        Gesetz der Urgesundheitskunde. Erneuert zu München, am 21. und 22. Iuli 1847.

      München, 1847.Lithographierter Einblattdruck. 32 x 38,5 cm. Über KVK nur in der Stadtbibliothek Mainz und im Stadtarchiv München nachweisbar. - Sehr seltener Einblattdruck mit den 10 Thesen des Gesundheitsapostels Ernst Mahner zur "Urgesundheitskunde", die hier auf zwei Tafeln in der Art der Gesetzestafeln Moses abgebildet sind. Ernst Mahner hatte einige Jahre in Deutschland aufsehenerregende Auftritte, er "wandelte mit priesterlicher Würde in langem Gewande barhäuptig, mit wallenden Haaren und mächtigem Vollbart, durch die Straßen. Er hatte seine Heilslehre nach Mosis Vorbild in zehn Gebote gekleidet, schlug sie öffentlich an, wie Luther seine Thesen, und verteidigte sie öffentlich in Vorträgen gegen mäßiges Eintrittsgeld. Er eiferte wider die geistigen Getränke und das `stinkgiftige Schmauchkraut`, rühmte das Wasser und pries bombastisch die gütige Natur nach der Art der heutigen Naturärzte" (Adolf Kussmaul in "Jugenderinnerungen eines alten Arztes", Stuttgart 1899). - Kussmaul weiß über den komischen Heiligen weiter zu berichten: "Böse Zungen sagten ihm nach, sein Gesetz sei strenger als der Apostel gegen sich selbst, und behaupteten fest, sie hätten Mahner im weltlichen Gewande bei Trüffelpastete und Sherry im Hinterstübchen eines Mannheimer Restaurants überrascht. - Es wurde uns erzählt, er steige jetzt mit seinem Meister täglich auf den Königsstuhl, um dort oben im Walde auf den Wegen und Halden Sonnenbäder zu nehmen; sie liefen fast unbekleidet barfuß einher. Leider hatte die Polizei kein hygienisches Einsehen, sie verbot diese stärkenden Übungen, um den Damen der Stadt den verleideten Besuch des Königsstuhls wieder zu ermöglichen. Mahner war wirklich ein ungewöhnlich abgehärteter Mensch. Die Zeitungen berichteten von einem erstaunlichen Schauspiel, das er an einem sonnigen Wintertage den Bewohnern von Mainz bereitet hatte. Auf einer Eisscholle stehend, in Sandalen und nur an den Hüften bekleidet, soll er, einen Becher Rheinwasser schwingend, auf dem Strom an der Stadt vorbeigetrieben haben. - Der Abhärtung ungeachtet, hat er kein hohes Alter erreicht. Verkommen im Elend, starb er im städtischen Hospital zu Konstanz." - Etwas fleckig und leicht gebrauchsspurig. Mehrfach gefaltet.

        SIGNED OFFICIAL ORDER: A HOLOGRAPHIC LETTER IN PERRY'S PENNED HANDWRITING, WITH

      Tuspan [Mexico] 1847, Naval Head Quarters. One page, quarto,. Official Order, issued April 24th. very good condition, with. folds, neatly framed and glazed with illustrations. R A R E. AUTHENTIC COMMODORE PERRY SIGNED ORDERS LETTER This document reads: "The Officers, Seamen and Marines at present on shore at Tuspan will be ready to embark at 4 o'clock tomorrow morning, & every person with the artillery small arms munitions, baggage and every article belonging to the expedition will be on board by 1/2 past 5 A.M., ready for crossing the Bar. Each Steamer will take in tow, a Gun boat, each Gun boat will tow one or more of the captured vessels or launches. The artillery and heavy baggage will be placed in the captured Launches, which ar to be secured by good towlines. It is expected that the whole Flotilla will be on the Bar by 1/2 past 6." Boldly signed by "M.C. Perry" as Commanding Home Squadron. Though the Mexican War was not yet over, the naval battles in the Gulf of Mexico ended with the surrender of the powerful fortress at Vera Cruz on March 27, 1847. Within five years, Perry was to go to Japan to in an historic expedition to open that country to world trade. Perry [1794-1858] was an American naval office, who command- ed the expedition that established United States relations with Japan. Born April 10, 1794, in South Kingston, Rhode Island, the brother of Oliver Hazard Perry, he began his naval career as midshipman at the age of 15. He advanced to lieutenant in 1813 and to commander in 1826. He supervised the construction of the first naval steamship, the Fulton, and upon its completion in 1837,he took command with the rank of captain. He was promoted to commodore in 1842. In 1846-47 he commanded the Gulf squadron during the Mexican War. In 1853, Perry was sent to Japan, a country that had been closed to outsiders since the 17th century. On July 8, he led a squadron of four ships into Tokyo Bay & present- ed representatives of the Emperor with the text of a propos- ed commercial and friendship treaty. To give the reluctant Japanese court time to consider the offer, he then sailed for China. With an even more powerful fleet, he returned to Japan in February 1854. The treaty, signed on March 31, 1854 provided that humane treatment be extended to sailors ship- wrecked in Japanese territory, that U.S. ships be permitted to buy coal in Japan, and that the ports of Shimoda & Hako- date be opened to U. S. commerce. Perry's mission ended Japan's 400 years of self-imposed isolation, a prerequisite for its subsequent development into a modern nation. Perry died in New York City on March 4, 1858.

        Monterey, As seen from a house-top in the main Plaza, [to the west.] October, 1846. [No. 1 of a Series.] [after the capture of the city by the U.S. Forces under Gen'l Taylor]

      New York: G. & W. Endicott, 1847. Black & white lithograph. Engraved by Chas. Fendrich after Whiting. In excellent condition. Image size: 12 1/2 x 18 1/4 inches. From Whiting's "Army Portfolio," a very scarce series of Mexican War views, which is not only one of the primary visual records of the conflict, but also a fine topographical work that accurately recorded the area at a crucial turning point in its history. "The rarest lithographs of the war." (Tyler) According to Whiting family tradition, the work was limited to no more than 24 sets (quoted by Goodspeed's of Boston: "The Month at Goodspeed's Book Shop" vol. XXI, nos. 2-3, Nov-Dec. 1959, p. 43). In late 1845, General Taylor's army was camped at Corpus Christi, Texas. In January 1846, they advanced to the United States side of the Rio Grande, where they remained until May, and then marched on to the strongly fortified city of Monterey, which was taken in September. Whiting's work documents this campaign. Although he originally intended to continue the series beyond five plates, the original drawings for the additional plates were lost aboard a steamboat that sank in the Mississippi. Daniel Powers Whiting was born in Troy, New York, and graduated in 1832 from the U.S. Military Academy, where he received formal training as a topographical artist. He was assigned to the 7th U.S. Infantry, with which he served in various garrisons before being promoted to captain in the spring of 1845. During the Mexican War, he served in the army of General Zachary Taylor and was made Major "for gallant and meritorious conduct" in the battles of Fort Brown, Monterey, Vera Cruz and Cerro Gordo. After the war, he fought the Seminoles, joined the Utah expedition of 1859, served in various garrisons in Missouri and Kansas, and completed frontier duty in the Indian Territory. During the Civil War, he commanded at Fort Garland, Colorado (1861-1862), was a member of the Board of Examination at Annapolis (1862-1863), and commanded at Fort Mifflin, Pennsylvania (1864). At the time of his retirement for "disability resulting from long and faithful service," he was Lieutenant-Colonel of the 6th Infantry. Cf. America on Stone , p. 175; cf. Eberstadt, 162, 910; cf. Streeter Sale, 275; cf. Tyler, The Mexican War , pp. 24-45.

        Über die Erhaltung der Kraft

      Berlin: G. Reimer, 1847. Helmholtz, Hermann von (1821-1894). Über die Erhaltung der Kraft, eine physikalische Abhandlung. . . . [4], 72pp. Berlin: G. Reimer, 1847. 214 x 133 mm. 19th century half calf, marbled boards, rebacked and corners repaired, light wear. Very good copy. 19th century engraved bookplate of Dr. Edmund Atkinson (1831-1901), professor of applied science at the Royal Military Academy, Sandhurst (Great Britain). First Edition. On the basis of this short paper, written when he was only twenty-six, Helmholtz is ranked as one of the founders, along with James Joule and J. R. von Mayer, of the principle of conservation of energy. The paper sets forth the philosophical and physical basis of the energy conservation principle. Helmholtz maintained that the scientific world view was based on two abstractions, matter and force, and since the only possible relationship that can exist among the ultimate particles of matter is a spatial one, then ultimate forces must be moving forces radically directed. This can be inferred from the impossibility of producing work continually from nothing. Helmholtz analyzed different forms of energy and different types of force and motion, grouping them into two categories, active (kinetic) and tension (potential). He also gave mathematical expression to the energy of motion, providing an experimental measure for research on all forces, including those of muscle physiology and chemistry.

        RUINED TEMPLE ON THE ISLAND OF BIGGE, NUBIA [Being an Original Hand-Coloured Lithograph From] THE HOLY LAND, SYRIA, IDUMEA, ARABIA, EGYPT AND NUBIA

      London: F.G. Moon and Co., 1847. From the Standard Folio First Edition, limited to 500 sets only. A single original hand-coloured lithographic plate drawn on stone by Louis Haghe after David Roberts' paintings done on location in 1838. Printed on a half folio sheet 17" x 13.55", the captioned image, is 14" x 10", now presented in cream mounting boards 17" x 21" glazed behind clear mylar. Beautifully hand-coloured to the highest standards of the time. An example in excellent condition, clean, fresh, beautifully preserved. FROM One of the most desirable of all travel and COLOURplate books. AN especially pretty image, the ruins beautifully rendered with colorfully dressed people scattered about them. The island of Bigge, adjacent to Philae, was part of the site of the tomb of Osiris. Only the priests from Philae were permited to even set foot on the island, let along enter the temples. We have a good number of impressive images from the Standard Folio Edition of this classic work available for purchase. As well as many views of Egypt we also have available, views of Nubia, Petra, Sinai, the Jordan, Tyre, Sidon and Baalbec. Please inquire for further details. In the course of two and a half months in 1838, traveling some 800 miles south from Cairo, Roberts recorded the monumental temple sites along the Nile in more than a hundred sketches. As the first British artist to sketch the monuments of Ancient Egypt, set on "Plains so vast...that, until you come near them, you have no idea of their magnificence," Roberts was well aware of the stir his drawings would create in London. According to John Ruskin, writing in PRAETERITA, Roberts's drawings "were the first studies ever made conscientiously by an English painter, not to exhibit his own skill, but to give true portraiture of scenes of historical and religious interest.

        DIEDORF/bei Augsburg. - Manöver. "Feld-Manöver. II. Cavalerie Attaque bei Diedorf, (im Augsburger Lager am 1ten Septb. 1846". Blick auf die Truppenübung, im Hintergrund Gesamtansicht von Diedorf.

      - Altkolorierte Lithographie von Gustav Kraus, dat. 1847, 27 x 42,5 cm. Pressler 538; Lentner 5828. - "Rechts im Mittelgrund der nach links gewandte Stab, davor ein Chevauleger und ein Kürassier von hinten sowie Zuschauer. Ganz links reiten Chevaulegers und Kürassiere eine Attacke gegeneinander. In der Mitte vorne ein nach rechts reitender Adjutant sowie ein Arzt, der einen Infanteristen versorgt" (Pressler 525, zur Vorzeichnung). - Bis auf die Einfassungslinie geschnitten und alt mit Titelei auf braunes Papier mit Tuschlinie montiert. Das Montagepapier leicht knittrig. Frisches, leuchtendes Altkolorit! - "Selten schönes Blatt in prächtigem Colorit. Militärkostümlich von grösstem Interesse" (Lentner). "Bei dem großen Augsburger Feldlager von 1846 war Gustav Kraus als Bildberichterstatter anwesend und hielt die hautsächlichen Manöver und Truppenbewegungen in Bleistiftzeichnungen fest, von denen insgesamt vierzehn erhalten sind (Nrn. 523-536, siehe dort auch die genaue Lokalisierung und Dauer des Lagers.). Fünf große Manöver und der abschließende Fackelzug in Augsburg zu Ehren des anwesenden König Ludwigs I. kamen im folgenden Jahr 1847 als repräsentative und anschauliche Lithographien heraus. Ob diese Folge geschlossen, eventuell in einem Umschlag, verkauft wurde oder in Einzelblättern, konnte nicht ermittelt werden. Jedenfalls darf man mit Sicherheit annehmen, daß die aufgrund persönlicher Anschauung entstandenen Lithographien in ihrer präzisen Treffsicherheit und ihrer dokumentarischen Genauigkeit jeden ansprechen mußten, der das Manöver aktiv oder passiv miterlebt hatte. Somit war die Folge für Gustav Kraus sicher ein geschäftlicher Erfolg. Erhalten sind sehr wenige Exemplare, was man auf das >VerbrauchenKonsum< hinweist" (Pressler S. 335). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        [PORTRAIT OF AN AFRICAN AMERICAN WOMAN, ELIZA MIDDLETON, CIRCA 1847].

      Boston. [ca. 1847].. Ninth-plate daguerreotype, 2 x 2 1/2 inches. Brass mat, framed under glass in contemporary leather case. Slight silvering of the surface area, spine of case perished. Very good. A significant, early daguerreotype portrait of an austere African-American woman, Eliza Middleton, taken in Boston in the mid-19th century. Includes a printed price list on verso, reading "Plumbe National Daguerrian Gallery, 75 Court Street, Boston, W.B. Eastman, Proprietor." As outlined by John S. Craig in volume two of his DAGUERREIAN REGISTRY, Walter B. Eastman operated the Plumbe gallery "at some point (probably 1847)," when this photograph was likely produced. John Plumbe was one of the earliest American daguerreotypists; he opened his first gallery in 1840, and then franchised his operation, with several dozen galleries operating in the late 1840's. Plumbe sold them all and went to California in 1849, but the Boston gallery retained his name until 1852. The name Eliza Middleton is inscribed in pencil in leather case. There was a substantial African-American community in Boston from Revolutionary times, centered around the north slope of Beacon Hill. One of its most prominent members was George Middleton, who served with distinction in the American Revolution, and whose house, built in 1797, still stands. While reports of Middleton's marriage status and sexual preferences vary, it is likely that Eliza was a relative, and almost certainly a member of the free African-American community in Boston, which numbered around 2000 individuals at the time. Images of African-Americans in daguerreotypes are very rare, and in this instance offer historical insight into the vibrant Boston community. John S. Craig, CRAIG'S DAGUERREIAN REGISTRY: VOLUME 2, PIONEERS AND PROGRESS, ABBOTT TO LYTLE (Torrington, Ct., 1994), p.172.

        THE FLOWERS PERSONIFIED: BEING A TRANSLATION OF GRANDVILLE'S "LES FLEURS ANIMEES " [bound with:] MODERN BOTANY FOR LADIES; AND LADIES' HORTICULTURE BY CTE FOELIX TRANSLATED FROM THE FRENCH [bound with:] SUPPLEMENT TO THE "LADIES' BOTANY " FROM THE HISTORY OF BOTANY

      New York, 1847. Additional handcolored titlepage in first volume. Quarto. Original morocco, elaborately stamped in pictorial gilt, rebacked, with original richly gilt backstrip laid down, a.e.g. Binding a bit rubbed and edgeworn. An occasional fox mark, but generally very clean internally. A very attractive copy. The first American edition of this fabulous work, featuring fine steel engravings of anthropomorphized plants in what can only be described as surreal situations, delicately handcolored. It would be difficult to single out one image which this cataloguer could label his favorite, but the personification of Hemlock, busily poisoning a rabbit, with a frog already pushing up daisies and a mouse losing its dinner in the background, or the poor Hawthorne, being pursued by clippers with legs and a leering face, are sufficient to indicate the tone of the plates. Bennett suggests that "the altogether charming and graceful text is certainly a far cry from the mess of assorted poems generally used by Americans as the background of color plate flower volumes." "The steel plates for this American edition were cut, with some changes from the Paris original, in New York. The publisher could not resist adding the names of several New York florists to the plate 'The Flower Market.' Despite its grotesque images, it is perhaps the most elaborate book of its kind from the gift book era" - STAMPED WITH A NATIONAL CHARACTER.

        HEADQUARTERS OF THE ARMY, NATIONAL PALACE OF MEXICO, SEPT. 17, 1847. GENERAL ORDERS - No. 287

      Mexico City, 1847. single folded sheet. Old vertical crease. Three tears along the central fold, resulting in loss of paper but no text. Very good. A rare copy of an important order issued by Gen. Winfield Scott just days after his victory at the Battle of Chapultepec and his taking of Mexico City. Chapultepec was the final victory in Scott's march to the Mexican capital, following victories at Cerro Gordo, Contreras, Churubusco, and Molino del Rey. Largely outnumbered against Santa Anna's forces, Scott produced a series of stunning victories leading to his capture of Mexico City and the issuance of this broadside, which seeks to establish order by proclaiming martial law in the capital. A preamble to the General Orders announces that this is a restatement, "with important additions," of Scott's order of Feb. 19, 1847, issued from Tampico, which also declared martial law. In the present order, meant to maintain order in the newly conquered city, Scott lays out the prohibitions for a wide variety of acts, including assassination, murder, poisoning, rape, assault, robbery, theft, the desecration of churches and cemeteries, and more. Significantly, he announces that such rules will apply equally to Americans as to Mexicans. He points out that these laws are important not only to guide his army, but "for the protection of the unoffending inhabitants and their property, about the theatres of military operations, against injuries on the part of the army, contrary to the laws of war." Scott further extends martial law to any part of Mexico under the control of U.S. forces. Lastly, he announces that the American army will safeguard all of the churches, monasteries, convents, inhabitants, and property in Mexico City, and announces a "contribution" of $150,000 to be imposed on the capital to pay for these services, payable in four equal installments. The order is signed in manuscript at the end by Winfield Scott's Assistant Adjutant General, H.L. Scott. Garrett locates the copy at the University of Texas at Arlington, and OCLC adds copies at the California State Library (Sutro copy) and the University of North Carolina.

        [THREE LETTERS WRITTEN BY MEXICAN-AMERICAN WAR SOLDIERS TO DAVID HOFINS OF BEDFORD, PENNSYLVANIA]

      [Various locations], 1847. Typical mailing folds, some soiling and staining. Overall very good. A collection of three letters written from soldiers in the Mexican-American War to David Hofins of Bedford, Pennsylvania. Details of each letter are as follows: 1) Langdon, John P., of "Co. B. 4th Arty. USA": Autograph letter, signed. Monclova, Mexico. Nov. 8, 1846. [4]pp. Langdon reports that his regiment is two hundred miles north of Gen. Zachary Taylor's force at Monterey and eighty miles west of the Rio Grande. He also includes rumors of the possible taking of Chihuahua with no loss of men. 2) Mann, Ben Frank: Autograph letter, signed. Island of Lobos, Mexico. Feb. 23, 1847. [3]pp. Mann writes about the American plans to land Gen. Winfield Scott's army near Vera Cruz to begin the city's siege, which began on March 9 and lasted until March 29. Postmarked from New Orleans, the letter reads in part: "As the Government intends to use it [Lobos] as a depot during the war on account of the excellent anchorage which it affords, the safest I believe on the Gulf...the two regts. from Penn, the South Carolina Regt, the Regts from Louisiana, Mississippi and New York are here, on the Island, there are a number of Regulars on the vessels in the harbor...there are upwards of thirty vessels in the Harbor. Gen Scott arrived here yesterday, and we are to embark during this week, on Friday it is supposed at the latest. Our destination is Green Island six miles below Vera Cruz where we will be landed and weather permitting....As soon as it [Vera Cruz] is captured we will be placed on the route to the Capitol." 3) Marin, Lieut. E.C.: Autograph letter, signed. St. Charles Hotel, New Orleans. April 29, 1847. [2]pp. Marin, much taken with the pleasures of life in New Orleans, writes to Hofins about the city and traveling via steamboat down the Mississippi River: "The comforts and luxuries of traveling on the Mississippi must surpass every other mode of traveling in the world...have plenty of company both male and female, music and dancing, flirtation and so forth...New Orleans, the Paris of America with the melting eyes of its 'brunettes' and the soft delicacy of its 'blondes' with all their fiery passions, for enjoyment, are enough to make man, like Adam of old, pluck from the forbidden tree.

        Manuscript Journal of First Mate on the Brig Hyder Ali sailing from New York to Montevideo, Uruguay 1847-1848

      Quarto. Quarter calf and marbled paper covered boards with blank leaves. Front board largely detached (hanging by a thread), pages modestly toned, a few page corners dogearred, but good or better. Ownership signature of "Edmund Jones, Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island. Journal. Nov. 1st, 1847 On board the Brig Hyder Ali. Geo. W. Wetherill, Master." Jones has used all 124 of the blank leaves to meticulously record the events of a journey carrying lumber from New York to Montevideo, in a reasonably legible hand. He notes his efforts to gain a berth, and then reports the weather, sailing information, and location, as well as the fishing. The Hyder Ali was caught up in a conflict between Argentina and Uruguay, and are for a while kept from their destination by a blockade, and in their turn are boarded by U.S., French, and British warships. Additionally they are fired upon and hit by cannon from Argentine shore batteries. Caught in Montevideo for a time, he provides a good description of the inhabitants, the city, and the docks. At the conclusion of the journal Jones notes the entire crew's roster, noting that one crew member was struck by a boom, knocked over board, and drowned.Our research indicates that Edmund Jones (1824-1900) never married, he was a seaman or mate on "several ocean going vessels," he lived for several years in the silver mining district of Montana, returned to New York, and died of pneumonia at Cold Spring Harbor. Apparently, he left his journal behind when he went west, and another owner's name, "Frank Long" appears, along with a note appended on the last leaf that Long has been contracted to build a blacksmith shop in Oyster Bay. A lively, better than usual, sailor's journal. .

Hadermann, W. Hieronymi, Hoffmann von Fallersleben, H. König, Wilhelm Sauerwein u.a. Herausgegeben von Eduard Duller.

      Frankfurt am Main, Johann Valentin Meidinger 1847-1850. 8 Bände (komplett). Kl. 8° (17 x 11,5 cm). Schlichte Halblederbände der Zeit (Band 1 & 8 abweichend gebunden). Eduard Duller war ein 1809 in Wien geborener, 1853 in Wiesbaden gestorbener deutsch-österreichischer Autor, Historiker und Geistlicher, der bereits im Alter von 17 Jahren als Dramatiker an die Öffentlichkeit trat. Die Demagogenverfolgung im Österreich der Metternich-Ära ließ ihn im Jahr 1830 nach Deutschland auswandern, mit verschiedenen Stationen: München, Trier, Frankfurt am Main, Darmstadt und Mainz. In Frankfurt gab er die Literaturzeitschrift \"Phönix\" heraus, die, von Karl Gutzkow besorgt, Vorabdrucke von Schriften Georg Büchners und Christian Dietrich Grabbes sowie anderer Autoren des Vormärz zum Druck brachte. Duller war gleichfalls der erste Biograph Grabbes und machte durch ein kritisches Werk über die Jesuiten von sich reden. In den vorliegenden Bänden sind um das Revolutionsjahr 1848 herum zahlreiche Kurzbiographien gesammelt, die zum revolutionären Zeitgeist passten und sich wohl im gleichen Sinn auf eine kritische oppositionelle Tradition beriefen wie eine solche zu gründen suchten. Inhalt Band 1: Ulrich von Hutten, Franz von Sickingen, Heinrich Pestalozzi, Jakob Lafitte, Moritz Arndt, Heinrich Zschokke, Latour d\'Auvergne, Friedrich Spee, Balthasar Bekker und Christian Thomasius, Joachim Lelewel, Lafayette.

        Autograph letter signed (within the text).

      "4 Hobart Place Eaton Sqa.", i. e. London, 28. IV. 1847. - 8vo. 1 p. on bifolium. To Mrs. Erskine, possibly the wife of the Scottish orientalist and historian William Erskine: "Mr. Mendelssohn presents his Compts. to Mrs. Erskine & regrets most sincerely not to be able to accept of Mrs. Erskine's very kind invitation; as he must leave London already next week he is not sure whether he will be able to thank Mrs. Erskine in person for her kind note, but he hopes to find an opportunity of doing so [.]". - Mendelssohn was known to have been in London in April 1847, to hear Jenny Lind sing in Meyerbeer's "Robert le Diable". Mendelssohn greatly admired Lind and in the 1840s she became a protégée - it was rumoured that in 1847 he had written to her to suggest an elopement, though she was married at the time. - On laid paper watermarked "J. WHATMAN", with two early horizontal folds, in very good condition. - Though not formally signed, the use of his name at the beginning is effectively a signature. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Teutsche Revolution. Gesammelte Flugschriften. XI, 547 S. 2 Bl. Hübscher marmor. Pappbd d. Z. mit farb. RSchild.

      Bern, Jenni, 1847. - Erste Ausgabe der Sammlung bisher erschienener Flugschriften. Sie "liefert in ihrer chronologischen Zusammenstellung ein Bild der politischen Entwicklung eines Teutschen, der durch den Despotismus und die Freiheit zugleich geschult wurde; sie bildet in ihrer Rücksichtslosigkeit einen angemessenen Gegensatz zu der Eunuchensprache meiner Landsleute . Die Veranlassung zur Herausgabe dieser Sammlung ist zunächst eine bloß polizeiliche. Man jagt mich wegen meiner Schriften seit mehreren Wochen wie ein wildes Thier umher und weiß ich nicht, wo diese Jagd eine Ende finden wird " (Vorwort). Teile der Auflage wurden als 'Tarnschrift' mit dem Umschlag 'Archiv für Thierheilkunde' sowie entsprechend gedrucktem Titel und fingierter 1. Lage (!) nach Leipzig geschmuggelt, jedoch von der Polizei entdeckt. Preußen stellte daraufhin den Antrag beim Bundestag, den gesamten Verlag für das Gebiet des Deutschen Bundes zu verbieten. Besonders peinlich war diese Publikation für den Bundestag, weil ein Bericht für die Bundestagsgesandten in Frankfurt (&#132;Autographirte Zirkularnote") Heinzen zugespielt worden war und auf der Rückseite des Originalumschlags (der hier, wie fast immer, nicht beigebunden ist) abgedruckt wurde. &#150; Titel mit kleinem, unauffälligem Besitzstempel.

        [TWO LETTERS WRITTEN BY A SOLDIER IN SOUTH TEXAS AND MEXICO DURING THE MEXICAN-AMERICAN WAR]

      [South Texas & Mexico]. 1847-1848.. [7]pp. Each letter a single quarto bifolium. Two horizontal and two vertical mailing folds in each, one letter with two small holes created when the seal was broken, minor fold separations, some soiling and staining. Good. Thomas Griffin writes to Miss Elizabeth Griffin, presumably his sister, who lived in New Geneva, Pennsylvania. Griffin appears to be heading to Mexico during the latter period of the war, his first letter written in the summer of 1847 and his second dated Jan. 30, presumably after his division proceeded south to Vera Cruz. This would put Griffin in Vera Cruz just days before the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo on Feb. 3, 1848. ^1) Autograph letter. "Camp at the mouth of the Rio Grande." July 22, 1847. [4]pp. Stamp-postmarked on the address panel "Brazos July 26" and "10." Griffin writes in part: ^"Here I am at the mouth of the celebrated Rio Grande, on the disputed territory & within three hundred yards of the acknowledged Mexican line. Our Division of the army arrived here yesterday afternoon. I consider yesterday one of the greatest days of my life, worth the labor of one year at least. It was then I saw for the first time the territory of Texas & Mexico." ^Immediately following is a vivid description of the Texas landscape. He then describes in detail his rough sea voyage from New Orleans to south Texas, where his unit landed at Brazos Santiago, a former port located on Brazos Island, which Gen. Taylor had established as a supply depot for the American military during the Mexican- American War. ^2) Autograph letter, signed "Thomas." Pueblo, Mx. Jan. 30, [n.y., likely 1848]. [3]pp. Stamp- postmarked on the address panel: "Vera Cruz Mexo." Griffin writes about mail delivery: "I received yours of the 17th of December about two weeks ago, by a small escort of dragoons....I don't know when we will have mail down to Vera Cruz, probably not for a week or so." He also writes glowingly of the landscape he encounters: ^"I have long had an ardent desire to travel south particularly to Mexico and South America, & the wild, romantic & strange appearance of this most interesting country has entirely surpassed my expectations. I would not have missed coming here for anything in the world. Notwithstanding I have suffered and periled a good deal & expect to peril & suffer a deal more before the war is over." ^Griffin also writes almost a page on observations of locals: how he respects the way in which the Spanish and Mexican people take care of their "aged and infirm" (relaying a scene he witnessed in which locals helped a blind man), how the "higher classes among them" show respect to ladies, and his observations on witnessing a Mexican funeral.

        Fables de Lokman, surnommé le Sage, en arabe et en français, avec la prononciation figurée, ainsi que la traduction en français, mot à mot et interlinéaire, le tout suivi d'une analyse grammaticales, de notes et d'une traduction française au net; par Léon et Henri Hélot.

      Paris, Théophile Barrois, 1847. - 8vo. (4), III, (1), 104 pp. Modern half fawn roan, smooth spine. Original yellow wrappers printed in red and blue bound within. Marbled endpapers. A new edition of the Fables of Lokman, a legendary sage of the pre-Muhammedanian era and occasionally said to have been king of Yemen, a prophet, or an Abessinian slave. This late 13th-c. adaptation of a Syrian translation of Aesop's Fables was attached to his name. Since their first publication in Europe in 1615, the "Fables" constitute an obligatory passage for learning Arabic, which explains the proliferation of versions (including those for school use). - Insignificant staining to wrapper. Chauvin III, p. 17, no. 23. Cf. Schnurrer 142. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
