        Annalen der Irren-Heilanstalt zu Siegburg. Herausgegeben von D. M. Jacobi. Erster Band. (all publ.)

      Köln, Druck und Verlag von M. DuMont-Schauberg, 1836, 8, XX, (4), 303, (1) pp., Halbledereinband d.Zt. minimal fleckig, feines Expl. Selten - Erstdruck! Carl Wigand Maximilian Jacobi (1775-1858) "gilt als Begründer der modernen Irrenheilkunde".Anhand von 23 ausführlichen Fallgeschichten versucht Jacobi eine Gliederung der möglichen Ursachen der Syndrome zu entwickeln, um zur Entwicklung einer Krankheitslehre beizutragen. Insbesondere die Zusammenhänge mit körperlichen Leiden waren für ihn bedeutsam. Er führt in diesen Annalen seinen Ansatz aus der "Sammlung für die Heilkunde der Gemüthskrankheiten" (1822 - 1830) fort, durch intensive und genaue Beobachtungen Ordnung in das Durcheinander der Erscheinungsbilder zu bringen. Am Schluß des Bandes gibt er "Summarische Nachweisungen über die während der Jahre 1825 bis 1836 Statt gefundenen Krankenaufnahmen, Genesungen, Todesfälle u.s.w.""Während die erste Lebenshälfte Jacobi's wenig Spuren einer bedeutenden Thätigkeit hinterließ - zu erwähnen ist er nur als Uebersetzer des Herodot und Thucydides, als Verfasser einiger kleiner medicinischer Aufsätze und gemeinsam mit Sim. Häberl als Herausgeber der "Jahrbücher des Sanitätswesens im Königreich Bayern", 1810 - hat er in seiner psychiatrischen Wirksamkeit geradezu Großartiges geschaffen. Als er sich der Psychiatrie zuwandte, lag das Irrenwesen Deutschlands im Argen, seine wissenschaftlichen Vertreter hatten sich in zwei Lager gespalten und bekämpften sich in ermüdendem Theorienstreite. Da trat J. auf und ging mit unbefangenem Blick und in thatkräftiger Weise an die praktische und wissenschaftliche Förderung der Irrenheilkunde. Gegenüberder damals sich mehr und mehr ausbreitenden psychischen Schule der Psychiatrie stellte er dem Standpunkte des Psychologen und Philosophen den des Naturforschers entgegen, dessen Aufgabe die Erforschung des menschlichen Organismus und der Gesetze aller diesem eigenthümlichen Lebenserscheinungen sei, also auch der psychischen Erscheinungen, allein nur insoferne sie Naturerscheinungen seien. Die Nachweisung ihres Hervorgehens, ihres Zusammenhanges und ihrer Veränderungen aus den Gesetzen des Organismus sei vor Allem zu erforschen. Alle Seelenstörungen beruhten auf körperlichen Abnormitäten, oder seien vielmehr nur Symptome körperlicher Erkrankung. J. ging jedoch noch weiter, indem er, wie dies schon der Titel seiner "Beobachtungen über die Pathologie und Therapie der mit Irresein verbundenen Krankheiten", 1830 andeutet, die Geistesstörungen nicht als selbständige Formen sondern nur als Symptome irgend einer somatischen Krankheit auffaßte und annahm, daß die mit Seelenstörung verbundenen Krankheiten bald diese bald jene Sphäre, bald dieses bald jenes einzelne Gebilde, bald diesen bald jenen Complexus von Gebilden des Gesammtorganismus ergriffen, während der Gehirnerkrankung selbst nur eine ganz untergeordnete, secundäre Rolle zukomme. In echt naturwissenschaftlicher Methode hat J. diese theoretisch aufgestellten Propositionen in der Praxis begründet. Obwol er nicht ganz auf der Höhe der ärztlichen Wissenschaft stand und nicht mit ihren Fortschritten gleichen Schritt zu halten vermochte, so daß er in späteren Jahren in den diagnostischen Behelfen und der pathologischen Anatomie manche Mängel zeigte, schuf er doch in seinen "Annalen der Irrenheilanstalt zu Siegburg", 1837 und in den "Hauptformen der Seelenstörungen in ihren Beziehungen zur Heilkunde", 1844, Werke von immer bleibendem Werthe. Flemming (Pathologie und Therapie der Psychosen, S. 17) nennt ihn in Anbetracht der Verdienste um die pathogenetische Untersuchung der Seelenstörungen den Baco der Irrenheilkunde. Das letztere Werk war ans drei Bände berechnet, leider ist nur der erste über Tobsucht erschienen. In diesem ist die ganze Symptomatologie der mit Tobsucht verbundenen Krankheitszustände, die Blutbewegung, die Respiration, die Verdauung, Ernährung etc. und schließlich die psychischen Erscheinungen mit solcher Gründlichkeit und Genauigkeit durchforscht, daß überall neue, zum Theil überraschende Resultate sich ergeben. In der Behandlung der Geistesstörungen verfolgte J. zwei Wege, die bald einzeln bald zugleich in Anwendung gezogen werden müssen: einerseits die Anwendung der zu Gebote stehenden Medicamente und diätetischen Mittel, andererseits directe Einwirkung auf die Gemüthskräfte, um durch deren Rückwirkung auf den Organismus, insofern ihre Aeußerung eine correspondirende organische Thätigkeit bedingt, die Krankheit zu heben. Diese psychische Einwirkung sei eine rein humane, rein individualisirende, unter Umständen sei aber auch Strenge nicht auszuschließen." Bandorf, ADB XIII(1881), pp. 593-596The asylum of Siegburg, the first who founded in Prussia and created by Jacobi under English influence, became the model for the German psychiatrists of the time. Jacobi, called the Esquirol of Germany, was a somatologist and proclaimed his respect for the brain by asserting that one needed no psychology to understand and treat mental diseases.Kirchhoff I, 83-94 Leibbrand-Walley, Der Wahnsinn, 496-97 Hirsch-H. III, 393 Waller 5097 Ackerknecht, Hist. Psychiatry, 62 Zilboorg, 433 & 434.

Its authentic interior, containing the original objects, has remained the same since then. So Teylers can justly lay claim to the title of being the first and oldest museum in the Netherlands. The library is interesting for itself. There is no other library in the Netherlands with such a beautiful and complete collection of literature from the 18th and 19th centuries about botany, zoology, and the earth sciences. In total, the book and journal collection consists of more than 125,000 volumes. Major acquisitions continued to be made until approximately 1940. Since then, the library has no longer been a place for finding out about the latest scientific developments, but primarily as a museum room of historic interest.

        Über die Verschiedenheit des menschlichen Sprachbaues und ihren Einfluß auf die geistige Entwickelung des Menschengeschlechts.

      Berlin: Druckerei des königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften, 1836 - Quarto (254 x 213 mm). Modern black pebbled quarter cloth, marbled boards, green paper label to spine hand lettered. A few neat pencil annotations to contents. Light wear to extremities, corners very gently bumped, contents browned with some foxing, creasing, and dampstain, small paper repair to title page verso, trimmed in the binding process, overall a very good copy. First edition of the diplomat, stateman, and linguist's major philological testament, "the first great book in general linguistics" (Bloomfield, p. 133), published posthumously. "Humboldt attempts the classification of peoples according to language. More important than the classification itself was the corollary to it, which seemed to Humboldt to imply that the development of individual languages is affected by physiology, ethnography, history, geography, political and religious relationships, and that stages in cultural development of peoples leave strongly marked traces in their languages" (PMM). Humboldt (1767–1835) travelled extensively as he studied the Basque language and, later, the ancient courty Kawi language of Java. Much of his work was never completed or published but remained in draft form. He was also renowned for his work as an education reformer, his most notable achievements being the founding of Berlin's Humboldt University in 1811 and as the originator of the highly influential holistic academic system now known as the Humboldtian model.

They set out from Cairo in February 1828, where Laborde had established himself after his long journey in Asia Minor and Syria (1826-7), and made their way to Petra via Suez and Mt. Sinai. Both Burckhardt and Mangles had explored Petra before Laborde but Laborde was the first to be able to make plans, views and maps of the area. An important work' (Blackmer 929).

        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.

Baillière, 1836, Groß-Folio, 2 Bl., 50 pp., 10 lith.Taf., OHLnBd., Ecken etwas bestoßen, vereinzelt fleckig, insgesamt feines und großes Exemplar dieses seltenen Buches. * Posthumous rare FIRST EDITION of Guillaume Dupuytren's (1777-1835) elaborate and beautifully illustrated work describing his new methods for the removal of bladder stone with 10 lithographed plates after drawings by N.H.Jacob drawn on stone by P.Langlumé, of which 8 depict stages of the operation and 2 of the special instruments used, all life-size. In French surgery the most famous operator and ablest diagnostician of his time was the Baron Dupuytren ... who attracted to his clinic at the Hotel-Dieu pupils from all countries of the world. An eloquent teacher and man of wide culture, he held a high position in the social life of his time.. -Castiglioni, 713. A work of obvious importance in the history of "cutting for the stone", yet apparently little-known. Not in Osler, Waller, Wellcome, J.A.Benjamin. Not in Ellis, A history of bladder stone Heirs of Hippocates No.1223. Dupuytrens letztes Werk, posthum erschienen, ist mit seinen herrlichen Tafeln wohl eines der schönsten in der operativen Urologie überhaupt. Seltene erste Ausgabe dieser bedeutenden Arbeit, in der seine Methode des bilateralen Steinschnitts erstmalig veröffentlicht wird. Die von Le Dran für grosse Steine im 18.Jhdt. angegebene Spaltung der Prostata nach zwei Seiten, die Sectio bilateralis, fand hier ihre genaue Begründung und Ausbildung sowie ihre eigentliche Einführung in die Praxis. "Die von ihm begonnene Arbeit konnte Dupuytren nicht mehr vollenden und überließ deren Beendigung testamentarisch seinen Freunden und Schülern Sanson und Bégin" (Hirsch II, 348). Guillaume Dupuytren, der genialste Chirurg seiner Epoche, meisterhafter Operateur, scharfsinniger Diagnostiker, einer der ersten, der in Frankreich die Ligaturen großer Arterien ausführte und den traumatischen Aneurysmen erhöhte Aufmerksamkeit zuwandte, der 1822 die subcutane Durschschneidung des Sternocleidomastoideus vornahm, der das Enterotom zur Behandlung des künstlichen Afters und andere wesentliche Neuerungen empfahl".

        Patent of nobility donated by Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand I of Austria (1793-1875) to Joseph Kretzer von Immertreu for his 37 years galant services to the Empire as soldier and officer.

      Austrian Empire, Vienna, d.d. 17 July 1836. Folio. Full red velvet, with yellow and black ribbons. Good condition, except for a stain on the silk end paper. 38x30 cm. 10 pages. Manuscript, calligraphic text on vellum, with printed decorative margins. With a very large hand painted coloured coat-of-arms. In the end the original signature of Ferdinand I and of Anton Friedrich Grafen Mittrowsky von Mittrowitz and Nemischl. Imperial wax seal with one large crack, in a disc shaped copper case, attached to the document by the gold cord of the binding. All encased in a metal box. This patent of nobility was donated by Ferdinand I of Austria in the early days of his reign (1835-1848). Ferdinand I is widely believed to have been a weak ruler and it is sometimes supposed that he lacked intellectual capacities. He also suffered from ill health. During the revolution of 1848, Ferdinand fled the country and abdicated in favour of his nephew Franz Joseph I. The patent explains at length the reasons why Kretzer recieved his nobility. He was born in Jägerndorf and joined the army in 1796. He became Fahnrich and subsequently Unterlieutenant in 1809, Oberlieutenantin 1813, Kapitänlieutenant in 1829 und Hauptman in 1831. He left the army in 1833 as a pensioner. He took part in the campaigns in 1799, 1805, 1809, 1813 and 1814 (Napolenonic Wars). Between 1803-1805 he was first teacher at the Regiments-Knaben-Erziehungshause (military school) and in 1809, 1813 and 1814 he was Regiments Adjudant. He recieves the noble title and the right to call himself Kretzer von Immertreu which translates as always loyal. His son also served in the military and became General-Major.H176.

        The Poetical Works: With a Fore-Edge Painting of a British Flagged Frigate.

      London: William Pickering, 1836. Octavo, bound in straight-grain full green morocco, gilt titles and tooling to the spine, all edges gilt. With a fore-edge painting of a British-flagged three-masted frigate, sails full, with land on the horizon. The earliest fore-edge paintings date possibly as far back as the 10th century; these earliest paintings were symbolic designs. Early English fore-edge paintings, believed to date to the 14th century, presented heraldic designs in gold and other colors. The first known example of a disappearing fore-edge painting (where the painting is not visible when the book is closed) dates from 1649. The earliest signed and dated fore-edge painting dates to 1653: a family coat of arms painted on a 1651 Bible. Around 1750, the subject matter of fore-edge paintings changed from simply decorative or heraldic designs to landscapes, portraits and religious scenes, usually painted in full color. Modern fore-edge painted scenes have a lot more variation as they can depict numerous subjects not found on earlier specimens. These include scenes that are erotic, or they might involve scenes from novels (like Jules Verne, Sherlock Holmes or Dickens, etc.). In many cases, the chosen scene will depict a subject related to the book, but in other cases it did not. In one instance, the same New Brunswick landscape was applied to both a Bible and to a collection of poetry and plays. The choice of scenes is made by either the artist, bookseller or owner, thus the variety is wide. The technique was popularized in the 18th century by John Brindley (1732-1756), publisher and bookbinder to the prince of Wales and Edwards of Halifax, a distinguished family of bookbinders and booksellers. The majority of extant examples of fore-edge painting date to the late 19th and early 20th century on reproductions of books originally published in the early 19th century.

        Chinese Missionary Pamphlet, "The Perfect Man's Model."

      Singapore, 1836. Stab sewn 8vo. 60 pp. This pamphlet is a religious tract written by Protestant missionary Karl Gutzlaff, a fascinating character, typical of the sort of opportunist who clustered around the opium business in the old China trade. In the 1830s he traveled as a translator on a British opium trading vessel, known as a “country ship” illegally selling opium for Jardine, Matheson & Co. down the coast of China. Gutzlaff justified his complicity with the pretty rationalization that the journey would be a good opportunity to preach the gospel and distribute Chinese language religious tracts. So, you got opium and Jesus on the same spoon. His moral flaws aside, Gutzlaff was a smart and lucid observer, whose writings offer excellent detail about China and the China Trade in the days leading up to the first Opium War. In his later days he opened a school for Chinese “native missionaries,” several of whom turned out to be opium addicts using their missionary cover and funding for illicit purposes. The fraud exposed, Gutzlaff died a ruined man. Bad karma, I suppose. This tract, written and printed entirely in Chionese as, "The Perfect Man's Model," was published in Singapore in 1836, is typical of those he distributed on his opium voyage. Color title page lightly chipped, else very good condition in original wrappers.

        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. NormanSchwann'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.190-191This volume also contains: Müller, Johannes (1801-1858) & Schwann, Theodor (1810-1882): "Versuche über die künstliche Verdauung des geronnenen Eiweisses."

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.

        WORKS. (THE POETICAL WORKS. [and] THE LETTERS)

      London: William Pickering, 1836; 1835-36. n. This is an attractively bound set of the four-volume Pickering edition of Gray's poems and letters, the latter including many items appearing in print for the first time. Best known for "Elegy written in a Country Churchyard," Thomas Gray (1716-71) was primarily a scholar, a professor of Modern History and Languages at Cambridge, and never became a professional or even a dedicated poet. Still, he was offered the laureateship in 1757, upon the death of Colley Cibber (he refused the honor). Gray had begun to write poetry as early as 1742, but it was not until 15 years later, after the publication of his "Poems," that he had become generally recognized as the foremost poet of the day. In his highly polished verse, one can easily trace the decay of Neoclassical and the development of Romantic strains in English poetry. Among other major works, Day calls his "Progress of Poesy" "probably the best true Pindaric ode in English," and another similar ode, "The Bard," "probably the best 18th century attempt at poetic sublimity." Although some of Gray's letters appeared in 1778 in an edition of his work put out by William Mason, the vast majority of the more than 350 epistolary items contained in these volumes are published for the first time. Volume I here is part of the well-known "Aldine Poet" series issued by Pickering, a publishing project covering more than 20 years and involving the production of 53 volumes (not counting reprints). Each work was carefully edited by one of a group of reputable scholars that included Sir Nicholas Harris Nicolas, Alexander Dyce, and John Mitford, the last of whom edited these volumes, which include his long biography of our poet and equally long "Essay on the Poetry of Gray." There was a fifth volume containing Gray's correspondence with the Rev. Norton Nicholls published by Pickering seven years after our set, in 1843, not present here.. 175 x 108 mm. (6 7/8 x 4 1/4"). Four volumes (the poems in the first volume, the letters in volumes II-IV). Edited by John Mitford. Attractive late 19th century chestnut brown half morocco over marbled boards, upper covers with a gilt falcon stamped on the leather, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with Arts and Crafts-style quatrefoil centerpiece surrounded by gilt dots, spade-shaped leaves at corners, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. With frontispiece portrait in volume I. Keynes, p. 38 (for first volume). A hint of rubbing to joints and extremities, very faint freckled foxing affecting about one leaf in four, but still quite a pleasing set, the bindings bright and with no significant wear, and the text very smooth and clean, showing few signs of use. This is an attractively bound set of the four-volume Pickering edition of Gray's poems and letters, the latter including many items appearing in print for the first time.

        A Visit to the United States and Canada in 1833; With the View of Settling in America. Including a Voyage to and from New-York

      Richard Weston and Sons (& Richard Griffin and Company), Edinburgh (& Glasgow) 1836 - First edition, 1836. Half calf 12mo, 312pp. Dark brown smooth calf with marbled boards, marbled edges. In good condition. Front board is detached, otherwise very good. Rubbing to the joints and boards, including occasional small losses to the leather or marbled papers. Gilt is faded on the ruling for six spine compartments, each with an embossed pendant and title (though the original title plate appears to be lacking). A slight bloating to the volume, as from being stored in a basement, but nothing extreme. A page of remarks, reprinted below, appear opposite the title page, noting the previous owner's association with the author. "During the years 1826-27-28, I lodged in Lothian Stree, Edin: & saw a good deal of Mr. Weston, a very intelligent & highly respected bookseller in that street. Just before I left Edin. after taking my (segue?) of M. D. in 1828m he told me that he was about to emigrate. My surprise, therefore, was great when I found him in the old shop during my visit to Edin, with my wife, in 1837. This book will explain his apparent inconsistency. -Henry Yates Whytehead, M. D." Whytehead went on to become a notable doctor. His signature appears on the front endpaper, but aside from his introduction, the contents remain bright, clean and unmarked. A rare volume which has not appeared at auction since 1982. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Winslow Homer (1836-1910), perhaps the most famous of America's 19th century painters, studied in Paris as a young man, but, unlike his contemporary Whistler, left before receiving the full impact of Impressionism. He began as a graphic artist in the 1850s for Harper's Weekly and from 1862 to 1865 did numerous "Campaign Sketches" of soldier life. Although he achieved his greatest fame in oils, and, particularly, watercolor--he had the most profound influence of any artist on watercolor painting in America--he continued in black and white through the 1880s. In painting, his marine subjects are particularly noteworthy: his oil "The Gulf Stream" quickly became an American icon. In later years Homer spent his summers on the Maine coast, and his winters in Florida, from whence this attractive autograph was dispatched to a collector in the artist's 68th year.

Streeter 3705. - Back, who had been on both Franklin expeditions, was sent out to locate Ross, who had been unreported through three winters. News of Ross's safe return reached Back in April 1833 and he then pursued the expedition's secondary objectives. These were, firstly, to navigate the length of a river supposedly arising in the neighbourhood of the Great Slave Lake and running north to the Arctic Sea, and then, secondly, to map as much as possible of the seacoast. He was successful in both objectives, travelling 7,500 miles in total and traversing the full 440-mile length of the river (known as Thlueetessy' by the Indians). The Great Fish River, as Back named it, has since become known as The Back River. .

        Mädchen stehend am Klippenrand zu einer feenhaften Himmelserscheinung andachtsvoll betend. Aquarell, auf Malpapier, in Gold signiert und datiert 1836

      1836 - Thieme/Becker XX, 183. - Die Figur des Mädchens in sommerlicher bäuerlicher Tracht barfuß auf einem Wiesenstück einer felsigen Klippe vor dem weiten Meer in aufrechter Haltung, ihre Hände hat das Mädchen andächtig gefaltet auf blickt auf eine in dunklen Wolken verhüllte Feen Gestalt. Das ganze Bild von einem romantisierenden und traumhaften Abendhimmel umgeben, darunter die Weite des Meeres und das letzten Sonnenlicht. Vermutlich versinnbildlicht diese fromme Darstellung des Mädchens eine Szene aus einer Ballade von Uhland oder Zedlitz. - Das Aquarell ist mit schwarzer und feiner goldener Linie eingefasst. - Bis 1848 war Matthäus Kern in Wien tätig, wo er als Porträtmaler, insbesondere von aquarellierten Miniaturen und Maler von detaillierten Innenansichten von Schlössern und Kirchen gefragt war. Insbesondere Mitglieder des Adels bis hin zur kaiserlichen Familie des Hauses Habsburg gehörten zu seinen Auftraggebern. Auch in der Genremalerei war er erfolgreich, hier bevorzugte er Szenen aus der Literatur, etwa aus Werken Lenaus, Uhlands oder Zedlitz. - Aus der Sammlung des Erzherzogs Franz Ferdinand von Österreich (1863-1914). - In sehr schöner, sauberer Erhaltung

        Redman Family Correspondence, 1862 - 1888.

      About 75 letters, some with mailing envelopes; over 200 pages of manuscript. Benjamin R. Redman, 1836 - 1905, was a well-known master mariner of Islesboro, Maine. He is mentioned in Wasson's "Sailing Days on the Penobscot" and is noted for having made one of the fastest Atlantic crossings, under sail, on record. Also, his ship "William C. Clark" was captured and burned by the Confederate privateer "Florida" in 1863. This is a collection of correspondence involving the Redman and Coombs families, and consisting mostly of letters to Captain Redman from his wife Ethalinda (until her death in 1878) and letters to and from relatives, business associates, and his children Walter and Elnora. Theirs was a shipping family, and the content involves shipping news and well as family news and local gossip, some of which is pretty juicy - "Wm. McGilvery of Searsport was found dead in his attic with an Overcoat over his head and a pistol in his nose and his life was insured for $40,000 and his folks try to make it appear that it was an accident..." A poignant theme in the earlier letters is Redman's prolonged absences from home, and his wife's wishes that he spend more time with his family. Most originate in Islesboro, and surrounding communities (though there is a group from Florida and other places where Redman lived and worked in the 1880s), and are sent to such diverse locations as Philadelphia, Havana, New Orleans, and Ireland. Also included is an inventory of Redman's possessions in 1879, following the death of his first wife, billheads, river steamboat tickets, and articles of association for Redman's group planning to sell real estate in southern California. Interesting primary source material.
