        HISTORY OF SACRAMENTO COUNTY, CALIFORNIA. WITH ILLUSTRATIONS DESCRIPTIVE OF ITS SCENERY, RESIDENCES, PUBLIC BUILDINGS, FINE BLOCKS, AND MANUFACTORIES

      Oakland: Thompson & West, 1880. 294pp. plus two colored maps (one folding) and 216 lithographic plates (several with more than one illustration, eight of them double-page). Oblong quarto. Original half sheep and cloth, stamped in gilt and blind, spine stamped in gilt. Spine and hinges rubbed and scuffed, boards moderately worn at edges. Long closed tear in folding map and one text leaf, else internally very clean and fresh and in near pristine condition. A magnificently illustrated comprehensive history and description of Sacramento. While the text provides a history of the city from its settlement to the date of publication, the illustrations provide excellent views of numerous key buildings. Included are the state capitol, courthouses, the Sacramento Brewery, the Arcade Hotel, the offices of the Sacramento Bee and other newspapers, the Sacramento Seminary, cattle ranches, farms, lumber yards, merchants, mills, Breuner's furniture shop, the county hospital, and much more. Homes of several prominent citizens are shown, including Mrs. E.B. Crocker's mansion (her main residence as well as a smaller - yet still grand - home a block away), the opulent home of Albert Gallatin, and the ranch of cattle baron Frederick Cox. Scores of more modest homes in the city and country are shown as well, including the residences of several farmers and ranchers in what was once open countryside but is now part of Sacramento's suburban sprawl. One map is of California and surrounding states, while the folding map shows Sacramento County. An exhaustive effort, designed to attract additional residents and businesses to California's booming capital, and providing an unequalled visual record of Sacramento in the late 19th century. COWAN, p.548. HOWES S9, "b." ROCQ 6512. NORRIS CATALOGUE 3351.

Leporelloalbum, die Bezüge etwas beschabt, die Ecken leichter gestaucht, das Leporello zweimal durchtrennt, somit 2 Lagen fest und ein Teil mit 3 Blättern lose, die Photos schwach aufgehellt, an den Rändern etwas gebräunt, einige wenige Photos mit leichteren vereinzelten Schabspuren. Ein Innendeckel mit leichterem Wasserrand. - Mit einer privaten Eignerbezeichnung aus der Zeit geschrieben mit blauem Buntstift: "Souvenir de Mr. Douvry, Officier d`Art. - Hanoi, Tonkin". - Leporelloalbum mit 24 kolorierten Photographien japanischer Geishas in Hanoi! Karayuki-san wurden meist von armen Bauern in Japan entführte Töchter genannt, die als Prostituierte in den ausserjapanischen Gebieten wie beispielsweise in Indochina, Shanghai, in der Mandschurei aber auch in San Francisco und auch in Australien verschleppt wurden! - In einem ornamental gemusterten, stoffbezogenem Karton-Leporelloeinband der Zeit. - Sehr selten! Wir konnten vergleichbare Darstellungen zu diesem Thema nicht ermitteln! - Karayuki-san was the name given to Japanese girls and women in the late 19th and early 20th centuries who were trafficked from poverty stricken agricultural prefectures in Japan to destinations in East Asia, Southeast Asia, Siberia (Russian Far East), Manchuria, and British India to serve as prostitutes and sexually serviced men from a variety of races, including Chinese, Europeans, native Southeast Asians, and others. - Entre la fin du 19e siècle et le milieu du 20e, des milliers de femmes japonaises vivaient dans ce qui était alors l`Indochine française. Ces karayuki-san, le nom qu`on leur donnait alors, étaient le plus souvent des filles de pauvres pêcheurs. Leur père se voyait offrir par des médiateurs la possibilité de "vendre" leur(s) fille(s) contre argent et la promesse qu`elles occuperaient des postes de fonctionnaires. La réalité était toute autre. Ces dernières partaient pour l`étranger, généralement dans des grandes villes portuaires d`Asie du Sud-Est comme Singapour, Penang, Malacca, Port Swettenham, Sandakan, Kuching, Jakarta, Surabaya, Bangkok, Saigon, Hai Phong ou Hanoi pour devenir prostituées.

        [title transcribed as] Chiao hui tao wen ["Wade Gile" system of transcription] or Jiao hui dao wen [in the "Pinyin" transcription system].

      Shanghai: St. John's College 8vo (25 cm; 10"). One wooden printing block, one page on each side.. 1880 In October of 1935 the distinguished theologian and scholar Y.Y. Tsu of St. John's University in Shanghai sent this wooden block to the Pacific School of Religion as a thank-you for the hospitality the school had shown him during his visiting lectureship at PSR in the Fall of 1931. The printing block is from the 1880 printing of the Book of Common Prayer in Low Wenli, being => the first edition in that dialect, and it contains four pages from the psalter. Dr. Tsu explained in the letter accompanying the block (still present with it) that "since the [adoption] of the use of moveable type years ago, these blocks have been discarded." Griffiths had noted explicitly of the 1880 edition that it was "printed from wooden blocks (kept at St. John's College)." Provenance: St. John's College (later University), Shanghai; Y.Y Tsu; Pacific School of Religion (properly released). Very good condition.

        Forsmået af en kat. Original tegning med to hunde og en kat.

      1880 1880 - Signeret Simon Simonsen 1880. 15x22,5 cm. I lakeret træramme [27x34 cm.]. * Simon Simonsen tilsluttede sig ligesom faderen Niels S. den gruppe af kunstnere, der i tiden mellem de to slesvigske krige kaldtes kosmopolitterne eller europæerne. Godt opmuntret af det københavnske kunstakademi tilegnede han sig en glat og naturalistisk tilforladelig malemåde og et motivvalg, der oprindeligt, især appellerede til et internationalt, aristokratisk publikum. Heri er han beslægtet med Otto Bache, men S. nåede aldrig Baches popularitet og anerkendelse. På et område kunne S. dog måle sig med Bache, i dyreskildringerne, specielt skildringerne af jagthunde. Især hundehvalpe malede S. med en indtagende charme, som ganske vist ligger langt fra vort århundredes opfattelse af kunst, men som den fordumsfrie beskuer også i dag kan have fornøjelse af at se på.

        Etudes Académiques. 1re Partie [WITH 275 ORIGINAL ALBUMEN PRINTS]

      NP, [Paris] 1880 - Oblong quarto. Unpaginated. Original 3/4 leather over buckram with gold lettering on front board and spine. Raised bands. Silk moire endpapers. Rare photographic Nude study containing 1 page with a series of 5 albumen prints, and 27 pages with a series of 10 albumen prints on each page. Men, women and children are displayed in various posing positions. The origins of the history of nude photography lie in the so-called "academies", which provided painters, graphic artists and sculptors with study objects in the 19th century and which followed the historical artistic models of Classical Antiquity and the Renaissance. Nude photography soon increasingly became emancipated from being a mere model for painting and sculpture, and developed artistic ambitions of its own: photographers discovered in the art of the fin de siècle, with its debt to Symbolism, the nude as a reflection of emotional states and yearnings. In the outgoing 19th century, with its bias towards the exact sciences, the human body served as an object for the study of movement, such as in the celebrated series shots by Eadweard Muybridge showing the sequence of motions in human movement. Some age wear to binding with head and tail of spine partly chipped. Closed tears along most of front and back joints, but boards still holding. Closed tear on fly leaf. Minor and sporadic foxing throughout. Title in French. Binding in overall fair, interior in good to very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Japan: its History, Traditions, and Religions.

      London: John Murray,, 1880. With a Narrative of a Visit in 1879. 2 volumes, octavo. Original olive-green cloth, spines lettered in gilt, decorated overall in black and gilt with illustration after Hokusai to front covers, fore edges untrimmed, grey coated endpapers, binder's ticket of W. Bone and Son to rear pastedowns. 16 engraved plates of which 8 after Hokusai, 26 engravings to the text, folding map. 32 pages of advertisements dated September 1880 to rear of volume 2. Spines sunned, extremities bumped and lightly rubbed, endleaves foxed, superficial cracking to joints between a few gatherings. A very good copy. First edition, inscribed by Reed to "Robt Bird Esq, Mayor of Cardiff, with the kindest regards of the author, Christmas 1883" on the initial blank of the first volume. A notable association copy: Reed became Liberal MP for Cardiff in 1880, holding the seat until the Conservative general election victory of 1895; Robert Bird was chosen as the Liberal candidate 1890 but, owing to his loud opposition to the Boer War was soon dropped in favour of Reed, who held the seat until his retirement in 1906, and died later the same year. The arrival of four US warships in Edo Bay in 1853 signalled the end of Japan's two centuries of self-imposed isolation. The Tokugawa Shogunate was finally deposed in 1867 and when Japan looked abroad to modernise their navy, the Royal Navy was unsurprisingly identified as the model for development. In the late 1870s Japan ordered three British-built warships, all designed by naval architect Edward Reed: the steel-hulled frigate Fuso and two armoured corvettes, the Hiei and the Kongo, of which the latter was built at Earle's Shipyard in Hull, where Reed was also chairman. He was invited to Japan in 1879 by Admiral Kawamura ostensibly to oversee their delivery, though the Japanese also appeared keen to negotiate stronger political ties and revised trade deals.

        [EXTENSIVE COLLECTION OF ORIGINAL HAND-COLORED DRAWINGS OF MUSHROOMS]

      [France, 1880. 115 loose plates. Folio. Contemporary green portfolio with cloth spines and paper boards, secured with cloth ties. Some wear to binding. Plates mostly clean, some light wear to initial leaves. Very good. A handsome series of original handcolored drawings of mushrooms, each leaf containing several species drawn from different angles and labeled in manuscript. These beautiful watercolors depict both edible and poisonous mushrooms. Most are accompanied by a caption in pencil indicating the binomial Latin name and a reference to the mushrooms in the monograph of François Simon Cordier, LES CHAMPIGNONS DE LA FRANCE, first published in 1870. Each plate is numbered, as is each species on the plate. Species are systematically grouped together, creating a series of plates with one genus or another. All told, it is an impressive work, possibly a series of illustrations for a book, or simply the work of an avid amateur with a firm grounding in the taxonomy of mushrooms.

        Photos - Signature Stamped Original Albumen Prints of Rio De Janeiro

      BrBrazil, 1880. Rio de Janeiro, 1880s. Selection of eight (8) large original albumen print photographs, five (5) of which are the work of acclaimed Brazilian photographer Marc Ferrez, four of these bearing his embedded signature stamp. Photographs mounted recto and verso to four period heavy cardstock leaves, most with embedded captions in French and Portuguese. Photographs vary slightly in size, the smallest measuring approximately 20,5 x 16 cm, and the largest measuring approximately 13,5 x 19 cm. Small nicks and one tear to the three images taken by unidentified photographers, otherwise in Very Good Condition, the Ferrez photographs clean and Very Good Condition retaining strong impression. For decades Ferrez captured spectacular imagery of a rapidly changing city. In doing so, he effectively created the most important visual documentation undertaken in the country of Brazil. The present lot features some of his most iconic work, seldom found in original condition. Photographs by Marc Ferrez are as follows: ? Entrance to Guanabara Bay showing the city of Rio de Janeiro and the summit of Corcovado ? A horse-drawn tram carrying passengers over a bridge towards Corcovado Peak (some fifty years before the construction of its famous statue) ? Avenue of Royal Palms (Jardin Botanique allée des palmiers) ? A distant view of Corcovado Peak as seen from hillside on the Aqueduct Road. ? The Pont de Sylvestre (Ponte do Silvestre), most likely taken in 1884 after its construction, showing the first steam trolley descending the track to the bottom of Corcovado Mountain, possibly its very first passage. [The Corcovado Train (Trem do Corcovado), as it is called today, is a rack railway in Rio de Janeiro, travelling from Cosme Velho to the summit of the Corcovado Mountain at an altitude of 710 m. (2,329 ft.). The steam powered line was opened by Emperor Dom Pedro II on 9 October 1884, and became the first railway in Brazil to operate on electricity when it was converted in 1910. Popular for its magnificent views over the city and beaches of Rio in the late 1800s, today, the summit is also known for its statue of Christ the Redeemer which was erected in 1931.] Born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, Marc Ferrez (1843-1923) is considered one of the greatest photographers of his time. His entire adult life was dedicated to the art. The son of a French sculptor, he was sent to Paris to study his craft, returning to Rio de Janeiro as an apprentice to photographer Franz Keller of Germany. In 1865, Ferrez opened his own photography studio where he specialized in landscape and natural history. His work became so popular that Emperor Dom Pedro II decided to fund his work so that he might expand his art and enterprise (The emperor was an amateur photographer and a man of extreme wealth). The Emperor also made Ferrez "photographer of the Royal Navy" owing to his superior skill of neutralizing the ships' movements. A fire destroyed his studio after only eight years in operation. Ferrez subsequently traveled to France to purchase a new camera, and upon his return to Brazil began to focus on images of slaves working on plantations, as well as rural landscapes. From 1875-76 Ferrez joined American Charles Frederick Hartt on a geological and geographic expedition to the inner province of Bahia. It was during this trip Ferrez took pictures of indigenous Botocudo tribe, and also mastered the art of panoramic views. In 1876, he entered his ethnological photographs into the Exhibition of the Century in Pennsylvania, and won a gold medal. Ferrez reestablished a studio, taught photography, and operated a photographic supply house. Throughout the 1870s and 1880s he exhibited his work in Europe and in the United States of America. In 1904 he displayed in the World Fair held in St. Louis, being the only photographer to receive a gold medal. In 1907, he opened his own picture house in Rio de Janeiro, the Pathé Cinema. Marc Ferrez's most desired works were those of Brazilian landscapes and man-made engineering seen in Brazil, such as those included here. The three remaining albumens illustrate the Pedra da Gávea (Gávea Rock) as seen from a dirt road in Tijuca Forest, a harbor view with numerous large vessels flanking the shores of a colonial city, and a large group of foreign visitors. The photographer of these views are not identified, and may also be the works of Ferrez. At the time of these photographs, Rio de Janeiro was the capital of the Empire of Brazil, a 19th-century state that roughly comprised the territories which form modern Brazil and Uruguay. It 1889 It became capital of the Republic of Brazil, and by then was already a considerable community. At the time of the 1890 census, it had more than 520,000 inhabitants, ranking it as the largest city in Brazil and one of the larger cities in the world. . Very Good.

        Moyo-no-hon [Book of Designs.]

      Kyoto: , c.1880. Folio (470 × 335 mm). Original card wraps, attractively streak-patterned in terracotta, calligraphic title on front and rear wraps, old draper's label at upper margin, punch sewn at gutter margin along spine in Japanese style, wraps lined with gilt-flecked paper. 21 hand-painted designs on thick paper-stock, 6 with gilt flakes. A little rubbed, worn at the edges, slightly damped on the lower edge of the upper wrap, occasional minor paint smudging onto the facing blank, remains very good. Sumptuous design manuscript for early Meiji-era formal furisode kimonos which were often, as here, hand painted with rinpa-style designs on beautiful yuzen, dye-resist, dyed fabrics. The typically nature-based imagery includes exquisitely-rendered land- and sea-scapes, cranes in flight, a burnished old gold sunset over pines, striking flower- and leaf-based designs, which emerge as if from broken cloud against the richly coloured backgrounds. All are presented draped over a black and gold lacquer hanging rail suspended from a vermilion silk cord with heavy tassel. The manuscript was executed during the late 1870s, a time when demand for kimonos was rapidly growing, not only had the craze for all things Japanese opened up a voracious export market, but at home the relaxation of Tokugawa sumptuary laws offered vastly expanded opportunities at home. Visually highly appealing. (see Maria Mallett, Collectors' Kimonos; Boettcher, The Kimono Imagined; A History of the Kimono, Edo Period (1615-1868), Victoria & Albert Museum).

        On a New Action of the Magnet on Electric Currents in the London, Edinburgh, and Dublin Philosophical Magazine and Journal of Science, Fifth Series, Vol. 9 No. 55, March 1880, pp. 225-230

      - FIRST EDITION OF THE FIRST WIDE PUBLICATION OF EDWIN HALL'S DISCOVERY OF THE HALL EFFECT, offered here as a handsome, leather bound extract; the entire March 1880 issue was extracted and is present. The Hall effect occurs when an electric current is placed in a magnetic field, causing a potential difference and a transverse field is created. By measuring the potential one can calculate the strength of the magnetic field. Hall's discovery is considered a "seminal and foundational experiment of condensed matter physics" (Armitage, Johns Hopkins University Notes on Hall Effect Experiments). Edwin Hall was an American physicist who, while, working on his doctoral thesis under Henry Rowland at Johns Hopkins, discovered the Hall Effect for which he is best known. In late 1879 and while still a graduate student, Hall published his findings in a small quarterly journal edited by some of the scientists under whom he studied at Johns Hopkins. That publication is considered the "preliminary notice" of the Hall Effect (Chien, The Hall Effect, 523). It is with his publication of the 1880 paper in the Phil Mag (offered here), that Hall's findings gained international attention.In 1878 and while at Hopkins, Hall read Maxwell's 1873 Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism. In it, Maxwell discussed the deflection of a electronic currents by a magnetic field and wrote "It must be carefully remembered that the mechanical forces which urges a conductor . acts, not on the electronic current, but on the conductor which carries it." The statement made no sense to Hall, who wrote that it was 'contrary to the most natural supposition' (Hall, 1879); Hall then asked the opinion of his thesis advisor, Henry Rowland, who agreed that he too was confused by and skeptical of Maxwell's statement; Rowland noted that he had once tried a quick experiment but had had no success in making reliable measurements. Following ideas of his own and suggestions by Rowland, Hall then began a series of experiments that would lead to the discovery of the effect that bears his name. The 'new action' referred to in the title of his paper was Hall's recognition of "the appearance of a transverse potential difference in a conductor, fixed in position with respect to a steady magnetic field applied at right angles to the current flowing in the conductor. This 'Hall voltage' (or Hall Effect) is perpendicular to both the current and the applied field" (Leadstone, "The Discovery of the Hall Effect", Phys Educ., 14, 1979). "What made the Hall effect a surprising discovery for its time (1879) is that it occurs under steady-state conditions, meaning that the voltage across the plate persists even when the current magnetic field are constant over time. When a magnetic field varies with time, voltages are established by the mechanism of induction, and induction was well understood in the late 19th century. Observing a short voltage pulse across the plate when a magnet was brought up to it, and another one when the magnetic field was removed, would not have surprised a physicist of that era. The continuous behavior of the Hall-effect, however, presented a genuinely new phenomenon" (Hall-Effect Physics, 1). "The Hall Effect is now a routine characterization technique for electronic properties of solids. It provides an introduction to computer acquisition, magnetic probes, and transport experiments in solid which are really the bread and butter of condensed matter experiments. It is only a slight overstatement to say that all other experiments one does in condensed matter are simply higher order experiments to shed light on interesting phenomena observed in transport" (Armitage). In addition to the technique itself, currently "Hall effect sensors are readily available from a number of different manufacturers, and may be used in various sensors such as rotating speed sensors (bicycle wheels, gear-teeth, automotive speedometers, electronic ignition systems), fluid flow sensors, current sensors,
