        Recueil d'ornements et de sujets pour etre appliques a l'ornementation

      1875. CLAESEN, Charles. Recueil d'ornements et de sujets pour être appliqués á l'ornementation des Armes. Illustrated with a lithographic title and 40 lithographic plates, 6 being chromolithographs, including one double-page plate ("34 & 35") in full colour, and 5 plates folding. Large 4to., 352 x 268 mm, bound in recent three-quarter maroon morocco over contemporary Belgian pebble-grained cloth boards, later leather lettering piece on upper cover. Liège: chez Charles Claesen, [ca. 1856-58]. |~||~||~||~||~||~| First printing of one of the most splendid illustrated books on gun decoration, illustrated throughout with gold-printed chromolithographs, copperplates and black and white lithographs, all documenting elaborately ornamented guns from the Renaissance through the Victorian era. The highly detailed ornament incorporates images of hunting dogs worked into the designs, as well as fowl, foliage, stags, scroll vines, etc. The delicately-detailed lithographs and copperplates reproduce gun-ornament on metal for the cock and side plaques, and on wood for the stocks and barrel fore-ends. The work was issued by the Belgian lithographer and later illustrated book publisher, Charles Claesen, who was active as a lithographer at Liège beginning in the early 1850s. He later founded his own publishing firm in 1893, the Societé C. Claesen & Co., which closed in 1898. "Dominating the production of Belgian architectural books in the late nineteenth century were the titles issued by Charles Claesen of Liège, successor to D. Avanzo et Compagnie. The latter firm had by the 1840s garnered a large market for such large-format issues as the Grands prix d'architecture: Projets couronnés par l'Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts de France of 1842, a market that Claesen was further to exploit. Claesen personally kept up with and soon implemented the various improvements in the means of book (re)production as they were developed. Thus, if his typical issues of the 1860s were volumes of engraved plates (like his Spécimens de la décoration by Michel Liénard of 1866), those of the 1870s were collections of lithographs (like his Motifs de décoration extérieure et intérieure of the 1870s" (Alfred Willis, Belgian Architectural Book Publishing from the Nineteenth Century towards the Twenty-First). In Muquardt's Bibliographié de la Belgique 1857 it is recorded that already by 1857 the first two series of this publication were complete and available for purchase as single plates. He then states that an "ouvrage complet sera composé de 50 pl., et formera 4 séries annuelles qui se réunissent en 1 vol. ou se vendent séparément." Claesen never realized his plan of publishing the complete series of 50 plates; this volume containing 40 plates represents the full and final number of plates that he published on the subject. Volume rebacked, overall, a beautiful copy. PROVENANCE: M.A. Crowther with his ex-libris (possibly the early twentieth-century English author of books on English religion and social sciences); Edmond L. Lincoln with ex-libris. Thiébaud 205-206 ("Ouvrage couronné à l'Exposition des arts industriels de Bruxelles, 1856, et admis dans l'enseignement de l'Académie des beaux-arts de Liège"). Muquardt, Bibliographié de la Belgique ou catalogue général et l'imprimerie et de la librarie belges.... Livres Belges publiée in 1857, # 398.

        Four U.S. Infantry Photographs

      [Circa 1875]. Four black and white photographs, each measuring 6.75" x 4.5", mounted on stiff cardboard, measuring 6.5" x 5.5", with three holes in the left margins indicating they might once have been contained in a photo album. Two of the photos are somewhat faded at the edges, the mounts toned and with scattered spots, overall very good. The photos depict several groups of soldiers at their camp. Two photos show formal images of men posing before the camera and in full uniform. One has 34 men outside by tents standing and seated, several with pipes in hand and two mugging for the camera by posing like boxers, while the other photo is of a smaller group of six men with their rifles leaning together at the center. The other photos capture a group of soldiers holding a blanket and tossing another soldier in the air while others watch. The final images is of eight smiling men in various states of undress, in long underwear and one shirtless, lounging in a tent in a very relaxed and friendly manner with a black soldier at the center leaning next to a white soldier with casual ease.Our research suggests these photographs are of enlisted men from the 1st Regiment, U.S. Infantry taken in 1875 or shortly after, based on what appears to be uniformly worn five-button Sack Coats (first issued in 1874) and post-Civil War style forage caps (1872) and infantry insignia (1875). Despite a number of names written on a sign (seen in two of the photos), we have not been able to identify the particular company or any individual soldiers. We suspect a more careful examination of military records might yield more positive results. Still an interesting collection of original 19th Century photos including an endearing image of racial tolerance and companionship.1 .

        Gymnocrex Plumbeiventris (Grey-bellied Rail)

      London 1875 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became and expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was about to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While is Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented Birds of Asia. The Birds of New Guinea was Gould's last full-scale work, left incomplete on his death in 1881. Gould completed twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the task of finishing the project fell to Richard Bowdler Sharpe, a superbly qualified successor, who had been Gould's colleague, assistant and friend. One of Gould's most exotic works, the five magnificent volumes of the Birds of New Guinea contain an extensive series of beautiful images of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers and hawk-owls. All of the 320 images are extraordinary for their color and artistry, interesting backdrops and animated compositions. Gould and Sharpe created some of their most engaging and active scenes of bird life in the Birds of New Guinea, and the great popular reception of the work was such that it was one of their only productions that led to a sequel, Sharp's Birds of Paradise (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the Birds of New Guinea, which, like the Birds of Asia, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Gymnocrex Plumbeiventris, measures 14.75" x 21.5" and is in mint condition. The birds illustrated, commonly called Grey-bellied Rail's, are expertly hand-colored in shades of copper, brown and grey. The fine lines and detailing on this engraving is evident as the patterns and feathers on the rail's body are well defined. This Grey-bellied Rail is shown in a dynamic posture, pulling food from the ground. Two other Grey-bellied Rails are seen among the rocky background.

        Journey Across the Western Interior of Australia

      London: Samson, Low, Marston, Low & Searle, 1875. Octavo, frontispiece portrait, eight plates and a large folding map, 30 pp. publisher's advertisements dated February 1875, bookplate; an attractive copy in the original gilt-decorated green cloth. Warburton crosses from east to west. First edition of Warburton's enthralling narrative of his expedition from the Telegraph Line to the west coast, which won the race to cross the continent from east to west.Warburton beat Ernest Giles to the honour, but at a terrible cost. In the harsh Great Sandy Desert his expedition deteriorated into an endless search for water; within a few months half their camels were dead; provisions were low and much of their equipment had been lost; they could only travel by night in the intense summer heat. Warburton was blinded in one eye and so weak that he had to be carried prone on his camel. They reached the Oakover River just in time but even here they faced starvation and had to eat stewed camel hide while waiting for relief to arrive.As a result of the extreme hardship and malnutrition that he experienced, Warburton was unable to prepare his journals for publication. The scientific results were edited and arranged by eminent naturalists of the day, including Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker and John Gould, while the text of Warburton's journals was edited into a narrative by H.W. Bates of the Royal Geographical Society.

      Quarto, 20 lithographic plates (16 in sepia and four in colour) and a folding map; a fine copy in original boards. Early ethnology of West Papua. Original edition: very scarce.

In this finely-illustrated book Rosenberg extensively records his exploration in New Guinea, discussing the natural environment of each region he visits, and including many references to the people and their customs. This is considered one of Rosenberg's best publications, and is illustrated with fine lithographs including four handcoloured prints of newly-discovered birds. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Donacicola Huntsteini (Huntstein's Weaver Finch)

      London 1875 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor, from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became and expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was about to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. While is Papua New Guinea, he decided to embark on a final folio as a complement to his unprecedented Birds of Asia. The Birds of New Guinea was Gould's last full-scale work, left incomplete on his death in 1881. Gould completed twelve of the twenty-five parts, and the task of finishing the project fell to Richard Bowdler Sharpe, a superbly qualified successor, who had been Gould's colleague, assistant and friend. One of Gould's most exotic works, the five magnificent volumes of the Birds of New Guinea contain an extensive series of beautiful images of birds of paradise, bower birds, parrots, parakeets, cockatoos, kingfishers and hawk-owls. All of the 320 images are extraordinary for their color and artistry, interesting backdrops and animated compositions. Gould and Sharpe created some of their most engaging and active scenes of bird life in the Birds of New Guinea, and the great popular reception of the work was such that it was one of their only productions that led to a sequel, Sharp's Birds of Paradise (1891-98). Missing from that later production, however, was the almost overwhelming variety of species of the Birds of New Guinea, which, like the Birds of Asia, was the most comprehensive chronicle of the island's ornithology ever issued. This folio size, hand-colored lithograph, Donacicola Huntsteini, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in mint condition. These birds, commonly called Huntstein's Weaver Finches, are expertly hand-colored with exceptional detailed given to the plumage and patterns of their heads and feathers. This dynamic lithograph shows two of the birds resting, as the third begins to spread its wings.

        Panorama de Constantinople pris de la Tour de Galata

      Istanbul: Pascal Sébah,, c.1875. Landscape folio (313 × 372 mm). Original brown leather-backed morocco-grained cloth, title gilt to the front board within an elaborate gilt panel, the lower with central oval cartouche containing a crescent and star in gilt within a panel in blind. Housed in plum quarter morocco book-style drop-back box, matching linen, title gilt to spine, raised bans gilt, lozenges gilt to compartments. 10 albumen prints mounted on card panels and joined with linen tape, leporello-style to form a panorama (card panels 305 × 321 mm; photographic prints 268 × 320 mm), length of panorama when extended 3290 mm. Somewhat rubbed and soiled, gilt slightly oxidised, spine a little dry, first linen joint perished and the panorama separated from the first panel which is mounted inside the front board, other joints thinned and a touch weak, but holding, some slight discolouration and finger soiling to the margins of the mounting cards, some pale browning in the sky of the panorama, but overall the print is clean, crisp and with excellent dark brown tone, an exceptionally well-preserved example of this important and much-reprinted visual document of the city. Superb panoramic view of the city taken from the Galata Tower looking over the Bosphorus towards the Asian side, across the Golden Horn can be seen the Topkapi Palace, and the great mosques of the city, Haghia Sophia, the Blue Mosque, the Yeni Mosque, and the Süleymaniye. In 1857 Pascal Sébah opened one of the first photographic studios in Constantinople, having met with great success, in 1873 he expanded the business setting up a further establishment in Cairo, near to the renowned Shepheard's Hotel. In 1883 Pascal suffered a stroke and the business was taken over by his son Jean, who styled himself J. Pascal Sébah so as not to break the continuity of the business, but was to become a talented photographer in his own right. In 1888 Jean went into partnership with a French photographer resident in Istanbul, Polycarpe Joaillier, the firm of Sébah & Joaillier in time becoming official photographers to the Sultan. In various forms this business continued down to the middle of the twentieth century when, in 1952, its last incarnation Foto Sabah finally closed its doors.

Verlags Interimsbroschur; unbeschnitten und ungeöffnetes Exemplar.. First Edition! - - This report established the fact that fertilization consists of the union of the nuclei of a male and a female sex cell, and that only one spermatozoon is required to fertilize an egg. This latter finding had important implications for the study of heredity. Hertwig's paper marks an important conceptual advance, uniting the process of fertilization and the transfer of hereditary material with the nuclear theory of sexual reproduction. - - Wilhelm August Oskar Hertwig's (1849-1922) "prize essay (Jena, 1871) and doctoral thesis (Bonn, 1872) were devoted to traditional developmental studies, but after reading Leopold Auerbach's &quote;Organologische Studien&quote; (Breslau, 1874) he became deeply interested in the nature of the fertilization process. The views most widely held at that time were either that the spermatozoa make contact with the egg, thus stimulating its development by the transmission of subtle mechanical vibration akin to the supposed action of a ferment (the contact theory advocated by G.W. Bischoff), or that they penetrate the egg and their chemical constituents become commingled with the egg yolk. Consequently, when Auerbach found two nuclei in the fertilized egg he assumed they had originated from the mixture of the chemical constituents of sperm and egg, and not from any previous nuclei. - Auerbach's work left Hertwig curious and dissatisfied. As an anatomist conscious of the role of organized structures in the cell, he expected to discover some structural continuity between the nuclear contents of the egg before and after fertilization. He was aware of the distinctive staining reactions of the nucleus and of the hereditary role that Haeckel had assigned it. He also knew that botanists had accepted Nathanael Pringsheim's observation of the penetration of the antherozoid into the oogonium in Oedogonium. At this juncture in Hertwig's career, Haeckel was about to take Richard Hertwig on a research trip to the Mediterranean. Hertwig rashly resigned his new assistantship at Bonn to join them, and it was on that trip that he found the sea urchin (Toxopneustes lividus) which so admirably suited his research purposes. - Because of its small size, finely divided yolk, and absence of any noticeable membrane, the sea urchin was remarkably transparent. Using fresh material and material fixed in acetic or osmic acid, Hertwig followed the fate of the egg and sperm nuclei with ammoniacal carmine solution. To his delight he was able to detect the pressure of a remnant of the egg nucleus before and during the entry of the spermatozoon and the fusion of both nuclei five to ten minutes later. Although he was mistaken in describing this nuclear structure in the egg as the nucleolus, he was able to state categorically that he had observed no breaking up of that nucleus, and hence could maintain the morphological continuity between it and the cleavage nuclei of the developing embryo. More important for the understanding of heredity, however, was his observation that only one spermatozoon is required to fertilize one egg. The enter of further spermatozoa is prevented by the formation of a vitelline membrane, which spreads around the surface of the egg starting from the cone of attraction at the point of entry of the spermatozoon. - In the winter (August) of 1875 Hertwig wrote this work up for the &quote;Habilitationsschrift&quote;, which he defended the following November, when he was called upon to evaluate the statement: "The egg cell passes through no monera stage in its development".(...)In his retrospective essays, including his magnificent &quote;Dokumente zur Geschichte der Zeugungslehre&quote; (1918), Hertwig emphasized the conceptual advance made in 1875 when the process of fertilization became firmly associated in the nuclear theory of sexual reproduction. The demonstration of nuclear continuity and conjugation in his &quote;Habilitationsschrift&quote; was decisive in establishing this theory and was surely his greatest contribution to science."
