        A voyage of discovery and research in the Southern and Antarctic Regions, during the years 1839-43.

      London Murray 1847 - First edition. 2 volumes, 8vo., lii, [4], 366; v-x (i-iv not published), [4], 447 pp., 8 maps (3 folding, 1 full-page), 8 lithograph plates (1 folding, this lightly foxed), 19 text illustrations, contemporary calf, spines richly gilt, red and green morocco labels, neatly rebacked preserving spines, all edges gilt, a handsome set. The account of the first voyage to enter what is known today as the Ross Sea, the first to sight the Admiralty Mountains, the first to see Victoria Land, Ross Island, Mounts Erebus and Terror, and the Ross Ice Shelf, amongst other momentous discoveries. Once this account became public, no one could doubt there was a great southern continent of immense proportions to be explored. Ross was born in London, the nephew of Sir John Ross, under whom he entered the navy in 1812, accompanying him on Sir John's first Arctic voyage in search of a Northwest Passage in 1818. Between 1819 and 1827, Ross took part in four Arctic expeditions under Sir William Parry, and in 1829 to 1833, again served under his uncle on Sir John's second Arctic voyage. Between 1839 and 1843, Ross commanded an Antarctic expedition comprising the vessels HMS Erebus and HMS Terror and charted much of the coastline of the continent. Francis Crozier was second in command of the expedition and commanded HMS Terror. Support for the expedition had been arranged by Francis Beaufort, hydrographer of the Navy and a member of several scientific societies. On the expedition was Joseph Dalton Hooker, who had been invited along as assistant surgeon. Erebus and Terror were bomb vessels – an unusual type of warship named after the mortar bombs they were designed to fire and constructed with extremely strong hulls, to withstand the recoil of the mortars, which were to prove of great value in thick ice. In 1841, James Ross discovered the Ross Sea, Victoria Land, and the volcanoes Mount Erebus and Mount Terror, which were named for the expedition's vessels. They sailed for 250 nautical miles (460 km) along the edge of the low, flat-topped ice shelf they called the Victoria Barrier, later named "Ross Ice Shelf" in his honour. In the following year, he attempted to penetrate south at about 55°W, and explored the eastern side of what is now known as James Ross Island, discovering and naming Snow Hill Island and Seymour Island. It is interesting to note that Ross reported that Admiralty Sound (which he named Admiralty Inlet appeared to Ross to have been blocked by glaciers at its southern end. He was elected to the Royal Society in 1848 and knighted in 1844. Taurus 9; Rosove 276.A1. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      London, Chapman and Hall, 1847. 8vo. Original purple pebble-grained cloth, lettered and ornamented in gilt, all edges gilt; pp. viii, 436, steel-engraved frontispiece, retaining tissue guard; hinges reinforced, light wear to extremities, light offsetting from endpapers; otherwise very good with school prize inscription to front free endpaper. First English edition, the rare issue with frontispiece. What had been planned as a geological expedition turned into an ethnographic and sociological reconnaissance tour of Southern Russia and adjacent provinces. Ignace Xavier Morand Hommaire de Hell, an engineer who had built a suspension bridge in Istanbul and a lighthouse on the Black Sea coast for the Ottoman Empire travelled with his wife Adèle Hériot, who contributed much to the narrative. A few years after Astolphe de Custine's sensational report on Russia had been smuggled out, Hommaire de Hell states that 'Our work is published under no man's patronage; we have kept ourselves independent of all extraneous influence; and in frankly pointing out what struck us as faulty in the social institutions of the Muscovite empire, we think we evince our gratitude for the hospitable treatment we received in Russia ...' (preface). Atabey 592 (without frontispiece); not in Blackmer.

About FÉLIX-ARCHIMÈDE POUCHET (from Wikipedia): ******Félix Archimède Pouchet (b. 1800 d. 1872) was a French naturalist and a LEADING PROPONENT of the SPONTANEOUS GENERATION of LIFE from NON LIVING MATERIALS, and as such an opponent of Louis Pasteur's germ theory. From 1828 he was director of the Rouen Jardin des Plantes. In 1838 he became professor at the School of Medicine at Rouen. In 1847, Pouchet effectively launched the study of the physiology of cytology. His major scientific work Hétérogénie was published in 1859. He also wrote a layperson's encyclopedia The Universe, published in 1870, which gives an overview of the sciences, but in which Pouchet ridicules Louis Pasteur's theories. Pouchet was 60 years old while Louis Pasteur was 37 years old when the heart of the debate about spontaneous generation began. Their opinions on generation originated from two competing theories. Pouchet believed in HETEROGENESIS, which assumed that NEW LIVING ORGANISMS CAME FROM INANIMATE OBJECTS, SUCH AS AIR. The parents of these new organisms were not the same species as the new organism. Pasteur supported the germ theory that said microorganisms arose from germs and those microorganisms came from parents of the same species. He supported the idea that germs were mostly everywhere, including things like air and those germs explained the appearance of microorganisms on different inanimate things.****** You can read much more about Félix-Archimède Pouchet on Wikipedia and elsewhere on the Internet. I believe this is the perfect time to bring the SPONTANEOUS GENERATION OF LIFE theory back to life, given our ruling government no longer believes in real science. Good .

        UNUSUALLY DECORATIVE SEAWEED ALBUM

      "OCEAN GEMS" Sold for Mullers Orphan House near Bristol. Thirty six examples of seaweeds, arranged rather decoratively on paper, and mounted into album leaves [together with two unmounted examples]. Bound into half calf album approx 25.5 cm x 18 cm with brown book cloth to the boards. Gilt lined with title to front board. The manuscript frontis has "sold for Mullers Orphan House near Bristol" in brown ink to one corner. This is an unusually decorative album in that the specimens have been arranged to show their beauty rather than their scientific interest. Some of the examples arranged into circular patterns must have been extraordinarily difficult to arrange. The compiler of this album is anonymous, but there is a great deal of information available online about the Müllers Orphan Houses. Founded by the Prussian George Müller who came to England in 1829, and Bristol in 1835, he began his charitable work founding day schools for Bristol children. In 1826 he opened his first orphanage for 26 girls, funded by donations and gifts. It seems likely that amongst his supporters was someone who was making seaweed albums for sale , to raise funds. In 1847 first purpose built orphanage was started on a seven acre site on Ashley Down, near Bristol, opening in 1849. Other orphanages were opened in subsequent years, but since the inscription reads "sold for Mullers Orphan House" (in the singular), we date this album to somewhere between 1847-1851. A lovely example of a seaweed album.

        Operation performed during Insensibility, produced by the Inhalation of Sulphuric Ether (Communicated by Francis Boott, M.D.). To the Editior of The Lancet (pp.5-8, 16-17).

      Lancet, 1847/1. - London, George Churchill, 1847, 4, 702 pp., Halbledereinband der Zeit. FIRST ENGLISH EDITION, and the first publication on this side of the Atlantic, of the first account of ether anaesthesia. See G&M 5651, the appearance of this paper in the Boston Medical & Surgical Journal some six weeks previously. This was thus the first account published in Europe of an operation performed with the aid of ether anaesthesia. "The original title "Insensibility during surgical operations produced by inhalation" as given in the Boston. Med. & Surg. J. was not given. Jacob Bigelow, the father of H.J. Bigelow, wrote on 28 November to Francis Boott of London telling him of Morton's discovery and enclosing the text of his son's communication as it had appeared in the Boston Daily Advertiser. Boott forwarded Jacob Bigelow's letter and H. J. Bigelow's paper to The Lancet which published them both in their number for 2 January 1847. Appended to the reprint was a letter from Robert Liston to Dr. Boott dated 21 December 1846 saying that on that day he had successfully used ether during an amputation at the knee, thus recording the first operation under ether anaesthesia in Europe. Liston had learned of Bigelow's letter to Boott on Saturday, the 19th, and carried out his first operation on Monday, the 21st!" (Fulton & Stanton). The first reference to ether in the British press is a short paragraph in the London Medical Gazette for 18 December 1846, and the second is in The Lancet for 26 December. The two are evidently based on the same source, and are statements only (reprinted by Fulton & Stanton), rather than full accounts.In The Lancet for 9 January 1847, further correspondence (pp. 49-51) on Bigelow's patent is included, and in the issue for 16 January "a long and well written editorial appears excoriating both Jackson and Morton for attempting the patent" and pp. 77-80 give accounts of operations under anaesthesia, including an illustration of "Mr. Hooper's Ether Inhalator, constructed according to Dr. Boott and Mr. Robinson's Instructions". John F. Fulton & Madeline E. Stanton, The Centennial of Surgical Anesthesia, pp.36-39Following other Milestones of Anesthesia we find in this rare volume:Plomley, Francis: Operations upon on the Eye (8pp.134-135)."John Snow and AE. Guedel are known for assigning stages to anesthesia the following article, by Francis Plomley, is an earlier description of these levels. The pretending on the part of the physicians that the already completed operation had not yet been undertaken typified the wonder that was associated with the newness of the invention conservations like that described in the second paragraph are to be found in many early articles. Plomley's definition of the third stage is accurate. It is now felt, however, that in the second stage "three exists," as he says, "a perfect consciousness of everything said or done." His remarks in the final paragraph relating in this article to the site of action of the ether is interesting" Cole, Milestone of Anesthesia, Nr. 7 Wells, Horace: Fatal Operation under the Influence of Ether (pp.340-342)."The world owes much to Horace Wells (185-1848). He conceived the idea of surgical anesthesia, experimented on himselfe and others, and demonstrated anesthesia publicly for all to see. He succeeded in the sense that the failure of his demonstration was the failure of his audience to appreciate the earth-shaking nature of what they were being shown, and in the sense that the final success was an immediate and direct result if his work. He published fefenses in the United States, England, and France.." Cole, Milestone of Anesthesia, Nr. 8 Snow, John: Apparatus for Inhaling the Vapour of Ether (pp.120-121, 1 Abb.)

        Anaesthetic Agents, their Mode of Exhibition and Physiological Effects

      Contained in:: Transactions of the American Medical Association, Vol. I, pp. 197-214. 1847. paperback. 3. 8vo. 403 pp. 5 engraved plates (2 colored); badly water-stained throughout. Original printed paper wrappers; water-stained, neatly re- backed. Booklabel of Haskell F. Norman; bookplate of Andras Gedeon. Good. RARE. . Early Anaesthesia: The first volume of the Transactions of the American Medical Association, very much concerned with the medical breakthrough of anesthetics. Bigelow's paper is just one in the Report of the Committee on Surgery (pp. 159-224) containing an introduction and six different sections. “The committee considered in detail the various anesthetic agents. According to the report, some surgeons were afraid to use anesthesia in their surgical operations, feeling that the advantages afforded by the relief of pain might be offset by the risks involved [however] even at this early date, authors of this report felt that a large group of surgeons were wholly in favor of anesthesia. The authors did, however, admit that some surgeons would restrict the use of these agents to severe operations, after the introduction of ether anesthesia in Boston it was not until several months later that the method became generally popular in other communities in the United States. The favorable reports of its use in Boston and in Europe made for the more extensive use in American communities in 1847 and 1848. The dangers of etherization were also considered. In some cases it was thought that convulsions, prolonged stupor, intense cerebral excitement, alarming depression of the vital powers and asphyxia apparently were caused by the inhalation of ether and chloroform. Secondary effects attributed to inhalation in a few cases were bronchitis, pneumonia and inflammation of the brain. Interestingly enough, according to this report (p. 190), ether was considered to be a safer drug than chloroform.” [Keys]. References: Keys, pp. 36-37; Fulton & Stanton, Anesthesia, VII, p. 191.

This Two Volume 1847 First Edition Set with the ORIGINAL ATLAS with its 20 HAND COLORED PLATES is SCARCE. About FÉLIX-ARCHIMÈDE POUCHET (from Wikipedia): ******Félix Archimède Pouchet (b. 1800 d. 1872) was a French naturalist and a LEADING PROPONENT of the SPONTANEOUS GENERATION of LIFE from NON LIVING MATERIALS, and as such an opponent of Louis Pasteur's germ theory. From 1828 he was director of the Rouen Jardin des Plantes. In 1838 he became professor at the School of Medicine at Rouen. In 1847, Pouchet effectively launched the study of the physiology of cytology. His major scientific work Hétérogénie was published in 1859. He also wrote a layperson's encyclopedia The Universe, published in 1870, which gives an overview of the sciences, but in which Pouchet ridicules Louis Pasteur's theories. Pouchet was 60 years old while Louis Pasteur was 37 years old when the heart of the debate about spontaneous generation began. Their opinions on generation originated from two competing theories. Pouchet believed in HETEROGENESIS, which assumed that NEW LIVING ORGANISMS CAME FROM INANIMATE OBJECTS, SUCH AS AIR. The parents of these new organisms were not the same species as the new organism. Pasteur supported the germ theory that said microorganisms arose from germs and those microorganisms came from parents of the same species. He supported the idea that germs were mostly everywhere, including things like air and those germs explained the appearance of microorganisms on different inanimate things.****** You can read much more about Félix-Archimède Pouchet on Wikipedia and elsewhere on the Internet. I believe this is the perfect time to bring the SPONTANEOUS GENERATION OF LIFE theory back to life, given our ruling government no longer believes in real science. Good .

        Essai sur l'Histoire des Arabes.

      1847 - First edition. With 15 folding genealogical tables. 3 vols. 8vo. Contemporary quarter calf with mottled paper-covered boards, red morocco labels with gilt lettering to spines; upper joint of vol. 2 splitting at head, very good otherwise. Mild, scattered foxing throughout (especially to first and last pages of each volume). xii, 424; 702; [iv], 603, [1]blank pp. Paris, Firmin Didot frères, A nice copy of Perceval's early history of the Arab tribes. The first two volumes describe the period from the end of Jahiliyyah to the Hegira of 622 (Julian calendar). The third volume then accounts for the period after the Hegira through to the early Muslim conquests. A remarkable achievement for the time, the Essai. was celebrated as ?a trustworthy guide through a tangled mass of tradition? (Encyclopaedia Brittanica 11th ed., 1911.V, 558.). Later scholarship reflects that Perceval, eager to form a fluid history, too readily mixed fact and fiction in his weaving together of 7th and 8th century Arabic sources. One 20th century reviewer states that his approach did not necessarily lead to an accurate historical account, but rather ?the retrospective self view of seventh and eighth-century Arabs? (p.75. International Journal of Middle East Studies. Volume 3, Issue 1. January, 1972). Provenance: The Library of the Ducs de Luynes from the Château of Dampierre. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

He relates he was suddenly overwhelmed by words and images that produced the beginnings of his composition: "Obwohl ich mich fürs erste nur in großen Zügen mit dem Inhalt der Gedichtsammlung vertraut machen konnte, stand sofort win neues Werk, ein Bühnenwerk mit Sing- und Tanzchören, nur den Bildern und Texten folgend, in Gedanken vor mir. Noch am selben Tag hatte ich eine Paticell-Skizze vom ersten Chor 'O Fortuna' entworfen. Nach einer schlaflosen Nacht, in der ich mich in der umfangreichen Gedichtsammlung fast verloren hätte, war auch ein zweiter Chor, 'Fortune plango vulnera' enstanden, und am Ostermorgen war ein dritter, Ecce gratum, zu Papier gebracht." ; laid in is a copy, in red illustrated paper wrappers, of the brochure for the concert, "Musik auf Schloss Kirchheim 1972 harmonia mundi Konzerte", SIGNED BY CARL ORFF on the title page of the brochure; the volume of Carmina Burana is an important musical source and Carl Orff collectible ; rare ; FINE; FINE [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Gulistan i masarrat, or Hada'ik ul-ma'ani. A cento from Persian poets.

      Mustafa Muhammad Khan Mustafa,, Gawnpor 1847 - Lithograph printing, [10], 562 pp. + 8 pp. Persian text, , cover slightly rubbed, copy presented by Mrs. Miles to Bath Public Reference Library in memory of her husband the late Colonel Samuel Barrett Miles, copy in very good condition. Sa’di, a Persian poet and prose writer (ca. 1210- 1291 or 1292), widely recognized as one of the greatest masters of the classical literary tradition. Sa?di lived through one of the most eventful and traumatic centuries in the history of Asia and the Middle East. The expansion and consolidation of Mongol power was marked by the destruction of old centers of culture and civilization, the upheaval of established political institutions, and the mass migration of populations. Mere survival demanded luck, wit, determination, and practical savvy. The Gulistan "The Rose Garden") is a landmark of Persian literature, perhaps its single most influential work of prose. Written in 1258 CE, it is one of two major works of the Persian poet Sa'di, considered one of the greatest medieval Persian poets. It is also one of his most popular books, and has proved deeply influential in the West as well as the East. The Gulistan is a collection of poems and stories, just as a rose-garden is a collection of roses. It is widely quoted as a source of wisdom. The well-known aphorism still frequently repeated in the western world, about being sad because one has no shoes until one meets the man who has no feet "whereupon I thanked Providence for its bounty to myself" is from the Gulistan.

      Paris, Masson, 1847. in-folio (mm 485x340), 9 litografie ( I-IX di cui 1 a colori e due a doppia pagina) e 3 litografie a colori di C. Castan (num A-C), brossura editoriale in mezza tela verde, fregi e titolo entro cornice al piatto anteriore, al centro di quello posteriore motto “Alere Flamma” (lievi tracce d'usura e qualche macchia). Le planches sono vedute, spaccati e tavole tecniche interamente dedicate al ghiacciaio dell'Aar. Questo rarissimo Album è il risultato degli studi che Agassiz compì sulle Alpi bernesi, dove costruì una capanna e vi abitò per un po' di tempo per avere la possibilità di compiere delle ricerche sulla conformazione e sui movimenti del ghiaccio. Parte delle sue osservazioni confluirono nel 1840 negli "Etudes sur les glaciers", di cui il presente Album è evidentemente una integrazione. La sua estrema rarità, di gran lunga superiore a quella degli Etudes, è dovuta al fatto che l'autore, mentre l'opera era in fase di pubblicazione, partì definitivamente per gli Stati Uniti e non fece mai più ritorno in Europa. Agassiz quindi non potè più seguirne la stampa, la diffusione e il completamento editoriale (essendo questa una "première partie") rendendo questo Album quasi introvabile. In perfetto stato di conservazione, assai fresco.. Perret 0020..

        Liturgical Services: Liturgies and Occasional Forms of Prayer Set Forth in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth [Signed by John Pascoe Fawkner]

      Cambridge University Press, Cambridge 1847 - JOHN PASCOE FAWKNER'S COPY of Liturgical Services. Floridly SIGNED in full FOUR TIMES by JOHN PASCOE FAWKNER in black ink. The 4 signatures appear on the title page, the first text page (p.3), in the middle of the book (p.347), & final text page (p.695) where he has added "May 10 '54 Sydney". All four signatures are bright & clear, though the title-page signature has been ink-stamped, obscuring the "Fawkner" portion. John Pascoe Fawkner (1792-1869), founder of Melbourne, Victoria, Australia; early pioneer, businessman, politician. He is the namesake of two Melbourne suburbs, Fawkner & Pascoe Vale. This is his copy of Liturgical Services: Liturgies & Occasional Forms of Prayer Set Forth in the Reign of Queen Elizabeth. Edited for The Parker Society, by the Rev. William Keatinge Clay. FIRST EDITION, published 1847. From the preface: "The present volume comprises two Litanies, the English Prayer Book of 1559, the Godly Prayers, the Ordinal of 1559, the Latin Prayer Book of 1560, the New Calendar of 1561, & many Occasional Forms of Prayer set forth, chiefly by public authority, in the latter portion of the sixteenth century". Bound in publisher's original brown blind-embossed pebbled cloth, with bright gilt arms of The Parker Society to front board, gilt lettering to spine, blind-ruled spine, yellow endpapers. NOTE: A FAIR copy only. Cancelled Ex-Library copy with usual library markings (QC, UofM bookplate to front pastedown, plus several unobtrusive ink stamps internally [to 12 pages] from two libraries: Queen's College, University of Melbourne, & Congressional College Library, Melbourne), front board & ffep detached (but present), rear board loose, lacking top portion of spine (3 x 3cm), old library labels to spine, wear to spine gutters, much handling wear, faint marginal staining to first couple of pages, otherwise a solid hardcover reading copy. Internally VG. The value obviously lies in the fact that it was Fawkner's own personal copy of a much read/used book, with his ownership signatures. Fawkner lived a fascinating life. "He was born in 1792 in Cripplegate, London. His father was convicted of receiving stolen goods & in 1801 was sentenced to fourteen years transportation. With his mother & younger sister, Elizabeth, 11-year old John accompanied his father to the new settlement to be formed in Bass Strait. They joined H.M.S. Calcutta at Portsmouth & sailed on 29 April 1803 in company with the Ocean, carrying a number of free settlers & stores. After Port Phillip was abandoned & the convicts & settlers were moved to Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania), the Fawkners lived in a primitive hut at the new settlement on Sullivan's Cove, suffering great hardship & continuing shortages of food. In 1835 Fawkner financed a party of free settlers from Van Diemen's Land, to sail to the mainland in his ship, Enterprise. His party sailed to Port Phillip Bay & up the Yarra River to found a settlement which became the city of Melbourne. Fawkner himself landed at Hobson's Bay in October 1835 & at once began to lay the foundations of a fortune that grew to £20,000 in his first four years on the mainland. In January 1838 he added to his trade of hotel-keeping that of newspaper proprietor. In 1839 Fawkner also added to his already considerable land holdings a 780-acre property known as Pascoe Vale. As a man of property & influence, Fawkner took an active & leading part in the political & social struggles of the time. Fawkner died on 4 September 1869 at his home in Smith Street, Collingwood, the grand old man of contemporary Victoria." (largely from: Hugh Anderson, 'Fawkner, John Pascoe', Australian Dictionary of Biography, Vol. 1, MUP, 1966, pp.368-370). Thick heavy volume. Printed at The University Press, Cambridge.

        "Discovery of a new anaesthetic agent, more efficient than sulphuric ether".; In: The London Medical Gazette. New Series. Vol. V

      London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1847. 8vo. Simpson's paper is on pp. 934-37. Entire volume: [1], 1172 pp. Contemporary half calf, marbled boards, black morocco lettering-piece. "In an attempt to find an anesthetic less irritating than ether, Simpson discovered the advantages of chloroform. He had previously used ether with great benefit in midwifery, but now substituted chloroform, being the first to do so" (Garrison-Morton-Norman 5657). The paper appeared simultaneously in The Lancet (v. 2, 1847, p. 549). First announcements of surgical operations under general anesthesia appeared in October 1846. Since that announcement, Simpson began to search for substances as good as or better than the American ethyl ether. While rifling through papers on his desk, he found a vial of a colorless liquid sent to him by the German apothecary, Justus von Leibig. It was chloroform, and Simpson and his associates, Keith and Duncan, successfully utilized it. Simpson immediately recommended its use to alleviate pains in childbirth. He presented the results of his experiments with chloroform to the Medico-Chirurgical Sociery in Edinburgh on 10 November 1847; they published his scarce first report. This is his second report on chloroform. On page 906 in the volume is the preliminary announcement: "Discovery of a substitute for ether vapour." "Chloroform's considerable advantages over sulphuric ether, enumerated by Simpson in his paper, caused it to rapidly displace ether as a universal anesthetic. Its use in obstetrics was however denounced from various conservative quarters as immoral and hostile to the laws of religion, labor pains being considered God's punishment for Eve's sins, and Simpson was forced to embark "on a long publishing campaign to convert the opposition. His most famous non-scientific argument was that God Himself had been the first anesthetist when He 'caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam' before bringing forth Eve from his rib. Simpson's efforts were finally established by the medical establishment when Queen Victoria chose to take chloroform for the birth of Prince Leopold in 1853" (Norman 1945, of Simpson's first paper, Edinburgh, 1847).

        Newgate. A romance. FIRST EDITION.

      Printed & published by E. Lloyd. [1847] Illus.; 'Complete' written in ink on titlepage. Rebound in half black morocco ascribing authorship to Prest. A good copy.Ono 501, where it is assigned to Prest. BL only on Copac. In 97 pts with crude woodcuts. Authorship is now assigned to Rymer; chains of attributed works and advertisements lead to the 'Author of Ada ...'. The work is in fact a series of short tales, at which Rymer was adept, gathered together in a framework provided by a first-person narrator finding old manuscripts in a former offal cellar below a butcher's shop in Newgate Street. (Is this a possible echo of The String of Pearls?) The first story 'The Shadow of Death; or, The Coffin Cell' was later expanded and published separately as 'Captain Hawk; or, The Shadow of Death', 1851 (May Boyes; or The Shadow of Death) which can also now be assigned to Rymer rather than E.C. Grey. The preface is dated November 1847 and this copy has the date of publication of each part added in ink from no.1, 7 Feb 1846 - no.76 on 19 June 1847. The last story from no. 85 has a prominent drop-head title 'The Poisoner; or, The perils of matrimony' with a large illustration, and may well have been available separately. A damp-marked plate by George Cruikshank of criminals is bound in at front, and another illustration at end.

        LEAVES OUT OF THE BOOK OF A COUNTRY GENTLEMAN, By T. N. Parker, Esq., A. M. A hundred Copies of this Book are published - 50 for distribution, and for Sale at 10s. each.

      Printed and sold by W. Price; Longman and Co. London; and Eddowes and Leake, Shrewsbury., Oswestry 1847 - Folio. 12.25 x 19 inches. vi + 22 pp. letterpress. Bound in half morocco over marbled boards. Scattered foxing throughout but otherwise a very good copy. Inscribed W. Ormsby Gore from his friend the Author, at top of title. Illustrated by 32 pages of engraved plates (all double), including 2 pages of copperplates at end. A privately published compilation of the author's lifetime interests, as illustrated in plates of his inventions with detailed descriptions added. Thomas Netherton Parker (1772-1848) graduated MA from Oxford, 1795 and later moved to Sweeney Hall, Oswestry. His interests were wide ranging, including religion, poor relief and the writing of poetry; he published a number of rural titles throughout the first half of the nineteenth century, including the subjects of cubic measures, the law of tithes, cottage designs and economy. Most of this material here was previously unpublished, except for what appeared in his Essay on Gates of 1804 and possibly in An Essay on.a Turnpike Gate (1816). Adding to 'my favourite subject of Gates,' Parker includes 'Turnpike Gates to bring up the rear, that subject being at a discount, since Railways have partly superseded Turnpike Roads: but I expect that gates of a similar character will be still used, and should be carefully constructed.' Among the numerous other subjects described and illustrated are wine-cellars, ice houses, stables, central heating, smoky chimneys, ink wells and wasp traps. An Appendix describes thirty four other subjects, which are not illustrated, including Syphon Barometers, the 'Sweeney Nonpariel,' apple variety, slate flags, the malt tax and the construction of a tower on Sweeney Mountain in 1817 to provide employment for distressed labourers. Parker offered the use of his inventions freely to the public in this limited edition of one hundred copies, of which only fifty were for sale. The other fifty, of which this is an example were for free distribution, including this copy inscribed by the author to to W. Ormsby Gore. William Ormsby-Gore (1779-1860) of the Porkington Estate, Oswestry was a friend and neighbour of Parker, who after army service in the French wars, served as High Sheriff of Shropshire, 1817-18 and at the time of this publication was MP for North Shropshire (1835-57). A very scarce title; COPAC (giving the author's middle name as Netherson) records copies only at Oxford and Cambridge, the National Library of Scotland, the National Trust and the V and A.

Ignace Xavier Morand Hommaire de Hell, an engineer who had built a suspension bridge in Istanbul and a lighthouse on the Black Sea coast for the Ottoman Empire travelled with his wife Adà le Hà riot, who contributed much to the narrative. A few years after Astolphe de Custine's sensational report on Russia had been smuggled out, Hommaire de Hell states that 'Our work is published under no man's patronage; we have kept ourselves independent of all extraneous influence; and in frankly pointing out what struck us as faulty in the social institutions of the Muscovite empire, we think we evince our gratitude for the hospitable treatment we received in Russia .'

        Rapport sur divers modes d'embaumement présentés par MM. Dupré, Gannal et Sucquet

      Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière, 1847, in-8, de 24 pages, exemplaire broché, couverture jaune imprimée en noir, Unique édition de ce rapport présenté à l'Académie de Médecine le 16 mars 1847 dans lequel il s'agit, pour la commission (composée d'Orfila, Blandin, Caventou et Londe), de "constater la propriété conservatrice des substances proposées par MM. Dupré, Gannal et Suscquet, après avoir fait pratiquer sous ses yeux un embaumement par chacun d'eux, avoir fait enterrer les cadavres ainsi préparés et avoir procédé à leur exhumation au bout d'un certain laps de temps." Après observation, la commission peut conclure à la supériorité de la substance utilisée par Sucquet (probablement du chlorure de zinc) : une conservation indéfinie parfaite. A la toute fin, les commissaires attirent l'attention de l'Académie sur l'existence des travaux de Gorini qui, grâce à une préparation d'embaumement, parvient à créer des pièces semblables à des exécutions en cire des parties du corps. Malgré un feuillet volant, correct exemplaire, portant sur la première de couverture le cachet du "Commissaire de Police - ville de Paris" et la signature d'un commissaire de police, datée du 24 mai 1850.
