        EARLY PHOTOGRAPHS OF KENSINGTON

      circa -1875 1868 - A small folio nineteenth century photograph album with a total of 87 tipped in photographs. The album has the book plate signed "Arthur and Fanny Roberts 1874" and contains some fascinating and rare early photographs of Kensington, some with interesting inscriptions:- 1). "the manor house of Earls Court 1874 on this site now stands the Earls Court Railway Station Earls Court Road". 2). "Kensington Church 1862" being a view of the old church showing the still standing arch to the left and Ken Church Street to the right. 3). "High Street Kensington 1868 the site now occupied by John Barker whose shop in the distance is the small public house that stood on the corner of King Street" being a splendid early view of the high street with horses, carts, road sweepers etc. 4). "Kensington Palace 1870 the man in the white hat is Mr Wickham who kept a drapers shop where Barkers now stands" a view of the palace with the said Mr Wickham and child. 5)."old public house 1869 stood in King Street Kensington Square said to be 200 years old." a view of a delapidated building with a group of poor looking men, women and children. 6). "Kensington Square photographed my me Roberts 1872" looking east. 7). "Kings Street Kensington Square 1867. the houses on the right of the view are where the opening to Ball Street was made when the better street was built". 8). "Kensington Church photographed by me A. Roberts" a view of the church taken from the North side of Kensington Square clearing showing the empty plot that was to become Barkers. 9). "the pulling down of Kensington church" a series of 4 photographs showing the dismantling of the church taken from the same spot as the previous photograph. 10). 2 photographs of Little Holland House 1874 The other photographs in the album, although interesting are not of London interest (except possibly 2 which are untitled). Research in the K and C library reveals one copy of these photographs which were previously believed to have been by a Dr Merriman and whose extra illustrated Faulkner History of Kensington was donated to the library. It seems that Dr Merriman and Dr Roberts both (1881 census) lived in Kensington Square and were likely to have been friends. I therefore assume the photos could have been by either man. A RARE PHOTOGRAPHIC KENSINGTON ITEM. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        The Captive Missionary:

      London: Cassell, Petter, and Galpin,, [1868]. being an Account of the Country and People of Abyssinia. Embracing a Narrative of King Theodore's Life and his Treatment of Political and Religious Missions. Octavo. Original blue cloth, title gilt to spine, entwined in shackles, blind panels to the boards, large gilt device of an Abyssinian warrior to the upper board. Steel engraved group portrait frontispiece and 7 other steel-engraved plates. A little rubbed, hinges repaired and spine lined, light toning, but a very good copy. First edition. One of the key accounts of the events which led to the Abyssinian Expedition. Stern - "an arrogant bigot" (ODNB) - was treated particularly harshly. "The detention of Stern and his companions was widely publicized by Mrs Stern. The imprisonment of Cameron [British Consul] and Rassam [British Resident at Aden] was, however, politically more important, for it caused the British government to decide on military intervention. An expedition commanded by Sir Robert Cornelis Napier was dispatched from Bombay in the summer of 1867… The British crossed northern Ethiopia without opposition. The first engagement took place below Maqdala, on 10 April 1868, when Téwodros's army was overwhelmed by British superiority in weapons. The emperor, wishing to make peace, released Stern and the other Europeans, but Napier decided to storm Maqdala, on 13 April. Téwodros, to escape capture, committed suicide. Maqdala, to Stern's satisfaction, was burnt to the ground on 17 April, after which the British expedition withdrew from Ethiopia." His health damaged by his experiences, Stern, who had originally gone to Ethiopia to convert the Falashas, remained in London thereafter and continued his work for the London Society for Promoting Christianity amongst the Jews, dying in 1885.

      St Petersburg: E. E. Glazunova,, 1868. Translated by P. A. Bibikov. 2 volumes, octavo (220 × 144 mm). Original pale green printed wrappers to volume one, volume two in a facsimile stiff paper wrapper, the original rear printed paper wrapper preserved, spine and covers printed in black, preserved in a custom-made clam shell cloth box. Ownership inscription to title-pages and ownership stamp of Professor Katsenelenbaum of Moscow to first leaf of text in each volume. Wrappers a little soiled, some wear to the spine ends, front wrapper of volume 1 separating from spine at the foot, some pencil marking to the head of the rear cover. Overall an excellent set, uncut and largely unopened. First Russian language edition of Malthus's Essay on the Principle of Population, first published in English in 1798, one of the most important and influential works in the history of economic thought. The translation was made by P. A. Bibikov, a historian, philosopher, and literary critic, who had already translated Smith's Wealth of Nations in 1866. "Malthus was not the first writer to make the obvious point that the growth of population is ultimately limited by the food supply. He was, however, the first to bring it home to readers with the aid of a simple, powerful metaphor: population when allowed to increase without limit, increases in a geometrical ratio, while the food supply can at best increase at an arithmetical ratio; so, whatever the plausible rate of increase of the food supply, an unchecked multiplication of human beings must quickly lead to standing-room only" (Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, p. 141). "The central idea of the essay – and hub of the Malthusian theory – was a simple one ... If the natural increase in population occurs the food supply becomes insufficient and the size of the population is checked by 'misery' – that is the poorest sections of the community suffer disease and famine. Malthus recognises two other possible checks to population expansion: first 'vice' – that is, homosexuality, prostitution, and abortion (all totally unacceptable to Malthus); and second 'moral restraint' – the voluntary limitation of the product of children by the postponement of marriage." (PMM). "For today's readers, living in a post-Malthus era, the world's population problems are well known and serious, but no longer sensational. It is difficult therefore to appreciate the radical and controversial impact made by the Essay at the time of publication. It challenged the conventional notion that population growth is an unmixed blessing. It discussed prostitution, contraception, and other sexual matters. And it gave vivid descriptions of the horrendous consequences of overpopulation and of the brutal means by which populations are checked" (ODNB). Despite its unpopularity with liberal critics, Malthus's principle of population became accepted as a central tenet of classical political economy and Charles Darwin acknowledged Malthus's influence in the development of his theory of natural selection. Malthus was subsequently appointed Professor of History and Political Economy at the East India Company's Haileybury College.

Clark, D.D. at Albany, N.Y. - January first - 1868 by General Stephen Van Rensselaer." Tipped in at inner edge of one leaf (the other is loose) is a two page letter signed from Stephen Van Rensselaer to Clarke dated 1 Jan., 1868, headed "Manor House", with his printed monogram, 8 x 5 inches, folded twice, short tears to two folds, else fine. The text is in a secretarial hand, which perhaps isn't such a pity. as Ms Clark was confused about which Van Rensselaer gave the book to her father. It has to have been Stephen Van Rensselar IV (1789-1868), one of the largest land-holders in New York, the son of the distinguished War of 1812 general and politician Stephen Van Rensselaer III (1764-1839). IV found himself involved a the 30 year Anti-Rent Wars when the estate was divided. Van Rensselaer IV writes "Dear Doctor, Among the many books I have overlooked, this one I send is the most artistic & beautiful in design & in execution. The title alone renders it somewhat inappropriate, as never has God's enchanted sun shine beamed more fully upon a family, than upon yours.....Your, aged friend, S.V Rensselaer" ( the text body, in a secretarial hand, is in sepia ink, the signature in black ink). In pencil lightly on the back of the tipped in leaf is "This book belongs to Eliza W. Clark" >>> Biblical calligraphed texts with fancy illustrated borders, illustrated and decorated initials (some in gilt). Inspired by the medieval illuminated manuscript, but thoroughly High Victorian, a striking example. COPAC locates only one copy, at the Nat. Lib. of Scotland. WorldCat finds three - at Cal. State, Stanford, and Delaware. Note: heavy book, please enquire for shipping rate.. Hardcover. Folio.

        Palaeontological memoirs and notes of the late Hugh Falconer

      Hardwicke, London 1868 - Falconer, Hugh (1808-65). Palaeontological memoirs and notes of the late Hugh Falconer, A.M., M.D. . . . Compiled and edited by Charles Murchison, M.D., F.R.S. 2 vols. Vol. I: lvi, 590pp. 34 plates, text illustrations. Vol. II: xiii, [77], 675pp. 38 plates, text illustrations. 215 140 mm. London: Robert Hardwicke, 1868. Modern quarter morocco, marbled boards. Library stamps on verso of title pages of both volumes, and small stamp on the title of Vol. II. Marginal repairs to frontispiece and first 7 leaves of Vol. I, a few pencil marks in the margins, light toning, but very good. First Edition of the collected paleontological works, both published and previously unpublished, of the Scottish geologist and botanist Hugh Falconer, whose extensive studies of India's fossil mammals earned him and his colleague Proby Cautley the London Geological Society's prestigious Wollaston Medal. Falconer became interested in paleontology while stationed in India as an employee of the British East India Company. In the early 1830s he discovered the Siwalik fossil beds in the southernmost part of the Himalayas, where he and Cautley excavated an enormous variety of now-extinct specimens, including the mastodon, sivatherium, saber-toothed tiger and the giant tortoise Colossochelys Atlas. Falconer's observations of the evolutionary history preserved in the Siwalik strata--long periods of stasis followed by short periods of rapid change--led him to introduce the evolutionary theory known as punctuated equilibrium, a theory further developed in the twentieth century by Niles Eldredge and Stephen Jay Gould. Upon his retirement and return to London in 1855 Falconer devoted all of his time to paleontological and geological pursuits, and became involved in the question of the antiquity of man. Together with Pengelly, Falconer was one of the first two scientists to visit Brixham Cave after its discovery in 1858, and he was instrumental in obtaining the necessary funding and scientific personnel for its excavation. Falconer's letter of 10 May 1858 to the Geological Society informing them of the Brixham Cave site is included in Volume II of the Palaeontological Memoirs, together with his report on the results of the cave excavations delivered on 9 September. We have not been able to find any evidence that this letter and report were published prior to their inclusion in the Palaeontological Memoirs. The excavation of Brixham Cave culminated in what Falconer's biographer Charles Murchison called "the great and sudden revolution in modern opinion, respecting the probable existence at a former period of man and many extinct mammalia" (p. 486).Falconer left a large portion of his paleontological researches unpublished on his death, while many of his earlier papers had appeared only in such hard-to-find periodicals such as the Journal of the Asiatic Society of Bengal. The present collection brings together all of Falconer's memoirs on paleontology, with the first volume containing his work on the fossil zoology of the Siwalik formations and the second his later paleontological researches, including his investigations on the antiquity of man and his important memoir on the fossil rhinoceros, published here for the first time. This set is rare and very difficult to find. Dictionary of Scientific Biography. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

Malthus was subsequently appointed Professor of History and Political Economy at the East India Company's Haileybury College. Very scarce; OCLC locates copies at the Universities of Illinois, Ohio State and The International Labour Office only, with one further copy located in Switzerland. [Attributes: First Edition]

        [Photograph]: The Last Revolutionary Soldier: One Hundred and Nine Years of Age. Daniel Frederick Bakeman

      [Boston?]: A.D. Cross. 1868. Small carte de visite photograph, approximately 2.5" x 4". Fine in original printed envelope which adds additional biographical information. The envelope is lightly soiled, but otherwise near fine. Letterpress printed below the photo is the publication information. The envelope includes information about Bakeman's birth on the Van Rensselaer Patent in Albany County, New York on October 10, 1759, his service under Capt. Van Aernam and Col. Willet during the last four years of the Revolution, and his then current residency in Cattaraugus, N.Y. In 1864 Reverend Elias Brewster Hilliard (the maternal grandfather of poet Archibald MacLeish) compiled his book The Last Men of the Revolution: A Photograph of Each from Life..., now one of the most eagerly sought after of early photography books. Bakeman was not among the six veterans pictured, and there is much reason to believe that Bakeman was indeed the last survivor of the Revolution, and one of very few to live through the Civil War as well. A rare photograph, and excessively so with the printed envelope. .

        On Discontinuous Movements of Fluids

      Taylor and Francis, London 1868 - FIRST EDITION IN ENGLISH, in original wrappers, of what is generally recognized as the earliest paper on hydrodynamic stability. Preceded by the printing in German of the same year. "In 1868 Helmholtz published a paper on what happens along the contact surface of two infinitely extended fluids if the one moves relative to the other. In that publication, 'Uber dickontinuirliche Flussigkeits-Bewegungen,' [On discontinuous fluid motions], he pointed out that if a water jet issues from a sharp-edged orifice into a tank filled with water, a discontinuity in the velocity distribution is observed at the edge of the orifice. In is view, in a non-viscous fluid a whole surface of discontinuity separating the jet from the surrounding quiescent water can be assumed. Even though Helmholtz had doubts as to the stability of such a surface of discontinuity, he suggested that such a region of irrotational flow bordered by surfaces across which the velocity, but not the pressure, suffers a discontinuous change, should be investigated. The challenge was met by Lord Kelvin. [It] had a pivotal influence. Helmholtz-Kelvin instability, as it came to be known, became an active topic for research among theoretical fluid dynamicists over the following century" (Pasipoularides, Herat's Vortex: Intracardiac Blood Flow Phenomena). IN: The London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine, Fourth Series, No. 244, November 1868, pp. 337-348. Octavo, original printed wrappers. Wrappers with light soiling and mild wear to spine and edges. Rare in original wrappers. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The mechanic treatment of deformities of the mouth, congenital and accidental. Presentation copy.

      - Ramsay, Robert and Coles, James Oakley. The mechanical treatment of deformities of the mouth, congenital and accidental. 8vo. 95 [1]pp. Hand-colored lithographed plate. London: John Churchill and Sons, 1868. 209 x 132 mm. Later buckram, library shelfmark tooled at foot of spine. Endpapers a bit foxed, otherwise a very good copy. Embossed stamp of the Incorporated Dental Society on title and a few other leaves. Presentation copy, inscribed on the half-title: "Annandale Esq. with the Authors' kind regards. October 1868."First Edition. A treatise on the manufacture and use of artificial palates in the treatment of cleft palate, which the authors claimed to be the first to appear since Snell's Observations on the History, Use and Construction of Obduratuers, or Artificial Palates (1828). The first chapter deals with the origin and development of congenital cleft palate, and last two chapters contain case histories of both congenital and accidental palatal deformities. "The novelty in these instances does not consist so much in the general line of treatment adopted, as in the fact that where elastic rubber has been used it has been adapted in metallic moulds, made expressly for each case, to the outline of the deficiency which it was intended to supply; the facility with which this can be done being considerably increased since the first manufacture of elastic rubber in this country, about eighteen months since, so pure and so carefully prepared as to be suitable for dental purposes. Before this date we were dependent on America for our supply" (p. vi).The recipient of this copy may have been the Scottish surgeon Thomas Annandale (1838-1907), who in 1877 succeeded Lister as regius professor of clinical surgery at the University of Edinburgh; see the DNB.

        The Captive Missionary: being an Account of the Country and People of Abyssinia. Embracing a Narrative of King Theodore's Life and his Treatment of Political and Religious Missions.

      London: Cassell, Petter, and Galpin, [1868] - Octavo. Original blue cloth, title gilt to spine, entwined in shackles, blind panels to the boards, large gilt device of an Abyssinian warrior to the upper board. A little rubbed, hinges repaired and spine lined, light toning, but a very good copy. Steel engraved group portrait frontispiece and 7 other steel-engraved plates. First edition. One of the key accounts of the events which led to the Abyssinian Expedition. Stern - "an arrogant bigot" (ODNB) - was treated particularly harshly. "The detention of Stern and his companions was widely publicized by Mrs Stern. The imprisonment of Cameron [British Consul] and Rassam [British Resident at Aden] was, however, politically more important, for it caused the British government to decide on military intervention. An expedition commanded by Sir Robert Cornelis Napier was dispatched from Bombay in the summer of 1867 The British crossed northern Ethiopia without opposition. The first engagement took place below Maqdala, on 10 April 1868, when Téwodros's army was overwhelmed by British superiority in weapons. The emperor, wishing to make peace, released Stern and the other Europeans, but Napier decided to storm Maqdala, on 13 April. Téwodros, to escape capture, committed suicide. Maqdala, to Stern's satisfaction, was burnt to the ground on 17 April, after which the British expedition withdrew from Ethiopia." His health damaged by his experiences, Stern, who had originally gone to Ethiopia to convert the Falashas, remained in London thereafter and continued his work for the London Society for Promoting Christianity amongst the Jews, dying in 1885.

        LEAF PRINTS: or, Glimpses at Photography.

      Benerman & Wilson,, Philadelphia: 1868 - Mounted 3-leaf albumen photograph as frontispiece. An interesting, fairly-early manual on the field of photography, as it stands poised to enter its 4th decade. Himes, in 1868, was professor of natural sciences at Dickinson College; he would continue in this academic role well into the 1890s. He manifested an early interest in photography, an interest that would remain life-long. This, Himes' first published book, primarily addresses the silver process of leaf prints [i.e., no camera involved], but also the silverless processes of "Ferricyanide of Potassium (Blue)" and "Bichromate of Potassa (Brown)". At the time, not extensively used as a commercial process, 'leaf prints' would be 'rediscovered' & used effectively in the early 20th C. by such photographers as Man Ray & Christian Schad. A title scarce in the trade, with AmEx showing the last copy to auction being 1994. Modest wear & soiling to binding. Crinkled ffep. Frontis tissue-guard excised. Light foxing. A VG - VG+ copy. Original publisher's green cloth binding with gilt stamped title lettering & device to front board & rear board stamped in blind.

        The Correspondence of Charles Darwin Parts 1 and 2 Volume 16, 1868 Parts 1 and 2 v. 16

      Cambridge University Press. Hardcover. New. Hardcover. 1312 pages. Dimensions: 9.5in. x 6.5in. x 2.9in.Charles Darwin depended on correspondence to collect data from all over the world, and to discuss his emerging ideas with scientific colleagues, many of whom he never met in person. In January of 1868, Darwins Variation under Domestication was published. The first printing of 1, 500 copies rapidly sold out so that the publisher, John Murray, ordered a second printing. Responses to this new book, added to Darwins continuing research into sexual selection and the expression of the emotions, increased the quantity of Darwins correspondence to such an extent that that we present the letters he wrote and received during this period in chronological order across two volumes. Notes and appendices put them into context, explain references, and provide information on related works. For information on the Charles Darwin Correspondence Project, founded by Frederick Burkhardt, the editor of this set, visit http: www. darwinproject. ac. uk. This item ships from multiple locations.
