HAECKEL, ERNST
Berlin: Georg Reimer, 1862. First edition. VERY RARE COMPLETE SET, WITH 141 LITHOGRAPHED FOLIO PLATES. Complete set of the monograph, including the rare first volume, with a total of 141 beautiful lithographed plates (some colored) after drawings by the author, biologist-artist Ernst Haeckel, based on his microscopic observations of radiolarian species. "Radiolarians are an ancient group of single-celled organisms that have existed since the Proterozoic eon in Precambrian time... Radiolarians are free-swimming protozoa that occur in all the world's oceans. They are microscopically small, with only some forms reaching a few millimetres in size. Although related to amoebas... radiolarians frequently possess a spherical or helmet-like skeleton whose diversity of form fascinated the German zoologist Ernst Haeckel" (Olaf Breidbach, Ernst Haeckel: Art Forms from the Ocean: The Radiolarian Atlas of 1862). "At the end of November [1859], with just a few months left for his research in Italy, Haeckel finally decided to focus on just one group of animals, the almost unknown radiolaria. .... Initially Haeckel prepared a report on his radiolarian work, which [Wilhelm Peters] presented to the [Berlin Academy of Sciences]... All of this was reiterated, with an elaboration of the systematics of the known species, in Haeckel's Habilitationsschrift, rendered into Latin and completed in 1861. Yet neither the readers of the academy report nor of the Habilitationsschrift would have been prepared for the large two-volume monograph Haeckel produced in 1862... The first two of these exercises ann … [Click Below for Full Description]

MINARD, Charles Joseph
Paris,: Regnier et Dourdet, 8 Pass. Ste. Marie (R. du Bac), 1862. Paris,: Regnier et Dourdet, 8 Pass. Ste. Marie (R. du Bac),, 1862. 1862. Lithographed map, signed "Ch. J. Minard" in ink at lower right, mounted on linen. The map shows two flow-maps of the Atlantic trade in wool and cotton, three years apart. The time period covers the beginning of the American Civil War, which was sparked by the slavery policies of the Lincoln presidency. By January 1861, seven of the southern states had seceded to form the Confederacy. The war between the Confederacy and the states who remained in the Union lasted until 1865, and had a devastating effect on American exports. The seven separatist states are marked on both maps. The Confederacy attempted to use 'Cotton Diplomacy', cutting off the cotton supply to force European powers to intervene to save their domestic industries. In early 1861, the Union had not yet implemented its wartime blockade of the South, and cotton and wool could still be exported, but Britain and other major customers were worried about the stability of the American supply, investing heavily in production in South Asia. A line graph in the upper right corner shows the yearly export amounts of wool and cotton for America (blue). There is a sharp drop in exports from 1860, when the issues provoking the Civil War came to prominence. Comparing the two maps gives an even clearer picture of the change; by 1861 the amount of cotton and wool imported into Britain from India (yellow) had almost tripled, whereas the amount imported from America (blue) had only risen by … [Click Below for Full Description]

DUPONT (Pierre), DORÉ (Gustave)
(1862) Leblanc, 218. Second tirage du plus spectaculaire des livres illustrés par Gustave Doré, comprenant 12 planches monumentales évoquant un monde chaotique et sombre. "Le chef-d'œuvre de Doré dans le genre chaotique (...). Et puis le format est formidable !" (Beraldi). En préface, Paul Lacroix rend hommage à la virtuosité des graveurs : "L'emploi des planches de buis qu'on avait pas encore appropriées à des œuvres de pareille dimension leur a permis de faire entrer dans ces grandes pages les travaux les plus fins et les plus achevés ; ils ont ainsi, au moyen de la gravure sur bois, rendu des tons et des effets qu'on croyait ne pouvoir obtenir qu'avec la gravure sur métal". Reconnaissant et conscient du tour de force, Doré céda ses droits de reproduction aux trois graveurs. "On ne saurait trop louer la maîtrise développée ici par les trois graveurs (...), habiles et heureux interprètes de Doré dont ils ont exécuté, sur bois, les dessins avec une vigueur de tons qu'il est difficile de surpasser" (Leblanc). Bon exemplaire malgré les petits défauts d'usage signalés à la reliure et des minimes rousseurs sans gravité sur les pages de texte ; les planches, protégées par des serpentes, ont été épargnées.

Yokohama: 1862. Original outline hand coloured copper engraved map. 88x156 cm. Folding map in original beige linen covers with printed pink paper title label on front cover. Some minor worming of blank margins, but overall a very good copy in very original condition. Rare map with only three copies found in Worldcat. This large format map published by Edward Schnell (1834-1890) is the corrected and updated second edition of the map published in 1858 by Kango Takeda, who had translated and redrawn the 1845 world map by John Purdy et al titled: ''A New Chart of the World On Mercator's Projection with the Tracks of the Most Celebrated & Recent Navigators''. The original 1845 map had been owned and used by Admiral Yevfimy Putyatin on his ship Diana during his diplomatic mission to Japan which resulted in the signing of the Treaty of Shimoda in 1855. However, the Diana sank in the Bay of Miyajima-mura after the powerful Ansei-Tōkai earthquake of 23 December 1854. Nevertheless, Putyatin's world map was saved and came into the hands of Kango Takeda, who translated it and produced a Japanese version of it in 1858. Then in 1862 Edward Schnell updated and corrected Takeda's 1858 map and published the present map. This world map on Mercator's projection, has several text boxes including a distance chart with distances from London shown to various destinations and a chronological list of the most important explorers. The routes of the voyages of major 18th and 19th century explorers such as Captain Cook's et al are also shown on the map.

MINARD, Charles Joseph
Paris,: Regnier et Dourdet, 8 Pe. Se. Marie, R. du Bac, 1862. Description Lithographed map, signed Ch. J. Minard in ink to title, mounted on linen.NotesThe map highlights an interesting demographic period after the abolition of slavery in Britain (1838) and France (1848), creating a dearth of workers in European colonies. The black lines coming out of Congo to Mauritius and La Reunion show the passage of workers from Africa to work on the sugar plantations owned by the French. The brown lines show the influx of indentured labourers from French settlements in Tamil Nadu in India, to fill the void created by the end of slavery. A substantial number of African and Indian migrants also make their way to the West Indies. The small blue line across the Mediterranean shows French migration to Algeria, one of its richest colonies. The thick green lines dominating the map show the huge wave of immigration from Britain to America, Canada and Australia; Australia became particularly attractive to prospective settlers after gold was found there. The number of British emigrants to America, however, was dwarfed by the number of Germans; in the period 1840-80, they made up the largest percentage of American immigrants. Migration was motivated by economic prospects and after the 1848 revolutions in some German states, there was also a wave of political refugees fleeing to North America. Brazil gained independence from Portugal in 1822, but immigration there from Portugal actually increased after it stopped being a colony, mainly peasants from rural areas. There was also a substantial mino … [Click Below for Full Description]
