        3 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Ghazir (Libanon), 1874.. Zus. 11 S., 4°.. "[...] As a counter-reaction to Van Dyck's Protestant translation, the Jesuits of Beirut started to prepare their own Catholic translation [into Arabic] of the Bible soon after. The first volume of this work was published in 1876, with the whole New Testament in 1878, and the complete Bible already in 1880. The main contributors in the translator team were Father Augustin Rodet and Sheikh Ibrahim al-Yaziji [...]" (Wikipedia). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

        Two page ALS by General Charles Gordon, Governor of the Equatorial Africa written from \"Entrance of Subat River\" to a comrade discussing his life as the new Commander in the Sudan: \"You see ostriches and giraffes, but if you kill one what is the use of it? The natives are utterly uninteresting naked savages, nothing more than animals who are always hungry.\"

      The letter dated July 15, 1874 reads in full, \"My dear Newsome, Read and send on. I hope you and your uncle are well. I am all right, and in good spirits. I am glad to say this is a good sign for when a man gets depressed he is likely to get fever. Are you continuing your visits to London, how tired you must be of the train. I have had no news since I left Cairo except one batch of old letters dated on 10th March. How is the club? And the Wrottesleys. I never was so glad as I am at not having a large staff. The trouble I have had with the little one I have got was far more than I have had with the slavers. There is very little shooting as far as I can see. You come across large herds of antelopes but they are some off, and are very shy. You see ostriches and giraffes, but if you kill one what is the use of it? The natives are utterly uninteresting naked savages, nothing more than animals who are always hungry. My great amusement is my doctoring the soldiers. I am now a pretty good medical man for the ordi

        The Dieyerie tribe of Australian Aborigines

      Adelaide: W.C. Cox, 1874. Octavo, 51 pp., early ink owner's name on title and first page (Wm. Tomsett of Queenstown 1874), a few spots, paper repairs to final two leaves; very good in a modern binding. The Aboriginal Tribes near Cooper's Creek. First edition, and an important account of the customs of the Dieyerie tribe (now more commonly "Diyari" or "Diery") of the area around Cooper's Creek north of Adelaide. It is based, the author notes, on 'a sojourn of over nine years in the Dieyerie country, and constant intercourse with the tribe, having familiarized me with their language, and their manners and customs'. Samuel Gason joined the South Australian Police force in 1865 at the age of twenty three and was stationed at Lake Hope. He was promoted to Mounted Constable Second class the following year. One of his most difficult tasks while at Lake Hope was negotiating with local Aborigines who were taking sheep from graziers, a conflict he seems to have managed with good sense. His tenure included the heavy flooding of 1870, during which he reported the deaths of 17 Aborigines. In 1871 Gason was transferred to Barrow Creek, where he witnessed the attack on the Telegraph Station. Gason's work was considered a most useful amateur contribution, and was used in the later compendium The Native Tribes of South Australia (Adelaide, 1879).

        Collection of 14 offprints on physiology

      1874-1896. <p>Mosso, Angelo (1846-1910). Collection of 14 offprints on physiology, as listed below. 1874-96. Most offprints in original wrappers; see list for individual condition statements. The majority of the offprints are from the library of Johann Friedrich Miescher (1844-95), the first to identify and isolate DNA; nos. 7, 10 and 11 below bear Mosso&#146;s presentation inscriptions to Miescher. Two of the offprints (nos. 6 and 9) bear Mosso&#146;s presentation inscriptions to German physiologist Gustav von Bunge (1844-1920). </p><p>First Editions, Offprint Issues. The Italian physiologist Mosso, a student of Carl Ludwig, was one of the pioneers in the use of machines to graphically register physiological phenomena. He was the first to use neuroimaging techniques to measure changes in blood flow to the brain caused by mental activity, and he also invented the plethysmograph for measuring slow changes in the volume of blood vessels. </p><p>These 14 offprints illustrate the breadth of Mosso&#146;s physiological researches, which included important investigations of blood circulation, motor functions, respiration and the relationship between physiological and psychic phenomena. &#147;The importance of Mosso&#146;s physiological research lies in his emphasis on experimenting directly on man whenever possible, as well as on animals, so that his research was truly in human physiology. His scientific experiments were carried out with special equipment, which he devised to suit the requirements of the studies . . . Mosso carried out highly accurate studies on movements of both smooth and striated muscles, in relation to a great variety of physiological and pathological conditions . . . he studied the variations in the frequency and energy of cardiac systoles, the increase of blood flow into the brain, and the increase of blood pressure in situations that today would be described as those of intellectual or emotional stress&#148; (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). </p><p>Most of these offprints are from the library of Johann Friedrich Miescher, who was the first to identify and isolate the cell nucleus compounds now known as DNA; three of the offprints below bear Mosso&#146;s presentation inscriptions to Miescher. Two of the offprints bear Mosso&#146;s presentation inscriptions to German physiologist Gustav von Bunge, best known for his contributions to nutrition physiology. Several of the offprints are from the Archives italiennes de biologie, the journal that Mosso founded in 1882. </p><p>1. Von einigen neuen Eigenschaften der Gefässwand.

        The Ten Little Mulligan Guards

      New York: McLoughlin Brothers, 1874. Soft Cover. Very Good. Soft Cover. Oblong 8vo. Complete with 12 leaves including the cover. Each page (printed on one side only) shows a colorful representation of the ever decreasing Mulligan ranks. Light wear. Clean pages with an occasional smudge. Very neatly mended spine and faint corner crease on front cover; otherwise near fine. No doubt inspired by Harrigan&#39;s incredibly successful series of Broadway shows about the Mulligan Guards, a fictionallly inept Irish fraternal organization. Much like the notorious "Ten Little Niggers," the guards die off one by one on each page, which includes new lyrics to the score of the chorus of the hit song, "The Mulligan Guard." The penultimate guard to die is "The Nig," (and African-American) who appears in nearly every illustration. Instructions for using the book to play a game are on the last page.

Zu I: Zweite, um 100 Seiten vermehrte Auflage dieses fundamentalen Werkes. - Robert Mayer (1818-1878), Arzt aus Heilbronn, erlangte seine Berühmtheit durch die Entdeckung des Prinzips von der Erhaltung der Energie und dessen Anwendung auf die Thermodynamik. So konnte er 1842 seine Hypothese von der Äquivalenz zwischen Arbeit und Wärme durch die Einführung des mechanischen Wärmeäquivalents in dem Zeitschriftenartikel "Bemerkungen über die Kräfte der unbelebten Natur" bestätigen. 1845 berechnete er dieses aus der Differenz der beiden spezifischen Wärmen im Aufsatz "Die organische Bewegung in ihrem Zusammenhange mit dem Stoffwechsel". Beide Aufsätze blieben in der Fachwelt nahezu unbeachtet, bis sie zusammen mit 3 weiteren Abhandlungen in obigem Werk veröffentlicht wurden. Die Bedeutung dieser Errungenschaft reicht weit über die Grenzen der Physik hinaus. - Eisert 25; Poggendorff III, 890. - Zu II: Seltene erste Ausgabe der beiden bereits 1875 und 1876 in der "Besondere(n) Beilage des Staatsanzeigers für Württemberg" erschienenen Aufsätze und zugleich letzte Veröffentlichung Mayers. - Eisert 29; Poggendorff III, 890. - Name auf Titel.

        [French mycology manuscript]. [France, 1920?]. 34 parts. 8vo. With each described species illustrated in watercolour and pencil and on nearly all occasions also illustrating details and other stages of development. Each part sewn as a single quire without title-page, covered in a modern transparent paper.

      Unpublished, extensively illustrated taxonomic mycology manuscript covering 67 numbered genera of fungi found in France, each extensively described and with illustrations of numerous species (also numbered) of the relevant genus. The manuscript, made by an anonymous but evidently very knowledgeable author, covers species collected in France from 1874 to 1920. The information given for each species includes the scientific name, the common French name, a statement concerning its rarity, a detailed physical description and sometimes some comments on different varieties, the season and place in which it is more likely to be found, and the edibility, smell and taste. The descriptions are also often accompanied by a footnote on where and when the particular species was found.Although the text is nearly complete, some unfinished drawings and texts seem to suggest the author left the manuscript not quite finished. This end would likely be in 1920, the latest year reported for the discovery of a species. Although the species were collected over several decades, the manuscript appears to have been produced in a short period of time, without any major changes in style. A few occasional minor stains and thumbing, otherwise in very good condition.

        Album with Die-Cut Figures Pasted onto Watercolors of Mostly Italian Scenery

      1874. Very Good Minus. An unusual, idiosyncratic, beautiful, at times, funny, album. Oblong, 24 by 32 cm. 26 leaves, of which eleven are full page watercolors with die-cuts of figures and some paraphernalia pasted on. The remaining leaves feature small chromolithographic cards, costume, artwork and/or humorous, pasted neatly onto page. Dominating the album are Italianate and humorous caricature imagery, with these two aspects not necessarily the same. The watercolored pages read a bit like the watercolored part serves as the backdrop for the comical actions of the figures pasted mostly into the foreground. Thus in one we see an interior in which an artist is working on an oval canvas of a nude, a nude women, presumably the model, looking over his shoulder, and two dressed women looking on, one from behind a draped doorway. In another, we see a sweeping bay with the cut-out people bathing or lolling on the banks. Perhaps the most vivid is that depicting a ballet performance with the stage fully occupied with die-cut ballerinas. Rebacked. Soiling to the margins. Some rough edges.

        Quartorze Ans aux Iles Sandwich

      Paris: Libraire Hachette & Cie., 1874. Two parts in one volume, two folding engraved maps; original yellow wrappers bound in, three quarter green morocco, light foxing but a very good copy. First edition of the account by Charles Victor Crosnier de Varigny (1829 1899) on the years he spent on the Hawaiian Archipel. De Varigny writes about the history of Hawaii. In the second part of the present work he elaborates on the recent history, extended with his own experiences in politics. Because De Varigny had been a minister in the Hawaiian government for several years he had access to the state archives, an important source for his account. He writes in his preface: "C&#39;est assez dire que je ne me suis appuy‚ que sur des documents authentiques. La ou ils m&#39;ont manque, j&#39;ai du faire appel aux recits personnels, aux traditions de famille et surtout aux vieux chants indigenes, recueil inepuisable et varie qui commence malheureusement a disparaitre." For example, in the first chapter De Varigny narrates of the famous voyage of Captain James Cook to the isle of Hawaii, where the well-known sailor died in 1779. De Varigny gives an example here of a native Hawaiian legend on this event. He prefers this version to the English account by Ledyard, as being more authentic and original.

        A Journey to the Centre of the Earth

      Boston: Henry L. Shepard & Co, 1874. Second American Edition. Cloth. Very Good. [ Edouard ] Riou. [ Edouard ] Riou. Second American Edition. vi, [1], [1 blank], 9-294 pages. Handsome original red pictorial binding showing "the explorers aboard their raft in the volcano" on the front cover. Front hinge just starting to crack, light browning to the paper internally and minor wear to the extremities of the binding. Front cover is still bright, the spine somewhat faded. Cloth. Second American edition of Verne&#39;s second book. The first edition of this work (Verne&#39;s second book) was published serially by Frank Leslie. The first American edition was published by Scribner, Armstrong in Nov 8, 1873 based on the English translation by Griffith and Farran. The example offered here, the second American edition of Verne&#39;s second book, was published by Henry L. Shepard & Co as a cheap edition, and announced in the July 1, 1874 issue of American Booksellers Guide, Shepard intended this edition to compete with the Scribner Armstrong edition of 1873. Other than the binding, which is quite nice, the production values show a less detailed eye - offsetting from other sheets, broken type in places, etc. Taves and Michaluk (V002) note the Scribner Armstrong edition contains 52 full page woodcut illustrations by Riou. This copy by Shepard has 2 figures with lanterns on the spine, and the 15 called for illustrations, with one further (Prof von Hardwigg) plus the vignette on the title page. Scribner responded to Shepard&#39;s challenge with a popular edition in plain cloth later in 1874 with 20 illustrations of their own. A nice early edition of this Verne classic not often found in the marketplace. Taves & Michaluk V002.

        Artist&#39;s Sketchbook of Pacific drawings , made during his exile to New Caledonia in 1874-1877

      at sea and in New Caledonia: 1874-, 1877. Oblong portfolio of beige (sail?) cloth, 160 x 235 mm., pencil illustrations throughout, some on grey paper (see catalogue note), pen and ink drawing on card tipped-on to front paste-down as impromptu book-plate; the pictures generally in very good condition, the binding with evidence of strong use, some stains and a few small tears. New Caledonia as drawn by a French artist. Interesting and lively portfolio of original drawings made during exile in New Caledonia, by a renowned French artist and winner of the Prix de Rome. Several of the finer drawings depict life on board the Virginie, the ship on which he was deported, and there are besides several very good sketches of New Caledonian scenes; without doubt the most interesting showing a boisterous tribal dance. Charles Capellaro (1826-1899) was a well-regarded French sculptor who regularly exhibited at the Salon during the 1860s. A prominent member of the 1871 Paris Commune, Capellaro was lucky to escape the death penalty in the Commune&#39;s bloody aftermath, and on 13 May 1872 was condemned to be deported to the Île des Pins in New Caledonia. Intriguingly, however, in 1870 he had been awarded the commission for a statue for the façade of Saint Eustache church, and he continued to work on the commission even after his imprisonment. Indeed, his deportation in 1874 seems to have been actively delayed while he continued to work, and that year he even managed to have another statue exhibited in the Salon. He was, Sánchez has written, a peculiar anomaly, &#39;an artist producing state-sponsored work from prison&#39; (Gonzalo J. Sánchez, Organizing Independence: the artists federation of the Paris Commune, p. 128). However, his sentence finally caught up with him, and Capellaro arrived on the Île des Pins in late 1874, already agitating for his freedom. Fellow artists in Paris did not forget him , and due to their efforts in 1877 his sentence was commuted to ten-years banishment. He returned to Brussels, finagled a three-month visa for Paris, and returned home. During his three years in New Caledonia, Capellaro was unable to sculpt on a grand scale, although he did continue to draw (several of his drawings are now in the Musée du Quay Branly) and he did sculpt with the cruder materials available, including executing a clay head of Samuel, King of the Isle of Pines (now in the State Library of New South Wales). A card (75 x 115 mm.) mounted on the inside cover introduces the album, with a caption which reads &#39;à bord de la Virginie, le 12 octobre 1874&#39;, and a small cartouche dedicating the work to his wife, children, and friends, signed C. Capellaro. Otherwise the portfolio contains six detailed drawings of life on board ship, including one of four matelots clustered around the wheel with, at right, an artist sketching - perhaps meant to be Capellaro himself. Another dramatic image shows the three-masted vessel pitching in a fierce storm. There are also seven drawings dealing with Polynesia, made in black and white pencil (the whites in so-called "mine de plomb"). This series includes several views of ports taken from on board including one three-page panorama (sadly not captioned, but perhaps detailed enough to make identification possible), as well as scenes of a Melanesian dance evidently witnessed by Capellaro, and an idealised portrait of a topless woman under a palm. Lastly, there are also some 20 sheets of drawings on different subjects, and it seems likely that Capellaro drew these pictures after he had returned home. The drawings show portraits of European people, classical images, studies of sculptures and a chasseur d&#39;Afrique. One, a study of a monumental sculpture on tissue-paper, is signed "C. Capellaro

        Autograph Letter Signed, in German, 8vo., Giessen, 25th April 1850 laid down on conjugate blank.

      - Liebig at Giessen pioneered the use of chemical laboratories for students, as opposed to mere lectures, and his pupils came from all over Europe. He made fundamental advances in inorganic and organic chemistry, particularly descriptions in terms of radicals. He then turned to applied human and animal chemistry, then agriculture, which he considered the foundation of all trade and industry, and to fertilizers. He is also famous for his food for children and for LiebigÕs Ôextract of meatÕ. Graham is famous for his law on the rate of diffusion of gases. Gladstone became Professor at the Royal Institution in 1874. To Dr. John Hall Gladstone, F.R.S., (1827-1902, English chemist), saying that he has ñjust got back from a trip that took me away from Giessen for several weeks, thanking him for his letter of April 18 and your paper about the behaviou of sulphur when added to PCl 5. This will be recorded in one of the next issues of the Annals. The news that you have been able to confirm the chlorine, phosphorus and nitrogen compound, thus obtaining a new tri-basic acid, was of enormous interest to me.As my health is now so much better, the course of lectures I am giving this summer no longer causes me any anxiety. Please give my respects to Prof. Graham [Thomas Graham, 1805-1869, Professor of Chemistry at University College, London, 1837-1855], he is certainly in the best position for giving you the means to determine small amounts of light carburetted hydrogen.î These last three words are written in English. Signed, Dr. Just Liebig.

        The Coming Race

      Rutledge, USA 1874 - This is the very rare first edition of a good + book with some damage to the top and bottom of spine and some bumping on the corners. It has a small bookplate from W. H. Fair, dentist who offers artificial teeth for modest prices. There is some browning of the pages typical of a book this old, otherwise it is a nice tight copy of a cult classic and one of the landmark books in science fiction history. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
