        The Landscape Album

      Leavitt and Allen, New York 1861 - Friendship book. Octavo. Full red decorated morocco, all edges gilt. Illustrated with black and white prints of landscapes. Some foxing, one page loose, covers worn with part of spine missing. Owned by Mary Low, this friendship book (sort of like a school yearbook) is inscribed by over forty people, with poems, brief messages of friendship, or religious verse. Some of the people who wrote in the book were Low's family and friends. A majority were her fellow students at the Ladies Collegiate Institute, a short-lived, all-female college in Worcester, Massachusetts. The president of the institute, Werden Reynolds (elected in 1859) also signed the book. The Ladies Collegiate Institute was incorporated in 1854 and opened in 1856. It was located in Davis Hall, which was built in 1852 by the architect Elbridge Boyden, who would later design Worcester's St. Paul's Cathedral. From 1852 to 1854, the building housed the Worcester Medical College. In 1855, the Ladies Collegiate Institute took over the property, only to close in 1860-1861. A nice souvenir of a short-lived enterprise, one of the early educational institutions dedicated to women's higher learning. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        6 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      La Roche-en-Brenil u.a., 1853-1861. - „Charles de Montalembert entstammte einer alteingesessenen Familie aus dem Angoumois, die zahlreiche Persönlichkeiten hervorgebracht hatte [.]. Sein Vater Marc-René de Montalembert floh 1792 vor der Terrorherrschaft und bekämpfte die Französische Revolution auf Seiten der Royalisten. 1808 heiratete er Élise Rosée Forbes, Tochter eines protestantischen Schotten, der in Indien und Afrika Forschungsreisen unternommen hatte. 1810 kam Charles als Erstgeborener in London zur Welt und wuchs bis 1819 bei seinem Großvater mütterlicherseits in Stanmore, einem Londoner Ortsteil, auf. Nach seiner Ankunft in Paris absolvierte er zunächst das Lycée Bourbon und wurde bald ein begabter Student. Unter Einfluss des britischen politischen Systems entwickelte er liberale Ideen. Die Konversion seiner Mutter zum katholischen Glauben im Jahre 1822 verstärkte seine religiöse Bindung. Als Student fand er Zeit zur Bildung eines bedeutenden intellektuellen und mondänen Bekanntenkreises. Er verkehrte im Salon von Delphine Gay und besuchte die Philosophievorlesungen von Victor Cousin. Nach der Julirevolution von 1830 wurde er 1831 Pair von Frankreich. Nach der Revolution von 1848/49 wurde er Abgeordneter der verfassunggebenden Versammlung und der Legislative der Zweiten Französischen Republik sowie der Legislative im Zweiten Kaiserreich. Er war Befürworter der konstitutionellen Monarchie sowie des Liberalismus. Als einer der wichtigsten französischen Theoretiker des liberalen Katholizismus setzte er sich für die Presse- und Vereinigungsfreiheit sowie das Selbstbestimmungsrecht der Völker ein. 1851 wurde er zum Mitglied der Académie française ernannt. - 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. - Beiliegend eine Kleinschrift Montalemberts (Discours [.] sur la position des chrétiens de Syrie.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      München, 2. VII. 1861. - [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Pettenkofer [.] besuchte [.] bis 1837 das Münchener Alte Gymnasium und studierte anschließend in München Pharmazie, Naturwissenschaft und Medizin. 1843 schloss er sein Studium mit der Promotion zum Doktor der Medizin, Chirurgie und Geburtshilfe ab. Gleichzeitig erwarb er die Approbation als Apotheker. Danach beschäftigte er sich in Würzburg mit Chemie und wechselte dann nach Gießen ins Labor Justus von Liebigs. 1847 ernannte man Pettenkofer zum Professor für medizinische Chemie an der Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München, deren Rektor er 1865 wurde. Im gleichen Jahr wurde er in München erster deutscher Professor für Hygiene und richtete dort von 1876 bis 1879 das erste Hygieneinstitut [Max von Pettenkofer-Institut] ein. 1883 verlieh man Pettenkofer den Erbadel; 1890 bis 1899 war er Präsident der Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften [.]" (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]

        Considerations on Representative Government.

      London: Parker, 1861. First edition of Mill's classic treatise on representative government. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by John Stuart Mill on the half-title page as was the custom with 19th century writers and earlier, "From the Author." From the library of Sir George Otto Trevelyan, 2nd Baronet (1838-1928), with his signature. Trevelyan was a British statesman and author. In a ministerial career stretching almost 30 years, he was most notably twice Secretary for Scotland under William Ewart Gladstone and the Earl of Rosebery. He broke with Gladstone over the 1886 Irish Home Rule Bill, but after modifications were made to the bill he re-joined the Liberal Party shortly afterwards. Also a writer and historian, Trevelyan published The Life and Letters of Lord Macaulay, his maternal uncle, in 1876. In very good condition with some toning to the cloth and overall light wear. In Considerations on Representative Government, Mill argues for representative government, the ideal form of government in his opinion. One of the more notable ideas Mill puts forth in the book is that the business of government representatives is not to make legislation. Instead Mill suggests that representative bodies such as parliaments and senates are best suited to be places of public debate on the various opinions held by the population and to act as watchdogs of the professionals who create and administer laws and policy. Mill writes, "Their part is to indicate wants, to be an organ for popular demands, and a place of adverse discussion for all opinions relating to public matters, both great and small; and, along with this, to check by criticism, and eventually by withdrawing their support, those high public officers who really conduct the public business, or who appoint those by whom it is conducted."

        CHARGE OF THE HON. JOHN J. PEARSON, AND THE REPORT OF THE GRAND JURY. AUGUST TERM, 1861.

      [Harrisburg?: 1861 - Elephant folio broadside, 9.5" x 24". Printed in three columns using different typesettings, surrounded by ornamental border. Old folds [splits along fold edges affecting occasional letters, a few old tape repairs on verso], small hole affecting a couple of letters, a few crimps. Tanned, several pencil underlines. Good copy of an unrecorded, and perhaps unique, document. Judge Pearson was appointed to the Dauphin County, Pennsylvania, bench in 1849. After Pennsylvania opted to elect judges, he was returned without opposition in 1851, 1861, and 1871. A popular man, he "had a deep rooted interest in the county" [Judge Homer L. Kreider, 'History of Dauphin County Courts. An Address Before the Historical Society of Dauphin County. January 21, 1952']. This lengthy Charge discusses the Nation's "fearful, bloody, and as we apprehend, protracted war, forced upon it without cause or reason by the so called Confederate States. It is the bounden duty of the Federal government to use every possible exertion, and strain every nerve, to suppress the rebellion, restore the Union, and re-establish the Constitution over the whole United States, and it is equally the duty of every citizen to contribute toward the support of a beneficent paternal and most indulgent government, in every way that his circumstances will permit." Judge Pearson warns against "traitorous correspondence with enemies of the United States, or of this State," and denounces the "secret orders in our State, having for their object the subversion of the Government, in whole or in part." Pearson counsels against selling liquor to soldiers, and tells "vendors of intoxicating liquors through the county and more especially in and around Harrisburg" that care should be taken in giving out "so dangerous an article. more especially at the present when the country is filled with newly levied soldiers, who with arms in their hands, and unrestrained by regular military discipline, are the most dangerous to the community," with the liquors rendering them "barbarous and desperate." The Grand Jury's Report discusses overcrowding in the prison, so extensive that solitary confinement was impossible; expresses regret that "some, standing prominently before this community have prostituted that position by attempting to prevent the true object of the war, and to damp the ardor of the people"; and asserts the duty of the press not to "spread doctrines and sentiments calculated to create disaffection to the government." Not located on OCLC, the online catalogues of the Library Company of Philadelphia, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, or the American Antiquarian Society as of October 2014. Not in Sabin, Bartlett.

        Topographical Map of the District of Columbia Surveyed in the Years 1856 '57 '58 & '59.

      D. McClelland, Blanchard & Mohun,, Washington, D.C., 1861 - The first detailed survey of D.C. and her environs Engraved map, 2 sheets joined (some minor repairs to margins). Albert Boschke (1823-1910) was a Polish-born civil engineer who worked for the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey in Washington, DC, from the mid 1850s onwards. It was whilst working there that he conceived the idea of making a highly accurate map of Washington and of the District of Columbia, with the hope of selling it to the Government as well as privately. He organized and employed a group of surveyors to do the fieldwork at his own expense. His grand project would eventually cost him his job. Two maps appeared from his labours, a large four sheet map of the city in 1857 and another large map of the whole District in 1861, (the present example). The map is amazingly detailed. Drawn on a scale of four inches to a mile, it was by far the most accurate map of Washington yet produced. It documented the location of all buildings, both private and public. Each structure was drawn from actual tape-line measurements that had been made in the field. The roads were measured by two parties, one with transit and chain, the other with a level. On the outskirts of the city roads, rivers, creeks, farm and wooded lands along with property lines with owners names are given; as well as contour lines. The map was drawn and engraved in the style of the charts issued by the U.S. Coast and Geodetic Survey. This map "was engraved upon copper by Mr. David McClelland, and was just about to be published—indeed, a few copies or proofs had been printed—when, the war breaking out, the Government seized the map and plates." (Baker) This was done for two reasons, because the Union did not have a good map of the region and so that it would not be obtained and used by Confederate forces. "At the outbreak of the war the United States had no topographic map of the District, the only topographic map existing being the manuscript produced by Boschke. He sold his interest in it to Messrs. Blagden. Sweeney and McClelland. Mr. McClelland is an engraver, now seventy four years old, living in Le Droit Park. He engraved the Boschke map, which was executed on two plates. With his partners, he agreed to sell the manuscript and plates to the Government for $20,000". "Secretary of War Stanton, not apparently understanding the labour and expense of a topographic map, thought that $500 was a large sum. There was, therefore, a disagreement as to price. After some negotiations, Mr. McClelland and his partners offered all the material, copper-plates and manuscript, to the Government for $4,000, on condition that the plates, with the copyright, should be returned to them at the close of the war. This offer also was refused. There then appeared at Mr. McClelland's house in Le Droit Park a lieutenant, with a squad of soldiers and an order from the Secretary of War to seize all the material relating to this map. Mr. McClelland accordingly loaded all the material into his own wagon and, escorted by a file of soldiers on either side, drove to the War Department and left the material. While the war was still in progress, after further conference, Secretary Stanton agreed to refer the question of payment for this property to the Committee on War Claims. That committee recommended a payment of $8,500, and the owners, regarding this amount in cash as worth more than future uncertainties, decided to accept it. Thus all the material became Government property at a cost of $8,500, and the plates, two in number, are now in possession of the War Department." Due to the suppression of the map during the Civil War, the map is now exceedingly rare: we are only able to trace six institutional examples: Pennsylvania State Library; University of Chicago Library; University of Wisconsin; Library of Congress; UC Berkley Library; and University of California.

Octavo (169 × 109 mm). Bound in contemporary diced calf, red morocco label to spine lettered gilt, gilt raised bands to spine, blind tools to spine, brown endpapers, all edges red. Colour frontispiece, engraved colour title-page, 12 illustrated colour plates. Black and white illustrations to text throughout. Bookseller's ticket to rear pastedown. Tips skilfully refurbished, small bump to front cover, hinges repaired, odd spot of foxing to contents. An excellent copy, attractively bound. First edition, first issue (with "Bouverie St" on the illustrated title page), of the domestic bible of the Victorian age. It was the first book to supplant the household culinary authority, Hannah Glasse's Art of Cookery, which had remained so for over a century since its first publication in 1747. In its first year of publication Beeton's Book of Household Management sold 60,000 copies, and two million by 1868. Despite its author's death four years after publication (at the age of only 28, a fact which must snuff out any sense of Beeton's passionate, energetic book as being the product of middle-aged housewifery), the book has been constantly updated and its popularity has lived on to the present day. As well as comprising over 900 pages of recipes (which are illustrated, for the first time in this genre of book production, with colour plates), Beeton's boldly comprehensive text also contains guidance on home economics and general home life (including an interesting rundown of the laws the of the land), and even some more philosophical passages on the ethical role of women in the world of the Victorian male; "For Mrs Beeton, a people's 'way of taking their meals, as well as their way of treating women' were marks of civilisation. Dining well 'implies both the will and the skill to reduce to order, and surround with idealisms and grace, the more material conditions of human existence'" (ODNB).

        Ontwerp IJ-dok voor Amsterdam, 1861.

      ?Ontwerp tot uitbreiding van Amsterdam langs het Noordzee-Kanaal. Gezigt van het Schellingwoude op de brug over het nieuwe Y-dok?. Steendruk vervaardigd ca. 1861 door Van Harms & Co. naar een tekening van H. van Bruggen. Later met de hand gekleurd. Afm. 14,7 x 55,5 cm.Na de val van Napoleon was de Nederlandse economie in een slechte staat. Het gebrek aan goede water- en wegverbindingen was hier mede debet aan. De toegang over zee tot Amsterdam was onbruikbaar geworden voor grote zeeschepen door dichtslibben van de doorvaart langs Pampus en het IJ. Tussen 1817-1824 werd het Groot Noordhollandsch Kanaal aangelegd, een waterweg van Amsterdam naar Den Helder. Al na een paar decennia bleek dat het te klein was voor de steeds groter wordende zeeschepen. Er wordt daarop begin gemaakt met het Noordzeekanaal.We zien op de prent de door ingenieur A. Hu?t geplande uitbreiding van Amsterdam in het IJ, een imposante aanplemping met een nieuwe dijk. Deze IJ-dijk zou de nieuwe zuidoever van het Noordzeekanaal moeten vormen. Bij realisering zou het IJ nog ongeveer eenderde van zijn oorspronkelijke breedte overgehouden hebben en zou een imposant IJ-dok ontstaan. Ook zou er een dijk komen van de Stadsrietlanden naar Schellingwoude waarin de Oranje Sluizen gebouwd zouden worden, een extra sluizencomplex ter hoogte van de Berebijt in de Amstel en een nieuwe spoorbaan van Sloterdijk naar de Amstel.Prijs: ?625,-.

( Mappen und Tafeln in frischen Farben, Kellergeruch, Tafeln in gutem Zustand) Nachweise zu Müller-Kaempff bei Thieme/Becker, Bd.25, S.245. [ [Paul Müller-Kaempff (* 16. Oktober 1861 in Oldenburg 5. Dezember 1941 in Berlin) war ein deutscher Maler, Zeichner und Lithograf. Seine Ausbildung erhielt er zunächst als Schüler der Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, 18831886 der Akademie Karlsruhe bei Gustav Schönleber (18511917) und 18861888 der Berliner Akademie im Meisteratelier bei Hans Fredrik Gude (18251903). Der Name Paul Müller-Kaempff steht in erster Linie für das Entstehen der Künstlerkolonie Ahrenshoop auf dem Darß. Anlässlich eines Fischland-Aufenthalts mit seinem Freund Oskar Frenzel (18551915) im Jahr 1889 hatten sie das abgelegene Fischerdorf entdeckt. Er baute sich dort 1892 ein eigenes Haus und begann 1894 mit der Malschule St. Lucas. Künstlerkollegen folgten seinem Beispiel, so wurde Ahrenshoop auch zur Heimat von Anna Gerresheim (18521921), Elisabeth von Eicken (18621940), Friedrich Wachenhusen (18591925), Fritz Grebe (18501924), Heinrich Schlotermann (18591922), Theobald Schorn (18661913) und Hugo Richter-Lefensdorf (18541904). 1909 war er maßgeblich am Bau des Ahrenshooper Kunstkatens beteiligt. Zu seiner Oldenburger Heimat hielt er in dieser Zeit stets Verbindung. 1904 wurden Müller-Kaempff und seine spätere Frau (1905) und vormalige Schülerin Else Schwager Mitbegründer des Oldenburger Kunstvereins (Oldenburg in Oldenburg), 1905 erhielt er die Oldenburgische Staatsmedaille und 1907 war er Mitbegründer der Vereinigung nordwestdeutscher Künstler. 1906 wurde er zum Professor ernannt. Er lebte ab 1908 auch in Hamburg und war Mitglied des Hamburger Künstlervereins von 1832. Müller-Kaempff war als Landschaftsmaler sehr erfolgreich und zählte Ende des 19. Jahrhunderts zu den fortschrittlichsten und bekanntesten Landschaftsmalern seiner Zeit. Neben Gemälden, Aquarellen, Pastellen und Zeichnungen sind von ihm auch Entwürfe für Möbel überliefert und eine Vielzahl von Postkarten bekannt geworden. Des Weiteren fertigte er Lithografien für Heimatmappen an und illustrierte Bücher (u. a. Naumann: Naturgeschichte der Vögel Mitteleuropas, 1905). Bilder wurden zu seinen Lebzeiten nicht nur von Museen in Rostock, Oldenburg i.O., Kiel und Hamburg gekauft, auch viele Privatsammler erstanden seine Bilder. Prinz Eitel Friedrich, der zweite Sohn von Kaiser Wilhelm II., erwarb 1908 mehrere Werke für den kaiserlichen Hof.

Réunion de trois travaux fondateurs de Paul Broca sur le langage, extraits des Bulletins de la Société anatomique de Paris et des Bulletins de la Société d'anthropologie ; ÉDITIONS ORIGINALES de ces tirés à part, remis en vente et placés sous une couverture de relais à l'adresse de Victor Masson, 1865. 1861 : Sur le siège de la faculté du langage articulé avec deux observations d'aphémie. 1863 : Remarques sur le siège, le diagnostique et la nature de l'aphémie. 1865 : Du siège de la faculté de langage articulé dans l'hémisphère gauche du cerveau. Broca n'est pas le premier à assigner aux lobes frontaux le siège du langage articulé, puisque c'est Bouillaud qui en formula l'idée dès 1825, suivi d'Auburtin ; ces démonstrations ne furent pas suivies à l'époque. Broca joua pour sa part un rôle essentiel dans la vérification de ces théories. À l'automne 1861, il présenta à la Société d'anthropologie un aphasique, Leborgne dit "Tan", ainsi surnommé car il ne savait articuler d'autre son que celui-ci. Broca parvint à prouver que son cerveau présentait des lésions au niveau de la partie inférieure de la troisième circonvolution frontale de l'hémisphère gauche. Il publie ses premiers résultats de recherche en 1861, dans le Bulletin de la société Anatomique de Paris (2e série, tome VI, août 1861), "Sur le siège de la faculté du langage articulé" ; cette découverte permit depuis de nommer cette zone du cortex cérébral "circonvolution de Broca" et, surtout, de la désigner comme siège du langage articulé.

        Considerations on Representative Government.

      London: Parker, 1861. First edition of Mill's classic treatise on representative government. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by John Stuart Mill on the half-title page as was the custom with 19th century writers and earlier, "From the Author." From the library of Sir George Otto Trevelyan, 2nd Baronet (1838-1928), with his signature. Trevelyan was a British statesman and author. In a ministerial career stretching almost 30 years, he was most notably twice Secretary for Scotland under William Ewart Gladstone and the Earl of Rosebery. He broke with Gladstone over the 1886 Irish Home Rule Bill, but after modifications were made to the bill he re-joined the Liberal Party shortly afterwards. Also a writer and historian, Trevelyan published The Life and Letters of Lord Macaulay, his maternal uncle, in 1876. In very good condition with some toning to the cloth and overall light wear. In Considerations on Representative Government, Mill argues for representative government, the ideal form of government in his opinion. One of the more notable ideas Mill puts forth in the book is that the business of government representatives is not to make legislation. Instead Mill suggests that representative bodies such as parliaments and senates are best suited to be places of public debate on the various opinions held by the population and to act as watchdogs of the professionals who create and administer laws and policy. Mill writes, "Their part is to indicate wants, to be an organ for popular demands, and a place of adverse discussion for all opinions relating to public matters, both great and small; and, along with this, to check by criticism, and eventually by withdrawing their support, those high public officers who really conduct the public business, or who appoint those by whom it is conducted."

        Phaethornis Intermedius, Plate 30 (Middle-sized Hermit)

      London 1861 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. Of all his works, many of Gould’s best-known images come from this beautiful and comprehensive “Monograph of the Trochilidae, or Family of Hummingbirds”. One of his largest productions, the Hummingbirds was also the most painstaking, meticulously detailed project that the ornithologist attempted. In order to create accurate representations of the tiny, delicately beautiful birds, Gould invented a new method of coloring, using metallic pigments to reproduce the iridescence of their plumage. Most images also show at least one subject in flight to further accentuate the coloring of their feathers. All of the hummingbirds are drawn to scale and are anatomically correct to the smallest detail, their brilliant coloring highlighted with gold and transparent luster. Most of the subjects in the book were taken from Gould’s personal collection of hummingbird specimens. This magnificently hand-colored lithograph, Phaethornis Intermedius, Plate 30, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in mint condition. These hummingbirds, also known as Middle-sized Hermit's, are colored with richly patterned brown undersides, and lush green backs, with orange accents around their faces and white tail-tips. Precise lines define and detail each feather, giving these hummingbirds dimension. Their opposite positioning allows for the front and back of their bodies and coloring to be appreciated. They rest on thin stems, further emphasizing their size and delicacy.

Scattered light spotting and toning. Very Good. Other than copying this fire-breathing 'Essay' word for word, we have been unable independently to attribute authorship, or to learn anything about Jon Rice, except that such a person in Pacolet, South Carolina, did exist at the relevant time; and that he wrote several articles which state that he studied medicine and dentistry. The Essay certainly expresses the defiant, angry state of affairs in South Carolina in early 1861.

        [GOLD RUSH] Gold diggers' log hut

      Circa 1861.Stereoscopic albumen print photograph (72 x 72 mm each image) on original pale yellow card mount (85 x 172 mm), fine condition with rich tones and excellent detail, verso with contemporary inscription in ink: Gold Diggers Log Hut, no photographer's imprint. This very early Victorian goldfields photograph by John H. Jones was part of a series of 120 stereoviews titledJones's Photographs of Australian Sceneries,published in 1862. As well as capturing goldmining scenes in various locations on the central Victorian goldfields, in an arc between Ballarat, Creswick, Clunes, Maldon and Castlemaine, Jones' photographs documented the early stages of development of townships along the newly constructed railway line to the northwest of Melbourne, which by 1862 extended as far as Sandhurst (Bendigo). The series also included several views of Melbourne, Geelong and the Bellarine Peninsula, towns in northern Victoria (Echuca, Beechworth and Wangaratta) and on the far side of the Murray River in New South Wales (Deniliquin and Hay). Another example of this stereoview, on a mount imprinted Jones's Photographs of Australian Sceneries, is held in the collection of the Bendigo Art Gallery, and is reproduced in the exhibition catalogueHer Majesty's territories : stereographic views of Australian sceneries (Bendigo Art Gallery, 2013, p.15)

        Relics of Sir John Franklin's Expedition, recently brought home by Captn. McClintock R.N.

      Sent here by the Lords Commissioners of the Admiralty. [Title from ms. label in image] [London : s.n., c.1861]. Stereographic albumen print photograph, each image approximately 74 x 65 mm (irregular), on pale yellow card mount; verso blank; the albumen prints are in fine condition and the mount is free from foxing. In 1861, with the blessing of Lady Jane Franklin, Lieutenant John Powles Cheyne produced a set of fourteen stereoview photographs of the Franklin Expedition relics which had been brought back from the Arctic by Sir Leopold McClintock. Only a small number of these sets were made, and they were sold in a presentation box accompanied by a booklet titledDescriptive catalogue of fourteen stereoscopic slides of the relics of Sir John Franklin's expedition : brought home in the "Fox" by Captain M'Clintock, in September, 1859 / photographed and published by Lieut. Cheyne, R.N., at the United Service, Whitehall, by permission of the Council of that institution (Ferguson, 9732). The stereoview we offer here is no. 8 in Cheyne's series. It was sourced with a group of early Tasmanian stereoviews by Clifford, Cawston, Beattie and other photographers. The connection of this stereoview with Tasmania is readily apparent (Sir John Franklin was Governor of Tasmania between 1837 and 1843).Another example is held in the W.L. Crowther Library, State Library of Tasmania. We are grateful to Ian Morrison, Senior Librarian, Heritage Collections, Tasmanian Archive & Heritage Office, for his assistance in identifying the Cheyne sequence number.

        On the Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life [Unrecorded Variant Title Page]

      London: John Murray [through 1861], 1859. Early Reprint. Third Edition (seventh thousand) of the "most influential scientific work of the nineteenth century" (Grolier 100 Science) and "certainly the most important biological book ever written." (Freeman) 8vo: xix,[1],538pp (including unrecorded variant title page), with single leaf of advertisements and folding lithographed diagram by William West, charting Darwin's views of possible sequences of evolution. Original green sand-grain cloth, spine lettered in gilt, covers with decorative panels blocked in blind, brown clay-coated end papers, edges untrimmed. Variant "b" binding (without full point after "MURRAY" on the spine). An excellent example of this rare issue, recased in the original cloth binding (not rebacked), with spine ends skillfully restored and crease to spine carefully repaired, now barely visible. Minor wear to cloth, corners bumped, original endpapers rehinged with matching vintage paper. Manuscript ex-libris on title page of "John Hitchman M.D." (1815-1893), English physician and superintendent of Mickleover Asylum (later Pastures Hospital) near Derby, where this copy was purchased (bookseller's ticket on front paste-down of J. A. Rowbottom). On page [x] a previous owner (perhaps Hitchman) has written notes on Darwin's death and estate, erroneously naming the author "Charles Erasmus Darwin" (Darwin's middle name was Robert). Minor foxing spots and occasional marks, very slight age toning, no ink marks or notes in text pages but the stray pencil mark and margin note. Regarding the title page, all recorded copies have the year printed beginning with a distorted number "1," while our copy has the number fully intact, raising the possibly that the title page was reset to correct this minor problem. It also suggests there may exist other alterations in the text that close comparison could reveal. Regardless, this issue is rare. Freeman 381. For comments on the Origin's inestimable significance, see: PMM 344b. Dibner 199. Garrison–Morton 220. Horblit 23b. Norman 593. Grolier 100 Science 23b. Grolier 100 Medicine 70b. The third edition appeared in April,1861, in a run of just 2,000 copies (the second edition print run was 5,000), only 17 months after Darwin had received his advance copy of the first edition. The binding nearly matches that of the two previous editions, differing only in minor details. But the text was extensively altered, so much so that a table of differences between it and the second edition (a table that was updated for each subsequent edition) was added. Darwin also added the full historical sketch, written to satisfy complaints that he had not sufficiently credited his predecessors in presenting the general theory of evolution. (The sketch had already appeared in shorter form in the first German edition and in the fourth American printing (both 1860), in which it is called a preface. There also appears for the first time a postscript, on page xii. "Darwin not only drew an entirely new picture of the workings of organic nature; he revolutionized our methods of thinking and our outlook on the natural order of things. The recognition that constant change is the order of the universe had been finally established and a vast step forward in the uniformity of nature had been taken." (PMM). N.B.: With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition, carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed.
