        Sula Australis [Australian Gannet]

      by the Author, [London 1869 - A fine image from John Gould's major ornithological achievement 'The Birds of Australia'. John Gould, accompanied by his wife Elizabeth, left Britain for Australia in May 1838 for what was to be a two year exploration of the birds and animals of the region. The natural history of the continent had not been studied in any detail before Gould's arrival and the abundant and highly varied bird life was to prove an inspiration to him, and between 1840 and 1869 he published what is his undoubted masterpiece: "The Birds of Australia". Gould wrote of his time in Australia 'The interval spent from my native shores were some of the happiest days of my life. The results of my journey cannot, I think, but be attended with great advantage to science. Independently of a great new number of Birds I succeeded in procuring the nests and eggs of at least two thirds of the species inhabiting that interesting region'. Contemporary praise for the work was fulsome: 'Great as is the excellence of Mr. Gould's former publications, there can be no doubt that the present work exceeds them all, both from an artistic and a scientific point of view'. One hundred and fifty years later there is no need to alter this sentiment. Cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p.102; cf. Nissen IVB 370; cf. Sauer 9 & 18; cf. Zimmer p.255 & 259. Hand-coloured lithograph by J. Gould and H.C.Richter, printed by Hullmandel & Walton. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling, minor foxing, and two skillfully repaired small tears in the top margin.

        Marbled Podargus (Podargus Marmoratus)

      London: The Author, 1869. Hand-coloured lithograph (540 x 355 mm.), with letter-press text; very good. An attractive image of the marbled frogmouth found in the Cape York Peninsula, specimens were supplied to Gould by MacGillivray in 1849 when he was in North East Australia. This is an original hand coloured lithographic plate from the Supplement of Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia, The Supplement of 81 birds was added between 1851 and 1869. Only 250 sets were produced of Birds of Australia, and are still considered today as one of Gould's most successful projects and a foundation stone of Australian ornithology.

        Original print, depicting the double-helix structure of DNA, signed by Watson and Crick

      An attractive print memorializing Watson and Crick’s discovery of the double-helix; considered the most significant single contribution to biology and medicine in the twentieth century. DNA was first isolated by the Swiss physician Friedrich Miescher in 1869, and over the succeeding years many researchers investigated its structure and function, with some arguing that it may be involved in genetic inheritance. By the early 1950s this had become one of the most important questions in biology. Maurice Wilkins of King’s College London and his colleague Rosalind Franklin were both working on DNA, with Franklin producing X-ray diffraction images of its structure. Wilkins also introduced his friend Francis Crick to the subject, and Crick and his partner James Watson began their own investigation at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge, focusing on building molecular models. After one failed attempt in which they postulated a triple-helix structure, they were banned by the Cavendish from spending any additional time on the subject. But a year later, after seeing new X-ray diffraction images taken by Franklin (notably the famous ‘Photo 51’), they resumed their work and soon announced that not only had they discovered the double-helix structure of DNA, but even more importantly, that “the specific pairing we have postulated immediately suggests a possible copying mechanism for the genetic material.” 280 x 216 mm, black and white print on laid paper with watermark, depicting the double-helix structure of DNA, captioned “In fact, the two DNA strands are twisted around each other to make a double helix.” Crick signature in black pen, Watson in blue ballpoint pen.

        Banded Honey-eater (Myzomela Pectoralis)

      The Author 1840-, London 1869 - Hand-coloured lithograph (540 x 355 mm.), with letter-press text; very good. The banded Honey-eater was bought to Gould's attention by Mr Benjamin Bynoe, Surgeon of the Beagle, who collected the specimen whilst on the northern coast. An interesting bird and further testament to Gould's statement that the northern coast of Australia possesses a fauna peculiar to itself. This is an original hand coloured lithographic plate from Gould's most famous work, Birds of Australia. Birds of Australia is a great tribute to Australia and was one of Gould's most successful projects. 'Only 250 copies have been printed, and the drawings have been effaced from stones; of these, 180 were subscribed for, the remaining seventy the author proposes to issue upon the original terms, with the exception, that five or more parts shall be delivered in the course of each year instead of four; the delivery to commence on the 1st of January 1849' (Prospectus).

        Ueber die Beziehungen der Eigenschaften zu den Atomgewichten der Elemente [On the Relation of the Properties to the Atomic Weights of the Elements]

      Leipzig: Zeitschrift f?hemie; Quandt and Handel. Leipzig: Zeitschrift für Chemie; Quandt and Handel. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. THE PERIODIC TABLE: Likely the first appearance of Mendeleev's periodic table in a Western journal. Although priority has not been established between this Zeitschrift für Chemie appearance and the Journal für praktische Chemie appearance, it was clearly the more complete 1869 Zeitschrift appearance that was the most influential. "In 1868 Mendeleev began writing his famous textbook, Principles of Chemistry. As he later related, it was while exploring various alternative organizational schemes for this book that he hit upon the periodic law. While waiting for the book to appear in print (the first edition was published in installments between 1868 and 1871), Mendeleev produced a single-page flier summarizing his new organizational scheme entitled An Attempted System of the Elements Based on their Atomic Weights and Chemical Analogies, which he circulated among Russian chemists in early 1869. In March of that year he presented a more detailed paper to the newly founded Russian Chemical Society entitled 'On the Correlation Between the Properties of the Elements and their Atomic Weights'. This, in turn, was published in the first volume of the society's new journal." This paper, however, "was not translated from Russian until 1895 and consequently played little or no role in initially acquainting American, British and western European chemists with the periodic law. This role was played instead by two short German abstracts of the paper, one of which appeared in the Journal für praktische Chemie and the other in the Zeitschrift für Chemie... The first reproduced only Mendeleev's table, without any commentary or explanation... To the best of our knowledge, only the longer abstract in the Zeitschrift für Chemie had a significant impact, as it was the reading of this abstract that stimulated the German chemist, Lothar Meyer, to publish his own thoughts on the periodic law in late 1870 and which ultimately gave rise to a vigorous priority debate" (William B. Jensen, Mendeleev on the Periodic Law). IN: Zeitschrift für Chemie, Vol 12 (1869), pp.405-406. Leipzig: Quandt & Handel, 1869. Octavo, modern three-quarter calf. Whole volume (p.1-766) offered. Bound without general title. With a rear yellow wrapper bound-in. Marginal repair to last leaf of index; one index leaf with corner tear; a few leaves toward the rear with repaired corners (not affecting text). Mendeleev paper fine. Beautifully bound. RARE.

Uniform with His Collected Works. London: Chapman and Hall, 1869-1874. Library Edition. Thirty-four octavo volumes (8 1/8 x 5 1/4 in; 207 x 133 mm). Engraved frontispieces and plates. Uniformly bound by Morrell ca. 1930 in three-quarter crushed brown levant morocco over brown cloth ruled in gilt. Spines with five raised bands, decoratively gilt lettered and tooled in compartments. Two volumes professionally repaired at top of spines. A near fine set.The Library edition, originally issued in 30 volumes 1869-71, with three additional volumes (translations from the German) added in 1871 and also a thirty-fourth volume as General Index . The most lavish edition published within Carlyle's lifetime, the Library Edition sold for 6 to 9 shillings per volume (or £15 the set)."In literature [Carlyle] was the pioneer who explored and made known the work of modern Germany. His literary judgments were penetrating, and (when he had a congenial subject) just; and on men like Voltaire, Burns, and Johnson he gave verdicts that approached finality. At a historian he is in the highest rank. Bating certain unimportant errors of detail, he illumined the past with astonishing insight and made his personages actual and his scenes dramatic. His style is an extraordinary farrago, leaping not flowing, coining strange words and performing extravagant evolutions; yet cumulatively it impresses as a great style, suffused with humor, irony, and passion; impossible to imitate, utterly personal, burning, and convincing."'Carlyle's genius,' wrote Hector Macpherson, 'was many-sided. He touched and ennobled the national life at all points. He lifted a whole generation of young men out of the stagnating atmosphere of materialism and dead orthodoxy into the region of the ideal. With the Master of Balliol, we believe that 'no English writer has done more to elevate and purify our ideas of life and to make us conscious that the things of the spirit are real, and that in the last resort there is no other reality'" (British Authors of the Nineteenth Century, pp. 115-118).The London bindery of W. T. Morrell was established c. 1861 as successor to the firm begun by Francis Bedford, who, in turn, had assumed control of the esteemed bindery of Charles Lewis. Sarah T. Prideaux, in "Modern Bookbindings," states that Morrell had a very large business that supplied "all the booksellers with bindings designed by his men," bindings that were "remarkable for their variety and merit."

Travel narrative on the coastal regions of Central and Northeast Brasil by one of history's greatest travelers.

Quoting the Preliminary Essay, p. 10: ". . .I have purposely used the work 'sketching.' My journey covered more than 2000 miles, of which 1150 miles in round numbers were by the slow progress of a raft. The time occupied was only five months, between June 12 and November 12 of 1867: as many years might most profitably be devoted to the Rio S?o Francisco alone, and even then it would be difficult to produce of it an exhaustive description. I have, however, been careful to collect for future travellers, who shall be masters of more time than my profession allowed me, hearsay accounts of the interesting natural features, the geological remains, and the rock-inscriptions hitherto unworked.

        Brigadier-General Thomas Francis Meagher: His Political and Military Career

      Glasgow,: Cameron & Ferguson, circa, 1869.. Glasgow,: Cameron & Ferguson, circa, 1869.. Small octavo, fine in recent cloth with the publisher's green illustrated wrappers and advertisements bound in. Scarce biography of Irish nationalist Thomas Meagher (1823-1867), transported to Van Diemen's Land for his role in the Young Ireland movement of 1848.Renowned for his personal charisma and powerful oratory, Meagher was born into a prosperous family and enjoyed a successful political career. In 1848 he was charged with leading the Young Ireland movement and inciting rebellion, a capital conviction transmuted to transportation for life. He arrived in Hobart in October 1849, where he quickly married and obtained a ticket-of-leave, only to escape the colony within a matter of years (arriving in New York in May of 1852). His time in Australia and subsequent escape is detailed in a chapter of this book.As a citizen of the United States, Meagher is best remembered as a Union officer in command of an Irish brigade, and as sometime Governor of Montana. He drowned in the Missouri River in 1867, and was quickly immortalised as a paradigm Irish patriot in biographies such as this one.Ferguson, 11796.

        New Topographical Map of the State of New York Made from Official Records and Actual Surveys.

      New York: Asher & Adams, [1869]. - 4to., (14 ¾ x 12 ½ inches). 18 color-printed lithographed maps finished by hand (a few short repaired tears to margins not affecting images). Library binding (call number blacked out on spine). Provenance: Local ownership inscription dated 1944. First edition. Includes beautifully colored maps of all New York counties, City of Brooklyn, Long Island City, City of New York, and Rail Road, Geological, and Meteorological maps of New York, with New York City Business Directory at the end. Asher & Adams was a New York-based mapmaking firm active in the 1860s and 1870s, known for their exceptionally detailed state and county atlases, the most important of which is "Asher & Adams Commercial and Statistical Gazetteer of the United States (1874). This atlas is notable because it is one of the first 19th-century atlases to remove topographical information in favor of detailed depictions of railroads. This book of maps of New York was published 1869, just on the heels of the Civil War, and the entire nation faced the daunting task of reconstruction. It was also an opportunity: old infrastructure was replaced with new technology, and the United States were connected in ways they never were before. By 1866, Western Union's network included about 100,000 miles of wire, and the first transcontinental railroad was completed in 1869. In New York City, the 1860s meant the advent of the skyscraper era, beginning with the construction of the Equitable Building, which broke ground in 1868 and was finished in 1870. New York was emerging as the nation's center of industry and finance, growing rapidly with the influx of European immigrants. Much of the island of Manhattan was still largely undeveloped, particularly from Central Park northward, and the growing population and demand for housing spurred development and expansion of the city. These maps portray a very exciting and dynamic period in New York history, which is evident in their level of detail. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Thomas Carlyle's Collected Works

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1869. - The Many Writings ofA Many-Sided GeniusCARLYLE, Thomas. Thomas Carlyle's Collected Works. [With] Translations From the German by Thomas Carlyle. Uniform with His Collected Works. London: Chapman and Hall, 1869-1874. Library Edition. Thirty-four octavo volumes (8 1/8 x 5 1/4 in; 207 x 133 mm). Engraved frontispieces and plates. Uniformly bound by Morrell ca. 1930 in three-quarter crushed brown levant morocco over brown cloth ruled in gilt. Spines with five raised bands, decoratively gilt lettered and tooled in compartments. Two volumes professionally repaired at top of spines. A near fine set.The Library edition, originally issued in 30 volumes 1869-71, with three additional volumes (translations from the German) added in 1871 and also a thirty-fourth volume as General Index . The most lavish edition published within Carlyle's lifetime, the Library Edition sold for 6 to 9 shillings per volume (or £15 the set)."In literature [Carlyle] was the pioneer who explored and made known the work of modern Germany. His literary judgments were penetrating, and (when he had a congenial subject) just; and on men like Voltaire, Burns, and Johnson he gave verdicts that approached finality. At a historian he is in the highest rank. Bating certain unimportant errors of detail, he illumined the past with astonishing insight and made his personages actual and his scenes dramatic. His style is an extraordinary farrago, leaping not flowing, coining strange words and performing extravagant evolutions; yet cumulatively it impresses as a great style, suffused with humor, irony, and passion; impossible to imitate, utterly personal, burning, and convincing."'Carlyle's genius,' wrote Hector Macpherson, 'was many-sided. He touched and ennobled the national life at all points. He lifted a whole generation of young men out of the stagnating atmosphere of materialism and dead orthodoxy into the region of the ideal. With the Master of Balliol, we believe that 'no English writer has done more to elevate and purify our ideas of life and to make us conscious that the things of the spirit are real, and that in the last resort there is no other reality'" (British Authors of the Nineteenth Century, pp. 115-118).The London bindery of W. T. Morrell was established c. 1861 as successor to the firm begun by Francis Bedford, who, in turn, had assumed control of the esteemed bindery of Charles Lewis. Sarah T. Prideaux, in "Modern Bookbindings," states that Morrell had a very large business that supplied "all the booksellers with bindings designed by his men," bindings that were "remarkable for their variety and merit."
