        Ueber die Fläche vom kleinsten Inhalt bei gegebener Begrenzung. Bearbeitet von K. Hattendorff.

      Göttingen: Dieterich, 1867. First edition, the very rare offprint issue, of Riemann's important paper on minimal surfaces (i.e. surfaces of least area for a given boundary). "What his work lacks in quantity is more than compensated for by its superb quality. One of the most profound and imaginative mathematicians of all time ..." (DSB). The research first published in this paper was carried out in 1860-61; this delay in publication cost Riemann the credit for several fundamental discoveries contained in the present work. Most importantly, Riemann was the first to understand the intimate relationship between minimal surfaces and complex analytic functions, later credited to Karl Weierstrass (1815-97). Indeed, the present paper is a natural outgrowth of Riemann's landmark doctoral dissertation on complex function theory (1851). Riemann also anticipated Hermann Amandus Schwarz (1843-1921) in the construction of a new family of minimal surfaces which provided the first solution to a non-trivial case of Plateau's problem, the problem of finding a minimal surface having a given curve as its boundary (this problem was not solved in full generality until 1930). "The problem involves geometry and physics, and its treatment uses real and complex analysis. In other words, problem and treatment involve almost all of Riemann's work areas" (Laugwitz, p. 142). ABPC/RBH list only a single copy. The French mathematician Ossian Bonnet showed in 1860 a close connection between minimal surfaces and conformal mappings (transformations of one surface to another that preserve angles). Such mappings had been a major theme in Riemann's great work of 1851 on complex function theory (Grundlagen für eine allgemeine Theorie der Functionen einer veränderlichen complexen Grösse), "but neither [Bonnet] nor Minding before him took the step of thinking in terms of complex analytic maps, which suggests that even in 1860 such a connection might not have been generally appreciated. Instead, the first to put the picture together were the two leading complex analysts of the day, Riemann and Weierstrass. They worked independently. Riemann's account was entrusted by him to [Karl] Hattendorff for editing in April 1866, but apparently dates from 1860 to 1861. The original manuscript consists entirely of formulae, and Hattendorff supplied a text; the result was published in 1867 as [the present work]. Weierstrass's account was first given in a lecture at the Berlin Academy in 1866" (Bottazzini & Gray, p. 540). Shortly after handing his manuscript to Hattendorff, Riemann fled Göttingen when the armies of Hanover and Prussia clashed there at the start of the Austro-Prussian War. He was in any case probably too ill to work on the manuscript himself, having contracted tuberculosis in 1862. He died in Italy on 20 July, 1866. "The much harder problem is to find a minimal surface that spans a given contour; this problem is called the Plateau problem after the blind Belgian physicist Joseph Plateau who, in the 1840s and 1850s had drawn attention to the fact that a soap film spanning a wire frame will take up the shape of a minimal surface. The contours can have quite arbitrary shapes. The disparity between mathematicians' ability to solve the Plateau problem and the behaviour of soap films was a potent challenge, but even Riemann found the task of finding the right surface for a given boundary curve daunting. He was able to give explicit solutions only for simple boundaries: two skew lines in space (when the surface is a piece of a helicoid); two intersecting lines and a third lying in a plane parallel to the first two, three skew lines (which led to a generalization of the Riemann P-function); the space quadrilateral (later studied by Schwarz), and two circles in two parallel planes" (ibid., p. 542). The most interesting case, that of a space quadrilateral, and with it the first non-trivial solution of Plateau's problem, is usually credited to Schwarz (see, for example, Rassias, p. 153). Schwarz's work was carried out in 1867, and won him a prize of the Berlin Academy, but his work was not published until four years later (Bestimmung einer speziellen Minimalfläche, Berlin: Dümmler, 1871), so in this case Riemann's work was not only carried out earlier, but also published first. In section 12 of the present paper, Riemann also anticipated Schwarz in the discovery of the 'reflection principle' for analytic functions, later also named for Schwarz. This principle allows one to extend a complex analytic function initially defined on one side of a curve, and with real values along the curve, to an analytic function everywhere. "Riemann was interested in calculating a certain expression he denoted du/dt. He commented: 'In order to form the expression for du/dt, we must observe that dt is always real along the boundary, and du is either real or purely imaginary. Hence (du/dt)2 is real when t is real. This function can be continuously extended across the line of real values of t by the condition that, for conjugate values of the variable, the function will have conjugate values. Then (du/dt)2 is determined for the whole t-plane and turns out to be single-valued'" (Bottazzini & Gray, p. 542). The theory of minimal surfaces underwent at least two revivals in the twentieth century. The first major milestone was the complete solution of the Plateau problem by Jesse Douglas and Tibor Radó. The subject revived again in the 1980s when Celso Costa disproved the conjecture that the plane, catenoid and helicoid are the only 'complete embedded minimal surfaces of finite topology'. Costa's work demonstrated the importance of computer graphics to visualize minimal surfaces and to suggest the existence of new ones. In the present century minimal surfaces are studied in higher dimensions, and have become relevant to mathematical physics (e.g. the positive mass conjecture, the Penrose conjecture) and three-manifold geometry (e.g. the Smith conjecture, the Poincare conjecture, and the Thurston geometrization conjecture).

        Four (4) menus with original envelopes for the First through Fourth Annual Dinners of the Veteran Association of the Hartford City Guard plus an announcement and dance card associated with the events 1868-1871

      The Veteran Association of the Hartford City Guard was organized on November 26, 1867. It was composed of those persons who were active or honorary members of the Hartford City Guard prior to July 5, 1865. The AssociationÂ’s main objective was social with the intention “to keep alive old and pleasant memories and perpetuation of recollections of the old Company.” Each year they held a reunion on the second Wednesday of January. The first reunion was held on January 8, 1868. At their 50th reunion held in 1917, it was agreed that it should be the last reunion.. Four (4) different menus for the annual dinner of the association. Each menu with the first being January 8, 1868 includes the Officers, Music, Bill of Fare and Programme of the Evening. Each menu measures 8 3/4" x 6 1/4". Each with it's original envelope. Also includes an anouncement for the meeting to adopt the Constituion and elect Officers for the ensuing year, dated Nov. 21st, 1867. The final item in the grouping is a dance card for Sociables of the Hartford City Guard for 1-12-1870. Some discoloration

        Bishop Percy's Folio Manuscript

      1867. PERCY, Thomas. Bishop PercyÂ’s Folio Manuscript. London: N. Trübner, 1867-68. Four volumes bound as three. Large, thick octavo, early 20th-century full olive morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges marbled and gilt. $3800.First edition of this important publication of the original folio manuscript that “stimulated an extensive rehabilitation of the repute of English balladry,” expertly edited by Hale and Furnivall, splendidly bound in full morocco-gilt.Although Percy was already an accomplished bishop and writer, this work “was to immortalize him. For some time he had possessed an old folio manuscript containing copies, in an early 17th-century handwriting, of many old poemsÂ… He had found it one day ‘lying dirty on the floor in a bureau in the parlourÂ’ of his friend Humphrey Pitt of Shifnall in Shropshire, ‘being used by the maids to light the fire,Â’ and had begged it of its careless owner. Percy assembled enough ballads to make three volumes called Reliques of Ancient English Poetry (1765). As an editor of ballads Percy had had more than one predecessor in the earlier 18th century; butÂ… he had more success and influence than his predecessors. The volumes stimulated an extensive rehabilitation of the repute of English balladry” (Baugh et al., 1017). “The book made an epoch in the history of English literature. It promoted with lasting effect the revival of interest in our older poetry” (DNB). “PercyÂ’s magnum opus [was] of tremendous importance to antiquaries and poets alikeÂ… his rediscovery of older English poetry was destined to inspire the poets of the Romantic revival in Germany as well as England” (Kunitz & Haycraft, 404-405). In 1868, Professor J.W. Hales and Dr. F.J. Furnivall edited the original folio from which Percy took the poetry and published it in three volumes; this is the first edition of that work, together with the extremely scarce fourth volume of songs also taken from the manuscript (here bound as part of the third volume). Also issued in a limited edition of 65 copies on fine paper. Bookplates.Spines uniformly toned to brown, light expert restoration to beautiful morocco binding.

Folio (measures 12 by 15 inches), contemporary full red morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine and covers, raised bands, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. $3500.First edition in English of Chateaubriand's novella set among the Native Americans of Louisiana to appear with all 44 of Doré's illustrations—30 full-page folio plates, 14 in-text vignettes—beautifully bound in full contemporary morocco-gilt by MacArthur of Belfast.Chateaubriand was born into nobility in 1768, but the privileges of being a noble in France evaporated when the French Revolution broke out, and in 1791 he fled to America. ""Atala tells the story of a Euro-American girl who has taken a vow to remain celibate but who falls in love with a Natchez man. Torn between love and religion, she poisons herself to keep from breaking her vow. The lush Louisiana setting and the playing-out of romantic passion in primitive American surroundings are captured in a rich, harmonious prose style that yields many beautiful descriptive passages"" (Encyclopedia Britannica). Doré's illustrations are ""the most beautiful depiction of nature that Doré ever achieved—the lush tropical vegetation of the virgin forestÂ… It contains the best white-on-black effects I have ever seen. These illustrations truly are [black-and-white] paintings. Prior to this no one thought such things could be done with wood engravings"" (Malan, 65). ""Looking at Doré's total accomplishment, one can hardly deny that he is not merely one of the most popular but also one of the greatest of all illustratorsÂ… Every imagination appeared languid in comparison with his"" (Ray, The Art of the French Illustrated Book, 329). First published with Doré's 44 illustrations in French in Paris in 1863. In 1864, Leypoldt of Philadelphia issued an ""Atala Album"" but with 12 illustrations only. This Cassell, Petter, & Galpin edition is the first English language edition to appear with all 44 illustrations. Malan, 261. About-fine condition, beautifully bound.

        O-Kee-Pa: A Religious Ceremony: and other Customs of the Mandans

      1867 - CATLIN, GEORGE. O-Kee-Pa: A Religious Ceremony: and other Customs of the Mandans. London: Trubner and Co., 1867. Small 4to. vi, [2], 52 p. plus iii- p. "Folium Reservatum." 13 chromolithographed plates after Catlin by Simonau & Toovey. Publisher's purple cloth, gilt, all edges gilt. Binding lightly soiled and faded, extremities lightly worn (spine ends more so), occasional minor foxing. A very good copy of a fragile book difficult to find in fine condition. First edition, with the rare "Folium Reservatum" bound in at the rear. A presentation copy inscribed by the publisher, Nicholas Trubner ("N. Trubner"), to Thomas Scott. O-Kee-Pa was a religious ceremony practiced by the Mandan tribe that lived on the upper Missouri. It included frenzied dances and highly charged sexual pantomines, followed by barbaric torture and mortification of the flesh. Pioneer Indian bibliographer Thomas Field described the remarkable color plates as depicting the ceremony in "horrible fidelity." Catlin's text is an important survival, as the Mandans were wiped out by smallpox in 1837, shortly after Catlin's visit. The explicit details of the sexual elements of the ceremony, involving a large artificial plallus, 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 25 copies. It is particularly desirable to have it bound together with the main text in an original publisher's binding. Nicholas Trubner was a distinguished bookseller and scholar with a great interest in publishing scholarly works. His publishing house, established in 1851, still exists. Howes C-244 ("b"); Field 262.

        Das Kapital. Kritik der politischen Oekonomie [.] Erster Band. [Author's presentation copy to Johann Georg Eccarius].

      Hamburg, Otto Meissner, 1867. - 8vo (131 x 219 mm). Inscribed "Seinem Georg Eccarius / Lond. 18 Sept. 1867. Karl Marx" on verso of title, two small pencil corrections and one ink correction to text, presumably in the hand of Eccarius. Contemporary half calf. Stored in custom-made half morocco case. First edition. Inscribed four days after publication to the secretary general of the First International, Johann Georg Eccarius, "one of my oldest friends and adherents": the most important Karl Marx presentation copy ever to have come to the market.

Applied Art: General Principles, Rooms and Furniture, Carpets and Tapestry, Metal Work, Jewelry, Embroidery and Fans.Sir Frank William Brangwyn RA RWS RBA (12 May 1867 11 June 1956) was an Anglo-Welsh artist, painter, water colourist, virtuoso engraver and illustrator, and progressive designer. He was born in Bruges, Belgium, where his father moved after winning a competition organised by the Belgian Guild of St Thomas and St Luke to design a parish church. His forenames were registered as Guillaume François. In 1874 the family moved back to the United Kingdom. In 1896, he married Lucy Ray, who died in 1924. They had no children. He had an affair with Ellen Kate Chesterfield, which produced a son, James Barron Chesterfield-Brangwyn, born 1885 (calculated) in Mevagissey, Cornwall, England. James the son emigrated to Australia in 1909 being sent out to work on a farm in Townsville, Queensland and later moving to Brisbane. He leased Temple Lodge, 51 Queen Caroline Street, Hammersmith from 1900 to 1937/38 and bought The Jointure, Ditchling, Sussex in 1918. He was knighted in 1941. He died on 11 June 1956 at his home in Sussex. In 1936 Brangwyn presented Bruges with over 400 works, now in the Arents House Museum. In return the King of Belgium made Brangwyn Grand Officer of the Order of Leopold II, and Bruges made him Citoyen d'Honneur de Bruges (only the third time the award had been given). Frank Brangwyn received some artistic training, probably from his father, and later from Arthur Heygate Mackmurdo and in the workshops of William Morris, but he was largely an autodidact without a formal artistic education. When, at the age of seventeen, one of his paintings was accepted at the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition, he was strengthened in his conviction to become an artist. Initially he painted traditional subjects about the sea and life on the seas. His canvas, Funeral At Sea (1890) won a medal of the 3rd class at the 1891 Paris Salon. The limited palette in this painting is typical of his Newlyn period (although he was not officially a Newlyn artist). By the late 19th century Orientalism had become a favoured theme for many painters. Soon Brangwyn was attracted by the light and the bright colours of these southern countries. He travelled to Istanbul and the Black Sea, working as a deck hand for his passage. He made many paintings and drawings, particularly of Spain, Morocco, Egypt, Turkey. This lightened his palette, a change that initially did not find critical favor. He continued his travels to different parts of Africa, including South Africa. In 1895, the Parisian art dealer Siegfried Bing commissioned Brangwyn to decorate the exterior of his Galerie L'Art Nouveau, and encouraged Brangwyn into new avenues: murals, tapestry, carpet designs, posters, and designs for stained glass to be produced by Louis Comfort Tiffany. For his austere but decorative designs he was recognized by continental and US critics as a prominent artist, while British critics were puzzled as how to evaluate him. In 1908 Brangwyn was commissioned to paint the apse of St Aidan's Church, Leeds, but after it was realised that the air pollution would damage the paint, it was agreed he should work in glass mosaic. The mosaic (using Rust's vitreous mosaic) was completed in 1916. It covers the whole apse, and shows the life of St Aidan. Other commissions included murals for the Great Hall of the Worshipful Company of Skinners, London (19011909), the Panama-Pacific International Exposition, San Francisco, 1915 (now in the Herbst Theatre, Veteran's Building Auditorium, San Francisco), a Lunette for Cuyahoga County Courthouse, Cleveland, Ohio (19111915), the Manitoba Legislative Building, Winnipeg (19181921), the Chapel, Christ's Hospital School, Horsham (19121923), and the Missouri State Capitol, Jefferson City (19151925). Although Brangwyn produced over 80 poster designs during the First World War, he was not an official war artist. His grim poster of a Tommy bayoneting an enemy soldier (Put Strength in the Final Blow: Buy War Bonds) caused deep offence in both Britain and Germany. The Kaiser himself is said to have put a price on Brangwyns head after seeing the image. Brangwyn is best known for the British Empire Panels (19251932), 16 large works that cover 3,000 sq ft (280 m2). These were originally intended for the Royal Gallery at the House of Lords at Westminster, but the House of Lords refused them because they were "too colourful and lively" for the location. They are now housed in the Brangwyn Hall, Swansea. In 19251926, he served as President of the Royal Birmingham Society of Artists. Along with Diego Rivera and Josep Maria Sert, he was chosen by John D. Rockefeller, Jr. to decorate the concourse of the RCA Building in New York City (193034) with murals. A sequence of large murals on canvas (originally from Horton House, Northamptonshire) is held by the Dunedin Public Art Gallery Dunedin, New Zealand. He was also chosen to decorate the 1st class dining room of the Canadian Pacific liner, RMS Empress of Britain (19301931)]. Brangwyn was an artistic jack-of-all-trades. As well as paintings and drawings, he produced designs for stained glass, furniture, ceramics, table glassware, buildings and interiors, was a lithographer and woodcutter and was an illustrator of books. In 1952 Clifford Musgrave estimated that Brangwyn had produced over 12,000 works. He collaborated with Japanese Urushibara Mokuchu on a series of woodblock prints. Brangwyn's mural commissions would cover over 22,000 sq ft (2,000 m2) of canvas, he painted over 1,000 oils, over 660 mixed media works (watercolours, gouache), over 500 etchings, about 400 wood engravings and woodcuts, 280 lithographs, 40 architectural and interior designs, 230 designs for furniture, and 20 stained glass panels and windows. Towards the end of his life, Brangwyn donated many of his own and other artworks to museums and galleries in Britain and Europe. In 1944, he recovered and secured designs by Frederic Shields for the Chapel of the Ascension built by Herbert Horne, which was destroyed in 1940 during the London Blitz. In 1950, one of his last works provided illustrations for the book Sixty Years of Yachts by Herbert Julyan, a good friend. (Wikipedia)

Don Carlos, to a libretto by Joseph Méry and Camille Du Locle after Friedrich von Schiller's dramatic poem Don Carlos, Infant von Spanien, was first performed in Paris at the Opéra on March 11, 1867 and in a revised version in four acts (French text revised by Du Locle, Italian translation by Achille de Lauzières and Angelo Zanardini) in Milan at the Teatro alla Scala January 10, 1884. "... Don Carlos has of late become one of the best-loved and most respected of Verdi's operas. The simple fact is, of course, that Verdi dedicated to the work some of his greatest dramatic music. One need think only of the magnificent series of confrontational duets that form such a great part of the drama... Several of these break decisively with traditional models, forging for themselves a vital new relationship between musical and dramatic progress. It is for such moments that Don Carlos will be remembered and treasured..." Roger Parker in Grove Music Online.

Original textured purple cloth (vol. iv in brown cloth), printed paper labels to spines. Rear joint of vol. 1 mostly split and board almost loose, otherwise spines somewhat sunned, a little wear to corners and spine ends, labels browned (apart from on vol. 4) and a bit chipped at edges (more so on vol. 6), vol. 6 with a small triangular tear to cloth of lower board. The last and greatest catalogue of the Library of the Faculty of Advocates produced before the creation of the National Library of Scotland (which took over the non-legal material and copyright deposit function) - an ambitious record of a major collection. Begun under Samuel Halkett continued by Thomas Hill Jamieson, and finished by Jón Andréson Hjaltalín, it initially included biographical notices of authors before it became clear that this level of detail could not be sustained without delaying completion indefinitely. The work's long production meant a supplemental volume (not always found with the set) was required to cover acquisitions between 1860 and 1871. For similar reasons the first volume also contains a preface dated 1878, despite the date of 1867 on the title-page. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
