        The College, the Market and the Court; or, Woman's Relation to Education, Labor, and Law

      Boston: Lea and Shepard, 1867 First edition. Octavo. Green cloth with covers blocked in blind and spine blocked and lettered in gilt. Hinges neatly repaired. A very good, exceptionally bright copy. Caroline Healey Dall (1822-1912) was follower of the American transcendentalists and Margaret Fuller, journalist, lecturer, and champion of women's rights. The present work, her most important, is dedicated to Lucretia Mott. It is based upon lectures delivered in Boston from 1859 to 1862. Here, she calls for equal educational opportunities, equal employment opportunities, equal pay for equal work, and an equal share for women in making the laws, including the enfranchisement of women. Dall was also active in the causes of temperance, abolition, and peace. She helped to found the American Social Science Association, an organization for helping the poor, unemployed, imprisoned, and mentally ill. In 1877, she was awarded an honorary doctorate by Alfred University. Though in chronic poor health, she was quite active until her death at age ninety from pneumonia.

        "On the Dynamical Theory of Gases." Received May 16, - Read May 31, 1866.

      London, Taylor and Francis, 1867. 4to. No wrappers as extracted from "Philosophical Transactions", Vol. 157 - Part I. Titlepage to volume 155 and pp. 49-88. Titlepage with minor light browning at corners. Internally clean. A small stamp on verso of titlepage.. First appearance of this seminal paper (in its full version from "Transactions"), representing the announcement of Maxwell's final "Theory of Gases" and introduces the "Maxwell Distribution" in its final form, a statistical means of describing aspects of the kinetic theory of gases, a theory, together with his electromagnetic theory, are considered to be SOME OF THE GREATEST ADVANCES IN PHYSICS OF ALL TIMES. Everett considers this paper (1868) to be Maxwell's greatest single paper. Maxwell's discoveries laid the foundations of special relativity and quantum mechanics.One of Maxwell's major investigations was on the kinetic theory of gases. Originating with Daniel Bernoulli, this theory was advanced by the successive labours of John Herapath, John James Waterston, James Joule, and particularly Rudolf Clausius, to such an extent as to put its general accuracy beyond a doubt; but it received enormous development from Maxwell, who in this field appeared as an experimenter (on the laws of gaseous friction) as well as a mathematician.In 1866, he formulated statistically, independently of Ludwig Boltzmann, the Maxwell-Boltzmann kinetic theory of gases. His formula, called the Maxwell distribution, gives the fraction of gas molecules moving at a specified velocity at any given temperature. In the kinetic theory, temperatures and heat involve only molecular movement. This approach generalized the previously established laws of thermodynamics and explained existing observations and experiments in a better way than had been achieved previously. Maxwell's work on thermodynamics led him to devise the Gedankenexperiment (thought experiment) that came to be known as Maxwell's demon

        Sequoia Wellingtonia. Mariposa Grove, South California

      London & Edinburgh: 1867. Hand-coloured lithograph. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling and minor foxing. Sheet size: 22 x 16 1/2 inches. A very fine plate from Ravenscroft's 'The Pinetum Britannicum. A Descriptive Account of Hardy Coniferous Trees' Ravenscroft's work is the third (in order of publication) of the three great coniferous iconographies of the nineteenth century, following Bedford and Lambert. The very fine plates fall into two categories: botanical studies of details of the needles and fruit of the individual trees, and landscape studies of examples of individual trees in their natural habitat. This plate is an outstanding example of the former group, here lithographed by W.H. Schenk. Cf. Nissen, BBI, 1588; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p. 127; cf. Stafleu & Cowan 8685.

        Atlas of New York and Vicinity from actual surveys by and under the direction of F.W. Beers, assisted by Geo. E. Warner & others

      New York: Published by F.W. Beers, A.D. Ellis & C.G. Soule..., 1867. Folio. (17 1/2 x 14 1/2 inches). Lithographed title, list of maps (with Table of Distances on verso), 1 large, folding hand-coloured lithographic map of "New York [City] and Vicinity", 61 hand-coloured lithographic town plans (10 folding and printed on thinner paper, 1 double-page, some with integral letterpress text), 5 leaves at end with 14 images printed using 'Heliographic Engraving', being illustrations of buildings in various towns in NY after drawings by R.K. Sneden (10) or after photographs by Rockwood & Co. (2). (Endpapers creased, scattered minor creases or separations). Publisher's black morocco-backed light brown cloth, covers blocked in blind, the upper cover with title blocked in gilt. Scarce issue of Beer's famous county atlas covering Westchester, Dutchess and Putnam counties: "a documentary record of nineteenth century life and delightful specimens of American folk art" (Ristow). This copy in lovely condition. F. W. Beers, along with other members of his family, were among the leading county atlas publishers in period immediately following the Civil War. Their atlases provide "a detailed cartographical, biographical, and pictorial record of a large segment of rural America in the Victorian age" (Ristow). Beers' county atlases contain maps, town plans, as well as views of principal buildings and residents, along with textual information about the region. Many of the maps provide the names of specific home owners, as well as information about the occupations and physical locations of the various tradesmen in each village. Beers first published his Atlas of New York & Vicinity in 1867. Somewhat a misnomer, the atlas is at its essence a county atlas of Westchester, Dutchess and Putnam counties (although includes a large folding map of the region covering much of New Jersey, the southeastern counties of New York and western Connecticut, and a second map of Manhattan and Brooklyn). It has been observed by McCorkle and others that various issues of the atlas were published in that year and the following with significant differences in the number and selection of maps included by the publisher. This was the result of clever marketing by Beers, intending to sell the atlases to customers in specific regions. "Beers tailored the contents of the atlases carefully. He prepared 137 maps for the area he called 'New York City and Vicinity' but no one atlas had more than 61 [as here], and one had as few as 36" (McCorkle). Some copies of the atlas contain only maps of Westchester and Putnam counties, but without Dutchess County maps; other copies contain all of Dutchess and Putnam counties, but with only a portion of the more populated areas of Westchester; others include only the southern portions of Dutchess County and select maps from Westchester; others include a portion of Westchester County, neither Dutchess nor Putnam counties, but with the addition of Fairfield County, Connecticut maps. See McCorkle for a detailed tabular listing of the maps in 6 different copies examined. The present copy of the atlas includes the largest possible number of maps, with a significant portion of Westchester County and the full complement of Putnam and Dutchess County maps. Cf. Barbara B. McCorkle 'The Strange Case of F.W. Beers and The Atlas of New York and Vicinity' in Meridian 5, pp.39-43; cf. Phillips 2290; cf. Rumsey 4631; cf. Ristow, American Maps and Mapmakers, chapter 25.

      Paris: Michel Lévy, 1867. relié. Grd. in 4 (21x30,5cm). Seconde édition populaire de ces oeuvres illustrées de Balzac après celle publiée chez Maresq en 1851-1852, cette fois chez Michel Lévy qui avait racheté le fond de Maresq. L'exemplaire que nous proposons contient bien les deux tomes des oeuvres de jeunesse qui manquent la plupart du temps ; ces deux tomes forment le tome 1 de notre exemplaire. Impression sur double colonne. Illustration abondante sur bois de Daumier, Johannot, Beaucé, Nanteuil, Andrieux... Demi Veau vert olive. Dos lisse orné de 4 fers romantiques et de filets, et d'une large roulette en queue. Frottements aux mors et coiffes, et coins. 2 coins cassés et manquant sur un cm. 2 pages portent une déchirure. Exemplaire remarquablement frais pour une édition populaire, avec parfois quelques rousseurs sur les premières et dernières pages. Cette édition complète, et la première véritablement illustrée de Balzac a l'avantage de tenir en peu de place, elle contient en outre ses oeuvres de jeunesse qui ne font pas partie de la Comédie humaine et son théâtre ; Les contes drolatiques sont par contre absents. - Michel Lévy, Paris _1867-1868, Grd. in 4 (21x30,5cm), 5 Vol. reliés. - 5 Vol. reliés

        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 attaché au Jardin des Plantes

      Paris; Garnier Freres, [n.d., 1867] New edition. Contemporary red morocco over red cloth boards. Gilt spine, all edges gilt. . Two volumes, large octavo. Two hand-colored wood-engraved titles and fifty hand-colored wood-engraved plates, two uncolored plates. Decorative woodcut initials and tailpieces throughout. Binding extremities lightly rubbed, tear at head of spine of Vo. 2 neatly repaired. Some light foxing at beginning and end of each volume. A very good, clean set. 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 étoiles (pp. viii-ix): 'The Fleurs animées 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.

        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's sluggish attempts at black enfranchisement. On the 25th and 26th of November, Douglass was Gunster'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's 8, privately sighed, "I am afraid I am elected.
