The periodical was issued semi-monthly; each issue includes lecture notes from M.E. Chevreul's "Cours de teintures des Gobelins," here in its first printing. Chevreul's colour studies made him one of the most influential scientists in France during the nineteenth century. From 1824 he was director of dyeing at the Manufactures Royales des Gobelins where he taught chemistry for nearly sixty years. "Chevreul's immediate task at Gobelins was to work on the improvement of colour intensity and fastness in wools. He had been selected for this position because he was an outstanding chemist; and his initial studies were on the chemical aspects of dyes and dyeing, attempting to place the art of dyeing on a more rational basis than the complicated and empirical procedures then employed...Chevreul rendered an important service to the dye industry during the years prior to the advent of synthetic dyestuff" (DSB). With nearly two hundred specimens of various colour dyes on paper, cotton, silk, rope and a few illustrating the tanning and colouring of leather. The final volume investigates a large number of contrasting colours on the same type of sample (Échantillon de Papier). Fragile spines somewhat worn but an excellent copy in original condition, with many gatherings unopened. A desirable copy of a rare and important work. Bibliotheca Tinctoria 1218.

Frontis. port., xii, 431 pp., fold. map.. 1860 Published the year he was executed, this is => Walker's own account of his filibustering expedition to take over Nicaragua, after having failed to wrest Baja and Sonora from Mexico. Walker was a man who wanted his own country and did not let initial failure deter him. His attempt to take Nicaragua was successful at first but a combination of local resistance, the Costa Rican army, and mercenaries in the employ of Cornelius Vanderbilt (who viewed Walker as a threat to his own interests in Central America) brought about Walker's downfall.After a brief respite back in the U.S., where he was welcomed as a hero, Walker, the quintessential filibusterer, returned to Central America wanting to capture Honduras. He died there trying.The map (14" x 16") is in four colors and is titled "Colton's Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras, San Salvador & Costa Rica. Publisher's brick colored textured cloth stamped in blind. Top and bottom of spine pulled and frayed. Some foxing at front and rear. Newspaper articles at front and rear of volume.

        Alphabet Lottery Cards

      Mexico: n.p., n.d. (1860's). Very good. Set of 24 lottery alphabet cards about 1½ by 3 inches, lithographed in black on white stock and mounted on stiff card. The 24 cards cover the entire Spanish alphabet, except for Rr, but are complete as issued. Each card shows a lithographed scene, sometimes attributed to Yriarte, beneath which is the letter of the alphabet, followed by a word beginning with that letter, then a humorous verse, sometimes with a play on words. The lotería is well known in Mexico, a game a bit like our Bingo but which uses cards with pictures and sayings instead of numbered balls. The players each have a card with some of the card images on them--the tabla--and they mark the drawn cards on the tabla with beans, coins or other markers. In the 1880's Don Clemente Gallo issued lottery cards in what have become more or less standard images. Earlier cards are unbelievably scarce. This set of 24 cards is complete. Even the last card shows a vendor of the uncut sheets bearing the 24 images with the caption: 'x et z estivale la geta segun dicen, lector, los colegiales Acabó el alfabeto, mas tus reales Espero sepultar en mi gareta' 'The alphabet is finished now, but your gold I hope to bury in my attic.' Lottery cards prior to the 1880s are scarce, and variants such as this alphabet set are downright rare. We have been able to find only one other set, in the Southwest Special Collections of the University of New Mexico, but no copies of the tabla with which they are associated. The possible Yriarte connection derives from the description in the University archive. Captioned in archaic Spanish.

"In 1857 he obtained his first official position when he was engaged for three months by the princely court of Detmold as pianist-in-residence and conductor of the choir society, part-time duties he performed for three years. This post provided valuable practical experience and left him enough time for his own work… (including) the two delightful Serenades for orchestra" (Karl Geiringer). In 1853 Brahms had given his first concert at Leipzig and drew the attention of the publishing firm of Breitkopf and Haertel, which undertook the publication of his compositions.McCorkle, 31-36.Wrappers and spine with light wear, closed tear to rear cover; interior bright and fine.

        The Dinner Question: or, How to Dine Well and Economically. Combining the rudiments of Cookery with useful hints on dinner giving and serving, and other household words of advice: garnished with anecdotes of eminent cooks and epicures as well as wise saws in gastronomy from the great masters

      London: Routledge, Warne and Routledge, 1860. In the original boards. First edition. 8vo., original pictorial paper covered boards, rebacked with new endpapers. Some light browning with rubbing and bumping to the covers, but a rare survivial with the original boards. 'Tickletooth's' focus is on "Plain instructions for the preparation of Plain dishes at the least possible expense". She writes that Soyer came closest to providing this in his Shilling Cookery for the Million but that he was too French and it was inappropriate for "many who have a natural love of simple and succulent English good cheer". The book covers many aspects of domestic life from furnishings, care of the teeth, kitchen utensils, the philosophy of cooking followed by many good sound British recipes, plenty being 'a la Tickletooth'. Also included are detailed reviews of various places to dine out in London and the 'suburbs' in Victorian times.

        The Imperial Atlas of Modern Geography. An Extensive Series of Maps, Embracing the Most Recent Discoveries and the Latest Political Divisions of Territory in all Parts of the World. Compiled and Engraved from the Most Authentic Sources

      London: Blackie & Son.. Good+ with no dust jacket. 1860. First Edition. Hardcover. Modern? (ish) half leather, bound with a heavy plain black unlettered leather spine, with 4 raised bands, and corners over burgundy cloth boards. Reinforced inner hinge in blue 'cloth' with marbled paper endpapers stuck down to white card, and similar to the rear endpapers - which in this case should be 'endcards'. These 'endcards' have the half title and the last page stuck down to these white card endpapers. Possibly an Amateur binder? . Large Folio/Small Elephant Folio. Approx 38 cm x 31 cm (15" x 12.5"). (xi) + [i] + 100 maps plus Index 117 pp. These 100 numbered maps are hand-coloured in outline, mainly on double-page sheets, but some on single page sheets and some are 'North' and 'South' (ie: half a map) on individual double pages. All page fore-edges are gilt. The maps are generally VG but all have uniform and light brown (dust engrained) edges to the blank margins. A lot of this will rub off. Some of the maps have a little light foxing here and there. There is a large tear, repaired with now yellowing sellotape, across Map XXX (30) - A single page map 'The Shores of the Mediterranean, the Adriatic and the Black Sea'. There is a small ink blot to the bottom edge of the 'General Map of Asia'; on the map 'Persia, Afghanistan and Beloochistan' there is an old ink circle around the name 'Jellalabad' and an ink cross in the margin marking this; and some pencil notes on the 'General Map of South America' - easily erased I should imagine. The rest of the Atlas is unmarked. Double page maps measure circa 54 cm x 37 cm. ALL Maps are mounted on raised lengths of paper ensuring there are NO centre staples or similar. Great Source material for researchers /students, and individually lovely pictorial memorials of a world now past - lots of blank uncharted territories worldwide. Great for framing. Very Heavy.

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

      Follett, Foster and Company, Columbus, Ohio 1860 - Very good hardcover copy of "Political Debates between Hon. Abraham Lincoln and Hon. Stephen A. Douglas 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". Included is a typed transcript (date uncertain) of a two-page letter sent from a man in Memphis to his wife on April 17th, 1865, the day after President Lincoln was shot. It gives details of the happenings in Memphis on that day and the general mood of the city's inhabitants as well as the specific feelings of the writer. This edition of the book is the same as the first minus the blind stamped floral design in the corners of the stamping on the front cover. The rest is the same. Gilt lettering on spine dulled. The cloth at the top edge of the spine has come loose about 1/2 inch on both sides. Rubbing on the covers. Top fore corner worn and slightly upturned. Foxing from minor to moderate depending on the section of the book. Previous owner stamp on front paste-down and signature on front free end paper. Spine otherwise solid and pages otherwise clean. I do not have access to the bibliography of works about Lincoln. My research makes me think this is the second edition or the first printing of the third edition. All Follett editions were printed in 1860. The '2' is at the bottom of page 13. There is a rule above the publisher's mark on the copyright page. Two pages of advertisements in the front. This book of debates sold amazingly well for political writings of the not-particularly-literate time period and absolutely affected Lincoln's chances for winning the presidency. Remember, these debates were not presidential debates, but debates for a Senate seat from Illinois. Enjoy these two pieces of American history! For Sale. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A BOY'S ASCENT OF MONT BLANC. With a Memoir of the Author by Edmund Yates.

      London. Ward, Lock and Tyler, (1860).(1860), small 8vo, 165 x 105 mm, 6½ x 4 inches, frontispiece and 22 text illustrations, pages: xxxvi, 299, bound in original publisher's red cloth with black stamped decoration to spine and upper cover, illustration and lettering in gilt with a green and a blue initial to upper cover, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, all edges gilt, brown coated endpapers. Rebacked expertly with original spine laid on, new cloth showing at head and tail and on hinges, spine slightly darkened, spine gilt dull, small dark stain at lower edge of upper cover, 3 other very small stains, endpapers chipped at edges, 2 names on front endpapers, another on reverse of frontispiece, frontispiece and title page faintly foxed, small light brown stain affects 10 pages, otherwise contents clean and bright, binding tight and firm. A good sound copy. This is not the story of a boy's ascent of Mont Blanc, rather it is a history and description of ascents of Mont Blanc for the instruction and amusement of boys, including the famous ascent by the author in 1851 which is recounted in detail. Albert Smith (1816 - 1860) had a passion for Mont Blanc and after his ascent he produced an illustrated lecture based on his experiences. This ran for six years at the Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly and made him a rich man, starting a craze for Mont Blanc. His book on Mont Blanc was originally published by David Bogue in 1852 and went into many editions. This 'Boy's' edition which is scarce was published the same year as an edition for adults also with the Yates memoir. See Neate, Mountaineering and its Literature, No. 718 and 719. See also Appendix III. 1 copy listed in Copac (Major Libraries in the UK) in the National Library of Scotland; OCLC, World Catalogue, list 2 copies, 1 in Zentralbibliothek Zürich and 1 in National Library of Scotland.
