        Pah-She-Pah-How

      Philadelphia: E. C. Biddle, 1835. Hand-coloured lithograph by Lehman & Duval after C. B. King. In excellent condition. A fine image from McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America': `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians' (Field),` a landmark in American culture' (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. Pashepahaw was a Sauk chieftain, known as the Stabber. He was a colleague and ally of Keokuk, and, therefore opposed to Black Hawk. When Pashepahaw visited Washington in 1824, McKenney asked about him and learned that he had been insulted by an Indian agent (one of McKenney's men) and had promised to kill the man. A medicine man named Taimah learned of this and, though quite ill, traveled a considerable distance to warn the agent, who was ready when Pashepahaw arrived, and thus a frontier war was prevented. Pashepahaw was forced to back down, but kept his hair long thereafter. He lived long enough to be painted as an old man by George Catlin, who called him "a very venerable old man." McKenney and Hall's 'Indian Tribes of North America' has long been renowned for its faithful portraits of Native Americans. The portraits are largely based on paintings by the artist Charles Bird King, who was employed by the War Department to paint the Indian delegates visiting Washington D.C., forming the basis of the War Department's Indian Gallery. Most of King's original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall's magnificent work is thus our only record of the likenesses of many of the most prominent Indian leaders of the nineteenth century. Numbered among King's sitters were Sequoyah, Red Jacket, Major Ridge, Keokuk and Wapello. After six years as Superintendent of Indian Trade, Thomas McKenney had become concerned for the survival of the Western tribes. He had observed unscrupulous individuals taking advantage of the Native Americans for profit, and his vocal warnings about their future prompted his appointment by President Monroe to the Office of Indian Affairs. As first director, McKenney was to improve the administration of Indian programs in various government offices. His first trip was during the summer of 1826 to the Lake Superior area for a treaty with the Chippewa, opening mineral rights on their land. In 1827, he journeyed west again for a treaty with the Chippewa, Menominee , and Winebago in the present state of Michigan. His journeys provided an unparalleled opportunity to become acquainted with Native American tribes. When President Jackson dismissed him from his government post in 1830, McKenney was able to turn more of his attention to his publishing project. Within a few years, he was joined by James Hall, a lawyer who had written extensively about the west. McKenney and Hall saw their work as a way of preserving an accurate visual record of a rapidly disappearing culture. (Gilreath). Cf. Howes M129; cf. Bennett 79; cf. Field 992; cf.

"Many words are not wanting to preface so humble a performance as this little book, which aims only at affording amusement to children of an early age. The author I willing to hope, from her own recent recollection of the taste of persons at that period of life, that the form of Dialogue, though not very usual in such works, will not make it unpleasing to them, if she has succeeded in the endeavour to render the story interesting, and the language familiar.To call attention to the principles it has been her wish to instil, is unnecessary; since, if they are not apparent to the young reader, her attempt must have failed so entirely, as to be undeserving of any notice whatever."[Gumuchian 3822].

        Vergleichende Untersuchung über die Haut des Menschen und der Haus-Säugethiere, besonders in Beziehung auf die Absonderungs-Organe des Haut-Talges und des Schweisses (pp.399-418, 2 Taf.).

      - Arch. Anat. Phys., 1835.- Berlin, Verlag G.Eichler, 1835, 8°, VI, 617, (1) pp., 14 Tafeln, Pappband d.Zt; minimal fleckig. First Edition! - - "It did not take long before Breschet s findings and pictures of the structures inside the skin were picked up by microanatomists working on skin in German settings. In 1835 Ernst Friedrich Gurlt (1794-1882) published a paper on comparative research of the human skin and the skin of pet animals in the Archiv für Anatomie, Physiologie und wissenschafiliche Mediän. Gurlt specialised in the anatomy and physiology of domesticated mammals (Haussäugethiere) and was especially interested in the excretion of sebum and sweat by the skin. He argued that only after the latest developments in anatomy and physiology had Breschet and de Vauzeme finally proven the true existence of the 'sweat glands'. He dismissed all the work before the studies of Breschet: - - "Die Haut des Menschen (.) ist zwar schon von den altern Anatomen vielfältig untersucht worden, aber in Beziehung auf die Absonderungsorgane des Haut-Talges und des Schweisses nur mit wenig Glück. Bald nahm man Bälge, oder Drüsen für die Absonderung des Haut-Talges (der Hautschmiere) an, bald läugnete man ihr Dasein; eben so verhielt es sich mit den sogenannten Hautporen oder Schweisslöchern, die man als bestehend voraussetzte, ohne sie wirklich nachgewiesen zu haben, oder ohne Grund wegläugnete. Erst in der jüngsten Zeit ist es gelungen, über diesen Gegenstand wie über so viele andere in der Anatomie und Physiologie, mehr Licht zu verbreiten." - - As in Breschet's work, pictures played a pivotal role in Gurlt's argument. A total of 11 figures on two separate copper engraved plates accompanied the text. In the plates Gurlt depicted and compared cross-sections of human, horse, cow, dog, swine and sheep skin. Apart from referring to his own pictures, Gurlt repeatedly mentioned Breschet's illustrations of the structures responsible for the excretion of sweat." When discussing the sweat glands, for example, Gurlt compared his own findings with Breschet's illustrations. He commented on the size, form and position of the sweat glands as they appeared in Breschet's figures." He further argued that Breschet and his colleague did not properly explain the typical structure of the little balls in the sweat glands and that this structure was not well indicated in their illustrations. Taking the schematic compositions of the internal structure of the skin by Breschet as a starting point, Gurlt further articulated and redefined the specifics of the sweat glands in his article and engravings. Gurlt thereby continued the schematic way of visualising the inner structures of human (and animal) skin. - - The article by Gurlt signified a shift to a vocabulary and visual articulation of sweat glands replacing the dominance of skin pores and sweat channels. In a discussion of the physiology of the skin in a German handbook in 1844 the physiologist Krause called Gurlt s images "the first faithful depictions of the actual glands"." Remarkably enough Krause dismissed the work of Breschet and de Vouzeme because of its many errors. The microscopical picture by Gurlt now represented the model image of the sweat glands. Gurlt's figure of the human sweat glands had already been directly copied by Rudolph Wagner in 1839 in his physiological plates (figure 3.7). Eventually, Gurlt's figure served as a template in the standardisation of a microscopical depiction of the sweat glands of the skin. Microscopical research had therefore articulated a new symbolic scheme of the anatomical composition of skin." Mieneke Mathilde Geertruida te Hennepe : DEPICTING SKIN.

        [MEXICAN WAR CLAIMS CASES, LAND DEVELOPMENT IN ILLINOIS, THE ILLINOIS AND MICHIGAN CANAL, RAILROAD SURVEYS, AND MORE, CONTAINED IN A GROUP OF FORTY MANUSCRIPT DOCUMENTS, LETTERS, AND PRINTED CIRCULARS FROM THE PAPERS OF CONGRESSMAN J.A. ROCKWELL OF CONNECTICUT]

      [Various places. 1835-1859].. Approximately 120pp. of manuscript material, as well as ten printed documents and one manuscript land survey. Octavo, quarto, and folio documents. Minor loss to the left margin of one letter, some minor scattered wear and soiling. Overall, very good. A collection of documents from the papers of John Arnold Rockwell, many of which relate to the claims of American citizens against the Mexican government following the Mexican-American War and Mexico's struggles with Texas. The documents include nine items related to the seizure of the American schooner Eclipse in the harbor of Tabasco in February 1836. Mention is also made of the outbreak of hostilities in Texas - the battle for the Alamo took place in February and March 1836 - and the American Vice Consul H.E. Coleman states that "my influence with the authorities at this place is no more than any other resident American & the most insignificant municipal officer could imprison me (an American Vice Consul) with the same impunity he would any foreigner.... They are quite inveterate against Americans & the American Nation on acct of the existing war in Texas...." There is also a manuscript deposition by James Morgan regarding the destruction of New Washington, on Galveston Bay in Texas, by Santa Ana and his troops in April 1836. Items relating to the Mexican-American War include one printed document and manuscript deposition by American citizen Archibald Varnom, a blacksmith who was stranded in Mexico City at the commencement of hostilities with the U.S. in 1846. There are seven items relating to the claims of the family of Thomas Godden, a machinist and manufacturer of cotton goods, and a naturalized American citizen, who was living with his family in Puebla in 1846. Godden and his family provided aid to the American troops and suffered losses of property as a consequence. The destruction of his home and livelihood led to Godden's death "of a broken heart" according to one witness. There are three printed documents related to Rockwell's purchase of land from the Illinois and Michigan Canal Company. Other material related to land development in Illinois include a printed document from the "Rockwell Land Company" for the town of Rockwell, which was laid out in 1836 but failed just a few years later; land claims from French heirs related to property owned in Missouri and Illinois, when it was still part of French Louisiana. Also a lengthy manuscript letter, signed, from Robert Schuyler relating to the development of the Great Western Rail Way Company and the construction of the line from Cairo City through the center of the state; Schuyler (d.1855), considered "America's first railroad king," was president of the Illinois Central Railroad, and was later involved in a major scandal involving the issuing of fraudulent stock certificates. Other material relates to the expansion of the country after the Mexican-American War, including the acquisition and administration of California, the boundary between the U.S. and England in the Pacific Northwest, the construction of a canal or railway across the Isthmus, and more. There are signed letters from Reverdy Johnson (1796-1876), Maryland lawyer and diplomat; Edward Everett (1794-1865), Secretary of State under President Fillmore; and a manuscript copy of a letter from Jeremiah S. Black (1810-1883), Attorney General under President Buchanan regarding a California land claim, among others. J.A. Rockwell (1803-1861), born in Norwich, Connecticut, was a graduate of Yale College in 1822. He studied law, was judge of the county court, and was elected to the U.S. Congress in 1845. He was chairman of the Committee on Claims in the Thirtieth Congress; he was unsuccessful in his bid for reelection in 1848. He subsequently practiced law before the court of claims in Washington until his death in 1861. All told, a rich collection of diplomatic and military history during a major period of American expansion. Amore detailed inventory of the collection available on request.

        [Manuscript Book Review]: James Thacher's "History of the Town of Plymouth"

      [Massachusetts]. [1835]. Manuscript. Thirty densely written pages in ink on thirty loose quarto sheets. Scattered chipping to the edges, with some loss of text on the last sheet, good or better. A scholarly, unsigned review of the History of the Town of Plymouth by James Thacher, written to coincide with the publication of the second American edition in 1835. Thacher, a distinguished surgeon in the Continental Army, gained a national reputation as a medical scholar and historian. His History of the Town of Plymouth was the first town history published in the United States and generated much popular interest. In this critical review, the author addresses the merits of Thacher's work, and includes his or her own detailed account of the current state of historical writing in the United States. A final draft in a neat, legible hand with scattered annotations and corrections, it was perhaps intended as a compositor's copy but was not published. .

        A colorful French engraving commemorating the assassination attempt on King Louis Philippe by the "Infernal Machine"

      "Hand-colored woodcut engraving entitled, ""MACHINE INFERNLE DU 38 JUILLET 1835"", 10"" x 12.5"" (sight), (Belfort: de l'Imprimerie de J[ean]. P[aul]. Clerc, [c. 1835]) with lengthy printed explanation in French below. One faint hint of toning in explanatory text below, else fine condition. Not examined out of frame. The ""Machine Infernale"" was a unique weapon consisting of 25 barrels which could be fired simultaneously. It was the creation of Giuseppe Marco Fieschi, a Corsican veteran of Napoleon's Russian invasion who as was also involved in King Joachim Murat of Naples' failed attempt to regain his kingdom in 1815. Deported to France soon afterwards, he spent about a decade in prison for the theft of a steer. Soon after the July Revolution (1830), Fieschi moved to Paris where he obtained a pension and a government job by the means of forged papers. His frauds were soon detected and he found himself out of work. In 1831 he began designing, with the help of his neighbor Pierre Morey, the 25 barreled gun which would make him infamous. After much drama, Fieschi managed to produce a working model, which he deployed from a third story window overlooking the Boulevard du Temple where King Louis-Philippe was conducting the annual review of the Paris National Guard in commemoration of the July Revolution. The discharge of the weapon killed eighteen people, but a ball only grazed Louis-Philipe's head. Fieschi was severely injured by the gun when it went off, but physicians worked heroically to save his life (for the sake of meting out justice). He was guillotined with two of his co-conspirators on February 19, 1836."

        Sex månader i Westindien, år 1825. Öfversättning från engelskan med anmärkningar af C. A. Carlsson.

      1835 - Linköping, A. Petre, 1835. 8:o. (8),214,(1) pp. Uncut and sewn in contemporary stiff grey paper wrappers with MS label. Spine partly defective and faded. Old repairs to title, pp. (4-5), 15, 65 och 195, all done with grey paper. A couple of old signatures. Translated from the third enlarged edition 1832. C. A. Carlsson was vicar of the Swedish congregation on St. Barthélemy 1830-33 and started a school "for the children of better men" on the island. After his return to Sweden he translated this work by Coleridge and supplied it with his own commentaries, in which he, among other things, made spiteful remarks about the methodists, whose influence he had tried to marginalize during his stay on St. Barthélemy. Carlsson's many comments give interesting insights into the daily life in the Swedish colony and his voyage to and from the island. For example, the text contains additions by Carlsson on the "talkytalky language" ("the gibberish of the negroes"), on "colourful concubines" and his own observations such as the sharks' preference for the flesh from white before that of black men. Carlsson hesitantly supports a gradual liberation of the West-Indian slaves, but turns against the unfavourable descriptions of the plantation owners: "A plantationer loves his slave as the Swedish farmer loves his horse, that is, often more than his wife." In fact, Carlsson's own opinion of the slaves mirrors the racist beliefs of his time: "The negro, as I have been able to observe him in the West Indies, is barely half human; the rest is ape and tiger. [.] The negro as a slave is humble and often faithful to a master who understands to treat him with earnest kindness; but in freedom he is the most reckless and conceited being on Earth".

He referred to digitalis as the "opium of the heart". Along with cardiologist Pierre Potain (1825-1901), he performed studies of "heart sounds" involving the differentiation between normal and abnormal heart rhythms. - - "Vol. 2, page 238: 'Bouillaud's disease' - rheumatic endocarditis. Although not first to note the cardiac manifestations of acute rheumatism, Bouillaud was the first to demonstrate the frequency and importance of heart disease co-incident with acute articular rheumatism. The above work includes the first description of a case of mitral disease with articular rheumatism." - - "Landmark in cardiology, representing the application of Laennec's auscultation to diseases of the heart. He first described and named endocarditis, first recorded accurate methodes of weighing and measuring the heart, and described the 'bruit de diable', and the bruit de rappel' in mital stenosis...

        The Life of Admiral Viscount Exmouth

      New York: William Jackson, 1835. 12mo. xii, 287 pp. b/w plates. Edward Pellew entered the navy in 1770, went to America with Burgoyne in 1776 and acquitted himself well in battle on Lake Champlain, then was taken prisoner at Saratoga. His mostly successful career continued until 1791 when he was put on half pay and tried his hand at farming. The war with France saved him from a life behind the plow and he took command of the 36 gun frigate “Nymphe”. Though shorthanded she captured the first French vessel of the war, and important French codes, resulting in PellewÂ’s being knighted. A long and exciting second career ensued, the whole being worthy of a 20 volume series of naval fiction. Even if youÂ’re not planning such a work, you can get the facts in this book, which the DNB cites as the principal authority. This is a remarkable first American edition, with a folding “Plan of Sea Defenses at Algiers” lithographed by “N. Currier. No.1 Wall St, N.Y.” Currier opened his Wall Street office in 1835. This early lithograph is of such scarcity that it is not recorded in ConninghamÂ’s Currier & Ives Prints: An Illustrated Check List (New York, 1949). Worldcat shows only two libraries, both in Canada, holding copies of this American edition. Bookplate of Rear Admiral S.F. DuPont on the front paste down.
