        Contributions to the Theory of Natural Selection. A series of essays. FIRST EDITION.

      Macmillan & Co. 1870 43pp cata. (Jan. 1870). Orig. green cloth by Burn & Co.; very sl. rubbing to tail of spine, corners sl. bumped, hinges starting. v.g.Published in 1858, Wallace's essay 'On the Tendency of Varieties to Depart Indefinitely from the Original Type', published beside excerpts from an essay by Darwin, established him, with Darwin, as the co-founder of the theory of natural selection. Although Wallace describes himself in the preface as the 'independent originator' of the evolutionary theory, he was not in competition with Darwin. 'I have felt all my life that Mr Darwin had been at work long before me, and that it was not left for me to write "The Origin of the Species". I have long since measured my own strength, and I know well that it would be unequal to that task'.

        Eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift.

      [?], 2. IV. 1870. - [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 François 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 Société 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. - Sprache: Französisch Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Although only three parts had been issued prior to his death, publication of the work continued, and on completion with Part 6 of all available material, the vast army of readers was left high and dry as to 'The Mystery.' The Author during the writing of the story never disclosed the ultimate development of his plot" (Hatton and Cleaver).John Jasper's Secret was the first of many attempts to solve The Mystery of Edwin Drood. The work was written by the New York journalist Henry Morford (1823-1881) and his wife. Smith, 16; Gimbel H330; Sadleir 705a; Not in Sadleir. [Attributes: First Edition]

Through the surrounding trees and shrubbery is a view of a small fountain and the Capitol Building on a slight hill. Oscar Robert, born in Copenhagen, Denmark emigrated to the United States around 1864 and settled in Washington, D.C. where he remained for the rest of his life, according to a brief biography in Virgil McMahan's "The Artists of Washington, D.C. 1796-1996," [Wash., DC: 1995].

        Views of London etc. Artist's proofs.

      1870 - No publisher. c. 1870s. Folio. Sometime rebound in half brown morocco preserving original endpapers, gilt borders to sides , spine with gilt raised bands and lettering; 67 proof engravings, some in several states, of London scenes, many stamped or annotated by the artist; occasional foxing, some quite heavy in margins, very good. An album of proof plates signed by the artist to front pastedown. The painter and engraver Auguste Ballin (born 1842, died ?) was born in Boulogne but moved to London and exhibited paintings and engravings at the Royal Academy between 1872 - 1879 (see Benezit Dictionary of Artists). He became particularly known for maritime scenes and many of the engravings here represent London's docks and wharves, as well as scenes of the Thames. There is a particularly evocative scene of poachers catching fish in a net by moonlight (in two states) alongside a splendid depiction of Royal Navy ships of the line. Pasted in between some engravings are stubs recording Ballin's orders for a particular plate and which paper each customer has requested; a fascinating insight into the commercial life of a Victorian artist.

        Albumen photograph of wheat harvest with steam-powered thresher and thirteen laborers

      Grand Forks, Dakota: W. Caswell, Photographer, 1870. Photographer's stamp on verso: "W. Caswell, / Photographer, / Grand Forks, Dak.". 1 vols. Boudoir-style, image: 4-1/2 x 7-5/8 in. mounted on card. With split in image colored in. Photographer's stamp on verso: "W. Caswell, / Photographer, / Grand Forks, Dak.". 1 vols. Boudoir-style, image: 4-1/2 x 7-5/8 in. mounted on card. Little is known of William Caswell, save in 1877 he formed a partnership with Simon Duffin in Winnipeg, having previously operated out of Duluth, Minnesota and Grand Forks. This photograph, with Caswell's Grand Forks stamp dates from the 1870's, the era of Dakota Territory "bonanza" farms, heavily reliant on steam power: "On the bonanza farms opened up in the Red River Valley of the North in the seventies, portable steam engines for threshing were used from the beginning. To have relied upon horse power for threshing would have crippled the large-scale farming operations" (Wik, "Steam Power on the American Farm, 1830-1880") An early image from the first days of steam-powered grain harvesting in the Dakota Territory - the steam engine (on the left) is powering the thresher (in rear, behind stacked grain).

        24 photographies originales

      , [circa 1870], , 24 photographies albuminées rehaussées (environ 133x93 mm), les 24 photographies sont contre-collées sur un carton monté en accordéon recouvert de deux plats brodés de rouge et d'argent, Précieux album de photographies. Alors qu'au début des années 1860, les photographies réalisées par des occidentaux sur l'île du Japon sont encore très rares, Felix Beato crée, en 1863 à Yokohama avec son ami Charles Wirgman, un studio de photographie. Sa production et la manière dont il fixe sur le papier les Japonais, leurs moeurs et coutumes vont structurer, stylistiquement, la production photographique japonaise de la fin du XIXe siècle : un cadre simple au fond uni, quelques objets de mise en scène pour mieux faire jaillir le(s) personnage(s) ou la pratique culturelle photographiées. On peut rapprocher de la production de Beato, celle du japonais Kusakabe Kimbei. La présente série, bien qu'anonyme, s'approche fort de celle de ces deux grands photographes : elle montre des costumes traditionnels japonais (coiffures, diverses tenues d'intérieur ou d'extérieur, ombrelles), les moyens de locomotion (Jinrikisha et Kago) ainsi que les us et coutumes, principalement féminins, notamment les fonctions qui leurs sont imparties (cuisine, musique et danse, écriture et lecture, préparation et service du thé et l'art de la toilette) ; quelques photos montrent des groupes d'hommes : des porteur de légumes et d'épices, des tisseurs de bambous, des étudiants ou officiels en costume. Curieux ensemble où l'exotisme et le faste étranger de la femme d'Extrême-orient côtoient des vues populaires ; quelques clichés piqués.

        Anonymous manuscript titled:] The Early History Of Kilwa.

      No place, ca. 1870. - 8vo (ca. 205 x 130 mm). 44 pp. Stitched manuscript written in a legible hand on the recto of the leaves, without a front cover. Historically important chronicle of the Kilwa Sultanate, from the third century to the year 908 according to the Hijri calendar (ca. 10th to 16th centuries in the Gregorian Calendar), drawn from the chronicles collected by the nephew of Fakih Mufalih, a Kilwa dignitary. "The chronology of rulers of the Kilwa Sultanate is reported in a chronicle translated into Portuguese in the 16th century, and recorded by the chronicler João de Barros. There is another surviving chronicle by an unknown author, written in the early 16th century, and compiled in 1862 by (or for) sheikh Moheddin (Majid) of Zanzibar" (Wikipedia). It seems likely that this present chronicle is an early English translation or at least based on the Zanzibar chronicle of 1862. The chapter headings of the present chronicle are as follows: Chapter I: Of the first coming to Kilwa and its foundation by Persian princes of the district of Shiraz; Chapter II: Concerning the troubles of the people of Kilwa with the Matamandili; Chapter III; Concerning the rule of Abu Il Mawahib and giving a short account of his history; Chapter IV: Of the government of the Priest King whose surname was "The Early Rain"; Chapter 5: Of the return of the Sultanate to the house of Abu Il Matthhab; Chapter VI: Of the government of Hassan the son of the Wazir Suleman bin Malik Il'adl the of the Wazir Yarik, and therein the story of the Wazir Mohammed Kiwabi the son of the Sultan the Injured; Chapter VII: Of the government of the Sultan Jathil the son of the Sultan Suleman the Just King the uncle of the Sultan Mohammed Ibu Hosein. "The Kilwa Sultanate was a Medieval sultanate, centered at Kilwa (an island off modern-day Tanzania), whose authority, at its height, stretched over the entire length of the Swahili Coast. It was founded in the 10th century by Ali ibn al-Hassan Shirazi, a Persian prince of Shiraz. His family ruled the Sultanate until the year 1277. It was replaced by the Arab family of Abu Moaheb until 1505, when it was overthrown by a Portuguese invasion. By 1513, the sultanate was already fragmented into smaller states, many of which became protectorates of the Sultanate of Oman. At the zenith of its power in the 15th century, the Kilwa Sultanate owned or claimed overlordship over the mainland cities of Malindi, 25 Inhambane and Sofala and the island-states of Mombasa, Pemba, Zanzibar, Mafia, Comoro and Mozambique (plus numerous smaller places) - essentially what is now often referred to as the "Swahili Coast". Kilwa also claimed lordship across the channel over the myriad of small trading posts scattered on the coast of Madagascar (then known by its Arabic name of Island of the Moon). To the north, Kilwa's power was checked by the independent Somali city-states of Barawa (a self-ruling aristocratic republic) and Mogadishu (the once-dominant city, Kilwa's main rival). To the south, Kilwa's reach extended as far as Cape Correntes, below which merchant ships did not usually dare sail"(Wikipedia). - First page with some toning and a few small ink spots, but overall the manuscript is in very good condition.
