        [Manuscript Contract]: Between Lewis W. Wimbish and Thomas Jeffreys, an African-American Farm Hand, for the year 1873

      [Virginia], 1873. Fine. Folio. Measuring 7.75" x 12". A "Memorandum of Agreement" consisting of two manuscript pages, Signed by Wimbish, Jeffreys (with his "X" mark), and a witness (A.S. Lee). Fine. An exceptional example of a Reconstruction Era contract between a white landowner and African-American farmhand in Virginia. The yearlong contract was "made and entered into this the first day of January in the year 1873, by and between Lewis W. Wimbish and Thomas Jeffreys, a colored laborer."Wimbish employed Jeffreys "to do labor and service for him as a farm hand ... ending with the 31st of December of the same year ... [and] agrees and hereby obligates himself to pay to the said Thomas Jeffreys for his said services as farm hand and general laborer ... the sum of Sixty Dollars ... ." Wimbish further agrees to furnish Jeffreys with three barrels of corn, one hundred and twenty five pounds of pork ..." and to have "one day of each week ... to be devoted ... in laboring for himself in the cultivation of such crops as he ... may choose ... ." He also must provide Jeffreys with a house. Jeffreys "on his part ... agrees to serve the said L.W. Wimbish faithfully and continuously ... as a farm hand and general laborer ... ."Although the location of the Wimbish estate is not indicated on the contract, Lewis W. Winbish (b. 1846) is identified elswhere as head of the family in Mecklenburg County, Virginia; and Federal census records identify Thomas Jeffreys as a black farmer born in Virginia (about 1837). A scarce survival in fine condition.

        Lobgesänge in Prosa / aus dem Englischen von Mrs. G. Mayo.

      Also titled: Mrs. Barbauld's hymns in prose for children. Adelaide : Wm. Eggers & Eimer, 1873. Small quarto, original full blue roan with gilt vignette on each board, both boards with triple gilt rule (lacking backstrip, upper board detached), all edges gilt, green china clay endpapers, early inscription to verso of front endpaper 'Mrs. Humphry with my kind regards', pp 81, chromolithographed title-page with initials illuminated by hand in colour and gilt, 16 hand-coloured plates by Charles Turner, and a further 15 illuminated initials; parallel text in German and English; the leaves with only very occasional mild spotting, else internally clean and fresh. Not in Muir. This extraordinary work, published in Adelaide for the South Australian German Lutheran community by leading German printer Wilhelm Eggers, is a dual language edition of Hymns in prose by Barbauld with English text and facing German translation. It features numerous fine chromolithographs by Charles Turner of Australian and European scenes, as well as exquisite hand-illuminated initials in the style of a Mediaeval psalter. In all facets of its design - typography, chromolithography, and binding - this publication sets a standard that is quite exceptional for colonial Australian book production. The translator, Mrs. G. Mayo, can be confidently identified as Henrietta Mayo (Henrietta Mary Donaldson, 1852-1930), wife of George Gibbes Mayo, a member of one of Adelaide's most prominent familes. The artist, Charles Turner, was later to become a successful lithographer and illustrator in Melbourne; his great talent as a chromolithographer is already demonstrated in his significant contribution to this Adelaide publication of the early 1870s. An earlier Australian edition was published (probably in Adelaide, but publisher unknown) in 1871, but it contained only 3 plates (by Charles Troedel) and no hand coloured decoration. It is, therefore, not nearly as desirable as the 1873 edition. However, extant copies of either edition are now considered rarities. The fact that only a handful of examples appear to have survived may be directly attributable to the strong anti-German sentiment in South Australia during the First World War, which was almost certainly responsible for the destruction of many German-language publications. Only three copies of the 1873 edition are recorded in Australian collections (National Library of Australia; State Library of South Australia; State Library of New South Wales).

Osgood and Company in Boston. This is the brown variant (or terra-cotta) of three colour variants issued (green, blue, brown). The brown variant seems to be the scarcest of the three.

Page block edges stained reddish as called for. ‘The Tour of the World in 80 Days’ is, together with ‘20,000 Miles under the Sea’ Jules Verne’s most famous novel that has been adapted dozens of times and captured the imagination of generations.

        A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism.

      Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1873 - 2 vols, 8vo (220 x 140 mm), pp. xxix [iii] 425 [3, blank] [2, plates half-title] errata slip before page 1; xxiii [xxiv, blank] 444 [2, plates half-title], with 21 plates, numbered I-XX and with an additional plate at page 148 in volume one; an excellent copy in original cloth, with only very faint fading of spines, small split in cloth in spine of vol 1. First edition, first issue (see below) of the fundamental textbook on the dynamics of the electromagnetic field, a classic of nineteenth-century physics. This work is fundamental to the development of relativity theory as well as quantum physics. ‘Maxwell here advanced the significant hypothesis that light and electricity are the same in their ultimate nature’ (Horblit). ‘[Maxwell] may well be judged the greatest theoretical physicist of the 19th century . Einstein’s work on relativity was founded directly upon Maxwell’s electromagnetic theory; it was this that led him to equate Faraday with Galileo and Maxwell with Newton’(Printing and the Mind of Man). ‘The most significant event of the 19th century will be judged as Maxwell’s discovery of the laws of electrodynamics’ (Richard Feynman in Landmark Writings in Western Mathematics). Issues: the present copy establishes a previously unrecognized issue of Maxwell’s text. I propose the following sequence: first, as here, with errata slip in vol I before B1, without the errata leaves (one in each vol) subsequently issued, and without the 8 leaves of publisher’s advertisements at the end of vol 2; second issue, with errata slip in vol I before B1, without the errata leaves as above, but with 8 leaves of publisher’s advertisements at the end of vol 2, the Maxwell vols advertised on p 10 as ‘just published’; third issue: no errata slip, 2 errata leaves, one in each volume; 8 leaves of publisher’s advertisements as above but without the words ‘just published’ Provenance: Edward Caldwell (1861–1949), editor and president of McGraw-Hill, collector of rare books. He attended Knox College but received his A.B. degree from the University of Michigan in 1886 and a Masters in Electrical Engineering from Cornell University; Edward Caldwell Electrical Collection, Knox College, with ex-libris stamp on verso of front free endleaf of each vol; no other institutional markings Horblit 72 (not noting extra plate or errata in second volume); Norman 1666 (later issue); PMM 355; Wheeler Gift Catalogue 1872 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1873. First edition, this the copy of the Mountain Club of Eastern Africa, Uganda, with signed presentation to the members from the Author's grand nephew affixed to the front pastedown. There are no other institutional or ex-libris markings. With a large folding map with routes in colour and 11 nicely engraved illustrative plates including a portrait of the author as frontispiece. 8vo, original dark blue cloth lettered in gilt and pictorially decorated in black on the upper cover, the spine gilt lettered. xiii, 525, [2] pp. Scarce in original cloth and rarely found in found in acceptable condition, this copy with old expert restoration to the cloth, rebacked with original spine panel preserved, endpapers refreshed, internally very good with more mild toning than is usually found with this title, the spotting only light and occasional, one plate with a closed tear with no loss. VERY SCARCE, RARE IN THE ORIGINAL CLOTH AND STILL MORE RARE IN ANYTHING BUT POOR CONDITION. THE WORK IS KNOWN TO MOST ONLY FROM THE REPRINT OF NEARLY 100 YEAR LATER. THE BOOK RELATES THE FIRST ASCENT OF KILIMINJARO. The author was a missionary, a member of the Livingstone Search and Relief Expedition, and was also an accomplished artist and photographer. The engraved plates in this volume are reproduced mostly from his own sketches and photos. Of great interest is the author's account of his attempt to reach the summit of Mt. Kilimanjaro, with which he became the first European to successfully reach the snow line. New made a thorough study of the environment of the mountain and recovered a large number of native plants from the mountain slopes, which he then gave to Joseph Dalton Hooker from the Kew Gardens in London. New also discovered the crater lake of Jala, the mountain's only volcanic lake, at Kilimanjaro's foot to the south-east of Mawenzi. For his geographical exploits was honored by the Royal Geographical Society with a gold chonometer in April 1874.

        Japan - Beiträge zur Kenntnis des Landes und seiner Bewohner

      Asien - 1. und Einzigste Auflage , ( Entered according to Act of Congress in the Southern District of New York by W. Heyne Jan. 1873 ) II S. + 99 S. + 1 S. + 50 Tafeln mit Seidenhemdchen + jeweils 2 S. Text erläuternder Text dazu ,Originalganzleinen mit Deckel - und Rückentitel, etwas gelockert , 2 Einbandkanten stärker bestoßen, Erhaltung 2 += Peter Bernhard Wilhelm Heine (* 30. Januar 1827 in Dresden 5. Oktober 1885 in Kötzschenbroda[1], heute Radebeul auch William Heine) war ein deutscher Maler, Schriftsteller und Reisender,Heine studierte an der Dresdner Kunstakademie und bei Julius Hübner, anschließend ging er zu Studienzwecken für drei Jahre nach Paris. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Dresden arbeitete er als Theatermaler und Kunstlehrer. Wegen seiner Teilnahme an den Aufständen 1848/1849 musste er, unterstützt durch Alexander von Humboldt, 1849 nach New York fliehen, wo er am Broadway ein Atelier eröffnete. Auf Einladung des Archäologen und Diplomaten Ephraim George Squier bereiste er 1851 auch Lateinamerika, vertrat Squier, bis dieser nach ihm eintraf, als Konsul, und dokumentierte und malte viele einheimische Pflanzen (Wanderbilder aus Centralamerika, 1853). Zurück in Washington, D.C. traf er Präsident Millard Fillmore und Commodore Matthew Calbraith Perry und schloss sich im Jahr darauf Perrys Expedition nach Japan an. Als Mitglied in dessen Stab gelang es ihm, von dem damals noch für Ausländer gesperrten Edo viele Zeichnungen zu machen. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach New York wurden diese und viele andere 1855 veröffentlicht. Es folgten seine Erinnerungen Reise um die Welt nach Japan (2 Bde., Leipzig, 1856), denen später (1859) noch ein 3. oder Supplementband unter dem Titel Die Expedition in die Seen von China, Japan und Okhotsk (Leipzig,1859) folgte. Kurz darauf erschien als separates Werk noch "Japan und seine Bewohner" (Leipzig, 1860), das ebenfalls auf Erfahrungen und Studien im Zusammenhang mit dieser Reise beruht.In Berlin erreichte Heine 1860 die Einladung, als Reisemaler die preußische Eulenberg-Expedition nach Ostasien mitzumachen. Während dieser Reise traf er in Jokohama den nach Europa zurückkehrenden russischen Revolutionär Michael Bakunin nach seiner Flucht aus Sibirien.Zurück in den USA wurde Heine einer der Forty-Eighters, der wegen der 1848er Revolution geflohenen Europäer, die im Amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg meist auf Seiten der Unionstruppen teilnahmen. Heine war als Landvermesser (Ingenieur-)Hauptmann der Potomac-Armee und stieg 1865 bis zum Brigadegeneral auf. Zwischendurch veröffentlichte Heine 1864 sein Hauptwerk, Eine Weltreise um die nördliche Hemisphäre in Verbindung mit der Ostasiatischen Expedition in den Jahren 1860 und 1861 (Leipzig, 2 Bände). Nach dem amerikanischen Bürgerkrieg wurde er Konsul der USA in Paris, später in Liverpool.Schließlich kehrte er 1871 nach Dresden zurück und schrieb sein letztes Buch Japan, Beiträge zur Kenntnis des Landes und Seiner Bewohner (Berlin, 187380). Um 1880 ließ er sich in Niederlößnitz in der Augustusstraße 7 (heute Käthe-Kollwitz-Straße 24) nieder. Ab 1883 wohnte er in der Meißner Straße 45 (heutige Hausnummer: 269) in Kötzschenbroda. Dieser letzte Wohnsitz Heines wurde zwischenzeitlich abgerissen= Quelle Wikepedia

        MIDDLEMARCH: A Study of Provincial Life

      1873. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1873. 2 prelininary pp undated ads, plus 4+4 pp terminal ads (the former headed "Autumn Book-List," the latter listing this as one of the "New Books"). Original green cloth. Second American Edition -- barely -- of George Eliot's best-known book, and what is today regarded as one of the greatest literary accomplishments of the 19th Century. The novel first appeared in eight wrappered five-shilling parts in England, one issued every two months beginning on 1 Dec 1871 and ending on 2 Dec 1872 (the last two were sped up) -- soon after which (early December) the novel was also available in four cloth-bound volumes. Meanwhile in America, Harper was serializing MIDDLEMARCH in Harper's Weekly, from Dec 16 1871 through Feb. 15 1873. The week of Dec 28 1872, Harper published the novel in two volumes (I dated 1872 and II dated 1873), as Vols VI and VII of their "Novels of George Eliot." Very soon thereafter (days? -- Baker & Ross does not specify a date), Harper also published the novel in one volume, in the standard two-column format of their "Library of Select Novels" -- bound either in paper wrappers or, as here, in any of three colors of cloth (including this green).~B&R cites two states of the terminal ad leaves: "Spring Book-List" listing Select Novels through No. 391, and "Summer Book-List" listing through No. 395; this copy represents a third state, "Autumn Book-List" with the list ending at No. 400. Condition is just about fine. The American MIDDLEMARCH -- either of these Harper editions -- is curiously scarce, especially in fine condition. Baker & Ross A10.5.a.

        A Phrenologist amongst the Todas. Or the Study of a Primitive Tribe in South India. History, Character, Customs, Religion, Infanticide, Polyandry, Language.

      London: Longmans, Green, and Co., 1873 - Octavo. Original red cloth, gilt-lettered spine, blind panels to boards. Spine darkened, sides marked, surface-wear to corners, front inner hinge cracked at head, but holding, contents clean. A good copy. Half-tone photographic frontispiece, 14 similar plates, 5 further plates, 4 line-drawings to the text. First edition. Marshall, an Indian Army officer, lived among the pastoral Toda people of the Nilgiri plateau while on furlough in 1870. British observers had wondered at their strange appearance and customs since the 1830s, variously identifying them as descendants of Jews, Arabs, Scythians, Druids, Romans, or even Polynesians; Marshall himself concluded that they were of Turanian origin with "much of the blameless Ethiopian about them" (p. 4). His study has been considered "a testament to the longevity of phrenology as an anthropometric science, but it received little credibility from its peers and Marshall was refused Government patronage for a second study" (Sutton, Other Landscapes: Colonialism and the Predicament of Authority in the Nineteenth Century, p. 161). The attractive plates were produced using the Autotype reproduction process, a form of halftone printing developed by the Autotype Fine Art Company, founded in 1868. There was another edition in the same year, issued by the same publisher under the title Travels amongst the Todas, the priority unknown. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Nos poires.

      - Gentbrugge, Établissement Horticulture de Louis Van Houtte, [N.D. but 1873]. Oblong folio (35.5 x 26.7 cm). 32 pp., 22 plates, numbered A-V; of which 16 (numbered A-C, J-V) in fine chromolithography, finished by hand, and tissue-guarded. Original blind-tooled cloth, with gilt title on the front board. Floral-patterned endpapers.= An extremely rare and fine monograph on Belgian pears (the title plainly meaning "Our pears"), describing no less than 431 different types of pears, including 234 different specimens of pears illustrated on 22 full colour plates, and six black and white (outline) plates, each with six images. The author was Louis Benoît Van Houtte (1810-1876). "If the nineteenth century Ghent florists had an icon, it was undoubtedly Louis Van Houtte. He traded a job at the Ministry of Finance for that of a botanist and florist. He opened a shop in Brussels, went on botanical expedition to the Brazilian jungle, was briefly director of the Brussels Botanical Garden and finally settled in Gentbrugge, where he specialized in ornamental horticulture. He was the first to bring to Europe the famous giant water lily, Victoria regina, for which he built a special greenhouse which attracted many visitors. Van Houtte was also politically active, and from 1854 until his death he was mayor of Gentbrugge. As a liberal, he also devoted much attention to the establishment of the municipal education and had built two schools. His legacy includes the famous magazine, 'L'Horticulture Belge' and the 23 volumes of the 'Flore des Serres et des Jardins de l'Europe' published between 1845 and 1883" (after B. D'Hondt, 2014). This fine pear-publication, however, is little known and must be very rare. It includes images of pear types now long forgotten, but also some pears that are still commercially successful. Some light shelfwear, spine foot frayed, private owner's stamp of P. Fenterer van Vlissingen, and earlier autograph (partly erased) in the title page top margin, otherwise a very good, clean copy. Very rare. OCLC reports only two copies, both in European libraries. Not in Nissen BBI, Raphael (An Oak Spring Pomona), or Stafleu & Cowan. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        De la numération des globules rouges du sang. I. Des méthodes de numération. II. De la richesse du sang en globules rouges dans les différentes parties de l'arbre circulatoire. Louis-Charles Malassez. COPY SIGNED

      Paris 1873 - in-8, broché. 73 pp. Edition originale de cette contribution majeure à l'hématologie : Louis-Charles Malassez (1842-1909) fut en effet l'inventeur de la première méthode pratique de numération des globules rouges (une précédente, mise au point en 1867, était peu praticable). L'hématimètre ou cellule de Malassez est une lame de verre sur laquelle un quadrillage a été gravé de 25 rectangles contenant eux-mêmes 20 petits carrés. Pour dénombrer les cellules, on place une lamelle de verre sur la cellule de Malassez, appelée lame de Malassez, sur laquelle on dépose entre 10 et 15 µl de cellules en suspension. Après avoir attendu quelques minutes pour que les cellules sédimentent, on peut compter le nombre de cellules dans 10 rectangles (quadrillés). le volume d'un rectangle quadrillé étant de 0,01 µl, en comptant 10 rectangles, il suffit alors de multiplier le résultat par 10000 pour obtenir le nombre de cellules. - - - - Original printed wrappers, minor wear and chipping at extremities, ownership inscription ("Martin") on front wrapper. Light foxing but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Malassez to "Bouchereau" on the title: "A mon excelent ami [. . .] souvenirs du Collège, L. Malassez." First Edition. Malassez, a pupil of Claude Bernard, invented the hemocytometer, a device originally designed to count red blood cells; it is now used to count other types of cells as well. He first described the hemocytometer in the present paper, which was published a year before the journal article cited in Garrison-Morton (no. 876). The instrument, illustrated on page 24, consists of a thick glass microscope slide with a rectangular indentation that creates a chamber; this chamber is engraved with a grid of perpendicular lines. The area bounded by the lines is known and the depth of the chamber is also known; it is therefore possible to count the number of cells in a given volume of fluid, and thus to determine the concentration of cells in the fluid overall. Malassez's treatise also contains the first published description of the diluting pipette invented in 1867 by his colleague Pierre Potain (1825-1901); an illustration of this device is on page 13. These two inventions led to greater facility in counting both red and white blood cells.This was the trade edition Malassez's thesis; a thesis edition was published in Paris by A. Parent, also in 1873. Garrison-Morton (online) 876. Histoire illustrée de l'hématologie, pp. 20, 36. Wintrobe, Hematology: The Blossoming of a Science, p. 52.
