        Waltoniana

      London: Pickering and Co.,, 1878. Inedited Remains in Verse and Prose of Izaak Walton. Author of the Complete Angler. With Notes and a Preface … Octavo. Near contemporary panelled calf, gilt, by Bedford, red morocco label, all edges gilt, inner gilt dentelles edged with a dog-tooth roll, marbled endpapers. Engraved head- and tail-pieces throughout. A little rubbed, joints just starting, but overall very good. First edition of this "an agreeable confection of biographical and bibliographical gossip" compiled by the somewhat eccentric Shepherd; "a heavy drinker who lived for many years at the Bald-faced Stag, an inn in Putney. A vivid impression of him is given by W. Partington, who described him as: a tall angular man, often shabbily dressed, with shoulders rounded from long nights of poring over books. He was remarkable for the possession of a most beautiful voice and gentle manners. One of his idiosyncrasies was his persistence in walking always in the middle of the street—in defiance of the shouting and gesticulating jehus of London's cabs" (ODNB) "Few men who have written books have been able to win so large a share of the personal affection of their readers as honest Izaak Walton has done, and few books are laid down with so genuine a feeling of regret as the Complete Angler …the reader regrets Walton should have left so little behind him … but now we are able to present those who love his memory with a collection of fugitive pieces in verse and prose …" (Preface). Crested "signature" bookplate of John Ecroyd to the front pastedown.

        Règlement de Navigation dans le Canal Maritime de Suez. Regulations for the Navigation of the Suez Maritime Canal

      Port Saïd: Suez Maritime Canal Universal Company. Working Department,, 1878. Quarto (305 × 233 mm). 16-pages, bi-lingual text in double column, sewn as issued. A couple of minor inked corrections to the text in a contemporary hand. 3 pages of signal flags, some hand-coloured. Somewhat browned and becoming fragile, beginning to separate at the spine, and with some edge-splits, but fundamentally sound. First thus, regulations first published on the opening of the canal in 1869. Decidedly uncommon, OCLC locates just two copies of the first edition, and one each for 1880, 1899, and 1907, all of them published in Paris, rather than Port Saïd as is the case with the present, otherwise untraced, issue. The Bibliothèque Nationale, perhaps slightly oddly, holding just that for 1899. This version includes an "Extract from the Final Report … of the International Tonnage Committee" held in Constantinople in 1873 which provided the basis for future charges levied on ships passing through the canal. Highly interesting, unusual and uncommon.

Aug. 9/78 issue: On the cover of this issue is a long story about "Our New Governor-General" who is Marquis of Lorne (whose portrait appears on the cover with Princess Louise, who also was moving to Canada). inside, there is an article about the Paris Exposition attendance.For the historian, this accumulation of writings and transcripts is a definite wealth of knowledge, for the agriculturist, here is what it was like almost 150 years ago on the farm. For the lover of old advertisements and illustrations of primitive machinery and olden days technology, a unique find and in beautiful presentation with the new covers on both volumes.

      Amsterdam. Frederik Muller 1878 - Small quarto; printed on thick paper; partly in facsimile, with sections in differing sizes, with three folding maps; externally a bit rubbed and marked, otherwise a fine uncut copy in the original plain boards and printed wrappers. Very scarce in this condition: printed in only a small number, under the auspices of the influential Amsterdam publisher and map expert Frederik Muller, with a good introduction by S. Muller.The book gives in beautifully-printed facsimile the very rare original Dutch edition of Gerritsz's collection of travel narratives, including the important printing of Quiros's Memorial to the King of Spain "concerning the population and discovery of the fourth part of the world called Australia, its great riches and fertility?". The three finely printed folding maps include the famous Gerritsz world map showing the discoveries of Quiros in the form of a very large Southern Continent below New Guinea and the Solomons.This facsimile of the Dutch edition is followed by a typeset version of the Latin edition of 1613 and the English translation typeset as a separate work, with its own title-page (Ferguson records this last part as a separate work as 9885b, recording the work described here as 9885a).

      Guatemala: Tip. de El Progreso / La Union, 1878-1887. First editions. Vol. 1, quarter red morocco; vols. 2-7 original blank paper wrappers as issued. Volumes 2-7 unopened (uncut) and untrimmed as sold hence some edges worn and soiled, scattered foxing, blank wrappers quite worn, torn, and soiled, some toning to half titles or titles, otherwise trimmed size is internally near fine; volume 1 extremities worn, small chip at head of spine and joint split at top. Booksellers stamp to title page of one volume. 8vo. Illus. This is the most famous 19th c. work on Central America and a very important regional history by an anti-clerical and liberal historian, Lorenzo Montufar y Rivera Maestre (1823-1898), who, as foreign minister of Costa Rica, helped organize the Central American defense against William Walker, and was frequently exiled for his opposition to the dictator Rafael Carrera. Bancroft and many other historians relied very heavily on Montufar's work and thus his subsequent influence on both English and Spanish language histories has been quite substantial.

        Catalogue of the American Library of the Late Mr. George Brinley, of Hartford, Conn

      Hartford, Conn.: Press of the Case, Lockwood & Brainard Company [for Geo. A. Leavitt & Co.],, 1878-93. Octavo (234 × 159 mm) Near contemporary red half morocco on marbled boards, title gilt to the spine, top edge gilt, the others uncut, wraps to all but the first part and the index bound in. A little rubbed at the extremities, spine creased, marginally browned as often, but sound, very good. First editions. Complete set of the catalogues, including cumulative alphabetical index, for the first great sale of Americana, this copy with virtually all of the prices realised neatly inked in margins. Brinley had begun his serious collecting in 1845 with the purchase of Samuel G. Drake's Indian collection of over 1,500 lots, which was to have been sold at auction, but was instead he bought privately, and sold on the duplicates in Bangs's New York rooms in 1852. The sale, which followed Brinley's death in 1875 copmprised nearly 9,500 lots and netted over $125,000. In his study of American Book Collectors and Collecting, Carl L. Cannon credits Brinley as "the first of the great collectors to see that a book about Oregon was as true a piece of Americana as a Columbus letter, and that an American imprint has special interest for an American collector. He broadened the field of collecting by despising nothing." Painstakingly compiled by James Hammond Trumbull, Secretary of the State of Connecticut, and president of the Connecticut Historical Society, these catalogues retain practical reference value alongside their historical interest. Bookplate of the book dealer Wallace Fay Tenney, formerly of Goodspeed's religious department, with his Brattle Street, Boston, address.

        Indicator Map of London with the Recent Improvements

      London: C. Smith & Son, 1878. Map. Lithograph with hand coloring. Backed on linen. Image measures 20 x 29.5". This folding street map of London was designed for travelers in the city who ended to find their way around. It covers the area between Paddington Cemetery, Parsons Green, Hackney Marsh, and Deptford and Hatcham. Within these boundaries is a wealth of detail describing the city's streets, landmarks, parks, rail lines, and waterways. Orange highlights the main roads, while red is used for rail terminals, green for parks, and yellow for cemeteries. Blue designates the Highbury district as well as the Thames, which snakes along the lower portion of the map. Rulers around the borders of the map divide the region into quarter mile squares that allow for the measuring of distances with the cloth folding tape ruler attached to the accompanying boards.The map is attached to these original boards, the cover bearing the title Indicator Map of London and Visitors Guide. The guide is included in a booklet that accompanies the map and decodes the indicative numbers and letters. The map has overall discoloration but is in otherwise excellent condition. Charles Smith (1768-1854) was 19th century British publisher of maps, atlases, and charts, mostly of his native England and London. Smith was appointed mapseller to the Prince of Wales in 1809. In 826, he began working with his son, who continued to publish maps and introduced the style of tape indicator map demonstrated here. This map of London is a lovely example of his work.

        On the Equilibrium of Heterogeneous Substances. Abstract by the author.New Haven: J. D. & E. S. Dana, 1878.

      First edition of Gibbs' abstract of his great work on chemical thermodynamics. "A foundation treatise on physical chemistry, the interpretation of chemical processes by application of thermodynamics and mathematics" (Grolier/Horblit 40). "In this famous essay Gibbs showed by the use of mathematical processes how thermodynamics may be used in the interpretation of chemical processes, and gave the first demonstration of the Phase Rule" (Evans 60). It was through this version, published in the widely circulated <i>American Journal of Science</i>, that the majority of scientists became aware of Gibbs' work. "[Gibbs'] early papers, as well as Gibbs's major memoir on thermodynamics that soon followed them, appeared in the <i>Transactions of the Connecticut Academy of Arts and Sciences</i>, a new and relatively obscure journal whose nonlocal circulation consisted largely of exchanges with other learned societies, including some 140 outside the United States. Gibbs did not count on finding his potential readers among those who checked the contents of the <i>Transactions</i>" (DSB). The original paper in the <i>Transactions</i> is notably rare (and correspondingly expensive).<br/><br/> "Gibbs, the greatest American mathematical physicist, introduced in ['On the Equilibrium of Heterogeneous Substances'] the 'phase rule' to solve the intricate problem of the equilibrium of such mixtures as chemical solutions and metal alloys. Largely ignored both in America and abroad for more than ten years after this initial appearance, its impact upon modern industrial technology was enormous, leading directly to the modern manufacture of plastics, drugs, dyes and organic solvents. His mathematical equations relieved scientists of immeasurable numbers of experiments in order to ascertain the precise conditions for successful chemical processes" (Norman 889). <br/><br/> "In the abstract of his memoir that Gibbs published in the American Journal of Science in 1878, he began by stating the simple but profound idea underlying his work: "It is an inference naturally suggested by the general increase of entropy which accompanies the changes occurring in any isolated material system that when the entropy of the system has reached a maximum, the system will be in a state of equilibrium. Although this principle has by no means escaped the attention of physicists, its importance does not appear to have been duly appreciated. Little has been done to develop the principle as a foundation for the general theory of thermodynamic equilibrium" [p. 441 of the Abstract]. <br/><br/> "Gibbs formulated the criterion for thermodynamic equilibrium in two alternative and equivalent ways. "For the equilibrium of any isolated system it is necessary and sufficient that in all possible variations of the state of the system which do not alter its energy [entropy], the variation of its entropy [energy] shall either vanish or be negative [positive]" [p. 441 of the Abstract]. The bracketed form immediately indicates that thermodynamic equilibrium is a natural generalization of mechanical equilibrium, both being characterized by minimum energy under appropriate conditions. The consequences of this criterion could then be worked out as soon as the energy of the system was expressed in terms of the proper variables. Gibbs's first and probably most significant application of this approach was to the problem of chemical equilibrium. The result of his work was described by Wilhelm Ostwald as determining the form and content of chemistry for a century to come, and by Henri Le Chatelier as comparable in its importance for chemistry with that of Antoine Lavoisier" (DSB). <br/><br/> Wheeler, <i>Josiah Willard Gibbs, the history of a great mind</i>, 1952.. 8vo (233 x 148 mm), pp. 417-496, viii, 4, with seven plates.
