        Italie. Souvenir d?un voyage de Nice a Génes par la Corniche.

      Vingt-trois de mes dessins . Eaux - Fortes. MDCCCLXIX (1869), - Album in folio oblungo (mm 435x600, compreso il margine bianco); completo del foglio di titolo. stampato in rosso e nero, e delle 23 acquaforti (di mm 250x430 alla battuta). Legatura coeva in zigrino marrone, impressioni a secco ai piatti, titolo oro al dorso a nervi. Straordinaria serie di 23 inusuali panorami orizzontali della Riviera Ligure e della Costa Azzurra, sicuramente impressi in limitato numero di prove. Accanto alle vedute più comuni, ispirate al lavoro dell'Orsolini e Perrot, la sensibilità dell'autrice ha saputo cogliere spiagge e scorci sino ad allora sfuggiti agli artisti francesi, come Alassio o Cervo. Ogni lastra porta inciso sul rame in grafia corsiva, verso il margine inferiore, il nome della località raffigurata. Comprende 3 vedute di Nice, 2 di Menton e una per ciascuna delle seguenti località: Villefranche; Eze (Esa); La Turbie; Monaco; Bordighera; Ventimiglia; San Remo; Port Maurice; Oneglia; Cervo; Alassio; Albenga; Loano; Finale Borgo; Finale Marina; Noli; Savona; Genes. La Baronessa Nathaniel de Rothschild (1825-1899) fu celebre pittrice francese, appartenne ad una delle famiglie più note di Parigi e frequentò alcuni tra i più importanti musicisti, intellettuali e artisti del suo tempo (Corot, Rousseau, Édouard Manet). La sua originale tecnica incisoria, risente chiaramente delle influenze dell'impressionismo; in particolare Manet incise, tra il 1862 e il 1868, circa 30 lastre nel medesimo stile artistico. Magnifico esemplare appartenuto all'autrice, con ex-libris ''Abaye des Vaux de Cernay. Nathaniel de Rothschild'', l'autrice aquistò e restaurò l'abbazia di Vaux de Cernay nel 1880. Serie rarissima, sicuramente impressa in numero limitato di copie, di grande interesse grafico, documento topografico importante per alcume località raffigurate. Benezit, vol.11, pag 119. Astengo-Fiaschini nn. 55,99,122,123,132,147 e 160. La route de Genes, nn. 58-59. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Medical Anatomy: or, Illustrations of the Relative Position and Movements of the Internal Organs.

      John Churchill & Sons, London 1869 - Large Folio (533 x 365 mm). 26 unnumbered leaves and 21 partially hand-colored lithographed plates by Hullmandel and Lemercier after William Fairland and Leveille, some illustrations in text. 20th-century three-quarter dark blue levant morocco over blue cloth boards, spine lettered and ruled in gilt in compartments, five raised bands (some minor rubbing, binders leaves creased). Little age-toning througout, a few text leaves and 5 plates with marginal waterstains not affecting image, several text leaves and plates with soiling and short marginal tears (including a few with tears near gutter), plate XXI foxed and with a long repaired tear at gutter. Provenance: Charing Cross Hospital Medical School Library (title-page with library ink stamps on recto and verso); collection of Dr. Gerald Sugarman. Still a very good copy, with generally good color. ---- Garrison-Morton 422; Heirs of Hippocrates 1814; Sappol, Dream Anatomy, p.127; Bedford 855. FIRST EDITION. Sibson was a professor of medicine at St. Mary's Hospital. He "is mnemonically remembered by the terms Sibson's fascia (a fibrous band extending from the apical pleura and attaching to the transverse process of the seventh cervical vertebrae) and Sibson's muscle (a part of the scalenus group). Sibson had a special interest in the teaching of anatomy and believed that it was not being properly taught because the functional aspect of the organs, particularly those of circulation and respiration, was being neglected. As a result, he published the present work depicting anterior, posterior, and side views of dissections of male and female cadavers. With the exception of some parts of the neck, only the contents of the thorax and abdomen are shown. The anatomical relationships of the organs, their range of motion, and especially the effects of respiration and cardiac pulsation are described in a unique manner. Sibson makes allowance for the fact that in a cadaver the organ positions are fixed and not, therefore, exactly the same as in the living body. A final commentary on the structure, movements, and sounds of the heart reveals an accuracy far beyond anything that had yet been published in anatomical works. The work was issued in seven fascicles between 1855 and 1869 and is here published complete with a new title page for the first time." (Heirs of Hippocrates). Sibson was known for his taste for fine art, especially Flaxman, and he clearly wanted his magnum opus to look highly finished. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Mit der Kampagne wurden soziale und sexuelle Konventionen hinterfragt, die nie zuvor öffentlich diskutiert wurden. Die Kampagne radikalisierte zahlreiche Frauen, härtete sie ab gegenüber öffentlichen Angriffen und Verleumdungen und schuf eine Infrastruktur des öffentlichen Protests" (Philipps, S. 86). - Leicht gebräunt, Einband geringfügig altersfleckig, insgesamt gut erhalten.

And finally it was at last agreed that the Book of Canadian Wild Flowers should be the work of Mrs. Fitzgibbon, and the descriptions of the plants as delineated by her hand, should be selected and adapted to suit the subjects of the Plates from Mrs. Traill's MS....  Toronto, December, 1868.  C.P.

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

      Cameron & Ferguson, circa, Glasgow 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. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        REPORT OF SURVEYS ACROSS THE CONTINENT IN 1867-'68, ON THE THIRTY-FIFTH AND THIRTY-SECOND PARALLELS, FOR A ROUTE EXTENDING THE KANSAS PACIFIC RAILWAY TO THE PACIFIC OCEAN AT SAN FRANCISCO AND SAN DIEGO

      Philadelphia, 1869. Original front printed wrapper bound into modern dark brown calf, gilt. Bookplate on front pastedown. Text clean. Small tape repairs to map at gutter margin. Very good plus. One of the most detailed western railway survey publications, accompanied by a large, important map of the West and profile of the route from Missouri to California. This work sets forth the ambitious expansion plans for the Kansas Pacific Railway. Shortly after the railroad's decision to follow the Smokey Hill Route across Kansas and into Denver, the railroad began to show interest in moving forward with its projected line through New Mexico and Arizona to the Pacific. The folding map depicts the proposed route of the Kansas Pacific Railway. The map is based on the famous Keeler map of 1867, but with a number of additions. It is the first map to show and name the Grand Canyon. The text includes detailed reports of the mineral and agricultural resources along the route in Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and California. The folding profile, almost always lacking, shows the change in elevation along the entire route, from Missouri to California. It is riddled with important geographic details (passes, gaps, locations of rivers, etc.), as well as man-made landmarks such as sundry army forts and lines already constructed. In all, the profile offers a stunning visual summary of the challenging and dramatic variances in elevation with which the railroad's engineers had to cope. "[Palmer's] report is full of all sorts of information - geographic commentary, engineering detail, and comparative discussions of different routes, with attention to such larger matters as mineral resources, manufacturing resources, and sources of traffic" - Wheat. Palmer rescued James White on this expedition and also gives White's narrative, in his own words, of the remarkable overland expedition and trip through the Colorado Canyon. This copy, like the Graff copy, contains only one folding map. Howes asserts that some copies have three maps. Copies with the map and profile are extremely rare. A fundamental description of the American West. HOWES P54, "aa." WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI 1206. GRAFF 3177. SABIN 58383. FARQUHAR 24.

        Phineas Finn. The Irish Member.

      London: Virtue & Co., 1869 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original green pebble-grain cloth, titles to spine and covers gilt within decorative quatrefoil stamped in blind, red and white endbands, fore and bottom edges untrimmed, pale yellow endpapers. W. H. Smith subscription library plate to vol. II front pastedown and apparently effaced from vol. I. Spines rolled and slightly darkened, extremities bumped and rubbed, a few small marks to covers with pale mottling to front of vol. I, edges toned, very small chip to upper inner corner of vol. I sigs. L5-8. An excellent copy, internally crisp and the plates especially bright. Wood-engraved frontispiece with tissue-guard and 9 similar plates to each volume, all after John Everett Millais. First edition, from the library of Walter E. Smith, the pre-eminent modern bibliographer of 19th-century fiction and author of Anthony Trollope: A Bibliography of his First American Editions, with his pencilled ownership inscription to the initial blank of the first volume. Phineas Finn first appeared as a serial in Saint Paul's Magazine from October 1867 to May 1869, and was published by Virtue in March. The inexperienced publisher paid £3200 for the copyright, marking "the summit of Trollope's achievement as a novelist-earner", though his gamble was not a successful one, and "shortly after the book was published, James Virtue went out of general publishing altogether [B]efore he had time to sell many copies, he disposed of the copyright and was consequently debarred from putting the balance of his printed sheets on the market" (Sadleir, pp. 290-91). Copies in the original Virtue cloth are scarce as a consequence, and all the more so in collectable condition, the lending library plate to vol. II testifying to the fate of most Trollope first editions. Sadleir 30, not in Wolff. [Attributes: First Edition]
