        Sequoia Wellingtonia. Mariposa Grove, South California

      London & Edinburgh 1867 - A very fine plate from Ravenscroft's 'The Pinetum Britannicum. A Descriptive Account of Hardy Coniferous Trees' Ravenscroft's work is the third (in order of publication) of the three great coniferous iconographies of the nineteenth century, following Bedford and Lambert. The very fine plates fall into two categories: botanical studies of details of the needles and fruit of the individual trees, and landscape studies of examples of individual trees in their natural habitat. This plate is an outstanding example of the former group, here lithographed by W.H. Schenk. Cf. Nissen, BBI, 1588; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p. 127; cf. Stafleu & Cowan 8685. Hand-coloured lithograph. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. Sheet size: 22 x 16 1/2 inches.

        Le Confessioni di un Ottuagenario.

      Le Monnier,, Firenze, 1867 - 2 voll. in-16° (181x110mm), pp. (4), XVIII, 498; (4), 596; legatura coeva m. pelle verde cupo con titolo, fregi e filetti in oro ai dorsi. Piatti marmorizzati. Minimi restauri alla legatura, qualche fioritura e alone. Ottimo stato. Edizione originale di uno dei maggiori romanzi della letteratura italiana (che assumerà poi il definitivo titolo di "Confessioni di un Italiano"), composto dal giovanissimo scrittore in soli otto mesi, tra il 1857 e 1858, e pubblicato postumo. Il Nievo era infatti annegato non ancora trentenne nel viaggio di ritorno dalla Sicilia, dove aveva fatto parte dei Mille garibaldini, nella notte tra il 4 e il 5 marzo 1861, nel naufragio del vapore Ercole, al largo della costa sorrentina. L'edizione venne stampata per volere e cura della poetessa Erminia Fuà Fusinato; alle pp. in cifre romane del primo vol. figurano dei cenni biografici sul Nievo a cura degli editori e un componimento poetico commemorativo dello scrittore padovano steso dalla stessa Fuà Fusinato. Nel suo capolavoro, ricco di pagine indimenticabili, originalissimo svolgimento della forma del romanzo storico in cui gli accadimenti del nostro Risorgimento si intrecciano con le vicende biografiche del protagonista, il Nievo dà vita fra l'altro al personaggio della Pisana, forse il più bel personaggio femminile di tutte le nostre lettere.

        Historia de las Indias de Nueva Espa?a e Islas de Tierra Firme

      Mexico City: Imprenta de Ignacio Escalante, 1867-1880 3 volumes: xvi+535 pages; 305+[1]-177 pages with Explination of the Codice Geroglifico of Mr Aubin by Alfred Chavero; 65 full-page engravings drawn from the Duran and Aubin manuscript, collates [1-32]+[1-10]+[1a]+[11a]+[2a-6a]+Aubin Codex [1a-16a]. Large Quarto (11 3/4" x 8 3/4") bound in original 3/4 leather with marbled boards. Introduction and atlas by Jose F Ramirez. From the library of George M Foster. 1st edition.Diego Durán (c. 1537–1588) was a Dominican friar best known for his authorship of one of the earliest Western books on the history and culture of the Aztecs, The History of the Indies of New Spain, a book that was much criticized in his lifetime for helping the "heathen" maintain their culture. Durán was born sometime around 1537 in Spain. His family traveled to Mexico when he was very young -- he said later that “although I did not acquire my milk teeth in Texcoco, I got my second ones there.” (History Ch. I), It was in Texcoco where he learned Nahuatl. His family was not extravagantly wealthy, and they did not own an encomienda, but his relatives were fairly well off slave-owners. When he was still young, his family moved to Mexico City where he attended school and was exposed to Aztec culture under the colonial rule of Spain, as well as the many Africans brought by the Spanish for slavery. According to Heyden, Durán was often puzzled by the mix of races and cultures and their significance for social class (Heyden xxv-xxvi). In 1556 he entered the Dominican convento, or monastery, and was sent to Oaxaca in 1561 after being trained in Mexico City. He resided for a time at a convento in Oaxtepec, and there he found many informants within the Church. He is believed to have been tutored by Fray Francisco de Aguilar, who had been a soldier involved in the siege of Tenochtitlan. De Aguilar later joined the Dominican order, and had much to tell Durán about the Aztecs at first contact. He was cited frequently by Durán in his History. Durán later became a vicar at a convento in Hueyapan and it was there that he learned the most from the native Nahuatl Aztecs. The conventos had been issued a decree by Charles V to preach the Christian word to native rural villages and Durán ventured into the villages frequently to converse with the natives there. The clergy were to also observe native customs and to search for ancient documents. particularly the lost Holy Scriptures of Saint Thomas (who was believed to have been the basis for the Aztecs' Quetzalcoatl. (Heyden xxvi-xxvii). He developed a close association with the people he was attempting to convert, which led him to criticize the clerics and conquistadors who never learned the natives’ language, writing “they should know the language well and understand [the people] if they have any pretense of obtaining fruit.. And the ministers should not acquiesce by saying they know a little bit of the tongue in order to heard confession and that is enough” (Book of the Gods and Rites) and scorns the Spaniards crude use of the language that made the natives laugh and scoff at them. Durán was torn between two worlds, that of his people, and that of the Aztec. On one hand, he respected them greatly and their government organization before conquest, and he grew to admire the people of Mexico, and often said so. On the other hand he was repulsed by certain acts of his native informants, particularly human sacrifice. It was, after all, his duty to evangelize them and his Catholic background gave him a great disdain for such things. Another of his duties was to document the cultural ways and practices of the native people to serve as a manual to other monks in their attempt to evangelize the so-called heathens. Although his purpose was to detail the “heathen practices” as a manual for other missionaries, he also wanted to make it pleasant to read and useful to others. In 1585 Diego Durán returned to Mexico City in ill health and worked in the convento there, Santo Domingo, as a translator from Nahuatl to Spanish for the Inquisition. He died in 1588 of an unknown illness (Heyden, xxix). The History of the Indies of New Spain, sometimes referred to as the Durán Codex, contains seventy-eight chapters spanning from the Aztec creation story until after Spanish conquest of Mexico, and includes a chronology of Aztec kings. The Durán Codex was unpublished until the 19th century, when it was found in the Library of Madrid by José Fernando Ramírez. Durán's work has become invaluable to archaeologists and others studying Mesoamerica. Although there are few surviving Aztec codices written before the Spanish conquest, the more numerous post-conquest codices and near-contemporary works such as Durán's are invaluable secondary sources for the interpretation of archaeological theories and evidence.George McClelland Foster, Jr born in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, on October 9, 1913, died on May 18, 2006, at his home in the hills above the campus of the University of California, Berkeley, where he served as a professor from 1953 to his retirement in 1979, when he became professor emeritus. His contributions to anthropological theory and practice still challenge us; in more than 300 publications, his writings encompass a wide diversity of topics, including acculturation, long-term fieldwork, peasant economies, pottery making, public health, social structure, symbolic systems, technological change, theories of illness and wellness, humoral medicine in Latin America, and worldview. The quantity, quality, and long-term value of his scholarly work led to his election to the National Academy of Sciences in 1976. Virtually all of his major publications have been reprinted and/or translated. Provenance from the executor of Foster's library laid in. Condition:Foster's date of acquiry (8/2/44) on volume 1 front paste down (no Foster stamp), marbled boards rubbed through. The Atlas volume which has become quite scarce because of a flooded basement of the printer wholly destroyed many copies and others were made up of the remaining, often with damaged leaves. This copy of the Atlas has some staining to the following plates: 4-8, 10, 15-17, 20, 22, 23 and 5a. Plates appendix 1a-16a refer to the Aubin codex. A good to very good set, internally very good.

        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.

        FATHERS AND SONS

      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]
