        The History of England.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co.,, 1869–1871. From the accession of James the Second. 8 volumes, octavo (170 x 115 mm). Contemporary red calf, green labels lettered in gilt to spines, gilt decorations to spines in compartments, gilt frames to covers, marbled endpapers and edges. Minor rubbing to extremities, spines uniformly a little faded, top edges dust toned, a couple of small scratches to covers, tiny abrasion to front cover of vol. VI; an excellent set. An attractively bound set of Macaulay's history. "The first historical work deliberately designed to outsell the best-selling novel of the day, Macaulay's book immediately fulfilled its author's aspiration. His colourful style and stirring power of description secured for the History a success such as no historical work in the English language had had since Gibbon. Each volume sold about one hundred and fifty thousands copies within a month of its publication, and the numerous reprints and translations into almost every literary language have perpetuated Macaulay's ideas almost to this day" (PMM 328).

        American Journal of Numismatics 1866-1924 complete

      Boston & New York - Volumes 1-53 complete, bound in twenty-six, first 20 in contemporary (i.e. c1910) brown cloth, gilt spines, balance in recent brown cloth, green spine labels, all bindings sound and strong. A fine set. (Only several volumes of each binding are shown in the photo) Davis 21. No periodical or other body of work is as important to our understanding of American numismatics, especially during the second half of the nineteenth century. The original works by Crosby, his 1869 The United States Cents of 1793 (here with the first printing of the photographic plate), and extracts from The Early Coins of America, initially appeared in the Journal, as did Marvin¿s Masonic Medals, Low¿s Hard Times Tokens, Edgar Adams¿ The Private Gold Coinage of California, and Miller & Ryder¿s State Coinage of New England. Initiated by the A.N.A.S. as a monthly periodical that would incorporate the society¿s proceedings, the uncertain future faced by that organization forced control to be passed to the Boston Numismatic Society in 1870. Designed to be an annual rotation with publishing responsibilities shared among the various societies, the Journal remained in Boston for 38 years as a quarterly. In 1893 all rights were acquired by W. T. R. Marvin, who continued to edit and publish the work until 1908 when it was sold back to the A.N.S. During its Boston years, under the guidance of Colburn, Appleton, and Marvin, the Journal recorded for posterity American numismatic history in the form of society minutes, auction notices and results, book reviews, quips, barbs and bantering, as well as erudite original papers. When control returned to New York, an era had passed, and the Journal was well on its way to becoming a forum for monographs, largely on classical works, only. Concerns by authors, however, that their works would not receive critical attention if they shared covers with papers on other subjects led to its discontinuance, and the institution of the Numismatic Notes and Monographs series.

        Sulle cellule globulifere del midollo delle ossa. Nota del Dott. G. Bizzozero.

      Gazetta Medica Italiana - Lombario, N.24, anno 1869, 8, (3, (1) pp. mit Stempel von Prof. Dr. Alexander Rollett". Extrem rare offprint! "In una comunicazione preventiva del Prof. E. Neumann pubblicata nel 'Centralblatt f. med. Wissensch. Del 17 aprilee risguardante alcune alterazioni patologiche del midollo si contengono le seguenti linee. 'La formazione nel midollo di cellule che contengono glubluli rossi non è (contro la opinione di Bizzozero) .""Haematopoiesis in the bone marrow. Before his graduation, Bizzozero began to investigate the histology of bone marrow. At that time, there were two main views on the functions of this tissue, which dated back to the ancient time of Hippocrates and Aristotle. According to these views, the bone marrow either constituted an 'excrement' of the bone (excrementum ossium), or, on the contrary, it represented its nutritional 'matrix'. Bizzozero discovered a particular kind of nucleated red cell in this tissue, and he considered these cells to be the precursors of the mature red cells of the circulating blood. Moreover, he realized that bone marrow is the site of production of white blood cells and also exerts a role, like the spleen, in the destruction of old cellular elements. Bizzozero's conclusions were confirmed by experiments of bleeding under controlled conditions, carried out on chickens and pigeons, which amplified the blood-cell-forming phenomenon in bone marrow.The finding that bone marrow was able to produce blood was also made at the same time by the Prussian haematologist Ernst Neumann, a professor at the University of Königsberg, who published part of his results in 1868, a month before the Italian researcher."

The Novara Expedition (1857?1859) was the first large-scale scientific, around-the-world mission of the Austrian Imperial navy. In April 1864, SMS Novara had the important task of carrying Archduke Maximilian and his wife Charlotte to Veracruz, in the Americas, for their establishment as the new Emperor and Empress of Mexico during the Second Mexican Empire. Novara arrived at Veracruz, Mexico on 28 May 1864. SMS Novara saw active service during the Battle of Lissa which took place on 20 July 1866 in the Adriatic Sea near the island of Vis (Italian: Lissa). SMS Novara belonged to Admiral Wilhelm von Tegetthoff's 2nd Division, commanded by Baron Anton von Petz, which consisted mainly of wooden steam warships. 'Novara's commander, Erik af Klint, was killed in the engagement. The battle was a decisive victory for an outnumbered Austrian Empire force over a superior Italian force. It was the first major sea battle between ironclads and one of the last to involve deliberate ramming. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Substitution of Similars, The True Principle of Reasoning, Derived from a Modification of Aristotle's Dictum.

      London: Macmillan and Co,, 1869. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt, boards ruled in blind, red sprinkled edges. Diagram frontispiece. Ownership inscription of American lawyer and politician William Travers Jerome dated 24 May 1882 to front free endpaper. Spine faded, extremities worn, corners bumped, lower front board creased and a few marks to rear board, hinges cracked but firm, endpapers lightly foxed, a very good copy. First edition of the economist, logician, and philosopher's most popular and accessible work. "At the end of 1866 Jevons had begun 'thinking about logic again seriously' and considered grafting some developments on to the modified version of Boole's system that he had published in 1863. In the next two months the idea that 'the great and universal principle of all reasoning' was the substitution of similars became central to his thinking. With this in mind he decided to 'produce a work which will not only embody a new and luminous system but will be readable and read by many' (Papers, 1.209–10) ... in 1869 he published The Substitution of Similars, a short work presenting the essence of his system of logic as he now saw it 'to the judgement of those interested in logical science'" (ODNB).

        Ten'ichibo and Ooka Echizen no Kami

      Edo, Japan This work is a beautiful yakusha-e (kabuki actors' print) triptych. The instant print groups four actors on a total of three sheets. Artist: Morikawa Chikashige (fl. 1869-1882). Title: Ten'ichibo and Ooka Echizen no kami, The Judgment of Ten'ichibo by magistrate Ooka, governor of Echizen. Publ.: Not deciphered but name/address of artist and of publisher believed listed in left-hand panel. Date: Meiji. Believed to be Meiji 6/1873, but possibly later. Almost certainly an early pull of the first edition. Size: (HxW) 14.75" x 9.8" (each of 3 pieces) of triptych. Oban tate-e. Signature: Ichikawa Chikashige hitsu, with toshidama seal. Condition: Near Fine impression and state. No creasing observed. Immensely clean, front and back, save for occasional very small color blotches, quite minor. Sharp, occasionally broken key block lines and with well-registered colors. Vibrant aniline dye colors, slight color transfer. As to color choices, green, red, blue and yellow-ochre dominating. It is said of Chikashige's contemporary Kunichika, "In some works from this period [1870s] Kunichika used the aniline dyes identified with the 'era of civilization and enlightenment' as a wash for the entire background plane," and that is the case here, with red and green, in this particular triptych by Chikashige. Untrimmed top and left margins. Virtually no soiling. Unbacked. Over all a Very Good Plus triptych. Comments: The character of Ten'ichibo dominating the lower center of the triptych and with magistrate Ooka dominating the right panel. With the actors striking vivid mie or poses. From the earlier legends regarding Ooka Echizen and from the play Ten'ichibo Ooka seidan (Magistrate Ooka and the case of Ten'ichibo) by the kabuki playwright Kawatake Mokuami (1816-1893). With the title Echizen no Kami (Governor of Echizen or Lord of the Echizen), he is often known as Ooka Echizen. He was highly respected as an incorruptible judge. Ten'ichibo, for his part, was variously treated by legend as a charlatan and a rogue or, contrariwise, as a sincere if naïve young man.. Presumed First Edition. Very Good Plus. Illus. by Chikashige. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.
