoretical and methodological features of his biological theory of fermentation, in particular the concept of fermentation as a product of the growth of yeast, the idea that air is a source of microscopic yeasts and other micro-organisms, and the notion of specificity, in which each fermentation could be traced to a specific micro-organism" (Dibner). "Pasteur's concept of fermentation as a biological process challenged the chemical theory of fermentation put forth by Liebig, which Pasteur was able to disprove with his experiments on alcoholic and acetic fermentation" (Norman). Provenance: The earlier paper is inscribed by Pasteur to the French physicist and chemist Pierre-Guillaume-Camille Forthomme (1821-84): "A Monsieur Forthomme, Professeur au lycée de Nancy, souvenir affectueux, L. Pasteur." "Pasteur's memoir ['Sur la Fermentation appelée lactique'] expressed the basic approach and point of view which informed all of his subsequent work on fermentation. After a historical introduction he began by claiming that "just as an alcoholic ferment exists-namely, brewer's yeast-which is found wherever sugar breaks down into alcohol and carbonic acid-so too there is a special ferment-a lactic yeast-always present when sugar becomes lactic acid" ... Throughout the memoir Pasteur more nearly assumed than proved that lactic yeast "is a living organism, ... that its chemical action on sugar corresponds to its development and organization," and that the nitrogenous substances in the fermenting medium served merely as its food. Nonetheless, his convictions were firm and his conception of fermentation was already remarkably complete ... With two striking exceptions this memoir contains the central theoretical and methodological features of all of Pasteur's work on fermentation-the biological conception of fermentation as the result of the activity of living microorganisms; the view that the substances in the fermenting medium serve as food for the causative microorganism and must therefore be appropriate to its nutritional requirements; the notion of specificity, according to which each fermentation can be traced to a specific microorganism; the recognition that particular chemical features of the medium can promote or impede the development of any one microorganism in it; the notion of competition among different microorganisms for the aliments contained in the media; the assumption that air might be the source of the microorganisms that appear in fermentations; and the technique of directly and actively sowing the microorganism presumed responsible for a given fermentation in order to isolate and purify it. The two missing features, which soon completed Pasteur's basic conception, were the technique of cultivating microorganisms (and thereby producing fermentations) in a medium free of organic nitrogen and his notion of fermentation as "life without air" ... "In December 1857 Pasteur published the first in a series of abstracts, notes, and letters on alcoholic fermentation that culminated in a long and classic memoir of 1860 ['Memoire sur la Fermentation alcoolique']. Divided into two major sections, dealing respectively with the fate of sugar and of yeast in alcoholic fermentation, it inflicted on the chemical theory what Duclaux called "a series of blows straight from the shoulder, delivered with agility and assurance." Pasteur established that alcoholic fermentation invariably produces not only carbonic acid and ethyl alcohol-as was well known-but also appreciable quantities of glycerin and succine acid as well as trace amounts of cellulose, "fatty matters," and "indeterminate products." On the basis of these results, Pasteur emphasized the complexity of alcoholic fermentation and attacked the tendency of chemists since Lavoisier to depict it as the simple conversion of sugar into carbonic acid and alcohol. If the alleged simplicity of the process had formerly been seen as evidence of its chemical nature, he argued, then its actual complexity ought now to be seen as evidence of its dependence on the activity of a living organism. In truth, the complexity of alcoholic fermentation was such as to prevent the writing of a complete equation for it, a fact which was only to be expected, since chemistry was "too little advanced to hope to put into a rigorous equation a chemical act correlative with a vital phenomenon." "However impressive this line of attack against the chemical theory, an even more decisive mode of argument derived from Pasteur's ability to produce yeast and alcoholic fermentation in a medium free of organic nitrogen. To a pure solution of cane sugar he added only an ammonium salt and the minerals obtained by incineration of yeast, then sprinkled in a trace of pure brewer's yeast. Although the experiment was difficult and not always successful, this method could produce an alcoholic fermentation accompanied by growth and reproduction in the yeast and the evolution of all the usual products. If any one constituent of this medium were eliminated, no alcoholic fermentation took place. Obviously, argued Pasteur, the yeast must grow and develop in this mineral medium by assimilating its nitrogen from the ammonium salt, its mineral constituents from the yeast ash, and its carbon from the sugar. In fact, it is precisely the capacity of yeast to assimilate combined carbon from sugar that explains why it can decompose sugar into carbonic acid and alcohol" (DSB). "Educated at the École Normale Supérieure, Forthomme was professor of physics at the high school of Nancy for many years (where he had [Henri] Poincaré as a student), prior to obtaining the chair of the faculty of chemistry [at the University of Nancy] in 1869. Well-known to the intellectual circles of Nancy, he was a member of the municipal council and would sponsor the candidature of Léon Poincaré [Henri's father] to the Académie de Stanislas in 1862" (de Paz & DiSalle, Poincaré, Philosopher of Science, p. 8). Much-abridged versions of the two papers appeared in the Comptes rendus de l'Académie des Sciences (Paris) in 1857; 'Mémoire sur la Fermentation appelée lactique' appeared almost simultaneously in the Mémoires de la Société des Sciences, de l'Agriculture et des Arts de Lille, 2nd series, 5 (1858). The only recorded offprints were prepared from the Annales de Chimie et de Physique. Dibner 198; Garrison-Morton 2472 and Horblit 82 (abridged version); Norman 1653 (offprint), all for the earlier paper. Brock, Milestones in Microbiology, pp. 27-30. 8vo (219 x 135 mm), pp [1-3] 4-106; [1] 2-15 [1:blank but with manuscript annotations, probably by Forthomme], both offprints bound together in early 20th century cloth, first and final leaf with some browning.

        Herr Vogt.

      London: A. Petsch & Co., deutsche Buchhandlung, 1860 - Octavo (226 ×149 mm). Original publisher's printed wrappers, spine skilfully renewed. Housed in a custom made chemise and slip case, lettered in black. Spine skilfully renewed and covers lined with some neat restoration. Occasional light spotting and staining as usual. Small old ownership stamp erased from margin of first, last and one text leaf. A very good, uncut copy of this extremely rare publication. Ownership inscription at the head of the title-page of the Italian Socialist Luigi dal Pane, noting the earlier ownership of the Italian Marxist theoretician Antonio Labriola. Additional stamp of a Swiss collector to the upper wrapper. First edition of the work which Marx took the best part of a year away from the writing of Capital to complete. It is an answer to the slanders against himself, Engels and their supporters which appeared in Karl Vogt's 1859 pamphlet, Mein Prozess gegen die Allgemeine Zeitung. "Herr Vogt is Marx's 'forgotten' work. Mentioned in passing – if at all – in biographical studies, and scarcely at all in discussions of his writings, it has remained for over a century largely neglected. He knew before its publication that many 'clever men' would be 'completely unable to grasp how I could squander my time on refuting such infantile nonsense'. What the clever men and their successors over the years could not or would not understand is that for Marx in 1860, as for Marxists today, the defence and security of the revolutionary party was of paramount concern Vogt had taken the side of the petty-bourgeois democrats in 1848. Now he reached for the foulest slanders against Communists, [alleging] that they engaged in secret and violent conspiracies and that Marx acted among them like a dictator. In this book Marx answers Vogt line for line and charge for charge. In the first chapters he holds up to ridicule Vogt's assertion that the Communists constituted a secret conspiratorial gang, producing evidence from German emigrés which leaves the slanderer's arguments in tatters. Marx spares neither wit nor invective in demolishing his opponent" (R. A. Archer, in the preface to his English translation of Herr Vogt [1982]). Karl Vogt was "quietly teaching in Switzerland when an obscure German refugee newspaper in London accused him of being a paid agent of Napoleon III. The matter might have been forgotten if Liebknecht had not sent the accusation to the Allgemeine Zeitung, which was published in Augsburg. Liebknecht was the London representative of the German newspaper. The Allgemeine Zeitung published the story. Vogt was incensed, sued the newspaper for libel, and although the case was dismissed, he was able to claim a technical victory. He suspected, quite wrongly, that Marx was behind the attack. In fact Marx found little pleasure in the affair which dragged on for many weeks, and was relieved when it was over. Matters might have rested in the peace of exhaustion, but late in 1859 the bitterness flared up again. A small book appeared in Germany bearing the title Mein Prozess gegen die Allgemeine Zeitung. It was Vogt's account of his lawsuit against the Allgemeine Zeitung with a stenographic record of the court proceedings and whatever explanatory and contributory documents the author could lay his hands on. Vogt was a scientist, and he took care that the documents should be quoted with exemplary accuracy. Occasionally he would give initials rather than full names, but he was careful not to tamper with anything else. Here, finally, was the full evidence for Marx's treachery and duplicity as revealed in precise and objective testimony. There were no appeals to the gallery, only the documents. Vogt's presentation was masterly, and no one reading the book casually could imagine that it would be possible to rebut the evidence" (Payne, Marx, a biography, p. 318). Marx, outraged at the attack, replied in 1860 with Herr Vogt, in which he denounced Vogt for intrigue, slander, and double-dealing. Draper ST/M 51; Rubel 567. [Attributes: First Edition]
