         Large broadside titled, "Single and Double Hand Alphabet"

      New York: C. Alvord Printer, 1856. Unbound. Very good. The broadside measures approximately 22" x 17"; the image is about "20 x 16". The print features wood-engraved portraits of the Abbe de L`Epee and Laura Bridgeman along with images of hands forming letters in both single-hand and double-hand alphabet systems, as well as illustration of the "new Institution for the Deaf and the Dumb." The accompanying text advocates for the use of the Single Hand Alphabet. The broadside is in nice shape with some edge wear, storage folds, minor dampstains, and a few short splits and pinholes along those folds. The "new" Institution for the Deaf and the Dumb was located at Washington Heights on "the east side of the Hudson River, about nine miles from the City Hall, N.Y." First established in 1818, it was the second school for the deaf to open in the United States, preceded only by Thomas Gallaudet's and Laurent Clerc's American School for the Deaf at Hartford. The Abbe de L 'Epee was one of the founders of deaf education. Although often erroneously credited with inventing sign language, in actuality he was taught to sign by the poverty-stricken deaf community of Paris. He, however, then recorded, categorized, and standardized a sign language so that he and others could use it in education programs throughout France. It was this sign language system that Clerc brought to the United States that became the foundation of American Sign Language including the ASL Alphabet. Laura Bridgeman, who was left deaf and blind after surviving Scarlet Fever at the age of two, was the first American deaf-blind child to gain a significant education. She was enrolled by her father at the Perkins Institute for the Blind, where, under the direction of Dr. Samuel Gridley Howe, she learned to read and communicate using braille and the Abbe de L 'Epee's manual alphabet. Although initially treated by Howe as a daughter, he later shunned her after marrying Julia Ward, who, as related by her daughters, had a strong "physical distaste for the abnormal and defective" and a "natural shrinking from the blind and other defectives." Helen Keller's mother learned about Bridgeman's success which was described in Charles Dicken's American Notes.This led to her hiring Anne Sullivan, a teacher and former pupil at Perkins. When Sullivan arrived at the Keller household, the gift doll she brought for Helen was wearing clothes made by Laura Bridgeman. Rather scarce. As of 2018, one other is currently for sale in the trade. ABPC and the Rare Book Hub report only one sold at auction, and OCLC shows seven examples held by institutions.

         Sketches in the Crimea.

      Dickinson Bros New Bond Street London 1856 - Landscape 8vo. (19.5 x 27.7 cm). Lithographed title, 13 tinted lithographed plates; light soiling and spotting, small marginal repairs. Publisher's brown cloth, gilt lettering to upper cover, a bit rubbed, more towards extremities. Very rare album comprising views of Sebastopol, Balaklava, Kadikoi, the Tchenaya river and others. The album also includes a view of the interior of a wooden hut, which in the spring of 1855 began to replace tents, as these had proved inadequate against the elements during the previous winter. The plates were lithographed after drawings by Captain Charles Augustus Drake Halford (1831-1907), who served in the 5th Dragoon Guards during the Crimean War. Roger Fenton took a number of photographs of Captain Halford that can today be found in the collections of the Library of Congress and the Royal Collection. The work was published by Dickinson Brothers (active 1852 - 1908), a leading London printing and publishing firm. In the same year they issued another series of views of the Crimean War in the same format, after drawings by Sir Henry James Warre (1819 - 1898). Both titles are very rare, Halford's even more so: We could trace no records of this title at auction in the past 35 years. Copies were found only in the collections of the Brown University library, Ohio University and the British Library. There were none in the Library of Congress, Yale University Library or Harvard University Library. Not in Abbey. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Folding letterpress census table, red flag of the Friendly Arabs, p. 76, finished in original hand-colour, and 6 folding lithographic maps, comprising: 1) "Map of Maritime Arabia with the Opposite Coasts of Africa and Persia reduced from an Original Map by T. Dickinson, Chief Engineer, lithographed in the Chief Engineer's Office by Huskeljee E, and Kumroondeen E., Bombay 1st March 1856" (very large area map, 580 x 922 mm, coastline outlined in blue) 2) "Sketch of Rasool Khymah [Ra's al-Khaymah]", with original hand-colour; 3) "Plan of Bassadore Roads by H. H. Hewett, Midshipman"; 4) "Trigonometrical Plan of the Harbour of Grane or Koweit"; 5) "Sketch of the Island of Kenn"; 6) "Reduced Copy of the Chart of the Gulf of Persia". First edition of this remarkable compilation of reports on the Persian Gulf, submitted to the Government of Bombay between 1818 and 1854. Intended as a reference work for British officers, this book was on publication the most extensive account of the region then available, and remains an indispensable source for the history, peoples and topography of Bahrain, Kuwait, Qatar, and, in particular, what are now the United Arab Emirates: "Anyone working on the nineteenth-century history of Eastern Arabia and the Gulf comes across frequent references to it It served as a basic source for Lorimer in his Gazetteer of the Persian Gulf, Oman and Central Arabia. It contains, however, a great deal more information that Lorimer omitted, presumably for reasons of space. [For example,] the history of Abu Dhabi which Lorimer dealt with in just over four pages here receives thirty-four" (Robin Bidwell in his introduction to the 1985 reprint). The papers, 22 in total, were written during a formative period in Gulf history. In the beginning of the 19th century, ships belonging to the Qawasim tribe, the modern rulers of Sharjah, began to disrupt British communications with India. When a British ship was captured in 1818 less than 70 miles from Bombay an expedition was launched, leading to the seizure of Ra's al-Khaymah and other Qawasim strongholds. In 1830 the British and the shaykhs of the modern-day UAE concluded a "General Treaty of Peace", though the British realised that they would have to maintain a permanent presence in the region, and that "to act as policemen both topographical and background knowledge have always been required: the papers printed in [Thomas's] volume were designed to provide this for the men on the spot and for their masters in Bombay" (ibid.) Many of the reports stem from the first hydrographical survey of the Persian Gulf, conducted by the Bombay Marine between 1819 and 1829. These include the 100-page "Memoir Descriptive of the Navigation of the Gulf of Persia; with Brief Notices of the People Inhabiting its Shores and Islands" by Captain George Barnes Brucks, commander of the survey, together with several in-depth surveys by other officers including a description of Kuwait Harbour and Failaka Island. The most prolific contributor is Arnold Burrowes Kemball (1820-1908), an officer in the Bombay Artillery who was appointed assistant political resident in the Persian Gulf in 1842, and remained in the region until his retirement in 1878.

Er sprach 1815 als erster aus, daß sowohl in Mineralien als auch in künstlich hergestellten chemischen Verbindungen gewisse Bestandteile einander vertreten können, ohne daß ihre Kristallform sich merklich verändert. Seit 1821 studierte er die Entstehung der Porzellanerde und versuchte auch mit Erfolg Silikate zu synthetisieren. Hierbei beobachtete er unter anderem den Basenaustausch der Zeolithe und kam zu einer seiner bekanntesten Entdeckungen, der Herstellung von `Wasserglas`, das er nach dem Münchner Theaterbrand (1823) als Feuerschutzmittel und später auch als Malgrundlage (Verfahren der „Stereochromie" 1855) technisch anwandte. Schließlich konnte er ein wissenschaftliches Verfahren zur Erzeugung von `hydraulischem Mörtel` (Zement) ausarbeiten. Beobachtungen an der Kieselsäure und ihren Verbindungen führten ihn zur Aufstellung des Begriffes `Amorphismus`, wodurch er die Forschung auf das Gebiet der späteren Kolloidchemie lenkte. Fuchs bereicherte die Chemie durch neue analytische und präparative Arbeitsmethoden, die zum Teil noch heute in Gebrauch sind" (NDB V, 680). - Vorderer Buchinnendeckel mit hs. Notiz.

         Back to Methusela. Engravings by John Farleigh.

      19 cm x 28 cm. LVI, 260 pages. Original Hardcover with illustrated dustjacket in protective slip-case. Excellent condition limited edition with only very minor signs of external wear. George Bernard Shaw (26 July 1856 2 November 1950), known at his insistence simply as Bernard Shaw, was an Irish playwright, critic and polemicist whose influence on Western theatre, culture and politics extended from the 1880s to his death and beyond. He wrote more than sixty plays, including major works such as Man and Superman (1902), Pygmalion (1912) and Saint Joan (1923). With a range incorporating both contemporary satire and historical allegory, Shaw became the leading dramatist of his generation, and in 1925 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature. Back to Methuselah (A Metabiological Pentateuch) by George Bernard Shaw consists of a preface (An Infidel Half Century) and a series of five plays: In the Beginning: B.C. 4004 (In the Garden of Eden), The Gospel of the Brothers Barnabas: Present Day, The Thing Happens: A.D. 2170, Tragedy of an Elderly Gentleman: A.D. 3000, and As Far as Thought Can Reach: A.D. 31,920. All were written during 191820, published simultaneously by Constable (London) and Brentano's (New York) in 1921, and first performed in the United States in 1922 by the New York Theatre Guild at the old Garrick Theatre, New York.

Damaged spot at right upper corner, upper corners cut off. - Photograph from his journey to Algérie 1856-1858 Félix Jacques Antoine Moulin (1802 -1875). - A "specialist in académies" was how Félix Jacques Moulin listed himself in city business directories when he opened a photographic studio in Paris in 1851. Académies, or artists' studies, was the polite term for nude studies, which frequently bordered on the pornographic; that same year Moulin was arrested for the possession and sale of "obscene objects." He was sentenced to a month in prison and fined but was not deterred. He continued to sell académies to artists and other interested consumers. Moulin also purchased the rights from Roger Fenton's publisher to sell Fenton's Crimean War photographs. In 1856 Moulin traveled to Algeria, where he made city views and studies of the country's inhabitants. KEYWORDS:algeria/algiers/photo

         Monuments Antiques à Orange: Arc de Triomphe et Théatre

      1856. Publiés sous les Auspices de S. E. M. le Ministre d'Etat. VI, 89 pp. text, with very detailed descriptions and documentation, on the remains of the Roman theater and triumphal arch in the French city, extensive scholarly notes including bibliographic material, measurements of finds, extracts from literature on related works, engraved frontispiece, and 51 superb engraved plates (including one chromolithograph), most with guard sheets, showing general plans and views, details, elevations, sculptural decoration, contextual diagrams, conjectural reconstructions, etc. Some scattered foxing throughout, especially to text and to guard sheets, several pages with minor acid burn/loss to margin, spine shaken with some splitting along lower third, several pages with minor repairs along spine. Large folio. Leather-backed boards, raised spine. Some rubbing along extremities, minor splitting and leather loss along top and bottom edges of spine. Paris (Firmin Didot Frères) 1856. The Roman Theatre in Orange was built early in the 1st century AD and is one of the best-preserved Roman theatres to survive to this day. It served the Roman colony of Arausio, and was closed by official edict in AD 391 due to opposition by the Church to its "uncivilized spectacles". Over the centuries it was pillaged by the Visigoths, used as a defensive post during the Middle Ages, and served as a refuge for the town during the religious wars of the 16th century. There traditionally has been debate about the date of construction of the Arc de Triomphe, but current research dates it to the reign of Augustus, between 27 BC and AD 14. It was built on the former Via Agrippa to honor the veterans of the Gallic Wars, and was later reconstructed by emperor Tiberius to celebrate the victories of Germanicus over the German tribes in Rhineland. It was built into the town's walls during the Middle Ages to guard the northern entry points of the town.

Overall a very good copy.ìFriedrich List [1789-1846] is one of the earliest and most severe critics of the classical school of political economy. He denounced Adam Smith and his disciples as the ëcosmopolitan schoolí and held that universal free trade was an ideal that could be achieved only in the far distant future. For the time being, he argued, each nation should foster the development of its own manufacturers by import duties and even outright prohibitions. Only by such means could countries like Germany, Russia and the United States ever hope to achieve the industrial efficiency that would enable them to compete on equal terms with Britainî (Blaug, Great Economists before Keynes, pp. 129-131).ìDespite the influence of Alexander Hamilton, the seeds of ëThe National System of Political Economyí are to be found in the romantic theories of Adam M¸ller (1779-1829). From him List derived his opposition to Adam Smith and the principle of free-trade. He denied Smithís parallel between the economic good of the individual and the state, and saw in Smithís ëfree tradeí unprincipled private advantage to the detriment of the state. To List, the nation was a separate unit standing between the concepts of the individual and humanity as a whole; its unity consisting of common language, traditions, culture and constitution. It followed that its wealth lay not in the capacity for commercial international exchange, as Smith held, bu in the development of its own economic and productive resources. Thus, the good of the national economy must override that of the individual. From this followed Listís theory of industrial politics, which was based on an alternating pattern of free trade and controls determined always by the final good of the state...These views coincided so exactly with the reawakening of German nationalism that Listís book caused a great sensation when it was published, and it remained for seventy years the theoretic gospel of the advocates of protectionist tariffs in Germany, Britain and the United Statesî (Printing and the Mind of Man).Einaudi.

He was, for a period in the 1870s, resident Ottoman Officer of Health for the Red Sea and is favourably mentioned in Doughty's seminal work, Arabia Deserta. His narrative of a journey through Syria and Palestine is unusually detailed and benefits from local knowledge not present in the mass of 19th century Holy Land travel narratives. Especially useful are the passages on the problems caused by Ottoman rule, which the author deems to have been the primary cause of the Crimean War. RÖhricht, 2480.Rare.
