        Alice's Adventures in Wonderland; [together with:] Through the Looking-Glass and What Alice Found There.

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1866 & 1872 - 2 works, octavo. Original red cloth, spines lettered in gilt, triple gilt fillets to covers with gilt vignette centrepieces, blue endpapers, gilt edges. Housed in a custom red half-morocco bookform box with red cloth sides, spine lettered in gilt. Adventures in Wonderland lightly rolled, spine darkened, loss at head of spine repaired with the "A" of "Alice" and part of first three letters of "Adventures" relettered, front hinge cracked, a little shaken, some light foxing to contents with a few page corners lightly creased, short closed tear at foot of p. 91. Through the Looking-Glass lightly rolled, extremities a little rubbed, a few markings to cloth, rear hinge split and front hinge starting, very minor foxing to initial and final leaves. Box a little rubbed. Overall a very good set. Frontispieces and 90 illustrations by John Tenniel. First published editions. The copies of the novelist Richard Adams, with his bookplate to the front free endpapers. Adams uses a quotation from Through the Looking Glass, alongside a quotation from Shakespeare, as the heading of the Epilogue to Watership Down: "He was part of my dream, of course – but then I was part of his dream, too." Adams drew parallels between his own and Carroll's works, due to his annoyance at the debate over the intended readership age of Watership Down. Adams stated that a work of fiction should be "first and foremost, a work of artistic integrity, by its subjects and merits appealing to readers of all ages, including children", going on to say that "the two 'Alice' books probably head the list here, with 'The Wind in the Willows' in honourably high place" (Adams, in Blishen, p. 163). Adams used the revenues from his highly successful novels to develop a substantial book collection, including many high spots of English literature. For these copies, Adventures in Wonderland is the first published edition, the second overall: the book was originally printed in Oxford at the Clarendon Press in June 1865, but was suppressed when Dodgson heard that the book's illustrator was dissatisfied with the quality of the printing. He recalled the few pre-publication copies he had sent out to his friends and donated them to hospitals, where most perished. Only 23 of those original "1865 Alices" are now extant, mostly in institutional holdings, thus creating one of the most famous black tulips of book collecting. The book was entirely reset by Richard Clay for the present authorized Macmillan edition, the earliest edition that can be realistically obtained. Although dated 1866, the edition was in fact ready by November 1865, in time for the Christmas market, and was published in a print run of 4,000 copies. The copy of Through the Looking-Glass is the first edition; like its predecessor, it was published for the Christmas market and bears the following year's date in its imprint. It was actually published in December 1871, in an edition of 9,000 copies. Williams, Madan, Green and Crutch 46; Printing and the Mind of Man 354; Richard Adams, Some Ingredients of Watership Down, in The Thorny Paradise, Writers on Writing for Children, edited by Edward Blishen.

        The Life of Samuel Johnson. Including his tour to the Hebrides, correspondence with Mrs. Thrale, &c. &c. With numerous additions by John Wilson Croker. Revised and enlarged under his direction by John Wright.

      London: Bell & Daldy, 1872 - 10 volumes, octavo (185 x 122 mm). Contemporary tree half calf, raised bands to spines, tan morocco labels, decorations and titles to compartments in gilt, single rule to sides in gilt, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. Spine ends and tips a little rubbed. An excellent set. With frontispieces and occasional illustrations. Engraved frontispieces and title vignettes, 13 engraved plates, 10 folding facsimile plates. An attractively bound set of James Boswell's classic work. First published in 1831, Irish statesman John Wilson Croker's edition contains Boswell's Tour to the Hebrides, first published in 1785, along with Johnson's letters with Hester Thrale. It was "vindictively attacked by Macaulay in the Edinburgh Review, but. remained the best edition until superseded by the work of George Birkbeck Hill" (ODNB). Bookseller and published John Wright (d.1844) edited the ninth and tenth volumes. The immense task of compiling the thousands of notes Boswell had recorded on "the great man's talk, habits and opinions" was begun after Johnson's death in 1784. Made up of trifling incidents as well as the significant events in Johnson's life, the work remains a masterpiece of portraiture. Boswell's reputation was further enhanced by the discovery in the early part of the 20th century of the Boswell Papers, which were stored in the Malahide Castle of Ireland for generations. What resulted from this discovery was the revelation of Boswell as an extraordinary personality in his own right; a far more complex, eccentric genius than the mere recorder of Johnson's conversations.

        ALBERT N'YANZA, GREAT BASIN OF THE NILE, AND EXPLORATIONS OF THE NILE SOURCES

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1872. A very early edition, one of the earliest in one volume format. With 34 illustrations, including 12 full-page plates and with a map printed in colours. 8vo, very handsomely presented in a contemporary binding of three-quarter red morocco over red pebbled cloth covered boards, the spine with gilt stippled raised bands multi-ruled in gilt, additional gilt work at the head and tail, gilt lettering in one compartment, endpapers and page edges marbled. xxvii, 499 pp. A fine and very handsome copy in all, internally unusually bright and fresh, free of foxing and very clean, the binding sturdy and very well preserved, the spine bright and with very little evidence of age or use. A VERY HANDSOME COPY OF THIS HIGHLY IMPORTANT WORK. This is Sir Samuel Baker's account of his discovery of the last great source of the Nile, Speke and Grant having established Lake Victoria N'yanza as the source of the White Nile and Bruce discovering the source of the Blue. The waters of Victoria N'yanza flow into the basin of Albert N'yanza, which Speke and Grant were not permitted to visit, and the latter adds the accumulation of its watershed to the former to create the great White Nile, flowing massively from Albert N'yanza. The importance of the debate over the source of the Nile, combined with Baker's very readable writing style, made his books enormously popular, with the result that they were reprinted a great many times over the years.

        The expresssion of the emotion in man and animals

      John Murray. In-8°, pp. VI, 374, 4, 7 tavole f.t in eliotipia di cui 3 ripiegate, 21 illustrazioni nel testo, legatura in tela editoriale verde con titolo in oro al dorso e cornice a secco ai piatti. Prima edizione in seconda tiratura riconoscibile dall'errore di pagina 208 che reca la parola 'that' scritta erroneamente 'htat' e a pagina 104 nell'ultima riga vi è la scritta 'In several languages of Europe' invece di 'In all the languages of Europe'. Il saggio di Darwin, L'espressione delle emozioni nell'uomo e negli altri animali uscì un anno dopo l'Origine dell'uomo, nel 1872 ed ebbe un immediato successo di pubblico. Agli inizi del Diciannovesimo secolo, la teoria psicologica predominante era l'associazionismo: la mente è una tabula rasa sino a quando non riceve delle impressioni dai sensi; queste, depositandosi nella memoria e associandosi fra loro, vanno a costituire la nostra vita mentale. Darwin, invece, tentò di spiegare i meccanismi cognitivi animali e umani, estendendo la teoria dell'evoluzione per selezione naturale ai substrati biologici della cognizione. Si trattava di un programma scientifico interdisciplinare completamente nuovo che nel Novecento porterà alla nascita e allo sviluppo dell'etologia e delle neuroscienze. Nel saggio, l'autore fornisce dei dati atti a dimostrare che le espressioni dell'uomo, come degli altri animali, sono innate, sono un semplice prodotto dell'evoluzione, per cui molte espressioni che denotano paura, rabbia, stupore si ritrovano invariate non solo in uomini di diversa estrazione culturale o appartenenti a civiltà diverse, ma anche, in primati non umani o in altri animali; il fatto che il riso, ad esempio, sia molto simile nell'uomo e nello scimpanzé testimonia un'origine comune fra le due specie Ma anche dal punto di vista metodologico il libro è di una sorprendente modernità: il primo a fare ricorso estesamente alla fotografia per scopi scientifici e il primo a basarsi su sondaggi prestampati, pratica ormai comune negli studi di psicologia. All'epoca le illustrazioni fotografiche venivano inserite nelle pagine del libro con un procedimento lungo che faceva lievitare i costi di pubblicazione. Darwin cercò tra i vari fotografi londinesi suggerimenti e metodi alternativi per riprodurre le fotografie e si ricordò di aver posato per un ritratto nel 1868 per il fotografo Ernest Edwards. Edwards aveva sviluppato un metodo di riproduzione fotomeccanica detto eliotipia che a differenza delle comuni stampe fotografiche permetteva la produzione in serie delle immagini che potevano così essere rilegate direttamente con le pagine del testo. L'uso dell'eliotipia riduceva di molto i costi di produzione e permise a Darwin di includere un numero senza precedenti di tavole fotografiche e soprattutto di non affidarsi ad artisti che copiassero a mano le fotografie su lastre litografiche. Si scopre qui il Darwin della piena maturità, per metà scienziato e per metà filosofo, innovatore rivoluzionario eppure cauto, sempre attento a fondare su basi empiriche più che salde le sue speculazioni.

        Mountaineering in the Sierra Nevada

      Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1872. Signed original edition. Leather bound. VG, Rebound using original marbled paper on new boards, 3/4 leather light restoration to extreme edges of endpaper with signature and inscription. Gilt tooling and applied gilt-lettered black leather title and author labels within the compartments. Signed on original front flyleaf by Clarence King to "Dear Emmons" (Samuel Franklin Emmons) who was a member of the expedition.. Period rebind with burgundy leather, gilt tooling and titles on spines, original marbled paper on covers. 292 pp. with no illustrations. TEG. Two contemporary calling cards laid in, one of Mr. Samuel Franklin Emmons, to whom the book is inscribed. The story of the Whitney Survey Party, of which Clarence King was a member. In 1864, the party undertook the first extensive exploration of what is now known as the High Sierras. This is the original 1872 edition of Clarence King's classic work about that journey, "which some have described as the first real literature of the Sierra. It is adventure writing at its best. King's mountain climbing descriptions are spine-tingling (and more than a little exaggerated) but they still provide strong impressions and colorful descriptions of the Sierra Nevada following the gold rush." - GoodReads. His account includes descriptions of the range, the forest, Mount Tyndall, the Newtys of Pike, Yosemite's walls, Mt. Shasta, Mt. Whitney, the people of the Sierras, and more. King was one of the earliest of the Sierra mountaineers, and Mt. Clarence King is named after him. Scarce, and a unique association copy.

        How I found Livingstone; travels, adventures and discoveries in Central Africa; including four months residence with Dr. Livingstone.

      London, Sampson Low, Marston, Low and Searle, 1872.Thick 8vo. Original brown pictorial cloth (new endpapers). With tipped-in albumen photograph portrait, 6 maps (4 folding), 25 woodengraved illustrations and 28 woodengraved plates. XXIII,736; 8 pp.First edition. - The quest to recover David Livingstone is one of the most famous travel adventures in history. After finding Livingstone in Ujiji Stanley failed to receive the welcome he expected. Resentful that an unknown American adventurer had found Livingstone where others had failed, many refused to believe Stanley's story and it was only when Livingstone's family produced unimpeachable evidence that Stanley had indeed found the missionary that attitudes began to change. Queen Victoria received Stanley at Baltimoral, and the Royal Geographical Society originally suspicious of his claims, awarded him its gold medal. Stanley's narrative, How I found Livingstone, published later that year, became an inmediate bestseller (Howgego IV, p.873). Dr. Livingstone, I presume ?.

      London: John Murray, 1872 - Octavo. Original green ribbed-grain cloth, gilt titles to spine, frames and central vignette blocked in blind to covers, brown coated endpapers. Contemporary ownership inscription of Dr Alexander Goodall, assistant surgeon aboard HMS Antelope, an iron paddle-sloop based on the West coast of Africa, to front free endpaper and half-title. Spine gently rolled, rubbing to extremities, minor wear to tips, a couple of faint marks to covers, top edge dust toned, front inner hinge cracked but holding, text block slightly shaken, occasional foxing; a very good copy. Folding diagram facing page 91. Sixth edition, third issue, marked as the "thirteenth thousand" on the title page. The sixth edition is the last lifetime edition. Darwin continually made revisions to his text; this edition featuring a new chapter, chapter VII, and a glossary by W. S. Dallas. "The edition was aimed at a wider public and printed in smaller type. giving the general impression of a cheap edition, which at 7s. 6d, it was". It is also the first edition of The Origin of Species to feature the word "evolution"; the term was first used by Darwin in The Descent of Man, published in 1871. This edition was subsequently reprinted unchanged from stereos in 1872 and again in 1873. The final issue is dated 1876; stereos of this issue were used for the very many issues which followed, from 1878 to 1929, continuing to include the summary of differences and the historical sketch.

        The Basic Outline of Universology. An Introduction to the Newly Discovered Science of the Universe; its Elementary Principles; and the First States of their Development in the Special Sciences. Together with Preliminary Notices of Alwato, the Newly Discovered Scientific Universal Language, Resulting from the Principles of Universology

      Dion Thomas, New York 1872 - An attempt at universal philosophy, bringing together language, music, mathematics, and religious (as well as anti-religious) thought. This was Andrews's most ambitious (or at least most all-encompassing) work, and includes the first introduction of his invented language, "Alwato," which was to be the linguistic analogue to his universally integrated philosophy. Combining elements of spiritualism, individualist anarchism, social reform, and hard science, Andrews's Universology is one of the signal works of 19th-century reformist thought; in the words of his biographer Madeleine Stern: "[Pearl Andrews] . felt he stood somewhere between Bakkunin and Swedenborg, holding the key that would unlock all the antithetical mysteries of the universe. Spiritualist and scientist, a moralist without religion, a religionist without morals, he had studied almost all there was to be studied in the world.who, then, was better equipped to serve to the world the philosophy that would reconcile all philosophies, the science that would unite all sciences, the practical way of life that would bring about a federation of all nations? (Stern: The Pantarch, p.106). An unpopular author, an impenetrable prose style, and physical proportions verging on the encyclopedic provide a great framework for rarity, and An Outline of Universology does not disappoint: no copies have appeared in the trade in this cataloguer's memory and OCLC locates fewer than thirty catalogued examples in institutional collections, many of these doubtless compromised copies in circulating libraries. This a remarkably well-preserved example in the original publisher's cloth. Octavo (24.5cm). Publisher's cloth, lettered in gilt on spine with blind-stamped rules to front and rear boards; cxix+764, (2)pp; illus. Final 124pp of text comprises Andrews's "Digested Index"; final two leaves comprise a list of 133 subscribers. Mild wear to board edges and corners, but still a dapper copy, straight, tight and fresh. Contemporary ownership signature ("C.M. Gibbons"), dated February, 1872. [Attributes: First Edition]

        ROUGHING IT

      1872. Fully Illustrated by Eminent Artists. (Issued by Subscription Only...) Hartford, Conn.: American Publishing Company [etc.], 1872. 1 page undated ads. Original black cloth decorated in gilt. First American Edition, first issue, of this very early Twain title -- his fourth major book. In July 1861, as the Civil War was getting underway, Twain headed out west as private secretary to his brother Orion, who had just been appointed Secretary of Nevada Territory; Twain's "account of the continental crossing with Orion is a full-throated celebration of a golden era, of travel, youth, adventure, and America's last frontier" [Kaplan]..~The first issue is identifiable by the proper printing of lines 20-21 on p. 242.; also this copy does have ads on p. [592], which may be a further first-issue point. This is a near-fine copy (only a trace of wear at some edges, slight cracking of the front endpaper); as usual the binding's "gilt" (if actual gilt it is) has oxidized to a copper color. Blanck 3337 (indicating that the British editions may have been issued a few days earlier); McBride p. 18.~In our experience, it is quite difficult to find in decent shape copies of the first three of Twain's books that were issued in this hefty, oversized format (THE INNOCENTS ABROAD in 1869, this title in 1872, and THE GILDED AGE in 1873); it is not that hard to find the fourth and last (A TRAMP ABROAD in 1879).

      - 18 lettres autographes signées 45 In-8 et in-16 1872-1873 Enveloppe d’envoi du cabinet d’autographes Victor Degrange (1952). bon Belle et longue correspondance de Louise Colet à Laferrière, acteur fétiche de Dumas, amant de Virginie Dejazet, qui avait connu la gloire avec la Dame aux Camélias, concernant son ultime tentative pour monter son drame Une Famille en 1793. [Jadis intitulé Madeleine, Louise Colet l'avait ébauché dès 1845 et écrit en 1847. Mais il fut refusé à la Comédie française en 1848 comme trop «dangereux». Elle réussit cependant à le faire publier en feuilleton dans la Presse, du 10 au 16 septembre 1850. L'histoire de ses démarches auprès de Sainte-Beuve et de Rémusat pour le faire jouer a été retracée par Jean Bonnerot dans la Grande Revue en 1934, Un drame inconnu de Louise Colet. La pièce ne fut finalement jamais montée]. Cette correspondance retrace le parcours de Louise Colet pour tenter une ultime fois de faire représenter son drame au Théâtre du Châtelet. Elle entre en contact avec Laferrière et s'appuie sur lui pour tenter de l'imposer. «Il me semble qu'avec votre esprit d'artiste et votre chaleur d'âme, la lecture de ce drame vous causa quelque émotion. Vous comprendrez tout ce que votre talent pourrait faire de cette figure de Brussant, personnifiant le peuple de la grande révolution, par ses douleurs et son patriotisme. Il me semble que l'heure serait bien choisie pour représenter cet ouvrage. Patronné et joué par vous, quelle objection pourrait faire un directeur de théâtre ? La pièce exigerait très peu de frais de décor et de costumes. Aussi je ne forme qu'un voeu, c'est qu'elle vous agrée. Bien sûr qu'en ce cas vous la ferez triompher. Je lis ce soir dans un journal que vous quittez le théâtre Cluny ; mais comme vous m'avez dit le contraire dimanche, c'est à coup sûr le journal qui se trompe. Du reste, quelque soit le théâtre où vous seriez engagé, mon oeuvre vous y suivra ; elle est à vous. Je ne demande qu'à la voir mise en lumière et à voir enfin appréciés par le public mes efforts patients de travail [.]. Par ce que j'écris à ce dernier, vous comprendrez que la réception du drame au Châtelet impliquerait votre engagement. Mlle Duguerret jouerait Madeleine, Paul Deshayes l'amant, Dumaine le père, et vous le mari rôle que vous préférez et que vous avez choisi. J'ai reçu, il y a quelques jours, la réponse du ministre de l'Instruction publique à qui j'avais envoyé, au moment de quitter Paris, le drame d'Une Famille en 1793. Malgré les éloges qu'il donne à cette oeuvre, le ministre décline toute intervention pour la faire jouer. Il m'a renvoyé ici le manuscrit ce qui m'a beaucoup contrariée [.]. J'ai espéré un moment pour mon drame ; mais le changement subit de gouvernement me fait comprendre l'impossibilité de vous en occuper. J'arrive d'un voyage à Milan où je viens de faire imprimer la brochure que Dentu n'a pas osé publier en France. Je vais tenter de l'y envoyer, mais je m'attends à une saisie. Je serai établie d'ici à peu de jours à San Remo, jolie ville italienne de la corniche à une lieue d'ici où j'ai loué un appartement pour y installer mes meubles arrivés de Paris [.]».

Stalin, Mao, Che, Castro -- the icons and monsters of the modern age have all presented themselves as his heirs. Whether he would recognize them as such is quite another matter. Within one hundred years of his death half the world's population was ruled by governments that professed Marxism to be their guiding faith. His ideas have transformed the study of economics, history, geography, sociology and literature" (Wheen). Marx's great polemic was the summation of his quarter of a century of economic studies, mostly at the British Museum. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

        Through the Looking Glass, or What Alice Found There

      London: Macmillan & Co. 1872 - Illustrated by John Tenniel. First edition, first printing, with "wade" instead of "wabe" on p. 21. Finely bound in red morocco to match the original cloth, with five raised bands to spine, lettered in gilt and stamped with illustration of the red queen in a triple-ruled circle to front board and the white queen to rear board, red and black marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. A very good copy with contemporary ownership signature to half-title, small tissue repair to bottom corner of page 95/95, some light toning and scattered soiling to pages, else very clean and bright, in an attractive full leather binding designed to imitate the original cloth decorations. Through the Looking Glass is Lewis Carroll's sequel to his popular children's novel Alice's Adventures in Wonderland (1865). In this story, which represents the child protagonist's journey from adolescence to adulthood, Alice ventures into a fantasy world through the mirror above her fireplace. Just as Alice relies on the imagery of playing cards, Through the Looking Glass is laden with chess imagery; Alice steps into the fantasy world as a white pawn on a giant chess board. While making her way to be crowned queen, she runs into many of Carroll's beloved characters, including Tweedledum and Tweedledee, the Walrus and the Carpenter, and the Red Queen. Additionally, this text employs a mirror motif, with many backward-printed texts and scenarios that appear to be the reverse of scenes from Alice. Throughout the novel, Carroll includes nonsense poetry, including the playful "Jabberwocky." Like Alice, Through the Looking Glass is illustrated by John Tenniel. Carroll originally intended to write this sequel as early as 1866, but had trouble persuading Tenniel to illustrate it. Writer and artist had a somewhat volatile relationship as a result of their mutual perfectionism: just as the true first edition of Alice was suppressed because of unsatisfactory illustrations, Through the Looking Glass's illustrations were heavily edited. Tenniel demanded the removal of a character that was too difficult to illustrate, whereas Carroll replaced Tenniel's "Jabberwock" plate with an image of the White Knight, which was less frightening, as a frontispiece.

        Mountaineering in the Sierra Nevada

      Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1872. Period rebind with burgundy leather, gilt tooling and titles on spines, original marbled paper on covers. 292 pp. with no illustrations. TEG. Two contemporary calling cards laid in, one of Mr. Samuel Franklin Emmons, to whom the book is inscribed. The story of the Whitney Survey Party, of which Clarence King was a member. In 1864, the party undertook the first extensive exploration of what is now known as the High Sierras. This is the original 1872 edition of Clarence King's classic work about that journey, "which some have described as the first real literature of the Sierra. It is adventure writing at its best. King's mountain climbing descriptions are spine-tingling (and more than a little exaggerated) but they still provide strong impressions and colorful descriptions of the Sierra Nevada following the gold rush." - GoodReads. His account includes descriptions of the range, the forest, Mount Tyndall, the Newtys of Pike, Yosemite's walls, Mt. Shasta, Mt. Whitney, the people of the Sierras, and more. King was one of the earliest of the Sierra mountaineers, and Mt. Clarence King is named after him. Scarce, and a unique association copy. VG, Rebound using original marbled paper on new boards, 3/4 leather light restoration to extreme edges of endpaper with signature and inscription. Gilt tooling and applied gilt-lettered black leather title and author labels within the compartments. Signed on original front flyleaf by Clarence King to "Dear Emmons" (Samuel Franklin Emmons) who was a member of the expedition.

        Krupp'sche Gussstahlfabrik

      - Six albumen prints from wet collodion negatives (each 430 x 430 mm.), each mounted on stiff card stock panels (each panel measuring 620 x 430 mm.), joined together with the orig. linen, with the lithographed title at foot of the two middle panels. Preserved in the orig. green cloth-backed board portfolio, ties gone. [Essen: F. Krupp, ca. 1872-73]. A magnificent and rare photographic panorama of the Krupp Steel Works in Essen, consisting of six albumen prints, each mounted on paper board panels, measuring altogether 430 x 2480 mm. The industrial steel manufacturer Friedrich Krupp AG was the largest company in Europe at the beginning of the 20th century. One of the most powerful business dynasties in Europe, for 400 years Krupp flourished as the premier weapons manufacturer of Germany. From the Thirty Years' War until the end of the Second World War, they produced everything from guns and cannons, battleships, U-boats, tanks, and hundreds of other products. "In 1861, one of the most remarkable figures in German industrial history, Alfred Krupp, commissioned his far relative Hugo van Werden [(1836-1911)] to learn photography in a studio in Hannover then well-known for its qualities in depicting industrial products. After a short apprenticeship, van Werden set up the Krupp photographic and lithographic institute which from then on had to deliver all visual materials used for documentation, press releases, and public relations for Krupp's steel company. As early as 1862, on the occasion of the London World Fair, Krupp was able to show and deliver large quantities of photographs of all his products, and the company gained fame for the use of the new medium in advertising?On top of the Krupp stand at the World Fair in London in 1862 there was a large photograph showing the Essen company site. Made of 12 images, it correlated to a recent fashion among manufacturers: showing a bird-like view of their establishment."-Rolf Sachsse in Encyclopedia of 19th-Century Photography, p. 584. In the century prior to the advent of photography, panoramic painting reached a pinnacle of development in which whole buildings were constructed to house 360 degree panoramas, and even incorporated lighting effects and moving elements. Indeed, the career of one of the inventors of photography, Daguerre, began in the production of popular panoramas and dioramas. Shortly after the invention of photography, the desire to show overviews of cities and landscapes prompted photographers to create panoramas. The development of panoramic cameras was a logical extension of the 19th-century enthusiasm for panorama. Because of the high cost of materials and the technical difficulty of properly exposing the plates, Daguerreotype panoramas, especially those pieced together from several plates, are rare. After the advent of wet-plate collodion process, photographers would take anywhere from two to a dozen of the ensuing albumen prints and piece them together to form a panoramic image. This photographic process was technically easier and far less expensive. The history of photography and the modern manufacturing of steel have been interwoven since both came into being in the mid-19th century. Photography of steel mills began about the same time that modern steel making became possible through invention of the Bessemer converter (furnace) in 1855. Photographers have actively engaged this topic ever since. Photographing the steel industry has always presented technical as well as aesthetic challenges, but no challenge was more daunting than that of access. Mere fascination with industrial architecture, the dramatic processes of transforming raw iron ore to finished steel, or the many tasks performed by steel workers, did not entitle a photographer to take pictures of mills. The pioneering German industrialist Alfred Krupp hired Hugo van Werden as the company's first full- time photographer. As an employee, van Werden had unlimited access to take photographs of the factory. Th [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        De Afstamming van den Mensch, en de Seksueele Teeltkeus. [i.e. "The Descent of Man"]. [translated by:] Dr. H. Hartogh Heijs van Zouteveen. 2 vols.

      Felft, Joh. Ijekema, 1872 & 1872. Large8vo. 2 uniform volumes, both in the original red embossed full cloth with gilt lettering to spine. Boards with embossed ornamentation. Extremities with wear, volume 2 with 3 cm long tear to spine. Front hindge of voulme 1 internally reinforced. 4x3 cm of top right corner of half-title in volume 2 cut out, otherwise internally very fine and clean. XII, 536 pp; VII, 540, (3) pp. ¶ The rare first Dutch translation of Darwin' 'Descent of Man' published simultaneously with the English original. Whereas "Origin of Species" established Darwinism as a turning point in nineteenth-century biology "The Descent of Man" helped built a bridge between biology, the social sciences, and the humanities and made Darwinism a broad system of research designs, theoretical principles, and philosophical outlook."The Dutch translation of The Descent appeared practically simultaneously with the English original because Darwin sent it page by page to the translator Dr. H. Hartough Heys van Zouteveen, himself a scientist of international repute. The translator's annotations were highly regarded in scientific circles". (Acta Historiae Neerlandicae: Studies on the History of The Netherlands VII). Heys returned the commentaries to Darwin and, according to a letter from Darwin, Darwin appreciated these additions and used them in the next edition. (Glick, The Comparative Reception of Darwinism.)In Heys' preface to the translation of the Descent, Heys wrote that Darwin had collected so much evidence to prove his hypothesis that by now it was almost a certainty. To offset the negative feelings brought about by man's descent from the apes, Heys offered the readers a bright perspective for the future Man's brain had developed tremendously since the Middle Ages, he claimed, and if excercised his brain he would develop its quality and power and thus contribute to the perfecting of the human race.Darwin's progress in the Netherland was easy. It came at a moment in which the country was preparing itself, under the leadership of the liberal bourgeoisie, for its take-off into the age of industrial capitalism. Darwin served in this situation as a catalyst for the liberals as well as for the freethinker, helping them to outline their ideas and stance on society."Darwin wrote, in the preface to the second edition, of 'the fiery ordeal through which this book has passed'. He had avoided the logical outcome of the general theory of evolution, bringing man into the scheme, for twelve years, and in fact it had, by that time, been so much accepted that the clamour of the opposition was not strident. He had also been preceded in 1863 by Huxley's Man's place in nature. The book, in its first edition, contains two parts, the descent of man itself, and selection in relation to sex. The word 'evolution' occurs, for the first time in any of Darwin's works, on page 2 of the first volume of the first edition, that is to say before its appearance in the sixth edition of The origin of species in the following year." (Freeman).It was translated into Danish, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Polish, Russian and Swedish in Darwin's lifetime and into ten further languages since.Freeman 1053.
