        The Medical Botanist, and Expositor of Diseases and Remedies. in Two Volumes. Volume First - in Six Parts; Volume Second. The Mother's Guide.

      Castile, N.Y.: Published by the Author, 1846. First Edition. Hard Cover. Good/No Jacket. First volume fair, second volume good. Significant loss of leather from vol. 1 spine, staining and light foxing throughout vol. 1 with minor pencil notes in front & end matter, vol. 2 moderately foxed throughout, vol. 2 boards rubbed. 1846 Hard Cover. Complete in two volumes. iv, 255, [1]; xi, 111, [1] pp. An important and uncommon work on botanical medicine, the second volume of which is particularly scarce (see below). Hoolihan 685, S-254.4: 'A greatly expanded version of The family medical adviser in which Cobb takes into account various elements of the health reform movement, e.g., dress reform, hydropathy, phrenology, etc. The number of medicinal plants described in the first part has increased to 213 from the 113 provided in his 1828 work. The second volume described on the title-page (The Mother's guide) was apparently never published... This conclusion was proved erroneous when in January 2004 we acquired a copy of the second volume. Cobb begins the Mother's guide with a description 'of those diseases and conditions which afflict females before marriage' and their botanic treatment. He briefly describes the female organs of generation; and although ignoring the act of copulation, describes conception, which he maintains takes place in the ovaries... Cobb is concerned about the transmission of moral and physical characteristics from parents to their children, stressing that 'exercising the reasoning faculties' before conception results in a corresponding 'increased development in the offspring'; just as 'acts of devotion would increase veneration, &c.' He adds, 'it is well understood, that a firm constitution, and a well organized body in parents, are favorable to the health and physical ability of the offspring.' Cobb briefly describes the 'signs of conception'; abortion and miscarriage; and the stages of pregnancy. He devotes considerable attention, however, to labor and its complications. Cobb makes frequent reference to the practice [of] his fellow botanics Thomas Hersey and Elisha Smith, as well as to the obstetrical and gynecological texts of regular school authors such as Thomas Denman, William P. Dewees, Robert Gooch and N.C. Chailly-Honore. Throughout his text Cobb refers the reader to related topics and page numbers in his first volume, indicating that it was off the press (or at least in page proofs) at the time he was writing this second volume.'

      An original pen & ink drawing by Edward lear, taken from 'A Book of Nonsense,' first published in 1846. This drawing has been examined and fully authenticated as Lear's work by the late Vivien Noakes, the world expert on Edward Lear. The drawing accompanies the limerick, 'There was an old personof Dover.' It is drawn on silk, or possibly fine rag paper, and then laid on paper for support. It was drawn, almost certainly for presentation to friends, and would originally have been part of a group of drawings bound in book form, probably at the time of its making in the early 1860's. There is some staining and browning, but otherwise the drawing is in excellent condition. The drawing is mounted on acid free card and is supplied with a copy of the letter of authentification from Vivien Noakes. Mount sixe: 24.7 x 30.5 cm.Original 'Nonsense' drawings by Lear are exceedingly rare. This item is subject to vat.

        Riviere Derwent Pres De Richemont (Ile Van-Diemen)..

      Paris: circa, 1846. Hand coloured lithograph, 190 x 300 mm. Original lithograph from Dumont d'Urville's "Voyage au Pole Sud", showing the Derwent River, in the foreground is a coach-and-four going at full speed, at this time coaches were running between Hobart and New Norfolk. Craig notes that this is one of the first pictures of coaches.Dumont d'Urville's instruction from King Louis-Philippe were to explore the South Pole. Up to this time France had taken no part in Antarctic discovery which had been dominated by the English. Dumont d'Urville left Toulon on September 7, 1837 with two ships, the "Astrolabe" and the "Zelee", on a voyage that was to become dogged by mishap and illness. The official artist Ernest Auguste Goupil died in Hobart whilst the expedition was there in April 1840. Le Breton (1818-1866) who was on the voyage as assistant surgeon, replaced Goupil as official artist as his considerable abilities as an artist had come to the attention of the commander of the expedition. Le Breton resigned from his medical functions in 1848 and transferred to the Department of Maps and Charts in Paris where he remained until his death on 30 August 1866.

Also, the Apocrypha....Embellished with sixteen hundred historical engravings by J.A. Adams, more than fourteen hundred of which are from original designs by J.G. Chapman.

      New York: Harper & Brothers Folio (34 cm, 13.4"). Frontis., add. engr. t.-p., [6], 844, [2], 128, [6], frontis., add. engr. t.-p., [2], 256, 3, [1], 8, 14, 34 pp.; illus.. 1846 When the Harper firm published The Illuminated Bible near the midpoint of the 19th century, the company produced one of the most elaborate and costly American Bibles to that time. O'Callaghan says, "This work was originally announced in 1843, and was issued in 54 numbers at 25 cents each. J.A. Adams, the engraver, is credited with having taken the first electrotype in America from a woodcut. Many in this Bible are so done. Artists were engaged for more than six years in the preparation of the designs and engravings . . . at a cost of over $20,000." The title's use of the word "illuminated" refers not (as usual) to decoration in gold, but both to the huge number of illustrations and to the fact that the half-titles, the title-leaves, and the presentation and birth, death, and marriage leaves are printed using colored inks. Concerning the illustrations, Frank Weitenkampf wrote in The Boston Public Library Quarterly (July, 1958, pp. 154–57): "The engravings after Chapman carefully reproduced the prim line-work method of the Englishman Bewick, introduced here by Alexander Anderson. . . . [T]his Harper publication was a remarkable production for its time and place, and retains its importance in the annals of American book-making. W.J. Linton, noted wood-engraver and author, knew ‘no other book like this, so good, so perfect in all it undertakes.'" Binding, signed: Contemporary red morocco, cover panels deeply beveled, inside bevel framed in wide gilt roll with gilt-stamped corner decorations, spine gilt extra, turn-ins with beautiful, bright gilt rolls. Signed by Cook & Somerville of New York. Provenance: Front cover gilt-stamped "Mary Van Horne Clarkson"; inscriptions of several members of the Van Horne Clarkson family, mostly in New York. Binding as above, joints and extremities rubbed, covers with scrapes and discolorations but gilt still bright; repair to foot of front cover joint (hinged in place with appropriate papers; exterior secured with toned tissue), abraded leather consolidated. As might well be expected of such a massive volume, hinges and joints are tender. Occasional very faint spotting, pages generally clean, with family register leaves unused. Last (index) leaf with tear from inner margin extending into text, repaired with long-fiber tissue and wheat starch paste. => In its signed binding, this is an interesting example of a very impressive production.

[= Passover Haggadah in Hebrew with Marathi translation] Translated into Marathi and published by Haim Joseph Hallegua. (Chaim Yosef Chaligoa) of Cochin, India. Passover Haggadah for the Bene Israel community in India. This is the first printed Indian Haggadah, the first illustrated Indian Haggadah; the first Haggada in Marathi, and the first Haggadah according to the traditions of the Bene Israel community. Hebrew and Marathi on facing pages. The depiction of Moshe and Aharon on the title page is based on the illustration in the Amsterdam 1712 edition. With 13 vignettes depicting the 13 simanim, the stages, of the seder, "kadesh", "urchatz" etc. The final illustration displays the constituent ritual elements of the Seder plate, all represented in a distinctly Indian style. The Marathi speaking Jews of India known as the Bene Israel ("Children of Israel) had for millennia maintained the basic elements of Judaism (circumcision, dietary laws, the Sabbath, certain fasts and festivals, and the recitation of Shema Yisrael), despite their near-total isolation from the rest of world Jewry. When they began to settle in Bombay toward the end of the eighteenth century, their first encounter with normative Judaism occurred through contact with the Cochin Jews of the Malabar coast. Eager now to assimilate the many elements of postbiblical rabbinic Judaism that had been lost to them, they built their first synagogue in Bombay in 1796. The subsequent arrival in the city of Jews from Cochin and from the oriental countries enriched their opportunities for Jewish learning and stimulated a religious revival of which the Haggadah of 1846 is but one example.

        Manuscript on paper, in English. "Description of Upper California.

      [Monterey? Folio (31 cm; 12.25"). [14] ff. (2 ff. wrappers, 2 ff. blanks, 10 ff. of text).. ca. 1846] The original manuscript of this 1828 report by José Bandini resides in the National Archive of Mexico and a near contemporary copy rests in the Cowan Collection of the Bancroft Library; both, of course, are in Spanish. Bandini, a native of Andulacia, Spain, who settled in California in about 1818, was a cultured, well-educated, and forward-thinking leader of the Californios, and he seems to have prepared his well-written and detailed essay for the new republican authorities in Mexico City in hopes of convincing them to aid the territory to grow and prosper, to the benefit of the Californios and the Mexican nation as well. He was also the father of Juan Bandini, of whom more later. The cataloguer at the Bancroft Library describes their Spanish-language manuscript copy in these terms: "Draft of report describing Alta California, its government, presidios, missions, Indians, settlements, ports, trade, roads, revenue, flora and fauna, and topography. With recommendations for its future development, notably the opening of the port of => San Diego to foreign vessels." The contents are clearly the same in this present translation, which was made probably between 1838 and 1846 from one of a few Spanish-language manuscript copies of the Bandini report that circulated in California in the 1830s and 1840s. Who made the translation is not known, but it is highly likely that it was made for Thomas Larkin (1802–58), an early-arrived American settler in Alta California (April 1832), a signer of the original California constitution, and the first and only U.S consul to the California Republic. The information in Bandini's report would have been powerful ammunition in Larkin's reports to Washington encouraging American interest in California and its settlement by Anglo-Americans. Despite the importance of the information contained in Bandini's account of California in the period to ca. 1830, it remained unpublished until 1951, when the Friends of the Bancroft Library published a transcription of the Spanish and a translation into English. => This present translation remains unpublished still. Curiously, while Hubert Howe Bancroft was able to track down and acquired the manuscript history of California written by José Bandini's son Juan ("Apuntes para la historia de la Alta California desde el ano de su fundacion en 1769 hasta el ano de 1845"), he betrays no knowledge in his own history of California of José's work.

Orr, from designs by H. K. Browne]. New York: Wiley and Putnam [(beginning with the 18th part:) John Wiley], 1846-1848. Twenty monthly parts in nineteen, in the original brownish-grey wrappers printed in black. First American Edition in the original parts. The English parts ran from October 1846 through April 1848, and each Wiley & Putnam part was issued immediately after its English counterpart. As Wilkins observes, "At the bottom of the first page of each number was printed 'The Illustrations for this Number will be given with the Next,' the text probably being set in type as soon as the English number was received and printed at once without waiting for the engraving of the plates for that number, so that the plates were always one number behind the text. The Phiz plates were redrawn and engraved on wood by J. W. Orr, and it is remarkable how closely the spirit of the original etchings was reproduced in wood engravings." The Wiley & Putnam parts contain a total of 36 plates (two in each part except for the first); not included were the four plates that accompanied the English 19/20th part, because of the one-month lag in reproducing the engravings . Part I includes a title page, and the final part includes the other preliminaries necessary to facilitate the binding of the parts into two volumes (38 plates are listed in these preliminary leaves: the final two were later available upon application to the publisher).~Two other American publishers also issued DOMBEY in parts. Bradbury & Guild of Boston issued a very similar set of parts, likewise with 36 plates running a month behind, in wrappers that were exact facsimiles of the English ones. Priority between this issue and the Wiley & Putnam one is unknown, as it probably was measured in hours, not days. Lea & Blanchard of Philadelphia also issued parts, but not as quickly: they waited for plates to be engraved, so that all 40 could be included (they advertised it as "the only edition which presents the plates accompanying the text to which they refer."~This is A REMARKABLY FINE SET. Most of the parts are virtually flawless, other than trifling wear at the very tips of the spine; Part I has a chip in its rear wrapper, and Parts XV and XVII have minor wear at the spine, but overall the condition of this set is amazing. The rarity of American Dickens in parts can hardly be over-emphasized; it is no exaggeration that one encounters hundreds of English sets in parts for every single American set of parts.

        TOPOGRAPHICAL MAP OF THE ROAD FROM MISSOURI TO OREGON COMMENCING AT THE MOUTH OF THE KANSAS IN THE MISSOURI RIVER AND ENDING AT THE MOUTH OF THE WALLAH-WALLAH IN THE COLUMBIA...

      Baltimore: E. Weber & Co., 1846. Old fold lines, some light wear and chipping to several edges. Very minor foxing. Very good. First issue of the first map "to show the Oregon Trail accurately" (Rumsey). One of the greatest monuments to the cartography of the American West. Charles Preuss, born George Karl Ludwig Preuss in Höhscheid, Prussia in 1803, served as the cartographer on Fremont's first and second expeditions and drew all the maps which accompany Fremont's reports. Preuss also produced the present masterful map of the Oregon Trail. It is drawn to a very detailed scale, ten miles to an inch, and in addition to providing accurate cartographical information about the whole of the 1,670- mile route between the Missouri and the Columbia rivers, the sheets combine to give a real feeling of the daily progress of the expedition (in 1842 and 1843, between June 10 and Oct. 26) by including indicators of where and when each overnight camp was set, where each noon-day halt was called, and the total distance from the starting point of Westport Landing. Longitudinal and latitudinal coordinates are also given, as are daily "Meteorological Observations" and "Remarks," including notes on the availability of game, water, grazing, the friendliness (or otherwise) of local Indian tribes, and some quite lengthy extracts from Fremont's REPORT. A second revised issue of this map was published in 1849. "More than any other persons, John Charles Fremont and Charles Preuss dominate the cartography of the American West during the three years before the gold rush....Owing to its rarity and to its long having stood in the shadow of the more widely known and distributed Fremont-Preuss map of 1845, Preuss' sectional map of 1846 has been insufficiently appreciated by students of Western history. In particular, those interested either in Fremont's travels in 1842-43 or the revolution of the transcontinental wagon roads will find that the map rewards close study" - Wheat.

        A MAP OF THE UNITED STATES OF MEXICO, AS ORGANIZED AND DEFINED BY THE SEVERAL ACTS OF CONGRESS OF THAT REPUBLIC

      Philadelphia: H.S. Tanner, 1846. Sheet size: 23 x 28 1/2 inches. Very good. An important and rare map of Mexico, depicting Texas in its largest form, the "1846, second edition" of the celebrated Tanner map. The present map embraces all of modern Mexico and the southwestern United States, and prominently features the new state of Texas with its original extensive boundaries. Henry S. Tanner, of Philadelphia, was one of the most esteemed American mapmakers of the first half of the 19th century. His 1822 MAP OF NORTH AMERICA was one of the most influential of the period. In 1825 he excerpted and enlarged the portion of the map pertaining to what was a newly independent Mexico, which then included the entire American southwest. Tanner's map effectively became the definitive source map for the region. It was brazenly copied in the White Gallaher & White map of 1828, which in turn directly inspired the famous Disturnell map of 1846, the "Treaty map" initially used to consider the redemarcation of the international border following the Mexican-American War. Walter Ristow noted that Tanner produced the first edition of the UNITED STATES OF MEXICO map in 1825, and furthermore cited that he "issued 10 variants of one or another of five states" of the map up to 1847. The present map is officially termed the "1846, second edition," although it is actually the seventh variant of the map to be issued, according to Ristow's classification. It closely follows the "1832, second edition," even including the "April 2nd, 1832" copyright imprint in the lower right corner. At this time, interest in all matters relating to Mexico and Texas amongst the American public was at an all-time high, and it is thought that Tanner hastily prepared this edition in order to capitalize on the commercial opportunities. Tanner did not take the time to avail himself of the most recent geographical advances, and consequently this map is a fascinating cartographic hold-out during a time of unprecedented change. Texas is portrayed as an enormous Mexican state, although it had since 1832 seceded, and later joined the Union as an American state. Its massive territory extends far to the north and west of its modern limits, following the eastern band of the Rio Grande up to its headwaters, up into the "stovepipe" to a point touching the 42nd parallel. The geographical detailing of most of Texas is quite accurate, as Tanner was well apprised of Stephen F. Austin's surveys, a point underscored by his inclusion of "Austin's Colony" in east-central Texas. In an improvement to its antecedent, the western portion of the state owes its form to William Emory's map of 1844. The depiction of what is now modern Mexico is quite advanced, in light of Alexander von Humboldt's exhaustive charting of the country. At this time Tanner elected not to include information from Charles Fremont's ground-breaking map of 1845, based on his own discoveries. The coastline of Alta California still maintains a mythical quality, void of most actual details such as San Francisco Bay, but is replete with imaginary details such as the Buenaventura, Los Mongos, Timpangos, and San Felipe rivers. The interior regions extending all the way into what is now Colorado are shown to be almost completely unknown. A curious prophetic detail is the demarcation of a boundary line between Alta and Baja California, although located to the south of the international border that was to be set in 1848. The map includes a detailed inset depicting the key travel route from the port of Veracruz to Mexico City, the same path taken by U.S. forces during their successful attack on the Mexican capital in 1847. In the spirit of the times, the map also includes two statistical tables, one of distances and the other of population and geographical details of individual states. Tanner, wishing to update this map, produced a "third edition" later that same year that evinced Fremont's discoveries. RISTOW, A LA CARTE, p.207. WHEAT TRANSMISSISSIPPI III, p.38.
