        DRAGOON CAMPAIGNS TO THE ROCKY MOUNTAINS; Being a History of the Enlistment, Organization, and First Campaign of the Regiment of United States Dragoons; Together with Incidents of a Soldier's Life, and Sketches of Scenery and Indian Character. By a Dragoon.

      Wiley & Long, New York 1836 - 12mo. 288pp. Orig. dark green cloth with pictorial gilt spine. Small chips at extremities of spine & tips worn. Lacking the blank front free endpaper. Old faded oval ownership stamp on front pastedown and top of title page. Occasional minor foxing. A very scarce and highly readable account of the first prairie campaign of the Regiment of Dragoons, from the author's enlistment in Buffalo, New York to its organization and training at Jefferson Barracks and its campaign through Arkansas Territory in 1833 and the Pawnee Villages in 1834. Also included are two letters from George Catlin who accompanied the troops; as well as one of the earliest mentions in print of the game called poker (where a Major who had four kings was beaten by a Captain who held four aces). The author concludes with a modern sounding admonition to the reader to not allow your sons to grow up to be soldiers. Howes #471. Wagner-Camp #59 (who suggests that Hildreth was just the organizer of the writing and the real author of the narrative may have been an Englishman named William L. Gordon Miller).

        AMS - Eigenhändiges autobiographisches Manuskript mit Unterschrift.

      - (Würzburg) 3 1/4 Seiten gr.-folio. Schwach fleckig, kleine Randeinrisse. Eduard von Rindfleisch (1836-1908), Pathologe. - Autobiographischer Artikel für das Brockhaus'sche Konversationslexikon, vermutlich für die 1875-1879 erscheinende 12. Auflage. - - ". schon in meinem dritten Studiensemester entschied ich mich für die pathologische Anatomie als meine Lieblingswissenschaft, ging im Herbst 1856 gleichzeitig mit Virchow nach Berlin und saß bis Ostern 1861 zu den Füßen dieses Meisters. Ich war niemals Assistent bei Virchow. Aeltere Semester gingen mir voran. Ich widmete mich daher desto ausschließlicher meinen literarischen Arbeiten und histologischen Studien. Ostern 1861 folgte ich einer Aufforderung des Herrn Prof. Heidenhain zur Uebernahme der Assistenz für Histologie in dem physiologischen Institute zu Breslau mit der Bedingung, daß mir zugleich gestattet werde, mich dortselbst für pathologische Anatomie zu habilitiren ." - Im Folgenden über seine Professur in Zürich an der Seite von Billroth, Clausius u.a. ("Es war eine köstliche Zeit!") und seine Berufungen nach Bonn und Würzburg. - - ".Was meine wissenschaftliche Thätigkeit betrifft, so hat mir Mutter Natur eine besondere Gabe verliehen, aus der Beobachtung der Form und Zusammenfügung der Dinge ihre Bestimmung und Arbeit zu errathen und zu erkennen. Schon als Knabe saß ich tagelang während der Schulferien in einer Rumpelkammer, wo . alte Uhren, Flinten, wunderliche medicinische und physicalische Apparate, ein Leuwenhoekisches Mikroskop etc. auseinanderzunehmen und wieder zusammenzusetzen waren. Später hat mich dieser Trieb und diese Fähigkeit auch den complicirten Maschinerien der Natur gegenüber nicht im Stich gelassen und jedesmal wenn es mir gelungen war, eine Formengruppe der pathologischen Anatomie in Zusammenhang zu bringen und zu verstehen, mußte ich an die alte Rumpelkammer denken ." - - In einem Umschlag der Sammlung Brockhaus.

        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.

        Über den Verlauf und die letzten Enden der Nerven. Mit 8 Kupfertafeln. UND: Nachtrag.

      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

        NARRATIVE OF THE ARCTIC LAND EXPEDITION TO THE MOUTH OF THE GREAT FISH RIVER, and Along the Shores of the Arctic Ocean, in the Years 1833, 1834, and 1835.

      London: John Murray 1836 - Thick 8vo. 1st edition. x + 1pp (List of Plates) + 663pp. 16 engraved plates, folding map. With: the AUTHOR'S SIGNATURE tipped-in ahead of the frontispiece ("Very truly yours, Geo. Back"). Blind-stamped brown cloth, re-spined with the original gilt spine title block mounted. Very good. Back explored the vast region from Great Slave Lake along the Great Fish River to the shores of Chancery Inlet. The expedition started out as a privately-financed and government-assisted rescue mission for John Ross's missing Northwest Passage expedition, but grew into an exploring expedition in its own right. Back gained considerable experience as an Arctic explorer through his participation in Franklin's two overland expeditions, and became one of the first competent artists to penetrate into the Canadian Arctic. His illustrations adorn and enhance the narratives of Franklin as well as his own, and are considered an important visual record of early northern history.

      Firenze, 1836. First Italian. 19th cent. leather backed bds. Fine. 8vo., 21 lithographs of operations (with a notable example of plastic surgery). One of the great encyclopaedias of military medicine by its leading 19th cent. practitioner. Larrey presented his decades of experience and practical knowledge in this book: he was one of the first to amputate at the hip-joint; the first to describe the therapeutic effect of maggots on wounds; gave the first description of 'trench foot'; invented the 'ambulance volante'; used advanced first-aid posts on the battlefield, etc. It is a summation of his ideas on surgery and a developed exposition of his newtechniques. There are sections dealing with all kinds of wounds, amputations, and operations (including the relatively new problems of reconstructive surgery). The plates are explicit and informative.

        Payta Kootha A Shawanee Warrior

      Philadephia: E. C. Biddle, 1836. A fine image from McKenney and Hall&#39;s &#39;Indian Tribes of North America&#39;: `One of the most important [works] ever published on the American Indians&#39; (Field),` a landmark in American culture&#39; (Horan) and an invaluable contemporary record of a vanished way of life. Payta Kootha, Flying Clouds, was a Shawnee chief. He signed several treaties including the Treaty of Greenville in 1795. His last treaty was signed in 1825 by which the Shawnee surrendered all claim to land east of the Mississippi. An early impression printed by Lehman & Duval and published by Edward Biddle. 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&#39;s Indian Gallery. Most of King&#39;s original paintings were subsequently destroyed in a fire at the Smithsonian, and their appearance in McKenney and Hall&#39;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&#39;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 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 making a record of a rapidly disappearing culture.

        Book of Gems The Poets and Artists of Great Britain. Edited by S. C. Hall. [ 2 volumes]. The Modern Poets and Artists of Great Britain. [1 volume].

      London:: Saunders and Otley 1837 1838 1836 - FIRST EDITIONS. 3 volumes. 8vo, 210 x 131 mms., pp. xvi, 304 [305 - 308 facsimiles of poets' autographs]; xvi, 304 [305 - 308 facsimiles of poets' autographs]; xvi, 304 [305 - 308 facsimiles of poets' autographs], engraved title-pages, engraved vignettes and head-pieces throughout all three volumes, contemporary diced roan, spines ornately gilt in compartments, all edges gilt; lacks labels, but a very good set. Hall (1800 - 1889) was probably one of the busiest and most industrious authors, compilers, and editors of the 19th century. Peter Mandler in ODNB concludes his entry on Hall, with this observation: "And yet his life as a whole stands as a model of Victorian energy and uprightness, and his work as editor and animateur did much to popularize art and literature and thus to support the mass market for high culture so characteristic of the middle third of the nineteenth century." He was careful to use contemporary or recent artists for the illustrations - Constable, Gainsborough, Landseer, Reynolds. among others. To this one must add that he was also regarded as something of a prig with a high-mindedness that was more judgmental than practical; he was almost certainly the model for Mr. Pecksniff in Dickens' Martin Chuzzlewit.

        An Account of the War in Portugal between Don Pedro and Don Miguel

      London, T. & W. Boone,, 1836. 2 volumes, octavo, original brown diapered cloth-backed drab boards, paper labels to the spines. Three plans. Slightly rubbed and soiled, hines a little cracked, some browning particularly to the endpapers and plates, but overall a very good copy. First edition. Having defended British interests in Portugal and the Azores during 1830, in 1832 Napier was invited to command Donna Maria&#39;s fleet in her struggle against her "wicked uncle", Dom Miguel. "After securing an advance on his pay, and a large life insurance policy, Napier relieved Admiral Sir George Sartorious and, to avoid making too explicit a breach of the Foreign Enlistment Act, adopted the nom de guerre of Dom Carlos de Ponza." He arrived in Oporto in June 1833, and despite appalling conditions, near mutiny amongst the mixed British and Portuguese crews, and mass desertions, succeeded in defeating the Miguelite navy off Cape St. Vincent in July for which he was given the title of Viscount St. Vincent by the grateful Dom Pedro. In the year that followed Napier built on this success, becoming by his own report "quite a &#39;general&#39;" in command of the motley force including English marines and sailors, Portuguese Marines, and the Scots regiment that drove the Miguelites out of their northern strongholds. When Donna Maria was declared de jure Queen of Portugal in 1834 Napier realised that without the threat of Dom Miguel it would be impossible to maintain any serious organization in the Portuguese Navy, he therefore resigned his command and severed all connection with the Portuguese Government. Uncommon, a nice set in the publisher&#39;s cloth and boards.

      [Mexico City. April 14, 1836].. [2]pp. plus integral blank leaf. Dbd. Old folds and stab holes, minor foxing. Contemporary ink notations. Very good. A very nice example of the Decree of the Congreso General, which was approved by José Justo Corro, President ad interim, on April 14, 1836, and promulgated the same day by José María Tornel, substituting perpetual banishment for the death penalty in the case of certain Texan prisoners of war, but not members of the government and leaders of the revolution, and fixing in some cases lesser penalties. Dated and signed at end, in print: "México 14 de Abril de 1836. Tornel." This copy has contemporary ink notations at the head of the first page, and after the end of the text, signed by Jose Antonio Arraya, dated in 1836. It is unclear exactly who Arraya was, but there is a signed circular from Arraya in the Houston Endowment Texana Collection at the San Jacinto Museum of History in which Arraya acknowledges the succession of José Justo Corro to presidency of Mexico and expresses his desire to end the war in Texas. No other mention of Arraya can be found. "This decree was passed in the flush of the victory at the Alamo, applied to those rebellious Texans who surrendered within fifteen days or such greater or lesser time as Santa Anna might fix, and gave Santa Anna the right to fix the times and places of embarkation of those banished. Those not already subject to the death penalty might be punished by ten years imprisonment in interior regions of the Mexican republic, distant at least 70 leagues from the coast and the land frontiers" -Streeter.
