        On The Oleum Jecoris Aselli, or Cod Liver Oil As a Therapeutic Agent in Certain Forms of Gout, Rheumatism, and Scrofula; with cases

      S. Highley, London 1841 - 180, [2] p. 23 cm. Blue paper covers. Spine deteriorated and chipped. Ink notation and label on front cover. Inscription on title page. Though John Hughes Bennett (1812-1875) is best remembered today for the first description of leukemia, he also advanced medical science in other ways. He opposed blood-letting, supported the admission of women to medical schools, was an outstanding teacher, and has been called the founder of phisiology. His advocacy of cod liver oil as a therapeutic agent is perhaps less well known. G&M 1858. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Letter Signed to an unnamed correspondent, 4 pages 8vo (the last a little soiled), Tapton House, 25 June 1841.

      - Agreeing to lecture to a Mechanics' Institution, and suggesting that the Insitution should be supplied with models to illustrate the mechanical powers and the various steam engines. '. I think however it will be more clear to the young Mechanics if I get models made of all the mechanical powers to lecture on, the models will continue to be useful to all new members. I think by and Bye you ought to have skeleton models of the condensing Engine, High Pressure Engine, Locomotive Engine & Steam boat Engine. These models ought to be made in sections to show the interior working part of the different Engines. .'Stephenson was an enthusiastic supporter of the various Mechanics' Institutes which had grown up in the northern counties. As early as 1824 he had presided at a public meeting for the purpose of establishing an Institute in Newcastle, and he became himself a very popular lecturer. Samuel Smiles (Lives of the Engineers, 1861, vol. 3. page 362) describes the effect:'On more than one occasion, the author [Smiles] had the pleasure of listening to George Stephenson's homely but forcible addresses at the annual soirées of the Leeds Mechanics' Institute. He was always an immense favourite with his audiences there. His personal appearance was greatly in his favour. A handsome, ruddy, expressive face, lit up by bright dark-blue eyes, prepared one for his earnest words when he stood up to speak and the cheers had subsided which invariably hailed his rising. He was not glib, but he was very impressive. .'

        PROUT'S MICROCOSM, The Artist's Sketch-book of Groups of Figures, Shipping, And other Picturesque Objects. By Samuel Prout, F.S.A. Painter in Water Colours in Ordinary to Her Majesty and His Royal Highness Prince Albert.

      Tilt and Bogue, Fleet Street., London 1841 - Folio. 11 x 14.5 inches. [4] pp. + 24 tinted lithographs, printed by C. Hullmandel, Bound in original cloth, gilt. Extremities worn and Joints neatly reinforced. Some foxing occasionally affecting plates and water stains on edges of the first three and last plates touching the edges of the images; otherwise a fine copy. Included are composite views of the entrance to Dover Harbour with smaller vignette views of loafers on beach, watching shipping and of a hulk and fishing vessels beached on Dover waterfront. Prout's Microcosm, was a drawing book for the use of students and artists in practising groups of people and maritime scenes for compositional ideas. Samuel Prout (1783-1852) was a water colour painter, print artist and a pioneer of lithography. From 1819-29 he toured extensively in France, the Low Countries and Italy and sketches in this volume reflect these visits including Normandy and Venice. Prout's draughtsmanship was admired by Ruskin who praised him in Modern Painters and The Stones of Venice. According to COPAC these plates were first issued as part works in 1822, but this 1841 volume was the first full edition in book form. KENT DOVER TOPOGRAPHY KENT - EUROPE DRAWINGS 19TH CENTURY KENT

        The Book of Mormon: An Account Written by the Hand of Mormon Upon Plates Taken from the Plates of Nephi

      Liverpool: Printed by J. Tompkins, for Brigham Young, Heber C. Kimball, and Parley P. Pratt. By order of the translator., 1841. First European Edition. Leather bound. 643 pp. Sextodecimo [14.5 cm]; bound in full brown Moroccan with decorative floral gilt stamped borders to boards. Title gilt stamped on the backstrip. Gilt stamped floral panels between bands. Decorative gilt dentelles. All edges gilt. Very good. Gentle rubbing to extremities of boards. Backstrip bumped and starting at head. Minor staining to page 582. A nice presentation binding of the fourth published 'Book of Mormon'. This edition of the Book of Mormon was the first printed outside of the United States and the fourth overall. The 1841 printing was a faithful reprint of the 1837 Kirtland edition. With the exception of the two Nauvoo editions, all subsequent Book of Mormon editions in English descend from this 1841 Liverpool edition. This is the first Book of Mormon to include an index. At a Conference in the spring of 1840, Heber C. Kimball, Brigham Young, and Parley P. Pratt were tasked with securing a copyright and printing the first British edition. The three men quickly took to their charges and within three weeks Young asked Smith's permission to begin printing. The men hired John Tompkins to print five thousand copies. Tompkins finished the job in January 1841. Twenty copies were immediately sent to Heber C. Kimball and Wilford Woodruff who were laboring in London at the time. The two promptly (the same day in fact) secured copyright at Stationers' Hall and deposited five copies. Mormon Imprints 12. Crawley 98. Flake/Draper 598.

First performed in Paris at the Theatre Italien on January 7, 1842. "When, after the death of Varela, the original version of the Stabat mater fell into the hands of the Parisian publisher Aulagnier, who printed it and arranged a performance, Rossini, partly at the prompting of Troupenas and partly because the work published by Aulagnier was a composite, disowned this version and decided to complete the work himself. The revised Stabat mater was ready by the end of 1841. The first performance, arranged by the brothers Leon and Marie Escudier, was in Paris at the Theatre Italien on 7 January 1842. It was received with enormous enthusiasm. The first Italian performance, at Bologna, followed in March under the direction of Donizetti." Philip Gossett in Grove online

        "Manual of the Corporation of the City of New-York", a complete run of the first series of Valentine's, from 1841, the first year, through 1870

      New York:: Wm. C. Bryant,. 1841-1870.. Hardcover. Very good overall. A complete run of the first series of "Valentine's Manuals", from its beginning in 1841 through 1870. Valentine was the clerk of the Common Council, and was instructed to compile the volumes, that included the city’s annual reports and directories, becoming the first person to preserve New York City’s records. The manuals were published from 1841/2 until Valentine's death in 1866. There was no volume issued in 1867 and the following year, the manuals resumed publication for a few years under successive clerks-Joseph Shannon (1868 and 1869) and John Hardy (1870). "The first five volumes of the Manual are in a class by themselves, they are, and long have been, rare books..." (Hufeland, Otto, Valentine's Manuals, a General Index, [1906], 1981, pp xxvi). The volumes are a treasure trove of New York City history, updated on an annual basis. Each volume contains a folding map of New York, showing its history, expansion and upgrades to transportation, etc. The handsome lithograph plates of historic buildings record private and public buildings that are largely now lost to us. All but one of the 28 volumes are in the original brown cloth and are bright copies. Most are also uniformly boxed (3 volumes without boxes). This is a collection that was assembled in the 1960s by an avid collector and has not been tampered with. Maps and illustrations complete according to the "Index to the Illustrations in the Manuals of the Corporation of the City of New York", published by the Society of Iconophiles, 1906 (1981). Also included is the first edition of the "Historical Index of New York Common Council Manuals 1841-1870", (1900), an essential index for historical references. Several volumes belonged to NY City Alderman; the first volume belonged to Edmund G. Rawson, and others are signed by later Alderman of the City. There some binding issues - spine tips chipped; boards detached & spine chip on the only leather volume (1849, but the original cloth covers are bound in); back board detached (1859); spine loose (1862); volume shaken, with hinge split (1869). Overall, an exceptionally nice set of this essential New York City history.

        The Slighted Vow; or, an Incident Upon the Mississippi

      Philadelphia: American Baptist Publication Society. Hardcover. Fair. c. 1841. 36 p. 15 cm. B&w frontispiece. Hardcover. Dark cloth. Marbled boards. Spine worn. Chipped spine label. Corners bumped, and boards rubbed bare on fore edge. Wormhole in front hinge. Owner&#39;s sig. in endpaper. Foxing. Pencil notes in endpaper. On Feb. 2, 1896, a fire broke out at the American Baptist Publication Society building, destroying much of the collection. The following June, Samuel B. Colgate donated his personal collection of Baptist documents to Colgate University in Hamilton, NY. This short testimonial piece was published by the Society in its early years, before the fire. In addition to its religious elements, this is a travel memoir. The framed narrative of Judge N. susinctly chronicles his journey from Alabama to Mississippi and Ohio, mentioning Natchez, Pittsburg, Wheeling and New Orleans. The narrator describes the river, and their method of travel. This includes three footnotes of interest. The first explains their vessel, an "ark" which is described as: "a flat and wide boat made of rough hewn timber, to float with the current upon the Western waters. They are generally made for a single voyage down the river, and, after the freight they bear is discharged, they are ignominiously doomed to be broken up for firewood, or to build a temporary shanty" (p. 7). The second footnote suggestively describes "Sawyers": "Sawyers are tall trees whose roots, in their voyage down the river, catch on the bottom and thus anchor them, while the tops, reaching just above the surface, bow most gracefully as the waters rush by them. They are very dangerous to steam boats going up stream. Striking them with great force, they run them through their bottom, and sink almost immediately" (p. 9-10). The final footnote is a short note that "Wholly sunken trees are called snags" (p. 10). The footnotes, and the detailed descriptions of sights and sounds along the river, make this more than a simple religious tract. The religious element to the story is simple. On their return home, a near accident causes the Judge&#39;s brother, Caleb, to promise devotion to God if he should live. But Caleb&#39;s heart does not follow his words. Even upon a chance meeting with another man of faith, an early Puritan minister of New England, Caleb denies the vow he made on the ark. Coming back to the present, our narrator, a friend of Judge N., meets Caleb and relates his unfortunate death, which occurs before he can repent. Predates Mark Twain&#39;s "Tom Sawyer" by at least twenty five years. A piece of desirable Americana, this petite text offers a glimpse into the religious and regional history of the Mississippi. World Catalogue locates only one copy in the New York Society Archives, and offers an approximate date of 1841.

      Moon, F.G., London 1841 - The Prints of David Roberts:Part 1 - The PrinterLouis Haghe (1806-1885) was one of the msot skillful exponents of the tinted lithograph who became a leading reproductive lithographer in England and on the Continent. Haghe's reputation as a lithographer was primarily based upon topographical views, of which Twyman notes "his most important work of this kind, the translation of Roberts' sketches of the Holy Land, represents the culmination of his art".Part 2 - The Publication of Roberts' Holy Land and EgyptRoberts first sketched in his journals "on the spot" the vaious subjects which, on returning to London, he transcribed into finished paintings and watercolors. These then formed the basis of the lithographs drawn and printed by Louis Haghe. It is interesting to note that in some instances Roberts' original drawings were twice or three times the size of the published print, which indicated the skill of Haghe and his assistants in transferring Roberts' designs onto lithographic stones.Part 3 - A Genesis of Roberts' PrintsDavid Roberts fulfilled a boyhood dream by visiting the East and recording what he saw there; by August 1838 he had resolved to "visit the Holy Land, and make drawings of the scenes of sacred history and the antiquities of Egypt". By this time Roberts had already established himself as a successful topographical artist and published his set of Spanish scenery as tinted lithographs, Picturesque Sketches in Spain, 1837. Eventually he would be elected to the prestigious Royal Academy on the strength of his topographical paintings.Part 4 - The PlatesRoberts' Holy Land and Egypt project has been called "the most ambitious work ever published in England with lithographic plates" (according to Micheal Twyman). Its production involved over 600 lithographic stones used over an eight to nine year period. It is generally agreed the lithographers Day & Haghe were the most efficient for such large scale work, while Louis Haghe himself was a master lithographer.The plate formats strongly influenced their presentation as prints: large full-page and small half-page vignettes representing what Roberts intended to be the difference between finished drawings and sketches. roberts was a good judge of accurate transposition of his watercolors and sketches into lithography.Today historians regard Roberts' Holy Land and Egypt as the last link between the established artist and topographical lithography. Since Roberts' prints were the most costly publishing venture in Britain at the time, undertaken by a publisher "on his own responsibility", Roberts sighed on its completion: " . thank God . that with being blessed with health and backed by my ever esteemed friend Louis Haghe I may also say the most satisfactory."References:Micheal Twyman, Lithography, 1800-1850, London, 1970Katherine Sim, David Roberts, London 1984J.R.
