        EXPLORATIONS AND ADVENTURES IN EQUATORIAL AFRICA. With Accouts of the Manners and Customs of the People, and of the Chace of the Gorilla, Crocodile, Leopard, Elephant, Hippopotamus, and Other Animals

      London John Murray 1861 - First edition. With 73 black and white illustrations, including a folding frontispiece of a gorilla (the first ever of the animal) and a folding map at the rear. 8vo, in a beautiful binding of full polished natural calf, the spine with compartments decorated with fully gilt panel designs, one compartment with a red morocco lettering piece gilt. xviii, 479 pp. A very bright and uncommonly fresh copy, much nicer then is typically found, internally a very fresh clean copy virtually free of any spotting, the folding map and folding gorilla plate in excellent order. RARE FIRST EDITION IN THE FINE POLISHED CALF BINDING . It was on this expedition that Du Chaillu confirmed the existence of that "monstrous and ferocious ape, the gorilla." His work is one of the seminal pieces of early Central African exploration. Copies of this, his most important work are especially elusive now in such handsome condition. Du Chaillu’s travels to Equatorial Africa were to an area previously unexplored by Europeans--the wooded region bordering the Equator, in the interior of Western Africa. It was on this journey that he was able to observe the habits of several remarkable species of animals found nowhere else and heretofore unknown. These included the gorilla, and Du Chaillu’s famous engraving was the first published illustration of this remarkable animal. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Reports of Explorations and Surveys, to Ascertain the Most Practicable and Economical Route for a Railroad from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean... Volume XI [11]. Senate Document, 36th Congress, 2nd Session

      Washington, DC: George W. Bowman. 1861. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. F First Edition. H Hard Cover. Fair. First edition, 1861. Volume 11, Senate issue - the volume that contains the maps, profiles and plates. All are present, condition varies. Brown blindstamped cloth, 11.75" tall, 2.5" thick. Covers heavily rubbed and chipped, spine covering detached but present with some chipping, text block sound, text pages quite heavily foxed, some foxing to plates, mainly in margins. Four folding plates have been bound in upside down, the result of which is that they cannot be opened without creating small holes in the center of the folds, as evidenced by the Humbolt map, which has been opened. All maps have some darkening at the folds and all have closed tears, mainly at the fold lines, some occasional foxing but mainly age- darkening. The general map, in color, is a very large size and is only in fair condition with numerous closed tears along the fold lines and a 1" x 2" chip near the center. Essentially a reading copy and priced accordingly.

        Sloan's Homestead Architecture, Containing Forty Designs for Villas, Cottages, and Farm Houses, with Essays on Style, Construction, Landscape Gardening, Furniture, Etc, Etc

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1861. First Edition. Hardcover.

Recently rebound in quarter leather and marbled boards, with spine label, raised bands, and gilt rules. Light soiling and foxing throughout, a bit musty. Very good. Sloan began his career as a carpenter, but read widely and taught himself the principles of architecture. By the 1850s, he had become "the chosen architect of Philadelphia's rising industrial and entrepreneurial elite. For them he built mansions, commercial buildings, speculative housing, even entire resort communities" (ANB). This is one of several successful pattern books Sloan authored, each containing detailed drawings (plans, elevations, sections, etc) together with descriptions of the designs and short essays on style, site selection, construction, furnishings, etc.

        Autograph musical quotation signed.

      Probably Vienna, 20. V. 1861. - Oblong large 8vo. 1 p. Three bars from "Lohengrin", "in memory of Vienna / 20 May 1861 / Richard Wagner" (transl.). - With the great success of "Tannhäuser" at Vienna's Thalia Theatre in 1857, the great Viennese houses opened their doors to Wagner: in 1858 the Court Opera decided to stage "Lohengrin". Wagner himself had never witnessed a performance. His opportunity came when he visited Vienna for the third time in May 1861. He attended the rehearsals and was moved to tears: "This rehearsal surpassed all my expectations by far, and for the first time in my artistic life so full of suffering and strife did I experience complete, all-reconciling pleasure" (to Minna Wagner, Vienna, 13 May 1861). At the première Wagner was cheered by the audience and had to take bows after every Act. - A fine, decorative leaf, documenting an artistic climax during Wagner's often despondent years of wandering.

      Wohl Wien, 20. V. 1861.. 1 S. Qu.-gr.-8vo.. Drei Takte aus Lohengrin "zur Erinnerung an Wien / 20 Mai 1861 / Richard Wagner". - Mit dem Publikumserfolg seines "Tannhäuser" am Wiener Thalia-Theater 1857 hatten sich Wagner die Türen zu den großen Häusern der Hauptstadt geöffnet: 1858 entschloss sich die Hofoper, "Lohengrin" aufzuführen. Wagner selbst hatte das Stück noch nie gehört. Erst bei seiner im Mai 1861 unternommenen dritten Reise nach Wien hatte er endlich Gelegenheit dazu. Er wohnte der Probe bei und war zu Tränen gerührt: "Diese Probe hat alle meine Erwartungen weit übertroffen, und zum ersten Mal in meinem müh- und leidenvollen Künstlerleben empfing ich einen vollständigen, Alles versöhnenden Genuß" (an Minna Wagner, Wien, 13. Mai 1861). Bei der Aufführung erlebte Wagner den stürmischen Jubel des Publikums und musste sich nach jedem Akt auf der Bühne zeigen. - Schönes, dekoratives Blatt, das einen künstlerischen Höhepunkt während der oft verzweifelten Wagner'schen Wanderjahre dokumentiert.

      Wien, 24. XI. 1861.. 1 S. Kl.-4to.. "Endesgefertigter verpflichtet sich hiemit das noch nirgends abgedruckte Spott- und Schmähquartett für Solo-Stimmen mit Chor, welches den Titel führt: 'Lob auf den Dicken' und welches Beethoven auf den Schuppanzigh, Primgeiger in dem berühmten Fürst Rasumowsky'schen Streichquartette in Wien componiert hat (der Text ist ebenfalls von der Erfindung und Hand des unsterblichen Tonheros) ohne Einwilligung des Herrn Johann Nep. Kafka Tonkünstlers in Wien, als Besitzers dieser Beethoven'schen Originalhandschrift, nirgends - weder abdrucken zu lassen noch sonst auf eine andere Art in die Öffentlichkeit zu bringen". - Mittig quer gefaltet (kl. Bugeinriss). Verso von anderer Hand bezeichnet: "London Musical World / Radacteur [!] J. W. Davison". - Beethoven widmete dem korpulenten Violinisten Ignaz Schuppanzigh (1776-1830), der ihm selbst Geigenunterricht gab, das scherzhafte Chorstück "Lob auf den Dicken". Alexander Wheelock Thayer, zunächst Bibliothekar an der Harvard Law School, betrieb seit 1849 ausgedehnte Beethoven-Studien in Europa. 1862 wechselte er in den diplomatischen Dienst und diente von 1865 bis 1882 als amerikanischer Konsul in Triest; das Amt sicherte ihm die wirtschaftliche Basis für seine Beethovenstudien. Seine monumentale Beethoven-Biographie, ein Meilenstein der Forschung, war bei seinem Tode erst in drei Bänden veröffentlicht; die restlichen beiden Bände gab Hugo Riemann posthum heraus.

      London: Dean & Son, 1861. Hardcover. Very good. 4to. Cloth spine and edges, paper covers, the upper board in color. With six full page, hand colored transformation pictures of the 'slat transformation' kind: Fair/Dark; War/Peace; The Ocean Way/The Iron Way; Outside/Inside; Danger/Safety; Saturday Night/Sunday Morning. Each scene changes from one to the other when the tab at the bottom is pulled. Of the total of 48 slats, 14 have been replaced in hand-drawn and hand-colored facsimile. All of the pull tabs have been replaced. All of the mechanisms now work properly. There is some discoloration here and there to the plates, and also some repaired tears, but overall this is a very good exemplar, even taking into account the facsimile slats. And exceedingly scarce. Montano, p. 70. Osborne, p, 417. Date of publication (1861) is taken from the final scene; Osborne and Montano both suggest (1862). Either way this is one of the earliest movable books, by the self-styled originators of the genre.

      Göttingen, 1861-1874.. Zus. 9 S., 8° u. Gr.-8°.. An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - "[...] Wöhler gilt als Pionier der organischen Chemie wegen seiner Synthese von Oxalsäure durch Hydrolyse von Dicyan 1824 und von Harnstoff aus Ammoniumcyanat im Jahre 1828. Diese Synthesen eröffneten das Feld der Biochemie, da zum ersten Mal Stoffe, die bisher nur von lebenden Organismen bekannt waren, aus unbelebter' Materie künstlich erzeugt werden konnten. Diese In-vitro-Synthesen wurden zunächst von den Chemikern kaum wahrgenommen, da die Zeit dafür noch nicht reif war. Mit zunehmendem Erfolg der Chemiker auf dem Gebiet der organischen Synthesechemie sah man aber Wöhlers Synthese immer mehr als Beginn dieses Zweiges der Chemie an, womit sich rund um die Harnstoffsynthese geradezu ein Schöpfungsmythos' der organischen Chemie entwickelte, der bis heute in vielen Chemielehrbüchern, aber auch historischen Darstellungen zu finden ist [...]" (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. - Tlw. gefalt. bzw. mit min. Randläsuren. -

      London, 30. XI. 1861.. 1 S., 8°.. An "My dear Schröter" (den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - Faraday gilt als einer der bedeutendsten Experimentalphysiker. Seine Entdeckungen der "elektromagnetischen Rotation" und der elektromagnetischen Induktion legten den Grundstein zur Herausbildung der Elektroindustrie. Seine anschaulichen Deutungen des magnetooptischen Effekts und des Diamagnetismus mittels Kraftlinien und Feldern führten zur Entwicklung der Theorie des Elektromagnetismus. Bereits um 1820 galt Faraday als führender chemischer Analytiker Großbritanniens. Er entdeckte eine Reihe von neuen Kohlenwasserstoffen, darunter Benzol und Buten, und formulierte die Grundgesetze der Elektrolyse. --- 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.

        An Act to Incorporate the Town of Dekalb.

      1861 - An Unrecorded Illinois Broadside? [Broadside]. [Illinois]. Twenty-Second General Assembly. An Act to Incorporate the Town of Dekalb. [Springfield, IL, 1861]. 25" x 14" broadside, dense text in five columns. Complete as issued. Light browning, fold lines, a few chips to each edge, isolated spots to wear at centerfold touching five words, all easily inferred. A rare item. * As far as we can determine, this broadside printing of the act founding this northern Illinois town, home of Northern Illinois University, is unrecorded. This appears to be an unofficial printing. The anonymous printer ran out of space at the end of the fifth column of text. Omitting the penultimate Article 44, on filling the vacancy of the office of the constable, the printer assigned that number to the final pro-forma two-line article, "This act shall be deemed a public act. &c.," but then omitted the date, "Approved Feb. 21, 1861." No copies listed on OCLC or in the state-wide catalogue of the Illinois State Library.

        Dean's New Book of Dissolving Pictures

      London: Dean & Son, 1861. Hardcover. Very good. 4to. Cloth spine and edges, paper covers, the upper board in color. With six full page, hand colored transformation pictures of the 'slat transformation' kind: Fair/Dark; War/Peace; The Ocean Way/The Iron Way; Outside/Inside; Danger/Safety; Saturday Night/Sunday Morning. Each scene changes from one to the other when the tab at the bottom is pulled. Of the total of 48 slats, 14 have been replaced in hand-drawn and hand-colored facsimile. All of the pull tabs have been replaced. All of the mechanisms now work properly. There is some discoloration here and there to the plates, and also some repaired tears, but overall this is a very good exemplar, even taking into account the facsimile slats. And exceedingly scarce. Montano, p. 70. Osborne, p, 417. Date of publication (1861) is taken from the final scene; Osborne and Montano both suggest (1862). Either way this is one of the earliest movable books, by the self-styled originators of the genre.

Mit 102 Original-Holzschnitten von Ludwig von Hofmann. 420 S., 4 Bl.; 337 S., 3 Bl. Orig.-Pergamentbände mit 6 durchgezogenen Bünden, reicher Rückenvergoldung u. vergold. Deckelornament.

      . . Schauer II, 43; Rodenberg 244. - Ausgabe in Ganzpergament-Einbänden; jeweils Nr. 836 von 1000 handschriftlich nummerierten Exemplaren (GA 1100). "Als fünftes (und sechstes) Buch in der von Marcus Behmer gezeichneten Schrift nach dessen Plan und Angaben bei Otto von Holten zu Berlin gedruckt" (Impressum). Sehr schöner Druck auf an zwei Seiten unbeschnittenem Bütten. Die Illustrationen - 48 Holzschnitte für die Ilias und 54 für die Odyssee - schuf Ludwig von Hofmann (1861-1945). Hofmann war u.a. einer der führende Köpfe der Bewegung "Neues Weimar" um Harry Graf Kessler und Henry van de Velde. Er hatte erst spät in seiner künstlerischen Karriere (1919) mit der Illustration von Bücher begonnen und Marcus Behmer 1921 bei der gemeinsamen Arbeit an "Das Hohelied Salomos" kennen und schätzen gelernt. Für die Gestaltung von Ilias und Odyssee arbeiteten sie auf das engste zusammen. "Marcus, der Schriftgestalter, und Ludwig, der Zeichner, behandelten das Problem der Buchillustration in kongenialer Weise: als Verschmelzung zweier Künste, (...). Mit der Schrift Marcus Behmers zusammen entstand die buchtechnisch-bibliophile Einheit, bei der jede Zeile berechnet wurde, dazu Kopfstücke, Hauptbild und Schlußstücke eines jeden Gesanges in der erwünschten Tonart und Proportion. Da mußte jede Geste sehr lebendig, natürlich und genau überlegt sein." (Eleonore v. Hofmann: Im Kreis der Elite. Persönliche Erinnerungen an Ludwig von Hofmann. In: Speculum Artis Nr. 6 (1963), S. 28). - Einige der etwas weiter vorstehenden Büttenränder angestaubt, sonst schönes Exemplar. ** Bestellungen bis 14 Uhr versenden wir am selben Tag. - Schweizer Postkonto vorhanden. **

Osborn D.D., secretary of the Wesleyan Methodist Missionary society.Jones's father was a Welsh surveyor in northern Canada and his mother was the daughter of the chief of the Mississauga tribe of the Ojibways. He grew up primarily with his mother, as his father traveled much of the time for his work, and at the age of 21 he converted to Christianity, becoming a missionary to the Ojibways. These are the first journals kept by a Canadian native. He became the first native missionary to the Ojibwa, and, with his brother John, was the first translator of books of the Bible into Ojibwa and Chippewa. Although preceded by George Copway's history of the Ojibway tribe, this was the first comprehensive and unified history of the tribe. Posthumously published in 1856.Jones was also photographed [The Hill and Adamson Portrait, [August 4, 1845] in his native regalia - thus the earliest known photograph of a North American Indian.

        AUTOGRAPH QUOTATION SIGNED from Longfellow's Translation of Dante's DIVINE COMEDY

      n.p., n.d.. Document. Chipping to the edges of the somewhat fragile paper but with no effect at all on Longfellow's writing which is dark and bold. Near Fine. On a 6" x 9" endpaper removed from an early printing of a volume of Longfellow's translation of Dante's DIVINE COMEDY, the poet has written the first 3 lines of Canto III from the poem and has SIGNED "Henry W. Longfellow" at the conclusion: "I enter, and I see thee in the gloom/Of the long aisles, O poet Saturnine!/And strive to make my steps keep pace with thine." On 9 July 1861 while Longfellow was napping, his wife Fanny accidentally lit her dress on fire. Longfellow tried to smother the flames first with a rug and then with his body, but the burns were fatal and Fanny died the next morning. Longfellow was burned badly enough that he was unable to attend her funeral and thereafter wore a beard which became his trademark. After Fanny's death, the poet took refuge in translating Dante's DIVINE COMEDY, a task that would occupy much of his time for the next several years. To assist him in the translation, he invited friends--William Dean Howells, James Russell Lowell, Charles Eliot Norton and other occasional guests--to weekly meetings of "The Dante Club." Longfellow's translation, the first by an American, was published in 1867 and revised by him at later dates.
