        Das Kapital, Kritik der politischen Oekonomie. Vol. I: Der Produktionsprocess des Kapitals. Vol. II: Der Zirkulationsprocess des Kapitals (edited by Friedrich Engels).

      Verlag Otto Meissner, Hamburg 1872 - Das Kapital, Kritik der politischen Oekonomie. Vol. I: Der Produktionsprocess des Kapitals. Hamburg: Verlag Otto Meissner, 1872. [2], 830 pp. Vol. II: Der Zirkulationsprocess des Kapitals. Edited by F. Engels. Hamburg: Verlag Otto Meissner, 1885. xxvii [1], 526, [2] pp. 8vo (207 x 137 mm). Both volumes uniformly bound in contemporary half calf, spines with 4 raised bands, gilt decoated and gilt lettered (vol. I with head of spine partially chipped, light rubbing to extremities, rubbing to spine of vol. II), marbled edges. Text of vol. I with light marginal browning, scattered foxing and frequent pencil markings, vol. II little age-toned only and with no visible foxing. Provenance: bookplates of unknown owner to front pastedowns, one with motto "Aut mors aut vita decora". A very good set, rarely found in unform bindings. ---- PMM 359 (first ed. vol. I only); Rubel 633, 635-636 - SECOND EDITION of Vol. I and FIRST EDITION of Vol. II OF ONE OF THE MOST INFLUENTIAL BOOKS OF THE MODERN ERA. Only the first edition of vol. I was published in Marx's lifetime; his friend and supporter Friedrich Engels edited and published volume II in 1885 and volume III in 1894. "The history of the twentieth century is Marx's legacy. 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, and What Alice Found There

      Lee and Shepard, Boston / Lee, Shepard, and Dillingham, 1872 2018-01-04. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. Tenniel, John. First American edition ('wade' for 'wabe' on p. 21). Professionally rebacked with original backstrip laid down (some loss from edges), new end sheets. Boards lightly rubbed and soiled, pencil name and year ('R.P. Blake 1880') on front flyleaf, a number of illustrations colored with pencil by a young reader, some quite nicely done. 1872 Hard Cover. x, [1]-224 pp. 8vo. The sequel to Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, with fifty illustrations by John Tenniel. This first American edition was released with both red and green cloth (no priority) in the same year as the Macmillan edition printed in London, and contains the same typo in the Jabberwocky's poem. Our research indicates that the U.S. edition appears less frequently both in the trade and at auction than its British equivalent. Carroll's books about Alice are among the most collected works in modern literature, and have both inspired a number of animated and live actions films (most recently those directed by Tim Burton and featuring Johnny Depp as The Mad Hatter, Helena Bonham Carter as the Red Queen, and Mia

        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.

      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.

        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.

Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!” Lewis Carrol, Through the Looking-Glass ‘Through the Looking Glass’ was published a few years after the success of ‘Adventures in Wonderland’. While it was never as popular as ‘Adventures in Wonderland’ it did include ‘the greatest nonsense poem ever written in the English language’, the “Jabberwocky” (Gardner). It was in this poem that Carroll created playful nonsense words that have become recognizable in English such as “galumphing” and “chortle” While the story itself is timeless, the dozens of Tenniel’s bizarre, cartoon illustrations make this book especially desirable. Tenniel’s illustrations are often considered the best of the ‘Alice’ illustrations.

The engraved title-page and the first and last letterpress pages are slightly tattered, but the book is still in good condition. The binding shows a few wrinkles, stains and small tears.

The author, the journalist and writer Karel Tůma (1843-1917) was a noted political activist who fought for numerous liberal causes. In 1868 he was sentenced to jail for his political editorials. In the present pamphlet, too, his impassioned account of Washington's struggle is closely related to the Czechs' love for freedom, and the dear memory of famous Czech leaders such as Jan Hus, Jiri Žižka, and Jan Amos Komenský. The book is also one of the earliest Czech accounts of Washington's life. The rear wrappers of both volumes feature a description of the progressive aims of the "Osvěta lidu" series. Outside of the Czech Republic, KVK and OCLC show copies of the first volume at the Austrian National Library, British Library, Herder-Institut, Texas A&M, Utah and Yale; the Washington biography is only held by the Czech National Library.

Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun The frumious Bandersnatch!&#148; Lewis Carrol, Through the Looking-Glass &#145;Through the Looking Glass&#146; was published a few years after the success of &#145;Adventures in Wonderland&#146;. While it was never as popular as &#145;Adventures in Wonderland&#146; it did include &#145;the greatest nonsense poem ever written in the English language&#146;, the &#147;Jabberwocky&#148; (Gardner). It was in this poem that Carroll created playful nonsense words that have become recognizable in English such as &#147;galumphing&#148; and &#147;chortle&#148; While the story itself is timeless, the dozens of Tenniel&#146;s bizarre, cartoon illustrations make this book especially desirable.

        La Descendance de l'Homme et la Sélection Sexuelle. [i.e. English: "Descent of Man", Translated by J. J. Moulinié ]. 2 vols.

      Paris, C. Reinwald et Cie, 1872-1873. 8vo. 2 volumes uncut in publisher's original green full cloth with gilt lettering and ornamentation to spines and embossed front and back boards. A stamp to title-pages and very light wear to extremities, internally very fine, clean and fresh. XV, (1), 452, 24 [advertisements] pp.; (8), 494, (2) pp. ¶ First French translation of Darwin's 'Descent of Man'. 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."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 1058

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 ? [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Gaudenzio Marconi Moving nude woman amputated leg Original photo 1872-74c XL181

      1872 - Large original vintage albumen photo Author: Gaudenzio Marconi Year: 1872-74c Size of the photo: 25,2x17,5 cm Cardboard larger Condition: good (see scan) Uno dei più bei nudi della mia personale avventura nella storia della fotografia. L&#146;immagine, possente e allo stesso tempo delicata e commovente, mostra una giovane donna con la gamba sinistra amputata. La foto all&#146;albumina (circa 1871-74) è di Gaudenzio Marconi, pittore fotografo di origini italiane che lavorò a Parigi fino al 1874. Alcune fotografie hanno il potere di evocare storie, e guardando questa ho immaginato che la ragazza abbia perso la gamba durante i combattimenti della Comune di Parigi (1871). Il fotografo la fa posare nuda mostrando il suo coraggio e la sua fiera bellezza. è una foto di nudo di grande potenza espressiva, come poche altre immagini nella storia della fotografia, che fino ad ora era rimasta inedita, e che ho il piacere e l&#146;orgoglio di condividere. Si noti che la modella si appoggia con la mano destra ad un sostegno sul muro, e con la sinistra ad un lungo e sottile bastone, peraltro già presente in altre fotografie di Marconi. One of the most beautiful nudes of my personal adventure in the history of photography. The image, powerful and at the same time delicate and moving, shows a young woman with her left leg amputated. The albumen photo (about 1871-74) is of Gaudenzio Marconi, painter photographer of Italian origin who worked in Paris until 1874. Some photographs have the power to evoke stories, and looking at this, I imagined that the girl has lost her leg during the fighting of the Paris Commune (1871). The photographer makes her pose nude showing his courage and proud beauty. It is a nude photo of great expressive power, like few other images in the history of photography, which until now had remained unpublished, and I have the pleasure and pride to share. Note that the model rests his right hand on the wall for support, and with the left is claimed to a long thin stick, which is already present in other photographs of Marconi. Gaudenzio Marconi (Italy 1841 - Paris 1885) Born in Italy in 1841. We have little information about his short life, but there is no doubt that he played a significant role in the development of artistic photography of the nineteenth century. He arrived in Paris in 1869 and became a photographer of nudes, which provided academic painters and sculptors of the period, such as Auguste Rodin. The nudes by Rodin known as "the Bronze Age" are based on works by Gaudenzio Marconi. His best pictures are dated between 1870 and 1875. In life he was recognized as a photographer of nudes for artists. The classic use of the pose and light, the addition of classical objects or backdrops painted with cherubs and mythological elements is an important feature of his work. He died in Paris in 1885 at the age of 44 years. Like so many other great artists, he never had the good fortune to witness the success of his work. Today his photographs reach remarkable prices in major international auctions.

It contains extended references to the royal income derived from the encomiendas of the Indians in Peru and Mexico. Page 185 notes that an event in Madrid occurred on 27 April 1639. With bookplates. The engraved title-page and the first and last letterpress pages are slightly tattered, but the book is still in good condition. The binding shows a few wrinkles, stains and small tears.

        De l'Electrisation localisée et de son application à la pathologie et à la thérapeutique par courants induits et par courants galvaniques interrompus et continus.

      Paris: J.B. Baillière et Fils, et à Londres, et à Madrid, 1872 - Troisième édition entièrement refondue, fort in-8; xii, 1120p., 3 planches hors texte dont 1 dépliante partiellement coloriée, 255 figures. Reliure d"époque en demi-chagrin rouge à coins, dos à nerfs, plats et gardes marbrés, couvertures imprimées conservées. Bel exemplaire. La première édition de cet ouvrage parut en 1855. Duchenne annonce celle-ci comme étant "presque un nouveau livre", incluant les récents progrès de la pathologie du système nerveux et les nouvelles recherches de l'auteur dans les domaines électro-thérapeutique et électro-physiologique (certaines contestées par des physiciens, principalement Becquerel), ainsi que l'addition d'espèces morbides non encore décrites à la famille des maladies progressives. Natif de Boulogne-sur-Mer, Duchenne utilisa l'électrothérapie à Paris à partir de 1842. Pionnier de la neuro-pathologie, il eut l'idée d'électriser diverses régions du cerveau pour en déduire les localisations et établit la première classification électrophysiologique du système musculaire. L'ouvrage eut une influence scientifique considérable (Morton/Norman 614).
