        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.

        The Masque of Anarchy. A Poem. Now first published, with a preface by Leigh Hunt.

      London: Edward Moxon, 1832 - Small octavo. Original boards, spine label largely intact. Housed in brown morocco pull-off case. Spine discreetly restored but both spine and title label largely preserved and intact, boards a little dust-soiled and marked with light rubbing to extremities, faint spotting to endpapers, ownership inscription torn from top fore-corner of front free endpaper, hinges completely sound and on the whole internally clean. An excellent copy. First edition, in exceptional condition in the original boards, with the spine and title label largely preserved. The passing of the 1832 Reform Act emboldened Leigh Hunt to allow at last the publication of Shelley's incendiary poetic reaction to the Peterloo Massacre of 1819: "Rise like lions after slumber / In unvanquishable number! / Shake your chains to earth, like dew / Which in sleep had fall'n on you: / Ye are many – they are few". The publisher Moxon, Charles Lamb's son-in-law, would later stand trial for blasphemous libel for publishing a relatively unexpurgated edition of Queen Mab. Granniss, 80; Wise, p. 71.

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.

        [Ornithology] A history of British birds by Thomas Bewick

      Newcastle: printed by Charles Henry Cook, for R. E. Bewick: sold by him, Longman and Co., London; and all booksellers, 1832. Full Calf. Fine. 8vo: xl,386; xviii,424pp. Collated and complete in two volumes: I. containing the history and description of land birds; II. containing the history and description of water birds. Illustrated throughout with engravings on wood by Thomas Bewick. Uniformly bound in contemporary full polished calf, covers framed in double gilt fillets and leaf roll in blind, spines in five compartments with two black morocco lettering pieces gilt; end papers and edges marbled. Provenance: old book plates on front paste down and front fly leaf of both volumes. A superb set, bindings tight and secure, contents very fresh and bright without a trace of foxing or browning, rich impressions of the numerous woodcuts. Not in Roscoe. OCLC Number: 12197896. According to ODNB, more than 600 distinct woodblocks were engraved for this two-volume work by the time the last of eight editions was published during Bewick's lifetime. "Apart from the excellence of the principal figures, the numerous tailpiece vignettes that enlivened every spare space in the book came in for special notice. . . . [Their] narrative content . . . is often ironic and displays a mordant view of the world and human folly . . . The gritty reality of the lives of the crippled old soldiers, road menders, blind beggars, and rain-soaked packmen who inhabit Bewick's landscapes is at odds with the sentimental view of those who now reproduce his work on pots and tea towels. . . Any comparison of Bewick's work with that of his predecessors makes clear how original it appeared at the time. Not only was there truth in outline and animated posture, but the habitat was beautifully realized."

        Emigration or a flight of fair game...

      London: A. Ducote's Lithog.y 70 St. Martins Lane Published by Thos. McLean, 26 Haymarket, June 17th, 1832. Hand-coloured lithograph 23.6 cm x 38.2 cm (image). A very rare and desirable caricature. Since the First Fleet, the paucity of males to females meant that if the Colony was to become more than a penal settlement, incentives had to be set in place to attract the migration of women. This striking and beautiful caricature is printed hot on the heels of the British Government subsidising the migration of free settlers (using the revenue it had raised from the sale of land in Australia): biased heavily in favour of single women. Despite the lure of free passage, the recruitment of female emigrants proved difficult--not least because single women suffered the stereotype of being prostitutes. This strikingly attractive print shows the men of Van Diemen's Land eagerly awaiting the arrival of the young women ("I sees a prime 'un" gallantly opines one man), while the women left behind outside the Workhouses (and penitentiaries) of England are wishing that they too were eligible: "Varmint" jealously cries one female to the butterfly retinue.Alfred Ducote worked as a lithographer in London between 1834 and 1841. His lithograph is based on an original work by John Doyle (1797-1868). This wonderful image addresses itself both to English and Australian audiences and appeared towards the end of a vibrant tradition of printed social and political satire.Hordern House has never handled another copy of this work and this example is differentiated from the four other known examples (at the NLA, National Gallery of Australia, the Allport Library and SLNSW) "Emigration" lacks the hyphen.

Tattersfield 2.543B. Menzies 1704. Lowndes 2098. Not in Roscoe. Originally published by Ritson,"who continued from time to time to make additions to his own copy, from which the present edition has been carefully printed. The original engravings, by the celebrated Bewick, have again been used; and from the improved art of wood-cut-printing, will be found superior in clearness and beauty to the first impression." (from the Advertisement). The editor of this edition, according to Lowndes, was Ritson's nephew, who added in the appendix the Tale of Robin Hood and the Monk, of which Ritson was unaware. Lowndes also concurs that the "woodcuts are better struck off and clearer." Joseph Ritson was an English antiquarian notorious for vicious and blistering criticisms of his literary contemporaries, including Thomas Warton (History of English Poetry) and, most famously, Samuel Johnson (the edition of Shakespeare produced with George Steevens in 1783 particularly irked Ritson). But the work upon which Ritson's fame rests—"his single greatest achievement"— is this exhaustive Robin Hood. "For many years he had attempted to collect all the ‘historical or poetical remains’ concerning Robin Hood, and his research was so thorough that only a handful of ‘remains’ of any significance have subsequently been discovered."

        American Cuckoo - Coccyzus americanus

      London 1832 - This splendid hand-colored, folio size lithograph from John Gould's (1804-1881) monumental work "Birds of Europe" is in excellent condition, measures 14 ½” x 21 ½” and magnificently displays the author's scientific skill and attention to detail. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalog exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Rich, vibrant color is an important attribute of the best 19th Century prints. Many prints by John Gould found on the market today have modern color that affects both the appearance and the value of these great works. John Gould died in 1881 still actively illustrating and producing fine bird books. His stock of unsold copies, unbound text and plates in various states, lithographic stones, drawings and paintings, amounted to nearly three tons. Many of the uncolored pulls from his monumental "Birds of Europe" have been recolored in the last thirty years, and these are often found on the market. Fortunately, the difference between original and modern color can be discerned by looking carefully at the print. When modern color is applied to 180 year old paper, the application is inconsistent; the cellulose of the aged paper has begun to breakdown and can no longer evenly absorb the watercolors, resulting in a splotchy uneven appearance All of the Gould bird prints in Arader Galleries' inventory have exquisite original color. The vastly superior quality of original color can be clearly differentiated from new color by its smooth and even appearance. The inks have noticeably deeper, richer tones. The difference can also be seen in the lovely surface "sheen" that results from the application of gum arabic when the lithograph was first pulled. The hand coloring of engravings and lithographs reached its zenith in the 19th Century. Works that still display their original color are more rewarding to view, and will better hold their value in the years to come.
