      Salvatore Montes 1866 - 1882, Agrigento - Bella legatura posteriore in mz. pelle con angoli, nervi, fili, fregi e titolo oro al dorso. Fioriture sparse. Opera rara a trovarsi completa, la cui importanza è ancora accresciuta in questo esemplare per le accurate annotazioni verosimilmente autografe dell Autore che probabilmente intendeva pubblicare una seconda edizione. L avvocato Giuseppe Picone fu Presidente del Tribunale civile di Agrigento nel governo della rivoluzione (1848), prima di essere nominato Consigliere comunale (1860), poi Consigliere provinciale (1861) e Presidente del Consiglio (1862).

Particolarmente interessante è lo studio del periodo arabo, dove l Autore dimostra l influenza della lingua araba sul dialetto siciliano. Mira, II, 219 pp. (cita come ultima la dispensa del 1870). 4to (cm. 27), 836, CLXXVIII pp. (alcuni quaderni di formato più piccolo): All interno delle prime 836 pp. vi sono 4 cc.nn.

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland [together with:] Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1866 & 1872. With Forty-Two [and] Fifty Illustrations by John Tenniel. 2 works, octavo (187 x 117; 177 x 117 mm). Late 20th century red full calf by Bayntun, spines emblematically tooled in gilt, twin green morocco labels, two-line gilt border on sides enclosing gilt stamps of the White Rabbit and Red Queen, richly gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, original cloth covers and spines bound-in. Housed in a fleece-lined red cloth slipcase. Illustrated throughout by Sir John Tenniel. Early presentation inscription on half-title of Wonderland (dated "Xmas 1865"). A few light marks to bindings. First published editions, first issue of Through the Looking-Glass (with the misspelling of "wabe" on p. 21). Famously, the first edition of 2,000 copies of Wonderland was recalled by Dodgson, due to what either he, or Tenniel, felt to be the unsatisfactory reproduction of Tenniel's illustrations; "it has been questioned whether the first edition [of 1865] was ever published, in the strict sense of being on sale to the public and sent to the copyright libraries... Assuming that only a strict 2,000 copies were printed at the Clarendson Press, Dodgson seems to have regained all but 10 copies" (Williams, Madan & Green). For this new edition the book was entirely reset by Richard Clay and was published in November 1865, although dated "1866". It is this version which formed the basis for all future Macmillan editions. A handsomely bound set.

        The Story of the Universities' Mission to Central Africa,

      London: Saunders, Otley, and Co.,, 1866. from its Commencement under Bishop Mackenzie to its Withdrawal from the Zambesi. Octavo. Original green sand-grained cloth, title gilt to the spine, blind panels to the boards, publisher's device gilt to the centre of the front board. Frontispiece and 7 other plates, 2 full-page maps, numerous illustrations to the text. A little rubbed, and a touch dusty, front hinges just starting, front pastedown slightly marked by the removal of a bookplate, light browning and some foxing front, back and to the fore-edge, a very good copy. First edition, uncommon, just 9 locations on Copac. Account of the society's disastrous first missionary expedition which took them into Nyasaland, now Malawi . Founded in 1860 by a coalition of groups in Oxford, Cambridge, Durham, and Dublin Universities, the Universities' Mission to Central Africa was inspired by the lectures that David Livingstone gave on his visit to England in 1857 and was established with two main aims: to establish a missionary presence in Central Africa, and to offer active opposition to the slave trade. It was the first mission society operated by the high church faction of the Anglican Church, and was unique among Anglican missions in that primary authority rested not with a committee based in Britain, but with a bishop in the field, for which purpose Charles Mackenzie was consecrated bishop of central Africa in Cape Town Cathedral in January 1861. The missionary party set off up the Zambezi into Shire, where their choice of Magomero as their base was fatally flawed, placing them in the middle of a region, ridden with disease and deeply troubled by intertribal conflicts. Bishop Mackenzie died there of Blackwater Fever on 31 January 1862, along with three other members of the tiny missionary party, and many local people. Early conversion efforts from this base yielded little result, and supplies ran out or were destroyed during a period of famine. Under its new bishop, W.G. Tozer, the mission subsequently withdrew from the area, abandoning the graves of the missionaries who had died there, and establishing a new headquarters in Zanzibar.

        The Theory and Practice of Banking.

      London: Longmans, Green, Reader, & Dyer,, 1866. Second Edition. 2 volumes, octavo (209 x 133 mm). Contemporary dark red-brown half calf, marbled sides, raised bands, dark green and tan morocco labels, compartments richly gilt, marbled edges and endpapers. Volume I with bookplate of Archibald Spens to front pastedown and a contemporary gift inscription to front flyleaf. Spines lightly sunned, extremities slightly rubbed and worn, inner hinges cracked but firm, light spotting to prelims and endmatter. A very good set. Second edition of this work by the Scottish economist Henry Dunning Macleod (1821?-1902). "Macleod, who agreed in the main with Richard Whately's views, regarded value as consisting in exchangeability, not as dependent on utility or cost of production. He quoted Whately's dictum that the diver was employed because the pearl was desired and thus valuable: the pearl was not valuable on account of the cost of the diver. He was the first writer to give due stress to the power of interest rates to lure the world's gold across national boundaries; and the first to give a detailed account of the process by which bank credit is created. His insistence that the quantity of credit, not the quantity of notes and coin, was the driving force in the economy was common enough for his time; but unlike most of those who held it, Macleod remained a stern opponent of inflationary finance" (ODNB).

        ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE MANNERS, CUSTOMS, AND CONDITION OF THE NORTH AMERICAN INDIANS WITH LETTERS AND NOTES WRITTEN DURING EIGHT YEARS OF TRAVEL AND ADVENTURE AMONG THE WILDEST AND MOST REMARKABLE TRIBES NOW EXISTING

      London, 1866. Contemporary three-quarter red morocco and marbled boards; spines tooled with gilt devices of Indian heads, tomahawks, and peace pipes; gilt morocco labels; a.e.g. Very good. In a cloth slipcase. Deluxe issue of the tenth edition, one of "twelve or more" with the plates printed in outline and colored by hand. The London publisher, Henry Bohn, took over publication in 1845 and altered the title to that given above. What is important in this copy is the colored plates. According to Sabin (who knew Bohn quite well and was certainly in a position to be aware of the facts), "Mr. Bohn had twelve or more copies colored after the fancy of the artist who did the work, but tolerably well. Such copies are worth $60 a set." In fact, a set brought $24 at the Field sale in 1875. By comparison, a copy of the CATLIN'S NORTH AMERICAN INDIAN PORTFOLIO... sold for only $1.50 at that sale. Howes disagrees with Sabin and states that various editions published by Bohn appear with the plates colored; however, given the quality of the work involved and the lack of any contemporary evidence amongst Bohn's advertising material of a more generally available colored issue, it would seem likely that Sabin is correct, and only about a dozen were produced. The plates themselves are clean, fresh, and very handsomely colored. It is impossible to identify the colorist, but it was quite possibly one of the Catlin copyists working in England at that time, John Cullum or Rosa Bonheur. The plates illustrate scenes of Indian life in the West, or are portraits of individual Indians. The book was and is one of the most widely circulated works on American Indians written in the 19th century, and the illustrations so beautifully presented herein remain the most important body of illustrative material for wild Indian life in the American West.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Zürich, 28. IV. 1866. 3 S., 4°. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Clausius gilt als Entdecker des zweiten Hauptsatzes der Thermodynamik, Schöpfer der Begriffe Entropie und Virial, sowie einer der ersten theoretischen Physiker in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts. - „Hochgeehrtester Herr College, Mit schwerem Herzen ergreife ich die Feder, um Ihnen Bericht zu erstatten [...]“. --- 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. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Clausius, Schrötter, Physik, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

      - Stahlstich v. Edouard Girandet n. J.L. Gerôme b. Goupil & Cie., dat. 1866, 42,5 x 73,5 Er gilt als klassischer Vertreter des höfischen Absolutismus. Der Leitsatz des Absolutismus "L'État, c’est moi! - Der Staat bin ich!" wird ihm jedoch fälschlicherweise zugeschrieben. Er festigte die Macht der Krone durch den Ausbau der Verwaltung, durch die Bekämpfung der Opposition des Adels und durch die Förderung der französischen Wirtschaft. Die Hofkultur wurde ganz auf die Person des Herrschers zugeschnitten. Der König förderte Künste und Wissenschaften, was eine Blütezeit der französischen Kultur zur Folge hatte. Ludwig XIV. vertrat eine expansive und kriegerische Außenpolitik, so dass Frankreich unter seiner Regierung eine stark dominierende Stellung in Europa gewann. Mit zweiundsiebzig Jahren auf dem Thron war er das am längsten amtierende Staatsoberhaupt in der Geschichte Europas. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

A few tears (repaired on verso) and a small loss in the blank area at bottom, not affecting the engraving, light foxing, else fine condition.A nice, strong example of this seminal portrait of the 16th President. As soon as it was issued, this print was accepted as the finest portrait ever done of Lincoln, and in fact was claimed by a number of critics to be one of the finest engravings ever produced. Copies of this print were sent to many who knew Lincoln, and their reaction was uniformly enthusiastic. Amongst some who had high praise for the print were Robert Todd Lincoln, Gustave Dore, William Herndon, Edwin Stanton and Charles Sumner. Frederick Douglass even had the print on display in his home."

        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

      1866 - CARROLL, Lewis. Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With Forty-Two Illustrations by John Tenniel. New York: D. Appleton, 1866. Octavo, original gilt-stamped red cloth, all edges gilt. Housed in a custom full morocco slipcase. $21,000.Rare first American editionâ€"virtually the earliest obtainable editionâ€"of the book that forever changed the face of children’s literature, preceding the first published London edition, quite scarce in the original pictorial cloth-gilt.Lewis Carroll's classic romp through the realm of rarefied nonsense "is, in a word, a book of that extremely rare kind which will belong to all the generations to come until the language becomes obsolete" (Carpenter & Prichard, 102). "The book's droll illustrations, exuberant fun and lunacy combined with logic captivated children, and this revolutionary fantasy achieved immediate and enduring success… Carroll recognized the child's inner fears, wishes, intelligence and imagination. He unleashed thousands of children's minds and imaginations and invited them to laugh" (Silvey, 123-24). Like its plot, the book's early publication history could aptly be characterized as having grown "curioser and curioser" at each turn. "The Clarendon Press, Oxford, printed two thousand copies of what has come to be known as the first edition of the book. On May 24, 1865 Carroll wrote to his publisher… requesting 50 copies to give to friends. On 19 July, however, he heard from John Tenniel, his illustrator, that he was 'dissatisfied with the printing of the pictures.' On August 2, Carroll finally decided on the re-print of Alice, and he immediately set about recalling all the copies that he had sent out earlier, promising replacements as soon as the new printing was available. The remainder of the original books were sold to Appleton, the New York publisher, and they would appear, with a new title-page, as the first American edition." Only about 20 copies with the original London title page exist, making it virtually unobtainable (Cohen, 113-114). This American issue consisted of only 1000 copies. Title page with "b" in "by" slightly to the right of the "T" in "Tenniel" (no priority established). Preliminary leaves in variant state A, with "Alice! A childish…" on leaf [b1r] and "rabbit hole" unhyphenated in the Table of Contents (leaf [b2r]) (no priority established). Williams 44. Lewis Carroll at Texas 2. Schiller 1. Muir, 139. See PMM 354. Small bookseller label.Inner paper hinges with expert reinforcement; text generally clean. Soiling and light wear to cloth, gilt bright. A very good copy of the earliest obtainable edition, scarce and desirable in the original cloth. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [TWO EARLY PHOTOGRAPHS OF IOWA & SAUK AND FOX INDIANS FROM THE DELEGATION TO WASHINGTON]

      [Washington, 1866. Mounts slightly warped, one moderately soiled. Images somewhat faded. Very good. Two early photographs, taken by noted American photographer Alexander Gardner, showing the Iowa and Sauk and Fox delegation to Washington, D.C. in January of 1866. The first shows a group of four Native American chiefs, three are seated and the fourth standing. The second image depicts a Native American standing, clad in native garb and holding a long spear upright. These images follow Gardner's Civil War photos, but precede his important photographic work on the Oglala Sioux. HARPER'S WEEKLY for Jan. 27, 1866, in which there appears a reproduced engraving of the present group photograph, reads: "We give on our first page portraits of four of the Indian delegates from Nebraska. The delegation, consisting altogether of eight Indians, arrived in Washington on the evening of January 2, in company with Major J. A. Burbank, United States Indian Commissioner for the Great Nebraska Agency. There were five Indians of the Iowa tribe and three of the Sac and Fox tribe. Three of our portraits are of Iowas, namely: Lag-er- lash, or British, Too-hi, or Brier Rose, and Tar-a-kee, or Deer-ham, the two first being half-civilized, while Deer-ham represents the wild portion of the tribe. Pe-ti- o-ki-ma, or Hard-fish, is a wild representative of the Sacs and Foxes. ... The main object of the present visit is to have a 'talk' with regard to a treaty made in 1861, and to have it renewed. When they sold their lands to the Government, they understood the agreement to be that they were to receive the purchase-money in hand. The United States hold the principal, however, and the Indians are regularly paid the interest. ... But of course the enjoyment is partly the object of their visit, for an Indian considers it one of the greatest events of his life to visit Washington and see his 'Great Father,' and nothing gives him more pleasure, or makes him think himself, or be esteemed by others of his tribe, a great man, than when he can rehearse to a listening audience what he has seen and heard on his travels. They will also carry back with them new silver peace medals, a number of which are now being struck at the Philadelphia Mint." Alexander Gardner (1821-82) was one of the most important photographers of his day. Gardner gained fame through his work during the Civil War, first with Mathew Brady's studio and then as official photographer for the Army of the Potomac, when he produced several now-iconic images. After the war he became a field photographer for the Union Pacific Railroad. In the 1870s he established a studio in Washington, D.C., and made contracts with William Blackmore to photograph visiting Indian delegations. The present images, however, follow on the heels of his Civil War publications, making them notably early. An image of this delegation by Gardner, in an imperial 13 by 19-inch format, realized $59,800 in May, 2006 at Cowan's Auctions. The National Anthropological Archives holds the original glass plate negatives of these images.

        FOUNTAIN SAVANNAH, GA. [Plate 51]

      [New York, 1866. Expertly repaired tear to mount, lower left corner and mild discolouration in the mid-section of the image, otherwise good tones. A stunning image from George N. Barnard's album titled PHOTOGRAPHIC VIEWS OF SHERMAN'S CAMPAIGN, EMBRACING SCENES OF THE OCCUPATION OF NASHVILLE, THE GREAT BATTLES AROUND CHATTANOOGA AND LOOKOUT MOUNTAIN, THE CAMPAIGN OF ATLANTA, MARCH TO THE SEA, AND THE GREAT RAID THROUGH THE CAROLINAS (1866). This album, together with Alexander Gardner's PHOTOGRAPHIC SKETCHBOOK OF THE CIVIL WAR (1866), are the two greatest photographic monuments of the Civil War. Between them they contain some of the most famous images of the War. Keith F. Davis calls Barnard's album "a landmark in the history of photography." A contemporary reviewer wrote of this image and its companions: "These photographs...surpass any other photographic views which have been produced in this country - whether relating to the war or otherwise" (HARPER'S WEEKLY, Dec. 8, 1866, p.771). The present image offers a poignant reminder of the trail of destruction left across the Confederacy by Gen. William T. Sherman's army in 1864 to 1865 during his famous campaign from Nashville to Chattanooga, then Atlanta, and so to Savannah and the sea, then by-passing Charleston, and north to Columbia. In the meantime, a smaller force had occupied Charleston and Fort Sumter. To the North the military campaign was brilliant, bold, and decisive - an event worthy of the present monumental album. To the South it was vicious, bloody, and destructive.

        SHERER'S MASONIC DEGREE BOOK OF ANCIENT CRAFT MASONRY: BEING A CORRECT PRESENTATION OF THE EMBLEMS OF THE BLUE LODGE DEGREES OF ENTERED APPRENTICE, FELLOW CRAFT, AND MASTER MASON ACCORDING TO THE AMERICAN SYSTEM

      Cincinnati, 1866. Large folio. Modern half calf and cloth, original gilt leather label preserved on front cover. Slight paper loss, not affecting text, at bottom of titlepage, expertly filled in. Light foxing and some noticeable thumb-soiling, some pencil and ink notations annotating the images. Very good. An remarkably rare Masonic book illustrating ceremonies for the three degrees of craft masonry. John Sherer, himself a Mason, published a number of books on freemasonry, and found considerable success with both THE MASONIC LADDER (1866) and GEMS OF MASONRY (1859). The present work was produced in the wake of Sherer's Masonic Carpets, which he produced to hang in Masonic temples to aid masters with ceremonial rites. The last page carries the imprint of Ehrgott, Forbriger & Co., who executed the lithography. This copy comes from the Hudson River Lodge, No. 607 in Newburgh, New York, with their label affixed to the front cover. Interestingly, Hudson River Lodge 607 was chartered the same year as this book's publication, 1866. The only known copies of this title are at Library of Congress, which lists two. Not in OCLC. From a publisher's advertisement in Sherer's THE MASONIC LADDER, also published in 1866: "SHERER'S MASONIC DEGREE BOOK. This is a collection of emblematic plates, suitable for framing separately, or for binding in a volume....They are from the finest lithographic drawings, printed in colors on the best plate paper. The correctness of their symbolisms and elegance of execution are vouched for by a long array of the intelligent brethren who have examined them.
