        Original Signed Carte de visite of Charles Darwin

      Studio of Oscar Gustave Rejlander, London 1871 - Fine. 4 x 2 1/2 inches. Original Carte de visite portrait of an older Charles Darwin in profile by noted Swedish/British photographer and Darwin collaborator (The Expressions of the Emotions in Man and Animals, 1872) Oscar Gustave Rejlander. The portrait is firmly and neatly signed on bottom center beneath the portrait by Darwin by the great man himself, and is signed in full by Rejlander on verso with his London studio address, 1 Albert Mansions, Victoria Street S.W. The carte de visite is also annotated on verso by American theologian Francis Ellingwood Abbot, "Received June 12, 1871 at Toledo, O. from Mr. Darwin in a private letter dated May 27." The Darwin/Abbot correspondence is at Harvard and includes the original letter from Darwin to Abbot in which he mentions sending along the Carte de visite as a token of his esteem and appreciation. "Francis Ellingwood Abbot (1836-1903) was a founder of the Free Religious Association and first editor of the radical journal, the Index. He developed an evolutionary philosophy of science and yearned to free humankind from pre-scientific religions, believing that people could escape the trap of agnosticism by adopting his vision of free religion." As such, Abbot was one of the first influential American supporters of Darwin's then radical ideas. A spectacular artifact in superb condition with exceptional association value and impeccable provenance. Darwin was a photography enthusiast. This is evident not only in his use of photography for the study of Expression and Emotions in Man and Animal, but can be witnessed in his many photographic portraits and in the extensive portrait correspondence that Darwin undertook throughout his lifetime. His close friend and botanist Joseph Dalton Hooker would come to call Darwin?s epistolary exchange of photographic images as his "carte correspondence". Hooker was jokingly lamenting his role as an intermediary for Darwin and his correspondents from around the globe in their exchange of carte-de-visites, or small photographic prints made in large numbers and printed on hard card for ease of exchange. While collecting photographic portraits of friends and relatives was not a pursuit unique to Darwin (the exchange of photographic images was a popular activity for many Victorians), when placed in the context of Darwin?s correspondence more broadly, we can see an interesting trend. When Darwin sent his photograph to a close ally, such as the Harvard botanist Asa Gray, or when he was given a photograph as a token of esteem by a colleague, such as Daniel Oliver at Kew, the image became more than just a physical reminder of likeness. It performed the same function that his correspondence as a whole did for him; it created and reinforced his experimental and scientific network. One of his correspondents was Oscar Rejlander, a well-known London-based photographer born in Sweden who integrated theater, classical art and photographic dexterity in all his work. Rejlander produced a number of photographs for Darwin of various forms of expression, the most famous of which was crying baby, later dubbed by the Victorian press as ?Ginx?s Baby?. Rejlander also took the opportunity to make some portraits of Darwin. These turned out to be, in Darwin?s own estimation, "The best photographs of me". [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The First Flight. (All plain sailing)

      London: J. McQueen, 24 June 1871. Aquatint, printed in colours and finished by hand, by William Summers. 17 1/4 x 30 inches. 21 1/8 x 33 5/8 inches. Second issue of this fine print (first published 21 October 1867) from the 'McQueen's Steeple Chasings' series. A charming period piece. Very much of its time, all the animation in this plate is reserved for the spectators. The jockeys are depicted as completely impassive "there is more animation in a Sovereign's Escort of Life Guards trotting down the Mall on a wet morning than can be found in... Summers' engraving of these supposedly thrilling scenes" (Charles Lane Sporting Aquatints and their Engravers , vol.II, p.76). Lane presents this as a fault, but it is also what gives this image its charm, everything is beautifully observed, and the aquatinting is technically excellent, the landscape is finely realised and the crowd is full of incident but at the centre of the scene are these almost surreal figures passing through as if in a dream. Little is known of either Neville (Lane lists this and one other racing plate by him), or the engraver William Summers. Lane British Racing Prints p.143.

        The Descent of Man, and Selection in Relation to Sex

      London: John Murray,, 1871. In Two Volumes. With Illustrations. 2 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spines gilt, sides with panels blocked in blind, dark blue coated endpapers. Engravings throughout. Cloth a little rubbed at extremities with some small worn spots, spotting to half-titles, joints repaired. An excellent set. First edition, first issue with the errata on the verso of the title leaf of vol. II. Here the word "evolution" appears for the first time in any of Darwin's works, preceding its appearance in the sixth edition of The Origin of Species the following year. Darwin had hoped that one of his supporters might tackle the thorny question of human evolution, but was forced to face the logic of his own theory himself. Darwin deviated from his ostensible subject of mankind to describe sexual selection in the animal kingdom, enabling him to answer those who saw peacock tails as an expression of divine aesthetics. Darwin also set out a definite family tree for humans, tracing their affinity with the Old World monkeys, and laid out his views on the evolutionary origins of morality and religion. "The Descent, understood by Darwin as a sequel to the Origin, was written with a maturity and depth of learning that marked Darwin's status as an élite gentleman of science" (ODNB).

        A Cuvierian principle in palaeontology tested by evidences of an extinct leonine marsupial (Thylacoleo carnifex)

      Taylor & Francis London: Taylor & Francis, 1871. Owen, Richard (1804-92). A Cuvierian principle in palaeontology tested by evidences of an extinct leonine marsupial (Thylacoleo carnifex). Offprint from Philosophical Transactions 161 (1871). [2], 213-266pp. 4 lithographed plates. 275 x 211 mm. Disbound. Very good copy. Inscribed by Owen on the title: ?Prof. Rupert Jones NGS with the author?s best regards.? First Edition, Offprint Issue. Thylacoleo carnifex, or the ?marsupial lion,? was a carnivorous marsupial that lived in Australia between 2 million and 46 thousand years ago; it was first described in 1859 by Owen in his ?On the fossil mammals of Australia, part I? (Phil. Trans. 149: 309-322). Owen classified the extinct animal as a carnivore based on the structure of its lower jaw, but other naturalists, including William Flower and Hugh Falconer, disagreed, and ?the issue of the carnivorousness of Thylacoleo carnifex became one of the bitterest paleontological controversies of the 1860s. Falconer denounced Owen?s line of reasoning as ?facile? and Owen?s Darwinian foes, in particular the zoologist W. H. Flower, at the time conservator of the Hunterian Museum, joined in the highly personal attack . . . Owen yielded nothing, turning the controversy into a test case of Cuvierian functionalism and issuing a separate booklet on the controversy: A Cuvierian Principle in Palaeontology, Tested by Evidences of an Extinct Leonine Marsupial (Thylacoleo carnifex)? (Rupke, pp. 86-87). It appears that this ?separate booklet? is in fact the offprint of the fourth part of Owen?s ?On the fossil mammals of Australia? (Phil. Trans. 161 [1875]: 213-266), as this is the title that appears on the leaf following the offprint title-page, and the pagination of the separate offprint is identical to that of the article in the Philosophical Transactions. Owen presented this copy to British paleontologist Thomas Rupert Jones (1811?1911), the editor of Lartet and Christy?s Reliquiae Aquitanicae (1875), which recorded the discovery of Cro-Magnon man. Rupke, Richard Owen, Victorian Naturalist, pp. 85-87.

        Anglo-American Atlantic yacht race of 1870. Start of the Yachts Dauntless and Cambria from Queenstown for New York on the 4th. July

      London: Published by Wm. Foster, 25 May, 1871. Tinted lithograph, finished by hand, drawn on stone by Dutton after "a painting by R.L. Stopford", sheet size: 20 x 27 3/8 inches. Fine condition. A dramatic scene illustrating the start of the Trans-Atlantic race of 1870, by the celebrated maritime painter Thomas Dutton. Thomas Dutton was one of the greatest nineteenth century maritime painters. His emotive works display a genuine love of the sea and his careful depiction of detail provides a wonderful record of the important vessels of the age. The 108-foot Cambria, owned by James Ashbury of the Royal Harwich Yacht Club , raced the Dauntless, owned by James Gordon Bennett of the New York Yacht Club, from Queenstown, Ireland, to New York on 4 July 1870. The Cambria arrived first, making the crossing in 23 days, 5 hours 17 minutes and 15 seconds, just under two hours ahead of the Dauntless. After recuperating for 11 days the Cambria took part in the first true Americas Cup race. She competed against a field of 23 American yachts, and lost to the Magic by 40 minutes, finishing in 10th place overall. Dutton expertly captures the exciting moment of the start of the Trans-Atlantic race, and shows the great beauty and style of this remarkable ship.

        OUR LAND AND LAND POLICY, NATIONAL AND STATE [wrapper title].

      San Francisco. . 1871 - 48pp. plus folding colored map. Original printed wrappers. Text block stitched together and loosely laid into wrappers, and apparently never bound in. Wrappers a bit soiled and worn. Map with a long closed tear, with no loss. One text leaf torn in outer margin, not affecting text. Overall, about very good. In a cloth chemise. Henry George's rare first book, putting forth in early form some of the ideas for which the economist and reformer became famous. George holds that the private ownership of land is injurious to society as a whole, and argues that public lands should not be given in large grants to railroads, speculators, or corporations, but to actual settlers and workers themselves, who need the land and natural resources to create wealth. "With tremendous power and farsightedness, he attacks the railroads and land grants, boldly giving names and specific cases of wrongdoing. The especially prepared map shows the immense extent of the 'Railroad Reservations' in California" - Howell. George also calls for taxes on land values and the abolition of other taxes that he sees as injurious to workers and investors as well. Much of the text relates specifically to land issues in California, often involving mining and railroads. An important and rare work of American economic thought. HOWES G105, "aa." COWAN, p.233. HOWELL 50:482.

        Middlemarch. A Study of Provincial Life

      Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1871-2., 1871. FIRST EDITION. 4 volumes, 8vo. Finely bound in recent half tan calf with title labels to spines, over marbled sides endpapers. Internally clean, save for the odd occasional spot. Bound with half titles, a rarity these days. Altogether a lovely copy in a very attractive binding. The original 4 volume edition, cloth covers bound in at the rear. Something of a bibliographical rarity, according to Carter only 366 copies of this edition were issued in 4 volumes, (out of a first edition run of 4000) making them measurably more scarce than the 8 volume parts edition more commonly seen. Set in the 1830s in Middlemarch, a fictional provincial town in England, which was based on the midlands' Coventry. Widely seen as Eliot's greatest work, it is almost unanimously acclaimed as one of the great novels of the Victorian era. Listed in 'The Novel 100' (Burt, 2004).

        The Mammals of Australia, illustrated by Miss Harriett Scott, and Mrs Helena Forde

      Sydney,: Thomas Richards,, 1871.. Folio, with 16 handcoloured lithograph plates; in the original dark brown printed wrappers with cloth spine, a very good copy. Perhaps the most charming of all Australian natural history books, here in its exceptionally rare coloured version. This is the only example that we have ever handled of the rare issue with original handcolouring as described by Ferguson (11248). The colouring is finely executed and was very probably carried out by the illustrators Helena Forde and Harriett Scott themselves, who were responsible for the delightful suite of illustrations.This was Krefft's most important work. The German-born zoologist was curator of the Australian Museum between 1864 and 1874. His scientific research was highly regarded by European colleagues, and 'some of his observations have not been surpassed and can no longer be equalled because of the spread of settlement' (ADB).Harriett Scott and her sister Helena Forde were both professional artists specialising in natural history illustration. They had been educated by their father at Ash Island near Newcastle, and the colonial artist Conrad Martens was one of their drawing teachers. 'Harriett and Helena executed almost all the art work for natural history publications in Sydney. Mammals of Australia was exhibited in the 1870 Sydney Intercolonial Exhibition... the jurors report noted that the works were "principally lithographs of snakes and native animals, which were drawn on stone by Mrs. Forde and Miss Harriett Scott, and are deserving of very high commendation"...' (Dictionary of Australian Artists).Exceptional natural history artists, the Scott sisters worked mainly in watercolour and pen-and-ink, and regularly received commissions from leading colonial and international natural scientists. Although both struggled financially to survive as freelance artists, they were enormously gifted and their interpretation of the Australian flora and fauna is exceptionally beautiful.A beautiful and rare example of a major nineteenth-century Australian illustrated book.

First edition. The Bridgewater Treatises, No. VII. *William Kirby (1759-1850), was an original member of the Linnean Society, a Fellow of the Royal Society, and co-founder (in 1833) of the Entomological Society of London. He wrote the first scientific treatise on English bees, and has been described as the founder of English entomology. The Bridgewater Treatises were published at the behest of the Rev. Francis Henry Egerton (1756-1829), the eighth and last Earl of Bridgewater, who left instructions in his will providing for the publication of a thousand copies each of a series of new works written to demonstrate 'the power, wisdom, and goodness of God as manifested in the creation.' The authors were selected by the President of the Royal Society. Known collectively as the Bridgewater treatises, the works were written and published between 1833 to 1840, and were later reprinted in Bohn's Scientific Library. The Earl of Bridgewater was an eccentric, known for giving dinner parties for dogs, at which the animals were dressed in the fashions of the day, including miniature shoes. (The Earl himself had an extensive collection of shoes, and wore a new pair every day. He lined up his worn pairs of shoes in rows, and used them to measure the passing of time).

        Sanso zukai [trans.: Illustrated Guide for Sericulture]

      16 full-page woodcuts & 17 woodcuts in the text. 29 folded leaves. Large 8vo, orig. yellow wrappers, stitched as issued, orig. block printed title label on upper cover. N.p.: 1871. First edition of this finely illustrated guide to sericulture. In this period of Japan's history, the exportation of silk and tea leaves accounted for seventy per cent of the country's revenues. The various local governmental authorities were constantly searching for improved methods of increasing both production and quality of silk. The sponsor of the present work was the Hikone fiefdom near Kyoto, an area known for its quality silks. This book is a complete introduction to sericulture. The author describes the silkworm, incubation and rearing of worms, cocoons, selection of eggs for reproduction, and diseases which could affect the silkworm. The authors give opinions regarding the best species of mulberry trees for any climate and very exact instructions regarding air circulation, temperature, etc. The first section is devoted to the mulberry tree and methods of cultivating them. The various steps in their propagation are well-illustrated in the first series of twenty woodcuts. The remainder of the volume deals with sericulture. The remaining woodcuts depict techniques of keeping rooms warm enough to enhance hatching, feeding the silkworms with mulberry leaves, silkworm cocoons in their nests, the silkworm moth emerging from its cocoon, etc. Fine copy. .

        POETICAL WORKS OF ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING COMPLETE. WITH A MEMOIR

      New York: James Miller, 1871. 2 volumes. Very early collection of the poetry issued in America. Portrait frontispiece in first volume. 8vo, very handsomely bound in the publisher’s best binding of full dark morocco, the spines with raised bands stopped and bordered in blind, compartments with blind tooled designs and central ornamental tooling, lettered and paneled in gilt in two compartments, the covers with well designed triple-lined inner and outer panels in blind, the inner with corner tools and enclosing a handsomely tooled device at the center of the covers, gilt stippled board edges, all edges gilt, marbled end-leaves. 439; 433 pp. An excellent and very handsome copy in essentially pristine condition. SCARCE EARLY PRINTING HANDSOMELY BOUND IN THE PUBLISHER’S BEST FULL MOROCCO BINDINGS. Rarely encountered in this fine condition. Browning’s poetry was already critically and publicly accepted while she was alive; for example, she was considered Wordsworth’s successor as poet laureate upon his death. However, Browning’s more advanced ideas may appeal to readers of this generation. Browning was sympathetic to the ideas of Mary Wollstonecraft, politically progressive in her views and in the literary realm, transformed poetic style and content. Thus, her work is by no means a mere curiosity but rather representative of the highest literary and intellectual achievements. This copy has a fine Memoir included at the
