        The Grammar of Ornament

      Bernard Quaritch, 15 Piccadilly, 1868-01-01. second. Hardcover. Very Good. Fine Moroccan burgundy leather binding. All edges gilt. Beautiful binding, pleasing to the eye and touch. Gilt ruled, with 6 raised bands. Gilt dentelle. Clean, unmarked pages. Chromolithographic plates. 157 pages illustrations, One hundred and twelve plates. 35 cm. A tight copy. Hand sewn. Owen Jones was a London-born architect and designer of Welsh descent. A versatile architect and designer, he was also one of the most influential design theorists of the nineteenth century. He helped pioneer modern color theory, and his theories on flat patterning and ornament still resonate with contemporary designers today. The first 19 chapters presented key examples of ornament from a number of sources which were diverse both historically and geographically - notably examining the Middle East in the chapters on Arabian, Turkish, Moresque (Alhambra) and Persian ornament. The final chapter, titled "Leaves and Flowers from Nature" acknowledged that "in the best periods of art, all ornament was based upon an observation of the principles which regulate the arrangement of form in nature" and that "true art consists of idealising, and not copying, the forms of nature". Christopher Dresser, Owen Jones' most well-known protege, contributed one of the plates in this final chapter, and he was concurrently presenting theories on natural-form ornament in his famous botanical lectures at the Government School of Design in the mid-1850s. In The Grammar of Ornament, Jones gathered together these samples of ornament as the best examples of decoration in an attempt to encourage designers to follow his lead in examining the underlying principles contained within the broad history of ornament and polychromy. The Grammar was hugely influential in design schools in the latter half of the nineteenth century, and is still in print today, maintaining its relevance as a source of inspiration for contemporary designers. Among those who contributed to the volume were J.B.Waring, J.O.Westwood, C.Dresser and M.Digby Wyatt. Included are examples and discussion of the ornament of American Indian tribes, Egyptian ornament, Assyrian and Persian, Greek, Pompeian, Roman, Byzantine, Arabian, Turkish, Persian, Indian, Hindoo, Chinese, Celtic, Mediaeval, Renaissance, Elizabethan, and Italian ornament, Moresque ornament from the Alhambra, and leaves and flowers from nature. "Jones' forte was interior decoration. He insisted strongly on the decorative importance of colour, declaring that "form without colour is like a body without a soul". He had much fertility of invention, and by his example and by the publication of his Grammar of Ornament and other writings exercised a considerable influence on the designs of English wall-paper, carpets, and furniture."

        Three weeks after her husband?s assassination, Ethel Kennedy writes to Nicholas Katzenbach, thanking him, in detail, <i>?for the extraordinary things you did to help with Bobby?s funeral ? I loved knowing you were with Bobby at St. Patrick?s and on the train ?? </i>? with 15 word handwritten postscript

      Black-bordered Typed Letter Signed ?Ethel? with 15 word handwritten postscript, 1 page, 5.75? x 7.75?. [McLean, Virginia], June 28, 1868. To Nicholas deB Katzenbach, Under Secretary of State, Washington, D.C. Fine condition. With original black-bordered envelope torn open at top. ?Dear Nick? in Mrs. Kennedy?s hand. In full, ?All the Kennedys are deeply grateful for the extraordinary things you did to help with Bobby?s funeral. It made such a difference, while we were submerged with details in New York, to know that you were planning the procession in Washington and taking charge of the police, the honor guards and all the arrangements at Arlington. We were so touched by the pause at the Lincoln Memorial, by the choice of music, by the unexpected appearance of candles at Arlington, miraculous if one did not know that you were in charge, which gave the day one of the most moving moments. Dear Nick, yours was truly a labor of love and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.? Mrs. Kennedy added a handwritten postscript: ?I loved knowing you were with Bobby at St. Patrick?s and on the train. Affectionately, Ethel? On the morning of June 8, 1968, after the funeral mass at St. Patrick?s Cathedral, a motorcade left for Penn Station. A black-draped train left New York City for Washington?s Union Station for a procession to Arlington National Cemetery. When Robert F. Kennedy resigned as Attorney General to run for the U.S. Senate in 1964, he was succeeded by the Deputy Attorney General, Nicholas Katzenbach (1922-2012). In 1966, Katzenbach became LBJ?s Undersecretary of State, serving until the end of Johnson?s presidency in 1969. His ?Washington Post? obituary described Katzenbach as ?an unflappable lawyer who served as the Kennedy brothers? emissary to the South during the violent confrontations over racial segregation in the early 1960s and who later was an architect of landmark civil rights laws and Vietnam War policy under President Lyndon Johnson.? Accompanied by Robert F. Kennedy?s 3.5? x 4.75? black-bordered mass card.

        The Petition of the undersigned loyal citizens, from many towns and regions of the British Empire, on behalf of Edward John Eyre.

      no printer, [London] 1868 - Bifolium, four tinted pages folded to docket size, a little rubbed but good overall; manuscript note to last blank reads 'Petition drawn up by Thomas Carlyle February 1868'. Thomas Carlyle defends Eyre's conduct in Jamaica. The controversy surrounding the conduct of former Australian explorer and Governor of Jamaica, John Edward Eyre, in his handling of the Jamaica uprising, divided public opinion.Following Eyre's recall from Jamaica the "Jamaica Committee" was formed with the aim of having Eyre condemned for his excesses in suppressing the insurrection and to prosecute him for the murder of Gordon. Simultaneously, Thomas Carlyle with John Ruskin, Alfred Tennyson and others formed a committee in Eyre's defence, the "Eyre Testimonial and Defence Fund". In the end, Eyre was acquitted, but they failed to get him reinstalled or his pension restored.This petition, addressed to Parliament, condemns the 'tragical injustice' of Eyre's deposition.

      1868. A Novel. With Many Illustrations. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1868. 4 pp preliminary undated ads. Original light brown cloth. First American (and first illustrated) Edition of this classic of detective fiction, issued in the same year as the London three-decker. Commenting on T. S. Eliot's opinion of this book ("the first, the longest, and the best of detective novels"), John Carter wrote~Mr. Eliot is inaccurate in his first adjective, a little rash perhaps in his second, but unlikely to meet with much disagreement over his third. If Poe created the short detective story, Wilkie Collins is the undisputed father of the full-length variety...~The American edition includes 66 wood engravings interspersed throughout the text. THE MOONSTONE marked the end of Collins's peak period as a novelist: it was preceded by THE WOMAN IN WHITE (1860), NO NAME (1862) and ARMADALE (1866), and was followed by a marked decline into largely overwritten propaganda fiction.~This is a handsome copy, fine except for slight fading of the spine; the cloth has virtually no wear at all, the endpapers are not cracked, and there is no foxing on the leaves within. Gasson pp 106-108; Parrish & Miller pp 73-74 ("dull purple cloth" -- we have also seen dark green); Wolff 1368a. Housed in a felt-lined clamshell case with leather label.

        Tabletop Terrestrial Globe

      Schedler, Jersey City 1868 - This tabletop terrestrial globe dates to the mid-19th century and is a prime example of the work of American globe maker Joseph Schedler. In concordance with the growth of international markets and communications, the globe's oceans are crisscrossed with shipping routes and telegraph cables, drawn in black, that both follow and compete with the undulating white lines of ocean currents. The globe also evinces current geographic knowledge, with Central Africa marked red as "unexplored" and the Antarctic rendered with a partial coastline. The equatorial is graduated in degrees and the ecliptic in days, clockwise and counterclockwise. Tabletop globes were highly prized in the 19th century for both their educational and aesthetic value. The globe is in good condition with some spotting and browning to gores, heavier over Asia and the Pacific. Joseph Schedler (fl.1850-80) was a German immigrant who began producing maps and globes in the 1850s. His wide variety of table, floor, and novelty globes were for both school and home use, with some designed more elaborately than others as to fit into the aesthetics of a well-decorated parlor. His innovations in globe design and content earned him prizes at the Paris International Exhibition in 1867, the American Institute Fair in 1869, and the Vienna International Exhibition in 1873. This tabletop globe is a fine example of his work. Tabletop globe. 6 inch diameter. 12.75" tall with full iron meridian circle on cast iron stand, round base with three foliate feet. 12 chromolithographed paper gores. Cartouche set in north Pacific. Spotting and browning to gores, heavier over Asia and the Pacific.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      Heidelberg, 30. VII. 1868.. 2 S., 8°.. An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - "Als Universalgelehrter war er einer der vielseitigsten Naturwissenschaftler seiner Zeit und wurde auch Reichskanzler der Physik genannt" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. -

Dieser schrieb in seinem Memorandum vom April 1866 über die Wichtigkeit des Truppentransports ins Kampfgebiet per Eisenbahn. Da die Preussen den Österreichern u. deren deutschen Verbündeten zahlenmässig unterlegen waren, hoffte er diesen Nachteil durch effiziente Nutzung der Eisenbahn wett zu machen, die schneller mehr Soldaten an die Front brachte. So geschah es zwei Monate später, als der Krieg ausbrach. - Gebräunt, vereinzelt stockfleckig u. wasserrandig ab Seite 170. - Einbandrücken mit Fehlstellen (Wurmfrass).

A very good or better copy in contemporary marbled paper-covered boards, with the front wrap bound in. A presentation copy, inscribed by Haeckel on the titlepage. "Mit der „Natürlichen Schöpfungsgeschichte" (1868) unternahm Haeckel den ersten Versuch, seine in der „Generellen Morphologie" entwickelten Gedanken auch für Laien verständlich zusammenzufassen. Haeckel war ja nicht nur Zoologe, sondern eben auch der Philosoph und Freidenker, der die Arbeiten von Charles Darwin in Deutschland bekannt machte und zu einer speziellen Abstammungslehre ausbaute. Haeckels Ideen sind für die Geschichte der Evolutionstheorie von großer Bedeutung. Er definierte u. a. den Begriff ?-kologie, und erwies seine Kompetenz als Anatom. Haeckel beschrieb hunderte von neuen Arten. Inspiriert durch den Linguisten August Schleicher, mit dem er in Jena eng befreundet war, führte er Stammbäume zur Darstellung des historischen Verlaufes der Evolution in die Biologie ein" (Wikipedia).
