        On Some Morbid Appearances of the Absorbent Glands and Spleen.

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1832. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. In: Medico-Chirurgical Transactions published by the Medical and Chirurgical Society of London, Vol. 17, pp. 68-114 [caption title]. London: Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, Green, and Longman, 1832. 8vo (209 x 132 mm). Entire volume 17, xxiv [1], 527 [1] pp., 4 (3 folding) lithographed plates bound after p.[514]. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards, rebacked preserving original gilt-lettered spine. Light foxing of plates, plate II and III split at fold (without loss), text only little age-toned and generally quite fresh and clean. Provenance: Dr. Steevens' Hospital, Dublin*, Medical and Surgical Library (a few old ink stamps in text). A fine copy. ----Garrison-Morton 3762; not in Norman, Cushing, Osler or Waller. VERY RARE FIRST PUBLICATION OF A CLASSIC IN ONCOLOGY, the full description of the simultaneous enlargement of the spleen and lymphatic glands, which Wilks in 1865 referred to as "Hodgkin's disease." Thomas Hodgkin studied under Laennec in Paris and received his doctorate in medicine from the University of Edinburgh. At the age of 27 he was appointed both a lecturer of morbid anatomy at Guy's Hospital and curator of its museum from 1825-37. Hodgkin was the first to describe tumorous enlargement of the lymph nodes, spleen, and liver as a distinct pathology and the first in England to pursue the lead of Bichat by discussing morbid anatomy from the standpoint of changes in tissue, and to give regular lecture courses in morbid anatomy. His Lectures on the Morbid Anatomy of the Serous and Mucous Membranes stimulated the study of tissue pathology in England. Hodgkin published only a few medical works during his brief medical career, which ended in 1837 after he failed to receive a promotion at Guy's Hospital; for the rest of his life he devoted himself to philanthropic pursuits. He is best known for his classic description of Hodgkin's lymphoma, contained in this copy. This is a very rare publication, only one copy sold at auction in the last 40 years: the Meyer Friedman copy (lot 86) at Sotheby's NY in November 2001 (sold for $21,450). *Dr Steevens' Hospital in Dublin was one of Ireland's most distinguished 18th-century medical establishments. It was founded under the terms of the will of Dr Richard Steevens (1653-1710), an eminent physician in Dublin, and designed by Thomas Burgh. The hospital was closed in 1987. Very Good.

        Reise in das innere Nord-Amerika Die Jahre 1832-1834 [Gebundene Ausgabe] Maximilian Prinz zu Wied (Autor), Karl Bodmer (Autor) North America Völkerkunde Reisen Reiseberichte Nord- / Mittelamerika Indi

      Ein prächtiger Bildband mit faszinierenden Bildern des Schweizer Malers Karl Bodmer und Auszügen aus den Reisetagebüchern des Prinzen zu Wied. Er sollte in keiner Bibiliothek des Geschichts- oder Kulturinteressierten fehlen. Auf ihrer "Reise in das Innere Nordamerika" (1832-1834) haben der deutsche Fürst Prinz Maximilian zu Wied und der Schweizer Maler Karl Bodmer ein Werk für die Ewigkeit geschaffen. Gleichsam die Worte aus den Reisetagebücher zu Wieds als auch die künstlerischen Fertigkeiten Bodmers, die diese fantastischen Gemälde erst möglich gemacht haben, tragen mit dazu bei, daß die Erinnerung und das Wissen von den Lebensweisen der besuchten Völker nicht ausgelöscht werden. Auch wenn einige der besuchten Stämme fast ausgestorben sind, ihre Kultur zerstört ist, so leben sie doch in den Erzählungen und Bildern weiter! Auf sehr anschauliche Art und Weise werden versunkene Indianerkulturen hier wieder lebendig. Die Aufzeichnungen des Prinzen zählen noch heute zur ersten Wahl der Völkerkundeliteratur. Auch wenn sie nicht die ersten Forscher waren, die die Stämme besucht haben (vor ihnen waren 1804 - 1806 ja schon Lewis & Clark zur Erforschung des Westens unterwegs), und auch nach ihnen noch Maler und Völkerkundler die Stämme besuchten (z.b. George Catlin), so zählen die Aquarelle Bodmers doch zu den detailgenausten und herausragendsten Arbeiten, die je ein Künstler am "Lebenden Objekt" porträtiert hat. Die Bilder Bodmers, werden in diesem aufwendig gestalteten Bildband würdig präsentiert. Einzig die Reiseerzählungen sind für meinen Geschmack zu sehr gekürzt worden (was sich aber dadurch erklärt, daß Bilder und Text in Zusammenhang gebracht werden sollten - und für viele Passagen aus den sehr umfangreichen Reisetagebüchern des Prinzen, gibt es kein entsprechendes künstlerisches Vermächtnis von Karl Bodmer. Insgesamt jedoch ein Bildband der jeden einzelnen Cent wert ist.

        The Birds of Europe.

      London Published by the Author -1837 1832 - Five volumes folio (56.4 x 39.5 cm.), 448 hand-coloured lithographed plates, the majority drawn and lithographed by Elizabeth Gould from sketches and designs by the author, the remainder drawn and lithographed by Edward Lear, list of subscribers, list of plates; occasional slight spotting or foxing, full red morocco gilt by J. Law, Liverpool, blind-stamped panels to covers, gilt peacock design to covers, spine gilt lettered direct, raised bands, top edge gilt, lightly rubbed, a fine set handsomely bound. A fine copy of Gould's first multi-volume ornithological work and the first of his works to feature plates by Edward Lear: one of the greatest ornithological artists of all time. Lear's contributions included the most eye-catching subjects in the book: eagles, owls, cranes, pelicans, geese, swans, and flamingos. Lear's plates are from bird drawings that "are certainly among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made, [for] it is evident that Lear endowed them with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, his energetic curiosity, his self-conscious clumsiness and his unselfconscious charm" (Hyman). "Lear's participation transformed the work of Mrs. Gould. . [H]e propelled her limited sense of perspective into the third dimension. He encouraged movement, vigor, and a sense of character in her birds; he instilled an idea of composition in which the subject related to its background instead of perching in midair like a cardboard cutout. He introduced a sense of subtlety and freedom into her drawings where previously she had only mimicked the technique used in etching or engraving. There is no doubt that Edward Lear was the first person to understand the art of lithography and to use it to its fullest potential. It was a legacy that made the works of Gould into a success and took them into the forefront of nineteenth-century illustration" (Tree).

        Thirty-Six New Original and Practical Designs for Chairs, adapted for the Drawing and Dining Room, Parlour and Hall by W. Toms, Junr., Carver in General.

      W. Evans, 41 Broad-Street, Bath - Lithographed throughout by Joseph Holloway, with title-page and 36 plates, each illustrating one chair. 4to. [271 x 215 x 8 mm]. Original boards with extended title printed on front and rear, cloth spine (rebacked with matching cloth). [c.1832] A fine copy of a rare book. COPAC locates copies at the British Library, Oxford and V&A, while WorldCat locates copies at Winterthur, Cleveland Public, University of California, Yale, and Virginia Historical Society. Abebooks does not even offer to print a copy on demand. Toms attempted to show his design versatility and competent cabinet maker skills by illustrating designs for chairs with richly carved or turned decorations. The first 12 chairs are in the "French modern style", followed by a number of chairs in Louis XVI style, then neo-gothic inspired hall chairs, and finally ten chairs in late English Regency design. He engaged the services of the local lithography printer Joseph Holloway and probably issued the plates privately and distributed them to potential clients. How successful this was we do not know, but the pattern book caught the eye of the enterprising Bath printer, bookseller and stationer William Evans, "who has purchashed all the remaining copies" (as stated on the boards) and was selling them for 16 shillings each. The few copies in institutional libraries are mostly the Evans issue, variously dated between c.1825 (V&A) and "183?" (Winterthur). Only the Getty, Redwood and Historic Houses Trust (Australia) seem to be the original Toms issue. A William Toms is listed as a "carver & gilder" at 41 Broad Street, Bath, in Pigot's Directory for Somerset in 1822 and 1830. This is probably William Toms senior as another William Toms, "carver & gilder" and born in Bath , is listed in the 1851 census at Market Lavington in Wiltshire, his age given as 45. This younger man is most likely our man, son of William Toms and his wife Mary Maxfield, baptised at St. Swithin, Walcot, Bath, in April 1804. Toms senior was born c1773 and is listed as "carver" in freemasonry records as a member of the Royal Sussex Lodge from 1818 until 1823. His death is recorded in Bath in 1839. A correspondent to the Bath Chronicle "Notes and Queries" column in December 1934 reported that the elder Toms first appeared in Bath directories as a carver and gilder in 1812 at Milsom Street before moving to 41 Broad Street, and that Toms junior was listed as a cabinet maker in 1837 at 5 Queen Street, Bath. The lithographer, Joseph Holloway (1797-1861), announced in the Bath Chronicle of 21st April 1831 that he had moved from 36 Westgate Street, Bath to No.10 Union Street, and this is the address given at the foot of the title-page. He was still at Union Street in 1848 but no longer listed there in 1851. William Evans, the bookseller, is listed in Pigot's Directory for 1842 at 41 Broad Street, Bath, William Toms's former address. He is still there in 1846, but by 1850 the premises were occupied by Samuel Vivian, printer, bookseller and stationer.

        Expédition scientifique de Morée. Travaux de la Section des sciences physiques sous la direction de (J. B. G. M.) Bory de Saint-Vincent.

      Paris Didot -40 1832 - First edition, 3 text volumes bound in 5 and atlas, together 6 volumes, text 4to (35 x 27.5 cm.), atlas folio (54.5 x 36 cm.), half-titles, engraved medallions on general titles, illustrations in the text, atlas with lithographed portrait of Bory de Saint-Vincent and 151 plates and maps, some double-page or folding, 67 of which coloured by hand (the atlas volume contains 6 maps on 11 sheets, (1 coloured, most double-page and folding), 31 topographical views on 35 sheets, 12 coloured geological plates, 55 (of which 49 coloured) zoological plates and 38 (of which 5 coloured) botanical plates. Contemporary half calf gilt over marbled boards, some light foxing, an excellent set of a very scarce work. Fine and complete set of this work with the text volumes and atlas. Rare: we can trace only one complete set of this work being sold at auction in the last twenty-five years (Sotheby's London, 2008). The Expédition de Morée was the name given in France to the land intervention of the French Army in the Peloponnese (at the time often still known by its medieval name, Morea) between 1828 and 1833, at the time of the Greek War of Independence. As during Napoleon's Egyptian Campaign, when a Commission of Sciences and Arts had accompanied the military campaign, a Morea scientific mission (Mission scientifique de Morée) accompanied the troops. From 1829 to 1831, under the leadership of the naturalist, physical geographer and Colonel Jean-Baptiste-Geneviève-Marcellin Bory de Saint-Vincent (177 -1846) a large collaborative body of artists, antiquarians, botanists, draftsmen, geologists, and epigraphers carried out a geographic survey of the Peloponnesus. The mission was originally divided into three sections, one dealt with the physical sciences, the second with archaeology, and the third with architecture and sculpture. While the documentation of the ancient sites and monuments fell under the direction of the architect and antiquarian Guillaume Abel Blouet (whose documentation was separately published), the geographical survey was attached to the physical sciences section under Bory de Saint-Vincent. One of the first objectives fixed by the French government had been to draw precise maps of the Peloponnese, with a scientific purpose, but also for economic and military reasons. This mapping of the Peloponnese by Puillon Boblaye was probably the greatest achievement of the Expedition. It resulted in the first large-scale mapping of the area and with the French measurement of the Peloponnesus precise co-ordinates and elevations for archaeological sites, water sources, rivers, etc. were established in relation to each other and the greater region. Furthermore, perhaps even more importantly, through the incorporation of the geodesic survey, precise co-ordinates for ancient sites, monuments and landscape features were calculated relative to the globe. In two years, a very precise map, drawn on six sheets at a 1/200,000 scale, was produced. In March 1829, a base of 3,500 meters had been traced in Argolis, from one angle at the ruins of Tiryns to an angle of a house in ruins in the village of Aria]. This was intended to serve as a point of departure in all the triangulation operations for topographic and geodesic readings in the Peloponnese proceeded to perform numerous verifications on the base and on the rulers used. The margin of error was thus reduced to 1 metre for every 15 kilometres. Zoologically, The Morea expedition confirmed that the golden jackal existed in Greece. Although earlier travel narratives had mentioned its presence, these were not considered trustworthy. Moreover, the subspecies seen and described by the French (named Canis aureus moreotica) was endemic to the region. Bory de Saint-Vincent brought back pelts and a skull.

        THE JAMAICA ALMANACK FOR THE YEAR 1832

      Kingston: Office of the Royal Gazette, 1832. [iii]-147,[1],154pp. Folding handcolored frontispiece. 12mo. Contemporary green wallet-style morocco. Some leaves loose. Very good. Issued shortly before the full emancipation of slaves, this is an important almanac from the end of the slave culture on the island. This almanac notably includes on pages 37-48 the laws relating to slaves, as amended in February 1831. In addition, the final section of the almanack (with separate pagination) lists the names of each individual "proprietor" in each county and parish, with the location of their property as well as the number of slaves and heads of livestock owned. The hand colored frontispiece depicts the signals of British ships in the West Indies. Some early Jamaica almanacs, like the present, include a page showing the Jewish calendar, which "would seem to be an indication of the importance of Jewish residents in the eyes of Christian Jamaicans" (B. W. Korn, "The Haham DeCordova of Jamaica," in AMERICAN JEWISH ARCHIVES 18:2 [Nov. 1966]). In addition on page 72 is a listing of the leaders of both the "English and German Jews' Synagogue" and the "Spanish and Portuguese Jews' Synagogue" in Kingston.

Dass diesem Werk trotz seinen hervorragenden Eigenschaften kein Erfolg beschieden war, heisst nichts. Der Prophet galt im Lande nichts. Wäre Rumohr Franzose gewesen, würde man wahrscheinlich heute nicht so viel Aufhebens von Brillat-Savarin machen." - Die 2. Auflage erschien 1832 und eine 3.

        Autograph Note Signed, Washington, D.C., April 24, 1898, to an unidentified recipient, on the Spanish American War Crisis

      octavo, 1 page, in pencil, some toning to paper, formerly folded, else in good legible condition. "Dear Sir - Loose no time in bringing influence to bear on the President to ceasehostilities until Arbitration is effected. The Spanish ministry desired to so negociate [sic] before leaving Washington and I can testify that this is a fact, and that the offer was so made.Yours in hasteMary E. Walker M.D." Mary Walker was born November 26, 1832, in Oswego, New York. Her early education took place at the Falley Seminary in Fulton, New York. She graduated from Syracuse Medical College graduating with a Doctor of Medicine degree in 1855. Thereafter she moved to Columbus, Ohio, where she started a private practice. Returning to her home state not long after, Walker married fellow physician Albert Miller, and the couple moved to Rome, New York. Soon after the Civil War began in 1861, Walker began volunteering as a nurse working early on at the Patent Office Hospital in Washington, D.C. She took a break from volunteering her services in 1862 to earn a degree from the New York Hygeio-Therapeutic College in New York City, but soon returned to the war effort. This time, she worked on the battlefield, in tent hospitals in Warrenton and Fredericksburg, Virginia. In the autumn of 1863, Walker traveled to Tennessee, where she was appointed assistant surgeon in the Army of the Cumberland by General George H. Thomas, one of the principal commanders in the Civil War's Western Theater. In April 1864, Walker was captured and imprisoned by the Confederate Army. She was released that August, after being held in Richmond, Virginia, for several months. Following her release, Walker briefly returned to Washington, D.C. In the autumn of 1864, she received a contract as an "acting assistant surgeon" with the 52nd Ohio Infantry, and soon began supervising a hospital for women prisoners and then an orphanage. Walker retired from government service in June 1865. Later that year, in recognition of her courageous war efforts, she was awarded the Medal of Honor for Meritorious Service - becoming the first woman to receive the honor. Over a century later, Mary Walker remains the only female Medal of Honor recipient. After the Civil War, Walker lectured on such issues as dress reform and women's suffrage, but did not support a proposed suffrage amendment, contending that the right to vote was already contained in the Constitution. In an unfortunate turn of events, in 1917, the U.S. government changed the criteria for the Medal of Honor and withdrew Walker's medal, though she continued to wear it thereafter. She died two years later, on February 21, 1919, in Oswego, New York. Nearly 60 years after her death, in 1977, Mary Walker's Medal of Honor was posthumously restored by President Jimmy Carter. Walker's letters, as well as her autograph, are relatively scarce. Notable American Women, volume 3, pp., 532-533

        On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures.

      Philadelphia: Carey and Lee, 1832. First American edition of Babbage's early influential work on operations research. Small octavo, original cloth. In very good condition with some light wear to the extremities and spine label, name to the title page. Scarce in the original cloth. Babbage's On the Economy of Machinery and Manufacturers was the first book on operations research, discussing topics like the regulation of power, control of raw materials, division of labor, times studies, the advantage of size in manufacturing, inventory control, and duration and replacement of machinery. On pages 166 and 167 Babbage analyzed the production of his book as an example of the cost of each step in a particular production process. The work was Babbage's most complete and professional piece of writing, and the only one of his books that went through four editions in his lifetime" (OOC).

        Lettre autographe signée adressée à François-Amable de Brian

      1832 - - 7 août 1832, 12,5x19,4cm, 3 pages 1/2 sur 2 feuillets. - Lettre autographe signée de François-René de Chateaubriand adressée au comte François-Amable de Brian, directeur du journal royaliste La Quotidienne. Ecrite à l'encre noire d'une écriture ample. Quelques mots soulignés. Petite déchirure angulaire sans manque de texte au coin inférieur gauche du second feuillet. Publiée dans le tome IX des correspondances complètes chez Gallimard. Témoignage poignant d'une époque troublée de l'Histoire de France et de la vie personnelle de l'auteur, cette lettre nous plonge dans les premières années de la Monarchie de Juillet et la vive résistance que lui opposent les légitimistes, avec Chateaubriand comme chef de file. A l'aube du départ de l'écrivain pour la Suisse, les divisions du parti légitimiste le retiennent encore. « Je voulais, Monsieur, aller vous dire adieu avant de partir, le temps m'a manqué et de nombreux embarras m'ont retenu » Chateaubriand écrit cette lettre un mois après son emprisonnement au sein de la préfecture de police de Paris, suite à l'insurrection royaliste manquée de la duchesse de Berry. Proche de la duchesse et défenseur des Bourbons déchus, il est arrêté et accusé de « conspiration contre la sûreté de l'État » ; il sort quinze jours plus tard et fait figure de martyr. Ténor du parti légitimiste, on le charge de plaider la cause de Pierre-Antoine Berryer, célèbre avocat et parlementaire resté en prison à Nantes et victime de la répression qui a suivi le soulèvement royaliste. Ne parvenant pas à obtenir une réponse du ministre de l'Intérieur concernant la libération de Berryer (« celui-ci ne m'a pas même envoyé un simple accusé de réception ») Chateaubriand conte ses déboires à de Brian dans cette lettre. La missive s'achève sur l'annonce de son départ imminent pour la Suisse, où il s'exile fréquemment depuis 1830. Après l'insurrection de la duchesse de Berry, qui a sans succès tenté de renverser la monarchie de Juillet, le parti se déchire. Des vagues d'arrestations frappent les légitimistes, et la duchesse est en cavale à travers la France. Le comte de Brian accuse même Chateaubriand de trahison, s'appuyant sur un article du Times du 4 août 1832, qui lui impute la tenue de conversations secrètes avec le ministre de l'Intérieur, Camille de Montalivet. Bien loin de trahir le parti cependant, Chateaubriand se démène auprès du ministre pour libérer Berryer, grande figure royaliste, qui plaida quelques années plus tôt pour La Quotidienne dirigé par de Brian lui-même. D'un ton amer, Chateaubriand se défend dans la lettre : « Vous savez que je n'ai eu d'autre rapport avec M. de Montalivet que l'envoi de la lettre à moi adressée par M. Berryer lors de son arrestation à Angoulême ». Attaqué même dans son propre camp, il tente à grand peine de rassembler des troupes royalistes désunies et méfiantes. Chateaubriand se retrouve porte-parole d'un parti légitimiste en pleine débâcle et incite de Brian à ne rien publier qui pourrait « augmenter les divisions des royalistes » et lui adresse de sages recommandations (« Le silence me paraît préférable à tout »). Mais l'écrivain ne suit pas ses propres conseils, et publie la même année une série de brochures contre la monarchie de Juillet qui le placent au cœur du scandale, ainsi qu'un Mémoire sur la captivité de la duchesse de Berry l'année suivante pour lequel il sera poursuivi. « Je pars cette nuit. Je reviendrai, si ma présence est nécessaire ; sinon je dis adieu à la France, je ne la reverrai plus. » L'auteur termine sur une note dramatique, fatigué des tumultes politiques qui accablent le pays et du combat sans fin qui l'oppose à la monarchie de Louis-Philippe. Son âme polémique ne cessera pourtant pas de vibrer pour la cause royaliste, malgré son désir de s'éloigner de la France pour se consacrer à ses titanesques Mémoires. Importante lettre écrite entre deux étapes de la vie de l'auteur, qui dresse un aperçu du chaos politique qui accompagne l'avènement de la monarch [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        "On some morbid appearances of the absorbent glands and spleen".; In: Medico-Chirurgical Transactions, Published by the Medical and Chirurgical Society

      London: Longman, Rees, Orme, et al, 1832. 8vo. Hodgkin's paper is on pp. 68-114. Entire volume: xxiii, 523 pp. Original embossed cloth, gilt-lettered on spine, gilt crest on front cover. Hodgkin's historic paper was read before the society on 10 and 24 January 1832. With characteristic modesty, Hodgkin outlined his findings, showing his careful scholarly correlation of clinical medicine and mobid anatomy in the delineation of the disease. "The morbid alterations of structure which I am about to describe are probably familiar to many practical morbid anatomists, since they can scarcely have failed to have fallen under their observation in the course of cadaveric inspection. They have not, as far as I am aware, been made the subject of special attention, on which account I am induced to bring forward a few cases in which they have occurred to myself, trusting that I shall at least escape severe or general censure, even though a sentence or two should be produced from some existing work, couched in such concise but expressive language, as to render needless the longer details with which I shall trespass on the time of my hearers." He was most likely correct that others had observed the same condition. David Craigie, for example, discusses the pathology of the lymphatic glands in his 'Elements of General and Pathological Anatomy' (1828), citing repeated attacks of inflammation alternating with resolution. But it seems unlikely that Craigie recognized the distinctive nature of the disease process. Hodgkin, however, was convinced that he was dealing with a primary disease of the absorbent (lymphatic) glands and not a banal secondary response to an obscure inflammatory condition. He briefly describes six cases, and references a seventh seen by Carswell, and his conclusions correctly identified the disease that now bears his name. See Henry S. Kaplan, 'Hodgkin's Disease,' 2nd ed., Cambridge, 1980, p. 1ff. Garrison-Morton-Norman 3762.
