        The Past and Future of Our Planet; or, Lectures on Geology

      Boston: William Denton, Publisher. 1868. First. First edition. Publisher's red cloth gilt. A small patch of cloth lacking at the crown, corners bumped and a modest crease on the rear board, a very good copy. John A. Roebling's copy, with his bold ownership signature on the front fly. Roebling, among many other things, was a pioneer in the design of wire suspension bridges, and notably the designer of the Brooklyn Bridge. He died in 1869, as the result of injuries sustained while surveying the locations of the giant caissons on which the bridge stood, leaving his son, Washington Roebling, to complete the decade-long construction. The building of the caissons, sunk into the river bed, was entirely dependent on the geology of the region, and one can imagine why Roebling would have been interested in this book. Of particular interest is that someone, most logically John A. Roebling, has made small but detailed drawings on the rear endpapers of the types of joints and braces that might have been used in large scale trestle construction. Incongruously, below the drawings are a few notes about what types of grapes make the best wines. .

        ALS Edward John Eyre, Australian explorer.

      1868 - Autograph letter signed by Edward John Eyre, the renowned Australian explorer of southern Australia & New South Wales, and the first European to explore the coastline of the Great Australian Bight. Drawing upon his experiences overlanding sheep in the 1830's, Eyre (1815 - 1901) applied for the job of laying out an overland route to the west. In June 1840 the expedition started out but failed. Sending back all but Baxter & Wylie, Eyre set out from Fowlers Bay to cross the Great Australian Bight. After much hardship & losing Baxter, Eyre & Wylie ran into and were saved by a French whaler which gave them supplies to continue. This letter was written in the period following Eyre's governor ship of the colony of Jamaica, during which time he had brutally suppressed the Morant Bay Rebellion, using government troops to kill innocent men, women & children. Eyre returned to England (August 1866) where those who called him a murderer founded a committee calling for him to be put on trial; he was charged with murder twice, but the cases were never pursued. The letter was written from 15 Charlotte Street, Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, and dated 18th July 1868. Eyre comments on his journey from London to Edinburgh and thanks the recipient for "having my name put down for the Speaker's gallery for Thursday last". It is signed "Yours faithfully, E. Eyre". One can only imagine his journey was considerably easier than the trip from Adelaide to Perth!Folded letter on cream colored note paper with oval embossed stamp at the top, bearing the motto "Si Je Puis". Note measures 3 3/4 x 6 1/8". With one horizontal fold, traces of blue paper adhering to verso, where letter was removed from an album. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        High Water in the Mississippi

      Currier & Ives, New York 1868 - A poignant image, demonstrating the triumph of the human spirit. In the foreground, uprooted trees bob in the current, using a roof as a raft two men pole themselves and nine others to safety, one of their companions holds tight to reins of a mule swimming beside the roof, whilst two others rescue furniture and a barrel. In the mid-ground: a large white-painted house with second-floor balconies front and back, and a smaller cook-house off to the right side. Two men in a row boat approach the back of the house, a lady stands on the balcony speaking to the men; on the widow's walk on the roof a man and a woman stand: the man waves a handkerchief to the twin-stack riverboat. The riverboat, "Stonewall Jackson" is travelling at speed: the near-side paddle creates a substantial wake, the flags fly in the stiff breeze and the smoke from the stacks steams backwards: passengers line the rails attracted by the human drama they are passing. The overall impression is of a crisis that is being survived and dealt with by man's ingenuity, whilst life continues. Conningham 2819; Gale 3057. Hand-coloured lithograph by James Merrit Ives after Fanny Palmer.

        The Moonstone [Signed]

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1868. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first American edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original brown cloth with the spine lettered and decorated in gilt (spine ends worn, board corners and board bottoms rubbed through, some rubbing through to the top edge of each board), SIGNED, PLACED, AND DATED BY WILKIE COLLINS on the front free endpaper as follows "Wilkie Collins / New York / 1873." Wilkie Collins' Masterpiece, his most important novel, and, along with "The Woman in White", his most famous work, the story centers on an English woman, Rachel Verinder, and the diamond that she inherits on her eighteenth birthday. Known as the Tippoo diamond and sacred to the Hindus as the centerpiece in their idol of the god of the Moon, the gem had been stolen by John Herncastle who, while fighting for the British Army in India in 1799, killed the three Brahmins guarding the diamond, stole it, and took it back to his native England. On his death, Herncastle left the diamond to Rachel, stipulating that it be given to her on her eighteenth birthday. Thus, decades after its theft, Rachel receives the diamond and wears it at her birthday celebration. In the morning, the diamond is found to be missing. The man Rachel loves, and who loves Rachel in return, was seen taking the diamond, is accused of having stolen it, and seeks to prove his innocence. The tale was serialized in 32 installments by Charles Dickens in his "All the Year Round" magazine from January 4 to August 8, 1868. Both Tinsley Brothers and Harper published the complete novel in book form in July, 1868, shortly before its serialization was completed. (No priority between the UK first and the US first has been established.) An extraordinarily important work, "The Moonstone" has been declared by many to be the first detective novel ever published. While some argue that the title should go to "The Notting Hill Mystery", published pseudonymously in serial form in 1862 and in book form in 1865, T. S. Eliot declared "The Moonstone" to be "the first, the longest, and the best of modern English detective novels in a genre invented by Collins and not by Poe", and described it as being "brilliant without being infallible". Dorothy Sayers called it "probably the very finest detective story ever written" and, in agreement with both Eliot and Sayers, GK Chesterton called it "probably the best detective tale in the world". The book provided the basis for the 1934 critically-acclaimed movie of the same name starring David Manners, Charles Irwin, and Phyllis Barry. Signed copies of the book are absolute hen's teeth. A Very Good copy of one of the most important novels ever published, SIGNED, PLACED, AND DATED BY WILKIE COLLINS AND RARE THUS.

        Manuscript Notebook kept by Albert Cushing Crehore in 1899 relating to his work with George Owen Squier on Synchronous AC Telegraphic Systems

      - Small quarto, approximately 180 pages, entries in both pencil and ink, plus numerous laid in materials, including diagrams, etc., bound in contemporary oil cloth covered flexible boards, paper label mounted on front cover reads: ¿A.C. Crehore & G. O. Squier Cable E.¿ Some rubbing to covers, in very good, clean condition. Significant scientific notebook kept by Cornell and Dartmouth physicist Albert Cushing Crehore1 (1868-1958) while working on synchronous AC telegraphic systems with George Owen Squier2 (1865-1934). Squier was a soldier and electrical engineer, who while stationed in Fort Monroe, Virginia in 1894 set up an electrical engineering laboratory for the Artillery Corps. In collaboration with Albert Crehore, a Dartmouth physicist he had met in graduate school, Squier invented electrical instruments for range finding and studying high-speed projectiles. Crehore and Squier invented and patented in 1897 the Polarizing Photo-Chronograph to measure short intervals of time. He also experimented with submarine telegraphy. He and Crehore took out several telegraphy patents (Squier eventually held sixty-five patents) and in 1899 cofounded the Crehore-Squier Intelligence Transmission Company to exploit these ideas commercially. The research eventually came to the attention of Chief Signal Officer Adolphus Greely, who assigned Squier to the Signal Corps during the Spanish-American War and later to cable laying duty in the Philippines. Eventually a network of thirty submarine telegraph cables were laid out and put in operation from 1900 to 1903. The research Crehore and Squier enaged in were invaluable to the development of an understanding of the military advantages of electrical communications. The pair¿s research took them to England, which is noted on the first page: ¿Aug 3, 1899¿ bid Squier adieu. Squier took 12m train for Liverpool to catch the Germanic for New York which sailed Wednesday.Mr. Warner came to station to meet us. Mr. Wise was to send man with papers for Squier to sign¿¿ The following pages contain notes and diagrams detailing experiments and proposals in his work which was to contribute greatly to the development of the teletype and related instruments. One of the early diagrams is of ¿Transmitters in series,¿ with notes: ¿Send alphabet and see if the various letters are all right, and whether the signals can be received at all or not with present windings¿¿ A later note reads: ¿Have prepared sine wave machine to send from Waterville. Causo asked to adjust relay, and has done so. Asked to measure voltage from cable to earth, and speed to 160.¿ In an entry dated Waterville, August 20, 1899: ¿Have experimented today. Began by trying to receive through transformer. Joined ¿ line through primary to earth without condenser and using 1000 to 1000 ratio received good signals up to 200 letters per min ¿¿ There are many more passages revealing the scientific process which lead to breakthroughs in communication and transmission. Crehore invented the first Interperometer Barograph to study waves of pressure in atmosphere. He patented in 1900 a duplex-dilex system of telegraphy installed on the Pennsylvania Railroad between Pittsburg and Toledo. He wrote Synchronous and Other Multiple Telegraphs, (McGraw: 1905); was on the staff of the College of Physicians and Surgeons to develop his invention of the Micrograph used to record the action of the heart in 1910. Crehore sold several inventions to General Electric relating to electric railroads. Crehore invented and patented about 1900 a machine he called the Typewriting Telegraph and with his brother and others formed the Typewriting Telegraph Company to promote it. This machine was the forerunner of the teletype machine. It was said that the owners of the teletype patents had to wait until Dr. Crehore¿s patents had run out before launching their apparatus. Crehore was to later establish himself as a [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      N. p., 12. XII. 1868. - 4to. 1½ pp. To Monsieur Prével, presumably the writer Jules Prével (1835-1889), on a benefit for Delacroix, an actor who had gone blind and became impoverished: "Puisque vous aves eu la bonté d'annoncer le concert que je donne au Hâvre en faveur de Delacroix, annoncez-le, je vous prie, de façon à lui être utile. Delacroix est un ancien artiste dramatique, qui a tenu quarante ans, les premiers rôles en province, il est littéralement devenu aveugle sur les planches. Aujourd'hui sans ressources, il s'adresse par ma voix à tout qui tient une plume, et à tout ce qui a un cœur. Malheureusement je crois que vous êtes dans l'erreur à propos des 250 Francs envoyés par la Marquise de Caux. L'admiration que j'ai pour Mlle Patti, artiste, me ferait désirer encore plus pour elle que pour mon pauvre Delacroix, qui en a pourtant bien besoin, que la chose fut vraie [.]". - Scattered toning.

        Photographic album of Gothic architecture and proposed designs for the Royal Courts of Justice, London.

      ca. 1868-70 - 120 albumen photographs (primarily 6 x 8 in. to 15 ½ x 10 ½ in.), mounted, most in excellent condition with strong tones. Contemporary black morocco. Pencil captions. Photographs by Francis Bedford, Francis Frith, Antonio Beato, Frank Mason Good, and other photographers. This splendid album contains 120 fine medium and large format photographs of Gothic and High Victorian Gothic architecture. The images range from the great cathedrals and ruined abbeys of England and Europe to nineteenth-century English parish churches and country houses in the Gothic style. Panoramic views, doorways, facades, windows, columns, architectural details, and interiors are all represented. The album is a valuable resource for the study of Gothic architecture and for the history of the famous and obscure buildings it documents. Given the collection's wide-ranging coverage of Gothic architecture and its inclusion of photographs of eleven of the architect's own drawings, this album may have been a reference collection assembled by George Edmund Street, the leading English architect of his day. Street's career culminated in his design of the Law Courts of London, the nation's greatest public building in the second half of the nineteenth century. In 1868 the eleven architects competing for the commission submitted designs placing of the building on the Thames Embankment. Street won the competition, "the greatest architectural prize in this generation" (Barry). Drawing on his intensive study of Gothic architecture, Street designed the immense, dramatic building from its foundation to its elaborate carvings and spires, dazzling the judges with his finely wrought original drawings. Construction began in 1873 and was completed in late 1882, a year after Street's death due to over-work and exhaustion. This is a magnificent reference collection of medium and large format photographs assembled at the high water mark of Victorian Gothic architecture. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Five Weeks In A Balloon in Every Saturday: A Journal Of Choice Reading, Volume VI, No. 153, December 5, 1868, in bound volume

      Fields, Osgood, & Co., Boston 1868 - Entire volume, marbled front board detached but present, rear board missing, spine missing, binding copy. This is the first appearance in English of parts of the author's first novel, a few pages excerpted from the book of the same title that would be published by D. Appleton, NY, 1869, after having been published multiple times in France beginning in 1863. Verne, who was relatively unknown in the English - speaking literary world, was misidentified by the editors of the present piece as "M. Jules Berne." It is generally believed the editors thought this piece was non-fiction as they noted in the introduction, "It was shameful of our newspapers, which profess to record everything that passes, to treat this important event with such utter silence."
