        On the Dynamical Theory of Gases.London: Taylor & Francis, 1867.

      First edition, in original wrappers, of one of Maxwell's seminal papers: the most developed and complete exploration of his theory of gases.<br/><br/> "Ever since his brilliant but flawed paper of 1860 on gas theory, James had been mulling over new ideas on the topic. In 1866 he brought them to fruition in a paper, <i>On the Dynamical Theory of Gases</i>. His earlier paper had given the world its first statistical law of physics-the Maxwell distribution of molecular velocities-and had predicted that the viscosity of a gas was independent of its pressure," but significant problems remained. Although Maxwell's earlier theory of gases predicted that the viscosity of a gas varied with the square root of absolute temperature, his own experimental evidence contradicted his theory. "The fault seemed to lie in James' original assumption that when molecules collided they behaved like billiard balls, in other words that they were perfectly elastic spheres. He now tried the alternative assumption that they did not actually come into contact at all but repelled one another with a force that varied inversely with the nth power of the separation distance... Some fiendishly complicated mathematics followed... [but] he found two ways to simplify the calculations. <br/><br/> "One was to introduce the notion of <i>relaxation time</i>, the time a system takes to return to a state of equilibrium after being disturbed. This is a concept now routinely used throughout physics and engineering... Like so many of Maxwell's innovations, it has become so familiar that one wonders why nobody had thought of it before." The other simplification concerned varying the value of <i>n</i> until he reached simpler relationships that corresponded to experimental results. "Even with the simplifications, the mathematical obstacles were as formidable as those James had faced when tackling Saturn's rings. He overcame them with such mastery that some scholars consider this the most inspiring of all his works. The young Ludwig Boltzmann, already working on his own first great paper, was entranced." Ultimately, Maxwell "was able to work out formulae not only for viscosity but for diffusion, heat conduction and other properties, which agreed with known experimental results. It was a seminal paper. He had not only corrected and extended his earlier work but had greatly strengthened the theory that gases (and, by extension, all forms of matter) were composed of molecules. Most of all, he had set the theory on a firm base, on which he, Boltzmann and others could build." (Basil Mahon, <i>The Man who Changed Everything: The Life of James Clerk Maxwell</i>).<br/><br/> Following Maxwell's paper is the fifth installment of Faraday's famous <i>Experimental Researches in Magnetism and Electricity</i>.. Large 4to (301 x 230 mm), pp. 49-88 in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Vol. 157, part 1, entire issue offered here: uncut and unopned in original light green printed wrappers, light wear to top of psine, otherwise very fine, custom folding case. Rare in this condition. Faraday's paper is pp. 89-107

Uniform matching hard back binding in publisher&#39;s original brick red cloth covers, gilt title, author lettering and volume numbering to the spines, small gilt vignette to the upper panels, top edges gilt. 8vo. 7&#39;&#39; x 5&#39;&#39;. The tissue guarded colour plate collation is as follows: Volume I has 34 colour plates plus monochrome frontispiece and monochrome vignette; Volume II has 29 colour plates including colour vignette plus monochrome frontispiece; Volume III has 35 colour plates including colour vignette plus monochrome frontispiece; Volume IV has 32 colour plates including colour vignette plus monochrome frontispiece. This makes 130 colour plates in total [some of which are eggs] however, this arrangement over the four volumes does not exactly match those plates as listed with plate 18 of volume IV missing. We have seen various sets over the years with anything from 128 up to 132 colour plates. Fraying of the cloth across the tops of the spines, volume I has had a repair to the front hinge at some point in time leaving a ragged edge to the front gutter, without any foxing or toning to the paper or the plates.

        Mitchell's New General Atlas?

      S. Augustus Mitchell Folio, original cloth with leather spine and corners, 47 colored maps. Joints cracked, spine and edges rubbed and worn, wear on corners of back cover is significant with tears, exposing the cardboard, piece missing from spine, signature on front endpapers, preliminaries show a some modest browning, New York map with tears at lower margin, and at the lower end of center fold, some foxing, staining and soiling throughout, but maps are generally bright and clean. Of the 47 maps in this atlas, four are double page, and 22 relate to the U.S. Many of the maps have great color and detail, especially the maps of the United States, Texas, South America and Asia. Despite some soiling and a little staining, these maps are among the most attractive from the Mitchell's series. Signature on the front endpaper, dated 1861, appears to be the signature of Charles Colton. Old note to Colton from C.W. Eddins, bookseller, from a later date is laid in.

        A New Township Map Of The State Of New York

      New York, 1860. No Binding. Near Fine. 24 x 30 inches. Lithograph with original hand color; slight fold wear, mounted on rice, a bright, excellent example. A rare, visually rich map of New York State, featuring a plan of Central Park just after its completion in 1859. Unique in our experience, at least in the realm of maps, the plan of Central Park extends westward to include the Upper West Side, the Hudson River, and the Palisades. The Upper West Side is seen here as a largely agrarian landscape with dwellings few and far between. In the plan of Central Park, the Bow Bridge divides what is today called The Lake into separate Gentlemen&#39;s and Lady&#39;s skating ponds. The map, as its title suggests, is notable for dividing showing the boundaries of the state&#39;s towns and cities and highlighting each in color. This is achieved with admirable clarity. The map has excellent railroad information that includes all of Connecticut. Tables to the right provide the populations of counties in 1860 (hence our dating of the map) and of the various wards of New York City, providing figures for both whites and "colored." To the right of the title is a portrait of De Witt Clinton, the sixth governor of New York State, who was largely responsible for the completion of the Erie Canal, which was being superseded by the many rail lines shown on this map. The map&#39;s elegant border and all around attention to graphic appeal suggests that it was intended as a decorative object for display, which may account for its rarity.

        KINSEI KIJIN-DEN

      18. Very Good. [EHON] Mikuma Katen, artist. KINSEI KIJIN-DEN, 5 vols. Kyoto, Edo & Osaka. n.d. [1860&#39;s?]. String-bound Japanese-style fukuro toji, in textured blue-grey covers with printed paper title labels. 40 single page and 2 double page b+w woodcuts, largely depicting the subject matter of the title: TALES OF ECCENTRICS FROM RECENT YEARS. Originally printed in 1790, this is a deservedly famous and oft-reprinted work in Japan. The KIJIN_DEN catalogues the eccentricities and eccentrics of the late 18th Century - a time of florescence of the "bunjin" literati ideal in Japan. The bunjin created an esthetically pure environment in the midst of the bustle (and corruption) of everyday life. The initial exemplars were those scholars and artists who withdrew from public life in China after the fall of the Ming Dynasty to the alien Manchus in the mid-17th Century. The KIJIN-DEN represents one of the efforts by the Japanese to domesticate a Chinese cultural import and find native representatives of the literati ideal. The KIJIN-DEN is interesting for its exploration of the art world in Japan- for example, there is a domestic scene of the painters Ikeno Taiga and wife Gyokuran, among others. Indeed, there are many women depicted in the KIJIN-DEN. (See JAPANESE WOMEN ARTISTS 1600-1900) Also see Ryerson 416, Mitchell 364, Hillier/Ravicz 22. The condition is very good over all, the printings are late (this edition being some 60-70 years after the original printing by Hayashi Bunkindo). There was a second series done some few years later, but this first series is complete as issued in 5 volumes.

        Incised Clay Cuneiform Tablet: Contract of Sale.

      - Approximate size: 2-3/8" x 1-5/8" x 3/4" (thick), (55mm x 37mm).; a baked, tan-gray clay tablet. Incised with 18 lines of Old Babylonian cuneiform lettering, covering the front and back of the tablet. Left-hand edge/corner of the top of the tablet shows a chip. Scan shows one side, another scan is availble, showing the other. The inscription is a contract for the sale a field, with seven witnesses named on the reverse. A very early example of a contract of sale. This piece is from Larsa in Southern Mesopotamia. Period is circa 1860 B.C. &#147;[T]here is ample proof that there were regular schools and colleges attached to most of the temples in Babylonia [-]&#150;certainly at Borsippa, Nippur and Larsa.[-] [I]n the temples of every great city there was a &#145;house of tablets&#146;, or books&#151;in other words, a library [-]. Not only could books be borrowed from this library, but in the part analogous to a modern public record office all documents relating to business transactions, including conveyancing of land and slave ownership, were filed. Royal decrees and correspondence, lists of taxes and official chronicles, would probably be placed in a special record office of the palace. With education placed upon a broad basis, it is perhaps not surprising that letter-writing and record-making covering all transactions were practiced to a remarkable extent. The law required that every business deal, even down to the smallest transaction, should be in writing and duly signed by the contracting parties and witnesses.&#148; (from Diringer: &#147;The Hand Produced Book&#148;; Hutchinson&#146;s, London, 1953; p. 82. See pp. 79-112 for Chapter III: &#147;Clay Tablet Books&#148; & pp. 53-58, for more on Mesopotamian written tablets & the development of Cuneiform writing). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Neuste Eisenbahn - Kanal - u Post-Karte fur Reisende in den Vereinigten Staaten von Nord Amerika Canada, Texas sowie Californien ... Nach J. Calvin Smith, H. S. Tanner [etc.]

      Nurnberg: [circa 1860]. Folding map, dissected into 21 sections and linen- backed as issued, hand coloured in outline. Five inset maps or plans, including a large inset of the American West. Folds into period cloth covers. 21 1/2 x 28 3/4 inches. Scarce issue of a highly detailed German emigration map showing the routes to the west. The map depicts the United States as far west as Fort Kearny, with substantial portions of Texas, Kansas, Nebraska and Dakota shown in detail. As the cartouche suggests, the cartographic information is derived from J. Calvin Smith and H. S. Tanner. Various issues of the map were produced, with varying insets and detail, from 1853 onwards. This map shows Texas divided into counties dated between 1846 and 1852 (Wharton County is shown, but Orange County is not), West Virginia has not yet been separated from Virginia and much of the transcontinental railroad system is still proposed.

        SPECIAL MESSAGE OF GOVERNOR SAMUEL J. KIRKWOOD, IN REPLY TO A RESOLUTION OF INQUIRY, PASSED BY THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, MARCH 2D, 1860, IN RELATION TO THE REQUISITION OF THE GOV. OF VIRGINIA, FOR ONE BARCLAY COPPIC

      Des Moines. 1860.. 15pp. Original printed wrappers. Minor soiling and wear. Near fine. One of the rarest and most important documents regarding the John Brown Conspiracy. Coppic fled to Iowa after riding with John Brown at Harper&#39;s Ferry on October 16, 1859. One month after his arrival in Iowa, where he was met with sympathy, Coppic was discovered by an agent of Virginia and charged as a fugitive from justice. Governor Kirkwood refused to comply with the demand to turn over Coppic, alleging insufficient evidence, but was forced to surrender him upon the second demand, but Coppic had disappeared. In this message Kirkwood defends his course of action, denies Letcher&#39;s "insinuations of my sympathy with the crimes lately committed in Virginia," and accuses him of trying to increase sectional prejudice and of supporting those who seek "to destroy the Union if they cannot control it."

Wrapper a little worn and with a few marginal tears at edges otherwise an excellent copy. Housed in a half crimson morocco clamshell case."Of the two or three personalities created by Leech, none was more widely known or better loved than Mr. Briggs. Spielman says of him that his creation 'is sufficient to render the year 1849 memorable to the annals of the Land.' It was in this year that he made his first appearance in 'Punch.' Many of his adventures are said to have been founded on Leech's own visits to Sir John Millais whose favorite shooting and fishing grounds are reproduced in a great number of the drawings" (Field)."And yet, with all his modesty and reserve, so great was his talent and appeal that from the moment of his first appearance as an illustrator in 'Bentley's Miscellany', as a cartoonist in 'Punch', and as a caricaturist of the 'Mulready Envelope'.there was not an artist in England whose work was so well known or who was so popular as John Leech" (Field)."Messrs.

        SKETCHES OF THE WASHOE SILVER MINES, WITH A DESCRIPTION OF THE SOIL, CLIMATE AND MINERAL RESOURCES OF THE COUNTRY EAST OF THE SIERRA

      San Francisco: Published by Hutchings & Rosenfield, 1860.. 24pp., printed in double columns. Advertisements on wrappers. Original printed yellow wrappers. Wrappers soiled and worn around the edges, spine mostly perished. Final two numbers in printed date effaced from the titlepage, else clean internally. Very good. The earliest tract on Nevada, issued before the territory was officially established, and a legendary rarity. Henry DeGroot was a journalist with the NEW YORK TRIBUNE when he was sent to report on the California gold discoveries in 1848. A dozen years later he produced the present work, which gives a very valuable description of Nevada before the Comstock boom of 1861. Included are sections on climate, soil, inhabitants, grass, timber, water, minerals, Mono Lake, Carson Cañon, Walker River, Eagle Valley, Pyramid Lake, the Truckee River valley, and more. A final section at the end gives distance tables of several routes from California to Nevada. "DeGroot&#39;s is the first published work on the months-old Virginia City mines of then western Utah Territory, in the land of &#39;Washoe.&#39; This booklet covers especially the natural features and resources of the area east of the Sierra. The author gives more attention to older gold districts in the Mono Lake and Honey Lake regions and the farm valleys of present western Nevada than to the newly-found mines in the titles." Paher mentions that "an extremely important map accompanies this report." That map was actually published separately by Hutchings & Rosenfeld, and an advertisement for the map is found on the inner rear wrapper where it is announced as "just published." The wrappers also contain advertisements for other San Francisco businesses. Not in the Graff, Norris, Holliday, Plath, or Bauer collections, nor in Sabin. The last copy for sale that we are aware of is the Streeter copy, which was bought by Howell for $600 in 1968. Rare and a highly significant Nevada item. HOWES D220, "b." PAHER 461.

        VILLAS ON THE HUDSON. A COLLECTION OF PHOTO- LITHOGRAPHS OF THIRTY-ONE COUNTRY RESIDENCES

      New York: D. Appleton, 1860.. [3] preliminary leaves, thirty-one photo- lithographic plates (most with two tints), twenty-one floor plans. Oblong folio. Original gilt-lettered cloth, rebacked in three-quarter calf. New endsheets. Minute wear to extremities. First two leaves creased, titlepage creased with vertical repair through center, occasional marginal tears. Minute foxing, primarily on architectural plans, as usual. Save for the slightly stained image of H.L. Atherton&#39;s manse, the photo-lithographs remain clean and bright. Very good. In a cloth case, leather label. This book is the first large-scale use of photo-lithography in the United States, a medium which did not come into general use for another two decades. Its views are based on photographs made by A.A. Turner of large homes along the Hudson from upper Manhattan Island to Dobbs Ferry, mainly summer or pleasure homes of wealthy New Yorkers, and often exhibiting extravagant or playful architecture. The villas are remarkably lavish and some show considerable whimsy. Turner took the pictures in 1858 and 1859, and this lavish work appeared on the eve of the Civil War. All of the views have at least one additional color, and most have two (either brown or green, or both) applied by stencil, with the picture inside a gilt printed border. The images have a slightly surreal quality which adds to the appeal of this remarkable book. HITCHCOCK 1275. TRUTHFUL LENS 173. REESE, STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER 62.

This 1st trade edition retains the original half-title reading "The Queen Mother and Rosamond," adds title leaves before the 2 sections, & the Errata are reduced to 3 as indicated by the leaf at the rear. Pickering's edition can be determined by its blue cloth binding, while Moxon's is in green cloth. This is one of the very few copies that were sold before Moxon acquired the remaining sheets in 1865. Printed by Whittingham & Wilkins at the Chiswick Press, London. Binding Very Good (corner tips sl. bumped & worn); contents Very Good (3 short closed tears to half-title, 2 of which are mended w/archival tape).
