[Cuba, Havana] Rodriguez, Rafael
The map is identified as "Plancha 3a. Parte 2a" and was published as part of a very are set of 16 or 17 maps and plans of Cuba, entitled Atlas Cubano. Consta de ocho hojas en papel marquilla apaisado, y contienen lo siguiente (1841-42). As noted by Emilio Cueto (p. 151): Nineteenth-century Havana witnessed the production of three outstanding mapmakers: the Atlas Cubano containing sixteen or seventeen city maps by Rodriguez ( 1841 -1842), the Havana map by Albear ( 1874), and the monumental geotopographical map of Cuba, in 36 sheets, by Pichardo (1875). The following is Emilio Cueto's complete entry describing the atlas: Rodriguez Rodriguez, Rafael Ρίο(Spanish military surveyor, active ca. 1840s-1870s) Rodriguez published the first Cuban atlas to be printed in Cuba (the Atlas Cubano), being a collection of 16 (?) city maps. Trelles mentions 17 maps, without listing them, and indeed the San Antonio map bears that number, but there are gaps in sequencing, so they do not add up to 17 in my count. Ads appearing in the Diario de La Habana for 1842 give different numbering altogether and could not confirm the existence of 17 maps . . . Maps measure ca. 19.75 X 15.25" and were lithographed at the Real Sociedad Patriotica in Havana during 1841-1842.1 am unaware of the circumstances surrounding the conception and production of this important work. Copy in Havana National Library. The atlas remained unfinished. Trelles cites a contemporary source indicating that "El geôgrafo y ayudante del Cuerpo de Artilleria Sr. Rodriguez no Ilegô a completar este … [Click Below for Full Description]

PROUDHON, Pierre-Joseph.
Librairie du Prévot, Paris, 1841. Half-title + TP + [V]-XX = Preface + [1]-314 + [315]-[316] = Table des Matieres, Large 12mo. Second Edition.The first edition of this book is all but impossible to find having been published by César Bajat in an extremely small press run intended only for the members of the Academy of Besançon. This, his first book, was Proudhon's most notorious and the one that made him famous at the age of thirty-two. He was the first person to declare himself an "anarchist" and is widely regarded as one of that ideology's most influential theorists. (Proudhon is even considered by many to be the "father of anarchism".)The book garnered Proudhon instant notoriety not only for its radicalism but also for its most famous passage in which he characterizes property as "theft". The author's love of telling phrases distorted the nature of his argument somewhat, for this book was, in fact, an investigation of abuses that had entered into the institution of property rather than a condemnation of concept of property itself. The book's publication attracted the attention of the French authorities (of course!) and it was also noticed by Karl Marx who reviewed the book favorably. (Marx called it "the first decisive, vigorous and scientific examinationof the institution of property" and hailed it as a "scientific manifesto of the French proletariat") which led to a lively correspondence between the two revolutionaries. They influenced each otherin significant ways and even met in Paris while Marx was exiled there. Their friendship finally ended when Marx responded to … [Click Below for Full Description]

(AUCTION CATALOGUE: [MOTTELEY, J. Charles])
vii, [1], 335, [3] pp. 8vo, orig. blue wrappers, uncut. Paris: Silvestre, 1841. An important sale, the second of two of Motteley's books. "Cette collection nombreuse contient des manuscrits, des livres imprimés sur vélin, des ouvrages curieux en tout genre, sans offrir cependant de véritables trésors bibliographiques. On remarque quelques volumes aux armes d'Henri II, d'Anne d'Autriche, de Richelieu, de Mazarin."-Brunet, Dictionnaire de Bibliologie Catholique, col. 499. Motteley was one of the great eccentrics in the annals of book collectors; Pichon described him as "peut-être le plus bizarre de nos bibliophiles." We learn from Brunet that Motteley (1778-1850), lived as a hermit, alone and isolated in a rundown apartment. He was afraid to make home repairs because of his fear of disturbing the treasures on which he had spent so much money. Upon his death, he left the French State the remainder of his collection. Very fine copy. 2652 lots.

Voici encore un titre qui a été très probablement desservi par sa rareté, trois exemplaires seulement sont recensés dans les institutions (BnF, Lyon et Göttingen). Dans ce récit de sa gloire et de sa chute, et de ses ennuis, madame Girard ne semble pas exempte d'un esprit de revendication. Son rôle durant les événements de 1848 ou elle prit partie pour l'insurrection, quoique avéré n'est pas encore éclairci de nos jours, certains la soupçonnant au contraire d'être un informateur .- - - Marie-François Machioletti, née à Mâcon en 17991, est une limonadière ayant exercée à Lyon au xixe siècle. Connue sous le nom de Madame Girard ou veuve Girard du nom de son mari. Elle fut surnommée « la Reine des tilleuls » en raison du comptoir qu'elle tenait à Lyon sur la place Bellecour, réputée alors pour ses nombreux tilleuls. Fille d'un officier de Napoléon originaire de Turin, Françoise Machiorletto (appelée Marie-François Machioletti dans un acte judiciaire de 1850) est élevée par sa tante avant d'épouser Claude-François Girard à Mâcon en 1819, ils auront 6 enfants. Ils s'installent à Lyon en 1824-1825 où ils tiennent le café d'Italie à port Saint-Clair (actuellement sur le quai André Lassagne). Ils installent un nouveau comptoir en 1829 sous les tilleuls de la place Bellecour, un lieu de promenade très à la mode à Lyon.

"If there is one measure better calculated than another to produce that state of things so much deprecated by all true republicans, by which the rich are daily adding to their hoards and the poor sinking deeper into penury, it is an exclusive metallic currency."On a cold, wet day, March 4, 1841, President Harrison delivered the longest inaugural address in history. Harrison wrote the entire speech himself, though it was edited by his soon-to-be Secretary of State, Daniel Webster. Webster said afterwards that in the process of editing the text, he had "killed seventeen Roman proconsuls." Contracting pneumonia, Harrison became the first president to die in office 31 days after delivering this address. His vice president John Tyler became the new president and served out Harrison's term.In an 8,460-word address, printed here on the front page of the National Intelligencer, Harrison presents a detailed statement of the Whig agenda and a repudiation of the populism and policies of Democratic Presidents Andrew Jackson and Martin Van Buren. Harrison promises to reestablish the Bank of the United States, to issue paper currency, to use his veto power sparingly, and to appoint qualified officers of government in contrast to the spoils system that Jackson heralded. He favors term limits, limits on the powers of the presidency, and devotion to the nation rather than party. Harrison avoids specifics on the divisive issue of slavery, which in theory he might have opposed, but of wh … [Click Below for Full Description]

Prior to his excursions into Mesoamerica, Stephens traveled extensively in Europe and wrote two books of travel about his experiences there. While in Naples he met Dr. Marinus Willet. The doctor was the brother of Edward M. Willet, Stephens' classmate and close friend at Columbia, who became his brother-in-law upon marrying Amelia Ann, the older sister of John.

London, William Smith, 1841. Large 4to (26.9 x 20.8 cm). Finely hand-coloured lithographed frontispiece, xii, 139 pp., 42 finely hand-coloured lithographed plates. Contemporary full Russia leather. Boards with gilt triple border, gilt lining to edges and gilt inner dentelles; front board with gilt initials; spine with five gilt-lined raised bands; compartment rich gilt with vases and floral patterns, and gilt title. Marbled endpapers. All edges gilt. First edition of a publication by the English entomologists Henry Noel Humphreys (1810-1879) and John Obadiah Westwood (1805-1893). The front free endpaper verso contains the signatures of 28 Etonians, and tipped in on the first blank recto a folded leaf, dated 16 December 1848, in which 32 Etonians (including all those who undersigned) send their respect to a fellow Etonion who, "owing to circumstances over which you have no control are unable to continue your mastership at Eton". The initials, C. W. D. may be those of the (un)fortunate Etonian who received this book. The text is mostly by Westwood; the illustrations are by Humphreys, hence a tendency among compilers to list this work under Westwood. "62 Col. Taf." in Horn-Schenkling is an error and should read 42. This copy is complete. Plate 11 bound before 10, as usual (i.e. following the text), two pinpoint holes near the fore edge of plate 12-apparently the binder reversed the facing. Slight spotting to the endpapers; text and plates mostly fine, exceptionally clean. An extraordinary copy.

Son procédé consistait en une petite incision à la partie latérale du cou pour introduire par l'artère carotide, à l'aide d'une pompe, la liqueur conservatrice ; puis, à l'extérieur, des bandes imbibées de liqueurs aromatiques. En deux heures, l'opération était terminée, et le corps renfermé dans un cercueil de plomb. Il n'y avait plus de mutilations, ni de soustraction d'organes.

Pages uncut with age toning to margins, Extract from Memoires des savants etrangers, Vol. 7, pages 105-175, 1841. The first page of the paper states, ce memoire a remporte le prix de physiologie experimentale, seance publique du 28 decembre, 1835 [this memoir earned the prize of experimental physiology, public session of December 28, 1835]. The plates depict the microcirculation of frog mesentery, salamander lung, neonatal rat bladder, webbed foot and mesentery of frog, and equipment used in the experiments. JEAN LEONARD MARIE POISEUILLE (1797-1869) studied at the Ecole Polytechnique in Paris. During his doctoral research on The force of the aortic heart (Poiseuille 1828), Poiseuille invented the U-tube mercury manometer (called the hemodynamometer) and used it to measure pressures in the arteries of horses and dogs. A recording version of the manometer, named the Poiseuille-Ludwig hemodynamometer, was used in medical schools until the 1960s and to this day blood pressures are reported in mm Hg due to Poiseuille's invention. Between 1828 and 1868 Poiseuille published 15 articles ranging from brief communications to the French Academy of Sciences to extensive monographs. It is remarkable that these few expe … [Click Below for Full Description]

WILLIAM ROUSY
BALTIMORE MD to NORFOLK VA c/o U.S. SLOOP CYANE: (1841). 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. On offer is a super, fascinating stampless manuscript letter dated 'Baltimore Wednesday Evening, July 14, 1841 Dear Brother Thomas' [Rousy] Midshipman on U.S. Sloop Cyane handwritten by older brother William to his brother who appears to be a newly minted midshipman aboard the noted sloop of war Cyane. Beginning with congratulations the three [3] page and a bit well filled letter, written over a couple of days, brother William provides wisdom and advice as a good brother would along with admonitions of care regarding 'intercourse'. It is likely that the author William was himself a naval officer or at least a soldier within a command structure as his advice of hard work in attaining the highest levels of seafaring education are classic: 'Most of the Officers have had superior education I presume for they are commonly the sons of wealthy men. However it is only by superior knowledge, superior skills, and superior courage that men can arrive at great superiority of his fellows.' He goes on hoping Thomas will be interested in rising above mediocrity. Family news is interspersed but mostly the content deals with the ship, future travels and Thomas' role. The folded stampless letter has some splits in the folds and some very small loss where the seal opened but overall G+. HISTORICAL NOTES [online sources]: The second USS Cyane was a sloop-of-war in the United States Navy during the Mexican-American War. Cyane was launched 2 December 1837 by Boston Navy Yard.

"If there is one measure better calculated than another to produce that state of things so much deprecated by all true republicans, by which the rich are daily adding to their hoards and the poor sinking deeper into penury, it is an exclusive metallic currency.""Always the friend of my countrymen, never their flatterer, it becomes my duty to say to them . that there exists in the land a spirit hostile to their best interests--hostile to liberty itself. It is union that we want, not of a party for the sake of that party, but a union of the whole country for the sake of the whole country, for the defense of its interests and its honor against foreign aggression, for the defense of those principles for which our ancestors so gloriously contended."On a cold, wet day, March 4, 1841, President Harrison delivered the longest inaugural address in history. Contracting pneumonia, 31 days later he was the first president to die in office. This same-day National Intelligencer broadside Extra prints his entire 8,460-word address.
