        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM ARTIST THOMAS DOUGHTY TO JOHN P. RIDNER, REGARDING A SHIPMENT OF PAINTINGS]

      London. July 17, 1845.. [1]p. plus integral address leaf. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old fold lines, minor soiling. Near fine. American artist Thomas Doughty writes to John P. Ridner, a New York City mahogany merchant and a manager of the American Art Union. In his letter Doughty discusses a shipment of paintings he is sending. Doughty (1793-1856) was a landscape painter of the Hudson River School. He writes: "I wrote to you some time since to promise you that I should forward to your care a box containing a couple of pictures for James Rabb, Esq. of New Orleans. I shall ship the pictures through Hamden & Co. from Liverpool in the steamer of the 4th August next. My object in addressing this note to you is that in case you see Mr. Rabb if you will have the kindness to inform him of that fact, as he might wish to have the pictures insur'd. O presume he is not now in N. Orleans and if I were to direct a letter to him at that place he would not get it in time, and the presumption is that he will be in New York prior to the rec't of this letter. In case he is and you should know if his whereabouts, will you have the kindness to drop him a line? With best wishes for your prosperity, I remain very truly your friend, Ths. Doughty."

        Erfahrungen und Abhandlungen im Gebiete der Chirurgie und Augenheilkunde.

      Erlangen. Enke. 1845.. 8°. IV., 162 S., 4 lithogr. Tafeln. Broschur.. Erste und einzige Ausgabe. - Selten. - Hirsch Bd. III, S. 104: Karl Friedrich Hecker (1812-1878), als Arzt in Freiburg/Breisgau tätig, wurde in Eichtersheim/Baden geboren. Er ist der jüngere Bruder des badischen Revolutionärs Friedrich Karl Franz. Er studierte von 1830 an in Heidelberg Medizin, bestand 1835 die Staatsprüfung und machte zu seiner weiteren Ausbildung Reisen nach München und Paris. 1836 habilitierte er sich als Docent für Chirurgie und Augenheilkunde an der Universität Freiburg mit einer Schrift über "Die Indicationen der Steinzertrümmerungsmethode" und wurde 1839 zum Prof. e.o. ernannt. Nach dem Tod von Karl Joseph beck hielt er interimistisch, in Gemeinschaft mit Ign. Schwörer, die chirurgischen Vorlesungen und assistierte in der Klinik. "Während er mit Stromeyer, der 1842 die Leitung der chirurgischen Klinik übernommen hatte, wissenschaftlich im besten Einvernehmen wirkte, trennte sie die verschiedene politische Anschauung. Besonders trat dieser dieser Gegensatz im Jahre 1848 hervor, in welchem H.'s oben genannter Bruder eine so hervorragende Rolle spielte. Nach Stromeyer's Berufung und Uebersiedlung nach Kiel 1848 übernahm H., zunächst provisorisch, die Leitung der Klinik. Dieses Provisorium dauerte, hauptsächlich aus politischen Gründen, eine Reihe von Jahren und erst 1855 wurde er Prof. ord. und definitiver Director der Klinik. Nach langjährigem Leiden fand seine Lehrtätigkeit dadurch ein Ende, dass er sich im Jahre 1871, durch sein Asthma am anhaltenden Sprechen verhindert, pensionieren lassen musste. Sein Tod erfolgte jedoch an acuter Miliartuberculose." - Inhalt: Das pyämische Wundfieber (Febris traumatico-pyaemica) (S. 1-58); Eine eigenthümliche, die Erhebung des Armes hindernde Lageveränderung des Schulterblattes (S. 59-71 mit 1 lithogr.

        Lecons sur les maladies de la peau professees a l' ecole de medecine de Paris..

      . Paris, Labe, (1845)-1856, Groß-Folio (54 x 36 cm), I Bl., 233, 1 Bl., mit 60 feinen handcol. Punktiermanier-Farbkupferstiche, in frischen Bögen wie ausgeliefert, erster Lieferungsumschlag vorhanden.. Der grosse Cazenave - ein Meisterwerk, das schönste Bilderwerk der Dermatologie! - Erste Ausgabe dieser ungewöhlichen schönen und wohl seltensten der großen französischen Ikonografien der Hautkrankheiten. Während der berühmte Atlas von Alibert öfter angeboten wird, ist das vorliegende Werk ein rares Cimelium. In Lieferungen über 12 Jahre erschienen, sind vollständige Exemplare sehr selten - Cazenave bringt nach der Systematik von Alibert, Plenck, Willan, Biett und Cazenave 60 (!) Bilder von Hautkrankheiten und Syphilis, darunter auch ein schönes Bild eines 'Lupus erythemateux'. Diese Krankheit z.B. beschrieb Cazenave erstmals in seinem 'Abrege' von 1838 und benannte ihn 1851 in seinen 'Annales'. - Nach Richter ist das Werk erst 1856 vollständig erschienen. Die Bilder sind von Bocourt (43) und Jadin (2) gezeichnet und in Punktiermanier in Kupfer gestochen, in bräunlicher Farbe gedruckt und nachkoloriert. Goldschmid erwähnt einen Gerard als Coloristen. Die Bilder sind in Zeichnung und Farbe durchweg naturwahr und von großer künstlerischer Wirkung! - Goldschmid hält 'den großen Cazenave' für 'eines der besten und schönsten der uns bekannten' Werke. - "In Frankreich am Hospital Saint Louis folgt Willans Lehren der Nachfolger Jean Aliberts (1766-1837), der Schweizer Laurent Theodore Biett (1781-1840), der nordische, sachliche Schüler und Gegenpol des lebhaften, geistvollen Südfranzosen. - Biett hatte bei seinem Besuche in England Willans Lehren kennengelernt. Bietts Vorlesungen wurden von seinem Schüler und späteren Nachfolger P.L.A. Cazenave (1795-1877) zusammen mit H.E. Schedel in dem "Abrege pratique des maladies de la peau" (1828) in einem Buche niedergelegt. - Wie Willan unterscheidet Biett 8 Ordnungen, denen er aber noch weitere 7 von Krankheiten zufügt, die ihr Wesen in keine der oben genannten Ordnungen bringen läßt, nämlich: Lupus, Pellagra, Bouton d' Aleppo, Syphilides, Purpura, Elephantiasis des Arabes, Keloide. - Goldschmid (176) considered Cazenave's atlas of 60 handcoloured plates one of the best and most beautiful he knew, comparing it with Cruveilhier's masterpiece of pathological anatomy of the same period. The skilfully rendered plates, very naturalistic in their drawing and colouring, are really all equally worth of note, but Goldschmid singles out plates showing erythema, chronic eczema, pemphigus chronicus, impetigo, psoriasis, rupia syph, acne, favus, elephantiasis and lupus. Cazenave was among the first to classify skin diseases on an anatomical basis. He gave classic descriptions of pemphigus foliaceus, known as "Cazenave's disease", and of lupus erythematosus or "Cazenave's lupus", and founded the first journal devoted entirely to dermatology. - Ehring, p.154; Schönfeld, p.44 - Rare. Not in Waller, Osler or Reynolds.

      . Wien, Carl Gerold, 1845, 8°, 22, 429 pp., feiner Pappband im Stil der Zeit mit eingebundenem original Broschurdeckblatt.. BEGRÜNDUNG EINER PSYCHOSOMATIOSCHEN MEDIZIN Erste Ausgabe dieses klassischen Textes der modernen Seelenheilkunde, daß "aus einem Guss eine komplette medizinische Psychologie enthält, eine abgerundete Psychopathologie, eine in die Tiefe gehende Psychotherapie ... " W.Creutz - "Um gegen die herrschenden realistische Richtung in der Medicin anzukämpfen, eröffnete er 1844 in der Universität Vorträge über ärztliche Seelenkunde, die als Lehrbuch .. erschienen" Hirsch - So entstand ein fundamentales Werk, das zugleich das erste in Österreich erschienene Lehrbuch auf diesem Gebiet darstellt- Sein programmatisches Buch wurde später auch in Englische (1847), Französische, Holländische und Russische Übersetzt. - - "Ernst von Feuchtersleben (1806-1849) had a clear conception of a total personality and considered mental diseases-diseases of personality-in the same manner as doses the psychiatry of the twentieth century for the most part ... Feuchtersleben offered a classification which was of no consequence, but he stressed more than anyone else the importance of psychotherapy for mental disease. He thought it the most logical method of treatment, one which would reconstruct some of the mental deviations ... Feuchtersleben came closer than any one of the 'pure psychologists' of the first half of the (nineteenth) century to the solution of the problem of how mental diseases develops and affects personality, and to the conclusion of the great importance of psychotherapy. "Zilboorg & Henry, pp.477-478 - So "this book was altogether new departure in psychiatric writing. He not only introduced into psychiatry a new standard and a new methodology but also a number of new terms" as psychosis, psychiatrics, and psychopathology. - Hunter-Macalpine, pp.951-954 - It was also after the publication of this book that the terms "amnesia", or total lost of meory, "hypermnesia" or heightened memory, and "dysmnesia" or morbidly altered memory came to be generally adopted. - "Von Feuchtersleben book contains perhaps a half dozen paragraphs on the Ego" Altschule, Roots of Modern Psychiatry, p.31 - - Included in his book (pp.7-75) is a survey of the history of psychiatry from the earliest time to the time of Heinroth. - - Garrison & Morton No.4929.1; Norman 793

        CATALOGUE DE LIVRES FRANÇAIS, ANGLAIS, ALLEMANDS, ESPAGNOLS, GRECS ET LATINS, ITALIENS, PORTUGAIS, ORIENTAUX, ETC. . SUIVI DE PRIX COURANTS

      Hector Bossange, Maison de Commission, Paris 1845 - thick 8vo. contemporary half morocco, top edge gilt. (xvi), 984 pages. A massive catalogue of 984 pages, the vast bulk of which (pp.1-802) is devoted to books as noted in the title. Some of this is very interesting, especially the section on the arts and architecture, which includes some rare and expensive books. The second part is of even more interest as it contains sections on maps, globes and spheres, astronomical instruments, and "machines typographiques" (with lithographic illustrations of the Stanhope Press, the Columbian Press, the Presse Française and the Machine à Glacier). This is followed by eight leaves of type specimens and "Les Articles pour la Reliure" which includes four folding plates of shiny glazed black paper printed in gold showing 'Fers a Doreur.' The two final plates are more fers a doreur and include two fully blocked spines, a fully blocked cover and other stamps, rolls and lines. These are in perfect condition and have great appeal as well as obvious documentary value for historians of 1840s binding. The letterpress lists also include skins for binding with prices. The final leaf of this section is Daguerreotypes, both full apparatus and plates. Contemporary bookplates of the Franklin Library of Boston and the later 19th century bookplate of the Lawrence Public Library.

Very slight age toning to leafs, otherwise in very good condition, a most pleasing and unique volume.The engineer's notes begin with 5 stellar pre-construction drawings of Ireland's Boyne Viaduct dated November 1845, illustrating the original ironworks which have since been removed, and complete with weights and measurements, 5 pages. [Construction on the railway bridge began eight years later in 1853 and was completed in 1855. The original iron spans were wide enough to carry two tracks. When the bridge was refurbished in the 1930s, new steel girders replaced the iron structure.] He also sketches a proposal for the Newton Cap Viaduct in Bishop Auckland, with further notes on its stone masonry and brick work, as well the contractor's obligations, altogether 10 pages, most likely penned between 1846-47. With measurements for its 11 pillars, each spanning 60 feet, he suggests a total length of the wall being 964 feet; upon completion it measured 828 feet. Following is an itemized list of material and labour costs such as timber, wrought iron, lead, fencing, arch sheeting, excavation of the river, and two culverts. [Built by the North Eastern Railway across the valley of the River Wear, construction began in 1854, and it saw its first freight on 19th August 1856.] Two margin annotations refer to "Midland Great Western Railway, contract No. 1 Dublin Terminus" suggesting his involvement in another project perhaps at or near the same time. On 1 June 1847 he notes his arrival in Dumfries to work for the Glasgow Dumfries & Carlisle Railway, a company in Scotland, which built and ran what is now known as the Glasgow South Western Line. The line was authorised on 13 August 1846 and was constructed between then and 1850. The volume does not indicate his work with the latter mentioned railway company, although it would have ended by early 1849. Surviving a voyage on an Irish immigrant ship which had sailed from Liverpool, on 27 August 1849 Dryson arrived in New York. He settled in New Rochelle, Westchester County. Quickly being recognized as an astute and skilled architect and civil engineer, immediately following the extension of the railroad through Pelhamville, on 4 August 1851 Bryson was commissioned to survey the area for development. [His map was filed in the office of the Register of Westchester County and has been referenced in a wide variety of documentation over the years referencing homes and lots in North Pelham. Bryson also created the development map entitled "Map of Prospect Hill Village, Town of Pelham, Westchester County, New York" dated August 11, 1852.] Dryson's first note made in this journal when on American soil reads, "Thursday Sept. 4th 1856 Left New Rochelle N.Y. arrived in Chicago Sunday morning Sept. 7th 1856." Approximately 12 pages are devoted to his endeavours in Chicago playing an integral role in a massive infrastructure project for 4 years - the designing and construction of Chicago's storm and sewer drain system. Precise calculations of materials and measurements are made, identifying specific locations such as the corner of Madison Street and South Morgan, Fulton Street inthe River District, Halsted & Division Streets which were "often soaking in water." Mixing compounds, planning sidewalk grades, making junction and sand basin pipes, calculating costs and procuring materials from suppliers in neighbouring states such as bricks, mortar, cement, and sand, these are but some of the tasks outlined in notes leading up to 30 August 1860. [Chicago was built in a low-lying area subject to flooding. To avoid disaster, the city built a stormwater conveyance system, beginning in 1856. In the earliest phase, sewage pipes were laid across the city above ground, to use gravity to move the waste. In 1856 city council decided that the entire city should be elevated four to five feet by using a newly available jacking-up process. In one instance, the 5-story Brigg?'s Hotel, weighing 22,000 tons, was lifted while it continued to operate. Observing that such a thing could never have happened in Europe, British historian Paul Johnson cites this astounding feat as a dramatic example of American determination and ingenuity: based on the conviction that anything material is possible.] With few exceptions the remaining pages of the volume consist of engineering calculations and cost figures, dispersed throughout, mostly relating to the aforementioned projects. These include American standard weights and measurements, geometrical equations, procedures for excavating, making marble cement and blasting marble, stone masonry, preparing coloured dyes, some formulae, market rates for various types of timber, and much more. On four pages he jots down medicinal remedies & miscellanea. One page consists of notes on beautifying and painting sundials. Several clippings of engineering interest are also pasted within the notes. Born in Edinburgh 31 December 1818, William Edward Bryson (1818-1876) was an architect and civil engineer, having received his education at the Academy of Design in Dublin. In Ireland he was engaged in the construction of the Dublin and Mullingar Railroad, and then in Scotland, with the Dumfries and Glasgow Railroad. A civil engineer 31 years of age, on 27 August 1849 he arrived and immigrated to the United States, pursuing his profession in New York City for a time before settling in the nearby village of New Rochelle circa 1850. There he was engaged in laying out several towns in Westchester County. In 1851 Bryson conducted important surveys of Pelhamville and its environs for development, making maps which are still referenced today. In 1856, as confirmed by his own manuscript note in the journal, Dryson moved to Chicago, soon to be employed by the Board of Water and Sewage Commissioners, an enormous project which was then just beginning. He worked tirelessly at this for seven years, and during this period also published several papers in the Journal of the Franklin Institute including the "Tables on the Strength of Cast Iron, Wrought Iron and Timber Pillars." In 1863 he was invited by General R. G. Delafield to take charge of the construction of the Barbette Battery at Fort Hamilton in the New York Harbor. He then found employment and a great number of development projects to engage in, with Chicago's Board of Public Works, the first being the construction of the Washington Street Tunnel (the first traffic tunnel under the Chicago River, completed in 1869). He was also involved with the LaSalle Street tunnel, the New Lake tunnel, a superstructure for water works, and foundations for the West Side Pumping Works. During this last assignment he contracted a fatal cold. Dryson was a member of the Civil Engineers' Club of the Northwest, founded in 1869 to draw together engineers of all kinds, but emphasized the discipline that ruled the region - rail. . Very Good.

        An original design for porcelain

      [Paris, 1845. Pen, ink, and watercolour. Good condition apart from some overall light foxing and slight discolouration of the paper due to age. A rare example of an original watercolour design for porcelain, by the Samson factory of Paris. This finished design was intended as a reference source from which the porcelain painters could work, using the design as a guide for the colours and image to be transformed from paper into fine porcelain. The French porcelain manufactory of Samson & Cie. was established by "Edmé Samson (b. Paris, 1810; d. Paris, 1891) at 7, Rue Vendôme (later Rue Béranger) in Paris. The intention of the firm was to reproduce ceramics from museums and private collections, and it claimed that all such reproductions would be distinctly marked to avoid confusion with the originals. In 1864, the factory was moved to Montreuil by Samson's son, Emile Samson (1837-1913). The range of wares included copies of 18th-century porcelain from such factories as Sèvres, Chelsea, Meissen and Derby, Chinese export-wares, especially armorial wares decorated with famille rose colours and mugs decorated with the Fitzhugh pattern, Delftware, Iznikware, maiolica and faience."

        Partially colored lithograph printed in 1845 by Nathaniel Currier, later of Currier and Ives, commemorating George Washington?s journey to New York City for the first presidential inauguration

      "Partly colored lithograph, 1 page, framed to 12.5? x 16.5?, lithograph 9.5? x 13.5? showing. New York, New York, 1845. Frame in fair condition, lithograph very fine condition. The lithograph, printed in 1845, is titled ?Washington?s Reception by the Ladies, on Passing the Bridge at Trenton, N.J. April 1789, on His Way to New York to be Inaugurated First President of the United States?. Draped across the archway in the foreground is a banner that reads, in whole, ?The Defender of the Mothers will be... The Protector of the Daughters.? On the midsection of the banner is written ?Battle of Trenton Dec. 26th 1776.? The eagle, perched on top of the archway has another strand of cloth in its mouth, ?Princeton? and ?Monmouth?, the two other significant Revolutionary War battles, which took place in New Jersey. The lithograph details Washington, upon a white horse, wearing a blue coat and tipping his hat in recognition of the crowd. Above the archway sits an eagle flanked by four American flags, each with only twenty-seven stars. At the time of the printing, Texas had yet to become the twenty-eighth state until December 29, 1845. The original thirteen states are represented above the eagle. Currier printed this lithograph as a sole proprietor at his headquarters on Spruce Street, in New York City, five years before James Ives came to work for him. Currier originally was apprenticed to the Boston printing firm of the Pendleton?s. Then, in 1833, he worked for M. E. D. Brown in Philadelphia. The next year, he moved to New York City, where he worked at several failed printing firms until venturing out and beginning his own in 1835. In 1850 Ives came to work for Currier as a bookkeeper. His talents as a marketer and businessman grew the company even more, and by 1857 he was made a full time partner, thus changing the name to the famous ?Currier and Ives?. "

        THE CHIMES

      1845. A Goblin Story of Some Bells that Rang an Old Year out and a New Year in. New-York: Harper & Brothers, 1845. Inside cover ads dated Feb 1845 (front) and Dec 1844 (rear). Original printed wrappers. First American Edition (? -- precedence between this and E. Winchester's edition is unknown, as both were quickly and cheaply produced, bound in wrappers without illustrations). Podeschi lists the Harper edition first, but that does not necessarily mean it was published first; Podeschi also notes that the Winchester edition "was probably published early in 1845," with no similar note regarding Harper. (There was also an 1845-dated cloth-bound edition published by Carey & Hart of Philadelphia, complete with illustrations adapted from the London edition -- but it would have taken C&H much longer to produce this edition than it did Harper or Winchester.)~This is a near-fine copy, with very minor fraying along the wrapper's edge (there is a contemporary Bowery bookseller's small label on the front cover). As with Gimbel's second copy, there is no "Book­hout.SC." printed within the title page design. Quite remarkable condition for a very scarce, fragile book. Podeschi A87; Wilkins p. 38.

        ORNITHOLOGIE) MANUEL DE L&#146;ORNITHOLOGISTE PREPARATEUR contenant la collection complète des oiseaux du dauphiné.

      - Grenoble, Chez H. Bouteille, 1845. In-8 demi-chagrin fauve récent, dos à nerfs, auteur et titre dorés, (36pp+72pl.). Malgré quelques rousseurs normales pour la période, il s&#146;agit d&#146;un BEL EXEMPLAIRE bien complet des 72 lithographies d'après Cassien représentant 300 sujets; quelques-unes sont plus marquées mais dans l&#146;ensemble les illustrations sont superbes. Très RARE EDITION parue 2 ans après l&#146;ornithologie originale, contenant des extraits du texte mais la totalité des illustrations. Il se subdivise de la manière suivante:- notions préliminaires, définitions,- anatomie et physiologie,- taxidermie,- table alphabétique des noms d&#146;oiseaux dessinés,- lithographies.Des vignettes ont été rajoutées sous quelques planches avec les noms d&#146;oiseaux.Célèbre illustrateur, Victor Cassien est entré dans l&#146;histoire pour le fameux "Album du Dauphiné" , où la finesse du trait, l&#146;expressivité et un certain romantisme ont contribué à en faire le plus célèbre ouvrage illustré dauphinois; son talent est au moins équivalent ici, le dessin très fin et expressif et la lithographie parfaite.Hippolyte Bouteille était pharmacien de formation et devint conservateur du muséum d&#146;histoire naturelle de Grenoble. Il créa la société d&#146;acclimatation des Alpes et le jardin d&#146;acclimatation de Grenoble.Cet ouvrage ne figure pas dans Maignien ni dans la vente Perrin.
