        La science absolue de l'espace indépendante de la vérité ou de la fausseté de l'axiôme XI d'Euclide (que l'on ne pourra jamais établir a priori); suivi de la quadrature géométrique du cercle, dans le cas de la fausseté de l'Axiôme XI... Précédé d'une Notice sur la Vie et les Travaux de W. et de J. Bolyai par M. Fr. Schmidt.

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1868. First separate edition, presentation copy from the translator, of the first vernacular translation of the famous Appendix by Janos Bolyai, one of the most important works in the history of mathematics. This Appendix, together with the independent work of Nikolai Lobachevsky, constitute the founding works of non-Euclidean geometry. Janos began working on his new geometry in 1820. Although his father Farkas had himself worked on the possibilities of a non-Euclidean geometry from his earliest days as a mathematician in Göttingen, and had corresponded with Gauss on the subject (even sending him a manuscript entitled Theoria parallelarum), he tried to discourage Janos from attempting to prove or refute Euclid's fifth postulate: 'You should not tempt the parallels in this way. I know this way until its end - I also have measured this bottomless night. I have lost in it every light, every joy of my life ... You should shy away from it as if from lewd discourse, it can deprive you of all your leisure, your health, your peace of mind and your entire happiness. This infinite darkness might perhaps absorb a thousand giant Newtonian towers, it will never be light on earth, and the miserable human race will never have something absolutely pure, not even geometry' (quoted from DSB). Despite his reservations, Farkas sent the manuscript of Janos's work to Gauss, who replied that he could not praise it because he himself had reached the same conclusions some 30 years earlier although he had not published his discovery! This assertion so discouraged Janos that it effectively ended his career as a creative mathematician, but his manuscript was published in 1832 as Appendix. Scientiam spatii absolute veram exhibens: a veritate aut falsitate Axiomatis XI Euclidei (a priori haud unquam decidenda) independentem to his father's large textbook Tentamen juventutem studiosam in elementa matheseos purae, elementaris ac sublimioris, methodo intuitiva, evidentiaque huic propria, introducendi. Printed in a small edition (probably around 150 copies) by an obscure Hungarian college publisher, in a small town in Transylvania, the work remained a forgotten masterpiece until, 35 years later, Riemann's paper Über die Hypothesen, welche der Geometrie zu Grunde liegen reawakened interest in this field. This translation first appeared at the end of 1867 in Mémoires de la Société des Sciences physique et naturelles de Bordeaux (pp. 189-248) with the present first separate edition appearing a few months later. The translation is preceded by a "Translator's Note" (pp. 5-6) and "Notice on the life and work of the Hungarian mathematicians Wolfgang [Farkas] Bolyai and Janos Bolyai" by Franz Schmidt (pp. 7-21). After gaining a doctorate for research in celestial mechanics at the Sorbonne in 1855, Jules Hoüel (1823-86) was appointed to the chair of pure mathematics in the Faculty of Science at Bordeaux in 1859 and held this post until his death. Hoüel became interested in non-Euclidean geometry once he had been made aware of the work of Bolyai and Lobachevsky. He published his own Essai d'une exposition rationnelle des principes fondamentaux de la géométrie in 1863, a copy of which fell by chance into the hands of one Franz Schmidt, a young architect from Temesvár in Hungary. Schmidt wrote to Hoüel for advice on continuing his mathematical studies; Hoüel answered helpfully, and later sought Schmidt's help in procuring Bolyai's work. Schmidt succeeded in finding two copies of Bolyai's work for Hoüel: one Hoüel proceeded to translate himself, the other he sent to Giuseppe Battaglini, asking him to make Bolyai's work known in Italy. Battaglini published his Italian translation of the Appendix in Giornale di matematiche in 1868. Giusto Bellavitis (1803-80) is known for his geometrical calculus which influenced Grassmann's Ausdehnungslehre, for his contributions to algebraic geometry, and for his work in the history of mathematics (he vindicated Pietro Cataldi by attributing to him the invention of continued fractions). DSB II: 269-71; Bonola, Non-Euclidean geometry, pp. 122-5; Dibner 116; Evans 13; Horblit 69b; Norman 259; Parkinson pp. 295 & 296 (all referring to the first edition of 1832). Large 8vo (254 x 166 mm), pp. 64, uncut in the original blue printed wrappers, inscribed by the translator Jules Houel to Giusto Bellavitis (1803-80) on half-title.

The classic work on the solar system in which Angström demonstrated the presence of hydrogen and a number of other elements in the sun. Solar spectroscopy provided the first scientific evidence (other than the occasional meteorite) that the elements known on earth are also present elsewhere in the universe. Angström also established a scale of wave-lengths for measuring spectral lines, replacing Kirchoff's arbitrary scale. Angström's system was based on a unit of one ten millionth of a millimetre, named the "Angström unit" in his honor. He conducted detailed measurements of more than 1000 spectral lines. The plates are in effect a map of the solar spectrum, and show the radiation of the solar spectrum ranging from 0.8 to 0.4 micron and from red to purple colour. It identifies the particular lines of manganese, aluminium and titanium. The lithographic plates are after R. Thalén (1827-1905), Angström's laboratory assistant. The lithographic frontispiece to the text volume is showing Angström's spectrometer. Some copies have a further 2 plates showing the ultraviolet spectrum, but the Norman, Gedeon, Green and Honeyman copies - like the present copy - do not have these. Near Fine....

        Chinese Village, Pokfulum. (Hongkong).

      (circa1868). Original albumen photograph measures 19 x 26.9cm. Laid on thick paper, matted. Matt measures 38.1 x 46cm. "Floyd, William Pryor (1834 - c. 1900). Important and highly talented British photographer whose Hong Kong studio was, for a time, one of the most successful commercial operations of its kind in the Far East. Worked in Shanghai (1864) and Macau (Aomen) (1865 - 1866 or 1867) before settling in Hong Kong (1867 - 1874)" (History of Photography in China: 1861-1879. Western Photographers Terry Bennett. 2010)This original albumen print, entitled "Chinese Village, Pokfulam (Hongkong)" was purchased in Hong Kong about 25 years ago. It was attributed to William Pryor Floyd by the dealer who sold it at that time and this seems likely. We could find only one institution who holds a copy of this image. Of superior quality and in fine condition, it has historical as well as photographic interest, because one hundred and fifty years later, despite so much change all over Hong Kong as well as in its immediate area, this small settlement continues to exist to this day. The old houses shown in the photograph still stand, though for long engulfed by wooden huts and other, initially temporary, residential structures built for the most part by persons fleeing the Chinese mainland during the Japanese invasion and civil war between 1937-49. Despite the ever-present threat of clearance for development which hangs over all such squatter settlements, Pokfulam village has somehow survived, and there is now more interest in its preservation.A lively Pokfulam Village Cultural Landscape Group has existed for some years and has a firmly established presence on the Internet. Its website provides information on the village as it presently exists, and its own 'intangible cultural heritage" activities, including festivals. The historical section also provides some follow-up information about the old houses shown on this 1868 photograph - which features on its home page - as follows:"Interpretation from Historic Photo: From one historical picture named as "Chinese Village at Pok Fu Lam" taken in 1868, you can see 2 rows [?] of single storey houses with pitched tile roofs in the forest. According to the [number] of doors, it is believed that there were 17 families...." Pokfulam Village was also the subject of a paper written by Dr James Hayes and published in 1972 in the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society HK Branch - "There is nothing attractive about the present village, which mostly consists of small single-storey stone or wooden structures erected in haphazard fashion round the single row of old village houses that constituted the original village. The village is listed in the Chinese district gazetteer of San On (1819 edition) and thus pre-dates the British occupation of Hong Kong in 1841. The Chan (?) clan of Pokfulam, which probably settled the area in the 18th century, is still there today. They are Puntis, from Po On district. The Chans owned most of the agricultural land in the area, and fished by line and stakenet from suitable points on the coast." (When referring to this item please quote stockid 150504).

        Les Enfants du Capitaine Grant. Voyage autour du monde.

      Paris: J. Hetzel, circa, 1868. Quarto, engraved frontispiece and title-page vignette, generously illustrated throughout; boards a little rubbed yet an excellent bright copy in original gilt tooled scarlet cloth. A magnificent edition, with dramatic and finely engraved illustrations throughout.Jules Verne, one of the most popular nineteenth-century adventure writers, has set this racing tale of adventure against the theme of Pacific exploration and discovery. In this story much of the action takes place in Australia, especially Victoria. There are adventures with Aborigines, bushrangers, and explorers (including a version of the death of Burke). The third and final part which is set in New Zealand was later reissued under the title "Among the Cannibals". Indeed, this section is largely based on published Pacific voyage accounts; it includes a scene of Captain Cook's first landing on 6 October 1769, as well as a brief synopsis of the main voyages to New Zealand, including mention, for example, of the loss of the cutter from the Adventure during Cook's second voyage, at Grass Cove.Les Enfants du Capitaine Grant was later republished in smaller formats for a wide audience, yet this lavishly illustrated large format edition in its handsome red gilt binding remains highly desirable.

      - Bleistift, auf Velin, links unten signiert, rechts unten bezeichnet „Madame Prévot au monde (?) qui était faité la location du Vert Logis". Verso bezeichnet „Le Provès Humbert". 21,3:15,5 cm. Nachdem Renouard als Dekorationsmaler tätig war, besuchte er seit 1868 die École des Beaux-arts in Paris im Atelier von I.A. Pils (1813/15-1875). Mit Pils arbeitete er an der Pariser Oper und führte dort 1875 Plafondmalereien aus. 1877 debütierte er im Pariser Salon. Auch Ausstellungsbeteiligungen in England an der Royal Society of Painters and Etchers und dem New English Art Club sind zu verzeichnen. 1894 organisierte der bekannte japanische Kunsthändler und Sammler Tadamasa Hayashi (1863-1906) in Paris eine Ausstellung der Drucke und Zeichnungen Renouards. Anläßlich der Weltausstellungen von 1889 und 1900 erhielt er Goldene Medaillen. Als Illustrator arbeitete er bei einigen der bekanntesten französischen Zeitschriften, so für die L Art, L Illustration oder La Vie Moderne.

        Japanese Game Board "Puzzle for Navigating or Wandering the World / Navigation et Prominade der Morde (sic) "

      1868 - A geographical board game created in Japan during the Meiji period when the Emperor was opening Japanese society to Western influences. Roughly translated the Japanese title is, "Countries by Cruise Ship." The game starts with the key in the lower center of the board, with six circles which correspond to color coded regions of the world; Asia (yellow); Europe (red); North America (blue); South America (yellow); Africa (red); Australia (blue). It culminates in the top margin at Mount Fuji. There are 100 squares in 8 rows on the board, and each box within the row has an associated image and text in Japanese; some images correspond with the landscape of the destination - others are quite imaginary. Besides landscapes, there are many birds and animals (elephant, monkey, oxen, antelope, camel), ships and flags. There are soldiers, bathers, a man reading in a chair, Tartars and some Westerners. The indigenous people at the North Pole are wearing only loin cloths, sitting next to a fire. The title appears in three different languages at the right border of the game, first in French "Navigation et prominade der Morde" (sic), then in English, "Puzzle for Navigating or Wandering the World", then in Japanese. Further down on right margin are instructions for playing (in Japanese)- 'Roll dice' and 'How to play', 'New Year's Day - Yokahama', 'January 1868', 'New edition' and possibly the name of the creator of the game. Above the image in the each box is a series of numbers and names which correspond to the number of days it takes to sail to a location. The North American region includes Mexico with a conestoga wagon in Row 3 Box 1 (or 3-1) ; Columbia, South of the US (5-3) (buildings); New York (5-2) (men farming/scythe); San Francisco (8-6) (red roof), Washington, D.C. (2-5) with an image of the Capitol dome; (8-15) is the North Pole. The Asiatic region displays: Beijing (2-2) identified with a wall and covered urns; Chosen (Korea) with a tiger (2-3) ; Siam (4-1) (King); Sumatra (6-3); Siberia (7-3); Kirghiz (8-3); Siberia (7-3); Ryukyu (2-2); Tokyo (5-1) (with soldiers); Canton (4-4) (tea ceremony); Hong Kong (4-5); Taiwan (4-6); Peking (1-5); Tartary (5-9); Persia (3-9) (bathers wearing leaf skirts (?); Constantinople (1-7) with a mosque dome and the crescent on top with a red designed flag; Manchuria (5-5); Ceylon (5-12) with stacked tea bales and warehouse; (6-7) is a port in India (with a camel). The Australian region includes Sydney (8-2) (water, hills, a domed and rectangular buildings); New Zealand (7-13) with a many-masted early ship at shore, possibly one of Captain Cook's ships, flying a flag of St. George; the Antarctic/South Pole (or Port) (5-4) (ice/sea). European locales displayed include: London (1-1) with a bridge over the Thames; Lisbon (2-1); Austria (1-2) (two small animals); Greece (3-6) with a blue and white striped flag; Amsterdam (2-6); Denmark (3-10) ; Paris (1-7) a group of Westerners erecting (or pulling down) a rope line hung with flags, a few French and another red flag with diagonal cross bars; St. Petersburg (1-3); (5-7) is the Mediterranean; Paris (7-4) with two men sitting at an outdoor table, presumably at a café. Africa is represented by Canary (image of a globe) (6-13). Many of the locations were not identifiable, and those that were identified were done so by Japanese speakers. The game board measures 35 x 21.5" with 1/2 to 1" additional border. Woodblock with original hand color. Sometimes worn at original folds, some loss at a few of those intersections, a couple of old wormholes, backed on tissue, 1.5" square at bottom border with loss of text. The images are clear.

        [WWV96]. Die Meistersinger. Full score

      Mainz: B. Schott's Sohnen [PN 18469], 1868. First Edition, later issue. Klein p. 33. Deathridge et al p. 481. Hirsch II, 937. The two first printings were very limited, consisting of only 50 and 25 copies respectively (Fuld p. 449). The present copy lacks the dedication to King Ludwig, carries the plate number at the bottom of the title-page, and is stamped "135" at the upper margin of the second leaf, indicating that it is, in all likelihood, part of the third printing of the work. Die Meistersinger was first performed on June 21, 1868 in Munich at the Königliches Hof- und Nationaltheater to Wagner's own libretto. "The only comedy among Wagner's mature works, Die Meistersinger is a rich, perceptive music drama widely admired for its warm humanity but regarded with suspicion by some for its dark underside. Its genial aspect is immensely enhanced by the technical mastery displayed by Wagner at the height of his powers." Barry Millington in Grove Music Online. Steinbach, a friend of Brahms, studied in Vienna with Notterbohm and Door and later in Karlsruhe with Dessoff and Lachner. "In 1880 he became assistant Kapellmeister in Mainz and in 1886, on the recommendation of Hans von Bülow, was appointed to teach counterpoint and composition at the Hoch Conservatory in Frankfurt. In the same year Georg II, Duke of Sachsen-Meiningen, appointed him Kapellmeister of the Meiningen Hofkapelle, an ensemble that under Bülow (1880-85), had become one of the best orchestras in Europe. Steinbach became Generalmusikdirektor of the ensemble in 1893 and Intendant in 1896. As the friend of Brahms, he became the accepted interpreter of Brahms's orchestral music... From 1903 he was civic Kapellmeister, director of the Gürzenich concerts and director of the conservatory in Cologne. Steinbach's period in Cologne marked a highpoint in the musical life of the city..." Herta Müller in Grove Music Online.. Two volumes. Folio. Mid-tan quarter leather with raised bands on spine in gilt-ruled compartments with titling gilt, full dark olive green embossed cloth with titling gilt. 1f. (lithographic title), 1f. (recto cast list and description of the setting for each of the three acts, verso blank) 1f. (recto list of performing forces, verso blank), 570 pp. Engraved. From the library of the German conductor and composer Fritz Steinbach (1855-1916), with his name and "Weihnachten 1880" stamped in gilt to lower margin of upper board. With occasional performance parkings in pencil and blue crayon, quite likely in Steinbach's hand. Binding slightly worn, rubbed, and bumped. Some light foxing, minor tears, and thumbing; corner of pp. 161/162 lacking, not affecting music; tear to lower inner corner of pp. 549/550 extending into printed area but with no loss. A very good copy overall.

        An Essay on the Principle of Population: in Russian.] Opyt o zakonie narodonaseleniia ili izlozhenie proshedshago i nastoiashchago dieistviia etogo zakona na blagodenstvie cheloviecheskago roda, s prilozheniem nieskol'kikh izsliedovanii o nadezhdie na ostranenie ili smiagchenie prichiniaemogo im zla. [Translated by P. A. Bibikov.]

      St Petersburg: E. E. Glazunova, 1868 - 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. Wrappers a little soiled, some wear to spine ends, front wrapper of volume 1 separating from spine at foot, some pencil marking to head of rear cover. Overall an excellent set, uncut and largely unopened. Ownership inscription to title-pages and ownership stamp of Professor Katsenelenbaum of Moscow to first leaf of text in each volume. 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. 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]

        Thèse…Recherches Chimiques et Physiologiques sur l'Erythroxylum Coca du Pérou et la Cocaïne

      One lithographic plate & several tables & graphs in the text. 4 p.l., 92 pp. Small 4to, modern paper wrappers. Paris: A. Parent, 1868. First edition of the first experimental study of cocaine. "For this 1868 doctoral dissertation, Moréno y Maïz, a former Peruvian army surgeon, conducted the first experimental studies on cocaine. He suggests that cocaine has a sensory paralyzing effect and that it could be used as a local anesthetic. The paper is one of the earliest studies on the pharmacology of cocaine, and one of the earliest suggesting its properties as a local anesthetic."-Sim, The Heritage of Anesthesia, p. 108. Moreno y Maiz, for his doctoral thesis in Paris, studied the coca leaf and its byproduct, cocaine. The present work comprehensively describes both the coca leaf and the drug. It also details the experiments in which he injects frogs and rats with cocaine. On page 77, Moreno y Maiz writes in a footnote (translated): "Might we be able to use it as a local anesthetic? It is impossible to say after so few experiments; it is for the future to decide." The work influenced future writings on the subject, including Sigmund Freud who in his Ãœber Coca cites Moreno y Maiz several times. Fine copy. ? Garrison-Morton 1868.

      Richebourg, photo[graphie] de la Couronne. Paris, Quai de l'Horloge, 29, 1868, , , tirage albuminé [190 x 250 mm] contrecollé sur carton vert pâle, Nom de la patiente manuscrit en pied du carton, date de 1868 et identification, "n° 4 bis", en tête. Femme nue photographiée de dos, présentant probablement une spondylo-discite lombaire basse ou spondylolisthésis. Rare cliché médical réalisé par Pierre-Ambroise Richebourg sur carton frappé de son timbre à sec. Ambroise Richebourg (1810-1875) fut formé à l'optique par Vincent Chevalier et à la photographie par Daguerre. Il a participé à l'aventure de la photographie dès ses origines et a touché à presque tous les domaines qui la concernent, faisant parfois figure de précurseur ; c'est notamment lui qui a réalisé les premières photographies microscopiques pour Alfred Donné en 1840. La postérité l'a surtout reconnu comme photographe officiel du Second Empire. Il fut pourtant un véritable "touche-à-tout" qui réalisa aussi bien des nus, des portraits au daguerréotype, des images scientifiques, des portraits d'identité pour passeports, de la photographie judiciaire et, ce dont témoigne le cliché décrit ci-dessus, de la photographie médicale.

      New York: Dick & Fitzgerald, 1868. [5],114,[19]pp. including illustrations. 12mo. Original half cloth and pictorial yellow paper boards. Boards soiled, corners worn, spine cloth a bit faded. Quite clean internally. Very good. Jonathan H. Green, "the reformed gambler," is the most important figure in the early literature of American gambling. A famed gambler in his youth, he was known for his talents from Texas to Boston and all points in between. He abandoned gambling just shy of age thirty, and became an advocate against it, seeking to expose the tricks of the trade. Here he offers the inside scoop on games such as Dog Loo (played on the Red River), Whist, Thimbles (or cups), Poker, and Euchre, and on techniques such as palming, lapping, forcing cards, shuffling, cutting, dealing, stocking the pack, and cogging dice. Many other interesting subjects are also discussed, including horse racing, and nailing a card to a wall by a pistol shot. Green adds numerous tales of personal experience, and the illustrations offer the reader the ability to recognize common sleights of hand. Of course, by offering detailed information on how to recognize gamblers' tricks, Green is also providing an advanced tutorial for the aspiring gambler or cheat. The copyright date on the verso of the titlepage appears to read 1850 (the first year of publication), but the worn type throughout, as well as the other titles advertised as available by Dick and Fitzgerald, indicates that this edition was likely produced around 1868. In any edition, a rare and significant work. TOOLE-STOTT 324.
