        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

        Edgar Allan Poe Carte-de-visite, (CDV), Cabinet Card Photo, Circa 1860"s

      E. & H. T. Anthony, (1860's), New York - This is an albumen carte-de-visite with an image size of 2 3/16" by 3 5/16" mounted on an original 2 7/16" by 4 1/16" thin stiff card. The back of the card lists the name of the photography studio, "Published by E. & H. T. Anthony, 501 Broadway, New York. From Photographic Negative in Brady's National Portrait Gallery". The name Edgar A. Poe has been written on both the front, below the image, and rear of the card. Michael J. Deas' book, "The Portraits and Daguerreotypes of Edgar Allan Poe" on page 90 notes that this approximate size albumen carte-de-visite photograph was distributed during the 1860's. The history of this image is rather obscure and complicated, but most likely copied with some retouching from an original daguerreotype, the "Ultima Thule", of Poe taken in 1848 the year before he died. Condition is clean with age toning and corners of the stiff card are slightly clipped, not affecting the image itself. Now protected in a mylar sleeve. A scarce, rarely seen early image of one of the great early American authors.

        LA LÉGENDE DE SAINTE URSULE [ENCADERNAÇÃO ARTÍSTICA]

      - Princesse Britannique et ses onze mille vierges. D?Après les anciens tableaux de l?église de Sainte-Ursule a Cologne reproduits en chromolitographie. Publié par F. Kellerhoven, texte par J. 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." MILES & REESE, AMERICA PICTURED TO THE LIFE 69. Dippie, CATLIN AND HIS CONTEMPORARIES: THE POLITICS OF PATRONAGE (1990).

        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]

        Ilm Tedbiri Milk. ?The Science of The Administration of a State?; or An Essay on Political Economy in Turkish, Being The First Ever Written In That Language.

      1860 - First edition. Small 8vo., viii, [2pp.], [90pp.], started at both ends, introduction and contents in English, Ottoman Turkish text lithographed in red and black within red ruled boxes, on stiff white paper, in contemporary, blind stamped, grained purple cloth, gilt titles and decoration on lower board, all edges gilt, an inscribed presentation copy from the author to the Royal Society of Literature. London and Edinburgh, Williams and Norgate, The full inscription in purple ink (perhaps to match the cloth), in a strong, neat hand, on the front free endpaper reads: ?To The Royal Society of Literature with the Author's compliments? In very good condition, the backstrip rather faded and a trifle chipped on the head and tail. Atabey 1325. Not in Blackmer. Rare in commerce as only one copy, the Atabey, has appeared at auction as a named item in the last 30 or so years. This was an association copy given to Bulwer-Lytton. There were probably few (if any) buyers of this very specialised book in London literary life. Wells was evidently a scrupulous purist as he had his manuscript lithographed as ?.few if any printers in England could read it? Atabey describes him as a prize winning ?.arabist and Turkish scholar.? but one who was ?.mistaken in thinking that his was the first tract on the subject of political economy to be written in Turkish? However, no other suitors for the title are offered up as alternatives. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Kitchi-Gami. Wanderings round Lake Superior

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1860. First edition in English, 8vo, pp. xii, 428, plus 32-p. Chapman & Hall catalogue; a very good copy in orignal brown cloth stamped in gilt. In our experience this is a difficult book to find in nice condition in original cloth. "One of the most exhaustive and valuable treatises on Indian life ever written" (Sabin). Field notes that the book is "wholly the result of personal experience, and one which only the most fervent scientific zeal and earnest self-abnegation, as well as a very high order of intelligence could produce. [Kohl] endeavored to penetrate the thick veil of distrust, ignorance and superstition which conceal the mind of the Indian, and learn the innate traverses of thought which give motive to his soul." The book was first published in German in Bremen in 1859. Howes K247; Sabin 38215; Graff 2354; Field 842; TPL 3573; Lande 1894.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Heidelberg u. Breslau, 14. X. 1860. - [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - „[.] In Betreff des Spectralapparats war ich mit Kirchhoff vor zwei Monaten in München, um mit [Carl August von] Steinheil über die beste Einrichtung zu conferiren, und einen Apparat für mich zu bestellen, dessen Preis er zu 150 Gulden Rheinisch veranschlagt hat. Er wird uns den Apparat noch ehe er ganz fertig ist hierher senden, damit wir erst die nöthigen Prüfungen und Abänderungen mit demselben [?] vornehmen können. Ich möchte Ihnen doch rathen, es abzuwarten, bis der Apparat seine vollendetste Form erhalten hat und erst dann [?] bei Steinheil zu bestellen. Der Apparat wird so eingerichtet, daß man die Flamme [.]" [folgen weitere Erklärungen]. - Bedeutender Brief Bunsens über die Verbesserung und Produktion des nach ihm benannten „Bunsenbrenners". - „[.] Nach sieben Jahren brach Bunsen 1859 die Zusammenarbeit mit Roscoe ab und arbeitete zusammen mit Kirchhoff an der Spektralanalyse chemischer Elemente. Mit Hilfe der Spektroskopie konnten bei der Erhitzung chemischer Substanzen in Flammen die charakteristischen Spektrallinien untersucht werden. Zu diesem Zweck perfektionierte Bunsen einen besonderen Gasbrenner, der zuvor durch Michael Faraday erfunden worden war und später den Namen Bunsens erhalten sollte [.]" (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: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]
