        Panorama of San Francisco from California St. Hill

      Morse's Gallery, [San Francisco] 1877 - Original gilt cloth binding (some old dampstaining to the lower edge of the covers), cloth chemise, half morocco and cloth slipcase, spine gilt. Perhaps the most famous early view of San Francisco. One of the landmarks of 19th-century American photography, and an iconic image of San Francisco. This remarkable panorama dramatically shows the growth of San Francisco nearly thirty years after the onset of the Gold Rush. In the 1870s, San Francisco audiences were hungry for panoramic displays, and the rest of the country was intrigued by San Francisco, the largest city in the West. Muybridge satisfied all appetites by providing a 360° degree view of the city, creating what Rebecca Solnit calls "an impossible sight, a vision of the city in all directions, a transformation of a circular space into a linear photograph." David Harris calls Muybridge's San Francisco panorama "one of the supreme conceptual and technical achievements in the history of architectural photography." Eadweard Muybridge took the photographs that make up this panorama from a vantage point on the central tower of the unfinished Nob Hill residence of railroad baron Mark Hopkins, then the highest point in the developed portion of the city. The work was done in June or July, 1877, and took some five hours to complete, based on the shifting shadows seen in the image. Muybridge began in the late morning with a view toward the southwest (the tenth plate in the panorama) and proceeded in a clockwise direction, moving his camera away from the sun from one image to the next. Muybridge's view is from some 380 feet above the sea level, and the view reaches some fifty miles into the distance and encompasses a width of fifteen miles. Despite the great scope of the work precise details of the city are visible throughout, and one can clearly see hanging laundry, ships in the harbor, shop signs, and a clock on a tower in the fifth panel reading quarter to two (other copies of the panorama show the clock reading nearly five-thirty). San Francisco spreads throughout the panorama and the dynamism of the city is clearly evident, as many unfinished buildings and roads under construction are also seen. Muybridge's panorama was advertised as being for sale in July 1877, offered for eight dollars rolled or ten dollars accordion-folded and bound, as in the present copy. Buyers could buy the panorama directly from Muybridge, or through Morse's Gallery. Eadweard Muybridge (1830-1904) was one of the great photographic innovators of the nineteenth century. Born in England, he came to San Francisco in 1855 and built his reputation on photographs of San Francisco, Yosemite, and other western locales. The year after he produced his San Francisco panorama, Muybridge, at the behest of another railroad magnate, Leland Stanford, produced a sequence of photographs of a galloping horse that proved that all four of the animals hooves were off the ground at the same time. Muybridge's work in sequential photography, in which he photographed animals and humans in motion, laid the groundwork for motion pictures. A remarkable view of San Francisco, and a high point in the photographic representation of the West.

Falconer, "Muybridge's Window to the Past: A Wet-Plate View of San Francisco," in California History (Summer 1978), pp.130-157. Folding albumen photographic panorama mounted on eleven panels, (7½ x 87¼ inches overall), backed with cloth, caption title, photographic credit, and publisher's imprint printed on center panel.

        Slave Trade. No. 4 (1877). Correspondence Respecting the Seizure of Slaves on board the "Rokeby" and "Koina" by her Majesty's Ship "Rifleman".

      London, Harrison and Sons, 1877.. Folio (210 x 320 mm). 16 pp. Cloth-covered spine.. Rare documentary material on the interception of the ships and the seizure of slaves on board. British-operated ships continuously carried hajjis between Jeddah and ports in the Gulf, and the steamers were often used for the transport of slaves, sometimes with the cognizance of the captain. "The system of issuing tickets by the agents of British vessels at Jeddah without any name being inserted thereon, and the absence of passenger lists, no doubt render it extremely difficeult for the masters of ships to ascertain whether any of their passengers are slaves; and [...] it is one which cannot but place the gravest obstacles in our way in the suppression of the Slave Trade [...] The majority of the inhabitants of the Hedjaz and Yemen, from highest to the lowest, are interested in the Slave Trade, domestic slaves being a matter of necessity, servants not being procurable, what few there are bad [...] The Mahommedans consider the institution of slavery to be one of mutual benefit, and the slaves are geenrally the best dressed and best fed members of the household [...] It is very difficult to make any Mahommedan consider that slavery is a crime. He usually contends that the negro is recued from barbarism, and is taught the Mahommedan religion, and on that ground he defends the system; and indeed, he regards himself somewhat in the light of a missionary, and thinks he is extending his faith. The question is, therefore, beset with some difficulty [...]". - Occasional edge repairs. - OCLC 872281698 (Internet resource only).

      New York: Comstock & Cline, 1877. - Folio, (17 5/8 x 14 3/8 inches). Fine folding lithographed map of Coos County, 10 double-page maps, 12 single-page maps, most with original hand-color.

Double-page maps include: Geological Map of New Hampshire, Railroad Map of the United States, New England, New Hampshire and Vermont, Carroll County, Grafton County, Merrimack County, Cheshire County, Hillsborough County, and Rockingham County. "In 1853 [Walling] entered on his life work as a cartographer, and between that date and 1870 did a great work in the preparation of maps. His work extended over a large part of the Northern states. He prepared and published the well-known map of Massachusetts, which was the product in part of Borden's survey and in part the result of his own painstaking labor. About 1870 he became a professor of mathematics in Lafayette college, which office he retained for two years. For some years thereafter he was an assistant in the United States coast survey. Having acquired an interest in geological problems, he then became an officer of the national geological survey" (obituary, Cambridge Tribune, 1888). Hitchcock "served as New Hampshire State Geologist from 1868 to 1878 and taught at Dartmouth College from 1868 to 1908, holding the Hall Professorship of Geology and Mineralogy. Hitchcock's survey produced a three volume work, 'The Geology of New Hampshire' (1874-1878) and the folio, 'Atlas accompanying the report on the geology of New Hampshire.' The maps in the atlas comprise the first detailed, comprehensive map of the bedrock and surfacial geology of the state. Hitchcock used to name the rock units and designated their 'type localities.' Most of these rock formation names are still in use. In addition to geology, he contributed to a wide range of fields including fieldwork in paleontology, bedrock and glaciology, economic geology, and volcanology" (Dartmouth College Special Collections Library online).

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.

Being Thirty-Eight Woodcuts Illustrating the Life, Parables & Miracles of Our Blessed Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ, With the Proper Descriptions thereof, extracted from the Translation of the New Testament, by John Wiclif, Sometime Rector of Lutterworth. London: Printed at the Sign of The Grasshopper, by Unwin Brothers, The Gresham Press., 1877.First edition. One of 257 copies printed and signed by the Unwin Brothers. This being number 212. Two separate parts, each numbered and signed. The first being the prospectus with the title-page as above and [12] pp. (9 3/4 x 7 3/8 inches; 248 x 187 mm). The second and main part being the bible (10 x 7 7/8 inches; 253 x 200 mm) and comprising [3], 38, [3] leaves and with thirty-eight woodblock plates each facing a page of text. The text is printed in black with red initials on verso, recto blank. Woodblock plates are facing text, printed on recto, verso blank. Printed on special handmade paper, in Caxton Type No. 2. With a preface by A.P. Stanley.Original drab boards, bound to the style of the period. Boards stamped in blind, in a design taken from an early block book in the British Museum. Spine lettered in gilt. Two brass clasps, lacking the strap attachment. Top edge dyed maroon, others uncut. Boards a bit soiled and rubbed along edges. Spine with some chipping and some wear to head and tail-pieces. Prospectus in original printed paper wrappers. Some very light soiling. Overall a very good copy of this interesting production.This limited edition was produced for the occurrence of the Caxton Celebration of 1877. The original woodblocks dating sometime between 1470-1540 were purchased by the Unwin brothers and used to print the plates which pair up nicely with the facsimile text of Wiclif's New Testament of 1525. It is unknow what work these woodblocks were originally used for the printing of, as the have not been "recognized as belonging to any printed book"... "In issuing them, combined with a suitable descriptive text, our thought has been to produce, as nearly as possible, a counterpart of an old Biblia Pauperum, and thus form a fitting memorial not only of the Caxton Celebration, but also of the Wiclif Quincentenart." (Unwin Brothers, from the note by the printer).Herbert, 2008.HBS 66069.$2,500

        Ein mathematisches Handbuch der alten Ägypter. (Papyrus Rhind des British Museum). Erster Band: Commentar; Zweiter Band: Tafeln. Übersetzt und erklärt von August Eisenlohr.

      Leipzig: Hinrichs, 1877.. 3 Bll., II, 296 S. mit zahlreichen Abbildungen im Text; 24 Tafeln (Druck in schwarz-rot); gr. 8° (Kommentarband), Folio (Tafelband); gebunden, Orig.-Halbeinen der Zeit;. 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

        Excellent and scarce Autograph Manuscript Signed, 4 pages 4to, n.p., Sept. 1877

      - This is the complete fair copy of his 12-stanza poem, "In the Old South Church". It begins, "She came and stood in the Old South Church a wonder and a sign, With a look the old time sibyls wore, half-crazed and half divine." In conclusion the final stanza is, "So long as Boston shall Boston be, and her bay-tides rise and fall, Shall freedom stand in the Old South Church And plead for the rights of all!" 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.

        Des sociétés animales. Etude de psychologie comparée

      Germer Baillière, Paris 1877 - In-8. [217 x 137 mm] Collation : 389 pp. Demi-chagrin rouge, dos à nerfs orné, couverture imprimée conservées. (Reliure récente.). Première édition. 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.

        On Horseback Through Asia Minor

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle and Rivington, 1877. Two volumes complete - Volume One - xxxii, 352pp and Volume Two - xix, [1], 399pp, [1]. Slightly later half-calf and marbled paper over boards, semi-raised bands, spines in six panels, morocco title label to second panel, volume to fourth, remaining panels with central flower head and volute device, with volute corner pieces making up a frame, edges sprinkled red. Slightly rubbed to extremities, one or two small scuffs, but generally a bright set. Internally some light foxing to endpapers, folding map to volume two with old repair to reverse and is folded poorly, otherwise bright and clean. Previous owner's circular bookplate to front pastedowns. With a photographic frontispiece, and three folding maps. The Sixth edition (published in the same year as the first) of Burnaby's second work. "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.

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>
