Very Good copy. "Hirn became one of the first to investigate the internal phenomena of the steam engine. He had five engines at his disposal, including two of about 100 horsepower—a Woolf compound and a single-cylinder machine. In 1847 he discovered the mechanical equivalent of heat (later than, but independently of J. R. Mayer and Joule, whose priorities of 1842 and 1843 he acknowledged)." "In continuing work directed at increasing the efficiency of the mill engine, Hirn established the first heat balance (1857). He showed the beneficial advantage of superheat over dry saturated steam in reducing cylinder condensation; the calculation is still known as Hirn’s analysis. Furthermore, he convinced skeptics of the advantage of steam-jacketing cylinders, a practice that had been discontinued when pressures, temperatures, and speeds had risen significantly above those of Watt’s era: he proved decisively that cylinder walls were active “thermal reservoirs.” Hirn’s Exposition analytique et expérimentale de la théorie meécanique de la chaleur (1862) was among the first systematic treatises on thermodynamics." "Hirn’s activity was not limited to thermodynamics; the climatology and meteorology of Alsace were an intertest of his later years. Before the Franco-Prussian War he had established a number of weather stations that reported to him. After his retirement in 1880, he was able to resume this work through support from the Institut de France, instrumentation for the major obsrvatory atop his house being furnished by the Ministry of Public Works in Paris. Astronomy also engaged him, a paper on Saturn’s rings causing much discussion."--"Complete Dictionary of Scientific Biography", Vol. 6. Detroit: Charles Scribner's Sons, 2008. p431-432.

        Winning His Spurs: A Tale of the Crusades

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1882. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original red boards with the spine and front board lettered and decorated in gilt and black, with all three edges of the closed page block gilded, and with the small binder's ticket to the rear pastedown's lower left corner. The volume is complete with the 32 page catalogue to the rear. This is the EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE first edition of one of Henty's earliest books for boys. Shortly prior to its publication in book form, the tale had been serialized in 26 installments in the Union Jack, and, as this book publication came directly from that serialization, the illustrations are within the text rather than on separate plates. The catalogue to the rear is dated September, 1883 -- while the earliest catalogue published in this title is dated December, 1881. The volume is mildly askew, the front cover is unusually bright, the spine and the rear board's forecorner show minor fading, and there is only modest exterior wear. Within, the original patterned endpapers are cracked and the leaves show scattered foxing -- mainly to the earliest and latest pages. As Newbolt points out, "no publisher's records survive", so the number of copies of the first edition published is unknown -- nevertheless, the number of first edition copies surviving to the present time is decidedly low. A Very Good copy of the EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF G. A. HENTY'S EARLIEST BOOKS FOR BOYS, a genre by which he made much of his living.

        The Chess Monthly

      London: Jas Wade, 1882-1883. iv+380 pages with illustrations, diagrams, tables, and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in half brown leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue marbled boards. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume IV (4). (Betts: 7-25). First edition.The Chess Monthly of Great Britain was one of the first to give properly annotated games. The principal editor, Leopold Hoffer, was helped enormously by having J H Zukertort as co-editor until his death in 1888. There were four regular sections: news, annotated games, problems and endgames. In addition, Hoffer carried on a profoundly bitter feud with his one-time benefactor, Steinitz. This publication should not be confused with The Chess Monthly published in the United States which was short lived from 1857-1862 and edited by Fiske and Morphy.Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri’s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases. He also had frequent contacts with Gregorio Lastra, Normando Ivaldi, Gaspar Soria and Carlos De Veyga, all known collectors of chess. He died in 2009 at the age of 88.Condition:Corners bumped, Ruggieri's stamp to front end paper, foxing else a very good copy of a scarce item.

        Remarkable and newly discovered original manuscript draft pages of Charles Guiteau's 1882 book justifying his shooting of President Garfield, written from jail

      Washington, DC, 1882. 6.25" x 7.75". "Original manuscript draft page, 6.25” x 7.75”. Marginal tears and losses, light toning and soiling, glue remnants. Manuscript reads: [Brooklyn?] newspaper recently published a column + and a half of interview a lengthy interview with my brother John Watson W. Guiteau of Boston and I herewith extract from it. The interview is headed “Guiteau,” + is about me.” Guiteau has pasted a cutout of the newspaper article to which he refers onto this page.Also included is a lengthy, yet incomplete letter from one of Guiteau's admirers, Clara Augusta Davis, of West Hoboken, New Jersey, dated January 11, 1882. While Davis does not excuse Guiteau's murder of the President, throughout her letters she expresses her sincere belief that he truly believed that he was doing God's work and was insane.Davis even speaks of a personal visit to Guiteau in confinement, writing: ""I had hoped to see you … but Pa, who, dear soul, is the most indulgent of parents, felt constrained to refuse my petition to visit you at the jail.” Guiteau has crossed out “West Hoboken” and has written in “New York”, adding “No 2.” at the top of the page. Following James A. Garfield's death on September 19, 1881, Charles Guiteau, who had already been imprisoned and charged with attempted murder, was now charged with murder and went on trial on November 14, 1881. The trial concluded on January 30, 1882 and on February 4, the court sentenced him to hang on June 30. While awaiting his execution, Guiteau composed a sequel to his 1879 religious tract, The Truth, a Companion to the Bible, entitled, The Removal (the term he employed to describe his assassination of President Garfield). The condemned prisoner employed Gibson Brothers of Washington to print the book as The Truth and The Removal.Extremely Rare. These are among the only known pages of Guiteau's manuscript for The Removal known to be extant in private hands. Auction records reveal no other draft pages of the present, most important manuscript. Only Malcolm Forbes had a similar Guiteau item, sold at auction in 2002 (Christies, March 27, 2002, Lot 122, $9,988).From the family of printer William Gibson, whose firm printed the book in 1882. "

        Hulda. Marche et airs de Ballet. Transcription a 2 pianos. Autograph musical manuscript signed and dated November 18, 1889

      Folio (345 x 270 mm.). 35, [ii] (blank), 36-61 pp. Wrappers with attractive calligraphic titling to upper. Notated in black ink on 14 hand-ruled staves per page. Occasional autograph corrections; significant rewriting of two bars on page 42; additional markings in red crayon and pencil. Wrappers slightly worn and torn at edges. Minor internal wear. Franck began his opera Hulda in 1882 and finished it in 1885. Its first performance was given posthumously on March 8, 1894 at Monte Carlo. The opera is based on a Scandinavian legend with text by Ch. Grandmougin after a dramatization by Bjornson. It was not published until 1894, at which time it was issued by Choudens in Paris. Even though Hulda did not premiere until after Franck's death, the Marche and Airs de Ballet from the opera were performed earlier and quite well received. In a letter to Vincent d'Indy (one of Franck's students) written from Antwerp on August 14, 1885 Franck wrote: "I want to tell you that at a concert here your `Chevanchee du Cid' was played perfectly, and had a great success...You were in the same company as your master, whose march and ballet music from `Hulda' were warmly applauded..." D'Indy: César Franck, p. 246. The same music from Hulda was also performed at the Franck Festival on January 30th 1887 at the Cirque d'Hiver. It would appear, moreover, that of the entire opera the ballet music was closest to Franck's heart. Again, quoting from d'Indy: "At the same time he almost took the bit between his teeth (forgive the trite expression) at one moment while composing Hulda; but it is remarkable that it was the ballet that carried him away from the first, and that was still symphonic music. He wrote this ballet without pause or break, at the same time as a prologue, which does not appear in the score as it now stands, having been replaced, no one knows why, by an epilogue. One evening in the autumn of 1882, when Henri Duparc and I called to see him, he came to meet us, flushed and very much excited, and fired off these words at us, which can only be really appreciated by those who knew "Father" Franck: "I think the ballet of Hulda is a very good bit of work; I am very pleased with it. I have just been playing it over to myself, and - I even danced it!" ibid p. 179.

        Pasquin: the Pastoral, Mineral, and Agricultural Advocate

      London: Judd and Co, 1882. Large thick quarto, ii, 980 pp., fine in handsome half brown morocco with gilt lettering by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Early London printed facsimile of the first three volumes of Pasquin (January 1867 to November 1869).Eustace Mitford 'came to South Australia in 1839, and remained here until he died thirty years afterwards. As a journalist he has been rarely equalled for fearlessness. His style of writing was reckless, fanciful, full of the strangest paradoxes and surprises… Pasquin was established as a favourite with a large portion of the South Australian people, and the object of unmeasured hatred and denunciation to other portions' (from the preface).

        Traité de l'art des accouchements.

      Paris, Lauwereyns, puis Steinheil, 1882-1886-1898-1901. ____ Première édition. Dans sa préface (Décembre 1881) Stéphane Tarnier s'explique sur le but de son ouvrage. "Après avoir écrit le texte des 3e et 4e sections de l' "Atlas" de Lenoir, revu et annoté les quatre dernières éditions de Cazeaux, j'avais acquis la conviction que ces livres malgré leur succès permanent de librairie, devenaient insuffisants au point de vue scientifique, et qu'il y aurait un grand intérêt à faire paraître un traité d'obstétrique, dont le cadre serait assez large pour qu'il put contenir le résumé des nombreux progrès accomplis depuis quelques années dans l'art des accouchements." Illustré par plus de 750 figures dans le texte. Contient : Tome 1. Grossesse et accouchement physiologiques. T. 2. Pathologie de la grossesse. T. 3 Dystocie maternelle. T. 4 Dystocie foetale. Accidents de la délivrance. Opérations. Infections puerpérales. Le tome 1 est rédigé par S. Tarnier et G. Chantreuil et les tomes 2-4 par Tarnier et Pierre Budin qui a achevé l'ouvrage, Tarnier étant mort en 1897. Une auréole en coin sur le 2e volume, papier un peu bruni, petit accroc à une coiffe. Bon exemplaire de ce livre étonnamment rare et qui semble avoir été un échec commercial; il en existe très peu d'exemplaires complets dans les bibliothèques publiques. *****. 4 volumes grand in-8. Collation : XII, 956 / (4), 586 / VI, 771 / XIX, 754 pp. Demi-chagrin noir, filets dorés, dos à nerfs. (Reliure de l'époque.).
