        Mexico & Guatemala:

      S. Augustus Mitchell. Philadelphia. Copyright 1846. - Handcolored map, lithograph, 12 x 15 inches including decorative border on sheet 13 3/4 x 17 1/4 inches. Toning and light soiling to margins, archivally repaired tear entering the decorative border at centre of upper edge, pinholes in three corners, occasional light soiling in image. Good condition. A fascinating map of the "American West" before it was: the map, published at the start of the Mexican-American War, shows Mexico extending south of the Oregon Territory and east to the Rocky Mountains and Rio Grande, including the huge Mexican state "Upper or New California." It is from the 1846 edition of Mitchell's New Universal Atlas (with a plate number of 36 outside the neat line). The copyright line at lower centre reads: "Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1846 by H.N. Burroughs, in the Clerk's Office of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania." There is an inset map "Valley of Mexico" at lower left and of Guatemala at upper right. A fascinating snapshot of the Western United States just prior to the California Gold Rush and the annexation of California.

        Livre de mariage d'apres les manuscrits de la Biblioth?que royale.

      Gruel, 1846, Hardcover, Book Condition: Very Good ConditionSize: 153 x 110mm, Livre de mariage d'apres les manuscrits de la Biblioth?que royale. Paris: Gruel, '1846' [colophon 1849]. 8? (153 x 110mm). Chromolithographic title and 91 chromolithographic facsimile leaves incorporating one full-page frontispiece, one full-page part-title and 14 full-page illustrations by H. Moulin after Auguste Louis Charles Ledoux, printed in gold and colours throughout by Engelmann and Graf, mounted on guards. EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED with 5 additional leaves with chromolithographic borders enclosing a calligraphic manuscript of the wedding-service of Ferdinando, 1st Duke of Genoa, (1822-1855) and Elizabeth, Princess of Saxony, (1830-1912), in 1850; the borders with additional painted decoration incorporating their arms and monogram initials, and 6 hand-painted and gilt engraved plates ofSaints Ferdinand, Elizabeth, John the Evangelist, Theresa, Amelia, andthe Blessed Virgin Mary, with letterpress titles printed in gold beneath, one by Andr? F?art, another by L. Butavand after A. Fries. Original green velvet [?by Gruel], upper board with applied silver gilt and enamel arms of Savoia and Saxony, silver gilt cornerpieces, and bosses, velvet foreedge straps with silver gilt fittings, silver gilt spine-ends, gilt edges, yellow fabric endleaves, 6 joined silk markers with white silk and silver thread tassles (short splits on upper joint, short tear on one strap); silklined green roan box with gilt crest on cover. Provenance: Prince Ferdinando, Duke of Genoa and Princess Elizabeth of Saxony, inserted flyleaf with illuminated strapwork cartouche in a French renaissance style with the arms of Savoy and Saxony in gold and colours, binding. A FINELY-BOUND FACSIMILE LIVRE DE MARIAGE DECORATED AND EXTRA-ILLUSTRATED TO COMMEMORATETHE ROYAL WEDDING OF PRINCE FERDINAND OF SAVOY AND PRINCESS ELIZABETH OF SAXONY. The basis of the volume is a chromolithographic livre de mariage printed for the binder and publisher Gruel by the company of Engelmann and Graf. Godefroy Engelmann I (1788-1839) had developed a pioneering, fully-automated process for colour lithography in 1836 and founded the company Soci?t? Engelmann, P?re et Fils with his son Godefroy II (1814-1897) in 1837, which became Engelmann et Graf in 1842, and quickly established itself as the leading company in France for the printing of facsimiles of illuminated manuscripts. The binder Pierre Paul Gruel died in c. 1848, and his business was continued by his widow -- who married Godefroy Engelmann II in 1851 -- and his son L?on (1841-1923). The Livres de mariage produced by Engelmann et Graf were available in a variety of forms, and this example, based on manuscripts in the Biblioth?que royale (including the Grandes Heures of Anne of Brittany and Les tr?s riches heures of Jean de France, duc de Berry), wasprepared in a particularly luxurious form for the marriage of Prince Ferdinand, Duke of Genoa and Princess Elizabeth of Saxony on 22 April 1850. Five leaves bearing the calligraphic text of Ferdinand and Elizabeth's wedding service, decorated by hand with their arms and monogram and illuminated with painted initials and infills, have been inserted before the chromolithographic text, and heavily painted and gilt engravings of five Saints, including Ferdinand and Elizabeth, have been added, as has a preliminary painted armorial before the printed title. The binding is unsigned, but was probably executed by Gruel, and is richly ornamented with metal furnishings and an enamelled plaque bearing the arms of Savoy and Saxony. Lot Notes: Prince Ferdinando, Duke of Genoa, (1822-1855) married at The Nymphenburg Palace, Dresden, Elisabeth of Saxony, (1830-1912) thedaughter of Johann I, King of Saxony in 1850. The younger son of Carlo Alberto, King of Sardinia, (1798-1849) and brother of Vittorio Emanuele II, King of Italy, (1820-1878) he was created Duke of Genoa in 1831 and was an Admiral in the Sardinian navy. His daughter, Margherita, (1851-1926) married her first cousin Umberto I, King of Italy, Livre

        Am Dorfrand, 1846

      1846. Bleistift auf Papier, unten rechts signiert und datiert: "J. Höger. 1846.", verso bezeichnet: "No 93. Jos. Hoeger. Zeichnung", sowie mit dem Stempel der Sammlung J. A. Ruf, Wien (Lugt 2158), 19,5 x 26,4 cm. Joseph Höger gehörte zusammen mit seinen Studienkameraden Johann Fischbach, Joseph Schwemminger oder Friedrich Loos zum Schülerkreis Joseph Mößmers an der Wiener Akademie der bildenden Künste. 1843 wurde er dort selbst Professor. Eine lange Freundschaft verband ihn mit der Familie Gauermann. Mit den Söhnen des damals schon berühmten Jakob Gauermann verbrachte er schon als Jugendlicher viele Stunden auf Wanderungen durch die Gegend um deren Heimatort Miesenbach. Schließlich heiratete er 1832 auch in die Familie ein. Diese Jugendeinflüsse sind in Joseph Högers Werk immer präsent. Trotz der immer stärker vorpreschenden Freilichtmalerei, wie sie Ferdinand Georg Waldmüller propagierte, hielt er sich an die klassisch komponierte Landschaft. Dies ist allerdings keineswegs ein Versäumnis, wie unsere Bleistiftzeichnung verdeutlicht. Der leicht aus der Mitte heraus versetzte Baum bestimmt mit seiner ausladenden Baumkrone das Bild. Der Ausblick links und die Hütte rechts stabilisieren die Komposition. Mit einer wunderbaren Mischung aus präzisem, aber nie pedantischem und flottem, aber nie fahrigem Strich gelingt Höger eine gelungene Mischung aus Detailbeschreibung und atmosphärischer Gesamterscheinung.

      Mannheim, 4. III. 1846.. 2½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Sänger Ludwig Cramolini (1805-1884): "Hätte ich nur einige Wochen früher erfahren, daß Du nicht mehr in Darmstadt Lust zu bleiben hast, so hätte ich mich mit der nemlichen Frage an Dich gewendet, die Du jetzt an mich stellst. Mittlerweilen sind aber zwei Tenoristen auf Gastrollen und Engagement eingeladen worden [...] Wir haben ein eigenes Unglück mit unserem Tenoristen. Ist einmal einer da, der gefällt, so lauft er entweder fort oder er verliert seine Stimme [...] Bei erprobt guten Tenoristen kommen wir entweder zu früh oder zu spät und so leidet die hies. Oper schon seit Jahren an diesem wunden Fleck. Übrigens ist ein Engagement wie in Darmstadt nicht leicht wieder gefunden, wegen des unschätzbaren Vortheils durch 4 od. 5 Monate hindurch sein eigener Herr zu seyn. Unannehmlichkeiten gibts an jedem Theater und ich glaube an sehr vielen mehr als in Darmstadt [...]". - Vinzenz Lachner, der Bruder Franz und Ignaz Lachners, wurde 1831 Organist in Wien, 1836 Hofkapellmeister in Mannheim. - Etwas fleckig und gebräunt; im Mittelfalz annähernd durchtrennt; Bl. 2 mit kleinem Ausriß durch Siegelbruch.

He had the idea of abolishing pain in surgery, and he was actually using ether and opium by inhalation; but he considered the ether to be only a vehicle and attributed the analgesic effect to the opium." - "His article is curious, significant, and not little pathetic. It was published on October 28, 1846, twelve days after Morton's successful demonstration of ether anesthesia, but Smilie had surely submitted his work before that date. Bigelow's paper, based on Morton's exhibition of ether anesthesia, did not appear until November 18, 1846." -cf.

      - Boston Med. Surg. J., 35/18. - Boston, Wednesday, December 2, 1846, 8°, pp.349-368, orig. wrappers in a fine slip case. First Edition, in the extreme rare original wrappers! - Upon the advice of friends, Morton, through his agent, Edward Warren, presented a memorial to the 29th Congress, 2nd Session, to have his priority to the ether discovery established and to request an award for the use of his patent (U.S. Patent No. 4848, November 12, 1846), which at that time was so important for the use of ether to provide comfort and care to those wounded in the war with Mexico. This first of many presentations to the U.S. Congress was heard by the Select Committee of the House of Representatives, consisting of five members, four of whom were physicians.* They listened but made no report, and their deliberations were not published. Members of the committee were apparently confused by the slanderous campaign against Morton by a group of dentists and a few physicians in Boston and vicinity, led by Josiah F. Flagg (1789-1853), a practicing dentist. This group's effort came to be known as the "Dental Manifesto" and was effective in ruining Morton's reputation, dental practice and income. -cf. Eugene H. Conner - On the back cover we find W.T.G.Mortons add "To Surgeons and Physicians" and M.P.Hanson's add "Surgical Operations without Pain" - "M.P.Hanson, M.D., 10 Tremont Temple, Boston, is preapared to furnish Dentists and Surgeons generally with apparatus and instructions for the use of the COMPOUND VAPOR ANODYNE.

        THE MANSIONS OF ENGLAND AND WALES. COUNTY OF CORNWALL

      London: C.J. Greenwood, 1846. Edward Twycross (1803-1852) published "The Mansions of England and Wales" in 1846-1850. Produced as an historical reference for the stately homes of England and in tracing genealogies of members of the British Aristocracy. Five volumes and the County of Cornwall were published, however, the Cornwall volume is by far the rarest. The financing was through subscription, just sixty subscribed to the Cornwall volume, mainly from the seats illustrated and are listed. There is no copy in the British Library and just one copy held in British libraries auctions records show that just one copy has appeared for sale over the last 30 years. Full page outline map of Cornwall showing the seats and Gentlemens houses, 51 tinted lithograph plates many by C.J. Greenwood. The list of plates calls for a second plate of Place (St. Antony) which is not present here and presumed never published, the only other copy to appear at auction also had one plate missing presumably this bis plate. Original blue cloth binding, good, appears to have been rebacked, cloth slightly faded and a little marked from general wear. Contents clean and tight with minimal foxing, some plates slightly affected but mainly around the margins and the verso, text clean and paper bright, no inscriptions, stamps or book plates. Provenance: Signed by Francis John Hext of Tredethy to the front pastedown; Captain Hext of Tredethy, was one of the original subscribers to this work. A rare and desirable item . First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No Dust Jacket. Folio.

        Insensibility produced by the Inhalation of the Vapour of Ethereal Solution of Opium, 28. Oct. 1846

      . Boston Med. Surg. J., 35/13. - Boston, October 28, 1846, 8°, pp.249-268, OBrosch.. First Edition, in the extreme rare original wrappers! - "The name of E.R.Smilie may be added to the list of those who came close to discovering anesthesia, and he came as close as anyone. He had the idea of abolishing pain in surgery, and he was actually using ether and opium by inhalation; but he considered the ether to be only a vehicle and attributed the analgesic effect to the opium." - "His article is curious, significant, and not little pathetic. It was published on October 28, 1846, twelve days after Morton's successful demonstration of ether anesthesia, but Smilie had surely submitted his work before that date. Bigelow's paper, based on Morton's exhibition of ether anesthesia, did not appear until November 18, 1846." -cf. Cole - Milestones in Anesthesia, Nr. 5; W.Stanley Sykes, p.48
