BEZOLD, Wilhelm von (1837-1907
Boston: L. Prang and Company, 1876. 8vo (8.25 x 5.5 inches; 207 x 144 mm). 274 pages. Eleven color plates (in thirteen): plate III in three parts (the first two die cut, the apertures showing colored circles beneath to illustrate perceptual variation with different combinations of adjacent colors); black-and-white illustrations in text. Original russet beveled cloth, gilt-lettered on spine. A very good copy with light wear at extremities, some occasional modest foxing, a few chips to edges of title. Item #404913 FIRST AMERICAN EDITION, with the addition of a four-page preface by the author and enhancements to the text based on knowledge gained since the publication of the original German edition of 1874. Wilhelm von Bezold was a German physicist and meteorologist, and sided with Helmholtz in the color-vision controversy with Hering. After him is named the assimilation or spreading effect, according to which hue and intensity of perceived colors from threadlike or ribbonlike stimuli change depending on nearby stimuli. The third plate, with its two upper plates apertured to put varying color combinations against a solid background, is a fine example of this in practice. When he first published the book in German in 1874, Bezold hoped to gain greater attention from painters and artisans who he felt could benefit from his color theory, adapted from Helmholtz's cone of light mixture. To illustrate his thoery, he provided colored conceptual figures of the base plane and a view looking from the top of the "domed" cone downward. See Rolf F.

Heartsill, W.W.
1876. Privately Printed. [8] 264 [1] pages. First Edition. Limited to 100 hand-made copies. 61 original photographs mounted on 19 plates (including Capt. Sam J. Richardson in his leopard-skin britches). All photographs with printed identification beneath picture except the final picture which has Heartsill’s hand-written identification in Heartsill’s hand. Howes H-380. Dornbusch II, 1046. In Tall Cotton 86. Coulter 224. Nevins I, p. 102. Raines, p. 111. Winkler Friend 3778. “Printed by the author, page by page, on a hand-press; one of the rarest journals by a Confederate combatant.” – Howes. Dr. Bell I. Wiley, foremost Confederate historian, excerpt from his 17-page introduction to the McCowat-Mercer 1491 Days reprint: “‘Unique’ is a much abused adjective, but it can be safely applied to the Confederate journal of William Williston Heartsill. The title is strikingly unique; so is the method by which the diary becomes a book. Heartsill printed the journal himself, one page at a time, on an "Octavo Novelty Press," a crude machine which cost about ten dollars. The press was kept at Heartsill's store, and the printing done at odd time when business was slack. Sometimes the completion of a single page required several days; and the printing of the whole book extended over the period December 9, 1874-July 1, 1876.' "Moreover, Heartsill included in each copy sixty-one different original photographs. During the lengthy printing of the book Heartsill encouraged his former comrades-in-arms to send him photographs of themselves. Sixty-one complied, and Heartsill–lacking any better met … [Click Below for Full Description]

(Sherlock Holmes) Bell, Joseph (1837-1911)
N.p: undated. 1 page. 12mo. The Model for Sherlock Holmes. A rare ALS of the Scottish surgeon Joseph Bell, on whom the character of Sherlock Holmes was based. In full: "Dear Miss Alyce, The enclosed is all I can get for you. But I trust it is very nice. He has taken to a typewriter but you see he furnishes nicely my Autograph, Joseph Bell." It would seem more than likely that the Autograph in question was Arthur Conan Doyle's. "Conan Doyle, as he became known, entered Edinburgh University medical school in 1876 and witnessed a variety of medical characters, chief among them his mentor, Joseph Bell. Bell was a master of deduction from minutiae of evidence, such as gravel on a shoe conveying a patient's route to work, the better to impress the patient and his own attendant students. Otherwise, Bell was austere and scientific with students and patients, in contrast to Sir Patrick Heron Watson, of whom it was said that 'nobody in Scotland was ready to die until they had first seen Watson'. The contrast between Bell's and P. H. Watson's manners survives in Holmes's cold-bloodedness contrasted with John Watson's humanity" (ODNB). Some wrinkles and a few stains, very good.

New Orleans: Publisher Not Identified, 1876. A REVIEW OF Misrule, Greed and Plunder IN LOUISIANA, FOR EIGHT YEARS PAST, WITH REASONS FOR HER PEOPLE SUBMITTING TO BE ROBBED. Edmund Abell [Judge of the First District Criminal Court of New Orleans]. New Orleans: [publisher not identified], 1876. Original printed wraps, 17 p.; couple annotations, corrections in contemporary hand; institutional rubberstamp to upper wrap, St. Joseph Abbey, St. Benedict, La.; file copy of The New Orleans Bee [Crescent City newspaper, 1827-1925].

Antoine Dubuclet was born in Iberville Parish, Louisiana, the son of Antoine Dubuclet, Sr., and Rosale (Belly); both were free blacks.

With Portraits, Making A Complete Rogues' Gallery, by Phil. Farley, Detective. Published by the author in 1876. This is a first edition hardcover book measuring about 9" x 6" with 638 pages. The date on the copyright page is 1875 and the date on the title page is 1876. The title page also says Author's Edition, which means that Philip Farley published the book himself.
