NCBEL III, 415. 8vo, contemporary red morocco, elaborately gilt decorated, a.e.g. An interesting association copy of the first title in Tennyson's historical trilogy (Harold and Becket were the two subsequent titles): on the front free paste-down is the book plate of Sir Henry Irving, who produced and performed in the first production of Queen Mary at his Lyceum Theatre in April 1876. On the half-title is Tennyson?s bold signature ?A. Tennyson,? below which in Ellen Terry's hand is ?From her loving / Ellen Terry,? and below that in Irving?s hand is ?Her old friend / Henry Irving.? Though it is difficult to ascertain with certainty what took place here, it is probable that this was given by Tennyson to Irving, who later gave it, together with close friend Ellen Terry, to another unidentified female friend.

        On the optical deportment of the atmosphere. Offprints

      London, 1876. 1st edition. <p>Precursor of Fleming&#39;s work on Penicillin</p><p>Tyndall, John (1820-93). The optical deportment of the atmosphere in relation to the phenomena of putrefaction and infection. Offprint from Phil. Trans. 166 (1876). [2] [27]-74pp. Text illustrations. [With] Further researches on the deportment and vital persistence of putrefactive and infective organisms from a physical point of view. Offprint from ibid. 167 (1877). [2] 149-206pp. Text illustrations. Together 2 offprints, 4to. London: Trubner & Co., 1876-77. 295 x 235 mm. Original printed wrappers, very slightly chipped. Light marginal browing, but fine. Boxed. <p><p>First Separate Editions. Garrison-Morton 1932 (first paper). Tyndall approached bacteriology by way of physics: during his researches on radiant heat, he had been greatly impressed by the difficulty of removing the particles that were floating in the atmosphere. He later began to focus his attention on these atmospheric particles, publishing these two important memoirs in the Philosophical Transactions; they were later collected, along with other relevant papers and lectures, in his Essays on the Floating-Matter of the Air (1881). The first of these memoirs described his experiments with a hermetically sealed chamber in which the atmospheric dust had been allowed to settle; sterilized infusions protected within this chamber remained uninfected for months, while similar infusions exposed to air all showed bacterial growth. </p><p>Tyndall pursued these researches further in his second memoir, demonstrating that only a small amount of atmospheric dust was required for contamination, and testing the limits of heat resistance of the infecting bacteria. As bacteria pass through a thermoresistant latent stage as well as an active one, Tyndall devised a method of discontinuous boiling ("Tyndallization") to render infusions completely sterile. Tyndall&#39;s researches, along with those of Pasteur, dealt the final blow to the doctrine of spontaneous generation.</p><p> Tyndall also performed pioneering research leading to antibiotics by observing the bactericidal effect of molds-in particular the selective bacteria-inhibiting effect of Penicillium and the resistance of Ps. pyocyanea to it. His results are discussed in the first offprint listed above. Bulloch, pp. 109-117. </p>

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1876. - In this work, Pasteur "described a new and perfected method of preparing pure yeast [and] emphasized that yeast occasionally required small quantities of oxygen in order to retain its 'youth' and its capacity to germinate in oxygen-free environments. Having now achieved a new appreciation for the importance of oxygen in brewing, and especially the advantages of aerated wort, he insisted only that air should be carefully limited and freed of foreign germs rather than entirely eliminated" (DSB). Octavo. viii, 387, [4, ads] pp. Twelve lithographic plates, woodcuts in text. Contemporary or slightly later quarter red calf over marbled boards, rubbed at extremities. A little light foxing. Inscribed on the half-title to Pasteur's nephew, J. Vichot, with "affectionate remembrances, L. Pasteur." This book has been cut down slightly for binding, and portions of several letters in the inscription are shaved. Otherwise very good. First edition of Pasteur's groundbreaking book on fermentation.

        The Theory of Color in its Relation to Art and Art-Industry.

      Boston L. Prang 1876 - Octavo. xxxiii, 274pp., + thirteen plates. American edition, revised and enlarged by the author. With an introduction by Edward C. Pickering, a professor of Physics at MIT. Illustrated throughout with many woodcuts, as well as the thirteen chromolithograph plates. The first plate depicts the spectra of sunlight and color pigments, and the second plate shows Bezold's versions of color wheels. Other plates illustrate the illusion of how colors appear to change when juxtaposed against other colors. Six of the plates have text printed in black on paper of various colors, with white tissue guards. When overlaid with the tissue, the black lettering appears to take on tinges of color. Bezold was a physicist and meteorologist working at the Royal Polytechnic School in Munich, and his approach to color theory was intended to be practical for artists and those working in applied arts. Many of his examples are drawn from the decorative arts throughout history, especially from textiles and ornamental mosaics. According to "A Color Bibliography" by Robert L. Herbert, published in the Yale University Library Gazette, "Bezold represents the generation beyond Maxwell and Helmholz, when the distinction between color-light and color-pigment was at last clearly understood in the scientific world." Bound in original light brown cloth, gilt-titled to spine. First signature slightly loose, some wear to spine ends, else fine.

        Autograph letter signed to [Jabez] Hogg, discussing microbiology

      London, 1876. <p>"I Was Able to Obtain Fermentation or Putrefaction with Well Marked Turbidity"</p><p>Bastian, Henry Charlton (1837-1915). Autograph letter signed to Jabez Hogg (1817-99). [London,] March 6, 1876. 3pp. 114 x 90 mm. Traces of mounting on blank verso of second leaf, but fine otherwise.</p><p>From Henry Bastian, a physician who made notable contributions to the emerging specialty of clinical neurology, and a pioneer writer on theories of the origin of life; to Jabez Hogg, ophthalmologist, microscopist and early adopter of the germ theory of disease. </p><p>Bastian published important papers on aphasia (see Garrison-Morton 4622, 4629) and was the first to demonstrate "Bastian&#39;s law": that complete section of the upper spinal cord abolishes reflexes and muscular tone below the level of the lesion. Bastian is best known, however, for his defense of the doctrine of spontaneous generation (abiogenesis) in the face of accepted scientific opinion. In opposition to Pasteur, Koch, Tyndall and other bacteriologists, Bastian argued that there was no fixed boundary between organic and inorganic life, stating that "since living matter must have arisen from nonliving matter at an early stage in evolution, such a process could still be taking place" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). He can thus be seen as one of the first to consider the question of the origins of life from a scientific standpoint. Some of Bastian&#39;s experimental work in support of his views on abiogenesis (contrary to his intent) ended up advancing the progress of bacteriology. It was Bastian, for example, who showed that boiling did not destroy all bacteria, a finding that led to the discovery of heat-resistant spores.</p><p>Bastian&#39;s letter to Hogg critiques the findings of John Tyndall, whose recent experiments had shown that air from which all dust and floating particles had been removed was incapable of generating bacterial life. The letter reads in part as follows:</p><p>"I have no doubt that your surmises would prove perfectly correct concerning a certain number of Tyndall&#39;s solutions. Freedom from turbidity does not by any means imply absence of organisms-but in the experiments which he has imperfectly endeavored to repeat I was able to obtain fermentation or putrefaction with well marked turbidity . . ."</p><p>Tyndall had undertaken his experiments specifically to discredit Bastian&#39;s theories of spontaneous generation.

Boone with two lines in his hand, 2 pp., 8vo, dated November 14, 1817 and July 5, 1819, being a document filed with the County of St. Charles listing a tally of debts for items purchased from Boone (his name appears as "Boon" within the document) accrued by Francis McDermed between June 1814 and March 1815, sworn to by Boone's clerk, John Lindsey, before Joseph Cotts, a lawyer. On the latter date, Boone acknowledges receipt of the payment in full from Hugh McDermed and signs the receipt; [and] Autograph Document, signed by Nathan Boone, 1 1/2 pages, written on a large scrap of paper, dated September 8, 1827, being a document filed with the St.

      St. Charles County, Missouri Territory, july 5, 1819, september 8, 1827 and october 30, 1876 - Daniel Boone (1734-1820), born near Reading, Pennsylvania, is known as a great pioneer and Indian fighter. His family left for North Carolina in 1750 and settled in Buffalo Lick the following year. Boone spent several years working for his father, a blacksmith and stock-raiser, and then in 1755 began his travels when he joined a North Carolina contingent in the Braddock campaign. Stories he heard from his companion, John Finley, filled him with desire for pioneering the Kentucky wilderness, but after a disastrous battle, he returned home and married Rebeccah Bryan, a neighbor. In 1767, Boone and a couple of men headed westward to explore. They returned home and that same year Finley happened by and Boone and Finley made new plans to head for Kentucky. They commenced their journey in 1769, set up camp at Station Camp Creek, and after many adventures returned home in 1771. From that point forward, Boone set out for the west on a regular basis, accompanying various parties and settlers on their journeys. He brought his family to settle in Kentucky in 1775, and was made a captain and then a major in the militia once the region became a county of Virginia. He battled the Indians, was captured by the Shawnee in 1778, but later escaped and continued to accompany new settlers into the area. Kentucky was divided into three counties the next year and Boone was made lieutenant-colonel of Fayette County and later chosen as a delegate to the legislature. Boone's skill as a pioneer far outweighed his ability to manage his affairs, for, although he had taken up many tracts of land, they had all been improperly entered and after a series of suits over a number of years, lost all of the land. He left Kentucky and settled in West Virginia, where he was appointed lieutenant-colonel of the county and later selected as its legislative delegate. Around 1789, he moved to Missouri to join his son, Daniel Morgan, where he was soon elected to public office. After Boone's wife died in 1813, he lived mostly at the home of his other son, Nathan. Boone is remembered as a great pioneer for having "the most qualities needed on the frontier-courage in a rare degree, great fortitude, an iron endurance, a mastery of woodcraft, and single expertness with the rifle. He was loyal in friendship, honest, truthful, and modest. He was one of the most respected and beloved of the nation's heroes." (DAB) (BOONE, DANIEL) 1 vols., Various sizes. . Each document folded several times, very short minor tears or chipping mostly at folds, overall very good

        Two Autograph Letters signed to Carl Christian Giegler, Chief of Sudan Telegraph, in Khartoum

      London, 1 march 1876, 23 november 1876 - COL. GRANT ON GORDON'S FIRST TOUR OF DUTY IN AFRICA: In the March 1876 letter, Grant notes The Times's report on Gordon's contemplation of retirement. "It is reported . that my excellent friend Colonel Gordon contemplated retiring from his present duties south of Gondokar, and if this is true, no one will regret it more than I do for he is one in a thousand - one in every respect highly qualified for bringing the natives under a new rule - I trust the report is without foundation . " In the November letter he expresses relief that Gordon is staying in Khartoum: "It delighted me to hear that Colonel Gordon was not coming home when he intended as changes in the Govt. make a great difficulty out there, besides which he is so well suited for the work, however I think that five years work on the Nile is very trying to a constitution and that a trip to Europe is absolutely necessary after five or six to recruit body & mind. Colonel Gordon can have few European comforts about him. l know he will be successful in placing the "Khedive" upon the Victoria and in getting some proper person to take his place whenever he wishes to resign and take leave to Europe." He then reports that Mr. Lucas has asked for a letter of recommendation to Gordon, but "as [Lucas] had never been with natives" and lacked knowledge of eastern countries, Grant declined to write it 8vo. Together 12 pages. With original envelopes in Grant's hand
