        Rienzi. Le Dernier des Tribuns,

      traduit de l'Anglais...par Mlle A. Sobry. xii, 498 pp.; 2 p.l., 507 pp. Two vols. 8vo, cont. green sheep-backed green boards maroquiné, single gilt fillet round sides, flat spine gilt. Paris: Fournier, 1836. First edition in French of one of Bulwer-Lytton's masterpieces. "Two years after the death of Scott, Bulwer's epic tale [The Last Days of Pompeii, 1834] of Roman indulgence, Christian martyrdom, and the cataclysmic eruption of Vesuvius established him as the most popular historical novelist of the day. This standing was confirmed by Rienzi, Last of the Tribunes (1835), about the rise and fall of the demagogue who briefly seized power from the warring baronial factions of late-fourteenth-century Rome...for Bulwer he is a hero and visionary, whose fanatical pursuit of popular liberty is fired by the inner strength of his aspiring spirit. An amalgam of careful scholarship and wilful invention, of political allegory, philosophical idealism, and extreme melodrama, the novel was the direct inspiration of Wagner's opera of the same name."-ODNB. Adèle Sobry specialized in making translations of English novels into French. Fine set, signed by Prince Dietrichstein on the free front endpaper of each volume. Rare.

        Printed certificate, completed in ink, certifying the renting of 118 Fulton Street, New York City, as a composing room, to James Gordon Bennett, founder of the New York Herald, by Joseph Heill, dated April 1836

      New York, 1836. (NEWSPAPERS) 4-1/2 x 7-1/2 inches, matted and framed to 7-1/4 x 10-1/2 inches overall. . Some fading to the ink, which remains entirely legible, dust soiling (particularly to mat) . James Gordon Bennett (1795-1872) a Scottish immigrant, worked in New York as a journalist and editor on several newspapers, and in May, 1835, established the New York Herald, a four-page daily newspaper which sold for a penny. Poverty compelled him to serve as reporter, editor, proofreader, folder and cashier, working out of a cellar where, notes the DAB, "a plank across two flour-barrels served as business and editorial desk". The paper found a readership, "its local news being comprehensive...its editorials brief, pungent, independent..." and circulation increased, requiring expanded facilities, which this lease on Fulton Street provided for. The document reads, in part: "This is to certify that I that I have this [blank] day of April 1836 Let and Rented unto James Gordon Bennett the first story of the rear building No. 118 Fulton Street New York to be used as a composing room for a printer & not to be used for any extra Hazerdous [sic] purposes or relet..." The annual rent was one hundred fifty dollars. From this austere start the Herald grew into one of the most important papers in the land, its advertising revenue surpassed only by that of the London Times. At Bennett's death, notes the DAB, "It was realized that...he had been perhaps the chief figure in a great and democratic revolution in journalism". Under the subsequent direction of his son, the Herald grew even more prosperous and influential. A UNIQUE, HISTORICAL RECORD OF THE BEGINNINGS OF A GREAT AMERICAN NEWSPAPER

        Ueber das Wesen des Verdauungsprocesses (pp.90-138). + Müller, Johannes & Schann, Theodor: Versuche über die Künstliche Verdauung des geronnenen Eiweisses (pp.66-89).

      . Arch. Anat. Phys., 1836/1. - Berlin, im Verlag von G. Eichler, 1836, 8°, 128 pp., 3 lith. Taf., orig. Broschur; feines und frisches unbeschnittenes Exemplar.. First Edition - "Three years after William Beaumont's conjecture (in Experiments and observations on the gastric juice) that gastric juice contained another active ingredient besides hydrochloric acid, Schwann identified this ingredient as the enzyme pepsin. Schwann's paper confirmed the fact, first stated by Prout and later by Beaumont, that the free acid in the stomach is hydrochloric, not lactic as some had claimed". -cf. Norman - Schwann's paper " 'Concerning the Nature of the Digestive Process' was easily the most sophisticated treatment of that subject during his time, and if measured against the background of contemporary concepts and methods available, one of the most penetrating of any time. By an interlocked sequence of incisive questions and carefully controlled experiments Schwann systematically narrowed down the many possibilities one could imagine concerning the nature and action of the 'digestive principle' to those alternatives which were compatible with empirical evidence. When he finished he had not only achieved a discovery later regarded as a landmark, but had reformulated the whole problem of what digestion may be. Whatever standard one applies to Schwann's memoir, whether one judges it by the degree to which it surpassed previous knowledge and conceptions of the digestive process or by its conformity to modern descriptions, his achievement was outstanding. The logic of his thought was precise and thorough, his methods were ingenious, and his vision was broad. He redefined the mode of action of the digestive agent and characterized the agent as a chemical substance. He demonstrated its operation on a major class of aliments, but saw beyond the prevalent idea that a single agent is responsible for the digestion of every type of food material. He contributed strong support for the view that digestion involves chemical changes as well as solution. He perceived that the action of the digestive principle comprised one instance of a whole new class of chemical processes peculiarly characteristic of organisms, and he provided a model for the experimental investigation of such processes" cf. Holmes, Claude Bernard and Animal Chemistry, pp.167-172 - Norman 1913; Garrison & Morton N. 901; Fulton, History of physiology, pp.190-191 - - This volume also contains: - Müller, Johannes (1801-1858) & Schwann, Theodor (1810-1882): "Versuche über die künstliche Verdauung des geronnenen Eiweisses." - Garrison-Morton No.990

In December 1835 Francis Bond Head was named to succeed Sir John Colborne as lieutenant governor of Upper Canada. Head after appointing three reformers to the Executive Council only have them quit and then dissolved the Assembly and calling an election in 1836 which he directly directly participated in aggressively canvasing for the Tories."Head's appeal was direct and simple: a vote for the Conservatives [Tories] was a vote for loyalty, order and prosperity. A vote for the Reformers represented only disloyalty and the menace of "outside intervention." He never explained what this might be, but he likely meant either American or French Canadian interference. In the name of the loyal militia he taunted, "Let them come, if they dare!" Head's fear-mongering electioneering won the day: Tories elected 44; Reformers elected 18.Head had also threatened the loss of the basic necessities of life when he repeatedly reminded the electors that "if you dispute with me you will only quarrel with your bread and butter." While he may not have "stolen the election" his unprecedented involvement in the political process and his uncompromising hostility towards the Reformers resulted in a rift and a rage in the province that led directly to the Rebellion of 1837." quoted from Upper Canada History web site.

        Autographed Letter Signed

      1836. unbound. 2 pages (front and back), 9.75 x 7.5 inches, no place, April 2, 1836. In this letter, Ruffin discusses acquiring new apprentices, in part: "...You will oblige me by examining the boy you spoke of, & if you will find he can read tolerably well, you will please have him sent as soon as possible..." Several folds and tiny ink smudges; still a beautiful piece in very good condition. Ruffin, an agrarian reformist and militant secessionist, was responsible for spearheading the agricultural renaissance in the Upper South through his discovery of the benefits of marl, a shell-like substance that neutralizes soil acidity. He was an ardent champion of the cause of Secession, and is reputed to have fired the first shot of the Civil War at Fort Sumter. Upon the defeat of the South, he wrapped himself in the Confederate flag and committed suicide.

October 7, 1894) was an American physician, poet, professor, lecturer, and author based in Boston. A member of the Fireside Poets, his peers acclaimed him as one of the best writers of the day. His most famous prose works are the "Breakfast-Table" series, which began with The Autocrat of the Breakfast-Table (1858). He was also an important medical reformer.Surrounded by Boston's literary elite?"which included friends such as Ralph Waldo Emerson, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, and James Russell Lowell?"Holmes made an indelible imprint on the literary world of the 19th century. Many of his works were published in The Atlantic Monthly, a magazine that he named. For his literary achievements and other accomplishments, he was awarded numerous honorary degrees from universities around the world. Holmes's writing often commemorated his native Boston area, and much of it was meant to be humorous or conversational. Some of his medical writings, notably his 1843 essay regarding the contagiousness of puerperal fever, were considered innovative for their time. He was often called upon to issue occasional poetry, or poems written specifically for an event, including many occasions at Harvard. Holmes also popularized several terms, including "Boston Brahmin" and "anesthesia".   Condition:  Condition is Good. Some wear to edges, boards darker in person, some darken marks to front, missing spine label, signature to upper half title, some blemishing throughout, hinges/text block are very good for close to 180 years old!!!

        An critic of slavery and one of two dissenters in Dred Scott v. Sandford, Supreme Court Justice John McLean purchases a slave, whom he would soon free

      "Autograph Endorsement by John McLean, ""J. Reeve / 16 Aug 1836"" on the integral address leaf of an Autograph Letter Signed ?John Reeve?, 2p, 8"" x 12"", with integral address leaf, Cincinnati, August 16, 1836 to Justice John McLean, concerning his purchase of a slave named Lucinda from Mr. A. Stephens of Kentucky, as well as a good description of the burgeoning commerce and resulting prosperity in early Cincinnati.Folds, minor marginal loss from seal tear, else fine condition.Although McLean was a longtime critic of slavery and one of two dissenting justices in the Dred Scott v. Sandford decision, he did own slaves from time to time. John Reeve, an agent in Cincinnati, arranges for the purchase of a girl by the name of Lucinda. Reeve writes to McLean, ""Mr. A Stephens the Gentleman from whom you purchased your Girl Lucinda, started from home on the day appointed, last week, per this City in order to Comply with his Contract, with you to execute the Bill of Sale, & Receive his money, but was taken Sick on the way Stop[p]ed at his Brotherinlaw, where he is Still confined & said to be dangerously ill his father, was here, took out the article after signing it himself & stated that his son would return it in a few days with the clothes of the Girl & Sign the release and Receive the funds. Today, his Brotherinlaw, writes me that he will not be able to come for some time, and wishes to know if he signs the paper in presence of some one or two Subscribing Witnesses in NY it will answer the same purpose..."" Interestingly, McLean had purchased other slaves, but with the express intention of freeing them in the future. For example, in 1823 McLean purchased a man by the name of Thomas Hawkins with the provision he would be freed ten years hence. McLean freed Hawkins in 1831, two years before the contract was set to expire.During his first year sitting on the Supreme Court in 1817, he ruled in Ohio v. Thomas D. Carneal that a slave from Kentucky, brought into Ohio, a state where slavery was constitutionally prohibited, was free - a decision that foreshadowed his dissent in Dred Scott v. Sandford in 1857. In his 1817 opinion, McLean described slavery as ""an infringement on the sacred rights of man"". His strong dissenting opinion in Dred Scott is said to have provoked Chief Justice John Taney to take a more extreme position in the decision. Not only did Taney rule that Dred Scott had to be returned to his owner, he held that African Americans, whether free or enslaved, could not be American citizens and enjoyed no standing to sue in federal court."

(aloni, dorso rifatto), pp. (4),50, con 10 interessanti tavv. f.t., litografate da Jacob, di cui 8 raffigurano le fasi dell?'intervento chirurgico e 2 i vari strumenti utilizzati.

Brunet,VI,7575 - Manca a Wellcome, Garrison Morton, Sallander. ?"Fra i chirurghi francesi merita di esser nominato in prima linea colui che ebbe fama del più celebre operatore e del più acuto diagnostico del suo tempo: il barone Dupuytren (1777-1835) che fu primario dell?'Hotel-Dieu e che raccolse intorno alla sua cattedra migliaia di allievi da tutti i paesi del mondo e, si può dire, tenne nelle sue mani lo scettro della chirurgia; uomo superiore anche per l?'eloquenza e per la profonda e varia cultura, ebbe anche nella vita sociale del tempo notevole influenza. Egli fu uno dei più coraggiosi affermatori dell?'importanza dell?'anatomia patologica per la chirurgia?". Così Castiglioni, pp. 717-718.

        Traité des fièvres ou irritations cérébro-spinales intermittentes, d'après des observations recueillies en France, en Corse et en Afrique.

      Paris, J.B. Baillière, 1836. - In-8, XII, 420 pp., 4 tablaux h.t. , demi-veau blond de l'époque, dos à nerfs orné, pièces de titre et de nom d'auteur vertes, rares rousseurs, bon exemplaire. Ouvrage remarquable, dont les retombées ont été considérables. Maillot donne une excellente description clinique du paludisme, avec de nombreuses observations cliniques ou anatomo-cliniques. Il affirme que les fièvres observées en Afrique relèvent de cette affection, et considère que celle-ci est produite par les miasmes de l'air. Il rapporte les résultats du traitement par le sulfate de quinine à fortes doses (0,8 à 2 g/jour) qu'il institua. Il réussit ainsi à faire tomber la mortalité de 23 à 3%. Ces résultats eurent pour conséquence de faire rentrer la quinine dans l'arsenal thérapeutique. Ce livre devint le bréviaire des médecins d'Afrique et des colonies. De plus, comme l'a noté Raphaël Blanchard, l'oeuvre de Maillot a eu des « conséquences sociales et politiques [. ] incalculables : elle a permis à l'homme de lutter avec succès contre la fièvre intermittente, qui rendait inhabitables nombre de contrées d'Europe ; elle a permis à l'Européen de s'installer dans des pays d'outre-mer, malgré le paludisme ; [. ] elle a rendu possible les conquêtes et les entreprises coloniales. » François Clément Maillot (1804-1894), né à Briey, devint médecin militaire et fut affecté aux hôpitaux d'Algérie. Il fut professeur à l'hôpital militaire d'instruction de Metz, puis au Val-de-Grâce. R. Blanchard. Centenaire de la naissance de Maillot. Bull. Soc. Fr. Hist. Méd. 1904, III, pp. 158-164 ; P.

        Slavery in Ohio! A friend asks Supreme Court Justice John McLean if ?the Gentleman from whom you purchased your girl Lucinda ? did inform you of her particular lameness in the shoulder?? In 1857, McLean dissented in the Dred Scott case, arguing that, although born a slave, Dred Scott was a U.S. citizen ? Cincinnati was now prospering ?and some of the people say it is all occasioned by the very rapid & almost spontaneous growth of Old Tippecanoe,? General William H. Harrison, who was running for President

      "Autograph Letter Signed ?John Reeves,? two pages, 7.75? x 12?, front & verso. Cincinnati, August 16, 1836. Addressed by him on verso of integral leaf, to Associate Justice of the Supreme Court ?Hon Judge McLean / Richland / Warren County / Ohio.? Docketed by John McLean: ?J. Reeves / 16 Aug 1836? on address leaf. Hand-delivered, no postal markings. Noted on address panel by Reeves: ?Politeness of / J.J. McDonald Esq.? Fine condition.In part, ?Mr A Stephens the Gentleman from whom you purchased your girl Lucinda, started from home on the Day appointed last week, for this City in order to comply with his contract with you to execute the Bill of sale & Receive his money, but was taken sick on the way, stoped [sic] at his Brother in Law, where he is still confines & said to be dangerously ill his father was here, took out the article after signing it himself & stated that his son would return it in a few days with the clothes of the Girl & sign the release & receive the funds. To day his BrotherinLaw writes me that he will not be able to come for some time, & wishes to know if he signs the paper in presence of some one or two subscribing Witness in Cty it will answer the same purpose ... the Old Gentleman told me he had nothing to do with her future performance, he only give a quit claim on his part, his son must be the responsible man. Did his son inform you of her particular lameness in the shoulder, perhaps you had better if you do not know, make some inquiry...??The City was never more healthy, nor our markets, any thing as large, this morning the line of wagons extended ... about ¾ of a mile. Vegetables of all kinds, sorts & sizes, fruits of every shape & density ?" in a word it was next thing to Phila & far beyond Baltimore & NYork. So you may understand we have a great quantity of all the staples & a few of the Luxuries of Life ?" and some of the people say it is all all occationed [sic] by the very rappid [sic] & almost spontaneous growth of Old Tippecanoe.? Reeves has underlined every concluding word from ?all all? to ?old Tippecanoe.?General William Henry Harrison, ?Old Tippecanoe,? had represented Cincinnati in the House of Representatives from 1816-1819, ran unsuccessfully for Governor of Ohio in 1820, served as a member of the Ohio State Senate (1819-1821), and, from 1825-1828, was U.S. Senator from Ohio. In 1836, the Whigs wanted to defeat Vice President Martin Van Buren, the Democratic candidate nominated to succeed Andrew Jackson whom the Whigs despised, but they were unable to unite behind one candidate. There was excitement in Cincinnati as Harrison was nominated by the Whigs as their presidential candidate in the western states.Supported by the Whigs in the northeast was Daniel Webster and Hugh L. White was the Whig candidate in the south. The plan was to deny Van Buren an electoral vote majority and throw the election into the House of Representatives. Their plan failed. Southerner White only won his home state of Tennessee and Georgia. Webster only won his home state of Massachusetts. Anti-Jacksonian Senator Willie P. Mangum of North Carolina won South Carolina. Gen. Harrison won Kentucky, Indiana, Ohio, Maryland, Delaware, New Jersey, and Vermont, totaling 73 electoral votes, finishing second to Van Buren?s 15 states and 170 electoral votes ?" he needed 148 electoral votes to win. Even if the Whigs had been successful in throwing the election into the House of Representatives, they still would have lost because a majority of the state delegations elected in 1836 were Democrats.In 1840, however, the Whigs united behind an older Tippecanoe, and 67-year-old General William Henry Harrison was elected President of the United States, denying Van Buren reelection."
