        Portraits. Fürst Ferdinand Maximilian zu Ysenburg-Büdingen-Wächtersbach und seiner Ehefrau geb. Prinzessin Augusta Marie Gertrude von Hanau (1829-1887). Zwei Zeichnungen (Gegenstücke) des Ehepaares, wohl in Grisaille Technik, beide signiert unten rechts \"Fr. Roux jun. Cassel\".

       Ca. 1865 / 1870. Jeweils in Passepartout (Bildausschnitt: ca. 50 x 40 cm). Je in ovalem altem Stuckrahmen (Rahmen: 85 x 75 cm, die Rahmen etwas beschädigt). *Bei dem Künstler handelt es sich wohl um den Kasseler Maler und Fotografen Johann Friedrich Wilhelm Theodor Roux (1806-1880) \"Vielbeschäftigter Pastellbildnismaler von technisch routinierter, naturalistisch nüchterner biedermeierlichen Haltung\" (Thieme-Becker 29, S. 122). Beide Werke sind in roter Tinte signiert \"Fr. Roux junior, Cassel\" also möglicherweise auch ein Sohn des Johann Friedrich Roux (über den aber nichts bekannt ist). Die beiden Bildnisse (vermutlich Grisaillemalerei oder Mischtechnik) sind im Stile einer realistischen Fotografie gemalt. Der Rahmen rückseitig mit zeitgenöss. Bezeichnung in Handschrift \"Fürst Ferdinand Maximilian zu Ysenburg\" (Datierung also nach 1865). - Der Graf Ferdinand Maximilian III zu Isenburg und Büdingen wurde 1865 in den Fürstenstand erhoben und nannte sich ab 1865 \"Ferdinand-Maximillian I.\" - Augusta Marie Gertrude von Hanau war die unehelich geborene älteste Tochter des Kurfürsten Friedrich Wilhelm I. von Hessen-Kassel (1802–1875) und seiner erst späteren Ehefrau Gertrude, spätere Fürstin von Hanau und zu Horowitz (1803–1882). Augusta Marie Gertrude wurde nach der Eheschließung der Eltern von ihrem leiblichen Vater Friedrich Wilhelm zur Gräfin Schaumburg und später zur Prinzessin von Hanau erhoben. Sie heiratete 1849 den Grafen Ferdinand Maximillian. - Die beiden vorliegenden Portraits sind wohl die einzigen oder eines der wenigen erhaltenen Bildnisse des Ehepaares der ehemals reichen Fürstendynastie von Ysenburg.

        The Assassination and Death of Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States of America, at Washington, on the 14th of April, 1865.

      New York: American News Company, 1865. Pamphlet, 12mo, original self-wrappers, 12 pp. Some minor creasing, pages partially detached, but still in tact, minor chipping along edges, a little soiling or aging; otherwise very good. Somewhat scarce Lincoln assassination pamphlet that is probably the first written document outside of newspaper coverage. Despite its shortness in length, the pamphlet provides considerable detail on this historic event. The article actually appears more organized and less chaotic than newspaper coverage, even though it was published shortly after the assassination. The author was Abott A. Abott, who had published a book on Lincoln a year earlier. The pamphlet was published by the American News Company (1864-1957), which was founded by Sinclair Tousey. This firm was very big into periodicals.

Two dusky grouse, one in foreground, one on tree branch in background, from "A Monograph of the Tetraoninae, or family of the grouse" by Daniel Giraud Elliot, published by the author, and lithographed and colored by Bowen & Co. in Philadelphia. Elliot "was a wealthy New Yorker who devoted much of his life to ornithological pursuits. His excellent private collection of birds formed the nucleus of the department of Ornithology at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, and he acted as emissary to purchase further collections abroad. [He was] an artist of note..." ("The Bird Illustrated" p.34). Six publications by Elliot are listed in Sitwell's "Fine Bird Books", including this one. This grouse is found in the Rocky Mountains.

        Finely penned letter, boldly signed 'Ludovico', in Italian with translation, to Cardinal Altieri, (1845-1886, Mad King of Bavaria who built Magnificent Castles & was a patron of Wagner, drowned in the Starnberg Lake)

      1865 - 1805-1867, thanking him for "the good wishes which Your Excellency sent me on the recurrence of the Holy Feast of the Nativity", and sending his in return for the Cardinal's "complete prosperity", 1 side folio and conjugate blank, Munich, 21st January two very light brown spots in blank portion, otherwise in excellent condition Written in the first New Year of Ludwig's reign. Altieri was one of the triumvirate who restored order to Rome after the revolution of 1849 and was made Governor. A good scholar and Chancellor of Rome University, he died of cholera while helping to relieve the epidemic in his diocese of Albano. In 1836 Cardinal Altieri became the diplomatic envoy to Austria for Pope Gregory XVI. He was created a cardinal in pectore four years later, receiving his red hat and title in 1845. Ludwig had a great passion for the music of the composer Richard Wagner and, on his father's death on March 10, 1864 when he ascended the throne it was one of his first official acts to invite Wagner to Munich. However, Wagner's influence over Ludwig and the king's liberal financial support combined with the composer's affair with a married woman (Franz Liszt's daughter, Cosima von Bülow) created such a public outcry that the young king was ultimately forced to dismiss him. After this Ludwig became increasingly reclusive and hid himself away in his alpine castle at Hohenschwangau, designing castles including the Disney-imitated Neuschwanstein. With his increasing instability the enormous expense of his castles became a burden to the kingdom and on June 8, 1886 he was declared insane. Five days later his body, along with that of his private physician Dr. von Gudden, was found floating in Lake Starnberg. Their deaths have never been satisfactorily explained.

        Autograph Letter Signed, to "My dear Mrs. Darbishire"

      1865 - Three pages (one leaf folded). Plain stationery but with "46 Plymouth Grove [Manchester]" handwritten at the top. Undated except for "Monday Evening." Signed "E.C. Gaskell." After the salutation, this letter reads as follows:~We started in such a hurry on Saturday that we found this morning that we had only looked forward to perpetual WARM weather, and had made no provision for rain. Moreover we could not make our purposed expedition ------ by -------- [?]; so we came home, having had two perfect days; and we hope you will consider that our visit to you is only a deferred pleasure. It was very nice seeing you all again last night! Ever yours very truly, E. C. Gaskell~At the end of the letter, in a fainter pen and different hand, it reads "Sep 9th 1866" -- which is impossible as a date for the letter, as Elizabeth Gaskell died on Nov 12th 1865 -- of a sudden heart attack at the age of 55 (sadly, just as she was visiting a house she was secretly buying, as a retirement surprise for her husband); on the back (blank) page of the letter, in the same faint hand it reads "The last letter from her." Perhaps the writer of these notes (presumably the recipient) meant Sept 9th 1865? -- as that would have been just two months before ECG's death.~Darbishire was a common last name in the Manchester area, with several people among the Gaskells' acquaintances; however the closest by far was Robert Darbishire, who had been the subject of a recurring dream Elizabeth had:~In December 1851, Gaskell wrote to Emily Tagart about a repeated bizarre dream she had been having, telling her: "I dream again and again of Robert Darbishire as a Bloomer, a daughter of mine with a 'pig beard under her muffler', & striding along in his pettiloons: you can't think what an uncomfortable dream it is. I don't know any other young man like him." . The Gaskells and the Dukinfield Darbishires became good friends and their children played together. Gaskell's dream appears to mix cross-dressing (Robert wears girl's clothes), with issues of gender (his pig beard). [Lambert]~"Mrs. Darbishire" may have been Mary (née Blackmore), wife of the solicitor Samuel Darbishire and mother of Robert, or possibly the wife of Robert himself; but Mary and Samuel had five other sons as well.~The letter is just about fine, though once folded into thirds.

        A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field. Received October 27, - Read December 8, 1864. (+) On a Method of making a Direct Comparison of Electrostatic with Electromagnetic Force; with a Note on the Electromagnetic Theory of Light. (Read June 18, 1868).

      London, Taylor and Francis, 1865 & 1869. 4to. Both papers extracted and rebound with the title-page of both vol. 155 and 158 in recent green plain wrappers. Three leaves reinforced in margin. A fine copy. (4), [A Dynamical Theory...] 459-512, V, [On a Method...] 643-657 pp. First printing of these two fundamental papers, in which Maxwell unified the theory of light-waves, electricity, and magnetism in his spectacular laws of electromagnetism. The 1865-paper represents THE BIRTH OF ONE OF THE GREATEST DISCOVERIES IN THE HISTORY OF SCIENCE and the most SPECTACULAR TRIUMPH OF THE 19TH CENTURY - it had an enormous impact on science and technology. In the 1869-paper he for the first time proposed to base the electromagnetic theory of light solely on 2 equations. The paper is one of Maxwell's 5 most important contributions to electromagnetism.Working out a few simple equations that expressed all the varied phenomena of electricity and magnetism, Maxwell bound them indissolubly together, showing that electricity and magnetism could not exist in isolation. Maxwell's suggestion that electromagnetic waves could be generated in a laboratory was confirmed by Heinrich Hertz's in 1887 and laid the foundations for the later inventions of radio, television, and radar."Since Maxwell's time, Physical Reality has been thought of as represented by continuous fields...not capable of any mechanical interpretation. This change in the conception of Reality is the most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton."(Albert Einstein in "James Clerk Maxwell" 1931)."James Clerk Maxwell (1831-79) succeeded in formulating Faraday's geometrical ideas in exact mathematical language. He became the founder of the electromagnetic field theory which described all electric and magnetic action as the consequence of eight partial differential equations of the first order, the celebrated "Maxwellian equations". These equations established the interrelation between two fundamental field vectors, the electric and the magnetic field strength, based on Faraday's experiments, but augmented by the 'displacement current' which was too small to be directly observable by the instruments available in his time - it was put in solely by Maxwell's ingenious intuition.....The Maxwellian theory gave Faraday's field ideas their full significance and became the most important accomplishment of nineteenth-century physics. We could not imagine the physics of our day without the Maxwellian theory, even if we know today that these equations describe the electric phenomena only in their macroscopic manifestations, but fail to account for the atomistic structure of electricity demonstrated by the existence of the electron and proton." (Cornelius Lanzos in "The Einstein Decade (1905-1915", p.71-72)."A generation later Einstein's work on relativity was founded directly upon Maxwell's electromagnetic theory; it was this that led him to equate Faraday with Galileo and Maxwell with Newton."

Each leaf is printed on one side, and each printed page has a half-page color illustration and decorative pictorial borders around the edges in black. This book is similar to the version published by Prang, but the ending of the story is much more sinister: Red Riding Hood is devoured by the wolf, who then falls asleep. Her father comes along too late to save her, but he slays the sleeping wolf. The Dean version is also much rarer than the Prang: only one institutional copy is recorded. Fine in stiff paper covers.

        21 autograph letters, signed, to Marie-Félicité Brosset].Saint Petersburg, ca. 1840-1879. 8vo (letters, mostly 21 x 13.5 cm) and folio (list of publications). Letters in French with an occasional (Persian?) word in Arabic script, written in black ink on paper, some with the address on the outside and one with Dorn's (Persian?) red wax seal in Arabic script.With: (2) [Manuscript chronological numbered list of 34 publications by Dorn, 1843-1865].[Saint Petersburg, ca. 1865].

      - Signed autograph letters written over nearly 40 years by the German-born orientalist in Saint Petersburg, Bernard Dorn (1805-1881) to (or in one case for) his Paris-born colleague Marie-Félicité Brosset (1802-1880), mostly while Brosset was at the Hermitage Museum and Dorn at the Asiatic Museum, both in Saint Petersburg. The letters revolve around their mutual professional interest in oriental languages, particularly in Georgia (Tiflis is explicitly mentioned), and in numismatics. Dorn and Brosset were nearly the same age, came to Saint Petersburg at nearly the same time, and the present letters show that they also developed a close personal friendship, sometimes referring to their families. Some letters with embossed stamps. Some of the letters were sealed and therefore have small tears where Brosset broke the seals, but all are in good or very good condition. In 3 letters the ink has bled through a bit.

        A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field.

      London: Taylor and Francis, 1865. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. In: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society. Vol. 155, part I (1865), pp.459-512. 4to (276x215 mm). Contemporary calf, rebacked, edges worn. ----Dibner 68; PMM 355; Sparrow 144; Norman 1465. - FIRST EDITION of the fourth of Maxwell's five important papers on the foundations of electromagnetic theory published between 1855 and 1868. "By 1863... Maxwell had found a link of a purely phenomenological kind between electromagnetic quantities and the velocity of light. His fourth paper... clinched matters. It provided a new theoretical framework for the subject, based on experiment and a few general principles, from which the propagation of electromagnetic waves through space followed without any special assumptions about molecular vortices or the forces between electric particles" (DSB). "Clerk Maxwell, who may well be judged the greatest theoretical physicist of the nineteenth century, was happy to acknowledge his debt to Faraday; for what he did was to construct the mathematical theory of the field... In the present paper the consideration of 'mechanical models' representing the interplay and movement of electromagnetic forces on the field [of magnetic force, as conceived by Faraday], which Maxwell had pursued in earlier papers, was abandoned: the developed field-theory, expressed in twenty equations, was purely and elegantly mathematical" (PMM 355). Very Good.

        Der Löwenbändiger Herr Bathy-Cooper wird sich mit 6 dressirten Löwen in einem prachtvollen Käfig produciren. Die Productionen der Löwen sind von der staunenerregendsten Art. Er zwingt durch seine übermenschlichen Ausführungen und sichtliche Kühnheit die wilden Bewohner der Wüste vor dem Blitz seines Adlerauges sich niederzulegen und um herumzuspringen. Alle Productionen werden von ihm mit einem seltenen Muth ausgeführt, mit einem Wort, ein Blick dieses Löwenbändigers macht ihn zum Beherrscher und verschafft ihm Unterwürfigkeit und Ehrerbietung dieser wilden Tiere. - Ernst Renz, Director.
