Photograph of the Madonna and Child on the title page as part of the decorative border.

Cowell took out a license on the anastatic process in 1848, and for a time was the only anastatic press in the country.

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.

        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

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."

      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]

        The Miscellaneous Writings of Lord Macaulay in Two Volumes: Volume 1 (of 2) [Signed by John Pascoe Fawkner]

      Longman, Green, Longman, & Roberts, London 1860 - JOHN PASCOE FAWKNER'S COPY of LORD MACAULAY. SIGNED in full by JOHN PASCOE FAWKNER in black ink on ffep. Very faint signature, the "Fawkner" portion has almost completely faded, though still legible. John Pascoe Fawkner (1792-1869), founder of Melbourne, Australia; early pioneer, businessman, politician. He is the namesake of two Melbourne suburbs, Fawkner & Pascoe Vale. VOLUME 1 only (of 2). FIRST EDITION, published 1860. Frontispiece engraving of Macaulay with facsimile signature printed below. With erratum sheet bound in following contents page. Bound in publisher's original blind-stamped brown cloth. Fair only, this volume lacks top half of spine, damage to foot of spine, covers are moderately soiled & stained & worn, hinges tender, binding cracked at page 160, light marginal staining throughout, otherwise a reading copy only. The value obviously lies in the fact that it was Fawkner's own personal copy of a much read/used book, with his ownership signature. Fawkner lived a fascinating life. "He was born in 1792 in Cripplegate, London. His father was convicted of receiving stolen goods & in 1801 was sentenced to fourteen years transportation. With his mother & younger sister, Elizabeth, 11-year old John accompanied his father to the new settlement to be formed in Bass Strait. They joined H.M.S. Calcutta at Portsmouth & sailed on 29 April 1803 in company with the Ocean, carrying a number of free settlers & stores. After Port Phillip was abandoned & the convicts & settlers were moved to Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania), the Fawkners lived in a primitive hut at the new settlement on Sullivan's Cove, suffering great hardship & continuing shortages of food. During one period when scurvy was rife, young Fawkner lost the use of his right leg for some months. In 1835 he financed a party of free settlers from Van Diemen's Land, to sail to the mainland in his ship, Enterprise. Fawkner's party sailed to Port Phillip Bay & up the Yarra River to found a settlement which became the city of Melbourne. Fawkner himself landed at Hobson's Bay in October 1835 & at once began to lay the foundations of a fortune that grew to £20,000 in his first four years on the mainland. In January 1838 he added to his trade of hotel-keeping that of newspaper proprietor. His Melbourne Advertiser was handwritten on four pages of foolscap for nine numbers until a press & type arrived from Tasmania, & it was then printed weekly until suppressed because Fawkner had no licence. In February 1839, with a licence, he began the Port Phillip Patriot & Melbourne Advertiser; this later became a daily, & he ran it in conjunction with a bookselling & stationery business. In 1839 Fawkner also added to his already considerable land holdings a 780-acre (316 ha) property known as Pascoe Vale. As a man of property & influence, Fawkner took an active & leading part in the political & social struggles of the time. Fawkner died on 4 September 1869 at his home in Smith Street, Collingwood, the grand old man of contemporary Victoria." (largely from: Hugh Anderson, 'Fawkner, John Pascoe (1792 - 1869)', Australian Dictionary of Biography, Vol. 1, Melbourne University Press, 1966, pp.368-370). Thomas Babington Macaulay (Lord Macaulay) (1800-1859) was a British poet, historian & Whig politician. He wrote extensively as an essayist & reviewer, & on British history. He also held political office as Secretary at War between 1839 & 1841 & Paymaster-General between 1846 & 1848. He was made Secretary at War in 1839 by Lord Melbourne & was sworn of the Privy Council the same year. The Miscellaneous Writings of Lord Macaulay was printed in 1860 by Spottiswoode & Co., London. 395pp + 24pp ads. Extremely RARE & UNIQUE SIGNED COPY from the library of the founder of Melbourne.

        The Arctic Regions and Polar Discoveries During the Nineteenth Century: With the Discoveries Made by Captain McClintock as to the Fate of the Franklin Expedition.

      - London, Routledge, Warne, and Routledge. 1860. Small 8vo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered and ornamented in gilt; pp. [3, advertisements], xi, 294, 6, [4, advertisements]; large folding lithographic map with the location of Franklin's remains marked in red, map and title with a few minor spots and one repaired tear, otherwise a very good copy; contemporary school prize bookplate inside front cover. This is the first edition of this popular history of Arctic exploration to report on McClintock's expedition and discovery of the remains of Franklin's expedition; therefore very rare. This ninth edition of Simmonds book has a preface dated November 24, 1859 (two months after McClintock's return from the Arctic), and on pages 241 to the end of the volume is an account of the Franklin search expedition and their findings. Simmonds was a writer on the sciences and manufacturing and a well-connected journalist, who managed to get news of importance almost immediately. The arrival of McClintock's expedition and their findings must have instigated to rewrite parts of the Arctic Regions and Polar Discoveries, a book which had appeared first in 1851, focussing on Franklin's fate.

        United States Mail Steamer Fulton, J.A. Wotten, commander. Burthen 2300 tons.

      Endicott & Co. New York -70s 1860 - Lithograph printed in colour (image 50 x 84 cm; sheet 63 x 94,5 cm) after a drawing by Parsons; small tear in right margin, anciently laid-down but in fine condition. An early work by a master of the genre: a fine example, with wide margins, of this beautiful chromolithograph. Before serving as the art director for Harper's Weekly and Magazine from 1863 to 1889 and as such being instrumental in the development of the art of American illustration, Charles Parsons (1821-1910) apprenticed at 15 to the New York lithographic studio of George Endicott (1802-1848). Through Endicott's studio he worked directly for the famous firm of Currier & Ives, and deserves credit for many of the best marine lithographs ever produced. Before he left for Harper's he was made a full partner and it was undoubtedly his marines which earned him the position and drew the most public attention. He chose to revisit nautical subjects when he returned to watercolours and lithography in retirement from Harper's. Parsons was an associate member of the National Academy of Design and a member of the New York Watercolor Society. The United State Mail Steamer Fulton, commanded by James A. Wotton, travelled in the 1850s and 1860s across the Atlantic Ocean, from Le Havre to New York through Southampton to deliver passengers and mails to the United States Quartermaster. Numerous reports about her voyages were published in The New York Times in the 1860s. An advertisement from the 15th March 1856 quoted the price of passage for First Cabin at $130 and for Second Cabin at $75. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
