      P., Michel Lévy Frères 1862, - in-8, 318 pp., orné de 4 plans et cartes dépliants, dont un grand plan de Pékin, reliure demi-chagrin, dos à nerfs orné de filets dorés.

Il les mit en vente à Drouot en 1862, ce qui lui valut une mesure disciplinaire." (Brizay, Le sac du Palais d'Eté, p.472). Exemplaire sans rousseurs.

        The Breath of Life or mal-Respiration. and its effects upon enjoyments & life of man. (manu-graph).

      - London, Trubner 1862. Octavo publisher's printed boards (marked, rebacked); 75pp, illustrations by Catlin through the text. A used but thoroughly decent copy. First English and best edition; the New York edition of 1861 and the later editions (titled 'Shut Your Mouth and Save Your Life') are printed letterpress and don't have the charm of this lithographed facsimile of manuscript. Catlin's gift to the civilized world is simple to enunciate - sleep with your mouth shut. The theory and practice are little more complex but the benefits are astounding: no more premature death, death of children; no more idiots, lunatics, deaf, dumb, or hunchbacks. This "most important motto which human language can convey" was learned from example during his years of ethnographic labours among some 150 tribes of "wild people" in North and South America. He doesn't ignore, though, the evidence that the exemplary sanitary habits of these people gave them no protection against small-pox and whiskey.

        Illustrations of the Birds of California, Texas, Oregon, British and Russian America.

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, . Second edition. 1862 - Pp. viii, 298; 50 splendid hand-colored lithographic plates. Later one-half black morocco leather, spine with 5 raised bands, lettered in gilt on two compartments and decorated with gilt rectangular patterns highlighted with small feathers in the remaining 4 compartments, over green marbled boards with matching green marbled endpapers, lg 8vo (10.75 x 7.5 inches). This is the second edition of John Cassin's beautifully illustrated work on Western birds. The volume features 50 brilliant hand-colored lithographic plates, including many of species discovered after Audubon's Birds and intended to supplement that great work. "In the spring of 1845, John James Audubon, North America's most widely-celebrated naturalist and best-known painter of birds, met for the first and last time the inconspicuous academic who would eventually succeed him as the dean of American ornithologists - John Cassin" (Peck, I-3). "Probably no other ornithologist of his day had such a knowledge of the literature of the subject" (DAB). Cassin's Birds of California is among the most significant and earliest books "representative of the era of western expansion of American ornithology" (Ellis and Mengel). The work was originally published in ten parts between 1852 and 1855 and contains full-page plates and detailed descriptions of 50 species of birds "not given by former American authors." It also includes a "general synopsis of North American Ornithology," in which Cassin compares American birds with species from elsewhere around the world. "No American had ever offered such a comprehensive analysis" (Peck, I-7). The plates for Cassin were made from drawings by G.G. White and executed along the same lines as Audubon's, both the lithographer, William Hitchcock, and the printer, J.T. Bowen, having worked extensively on Audubon's Birds and on the Quadrupeds as well. This description was modified after a similar description used in the past by Bauman Rare Books. For bibliographic notes see also Anker 92, Zimmer, 124, Nissen 173 and Sabin 11369. Small bookplate on the front endpaper labeled: Ex KEK libris. No other ownership marks and no signs of use. A hint of soiling in the outer margins of two plates with no effect to the color images; a truly spectacular copy in fine condition in a fine binding.

        Cuadro descriptivo y comparativo de las lenguas ind?genas de M?xico. M?xico

      Mexico City: Imprenta de Andre Escalante, 1862 Volume 1 only. lii+395+[4] pages. Octavo (8 1/4" x 5 1/2") rebound in red leather with gilt lettering to spine. 1st edition.Pimentel's work on linguistic classification in Mexico, unlike that of Orozco y Berra, was as up to date as that of any of his North American contemporaries. The second edition of Pimentel (1874) had considerable influence on subsequent opinion concerning the classification of native languages in Mexico and Mesoamerica generally, and his work was heeded by Powell and other scholars in North America. Pimentel claimed to be "the first to present a scientific classification of Mexican Indian languages based on comparative philology". He proposed several families that were accurate (as well as a few that were not so accurate), including Uto-Aztecan with nine subgroup members; Costeno with Mutsun; Mixe with Zoque; Mixtec, Zapoteco. Pimentel was relatively successful in his attempt to establish family relationships. Interestingly, his methods were those standard in European linguistic studies; in particular, he emphasized grammatical evidence but also utilized basic vocabulary. Although Pimentel favored grammatical evidence, he rejected the generally held notion of the time, maintained by most scholars since Duponeau, that all American Indian languages share the same morphological type.Condition:Tape repair to half title, rebound and trimmed else a very good copy.

        Archaeopterix lithographica

      1862. Meyer, Hermann von (1801-69). Archaeopteryx lithographica aus dem lithographischen Schiefer von Solenhofen. Offprint or extract from an unidentified periodical [Jahrbuch für Mineralogie?], vol. 10 [1861?]: 53-56. Lithographed plate. Loose in paper wrappers, a bit chipped, title in ms. on front wrapper. Very good.First Edition, and very rare . This is the first copy we have handled in more than 40 years of trading. In 1861 von Meyer, one of the most distinguished 19th-century paleontologists, became the first to describe and name the prehistoric bird Archaeopterix lithographica, fossils of which had recently been discovered in the Jurassic limestone near Solenhofen in Bavaria. Archaeopteryx is the earliest known bird to date, and its fossils represent the first evidence of feathers on Earth. Archaeopteryx has often been considered a link between birds and dinosaurs, since it possesses both avian and dinosaur characteristics.Von Meyer's first informal description of Archaeopteryx, published in an earlier unillustrated paper, was based on a fossil of a single feather. Later that same year a partial fossil skeleton was found bearing excellent impressions of wing and tail feathers, which von Meyer cited in the present paper, identifying it positively as the remains of an ancient bird and proposing the species name Archaeopteryx lithographica, by which it is still known.

        On the coagulation of the blood (pp.580-611, 6 Abb.).

      . Proc. roy. Soc., 12 (1862) - London, Taylor and Francis, 1863, 8°, XI, (1), LXVI, 731, (1) pp., Abb., 2 Taf., Halbleinenband.. First Edition! - "In his Croonian Lecture Lister exploded the theory that blood coagulation is due to ammonia and showed that, in the blood vessels, it depends upon their injury. He further showed that by carrying out the strictest precautions he could keep blood free from putrefaction indefinitely, thus supporting his theory that bateria were the cuase of wound suppuration." G/M - - The Intrinsic Pathway of Thrombin Formation - "Why does the blood circulating in the vessels not coagulate?" asked T.W. Jones (Observations on some points in the antomy, physiology, and pathology of the blood) in 1842, a question that today still has no satisfactory answer. Before the role of tissue thromboplastin was appreciated, no one doubted that clotting was an intrinsic property of blood. Rather, the focus of attention was upon how clotting was held in check within the blood vessels and was only brought into play when blood was shed. - When John Hunter (A Treatiseon the Blood, Inflammation, and Gun-Shot Wounds (1817)) reported that blood clotted most readily "round the edge of the dish which it contained," he clearly did not grasp the implications of this observation. In 1863, Lister embarked upon experiments that were designed to examine the idea that clotting was due to the liberation of ammonia. Almost incidentally, he made the important discovery that blood remained partially fluid for several hours in a vulcanized India-rubber tube but clotted promptly in an ordinary cup. He concluded that coagulation came about from the contact of blood with some-but not all-foreign surfaces and that blood remained fluid within our vessels as the passive consequence of the noncoagulant nature of their linings. Lister's conclusions were supported by Freund (Ein Beitrag zur Blutgerinnung (1886), who found that clotting was retarded when blood flowing from an artery was collected in tubes lined with oil or vaseline, results similar to earlier experiments by Babington (Some considerations with respect to the blood founded on one or two very simple experiments on that fluid. Thus, a century after Hewson had begun the scientific study of coagulation, the thesis seemed well established that circulating blood was fluid because it did not come into contact with agents that could initiate the clotting process." Maxwell M. Wintrobe, Blood, Pure and Eloquent, pp.619-620 - - Garrison & Morton No. 871

        The History of England from the Accession of James the Second

      London: Longman, Green, Longman and Roberts 1859-, 1862. Eight volumes, octavo, marbled endpapers, some light foxing, crisp overall; full polished calf, spines with red and green morocco labels and raised bands, ornately gilt, marbled edges. An attractive mixed set of Catherine Macaulay's History of England.Macaulay (1731-1791), who was known as 'Lord Macaulay' at the time by some of her readers, wrote her History in the years following her first husband's death. Macaulay, not related to Thomas Babington Macaulay. was known as a staunch republican. Macaulay depended largely on primary source material which is quite unusual for the time. Although a popular work in England when it was released and later in America, Macaulay's life was somewhat affected by her scandalous reputation marrying her second husband at 47 (26 years her junior). As a result Macaulay's work has at times, been overlooked. Mary Wollstonecraft, in her Vindication of the Rights of Women, speaks of her as "the woman of the greatest abilities that this country has ever produced, endowed with a sound judgment, and writing with sober energy and argumentative closeness". Justly, Macaulay is now considered one of the first noteworthy and influential female English Historians.A very good set in handsome matching bindings.

Original purplish pebble-grained, title gilt to spine, panels in blind to the boards, brown surface-paper endpapers. Coloured frontispiece and 7 other tinted or coloured plates, one with gold, numerous illustrations to the text. Irregularly sunned on the boards and spine, front hinge just a little cracked, light browning and some foxing front and back, but overall very good. First edition. Having begun his archaeological researches in his native Scotland, Rhind's health forced him to winter in Egypt 1855-6 and 1856-7. While there he undertook the " important investigations of the tombs at Thebes" (ODNB) which are recorded here. His methodical practice, he was the first archaeologist to record the exact locations of finds and their relationships, has led to him to being referred to as the "bright shining light of archæological method and conscience." (Wilson, Signs and Wonders upon Pharaoh) On his death, at only 30 years old, he left funds for two scholarships at Edinburgh University; endowed an industrial institution for orphan girls in his home town; and to the Society of Antiquaries of Scotland he bequeathed £400 for excavations, his library; and the copyright of this book and some moneys from his estate towards the establishment of a series of lectures, the prestigious Rhind Lectures continue to this day.

      1862. or, City Life in the Last Century. In Three Volumes. London: Chapman and Hall, 1862. Original magenta wavy-grain cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition of this novel sited in 1761 London. This is a near-fine copy, in the striking original magenta cloth (spines toned to a honey-brown, as usual for this color), with only the slightest of wear at the foot of the spines; it appears that a bookplate was removed from each front paste-down (in one case damaging the endpaper), and one endpaper is cracked, but one would have a hard time finding a better copy of this Ainsworth title. Sadleir 19; Wolff 58 ("this is the Ainsworth 3-decker that I waited longest for").

Very rare broadside with Worldcat only locating a copy at UBC. This is a draft of an act for a railway between Victoria and Esquimalt which most likely hadn't been accepted; unlisted in the official set of Acts. According to the document, "the Victoria and Esquimalt Railway Company Limited was duly registered on the 21st day of November, 1862" with the goal of "making of a Line of Railway between Victoria and Esquimalt, and the conveyance of passengers and goods between Esquimalt and Victoria." The Company will commit to "make and complete the permanent way of the said line within two years from the passage of this Act, unless hindered by the dangers of the sea or other unavoidable casualty." In case of approval, the Act "may be sited as the Victoria and Esquimalt Railway Act, 1862."

      Bruxelles (Brussels): Lacroix, Verboeckoven et Cie. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. FIRST EDITION of one of the world's most influential novels, very handsomely bound. "Ever since its publication in 1862, Les Miserables has remained one of the most widely read novels in the world... Indeed, its appearance was a unique phenomenon in the history of publishing, by the scope of its success among the elite as well as the people, national as well as international, with general readers as well as critics. In addition, dozens of film version- from France, the United States, Italy, Egypt, India, Japan, and the Soviet Union- have perpetuated the legendary quality of the book... Perhaps more than any other work of literature, Victor Hugo's novel has flourished as part of our international consciousness" (Kathryn M. Grossman, Hugo's Romantic Sublime). Bruxelles (Brussels): Lacroix, Verboeckoven et Cie, 1862. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter polished calf by Ward, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, marbled boards, endpapers, and edges. Ten volumes (complete). Bound without half-titles. A few repairs to joints, a little rubbing to a few boards. Text remarkably clean with extremely wide margins. A beautiful set.

        Poems. With a Memoir [by F.T. Palgrave].

      Cambridge: Macmillan 1862 - FIRST COLLECTED EDITION, pp.xxvii, 259, 16 advertisements, 8vo, original green honeycomb cloth, gilt, minor wear to the extremities, good Inscribed on the brown front free endpaper in the month of publication to ‘The Rev’d R.P. Graves with A J Clough’s kind regards July 1862’.Anne Jemima Clough, the poet’s sister, was the first principal of Newnham College Cambridge and a pioneer of women’s education. Robert Perceval Graves (1810-93), scion of a family that ‘had for several generations contributed with distinction to scholarship and to the learned professions in Ireland’ was at the time curate of Windermere and hence neighbour to Anne Clough; the poet, Arthur Hugh, had died in 1861. Graves wrote a Memoir of Wordsworth and a Life of Sir William Rowan Hamilton, these two enjoying a well-known friendship. Graves was also the grand-uncle of the poet Robert Graves, so the volume radiates considerable poetical associations. (Scott A13; Tinker 646)
