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

      Paris, Firmin-Didot et Cie puis Gauthier-Villars, 1876. 1876-1890, 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 d'Etienne-Jules Marey et donc le cinématographe des frères Lumière... Pourtant, le révolver photographique ne compte pas parmi les appareils retenus par les responsables de la mission. En conséquence, non seulement Janssen ne put publier les résultats obtenus dans les compte-rendus de l'Académie des sciences, mais il eut, de surcroît, à faire face à une commission chargée d'examiner ses comptes de dépense en 1876.

        Notes of a Voyage from New South Wales to the North Coast of Australia.

      Glasgow: privately printed, n.d. but, 1876. Octavo, photographic frontispiece, eight lithograph plates and four folding lithograph maps and another map in the text;in original green cloth, bookplate of Rodney Davidson. A very scarce book, the only public account of an important expedition to Arnhem Land in what is now the Northern Territory. With a photographic portrait frontispiece of Napier himself.In 1867 Francis Napier joined the South Australian Government expedition under Captain Francis Cadell to the north coast of the state (now the Northern Territory) searching for suitable sites for settlement. Cadell had a long and swashbuckling career in exploration and trading: he had earlier won the South Australian prize for successfully navigating the Murray in a steam-powered vessel, had been involved in the Maori Wars, and in the 1870s was a whaler and trader in Fiji and neighbouring islands. 'Early in 1867 he was appointed by the South Australian government to lead an expedition to the Northern Territory to choose a site for the capital and an area for agricultural settlement. He examined the Liverpool River, went up the Roper River in a small steamer and visited Port Darwin, Anson Bay and the Victoria River. He spent most of the year in thorough investigation, but the instructions on which he acted were misdirected.' (ADB) His own report, published in the South Australian Parliamentary Papers for 1867, was openly criticised at the time.As a result, Napier's "Notes" were the only public account of the expedition and are an important document of the early contact and charting of the region. It was compiled from Napier's journal by his family and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875. The plates, drawn with lithographic crayon, were done by one of Napier's brother, and are signed "JMN" Headband a little frayed, very good overall.

Prächtige zeitgenössische rote Halblederbände mit marmoriertem Deckelbezug, vergoldetem Rücken und marmorierten Vorsätzen. (Originalbroschuren eingebunden). (Handbuch der römischen Alterthümer, von Joachim Marquardt und Theodor Mommsen, 1-3). Ausgabe in einem prächtigen und repräsentativen Zustand! - Mommsen (1817-1903) studierte die Rechtwissenschaften in Kiel. Nach seiner Promotion im Jahre 1843 widmete er sich - ausgehend von seinen Studien zum römischen Recht - überwiegend den Altertumswissenschaften, die erst Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts langsam als eigene Disziplin entstanden. Seine "Römische Geschichte" erschien bereits 1854-1856 in drei Bänden, noch vor Mommsens Berufung auf eine Forschungsprofessur an die Preußische Akademie der Wissenschaften in Berlin im Jahre 1858. Im Jahre 1861 wurde Mommsen als Professor für römische Altertumskunde an die Berliner Universität berufen. Er verfasste unzählige kleinere Studien und Abhandlungen vor allem zur Geschichte, auch Rechtsgeschichte Roms von der Frühzeit bis in die ausgehende Spätantike. Als umfassende Buchveröffentlichungen sind, neben der "Römischen Geschichte", vor allem das für die althistorische Rechtsforschung überaus bedeutende "Römische Staatsrecht" und das "Römische Strafrecht" zu nennen. Daneben war Mommsen Initiator, Sammler und Herausgeber überaus bedeutender Quelleneditionen. Er "kam nicht von der philologischen Kritik erzählender Quellen, sondern von Jura, Numismatik und Epigraphik, also von den Realien her und verstand es in fruchtbarster Weise, Rechtswiss. und Gesch. miteinander zu verbinden" (Biograph. Wörterbuch zur deutschen Geschichte II, 1925). - Die einzelnen Bände sind Gustav Freytag, Adalbert Delbrück und Eduard Zeller zugeeignet. (Originalbroschuren eingebunden). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Notes of a Voyage from New South Wales to the North Coast of Australia.

      Glasgow: privately printed, n.d. but, 1876. Octavo, photographic frontispiece, eight lithograph plates and four folding lithograph maps and another map in the text; fine bright green original cloth, gilt. A presentation copy from the editor, James R. Napier, to A.G. MacDonald (dated 7 August 1876). Francis Napier joined the South Australian Government expedition under Captain Cadell. They were searching for suitable sites for settlement on the north coast of the state (now the Northern Territory).The expedition departed from Newcastle, New South Wales calling at Brisbane and travelling on to Cape York Peninsula. From Cape York it crossed the Gulf of Carpentaria to the Liverpool River, surveying that river and exploring the coast for about one hundred miles east and west of it. The expedition then returned to Burke Town on the Albert River, at the head of the Gulf of Carpentaria, and passing through Cadell Strait, and along the west coast of the Gulf, remaining some time at Maria Island... It discovered the entrance to the Roper River, from the Roper it returned to the Liverpool river, thence sailing westwards to Mount Norris Bay, Adam's Bay, and Victoria River, in search of fuel, food and water.The Notes outline the discoveries of the voyage including the entrance to the Roper River. These notes - which provide the only public account of the expedition - were compiled from Napier's journal by his family and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875.A beautiful copy of a very rare book.

        Two Rivulets Including Democratic Vistas, Centennial Songs, and Passage to India [Centennial Edition, Signed]

      First Edition Camden, New Jersey Author's Edition 1876 First Issue, one of only 100 copies [BAL 21411], sometimes called the Centennial Edition, after the label at foot of the spine. 8vo: 32,[2],84,[2] 18,[2],x,[4],14,[4],68,[2],120pp, with albumen print frontispiece portrait of the poet autographed by Whitman tipped-in with printed two-line caption (in later states, the caption was extended to a third line) and inserted final leaf advertising Whitman's books. Original tan leather spine and corners (Meyerson's binding B, no known priority), spine compartments heavily tooled in gilt, three black and one red leather lettering pieces gilt, orange S cloth sides, all edges gilt, torquoise-coated endpapers embossed with all-over leaf pattern, cobalt-blue ribbon marker (and dried, pressed flower) laid in. First line of second paragraph on p. 60 changed in Whitman's hand (as in most first-issue copies) to read: 'Long, long ere the Second Centennial . . . ' A superior copy, virtually spotless, in a strong, fresh binding.BAL 21411. Meyerson A9.I.a. Wells and Goldsmith, pp. 21-22. Fine "In a continuing effort to cash in on the nation's centennial celebration, Whitman decided in 1875 'to bring out a volume . . . partly as my contribution to our National Centennial.' The book would be called Two Rivulets; as Whitman explained the title, 'two flowing chains of prose and verse, emanating the real and ideal.' Whitman's continuing obsession with dualities now carries over into the tensions between prose (the language of the 'real') and poetry (the language of the 'ideal'). . . . Two Rivulets contains Democratic Vistas, Centennial Songs, As a Strong Bird on Pinions Free, Memoranda During the War and Passage to India, each with its own title page and pagination, since [Whitman] was in some cases using already printed unbound pages from the various independently published books. Whitman limited this Centennial Edition to 100 copies, printed in Camden (his first book to be printed in his new city) and bound by James Arnold in Philadelphia in two different bindings (black leather with marbled paper sides, and brown leather with orange cloth). The volume contains a copy of a Pearsall photograph of Whitman pasted onto a sheet of paper and inserted just before the title page indicating: "Photo'd from Life, Sept., '72, Brooklyn, N.Y.," with each copy signed "Walt Whitman / born May 31 /1819.' . . . The book is a striking example of Whitman's innovation in design. . . . Whitman had the first 100 copies bound to match his first printing of the 1876 Leaves, so that the two books could be sold as a Centennial set . . . (Folsom, Whitman Making Books/Books Making Whitman). G. F. E. Pearsall's photograph has become one of the classic images of the poet.

        Notes of a Voyage from New South Wales to the North Coast of Australia, from the Journal of the Late Francis Napier.

      Glasgow: privately printed, circa, 1876. Octavo, photographic portrait frontispiece; with eight lithographic plates, four folding maps and a single engraved map integral to the pagination; original blue cloth with spare gilt ornament. Uncommon - the only public account of an important expedition to Arnhem Land in what is now the Northern Territory. The book features a mounted photographic portrait frontispiece of Napier himself, and has been inscribed and signed by the editor James R. Napier (the cousin of Francis Napier).In 1867 Francis Napier joined the South Australian Government expedition under Captain Francis Cadell to the north coast of the state (now the Northern Territory) searching for suitable sites for settlement. Cadell had a long and swashbuckling career in exploration and trading: he had earlier won the South Australian prize for successfully navigating the Murray in a steam-powered vessel, had been involved in the Maori Wars, and in the 1870s was a whaler and trader in Fiji and neighbouring islands. 'Early in 1867 he was appointed by the South Australian government to lead an expedition to the Northern Territory to choose a site for the capital and an area for agricultural settlement. He examined the Liverpool River, went up the Roper River in a small steamer and visited Port Darwin, Anson Bay and the Victoria River. He spent most of the year in thorough investigation, but the instructions on which he acted were misdirected'(ADB). His own report, published in the South Australian Parliamentary Papers for 1867, was openly criticised at the time.As a result, Napier's "Notes" were the only public account of the expedition and are an important document of the early contact and charting of the region. It was compiled from Napier's journal by his family and privately printed in Glasgow following his death in 1875. The plates, drawn with lithographic crayon, were done by one of Napier's brother, and are signed "JMN" A bit shaken, some maps creased, cloth rubbed, a good copy overall.

        Matter and Motion.

      London: Society for Promoting Christian Knowledge, 1876. First edition, rare on the market in this condition, of Maxwell's textbook on dynamics, "a masterpiece of natural philosophy, notable especially for introducing into physics the term relativity in a passage that combines strenuous scientific insight with a mystical awareness ... [It] had a strong influence on [Henri] Poincaré" (Routledge Encyclopedia of Philosophy, p. 209). "More light is thrown on Maxwell's own opinions about the problem of relative and absolute motion and the connection between dynamics and other branches of physics by the delightful monograph Matter and Motion, published in 1876" (DSB). This book also contains, within a discussion of causality, a foreshadowing of modern ideas about chaos theory. Matter and Motion has sometimes been represented in the past as a largely non-mathematical summary of Newtonian dynamics but it is now recognized that it contains an incisive analysis of concepts such as space, time and acceleration that is a clear precursor of Einstein's work that lead to the special theory of relativity. Article 18, 'Absolute Space,' includes the statement: "All our knowledge, both of time and place, is essentially relative." Maxwell also emphasizes from the beginning of the work the notion of 'configuration' of a set of points, which he defines as "the assemblage of relative positions"this avoids the arbitrary choice of an 'origin' or 'axes' which would be needed to specify the Cartesian coordinates of the points. In art. 29 he represents such a configuration by a set of bright dots on a black field, to emphasize that there are no absolute measures of distance between the points. This can be viewed as an anticipation of Einstein's use of generalized coordinate systems in his general theory of relativity. Later, in art. 102, Maxwell summarizes the first five chapters of the book as follows: "Our whole progress up to this point may be described as a gradual development of the doctrine of relativity of all physical phenomena. Position we must evidently acknowledge to be relative, for we cannot describe the position of a body in any terms which do not express relation. The ordinary language about motion and rest does not so completely exclude the notion of their being measured absolutely, but the reason of this is, that in our ordinary language we tacitly assume that the earth is at rest ... There are no landmarks in space; one portion of space is exactly like every other portion, so that we cannot tell where we are. We are, as it were, on an unruffled sea, without stars, compass, sounding, wind or tide, and we cannot tell in what direction we are going. We have no log which we can case out to take a dead reckoning by; we may compute our rate of motion with respect to the neighbouring bodies, but we do not know how these bodies may be moving in space." The latter part of the book is concerned with the problem of the aether, the hypothetical material that physicists at the time believed must exist in order for heat and light to be transmitted through empty space. "Maxwell writes: "Energy cannot exist except in connection with matter." But energy, in the form of light and heat, traverses the space between the sun and the earth. Hence, there must be matter "existing in the interplanetary spaces" and, in fact, "disseminated through the whole of the visible universe" (art. 108). This "matter," the "aether", cannot be gravitational in proportion to its mass. Yet Newton, by means of experiments reported in the Principia, demonstrated that all matter exerts a gravitational force corresponding to its mass. Beginning with Chapter VII, Maxwell therefore very carefully reviews the theory of the pendulum and its application to the measurement of the gravitational constant. In Chapter VIII he concludes, notwithstanding the experimental evidence, that "it is still extremely doubtful whether the medium of light and electricity is a gravitating substance, though it is certainly material and has mass" (art. 145). The implicit question, standing as it does simply as an enigma, in effect sets the stage for much of the physics of the twentieth century" (thomasksimpson.com/matter.pdf). The foundations of chaos theory are usually located in a famous paper by Edward Lorenz published in 1963. But the necessary conditions for deterministic chaos were foreseen by Maxwell in the present work. "The possibility of small causes having large effects (in a perfectly deterministic universe) was anticipated by many scientists before Lorenz, and even before the birth of dynamical systems theory, which is generally accepted to have its origins in Poincaré's work on differential equations towards the end of the 19th century. Maxwell [Matter and Motion, art. 19] wrote: "There is a maxim which is often quoted, that "The same causes will always produce the same effects."" After discussing the meaning of this principle, he adds: "There is another maxim which must not be confounded with [this], which asserts that "Like causes produce like effects." This is only true when small variations in the initial circumstances produce only small variations in the final state of the system." He then gives the example of how a small displacement of railway points sends a train on different courses" (Van der Heuden, p. 85). "Maxwell's Matter and Motion first appeared in 1876 and was reprinted before the year was out. The first American edition was printed in 1878. Following several reprints on both sides of the Atlantic, Sir Joseph Larmor added notes and appendices to produce a new edition in 1920. This edition was reprinted in 1925 and at least half-a-dozen times since 1952" (Flood, McCartney & Whitaker, James Clerk Maxwell: Perspectives on his Life and Work (2014), p. 27).

        DANIEL DERONDA (Superb First Edition in Original Publisher's Cloth)

      William Blackwood & Sons, Edinburgh & London 1876 - "George Eliot" [Mary Ann Evans]. DANIEL DERONDA. In Four Volumes. Edinburgh & London: William Blackwood & Sons, 1876. First Edition in Book Form. With erratum slip in Vol. III. Original dark maroon publisher's cloth, lettered in gilt. A VERY GOOD untrimmed set, entirely untouched, with excellent eye appeal. The book edition is far more rare in commerce than the parts edition; we've seen very few four-volume sets as nice as this one since 1993, when we first began dealing in high spot Victorian Fiction. Owner inscription to front pastedown of Volume I. A touch of minor wear and slight fade to all spines, Vol. III has some minor abrasion to the front cover, some corners gently bumped. Contents in excellent condition, inner hinges all virtually tight and intact. DANIEL DERONDA was George Eliot's final novel, the only one she set in contemporary Victorian society. The work's complex and sophisticated mixture of social satire and moral deliberation, in tandem with its empathetic portrayal of Jewish ideas and ideals, became the final emphatic (and shamelessly subversive) social statement by one of Victorian Fiction's greatest literary giants. Adapted many times for stage and screen, DANIEL DERONDA was most recently (2002) the subject of a three-part multi-award winning BBC miniseries written by Andrew Davies and directed by Tom Hooper. A lovely well-matched set. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Adventures of Tom Sawyer.

      Hartford: American Publishing Company, , 1876. Square octavo. Original blue vertically-ribbed cloth decoratively stamped in black and gilt and lettered in gilt and blind on front cover and spine, back cover decoratively stamped in black with publisher's device stamped in black in the centre, buff endpapers. Wood-engraved frontispiece and numerous wood-engraved text illustrations by True Williams and others. A little expert restoration to spine ends, only very mild rubbing, spine a bit dulled, front board gilt bright, internally clean with just a little foxing. An excellent copy in bright cloth. Rare first American edition, first printing, first state, of one of the universally recognized masterpieces of American literature, Twain's irrepressible and unforgettable "true boy's book". The first novel Mark Twain wrote without a co-author, Tom Sawyer is also his most clearly "autobiographical? Enlivened by extraordinary and melodramatic events, it is otherwise a realistic depiction of the experiences, people and places that Mark Twain knew as a child" (Rasmussen, 459). Originally published in England (without illustrations), Tom Sawyer arrived at a momentous point in American history: Custer had recently lost the battle at Little Big Horn and America was celebrating its centennial. "Publication of Tom Sawyer was little noticed? The book has, however, proved to be one of the most durable works in American literature. By the time of Twain's death, it was his top-selling book. It has been in print continuously since 1876, and has outsold all other Mark Twain works" (Rasmussen, 459). "This was a true boy's book, and surviving copies are proof of how rough little boys can be on books" (MacDonnell, 40). First printing, first state (with "THE" on half title in 10-point rather than 14-point type), peach endpapers, printed on wove paper, preliminary matter paginated [I]-XVI and front and rear triple flyleaves of laid paper.
