LOBACHEVSKY, Nikolai Ivanovich.
Rolla, Missouri: School of Mines Press, 1891. The true first publication in English, incredibly rare offprint issue (only one other copy known), of Lobachevsky's revolutionary discovery of non-Euclidean geometry. This work, published in the short-lived and little-known journal Scientiae Baccalaureus, is a translation of Geometrische Untersuchungen zur Theorie der Parallellinien (Berlin, 1840), which was the first complete account of Lobachevsky's work to be published in a Western European language; "following its publication, in 1842, Lobachevsky was, on the recommendation of Gauss, elected to the Göttingen Gesellschaft der Wissenschaften" (DSB). "Cet ouvrage est un vrai chef-d'oeuvre de la littérature mathématique" (Piccard, p. 19). Lobachevsky sent Gauss a copy of the 1840 work, and Gauss's opinion of it is recorded in a letter, dated 28 November 1846, written to his colleague the astronomer H. C. Schumacher: "In developing the subject, the author followed a road different from the one I took myself; Lobachevsky carried out the task in a masterly fashion and in a truly geometric spirit. I consider it a duty to call your attention to this book, since I have no doubt that it will give you a tremendous pleasure." "The researches that culminated in the discovery of non-Euclidean geometry arose from unsuccessful attempts to 'prove' the axiom of parallels in Euclidean geometry. This postulate asserts that through any point there can be drawn one and only one straight line parallel to a given straight line. Although this statement was not regarded as self-evident and its derivat … [Click Below for Full Description]

Emilio, Luis
Boston: The Boston Book Company, 1891. First edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. Presentation copy, signed by the author, of a history of the first regiment made up of free Black volunteers. The inscription reads, "Frederick T. Brown, Esq. With Compliments of Luis F. Emilio. New York Nov. 29, 1893". It is most likely that Frederick Brown was the pastor of the Central Presbyterian Church of Chicago, which was organized January 29, 1865, a Black congregation. At the end of the Civil War separate Black congregations were being formed in the north, allowing Blacks to have some voice in church governance and providing help to impoverished ex slaves. Brown in his first July 4th address, said: "Today, then, as on no previous fourth of July, we are a free people; four millions of colored people and twenty-seven millions of white people are stripped of their shackles and stand up together before the world freemen". (Frederick T. Brown, An Address Delivered in the Central Presbyterian Church, Chicago July 4th, 1865, (Chicago: Jameson & Morse, Printers, 1865, p18). This volume is a history of the first regiment made up of free Black volunteers from the North, which was organized by the Emancipation Proclamation, and prioritized by the Massachusetts governor who had long worked to recruit African Americans. Soldiers were recruited by prominent white abolitionists including Ralph Waldo Emerson. Luis Fenellosa Emilio (1844 - 1918) who became Captain in the 54th Mass. Volunteer Infantry, wrote this account in 1891. Born in Salem, Mass he volunteered at the age of 16 in 1861 whil … [Click Below for Full Description]

Darwin Charles
London: John Murray, 1891. Third edition and printing. Illustrated with diagrams and 109 tables. 8vo, publisher's original dark green cloth, lettered in gilt on the spine and decorated in blind with panel designs and border ruling on the covers. viii, 487, 32 ads pp. A very fine and bright copy indeed with some light foxing to the front free-fly as is typically the case. A FINE COPY OF THIS ELUSIVE BOOK. Darwin considered this book to "form a complement to that on the Fertilisation of Orchids".<br> The LIFE AND LETTERS of Darwin (III, p. 274) quotes Asa Gray as saying that "if the Orchid-book (with a few trifling omissions) had appeared before the 'Origin' the author would have been canonised rather than anathematised by the natural theologians," and noted that a review in the 'Literary Churchman' found only one fault "that Mr. Darwin's expression of admiration at the contrivances in orchids is too indirect a way of saying, 'O Lord, how manifold are Thy works.'"<br> The book was concerned with working out in detail the relationships between sexual structures of orchids and the insects which fertilize them, their evolution being attributed to natural selection, and therefore was the first of the volumes of "supporting evidence" for his ORIGIN OF SPECIES. THE EFFECTS OF CROSS AND SELF FERTILISATION continues the work begun in 'ORCHIDS".
