        EARLY JAPANESE ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPHIC ALBUM

      [Japan n.d. c.1875-80].Old brocade covered accordion folding album, 37 x 29 cm., cover corners worn, balance clean, 22 large color photos of Japan 27 x 21 cm., 5 b. w., with 3 of Batavia, 2 of Port Said, and 1 Turkish photos, clean, solid. By and large an excellent, early Japanese photographic album. Photographed by the most famous and outstanding foreign photographer of the period, Raimund Von Stillfried. With 15 large color photo examples of portraits, posed photos of ten Japanese women including one of a young woman with breast exposed, 3 of Japanese men, of the 8 smaller black and white photos, 6 of women, and a pair of Samurai-warriors, rickshaw coolies & women, palanquin & a woman. Other large color photos show shrines or temples in Nagasaki, Asakusa, gardens in Kyoto and Uyeno, Ainu, Mt. Fuji, Hakone and rural scenes. All images are sharp, with lovely, tasteful hand-coloring mostly pastels and well done. The first photo of a tattooed Japanese "Beto" is a bit damp stained in the margin and is illustrated in Fabian, on p.117 c.1800. Some very stunning portraits of Japanese women superbly composed and executed, a classic and wonderful work. Stillfried had one of the best eyes of any photographer to ever work in Japan. His compositions and candid photographs captured the true inner sense of an early and innocent Japan. This kind of graphic record was seldom match by any other photographer. Baron Raimund Von Stillfried's characteristic work is always R A R E and highly desirable, perhaps one of the best of any photographer to work in early Japan, especially in the foreign community in Yokohama, with excursions to Tokyo as well.

      - Size leather bound album: 31 x 25 cm. Size photographs 24 x 17 cm., 29 x 18,5 cm. and 19,5 x 18,5 cm. Total 95 photographs: 52 signed J. V. (James Valentine), 40 signed G. W. W.

Valentine's of Dundee produced Scottish topographical views from the 1860s, and later became internationally famous as the producers of picture postcards. About 1860, he decided to emulate the success of George Washington Wilson in Aberdeen in selling topographical view photographs. In 1866 Valentine carried out his first Royal commission and received the Royal warrant in 1867. His organisational and presentational skills were essential in the rapidly expanding and thriving concern which opened a large printing works at 152 and 154 Perth Road, Dundee. ---------------------------------- George Washington Wilson (1823-1893) was a pioneering Scottish photographer. After studying art in Edinburgh and London, Wilson returned to his native city of Aberdeen in 1849 and established a business as a portrait miniaturist catering to the wealthy families of the North East of Scotland. After some years of mediocre success, Wilson ventured into portrait photography in 1852 setting a portrait studio with John Hay in 25 Crown Street in Aberdeen. From there, aided by his well-developed technical and commercial acumen and a contract to photograph the Royal Family while documenting the building of Balmoral Castle in 1854-1855, he established himself as one of Scotland's premier photographers working for Queen Victoria and Prince Albert in 1860.

        Auftreten in München des weltberühmten Athleten Holtum, sogenannten Kanonenkönigs. Bekannt durch die Pariser, Londoner und Leipziger illustrirten Zeitungen, Herr Holtum spielt und jonglirt mit 20, 30 und 60pfündigen Kanonenkugeln, wie ein Knabe kaum mit Orangen zu spielen vermag. Zum Schlusse dieser ausserordentlichen Produktion wird Herr Holtum eine wirkliche Kanone mit einer 20 pfündigen Kugel vor den Augen des Publikums laden und auf das Commando: \"Feuer\" die Kugel mit den Händen auffangen. Zu diesem fast unglaublichen Experiment ladet Herr Holtum alle wissenschaftlichen Männer Münchens ganz ergebenst ein, die Kanone und Kugel genau zu untersuchen.

      München, 11. Juli (1875). Plakat auf rosa Papier. Mit einem Holzschnitt. Blattgr.: 86 x 58 cm. Auftritt des legendären Kraftakrobaten und \"Kanonenkönigs\" John Holtum (1845-1919), der mit der Hand eine aus einer Kanone abgefeuerte Kugel auffangen konnte. Bei der ersten Vorführung des Tricks 1872 im Londoner Holborn-Theater hatte er einen Finger seiner linken Hand eingebüßt. Der aus dem dänischen Hadersleben stammende Holtum wanderte mit 15 Jahren nach Amerika aus, wurde Goldgräber in Nevada, dann Mitglied eines Circus in San Francisco und kam schließlich 1870 zurück nach Europa. Seine außergewöhnliche Nummer machte ihn zu einem Star im europäischen Zirkus; seine körperliche Attraktivität bescherte ihm eine Unzahl weiblicher Bewunderer. Einige dieser \"Groupies\" unterzeichneten gar eine Petition, die Holtum vom Fangen der Kanonenkugel abhalten sollte, auf das sein makelloser Körper nicht Schaden davon nehmen möge. Holtum heiratete aber eine schöne Kunstreiterin und ließ sich nach dem Ende seiner Karriere in England nieder. - Holtum setzte eine hohe Prämie für jeden aus, der ihm seine Aufführung nachmachen könnte; probiert haben es 161 starke Männer, die aber allesamt versagten. 1880 wurde er dafür in Leeds gar angeklagt, da einer der Probanden, Elijah Fenton, den Versuch nicht unbeschadet überstand: \"The first to try to catch the ball was Mr Fenton, but when the cannon was fired it struck him on the head and knocked him down.

        12 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Poitiers, 1858-1875. - „Er besuchte das Priesterseminar der Diözese Chartres und war auf dem Priesterseminar St. Sulpice in Paris eingeschrieben. Am 25. Mai 1839 wurde er zum Diözesanpriester der Diözese Chartres geweiht. Danach war er als Vikar in der Kathedrale von Chartres tätig und wurde 1844 zum Generalvikar ernannt. Seine Wahl zum Bischof von Poitiers erfolgte am 29. Mai 1849, die am 28. September 1849 bestätigt wurde. Der Bischof von Chartres Claude-Hippolyte Clausel de Montals und die Mitkonsekratoren Bischof Pierre-Louis Parisis von Langres und Jean-Nicaise Gros von Versailles weihten ihn am 25. November 1849 zum Bischof. Bischof Pie war anfangs kein Befürworter des Dogmas zur Unfehlbarkeit des Papstes (vergleiche auch: Pastor Aeternus von 1870), seine Meinung änderte er nach der Teilnahme am Ersten Vatikanischen Konzil (1869-1870) und wurde ein starker Verfechter dieses Dogmas. Am 12. Mai 1879, dem ersten Konsistorium des Jahres 1879, wurde er von Papst Leo XIII. (1878-1903) zum Kardinal erhoben, am 22. September 1879 erhielt er das rote Birett, gleichzeitig wurde ihm als Kardinalpriester die Kirche Santa Maria della Vittoria in Rom übertragen. Er starb am 17. Mai 1880 und wurde in der Kathedrale von Poitiers beigesetzt" (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. - Sprache: Französisch Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Copeland Saucer, with expedition crest featuring a polar bear, marked Discovery, marked with Copeland anchor inscribed Arctic Expedition 1875 and their stamp on verso.

      - 1875. Diameter 172 mm; centre a little worn, otherwise very good , not dishwasher safe. This is a rare survival from the near-tragic expedition led by Captain George Nares on behalf of the British government in the ships HMS Alert and HMS Discovery. The expedition sailed on 29 May 1875 with the chief aim of reaching the North Pole. Previous American expeditions had led Nares to believe that the best route to the Pole was via Smith Sound but after much hardship this was found to be impracticable and the ships returned to Portsmouth in October 1876. Nares was the first explorer to take his ships all the way north through the channel between Greenland and Ellesmere Island (now named Nares Strait in his honour) to the Lincoln Sea. This saucer was produced for HMS Discovery, captained by Henry Frederick Stephenson. Built in Dundee in 1873 as the whaler Bloodhound, the ship was purchased by the Admiralty and fitted out for the expedition. The design of the ship was influential on the construction of Scott's 1901-built research vessel RRS Discovery.

        Papyros Ebers. Das hermetische Buch über die Arzneimittel der alten Ägypter in hieratischer Schrift. 2 Bde.

      Neudruck der Ausgabe Leipzig 1875. - Osnabrück, Biblio Verlag 1987, Folio, VIII, 336 pp., Taf. 1-69 VIII, 63, (1) pp., Taf.70-90, orig. Leinenband. Herausgegeben von Georg Ebers mit hieroglyphisch-lateinischem Glossar von Ludwig Stern. Als Vorlage für den Nachdruck hat freundlicherweise die Handschriftenabteilung der Bayerischen Staatsbibliothek ihr Exemplar zur Verfügung gestellt. Schon im Papyrus selber fehlen die Seiten XXVIII und XXIX, ohne daß der Text unterbrochen ist. Already in the papyrus itself the pages XXVIII and XXIX are not numbered. There is, however, no text omitted. Printed in France by Folio Imprimerie Cooperative, Saint-Julien-du-Sault."Der Papyrus Ebers ist ein medizinischer Papyrus aus dem alten Ägypten. Er gehört neben dem Papyrus Edwin Smith zu den ältesten noch erhaltenen Texten überhaupt und ist zudem einer der ältesten bekannten Texte mit medizinischen Themen, wobei er unter anderem ein großes Spektrum an Beschreibungen von Krankheiten und deren Symptomen und Diagnosen beinhaltet. Des Weiteren enthält der Papyrus Anweisungen für Behandlungen sowie für die Zubereitung von Heilmitteln, zum Beispiel gegen Verletzung, Parasiten und Zahnbeschwerden, aber auch gynäkologische Tipps, wie beispielsweise für die Empfängnisverhütung. Dazu werden Zaubersprüche zur Unterstützung des Heilerfolges angegeben. Zusätzlich wurde der heliakische Aufgang des Sirius im bürgerlichen Kalender mit 9. Epiphi (9. Ipip) im 9. Regierungsjahr des Amenophis I. vermerkt.""Traditionell wurde meist von einer Abfassung im letzten Viertel des 16. Jahrhunderts v. Chr. ausgegangen und auf die Datierung von Richard Lepsius Bezug genommen. Letzter Vertreter dieser These war Kenneth Anderson Kitchen. Beide Ägyptologen beriefen sich bei ihrer Annahme auf den vermerkten Sirius-Aufgang. Zwischenzeitliche paläografische Untersuchungen haben ergeben, dass die medizinischen Eintragungen wahrscheinlich einige Jahrzehnte älter sind, in der Regierungszeit von Pharao Ahmose niedergeschrieben wurden und mögliche Abschriften von älteren Vorlagen repräsentieren.""Der Papyrus Ebers wurde im Winter 1872/73 von Georg Ebers in Theben mit den Geldern des Königs von Sachsen (15.000 Taler) und Geld aus dem Universitäts-Reisestipendienfond (25.000 Taler) erworben, in die Bestände der Universitätsbibliothek Leipzig eingegliedert[1][2] und ein Jahr später von Ebers veröffentlicht. Das Manuskript befindet sich bis heute in der Universitätsbibliothek Leipzig.""Er wurde in hieratischer Schrift verfasst und stellt die größte Aufzeichnung über altägyptische Medizin dar. Der Papyrus Ebers ist der längste medizinische Papyrus und hat eine Gesamtlänge von 20 Metern. Die Schriftrolle bestand ursprünglich aus 108 Kolumnen, die von 1 bis 110 nummeriert sind (Nr. 28 und 29 sind ausgelassen). Während des Zweiten Weltkriegs erlitt der Papyrus erheblichen Schaden. So sind die Kolumnen 54, 56, 94 und 109 beschädigt oder liegen nur noch in Fragmenten vor. Die Kolumnen 48, 49, 55, 80-82, 93/110, 98/106, 99, 100/104, 101, 102/103 und 105 sind heute verloren. Die 108 Kolumnen sind unterteilt in 877 magische Formeln und Heilmittel. Obwohl er voller Beschwörungen zur Vertreibung krankheitsverursachender Dämonen ist, finden sich doch Beweise für empirische Behandlung und Beobachtung.""Der Papyrus enthält Kapitel über Darm-Erkrankungen und Parasiten, Augen- und Hautprobleme, Empfängnisverhütung und gynäkologische Erkrankungen, Zahnheilkunde, die operative Behandlung von Abszessen und Tumoren, das Richten von Knochen und Verbrennungen. Mit der Erwähnung der Staublunge der Steinmetze ist es mit das älteste Zeugnis der Arbeitsmedizin.""Des Weiteren enthält er eine Abhandlung über Herz und Gefäße. Obwohl die Ägypter wenig über die Existenz der Nieren wussten, und das Herz als Treffpunkt verschiedener Gefäße des Körpers - nicht nur Blut, sondern auch Tränen, Urin und sogar Sperma - betrachteten, erkannten sie nicht nur das Vorhandensein von Blutgefäßen im ganzen Körper, sondern auch die Funktion des Herzen als dessen Zentrum. Außerdem enthält er ein kurzes Kapitel über klinische Depressionen." Wikipedia"The Ebers Papyrus dates from about 1552 BCE. It measures 20.23 m. in length and 30 cm. in height, and is, along with the Edwin Smith Papyrus, one of the two most important medical papyri known. It was written in hieratic script and contains the most complete surviving record of Egyptian medicine, and dentistry, referring to diseases of the teeth and offering various toothache remedies. Like the Edwin Smith Papyrus, the Ebers Papyrus came into the possession of Edwin Smith in 1862. The source of the papyrus is unknown, but it was said to have been found between the legs of a mummy in the Assassif district of the Theban necropolis. The papyrus remained in the collection of Edwin Smith until at least 1869 when it apeared in the catalog of an antiquities dealer, described as "a large medical papyrus in the possession of Edwin Smith, an American farmer of Luxor." It was purchased by Egyptologist Georg Moritz Ebers (1837-1898) in 1873-74, who published the first edition of the text in facsimile with an introduction ( Papyros Ebers: Das hermetische Buch über die Arzeneimittel der alten Ägypter in hieratischer Schrift, herausgegeben mit Inhaltsangabe und Einleitung versehen von Georg Ebers (1875)). It was translated into German as Papyros Ebers. Das älteste Buch über Heilkunde. Aus dem Aegyptischen zum erstenmal vollständig übersetzt von Heinrich Joachim (1860-1933) (Berlin, 1890). The papyrus was translated into English by B. Ebell as The papyrus Ebers. The greatest Egyptian medical document. Copenhagen: Levin & Munksgaard, 1937." Garrison & Morton Online No. 6477.9 (1875)

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 Organologische Studien (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 Habilitationsschrift, 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 Dokumente zur Geschichte der Zeugungslehre (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 Habilitationsschrift was decisive in establishing this theory and was surely his greatest contribution to science."

It begins with the invention of wine and the "career of Bacchus", then summarises pertinent import legislation, continues with an analysis of international vines and drinking culture by country, and concludes with advice on buying, preserving, and enjoying wine. The Vine and its Fruit is one of 11 works on oenology and viticulture by Denman.

        Designs for Encaustic and Geometric Tile Pavement (Spine title)

      Stoke-on-Trent, England: The Campbell Brick and Tile Co. (and) Robert Minton Taylor Tile Works, 1875, circa. Library buckram binding. 36 color lithographed pages. All plates bear the stamp in light blue ink of "T. Aspinwall & Son, Sole Agents, 38 Murray Street, NY" at the top of the page. There are 26 plates representing works from the Campbell Brick and Tile Co. with a common logo at the top of the page (this logo includes reference to awards given to them in Dublin in 1872 and Vienna in 1873); there are two plates from this company with a variant logo; there are 8 plates representing work from Robert Minton Taylor Tile Works. It can be noted that the plates from The Campbell Brick and Tile Company list Colin Minton Campbell as the Proprietor, and Robert Minton Taylor as the Manager. The colors in these lithographed plates are extraordinary in their freshness and brightness. There is minor offsetting in spots, and the 8 Fulton plates are printed on slightly thicker stock. These plates would appear to date from 1869 to 1874. The other plates would appear to date from 1875 or after, which is when the Campbell Brick and Tile Company came into existence. Online research indicates many court cases involving Minton, Campbell and Tile manufacture at the time, and the myriad uses of the Minton name by Campbell. The plates illustrate different patterns of tile works that could be ordered (by number, which is unique to each plate illustration. While there does not appear to be duplication in these numbers, they presented in chronological order and the count is not continuous and unbroken. This is sold as a collection of extremely rare color lithographs of English tiles and tile-patterns that were available in the United States from the mid-1870s onward from these manufacturers. Only the University of Rochester appears to have anything similar to this publication, and their record states their copy to have 48 plates but there is no further description. I would not say this publication is missing plates based solely on that reference. Ex library. Plates are clean and vibrant.
