        Les races bovines, études zootechniques.

      Paris, Imprimerie Nationale, (1864). 2 volumes (text & atlas). Oblong folio (350 x 480 mm). pp. (6), lxxiv, (2), with 5 handcoloured maps; pp. (iv), 5 subtitiles and 87 fine plates of cattle races. Publisher's red half morocco, gilt ornamented spines and sides. One of the most beautifully produced work on cattle. Many of the excellent plates are after photographs by Nadar. Nadar (1820-1910), is best known for his fine photographic portraits of celebrated Frenchmen of the day. Artists like Emile van Marcke, Isodore Bonheur and Barye contributed to this work. "The plates were produced by a mixed process of photographic transposing on to a metal plate (heliography) followed by handwork of various kinds - soft ground etching, mezzotint and aquatint, the background tint being achieved by lithography" (D.H. Boalch, 'Prints and paintings of British farm livestock, 1780-1910)'. The work was published as a result of the first 'concours agricole universel' held in Paris 1856. "Au mois de mai 1856, le Gouvernement impérial ouvrit à Paris le premier concours agricole universel qui ait été tenu en France. Votre éminent prédécesseur pensa qu'il serai utile de saisir cette occasion pour faire reproduire dans un album les meilleurs types d'élévage étrangers. M. Baudement, professeur de zootechnie au Conservatoire des arts et métiers et membre du jury, fut chargé de cette publication et s'associa d'excellents artistes pour ces reproductions " (From the dedication). Plates 1-21 show cattle of 'Iles Britanniques', plates 22-31 'Hollande et Danemark' plates 32-43 'Suisse et Allemagne', plates 44-62 'Empire d'Austriche' and plates 63-87 'France'. The work also appeared under a slightly different title, adding after bovines 'au concours universel agricole de Paris en 1856'. Some slight foxing to text volume and some discoloration to frontcover of atlas.//Nissen ZBI, 257,.

Thoreau&#146;s journey to the Maine Woods has served to this day as a guide for the reverent to the peaceful wilds of the Maine wilderness. By river, rail, and foot, Thoreau ventured with friends to discover the peace of a land they thought would one day be overrun by settlers and tourists. They gazed up a plethora of wildlife, discovered moose in the streams and imbibed the spirit of unspoiled beauty.<br> Thoreau and his party were amongst the very first to set foot upon the summit of Ktaadn. Revered by the native peoples of the region who never ventured to its granite slopes due to reverence, fear, and weather, Ktaadn is today considered perhaps the greatest climbing mountain east of the Mississippi. Though Thoreau and his group took the long and pleasant southern route up, they broke new trails to reach the massive multi-peaked fortress that forms the great mountain. Further chapters offer wonderful reflections on the great Maine wilderness of the Allagash, the wilderness waterway and of moose stalking in the 19th century. "Emerson reading over the essay decided it was the first piece of American literature he had seen in ten years that was worth binding" (Harding). <br> Thoreau &#147;must always be read, whether lovingly or interestedly, for he has all the variable charm... the contradictions, austerities and delightful surprises, of Nature herself.&#148; [Ency Britt] <br> Thoreau&#146;s journey to the Maine Woods has served to this day as a guide for the reverent of the peaceful wilds of the Maine wilderness. By river, rail, and foot, Thoreau ventured with friends to discover the tranquility of a land they thought would one day be overrun by settlers and tourists. <br> Although Thoreau&#146;s background is widely known, a few details are worth repeating. Thoreau first began to appreciate nature in taking care of his mother&#146;s cows. Although he was academically active, having attended Harvard and working as a lecturer and author, his income principally derived from his employment as a surveyor. This job fit in with his notions of the practice of individual economy: he came to believe that the less labor a man did, the better it was for him and the community at large. In fact, he believed that one should have six days of rest and one of labor. He carried out his famous experiment at Walden to prove this point and came to befriend the animals in his environs: &#147;This exquisite familiarity with bird and beast would make us love the memory of Thoreau [even] if his egotism were triply as arrogant, if his often meaningless paradoxes were even more absurd, if his sympathies were even less humanitarian than we know them to have been.&#148; [Ency Britt]<br> Edward Hoar accompanied Thoreau on his journey to the Maine woods. On July 20, 1857, Hoar met Thoreau at the Boston Natural History Museum from which they departed on their journey at 5:00 PM. Hoar was separated from the party on July 29 but found the next day. The woods expedition ended on August 3 and on the morning of August 4, Thatcher, (Thoreau&#39;s uncle who lived in Bangor), Hoar and Thoreau rode to Pushaw Lake and stayed in and around Bangor until the 7th. The left for Portland in the evening and then by boat left for the return to Boston to which they arrived on the morning of Saturday, August 8 and from there, went on to Concord, arriving later on the same morning.<br> First edition copies of this book have become increasingly elusive.

        The New York Herald, July 9, 1864: The Naval Battle of Cherbourg

      New York: The New York Herald, 1864-01-01. Paperback. Good. Folio size newspaper. 8p. Folded twice. Some toning and tanning. First newspaper to print a full in-depth report and map of the U.S.S Kearsarge&#39;s battle and victory over the C.S.S. Alabama near Cherbourg, France. Map has heavy ink from the press, lighter ink on the bottom of the front page. Wear to extremities. Hole present on subtitle between States and Kearsarge and a hole present at mid-section (see picture). Along the long-title before the report, there is a 2 inch long scratch and two very small holes. 1 tear on upper right and 1 tear on center top of map. Along the main fold along the midsection the paper is in delicate condition. The pages 2-3 and 6-7 are uncut, unusual for a paper this old, especially for a paper printed in the Civil War. Pg. 4 relates the news from the Confederate raids into Maryland and Pennsylvania during the March on Washington and just before the Battle of Monocacy. Pg 5 continues the story from page 1 on the battle of Cherbourg. A rare edition of one of the most important naval battles during the Civil War. Please feel free to view our photographs. <br><br> The Battle of Cherbourg, or sometimes the Battle off Cherbourg or the Sinking of CSS Alabama, was a single-ship action fought during the American Civil War between a United States Navy warship, the USS Kearsarge, and a Confederate States Navy warship, the CSS Alabama, on June 19, 1864, off Cherbourg, France. The CSS Alabama served as a successful commerce raider, attacking Union merchant and naval ships over the course of her two-year career, during which she never anchored in a Southern port. However, it was a meeting of chance, a meeting 2 years in waiting, when the Kearsarge saw the Alabama in port for some much needed repairs. Both captains, respectful of French neutrality went into international waters and commenced, with the Alabama opening fire first. For many years after the battle, Confederate Captain Semmes stated that he would never have chosen to test USS Kearsarge had he known of her armor-clad protection. CSS Alabama had destroyed or captured dozens of Union merchant vessels during her Atlantic cruises; when word of Alabama&#39;s sinking reached the northeastern United States, many Northerners were joyful.

        Raven Rockstrow: or, the Pedlar's Dream. A romance of Melbourne.

      - Melbourne, Caxton Repository 1864. Octavo later (earlyish-mid c20th) morocco; [8],7-258pp, (wood?) engraved frontispiece by Calvert after a drawing by John Fallon. Name and a couple of extraneous squirls on the title, some browning; a pretty good copy with the bookplate of Harry Austin Brentnall, medico and bookmaker whose books used to be ubiquitous in the Sydney trade. Only edition of this quite rare sensation thriller, dubbed the first Melbourne novel proper. Certainly it's a grim metropolitan book set in the slums where life revolves around the pawn shop. From two brief paragraphs I picked out these descriptions of Goodrich's Melbourne: dreary, isolation, misery, oppressive, ghostly waste, and forlorn. Blackmail, murder, a story within a story; it's all here. This has one of the most captivating illustrations I've seen in a thriller. The frontispiece, on pink paper, is a dark, dark engraving that demands close inspection; maybe the best depiction of what mysterious deeds in the dark of night really look like. The binding is neat and workmanlike more than inspired. Most of the twentieth century was not a good period for Australian binding.

      Washington: Henry Lindenkohl & Charles G. Krebs, 1864. - Map, 19 x 30 1/2 inches. Printed in blue and black, matted. Minor foxing and soiling. Very good. An important military map showing the area around Richmond and Petersburg, Virginia, all the way to the Chesapeake Bay, and including the Northern Neck and the country as far south as Norfolk. Railroads, roads, and waterways are all noted in detail. Richmond has been ringed with concentric circles, printed in blue, spaced five miles apart to show the distance from the city. This map was compiled by the U.S. Coast Survey and is dated June 1864. With the beginning of the Civil War the United States Army found itself scrambling to obtain adequate field maps for military operations in the South. The most established cartographic branch of the Government, the Coast Survey, was pressed into service to provide these maps, some with a coastal component but mainly for landlocked locations. The cartographers of the Coast Survey reviewed all of the existing cartography available, but also drew on military and scouting reports and covert agents to assemble to most detailed possible maps detailing places, roads, railroads, natural features. Two key figures in the Coast Survey effort during the War were Henry Lindenkohl and his brother Adolph, who were responsible for actually drawing many of the field maps. The Lindenkohls were born in Germany, but emigrated to the United States as teenagers and became American citizens. Adolph had already worked at the Coast Survey before the War began, and Henry joined in 1861. Together they made a huge contribution to the war effort through their superb cartographic work, producing and revising maps of different theatres of operations through 1865. Both continued with the survey for the rest of their lives; Adolph died in 1904 after fifty years on the job, and Henry in 1920 after fifty-nine. A detailed map of southeastern Virginia, printed toward the end of the war. By the time this was executed, Grant had pushed southward in the bitter fighting of the summer of 1864, and the noose had tightened around Richmond and Petersburg. LC MAPS OF THE CIVIL WAR 490.

        Experimentelle Untersuchungen zur Physiologie und Pathologie der Embolie, Transfusion und Blutmenge.

      - Virch. Arch. path. Anat., 27./29. - Berlin, Verlag von Georg Reimer, 1864, 8°, (2), 286 pp., orig. Broschur; unaufgeschnittenes frisches Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe in Buchform dieses Grundlagenwerkes. - Peter Ludwig Panum (1820-1885) aus Rönne in Bornholm, ein Schüler Claude Bernards, Professor in Kiel und Kopenhagen, ist der Begründer der modernen dänischen Physiologie. Der vorliegende, klassische Text enthält grundlegende Erkenntnisse zur Lehre von den embolischen Prozessen und zur Transfusionskunde. Daneben finden sich noch sehr frühe, experimentelle Studien zur Koronardurchblutung. -- Panum erkannte, daß beim defibrinierten Blut kein Unterschied mehr zwischen arterieller und venöser Herkunft bestand. Er bemerkte, daß die transfundierten Blutkörperchen im Empfängerorganismus weiter ihre respiratorische Funktion ausüben und das Fibrin innerhalb von 48 Stunden wieder regeneriert wird. Daneben konnte er nachweisen, daß defibriniertes Blut wiederbelebend wirkte und auch in größeren Mengen gut vertragen wurde. Mit diesen Erkenntnissen gehört Panum zu den Pionieren der Transfusionskunde. -- Von ebenso großer Bedeutung sind seine Forschungsergebnisse zur Entstehung der Embolie, die er durch Injektionen von Öl, Fett, Wachs, etc. in die Aorta und Koronararterien von Hunden gewonnen hatte. Alle vorliegenden Arbeiten stammen noch aus der Kieler Tätigkeit des berühmten Physiologen. - FIRST COLLECTED EDITION. Among the earliest studies of the coronary circulation to employ methods of physiological measurement, Panum's experiments confirmed Erichsen's conclusion that any disease, such as hardening of the coronary arteries, that interferes with the flow of the blood through them may result in sudden death. He embolized the coronary arteries and aorta of dogs by means injection of powder, wax, oil and India ink, finding gradual cessation of cardiac action. -- He replaced practically the entire blood of a dog and found no change in behavior of the animal. He pointed out the dangers implied in direct transfusion of non-defibrinated blood and in transfusion from one species to another. He found the transfusion of defibrinated blood within the same species to be relatively safe. -- Panum, who had trained under Virchow and Claude Bernard, was the founder of modern Danish physiology. He opened the first Danish physiology laboratory in Copenhagen in 1864. - See Leibowitz, Hist. of Cor.

A 'Post-facio' section follows with a copy (indicated as "Prefacio" on the titlle page but actually appearing at the conclusion of the text) of the author's letter to Dr. Caetano Filgueiras, dated Rio de Janeiro, 1° Sept. 1864. Notes, errata, and an index follows the text. First editions of Machado de Assis are quite scarce; especially this early and in this condition. See additional images provided. Born June 21, 1839, died Sept. 29, 1908, Machado de Assis was a Brazilian novelist, poet, playwright, short story writer, and advocate of monarchism. He is widely regarded as the greatest writer of Brazilian literature, but he did not gain widespread popularity outside Brazil in his own lifetime. He was multilingual, having learned French, English, German, and Greek later in life. Machado's works had a great influence on Brazilian literary schools of the late 19th and early 20th century. José Saramago, Carlos Fuentes, Woody Allen and Susan Sontag are among his admirers. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Image fresh and crisp. Very good. An imagined image depicting a white Union soldier reading the Emancipation Proclamation to a cabin full of slaves (or former slaves). A young boy stands atop a chair and holds a torch aloft to make light, while a woman kneels and clasps her hands together prayerfully at the table next to him, two smaller children clinging to her. To her left, an older woman raises a hand in thankfulness while a man swings his cap to celebrate. To the right of the boy with the torch and the reading soldier, a woman holds a baby while her daughter stands near her, and a man next to her prays over clasped hands. Another man peers incredulously at the newspaper over the shoulder of the soldier. A boll of cotton hangs from a line strung across the room at the top edge of the image. The image was drawn by H.W. Herrick and engraved by J.W. Watts. It is copyrighted by Lucious Stebbins and was issued with a pamphlet by him. The title and a portrait of Abraham Lincoln are beneath the image itself. A wonderful image, combining sentiment and propaganda in equal degrees.

        FRAMED Johnson's Nebraska Dakota, Colorado Idaho and Kansas

      1864 - 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's 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. This signal page map illustrates the states of Nebraska Dakota, Colorado Idaho and Kansas. 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's exploration route. This map is framed with a decorative wooden frame with matting and an inner framed with a fillet and marble paper. All Art Source framing use archival materials including acid-free mat board and UVA protective glass.

        Collection of six items of Lincoln ephemera, mostly relating to the 1864 re-election campaign; and with one relating to his death

      Very Good. A positive outcome of the re-election campaign of Abraham Lincoln in 1864 was in doubt up to the very end. But in the end, Lincoln won with a large electoral college victory and quite a substantial popular vote. There was "dissatisfaction within his own party by Radical Republicans, who doubted Lincoln&#39;s commitment to ensuring political equality for the formerly enslaved once the war had ended" [see the website of the Miller Center, University of Virginia, &#39;The Campaign and Election of 1864&#39;]. He was also at odds within his own party regarding his aversion to the Wade-Davis bill. Between those things and the Democratic platform attacking his abuse of presidential powers for "censoring the press, extending military rule over areas adequately served by civilian government, and arresting and detaining war critics without benefit of a trial [see the Miller Center article], even Lincoln felt that his campaign would not survive. And so, a vicious campaign ensued with a pamphlet battle of opposition tracts the likes of which had not been seen before. The Democrats in New York, for example, formed a "Society for the Diffusion of Political Knowledge" and issued pamphlets confusing voters regarding miscegenation and abolition. Scurrilous pamphlets were issued regarding a number of controversial subjects. And paper ruled supreme. In the end of course, the Emancipation Proclamation, then the fall of Atlanta, and General Grant, insuring that soldiers were able to vote either by absentee ballot or by getting leave to go home to vote, gave the President all he needed to win the election overwhelmingly. Among the paper ephemera and pamphlets issued during this campaign were Union Campaign tickets from various states. The campaign tickets were announcing and supporting the "National Union Party," the name used by the Republican Party for the National ticket in the 1864 presidential election. It was used to attract the War Democrats. & & This collection of Lincoln ephemera includes these printed Union tickets. Three Union Tickets, one from Massachusetts, two from California; a broadside poem "Hymn for the National Fast. Appointed by President Lincoln, April 30th, 1863; an envelope with a bust-length engraving of Lincoln imprinted "J.M. Whittemore & Co., Publishers, Boston;" a woodcut engraving of one of the battles of the Civil War, the sinking of the CSS Alabama during the Battle of Cherbourg; and a Boston city pamphlet of the memorial service in honor of the death of President Lincoln, June 1, 1865. The Massachusetts Union Ticket is printed in red, blue, and black on white/cream paper and headed "Lincoln and Johnson Union Ticket. One Flag, One Country, One Government. We Vote, as our Soldiers... for Liberty and the Union...." This is an statement as well on the decision of the president to allow the soldiers to vote in the election by absentee ballot. Among the electors is Edward Everett of Boston. Also included on the ticket were: "For Representative in Congress for District No. Four, Samuel Hooper... Governor, John A. Andrew...." Printed by "John Ford, Printer, Harvard Square." The California Union Tickets are from the 2nd Congressional District which included Sacramento and the 1st Congressional District which included San Francisco. The 2nd district ticket proclaims "We will defend it forever!" with a woodcut of the American flag and a cannon. On the verso, printed in red, is a woodcut of "The Union Forever," with images including Lady Liberty, a flag, the White House, etc. The 1st district ticket is printed in a burnt orange/reddish color. & & Also included in this collection is a printed broadside poem "Hymn for the National Fast. Appointed by President Lincoln, April 30th, 1863" which says, in part, "Almighty God, before thy throne A mourning people bend... We come, a sad and broken band, And filled with grief, deplore That Union, once our pride and boast, Which now we know no more...." Senator James Harlan of Iowa, whose daughter later married President Lincoln&#39;s son Robert, introduced a Resolution in the Senate on March 2, 1863 asking President Lincoln to proclaim a national day of prayer and fasting. The Resolution was adopted on March 3, and signed by Lincoln on March 30, one month before the fast day was observed. This hymn was printed in honor of the occasion of the National Fast. The woodcut engraving, artist unknown, showing three ships, one, the CSS Alabama, sinking and one, the USS Kearsarge, the US Navy warship with smoke billowing around it. In the center, smaller than the others is the English yacht, the Deerhound which observed the battle off Cherbourg, France on June 19, 1864 and which took Semmes, the Captain of the Alabama and 40 of his men to England to ensure that they were not captured. This battle was unusual because it took place outside of American waters. Also, the Alabama had been victorious a number of times against the Union during its time at sea, so when news came to the United States, the northerners were thrilled. The battle was so stunning that Edouard Manet painted two paintings of it.& & Pamphlet, 4 pages, 1865, entitled "City of Boston. Memorial Services in Honor of Abraham Lincoln, The Late President of the United States, at Music Hall, Thursday, June 1, 1865." The service program includes the Committee of Arrangements with a list of members&#39; names, including John S. Tyler, Joseph Story, Solomon B. Stebbins and others; a eulogy by Hon. Charles Sumner, and "Choral: Luther&#39;s Judgment Hymn. Words by O. W. Holmes." While Lincoln was mourned and honored all along the train route to Illinois for his burial just a few short months after his re-election, there were many memorial services throughout the country, including more than one in Boston. One was held just three days after Lincoln&#39;s death in Faneuil Hall. The one offered here was a large service at Music Hall, a building built in 1852, housing the first concert organ in the country (and only first inaugurated in November of 1863). Included as well in this collection is an envelope with a bust-length portrait engraving of Lincoln imprinted "J.M. Whittemore & Co., Publishers, Boston." Very Good. Additional images on request.
