First edition in English, the most important work of the German Protestant missionary and explorer Johann Ludwig Krapf (1810-1881), who arrived in Ethiopia in 1837 before moving on to Cairo in 1842. "For the next eleven years, 1844-55, Krapf worked in the coastal areas of modern Kenya, first in Mombasa... and then at Rabai, on a ridge a few kilometres inland... In November 1848 Krapf himself set out with eleven bearers on an inland journey to visit the Kamba, traversing the almost waterless thorn scrub that stretches some three hundred kilometres inland from the coast behind Rabai. After twenty-one days march he reached the edge of Ukambani, where the chief, Kivoi, said he had often seen a mountain called Kegnia (Kenya) which was covered with a cold, white substance. When he invited Krapf to a nearby hilltop the missionary could see in the distance both mounts Kilimanjaro and Kenya. The expedition was beset by illness and a mutiny of the porters, and Krapf returned to the coast. Krapf's second journey to Ukambani followed in April 1851. Kivoi agreed to build a mission station on his territory but disaster struck when Kivoi and fifty followers accompanied the missionary to the agreed site for the headquarters. Kivoi's enemies ambushed him in the forest, killed him and put his men to flight. Krapf, left alone and destitute, wandered through the forest, shunned by the Kamba, and eventually limped back to the coast... In 1852 Krapf and another Basel-trained missionary, Johann Erhardt, sailed down the East African coast as far as Kilwa, in the process providing the first new information about the coast since the British coastal survey of 1822-24" (Howgego).

        Autograph letter signed to Latimer Clark

      1860. Very Good. Whitehouse, Edward Orange Wildman. A.L.s. to Latimer Clark. Westminster [London,] April 15, 1860 or 1861[year illegible]. 2- pp. 205 x 129 mm. Remains of mounting present. Provenance: Latimer Clark. Whitehouse was the engineer appointed by Cyrus Field to supervise the design and manufacture of the first Atlantic cable, which ceased to function a few weeks after its installation in 1858. Whitehouse's letter to Clark is largely illegible, but the phrases "joint testimony" and "the line during its manufacture at Chelsea" suggest that Whitehouse is referring to the hearings conducted by the joint committee appointed by the British government to investigate the causes of the cable's failure. In those hearings, blame for the cable's failure was laid largely at the feet of Whitehouse. Origins of Cyberspace 214.

        Théorie mathématique des courants électriques [ET] Études des lois des courants électriques [ET] Notice sur l'appareil d'induction électrique de Ruhmorff

      1860 - [4]-202-[6]-X-201-[8]-X-[2]-40 Paris, L. Hachette & Mallet-Bachelier, 1860 et 1859, in-8, [4]-202-[6]-X-201-[8]-X-[2]-400 pages, demi-basane fauve à coins postérieure, dos à 5 nerfs, Intéressant regroupement de trois œuvres majeures dans l’histoire des théories sur l’électricité : la première édition française des lois d’Ohm, le texte le plus important de Du Moncel sur l’application pratique des lois électriques, et une quatrième édition de son introduction à la bobine de Ruhmkorff, un générateur électrique qui révolutionna les expériences électriques au milieu du XIXe siècle. En 1827, Georg Simon Ohm (1789-1854), dans Die galvanishe Kette, mathematisch bearbeitet établit les lois fondamentales du courant électrique : loi de la longueur, loi de la section et loi des courants dérivés, aujourd’hui plus généralement connue sous nom de loi d’Ohm. L’édition française, publiée 23 ans après l’édition originale allemande fut donnée par Jean-Mothée Gaugain. Le premier texte de Du Moncel, inventeur prolifique d’appareils électriques et un des premiers et meilleurs vulgarisateurs français sur le sujet, débute par une exposition des lois d’Ohm. Son second texte, ici en quatrième édition (la première avait paru en 1855) constitue, à l’époque, une étude particulièrement précoce sur la bobine que Ruhmkorff inventa en 1851. L’ouvrage est richement illustré. Bon exemplaire de ce recueil historique intéressant, portant sur le premier contreplat, l’ex-libris de James Boyd Gilmore, et le cachet, annulé, de l'Institut Catholique de Paris.

        Grand Trunk Railway of Canada, Victoria Bridge, over the river St. Lawrence at Montreal

      London: John Weale, 1860. Lithograph printed in two tints by Kell Brothers, with touches of hand-colouring, from a drawing by S. Russel. Fine condition, but inscription cut into with the loss of two letters. Provenance: Thos. Wise (presentation inscription on verso of print 'Presented by The Auth[or] / to Thos Wise") A presentation copy of this spectacular print from the 'Construction of the Great Victoria Bridge in Canada', a rare and sumptuously produced work on what was once the longest bridge in the world. Published in 1860, Construction of the Great Victoria Bridge in Canada , is a monument both to a great 19th-century engineering achievement and also to the fascination with new technologies and techniques that characterized the period. This great work was illustrated with several fine views of the various stages of practical construction of the bridge and highly detailed engineers' plans covering all the technical aspects of the project. James Stephenson and Alexander M. Ross were the engineers for the bridge; James Hodges built it for the contractors Sir Thomas Peto, Thomas Brassey and Edward Ladd Betts. Despite the great natural difficulties, not the least of which was the river icing up in winter, the builders encountered in its construction, the bridge was opened to passenger carrying rail traffic on December 19, 1859.

Again in Bartlett, on p.198 exhibit 68, figure 63 he shows the exact illustration found our copy of Matsuura being entertained by several Ainu peoples. .

The book is enclosed in a more recent indigo-blue Chitsu folding case with bone clasps. *** WHO WAS MATSUURA Takeshiro [1818-1888]: "The author was an explorer who went as far north as Ezo [modern day Hokkaido before it was named "Hokkaido"]. He was later commissioned by the Shogunate to survey the topography of Hokkaido in 1885, and then appointed judge at Hakodate and concurrently secretary of the bureau that was established to give names to various parts of Hokkaido in 1868. He wrote many books on his travels, most noted of which is TOZAI EZO NIKKI: DIARY OF EAST AND WEST HOKKAIDO."

        Darwin, On the Origin of Species. In a complete volume of The Edinburgh Review 1860

      Edinburgh Review, 1860, Volume 111., 1860, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good Condition, First Edition. The Darwin article is 45 pages. Octavo. The complete volume 111 (556pp, index). Bound in a late 20th century purple buckram binding, gilt lettered. Very sound and firm throughout, no cracked joints or loose pages. Ex university library, with their stamp to the rear of the title page, and tickets on the front endpapers, and class number label to the foot of the spine, otherwise quite unmarked throughout. Overall a very clean and sound volume. Owen's review of Darwin for the Edinburgh Review was considered by many at the time to effectively crush the evolutionist theory. Attacking Darwin's chief supporters, Hooker and Huxley as mere adherents, he claimed that Darwin represented an "abuse of science" whilst ignoring or dismissing Owen's own creationist views. In response Darwin believed Owen to be "spiteful and malignant", though he also admitted to being hurt by Owen's views of him. One of Owen's chief charges was that Darwin had failed to bring any new facts to light, effectively basing his theory on imagination rather than observation. The arguments that raged through the scientific community, and indeed the popular press in the months and years following Darwin's publication were often buttressed by reference to Owen's opposition, and it was effectively the 1870s before Owen's views were widely discounted in public perception. This Edinburgh Review article is one of the cornerstone pieces of writing in the Darwin evolutionary theory debates of the 19th century. Quantity Available: 1.

        A Tale of Two Cities.

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1860. First edition, second issue. Octavo, original red cloth. From the library of stockbroker Henry William Poor, with his bookplates. The firm that he and his father established in 1868, H. V. & H. W. Poor, was a predecessor to the business that eventually became Standard & Poor's. Octavo, 19th-century full morocco. Gilt titles and tooling to the spine, front and rear panels, inner dentelles, topedge gilt, marbled endpapers. A very good copy with the joints and corners rubbed. With 16 plates by H.K. Browne. A nice example with provenance. The most famous and possibly the most popular of Dickens's novels, A Tale of Two Cities shows a master of dramatic narrative extracting gold from the ore of history. If the bloody tableau of the French Revolution were not in itself sufficient for a dozen novels, Dickens added to it a professional resurrectionist, an authentic ogress, and an antihero as convincingly flawed as any in modern literature. Here, too, are all of Dickens's recurring themes -- imprisonment, injustice, and cataclysmic violence, resurrection and the renunciation that makes renewal possible.

        Chemin de fer du Nord. Ligne de Paris à Compiègne par Chantilly. Petites vues photographiques

      - oblong, (1)f de titre, (1)f Sans lieu, ni date [c.1860], in-4, oblong, (1)f de titre, (1)f d'index, 75 photographies (n°1 à 74 + 1bis, 11bis, 66bis, 69bis), demi-chagrin vert, dos à nerfs orné muet, titre imprimé sur le premier plat, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque), Une carte illustrée de 7 épreuves miniatures et 74 petites photographies. Tirage à 25 exemplaires par ordre de M. le Baron James de Rothschild (1792-1868). Exemplaire n°4 offert à Monsieur P. Hottinguer, un des membres de la grande famille de banquiers, originaire de Zurich. Il devrait s'agir de Philippe Rodolphe Hottinguer (1806 à Paris - 1878 à Paris), son fils Paul (1855-1930), étant trop jeune à l’époque. Joint: 2 cyanotypes sur papier calque, représentant l'hippodrome et le viaduc de Chantilly (15,5 x 20cm et 15 x 21,5cm). Ces clichés, dans le style de Baldus, étaient tirés sur un papier ordinaire car utilisés comme outil de travail. La compagnie des chemins de fer du Nord a été créée en 1845 par le banquier James de Rothschild (1792-1868), Jean-Henri Hottinguer et Edward Blount, afin d’assurer le trafic vers la région Nord, et en particulier vers les régions minières. La première ligne joignant Paris à Douai et Lille (1846) fut vite étendue vers Valenciennes, Gand, Amiens et Boulogne (1847). La compagnie des chemins de fer du Nord absorba peu à peu les autres compagnies de la région, et le réseau fut rapidement l’un des plus denses et des plus actifs en France. La ligne Paris-Compiègne via Chantilly fut mise en service en 1859. Jean Henri Hottinguer (1803-1866), frère de Philippe Rodolphe, fut Régent de la Banque de France, puis directeur de la banque familiale. Il participa à l'aventure du chemin de fer, et sa famille fut très présente dans les conseils d'administration des différentes compagnies. En 1830, les Hottinguer reçurent l’autorisation de construire l'une des premières lignes de chemin de fer, Epinal-Canal de Bourgogne. Ils participèrent aussi au Paris-Saint-Germain des Pereire, et se lancèrent ensuite dans la Compagnie du Centre. Ils furent à l'origine, avec les Rothschild, de la Compagnie du Nord, du Paris-Orléans, du Paris-Rouen et du Paris-Lyon. Notre exemplaire a donc été offert par le Baron Rothschild à l’un de ses associés dans l’entreprise de la construction du réseau ferré nord. La Bibliothèque Nationale possède l’exemplaire n°2 de cet ouvrage, offert à M. G. Dalon, et provenant de la collection Georges Sirot (cote RES VE-1427-8). Elle possède aussi l’exemplaire n°2 des « Chemins de fer du Nord. Ligne Paris à Boulogne » (1855), offert également à M. G. Dalon, provenant de la même collection et comportant 50 photographies (cote RES VE-1368-1). Ces deux exemplaires sont répertoriés par Bernard Marbot, dans sa « Liste des albums de la collection Sirot » (Paris, 1983). Si Marbot attribue l’album de la ligne Paris-Boulogne à Baldus, en revanche, il laisse celui de la ligne de Paris-Compiègne anonyme. Cependant, la notice actuelle de la BN attribue aussi ce dernier album à Baldus. En consultant l’exemplaire de la ligne Paris-Boulogne, on constate que sept photographies sont effectivement signées par Baldus ; tandis qu’aucune photographie n’est signée dans l’exemplaire de la ligne Paris-Compiègne. Cette attribution a-t-elle été faite par extension ? Par ailleurs, la signature de l’une des photographies de la ligne Paris-Boulogne est rognée (n°21 « Vue de Saint Leu l’Esserent »), ce qui laisse supposer que d’autres signatures ont pu disparaître. Et, en effet, la BNF attribue 36 épreuves de cet album à Édouard Baldus, dans son catalogue d’exposition « Des photographes pour l’Empereur » (sous la direction de Sylvie Aubenas, 2004). R. Malcom Daniel, dans son ouvrage « The photographic Railway albums of Edouard Baldus » (2002), examine les différents albums du Chemin de fer du Nord qui ont été attribués à Baldus. Il en distingue six dont trois comportent de grandes photographies et trois autres de petits clichés. A cette distinction s’ajoute cell [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Map of the United Counties of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington, Canada West from actual Surveys under the Direction of H. F. Walling

      Kingston, Canada West: Putnam & Walling Publishers, 1860. Lithographed map, full original hand-colouring, folding in 36 sections, backed onto linen at a contemporary date, edged with green silk ribbon. A fine large-scale map of Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Counties in Canada, including a large view of the city of Kingston. Ristow devotes an entire chapter to the work of Henry Walling in American Maps and Mapmakers (pp. 327-338.), noting that Walling, along with Robert Pearsall Smith, "unquestionably made the greatest contributions to town and county mapping" during the period between 1850 and 1880: Ristow's remarks concentrate on Walling's contribution to the mapping of the United States, but are equally applicable to his work in Canada. This map of the counties in Canada West was the most accurate and detailed map of the area that had yet been assembled. The map includes a large inset and detailed town plan of Kingston (with an adjacent business directory), together with insets of 28 other towns in the area. There is also a table of distances. Eight uncoloured vignettes of important county buildings are also included and there are business directories for at least five of the other towns depicted. The map is here presented as a case map, sectioned and linen-backed, rather than in wall map form, thus preserving the beauty of the original colouring, and without the varnish that tends to be such an unwelcome feature of wall maps of the period. Cf. Ristow American Maps and Mapmakers pp.327-338; not in Rumsey.

First edition in English, the most important work of the German Protestant missionary and explorer Johann Ludwig Krapf (1810-1881), who arrived in Ethiopia in 1837 before moving on to Cairo in 1842. "For the next eleven years, 1844-55, Krapf worked in the coastal areas of modern Kenya, first in Mombasa. and then at Rabai, on a ridge a few kilometres inland. In November 1848 Krapf himself set out with eleven bearers on an inland journey to visit the Kamba, traversing the almost waterless thorn scrub that stretches some three hundred kilometres inland from the coast behind Rabai. After twenty-one days march he reached the edge of Ukambani, where the chief, Kivoi, said he had often seen a mountain called Kegnia (Kenya) which was covered with a cold, white substance. When he invited Krapf to a nearby hilltop the missionary could see in the distance both mounts Kilimanjaro and Kenya. The expedition was beset by illness and a mutiny of the porters, and Krapf returned to the coast. Krapf's second journey to Ukambani followed in April 1851. Kivoi agreed to build a mission station on his territory but disaster struck when Kivoi and fifty followers accompanied the missionary to the agreed site for the headquarters. Kivoi's enemies ambushed him in the forest, killed him and put his men to flight. Krapf, left alone and destitute, wandered through the forest, shunned by the Kamba, and eventually limped back to the coast. In 1852 Krapf and another Basel-trained missionary, Johann Erhardt, sailed down the East African coast as far as Kilwa, in the process providing the first new information about the coast since the British coastal survey of 1822-24" (Howgego).

        Britton & Rey's Map of the State of California

      San Francisco: Lithographed by Britton & Rey, 1860. Lithographed map. Linen-backed. Extremely rare map of California. George H. Goddard came to California in 1850. In 1855, he surveyed a part of the boundary between California and Utah Territory (now Nevada). He later surveyed for the Western Pacific Railroad and for John Charles Fremont. He also surveyed most of the important passes Sierra Nevada Mountains. Mount Goddard still bears the name of this important early surveyor. In 1855, Goddard compiled a manuscript map of California on a scale of two miles to the inch. The map was a remarkable improvement on the best available maps, so much so that Marlette, the State Surveyor General petitioned the California legislature to purchase Goddard's map, stating that nowhere else could so complete and extensive a map be obtained. After the legislature rejected the proposal, Goddard submitted a version of the manuscript to Britton & Rey, who lithographed and published it for the first time in 1857. Among its many distinctions, it was the first map to accurately locate Lake Tahoe (here Lake Bigler), derived from Goddard's own surveys in the Sierra Nevada. The map shows towns and settlements, trails, wagon roads, and county boundaries. Relief is indicated by hachures; numerous spot elevations are given; and physical features are named. The scale is 1 inch to 24 miles. Coverage includes the western half of Utah Territory and a northwestern corner of New Mexico Territory--- the area comprising the future State of Nevada. The wealth of information which now appears throughout California in the present 1860 edition (stated on the map as the third edition) graphically discloses the extent to which large portions of this vast and hitherto empty land had been peopled. Gold had swiftly done its work. The Goddard map is a fitting monument to the frenzied activity and achievements of the gold seekers, and with it the purely Gold Rush phase of California cartography comes to an end. No example of either the 1858 second edition or the 1860 third edition have apparently been offered on the market in the past half century; only the Thomas W. Streeter copy of the 1857 first edition has appeared on the market in that time period. An exceptionally rare and important California map. Gold Region, 302; Wheat, Transmississippi, 921; Heckrotte, California 49, 36; Streeter Sale, 2819; Phillips, America, p. 185.

William Henry Fox Talbot (11 February 1800 ?- 17 September 1877) was a British scientist, inventor and photography pioneer who invented the salted paper and calotype processes, precursors to photographic processes of the later 19th and 20th centuries. His work in the 1840s on photomechanical reproduction led to the creation of the photoglyphic engraving process, the precursor to photogravure. He was the holder of a controversial patent which impacted the early development of commercial photography in Britain. He was also a noted photographer who contributed to the development of photography as an artistic medium. He published The Pencil of Nature (1844?-46), which was illustrated with original salted paper prints from his calotype negatives, and made some important early photographs of Oxford, Paris, Reading, and York.

        IL POLITECNICO di CARLO CATTANEO -Repertorio mensile di studj applicati alla prosperit? e cultura sociale. SECONDA SERIE 1860-1865 - tutto il pubblicato, Milano, Editori del Politecnico, 1860

      - La rivista fu la creatura di CARLO CATTANEO, uno dei grandi protagonisti della cultura lombarda risorgimentale e delle Cinque giornate di Milano. In questa iniziativa c'è tutto il pensierio "Illuminato" di CATTANEO ed il suo tentativo di "incivilire" attraverso la CONOSCENZA. Elio Vittorini lo defini' "IL PIU' BEL PERIODICO DI CULTURA E DI SCIENZA CHE AVESSE A QUEL TEMPO L'EUROPA" tanto che nel 1945 - ad un secolo di distanza - uso' lo stesso titolo per la sua grande rivista politica in piena ricostruzione italiana del dopoguerra. In queste annate notevole fu il contributo di alcuni importanti uomini di cultura (PIETRO MAESTRI, PAOLO MARZOLO, PAOLO MANTEGAZZA, ELIA LOMBARDINI, CODAZZA, BIONDELLI BERNARDINO, COMELLI FEDERICO, STOPPANI A., COLOMBANI FRANCESCO, CARLO POSSENTI, DE FILIPPI, BALSAMO CRIVELLI), ecc.ecc. E' sempre ben evidente l'approccio positivo degli uomini di cultura e di scienza del periodo (magistralmente orientati da CATTANEO a "proporre" soluzioni o quanto meno a "tentare" - essenze della vera e sana politica.) Ricordiamo che CATTANEO, in seguito a contrasti con l'editore abbandono' la direzione nel 1863 , sostituito da FRANCESCO BRIOSCHI. La rivista cesser? poi completamente nel 1865. La collezione che presentiamo è cosi' composta TUTTI FASCICOLI SCIOLTI IN BUONE CONDIZIONI CON FOGLI IN BARBE dimensioni 16 x 24 (strappetti e macchioline varie ma interni buoni) e leggibili ANNO 1860 - pag. 1-670 - (fascicoli 43-54) ANNATA COMPLETA ANNO 1861 - pag. 1-700 - (fascicoli 55-66) mancano n. 58.59.60 ANNO 1862 - pag. 1-532 - (fascicoli 67-78) ANNATA COMPLETA ANNO 1863 - pag. 1-574 - (fascicoli 79-90) ANNATA COMPLETA ANNO 1864 - pag. 1.600 - (fascicoli 961-102) ANNATA COMPLETA ANNO 1865 - pag. 1-548 - (fascicoli 103-114) meno 103,104,110,113.

        Narrative of the Earl of Elgin's Mission to China and Japan in The Year's 1857, '58, '59.

      8vo. 645pp. + 2pp. ads. Very good indeed in publisher's dark green pebble grain cloth titled and decorated in gilt to spine anf ront board. The lightest of sunning to spine panel and a little fraying at the spine ends. Sharp and clean. Brown glazed endpapers, bookplate of noted collector Charles Walker Andrews to front pastedown. Traces of some careless opening of leaves here and there, neat ink ownership to upper right corner of title page with some transfer to the tissue guard, colour frontispiece depicting a winter scene in Japan. Internally clean, a very handsome copy. Illustrated throughout with full page plates, and numerous in text maps and engravings. Oliphant was Elgin's Secretary in 1857, a year that was to prove pretty crowded for the British Empire, The Indian Mutiny and a series of military actions in Japan including the storming of Tientsin and of course, the wanton destruction of the Summer Palace. Between India and China it's a wonder there was an Empire by 1860. Elgin gave to order to destroy the Summer Palace, arguaby one of the most beautiful and certainly one of the most wealthy places on earth in an effort to dissuade the Chinese from kidnapping and torturing British citizens after the dreaded Peking Board of Punishments tortured Parkes and Loch (Oliphant's successor as Private Secretary to Elgin). Gordon of Khartoum, as he was later to become renowned, was present at the destruction:##"We went out, and, after pillaging it, burned the whole place, destroying in a vandal-like manner most valuable property which [could] not be replaced for four millions. We got upward of £48 apiece prize money...I have done well. The [local] people are very civil, but I think the grandees hate us, as they must after what we did the Palace. You can scarcely imagine the beauty and magnificence of the places we burnt. It made one?s heart sore to burn them; in fact, these places were so large, and we were so pressed for time, that we could not plunder them carefully. Quantities of gold ornaments were burnt, considered as brass. It was wretchedly demoralising work for an army."##Elgin reputedly didn't do badly out of the sacking himself, and one might be forgiven for thinking it was genetic, seeing as it was his father who denuded the Parthenon of marbles and thus became famous. "Famous" here being a term that translates as "Really unpopular in Greece."#A handsome copy of a book covering the events of Elgin's mission, ongoing repercussions of the First Opium War, the commencement of hostilities in the Second and the mighty clash of cultures and ideologies that ended thousands of year of tradition on one side, and a long unbroken record of conquest on the other.

Other women have oval or more "Northern" type faces, with Manchu-type silk gowns. Each is quite unique, and a delight to behold. The have a very natural look although posed, they seem to be very real and true-to-life. They lack that common "stiff & posed" look that detracts. * Early photographs of Chinese are always scarce and seldom found on the market. This group represents refined & clearly upper-class Chinese in the most impressive silken gowns. Careful observation yields that most all wear earrings and rings, one even wears very long silver finger-extenders, another wears rings on every finger ! The leisure class recording an important moment in their life. One even holds what looks like a Western book.

        Nadar Contemplates A Floor Plan (ALS)

      Paris 1860 - Paris; 1860. One page ALS. Nadar (the pseudonym of Gaspard-Felix Tournacon) writes to his contractor. Translated in part: " .It seems that we can not install our fireplaces without boring through our flooring and making an opening into our neighbors below. As far as doing so, Mademoiselle de Saraza removed this possibility in her lease. Do you want to have someone examine the matter so we can complete this project as quickly as possible? I put the matter into your hands Another point - Do think we should reconsider the position of the stairs? In doing so, we would have a quieter and more pleasant day as visitors would not have the view of this horrible little yard when they come by. The fees are roughly the same, doing so would benefit everyone, and the cost is well worth it "Nadar moved from his apartment/ studio to a large atelier at 35 Boulevard des Capucines in 1860. The costs of what eventually became a lavish reconstruction project were quite nearly ruinous –as this letter indicates they could be—but the final product, which saw Nadar’s gigantic signature emblazoned on the glass facade of what could reasonably be described as his palace, put him firmly into the public mind as the foremost practitioner of the photographic portrait, which soon became a fashion. So: a one page ALS, with a strong, clear signature, from the period when Nadar was on the brink of the eminence he eventually achieved. [Attributes: Signed Copy]
