Der niederl. und lateinische Text zweispältig gedruckt. Jan Swammerdam (1637-1680), niederländischer Naturforscher und gilt als Begründer der Präformationslehre (Evolutionslehre). 1658 beschrieb er als erster Mensch die von ihm unter dem Mikroskop entdeckten roten Blutkörperchen. Ab 1661 nahm er ein Medizin-Studium an der Universität Leiden auf, ging 1664 nach Paris, kehrte ein Jahr später zurück nach Leiden und Amsterdam und wurde 1667 zum Dr. med. promoviert. 1675 veröffenltichte er seine Abhandlungen zur Naturgeschichte der Insekten. Er erkannte, dass die Königin das einzige fortpflanzungsfähige Weibchen des Bienenvolkes ist und stellte fest, dass die Metamorphose der Insekten nichts anderes ist als Entfaltung und Wachstum bereits vorhandener Anlagen. Weitere wichtige Studien befassen sich mit dem Lebenszyklus der Frösche und mit dem Bau der weiblichen Geschlechtsorgane des Menschen."The Biblia Naturae is the finest collection of microscopical observations ever produced by one worker ... The book is consulted by naturalists to this day. Some of the figures have never been excelled ..." (Singer). The scarce original edition with Latin and Dutch text printed in double columns. "Despite a scientific career that lasted only a dozen years, Swammerdam was one of the oustanding comparative anatomists of the seventeenth century. His most remarkable work was in the field of insect anatomy, which he undertook in order to disprove still-current Aristotelian notions (which he opposed upon religious grounds) that insects lack internal anatomy, develop by metamorphosis (sudden and complete transformation) and arise from spontaneous generation. By refining his techniques of microdissection and injection to the point where he could use them on the smallest and most delicate anatomical parts, Swammerdam was able to illustrate for the first time the complex internal structures of insects, including their reproductive organs and to demonstrate the gradual development of an insect's adult form throughout all its larval stages. These observations are 'indubitable the foundation of our modern knowledge of the structure, metamorphosis and classification of insects' (Cole, p. 285). In addition Swammerdam performed valuable investigations of crustaceans, mollusks and frogs, and was the first to prove experimentally that muscles do not increase in bulk when contracted via nerve stimulation. "The 'Biblia naturae', Swammerdam's major work, was published fifty-five years after his death by Hermann Boerhave ... the fifty-three copperplates were prepared under Swammerdam's direction from his own drawings" (Haskell F. Norman Library of Science & Medicine, 2037)

He proposed to abolish poverty and secure fair distribution of the rewards of labor by appropriating all economic rent by taxation, and abolishing all taxation except upon land values.

        Terrestrial table globe - Jan Felkl, c. 1880.

      SMALL TERRESTRIAL TABLE GLOBE WITH STANLEY?S NEW DISCOVERIES IN THE CONGO?Aardglobe naar de Nieuwste Bronnen bewerkt door W.J. Geerling. Fabriek van J. Felkl. te Praag?, small (16 cm) terrestrial globe with 12 gores produced in Prague by Jan Felkl c. 1880. Lithographed in black and two shades of blue, with Asia, Australia, the Americas and parts of Antarctica outlined in red. With a brass meridian ring graduated in degrees and a brass pointer at the north pole (dial lacking), in a contemporary four-legged wooden base with central support, the horizon ring with a facsimile of a contemporary paper horizon ring pasted on it.A charming little globe, produced in Prague for the Dutch market by Jan Felkl (1817-1887) with the assistance of W.J. Geerling of Arnhem. Schools formed a large part of Felkl?s market, though the globes sold to schools are not distinguished from those sold to others. Since Felkl left Prague for Rostok in 1870 and traded as Felkl & Sohn from 1875, the plates for the present globe must have been made no later than 1870. Africa shows the results of Henry Morton Stanley?s exploration of the Congo in the years 1874 to 1877, so the plates must have been updated. It depicts the upper Congo accurately, reduces the old elongated Lake Albert to its proper extent and perhaps attempts to depict what are now lakes Edward and George. The presence of Transvaal Republic in South Africa suggests a date before its annexation by England in 1881.Condition: professional repair of a 1 cm hole in the Atlantic Ocean, east of West Indies, and a few minor scuffs, but still in good condition overall. A nice little globe from the famous firm of Felkl in Prague.Price: ?3.000,-.

Albums such as this, with its important contemporary visual history of colonial South Africa, prove central to an understanding of colonial histories in documenting military campaigns, “topographical featuresÂ… and visible mineral resources,” while also demonstrating photographyÂ’s role as “an integral part ofÂ… the colonial enterprise” (Lenman, 132). The volume also includes informative text on South African history and a biographical essay on British statesman Sir Henry Bartle Frere, to whom this volume is dedicated. Frere served as “governor of the Cape and high commissioner for the settlement of native affair in South Africa” and his leadership was instrumental during the Anglo-Zulu War of 1879 (DNB). Printed by Sam Alexander and issued by subscription only, with 100 tissue-guarded vintage collotype prints produced by Marion and Company, a London photographic firm. Many prints initaled “SA” on the recto in the lower right corner, plate No. 16 signed by William Roe of Graaff Reinet, others unsigned.

        Holy Bible

      1880. BIBLE. The Holy BibleÂ… With Explanatory Notes, Practical Obsevations, and Copious Marginal References. By Thomas Scott. Glasgow, Edinburgh and London: William Mackenzie, circa 1880. Two volumes. Folio (11 by 15 inches), contemporary full brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spines and boards, raised bands, all edges gilt. $2500.Later edition of ScottÂ’s copiously annotated Bible, illustrated with 5 maps and 41 engraved plates, handsomely bound.Although ordained a deacon in 1772, Scott took holy orders more to secure his own comfort than to proclaim Christian doctrine, much of which he did not believe. In the late 1770s, however, a friendship with John Newton (author of the hymn “Amazing Grace”) led to the awakening of ScottÂ’s sincerely evangelical faith. As he wrote in his memoir The Force of Truth (1779), “Forever blessed be the God of long suffering and mercy, who had patience with such a rebel and blasphemer, such an irreverent trifler with his majesty, and such a presumptuous intruder into his sacred ministry!” With great zeal, Scott renewed his devotion to both his parishioners and his biblical studies. This commentary won him a large reputation (though not large royalties, due to his publisherÂ’s debts). “Sir James Stephen does not hesitate to speak of it as ‘the greatest theological performance of our age and country” (DNB). First published in 174 weekly numbers between 1789-92, this edition is embellished with 5 maps and 41 engraved plates, several after paintings by noted biblical painter John Martin (said to have possessed “the genius that to madness nearly is allied” by Art Journal editor S.C. Hall) and a few after photographs by “the most prominent of the early photographers of Egypt and the Holy Land,” Francis Frith (McDarrah & McDarrah, 156). Without preliminary gatherings A-E in Volume I; all biblical text present. See Darlow & Moule 952; Herbert 1366. Houfe, 223. Occasional light foxing. About-fine condition.

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1880 - 1880 Wisden in Original Wrappers in Near Fine Condition

      1880. This 1880 Wisden is in it's original wrappers and is in close to fine condition. The book is entirely unrestored. The front wrapper is complete, flat and without chips. There is a tiny amount of loss at the top of the rear cover and a small crease on the back cover to the top right hand side. There is a very small amount of loss to the top and bottom of the spine. The binding is tight. Internally, the contents are in fine condition - complete, bright and unmarked. Overall the book is in almost fine condition and it is very rare to find a Wisden of this vintage in such original, unrestored condition. The last 1880 that I sold on Wisden Auction in almost as good condition went for £1,600 so the book is perhaps a bit of a bargain!

Umfangreiche Sammlung mit Bildern sowohl zu den Sehenswürdigkeiten, der Topographie wie auch zur Dokumentation der grössten europäischen Baustelle um 1874 bis 1882. Eingeweiht wurde die Strecke mit dem Tunnel als zentrales Bauwerk am 1. Juni 1882. Der Elsässer Fotograf Adolphe Braun (1811-1877) dokumentierte ab den späten 1860er Jahren viele Städte Europas und war einer der ersten Fotografen der Hochalpen. 1869 dokumentierte er im Auftrag der französischen Regierung den Bau des Suezkanals. Braun starb 1877, fünf Jahre vor der Eröffnung der Bahn. Ob wirklich alle Aufnahmen von ihm stammen ist deshalb fraglich.

        A la Guerre comme a la Guerre. BOUND WITH: Le Grand Magasin d'Images

      1880. CHAM (pseudonym of NOÉ, Charles Amédée de). A la Guerre comme a la Guerre. BOUND WITH: Le Grand Magasin dÂ’Images (bound first). Paris: Aubert, circa 1880. Oblong quarto, contemporary half green calf gilt, marbled boards and endpapers. $2750.First edition of this suite of 30 full-page hand-colored lithographs of Cham caricatures documenting the French colonization of North Africa, bound with an intriguing publication of 790 French magazine illustrations.Cham saw a career that would result in over 40,000 drawings, many of them caricatures and sketches of French and Algerian life. In 1843 he began to contribute to such newspapers as Le Charivari, whose staff he eventually joined and remained for 30 years. These are ChamÂ’s parodies of war scenes (apparently from the French colonies in North Africa), 30 hand-colored lithographs similar to those he produced for the Album du Siège (Charivari, 1870)— in collaboration with Honoré Daumier. “Cham embued stories [in Le Charivari] with the comic force of his caricaturesÂ… These, in the future, will remain when the fleeting stories are forgotten: the day after the stew evaporates and salt escapes us. People who have seen ChamÂ’s images will always remember the huge success of the cartoonist” (Henri Beraldi). Bound with this is an ingenious publication of 790 small in-text wood-engravings, produced by various engravers and appearing at different times in French magazines, around which is woven a clever story line about the travels and adventures of the Lacroix family, written to match the diverse engravings. Minor spotting to margins of a few plates (not affecting images),light expert restoration to contemporary binding. Extremely good condition.

        Monograph of the Pittidae

      , 1880. 1880. First Edition . GOULD, John. Monograph of the Pittidae. London: by the Author, 1880. Two parts in one, Part I with plates and text, Part II text only, all published. Large folio (15-1/2 by 22-1/2 inches), original half green cloth, original green printed boards. $22,000.First edition of this lovely Gould monograph, with ten beautiful hand-colored plates, in original printed boards as issued.The Pittidae is a family of brilliantly colored and thrush-like insectivorous birds, mostly limited to the subtropical and tropical forests of Asia, Indonesia and Australia. ""In the field of natural history the accomplishments of this man [John Gould] are truly monumental. No other ornithologist has ever exceeded (or will ever exceed) the number of Gould's bird discoveries and the magnitude and splendor of his folio publications"" (Sauer, John Gould, the Bird Man, xv). ""Lithography which introduced a greater freedom of line and softer tones than had hitherto been known was ideally suited as a medium for bird pictures, the finished prints resembling watercolors with the birds set in their natural habitats often amongst plants and flowers. Gould was meticulous about accuracy both in design and coloring"" (Nissen, IVB 381). ""The 10 hand-colored lithographs are mostly taken from the Birds of Asia, Birds of Australia, and Birds of New Guinea"" (Sitwell, 102). Originally projected for completion in four parts, the Pittidae was abandoned after Gould's death. No title page or preliminary letterpress was issued; the title is taken from the front cover. The present copy includes the ten leaves of text written by R.B. Sharpe (each leaf signed ""[R.B.S.]"") for the uncompleted second part. Zimmer, 263. Fine Bird Books 102. McGill/Wood 365. Nissen IVB 377.
