        Revista occidental. 1. anno. tomo premeiro (-segundo). lisboa, 1875-76.

      Due volumi di cm. 23, pp. 768; 736. Solida leg. coeva in mezza pelle, dorsi lisci con fregi e titoli in oro su tasselli. Qualche fioritura alle carte, a tratti piuttosto marcata, ma esemplare genuino e ben conservato, appartenuto al celebre scrittore di storia portoghese Prospero Peragallo (1823-1916), di cui appaiono la firma ai frontespizi ed alcune note manoscritte che ci segnalano, tra l'altro gli scritti riguardanti Cristoforo Colombo. Privo delle brossure originali. Rara raccolta completa dei 12 fascicoli che comprendono TUTTO IL PUBBLICATO di questa celebre rivista fondata da Oliveira Martinsin cui appaiono alcuni tra i più importanti brani letterari portoghesi del tempo. Citiamo ad esempio: O crime do Padre Amaro di Eça de Queiros considerato il primo romanzo portoghese appartenente al realismo. Molto si è scritto e detto sulla presunta completezza di quest'opera, ma la maggior parte delle fonti bibliografiche, e financo la copia digitalizzata della ""Biblioteca Nacional"", affermano che i fascicoli devono essere 11. Il presente esemplare testimonia, al contrario, che i fascicoli sono e devono essere 12 per poterne affermare la completezza. Il fantomatico dodicesimo fascicolo inizia alla pp. 641 del secondo tomo con la continuazione del testo: Culpa e castigo di Maria del Pilar Sinues de Marco.

        Résultats obtenus dans les essais d'applications industrielles de la chaleaur solaire. [In: "Comptes Rendus Hebdomadaires des Séances de L'Academie des Sciences", Tome LXXXI (No.14)].

      (Paris, Gauthier-Villars), 1875. 4to. The entire issue (vol. 81, nr. 14) of Comptes Rendus present. Unbound, and without wrappers. Very light brownspotting. Pp. 571-574. [Entire issue: pp. (545)- 604].. First printing of the paper in which Mouchot presents his seminal solar generator. Auguste Mouchot was a French mathematics teacher, who in the 1860'ies became famous as the designer (and patent-taker) of the first machine that generated electricity with solar thermal energy electricity by the exposure of the sun. Mouchot began his work with solar energy in 1860 after expressing grave concerns about his country's dependence on coal. His work on solar energy and on the development of his sun machine forms the basis for the later developments on solar energy. "The work of Adams, Ericsson, and Shuman had been directly influenced by the solar conceptions of Augustin Mouchot, a man who arrived on the scene in nineteenth century France at precisely that moment when his ideas were likely to attract the most attention. It was a time when French industrial might was at a peak and her leaders open to new ideas, none more so than her emperor. In 1867, to commemorate the explosion of technology that had accompanied the industrial and artistic carnival over which he had presided for 15 years, France's Napoleon III decided to invite the whole world to an international exposition that he would host in Paris." (Kryza, The Power of Light, p. 147). "His initial experiments involved a glass-enclosed, water-filled iron cauldron, in which sunlight passed through a glass cover, heating the water. This simple arrangement boiled water, but it also produced small quantities of steam. Mouchot added a reflector to concentrate additional radiation onto the cauldron, thus increasing the steam output. He succeeded in using his apparatus to operate a small, conventional steam engine. Impressed by Mouchot's device, Emperor Napoleon III offered financial assistance, which Mouchot used to produce refinements to the energy system. Mouchot's work help lay the foundation for our current understanding of the conversion of solar radiation into mechanical power driven by steam.The publication of his book on solar energy, "La Chaleur solaire et ses Applications industrielles" (1869), coincided with the unveiling of the largest solar steam engine he had yet built. This engine was displayed in Paris until the city fell under siege during the Franco-Prussian War in 1871, and was not found after the siege ended.In September 1872, Mouchout received financial assistance from the General Council of Indre-et-Loire to install an experimental solar generator at the Tours library. He presented a paper on the generator to the Academy of Sciences on 4 October 1875, and in December of the same year he presented to the Academy a device he claimed would, in optimal sunshine, provide a steam flow of 140 liters per minute. (The Energy Library).Mouchot is the first author to write explicitly about solar energy and how to convert solar radiation into usable energy, thus laying the foundation for what we now call "green energy"

        The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection

      London: John Murray, 1875.. 5th or later Edition. Three-quarters leather. Very Good. PUBLISHING DETAILS: Splendidly bound early sixth edition, fifteenth thousand, of Darwin's great work, published by John Murray of London in 1875. 458 pages, with fold-out diagram. Size; 19 x 13 cms (7.5" x 5"). Weight; 708g (25 ozs). (See also my listing for the companion volume of the 1877 edition of The Descent of Man). CONDITION: I would rate this as very good. It has been recently bound in three-quarters green calf, with 5 raised bands, red leather labels and 24 carat gold tooling. The binding, as you would expect, is tight and secure throughout. The text is clean and bright, with just a few light foxing spots to the early prelims and last pages of the index and to the fold out diagram and adjacent pages. There are new endpapers, which match the cover boards. A superb early copy of this most collectible of titles. THE BOOK:'can we doubt ... that individuals having any advantage, however slight, over others, would have the best chance of surviving and of procreating their kind?' In the Origin of Species, Darwin challenged many of the most deeply held beliefs of the Western world. His insistence on the immense length of the past and on the abundance of life-forms, present and extinct, dislodged man from his central position in creation and called into question the role of the Creator. He showed that new species are achieved by natural selection, and that absence of plan is an inherent part of the evolutionary process. Darwin's prodigious reading, experimentation, and observations on his travels fed into his great work, which draws on material from the Galapagos Islands to rural Staffordshire, from English back gardens to colonial encounters.

        THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND

      1875. hardcover. Verne, Jules. THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND. [Consisting of:] Part I. DROPPED FROM THE CLOUDS. [Plus:] Part II. ABANDONED. [Plus:] THE SECRET OF THE ISLAND. [Together, three volumes.] Translated from the French by W. H. G. Kingston. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Low, & Searle, 1875. 40 pp ads dated Feb 1875 in Part II; 3 pp undated ads + 40 pp undated ads (but otherwise identical to those in Vol II) in Part III. Original red/purple/magenta cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, beveled, all edges gilt.3 vols. First English Edition of all three volumes that were sold separately but which together form one of Verne's greatest tales. The translation, unfortunately, was effected by W. H. G. Kingston, whose translation changed the hero's name from Smith to Harding. Further, Kingston abridged or omitted many of the technical passages indicating the castaway's scientific development of the island. Verne's anti-imperialist sentiments expressed by the dying Captain Nemo were also reversed by Kingston so as not to offend English readers... Unfortunately, Kingston's became the standard translation, to this day inflicting his omissions and distortions on English language readers. [T&M] Sampson Low's first edition (all three volumes) came out in September 1875. Meanwhile Scribner Armstrong and Henry Shepard were battling it out in America, soon joined by pirate publishers such as Donnelly Loyd of Chicago, Household Words of Boston, Charles Warburton of Philadelphia, and George Munro of New York. However, Sampson Low's English editions are much scarcer than the first American editions. Also, the plates in the English editions are sharper than in the American editions. In any event... All three volumes have beveled board edges and all page edges gilt. The first volume is in deep red cloth, the second in violet-purple cloth, and the third (partway in between in hue) in magenta cloth. It is curious (we have noted it before) that Sampson Low designed the front cover of Part III to be not quite uniform with the other two parts: the "The Mysterious Island" panel at the top is on a field of flying birds on I and II, but on a field of horizontal lines on III; the pictorial panel on I and II is all in gilt (with slim vertical black decorative panels alongside) while on III the pictorial panel is in black and gilt, without any vertical panels; and the author's name appears on the front cover of only Part III. All three volumes are generally in very good condition. DROPPED FROM THE CLOUDS is a bit askew, the spine ends are slightly worn, there are a couple of small wrinkles on the spine, and the endpapers are cracked; ABANDONED has faded cloth on the spine (as usual with purple) and its endpapers are likewise cracked; and THE SECRET OF THE ISLAND has slight wear at the foot of the spine and a bit of soil on its rear cover. That said, all three volumes have quite bright attractive bindings (these three volumes in fine condition, if there are such volumes out there, would be in the $20,000+ range). Taves & Michaluk V013.
