        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]

        A Second Century of Orchidaceous Plants

      London: L. Reeve and Co., . First edition 1867 - Pp. viii, with 100 full-page hand-colored lithographs by W. Fitch, each plate is accompanied by one or two pages of descriptive text. Publisher's original blind-stamped green pebble cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and front cover, and with the stamped gilt seal (probably after Bateman) on the front cover, lg 4to (12.5 x 10 inches). This fine publication is completely separate work from Hooker's volume 'A Century of Orchidaceous Plants' published in 1846. The Bateman volume consists of 100 fine hand-colored plates selected from orchids published in the 'Curtis Botanical Magazine' from 1846-1866. The selected images were the most attractive and easily cultivated orchidaceous plants. The larger format of the present work allowed these fine illustrations to be published without any folds. New and/or more complete descriptions of these orchids were provided by Bateman. The fine hand-coloring this work is superior to the Curtis Botanical Magazine images. Bateman is considered the leading expert on orchids in the 19th century. He is probably best known from his truly immense work 'Orchidaceae of Mexico and Guatamala.' See also Stafleu and Cowan 344, Pritzel 471 and Nissen BBI, 87. No previous ownership marks. A few scattered text pages with mild foxing, the fine hand-colored plates are bright and clean (only 3 plates show the slightest hint of marginal foxing); an exceptionally bright and clean copy in near fine condition.

        Les fleurs animees. Par J.J. Grandville. Texte par Alph. Karr, Taxile Delord et le Cte. Foeulix. Nouvelle edition avec planches tres soigneusement retouches pour la gravure et le coloris par M. Maubert, peintre d'histoire naturelle attachŽ au Jardin des Plantes.

      Paris; Garnier Freres, [n.d., 1867]. - "Though the images in the book are of Grandville's time, his manner of proceeding is that of an artist of the modern movement, exploring the same subject through a sequence of slight but significant variations. Most of the plates show an elegant lady accompanied by respectful creatures, animals and insects, even fish and reptiles. As the series nears its end there are more elaborate scenes of flower-ladies in groups. A little world is created, governed by its own laws, which was full of significance to Grandville and hence becomes so to the reader as well. his first biographer wrote in the preface to Les Žtoiles (pp. viii-ix): 'The Fleurs animŽes are the very thought of Grandville; they were his favorite work, the work into the execution of which he put all that was in him of poetic and gracious originality, of dexterity of mind and observation, of that prodigious perspicacity which made him divine affinities hitherto unperceived by anyone and discover new worlds'" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, 198.

        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.

"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.

'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.

      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.

        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.
