With a patriotic pride in her native land, Mrs. F. was desirous that the book should be entirely of Canadian production, without any foreign aid, and thus far her design has been carried out; whether successfully or not, remains for the public to decide. . 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.

Overall very good. Fourteen watercolours corner slit-mounted or tipped onto album leaves, neat calligraphic ink captions on the mounting leaves and occasional in a minuscule hand at the foot of the images by the artist. With a watercolour map/track chart loosely inserted. A excellent group of very well-executed, high quality amateur watercolour views by a mid-nineteenth-century English traveller to Russia, including an unusual series of views of the Volga cities – Nizhny Novgorod, Simbirsk, Samara and "Ouswan opposite Kazan on Volga" - Verkhny Uslon village, located directly opposite Kazan on banks of the river. Other images offer appealing panoramas of the Caucasus Mountains and the shore of the Caspian Sea between Petrovskoye - fortress first erected in 1844, now Makhachkala capital of Dagestan - and Derbent, the country's second city; the Greater Caucasus with Mount Shahdag, 14,000 feet, now in Azerbaijan; and of the environs of Isfahan. There are also four excellent studies of Moscow showing the Kremlin, "Towers of Kremlin Moscow"; exterior and interior views of St. Basil's Cathedral, the famous domes, and inside a chapel; together with a sombre study of an abbess and a group of nuns. Also a lively street view titled "In the Suburbs of St. Petersburg," with a fire watch tower, drozhkys and a four-horse omnibus. Two other views depict the harbour at Helsingborg and the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. The images are accompanied by a hand drawn "Map of route from Hull to St. Petersburg," covering the traveller's route across the Baltic Sea. Crisply, and meticulously detailed visual record of travels in Russia by a talented amateur observer.

        Carlyle's Works

      920 - New York - Lovell, Coryell and Company 1869 - A ten volume set ofÂvarious works ofÂThomas Carlyle, rebound in attractive leather bindings. Published in New York by Lovell, Coryell and Company, these scarce US editions are testament to the popularity of the author during his own era and since, with many of the works still considered definitive in their genres and subjects. Including novels seen as among the finest of the Nineteenth Century, such as Sartor Restartus, and his authoritative history of the French Revolution, the collection is one of diversity and breadth. Including a seven volume (boundÂintoÂa setÂofÂfour)Âof his controversial biography of Frederick The Great, in which Carlyle makes the case for the proto-fascist ideal of the 'Heroic Leader' forging the state and bringing order to chaos, as well as his novelÂSartor Resartus,Âin which the author parodies Hegelian philosophy and German Idealism, the works here offer an accurate summary of Carlyle's controversial, bellicose viewpoints as well asÂhis unique talent as a philosopher and author. Considered to be one of the leading thinkers and writers of the Victorian era, Carlyle'sÂworks in history,Âphilosophy, mathematics and teaching are now considered hugely influential in their fields. Despite this, his politcalÂleanings have earned him something of a negative reputation, with works suchÂOccasional Discourse on the NegroÂQuestion,ÂÂin which he arguesÂthe case of the acceptabilityÂof using black slaves and indentured servants, having a particularly negative impact on his legacy. Included here are the following works:Critical and Miscellaneous Essays (volumes I-IV) bound in two volumesFrederick The Great (volumes I-VII) in four volumesOliver Cromwell's Letters and Speeches (volumes I-III) in two volumes,Âwith The Life of Friedrich SchillerÂSartor Resartus, The Life of John Sterling and Latter-Day Pamphlets as one volumeThe French Revolution (books I-VII)ÂCondition: Rebound in decorative half-calf bindings with gilt detailing and paper-covered boards. Externally smart, there is some minor wear to the extremitiies, joints, boards and backstrip. Internally, the pages are firmly bound and are bright and clean throughout, aside from some tide marking to Sartor Resartus and various handling marks. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED.

      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]

        Woman`s work and woman`s culture. A series of essays.

      London, Macmillan, 1869 - LXIV, 367 Seiten. *Erste Ausgabe, sehr seltenes und bedeutendes Werk aus der Frühzeit der europäischen Frauenbewegung. Die Herausgeberin Josefine Butler versammelt hier Essays von viktorianischen Feministinnen und einigen männlichen Unterstützern, das Vorwort stammt von ihr selbst. Josefine Butler (1828-1906) begann im gleichen Jahr 1869 ihre berühmte Kampagne gegen die "Contagious Diseases Acts" (rigide und entwürdigende Regierungserlasse zur Gesundheitskontrolle von Prostituierten). In den 16 Jahren bis dieser Erlass aufgehoben wurde, "veränderte die Kampagne die politische Landschaft. 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. Sprache: Englisch Gewicht in Gramm: 800 [Attributes: First Edition]
