1869. Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. The first edition of these lovely rebound annual reports from the Aeronautical Society of Great Britain, from the years 1869-71, ad 1879-81. The first edition of these works. In two volumes. This work is an octavo. A collection of six annual reports from the Aeronautical Society of Great Britain, now renamed the Royal Aeronautical Society, or RAeS. The first volume contains the fourth, fifth, and sixth annual reports, published in the years 1869, 1870, and 1871. The second volume contains the fourteenth, fifteenth, and sixteenth annual reports, published in the years 1879, 1880, and 1881. These reports show the efforts of the Society to investigate and research the possibility of engineering a method of flying, to produce a flying machine. The reports were published in the years leading up to the first successful flight in 1903. In these reports you can see their scientific and mathematical efforts. The RAeS is dedicated to the global aerospace community, and is the oldest aeronautical society in the world. At the time these were published, the Society had at least 106 members, with the membership rising considerably each year. In the years 1870-71, they sponsored the first wind tunnel which was designed by the members Wenham and Browning. Some of the members contributing to the discourse transcribed in these reports include James Glaisher, Francis Wenham, George Campbell the Duke of Argyll, and Frederick Brearey.

New York: Harper. Ebay title: Antique 1869 China and the Chinese Nevius Bible Missionary Leather bound book Nevius was an American missionary in China, and was involved with numerous Bible translation projects, including the Delegates' Version, Peking Version, and then later the famous Union Versions (i.e. in Mandarin, literary Chinese and classical Chinese). Original 1869 edition (first edition). Absolutely gorgeous. I had it professionally rebound and restored in 1995. Believe it or not, I paid almost $200 (not including tax) back in 1995 just to have it re-rebound, restored, and all pages neutralized (i.e. acid on paper had been removed/neutralized). Paper were neutralized by a conservationist, using quality alkaline reserve to prevent further foxing. It has a pull-out map, and illustrations throughout. Handsomely restored and rebound, all pages neutralized by a professional conservationist in 1995. Sold to a collector only. You will not find another copy in such shape and condition. There are some foxing throughout, because it was printed on acidic paper, and the paper is old. As noted, paper were neutralized by a conservationist, using quality alkaline reserve to prevent further foxing. The pull-out map has 2 small rips, each about 1 centimeter long, and foxing as shown. Apart from foxing, text is clean and free from writing or marking. Ideal for a present. One of a kind after its make-over (i.e. professionally restored and rebound, and all pages neutralized from its acid content which caused foxing).

Alcott, Louisa M.
Roberts Brothers, Boston. Mixed state of the 1869 edition, this volume does NOT state "Part One" to spine (where the gilt titles are strong), but DOES state at bottom of final page of text (that being pg. 341): "End of Part First. / Part Second, completing 'Little Women,' is published in a volume to match this." The text followed by 10 pp. publisher's ads, with the advertisement for this title appearing on the seventh (not the third) of those pages, being the advertising page mis-numbered 17 (not 11), this title there listed first under "Juveniles" and priced $1.50. (The advertising pages at the back of true first printings list this title at $1.25.) Lovely original chocolate brown endpapers; the front hinge opening but still holding strong. The frontispiece remains tissue-protected, and the internal plates at pp. 135 and 320 are firmly attached. HOWEVER, the third internal plate, which is supposed to face pg. 116, is missing. We can see the glue residue where it was once tipped in, but this plate (of the original four) is MISSING. Book would otherwise grade "good-plus," with the board corners showing considerable rub.

History: The University of Deseret intended to publish the Book of Mormon in three separate parts for the use of school children and incoming immigrants. Only part one was ever printed. "[Brigham] Young therefore directed George D. Watt, an Englishman, and an early Mormon convert, to create a new alphabet based on English language phonic values. Watt may have been Young's personal secretary. What is certain is that he was an expert in the then-new and very popular Pitman system of shorthand. The alphabet assignment was handed to Watt in 1853, and by the following year he was able to lay before Young a 32 - character system (eventually increased to 38)" - Wentz, Roby 'Thirty-Eight Mormon Characters' p.12 1868 Deseret First Book - Reader 1 The Deseret furst bok by the Regents of the Yionivursiti.

LABOR - MASSACHUSETTS] AMALGAMATED SHORT TIME COMMITTEE
Amalgamated Short Time Committee, 1869. First Edition. Small petition addressed to the factory workers of Lawrence: "We, The Amalgamated Short Time Committee, most respectfully call upon you to take up a Collection on the forthcoming Pay Day, to defray the expenses of a Public Meetingm and send the same to the committee room..." The Committee, based on the English organization of the same name, was lead by the English-born woolen mill hand-turned-labor leader Robert Bower, who would appear on the 1869 Labor Reform Party ticket for the Massachusetts legislation, together with Lawrence native T.C. Constantine, in a bid for a 10-hour workday.

RUSSELL, ANDREW J
New York: [by D. H. Prime] Published by Authority of the Union Pacific Railroad Company, 1869. First edition. One of the monuments of American photography, and Russell s masterpiece, The Great West documents the construction of the Union Pacific Railroad and the land through which it ran. The 50 splendid large format albumen photographs depict scenes along the railroad, which ran from Omaha, through Wyoming and Utah, and ended in Sacramento. The photographs, organized geographically from east to west, depict canyons, mountains, rock formations, cuts along the railroad, rivers, towns, locomotives, trains, and bridges, as well as several group portraits. In his preface, Russell states that he was fully convinced that the most comprehensive manner in which a positive and substantial knowledge could be offered on a subject which heretofore has given data only vague and insignificant, was in presenting to the public a series of photographic views across the continent. The photographs were made and published in an effort to promote both westward expansion and the building of the railroad. With this volume Russell shows the inextricable links between photography, the westward progress of American civilization, and engineering technology. Much as photographs by the Hubble Space Telescope fascinate us today, Russell s images of the extraordinary achievement of spanning the West by rail captured the interest and imagination of citizens across the country (Beinecke Library). During the Civil War, Russell served as photographer for the United States Military Railroad. When the war ende … [Click Below for Full Description]

THACKERAY, William Makepeace
Smith, Elder & Co, 1869. Hardcover. Octavo, 22 volumes. A nice, elegant, very good or better set bound by Mansell ("successor to Hayday") in full tree calf with elaborate gilt spines, raised bands, morocco spine labels, all edges gilt, and marbled endpapers. Top quarter of the front outer joint of vol XVI is split, though the structure remains sound, and the front board of vol XXII has been professionally re-attached. Some spine ends chipped, but nothing dramatic. Some of the extremities of some volumes are a tinge dried out. Stunningly bright gilt spines. Internally lovely, with very next to none of the usual foxing. Handsome. Very good +.

MANZONI ALESSANDRO
Milano, Stabilimento Redaelli dei fratelli Richiedei, 1869. Cm. 25, pp. 1031 (1). Un ritratto di Manzoni a piena pagina, centinaia di incisioni xilografiche n.t., quasi tutte riproducenti quelle del Gonin per la Quarantana, ma con l'aggiunta di 4 tavole realizzate ex-novo da Tranquillo Cremona e 4 da Borgomainerio. Testo inquadrato da duplice filetto. Legatura coeva in mezza pelle rossa con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso. Ben conservato. Segue (con la medesima legatura): MANZONI ALESSANDRO. Opere varie. Edizione riveduta dall'Autore. Milano, Stabilimento Redaelli dei fratelli Richiedei, 1870. Cm. 25, pp. 955 (1). Con 10 splendide illustrazioni xilografiche incise da Ratti sui disegni di Focosi, bellissime testatine e capilettera illustrano gli Inni sacri, testo inquadrato da duplice filetto. Legatura coeva in mezza pelle rossa con titoli e filetti in oro al dorso. Ben conservato. Prima opera: Terza edizione illustrata (malgrado l'erronea dicitura di "seconda edizione illustrata"), dopo la celebre Quarantana e la reimpressione del 1844 uscite dai medesimi torchi. Così Parenti (Rarità bibliografiche dell'Ottocento, I, 276) a proposito della vicenda tipografica di questa edizione: "Malgrado lo stato deplorevole delle illustrazioni del 1840, gli editori si sono serviti, per la massima parte, di queste. Poichè la frequenza delle illustrazioni non poteva consentirne la totale soppressione, gli editori si videro costretti a sostituire, almeno in parte, quelle inservibili. E l'incarico fu affidato a due giovani che dovevano, in seguito, se pur per merito e per strade div … [Click Below for Full Description]

PINEL, Honoré
Paris: Librairie Ducrocq, 1869. Practical Knowledge of the Horse With Seventy-Two Colored Lithograph Plates on all Aspects of the Horse PINEL, Honoré. ABC du Sportsman Robes et Marques; Conformations, Tares, Vices Rédhibitoires; [&] LesRaces. Paris: Librairie Ducrocq, 1869. Large octavo (9 1/4 x 6 7/8 inches; 236 x 175 mm.). [48], [52], [52] pp. Three parts in one volume: Robes et Marques (Dresses and Brands) ; Conformations, Tares, Viceste LesRaces. Seventy-two colored lithograph plates - each part with twenty-four plates. First title-page slightly browned, otherwise a near fine copy. Publisher's red cloth over boards, covers decoratively bordered in black, front cover lettered in gilt. The author states that the alphabetic form which he has adopted has a twofold aim: 1. To facilitate the child's study of the horse, because the dictionary form is more favorable for those whose attention span is quickly tired, or those who can only study at intervals. 2. To offer to the amateur an explanatory lexicon of the usual words used by the horseman. Three parts in one volume, each in the form of an ABC. The first devoted to 'Dresses and brands', the second to 'conformations, flaws, and injuries', and the the third on 'The races'. Text on the left page, and color lithographed illustration on the right page. Apparently a fairly scarce little book with just a handful of copies located in libraries and institutions worldwide including The Bibliotheque Nationale de France; The Morgan Library (NY); Yale University Library (CT) and Texas A. & M. University (TX). Huth, Works on Horses and E … [Click Below for Full Description]
