        Autograph Letter Signed 'Filopanti' to Rinaldo ANDREINI, (Giuseppe, 1812-1894, 'Quirico Filopanti')

      1879 - (1818-1890, Italian Surgeon and Patriot), in Italian with translation, thanking him "for your invitation to the Congress of the League for Teaching, but I will only be able to take part with my good wishes", his views "on cosmology and anthropology" will "probably not coincide with yours", referring him to "a general idea in the preface to my work 'The Universe'", (Bologna, 3 vols, 1871-1873), "yours will perhaps be inspired, I fear, by the ultra-materialist trends so common among your medical colleagues, who believe that nothing exists other than what they can cut with their scalpel. And since you never have anything under your eyes except the part that is dead, diseased or monstrous in nature, on the whole you become insensitive to the marvellous harmony and solidarity of all the parts of the infinite Universe". However, for Andreini's next lectures on Anthropology, he can say "that I believe that the Sun and all his planets, including our own, were formed by the flowing together of elements dispersed from previously existing worlds . There exists, in my view, an infinite variety of plants and animals in infinite space, but there are intrinsic reasons why certain given organic forms are repeated more than others . Everything that is now on earth has come, in the course of centuries, from the heavens, not omitting the germs of plants and animals", he adopts "Darwin's theory only half way . in the previous worlds the most advanced species" may have arisen "by continual gradations from inferior species, but . Darwin's law has not been verified on our earth", explaining that "in another world, now destroyed, and the parent or ancestor of this", man may have "descended from monkey, but present man does not derive from present monkey", otherwise "there would have remained . numerous traces of it", he ends by saying "It consoles me to see the French Republic consolidating, even though at the moment she is in bad hands. With heartfelt greetings", ( 4 sides 8vo.), with, in Andreini's hand, his French translation of the letter, (4 sides 8vo.), followed by his short memoir of Barilli, signed and dated 1879, (3 sides 8vo.), together 11 sides 8vo., Cento (15 miles north of Bologna) and no place, 12th August 1872 - (Translation) Cento, 12th August 1872 Dear Andreini, Thank you for your invitation to the Congress of the League for Teaching, but I will only be able to take part with my good wishes. I regret too not having the time to sum up for you my particular views on cosmology and anthropology. Probably they will not coincide with yours, for mine are consonant with those of which I have given a general idea in the preface to my work "The Universe"; yours will perhaps be inspired, I fear, by the ultra-materialist trends so common among your medical colleagues, who believe that nothing exists other than what they can cut with their scalpel. And since you never have anything under your eyes except the part that is dead, diseased or monstrous in nature, on the whole you become insensitive to the marvellous harmony and solidarity of all the parts of the infinite Universe. All the same, if in your next lectures (on Anthropology) you wish to do me the honour of briefly quoting the opinions I have expressed in my addresses [Andreini adds '(in the open air)'] at Milan, Turin, Florence and Venice, and which will be developed more fully in the latest parts of The Universe, you can say that I believe that the Sun and all his planets, including our own, were formed by the flowing together of elements dispersed from previously existing worlds, among the innumerable worlds which compose the eternal and immense Universe. There exists, in my view, an infinite variety of plants and animals in infinite space, but there are intrinsic reasons why certain given organic forms are repeated more than others in the innumerable worlds, and among these last, the fundamental forms of our plants and our animals, including man. Everything that is now on earth has com [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Tramp Abroad (Salesman's Dummy)

      1879. TWAIN, Mark. A Tramp Abroad [Salesman’s Dummy]. Hartford, Connecticut: American Publishing Company, 1879. Slim octavo, original gilt- and blind-stamped brown cloth. $4200.Original salesman’s dummy for A Tramp Abroad, with engraved frontispiece portrait, select illustrations and excerpts, and samples of the gilt-decorated cloth spine and morocco swatch affixed to front pastedown, and a sample of publisher’s calf affixed to rear pastedown.In A Tramp Abroad, “besides his accounts of Germany, Switzerland, France and Italy, Twain includes local folklore (some of which he made up) and slips in several sketches that have little or nothing to do with Europe, including one of his most famous comic tales, ‘Jim Baker’s Bluejay Yarn” (MacDonnell, 42). Twain called the work “a gossipy volume… written by one loafer for a brother loafer to read” (LeMaster & Wilson, 743). Salesman’s dummies (also called salesman’s samples or prospectuses) were meant to be taken door-to-door to show potential subscribers. The front cover of the dummy is identical to the published book, while the text consists of several sections of the book (primarily those pages with some of the book’s many illustrations). The book was offered in full cloth with a sprinkled edge or gilt edge, in a library-style leather binding, or in half morocco or half calf. At the rear of the volume is a page of reviews, a full-page advertisement, ten leaves of ruled paper intended to be filled with orders (with the headings: “Subscribers’ Names,” “Residences,” and “Style of Binding”), and the publisher’s two-page current “Catalogue of Books.” The frontispiece portrait is the preferred first state (with the underlying lines in the left hand lapel vertical rather than slanted), and the wood-engraving of Moses is also the first state (bearing the caption “Moses,” rather than “Titian’s Moses”). See BAL 3386. Johnson, 35. McBride, 60. Text fine, with only a few marks of handling, light rubbing to extremities of original cloth. A near-fine copy.

Original printed wrappers bound in. Fine cherry-colour full morocco binding by Canape.R.D dated 1926, spine with 5 raised bands gilt-lettered in first compartment, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt, morocco turn-ins with gilt-ruled borders. Provenance: Victor Hugo. Carte de visite by Louis Pasteur and small portrait photograph sticked to second blank leaf. ----Norman 1660; Cushing P142; Heirs of Hippocrates 1900; Osler 1552. - FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY, INSCRIBED BY PASTEUR on the half-title: "A monsieur Victor Hugo, de l'Academie francaise, Hommage de profond respect, L. Pasteur." A rare instance, linking two of the greatest French men of the 19th century: one of the founders of modern medicine, Louis Pasteur, and the literary giant Victor Hugo, author of Les misérables or Hunchback of Notre-Dame. Louis Pasteur arguably was a great admirer of Victor Hugo. In a manuscript dated February 7, 1885, just a few months before the death of the great poet, he writes: "L'enfant sublime, comme l'a nomme Chateaubriand, a merite d'etre appele le sublime vieillard. Devant cette glorieuse longevite, la France donne un beau spectacle. Son acclamation est un cri de patriotisme." Whereas Victor Hugo was elected a member of the Academie francaise on January 7, 1841 at the age of just 39, Pasteur became a member of this academy rather late, on December 8, 1881, a few days before his 60th birthday. The academy was an exclusive society made up of 40 of France's most important people. We know of at least one other copy of this book containing a dedication by Pasteur to a member of the Academie, Émile Littré, with an almost identical wording: "A monsieur Littre, de l'Academie francaise, Hommage de profond respect, L. Pasteur." Could it be possible that Pasteur presented copies of his book to members of the Academie to gain support for his election campaign? Regarding the book itself, Pierre Bertholet, an opponent of Pasteur's controversial theory of fermentation, published a posthumous and unauthorized version of some notes by Claude Bernard, a supporter of Pasteur's, which claimed to have isolated a soluble chemical produced by yeast that caused fermentation, in contrast to Pasteur's theory. Pasteur's bitter reply strengthened his conviction that fermentation was life without air, a belief he held until Eduard Buchner isolated a soluble alcoholic ferment in 1897. Near Fine.

Bon exemplaire. Edition originale rare complète, les deux volumes ayant parus à 15 ans d'intervalle, et surtout avec l'atlas qui manque souvent. Fr. E. Mallard est le continuateur avec Auguste Bravais des travaux de René Just Haüy et J. B. Romé de L'Isle. Titulaire de la chaire de minéralogie de l'École nationale supérieure des mines, il développa une théorie des groupements cristallins et des corps pseudo-symétriques, dans la lignée des travaux de Bravais. On lui doit aussi l'invention avec Michel-Lévy du microscope polarisant. Son nom fut donné à la "mallardite", un sulfate hydraté de manganèse. ¶ DSB IX. p.58 "A key figure in the French school of crystallography and a bridge from Bravais to Friedel, Mallard was described as having ... definitely displaced the center of gravity of crystallography that, thereafter, could not be cultivated as a descriptive science, but was elevated to the rank of rational science"

        The Old Fashioned Mother Goose Melodies Complete with Magic Colored Pictures

      NY: G.W. Carleton, 1879. Sheppard, William Ludwell. Octavo. 16ff. Features sixteen color lift-the-flap illustrations (including the title page) in which the closed image illustrates the beginning of a verse and the open image depicts its conclusion. With numerous classic rhymes by Mother Goose, including the full versions of Old Mother Hubbard, and a rather unusual retelling of "Ten Little Indians," which adds several US-specific regional references ("Six Nantucket whalers" and "Five Nevada miners"), as well as two stereotypical and derogatory views of African-American youth ("Four naughty colored boys" robbing an apple tree and "Two little Nigs in Florida"). The illustrations are signed "WLS" in the plates, leading to the conclusion that they are by William Ludwell Sheppard, a southern illustrator whose drawings of African Americans are noted by Hamilton as having "a sympathetic truthfulness to nature born perhaps of the artist's Southern origin." The construction of this book makes the text block bulk only half the length of the boards, resulting in structural issues when combined with youthful use. This copy is, perhaps, the closest to new condition as one could hope for-the violet publisher's cloth, decorated in gilt and black, is unfaded and nearly unworn. Aside from a few very short marginal tears where the thin part of the text block meets the bulk in the middle, the book is internally fresh and bright.

        Australian Steam Ship "Norfolk"... J. Pyne O'Callaghan, Commander.

      London: published by John Day, October, 1879. Hand-coloured lithograph measuring 470 x 295mm. A handsome hand-coloured lithograph of Australian passenger steam ship Norfolk by eminent marine artist and lithographer Thomas Goldsworth Dutton. The Norfolk made several passages to Australia, running from Sydney and London between 1879 and 1882 - she was an impressive steamer, being the second largest non-naval vessel constructed on the Thames to that date.An article in the Melbourne Argus (6 November 1879) describes her prodigious size, being 'constructed on the girder principle, and of enormous strength having floors of considerable depth and thickness. Her masts are of iron in one length with yards of steel...' The Norfolk was capable of carrying 500 passengers in ample and well ventilated cabins in addition to 2,000 tons of freight and 1,300 tons of coal. Yet her Australian commission was to be relatively short lived. In 1882 Royal Mail Steam Packet Co purchased the Norfolk and renamed her La Plata, with her maiden South American voyage commencing in October of 1882.Dutton was a leading marine artist of his era. His printmaking is amply represented in the catalogue Macpherson collection of prints and drawings held at the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich: 'his ship portraits were all-pervading in the nineteenth century. Fighting ships, merchant sailing ships and yachts all came alike to him. He died about 1882 and with him died maritime prints as we know them.'A copy of this lithograph is known in the Nan Kivell collection of the National Library. Closed tear affects lower blank margin, very good condition, mounted.

        La pitié suprême

      1879. Michel Lévy, Paris 1879, 15,5x23,5cm, relié. - Michel Lévy, Paris 1879, 15,5x23,5cm, relié. - Edizione originale. Binding mezzo vecchio dolore rosso con alcuni restauri discreti, torna con cinque nervi, quando coda, piatti di carta al serbatoio, e contreplats pettinato guardie Foglio a righe, coperchi conservati, testa rossa, vincolante contemporaneo. Autografo Precious firmato da Victor Hugo Alphonse Daudet. Biblioteca Buffer di Madame Daudet sulla prima guardia. Victor Hugo è per Alphonse Daudet, come altri scrittori della sua generazione, il maestro indiscusso di arti Hall of Fame. La sua figura padre spruzza le opere di Daudet, comunemente chiamato accanto a quelli di Rousseau, Byron, Sabbia e Delacroix. Se durante l'infanzia e la giovinezza Daudet, Hugo, esiliato gigante sulla sua isola di Guernsey, rimane un ideale irraggiungibile, "quasi oltre l'umanità," Back in Francia gli permette di incontrarlo un giorno. Intorno al 1875, poco dopo la pubblicazione dei suoi primi lavori, Alphonse Daudet e Julia sono ben accolti in Hugo, che ora vive con Juliette Drouet. Essi hanno quindi diventano intimi della casa fino alla morte del poeta. Victor Hugo è coinvolto nella formazione del giovane Léon Daudet, il migliore amico nipote di Hugo, George e poi marito di Jeanne effimera. Nelle sue Memorie di un circolo letterario, Julia Daudet evoca l'amicizia di dieci anni con la "idolo di tutta la Francia poetica" "Vedo il grande fine Victor Hugo del suo tavolo; il vecchio maestro, un po 'isolato, un po' sordo, si siede con Dio silenzi, le assenze di un genio sull'orlo dell'immortalità. I capelli bianchi, testa di colore, e questo occhio vecchio leone che si sviluppa a fianco con potere ferocia; ascolta mio marito e Catullo Mendes tra i quali è la discussione molto vivace su giovani e celebrità conosciuto uomini e l'interesse per le donne. [...] Durante il dibattito siamo andati al salone, Victor Hugo sogno dal fuoco, e famosi, universale e semidio rimpiangere forse la sua giovinezza, mentre la signora Drouet dormendo tranquillamente. » L'amicizia tra l'ultimo grande scrittore romantico e uno dei maestri della scuola naturalista precoce riflette la nitidezza di Victor Hugo che, al culmine della sua fama, e mantiene una particolare attenzione specie per la letteratura a distanza e moderno lirismo di Hugo. Questa dedizione Hugo Daudet su una forza lavoro competente, con il Papa e religioni e religione, di "testamento filosofico" di Henri Guillemin, risuona simbolicamente in eredità da un devoto seguace della responsabilità politica e morale dello scrittore. Provenienza: Alphonse Daudet, vendite Sickles (1990, IV, n ° 1200) e Philippe Zoummeroff vendita (2 aprile 2001). Estratto regalo di un circolo letterario di Julia Daudet: "Come possiamo dimenticare che prima visita a casa, rue de Clichy, nel modesto appartamento in modo sproporzionato rispetto alla sua gloria, l'idea che avevamo della gloria che aveva riempito i palazzi: Si alza il sedile che occupava il fuoco di fronte di Madame Drouet, il suo vecchio amico, (...) Sono stupito la sua dimensione, ma ben presto, quando incontrerà me e parlare con me, mi avrebbe trovato molto grande, molto intimidatorio. E questo Mi sentivo così timida, ho sempre li provo davanti a Victor Hugo, il risultato di questa grande ammirazione, la rispetto come un dio assente, i miei genitori instillato in me il genio di un poeta. supererò mai quella voce tremante ogni volta rispondo sue gentili parole, e io dico stupire per quasi anni di sentire le donne, ha ammesso a lui, mantenere la loro interiore e la loro solita curiosità. Quella notte, quando lui mi aveva fatto molto confuso, la signora Drouet, ha detto con un incantevole grazia - Ecco l'angolo del vecchio e tu sei troppo giovane per noi. Ma Victor Hugo vi introdurrà alla figlia, la signora Lockroy; solo ha in piedi a questo. E stavo guidando sul lato opposto della stanza, moderatamente grande, però, ma che era come divisa in due da un tavolo sormontato da un elefante in bronzo, molto maestoso, giapponese o cinese, credo. E 'stato abbastanza per fare due piccoli gruppi ben distinti che comunicano facilmente, ma senza fondersi. Al momento del suo ritorno, Victor Hugo era wit abbagliante, molti ricordi e raccontata con una verve inesauribile quando la politica non è troppo invadendo il suo tavolo ospitale. E la grazia in casa, quali modi, quello che un bel sorriso nonno nei capelli ho visto poco per sbollentare la neve nobile 80 anni I poeti, tutti i poeti che partecipano a questa salone Rue de Clichy, poi l'hotel Avenue d'Eylau. Ma qui è stato il cambiamento di luogo? C'era come un passo indietro nella salute, e in uno spirito di buon vecchio. Eppure sempre amava intrattenere i suoi amici, e l'ospitalità di questa casa aperta non era uno dei suoi incanti anche perché, intorno al tavolo, impreziosito da un brano di due nipoti del Maestro, il ospiti cercavano la loro parola d'ordine negli occhi del padrone di casa, e qualche volta hanno trovato una vena di ricordi così vividi, così pittorescamente espresso, che è rimasto cieco tutta la sera. M mo Drouet lentamente invecchiare con lui, al riparo sotto due bande di neve, un'eleganza un po 'teatrale e caratteristico, fino a quando un male spietato scavato il suo volto così sottile, reso doloroso effigie ha dipinto Bastien Lepage, che doveva morire in preda alla stessa tortura. In tempi recenti, il Maestro sembrava dolorosamente, cene intime, che piatto vuoto, quella nobile volto devastato. - Mrs Drouet, non si mangia, si deve mangiare, avere coraggio. Eat! Stava morendo. Sapeva? Stava cercando di illudersi fini vecchio così duro e forte, e che ha visto questo compagno da 50 anni! Nella grande sala dove sembra bellissimo ritratto di Bonnat, il gesto paterno, dove il busto di David presiede immensamente; nel salone, decorato con questi arazzi multicolori strisce che sembrava teso a Dona Sol; nel giardino venire alla veranda per una rampa di scale due riapparire Leconte de Lisle, Meurice e Vacquerie, Paul de Saint-Victor, sorridenti Banville, Flaubert e Goncourt conversare insieme, Mallarmé, Leon Cladel, Francois Coppe, Catullo Mendes, Clovis Hugues, ombre in un Eden sbiadita; e Leon Glaize, Gustave Rivet, Pierre Elzéar, la piccola rosa signora Michelet offre una serata di festa, e ambasciatori, diplomatici, l'imperatore del Brasile; pittori, scultori, e molti politici che non ricordo il nome! Qui l'impressione immediata che ho disegnato una di quelle sere in cui abbiamo visitato, Alphonse Daudet e me, una serata nevoso, dove durante la corsa il nostro cavallo è caduto tre volte attraverso le Esplanade des Invalides: Vedo il grande fine Victor Hugo del suo tavolo; il vecchio maestro, un po 'isolato, un po' sordo, si siede con Dio silenzi, le assenze di un genio sull'orlo dell'immortalità. I capelli bianchi, testa di colore, e questo occhio vecchio leone che si sviluppa a fianco con ferocia del potere; ascolta mio marito e Catullo Mendes tra i quali è la discussione molto vivace su giovani e celebrità conosciuto uomini e l'interesse per le donne. Alphonse sostiene che in un salotto pieno di ogni sorta di talenti, di qualsiasi età, un giovane uomo, l'ignoto autore, il poeta si ignorati gli occhi femminili è bello. Catullo Mendes ha risposto che lo farà inizialmente inosservato, e che tutte le donne andranno in consapevolezza: questo sembra vero per me. Per fortuna le donne non hanno gli occhi del loro volto, ma quelli della mente e del cuore. Per l'intellettuale, la bellezza di un artista, un poeta non conta, è lo sguardo del pensatore, il volto tormentato di un uomo che vive i suoi sentimenti. Vanno al talento, il dolore passa, difficilmente pensando bellezza fisica. Ora si potrebbe rispondere che si tratta di una simpatia ambizioso che cercano autori famosi, ma l'altra sensazione, quella che avrebbe attirato a questo giovane allettante cui Alphonse parla, sembra meno irreprensibile. E rido di questa affermazione di due conversatori affascinanti, generare, noi analizzare. Ma a dire la donna è come dire l'uccello; ci sono tante specie e generi, gorgheggi e piumaggio sono così diversi! Durante il dibattito siamo andati al salone, Victor Hugo sogno dal fuoco, e famosi, universale e semidio rimpianto forse la sua giovinezza, mentre la signora Drouet dormendo tranquillamente. La sua bella capelli bianchi ombreggiando la testa bene, come due ali di una colomba, e nodi di corpetto dopo il suo dolce respiro, quasi rassegnato, vecchia donna addormentata. Fu subito dopo questo evento ha avuto luogo la grande manifestazione di scorrimento Paris Avenue d'Eylau, davanti alle finestre della piccola stanza che divenne mortuaria maggio 1885 pieno di rose e arredate in modo semplice, come i conti, museo Victor Hugo, un partecipato nell'ex appartamento del poeta, Place Royale. Anche se suggestiva, la vecchia casa della palude ", e quando si pensa che ci Victor Hugo scrisse quasi tutti i suoi drammi storici si immagina il poeta, l'apertura, le ore del mattino che erano a lui familiare, questo alto finestra su alberghi tutti uguali e stesso stile, intorno alla piazza, e ricordando tornei, duelli, passeggiate e agitazioni di diverse generazioni scomparve sotto l'ombra di queste antiche e solide arcate e non tenere traccia del fuggitivo dell'umanità. Avevamo ancora cena al Victor Hugo settimana prima della sua morte. Egli ci dice inserendo più pallido del solito, l'approccio inflesso: - Presto andare, mi sento; e poi contando sulla spalla di George: No 'che' tanto tempo fa, che sarei andato. Non ho mai dimenticato la messa a fuoco piuttosto solenne e come profetiche quelle parole, mi era impregnata di tristezza e inquietudine; Ho sentito la dispersione di questo centro unico e non poteva ri mai!

        1879 – 1881 ??. ?????????? ????? ????????? ?. ????????, ?. ??????? ? ?. ??????????. [Plan of the City of Tiflis compiled by the Engineers S. Umanskiy, A. Popov and P. Zamiatnin].

      - 1881 1879 - 42 sheets, including 34 larger and 8 smaller sheets (40 with contemporary hand colour; 2 – B&W); some light soiling. Contemporary calf over brown cloth, gilt lettering to upper cover; slightly rubbed, corners bumped. A large manuscript topographic map of the Georgian capital Tbilisi. The Caucasus Topographical Bureau was established in 1853 but the active mapping of the region started only after 1866 when Iyeronim Stebnitskiy (1832-1897) was appointed the head of the Bureau. Works in the region were first undertaken in the Northern Caucasus and progressed to the south. The efforts of the agency were interrupted by the Russo-Turkish War in 1877 – 1878, as most of the employees were relocated to the basin of the Black Sea charged with a task of researching the territories newly occupied by the Russian army. The plan offered here was produced following the end of the war when the Bureau was able to return to its routine work. It is drawn on 42 sheets in the scale of 1:2000 and shows the whole city of Tiflis centred on the Mt'k'vari River with all the topographic details, including the relief, streets and buildings. Sheets are numbered with corresponding rows and columns to be assembled into a single large wall map. This manuscript plan is almost identical to the "Plan of the City of Tiflis with Surroundings" published by Il'in in Saint-Petersburg in 1887 and was likely a basis for it. Russian manuscript plans of this scale and quality are very rare, especially in good condition and largely complete like here. Produced for the official use, the majority of them remained in the state archives and libraries. Istoricheskiy ocherk deyatelnosti korpusa voennykh topografov v [ ] v 1855 – 1880 gg. (Skt.

        ALS signed M.E. Lewes to Sir Michael Foster, from The Heights, Witley, Sep. 26, '79. 'I enter feelingly into your trouble...'

      1879 28 lines in purple ink on rectos only of single folded sheet, with mourning border on first page; one old fold. With stamped addressed envelope also with mourning border, torn when opened.The George Eliot Letters do not include any letters to Sir Michael Foster. Written on mourning paper after the death of her husband in November 1878, Eliot writes to Foster regarding the posthumous publication of the third series of George Henry Lewes' Problems of Life and Mind. Foster, a professor of Physiology at Cambridge, together with the Psychologist James Sully, edited Eliot's proofs of her partner's work, the first two parts of which had been published in 1874 and 1877. 'Today or tomorrow you will have received the last proof, which has come to me this morning... I am sending to the printer a short prefatory note of which I will ask him to forward you a proof if you think I have said anything remiss'. Eliot had written similarly to Sully on September 21st: 'You are almost at the end of your kind labours for me. I have five proofs by me awaiting your and Dr. Foster's notes... Do you object to my mentioning your name with Dr. Foster's in a brief prefatory note?' The volume was published in late 1879 and includes a brief acknowledgement of Foster and Sully's contribution. Eliot signs off her letter in humorous self-deprecation. 'As to being wearied of stupidity; I may vary the old saying & make it "He who hates stupidity hates mankind".'
