Between 1858 and 1872 Jenkin worked in the design and manufacture of submarine cables, performing the first accurate measurements of the specific inductive capacity of gutta-percha (used in submarine cable insulation) in 1862. His letter requests information on the comparative qualities of two different types of submarine cable:</p><p>"Can you give me the exact gain which you derived in the Persian Gulf cable in the use of the segmented wire, i.e. what the discharge was with the common strand and 225 [illeg.] 275 S.P. and what the discharge with the segmented wire same weights? If not with those exact weights can you give me the exact ratio of the discharges in any two cases where the same weights of materials were used-of the exact weights of materials required to produce the same discharge?" </p><p>Origins of Cyberspace 167.</p>

        Gebirgslandschaft mit kleiner Ortschaft.

      . Holzschnitt, auf dünnem chamoisfarbenem Velin, signiert und numeriert. 29,7:45,7 cm. Nr. 10 von 30 Exx. - Blatt durch den Druckvorgang wellig. Der Holzschnitt zeigt Einflüsse der expressionistischen Formensprache, die auch ihr Ehemann E. Betzler vertrat.. Über die Malerin und Graphikerin ist kaum etwas bekannt. Sie war Schülerin von L. von Kunowski (1866 - vor 1928) an der Düsseldorfer Akademie. Vermutlich lernte sie noch in Düsseldorf den Frankfurter Maler und Kunsterzieher E. Betzler (1892-1974) kennen, den sie heiratete und wohl 1916 nach Frankfurt am Main begleitete. Obwohl sie noch bei Dressler aufgeführt ist, waren keine weiteren Informationen über die Künstlerin herauszufinden.

        Fountain Savannah, Ga

      [New York 1866 - A fine copy of a stunning image from Barnard's 'Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign', an album which is one of the two greatest photographic monuments to the Civil War and 'a landmark in the history of photography' (Keith F. Davis). 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', 8 December, 1866, p.771) This image comes 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. Though some of Barnard's photographs in this series offer poignant reminders of the trail of destruction left across the Confederacy by General William T. Sherman's army in 1864 to 1865, the photographs in Savannah record that beautiful city's avoidance of destruction. The Confederate Army evacuation and subsequent civilian surrender saved Savannah from the destruction of bombardment and the agony of siege. This splendid fountain (Forsyth Park Fountain, which is still standing) in a peaceful park, handsomely photographed by Barnard, evokes the blessings of peace and creativity rather than the viciousness of war. Two Federal soldiers can be seen enjoying the beauty of the scene in the background. Cf. De Renne p.1317; cf. Howes B150, "b."; cf. Sabin 3462; cf. Taft Photography and the American Scene pp.232 & 486. See also: George N. Barnard Photographic Views of Sherman's Campaign. with a new preface by Beaumont Newhall New York: 1977 Keith F. Davis.

        An Appeal for the Horse

      Adelaide: David Gall, 1866. Small octavo, with six tinted lithographs of sketches by the author; fine in original purple cloth. &#39;to all animals by kindness and consideration...&#39;. Scarce first edition: an unusually charismatic book promoting the natural rights of the horse in Australia. George Hamilton (1812-1883) was a pioneer grazier and amateur artist who later served as inspector of the South Australian mounted police. Hamilton arrived in Sydney in 1837 and overlanded sheep to rich pasture country in Victoria. He settled in South Australia in 1839 where he was an active participant in the local horse races, and a keen artist, exhibiting in Adelaide&#39;s first two art exhibitions. In 1864 the {i Adelaide Advertiser} praised his accurate renderings, proclaiming his equine sketches &#39;have no equals in the colony&#39;. Some of Hamilton&#39;s work was used to illustrate famous inland exploration accounts published by John Eyre and George Grey. A very early South Australian lithographer, Hamilton owned a small press which he used to print his own work. In total Hamilton published three short booklets denouncing the poor treatment of horses in Australia. He was opposed to breaking in and other cruelties, contrasting conditions in Australia with the gentle treatment of horses in other cultures (notably Arabia). {i An Appeal for the Horse }was well received and was re-issued in Melbourne some years later.
