Beschreibung:

Folio (400 x 300 mm), comprising three fine albumen prints of the moon by Rutherfurd, mounted on card as issued, and six further plates on five sheets, several folding (see below); loose as issued in the publisher's portfolio, red cloth over bevelled boards blocked in blind, with gilt title on upper cover with ornaments, 'The Moon Rutherfurd and Proctor. A. Brothers, Manchester', binding worn with some discolouration and fading and small areas of corners and edges repaired, remains of ties.First edition, exceptionally rare, of the large-format version of Rutherfurd's great lunar photographs (they were also published in octavo in Proctor's The Moon: her motions, aspect, scenery, and physical condition, 1873). Lewis Rutherfurd (1816-1892) was a pioneering American astronomer; he constructed the first refracting telescope designed solely for astronomical photography. 'Using 11- and 13-inch (279- and 330-mm) refractors in an observatory located in the garden of his Manhattan residence [Rutherfurd was able] to obtain photographs of the Moon able to bear enlargement to a diameter of 21 inches' (Sheehan and Dobbins, Epic moon p 133). 'Rutherfurd tried various expedients to obtain better photographs before he completely omitted the visual element from the telescope. Starting in December 1864 he employed a new 11.5-inch objective lens useful solely for photography. The resulting pictures of the moon were widely admired' (DSB). Proctor called Rutherfurd 'the greatest lunar photographer of the age'.The photographs show the full moon, and two half moons, illuminated on the left and right. In addition, there are further printed maps and charts, which the work was issued with. These comprise 'General-Karte der sichtbaren Seite der Mondoberflaeche .' based on Beer and Mädler, by J. H. Mädler, Berlin, 1837; 'Chart of The Moon on the Stereographic Projection', plate XVIII, by R. A. Proctor; 'Map of the Moon, from the Mappa Selenographica of Beer and Maedler', plate XVII, by T.W. Webb; 'Bullialdus and the surrounding region. By Schmidt, of Athens'; 'Lunar Landscapes - "Full" Earth' and 'Lunar Landscapes - "New" Earth', plates XXI and XXII, white on black, views of earth as from the moon, both illustrations on one sheet. Museum of the History of Science, Oxford, item 12962, has identical contents to this portfolio except that their copy includes a duplicate of the last-named print. The copy at St Andrews is identical to ours; the National Maritime Museum copy is also identical apart from missing one of the photographs.Gernsheim, Incunabula 572; Whitaker, Mapping and naming the moon 88d; see Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers II pp 997-8; DSB XII pp 36-7 and Face of the moon 19. Of the following copies recorded by OCLC, some contain only the three photographs and not the charts detailed above: Yale (missing); Wesleyan, Pittsburg, Columbia, Illinois, and S. Baptist Theological Seminary. Buchnummer des Verkäufers
