        Superb presentation signed photo, (George Albert, 1853-1884, 4th Son of Queen Victoria, Duke of Albany, a haemophiliac, died after an accident on 28th March in Cannes)

      1884 - the head and shoulders image is signed underneath and set in an oval silver mount, black pleated fabric surrounds this and the gilt metal crest above and the whole is framed in an ebonised and carved inner frame which is finally inclosed in a black lacquer and gilt box frame, the picture is 5½" x 4" and the final size is 17½" x 11", no place, In the spring of 1884 his health was poor and so he was sent to the south of France. At first he seemed to benefit from the change, but a fall in a clubhouse at Cannes led to an attack of epilepsy, of which he died at the Villa Nevada on 28th March. The funeral took place in St. George's Chapel, Windsor, on 6th April. He left a daughter & a posthumous son, born in July. Queen Victoria assembled several of these mourning gifts but this is the first one I have seen outside a Royal collection. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Fascinating series of 27 Autograph Letters Signed to Frank F. Mewburn, (Walter William, 1848-1933, Portrait Painter, RA. 1881)

      1884 - (born 1820 or 1821, Solicitor & Collector, of Larchfield, Darlington), and 1 autograph envelope, with many insights into the values of a fine young artist, his growing portrait practice, (including Charles Darwin's, 1875), good and bad hanging at the R.A., many comments on older painters including Holman Hunt and what his own contemporaries are doing, leisure snatched in a busy life, and the effect of London fog, with much gratitude for Mewburn's continuous support and introductions to his friends in the North, often in racy language, "I am sorry the portraits seem to them cross looking but all my portraits are more or less so. I cannot do the smile fearing a smirk . I am furious at their hanging my Chemist above the line and that odious Mayor of Newcastle on the line . I was delighted to receive your kind congratulations" (on being elected A.R.A.), with a Checklist of extracts, 146 sides 8vo, the envelope from Utrecht, 1st October 1880, the letters nearly all from 43 Bloomsbury Square, London, 1872-1875, 1877 & first 4 sides only present of 2 letters, some cross-writing (easily read), some a trifle dusty but generally in good condition CHECKLIST 1. 20th November 1872. 43 Bloomsbury Square, London. Thanking Mewburn "for again interesting yourself so kindly on my behalf" and discussing Mewburn's suggestion of painting Mr Barmingham of Darlington, once he has got further for the next Academy submission in April, and of painting Edmund Backhouse, (1824-1906, Banker & M.P. for Darlington), as a companion to Macbeth's portrait, extolling the virtues of 50" x 40" against "full-length . with our confounded modern costume" at a much higher price. 7 sides 8vo. 2. 1st December 1872. Expressing his regret at the "alarming attack of illness" of Mrs Mewburn, (Mewburn's mother Elizabeth), he yet hopes he "may be able to do something that would afford you pleasure" and will be delighted to paint Mr Backhouse. 4 sides 8vo. 3. 14th December 1872. Thanking him for the photograph of Mewburn's father (Francis, Promoter and Solicitor, 1819-1828, of the Stockton & Darlington Railway), but explaining in great detail why a posthumous portrait would be unsatisfactory, "the colour, the freshness and vigour of each touch and all the little accidents which working from nature enable me to get . can never be got from a photograph", asking in a P.S. "May I keep the Carte of your father? . It is so full of strong character". 7 sides 8vo. 4. 4th April 1873. His picture "was not finished enough to send in . a succession of infernal fogs . clean knocked me out . I shall make a very much finer thing of it", but it was "deuced hard lines", he will "turn it to the wall" and have a week "down to the coast and through the New Forest", he had a Private View of John Phillips' pictures - by Jingo for . strength of colour they lick all modern work out and out". and praising 'old Marks' pictures" in similar language. 6 sides 8vo. 5. 30th April 1873.

"That notice in Saturdays Times was . a jolly good lift.- for what Tom Taylor writes must influence thousands", talking of the Macbeth family's submissions, "This R.A. business is a terrible lottery", he regrets "the unpleasantness between yourself and Marks", to see Haddon Hall one day "is one of my dreams", he describes the visit of Jozef Israëls (1824-1911), "I started him with palette and brushes and in an instant he was off . he is about the size of a tin-tack and somewhat of a similar shape . he bangs away like a blacksmith . though a severe doctor his suggestions were most valuable". 8 sides 8vo. 7. 20th June 1873.

        New Orleans - The Crescent City - Lake Pontchartrain in the Distance.

      New York. Harper's Weekly. 12-13- 1884. Oversized black and white wood engraving, Supplement to Harper's Weekly of December 13, 1884, sheet size approximately 22 x 31 3/4 inches, professionally restored and mounted on linen, with original folds minimised. Very good, clean condition. A handsome bird's eye view looking down on the waterfront with a view of the city and Lake Pontchartain in the far distance. The harbor is busy with steamers lined up and cargo being loaded and unloaded. Many of the city landmarks are carefully delineated and marked in a legend beneath the image: Exposition Buildings and Grounds, Shot-Tower, Lee Monument, Lafayette Square, St. Charles Hotel, Hotel Royal, Opera House, Jackson Square and Cathedral, French Market, and Railroad Ferry. The large Harper's Weekly supplements such as this are much scarcer than the centrefold views. This bird's eye view by Charles Graham, who made something of a specialty of city views, provides a vivid portrait of the New Orleans of 130 years ago.

        Huckleberry Finn - Civil War November 1884 to April 1888 Century Monthly Magazine Series First American Printing of Huckleberry Finn, Memoranda on the Civil War

      1884. soft. Fine. Original Edition The Century Illustrated Monthly Magazine November 1884 - to - April 1888 Volumes 7 - to - 13 These 7 volumes, each one containing 6 original issues (42 issues), comprise one of the most desirable and highly sought after classics. Original text block beautifully rebound in black leather and buckram with gild lettering. The December 1884 issue contains the First American Printing of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain . Each issue contains the Famous Series entitled Battles and Leaders of the Civil War . These volumes contain this complete series . The publishers contracted with leaders on both sides of the Civil War to write their first hand accounts and details of the significant battles and events. U.S.Grant was paid $1,000.00 of each of 4 articles. Grant later included these articles in his 2 volume set memoirs. The series drew so much interest that it lasted for three years. Among the contributors to the series besides Grant were Union generals, William Tecumseh Sherman , Philip Sheridan , and George B. McClellan . As The Century tried to avoid bias and promote American unity, it also sought out and accepted accounts from those on the Confederate side, including the generals James Longstreet and P.G.T. Beauregard . The contributions led readers who had served in the war to submit unsolicited recollections and previously unpublished documents to the magazine, in addition to criticisms and rebuttals of published pieces. These submissions were so numerous that in 1885 The Century began to include them in a section titled "Memoranda on the Civil War". (sources include Wikipedia) Quote - These war papers created in this country the greatest interest ever felt in any series of articles published in a magazine There are so many Firsts in this set that they are too numerous to mention here. For example: articles by Theodore Roosevelt and Illustrated by the famous Frederick Remington, Poems by Longfellow, 'The Bostonians' by Henry James, 'Abraham Lincoln, a History' by former secretaries John Hay and John G. Nicolay All are authentic originals Publisher-Printing Location: The Century Company, New York, New York Date and Numbering: November 1884 - to - April 1888 Volumes 7 - to - 13 Size and Page Count:6.75 X 10 Tall Condition: - Fine - Professionally Rebound in black leather buckram with gild lettering , text blocks in fine condition.

        Diary of Ten Years of an Early Settler in Western Australia; and also A Descriptive Vocabulary of the Language of the Aborigines.

      London: M. Walbrook, 1884. Octavo, in original gilt lettered publisher's blue cloth. A detailed first-hand account of pioneering days at the Swan River settlement.The author, an Irish candidate for the Bar, was attracted by the lure of large land grants in Western Australia and travelled to the colony in 1830. This book publishes Moore's correspondence with friends, family and colleagues in Britain; so forming a valuable account of day-to-day life interspersed with gossip, natural history observations and other details. Diary of Ten Years of an Early Settler is a significant record of interpersonal contacts between early colonists. For example, a rambling account of some 16 pages describes an expedition by Moore and other settlers with a view to inspecting their grants. The party was guided by 'Mr. Dale, an officer in the 60th regiment, the first who had penetrated beyond the Range, was selected to point out the most practical route'. Lieutenant Robert Dale, explorer and draughtsman, is today best remembered for his magnificent lithographic panorama of the Swan River settlement.Much of Moore's book records his personal contacts with Aboriginal tribes, and a descriptive vocabulary exceeding 100 pages forms and appendix with a separate title-page and preface.

        Journals of Australian Explorations.

      Brisbane: James C. Beal, Government Printer, 1884. Octavo, in the original blind-embossed and gilt lettered green cloth, bookplate. Remarkably fine copy in original condition of the complete edition of the journals of eight expeditions undertaken by the Gregory brothers in Western, Northern and Central Australia between 1846 and 1861. This was the first comprehensive publication of the Gregory journals, many of which had not been printed before in their entirety.The Gregory brothers played an important role in the history of exploration in Western Australia, and Augustus also led expeditions further afield into unmapped regions of the continent. In 1855, on Governor FitzRoy's recommendation, Augustus Gregory was selected by the British Government to lead the North Australian Exploring Expedition. The party of eighteen included his brother Henry as second-in-command, the botanist Ferdinand von Mueller, and the naturalist and artist Thomas Baines. Starting from the mouth of the Victoria River in August 1855, Gregory covered over five thousand miles in his sixteen-month expedition opening up vast areas for pastoral settlement. He was awarded the gold medal of the Royal Geographical Society on his return and is one of the greatest inland Australian explorers. In 1858 Gregory made one further expedition in search of Ludwig Leichhardt and his party, but was forced by drought to abandon the search. This book includes material related to the search.Francis Gregory served his apprenticeship under his brother Augustus in Perth. His exploration with the North West Australian Exploring Expedition of 1861 was to become the basis for later pastoral settlements on the north-west coast. A fresh bright copy.

        Recherches sur la Conductibilité Galvanique des Électrolytes. I: La conductibilté des solutions aqueuses extrêmement diluées déterminée au moyen du dépolarisateur. II: Théorie chimique des électrolytes.

      First edition Stockholm: P.A. Norstedt, 1884. The rare offprint issue of Arrhenius's landmark discovery of the theory of electrolytic disassociation. Arrhenius was awarded the 1903 Nobel Prize in chemistry "in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered to the advancement of chemistry by his electrolytic theory of dissociation." By 1880, "it was known that solutions of certain compounds conduct electricity and that chemical reactions could occur when a current was passed. It was thought that the current decomposed the substance. In 1883 Arrhenius proposed a theory that substances were partly converted into an active form when dissolved. The active part was responsible for conductivity. In the case of acids and bases, he correlated the strength with the degree of decomposition on solution. This work was published as Reserches sur la conductibilite galvanique des electrolytes (1884; Researches on the Electrical Conductivity of Electrolytes) and submitted as his doctoral dissertation... Arrhenius sent his work to several leading physical chemists, including Jacobus van't Hoff. Friedrich Ostwald, and Rudolf Clausius, who were immediately impressed" (Biographical Encyclopedia of Scientists). Arrhenius soon gained high international acclaim, ultimately being awarded the 1903 Nobel Prize in chemistry for his work. 8vo: 225 x 145 mm. Original printed wrappers, uncut and unopened, a very fine and completely unmarked copy, pp. [2], [1-3] 4-63 [1:blank] and 1 lithographed plate; [1-3] 4-89 [1:blank]. Rare.

        Etudes de dynamique chimique

      Amsterdam: Frederik Müller, 1884. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo., [4] [i] ii-iv, [1] 2-214 [2] pp., text wood-engravings. Original publishers wrappers, creased and dust soiled in margins. Upper spine chipped (professionally restored). Provenance: Strychnin specialist Prof. Franz Feist, with his ex-libris on title page. ----Partington IV, pp. 658-60; Norman 2129. RARE FIRST EDITION, THE BIRTH OF PHYSICAL CHEMISTRY. Groundbreaking publication of Dutch chemist Van 't Hoff. Van't Hoff's treatise on chemical dynamics, in the words of his colleague Arrhenius, "develop[ed] an imposing and harmonious scheme for the whole subject of chemical influences and actions" (Partington IV, p.658). It dealt with reaction velocity, the theory of equilibrium, and the theory of affinity as based on free energy. Van't Hoff classified reaction velocities into unimolecular, bimolecular and multimolecular, wrote the equation for the effect of temperature on the equilibrium constant, and formulated the principle of mobile equilibrium (at constant volume, equilibriums tend to shift in such a direction as to oppose temperature changes imposed on a system) that became the basis of the Van't Hoff-Le Châtelier principle. In 1901 Van't Hoff received the first Nobel Prize in chemistry, in part for his work in chemical dynamics (Norman 2129). Near Fine.
