        Notes by a Naturalist on the "Challenger" being an Account of Various Observations made during the Voyage of H.M.S. "Challenger" Round the World, in the Years 1872-76

      London: Macmillan, 1879. First UK edition. Hardcover. Very good + condition. A fine description of zoology and botany, most in the Southern Hemisphere and Antarctic. Also visits Tristan Da Cunha, Kerguelen Land, the Falklands, Juan Fernandez, Hawaii, Tahiti, Fiji & Cape York, Queensland. Spence 820. The Challenger Expedition was a massive scientific undertaking sponsored by the Royal Society to discover "everything about the sea". She was the first steam-driven ship to enter the Antarctic Circle. The expedition founded the modern science of oceanography, taking a daily chain of magnetic observations round the world, established 362 observation stations. At most of these, the depth was sounded, the sea dredged and samples of the seabed, as well as water samples and temperatures at intermediate levels, were taken. Atmospheric and meteorological observations were made and the rate and direction of the current measured. Thousands of new species of marine life were discovered. The British Library records only the 1892 edition. 'Of all his writings, Moseley's Notes of a Naturalist on the Challenger, is the one that appeals to the widest circle of readers and approaches Darwin's Journal of the Cruise of the Beagle in interest and importance' [DNB]. The work is dedicated to Charles Darwin. 8vo, xvi, 620pp, 2 colored plates, color folding map of the world showing ocean soundings. Fine binding signed by Mudie, with his stamp.

        Doublets: a word-puzzle

      Macmillan and Co., London 1879 - Original red publisher's cloth paneled in blind, gilt title on upper cover, slight soiling. An excellent presentation copy inscribed in purple ink, "Mrs. Neate from the Author." Preserved in a modern burgundy cloth box with red morocco sides, gilt lettered. First edition, first issue of this most popular word puzzle, invented by Carroll, that became a parlor craze in its time. "The rules of the puzzle are simple enough. Two words are proposed, of the same length; and the Puzzle consists in linking these together by interposing other words, each of which shall differ from the next word in one letter only." Beginning as a series of single problems which appeared in Vanity Fair on March 29, 1879, these games were collected by Macmillan and published here for the first time in book form. There are thirteen puzzles dated between March 29 and June 21, 1879. The name "doublets" was adopted after a passage in Shakespeare's Macbeth.Dodgson (1832-98), lecturer in mathematics at Christ Church College from 1855 to 1881, purportedly invented the game for Julia and Ethel Margaret Arnold, two little girls who "found nothing to do." Sophia Neate (1832-1908) of Heatherside, Woking, took on the care of Sally Sinclair and her siblings, whom Dodgson liked very much, when their parents died. Neate was supported financially by Dodgson and the actor Lionel Brough. On first meeting Mrs. Neate on June 26, 1879, Dodgson wrote in his diary that he 'found her so interesting that I stayed 4 hours!" He occasionally visited her and noted the progress of the Sinclair children as they grew (see Cohen, The letters of Lewis Carroll, 1979, p. 334n).

        THE SEASONS: A ROMAN IDYLL?WINTER - Alma-Tadema, 1879.

      THE SEASONS: A ROMAN IDYLL?WINTER (THE BLUE OF COLD)Staalgravure uit 1879 van de hand van Auguste Blanchard naar het schilderij (Opus CLXXII) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema. Met potlood gesigneerd door Blanchard en Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 13,5 x 33 cm.Dit is de eerste gravure naar een serie van vier schilderijen die de seizoenen voorstellen. We zien een arme familie in blauwe en donkere kledingstukken, samengekropen om een sobere maaltijd te gebruiken. Alma-Tadema was aan de serie vermoedelijk begonnen tijdens zijn bezoek aan Rome in het begin van 1876.Een recensent van de Royal Academy was vol lof: ?At the foot of one of the columns of a gallery or porch are three women round a brazier, who beguile the time by conversation and a mess of some sort, which one of them stirs on the fire and another tastes. Auguste Blanchard?s engraving share in this design is perhaps the picture?s greatest triumph. The purity of the subdued tones and the texture of the marble base of the column that forms the background by the side of which we have a glimpse of the snowy landscape, are beyond all praise.?Prijs: ?1.250,- (incl. lijst).

        Photograph. Crow Treaty Commission

      1879. (INDIAN) HUFFMAN, L.A. Photograph. Crow Treaty Commission. [Washington, D.C.]: Huffman Milestown, 1879. Vintage collotype (measures 11-1/2 by 16 inches). $2600.Scarce vintage 1880 collotype of renowned western photographer L.A. HuffmanÂ’s handsome portrait of a delegation of prominent Crow chiefs, photographed by him during treaty negotiations in Washington, with his trademark “Huffman Milestown” signed in print at lower corner.Famed 19th-century photographer Laton Alton Huffman “made one of the most extensive and best-known 19th-century photographic records of the Cheyenne, Sioux, Crow and other Northern Plains tribes” (Sturtevant, North American Indian XI:27). Huffman, whose mentor was renowned western photographer Frank Jay Haynes, “captured the spirit of the American West perhaps better than any other artistÂ… One of HuffmanÂ’s greatest documentary contributions was photographing many of the great warriors” of Native American people, including many who became lifelong friends. To noted historian J. Frank Dobie, Huffman “has an enduring place alongside William H. Jackson as a pioneer photographer.” HuffmanÂ’s images were a major influence on “generations of painters who either directly copied his images or used then as compositional aids to complete their own work. Giants of western art such as Frederic Remington, Charlie Russell and Edward Borein collected Huffman photographs” (Peterson, xi, 67, 81-83).This very scarce large vintage Huffman collotype is from his photograph of a delegation of Crow chiefs, along with Indian Agent Keller and interpreters, taken in Washington D.C. in 1880. The splendid portrait speaks both to the dignity of the Crow leaders and to HuffmanÂ’s skill. Pictured are six Crow chiefs, Old Crow, Medicine Crow, Two Belly, Long Elk, Plenty Coups and Pretty Eagle, along with M. Quivey, Indian Agent Keller and Tom Stewart. In March 1880, in response to demands from white Montanans and railroads for a reduction in the Crow domain, this delegation was brought “to Washington D.C. to speak directly with the president.” According to Plenty CoupsÂ’ memoir, he was the first member of the delegation to be selected, and asked Two Belly, the senior River Crow chief, to accompany him. Agent R.A. Keller then chose Pretty Eagle, Medicine Crow, Long Elk and Old Crow. On arriving in Washington, the Crow delegation “showed remarkable spunk. It resisted pressure from the president and the secretary of the interiorÂ… In June 1880, the group agreed to a provisional treaty (in part because the Crows believed they would be held as hostages in Washington until they did so).” While the final agreement led to a substantial loss of land, it also “demonstrated that skillful leaders could calibrate their accommodation to American power, appearing friendly while resisting the white manÂ’s delays” (Hoxie, Parading Through History, 118-119). With “Huffman Milestown” signed in print at lower right corner; printed “Treaty Com.” at left corner mis-dated 1879. Containing printed names of all pictured at lower edge of print, with “Plenticus” corrected to “Plenty Coups” in an unidentified hand. Only tiny closed tear at upper margin not affecting image. A fine print.

Before Franklin Murphy went into business, Americans seeking high-quality varnish had to import it from England. Original, color-pictorial wrappers; spotty foxing inside front and rear covers, else a clean and bright copy of a carriage and young car makers book for children.

        THE SEASONS: A ROMAN IDYLL?WINTER - Alma-Tadema, 1879.

      THE SEASONS: A ROMAN IDYLL?WINTER (THE BLUE OF COLD)Staalgravure uit 1879 van de hand van Auguste Blanchard naar het schilderij (Opus CLXXII) van Sir Lawrence (Lourens) Alma-Tadema. Met potlood gesigneerd door Blanchard en Alma-Tadema. In de tijd met de hand gekleurd. H x B: 13,5 x 33 cm.Dit is de eerste gravure naar een serie van vier schilderijen die de seizoenen voorstellen. We zien een arme familie in blauwe en donkere kledingstukken, samengekropen om een sobere maaltijd te gebruiken. Alma-Tadema was aan de serie vermoedelijk begonnen tijdens zijn bezoek aan Rome in het begin van 1876.Een recensent van de Royal Academy was vol lof: ?At the foot of one of the columns of a gallery or porch are three women round a brazier, who beguile the time by conversation and a mess of some sort, which one of them stirs on the fire and another tastes. Auguste Blanchard?s engraving share in this design is perhaps the picture?s greatest triumph. The purity of the subdued tones and the texture of the marble base of the column that forms the background by the side of which we have a glimpse of the snowy landscape, are beyond all praise.?Prijs: ?1.250,- (incl. lijst).

        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]
