        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 Produced as an historical reference for the stately homes of England and in tracing genealogies of members of the British Aristocracy.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

        New Commentaries on the Laws of England. 4 Vols. 1st American Edition

      1846. First American Edition of Stephens's New Commentaries Stephen, Henry John [1787-1864]. New Commentaries on the Laws of England (Partly Founded on Blackstone). New-York: Halsted & Voorhies, 1841-1846. [Imprint varies: Volumes II-IV state New-York: John S, Voorhies.] Four volumes. Folding tables of descents and consanguinity. Octavo (8-1/2" x 6"). Contemporary law calf, blind rules to boards, red and black lettering pieces to spine. Moderate rubbing with some wear to extremities, some chipping to lettering pieces, some stains and scuffs to boards, hinges cracked or starting. Offsetting to margins of endleaves, occasional light foxing, faint dampstaining to second half of Volume IV. Early owner stamps to each front pastedown, interior otherwise clean. A solid copy of an uncommon set. * First American edition, a reprint of the first London edition, 1841-1845, with some minor typographical changes and the omission of the Table of Consanguinity from Volume II. New Commentaries is an exposition of English law that preserves Blackstone's topical arrangement and the sections from his text that were still relevant in Stephen's day. (These are set off with square brackets.) A successful work, it went through twenty editions by 1938. In the Dictionary of National Biography Dicey observed that "in reality it was an original production, differing essentially in character and merit from his predecessor. (...) Stephen showed the qualities in which Blackstone was comparatively deficient--consummate logical power and singular precision and accuracy of style. Had the work been published as an original treatise, it would have stood upon a level with Blackstone's work" (XVIII:1047). Eller, The William Blackstone Collection in the Yale Law Library 204.

        Sam Houston, the romantic, pens a touching four line poem on the virtues of women

      [Washington?], [c.1846-1859] Autograph Manuscript Signed, "Sam Houston," likely as Senator, 1 page, 5.5" x 4.5", [no place, no date], a four-line poem originally inscribed in a woman's memory book. Light toning from previous matting, a few minor contemporary ink smudges, else very good to fine condition with a large, bold signature. Apart from his reputation as the hero of San Jacinto and founder of Texas, Houston was something of a romantic. Writing in an a hostess' memory book, beneath the title "Texas" (accomplished in another hand), Houston writes in full: "Woman is lovely to the sightAs gentle as the dews of even,As bright as mornings earliest lightAnd spotless at the snows of Heaven." Though undated, it is likely that Houston probably accomplished this poem during his years in Washington representing Texas in the U.S. Senate from 1

      Sketches in Egypt and Nubia, from Drawings made on the Spot. Francis Graham Moon. 1846. - Lithograph. Hand coloured. Size: 36 x 53 cm. Fine condition. Mounted size: 53 x 68.4cm Roberts was the first independent, professional British artist to travel so extensively in the Near East. His tour in 1838-9 produced 272 sketches, a panorama of Cairo and three full sketchbooks, enough material to "serve me for the rest of my life" (Roberts, eastern journal, 28 Jan 1839). Over the next decade he made "a series of intire new drawings" for the large coloured lithographs executed by Louis Haghe for The Holy Land, Syria, Idumea, Arabia, Egypt & Nubia, which was originally published by subscription, 1842-9. No publication before this had presented so comprehensive a series of views of the monuments, landscape, and people of the Near East. "Robert's Holy Land was one of the most important and elaborate ventures of nineteenth-century publishing, and it was the apotheosis of the tinted lithograph" (Abbey, Travel).

        The inhalation of an ethereal vapour to prevent sensibility to pain during surgical operations (pp.356-359). + Peirson, A.L.: Surgical Operations with the aid of the "New Gas" (pp.362-363).

      . 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. All necessary instructions can be communicated by letter and apparatus sent by express. Terms low. Orders my be sent to my room, or to N.Hunt, Agent 128 Washington St.; Dec.2--if."

        STATE OF MAINE, EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT, AUGUSTA, MAY 29, 1846. TO THE CITIZENS OF MAINE...STATE OF MAINE. HEAD QUARTERS, AUGUSTA, MAY 29, 1846. GENERAL ORDER...[caption titles]

      [Augusta, Me. 1846].. [2]pp., on bifolium sheet of blue paper. Printed on rectos of each leaf only. Early soft creases from folding. Tiny separations at cross-folds. Small bit of discoloration on second page. Very good. Message from governor of Maine H.J. Anderson and general order from Alfred Redington, Commander in Chief of the Maine militia, calling volunteers to arms in the Mexican- American War. Anderson explains that "the repeated and long continued efforts of the National Government to effect an amicable settlement of the differences with the government of Mexico, have unfortunately proved unavailing," resulting in the American declaration of war. Anderson notes that the President has requested one regiment of infantry from Maine, and writes that he has no doubt "that the patriotic citizens of this State will promptly respond to the call of the general government for aid in defending any portion of its territory." Redington&#39;s general order lists the positions in the infantry volunteer corps being assembled and transmits instructions for volunteers. "Maine, although distant from the scene of the conflict, will be as prompt as any of her sister States in repelling the forces of the invader. Her patriotic citizens will be as ready to vindicate rights upon the Rio Grande, as upon their own immediate territory. Their love of country knows no section, but embraces the entire boundaries of the Republic" - Redington.
