Cricket]. [Blomfield Family
Charterhouse School: 1871. Hardcover. Dates: 1871-1877 and 1910. Small 4to. 37 ff., mostly with newspaper clippings neatly pasted in on both sides + 4 ff. in manuscript ("Summary of Scores" from 1871-1877 and 1910). Several leaves excised; it is possible that the present album had been re-purposed. On a few of the stubs appear fragmentary MS notations suggesting that the notebook may have once been divided alphabetically. We find on certain stubs "Ai" followed immediately by "Ao" and then several leaves later: "Her. - Hes" followed by "Io." Binding rebacked with smooth calf. In very good condition. Very good. Highly interesting homemade album of Cricket Scores, available nowhere else, specifically documenting the triumphs of three young members of the Blomfield family, namely: E.G. (Edward George), C.J. (Charles James), and R.T. (Reginald Theodore). One wonders if the present album was created in order to promote friendly competition between the brothers, all of whom were at one time students at Charterhouse, and from there went up to Oxford. There are scores and game synopsis of matches were between Charterhouse, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC), Trinity College Oxon., Exeter Oxon., and more. One of the more interesting features about the album is that it provides a fascinating record of one family's love of the game, which was eventually by the sons of one of the brothers. ¶ The parents of the three young men were Rev. George John and his first cousin Isabella Blomfield, of Bow, Devonshire, whose own father (Charles James Blomfield) was Bishop of London. ¶ Edward George (185 … [Click Below for Full Description]

Francisco González de Arenas
1871. El manuscrito Guerra montaráz o campaña de Cuba tiene 72 páginas y Proyecto de un plan de Campaña montaráz y marítimo, 78 páginas. Mide 21,5 por 15,5 cms. El estado de conservación en su interior es bueno salvo la página 27 que tiene una importante pérdida de papel y manchas que no afectan a la lectura. Aunque su portada y su contraaportada se conservan, ambas estan sueltas y desenganchadas del lomo. Entre 1871 y 1872, Francisco González de Arenas escribió dos manuscritos: Guerra montaráz o campaña de Cuba y Proyecto de un plan de Campaña montaráz y marítimo. El motivo de sendos estudios fue las serias dificultades que el ejército español tuvo durante la primera guerra de independencia de Cuba: la Guerra de los Diez Años (1868-1878). El autor subraya que el objetivo de estos estudios es defender la línea que separa los departamentos central y oriental con el occidental. En la Guerra montaráz o campaña de Cuba nos muestra las dificultades que tiene el ejército español para avanzar: dificultades topográficas, comunicación lenta y poco fluida entre las columnas, cuerpos y exploradores , movilidad lenta de nuestros soldados, falta de alimentos, de suministros de armas y municiones y de campamentos para atender a los heridos. Y realiza un programa para revertir las dificultades que tiene el ejército. En 1871 se realizará un plan de campaña, Las Trochas, para proteger villas y la región occidental. Se construirá una línea defensiva de Júcaro a Morón (norte-sud) que dividirá la isla. Este sistema defensivo estará formado por una serie de fuertes, puntos de caballería e ingen … [Click Below for Full Description]

THE WILLIAM RANDOLPH HEARST COPY, in stunning Bayntun bindings. "This is really two works. The first demolished the theory that the universe was created for Man, while in the second Darwin presented a mass of evidence in support of his earlier hypothesis regarding sexual selection... In the Origin, Darwin had avoided discussing the place occupied by homo sapiens in the scheme of natural selection, stating only that `light will be thrown on the origin of man and his history.' Twelve years later he made good his promise with The Descent of Man, in which he compared man's physical and psychological characteristics to similar traits in apes and other animals, showing how even man's mind and moral sense could have developed through evolutionary processes. In discussing man's ancestry, Darwin did not claim that man was directly descended from apes as we know them today, but stated simply that the extent ancestors of homo sapiens would have to be classified among the primates; however, this statement, as misinterpreted by the popular press, caused a furor second only to that raised by the Origin" (Norman 599).

Angelini, Annibale
1871. Hardcover. Oblong folio (350 x 450 mm). With 32 watercolors of high quality by Annibale Angelini delineated from the original frescos. Original red pebbled cloth (shaken), upper cover with the crowned monograph of Prince Camillo IX (Vittorio Emanuele) Massimo. In excellent unrestored state. Very good. An important discovery. This album of watercolors is the only surviving record of the once spectacular frescos and interiors of the elegant garden Casino Felice of the Villa Peretti Montalto alle Terme (later known as the Villa Massimo), built for Sixtus V by famed Roman architect Domenico Fontana. After centuries of neglect, the Villa, its two palaces, and its lush gardens were destroyed in the 1880s in order to make way for the central railroad station in Rome, the Roma Termini. The long-lost frescos of the Casino Felice are of the greatest interest to scholars of Renaissance Italian art: among the artists were C. Nebbia, F. Rosselli, D. Cresti (called il Passignano), G.P. Severo, L. Mainardi and G. Stella. All iconographic depictions of the these frescos survive only in the present album of watercolors. Situated on the highest point in Rome (on the Esquiline Hill overlooking the Diocletian Baths), the Villa Peretti Montalto was the palatial home of Cardinal Montalto Felice Peretti (b. 1521) who became Pope Sixtus V in 1585. Construction of the Villa and gardens continued unabatedly until the Pope died in 1590. The 160-acre Villa became the largest and most luxurious ever built within the Aurelian walls. The Pope's ambitions knew no bounds. In order to provide fresh wa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Faded, tears of the spine with small fragments lost, white paint on the upper edge of front cover and the second leaf, foxing occasionally, otherwise very good. First and only edition. An idea of the Russian Red Cross Society belonged to a founder of the field surgery, scientist Nikolai Pirogov (1810-1871). In 1854 he established the Exaltation of the Holy Cross Community of Sisters of Mercy for the help of wounded soldiers of Crimean War. The first group of nurses gathered 35 women, soon after that, the number rose to 250. In 1870, International Committee of the Red Cross invited Pirogov with physician I. Bertenson, as representatives of the Russian Red Cross, to visit the battlefields and field hospitals of the Franco-Prussian War. Pirogov examined 70 military hospitals, being interested in the local organization of treating the wounded people, the methods of curing, activities of the Red Cross, etc. He noticed with the pleasure that his idea of using plaster for the casts was applied abroad. He analyzed three methods of curing that were used and overviewed his techniques of life-saving treatment for the heaviest cases. The Franco-Prussian War made Pirogov think how exactly contemporary military medicine could be improved. He wrote about the need for an independent and well-prepared medical organization in Russia which cared about injured people and wasn't directly under military command.

RIVADENEYRA, D. Adolfo.
Madrid: M. Rivendeneyra, 1871. Duodecimo (170 x 110 mm). Contemporary grey pebbled cloth, titles in gilt on red sheep spine label, boards decorated with black panel-style motifs with "EL" monogram, patterned purple endpapers. Early ownership inscriptions on half-title, repeated on dedication page. Somewhat rubbed and lightly soiled, occasional light spotting and toning, a very good copy. First edition, presentation copy, inscribed by the author "A mi respectable amigo el Senor ?Corro [?]" on the half-title. Although well represented in Spanish libraries, Copac only lists two copies in the UK, and we could trace no early or first edition copies on the market of this rare account of the author's travels from Ceylan to Damascus, where he had been Spanish consul. Adolfo Rivadeneyra (1841-1882) was a Spanish diplomat, orientalist, traveller, and later, following in his father's steps, becamea publisher. He spoke "Turkish and modern Arabic with a correctness that is the astonishment of the natives themselves. The extraordinary manner in which he bore the fatigue and privations of every kind which this journey entailed, and the vivid manner in which he describes the native tribes, and his complete absence of exaggeration or conceit, render this book extremely entertaining" (Appleton).

Angelini, Annibale
1871. Hardcover. Oblong folio (350 x 450 mm). With 32 watercolors of high quality by Annibale Angelini delineated from the original frescos. Original red pebbled cloth (shaken), upper cover with the crowned monograph of Prince Camillo IX (Vittorio Emanuele) Massimo. In excellent unrestored state. Very good. An important discovery. This album of watercolors is the only surviving record of the once spectacular frescos and interiors of the elegant garden Casino Felice of the Villa Peretti Montalto alle Terme (later known as the Villa Massimo), built for Sixtus V by famed Roman architect Domenico Fontana. After centuries of neglect, the Villa, its two palaces, and its lush gardens were destroyed in the 1880s in order to make way for the central railroad station in Rome, the Roma Termini. The long-lost frescos of the Casino Felice are of the greatest interest to scholars of Renaissance Italian art: among the artists were C. Nebbia, F. Rosselli, D. Cresti (called il Passignano), G.P. Severo, L. Mainardi and G. Stella. All iconographic depictions of the these frescos survive only in the present album of watercolors. Situated on the highest point in Rome (on the Esquiline Hill overlooking the Diocletian Baths), the Villa Peretti Montalto was the palatial home of Cardinal Montalto Felice Peretti (b. 1521) who became Pope Sixtus V in 1585. Construction of the Villa and gardens continued unabatedly until the Pope died in 1590. The 160-acre Villa became the largest and most luxurious ever built within the Aurelian walls. The Pope's ambitions knew no bounds. In order to provide fresh wa … [Click Below for Full Description]

Darwin, Charles
London: John Murray, 1871. Hard Cover. First Edition. Fine. Two volumes. First edition, fourth printing (eighth thousand), printed December 1871 (same year as the first printing). Finely bound in early 20th century three-quarter tan calf over green pattern-textured boards, all edges marbled red and blue with matching marbled endpapers. A very bright and fine set with only a touch of rubbing to the extremities and some very minor wear to along the edges. Freeman 940. First published in February of 1871, The Descent of Man expands upon the theories of selection and evolution proposed in Darwin's earlier work, On the Origin of Species (1859). In Descent, Darwin puts forth a new theory of sexual selection, explaining how it differs from and works alongside natural selection. Notably, the first edition of Descent marks the first appearance of the word "evolution" in Darwin's writing. This volume discusses how evolutionary processes apply to humankind, drawing in concepts from evolutionary psychology and ideas of differing characteristics of anthropologically defined races of people. This work had huge implications for the history of humankind and was met with mixed responses from a society in which conservative religious beliefs could be at odds with scientific advancement.
