        Manuscript medical ledger,

      Dover, OH, 1847-54. Dover, OH, 1847-54. <p>[Slingluff, Joseph(?)]. Manuscript medical ledger. Ca. 450pp., the first 137 with manuscript page numbers. Dover, Ohio, September 1847 - August 1854. 385 x 160 mm. Original reverse calf stamped in black, worn and rubbed. One leaf (pp. 46-47) torn out, light soiling and toning, upper portion of front flyleaf cut away but a very good example. Several manuscript sheets with text and figures laid in.</p><p>The manuscript ledger of an extremely active physician and landowner in Dover, Ohio, most likely Dr. Joseph Slingluff, who began his medical practice at Dover in 1828 and served as the town&#39;s first mayor when it was incorporated in 1842. Slingluff belonged to one of Dover&#39;s founding families: The initial settlement land (2175 acres) was purchased from Col. James Morrison of Kentucky in 1806 by Jesse Slingluff and his brother-in-law Christian Deardorff. The Deardorff and Slingluff names feature prominently in our ledger. Dover&#39;s prosperity increased dramatically with the building of the Erie Canal, as the canal&#39;s only tolling station was located there; the population grew from 46 in 1820 to nearly 600 in 1840, and the town became a flour mill and warehouse center. This prosperity is reflected in Dr. Slingluff&#39;s ledger, which records that he often saw more than 10 patients a day; the ledger also contains records of real estate owned by the doctor (including a small plat map) and the construction costs of his house. At the back are two pages recording difficult obstetric cases. Mansfield, The History of Tuscarawas County, Ohio (1884), p. 543 and passim. </p>

        Kapelle auf dem Alten Friedhof in Karlsruhe, 1847

      . Bleistift und Aquarell in Braun auf Papier, unten rechts monogrammiert und datiert: "WL. Juli 47.", unten links bezeichnet: "Capelle auf dem Friedhof in Carlsruhe", 30,3 x 22,9 cm. Als der junge Architekturstudent Friedrich Wilhelm Ludwig 1847 die Kapelle auf dem Alten Friedhof in Karlsruhe zeichnete, war das Gebäude gerade erst zehn Jahre alt. 1837 wurde es fertiggestellt. Der Architekt war der Weinbrenner-Schüler und spätere Karlsruher Professor Friedrich Eisenlohr. Ludwigs malerische Ansicht, die architektonische Genauigkeit mit ästhetischer Durcharbeitung paart, zeugt somit von dem Originalzustand der Kapelle, was von besonderem Interesse ist, da sie am 24. April 1944 stark zerstört wurde. 1948 wurde sie wieder aufgebaut und als Garnisonkirche der amerikanischen Armee eingeweiht. In dieser Ansicht der Kapelle tritt das konstruktionstheoretische Erscheinungsbild der Kapelle deutlich hinter dem malerischen Aspekt zurück. Die zarte Aquarellierung in Braun und die kleinen, nervösen Bleistiftstriche konzentrieren sich bereits auf die ersten Anzeichen des baulichen Alters. Die Verlagerung der Kapelle von dem Mittelpunkt des Blattes hin an den Rand trägt zur Abkehr von der rein architektonischen Bestandsaufnahme ebenso bei, wie die leicht geöffnete Tür, die dem ganzen Blatt einen anekdotischen Charakter verleiht.

        THE PUBLIC MEN OF THE REVOLUTION: INCLUDING EVENTS FROM THE PEACE OF 1783 TO THE PEACE OF 1815. IN A SERIES OF LETTERS

      Philadelphia: Carey and Hart, 1847. Philadelphia: Carey and Hart, 1847. First Edition. Hardcover. Some chipping to the head of the spine. Near Fine. Original blindstamped brown cloth. Illustrated with a frontispiece portrait of the author. First published in 1834, this is an enlarged edition with a biographical sketch of the author by his son. Howes S-1130; Sabin 93559: "An attack on Thomas Jefferson and a defense of the Federalist party." Franklin Delano Roosevelt&#39;s copy with his bold SIGNATURE "Franklin D. Roosevelt/Hyde Park" on the front endpaper along with the notation "Very fine copy." Roosevelt was sympathetic toward Jefferson, identifying with him as a leader who brought the government back into the hands of the people and who fashioned a government that served the best interests of the people rather than the interests of the privileged. On the pastedown opposite Roosevelt&#39;s signature is a pencil inscription by the former owner, A. Boyd Hamilton, State Printer of Pennsylvania in the mid-nineteenth century, dated 1887 presenting the book to his son. Hamilton&#39;s signature dated 1847 is also on the title page in ink. A fine example of a book from FDR&#39;s library with distinctly American content including much on George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.

        HANDWRITTEN LOG OF THE AMERICAN BARK "ABBOT LORD," 1847-1848: An Unfortunate Vessel.

      1847. Original manuscript. Leather-backed boards. Very Good. 104pp, written in ink by at least three hands, few pencilled notations. The first two voyages (New Orleans to Liverpool, Liverpool to Boston) were under Jotham Blaisdell, Master. The others (Boston to Havana, New Orleans to Liverpool, Liverpool to Boston) were under Master Francis Nason. The trips involved rough passages, a leaking ship, stowaways, a drowning, desertions, &c. Bound in leather-backed marbled boards, scuffed, hole at top of spine, otherwise sound. 13" x 8 Capt. Blaisdell is the more literate and descriptive log-keeper, noting not only weather, wind, and sea conditions, but also which sails were used when. We read of cargo-loading and -unloading, pilots boarding, activities of the crew and the few passengers, &c. Nason&#39;s hand is legible, but sometimes difficult. ~ The bark "Abbot Lord" has sprung leaks previously on an 1846 voyage, according to documents at Mystic Seaport Museum. By the start of this log, her troubles are far from over: numerous gales, bad leaks, stowaways, problems with cargo and provisions, desertions of many crewmen, and three shipboard deaths, all are recorded. Here are just a few of the quotable passages. On the first day out, "...two lads made their appearance that had stowed themselves away. An Irish fishing boat coming alongside put them aboard...." "...child was born to Patrick Welch...sex female...." "...died this day Mary Conland, aged 40...." "...came to anchor at Deer Island," then lay in quarantine. "...leaking badly, the pumps constantly attended to...shiping mutch water...." "...found stowed in the cargo one boy...found below, stowed away...three boys...." "...gale again, cabin filled with water...sea wet the provisions...distroyed...everything adrift...." "...men came aft saying they could not stand to Pump being wore out...." "...came to anchor in the port of Corck...survey recommended Discharging the cargo...towed to Passage [Passage West, a port town in County Cork]...two men absent...." During the next few days, five more men go "absent," including the cook. After extensive repairs at Passage, during which lumpers unload and reload the cargo, the Bark sails toward Boston, encountering heavy gales, putting in at Falmouth for five days, &c. Six more men desert ship, &c., &c. It is worth noting that in 1845, the brave ship "Abbot Lord" had carried some 175 starving immigrants from Bremen to New Orleans, where they sought to settle amid peace and plenty.

Very rare edition complete with the Rufus Sage map. Considered by Howes and other authorities the "best edition" because of its inclusion of Rufus B. Sage's superb map of the West, which otherwise appeared only in Sage's book of the preceding year. It is far rarer than the regular Fremont map, which it resembles in many respects.

        Sculpture Illustrations. With a Dissertation on Sculpture and Sculptors

      ated from Copac) - London - T. Dewhurst, 1847. ated from Copac) - London - T. Dewhurst, 1847 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A scarce Victorian work on sculpture. With a frontispiece and numerous further tissue-guarded plates. With sections on famous sculptures and their sculptors. Robert William Sievier, (17941865), engraver, sculptor, and scientist. To improve his knowledge of the figure Sievier learned to model in clay and studied anatomy under Joshua Brookes. Subsequently, around 1823, he gave up engraving in favour of sculpture. His portrait busts included those of Lord Chancellor Eldon (exh. RA, 1825), Sir Thomas Lawrence (1830; Soane Museum, London), and Prince Albert, the prince consort (1842; Royal Collection). He also executed several memorial statues, including those of the physician Edward Jenner (1825; Gloucester Cathedral) and William Harcourt, third Earl Harcourt (1832; St Michael, Stanton Harcourt, Oxfordshire), and a large number of church monuments. He exhibited at the Royal Academy from 1822 to 1844, at the British Institution from 1825 to 1831, and at the Society of British Artists from 1829 to 1843. Sievier&#39;s portraiture was characterized by a bold naturalism which sometimes tended towards exaggeration, especially in the depiction of facial expressions and fleshy forma manner in which his work is comparable to that of his contemporary Samuel Joseph. He had an eye for detailfor example, in his reliefs for monumentsgained from his training as an engraver. In the latter part of his life Sievier abandoned sculpture and devoted himself to science, being involved in rubber production and in the early development of electric telegraphy. According to Redgrave he was of an active inventive mind and distinguished also by his manners and power of conversation (Redgrave, Artists, 395). He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in 1841. DNBCondition: In a blindstamped cloth binding. Externally generally sound although rubbed, front joint just starting. Institutional label to spine. Internally, firmly bound. Bright with light scattered foxing. Library label to front free-endpaper, ink stamps and annotations to frontis, title, and within.

His three humane goals are stated on the first pages of this book: "The recovery of the curable, the improvement of the incurable, the comfort and happiness of all the patients, should therefore steadily be kept in view by the architect from the moment in which he commences his plan; and should be the no less constant guide of the governing bodies of asylums in every law and regulation which they make" (pp.1-2).

        [LENGTHY AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM JAMES H. CARLETON TO GEORGE EVANS, CONCERNING AFFAIRS IN THE MEXICAN- AMERICAN WAR]

      Buena Vista. July 21, 1847.. Buena Vista. July 21, 1847.. [16]pp., about 3500 words. Quarto, on folded folio sheets. Old fold lines. Very minor soiling and wear. Near fine. A very long letter regarding the Mexican-American War, written by a member of General Wool&#39;s staff to a friend back home in Maine. Carleton, a career army officer, author of a book on the Battle of Buena Vista, and ardent supporter of Zachary Taylor, describes his unit&#39;s march to Mazapil following some false information about a guerilla attack: "the first time American troops had been in Zacatecas." Following that he speculates on Santa Anna&#39;s troop strength and fortifications: "We have no news from Gen. Scott. By the last advices he has not pushed on his main army beyond Puebla. We learn that Santa Anna has fortified and prepared the capital for a vigorous defense, having some 12,000 regulars and some 20,000 irregular troops, with a large number of cannon. No doubt his strength is greatly magnified. If, even, he has that number, they cannot all be properly armed, much less disciplined and skilled in the use of their weapons. Such a force on a plain should be destroyed by 8000 American regular troops....Gen. Taylor could with 8000 regulars whip 40,000 such troops as Mexico can now bring in the field. His name is worth a third more than Gen. Scott&#39;s." He writes that he recently dined with General Taylor, and describes Taylor&#39;s plans for a full offensive. He adds that "the utmost good feeling does not subsist between Gen. Scott and Gen. Taylor," who has "never been satisfied with Gen. Scott&#39;s course in stripping him of his veteran troops and leaving him with only the volunteers who had never been under fire." Additionally, Carleton describes his own efforts to write a history, published the following year, of the Battle of Buena Vista, which Taylor had commanded at in late February, 1847. He also praises Taylor&#39;s performance at the battle and its demoralizing effect on Scott: "We feel very certain that nothing but death can interpose to prevent Gen. Taylor from being President....As a man of strong practical sense, good judgment, stern integrity, and with an earnest singleness of purpose, the good of the whole country, he hardly has an equal." James Henry Carleton (1814-73) was a native of Maine, commissioned as a lieutenant in the U.S. Army in 1839. He served in the Mexican-American War and later became a general, commanding Union troops in New Mexico during the Civil War. The letter&#39;s recipient, George Evans (1797- 1867) was a former U.S. Senator from Maine, his term having just ended at the beginning of 1847. He practiced law and continued to be politically active after his failed reelection bid.
