        Autograph letter signed to John Richardson

      Edinburgh, 1837. Edinburgh, 1837. <p>Bell, Charles (1774-1842). Autograph letter signed to John Richardson (1780-1864). Ainslie Place [Edinburgh], February 3, 1837 [date from postmark]. 4pp., including address leaf. 229 x 189 mm. Marginal lacuna where seal was broken, affecting two words, small marginal tear in second leaf, minor soiling, but fine otherwise, and with Bell&#39;s wax seal intact. Complete transcription included.</p><p>An extraordinarily candid and revealing letter from surgeon and anatomist Charles Bell, whose pioneering experiments in neuroanatomy led to the discovery of the Bell-Magendie law (stating that the anterior branch of spinal nerve roots contain only motor fibers and the posterior roots contain only sensory fibers), as well as the first description of Bell&#39;s palsy (facial paralysis due to a lesion of the facial nerve). </p><p>Bell, a native of Edinburgh, received his medical degree from Edinburgh University in 1799 but spent most of his career in London, where he ran the Great Windmill Street School of Anatomy (established by William Hunter) and helped to found the Middlesex Hospital Medical School. In 1836 he returned to Scotland to take the position of professor of surgery at Edinburgh University. The present letter, sent about six months after Bell&#39;s departure from England, was written to John Richardson, one of Bell&#39;s oldest and closest friends, a lawyer who, like Bell himself, had left Scotland to seek his fortune in London. In the letter Bell spoke frankly about some of the difficulties he was experiencing in his new situation, including ongoing financial troubles and the inadequacies of his surgical colleagues. The overall tone of the letter is critical and somewhat depressed, which may be why it was not included in the Letters of Sir Charles Bell (1870).</p><p>The letter begins as follows:</p><p>"Dear John, This is the end of the week when my mind has some freedom, some cessation from hourly duties, little present cares when I can think of the inmates of Fludyer Street. Still I feel here as in a dream & that awake I might walk down to my friends in Westminster thro G. park!</p><p>"The prevailing disease here is unabated & when I read the English papers I fear much on your account. I sorrowed for poor Niddle [or Neddle] fainting & felt for friend Hope with her shaken nerves."</p><p>Fludyer Street in London, where Richardson and his family lived, had also been the site of Bell&#39;s first residence in that city; his biographer notes that "the walk from Fludyer Street to Piccadilly through St. James&#39;s and the Green Park was a favorite with Bell" (Gordon-Taylor, p. 16). The names mentioned in the second paragraph are most likely those of Richardson&#39;s children; the Letters of Sir Charles Bell includes a reference to Hope Richardson&#39;s wedding. Bell then expresses his dissatisfaction with the state of surgical practice in Edinburgh:</p><p>". . . Indeed the practice here of surgery &c &c does not do-the errors I am forced to witness are painful. Tho the surgeons are well educated they want opportunities and when desperate cases, which are those I see, are under the family surgeon I have an office of great delicacy, both to do my duty & to save appearances-they want decision [i.e. lack decisiveness]--today I have seen a gentleman lost by five hours delay.</p><p>"My class continues to be as much distinguished for order & attention as by members-would some of our chairs were better filled-Monro & Home are either careless or incapable. However all goes smoothly & really my hour from ten to eleven is the shortest & pleasantest in the day!"</p><p>"Monro" refers to Alexander Monro tertius (1773-1859), who succeeded his grandfather and father as professor of anatomy at Edinburgh University. Monro&#39;s lack of ability as a teacher and administrator had led to a significant decline in enrollment at the university&#39;s medical school. We have not been able to identify "Home," but the reference cannot be to Sir Everard Home, who died in 1832.</p><p>In the next portion of the letter Bell discusses the worrying state of his finances. While in London Bell had been able to earn between £1,400 and £2,400 a year, but the professorship at Edinburgh paid only £400 annually and Bell spent the last six years of his life struggling to supplement this meager income. His anxieties over money are clearly expressed here:</p><p>"Altho&#39; I knew that Brougham has nothing to do with the Minister, I wrote to him to get me a salary (for all the rogues have salaries but me)-. He answered that he was so provoked at them refusing me a pension that he wd not ask again-. I suppose his situation precludes him. He recommended me to apply to the Lord Advocate & I replied that I wd. be d___d [damned] first.</p><p>"To you I have never made a [secret?] of Geo: Jos: difficulties & you might [per]ceive that my place here makes it rough on me. I paid £140 the other day for a printers account-bankrupt bill business. If I had got a salary I meant to have employed it in relieving him. I expect to be obliged to bind myself for no less a sum than £900. -Is it not hard. But for this I might make a respectable end of life."</p><p>Lord Brougham (Henry Peter Brougham, 1st Baron Brougham and Vaux [1778-1868]), another Edinburgh native, was a high-ranking British statesman who served as Lord Chancellor of England from 1830 to 1834. Brougham and Bell were old friends, and had collaborated on an annotated edition of William Paley&#39;s Natural Theology, published in 1836. Bell obviously hoped that Brougham would be able to pull some strings in his favor, either to increase his salary or to obtain him a government pension; however, at the time this letter was written Brougham had been out of office for three years and his political influence was diminished.</p><p>In the following paragraph Bell refers to expenses incurred by his brother George Joseph (1770-1843) in connection with the elder Bell&#39;s work for the Scottish government. In 1833 George Joseph had been made head of a royal commission to inquire into Scottish bankruptcy law, and it was he who was largely responsible for writing and issuing the commission&#39;s reports. It is evident from Charles Bell&#39;s letter that the commissioners were expected to pay their own printing costs for "bankrupt bill business," and that George Joseph was unable to do this without his brother&#39;s help.</p><p>In the remainder of the letter Bell mentions more old friends: his brother-in-law and former pupil Alexander ("Alic") Shaw (1804-90), a surgeon at Middlesex Hospital and author of An Account of Sir Charles Bell&#39;s Discoveries in the Nervous System (1860); and Henry Thomas Cockburn (1779-1854), a Scottish judge and one of the leaders of Scotland&#39;s Whig party. He ends the letter with these poignant words:</p><p>"Let me hear from time to time & always first of the household. Let me not feel that I have lost my surest friends. Marion [Bell&#39;s wife] has no complaint but looks poorly as if this country did not agree with her & now that I have said that I shall close this without giving her the corner I promised [i.e., a corner of a sheet of this letter paper to write a personal note to Richardson]. Very truly yours, C Bell.</p><p>Gordon-Taylor, Sir Charles Bell: His Life and Times. Dictionary of National Biography. 40980</p>

        Ship&#39;s Log for the Schooner Caro - Save during an 1837 Shipwreck

      Chesapeake Bay: Manuscript, 1837. Chesapeake Bay: Manuscript, 1837. Large logbook (cover is 13.5" x 20", pages are 12" x 19") bound in heavy sailcloth. Over 13 pages of entries. Wear and tear with water stains, probably incurred during rescue from the shipwreck. The Caro was a coastal schooner, captained by A. Bacon during a voyage that began on 10 December 1837 at Alexandria, Virginia on the Potomac River. After picking up a cargo of lumber, corn, oats and hay at Georgetown in the District of Columbia, the ship sailed for Gary&#39;s Ferry on the St. Johns River near Jacksonville, Florida. Plagues with bad luck on the voyage, the ship lost some of its cargo and a few days later the main boom broke loose and destroyed both the main rigging and stern boat. Arriving on the St Johns and Black Creek they ran aground several times and required lighters to unload some of the cargo. After an unsuccessful attempt to get tow from a steamboat the crew had to tow the ship themselves using the a longboat. After unloading the remainder of its cargo, the ship sailed to Charleston, South Caroling to take on wood before departing for Chesapeake Bay. Within days, it became apparent that the ship would face heavy weather and while the crew began making preparations several gales struck the Caro. Then, on 12 February 1837 "at 11 pm the wind increased to a hurricane. Furled foresail and lay under bare poles . . . at 3 1/2 A.M. the wind & sea still worse the vessel broached to and could not get her before it again, as she lay on her beam ends. Cut away both masts: The foremast unstepped & ripped up the deck. All hands employed in stopping the hole in the deck with boards and tarparlins. . . . The main boom and mainsail went overboard with the masts." Try as they might, the crew could not stop the ship from taking on water, and by the morning of the 15th after being struck again "by gales in a heavy sea," the Caro was dead in the water, "laying in a trough in the sea leaking bad." Luckily, the Master of the Brig Tuscany bound from Charleston to Hamburg notice their plight and at 7 A.M. "All hands left the Schr & went on board the Brig taking with us the longboat and what sails, rigging, &c we could." . Canvas. Very Good. Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

        Autograph letter signed to Charles Waterton

      Yorkshire Museum, 1837. Yorkshire Museum, 1837. <p>Phillips, John (1800-1874). Autograph letter signed to Charles Waterton (1782-1865). Yorkshire Museum, January 6, 1837. 1 page plus integral address leaf. 230 x 185 mm. Creased where previously folded, light soiling on address leaf.</p><p>Phillips was the nephew and ward of the famous British geologist William Smith. After completing his education, Phillips accompanied his uncle on various research tours made in connection with Smith&#39;s geological maps, and assisted Smith in giving courses of geological lectures in York. In 1826 Phillips became keeper of the Yorkshire Museum and secretary of the Yorkshire Philosophical Society. In 1831 he helped to found the British Association for the Advancement of Science, and served as the BAAS&#39;s first assistant secretary from 1832 to 1859. In 1834 Phillips was appointed professor of geology at King&#39;s College, London; and in 1856 he succeeded William Buckland to the readership of geology at Oxford University. During his tenure at Oxford Phillips helped to found the Oxford Museum, and served as curator of the Ashmolean Museum from 1854 to 1870.</p><p>The English naturalist Charles Waterton, to whom Phillips&#39;s letter is addressed, is best known for introducing the anesthetic agent curare to Europe, and for his scientific explorations of Guyana, described in his Wanderings in South America (1825). He is also credited with building the world&#39;s first nature and wildfowl reserve (located on the grounds of his estate in Yorkshire), and for inventing the bird nesting box. Waterton was famed for his eccentricities, which included pretending to be a dog and biting the legs of his dinner guests under the table!</p><p>Phillips&#39;s letter to Waterton, written in his role as secretary of the Yorkshire Philosophical Society, is an attempt to persuade Waterton not to relinquish his membership in the Society. Phillips appeals to Waterton&#39;s interest in ornithology:</p><p>Ever since I received your letter requesting that your name might be withdrawn from the list of Hon. Members of the Yorkshire Philosophical Society I have been hoping that some fortunate circumstance might arrive on which I could found a reasonable plea to intreat you not to persevere in your intention of withdrawing your name-and I would fain hope that the progress now making in our Museum toward a more adequate representation of ornithology might be admitted as such a plea. I can assure you that when I mentioned the subject to the Council of the Society a very general expression of regret followed. On such matters no step is ever taken by the Council till the Annual Meeting in February (the first Monday), after which day, if unfortunately we can not prevail with you to remain associated with us, I shall very unwillingly omit your name in the next printed list. With the most sincere regard & esteem Believe me to be, </p><p>Yours very truly,</p><p>John Phillips</p><p>Sec&#39;y YPS</p><p>Wikipedia, "John Phillips, geologist," and "Charles Waterton". </p>

They are today best known for the "Kelliegram Bindings", in which the covers or doublures bear pictorial scenes or figures composed of multi-coloured onlays, tooled in blind and gilt.

        [Playbill on silk]

      S. Johnson, 1837. S. Johnson, 1837. Victoria on Charles Macready: "Ranting a Little Too Much at Times" Well, There May Be a Reason for That Silk Playbill Macready, William Charles (1793-1873). [Playbill on silk]. November 17, 1837. Program of Werner by Lord Byron (Featuring Macready as Werner) and Auber's opera, Fra Diavolo (first act). Printed in red and blue by S. Johnson. Victoria crown armory above copy. 19 x 12 1/2" with 2" tassels all the way around. Tipped to linen backing. Crack down center fold with no loss of text; dampstain along lower inch of playbill. Silk playbills indicate a performance in front of royalty. Macready, in the autumn of 1837, undertook the management of Covent Garden, which he opened on September 30. Following a command performance of Byron's Werner at Covent Garden on November 17, 1837, Queen Victoria criticized Macready for "ranting a little too much at times" (Foulkes, 5). This is reported to be the origin of a famous comment about the actor which stayed with him throughout his life. At this performance, Macready first met the 18 year-old Victoria, who had ascended to the throne June 20, 1837. Macready was, perhaps, exhausted by the preparation of this important event which, according to his diary, included "an overflow crowd, a great number of people [who] fainted and others [who] could not see the play due to the crowd. . . . I acted, not to please myself; I could not recover my self-possession. . . I could not help thinking as I sat dressed for Werner, waiting for my call and listening to the acclamation of the audience on the Queen's arrival, of the folly and impiety of thus pampering and spoiling the mind of one human being, and in the same act debasing those of millions" (Macready, 425-6). Perhaps his exhaustion and his "democratic" tendencies (he had already toured in America) had caused a forced performance under difficult circumstances.

        Recueil de Romances, dediees a ma soeur Adele

      1837 - Eleven exquisite, highly detailed watercolors of battle scenes, landscapes, waterfronts, etc. 12mo. 16 by 10 cm. 48 leaves, writing on virtually all rectos and versos. Specifically, the watercolors include a portrait of Napoleon, a bucolic landscape with a seraph, a sheperdess in a bucolic setting, a ship in a coastal seascape, a panorama of a botanical garden at Avranche, a hilly panorama, a view of St. St.-Michel, the battles of Waterloo, Montreau and Arcole, a bouquet of flowers. In addition, there are decorative devices, most notably on the title page, and every page is framed by an unique ornamental band. The poetry, all presumably by Caillon, is written in a neat, cursive calligraphic hand. A common thread running through the writing is Normandy and the war, and Caillon pays homage to the former Emperor. Mainly, though, this is a manuscript of extraordinary phyiscal beauty.

        Master Wace, His Chronicle of the Norman Conquest from the Roman de Rou. Translated with Notes and Illustrations by Edgar Taylor

      London: William Pickering, 1837. London: William Pickering, 1837 First edition, one of only twelve large paper copies, of which this is number 9, signed by William Pickering Most of the illustrations are taken from the Bayeux Tapestry. Others are from the illuminated manuscript in the Cambridge University Library of Estoire de Seint Aedward le Rei. The printer is Charles Whittingham of the Chiswick Press, a neighbor and good friend of William Pickering, who produced a number of works for him, including Henry Shaw's Dresses and Decorations of the Middle Ages and Alphabets, Numerals and Devices of the Middle Ages, as well as the Byrne Euclid. Though less well known than these, Wace's Chronicle, produced a decade earlier, is another splendid highlight of the collaboration of Whittingham and Pickering. Large octavo. With thirty-four hand-colored full-page illustrations, plus a great many hand-colored initial letters, head-pieces, tail-pieces throughout. Also with tinted illustrations and medallions, and a double-page engraved map of Normandy Contemporary full red morocco, ruled in gilt on covers. Spine elaborately gilt-tooled in compartments, all edges gilt. Gilt-ruled turn-ins. Some light soiling to covers, otherwise a fine attractive copy, in cloth slipcase and chemise. Wace (c. 1110-after 1174), sometimes called Robert Wace, was a Norman poet, born in Jersey and educated at Caen. Around 1130, he took up ecclesiastical work, possibly as a teacher. Virtually all that is known of his life is from autobiographical references in his works, which include Roman de Brut, a verse history of Britain; and the Roman de Rou, a verse history of the Dukes of Normandy. According to Wace, the Roman de Rou, from which the present work was taken, was commissioned by Henry II or England. A large part of it deals with William the Conqueror and the Norman Conquest. His references to oral tradition in his family hint that he relied not only on documentary evidence but on eyewitness accounts by family members, though any family member who would have been there would have been dead by the time he began his chronicle. The language in which he wrote was the Old Norman dialect of the Norman language, the precursor of Jerriais. Jersey writers consider him the founder of Jersey literature.

        The French Revolution: a History

      London: James Fraser, 1837. London: James Fraser,, 1837. In three volumes. 3 volumes, duodecimo (186 x 120 mm). Late nineteenth-century blue straight-grain morocco, brown morocco labels, raised bands, spine elaborately gilt in compartments, boards panelled in gilt and blind, inner gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, silk page markers. Housed in a blue cloth slipcase. With half-titles. The occasional light blemish to contents, extremities lightly rubbed and with a few tiny chips, spines faintly sunned, boards of Vol. III a little discoloured. A finely bound set in excellent condition. First edition, first and only impression, one of 1,000 copies printed. Without the 2 pp. advertisement at the end of Vol. II but with all the half-titles. "Carlyle wrote his French Revolution as a secular 'tract for the times' and as a warning for his compatriots of the frightful consequences of materialism, utilitarianism and democracy. Scottish puritanism and German romanticism were his lodestars; 'History is the essence of innumerable biographies' was his historical creed. The result is not a work of scholarship but a prose epic, teeming with colourful scenes of dramatic events and imaginative portraits of the leading revolutionaries. The book at once captured the English-speaking world, and has, outside France, moulded popular conception of the French revolution down to the present day" (PMM).
