        TWENTY THOUSAND LEAGUES UNDER THE SEAS;

      1873. [a handsome copy] or, The Marvellous and Exciting Adventures of Pierre Aronnax... Translated from the French. One Hundred and Ten Illustrations. (Edition of James R. Osgood & Co.) Sold Only by Subscription. Boston: Geo. M. Smith & Co., 1873. Original green cloth decorated in gilt and black. First American Edition, second and usual "Smith" issue, of Verne's famous tale of Captain Nemo and the submarine Nautilus. Considerable confusion surrounds the relationship of the two Boston 1873 title pages that can appear in this title -- the James R. Osgood & Company title page, and this usual Geo. M. Smith & Co. one (which refers to the Osgood one and indicates "sold by subscription only"). The bindings of the two are nearly identical (the Osgood binding reads "...UNDER THE SEA" and bears a jellyfish in the center of the front cover, whereas the Smith binding properly reads "...UNDER THE SEAS" and has Captain Nemo using a sextant on the front cover). Clearly the Osgood one is a bit earlier and is much scarcer: supposedly only about fifteen copies were known to exist, but we have handled more than a dozen of them over the past 20 years (all between $12,000 and $27,500), so our guess would be more like fifty. One theory is that the Osgood title page may have designated the subscription issue, and that the Smith one, being much less scarce, must have designated the subsequent trade issue. Another possibility is that most of the Osgood edition was consumed by a Boston fire.~This copy is a standard copy without gilt page edges (a deluxe feature for which the original buyer paid extra). The leaves bulk about 1-3/8" thick (some copies are on thicker paper -- no known priority). On the final page of text, there is no "THE END" (some copies have it, some have it partially, and some do not have it at all; this is not an "issue point" as is sometimes claimed, but merely a case of type slippage during a single print run, with no bearing upon which copies were actually first to reach the public).~As for condition, this is a bright, just-about-fine copy (a few tiny speckles on the front cover but otherwise no external soil or wear; label removed from a corner of the front free endpaper); remarkably, the original dark brown endpapers of this hefty volume are still entirely intact..

        Illustrations of China and Its People: A Series of Two Hundred Photographs, with Letterpress Descriptive of the Places and People Represented (Volumes I & II)

      - London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, and Searle, 1873, volumes I and II (2 volumes out of 4), containing nearly 110 photographs on 48 plates with descriptive text [Volumes I & II seuls (sur 4 au total) qui contiennent près de 110 photographies sur 48 planches protégées par serpentes, accompagnées d'un texte descriptif.]. **'My design in the accompanying work is to present a series of pictures of China and its people, such as shall convey an accurate impression of the country I traversed as well as of the arts, usages, and manners which prevail in different provinces of the Empire. With this intention I made the camera my constant companion of my wanderings, and to it I am indebted for the faithful reproduction of the scenes I visited, and of the types of races which I came into contact' (Introduction). Two large volumes (48x36 cm), bound in maroon cloth, front covers adorned with a gilt illustration of a Confucian temple in Peking and gilt titles, gilt edges; corners are worn, edges show some rubbing, spines have been professionally restored, several pages of text have some foxing, still a very good condition for these 2 volumes [2 albums de grand format (48x36 cm), cartonnages recouverts de toile marron, couvertures ornées d'une illustration dorée représentant un temple à Pékin et de titres et motifs dorés, tranches dorées; les coins de couverture sont écrasés et usés, les tranches frottées par endroits, les dos ont été restaurés par un relieur professionnel, certaines pages de texte comportent des rousseurs; dans l'ensemble les deux volumes sont en état très satisfaisant]

        Autograph sheet of scientific notes

      [Besso, Michele (1873-1955).] Autograph manuscript notes, including numerous mathematical calculations. One sheet, written on one side only. N.p., n.d. [ca. 1911-1912]. 220 x 140 mm. Creased horizontally but fine. Besso met his close friend Einstein when the latter was at the Federal Polytechnic Institute (now the ETH Zurich); Einstein described Besso as “the best sounding board in Europe” for scientific ideas. The present sheet of notes in Besso’s hand is an example of this fruitful relationship between the two men: It contains Besso’s mathematical recalculations of formulae that Einstein used in his paper “Thermodynamische Begründung des photochemischen Äquivalentgestezes” [Thermodynamic foundation of the photochemical equivalence law], published in the Annalen der Physik on March 26, 1912. On this leaf Besso makes specific use of Planck’s constant h, which at the time was calculated as 6.5 x 10-27: “Die Energie pro Molekul, E/N = h[nu].” This and the other calculations at the foot of the leaf relate directly to p. 837 of Einstein’s paper, in which Einstein re-expressed Wilhelm Wien’s formula of radiation by introducing Planck’s constant into it. Besso is best known today for his collaboration with Einstein on research that led to the theory of general relativity. In 1913 and 1914 the two friends generated a set of research notes now known as the Einstein-Besso manuscript, one of only two extant manuscripts (the other being the so-called Zurich notebook of 1912-13) with research notes documenting Einstein’s work toward the general theory of relativity.

        Le Coffret de santal

      1873 - 174 pp. et (1) f. Paris, Alphonse Lemerre, Nice, Gay et fils, 1873, in-12, 174 pp. et (1) f, reliure de l'époque en demi-basane bleue avec coins, dos orné, tête dorée, non rogné, Édition originale de ce recueil de 74 poèmes, dont huit en prose, publiée aux frais de l'auteur. Le poète avait versé 200 francs pour être édité chez Alphonse Lemerre, mais celui-ci accepta seulement d'être le dépositaire parisien d'un imprimeur niçois, auquel Cros, pour être enfin publié, dut donner encore 250 francs. Cette édition diffère de sa réédition de 1879 par "toute la distance qui sépare la conscience du désespoir. Les deux préfaces reflètent l'expérience de l'auteur : la première est le cri frémissant de l'homme en marche, la seconde la conscience lassée de celui pour qui rien n'a peut-être plus d'importance. Entre les deux, tragique, le poids d'une expérience de la vie". L'ouvrage porte cette dédicace imprimée à Nina de Villard : "À Nina, j'offre ce coffret de santal". Femme excentrique et généreuse, Marie-Anne Gaillard de Villard, contesse de Callias, eut la passion de la musique et s'acquit la réputation de pianiste étoile. Elle tint, de 1863 à 1882, "le salon le plus vivant et plus intellectuel de Paris. Là, se réunissaient tous les militants d'avant-garde, et, tandis que Nina y fomentait la révolution musicale, avec Félicien David, Berlioz et Wagner, dont elle voulait, contre vents et marées, imposer le génie en France, Jules Vallès, Camille Pelletan, Rochefort y complotaient la ruine du régime impérial. Le symbolisme y fit entendre ses premiers accords, avec Paul Verlaine, Stéphane Mallarmé, Germain Nouveau et Rimbaud qui sut ravir à sa frénésie vagabonde, le temps d'y faire de courtes apparitions" ; modèle privilégié de Manet, elle devait inspirer au peintre une suite de portraits, dont la célèbre "Dame à l'éventail", conservée au Musée d'Orsay. Elle mourut à quarante et un ans, à Paris, seule et abandonnée (Ernest Raynaud, "La Bohème, sous le Second Empire. Charles Cros et Nina", Cahiers de la Quinzaine, 1930). Au bout de neuf années de liaison avec le révolutionnaire Cros, Nina de Villard s'éloignera de lui, en 1877. Cette rupture consommera le délabrement du poète, d'autant plus que, dans l'orage de la séparation, Nina jeta au feu le manuscrit de La Mécanique cérébrale, oeuvre scientifique majeure de Cros. Celui-ci supprimera la dédicace du Coffret de santal lors de la seconde édition qu'il publiera, toujours à compte d'auteur, en 1879. Le recueil sera encore réédité en 1903, aux frais de René Vivien. Touche-à-tout de génie, Charles Cros est aussi célèbre pour ses inventions de la photographie en couleurs et du phonographe, dont il exposa la théorie en 1879, encore que, pour cette dernière, il sera grillé au poteau par l'Américain Edison qui réussira avant lui les démonstrations pratiques et déposera un brevet. Brancardier pendant la Commune, c'est Cros qui, en septembre 1871, ira avec Verlaine accueillir à la gare de l'Est Rimbaud, qu'il manquera mais retrouvera ensuite chez les Mauté : il l'hébergera pendant une quinzaine de jours au cours desquels Rimbaud devait lacérer une revue contenant les poèmes de son hôte. Miné par l'alcool et la maladie, Cros mourra en 1898 ; les surréalistes rendront justice à son esprit multiforme et visionnaire et René Char écrira : "C'est une joie de mettre un moment sa main dans celle de ce fin compagnon du crépuscule, de ce dévaleur de pentes chimériques au bas desquelles vous attend sur les lèvres d'un amour léger le poème impromptu du bien-être mélancolique". Les pièces qui composent le Coffret de santal sont d'inspirations diverses ; à côté de poèmes sentimentaux et amoureux, on trouve le très beau Fleuve, dont Manet illustrera plus tard une édition séparée, et le fameux Hareng saur. Ce poème connut un succès considérable, Cros le récitant souvent et le prestigieux Coquelin Cadet l'utilisant pour inaugurer sa triomphante carrière de monologuiste, tandis qu'Alphonse Allais le récitait en anglais [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        L'arte del calzolajo colla storia della calzoleria antica e moderna divisa in due parti con appendice.

      Manoscritto, Brescia, 1873. Tre volumi in-4ø; 6 cc., 192 pp., 5 cc., XXXIX tavv. (errori di numerazione) - 5 cc., 10 pp., 184 pp., 3 pp., XXXIII tavv. (errori di numerazione) - 1 c., 89 pp., 1 c., 13 tavv. (errori). Le tavole dei primi due volumi sono disegnate e colorate a mano. Legatura editoriale in mezza tela con titolo impresso in oro al piatto anteriore (lievi tracce d'uso). Alcune tavole e carte un poco lente. Ottimo esemplare. Manoscritto probabilmente autografo e in buona parte inedito di Domenico Corazzina, sull?arte della calzoleria. L'autore, calzolaio bresciano, aveva acquisito notoriet... a livello internazionale partecipando con i propri campionari di calzature a due Esposizioni universali (Vienna e Parigi, 1873 e 1878). Il testo Š illustrato da centinaia di figure colorate all'acquerello. Alcune tavole sono incise in litografia e poi acquerellate; altre disegnate a inchiostro e poi colorate; altre ancora (quelle dell?appendice) disegnate a matita: il tutto Š opera dello stesso autore. Il primo volume Š l?unico che abbia conosciuto la stampa, seppure in versione ridotta, nel 1882 a Brescia (poi ristampa anastatica nel 2005), ed Š dedicato alla storia della calzatura attraverso i secoli: dagli antichi Assiri, Babilonesi, Greci e Romani fino agli Americani, agli Asiatici, agli Europei. Nel secondo volume, che risulta ancora inedito, vengono descritte pi-- minutamente, con un intento didattico per gli apprendisti e insieme commerciale, le calzature in voga in particolare in Italia e Francia ai tempi dell?autore e le proposte di moda del Corazzina stesso: i volumi, illustrati dalle tavole con le figure delle calzature, venivano portati personalmente dall'autore all?Esposizione e mostrati ai visitatori. Essi servivano al Corazzina come campionario di modelli: scarpe estive, invernali, autunnali, primaverili, maschili e femminili, dei pi-- svariati materiali e colori. Il terzo volume, anch?esso inedito, Š un?appendice ad uso dei garzoni di bottega. Interessante, a questo proposito, uno dei tanti messaggi che Corazzina scrive ai suoi allievi: ?per creare nuove idee, nuove forme, non devesi mai togliere misura dal capriccio, ma bens? dalla ragione, che qualora quest?ultima ci sia di guida, vi condurr... anche ad un piacevole approvato buon gusto? (fine vol. II). S. Onger, Domenico Corazzina un autodidatta alle esposizioni universali, Civilt... bresciana 2010, pp. 125-131.

        Panorama of Bombay Harbour.

      Bombay: 1873 - Watercolour with pencil underdrawing (170 × 495 mm), titled in pencil in the right lower corner. Window-mounted with wash-line, framed and glazed in attractive, hand-made gilt wood frame. Very good. A lively and appealing panorama of Bombay harbour by a skilful amateur artist on a voyage back to England from India in 1873. The watercolour came from a group of leaves from a disbound album compiled by A.H. Walker who was based in Jubbulpore, perhaps with the Indian Civil Service, and documented his return journey to England. The panorama was most likely taken from the heart of the city, the so called 'Old Mumbai', and shows a wonderful sweep across Bombay harbour and its islands, the soft outlines of the hills, pink and purple in the distance, and native vessels in the foreground.

Rare.<br>Dr. Paul-Ferdinand Gachet was the physician of Vincent van Gogh and himself a reasonably accomplished amateur artist, as evidenced by the present lovely etching.  Van Gogh's Portrait of Dr. Gachet is one of his most revered paintings and depicts him during the period in which he took care of Van Gogh, the final months of his life in Auvers-sur-Oise. Gachet was a great supporter of artists and the Impressionist movement. He was an amateur painter, signing his works "Paul van Ryssel", referring to his birthplace: Gachet came "from" (Dutch: "van") "Ryssel" (actually Rijssel) â?? the Dutch name of Lille.<br>

        Memorial of the Visit of the Shah of Persia To the South West India Docks, June 25th 1873.

      W. Straker, Lith., 53, Ludgate Hill EC, [1873]., [London], - The visit of the Shah Lithograph. The visit of the Shah of Persia, Naser al-Din Shah Qajar, was a major diplomatic incident. Naser al-Din's reign had begun in conflict with Britain; the Anglo-Persian War from 1856-7 forced him to renounce the Persian claim on the city of Herat. By 1873, however, relations between the two powers were more cordial. The Prime Minister, William Gladstone, had invited him in order to safeguard British India from Russia, although he almost cancelled the visit when the Shah spent too long sampling the delights of Paris. Naser al-Din was the first modern Persian monarch to visit Europe, and the print records his visit to the London docks, where a frigate from the Royal Navy, the HMS Shah, was named in his honour. He was also appointed a Knight of the Garter by Queen Victoria. He was deeply interested in the potential of European technology, and wanted to create an independent telegraph service and railway network in his own realm. Image: 202 by 580mm (8 by 22.75 inches).

Provenance: From the Kilmacurragh Estate in County Wicklow, with the bookplate of Charles Acton (Motto: "Adjuvante Deo") and original signature of Thomas Acton to the first three volumes of the set. The Flowering Plants, Grasses, Sedges, and Ferns of Great Britain and Their Allies the Club Mosses, Pepperworts, and Horsetails. London: Frederick Warne and Co., 18551873, 6 vols. (Originally only 5 volumes, published 18551866, as 'The Flowering Plants of Great Britain the 6th volume, on grasses, sedges, and ferns, was added in 1873). Anne Pratt (5 December 1806 1893) was a botanical and ornithological illustrator from Strood, Kent. The second of three daughters of Robert Pratt (17771819), a grocer, and Sara Bundock (17801845), Pratt was one of the best known English botanical illustrators of the Victorian age. Owing to poor health and a 'stiff knee' in childhood, she missed out on 'outdoor activities' and was encouraged to occupy herself by drawing. Anne Pratt was educated at Eastgate House, Rochester, and introduced to botany by Dr. Dods, a family friend. She moved to Brixton, London, in 1826, where she developed her career as an illustrator. She settled in Dover in 1849, then in East Grinstead in 1866, where she married John Pearless they then moved to Redhill. Anne Pratt died in Shepherd's Bush, London. Anne Pratt wrote more than 20 books, which she illustrated with chromolithographs on which she collaborated with William Dickes, an engraver skilled in the chromolithograph process. Her works were written in popular style but were said to be accurate, and are partly responsible for the popularising of botany in her day. From her first book, Flowers and Their Associations, her work sold well, but she never achieved critical acclaim, owing to prejudice against her on the grounds that she was self-taught. Her masterpiece is probably The Flowering Plants, Grasses, Sedges, and Ferns of Great Britain and Their Allies the Club Mosses, Pepperworts, and Horsetails, a six-volume project covering more than 1500 species, with 300 illustrations, that took over a decade to publish in full (18551873).

Charles Henry Huberich was born on February 18, 1877 in Toledo, Ohio. He grew up in San Antonio, Texas, where he studied under private tutors. Huberich received his undergraduate degree from the University of Texas at Austin in 1897 and his Master of Law degree a year later from the same institution. After receiving his Master of Civil Law degree from Yale in 1899, Huberich spent a few months studying at the Universities of Berlin and Heidelberg. In 1900, he was elected as an instructor in law and political science by regents of the University of Texas at Austin. During his stay in Austin, he met Laura King Orr. They were married on June 11, 1902. They had one daughter, May Bess. Huberich taught at the University of Texas until he resigned in May 1905. Later that year, he received a Doctor of Laws degree from the University of Heidelberg and he accepted a teaching position at Stanford University. Huberich taught Constitutional Law, Criminal Law and Conflict of Laws at Stanford until 1912. He was an assistant professor from 1905-1906, an associate professor during 1907, and a professor from 1907 to 1912. Huberich was also a professor of law at the University of Chicago during the 1907 summer session, and at the University of Wisconsin from 1909-1910. After leaving Stanford, Huberich made his home in New York and he set up law offices both there and in London. On July 15, 1925, Huberich was married for the second time, this time to Princess Nina Mdivani. Charles Huberich died at the age of 68 on June 18, 1945. (Sprache: Spanish)

        ST. PATRICK'S MANUAL; OR, THE MANUAL OF ST. PATRICK; BEING A GUIDE TO CATHOLIC DEVOTION

      New York: D. & J. Sadlier & Co, 1873. FIRST EDITION (NAP). Leather_bound. Very Good. 16mo (approximately 6.75" x 4" x 1.75") Full leather. Elaborate, Baroque, modelled thick boards with intricate gilding and tooling in blind. All edges gilt and gauffered. Rubbing to extremities, and rubbing ann fading to spine. Divided into three parts. "...The First Part contains Private Devotions; The Second Part Public Devotions for Mass and Benediction; the Third Part Devotions and Intentions for Approaching the Sacraments and for Special Occasions" Imprimatur John Cardinal McCloskey, Archbishop of New York and Re-Imprimatur Michael Augustine, Archbishop of New York. This is but one of numerous written works by Sister Margaret Anna Cusack, who called herself "The Nun of Kenmare". Cusack was an educated Anglican-turned-Catholic, and devoted activist-firebrand who spent her life advocating for the poor, and challenging what she considered social inequities and even hypocrisies within the Catholic Church and its leadership. Cusack wrote that "many are suffering from the rampant and unjust practices of the church in her day, and ..."Roman Catholic ecclesiastics have impressed the people with the very convenient idea that they are not to be blamed, no matter what wrong they may do; so the devil is made the convenient scapegoat. The claim of priests to be thus excused is a serious danger to the Roman Catholic Church. Facts cannot be hidden as they were in earlier ages. People know that certain evils exist, and though they may be silent for a time, the existence of these evils is not forgotten. An open, honest admission of the evils in the church would go far to lessen them. It would at least save the church the awful crime of even appearing to approve evil by not condemning it....I believe the cause of some of the trouble in convent life is a mistaken view of human nature. Those who enter a religious house, young and full of hope and zeal, and with such sublime ideas of perfection, still take with them poor humanity. To believe that putting on a religious garb will at once alter the dispositions, tempers, or personal peculiarities is a sad delusion. It is true that we may, by generous efforts, change in some respects, but nature is slow and habit is strong. We come into the convent full of imperfections, perhaps of grave faults, and we expect to find every one there perfect; but they like ourselves, are human....Her main complaint was with an unjust church system that allowed, sometimes even encouraged, the worst sides of those men to flourish. 'Human frailty,' she noted, "which made even Paradise a desolation, comes in everywhere, and blights if it cannot destroy." Weakened, tired, and sick after decades of ministry and continuing battles with some church prelates, Margaret Cusack resigned from the order she had founded ... so that her personal struggles would not prevent the order from thriving. Ten years later she died in England and was buried with Anglican rites.

        THE ARCTIC REGIONS. ILLUSTRATED WITH PHOTOGRAPHS TAKEN ON AN EXPEDITION TO GREENLAND BY WILLIAM BRADFORD. WITH DESCRIPTIVE NARRATIVE BY THE ARTIST

      London: Chiswick Press for Sampson, Low, Marston, Low and Searle, 1873. Mounted on linen guards throughout, half title, titlepage in red and black, dedication leaf. 141 mounted albumen prints from wet collodion negatives, by John Dunmore & George Critcherson (one as a vignette on the title, one double-page, twenty-four full-page, and 115 of various sizes in the text). Large folio. Original brown publisher's morocco by Leighton, Son & Hodge, after a design by Bradford, the covers elaborately gilt, expertly rebacked to style, spine with raised bands, a.e.g., marbled endpapers. Edges and joints expertly repaired. Very good. In an oatmeal cloth box, morocco label. American marine painter William Bradford, inspired by Elisha Kane and Lord Dufferin's accounts of the Arctic, spent five seasons between 1861 and 1867 sketching along the coast of Labrador. In 1869, with the patronage of Le Grand Lockwood, he sailed as far north as Baffin Island and Melville Bay on a purpose-built arctic steamer The Panther, commanded by Captain John Bartlett and manned by a hand-picked Newfoundland crew. The expedition took place during the summer of 1869 "solely for the purposes of art," although Bradford and his companions did find time for hunting (see photograph facing page 64). Bradford sketched and drew, and, according to recent scholarship, possibly took some of the photographs. Technical advice on the running of the expedition was provided by Dr. Isaac Hayes, an old Arctic- hand, who had first gone North with Elisha Kane's expedition of 1853-55. Accompanying Bradford were photographers John Dunmore and George Cricherson, from the well-regarded James Wallace Black Studio in Boston. "The three-month summer trip to the far North was a complete success. Not only did the expedition yield Bradford enough sketches and photographs to furnish him with motifs for years, but the published account of the journey became one of the nineteenth century's most spectacular photographically illustrated travel books ... The book was subsidized by Queen Victoria herself, along with several other members of the British Royal family, and there is no doubt that the volume is one of the most sumptuous of the century" - Parr & Badger. Looking at the photographs it is easy to imagine the hardships that this pair must have endured. Using relatively primitive large-format plate cameras in highly hostile conditions, Dunmore and Critcherson managed to capture the majestic beauty of the region. As Bradford wrote in his preface: "They were indefatigable in their efforts to overcome the obstacles which were constantly presented, and which appeared really to have no end." Their photographs "may be counted not only amongst the earliest, but also the best polar photographs ... they conveyed both the harsh grandeur of the landscape through which they travelled, and the rigours of polar travel. They also contributed to, indeed largely invented, that staple of Arctic expedition photography, the tiny ship struggling through towering sheets of ice -- the classic, but nevertheless compelling cliché of man against the elements" (Parr & Badger). Although no limitation is given, fewer than 300 copies of the work are thought to have been published. Contemporary advertisements reveal that even with the patronage received the publisher's price was an extraordinary 25 guineas. Of the extant examples, the large work is often found in very poor condition, with significant edge fading, as well as offsetting from facing images. The present set, from the library of noted collector Richard Manney, is in lovely condition, with strong contrasts and colors to the images. PARR & BADGER I, p.31.

        Zur Erinnerung an die Feier ihrer Goldenen Hochzeit am 8. December 1872 in Osnabrück von dem Jubelpaare Carl und Charlotte Gosling.

Orig.-Leinenband mit goldgeprägter Deckelvignette und Goldschnitt. - Widmungsexemplar. Sehr seltener Privatdruck. -Carl Hermann Gosling war einer der erfolgreichsten Unternehmerpersönlichkeiten im 19. Jahrhundert, u. a. bekleidete er das Amt des ersten Präsidenten der Industrie- und Handelskammer Osnabrücks. Ferner wirkte er als Senator im Magistrat der Stadt, vertrat sie u. a. 1862 auf der Weltausstellung in London. Das »Haus Gosling« war unzweifelhaft eine der ersten Adressen der »Friedensstadt«. -»Am 8. 12. 1872, dem Tage der Goldenen Hochzeit des Kaufmanns und Branntweinfabrikanten Carl Hermann Gosling (1798-1876) und der Margarete Sophie Charlotte Gosling, [.] schloss sich der Kreis: Carl Hermann Gosling war auf dem Höhepunkt seiner Karriere angekommen. Gesellschaftlich geachtet, politisch einflussreich und wirtschaftlich erfolgreich, im Kreise seiner Familie war er sich selbst und anderen ein lehrreiches Beispiel dafür, was ein Mann im Leben erreichen konnte. Die Feier der Goldenen Hochzeit wurde zum Symbol seiner Macht. Er setzte sich selbst ein Denkmal zur bleibenden Erinnerung.« (Birgit Panke-Kochinke. In: Karl Heinrich Kaufhold und Markus A. Denzel (Hrsg.), Der Handel im Kurfürstentum/Königreich Hannover. 2000, S. 249). - Die beiden lith. Titelblätter mit Golddruck zeigen das Gratulantenpaar in idealisierter Darstellung sowie sechs Ansichten der Stadt. - Die beiden Originalfotografien zeigen die Eheleute Gosling im Festtagsschmuck und eine Straßenansicht der Häuser Große Straße 53ff mit dem Stammhaus Nr. 54, das seit 1727 im Gosling'schen Besitz war. Im Hof dieses Gebäudes wurde 1821 eine Spirituosenbrennerei eröffnet (1840 an den Neuen Graben verlegt). Die Straßenansicht ist so nicht mehr vorhanden. - Die vier Tafeln spiegeln die im Text beschriebenen »Lebenden Bilder« wieder. - Ein Widmungsblatt vorne mit goldgedrucktem Rahmem mit einer handschriftlichen Widmung mit eigenhändigen Unterschriften der Eheleute Carl und Charlotte Gosling, datiert »July 1873«. Die ganzseitige Widmung richtet sich an die aus Sachsen angereisten Heydenreich-Familie. Dessen Tochter war mit dem jüngsten Sohn der Gosling-Familie vermählt. Ob die Widmung durchgängig eigenhändig von C. H. Gosling geschrieben ist, lässt sich nicht zweifelsfrei sagen. - Das Buch selbst schildert die Festivitäten und im Anhang eine Liste mit den Gästen. - Angebunden: Auszug aus den Gosling'schen Stammtafeln nebst einer Familien-Chronik. 16 Seiten. - Gedächtnissworte am Sarge und am Grabe [.] Herrn Georg Gosling [.] 1833 [.] 1897 gesprochen von B.

        Twenty Thousand leagues Under the Sea

      James osgood, boston 1873 - The novel was originally serialized from March 1869 through June 1870 in Pierre-Jules Hetzel's periodical, the Magasin d'Éducation et de Récréation. The deluxe illustrated edition, published by Hetzel in November 1871, included 111 illustrations by Alphonse de Neuville and Édouard Riou.[1] The book was highly acclaimed when released and still is now; it is regarded as one of the premiere adventure novels and one of Verne's greatest works, along with Around the World in Eighty Days and Journey to the Center of the Earth. The description of Nemo's ship, called the Nautilus, was considered ahead of its time, as it accurately describes features on submarines, which at the time were very primitive vessels. Thus, the book has been able to age well because of its scientific theories, unlike some of Verne's other works, like Journey to the Center of the Earth, which are not scientifically accurate and serve more simply as adventure novels. This is the very rare true American first and one of a handful that remains to this day. In green boards with gilt inlays and brown end papers this has the publisher Osgood on the spine and "the End" as the last words. A better copy than what is usually found which makes this one of the rarest of the rare. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
