        Sturmgepeitschte Landschaft, 1867

      1867. Aquarell auf Papier, unten links signiert: "AReinhardt" und unten rechts datiert: "im April 1867", 25,1 x 35,3 cm. Auch wenn August Reinhardt seine Ausbildung zum Maler in Leipzig bei den beiden nazarenisch geprägten Malern Gustav Jäger (1808-1871) und Bernhard Neher (1806-1886) und später in Weimar bei Friedrich Preller d.Ä. (1804-1875) absolvierte, orientiert sich das vorliegende Blatt eher an den Werken der späten Ludwig Richter-Schule. Malweise und Bildgestaltung lassen an Victor Paul Mohn oder Albert Venus denken. Dieser Kreis wird Reinhardt nicht fremd gewesen sein, hatte er doch während seines Rom-Aufenthaltes 1852 bis 1854 Kontakt zu Heinrich Franz-Dreber, dem Lieblingsschüler Richters. Von ihm wird Reinhardt auch die Lockerung des Strichs erlernt haben, denn Dreber hatte zu jener Zeit die scharfe Feder Richters bereits gegen den weichen, malerischen Kohlestift getauscht, was dann auch Arnold Böcklin stark beeinflussen sollte. In der farblichen Durcharbeitung unseres Aquarells setzt Reinhart gezielt auf das Verlaufen und Übereinanderschichten der Farben, um nuancierte Abstufungen zu erreichen. Dies ergibt ein variationsreiches Farbenspiel, das nahezu vollständig auf die konturgebende Linie verzichtet. Die dürren, windgepeitschten Äste sorgen hierbei für einen spannenden Kontrast. So gelingt Reinhardt eine intensive Wiedergabe des aufziehenden Gewitters.

        Petroleum. (Correspondence, &c., Respecting Existence of, in New South Wales.)

      - Sydney, Govt Printer 1867. Foolscap folio sewn as issued (a bit used); 22pp, litho map & 2 plates, illustrations through the text. The first publication of any note on petroleum in Australia, or at least the possibility of it, and necessary investigations, results of examinations, and so on. The search seems to have been kicked off in 1866 by William Fane de Salis sending out a copy of Lesley's 1865 paper on the Kentucky petroleum basin, 'the only paper as yet published giving any reliable scientific account of the strata' in the hopes that comparative work could be done. That paper is reprinted here, from the copy kindly given by Murchison. What is not in this paper but is in the columns of The Empire is that the Minister for Lands ignored the offer of de Salis and that a Lands Department clerk responded 'the Minister for Lands does not consider it advisable to republish Mr Lesley's pamphlet as proposed by you'. Neither would the Lands Department, 'this incubus'. release Lesley's paper for The Empire to print, prompting the outraged columnist of The Empire to mutter darkly about the 'little games played some time ago in the matter of certain mineral lands at Illawarra'. 'Is there a disinterested and intelligent man in the colony who does not believe in his heart that the blowing of the Lands Office into perdition, with all its accumulated stores of red tape, useless maps, and sickening arrears of correspondence, would be one of the best things that could happen for the welfare of the community?' All this is not quite true, the correspondence in this paper tells a slightly different story but still, in all this is an education in the power of print, most obvious in the ability of the press to push along a recalcitrant bureaucracy but more interesting is the potency held by what was considered the sole copy of an otherwise unobtainable pamphlet. Lesley's paper itself is rare, certainly it was missed by Swanson's bibliography of oil and gas. It's almost unnecessary to add that this Australian paper also doesn't appear.

        An Examination of Sir William Hamilton's Philosophy, and of the Principal Philosophical Questions Discussed in His Writings

      London - Longmans, Green, Reader and Dyer, 1867. London - Longmans, Green, Reader and Dyer, 1867 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Renowned philosopher John Stuart Mill's influential work examining a respected metaphysician. Third Edition. Publisher's catalogue to the rear. John Stuart Mill (20 May 1806 8 May 1873) was a British philosopher, political economist and civil servant. He was also an influential contributor to social theory, political theory, and political economy. He has been called the most influential English-speaking philosopher of the nineteenth century. Mill's conception of liberty justified the freedom of the individual in opposition to unlimited state control. He was a proponent of utilitarianism, an ethical theory developed by Jeremy Bentham. Hoping to remedy the problems found in an inductive approach to science, such as confirmation bias, he clearly set forth the premises of falsification as the key component in the scientific method. Mill was also a Member of Parliament and an important figure in liberal political philosophy. Sir William Hamilton, 9th Baronet (8 March 1788 6 May 1856) was a Scottish metaphysician. Two visits to Germany in 1817 and 1820 led to William's taking up the study of German and later on that of contemporary German philosophy, which was almost entirely neglected in British universities. In 1829 his career of authorship began with the appearance of the well-known essay on the Philosophy of the Unconditioned, the development of the principle that for the human finite mind there can be no knowledge of the Infinite. Condition: Smartly rebound in marbled paper boards with a buckram spine and leather spine label. Externally very good, just a little shelfwear and one or two marks. Internally, firmly bound. Bright and clean throughout. Overall: NEAR FINE.

      Olms Verlag, Berlin -1885. Reprint: Hildesheim 2008. 1867 - LXXVIII/3298 S. mit 99 Karten auf einer DVD in Band 1 HISTORIA SCIENTIARUM "Mit dem Reprint der Schriften Leopold von Buchs steht uns nun das Werk eines der Begründer der modernen Geologie zur Verfügung, eine wahre Goldgrube für den Wissenschaftshistoriker" (Peter Kühn, Geohistorica, Heft 5/2009) Seine Zeitgenossen würdigten ihn als einen "deutschen Wissenschaftsfürsten", gleichzustellen mit seinem lebenslangen Freund Alexander von Humboldt (1774-1853). Über mehr als ein halbes Jahrhundert war Leopold von Buch (1774-1853) eine der unbestrittenen Leitfiguren der neuen Wissenschaft der Geologie und zugleich einer der bekanntesten deutschsprachigen Naturforscher überhaupt. Mit seinen Arbeiten prägte er maßgeblich das moderne geologische Weltbild. Er schuf ein neues Verständnis der vulkanischen Erscheinungen als Ausdruck erdinnerer Prozesse, er begründete die noch heute geltende erdgeschichtliche Gliederung der deutschen Juraformation, und er veröffentlichte die erste vollständige geologische Karte Deutschlands; Von Buch förderte weiter die Entwicklung der Paläontologie und der Meteorologie, er war Mitbegründer der „Deutschen Geologischen Gesellschaft" und ein gesuchter Ratgeber vieler europäischer Forschungsreisender. Die wenige Jahre nach seinem Tod von einer Gruppe Berliner Geologen herausgegebenen, hier erstmals wieder im Druck zugänglich gemachten „Gesammelten Schriften" sind eine herausragende Quelle der Geschichte der Erdwissenschaften im 19. Jahrhundert und ein lebendiges Zeugnis der Wissenschaftspraxis der Biedermeierzeit. Das vorliegende Werk möchte so nicht zuletzt einen Beitrag leisten zu einem besseren Verständnis dieser Zeit als einer eigenständigen Epoche der Kulturgeschichte der Wissenschaften.

        Hetch Hetchy Flora: A Collection of Wildflowers Painted on May 22, 2013

[18] pp. 9 watercolor paintings of wildflowers, 1 watercolor painting of Hetch Hetchy Reservoir from O&#39;Shaughnessy Dam, 1 watercolor map, five ornamental pages of handwritten and rubricated text; text clean, unmarked. Bound between blue morocco leather boards, front and back covers have wooden replicas of a plant press used in the early twentieth century by botanist Willis Jepson, water color front cover label; binding square and tight. Housed in a two-toned cloth covered clamshell box. Fine. This book was inspired by the work of Willis Linn Jepson (1867-1946), California&#39;s most distinguished botanist of the early twentieth century. Jepson&#39;s life-long interest in botany began in childhood; he graduated from the University of California in 1889, and received a PhD from the same institution in 1899, becoming professor emeritus at UC Berkeley in 1937. When Jepson was 25 years old in 1892, he was a founding member of the Sierra Club. Among his books is A Manual of the Flowering Plants of California (1925). Jepson collected plant specimens in the meadows of the Hetch Hetch Valley. Donna Thomas painted some of these same flowers and more on May 22, 2013 beside Hetch Hetchy Reservoir. Donna Thomas&#39;s original art work and calligraphed text were reproduced by digital printing processes onto Peter Thomas&#39;s handmade paper. These pages were then sewn onto larger sheets of loft dried granite-like paper Peter made for the book. The binding design is based on the structure of Jepson&#39;s plant press.

        Poems and Letters of Thomas Gray

      London - Chiswick Press, 1867. London - Chiswick Press, 1867 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A beautifuledition of Gray&#39;s poems and letters with monochrome tipped-in photographs. With amonochrome portrait tipped-in to frontispiece, a decorative title page, decorative head and tail pieces and capitals. A presentation copy for Eton College for 1870 with presentation page with ink inscription bound in to front. Gray was educated at Eton College where his uncle was one of the masters. He recalled his schooldays as a time of great happiness, as is evident in his Ode on a Distant Prospect of Eton College. He made three close friends at Eton: Horace Walpole, son of Prime Minister Robert Walpole, Thomas Ashton, and Richard West. The four prided themselves on their sense of style, their sense of humour, and their appreciation of beauty. With a biographical introduction by his friend Horace Walpole and with notes following both the poems and the letters. Thomas Gray (26 December 1716 - 30 July 1771) was a poet, letter-writer, classical scholar and professor at Cambridge University. Gray began seriously writing poems in 1742, mainly after his close friend Richard West died. Gray spent most of his life as a scholar in Cambridge, and only later in his life did he begin travelling again. Although he was one of the least productive poets (his collected works published during his lifetime amount to fewer than 1,000 lines), he is regarded as the foremost English-language poet of the mid-18th century. In 1757, he was offered the post of Poet Laureate, which he refused. Condition: In a half calf binding with marbled paper covered boards. Externally, smart with only minor shelfwear. Internally, firmly bound. Bright with only the odd handling mark and some spotting to plates and marks to some pages. Overall: NEAR FINE.
