        Vue de la maison de Kofler dans les Environs de Brixen en Tirol.\r

      1860 - Pietro Marchioretto nacque a Lamon, dal secondo matrimonio di Giovanni Maria Marchioretto e Francesca Fiorenza, nel 1761. I suoi biografi, quando ancora era in vita, posero la data di nascita nel 1772 e l’errore venne ripetuto spesso, fino a quando Liberale Paganini riportò un riassunto dell’atto di nascita. La prima biografia di Marchioretto è opera di Antonio Frigo, arciprete di Borgo Valsugana, scritta tra il 1812 e il 1814 quando l’artista lamonese era ancora in vita e viveva a Telve Valsugana. Secondo il sacerdote Marchioretto se ne va di casa a 13 anni, dopo il terzo matrimonio del padre. Si reca dapprima a Bassano dove ricopia e vende le immagini sacre tratte dalle stampe dell’editore Remondini. Poi lo ritroviamo a Ramon di Loria, vicino a Castelfranco Veneto, dove è a servizio di un contadino. Qui viene notato per la sua abilità nel disegno dal nobile veneziano Pietro Civran che aveva alle sue dipendenze, come accadeva allora, un artista, il bellunese Giovan Battista Lazzarini, con il quale Marchioretto ebbe la sua prima vera formazione artistica. Le sue tracce si ritrovano a Venezia dove nel 1791 è indicato come «"angente" di Pietro Civran», cioè lavorava per lui, come domestico o con maggiori responsabilità. Nello stesso anno muore Lazzarini che lo indica come erede di parte dei suoi beni. Vive bene, ora, Marchioretto. Nel 1797 incontra il pittore goriziano Francesco Causig, suo secondo maestro. E’ di quegli anni anche l’incontro con l’incisore Gaetano Zancon, con la pubblicazione a Venezia di dodici incisioni su rame: i dipinti sono di Marchioretto, le incisioni di Zancon. Da Venezia, Marchioretto passa a Verona e poi a Bressanone, dove avvia una attività insieme allo stesso Zancon e allo stampatore Bisdomini che proseguirà per un paio d’anni con la produzione e la vendita di opere pregevoli, una ventina. Il pittore lamonese si sposta poi in Valsugana e a Trento, mentre le sue opere vengono diffuse sotto forma di incisioni nel mondo tedesco, dal 1806 al 1820. A Telve Valsugana Marchioretto si stabilisce attorno al 1811, dopo il matrimonio con Elisabetta Franceschi. Dalle lettere trovate da Conte, ci sono tracce di rapporti con nobili e personaggi conosciuti del Trentino, a testimonianza che il pittore aveva raggiunto una buona fama. Marchioretto è morto nel 1828 a Telve. er maggiori informazione rimandiamo alla monografia di Conte Paolo "Pietro Marchioretto. Un paesaggista tra Veneto e Tirolo" . Formato: Acquatinta colorata di mm 470x570. Buono, ordinari segni d’uso e del tempo, restauro sulla sommità destra dell’incisione.

        REPORTS OF EXPLORATIONS AND SURVEYS, TO ASCERTAIN THE MOST PRACTICABLE AND ECONOMICAL ROUTE FOR A RAILROAD FROM THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN. MADE UNDER THE DIRECTION OF THE SECRETARY OF WAR, IN 1853-4...

      Washington, 1860. Twelve volumes bound in thirteen. Profusely illustrated with maps, lithographic plates, colored lithographic plates, profiles, etc. Large, thick quarto. Original blindstamped cloth, spines gilt. Minor edgewear. Each volume rebacked, retaining original backstrip, but with new endpapers. All but one volume from the Senate issue (Volume XII, Part 1 is the House issue, with a Senate backstrip). Volumes III and X each with two extra plates not called for by Wagner-Camp or in the survey's lists of illustrations, Volume V and Volume XII, Part 1 lacking one plate each. A number of maps with holes and separations along fold lines, several with large tears, including Warren's map of the western United States. Also lacking the general map of of the routes surveyed from Volume XI. Occasional tideline affecting text or an illustration, scattered foxing and toning. Overall quite clean internally. Good plus. This large quarto set is the most important and massive compilation of exploration reports and data ever published about the trans-Mississippi West. Under the direction of Secretary of War Jefferson Davis, the Pacific Railroad survey in two years increased the contemporary knowledge of the geography, topography, geology, and natural history of the West by a quantum leap. Included herein are the reports of Humphreys, Stevens, Beckwith, Whipple, Warren, Williamson, Lander, et al., supplemented with reports on scientific observations, and numerous significant achievements in cartography including Warren's "Map of the Territory of the United States from the Mississippi to the Pacific Ocean..." (here present in the eleventh volume), which has been hailed as "the best cartographical work on the West up to its time..." (Howes). The illustrative material (engraved and lithographed views, specimens of birds, fishes, and other animals) is of the highest quality, often in colored state, and encompasses thousands of illustrations, either in the text or as separate plates. Wheat devotes twenty-four pages of detailed discussion to the maps in this series of reports, singling out the Warren map as "among the great maps of the United States that preceded the Civil War." All things considered, this edition of the Pacific Railroad Surveys stands as a testament to one of the greatest government sponsored projects in our history, and is a foundation work for any collection devoted to Western Americana or cartography.

        Portrait of Dominic Charles Colnaghi and his wife Catherine Pontet

      London, ca. 1860. Original photograph, carte de visite, albumen print, 10 x 6 cm. - P & D Colnaghi. - Colnaghi's impending retirement to Italy was postponed when his son Martin sued both his father and his brother Dominic (1790-1879) in 1824. The settlement of the lawsuit left Martin with the old shop. Martin became bankrupt in 1832 and 1843, and died in 1851, but his son (also Martin) continued the separate business in Pall Mall. Paul and Dominic Colnaghi moved to Pall Mall East - near the nascent National Gallery - and Paul Colnaghi continued to work in the business until he died in 1833. Caroline Scott's son, John Anthony Scott, joined Dominic Colnaghi in the business in 1839. Scott commissioned William Simpson to go to the Crimea in 1854 to make watercolour sketches of scenes from the Crimean War, published as a series of 81 lithographs in The Seat of War in the East. The gallery also sold photographs by Roger Fenton. After this early experience with photography, the gallery commissioned Leonida Caldesi and Mattia Montecchi to take photographs at the Art Treasures Exhibition in 1857, published in Gems of the Manchester Art Treasures Exhibition in 1858, and Colnaghi published artistic photographs by Julia Margaret Cameron from 1864. The firm was associated with John Constable, assisting him to exhibit The Hay Wain at the Paris Salon in 1824, where it won a gold medal. The art dealership organised exhibitions for the British Institution, and of paintings by Eugène Delacroix in 1829. After Scott died in 1864, and Dominic Colnaghi retired in 1865 and died in 1879, Scott's cousin Andrew McKay became sole proprietor. He was joined by his son William KcKay in 1879. - - - - Dominic Colnaghi married Catherine Pontet (d. 1881) on 15 October 1831, and they had two sons, neither of whom entered the firm, but the elder, Sir Dominic Ellis Colnaghi (1834-1908), became a consular official; posted to Florence in 1865, he served as consul-general for northern Italy from 1881 to 1896, and wrote A Dictionary of Florentine Painters from the Thirteenth to the Seventeenth Centuries, which was edited by P. G. Konody and Selwyn Brinton and published posthumously in 1928 (reprinted 1986). Leonida Caldesi (1823-1891). Leonida Caldesi was born in Florence, Italy in 1823 and arrived in England as a political refugee around 1850, though whether he was a photographer at this time is not clear. His brother Vincenzo (1817-1870) served as a major on the staff of the Italian patriot and revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807-1882). - Comparatively little is known about Caldesi's career though he was one of the leading London photographers during the 1850s and was acknowledged by contem­poraries as one of the foremost photographers of fine art from the 1850s to the 1870s. He had a number of short-term professional partners including Mattia Mon - tecchi (1858-59), Blandford (1861-62) and Lombardi, though throughout his career he maintained a business relationship with the print publisher and art dealer Paul and Dominic Colnaghi. Caldesi had important dealings with the Royal Family as well as three major public art collections in London; The National Gallery, the British Museum and the South Kensington Museum. He also carried out society portraiture and worked for learned societies and private collectors. - In August 1854, probably as part of a project lead by Paul and Dominic Colnaghi, Caldesi had requested per­mission to photograph the Raphael Cartoons at Hampton Court though he did not carry out his campaign until 1858 when he photographed in tandem with the South Kensington Museum's photographer Charles Thurston Thompson [qv]. - 1857 was probably the most important year in Caldesi's photographic career. In May Caldesi and his professional partner Mattia Montecchi, a compatriot who travelled to England with him, were summoned to Osborne on the Isle of Wight to take a series of photo­graphs of the Royal children. His growing reputation was sufficient for him to be established in April on the premises of P&D Colnaghi by John Scott, one of the firms' partners, and by June 1857 this establishment was noted in the columns of the Art-Journal. Colnaghi was to remain the primary publisher of Caldesi's reproduc­tions of works of art. - Although Caldesi specialised in the photographic re­production of works of art, his core business was centred on society portraiture and he exhibited several of these at that year's Art Treasures exhibition in Manchester. Caldesi and Montecchi also were engaged to photograph many of the paintings exhibited at this seminal exhibition. Along­side Robert Howlett [qv], they produced the majority of the 200 photographs for the two-volume 'Ancient' and 'Modern' series of Photographs of the Gems of the Art Treasures Exhibition, Manchester. Caldesi found difficulty in photographing some of the paintings in Manchester and successfully negotiated with the Royal Collection for some of its works to be subsequently moved outdoors to be photographed. - In the summer of 1857 Caldesi and Montecchi photo­graphed a smaller exhibition of portraits of Mary, Queen of Scots held at the Archaeological Institute, London. Theseat were published in 1858. - In 1859 The Gallery of the Most Noble The Marquess of Hertford, K. G., a selection of Caldesi's photographs from the Manchester exhibition, was published. At that year's exhibition of the Societe francaise de Photogra­phie Caldesi and Montecchi exhibited twenty-one pho­tographs of paintings displayed at the 1857 Manchester Art Treasures. Caldesi advertised a studio at Porchester Terrace in London's Bayswater and he began carrying out photo­graphic work for Prince Albert's Raphael Collection project. Perhaps as a result of this commission, Caldesi recorded the paintings in Buckingham Palace and was given permission to remove them to his studio. These photographs were published by P&D Colnaghi as the Royal Collection of Pictures at Buckingham Palace, and comprised forty small Albumen prints mounted on cards with printed captions that credit Caldesi, Bland - ford & Co. as the photographers, Montecchi having disappeared from the scene. This publication may bear the hand of the Prince Consort. Caldesi received further royal patronage that year when he was commissioned by Grand Duchess Marie of Russia to photograph the Elgin Marbles in the British Museum and he exhibited some of these views the following year at the Photographic Society's exhibition in London. - Caldesi advertised in the influential Athenaeum in the early 1860s stating that he personally took carte de visite portraits at 13 Pall Mall East, the Colnaghi premises, while 'portraits, Carriages, Horses, &c.' were taken at the branch studio at 6 Victoria Grove, Kensington. He photographed a number of prominent people including Sir Charles Eastlake, director of the National Gallery. In 1864 Caldesi published carte de viste portraits Giuseppe Garibaldi and his fellow patriot Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-1872) during their visits to London. - During the 1860s Caldesi also produced cartes de visites of paintings though it appears that he did not use the stereoscopic or Cabinet formats to any significant degree. - In 1860 Caldesi carried out a photographic campaign in the National Gallery in London, exhibiting some these photographs of paintings at the 1861 exhibition of the Societe francaise de Photographie. Between 1868 and 1873 The Pictures by the Old Masters in The National Gallery, a series of photographs of 360 paintings, was published by Virtue & Company. At this time Caldesi photographed a number of paintings in the Gallery on behalf of the director Sir William Boxall (1800-1879). - During the 1860s Caldesi was to carry out photo­graphic campaigns to record important private art col­lections such as the Farnley Hall collection of drawings by J. M.W. Turner These photographs, published by Colnaghi in 1864, seem to have had little impact and were not reviewed by the contemporary press. Another Colnaghi publication of 1864 was the Photographic Historical Portrait Gallery, which required Caldesi to photograph just under 200 Albumen prints of Tudor portrait miniatures. - An account of the latter years of Caldesi's life has yet to be assembled. Photographs by Cave. Leonida Caldesi, of Ancient Marbles, Bronzes, Terracottas, & C, & C. in the British Museum was jointly published with Colnaghi's between 1873-1874 but the photographs may have been taken some years before. Caldesi ap­pears to have returned to Bologna in around 1870 and died there in 1891. (Anthony Hamber). - Gernsheim 220: (...) Although it is marked Vol. I, no more were published.

        Bound volume of coloured separately-issued prints, including the Australian kangaroo and emu.

      London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, circa 1860. Oblong album containing 119 handcoloured plates, recent red cloth. Attractive collection of coloured zoological plates prepared for British schoolchildren during the mid-nineteenth century, including two Australian species (an emu and a kangaroo). The plates were issued by the Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, the publishing arm of the Anglican mission that during the early decades of the nineteenth century diversified its output from religious and theological texts to encompass a broad range of educational material, such as the present example. The plates were originally issued separately, priced at two pennies apiece when coloured, and the present bound volume represents a good portion of the entire series (of the 119 plates here, 53 are numbered). The explanatory text reflects a spirit of benevolent pedagogy. Take the description of the Emu for example: 'These birds are widely spread over the southern part of New Holland, and the neighbouring islands. They are met with at Port Philip and King George's Sound. Their food consists almost wholly of fruits, roots and herbage; they are quite harmless, except when attacked... It is sometimes coursed for sport; being pursued by well-trained dogs, which run up abreast and make a sudden spring at the creatures neck. This, however, is a cruel amusement. We have no right to seek our pleasure in a dumb creatures pain... ' Aside from the Australian fauna, the collection includes fish, cetaceans, reptiles and all manner of old world mammals. Significant closed tears affect five of the plates (Australian images unaffected), margins of the final seven plates chipped and worn.

        Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas,

      Columbus: Follett, Foster and Company,, 1860. In the Celebrated Campaign of 1858, in Illinois; including the Preceding Speeches of Each, at Chicago, Springfield, etc.; also, the Two Great Speeches of Mr. Lincoln in Ohio, in 1859, as carefully prepared by the Reporters of Each Party, and Published at the Times of their Delivery. In 8s (232 ×156 mm). Publisher's brown blind-panelled cloth, title gilt to spine. Blue half morocco slipcase, chemise. "Correspondence" leaf including Lincoln's letter to the Republican State Central Committee of Ohio acceding to the publication of his speeches, fourth leaf blank and genuine; two Fletcher family letters tipped onto the front endpapers, later print of a photograph of Job Fletcher and his wife mounted on one of the folds of the chemise. Extremities worn with minor loss, a few stains, foxed, front inner hinge broken. First edition, first issue (sig. mark 2 at foot of p. 17). Presentation copy of the text of the debates that were Lincoln's springboard to fame, inscribed and signed by Lincoln, in pencil on the front free endpaper, to Job Fletcher, one of the "Long Nine", Lincoln's closest Illinois political coterie: "Capt. Job Fletcher from A. Lincoln." The Lincoln-Douglas debates are unquestionably the most famous, and most important, of such confrontations to have been staged in the history of American politics. The candidates' sharp exchanges helped to polarise sectional attitudes towards slavery, and - although Lincoln lost the 1858 Illinois Senate race of which they were a part - the debates catapulted Lincoln towards the 1860 presidential nomination, and into the White House. The text of the Lincoln-Douglas Debates was set from Lincoln's own scrapbook - now in the Library of Congress - of clippings of the candidates' remarks as reported by the Chicago Press & Tribune (for the Republican Lincoln), and by the Chicago Times (for the Democrat Douglas). When published as a presidential campaign tool in April 1860, the collected speeches became a best-seller, and by the time of Lincoln's official nomination, some 30,000 copies were in circulation. Lincoln received one hundred copies of the Debates from the publisher, a number of which he inscribed for supporters. David H. Leroy's recent study, Mr. Lincoln's Book: Publishing the Lincoln-Douglas Debates, identified 42 copies inscribed or signed by Lincoln. Virtually all of the recorded examples, like the present, are signed in pencil, which Lincoln evidently adopted because the cheap paper of the edition tended to spread, or "feather" ink. The recipient, Job Fletcher, was born in Rockbridge County, Virginia, and served in the War of 1812. He settled in Sangamon County, Illinois, in 1819 and worked as a farmer and teacher. Fletcher served two terms, 1834 to 1840, with the future President in the Illinois state legislature, where they belonged to the Sangamon contingent known as the "Long Nine" - so called because all of them were over 6 foot - responsible for the passing of an amendment by the General Assembly by which the state capital was moved from Vandalia to Springfield. Fletcher later served two terms in the Illinois State Senate, subsequently joining the fledgling Republican Party, and working for Lincoln's nomination and election. Bookplate of William H. Townsend, author and collector of Lincolniana inside the front flap of the chemise. A superb association copy of one of the most celebrated publications in American political history.

        Notes on Nursing: What it is, and what it is not

      Harrison, London 1860 - Format: Octavo: (8 5/16" x 5 7/16", 211mm x 139mm). B8 C-F8 [$2]. 40 leaves, pp. 1-5 6-79, [1]. Number of Volumes: [1860]. Bound in publisher’s pebbled brownish-charcoal-gray cloth over flexible cardboard. Triple blind-fillet border, with blind diagonal miters. Title and author gilt to front cover. Yellow end-papers with printed advertisements. All edges speckled red. Mild rubbing to peripheries, with wear to head- and tail-piece. Moderate damp-stain to very edge of the lower fore-corner of the front end-papers and first page, not affecting text. Small chip to lower edge of first free end-paper. Moderate damp-stain to very edge of the lower fore-corner of the rear end-papers. Small chip to lower edge of rear free end-paper. Text fresh, with no foxing. A nice copy, entirely unsophisticated. With bookplate of John Bell Sedgwick to front paste-down. Having come to prominence during the Crimean War, the "Lady with the Lamp" became a symbol of Victorian hygiene and uprightness. Nightingale published her Notes on Nursing in January 1860, and by March 15,000 copies had been sold. Nightingale makes claim for what is now well understood: the treatment of disease hardly begins and ends with medicine. Cleanliness, routine, access to fresh air and light (not at all given in 1860 London), a simple and suitable diet –these all contribute enormously to the well-being and ultimate success of a patient. It is not perhaps totally novel, but its popularity contributed to the rise of modern nursing, and may well have been responsible for saving lives beyond number.As with so many "technical" works, the bibliographic details of the Notes are perplexing. Skretkowicz in his survey of the issues, notes nearly infinite variety –such that hardly any two copies are identical. The end-papers of the present item have advertisements for 1860 (from Burke’s Peerage to Caldwell’s Comparative Grammar of the Dravidian or South-Indian Family of Languages), which indicates at least an early issue (Skretkowicz notes copies with advertisements as late as 1901). The present item corresponds to Skretkowicz’s category 5 of the end-papers (the second setting; Skretkowicz 27) and category 5 of the binding (having to do with the size of the blind border; Skretkowicz 34). Its text places it in his Group 19 (based on the exclusion of a comma in a note on p. 64), but the category 5 end-papers and category 5 bindings do not appear together in his list –thus the present item might be considered the exemplar of a novel class: Group 19d. Norman (see below) considers this the third issue. John Bell Sedgwick was Chairman of the Leavesden Asylum Committee (which would eventually establish the Metropolitan Asylum for Chronic Imbeciles in 1870) and an early member of the Metropolitan Asylums Board. Nightingale’s petitions of the Poor Law Board, which ultimately established asylums such as Leavesden, were instrumental in the establishment and running of such institutions. Garrison & Morton 1612; Grolier Medical 100, 71; Heirs of Hippocrates 1884; Norman 1602; Osler 7737; Skretkowicz, Victor.

        The Professor at the Breakfast Table, with The Story of Iris

      London: Sampson Low, Son & Co. 1860 - Blue Cloth. Book Condition: Good. First British Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 286 pp, index, followed by a 2-page list of titles in preparation dated 1860, curiously followed by a 16-page catalogue published by Sampson Low, Son & Marston dated 1869. Presumably, though the leaves were printed in 1860, the book was bound some 9 years later. The rear pastedown has a small sticker bearing the wording, "Bound by W Bone & Son, Fleet St London". The covers are blind-stamped and the title and author's name are set in a gilt panel on the spine. The spine and the covers are worn, and the spine has darkened. The page edges are dusty. Both hinges are sound and the binding is firm and there are no loose pages. The title page is tanned, and there is foxing to the opposite page. Includes a letter in Oliver Wendell Holmes’ hand, dated 1887, to J Rogers Rees, author of “The Diversions of a Bookworm”, who also signed the book (the envelope address has been cut and pasted to the front pastedown and is in OWH’s hand). J Rogers Rees also inscribes the book to a Will Griffiths. With a letter by the Author and Inscribed by J Rogers Rees (Author of “The Diversions of a Bookworm”. Scarce. Wikipedia Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. (March 8, 1841 – March 6, 1935) was an American jurist who served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States from 1902 to 1932. Noted for his long service, his concise and pithy opinions and his deference to the decisions of elected legislatures, he is one of the most widely cited United States Supreme Court justices in history, particularly for his "clear and present danger" majority opinion in the 1919 case of Schenck v. United States, and is one of the most influential American common law judges through his outspoken judicial restraint philosophy. Holmes retired from the Court at the age of 90 years, 309 days, making him the oldest Justice in the Supreme Court's history. He also served as an Associate Justice and as Chief Justice on the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, and was Weld Professor of Law at the Harvard Law School, of which he was an alumnus. Profoundly influenced by his experience fighting in the American Civil War, Holmes helped move American legal thinking away from formalism and towards legal realism, as summed up in his maxim: "The life of the law has not been logic; it has been experience." Holmes espoused a form of moral skepticism and opposed the doctrine of natural law, marking a significant shift in American jurisprudence. As he wrote in one of his most famous decisions, his dissent in Abrams v. United States (1919), he regarded the United States Constitution as "an experiment, as all life is an experiment" and believed that as a consequence "we should be eternally vigilant against attempts to check the expression of opinions that we loathe and believe to be fraught with death." During his tenure on the Supreme Court, to which he was appointed by President Theodore Roosevelt, he supported efforts for economic regulation and advocated broad freedom of speech under the First Amendment. These positions as well as his distinctive personality and writing style made him a popular figure, especially with American progressives, despite his deep cynicism and disagreement with their politics. His jurisprudence influenced much subsequent American legal thinking, including judicial consensus supporting New Deal regulatory law, pragmatism, critical legal studies, and law and economics. The Journal of Legal Studies has identified Holmes as one of the three most cited American legal scholars of the 20th century.

        CLARK & TACKABURYS' NEW TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF THE STATE OF CONNECTICUT. COMPILED FROM NEW AND ACCURATE SURVEYS OF EACH COUNTY, AND THE UNITED STATES TRIGONOMETRICAL SURVEYS OF LONG ISLAND SOUND

      Philadelphia: Clark & Tackabury, 1860. Wall map, 53 x 68 1/2 inches, in full period hand-color. Expertly repaired, backed with modern linen, trimmed in blue cloth, on contemporary rollers. In very nice condition. A lovely wall map of the state of Connecticut, based on very current surveys and first issued in 1859. Richard Clark published a number of Connecticut maps in the 1850s, and no doubt drew on that knowledge in producing this accomplished state map. Nine inset maps provide detailed plans of the cities of Middletown, Waterbury, Stamford, Norwalk, New London, Bridgeport, Hartford, Norwich, and New Haven. A table gives population statistics for Connecticut's eight counties, and for the major towns and cities in each county. Grist mills and sawmills are shown, as are railroads and common roads. The mapping of the Connecticut coastline is especially fine, giving depths for the entire stretch of Long Island Sound, and showing the several islands lying off the coast. Not in Phillips MAPS.

        Microscopic photography: its art and mystery. The principles of the art disclosed, and its practice clearly explained.

      London: Frederick J. Cox, (1860). First edition. 12mo., 30 pp. Bound With: Reichardt, Oscar and Carl Stürenburg. LEHRBUCH DER MIKROSKOPISCHEN PHOTOGRAPHIE, MIT RÃœKSICHT AUF NATURWISSENSCHAFLICHE FORSCHUNGEN. Leipzig: Quant & Händel, 1868. 12mo., xv, (ii) 79 pp., with 2 plates each with 2 mounted photographs. Bound in later black linen with a morocco spine label. The first title is lightly toned, the second is fine with the original photographic plates fine and bright with deep black tones, leading to the assumption that these were made with the collodio-chloride process of J. B. Obernetter which was first introduced in 1867. "Although Victorians occasionally used the the terms photomicrography and microphotography interchangeably, the photographic processes was different for each. Microphotography involved taking a photograph of a large object and reducing it to microscopic dimensions for viewing with the aid of a microscope. Photomicrography used the microscope to photograph a magnified image of microscopic-sized specimens, from these photographs enlarged prints or magic lantern slides could be prepared for both advancement of knowledge and entertainment." Encyclopedia of Nineteenth-Century Photography, p. 1120. These two works are a perfect illustration of the above passage; the work by Nicholls provides a detailed methodology for making microscopic images, while the work by Reichardt and Stürenburg is a detailed methodology for making photographs with the microscope.

        Oak Lectern from St Augustine's Abbey Ramsgate.

      142cm high x 50cm wide. A Victorian Gothic Revival oak lectern. The reading slope over two cupboards, one with shelved interior, each with panelled doors, the side panels with Gothic trefoil inserts and pilasters with carved foliate capitals and tracery, with an integral solid platform. Lacking one shelf, a couple of capital leaves missing, but in very good condition. An attractive piece. From St. Augustine's Abbey in Ramsgate. This lectern was used in the Refectory of the Abbey for readings during meals. AWN Pugin built his famous house, known as The Grange, on the cliffs above Ramsgate in 1843-4. From 1845 he built, at his own expense and under his close supervision, the neighbouring church of St Augustine, to which were added its associated cloister, sacristy, school and priest's house. Pugin had acquired land to the north of the church on which he proposed to found a monastery, thus completing his ideal Catholic community, but did not live to see this ambition realised. On his death in 1852 control of the church passed to Thomas Grant, the first Roman Catholic Bishop of Southwark, who in 1856 entrusted it to a group of British Benedictine monks from the abbey of Subiaco in Italy. In 1860-61 a gift from the wealthy Catholic convert Alfred Luck, Pugin's friend and fellow Ramsgate resident, allowed permanent accommodation to be built for the monks. This comprised the present south and west ranges, designed by AWN's son Edward Welby Pugin. The monastery, which incorporated a school (demolished in 1973), was made a priory in 1881, and was raised to abbey status in 1896. In 1904 the present east wing was added, to a design by Edward's half-brother Peter Paul Pugin. In 1926 the Bergh Memorial Library was built to house the collection of books left by the bibliophile Abbot Bergh; the architect was Edward's nephew Charles Henry Purcell, who had himself been educated at the monastery school. Further additions, including the north range and the west gateway, were carried out in 1934-7 by Charles Canning Winmill. In 1976 a link block was added connecting the west range and the library. Edward Welby Pugin (1834-75) was the eldest son of the great Gothic Revival architect AWN Pugin. He inherited his father's burgeoning practice at the age of 18, and continued to develop it with tireless energy. The focus remained firmly on the Roman Catholic Church, but Edward developed a distinctive High Victorian style that combined increased elaboration of detail with a simplified approach to church planning. His major works in England include the churches and monastic buildings at Gorton in Manchester and Belmont in Herefordshire (churches both Grade II*). He lived at the Grange from 1862, and made a number of additions to both the house and the church. (English Heritage website). The Refectory from which this lectern came, was part of the west wing designed by Edward Welby Pugin. In 2011 the monastery decided to move to smaller premises and fixtures and fittings from the Abbey were sold, amongst some consternation, through auction.

Original diagonal-wave-grain green cloth, covers blocked in blind, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, brown coated endpapers, fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Folding diagram to face p. 117, 32 pages of publisher's advertisements to rear, dated January 1860. Bookseller's blindstamp to front free endpaper, binder's ticket to rear pastedown.

Second edition of "the most important biological book ever written" (Freeman), one of 3,000 copies printed, the usual issue with 1860 on the title page (a very few copies only have 1859). The second edition "can be recognised immediately by the date, by the words 'fifth thousand', and the correct spelling of 'Linnean' on the title page Â… The misprint 'speceies' is corrected and the whale-bear story diluted, an alteration which Darwin later regretted, although he never restored the full text. The story is not found again in any printing, except in the American editions of 1860, until the end of copyright".
