        The Life and Letters of Frederick William Faber

      London - Thomas Richardson & Son, 1869. London - Thomas Richardson & Son, 1869 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. Leather bound volume with gilt detailing to the spine and marbled foredge. Frederick William Faber (June 28, 1814 - September 26, 1863), British hymn writer and theologian, was born at Calverley, Yorkshire, where his grandfather, Thomas Faber, was vicar. Faber attended the grammar school of Bishop Auckland for a short time, but a large portion of his boyhood was spent in Westmorland. He afterwards went to Harrow and Balliol College, Oxford. In 1835, he obtained a scholarship at University College. In 1836, he won the Newdigate Prize for a poem on The Knights of St John, which elicited special praise from Keble. In January 1837, he was elected fellow of National Scholars Foundation. Meanwhile, he had given up the Calvinistic views of his youth, and had become an enthusiastic follower of John Henry Newman. In 1841, a travelling tutorship took him to the continent; on his return, he published a book called Sights and Thoughts in Foreign Churches and among Foreign Peoples (London, 1842), with a dedication to his friend the poet Wordsworth. He accepted the rectory of Elton in Huntingdonshire, but soon after went again to the continent, in order to study the methods of the Roman Catholic Church. After a prolonged mental struggle, he joined the Catholic Church in November 1845. He founded a religious community at Cotton Hall, also known as St Wilfrid's, in the Archdiocese of Birmingham, called Wilfridians (which ultimately merged in the Oratory of St Philip Neri, with John Henry Newman as Superior). In 1849, a branch of the oratorysubsequently independentwas established in London, first in King William Street, and afterwards at Brompton (Brompton Oratory), over which Faber presided until his death. In spite of his weak health, an almost incredible amount of work was crowded into those years. He published a number of theological works, and edited the Oratorian Lives of the Saints. He was an eloquent preacher, and a man of great charm of character. It is mainly as a hymn-writer, however, that Faber is remembered. Condition: The binding is tight and firm with all pages securely attached. There is some wear to the extremities including some rubbing to the leather and bumping to the corners. Internally the pages are clean and bright with spotting to some pages and the occasional handling mark. Overall the volume is in very good condition..

After two years back in Britain during which Petherick married his wife Katherine (1827-77), the couple returned to Sudan in 1861. Petherick assumed the role of British consul in Khartoum and was entrusted by the Royal Geographic Society to assist J. H. Speke and James Grant on their return trip from their search for the source of the Nile. As part of this mission, the Pethericks travelled up the Nile to the trading station Gondokoro with boats and supplies. However, 'when Speke became well overdue, the Pethericks headed into the interior on a trading expedition… Upon their return to Gondokoro, they found Speke and Grant in the company of Samuel Baker. Speke never forgave Petherick's absence, and the consul's reputation was badly tarnished' (Czech, p.129). Travels in Central Africa is based on notes, letters, and journal entries, most written by Katherine during the journey. Volume I mainly concerns the Nile journey to Gondokoro; Volume II contains numerous letters as well as details on local flora and fauna that the couple collected during their travels. With the 30 pages long publisher's catalogue at the end of Volume II.

      sp;- London - John Camden Hotten, 1869. sp;- London - John Camden Hotten, 1869 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A charming collection of these renowned nonsensical ballads from William Gilbert. First edition, originally published in the serial'Fun'. Adorned with various comic illustrations by the author. In writing the Bab Ballads, Gilbert developed his unique topsy-turvy style, where the humour was derived by setting up a ridiculous premise and working out its logical consequences, however absurd. The Ballads also reveal Gilbert's cynical and satirical approach to humour. They became famous on their own, as well as being a source for plot elements, characters and songs that Gilbert would recycle in the Gilbert and Sullivan operas. The Bab Ballads take their name from Gilbert's childhood nickname, and he later began to sign his illustrations Bab. Condition: In original cloth binding with gilt vignettes to the front board. Externally, lightly rubbed, with some minor wear to the extremities. Very small ink stain to the spine, as well as small corrective fluid spill to the front board. Internally, firmly bound, bright and generally clean, with only the odd spot. Earl of Dartmouth bookplates to the front pastedown. Overall: GOOD..

        John Leech's Pictures of Life and Character

      London - Bradbury, Agnew and Co., 1869. London - Bradbury, Agnew and Co., 1869 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce collection of series one to five of John Leech's Pictures of Life and Character From the Collection of Mr. Punch. Highly illustrated with Leech's drawings to each page. Five series bound in one volume. John Leech (1817 - 1864 in London) was an English caricaturist and illustrator. It was in 1841 that Leech's connection with Punch began, a connection which subsisted until his death, and resulted in the production of the best-known and most admirable of his designs. His cartoons deal at first mainly with social subjects, and are rough and imperfect in execution, but gradually their method gains in power and their subjects become more distinctly political, and by 1849 the artist was strong enough to produce the splendidly humorous national personification which appears in Disraeli Measuring the British Lion. About 1845 there was the first of that long series of half-page and quarter-page pictures of life and manners, executed with a hand as gentle as it was skillful, containing, as Ruskin has said, admittedly the finest definition and natural history of the classes of our society, the kindest and subtlest analysis of its foibles, the tenderest flattery of its pretty and well-bred ways, which has yet appeared. Condition: Rebacked in cloth, preserving cloth oforiginal illustrated to front board and spine. Externally, sound but with some wear to extremities, occasional rubbing, marks and stains toboards. Cloth lifting slightlyto backstrip. Internally, generally firmly bound although slightly strained in places. Bright but with occasional scattered foxing and handling marks. With loss and previous repairs to some pages, notablyto title and pages 1-10 to series one and to last page. With the occasional slight closed tear and tape repair. Overall: GOOD.

Original printed green wrappers. Two vertical creases, small chips in the edges of the wrappers. Stitching loosening. Very good. A scarce pamphlet inducing working men and women to come to California, where jobs are promised to be plentiful, and the living good. Two pages of text list scores of occupations, the number of workers desired in each, the pay, and the slots already filled. Other tables give statistics on the cost of living in California. Women are encouraged to come, as are unskilled laborers, and there is also information on education resources in the state, and the potential for farmers. The California Labor Exchange was established in April, 1868, in order to provide "poor people, residents of the State, and immigrants, with employment." They boast that in their first eight months of operation they found employment for upwards of 12,000 people. The advertisements are for some of the most prominent and influential businesses in California at the time, including the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, Wells Fargo, the ALTA CALIFORNIA NEWSPAPER, and the Bank of California.

        Beweis des Satzes, dass eine einwerthige mehr als 2nfach periodische Function von n Veränderlichen unmöglich ist

      Berlin: Georg Reimer, 1869. Berlin: Georg Reimer, 1869. First Edition. Wrappers. Good. First Edition. Wrappers. 4to (265 × 220 mm), pp. 4; text slightly chipped at fore-edge; contemporary green paper wrappers, chipped at fore-edge and corners, else good. Original offprint from the Journal für die reine und angewandte Mathematik, 71 (1869): 197-200.As the subtitle indicates, this ‘memoir'; was actually drawn directly from a letter that Riemann wrote to Karl Weierstrass (1815-1897) from Göttingen on 26 October 1859. Thought of as ‘the father of modern analysis';, from 1841 when the theory of real numbers had been established, Weierstrass turned his attention to the theory of analytic functions on the basis of power series, an approach he took from his mentor, Christof Gudermann (1798-1852). In the work offered here Riemann responded to Weiserstrass';s developments in complex function theory. The two mathematicians had been aware of each others'; work since at least 1856, and appear to have engaged in some healthy competition over the solution of Jacobi';s ‘inversion problem';.‘Already in the spring of 1856 Dirichlet contrasted Riemann and Weierstrass in a letter to Kummer in Berlin. Dirichlet remarks here that Riemann had developed with great speed since his time of study in Berlin, and that for several years he had occupied himself with, among other things, the general properties of functions of a complex argument and had founded on this basis a theory of Abelian functions which is doubtless even more comprehensive than the researches of Weierstrass ... The relationship of the two mathematicians must thus have been an extraordinary one from the very start. On the personal side, they appear to have understood each other quite well. Otherwise, it would scarcely be conceivable that Wilhelm Weber (1804-1891), Riemann';s supported for many years, should have proposed that Weierstrass be invited to become ordinary professor of higher mathematics at Göttingen, when Dirichlet';s chair became vacant in the spring of 1859, while at the same time Riemann was being promoted to ordinary professor of advanced theoretical astronomy and mechanics.'; (E. Neuenschwander, ‘Studies in the history of complex function theory II: interactions among the French school, Riemann, and Weierstrass';, Bulletin of the American Mathematical Society, New Series, 5, 2 (September 1981): 87-105, at 94-95.In September of 1859 Riemann went to Berlin in the company of Richard Dedekind (1831-1916) to accept nomination as a corresponding member of the Berlin Academy, on the invitation of Weierstrass. ‘As the existing sources indicate, they were received with great warmth, including an invitation to dine with Weierstrass. According to Mittlag-Leffler, Weierstrass on several occasions characterized Riemann as an "anima candida", and according to Runge he is even alleged to have said that he "loved Riemann like a brother".‘On the professional side, the mutual influence was unquestionably great. It would be entirely conceivable that the general systematic construction of the Weierstrassian function theory, achieved around 1860, as P. Dugac has determined, could have been inspired by, among other things the works of Riemann pertaining to the same set of ideas.'; (Neuenschwander, op. cit., at 95-96) While Weierstrass went on to critique Riemann';s thinking on complex function theory after the latter';s death, there seems no doubt that in 1859-1860 Riemann played a pivotal role in the development of Weierstrass';s thinking, not least through this letter, sent shortly after Riemann';s trip to Berlin to meet with him.No copies of the offprint are recorded on COPAC.

Prior to this, in contrast with the more experienced Vaux, Olmsted had never actually designed and executed a landscape design. They were awarded the project in 1858. Overall a clean copy, some occasional foxing mostly marginal. Highly decorative binding, gilt cover designs with corner arabesques frame a center, circular motif housing the initials CP within, plus an elaborate gilt spine design, slight rubbing to backstrip extremities.
