Joseph Beck, resident of Stoke Newington
1868. Joseph Beck [1829-1891] Quaker, optical instrument maker, the saviour of Stoke Newington's Clissold Park, ardent cyclist, astronomer, amateur magician, promoter of horseflesh as meat, and founder of the 'Druidic' Chindonax Club. A sturdy, quarto scrapbook filled with drawings illustrating the many aspects to the well-rounded personality of Joseph Beck, resident of Stoke Newington in north London. Beck was a solid, upper middle class citizen whose firm Beck and Beck manufactured optical intruments such as microscopes and opticians' aids, but this album of some 70 or so pages of black and white pen and ink drawings some by Ernest Beck, Joseph's brother, show Joseph to have been a man of many interests. There are several distinct strands within the book. Hippophagy, for example. A menu from the Langham Hotel's 'Banquet Hippophagique' has been pasted to one page. The menu, with an elaborate border of printed images of hunting, was for a dinner on the 6th February 1868, where most of the dishes were made from horseflesh. Periodic outbreaks of diseases amongts livestock such as Foot and Mouth led to meat shortages and there were attempts to persuade people, especially the poor to eat horsemeat as a substitute. The grand dinner was promoted by Algernon Sydney Bicknell but clearly Joseph was a strong supporter of the cause. Several drawings including a cartoon of four waiters bearing a large platter of horse flesh preceded by a herald illustrate the point as well as a well-executed roundel of an emblem portraying Joseph astride a hobby horse. Three sepia cabinet photographs d … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Radioactivity]
1868. This experimental image (102 × 76 mm) is mounted on plain card (121 × 190 mm); both are in fine condition. The card is warmly inscribed (we believe to Becquerel himself) by its maker, one Julius Hartmann of Michelstadt, Hesse. He refers to it as a 'Radiographie'. On the verso he describes in detail how the image was produced. The stylized portrait of Becquerel in a laboratory setting, beneath which is the letter R within a pentagram emitting rays, was produced on a zinc plate by his brother, Professor A. Hartmann of Darmstadt (Friedrich Ludwig Albert Hartmann, 1868-1928, a professor of drawing and painting at Darmstadt, Germany, from 1902). The zinc plate was placed between a sensitized photographic plate and a layer of ground uranium ore ('faute de Radium') on a sheet of lead, and exposed for 69 hours! This gelatin silver print was produced from the resulting negative. Becquerel discovered radioactivity in 1896; he received the 1903 Nobel Prize for Physics jointly with Marie and Pierre Curie for his work, and the SI unit for radioactivity, the becquerel (Bq), is named after him. His relatively early death has been attributed to his handling of radioactive materials.

MAXWELL, JAMES CLERK

FIRST EDITION, THE EXTREMELY RARE OFFPRINT, OF THE LAST OF MAXWELL'S FIVE IMPORTANT PAPERS ON THE FOUNDATION OF ELECTROMAGNETIC THEORY PUBLISHED BETWEEN 1855 AND 1868.WITH AN EXTRAORDINARY PROVENANCE: THIS COPY FROM THE ESTEEMED CAVENDISH LABORATORY, FOUNDED IN 1874 WITH MAXWELL AS ITS FIRST DIRECTOR. In "On a Method of Making a Direct Comparison of Electrostatic with Electromagnetic Force", Maxwell finally gives experimental proof that light consists of electromagnetic waves, which he had postulated in his fourth paper, the epoch-making "A dynamical theory of the electromagnetic field" (1865). "[Michael] Faraday (1791-1867) had abandoned the notion of 'action at a distance' for the concept of the 'fields of force' surrounding bodies by which they act upon one another electromagnetically ... Clerk Maxwell (1831-79), who may well be judged the greatest theoretical physicist of the nineteenth century, was happy to acknowledge his debt to Faraday; for what he did was to construct the mathematical theory of the field ... the developed field-theory, expressed in twenty equations, was purely and elegantly mathematical" (PMM 355).In the "Note on the Electromagnetic Theory of Light" [the second paper included here], Maxwell greatly simplifies the 20 equations from the 1865 paper, into four theorems, roughly equivalent to the four fundamental Maxwell equations we know today: "When in 1868 Maxwell published the results of his new measurement of the ratio c of the electromagnetic to the electrostat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marshall, J. U.
Jos. Walker, Charleston, 1868. 12mo, pp. 24; a poem in iambic pentameter consisting of 110 stanzas, broadly based around the impeachment of Andrew Johnson and resentment towards the North and reconstruction. Original printed paper wrappers, light chipping to corners and extremities, spine repaired with paper tape, light spotting, very good. While the focus of the poem appears to be Johnson's impeachment, Marshall takes the opportunity to cover a number of popular complaints by the South during reconstruction. Interspersed with lamentation over the fallen fortunes of the Confederates are invectives against many Northern politicians, including Radical Republicans Thaddeus Stevens and Benjamin Wade, who are described as being damned by sin, and William Gannaway Brownlow, who's efforts to enfranchise black citizens are referenced with the following stanzas: "Freed 'manhood' has its chartered rights, / and who shall question, should it dare, / In scorn of work, to pillage whites? . Like parson Brownlow, in a godly rage, / Have they not sworn eternal war to wage?" Also in the cross-hairs are Grant, and Benjamin Butler, referred here by the Southern moniker Haynau Butler. Washington bureaucracy is targeted generally, along with rapacious Northern opportunists, who are bringing only criminals "W---res" and the like down to take advantage of the chaos. "Oh they are legion! in our streets / Their glibness we have heard disclose / Of liberty the varied sweets. / Their wealth, indeed, one hardly knows -- / A box of collars, spangled with fly dirt, / A carpet bag, two dickies, and a shi … [Click Below for Full Description]

Ernst Haeckel
Ernst Haeckel. Natürliche Schöpfungsgeschichte. Berlin 1868 verlag von Georg Reimer. First Edition. Octavo, [16], 568 pages, plus lithograph frontispiece depicting the evolution of man, one plate inserted at page 240, and eight folding plates at the end of the text. Contemporary patterned boards; spine leather partially scraped off with some gilt, including gilt label, remaining. Both boards re-attached. Marbled edges, generally sound internally. Haeckel was a zoologist who discovered and named thousands of species. He was an advocate of Darwinian evolutionary ideas, tempered with some Lamarckian notions about transmitted acquired traits. He coined the terms ecology and phylum, as well as the principle ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny. He was especially interested in the possibility of reconstructing evolutionary history, hence the many trees in the plates. His theoretical work was often longer on speculation than on evidence. This work was translated into English as The History of Creation in 1876 and re-printed many timesGarrison-Morton 224. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Original publisher's brown cloth, spine lettered in gilt, from and rear boards blind-stamped with border lines and with beveled edges, thick lg 8vo. This is the rare 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 Siwalik fossil mammals earned him and 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, the 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. 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 … [Click Below for Full Description]

TROLLOPE, Anthony, editor and author
Virtue & Co, 1868. Near Fine. Hardcover. First edition. Octavo. 322pp. Publisher's pebble-grained green cloth with blind-stamped rule on boards and gilt titles and decorations. Primrose yellow endpapers with Virtue & Co.'s paper label on rear pastedown. Cloth a trifle rubbed with a few small nicks and stains, inner front hinge a little tender, and the first gathering a little sprung, but a bright very good or better copy. Comprised of eight essays: "On Horse Racing" and "On Shooting" by Hon. Francis Lawley; "On Hunting" by Trollope; "On Fishing" by Dr. Bertram; "On Yachting" by Edward Pigott; "On Rowing" and "On Alpine Climbing" by Leslie Stephen (father of Virginia Woolf); and "On Cricket" by Charles Mereweather (the authors are not stated but have been added in pencil to the Contents page, corresponding to *Sadleir*, p218). Inscribed by Trollope in black ink on the half title "M.C. Maxwell from Anthony Trollope," to which is added in pencil (likely by Trollope) "his would be colleague." When Trollope ran for the Beverley seat in Parliament in 1868 his Liberal running-mate was Marmaduke Constable Maxwell, son and heir of Lord Herries; Trollope visited the town to canvass "and spent, I think, the most wretched fortnight of my manhood" (Glendinning, p389). He ended bottom of the poll having found canvassing "absolute hell," and thus ended his foray into active politics. A nice Inscribed copy by a major English author with an interesting association.
