        Two important articles on coral from the Monatsbericht der Königlichen Preussischen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin

      Akademie der Wissenschaften, Berlin 1878 - Thick octavo, twelve issues bound together, 32 plates in total (some folding, one hand-coloured, two coloured); very good, rubbed blue paper boards, neat library stamps with cancel for Altenburg. Full run of the monthly bulletins of the Prussian Akademie der Wissenschaften in Berlin for 1878, including two long and important essays on the corals of Pacific, Indian and Australian waters collected during the voyage of SMS Gazelle. The Gazelle was a Prussian corvette sent on three different voyages of scientific exploration, including the important circumnavigation of 1872-1874, which called at the West Indies, Cape of Good Hope, spent some time in Australian waters, before sailing through the Pacific to Japan, China, California and South America, before returning to Kiel. Although not particularly well-known, this was an important scientific voyage, and the participants returned to Europe with many specimens. As the articles present here confirm, one of the great pursuits of the expedition was to study corals and other marine structures, which are discussed in two long essays by Thomas Studer and H.W. Peters, the 'Zweite Abtheilung Anthozoa polyactinia, welche während der Reise S.M.S. Gazelle um die Erde gesammelt wurden' (pp. 524-550), and the 'Übersicht der Anthozoa Alcyonaria, welche während der Reise S.M.S. um die Erde gesammelt wurden' (pp. 632-688). The two articles include ten good plates (one folding, two coloured). The Academy was founded in 1700 but was revolutionised by Frederick the Great, who helped establish it as one of the great centres for scientific research. The breadth of their interests can be seen in the diversity of articles published here, on topics such as spiders collected in Mozambique, insects from East Africa, ancient coins, spectrum analysis, and paleontology. An interesting note records the election of Charles Darwin and Richard Owen to the Akademie in December 1878. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Op. 73]. Zweite Symphonie (D dur) für Grosses Orchester. Partitur. [Full score]

      N. Simrock [PN 8028], Berlin 1878 - First Edition. McCorkle p. 311. Hofmann p. 156-157. Fuld p. 553. Sonneck Orchestral Music p. 55."The Second Symphony in D op.73, composed less than a year after the completion of the First, is often described as its sunny counterpart. The work indeed radiates a warmth and tunefulness absent in parts of the earlier work. But as Brahms himself acknowledged, the Second Symphony also has a ‘melancholy’ side. The lyrical opening theme of the first movement unravels almost at once into a dark passage for timpani and trombones. The voice of melodic continuity is reasserted often in this movement, however, first by the violin melody that follows the unravelling and again by the second group and the large coda. The pensive slow movement, in B major and in a modified sonata form, is dominated by a motivically rich, metrically ambiguous main theme remarkable for its combination of tunefulness and developing variation."The second half of the symphony distinctly brightens in mood, although it too contains sombre moments – often involving the trombones – that evoke the expressive world of the first two movements. The Allegretto recasts the traditional scherzo–trio alternation into a rondo-like structure that is one of Brahms's most original creations. Although the finale ends the symphony in a jubilant blaze of D major, it glances back at the mood of the earlier movements, especially in the haunting passage at the end of the development section (whose chains of descending 4ths Mahler recalled in his First Symphony) and in the syncopated episode for brass in the coda." George S. Bozarth and Walter Frisch in Grove online Folio. Half dark red leather with marbled boards, titling gilt to spine. 1f. (title), 3-71 printed music, [i] (blank) pp. Engraved.

        Wiener Werkstätten Postkarte No. 252.

      0, [Wien, - [Wien, o. J.] OPostkarte [14 x 9 cm]. Monogrammiert "COC". - Die Karte ist nicht gelaufen, etw. angestaubt, kl. Knickspur, leichte Gbrsp. - Czeschka (1878 - 1960) gilt als einer der wichtigsten Gestalter der Wiener Werkstätte. Nach dem Studium an der Akademie der bildenden Künste in Wien lehrte Czeschka in intensiver Zusammenarbeit mit Kolo Moser und Josef Hoffmann an der Wiener Werkstätte und ging 1908 an die Hamburger Kunstgewerbeschule. Sein Schaffen war von zentraler Inspirationskraft auch für das 1905 entstanden Gesamtkunstwerk der Wiener Werkstätte, das Palais Stoclet in Brüssel, hier war Czeschka verantwortlich u. a. für die Gestaltung des Musiksaals, ein Unterfangen das auch als selbstreflexiv für seine eigene Kunstauffassung betrachtet werden muss. In seiner Formensprache ist Czeschka verwandt zu Klimt, aber Czeschkas Bildsprache ist auf einem flächigeren und abstrakteren Weg. Sein Schüler Kokoschka hat immer wieder seine Bewunderung für seinen Lehrer artikuliert und auch seine eigene Formensprache wesentlich als von Czeschka beeinflusst betrachtet.Czeschkas Werk ist umfangreich: er entwarf unter anderem Graphiken, Holzschnitte, Glasfenster, Kalender, Theaterausstattungen für Max Reinhardt, buchkünstlerische Arbeiten, Schmuck, Postkarten und Möbel. Besonders bekannt sind seine Buchausstattungen, die Illustrationen von 1908 zu ?Die Nibelungen" in der Jugendbuchreihe des Gerlach & Wiedling Verlages gelten als sein bekanntestes Werk. Schließlich sollte auch nicht vergessen werden, daß Czeschka auch die bis heute verwendete Kopfzeile der Wochenzeitschrift "Die Zeit" gestaltet hat. (Zitat) Deutsch [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Photometric Researches. Made in the Years 1872-1875.

      Wilhelm Engelmann, Leipzig 1878 - 1 blank leaf + half title = Annals of the Astronomical Observatory of Harvard College, Vol. IX + TP + [V]-VI = Preface + [1]-181 + small Erratum leaf [tipped in] + 4 plates [bound with] TP = Annals of the Astronomical Observatory of Harvard College, Vol. X, John Wilson and Son, Cambridge, 1877+ [iii] = Preface + [v]-vi = Preface of the Editor + [vii]-viii = Table of Contents + [ix]-lxxxix = Introduction + [1]-239 + 4 plates + 1 blank leaf; Quarto sized sheets (9¼" x 11¾"). First Edition. The very scarce first edition of the only complete book by Peirce that was published in his lifetime. Almost all the prolific writings of the founder of pragmatism - considered by many to be the greatest philosopher America has produced - survived only in the form of journal articles, reviews, and uncompleted manuscripts, until his posthumous editors began to bring out his massive Collected Papers in the 1930s. Besides his famous contributions to logic, metaphysics, and philosophy of mind, Peirce did highly original work in experimental science, including the application of his new 'photometric' technique (using light waves to measure distance) in the first attempt to determine the shape and extent of the Milky Way from the brightness of the stars.Photometric Researches summarizes important astronomical studies that Peirce conducted at Harvard College Observatory, while working as an Assistant in the United States Coastal and Geodetic Survey. It was published here in 1878 as Volume IX of The Annals of the Astronomical Observatory of Harvard College.By 1875, the greater part of the photometric researches was completed, but he wanted still to make a more thorough study of earlier star catalogues. During his second Coast Survey assignment in Europe (1875-76), he examined medieval and renaissance manuscripts of Ptolemy's star catalogue in several libraries. He also made inquiries as to the methods used in the preparation of the most recent star catalogue, the Durchmusterung of Argelander and Schönfeld at the Bonn Observatory. Peirce's book, Photometric Researches (1878), included his own edition of Ptolemy's catalogue, as well as a long letter from Schönfeld concerning the methods of the Durchmusterung (Peirce Edition Project: Introduction to Volume 3 of The Writings of Charles S. Peirce)To the best of our knowledge, this is only the second copy to have appeared on the market in the past twenty years. Bowdoin College Library" ticket pasted to the inside of the front cover. Otherwise, a really lovely copy of this extremely scarce work by C. S. Peirce. PHOTOS AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Gesammelte Schriften, 4 Bände in 5 Bänden. Herausgegeben von Henrik Karge.

      Olms Verlag, -1884. Reprint: Hildesheim 2008-2014. 1878 - XIV/2474 S. HISTORIA SCIENTIARUM Gottfried Semper (1803–1879) ist der bedeutendste deutsche Architekt des 19. Jahrhunderts neben Karl Friedrich Schinkel, dessen romantischen Klassizismus er durch eine nüchterne Bauweise unter Bevorzugung des italienischen Renaissancestils ablöste. Gegensätze wie jene zwischen Grundform und Kunstform oder Materialechtheit und Ornament wurden durch Sempers hohes Künstlertum zu einer künstlerischen Einheit geführt. Seine praktische Arbeit band Semper zeitlebens in einen theoretisch fundierten Kontext ein. Berühmt wurden seine Forschungen zur Polychromie der antiken Architektur und Plastik, die er mit der Konzeption einer Einheit der Künste verband. Sein Buch „Wissenschaft, Industrie und Kunst" reflektierte die Einsichten, die die Weltausstellung von 1851 gebracht hatte, als Vorgriffe auf eine zukünftige Kunst. „Die vier Elemente der Architektur" von 1850 ist wichtiges Zeugnis seiner geistigen Distanz zum Historismus. Wie seine Bauten reflektierten seine wirkungsmächtigen Schriften, in denen er sich oft polemisch mit künstlerischen Tendenzen seiner Zeit auseinandersetzte, die Bedingungen ästhetischer Wahrnehmung. Nicht zufällig bezog sich die niederländische Bewegung "de Stijl" später direkt auf Sempers Hauptwerk "Der Stil in den technischen und tektonischen Künsten". Als einer von wenigen Architekten hat Gottfried Semper ein wissenschaftliches Œuvre von hohem Rang hervorgebracht. Sein architektonisches Werk war von europäischer Bedeutung. Geboren in Hamburg und ausgebildet in Paris, fand Semper nach einer ausgedehnten Studienreise durch Italien und Griechenland 1834 eine einflussreiche Position als Professor für Baukunst in Dresden, wo er seine berühmtesten Bauten errichtet hat: das erste und das zweite Hoftheater, die Gemäldegalerie, die Villa Rosa. Auf die gescheiterte Revolution von 1849 folgten schwierige Jahre im Londoner Exil, bevor Semper als Professor in Zürich und als Entwerfer des Wiener Kaiserforums den Zenit seiner internationalen Anerkennung erreichte. Ausgehend von seiner Dresdner Akademielehre verfolgte Semper das Ziel, die vielfältigen Erscheinungsformen der Architektur auf wenige Urtypen zurückzuführen, um die Genese der Baukunst mit naturwissenschaftlicher Exaktheit zu erfassen. Die in seinem monumentalen zweibändigen Werk Der Stil in den technischen und tektonischen Künsten (1860-1863) entwickelte „Bekleidungstheorie" hat bis heute ihre – teils inspirierende, teils kontroverse – Wirkung auf architektonische Konzeptionen nicht eingebüßt. Sempers literarisches Œuvre steht wie kaum ein zweites für die wissenschaftliche Interdisziplinarität des 19. Jahrhunderts. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Edited by John Foster Kirk. Featuring a 'facsimilie of two signatures of Francisco Pizarro'. With a prize presentation label reading: 'Librarian's Prize awarded to C. F. Abbott, Bruce Castle, July 1883'. William Hickling Prescott (May 4 1796 January 29 1859) was an American historian and Hispanist, considered to have been the first American scientific historian.

His works on the subject, The History of the Reign of Ferdinand and Isabella the Catholic (1837), The History of the Conquest of Mexico (1843), A History of the Conquest of Peru (1847) and the unfinished History of the Reign of Phillip II (18561858) have become classic works in the field, and have had a huge impact on the study of both Spain and Mesoamerica.

A very attractive set. Taken in the mass, these volumes contain the most valuable contributions to art-literature the language can show… they contain worlds of thought, imagination, and knowledge such as no other art-writer can educe… It is impossible but that Art should be the better for them" (Allibone, 1895). "Clouds, mountains, landscapes, towers, churches, trees, flowers and herbs were drawn with wonderful precision, minuteness of detail and delicacy of hand, solely to recall some specific aspect of nature or art, of which he wished to retain a record. In his gift for recording the most subtle characters of architectural carvings and details, Ruskin has hardly been surpassed by the most distinguished painters" (NNDB).

        Uber Spinalganglien und Ruckenmark des Petromyzon. Offprint .

      Vienna 1878 - Freud, Sigmund (1856-1939). Uber Spinalganglien und Ruckenmark des Petromyzon. Offprint from Sitzb. der k. Akad. d. Wissenschaften, 3 Abth., 78 (1878). [Vienna: K.k. Hof- und Staatsdruckerei, 1878.] 87 [1]pp. 4 folded lithographed plates by F. Schima after Freud. 244 x 156 mm. (uncut & unopened). Original brown printed wrappers, tears along spine folds, slightly chipped at extremities. Slight foxing but fine. First Separate Edition. Freud's third paper published as a medical student continued his research on the large Reissner cells in the spinal cord of the fish Petromyzon, which he had undertaken at the direction of the eminent physiologist Ernst Brucke, under whom he was studying. Freud determined these cells to be "nothing else than spinal ganglion cells which, in these low vertebrates. . . remain within the spinal cord." Freud was aided in this research by his improved methods of tissue preparation: "By the use of a gold maceration technique it was possible to make a complete survey of the spinal ganglia of Petromyzon" (Freud, Standard Edition III, p. 229). Freud made a major contribution to evolutionary biology by showing that the spinal ganglion cells of Petromyzon, which "exhibit every transition between bipolarity and unipolarity" (ibid.), represent a transition between the bipolar cells of lower and the unipolar cells of higher vertebrates. He also, in these early researches, took some first steps toward the theory of the neuron, as noted by Freud's biographer Peter Gay:"Some of Freud's earliest published papers, written between 1877 and 1883, detail findings that are far from trivial. They substantiate evolutionary processes revealed in the nervous structures of the fish he was examining under his microscope. What is more, it becomes clear in retrospect that these papers form the first link in the chain of ideas leading to the draft of a scientific psychology he would attempt in 1895. Freud was working toward a theory specifying the ways that nerve cells and nerve fibrils function as a unit. But he moved on to other investigations, and when, in 1891, H. W. G. Waldeyer published his epoch-making monograph on the "neuron" theory, Freud's pioneering research was ignored. "It was not the only time," Ernest Jones has noted, "that Freud narrowly missed world fame in early life through not daring to pursue his thoughts to their logical-and not far off-conclusion" (Gay, Freud: A Life for our Time, p. 36).Grinstein 34.

      London & Paris Cassell Petter and Galpin() 1878 - EA. 22 x 14 cm. XV, 423 P. Original Cloth with gilt back. Used, blotchy and partly lightly torn. Preface: After half a century of existence, the New Greece created by England, France, and Russia, reckoning up her achievemenst and acquisitions, can find little further cause for gratitutde to her earlier patrons. She may boast of a considerable development, political as well as material; but save the annexation of the Ionian Islands, she has received no extension, and no great encouragement, from any of the European Powers. She has been left very much to her own devices; but she has been speddily snubbed whenever these devices tended towards the completion of the work of 1830. Europe has borne hardly upon New Greece; and England most hardly of all. .My object in the following pages is to bring together and pass under review the many reasons which have been, or may be, urged on behalf of the Hellenic claims. The Greek Question is one of the most important of those which now agitate the public mind. Instead of settling it, the Congress of Berlin has given it increased urgency; and the occasion seemsa to justify a re-statement of the problem, etc.; - Contents: Part I. Introductory Chapter. Greece and the Congress.; Chapter I. The General Character and Resources of Greece./ Chapter II. Greek Education and Genius./ Chapter III. Literature and Folk-Lore./ Chapter IV.
