      Oldenburg, 12. II. 1860. - [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Umfang- und inhaltsreicher Brief. - „[.] Stephan von Österreich gehörte zu den berühmtesten Mineralsammlern des österreich-ungarischen Reiches, dessen Interesse an den Mineralen bereits mit fünf Jahren erwachte. Nach seiner politischen Ausbildung am Königshof von Wien unternahm er ausgedehnte Erkundungstouren durch das Reich und nutzte während dieser Zeit jede Gelegenheit, berühmte Mineralmuseen und bekannte Mineralfundorte zu besuchen, um seine Sammlung durch eigene Funde oder Käufe zu erweitern. 1845 ehrte der bekannte Mineraloge Wilhelm Ritter von Haidinger seine Bemühungen um die Mineralogie mit der Benennung eines wichtigen Silberminerals und -erzes nach ihm als Stephanit. Die mineralogische Sammlung Stephans von Österreich enthielt bei seinem Tod 1867 rund 20.000 Proben und wurde auf den für damalige Verhältnisse enormen Wert von 300.000 Mark geschätzt. Nach Stephans Tod ging die Mineralsammlung auf das Haus Oldenburg über und wurde bis zu deren Verkauf 1888 an den Unternehmer Carl Rumpff weiter ausgebaut. Nach dessen Tod 1889 wurde die Sammlung schließlich an das Museum für Naturkunde in Berlin übergeben" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - ge Gewicht in Gramm: 350 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Lithographed Membership Certificate for the Socialistischer Turner-Bund, ca.1850's

      [Cincinnati?]: Issued without imprint, [N.d. but before 1860]. Early membership certificate for the North American Socialistischer Turner-Bund, a German Socialist Athletic society formed by exiles from the Revolution of 1848. The Bund, established in 1850 in Cincinnati (with nearly simultaneous chapters in other centers of German immigration, including Philadelphia, New York, Milwaukee and Chicago), is generally considered the first organized Socialist organization in America. The organization disintegrated during the Civil War, but was re-established in the 1870's but with a much-reduced emphasis upon political affairs -- in fact, after about 1870, the descriptor "Socialistischer" was dropped from the organization's name. Tinted lithograph broadside, ca. 12" x 9", printed recto-only on thin paper. Text in one column within elaborate pictorial borders; blank portions for completion by hand (unused). Old folds; neat tape repairs verso; light soiling; Good.

        Three legal documents reporting the sale of a female slave and her child

      Taylor County, Kentucky, 1860. Unbound. Very good. Three one-page Taylor County, Kentucy documents regarding the sale of two slaves, Ann and her son John, as part of an inheritance lawsuit following the death of their owner, James F. Campbell of Taylor County, Kentucky. All three documents are in nice shape. After James F. Campbell, a farmer in Taylor County, Kentucky, died in 1854, his wife, Melinda, and their two children moved in with her father Rezin H. Davis, also of Taylor County. Davis was appointed as guardian of James and Melinda's son, Alfred T. Campbell. Alfred T.'s other grandfather, Alfred Hazelwood, was appointed as the administrator of James F.'s estate. There was friction between the two families regarding disposition of the estate, and Davis won a judgement on behalf of Alfred T. against the estate administered by Hazelwood, and the Circuit Court directed two of the slaves belonging to the estate, Ann and her son James, be sold and that the proceeds go to Davis on behalf of Alfred T. Two of the documents, signed by D. J. Hotchkiss, are promissary notes addressed to George W. Montague, a commissioner of the court. The first, dated 14 November 1859, promises to pay "the sum of Seven Hundred & Eighty Dollars - with interest from this date, being the purchase money for a Negro woman named Ann & her Child named John." Apparently the court found the price paid to be insufficient and directed that Ann and John be sold at auction. In the second document, dated 2 April 1860, Hotchkiss promises to pay Montague "the sum of Nine Hundred * Sixty One dollars with interest therein from this date being the purchase money for a Negro woman named Ann & child John." The third document is an official court document, signed by Montague, reporting that "he did . . . expose to sale to the highest bidder . . . said Slaves Ann & John and D. J. Hotchkiss being the highest bidder for said slaves Ann & John became the purchaser . . . at the sum of Nine hundred and Sixt one Dollars." A telling group of documents that drives home the fact slaves were no more than property to be bought and sold like any other commodity in order to raise money or settle debts.

        Lights and Shadows, a Yule Tide Rhyme

      Ipswich: Cowell's Anastatic Press, 1860. Quarto. (8)ff., final leaf blank. Lithographed throughout, hand-colored in red, green, and blue and heightened with gold. Photographic reproduction of a madonna and child pasted to the title page as part of the decorative border.

The title page identifies the author not by name, but with the image of a robin. A production of Cowell's Anastatic Press in Ipswich, a printing and stationary business led by Samuel Harrison Cowell. Cowell took out a license on the anastatic process in 1848, and for a time it was the only anastatic press in the country. Although not internally dated, this book was likely produced during the 1850s and 1860s. To the inside front cover is the bookplate of Edward J. Law, a leading collector and scholar of anastatic lithography. Bound in green wrappers, decorated with a printed or lithographed reproduction of the title page, heightened in gold. Cover rubbed with occasional marking, with wear to extremities. Protected by a modern folio. No copies in OCLC or COPAC.

        Elemente der Psychophysik. 2 Bde.

      Leipzig, Verlag von Breitkopf und Härtel, 1860, 8, XIV, 336, XII, 572 pp., 2 Halbleinenband der Zeit, mit Rückenvergoldung und Rückenschild St.a.Tit. frisches Exemplar. First Edition. Gustav Theodor Fechner (1801-1887) "founded the science of psychophysics, which applies the laws of mathematical physics to the physiology of sensation. In his Elemente der Psychophysik, Fechner placed the methodology of this new science on a sound footing by developing three of its basic methods: the method of limits (just noticeable differences) the method of constant stimuli and the method of average error. 'His greatest contribution was his creation of a scale of sensation, a scale that measured sensation as something different from the stimulus so that the relation of the magnitude of the stimulus to the magnitude of the consequent sensation could be determined. That determination came to be known as Fechner's law..., the rule that the magnitude of the sensation is proportional to the logarithm of its stimulus [S = C log R]. Theretofore there had been no strictly objective measurement, and the new scientific psychology, just ready to be founded, hailed this achievement as its warrant and safe-conduct" Herrnstein & Boring, Sourcebook in the History of Psychology, p. 67 "In effect, a major portion of Elemente is a handbook on experimental design, the most comprehensive treatment of that topic before R. A. Fisher's 1935 Design of Experiments" (Stigler, History of Statistics, p. 244 pp. 242-254. Garrison-Morton 4972 Norman 771

B. Dutron. Planches et texte inèdits. Chez l?Auteur. Impressions lithochromiques par Hangard Maugé. Typographie par Simon Raçon. Paris. 1860. [1863] In fólio de 30x23 cm. Com 19, 194, [2] pags. Encadernação da época inteira de chagrin vermelho com nervos, finos ferros a ouro na lombada, seixas e as pastas com filtes duplos e ferros rendilhados decorativos tendo ao centro em ambas as pastas o super-libris com o brasão armoriado do Papa Pio IX. (1846-1878). Corte das folhas dourado. Ilustrada por 21 cromolitografias numeradas, extratexto, a cores e ouro ao gosto dos livros de horas iluminados reproduzindo os quadros medievais de autor anónimo existentes na Igreja de Santa Úrsula em Colónia. Inclui também 1 fronstispício em cromolitografia, o fac-simile do breve papal, e uma reprodução a duas cores de uma inscrição latina do V ou VI Século. Tudo litografado por F. Kellerhoven e Cromolitografado por Hangard-Maugé. A reprodução a duas cores é de Lemercier. Exemplar apresenta leves manchas devidas a oxidação natural do papel. Obra de grande primor no trabalho tipográfico e de encadernação. Todo o texto referente à lenda da princesa e das suas onze mil virgens, esta regrado por uma bela tarja xilografica, onde se conta a história do nascimento, infância e martírio de Santa Úrsula. Contém um breve dirigido a F. Kellerhoven, editor e autor das cromolitografias, datado de Roma, 14 de Março de 1863, com a bênção apostólica do Papa Pio IX salientando ?a paciência, a habilidade e a perfeição na execução desta magnífica obra.? Integra a história de Santa Úrsula e um apêndice dividido em quatro partes nas quais o autor reflecte sobre os critérios para a analise de antigas biografias de santos, analisa as obras publicadas sobre Santa Úrsula, descreve numerosas obras de arte inspiradas pela santa e dá algumas notas relativas ao texto. Segundo algumas fontes tardias Úrsula seria filha de Théonoto, rei da Irlanda, ao longo da sua vida de santidade, manteve-se pura, nobre, humilde e com doutissimos conhecimentos das Santas Escrituras, foi martirizada pelo Hunos, em 381, juntamente com as suas companheiras. O seu culto teve uma enorme expansão por todo a Europa, existindo confrarias e congregações religiosas com a sua inspiração e um enorme impacto na arte (ver Retábulo no Museu de Arte Antiga, em Lisboa) mas as fontes contemporâneas são escassas e algo confusas levando a que por prudência o Papa Paulo VI, cerca de 1969, tenha retirado o seu nome da lista dos santos. Este facto não significa que se declare que ela não existiu nem que não possa ser de objecto de culto particular, é apenas para garantir que sobre as biografias dos santos incluídos na lista oficial da Igreja Católica, não existam quaisquer dúvidas. Papa Pio IX. (1792-1878) exerceu o cargo durante 31 anos, o mais longo papado depois de S. Pedro e um dos mais importantes tendo reunido o Concílio Vaticano I e proclamado o dogma da Imaculada Conceição. Book bounded in red marroquin, tooled in the spine and in the framework of folders with double decorative lines and super-libris with armored coat-of-arms of Pope Pius IX (1846-1878) on both folders. Finishing of the leaves with blue and decorative gold. Masterpiece of typographical work and bookbinding. Chromolithographies printed separately - colored and goldened stamps - inspired on the illuminated books of hours. Copy stained with natural foxing of the paper. The story tells the legend of the Eleven Thousand Virgins, which tells the story of the birth and childhood of the daughter of Théonoto of Ireland, and her life of holiness and knowledge of Holy Scripture. The text is ruled by beautiful stripe woodcuts. Location/localizacao: 2-2-D-8

        CATLIN THE ARTIST SHOOTING BUFFALOS [sic] WITH COLT'S REVOLVING PISTOL [caption title].

      London: Day & Son, [ca. 1855-1860 - Hand-finished color-printed lithograph, 17 3/4 x 22 1/2 inches. Matted. Very light marginal dampstaining and mat burn. Very good. When the United States Senate rejected an 1852 bill proposing the purchase for the nation of George Catlin's "Indian Gallery," the artist was bankrupted and lost virtually all of the paintings and drawings he had used in his exhibitions. In order to raise funds, Catlin proposed an expedition to market Samuel Colt's firearms. Colt was eager to publicize his new revolving pistols and rifles and to have them adopted by the United States Army, and he commissioned Catlin to "paint a series of twelve pictures showing Colts being employed in the field. The terms of their agreement are unclear, but Catlin completed the order by 1857, and the Colt Patent Fire-Arms Manufacturing Company subsequently used the paintings in its advertising" (Dippie). "Six of the paintings were turned into lithographs, but few sets seem to have been made" - AMERICA PICTURED TO THE LIFE. The set of lithographs, all of which are drawn in Catlin's distinctive style, show the artist using Colt firearms in the wilds of both North and South America. The plates were printed in London by Day & Son, the best known British lithographic printers of the period. Catlin's images were drawn on stone by J. M'Gahey of Chester, England. These prints are not in any of the standard bibliographies, and the only other recorded sets are in the Colt Firearms Collection (Connecticut State Library in Hartford), the Amon Carter Museum, Yale University (the Paul Mellon set) and the Wadsworth Athenaeum. OCLC locates an additional two copies of this print at the University of Utah and the Crystal Bridges Museum. This image depicts Catlin participating in a buffalo hunt, with two native riders in the background and in the fore Catlin riding between two buffaloes and firing his pistol at one. The caption text reads, "He writes, I gave five shots to the right and left, four of which were fatal to the heart, and all in less than half a minute."

        6 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Wien, 1854-1860. - „[.] From the mid 1850’s onwards O’Sullivan secretly takes part in the expansionist agenda of Prince Leopold, Duke of Brabant, thus becoming a member of the broad but informal network surrounding the prince. Together they develop a daring project, though one that will remain hypothetical, consisting of a Belgian military action during the Crimean War. O’Sullivan begins to work on a new definition of the concept of neutrality; a concept that will be abandoned in exchange for territorial acquisition. The goal is that Belgium will become more independent of France through a deeper connection to the allies during the war; and that territorial expansion will be on the Rhine, at the cost of Prussia, rather than of Holland, which is what the Duke of Brabant had in mind. A second line of thought concerns the aftermath of the Crimean War, when, in O’Sullivan’s opinion, the Ottoman position will be seriously weakened, making it possible for Belgium to occupy certain parts of the empire. O’Sullivan shows himself in his correspondence with the prince to be a hardliner expansionist, willing to topple the Sultan and replace him with a Christian, preferably Catholic, king recruited in Belgium, where a tradition of political neutrality existed. A few years later, upon the Duke of Brabant’s return from Constantinople via Trieste in May 1860, O’Sullivan delivers a memorandum to the prince entitled ‚Mémoire sur la formation d’une compagnie belge dans l’archipel méditerranéen‘. This memo comprises a scheme to occupy an island in the eastern Mediterranean (Crete or Cyprus), that will be bought or leased from the Sultan, and provides a blueprint for commercial exploitation under the protection of Leopold I, with the Duke of Brabant as president of the Board of Directors [.]" (Dr. Jan Anckaer). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Sprache: Französisch Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]
