        Histoire de France. In seventeen volumes

      nbsp;Paris - Furne, 1860 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce complete set of Martin's fascinating and comprehensivehistory of France, which paved the way for later historians. Fourth Edition. With a portrait frontispiece of the author to volume I. Sixteen volumes plus one index volume, complete. Henri Martin (February 20, 1810 - December 14, 1883) was a French historian celebrated in his own day. Having first written a few novels, he later devoted his life to the study of the history of France and wrote an account of it, entitled Histoire de France, a magnificent work in 19 volumes. He brought the history down to 1789, and received from the Institut de France 20,000 francs as a prize in 1869. The Avenue Henri-Martin in Paris is named after him. Becoming associated with Paul Lacroix (Le Bibliophile Jacob), he planned with him a history of France to consist of excerpts from the chief chroniclers and historians, with original matter filling up gaps in the continuity. In the first volume, which appeared in 1833, Histoire de France depuis les temps les plus reculs jusqu'en juillet 1830 the compiler promised to seek always the dramatic and picturesque side of history, the one that interests the greatest number; its success encouraged Martin to make the work his own, and his Histoire de France, in fifteen volumes (18331836) which spans the space from earliest times to the French Revolution, was the result. This magnum opus, rewritten and further elaborated during the following 18 years of research (4th ed. , 16 vols. and index, 18611865) gained for the author in 1856 the first prize of the Academy, and in 1869 the grand biennial prize of 20,000 francs. A popular abridgement in seven volumes, L'Histoire de France Populaire, was published in 1867. This, together with the continuation, Histoire de France depuis 1789 jusqu' nos jours (6 vols. 1878-1883), gives a complete history of France, and superseded Sismondi's Histoire des Francais. Condition: In half morocco bindings with marbled boards. Externally excellent, just a little shelfwear,faded spinesand one or two marks. Internally, firmly bound. Very bright, aside from several browned titles. Intermittently clean aside from scattered spotting. Regrettably, the fifty-one engraved plates are missing. Overall: VERY GOOD..

        The War in Nicaragua

      Mobile, AL: S. H. Goetzel & Co.. Near Fine. 1860. First Edition. Hardcover. An attractive First Edition in Near Fine condition with light foxing to edges and title page. Illustrated. Frontis. Folding map at rear: "Colton's Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras, San Salvador and Costa Rica." Bound in twentieth century 3/4 morocco; William Walker, a US lawyer, journalist and adventurer, organized several private military expeditions into Latin America where he attempted to set up English-speaking colonies under his personal control, an enterprise known as "filibustering." Walker established "republics" in Baja California and Sonora, Mexico, in 1853 and 1854 respectively, and declared himself president of the same, but in each case, his forces were quickly overthrown and he was quickly deposed. In 1856, Walker led a similar ill-fated expedition to Honduras. Again, Walker's regime was quickly toppled, but this time Walker was captured and sentenced to death. Walker was executed in Nicaragua in 1860, the same year that his book The War in Nicaragua was published. A rare and interesting piece of American history .

        THE MIND OF SHAKESPEARE AS EXHIBITED IN HIS WORKS

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1860. FIRST EDITION. One of Fewer than 150 Known Fore-Edge PaintingsBy Miss Currie, Famed for her Cosway-Style Portraits 168 x 102 mm (6 5/8 x 4"). xxiii, [i], 321, [1] pp. Very attractive early 20th century maroon straight-grain morocco, gilt, by Riviere & Son (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), covers with floral gilt frame flanked by triple fillets, center panel with blind tooled floral border, raised bands, spine gilt in compartments with central pantera within octagonal frame, densely gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. WITH A FINELY EXECUTED FORE-EDGE PAINTING BY MISS C. B. CURRIE OF ANNE HATHAWAY'S COTTAGE. With a bound-in calligraphic leaf, stating that this is No. 25 of the books with fore-edge paintings done by Miss Currie, the leaf signed at the bottom by her. Corners a bit rubbed, a couple of trivial nicks in the painting (which is not richly colored), otherwise QUITE A FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh, the binding especially lustrous and without any significant wear. This selection of excerpts from Shakespeare's works purports to show us the poet's mind on hundreds of topics including anger, earthquakes, house-building, love, power, supererogation, and wives. Editor Aaron Augustus Morgan has selected passages from plays to illustrate Shakespeare's views on the subject in question. Whether these truly reveal the Bard's feelings on the matter or merely express the views required of the character quoted, this little work does provide us with a very useful concordance of Shakespeare quotes on a wide variety of topics. Our artist here, Miss C. B. Currie, is best known for her role in producing so-called "Cosway bindings," which featured miniatures painted by her on ivory. Currie collaborated with Riviere on most of the Cosway bindings, which numbered about 1,000 by the time she died in 1940. Currie's fore-edge paintings, by contrast, were far less numerous. In all, our painter produced just 131 known specimens. Called by Weber "a talented artist" whose paintings are "distinguished in more ways than one," Currie is the only fore-edge artist of any importance working before the present day whose paintings are signed and numbered. She particularly enjoyed decorating older books, like this one, and although the subjects of her paintings were rarely relevant to the contents of the books they adorn, that is not the case here. Her delicately rendered scene portrays the thatched Tudor cottage of Shakespeare's wife, Anne Hathaway, amid a tranquil landscape of trees. The painting is skillfully designed, with the two-story timbered house dominating the landscape with its simplicity and charm in a pastoral setting. The colors are soft pastel blues, greens, and grays, with small accents of yellow. The elegant binding by Riviere provides the perfect covering for this most desirable package.

        Plan de Paris

      Paris, Imprimerie Nationale, [no date, but ca 1860]. Double folio. 21 engraved sheets. Late 19th century half calf over marbled boards.* The fine bird's eye view over Paris and faubourgs (suburbs) anno 1734-1739 and including all individual buildings, from the Louvre to the most humble dwelling, as well as walls, mills, gardens, pastures, roads, alleys, trees, etc., etc, all on a scale of 1/400. Comparison with modern maps show that much has changed, especially after the works of Hausmann, but much has remained the same too. Each sheet measures 98 by 71 cm, each image nearly 80 x 50 cm, and in total they produce a printed map of roughly 2.5 by 3.2 meters. One additional engraved plate shows the whole area figured and serves as index to the other 20 more detailed maps. This 21st map is often lacking, but present here. This is a later printing from the original copper plates on thick paper, however with strong, even impressions, and on quality paper. It is not the 1900 Taride issue. Boards somewhat rubbed, a few margins a bit age-toned, otherwise a nice copy.

        Barn Owl [Barn Owl] [Pl. 34]

      New York: [John Woodhouse Audubon], 1860. Chromolithograph by Julius Bien. 38 1/4 x 26 1/4 inches. Framed. A highly dramatic composition in which Audubon shows his mastery of images that capture the moment. A barn owl has returned at day-break with a chipmunk grasped in its talons, it alights on a branch at which point its mate approaches demanding a share of the spoils of the hunt. 'This species is altogether nocturnal... and when disturbed during the day, flies in an irregular manner, as if at a loss how to look for a place of refuge... the flight of the Barn Owl is light, regular, and much protracted. It passes through the air at an elevation of thirty or forty feet, in perfect silence, and pounces on its prey like a Hawk, often waiting for a fair opportunity from the branch of a tree, on which it alights for the purpose... This species is never found in the depth of the forests, but confines itself to the borders of the woods around large savannas or old abandoned fields... where its food... is found in abundance... I am not aware that it ever emits any cry or note, as other owls are wont to do; but it produces a hollow hissing sound, continued for minutes at a time... Its hearing is extremely acute, and as it marks your approach... it instantly swells out its plumage, extends its wings and tail, hisses, and clacks its mandibles with force and rapidity.' (Audubon, Birds of America, New York & Philadelphia: 1840- 1844, vol.I, p.128). 'This long-legged...bird is the owl of Gray's Elegy in a Country Churchyard and other English literary works. It is the spook that haunts old barns, belfries, great hollow trees and caves... [Audubon proposed that the American owl was a distinct species from the barn owl of Europe.] This judgement has been overruled and today American and European birds are considered conspectic. Indeed, few species are more cosmopolitan. The barn owl is nearly worldwide in tropical and temperate regions; in the Americas it ranges from southern Canada to Tierra del Fuego, avoiding the higher altitudes' (R.T. & V.M.Peterson Audubon's Birds of America, 1981, no.234).

        Preparatory drawing for Plate VII: Salmo Salar. Adult Male in Breeding State . River Annan in December, Reduced One Third of British Salmonidae

      Sir William Jardine, the 7th Baronet of Jardine Hall near Lockerbie, Scotland, was the leading authority on salmon and trout in the British Isles. An excellent sportsman, his preeminent knowledge of the species was intimate and personal, and his expertise in the field was so noted that in 1860 he was appointed to the Royal Commission on the Salmon Fisheries of England and Wales. Jardine?s estates were located in the fertile fishing areas near the rivers Annan and Tweed, placing him in a perfect position geographically to explore his fascination with salmon and trout. His independent research, and artistic inclinations, culminated in the finest and most comprehensive monograph on these fish ever produced in the British Isles, and perhaps in the world, British Salmonidae. The magnificent, large-scale plates of the British Salmonidae included four of the salmon at various stages of its development, four of the sea-trout, one of the ferox, two of the brown trout, and one of the vendace. No artist better captured the sport of salmon and trout fishing, nor the appearance of the species themselves. For this reason, since the first appearance of Jardine?s work 150 years ago, it has fascinated biologists, fishermen, and art collectors alike. Jardine?s printed series is exceedingly rare, having been offered at auction only twice in the past twenty years. This image, measuring 28.75" x 37", framed, was one of the original drawings and watercolors that were generated in preparation for the publication, done by Jardine himself. In the artist?s stunning original watercolor and drawing, Preparatory drawing for Plate VII: Salmo Salar. one can visualize the unparalleled excellence, meticulous attention to detail and the esthetic sensibility that characterized his work.

        THE MILL ON THE FLOSS

      1860. hardcover. <center><b>a handsome copy of a George Eliot three-decker, in original cloth</b></center> Eliot, George [pseudonym of Marian Evans]. THE MILL ON THE FLOSS. In Three Volumes. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1860. 16 pp Vol III undated ads. Original blind-stamped cinnamon-brown cloth. 3 vols. <p>First Edition. This is the sad tale of Maggie Tulliver, from the Dorlcote Mill on the Floss River -- a novel noteworthy more for its accurate depiction of rural characters than for its rather drastic solution to an intricate plot. The novel also helped to break new ground in what was "acceptable" fare for reading: on a boating trip Maggie is "innocently but irremediably compromised" by her cousin&#39;s fianc&eacute; -- a fate to be shared by Thomas Hardy&#39;s TESS over thirty years later. </p> <p>This copy does <i>not</i> have the preliminary ad leaf in Vol I; according to Carter this is the first state, as the leaf was inserted in later copies to be issued. The volumes are in Carter&#39;s binding &#39;B&#39;, with the Edmonds & Remnants binder&#39;s ticket (the &#39;A&#39; binding, identical except for the spine gilt, typically was by "Burn & Co."); Carter "hypothesizes" that &#39;B&#39; might have followed &#39;A&#39;, but leaves it open to question. Also, this copy&#39;s Vol III ads cite the "Seventh Edition" of ADAM BEDE, while some copies have ads citing the "Eighth Edition."</p> <p>This is a near-fine set, bright and attractive, with scarcely any external wear or soil (the slightest of wear at the foot of two spines, one small rub in the centerof one spine). The inner hinges (endpapers) are expertly and almost-invisibly strengthened with the addition of matching yellow-coated paper in the gutters; the endpapers themselves are the originals. The volumes are tight, therwe is no foxing on the leaves, and the gilt on the spines remains unusually bright. The first edition of THE MILL ON THE FLOSS is not all that scarce, but it is becoming quite difficult to obtain in this condition.

        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life

      London: John Murray, 1860 Second edition, second issue (there are only a few known copies of the first issue with the title page dated 1859), with the 1860 date and "Fifth Thousand" on title page. Corrections have been made to "Speceies" on p. 20, and "Linnean" is spelled correctly on the title page. One of only 3,000 copies printed in the second edition, on January 7th 1860, after the first edition of 1,250 copies was sold on the day of publication, November 24th 1859. The second and subsequent editions also sold out very quickly. Octavo in twelves. ix, [1, "Instructions to Binder"], 502 pages. Bound without the half-title page. Folding lithographed diagram by William West, indicating Darwin&#39;s views of possible sequences of evolution, facing p. 117. Modern three-quarter green crushed morocco over green cloth, gilt decorative rules to covers, spine in six compartments with five raised bands and decorated and lettered in gilt. Paper slightly browned with light foxing on title and preliminary and terminal leaves, occasional light foxing and marginal soiling to sheets. A few marginal pencil marks. Overall, an excellent copy, in a handsome and appropriate binding. One of the most influential scientific works of the nineteenth century, On the Origin of Species was (and still is) one of the most controversial. In it, "Darwin not only drew an entirely new picture of the workings of organic nature; he revolutionized our methods of thinking and our outlook on the natural order of things. The recognition that constant change is the order of the universe had been finally established and a vast step forward in the uniformity of nature had been taken" (Printing and the Mind of Man). Dibner 199 ("the most important single work in science"). Freeman 373 ("the most important biological book ever written"). Garrison and Morton 220. Grolier, 100 English, 96. Grolier/Horblit 23b ("the most influential scientific work of the nineteenth century"). Heirs of Hippocrates 1724. Printing and the Mind of Man 344b [describing the first edition of 1859].

        JOURNAL OF RESEARCHES INTO THE NATURAL HISTORY AND GEOLOGY OF THE COUNTRIES VISITED DURING THE VOYAGE OF H.M.S. BEAGLE ROUND THE WORLD under the command of Capt. Fitz Roy, R.N

      London, John Murray, 1860.. Second edition, tenth thousand, 1860. 8vo, approximately 195 x 115 mm, 7¾ x 4½ inches, a few wood engraved illustrations and diagrams in the text, pages xv, 519 including index, plus 32 page catalogue with adverts dated April 1867, bound in the original publisher's zigzag pattern green cloth, blind stamped decoration to covers, gilt decoration, gilt rules and gilt lettering to spine, original light brown endpapers. Tiny crease at tail of spine, gilt decoration just slightly rubbed in a couple of places, a touch of rubbing to corners, tiny bump to lower corner of lower cover, inner paper hinges not cracked, neat inscription to front pastedown, title page faintly browned, slight faint foxing to Contents table which is printed on different paper from the rest of the book, text pages bright and clean throughout. A very good plus copy. This is Darwin's first published book and is the most often read and stands second only to The Origin of Species as the most often printed. Referred to universally today as the Voyage of the Beagle, it is an important travel book in its own right and its relation to the background of Darwin's evolutionary ideas has often been stressed. The tenth thousand which this is provides the definitive text and sees the first appearance of the Postscript dated February 1st 1860 on page vii in which Darwin takes the opportunity to correct some errors. This is the first time it was published in the green cloth binding in the same style as the first three John Murray editions of On the Origin of Species. See Freeman, The Works of Charles Darwin, pages 31-36 and No. 20. Freeman states that inserted advertisements in our edition may be as late as September 1868. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING.

A collectable and scarce early edition of The Works of Charles Dickens. Please note: This is heavy set(approx 22 Kg).Books sizes: 7.9 x 4.9 inches. The books are as follows: The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club ( 2 volumes, no date given but probably 1867), Nicholas Nickleby(2 volumes, dated 1869), Martin Chuzzlewit(2 volumes, dated 1969), Old Curiosity Shop & Reprinted Pieces(2 volumes), Barnaby Rudge(2 volumes including Hard Times), Sketches by Boz,Oliver Twist(dated 1868), David Copperfield(2 volumes,dated 1870), Pictures from Italy, Bleak House( 2 volumes,dated 1867), Little Dorrit( 2 volumes, dated 1862 & 1867), Christmas Books(dated 1868), Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations( dated 1866), Our Mutual Friend(2 volumes, dated 1869), Dombey and Son(2 volumes, dated 1868).The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club includes Charles Dicken&#39;s preface("in his preface to the 1867 edition, Dickens strenuously denied any specific input, writing that "Mr Seymour never originated or suggested an incident, a phrase, or a word, to be found in the book."). Also, on the second page of the The Posthumous Papers of the Pickwick Club volume I, it is printed: The Best Edition of my Books Is, Of Right, Inscribed to my Dear Friend John Forster, Biographer of Oliver Goldsmith. Many Patient Hours he has Devoted to the Correction of the Proof Sheets of the Original Editions; And in Affectionate Acknowledgement of His Councel, Sympathy, And Faithful Friendship During My Whole Literary Life. This is another paragraph Later Editions: Upon completion of serialization the works were issued as complete novels in one to three volumes with original, and in some instances, additional illustrations. Starting in 1847 the older novels were reissued in what was called the Cheap Edition, these were published in weekly and monthly parts, and then as complete novels. Eventually all of Dickens&#39; novels were reissued in the Cheap Edition. The concept of the Cheap Edition was similar to today&#39;s practice of reissuing hardback novels as more affordable paperbacks. Other editions published during Dickens lifetime include the Library Edition: a high quality set published without illustrations in 1858/59. This set was reissued between 1861 and 1874 with illustrations and was called the Illustrated Library Edition. In 1867 the Charles Dickens Edition was released. This edition featured new prefaces, written by Dickens, who also made minor corrections to the text. Chapman and Hall produced the Peoples Edition in 1865-1867, these were inexpensive monthly installments of the novels aimed at travelers in the very popular bookstalls popping up in railway stations all over Britain. Dickens&#39; works were also published in America, sometimes simultaneously with the British edition and often with little or no compensation to the author or his publishers due to the lack of an international copyright law.

      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

Mixed edition, volume I first English edition and volumes II and III second English editions. viii, 316; (2), 360; (2), 368 pp. Attractively bound in recent mottled green half morocco over plain green cloth boards by Bayntun, spines with raised bands, gilt lettered to two panel, gilt decorated to others, top edges gilt. Slight fading to cloth at top edge of lower board of the first volume, a very good set. Cf. Parrish and Miller, pp. 39 & 40, referring to the publisher's circular stating that the first edition appeared in mid to late August 1860. The second edition volumes present here were evidently issued soon after, bearing the same year of publication as the first edition. The 16 pp. publisher's catalogue, which they call for at the end of the first edition of the third volume, is not present here: either never included or not bound in as the case may be.
