        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."

A superbly-detailed map of Scotland, a true group effort: the map itself was drawn by Frederick Carrington, the hatchuring of the many hills by George William Carrington; the printing plate was a mixture of engraving by John Dower and etching by Thomas Harwood; but the vignette of Melrose Abbey was drawn by Thomas Allom and engraved by Henry Griffiths. It was published as the map to accompany Samuel Lewis's 'Topographical Dictionary of Scotland'. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        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.

        Autograph Signature of Margaret Fuller

      New York. 1846. Full signature, "Sarah Margaret Fuller / New York. 24th August. 1846." on white paper, 6 5/16 x 4 1/4", some soiling from glue from previous mounting, edges of paper folded back on three sides and glued down for previous mounting, traces of folds, else very good with signature uncharacteristically large for Fuller. Housed in custom-made red morocco and cloth clamshell box, the author&#39;s name in gilt on the paneled spine which has four gilt tooled fleurons.& It is hard to overstate the importance of Margaret Fuller (1810-1850) in the history of women&#39;s rights in the United States. She was a leading thinker in the nineteenth century, a major influence on Transcendental thought. She edited the Transcendental journal The Dial and was as much a part of that group as Emerson or Thoreau. In fact, Emerson, W.H. Channing, who was Thoreau&#39;s first biographer and Fuller&#39;s brother-in-law, and James Freeman Clark edited these journals after her untimely death at sea in 1850 at age 40. Emerson, on learning of her death, sent Thoreau to the site of the shipwreck to search for her manuscripts and personal belongings. Her 1845 book, WOMAN IN THE NINETEENTH CENTURY is considered the first important American book advocating women&#39;s rights.& On August 1, 1846, Margaret Fuller sailed on the S.S. Cambria from New York for Liverpool. She had been planning this trip, accompanied by Marcus and Rebecca Spring, since perhaps as early as the fall of 1845. She was working for Greeley&#39;s Tribune and was to be paid an article - twice the going rate! She sent her first letter on August 23, 1846 from Ambleside, Westmoreland. Her second letter for the Tribune was dated August 27, 1846. Both were published in the Tribune and later collected in AT HOME AND ABROAD published in 1856 and edited by her brother, Arthur. These Tribune articles made Fuller the first American foreign correspondent. Fuller, At Home and Abroad, or Things and Thoughts in America and Europe, pp. 119-33.
