        Autograph letter signed, probably to Latimer Clark

      1860. Very Good. Hughes, David Edward (1830-1900). A.L.s. to an unidentified recipient, possibly Latimer Clark. Paris, October 1, 1860. 2pp. 206 x 133 mm. Holes punched in upper margin, with tears at holes, remains of mounting present. Provenance: Latimer Clark.Hughes, an inventor and experimental researcher in electricity and magnetism, is best known for his invention of the microphone in 1878. His first successful invention was an improvement of R. E. House's automatic printing telegraph (1846); completed in 1855, Hughes's device was quickly adopted in both America and Europe. In 1860 the French government purchased Hughes's automatic telegraph for use on their lines. The present letter discusses its installation:"I have just returned from Bordeaux where I have been to give the necessary instructions to work my Inst[rument]. from there to Paris (distance 5.75 kilometres) and the line is now working first rate with my Inst. They have not yet commenced transmitting the regular business merely sending old messages for practice. I think they intend commencing tomorrow as they are sufficiently advanced to do it well. . . ."The Insts. we have now are not very good being very badly made but they answer well enough for demonstration. The new Insts. of Mr. Fremont will be finished in about 2 weeks. They will take the place of the old ones. Then I shall be at liberty to bring them to England and they will be at your disposal if you wish it. . . ." Origins of Cyberspace 162

        CHROMOLITHOGRAPH OF A YOUNG BLACK BOY, SEATED ON A BARREL, WARMING HIS HANDS BY A COAL STOVE].

      [Np. ca. ]. 1860 - 17 1/2 x 12 inches. Minor edge wear. Moderate marginal foxing. Very good. Mounted on original stiff card, matted, 23 x 17 1/2 inches. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet. An engaging unattributed chromolithograph showing a young black boy sitting on a small barrel warming his hands in front of an open coal stove. The image is captioned in contemporary pencil in the upper left margin: "Master James Crow." Despite this annotation, this image is in no way denigrating. It is a well- realized, handsomely composed picture; the boy is wearing neat but worn clothes, and looks sideways toward the viewer with an engaging smile. The small coal stove radiates flame from its open mouth, while a small hand bellows lies on the floor nearby. A handsome and interesting image.

        CDV Photo Album - Victorian Royals

      London, 1860. England, circa 1865-1885. Rare collection of 50 carte-de-visite photographs which features a generous number of Victorian era royals including Queen Victoria, Edward VII, and Princess Louise, as well as some famous writers. Mostly albumen prints, the carte de visites are neatly ensconced behind arched window mounts, recto and verso onto 25 thick gilt edged leaves. 8vo. Exquisite leather album binding made by Boston's Roberts Brothers, with deep blind-stamping, tooling to spine, gilt edges, satin endpapers, and two decorated working brass clasps. Volume measures 13 x 16 x 7 cm (WxHxD). Some age-toning, otherwise in Very Good Condition, an admirable collection beautifully preserved in the original period carte-de-visite album. A most uncommon collection of early and sought after carte de visites featuring scarce photographs of royals, a scant few famous English personalities, as well as Victorian citizens most likely related to the collector. Contained in a quality purpose made ephemeral type of album from the period, some individuals seen here include Queen Victoria and her issue, Princess Louise (Duchess of Argyll), Alfred (Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha), Alexandra of Denmark, Albert Edward, Prince of Wales (Edward VII). Further research may prove to authenticate other photographs as those of Princess Beatrice as a young girl, Princess Alice of the United Kingdom, Mary Adelaide (Princess, Duchess of Teck), Grand Duchess Maria Alexandrovna of Russia, Princess Helena Frederica of Waldeck-Pyrmont, or others. Also included is a cdv of Tom Hood (Thomas Hood the Younger 1835-1874), English humorist and playwright, and son of the poet and author Thomas Hood; and at least one of Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton (1808-1877), English feminist, social reformer, author and first woman to petition for a divorce. Nineteenth century photographers whose work is represented here include: André-Adolphe-Eugène Disdéri (1819-1889) famed for his patented carte de visite James T. Wigney, Scarborough and Huddersfield Cramock, Newboro' Street, Scarborough Sarony & Co., Scarborough (An especially artisitc photographer) J. Peers, Manchester James Mudd Manchester [Charles] Outon of Landport Harrison & Son, Newcastle-under-Lyme, Staffordshire Lafosse, Manchester Bentley Buxton & Exchange Arcaile, Manchester [Barrowclough Wright Bentley] Isaac Wilde, Blackpool W.

Hawkins, Brighton School of Photography T. Higgins, Shipstone J. Emery, Hanley I. Jackson, Rochdale Mr. & Mrs. S. G. Payne, Aylesbury & Thame I. Hargreaves, Barrow-in-Furness I. P. Baker & Son, Luton H. Grecson, Luton Edmund G. Ganty, Dublin, Ireland The carte de visite (CDV, carte-de-visite) was a type of small photograph which was invented by Louis Dodero and patented in 1854 in Paris by photographer André Adolphe Eugène Disdéri. It was usually made of a thin albumen print photograph mounted on a thicker calling card, the image size being 54.0 mm × 89 mm, and the card being 64 mm × 100 mm. The Carte de Visite gained widespread popularity when in 1859 Disdéri published a photograph of Emperor Napoleon III in this format. Subsequently photographic studios began to offer the cartes-de-visite of famous royals, politicians, actresses, and the like, and so began some spectacular nineteenth century photographic collections. This also created a need for a unique type of album for presentation and for preservation of these special private collections. Purpose made in limited quantities, the availability of these albums was usually announced in local newspapers. Carte-de-visite albums were bound in fine quality bindings, joining together heavy cardstock leaves featuring neatly rimmed window mounts, behind which the carte-de-visite would be ensconced to showcase the portrait image. Photographs were held securely in place while the arrangement remained convenient for changes as the collection expanded or changed. Established by Austin J. Roberts, John F. Roberts, and Lewis A. Roberts, the Roberts Brothers (1857-1898) were active publishers and bookbinders in Boston, Massachusetts, from the early 1860s until 1898. In 1862 they began producing photograph albums. They gained fame in 1868 with the publication of Louisa May Alcott's "Little Women." The Trinitiy College Watkinson Library in Hartford, Connecticut, holds a Robert Brothers collection of their carte de visite albums. . Very Good.

VIII (including half, 520, (6) pp + 1 plate.. The very scarce first German edition of Darwin's masterpiece, one of the most important books ever printed. The "Origin of Species" (1859) started the greatest of all intellectual revolutions in the history of Mankind."Its [Origin of Species] greatest impact on German biological practice lay in the introduction of historical modes of explanation for the observable phenomena of living nature. The historical approach to nature was rejected, not only by the opponents of evolution, but also by the idealist evolutionist. Whether they favored a teleological or a reductionist biology, the idealists could not see the point of a theory that emphasized the irregularities and exceptions in the organic world. In the timeless real of idealist thinking, unchanging laws worked out an inevitable destiny. But Darwin taught his followers to look at living beings one by one. Thus prompted, they recognized, as if for the first time, the surprising fact of anomaly and the wisdom of an open-ended theory." (Glick, The Comparative Reception of Darwinism). "Darwin was not happy about the first German translation. It was done from the second English edition by H.G. Bronn, who had, at Darwin's suggestion. added an appendix of the difficulties which occurred to him; but he had also excised bits of which he did not approve. This edition also contains the historical sketch in its shorter and earlier form. The text was tactfully revised by J.V. Carus who remained the most faithful and punctual of all Darwin's translators." (Freeman).Freeman No 672 - Freeman does not mention the lithographed plate

        Spinale Kinderlähmung. Monographie.

      . 2., umgearb. u. verm. Aufl., - Stuttgart, J.G. Cotta, 1860, VIII, 204 pp., 14 getönten lithogr. Taf., Pappband der Zeit.. Die erste Monographie über dieses Krankheitsbild von Jakob von Heine (1800-1879). - "Erst in dieser stark vermehrten zweiten Auflage, unter Bekanntgabe von vielen neuen Methoden und Erkenntnissen erhielt dieses klassische Werk den Titel "Spinale Kinderlähmung", da er den Sitz der Krankheit im Rückenmark annahm, wenn er sich auch noch nicht auf Sektionsergebnisse stützen konnte. Er teilte das Leiden ein in das akute (primäre) und das chronische (sekundäre) Stadium und unterschied sehr wohl die cerebrale (spastische) Hemiplegie von der spinalen Lähmung, die er "Paralysis infantilis spinalis" nannte. Ferner führte er sehr genaue Temperaturmessungen an den verschiedenen Körpergegenden durch und stellte dabei Unterschiede der Hautemperatur zwischen der gesunden und gelähmten Seite fest; auch das Zurückbleiben im Wachstum entging ihm nicht. Ebenso wies er schon auf das epidemische Auftreten hin, ferner auf die Kontrakturen und die anderen Fehlstellungen...." - "..namentlich die zweite aus dem Jahre 1860, deren reicher Inhalt nur in Stichworten angedeutet werden konnte, sind als wahre klassische Werke zu bezeichnen; nach ihrer Lektüre wird man es voll und ganz verstehen (...) das die Bezeichnung einer der schlimmsten Plagen, welche Kinder und Erwachsene befallen kann, mit dem Namen des deutschen Orthopäden Jacob von Heine (1800-1879) als 'Heine-Medinische Krankheit' verbunden bleiben wird. - Ferner war Jakob Heine wahrscheinlich der erste in Deutschland welcher die orthopädische Gymnastik in seinem Institut bei Cannstatt einführte." - - "In 1940 Heine (1799-1879) gave the first description of acute anterior polyomelitus in a slender monograph of 78 pages. "Twenty years later (1860) in a much enlarged edition Heine gathered again his rich experiences, announcing many new methods and observations. He called his new monograph "Spinale Kinderlähmung" as he assumed the seat of the disease to be in the spinal cord --- These tow monographs by Heine, especially the second of 1860 ... must be considered true classics ... "Valentin - After a brief account of the acute or primary stage comes a detailed description of the second or paralytic stage with numerous clinical histories of the different forms of paralysis, followed by sections on etiology and pathologic anatomy, differential diagnosis, prognosis and treatment, especially by orthopaedics means. The 29 lithographic figures illustrate deformities and apparatus. The book contains numerous references to the literature. (Fischbein et al) - - Valentin, Gesch. d.

        In Congress, July 4th, 1776 : the Unanimous Declaration of the thirteen United States of America

      Chicago and New York: Horace Thayer and Rufus Blanchard, 1860. Very Good. 29 1/4 x 43 inches (broadside dimensions). Lithographed broadside attached to wooden rods ready for hanging. Some loss to borders and minor paper loss throughout, professionally conserved by Northeast Document Conservation Center (NEDCC) removing old cloth and varnish, and conserving backed with toned Japanese tissue and with edging re-attached (a full conservation report including before and after photographs will be provided to the new owner.) The earliest date on the lithograph is 1818 but the story of it's publication is much more interesting. Where we'd normally expect the copyright statement we find instead: "Copied from the Declaration of Independence in the Department of State and Published by Benjamin Owen Tyler, Professor of Penmanship, City of Washington, 1818" and then "The publisher designed and executed the ornamental writing, and has been particular to copy the Facsimiles Exact, and has also observed the same punctuation, and copied every Capital as in the original." and then on the far right hand : "Engraved by Peter Maverick, Newark, N. J." Lower left shows "Printed by Lang & Laing, 117 Fulton St. N.Y." In the center of the green ornamental border on bottom is "Published by Horace Thayer, No 18 Beekman St. New York and Rufus Blanchard, Chicago Illinois" Finally in very small type just under the vignette "First Blow of Liberty" is a caption (the real copyright notice): "Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1860 by H. Thayer in the Clerks office ... " An adaptation of Tyler's famous 1818 broadside, with Trumbull's painting inserted below "AMERICA" at the top of the lithograph, and a key for Trumbulls work at the bottom. Additionally, there is a new vignette "The first blow for Liberty" inserted above the key, in the bottom center of the facsimile signature field. Additionally, the whole is surrounded by a green border of grape vines and clusters. This presentation "amped up" the early Tyler 1818 broadside, providing it with a more visual appeal and additional marketing points. Bidwell's "American History in Image and Text" provides an interesting view into the competition between purveyors of various Declarations, something which happened from the very beginning with competing entrepeneurs trying to create (and later capitalize) on the public's love of the most visual representation they had of their new country. The fact that this highly decorative approach survived (and indeed flourished) in various forms as late as 1860 is a testament to the level of interest, and the creativity of the hucksters bent on out-performing their fellow creators. Bidwell contains has a select list of Declarations at the end, and in a note to #2 (The Tyler, page 287) he indicates he has seen a copy very similar to the one we offer here, but with a slightly different imprint (Printed by Lang & Cooper rather than Lang & Laing as here, and Thayer at No 36 Beekman rather than No 18 Beekman as here). Scarce, with six locations found in OCLC/Worldcat - mass historical, peabody essex, john carter brown, colonial williamsburg, library of virginia and the university virginia (Albert H. Small deposit).
