Minor rubbing to extremities, slight wear to spine ends, spine and edges of covers browned, top edge dust toned; an excellent, unsophisticated copy.

The slim volume was first published by Aylott and Jones in an edition of 1,000 copies on 26 May 1846, but was not a commercial success. After the huge success of Jane Eyre, published in October 1847, the unsold stock of Poems, consisting of 961 copies, was bought by Smith, Elder & Co. in September 1848 and reissued the following month with a cancel title page, but retaining the original date.

Dickens, his wife, Kate, and her sister Georgina, with the Dickens's five children and several servants, left London by coach on July 2, 1844, bound for Italy. After one month's stay in the Villa Pallavicino della Peschiere, in Genoa (where Dickens wrote The Chimes), he and Kate left the children with Georgina and traveled south, stopping first in Pisa and Florence. In Rome, Dickens was captivated by the ruins, practically overcome, he later said, by the sight of the Coliseum. They also visited Herculaneum and Pompeii, making a perilous ascent to the rim of Vesuvius and peering into the "Hell of boiling fire below." Dickens published reports of his journey in the Daily News, as a series of eight "Travelling Letters. Written on the Road." Pictures from Italy (incorporating the letters, with five chapters added) appeared in book form on May 18, 1846. N. B.

Small 8vo: (viii), 174, [2]; complete. A Near Fine copy in bright cloth with spine a bit darkened and with the vignette title and frontis tipped back in.

        Replica apologetica de um escriptor calumniado e juizo final de um plagiario di famador que se intitula general.

      Madrid, Imprensa da Viuva de D.R.J. Dominguez, 1846. - Large 8°, unbound. Uncut and partly unopened. Short tear at foot of title page. Faint dampstains. In very good condition. 24 pp. *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION of this relatively early work by the by the great Brazilian historian and diplomat Francisco Adolpho de Varnhagen (1816-1878), later Visconde do Porto Seguro. Varnhagen had criticized General José Inácio Abreu e Lima's Compendio da Historia do Brasil (Rio de Janeiro, 1843) in "Primeiro juizo submettido ao Instituto Historico e Geographico Brazileiro," which was printed in the Instituto's Revista, Rio de Janeiro, 1844 (Horch 282). The General's reply was so scathing that it was not printed in the Revista, "tendo o autor ultrapassado nela os limites da decência" (Horch p. 282). Varnhagen published this response to the General's comments in Madrid. The Replica includes 16 pages of supporting documents.Francisco Adolpho de Varnhagen (1816-1878) was admitted to membership in the Real Academia das Sciencias de Lisboa and became a member of the Instituto Historico e Geographico Brazileiro in 1841. In 1844 he was granted Brazilian citizenship, and began a diplomatic career that took him to Portugal and Spain (where this work was published), then to Paraguay, Venezuela, the Republic of New Granada, Ecuador, Chile, Peru, and the Netherlands. His thoroughly researched and still valuable História Geral do Brasil was first published in 1854-1857. In 1872, the Emperor D Pedro II gave him the title of Baron of Porto Seguro, elevating him to Viscount two years later. His final diplomatic service was in Vienna, Austria, where he was serving as minister when he died.*** Bellido, Varnhagen e a sua obra, 12. Horch, Francisco Adolfo de Varnhagen.

        William “Buffalo Bill” Cody Autograph Quotation Signed Twice

      - Revered hero of the American West, William Frederick “Buffalo Bill” Cody (1846-1917), quoted his famous wild west credo: “True to friend & foe” and signed “W. F. Cody” as well as “Buffalo Bill” on this 2 ¼” x 4 ¾” piece of paper. Born in the Iowa Territory, William Cody was a rider for the Pony Express at age fourteen, fought for the Union Army during the Civil War, and later served as a scout during the Indian Wars, for which he received a Medal of Honor in 1872. Buffalo Bill received his moniker after the Civil War when he was contracted to shoot buffalo for the consumption of the Kansas Pacific Railroad workers. He is rumored to have shot over 4,000 buffalo in an 18-month span (1867-1868). He also won a shooting match against William Comstock for the right to use the nickname, bagging 68 buffalo to Comstock’s 48. But the legend of Buffalo Bill truly began in 1869 when he met Ned Buntline, a writer who wrote (exaggerated) stories of Cody’s adventures and later produced some of the Wild West Shows in which Cody starred. In 1883, Buffalo Bill produced his own show, Buffalo Bill’s Wild West, a circus-like spectacle that toured America as well as Europe. Throughout his career, some of the figures Cody performed with included Annie Oakley, “Wild Bill” Hickock, Sitting Bull, Frank Butler, Gabriel Dumont, and Lillian Smith. Archivally matted with an image of Buffalo Bill to 12 ¼” x 17 ½”. Condition: Some light soil, overall very good condition.

In addition on pages 151 and 152 is a listing of the leaders of both the "English and German Jews' Synagogue" and the "Spanish and Portuguese Jews' Synagogue" in Kingston.

        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

It has of late attracted much attention in the United States; a number of Americans are already settled in it, and many others are preparing to emigrate thither." Regarding Oregon, the Accompaniment declares that "the United States have an indubitable claim to the whole region of Oregon, from N. latitude 42¡ to 54¡ 40', yet the government has several times proposed, from motives of accommodation, to adopt the 49th parallel of latitude as the dividing line." . Wheat describes the map: "In the Upper California portion, FrŽmont is carefully followed, while further north Wilkes is followed. The boundary (to be) with Mexico is imperfectly shown but Texas appears with the magnified boundaries, including Santa Fe, of the 1844 Emory. The various claims to Oregon appear. The Accompaniment is of particular interest, containing perhaps the clearest statement of Oregon and California facts that came out of the period just prior to settlement of the former's boundaries and inclusion of the latter in the United States."The text describes each state and territory in turn and references early explorers as well as Lewis and Clark, historical persons and events. In the advertisements at the end of the text, Mitchell declares: "This Map represents that part of North American which extends from lat. 26 to lat. 56 N., and from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean.

        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 fivemembers, 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 agroup 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'sreputation, 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."

        Route Across the Rocky Mountains, with a description of Oregon and California: their geographical features, their resources, soil, climate, productions

      John B. Semans, printer, Lafayette, In 1846 - 152pp. Expertly bound to style in cloth-backed paper boards. Housed in a blue morocco backed box. A very rare key overland guide One of the earliest and rarest of overland guide books to the Oregon Trail, chronologically the second such guide, preceded only by the Hastings guide of 1845. The authors went overland to Oregon in 1843. Winter went to California the following year, then returned to Indiana, where he arranged to publish this guidebook in time for the 1846 emigrant season. The guide provides a detailed account of the 1843 trip, a long description of Oregon, Winter's route to California, the Bear Flag movement, gold at Santa Barbara, and of northern California. The return route from California is also described, and there is a table of distances in the rear. Winter eventually settled in the Napa-Sonoma area. This is the issue with corrected text on pages 26 and 36. A rarity, afforded a "d" by Howes, who calls it "one of the greatest of early overland narratives." A key guide and important work of Western Americana, with an interesting association. Cowan I, p.315; Graff 2221; Howes J142, "d."; Sabin 36260; Streeter Sale 3145; Wagner-Camp 122.
