MAXWELL, JAMES CLERK
London: Taylor & Francis, 1867. First edition. FIRST PRINTING IN RARE ORIGINAL WRAPPERS OF ONE OF MAXWELL'S MAJOR PAPERS: THE MOST DEVELOPED AND COMPLETE EXPLORATION OF HIS THEORY OF GASES. "Ever since his brilliant but flawed paper of 1860 on gas theory, Maxwell had been mulling over new ideas on the topic. In 1866 he brought them to fruition in a paper, On the Dynamical Theory of Gases. His earlier paper had given the world its first statistical law of physics-the Maxwell distribution of molecular velocities-and had predicted that the viscosity of a gas was independent of its pressure," but significant problems remained. Although Maxwell's earlier theory of gases predicted that the viscosity of a gas varied with the square root of absolute temperature, his own experimental evidence contradicted his theory. "The fault seemed to lie in Maxwell's original assumption that when molecules collided they behaved like billiard balls, int other words that they were perfectly elastic spheres. He now tried the alternative assumption that they did not actually come into contact at all but repelled one another with force that varied inversely with the nth power of the separation distance... Some fiendishly complicated mathematics followed... [but] he found two ways to simplify the calculations. "One was to introduce the notion of relaxation time, the time a system takes to return to a state of equilibrium after being disturbed. This is a concept now routinely used throughout physics and engineering... Like so many of Maxwell's innovations, it has become so familiar that one wonders why … [Click Below for Full Description]

Holstein, Anna Morris
Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co, 1867. First edition of Anna Morris Holstein's "perceptive reminiscences [of] the decidedly unglamorous side of war with the Army of the Potomac" (Nevins II, 128). Octavo, original cloth with gilt titles to the spine. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the second free endpaper, "Mrs. David Haines From Anna M. Holstein Nov 15th 1886." The recipient's husband, David Haines, was enlisted in the 3rd Cavalry of the Union Army during the Civil War. A previous owner has completed the author's printed name "Mrs. H." as "Mrs. Holstein" on the title page an introduction. In very good condition with minor loss to the crown and foot of the spine. Scarce and desirable in the original cloth and signed by the author. An important eye-witness account of northern hospitals during the Civil War. Anna Morris Holstein and her husband William H. Holstein enlisted with the U.S. Sanitation Commission following William's service in the Pennsylvania militia during Lee's 1862 invasion. After witnessing the carnage at Antietam, the wealthy couple felt called to serve their country, as Anna noted, "we have no right to the comforts of our home, while so many of the noblest of our land renounce theirs." Anna struggled with the grisly realities of war and later admitted that she was frequently of little use until she could gain control of her composure and stop crying. Following the war, publisher J.B. Lippincott capitalized on the hunger for war stories, first with Hospital Sketches, then less successfully with Notes of Hospital Life (1864).

WHITMAN, WALT
New York: [for Walt Whitman], 1867. This is the fourth Leaves of Grass. The failure of Thayer & Eldridge, publisher of the third edition (Boston, 1860), left Whitman in search of a publisher. The poet decided that the events of the Civil War called for another reimagining of Leaves of Grass. Whitman returned to his earlier practice and financed the publication himself, engaging the New York printer William E. Chapin. For the first time, the 1867 Leaves opened with the poem "Inscription," which introduced the book in subsequent editions."In various permutations, Whitman circulated this fourth edition as four separately paginated books stitched together between two covers: a vastly re-edited version of the 1860 Leaves, a reissue of Drum-Taps, a reissue of the Sequel to Drum-Taps, and a striking coda called Songs Before Parting. This most chaotic of all six editions of Leaves contains only six new poems ("Inscription" [later "One's-Self I Sing" and "Small the Theme of My Chant"], "The Runner," "Leaves of Grass" number 2 [later "Tears"], "Leaves of Grass" number 3 [later "Aboard at a Ship's Helm"], "When I Read the Book," and "The City Dead-House"), but its significance lies in its intriguing raggedness, which is embedded in the social upheaval in the immediate aftermath of the Civil War" (Mancuso, Walt Whitman: An Encyclopedia).There are three issues, each with the same title-page: 1) containing Leaves of Grass, Drum-Taps, Sequel to Drum-Taps, and Songs before Parting; 2) as above but omitting Drum-Taps and Sequel to Drum-Taps [the present copy]; 3) containing Leaves of Grass … [Click Below for Full Description]

WHITNEY, Joel Parker
Paris: L. Berger, 1867. Translated by Gustave Naquet. 8vo. 71 pp. Two maps (of Colorado and the United States). Early 20th-century half morocco, marbled boards, original printed wrappers bound in. Some pale browning, light wear at extremities. Item #403620 FIRST EDITION IN FRENCH, published for the Universal Exposition at Paris, 1867. Whitney represented the Colorado Territory in its mineral exhibition, and the display of Colorado Ore was awarded a Gold Medal. The display of raw materials from the nations of the world formed the central zone of the elliptically shaped building designed to make the exhibition truly an exposition universelle. Whitney's enthusiasm was over-the-top; he writes "We find a belt of pyritous gold veins in Colorado surpassing in richness any known in the world, to which the gold fields of California bear no comparison."

Barnum, Phineas Taylor] Ives, Francis
Bridgeport [CT], 1867. Large folio, folded to 7 3/4" x 9 3/4". [4] pp, lined paper. Completely in ink manuscript. Very Good. P.T. Barnum had executed a bond as principal guaranteeing William Howard Barnum's honest and faithful performance of his duties. "At the time the bond was executed Wm. H. Barnum was a lad and employed by the Bank to make fires, sweep the banking room, run errands and assist in assorting money. His salary was $50 a year." William Howard Barnum [referred to as Howard], the son of P.T.'s brother Philo, worked for the Bank as a Clerk and then was promoted to Teller and Bookkeeper. "He continued in this position about three years, when he began to embezzle the funds of the Bank." His new position of teller and book keeper enabled him to perpetrate the offences." On July 20, 1867 Nephew requested a leave of absence and promised to return the following Tuesday. When he failed to do so, the Bank discovered that he had embezzled a substantial amount of Bank funds. Ives explains the history of P.T.'s involvement with the Bank. A Bank Director when he originally executed the bond, he resigned when he became insolvent in 1855. P.T. returned to the Bank as a Director in 1861, remaining as such since then. "He has however never taken any active part as Director and has seldom been present at their meetings." But he executed a new bond guaranteeing his nephew's faithful performance only a couple of months before Howard's disappearance. Ives suggests that, had the Bank been more diligent, it might have discovered the fraud when the amount stolen was relatively small. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hunter, an American doctor, had antagonized English doctors by claiming to have developed a better set of therapies to treat the tuberculosis. A shrewd self-promoter, he publicized his views widely and attracted a large number of patients. He had several critics. One of them published an article attacking him in the Pall Mall Gazette titled "Dupes and Imposters." Hunter sued.

He has some stern advice for his younger foster brother, Charley, delivered through his older brother. WILLIAM TECUMSEH SHERMAN. Autograph Letter Signed, to his foster brother and former General Thomas Ewing Jr. Saint Louis, Missouri, June 30, 1867, 4 pp., quarto. Inventory #23562.01 Complete Transcript Saint Louis Mo, June 30, 1867 Dear Tom, I have your letter of June 9th which came when I was up on the Platte, and since my return I have been so busy getting some papers ready for the coming session of Congress that I have had no time for private letters till today Sunday, and at home. I am delighted to hear that both Hugh and Charley have mustered off altogether. I never knew two persons who were less fitted to drink. If either could see himself, as I have seen them they would never again be tempted to put themselves in John Barleycorn's grasp. It seems to me that Hugh's place was cut out for him and I hope he may long retain it. As to Charley I fear both he and you have a radically wrong idea. He is a Captain of a company & should be with his men, or should make a vacancy now. He has no right to trifle with the lives of men. He does the Army a great wrong by making it a mere personal convenience. Were I in Chief command and he or any body else would prolong a leave of absence and in position and when he had exhausted every possible device, then concluded to serve another year to pr … [Click Below for Full Description]

Lewis Carroll
Macmillan and Company. Very good second edition (sixth thousand) of ALICE, London 1867. Signed by Ray Bradbury. Unique. Alice's Adventures In Wonderland(Sixth Thousand, or, the second English edition) by Lewis Carroll Illustrated by Sir John Tenniel London: Macmillan and Co., 1867 Signed by Ray Bradbury on the front free endpaper and to our knowledge the only one he ever signed of any second edition of Alice. This book is a second printing of the English edition and is stated "Sixth Thousand" with the date 1867 on the title page. A very early printing of the World's most famous childrens' book. Interior pages are very good. Boards are 7.25" x 5.0" inches, 192 pages.
On the last page there are some small pencil words, four of them, which are obscure so I left them there. No ads or other pages follow the last free endpaper after page 192.
The book retains the rare original tissue guard with some foxing, and the interior is very good with only light soiling to the pages and general aging, but very good for paper from a popular children's book from 1867. There is a small closed tear to the bottom edge of page 69, about one-half inch. The original slate blue endpapers that were originally issued with this copy were replaced long ago by someone with yellow endpapers as shown. Or perhaps the original endpapers were yellow originally, I am seeing some variations of black and slate gray on these books. The endpapers definitely are old.

Sur le faux-titre, envoi du gendre de Renan, fondateur de la Ligue des droits de l'homme et père d'Ernest Psichari : « Au cher M. Hustin, Parce que je tiens beaucoup à cet exemplaire qui me fut donné de la main à la main par M. Renan. Ce jeudi 24 mai 1917. Jean Psichari. » La reliure est au chiffre de ce dernier.

This address covers mining, losses from Indian depredation, the new boundaries of the state, and gambling. "Gaming is an intolerable and inexcusable vice.... Every energy of the state should be invoked to suppress it." Relatively rare, and an early Nevada imprint.

Pleasing late 19th century wine red crushed morocco, gilt, covers with border of gilt hearts accented by dots and quatrefoils, upper cover with titling in the head and tail of frame, smooth spine with vertical titling, gilt-ruled turn-ins, top edge gilt. Wise 38. Board tending to splay just slightly, a hint of rubbing to joints and extremities, isolated minor marginal smudges, otherwise an excellent copy, clean and fresh in a lustrous binding. This small, simple, yet pretty binding in outstanding condition is the perfect enclosure for the lyrical poems contained within. Swinburne (1837-1909) was a virtuoso of verse, able to produce dazzling and enthralling lines in a wide range of meters and stanzaic forms. He was also a shocking pagan in terms of the content of his poetry, a significant portion of which was erotic. This work marked a move away from the fiercely personal content of his early work, and focused instead on his republican political interests. Swinburne's "Song of Italy" is dedicated to Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-72), an Italian politician, activist, journalist, and staunch republican, proponent of a unified Italy.

s.n, 1867. FIRST EDITION. Softcover. Original publisher's printed pale green wrappers (chipped). 128 pp. 8vo. 8-1/4" x 5-1/2". Some general wear & soiling. A touch of foxing. Unsightly abrasion to rear wrapper, resulting in some loss. Good. "A Book for the Family" in which are described, in the most graphic detail, over 100 murders in Cincinnati and environs. This highly curious volume represents a genuinely early American work in the literary genre now known as "True Crime," about which see especially Mark Steltzer, "True Crime: Observations on Violence and Modernism" (2007), passim.
