        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland. With 42 illustrations by John Tenniel.

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1866. , 1866. 8vo. Pps. 192. Bound in red cloth, gilt, with powder blue endpapers, all edge gilt, housed in leather collectors box. Neat owner name to margin of title-page with ink faded to a soft yellow (now barely visible). Contents and binding are particularly fresh; a curious copy, originally purchased at auction where it achieved a considerable sum as a fine copy. Upon close inspection however we now believe this copy has been expertly bound in the first part of the twentieth century, using the same red cloth and binder's brasses which are virtually identical to the original design; in addition the correct powder-blue endpapers are employed. The leather box is likely from the 20's or 30's, and was conceivably made when this binding was first executed. A striking copy of a landmark title. FIRST PUBLISHED EDITION of 'Alice in Wonderland.' Lewis Carroll disliked the edition published in 1865 so much that he had them all recalled and shipped out to the U.S.A. where the title pages were removed and new American ones inserted. Carroll's annoyance was with the typography and general look of the book. The illustrator, Tenniel, also complained that his illustrations were not being done justice. It is estimated that no more than 20 of these 1865 issues escaped. They are mostly now held in institutional collections. The new sheets were issued in the UK the following year. It is uncertain whether the edition comprised two thousand of four thousand copies. Williams, Nadan, Green [46]

        Memorie storiche agrigentine

      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). Era Direttore del Museo comunale da lui fondato ad Agrigento quando scrisse queste Memorie storiche divise in sei periodi (mitico, Elleno, Elleno Cartaginese, romano, arabo e il periodo della monarchia sino al 1878) e pubblicate a dispense su un arco di quindici anni. 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. (Errori, Correzioni, Indice) e una tav. più volte rip. (Genealogia dei Chiaramonte). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

      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.

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.

        MAP OF LONG ISLAND, AND THE SOUTHERN PART OF CONNECTICUT

      New York, 1866. Bound into original 16mo. brown cloth boards, stamped in blind and gilt. Advertisement for Colton & Co. laid down inside front cover. Very good. A detailed, large-scale map of Long Island contemporary with the close of the Civil War, with an untitled inset of New York Harbor. Most noticeable is the almost entirely rural character of the island. Just one railroad runs its entire length, from Hunter's Point to Greenpoint on the northern peninsula. There is little development as of yet in Queens. Rumsey (5073) lists only an 1863 edition, published by J.H. Colton. Not in Phillips MAPS.
