        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Genf, 6. IV. 1865.. 1 S., 8°.. An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - Vogt wirkte nach seiner Einbürgerung in der Schweiz als Reformer der Universität Genf. Im Materialismusstreit war Vogt ein wesentlicher Vertreter des naturwissenschaftlichen Materialismus. Er trat entschieden für Darwins Evolutionstheorie ein und wird von diesem in der Einleitung seines Buchs "Die Abstammung des Menschen und die geschlechtliche Zuchtwahl" namentlich erwähnt. --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde.

        Archive collection of Elfego Baca Material

      Various. Paper/Ephermera. Very Good. Small archive of material related to the activities of Elfego Baca, (February 10, 1865 - August 27, 1945). Baca was a gunman, lawman, lawyer, detective and politician in and around Socorro, NM from the 1880's thru the 1930's. Any one of his vocations might had led him to fame but his legend was sealed early in his career because of the Frisco Shootout, or Baca's Battle of 1884. Baca, quite likely a self-deputized deputy sheriff, arrested a cowboy for drunkenness, which led to the death of a fellow cowboy. Hot heads prevailed and legend has it over 80 cowboys surrounded the house Baca holed up and laid siege for over 30 hours firing hundreds if not thousands of shots at the house. Baca survived this punishment and indeed killed four of his attackers. Upon surrender a trial acquitted Baca of murder leaving him later to become sheriff of Socorro County, a U.S. Marshall, county clerk, mayor and school superintendent of Socorro County, and district attorney for Socorro and Sierra counties. Leon Metz, his biographer states, "Elfego was, and is, controversial. He drank too much; talked too much ... he had a weakness for wild women. He was often arrogant and, of course, he showed no compunction about killing people." Archival material includes: -Tintype of Baca with handwritten provenance. Circa 1881 -Subpoena to appear at Baca's murder trial for Josepha Armijo dated April 18th, 1885. -Legal notice from 1894 when Baca was probate clerk in Socorro County. -Certificade de Nombraumiento (Certificate of Appointment) signed by Baca as witness, April 1894 -Mortgage signed by Baca as Recorder of Socorro county, NM with promissory note, February, 1895 -Letterhead of La Opinion Publica, Official Spanish Paper of Bernalillo County. Elfego Baca President. Typed letter to Judge M.C. Mechem, signed by manager J.R. McGuinness. October 1911. -Plea of abatement signed by Baca as Attorney for Defendant, 1913 -TLS to Judge Mechem signed by Baca on his letterhead as Attorney and Counsellor at Law, 1913. -Another TLS to same dated 1914. -Campaign brochure for Elfego Baca for Judge of the Second Judicial district of Bernalillo and Sandoval counties, no date.

        Only a few months after Appomattox Longstreet complains of the injury to his hand sustained at the Wilderness: <i>"a crippled a[r]m cramps me very much, and I [cann]ot but feel that it has a tenden[cy t]o cramp my ideas, or the expression of them also," </i>while seeking a pardon for a fellow confederate. He would do this by writing to General Grant

      Autograph Letter Signed,"James Longstreet," 1 page, 8" x 10" in pencil, Macon, Mississippi, August 30, 1865, to former Confederate Major Thomas Klugh Jackson, concerning his difficulty in composing a letter to General Ulysses Grant seeking a pardon on his behalf. Losses affecting several words in text expertly in-filled, expected folds, else good condition. Longstreet writes in full: "I have written you letter in pencil but cannot use a pen with my left hand. Nor have I any one to call upon to copy it with ink that [I] may sign it. I therefore en[close] it to you [not present] that you may get some friend to [p]ut it in ink and send it up for my signatu[r]e. I would also suggest that you s[u]b[m]it the letter to Judge Beauchamp and get [h]im to add to it or take from it anything [t]hat have a tendency to help you. Writing [w]ith my left hand and a crippled a[r]m cramps me very much, and I [cann]ot but feel that it has a tenden[cy t]o cramp my ideas, or the expression of them also[.]" Longstreet was writing with his left hand as his right arm had been temporarily paralyzed following a wound he received at the Battle of the Wilderness in May 1864. Although he rejoined Lee's Army of Northern Virginia within several months (learning to ride a horse with his left hand), he did not regain the use of his right hand for several years after the war's conclusion. Because of his temporary handicap, Longstreet requested that Jackson have someone copy his letter in ink and return to him for his signature. Jackson did just that, and when Longstreet's final letter reached Grant in October 1865, the general endorsed the recommendation to the Attorney General, requesting that a "pardon be speedily granted..." to Jackson. After which Grant went a step further and endorsed Longstreet's arguments advocating clemency for officers who had resigned their commissions at the opening of the war: "I think it is now time when some pardons should be extended to officers who left the old Army. As a rule they are a class who will keep any obligation...." In his letter, Longstreet had observed that when he had resigned his own commission at the start of the war, "I asked some officers from the northern states, who advised me not to resign, whether they would resign if their states had done a mine had done. They invariably admitted that they would return to their states. Yet all of these officers have served in your army during the war and some with considerable distinction. And are accepted as the truest and bravest in your great army. Let me appeal to you then to determine whether there is justice or honor in pursuing a fellow for whose only crime is error of judgment, and who now sues for pardon. Besides, it is my humble opinion that the terms granted by you at the surrender of Genl. Lee, extended, to all of us, the benefits of the Amnesty Proclamation of President Lincoln of 1863. Those terms were approved by President Lincoln and are therefore irrevocable." Unfortunately for Jackson, the pardon was delayed for several months as his case languished amidst the crush of other amnesty claims. Finally, on February 14, 1867, Attorney General Henry Stanbery recommended that Jackson be pardoned. President Johnson granted the pardon the following day. (NARA M619. Letters received by the Adjutant General's Office, 1860-70, during and after the Civil War period. Roll 0032, File J85, NARA Cat ID: 300368). A copy of Grant's endorsement, together with a copy of Longstreet's final letter are included for reference. James Longstreet and Ulysses Grant were fellow West Point classmates, both graduating in 1843. Following school, the two remained close, serving together for sometime at Jefferson Barracks, Missouri. A few years on, Longstreet attended Grant's 1848 wedding in St. Louis. During the Civil War, Grant and Longstreet faced each other at the Wilderness in 1864 where the latter received the wound to his right arm. Following the war Longstreet remained close to Grant endorsing him for president in 1868 (and attending his inauguration) and earning the distinction of the only former senior Confederate officer to join the Republican Party. Thomas Klugh Jackson (1828-1902), born and raised in South Carolina, entered the United States Military Academy at West Point in July 1844 receiving his second lieutenant's commission in 1849. He served in several posts including Texas and New Mexico, including service with the U.S. Boundary Commission and the 8th U.S. Infantry (where he served alongside Longstreet). Rising to first lieutenant in 1855, he did a brief stint at West Point teaching infantry tactics before moving to Texas where he worked as a recruiter. At the outbreak of the war, Jackson obtained commission from the State of South Carolina and resigned his U.S. commission on April 1, 1861. During the Civil War he served as Albert Sidney Johnston's chief commissary before being captured at Fort Donelson. Following his exchange, Jackson continued service as a commissary first in Gainesville, Alabama and later in Grenada Mississippi. Following the war he settled in Gainesville as a merchant and a farmer.

        Coleoptera Atlantidum, being an enumeration of the coleopterous insects of the Madeiras, Salvages, and Canaries.

      - London, John van Voorst, 1865. Thick 8vo. xlvii, 526, 140 pp., one engraved map. Publisher's blind-stamped cloth with gilt title on the spine.l The first monograph on the beetles of what is collectively known as the northern Macaronesian islands in the temperate-subtropical North Atlantic. The material was mostly collected by the author. As could be expected from rather isolated island-faunas most species described in this work are endemic. Thomas Vernon Wollaston (1822-1878) FLS published a series of eight island faunal studies, the others being on the insects of Madeira (published in 1854), the Coleoptera of Madeira in the British Museum (1857), ditto those of the Canaries (1864), and those of the Cape Verde Islands (1867), on the landshells of the Atlantic islands (1878), and on the variation of species, with especial reference to the insecta (1858). The last mentioned paper in particular is an important contribution to evolution. However, Wollaston, concluded from his researches that species were created under a divine plan to best suit local circumstances. Published in the year previous to Darwin's "On the origin of species", it was kindly received by Darwin. In turn, Wollaston, who could not shed his religious beliefs, published quite a negative review of Darwin's work.Thereafter sympathy between both men although working on much the same subject deteriorated slowly but steadily. The present work is dedicated to the British zoologist (in particular malacologist and cetaceologist) John [Edward] Gray (1800-1875), keeper of zoology of the British Museum in London, ".In whose yacht I first visited the Canarian Archipelago.". This study was based on over 20,000 specimens, belonging to 1,449 species described earlier, mostly by Wollaston himself but including at least seventy new species, described here in the 140 pp. appendix. Joints expertly repaired, an excellent and clean copy. Very rare. Horn-Schenkling II(4), p. 453. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Pinus sabiniana. Douglas. (Gray, Foothill or Digger Pine)

      Edinburgh & London, 1865. Hand-coloured lithograph. Sheet size: 21 1/2 x 15 3/4 inches. A very fine plate from Ravenscroft's 'The Pinetum Britannicum. A Descriptive Account of Hardy Coniferous Trees' Ravenscroft's work is the third (in order of publication) of the three great coniferous iconographies of the nineteenth century, following Bedford and Lambert. The very fine plates fall into two categories: botanical studies of details of the needles and fruit of the individual trees, and landscape studies of examples of individual trees in their natural habitat. This plate is an outstanding example of the former group, here drawn and lithographed by W. Richardson. Cf. Nissen BBI 1588; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p.127; cf. Stafleu & Cowan 8685.

Volkmann's "Ischemic Paralysis and Contractures" is one of his lesser contributions, but his best known eponym. --- During the siege of Paris, as a German army officer occupying a French chateau and waiting for the surrender, Volkmann used his leisure to prepare his Reveries at French Firesides, comprising short stories written for children but also widely read by adults.. The book was published under the pseudonym Richard Leander, the hellenized form of his name. - He was born in Leipzig and spent six years in the famous Fürstenschule at Grima. At the age of 20 years he began his study of medicine at Halle, where his father A.W. Volkmann held the cheir of physiology from 1843 until 1877. In 1867 he became full professor and head of the surgical clinic in Halle. - He wrote the section on locomotor disorders in this famous surgical textbook, in which he noted that the improvement after forcible 'reduction' of congenital dislocation of the hip was not necessarly due to actual reposition of the femoral head. He desribed 'caries sicca', a slow dry tuberculous destruction of bone without caseation, he also seems to have described acute transient synovits of the hip in children, and Key credited him with first distinguishing the joint affections of haemophilia from rheumatism. - David Le Vay.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift ("Plücker").

      Bonn, 25. V. 1865.. 4 S., 8°.. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - "[...] Gemeinsam mit Heinrich Geißler schuf Plücker die Voraussetzung zur modernen Vakuumtechnik. Seine Grundlagenforschungen sind später für die Atomforschung wichtig geworden. In der Mathematik erfand er die Liniengeometrie, in der ein Punkt durch die durch ihn hindurchgehenden Geraden charakterisiert wird, und arbeitete über algebraische Kurven sowie deren Singularitäten. Nach ihm benannt sind die Plücker-Matrix und Plücker-Koordinaten zur eindeutigen Repräsentation von Geraden sowie die "Plückerschen Formeln", die eine einfache Relation zwischen den Anzahlen spezieller Punkte einer Kurve herstellen. In der Kombinatorik lieferte er eine der frühesten Beschreibungen von Blockplänen (er konstruierte S (2,3,9) in seinem Buch System der analytischen Geometrie von 1835). Er führte Regelflächen ein und eine spezielle Regelfläche (Plücker Konoid) ist nach ihm benannt. In der Physik beschäftigte er sich unter anderem mit dem Magnetismus der Kristalle sowie mit elektrischen Entladungen im Vakuum. 1858 entdeckte er die Kathodenstrahlen. Seit 1855 gehörte er als auswärtiges Mitglied der Royal Society an, mit deren Copley Medal er 1866 ausgezeichnet wurde [...]" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. -
