G.W. & C.B. Colton & Co., New York, 1884. Pocket map of typical format in embossed cloth covers, as issues. Map of a portion of Florida, from the state line with Georgia in the north to Lake Okeechobee in the south, and from the Atlantic Coast in the east to Madison and Taylor Counties in the west, omitting the Florida Panhandle.Counties are outlined in green, yellow and pink.Other geographical entities include towns, lakes, rivers, bays, and coastal islands.The map is at a scale of 10 miles to an inch.A grid is laid over most of the map, according to the plan adopted in surveying the Public Lands of the United States, in which the country is divided into townships by lines 6 miles apart, which are further subdivided into a smaller grid of 640-acre sections.Text on the map explains how the grids can be used to locate any piece of land on the map. Between 1831 and 1890, the Colton family was among the most prominent and prolific American map publishers.The company was founded by Joseph H.

Colton (c. 1831-1916).George Colton compiled the company's 1855 Atlas of the World and served thereafter as the firm's principal map compiler, cartographer and engraver.The company continued to publish a wide range of atlases, pocket maps, wall … [Click Below for Full Description]

Frederic Cozzens was one of America's greatest marine artists. Like nearly every other great marine artist, he was thoroughly acquainted with every aspect of ship construction and the art of sailing. He is best known for his paintings of great American yachts of the latter half of the 19th century, which were commissioned by many of New York's leading yachtsmen. In 1884, he expanded his audience by making a series of lithographs of his paintings. The first and most brilliant series was American Yachts, Their Clubs and Races from which this print comes. The Early Racers portrays four of the New York Yacht Club yachts from the early 1850s. First and foremost is the America, then Maria, then the Una coming round followed by the Ray. The yacht America is the best known, of course, for having first won the silver cup from the Royal Yacht Club in 1851. Jacobsen, Frederic Cozzens. Marine Painter, New York: 1982.

ARRHENIUS, SVANTE AUGUST. - [ELECTROLYTIC THEORY OF DISSOCIATION]
Stockholm, P.A. Norstedt, 1884. 8vo. (215x145 mm). No.13+14, Vol.8 of 'Bihang till K. Svenska Vet.Akad. Handlingar'. 63,(1);89,(1) pp. and 1 lithographed plate. Fine and clean. Uncut and mostly unopened. Custom cloth box. Papers from this supplement series to the 'Proceedings of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences' are often mistakenly identified as offprints or 'first separate edition' because they have their own title page with the publishers named and their own pagination, but they are not - all publications from this series were printed separately in this way and issued in a wrapper mentioning number and volume (not present here). First edition of Arrhenius' famous dissertation, in which he first presented his theory of electrolytic dissociation. Arrhenius was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 1903 "in recognition of the extraordinary services he has rendered to the advancement of chemistry by his electrolytic theory of dissociation". See Dictionary of Scientific Biography, I:p.296-302 and Partington, IV:p.672-81. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

He surveyed along the north bank of the Roper to its confluence with Leichhardt's Wilton River and followed the Wilton upstream to the junction with the Mainoru River. Returning to the Roper, he went downstream until he reached its tidal flats, about twenty miles from Limmen Bight. A broad line of country was then explored to the north and the expedition reached the Gulf of Carpentaria near latitude 14* S, opposite Groote Eylandt. A general north-west course was taken and the Goyder River traced to the coast at Castlereagh Bay. Directing the expedition homeward, Lindsay crossed the Blyth River above its tidal influence, and reached the Mann River, a tributary of the Liverpool. Following a south-westerly course now, the party reached the banks of the Liverpool River and followed it to its source. Continuing south, they came to another stream, which Lindsay described as the "supposed Cadell River", but he had come again to the banks of the Mann, which was also followed to its sourc … [Click Below for Full Description]

COZZENS, Frederic S. (1846-1928)
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1884. Colour-printed lithograph, mounted on card. Very good condition apart from a 3/4" loss in the right margin. 14 1/2 x 20 3/4 inches. (of mount) 20 5/8 x 26 3/4 inches. Frederic Cozzens was one of America's greatest marine artists. Like nearly every other great marine artist, he was thoroughly acquainted with every aspect of ship construction and the art of sailing. He is best known for his paintings of great American yachts of the latter half of the 19th century, which were commissioned by many of New York's leading yachtsmen. In 1884, he expanded his audience by making a series of lithographs of his paintings. The first and most brilliant series was American Yachts, Their Clubs and Races from which this print comes. Over the Cape May Course depicts a tense moment during the Regatta of 1873 in which the schooners Clio, Enchantress, Dreadnaught, the working schooners Sharpshooter and Reindeer, and the pilotboat Negus race neck and neck down the Cape May Course, south of the Jersey shallows. Beginning off Owl's Head, New York Harbour, continuing around the lightship in the Five Fathoms Bank off Cape May, New Jersey, and finishing at the Sandy Hook lightship, the Regatta was a spirited 300 mile race from which the Enchantress emerged victorious.
