        Carte-de-visite Photograph Album

      Down, Kent 1871 - An intimate photographic memento of Charles Darwin and his family. This extremely rare Darwin family photograph album contains photographs of Charles Darwin (1809-1882) and his wife Emma Darwin (1808-1896); their son George Howard Darwin (1845-1912), with another showing George holding his nephew Bernard Darwin; their daughter Elizabeth Darwin (1847-1926) and another of Elizabeth; their son Horace Darwin (1850-1953); their daughter Henrietta Emma ‘Etty’ Litchfield (1843-1927), with another two of Henrietta; Henrietta’s husband Richard Buckley Litchfield (1832-1903), with another of Richard; Charles and Emma’s first grandson Bernard Darwin (1876-1961) with two other photographs of the infant; and other photographs of as-yet unidentified sitters. The portrait of Charles Darwin was made by Oscar Rejlander, “Darwin’s Photographer.” When Darwin decided to use photographs to illustrate his planned book on The Expression of Emotions in Man and Animals, he had found it difficult to obtain images with the desired facial expressions. After extensive searching, he eventually turned to the Swedish photographer Oscar Rejlander, whom he met in 1871. This seated portrait was one of several Rejlander made in 1871 or 1872. Darwin declared these “The best photographs of me” (Darwin Correspondence Project). Rejlander became “Darwin’s principal adviser on photographic issues [and] presented Darwin with at least sixty-four pictures of expression, more than any other photographer” (Prodger, Darwin’s Camera). Three of the portraits in this album are by Rejlander. Henrietta Darwin lived and worked with her father at Down House until her marriage at age twenty-eight to Richard Buckley Litchfield on 31 August 1871. This album contains portraits of Henrietta and Richard signed and dated on their wedding day, an indication of the sentimental importance of this album. “She was a valued editor to her father as well as companion and correspondent to both of her parents. Henrietta played a significant role in the continuing memorialization of both of her parents: she edited passages of The Autobiography of Charles Darwin (1887). Although Henrietta was not afforded the formal schooling provided to her brothers, her keen editorial eye was sought after by her father for his scientific writing, particularly his 1871 work, The Descent of Man. In this Henrietta provided far more than grammatical assistance; Darwin asked her to help clarify and enliven his work.” “Though far less recognized by Victorian society for her intellectual worth than her father or brothers, Henrietta was an essential lynchpin in the Darwin circle, and helped anchor both the scientific and domestic activities of her family” (Darwin Correspondence Project). Charles Darwin thanked Henrietta for her role in preparing the second printing of The Descent of Man (1871), writing in part, “Several reviewers speak of the lucid vigorous style etc.— Now I know how much I owe to you in this respect, which includes arrangement, not to mention still more important aids in the reasoning” (20 March 1871). After her father’s death, she assisted with the editing of his Autobiography and Life of Erasmus Darwin, and she edited her mother Emma’s Letters. Henrietta’s husband, R.B. Litchfield, took a junior position in the Ecclesiastical Commission to provide an income to support him in his work at the philanthropic Working Men’s College. There he taught mathematics and singing, eventually becoming its principal. Litchfield was a friend of James Clerk Maxwell and John Ruskin. Two of the photographs are of Charles Darwin’s second son George Howard Darwin (1845-1912). A distinguished astronomer, George Darwin was Plumian Professor of Astronomy at Cambridge, President of the Royal Astronomical Society, Fellow of the Royal Society, and recipient of its Royal Medal and Copley Medal. George Howard Darwin has signed his portrait on the verso. The collection also includes rare photographs of two other children of C [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Die Cellularpathologie in ihrere Bergrundung auf physiologiesche und pathologische Gewebelehre [Lectures on pathology by Rudolf Virchow. First Volume, Fourth Edition. Cellular pathology in full magnitude and physiology and pathological histology, shown by Rudolf Virchow.] Georg Puppe's Copy; Murray Gell-Mann's copyA Very Good copy of Rudolf Virchow's Lectures on pathology First Volume, Fourth Edition. Cellular pathology in full magnitude and physiology and pathological histology, Fourth, Newly Edited and greatly enlarged, SIGNED BY GEORG PUPPE on the second title page and there dated by him "1888", the year he graduated from Medical School, and stamped by him with his purple stamp indicating the book belongs to "Dr. Of Medicine, Georg Gottfried Puppe" (1867-1925). Considered the father of modern pathology and one of the founders of social medicine, Rudolf Virchow was a doctor, anthropologist, pathologist, prehistorian, biologist, writer, editor, and politician who considered physicians to be the natural attorneys of the poor and who is known for his advancement of public health. Puppe was the Extraordinary Professor of Forensic Medicine in Leipzig and he was a pioneer of Social and Forensic Medicine, a medical doctor, researcher, and author of several medical classics. He determined what came to be known as "Puppe's Rule" which provides that later-formed fractures cannot cross earlier-formed fractures, a rule which to this day is used in Forensic Pathology to determine the sequence of the impacts of a blunt object on the human skull.Although it does not carry his bookplate, this book belonged to Murray Gell-Mann, winner of the Nobel Prize in Physics "for his contributions and discoveries concerning the classification of elementary particles and their interactions" and coined the name "Quark" for certain elementary particles, naming them after a line in James Joyce's "Finnegans Wake". Having been owned first by Puppe, and thereafter by Gell-Mann, this copy joins these major figures together with Virchow, the book's author. The book is in Very Good condition with scuffing to the boards, some rubbing through at the board edges, and wear to the board corners, spine cracked along the surface, but holding quite well, and evidence of the removal of a prior bookplate to the front pastedown. A wonderful copy of a notable book associating three great men of science and medicine and SIGNED BY GEORG PUPPE. QUITE SCARCE INDEED.

Chirurgie der Nieren. 2 vols. in 1, 8vo. viii, 89 [1]; x, 314 [2]pp. 9 lithographed plates (incl. 3 chromolithographs); wood-engraved text illustrations. Erlangen: Enke, 1871 (Vol. I); Stuttgart: Enke, 1876 (Vol. II). 234 x 152 mm. Modern half morocco, marbled boards, original printed wrappers bound in. Light foxing but fine. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 4214. The era of modern urological surgery began in 1869, when Gustav Simon performed the first carefully planned nephrectomy; his patient was a woman suffering from ureterovaginal fistula caused by a botched ovariotomy. After writing a brief (two-page) notice of the operation in 1870 (see G-M 4213), Simon prepared a detailed illustrated account which he published as Volume I of his Chirurgie der Nieren. This volume contains two lithographed plates, the first a schematic drawing of the patient's injury, and the second an unusually artistic rendition (probably from a photograph) of the postoperative patient standing in front of a mirror displaying her surgical scars. The second volume of Chirurgie der Nieren, issued five years after the first, deals with the subject of kidney surgery in general, discussing operations on both injured and diseased kidneys. This volume, over three times as long as its predecessor, contains seven plates (three in color), showing a gunshot injury to the kidney, renal calculus and hypertrophy, and pre- and post-operative pictures of a case of hydronephrosis successfully cured by surgery.

        Shilly-Shally: Ralph the Heir [Program or Announcement for Reade's Unauthorized Dramatization of Trollope's Novel] WAS $975

      London: Gaiety Theatre, 1871. First edition. None. Very Good. A Very Good copy (expected age toning and wear, disbound from a volume with evidence thereof at the spine, "Trollope" written in a neat hand at the upper left margin of the first page and a small notation in pencil in the margin of page 4, printed on both sides of a single sheet and folded, slightly off-line, to produce 4 pages) of the program for the performance of Charles Reade's play "Shilly-Shally", a dramatization of Anthony Trollope's novel "Ralph the Heir", which play was written without Trollope's authorization and which produced a furious response from Trollope and a long and famous quarrel between the two authors. While in Australia, Trollope received a letter from his fellow author, Charles Reade, informing Trollope that he, Reade, had written a play he named "Shilly-Shally" based on Trollope's Novel "Ralph the Heir", and grandly stating that he had now opened the theatre for Trollope -- who had previously failed at this attempts to write a successful Play. Reade further stated that he would send Trollope a copy of the script and that Trollope might make a good deal of money from supervising the production of the Play in Australia. While Reade thought that he was acting quite well, Trollope was furious and wrote to George Smith, editor of the London newspaper the "Pall Mall Gazette", that: "It is monstrous that I should be made to appear as a writer of plays without my own permission, - or that I should be coerced into a literary partnership with any man." (Reade was crediting Trollope as a co-author of the Play, and some announcements, including the Program/Announcement offered here, actually listed Trollope's name first, making him appear to have been intimately involved in the writing of it. Trollope's great anger, of course, may have been sparked by his own failures in Play writing.) Trollope asked Smith to have that newspaper print a letter from Trollope (gentler in tone than the missive Trollope sent to Smith) disclaiming any association with the Play and further wrote to Reade objecting to Reade's actions, telling Reade that his actions were "wrong", and copying Reade on his (Trollope's) letter to the "Pall Mall". The Play, featuring the famous John Toole as Neefit the tailor, opened at the Gaiety Theatre in London on April 1, 1872 before Trollope even received Reade's letter, and had a successful one-month run. On Trollope's return to London, and angry Reade quarreled with Trollope and insulted him as an author, calling Trollope a "literary knob-stick" and a "publisher's rat". Thereafter, and for five years, the two famous authors would cross the street to avoid meeting each other and glared at one another when in the same room. An original Program/Announcement for the Play. In over 30 years of diligent searching for Trollope rarities, we never have seen another copy, nor have we ever seen a copy of the Play itself. A Rare Survival and a wonderful piece of Trollope Ephemera.

        KVOD MELEKH

      Y. M. Baksht, Zhitomir 1871 - Published after the first assassination attempt on Czar Alexander II. On April 4, 1866 a lone gunman, Dmitry Karakozov, fired a shot at the Tsar as he was leaving his summer garden in St Petersburg. The shot missed either due to Karakozov being distracted by a guard's shout or because a peasant, Ossip Komissarov, saw the gun and rushed forward jolting the arm of the gunman. The Tsar was visibly shaken and was even more shaken when he learned that his would be assassin was a member of the nobility. He went straight to the Kazan Cathedral to give thanks for his escape. The assassin to be, Karakozov, tried to escape but was caught by the Tsar's guards. He was tried, found guilty and sentenced to death by hanging. The sentence was carried out on September 3, 1866. Dmitry Vladimirovich Karakozov (October 23 Old Style (November 4 New Style), 1840 ¿ September 3 Old Style (September 15 New Style), 1866) was the first Russian revolutionary to make an attempt on the life of a tsar. Karakozov was born in the family of a minor nobleman in Kostroma. He grew to hate his class because all they did was "suck the peasants' blood." He studied at Kazan University 1861-64 and at Moscow State University 1864-66. He was expelled from both which led to depression and a failed suicide bid. In early 1866 he became a member of the "revolutionary wing" of the Ishutin Society, founded by his cousin Nikolai Ishutin in Moscow in 1863. In the spring of 1866, Karakozov arrived in St Petersburg to assassinate Alexander II. He circulated his hand-written proclamation called "To Friends-Workers", in which he incited people to revolt. He wrote a manifesto to the St Petersburg governor blaming the Tsar for the suffering of the poor: "I have decided to destroy the evil Tsar, and to die for my beloved people." This note never reached anyone; it was lost in the mail. It is possible 1866 was the year chosen because of the character of Rakhmetov in What Is to Be Done? This fictional inspiration of revolutionary youth plans for a revolution to coincide with the apocalypse according to Newton-1866. The inner organisation, nicknamed Hell, chose him by lots. He was more enthusiastic than the others, many even tried to talk him out of it. On April 4, 1866, Dmitry Karakozov made an unsuccessful attempt on the life of Tsar Alexander II at the gates of the Summer Garden in St Petersburg. As the Tsar was leaving, Dmitry rushed forward to fire. The attempt was thwarted by Osip Komissarov, a peasant-born hatter's apprentice, who jostled Karakozov's elbow just before the shot was fired. Contemporary monarchists argued that Komissarov's action proved the people's love for their tsar, while contemporary radicals and later Soviet historians argued that Komissarov's involvement in the event was either an accident or an outright government fabrication. Komissarov was ennobled and given a generous allowance, but proved to be an embarrassment to the government due to his boorishness and incoherence and had to be politely removed to the countryside. Karakozov tried to flee instead of using the second cartridge in his double-barrelled gun, but was easily caught by the guards. He kept one hand in his jacket. It was revealed later to be holding morphine and strychnine to kill himself and prussic acid to disfigure his face. Alexander asked him "What do you want?" "Nothing, nothing," he replied. He was taken to the Peter and Paul Fortress. Dmitry begged for forgiveness and converted to Russian Orthodoxy. The Supreme Criminal Court sentenced him to death by hanging and he was executed in St. Petersburg on September 3, 1866. Ten of his accomplices were sentenced to hard labor, another 25 were acquitted. As a result of the assassination attempt, the Tsar punished St Petersburg University. Students could no longer form any kind of organization, no matter how harmless (Ishutin's organization had officially been to set up sewing cooperatives). They were subjected to constant surveillance [etc.] [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        "Dardanellen" originales Ölgemälde auf Malpappe ca. 25x38cm; unten links signiert; unten rechts bezeichnet und datiert "29.5.1891" [Maße im dekorativen und blattvergoldeten Holzrahmen 37x50cm]

      . Carl Wuttke studierte von 1871 bis 1873 an der Kunstakademie in Berlin, 1873 bei Angelo II. Quaglio (1829-1890) in München und von 1877 bis 1878 bei Eugen Dücker in Düsseldorf. Er ging 1874 zu Fuß nach Italien, wo er bis 1876 blieb, und bereiste auch später vielfach Italien einschließlich Sardinien und Sizilien, wo viele seiner Bilder entstanden, außerdem 1880 Andalusien und 1894 Norwegen. Seit 1885 wohnte er in München. Er besuchte auch für deutsche Maler ungewöhnliche Reiseziele, nämlich Afrika (Algerien, Ägypten, Sudan), den Sinai und 1893 die USA. 1897-99 unternahm er eine Weltreise, die ihn 1898 nach China und Japan führte. Aus dem Fernen Osten lieferte er Bilder für Kaiser Wilhelm II., die im Silbersaal des Berliner Schlosses aufgehängt wurden. Seine Landschaften sind oft mit Genreszenen belebt. In den früheren Jahren widmete er sich der Wiedergabe feiner Beleuchtungsnuancen, entwickelte aber auch schon einen Hang zur grellen Buntheit, die sein Werk später mehr bestimmte. Seine Malweise wirkt spontan und flüchtig, ohne daß er sich wie die Secessionisten ganz der Aufgabe der Form überließ, weshalb er auch zum "vorimpressionistischen Stil" gerechnet wird.

        Middlemarch

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons,, 1871?-2. A Study of Provincial Life. 4 volumes, octavo (172 × 114 mm). Contemporary tan half calf, black morocco labels, raised bands decorated in gilt and blind, rolls in blind to boards, all edges speckled red. Armorial bookplate to each pastedown, contemporary or near-contemporary ink stamp to title pages and a few upper margins. A couple of small wormholes to joints, head of spine of Vol. 3 a little chipped, minor rubbing and scuffing to boards and spines, the occasional spot to contents but overall bright and fresh. An excellent set. First edition in book form of George Eliot's masterpiece, the title-pages showing the line "The Right of Translation is Reserved" at foot. In its slow gestation, the book grew too long for the traditional three-decker format. It was Lewes who suggested to Blackwood that, on the model of Victor Hugo's Les Misérables, it should be serialised in eight parts at two-monthly intervals, and published in book form in four volumes.
