        The Wonders of the Yosemite Valley, and of California

      Alexander Moore Lee & Shepard, Boston 1872 - 4to, original embossed purple-brown cloth with gilt decoration, illustrated with two wood engraved maps and 10 original photographic plates mounted on stiff paper by John P. Soule, [iii]-xii, 13-[98 ]pp. Spine sunned ends a bit chipped, light rubbing, scattered marginal foxing. Overall very good or better. Considered one of the most attractive early books on Yosemite, this worked contained in its second edition the first appearance of any of John Muir’s writings in a book, although they were anonymous. In this revised edition. Kneeland uses a lot of material from Muir’s scientific reports, and while there is some notion that not enough credit was given to Muir in this book, his name was at least mentioned. Additionally, since John Soul never visited California, some believe that the photographs were taken by John Houseworth or Eadweard Muybridge. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Seiyo Tokei Benran].

      - Tokyo, Yamatoya Kihee 1872 [Meiji 5]. 185x80mm publisher's stiff wrapper with title label (marked), accordian folding to form 34pp with woodblock illustrations throughout. A nice copy. An introduction to the western watch and its workings and - more important - western time and how to tell it. Roman numerals and the hour, minute and seconds hands are explained and a series of watch faces guide us through the rest of the intricacies of measuring time in the western style. Obviously for the pocket, this could be hauled out with the new gizmo when its fledgling owner was stumped. Or even by a non-watch owner faced with a public clock. At the end the thermometer is illustrated and explained too. This is not to say that the Japanese hadn't already mastered the clock. Since the Jesuits introduced clocks in the 16th century Japanese clockmakers had developed complex weight and spring driven mechanisms to run timekeepers according to the unequal hours of day and night, varying according to season. But in 1872 the government switched from the lunar calendar to the solar calendar and abolished traditional timekeeping and a whole nation had to start again from scratch. Makes sense to me that daylight hours are longer and night hours shorter in summer and the reverse in winter. We all know that despite what the clock says all hours are not created equal. Bring back traditional Japanese timekeeping I say.

      Lee and Shepard, Boston / Lee, Shepard, and Dillingham, New York 1872 - 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. 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 Wasikowska as Alice), as well as other adaptations.

By May 1, according to a royalty statement, 37,701 copies had been sold, of which 22,43 were in cloth; 13, 952 in sheep and in cloth with gilt edges; 1,176 in three-quarter morocco; and 30 in "special" bindings which included full morocco. By 1879, the proportions were as follows: 96,083 copies sold. Two surviving copies are recorded in the full morocco binding, one of which Twain presented to his wife with her name stamped in gilt on the front cover. The other full morocco copy was identically stamped, except for having no name on the cover. BAL distinguishes between the first and second states by the presence of two words on page 242 (first state) or their absence (second state). But it isn't that simple. Copies are found with just one word present (or one word absent, if you are a pessimist.) And similar damage to the plates has been noted on the following pages: xi.1 (M in My is perfect) as in this copy; 19.1 (y is perfect) as in this copy; and 123.6 up (death! which was corrected from death.) as this copy. All of these texts are damaged at some point during the printings(s), and all, including the one on page 242, are found in endless random combinations. At some point, two words were altered: at page 156.2 up "thirteenth" was corrected to "sixteenth" - this copy has the uncorrected "thirteenth" -and on page 330.16 up "Eastern" was corrected to "eastern" - this copy has the uncorrected listing. These changes could distinguish between two printings, but may only distinguish between two later printings. The states of the plates can be guessed at, but if multiple plates were used or mixing of sheets took place (as is clear from surviving copies) they should be viewed with caution.Condition:Professionally re-backed; page ends renewed, corners bumped, former owner's name on front end paper dated March 27, 1872. Over all a very good copy.

        Ett år i stilla hafvet reseminnen från Patagonien, Chili, Peru, Californien, Britiska Columbia och Oceanien...

      Stockholm: Lith. Art. Anstalt, 1872. Quarto, with 12 tinted lithographic plates; a very good copy in original decorated boards. Scarce and finely illustrated voyage account, including handsome lithographed portraits of the Hawaiian monarchs Kamehameha the Fourth and Kamehameha the Fifth. The author, Adolf Ekelöf, was a young Swedish lieutenant who sailed on the English frigate Zealous to the Pacific in 1867. In addition to descriptions of California and British Columbia, this book is particularly interesting for its Pacific material, with significant entries on Hawaii, Tahiti, and other South Sea Islands. Unusually, Ekelof provides both the music and words to an Hawaiian Folk Hymn and a Tahitian National Melody.The lithographic plates are well rendered - some are clearly produced from portrait photographs while others are based on marine and landscape sketches. Of the twelve plates, seven are of Hawaiian and Tahitian subjects. In addition to the plate of the Hawaiian monarchs mentioned above, the book includes portraits of Queen Pomare of Tahiti and a coastal scene at Waikiki. Backstrip and endpapers renewed.

"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. Near Fine.

        A History of Greece; from the Earliest Period to the Close of the Generation Contemporary with Alexander the Great.

      London: John Murray, 1872. Ten volumes, octavo, folding maps and illustrations; a fine set in contemporary polished half calf, marbled sides and edges, spines decorated in gilt in compartments. 'Although as biased as Macaulay's History of England and less scholarly than Mommsen's Roman History, Grote's History of Greece can be bracketed with these two works. Like them, it was received with universal acclamation, was translated into French and German, shaped the European conception of its subject-matter throughout the nineteenth century, and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship' (Printing and the Mind of Man 321).

Orig. pict. green cloth, bevelled boards. v.g.Not in BL; Imperial College only on Copac; 3 copies only on OCLC; no copies recorded on ABPC & none currently for sale.An exceptionally scarce and comprehensive guide to the science and method of portrait photography, with 12 photographic examples of how to set up and mount the perfect portrait. 'This book' Anderson writes in the preface, 'has been written for learners, not for the learned! It has not been my object to extend the boundaries of our present system of photography, by excursion into debatable ground, but to present that which is generally admitted in a form easily comprehended. By this, however, I do not wish to convey the idea that my book is unscientific in its method; certainly not. I mean merely, that I have striven to avoid encumbering the work with the many abstruse and still unsolved questions which environ the subject'.
