        On a New Geometry of Space" [Memoir] in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London 155, Part II, Received December 22, 1864; Read February 2, 1865, pp. 725-791 WITH "On a New Geometry of Space" [Abstract] Proceedings of the Royal Society of London 14, No. 72, Received December 22, 1864; Read February 2, 1865, pp. 53-58

      FIRST EDITIONS, FIRST PRINTINGS, BOTH IN ORIGINAL WRAPS, OF TWO PAPERS BY PLÜCKER RECONSTRUCTING ANALYTICAL GEOMETRY, "HERALDING THE ERA OF LINE AND PROJECTIVE GEOMETRY" and introducing the Plücker coordinates which abandoned the use of Cartesian coordinates in a plane in favor of a system of three coordinates to identify a point - a geometry based on points as basic elements (DSB, XI, 46; MAA). Plücker coordinates created "a way to assign six homogeneous coordinates to each line in projective three dimensional space" (Wikipedia). Particularly gifted at obtaining the maximum amount of geometric information from his equations, Plücker's work employed creative and unusually useful computational properties that ultimately made it exceptionally well-suited to solving a wide array of computational three dimensional problems, most especially those involving visibility and light transfer. The papers, titled exactly alike, appeared in two different journals, each received on December 22, 1864; each read on February 22, 1865. They are not, however, the same. The 6 page paper in the Proceedings is known as the 'abstract'; the 66 page paper in the Phil Trans is known as the 'memoir'. Plücker's work was later republished in 1868 in Neue Geometrie; these two papers, however, represent his first and most important publications on analytic and projective geometry. Julius Plücker was a German mathematician and physicist. [Plücker also discovered cathode rays and we offer that work separately.] Plücker's work in these papers bases "space geometry upon the self-dual straight line as element, rather than upon the point or in dual manner upon the plane as element" (DSB). He argues that the dimensionality of space depends on our choice of the elements (points, lines, planes, etc.) from which space is construed. Plücker also points out that a right line may be construed in two different ways and that, accordingly, there are two constructions of space: in one, space is traversed by lines determined by planes passing through them. The first is used in optics when luminous points are assumed to send rays in all directions, the second when instead of rays one considers wave-fronts and their consecutive intersections" (Giedymin, Science, 64; Plücker, 1865). "The leading idea of Plücker's memoir appears in the first words of his [Phil Trans paper]: "I. On linear Complexes of Right lines". He works at first with the 4 coordinates of a line; as long as these are arbitrary, the line is any line whatever; but considering them as connected by a single equation, then he says 'a Complex', considering them as connected by two equations 'a Congruency', and considering them as connected by 3 equations 'a Configuration' or ruled surface" (Cayley, Papers, 618). It is worth noting that because Plücker coordinates "satisfy a quadratic constraint, they establish a one-to-one correspondence between the 4-dimensional space of lines in P3 and points on a quadric in P5 (projective 5-space)" (Wikipedia) Though debatable, in Plücker's work "the dimensions of the space of lines is four and it is probably the first four-dimensional space that appeared in science" (Gindikin, Mathematicians and Physicists, 370). Also in Phil Trans: Cayley "On the Sextactic Points of a Plane Curve" and a paper by Spottiswoode with the same title; Roscoe's "On a Method of Meteorological Registration of the Chemical Action of Total Daylight"; Harley's "On the Influence of Physical and Chemical Agents upon Blood". Also in Proceedings: De La Rue, "Researches in Solar Physics". CONDITION & DETAILS: The Proceedings paper is an individual issue in original wrappers. Some sunning to edges, slight edge wear. Overall, very good. The Phil Trans paper is also in original wrappers, Part II of Vol. 155. Slight spotting of edges and plates; slight sunning of spine. Small bend in lower front wrapper corner. Near fine.

        SMALL ARCHIVE OF CIVL WAR LETTERS WRITTEN TO A WOUNDED MEMBER OF THE 39TH NEW YORK VOLUNTEER INFANTRY REGIMENT, THE GARIBALDI GUARD, ALONG WITH THE SOLDIER'S DISCHARGE CERTIFICATE

      Various locations, 1865. Unbound. Very good. Nine letters written to Stephen H. Gregory; eight were written during April and May of 1865 while Gregory was recovering from wounds at the Homewood Hospital in Washington D. C. The ninth letter is pre-war. Two of the letters are enclosed in mailing envelopes with indistinct postal markings; one of the envelopes is franked with a 3-cent rose Washington stamp (Scott #65), the stamp is missing from the other. Gregory's discharge certificate is also included. The letters are all in nice shape; the certificate has some storage folds and minor wear. The Garibaldi Guard was organized in New York City in the Spring of 1861 by Colonel Frederick George D'Utassy under special authority from the War Department. Initially, the unit was divided into eleven companies each primarily composed of men of different national heritage; three companies were Hungarian, three were German, one Swiss, one Italian, one French, one Spanish and one Portuguese. In the Summer of 1864 four companies (A through D) were mustered out, however a new D Company was mustered into service that October from upstate New York. Gregory, was from Lisbon, New York and joined D Company while it was being organized at Malone, New York. D Company fought in the Appomattox Campaign during March and April, and it was during this time that Private Gregory was wounded. Gregory's military records are sparse, but they do confirm that he was hospitalized for four weeks although they do not specify where or how badly he was wounded, but, based on the dates of the letters, it most have been some time in April shortly be General Lee surrendered. The letters are primarily queries from family and friends about his wound ("Stephen you had not aut to wash your wound after eny other persons wound for fear of the gang green"), his general health, "shugar making," and the death and wounding of other local soldiers, mixed with considerable hope that Stephen would soon be able to return home. One letter, however, also references the assassination of President Abraham Lincoln and the hunt for John Wilkes Booth: "las Friday they is a corpral and three privates to the depo looking for the man kiled abrham linkin and they say that they git 3000 if they git him" A nice collection of letters to a wounded soldier, clearly evidencing the love and concern of his family.

      1865. Hi, This lot is an 1865 Original Paperback Wisden. It has an expertly made facsimile spine and is an original 2nd Edition Wisden. It is in Good Condition. I was proud to own this book for years (hence how I can offer it at such a low price) but I have now purchased an original with original spine-ish so my book is up for sale, the covers here have some marks, , a bit of light staining to the front cover but not inside the book. The rear cover has some wear too. The first page has a stamp from the Sydney Pardon Estate which is a nice bonus. The spine holds the book together very well and so is tightly bound. Inside the book is nice and bright and clean, a very rare book. It is quite a bit shorter than my 1864 but so is my new replacement, must have been cut fine back then.

        Essays and Miscellaneous Pieces by the late Edward R. Stephenson. With a preface by his friend, C. Todd ..

      Adelaide, Andrews, Thomas, and Clark, 1865. Octavo, [ii, frontispiece], [ii, title leaf], vi, 118, vi (book review) pages with 2 mounted albumen paper photographs (one is a frontispiece portrait of Stephenson, 87 x 57 mm; the other is of a sketch, presumably by Stephenson, 103 x 57 mm). The book review, reprinted from the South Australian Register, December 28, 1865, has been folded down the middle before being bound in. Full morocco now expertly rebacked, all edges gilt (contemporary but probably not original - we have only seen blind-stamped cloth before); corners worn, front and rear covers a little scuffed; overall a very good copy. One of the earliest Australian imprints illustrated with original photographs (see Holden: 'Photography in Colonial Australia' [Sydney, 1988]), where it is incorrectly referred to in the text and index as Stevensen). The first essay, the St Peter's Collegiate School Prize Essay of 1864, is entitled 'The Difficulties of Colonization in the Northern Territory' (17 pages); another two pages are devoted to the importance of the acquisition of the Northern Territory to South Australia. Almost half the book (58 pages) is given over to verse by Stephenson, who died at the age of 18 in May 1865. Inscribed on an early blank, in what we know to be the hand of Charles Todd, to 'Mr Edwd Stirling Junr / Xmas 1865'; with the pictorial bookplate ['Gang forward'] of Edward Charles Stirling. Ferguson 16245; Holden 103. We have previously sold a copy inscribed by Todd to his daughter on 4 December 1865, in which the review was loosely inserted (as an eight-page pamphlet). The Christmas inscription and the inclusion of the review not published until 28 December suggest that this morocco binding came after the event.

        Boquet Album" of Mollie E. Walker

      Harris County, Georgia 1865 - Dark brown leather album with stamped gilt decorations and the words "Boquet Album" on the front cover measuring 8.5" x 6". Good only with a chipped crown, boards worn and near detaching. A Boquet Album started by Mollie Walker of Georgia just before the advent of the Civil War and continuing into the beginning of the War, with entries dated between 1856-1865. Walker collected handwritten letters, verse, poetry, essays, and floral illustrations from her friends, mostly women, stating on the first page, "my album is my garden spot, where all my friends may sow." Most of the writing is copied versions of famous texts, scripture, poems, adages, most having to do with death and the afterlife, presumably engendered by the deaths of friends and acquaintances in the War, as well as effusive essays on friendship, all dedicated to "Miss Mollie" at the beginning of the passages. A woman named Amanda writes, "lest cypress trees and willows wave, to mark the lonely spot; but all I ask to deck my grave shall be, "forget me not." Another quote dated 1865 reads, "it is not all of life to live or all of death to die."An intriguing look at the sentiments, fears, and aspirations of women during the heart of the Civil War South.

Après avoir effectué des stages à l'hôpital psychiatrique de Bicêtre, puis à La Pitié, il obtient le doctorat en médecine le 13 mai 1865 avec cette thèse sous la direction de Charles Robin, un matérialiste ami d'Auguste Comte. Sa thèse reprend les idées de Robin, qui est un adversaire du catholique bonapartiste Pasteur. Elle est ensuite publiée chez Germer Baillère en échange de la traduction par Clemenceau d'Auguste Comte and Positivism de J.S. Mill. Plus tard, lorsque Pasteur sera devenu célèbre, Clemenceau reconnaîtra de bonne grâce son erreur. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

The City of London Truss Society, a highly successful British charitable organization, began operating in 1807 and continued well into the twentieth century (Sir Geoffrey Keynes, the well-known surgeon and bibliographer, served on the Society's medical staff in the 1930s). A notice published in the Philosophical Magazine in 1813 describes the genesis of the Society: "From the great number of persons among the laboring poor who were afflicted with hernia, and for whose relief no adequate provision existed, on the 14th of October 1807 Dr. Squire, Dr. Herdman, John Taunton, the Rev. H. G. Watkins, James Horton, Michael Bartlett, Joseph Atkinson, John Middleton, John Gardner and John Whitford, met at the City Dispensary, and formed themselves into a Society 'for the relief of the ruptured poor throughout the Kingdom, the City of London Truss Society'" (Philosophical Magazine 43 [1813]: 316).John Taunton (1769-1821), surgeon to London's city dispensary, was appointed the Truss Society's first surgeon; after his death, his son John Colley Taunton took over the post, remaining there until his own death in 1858. By 1813 the Society was treating nearly 2000 patients annually; by Taunton's death in 1821 this number had increased to over 3500; and by the end of the nineteenth century the Society was employing three surgeons and seeing over 10,000 patients per year. The archive we are offering contains 65 documents, of which all but seven are handwritten. Of the 58 handwritten documents, the majority are letters to (and a few from) John Colley Taunton. The most notable correspondent represented here is physiologist and surgeon Benjamin Collins Brodie (1783-1862), whose letter to Taunton advises him on a urinary tract infection in a patient. Four of the letters are from surgeon William Kingdon (1789-1863); two of these recommend poor patients to the Society's care. 31 letters are from Samuel Cartwright (1789-1864), a dentist and one of the vice-presidents of the Truss Society; nearly all of his letters have to do with donations to the Society, and several include the exact amounts given. Another group of letters is from Mary Tanner, presumably a patient; two of these letters include prescription notes in what is presumably J. C. Taunton's hand. Also included in this archive are three of the Society's annual reports, for the years 1862-1864; a printed subscription card; and two printed invitations from the Society addressed to Walter K. Taunton. A complete calendar of the archive is included. Royal College of Surgeons, Plarr's Lives of the Fellows Online.

        LAMENTARIUM FUNUS! HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN!... JEFF DAVIS IS NO MORE [caption title]

      [Richmond, 1865. Broadside, 19 1/4 x 15 inches. Previously folded. A few short separations and small chips at edges. Tanning and light foxing. Very good. A bitingly satirical poster commemorating the downfall of the Confederacy and Jefferson Davis, evidently issued immediately after the fall of Richmond. "If ye have tears, prepare to shed them now, because JEFF hath gone to his long home, and the mourners skedaddle about the streets. The Beauty and Pride of the Confederacy hath perish in the "Last Ditch." Tell it not in Pelham! Publish it not in the Hub, lest the Daughters of the Uncircumcised rejoice, lest the whelps of the Yankees triumph.... The indomitable President of the late C.S.A., invulnerable to the diabolical concatenations of Mortal foes, has now at last succumed [sic] to the irresistible force of circumstances, and yielded after a brief but heroic struggle to the combined attack of Cholera Infantum, Summer Complaint, Mississippi Quick Step, General Goneness, and several other diseases too numerous to mention...." The remainder of the broadside lists the order of events at the mock funeral, with sarcastic notes such as one reading, "Owing to the scarcity of coin, J.D.'s eyes remain unclosed." An entertaining, if rather sadistic, and very scarce piece, with OCLC recording only one copy, at the Boston Athenaeum.

        THE MASTERSHIP AND ITS FRUITS: THE EMANCIPATED SLAVE FACE TO FACE WITH HIS OLD MASTER. A SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT TO HON. EDWIN M. STANTON, SECRETARY OF WAR, BY JAMES MCKAYE, SPECIAL COMMISSIONER.

      Wm. C. Bryant,, New York: 1865 - 38, [2 blank] pp. Original printed front wrapper, else Very Good. McKaye looks at the "great changes which slave society is undergoing" in "the valley of the Lower Mississippi." Of all the "other sections visited by the Commission, here are found all the elements of that society still in existence; but in a state of revolution and transformation." Recounting Slavery's features in this area of the Deep South, he explores the interaction of the races during the earliest phases of military reconstruction, the sleepy pace of many of the changes, the biases of white Union officers, and-- with much eyewitness testimony-- provides a valuable report on the results of the abolition of slavery in the part of the South where it was most deeply entrenched.

        [EXTENSIVE ARCHIVE OF OVER TWO HUNDRED FIFTY LETTERS FROM HATTIE W. TAYLOR TO HER HUSBAND CHARLES DURING THE CIVIL WAR AND HIS SERVICE IN THE 16th CONNECTICUT INFANTRY]

      Bristol, Unionville, West Meriden, Ct, 1865. 256 letters of varying lengths, most a single sheet, with 213 envelopes. 217 letters housed in two three-ring binders, with remaining letters still folded in envelopes. Previously folded, and an occasional area of staining, but overall fine. A fascinating and comprehensive collection of over two hundred fifty Civil War-era "home front" letters from a Connecticut woman, Hattie W. Taylor, to her husband, Charles, who spent most of the conflict as a part of Company K of the 16th Connecticut Infantry in the Army of the Potomac. Taylor seems to have been well-educated, and her letters are engaging, insightful, and full of interesting information and strong opinion regarding both local and national affairs. The letters begin in June 1860, and a small portion of them relate to the period in which Taylor was engaged to Charles before they got married in the middle of 1862 and he enlisted in the Union army. She eventually resigned herself to her new husband's plans, stating in an August 9 letter that, "I am brave and stronger now.... I have placed all my trust in my Heavenly Father and I believe he will care for you.... We shall be both be better for the sacrifice made for 'our country.' You are in the right, God is with you - your course is noble, manly, heroic." The 16th Connecticut participated in the Battle of Antietam on September 16-17, 1862, and suffered heavy losses, with more than 200 men captured. On September 23, Taylor wrote to her husband that she thanked God, "That he was spared-that from out that terrible battle you came unscathed." She also mentioned that she felt, "More encouraged regarding the end of the war. President Lincoln has issued a proclamation that after the first of January all slaves are to be free - so I think we may hope that God will give us success." Another local soldier, a Captain Manross was killed at Antietam and Taylor wrote of his funeral in a September 29 letter: "Mrs. Manross is nearly crazy - God pity and help her.... Capt. B. Darrons company came out from Hartford to attend Capt. Manross' funeral-also his class from Amherst & the Free Masons. The flags were hung at half mast & a general feeling of sadness prevailed." While some in the North were opposed to Lincoln's preliminary Emancipation Proclamation and fighting a civil war to free the slaves, Hattie Taylor supported the abolitionist cause. As she wrote in a December 7, 1862, letter to her husband: "God is on the side of right and if we obey him he will deliver us. Sometimes I think we at the north are suffering full measure for all that the poor oppressed black at the south has for years suffered. I believe their day of deliverance is at hand and when that comes peace will come too. You see your little wife hasn't changed her abolition principles." By March 1863, the early optimism concerning the war had given way to pessimism and, in some quarters, anti-war activities, in Connecticut. In a March 1 letter, Taylor wrote that people "are expecting another draft and there are long faces. Patriotism seems to have gone by-people are discouraged. Secession democrats here have had and still hold their secret meetings. I wish every soul of them was down South. It is a downright shame that such things are tolerated." A week later, she was still condemning the copperheads, as well as being critical of the Union Army, writing that, "We can see no immediate prospect of peace, but these miserable 'copperheads' (I wish they were all in rebeldom) are trying their best to help the rebels as you will see by the Press I send you weekly-and our armies are doing nothing (I'm thankful the 16th Reg. are not) at present." Taylor did like Union General Benjamin Butler but had harsh words for Secretary of State Seward. In a May 20, 1863 letter she claimed, "I like such a man as Gen. Butler, when he says a thing, he will do it and he is for having this infernal (big word for me) rebellion put down at all hazards. He knows what he wants to do or what wants doing and that is more than can be said of some. I wish Mr. Seward was in Fort Lafayette or some other place, than where he is now. I guess I will stop for wishing does no good, but if I had the power he would be missing till this war was over and some other ones too." Taylor reported vigorously on local reaction to military news. On July 7, 1863, she relayed the celebration in West Meriden, Connecticut, resulting from the Union victory at Vicksburg. "This afternoon the news of the surrender of Vicksburg was received. And it has been a time of rejoicing. All the bells in town were rung, shop whistles blew, all the flags were flying and people greeted each other with smiling faces. Some swung their hats in the air, and a feeling of hope filled all hearts." Learning that the Union victory of Gettysburg was accompanied by large numbers of casualties, she expressed her views regarding the outcome of the war in a July 12 letter: "Oh! That this cruel war was ended, but the clouds are breaking - already we can see through them the blue sky of peace - yet we know there is much more to be done yet- many hard battles to be fought ere the end comes-but we have great reason to be encouraged. Oh! I do hope our rulers may see and realize that only in justice can peace come to us. When we unconditionally give freedom to every downtrodden son of Africa then I believe the starry banner of our country shall float over a land of peace - and home of the brave." In her next letter, dated July 14, Taylor mentioned the New York draft riots and again expressed her negative opinion of copperheads: "Drafting has commenced and it makes many long faces. In New York it is being resisted by a mob - several lives have been lost, buildings burned-the telegraph poles cut down-rail road torn up - Harlem river bridge burned. A regular copperhead demonstration. It is reported they are fighting there to-night. How dreadful it is, but I hope these traitors at home will be attended to in earnest." Five days later she wrote of an expected draft riot in Meriden, Connecticut, "There is every expectation of it and every night when I retire to rest I know not but before morning I shall be awakened by the cries of a mob in our streets. The loyal citizens have formed themselves into companies for the defense of our town - they drill every morning and evening and have minie' rifles." In the summer of 1864, with General Ulysses Grant's army bogged down in Virginia and suffering heavy casualties, President Lincoln was re-nominated for a second term. Despite the growing number of casualties resulting from Grant's movement against General Lee's army, Taylor felt confident in Grant's abilities, as she stated in a June 21 letter. "I think Grant is the man for whom we have so long been looking to lead the Army of the Potomac, and he will eventually take Richmond but what a sacrifice of life." Nevertheless, she still held General Benjamin Butler in high regard, especially after reading James Parton's 1864 book, General Butler in New Orleans. In an August 2 letter, she wrote that she was, "Reading Parton's 'Life of Butler' - it is very interesting. I had no idea he had done so much - he stands high here than ever in my estimation. Would that we had more like him." By early 1865, Taylor looked forward to the end of the war and the return of her husband. As she indicated in a February 4 letter, she was not favor ending the war with an unjust peace, though she did welcome the passage of the 13th Amendment by the U.S. House of Representatives on January 31: "What do you think of the present 'peace movement'? I do not like the way things are being managed - much as I desire peace, let it come on a right basis - in justice or not at all, and let the traitors suffer the penalty of their crime. But it is glory enough for one week that the amendment of the Constitution is passed and slavery is abolished from our land. Thank God for that." In a February 21 letter, Taylor cheered the retaking of Fort Sumter by Union forces and expressed hopes for severe retribution to Confederates: "The flags are all flying here to-day because our glorious banner again waves over Fort Sumter.... I wish Gen. Sherman would not leave one stone upon another in the city of Charleston - but let it be forever waste - an example to all traitors and traitorous cities." When the Confederate capital Richmond fell on April 3, 1865, Hattie joined other Northerners in celebration. She wrote to her husband on April 4 of her happiness that: "the rebel capital is taken.... So long looking for this and now it has come. I can scarcely realize it.... I saw in last night's paper that 'staid New York merchants hugged each other' and every one was almost wild with joy." A week later she celebrated General Lee's surrender to General Grant at Appomattox. "Only think of it! Richmond ours and Lee with his army surrendered! - such rejoicing was never seen before I'm sure. I was so glad I almost cried for joy - we hung out our flag... we could hear bells and gongs all around." The celebrations in the North were, of course, silenced by the assassination of Lincoln. In an April 18, 1865, letter, Taylor expressed her emotions of sadness mixed with anger: "It seems so sad to think Mr. Lincoln is dead. There is mourning everywhere -any 'copper' that dares express joy is silenced. Traitors have added the last drop to their cup of iniquity and it is running over. I hope they will receive no mercy.... It seems sad to see black crape fluttering from the door knobs all along the street. They rode a man on a rail in Chipping hill for saying he ought to have been shot four years ago." In an April 30 letter Hattie informed her husband that she sought retribution: "I hope all implicated may be brought to justice. Gens. Lee, Johnson, Breckinridge, Jeff Davis and all those leaders ought to be hanged!! They have slain their ten thousands and deluged our land in blood. Justice demands it... there is no mercy pleading for them in my heart-but justice, stern justice to traitors-and copper's too- demands a fit punishment for this treason." She was optimistic about President Andrew Johnson, especially in handling the Southern traitors. On May 9 she wrote that, "I have a great deal of confidence in President Johnson. He has a good deal of the Andrew Jackson spirit that I like to see, when rebels and traitors are concerned. Decision and justice - I hope justice will be measured out to them to the brim." Approximately a month later, Charles had mustered out of his unit and returned to Connecticut. An extensive and exhaustive collection of correspondence that provides tremendous detail of a New England home experience of the Civil War.
