        Handbuch Der Physiologischen Optik [Physiological Optics]

      Leipzig: Leopold Voss, 1867. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Leipzig: Leopold Voss 1867. First Edition. Rebound in modern black cloth faux leather with red and gilt spine label, new endpapers and rear pocket for the plates. xiv (i - blank, ii - series half-title), 874, [1] pp. 11 plates, loose, stored in pocket; first 5 are paper, last 6 are thin board. All plates clean and complete except plate 1 is in 2 pieces with small loss at center, and plate 4 is an inexpensive FACSIMILE. The group also contains the original title page for the Atlas, volume 2, laid down on paper with loss at the right margin affecting the 'IK' in 'OPTIK' with fraying. Pages clean and in good state except for very marginal dampstaining to the book's top edge, only touching a few lines of the text in the last 150 pages or so. Trimmed when rebound, inner margins a bit tight but readable. Previous owner's bookplate, and autograph note pasted onto one of the new endpapers. Garrison/Morton 1513 notes that the first edition, published in 1867, is "One of the greatest books on physiological optics. It includes Helmholtz's revival of the Young theory of color vision." Heirs of Hippocrates Online notes that Helmholtz was "One of the scientific giants of his age [he] made fundamental advances in both physiology and physics, including the establishment of the first law of thermodynamics [he] became the first to measure the speed of a nerve impulse [his] extensive investigations into physiological optics led to his invention of the ophthalmoscope, now one of the most common and useful tools in clinical medicine." "Because Helmholtz's name is linked so closely with physics and electrophysiology, it is sometimes forgotten that he was a physician who held posts at a number of prominent medical schools. It was during his tenure at Heidelburg that this monumental treatise [referring to Handbuch der physiologischen Optik] on optics was written. Originally issued in parts between 1856 and 1866, the work provided the first real description of optical physiology including the mechanism of accommodation, the phenomenon of color vision, and the measurement of lens curvature." We offer here the first book edition, published in 1867. Garrison & Morton 1513; Grolier-Horblit 49b; Heirs of Hippocrates Online 1887; Norman 1046.

        Exposicion que el Illmo. S.D.D. Francisco Orueta, obispo de Trujillo, dirije al Illmo. S.D.D. Jose Sebastian de Goyeneche, dignisimo arzobispo de Lima, sobre el proyecto de Lei de desamortizacion de bienes eclesiasticos

      Trujillo [Peru]: Impreso por F. Rázuri 1867. First edition. Gray paper wrappers. Wrappers soiled, two small paper remnants on front edge most likely from a seal being removed, and one partial paper stamp on rear, inked numeral to corner, spine worn at foot, scattered foxing but overall contents clean and still very good. Sm. 8vo. Francisco Orueta's argument against confiscation of church property. The Catholic Church had seen the adoption of the 1860 constitution in Peru as an assault on its power. Another assault was launched in in late 1866 and early 1867 by Fernado Casos (1828-1881), a revolutionary, author of a history of Peru and two historical novels, and liberal member of the Congreso Constituyente who authored a bill for the confiscation of Church property (republished in this volume after the preface by Jose Sebastian, Archbishop of Lima). Francisco Orueta y Castrillón (1804-1886), Bishop of Trujillo, attacks the proposed law as inaccurate, exaggerated, having no foundation in law nor natural justice: "El Proyecto de desamortizacion presentado al Congreso, cuyos fundamentos, unos parecen nada conformes a la ciencia juridica, y otros inexactos y exajerados, desconoce los derechos que resultan del dominio que compete a la Iglesia en los bienes que posee, y viola los principios generales de la justicia natural." Scarce. We could find none listed at auction. BN Peru has a copy and OCLC locates only five others: Harvard Law, Univ.Texas, and three at the Univ. Calif. None on Copac or any online European or Latin American libraries. Quiñones: Imprenta en el norte del Perú p. 31.

        WEN-CHIEN TZU-ERH CHI, A SERIES OF PAPERS ... DOCUMENTARY CHINESE

      1867. Fine. [CHINESE LANGUAGE] WADE, Thomas Francis. WEN-CHIEN TZU-ERH CHI, A SERIES OF PAPERS SELECTED AS SPECIMENS OF DOCUMENTARY CHINESE, Designed to Assist Students of the Language as Written by the Officials of China. In Sixteen Parts, with Key. London: Trubner & Co., 1867. First edition. Two quarto volumes. xii, 456 pp.; iv,72,52 pp. 30 x 23 cm. The second volume has a separate title-page: KEY TO THE TZU ERH CHI. DOCUMENTARY SERIES. VOLUME I. CONTAINING TRANSLATIONS OF PAPERS 1 TO 75, AND NOTES TO PAPERS 1 TO 65, INCLUSIVE. Depsite the Volume 1 designation, there were no further volumes published. Both volumes have the title in Chinese characters at the head of the title-page, as well as a contemporary ink ownership (of J. E. Woodruff). In worn and rubbed contemporary bindings with marbled sides. Both volumes are missing the original red leather backstrip. The spine of the first volume, WEN-CHIEN TZU-ERH CHI, has been neatly covered with brown cloth tape and its hinges strengthened with white cloth tape. Additionally, Volume 1 shows internal and external evidence of worming. Internally, the worm damage is confined to the margins without affecting the text and there are some pencil notes. Sir Thomas Francis Wade (1818- 1895), a British soldier turned diplomat and Sinologist, was the first professor of Chinese at Cambridge University. He developed a system of romanizing the Chinese language based on pronunciation conventions of the Beijing dialect. The system was later modified by Herbert Giles (another diplomat and scholar who had succeeded him as professor of Chinese at Cambridge) and became known as the Wade-Giles system. It was widely used throughout much of the twentieth century to represent the sounds of Mandarin in Western publications and is still used to represent some personal and place names. This work was prepared with the express purpose of preparing individuals destined to join Her Majesty&#39;s Consular Service in China with the written language of government as it appeared in books and in official correspondence.

        The Chromolithograph. A journal of Art, Decoration and the Accomplishments

      London: Zorn & Co.,, 1867-9. 2 volumes quarto (276 × 191 mm). Contemporary black calf on bevelled boards, title gilt to spines, raised bands, gilt devices in the compartments, attractive gilt and blind panelling to the boards, all edges gilt, cream surface-paper endpapers. Volume I with 78 tipped-in chromolithographs; volume II with 73. A little rubbed, joints skilfully restored, some browning of the text, and offsetting from the plates, small contemporary ink ownership stamps to endpapers and some plates, but overall a very good set. Uncommon, COPAC locates sets at Oxford, Cambridge, the Universities of London and Nottingham, and the V & A; OCLC adds the Getty, the Huntington, Yale and McGill. No complete set at auction in the last 40 years, this run, in common with that V & A, lacks the last issue for 27 March 1869. A short-lived periodical, in an already short run publication was suspended from 22 February to 27 June 1868, from a short-lived publishers. Zorn & Co., for whom we can trace only one other publication, The Floral Decoration of Churches at Christmas &#133; with numerous illustrations in colours and gold, by W.G. and G.A. Audsley - who contribute an article to the present work on the art of illumination - also of 1868 and just two copies recorded, Oxford and BL. Zorn were looking for a niche in the market, aiming to place "within the reach of all classes of people an Art Journal, illustrated in colours, and in all respects of a high order of merit," and that niche was clearly not a sufficient toe-hold to maintain the business. An appealing miscellany of articles on artistic themes; exhibition reviews; artist biographies; techniques; materials, and most interestingly "illustrated lessons," with numerous plates in tinted and coloured lithography.

        Plan of New York City from the Battery to Spuyten Duyvil Creek

      New York: Mathew Dripps, 1867. Set of 19 maps with title page. Engraving with original hand coloring. Conserved and individually framed. This set of 19 maps comes from "Plan of New York City from the Battery to Spuyten Duyvil Creek," an 1867 publication of real estate maps by Mathew Dripps. The 19 maps cover the entirety of Manhattan Island and also include one map of Brooklyn Heights, which extends from the East River east to Jay Street and south to Atlantic Ave. As the full title of the atlas describes, the maps show "every lot and building thereon, old farm lines, street numbers at the corners of blocks, railroads, steamboat landings, bulkhead and pier lines, etc. etc. etc." This massive wealth of detail corresponds to Dripps&#39; attempt to provide information for city businessmen, such as those in the real-estate and insurance industries. In service of this need, Dripps&#39; maps provide block dimensions, building configurations, and street widths, all in remarkable detail. On the sheets depicting more rural, northern sections of the city, the street grid is accompanied by the names of estates and landholders. The title page lists information about the measurements of streets and avenues. The maps and title page have all been conserved and frames.

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

      Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott, 1867.. vii,52pp. including half title, plus thirteen colored lithographic plates by Simonau & Toovey, all after Catlin. Half title. Modern green crushed morocco, spine gilt with raised bands, red morocco label. Very good. Provenance: Dr. William Frederick Holcombe (1827-1904); Usoua Brown (two letters laid in addressed to); Walter Stanley Cambell (1887-1957, bookplate laid in). First American edition of one of the rarest works by the noted painter of American Indians: this is Catlin&#39;s last major publication. Catlin&#39;s account of O-Kee-Pa, or Buffalo Dance, a controversial Mandan religious ceremony, is of particular importance as he witnessed the sexually-charged and barbaric dance first hand shortly before the upper Missouri tribe was decimated by a small pox epidemic in 1837. Catlin here gives a full account of the ceremony, illustrating the rituals and self-tortures of the Buffalo dance in thirteen beautifully executed color lithographs. An unauthorized account of the ceremony was privately circulated by the Philobiblon Society in 1865, prompting several, including Henry Schoolcraft, to question Catlin&#39;s descriptions. Thus, Catlin published the present work, and included within a letter by Prince Maximilian Wied zu Wied, who visited the Mandan with Karl Bodmer, though did not witness the ceremony first hand. The explicit details of the sexual elements of the ceremony were considered too shocking for the general public and were included in a separately issued three- page "Folium Reservatum," purportedly issued in an edition of approximately twenty-five copies. A facsimile of these leaves is laid in. The present copy is from the library of Walter Stanley Campbell. Campbell, the first Rhodes scholar from Oklahoma, taught English and writing at the University of Oklahoma, but was noted for his research on Indians and the west. After spending time with the Sioux, he was adopted by a nephew of Sitting Bull. BENNETT, p.22. FIELD 262. HOWES C244, "b." SABIN 11543. McCRACKEN, CATLIN, pp.101-8. PILLING, PROOF-SHEETS 693.

        Les fleurs animées.: Nouvelle ed. avec planches très-soigneusement retouchées. Texte par Alph Karr, Taxile Delord et le c.te Foelix.

      Garnier, Paris. 1867 - Legatura coeva in mezza pelle rossa con dorso a cinque nervi motivi e titoli oro. Il primo volume presenta antiporta e 28 tavole colorate a mano e rifinite "à la gomme". Il secondo antiporta e 22 tavole rifinite "à la gomme" e 2 tavole in bianco e nero. Jean-Jacques Grandville (Nancy, 1803 - Vanves, 1847) fu uno dei più illustri e romantitici illustratori francesi dell&#146;800. Sono stupefacenti la fantasia e l&#146;originalità dei disegni da lui creati per il testo di Alph Carr e Taxile Delord. La rifinitura "à la gomme", ottenuta spennellando parti delle immagini con un composto a base di gomma arabica o di albume, conferisce una "terza dimensione" alle immagini. L&#146;A. nasce a Nancy, a nord-est della Francia. Figlio d&#146;arte, ricevette la sua prima "educazione artistica" dal padre, che amava dipingere miniature. "Grandville" era il nome d&#146;arte di suo nonno. Nel 1847 pubblica la sua ultima opera, Les Fleurs animées, pubblicata in due volumi, con introduzione di Alphonse Karr e testi dell&#146;artista (Taxile Delord). Muore anche il terzo figlio in giovane età. Il 17 marzo 1847 muore per una depressione nervosa causata da un&#146;angina nella casa dov&#146;era tenuto in cura dal Dottor Voisin, a Vanves, a soli 43 anni. Compose per sé il seguente epitaffio: «Qui giace Grandville, animò tutto e, dopo Dio, fece vivere tutto, parlare e camminare - Ma non seppe percorrere la sua strada».\r Formato: 2 v. (339 p., [29] c. di tav.; 324 p., [24] c. di tav.), 28 cm, m.p., tagli dorati. Buono, ordinari segni d&#146;uso e del tempo, qualche fioriture per lo più al testo, allentato.

        The Seven Weeks&#39; War. Its Antecedents and its Incidents

      Philadelphia, J. B. Lippincott and Co.: London, , 1867. [Based upon Letters reprinted by Permission from "The Times"] 2 volumes, octavo (206 × 131 mm). Highly attractive near-contemporary full vellum, red and havana morocco labels to the spine, double fillet panel to the boards, spine with crossed pistol and military trophy tools and elaborate arabesque corner-pieces, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Folding map, coloured in outline, as frontispiece to vol. I, and 12 other maps and plans in all, 7 of them folding, one with dispositions in colour. Some foxing, as usual, mainly to the prelims, maps a little browned, but overall very good indeed, a handsome set. First edition. Account of the Austro-Prussian War, also known as the Bruderkrieg and in Italy as the Third Independence War. Fought in 1866 between the Austrian empire and its German allies on one side and the kingdom of Prussia with its German allies and Italy on the other, resulting in victory for the Prussian alliance and the establishment of Prussian dominance over the German states under the terms of the Peace of Prague. Hozier served with the Royal Artillery in the Second Opium War, and transferred to the 2nd Life Guards before passing out from Staff College at the head of the list. He was present at both the Prussian-Danish and Austro-Prussian Wars and was subsequently Napier&#39;s military secretary in the Abyssinian expedition. "Aged only thirty-two he was appointed controller at Aldershot with the rank of honorary lieutenant-colonel. After the outbreak of the Franco-Prussian War he served as assistant military attaché at German army headquarters and received the Iron Cross. His reputation as a highly educated modern soldier with an authoritative knowledge of strategy and technology was strengthened by his military writings, including The Seven Weeks&#39; War, The British Expedition to Abyssinia, and The Franco-Prussian War" (ODNB). He is probably best known today as the father of Winston Churchill&#39;s wife, Clementine. This set from the library of William Waldorf, first Viscount Astor, with his armorial Hever Castle bookplates to the front pastedowns and a couple of annotated news-clippings about Hozier mounted on the front free endpapers.

        THE CELEBRATED JUMPING FROG OF CALAVERAS COUNTY, AND OTHER SKETCHES

      New York: C. H. Webb, 1867. First Edition. Hardcover. A bright, spectacular copy of his scarce first book. BAL 3310. The first printing of Mark Twain&#39;s first book, published in an edition of only 1000 copies, with the inserted ad leaf before the title page and undamaged type in folio 21 and in the last lines of pages 66 and 198. In the traditionally preferred blue cloth with the traditionally preferred gilt frog in the center of the front cover. Twain&#39;s presentation copy to his mother was in blue cloth. A very faded signature of a previous owner at the top of the title page and a small blue ink stamp of the same name at the blank top of the dedication page. The text is quite clean with one page with a very short, hardly noticeable marginal repair. The cloth is bright and clean. The hinges have been professionally strengthened with no visible sign of the work ever having been done, and the spine has been neatly and expertly relined to repair a fingernail-sized chip at the head and fraying at the base. The result is quite stunning with the work visible only under close scrutiny.

        LETTER SIGNED (LS)

      Rochester, 4 Nov. 1867. Letter. Normal creases from folding; slight foxing. Near Fine. A letter of @90 words to Frederick W. Gunster on a 5" x 8" sheet of lined paper accomplished in another hand but SIGNED in full by Douglass. In full: "Your favor of the 30th of Oct. has reached me. Absence from home is my apology for delay. You give me the choice of any evening between the 20th and 30th of Nov. inclusive. The best I can do is to give you Monday evening the 25th of Nov. Regarding the limits set for me as final I have placed Scranton on my list for that evening." Throughout 1867 Douglass canvassed New England, the Midwest, and the mid-Atlantic states in a grueling campaign to muster white voter support against the Andrew Johnson administration&#39;s sluggish attempts at black enfranchisement. On the 25th and 26th of November, Douglass was Gunster&#39;s guest, reportedly telling Scrantonites in no uncertain terms that there was little advantage in emancipation under Andrew Johnson. Whether black Americans would continue to bear the inherent burdens of citizenship without impartial suffrage would be decided at the polls the following November when Ulysses S. Grant, carrying 26 states to opponent Horatio Seymour&#39;s 8, privately sighed, "I am afraid I am elected.

Pages clean and in good state except for very marginal dampstaining to the book's top edge, only touching a few lines of the text in the last 150 pages or so. Trimmed when rebound, inner margins a bit tight but readable. Previous owner's bookplate, and autograph note pasted onto one of the new endpapers. Garrison/Morton 1513 notes that the first edition, published in 1867, is "One of the greatest books on physiological optics. It includes Helmholtz's revival of the Young theory of color vision." Heirs of Hippocrates Online notes that Helmholtz was "One of the scientific giants of his age [he] made fundamental advances in both physiology and physics, including the establishment of the first law of thermodynamics [he] became the first to measure the speed of a nerve impulse [his] extensive investigations into physiological optics led to his invention of the ophthalmoscope, now one of the most common and useful tools in clinical medicine." "Because Helmholtz's name is linked so closely with physics and electrophysiology, it is sometimes forgotten that he was a physician who held posts at a number of prominent medical schools. It was during his tenure at Heidelburg that this monumental treatise [referring to Handbuch der physiologischen Optik] on optics was written. Originally issued in parts between 1856 and 1866, the work provided the first real description of optical physiology including the mechanism of accommodation, the phenomenon of color vision, and the measurement of lens curvature." We offer here the first book edition, published in 1867. Garrison & Morton 1513; Grolier-Horblit 49b; Heirs of Hippocrates Online 1887; Norman 1046. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        40 Miles Around New York

      New York,, 1867. Hardcover. Very Good. 22 ¾ x 17 inches. 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. Haskell 1173.

Volume I: [17]pp. of text followed by sixty-six lithographic plans, printed in red and black, and handcolored in blue and pink, each preceded by a single page of letterpress explanation (twenty-one of these pages printed in black and red). Volume II: [8]pp. of text followed by sixty- five lithographic plans, printed in red and black, and handcolored in blue and pink, each preceded by a single page of letterpress explanation (twenty- one of these pages printed in black and red). Oblong quarto. Contemporary green three quarter morocco and cloth, spines and front boards gilt. Expertly rebacked, with original spines laid down. A bit of occasional light offsetting, else internally quite clean and neat. Very good. Both volumes of this comprehensive survey of the waterfront of New York at the end of the Civil War: an important historical document and a spectacular example of American color printing. As is noted in the preface, by 1867 many of New York City&#39;s "Wharves, Piers and Slips...[had] become so much out of repair and dilapidated as to be almost unfit for use, not only preventing any adequate revenue being derived there from, but producing serious injury to the commerce" of the city. The Commissioners of the Sinking Fund of the City of New York (headed by Mayor John T. Hoffman) adopted the proposals put forward by Peter B. Sweeny and commissioned Wesley Smith, John C. Frazier, and Joseph T. Martin to urgently prepare a report on the value and state of the wharves, piers and slips, and to estimate the cost of repairing and even extending them. Their report that deals with the East River and the North (i.e. Hudson) River, with a volume devoted to each waterway. In the introduction they mention how important the piers are to the economic prosperity of the city, how the contract system of rebuilding and repairing the waterfront was not working and was open to abuse (rotten timbers or timbers of the wrong size being used, structures falling down shortly after their construction, etc.). The introduction of the East River volume ends with a summary of the estimated financial benefits of repairing and extending the wharves, piers, and slips: "present value," $15,793,500; "cost of repair," $1,119,185; "value when repaired," $18,707,400; "cost of extending," $791,550; "value when extended," $20,377,100. This is then followed by eleven pages of estimates for individual structures. The second section of each volume contains "Plans and Explanations", consisting of a total of 131 fine plans, drawn to scales that range from sixty feet to the inch, to 200 feet to the inch. Each plan includes an integral title, the names of nearby streets, a plan of the structure with measurements and an indication of any proposed alterations, together with occasional notes about the materials used in the construction, as well as figures printed in red indicating the "depth of water in feet at low tide." Facing each plan is a printed note of the various estimates, as well as occasional relevant notes concerning disputes of ownership, etc. The book is beautifully produced: carefully laid out using attractive and legible typography with fascinating lithographic plans that make highly effective use of color printing allied with hand-coloring. An excellent example of late 19th-century design, which is also an important record of the maritime aspect of New York history. This set belonged to the New York journalist of the post- Civil War era, Francis A. Mallison, with his name stamped in gilt on the front board (though a previous owner has attempted to efface the name). OCLC 12820245.

      London: Smith, Elder, & Co. / J.B. Lippincott Company, 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. &#39;I regard this as the best novel I have written. there is a true savour of English life all through the book&#39;. 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.. First Edition. Half Calf Leather. Very Good. Illus. by George H. Thomas. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hardcover.

      Washington. 1867.. 48pp., printed in double columns, plus large folding colored map. Original printed wrappers. Wrappers a bit worn at extremities. Old tideline in upper outer corner throughout, scattered light foxing. Very good. The map is in fine condition. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A discourse by Sumner on the history and state of Russian America, which had just become the American territory of Alaska. Secretary of State William Seward, the architect of the purchase, praised Sumner&#39;s speech for accurately representing Alaska&#39;s great potential. The map, which is usually lacking, is of the greatest importance, being the first published version of the cession area, a region amounting to one-third of the lower forty-eight states. It is widely believed to be the first map to use the name "Alaska." HOWES S1134. LADA-MOCARSKI 159. TOURVILLE 4391. WICKERSHAM 4128.
