Nouvelle experiénces relatives aux générations dites spontanées. + Nouvelles experiences relatives aux générations dites spontanées. + Suite à une précédente communication relatives aux générations dites spontanées.

      Paris, 1860. 4to. 4 papers laid loose in a marbled cover, from "Comptes Rendus des Séances de l'Academie des Sciences" vol. 50: pp. 303-307 and pp. 849-854 - vol. 51: pp. 348-352 and 675-678. Uncut, light marginal browning and a few brownspots.. First edition. These 4 papers mark the downfall of the theory of spontaneous generation, and all of Pasteur's later work in this field can be seen as an extension, elaboration, and defence of the principles and methods set forth here, and it is from these conclusions all modern bacteriology and immunology have developed. Pasteur was awarded the Zecker Price 1861 for these discoveries. - Printing and the Mind of Man No, 336 (b) - Garrison & Morton No. 2474

        Über das Verhältnis zwischen dem Emissionsvermögen und dem Absorptionsvermögen der Körper für Wärme und Licht. (On the relation between the radiating and the absorbing powers of different bodies for light and heat). (+) Über die Frauenhofer'schen Linien. (Aus d. Monatsbericht. d. Berl. Acad. October 1859). (2 Papers).

      Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1860. Contemp. hcalf, raised bands, gilt spine. A few scratches to spine. In "Annalen der Physik und Chemie. Hrsg. von J.C. Poggendorff", Bd. 109. X,660 pp. and 4 folded engraved plates. Kirchhoff's papers: pp. 275-301 and pp. 148-150. Internally clean and fine. Small stamps to verso of titlepage and plates.. First printing of a milestone paper by "The Grandfather of Quantum Theory" in which he formulates the law named after him, "KIRCHHOFF'S LAW", which was the "key to the whole thermodynamics of radiation. In the hands of Planck, Kirchhoff's successor to the Berlin chair, it proved to be the key to the new world of the quanta, well beyond Kirchhoff's conceptual horizon."(DSB, VII, p.382)."Kirchhoff's Law of Thermal Emission was formulated in 1859 (Über das Verhältnis....) - the paper offered. It is at the same time the simplest and least understood law in physics. Kirchhoff's law states that given thermal equilibrium with an enclosure, the radiation inside will be always black, or normal, in a manner which is independent of the nature of the walls, or the objects they contain. This is known as the concept of universality. That is, that radiation within an enclosure can always be described by a universal function dependent only ontemperature and frequency. This universal function was first given us by Max Planck, in 1900. Kirchhoff's law STANDS AT THE HEARTH OF ALL MODERN ASTROPHYSICS. It is the basis for setting the temperature of the stars, for the gaseous model of the Sun, and for believing that we now know the temperature of the entire universe."(Pierre-Marie Robitaille)..The research background for the paper was his unexpected observation that if the intensity of the solar spectrum increased above a certain limit, the dark D lines were made much darker by the interposition of the sodium flame. he instantly felt, that he had got hold of "something fundamental". These observations are described in the second paper offered here "Über die Frauenhofer'schen Linien..." which was published first in 1859 in Monatsschrift der Berliner Academie.The volume contains many other importent papers in physics and chemistry, by C.F. Schönbein, Zöllner, H. Fizeau, Eisenlohr, W. Heine, Knoblauch, K.G. Neumann, W. Siemens etc

        Manuscript Log of the "Typhoon"

      Various places Liverpool Bombay Singapore Manila etc. july 30 1860april 26 1863 Various places [Liverpool, Bombay, Singapore, Manila, etc.], july 30, 1860 - april 26, 1863. (SHIP'S LOG) Folio. Written in ink on rectos and versos of [58] leaves. Contemporary quarter calf, worn and scuffed, spine defective. Binder's ticket of a Liverpool firm on frost pastedown. A few leaves with pieces excised, with some loss. 3pp. later notes in the hands of members of the Salter family of New Hampshire, ca. 1874 . The extreme clipper ship "Typhoon"was built in 1851for the China trade by the firm of Fernald & Pettigrew of Portsmouth, NH. It was first launched in 1851 under the command of Charles H. Salter -- evidently the forbear of Commander James H. Salter, who authored this journal. The "Typhoon" was famous for its speed and power. In a memorable race around the Horn in the summer of 1851, the "Typhoon" defeated the competing clippers, the "Sea Witch", and the "Raven." As the "Typhoon" was sold to a British Company in 1863, this is probably its last journal under an American command. Appropriately, the final entry made by Salter is in Newport Harbor, April 26, 1863

        Die Cultur der Renaissance in Italien.

      Basel, 1860. 8vo. A little later green half cloth with a recent printed paper title-label to spine. Brownspotting to some leaves. Some underlinings and maginal annotations, all in pencil. Near contemporary annotations/description pasted on to verso of dedication-leaf. (4), 576 pp.. The scarce first edition of Burckhardt's main work, the groundbreaking work on the culture of the Renaissance, which helped found the historical study of this previously much overlooked era. " "The most penetrating and subtle treatise on the history of civilization", in Lord Acton's words, "a mere essay", as Burckhardt himself called it, "The Civilization of the Renaissance in Ittaly" has, for more than a century, determined the general conception of thirteenth- to fifteenth-century Italy." (PMM p. 210)This classic of Renaissance historiography is of the greatest importance to the development of the history of the Renaissance and of history of art and culture in general. More specifically, Burckhardt here establishes the fact that the Renaissance came first in developing the human individuality to the highest degree. He places the earliest signs of "the modern European Spirit" in Florence, which was a great contributing factor to the comprehension of this city as representing one of the highlights of European culture.The Swiss historian of art and culture, Jacob Chrisoph Burckhardt (1818-1897), contributed seminally to the historiography of these two fields. He is considered the discoverer of the Renaissance, and with his main work he founded the study of thirteenth- to fifteenth-century Italy and thereby the historical study of the Renaissance, the society of which he dealt with all aspects of. In general, Burckhardt's works all constitute an original historical approach to the study of art, culture, social institutions etc. As a highly respected scholar of Greek civilization, Burckhardt, with his original historiographical approach, was highly admired by Nietzsche, who also attended his lectures. The two kept in contact and corresponded frequently. Like Nietzsche, Burckhardt was a great admirer of Schopenhauer, and he greatly opposed the Hegelian interpretations of history."... as in the case of other great historians such as Gibbon, Ranke, Macaulay, no criticism of details can detract from the powerful spell which Burckhardt's book has exercised upon such widely different writers as Ruskin, Nietzsche and Gobineau, as well as upon innumerable lovers of the most magnificent period of European history."

A few brownspots to the first leaves and to the last leaves of the advertisements. Otherwise clean and fine and uncut.. Second edition (second issue - the first issue only known in a few copies) - of one of the most influential works ever written, introducing THE DARWINIAN REVOLUTION."The philosopher John Passmore (1983) recently pointed out that only one intellectual revolution - the one brought about by Darwin - has been dignified by the suffix -ism. Hence we have Darwinism, but not Newtonianism, Maxwelllism, Planckism, Einsteinism, or Heisenbergism. This exceptional status is justified, for it would be difficult to refute the claim that the Darwinian revolution was the greatest of all intellectual revolutions in the history of mankind. Its importence lies in the fact that Darwin caused the overthrow of some of the basic beliefs of his age. Furthermore, and this is only now fully realized, Darwin established the basis for entirely new approaches in philosophy." (Ernst Mayr in "Towards a New Philosophy of Biology. Cambridge, 1988" p. 162).Of this second edition 3000 copies were printed. "The new edition is only a reprint, yet I have made a few importent corrections."

        Chemische Analyse durch Spectralbeobachtungen. (Erste-) Zweite Abhandlung. (2 Papers).

      Leipzig, Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1860, 1861. 2 uniform contemp. hcalf, raised bands, gilt spine. A few scratches to spine. In "Annalen der Physik und Chemie. Hrsg. von J.C. Poggendorff", Bd. 110 a. Bd. 113. - IX,668 pp. a. 8 folded plates. X,660 a. 8 folded plates. Entire volumes offered. The 2 papers: pp. 161-189 a. pp. 337-381 and plates (one plate in chromolithography, spectra of different elements). Verso of titlepages and verso of plates with small stamps. Internally fine and clean.. First printing of these fundamental papers, constituting the invention of Spectrum Analysis and announcing the discovery of two new elements, Cesium and Rubidium by using the new method of spectroscopy developed by them. This technique, made possible by their invention of the spectroscope is called "One of the most dashing advances of the human mind into the secrets of the composition of matter on earth and in cosmos"(Kedrow in "Spectralanalyse", 1961). The spectral lines proved to be a guide not only to the great world of the outer cosmos, but to the infra-tiny world within the atom. Balmer made the first steps in this direction (the Balmer-lines)."The two investigators advanced, as scientifically established, the law that the bright lines in the spectrum may be taken as a sure sign of the presence of the respective metals. This conclusion was rendered doubtly sure by the discovery in the mineral water of Durkheim, through the spectrum, of two new metals. From the blue and the red lines, by which they were recognized, they were named "Cæsium" and "Rubidium". While spectrum analysis, as a terrestrial science, was due equally to Kirchhoff and Bunsen, its celestial applications belong to Kirchhoff alone."(Cajori in "A History of Physics in its Elementary Branches", pp. 160 ff).In a letter to Henry Roscoe, with whom Bunsen carried out a long importent series of photochemical researches, Bunsen wrote: "At present Kirchhoff and I are engaged in a common work which doesn't let us sleep....Kirchhoff has made a wonderful, entirely unexpected discovery in finding the cause of the dark lines in the solar spectrum, and increasing them artificially in the sun's spectrum, and inproducing them in spectra which does not have lines, and in exactly the same position as the corresponding Frauenhofer lines. Thus a means has been found to determine the composition of the sun and fixed stars with the same accuracy as we determine sulfuric acid, chlorine, etc., with our chemical reagents. Substances on the earth can be determined by this method just as easely as on the sun, so that, for example, I have been able to detect lithium in twenty grams of sea water."
