        LES EVANGILES DES DIMANCHES ET FÊTES DE L'ANNEE.

      1864Paris, Léon Curmer, 1864-1872. Trois parties reliées en deux forts volumes in-4 de maroquin rouge, plats ornés d'un double encadrement de maroquin grenat avec décor de fleurons à froid, dos à nerfs à compartiments fleuronnés, doublures et gardes de moire verte, les doublures encadrées d'une large dentelle dorée, tranches dorées, double filet doré sur les coupes, étuis bordés (reliure signée dans la dentelle Adolphe Bertrand). Les deux volumes sont entièrement montés sur onglets. Les deux premières parties réunies dans le premier volume reproduisent en chromolithographie environ 400 planches de miniatures enluminées d'après des livres d'heures. La troisième partie qui contient le descriptif savant de l'illustration est illustrée de centaines de bois gravés en noir. Cette édition de grand luxe illustrée par la nouvelle technique de la chromolithographie est une des réalisations majeures de Curmer. Les deux volumes sont entièrement montés sur onglet ce qui rend la lecture particulièrement agréable. Selon Fléty, le relieur Adolphe Bertrand (92, rue de l'école de Médecine) occupait en 1865 un personnel assez nombreux et s'était spécialisé dans la reliure de livres liturgiques. Son épouse qui le secondait activement, était une descendante de Bradel. Très beaux exemplaires.

        Histoire de la Grèce, depuis les temps les plus reculés jusqu'à la fin de la Génération Contemporaine d'Alexandre Le Grand. Traduit de l'anglais par A.-L. Sadous. Seule édition française autorisée par l'auteur. Avec Cartes et Plans.

      Paris Lacroix, Verboeckhoven et Cie 1864-1867 19 vol. in-8, tables, index (tome XIX), demi-toile bleue (reliure de l'époque). Première édition française dans la traduction d'Alfred de Sadous. L'édition originale anglaise a paru en douze volumes à Londres, de 1846 à 1856. L'historien anglais George Grote (1794-1871), lié à Bentham et John Mill, fondateurs de l'école du radicalisme philosophique représenté par la Westminster Review dont il fut le collaborateur, se retira en 1843 de la banque et de la politique pour se consacrer à ses travaux sur la Grèce antique. « The work was received with universel acclamation, translated into French and German, and shaped the European conception of classical Hellas throughout the nineteen century. Grote's idealistic over-estimation of democraty and his neglect of social and economic factors eventually killed the book. It still remains a monument of Victorian scholarship, and the source of the ideal of the noble and the good which colored the Victorian tradition of political and educational thought » (PMM). 14 plans et cartes hors-texte.Printing and the Mind of Man, 507, pour l'édition originale ; Blackmer, 1284, pour la quatrième édition anglaise de 1862. Très bon exemplaire.

In 1862 London had hosted the Great London Exposition as a follow up to the Great Exhibition of 1851. 28,000 exhibitors attended from 36 countries, each showcasing industry, technology, and the arts. The British public had been thrilled by the marvels of the original exhibition, and their apetite for further insight into the industrial age still seemed significant. These volumespresent to the public in a series of articles the principles by which the machines they would have been able to view at these exhibition were built and operated. They are a fascinating testament to the technological capability of Western civilisation at that point in time. Examples of articles include: On Water Power Turbines, Outlines of Agricultural Engineering, and Tools & Their Principles. Collated from Copac: all 48 plates appear to be present. XXXIV at first glance appears to be missing, but there are two numbered XXXVIII with different contents. It seems one plate has been incorrectly numbered. The plates are not in order.

Overall appears complete. Condition: In the orginal cardboard wraps. Externally quite worn. The binding has failed on volumes one and two, and with respect to these volumes the wraps themselves are chipped, as well as showing closed tears. The pages are a little age toned. Generally unfoxed and not spotted,but with stains or watermarks here and there throughout, particularly to the plates. The plates are nonetheless alllegible and sharp. In volume 3 the binding is loosening in places. Volumes 4 to 8 are generall firmly bound. Overall: GOOD ONLY.

        Des couleurs et de leurs applications aux Arts industriels à l'aide des cercles chromatiques

      Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière et fils, 1864. de 26, (2) pages et 27 planches percaline rouge de l'éditeur, titre doré sur le plat supérieur et en long du dos 1864, 1864, in-folio, de 26, (2) pages et 27 planches, percaline rouge de l'éditeur, titre doré sur le plat supérieur et en long du dos, Première édition, rare. C'est sûrement la plus rare de toutes les publications d'Eugène Chevreul sur la couleur. Il y développe les résultats pratiques qu'il avait obtenus pour définir et dénommer les couleurs. On y rencontre aussi, exposée pour la première fois, la manière dont on peut obtenir à volonté, suivant un procédé bien déterminé, les dégradations successives de plusieurs couleurs qui ici ont été notées au crayon sur les planches des 13 gammes chromatiques : gris, violet rouge, rouge orangé, orange, orangé jaune, jaune, jaune vert, vert, vert bleu, bleu, bleu violet, violet et rouge. Outre les 13 planches des gammes chromatiques, Chevreul reprend dans ce traité les 14 planches en couleur de l'atlas qui accompagnait l'Exposé d'un moyen de définir et de nommer les couleurs (1861). Les 27 planches furent gravées par René Digeon et imprimées en couleurs par Lamoureux. Bon exemplaire, en dépit des quelques rousseurs habituelles, dans sa reliure d'origine

        A chapter on street nuisances.

      John Murray, London 1864 - The Origins of Babbage's Reputation for IrrascibilityBabbage, Charles. A chapter on street nuisances. Extracted from "Passages from the life of a philosopher." London: John Murray, 1864. Modern quarter calf, marbled boards. Light browning, occasional foxing. 32pp. 207 x 123 mm. Second edition. Toward the end of his life, Babbage began conducting his celebrated battle with street musicians-"Organs, brass bands, fiddlers, harps, Punch [and Judy shows], pantomime, monkeys, military, dancing and musical, athletes, ladies and gentlemen walking on stilts" (quoted in Hyman 1982, 247)-whose invasion of his once-quiet neighborhood was seriously disturbing his peace. Unable and unwilling to abandon his home of nearly forty years and his extensive workshops housed nearby, Babbage fought back against the street performers in every way possible, having several of them arrested, attacking them in print, and helping to get an act passed in Parliament "for the better regulation of Street Music within the Metropolitan Police District." This final public crusade of Babbage's life made him the butt of ridicule, and left him with a reputation for eccentricity and irascibility that persisted for over a century after his death. This reputation turns out to have been at least partly undeserved, however. In 1983 Babbage's autopsy report was rediscovered among some family papers; it shows Babbage to have suffered from a form of arterial disease that is now known to cause degeneration of the inner ear, resulting in a hearing disorder. This might have been the source of Babbage's acute sensitivity to noise and intolerance of discordant disturbances (Swade 2000, 213-14).Although the "Chapter" is advertised as an extract from Babbage's Passages from the Life of a Philosopher (see no. 84), both the first and second editions were published in advance of the book. These two editions appeared under the imprint of John Murray, who was also planning to publish the Passages, until his objection to a slightly off-color anecdote in the book caused him to pull out at the last minute. A third edition of the "Chapter" was issued by Longman, the eventual publisher of the Passages. Van Sinderen 1980, no. 76. Extremely rare! When we last checked OCLC cited two copies of the third edition and no copies of the first or second edition. Origins of Cyberspace 83. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [VIEWS IN CENTRAL PARK. (with:) NEW YORK STREET SCENES]

      [Boston: Manufactured by L. Prang & Co., 1864. Central Park: Thirty-six chromolithographic cards, each 4 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches. Tipped to three album sheets. Street Scenes: Twelve chromolithographic cards, each 4 1/4 x 2 1/2 inches, tipped to matching album sheet. Light soiling or foxing to a few images. Near fine. A marvelous collection of thirty-six chromolithographic views of New York City's Central Park, issued by the renowned firm of Louis Prang and Company. In 1864, Prang issued numerous series of cards, often showing nature scenes, and meant to be collected and tipped into albums. Among these series, one of the rarest is the present series of thirty-six views of Central Park. When these cards were issued Central Park was still a new attraction in New York City. In 1857 a competition had been announced to submit designs for the park, and the winning entry was the "Greensward Plan" submitted by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux. The park opened later in 1857. This collection contains views of some of the most famous places in the park, including The Ramble and the Boat Landing. The scenes in this collection are: 1) "The Island." 2) "The Rustic Bridge." 3) "Entrance to Cave." 4) "The Lake." 5) "Rustic Arbor." 6) "The Brook." 7) "Moonlight on the Lake." 8) "Cascade." 9) "The Arch." 10) "The Ramble." 11) "Boat Landing." 12) "Marble Bridge Over the Lake." 13) "Rude Stairway." 14) "Abode of the Swans." 15) "The Silver Lake." 16) "Entrance to Cave From the Lake." 17) "The Tower." 18) "Ornamental Bridge." 19) "The Drive." 20) "The Bridle Path." 21) "The Music Temple." 22) "Sunset on the Lake." 23) "Rustic Arbor." 24) "A Glimpse of the Lake." 25) "The Marble Bridge." 26) "Vine Arbor." 27) "Bust of Schiller." 28) "The Fountain." 29) "On the Ramble, near the Lake." 30) "Fancy Bridge No. 14." 31) "The Casino." 32) "Bridge at the 7th Avenue Entrance." 33) "The Cove." 34) "Rustic Bower." 35) "Rustic Arbor." 36) "Evening on the Lake." Prang followed the present three series of Central Park views, with another two series issued in 1869. Any of the cards in the Central Park series are among the rarest of Prang cards. With the Central Park series is another early Prang series, depicting street scenes and characters of New York. These charming images capture the spirit of the metropolis at the beginning of the Gilded Age. They are: 1) "Street Musician." 2) "The Drum Major." 3) "Emigrants Just Arrived." 4) "Muddy Street." 5) "The Fruit Pedlar." 6) "The Old Coin Merchant." 7) "The Street Singers." 8) "Walking Advertisement Balloon Seller." 9) "The Convoy Over Broadway." 10) "On Broadway." 11) "French Nurse." 12) "Newspaper Boy 'Tribune Sir?'" An amusing collection of images of the sort of people who would have been found in Central Park in the 1860s.

        History of the Brooklyn and Long Island Fair, February 22, 1864 (Sanitary Fair)

      Brooklyn, New York: The Executive Committee (of the Brooklyn and Long Island Fair), 1864. Original. Hardcover. VG- clean, tight contents (single word added to title, in pencil, on title page); some age toning to end papers; book store label inside front cover (Shepard Book Company in Salt Lake City); fountain pen ink stains to covers in spots; fading to spine. Red embossed cloth; gilt lettering. 189 pp. with 2 folding plans and no other illustrations. "The Brooklyn and Long Island (Sanitary) Fair of 1864 is especially important in the history of the mid-19th-century Sanitary Movement and the contributions of women to the movement. A doll, made by a woman named Eliza Lefferts and featuring an elaborate trousseau, was sold at the Brooklyn Sanitary Fair of 1864. (This rare doll is now in the collection of the Brooklyn Museum of Art.) During the Civil War, sanitary fairs were held to raise money for the war effort in major cities in the Northeast. These large-scale fairs were social events that combined entertainment, education, and philanthropy. Although the U.S. Sanitary Commission was headed by men, most of its work was accomplished by thousands of women volunteers. In Brooklyn, civic-minded women's organizations orchestrated the hugely successful Brooklyn Sanitary Fair, a separate event from the New York Sanitary Fair. It raised $400,000, well over the projected $100,000 and equal to more than four million dollars by today's standards. The money was used for clothing, food, medical supplies, and other provisions for the Union Army." - (excerpted and adapted from www.brooklynmuseum.org) / This particular volume covers the background of the fair, particulars of the opening day (parade, decorations, bazaar, art gallery, Knickerbocker Hall, etc.), the opening night program, The Calico Ball, the museum, towns of Long Island, Acknowledgment to the Press, and much more. Nearly half of this volume consists of appendices: committees, churches, fair officers, contributions and donations, catalogue of items in the museum, list of "auxiliary entertainments on behalf of the fair," correspondence, and a treasurer's report. An amazing bit of history, well-preserved, about an important aspect of Brooklyn and Long Island life. Extremely rare.

        Des couleurs et de leurs applications aux Arts industriels à l'aide des cercles chromatiques

      Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière et fils, 1864. de 26, (2) pages et 27 planches percaline verte de l'époque 1864, 1864, in-folio, de 26, (2) pages et 27 planches, percaline verte de l'époque, Première édition, rare, portant la signature autographe de Chevreul et une note autographe d'Arthur Liébaut, ingénieur des Arts et manufactures, spécialiste des machines à vapeur et de leurs applications à l'agriculture, témoignant et attestant que "Monsieur Chevreul, âgé de cent ans et demi, a signé ce livre, en [sa] présence, le Dimanche 6 mars 1887, et [l']a chargé de le remettre, de sa part, à Monsieur Gaston Tissandier, comme témoignage de haute estime pour ses travaux scientifiques et pour son admirable courage". Il s'agit probablement de la plus rare de toutes les publications d'Eugène Chevreul sur la couleur. Il y développe les résultats pratiques qu'il avait obtenus pour définir et dénommer les couleurs. On y rencontre aussi, exposée pour la première fois, la manière dont on peut obtenir à volonté, suivant un procédé bien déterminé, les dégradations successives de plusieurs couleurs qui ici ont été notées au crayon sur les planches des 13 gammes chromatiques : gris, violet rouge, rouge orangé, orange, orangé jaune, jaune, jaune vert, vert, vert bleu, bleu, bleu violet, violet et rouge. Outre les 13 planches des gammes chromatiques, Chevreul reprend dans ce traité les 14 planches en couleur de l'atlas qui accompagnait l'exposé d'un moyen de définir et de nommer les couleurs (1861). Les 27 planches furent gravées par René Digeon et imprimées en couleurs par Lamoureux. Malgré quelques rousseurs, bon exemplaire d'une prestigieuse provenance

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED, to [Abraham Dee?] Bartlett, on stationary of the Royal Geographical Society, London, 15, Whitehall Place, December 23, 1864.

      London,: Whitehall Place. 1864. hardcover. 7x4 ½ inches. 1 page. Signed by Bates. Fine.. Written one year after his most important book, The Naturalist on the River Amazons, 1863. ¶ Text: ?Dear Bartlett, The name of the ship owners who have regular trade with Pará are / Messrs. Duarte, Potter & Co. / 2 Royal Bank Building, Liverpool. / I hear they have a vessel once a month ? - I am at home every evening till Monday ? H.W. Bates?. See: Messrs. Edward Potter, Ricardo T Duarte, Samuel W Chaddock, W. E. Potter, 2nd January 1865. See: Estell & Co., The Liverpool Commercial List, 1871-1872, sixth and seventh years. London, 1871. p.3. ¶ ?Bates and Wallace sailed from Liverpool in April 1848, arriving in Pará (now Belém) at the end of May. For the first year they settled in a villa near the city, collecting birds and insects. After that they agreed to collect independently, Bates travelling to Cametá on the Tocantins River. He then moved up the Amazon, to Óbidos, Manaus and finally to the Upper Amazon (Solimões). Tefé was his base-camp for four and a half years. His health eventually deteriorated and he returned to Britain, sending his collection by three different ships to avoid the same fate as Wallace. He spent the next three years writing his account of the trip, The Naturalist on the River Amazons, widely regarded as one of the finest reports of natural history travels.? ¶ ?Bartlett? is almost surely Abraham Dee Bartlett (1812-1897), the British taxidermist and an expert on captive animals and birds, member of the Zoological Society of London, becoming Superintendent of the Zoological Gardens. Through this position he corresponded with other world naturalists, including especially Charles Darwin. See: A.D. Bartlett & Edward Bartlett, ?Biographical notes,? Wild animals in captivity, 1898. ¶ DSB Vol. I, pp. 500-4. . 1

The days will come that war will be poured out upon all nations, beginning at that place; for behold, the Southern States shall be divided against the Northern States, and the Southern States will call on other nations, even the nation of Great Britain in order to defend themselves against other nations."

        The Photographic Historical Portrait Gallery, consisting of a series of portraits, principally from miniatures, in the most celebrated collections in England. Accompanied by copious illustrative letter-press, by Amelia B. Edwards. Volume I.

      London, Paul and Dominic Colnaghi, Scott, and Co. Hardcover. Quarter leather with marbled boards and gilt detailing along the spine and leather edges. General wear to boards with top corners being heavily frayed and minor fraying to bottom edges, rubbing to spine ends and heavy rubbing to marbled boards and some chipping to rear. 50 plates with the silver still intact and the pictures still very detailed and bright with minor toning and foxing to pages. Leonida Caldesi was born in Florence, Italy in 1823 and arrived in England as a political refugee around 1850, though whether he was a photographer at this time is not clear. His brother Vincenzo (1817-1870) served as a major on the staff of the Italian patriot and revolutionary Giuseppe Garibaldi (1807-1882). - Comparatively little is known about Caldesi's career though he was one of the leading London photographers during the 1850's and was acknowledged by contemporaries as one of the foremost photographers of fine art from the 1850's to the 1870's. This rare example of his work is in excellent condition for its age with surprising clarity in the silver photographs. If you'd like more pictures please feel free to ask. . Good. 1864.
