Père de l'anthropologie française, Broca est l'un des pionniers de cette discipline. Il fonda en 1859 la Société d’anthropologie de Paris, en 1872 la « Revue d’anthropologie », et en 1876 l’Ecole d’Anthropologie. Il a publié 223 articles et monographies convrant tous les aspects de cette discipline. Le quatrième volume, publié par son fils, traite de la craniologie et le dernier volume édité par le Dr. Pozzi, président de la Société d’anthropologie, se rapporte au cerveau. Il y trouve en particulier, les "Remarques sur le siège de la faculté du langage articulé" qui est l'article à l’origine du concept de différenciation des zones cérébrales, qui fait de Broca l’un des fondateurs de la neuro-chirurgie moderne.

         THE WONDERS OF THE YOSEMITE VALLEY, AND OF CALIFORNIA

      Alexander Moore, Boston 1871 - Farquhar observed that "Kneeland took pains to get reliable information and present it with more than ordinary care.

Illustrated with ten mounted albumen photographs credited to John P. Soule and a few textual engravings. Tall octavo. In a contemporary full blue morocco binding, with "Harleyford Manor" stamped in gilt on the front. Red ink ownership inscription, dated December 15, 1871, to the top edge of the title page.

         5 Verlags-Scheine mit eigenh. Unterschrift.

      Wien, 6. XII. 1870 - 9. IX. 1871. - Je ½ bis 1 S. 4to. In den handschriftlichen abgefaßten Verlags-Scheinen überläßt der Komponist der Hofmusikalienhandlung Carl Haslinger die Rechte an verschiedenen Kompositionen (Walzer, Polkas, Quadrillen, Märsche etc.) und quittiert zugleich den Empfang der vereinbarten Honorare. - Wenige Jahre später sollte sich der Komponist verpflichten, sämtliche seiner Werke dem neuen Verlagsinhaber des renommierten Hauses Robert E. Lienau exklusiv zu überlassen, was aber schließlich den Verlag, der einst so erfolgreich mit den Werken der Familie Strauss war, auch nicht mehr retten konnte: War es Carl Haslinger noch gelungen, Johann Strauß Sohn und dessen Bruder Josef an sich zu binden, so sollten doch die Werke des jungen Johann Strauß nur mehr bis op. 278 erscheinen, und "es ist nicht bekannt, warum er und sein Bruder dann zu C. A. Spina hinüberwechselten. Zum Unglück für Haslinger leitete das op. 279, der ‘Morgenblätterwalzer’ von Strauss, dessen Meisterwerke ein, die also endgültig an die Konkurrenz verloren gingen. Aber schon erstand in C. M. Ziehrer ein neuer Stern am Himmel der Tanzmusik, seine Werke erschienen bis op. 209, dann schloß sich noch Josef Kaulich an [.]" (MGG V, 1767, Art. Haslinger). - Mit hs. Registraturvermerken verso.

         Electoral Disabilities of Women. A Lecture Delivered at the New Hall, Tavistock, March 11th, 1871

      [n.p.]: Printed for the.Bristol & West of England Society of Women's Suffrage by the Tavistock Printing Company, 1871. First edition. Disbound and stitched at the spine; front wrapper partially detached with small paper loss to upper left corner not affecting text. Internally clean and complete, with all 23 pages unmarked and bright. A Near Fine copy of this exceptionally rare pamphlet, which does not appear in modern auction records or at any institutions according to OCLC. A suffragist rather than a more militant suffragette, Dame Millicent Fawcett employed dispassionate, rational arguments to make a case for women's rights. The lecture recorded in this pamphlet is a prime example of her methods, as the Electoral Disabilities of Women sets out and deconstructs seven common arguments against women's enfranchisement. Drawing on the philosophy of John Stuart Mill and Erasmus Darwin, Fawcett calls for logical consistency in Britain's application of disability laws, asserting that if concerns about women's intellect, emotion, or education levels are what bar them from civic participation, those same concerns must shape when and how men gain the right to vote.

         Constitutional Equality A Right of Woman; or, A Consideration of the Various Relations Which She Sustains As A Necessary Part of the Body of Society and Humanity; With Her Duties to Herself - together with a Review of the Constitution of the United States, Showing That the Right To Vote Is Guaranteed to All Citizens. Also a Review of the Rights of Children

      Woodhull & Claflin & Co, New York 1871 - A major work of first-wave feminism, written, not coincidentally, during the Presidential candidacy of Claflin's sister Victoria (Claflin) Woodhull. Together, the Claflin sisters formed one of the most notorious partnerships of the American Victorian era - spiritualists, free lovers, socialists, and outspoken feminists, the Claflins opened the first woman-operated stock brokerage on Wall Street, and their controversial newspaper, Woodhull & Claflin's Weekly, published the first appearance of Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto in America. Many of these activities were financed through Tennessee Claflin's more-or-less openly adulterous love affair with millionaire Cornelius Vanderbilt. The present work makes the fairly standard Constitutional arguments for women's rights, but also includes some rather controversial chapters on the institution of marriage (which the author characterizes as sex slavery) and dress reform. Oddly, not in Krichmar. A somewhat difficult book to find in any condition; this copy typically worn, but still serviceable and with extremely interesting provenance, bearing the ownership signature of one of the key figures of second-wave feminism. Octavo (23cm). Publisher's green cloth, ruled in blind and lettered in gilt on spine and front cover; 148pp; frontispiece portrait. Moderate rubbing and wear, with losses at spine ends and cloth worn through at corners; Good or better and internally sound. This the copy of feminist theorist and author Aileen Kraditor, with her ownership signature at bottom margin of second blank, dated 1961. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Portrait autobiographique de S.M. Invasion III.

      [Paris], sold by Dessendier, [ 1871]. - A satirical lithograph, issued in the aftermath of the Paris siege, unfavourably comparing Napoleon III with his uncle Napoleon, who had been the subject of a similar anthropomorphic satire at the beginning of the century. The original Napoleon print had depicted the victims of his successful ambitions in Europe and the territories he had conquered; this one shows his nephew, 'Invasion III', with the corpses of those who died for his ambitions. He wears a cloak made from a map of his principal defeats (Strasbourg, Sedan, Boulogne, Mexico) and a sash bearing names Cayenne, Lambessa and La Rocamarie (the first two being French penal colonies the last being the site of the miner's revolt immortalised in Zola's Germinal). His hat is the Napoleonic eagle with a beak full of lard. Lithograph (sheet size 395 × 314 mm). Browned. Modern mount.

         Democratic Vistas

      Washington, D.C.: [Printed for J.S. Redfield, New York], 1871 Original green wrappers. A near fine copy. FIRST EDITION. One of about 500 copies. In these essays on democracy and individualism, Whitman provides both an outline for an American cultural order and a statement of his own literary ideals. He discusses the impact of westward expansion on the American character while condemned the corruption and greed of the Gilded Age. He writes: "Never was there, perhaps, more hollowness at heart than at present, and here in the United States. Genuine belief seems to have left us." His solution to the moral crisis is literature: "Two or three really original American poets...would give more compaction and more moral identity, (the quality to-day most needed) to these States, than all its Constitutions, legislative and judicial ties," he declared, believing that literature would unite the country. "Never was anything more wanted than, to-day, and here in The States, the Poet of the Modern is wanted, or the great Literatus of the Modern.".

FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, with the uncorrected text in Vol. I and with the list of errata on the verso of the title-page in Vol. II. Freeman observes that "there are important textual differences" between the two issues of the first edition. One of these, later rectified with the removal of long passages from the second issue, is pointed out in the first issue's inserted slip referring to "a serious an unfortunate error, in relation to the sexual differences of animals." This is the work in which Darwin applied his theory of evolution by means of natural selection to man, a subject he had avoided for the decade following the publication of On the Origin of Species. The word "evolution" appears here for the first time in any of Darwin's works (it was incorporated the following year in the sixth edition of the Origin). Darwin observed that man's extinct ancestors would have to be classified among the primates, a statement that was misinterpreted in the popular press and caused a furor surpassed only by that of the Origin. Darwin wrote, "The time will before long come when it will be thought wonderful, that naturalists, who were well acquainted with the comparative structure and development of man and other animals, should have believed that each was the work of a separate act of creation." Freeman 937.

         The Coming Race

      Adam, Stevenson & Co., Toronto 1871 - A mysterious and fascinating science-fiction novel by one of the most profound and intriguing English writers of the nineteenth century. Captivating and thrilling, The Coming Race tells of a superior subterranean race and an energy-form called "Vril", which to some extent has been deemed prophetic by some, most notably Helena Blavatsky and Rudolf Steiner. Written in Bulwer-Lytton's elegant, deeply refined style. Volume shows some pronounced aging on covers from fading and staining. Purple cloth covers feature black line decoration on both boards and title in gilt on front. Boards exhibit some scattered damp/grease stains with mild edge fading and rubbing. Corners are lightly rubbed. Spine has gilt text and blind-tooled gilt decoration, and is strongly sunned and faded with softening at ends. Binding is overall tight with some gaps at gutter between certain pages and some cracking at front hinge. (See photos) Yellow endpapers display pencil notes and are minimally worn. Interior is gently age-toned with some scattered foxing, unevenly pronounced. Inside pages are free of writing and intentional marks. Some pages display corner creases and tears along fore edge. (See photos) Text block edges show mild to moderate toning and foxing, with some darkening and dust, and a white stain, along foot. (See photos) Book may exhibit additional minor signs of age or wear. Reprinted from the American edition. One page of publisher ad at end of volume. 207 pages. 5 x 7.25 inches. Postage for oversized and international shipping will be calculated by size and weight. AbeBooks shipping quotes are ESTIMATES only.

         1871 Troy "Haymakers" BaseBall Club Document from the First Year of the National Association (the First Professional Baseball League)

      Troy, NY, 1871. Manuscript. Very rare. One page, partially printed document on "Haymaker Base Ball Club" letterhead, aprox. 5x7". Dated at Troy, N.Y., Oct. 19, 1871 and completed in ink. Original document from the Haymaker Base Ball Club of Troy, New York informing a shareholder of a meeting to be held at "Calder's Office" , 8PM, Friday, October 20th (1871) with notation at bottom "Very important". Traditionally, ball club stockholder meetings would be held (as in this case) shortly after the end of the playing season for the purpose of dividing profits (or, in the not unusual case of a loss for the year, making assessments of members) and paying off the players. The Haymaker Club of Troy was one of the founding members of baseball's first professional league, The National Association, which functioned from 1871 through 1875. The NA was not a strong league, plagued by weak teams, loose discipline and contract-jumping players and was replaced by the still-extant National League in 1876. Troy entered the National League in 1879 and in 1883 transferred the franchise to New York City where it became known as the Giants. Among the notable players to perform for both the Haymakers and the Giants were four future Hall of Famers---Roger Connor, Mickey Welch, Tim Keefe and Buck Ewing. Light mailing folds but otherwise a fine, clean piece. Material from the National Association is exceedingly rare.
