        THE PRINCIPLES OF SCIENCE - A Treatise on Logic and Scientific Method Two Volume Set

      Macmillan and Co, New York, London 1874 - First Edition of this classic work on Logic and Scientific Method. Two octavo volumes in original brick cloth bindings with gilt lettering at spines. xvi, 463, (1); vii, (1), 480 pp. Engraved frontispiece illustration of The Logical Machine in Volume 1. Clean and tight with some light foxing to verso of endpapers, cloth rubbed at lower corners and spine ends, short tear to cloth at lower spine of Volume 2. Pages of Volume 2 unopened. Quite scarce in this First Edition, especially in the original cloth bindings. William Stanley Jevons was a noted logician, economist and statistician. Jevons' earlier books General Mathematical Theory of Political Economy (1862) and The Theory of Political Economy (1871) have been described as the beginning of applying mathematical method in economics. Jevons pursued his work in logic simultaneously with his work in political economy. In 1864 he published a small book Pure Logic; or, the Logic of Quality apart from Quantity, incorporating a critique of Boole's system of logic. In 1870 his Elementary Lessons on Logic appeared and became a widely used elementary textbook on logic. In 1874 Jevons published his most important work on logic and scientific method -- the work offerred here Principles of Science: A Treatise on Logic and Scientific Method. In addition to honing the material from his previous work on pure logic and the substitution of similars; in Principles of Science Jevons posits the idea that induction is an inverse application of deduction. His examination of the general theory of probability and the relationship between probability and induction is clear and illuminating. The entire work is enhanced by concrete scientific illustrations drawn from his broad knowledge of the various natural sciences. Jevons treatise was a very important contribution to the development of logic in the nineteenth century. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Iliada de Homero em verso portuguez por Manoel Odorico Mendes da Cidade de S. Luiz do Maranhão. Edictor e revisor, Henrique Alves de Carvalho, tambem natural do Maranhão.

      Rio de Janeiro, Typographia Guttemberg, 1874. - 8°, contemporary quarter morocco over marbled boards (corners worn), smooth spine richly gilt (minor wear at head) with short translator and title in gilt letter, tan endleaves. In good to very good condition. Old blue oval stamp on title page of Collegio do Espirito St.º, Braga. xl [i.e., xliv], [9]-312 pp., (1 l.). Preliminary pp. [ix]-xvi bound out of order, after p. xl. Following p. viii are two leaves with pp. numbered viii a, viii b, vi ii, and viii d. Except for the order of the preliminaries, the collation of the present volume is exactly the same as that in Harvard College Library. *** First and apparently Only Edition in Portuguese of the present translation. We could find no earlier complete translation of the Iliad into Portuguese. Book 1 only, translated by António Maria do Couto, with xv, 50, 8 pp., appeared in Lisbon, 1810. The same text appeared again in Lisbon, 1811, the translation attributed to José Maria da Costa e Silva, with a preface by José Agostinho de Macedo; it appeared again in Lisbon, 1830, attributed to both Couto and Silva. A translation from Book 6 of the Iliad, attributed to to Couto, and two other fragments are cryptically cited by Gonçalves Rodrigues for 1838 (A tradução em Portugal 4948-4950). Other cryptic entries refer to a fragment supposedly printed in 1839, and one of 1844 (Gonçalves Rorigues 5204 and 6138). A Portuguese translation of Homer's sixth canto, together with the first two cantos of Dante's Inferno, by António José Vale, of 43 pp., was published in Lisbon, 1854.Pages [ix]-xl contain a biography of Manoel Odorico Mendes by João Francisco Lisboa, which had originally appeared in the Revista contemporanea, IV, vii, 329-53, in October 1862. Lisboa was a native of Iguará, Maranhão (1812-Lisbon, 1863).Mendes (1799-1864), a native of São Luis do Maranhão, served as deputy in the legislature for Maranhão and Minas Geraes before retiring from politics and moving to Europe. He published some original poetry and a number of translations, including, in addition to the Iliad, the Odyssey, works of Voltaire and Virgil.Henrique Alves de Carvalho, a native of Maranhão, edited this posthumous work, and wrote the preface. He was also a deputy for his province to the national legislature, and edited several newspapers, including O futuro (Rio de Janeiro, 1869), and O Figaro (Rio de Janeiro, 1881).*** Sacramento Blake VI, 172-4 (giving incorrect date of publication, and incomplete collation). Innocêncio XVI, 278-80 (correct date; acknowledging "duplicações e accresimos em a numeração das páginas" but still getting the collation wrong); on Mendes see also VI, 72-5. For Henrique Alves de Carvalho see Sacramento Blake III, 210. For João Francisco Lisboa, see Sacramento Blake III, 433-5; also Innocêncio III, 378; X, 260-1; XI, 289.

        Spencer's Descriptive Sociology: A Cyclopaedia of Social Facts; Representing the Constitution of Every Type and Grade of Human Society, Past and Present, Stationary and Progressive, Classified and Tabulated for Easy Comparison and Convenient Study of the Relations of Social Phenomena

      1874 - New York: Appleton [1874-1881]. Folio,70, 72, 63, 48, 58, 56, 122, 158. Original red cloth over salmon colored boards lettered in black. First American edition of this monumental work of Victorian sociology with the integral title pages not present in the British edition. A complete set, comprising eight divisions: I. The English II. The Mexicans, Central Americans, Chibchas, and Peruvians III. Lowest Races, Negrito Races, and Malayo Polynesian Races IV. African Races V. Asiatic Races VI. American Races VII. Hebrews and Phoenicians VIII. French. Each volume with tables listing the physical and intellectual characteristics of the various races, alongside detailed descriptions of the cultural rituals and rites of each, compiled and abstracted by David Duncan, James Collier and Richard Scheppig. Some minor staining, rubbing and light soiling to all volumes, the boards of which somewhat unevenly toned, some being slightly darker than the others; front boards of Vol II and VI irregularly toned; top right corner of Vols III and VI lightly bumped with some reverberation throughout text block, outer margins of several pages in Vol IV nicked, spine cloth to Vol VII nicked, with dampstain to top right hand corner of front board, but internally and externally a clean, sound set of a scarce and important work. Spencer (1820-1903) was an exponent of evolution whose work preceded that of Darwin. At the time of his death he was perhaps the most celebrated European intellectual of the 19th century, and is perhaps best remembered for coining the phrase 'survival of the fittest' in his Principles of Biology (1864), after reading Darwin's On the Origin of Species. Although Spencer has often been accused of appropriating Darwin's ideas, his line of thought is radically different from Darwin's, and was much more heavily influenced by Lamarck's theory of inheritance. The complete set is scarce. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Bondekone med barn, hund og ko. Tusch og lavering.

      Signeret 'Til Frøken Anna Hansen fra Nicolai Habbe i Januar 1874'. 29x23 cm. I let beskadiget træramme [39,5x33 cm.].. Nicolai Habbes værker kan minde om W. Marstrands, hvilket undertiden har givet anledning til forveksling. H. havde som maler lært meget af Marstrand, en fast malerisk stil og en indtrængende karakteristik. Allerede omkring 1860 malede H. kraftige, impressionistiske billeder med livlig penselføring, der kan lede tanken hen på den stil, Krøyer og Tuxen tilegnede sig på Bonnats skole lang tid senere. Da H. gled ud af det danske kunstliv bosatte han sig permanent i Australien i 1875, hvor han hovedsagelig virkede som dekorations- og glasmaler. [Weilbach]

        Plan Shewing the ascertained deaths from cholera in part of the Parishes of St. James, Westminster, and St. Anne, Soho, during the summer and autumn of 1854

      London: George Stanford, 1874. unbound. Map. Colored engraving. Image measures 31.75 x 23". This rare map presents an tragic look at the regions in the parishes of St. James, Westminster, and St. Anne in Soho that were affected by the cholera epidemic or 'black death' during the 1854 Broad Street Cholera outbreak in London. The map extends from Oxford Street and Recent Circle south to Tichborne Street and east to Dean Street. Two areas are shaded in grey and represent 'Erroneously supposed position of the ancient plague pit shown in the map of the commissioners of sewers" and "Extent of craven estate corresponding with sites of pest-field". The map is detailed to the level of individual buildings, addresses, streets, pumps, sewer gates, side entrances, ventilators etc. Sewers are color-color coded according to year of completion. The map also marks the number of deaths classified by residents and non-residents.The Broad Street cholera outbreak of 1854 was the basis of John Snow's discovery that it was contaminated water and not air that spread cholera. John Snow, a physician at the time, conducted an elaborate investigation, after which he determined the source of the outbreak to be the public water pump at the intersection of Broad street (Broadwick Street) and Cambridge street (Lexington Street). This map reflects some of the work undertaken during the time of his investigations. .This particular map was issued in 1874 "Sixth Report of the Commissioners appointed in 1868 to inquire into the best means of preventing the pollution of rivers. The domestic water supply of Great Britain". The report was presented to both houses of Parliament by command of Her Majesty. The map is in very good condition with minor wear along the folds and some foxing. Map is ripped near top left margin where it was attached to the report with rip extending to the border.

      Otis Lithographic Printers. - Massive GENUINE Vintage 4 quad sheets Poster for CARTER THE GREAT. Measures Approx 106 x 80 Inches (265 x 195 cm approx). 4 sections. Each section has been professionally seen by a museum approved archival restorer about 4 years ago. Not that it needed it, but to preserve it as found. The image has NOT been touched each sheet was protected with a thin skin of special poster restoration material. No signs, no extra thickness, not noticed unless mentioned here. The images will speak for themselves and more can be provided if requested. It is a GENUINE period item and NOT a copy. **Charles Joseph Carter (June 14, 1874 ¿ February 13, 1936) was an American stage magician, also known as Carter the Great. A native of San Francisco, California, Carter began his career as a journalist and lawyer. As time passed, he grew an interest in magic. Due to stiff competition from the number of magic acts on the American stages at the time, Carter opted to pursue his career abroad, where he achieved his greatest fame. Among the highlights of Carter's stage performances during his career were the classic "cheating the gallows", where a shrouded Carter would vanish, just as he dropped at the end of a hangman's noose. This poster depicts the climax of that act. The Poster is done in lithography with the colours put on separately by the foremost America Film poster company OTIS of Cleveland. The colours are vibrant, there are some light creases now strengthened where the once rolled poster has been opened once to often, but these are now permanently sorted. No loss and still having the colour grid at border and also the measurement cross-hatching for the poster to be aligned when pasting up. A LOVELY and Unique POSTER that would suit a home with style, or for a Magic Museum type setting. Dates to about 1918-25 Carter (Charles Joseph) purchased the famous Martinka Magic Palace In San Fransisco in 1917, a time when he was unable to continue his lucrative world touring magic show. There was a story that he kept his lion, Monty in the back room of the shop and when it would roar, the startled customers would run for the door. He was the Magicians answer to Houdini who was an "escapologist". Carter was the consummate stage prestidigitator par-excellence, to Houdini's talented lock picking breath holding feats of the pre-Great War era. A fictionalized account of his life can be found in Carter Beats the Devil. This Poster with have with it a "SIGNED first edition of the 2001 UK 1st of this book Pre-dates the US version) AND a New York Tribune 1918 review of the "Temple of Magic" opened in 1918. This is a single page and is a facsimile of some sort, possibly 1950's-60's

        The Moon: Considered as a Planet, a World, and a Satellite

      London: John Murray, 1874. Second edition. Hardcover. Very Good. Original blue cloth with ornate border blindstamped on boards, gilt-stamped lettering on spine, illustration stamped in black and gilt on upper board; 4to; pp. 189, with 24 b/w tipped-in plates, and woodcut illustrations throughout. Light scuffing along joints and edges of boards; spine a little tanned, frayed at tips; front hinge starting; some faint foxing scattered throughout text block, as expected, and plates remain nice and crisp. A very cool look at the moon, featuring detailed images of its craters and volcanoes. Particularly beautiful and unusual is an image of a wrinkled hand juxtaposed with a wrinkled apple, "to illustrate the origin of certain mountain ranges resulting from shrinking of the interior." These images appeared in THE MOON as illustrations of a theory advanced by Nasmyth and Carpenter to explain its rough surface. They suggested that the moon had once been actively volcanic, but eventually lost enery and began to cool. As a result, its core contracted, leaving its crust loose and hanging, much like the skin of an aging body or a desiccated apple. The idea of contraction was a variation of the widely held nineteenth-century view of terrestrial geology -- the theory of plate tectonics wasn't devised until the 1960s -- but Nasmyth's and Carpenter's metaphoric leap to the physiology of the human hand was entirely their own.

      Illus. in the text. 32; 29 folding leaves. Two vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on upper covers, new stitching. Ehime Prefecture: 1874. First edition of this report issued by the prefecture of Ehime on Shikoku Island in southern Japan on the nascent tea industry. At the beginning of the Meiji period, there was a concerted governmental effort to develop industries and increase exports to alleviate the balance of payment problems. Leaf tea was one of the first agricultural commodities to be exported and Ehime prefecture was one of the principal areas where tea farming took place. This work describes the history of tea farming in the prefecture, farming techniques, special teas coming from the mountains, medical benefits of the local teas, agricultural equipment, harvesting and processing of the leaves (many illustrations are of the equipment used to roast and dry the leaves), the pottery (chatsubo) used to ship the tea, etc. Fine set. .

        Lady Anna.

      London: Chapman and Hall, , 1874. 2 volumes, octavo. Original reddish-brown cloth, spines lettered and decorated in gilt, front cover lettered and decorated in black, yellow coated endpapers. Bookplates of J. L. & E. B. Ketterlinus (of Philadelphia), Carroll Atwood Wilson (1886-1947) collector and bibliographer, brown morocco gilt book label with the monogram "SSB". Embossed stamp of W. H. Smith's circulating library on front free endpaper of volume I. Spines rolled and with a little wear to extremities, back joints partially split but sound, split across spine of volume II, scattered foxing. An attractive set in the original cloth. First UK edition; according to Sadleir there was a Tauchnitz edition dated 1873 "pre-dating English publication". From the library of Walter E. Smith, the pre-eminent modern bibliographer of 19th-century fiction and author of Anthony Trollope: A Bibliography of his First American Editions (2003), with his pencilled ownership inscription on the front free endpaper of volume I. The binding of volume II differs slightly from that of volume I in that the blind circular decoration on the back is small and of a different design (the blind border is also single-line rather than double-line); an interesting anomaly alluded to by Sadleir in the context of a "secondary" binding, although he concludes by saying that "the two styles [of binding] are so nearly alike that they may have been simultaneous". Trollope wrote Lady Anne in two months while steaming south on Brunel's SS Great Britain from Liverpool to Australia, accompanied by his wife and en route to visit their son Fred, who had taken up as a sheep farmer. "In every way Lady Anna is, and was surely intended to be, an iconoclastic book. The Saturday Review critic called it 'the sort of thing the reading public will never stand except in a period of political storm and ferment'... Why did Lady Anna arouse so violent a revulsion? Is it a novel of adultery, atheism or sexual perversion? No; it is an admirable and moving novel about a dead earl's heiress daughter who chooses to marry a young journeyman-tailor from Keswick, an idealist who holds radical views, and has been her childhood sweetheart. Apart from its own excellence as a tale, Lady Anna's reception by the public casts a clear beam on to Victorian prejudices and is thus of socio-historical interest to us today" (James Pope Hennessy, Anthony Trollope, 1971, p. 311).

The following 20 or so pages have very severe foxing as can be seen in the pictures (please see the video) after that it is clean inside. Tape to the spine and no rear cover but a very rare book, odd dog ear to the rear pages. Please see the large pictures. More available on request. Please see the Video for more info

      [Colorado & Arizona, 1874. Minor foxing to one image, light edge wear. Very good. A choice selection of five important photographs taken by esteemed photographer William Henry Jackson during the latter years of Ferdinand V. Hayden's primary survey of the American West. Hayden's survey explored large portions of the American West for the first time, and these five images by Jackson represent some of the earliest and famous views of the high central Rocky Mountains and the cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde. Hayden spent the first two years of his survey work in Wyoming, largely in the area that would become Yellowstone National Park. In 1873, he shifted his operations south, mindful that Colorado offered a more practical area for settlement and development than the picturesque but remote Yellowstone. The 1873 season saw the creation of a single crew dedicated to photographic operations under William Henry Jackson, while separate geological crews scattered across the territory. This gave Jackson considerably more freedom of motion, and he was able to roam widely along the front range and into the high Rockies, resulting in some of his most famous photographs, including the image from Berthold Pass included here. The next year was again spent in Colorado, and once again Jackson operated as a separate crew. His primary focus was the south central and southwestern part of the Territory, not visited by any other photographers. While the landscape photographs taken on this campaign are as magnificent as any taken previously, they inevitably take a back seat to one of the great discoveries in American archaeology. In September of 1874, working west from Durango, Jackson and his assistants were taken by a local rancher to the site now known as Mesa Verde. The photographer became the first to record the extraordinary cliff dwellings that are now some of the most famous places in the continental United States, three of which are included here. The five photographs in this selection are as follows: 1) "65. North from Berthoud Pass." Colorado. 2) "79. Middle Park. East from Mt. Bross." Colorado. 3) "281. Casa del Eco. Rio San Juan." Mesa Verde, Arizona. 4) "283. Cave Town on the Rio de Chelley. Arizona." Mesa Verde, Arizona. 5) "284. Cave Town on the Rio de Chelley. Arizona." Mesa Verde, Arizona. Hayden and Jackson are responsible for some of the earliest and most famous photographs of the American West, typified by the present selection.

      U. S. Printing Office, Washington, D. C. 1874 - Report of Lieutenant E. H. Ruffner, Corps of Engineers to William W. Belknap, Secretary of War, on the Reconnaissance in the Ute Country (Colorado), Season of 1873. Original 100-page report plus original map, drawn by Assistant H. G. Proutt, C.E. and printed by N. Peters, Photo-Lithographers, Washington, D.C. Extracted from House of Representatives publication, 43rd Congress, 1st Session, Ex. Doc. No. 193. Condition of 100-page report: near fine; complete charts and tables. "Preliminary Map of the Surveys in Colorado made on Reconnoissance in the Ute Country, under the direction of 1st Lieut. E. H. Ruffner, Engineers, Chief Engineer Department of the Missouri, by Assistant H. G. Proutt, C.E., 1873." Map dimensions: 26 inches by 21 inches. This reconnaissance, and resulting report and map, was inspired by the silver and gold discoveries made in the late 1860s on the newly reformed Ute Reservation in the San Juan Mountains of the Colorado Territory. After Chief Ouray agreed to yet another "peace treaty" with the U. S. Government, the Utes were once again subjected to a loss of the property and consolidated on yet another smaller sections of land known as the Los Pinos Agency and the White River Agency. This consolidation opened up Colorado's Elk Mountains to more prospecting and mineral discoveries, allowing the development of the Ruby Mining and the Aspen Mining districts. Map condition: very good; some light conservation on back of map to secure folds; a touch of tanning at some folds. Report condition: near fine; not bound. [Attributes: First Edition]

      Washington, 1874. Card 47 creased vertically down the center, not affecting images; small chip in one photo on card 49. Overall the images are bright and clean, and in near fine condition. Each card in a mylar sleeve, within the original cloth box. All in a half morocco and cloth clamshell case, spine gilt. A fine series of stereoscopic views from Lieut. George Wheeler's 1871-74 expedition in the West, one of the first systematic surveys of the north rim of the Grand Canyon. The expedition was a large-scale government topographical and geological survey of the region west of the 100th meridian, including Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona, and Idaho. These photographs, taken by the expedition photographer, Timothy O'Sullivan, and his interim replacement, William Bell, are numbered 1 to 50 on the rear of the mounts, which also bear captions identifying the scenes. The series begins with an image of the starting point for O'Sullivan's photographic work on the expedition, aboard small boats about to ascend the Colorado from Camp Mohave, Arizona, and continues more or less chronologically. The photographic crew set their own pace, on a boat named Picture. Included here are photographs of the Grand Canyon, New Mexico pueblos, Zuni villages, Navahos, Apaches, and many beautiful landscapes, by these two major American photographers of the West. In 1872, O'Sullivan left the Wheeler survey to work for Clarence King's 40th Parallel Exploration; but he returned in 1873 to accompany Wheeler in Arizona, New Mexico, the Sierra Blanca Mountains, and Canyon de Chelly. During O'Sullivan's absence, a British-born photographer named William Bell served as his replacement. Late in 1873, O'Sullivan did his last work in the West, photographing Shoshone Falls on the Snake River (in southern Idaho). The last seventeen views here, though dated 1874, must be from 1873, since O'Sullivan had by then apparently returned east. This is a complete series of fifty stereoscopic views issued to display and promote the government sponsored topographical survey of the West. Such complete series are seldom met with these days. A list of the photographs here follows: 1) "The start from Camp Mojave, Arizona. September 15, 1871." O'Sullivan. 2) "View across Black Ca?'on. The grand walls in perspective." O'Sullivan. 3) "View down Black Ca?'on from Mirror Bay. The walls repeated by reflection." O'Sullivan. 4) "Grotto Spring. Grand Ca?'on. Colorado River." O'Sullivan. 5) "Types of Mohave Indians."

First Edition of the first version. Hopkinson 3A(a), citing just one other copy of the first edition with the plate number printed to any of the pages, at the Bibliothèque nationale, Paris. Gatti: Verdi nelle Immagini, p. 114 (reproducing the polychrome title). "The 1870s did... produce the Requiem, and that is no small achievement... The origins of the piece began in 1868 with Verdi's suggestion for a composite Requiem in honour of Rossini, to be written by ‘the most distinguished Italian composersÂ’. This was duly completed but plans to perform the piece came to nothing; in April 1873 Verdi's contribution, the ‘Libera meÂ’ movement, was returned to him. It seems likely that about that time he decided to write an entire Requiem himself, a decision perhaps precipitated, perhaps strengthened, by the death in May of Alessandro Manzoni, to whom the work was dedicated." Roger Parker in Grove Music Online.
