GRAY, Henry
1870 Henry Gray GRAY’S ANATOMY Human Surgery Illustrated Medicine Physician “The most comprehensive and detailed textbook on human anatomy!” Few works go through as many editions as Henry Gray’s ‘Anatomy.’ In 2015, “Gray’s Anatomy” reached its 41st edition, and even still it is “considered to be the most comprehensive and detailed textbook on the subject!” (O’Neal, USATODAY, 2005.) This rare late 19th-century edition is considered exceedingly rare, and editions printed by Lea Brothers are very desirable to doctors and medical students still today. During the early 20th-century, there was a boom in medical understanding and knowledge. This book was a critical component in that boom, thus the reason for dozens more editions being printed! Thomas Pickering Pick, editor, is known chiefly for his edits of the 10th through 14th-editions of this work. According to ‘Heirs of Hippocrates,’ “Gray’s ‘Anatomy’ still remains a standard textbook, and much of the original text and many of the superb anatomical illustrations have been retained throughout the successive editions [a work that] must be compared to the ‘Fabrica’ of Vesalius.” This edition features over 450 woodcut engravings. Impressive! Brilliant Condition! Item number: #4705 Price: $750 GRAY, Henry Anatomy, descriptive and surgical the drawings by H. V. Carter, with additional drawings in the second and later editions by Dr. Westmacott Philadelphia: Henry C. Lea, 1870.

McKenney, Thomas; James Hall
Philadelphia: Rice, Rutter & Co, 1870. Hardcover. Three volumes complete of one of the "most costly and important works ever published on American Indians" (Field) with stunning hand colored lithographic plates of Native Americans, from the original paintings of Charles Bird King. The author, Thomas McKenney, who was US superintendent of Indian Trade in Georgetown, wanted to develop a government collection of noted Native Americans who visited Washington DC as delegates of their tribes, and so engaged Charles King, a noted portrait painter to make the portraits. King's portraits of leaders from at least 20 tribes were painted from life. Bird exhibited his portraits at the Smithsonian Institution until unfortunately the majority of them were destroyed by fire in 1865. McKenney and Hall's reproduction of the King portraits in the hand colored lithographs in these 3 volumes was an unrivaled aesthetic and technological accomplishment. The 3 volumes have a total of the 100 plates as stated on the title page. However Vol. I has 39 of 40 plates (missing Moanhonga at p. 177); Vol. II is complete with 48 of 48 plates called for on the contents page plus 2 extra unlisted plates, Billy Bowlegs (at p. 1 & described in the following pages) and John Ross (no. 88 1/2 at p. 290); and Vol. III with 10 of 11 plates, (missing Tuko-See-Mathla at p73.)

This copy with a presentation from Sir Frederick Augustus Abel to the renowned natural philosopher John Tyndall, inscribed and signed by Abel at the top of the front wrapper. From the time he became ordnance chemist at the Royal Military Academy at Woolwich till his retirement in 1888, Abel (1827-1902) was the chief government authority on all matters connected with explosives, and the man who invented the smokeless propellant cordite in 1889 in collaboration with Sir James Dewer. "He was a member of the ordnance select committee, was expert for submarine defense and smokeless powder, and from 1888 until his death was president of the explosives committee. The transformation of arms and ammunition which took place during his thirty-four years of service at Woolwich necessarily occupied the greater part of his scientific career, though almost ever branch of technical science was enriched by his labours" (DNB). Sir Frederick invented an instrument to test the flash point of petroleum products, electrical fuses and other applications of electricity to warlike purposes. He was knighted in 1891. The report was prepared by C. W. Younghusband at the request of J. H. Lefroy, Master of Ordnance. Only University of Chicago and a copy in the Netherlands in OCLC.

All photographs, except one, are credited to John K. Hillers. Although originally hired as a boatman, the German-born Hillers assisted Beaman and became the most prominent photographer of the expedition due to his enthusiasm for learning the techniques and willingness to carry heavy equipment. Powell had intended that his cousin Clem would assist, but he proved unenthusiastic. Powell made Hillers the head photographer, and after the Colorado River expeditions, he continued to work for Powell at the USGS and Bureau of Ethnology until his retirement.

PHOTOGRAPHY John P Soule
A lovely album, in embossed leather, with a very pretty and delicate clasp. Nearly full, with 35 cdvs, all of natural scenes in New England and especially New Hampshire. There's a splendid image of "Cascade on Crystal Stream, Mt. Washington" with a figure seated with his rucksack (reminiscence of the famous image of Bierstadt painting at Crystal Stream). Many photographs (e.g. "Eastman's Fall" bear the backmark of John P. Soule, of Boston, well known for his portraits of Bostonians and of views of the New Hampshire mountains, a number of which are in this album. There are several views of houses, including "Wiley House" and "Washington House" in Pittsfield, New Hampshire. A remarkable gathering of New Hampshire cdvs, almost certainly from the 1870's, as John Soule left Boston in 1872. With the name of George M. Seavey; we locate a person with that name born in East Deerfield, Rockingham, New Hampshire, in 1842.

Paris: Gruel et Engelmann, [n.d., originally published in 1. Paris: Gruel et Engelmann [n.d., originally published in 1870, but this is a later issue] Godefroy Engelmann (1788-1839) was a Franco-German lithographer and chromolithographer. He trained in Switzerland and France at La Rochelle and Bordeaux, and he studied painting and sketching in Jean-Baptiste Regnault's atelier in Paris. He is largely credited with bringing chromolithography to France, and later of commercializing it.

***Copy of photos, personal formats, graphics, or text is prohibited. Ebay may drop listings with infractions. I review content regularly. Deluxe Limited Editions Don Quixote Author: Miquel de Cervantes Illustrations by Gustav Dore Description: This special limited edition from Easton Press recreates 1870 edition in a very exclusive run of just 600 copies. That's a minuscule number in the big scheme of things. Gustav Dore is considered one of the greatest, if not THE greatest illustrator of all time and that alone makes this a very special copy. In addition, the book has gorgeous gilt design and two tone leather stamping for a much richer look. In truth it is the most beautiful copy I have seen and it is destined to become extremely scarce. There are a few copies out there because people are downsizing and some secondary sellers still have stock (it is sold out from manufacturer). Frankly, many buyers have no idea how stunning and special this volume is. I HIGHLY recommend not waiting regardless of who you buy it from. This book will eventually become a near impossible get. Unfortunately, my lighting and equipment wasn't adjusted quite right and the photos are a little dim. They don't nearly do this book justice for its beauty! I have numerous special volumes illustrated by Gustav Dore that you should check out. The regular sized book placed in the background of first photo is placed for scale and is not included in the sale. Condition: SEALED with original box, stock photos are pulled from on-line sources This Fine Leather Book Features: Top grade, gold embossed/ornamented … [Click Below for Full Description]
