        [Photo Album]: Victorian Photography of the Maryland Area

      Maryland, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, 1888. Good. Two volumes. Oblong small quartos measuring 7" x 10.5". Both albums are half leather and brown cloth with "album of photographs" stamped in gilt on each of the front boards. Contains 73 black and white or sepia toned gelatin silver photographs measuring between 3.5" x 4.5" and 4.5" x 7" with captions. Good only with worn edges and waviness with some spotting on the second album with near fine photographs.Two photo albums kept by Oakland, Maryland native Edward S. Buckley, Jr. between 1887 and 1889. The albums detail his family and their home with images depicting the family representing four generations posed on the porch of their cottage as well as places they visited outside of Maryland. One photo shows the view "from the back porch of Oakland Cottage in September of 1888" which features a little patch of crops growing in the yard and an expanse of land beyond it. There are also portraits taken of family and friends posed around the cottage throughout the album which imply Buckley was an amateur photographer and enthusiast. One such photo shows a woman in a corseted dark dress standing on the porch of the cottage looking demurely at the camera, another shows a man in a suit with a hat and cane looking off into the distance. The natural beauty of the area is seen through the photos including one of the Youghiogheny River as seen from "County Bridge, Oakland." They also visited Eagle Rock and were photographed on the rock in fashionable hats and clothes. Fort Pendleton in Maryland is also photographed with images of the hills and trees of the area. Buckley traveled into Pennsylvania and West Virginia as well and photographed Semple's Hill in Aurora, West Virginia and a farm in town. Besides hiking, the family indulged in leisure activities which involved garden parties and musical entertainment. One photo shows the family in a parlor with a man playing banjo and another shows a woman outside playing a guitar. The second album, titled "In Memoriam," primarily focuses on the houses that they stayed and lived in including Mount Stony, a large home in the White Marsh Valley. These photos show the exterior of the estates as well as images of the interior depicting the parlors, dining areas, and bedrooms.A wonderful collection of relatively early amateur photography of Maryland and its surrounding states with a focus on nature and stately homes.

Small 8vo (14.5 x 8.5 cm). Title-page printed in red and black. Later marbled wrappers.

      Ferchl, p. 224; KVK & WorldCat (1 copy); cf. Brüning 1331; Ferguson, Some early treatises on technological chemistry (1888), pp. 24-34 . Second copy located of the 1660 edition of a popular and influential practical manual by Andreas Helmreich, on the preparation of black, coloured and metallic writing ink and dyes (the metallic inks especially for writing on wood), the etching of marble and metals (copper, brass, tin, iron and steel, with special reference to etching armour and weapons), gilding and silvering (including the gilding of the edges of books), colouring parchment, paper and feathers, making sealing wax and glue, and other materials used for art and writing, including recipes and minute details of the preparation of the materials. Books of a similar nature with the title Kunstbüchlein appeared already in 1499 and reappeared in a new form by 1535, but Ferguson notes that Helmriech's work owes little or nothing to them, has only two or three recipes similar to those in Boltz's 1547 Illuminirbuch and is largely original. All editions are rare and we have located only one other copy of the present 1660 edition, in the library of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York.With some minor restorations to the gutter margins of the title-page and with several small stains, and the whole somewhat dog-eared, very slightly browned and with occasional foxing and a marginal chip at the head of the dedication (perhaps removing an owner's name?), but the book is complete including even the 2 final blank leaves, and nearly all the leaves are in good condition. A rare and important work, giving a detailed account of the preparation of inks and of etching, as practiced in the 16th and 17th centuries.

        Emin Pasha in Central Africa.

      London: George Philip & Son,, 1888. Being a Collection of his Letters and Journals. Translated by Mrs. R. W. Felkin. Octavo. Original brown diagonal-ribbed cloth, titles to spine gilt, Emin Pasha's khedival tughra and name in Arabic gilt to front board, brown coated endpapers. Photogravure portrait frontispiece with tissue guard, one similar plate, folding colour map to rear. From the celebrated library of the Fermor-Hesketh baronets with their Easton Neston library shelfmark label to the front pastedown. Very light rubbing to extremities, faint marking to front board, the lower outer corner bumped, folding tear to map stub, the image unaffected, a few gatherings roughly opened along the top edge, but otherwise a largely unopened copy in excellent condition. First edition in English, others copies noted in plain cloth lacking gilt decoration. Appointed Ottoman governor of Equatoria in 1878, the German-born scientist Eduard Schnitzer, known as Emin Pasha, was largely unknown in Europe outside specialist circles in Europe until 1886, when Scottish explorer Robert Felkin (author of the introduction to the present volume) received and published a selection of correspondence confirming that he still held the beleaguered province and requesting help. He had been stranded in the region since the Mahdist revolt in 1881, though was still able to sent letters to Zanzibar via Buganda, and his cause aroused considerable sentiment in Britain owing to the recent death of General Charles Gordon, leading to the formation of the Emin Pasha Relief Expedition (1887-9) under the command of Henry M. Stanley. At the time of publication Emin Pasha had yet to be "rescued" by Stanley so had "no idea that these letters are being published in their present form" (Introduction). First published earlier the same year, in German, as Emin-Pascha, eine Sammlung von Reisebriefen und Berichten Dr. Emin-Pascha's.

        Étude clinique sur la fièvre du goitre exophtalmique et comparativement sur les fièvres spéciales a quelques autres névroses

      Paris, Ballière et fils, 1888, in-8, 127 pages, broché, couverture imprimée, Première édition de cette thèse sur le goitre exophtalmique, parue la même année que l'édition de Lyon, chez J. Gallet. Le goitre exophtalmique se caractérise par la présence d'un goitre proéminent ainsi que d'une saillie des yeux. Ce sont, par ailleurs, les symptômes de la maladie de Basedow. La médecine clinique décrit cette triade symptomatique à partir des années 1830 : le goitre, l'exophtalmie et les palpitations. Vingt ans plus tard, le développement de la chirurgie thyroïdienne transforme le goitre exophtalmique en une maladie spécifique à la glande thyroïde. Plusieurs médecins, dont Graves, Basedow ainsi que Charcot, étudièrent ce phénomène thyroïdien. Henry Bertoye, ex-interne des hôpitaux de Lyon, fut l'élève de Joseph Renaut. Exemplaire non coupé. Envoi signé de l'auteur à l'attention du docteur Carrier sur la page de faux titre. Cachet ex-libris du docteur Carrier sur le plat supérieur et la page de titre. Restauration du dos et du plat supérieur. Intérieur frais.
