        Substantial Letter on plant research Signed, 3 pp on one sheet of printed address stationery, Down, Beckenham, Kent, June 5, 1878

      He replies to an identified correspondent for an "interesting letter. I will forward it to my son Francis, who has gone to Germany for 2 months, & he will particularly like to read your letter. I have been the more interested in your details, as I published (Gardener's Chronicle Jan 5 1861...) a short note with a rude drawing of the Achenes of the Australian Pumilio argyrolepis, which are a curious shape, like the foot of a man. If they fall laterally on a damp surface, the landed mucilage in drying, draws them upright, so that they appear as if gummed with great care to the surface. I afterwards heard that Decaisne had published a paper on the subject in the Ann-des Science Nat., & after reading it, looked at the Achenes of Senecio & some other compositoe; but I did not make out the details which you so clearly describe & figure. I have placed some of the seeds from your packet under the microscope, but have as yet failed to see the viscid threads. Possibly this particular of seed may not have been quite ripe; for I cannot understand why I now fail to see what I formerly saw-...." He signs with his uncommon full signature, "Charles Darwin."

        BOUND For HONG KONG On BOARD The ORIENTAL, 1861 - 1862. The Personal Account / MSS of Cornelius B. Gold

      (n. p.): 1861 - 1862.. (n. p.):. 1861 - 1862.. 8vo. 8-1/4" x 6-3/4". Unpaginated [62 pp, of which 3 are blank].. Brown marbled soft cover notebook with quarter-bound red leather spine.. Slight edge-wear to journal, rubbing to edges. Occasionally faded. handwriting (still legible) towards end of journal. Small,. superficial vertical tear to lower edge of back cover, top rear. corner creased. Author signature to verso of p. 1. Overall a VG+. example.. Cornelius Boudinot Gold was born June 27, 1839 in New York, New York, to parents Job Smith Gold and Catherine B. Smith. He married Margaret Shedd, and was listed in the 1910 census as holding the occupation of "banker" with "own income" listed thereafter. Evidence of a Cornelius B. Gold as treasurer and shareholder in various railroad and coal companies appears throughout the east post 1862, as well as treasurer for the Executive Committee of the Prison Association of New York in 1902. Margaret Gold died in 1915 in New York, and her obituary appears in the New York Times on June 3, 1915. Cornelius Boudinot Gold died in 1921 in Litchfield, Connecticut, but no obituary was found. & & This listing is for the hand scripted journal or log of Cornelius B. Gold, aged 23, American passenger turned sailor on board the merchant ships the Oriental, the White Cloud and the Jabez Snow, 1861 - 1862. Gold's journey took him from NY to Hong Kong on board the Oriental, within Hong Kong proper on the White Cloud, from Hong Kong to Liverpool on board the Jabez Snow, and finally to Manchester, this last leg by train, where the journal ends. The Oriental carried coal to China and returned with a cargo of hemp and sugar obtained in Manila. The Jabez Snow left China, bound for Liverpool, also stopping in the Philippines to obtain a cargo of the same. & & Detailed descriptions of the longitude and latitudes, weather, flora and fauna, various ports, seas and bays; descriptions of natives and foreigners in Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, and China; descriptions of captains, officers and sailors, death at sea, executions of pirates; detailed accounts merchant houses and of the social obligations and activities of Americans and Europeans abroad in the Orient in the mid 19th century. Includes the author's sketches of the west side view of Trinidad and Amsterdam Islands, and expenses from second half of voyage logged in final two pages of notebook. & & Gold also has a dry sense of humor:& "Wednesday Dec II [1861]. N.W. Wind. 7 A.M. Up anchor. & 8 A.M. Pilot taken off by a small propeller.& 8:10 Passenger vomits. Loose sight of never sink before noon. Still breeze. Midnight passenger thinks himself bound for 'Davy Jones' locker.' Is disappointed."& & While the 1784 voyage of the Empress of China from New York to Canton opened direct relations for the U.S. with China, it was not until the mid 19th century that American trade with China would boom. There were many factors contributing to the growth of American commerce and enterprise, including the first Opium War (1839 - 1842). The resulting conflicts between Great Britain and China were minor military battles with major diplomatic repercussions, and although the United States was not directly involved with the hostilities, American merchants would ultimately benefit from the British Treaty of Nanking (1842). The treaty forced China to open its ports to all foreigners, as well as establishing western immunity from Chinese law and persecution, and the transfer of the island of Hong Kong to British rule which further strengthened the island's role as a major hub of foreign trade, shipping and commerce. At the same time, the ship building industry was rapidly developing and the time period saw major innovations in cost and efficiency within the field. American shipwrights during this era were already building for speed and hold capacity, owing in part to the discovery of gold in California in 1847 and the massive emigration by ship from east coast to west coast of hopeful prospectors. & & The 1850 voyage of an American clipper in a record 97 days from Hong Kong to London is widely recognized as sparking the infamous Tea Races, a rivalry of speed and financial wealth between U.S. and British merchant houses that lasted well into the 1860's. British and American merchant ships vied for the quickest times from port to port, with higher prices being paid for cargo as the prize. American clippers were carrying half the trade of Shanghai during the period, but eventually, coupled with a slowly decreasing commercial demand for China products (South American coffee for example began to replace Chinese tea), the outbreak of the American Civil War in 1861 effectively snuffed out the American role in the Tea Race competition. The atmosphere remained in the greater merchant marine community for another ten years however, with the most famous race of the period being the 1866 contest between the British ships the Taeping and the Ariel. The ships entered the English Channel side by side to great spectcle after covering 13,000 miles. The China Clipper era of the tea trade finally died out by 1870 due to further advancements in industrialization, marine steam engines and the opening of the Suez Canal in 1869. & & Major China exports included tea, porcelain and silk. Major imports included lumber, cotton and opium. Coal was also a key import to Asia in the mid 19th century, owing to increased manufacturing, industrialization and the building of railroads, as well as the need for cheap fuel for the civil war that happened in China as a result of the Taiping Rebellion (1850 - 1864). & & In the midst of this exciting era: the Chinese Civil War, the Opium Wars, the tail end of major American trade expansion, and the cusp of the outbreak of the American Civil War, and American bark named the Oriental sailed from New York on December 11, 1861, bound for Hong Kong with a cargo of coal. A passenger aboard this ship, Cornelius B. Gold of New York and Connecticut, kept a journal of the daily events aboard the merchant vessel. The journal provides a charming and informative account of a typical voyage to the Orient during this time period, and of sailor's lives aboard such a ship. His journal further provides a unique look at the life of the merchant sailor and of a westerner abroad in China, as well as of a young man gaining worldly, and seaworthy, experience.

Ausgabe der gekrönten Preisschrift. - Poggendorf III; Hockey I; DSB I, 532: "In view of his wide-raniging interests, it is no wonder that Bruhns was influential. His superior lectures attracted many students; he was also active in the Astronomische Gesellschaft and initiated and equipped the first german astronomical expeditions. His energy and enthusiasm, however, had a strong effect on his colleagues, which should not be ignored." K.C. Bruhns (1830 - 1881) gelernter Schlosser wurde nach dem Studium Observator der Sternwarte in Berlin. Er lehrte seit 1859 als Privatdozent in Berlin und ein Jahr später als a.o. Professor an der Universität Leipzig. 1868 wurde er Ordinarius für Astronomie und Direktor der unter seiner Leitung erbauten Sternwarte. Es war Mitglied der preußischen Gradmessungskommission und war Mitbegründer des ersten deutschen meteorologischen Beobachtungssystems in Sachsen. Er entdeckte zahlreiche Kometen und bestimmte Bahnelemente schon bekannter Planetoiden und Kometen. - Vorsatz mit Besitzerstempel und Vortitel minimal braunfleckig.

        Die Pathologie und Therapie der psychischen Krankheiten für Aerzte und Studirende

      Stuttgart, Krabbe, 1861 (2., umgearbeitete und sehr vermehrte Aufl.).. 22,5 x 15,5cm, zeitgen. Halbleder, goldgeprägter Rückentitel, marmorierter Schnitt; VI, 538 S., sehr gutes Exemplar. 2. Aufl. des bekannten Lehrbuchs, noch von Griesinger selbst bearbeitet mit neuen Abschnitten über allgemeine Diagnostik bei psychischen Krankheiten und über Idiotismus und Cretinismus. Interessant sind auch die Änderungen des kleinen Abschnitts über die Irrencolonie in Gheel: während Griesinger in der ersten Auflage noch abschließend konstatierte, dass "wir eine Nachahmung von Gheel in anderen Ländern nicht für zweckmäßig, besonders aber nicht für möglich halten", ist er in dieser Auflage wesentlich moderater (wahrscheinlich aufgrund der Berichte z.B. von Roller) und schreibt, dass Gheel zeige, "dass ein grosser Theil der Irren zu seiner Verwahrung keinerlei Anstalten bedarf, dass viele von ihnen mehr Freiheit ertragen können, als man gewöhnlich annimmt, dass das Leben in und mit den Familien vielen dieser Kranken wohl zusagt"

      , 1861 1861. [in the 20 serial parts] With Illustrations by J. E. Millais. [In 20 monthly serial parts.] London: Chapman and Hall, 1861-1862. Original printed wrappers. First Edition, in the original twenty serial parts which were issued from March 1861 through October 1862. Included are forty full-page plates by the famous Pre-Raphaelite artist Sir John Everett Millais -- two in each part. "While it is primarily a tragedy of misdirected maternal love, the book contains much of the best Trollopian humor, and includes the portrait of his finest gentleman, Sir Peregrine Orme" [Gerould]. In his autobiography Trollope later noted,~The plot... is probably the best I have ever made; but it has the fault of declaring itself, and thus coming to an end too early in the book... I do not know that there is a dull page in the book.~This was the first of Trollope's eight novels that appeared in serial parts. After the tenth and twentieth part, a volume was issued in book form (preliminary leaves are provided in those two parts for that purpose).~This set of parts of course has all of the text and plates, but in addition it has almost all of the ad material found in an absolutely complete set. Part XIII lacks one of the preliminary ad leaves, the inset slip for "No Name," and the two leaves of ads at the rear; and in Parts XV and XVI combined, a portion of three rear ad leaves are partially torn away. Part VI does have the inset slip for "Great Expectations" and it does still have the cambric frilling sample (often missing) at the rear. As for condition: most of the wrappers have some darkening (or at least foxing around the edges); about five of the parts show edge-wear, particularly at the spine; the final part has three small stab-marks near its spine (as if it had once been bound in); on the other hand the Millais plates (and the text) are remarkably clean and free of foxing, and the leaves of nine of the twenty parts remain unopened. This is one of Trollope's scarcer novels in parts. Sadleir 13. Housed in a clamshell case.

        GREAT EXPECTATIONS

      , 1861. 1861. With Thirty-Four Illustrations from original drawings by John McLenan. Printed from the manuscript and early proof-sheets purchased from the author, for which Charles Dickens has been paid in cash, the sum of one thousand pounds sterling. Philadelphia: T. B. Peterson & Brothers, n.d. 6 pp undated ads [with Great Expectations not yet listed]. Original blind-stamped black cloth with spine vignette in gilt. First Illustrated American Edition -- in fact the first illustrated edition anywhere -- being Peterson's illustrated octavo issue. It was actually Harper who paid Dickens (as noted on the title page, above) for advance sheets; they then ran it in Harper's Weekly. They sold the book rights to Peterson of Philadelphia, who published it in July in several of his Dickens "library" series -- one of which was this illustrated octavo edition. John Gregory of New York did not publish GREAT EXPECTATIONS until September -- though his Library of Congress deposit may have preceded Harper's (who was notoriously lax in this regard).~The illustrations in this 266-page volume are separate plates; generally, for each Dickens title the first Peterson library edition to come out was the unillustrated one in wrappers, followed by a printing with separate plates (as here), followed by a printing with the illustrations integrated into the text. The illustrations for these Peterson editions of GREAT EXPECTATIONS are of much greater interest than those for other Dickens novels: because the first English edition was not illustrated, these illustrations by John McLenan constitute the first illustrations for this tale.~This copy is in good-plus condition, with some wear at the extremities (as usual), but still with the original endpapers and with only light foxing on the text leaves and plates).
