        Six Introductory Lectures, to Courses of Lectures Upon the Institutes and Practice of Medicine, Delivered to the University of Pennsylvania

      Philadelphia: John Conrad & Co, 1801. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine. 8vo, 168 pp. Contemporary leather boards, rebacked with new leather spine; endpapers replaced. Signature of Luther Guiteau (likely the Trenton, NY physician of that name [b. 1778], great-uncle of Garfield assassin Charles Guiteau) on the title page. Minor foxing, normal wear to boards; near fine. "Writing prolifically over nearly half a century, Rush was the first American physician to become widely known at home and abroad....[He] moved medicine toward diagnoses and treatment regimens that were more comprehensible and manageable. He also encouraged the use of hypotheses in medicine (although he showed considerably less rigor about testing them experimentally)....Rush's stature elevated the study of medicine in the United States. His position as educator gave him far-reaching influence in the American medical profession" (ANB). This work consists of a collection of lectures on medicine that were particularly well received by his students, and which they asked to have published. Among the topics covered are the relationship between observation and reasoning in medicine, the connection between physical condition and intellectual activity, the vices and virtues of physicians, and factors that have impeded progress in medical science and practice.

There were four supplementary volumes published in future years, but this is the seminal work to introduce Hedwig’s ideas and examples for classification of mosses. (Nissen, 830; Pritzel 3885)

        VIDA DE SAN FELIPE DE JESUS PROTOMARTIR DEL JAPON Y PATRON DE SU PATRIA MEXICO. SE GRAVO EL ANO DE 1801. MONTES DE OCA LA INVENTO I GRABO.

      Mexico. 1801. - Engraved title, and thirty engraved plates. One plate printed in sepia with some hand coloring. Small quarto. Modern Mexican calf, spine gilt. Internally clean. Fine. Series of thirty beautiful and, for that period, advanced engravings by Montes de Oca depicting the life of the patron saint of Mexico, San Felipe de Jesus. Born in Mexico City in 1575, he travelled to Manila, where he became a priest. In a series of delicately rendered engravings of real power, this work depicts the life of Felipe de Jesus at full length. The first twelve plates depict his early life and call to God. The next ten plates depict his shipwreck in Japan, near Nagasaki, his persecutors, and death by crucifixion at the hands of the Japanese. The last five plates record his beatification in 1627 and miracles attributed to him. Montes de Oca was a major figure among engravers and book illustrators in the fourth quarter of the 18th and the first quarter of the 19th centuries, and this VIDA DE SAN FELIPE DE JESUS is his finest, most ambitious and most extensive work. This work is entirely engraved, including the explanatory text below each well conceived and well executed illustration, making it the first book printed in Mexico not from moveable type. Many copies appear lacking one or two plates, but this has the full complement of thirty plus the engraved titlepage. An uncommon and lovely work. Medina records another later edition, but this first edition is unrecorded. MEDINA, MEXICO 9461 (another ed). PALAU 363045. SABIN 76028.

        VOYAGES AU MONT-PERDU ET DANS LA PARTIE ADJACENTE DES HAUTES-PYRÉNÉES.

      1801 - Paris, Belin, 1801. In-8 (125 X 202) demi-basane fauve à petits coins, dos lisse orné d'une double chainette dorée en place des nerfs, fleuron doré dans les compartiments, pièce de titre vert lierre (reliure de l'époque) ; IV pages de titre et sommaire, 392 pages, 6 planches dépliantes. Ex-libris manuscrit ancien sur le titre : «Amade fils ». ÉDITION ORIGINALE de cet IMPORTANT LIVRE PYRÉNÉISTE, «ouvrage capital» selon Béraldi. Il s'agit du récit des explorations de Ramond de Carbonnières dans le massif du Mont-Perdu. L'ouvrage est bien complet des SIX PLANCHES dépliantes, dont un frontispice. Elles sont dessinées par Ramond et gravées sur vélin fort parBaltard, à l'exception d'une planche de fossiles dessinée par Maréchal et gravée par Jourdan. UN DES PREMIERS EXPLORATEURS DES HAUTES-PYRÉNÉES : avec le développement du thermalisme au XIXe siècle, de nombreux poètes, peintres et écrivains viennent dans les Pyrénées, tombant sous leur charme. Avant eux, Louis François Élisabeth Ramond de Carbonnières fait figure de précurseur. D'origine alsacienne, le jeune homme proche du courant «Sturm und Drang» se passionne vite pour la haute montagne. En 1787, Ramond accompagne le cardinal de Rohan qui se rend aux eaux thermales de Barèges et en profite pour parcourir une grande partie des Pyrénées centrales. Passionné de botanique, il recense plus de huit cent espèces dont une fleur, la «ramondia», qui portera son nom. Enseignant ensuite les sciences naturelles à l'école centrale de Tarbes, il répertorie dans ses carnets plantes et minéraux. Étudiant les problèmes d'altimétrie, il fait de nombreux croquis de montagnes, de sommets. Une de ses promenades favorites est de grimper au pic du Midi afin de voir le «massif calcaire» du Marboré. En 1797, il monte une première expédition au mont Perdu par le lac Glacé. Cinq ans plus tard, le téméraire ascensionniste entreprend une autre expédition et atteint en 1802, pour la première fois, le sommet du mont Perdu. «Servis par un style admirable, les écrits pyrénéens de Ramond demeurent une pièce majeure des livres pyrénéistes» (Claude Dendaletche). BEL EXEMPLAIRE en reliure d'époque. («Rare», Dendaletche, 1514 - «Peu commun et très recherché», Labarère, 1228 - «Peu courant et très recherché», Perret, 3566 - «Livre capital», Béraldi, "Cent Ans", I, 49 à 56 - "Gazette Drouot 2013", n°27, "Le pionnier du pyrénéisme", page 77).

        Traite de Mineralogie

      Paris: Chez Louis, 1801 Complete with all errata and half titles present. Woodcut printer?'s device on each title. Text volumes bound in contemporary quarter calf and marbled boards, with vellum corners, gilt spine with morocco labels, hinges slightly tender with the exception of volume 2 which has been rebacked; interiors exceptionally clean, some pages unopened. Approbation leaf in volume 1 signed ?"Louie?" in a contemporary hand. The atlas is bound in original thick paper boards, faded, with minor but expertly administered repairs; untrimmed, very occasional light foxing, otherwise an extremely well preserved and clean copy. From the library of Arnold Thackray with his bookplate in each volume. Tucked into one of the volumes is a letter intended for a ?"Monsieur Cloez,?" written on the letterhead of the École Imperiale Polytechnique and dated 1859. The recipient was probably the French chemist François Stanislas Cloez (1817-1883), founder of the Chemical Society of France and an important player in the development of analytical chemistry in the nineteenth century. The inclusion of this letter may indicate the set?'s provenance, though there are no other markings to substantiate it. First edition of the author?'s first major work, ?"the author?'s most important work, containing his discovery of the geometrical law of crystallisation, known by his name, and of piezo-electriciy?" (Zeitlinger). The first volume of text presents Haüy?'s crystal theory, followed by its application on mineral classification in the ensuing three volumes. ?"The basic idea of his theory is that the primitive form of crystals of a certain species results as a nucleus from the cleavage of all their secondary forms. If mechanical division proves to be impossible, there are other phenomena - particularly striation- that reveal the nucleus?" (DSB). The atlas, often lacking from the set, visually demonstrates Haüy?'s groundbreaking work on the molecular structure of crystals in an elegant arrangement of 86 plates showing hundreds of geometric figures. The painstaking work presented here prompted the Secretary of the Académie des Sciences at the time to credit him with raising mineralogy to a science as precise and methodological as astronomy (DBG). An extremely attractive and well preserved example of this important work. Haüy (1743-1822), considered the founder of crystallography, is chiefly remembered for his contributions to mineralogy. He wrote several works on physics, one of which, the Traité de physique, earned him an appointment to the Legion of Honor. During the Revolution he was thrown into prison for refusing to take the oaths required of priests, but was saved by the intercession of Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire. Under Napolean he became professor of mineralogy at the Musée d'Histoire Naturelle.

      Ohne Ort, 1801.. . Erste Ausgabe dieser zwölf fiktiven Reden oder Essays, sehr selten. Venturini (1768-1849), Historiker, Theologe, Erzähler und Dramatiker, gehörte zu dem politisch interessierten Kreis um Rebmann in Altona. Besonderes Aufsehen erregte er mit seinem, zusammen mit T. Heinrich Henke veröffentlichten scharf antiklerikalen Aufklärungsroman 'Die Peripatetiker des 18ten Jahrhunderts'. Seine 'Natürliche Geschichte des großen Propheten von Nazareth' erregte durch die Darstellung Jesu "das Aergernis weitester Kreise" (ADB). Er schrieb außerdem zahlreiche Beiträge zur Kirchengeschichte und zu Zeitschriften wie 'Braunschweigisches Journal', 'Chronik des 19. Jahrhunderts' oder für Brockhaus' Konversationslexikon. Im vorliegenden philosophisch-politisch-aufklärerischen Werk finden sich Kapitel wie: "Die Würde des Menschen als vernünftiges Wesen", "Ueber das beste Verhalten bei Einschränkung der Religionsfreiheit", "Es ist unsere Pflicht, der Wahrheit wegen, keine Aufopferung zu scheuen". Vermerk am Schluss: "Bei Schimmelpfennig in Halle gedruckt", vielleicht für Unzer in Königsberg. - Titel im Bug angefalzt, kaum fleckig. Nur in zwei deutschen Bibliotheken nachweisbar und nur dieses Exemplar im JAP seit 1950. - Hayn/G. VI 380. Nicht bei Goedeke, Kosch und Borst.

        Red-bellied Macaw (L'Ara Macavouanne)

      Paris, 1801. Colour-printed stipple engraving, finished by hand, engraved by Bouquet, printed by Langlois. This print is from an apparently unrecorded issue of Levaillant's Perroquets published on large format paper (probably 'papier vélin colombier satiné'), with a scratch proof of the title and plate number, but otherwise avant-lettre. This issue is not recorded in any of the standard bibliographies. Jacques Barraband was the finest ornithological artist of his time. The son of a weaver at the Aubusson Factory, he is first mentioned as a pupil of Joseph Malaine (1745-1809), the eminent flower painter, and is known to have worked for both the Gobelin Factory and the porcelain factory of Sèvres. His most important work was undoubtedly the 300 or so drawings that he produced for François Levaillant's three great ornithological monographs, the greatest of which was the Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets (1801-1805).

        Les Trois Ages des Colonies, ou de leur etat passe, present et a venir.

      - Paris, Giguet 1801-02. Three volumes octavo contemporary speckled calf (surface nibbling on the sides). An excellent, fresh, crisp and handsome set. First edition. This was not a period to argue against the idea of empire in France and Pradt is a notable exception to the rule of silence. Perhaps this was seen as a clever polemical spanner to be insinuated into the works of the English, Dutch, Portugese and Spanish; certainly it did Pradt no harm. He thrived under Napoleon and momentarily did even better come the restoration, until his attempts to to curry the favour of all sides backfired. He was nothing if not a sleaze; once he was sure Napoleon was truly finished he published his claim that he was 'the one man too many' that brought Napoleon down. A couple of historians have argued about his influence on Jefferson and Adams and by descent the Monroe Doctrine but he won greatest favour among the liberationists of South America, apparently Bolivar awarded him a pension paid from his own funds. This is the first and most ambitious of many works that chewed over the nature and future of colonial power over the next thirty years and while his ideal outcome changed through the years his tenet remained the same: the independence of colonies was inevitable, desirable and beneficial for Europe.

        Stonewall" Jackson approves leave for Col. Kenton Harper (the officer who allegedly prompted Bernard Bee bestow upon Jackson his famous nickname) to visit his gravely ill wife. Jackson's order was countermanded the next day, prompting Harper to resign his commission

      "Fine content War date Autograph Endorsement Signed, ""T. J. Jackson Brig Gen P.A.C.S Comg 1 Brigade,"" accomplished on the docket of Kenton Harper (1801-1867) Autograph Letter Signed. ""Kenton Harper Col 5th Inf[an]t[r]y,"" 1 page, 5"" x 8"", ""Camp Harman"" [Manassas, Virginia], August 29, 1861, to Jackson requesting leave to visit his wife who had recently taken ill. Additionally docketed in an unknown hand the following day overruling Jackson's approval. Offered together with an additional Autograph Letter Signed, ""Kenton Harper Col. 5th Va. Infy,"" 1 page, 5"" x 8"", ""Camp Harman,"" September 3, 1861, tendering his resignation; Thomas G. Rhett (1821-1878) Autograph Document Signed, ""Thos. G. Rhett A. A. General,"" 1 page, 7.75"" x 9.75"", ""Hd Qrs Army of the Potomac,"" September 5, 1861, granting Harper permission to return home; manuscript Document Signed, ""Geo: Deas AAG.,"" 1 page, 7.75"" x 6.75"", Richmond, September 5, 1861 noting that Harper's resignation had been accepted and was in force. Documents and letters bear some marginal wear and folds as expected. The Kenton Harper ALS bearing Jackson's endorsement had been damaged by fire, but the resulting hole, which affects a few letters of Harper's letter, two words in Jackson's endorsement, and a few letters in the August 30 endorsement, have been expertly conserved and in-filled with the missing text added. Overall very good to fine condition. Kenton Harper was the son of a newspaperman in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania who purchased his own newspaper in Staunton, Virginia 1823. An ambitious young man, he parlayed his success in publishing into social power, winning election to the state legislature and as mayor of Staunton, and reaping the rewards with patronage appointments from friends in the capital. He served a brief stint in the Army during the Mexican War and later served as military governor of Parras in the state of Coahuila. In 1851-1852, Harper played a brief, but fascinating part in the development of the Chickasaw Nation, accepting an appointment as agent to the tribe. At the outbreak of the Civil War, Harper became commander of the 5th Virginia Infantry. Eight days after he received his colonel's commission on April 10, 1861, he led a raid on the U.S. Army arsenal at Harper's Ferry. Although retreating Union troops set the arsenal ablaze, he managed to salvage nearly 4,000 of the 15,000 muskets stored there, as well as valuable gun milling equipment and tools. On April 28, Col. Jackson arrived and assumed command at Harper's Ferry. Harper and the 5th Virginia became part of Jackson's brigade and later fought with him at First Manassas in June 1861. According to unsubstantiated reports, it was Harper who drew General Bernard Bee's attention to the brave conduct of Jackson that day which earned him the nickname, ""Stonewall."" In August, however, Harper learned that his wife had become gravely ill, and on August 29, 1861 he formally requested a leave of absence: ""I have just received intelligence of the serious illness of my wife, of such a nature, indeed, as induces me to apprehend I shall never see her again alive. Under the circumstances I feel constrained by the highest obligations of duty to ask leave of absence for a few days."" Contrary to what some historians have asserted, Jackson almost immediately approved of the leave: ""H[ea]d Qu[arte]rs 29 Aug. 1st Brigade Respectfully approved & forwarded T J. Jackson Brig Gen P[rovisional]. A[rmy].C[onfederate].S[tates]. Com[mandin]g 1[st] Brigade"". However the next day, Jackson's commander, Gen. Joseph E. Johnston, countermanded that decision and ordered Jackson to rescind the authorization. Beside Jackson's endorsement of the 29th is another endorsement in a secretarial hand, noting that the leave was ""disapproved"" on August 30. Left with little choice, Harper resigned his commission. On September 3, 1861 he penned a touching letter to Jackson, of which he retained a copy that reads in full: ""I respectfully tender my resignation as Colonel in The Active Volunteer Forces of Virginia. I deem it an act of justice to myself to say that I do so only because of the peculiar condition of my family, which requires my immediate presence. I hope therefore I may be allowed the indulgence to visit them at once upon my unconditional resignation."" But again, Johnston stood in the way. On the verso, Harper added a note that the resignation had been ""Approved by Gen. Jackson, but refused by Gen. Johnston until action could be had upon my resignation at Richmond."" Fortunately for Harper, Richmond came through, and on September 5, 1861, Assistant Adjutant General George Deas announced the acceptance of Harper's resignation which was to take effect the same day. Writing from the headquarters of the Army of the Potomac, the Assistant Adjutant General, Thomas G. Rhett (brother of Robert Barnwell Rhett, best known as the ""Father of Secession""), authorized Harper's departure from camp the same day, giving him ""permission to return home[.]"" Following his return home, Harper again served in the Virginia legislature until 1864 before being appointed again a colonel in the Confederate Army. He led a regiment in the Valley Campaigns of 1864 seeing action at Piedmont (June 5-6) and Waynesboro, Virginia (March 2, 1865)."

        Pl. 2 L’Ara Canga male From Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets

      Paris: 1801-5 - Jacques Barraband (1767-1809) From Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets Paris: 1801-5 Hand-colored copperplate engraving in very good condition 26 1/2” x 19 1/2” framed, framed in museum quality frame with uv plexiglass /archival materials Jacques Barraband’s (1767-1809) engravings of birds are masterpieces of French ornithological illustration. These stunning portraits were done for the distinguished ornithologist Francois Levaillant, who commissioned the artist to illustrate his landmark works on African ornithology, including the lavish and striking Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets. Images of African birds were popular in early 19th-century France both for their exoticism and for the interest in Africa that Napoleon’s campaigns were generating. The collaboration of Levaillant and Barraband represented a departure from previous ornithological texts in its emphasis on beauty and luxury, with sumptuously colored and flawlessly rendered birds. The project was a massive undertaking, which required over 300 finished watercolors. Apart from their undoubted beauty, Barraband’s engravings display a scientific accuracy that few ornithological artists have matched since. The meticulous hand-colored engravings in Levaillant’s publications were unmatched for the delicate modulations of tone and color, fine lines and perfect draftsmanship, making them exceptional in their richness and tonal variation. Each feather is described by dozens of parallel lines, providing remarkable detail and naturalistically textured color. Some of the prints are embellished with touches of gold leaf on the feathers of thecheeks and shoulders of the birds, emphasizing the preciousness of the plates and reproducing the iridescence of the birds’ feathers. The present selection of images represents an opportunity to acquire spectacular engraving by a foremost 19th-century natural history artist.

He saw a long career on the seasâ€?"first in the Continental Navy during the Revolutionary War and later in the Merchant Service. In the year of his death [1834], he inscribed his framed Boston Marine Society certificate to his third son, Charles William Skinner, with whom he had taken up residence a few years prior. Charles followed his father’s footsteps by joining the US Navy where he quickly rose up the ranks. After succeeding Matthew Perry as Commodore towards the end of 1844, Commodore Charles William Skinner held command as over the U.S. naval vessels attempting to suppress the slave trade off the western African coast using the USS Jamestown as his flagship in 1845. President James K. Polk appointed Charles Skinner to head the Navy’s Bureau of Construction, Equipment, and Repair in 1847.
