JOHN TYNDALL
AMHERST MASSACHUSETTS, 1872. On offer is an original manuscript autograph letter signed [ALS] addressed to noted Civil War general, Yale economist, Superintendent of the 1880 census, and President of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology [MIT] Francis Amasa Walker (1840-1897). He was the son of renowned economist Amasa Walker. (A brief biography is at the end of this listing.) The Letters: Dated December 9th 1872 and February 16th 1877 John Tyndall, Irish author, physicist and philosopher writes warm intimate kind words regarding gifts the two men have sent back and forth. BIO NOTES: John Tyndall FRS (2 August 1820 - 4 December 1893) was a prominent 19th century physicist. His initial scientific fame arose in the 1850s from his study of diamagnetism. Later he studied thermal radiation, and produced a number of discoveries about processes in the atmosphere. Tyndall published seventeen books, which brought state-of-the-art 19th century experimental physics to a wider audience. From 1853 to 1887 he was professor of physics at the Royal Institution of Great Britain, where he became the successor to positions held by Michael Faraday. BIO NOTES: From one online source: Francis Amasa Walker was a statistician, journalist, educator, academic administrator, and military officer in the Union Army. Walker was born into a prominent Boston family, the son of the economist and politician Amasa Walker, and he graduated from Amherst College at the age of 20. He received a commission to join the 15th Massachusetts Regiment of Volunteers and quickly rose through the ranks as an assistant … [Click Below for Full Description]

Marx, Karl.
1872. 8vo. (2), XIII, (3), 678 pp. Printed on very thick, heavy, vellum-like paper. Bound in a splendid, contemporary, Russian full diced calf binding with blindstamped and darker coloured rectangular "frames" to boards and to compartments of spine. Gilt title to spine. First edition, first issue in Russian, the first translation of "Das Kapital" into any language: a truly magnificent copy of an otherwise unknown deluxe edition printed on special, very heavy paper, making it about 30% thicker than the usual first edition copies. - Although Marx's other works were banned in Russia, the Tsarist censors passed "Das Kapital" as harmless on account of its length and complexity, and the book - rather unexpectedly - became an immediate success with the Russian intelligentsia in search of a theoretical model for industrializing their economically backward country. The press-run of 3000 copies was soon exhausted, and the ensuing ban on the book, when the board of censorship realized their error, prohibited the planned second edition (which was subsequently brought out in New York). The appearance on the market of any first edition has therefore become a great rarity. No mention of a deluxe edition is made at all in the vast bibliographical literature on "Das Kapital". While one could only speculate on the reason for preparing such a special edition, its number must have been extremely small, likely limited to no more than a handful of copies for a small, exclusive group - possibly to be sought among the young revolutionary intellectuals who had laboured for years to make possible th … [Click Below for Full Description]

E. Lancereaux
Adrien Delahaye, 1872. Grd in-8° broché, couverture d'attente, titre contrecollé 131 [1] pages. Etienne Lancereaux (1829-1910), président de l'académie de médecine, est un des grandes personnalités du monde médical de la fin du XIX° siècle. Il fut un clinicien de premier rang, avec un sens de l'observation particulièrement aigu. Son ardeur au travail, son énergie, tout comme son physique puissant et son peu d'attrait pour les mondanités parisiennes lui valurent le surnom de « sanglier des Ardennes ». Son célèbre Traité de Pathologie, publié en 1875, repose sur des milliers de corrélations clinico-pathologiques, et visait à promouvoir la connaissance des maladies en fonction de leurs cases, préfigurant ainsi la classification étiologique des maladies. Il étendit sa méthode au diabète qu'il étudia méthodiquement. Il défendit avec constance l'origine pancréatique du diabète, et introduisit le terme de « diabète pancréatique » dès 1877. Il rassembla des preuves supplémentaires de cette origine pancréatique et publia les preuves dans trois autres recherches, la dernière en 1888 quand il travaillait à l' l'Hôtel Dieu. Un an plus tard, Oskar Minkowski et Joseph von Mering confirmèrent son hypothèse. Bien que leur réussite principale fût de fournir la confirmation expérimentale des observations cliniques de Lancereaux, le terme de « diabète pancréatique » leur fut attribué, bien qu'il ait apparu antérieurement dans les publications de Lancereaux. Nous pouvons maintenant dire que c'est Lancereaux qui a transformé le diabète de « morbus in sede incerta locus » (Morgagni 1761) en « mo … [Click Below for Full Description]

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 ? [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

First edition, in the original Spanish, of a commentary on military events during the reign of Philip IV of Spain, containing several references to Brazil and to the Indian "encomienda" system in Peru and Mexico. The Bolognese military officer, diplomat and King Philip IV of Spain's official chronicler Virgilio Malvezzi (1595-1654), describes the dangers of the Dutch conquests in Brazil, notes their attacks on Baía de Todos os Santos (in April and May 1638), an armada expected to be sent to help Brazil, and the Portuguese military successes in Brazil, which were to lead to their final victory in 1657. 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.

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. Rare first edition of a Spanish military commentary, especially important for its views on the Dutch-Portuguese conflict in Brazil.

DARWIN, CARLO [CHARLES] - [FIRST ITALIAN TRANSLATION OF DARWIN'S 'JOURNAL OF RESEARCHES']
Torino, Tipografico-Editrice Torinese, (1872). Large8vo. In publisher's original full green cloth. Embossed title with gilt lettering to spine and front board. Corners of binding bumped and lower part of back hindge with a small tear. An overall very fine and clean copy. (2), 464 pp. ¶ First Italian translation of Darwin's Journal of researches, now known as Voyage of the Beagle, being his first published book. As Darwin later recalled in his autobiography 'The voyage of the Beagle has been by far the most important event in my life and has determined my whole career'. "On its first appearance in its own right, also in 1839, it was called Journal of researches into the geology and natural history etc. The second edition, of 1845, transposes 'geology' and 'natural history' to read Journal of researches into the natural history and geology etc., and the spine title is Naturalist's voyage. The final definitive text of 1860 has the same wording on the title page, but the spine readsNaturalist's voyage round the world, and the fourteenth thousand of 1879 places A naturalist's voyage on the title page. The voyage of the Beagle first appears as a title in the Harmsworth Library edition of 1905. It is a bad title: she was only a floating home for Darwin, on which, in spite of good companionship, he was cramped and miserably sea-sick; whilst the book is almost entirely about his expeditions on land." (Freeman)The first edition appeared in German in 1844, at the instigation of Baron von Humboldt, and the second in Danish, French, German, Italian, Russian and Swedish, in Darwin's life … [Click Below for Full Description]

CARROLL, Lewis.
London: Macmillan and Co., , 1872. With Forty-Two Illustrations by John Tenniel. 2 works, octavo (187 x 133 mm). Turn of the century red crushed morocco by Riviere & Son, raised bands to spine lettered in gilt, compartments richly panelled and decorated in gilt, double fillet gilt border to covers, gilt board edges and turn-ins, marbled endpapers, edges gilt. Original cloth covers and spine bound in at rear. Excellent copies, handsomely bound. An attractive set of the Alice books which "have earned him a place in the firmament of the great, for they are not only acts of imaginative genius but they also revolutionized writing for children. Children's books after Carroll grew less serious, more entertaining, and sounded less like sermons and more like the voices of friends than earlier prototypes … The Alice books and The Hunting of the Snark have had an impact upon the English language as well, and after Shakespeare and the Bible are the most frequently quoted round the world" (ODNB). The set shows his remarkable early popularity. Still in its first year of publication Looking-Glass is here in its 32nd thousand; Alice's Adventures, first published for Christmas 1865, has already reached its sixth edition (39th thousand).
