Lesosvsky (also Lesovskii), Stepan
December 5, Flag Ship Osliabia, Road of Alexandria in the Potomac, 1863. 4to, 16 lines, approx. 90 words; integral leaf attached; generally very good. A rare letter from the Russian Rear-Admiral while on a diplomatic mission to the U.S. 1863-64. This expedition became a military demonstration by Russia during the Civil War. England and France advocated for the southern rebels. Russia held a friendly position in respect to the federal government in the North. It increased hostility toward Russia on the part of England and France, which strove for loosening Russia's international influence. The Russian government decided to send two ship squadrons to the US to demonstrate support for the northerners, as well as to create a potential threat to marine communications of England and France in order to make them refuse assistance to the South States. The Osliabia (built 1860) was a screw frigate and was decommissioned in 1874. In part: "In reply to your interesting note, I beg to inform you that the following officers of the Squadron have been with me on the Diana during the memorable earthquake." The Admiral goes on to list the details of two captains and their commands. Bache, grandson of Benjamin Franklin, at the time was head of the U. S. Coast Survey.

BRICK-CONSTRUCTIONS.
Berlin, 1863. Folio. Cont. hcalf. (108) pp. of text with many woodcut illustrations and 85 fine lithographed plates in colours, depicting details of bricklaying, patterns, houses etc. etc. Some plates slightly brownspotted. ¶ Highly interesting German work on brick-constructions, which dates from the tumultous era of what is by some called the Second Industrial Revolution. This era included the rise of industrial powers such as USA and Germany, and it is not a coincidence that this interesting work on brick-construction is printed in Berlin.<br><br>From about 1830 and till the early 20th century, there was a revival of industrial building, which meant a large demand for bricks. Luckily, brick manufacturing methods had greatly improved since earlier centuries, and from the middle of the 18th century, the manufacturing process of bricks had become mechanized, and due to improvements in travel and communications, bricks could be transported over wide areas, which meant that there was no longer a need to stick to the locally produced type of brick. <br>The speed of construction during the Industrial Age demanded certain improvements, which were met with throughout the 19th century, e.g. the development of natural cements, and other hydraulic limes, which set quicker and were stronger. <br>The multitude of opportunities within the field allowed for numerous new trends and popular styles, as will be seen from the plates.<br>During the Renaissance and the Baroque, visible brick walls had been unpopular, and they were often covered up, and it was only from the mid 18th century that … [Click Below for Full Description]

Tinsley Brothers, 1863. 2 volumes. 'Second Edition', but most likely the 'First Edition' with the new slug added to the title pages for marketing and advertising purposes. With a folding map in Vol. I and frontispiece plate in Vol. II. 8vo, publisher's original terra-cotta cloth lettered and ruled in gilt on the spines, with blind ruled borders on covers and central devices blocked in blind, top edges untrimmed. ACCORDING TO PENZER, THIS COPY IN THE MOST RARE BINDING STATE WITHOUT BURTON'S NAME OR F.R.G.S. TO THE SPINE PANELS. x, 303; vi, 295. A very handsome set, clean and very well preserved, text-block in each volume tight and crisp, hinges sound, light evidence of age to the extremities. SUCH WELL PRESERVED COPIES ARE SCARCE IN CLOTH AND COPIES IN THE MOST RARE BINDING STATE ARE NEAR UNOBTAINABLE. According to Penzer, Burton intended to suppress his name entirely from this work, and our copy has neither Burton nor F.R.G.S. on the spine panel. The rarest of the bindings, as ours here, has the suppression successfully made. And this is a very handsome and well preserved copy of this fragile book. THE SPINK CATALOGUE OF 1976 PRICED A COPY OF THIS ISSUE IN THE SAME BINDING, HIGHER THAN ANY OTHER COPY OF ANY EDITION OF THE TITLE. (Spink 28, 29, 30) Burton was appointed consul at Fernando Po in 1861 and he used his post to explore the contiguous areas of Nigeria and Sierra Leone, as well as Madeira and Tenerife. Fascinated by the high incidence of European mortality in West Africa, he believed it possible to render the region "not more unhealthy than the East or West Indies." … [Click Below for Full Description]

Civil War]:
Vicksburg, Ms.: J.M. Swords, Proprietor, 1863. - Folio broadside, printed on wallpaper. Old folds, closed tear in blank margin of one fold, some spotting. Very good. The newspapers printed on wallpaper in Vicksburg during its siege were widely noted at the time, and the Union troops who took possession of the city on July 4 completed and distributed the last issue standing in type. Numerous facsimile versions were published later. This is the first reproduction issue, probably produced in the North as a commemoration later in 1863. Brigham identifies this as the first reproduction, noting its minor variations from the original, mainly the substitution of the article, "Recent Federal Losses at Vicksburg," in the last column. Brigham details some twenty facsimile versions. Brigham, "Wall-Paper Newspapers of the Civil War" in BIBLIOGRAPHICAL ESSAYS FOR WILBERFORCE EAMES (New York, 1924), pp.203-9.

Johnson and Ward
1863. Near the forefront of the atlas publication industry for a quarter century was mapmaker and aggressive marketer Alvin Jewitt Johnson. Around 1860, in a transaction that remains somewhat mysterious, Johnson acquired a set of detailed plates from J.H.Colton, one of the foremost mapmakers of the century, and used them to print the Johnson atlas that was to find its way into homes across the country. Johnson%27s New Illustrated Family Atlas was first published in 1860, and today these maps have become prized collectibles and true works of cartographic art. The attention to detail and fine hand coloring of these maps make them some of the best collectibles maps from the 19th century. Fantastic map showing states and territories of the Great Plaines. This map shows Idaho, Dakota, Nebraska, Colorado and Kansas, dated 1863. Note that Dakota is unsplit into north and south, and Idaho Territory occupies what is present day Wyoming and Montana. Map details western forts, cities and towns, lakes and rivers, wagon trails, railroads and proposed railroads, and Capt. Gunnison%27s exploration route.

With Chauveau he was the first to perform cardiac catherisation on living horses, by means of his cardiac sound he recorded the intracardiac pressures in the right and left ventricles and atrium." -cf. Beford 260 - "Includes the first graphic records of the pulse. " Lilly 221 - Atrial fibrillation is first recorded in this important monograph in which Marey used pulse tracings to "establish the relationship of heart rate and blood pressure. " DSB 9: 101 - During his first decade of his research career (1857-1867), Marey applied the technique of graphical recording to the study of the mechanics and hydraulics of the circulatory system, the heartbeat, respiration, and muscle contraction in general. He analyzed the circulatory and muscular systems in terms of the physical variables, elasticity, resistance, and tonicity and thus laid the foundation for all subsequent research culminating in the heart transplantation technique in the second half of the twentieth century. - Heirs of Hippocrates 1047; LeFanu, Notable Medical Books from the Lilly Library, p.221; Eder, History of Photography; Waller 6248; Vierordt 185; DSB IX. … [Click Below for Full Description]

PHELAN, Michael
New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1863. Fifth Edition. Hardcover. Despite the missing portrait, a Fine, bright copy of this uncommon title. Revised, Enlarged, and Richly Embellished with Engravings." Decorated cloth. First published in 1856, all editions of this early billiards book, the second American book on the game, are scarce. The author, Michael Phelan, also published the first American book on the game, BILLIARDS WITHOUT MASTER, just thirteen years before this edition. Considered the father of American billiards, Phelan was influential in devising rules and setting standards of behavior, holds many patents for table designs and cushions, and is credited as being the first to put diamonds on tables. Phelan almost single-handedly turned American billiards into a socially acceptable pastime. This book is indeed richly embellished with engravings, mostly full-page diagrams showing shots on tables but also including full-page and text engravings of people playing billiards. The author covers rules, practical advice, and the history of the game, including a brief chapter on Shakespeare as a billiards player. There are four pages of ads at the end with two illustrations. This book appears to have had a frontispiece portrait of the author. A tissue guard is present, and there is a very, very faint image on the verso of the opposite page indicating that the portrait would have been removed long ago.

RENAN, ERNEST. - [PMM 352 - THE HISTORICAL CHRIST]
Paris, Michel Lévy Frères, 1863. Royal 8vo. Bound in a nice cont. red hcalf w. four raised bands on gilt back. Marbled paper over boards probably renewed. A bit of minor soiling to back, but a very nice, clean and tight copy, in- as well as externally. W. half-title ("Histoire des Origines du Christianisme. Livre premier"). (4), LIX, 462 pp. + (1) leaf (colophon). ¶ True first edition of this seminal classic on the life of Jesus, which caused an immediate scandal when it appeared. Renan's masterpiece, which constitudes the first attempt to write a biography of Jesus the man and strongly puts forth the notion that the Bible too can be subject to historical investigation and critical scrutiny. The work enraged the Roman Catholic Church but was an immediate success in most of Europe. "In six months sixty thousand copies of the French edition had been sold and edition succeeded edition. Renan regarded the book as the first of a series on the "Origins of Christianity", which he continued with "The Apostles" (1866), "Saint Paul" (1869), "The Anti-Christ" (1873), "The Gospels" (1877), "The Christian Church" (1879) and "Marcus Aurelius" (1881) but none of these emulated the success of the "Life of Jesus"... Immediate success was partly a "succès de scandale" but this would not have kept the book alive. It is Renan's approach to the subject and his beautiful prose that gave it lasting eminence." (PMM 352). This groundbreaking work analyses the personality of the man Jesus, -a figure created by Renan out of his mind but based on historical sources. "It is a pastoral idyll with the ce … [Click Below for Full Description]

BRICK-CONSTRUCTIONS.
Berlin, 1863. Folio. Cont. hcalf. (108) pp. of text with many woodcut illustrations and 85 fine lithographed plates in colours, depicting details of bricklaying, patterns, houses etc. etc. Some plates slightly brownspotted. ¶ Highly interesting German work on brick-constructions, which dates from the tumultous era of what is by some called the Second Industrial Revolution. This era included the rise of industrial powers such as USA and Germany, and it is not a coincidence that this interesting work on brick-construction is printed in Berlin.From about 1830 and till the early 20th century, there was a revival of industrial building, which meant a large demand for bricks. Luckily, brick manufacturing methods had greatly improved since earlier centuries, and from the middle of the 18th century, the manufacturing process of bricks had become mechanized, and due to improvements in travel and communications, bricks could be transported over wide areas, which meant that there was no longer a need to stick to the locally produced type of brick. The speed of construction during the Industrial Age demanded certain improvements, which were met with throughout the 19th century, e.g. the development of natural cements, and other hydraulic limes, which set quicker and were stronger. The multitude of opportunities within the field allowed for numerous new trends and popular styles, as will be seen from the plates.During the Renaissance and the Baroque, visible brick walls had been unpopular, and they were often covered up, and it was only from the mid 18th century that they began to becom … [Click Below for Full Description]
