  • Publisher: London: John Norton and John Bill, 1606.
London: John Norton and John Bill, 1606. 2 parts in one volume. Folio (18 x 12 inches). 2 hand-colored engraved title-pages, arms of James I, epitaph, portrait, small globe on final verso, and 157 (of 161) hand-colored double-page engraved maps, some HEIGHTENED IN GOLD, the "Life" of Ortelius here bound after the dedication (without 4 maps, Koeman numbers 19, 71, 152, 154 - two from the main atlas “Valentia” and “Italie”; and two from the “Parergon” “Tempe Thessalica” and the second map of the “Foundation and Order of the Germane Empire in the West”, some expert marginal repairs to the title-page and dedication, preliminary leaves and upper outer corners of first 10 maps, occasional minor spots or areas of abrasion, repaired tear along fold of map 157, repaired loss at edge of final leaf). Late 17th-century English panelled black goatskin, elaborately tooled in gilt and blind, both covers with triple border enclosing owner Elizabeth Cairnes's name, cornerpieces incorporating acorn tools, further ornament with urns and flowerheads (expertly rebacked to style). Provenance: front cover gilt-lettered Elizabeth Cairnes (d.1731), wife of Sir Alexander Cairnes; and by descent, through her granddaughter, the wife of the 1st Lord Rossmore, to the 7th Lord Rossmore. THE RARE ENGLISH EDITION OF ORTELIUS'S "THEATRUM", based on the Latin edition of Ortelius's atlas, published by Vrients in 1603. Before sending the plates from Antwerp to England, the versos were erased, the English text then being printed at the Eliot's Court Press by Bradwood. The likely translator of the text from Latin into English is William Bedwell (1561-1632). With 161 maps and further five engraved plates, the English "Theatrum" was "the tallest volume printed in England up to that date... also the largest collection of intaglio prints in a single book yet published in England" (Skelton). Truusje Goedings, renowned expert in Dutch colourists of the 17th-century, writes of this copy: "Very de-luxe coloured copy, contemporary coloured and heightened with gold and silver by one hand. The printer's borders, initials and vignettes in the text were also coloured, these more sober. Gold has been applied to several maps, including the lettering on some. Vrients took prints of the copperplates himself for the whole English edition of ca. 160 maps and plates (Parergon and Add. included), and sent these to the London publisher Norton. Norton printed his English version of the text on verso, and had all maps bound into one volume, creating herewith the tallest volume with the largest amount of prints existing at the time in England. Coloured copies will have been very costly, let alone de-luxe coloured copies. Therefore, Norton will have organized the colouring in England. It was too costly to have it done in advance in Flanders. He will have arranged a master-model, a good coloured copy obtained from Vrients in loose sheets. The colouring of this de-luxe copy is clearly based on the Flemish style, with full colouring in warm hues variating in transparancy and combinations, though it is less monumental and somewhat more precise. This might be due to regional preferences but also to a slightly less routined, so a more careful handling, which gives this colouring an extra value. Evident English traits are the brighter and lighter use of pigments, and especially the use of a different green pigment in a brighter hue. This green is often seen in coloured maps of English provenance. It has been preserved much better than the somewhat heavier green applied in the Dutch Ortelius-editions that often turned into brownish yellow. The warm colour schemes and handling of the colours indicate a colouring around the time of publishing - and not in the time of the actual private binding dating from the end 17th century" (Truusje Goedings). "All the elements of the modern atlas were brought to publication in Abraham Ortelius' "Theatrum Orbis Terrarum". This substantial undertaking assembled... the best available maps of the world by the most renowned and up-to-date geographers... each of Ortelius' maps was engraved specifically for his atlas according to uniform formats" (Shirley). Ortelius first published his "Theatrum…", arguably the first atlas in the modern sense of the word, in 1570, with 70 seventy copper engravings on fifty-three double-folio pages. A businessman native to Antwerp, Ortelius compiled the best existing maps, re-engraved them on a standardized format, and included them with the text in one volume. But, by 1570, he had been dealing in maps and charts for more than twenty years. The death of Ortelius' father in 1535, who had been a wealthy merchant, seems to have placed his family in financial difficulties. When Ortelius was as young as 19 he is recorded as having joined the Guild of St. Luke as 'afsetter' "or colourist of maps and prints. He seems to have reached a very advanced level of skill in this craft, as some customers continued to insist on buying atlases coloured by him personally at a time when he had already developed into a publisher and cartographer/merchant… Ortelius [also] became a trader in books, prints and maps. Much of this trading had to do with the house of Plantin [subsequently publisher of the 'Theatrum']…Soon he was attending the book fair in Frankfurt to buy and sell books, maps and prints for others as well as for himself. He first met Gerard Mercator there in 1554, which marked the state of a life-long professional relationship and personal friendship… " (van den Broecke page 14). Through his work Ortelius became quite the cosmopolitan, he travelled extensively to France, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, Hungary, Italy, England and Ireland, and as a result had command of several languages. With the publication of the "Theatrum" came tremendous success and wealth. Giving full credit to the original cartographers, the "Theatrum" was so successful that it was printed three times in 1570 alone. In 1574 Ortelius retained the position of Royal Cosmographer to Phillip II and was given a fine gold necklace, worth 1000 ducats. Between 1570 and 1612 the atlas was published in 42 editions and the 7 languages: Latin, German, Flemish, French, Spanish, English and Italian. From the distinguished library of Elizabeth Cairnes, the wife of Sir Alexander Cairnes (d.1732), the 1st Baronet, a banker in Dublin and London, and Member of Parliament for County Monaghan (1707-27) and the borough of Monaghan (1727-32). Sister of Sir Nathanial Gould, Lady Cairnes was evidently a notable bibliophile; her bookplate was engraved by Louis du Guernier around 1715, and has been cited as an early example of allegorical bookplates.

[New York]: J. C. Foreman, 1879. 1st printing (presumed). Self wrappers. Slight age-toning to paper; creases where its been folded, remnants of tape repair to fold, overall VG.. Single sheet folded once to make four pages. Engraved headpiece, and small engravings in text for ads. 14-1/4" x 10-3/4" Playbill for an early American performance of "Engaged" during the successful Poole & Donnelly era at the Grand Opera House in New York City. William Schwenk Gilbert was a prolific English playwright and dramatist. This play was published during the most successful decade of his career. In 1907 Gilbert was the first dramatist to be knighted, and during his fifty years as a playwright he was credited with raising the standards on the English stage for both the playwright and the actor, his use of the Comic was so unique, the term 'Gilbertarian' was coined for his work, which has never been truly successfully imitated. "Engaged" opened in October, 1877, was well received on both the English and American stages, and is still performed today. It's cited as Gilbert's most popular stage work aside from the Gilbert and Sullivan comic operas. This production cast the famous Agnes Booth, wife of Junius Brutus Booth, in the role of Belinda Treherne.

  • Publisher: Charles L. Webster & Company
New York: Charles L. Webster & Company, 1887. First Edition. Hardcover. Octavo. xiv, 678 pages. Fine. A few rubs to extremities, a small stain to medal stamped on upper board. Hinges sound, endpapers not split.. Black & white plates, maps, engravings. McClellan's posthumously published memoir of the Civil War, accompanied by a Brady CDV photograph of Gen. McClellan with his autograph attached to its lower margin. McClellan's memoir, honestly, is mostly McClellan still trying (20 years later) to explain how his brilliance and ability were not appreciated during those early months of the war. While Lincoln's martyrdom definitely skewed his historical standing, at least initially, one does wonder if McClellan gave a second thought at all to writing that "My relations with Mr. Lincoln were generally very pleasant, and I seldom had trouble with him when we could meet face to face. The difficulty always arose behind my back. I believe that he liked me personally, AND CERTAINLY HE WAS ALWAYS MUCH INFLUENCED BY ME WHEN WE WERE TOGETHER (emphasis ours)." Wow. Anyway, the important parts of McClellan's memoir are his treatise on the causes of the war, his autobiographical material, and his narrative of his own substantive role from summer 1861 through his removal from command after Antietam in November 1862. And the signed CDV is nice too.

  • Publisher: Lippincott / Brentano's / Viking / Crowell
NY and Philadelphia: Lippincott / Brentano's / Viking / Crowell, 1946. Hardcover. Very Good/good. In addition to the books listed, there are 4 Christmas cards, probably from the 1940s, from the Tinkers, each with an illustration by Tinker, and a sketch of what looks like a goblin, done in pencil and signed by Tinker, 6.5 x 5.25 inches. 'The Small and Tall Man' is good with some restoration to spine; 'The Rose and the Ring' has light soil to covers, very good; 'Barefoot and the Friendly Road' is a very good copy in used and shelfworn jacket; 'Legend of Sleepy Hollow' is very good in lightly shelfworn and soiled slipcase. Tinker began his career as a prolific illustrator but his work as creative director at a NY advertising agency began to take more of his time. He was born in Pittsburgh in 1906, and these came from a house in Pittsburgh where the owner's parents were friends with the Tinkers.

Four folding printed tables & numerous woodcut diagrams in the text. 6 p.l. (two of these preliminary leaves are mis-bound at end), 188 pp., 4 leaves of errata at end. Small 4to, attractive antique calf, panelled in gilt, gilt fleurons in each corner, spine gilt. Zurich: J.J. Bodmer, 1659. First edition and an absolutely complete copy of this rare and noteworthy mathematical book; our copy has all four folding printed tables (most copies described in OCLC seem to have only three) and an extra leaf of errata not present in the Macclesfield copy (sale, Sotheby's London, 25 Oct. 2005, lot 1705, £12,000 including premium). In this book on page 73, Rahn first introduced the symbol "÷" in print "as a sign of division; (2) the Archimedean spiral for involution; (3) the double epsilon for evolution; (4) the use of capital letters B, D, E, for given numbers, and small letters a, b, for unknown numbers; (5) the * for multiplication; (6) the first use of ∴ for 'therefore'; (7) the three-column arrangement of which the left column contains the directions, the middle the numbers of the lines, the right the results of the operations."-Cajori, A History of Mathematical Notations, I, pp. 211-12 & see illus. on p. 213 (& see sections 205, 208, 232, 237, 266, 304, 307, 328, 333, 341, 385, & 386 for Rahn's other contributions, all of which appear in the present book). We know that Leibniz looked upon Rahn's book favorably, describing it as "an elegant algebra." While Rahn's use of the modern division sign was not immediately adopted in Europe, in England it met a very favorable reception, with John Wallis and other English writers employing it. Rahn (1622-76), came from a prominent Zurich family and had a major role in the administration of his native city. About 1654, Rahn came to know John Pell (1611-85), then a representative of the Commonwealth at Zurich, and engaged the English mathematician as a tutor in 1657, meeting every Friday night. While some of the advances in notation in this book might have derived from Pell, "without further evidence, it is best to assume that there was joint responsibility for these innovations and that Pell's contemporary reputation as a mathematician, and particularly as an algebraist, was not unearned."-D.S.B., X, p. 495. Fine crisp copy. Old library stamp on title. ❧ Cajori, A History of Mathematics, p. 140. Smith, History of Mathematics, I, p. 412 & II, pp. 406, 411-12, 431n, & 474. For Pell and his relationship with Rahn, see D.S.B., X, pp. 495-96.

  • Publisher: H.H. Hardesty
Chicago, Illinois: H.H. Hardesty, 1875. Folio. 109pp. Complete. Rebound in 1/4 black leather and fine pebbled cloth wit original decorative outer board cloth laid over. Some unsightly staining, resembling excess binder's glue to front, near spine. Prominent area of dampstain to pervasive lower portion of interior contents. Section of loss from lower portion of "Table of Contents" leaf. A few tape repairs about torn leaves. Save for the mystery blemish to the front, a competent, attractive rebinding of an otherwise well handled, about good only, copy. An original 1875 Hardesty atlas produced for Hancock County, Ohio (county seat Findlay). This copy in a competent modern rebinding with some dampstaining marring much of the interior though with some compelling pencil fashion sketches of 1920's womens fashion to versos of map plates and blank endpapers. With a folding GENERAL RAILWAY MAP OF THE UNITED STATES AND CANADA (Rand, Mcnally) in front, a full page MAP OF OHIO: 1874 (Hardesty) ; 26 additional hand-colored lithograph maps of the county, its individual townships, and municipalities, and 16 detailed, line-drawn lithograph plates of prominent landmarks, farmsteads, town and city views, etc... The Hardesty Co. of Chicago was a prominent late-19th Century maker of similar atlases, which appear to have been sold by traveling agents, covering particularly insurgent counties in Ohio, Indiana, and West Virginia. This copy with some obvious imperfetions, though rebound in an equally obvious attempt at preservation. Not without flaw, though a deeply appealing copy of a scarce atlas and unequaled record of Hancock County prior to its oil and natural gas booms in the decade following.

FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPS OF THE LANDMARK CLONING OF THE FIRST MAMMAL, DOLLY. British biologists Sir Ian Wilmut and Keith Campbell announced the cloning of Dolly in this paper, the first account of their efforts and research. Considered one of the most significant scientific breakthroughs in history, Dolly's birth (and survival until 2003) proved that mammals could be cloned from adult somatic cells through the process of nuclear transfer - essentially, adult cells could reprogram themselves into a new being. "Working at the Roslin Institute [part of the University of Edinburgh] in the mid-1990s, Keith Campbell, a coworker of Wilmut's "found a way to turn back the clock of a mature, differentiated cell. He deprived cultured udder (mammary) cells from adult ewes of nutrients for five days, forcing the cells into a 'sleeping' state in which many of their genes shut down. Wilmut and Campbell fused each quiescent mammary cell with a normal sheep egg cell from which the nucleus had been removed, and the cytoplasm in the egg cell somehow reprogrammed the adult cell's genes so that the combined cell could produce offspring cells able to differentiate into many different types. When the fused cell began to develop into an embryo, the scientists implanted it into the uterus of another ewe. "A lamb produced by this method (one of 277 attempts) was born from the mammary cell of a six-year-old Finn-Dorset ewe on July 5, 1996. Wilmut's group named her Dolly, after country-western singer Dolly Parton" (Yount, A to Z Biologists, 334). Transferring the cell nucleus from an adult into a developing egg cell that had had its cell nucleus removed - nuclear transfer -- meant that Dolly had, essentially, three mothers (one provided via the egg, another via DNA, and the third carried the cloned embryo to term. Wilmut and Campbell's work, cloning an entire mammal from a somatic cell, has since been replicated with other mammals. Scientifically and socially we are only beginning to investigate the full implications, biological, philosophical and ethical of their breakthrough. ALSO INCLUDED: Also included in this issue is 'An Udder Way of Making Lambs' by Colin Stewart. Stewart was asked to write essentially an 'editorial' on Wilmut and Campbell's work; in it Stewart both comments on the creation of Dolly and some of the questions raised by the science. CONDITION & DETAILS: First edition in original wraps housed in a custom made clamshell case, gilt-lettered at the spine. Complete. 4to. 11 x 8.5 inches (275 x 213mm). The wraps feature a photograph of Dolly on the cover. Address label, very slight scuffing at the edges. Tightly bound and bright and clean throughout. Near fine condition.

  • Format: Hardcover
First edition. Faint crease to the edges of a couple of pages, still fine in fine, price-clipped dustwrapper with a tiny nick at the corner of the crown. Signed by the author. Laid in is an approximately 5" x 7" black and white photo of James Cagney, Signed by the actor in light green ink. Cagney starred in the 1953 Raoul Walsh film, about a clever and ruthless Southern politician, based in part on Huey Long (Langley's book preceded Warren's *All the King's Men*, but the latter was filmed first). Cagney's whole family was involved in this film: one brother was the producer, another was the story editor, and his sister had an important supporting role (indeed her character shoots Cagney's character). A very scarce wartime book, seldom found in this condition.

First Edition/First Printing of this exceedingly rare piece of literature. A Lion is in the Streets went through five printings and was eventually made into a film under the same name in 1953. Jacket has some tears along the top of the front and back cover. Dust jacket has some tearing and chipping. Cover has some rubbing. Name of previous owner on front free end paper in ink. Hard to find with a dust jacket. $3- price is still present on DJ. McGraw Hill Book Co up to the year of 1956 showed no additional printings if it was a First edition.
