Baldwin was to issue a special Japanese export catalog 20 yrs. later in which a number of the engines shown here were to be featured. In addition to these the catalog features a number of engines especially adapted for heavy freight on steep gradients that utilized four pairs of driving wheels. These engines were purpose designed for the mining industry and, indeed, the catalog contains a number of testimonials as to their performance.

Unfortunately his backers in Europe failed to procure the necessary working capital for the exploitation of the venture, so the author missed making a large fortune ...

      First Obtainable Printing of \"Is She His Wife? or, Something Singular\"DICKENS, Charles. Is She His Wife? or, Something Singular. A Comic Burletta in One Act. Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1877.First obtainable printing. Sixteenmo. 80pp.Original brown cloth, decoratively blocked in black and blind, lettered in gilt and black. Off-white endpapers printed in red. A fine, bright copy. Housed in a custom maroon cloth slipcase, black morocco label on spine, gilt-stamped.Apparently no copy exists of the first (1837) edition of this play, Dickensí third published play (first performed 6 March 1837); this is the only published work by Dickens to which this situation applies. (The Gimbel collection has playbills for performances on 13 March and 6 April 1837.) Eckel mentions that the only known copy of this edition was at Osgood for their 1877 reprint and was subsequently destroyed in a fire there in 1879. A census in Eckel finds only three extant copies of the 1873 British reprint. Thus, the Osgood reprint of 1877 is the first obtainable printing of this piece.(The Gimbel collection does have a copy [of the 1873 English], probably the one mentioned by Eckel as lacking the back wrapper; the extensive McQuire collection of American Dickens did not have a copy; Vander Poel had both green and brick cloth variants of the 1877, as did Gimbel.)Eckel, 159ff.

        A Thousand Miles up the Nile

      London: Longmans, Green and Co, 1877. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. pp. xxv, 732, copiously illustrated with full-page plates and illustrations in the text from Edwards' own drawings, two colored folding maps (Egypt, Lower Nubia). In the publisher's original red cloth decorated with Egyptian motifs in red and black; all edges gilt. Recently rebacked (original spine retained); binding sound, contents clean and bright. Edwards (1831-1892) already had a successful career as a novelist when she traveled to Egypt for the first time in 1873 and discovered her lifelong passion. She and her traveling companion, Lucy Renshawe, hired a boat in Cairo and "sailed to Wadi Halfa, accompanying friends met on the crossing from Italy. While at Abu Simbel the party discovered, excavated, and described in detail a previously unknown small temple with a painted chamber. [The two women] also visited Syria, crossed the Lebanese ranges to Damascus and Baalbek, and traveled on to Constantinople" (DNB). On her return to England, Edwards read extensively about ancient Egypt and studied hieroglyphics before writing this book, based on her experiences and the detailed notes and measurements she made on the journey. It was the first general archaeological survey of Egypt's ruins and earned Edwards the admiration of the leading archaeologists of the day, as well as praise from the popular press for "its 'brilliant descriptions of scenery and the exactness of its information' and as 'a delightful, gossiping book'" (DNB). A recognized classic of travel literature, it has been reprinted many times, but is quite scarce in the first edition.

Bei beiden Bänden der Rücken der Pappbände wohl erneuert und mit Halbleinen verstärkt. Beim Tafelband ist der Rücken zum Teil angeplatzt. Sonst guter Zustand beider Bände. // Der Papyrus Rhind ist eine altägyptische, auf Papyrus verfasste Abhandlung zu verschiedenen mathematischen Themen, die wir heute als Arithmetik, Algebra, Geometrie, Trigonometrie und Bruchrechnung bezeichnen. Er gilt neben dem etwas älteren, aber weniger umfangreichen Papyrus Moskau 4676 als eine der wichtigsten Quellen für unser Wissen über die Mathematik im Alten Ägypten und wird auf etwa 1550 v. Chr. datiert. Der Papyrus ist benannt nach dem schottischen Anwalt und Antiquar Alexander Henry Rhind, der ihn 1858 in Luxor, Oberägypten erwarb. Die Schriftstücke wurden wohl wenig zuvor bei illegalen Grabungen auf dem gegenüber von Luxor westlich des Nils liegenden Gebiet Thebens in oder nahe dem Ramesseum gefunden, genauere Umstände sind nicht bekannt. August Adolf Eisenlohr (geb. 6. Oktober 1832 in Mannheim; gest. 24. Februar 1902 in Heidelberg) war ein deutscher Ägyptologe. 1877 erwarb er sich große Verdienste um die Mathematikgeschichte durch seine Arbeit über den Papyrus Rhind. /lager

      - This is the complete fair copy of his 12-stanza poem, "In the Old South Church".

It is signed and dated, "John G. Whittier". This Church was founded in 1678, and is still in operation. Between 1872 and 1875 it was rebuilt on Boylston St. This poem was used as a dedication some 22 years later. It is boldly penned On four vellum pages. This first page is soiled but readable while the remainder is bold and beautiful. Quite scarce and interesting. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Le soleil

      Paris: Gauthier-Villars, 1877. Second Edition. Half vellum. Very good. Second Edition. Half vellum. Three vols., 8vo (248 × 160 mm), pp. xx, 428; viii, 484; 19 plates (1 uncoloured, 12 coloured and 6 folding), and numerous engravings; occasional foxing, mostly affecting text; bound in half vellum with red lettering pieces; some rubbing, a split to joint of lower board at the the base of the first volume (c. 55 mm), still intact; otherwise very good. Second, augmented, edition.Pietro Angelo Secchi, SJ (1818-1878), Director of the Observatory of the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome for 28 years, was a pioneer in astronomical spectroscopy and among the first scientists to prove that the sun was a star. The Sun remained an interest for Secchi throughout his career; he made drawings of solar eruptions and sunspots and compiled a record of sunspot activity, and in observing solar eclipses proved that the solar corona observed during these events were part of the sun and not a phenomenon resulting from the eclipse itself.An accomplished inventor, he developed the heliospectograph, the star-spectroscope and the telespectroscope, and from 1863 began collecting the spectra of stars, accumulating some 4000 stellar spectrograms. From this information Secchi was able to produce a system for categorising stars according to type, the five Secchi classes, a classification eventually superseded by the Harvard system, developed by Edward C. Pickering in the 1880s, and which became the norm by the end of the 1890s.The present work on the Sun uses this knowledge of stellar spectroscopy to demonstrate the similarities between the Sun and other stars, as well as showing that certain absorption lines in the spectrum of the Sun are caused by aborption in the Earth's atmosphere. It contains beautiful early colour images of the surface of the Sun, solar eruptions and other phenomena, detailed spectroscopic charts, and engravings (with descriptions) of many of the scientific instruments employed by Secchi for his work, making it also a useful source on the history of astronomical measuring instruments, many of which he designed and built himself. It is unusual in being published in French (and in France), unlike Secchi's other works, in Italian.COPAC records six copies of this second, augmented, edition in UK institutions.

        Porträt Marie Grünewald, Ganzfigur auf einem Stuhl sitzend.

      1877. Bleistift, auf Velin, rechts unten datiert "1877", auf Untersatz montiert und dort bezeichnet "Marie Grünewald / war mit Math. Loretz in Weimar bei Preller". 24:16,7 cm. Provenienz: Nachlaß Friedrich Schmöle. Die schriftliche Anmerkung der Künstlerin läßt den Schluß zu, daß Mathilde Schmöle in Weimar eine Schülerin des Malers und Radierers F. Preller d. Ä. (1804-1878) war.. Die Malerin und Zeichnerin Mathilde Schmöle war seit 1876 mit dem Frankfurter Kaufmann F.P. Schmöle (1844-1924) verheiratet, der 1904 seinen Beruf aufgab, um sich ganz dem Malen und Reisen zu widmen. Nach der Vita ihres Mannes, der sich 1872 ein Landhaus in Kronberg erbauen ließ und dort in Kontakt trat mit den örtlichen Malern, könnte sie mit diesem gemeinsam bis 1905 Studienfahrten in die nähere Umgebung Frankfurts, nach Wetzlar und Braunfels sowie zwischen 1905 und 1913 nach Belgien und Holland, an die deutsche Nordseeküste, nach Sylt, Helgoland, in die Schweiz und nach Norditalien unternommen haben. Sie malte Landschaften, Porträts und Genrebilder. In engem brieflichem Kontakt stand sie mit Berta Riehl, Ehefrau des Kulturhistorikers und Novellisten W.H. Riehl, dessen Tochter Helene Riehl (geb. 1850) eine Landschaftsmalerin wurde. Über die Mitschülerin Marie Grünewald sind keine weiteren Informationen überliefert.

Alfred Espinas (1844--1922) est considéré comme l'un des précurseurs de l'éthologie. "Nul être vivant n'est seul. . La vie en commun n'est pas dans le règne animal un fait accidentel. . Elle est au contraire , et nous nous croyons en mesure de le prouver abondamment dans le présent ouvrage, un fait normal, constant, universel. . Le milieu social est la condition nécessaire de la conservation et du renouvellement de la vie. C'est là une loi biologique qu'il ne sera pas inutile de mettre en lumière." Pour l'auteur, "l'étude des sociétés animales forme non pas un chapitre préliminaire mais le premier chapitre de la sociologie". Très rare thèse de doctorat à la Sorbonne. L'ouvrage a été réédité l'année suivante, puis en 1935.

"At the time of controversy in Britain over the Eastern question, in the winter of 1876-7, Burnaby, on leave, travelled in Turkish-ruled Asia Minor. With his faithful soldier-servant George Radford, he went from Constantinople via Angora to Kars and Batumi. He was welcomed by Turkish officials and others, hoping for British support against Russia. He wrote On Horseback through Asia Minor (2 vols., 1877). Another proudly British travelogue, its message was pro-Turkish and anti-Russian, asserting that, despite faults, Turkish rule was better than Russian, and that Russia was a threat to India. While he was writing the book the Russo-Turkish War began, and he demanded British support for Turkey. The publisher paid him £2500 plus further royalties and, despite radical criticism, his ‘panegyric upon the pashas’ (Alexander, 93) sold well" (ODNB). Howgego IV:B94. Reprint. Half Calf and Boards. Very Good. 8vo.

      Paris: Masson, 1877. 1st edition. <p>Discovery of the First Anaerobic Pathogen</p><p>Pasteur, Louis (1822-95) & Joubert, Jules Francois (1834-1910). Charbon et septicemie. Offprint from: Comptes rendus de l&#39;Academie des Sciences 85 (1877). 8vo. 24pp. Paris: G. Masson, 1877. 223 x 142 mm. Original gray printed wrappers. Fine apart from insignificant staining. </p><p>First Edition. Garrison-Morton 1932.1; 2490. Pasteur and Joubert&#39;s paper on anthrax marked Pasteur&#39;s full-fledged entry into the domain of medical research. Pasteur and Joubert challenged the experiments performed by Paul Bert, with which Bert claimed to have shown that blood from a diseased animal could produce death even after the anthrax bacteria had been killed with compressed oxygen. Pasteur demonstrated that Bert, using old blood, had confused anthrax with a form of septicemia caused by the previously unknown putrefactive microorganism Cl. septicum -- the first anaerobic pathogen discovered-- which becomes active approximately eighteen hours after death. Pasteur sought to clarify the relationship between anthrax and septicemia, and to demonstrate that Cl. septicum, like the anthrax bacterium, had a dormant spore phase resistant to environmental assault. He also noted the antagonism of Bacillus anthracis to other aerobic microorganisms, thus foreshadowing the development of antibiosis. DSB. Norman 1659. </p>

        Laughable lyrics: A Fourth Book of Nonsense Poems, Songs, Botany, Music

      London: Robert John Bush, 1877. Square octavo; original maroon cloth, rebacked, recased; some loss of letters on front cover but a good copy nonetheless, with the final 4 pp. advertisements. Lear had written his first Book of Nonsense for the children of his patron the Earl of Derby in 1845. Laughable Lyrics, the fourth nonsense book, and &#39;last but not least&#39; (Muir, p. 147) &#39;included some of the best manifestations of Lear&#39;s rhythmic gifts and his flair for the invention of words&hellip;&#39; (Thwaite, p. 127). &#39;His work&hellip; provides an almost unique example of the perfectly matched text and picture&hellip; it was due to him that entertainment bulked larger than instruction in the late Victorian children&#39;s book&#39; (Bland, p. 256).
