        Catalogue of the Printed Books in the Library of the Faculty of Advocates. [With:] Supplementary Volume.

      William Blackwood and Sons, Edinburgh 1867 - 7 vols., 4to, pp. [vi], 822; [vi], 786; [vi], 833, [1]; [vi], 815, [1]; [iv], 874; vi, 1017, [1]; [iv], 468, [2]. 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]

        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).

        Fathers and Sons...

      New York: Leypoldt and Holt, 1867. FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH of Turgenev's masterpiece, one of the most celebrated and influential Russian novels of the nineteenth century. "Turgenev's greatest novel, Fathers and Sons (1862)... succeeded in illustrating, with remarkable balance and profundity, the issues that divided the generations. The hero, Bazarov, is the most powerful of Turgenev's creations. A nihilist, denying all laws save those of the natural sciences, uncouth and forthright in his opinions, he is nonetheless susceptible to love and by that token doomed to unhappiness. In sociopolitical terms he represents the victory of the nongentry revolutionary intelligentsia over the gentry intelligentsia to which Turgenev belonged. In artistic terms he is a triumphant example of objective portraiture, and in the poignancy of his death he approaches tragic stature. The miracle of the novel as a whole is Turgenev's superb mastery of his theme, despite his personal hostility toward Bazarov's antiaestheticism, and his success in endowing all the characters with a quality of spontaneous life" (Britannica).Translated by Eugene Schuyler.

        Narrative of the Overland Expedition of the Messrs. Jardine, from Rockhampton to Cape York, Northern Queensland. Compiled from the Journals of the Brothers...

      Brisbane: J.W. Buxton, 1867. Octavo, photographic portrait frontispiece, single lithographic plate and a large folding map at the rear; in original cloth inscribed 'presented by the author January 1870'. Rare narrative of an important inland expedition across far north Queensland and Cape York, with an original mounted sepia frontispiece photograph of the brothers Frank and Alexander Jardine.This is the first edition of the 'official' narrative of the expedition, edited by Frederick Byerley from the journals kept by the Jardine brothers. Their 1864-5 expedition is recognized as one of the most adventurous and successful in the history of inland exploration. The two young brothers brought a large herd of cattle and all their men through to the very tip of Cape York, across land that had been traversed with such tragic results by Edmund Kennedy only fifteen years before. In the process, the brothers entered vast areas of unexplored wilderness and revealed promising stretches of good pasture. The party were in regular conflict with Aborigines, and lost most of their horses after they grazed upon poisonous plants. Surprisingly, Of the original herd of 250 cattle, only some 50 perished.In acknowledgement of their hardship and achievement, the Jardine brothers were admitted as members of the Royal Geographical Society and awarded its prestigious Murchison grant. Frank Jardine remained a pastoralist in north Queensland and later became an active figure in emerging pearling industry. He married Sana Sola, niece of the Samoan king Moliatoa, and died of leprosy in 1919.This rare book records one of the most remarkable personal achievements in Australia's history, the success of which was critical to subsequent settlement in the remote north-east of Australia. This copy includes the lithographic plate of Somerset (Cape York), noted by Wantrup as absent in some copies. Map with closed tear (now expertly repaired), cloth rubbed and a bit worn at extremities; some foxing and toning, a good copy.

        [HAWAII IN 1850's] 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]

      St. Petersburg-Moscow: M.O. Wolf, 1867. 2nd corrected ed. [6], 592 pp. 24,5x18 cm. With a lithographed title page and twenty-three tinted lithographed plates (complete). 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 Russian imprint with only seven paper copies found in Worldcat. Early interesting 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 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 Ayres 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, Kotsebue, 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 commercial St. Petersburg 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, bread fruit 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. Both editions are rare» (Forbes 2514). Overall a very interesting early Russian account of South-East Asia and the Pacific Islands including Hawaii.

        [Vues d'Espagne].

      Moscou, Dresde et Berlin, Storch & Kramer, 1867. ____ Album de voyage en Espagne du Prince Alexander Mestchersky d'après le peintre Friedrich Eibner. Il est composé de 35 belles vues pittoresques chromolithographiées et de 3 feuilles de texte annonçant la composition de l'album (l'une en russe, l'autre en français, la dernière en anglais). Dans les années 1860 le peintre allemand Friedrich Eibner accompagna le Prince russe Mestchersky lors d'un voyage en Espagne. De retour en Russie le Tsar, enthousiaste, sélectionna 35 aquarelles parmi les 65 réalisées. Cet album présenté au public révéla le talent du peintre qui connut alors la gloire. Les rois Friedrich Wilhem IV et Louis II de Bavière achetèrent ses oeuvres. Cet ouvrage fut réalisé par l'entreprise Storch & Kramer, l'une des meilleurs dans le domaine de la chromolithographie au milieu du siècle. Elle avait déjà réalisée le superbe album "Pintoresco de la Isla de Cuba". Il s'agit du plus rare livre d'un voyageur russe au 19éme siècle. Vue de Sevilla, Córdoba, Granada, Málaga, Gibraltar, Toledo, Segovia, Burgos, Valladolid, Valencia et Barcelona.

        On the Dynamical Theory of Gases.

      London: Taylor & Francis, 1867. First edition, in original wrappers, of one of Maxwell's seminal papers: the most developed and complete exploration of his theory of gases. "Ever since his brilliant but flawed paper of 1860 on gas theory, James had been mulling over new ideas on the topic. In 1866 he brought them to fruition in a paper, On the Dynamical Theory of Gases. His earlier paper had given the world its first statistical law of physics--the Maxwell distribution of molecular velocities--and had predicted that the viscosity of a gas was independent of its pressure," but significant problems remained. Although Maxwell's earlier theory of gases predicted that the viscosity of a gas varied with the square root of absolute temperature, his own experimental evidence contradicted his theory. "The fault seemed to lie in James' original assumption that when molecules collided they behaved like billiard balls, in other words that they were perfectly elastic spheres. He now tried the alternative assumption that they did not actually come into contact at all but repelled one another with a force that varied inversely with the nth power of the separation distance... Some fiendishly complicated mathematics followed... [but] he found two ways to simplify the calculations. "One was to introduce the notion of relaxation time, the time a system takes to return to a state of equilibrium after being disturbed. This is a concept now routinely used throughout physics and engineering... Like so many of Maxwell's innovations, it has become so familiar that one wonders why nobody had thought of it before." The other simplification concerned varying the value of n until he reached simpler relationships that corresponded to experimental results. "Even with the simplifications, the mathematical obstacles were as formidable as those James had faced when tackling Saturn's rings. He overcame them with such mastery that some scholars consider this the most inspiring of all his works. The young Ludwig Boltzmann, already working on his own first great paper, was entranced." Ultimately, Maxwell "was able to work out formulae not only for viscosity but for diffusion, heat conduction and other properties, which agreed with known experimental results. It was a seminal paper. He had not only corrected and extended his earlier work but had greatly strengthened the theory that gases (and, by extension, all forms of matter) were composed of molecules. Most of all, he had set the theory on a firm base, on which he, Boltzmann and others could build." (Basil Mahon, The Man who Changed Everything: The Life of James Clerk Maxwell). Large 4to (301 x 230 mm), pp. 49-88 in Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Vol. 157, part 1, entire issue offered here: uncut and unopned in original light green printed wrappers, light wear to top of psine, otherwise very fine, custom folding case.

        The Adventures of a Griffin on a Voyage of Discovery. Written by Himself.

      London: Bell and Daldy, 1867. Octavo, wood-engraved illustrations including frontispiece;original dark brown gilt-decorated cloth. Scarce and attractive children's book, based on the experiences of Harden S. Melville on the Fly, with frontispiece and 29 other illustrations by Melville (the "Griffin") from his original sketches.Melville sailed with Francis Blackwood on the Fly in 1841 as artist for a voyage commissioned to make a detailed and scientific survey of northeast Australia, concentrating on the Great Barrier Reef. This book gives a lively account of the voyage of the Fly in Australian and Australasian waters, although the boat is here disguised as the Bluebottle.The thirty illustrations by Melville, range from a self-portrait of the young artist learning to draw (replete with portfolio under one arm, initialled "H.S.M"), through to depictions of life on the Australian coast: dancing a corroboree, throwing a boomerang, turning turtle at Bunkers Islands, or riding over Razorback, southwest of Sydney. The titlepage vignette, reproduced in gilt on the front board, shows Melville patiently sketching while being attacked by swarms of insects.Melville had earlier published the more sombre Sketches in Australia in 1849; both works are now difficult to find. Cloth a little worn, becoming a little shaken in the binding with one gathering sprung.

An eloquent appeal by a Southern champion of Reconstruction, Henry Pattillo Farrow, made on behalf of the poor of all races in George, at a critical moment in the history of Reconstruction and the future of voting rights in the state, while the Reconstruction Constitutional Convention was meeting. Georgia led the way in making the poll tax a bulwark against fundamental change in race relations in the South. Despite the opposition presented in this broadside, the poll tax was retained in the final draft of the Georgia Reconstruction constitution adopted in 1868, and reproduced in the 1877 revision. Farrow was a Georgia state Attorney General and a federal District Attorney who strove to ensure the state's compliance with the Sherman Reconstruction Bill. In part, his statement on the poll tax reads: "There is, in the humble judgment of the writer, no species of taxation ever assessed by any government more violative of the principles of the science of political economy and of common sense than taxation of that kind. A poll, or per capita tax, is not upon property; is not upon a profession, a trade, or a business; but it is a tax on man's inalienable rights - "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness." All who are in the enjoyment of those inestimable and inalienable rights ought aid in supporting the Government which protects those rights. There is no disputing that self-evident, axiomatic proposion [sic]. Yet, can a man be so poor, so destitute, as to live without yielding some return in the way of tax to the Government which protects him? Can you point to a single citizen of Georgia, white or black, who pays no tax? You can not do it." A fine example of early and ultimately unsuccessful resistance to the institution of poll taxes in the South, and extremely scarce, with only six institutional copies recorded in OCLC, at Yale, Duke, Williams, University of West Georgia, University of Michigan, and the American Antiquarian Society.
