In actual use, it proved hopelessly complicated and was abandoned, but not before Alexander Graham Bell used it to teach deaf mutes to speak. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Fathers and Sons

      Leypoldt and Holt, New York 1867 - FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH of Turgenev's masterpiece, one of the most celebrated and influential Russian novels of the nineteenth century. "Turgenev's greatest novel, Fathers and Sons (1862). succeeded in illustrating, with remarkable balance and profundity, the issues that divided the generations. The hero, Bazarov, is the most powerful of Turgenev's creations. A nihilist, denying all laws save those of the natural sciences, uncouth and forthright in his opinions, he is nonetheless susceptible to love and by that token doomed to unhappiness. In sociopolitical terms he represents the victory of the nongentry revolutionary intelligentsia over the gentry intelligentsia to which Turgenev belonged. In artistic terms he is a triumphant example of objective portraiture, and in the poignancy of his death he approaches tragic stature. The miracle of the novel as a whole is Turgenev's superb mastery of his theme, despite his personal hostility toward Bazarov's antiaestheticism, and his success in endowing all the characters with a quality of spontaneous life" (Britannica). Translated by Eugene Schuyler. New York: Leypoldt and Holt, 1867. 12mo, original gilt-stamped cloth. Discreet contemporary (dated 1867) owner signature and a later bookplate on front pastedown. Very slight wear to cloth, small ink stain to bottom of text block with slight bleed onto a few leaves. An exceptionally nice copy, very rare in this condition.

      Leypoldt & Holt, New York 1867 - Translated from the Russian by Eugene Schuyler. This copy Very Good or a little better with blue boards mottled and small loss to the cloth at the lower spine. Internally the book is tight, with uncracked hinges and page block, pencil bookseller notations on end papers and light to moderate foxing throughout, as is common. Originally published in Russia in 1862, this book remains the author's most important literary contribution. It tracks the growing divide between generations of Russians who adopt western theories first of liberalism then nihilism. As with many other works of this period, it also follows the emotional growth and love interests of parallel characters. It's influence can be felt in later works by Tolstoy and Dostoevsky as well as numerous western authors. Along with Gogol's "Dead Souls," this work is considered one of the earliest modern Russian novels. Very Good. [Attributes: First Edition]

        40 Miles Around New York¿29 ½ x 27 inches. [and, on verso] H. H. Lloyd¿s New Map Of The Metropolis, Including The Cities Of New York, Brooklyn, Jersey Cityt, Hoboken, &c¿

      New York, 1867 - With original red covers, separate; bright original color; some light offsetting, else fine condition. An unusual, scarce, two-sided map, one a large, striking map of the metropolitan region covering a radius of 40 miles in all directions from Manhattan, and the other a street plan of the city and the immediately adjoining areas. The maps, especially the former, reflect the vibrancy of the dynamic, post-Civil War city, as the city and its surrounding area can already be envisioned as an interconnected, single region, unified by a dense network of rail lines and roads. While this map still shows topography to some extent, this kind of detail has receded into the background just as its relevance had. The street plan, which also includes most of Brooklyn, Hoboken, and Jersey City, also has a transportation focus in the showing the numerous ferry routes connecting New York City and its surrounding areas.

        Das Stereoskop. Eine populäre Darstellung. 2., verm. u. verb. Auflage

      Leipzig, Teubner 1867 - Hirsch/H. IV, 918. - Sehr selten, nur im Bayer. BV nachweisbar, sonst seit 1950 in keiner deutschsprachigen Auktion verkauft. - Mit der Berufung Christian Theodor Georg Ruetes zum Ordinarius für Ophthalmologie waren die jahrelangen Bemühungen seines Vorgängers Friedrich Philipp Ritterich (1782 - 1866), der Augenheilkunde eine gleichberechtigte Stellung unter den medizinischen Fächern zu sichern, in Erfüllung gegangen. Die Universität Leipzig besaß damit den ersten ordentlichen Lehrstuhl für Augenheilkunde in Deutschland. Als einer der ersten Augenärzte Deutschlands machte Ruete die Studenten mit physiologisch-optischen Kenntnissen vertraut. Neben der physikalischen Optik maß er der Physiologie des menschlischen Auges große Bedeutung bei und suchte das physiologische Wissen mit dem der praktischen Augenheilkunde zu verbinden. So konstruierte er ein sogenanntes Ophthalmotrop, mit dessen Hilfe sich die Bewegungen des Auges verdeutlichen ließen. Besonders bekannt wurde er durch die Weiterentwicklung des Helmholtzschen Augenspiegels. Ruete gehört zu den Gründern der Reform der Augenheilkunde. Von ihm rührt die Augenspiegelung im ungekehrten Bilde und die Erfindung eines neuen Ophthalmotrops her. Er brauchte zuerst das Wort Uebersichtigheit (Hirsch). - Das vorliegende Werk über das Stereoskop beschreibt u.a. zunächst psychologische, physikalische und physiologische Vorbegriffe (die Sinnesorgane zur geistigen Wahrnehmung), Natur des Lichts, reelle und virtuelle Bilder, Bau des Auges etc., Beschreibung des stereoskopischen Sehens ohne Stereoskop, Beschreibung der verschiedenen Spiegel- u. Linsenstereoskope (Wheatstone, Brewster, Nachet, Helmholtz, Oppel), Darstellung stereoskopischer Bilder, ästhetischer Wert der Fotografie und der Stereoskopie u.v.a. - Es fehlt leider die Beilage mit den 27 stereoskopischen Bildern XII, 188 Seiten mit 59 Textholzschnitten, 1 Holzschnitt-Tafel Rotes Halbleder der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung, 8° [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Vijf jaren in Japan. (1857-1863). Bijdragen tot de kennis van het Japansche Keizerrijk en zijne bevolking.

      - Leiden, Van den Heuvell & Van Santen, 1867-1868. 2 volumes. 8vo (245 x 160mm). pp. xii, 335, (i); pp. vi, 357, (i), with 2 coloured frontispieces, 12 plates of which 10 coloured and 1 coloured folding map. Publisher's pictorial wrappers (spines repaired). First and only edition. During the 1850s the Tokugawa government decided to strengthen its national defense and invited naval officers and technicians to Nagasaki. One of them was J. Pompe van Meerdervoort, a naval surgeon from the Netherlands. He was asked by the Japanese authorities to establish a new system of medical education in Nagasaki. Assisted by Matsumoto Ryôjun and Shiba Ryôkai he established a western style hospital with 124 beds and a medical school. When Pompe left Japan England, France and the USA were already strengthening their pressure on Japan to open up the country, and the Dutch influence, that had continued for 250 years, gradually began to decline. Nevertheless Pompes achievements and the outstanding role he played in the modernization of Japanese medicine are highly esteemed in Japan.Later in 1865 the school's name was changed to Seitoku-Kan and after the Meiji-Restauration, it became the origin of the Medical School of Nagasaki University. Pompe's memoirs "Five years in Japan" describe the changing international situation in East Asia together with his medical activities and many observations on the Japanese society at his time.Pompe also experimented with photography, collaborating with some pupils he had taken over from his predecessor, Dr. J.K. van den Broek. Van den Broek was the first to introduce photography in Japan during the years he practised there (1853-1857). Under his tuition, a Japanese doctor, Keisai, was learning to take photographs using the daguerreotype process invented in 1839.Among Pompe's students was the first professional photographer in Japan, Ueno Hikoma. He opened a photographic studio in Nagasaki in 1862. Another of Pompe's students, Uchida Kyuichi, became famous as the first photographer ever to photograph the Emperor and Empress.Most plates show Japanese people in costumes, the frontispiece in vol. 1 shows the bay of Nagasaki and the frontispiece in vol. 2 shows the medical hospital at Nagasaki.Provenance: Bookplate of C.C.

The Claverings was originally serialized in the Cornhill Magazine in sixteen installments from February 1866 to May 1867. "Henry Clavering, a poor (if brilliant) schoolmaster, is thrown over by Julia Brabazon, who accepts instead the vicious but rich Lord Ongar. Harry determines to rise in the world and apprentices himself to the engineering firm of Beilby and Burton. He lodges with the Burton family, and despite the vulgarity of some of its members falls in love with the daughter Florence. Meanwhile, Lord Ongar has drunk himself to death and Julia, now a rich widow, throws herself at Harry who jilts Florence. After much indignation in the Burton family, he finally returns and marries her. Things are made easier when Harry’s cousins are drowned on a sailing trip, leaving him an estate and a title." (The Stanford Companion to Victorian Fiction).The last comparable copy to appear on the market was the Bradley Martin copy (with the binding decorated in gilt and black rather than gilt and blind), which was sold at Sotheby’s New York on May 1, 1990, for $6,600. "Sadleir was unable to distinguish priority of the two states of the binding." (The Library of H. Bradley Martin, Highly Important English Literature, Sotheby’s New York, May 1, 1990, Lot 3286).

        The Last Chronicle of Barset (First Edition)

      Smith, Elder, & Co. / J.B. Lippincott Company, London 1867 - FIRST EDITION in two 8vo volumes, half green calf with raised bands compartmented and gilt blind stamp decorated and morocco labels and marbled boards. Scarce. With thirty-two plates, plus thirty-two vignettes in the text. Some copies of this book have two pages of ads at the end of Volume II. This copy does not, but Sadleir states that these ads did not appear in many copies. Moderate wear to extremities. Overall a VERY GOOD set. 'I regard this as the best novel I have written. there is a true savour of English life all through the book'. The last of the six chronicles of the fictional Barsetshire, this work severed his working relationship with Millais, who was rejected in favour of George Smith. It is most famous for the stunning death scene of Mrs. Proudie, a literary coup de grace that Trollope later claimed to regret, despite its enormous and resonant impact on readers.

        Souvenir de l'Exposition universelle de Paris.

      [Paris] 1867 - in-4 oblong (36 x 27,5 cm), [63] ff. de papier fort non chiffrés, servant de support aux documents contrecollés, chagrin cerise, dos muet à faux-nerfs richement cloisonné et fleuronné, double encadrement de double filet à froid et de guirlande dorée sur les plats, titre poussé en lettres dorées au centre du plat supérieur, tranches dorées (reliure de l'époque). Manques de cuir aux deux coins inférieurs. Très intéressant et séduisant album d'amateur, regroupant toutes sortes de publicités et documents commerciaux collectés lors de l'Exposition universelle de Paris en 1867, appelée officiellement Exposition universelle d'art et d'industrie. Les documents se répartissent en trois séries principales : 1. Les prospectus commerciaux d'une feuille ou d'une demi-feuille, imprimés au recto ou aux deux pages (108 pièces). - 2. les simples cartes de visites des établissements représentés à l'Exposition (228 pièces, de format non encore standardisé). - 3. Enfin, de loin les plus élaborés, les livrets ou catalogues de plusieurs feuillets, avec présentation détaillée des produits (30 pièces, dont le plan-guide officiel publié par la Commission de l'Exposition). Il se présente quelques doublons, spécialement dans la première catégorie. Dans tous les cas, les informations sur les exposants et les produits présentés sont nombreux, considérables et surtout parfaitement contemporains, exprimés dans le "langage publicitaire" de l'époque, ce qui rend le document particulièrement intéressant tant pour l'histoire des techniques que de la pénétration des innovations dans la vie quotidienne. Tous les domaines ont fait l'objet de la collection réunie ; pêle-mêle : textiles, parfumerie, instruments de musique (dont les orgues Cavaillé-Coll), coffres-forts, cloches, machines à coudre, armes, ferblanterie, orfèvrerie, télégraphie sous-marine, fours, porcelaine, voitures, machines à vapeurs, wagons, etc.

        Leaves of Grass [Fourth Edition]

      Wm. E. Chapin and Co, New York 1867 - Publisher really the author with Chaplin as printer. This edition was issued in more than one state and priority appears to be uncertain. This variant is Myerson A.2.4.a.2. Its content pages list 'Leaves of Grass', 'Drum-Taps', and 'Songs Before Parting' (but not 'Sequel to Drum-Taps') though it contains 'Leaves of Grass' and 'Songs Before Parting' only as issued. The early binding is black half leather with gilt titles, decoration and publication year to the spine and blue cloth boards. The book is tight and square with the spine professionally and sympathetically relaid but with earlier endpapers preserved. Page block edges marbled. Internally very good with a blank section at the top of the title page replaced where an ownership signature is likely to have been cut away. There is now another ownership signature neatly to the top right corner of the ffep. There is an early head and shoulders photograph of Whitman as frontispiece. A nice copy of a scarce edition in very good and serviceable condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
