Giovanni Capellini (La Spezia, 23 agosto 1833 – Bologna, 28 maggio 1922) fu un geologo e paleontologo italiano, oltre a ricoprire la carica di senatore del Regno d'Italia nel corso della XVII legislatura. Non avendo voluto seguire l'arte del padre musicista, fu avviato dalla famiglia, nonostante la mancanza di vocazione, alla carriera ecclesiastica. Nel frattempo, per far fronte alle disagiate condizioni economiche, lavorò prima come rilegatore di libri, successivamente come istitutore in un collegio di La Spezia, quindi si cimentò nella costruzione di apparecchi elettrici, con i quali allestì un discreto gabinetto di fisica nella casa paterna. Con la morte del padre, Cappellini si decise ad abbandonare la vita clericale e, ottenuto un sussidio per gli studi dal municipio di La Spezia, iniziò a frequentare l'Università di Pisa, presso la quale nel 1858 conseguì la laurea. Dopo aver proseguito gli studi a Parigi e a Londra, rientrato in Italia nel 1861, fu nominato professore di storia naturale nel Collegio nazionale di Genova e successivamente fu chiamato a ricoprire la cattedra di geologia presso l'Università di Bologna. Fu nominato due volte magnifico rettore dell'Università di Bologna e preside di facoltà per moltissimi anni. Fu nominato anche senatore del Regno d'Italia e ricevette numerosissime onorificenze, decorazioni e titoli accademici in Italia e all'estero. Il 28 maggio 1922 si spense in Bologna. Maurizio Gerbaix De Sonnaz, Conte, Marchese de la Roche e di Chatelet, Signore di Mondésir (Torino, 26 novembre 1816 – Torino, 21 maggio 1892), fu un generale e politico italiano. Prese parte alla seconda e alla terza Guerra d'Indipendenza, e dal 1869 rivestì la carica di aiutante di campo di Vittorio Emanuele II di Savoia. L'anno seguente venne nominato dal Re senatore della XI legislatura del Regno d'Italia. Giovanni Visone (Costigliole d'Asti, 5 ottobre 1814 – Moncalieri, 14 agosto 1893) fu un politico italiano e ricoprì dal 1874 al 1892 la carica di Ministro della Real Casa. Nel Regno d'Italia il Ministero della Real Casa era un ufficio piuttosto complesso, strutturato in direzioni e sezioni come i ministeri dell'amministrazione statale, al quale era affidata l'amministrazione dei beni della corona e della lista civile. Non faceva parte del governo, ma la sua nomina, col regio decreto 14 novembre 1901, n. 466, fu fatta rientrare tra le attribuzioni del Consiglio dei ministri. Il Ministero della Real Casa, unitamente alla Casa militare (diretta dal Primo aiutante di campo del Re), alla Casa civile (diretta dal Prefetto di palazzo) e ad altri uffici minori, costituiva la Real Casa..

        What Led to the Discovery of the Source of the Nile

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1864. Octavo. Original reddish-brown cloth, titles to spine gilt, blind panels to the boards, green coated endpapers, binder's ticket of Edmonds & Remnants to the rear pastedown. Frontispiece, folding map of the Somali coast and double-page map of Eastern Africa. Complete with the publisher's 32-page catalogue to rear. Tips and headcaps very lightly bumped and rubbed, a few minor abrasions to front board, small indentation to top edge of rear, customary mild spotting to prelims and advertisements. An excellent copy. First edition of Speke's account of his momentous discovery of Lakes Victoria and Tanganyika, undoubtedly less common that his Journal of the Discovery of the Source of the Nile, especially so in collector's condition. Although it was published the year after the Journal, this work documents the first expedition arranged by the Royal Geographical Society, during which his corrosive rift with Burton first developed over Speke's disputed sighting of Victoria. Speke "had the choice in What Led … of escalating the quarrel or letting things stand as they were. In the event, he did not dramatically change the status quo, but neither did he let slip some chances to challenge Burton further, especially in his account of how he happened to go alone to the Victoria Nyanza" (Carnochan, The Sad Story of Burton, Speke, and the Nile, p. 62).

        THE DICTIONARY OF MEDICAL AND SURGICAL KNOWLEDGE And complete practical guide in health and disease for families, emigrants, and colonists

      Houlston and Sons 1864 - Early issue. Publisher's quarter red roan over green cloth boards with gilt decoration and lettering to the upper board and spine. Marbled page edges. A near fine copy, with some marks to the boards but otherwise tight and well presented. Copious black and white engravings throughout the text. Originally published in monthly parts as part of Philp's popular Enquire Within And Reason Why series, this dictionary was first published in one collected volume in 1864 with the aim "to put Families, Colonists, and Emigrants in possession of a strictly Domestic Work of Medical Usefulness, in which the Treatment of all Diseases and Accidents should be placed before them in a plain and intelligible form." On the medical uses of champagne, for example, Philp writes "though useful as an occasional stimulant in cases of nervous depression, champagne can hardly be called an invalid's beverage". Claret, on the other hand, "can frequently be taken with impunity." [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1864 - 1864 Wisden : Paperback with Facsimile Spine and Covers

      1864. Hi, This is a Wisden from the Adrian Ellis Collection. 1864 : Paperback with facsimile Spine and Covers - 1st Edition! This Wisden was first listed as a rebind, it was from the Auty collection and hence we thought it was a valid listing with the Auty boards, however the binding wasputting pressure on the frist 2 pages and they were starting to tear down the line of the binding which was 1cm into the book and hence we took the book out of the binding and added facimile covers and a spine and touched up the small tear that was appearing. We have kept the Auty page if needed. The covers and spine are very well made and internally the book is nice and clean, there is some rounding to the pages and the last page has a small loss to the top of it as can be seen in the pictures. A small tear was forming thanks to the binding to the first 2 pages, this has been repaired.

One of 1,650 copies. Publisher's purple cloth boards decoratively stamped in blind and lettered in gilt, brown-coated endpapers with previous owner's bookplate to front pastedown and small sticker from previous bookseller to same. A very near fine copy with light wear and sunning to spine as well as some mild toning to edges of text block, otherwise a clean and bright interior in a sturdy binding. BAL 20113. The Maine Woods is a posthumously published collection of three essays related to Thoreau's travels and experiences in the Maine woodlands. Specifically, this volume contains the essays "Ktaadn," "Chesuncook," and "The Allegash and East Branch." Additionally, it includes a brief appendix that contains Thoreau's notes on the varieties of plants and animals one might encounter in the Maine woods as well as some suggestions about proper attire for the region and a helpful glossary of Native American phrases. In these essays, Thoreau relates adventures as an early observer of Maine, which he visited three times from 1846-1857. Thoreau recounts experiences climbing Mount Katahdin (Maine's tallest mountain) and Mount Kineo and visiting Grand Lake Matagamon and Chamberlain Lake. Throughout the text, Thoreau explores man's relationship to and effect on the wilderness. Blanck notes that only some copies of the first printing include the publisher's catalog, and that "BAL has not seen a copy of the true 1st printing with this list not priced."

        Beiträge zur Kenntniss der Poesie der Alten Araber

      Hannover: Carl Rümpler,, 1864. Octavo. Original buff paper wrappers printed in black, edges untrimmed. Frequent Arabic types. From the library of British Arabist and colonial agent Colonel Samuel Barrett Miles (1838-1914), with printed bookplate noting his widow's bequest of the collection to Bath Public Library in 1920, and associated manuscript shelf-marks and blind-stamps as usual. Wrappers marked and with a few expertly repaired tears, occasional pale spotting, a few gatherings loose (apparently never bound in), and several unopened. A very good copy. First edition of this foundational study of early Arabic poetry. Nöldeke worked almost entirely from unpublished manuscripts holdings in the libraries of Berlin, Gotha, and Leiden. His account discusses the Mu'allaqat, the Lamiyat al-'Arab of al-Shanfarah, Ibn Qutaybah's Tabaqat al-Shu'ara', and works by lesser-known figures such as Arabian Jews and Mutammim ibn Nuwayrah, many of which are printed in the original Arabic. Nöldeke (1836-1930) was one of the greatest Semitists of the 19th century. He also wrote a highly influential study of the Qur'an, and numerous grammars. One of his main theses was that much early Arabic poetry was written at a later date. Uncommon: no copies traced at auction.

        The Federalist; a Commentary on the Constitution of the United States (ed By John C Hamilton)

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1864. Thick Octavo. First Lippincott edition. Frontispiece, clvx, 659 pp., vi pp. index. Bibliographic References, Edited with important notes by John C. Hamilton (son of Alexander Hamilton). Max Beloff of Oxford considered this the most important edition both for its text and the introductory essay by John C. Hamilton. In those 138 preliminary pages, the issues of the authorship of the papers is detailed with thoroughness. The preliminary essays on how the Articles of Confederation were developed along with the failure of the Baltimore efforts are dealt with here. This volume was issued during the last year of the Civil War since it was obvious to most (not all those who subscribed to The Lost Cause) was that the Union would survive and the sources of the political thought that came from the combined efforts of Hamilton, Madison (whose dependence on Jefferson caused him to deny some with which he was clearing the author) and the work of John Jay are all captured here. (see Adair, The Disputed Federalist Papers for a further account). This then became the edition scholars and politicians came to refer to at the end of the Civil War. Since the editor added earlier papers by his father under the title of "The Constitutionalist" as well as Hamilton's first "Plan of Government" which was read before the Convention in Philadelphia, this helps place the major work into the historical context. Bound in publisher's brown cloth, spine lettering gilt, brown coated endpapers, early repair to spine ends, Internally clean. A very good copy.

Imprimerie de L. Toinon et Cie à Saint-Germain 1 volume in-8 (21,5 x 14 cm) de LIX-462 page. Reliure plein maroquin bleu nuit à gros grain, dos à nerfs avec auteur, titre doré et millésime, filet à froid en encadrement des plats, tranches dorées sur marbrure, doublure de papier peigne dans un encadrement de maroquin orné d'un jeu de filets et roulettes dorés, la couverture imprimée n'a pas été conservée. Reliure de l'époque non signée mais d'une belle finesse d'exécution. Reliure et intérieur très frais. A noter une infime cicatrice de mouillure à peine visible au bas de quelques feuillets seulement, infimes frottements à la reliure. Très bel exemplaire. DOUZIÈME ÉDITION ET DERNIÈRE ÉDITION COMPLÈTE IDENTIQUE A l'ÉDITION ORIGINALE ET NON EXPURGÉE DE PLUSIEURS PASSAGES. La première édition a été mise en vente le 22 mai 1863. La 12e édition (celle-ci) est de 1864. Elle a été mise à l'Index aussitôt cette douzième édition parue. Le tirage total est estimé à plus de 168.000 exemplaires dès fin 1864, ce qui en fait un véritable best-seller de son temps ! Les éditions qui suivront (1867, 1870 et suivantes) seront amputées de passages litigieux. Ernest Renan aborde la vie du Christ en historien. Il le dépouille de toute son aura mystique et divine pour en faire un personnage de chair et de sang. "Cette conception d'un Christ romantique, philosophe incomparable, avait été renforcée par le séjour au Liban et en Galilée où il avait trouvé dans la nature et les gens "un cinquième évangile" comblant les insuffisances de la documentation historique de Jésus. L'imagination du poète-écrivain a fait de son livre une œuvre d'art qui survit aux critiques des historiens plus radicaux qui l'ont suivi." (Roger Pierrot, En français dans le texte, 285). Ce livre fit immédiatement scandale. Le pape Pie IX, très affecté, traita Renan de « blasphémateur européen », et en 1864, le ministre de l'Instruction publique Victor Duruy supprima son cours. "Même ceux qui ne croyaient pas en lui étaient frappés de ces actes et cherchaient à en être témoins. Les païens et les gens peu initiés éprouvaient un sentiment de crainte, et cherchaient à l'éconduire de leur canton. Plusieurs songeaient peut-être à abuser de son nom pour des mouvements séditieux. Mais la direction toute morale et nullement politique du caractère de Jésus le sauvait de ces entraînements. Son royaume à lui était dans le cercle d'enfants qu'une pareille jeunesse d'imagination et un même avant-goût du ciel avaient groupés et retenaient autour de lui." in Vie de Jésus, Miracles, Chap. XVI. On comprendra mieux la mise à l'Index par Rome dont cet ouvrage fit l'objet en citant cet extrait significatif de l'ensemble : "La vie de Jésus, pour l’historien, finit avec son dernier soupir. Mais telle était la trace qu’il avait laissée dans le cœur de ses disciples et de quelques amies dévouées que, durant des semaines encore, il fut pour eux vivant et consolateur. Son corps avait-il été enlevé, ou bien l’enthousiasme, toujours crédule, fit-il éclore après coup l’ensemble de récits par lesquels on chercha à établir la foi à la résurrection ? C’est ce que, faute de documents contradictoires, nous ignorerons à jamais. Disons cependant que la forte imagination de Marie de Magdala joua dans cette circonstance un rôle capital. Pouvoir divin de l’amour ! moments sacrés où la passion d’une hallucinée donne au monde un Dieu ressuscité !" (Extrait du chapitre XXVI, Jésus au Tombeau).

        A collection of documents relating to the career of Peter Frederik Koch (1832-1907), sometime Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Denmark, and his son Svend Koch (1867-1943), an engineer and Member of Parliament

      The archive includes: (A) Five documents (foolscap folio, each one a bifolium, dated 1864, 1871, 1878, 1885 and 1897, with the florid printed introduction: 'Vi Christian den Niende, af Guds Naade Konge til Danmark ...') completed in a secretarial hand and signed 'Christian R' (Christian IX, King of Denmark from 1863 to 1906), with his paper-covered wax seal, confirming Koch's appointment as judge in various Danish courts, with the last marking his investiture as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court (Højesteretsjustitiarius). Together with seven letters on Justitsministeriet stationery relating to these appointments, signed by various officials in the Ministry. (B) Five documents issued by the Chancery of Orders (foolscap folio, each one a bifolium, dated 1880, 1887, 1888, 1892 and 1900), each with the paper-covered wax seal of the Order of the Elephant, investing Koch into various Danish orders, culminating with the Grand Cross of the Dannebrog. Each one is accompanied by a group of documents and correspondence (printed and manuscript), including information on the orders and material for the investiture ceremonies. (C) Koch's certificate of admission to the University of Copenhagen and four academic transcripts relating to his time there. (D) A group of seven documents addressed to Koch (six on Justitsministeriet stationery), apparently relating to his work as a judge. (E) Two documents issued by the Chancery of Orders (foolscap folio, each one a bifolium, dated 1911 and 1927), each with the paper-covered wax seal of the Order of the Elephant, investing Svend Koch in two levels in the Order of the Dannebrog, together with a group of letters and documents (some duplicates) relating to the investitures. (F) A collection of approximately 35 letters addressed to Svend Koch (mainly typed and signed, dated between 1906 and 1937) relating to his work as an engineer and municipal council member, together with the retained duplicate copies of 17 typed letters sent in reply, initialled by Koch (all dated September 1928). (G) Five further documents, including Svend Koch's certificate of admission to the University of Copenhagen, his will (sealed and dated 1895), two duplicate contracts for engineering work and a document with the paper seal of the City of Copenhagen, signed (apparently) by ten city councillors. Many of the items have been folded for storage or posting, and several have short edge tears and uneven creases, but overall, the collection is in excellent condition.
