Born in Bell Busk, near Gargrave, Yorkshire, Slingsby first visited Norway in 1872 and fell in love with the country. He has been called the discoverer of the Norwegian mountains, and the father of Norwegian mountaineering (insofar as he seems to be the first who actively pursued climbing in Norway and was the first person on several mountains). Together with Norway's early skilled mountain climber Kristian Bing (1862-1935), he is considered to have been a pioneer explorer of Jostedalsbreen, the largest glacier in continental Europe. Slingsby is perhaps most famous for being the first on „Storen", or Store Skagastølstind (2405 m) in 1876, the third highest mountain in Norway. It was considered impossible to climb then, but Slingsby defied popular notion and climbed the mountain, for the last part alone. His crossing of the 1,550-meter-high (5,800 ft) Keiser Pass, Norway, on skis in 1880 also helped inspire the sport of ski mountaineering. He also spoke and wrote strongly about several other mountains for example Slogen. His classic book on climbing in Norway, Norway: the Northern Playground, was first published in 1904 and republished in 1941. A new edition was released in 2003. The latest edition was published in March 2014. Slingsby was an honorary member of Norsk Tindeklub and of the Norwegian Trekking Association. He had five children; the youngest, Eleanor Winthrop Young, was herself a climber and a co-founder of the Pinnacle Club, a women's climbing association. Cecil died on August 23, 1929 in a nursing home at Hurstpierpoint, in East Sussex. He is buried in the churchyard at Carleton-in-Craven. (Wikipedia)

A few stray scuffs to spines at heads and heels. Complete with portrait and all maps and charts. A very nice set in its second edition, in excellent condition overall. "Although as biased as Macaulay's History of England, and less scholarly than Mommsen's Roman History, Grote's History of Greece can be bracketed with these two works. Like them, it was received with universal acclimation. (It) shaped the European conception of the subject matter throughout the nineteenth century , and still merits respect as a monument of industrious Victorian scholarship." - Printing and the Mind of Man, for the 1846 first edition. .

         Ophthalmoskopischer Hand-Atlas.

      Wien, K. K. Hof- und Staatsdeuckerei, 1869.. Crown quarto. (265 x 190 mm). Pp. xviii, 236, (2) publisher's catalogue. Plus 29 colour lithographed plates with a total of 128 figures. Hardcover, bound in contemporary full cloth, discoloured, spine gilt, corner-tips and spine-ends trifle rubbed, inner hinges tender, stamp chemically effaced from title-page by expert hand, two plates with short tear at fore-margin slightly touching image, discreetly closed by expert hand and are practically invisible. In a very good condition, very clean interior and plates. ~ First edition. Exeedingly scarce. Eduard Jaeger Ritter von Jaxtthal (1818-1884). Jaeger's atlas greatly advanced ophthalmoscopy, and was unsurpassed for many years. The chromolithographed plates were based on his remarkable fundus paintings, which were accomplished in sittings which might run to over one hundred hours per painting. The original paintings are now housed at the University of Pennsylvania. Jaeger's atlas is a noted example of how 19th Century ophthalmology embraced new printing technologies and ingenious uses of the book, enabling students far and wide to benefit from the famous ophthalmologist's research. A second edition appeared in 1890. It was then translated into English as "Jaeger's Atlas of Diseases of the Ocular Fundus". Becker 206; Garrison-Morton 5904 "A fine atlas"; Keys & Rucker 888; Geschichte der Augenheilkunde, Vol. 7, P. 123 (1918); "Ophthalmology 1700-1900: Celebrating the Collection of Jerry F. Donin, M.D." (2015).

         Our American Cousin: A Drama, in 3 Acts

      [New York:] Printed, But Not Published, 1869 - 12mo, modern blue paper boards, black leather label on the upper board, gilt lettering, 46 pages. The most famous play (of many) by Tom Taylor (1817-1880) and arguably the most famous play of the 19th century: it was being performed at Ford's Theater, Washington, D.C., on April 14, 1865, when midway through Act III John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln - thus immortalizing a farcical comedy which otherwise would have been long since forgotten. The American rights to Our American Cousin were purchased by New York theater owner Laura Keene in 1858. It was immensely popular and was still being performed more than ten years later, but there was no printed version of it until this one in 1869. Keene had shrewdly stated on the title-page that it was "Printed, but not published" - a step taken to protect her valuable rights from unscrupulous theater owners who could produce plays that had been "published" because copyright laws did not give them adequate protection. On the verso of the title-page is list of the cast at the first performance at Ms. Keene's theater on October 15, 1858, which included Joseph Jefferson. Contemporary manuscript notes on the front blank, listing other plays by Tom Taylor. Paper a little browned and foxed; very good copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

         Tröltsch on the Ear: Treatise on the Diseases of the Ear, including the Anatomy of the Organ.

      New York, William Wood 1869 - Octavo. Pp. xx, 565, (1) Errata, (1) publisher's ad. With 40 wood-engraved illustrations. Hardcover, bound in the original publisher's purple full cloth, gilt lettering to spine, sides ruled in blind, brown chalked endpapers, inner hinges partly cracked but remain very firm, some wear to spine-ends and corner-tips, old attractive bookplate tipped-in onto first free endpaper. In a very good condition, fine interior. ~ Second English ("American") edition, translated from the fourth German edition and edited by John Roosa. Comprising of 31 Lectures. Anton Friedrich von Tröltsch (1829-1890), pioneer of otology. Professor of Otology at Würzburg, where renowned otologists Friedrich Bezold (1842-1908) and Abraham Kuhn (1838-1900) were his students. He invented the modern otoscope and devised the first modern mastoid operation which was first performed in England in 1868 by Hinton. Tröltsch was a co-founder of the Archiv für Ohrenheilkunde. In his Translator's Preface, Roosa considers this edition a "new work". The translation has been liberal in part - Roosa has added material of his own and in several cases expressed his own, different opinions. He took care, however, to enclose his material within parentheses indicated by his initials. In 1873 Roosa has published his own version of "Practical Treatise on the Diseases of the Ear, including the Anatomy of the Organ". Extremely rare, so much so in the original binding with the title "Tröltsch on the Ear". [Attributes: Hard Cover]

First edition of the chronicle of the elaborate festivities given for the inauguration of the Suez Canal (Qanat al-Suwais), opened in November 1869 after ten years of construction work - an event attended by the most prestigious occidental figures, finely illustrated by Riou, the Khedive's official painter.The painter Riou also signed the plates of the second work: a detailed account of the canal construction by Marius Fontane, secretary to Lesseps. 500 copies of Fontane's work were printed, with 200 reserved for the Khedive Ismail, of which this is one. As the Khedive objected to the preface of Fontane's work, which gave credit for the canal to Lesseps, he had the relevant parts removed: the frontispiece portrait of Lesseps, the preface and the final six quires (included the accompanying plates 21-25).Plates slightly foxed, otherwise in very good condition.

         The Man Who Laughs [L'Homme qui Rit]

      New York: Appleton, 1869. First Edition. cloth. Near fine. 1st edition in English, preceding all. A tour de force, from Hugo's pen, written in the last year of his exile. Precedes the Dana Estes edition, the Caldwell edition, the London edition, and all the others. Original grass green cloth, 1 of 3 colors published concurrently. Pale yellow endpapers, and though also bound with coated yellow endpapers there is no priority and there is no doubt that our book was issued with these endpapers. A few fox marks to the prelims, but the text is clean, 2 specks of wear at the tips, 2 small cloth spots, else near fine, and reasonably bright, outstanding condition for this title. Scarce this nice, despite the low price. A whirlwind indictment of the aristocracy, a satire of sorts, but outwardly a love story, woven through with horror, nearly from the outset. The second chapter, fairly faithfully, illuminates the Comprachicos, a secret, nomadic, criminal society that roamed Europe, financed largely by the extorted purchase of babies, their satirical disfigurement by villainous surgeons (stunted growth, deformed faces, malformed bones), their training as mountebanks, and finally, their sale (typically after reaching maturity), to Lords (as court fools or pages), or to traveling sideshows (circuses of the grotesque).

         The Yachtville Boys

      Boston: Henry Hoyt, 1869. First Edition. cloth. Very good. 1st edition of the 3rd baseball novel ever, preceded by Oldfellow's Uncle Nat (1865), and Everett's Changing Base (1868), but The Yachtville Boys cuts some path too. It's the first baseball novel written by a woman, and the first one with a frontispiece illustrating the game being played, although the plate was engraved by an artist who had never seen baseball, so the view looks more like a deformed cricket match, even though the detailed account of the game, as played out in the text, leaves no doubt that the boys are contesting American baseball and no other sport. The Yachtville Boys is also the scarcest of the 3, with just a single defective 1st edition sold at auction in the last 50 years (1993). OCLC verifies that scarcity, locating only 7 copies in libraries worldwide (Wisconsin, Notre Dame, Kansas, Brown, Yale, U. C. L. A. and The American Antiquarian Society). Publisher's cloth, some rubs and wear to the spine tips and corners, (see photograph), inner paper hinges invisibly strengthened, but very good, sound, and with no major flaws, a superior copy of this book. Watch city on city (or country vs. country) team sports, and it's easy to forget that something higher is behind them all. Something so refined and cultured as to defy comparison. These games are no less than, a civilized substitute for war.

         Charles Lyell Autographed Letter Signed.

      - Autographed Signed Letter from Charles Lyell, the father of modern geology. It reads, " Wed. Nov. 24, 1869 Sir James Colvile, I have just heard from our friend Dr. Hooker that you wish to meet me tomorrow (Thursday Nov. 25th) at the Athenaeum in the afternoon. I will be there at 1/2 past 3 ockl. P.M. & tell the porter where I am to be found. Most truly yours Charles Lyell." In near fine condition. Double matted and framed opposite a photograph of Lyell. The entire piece measures 14 inches by 17 inches. Sir Charles Lyell was a Scottish geologist who popularized the revolutionary work of James Hutton. He is best known as the author of Principles of Geology, which presented uniformitarianism-the idea that the Earth was shaped by the same scientific processes still in operation today-to the broad general public. Principles of Geology also challenged theories popularized by Georges Cuvier, which were the most accepted and circulated ideas about geology in Europe at the time. His scientific contributions included an explanation of earthquakes, the theory of gradual "backed up-building" of volcanoes, and in stratigraphy the division of the Tertiary period into the Pliocene, Miocene, and Eocene. He also coined the currently-used names for geological eras, Palaeozoic, Mesozoic and Cenozoic. He incorrectly conjectured that icebergs may be the emphasis behind the transport of glacial erratics, and that silty loess deposits might have settled out of flood waters. Lyell, following deistic traditions, favored an indefinitely long age for the earth, despite geological evidence suggesting an old but finite age. He was a close friend of Charles Darwin, and contributed significantly to Darwin's thinking on the processes involved in evolution. He helped to arrange the simultaneous publication in 1858 of papers by Darwin and Alfred Russel Wallace on natural selection, despite his personal religious qualms about the theory. He later published evidence from geology of the time man had existed on Earth. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]
