        History of England

      London: Longmans, Green and Co.,, 1867-70. from the fall of Wolsey to the death of Elizabeth. 12 volumes, octavo (215 x 135 mm). Contemporary tan half calf, red and green morocco labels with centre tool to spines gilt in compartments, raised bands, marbled boards, endpapers and edges. Some occasional light foxing, spines and board edges a little rubbed, corners slightly bumped, a very good set. Fourth Edition. An attractively bound set. Published over a period of 14 years, Froude's history was a great success from the publication of the first pair of volumes, it "at once established Froude's claim to rank among the greatest English prose writers of the nineteenth century" (DNB) It was rapidly reprinted, and continued to "command a large sale" well into the twentieth century. Despite Froude's extensive research into the primary sources, many of his interpretations were controversial at the time, and have no doubt contributed to the overshadowing of his reputation by the other monumental historians of the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, Gibbon, Carlyle and Macaulay. However, this would be to misunderstand his sense of the rôle of the historian; "Indeed, Froude himself hardly seems to have regarded truth as attainable in history. He quotes with approval Talleyrand's remark, 'Il n'y a rien qui s'arrange aussi facilement que les faits,' and elsewhere compares the facts of history to the letters of the alphabet, which by selection and arrangement can be made to spell anything… 'The most perfect English history which exists is to be found, in my opinion, in the historical plays of Shakespeare.'

        MAGA STORIES

      New York: G. P. Putnam & Son, 1867.. Octavo, pp. [1-5] 6-325 [326-328: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank] + 4 inserted leaves with publisher's ads printed on pages [2-3] and [6-7], remainder blank, flyleaves at front and rear, original decorated green bevel-edged cloth, front panel stamped in gold and ruled in blind, spine panel stamped in gold, rear panel ruled in blind, fore-edges partially untrimmed, gray coated endpapers. First edition. Issued as part of "Putnam's Railway Classics" series. The stories (with one exception) are reprinted from PUTNAM'S MONTHLY, a critically acclaimed but short-lived magazine (1853-1857) that showcased American rather than British writers (who dominated the industry-leading HARPER'S MONTHLY), though the present volume gives no author attributions, keeping up the old tradition of anonymous authorship in periodicals. A mixed collection that includes fantasy stories: "Found and Lost," a dream story set in 1824 of the discovery of the source of the Nile (faint echoes of Poe, as well as Howard's classic "Three Miles Up"); "My Three Conversations with Miss Chester," an occult romance about magnetism and controlled dreaming; "Tolliwotte's Ghost," a rationalized humorous ghost story; "The Legend of Goodman Poverty," a humble man outsmarts Death; "The Double Veil," a macabre fantasy about cats, rationalized as a nightmare; "The Old Woman Who Dried Up and Blew Away," in which a bitter old woman gives herself to the Devil; "Uncle Bernard's Story," an allegorical "fairy" story; there may be others. Most of these tales are "round the fire" stories and are religious and moral in tone, but imaginative and pleasantly written overall. The collection was reprinted the following year as FOUND AND LOST, AND OTHER MAGA STORIES. This first printing is quite scarce. With such a high proportion of fantastic material, this book should be better known within the genre. Wright (II) 1650. Small paper defect to lower margin of leaf 3, several leaves roughly opened with shallow loss to fore-edge margins, else a nearly fine, bright copy. A pretty copy of an uncommon book. (#149747)

First Print of Carl Binz first publication on Quinine was "Ueber die Wirkung antiseptischer Stoffe auf Infusorien von Pflanzenjauche". This collection contains 7 other reports by Binz and his student Carl Scharrenbroich about quinine. - Carl Binz (1832-1913) was Professor of Pharmacology at Bonn. "His most important work was perhaps the demonstration that quinine in low concentrations kills numerous micro-organisms." Garrison & Morton No. 1880 (Vorlesungen über Pharmakologie (1884-86). - - Enthalten in dieser Sammlung sind folgende Beiträge zumThema: - 1.: Ueber die Wirkung antiseptischer Stoffe auf Infusorien von Planzenjauche (Cbl. med.

He found that conia alone was equally poisonous to the white cells as quinine, but all other substances were inferior to it. ." C.Binz, Quinine and the colourless blood-corpuscles, 1872. - - Chinin vernichtet die Paramaecien - "Die erste und beispielhafte sorgfältige pharmakologische Untersuchung des Chinins vollzog Binz 1867. Er stellte fest, Chinin sei ein allgemeines Protoplasmagift das die Paramaecien und Amöben schon in der Verdünnung von 1 : 20 000 vernichtet. damit versuchte er, die Heilwirkung des Chinins auf die Malaria zu erklären, die er im Gegensatz zu der damaligen Auffassung als eine Krankheit ansah, die von einem protoplasmareichen Parasiten hervorgerufen wird. Diese Hypothese schien LAVERAN, der Entdecker des Plasmodium vivax 13 Jahre später zu bestätigen, als er 1880, beobachtete, daß die Malariaparasiten im Blut in vitro gelähmt und vernichtet werden. Indes benutze er so hohe Chininkonzentrationen, wie sie in vivo gar nicht vorkommen können. Auch seither befaßten sich viele mit dem Nachweis der direkten parasitociden Chininwirkung; ." - "Die Verwendung von Chinin zur Hemmung von Entzündung beruht auf den Versuchen von Binz, der 1869 bei den Cohnheimschen Versuchen am Froschmesenterium beobachtete, das Chinin die Abwanderung der Leukocyten aus den Kapillaren unterbinde." - "Die fiebersenkende Wirkung von Chinin führe Binz und später ISENSCHMID darauf zurück, daß Chinin die Tätigkeit der Fermente hemmt und den Stoffwechsel sowie die Wärmeerzeugung vermindert. Im Jahre 1925 fand jedoch HARDIKAR, Chinin senke nicht den Stoffwechsel, während neuerdings die Versuche von TEN CATE für die Binzsche Auffassung sprechen." Bela Issekutz, Gesch. d. Arzneimittelforschung (1971), pp.47-48 - - "Fast ebenso bemerkenswert ist an der . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Loose photographs, housed in a lidded case with embossed lid, wear and scuffing to case especially to extremities and corners. N.p. (Istanbul) n.d. (circa 1870s-1890s). Félix Bonfils was a French photographer and writer active in the Middle East. He moved his family to Beirut in 1867 and opened a photographic studio called Maison Bonfils later renamed F. Bonfils et Cie. During his lifetime, he produced thousands of photographs of the Middle East, often purchased by tourists travelling abroad as souvenirs. Jean Pascal Sébah was the son of photographer Pascal Sébah, and continued his father's work by joining the family business in 1888 after his father passed away. He partnered with photographer Policarpe Joaillier, and as the partnership of Sébah & Joaillier, operated the most prestigious photography studio in Constantinople for many decades, well into the 20th century. In 1893, Sultan Abdulhamid II sponsored the production of fifty-one photographic albums representing the span of the Ottoman Empire, with two of the volumes being the responsibility of Sébah & Joaillier.

      - Paris, Baillière et fils, 1867. Five volumes in five. Large 8vo (23.7 x 15.2 cm). 2,758 pp.; 180 engraved and lithographed (tinted, or chromolithographed) plates [1-141, 143-169, 41(bis), 57(bis), 89bis, 107(bis), 149bis, 152bis, 163bis, 163ter, 165bis, 165ter, 165quater, 165quinter], on 107 sheets (several double-sized). Uniform burgundy half morocco over marbled boards. Spines with five raised bands, gilt title. Marbled endpapers. Speckled edges.l The most important geological work by the French botanist (mentioned by Charles Darwin in his preface to "On the Origin of Species") and geologist Henri Lecoq (1802-1871). The fine illustrations of geological features and views in the Massif Central of Southern France, with its many volcanoes, are by Lecoq himself. Included are three facsimile letters of the geologists Dolomieu, Haüy, and De Saussure. Because there are several bis-plates, and many "plates" are grouped on single sheets, the true number of different plates is ten more than the 170 mentioned on the title pages, but the actual number of sheets is lower. Plate 142 was not published. Plates 92 and 151 appear in two different states of colour (not counted as extras). Signed dedication by Lecoq to "Monsieur Alluard/professeur à la faculté/hommage de l'auteur" on the half title of volume I. In the mid-19th century a Mr. Alluaud was director of the Puy-de-Dome observatory. A few pages and plates with a circular water-stain (some, apparently, from before binding), a few pages lightly spotted, but in general a very good, clean set with all the published plates. Cat.

Collection complète de ce journal politique et littéraire fondé par Jules Vallès. Principaux collaborateurs: A. Ranc, Duranty, E. Zola, L. Cladel, A. Gill, G. Maroteau, P. Arène, J. Claretie, E. et J. Goncourt. Sur les conseils de Villemessant, Vallès créait son propre journal. « La rue : celle qui mène au boulevard et celle qui aboutit au faubourg . Nous voulons être le journal pittoresque de la vie des rues, la mémoire du peuple ». Une place importante était réservée à la caricature ; tour à tour P. d'Aube, Pépin, Gilbert-Martin, Burino, Montbard, A. Lévy et sutout André Gill illustrèrent cette publication. Le 6 juillet, la vente du journal fut interdite sur la voie publique. Le numéro 27 fut saisi pour un aricle intitulé Cochons vendus. Le dernier numéro (n°33) qui fut saisi, est très rare. Bel exemplaire sans rousseur. Grand-Carteret 599 : « La Rue fut avec le Boulevard de Carjat, le plus typique des journaux illustrés de la fin du Second Empire ». [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        On the osteology of the dodo. [AND] On the dodo (Part II). Notes on the articulated skeleton of the Dodo (Didus ineptus, Linn.) in the British Museum.

      London, Zoological Society of London, 1867-1872. Two papers in two. Large 4to (32.5 x 25.7 cm). [I] (1867): 37 pp. [numbered 49-85], and ten lithographed plates [numbered 15-24], of which one very large, folded, giving a life-size outline of the bird; II (1872): 13 pp. (numbered 213-225), three lithographed plates (30.7 x 24.5 cm). Original printed wrappers for first part only. Together in one modern portfolio.l 'On the osteology of the dodo' is a marvellous, very rare paper on the first bird known to become extinct in modern times. Written and illustrated by the greatest comparative anatomist and osteologist of the 19th century, Richard Owen (1804-1892). This is the complete volume 6(III) of the Transactions of the Zoological Society of London with its wrappers. Plate 15 is a large, folding plate of the entire skeleton and outline of the animal. Initially it was written as a single, complete publication (hence the 1867 paper does not contain the words 'Part I'). Retroactively it became "Part I" with the 1872 publication of a 'Part II' which contains some corrections and additions, based on new material submitted to Owen after the 1867 work was published. "Owen fitted the skeleton into an outline traced around Savery's Dodo image, which he believed ... to have been painted from a living bird. This produced an unnatural, squat and overly obese Dodo, which became the orthodox image of the bird. Owen published again on the Dodo three years later, this time rectifying his mistake by reconstructing the bird in a natural more upright position, but the original image stuck; Owen has been associated with it ever since" (Hume et al.). Uncut. Wrappers a bit spotted and with an expert repair to the spine; contents clean. An excellent copy. The additional Part II without wrappers, edges trimmed. Internally a very good, clean copy. Hume et al., 2009 "How Owen ‘stole' the Dodo", p. 45; Nissen IVB, 703. Not in Zimmer.

        The Pictorial Edition of the Works of Shakspere

      London: Charles Knight and Co.,, 1867. Edited by Charles Knight. 8 volumes, quarto (240 x 162 mm). Contemporary green half morocco, elaborate decoration to spines gilt, raised bands, matching cloth boards, marbled endpapers and edges. With numerous engravings. Some occasional foxing, spines faded and rubbed, a good set. An attractively bound set of Shakespeare's works. The publisher and writer Charles Knight (1791–1873) was already a Shakespeare lover and bibliophile in his teens, when he owned an imperfect First Folio which he made up by printing the missing pages from a facsimile edition. "[H]is first major project as an author took shape in 1837, when he resolved to produce a pictorial edition of Shakespeare's works. He started searching for 'authentic' visual materials and began a critical reading of the texts. His edition was based substantially — indeed, too substantially — on the first folio edition, although he made comparisons with other quartos and, in some cases, with originals in the British Museum. His background reading led to a deep interest in Shakespeare's life and the edition, published between 1838 and 1841 (he published six later editions of the works of Shakespeare), was prefaced with a one-volume biography [actually the biography was issued last, in 1843]. Knight succeeded in contextualizing Shakespeare's life as no biographer except Nathan Drake had done, and in dismissing a couple of the more absurd legends surrounding the playwright's early life" (ODNB).

        Payroll of the New York and Austin Silver Mining Company - No. 21

      1867. (NEVADA MINING). Pay Roll of the New York & Austin Silver Mining Company, Austin, Reese River District, Nevada. No. 21. Austin, Nevada: New York & Austin Silver Mining Company, April 30th, 1868. Folio, single leaf, printed ledger form completed in manuscript, with United States and Nevada revenue stamps affixed; docketed on verso. $2800.Original payroll ledger for the “Florida Mine” of the New York & Austin Silver Mining Company, dated April 30th, 1868, completed in manuscript with the names of the mine's employees along with their daily wages, signed for by each and with original revenue stamps affixed. In excellent condition—Nevada and United States revenue stamps from this period are quite uncommon.Formed in 1866 by a group of New York businessmen, the New York and Austin Silver Mining Company had a successful ten-year run in the Reese River District of Nevada; the owners named Edwin A. Sherman, an experienced public official and newspaper editor, as superintendent of mining activities. This page from the payroll ledger gives ample evidence that the company, while recently formed, was a well-run business with tight controls and accountability brought about by a substantial capital investment and competent management. From the estate of the company's superintendent at the mine in Austin, Nevada, Edwin A. Sherman. Sherman (1829-1914), a native of Brocton, Massachusetts, worked for a series of newspapers before enlisting in the army during the Mexican-American War, where he assisted with the army newspaper American Flag. After the war he traveled to California in the Gold Rush, mining for a while before once again turning to writing and editing. After serving in a variety of local offices in California and Nevada during the 1850s and 60s, Sherman accepted the position of superintendent for the New York & Austin Silver Mining Company in 1866. He resigned in 1869 to take up a series of public offices in Nevada. He returned to San Francisco in 1877, spending his remaining years in the Bay area, contributing to local newspapers and magazines, especially on mining matters.Fold lines. Fine condition.

Souvenir from a railroad excursion from Philadelphia to Fort Harker, Kansas, which set out on May 31st and reached Fort Harker on June 6th and returned to Philadelphia on the 14th.

The piece prints the proceedings of their meeting, held at Fort Harker, in which they extol the virtues and comforts of their travel accommodations and the helpfulness of everyone involved. The final page contains a list of the excursionists, noting which are from the East and which joined the party at St Louis and points West. There are nearly 150 names on the list, with travelers hailing from Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, West Virginia, Indiana, Detroit, New Orleans, and England, among others. The second piece records similar text, being the minutes of a meeting held by the excursionists on June 7th at Fort Harker. The Union Pacific Eastern Division ran from Kansas City, Kansas through to Colorado Territory, where it joined up with the Union Pacific's main line by 1870. The railroad operated as the Kansas Pacific from 1869 to 1880.

The front and rear wrappers are very slightly darkened and with the odd mark as can be seen from the photographs. The wrappers are entirely complete without any chips or loss. There is a small closed tear to the front wrapper which has not resulted in any loss at all. Internally, the book is in fabulous condition for it's age. The pages are clean, original and unmarked. The book has had no restoration whatsoever. It is very rare to find a book of this age in entirely original condition with it's original wrappers. A super copy. We also have fabulous copies for 1864 and 1868 in original wrappers which we hope to list shortly.
