Those basic components of instruction were published for the first time here on a grand scale, and concentrate on the drawing of basic geometric figures and applying those to historic ornamental forms and the stylization of plants.

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

        The "Car-Hook" Tragedy, The Life, Trial, Conviction and Execution.

      1873 - [Trial]. Foster, William, Defendant. Remault, J. Edwards. The "Car-Hook" Tragedy, The Life, Trial, Conviction and Execution of William Foster for the Murder of Avery D. Putnam. Governor Dix's Letters. Neither Tears, Appeals for Executive Clemency from the Wife of the Murdered Man, Opinions on this Interesting Case from Profound Judges, Learned Lawyers, Eminent Ministers, And the Press, Nor Judicial Influence, Backed by a Mine of Wealth, Could Save Foster. Philadelphia: Barclay & Co., [1873]. [ii], 19-96 pp. 3 folding plates, 9 full-page illustrations. Text complete. Octavo (9-1/2" x 5-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in pictorial wrappers. Moderate edgwear, spine abraded with wear at ends, faint dampstain to upper corner of front wrapper, moderate toning to interior, some leaves have minor edgwear. $1,500. * Only edition located. As McDade notes, "Foster, while drunk, smashed the skull of Putnam on a New York City trolley." Remault, the author of this account, argues that despite his "sincere pity for the family of Foster," Foster's execution was necessary: "Ruffianism has been and is still rampant in or large cities, and the palsied arm of Justice has hitherto been powerless to check its infamous career." Remault provides dramatic and detailed descriptions of the murder, trial, backgrounds of Foster and Putnam, the public's reaction, efforts to commute the death sentence and sermons, including one by Henry Ward Beecher. The trial judge was Albert Jacob Cardozo, father of the U.S. Supreme Court Justice Benjamin N. Cardozo. Albert Cardozo was a Tammany Hall appointee who, soon after the end of this trial, was forced to resign due to corruption charges connected to teh Erie Railroad takeover. OCLC locates 14 copies, 3 in law libraries (Harvard, Social Law, Yale). The text captions are in English and German, which indicates the existence of a German edition of this account. We have not been able to locate any copies, however, which suggests one was never issued. McDade, The Annals of Murder 316. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals

      vii+374+[14 ad] pages with figures, drawings, 7 plates (some folding) and index. Octavo (8" x 5 1/4 bound in original publisher's red cloth with gilt lettering to spine and ruled in black with design to cover. First American edition.The Expression of the Emotions in Man and Animals is Charles Darwin's third major work of evolutionary theory, following On The Origin of Species(1859) and The Descent of Man (1871). Originally intended as a section of The Descent of Man, it was published separately in 1872 and concerns the biological aspects of emotional life. In this book, Darwin sets out some early concepts of behavioral genetics, and explores the origins of such human characteristics as the lifting of the eyebrows in moments of surprise and the mental confusion which typically accompanies blushing. A German translation of The Expression appeared in 1872; Dutch and French translations followed in 1873 and 1874. A second edition of the book was published in 1890. Before Darwin, human emotional life had posed problems to the traditional philosophical categories of mind and body. Darwin's biological approach links mental states to the neurological organization of movement and he allows cultural factors only an auxiliary role in the shaping of expression. Darwin's interest can be traced to his time as a medical student and the 1824 publication of Sir Charles Bell's Anatomy and Philosophy of Expression which argued for a spiritual dimension to the subject. Darwin sought out the opinions of some leading British psychiatrists, notably James Crichton-Browne, in the preparation of the book which forms his main contribution to psychology. Amongst the innovations with this book are Darwin's circulation of a questionnaire (probably inspired by his cousin, Francis Galton) in his preparatory research; simple psychology experiments on emotional recognition with his friends and family; and (borrowing from Duchenne de Boulogne, a physician at the Salpêtrière) the use of photographs in his presentation of scientific information. The Expression of the Emotions is an important landmark in the history of book illustration. (Wikipedia)Condition:Spine ends rubbed, a few plates with some partial split at folds, corners bumped and rubbed, over opened at signature starting at the gathering on page 235 to 256, page 181 crudely opened else a about a very good copy.

        Lombard Street:

      London: Henry S. King & Co.,, 1873. A Description of the Money Market. Octavo. Original brown cloth, spine and boards lettered and ruled in gilt and black, dark green endpapers. Contemporary ownership inscription of American judge H. L. Richmond to half-title, a few annotations to contents and rear free endpaper recto. Spine ends and hinges professionally restored, corners a little worn, rear board creased, pastedown cracked but firm; a very good copy. First edition, scarce in commerce. Described by J. M. Keynes as "an undying classic", Lombard Street analyses the operation of the British financial system, focusing on the economic role of the Bank of England. Bagehot's recommendation that the Bank alter gold reserves based on economic cycles was highly influential, and the book was considered authoritative into the 20th century. "The wonderful clearness of Bagehot's power of statement, his exact knowledge of the subject treated on, together with his firm grasp of economic theory, have caused this volume to exert an influence which few books on a subject naturally so dry have possessed" (Palgrave I, p. 81).

Written in a fluent, legible cursive, in brown, black and purple ink, 32/33 lines per page, mostly one column, a few pages in multiple columns, mainly in French, many titles and some passages in Russian, and a few quotes in English. The handwriting becomes smaller and more upright in the second half, apparently in a deliberate attempt to save space. Occasional later insertions and additions. The journal fills a notebook of contemporary black chagrin-covered boards, rebacked in goatskin.*** An unpublished manuscript journal of a highly literate female aristocrat, containing meticulous notes of six years of extensive reading of Russian, French and other European literature, history and philosophy. Countess Lydia Rostopchina was the granddaughter of the famous Count Rostopchin who is said to have ordered the burning of Moscow to prevent Napoleon's troops from taking it; her aunt was the children's book writer the Comtesse de Ségur, and her mother Evdokia Rostopchina was a poet and author in her own right. This journal is a record of the cosmopolitan literary culture of mid-nineteenth-century Russia. Endowed with curiosity, an independent mind, and acute literary sensitivity, Rostopchine (who used the French spelling of her name) records her reactions to such new publications as War and Peace, Crime and Punishment, The Idiot, works by Turgenev and Goncharov, George Sand, Flaubert, and Charlotte Brontë. She provides lengthy and personal commentaries on Dickens, Jean-Jacques Rousseau, Pascal, Molière, Alfred de Musset and Saint Augustine, to name just a few of the hundreds of authors whose works she records. Adding a further dimension to the journal are her essay-like reflections on recent history and revelations about the lives of family members and their extended social circle, prompted by her readings of dozens of memoirs by figures ranging from statesmen to courtesans.

        Voyage d'exploration en Indo-Chine effectué pendant les années 1866, 1867 et 1868 par une commission française. Présidée par M. le capitaine de frégate Doudard de Lagrée, et publié par les ordres du ministre de la Marine sous la direction de M. le lieutenant de vaisseau Francis Garnier. Avec les concours de M. Delaporte, lieutenant de vaisseau et de Mm. Joubert et Thorel, médecins de la Marine.

      Paris: Librairie Hachette et Cie, 1873 - 2 large quarto text volumes (335 x 246 mm) and one folio atlas, 2 volumes in one (490 x 360 mm). Contemporary red French quarter morocco, spines lettered and decorated in gilt, flat bands, red morocco-grain cloth sides concentrically panel-stamped in blind, all edges gilt in text volumes, top edge gilt and others untrimmed in atlas volume, white moiré endpapers. Cloth sides of atlas and corners of text volumes skilfully refurbished, old pale dampstain to margins one plate (not affecting image), customary scattered foxing, otherwise a very good set. Text volumes: 44 full-page engravings, as plates and in the text, including frontispiece to vol. 1, 10 full-page coloured maps and plans, wood-engraved vignettes throughout. Atlas volume: 2 double-page coloured area maps (one folding), 10 coloured route maps, 11 engraved plates of which 2 double-page, 27 single-tint lithographic plates, one containing 2 discrete images, 6 double-page of which 4 containing 2 images and one containing 3, 11 chromolithographic plates; title pages printed in red & black. First edition of the superbly illustrated official account of the most important 19th-century expedition into Indo-China. Cordier records a print run of 800 copies, although there has been more recent speculation that the edition may not have exceeded 300. Following the death of the commander, Captain Ernest Doudard de Lagrée, Garnier was forced to take command of this French government sponsored expedition to explore the navigability of the Mekong. After a voyage of nearly 5,500 miles they had successfully mapped over 3,600 miles of previously unrecorded terrain, represented here by the excellent maps based on Garnier's own notes and surveys. But probably one of the enduring achievements of the expedition was the superb suite of plates produced by Lieutenant Louis Delaporte. On the frequent occasions when the party was forced to travel over land, the river having become impassable, Delaporte took advantage of the interruptions to sketch the costumes and customs of the indigenous peoples, and the local flora and fauna. However, it is in the remarkable images that he produced of Angkor Wat that Delaporte's lasting legacy lies. His portrayal of the temple complex, "the Buddhist Notre Dame. more like a living fairy tale" as he described it, etched it into the Western consciousness and no doubt contributed much to its survival. In the 1970s the remnant of the deposed Khmer Rouge army took shelter there in the knowledge that Western opinion would not allow an attack that would threaten the site. "Garnier dedicated his life to the extension of the French political and commercial presence in Indochina and China. Between 1860. and his death in 1873 (concluding the assualt on the citadel of Hanoi), Garnier spent most of his time in the Far East. He is remembered today not as a colonial administrator but as the explorer of the Mekong River. Garnier managed to convince Napoleon III that France, already occupying the mouth of the Mekong, had to take advantage of this controlling position to develop trade with China (particularly with the province of Yunnan, a target of British and French imperialism) and to use this waterway to extend French colonization north of the new protectorate of Cambodia. Before Garnier's expedition, no European had ever travelled up the Mekong north of Vientiane (Viang-chan), in Laos. The full course and the source of the river were unknown, The expedition party would soon become aware that the river could not be used as a waterway for trade (because of its many rapids and seasonal water-level changes), but, two years after its departure from Saigon, the mission would come back with a map of the entire Mekong basin and with a wealth of information on the economic activities, cultures languages, and customs of the people living by the riverside and in tributary valleys.

        A Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism.

      Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1873. First edition, first issue, and a wonderful association copy, of Maxwell's presentation of his theory of electromagnetism, advancing ideas that would become essential for modern physics, including the landmark "hypothesis that light and electricity are the same in their ultimate nature" (Grolier/Horblit). "This treatise did for electromagnetism what Newton's Principia had done from classical mechanics. It not only provided the mathematical tools for the investigation and representation of the whole electromagnetic theory, but it altered the very framework of both theoretical and experimental physics. It was this work that finally displaced action-at-a-distance physics and substituted the physics of the field" (Historical Encyclopedia of Natural and Mathematical Sciences, p. 2539). "From a long view of the history of mankind -- seen from, say, ten thousand years from now -- there can be little doubt that the most significant event of the 19th century will be judged as Maxwell's discovery of the laws of electrodynamics" (R. P. Feynman, in The Feynman Lectures on Physics II (1964), p. 1-6). "[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" (PMM). "Einstein summed up Maxwell's achievement in 1931 on the occasion of the centenary of Maxwell's birth: 'We may say that, before Maxwell, Physical Reality, in so far as it was to represent the process of nature, was thought of as consisting in material particles, whose variations consist only in movements governed by [ordinary] differential equations. Since Maxwell's time, Physical Reality has been thought of as represented by continuous fields, governed by partial differential equations, and not capable of any mechanical interpretation. This change in the conception of Reality is the most profound and the most fruitful that physics has experienced since the time of Newton'" (Longair). Provenance: The Wheatstone Collection, King's College, London (ink stamps 'King's College London' on recto, 'Kings College London withdrawn' on verso, of title of both volumes, bookplates of the Wheatstone Collection on front paste-downs, shelf-mark in pencil on half-titles). Maxwell was Professor of Natural Philosophy at King's from 1860 to 1865. This was probably the most productive period of his career, during which he displayed the world's first light-fast colour photograph, further developed his ideas on the viscosity of gases, and proposed a system for defining physical quantities, now known as dimensional analysis. But this time is especially noteworthy for the advances Maxwell made in the fields of electricity and magnetism. He examined the nature of both electric and magnetic fields in his two-part paper 'On physical lines of force,' which was published in 1861. In it he provided a conceptual model for electromagnetic induction, consisting of tiny spinning cells of magnetic flux. In two subsequent parts, published in 1862, he introduced the concept of displacement current and gave an explanation for the Faraday effect, the rotation of the plane of the polarization of light in a magnetic field. These researched culminated in the publication of his greatest work, 'A dynamical theory of the electromagnetic field,' in 1865. "According to a famous passage in its preface, the Treatise (1873) represented the outcome of this programme" (Landmark Writings, p. 569). Charles Wheatstone (1802-75) was Maxwell's colleague at King's in the 1860s, having been appointed Professor of Natural Philosophy there in 1834. He was responsible for a number of inventions but is perhaps best known today for the 'Wheatstone bridge,' a device that accurately measured electrical resistance and became widely used in laboratories. He was knighted in 1868. "Maxwell's great paper of 1865 established his dynamical theory of the electromagnetic field. The origins of the paper lay in his earlier papers of 1856, in which he began the mathematical elaboration of Faraday's researches into electromagnetism, and of 1861-1862, in which the displacement current was introduced. These earlier works were based upon mechanical analogies. In the paper of 1865, the focus shifts to the role of the fields themselves as a description of electromagnetic phenomena. The somewhat artificial mechanical models by which he had arrived at his field equations a few years earlier were stripped away. Maxwell's introduction of the concept of fields to explain physical phenomena provided the essential link between the mechanical world of Newtonian physics and the theory of fields, as elaborated by Einstein and others, which lies at the heart of twentieth and twenty-first century physics" (Longair). The 1865 paper "provided a new theoretical framework for the subject, based on experiment and a few general dynamical principles, from which the propagation of electromagnetic waves through space followed without any special assumptions ... In the Treatise Maxwell extended the dynamical formalism by a more thoroughgoing application of Lagrange's equations than he had attempted in 1865. His doing so coincided with a general movement among British and European mathematicians about then toward wider use of the methods of analytical dynamics in physical problems ... Using arguments extraordinarily modern in flavor about the symmetry and vector structure of the terms, he expressed the Lagrangian for an electromagnetic system in its most general form. [George] Green and others had developed similar arguments in studying the dynamics of the luminiferous ether, but the use Maxwell made of Lagrangian techniques was new to the point of being almost a new approach to physical theory--though many years were to pass before other physicists fully exploited the ground he had broken ... "In 1865, and again in the Treatise, Maxwell's next step after completing the dynamical analogy was to develop a group of eight equations describing the electromagnetic field ... The principle they embody is that electromagnetic processes are transmitted by the separate and independent action of each charge (or magnetized body) on the surrounding space rather than by direct action at a distance. Formulas for the forces between moving charged bodies may indeed be derived from Maxwell's equations, but the action is not along the line joining them and can be reconciled with dynamical principles only by taking into account the exchange of momentum with the field" (DSB). "Maxwell once remarked that the aim of his Treatise was not to expound the final view of his electromagnetic theory, which he had developed in a series of five major papers between 1855 and 1868; rather it was to educate himself by presenting a view of the stage he had reached in his thinking. Accordingly, the work is loosely organized on historical and experimental, rather than systematically deductive, lines. It extended Maxwell's ideas beyond the scope of his earlier work in many directions, producing a highly fecund (if somewhat confusing) demonstration of the special importance of electricity to physics as a whole. He began the investigation of moving frames of reference, which in Einstein's hands were to revolutionize physics; gave proofs of the existence of electromagnetic waves that paved the way for Hertz's discovery of radio waves; worked out connections between electrical and optical qualities of bodies that would lead to modern solid-state physics; and applied Tait's quaternion formulae to the field equations, out of which Heaviside and Gibbs would develop vector analysis" (Norman).

PETITNICOLAS EARLY CATHOLIC MISSIONS AND MISSIONARIES IN KOREA THE RARE & TRUE ACCOUNT OF KOREAN OFFICIALS BEHEADING FRENCH CATHOLIC MISSIONARIES IN 1866 A true and early account of the murder of French Catholic missionaries in Korea. THE MARTYR: MICHEL-ALEXANDRE PETITNICOLAS: Born in 1828, he was a Petitnicolas seminarian at Châtel in 1844 and the major seminary of Saint-Die. He stayed for two years in foreign missions before being ordained a priest in 1852. HE BECAME A MISSIONARY AND WENT TO KUMBAKONAM, KOREA: Vicar in Laveline-devant-Bruyeres for a year, he went on a mission to Pondicherry on 5 August 1853. In the Korean district of Kumbakonam, involving 300 villages and some 10,000 Korean Christians. He did not like the climate, was then sent to Hong Kong, from 1855 to 1857 to learn Chinese. In March 1858 he was smuggled into Korea again and began to visit the small Christian communities. He learned Korean with some ease and began to write a Latin-Korean dictionary. He got into major trouble with the Korean government, who began a the Christian persecution of 1860. He continued his missionary work, and supported native Korean priests. At the time of the bloody persecution of Christians in 1866 he was arrested along with Fr. POURTHIE. After a few weeks of very challenging detention they were both beheaded on 12 March 1866. Four other priests had already suffered the same fate on March 8th, 1866. Many times exhumed his body was deposited in the vault of the cathedral Seoul on 10 September 1900 ITEM #1 OF TWO ITEMS IN THIS LISTING: A VERY RARE BOOK ! This is a very rare work on the activities and eventual martyrdom of two French missionaries. There are very few resources covering the early period of French missionary work in Korea. Seldom found on the market, this work covers the missionary activities carried out by Petinicolas, his travels, studies, work with Korean Christian villages. Work at Pondiechery in Shanghai, travel to Seoul. Commentaries on Korea, study of Korean in Hong Kong, administration 1856-1857, and his continued work with Korean village Christians.
