      [colophon: Guatemala: Tipografia y litografia del "Noticioso Folio (33 cm; 13"). [2] pp, with integral blank leaf.. 1862] One of the editors of the opposition (i.e., anti-Carrera) newspaper proposes to establish a school for educating young Guatemalan children. To be admitted whether they are ignorant of the basics of reading, writing, and arithmetic or not, they will be classed into three groups, ranging from the most ignorant beginners to those truly in command of the "Three Rs." Once in command of those essentials, they will commence on a four-year course of instruction that will include logic, grammar, philology, religion and morals, basic Latin, history, and geography and end with physics, chemistry, zoology, geometry, algebra, and English. There will also be instruction in gymnastics, drawing, and music. The prospectus includes the names of the instructors, information about examinations, and specifics of costs. => Prospectuses for schools in 19th-century Latin America are rare. Searches of NUC, WorldCat, COPAC, CICLA, and Metabase locate absolutely no copies. Never bound; as issued. Faint waterstaining in upper margin, corners bumped slightly; a very good copy.

        Idylls of the King

      London: Edward Moxon, 1862 . Later printing. Inscribed by Tennyson on the half-title: "E.L. Lushington / from / Tennyson". Finely bound in full maroon morocco by Carss and Co., with five raised bands to the spine, lettered in gilt, spine compartments decorated in gilt, boards ruled in gilt, all edges gilt, gilt turn-ins, red marbled endpapers, navy ribbon bookmark. Near fine, with some light toning to the spine, minor rubbing to the extremities, a few faint spots to the endpapers, otherwise bright and clean pages. A lovely copy, inscribed by Tennyson. Tennyson inscribed this copy of Idylls of the King to his friend and brother in-law Edmund Law Lushington. The two men met as students while attending Cambridge University, and their adult friendship was only strengthened when Lushington married Tennyson's younger sister Cecilia. Notably, Tennyson commemorated Edmund and Cecilia's marriage in the epilogue to his poem In Memoriam (1850). Interestingly, Lushington encouraged Tennyson to substitute the term "epylls" for "idylls" because he considered its contents to be "little Epics (not Idylls) woven into an Epical unity" (Idylls of the King, edited by Halam, Lord Tennyson). Idylls of the King is a collection of four blank verse narrative poems relating to the mythological adventures of King Arthur. It marks the beginning of Tennyson's series The Idylls of the King, a series of twelve poems published 1859-1885. This volume includes four idylls relating to themes of marriage, chivalry, and love: "Enid," "Vivien," "Elaine," and "Guinevere." The first three poems were later edited and renamed to "Geraint and Enid," "The Marriage of Geraint," "Merlin and Vivien," and "Lancelot and Elaine." In the larger series, these poems comprise the 4th, 6th, 7th, and 11th idylls. Published at the height of British Imperialism, the story of King Arthur, whose primary quest was civilizing England, was especially moving as England considered its colonization of various nations to be a similarly progressive effort.. Inscribed by Author. Hard Cover. Near Fine.

        Temple Bar

      67 - London - Office of Temple Bar and Richard Bentley 1862 - A nine-volume set of Temple Bar, in attractive half-calf bindings with gilt detailing and marbled boards. Temple Bar was a London journal, issued monthly with a cover price ofone shillingand was originally not illustrated. The journal was launched in December 1860 by John Maxwell with the bohemian author George Sala as its editor. The contents were miscellaneous, with a strong emphasis on serialised fiction. Editorship later passed to George Bentley and enjoyed a long period of prosperous stability. Contributors under the Bentley regime were Wilkie Collins, Henry Kingsley, George Gissing, R L Stevenson and Anthony Trollope. It also carried high quality women's fiction from Mrs Henry Wood and Rhoda Broughton. Sala, a noted follower of Charles Dickens and journalist at several of the author's magazines, would release the magazine shortly after the first publication of William Makepeace Thackeray's Cornhill Magazine, with which it would become something of a rival, in keeping with the rivalry between Thackeray and Dickens himself. It would run until 1906, with its high-point of circulation reaching around 13000 per month. A excellent example of serialised Victorian fiction, before the format's popularity waned with the onset of silent film in the early Twentieth Century. Contains the bookbinders' label of B. Hunt and Sons of Birmingham, as well asCondition: In decorative half-calf bindings with gilt detailing and paper-covered boards. Externally quite smart, there is some minor wear to the boards, extremities, joints and backstrip, with some minor strain to some hinges. Internally, the pages are generally firmly bound, with some strain in areas and some partially detached pages to volume fourteen, and are generally bright and clean, although there are instances of spotting in areas and light foxing to endpages. There is also a bookplate to one volume. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Uranium radiation and the electrical conduction produced by it" (Rutherford) WITH "On the Transmission of Light through an Atmosphere containing Small Particles in Suspension, and on the Origin of the Blue of the Sky" (Lord Rayleigh) WITH "The Age of the Earth as an Abode Fitted for Life" (Lord Kelvin) in The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science 47, January-June 1899, pp. 109-163; pp. 375-384; pp. 66-90

      - HANDSOMELY BOUND FIRST EDITION WITH THREE IMPORTANT PAPERS. IIn the first paper, "Ernest Rutherford demonstrated that the radiation from uranium and thorium is not the same as X-rays, and consists of at least two distinct types of particles. He called the first particle "the radiation" and later in the paper "alpha radiation," and found it to be highly effective in ionization but easily absorbed by gases. He found the other radiation (which he called "beta radiation") to be less effective in ionization but far more penetrating" (Wenner Collection). IIn the second paper, Lord Rayleigh explains why the sky is blue. Rayleigh Scattering, as it is now referred to, causes the blue hue of the daytime sky and the reddening of the sun at sunset. Rayleigh discovered that "The blue color of the sky is caused by the scattering of sunlight off the molecules of the atmosphere? The strong wavelength dependence of Rayleigh's discovery enhances the short wavelengths, thus giving us the blue sky. In other words, Rayleigh scattering is more effective at short wavelengths (the blue end of the visible spectrum). Therefore the light scattered down to the earth at a large angle with respect to the direction of the sun's light is predominantly in the blue end of the spectrum" (Nave, Hyperphysics). In the third paper, Lord Kelvin describes the age of the earth. Beginning in 1862, Kelvin published periodic calculations fixing the age of Earth between 20 and 400 million years. His 1899 estimate "was obtained by computing the time for the earth to cool by conduction from a supposedly molten state to its present condition of low surface heat flow. Kelvin originally believed that the only major question in this method was the value of the initial temperature, the 'initial event' being dated? Recently the mechanism of heat transfer within the earth has been shown to be much more complex than the simple conductive type envisaged by Kelvin" (Burchfield, The Age of the Earth). While Kelvin's methodology proved erroneous, "[his] application of thermodynamic laws to the question of the earth's age and the heated debate his ideas sparked among British Victorian physicists, astronomers, geologists, and biologists" (ibid). CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Taylor & Francis. (8.5 x 5.5 inches; 213 x 138mm). Complete. [2], viii, [580], 4. Three plates and in-text illustrations throughout. Not ex-libris. Handsomely, solidly, and tightly rebound in three quarter brown calf over marbled paper boards. Five gilt-ruled raised bands at the spine; gilt armorial devices in the compartments. Gilt-lettered red and black morocco spine labels. Red area at the head of p. 109 (Rutherford paper); otherwise bright and clean. Near fine condition.

        JANESVILLE DAILY GAZETTE. FRIDAY, 10 A.M., JULY 4, 1862. EXTRA. LATE NEWS FROM THE ARMY BEFOEE [sic] RICHMOND. A TERRIFIC BATTLE ON MONDAY! LOSS VERY GREAT ON BOTH SIDES. THE ENEMY REPULSED! SHIELD'S ARMY HAS ARRIVED. POSITION OF OUR ARMY IMPROVED. SIX DAYS FIGHTING. OUR WHOLE LOSS 15,000 TO 20,000!

      Janesville [Wi.], 1862. Light wear and foxing. Very good. An unrecorded Civil War broadside publicizing a dispatch from Union general George B. McClellan following The Seven Days' Battles, which occurred between June 26 and July 2, 1862. In the course of that week Union and Confederate forces fought a series of battles in five different locales. At the end of these engagements the Confederates withdrew to Richmond. This EXTRA provides information about losses and casualties, and states: "Gen. McClellan and his big staff all agree that the position of our army is far more advantageous as a base of operations against Richmond than that hitherto occupied." Although most of the battles in the Seven Days can be considered Union victories, the overall outcome of the campaign was still not particularly successful for the Union, due to McClellan's weaknesses as a commander in the field. Afterwards, the Union's Peninsular Campaign was abandoned and the majority of McClellan's men were transferred to John Pope's army in Northern Virginia.

        On the Absorption and Radiation of Heat by Gases and Vapours, and on the Physical Connexion of Radiation, Absorption and Conduction" (Tyndall, pp. 1-36) WITH "On the Construction of Specula of Six-Feet Aperture; and a Selection from the Observations of Nebulae Made with Them" (Parsons, pp. 681-745) in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of for the Year 1861, London 151, 1862

      - COMPLETE, FULL VOLUME FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST QUANTIFICATION AND DEMONSTRATION THAT ATMOSPHERIC GASES ARE INFRARED EMITTERS, in other words, that they emit heat. What Tyndall discovered is considered "the first accurate account of how the atmosphere functions" (Kolbert, Field Notes from a Catastrophe: Man, Nature, and Climate Change, 35). Prior to Tyndall, many believed that something like what we now call the Greenhouse Effect existed, but in this paper Tyndall was the first to demonstrate, quantify, and thus prove it. The original plate depicting Tyndall's equipment is also present, along with 35 other copperplate engravings.John Tyndall was a prominent 19th century British physicist and he was also a mountaineer. "While climbing in the Alps, Tyndall studied glaciers. In the process, he became convinced that tens of thousands of years ago, all of northern Europe was covered by ice. For this theory to be true, Tyndall was forced to explain how the climate could warm dramatically enough to make so much ice disappear. Tyndall set up laboratory experiments to measure the amount of heat absorbed by various greenhouse gases and was the first scientist to measure the greenhouse effect" (Nuccitelli, Climatology Versus Pseudoscience), 3). Toward this end "in 1852, Tyndall developed the first "ratio spectrophotometer" (a long gas-filled tube with a thermopile) and used it to test the heat absorption of gases (Wenner Collection). The instrument used thermopile technology and its invention alone is considered seminal in the study of the history of the spectrographic study of the absorption of gases. Tyndall believed that he could explain heat within the Earth's atmosphere by using his spectrophotometer to study the capacities of some atmospheric gases to absorb radiant heat (also known as infared absorption). Tyndall's first report on the absorption of radiant energy by gases was reported to the Royal Society in 1859. In that paper, Tyndall wrote: "Different gases are thus shown to intercept radiant heat in different degrees" (Tyndall, 1859). What he did not do, however, was provide evidence - specifically, quantitative results and the names of the individual gases he was investigating. In the paper offered here, Tyndall presented his evidence. His quantitative analyses indicated that CO2, water vapor, and hydrocarbon gases, such as methane, were extremely efficient absorbers of radiant energy (this as compared with the oxygen and nitrogen that make up the bulk of the atmosphere). Tyndall showed that the emissive powers of the tested gases demonstrated a rank order that was the same as the absorptive powers of the given gases. Significantly, Tyndall further demonstrated that these gases re-emit heat. "Tyndall was quick to appreciate the implications of his discovery: the selectively transparent gases, he declared, were largely responsible for determining the planet's climate. He likened their impact to that of a dam built across a river: just as a dam 'causes a local deepening of the stream, so our atmosphere, thrown as a barrier across the terrestrial rays, produces a local heightening of the temperature at the earth's surface'" (Kolbert, 36; Tyndall, 1861). Tyndall concluded that water vapor absorbed the most radiant heat and is therefore the principal gas controlling air temperature (ibid). ALSO INCLUDED IN THIS VOLUME: William Parsons, 3rd Earl of Rosse: "On the Construction of Specula of Six-Feet Aperture; and a Selection from the Observations of Nebulae Made with The", pp. 681-745. The original plans for Rosse's reflecting telescope were lost to history and this paper represents the most detailed information on its construction. With this telescope he discovered the spiral nature of some of the galaxies, and published the first illustrations of spiral nebulae; for seventy years it remained the largest telescope in the world.

        Abraham Lincoln

      Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co. Manuscript First Edition. Hardcover; three-quarter maroon crushed levant binding with gilt paneled spine. Fine. FIRST MANUSCRIPT EDITION IN DELUXE PUBLISHER'S BINDINGS, number 659 on only 1000 copies; with original leaf of Beveridge's manuscript bound in volume I (as issued). Born in rural Ohio in 1862, Albert J. Beveridge, an up-and-coming lawyer, shocked the Indiana Republican establishment with his election into the United States Senate. After losing the reelection in 1910, Beveridge joined former president Theodore Roosevelt in launching the Progressive Party, yet after the party's collapse chose to channel his energies into historical scholarship. Following the success of his two volume biography of Chief Justice John Marshall, Beveridge sought to demythologize Lincoln in his four volume biography, questioning the largely inaccurate accounts of Lincoln's early life which preceded his and trusting no source without verifying it for himself. The result is an incredibly well-researched and historically valuable account of the years proceeding Lincoln's presidency. Finely illustrated and complete with gravure frontispieces in each volume (32 plates total) and four additional hand-colored frontispieces of the Lincoln Memorial. Boston: Houghton Mifflin Co., 1928. Octavo, original three-quarter maroon crushed levant with gilt paneled spine and red silk ribbon bookmark. A hint of fading to upper half of Vol. IV board; otherwise fine. An exceptional set.

        YOKOHAMA KAIKO KENBUNSHI: RECORD OF SIGHTS AND SOUNDS OF THE OPENING OF YOKOHAMA

      [Yokohama 1862]. Blue blind-stamped stitched wrs.,very good,. covers oxidized, contents very clean, a bit of old worming. on a few pages, else nice, clean, 3 vol. set:19+21+31 double. folded leaves, 17.5 x 24.5 cm. R A R E FIRST & ONLY EDITION. A BRILLIANT EARLY STUDY OF FOREIGNERS IN YOKOHAMA, 1862 This is a fabulous look at the first foreign visitors to Yokohama. The lively activities of the American, British, Chinese are recorded in much detail by Sadahide who was one a very few keen observers of foreigners in Yokohama. He produced some of the best and most memorable views of Yokohama both in terms of maps, "Bird's Eye" maps, prints and books and portraits of foreigners and their way of life. His solid contribution to how foreigners looked to Japanese is typical and a valuable historical insight to the quickly changing times in Japan, when all things foreign were respected and studied under the microscope. * This set of books reflects the keen insights Sadahide made on all things foreign. Their ships, Indonesian & Chinese servants, horses, customs, dress, activities, food, way of life and the whole genre. * Excellent examples of lots of Americans, cigar smoking men, riding horses, American women in elaborate dresses, pool playing, and just cavorting drunk ! * The 3 volumes are profusely illustrated with 2 large folding plates in the beginning of volume 1 which shows the whole port of Yokohama and its bund. In all, there are 174 full single page illustrations, plus the two large folding double-page illustrations. There is a colored frontis at the beginning of volume 1. This shows a composite of foreign flags with the author's [artist] name & book title superimposed over the flags. Text in Japanese. * The work was issued in two parts, volumes 1-3 in 1862, parts 3-6 1865, but they are seldom found complete with all six volumes together. * THE ARTIST: Hashimoto Gyokuransai, or better known commonly as Sadahide and Gountei [1807-1873]. He was first known as Utagawa, and also used several other Go [studio names]. He was the star pupil of Kunisada, prolific printmaker and illustrator, and was fascinated with Westerners and drawing them at Yokohama. He did many Yokohama prints, as well as "Bird's Eye" views of Yokohama, Black Ships, and other places throughout Japan. He was among eleven Japanese artists who exhibited at the Paris Exposition in 1866, for which he received the Legion d'Honneur for his stunning and unique color woodblock prints. He is often referred to as being the leading member of the "Yokohama School." He is well collected by world museums. He exhibits a unique charm in capturing the essence and flavor of his subjects. See Roberts below for more details. * CARVER: The inside of the front cover shows the carver as Nakamura. CONDITION: The blind-stamped covers are all original and a bit oxidized which is usual for a book of this age. The books are solidly string bound, and stable. The contents of each volume are remarkable clean internally. Each is tight, solid, and without any worming whatsoever. Each page is nicely printed with sharp and clear woodblock printed images. An early pull of the blocks which likely yielded about 200 copies. There is some of the usual "thumbing" in the corners that has some minor discoloring, again usual. The indigo-blue Chitsu folding case has some wear on the edgees, some cracks in the hinges [mended], one edge faded, else solid. By and large, this is a sharp and nice copy of a very rare book. *** BIBLIOGRAPHY: H.

        History of Greece

      1862 - (GREECE) GROTE, George. A History of Greece; from the Earliest Period to the Close of the Generation Contemporary with Alexander the Great. London: John Murray, 1862, 1873. Ten volumes. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter tan calf, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, green and burgundy morocco spine labels, marbled boards and endpapers, top edges gilt. $2800.Early edition of Grote’s celebrated history of Greece, illustrated with three frontispiece portraits, a large folding map of Greece, and with 12 engraved maps and plans (eight folding), handsomely bound by Riviere & Son.A banker, member of Parliament, staunch social reformer and one of the founders of the University of London, Grote was among the first to attempt to write a comprehensive work on Greece's political and intellectual heritage. His History extends from the mythical beginnings of Greek culture and legend to the reign of Alexander the Great. "The work of a master… The political lessons and ethical judgments so characteristic of the [History] render it the most instructive of histories" (DNB). Grote "incontestably won for himself the title not merely of a historian, but of the historian of Greece" (Allibone I:747). Grote's History "is notable for its accurate geographical details, for the spirit and vigor of its passages descriptive of martial exploits, and, above all, for its obvious purpose of showing the elevating and inspiring influence of freedom upon human activity… Each chapter is, in a way, a monograph in itself, and the work as a whole is one of the greatest masterpieces of historical research that have ever been put forth" (Peck, 753). Some folding maps heightened in color by hand. First published in 12 volumes in 1846-56. With the first edition of Grote's Minor Works and second edition of The Personal Life of George Grote (both 1873). Bookplates of New York financier Harris C. Fahnestock, a founder of the First National Bank of New York (later Citibank).Tape reinforcements to verso of folding map in Volume VII. Loss to lower corner of pages 9-10 in Minor Works. Light rubbing to spine ends and edges of bindings; a few volumes with expert joint repairs. A handsome near-fine set. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Afin de faire un point sur les divers jugements des bibliographes : Alors que Vicaire signale que l'édition française est la véritable originale, Clouzot affirmant que les deux sont originales, on doit préciser que l'édition belge est parue deux jours avant, mais la vérité ne tient pas à une histoire de date. Lacroix est l'éditeur de Hugo, Pagnerre n'en est que le dépositaire à Paris, ce qui explique la présence du nom de Lacroix derrière le faux-titre, conjointement à celui de Lacroix. On sait en outre que L'oeuvre devait paraître dans toutes les grandes capitales en même temps, ce qui arriva à quelques jours près.Pour la question des mentions, cela est vraisemblablement assez simple : pour des raisons commerciales de coût on a procédé à un seul tirage, certains avec des mentions, d'autres pas, afin de les distribuer au cours de l'année comme chaque fois, de nouvelles éditions. On comprend Clouzot disant qu'une édition sans mention est plus désirable, car elle parait avoir été antérieure, mais dans les faits, et pour vendre quand les pages sans mention avaient été épuisées on a vendu dans le désordre ces pages de titres avec mention ou non. Enfin, on sait que quelques exemplaires ont été tirés sur Hollande et que d'autres contiennent la fameuse suite de 20 gravures, dont notre exemplaire, dont on voit en outre que les quatre premiers volumes portent les mentions septième et huitième édition, et que les six derniers n'en comportent aucune. Il fallait certainement déboursé beaucoup plus d'argent et retenir son exemplaire pour obtenir les gravures, et cela n'a nullement empêché l'éditeur distributeur de concocter un exemplaire avec ce qu'il avait sous la main, d'où les différentes mentions sur les premiers volumes. Cette suite est réellement fort rare et c'est la première fois que nous la rencontrons. Pour finir, on affirmait autrefois que l'édition de Paris avait été censurée et qu'elle différait de l'édition belge ; on sait aujourd'hui qu'il n'en est rien, et que c'est Hugo qui a lui-même diffusé ces bruits ne pouvant croire qu'à Paris, certains passages ne seraient pas ôtés. Tampon sur les pages de titre : Bibliothèque communale de Créteil [AUTOMATIC ENGLISH TRANSLATION FOLLOWS] Edition originale française, illustrée de la très rare suite de 20 gravures sur acier par Neuville et Castelli sur papier fort. Pages de titres en rouge et noir. Beau tirage sur Velin Blanc. Demi chagrin noir d'époque. spine à nerfs janséniste. Dans l'ensemble, exemplaire très frais, mais quelques pages, notamment la première page de la préface du tome I avec des rousseurs. Rares pâles rousseurs éparses. Frottement à un nerf du tome VI. Grandes marges, l'exemplaire ayant été très peu rogné, preuve est qu'on trouve des feuillets un peu moins larges que les autres, notamment les gravures, le relieur ayant conservé le maximum de marges.

        The History of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire [8 Volume Set]

      John Murray, London 1862 - Octavo, Gilt lettered and decorated cover and spine. Outside edges marbled. Marbled endpapers. Old damp marks on covers. Internally complete and amazingly clean, except the title page of volume one which shows watermark and off-setting from the engraved plate. Illustrated with fold-out engraved maps, complete and as called for. Some in color. Complete in eight volumes, as issued. Octavo [8.75x5.75]. Bound in original full leather and signed by the renowned bindery of HAYDAY & Co. All eight volumes show tight bindings and strong hinges. Hinges and spine ends were repaired in part, all boards are fully and securely attached. 'The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire' encompasses a millennium and a half of history, covering not merely the Western Roman Empire from the days of the early emperors to its extinction in A.D. 476, but also the Eastern (Byzantine) Empire, which lasted for another thousand years until it was vanquished by the Turks in 1453. Spatially, the work covers three continents and ranges from the frozen wastes of Siberia to the cataracts of the Nile, from China and Mongolia to the Strait of Gibraltar. It even encompasses, within its asides, the New World of America and the antipodes of New Zealand. Out of the ashes of the Western Roman Empire were born the modern nations of Europe, while out of the belated fall of the Eastern Roman Empire came sparks which lit Europe' s beacon of humanism and science.

Nicolai, eigentlich eine geborene Dänin, begann ihre Karriere als Sängerin und traf mit Gottlieb Christian Kreutzberg anlässlich seiner Tournee in Russland zusammen. Kreutzberg engagierte die junge Schönheit und bildete sie zur Raubtier - Dompteuse aus. Die "junge Schwedin" wurde zum Kassenmagneten, beendete ihre Karriere aber bald, nachdem sie von einer Hyäne in den Arm gebissen wurde. - Hier sucht zuerst Charles Kreutzberg die Gunst des Publikums durch eine Nummer mit drei Löwen zu erringen, danach tritt die "Junge Schwedin" mit einem Zwerg - und danach Riesen - Elephanten auf.
