        HAWAII & FRENCH POLYNESIA IN 1850s] Ocherki Perom i Karandashom iz Krugosvetnogo Plavaniya v 1857, 1858, 1859 i 1860 godakh [i.e. Sketches in Pen and Pencil from the Circumnavigation in 1857, 1858, 1859 and 1860]

      M.O. Wolf, St. Petersburg 1867 - 2nd corrected ed. [6], 592 pp. 24,5x18 cm. With a lithographed title page and twenty-three tinted lithographed plates (complete). Modern (period style) gilt tooled half leather. Half title with a minor repair of blank lower corner, a few minor stains of blank fore edge, otherwise a very good copy. Rare early Russian travel account of a voyage to the Cape of Good Hope, Singapore, Hong Kong, Japan, Hawaii, Tahiti, Moorea and other places written by a doctor of naval clipper ''Plastun'', which went on a circumnavigation in 1857-1860. ''Plastun'' was a part of a group of Russian propeller driven naval ships which were sent to visit the newly acquired Russian territories in the Far East (annexed with the signing of the Russian-Chinese Treaty of Aigun in 1858) and to establish Russian presence in Chinese and Japanese ports. On board of the ''Plastun'' Vysheslavtsev called at Atlantic Islands (Cape Verde, Ascension Island and others), rounded Cape of Good Hope, visited Singapore, Hong Kong, several bays of the new Russian Amur region, Vladivostok and Nikolayevsk; spent almost a year in Japan, and returned to Kronstadt via Hawaii, Tahiti, Strait of Magellan, Buenos Aires and Rio de Janeiro. Separate chapters of the future book - essays about Cape of Good Hope, Atlantic Ocean, Hong Kong, Edo and others - were printed in the Russky Vestnik magazine in 1858-1860, under the general title ''Letters from clipper Plastun''. In 1862 the complete travel account was published by the Russian Naval Ministry which was in charge of publication of a number of important Russian expedition accounts in the 1800-1840s (voyages by Sarychev, Krusenstern and Lisyansky, Golovnin, Kotzebue, Luetke, Bellingshausen, Wrangel, and others). Vysheslavtsev's book was meant to continue the tradition of publication of Russian expedition accounts, especially because he not only wrote the text of the travel account, but also created a series of vivid sketches depicting landscapes and native people of the exotic destinations. The original sketches were redrawn to be printed as lithographs in the renowned Saint Petersburg lithograph printing house of Paul Petit; the artists in charge were the students of the Imperial Academy of Arts, including young Ivan Shishkin and Vasily Vereshchagin - future famous Russian artists. Our second edition of the book was issued five years later by a major publisher Mauritius Wolf, this publication included twenty-three lithographed plates (the same amount as in the Russian State Library copy) and is complete, although the title page calls for twenty-seven, like in the first edition. The completeness is confirmed by Forbes 2773. Among the illustrations are views of the Ascension Island, Whampoa, Hakodate, several bays in the Russian Far East, Magellan Strait, embankment in Rio de Janeiro; portraits of the natives from the Cape of Good Hope, Singapore, Gilyaks from the Amur Region, Japanese in Edo and Hakodate, and others. The 'Pacific' plates include views of Oahu Island, Pali (Oahu), two group portraits of Tahitian girls and the 'kanakas' (meant as native people of the Pacific islands), Fautaua waterfall (Tahiti), portrait of a New Caledonian on Tahiti, and three different views of the Papetoai Bay (Moorea). Chapter 7 of the account titled ''The Pacific'' contains a captivating description of the visit to Honolulu: city description, Diamond Hill, local society, funerals of a king's nephew, local police, public prosecution, Waikiki village, Nuuanu Pali lookout, hula hula dance, personality of Kamehameha IV who received the officers of the Russian squadron in his palace; 'Tahitian' part talks about Papeete and environs, history of discovery and colonisation of the island, king Pomare I, breadfruit trees, Papeuriri, local school, Fautaua waterfall, Moorea, introduction to the queen Pomare IV, and others. «Vysheslavitsev was both observant and adept at recording his impressions., a second edition was published in 1867; see No. 2773.

        Handbook of the Sphygmograph : Being a Guide to its use in clinical Research.

      London : Robert Hardwicke, 192 Picadilly, 1867, kl.8, VI, (2), 83, (1) pp., 3 Taf., 13 Fig., orig. Leinenband. First Edition of the "Handbook of the Sphygmograph : Being a Guide to its use in clinical research. To which is appended a Lecture delivered at the Royal College of Physicians on the 29th of March 1867 on the Mode and Duration of the Contraction of Heart in Health and Disease"."The first account of the use of the sphygmograph in England was published in The Lancet during 1865. It was part of a report of the proceedings of a meeting in London and mentions that Dr Francis E. Anstie was the first English physician to use the sphygmograph, which was described as 'an exquisitely designed instrument... of precision and remarkable beauty'. It goes on to say that Dr Burdon-Sanderson was also using the device (Anon. 1865). On 17 February 1866, another report appeared in the same journal (Walton 1866) in which abnormal pulse recordings taken with Marey's instrument from the right radial artery were compared with the normal tracings from the left radial artery. The differences between the sphygmograms were attributed to an aneurysm of the right axillary artery. This appears to have been the first report of the diagnostic use of the device in England. Later, in March 1866, the British Medical Journal published an extensive paper in two parts by Balthazar W. Foster of Birmingham. Foster later published a monograph describing the use of Marey's sphygmograph in England. The conclusion of Foster's monograph contains a brief but interesting exchange of letters between Foster and The Lancet over who really introduced the device to England. As we have noted, Anstie appears to have been the first to use the device, although Sir John Burdon Sanderson may also have been using it at the same time. Anstie himself subsequently published several articles on the sphygmograph and the correspondence appeared in The Lancet on 26 May and 9 June 1866.In 1867 J. B. BURDON-SANDERSON (1828-1905) published several reports on the sphygmograph and a monograph entitled 'Handbook of the Sphygmograph' (Burdon-Sanderson 1867)." N.H.

      Adelaide, David Gall, 1867. Duodecimo, vi, 82, 52 ('Chowla Advertiser') pages. Original flourescent green papered boards with expanded title page details repeated within a border on the front cover, and with the contents listed on the rear; covers slightly marked and a little rubbed, bumped and worn at the extremities, with the hinges a little cracked; spine sunned, lightly mottled and a little glue-stained; thin light tidemark to the top edge of the front endpaper; a very good copy of a scarce book rarely found with the spine intact (and internally this copy is nothing short of fine). 'Storrie exhibits a keen sense of satire not only with regard to conventional tales whose perclivities are mercilessly ridiculed but also with regard to colonial society itself' (Depasquale: A Critical History of South Australian Literature, 1836-1930). Incidentally, this is the first novel published in Adelaide. See Ferguson 16305 for confirmation of the Storrie/ McTavish connection.

Most" - Johann Most (1846–1906 in blue pencil, a second inscription to title page of April 1869 issue, and occasional marginalia and underlining to the text. Contents generally clean with occasional spotting and dampstains, some stab-holes visible at gutters, a few issues trimmed in the binding process, those printed on inferior paper stock fragile at the margins and with a few short tears and more toning than others, 1 full leaf (April 1868) and 1 half-leaf (January 1870) cut away and 4 other instances of excised portions clipped from the text by a previous owner (March 1866, pp. 47–8; March 1867, pp. 43–4; March 1869, p. 43–4; March 1870, pp. 37–8); a rare survival. First edition of Marx's formal announcements, both signed and unsigned, of the publication of the first volume of his magnum opus, Das Kapital, in the important and uncommon revolutionary socialist journal Der Vorbote, from the library of the German radical journalist and agitator Johann Most, who played a part in Capital's publication history and with whom Marx had a turbulent relationship. When the first volume of Capital was finally published on 14 September 1867, Marx and Engels "set about breaking through the silence of the German press" (Draper I 1867.1) by placing notices in various international papers, with limited success. In the following months Engels wrote many reviews, only some of which were accepted for publication, and while eventually advertisements and extracts would appear in the Beobachter, Bee Hive, and the Courrier Français, among a small number of others, by the start of 1868 "Capital is still getting the silent treatment in the bourgeois press [although] both wings of the German workers' movement give it considerable publicity" (Draper 1868.2). Marx had written to the founder and editor of Der Vorbote, Johann Philipp Becker (1809–1886), in April 1867 to pre-emptively ask for his help; as a result, the first advance announcement appeared in Der Vorbote's issue of the same month, with two further pre-publication announcements printed in the June and July issues. The official announcement of Capital's publication was printed in the September issue, with successive notices printed in October and November. These were some of the earliest notices to be printed after Capital's publication and are all included in this volume. Der Vorbote, published in 72 monthly issues from 1866 to 1871, was the official organ of the German-speaking section of the First International, edited by Becker and with highly valuable contributions from most of the major figures of 19th-century international communism such as Bebel, Engels, Liebknecht, Marx, and Sorge. This volume includes the full published proceedings of the first four Congresses of the International; Becker's many Manifestos on behalf of the German and Swiss factions of the International; coverage of the Paris Commune from 1871; and news and correspondence regarding German-speaking sections outside Europe, including, in several consecutive issues from 1870 to 1871, a series of articles under the headline "An die Deutschen New York's". Johann Most is best known for his later anarchist period in America, particularly in relation to the Haymarket plot, but his reputation as an agitator was established in Germany as the editor of a series of social-democratic papers including the Berliner Freie Press. Most was responsible for the first abridgement of Capital (volume 1) which was published as a small booklet in 1873 under the title Kapital und Arbeit. Ein populärer Auszug aus "Das Kapital" von Karl Marx (Draper ST/51). Taking issue with some of Most's abbreviations which he felt distorted the sense, Marx revised the abridgement from 1875–6 but stipulated that his name not be used in connection with it because it remained imperfect. A second edition appeared in April 1876 and it was translated into English in 1878. Although Marx planned to amend this translation and contribute a short preface, this plan was never realised. After being expelled from Berlin in 1878, Most then emigrated to London where he set up Freiheit as an émigré organ which published virulent attacks on the German party and its leaders (a stance which resulted in his expulsion by the 1880 party congress for slander). He repeatedly visited Marx and, despite his attempts to sway Marx to his more radical opinions and to convince him to write for his paper, Most only succeeded in distancing the author, who spoke out "against Most's type of propagandistic fustian as being the other side of the coin of Höchberg's pink parliamentarism" (Draper I 79.3). Engels agreed, dismissing Most's attacks as "empty screaming" in a letter to Becker in April 1880. However, despite their disapproval, when Marx and Engels were informed of Most's arrest in the wake of Alexander II's assassination – which the Freiheit had brashly praised – they immediately sent a letter to the London Daily News in his defence (1 April 1881, Draper ME176), and Marx even contributed to the Freiheit's fund against the English prosecution. Most fled to America in 1882, where he re-established Freheit and drew a following as an anarchist specialising in wild rhetoric; on the news of Marx's death, he gave a speech at the memorial meeting held in New York on 20 March 188. A well-preserved and complete run of Der Vorbote with an exceptional provenance.

        Large Rare Albumen Photographs By Renowned Photographers, Largely Featuring Views of Cairo and Baalbek, And With Captivating Portraits of Egyptians.

      Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, circa 1867-1880. Original albumen photographs taken by Félix Bonfils, renowned in his day for his extensive and stunning works, and also some by his associates and/or successors, largely featuring views of Cairo and Baalbek, and with captivating portraits of Egyptians themselves. At least eighteen (18) photographs are the work of Bonfils; seven (7) are the work of the Zangaki Brothers who were active in the same period. Contains 45 uncommonly large albumen print photographs, measuring approximately 28 x 22 cm, most numbered and bearing the photographer's embedded manuscript caption and his name, each mounted with incised corners recto and verso onto cardstock leaves. Oblong Crown Folio album measuring approximately 41 x 32 x 4 cm, Burgundy leather over burgundy cloth boards, five raised bands to spine. Some wear to boards, chips to album leafs, otherwise in Very Good Condition, a pleasing lot of very scarce views from a notable nineteenth century photographer. Félix Bonfils (1831-1885) was a French photographer and writer who was active, and widely celebrated, for his work in Egypt and the Middle East, producing a monumental photographic record of these regions. He settled to Beirut in 1867 where together with his wife he opened a photographic studio called "Maison Bonfils," which when joined by his son, became "F. Bonfils et Cie" in 1878. Renowned and highly sought after in his day, Bonfils was described by French archaeologist and historian Gratien Charvet (1826-1884) as having "initiated, executed and completed... with unequaled perseverance... one of the most considerable achievements - picturesque, artistic and scientific - of our epoch" with his "collection of photographs of the Orient's principal sites". Although there were a number of other European photographers in the region in this period, Bonfils was known for delivering unsurpassed meticulous quality. Despite his fame and unparalleled skill, Bonfils was, until recently, forgotten by most. Circa 1980, Father Carney E.S. Gavin, a curator for the Harvard Semetic Museum and founder of the Archives for Historical Documentation in Brighton, Massachussetts, revived the Bonfils family history, and as such, stirred up renewed ambition to attempt to acquire his photographs. Original photographs by Félix Bonfils are rare and have become invaluable as a primary source portrayal of customs and antiquity in the Near East. Only 18 glass negatives are known to have survived, most were washed clean to make fresh negatives; some were lost in troubled Beirut, and others were ground up to provide lens makers with fresh "ground glass" during a shortage in the 1950s. Eighteen or more photographs herein were taken and produced by Félix Bonfils. Also highly collectible, seven of the photographs were produced by the Zangaki Brothers [Adelphoi Zangaki], who were active from the 1870s into the 1890s and whose works are also sought after today. Little is known about the personal life of brothers Georgios and Constantinos Zangaki, except their Greek origin. Two commercial photographers working out of Port Said and Cairo, they specialized in historic or ancient Egyptian scenes, producing exceptional images of Egyptians performing their trades and traditional life customs. Their works are highly prized by historians and collectors for their insights into life at the time. At least 15 views are identified as being in Cairo, including street merchants selling water from large clay vessels, a princely young man in fine garments, two views of the Gezirah Palace, seven views of the noblest mosque and tomb in the necropolis of Mamluk Sultans at Kaid Bey showing the interior and exterior, a captivating image of the Minaret of Al Azhar Mosque with a muezzin calling for prayer, and two exterior views of the Great Mosque of Muhammad Ali Pasha. Also from Egypt, is one view of the Amenhotep III Sun Court at Luxor Temple in ancient Thebes. From Damascus in Syria we find 5 views, including a rare photograph of the dervishery, one of the legendary tomb inside the Great Umayyad Mosque which has been said since the 6th century to house the head of Saint John, a panoramic view of the city as seen from Salhieh, and two views of the courtyard and interior of "Maison de Chamieh." The ruins at Baalbek, situated in today's Lebanon some seventy-five kilometers north of Damscus, are presented in 13 views, including columns and arches, the Temple of Venus, the Temple of Jupiter, and lovely panoramic views to show its tremendous expanse. At the time, Lebanon was under Ottoman Rule with Egyptian occupation and French economic influence. One photograph of an ancient walled residence in ruins was taken in Biskra, Algeria, possibly being Sidi Okba. Finally, 9 striking images of the inhabitants conclude the album, several of which feature women in burkhas, mostly of the Egyptian style, though one appears to be Algerian. Most captivating is the view of a royal sedan carriage holding at least two women and being mounted front and back to luxuriously dressed camels and led by two male servants as guides.. Photo.
