        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).

      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.

Les documents se répartissent en trois séries principales : 1.

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]

        ALS signed John Bowring.

      1867 - One page hand written letter signed 'John Bowring', to a W. Dixon, possibly the English author and editor William Hepworth Dixon, referring to Bowring's friendship with Louis Philippe, the king of France, and General Dumouriez. The complete text: "My Dear Sir, You may perhaps not deem this (ornate) contribution to history which I enclose unacceptable. I was very intimate with L. P. having been introduced to him by the only man whom I remember to have had any real influence over him, (one) General Dumouriez." Bowring was an accomplished linguist, writer, translator and diplomat. Bowring served as the fourth governor of Hong Kong from 1854 to 1859, and became involved in several incidents, including the Arrow Incident and the attacks on Canton which precipitated the Second Opium War. Even though there were standing instructions from the home government to avoid armed conflict with China, Bowring waited only until naval forces that had been involved in the Crimean War were available, and then ordered British gunboats under Rear Admiral Sir Michael Seymour to "punish" Canton. Bowring and Seymour were commended for their actions by Lord Clarendon, the Foreign Secretary. The war served as a pretext for advancing British and foreign interests in China such as the loosening of trade restrictions and the continuation of the opium trade.Bowring was a prolific author, writing accounts of his missions, works on poetry, and political & economic treatises. In his 'Autobiographical Recollections', Bowring writes of Louis Philippe and Dumouriez: "I was then intimate with the Duke of Orleans, who was in disgrace at Court. He had been denied the privilege of sitting in the Chamber of Peers, no higher title than Serene Highness was conceded to him, and it was believed that he was the centre of a hundred conspiracies to overturn the government. It was supposed, as I had travelled much, and had had much intercourse with the liberals of Europe, that I was a secret agent, as I undoubtedly was a personal friend of Louis Philippe, to whom I had been originally introduced by General Dumouriez ." Charles-Francois du Perier Dumouriez (1739 –1823) was a French general who distinguished himself in the French Revolution, but ultimately defected to the Austrians, having been defeated by them at Neerwinden in 1793, and having fallen under suspicion of the French Directory. He is said to have fled from France on the horse of the future King Louis Philippe. 5 1/4 x 8in., cream paper, with 'Claremont, Exeter', the family estate's embossed stamp at top. Written and signed clearly in black ink, dated 20 May 1867. A bit ruffled at edges, closed short tear, old folds o/w very good. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

Contemporary green half calf, richly gilt spines, gilt edges. The first edition was published in 1847. "Of all his work, this is his most graceful fantasy: the fifty-two plates of court beauties in floral haute couture present a suite of fashionable tableaux redolent of the sentimental spirit of French Romanticism, at the end of the July Monarchy and in the predawn of the Second Empire. This briljant assembly of the Court of Flora has all the elements of Romantic ballet with its highly conventionalized poses, fanciful costumes, and magical settings. To these Grandville has playfully added attendant beetles, crickets, butterflies, moths, and caterpillars, those diminutive inhabitants of the garden, in variant agressive or sycophant roles" (Wick, P.A.

        Storia delle Cinque Giornate di Milano narrata al popolo italiano da Mario Paganetti

      Paolo Inversini Librajo Editore, Milano 1867 - n 8°(26 x 19,5); pagine (2),964, (4). Legatura coeva in mezza pelle con titolo e filetti in oro, fregi al dorso. Raro esemplare di pre-edizione; nel frontespizio non è riportata la data del 1868; il nome però è già quello del Paganetti conosciuto con lo pseudonimo di Piero Mattigana che a fronte dell'impossibilità di realizare l'opera da parte di Davide Besane si sostitui allo stesso. In terza pagina compare ancora la dedica a Garibaldi del Besana datata 15 marzo 1867 e il ringraziamento dello stesso Garibaldi (16 marzo 1867) al Besana, segue la Nota tipografica che recita "Circostanze indipendenti dalla propria volontà avendo impedito al Signor Besana di mantenere le promesse da lui fatte all'Editore di scrivere la presente narrazione, ne assume il compito il Signor Mario Paganetti, conosciuto nel mondo letterario sotto lo pseudonimo di Piero Mattigana". Il travaglio che accompagnò quest'opera determina nelle diverse pre-edizioni un numero variabile di tavole litografiche relative ai personaggi che ebbero parte nei fatti qui narrati, tantè che in alcuni variabili si riscontrano anche aggiunte di fotografie d'epoca; il ns. esemplare conta 17 tavole Litografiche a firma Rossetti. Contiene il testo di quello che già allora viene titolato come Inno Nazionale di Goffredo Mameli (interessante notare le differenze con il testo che diventerà poi nel 1946 Inno Nazionale). Opera molto rara in buona legatura d'epoca, carte interne con qualche leggera ossidazione, nell'angolo alto di sinistra per alcune decine di pagine sono presenti due tarletti che non toccano mai il testo e che per la maggiore sono stati restaurati. Esemplare più che discreto.

Kirmisson figure au verso de la page de faux-titre de chaque volume. Dernier volume en toile noire, couverture conservée, mouillure angulaire, quelques rousseurs. Première édition française du deuxième ouvrage fondamental de Virchow, complément du précédent, mais resté inachevé. Il est rare de le trouver comme ici complet des 3 volumes et de la 1ère livraison seule parue du 4ème volume. Cet ouvrage ne fut pas traduit en anglais. Virchow estime que les tumeurs proviennent de tissus normaux, qui existent ou non dans la région où la tumeur se développe (tumeurs homologues ou hétérologues). Il reconnaît le rôle essentiel du tissu conjonctif dans la formation des tumeurs, mais pense que toutes les tumeurs malignes sont hétérologues et que notamment les carcinomes se développent par métaplasie à partir du tissu conjonctif. Cette théorie erronée de Virchow - ¿ the most unfortunate mistake of his life¿ (Haagensen) - sera combattue par Remak et sera clairement rejetée par Waldeyer en 1872. L¿étude des sarcomes est novatrice - « creating the modern concept of sarcoma » (Haas) -. La leçon 25 sur les tumeurs vasculaires est également remarquable. Virchow crée dans cet ouvrage les termes « tératome », « cellule géante » et « cellule géante mutinucléée ». Provenance prestigieuse : Edouard Kirmisson (1848-1927), qui commença ses études de médecine à Nantes et les acheva à Paris, devint professeur de clinique chirurgicale des maladies des enfants à Trousseau puis aux Enfants-Malades. Il fut le premier président de la société française d¿orthopédie et membre de l¿Académie de médecine. cf. Haagensen.

        O-KEE-PA: A RELIGIOUS CEREMONY; AND OTHER CUSTOMS OF THE MANDANS.

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, . 1867 - vii,52pp. including half title, plus thirteen full-page color plates depicting the Mandan Torture Ceremony. Half title. Quarto. Modern half morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt, leather label. Original fly leaf and half title chipped at upper corner (no loss). Text lightly tanned, plates clean. A very good copy. First American edition, actually the same sheets and printing as the London edition of the same year, but with a cancel titlepage. Catlin spent some fourteen years among the various North American Indian tribes and left the most authentic anthropological record of an already vanishing people. He wrote O-KEE- PA. in response to an article appearing in an 1866 issue of Truebner's monthly catalogue. The article attributed to Catlin the authorship of an "indescribably lascivious pamphlet" on the secret customs of the Mandans (see Sabin 11528). O-KEE-PA. is as much a defense of Catlin as of the Mandans, a tribe who were mostly found on the west side of the Missouri River, most of whom were destroyed by a smallpox epidemic in 1837. Catlin states in his preface that of all the numerous customs which he had recorded, nothing was so peculiar and surprising as the O-kee-pa ceremony of the Mandans. The curious rite of O-kee-pa is shown in "horrible fidelity" (Field) in the thirteen outstanding color plates. BENNETT, p.22. FIELD 262. HOWES C244, "b." SABIN 11543.

        Zoological Sketches by Joseph Wolf. Made for the Zoological Society of London, from animals in their vivarium, in the Regent's Park. Explanatory text by D.W. Mitchell and Philip Lutley Sclater.

      London: Henry Graves & Company, 1861-1867. - 2 volumes. Folio (20 x 13 4/8 inches). Letterpress title-pages, list of subscribers. Additional mounted hand-coloured lithographic title-pages printed by Vincent Brooks, and 100 fine hand-coloured lithographic plates, drawn on stone by Joseph Smit after the drawings of Joseph Wolf, each plate cut to the edge of the image and mounted on thin card in imitation of a watercolour, with the caption printed in gilt lettering beneath, as issued. Contemporary half maroon morocco, purple cloth, gilt, all edges gilt (extremities scuffed, edges of cloth lifting, unevenly faded). "WITHOUT EXCEPTION, THE BEST ALL-ROUND ANIMAL PAINTER THAT EVER LIVED" (Sir Edwin Landseer) First edition, with the revised and final text by Philip Lutley Sclater. The plates were originally issued monthly with an accompanying temporary text for parts I-VII written by David William Mitchell, secretary to the society. On Mitchell's death in 1859, Sclater completed the work, selecting the subjects and writing both the initial letterpress and then the final published text, as here, which was issued with the thirteenth and final part. The work was commissioned by the Council of the Zoological Society in 1852, to provide "an accurate artistic record of the living form and expression of the many rare species of animals which exist from time to time in the menagerie". The council chose Wolf, already well-known for his work for the ornithologist Rüpell and Gould's "Birds of Great Britain". Originally from Prussia, Wolf's paintings of wild animals are renowned for their spectacular use of colour: pinks, blues, and greens; for the astonishing realism of feet, fur, and feather texture; and for their detailed backgrounds, which often include smaller but still perfectly painted and fully animated. As a young man he was apprenticed to Gebrüder Becker, lithographers at Koblenz, where he was employed as designer, principally of trade circulars. A chance meeting with Eduard Rüppell, the ornithologist and explorer, "gave him an introduction to the director of the grand ducal natural history museum at Darmstadt, Johann Kaup. Wolf obtained employment in Darmstadt as a lithographer with the publisher Ernst Kern, and in his free time worked for Rüppell, executing drawings for Rüppell's "Systematische Uebersicht der Vögel Nord-Ost-Afrikas" (1845). He was subsequently given illustrative work for Hermann Schlegel and H. Wulverhorst's "Traité de fauconnerie" (1844), but an attack of ague forced his return to Darmstadt, where he attended the art school, going in 1847 to study at the Antwerp Academy. In February 1848, as revolution spread across the continent, Wolf went to London at the invitation of David William Mitchell, secretary of the Zoological Society of London. There he assisted Mitchell with a British Museum-based project, illustrating Robert Gray's "Genera of Birds" (1844-9); afterwards he assisted John Gould with illustrations for "Birds of Great Britain" (1862-73). Two books may be considered especially his, though he did not write the text: "Zoological Sketches" [as here], issued in two series (1861 and 1867), and "Life and Habits of Wild Animals", with letterpress by D. G. Elliot (1874); the latter was reissued in 1882 as "Wild Animals and Birds: their Haunts and Habits" (Clemency Thorne Fisher for DNB).Anker 539; Fine Bird Books (1990) p.158; Nissen IVB 1012; BM(NH) V,p.2349; Wood p.633.

        The Last Chronicle of Barset

      London: Smith, Elder and Co., 1867. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. A Very Good copy of the first edition in book form of this famous Trollope novel, in the Publisher's original blue cloth with the front boards blind stamped and gilded and with the spines gilded as well, bound from the original Parts. This copy shows rubbing to the corners and common wear and chipping to the spine overhangs, and general edge rubbing. The front joint (interior) of Volume I is cracked at the top portion thereof beween the frontis and its adjoining page and the last page of text in Volume I is browned but remains quite legible. The pages rather clean bright and the plates have been bound without tissue guards. The Last Chronicle of Barset was first published in 32 weekly Parts. Some buyers would collect the Parts issue and then have the sheets bound in the Publisher's cases. This is such a case, bound from the Original Parts (not from the later-issued sheets which were for use only in bound sets). Sadleir notes two states for the Parts issue (as here bound in the cases). In this set, Volume I shows the title page in the second state (otherwise, the first and second states identical), the title page of Volume II shows characteristics which do not match either state, showing a characteristic said to be exclusive to the first state as well as a characteristic said to be exclusive to the second state, the Table of Contents is second state, and the text and illustrations are first state. In Volume II, on page 298 at line 21, the third word reads "Crawley", an error later corrected to read "Toogood". The Last Chronicle of Barset is the sixth and last of Trollope's famed Barsetshire Novels and the novel of which in his Autobiography he stated "I regard this as the best novel I have written. I was never quite satisfied with the development of the plot, which consisted in the loss of a cheque, of a charge made against a clergyman for stealing it, and of absolute uncertainty on the part of the clergyman himself as to the manner in which the cheque found its way into his hands." A Near Fine to Fine copy and rather uncommon when in a condition as nice as is this copy.
