John Ruskin
London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1873. In the original publishers cloth binding, and signed by the author. Number of a limited edition set of 1000. A leading Victorian art critic, as well as a noted watercolourist, Riskin was particularly influential in the second half of the Nineteenth Century and up until the First World War, the aftermath of which saw his reputation dampen somwhat until the publication of numerous academic studieas of his work, where he was recognised as having predicted interest in environmentalism and sustainability. Here, Ruskin's considerable expertise are a the forefront. The first volume argues, in the form of an extended defence of J.M.W. Turner, that painters that were then emerging from the tradition of picturesque were superior at the art of landscape than the old masters. Initially written as a standalone work, subsequent volumes would be written later. The second volume, originally published in 1846, placed emphasis on the symbolism in art, especially regarding nature; the third is of 'many things' in the author's own words; whereas volumes IV and V concentrate on the depiction of mountains and leaves, clouds and relativity respectively. Contains eighty-four illustrative plates and engravings, collated complete. CONDITION In decorative cloth binding with gilt detailing. Externally sound, there is some marking and wear to the boards, as well as wear to the extremities, backstrip and joints. The spines are also somewhat rubbed. Internally, the pages are firmly bound but foxed throughout. The illustrations and text remain clear in each volume. Overa … [Click Below for Full Description]

MAXWELL, James Clerk.
Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1873. First edition. First edition, first issue, 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 t … [Click Below for Full Description]

Jules Verne
James R Osgood and Company. Spine a little loose, bends at top and bottom of spine, scuffing at top and bottom from shelf wear, small speckles of white on front and spine. Inscribed inside front, from Grandma. Foxing at front and on tissue overlay for frontispiece. Foxing visible at top of block: please see pictures. Nice copy of this one: dated 1873, this is the second American edition, printed by Gilbert and Rivington in London for James R. Osgood and Company of Boston. Engraved plates augment the text with wonderful visual commentary and are intact as far as I can tell. Translated by George Towle. The second printing occurred quite soon after the first as the first had production problems which caused the spine to crack. Has the sketch of Verne's yacht, the Saint Michel across from the introduction while the frontispiece is a lovely portrait of Phileas Fogg. There is foxing on the tissue overlay which has traveled to the paper on the portrait and the title page. Green cloth cover with gilt rectangles at top and bottom of page with the lettering in green spelling out the title and a black outline drawing of Fogg on the pier between. Equally embellished spine with black geometric design at top, gilt circle with title inside, with a Chinese (?) person in gilt below. White speckles, very light, on bottom half of spine and a few others on front. Top of spine is bent, small tears to the bottom. Good Condition: 8vo (7 3/4" X 5 1/2" X 1 1/2"), green Cloth with gilt and black decorations on boards, spine equally prettily decorated. Small white speckles on spine primarily.

I think it is safe to assume that these Commentaries on the Constitution were part of the "car load" acquired by Gulley described in that screenshot.

John Ruskin
London: Smith, Elder and Co, 1873. In the original publishers cloth binding, and signed by the author. Number of a limited edition set of 1000. A leading Victorian art critic, as well as a noted watercolourist, Riskin was particularly influential in the second half of the Nineteenth Century and up until the First World War, the aftermath of which saw his reputation dampen somwhat until the publication of numerous academic studieas of his work, where he was recognised as having predicted interest in environmentalism and sustainability. Here, Ruskin's considerable expertise are a the forefront. The first volume argues, in the form of an extended defence of J.M.W. Turner, that painters that were then emerging from the tradition of picturesque were superior at the art of landscape than the old masters. Initially written as a standalone work, subsequent volumes would be written later. The second volume, originally published in 1846, placed emphasis on the symbolism in art, especially regarding nature; the third is of 'many things' in the author's own words; whereas volumes IV and V concentrate on the depiction of mountains and leaves, clouds and relativity respectively. Contains eighty-four illustrative plates and engravings, collated complete. In decorative cloth binding with gilt detailing. Externally sound, there is some marking and wear to the boards, as well as wear to the extremities, backstrip and joints. The spines are also somewhat rubbed. Internally, the pages are firmly bound but foxed throughout. The illustrations and text remain clear in each volume. Overall Conditi … [Click Below for Full Description]

MUYBRIDGE, Eadweard James (1830-1904)
San Francisco: Bradley & Rulofson, 1873. Mammoth plate albumen photograph, mounted onto the photographer's lettered card mount. Image size: 17 x 21 1/2 inches. Sheet size: 24 3/8 x 29 1/2 inches. Rare mammoth-plate photograph of Yosemite by Muybridge. "Muybridge was justifiably celebrated as a landcape photographer for his series of mammoth-plate Yosemite views made [between June and December] in 1872 and offered for sale by Bradley and Rulofson in 1873. These fifty one ambitious photographs were made in direct competition with C.E. Watkins's equally acclaimed views of 1861-1866." Muybridge's 1872 Yosemite photographs were "his most significant and last extensive body of landscape photographs. Drama was the foremost quality in Muybridge's esthetic, and he continued to place heavy emphasis on unique points of view to achieve dramatic intensity" (Naef). As an artist, Muybridge is acclaimed not only for his compositions, but also his deliberate choice of points of view, which were often contrary with the realities of the difficult terrain. Comparisons between the Yosemite photographs of Muybridge and Watkins, both today and even at the time, are and were inevitable. They are perhaps summed up best by Naef, who describes the two photographers "as different as romanticism and classicism" and elsewhere as "painterly" (Muybridge) versus "sharp focus precision" (Watkins). Muybridge announced his intentions in a May 1872 prospectus which sought financial support for the Yosemite project prior to his expedition: "I am encouraged in this undertaking from the generally … [Click Below for Full Description]

[FENG-SHUI] EITEL, Ernest J.
Hong Kong: Lane, Crawford & Co, 1873. First Edition. Paperback. A foundational work for western readers, written by a German Protestant missionary, on the Chinese philosophy of Feng-Shui. Though by no means fully embracing its principles (Eitel has in fact been criticized for his somewhat dismissive attitute towards Chinese science and religion - not entirely surprising, given his mission), Eitel's appears to have been the earliest serious account of Feng-Shui for a western audience. The original owner, one Henry Liddell, is likely not the celebrated classicist, vice-chancellor of Oxford, and father of Alice (we find no evidence, at least, of this Liddell's having ever visited Shanghai). Another Henry Liddell, a medical doctor and missionary who published popular articles on Chinese culture for British and American magazines, appears the more likely candidate. A fragile publication, quite uncommon in commerce, this is a well-preserved copy notwithstanding the later cloth-tape reinforcement to spine. Octavo. Original printed paper wrappers with later red cloth spine reinforcement; 84pp; errata slip bound in at rear. Slight aging to wrappers, with repaired vertical tear and chipping to wrapper edges; text clean, tight and unmarked. Contemporary ownership signature of a Henry Liddell, Shanghai, at upper portion of front cover; later ownership signature in pencil of A. Van Vleck.

[RAMÍREZ Y FITA, Cayetano?].
Biblioteca de ex-coronel Pineda, vol. II (1873), p. 158; Dueñas de Anhalzer, "Marqueses, cacaoteros, y vecinos de Portoviejo", p. 289; WorldCat (2 copies); not in Medina; Palau; Sabin. Very rare pamphlet, printed in Lima, proclaiming the decision of the Canton of Portoviejo (in modern Ecuador) to join the Republic of Greater Colombia. The text was presumably written by the priest and revolutionary Cayetano Ramírez y Fita (1776-1854) and adapted in December 1821. Since the text was printed in Lima and refutations of the text appeared in a Guayaquil newspaper between May and June 1822, it is likely that the pamphlet appeared at the beginning of 1822.As part of the Spanish colonies in South-America, Portoviejo had been an important centre for conquistadors. In October 1820, as the Spanish empire in South-America was disintegrating, Portoviejo joined the other cities in the region of Guayaquil in declaring independence. The future of the region was uncertain as president Simón Bolívar of Colombia considered the region to be part of his state, while a number of movements in Guayaquil advocated joining the Republic of Peru. Portoviejo opposed to the rest of Guayaquil when in December 1821 its "cabildo" (administrative council) declared the canton to be part of the Republic of Colombia. Bolivár annexed the rest of the Province of Guayaquil in July 1822.With library stamps. Some small waterstains in the inner margins and a large waterstain at the head. Some small tears and folds near the edges and the title-page and last pages somewhat soiled; otherwise in good condition, edges unt … [Click Below for Full Description]
