      . . Vollständiges Exemplar von Bunsens monumentalem "Bibelwerk"; sehr selten. Das Werk zerfällt in drei Abteilungen: I. Die Bibel. Übersetzung und Erklärung (= Bd. 1 - 4); II. Bibelurkunden (= Bd. 5 - 8); III. Bibelgeschichte. Das ewige Reich Gottes und das Leben Jesu (= Bd. 9). Bunsens Absicht war es eine umfangreich kommentierte Neuübersetzung der Bibel auf Basis des Luther-Textes nach dem neuesten Stand der Forschung zu geben und diese durch urkundliches Quellenmaterial zu ergänzen. "Fortgesetzter methodischer Entstellung des richtigen geschichtlichen Sinnes entgegenzutreten, der Gemeinde die echten und gesicherten Resultate der fortgeschrittenen Wissenschaften auf sprachlichem und sachlichem Gebiet aufzuschließen: das war von Anfang an der Zweck des Bibelwerks" (Vorwort zu Bd. 4). Bunsen erlebte den Abschluss seines Werks nicht mehr. Nach seinem Tod (1860) übernahmen Adolf Kamphausen und Heinrich Julius Hoffmann die Herausgabe. - Als Ergänzung zum Bibelwerk erschien noch ein kleiner Atlas mit 10 Karten sowie eine Würdigung durch Baehring. - Papier gebräunt u. teils auch stockfleckig. Die Bibel mit gelegentlichen Anmerkungen in Bleistift. ** Bestellungen bis 14 Uhr versenden wir am selben Tag. - Schweizer Postkonto vorhanden. **

        Autograph Letter Signed "C. Rigaut de Genouilly" asking "Mon cher Colonel" for Assistance with Obtaining a Pension for Mme Charbonnier, a Widow of a Naval Department Administrator].

      Paris 1860 - Paris, 14 December 1860. Octavo (ca. 24x19 cm). 3 pp. Black ink on watermarked blue laid paper. Mild fold marks, otherwise a very good letter. A private letter from French admiral Pierre Rigaut de Genouilly, the commander of French naval forces during the opening phase of the Cochinchina campaign (1858-62), which laid the foundation for the French conquest of Vietnam. Appealing to a colonel who was in connection with marshal Jacques Louis Randon, French minister of defence in 1859-1867, Rigaut de Genouilly asks him to show the minister the request (apparently about a pension) of a widow "of an administrator of the navy department, whom I knew as an excellent State servant, as a commissioner of the navy aboard many ships and as the treasurer of the Invalides de la Marine. Furthermore the widowed Madame Charbonnier is the daughter of a sea captain, who fought during the First French Empire and who I met over the Algiers expedition". Rigaut de Genouilly also mentions some of their common acquaintances, according his correspondent¿s brother who was serving on board a French naval vessel at the moment. "Rigault de Genouilly took command of French naval forces in China and Cochinchina and in 1857 held Canton with the British, who had joined France in declaring war on China. The following year, as vice admiral, he once again attacked Tourane; he was told to secure it with the forces at his disposal and he was not to negotiate with the Vietnamese. On Sept. 1, 1858, he took the city and would have proceeded to the capital at Hue, but his ships could not navigate the shallow river inland; instead, he turned south to conquer Saigon and achieved his objective with the help of Spanish troops, Feb. 17, 1859. With his men debilitated by the climate and disease, his supplies low, and no reinforcements forthcoming, he could neither consolidate his conquests nor bring the Vietnamese to surrender. The following October 20 he asked to be relieved of his post. Back in France, Rigault de Genouilly became a senator (1860), was promoted to admiral (1864), and was named minister of the marine and of the colonies (1867). In the Franco-German War (1870-71), he rejected his appointment as commander in chief of an expedition to the Baltic Sea and went to Spain to live out his years" (Encyclopaedia Britannica online).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Dor. Czermak").

      O. O. u. D. - 1 S. Gr.-8vo. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten: "Aus dem beiliegenden Briefe an Hrn. Braumüller werden Sie ersehen, in welche peinliche Lage mich eine Unachtsamkeit u. Übereilung versetzt hat. Ich kann als Mann von Ehre, wie Sie begreifen werden, nun nicht mehr daran denken, die Unterhandlung mit Hrn. Braumüller zu dem gewünschten Ende zu führen. Gegebene Versprechen darf man nicht brechen - freilich soll man gegebene Versprechen auch nicht momentan vergessen. Das ist wahr [.]". - Czermak war als Professor für Physiologie in Graz, Krakau und Pest tätig. 1860 setzte er seine wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen in einem Prager Privatlaboratorium fort, folgte 1865 einer Berufung an die Universität Jena und lehrte seit 1870 in Leipzig. Czermak führte neben dem Stirnreflektor die Laryngoskopie in die praktische Medizin ein und legte seine Forschungsergebnisse in der Schrift "Der Kehlkopfspiegel und seine Verwertung für Physiologie und Medizin" (1860) dar; neben seiner bahnbrechenden Anwendung des Kehlkopfspiegels begründete er die Rhinologie als neues Spezialgebiet und stellte Photographie wie Stereoskopie in den Dienst dieser jungen Fächer.

        Clover Nook, Auckland N.Z. Original pencil sketch tipped on to a scrap album sheet, ca. 1860.

      - 12.75 x 8.5 cms. Delicate sketch of a cottage with verandah, 2 stories, a picket fence, and part of a house next door. Gillies Ave, Lot 21 was originally purchased as a crown grant in 1845 by William Swainson, the Attorney - General; sold to John Stokes 1848, and then to Andrew Buchanan in 1857. "Clovernook" was constructed between 1857 - 1859. Charles Stitchbury purchased the property in 1861, and enlarged the home in 1864. The land was subdivided in 1906, creating Clovernook Rd. and was demolished in the 1960's for construction of a viaduct. This sketch appears to be of the original cottage, and appeared in a scrap album on the same sheet as an albumen photo of Fijian Natives & hut, ca. 1860. Paper is watermarked 1836 with the name " J _ _ _EN & SON ", possibly J. Sheen & Son. A charming and carefully executed sketch.

A nicely bound copy, with some occasional foxing to plates as usual. One of the most beautiful iconographies on spiders. 'They have retained their desirability chiefly because of the excellence of their plates. There are nearly 500 coloured illustrations of 304 species of spiders, and no other book approaches this. There can be no surprise that the book has always been regarded as a really great pioneering effort, a foundation on which the whole study of British Spiders has rested.'

        SPEECH OF HON. O.H. BROWNING, DELIVERED AT THE REPUBLICAN MASS-MEETING, SPRINGFIELD, ILL., AUGUST 8TH, 1860.

      Whig and Republican Steam Power Press,, Quincy: 1860 - 16pp, folded, untrimmed and partly uncut, outer two leaves loose. Else Near Fine. Calling himself an "old line Clay Whig," Browning had great influence among his colleagues. Lincoln had picked him as an at- large member of the Illinois delegation to the 1860 Chicago Republican Convention [David Donald, LINCOLN, pages 245-246]. In this campaign speech Browning denounces slavery and demonstrates that the paradigmatic Whig, Henry Clay, would have agreed with the Republican platform. Clay would surely have cast his lot with Lincoln, says Browning. "Mr. Lincoln had just been upon the stand from which Mr. Browning spoke," says a footnote to his Speech. FIRST EDITION. LCP 1744. Not in Monaghan, Sabin, Eberstadt, Decker, Graff, Soliday. [Attributes: First Edition]
