        KAKI SAIBAI HOH: THE METHOD OF PROPIGATING FRUIT TREES.

      Tokyo 1876, Shizusato. Blue stitched wrs., 4 vol. set, 24+33. +39+21 double folded leaves of text, 13 double folded leaves. of color illustrations, 25 color woodcut illustrations, 15 x. 22.5 cm., very good, clean, solid copy. FIRST & ONLY EDITION. STUNNING BOOK ON HOW TO GRAFT, BUD, PROPAGATE & MARCOTTE Reviewed by Tanaka Yoshiwo, edited by Sakamoto Noriyuki. * THE ARTIST: This work is stunningly illustrated in color woodblock engravings by the famous and celebrated Katoh Chikusai [his studio name], commonly known as Bunrin [flourished 1808-77], who's real name was Shiokawa Bunrin. See Roberts below for more details. * THE USE OF LATIN PLANT NAMES The table of contents shows the Japanese names of the plants discussed, along with their Latin names, using the foreign alphabet, in a symbolic way to show this work is a "modern" Meiji [1868-1912] period example. * STUNNING GRAPHIC EXAMPLES OF PROPAGATING FRUIT TREES This is a most valuable and rare early work on the methods of propagating fruiting plants. The elucidates the reader with superb insight to the current skill of Meiji-period Japanese plant propagators, employing what we would consider to be "modern" techniques. * THE CONTENTS; The first three and one-half volumes are the text. The first volume has a very handsome color frontis piece of the various fruiting trees addressed in this work: cherry, grape, persimmon, peach, pear & plum. The last half of vol. 4 begins the fantastic, copious color illustrations on how and what methods are used to increase known better verities. * ROOTING The planting bed is illustrated for seedlings or small cuttings, with protective "curtains" to keep the heat & moisture in. A kind of "cold frame" is also shown, with raised planting beds for cuttings for rooting. Seedlings and top worked cuttings also shown planted. Roots, and branches are made into rooted propagations. * PROPAGATING & GRAFTING Marcotting is accomplished by employment of a large bamboo segment, split in half, the bottom notched out to match the branch to be propagated, then the two parts aligned, bound & filled with soil until the branch sprouts roots, then is cut off from the mother tree. Variants to this show a branch being gradually bent to enter the soil, staked down, weighted with a flat rock as the new growth sprouts roots. * A final method involves the wrapping of the Marcotte with Wara [rice straw] in a ball with soil inside. * BUDDING AND GRAFTING The next major subject is grafting & budding. A prime branch is selected for its good scions to cut and use to graft onto older root stock. Cleft graft is employed, with details showing how to prepare both the rooted and scion to be grafted. To insure success 2-3 scions are inserted into the root stock, bound with Wara [rice stalks] & tied off. * Some small branches are cut to reveal the open wood & then bound to a rooted stock in a form of primitive "graft" while others are side grafted in the usual way, then all bound with Wara and tied off. * A form of "bud" grafting is shown, wherein the scion is dropped into an area prepared by cutting a flap in the skin so that the scion is inserted, and the flap replaced, tied off while the scion grows-in to the old tree. * Other brilliant ideas employed to graft and co-join scions to root stock & trees, as well as Marcottage. Pine trees are shown being cleft grafted to grafted to the top of an older tree. * A cherry is shown being clef-grafted to an old root stock. "T" budding is also shown on varieties of what looks like either persimmon or Asian pear. Other creative grafting techniques utilizing the maximum "contact" between scion & mother tree skillfully employed. One illustration shows the bending of a branch into the ground with contact grafts on three separate root stocks to hopefully gain new grafted trees. * CREATIVE & UNIQUE TECHNIQUES While many of these techniques now still in use, one wonders just how much of our current knowledge has come from such old and brilliant Japanese techniques. This work clearly shows us that the Japanese knew how to propagate & graft using a wide variety of complex techniques. Although limited to using primitive tools this work displays their great skill and good insight to methods which yielded substantial success. * THE SET: Volumes 1-3 Japanese text, volume 4 text and color illustrations from an 8 vol. set. *** RARITY: This stunning work has eluded the most famous bibliographers and Japanese botanic bibliographies. The work is obscure and quite RARE, not found in the standard bibliographies. * CONDITION: The books are bound in indigo-black dyed paper over stiff covers, solidly stitched, each with a cover labels. The covers are oxidized which is typical of books some 140 years old. It is expected that the natural & organic colors used to dye the covers to be in this state. The cover actually show both indigo-blue and black colors, with some variance and lighter color as well. The contents are quite clean on bright paper. There are some small old mended worm holes in the upper margin of several pages in vol.1. The last 14 pages of vol.4 has a small old worm hole in the upper part of the page, which does not greatly impact the color illustrations. Otherwise the work is solid and stable, by and large a very good example of a very RARE color illustrated woodcut work. *** PER THE COLOPHON: It states: "SEI-RI-EN zo-han" meanning the original wood blocks of figures are located in SEI-RI-EN. *** REFERENCES: ROBERTS, Laurance P.: A DICTIONARY OF JAPANESE ARTISTS PAINTING, SCULPTURE,CERAMICS, PRINTS, LACQUER. See page 11, under Bunrin. He was a Shijo painter, lived in Kyoto, pupil of Okamoto Toyohiko, also learned Nanga style. Bunrin is a well collected artist in world museum collections.

        SHOGAKU KYOJU JINTAI MONDOH: CATECHISM OF ELEMENTARY HUMAN ANATOMY.

      [Osaka 1876, Sasuke Miko]. Green stitched wrappers, very. good, 13 double folded sheets, [26p.], 4 color illustrations. entirely woodblock printed, Japanese text. Matsukawa: 1820-. 1882. Original covers & title slip, 12 x 17.5 cm. R A R E. A HUMAN ANATOMY FOR THE JAPANESE Matsukawa Hanzan was a grand innovator & took it upon him- self to educate the average Japanese in agriculture, nature natural science, medicine and a host of other "foreign and Western technological & scientific subjects. He wrote many books with illustrations in an easy level of Japanese with Furigana to help read the sounds. This work was one those designed to teach the Japanese the workings of the human body, to remove superstition, and to assist in telling the true story of the various parts of the body & how they work- ed. A simple but important work, hitherto a subject of great taboo in Japan. Anatomy or human dissection was forbidden by Buddhist & governmental law. Buddhist prohibitions against the opening of the human body were very strong until the Meiji Restoration in 1868. After which there was a "Japanese Renassiance" and the opening of learning on all subjects. In this text, Hanzan shows the complete body, its bones named, anatomical parts, blood vessels, internal organs with funct- iton, descriptions on all body parts in the text. Hitherto books on this subject were not published in Japan, but eith- er acquired from Dutch traders in Nagasaki, or imported from China. Color scans can be sent by email.

        KINSE SHIRIAKU: A HISTORY OF JAPAN, FROM THE FIRST VISIT OF COMMODORE PERRY IN 1

      Yokohama 1876, Wetmore. Original stiff buff wrs., corners &. spine worn as usual for this binding, 148p., 14 x 22 cm.,2nd. edition, re-published from the "Japan Weekly Mail," notes.. OBSCURE PRIMARY RESOURCE. The authorship of this book is a bit "clouded." Citing the entry found in YOKOHAMA ARCHIVES OF HISTORY: THE PAUL C. BLUM COLLECTION A CATALOGUE OF BOOKS, volume II, p.171 entry #2754, they state the author's name as Yamaguchi Ken; however in Satow's introduction he cites Yamaguchi Uji, and the preface states Shozan Yashi, 1871. * The Rt Hon. Sir Ernest Mason Satow GCMG, [June 30, 1843 - August 26, 1929] was a British scholar-diplomat * This title KINSE SHIRIAKU is then a keen outline on the below historic events as Satow saw them. Its an excellent and primary account for many of the events, and is therefore RARE, and is also one of the first if not the first actual account in book form to cover in detail and depth these historic and chaotic events that thrust Japan in to its modern age. With the arrival of Commodore Perry in 1853, Japan was forced into a treaty of trade with the Americans. This forced Japan to be split into two major factions who opposed each other; one wanted to open to the West, the other against that and against opening Japan to be a modern nation. This work outlines this chaotic period, the people and personalities. The historic events and the eventual submission of Japan to Western "gun boat diplomacy." * Satow is better known in Japan than in Britain or the other countries in which he served. He was a key figure in East Asia and Anglo-Japanese relations, particularly in Bakumatsu [1853-1867]and Meiji Era [1868-1912] Japan, and in China after the Boxer Rebellion, 1900-06. He also served in Siam, Uruguay and Morocco, and represented Britain at the Second Hague Peace Conference in 1907. In his retirement he wrote A Guide to Diplomatic Practice, now known as 'Satow's Guide to Diplomatic Practice' -this manual is widely used today, and has been updated several times by distinguished diplomats, notably Lord Gore-Booth. * The Satow Papers were deposited at the Public Record Office after Satow's death in accordance with his will. They remain a largely unexplored and rich resource for 19th and early 20th century British relations with East Asia. * SATOW'S FASCINATING SOJOURN IN JAPAN: 1862-1883 * Ernest Satow is probably best known as the author of the fascinating A DIPLOMAT IN JAPAN [inquire we may have it in stock], which describes the years 1862-1869 when Japan was changing from rule by the Tokugawa Shogunate to the restoration of Imperial rule. Within a week of his arrival as a young student interpreter in the British Japan Consular Service, at age 19, the Namamugi Incident [Namamugi Jiken], in which a British merchant was killed on the Tokaido took place on September 14, 1862. Satow was on board one of the British ships which bombarded Kagoshima in 1863 to punish the Satsuma clan's daimyo [Shimazu Hisamitsu] for the slaying of Charles Lennox Richardson and the refusal to pay an indemnity demanded as compensation. * In 1864, Satow was with the allied force [Britain, France, the Netherlands and the United States] which attacked Shimonoseki to enforce the right of passage of foreign ships through the narrow Kanmon Strait between Honshu and Kyushu. Satow met Ito Hirobumi and Inoue Kaoru of Choshu for the first time just before the bombardment of Shimonoseki. He also had links with many other Japanese leaders, including Saigo Takamori of Satsuma, and toured the hinterland of Japan with A.B. Mitford and the cartoonist and illustrator Charles Wirgman. * Satow's Japanese language skills quickly became indispensable in the British Minister Sir Harry Parkes's negotiations with the failing Tokugawa Shogunate and the powerful Satsuma and Choshu clans, and the gathering of intelligence. He was promoted to full Interpreter and then Japanese Secretary to the British legation, and, as early as 1864, he started to write translations and newspaper articles on subjects relating to Japan. In 1869, he went home to England on leave, returning to Japan in 1870. * Satow was one of the founding members at Yokohama, in 1872, of the Asiatic Society of Japan whose purpose was to study the Japanese culture, history and language [i.e. Japanology] in detail. He lectured to the Society on several occasions in the 1870s, and the Transactions of the Asiatic Society contain several of his published papers. The Society is still thriving today. * Second stay in Japan: 1895-1900: Satow returned to Japan as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary, on July 28, 1895, and stayed in Tokyo for five years [though he was on leave in London for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee in 1897 and met her in August at Osborne House, Isle of Wight]. On April 17, 1895 the Treaty of Shimonoseki had been signed, and Satow was able to observe at first hand the steady build-up of the Japanese army and navy to avenge the humiliation by Russia, Germany and France in the Triple Intervention of April 23, 1895. He was also in a position to oversee the transition to the ending of extraterritoriality in Japan which finally ended in 1899, as agreed by the Anglo-Japanese Treaty of Commerce and Navigation signed in London on July 16, 1894. * Satow was unlucky not to be named the first British Ambassador to Japan, an honour which was bestowed on his successor Sir Claude Maxwell Macdonald in 1905. * ++ Much of the above liberally quoted from the Wikipedia. ++ * There is a good chance, that we have many of the books referred to in this citation, or by and about the people: Harry Parks, A.B. Mitford, Charles Wirgman, the Japanese of the time, and of course others by Ernest M. Satow. Please inquire for a catalogue. Also we do stock a substantial number of period Japanese photos, photograph albums, and a host of other related rare books on this period ie : Japanese woodcut books and woodcut maps &c. * BIBLIOGRAPHY: + YOKOHAMA ARCHIVES OF HISTORY: THE PAUL C.

        Camp Apache, Arizona,1876

      [Camp Apache, Arizona], 1876. Gray watercolour, highlighted with red, white, and blue watercolor, on paper. Image size: 16 1/4 x 21 inches, sheet size: 20 x 25 inches. Titled in block letters in the lower margin. Signed and dated lower mid-left image: 'G. Anderson / Aug. 5th 1876'. Excellent condition, three short marginal tears expertly repaired. Matted and glazed, in a modern decorated gilt frame. A fine historical graphic record of one of the most storied of western forts: a panoramic view of Camp Apache, a U.S. Army stronghold in the Indian reservation established on the White Mountain River in southeastern ArizonaTerritory to control the White Mountain and Cibecue Apaches. The Indian fighter General George Crook and his Apache Scouts (pacified Apaches who wore U.S.Army uniforms) operated from the base, attempting to control the marauding tendencies of the wild tribes. The fort was originally built in 1870 as Camp Ord under the supervision of Brevet Colonel John Green of the U.S. 1st Cavalry. It was renamed several times; first Camp Mogollon, then Camp Thomas, and then Camp Apache (its name when this drawing was done). It was not until 1879 that the post was finally called Fort Apache. The camp is pictured in 1876, shortly after General August Valentine Kautz had taken command of the Department of Arizona. 'G. Anderson' is not a recorded artist. Possibly he was a soldier with some training in drawing stationed at Camp Apache. An American flag, painted, red, white, and blue (the only object in the painting not painted en grisaille) flies above the parade ground. The camp is shown in fine detail, in the valley of the White Mountain River, with canyons and mesas in the near distance. More than sixty buildings are depicted, including headquarters, the commanding officer's residence, junior officers' billets, enlisted men's barracks, squad huts, privies, and work sheds. At the camp entrance in the right foreground, functioning as a decorative cartouche for the picture, stands an Indian brave in a feathered head-dress, loincloth, and leggings, leaning on a long rifle. In 1869, Green explained the strategic reasons for establishing the camp: 'I have selected a site for a military post on the White Mountain River which is the finest I ever saw. The climate is delicious, and said by the Indians to be perfectly healthy, free from all malaria. Excellently well wooded and watered. It seems as though this one corner of Arizona were almost its garden spot, the beauty of its scenery, the fertility of its soil and facilities for irrigation are not surpassed by any place that ever came under my observation. Building material of fine pine timber is available within eight miles of this site. There is also plenty of limestone within a reasonable distance. This post would be of the greatest advantage for the following reasons: It would compel the White Mountain Indians to live on their reservation or be driven from their beautiful country which they almost worship. It would stop their traffic in corn with the hostile tribes, they could not plant an acre of ground without our permission as we know every spot of it. It would make a good scouting post, being adjacent to hostile bands on either side. Also a good supply depot for Scouting expeditions from other posts, and in fact, I believe, would do more to end the Apache War than anything else' Provenance: Kennedy Galleries (labels); Collection of Edward Eberstadt & Sons.

A fine example of this pocket map, with a fully-coloured inset of a copy of Thomas Kitchin's map of 'New York Island' (originally published in the London Magazine in 1778) and interesting lists of Police Stations and sub-Post Offices, a street directory, and a key to rail road routes The title notes that the map also includes details '... showing new arrangement Docks, piers and water frontage also soundings and former high water line Elevated and horse car railroad routes, traced by characters, public buildings, churches, &c. Street directory and numbers.' The detail on the map is impressive, with numerous businesses, hotels, banks, theatres, etc. identified, as well as the route of the elevated railway along Greenwich Street -- the first elevated railroad in Manhattan. In the same year, Dripps also issued a two-sheet map which extended the area covered north to 135th street but was otherwise similar (the same inset Kitchin map for instance). Cf. "Checklist of Maps and Atlases relating to the city of New York in the New York Public Library" in the Bulletin of the New York Public Library, volume V (New York: 1901), p.71 ("Map ... south of 135th Street'); not in Rumsey.

        The Holy Bible: Containing the Old and New Testaments; translated literally from the original tongues.

      Hartford: American Publishing Co. 8vo (25.5 cm, 10"). [2], 892, 276 pp.. 1876 First and only edition of this interestingly nonconformist translation, done by a vocal suffragist known for protesting the taxation of unenfranchised women. Julia Evelina Smith (1792–1886), one of the five celebrated, talented siblings sometimes referred to as the "Marvelous Smith Sisters of Connecticut," became a member of the Sandemanian sect after much independent religious study. She chose to have her private labor of love published to serve as a public demonstration of the intellectual capabilities of women, rebuking one dubious banker with the comment that she "thought it just as well to spend money to print this Bible as to put it into a thousand-dollar shawl" (New York Times, 9 March 1886). Smith endeavored to provide an extremely literal, word-for-word rendition to enhance her and her sisters' understanding of the text. Regarding the rather tangled results, she notes in her preface that "readers of this book may think it strange that I have made such use of the tenses . . . It seems to me that the original Hebrew had no regard to time, and that the Bible speaks for all ages." Priding herself as a student of ancient languages particularly on her Hebrew, this translator closely followed the Masoretic text for the O.T. and => consistently used "Jehovah" for the Tetragrammaton. Publisher's pebbled brown cloth, title and translator's name simply gilt-stamped within blind-stamped panel; recently rebacked and original spine reapplied (spine slightly rumpled), one corner restored, other corners mildly rubbed. Hinges (inside) reinforced. Front pastedown with affixed newspaper clipping on the Smith sisters. One page with short tear from lower edge, not extending into text; pages clean. => A nice copy of a very desirable Bible.

        JAMES YOUNGER.

      Taken in September, 1876 in Madelia, Mankato, or Northfield, Minnesota. - This, the first photograph of Jim Younger after his capture, along with his brothers Cole and Bob, outside of Madelia, Minnesota, after their infamous robbery of the First National Bank in Northfield, Minnesota. See the image of Jim Younger shown between pages 40 & 41 of the classic account of the robbery, Robber and Hero, The Story of The Raid on The First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota by the James-Younger Band of Robbers, in 1876 by George Huntington. An original carte-de-visite image, trimmed by a previous owner to 2" wide x 2.5" high, then protected in a rather ornate 19th century case, typically used with daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, or tintypes. Case in very good condition, with original cloth, hinge intact and original clasp present. Image has a very small card 1.25"W x .5"H, describing image, affixed to the image under Jim's chin, across his upper chest, by a previous owner, many years ago. Otherwise, a clean, very good image. James Younger was born in Lee's Summit or Harrisonville, Missouri on January 15, 1848. Jim rode, with Cole and the James Brothers, with Quantrill's Guerillas. Jim was captured near Smiley, Kentucky and imprisoned until the end of the war. After the war, Jim joined Cole and the James Brothers in several bank robberies. In addition, Jim and brother John confronted 2 Pinkerton men and a Deputy Sheriff in Monegaw Springs, Missouri on March 16, 1874. The resultant shoot-out ended with John Younger and 2 of the 3 lawmen dead. Jim's demise began with the gang's decision to go north and rob The First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota. Eight or nine men, including Jim, Cole, and Bob Younger, and Frank and Jesse James attempted the bank robbery. The failed attempt ended with the bank teller wounded, the bookkeeper dead, and a citizen dead in the street, along with 2 robbers dead, and several robbers riding hard to escape. Cole and Bob Younger were wounded. Jim Younger and Charlie Pitts stayed with Cole and Bob. Frank and Jesse James split-up from the others and successfully escaped from the myriad of pursuers. Outside of Madelia, Minnesota, Pitts and the Youngers were surrounded by a group of local citizens and lawmen. As the posse closed-in, a gunfight erupted resulting [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Recueil de mémoires, rapports et documents relatifs à l'observation du passage de Vénus sur le Soleil (Institut de France. Académie des sciences)

      1876 - 3 tomes en 8 volumes in-4 Paris, Firmin-Didot et Cie puis Gauthier-Villars, 1876-1890, , 3 tomes en 8 volumes in-4 (atlas 68 planches et annexe compris), demi-chagrin brun de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs, armes anciennement masquées en tête des dos, Édition originale de la totalité des publications de l'Académie des sciences autour de l'expédition astronomique française chargée d'étudier le passage de Vénus devant le soleil en 1874 : cette conjonction, qui a lieu deux fois tous les cent treize ans environ à huit ans d’intervalle, fut l'occasion de mettre sur pied un projet d'enregistrement photographique mené, entre autres, par le célèbre astronome Jules Janssen (1824-1907), qui embarqua officieusement, à bord de la mission japonaise dont il était chargé, un dispositif ingénieux de son invention : le très célèbre revolver photographique. L'expédition fit des observations à Nagasaki, Pékin, Saïgon, Nouméa en Nouvelle-Calédonie, l'île Saint-Paul dans l'océan indien et l'île Campbell à l'extrême sud des océans ; l'objectif astronomique put s'enrichir de multiples investigations dans les champs hydrographique, météorologique, géologique et zoologique. Ensemble d'une grande rareté, qui se compose comme suit: Le tome I (2 parties en 2 volumes) contient les procès-verbaux et les nombreux mémoires lus devant la Commission de 1872 à 1874 ; illustré de 3 grandes cartes dépliantes (passages de Vénus sur le soleil en 1874 et 1882) et de 4 planches gravées, dont l'une figure la lunette astronomique et un autre l'appareil photographique utilisé par Ad. Martin de Wolf. Le tome II (2 parties en 2 volumes) relate les missions de Pékin, de Saint-Paul, du Japon, de Saïgon et de Nouméa ; illustré de 26 + 35 planches, soit 10 planches de clichés photographiques originaux, dont l'une comprend des clichés du Soleil obtenus avec "l'appareil de le Commission du passage de Vénus", et plusieurs cartes et vues en lithographie, parmi lesquelles des représentations de l'Observatoire de Pékin. Les deux premières parties du tome III (2 tomes et 1 atlas) rapportent la mission de l'île Campbell illustrée de 6 planches + d'un atlas de 68 planches en lithographie d'études géologiques et zoologiques (55 planches de zoologie sur fond crème et 13 planches de géologie dont 10 d'observations microscopiques de roches, en couleurs et sous serpentes légendées). Enfin, la troisième partie du tome III (1 volume) contient tous les documents relatifs aux épreuves photographiques. L'Annexe paru en 1890 (relié à la fin de la 3e partie du 3e tome) fait le bilan des résultats obtenus (calcul des parallaxes, trajectoire de Vénus, etc.) Du point de vue de l'enregistrement photographique, l'expédition n'est pas une véritable réussite : en effet, comme le craignait Janssen, les appareils officiels embarqués pour les différentes missions ne sont pas similaires et ne permettent pas d'obtenir des photographies comparables. Face à cette appréhension, Janssen embarque son révolver photographique : "Although Janssen disagreed with the official prescriptions of the commission with respect to photography, "a spirit of discipline" compelled him to follow its prescribed methods during the expedition he was charged to lead to Japan. Nevertheless, in addition to the officially sanctioned instruments, Janssen brought along some unauthorized ones, including his controversial 'revolver'." L'appareil présente une innovation de taille : il ouvre la possibilité d'enregistrer un corps en mouvement. Janssen parvient à penser théoriquement la photographie comme un enregistreur de temps ; "J'ai eu la pensée de tourner cette difficulté au moyen d'un appareil qui permît de prendre, au moment où le contact va se produire, une série de photographies, à des intervalles de temps très courts et réguliers, de manière que l'image photographique de ce contact fût nécessairement comprise dans la série et donnât en même temps l'instant précis du phénomène" (Tome I, seconde partie, p. 296). L'invention préfigure le fusil [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Hi, I recently purchases a rebind in fabulous condition, inside the binding were 1876 through to 1878 but it was in such good condition I decided to split them out and had facsimile covers added to them hence, and to keep them together ... This lot is a set of three Original Wisdens 1876 , 1877 and 1878 , Paperbacks with facsimile spines and covers in very good condition. The books are in very good condition, the pages are very clean and pretty much unmarked. There is a touch of foxing to the 1877 but it is only slight and to the odd page, the other two have minimal foxing. Although it used to be rebound there is not much trimming with nice margins. A fabulous set of 3 early Wisdens at a great price.

        Manual of Cinchona Cultivation in India

      Calcutta: Office of the Superintendant of Government Printing, 1876. First. Plate. [ii], 80, 2, [2]pp. 1 vols. Folio. Original printed boards, slightly soiled, corners rubbed, preliminaries spotted. First. Plate. [ii], 80, 2, [2]pp. 1 vols. Folio. King's important work on the manufacture of quinine has become increasingly scarce. Quinine alkaloids and bark had become the standard treatment for malaria as early as 1825. However, methods of cultivation took were ruinous to the plants themselves and within 30 years demand for the bark (which only increased) was unable to be met. Forced to look abroad, cinchona plants - native to South America - were evenutally successfully cultivated in Travancore and Sikkim. As superindentant of the Royal Botanical Garden at Calcutta George King played a pivotal role in this and had "urged his superiors that cinchonas benefits should be extended to reach all the population... By 1876 he organized the production of cheap febrifuge in Sikkim, out of crude extracts of cinchona, and its distribution through the Royal Mail's post offices in India in 5-pice packets (about one English farthing)" (Drayton). In 1887, he inaugurated "an economic method of separating quinine, and established in 1893 a self-supporting method of distributing the drug at a low price" (ODNB).

Kiepert. xvi, 610 pp. index, illus. 16mo. 6.25 x 4.5 inches. Red cloth over flexible boards with gilt titles, marbled text edges, red ribbon placeholder. Cloth faded, gilt lettering faded but clear, tear to lower spine, light wear and mild indentations along board edges, hinges cracked, interior maps and text pages clean and fairly bright, closed edge tears to a couple of maps, no foxing, only mild fading to marbled text edges. The year 1876 appears on title page, however the front pastedown listing of Baedeker's Guide Books is dated August 1889, so this copy is either a later printing of the first English edition ( the second edition was not published until 1894.) or, as Baedeker was known to bind their books as they were issued for sale, it is likely the 1876 printing bound at a later date and having the updated pastedown. The book is complete - all maps, views, plans and text pages present. Many finely drawn illustrations including the "place of wailing of the Jews" now the Wailing Wall, Damascus, Via Dolorosa, etc. Duotone Jerusalem panorama fold-out is approximately 22 x 6 inches. Most maps are colored in green or orange and blue and include the approximately 16 x 12 inch frontispiece fold-out map showing the routes to the Levant. Comprehensive densely detailed historical reference with sections on travel modes and routes, customs, vocaabulary, hotels, restaurants, mosques, dwelling-houses, baths, bazaars, geography, climate, population, and the specific environs of the many Palestinian and Syrian towns and cities as they were in the mid-19th century. A "Plan of Tour" lays out a one-month journey from Yafa ("hire horses immediately") to Jerusalem, to Dead Sea, to Jericho, to Ford of Jordan, to Bethlehem and back to Yafa, the on to Beirut, Damascus, Smyrna, and Tropoli.

      1876 1183 - Paris, Firmin-Didot et Cie puis Gauthier-Villars, 1876-1890, , 3 tomes en 8 volumes in-4 (atlas 68 planches et annexe compris), demi-chagrin brun de l'époque, dos à 5 nerfs, armes anciennement masquées en tête des dos, Édition originale de la totalité des publications de l'Académie des sciences autour de l'expédition astronomique française chargée d'étudier le passage de Vénus devant le soleil en 1874 : cette conjonction, qui a lieu deux fois tous les cent treize ans environ à huit ans d’intervalle, fut l'occasion de mettre sur pied un projet d'enregistrement photographique mené, entre autres, par le célèbre astronome Jules Janssen (1824-1907), qui embarqua officieusement, à bord de la mission japonaise dont il était chargé, un dispositif ingénieux de son invention : le très célèbre revolver photographique. L'expédition fit des observations à Nagasaki, Pékin, Saïgon, Nouméa en Nouvelle-Calédonie, l'île Saint-Paul dans l'océan indien et l'île Campbell à l'extrême sud des océans ; l'objectif astronomique put s'enrichir de multiples investigations dans les champs hydrographique, météorologique, géologique et zoologique. Ensemble d'une grande rareté, qui se compose comme suit: Le tome I (2 parties en 2 volumes) contient les procès-verbaux et les nombreux mémoires lus devant la Commission de 1872 à 1874 ; illustré de 3 grandes cartes dépliantes (passages de Vénus sur le soleil en 1874 et 1882) et de 4 planches gravées, dont l'une figure la lunette astronomique et un autre l'appareil photographique utilisé par Ad. Martin de Wolf. Le tome II (2 parties en 2 volumes) relate les missions de Pékin, de Saint-Paul, du Japon, de Saïgon et de Nouméa ; illustré de 26 + 35 planches, soit 10 planches de clichés photographiques originaux, dont l'une comprend des clichés du Soleil obtenus avec "l'appareil de le Commission du passage de Vénus", et plusieurs cartes et vues en lithographie, parmi lesquelles des représentations de l'Observatoire de Pékin. Les deux premières parties du tome III (2 tomes et 1 atlas) rapportent la mission de l'île Campbell illustrée de 6 planches + d'un atlas de 68 planches en lithographie d'études géologiques et zoologiques (55 planches de zoologie sur fond crème et 13 planches de géologie dont 10 d'observations microscopiques de roches, en couleurs et sous serpentes légendées). Enfin, la troisième partie du tome III (1 volume) contient tous les documents relatifs aux épreuves photographiques. L'Annexe paru en 1890 (relié à la fin de la 3e partie du 3e tome) fait le bilan des résultats obtenus (calcul des parallaxes, trajectoire de Vénus, etc.) Du point de vue de l'enregistrement photographique, l'expédition n'est pas une véritable réussite : en effet, comme le craignait Janssen, les appareils officiels embarqués pour les différentes missions ne sont pas similaires et ne permettent pas d'obtenir des photographies comparables. Face à cette appréhension, Janssen embarque son révolver photographique : "Although Janssen disagreed with the official prescriptions of the commission with respect to photography, "a spirit of discipline" compelled him to follow its prescribed methods during the expedition he was charged to lead to Japan. Nevertheless, in addition to the officially sanctioned instruments, Janssen brought along some unauthorized ones, including his controversial 'revolver'." L'appareil présente une innovation de taille : il ouvre la possibilité d'enregistrer un corps en mouvement. Janssen parvient à penser théoriquement la photographie comme un enregistreur de temps ; "J'ai eu la pensée de tourner cette difficulté au moyen d'un appareil qui permît de prendre, au moment où le contact va se produire, une série de photographies, à des intervalles de temps très courts et réguliers, de manière que l'image photographique de ce contact fût nécessairement comprise dans la série et donnât en même temps l'instant précis du phénomène" (Tome I, seconde partie, p. 296). L'invention préfigure le fusil photographique [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Leaves of Grass

      Camden, NJ: s.n., 1876 Author's edition. Signed by Whitman on the title page. Publisher's light tan leather and green marbled boards, tan title label lettered in gilt, decorative lattice pattern to the spine in blind, ruled in blind, yellow coated endpapers. A bright and unsophisticated copy, with some light rubbing to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, a few small chips to the spine head, some light soiling to the leather, otherwise clean boards, a hint of residue to the endpapers, some light spotting to the endpapers, minor scratch to the top edge, otherwise fresh and clean pages, sturdy spine. Overall, an about near fine and pleasing copy without any repairs or restoration. Scarce in such fine condition. BAL 21412. First published in 1855, Leaves of Grass is a collection of poetry that Walt Whitman continued to edit, revise, and republish over the course of his life. In its first iteration, the collection contained only twelve verses, while later editions included several hundred. This author's edition contains 195 poems, including "Salut au Monde," "I Sing the Body Electric," "Crossing Brooklyn Ferry," "One's-Self I Sing," "Unfolded Out of the Folds," and "Bathed in War's Perfume," among others. Inspired by his friend Ralph Waldo Emerson and the Transcendentalist movement, Whitman's poetry lauds the human body, the material world, and the American spirit. Notably, although criticized for its exultation of sensual pleasure and overt discussion of sexuality, Leaves of Grass was highly praised by Emerson and remains widely considered one of the cornerstones of 19th century American poetry.. Signed by Author. Hardcover. Near Fine.

        4 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Paris, Düsseldorf, Wien u. München, 1876 bzw. o. J. Zus. 10 S., 8° bzw. Gr.-8°. Der Priester Bernard Petitjean wurde nach mehreren Jahren der Missionstätigkeit in Japan zum ersten Bischof von Nagasaki geweiht. Er war als apostolischer Vikar zudem zuerst für ganz Japan, später für dessen südlichen Teil zuständig. Er besorgte auch ein „Lexicon latino-japonicum“, welches auf die Ausgaben des Ambrosius Calepinus zurückgeht und 1870 in der Römischen Jesuiten-Druckerei erschien. - Da sich nach dem neuen Handelsabkommen von 1859 vermehrt Ausländer in Nagasaki ansiedelten, wurde unter seiner Aufsicht 1864 die katholische Kirche Oura errichtet, die zuerst als Denkmal für die 26 Märtyrer von Nagasaki gedacht war (26 im Jahre 1597 hingerichtete Missionare). Das in gotischem Stil errichtete Gotteshaus ist eine der ältesten Kirchen Japans und wird als Nationalschatz eingestuft. Und hier begegnete Petitjean auch jenen 15 japanischen Christen, die bis dahin ihren Glauben im Untergrund praktizieren mussten (zwischen 1614 und 1873 war das Christentum in Japan verboten und härtesten Verfolgungen und Repressionen ausgesetzt). Dieses Ereignis ist als Wiederbelebung des Christentums in Japan bekannt. - 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. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Mislin, Petitjean, Japan, Nagasaki, Mission, Missionare, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

        JAMES YOUNGER.

      Taken in September, 1876 in Madelia, Mankato, or Northfield, Minnesota., 1876. This, the first photograph of Jim Younger after his capture, along with his brothers Cole and Bob, outside of Madelia, Minnesota, after their infamous robbery of the First National Bank in Northfield, Minnesota. See the image of Jim Younger shown between pages 40 & 41 of the classic account of the robbery, Robber and Hero, The Story of The Raid on The First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota by the James-Younger Band of Robbers, in 1876 by George Huntington. An original carte-de-visite image, trimmed by a previous owner to 2" wide x 2.5" high, then protected in a rather ornate 19th century case, typically used with daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, or tintypes. Case in very good condition, with original cloth, hinge intact and original clasp present. Image has a very small card 1.25"W x .5"H, describing image, affixed to the image under Jim's chin, across his upper chest, by a previous owner, many years ago. Otherwise, a clean, very good image. James Younger was born in Lee's Summit or Harrisonville, Missouri on January 15, 1848. Jim rode, with Cole and the James Brothers, with Quantrill's Guerillas. Jim was captured near Smiley, Kentucky and imprisoned until the end of the war. After the war, Jim joined Cole and the James Brothers in several bank robberies. In addition, Jim and brother John confronted 2 Pinkerton men and a Deputy Sheriff in Monegaw Springs, Missouri on March 16, 1874. The resultant shoot-out ended with John Younger and 2 of the 3 lawmen dead. Jim's demise began with the gang's decision to go north and rob The First National Bank of Northfield, Minnesota. Eight or nine men, including Jim, Cole, and Bob Younger, and Frank and Jesse James attempted the bank robbery. The failed attempt ended with the bank teller wounded, the bookkeeper dead, and a citizen dead in the street, along with 2 robbers dead, and several robbers riding hard to escape. Cole and Bob Younger were wounded. Jim Younger and Charlie Pitts stayed with Cole and Bob. Frank and Jesse James split-up from the others and successfully escaped from the myriad of pursuers. Outside of Madelia, Minnesota, Pitts and the Youngers were surrounded by a group of local citizens and lawmen. As the posse closed-in, a gunfight erupted resulting
