        Die Ausmessung der stromenden Blutvolumina. Offprint

      1868. Dogiel, Jan (1830-1905). Die Ausmessung der strumenden Blutvolumina. Offprint from Berichte der k. Sachs. Gesell. d. Wiss., math.-phys. Classe, Sitzung am 12 December 1867 (1868). [1], 200-275, [3]pp. Text illustrations. 222 x 145 mm. Original plain wrappers, small split in spine. Light toning, but a fine copy. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 779. The invention of the Stromuhr, a double vessel on a swivel for measuring blood volume flow. "An accurate method of measuring blood flow was not available until 1868, when Dogiel, working in Ludwig's laboratory, described the 'Stromuhr'" (Fishman & Richards, Circulation of the Blood: Men and Ideas, p. 679). Dogiel was a student of Carl Ludwig, professor of physiology at the University of Leipzig; "so far as the advancement of knowledge of the circulation is concerned, and particularly the action of the heart, Carl Ludwig and his school probably contributed a larger share than any other group" (ibid., p. 87).

Ouvrage orné de nombreuses illustrations originales hors texte de Gustave Courbet. Dos légèrement fendillé en tête comportant également un léger manque. Emile Zola cite cet ouvrage dans 'L'Evénement illustré' du 5 mai 1868: 'c'est là une oeuvre qui fera sensation. L'auteur est un utilitaire tombant à bras raccourcis sur la bourgeoisie fainéante et oisive. (.) Courbet ne pouvait guère trouver un texte dont l'esprit convînt mieux à son genre de talent. Le Franc-Comtois a dû se réjouir en lui de ce plaidoyer en faveur des paysans, des rudes enfants de la terre. Aussi, comme il s'est mis volontiers à dauber les bourgeois, les messieurs qui ne sauraient distinguer une pelle d'un râteau ! Chacun de ses dessins est une satire.' Très rare.

      Brooklyn: D.S. Holmes, [1868].. Broadside, 13 x 10 inches. Some small tears, chipping and loss to top and right edges. Minor foxing. Very good. Broadside printed for the U.S. Presidential Campaign of 1868, which pitted former New York Governor Horatio Seymour against Gen. Ulysses S. Grant. This broadside points out Seymour's Copperhead tendencies and statements made by him in 1864, linking him to similar sentiments made by notorious traitor Benedict Arnold. Seymour's Copperhead utterances during the war haunted his campaign, and he lost decisively to Grant. The text printed here strives to demonstrate: ^"...the points made by Horatio Seymour against the Administration in 1864 [re] identical, point by point, with those made by Benedict Arnold against Washington and the Continental Congress in 1780....The Copperhead chiefs of these times, who draw so lavishly upon the sophistries and fallacies of 1780 for the furtherance of their factious designs, cannot too well understand that the sequel to all this is endless disgrace. They must not expect to fight the Government with weapons of the Tories and of the blue-light Federalists, without sharing the same fate." ^OCLC locates three copies (incorrectly dated 1864), at the New-York Historical Society, the Library Company, and the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library.

        Autograph memorandum.

      No place, [c. 1868]. - 8vo (206 x 134 mm). 3 pp. on a single bifolium. Autograph memorandum, bearing instructions for the preparation of the map appearing in his "Saint Paul" (1869), the third (and arguably best) part of Renan&#146;s "Histoire des origines du christianisme", the magnum opus which had begun in 1863 with "Vie de Jésus" and became a succès de scandale. Published by Michel Lévy Frères in 1869, "Saint Paul" contained the fruits of the journey Renan made with his wife Cornélie Scheffer following in the footsteps of the historical Paul. It also contained a detailed map with coloured itineraries of each of the journeys. The present memorandum provides the colour-coding for each of these, together with no less than 33 amendments to the details of the map. - Offered with a carte de visite of the architect Edmond Guillaume (1826-94) with Renan&#146;s autograph pencil notes to verso giving directions to his house in Sèvres (tipped to paper mount) and a letter (20 May 1893) from Noémie Psichari, Renan&#146;s daughter. - Provenance: Von Scholl collection.

        The Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication

      London: John Murray,, 1868. In two volumes. With illustrations. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth, blind-panelled covers, titles to spines gilt, dark blue-coated endpapers. 43 text woodcuts. Bookplate of King's College, Cambridge. Extremities lightly bumped, mild rubbing to spine, short area of very light wear at head of first joint on each volume, very mild cockling on first volume, minor marks to covers and endpapers, stitching slightly strained in places. Overall, a very good copy, with the cloth bright and fresh. First edition, second issue. The term "survival of the fittest" (borrowed at Wallace's insistence from Herbert Spencer's 1866 Principles of Biology) was first used by Darwin in the first edition of this work, preceding its first use in the fifth edition of the Origin of Species (1869). Variation of Animals and Plants under Domestication was a full statement of the facts on which the theories of the Origin of Species were based, though leaving aside an account of human evolution for The Descent of Man (1871). Though Darwin studied at Christ's College rather than King's, he enjoyed attending concerts in King's College Chapel.

        The "Ever-Victorious Army" A History of the Chinese Campaign under Lt.-Col. C. G. Gordon, C.B. R.E. and of the Suppression of the Tai-Ping Rebellion

      Edinburgh: William Blackwood and Sons, 1868. Octavo, with six six folding maps, a most attractive copy in contemporary red polished calf with gilt ornament. Gordon in China - the formative years. An account of the Tai-ping rebellion against the Qing dynasty (1850 to 1864) with special detail of the operations of the 'Ever-Victorious Army', an elite force of Chinese troops trained in modern methods under European command. The 'Ever-Victorious Army' came under the authority of Lieutenant-Colonel (later General) Charles Gordon, a legendary figure in British colonial history renowned for his heroic death at the hands of the Mahdi's army after the fall of Khartoum. This book concerns an earlier phase in Gordon's career - the event that won him his nickname Charles "Chinese" Gordon. The Taiping rebellion was a widespread peasant revolt that led to immense loss of life through ensuing disturbance and famines. Fatality estimates vary between 20 and 30 million persons. This account, sympathetic to Chinese interests and somewhat critical of British policy, is the work of journalist Andrew Wilson (1831-1881), born in India to colonial missionaries and later editor of the China Mail and Bombay Times.

        Teoriia nravstvennykh chuvstv ? S pis'mami M. Kondorse k Kabanisu o simpatii. Perevel P. A. Bibikov

      St. Petersburg: I. I. Glazunov,, 1868. [The Theory of Moral Sentiments ... With the letters of M. Condorcet to Cabanis on sympathy. Translated by P. A. Bibikov]. Octavo (207 × 135 mm), pp. 515 + 4pp. contents. Contemporary half diced blue roan and marbled boards, spine ruled and decorated gilt, marbled endpapers. Small Russian stamp to front free endpaper and annotation in ballpoint to rear endpaper. Short crack at foot of front board, spine gilding a little faded, extremities lightly rubbed. Marginal damp mark to first and last few leaves. A very good copy. First edition in Russian of The Theory of Moral Sentiments, very rare. This landmark translation (it is still the one used in Russia today) was made by Pavel Bibikov, who had brought out a translation of the Wealth of Nations (the edition read by Lenin) two years before. Both were published as part of his series the Library of Classical European Writers. "Bibikov [1831?"1875] already had a reputation as a historian, philosopher, and literary critic, and this undoubtedly had a part in the generally high level of presentation of the translations" (Artemieva, p. 160). The translations were probably made via French, but whereas Bibikov's Wealth of Nations was superceded by the end of the century, his Theory of Moral Sentiments remained the only Russian version available until 1997.

        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.)"

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. und eh. Bleistiftzeichnung

      Düsseldorf, 12. August 1868.. 1 S. 8vo.. An Herrn Heydendahl: "[ ] Es wäre mir lieb, wen Sie zu mir kämen, auch die versprochen[en] Rahmen schickten. Ich bin seit langer Zeit ohne Nachricht über das letzte Bild u.s.w. Mein Sohn war öfters bei Ihn[en], dies zu sagen, hat Sie aber nie finden könn[en]. Mir liegt an der Abwicklung dieser Sache viel [ ]" - Die Bleistiftzeichnung, 1 Seite gr.-8vo, zeigt einen knienden Bauern vor einem Trog fressender Schweine. - Hildebrandt studierte seit 1820 an der Berliner Kunstakademie, war dort u.a. Schüler Wilhelm von Schadows, dem er 1826 nach Düsseldorf folgte, und begleitete ihn 1829 nach Belgien, 1830/31 nach Italien. 1844 unternahm er eine Studienreise nach St. Petersburg, wo das Bild Newa bei St. Petersburg im Winter entstand. Seit 1832 unterrichtete er an der Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf und erhielt 1836 eine Professur, die er 1854 wegen Erkrankung niederlegte. Seit 1858 offiziell beurlaubt, bildete er von 1866-69 dennoch in einer Meisterklasse Maler aus. Er gehörte zu den Begründern der romantisch-poetischen Richtung der Düsseldorfer Malerei; er wirkte durch seine Maltechnik und Farbbehandlung schulbildend. Zu seinen Werken zählen "Die Räuber" (1829) und "Die Ermordung der Söhne Eduards IV." (1835), ferner zahlreiche Portraits.

      . Utrecht 10.III.1868. 4 Seiten gr.8°.. Frans Cornelis Donders (1818-1889), niederländischer Physiologe und Wegbereiter auf dem Gebiet der Augenheilkunde, führte die Korrektur des Astigmatismus durch Zylindergläser ein und entwickelte das erste Tonometer. - An den Vater seines Assistenten Theodor Wilhelm Engelmann, zunächst mit dem Dank für "die Winke, in Betreff des diaetetischen Verhaltens unseres Wilhelms", dann über den frühen Tod des Physiologen Albert von Bezold, bei dem Engelmann im Vorjahr promoviert hatte. - - "... Wie sympathisch wir sind bei dem schweren Verlust des trefflichen v. Bezold's brauche ich wohl kaum zu sagen: wir bemitleiden die arme junge Frau und die Eltern, aber besonders auch unseren Wilhelm, der Bezold nicht nur als Bruder liebte, sondern auch als Lehrer und Freund hoch verehrte. Und auch ich selber, gewiß wie Sie, habe Bezold als Mensch u. als Naturforscher hoch geschätzt, und kann seinen frühzeitigen Tod schwer verschmerzen ... - - Wir haben unseren Wilhelm vom Herzen gern, und mit grossem Vergnügen haben wir auch seine liebe Eltern kennen gelernt. Aber besonders erfreuen wir uns auch, dass der Band zwischen Willy und unsere Marie uns auch mit Ihnen ... in näherer Verbindung bringen wird ..." - - Theodor Wilhelm Engelmann (1843-1909) leitete später als Nachfolger Du Bois-Reymonds das Physiologische Institut der Berliner Universität; er heiratete nicht Donders' Tochter Marie, sondern die Pianistin Emma Brandes. - - Sehr selten.

        The Silks and Satins of the Field

      London 1868 - Ben Herring &#147;The Silks and Satins of the Field&#148; From McQueens Sporting London: 1868 Hand colored aquatint engraving Sheet size: 25" x 43 ½ " Framed size: 40 ½" x 60 ½" Ben Herring was born in 1830 into a family of English sporting artists. Ben, along with his brother John Federick Herring, Jr., was taught to paint by his father John Frederick Herring, Senior, a well known painter commissioned by the Duc d'Orleans (the French King Louis-Phillipe's son), the Duchess of Kent and Queen Victoria. Though not as famous as his brother or father, Ben had a fine eye for the anatomy of horses and his paintings are imposing and well crafted. Herring is best remembered for his pair of works The Silks and Satins of the Turf and The Silks and Satins of the Field which demonstrate his passion and skill for the horse races. This print recreates the splendor of the original painting while making it accessible to scores of sporting enthusiasts.

        Autograph letter signed to Latimer Clark

      1868 - Tait, Peter Guthrie (1831-1901). Autograph letter signed to [Josiah] Latimer Clark (1822-98). Edinburgh, July 27, 1868. 2 pp. 178 x 114 mm. Remains of mounting on blank verso of last page. Very good. From mathematician and physicist Peter Guthrie Tait, professor of natural philosophy at Edinburgh and co-author (with William Thomson) of the classic Treatise on Natural Philosophy (1867), a work that helped to define the modern discipline of physics. Tait's correspondent, Latimer Clark, was an electrical engineer and pioneer in submarine telegraphy; he worked on the Atlantic cable and in 1868 founded the company of Clark, Forde and Taylor, one of the leading submarine cable-laying firms of the nineteenth century. Clark was also an enthusiastic bibliophile, amassing an impressive library of nearly six thousand works on electricity and magnetism documented in the Catalogue of the Wheeler Gift (1909). Tait's letter, regarding the ordering of some mechanical apparatus from Clark, reads in part as follows:"Not being able to come to London myself, I asked my colleague Prof. Jenkin to report upon the apparatus you offer m. His report is, on the whole, satisfactory-but I am not quite sure about the Willis' Mech. Powers-will the wood stand the climate? If so, I must have them. Will you give me an estimate of the charge for packing (very securely) the whole collection? The expense of insurance and of carriage will be borne by the Madras govt. people . . ."Prof. Jenkin" refers to Fleeming Jenkin (1833-85), professor of engineering at the University of Edinburgh and a collaborator with Clark and William Thomson on the Atlantic cable and other important submarine telegraphy ventures.

        On a Method of Making a Direct Comparison of Electrostatic with Electromagnetic Force; with a Note on the Electromagnetic Theory of Light.

      - PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST. An important Maxwell paper on Electromagnetic Theory, First Edition, extracted from: Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London for the Year 1868, Volume 158, Part Ii. Pp. 643-657. (Received June 10, -Read June 18, 1868), large quarto, very good clean copy, disbound. "In 1865. Maxwell's next step after completing the dynamical analogy was to develop a group of eight equations describing the electromagnetic field. Maxwell remarked that the equations might be condensed, but "to eliminate a quantity which expresses a useful idea would be rather a loss than a gain in this stage of the enquiry". He had, in fact, simplified the equations in his fifth major paper, the short but important "Note on the Electromagnetic Theory of Light", writing them in an integral form without the function A, based on four postulates from electrical experiments.
