        Geschichte der Botanik vom 16. Jahrhundert bis 1860.

      München, R. Oldenbourg, 1875. 8vo. pp. xii, 612. Contemporary half cloth, gilt lettering in spine. First edition. The most important publication on the history of botany published in the 19th century. Julius Sachs (1832-1897) was the founder of modern plant physiology. "In 'Geschichte der Botanik ...' he went far beyond a dry historical description, presenting with great skill the basis of his own scientific work. This masterful presentation records all the fundamental elements upon which Sachs built his many theories' (DSB XII, 60). Library stamp on title-page.

A rare edition, depicting the German victory over France, with large chromolithographic prints. This is an oversized or heavy book that requires additional postage for international delivery outside of Canada and the US. The Franco-Prussian War or Franco-German War (19 July 1870 â€?" 10 May 1871), was a conflict between the Second French Empire and the German states of the North German Confederation led by the Kingdom of Prussia. The conflict emerged from tensions caused by German unification. Prussian chancellor Otto von Bismarck planned to provoke a French attack in order to draw the southern German statesâ€?"Baden, Württemberg, Bavaria and Hesse-Darmstadtâ€?"into an alliance with the Prussian dominated North German Confederation. On 16 July 1870, the French parliament voted to declare war and hostilities began three days later. The German coalition mobilised its troops much more quickly than the French and rapidly invaded northeastern France. The German forces were superior in numbers, had better training and leadership and made more effective use of modern technology, particularly railroads and artillery. A series of swift Prussian and German victories in eastern France, culminating at the Battle of Sedan and the Siege of Metz saw the French army decisively defeated. The war continued, after the Third Republic was declared in Paris 4 September, under the Government of National Defence and Adolphe Thiers. For the next five months the German forces fought and defeated new French armies in northern France. Following the Siege of Paris, the capital fell on 28 January 1871. The German states proclaimed their union as the German Empire under the Prussian king, Wilhelm I, uniting Germany as a nation-state. The Treaty of Frankfurt of 10 May 1871 gave Germany most of Alsace and some parts of Lorraine. Following defeat, a revolutionary uprising called the Paris Commune seized power in the capital and held it for two months, until it was bloodily suppressed by the regular French army at the end of May 1871. The unification of Germany upset the European balance of power that had existed since the Congress of Vienna in 1815 and Bismarck maintained great authority in international affairs for two decades. French determination to regain Alsace-Lorraine and fear of another Franco-German war, along with British concern over the balance of power, became factors in the causes of World War I.

        ETCHINGS ON THE LOIRE AND IN THE SOUTH OF FRANCE

      London: John Murray, 1875. Rebacked retaining original spine cloth, covers with wear and soil with corners rubbed through, plates fine. Folio (14 3/4"). Twenty full-page mounted etchings, each with a page of descriptive letterpress. Bound in original terra-cotta cloth over beveled boards with vertical spine titles in gilt, the upper cover with large gilt-ruled frames and titles, design repeated in blind on lower cover. Bookplate reading "This book belongs to E. M. Forster" and with inscription "E. M. Forster from A Colvin Jan 5th 1876, 18 Dulce Street". The novelist E. M. Forster was born in 1876, so the inscription definitely does not relate to him, but perhaps to his father, Edward Morgan Llewellyn Forster, an architect. The bookplate could be the novelists as it is quite simple and in modern type.

        JAPANESE EXPEDITION TO FORMOSA

      1875 - HOUSE, Edward H. THE JAPANESE EXPEDITION TO FORMOSA. Tokio: [No Publisher], 1875. Without the large supplementary map. Includes map of Southern Formosa facing p. 114. xiii,[1],231 pp., + errata slip bound-in at end. Octavo, side-sewn and glued into (original) printed paper wrappers with brushed Japanese-language title on spine, and housed in a modern chitsu case with paper labels on spine and upper board and bone clasps. Wrappers show some general wear and soiling. Clean text, and in very good condition overall. In 1874 Japan sent a punitive expedition to Formosa to avenge the killing of some Ryukyu islanders who had been ship- wrecked on the coast of Formosa and murdered by the inhabitants. The sovereignty of the Ryukyu Islands, which at that time belonged to China, was disputed by Japan; and when China refused to punish the Formosans, Japan claimed that it was the legal protector of the Ryukyu Islands and sent a military expedition to Formosa to avenge the murders. In a brief introductory note, dated April 1875, House says that the materials presented in this book were "chiefly collected from memoranda of personal observation of the incidents described, and of authentic narratives of the diplomatic transactions between the governments of Japan and China . Many of the earlier chapters originally appeared in the form of letters to the New York Herald, during the summer and autumn of 1874." (Cordier I:295). [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        WANTED POSTER

      Privately printed, 1875., 1875. Broadside, 9 1/4" x 12 1/4." Wanted poster produced for a General Superintendent and later President of Wells, Fargo and Co., John J. Valentine. According to Stagecoach Robberies in California: A Complete Record, 1856-1913, written by R. Michael Wilson, "At 9:00 a.m. Tuesday, July 6, 1875, the stagecoach from Fiddletown to Jackson, where it would connect with the Lathrop coach, was stopped by two road agents, one armed with a pistol and the other with an ax. They had hidden behind rocks just beyond a sharp curve in the road, which required the horses to proceed slowly, and as the coach came around they jumped out and the man armed with a pistol pointed his weapon at the driver and ordered him to halt. The driver was unarmed and had no choice but to obey. They took from the coach $7,000 in gold bullion from the last cleanup of the Phoenix Gold Mining Company at Plymouth. Once they had their plunder they ordered the driver to continue, and after he drove off, the two road agents fled. The driver went one mile to the first house he came to and had the farmer ride into Plymouth to report the robbery. A posse from Plymouth went to the scene but could find no clues to the robbers' identities nor a trail to follow because the terrain was so rocky and hard. The sheriff started for Plymouth at 9:30 a.m. the following morning, but he had no better luck. By July 22, Wells, Fargo had posted a reward of $2750 for the arrest of the two road agents, and one-fourth of any treasure recovered, but it was ever paid." Wilson offers sources: Los Angeles Herald (CA): July 22, 1875; Sacramento Daily Union (CA): July 7, 1875; Territorial Enterprise (Virginia City, NV): July 6, 1875. Poster states, "$2750 REWARD WELLS, FARGO & CO.'S EXPRESS BOX ON LATROBE & FIDDLETOWN STAGE ROUTE, WAS ROBBED TO-DAY, BY TWO MEN, ONE MILE FROM PLYMOUTH, OF $7000 IN GOLD.

        Clytoceyx Rex (Spoonbilled Kingfisher)

      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, Clytoceyx Rex, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in mint condition. The birds illustrated, commonly called Spoonbilled Kingfishers, are expertly hand-colored in deep shades of brown and orange, the foreground bird with vibrant blue feathers on its back. The fine lines and detailing define the plumage of the birds and the patterns of feathers on their bodies from head to tail.These birds are perched together on a branch and are surrounded by lush leaves and flowers.

This dynamic piece features two bird commonly called Waigiou Birds of Paradise. Seen from opposing angles, the birds are brilliantly colored in shades of orange, purple and green. The detailing of their feathers and defining characteristics is exquisite. The fine lines create shadowing effects and emphasize each feather. A third bird is seen flying in the background, among a lush rain forest.

        Drepanoris Bruijnii (Bruijn's Bird of Paradise)

      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 able 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 in 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 “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 “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, Drepanoris Bruijnii, measures 21.5" x 14.75" and is in mint condition. These birds, commonly called Bruijn's Birds of Paradise, are expertly hand-colored in shades of brown with blue accenting around their eyes. This dynamic lithograph shows the two birds perched on a branch, one with a berry in its beak. The precise lines detail and define each feather from head to tail feather and give them dimension. The patterns of their plumage are also well defined and the positioning of their bodies allows for total appreciation of these characteristics. The branch they rest on is well colored with detailed leaves, adding vibrant shades to the print.
