        Chandos Leigh ALS 1836 (Handwritten Letter)

      1836 - Letter States, "January 25, 1836, Dear Son, I feel much obliged to you for your letter. It would give me much pleasure to dine at the Club on Saturday next but I fear that I shall not be able to partake of any festivities this week being humbled with a severe cough that renders ??? for me to take great care of it. I fear that I shall be also prevented from attending the fancy ball on Thursday. I am going to see Johnson about it today at Birmingham. I am dear Son, yours very truly, Chandos Leigh. (P.S.) I have just heard it reported my ?? friend & neighbor, Lord Houd is dead, I hope it is not true." Chandos Leigh (1791-1850) was a schoolmate of Byron at Harrow; as a young man he was part of a circle of young liberals, including Byron, Hobhouse, Sheridan, etc., who congregated at Holland House. Leigh's literary career began with the publication of several volumes of verse, much esteemed by his friends. His later efforts were for the most part privately printed in Warwick. Chandos Leigh was also the cousin of Jane Austen. DATE PUBLISHED: 1836 EDITION:

        This Portrait of Mr. C. Davis, his Majesty's Huntsman, on the Hermit is with permission dedicated to the Right Hnble. The Earl of Errol K.T. master of his Majesty's Buck Hounds

      Published by R. B. Davis, London 1836 - Hand-coloured lithograph by J. W. Giles. Printed by J. Graf on India paper and mounted on larger sheet of wove paper. Good condition apart from some overall light soiling, a number of mild water stains in the margins, and slight discolouration of the paper due to age. An striking print after Richard Bennett Davis, animal painter to King George IV and Queen Victoria, from the "Hunters Annual" series. A very fine equestrian portrait from a series that eventually included sixteen prints and was issued in four parts. The hounds are also very carefully observed and qualify as canine portraits in their own right. "Richard Barrett Davis was the son of Richard Davis, huntsman to George III's private harriers. Initially self-taught, he came to the notice of the King who arranged for him to be given proper training.He exhibited paintings at the Royal Academy for over fifty years, his first exhibit being in 1802. In 1831 he was appointed animal painter to George IV and later Queen Victoria." (Charles Lane, British Racing Prints , p.98) Cf. Mellon, British Sporting and Animal Prints , p. 63; cf. Schwerdt I, p.258.

      [Paris: l'auteur, 1836. Stipple engraving printed in colors and finished by hand. A lovely image by Redouté from his very rare final work "Choix de Soixante Roses," a book comprised of varieties not found in his monumental "Les Roses." The Choix de Soixante Roses was "the last of Redouté's original publications, a folio volume containing sixty plates of new roses printed in color after Redouté's method. The book was dedicated to his former pupil Louise-Marie d'Orleans, daughter of Louis Philippe, and now the first queen of the Belgians. In this last publication, Redouté honors his country of birth, if only by means of the dedication" (Stafleu, "Redouté - Peintre de Fleurs" in A Catalogue of Redoutéana Exhibited at the Hunt Botanical Library). The work was issued by Redouté at the end of his glorious career, on the heels of the success of his more well-known Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs . Like that work, the plates in Choix de Soixante Roses , issued in 15 parts, were produced via the method he developed nearly fifty years earlier: colour printed stipple engravings finished with additional hand-colouring. This method allowed Redouté to produce remarkably life-like and delicate depictions. By the time of this final work, however, lithography had largely replaced his laborious method. Placing these images in that context gives special meaning to this, his final encore. Both the book and images from the book are very rare. Stock could locate no more than 12 complete copies of the work extant and no copies have appeared at auction in over a quarter century. Dunthorne 234 ("not seen"); Great Flower Books, p. 129; Nissen 1593; Stock 2364.

        De inflammatione ossium eorumque anatome generali. Exercitatio anatomico-pathologica. + Accedunt Joannis Muelleri Observationes de canaliculis corpusculorum ossium atque de modo, quo terrea materia in ossibus.

      . Berlin, G.Eichler, 1836, 4°, XIV 281 pp., 4 Tafeln, feiner Pappband mit aufkaschierter orignaler blauer Broschur; etwas fleckig.. Selten, erste und einzige Ausgabe. - Johann Friedrich Miescher-His (1811-1887) war Prof. der Physiologie und allgem. Pathologie in Bern und Basel. Die vorliegende Arbeit entstand im Jahre seiner Promotion unter Johannes Müller (1801-58), dem bedeutenden Berliner Physiologen, der ihr seine Abhandlung über die Knochenkörperchen nebst 4 Kupfertafeln beifügte. - - First and only Edition of this rare book.! - In this book, Miescher discusses the embryology and growth of bone as well as the various inflammatory diseases that afflict the skeletal system. The work also contains Müller's "Observationes de canaliculis corpusculorum ossium atque de modo, quo terrea materia in ossibus continetur" illustrated with four very fine lithographic plates. - - "His accurate descriptions of finer bone structure and the histology of fracture-healing in his 1836 treatises were his main contributions to medical science. He was first to distinguish and carefully describe hyaline, elastic, and fibrous cartilage. His conclusions that ossification was always preceded by cartilage, which was then directly transformed into bone by calcification, and his belief that callus formation is always from the broken ends of bone and not from the periosteum are subject to some modification today, but were logical inferences for his time. Bacterial infection was not then understood, and he thought that suppuration was caused by mechanical interference with circulation at the point of breakage. He was first to describe resorption of bone in the healing of fractures." - - "Among his minor contributions were observations and lectures (never published) on liver and bladder cancer, congenital malformations, small publications on a bird trematode (Monostoma bijugum), a fish tapeworm (Tetrarhynchus), and a human skin mite (Demodex). In mouse muscle he discovered the spore sacs of Sarcocystis, still called Miescher's tubes. He published little during his life, but exerted a strong influence in the resurgence of the Basel medical school and on the practice of medicine through his students. He was also a medical historian, and gave three major addresses in this field: one on Felix Plater, one on the history of the University of Basel, and one on Albrecht von Haller, a 32-page gem of biography." LOWELL E. NOLAND, JMH, 1963, pp.394-395 - Miescher discovered nuclein and was also the first to suggest the existence of a genetic code. - - Friedrich-Miescher-His was the son of Johannes Miescher (1771-1846) who was both a farmer and a mill owner manufacturing and trading worldwide in woven linens. - He was born 1811 at Walkringen, Switzerland, then attendance at Biel Gymnasium, where Agassiz studied shortly before, and later two medical years at Bern and four (1832-1836) under Johannes Mueller in Berlin, where in 1836 he published his two major medical works "De ossium genesi, structura et vita" and "De inflammation ossium eorumque anatome generali". Returning 1837 to Switzerland, at the age of only 26 he declined a position at Bern and accepted in ordinary pathology and pathological anatomy at the university a professorship in anatomy and physiology at the small, struggling medical school at Basel. Having no students at first, he spent the winter of 1838-1839 in Paris with Magendie and Nordmann, the latter arousing in him an enduring interest in parasitology. - In 1843 he married Charlotte Antonie His, daughter of Eduard His (originally Ochs), manufacturer of silk ribbons, and Anna Catharina and older sister of Wilhelm His, later embryologist at Leipzig. - In 1844 he accepted a professorship at the Hochschule in Bern, amid political controversies about his appointment, and served until 1850, when he returned as professor of general pathology to Basel and there spent the rest of his life. He was active in Swiss scientific societies, organized a Basel medical society for local physicians, and served as rector of the University for a time. In 1867 he obtained the 'honorary' citizenship of Basle for himself and his descendants. He was a music-lover, played the lute, and sang leading roles in local choral productions. He had a large medical practice and in 1871 gave up his professorship, but continued to give some lectures. He died of heart disease in 1887. - His son was Johannes Friedrich Miescher-Rüsch (1844-1895), the discoverer of DNA. - - Heirs of Hippocrates No. 1772; Callisen XXX, 381 und 475; Hirsch/H. IV, 208.

        Port Tolon bei Nauplia.

      . Aquarell über Bleistift, auf festem Zeichenpapier. 23,2:32,3 cm. - Verso, vermutlich vom Kopisten, bezeichnet "Die kleine Bucht bei Nauplia nach C.

Rottmann erhielt Zeichenunterricht von seinem Vater Friedrich Rottmann (1768-1816) und wohl auch Malunterricht vom Maler und Restaurator F.X. Xeller (1784-1872).

        Le Règne Animal distribué d'après son organisation, pour servir de base à l'histoire naturelle des animaux.

      Paris, Fortin, Masson et Cie, (1836-1849). 20 volumes. 4to (268 x 190mm). With 993 engraved plates, almost all finely handcoloured. Publisher's red half morocco, gilt decorated spines with gilt lettering, topedges gilt. A complete copy of the famous 'Disciples Edition', which eclipses all others for scientific accuracy and beauty of embellishment. Each division is edited by the most eminent professors of this period such as: Milne Edwards, Quatrefages, d'Orbigny, Valenciennes. The work is composed as follows: Les Mammifères, by M. Edwards; Les Oiseaux, by A. d'Orbigny; Les Reptiles, by M. Duvernoy; Les Poissons, by A. Valenciennes; Les Mollusques, by G.P. Deshayes; Les Insectes, by Audouin, Blanchard, Doyère et M. Edwards; Les Arachnides, by A. Duges and M. Edwards; Les Crustacées, by M. Edwards; Les Annelides, by M. Edwards; Les Zoophytes, by M. Edwards. The numbering of the plates is somewhat confusing as some plates have never been published. Nissen gives a collation but his listing is not quite correct. The plates are of a surprising exactness of detail and the colouring is very attractive. The copy is similar to the ones we have sold in the past and is complete. Brunet is the only bibliography to give the correct number of plates. A fine copy, a few plates with some minor moderate foxing.//Nissen ZBI, 1014.

        The Backwoods of Canada: Being Letters from the Wife of an Emigrant Officer, Illustrative of the Domestic Economy of British America.

      Charles Knight, London 1836 - First edition, second issue. (xiii, 351 pp.). 12mo, twenty engraved illustrations, map, frontispiece; in three quarter leather and fancy marbled paper, impressed decoration and title. A nice copy of Traillís first book in bespoke binding, now become quite scarce. Lightly rubbed at the corners and along the spine edges; the text very clean. Condition: Very Good+. Traillís first book, according to Needler in Otonabee Pioneers, was intended ëto enlighten the people of the Old Country on Canada, and to encourage immigration,- not to discourage it, as her sister Mrs. Moodie [who suffers at Needlerís hands] did in Roughing It in the Bushí. Earlier, Needler writes, ë.for seven years the Traills lived the stern life of pioneers making themselves a home in the unbroken forest land of the upper Otonabee. Here, in the midst of such hardships as she could never have dreamt of as she left her home in the Suffolk countryside, Catharine Parr Traill found time to write the long letters on the experiences of the first four years that make up her book.', In History of the Book in Canada, George L. Parker in his article ìCourting Local and International Marketsî says, ëAlmost as disheartening [as the fortunes of John Richardson, author of Wacousta] were the circumstances of the Strickland sisters, who arrived in 1832, both recently married to half-pay officers, and ready to carve out homes in the wilderness near Lakefield, Upper Canada. In England they and their sisters [who remained in England] had turned to writing as a source of financial support after their fatherís bankruptcy and death. They were in desparate financial straits through the 1830s and quite unsuited to pioneer life, but they exploited their hard-ships in best-selling books about genteel upper-middle-class emigrants. Traill sent descriptive letters to her sister Agnes Strickland [author of the successful Lives of the Queens of England], who used her own reputation and influence to have Charles Knight issue these as The Backwoods of Canada.in his Library of Entertaining Knowledgeí (349). According to Parker, Traillís first book, though it received good reviews, was reprinted several times (notably in an edition which included chapters on the Rebellion of 1837) and was translated into French and German, earned its author all of 125 Pounds-- hardly a ticket out of the wilderness (395). Traillís principal later works include The Female Emigrantís Guide (1854), Canadian Wildflowers (1868), and Studies of Plant Life in Canada (1885)-- the latter two owe much to the lithographs contributed by Traillís niece Agnes FitzGibbon (later, Chamberlin).

      l'auteur, [Paris 1836 - Stipple engraving printed in colors and finished by hand. A lovely image by Redouté from his very rare final work "Choix de Soixante Roses," a book comprised of varieties not found in his monumental "Les Roses." The Choix de Soixante Roses was "the last of Redouté's original publications, a folio volume containing sixty plates of new roses printed in color after Redouté's method. The book was dedicated to his former pupil Louise-Marie d'Orleans, daughter of Louis Philippe, and now the first queen of the Belgians. In this last publication, Redouté honors his country of birth, if only by means of the dedication" (Stafleu, "Redouté - Peintre de Fleurs" in A Catalogue of Redoutéana Exhibited at the Hunt Botanical Library). The work was issued by Redouté at the end of his glorious career, on the heels of the success of his more well-known Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs . Like that work, the plates in Choix de Soixante Roses , issued in 15 parts, were produced via the method he developed nearly fifty years earlier: colour printed stipple engravings finished with additional hand-colouring. This method allowed Redouté to produce remarkably life-like and delicate depictions. By the time of this final work, however, lithography had largely replaced his laborious method. Placing these images in that context gives special meaning to this, his final encore. Both the book and images from the book are very rare. Stock could locate no more than 12 complete copies of the work extant and no copies have appeared at auction in over a quarter century.

        Mon-Ka-Ush-Ka, A Sioux Chief

      E. C. Biddle, Philadelphia 1836 - Hand-coloured lithograph. 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. Initially a humble horseholder by trade, Monkaushka later distinguished himself as an honorable and ambitious warrior. In 1837, he attended the intertribal peace council in Washington as a member of the Sioux commission that signed a peace treaty with the United States, ceding their land east of the Mississippi. 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 Black Hawk. 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.

      Breslau & Bonn, E. Weber, 1836. [Separatae aus: Nova Acta Physico-Medica Academiae Caesareae Leopoldino-Carolinae Naturae Curiosorum, tom. 18.1]. - Quart. S. 51-240, mit 8 (davon zwei beikolorierten) Kupfertafeln (nummeriert II-IX, so vollständig) und S. 541-[544] (=Nachtrag). Unbeschnittenes Exemplar, Bögen meist nicht aufgetrennt, die Tafeln etwas braunfleckig, sonst sehr sauber. Erste Ausgabe. Selten. — Kirchner, 3226. Nicht in Garrison-Morton. Hintzsche, S. 85. — Vgl. DSB, Bd. 13, S. 555ff . — Clarke/Jacyna, S. 73: „Valentin‘s 1836 paper is generally recognized as a mile stone in the histology of the nervous system. In particular, Valentin deserves credit for indicating the basic ground elements that underlay the great variety of forms of nervous organization both within the human body and in the animal kingdom." — Clarke/O‘Malley, S. 43: „epoche-making and first good description of the nervous system elements." Der aus Breslau stammende Valentin studierte seit 1828 daselbst unter Nees von Esenbeck und Jan Evangelista Purkinje (1781-1869). Bei Purkinje, der Valentin mit dem mikroskopischen Studium vertraut machte, promovierte er 1832 mit der Arbeit Historiae evolutionis systematis muscularis prolusio. Anschließend ließ er sich als praktischer Arzt in seiner Heimatstadt nieder. Gemeinsam mit Purkinje gelang ihm im darauffolgenden Jahr die Entdeckung der Flimmerbewegung des Ependyms, jener Zellschicht, die die Hirnflüssigkeit vom eigentlichen Hirnnervengewebe trennt. Purkinje und Valentin konnten zeigen, daß die Flimmerbewegung nicht wie bis dahin bekannt eine singuläre Erscheinung ist, sondern den meisten vegetativen Systemen eigen ist. Johannes Müller, die überragende Gestalt der deutschsprachigen Physiologie der Zeit, würdigte diese Entdeckung als eine der bedeutendsten Leistungen der noch jungen Disziplin (vgl. Archiv für Anatomie und Physiologie 1835/1, S. 128ff.). Noch im selben Jahr, in dem sich Müller derart lobend äußerte, konnte Valentin mit seiner über eintausend Seiten zählenden Histogenia comparata auch den Grand Prix des Sciences Physiques der Pariser Akademie erlangen, was ihm die Anerkennung nicht nur Alexander von Humboldts verschaffte. Diese Aufsehen erregenden Arbeiten, hierzu zählte auch die vorliegende epochale Abhandlung, brachten Valentin den Ruf gleich dreier europäischer Universitäten ein. Allerdings strebte er wohl auch aus persönlichen Gründen von Breslau fort. Im gemeinsam mit Purkinje genutzten Labor — eines der ersten experimentalphysiologischen Labore moderner Art — bahnten sich Streitigkeiten über den Zugang zu den für die Forschung unentbehrlichen Mikroskopen an. Die nicht gänzlich geklärten Umstände ihrer Auseinandersetzung — von Hintzsche (1953, insb. S. 23f.) in Briefen Valentins gefundene Andeutungen lassen auf einen endgültigen Riß des Freundschaftsbandes schließen — mögen Valentin bereits ausreichend Grund geboten haben, einem der aus Lüttich, Dorpat und Bern abgegangene Rufe zu folgen. Da Valentin jüdischen Glaubens war und mit den Rufen aus Dorpat und Lüttich Aufforderungen zum Konfessionswechsel einhergingen, entschied er sich für die Schweiz, wo er bis an sein Lebensende fortwirkte. In Bern erschien 1839 teils noch als Frucht der Breslauer Forschungen De functionibus nervorum cerebralium et nervi sympathici libri quattuor, deren erster Teil die hier vorliegende Arbeit in Auszügen referrierte. Beide Arbeiten sind klassische Schriften der Neurophysiologie, allerdings kommt der Abhandlung Über den Verlauf und die letzten Enden der Nerven wissenschaftsgeschichtlich weit größere Bedeutung zu. Valentin suchte hierin eine allgemeine Theorie der Struktur des Nervensystems aufzustellen, mit dem Ziel „to discover the Urtypus of ganglionic organization that was applicable to all parts of the nervous system in humans and that also formed a link between nervous organization in vertebrate and invertebrate animals." „[Valentin] set out to find a typical histological structure that would unify the two departments of the vertebrate nervous system: the cerebrospinal and the vegetative."

        THOMAS TELFORD'S ENGINEERING WORKS IN DOVER HARBOUR

      1836 - Accomplished drawing in pencil and water-colour wash on paper, 11 x 15 inches approx., with 'Dover 1836' and the initials 'H.G' in the lower left corner. In fine clean condition free from foxing or other blemish, mounted in conservation materials, ready for framing. An accomplished and unusual view, and very interesting for that. Seen from the western end of the Dover shoreline where elements of the Western Docks are completed or under construction. In the foreground is the dry dock, the inland end littered with huge blocks of stone, carts and equipment, and a number of well drawn figures of workmen and onlookers. The blocks are for the construction of Thomas Telford's reservoir, tunnels and sluice, on one of which is inscribed the word 'DOVER'. In the middle ground is the long mole that separates the Wet Dock from the Tidal Harbour and beyond that the North Pier. An interesting feature is the tunnel mouth, visible opposite the lock end of the Dry Dock, where the water from both Wet and Dry Docks could be discharged through the system of tunnels and culverts that Telford was at this date enlarging. These were built into the South Pier by James Moon, responsible for the harbour works in the early part of the century, in an effort to scour the shingle build-up away from the harbour mouth, which for various reasons had proved ineffective. Enlargement was recommended by Thomas Telford in 1834 and his plans were duly completed in 1837, to very great effect, by James Walker, who succeeded Telford on his death in 1834. The tall smokestack and masts and rigging of a paddle steamer are visible in the Wet Dock and various other craft are seen in the Tidal Harbour. In the distance are the buildings of the foreshore and over all, the cliffs and castle. A detailed, well-drawn, and delightful work, full of interest. We have been unable to establish the identity of 'H.G.' but it is clearly the work of a skilful painter, or perhaps engineer. PRINTS/MAPS DOVER PRINTS/MAPS
