THERE IS AN ARTICLE ON: ADVENTURE OF A WHALE (20 years before Moby Dick) - North Pacific Ocean, Lat 2 50, long 94 30, April 18. To the Editor of the Weekly Messenger. Dear Sir: if my expectations, when last I wrote you from California, had been realized, I should have been before this on my homeward bound passage; but Providence has otherwise decreed. For five months we saw not the spout of a sperm whale, and it was not until within ten days past that we have heard the joyful sound from the mast-head of "There she blows!" Our boats put off, and we succeeded in making prizes of two small whales; (THIS PARAGRAPH CONTINUES, AND THERE ARE 11 OR 12 INCLUDED WITH THE ARTICLE). THERE IS AN ARCTICLE ON PAGE 3 DESCRIBING THE UPRISING OF NAT TURNER (name not mentioned specifically). The article also lists the white persons ascertained to be killed. HERE ARE SOME OF THE START OF THE ARTICLE: Respecting the late tragic occurrence in Virginia, the North Herald of Monday says: "We consider the affair at an end. The authors of the mischief are no doubt ere this either secured in prison or exterminated by their pursuers, and if any have escaped, they will be too anxious to bury themselves in the recesses of the Dismal Swamp, to give a moment's well-founded uneasiness to the inhabitants of the surrounding country. It is believed that their gang consisted principally of runaways who have been for years collecting in the Swamp, and who are supposed to have amounted to a formidable number. This, however, cannot be ascertained till an examination of the prisoners takes place, when the nature and object of their extraordinary movement will, no doubt, be fully developed...

        Plan of the City of New York

      London: Jefferys & Faden, 1831. Copper-engraved map by Thomas Kitchin after Bernard Ratzer, in very good condition, apart from some expert repairs to old folds and the lower margin. A fine copy of an apparently unrecorded second state of this important plan of New York, including the Jefferys & Faden imprint: 'Made just prior to the Revolution, the Ratzen plan was the most accurate and useful survey of New York then circulating' (Deák) 'Ratzer was an experienced surveyor and a fine draughtsman' (Cumming) whose highly accomplished plan was based on John Montresor's hurried survey of 1765. Cumming goes on to note that Ratzer's plan was 'much more carefully surveyed and drafted than Montresor's map; the wharves along the Sound are detailed, the streets given names, and new buildings and streets on either side of the Bowery entered.' It was engraved by Thomas Kitchin who mistakenly recorded the cartographer's name as 'Ratzen'. According to Deák, the plan 'details a portion of the city extending from the Battery to a point south of today's Grand Street, including the road to Greenwich (along the Hudson), Broadway, and the Bowery Lane (the high road to Boston). Across the river, a small part of Long Island is depicted, with the important Brookland Ferry clearly indicated. Thirty-one numbered references to the major landmarks are given below the dedicatory cartouche. These include Fort George, various churches, religious meetinghouses, the Exchange, and marketplaces. The nineteenth reference is to "The College" (i.e., King's College), today's Columbia University, originally located on spacious grounds overlooking the Hudson, south of Murray Street'. Curiously, the index illustrates a degree of religious tolerance that would have been found in very few cities around the world and evinces the great diversity that has characterized the city throughout its history. There is a diverse collection of Protestant sects including Calvinist, Episcopalian, Lutheran, and Huguenot churches, in addition to a synagogue. However, Roman Catholicism and non-Christian African religions were not permitted to be practiced openly. The great estates located to the north of the city proper are shown as belonging to several famous families including the Rutgers, the Bayards, and the De Lanceys. The rarity of the Plan is highlighted by the fact that it was unknown to Cumming (writing in 1979) and does not appear to have been recorded since. Cumming lists a copy of Ratzer's Map with 'Ruse & Turners' watermarks, but was uncertain if the watermark date was 1831 or 1851. The watermark date on the present example of the Plan is 'Ruse & Turners / 1831'. Since both the Cumming copy of the Map and the present Plan appear to have been printed on the same batch of paper, it is highly probable that they were printed at the same time. What is certain is that the present work is finely printed on top quality paper and that the image shows no apparent differences or wear when compared with the earlier issue. Cumming 'The Montresor-Ratzer-Sauthier Sequence of Maps of New York City, 1766-76', no.5b & cf.9b, in Imago Mundi 31 , pp.55-65; cf. Deák, American Views, 120; cf. Eno Collection , 29; cf. Manhattan in Maps, pp.73-77; cf. Stokes, Iconography of Manhattan Island 1 , p.342.

        Topographical Map of the Districts of Quebec, Three Rivers, St Francis and Gaspé, Lower Canada, exhibiting the new civil division of the districts into counties pursuant to a recent act of the Provincial Legislature

      London: James Wyld, 1831. Large engraved map (50 x 90 inches, if joined), on six sheets, hand-coloured in outline. In good condition. A spectacular large scale map of Quebec and other districts in Lower Canada by one of the most important figures in the history of Canadian cartography. This very rare and beautifully-executed map is Joseph Bouchette's cartographic masterpiece, and is here in its most desirable form. It was available on six sheets (as here), four sheets backed on to linen, or dissected into small sections backed onto cloth and folding into protective covers. It includes a smaller scale inset map of the district of Gaspé, together with 5 inset views of coastal scenery. In addition many of the new counties also include the grid divisions which were used to mark out the plots which had been surveyed and were available for settlement. Joseph Bouchette was "particularly important for the history and development of Canada. In addition to completely reorganizing surveying and cartographic services in Lower Canada. He published works that demonstrate his artistic and scientific talents" ( Dictionary of Canadian Biography ). Bouchette served as Surveyor-General of Lower Canada from 1804 to 1841 (the office was abolished at his death), he travelled extensively over a period of fifteen years, and went on to produce the most accurate and important topographical works of his time on British North America. The genesis of the present work was the need to resolve ownership disputes in the area and also to establish which areas had been surveyed. "With this in mind ... [Bouchette] asked all the seigneurs for copies of their title deeds, to enable him to direct the work of his survey parties. Furthermore, his office was swamped with requests from men who, having served in the war, had received crown land grants and wanted them surveyed. Matters were in such a state of confusion that in 1820 the governor, Lord Dalhousie, asked Bouchette to investigate the situation in the area between Lake Champlain and the American frontier and the St Lawrence River. It was necessary to identify which of the occupied lands had been surveyed and which had not ... Subsequently he directed the work on a vast number of files related to the surveying of crown lands in Lower Canada. Because there was still so much confusion regarding grants to military men, in 1824 Lord Dalhousie asked Bouchette to make a tour of the various townships in which they were located" ( op. cit. ). From 1826 to 1829 Bouchette continued to collect data, before leaving for London in September 1829 and beginning his attempt to publish the information he had gathered. Despite his official position and the help of various influential friends and potential patrons, it took him almost three years before anything was published. The present map, a very visible vindication of all Bouchette's efforts, appeared in May 1831.

        [EXTENSIVE ARCHIVE OF BURTON FAMILY CORRESPONDENCE, INCLUDING LETTERS FROM DENVER CONCERNING POSSIBLE REBEL INVASION AND POST-WAR LETTERS FROM MONTANA]

      Colorado, Montana, and other locations. Mid- 1800s to early 1900s.. Approximately 750 items, including correspondence between Chester W. Burton and family and friends throughout the country, financial documents concerning money transactions and deeds, pamphlets, account books, diaries, family photographs, and newspaper clippings. Overall good to very good condition. A massive archive of family correspondence with important western American content. Chester Warren Burton (1831- 1916) was born in Portland, New York, to War of 1812 Veteran, Hiram Burton and his wife Harriet. Burton's grandfather and uncles also fought in the War of 1812, with one uncle, Salmon Burton, losing his life as a result of wounds received at the Battle of Little York, Canada, 1813. Burton married fellow Portland resident, M. Freedom Harris (1838-1916) in 1861, and together they had three children. Freedom was heavily involved in the Universalist Social Society, which provided aid to local soldiers. Although Burton was drafted during the Civil War on Aug. 18, 1863, he provided a substitute named James Kelly who deserted after one month of service. An 1881 Portland/Chautauqua atlas includes a brief biography of Burton, identified as a "fruit grower" who also worked as a civil engineer for six years and served as an assessor. He was also described as a "Universalist and a republican." The present archive includes approximately seventy-five pre- Civil War letters, documents, land indentures, and more, which focus primarily on Burton's grandfather, Simon, and his father, Hiram, as well as Freedom's father, Joseph Elliot Harris. Some of the correspondence pertains to the family's pursuit of bounty claims owed Simon in Indiana. Hiram Burton's handwritten application for a pension in which he outlines his service as a War of 1812 Veteran, which he submitted in 1871, also accompanies the archive. Another noteworthy, pre-war item is a penciled note calling for a public demonstration against the introduction of slavery into the territories, dated March 1861. The collection contains close to 100 letters, documents, and other ephemera dating from the 1860s, including Civil War-era correspondence, such as a small batch of letters written to Burton from soldiers from Co. D of the 9th New York Cavalry, namely James Ogden who enlisted as a corporal and was promoted to bugler (which he noted in a December 1861 letter); and Charles Crosby, who enlisted as a corporal and was later promoted to sergeant. Burton also corresponded with Joe E. Cook of Western Pennsylvania, who wrote in a Jan. 20, 1861 letter: "Surely I 'Hurrah for Anderson,' and groan for our treason-fostering President. It is folly to predict on the events that are transpiring, and which are in immediate connection and dependence with so vacillating and treacherous old Benedict Batch. But, let the events take whatever turn they may, at the beginning; ever so horrid and bloody, the result will be glorious. I cannot believe but that we are about to witness the worst stage on which this nation has ever acted, and do tremble when I think of the guillotine of vengeance that the southern people are raising higher and higher above their own heads, trampling with haughty tread and iron heel over the mute-floored powdermills that for years have been accumulating with black fulminating dust of hate." Another letter written early in the war to "Friend Chet" from Cook includes strong content about joining the war effort, the Constitution, and the issue of slavery. In the Oct. 14, 1861 letter Cook states, in part: "With Gerrit Smith I abhor war, but with him I am 'sick of the shams of this war' and am quite unable to decide what will be the eventuation of the Administration in regard to Slavery. If it shall decide to emancipate unreservedly then the war will be protracted and very bloody, but if they shall continue as the watch- word, 'Vive la Constitution,' then the war will be short...." He goes on to mention John Brown Jr. taking a number of men from Erie County, where he resided, as well as Crawford County, Pennsylvania. A small group of war- date documents pertain to Burton being drafted, including a partially- printed draft notice from the provost marshal's office, with a railroad pass to the muster location in Dunkirk, New York, and two small printed notices, one a circular on types of exemptions, the other outlining the procedure for supplying a substitute or paying $300 to Internal Revenue. The circular emphasized that the drafted individual must appear in person with receipt or send substitute, or be charged with desertion. Burton's draft deferment is also included. Some of the most interesting Civil War- period letters in this archive were written from Denver, Colorado, by Burton?'s sister, Maria, and her husband, J. Billings. They concern the sizable population of southerners in the Colorado gold fields and in Denver itself, and the agitation among them to claim the territory for the Confederacy. In a letter dated Sept. 5, 1861, believed to be from Maria, panic in Denver over a possible rebel invasion/insurrection is discussed: "We are having exciting times here & have had for the last 4 weeks. There are a great many secessionist here & they talk pretty tough, but as yet have done nothing but talk. There is a regiment raising here for home protection & it does not suit the southern Chivalry here. They make all sorts threats & there are all sorts of rumors fresh ones every day. First comes about the Texas Rangers then the Indians then the secessionists from the mountains & I suppose the next thing will be something else. The first United States court met last Monday & the Grand Jury has been doing something I should think by the way the Rebels are leaving town this afternoon & I hope that it will have the effect to keep them away. One of them is our nearest neighbor & the big gun among them. I think the grand jury must have a traitor among them. I hope that he may get his just desserts....There is a great deal of anxiety to hear from the states here to know what is going on there. Times are very dull here and have been all summer. Money is out of the question...it is dicker, barter & trade. There are a great many men in the mountains that are taking out money very fast & then again there are a great many that are making nothing. I have some property here that is very valuable if there was money here to pay for it." In a follow-up letter, dated Oct. 20, 1861, Maria mentions the increased level of security in Denver: "Home Guard has 150 men stationed throughout town every night. Men serve duty every four days." Burton's brother-in-law, Billings, provides an interesting description of early Denver, and he mentions the following incident in a letter of Dec. 14, 1863, while speaking of the local sheriff: "I have not been able to see him yet as he went South about the time you left. He will be back tomorrow, then I suppose he will take Van Horn up to Central and hang him." Billings was likely referring to William S. Van Horn, who was convicted of murdering a gentleman by the name of Josiah Copeland with the help of his mistress, although she was not charged with the crime. Van Horn was taken to Denver and held in the Arapahoe County Jail in an attempt to avoid a lynching, and on Dec. 18, 1863, he was hanged in front of a crowd of thousands in Central City. This was the first legal execution carried out under territorial authority. Two letters written to Burton from an unidentified homesteader in Montana, between February and the "First day of Spring" 1867, feature rich content about the Gold Rush and surviving the winter out west. In the Feb. 27 letter, he offers a detailed description of the machine used in hard-rock gold mining to pulverize the quartz to remove the gold, which is then "amalgamated" with mercury to extract the gold. In the second letter he describes in great detail stampeding during the harsh Montana winters. He states: "You must not call the Stampeder foolish. He came here to make a big thing, has worked all summer for wages which though good will never approach riches...a stampede occurs. The weather is mild; he has enough money to buy an outfit, and with those prospects before him...home by another winter. Is he to blame for not seeing the terrors of a winter's stampede in the rocky mountains! I studied my plans carefully, and know that they will operate, among which I was to let out the stampeding, but my notion is to move and the fact that I was unable to purchase an outfit has left me still thirsting for gold...." The archive also includes hundreds of post-war documents, manuscripts and related ephemera, such as letters from children and grandchildren to Burton and his wife in Chautauqua, and while wintering in Florida; many church pamphlets; and Women's Christian Temperance Union pamphlets. A vast and research-rich archive for Civil War and Western American scholars and collectors.

Reliées en tête : 2 lettres autographes de Lamartine adressée à l'avocat et sénateur Gustave Louis Chaix d'Est-Ange (Reims 1800 - Paris 1876) - Monsieur Chaix d'Est-Ange, 23 boulevard Poissonière. (I). Mon cher collègue, C'était aujourd'hui le jour de? le plaisir de dîner avec vous. La grippe et la fièvre en décident autrement. Excusez moi et plaignez moi. Mille regrets et amitiés. Lamartine. (II). Mon cher collègue, J'ai reçu et vu avec le plus vif intérêt votre jeune protégée. Mde de Lamartine veut s'en occuper aussi et la verra Lundi. Je ne doute guère que ses idées ne soient très sincères mais je pense qu'il y a bien plus de danger d'un? pour la mémoire de sa mère et de dépenses que d'avantages à poursuivre une si impossible recherche. Je la conseillerai dans ce sens et je crois que vous devriez faire ainsi pour son bonheur et son honneur. Adieu et mille remerciements? d'autant d'amitié. Lamartine. Je pars pour Mâcon et ne vous? je vous recommande cette charmante et malheureuse (?). Gustave Chaix d'Est-Ange défendit les intérêts de Lamartine quand l'éditeur Béthune qui avait acquis les droits de l'Histoire des Girondins en 1844, se montra incapable de faire face à ses engagements et rompit le contrat l'année suivante. La cause fut tranchée en Juillet à l'avantage de l'auteur, qui en profita pour revendre immédiatement les Girondins à Furne et Coquebert. Gustave Louis Chaix d'Est-Ange était le père de Gustave Gaspard Chaix d'Est-Ange (1832-1887) qui plaida en 1857 lors du célèbre procès contre Baudelaire au sujet des Fleurs du mal.

        VIEWS IN NEW-YORK AND ITS ENVIRONS, FROM ACCURATE, CHARACTERISTIC & PICTURESQUE DRAWINGS, TAKEN ON THE SPOT

      New York, 1831. plus folding colored map of New York. In the original seven parts. Quarto. Printed paper wrappers. Laid in a clamshell case. Minor wear and chipping. Very good. An extremely rare set of the "Peabody Views" of New York, in the original parts as issued, with text by the editor, Theodore Fay, thirty-seven of thirty-eight views on fourteen of fifteen plates, and a large map of New York. The parts were issued from 1831 to 1834, published by Peabody & Co. in New York and bookseller Obadiah Rich in London. The views were engraved and the text printed entirely in New York, Rich acting as the London distributor. The Peabody views "offer fascinating glimpses of New York in the 1830's" - Deák. Together with the Bourne series, issued in 1830-31, they are the first series to show a broad spectrum of American urban life. At least seven artists contributed to the series, with the views showing a mixture of topographical scenes and elevations of important buildings. Deák notes the plates are "energetically conceived, with a thrust towards a painterly effect...a combined process of etching and engraving, requiring prolonged and meticulous craftsmanship, was used in transferring the drawings for both the Peabody and the Bourne views to the plate...the two sets of New York views represent American printmaking at a high level." A complete list of the views is given in Deák, but scenes include "Broadway from the Park," "Bowling Green," "City Hall," "Navy Yard Brooklyn," "Short Tower," "Elysian Fields Hoboken," "Merchants Room Exchange," "Hudson River from Hoboken," "Park Theatre - Park Row," "Holt's New Hotel," "Webb's Congress Hall," "Deaf and Dumb Asylum," and others, as well as the large colored map of New York. This work is bibliographically complex, and various misprints and misunderstandings, coupled with the great rarity of complete sets, has further muddied the picture; however, we think we have figured it out. The work was originally intended to be issued in ten parts, of which only eight were actually issued; however, the last "part," not present here, consisted of just two supplementary leaves of text, misnumbered [43] through 46. This has led Howes and others to state the book has only forty-six pages, when in fact it should collate: preliminary leaf,[i]-58, [43]-46. There is a folding map and should be fifteen plates. Deák mis-states this and claims there are sixteen plates, but her own listing reveals this to be incorrect, and it is evident that she misread Stokes, who describes sixteen plates including the map. Of the fifteen plates, two (those of the Episcopal Seminary) and three other scenes (including the Penitentiary and Oil Cloth Manufactory), and the plate of LaGrange Terrace, are almost always missing (they are the final two plates in the series). The Episcopal plate is in this set, but the LaGrange plate, is lacking. The original seven parts are complete except for pp. 35-36 of the text, which is lacking, as well as the final pp. 43-46. Stokes notes complete sets at The New York Public Library and the New-York Historical Society, while the NUC locates sets at the Library of Congress and Boston Public Library. This set of the Peabody views in the original parts is an exceptionally rare American view book from an early period, and a most important series of New York views.

        CORIOLIS (Gaspard-Gustave)

      1831 1191 - Académie des sciences et École polytechnique, 1831-1841, in-4, pagination multiple, 2 planches dépliantes, demi-chagrin bleu foncé, dos à faux nerfs, tête dorée, Édition originale des deux textes qui ont fondé la théorie de la force de Coriolis. 13 extraits provenant de différentes revues savantes, constituant un recueil unique d'œuvres de Gaspard-Gustave Coriolis et dont la plus grande partie est consacrée aux travaux élaborés par ce dernier pour mettre en évidence la notion de "force d’entraînement", nouvelle à cette époque, et de "forces centrifuges composées", qui prendront par la suite le nom de "force de Coriolis", par lesquelles on explique les différents phénomènes de rotation d’un repère par rapport à un autre. L'ensemble comprend les éditions originales des deux textes fondateurs et complémentaires qui ont donné naissance à ce théorème : "Sur le principe des forces vives dans les mouvements relatifs des machines" (que l'on retrouve à deux endroits différents du recueil), lu à l'Académie des sciences le 6 juin 1831 ; il est publié dans les "Mémoires présentés par divers savans à l'Académie royale des sciences de l'Institut de France" (tome III, 1932, pages 573 à 607) ; et le mémoire "Sur les équations du mouvement relatif des systèmes de corps", publié dans le Journal de l’École polytechnique en 1835 (cahier 24, tome XV, pages 93 à 184). Aucun de ces deux mémoires n'a jamais existé en édition de librairie. Le premier expose le calcul des forces de liaison dans le cas d'une roue hydraulique et comprend la notion de "forces d’entraînement". C'est dans le second qu'il évoque les "forces centrifuges composées". Physicien français de renom, Coriolis (1792-1843) étudia à l'École des Ponts et Chaussées puis à l'École Polytechnique. Il succède à Navier à la chaire de mécaniques appliquées des Ponts et Chaussées en 1832. Bibliotheca mechanica pp. 78-79. DSB III, pp. 416-419. Alexandre Moatti, "Coriolis, naissance d’une force". Étiquette ex-libris de Henri Viellard. Étiquette de bibliothèque en pied du dos. Une lacune angulaire au dernier feuillet, sans perte de texte. L'ouvrage comprend : des MÉMOIRES ET NOTES DE CORIOLIS : - "Mémoire sur le principe des forces vives dans les mouvements relatifs des machines. Lu à l'Académie des sciences, le 6 juin 1831". Pages 573 à 607 extraites des Mémoires présentés par divers savans à l'Académie royale des sciences de l'Institut de France, tome III, 1932. - "Mémoire sur les équations du mouvement relatif des systèmes de corps".

        Account of the Steps taken, in England, with a view to the establishment of an Academical Institution, or College, in New South Wales; and to demonstrating the practicability of effecting an extensive emigration of the industrious classes from the mother country to that colony

      Sydney: Stephens and Stokes, 1831. Light foxing.. Octavo, 27 pages, old marbled wrappers. A rare and early pamphlet by the prolific Lang, on the foundation of the Australian College, printed in Sydney by Stephens & Stokes the same year that they began publishing the Herald.In his preface, Lang discusses how the establishment of 'an Academical Institution, for the education of Youth... on the liberal and economical principles of the Schools and Colleges in Scotland' had been a dream of his since he arrived in the colony in 1822. Lang returned to England in 1830, where he argued for the adoption of the scheme, and was pleased with the positive response. As a result of his efforts, the Australian College was opened in 1831, surviving until 1854: 'at its best in the late 1830s it appears to have been run very efficiently' (ADB).One of the most attractive aspects of this pamphlet is the inclusion of a catalogue of "Donations for the Institution", which gives a glimpse of the resources available: these include, the works of Jeremy Bentham in thirty volumes octavo, donated by Bentham himself; scientific apparatus from Dr. Ure, late Professor of Natural Philosophy and Chemistry in Glasgow; and Boswell's Life of Johnson, "from a Young Gentleman in London".The work also contains much of interest regarding Lang's long-cherished plan of arranging for emigration to Australia, in particular the details of his involvement in chartering the famous Stirling Castle voyage.

Quelques minimes frottis, restauration à l'extrémité d'un mors du tome IV, mais un bel exemplaire, bien complet des spectaculaires planches en excellent état de fraîcheur. Bel exemplaire de la première édition de cet ouvrage monumental, magnifiquement illustré par la chromolithographie, chef d'oeuvre de l'anatomiste Jean-Baptiste Bourgery (1797-1849) et de Nicolas Henri Jacob (1781-1871), qui fut élève de David et professeur à l'Ecole vétérinaire de Maisons Alfort. Il est divisé en quatre parties: anatomie descriptive, anatomie chirurgicale, anatomie générale et anatomie philosophique, et constitue l'un des ouvrages les plus remarquables de toute l'histoire de l'anatomie. Les impressionnantes gravures - en particulier pour la médecine opératoire, natures sensibles s'abstenir - sont remarquables aussi bien par la perfection de leur détail que par leur qualité artistique.

Febr: 81.', Papier & Darstellung: 22,7 cm x 14,5 cm. . Dieses Aquarell der Ehefrau des Politikers und Mitbegründers der Zentrumspartei Carl Friedich von Savigny (1814 Berlin - Frankfurt a.M. 1875) Marie von Savigny (1831-1905), geb. Arnim-Boitzenburg, lädt auf den ersten Blick ein in eine mediterrane Palmenidylle, unberührt von Zivilisation. Doch auf dem unteren Drittel des Bildes wird durch eine gestutzte Hecke und einem Treppenaufgang im Hintergrund bewusst verdeutlicht, dass die Palmen sich doch in einer Art Garten zu sein scheinen. Die Illusion der unberührten Exotik wird endgültig durch die Frauengestalt in der mittleren Ebene des Bildes mit Hose, Mantel und Regenschirm gebrochen. Es handelt sich um einen vom Menschen gerahmten Naturraum, der dennoch durch die schiere Größe der gen Himmel emporragenden Palmen in Staunen versetzt wird. Hyeres ist eine französische Hafenstadt an der Mittelmeerküste. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        JOURNAL

      [At sea from Hawaii to Boston], 1831. Folio. Original pink patterned wrappers. Top half of front cover torn along hinge; remainder of spine chipped. Front cover lightly dampstained. Bright and clean internally. Near fine. Manuscript journal of James Hunnewell (1794-1869) during his return trip from Hawaii to Boston in 1830-31 aboard the ship Owhyhee. The journal mostly gives an account of the weather and conditions at sea, as well as the latitude and longitude positions of the ship. A roster of the crew and passengers is written on the last page. A later manuscript sheet is laid into the front of the journal, containing a listing of Hunnewell's voyages beginning in 1818 up through the trip aboard the Owhyhee, presumably written by his son, James F. Hunnewell. Hunnewell became familiar with the islands when the ship he was on was sold to Hawaiian chiefs. The senior Hunnewell was responsible for collecting the payment in sandalwood and then selling it in China. As a result, he spent several months in the islands and became friendly with the local populace. In 1820 he arrived in Honolulu as second mate on the brig Thaddeus, the ship bearing the first American missionaries as well as the first printing press there. He later developed a significant business in Hawaii which grew into the commercial house later known as C. Brewer & Company. Though he returned to Charlestown, Massachusetts, he spent the rest of his life actively engaged in exporting goods to Hawaii and California. Part of his considerable fortune was given to found Oahu College.

        O. v. ALVENSLEBEN (1831 Benkendorf-Dresden 1903) Ulme Göllheim, Adolf von Nassau

      - O. v. ALVENSLEBEN (1831 Benkendorf-Dresden 1903) Die alte Ulme zu Göllheim am Denkmal für Adolf von Nassau, 1875 -- Technik: -- Aquarell über Bleistift auf Papier, unten bezeichnet und datiert: "Alte Ulme zu Göllheim am Denkmal Ad. von Nassau's. 28. 7. 75. eine kl. engl. Anlage umgiebt das Denkmal in O. ", rückseitig bezeichnet: "Oskar von Alvensleben". -- Maße: -- 28,2 x 22,5 cm -- Zustand: -- Papier leicht stockfeckig. Sonst sehr gut. -- Beschreibung: -- Am 2. Juli 1298 fand bei Göllheim eine Schlacht zwischen den Truppen des habsburgischen Herzogs Albrecht vonÖsterreich und des römisch-deutschen Königs Adolf von Nassau statt, bei der letzterer gefallen ist. Seine Witwe ließspäter an dieser Stelle ein steinernes Kreuz errichten, um das in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts eine neugotischeKapelle erbaut wurde. Hinter dem mächtigen Stamm einer Ulme ist auf der linken Seite der Komposition unseres Aquarells ein Teil derKapelle zu sehen. Ansonsten schenkt der Künstler seine volle Aufmerksamkeit dem imposanten Baum, der vielleichtnoch älter ist, als das Kreuz selbst: "Der Baum scheint mit dem Monumente gleichzeitig gesetzt zu sein, und eineunverbürgte Sage will ihm noch höheres Alter zusagen. " (Johann Geissel, Die Schlacht am Hasenbühl und das Königskreuz zu Göllheim. Eine historische Monographie, Speyer 1835, S. 113. )Der mächtige Stamm füllt den Bildraum beinahe vollständig. Er ist umgeben von einer niedrigen Brüstung, die ihn voraufdringlichen Besuchern schützen soll. Die offen konzipierte Komposition lässt die Krone über den Bildrand hinausaus der Sicht des Betrachters geraten. Links wurde eine Männerfigur an einem Tisch dargestellt, bei der es sich um einSelbstporträt des Künstlers bei der Fertigung der Skizze handeln könnte. Wahrscheinlicher ist aber, dass das Einsetzeneiner menschlichen Gestalt in der Nähe des Baumes der Verdeutlichung seiner gewaltigen Dimension dienen sollte. Alvenslebens Aquarell entstand vermutlich zur Vorbereitung eines Gemäldes. Dafür sprechen die auf dem Blattnotierten Bemerkungen Lebensbaumhecke und durchsichtig belaubt. Im Übrigen gewähren sie eine interessante Einsicht inden künstlerischen Entstehungsprozess. Ob das Gemälde jemals fertig gestellt wurde, ist nicht bekannt. So gewinnt dieZeichnung an Bedeutung als Überlieferung eines historischen Ortes " die Ulme von Göllheim existiert heute nichtmehr. --

Seltene letzte Ausgabe! - Neben Heister gehörte August Gottlieb Richter (1742-1812) zu den Begründern der wissenschaftlichen Chirurgie in Deutschland. Als medizin. Schriftsteller war er unerreicht. Richter vermittelt seinen zum Teil noch im Feldscherergeist befangenen Kollegen die großen ausländischen Fortschritte der Chirurgie. Er schrieb ein reines Deutsch, ohne allen gelehrten Putz. Noch ein Menschenalter später schrieb Dieffenbach in seinem Vorwort zur Operativen Chirurgie: "So ein Buch möchte ich, das auch das Meinige wäre." Richters Wundarzneykunst ist ein Markstein deutscher Chirurgie. - Besonders die grundlegende neue Hernienlehre (5.Bd.), die erste umfassende Darstellung der Neurochirurgie im deutschen Sprachraum, sowie die wichtigen Beiträge zur Augenheilkunde und Urologie sind besonders erwähnenswert. (siehe G. Fischer: Chirurgie vor hundert Jahren, pp.171-209). - - August Gottlieb Richter is considered the father of scientific surgery in Germany. He travelled wiedly and was well acquainted with the best French and English surgery of the day. His writing have the mark of perfection. The present seven volumes comprise a scholary history of surgery. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
