        Mount Tabor, Little Herman

      - Signed Lower Left: Saml Colman Medium: Watercolor on paper Dimensions: Paper size: 3 3/4" x 6 1/4"; Frame: 9 1/8" x 11 3/4" This deeply atmospheric watercolor beautifully captures a pioneer wagon train as it makes its way across the plains below Mount Tabor, Oregon. The settlers seem to have made camp surrounded by the spectacular landscape of the expansive West. The silence of the prairie, with only the whisper of windblown grasses, is spectacularly conveyed as is the majestic splendor of the infinite sky. Like so many artists that became inspired by the landscape of the West, Samuel Colman came from the east. Born in Portland, Maine, he grew up in New York City, where his father's publishing house on Broadway was a center of activity for artists and writers. His own interest in are was fostered by this early exposure to the New York art world, and after studying for a brief time under Asher B. Durand, Colman painted throughout the 1850s and 1860s in the manner of the Hudson River School. At the very young age of twenty-two, he was named an associate of the National Academy of Design, signaling the acclaim he had already achieved. In 1860, Colman departed for Europe to broaden his artistic repertoire, but it was when he first traveled to the American West, in 1866, that he found one of his greatest sources of inspiration. Spurred by the sights and expanses of the West, in the mid 1880s Colman began a series of trips out west in search of landscape subjects such as this one, done in 1888. The quiet but monumental beauty that he witnessed, and captured on paper, represents a quintessential vision of the American spirit as embodied by the country's vast landscape.

        Memoire sur la fermentation alcoolique.

      Victor Masson, Paris 1860 - First edition, unopened in original printed wrappers, of Pasteur’s definitive proof that alcoholic fermentation is due to the action of a living organism (yeast), and is not a purely chemical process as most chemists since Lavoisier had believed. "What did this memoir add to the first deductions Pasteur had drawn from lactic fermentation? He now asserted that he was dealing with a living microorganism. This was his most original contribution. Having been unable to create life or to change it by means of molecular asymmetry, he had set out to study its reproduction. In doing so he had come to a revolutionary definition: Fermentation is the act of reproduction of the living germs that constitute yeast" (Debré, Louis Pasteur (1994), p. 105)."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 [the offered work]. 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). Pp. 323-426 in Annales de chimie et de physique, Troisième Série, Tome LVIII, 1860. 8vo (226 x 142 mm), pp. 512. Original printed wrappers, uncut and unopened.

        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.

        [A Nestorian Hymn Book Used in Our Congregation in Oroomiah Persia]

      n.p., n.d.. Hardcover. Good. 317p. Old, well-rubbed black leather. 17cm. Moderate general wear. Chaldean(?) text. Our title is taken from an undated 19th century note written on the endpaper by Anna J. Beach who was presenting this book to someone in Pittsfield, New Hampshire. Volume 56 (at page 91) of The Missionary Herald lists Anna J. Beach of Madison, N.Y as having sailed from Boston in February 1860 aboard the bark Smyrniote on her way with Harriet Newell Crawford to the Nestorian mission field to fill vacancies created by sickness and death. We suspect that this item dates around this time or perhaps a bit later.

        The Lake Regions Of Central Africa A Picture Of Exploration

First Edition, Second Issue. An account of Burton?'s 1856-59 expedition in company with John Hanning Speke to central east Africa in search of the the source of the Nile. Setting out from Zanzibar, the expedition endured incredible difficulties and hardships due in part to the untrustworthiness of their followers as to opposion from native tribes before arriving at Lake Tanganyika, the largest of the Central African lakes on February 14, 1858 almost eight months later. Following three months spent exploring the shores of the lake, the return journey was commenced and Speke was detached to verify reports of another lake to the northward, which he only sighted from a distance, and surmised to be the true source of the white Nile. This lake, the Victoria Nyanza, was later proven by Speke to be the source on a subsequent expedition in company with James Augustus Grant, but his surmise led to a bitter and celebrated feud with Burton. In the preface Burton dismisses Speke as being no more than a subordinate on the expedition, never having held the position of surveyor as he claimed upon his return to England. Penzer pp. 65-66. Hosken p. 34.. 1st Edition. Hardcover.

      [England Frame: 37.5 x 39.6 cm; letter: 17.5 x 12.5 cm.. ca. 1860?] Manuscript letter from the critic and artist to publisher and art dealer Joseph Hogarth, starting out, "I have brought you back your Lewis's, with thanks for loan of them," and continuing with a discussion of the Ruskin etchings Hogarth "may have — any of them — whenever you like" although Ruskin will "neither raise nor lower" the prices. (The list of etchings described as being enclosed has not been preserved here, but => the letter makes it clear that Ruskin would really prefer to keep them if he can't "exchange [them] for Durers.")

The second edition is not so named on title but simply labelled 'Fifth Thousand'; Freeman records that 3000 copies were printed following the 1250 copies of the first edition. Although Darwin considered this edition a rapid revision to meet demand, his changes are much more than mere correction. The most famous alteration is the dilution of the whale bear passage on p.184, which Darwin later regretted although he never restored it. With the signed and ruled advertisements which Freeman considers the first issue. Freeman 113 variant a; Freeman F376.
