Tolstoy, L.
Moscow: T. Ris, 1868. Part I: [4], 297, 146. Part II. [4], 186; Part 3 [2], 284; Part IV: [4], 336; Part V: [4], 323; Part VI: [4], 290 pp. Octavo. In 3 volumes. Period bindings with new spines, pre-revoluitionary previous owner's ink stamps on title pages (Iv.P. Barsukov), original wrappers from parts II-VI preserverd in bindings. Occasional foxing, otherwise very good neat copy. The first edition of one of the greatest Russian novels. Unlike Tolstoy's other masterpiece, 'Anna Karenina', and many of Dostoevsky's works, 'War and Peace' first appeared in full in book form, not in periodicals. It happened because some chapters of the novel were published under the title "Tysiacha Vosemsot Piatyi God" [i.e. The Year 1805] in the magazine 'Russkii Vestnik' (1865). According to Tolstoy's letters to wife (1867), he planned to handle it for some months but it took at least a year to correct, edit and print parts 1-4. Despite a very high price, the work was sold well and the parts were reprinted the same year. The volumes 5-6 followed them in 1869. Only copy located in University of North Carolina, according to Worldcat, incomplete set is in Library of Congress. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Pollen, F. P. L.
Leyde [Leiden], J. K. Steenhoff, 1868-1877. 4to (30.5 x 23.0 cm). 240, [2] pp., 48 mostly coloured and tinted lithographed plates and two tinted lithographed maps (one folded) one hand-written letter in facsimile (unpaginated, as part of the text). Original printed wrappers. Rare complete set, in five original folding wrappers, of the general part of this voyage with two maps (one, folded, of the northern part of Madagascar and adjacent waters and islands; the other of the island of Mayotte and the Comores). It also includes all the fine lithographs, among which there are several peculiar ones, such as: "Mons. Pollen se rend a la maison du Gouverneur de Mourounsang en societe du Prince Salama, des Dignitaires et de la Garnison Hova" and "Un banquet donné par le Cherif Calyfan en honneur de Prince Salama et du Docteur Pollen". The others are nice, accurate views of the island and coast and include fishing of turtles and the animal- and plant-life of this beautiful island, known for its diverse and largely endemic flora and fauna. A few plates are ethnographical; one is a portrait. The text was never completed. Some foxing (as usual) ranging from light to medium to only a few plates and mostly in the margins, other plates quite clean. A few with a small stain to one margin. Three spines of wrappers split at folds, two others with small defects only. Overall, still a very good copy, especially since these are always foxed to some degree. The complete expedition by Pollen is comprised of four volumes; the other parts on the geology and zoology are very rare and expensive too. L … [Click Below for Full Description]

Paris: 1868. Anniroc Rare Books ________ First experimental study on cocaine...Chi Chi, get the yayo... Recherches Chimiques et Physiologiques sur l'Erythroxylum Coca du Pérou et la Cocaïne. Thomas Moreno y Maiz Paris, 1868 Bound in contemporary quarter leather and paper boards with 8 other rare medical works mainly related to anesthesia. A well-executed rebacking with original spine laid down, rear board with some water damage, some water stains on the last few leaves and pastedowns - heavier on the endleaves, last leaf with a small center hole affecting a few letters, textblock slightly trimmed. However, most of the textblock is rather clean and overall it's a Very Good book. First edition of the first experimental study on cocaine - the earliest suggested use of cocaine as a local anesthetic. One lithographic plate showing the leaves of the Erythroxylum coca Huanuco along with several tables and graphs in the text. Moreno y Maiz was a Peruvian army surgeon who went to Paris for post-graduate training. He was a believer in rigorous scientific experimentation and his work with cocaine produced "some of the most blessed moments of my life." Limited supplies of coca leaves, poor quality refined cocaine, and high prices were sources of frustration(some things never change!) during his studies. The body of the book contains examinations of cocaine-injected frogs - he later surmises on the potential use of cocaine as an anesthetic. His work influenced future students of the drug, including Freud.(Refs: A Brief History of Cocaine, Karch; Moreno and the First Study on Cocaine, Se … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dieses Buch wurde bald so populär, dass innerhalb von 12 Jahren mehrere Auflagen in deutscher und in französischer Übersetzung erschienen. 'Geschlachtet' wurde dieses Buch zu Hunderten, vor allem wegen seinen schönen Stahlstichen. Diese Erstausgabe ist darum so selten, weil nur diese Ausgabe die Abbildung von der später abgeänderten Ansicht von Zermatt 'Zermat (sic) et le mont Cervin (Valais)', als sogenannte 'gute Ansicht' beinhaltet. In späteren Ausgaben heisst die Abb. 'Zermatt Ct. Wallis' und wurde aus einem anderem Blickwinkel abgebildet. Die Abb. Grindelwald-Gletscher und Aernen fehlen in unserem Exemplar, dafür ist die Abb. Varen (Valais) eingebunden worden. Sonst komplettes Exemplar dieses Klassikers des alpinen Ansichtenwerkes aus u.a. Graubünden, Berner-Oberland, Glarus und Wallis.

Aside from occasional faint foxing, a fine and complete work, including half-title pages. Newly bound in cloth-backed marbled paper over boards, with a gilt titled morocco spine label. Fine. Alexandre Edmond Becquerel (1820 - 1891) like his father, Prof. Antoine César Becquerel, pursued a career in scientific research. His work in electricity, magnetism, optics, meteorology and photography led him to experiments in the photogalvanic effect of the solar spectrum, beginning in 1839. "In a published report concerning color photography, Becquerel expressed the opinion that the substance which conserves colored impressions when acted upon by light is sub-chloride of silver. The colors which he obtained faded slowly under light but his work, described in a paper read Dec. 18, 1857 under the title 'La Production des Couleurs sons l'action de la Lumière,' marks the beginning of color photography." Sipley, Louis Walton. PHOTOGRAPHY'S GREAT INVENTORS. p. 16.LA LUMIÈRE SES : CAUSES ET SES EFFECTS, is in two parts, Sources de Lumière, and Effets de la Lumière.

ROBERT-HOUDIN, Jean-Eugène
Lecesne, Blois, 1868. Demi basane brune de l'époque, plats en papier marbré, dos lisse portant le titre doré. Un volume in-8 (233x152 mm), photo de Robert-Houdin en frontispice, (4)-xvi-440 pages Plats frottés. Quelques rousseurs claires. Édition originale parue à Blois, la ville natale de Robert-Houdin, éditée par Lecesne ami de Robert-Houdin. Seule cette édition possède un chapitre supplémentaire de 16 pages, paginées en chiffres romains que les autres éditions ne possèdent pas. Delahays donna à Paris, à la même date une édition que l'on trouve couramment. Photographie originale de l'auteur par Mieusement, photographe à Blois placée comme il se doit en frontispice. Jean-Eugène Robert-Houdin (1805-1871), né à Blois, fils d'Horloger et horloger lui-même, se passionna pour la prestidigitation à un tel point qu'elle sera classée grâce à lui au rang des arts. C'est en 1827 que tout commença et que l'erreur d'un libraire allait faire naître se vocation. En voulant se procurer le "Traité d'Horlogerie" de Berthoud, Robert-Houdin se retrouve chez lui avec le "Dictionnaire encyclopédique des amusements des sciences mathématiques et physiques". Il écrira plus tard : "La ressemblance de deux in-quarto et la préoccupation du bouquiniste, telles furent les causes vulgaires de l'événement le plus important de ma vie". Il y découvre "l'escamotage", que l'oin nommera la "prestidigitation". Sur la page de titre de son exemplaire personnel, on trouve écrit : "Volume dans lequel j'ai puisé mes premières inspirations dans l'art de l'escamotage. Robert-Houdin". (Hjalmar).

D. Van Nostrand & James Miller, 1868. Hardcover. Volumes I, II, and III, dated 1868 and 1876. The main photo is of our set. All three volumes are in exceptionally solid condition considering their age. An apparent water stain is visible at the top and bottom edges of all three volumes, but the pages are not damaged nor does the stain extend past a 1/32 inch into the pages. Cloth portion of spine is faded on all three volumes, beginning to tear on volume 1, has been torn and chipped and since repaired on volume 2. All three volumes have been stamped on front endpage by previous owner. Rear cover of volume 1 has been cracked. Boards are showing in one small tear on volume 2's spine. Top end of front cover of volume 2 is beginning to crack. One half of the pages in volume 2 have separated but have only just begun to separate from their binding. Volume 3 has a red marking upper front cover. Pages 110 and 111 are uncut! First page is torn at the very top. Water staining extends 1/2 inch into books, much more severe than the other two volumes though is only a stain, not actual water damage. Two pages have a marking from where a newspaper clipping was between the pages for decades. Pages in all 3 volumes appear to be clean and unmarked, without underlining, pencil marks, or any other marks of any other kind. Very Good. Item #2012-B708.

New York: Metropolitan Job Printing and Engraving Establishment, 1868. Letterpress broadside, approximately 16 3/4 x 6 inches. A few small marginal mounting holes, short closed marginal tear, minor chipping. Still, a handsome display piece in very good condition. A fascinating and highly informative broadside heralding the latest oddities acquired by the New York Museum of Anatomy, a scientific storehouse for strange and unusual anatomical wonders. Notable among the recently-acquired "extensive curiosities" touted by the museum are George Washington's "Death bed," a mechanical figure that breathed realistically and gasped for air called the "Dying Zouave," "Negro children with two heads," "The Head and right Arm of Anton Probst, the Murderer of the Deering Family, showing the Phrenological Developments," "The Hermaphrodites!," a pair of Siamese twins with "One Body, Two Legs and Four Arms" called "The Washington Twins!" and "The Heads of all the Notorious English Murderers and Murderesses." Other fascinating additions include "man with a horn in his forehead," "embalmed bodies," "Aztec children," "children with the heads of monkeys," "pigs with the heads and trunks of elephants," "the hand of Goliah, the celebrated Irish giant," plus specimens of the Animal Kingdom including shark bones, wild boar skulls, a rattlesnake, coral snake, owl fish, devil-fish, and many more. The brief swatch of text near the bottom of the broadside further enumerates the holdings of the museum in the areas of osteology, neurology, the "Pathological Department," and anatomy, and reminds the publ … [Click Below for Full Description]

London: John Murray, 1868. London: John Murray,, 1868. Pavlov's copy 2 volumes, demy octavo. Original green cloth, blind-panelled covers, spines gilt with imprint at foot in one line, dark green coated endpapers, Edmonds & Remnants label at end of vol. I. 43 woodcuts in the text. Vol. II with 2 pp. adverts dated February 1868; vol. I without the 32 pages of adverts dated April 1867 to rear, which are "usually, but by no means always present" (Freeman). Extremities a little rubbed, chip at foot of vol. 2 spine, some minor marks but still generally fresh and bright, firm and square; vol. I with a small hole piercing the last 2 leaves, occasional scattered light spotting or staining internally, overall very good. First edition, first issue, from the library of Ivan Petrovich Pavlov (1809-1882), the celebrated Russian physiologist, known mainly for his classic work on conditioning, with his library shelfmark stamps to titles and c1 recto. Pavlov's life course was determined by his encounter with Darwin's work. As a young student, his family sent him to a theological seminary to second an apparent religious vocation. It was after reading Darwin, however, that Pavlov discovered a passion for the sciences, and instead joined the University of St Petersburg. There he studied chemistry and physiology, receiving his doctorate in 1879 and eventually being appointed professor of physiology at the Imperial Medical Academy. Pavlov's views on the inheritance of acquired characteristics held strong for many years, notwithstanding contrary evidence, most likely in the light of the impressi … [Click Below for Full Description]

[New York Museum of Anatomy]
New York: Metropolitan Job Printing and Engraving Establishment, 1868. Letterpress broadside, approximately 16 3/4 x 6 inches. A few small marginal mounting holes, short closed marginal tear, minor chipping. Still, a handsome display piece in very good condition. A fascinating and highly informative broadside heralding the latest oddities acquired by the New York Museum of Anatomy, a scientific storehouse for strange and unusual anatomical wonders. Notable among the recently-acquired "extensive curiosities" touted by the museum are George Washington's "Death bed," a mechanical figure that breathed realistically and gasped for air called the "Dying Zouave," "Negro children with two heads," "The Head and right Arm of Anton Probst, the Murderer of the Deering Family, showing the Phrenological Developments," "The Hermaphrodites!," a pair of Siamese twins with "One Body, Two Legs and Four Arms" called "The Washington Twins!" and "The Heads of all the Notorious English Murderers and Murderesses." Other fascinating additions include "man with a horn in his forehead," "embalmed bodies," "Aztec children," "children with the heads of monkeys," "pigs with the heads and trunks of elephants," "the hand of Goliah, the celebrated Irish giant," plus specimens of the Animal Kingdom including shark bones, wild boar skulls, a rattlesnake, coral snake, owl fish, devil-fish, and many more. The brief swatch of text near the bottom of the broadside further enumerates the holdings of the museum in the areas of osteology, neurology, the "Pathological Department," and anatomy, and reminds the publ … [Click Below for Full Description]

GALKIN-VRASKOY, Mikhail Nikolayevich.
St Petersburg: A.Y. Isakov, 1868. St Petersburg: A.Y. Isakov,, 1868. Octavo (210 x 142 mm). Contemporary Russian brown half sheep, black pebble-grained paper boards; spine with blind stamped title. Woodcut-engraved title page vignette, 12 single-tint lithographed plates and 2 folding plans, together with a large folding lithographed map at rear, outlined in colour. Overall a little rubbed, some judicious restoration to the spine and corners, bottom orner of the title page torn, no loss of text, and skilfully restored, light browning throughout, remains a very good copy. Second enlarged and illustrated edition, published just a year after the first which was an unillustrated offprint from the Proceedings of the Russian Geographical Society on the Department of Ethnography, issued in a run of just 250 copies. Uncommon, just 5 copies located on OCLC. The book is based on Galkin-Vraskoy's (1832-1916) travels across Central Asia in the service of the Orenburg and Samara General-Governorship during 1858-9. In the summer and autumn of 1858 he was a part of Nikolay Pavlovich Ignatyev's (1832-1908) diplomatic mission to the Khanate of Khiva and the Emirate of Bukhara; the following summer he accompanied Col. Viktor Dandeville's (1826-1907) expedition to the eastern shore of the Caspian Sea. Ignatyev's mission aimed to map the Amu Darya River, obtain free navigation for Russian ships, and to sign treaties of amity with Khiva and Bukhara - in the event only that with Bukhara was ratified. This diplomatic mission's mixed fortunes focussed the Russian government on the use of force … [Click Below for Full Description]
