Plateau, J.
Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1873. First edition in book form. Hardcover. g+. Quarto. [4], 450, [2], 495, [1]pp. Original full cloth with gold lettering and ruling on spines. In 1873, Belgian physicist Joseph Plateau published this two-volume work summarizing his decades of research into soap bubbles and related phenomena due to surface tension. Entitled "Statique Exp�rimentale et Th�orique des Liquides Soumis aux Seules Forces Mol�culaires," it has become an inspiration for generations of mathematicians and phycists. The two parts in fact collect all of Plateau's work on experiments about surface tension in liquids, published between 1842 and 1868 in the form of 11 "m�moires". Though less known to the larger public, this research is in fact a lot more important than any of Plateau's perception experiments. In this work, Plateau wonders which are the forces that generate the spherical form. Since no gravity acts on the sphere, molecular forces dominate the process. Plateau proves experimentally that these act in a very thin surface layer. He knows (from Laplace's theory) that a liquid, standing on itself, exerts a force on each point of the surface equal to a constant (which depends on the liquid) multiplied by the mean curvature of the surface in that point. A number of equilibrium surfaces can thus arise. In the first place the sphere, as in Plateau's experiment, but also the cylinder and the flat plane. Plateau finds three other surfaces of revolution that follow these laws: the onduloid, the nodoid and the catenoid (names given by Plateau). This work contains numerous … [Click Below for Full Description]

Just ask! 1873 1ed Mivart Man & Apes DARWIN EVOLUTION Zoology Illustrated Gorilla Catholic A first edition account of George Mivart's reaction to Darwinian naturalism. George Mivart was a 19th-century English biologist known for his attempts to merge the beliefs of Darwinian evolution and the Catholic Church - curiously, he was condemned by everyone! Mivart held views that were contrary to other scientists, including his view on the language of animals - he states: "Since we are unable to converse with brutes, we can but divine and infer from their gestures, motions, and the sounds they emit, what may be the nature of their highest psychical powers." Mivart discounted many of Darwin's own studies including his "hasty attribution of human qualities to brutes, on account of certain superficial resemblances." (Radick, p.69). According to Cooper and Hull, "Mivart describes primates, including humans, as being 'unguiculate, claviculate, placental mammals, with orbits encircled by bone; three kinds of teeth, at least at one time of life; brain always with a posterior lobe and calcarine fissure..."

Ruschenberger, W S W - BOTANY / PHOTOGRAPHY
Washington DC: GPO, 1873. First Edition.. Original three quarter roan.. Good; some dust soiling and occasional spotting; front cover loose; small release stamp on a blank portion of the title, but no other accessioning marks.. 4to, 28 pp. + 22 mounted full page albumen photographs by Gutekunst In 1869 an Ecuadoran doctor named Casares administered the extract of the Cundurango plant to a dying cancer patient. The result was a 'cure'. Other cases were treated and the new cure was brought to the attention of the American Secretary of State. Through that office the Surgeon-General (William Wood) was informed and immediately dispatched J G Ayers to collect samples of the plant. The official expedition to collect samples arrived at Guayaquil in August 1871 (it is interesting to note that it was preceded by a Dr Keene who was already deep in the bush collecting samples of the plant). Later that month Ayers was in the village of Malacatos where most of the samples were collected. By late September he was back aboard ship headed home with samples of 9 distinct species. The report offered here examines and illustrates the various species. Joseph Carson Prof. of Materia Medica at the Univ. of PA was called upon to assist in the botanical examination of the plant samples.

New York: F. W. Beers & Sons, 1873. Folio. 68 pages, including six single page maps and 15 double page maps, many with extended fold outs. Complete and collated against three other copies.

Sixth edition, fourth issue, marked, like the third issue of 1872, as "thirteenth thousand" on the title page. The sixth edition is the last lifetime edition. Darwin continually made revisions to his text; this sixth edition subsequently featured a new chapter, chapter VII, as well as a glossary by W. S. Dallas. "The edition was aimed at a wider public and printed in smaller type. giving the general impression of a cheap edition, which at 7s. 6d, it was". It is also the first edition of The Origin of Species to feature the word "evolution"; the term was first used by Darwin in The Descent of Man, published in 1871. Freeman 396.

Three Englishmen. and three Russians. and their guide, a bushman named Mokoum, set out to measure the arc of a meridian in the Kalahari Desert of South Africa. Everything is going well, until war is declared between England and Russia. [Kytasaari] This tale was initially published in the original French in 1872, as AVENTURES DE TROIS RUSSES ET DE TROIS ANGLAIS DANS L'AFRIQUE AUSTRALE. Sampson Low's English edition, titled MERIDIANA (with the subtitle's nationalities reversed in favor of the Englishmen), was issued in November 1872 but was dated 1873 (as here). In the same month, some of these copies (printed and bound in England) were exported to the U.S. and equipped with the title page of Scribner's import house, Scribner, Welford and Armstrong (likewise dated 1873) -- technically the American issue of the first English edition, and extremely scarce today. Scribner Armstrong (sans Welford) then published the first edition actually produced in America; there was also an unauthorized American edition by Shepard, titled ADVENTURES IN THE LAND OF THE BEHEMOTH, with an altered translation and fewer illustrations, published on the very same day.
