        Autograph manuscript signed. 10pp., with Recamier Autograph letter signed.

      Paris 1822 - Chaussier, François (1746-1828). Autograph manuscript draft. 10pp. on 10 numbered leaves. [Paris:] 3 February 1822. Written on the backs of several printed and manuscript documents, including the following: Recamier, Joseph (1774-1852). Autograph letter signed to Chaussier. 1 page plus integral address leaf. [Paris:] 17 January 1822. Together two items. 254 x 201 mm. A few lacunae where seals were broken, a few pin-holes, minor marginal fraying, but very good. Chaussier, a pioneer in forensic medicine, introduced the teaching of legal medicine in France in 1790. He began his medical career in Dijon, where he taught anatomy, chemistry and material medica at the Dijon Academy. In 1794, at the request of the French government, Chaussier went to Paris to help reorganize the country's system of medical education through the creation of the Écoles de Santé. He afterwards served as professor of anatomy in the new school, taught the course of chemistry and medicine at the École Polytechnique, and worked as a physician at the Hospice de la Maternité, where he conducted research on teratology and forensic medicine. During his long and distinguished medical career Chaussier earned a reputation as an expert in legal medicine, giving consultations, writing forensic reports, and publishing several works on the subject, including Manuel médico-légal des poisons (1824), Recueil de mémoires, consultations, et rapports sur divers objets de médecine légale (1824) and Mémoire médico-légal sur la viabilité de l'enfant naissant (1826). Chaussier's manuscript draft is a review of two earlier medical reports concerning the case of a newborn infant found dead in a cesspool. Chaussier's handwriting is difficult to read, and we have not been able to decipher all of the draft; however, we have been able to determine that much of the draft is devoted to discussing the state of the dead infant's lungs, attempting to determine whether the infant had begun to breathe before its demise. Chaussier describes the appearance of the lungs of dead infants in similar cases:Un enfant naissant meurt quelques minutes après avoir respire et dans ces cas, dont nous avons souvent des exemples a l'hospice de la maternité, les poumons sont toujours développés, rosés, crépitants, leur poids [ ] et lors qu'on les met dans l'eau ils submergent complètement.[A newborn infant dies several minutes after having breathed and in these cases, of which we often have examples at the Hospice de la Maternité, the lungs are always developed, pink, crepitant, their weight [ ], and when one puts them in water they always sink completely.]And elsewhere:Mais remarquons . . . selon qu'un enfant est mort après avoir respiré, faut-il donc en conclure ainsi qu'on le fait trop souvent que cet enfant a été tué.[But note. . . if a child died after breathing, it should be concluded as one does too often that this child was killed.]He also notes that the infant's umbilical cord was not present, and mentions the possibility that gas present in the infant cadaver's lungs might be the result of putrefaction, given the fact that the body had been in the cesspool eleven days before its discovery.Chaussier wrote this draft of his report on the backs of several printed or manuscript documents, including a letter sent to him a few weeks earlier by Joseph Recamier, chief physician at the Hôtel-Dieu, a pioneer in gynecological surgery (see Garrison-Morton 6033), and a cancer specialist who came up with the modern definition of metastasis. The letter reads as follows:Monsieur et très honoré collègue,On doit traiter une question de médecine légale au sujet d'un chevreuil et d'une dindonneau truffée trouvés morts chez Gri[ ] rue neuve des petits champs no. 4. La séance s'ouvrira par une discussion sur les empoisonnements par les huitres le 24 jvr. courant à 3h et . On écoutera avec soin la question des champignons malgré les favorites [ ] du docteur [ ?poulet].Voyez, si vos affaires vous permettent d'être du [ ] d [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Recueil sur la pédagogie.

      Paris, 1814-1822, - 10 pièces en un vol. in-8. demi-veau blond, dos lisse orné d'un fleuron doré, pièces de titre noires, tranches mouchetées (Boichot). Bel exemplaire. C'est une fois la paix revenue et les relations normales avec la Grande-Bretagne rétablies que s'introduisit en France la méthode d'enseignement mutuel mise au point à partir de 1795 en Angleterre par Andrew Bell et son disciple Joseph Lancaster. Elle fut à la fois adoptée par les libéraux qui souhaitaient développer un enseignement non congréganiste et aussi immédiatement l'objet d'une très vive controverse émanant des milieux cléricaux et contre-révolutionnaires, qui aboutit d'ailleurs à sa condamnation formelle par le pape Léon XII en 1824. Le problème principal était que, sous les arguments idéologiques liés à la notion d'autorité du maître, se dissimulaient des nécessités concrètes : manque criant d'enseignants du côté public, autorisation d'enseigner redonnée aux congrégations religieuses du côté clérical. I. Dissertation historique et politique, sur la néccessité de rétablir en France l'instruction publique et l'éducation de la jeunesse, et sur les moyens d'y parvenir.

        Applications de Geometrie et de Mechanique, 1822

      - SCARCE 1822 FIRST EDITION of the work in which the mathematician Charles Dupin first introduced a nonspherical surface with the property that all its lines of curvature were circular. Dupin called this surface a 'cyclide.' Recently, cyclides have been revived for use as surface patches in computer aided geometric design (CAGD), specialized military or aerospace applications, and surface modeling. According to the Dictionary of Scientific Biography, "In the Applications we find an elaboration of Monge's theory of deblais et remblais -- and, hence, of congruences of straight lines, with applications to geometrical optics. Here Dupin, improving on a theorem of Malus's (1807), stated that a normal congruence remains normal after reflection and refraction. He also gave a more complete theory of the cyclids as the envelopes of the spheres tangent to three given spheres and discussed floating bodies" (DSB, IV, 257). CONDITION & DETAILS: Paris: Bachelier Successeur Courcier. 4to. (10.25 x 8.25 inches, 256 x 206mm). [xxxv], 1, [336 pages], 17 plates. Illustration: 17 large fold-out copperplates. Exterior: Bound in half calf over scuffed and rubbed marbled paper boards. There is some chipping at the head and foot of the spine and at the edge tips, but nothing major. The binding is very tight and solid. Interior: Complete. Marbled endpapers. A very occasional and very light age spot. Very good condition throughout the interior by any measure.

        Geographical, Historical, And Statistical Map Of Arkansas Territory.

      H.C. Carey And I. Lea, Chestnut Street,, Philadelphia: 1822 - An important map of the trans-Mississippi West, this map charts the first occurrence in American cartography in which Arkansas is shown as a separate territory from Missouri and Louisiana, and charts Major Stephen Long's 1819-1820 western expedition. It shows the country between the Platte and Red Rivers with the highest degree of accuracy of the day, with the western drainage of the Mississippi River. The map also shows for the first time the area to the west of Arkansas named the 'Great Desert'. Long believed that this area was not suited to farming, and would better serve as a buffer between America and foreign territories; he notes "The Great Desert is frequented by roving bands of Indians who have no fixed places of residence but roam from place to place in quest of game". Also marked is the "Great Spanish Road", leading to Santa Fe, which would soon coincide with part of the Santa Fe Trail. The mapping of the area of the Platte River ("Route of the Exploring Expedition westward from Council Bluff") would also facilitate the huge migration of settlers, Mormons and gold seekers in the coming decades. Drawn by S.H. Long Maj. U.S. Engineers, and engraved by Young & Delleker. From the first edition of the Carey & Lea atlas, 'A Complete Historical, Chronological, and Geographical American Atlas', the first American atlas that used explanatory text in columns to the left and right of the map. This map depicts Arkansas in the period prior to becoming a state, with "Spanish Territory" immediately to the west. The explanatory text on either side of the map provides an historical sketch and information on climate and soil, animal life, Native Americans, and government. Title cartouche reads "Map Of Arkansas And Other Territories of the United States Respectfully inscribed to the Hon. J.C. Calhoun Secretary Of War By S.H. Long Major T. Engineers". Copper engraved map with period hand color, image size: 20 3/4 x 16 1/2". Paper size: 22 x 17 3/4". Wheat, C.I. (TM) 348. Overall in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A treatise on the game of chess: containing the games on odds, from the "Traite des Amateurs:" the games of the celebrated anonymous Modenese; a variety of games actually Played; and a cotalogue of writers on Chess

      ix+[blank]+xiii-xv+[blank]+Errata leaf+376 pages with frontispiece and catalog of writers on the game of chess. Octavo (9" x 5 1/2") bound in half leather with gilt lettering to spine. (Whyld and Ravillious: 1822:6). First edition.John Cochrane (1798-1878), Scottish Master, did not achieve note as player who had big practical successes. Spending most of his life in India (1824-69), his clashes against top players occurred during 1841-42, while on vacation in London. Cochrane played on equal terms against George Walker (1803-1879), William Davies Evans (1790-1872), and others. He even managed to win a match (6-4) against the Frenchman Pierre Charles Fournier de Saint- Amant (1800-1872), though in a series of games against Howard Staunton (1810-1874) he was defeated convincingly. All his preserved games show a player totally committed to tactics, a player who liked to attack and sacrifice, sometimes beyond reasonable risk. Condition:Rebound in half red leather, some pencil notations through out else a very good copy.

        [Scrapbook]: A Collection of Newspaper Clippings & Hand-Colored Wood and Steel engravings (circa 1822-1830)

      [Massachusetts]. (1822-1830). Folio scrapbook. 166pp. Contemporary dark red half morocco, marbled papercovered boards. Front board is detached, spine a little loose and a few detached leaves, else very good. A neatly assembled scrapbook collection of newspaper articles, poems, songs, and miscellaneous extracts on various topics relating to fashion, morals, and current events, spanning the years 1822-1830. All neatly tipped-in on the versos and rectos of 83 unnumbered leaves in three columns; with a variety of custom cut and painted divisional borders, and numerous hand-colored wood and steel engraved vignettes of various sizes tipped-in between the clippings. The album also contains embossed color and gilt vignettes, half-page and full-page portrait and landscape wood and steel engravings, and one early American satirical lithograph by W.I. Stone. Most of the clippings are from local newspapers published in Boston, New York, and Philadelphia. Two large wood-engravings (of the Berkshire Medical Institution in Pittsfield, Massachusetts on the front pastedown, and the Town of Sherburne, Nantucket on the rear pastedown) indicate the album's geographical focus in Massachusetts. Most clippings reflect the morality, humor, and wit of an educated New England lady with decidedly liberal leanings and a special interest in Lord Byron and steamboats. The tipped-in vignettes and engravings are especially fine and varied in subject manner, the cutting and hand-coloring is accomplished, and the entire album was clearly made with considerable care, thus preserving a graphically vivid picture of the period. .

        Ledger for a New York Merchant, 1819 - 1828

      Hardcover. Very good. An un-named merchant, with a full clientele of individuals, with the usual entries for purchases of sugar, tea, rum, shrub, tobacco, bitters, flour, and nautical supplies for boats including sails and tack. Most interesting are the multiple entries for Daggett & Kensett. Our merchant appears to act as a bank & supplier for them, and supply ships in the US Navy. Payment of cash & occasionally supplies appear on the left side of the ledger, with long lists of US Navy ships & Captains on the right side of the ledger, with payments. Amongst the provisions supplied to Daggett & Kensett are Cash for Tin $53.63 1822, and 1823 Sept. 13, 12 barrels vinegar. They had developed a process for canning seafood (salmon, oysters and lobsters), in 1819, and in 1825, Ezra Daggett and Thomas Kensett of New York City were granted the first U.S. patent for food storage in cans. An April 3rd 1823 entry reads "Apl 3rd 1823 to Nov. 30th 1824 provisions sold US Navy received by US Navy received by Dept .... $4350.30." The merchant had a good business, with deposits at the Franklin Bank, Bank of America & Bank of the United States, at times over $12,000. Other clients included the Brig Comet, Alfred Churchill, Sloop Eagle, Alexander M. Hamilton, Capt. Wm. Bunnell, Asaph Hall, Chatham 1823, possibly the father of Asaph Hall (October 15, 1829 - November 22, 1907) the American astronomer who discovered the moons of Mars in 1877.

FOUND AUTHOR: Gardiner, Marguerite, Countess of Blessington Gardiner, Marguerite, Countess of Blessington (1789-1849) Novelist, Poet, Story Writer, Biographer, Editor, Travel Writer, Letter Writer, Essayist. Active 1822-1849 in England, Britain, Ireland, Europe; Italy, France, Continental Europe Marguerite Gardiner, Countess of Blessington, famous for her beauty, notorious for her supposedly scandalous life, was at the centre of London literary life for more than thirty years. The friend of Byron, Dickens, Bulwer-Lytton, Thackeray and Disraeli among others, she presided over a series of glittering salons and corresponded indefatigably with many of the best-known writers of the day. She was also a writer of novels, poems, short stories and travel books, and edited several successful annuals and gift-books. Born - as Margaret Power - in the small village of Knockbrit in County Tipperary, Ireland, she was the eldest daughter of an impoverished Irish squire and his well-born wife. A shy, and not overly attractive child, she was educated by a lady well-wisher and by a course of self-imposed reading. By her early teens she had become a beauty, and when she was fourteen her father forced her into an arranged marriage to Captain Maurice St Leger Farmer. Her husband proved to be an abusive alcoholic and she returned home after only a few months. Her next few years are not well documented, but from about 1806 she lived in Hampshire as the kept mistress of a landed Englishman, Captain Thomas Jenkins. In 1815 she met the wealthy earl of Blessington, who reputedly paid £10,000 to Jenkins for the transfer of her favours to himself. Blessington set about trying to obtain a divorce for her, but this proved to be unnecessary, as in 1817 her husband died after falling from a window, and the couple were able to marry. They spent the next few years living in the greatest of luxury in London: politicians, peers, writers and painters flocked to their house in St James's Square. Her reputation had preceded her, however, and respectable ladies neither called on her nor invited her to their homes. In 1822 she published two slim volumes of essays of mild satire and social comment, The Magic Lantern and Sketches and Fragments, and a travel book, Journal of a Tour through the Netherlands to Paris. In 1823 the Blessingtons set out for a protracted tour of the continent, on which they were joined by Alfred, Count d'Orsay. At just twenty-one, he was twelve years younger than the countess, whose lover he was generally believed to be. Arriving in Genoa, in Italy, they called on Byron and spent six weeks riding, dining and conversing with the poet. They spent five years in Italy, during which time d'Orsay contracted a marriage with the Earl's sixteen-year-old daughter, Lady Harriet Gardiner. They sett.

        Cary's New Map of England and Wales, with Part of Scotland.

      [London]: G. & J. Cary, 1822. - 4to., (12 1/8 x 10 1/8 inches). 2-page publisher's Advertisement, engraved title page, Dedication page, and "Explanations" page. Double-page engraved "General Map" giving Greenwich as the meridian, with original hand-color in full, 77 engraved numbered (1-81) maps with original hand-color in outline (occasional spotting). Brown cloth library binding, the smooth spine lettered in gilt (extremities bumped, one or two pale stains). Second edition, first published in 1794. The general map of England and Wales is "is the first map on the meridian of Greenwich instead of London (St. Paul's Cathedral) which had been used on English maps from its introduction by John Seller in 1676" (Wardington sale catalogue). There are in fact four meridians that pass through the Royal Observatory in Greenwich: the first was Flamsteed's, established in 1675 and named for the celebrated Astronomer Royal; the second was established by Edmund Halley in 1725; the third after James Bradley; and the fourth in 1851 by Sir George Airy. This last was designated the Prime Meridian at an international conference in Washington in 1884, even though France continued to use their own meridian in creating maps for several decades to come. "Cary's first known engraved plan is dated 1779. Henceforth, the quality of his engraving established new standards and a new style, with his effective, starkly beautiful, plain design being widely adopted. His firm's cartographic output was prolific and diverse, ranging through maps, plans, atlases, astronomical and educational works, road-books (including works based on surveys by Aaron Arrowsmith the elder, who probably trained him), guides, and globes. Particularly noteworthy are the immensely popular New and Correct English Atlas (editions from 1787), which became the standard county atlas of the period, and the Traveller's Companion (from 1790), the printing plates of both of which had to be replaced having become worn in the effort to meet the huge demand, and the particularly fine New English Atlas (from 1801) and New Universal Atlas (from 1808)" (David Smith for DNB).
