        The Experience of George A. Spywood

      [Middleton, Massachusetts?: Charles H. Pelton, Printer?. 1843?]. Edition unknown. Small octavo. String-tied wrappers. 28pp. Stains and small nicks to the front wrap else a sound, very good copy. Autobiographical pamphlet by a Warwick, Rhode Island-born man claiming Native-American lineage (specifically that his father was a Pumham and his mother a Marshpee). The stated purpose of the pamphlet was to attempt to raise $80 to pay his debts. Spywood happily pursued the sailor's trade until after several voyages his friend, the captain, took ill and died. He later renounced his vices and took to the ministry after a vision. In 1844 he was given the pastorship of the Colored M.E. Church of Hartford, Connecticut, and took an active part in precipitating the schism of the A.M.E. Zionists from the Weslyans. It is possible that Spywood fabricated his Native American heritage for the purposes of this pamphlet, anticipating more sympathy if he hid his African ancestry. Perhaps more likely is that he was of mixed Native American and African ancestry. Carter G. Woodson references him as a Bishop in the Zionist faction in his study The Negro Church without referring to his ethnicity, and he is mentioned in several other histories of the Church. OCLC locates a single copy with the above publishing information, but this issue appears complete (collating 1-28pp., with separate wrappers) and contains no printing information. While we obviously have a vested interest in establishing the precedence of this version of the pamphlet, we strongly conclude that this copy has the feel of fulfilling the object of a mendicant pamphlet, and is likely both earlier than the 1843 version, and may indeed be unique. In any event it is rare. .

        Medical history of the expedition to the Niger during the years 1841-42, comprising an account of the fever which led to its abrupt termination

      London: John Churchill, 1843. First edition.. A few tiny chips (1/4 inch wide) missing from the outer edge of pages 217-219, otherwise a near fine copy in a very attractive binding.. Pp. viii, 287pp., frontispiece lithograph of nufi man, lithographed plate of chief's son, hand-colored lithograph of geological cross-section, full-page wood-engraved plan of highly decorated large canoe, folding engraved map at end of the lower reaches of the Niger River, later one-half brown morocco leather with 5 raised bands, red morocco spine labels lettered in gilt, over fine weave brown cloth, 8vo. This work documents a British expedition using three iron steam vessels to travel to Lokoja, at the confluence of the Niger River and Benue River, in what is now Nigeria. Of the 150 Europeans on the expedition, 42 died quickly. There were 130 fever cases but members who were of African descent suffered no deaths from illness. With such high mortality, the naval commanders called the expedition off, and withdrew to the island of Fernando Po. Other figures given are 55 deaths (out of 159) of Europeans, before the return to England in 1842. The author of this work was chief surgeon on the Albert, one of the three ships. From 4 October the handling of the vessel fell to him and the geologist Dr. William Stanger, the others being ill. M'William took the expedition to the open sea over ten days (from Wiki). According to Hogg 880, this expedition brought significant progress in the treatment of malaria. As Ebola is often mistaken for malaria, typhoid fever or dysentery, one could speculate that Ebola could have caused some of the deaths on the Niger Expedition. No ownership marks and few signs of use.

        Papers Relative to the Expedition to the River Niger

      London: Her Majesty's Stationery Office 1843, 1st Edition. () iv,164 + folding map. Very good. Folio. Recent quarter cloth and paper boards with paper label to front board. New Endpapers. Internally tight and clean with only very occasional foxing. Manuscript numbering to the upper right corner of the recto of each leaf. Some tears to coloured folding map, repaired and not affecting imagery of map. An important Parliamentary Paper detailing the expedition down the River Niger. Undertaking great expense and some danger, the purpose of the expedition was to hamper the International Slave Trade by contacting tribal chiefs along the Niger River and its tributaries. Through establishing commercial relationships with these chiefs, the Expedition hoped to prevent the trade of slaves from Africa to Brazil, Cuba, and the United States colonies. Lord John Russell says of slavery in a letter in this book: "...no fact can be more certain that [slavery] involves a waste of human life, and a sum of human misery, proceeding from year to year, without respite or intermission, to such an extent as to render the subject the most painful of any which, in the survey of the condition of mankind, it is possible to contemplate." Included are letters to and from the Abolitionist Sir T.F. Buxton and explorer and patron Sir John Barrow. An important title in the history of exploration and in the abolitionist movement, with a large coloured folding map of the "River Niger, showing the course of the Expedition under Captain Trotter in 1841."..

        An Act to amend the Law affecting transported Convicts... An Act to amend the Law affecting transported Convicts with respect to Pardons and Tickets of Leave. (Cap. VII)

      London: George Eyre and Andrew Spottiswoode, 1843. Printed bifolium, [109]-111, last blank, armorial letterhead, fine. An important Act defining the rights of convicts to property earned through their own labour. The penal system in Australia had long incorporated the Ticket-of-Leave system wherein convicts were granted the right to work for wages and so 'employ themselves for their own benefit'.The Act begins by limiting the powers of the Governor or Lieutenant-Governor (as in the case of Van Diemen's Land) to issue absolute or conditional pardons to transported felons. Remission of any sentence of transportation must henceforth be submitted to the Secretary of State for approval on behalf of the Crown. This legislation significantly reduced the power and autonomy of the Governor as final and independent arbiter of the destiny of convicts under his control.The third clause consolidates the law regarding the private property of convicts. Given that Ticket-of-Leave holders can acquire personal property, it is to be protected under the full power of the law 'notwithstanding his or her Conviction of Felony'. Thus the inalienable law of private property is formally extended to convicts who have legally acquired it. Interestingly, this clause defends the right of convicts in protecting their property if challenged in court on the basis of their past felonies. Notwithstanding, the system remains contingent upon good behaviour, for if the Ticket-of-Leave is revoked 'all property so acquired by any such Felon shall vest absolutely in Her Majesty, and shall be disposed of at the discretion of the Governor or Lieutenant Governor...'It is significant that property so defined in the Act excludes land (aside from a lease or tenancy agreement). Ownership of land was prohibited until any convict had received their pardon.

        The Steamer Yellow-Stone on the 19th April 1833. Das Dampfboot Yellow-Stone am 19th April 1833. Le Bateau a Vapeur Yellow-Stone le 19 Avril 1833.

      Ackermann London; Paris 1843 - Aquatint engraving with fine later hand-colouring by Karl Bodmer for the illustrated 'Travels in the Interior of North America between 1832-34' by Prince Maximilian Alexander Philipp Zu Wied-Neuweid, published in two volumes by Ackermann in London 1843. At the foot of each plate is the studio stamp, a blind embossed panel with the words 'C Bodmer/Direct'. Dimensions: 360 by 430mm. (14 by 17 inches). Tableau 4. Above Jefferson City, Missouri, on April 18, 1833, ten days upstream from St. Louis, the steamboat carrying Prince Maximilian and Karl Bodmer encountered an area of the river so densely packed with driftwood that it could go no further. Maximilian recorded in his journal entry for the day that they stopped for several hours, while members of the crew attempted to cut through the snags, and others on the riverbank pulled the boat along by large hawsers or ropes. Unfortunatley that afternoon, the Yellow-Stone ran aground again on a large sandbar and was forced to remain stationary, overnight. The next morning a party of traders in a flatboat from nearby Fort Osage arrived to offload part of the ship's cargo to lighten its draft. Bodmer waded ashore to make this sketch of the scene. From the illustrated 'Travels in the Interior of North America between 1832-34' by Prince Maximilian Alexander Philipp Zu Wied-Neuweid, published in two volumes by Ackermmann in London 1843. The finest work on American Indian life and the American Frontier, it is the result of an epic journey which took place at a time when the mass migrations of settlers and pioneers was about to alter irrevocably the unspoiled West. Karl Bodmer (1809-1893) was engaged by Prince Maximilian (already famed for his earlier explorations in Brazil) to provide a record of his travels among the Plains Indians of North America during 1833-34. His efforts show great versatility and technical virtuosity and give us a uniquely thorough, accomplished and detailed picture of a previously little understood (and soon to vanish) way of life. The most important part of their travels started from St Louis, whence they proceeded up the treacherous Missouri along the line of forts established by the the American Fur Company. At Bellevue they encountered their first Indians, then went on to make contact with the Sioux Tribe, learning and recording their little known ceremonial dances, their powerful pride and dignity. Transfering from the 'Yellow Stone' to another steamer the 'Assiniboine', they continued to Fort Clark, studying there the Mandan, Mintari and Crow Tribes, then the Cree and Assiniboine tribes at Fort Union, the main base of the American Fur Company. On a necessarily much smaller vessel they journeyed through the extraordinary geological scenery of that section of the Missouri to Fort Mackenzie in Montana. Established over a month there a cautious friendship developed with the fearsome Blackfoot Tribe. From this, the westernmost point reached, it was considered too dangerous to continue and the return journey downstream began. The winter brought its own difficulties and discomforts, but Bodmer was still able to execute numerous studies of villages, dances and, especially, the people, who were often intrigued and delighted by his work. The portraits are particularly notable for capturing individual personalities, as well as forming, together with Prince Maximilian's written studies, the primary accounts of what became virtually lost cultures.

EA Christian Heinrich Gilardone (1798-1874), Neffe des Malers Friedrich Müller, war ein deutscher Dichter aus der Pfalz, der neben dem Hochdeutschen auch in jiddisch-lotegorisch, der Eigensprache der pfälzischen Juden bzw. Händler schrieb und reimte. Der Pfälzer Dichter gehört zu den ganz wenigen, die in Westeuropa auch der jiddischen Literatur zugerechnet werden. Heute kann man diese Sprache nur noch bruchstückhaft verstehen, damals sprach Gilardone jedoch in der Pfalz einen großen Leserkreis damit an und selbst vielen Nicht-Juden war der Dialekt zumindest verständlich.

        One of Morse?s first monthly bills to the United States Government for Constructing the Telegraph! ? Morse?s signed retained copy, completely in his hand

      "Autograph Document Signed ?S.F.B. Morse. Sup. Elec. Mag. Tel.,? 1p, 8? x 12.5?. New York, July 10, 1843. ?Copy 4th Report / Abstract C. of exp. On acct of Labor for Elec. Mag. Telegraph / for month ending July 10th 1843.? Fine condition.Eight different employees are listed to be paid their wages. From Morse?s journals we learn that Ebenezer Chase ($82.50) was paid to supervise the covering the telegraph wire with cotton twine. His son, E.E. Chase was paid $7.50 per 6-day week to solder and cover the joints of the wire. A boy named Michael Quinn was paid $1.25 per week. Benjamin F. Taylor was paid $7 and Lewis O. Wood $6 per week to assist in the soldering and covering because of an additional machine put in operation by Chase. Gilbert Smith was working on an embossing register that would record the dots and dashes on paper tape.On March 3, 1843, ?An act to test the practicability of establishing a system of electro magnetic telegraphs by the United States? passed both Houses of Congress and was signed into law by Pres. John Tyler. It appropriated $30,000 for ?constructing a line of said electro-magnetic telegraphs, under the superintendence of Professor Samuel F.B. Morse ... and that the same shall be expended, under the direction of the Secretary of the Treasury upon the application of said Morse...? The Secretary of the Treasury was authorized to pay Morse ?and the persons employed under him...?This was Morse?s 4th monthly report, following April, May, and June 1843. When the construction of his telegraph was completed, on May 24, 1844, Morse sent the telegraph message ?What hath God wrought?? from the Supreme Court chamber in the Capitol in Washington, D.C., to the B & O Railroad Depot in Baltimore.

        Die Wiedererzeugung der Knochen nach Resektionen beim Menschen. Nebst einer tabellarischen Uebersicht aller Resektionen welche seit 1821 om k. Juliusspitale zu Würzburg gemacht worden sind.

      . Zweite Auflage. - Würzburg, Verlag von Voigt & Mocker, 1843, 8°, 26 pp., 3 Tab., 1 Doppeltafel, OBrosch.. Wichtiges Domument zur Geschichte der Knochenregneration! - "Ich gestehe, bei den meisten meiner Resektionen ebenfalls nicht an die Schonung oder Erhaltung des Periostes gedacht zu haben. Die vortrefflichen und lehrreichen Versuche , welche Herr Professor Dr. Bernhard Heine dahier an Thieren anstellte, machten mich besonders auf diesen Umstand und auf die Wichtigkeit desselben aufmerksam. Ich nahm mir daher vor, von nun an die Beinhaut bei allen einschlägigen Operationen nach Möglichkeit zu schonen. Dass sich die langen Knochen, so wie überhaupt der kompakte Theil dieser Organe in der Regel wieder erzeugen, auch wenn man sie ganz wegnimmt, scheint durch HEINE's Versuche vollkommen erwiesen zu seyn." - Kajetan von Textor, geboren, "28 Dec.1782 im Marktfleckchen Schwaben in Oberbayern, bezog 1804 die Universität Landshut, an der er, angeregt durch PHILIPP VON ALTHER'S, Vorliebe für die Chirurgie gewann und 1808zum Doctor promovirt wurde. Mit einem Staatsstipendium der Regierung reiste er zu seiner Weiteren Ausbildung in der operativen Chirurgie im Jahre 1809 nach Paris, wo ihn 'unter den dort lehrenden Chirurgen vorzüglich BOYER durch sein tiefes Wissen und die Art seines klinischen Vortrags, den er sich später zum Muster nahm, anzog. Nach 2jähr. Aufenthalt in Paris machte er eine Fussreise durch das südliche Frankreich und die Schweiz nach Pavia, wo er den Winter des Jahres 1811 hindurch den Unterricht SCARPA'S, des ersten Anatomen und Chirurgen Italiens, genoss. Darauf besah er sich die Hospitäler Italiens bis Neapel und kehrte von dort über Wien, wo er sich unter BEER'S Leitung in den Augenoperationen übte, nach München heim. Dort wurde er Secundararzt auf der chir. Abtheilung des neugebauten allgemeinen Krankenhauses unter Ober-Med.-Rath KOCH. Die in dieser Stellung und in seiner Privatpraxis von ihm ausgeführten glücklichen Operationen besonders Steinschnitte, verschafften ihm bald einen geachteten Namen in der ärztlichen Welt Münchens und wurden die Veranlassung zu seiner Ernennung zum Professor der Chirurgie Oberwundarzt am Juliusspitale zu Würzburg. Als solcher erwarb er sich bald Anerkennung bei seinen Collegen und die Verehrung und Liebe der Studirenden. Er hielt in seinen Lehrvorträgen wie am Krankenbett an der anat.-physiolog. Richtung seines ersten Lehrers PH. VON WALTHER'S fest, huldigte in Behandlung der Entzündung und der Wunden der Anwendung der Kälte und massiger Blutentziehung. In seiner operativen Thätigkeit dem conservativen Elemente volle Rechnung tragend, ging er vielfach schöpferisch umgestaltend neue Wege. So suchte er die Lappen-Amputation mit neuen Verbesserungen in ihre alten Rechte wieder einzusetzen, gab den Impuls zur Wiederaufnahme der so gefürchteten Exarticulationen und zur Vornahme der Resectionen bei Caries, besonders der Gelenkenden und bei complicirten Beinbrüchen. Er hat sich für Vornahme der Resection des von seinem Schüler BERNHARD HEINE erfundenen Osteotoms zuerst bedient und dasselbe in die operative Praxis eingeführt. Nachdem Textor neben seinem genialen Collegen SCHOENLEIN und dem als Geburtshelfer rühmlichst bekannten D'OUTREPONT seine besten Kräfte der Hebung der medicinsichen Facultät Würzburgs eine Reihe von 16 Jahren hindurch gewidmet hatte und diese auch durch das Zusammenwirken so ausgezeichneter Lehrkräfte einen früher nie erreichten Ruhm erlangt hatte, wurde er im Herbst 1832, gleichzeitig mit SCHOENLEIN und einer Anzahl hervorragender med. und jurid. Professoren, seiner Lehrstelle zu Würzburg enthoben und als Director an die chirurgische Schule zu Landshut versetzt. Ohne dass gegen den biederen, jeder politischen Thätigkeit fernstehenden Textor oder gegen einen anderen seiner mit ihm enthobenen Collegen der geringste Verdacht von demagogischen Neigungen vorlag, war der gesellige Verkehr, in welchem die Mitglieder der Universität mit dem gebildeten Theile der Würzburger Bürgerschaft, welche ein freieres constitutionelles Leben anstrebte, standen, für das damalige reactions-lustige bayer. Ministerium Grund genug zu dieser Massregel, welche für lange Zeit die Blüthe der Universität zerstörte. Im Spätherbst 1834 wurde Textor wieder zu Würzburg in sein Lehramt eingesetzt, dem er mit neuer Lust gerecht wurde. Meister in der Führung des Osteotoms, machte er glückliche Resectionen in grosser Zahl an allen Theilen des menschlichen Knochengerüstes und andere bedeutende Operationen, so die Exarticulatio femoris in mehreren Fällen. Im Jahre 1835 erschienen auch seine "Grundzüge zur Lehre der chirurgischen Operationen, welche mit bewaffneter Hand unternommen werden" (Würzburg, 8.). Noch in voller Rüstigkeit des Körpers und Frische des Geistes, nach kaum erreichtem 70. Lebensjahre, ward er unerwartet im Frühjahr 1853 der Stelle des Oberwundarztes des Juliusspitals und Professor der chirurgischen Klinik enthoben. Noch hielt er aber bis zu seinem 7. Aug. 1860 erfolgten Tode theoretische Vorlesungen über Chirurgie und leitete mit seinem Sohne KARL, der neben ihm als a. o. Prof. lehrte, bis in seine letzten Tage die Operationsübungen der Studirenden. Die Liebe, welche er bei den letzteren genoss, fand in den Festlichkeiten, welche dieselben zu seinem 50jähr. Dr.-Jubil., 21. Juni 1858, veranstalteten, vollen Ausdruck. Ausser seiner Operationslehre veröffentlichte er eine Uebersetzung von BOYER'S Chirurgie (1818-27; 2. Aufl. 1834-41) und mehrere Monographieen: " Ueber Wiedererzeugung der Knochen nach Resectionen beim Menschen. Programm beim Antritt des Rectorats 1842" (Würzburg, 4.) - " Ueber die Nichtnothwendigkeit der Trepanation bei Schädeleindrücken. Als Programm zum Vorlese-Catalog für das Sommersemester 1847" (Ib., 4.). Er gab auch den "Neuen Chiron, eine Zeitschrift für Chirurgie und Geburtshilfe" (2 Bde., Sulzbach 1822). heraus; sie ging aus Mangel an Mitarbeitern bald ein."

Contemporary polished green gold-tooled calf, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. Rebacked in green cloth with the original backstrip laid down.

      Bibl. of Australian lit. III, p. 305; Boom & Rooseboom (eds.), A new art: photography in the 19th century, B265; Ferguson 12251. First edition, in the original French, of Marcet's fictional narrative of life in Queensland, remarkably illustrated with mounted photomechanical reproductions of drawings made by the fine but short-lived woodburytype process. Edouard Marcet was a Swiss settler in Queensland, who also published two factual accounts of life in the colony. The present work includes descriptions and illustrations of dramatic encounters between settlers and the aborginal people. It further describes Queensland's natural history, including the platypus, which is shown in two illustrations. Several of the drawings reproduced are signed by the artists: G. Liquier, perhaps meaning the French artist Gabriel Liquier (1843-1887), later known for his caricatures, and the Swiss landscape artist Etienne Duval (1824-1914). A Swedish translation, adapted for children, was published in 1870.In very good condition, with only some spotting. Binding expertly rebacked and with some scratches and discolouration, but otherwise also very good. A fascinating fictional account of life in Queensland, illustrated by drawings reproduced by the remarkable woodburytype process.
