        Large Format Photos Encased in Portfolio with Gilt Title in German - Dutch Tobacco Plantation in Sumatra Indonesia

      Sumatra, 1886. Bekala Estate, near Medan, Sumatra, 1886-1888. Portfolio of photographs containing 20 rare, large format albumen views of one of the earliest tobacco plantations in the Dutch East Indies, taken and preserved by one of its administrators, 12 being dated and captioned in manuscript in Dutch. Photographs vary in size. Eighteen measure approximately 27 x 36 cm, are mounted with onto heavy cardstock leaves, and show the plantation, its workers and administrators. One further duplicate print is included. Two measure approximately 17 x 22,5 cm, are mounted onto gilt outlined grey photograph mounts, and illustrate a sojourn to a nearby missionary house. The lot housed in a purpose-made portfolio with folding overlaps, a double elephant folio measuring approximately 40 x 50 cm, maroon cloth boards with gilt title to front in German "Erinnerung an Sumatra" [Memories of Sumatra]. Minor wear at extremities of portfolio, slight age-toning, otherwise in Very Good Condition, exceedingly rare primary source photographic material. Paramount to any tobacciana collection, photographs of a sizeable and foremost Dutch East Indies tobacco plantation - producing the world's best tobacco at the time - are exceedingly scarce. This portfolio of views compiled by an administrator who was involved in overseeing the daily production operations and who evidently lived on the Bekala Estate. Situated in the Deli Serdang Regency in Northeastern Sumatra, it was only eleven kilometres south of the city of Medan which ultimately developed into a prosperous colonial city due to neighbouring plantations such as this one. The large colonial images show Indian workers engaged in the fermentation house, men preparing for a day's work with field implements in hand, young children engaged in the grinding or pounding process. A vast estate, rows upon rows of tobacco plants flourish, while trees are felled in surrounding hills for further expansion. Especially striking is a group photograph of Indonesians in the village of Buah Nabar who appear most perplexed by the man behind the lens. As well, an indigenous community on the estate is illustrated and captioned "Haus des Pengulus... Kampung... Bekalla Mai 1888," loosely translated as the private house of the community chieftain. [Buah Nabar is in the Sumatera Utara province, Deli Serdang] Administrators Mr. van Beuningen, Mr. van Helsdingen, Mr. Jacob Weil, and others, pose in front of their principal cottage. Gatherings also take place on the verandas of their individual exquisite estate residences, providing them all the comforts of Europe in the deforested jungles of Sumatra. Weil names his residence "Maison Riau." The photographs from this collection are taken in May 1888, exceptions being two from the autumn of 1887, and the earliest dated 1886. The Tropen Museum in Amsterdam holds the same photograph of the men working in fermentation house, theirs being captioned "Koelies bezig in de fermenteerschuur op de tabaksonderneming Bekalla van de Deli Maatschappij Oost-Sumatra." In 1895 a sample was taken from the Bekala Estate near Medan, Sumatra, by the United States Department of Agriculture, describing it as follows in the report published January 1896, "This sample is from the Bekala estate of the Deli Maatschappij. The soil is loamy and easily cultivated, and produces the very best kind of Sumatra tobacco imported into America, known as the "bull eye speckled" tobacco. The sample is from a depth of from 4 to 12 inches." Still today people flock annually to the Bekala Estate, albeit not for its tobacco, but to celebrate the Hindu festival of Thaipusam at the Sri Mariammam temple built there in 1876. This is one of the few places in the world still participating in the traditional Theemithi ritual - walking on fire. From humble beginnings as a small kingdom on the Deli River delta, Medan became a booming plantation town and administrative centre in the early 1900s , attracting wealthy Europeans and rendering great fortunes as Sumatra's tobacco, rubber, palm oil and tea fetched high prices on the world markets. The Deli district tobacco was considered the best in the world and the Deli wrapper leaf for cigars rapidly became famous. The modern history of the Medan area begins in 1862 when Dutch entrepreneur Jacob Nienhuys recognised the potential of the rich volcanic soils of the area. Backed by several other Europeans keen for a fortune, Nienhuys persuaded the Sultan of Deli to grant a concession of land for the growing of tobacco, consequently annexing the lands predominantly inhabitanted by the Karo people and alienating them as a result of deforestation. The chief (datuk) of the Kingdom of Sunggal in Deli was strongly opposed and took action against the Dutch, resulting in the Sunggal War of 1872-1897. The Karo people were supported by the people of Aceh and Malay, and although the foreigners suffered significant losses, the Karo were defeated by the Dutch military. From the late 1870s, major international investments in plantation agriculture flooded into the area. Medan grew from a tiny village to a prosperous colonial city.. Very Good.

        Danton's Tod. Ein Drama in 3 Akten.

      New York, Im Verlage von W. L. Rosenberg (Wilhelm Ludwig Rosenberg), 1886.. Erste Separatausgabe. 12°. 92, (2) Seiten. Original Softcover / Originale Titelbroschur. Nur minimal angerändert ist die original erhaltene, sehr fragile Broschurausgab dieses ersten Separatdrucks eine kleine Sensation. Büchner's Danton war zuvor nur in den Nachgelassenen Schriften erschienen und wurde hier erstmals vom Sozialisten und Sektretär der Sozialistischen Arbeiterpartei Amerikas und Redakteur der amerikanischen Ausgabe von "Die Fackel", "Vorwärts" und "New York Socialist" herausgegeben. Wilhelm Ludwig Rosenberg hatte zuvor bereits als Publizist in Frankfurt am Main gearbeitet und die Antiszialistengesetze zwangen ihn im Herbst 1880 zur Auswanderung in die Vereinigten Staaten (Quelle: Katja Rampelmann - "Im Licht der Vernunft").. Wilhelm Ludwig "William" Rosenberg (1850-unknown, 1930s) was a German-American teacher, poet, playwright, journalist, and socialist political activist. He is best remembered as the head of the Socialist Labor Party of America from 1884 to 1889. Wilhelm Ludwig Rosenberg was born in Hamm, Westphalia, Germany in January 1850. Rosenberg was university educated, and worked as a teacher of Latin and French in Frankfurt am Main. Rosenberg was politically radical from an early age and was a contributor to Die Neue Welt (The New World), a German socialist newspaper. Rosenberg was forced to emigrate from Germany in 1880 under the pressure of the Anti-Socialist Laws of 1878, landing in America. Rosenberg resumed life as a teacher in Boston and joined the fledgling Socialist Labor Party of America (SLP). Rosenberg subsequently moved to Chicago, where he served as editor of a succession of politically oriented newspapers, including Die Fackel (Sunday edition of the Chicagoer Arbeiter-Zeitung, 1881-1884), the SLP's official organ, Der Sozialist (1885-1889), Der Tramp (New York, 1888), and Vorwärts, (New York City, from 1892). (Wikipedia) While in Chicago, Rosenberg wrote politically charged plays to be performed in the several working-class theatres of the city.[7] One of these dramas, Die Nihilisten (The Nihilists), was performed in honor of the Paris Commune in 1882 and featured three future defendants in the 1886 Haymarket affair - Michael Schwab, August Spies, and Oscar Neebe - playing leading roles.[7] The play dealt with legal proceedings against a group of Nihilists in Tsarist Russia, who were sentenced to exile in Siberia, and finally freed by their comrades following the overthrow of the Tsar.[8] In the May 18, 1882 performance in North Side Turner Hall, the role of the liberators was played by members of the local Lehr-und-Wehr Verein (Education and Defense Society), an armed workers' militia movement sweeping the German-American radical community in the Chicago area at the time.[8] The implications of this casting could not be missed. Another play by Rosenberg, Die Tochter des Proletairiers (The Proletarian's Daughter) was performed at the 1883 celebration of the Paris Commune in Chicago.[8] This play dealt with the daughter of a class-conscious worker who fell in love with the son of a factory owner and was subsequently repudiated by her father.[8] By 1883 the membership of the SLP had fallen to an estimated 1500 members in just 30 Sections, a depressing atrophy which had led to the abandonment of the organization in April of that year even by its nominal head, Corresponding Secretary Philip Van Patten.[9] Two individuals filled the role on a temporary basis for the rest of the year, culminating in the party's 4th National Convention in December 1883. There the 16 delegates, in an effort to forge links with non-party revolutionary socialists in an effort to keep them out of the camp of the rival anarchist movement, decided to steer the organization on a leftward course, curtaining the authority of the governing National Executive Committee and abolishing the centralizing post of Corresponding Secretary altogether in an effort to render the SLP a more decentralized organization amenable to the revolutionary left.[10]

        Letter signed ("L. Pasteur").

      [Paris], 9. VII. 1886.. 8vo (178 x 114 mm). 3 pp.. In French, with date, the word "Confidential" and the opening salutation "Dear Doctor" at head of first page in Pasteur's hand. On stationery imprinted with his monogram, to an unidentified doctor: "I would be much obliged to you if you could have the letter enclosed herewith given to Representative Wiedersperg, in relation to the motion he just presented to the Austrian Parliament and that was so successful, as it should have been. I also know that it was put together with you in mind. I have just received from Dr. Von Frisch the pamphlet containing the sum of his experiments with rabies, a document I have been anxiously awaiting in order to respond to the 16 proposals that appeared in The Medical Week of December 30. What a disappointment! Frisch's pamphlet is so faulty that I will not engage in criticizing it. His experiments and arguments are not worthy of any attention. I will only talk about it if authorized people think it important, no doubt out of ignorance of the issue. That doctor surely deceived me! Since his coming by my laboratory, I had been inclined to consider him an impartial scientist, well versed in experimental practices. I feel disillusioned and, to be brief, I will only give you one justification: he finds Benzi and Amozzo s experiments and their consequences to be good, only too happy to note that they coincide with his own. And when I contradict him with my own positive results and call his negative, he denies me the right to judge his work, and claims that his results are positive. No discussion is possible with a man whose reasoning lacks scientific logic". - Pasteur's own rabies experiments had indeed been successful. In April 1882, he undertook research that proved to be the most spectacular of all-the preventive treatment of rabies. After experimenting with inoculations of saliva from infected animals, he came to the conclusion that the virus was also present in the nerve centers, and he demonstrated that a portion of the medulla oblongata of a rabid dog, when injected into the body of a healthy animal, produced symptoms of rabies. By further work on the dried tissues of infected animals and the effect of time and temperature on these tissues, he was able to obtain a weakened form of the virus that could be used for inoculation. Having detected the rabies virus by its effects on the nervous system and attenuated its virulence, he applied his procedure to man; on 6 July 1885, he saved the life of a nine-year-old boy, Joseph Meister, who had been bitten by a rabid dog. The experiment was an outstanding success, opening the road to protection from a terrible disease.

        The Evil Genius. A Domestic Story

      London: Chatto and Windus, 1886., 1886. First Edition. 3 volumes; 8vo. Vol. I: viii, 284 pp.; Vol. II: vi, 304 pp.; Vol. III: vi, 266 pp., 32 pp. of publishers' catalogue dated May 1886 bound in at end. Half titles present. Publisher' original dark green cloth with plants and bats in black to uppers and spines, titles in gilt to spines; publishers's initials blind-stamped to centre of lower boards; floral end papers. Binding rubbed, corners worn, creases to upper board of vol.I. A little general age toning. A sound set of first editions of a rare title, held in a protective black cloth slipcase. First published in the Leigh Journal and Times, 11 December 1885-30 April 1886; the Bolton Weekly Journal (12 December 1885-1 May 1886) and several other Tillotson syndicated newspapers. In this novel, Wilkie Collins treats the related themes of divorce and child-custody. The story was ahead of its time in presenting both the wife and the mistress of an adulterous husband in a sympathetic light and concentrating the reader's attention on the plight of the child involved in the break-up of a marriage. The 'evil genius' of the title is an interfering mother-in-law. Collins unexpectedly upholds double standards in a passage added shortly before publication, claiming that a husband's adultery should not, by itself, be sufficient grounds for divorce, and ends the novel with a reconciliation and remarriage.

        Il Capitale. Critica dell'economia politica.

      Torino, Unione Tipografico-Editrice, 1886. Royal8vo. Bound in a nice later half vellum binding with red title-label to spine with gilt lettering. Gilt ornamentation to spine, forming 6 compartments. In "Biblioteca dell'Economista", Third Series, volume 9. A few very light scattered brownspots, otherwise a very fine and clean copy. 685 pp. [Entire volume: (4), 903, (1) pp.].. First Italian translation of Marx' landmark work, constituting what is arguably the greatest revolutionary work of the nineteenth century. The work proved immensely influential in both communist and fascist circles. Antonio Gramsci, founding member and one-time leader of the Communist Party of Italy (PCI), based much of his theoretical and practical work on the present translation of Marx' work and Ezra Pound read this Italian translation (which is among the most heavily marked annotated volumes in his personal library) and was horrified by the accounts of the exploitation of labor given by Marx which eventually grew into his sympathy for fascism and Mussolini's socialist roots. (Rainey, Textual Studies in the Cantos).The translation was done in nine installments beginning in 1882 but was not published until 1886. The translation, however, remained relatively unknown: "It was difficult in Italy during that period [late 19th century] to obtain Marx's works. With the exception of Cafiero's hard to find summary and some other summarizing pamphlets published by another Southern scholar, Pasquale Martiguetti of Benevent, those Italians who sought to consult Marx were forced (unless they could read the original German) to have recourse to the French translation of the first volume of 'Capital', published in 1875. True, in 1886 Boccardo had published in Biblioteca dell'Economista, an Italian translation of 'Capital', but this was inaccessible to those of modest means." (Piccone, Italian Marxism).The first edition of the work originally appeared in German in 1867, and only the first part of the work appeared in Marx' lifetime.Bert Andréas 154Einaudi (not numbered, between no. 3769 and 3770)Mattioli 2287 (a reprint from 1916)

        A New Logical Machine

      Boston: The American Academy of Arts and Sciences,, 1886. [Reprinted from the Proceedings of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Vol. XXI.] Octavo (242 ×157 mm), pp. 303-307 + 3 blank pages. Sewn as issued in printed stiff paper wrappers. Plate with 2 photographic images of the logical machine. Wrappers split along spine with a couple of tiny chips. Internally in excellent condition Original offprint of Allan Marquand's presentation of his new logical machine to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in November, 1885. A student of Charles Sanders Peirce, Marquand (1853-1924) graduated from Princeton in 1874 and obtained his Ph.D. in philosophy in 1880 from Johns Hopkins University, returning to Princeton in 1881 to teach Latin and Logic. Inspired by the work of W.S. Jevons, during the year 1881 Marquand designed and"constructed a logical machine somewhat similar to the well-known machine of Prof. Jevons, and printed logical diagrams for problems involving as many as ten terms. This earlier instrument and the logical diagrams formed the basis of the machine illustrated on the accompanying plate. The new machine was constructed in Princeton during the winter of 1881-82 by my friend Prof. C. G. Rockwood, Jr., whose mechanical skill and untiring patience gave me invaluable assistance... Like the instrument of Prof. Jevons, and that of Prof. Venn, it is constructed for problems involving only four terms, but more readily than either of those instruments admits of being extended for problems involving a larger number of terms." Martin Gardner, in his work Logic Machines and Diagrams, noted the following: "The machine is a decided improvement over Jevons's. By abandoning the clumsy equational form which Jevons used, Marquand was able to cut down the number of keys to less than half of the 21 keys required on Jevons's model. In addition, the number of steps for feeding each premise to the machine is enormously reduced. A third advantage is that the simplified interior mechanism makes it possible to construct similar machines for more than four terms without enlarging the device to giant, unwieldy proportions. Charles Peirce, in an article on "Logical Machines" (American Journal of Psychology, Vol. 1, November, 1887, p. 165), summarizes these advantages in the following interesting and characteristic manner: Mr. Marquand's machine is a vastly more clear-headed contrivance than that of Jevons. The nature of the problem has been grasped in a more masterly manner, and the directest possible means are chosen for the solution of it. In the machines actually constructed only four letters have been used, though there would have been no inconvenience in embracing six. Instead of using the cumbrous equations of Jevons, Mr. Marquand uses Professor Mitchell's method throughout. 1 There are virtually no keys except the eight for the letters and their negatives, for two keys used in the process of erasing, etc., should not count. Any number of keys may be put down together, in which case the corresponding letters are added, or they may be put down successively, in which case the corresponding combinations are multiplied. There is a sort of diagram face, showing the combinations or logical products as in Jevons's machine, but with the very important difference that the two dimensions of the plane are taken advantage of to arrange the combinations in such a way that the substance of the result is instantly seen. To work a simple syllogism, two pressures of the keys only are necessary, two keys being pressed each time. A cord has also to be pulled each time so as to actualize the statement which the pressure of the keys only formulates. This is good logic: philosophers are too apt to forget this cord to be pulled, this element of brute force in existence, and thus to regard the solvet ambulando as illogical. To work the syllogism with Mr. Jevons's machine requires ten successive movements, owing to the relatively clumsy manner in which the problem has been conceived." A rare early work on logical machines, precursor to the modern computer.
