         PORTRAIT PHOTOGRAPHIQUES SUR ÉMAIL VITRIFIÉS ET INALTÈRABLES COMME LES PEINTURES DE SÈVRES PAR LAFON DE CAMARSAC

      Paris: Chez L'auteur, 1868. First edition. 8vo., 28 pp., occasional light foxing and mild creasing. A very good copy in the original printed wrappers. Laid-in is a 4 pp. illustrated brochure by Lafon de Camarsac promoting his ceramic portraits and showing the various sizes with corresponding prices; scattered foxing; else very good. "The first printing of a photographic image on a ceramic surface was undertaken by Lafon de Camarsac in France, 1854, using a gum bichromate system. This relied on the light sensitive chemical potassium bichromate. Mixed with gum arabic, and a sticky substance like honey, it was coated onto a ceramic surface and exposed to light through a positive transparency. Where light hit the surface of the tile, it fixed the gum; where it was darker the substance, remained proportionately sticky to the amount of light falling onto its surface. The result was a latent photograph, revealed when ceramic pigment was dusted onto its surface. Where gum has hardened no pigment adhered, but pigment did adhere to those areas un- or under-exposed. It appears that he also used a system where ceramic pigment was mixed into the light sensitive emulsion. In 1868 Lafon de Camarsac was marketing a system of producing portraits on porcelain, and although a number of companies were said to have taken up the system, it was one requiring a degree of skill to work effectively and consistently; and it wasn't one for mass industrial use." p. 29 Scott, Paul.

         Catalogue de la Bibliothèque de M. G. Gancia. Composée en partie de Livres de la première Bibliothèque du Cardinal Mazarin et d'Ouvrages précieux provenant des Principaux Cabinets dispersés pendant les Vingt dernières Années

      xvi, 189 pp. 8vo, cont. green cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Paris: Bachelin-Deflorenne, 1868. Very little is known about G. Gancia, described by Breslauer as a "somewhat shadowy, obviously Italian, dealer operating in Brighton, England." Nevertheless, he was the greatest dealer in England of the period for French books. He issued a series of catalogues between 1848 and 1858 from 73 King's Road, Brighton and was, along with Tross, the chief supplier of French books to Huth. He was also active as a publisher. Arriving at retirement age, Gancia began to consign his enormous inventory to the leading auction houses of London and Paris for nearly twenty years. The present catalogue is one in the series of Paris sales. It describes 1150 quite extraordinary books, mostly French and Italian. We learn from the auctioneer's introductory comments that Gancia acquired his stock, now partly sold here, at the most important sales in London and Paris since 1847: Libri, Taylor, A. Bertin, Coste, Renouard, etc. and the majority of the books were finely bound by Niedrée, Trautz-Bauzonnet, Duru, Capé, and Lortic. Fine copy from the library of Eric Speeckaert with bookplate. ❧ See Gustave Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, Supp., col. 354.

         The Brigands of the Morea: A Narrative of the Captivity of Mr S Soteropoulos [In Two Volumes]

      London:: Saunders, Otley, and Co.,, 1868.. First edition.. Hardcover. Very Good. xiv, [2], 294, [32]; [iv], 326. Bookseller's 1868 list at back of Vol I. Each volume has a colour frontis (printed by Vincent Brooks Day and Son), showing a Greek Pallekaria in Moreote costume. This is significant, as several authorities, having encountered only copies with a single tinted litho frontis, have taken the view that a rumoured edition with two colour frontispieces is mythical. Well, here it is! Minor soiling to prelims, contents very clean. 1967 ownership name to Vol I free endpaper. In the original bindings of blue pebble cloth, boards decorated in blind, spines titled and decorated in gilt. Firm, spines a little dulled, slight wear to ends. Very scarce thus, and a nice set.

         FUKUJU SOH: THE ADONIS PLANT. [An Erotic Color Illustrated Woodblock Printed Boo

      - [Japan n.d. ca 1868]. Gold brocade green cloth covers, acco- rdion folded, all edge silver gilt, album size 17 x 25 cm., contains 12 double page prints opening to 34 x 25 cm. Oban size, plus an introductory illustrated page. STUNNING ! This is a most famous book executed by one of Japan's most famous painters and woodblock print artist, Hokusai [1760- 1849], who was commonly known as the "Mad Man on Painting." The original was printed in the late 1810's it was unsigned, several variant editions are known, most copies were lost or now unaccounted for. It is part of Hokusai's erotic tri- logy. This posthumous edition has been meticulously carved and printed with the utmost care and registry. The book used some twenty different colors, each color printed by a diffe- rent wood-block. An interesting proof of age, is found on page [six], the rape scene. The girl's red under-Kimono was printed from a color made from finely ground iron. The red has now turned to an iron-red patina with a dark purple hue. This common color was used at the beginning of the Meiji period [1868-1912] for most solid reds. Humidity content determines the amount of time it takes to give this patina, on the average, about 100-135 years for this reaction to change the properties of the iron, forcing it to oxidize and change into and achieve this marvelous color and affect [see #6 scan]. While the book has a proper title slip, it was intentionally left blank. The over all condition of the book is quite good with very minor reservations. A small amount of foxing, more on some, less on other prints, some are even approaching fine. On page #11, the print is about 5 mm. shorter at the bottom, but this does NOT affect the overall value of the image as it is insignificant. A small, faint amount of transfer from the black is evident with close scrutiny. Overall the work is quite lovely, and the viewer is soon distracted to the subject of the images rather than the minor flaws. A truly magnificent and unusual example of early Meiji polychrom printing. Most of the Shun Pon [erotic books] of this period show small images, drawn from a distance, with room decorations, food, bedding, flow- ing robes, furniture and outside scenery. This by stark con- trast has directed the viewer to the real point of Shun Pon [literally Spring Book Pictures.after all, spring in Asia means a new beginning and the opening of a New Year.return of nature from a winter's sleep, what better things to think of and do for a good New Year start if not sex !] is to sti- mulate and enhance the act of making love. The book begins sans title page nor artist's name recognition. Many books of this subject were clearly executed by some of the most famous artists of the period. It was a quick source of cash for starving artists. The work starts out with a double-page showing sliding Fusuma doors, an invitation to voyeurism. The doors are subtly decorated giving no clue to the true nature of the contents, useful for coercing young virgins to have a look.also the reason for no title slip. Each of the subsequent 12 double pages are devoted to the real subj- ect of this book. The joy, art and pleasure of love-making. From the beginning of recorded time the Japanese were not a prudish people. In fact, they held strong beliefs in and worship of inanimate sexual objects such as trees, rocks and other things that showed a natural resemblance to the genitalia. These objects were collected & placed in shrines. Later, some were carved from wood and stone and placed in special "fertility shrines" in Japan. Barren women often visited these shrines offering prayers to the Gods for fert- ility and evoked charms. Stories passed down over the cent- centuries, that some of the keepers of these fertility shri- nes, or their priests were willing "assistants" of these "Gods" & gladly inseminated such vulnerable women. The Jap- anese had an affinity with the natural expression of passion passion and lust. Rape of women alone alon

         Tenders for Survey in Northern Territory

      Adelaide, Government Printer, 1868. Foolscap folio, 8 pages plus copies of two enclosures with the tender forms: a folding plan showing the proposed system of surveying sections (approximately 260 x 315 mm) and a large folding colour map, 'Sketch Map of the North Territory Country in the vicinity of Adam Bay, constructed by J.W.O. Bennett, Draughtsman, from data and instructions furnished by the Hon. B.T. Finniss, L.Col. V.M.F., Govt. Resident Northern Territory. Showing approximately the tracks of the various explorers of the N.T. and the locality of the gold producing district discovered by Mr F.H. Litchfield in September 1865' (515 x 595 mm). Modern cloth with the title in gilt on the front cover; light marginal foxing to the text and folding plan, with light waterstains to the leading edge of the last leaf; the folding map is foxed (confined mainly to the wide unprinted margins and blank areas of the printed surface), and there are light waterstains along portions of the top and leading edges; notwithstanding, a very good copy of a very rare item. South Australian Parliamentary Paper Number 100 of 1868-69. It contains full details of the nine tenders for the survey of 420,000 acres of land in the Northern Territory, together with a report on them by George Goyder, the Surveyor-General. He saw fit to consider seriously only one of the tenders, and his concluding remarks suggest the ultimate course of action: 'it only remains to be considered whether an efficient party, organized and equipped by the Government, and the additional information gained thereby, would not be infinitely preferable to the bare local description of the country actually operated on by the contractors'. The very detailed map may be seen as a monument to Bennett, who returned with Goyder's party, only to meet his death by spearing on 29 May 1869. Offered together with a copy of the Proceedings of the Royal Geographical Society of Australasia, South Australian Branch, Volume 79, 1978, containing a relevant article by Michael Williams: 'George Woodroofe Goyder - a Practical Geographer' (22 pages with 3 maps and 3 plates). Also included is a signed copy of the recent biography of Goyder by Janis Sheldrick: 'Nature's Line. George Goyder. Surveyor, Environmentalist, Visionary' (Wakefield Press, 2013; octavo, xiv, 458 pages plus 28 colour illustrations and endpaper maps; papered boards with the dustwrapper).

         Eigenhändiger Brief an den Komponisten Peter Cornelius in München.

      Wiesbaden, 19. August, 1868. - circa 22 x 13,8 cm. 1 Doppelblatt, eine Seite eng beschrieben gefaltet "Ausführlicher Brief an den Komponisen Peter Cornelius (1824-1874), der 1859 nach Wien ging, wo er Friedrich Hebbel und Richard Wagner kennenlernte. Er blieb bis 1864 und begleitete dann Wagner 1865 nach München. Dort kam er in den Genuss eines Ehrensoldes von König Ludwig II. Am 21. Mai 1865 kam Cornelius' zweite Oper, El Cid, mit Erfolg zur Uraufführung. Zwei Jahre später berief man Cornelius in München an die neu errichtete Musikhochschule als Dozent für Rhetorik und Harmonielehre. - Wir zitieren weite Strecken von Bülows Brief: " Lieber Freund, Schon früher, Du wirst Dich erinnern, proponirte ich Dir, Deine Cid-Partitur beim hiesigen Hoftheater einzureichen. Raff hat gestern das Buch gelesen und sprach mit einer bei ihm seltenen Wärme und Befriedigung davon. Er ist meiner Meinung: schicke Partitur an ihn oder noch besser mit einem nicht zu bescheidenen Briefe an Herrn Hofkapellmeister Wilhelm Jahn, einen der besten derzeitigen deutschen Operndirigenten. Wenn das Werk angenommen sein wird und man an die Vorbereitungen zur Auff. denkt mußt Du natürlich auf einige Wochen selbst herkommen und Dich mit dem Volke in Personalverkehr setzen. Daß der Direktor des Rh(einischen). M(usikfestes) Dir den Urlaub nicht verweigern wird, daran wirst Du nicht zweifeln. Also - oder soll ich lieber an Deine Frau schreiben? Verständiger wär?s aber meine Hand ist vom Schreiben steif. Ist Dir die Bote-Bocksche Preisausschreibung für Libretto zu kom. Oper von 3 Akten, später Composition bekannt? Betheilige Dich doch, möchte gern Pogner bei Dir spielen. Mit besten Wünschen für Dein und der Deinigen Wohlergehen Dein getreuer Hbülow. Wie geht?s den Meinigen? Es wäre eigentlich recht freundlich wenn Du mir ein Telegramm in Briefform darüber sendetest. Ich habe Textbücher vom Cid mitgenommen und werde K(apell) M(eister) Jahn dieser Tage ebenfalls eines einhändigen." - Joachim Raff (1822-1882) suchte 1847 in Stuttgart Fuss zu fassen, wo er auch seinem später wohl treusten Freund und Förderer seiner Werke, Hans von Bülow, zum ersten Mal begegnete. - Wilhelm Jahn (1835-1900) hatte als Kapellmeister die Orchester in den Opernhäusern von Amsterdam, Prag und Wiesbaden geleitet. 1880 ging er auf Betreiben von Eduard Hanslick nach Wien. - Bote und Bock war eine Musikalienhandlung in Berlin. - Pogner ist die Titelfigur in Wagners "Meistersinger von Nürnberg". Im Nürnberg der Reformationszeit hat der reiche Goldschmied Veit Pogner seine einzige Tochter Eva demjenigen zur Ehe versprochen, der bei einem Wettsingen am bevorstehenden Johannistag den Preis gewinnen würde. - Nur wenige kleine Fleckchen, sonst sauber und gut erhalten. - Offenbar ungedruckt (in der Briefausgabe nicht enthalten).

         A invenção dos aerostatos reivindicada. Exame critico das noticias e documentos concernentes as tentativas aeronauticas de Bartholomeu Lourenço de Gusmão.

      Évora, Typ. da Folha do Sul, 1868. - 8°, recent marbled boards, leather label on upper board (original printed wrappers bound in). Clean and crisp. Uncut. In very fine condition. 116 pp., (2 ll. contents and errata), 2 wood-engraved plates. *** FIRST EDITION. An examination of the documents supporting the claim that Gusmão, the famous Voador, was actually the first to build a flying machine; includes an illustration of Gusmão's "Passarola" as it was shown in contemporary engravings (a large bird) and as it was shown in a contemporary manuscript (a gondola with a triangular cover). At the end is "a very good bibliography" (Borba de Moraes) listing some 70 books, journal articles and manuscripts discussing either Gusmão or the early history of ballooning and flying machines.Gusmão (1685-1724), born in Santos, São Paulo, was the brother of P. Alexandre de Gusmão, noted Brazilian writer and educator. Bartholomeu was educated at Santos and at Coimbra, where he took orders. While in Portugal he applied for a royal patent on a flying machine, which he demonstrated on 5 August 1709 before the Court and an amazed multitude. He attracted enthusiastic praise in prose and verse, but also the attention of the Inquisition, which suspected that he was engaged in witchcraft. Gusmão never made another ascension, and some years later, when he had lost the King's favor, was warned that the Inquisition had condemned him to death. That same night he fled Portugal, but died in Toledo soon after of a fever.Simões was a native of Coimbra.*** Borba de Moraes (1983) II, 814-5.

         3 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Ghazir, 1867-1868. - Der italienische Missionar Louis Canuti war u.a. einer der Mitbegründer und später Rektor des von Jesuiten gegründeten Priesterseminars im libanesischen Ghazir, in welchem später u.a. auch der maronitische Erzbischof und Patriarch Elias Peter Hoayek unterrichtet wurde. Später war Canuti auch Superior in Zahlé, wo er 1891 verstarb (vgl. ausführlich: O‘Neill, Charles E. Diccionario histórico de la Compania de Jesus I, 640). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Sprache: Französisch Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

         Recollections of Past Life.

      London, Spottiswode & Co., 1868. 8vo. Original maroon pebble-grained cloth, spine lettered 1868, front cover with H. H. in gilt; pp. [iv], 194; a near fine copy of a great rarity. Privately printed first edition, presentation copy inscribed, signed and dated April 11, 1868 by Holland to his friend Dr. Henry Bence Jones, physician, chemist and promotor of the Royal Society. These are the vividly written recollections of one of the most relentless and keen British travellers of the 19th century. Sir Henry Holland (1788-1873) was a successful society physician, related to Josiah Wedgwood, the patron of the arts, and to the novelist Elizabeth Gaskell. 'Holland very determinedly carved out for himself exactly the life he wanted. Spare of stature but blessed with exceptionally good health, he was able to indulge his abiding love of travel right up to the time of his death' (ODNB). He began travelling abroad with a trip to Iceland in 1810, which provided data for his doctoral thesis De morbis Islandiae. This was followed, after his graduation by visiting Portugal, Gibraltar, Sardinia, Sicily, the Ionian Isles, and Greece, resulting in his book Travels in the Ionian Isles. The success of his medical practice 'gave him the freedom to pursue his great love of travel. In his lifetime he visited every European capital, made two visits to Iceland, and eight to America, covering more than 26,000 miles of that continent' (ibid.). Apart from Holland's few travel books and contributions to periodicals, this book is the best source about his life and passion for travel. Provenance: The dedicatee of this copy, Henry Bence Jones, is mentioned on p. 132 of the book as 'my friend', with whom Holland had tried to establish a research fund for the Royal Society, in order to set up a permanent laboratory. The only copy of this first edition located on the British Isles is at Aberdeen University. Although the book went through at least four editions - all with small print runs - in the early 1870s, it is a very rare title.

         Die Natur der chemischen Elemente als Function ihrer Atomgewichte von Lothar Meyer (Hierzu Tafel III.) (pp.354-363, 1 gefalt. Taf.).

      Ann. Chem. Pharm., Suppl. 6+7. - Leipzig und Heidelberg, C.F. Winter'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1868, 8, (4), 390 pp., 3 Taf. 1870, 8, (4), 380 pp., 3 gefalt. Tafeln, geprägter Leinenband d.Zt Rücken erneuert, feines Exemplar. First appearance in print of this groundbreaking, classic paper in which Lothar Meyer (1830-1890) first fully expressed his ideas of the relationships between the atomic weight of the elements and their properties. - The Periodic Law."This law, which was discovered independently and almost at the same time*, in 1868-9, by the German chemist, Lothar Meyer and by the Russian chemist, Mendeleeff, may be stated in the words: The properties of the elements are a periodic function of (or vary in a periodic manner with) the atomic weight.""On arranging the elements in the order of their atomic weights, as then known, and keeping in view the possibility of undiscovered elements, a remarkable recurrence of properties was observed. This periodicity was rendered very clear by Lothar Meyer in the case of physical properties, by plotting the values of the physical property, e.g., the atomic volume (volume of 1 gram multiplied by the atomic weight), against the atomic weights of the elements. On joining together the different points, the curve shown in Fig. 1 (see the plate) was obtained. The periodic variation of the atomic volume is thus represented very clearly and it will be observed that elements of similar chemical properties, e.g., the alkali metals, occur at corresponding points on the different parts of the curve."Not only was periodicity observed in the case of physical properties but it was equally evident in respect of the general chemical properties and of the valency. Thus, when the elements were arranged in order of ascending atomic weights and in accordance with the valence, Lothar Meyer and Mendeléeff showed that they fell into a number of groups or families of related elements, or elements having analogous properties. In this way a natural classification of the elements, depending on the relation between the chemical properties of the elements and their atomic weights, was obtained. This is the so-called periodic classification of the elements.""If the periodic law had important practical applications, the recognition of its essential validity also greatly stimulated speculation and investigation into the genesis of the elements, for as Lord Salisbury said: "The discovery of co-ordinate families dimly points to some identical origin, without suggesting the method of their genesis or the nature of their common parentage." On these questions much light was thrown by the experimental investigations of the closing decades of the nineteenth century and the opening decades of the twentieth century, and out of these there developed the theory of the electronic constitution of matter by means of which the periodic law receives interpretation." Alexander Findlay, A Hundred Years in Chemistry. 2nd. ed. (1848), pp.49-54*) "The question of priority in the discovery of the periodic law gave rise to some controversy. The first clear statement of the periodic law seems to have been published by Mendeléeff in 1869, but in 1868 a classification of the elements, similar to that published by Mendeléeff in 1872, had been drawn up, although not published, by Lothar Meyer who, even in 1864, had published tables of the elements which may be regarded as forerunners of the periodic classification. Honours may be regarded as even, and were recognized as such by the Royal Society which awarded the Davy Medal to both scientists in 1882. (See G. Rudorf, The Periodic System.)"

First German Edition - This Translation of Boll gained Bizzozero the world wide recognition!Giulio Bizzozero (1846-1901) studied medicine at the University of Pavia, graduating in 1866 at the age of 20. After working in Pavia, he was appointed professor of general pathology in Turin. Like Neumann, he also studied with Virchow in Berlin. At age 22 in 1868, he published two articles confirming that nucleated red blood cells in the marrow evolved into nonnucleated red cells and extended these observations to include the formation of white blood cells (1,2). Bizzozero also concluded that the marrow was the site not only of blood formation but also of blood destruction, based on the erroneous assumption that large cells containing pigment granules were scavenger cells containing red cell debris."
