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]

Manuscript; Cosby William W; Turner, Charles W.
1871. Reconstruction-Era Account Book of a Richmond, Virginia Law Firm [Manuscript]. Cosby, William W. Turner, Charles W. [Account Book of Cosby & Turner]. Richmond, Virginia, 1871-1875. [xxiv], 458 pp. Folio (13-1/2" x 8-1/2") Reversed calf, black-stamped frames to boards, raised bands and lettering pieces to spine, "Ledger" gilt-stamped to upper piece, marbled endpapers. Light rubbing and a few scuffs and stains to boards, heavier rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners, rear joint starting, rear hinge cracked. Moderate toning to interior, "Cosby & Turner/ Attys at Law/ Richmond/ Virginia" to front endleaf, content to recto and versos of most leaves to p. 257, 5 manuscript items (one with entries 1876) laid in, a few annotations (including one dated 1883) and owner to front endleaves. $950. * With a thumb-tabbed index. Cosby and Turner practiced law in Richmond, the former capitol of the Confederacy, which was then recovering from the damage it suffered during the Civil War. Cosby, who was considered one of Richmond's finest attorneys, was also a distinguished Confederate artillery officer. He probably met his partner, Turner, when they were law students at the University of Virginia. The firm's 1871-1875 ledger records fees for an array of legal services to a large number of clients in Richmond and, on occasion, other parts of Virginia, including courts in Powhatan, Chesterfield, and Goochland counties. Clearly a successful firm at this time, it include fees for defense of warrants, writing land assessments and deed conveyances, executing summons … [Click Below for Full Description]

Hall to Guvernor Schønheyder, given during the Polaris Expedition, of the instruction to Charles Francis Hall to command an expedition to the North Pole on the USS Polaris. The present copy was aboard the USS Polaris and was given on July 27th 1871, when the USS Polaris arrived at Fiskenæsset in South East Greenland. <br>The PolarIs Expedition, which constitutes one of the first serious American attempts to reach the North Pole, ended in failure with the death, very possibly murder, of Hall. 19 members of the expedition became separated from the ship and drifted on an ice floe for six months and 1,800 miles (2,900 km), before being rescued. The damaged Polaris was run aground and wrecked near Etah in October 1872. The remaining men were able to survive the winter and were rescued the following summer. All crewmembers, except C. F. Hall, survived. <br><br>The Chief Scientist on the expedition Emil Bessel, presumably the person who poisoned Hall, noted when arriving at Fiskenæsset: "A boat rowed toward us f … [Click Below for Full Description]

We specialize in ALICE and this is the ONLY ONE WE HAVE EVER SEEN! And it's in FINE CONDITION!!! ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ This sale is for an original 1871 ONE - OF - A - KIND "PRESENTATION EDITION" of "ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND" by Lewis Carroll. YOU'LL LOVE THIS BOOK!!! It is filled with 42 ILLUSTRATIONS!!! by the original "Alice" artist, Sir JOHN TENNIEL. It is a work of children's literature by the English mathematician and author, Reverend Charles Lutwidge Dodgson, written under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells the story of a girl named Alice who falls down a rabbit-hole into a fantasy realm populated by talking playing cards and anthropomorphic creatures. The tale is fraught with satirical allusions to Dodgson's friends and to the lessons that British schoolchildren were expected to memorize. The Wonderland described in the tale plays with logic in ways that have made the story of lasting popularity with adults as well as children. A girl named Alice is bored while on a picnic with her older sister. She finds interest in a passing white rabbit, dressed in a waistcoat and muttering "Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be too late!" She follows it down a rabbit-hole where she finds herself floating down into a dream underworld. As she attempts to follow the rabbit, she has several adventures. She grows to gigantic size and shrinks to a fraction of her … [Click Below for Full Description]

Philadelphia, 1871. This exceptional originally hand-colored engraving is from Alexander Wilson’s "American Ornithology or The Natural History of the Birds of the United States". This ediiton was published in 1871 and featured very clean plates with beautiful original hand-colored. --- Alexander Wilson is known as the “Father of American Ornithology.” Wilson’s work, "American Ornithology", was the first focused on only American birds. Wilson drew most of the birds for the work himself and employed Alexander Lawson and John G. Warnicke for the engraving. Wilson died in 1813 and his friend George Ord made it to press. Prince Charles Lucien Bonaparte (Napoleon's nephew, who took refuge in America after his defeat, undertook the supplement to the work, which was completed in 1833. --- Frank L. Burns, in his bibliography of Wilson, writing of the present edition, notes that it is "a reprint of Ord's fine 1828-29 edition, with the interpolation of Baird's Catalogue of North American Birds, reprinted from the 8vo edition of 1858, and the addition of Bonaparte's work. The original plates of Wilson's work were purchased at a cost of $1700, but as Bonaparte's beautiful plates had been melted and sold for old copper, resource was made to photography and electrotyping to reproduce the latter."

Komplette Folge der unvollendet gebliebenen historisch-topographischen Beschreibung des Rheins. „Das Lebenswerk von Christian von Stramberg, der "Rheinische Antiquarius", ist bis heute ein Unikat. Auch wenn es in der Kritik steht, weil es weder wissenschaftlich erarbeitet noch hinlänglich verlässlich ist, wird darin Vieles festgehalten, was sonst wohl nicht überliefert wäre. So bleibt Strambergs Werk eine vielgenutzte und unverzichtbare Quelle zur rheinischen Geschichte." Johann Christian von Stramberg (1785-1868) studierte ab 1803 in Erlangen, danach in Paris die Rechts- und Staatswissenschaften. „1810 trat er in den Dienst in der Verwaltung des Rhein-Mosel-Departements; es war seine Aufgabe, die jährlichen statistischen Berichte über die Mairien [Bürgermeistereien] des Départements zu liefern. Seit 1812 verwendete er dafür ein rationalisiertes Verfahren, indem er einen gedruckten Standardfragebogen verschickte. So erwarb er umfassende Detailkenntnisse über die Verhältnisse im Département. Gleichzeitig brach durch die französische Niederlage in den napoleonischen Kriegen die Staatsgewalt weg, die das Material in Auftrag gegeben hatte.

Susan B. Anthony, et al
Hartford, CT: Case, Lockwood & Brainard, Printers, 1871. An Appeal to the Women of the United States by the National Women Suffrage and Educational Committee First edition, first printing in original dust jacket Hartford: Case, Lockwood & Brainard, Printers, 1871. 4 pp. Self-wrappers. First edition. Fine. An announcement by famous feminist Susan B. Anthony and five other suffragettes of the formation of a National Woman Suffrage and Educational Committee, and their intent to pursue recognition of voting rights for women under the 14th and 15th amendments. These were recent amendments (around three and one years old, respectively) but this salvo relies on them heavily, as well as on a taxation-without-representation argument harking back to the origins of the republic. In 1875 the Supreme Court would close the door on this line of thinking and suffragettes would have to change strategies, but this leaflet proceeds all that; it's still heady with fresh ideas and a brand new organization appealing for funds and women's names for a pledge book compiled by the NWSEC Secretary. A rare document of a brief glimmer of optimism in what would be a long, hard slog-- the struggle for equal rights-- in excellent condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

James Clerk Maxwell
Macmillan and Co., London and Cambridge, 1871. 140x220mm; pp. 23, self-wraps. MAXWELL'S SUMMARY OF THE STATE OF PHYSICS ON THE EVE OF THE PUBLICATION OF THE 'TREATISE', AND THE INAUGURATION OF THE CAVENDISH TRADITION OF EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH. Offered here is the exceptionally scarce first printing of Maxwell's inaugural lecture as Professor of Experimental Physics at the University of Cambridge. So radical was the transformation that Maxwell's appointment represented that he chose to hold a poorly-advertised event in an obscure lecture room; the lack of attendees is matched by the rarity of this accompanying printed text of the lecture, copies of which are held at just four libraries in the United Kingdom, one in the Netherlands, and two in the United States. Amongst many eloquent statements perhaps the most famous quotation is the following: "the history of science shews that even during that phase of her progress in which she devotes herself to improving the accuracy of the numerical measurement of quantities with which she has long been familiar, she is preparing the materials for the subjugation of new regions, which would have remained unknown if she had contented with the rough guide of the earlier pioneers". Also notable are Maxwell's discussion of 'Experiments of Illustration' and 'Experiments of Research', and the Baconian 'Experiments in Concert', i.e. collaborative global measurement projects, especially into terrestrial magnetism. Maxwell also introduces his 'statistical method' in a discussion of molecules in motion, and ends on a visionary note regarding the u … [Click Below for Full Description]

Just ask! 1871 1ed Charles Darwin Descent of Man Evolution Natural History Apes Science 2v "it is those who know little, not those who know much, who so positively assert that this or that problem will never be solved by science." ― Charles Darwin, The Descent of Man A very rare edition of Charles Darwin's 'Descent of Man.' This is the work in which Darwin's theories of evolution by means of natural selection were realized. Before this book, Darwin applied his thoughts to animals and plants but had not yet decided they also could be realized in Homo sapiens. In fact, the world 'evolution' had not appeared in any Darwinian work prior to 'Descent of Man.' Many of Darwin's theories that were prevalent in 'Descent' have been misconstrued and misinterpreted - most notably that humans descended from apes. Darwin never said humans came from apes or monkeys. Darwin's said that "human ancestors, if alive today, would have to be classified among the Primates." (De Beer).
