        Grande Illustrazione del Lombardo-Veneto ossia storia delle città, dei borghi, comuni, castelli, ecc. fino ai tempi moderni.

      Milano, 1860 - Sei volumi di cm. 25, pp. 839 (9); 830; 1244; 1014; 1091; 791. Frontespizio inciso a ciascun volume, 4 piante di città ripiegate (Venezia, Milano, Venezia e Mantova), una veduta di Venezia a doppia pagina, 2 tavole ripiegate, 20 ritratti fuori testo e 977 incisioni xilografiche prevalentemente di vedute, panoramiche, scene storiche e particolari delle città e dei paesi descritti. Elegante legatura coeva in mezza pelle, dorsi lisci con ricchi fregi in oro. Esemplare fresco, genuino ed in ottimo stato di conservazione. Si tratta della seconda edizione, pressochè uguale alla prima e pubblicata contemporaneamente ma che da quest'ultima si differenzia almeno per la presenza dei ritratti. Spesso il numero delle piante fuori testo e dei ritratti varia secondo l'operato del legatore, la nostra copia presenta il maggior numero di tavole possibile. Opera ancor'oggi ricercata per la quantità di informazioni storiche, statistiche e topografiche riguardanti l'alta Italia. Ogni provincia viene descritta dettagliatamente a partire dal capoluogo fino a tutti i centri minori che la compongono. Notevole inoltre l'aspetto vedutistico che risulta una delle maggiori fonti documentarie del tempo soprattutto per quanto concerne la provincia e le zone solitamente meno privilegiate dal punto di vista iconografico. Insieme ormai piuttosto raro a reperirsi completo, anche perché formato da studi monografici che vengono spesso proposti singolarmente. Cfr. Cremonini 164 (che cita 17 ritratti); Catalogo Hoepli, 593: "Opera delle più interessanti e compiute per quel tempo, che illustra le regioni del Lombardo-Veneto sotto tutti gli aspetti, storico, artistico, culturale, economico, ecc". Ormai non comune, soprattutto quando completa di tutte le tavole ed i ritratti come nel presente esemplare (nessuna copia censita recentemente porta un tale numero di ritratti). Esemplare impreziosito inoltre da una legatura assai decorativa. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE ISLAND OF ANTIGUA Revised by J W Norie, 1827

      Antigua [but actually Philadelphia], 1860. Backed with contemporary blue paper. Light foxing and toning. A few small tears in margins. Very good. An unusual lithographic edition of Norie's 1827 revision of this handsome chart, lithographed by Wagner & McGuigan in Philadelphia. A statement in the cartouche reads: "Presented by R.B. Eldridge, Antigua, to Captain Andrew Tyler." The captain's name is accomplished in manuscript. R.B. Eldridge is not listed in Tooley's DICTIONARY OF MAPMAKERS and appears to be unrelated to publisher of charts George Eldridge. It seems most likely that he was rather an Antigua merchant who commissioned a reprint of the chart for complimentary distribution to sea captains. A handsome piece.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Oldenburg, 12. II. 1860. 4 S., 4°. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Umfang- und inhaltsreicher Brief. - „[...] Stephan von Österreich gehörte zu den berühmtesten Mineralsammlern des österreich-ungarischen Reiches, dessen Interesse an den Mineralen bereits mit fünf Jahren erwachte. Nach seiner politischen Ausbildung am Königshof von Wien unternahm er ausgedehnte Erkundungstouren durch das Reich und nutzte während dieser Zeit jede Gelegenheit, berühmte Mineralmuseen und bekannte Mineralfundorte zu besuchen, um seine Sammlung durch eigene Funde oder Käufe zu erweitern. 1845 ehrte der bekannte Mineraloge Wilhelm Ritter von Haidinger seine Bemühungen um die Mineralogie mit der Benennung eines wichtigen Silberminerals und -erzes nach ihm als Stephanit. Die mineralogische Sammlung Stephans von Österreich enthielt bei seinem Tod 1867 rund 20.000 Proben und wurde auf den für damalige Verhältnisse enormen Wert von 300.000 Mark geschätzt. Nach Stephans Tod ging die Mineralsammlung auf das Haus Oldenburg über und wurde bis zu deren Verkauf 1888 an den Unternehmer Carl Rumpff weiter ausgebaut. Nach dessen Tod 1889 wurde die Sammlung schließlich an das Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin übergeben“ (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Stephan Franz Viktor, Erzherzog von Österreich, Schrötter, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        Macchina Magnetica ad Elettro-Calamita Trasversale di Antonio Pacinotti nel 1860 [so titled on upper wrapper].

      FIRST SEPARATE EDITION. Pacinotti's dynamo, considered to be the first practical electric motor and generator from which all modern machines emanate, was the first machine that could produce an even current of electricity, and despite continuous refinement, his basic concept remains at the heart of all modern generators and electric motors.Pacinotti's "reputation was due largely to his invention of a new form of armature used in electric motors and generators. The armature design that Pacinotti first described in a paper published in Nuovo cimento (June 1864) became a key element in the evolution from the magnetoelectric generator to the commercial self-excited dynamo during the next decade. The Pacinotti armature consisted of an iron ring with projecting teeth interspersed with coils which formed a closed series circuit with connections to a commutator. In his paper Pacinotti pointed out that his new machine could be used as either a direct-current motor or a generator" (DSB)."It is the principle of convertability which makes the electric transmission of power possible The application of this law to magneto-electric machines also was first recognised by Pacinotti and was considered by the late James Clerk Maxwell the most important discovery of the age" (A. von Urbanitsky, Electricity in the service of man, p. 616).This pamphlet, with the drophead title "Descrizione di una maccinetta elettro-magnetica. (Estratto dal Nuovo Cimento Fascicolo per Giugno 1864, pubblicato il 3 Maggio 1865)" differs from the periodical publication (vol. 19, pp. 378-384), but both are clearly from the same setting of type.No other copy of this extremely rare separate issue has been traced. Ekelöf catalogue 1277 (1912 edition). Wheeler Gift 1601 (journal issue).8vo, 7 pages, 1 lithographed plate. Original yellow printed wrappers. PRESENTATION COPY, inscribed on the upper wrapper "Al Sig. G. Ferraris, Antonio Pacinotti". Galileo Ferraris (1847-1897) was Pacinotti's colleague and an electrical engineer, notable for his transmission of electric energy over long distances, his invention of the AC induction motor, etc.

        Utazás Kalifornia déli részeiben. Irta --, a Természettudományok Philadelphiai Akadémiája, az Amerikai Philosophiai Társulat s a Bostoni Athenaeum rendes tagja. Egy földképpel, nyolc k?- és nyolc fametszettel. [Travel in Southern California. By --, Regular member of the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, of the American Philosophical Society, and of the Boston Athenæum. With One Map and Eight lithographs and Eight Woodcuts.]

      Lauffer és Stolp (Herz János) 1860 (1859), Pesten (Pest) - First edition. The lithographs were printed in Pest by Haske és Társa. In contemporary green cloth, with gilt spine. (1) [lithograph frontispiece], (11), (1), 2- 191, (3) p., and 7 lithograph plates on sepia and gray toned ground, and one folding lithograph map. Xantus' second North America travelogue, an account of travels in southern California. Xantus writes about the geography, flora and fauna, and also shares his ethnological and historical knowledge about the area. The book is divided into three chapters: "From Los Angeles to Fort Tejon" which includes the description of Los Angeles; "Tejon and Tejon Indian Tribe" with detailed description of history and customs of the tribe, a short dictionary, and about the rock art of the Native Americans; "Baja California Peninsula" concerns with the plants and the animals of the region. The lithograph plates are: "San Fernando Mission", "Native American Blacksmith at Work. In San Fernando", "Native American Weaving. In San Fernando.", "Native Americans Grinding Corn.", "At the Top of Sierra Nevada. On July 13.", "La Jolla.", "Encampment Between Timpa[?] and Todos Santos.", "San Marcos." It is printed on the plates that they were made after Xantus' drawings, however several appear to be copies with slight alterations, from drawings made by R. H. Kern (in Sitgreave's "Report of an Expedition down the Zuni and Colorado Rivers"). John Xantus de Vesey (1825-1894) was a Hungarian exile naturalist and zoologist. He was a Freedom Fighter in the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, and as a result a political refugee in the United States where he arrived in 1852. He became a stretcher-bearer in the US army where he met a surgeon William Alexander Hammond who acted as a collector for the renown zoologist Spencer Fullerton Baird. Through Hammond he became interested in natural history and became a talented collector. In 1859 he made an expedition to Baja California, which was almost unknown at the time. Xantus explored the entire surrounding region and many adjacent islands, he collected numerous unknown species of plants and animals. Baird stated that Xantus made "the addition of a larger number of new animals to our fauna than has been made by one person in any single region of North America before". Several zoological and botanical taxa have been named for him. In 1862 Xantus was sent to the American consulate in the port of Manzanillo in southern Mexico. The consulate was closed two years later and Xantus returned to Hungary with part of his scientific collection that he later donated to the Hungarian National Museum. He became the appointed director of the Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden and worked as a consultant and curator for the Hungarian National Museum. During these years he undertook several collecting trips through Asia and found more species previously unknown to western science.

The second edition, extensively revised and reduced from about 224,000 words to 213,000, was first published in 1845 in the scarlet cloth of John Murray's Colonial and Home Library. It was reprinted in the same series in 1852, the title page now describing it as a new edition, instead of second, although there is no change. The present is the next issue of the same second edition, and is the final text as Darwin left it. The parts from the original stereos are the same, but a postscript, dated 1 February 1860, is added to the preliminaries, and it is in a green cloth case of the same style as the first three editions of the Origin. "The page height is nearly two centimetres greater than before and the wider margins give the book a much better appearance. Inserted advertisements in this edition may be as late as September 1868" (Freeman). In this copy, the advertisements are dated January 1860. Darwin noted in his autobiography that "The voyage of the Beagle has been by far the most important event in my life and has determined my whole career…As far as I can judge of myself I worked to the utmost during the voyage from the mere pleasure of investigation, and from my strong desire to add a few facts to the great mass of facts in natural science. But I was also ambitious to take a fair place among scientific men…The success of this my first literary child always tickles my vanity more than that of any other books."

      John Murray, London 1860, 1860. First Edition. Hardcover. Darwin himself was impressed by Wilberforce's review, describing it as "uncommonly clever", and it set off a significant debate within the British Association, between Wilberforce and T.H.Huxley, that was largely responsible for wider press coverage of Darwin's work and thus bringing it to greater public notice. In total this volume contains 16 articles. Title page, 4 pages contents, 614 pp including index. Bound in original half leather, with marbled boards. A little wear towards top of spine, and a little darkened. A sound text block. A pleasant copy. Quantity Available: 1. Category: Antiquarian Books; NOT FOR OTHER ABE; Inventory No: 187577. .

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.

        Quadrupeds of North America

      1860 - AUDUBON, John James and BACHMAN, John. The Quadrupeds of North America. New York: George R. Lockwood, [1860]. Three volumes. Royal octavo, contemporary three-quarter green morocco gilt, raised bands, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $19,000.Handsome Lockwood octavo edition, illustrated with 155 magnificent hand-colored lithographic plates of American mammals from the polar bear to the buffalo.Having built his reputation with the legendary Birds of America, Audubon began an equally imposing project: to capture on paper the astonishing variety of American mammals. Many of the beautiful hand-colored plates are justly famous, including the polar bear, the American buffalo, and the jaguar. Bachman, Audubon’s long-time collaborator, said of the Quadrupeds, “They are the most beautiful and perfect specimens of the art. I doubt whether there is anything in the world of natural history like them, I do not believe that there is any man living that can equal them” (Ford). The octavo edition of the Quadrupeds, first published by Victor Audubon in 31 separate parts between 1849 and 1854 (as well as in book form those same years), was reissued in 1860 and 1870 by George Lockwood, who had come into possession of the original stones. This present edition is the 1860 imprint, retaining the original Introduction in Volume I (dated 1846), with “1849” on the copyright pages and without Lockwood’s Preface (which appeared in the later edition and is dated 1870). Bannon & Clark, 76. See Ford, 217. Plate impressions fresh and colors true, contemporary morocco bindings handsome. A fine set. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        UTAZAS KALIFORNIA DELI RESZEIBEN

      Pesten [i.e. Budapest], 1860. Original tan pictorial boards, recased. Boards a bit soiled. A touch of light foxing, else very clean internally. An attractive copy. Hungarian Janos Xantus was one of the pioneering ornithologists of California. The present book is the second of two Hungarian publications by Xantus, providing an account of his travels in California and Baja. The other volume, LEVELEI EJSZAKAMERIKABOL..., was also published in Budapest in 1858 and describes his travels throughout the United States. Howes calls that volume, edited by the "incompetent" Istvan Prepost, an "unauthorized" edition of Xantus' letters describing his travels in North America. The letters in this volume focus on California, Baja and Alta, and provide descriptions of California's geology and climate, native Indians, Los Angeles, San Bernardino, San Fernando, Mojave, Fort Tejon, and several places in Baja, including La Paz and Loreto. The plates show Mission San Fernando, Indians working in a blacksmith shop at the mission, a female Indian working a loom, Indians at Tejon, a vista of the Sierra Nevada, a view of a large terraced building at La Jolla, and more. The map shows California from San Francisco south to the tip of Baja. Involved in the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, Xantus came to the U.S. at the end of 1851 and worked as a topographer on the Pacific Railroad Survey, then as a member of the U.S. Coast Survey. He was stationed in California during the coastal survey, and while there made valuable collections of birds for the Smithsonian Institution, including many new species, some of which were named after him. Later he was attached to the U.S. Navy and commanded an expedition to make meteorological observations in certain parts of the Pacific Ocean. During the latter service, which concluded in 1861, he discovered eighty-nine islands and sand banks. He was appointed U.S. consul at Manzanillo, Mexico, and led a scientific research party into the Sierra Madre before permanently returning to his native Hungary in 1864. Not in Pilling or Ayer, despite the linguistic content.
