        Hereditary Genius: An Inquiry into Its Laws and Consequences

      London: Macmillan, 1869 First edition of Galton's most important work. Presentation copies of Galton's books are uncommon; the only one noted in recent auction records is on the Honeyman copy of Meteorologica, sold in 1979, which is also inscribed "from the Author. Original mauve cloth, expertly recased. Gilt front cover and spine. Octavo. Two folding tables. Includes the slip with "Directions to binder" bound between 2C3 and 2C4. Head of spine faded, minor soiling. A good, clean copy. Presentation copy, inscribed "From the Author" on the verso of the front free endpaper. This copy was owned by John Tomes (1815-1895), founder of the Royal Dental Hospital (See Garrison and Morton 3683), and bears his signature in two places, along with pencil notes on a terminal blank, presumably in his hand. "In Hereditary Genius, his best-known and most influential book, Galton investigated the heritability of scholarly, artistic, and athletic talent, using the records of notable families as data. He concluded that such talents have a high degree of heritability, and that people vary in the kind and degree of hereditary abilities they possess. He applied the Gaussian or normal curve to the range of human abilities, expanding upon Quetelet's observation that certain measurable human characteristics are distributed like the error function, and thus gave a new importance to biological and psychological variation, which had previously been regarded as unimportant" (Haskell Norman Catalogue No. 864). "…[Galton] in my opinion to-day, created it; there is nothing in the memoirs of Gauss and Bravais that really antedates his discoveries…Galton, starting from the organic relationship between parent and offspring, passed to the idea of a coefficient measuring the correlation of all the pairs of organs, and thence to the 'organic' relationship of all sorts of factors…Galton realized as fully as any of us now the width of application that would open up to the new calculus of correlation…His advances were chiefly hampered by the restriction of his data and the need for organized observers and computers" (Karl Pearson in Pearson & Kendall, Studies in the History of Statistics and Probability, Volume I, pp. 200-1).

        Our American Cousin: a Drama, in 3 Acts

      (S.l.) (s.n.) 1869. First printing. Duodecimo, Wrappers , 46 pages. Condition: Very good. The first printed appearance of the popular play that Lincoln was watching when he was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth in 1865. Laura Keene had acquired the rights to Tom Taylor's "Our American Cousin" in 1858, and opened it that year in her theatre in New York. The play was a great success and Ms. Keene was very careful to protect her property. Besides the original manuscript owned by Keene and one other manuscript copy found in the estate of Joshua Silsbee, the play only existed in the manuscript prompt books used by the actors until Ms. Keene finally allowed this version of the play to be printed in 1869. Even then, despite its tragic link to Lincoln's murder, the play retained enough popularity that Keene was careful to prominently state on the title page that the work was "Printed, but not published." Copyright law at the time was not very protective of dramatic works deemed to have been "published." (See Bryan, "The Great American Myth, " p. 176; Taylor, "Our American Cousin: the Play that Changed History, " p. 25.) This copy is bound in original plain light blue wrappers over a sewn binding. Original cast from the 1858 opening at Laura Keene's Theatre, New York, appears on verso of title page. The last words that Lincoln heard on this earth appear on page 37. Heel of spine has some shallow chewing along last 3/4, " title and year lightly pencilled on front cover, title penned in contemporary ink on spine. A nice example of this scarce piece. Americana

Wir hatten in den letzten 14 Tagen fortwährend Besuch und die paar ruhigen Stunden die mir vergönnt waren mußte ich benutzen um meine Arbeiten für den Londoner Verleger zu vollenden. Dieser drängt mich um MS. da jetzt die stille Zeit ist und die Stecher mehr Aufmerksamkeit auf ihre Arbeit verwenden können. Ich bin ein aufrichtiger Deutscher Michel und Sie werden mir dies gewiß nicht übel nehmen, da Sie ja auch Einer vom alten Schlage sind [.]". - Pauer lebte in London und wurde 1866 zum kaiserlich österreichischen Hofpianisten ernannt.

        American Beauty Personified as The Nine Muses

      N.p. [New York?], n.d. [ca. 1869] - In 1869, the Italian-American painter Joseph Fagnani's exhibition of the "Nine Muses" was held at the Somerville Art Gallery. A review of the show by the New York Times (Nov. 22, 1869) reads: "As just recognition rather than a flattering compliment of America female beauty, these pictures, apart from the strict consideration of their artistic merits, are full of interest, and, wherever they are taken, will be sure to attract much attention. We learn the muses are loudly called for in other quarter; and those who have not worshipped at their shrine, should, like good patriots, make haste to do so." Here, in this remarkable little album, Fagnani aims to highlight and emphasize the varying beauty of American women, at a time when the European ideal served as the sole model for American standards. All the more remarkable is this copy's extraordinary association with two of the most celebrated American beauties of its period, the Jerome sisters, Jennie (1854-1921) and Leonie (1859-1943). Daughters of New York financier Leonard Jerome, Jennie and Leonie would have been teenagers at the time of the Fagnani exhibition after the Civil War. The two were to become among the most famous beauties of their day and the toast of England: Jennie, when she married Lord Randolph Churchill, younger son of the Duke of Marlborough, in 1874; and Leonie, ten years later, when she married the baronet Sir John Leslie. Jennie, of course, soon became the mother of Winston Churchill; and Leonie was the mother of Shane Leslie. This album, with the actual identities of the sitters revealed by Leonie, represents perhaps the teenage aspirations of the two sisters, soon to be realized in high society. The original portraits are now in the Metropolitan Museum of Art (CHURCHILL, WINSTON) 6-5/8 x 5-3/4 inches (16.8 x 14.5 cm). Frontispiece portrait photograph (albumen print) of artist Joseph Fagnani, and 9 albumen prints from portraits of American women by Fagnani, each sitter identified by an ink caption in a previous owner's hand. [56] pp. Contemporary limp burgundy morocco, with a handwritten paper label affixed to the upper cover, reading: "American Beauties as Muses 1860-1870 (with names written by Leonie Jerome)" and gilt-lettered spine. Some wrinkling to mounts, small dampstain to lower part of gutter margins, but overall a good copy. With the bookplate of LEONIE [Jerome] LESLIE on the front pastedown, and that of her sister, JENNIE [Jerome] SPENCER CHURCHILL on the rear flyleaf [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      1869 - In: Journal für praktische Chemie 106, 1869, 8vo. p.251. ---- Sparrow 147 - The first appearance of Mendeleev's periodic table in a western journal. Mendeleev's work on Osnovy khimii led him directly in March 1869 to his formulation of the periodic law and table, in which the elements were grouped by atomic weight and grouped according to their chemical and physical properties. He famously used his table to predict accurately the elements which later came to be called gallium, germanium and scandium. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      TORINO, CALCOGRAFIA LOVERA, 1869 (mm 140 x 216 più marg.) - Incisione originale finemente eseguita all'acquaforte e rotella su matrice di rame. In lastra, sotto la parte figurata, indicazione dell'artista, misure del dipinto riprodotto, indicazione della calcografia, e titolo. L' immagine riproduce un dipinto di Ernesto Rayper, la trasposizione su lastra, eseguita con abile tratteggio, spetta allo stesso autore, il quadro fu esposto alla XXVIII mostra della Promotrice di Torino nel maggio 1869. Rayper studiò all'Accademia Ligustica di Genova con Tubino e Novaro, approfondì lo studio del paesaggio con Tammar Luxoro, e poi nel 1861, come altri suoi colleghi, si recò a Ginevra presso il noto vedutista Calame. L' interesse dell'artista per l'acquaforte maturò intorno al 1863-64 circa; negli stessi anni Rayper elaborò il proprio stile naturalista a contatto con Perotti, D'Andrade e Fontanesi. L'opera in esame segna una svolta nella produzione incisoria di Ryper oltre che , in assoluto, nello sviluppo dell'acquaforte in Italia, l'artista modifica anche la tecnica incisoria puntando a stacchi netti di bianco e di nero . Esemplare in buono stato conservativo, a pieni margini. 0

        La Chaleur solaire et ses applications industrielles. 35 Gravures intercalées dans le texte.

      Paris, 1869. 8vo. Uncut in the original printed wrappers. Wrappers frayed at edges, a bit soiled, and with some stains. A bit of brownspotting. Last leaves with a, mostly marginal, damp stain. First few leaves a bit frayed at edges. VII, (1), 238 pp. Illustrated.. Scarce first edition of the first book explicitly devoted to solar energy, "Solar Energy and its Industrial Applications", which coincided with the unveiling of Mouchot's largest solar steam engine, the so-called "Sun Engine", in 1869, which caused a revolution in the development of solar thermal power. His 1869 work constitutes a milestone of what we now call "green energy", as it laid the foundation for our understanding of the conversion of solar radiation into mechanical power driven by steam.Auguste Mouchot was a French mathematics teacher, who in the 1860'ies became famous as the designer (and patent-taker) of the first machine that generated electricity with solar thermal energy electricity by the exposure of the sun. Mouchot began his work with solar energy in 1860 after expressing grave concerns about his country's dependence on coal. His work on solar energy and on the development of his sun machine forms the basis for the later developments on solar energy. "The work of Adams, Ericsson, and Shuman had been directly influenced by the solar conceptions of Augustin Mouchot, a man who arrived on the scene in nineteenth century France at precisely that moment when his ideas were likely to attract the most attention. It was a time when French industrial might was at a peak and her leaders open to new ideas, none more so than her emperor. In 1867, to commemorate the explosion of technology that had accompanied the industrial and artistic carnival over which he had presided for 15 years, France's Napoleon III decided to invite the whole world to an international exposition that he would host in Paris." (Kryza, The Power of Light, p. 147). "His initial experiments involved a glass-enclosed, water-filled iron cauldron, in which sunlight passed through a glass cover, heating the water. This simple arrangement boiled water, but it also produced small quantities of steam. Mouchot added a reflector to concentrate additional radiation onto the cauldron, thus increasing the steam output. He succeeded in using his apparatus to operate a small, conventional steam engine. Impressed by Mouchot's device, Emperor Napoleon III offered financial assistance, which Mouchot used to produce refinements to the energy system. Mouchot's work help lay the foundation for our current understanding of the conversion of solar radiation into mechanical power driven by steam.The publication of his book on solar energy, "La Chaleur solaire et ses Applications industrielles" (1869), coincided with the unveiling of the largest solar steam engine he had yet built. This engine was displayed in Paris until the city fell under siege during the Franco-Prussian War in 1871, and was not found after the siege ended." (The Energy Library)

      TORINO, CALCOGRAFIA LOVERA, 1869 (mm 140 x 216 più marg.)Incisione originale finemente eseguita all'acquaforte e rotella su matrice di rame. In lastra, sotto la parte figurata, indicazione dell'artista, misure del dipinto riprodotto, indicazione della calcografia, e titolo. L' immagine riproduce un dipinto di Ernesto Rayper, la trasposizione su lastra, eseguita con abile tratteggio, spetta allo stesso autore, il quadro fu esposto alla XXVIII mostra della Promotrice di Torino nel maggio 1869. Rayper studiò all'Accademia Ligustica di Genova con Tubino e Novaro, approfondì lo studio del paesaggio con Tammar Luxoro, e poi nel 1861, come altri suoi colleghi, si recò a Ginevra presso il noto vedutista Calame. L' interesse dell'artista per l'acquaforte maturò intorno al 1863-64 circa; negli stessi anni Rayper elaborò il proprio stile naturalista a contatto con Perotti, D'Andrade e Fontanesi. L'opera in esame segna una svolta nella produzione incisoria di Ryper oltre che , in assoluto, nello sviluppo dell'acquaforte in Italia, l'artista modifica anche la tecnica incisoria puntando a stacchi netti di bianco e di nero . Esemplare in buono stato conservativo, a pieni margini.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1869 First edition, second issue, with the cancel title, as usual., of the first English work that Vladimir Nabokov recalled hearing read. Nabokov said that the fate of its hero, Humphrey "used to bring a more specialized lump to one's throat than anything in Dickens or Daudet." . Contemporary diced calf, nicely rebacked in calf, gilt spine with burgundy morocco label, marbled edges. . Octavo. Title-page a cancel, with "All rights reserved" below the imprint First few leaves foxed. Presentation copy, inscreibed: "Pussie Hobhouse with Florence Montgomery's love 56 Cadogan Place May 15th 1870." Later ownership signature on front free endpaper. A very good copy. "Montgomery's breakthrough was with her third work, Misunderstood (1869), whose preface states (p. v): 'The following is not a child's story. It is intended for those who are interested in children.' It is the story of Humphrey Duncombe, whose widowed father thinks him naughty and thoughtless, but whose high spirits conceal deep thoughts and yearning for the love of the father and the dead mother. There is just time for the father to appreciate how wrong he has been before the boy's heart-rending death. This book remained in print throughout her life, and her later fiction appeared as 'by the author of Misunderstood'. A notorious tear-jerker, it invites the reader to identify with the neglected child who makes the grown-ups feel guilty. Such stories, Montgomery made clear in the preface to Thrown together (2 vols., 1872), were not suitable for children to read as she was obliged 'to side, as it were, with the children against the parents'" (Oxford DNB).
