'Sir Henry Alexander Wickham (May 29, 1846 – September 27, 1928) was an explorer, author, plant collector and planter, and a pioneer of the British and Colonial rubber industry in the 19th century. He was responsible for gathering 70,000 seeds from Brazil's rubber-bearing tree, Hevea brasiliensis, in 1876. These he accompanied to the Kew's Royal Botanic Gardens from where seedlings were dispatched to Malasia, Africa, Batavia, and other tropical destinations, thus dooming the Amazonian rubber boom. As a direct result Malaya (now Malaysia) was soon to become the biggest producer of rubber. An important and rare text - the first we have seen in 10 years - let alone with such an inscription.

Large Quarto (29.5 x 23.5 cm. 11.5 x 9.25 in.) Color illustrated and printed wraps. Cotton stitched. [8] p. [6] color plates. Publisher's advertisement; "Juvenile Classics from the Rutherford Park Press. Beautifully illustrated in oil colors" with complete series list and Copyright 1872 by R. Shugg & Co. printed on on rear wrap. Overall toning, edge tears- archivally repaired. The stitched binding is exposed with traces of gummed residue, indicating a later repair. Cock Robin is one of the two titles in the 'Merry Christmas Series' from the Juvenile Classics, and although R. Shugg & Co. published another version of the story with silhouette illustrations, this is the only issue of the colored Quarto edition. The six chromolithograph plates are richly printed in multiple colors from as many as twelve stones to create the lively and vibrant illustrations. Although based on the traditional Nursery Rhyme the arrangement of the text is unique and differs from that of the 1744 edition of Tom Thumb's Pretty Song Book- the first printed reference to the rhyme. In this rare Shugg edition every one of the helpful birds and beasts are present- just appearing in different order. This is a scarce survival. There are no copies listed or documented, and the OCLC shows only one library holding, which is at Yale University. In addition there is very little known about the firm of R. Shugg & Co. beyond an obsure directory listing: Shugg, Richard; listed in New York City directories as an engraver between at least 1858 and 1868; in 1869 listed with the term, "books" in 1870 the directory contains an entry for R. Shugg & Co. (LOC). There are no references in Opie, Pritchard, Osborne or Cotsen to this work. The Death of Cock Robin is a traditional English folk song/Nursery rhyme with suggested origins dating back centuries and a colorful list of royal, mythologic and political associations from Norse Gods, William II of England, Robert Walpole and Robin Hood.

        Picturesque America; or, The Land We Live In

      New York: D. Appleton and Company,, 1872?-4. A delineation by pen and pencil of the mountains, rivers, lakes, forests, water-falls, shores, cañons, valleys, cities, and other picturesque features of our country. With Illustrations on Steel and Wood, by Eminent American Artists. 2 volumes, quarto (312 × 239mm). Publisher's brown hard-grain full morocco, decorative blind-tooled spines, elaborate floriate borders on sides, all edges gilt, white moiré endpapers, Steel-engraved frontispieces and vignette titles, 45 steel-engraved plates, numerous wood-engraved illustrations in the text. A little rubbing to extremities otherwise a very good set in the publisher's de luxe binding. First edition of this monumental work of celebratory Americana, edited by the American Romantic poet William Cullen Bryant. The majority of the superb plates were engraved by Robert Hinshelwood, a Scottish engraver who emigrated to America in 1835 where he established a considerable reputation for his work on landscapes. His painstaking and highly detailed work was much appreciated not only by the publishing houses that employed him, such as Appleton's and Harper's, but also by the Continental Bank Note Company who for a time employed him producing plates for currency. In her recent study of Picturesque America, the historian of American graphic arts, Sue Rainey, notes that the book "enabled Americans, after the trauma of the Civil War, to construct a national self-image based on reconciliation between North and South and incorporation of the West" (Creating Picturesque America, 2001, p. xiii).

Fine copy. ---- Norman 494; Garrison-Morton 2483. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE, very rare. "Cohn's three papers, published in the journal that he founded and edited, are among the seminal works of bacteriology. The first paper (part I), originally published in 1872, effectively initiated the science: it contained Cohn's new system of bacteria classification, in which he distinguished four groups of bacteria based on their constancy of external form and linked this constancy to certain physiological phenomena. The second paper (part II) announced Cohn's discovery of thermoresistant spores produced by certain bacteria, which could survive even prolonged intense heat in a sealed container; this discovery explained what had long been a puzzling anomaly, and dealt a convincing blow to the doctrine of spontaneous generation." (Norman 494). A third part was published in 1876. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Cosima Wagner geb. Liszt").

      [Eckersdorf, Schloß] "Fantaisie", 21. VI. 1872. - 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An eine "Verehrteste Frau", die sie hatte treffen wollen. - Cosima und Richard Wagner wohnten von April bis August des Jahres in Schloß Fantaisie, das sich im Besitz von Herzog Alexander II. von Württemberg befand. "Aus zu grosser Rücksicht gegen den, allerdings sehr angegriffenen, Gesundheitszustandes, ihres Onkels, sagte uns Frau Ritter [.], dass Sie sich unten in Fantaisie, an dem Tag den Sie erwähnen, befänden, und als wir hierauf Sie aufzusuchen gingen, waren Sie zu unsrem grössten Bedauern schon fortgefahren. Ich bat Frau Ritter uns sehr zu entschuldigen, aber es will mir scheinen dass sie Sie nicht mehr angetroffen hat, und so ergreife ich denn freudig die Gelegenheit die Sie mir selbst freundlich bieten, um Ihnen Entschuldigungen und Bedauern herzlich auszudrücken, und zugleich auch die Versicherung dass mein Mann mit grossem Vergnügen Herrn Polko anhören wird, wenn dieser in ruhiger Zeit nach Bayreuth kommt [.]". - Am 22. Mai hatte die Grundsteinlegung des Bayreuther Festspielhauses stattgefunden; am 15. Juni hatte Wagner mit den letzten Arbeiten zur Orchesterskizze des III. Aktes der "Götterdämmerung" begonnen.
