        Relations entre les phénomènes électriques et capillaires [Lippmann's Thesis]

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1875. SCARCE FIRST PRINTING IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Lippmann's famous "Thesis", presenting his capillary electrometer, the foundation for the electrocardiogram. The capillary electrometer "was an apparatus that used a new physical principle to measure electrical potential and is changes... The concept behind the instrument was really quite simple and elegant and had been worked out in Kirchoff's laboratory in Heidelberg by a young Parisian physicist, Gabriel Lippmann. Lippmann found that the surface tension of a liquid such as mercury, when covered with another electrolyte such as dilute sulfuric acid, was dependent in a complex way upon the potential difference across the phase boundary. Change the voltage by even a minuscule amount and one changed the surface tension, and hence the shape of the meniscus: it moved up and down. Converting this principle into an instrument was equally simple. One took a glass tube perhaps one-quarter inch across, pulled out one end into a capillary, filled it with mercury, inverted the capillary end into a bath of dilute sulfuric acid, and applied a potential across the mercury/sulfuric boundary. The tiny meniscus, no more than one-fiftieth of a millimeter across, could be viewed through a microscope and could be seen to move almost instantaneously with changes in electromotive force of as little as .0001 volt. Lippmann published preliminary accounts of his experiments on electrocapillarity in 1874 and incorporated a full theoretical treatment into a Thèse he presented to the Paris Faculté des Sciences in April 1875 and printed in July" (Coleman, The Invesitative Enterprise)."The invention of the capillary electrometer in the early 1870s by Gabriel Lippmann led to the first recording of a human electrocardiogram by Augustus D. Waller" and "for more than two decades the capillary electrometer was the best method available to physiologists for recording the electrical activity of the of the heart" (Iaizzo, Handbook of Cardiac Anatomy; Fleming, A Short History of Cardiology).Relations entre les phénomènes électriques et capillaires. Thèses présentés a la faculté des sciences de Paris pour obtenir le grade de docteur ès sciences physiques, par M. Gabriel Lippmann. Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1875. Quarto, original wrappers; custom box. pp. 1-58. Small archival tape reinforcement on rear of front cover; tiny (almost invisible) repairs to extreme corner of first few leaves, library stamp and ink call numbers on cover and title. RARE. Very Good.

        Two well-presented tourist photograph albums.

      Italy: Enrico van Lint, Emanuele Lupi, Alfred Noack, Giacomo Brogi Studio, & Carlo Naya, c.1875 - 2 volumes, quarto (338 x 272 mm & 320 x 240 mm). Both bound in contemporary full vellum, the larger with three panels of elaborate gilt tooling on spine, sides with gilt arabesque panels, front cover titled "Roma" with gilt stamp of the she-wolf suckling Romulus and Remus, red edges, gilt & brown endpapers patterned in Renaissance style; the smaller with decoratively gilt tooled spine, sides with gilt & red ruled borders enclosing gilt & red strapwork panels, red edges, white moiré endpapers. Bindings a little rubbed and soiled (covers of "Roma" marked and spine dulled), leaves slightly cockled, scattered light foxing but the photographs in excellent condition. 204 albumen print photographs (measuring 140 x 259 mm up to 210 x 305 mm), mounted on thick pale blue-grey or white card stock, linen hinges, nearly all with identifying captions in manuscript (English) or letterpress (Italian) below image. Very appealing pair of Victorian Grand Tour albums, containing over 200 large albumen print photographs of Pisa, Genoa, Florence, Assisi, Amalfi, Naples, Venice, and Milan, sculpture (largely classical but extending to Bernini and Canova) and artwork in the Vatican (with a focus on paintings and frescoes by Raphael) and other collections; the assemblage breaks down as follows: Roma contains 43 of sculpture, 60 of paintings; the smaller volume: 52 views (largely exteriors), 9 of sculpture, 38 of paintings, 2 of theatre interiors from prints (San Carlo, Naples and La Scale, Milan). The Rome volume carries the bookseller's ticket of Enrico Andersen, whose well-established business in a handsome building at 30 Via Due Macelli, south of the Spanish steps, specialised in supplying luxury bindings and stationery to a high-end clientele. The smaller album opens with some excellent images of Pisa (the leaning tower, Baptistry, Duomo) by Enrico van Lint (1808-1884), "a first-rank protagonist in the early days of the calotype in Italy" (Luminous Lint online). These are followed by a striking image captured by Emanuele Lupi of the port at Genoa (c. 1875), the harbour packed with masted ships. There are a number of other images from the studio of Alfred Noack (1833-1895), who "photographed the most important artistic cities of northern Italy, but the fulcrum of his research and great part of his energy were dedicated to the Ligurian Riviera and Genoa" (ibid.), and many images of sites in Florence and Milan. The photographs of sculpture and paintings in the Vatican collections are the work of Giacomo Brogi (1822-1881) and his son Carlo. Finally, there is a series of memorable images of Venice in the 1860s and 70s by Carlo Naya (1816-1882), one of the most prominent photographers working with the tourist market in Venice. Many such albums are found in a smaller format and with fewer photographs, so these are particularly attractive examples of a more lavish production and date from the rapidly vanishing era of the Grand Tour.

        The Communistic Societies of the United States; from Personal Visit and Observation.

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1875. Large octavo, frontispiece and 16 plates, illustrated; publisher's cloth, spine and front cover lettered in gilt. First edition of this influential and extensive study of the communitarian ideal in the United States.Charles Nordhoff (1830-1901) emigrated to the United States as a child, and went on to have a varied career as sailor, journalist and writer. His grandson Charles Bernard Nordhoff is the famous historian of the Bounty.In The Communistic Societies of the United States, Nordhoff recounts his travels to many of the socialistic societies which became popular in the nineteenth century, most famously the Shakers of Mount Lebanon, the Rappite township at 'Harmony' and the Oneida Community. As Nordhoff points out in his Introduction, he hoped that a study of these communities might provide 'useful hints toward the solution of the labor question'. Throughout, the work displays a thoroughness and lack of hysteria which supports his claim to have 'thought it best to give at first an impartial and not unfriendly account of each commune.'. A very good, fresh copy.

        Reistochten naar de Geelvinkbaai op Nieuw-Guinea in de jaren 1869 en 1870.

      The Hague: Martinus Nijhoff, 1875. Quarto, with frontispiece portrait, colour plates (13 tinted lithograph and four handcoloured), maps and charts (one folding); contemporary half morocco. A landmark work on New Guinea, particularly Geelvink Bay of West Irian. Rosenberg travelled widely through several parts of the East-Indies between 1840-1870; on his arrival in Indonesia he became assistant to Franz Junghuhn at Padang. He explored extensively in Sumatra, the Moluccas, and certain regions of Teluk Cendrawasih (Geelvink Bay) of West Irian.This is one of Rosenberg's best known publications, containing beautiful plates. He concentrates mainly on the natural environment of the regions that he describes, but also includes special sections on the people and their customs. A very good copy.

        Explorations in Australia: I. Explorations in search of Dr Leichhardt and party. II. From Perth to Adelaide, around the Great Australian Bight. III. From Champion Bay, across the desert to the Telegraph and to Adelaide.

      London: Sampson Low, 1875. Octavo, eight plates, four folding maps; apart from a cancelled library stamp a good copy in original green cloth, gilt vignette on upper board. An important account of Forrest's successful exploring career, during which he most famously became the first person to cross the continent west to east.Forrest began his first expedition as Government Surveyor in 1869, at the age of twenty-one, setting out from Perth in search of traces of Leichhardt. The expedition ascertained that rumours which referred to a party of white men being slain by local Aborigines twenty years before did not relate to Leichhardt's party but to Robert Austin's expedition. Forrest went on to the east of Lake Barlee to Mount Weld before returning to Perth.On Forrest's return another expedition in search of Leichhardt was mooted - this time to travel from the Murchison River to Carpentaria. However lack of funds prevented so extensive an expedition, and instead it was proposed that Forrest cross from Perth to Adelaide, around the Great Australian Bight, in search of farming land. By taking the coastal route, the crossing was achieved by Forrest in an extraordinary five months. This feat, which had taken Eyre over twelve months to complete, is a testament to Forrest's formidable abilities as an explorer and professional surveyor, and to that of his brother Alexander who was his second-in-command.The success of Forrest's first two expeditions spurred him on in 1874 to take on the last great challenge of Australian inland exploration: to ascertain the nature of the interior by crossing the continent from Perth to the Telegraph Line which ran between Darwin and Adelaide. Again Forrest triumphed and firmly established his reputation as one of the great Australian explorers of the western interior. Forrest later became premier of Western Australia and first Baron Forrest of Bunbury.This first edition of his collected expeditions is, 'a work of great importance which must be added to every collection of exploration literature' (Wantrup). It is illustrated by four very detailed folding maps, all drawn by Forrest. Six of the eight plates are by George French Angas, and 'constitute his last major artistic undertaking' (Wantrup). A good copy.

        Oceanic Group...

      London J. Reynolds & Sons 174 Strand nd c.1875. Hand coloured lithograph, 430 x 690mm, designed by E. Ravenstein is inscribed lower left mounted and framed. A large nineteenth century lithograph showing full length portraits of people from Oceania and America. To the left of the lithograph are depicted examples of "typical" Oceanic inhabitants - Malay, Sandwich Islands, Marquesas Islander, New Zealander, North and South Australia. Whilst to the right are Papuan, Patagonian, Araucanian, Chippeway and Cherokee. An interest in ethnography took a central place in the lives of educated Europeans as science and world history were not yet too esoteric and specialised for the average person to understand. Maritime discovery was enthusiastically followed by both the French and English nations and the savants of both countries had a keen intellectual curiosity in the ethnography of the newly-discovered countries.Published in London, this image was designed by Ernst George Ravenstein (1834-1913) a German- English geographer and cartographer. Born in Main, Germany he became a British subject and worked in the Topographical Department of the British War Office from 1855-75. He was the first person to receive the Victoria gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society for geographical research.This lithograph is number three in a series, Varieties of the Human Species and from the large scale format it was possibly produced as an educational teaching aid.

      London, 1875- 1887. FIRST EDITIONS of 22 titles bound in 31 volumes. Attractive contemporary binding by Bradstreet's of deep red half morocco, marbled boards and end papers, top edges gilt. Bookplate to all volumes. Pages edges slightly age toned. A superb set. The set comprises all the books, fiction and non fiction, published during Jefferies' lifetime, as well as 2 titles posthumously published, Field and Hedgerow (1889) and The Toilers of the Fields (1892). John) Richard Jefferies (1848-1887) is best known for his prolific and sensitive writing on natural history, rural life and agriculture in late Victorian England. However, a closer examination of his career reveals a many-sided author who was something of an enigma. To some people he is more familiar as the author of the children's classic Bevis or the strange futuristic fantasy After London (the central theme of which is unstoppable nature reclaiming its birthright after the collapse of civilisation), while he also has some reputation as a mystic worthy of serious study. Since his death his books have enjoyed intermittent spells of popularity, but today he is unknown to the greater part of the reading public. Jefferies, however, has been an inspiration to a number of more prominent writers and W.H. Hudson, Edward Thomas, Henry Williamson and John Fowles are among those who have acknowledged their debt to him. In my view his greatest achievement lies in his expression, aesthetically and spiritually, of the human encounter with the natural world - something that became almost an obsession for him in his last years (Simon Coleman).

        "Happiness" and "Dismay"

      : , 1875. : , 1875. A Superb Pair of DrawingsIn the Early Style of Kate Greenaway[GREENAWAY, Kate], (In the style of). "Happiness" and "Dismay". Two ink drawings, initialed and dated 1875.A pair of two original pen and ink drawings.Image sizes: 6 1/2 x 6 3/8 inches: 165 x 162 mm. Beautifully matted, framed and glazed separately with a cream mat and gray border. (Each frame size: 16 1/2 x 13 1/2 inches; 419 x 343 mm.).This pair of very sweet drawings that are full of emotion are most certainly in the early style of Kate Greenaway. One depicts a young girl and boy in a garden by a water pump and large urn. The boy is holding an apple an the girl is offering him a bite of a pie. The other drawing shows the same girl and boy crying as the large urn has shattered into pieces at their feet. We have been unable to identify the initials but we believe that they were done by a very accomplished mid-Victorian artist.

        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. 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.

        London, Revised and Corrected to the Present Time by E. Walford, M.A.

      London: Virtue and Company, circa, 1875. Three thick quarto volumes, engraved vignettes, full page plates, page-edges gilt; in contemporary red morocco gilt, flat spines elaborately gilt, cloth boards marked. Beautifully illustrated collection of essays on the history of London bound in ornate handsome contemporary gilt decorated red morocco. In addition to hundreds of charming engraved vignettes the set includes a large number of fine and beautifully composed steel engraved plates specially commissioned for the work.Charles Knight (1791-1873) was one of the most prolific and industrious English publishers of the nineteenth-century. The magisterial six volume London remains one of his most ambitious projects, rivalling the scale and complexity of his widely acclaimed English Cyclopaedia. Knight was the son of a printer who went on to study journalism after completing training with his father. This combination of writing finesse and publishing canniness allowed Knight to publish engaging and learned works for a popular audience in attractive editions at modest prices.London in six volumes is a comprehensive series of articles on the history of the city, incorporating a wide range of themes. A small selection of the articles include: relics at the East India House, old London booksellers, gardens of the Zoological society, surgical hospitals and lunatic asylums in the past, history of Jewish inhabitants of the city, the Royal Exchange and the South Sea House, famous Astrologers and the Royal Observatory, the Foundling hospital and very much more. Very good.

        The South America Pilot Part II. Comprising Magellan Strait, Tierra del Fuego, and West Coast of South America.

      London: printed by the Hydrographic Office and sold by J.D. Potter, 1875. Large octavo, two plates of maps; untrimmed in the original faded green linen boards, title in gilt to front board and spine. An important and very rare pilot, comprising the detailed surveys of South America undertaken by King and Fitzroy on the Adventure and Beagle. This is the seventh edition, updated, but still substantially the work of King and Fitzroy: any edition of this work is now of some rarity because of both the heavy use to which copies were subjected, as well as the standard rules regarding Hydrographic Office printing.In command of the Adventure was Phillip Parker King, the Australian-born son of the third governor Philip Gidley King, who became the British navy's leading hydrographer and was one of the first native-born Australians to reach world stature: King completed the Australian coastal exploration begun by Flinders, and then commanded the Adventure on her South American survey in company with the Beagle. The surveys which resulted in this work were supervised by Phillip Parker King whose Sailing Directions for the Coasts of Eastern and Western Patagonia, now a very rare book, was published by the Hydrographic Office in 1832.The present work borrows from the Sailing Directions, but appears to have been first issued in the present form by the Hydrographic Office in 1850 (with the title Sailing Directions for South America, Part 2). The work was revised for the fifth edition of 1860 by Thomas A. Hull RN, who chiefly added new directions rather than particularly revising the work of King and Fitzroy. Reflecting the way in which the work was intended to be used by mariners, the two pages of maps are included as an "index to Admiralty charts alluded to in this work."As a result, this is one of the rarest of any works relating to either King or the Beagle voyage. No copy appears to be recorded in any Australian collection, and the sum total of any of the editions in international collections could be counted on the fingers of less than two hands. Attractively, this copy has pencil notes confirming that it was once owned by Captain L.D. Smith of Chatham Massachusetts. Smith was the captain of the Bark Moro Castle, and he has signed the front endpaper and dated it 15 November 1883. According to the 1889 List of Merchant Vessels of the US, the bark Moro Castle was built in 1869 in Mystic Connecticut, and its home port was Boston. The board stained and a bit water-marked, but a very good copy.

        The History of Japan.

      Second edition revised. London. King. 1875. 2 volumes. Volume I: 1853 to 1864 with a Sketch of Earlier Periods. Attractive folding plan of Kioto frontispiece, folding plan The Emperor's Palace at Kioto, folding black and white map of Japan at rear. Short repaired tear in border of both plans not affecting image. Volume II: Folding map of Japan frontis somewhat carelessly folded, with a short closed tear along one fold, full page plan library stamped. xiv356pp. Both volumes bound in worn, but still sound, half goat binding. Marbled endpapers, neat 19th century Inner Temple Library bookplate front pastedowns, small rather attractive stamps on prelims and occasionally in text. Gilt library insignia at foot of spine of each volume. Text is very clean and sound. A good ex-library set. These two volumes cover Japanese history from its earliest times to 1871, but the strength of the work is the detailed account it gives of Japanese affairs and Japan's relations with the West between 1853 - 1871. The earlier history is covered briefly in 100 pages and provides the context only for the majority of the work which covers this most fascinating of times when the Edo period was giving way to the Meiji.

        Chowbokiana or Notes about the Antipodes and the Antipodeans.

      [Bombay]: 1875. Octavo, 100 pp., New York Public Library stamp on verso of title-page, preserved in solander box of half green morocco, marbled paper boards. Rare: although often quite whimsical in tone, this work is in fact an empassioned plea to protect the Maori from the worst excesses of European settlement, and includes important comments on the wars: 'So much nonsense has been written of late about the land of the Maori by interested persons... that the writer ventures to offer these notes, in the hope that they may contains scraps of information useful to those who ought not to go there... 'Thomas Cockburn-Hood (1820-1889), was one of Australia's early settlers, the first to take up the Peak Downs run, upon which the town of Rockhampton now stands. In his lengthy antipodean career he was appointed to both the New South Wales and Queensland Legislative Councils, and became a member of the Philosophy Society and a Fellow of the Geology Society of London. He spent some years in Canterbury, New Zealand where he took a deep interest in fossil remains. Cockburn-Hood died on 15 January 1889 in Edinburgh, Scotland (see Obituary in Journal of the Geological Society London, vol. 46, 1890).With notes derived from any number of visitors to New Zealand, among whom the negative remarks made by Charles Darwin on the Beagle come in for especially critical comment, this work is, as Bagnall notes, 'a lengthy tirade against New Zealand, the social customs and pretensions of its European inhabitants with strong criticism of the reporting of incidents in the Taranaki campaigns.' The work is divided into three sections, on 'The Pakeha' (non-Maori settlers), 'The Maori and Anecdotes of the War', and a brief section on 'New Zealand its Attractions and Drawbacks'.The "Chowbok" of the title was a minor character in Samuel Butler's Erewhon, a Maori chief with a taste for drink who nonetheless manages to outwit the narrator at every turn, becoming a bishop in London by the end of the book despite having never relinquished his original spiritual beliefs (see Roger Robinson, 'Samuel Butler, 1835-1902,' NZETC online).
