        O KA HULIANO, HE OLELO NIELE IA E MOAKAKA AI KE ANO O KA PALAPALA HEMOLELE

      Oahu: Mei Pai Palapala a na Misionairi, 1836.. 152pp. 12mo. Contemporary calf, spine tooled in gilt, leather label. Hinges lightly rubbed. Bookplate on front pastedown. Fine. The second edition, with a printing of only 3,000 copies. The title translates as: "The inquiry, questions illustrating the meaning of the Holy Scriptures. A good thing for Sunday Schools. Book I. About the story of Jesus and his miracles." This copy is from the library of James F. Hunnewell (1832- 1910), with his bookplate. Hunnewell was a Boston book collector and bibliographer. He published a BIBLIOGRAPHY OF THE HAWAIIAN ISLANDS in 1869. His father, James Hunnewell, became familiar with the islands when the ship he was on was sold to Hawaiian chiefs; 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 and the first printing press. 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, Masachusetts, 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. A lovely association copy in a beautiful contemporary binding. FORBES 1019. JUDD 141. DAB IX, p.381.

        First Annual Report of the Colonization Commissioners of South Australia to His Majesty's Principal Secretary of State For the Colonies 1836

      London: House of Commons, 28 July, 1836. Tall quarto, 40pp. with handcoloured lithographed sheet; bound in splendid full crimson crushed morocco with gilt lettering by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Letter of instruction to William Light. A significant publication in the early history of South Australia, being the first report of the Colonization Commission tasked with selling land in the infant colony to provide the capital for colonial development. The sale of land in South Australia owed much to the 'science of colonial management' propounded by Edward Wakefield Gibbon, and within a decade was confounded with difficulty as the colony accrued massive debt from the British government. This report publishes important correspondence relating to the early survey, including the letters of instruction to Surveyor-General William Light and his assistants (including Boyle Travers Finniss). The lithographed map by Arrowsmith is titled "Part of Southern Australia from the 132 to 141 degree of East Longitude".From the library of Dr. Robert Edwards, AO, in a remarkably bold and handsome binding by master English bookbinders Sangorski and Sutcliffe.

        SKETCH OF THE SEMINOLE WAR, AND SKETCHES DURING A CAMPAIGN. By a Lieutenant of the Left Wing

      Charleston: Dan J. Dowling, 1836.. [2],[6],311,[1]pp. Antique half calf and marbled boards. A couple of small ink notations to the outer margin of text, light foxing. Untrimmed, very good. One of the rarest personal narratives of the second Seminole War of 1835-36. The volume was absent from the Streeter collection, which contained some of the rarest Seminole War material. It is also lacking from several otherwise exhaustive collections of southern military history. The author was an officer in the South Carolina volunteer regiment commanded by Col. A.H. Brisbane. James Servies, in the new edition of his BIBLIOGRAPHY OF WEST FLORIDA, identifies the author as W.W. Smith on the basis of a NILES WEEKLY REGISTER article about the book. Smith gives a general history of the beginning of the war, then proceeds to a narrative of his experience with the South Carolina volunteers between the formation of the regiment in January 1836 and the termination of their service at St. Augustine in May. He gives a lively firsthand account of the campaign and his part in it, with interesting observations on the land, natural history, and Indians, as well as military details. He also provides a "Vocabulary of the Seminole language." HOWES S284. SERVIES, FLORIDA 1913. CLARK III:237. GILCREASE-HARGRETT, p.336. FIELD 1418. EBERSTADT 103:106. SABIN 81536.

        Capriccio for horn solo woodwinds and brass. Autograph manuscript full score. Composed for Queen Victoria's visit to Woburn Abbey in 1841. Apparently unpublished

      Folio (ca. 303 x 240 mm). [25], [i] (blank) pp. Notated in black ink on paper with the watermark "SE & Co. 1836." 20 staves per page, drawn with rastrum. Partially paginated. Undated, but ca. 1841. With autograph titling "Capriccio – Musica del M.o F. Schira" and inscription "Composto in Occasione della visita della Regina al Castello di Woburn del Duca di Bedford", most probably in Schira's hand, to upper and lower blank margins of first page. Occasional autograph corrections, annotations in Italian and English, performance markings, and cuts in black ink and pencil in Italian and English. Scored for flute, oboe, clarinet, horn obbligato, 2 horns, and bassoon, the work comprises several interlinked movements, which incorporate two British national songs, "God Save the Queen" (the national anthem) and "Rule Brittania," as well as two variations and two short cadenzas for solo horn. Loosely sewn. Light dampstaining, fraying, and occasional tearing to outer edges; moderate soiling to first page and lower corners; occasional light smudging not affecting music; pp. 21-22 creased at folds. Together with: A complete set of manuscript parts, notated principally by one copyist. Contemporary ivory paper wrappers. Folio (ca. 303 x 240 mm). Horn obbligato: [11], [i] (blank) pp.; flute [11], [i] (blank) pp.; oboe: [12] pp.; clarinet: [12] pp.; bassoon: [12] pp.; 2 horns: [21], [i] (blank) pp. Notated in black ink on paper with watermark "SE & Co. 1836." 12 staves per page, drawn with rastrum. Autograph titling "Capriccio – Musica del M.o F. Schira" to blank upper margin of first pages; occasional annotations, corrections, erasures, and cuts in pencil and black ink – some autograph – throughout; some passages of music perhaps copied by Schira himself. Upper wrappers inscribed "Signor Puzzi..," most likely a reference to the great horn virtuoso Giovanni Puzzi, for whom this work was probably composed. Edges of wrappers and some leaves with minor dampstaining and foxing; final pages of each part with remnants of adhesive slightly affecting music, as well as one or more thin strips of blank paper partially (or formerly) laid down over one or more staves; occasional minor tears with slight loss, and wear to edges not affecting music; light bleeding; pp. 9-10 of flute part folded into inner margin with 4 vertical creases. . Apparently unpublished. Not in Grove works list. As the inscription indicates, the Capriccio was composed for the visit of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert to Woburn Abbey, the residence of the Duke of Bedford, on July 26-29, 1841. According to the Morning Post (July 28, 1841), Giovanni Puzzi (1792-1876), the most celebrated horn virtuoso of his time, was contracted to superintend "the band and all musical arrangements" for this special occasion. Elizabeth Bradley Strauchen, "Giovanni Puzzi: His Life and Work..." (D. Phil thesis, University of Oxford, 2000), p. 85. Schira's Capriccio, which showcased Puzzi and his small "band" of wind instruments, was probably one such "musical arrangement." As the present score and parts include additional performance markings, corrections, cuts, and other signs of use, it is possible that Puzzi and his musicians performed from them. Puzzi was "principal horn at the KingÂ’s Theatre, the Philharmonic Society (1821–4) and the Concert of Ancient Music (1823–6), as well as at provincial festivals; he was also the first professor of horn at the Royal Academy of Music, where he played in the Royal Academic Concerts. He also organized a chamber music series in 1837, known as Classical Concerts for Wind Instruments... [Puzzi] enjoyed a virtual monopoly of private and benefit concerts for over 20 years. The large body of works composed and arranged by Puzzi formed the basis of his solo repertory, and reflects both the extreme popularity of the Italian Opera and the fascination for virtuoso performers that was then characteristic of London musical life. His works include a concerto, fantasias and numerous vocal arrangements with horn obbligato (MSS in GB-Lbl). These compositions, and those written for him by contemporaries, represent the apex of chromatic hand horn technique in the cor-mixte style." Elizabeth Bradley Strauchen in Grove online Schira was an Italian composer, conductor, and teacher. "After a brief visit to Paris in 1842, Schira was appointed director of music at the newly opened Princess's Theatre in London. In 1843 he conducted a short season under Alfred Bunn's management at Covent Garden, and in the following year joined Bunn at Drury Lane on the resignation of Benedict as conductor. He remained there intermittently until 1847, conducting both foreign adaptations and a number of English operas... Schira conducted Bunn's 1852 season at Drury Lane, but thereafter he devoted himself to teaching singing... while continuing to compose... He was totally opposed to any style other than the Italian, which led the Musical Times to declare, on his death, that ‘his music suffered mainly from the disavantage of being out of fashionÂ’... Despite his narrow musical tastes, Schira was, after Verdi, one of the outstanding Italian opera composers of his generation. Arditi, who conducted the première of Niccolò de' Lapi, justly described the work as ‘a patriotic opera Â… written in the genuine Italian style Â… fervid, melodious, and free from pretence or assumptionÂ’. Selvaggia, his masterpiece, is even more powerful: its through-composed texture sustains a consistent dramatic tension which clearly foreshadows the methods of Puccini." Nigel Burton and Keith Horner in Grove online.

        Voyage Autour du Monde, fait par ordre de sa majesté l'Empereur Nicolas 1er sur la Corvette Le Seniavine, dans les années 1826, 1827, 1828 et 1829 [with] Partie nautique text volume

      Paris and St. Petersburg: Lithographie de Engelmann et Compagnie; C. Hintze, 1836. Two volumes comprising: Atlas folio, with 51 lithographed plates and three maps (one folding); light water stains on the upper margins of the text pages and the plates; original quarter morocco and marbled boards; the quarto text volume with five coastal profiles (two folding) and 10 maps (one folding); including a large folding map of "Aliaska" tipped in between pages 274 and 275 (not mentioned by Lada-Mocarski or any other authority); a few pages lightly foxed, and with marginal annotations in pencil and in ink by the Pacific scholar and collector George Davidson and his ownership signature on the title-page; contemporary half roan, cloth sides renewed. Exceptionally rare Russian voyage into the north Pacific. One of the rarest and most beautiful of all illustrated Pacific voyage publications, featuring fine lithographic plates of Alaska and the Northwest Coast, the Caroline Islands, Guam and the Philippines.We offer here a substantial portion of the very rare official account of the Lütke voyage. The full account of the voyage comprises two discrete publications since the Historical and Hydrographical sections were separately published by different publishers. In addition, some parts were available in either Russian or French versions (the complicated bibliography of these editions is fully dealt with by Lada-Mocarski in his Bibliography of Books on Alaska published before 1868).All printed materials relating to the Lütke voyage are notoriously rare. This is the famous American voyage collector Fred Ellis's set of this voyage, which comprises the Historical Atlas, published in Paris by Engelmann to accompany either French or Russian versions of the text; the two text volumes for the Partie Historique are supplied here in a modern facsimile of the French version (Amsterdam, 1971). These are accompanied by the Russian-published French-language text volume of the Hydrographical section. The Hydrographical atlas is not presentComplete sets of both parts (that is, with both text and atlas volumes) are virtually impossible to obtain; the French edition, which is just as rare as the Russian, is said to have been almost entirely bought by Russians (Brunet, quoted by Lada-Mocarski) explaining its extraordinary rarity today.The Lütke expedition of 1826-1829 was the last great Russian scientific voyage to the Northwest coast of America. The expedition sailed to the Pacific via Cape Horn, and reached Sitka on the Northwest Coast and spent over a month there. They continued north to Unalaska and the Aleutian Islands, before sailing into the Bering Sea and surveying the coast of the Alaskan Peninsula. As winter approached the expedition turned southward to the Caroline group of Micronesia where they stayed for most of 1828, followed by Guam and the Philippines. The return voyage stopped at St Helena Island in the south Atlantic before finishing at Kronstadt in September 1829.The 51 plates in the atlas, many of them comprising two images, were lithographed by the Parisian specialist printer Engelmann from the original drawings. Working in Paris from 1816, Godefroy Engelmann was the pioneer and best exponent of the new techniques of lithography in book illustration that gradually replaced older methods from the 1820s onwards. In this copy the plates are examples of the more desirable form identified by Lada-Mocarski, printed on fine India paper and mounted into the atlas rather than printed directly onto thick paper.Renowned for their exceptional detail and finesse, the plates are rivalled only by those of Choris as the finest nineteenth-century depictions of the Pacific. They comprise sensitive portraits, landscapes, village scenes, native habitations, canoes and sailing craft, tools and weapons, and more. The depictions of tropical foliage are of exceptional quality. The plates are significant as an ethnographic record of the indigenous peoples of the Northwest coast, Unalaska, Kamchatka and present-day Micronesia.

In 1843 he conducted a short season under Alfred Bunn's management at Covent Garden, and in the following year joined Bunn at Drury Lane on the resignation of Benedict as conductor. He remained there intermittently until 1847, conducting both foreign adaptations and a number of English operas... Schira conducted Bunn's 1852 season at Drury Lane, but thereafter he devoted himself to teaching singing... while continuing to compose... He was totally opposed to any style other than the Italian, which led the Musical Times to declare, on his death, that 'his music suffered mainly from the disavantage of being out of fashion'... Despite his narrow musical tastes, Schira was, after Verdi, one of the outstanding Italian opera composers of his generation. Arditi, who conducted the premiere of Niccolo de' Lapi, justly described the work as 'a patriotic opera written in the genuine Italian style fervid, melodious, and free from pretence or assumption'. Selvaggia, his masterpiece, is even more powerful: its through-composed texture sustains a consistent dramatic tension which clearly foreshadows the methods of Puccini." Nigel Burton and Keith Horner in Grove online.

      [Wien], 19. III. 1836.. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo.. An den Musikverleger Anton Diabelli, zum Tode des Bassisten Gottfried Reggla, für den er das komische Bassduett "Der Doktor und der Patient" geschrieben hatte: "Der Tod unseres guten Reggla hat mich sehr ergriffen; ein in jeder Beziehung schwerer Verlust. Es drängte sich mir wohl gleich die Frage auf, ob wir nun den Titel des Duetts ändern sollen? - ich möchte sie kaum bejahend lösen. Mir wenigstens wird Reggla's Nahme auf dem Titelblatte als ein werthes Denkmahl an den lieben Abgeschiedenen erschienen, - vielleicht dürfte noch mancher so wie ich darüber urtheilen, und gerade deßhalb das Werk sich anschaffen, weil es zugleich als Souvenir des so früh Heimgegangenen ihnen dienen wird. Übrigens stelle ich es ganz Ihrem Ermessen anheim, was hier am zweckmäßigsten zu thun ist. - Ich bin selbst von einem heftigen Fieber aufs Krankenlager geworfen worden, und bin noch nicht im Stande auszugehen, sonst würde ich Sie schon aufgesucht haben. - Für die mir übersandten 3 Exemplare des spanischen Duetts danke ich schönstens; eines werde ich der Frau v. Kiss bringen, eines behalte ich mir, u. eines bekommt Ciccimarra zur Anempfehlung an seine Schüler. Wenn Sie mir noch 3 Exemplare senden wollten, ich könnte sie ebenfalls auf eine für uns beyde vortheilhafte Weise an gewisse musikalische Notabilitäten, die das Duett doch nicht kaufen, wohl aber es überall preisen werden, vertheilen. Wollen Sie sonach, wenn es Ihnen möglich erscheint, mir durch den Überbringer dieses Briefs noch 3 Exemplare zukommen lassen. Sollte eine Correctur des italienischen Stücks kommen, so lange ich noch Patient bin, so bitte ich um deren Überschickung, Riemerstraße Nr. 812, 2ter Stock [...]".

      Stuttgart, Hallberger, 1836.. Zweite (Dritter u. Vierter Theil) und Dritte Auflage (Erster und Zweiter Theil). XVI, 324, XIII, 413, XXXI, 420, VIII, 423 S. Vollständiges Werk in 4 Bänden (gebunden in 2 Bänden). Grüne Halbleinenbände der Zeit mit goldgeprägten Rückentiteln; Buchdeckel in grün-schwarzer Marmorierung; marmorierter Buchschnitt. Format: 16,5 x 12,5 cm. Mit 7 ganzseitigen Kupferstich-Illustrationen, darunter zwei Landschaftskupfer als Frontispizes des dritten und vierten Teils, ein Faltkupfer einer britischen Parkanlage (Warwick Castle) sowie insbesondere zwei kolorierte Kupfertafeln, die Szenen eines Kasperletheaters zeigen. Geistreiche Reisebeschreibung des Landschaftsgestalters, Schriftstellers und Abenteurers Fürst Hermann von Pückler-Muskau (1785 - 1871). Im Besonderen aufgrund der von ihm visionär gestalteten Landschaftsparks in Muskau und später in Branitz gilt Pückler-Muskau heute als genialer Landschaftskünstler, der in der Umsetzung seiner gestalterischen Konzepte seiner Zeit in mancher Hinsicht voraus war; vor allem seine durch großflächigem Umpflanzungen geschaffenen "Blickachsen" gelten als zukunftsweisende Elemente moderner Parkgestaltung. Eine Schwester im Geiste fand der "Parkomane" in seiner neun Jahre älteren Ehefrau Lucie von Hardenberg (1776 - 1854), Tochter des preußischen Staatskanzlers und Reformers Karl August von Hardenberg (1750 - 1822), die Pücklers Leidenschaft teilte und rückhaltlos unterstützte. Popularität erlangte Pückler ferner durch seine ausgedehnten Reisen, insbesondere in den Nahen und Mittleren Osten, dessen Kultur und Lebensweise er wie kaum ein anderer Zeitgenosse studierte. Sein Versuch, die Quellen des Nils zu erforschen, führte ihn 1838 bis in den Sudan, bis er südlich von Khartum schwer an Malaria erkrankte und den Rückweg nach Europa antreten mußte. Pückler blieb der morgenländischen Kultur ein Leben lang verbunden, so ließ er sich gern in orientalischer Tracht abbilden. Anlaß seiner ab 1826 unternommenen europäischen Reisen war die finanzieller Notlage, in die Pückler infolge seines Unsummen verschlingenden Muskauer Parkprojektes geraten war. Im Einvernehmen mit Lucie ließ er sich von dieser scheiden (blieb ihr aber bis zu ihrem Tode verbunden) und suchte im Ausland in den dortigen Adelskreisen nach einer guten Partie, um auf diese Weise sein Landschaftsprojekt vollenden zu können. Das Vorhaben führte zwar nicht zum Erfolg, doch gewann Pückler vor allem in England, Wales und Irland durch das Studium der dortigen Park- und Landschaftsgestaltung neue Inspirationen, die er in Muskau, später in Branitz umsetzte. Grundlage der "Briefe eines Verstorbenen" waren ursprünglich Pücklers Briefe an seine Frau, in denen er diese über seine Unternehmungen, gesellschaftlichen Kontakte, auch seine Amouren auf dem laufenden hielt; Lucie war es auch, die auf die Idee der Veröffentlichung dieser Korrespondenz kam, die Pücklers Ruhm als Reiseschriftsteller begründen sollte. Der zwischenzeitlich nahezu vergessene Pückler ist heute als Landschaftsvisionär, nicht zuletzt aber auch aufgrund seines unkonventionellen, bisweilen als tollkühn bezeichneten Lebenswandels, mit dem er die strenge - oft vorgespiegelte - Sittlichkeit seiner Zeit- und Standesgenossen konterkarierte, wieder wesentlich stärker in den Blickpunkt des öffentlichen und kulturellen Interesses geraten. Der Fernsehsender Arte widmete ihm am 1. und 9. März 2015 eine einstündige, mit Spielszenen angereicherte Dokumentation. Originalausgaben von Pücklers Briefen, Schriften und Reiseberichten die er unter den Pseudonymen "Der Verstorbene" und "Semilasso" veröffentlichte, sind heute nur noch selten anzutreffen.. Die Bände in gutem Zustand, allenfalls leicht berieben. (Leere) Vorsatzblätter des 1./2. Bandes mit kleinen Randausrissen; Seiten partiell etwas fleckig. In toto gutes Exemplar dieser sehr seltenen Ausgabe. Weitere Fotos auf der Homepage des Antiquariats (bitte Art.-Nr. auf der Angebotsseite in das Suchfeld eingeben).

        Sketches by "Boz," illustrative of every-day life, and every day people

      London: John Macrone,, 1836 & 1837. In two volumes. Illustrations by George Cruikshank. [… The second series. Complete in one volume.] Together 2 works in 3 volumes. First series: original dark green regular-patterned straight-grain morocco cloth, spines blocked and lettered in gilt. Second series: original rose-pink morocco cloth, sides blocked in blind with a central wreath, spine blocked in blind with a circular pattern, lettered and decorated in gilt over a panel of cloth stained black, yellow endpapers. Individually housed in matching green half morocco book-form slipcases, with chemises. First series with a little unobtrusive cloth repair to joints, front board of vol. I slightly cockled, small split to cloth at centre of rear joint of vol. II, front free endpaper in vol. I beginning to separate from following leaf; second series neatly rebacked with original spine laid down with loss of lower lettering panel, spine a little faded, inner hinges cracked but holding firm. Together, very occasional light spotting but generally clean, the plates with slight oxidisation as usual: a very good set. First series: frontispieces and 16 engraved plates. Second series: etched frontispiece, extra engraved title, and 8 engraved plates. With 2 plates by Cruikshank for later editions loosely inserted. Book plates of Frederic S. Clarke, the Dickens collector Robert Lloyd Henderson (plate dated 1932), and Alain de Suzannet (1882?-1950). First editions of Dickens's first books, both the first and second series, from the collection of Comte Alain de Suzannet, one of the finest ever assembled (sold at auction, Sotheby's, 1971, lot 5), having previously been in two similarly celebrated collections. Eckel's contention that there were two issues of the second series, distinguished by the presence or lack of the list of illustrations (present here) has lost force over the years. Sadleir was puzzled by it, and Smith, having scrutinized 18 copies, finds that no consistent states of binding or printing can be associated with early or late copies. Smith notes that Macrone was anxious to print it in time for Christmas and hurried it through the presses, leaving many mistakes uncorrected.

        Rheinische Geschichten und Sagen. Erster ( - Vierter und letzter) Band. In vier Bänden. Mit elf mehrfach gefalteten Stammtafeln .

      Frankfurt am Main, in der Hermannschen Buchhandlung, 1816 (Bd. 4:) Siegmund Schmerber 1836. - Schwarze Halblederbände mit Rückenvergoldung, leicht berieben. Erste Ausgabe. Goedeke V,376,29,3 (3 Bände) und VII,240,11,5. Nur vereinzelt etwas fleckig, einige Falttabellen ragen schmal über den Schnitt hinaus und sind ebd. etwas angestaubt und rissig. Vollständig mit dem vierten Band, der vermutlich auch separat erschien, ist das Werk sehr selten, besonders in so guten Zustand. Der Titel ist etwas irreführend. Denn tatsächlich handelt es sich um eine Geschichte der mittelrheinischen Gegenden von der germanischen Vorzeit bis in die Gegenwart, von Vogt, dem Lehrer Metternichs, zur Stärkung der rheinischen, antipreußischen Position gedacht. Bd. 4 hat einen zweiten Titel: Geschichte des Verfalls und Untergang der Rheinischen Staaten des alten deutschen Reichs. (Ohne Ort 1833). - Der Historiker Nicolaus (Niclas) Vogt (1756-1836) wurde in der anregenden und freisinnigen Atmosphäre der Stadt Mainz ausgebildet und früh Professor der Geschichte an der dortigen Universität. "Zu seinen Hörern zählte auch Metternich, der ihm zeitlebens freundschaftlich verbunden blieb. Während der französischen Besatzung folgte Vogt dem kurfürstlichen Hof nach Aschaffenburg, war dort Schulinspektor und nach Heinses Tod Bibliothekar. Vogts Werk stand von Anbeginn unter dem Eindruck des Untergangs der alten europäischen Staatenordnung, als deren herausragende Zerstörer er Friedrich II. und später Napoleon ansah. In seinen Schriften begründete er staatsrechtlich, philosophisch und historisch ganz im Geiste der Restauration die Notwendigkeit eines rheinischen Staatenbundes als Gegengewicht zu Preußen, Österreich und dem nachrevolutionären Frankreich. Dieser Tendenz ist letztlich auch seine Sammlung 'Rheinische Geschichten und Sagen' verpflichtet." (Killy XII,52f.). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Lectures on the Morbid Anatomy of the Serous and Mucous Membranes.

All published. ix, [11], 402; viii, 541pp. London: Sherwood, Gilbert & Piper [Vol. I]; Simpkin, Marshall [Vol. II, pt. 1], 1836-40. 212 x 132 mm. Half calf, cloth boards, circa 1840. Rebacked, retaining original labels. Slight rubbing at corners. Tear in second leaf of Vol. II repaired. McGill College Medical Faculty Library inscription and stamp on titles. Very good copy.First Edition. Hodgkin was one of the distinguished pathologists connected with Guy's Hospital, where he served as demonstrator of morbid anatomy and curator of the museum from 1825-37. He was 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 his paper "On some morbid appearances of the absorbent glands and spleen" (Medico-Chirurgical Transactions 17 [1832]: 68-114).

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED BY WILLIAM ROBERTSON, REGARDING VIGILANTISM IN SAN ANTONIO, WRITTEN JUST AFTER THE CONCLUSION OF THE TEXAS REVOLUTION]

      San Antonio de Bexar. June 25, 1836.. [4]pp. Typical mailing folds. Very good. With the original mailing envelope. An interesting manuscript account of vigilante activity, and life in general in San Antonio two months after the Battle of San Jacinto, which brought victory and independence to the Republic of Texas. The first major campaign of the Texas Revolution took place at San Antonio de Bexar in October-December 1835, the only major Texian success other than San Jacinto. The Alamo occurred just four months prior to this. ^William Robertson writes to his brother that he still awaits the return of Capt. Pope from whom he expects to receive back pay so that he can send money to pay off a note. He proceeds then to relate the post-war excitement in San Antonio: ^"I suppose you have seen some accounts in the papers of the fights & disturbances in this city, during the past few weeks. Some short time before I came here there was an organized body of horse thieves & cattle thieves extending over a large portion of west Texas, & having San Antonio for their headquarters. They were carrying their depredations & oftentimes murders to such an extent & with such boldness, as could be endured no longer. A vigilance committee was organized in this place, who took the matter in hand. They published a list of the names of all who were known or strongly suspected of being connected with the thieves or gamblers warning them to leave instantly, and then kept constant patrols out who caught all they could find & hung them in the neighborhood of the city. In this way some 8 or 10 have been hung. Some few days before my arrival there was a desperate fight here with some four or five gamblers & the committee, in which three or four men were killed & several wounded. Since that time the city has been more quiet than for a long time previous & there is now probably as little fighting or gambling carried on here as in most western cities. Indeed it is quite a dull place at present." ^Robertson goes on to talk about the current devastating drought, observing that the "cotton in most places is past redemption." Then he mentions that he has made some acquaintances and observed some "very good Presbyterian preaching...as well as Methodist & Catholic." He closes the letter by assuring those back home that he is in good health. Robertson is believed to have come to Texas from Amherst County, Virginia to participate in the Texas Revolution. An outstanding letter with great San Antonio content during the Republic period. Accompanied by the original mailing envelope, addressed to "John B Robertson" in Amherst County, Virginia, with a three-cent stamp and postmarked from San Antonio.

        SKETCH OF THE SEMINOLE WAR, AND SKETCHES DURING A CAMPAIGN. By a Lieutenant of the Left Wing.

      Charleston: Dan J. Dowling, 1836. - [2],[6],311,[1]pp. Antique half calf and marbled boards. A couple of small ink notations to the outer margin of text, light foxing. Untrimmed, very good. One of the rarest personal narratives of the second Seminole War of 1835-36. The volume was absent from the Streeter collection, which contained some of the rarest Seminole War material. It is also lacking from several otherwise exhaustive collections of southern military history. The author was an officer in the South Carolina volunteer regiment commanded by Col. A.H. Brisbane. James Servies, in the new edition of his BIBLIOGRAPHY OF WEST FLORIDA, identifies the author as W.W. Smith on the basis of a NILES WEEKLY REGISTER article about the book. Smith gives a general history of the beginning of the war, then proceeds to a narrative of his experience with the South Carolina volunteers between the formation of the regiment in January 1836 and the termination of their service at St. Augustine in May. He gives a lively firsthand account of the campaign and his part in it, with interesting observations on the land, natural history, and Indians, as well as military details. He also provides a "Vocabulary of the Seminole language." HOWES S284. SERVIES, FLORIDA 1913. CLARK III:237. GILCREASE-HARGRETT, p.336. FIELD 1418. EBERSTADT 103:106. SABIN 81536.
