        Charbon et septicemie. Offprint in printed wrappers

      Paris: Masson, 1877. 1st edition. Discovery of the First Anaerobic PathogenPasteur, Louis (1822-95) & Joubert, Jules Francois (1834-1910). Charbon et septicemie. Offprint from: Comptes rendus de l'Academie des Sciences 85 (1877). 8vo. 24pp. Paris: G. Masson, 1877. 223 x 142 mm. Original gray printed wrappers. Fine apart from insignificant staining. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 1932.1; 2490. Pasteur and Joubert's paper on anthrax marked Pasteur'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.

        Oracle of Stamboul

      Headline Review, 2011. 1st printing 1st. Hardcover. Fine/Fine. Signed by Author. Fine unread UK first in likewise Fine dustwrapper. SIGNED by the author to title page. First run copies of this title are scarce as the book was recalled due to a print error. Signed UK firsts are more so. ************A magical historical novel about an astonishing eight-year-old girl in the last days of the Ottoman Empire. It is 1877, on the shores of the Black Sea, and the omens for the newborn Eleonora Cohen are hardly promising. Not only does her mother die in childbirth, but her village is being attacked by the Tsar's Royal Cavalry. However, despite this bad beginning, a sour stepmother and a traumatic journey in the hold of a ship, young Eleonora grows into a remarkably clever but very engaging child. And when a heartbreaking tragedy leaves her marooned in Istanbul, where spies and boarded-up harems and sudden death are as much a part of life as delicious spices, Paris fashions and rosewater, it is Eleonora's extraordinary courage and character which lead her straight to the Sultan's court, and to her salvation.************

        GOLD REGIONS OF SOUTH EASTERN AFRICA, Accompanied by Biographical Sketch of the Author

      London: Edward Stanford, 1877. First edition. Photographic frontispiece, several other illustrations, facsimile of a Livingstone letter, large folding map in rear pocket. 8vo, publisher’s original green cloth gilt lettered, and with gilt pictorial decorations on spine and upper cover, both covers decoratively ruled in black. xxiv, 187, [1] blank, 189-240 ads. A very handsome copy, the binding, text and illustrations all very bright and clean, some very minor rubbing to spine edges, light aging. RARE FIRST EDITION. Baines arrived in Cape Colony in 1842, and from 1848 to 1851 he accompanied the British army in the Xhosa Wars as an artist. At the recommendation of the Royal Geographic Society he was appointed artist to Livingstone's Zambesi expedition in 1858. Ten years later he headed an expedition to explore the gold fields of Tati, providing a written description of the route from the captial of the Transvaal republic. His meticulous mapping and description of the regions he explored helped fill in the blank spots of earlier maps, and his descriptions of the gold regions helped open the path to prosperity for white South Africa. This is the first book to contain an account of the gold discoveries in the Transvaal. The ads at the rear, from firms in Algoa Bay and Port Elizabeth as well as London, give an interesting picture of the options presented to a person who might chose to follow Baines's lure and emigrate from England to South Africa.

        Orígen de las especies. Por medio de la seleccion natural ò la conservacion de las razas. Favorecidas en la lucha por la existencia. Traducida con autorizacion del autor de la sexta y última edicion inglesa por Enrique Godinez.

      Madrid, Perojo, (1877). 8vo. Entirely uncut in the original green full cloth binding with gilt lettering and blindtooling to spine and front board. Gilding on spine faded. Neatly recased, preserving all of the original spine. Inner hinges re-enforced, thus a bit tight. A few underlinings in red crayon, otherwise internally very nice, clean, and fresh. Ex-libris to inside of front board. Tiny bookeller's stamp to front free end-paper (Duran Libero Madrid). VII, (1), 573 pp. + 1 folded plate (after p. 128).. The exceedingly rare first edition of the first Spanish translation of Darwin's "Origin of Species", including two letters of Darwin that are not published elsewhere (not present in any English printing nor in any of the other translations). The first Spanish "Origin" is arguably the scarcest of all the translations of the work and very few copies of it are known. A second edition appeared later the same year, also published in Madrid, but by Rojas (it has 589 pp.). A 28-page long torso of a translation, which was suspended and had no further dissemination, had appeared in a periodical in 1872. OCLC lists no copies in libraries outside of Spain and the UK. Freeman: 770. Blanco&Llorca: 34 (Blanco & Llorca: Bibliogrfía crítica illustrada de las obras de Darwin en españa, (1857-2005). "Unlike what had been the case in England, Darwin did not first become widely known in Spanish-speaking countries for the account of his travel around the world but was controversially introduced by the impact his "Origin of the Species" was having everywhere else. It is true, however, that his name was already familiar among scientists and intellectuals but it was "The Origin of the Species" and its translations that made him a household name. ... The full authorized version of "The Origin of Species" was finally translated in 1877 by Enrique Godínez. It had Darwin's endorsement and it was published with a letter from him, where he expressed being glad to have the book translated into Spanish because that would mean that it might be known not only "in the large kingdom of Spain" but also "in the widest extended regions where spanish [sic] is spoken" (Zabalbeascoa, 1968, p. 275).It took almost twenty years to have Darwin's best known work translated into Spanish while the German, French and Italian-speaking readership had had their own versions of "The Origin of Species" since 1860, 1862 and 1875 respectively (Núñez, 1969, p.27). We know it was not due to the author's unwillingness. Brisset states that after the success of "The Origin of Species" he communicated to his publisher that he wished his ideas be known abroad (2002, p. 178). This gap reveals that Spain was definitely lagging behind in spreading Darwin's ideas. We could attribute this tardiness to the "governmental and ecclesiastical pressure" that Dale J. Pratt mentions when he states that "open discussion was all but impossible" (2001, p. 26). It all changed after the Revolution of September 1868, which brought more openness to new ideas and the secularization of education.The situation in other Spanish-speaking countries was no different as regards the delay in the dissemination of Darwin's theory. Most of them were under a very strong Catholic influence and the idea of man descending from monkeys, as it was shallowly communicated, was as hard to swallow as when other visionaries had dared to say that the Earth was round or that the planets revolved around the Sun. Even today, almost 150 years after the publication of "The Origin of Species", the debate is no less controversial and very much alive when some conservative groups in certain parts of the United States aim at having the theory of evolution banished from the school curriculum to have the idea of intelligent design taught instead, as mentioned previously." (Elisa Paoletti, Translations as Shapers of Image: Don Carlos Darwin and his Voyage into Spanish on H.M.S. Beagle. In: "Érudit", Volume 18, nr. 1, 2005, pp. 55-77)

        The History of England By Hume and Smollett

      London -Virtue and Co., 1877 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. An illustrated History of England with steel engravingsand colour maps. The History of England from the Invasion of Julius Caesar to the end of the Reign of James II By David Hume; continued From the Reign of William and Mary tothe Death of GeorgeIIby Tobias Smollett with a continuation to the present day From the Ascension of George III to the thirty-sixth Year of the Reign of Queen Victoria Including a Narrative of the Franco-Prussian War by Dr. E. Farr and E. H. Nolan. Fifteen divisions of sixteen being four volumes bound in sixteen divisions. The History of England (1754 - 62) is David Hume's great work on England's history which was written in instalments while he was serving as librarian to the Faculty of Advocates in Edinburgh. His Historybecame a best-seller, finally giving him the financial independence he had long sought. Both the British Library and the Cambridge University Library still list him as David Hume, the historian. More a category of books than a single work, Hume's History spanned from the invasion of Julius Caesar to the Revolution of 1688 and went through over 100 editions. Many considered it the standard history of England until Thomas Macaulay's The History of England from the Accession of James the Second. Tobias George Smollett (1721 - 1771) was a Scottish poet and author. He was best known for his picaresque novels, such as The Adventures of Roderick Random and The Adventures of Peregrine Pickle, which influenced later novelists such as Charles Dickens. Smollett wrote what he regarded as his major work, A Complete History of England, from 1757 to 1765. Plates have not been bound according to binder's instructions, rather they are bound in to front of divisions. With 'Virtue and Co. ' binders label to rear pastedowns. Condition:.

The Problem with Hints for Its Solution. By Ithi Kefalende. 1851". Appendix A, pp [493] - 496, is a list of aeronautic books used by the author in preparation of the text..

Mansfield known primarily for his work as a chemist who developed a process for extracting benzol from coal-tar, thereby laying the foundation for the aniline industry, as well as his publication 'Theory of Salts', which is viewed as his most important contribution to theoretical chemistry. Mansfield's scientific orientation notable in the perspective & approach displayed in this work where he devotes much thought & consideration to motive & powered aerial navigation, as [then] current LTA efforts were subject to the whims of nature as they had been, for the most part, ever since Montgolfier. As were all his publications, this one, though written in the early 1850s, was issued posthumously, Mansfield having died prematurely, at the young age of 36, from burns suffered during a laboratory accident. The DNB describes this title of his as "one of the most striking and suggestive works on its subject." Somewhat scarce book- no copy at auction since 1990. . Illustrated with 160 [=159, as there is no Figure 50] intratextual figures, diagrams & schematics.
