        Light for the Blind

      1870. MOON, William. Light for the Blind. A History of the Origin and Success of Moon's Institution for Embossing and Circulating the Bible and other Books in Moon's Type for the Blind, in English and Foreign Languages. Together with: The Thirty-sixth Annual Report of Moon's Society. xi, 160, 40 pp. Illustrated with 4 lithographic plates, three of them embossed. 8vo., bound in publisher's blue cloth. Brighton: William Moon, n.d. |~||~||~| A presentation copy of William Moon's 'Light for the Blind', which was first issued in 1873. It gives details of the use of his embossed type for printing in several languages, which he had been doing since the 1840s, having gone completely blind himself at the beginning of that decade. Moon was an indefatigable campaigner for reading material for the blind, producing a monthly magazine, supporting home-teaching societies and lending libraries of his books, and travelling widely; the reports of his society bound at the end of this volume include a list of nearly one hundred cities with such societies and libraries. The Brighton Society for the Blind which he founded is still in existence, promoting his type which is easier to learn later in life than the more widely-used Braille. This version contains one of Moon's reports for 1884 bound in the rear. The three embossed plates consist of two alphabets and a map of the Brisish Isles. There are no copies of this edition recorded in OCLC. Inscribed 'Mrs Robinson, with the Christian regards of the author, October 18. 1884'. Garrison & Morton 5909.

      JAPANESE ROMAN ALPHABET. Shinpan jinbutsu koamotegata. Yamaguchiya han. Colour woodblock print. 360 x 240 mm. Japan: ND [ca. 1870].|~||~||~||~||~||~||~||~||~| A charming Japanese woodblock depicting the roman alphabet formed from human figures and printed in five colours (yellow, red, purple and blue against a green background). Along with the various characters twisting and contorting to form the letters are four oval vignettes featuring a Japanese man and woman and two western men. The alphabet proceeds in the Japanese manner from right to left. The printing is somewhat unsophisticated which merely ads to it's whimsy. A rare object in fine condition.

        Ornamente aller klassischen Kunst-Epochen nach den Originalen in ihren

      1870. ZAHN, Wilhelm. Ornamente aller klassischen Kunst-Epochen nach den Originalen in ihren eigenthümlichen Farben dargestellt. Illustrated with 100 colour lithographic plates after Zahn. Folio, 447 x 310 mm, bound in contemporary German green morocco over marbled boards. Berlin: Dietrich Reimer, 1870. |~||~||~||~||~| Third Edition of a beautiful and important work first published in 1849 with the same number of plates, so popular as to be republished in this edition more than twenty years later. This is the most comprehensive in a series of publications by the artist and academician Wilhelm Zahn (1800-1871). This massive volume -- a monumental achievement of nineteenth-century colour printing -- contains one hundred plates based upon paintings made by the artist in situ. It includes facsimiles of decorations by Giulio Romano in the Palazzo del Te, Mantua; medieval mosaics in Sicily; antique vases; and, above all, Roman wall paintings from Pompeii and Herculaneum. Many of these works were reproduced for the first time by Zahn. His plates had a significant impact upon Neoclassicism in Germany. The author studied painting at the Academy in Kassel and in Paris with Baron Gros prior to his first trip to Italy in 1824. From the first his efforts gained the support of prominent artists such as Schinkel and Schnorr von Karolsfeld. His initial publication of Pompeian wall paintings, Neu entdeckte wandgemälde in Pompeij (Munich, 1828), was warmly praised by Goethe in Jahrbücher der Literatur (Vienna, 1830). Occasional foxing, but overall a clean copy. Thieme-Becker XXVI, 385. Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie XL, 668-670.

        To The Independent Electors of the Borough of Newark

      Saracen's Head, Newark: Weaver, 25 March, 1870. Printed broadside, 505 x 380 mm, small tear bottom left corner repaired. "our Colonies would be regarded as the natural outlet for our excessive population...'. A most unusual survival: a political broadside from the later career of Sir George Grey, seeking to capitalise on his Colonial experience.Although fresh from his ignominious recall from South Africa, Grey here announces his principles to the voters of Newark (Nottinghamshire), noting that 'as one to whom Her Majesty has repeatedly confided the important task of great dependencies, I take a deep interest in Imperial questions. I am opposed to the views of those who would advocate the severance of the Colonies from Great Britain, believing that they add to her strength, wealth, and glory... I have striven to initiate a policy of Emigration, by which... our Colonies would be regarded as the natural outlet for our excessive population...'.Grey, an explorer and politician, made his first Australian exploration in 1838 (having cadged a lift on HMS Beagle), and went on to have a long and important career in the colonies. He was the Governor of South Australia from 1841-45, of New Zealand from 1845-53, and of the the Cape Colony from 1854-68. The present document dates from his abortive attempt to force his way into the British Parliament in 1870 as a Gladstonian Liberal who, rather perversely, was not supported by Gladstone himself (the British Prime Minister came out in full-throated support for his opponent Sir Henry Storks). The failure of Grey's bid decided him to return to New Zealand the same year.

        Manuscrit Autographe "Chiromancie"

      - LOUYS Pierre (1870-1925), poète et romancier. M.A. Chiromancie. 1 p. et ½ in-4. Curieux et amusant texte déclinant les prédictions établies le 27 février 1896 par Mme Marthe, successeur de Desbarolles, quant à l¿avenir du poète. Elle constate d¿abord : qu'il est « trop bienveillant, trop confiant, pas assez poseur, pas assez affirmatif de lui-même ». Puis s¿ensuit un résumé des années importantes. « A 30 ans, discussion d'intérêts à la suite d'une mort ; et spécialement, discussion d'intérêts pour droits d'auteur au sujet d'une oeuvre dont mon collaborateur musical serait mort. » Au final, Pierre Louÿs peut espérer vivre jusqu'à 72 ou 76 ans. Elle lui conseille de ne pas avoir de liaison ou attachement dans les deux ans qui suivent, de porter une attention particulière à l'année 1898 qui est la plus mauvaise, « de ne pas se marier avant 1904 » et de suivre son goût si l'auteur est attiré vers « une littérature presque scientifique ».

        From Garfield?s library, a book authored and inscribed to him by Congressman Samuel S. Cox, who spearheaded legislation to create and expand the predecessor of the U.S. Coast Guard, the Life-Saving Service

      The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below:Book Signed and Inscribed, ?Gen. Garfield - / With New Years? / Greeting - / from the author, / Saml S. Cox / 1 Jan 1870 / N.Y? on front free brown end paper, James A. Garfield Library bookplate on fixed end paper, 8vo, 442 pps., London: Sampson Low, Son, and Marston; New York: D. Appleton & Co, 1869. Lapis blue decorative boards stamped with black and gilt. Shelf wear and tears at spine caps. Cracked inner hinges and binding shaken, else good condition. Flaws easily restored. Samuel Sullivan Cox was in 1870, a Congressman from New York. He first served in Congress as a Democrat from Ohio, elected in 1856. He served three terms before being defeated largely due to his impassioned speech denouncing Republicans for supporting a pamphlet promoting miscegenation (inter-racial relations), a hoax later determined to have been conceived and printed by Democrats to influence racially biased voters to vote Democratic. The hoax was unsuccessful and Cox lost in the election. Cox left Ohio and moved to New York to practice law, and returned to Congress to represent New York?s 6th district in 1868. In Congress, Cox headed legislative efforts to create, organize, and expand the U.S. Life-Saving Service, a predecessor of the Coast Guard. It was established in 1871 to rescue victims of shipwrecks by maintaining patrol stations along American shores. Two years after his death, members of the Life-Saving Service presented Cox?s widow with an elaborate silver vase which she presented to the Smithsonian the following year.

        The Collected Edition of the Novels and Tales by the Right Honorable B. Disraeli

      - London - Longmans, Green and Co., 1870 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A collection of the writings of former Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli. Containing Lothair, Coningsby, or the New Generation, Sybil, or, The Two Nations, Contarini Fleming; The Rise of Iskander, Alroy; Ixion in Heaven; the Infernal Marriage, Popanilla, The Young Duke; Count Alarcos; and Vivian Grey. All new editions. Disraeli's writing is considered generally interesting, and his books teem with striking thoughts, shrewd maxims, and brilliant phrases which stick in the memory. Critic William Kuhn argued that much of his fiction can be read as the memoirs he never wrote, revealing the inner life of a politician for whom the norms of Victorian public life appeared to represent a social straitjacket particularly with regard to his allegedly ambiguous sexuality. Lothair was the first novel written by Benjamin Disraeli after his first term as Prime Minister. It deals with the comparative merits of the Catholic and Anglican churches as heirs of Judaism, and with the topical question of Italian unification. Though Lothair was a hugely popular work among 19th century readers, it now to some extent lies in the shadow of the same author's Coningsby and Sybil. Armorial bookplate of H. W. Eyres to front pastedown. Missing the frontispiece portrait of Disraeli. Containing eight volumes of ten only (missing are volumes IV and V (Tancred and Venetia)Condition: In decorative cloth bindings with gilt detailing. Externally, generally smart, though with some bumping and light wear to the heads and tails of the spines. Front hinges strained. Internally, generally firmly bound although slightly strained in places. Pages are bright, though with some heavy spotting throughout. Overall:GOOD due to spotting, butstill an attractive set..

      [?], 2. IV. 1870.. 3 S., 8°.. [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - "De la Rive wurde 1823 Professor an der Akademie in Genf. Seine experimentellen Untersuchungen bezogen sich auf die Elektrizität und den Magnetismus. Durch seine Erfindung, Silber und Kupfer in galvanischen Bädern zu vergolden, legte er den Grund zur weiteren Entwicklung der Galvanoplastik. 1841 erhielt er für seine Erfindung von der französischen Akademie der Wissenschaften einen Preis von 3000 Franken. Er lieferte auch Untersuchungen zu Problemen der Thermodynamik und der Wellenoptik. Mit Francois Marcet untersuchte er die Spezifische Wärmekapazität von Gasen und machte Beobachtungen zur Bestimmung der Temperatur der Erdkruste. Er machte Studien zur Theorie der Voltaischen Zelle und zur elektrischen Entladung in verdünnten Gasen, was ihn zu einer Theorie zur Aurora Borealis führte [...]. 1859 wurde er zum auswärtigen Mitglied der Bayerischen Akademie der Wissenschaften gewählt. 1862 gründete er in Genf gemeinsam mit Marc Thury die Societe pour la construction d'instruments de physique (SIP) zur Herstellung wissenschaftlicher Instrumente. Die Universität Oxford wollte ihm 1873 die Ehrendoktorwürde verleihen. Auf dem Weg dorthin verstarb er plötzlich bei Marseille" (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. -

        History of England from The Fall of Wolsey to The Defeat of the Spanish Armada.

      London. Longmans, Green, and Co. 1856- 1870. - 8vo. 22cm, first edition, in 12 volumes, bound contemporary in half crimson crushed morocco, gilt ruled raised bands, gilt decorations in the panels, gilt titles, marbled boards and endpapers, t.e.g., a fine set in attractive fine binding (N8) Froude (1818-1894), historian and miscellaneous writer, became a disciple of Carlyle and turned to writing historical and other essays for the Westminister Review, Fraser's Magazine (which he edited, 1860-74) and elsewhere. As a historian he was best known for his History of England. Froude believed (with his hero 'Carlyle'), that great men initiated and control events, and that the 'art' of history was to enter dramatically and imaginatively into what the historian thought was the successful 'force' of the time. Froude was a partisan historian, but his bias was avowed and therefore not really misleading. His dramatic treatment of history was, perhaps, especially successful in his 'Reign of Elizabeth'. The present work and his "The English in Ireland. 3v" were the centers of some controversy. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        The Mystery of Edwin Drood

      London: Chapman and Hall. , 1870. With twelve illustrations by S. L. Fildes and a portrait. Octavo (222 x 138 mm). Modern calf, raised bands to spine, dark brown morocco label, double frames to boards in blind, all edges untrimmed, marbled endpapers. Frontispiece portrait of Dickens by J.H. Baker, vignette title page, and 12 engraved plates. Bookplate of John H. Barnes to front pastedown, blind stamp of Nicholas H. Morgan to front flyleaf. Spine slightly darkened, boards a touch soiled, extremities very lightly rubbed, inner hinges gently cracked but firm, light foxing throughout. A very good copy. First edition, first issue bound with wrappers and advertisements; includes the cork advertisement at the end of Part II and the 18 pence price on the cover of Part VI. The Mystery of Edwin Drood was originally planned as a twelve-part serialisation but was never completed, with only six parts published before the author's death, thus leaving the identity of the murderer unknown. "Soon a whole Drood 'industry' (which still flourishes today) grew up, concerned with providing a plausible solution to the mystery" (ODNB).

Er erhielt 1903 das Komturkreuz des Franz-Joseph-Ordens mit dem Stern und war Komtur der französischen Ehrenlegion. Im Jahr 1910 wurde er schließlich Mitglied des österreichischen Herrenhauses [...]. Adolf Lieben war ein bahnbrechender Forscher auf dem Gebiet der organischen Chemie, die sich vor allem synthetischer Methoden bediente.

        OLD BELT, KNIFE, KNIFE SCABBARD, PISTOL HOLSTER WITH TWENTY-TWO .44 CALIBER BULLETS STILL IN THE GUN BELT

      [n.p., n.d.]. 1870 - According to a facsimile typed letter dated August 21, 1920, that was signed by Historian and Author E. A. Brininstool, "this old belt, knife, knife scabbard and pistol holster were carried by a notorious horsethief who was shot and killed in South Dakota by Capt. George Bartlett, U.S. Deputy Marshal, in the early '80's. They were presented to me by Capt. Bartlett, and in turn are herewith presented to my good old pard, L. H. Spragle, to hang in his den as a memento of wild days on the frontier of Dakota. It will be observed that one shell is nicked on the head. Bartlett's bullet struck the shell, glanced off and went through the thief's body. The shells in this belt have never been taken out since the man was shot. E. A. Brininstool." In a second facsimile typed letter from Brininstool dated March, 21, 1921, the first paragraph says "Yep, you're right. You got that belt, holster and knife and scabbard. I did have the saddle, but had no place for it and sold it some years ago. I helped bury Bartlett here when he died some ten years ago or so, and my Indian stuff is the dope he had. Better hang on to this story and you have the goods to show along with it." L. H. Spragle and E. A. Brininstool first met in Reno in 1910 or so when they each were in the process of divorcing their wives. While the process was running its course they roomed together in a tent city and apparently had quite a time together. Spragle returned to Pennsylvania and he and Brininstool carried on a life-long friendship and correspondence. We find in an article by Jeff Gill some comments about Capt. George Bartlett but no references to the "notorious horsethief." Gill says ". a fascinating character named George E. Bartlett, a U.S. Marshall for Pine Ridge and a city west of there already infamous as Deadwood, South Dakota. Bartlett had worked as a sales representative for the gunpowder company owned by relatives of Warren Moorehead (his King family relations from Xenia, this apparently being the reason he and Bartlett knew each other in the first place), and also ran a small trading post of his own on a creek through part of the Pine Ridge Reservation.
