        [GREAT CONTENT AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNATURE OBLITERATED, FROM AN UNIDENTIFIED, BUT OBVIOUSLY HIGH-LEVEL POLITICIAN, DEFENDING AMERICAN INVOLVEMENT IN THE MEXICAN- AMERICAN WAR]

      [N.p., but probably Washington, 1847. [4]pp. Old folds, minor edge wear, dateline details and signature crossed out in contemporary ink to hide the author's identity. Still, very good. An uninhibited, racially-charged, and religiously-based letter written in wholehearted, full-throated support of United States involvement in the Mexican-American War. The author was most certainly a prominent politician at one time, as he writes about "the sentiments I expressed to the President the other day, and subsequently repeated to the Secretary of State" regarding the war but that he has "ceased to take an active part in politics." Since it is likely that he was visiting James K. Polk, he was probably a member of the Democratic Party, or perhaps an expansionist Whig. His letter reads, in part: "You condemn the Mexican War as a 'causeless cruel and disgraceful butchery' and call upon me, as 'one of the saints, the apostles of the party', to put a stop to it. I have no responsibility in my conscience in relation to it or any other measure of the government. Since I have ceased to take an active part in politics, I have had no influence whatever with the party in power. You do me altogether too much honor when you designate me as 'one of the political saints.' and entirely overrate my influence when you suppose that I can do anything to avert the war measures.... You think the war a 'horrid butchery. I think it the religious execution of our country's glorious mission under the Direction of Divine Providence to civilize and Christianize and raise up from anarchy and degradation a most ignorant, indolent, wicked and unhappy people! It is the will of God that the afflictions of this people shall be speedily terminated. The interests of Religion, of Commerce, of Free Government and of all the acts of Peace, require that those who have proved themselves incapable of self- government should be placed under the kind guardianship of others who are not only competent to direct their own affairs, but who can spare a little surplus time and energy to care for the welfare of others.... It is my firm belief that there will be no treaty of peace now or ever with the present wretched aggregation of races, tribes and colors miscalled the 'Mexican nation'." The author continues in much the same vein throughout the text of the letter, leaving absolutely no doubt where he stands on the current war question, and why. He mentions Texas three times, most notably when he writes that "until the boundary is settled by treaty we must defend out territory up to the line claimed by the political and legislative authority of Texas at the time of annexation [1845]." A remarkable correspondence from a high-ranking politician revealing much of his views on the Mexican people.

        PHOTOGRAPHIE DESCRIPTION DU PROCÉDÉ AMÉRICAIN ; [cover title]

      Paris: Chez Lerebours et Secretan, 1847. First edition. 8vo., 8, [1] pp. Original printed wrappers. Light toning at the edges, with a light chemical stain on the blank margin of 2 leaves. A very good copy housed in a paper over boards pamphlet case with printed paper labels. Little seems to be known of the life of Ferdinand Colas, other than he was born in France in 1820, but lived in England from at least 1841 until his death in 1876. From 1844 to 1849, he's listed as a pasteboard box maker on Fleet Street, and again in 1861. From 1851 to 1859, he's listed as a photographer at 105 Cheapside, London, the earlier years in partnership with F.A. Mouqué. He was a student of N.P. Lerebours, a prominent French manufacturer of lenses, cameras, optical instruments, and photographic supplies, as well as an accomplished daguerreotypist. In this short manual, Colas discusses the differences between the then established French method, and the "so called, American method." The major differences are in the polishing of the plate and use of compounds of bromine, chlorine, and iodine with lime as an accelerant. WorldCat locates a single copy of this first edition at the Bibliotheque Nationale de France. There is a copy dated 1849 at the Bibliotheque de Geneve, and five copies of an 1850 second edition. Roosens and Salue No. 6511. Bellier de la Chavignerie, Manuel Bibliographie du Photographe Francais, 1863, No. 44.

        ï¿½An�sthetic Agents, Their Mode of Exhibition and Physiological Effects,� [Extracted from the Transactions of the Am. Med. Ass., Vol. I.].

      [Philadelphia]: American Medical Association, [1847/8]. [Philadelphia]:: American Medical Association, [1847/8].. Offprint. Series: Transactions of the American Medical Association. Sm. 8vo. 18 pp. Contemporary plain brown wrappers, probably as issued; extracted from a bound volume, thus a remnant residue affecting spine. Front cover library withdrawal rubber stamp [possibly: �Concord Free Public Library�]. Very good. First SEPARATE OF BIGELOW ON ANESTHESIA, the journal form has an entirely different pagination, being pages 197-214 in the 1847 issue. We believe this is the original offprint form of this paper by Bigelow. There are several clear differences between this offprint form and the journal issue is (1) the pagination for the offprint is 1-18 (for the journal it is 197-214), and (2), the journal issue has �C.-1. at the head of the paper, and foot of the page has no page number � whereas the offprint form adds the line �[Extracted�], raises the title text higher on the page and includes a page number �1� at the bottom left margin. There is no known textual difference. � �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, pp. 36-47). � �Dr. Bigelow was the unflinching advocate of sulphuric ether as the only safe anesthetic: and his unshaken opinion had a very wide and lasting influence. Bigelow instituted important and productive experiments in anesthesia. He inhaled new and untried anesthetic agents. He made practical and original studies of asphyxia, and thoroughly established the fact that insensibility from the inhalation of nitrous oxide gas is largely due to asphyxia. He was also the first to show that anesthesia by nitrous oxide could be accomplished with certainty only by the use of a large volume of gas; and thus made the way plain to Colton and others for its successful adoption in tooth-pulling, and in brief surgical operations� (Mayo, p. 603). � Bigelow (1818�1890), born in Boston, studied at Harvard from 1833, and became a prominent surgeon and Professor of Surgery at Harvard University. �His 1846 article, �Insensibility during Surgical Operations Produced by Inhalation? detailed the discovery of ether anesthesia and was selected by readers of the New England Journal of Medicine as the �most important article in NEJM history? in commemoration of the journal?s 200th anniversary.� �He was a vocal opponent of vivisection and was best known for his description of the hip joint and for a technique for treating patients with kidney stones.� � Wikip.

        Manuscript copy of his famous Hoketsuki [trans.: Wrapping and Tying] first published in 1764. 138 illustrations in the text, finely drawn in black & red ink. Two parts in one vol. 87 folding leaves. 8vo (235 x 165 mm.), orig. wrappers, modern stitching

      [Copied by "Ijima" in "1847"]. A manuscript copy of Ise's well-known Hoketsuki, first published in 1764. This was the first important book on origata, the foundation of what we today know as origami. Japanese society has always emphasized formality and good manners - for example, offerings to the gods were placed on formally folded paper, and festive objects were wrapped in paper in an established, formal manner. These practices, which we can assume began in ancient times, were later reflected in the formal manners and sense of decorum of the martial society of the Muromachi period (14th to 16th centuries). It was around this time that the custom of wrapping gifts beautifully in paper developed. The custom of formal decorative paper folding, called origata, is the foundation stone in the development of origami. Origata was widely practiced by samurai families which kept their wrapping techniques secret. Manuscripts were privately made to disseminate the methods of origata. Ise, head of the Ise family which advised the Shogunate government in Edo on matters of etiquette, was the first to publicly reveal the folding methods. Nevertheless, the tradition of making manuscripts on origata continued well into the 19th century. Our manuscript consists of two parts. The first part is concerned with wrapping and the second with tying. The numerous illustrations depict all the folding and tying techniques which Ise developed. They are very finely drawn and very clear. We will note that the 1764 edition of Ise's Hoketsuki is a very rare and valuable book. Fine condition.

        Outline of a proposed plan for building new towns at Windsor and Eton; in order completely to improve the Castle and Parks. Addressed to the Right Honourable the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Woods, &c., to the Provost and Fellows of Eton College, and to the Mayor and Corporation of Windsor.

      London: printed for private circulation only 1847 - 8vo., (2) + 9 + (1)pp. of text together with two folding coloured lithographic plates, each plate signed by the two authors,> original plain dark green cloth. First and only edition and apparently of some rarity. COPAC finds a copy at the V & A but not elsewhere. A proposal for the redevelopment of Windsor and Eton as new towns, designed on a grid system, together with realignment of the Royal Parks with altered connections with Windsor and Eton towns and incorporating a railway tunnel of about one mile under the Park and a new railway terminus in Windsor New Town. The coloured plans, which can be viewed simultaneously, show 'before' and 'after' views. The rationale of this dramatic transformation is set out by the authors in the text itself: 'We beg leave most respectfully to solicit your attention to the following Plan for Rebuilding the Town of Windsor at a greater distance from the Castle, as being the only effectual means for improving that royal residence and its vicinity, and for extending similar improvements to Eton. We are well aware of the magnitude of this proposition, but during five years' consideration of its principles, have been also convinced that it is a sound one .'. The authors notice that the proposed changes were influenced by 'Her Majesty's gracious predilection for the place, the intelligence and importance of the town and the pervading system of railways'. In their opinion both Windsor and Eton had reached 'that degree of decay which results either in ruin or renovation'. They propose almost wholesale change, which is here described in some detail, to paths, roads, public access, railway, utilities including a new reservoir, breweries, gas works, wharfs etc. 'The houses on the opposite banks of the river, and on the roads overlooking the Parks and College grounds, would be ornamental. The wide regular streets of both Towns would be formed with a view to produce architectural effect - simple but chaste - even in the humblest class of buildings. A supply of water would be laid on to each house, with a sufficient drainage therefrom; and the level of the streets raised four or five feet above the present surface, would admit of cellarage, and be beyond the reach of floods .'. So far as expense was concerned, Kyle and Kerl were confident that they had the answer. 'The Crown would purchase a certain portion of ground, construct the drainage, form the streets, erect the public buildings, and then divide it into an equal number of building plots to the present Town, and in such a manner as to bear the same relative value to each other. The proprietors would then receive the allotments on the terms of their present tenure; and to enable them to substitute new houses for those which new exist, sums of money would be lent by the Crown to those who sought for such assistance .'. In 1847 Windsor comprised some 1600 houses in addition to commercial, religious and public buildings. Of these about 1300 houses would be affected by the proposed changes. The authors' financial calculations ('estimates') showed that the overall cost of the New Town would be about £593,000 of which the Crown itself would supply £216,000. But the gross annual rental of Windsor at 20 years' purchase would be some £412,000 nett of cost of dilapidations. 'This estimate and the accompanying plans, although not in detail, will, it is hoped, be sufficient to show the practicability of the work, and the certainty of an ultimate remuneration for the money expended'. Unfortunately (?) the scheme was not implemented. [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Early News that the Honolulu Naval Depot Might be Relocated to California

      1847 - Letter Signed as Commander of the Pacific Squadron, to Thomas H. Stevens. Aboard the U.S.S. Independence, San Francisco, Ca. August 29, 1847. 1 p.,8 x 12 1/2 in. In this extremely early English-language letter from San Francisco, the Commander of the Pacific Squadron suggests that the naval stores then at Honolulu might be moved to California. Shubrick was in San Francisco, just returned from the blockade of Guaymas and Mazatlán. He writes to young Stevens (1819-1896) to send supplies to Monterey and warns that the Naval Depot in the Sandwich Islands will probably be relocated to California.The career of Shubrick himself is astoundingly accomplished. This is a man who served in the War of 1812 and in the Mexican-American War; he did not retire until the early months of the Civil War. It is fitting that he should also be in San Francisco 2 years before the Gold Rush. He was appointed as Commander of the Pacific Squadron in July of 1847 and it was under his command that operations in the Pacific were successfully concluded.

        To The Admirers Of The Noble Game Of Cricket

      1847 - Large commemorative handkerchief printed in red and black on white cotton. A group of famous Victorian cricketers surrounded by a decorative border inset with cartouches illustrating strokes, others enclosing ten Laws. A cricket match below, and the whole surmounted by a cricketer wielding a bat and riding the synonymous flying mammal (a visual pun). Names are printed beneath each player. IN A SMART, THICK EARLY 20TH CENTURY HOGARTH FRAME WITH ORIGINAL GLASS PRESERVED. Portraits of the All England Eleven, based on an 1847 watercolour drawing in the MCC collection by fellow team member Nicholas Felix, a talented artist as well as cricketer, who included his own portrait in the composition. His drawing was reproduced as a lithograph by N. Ploszczynski later that same year, titled The Eleven of England, Selected to contend the Great Cricket Matches of the North for the Year 1847. William Clarke (second from the left), Nottinghamshire bowler and proprietor of the Trent Bridge ground, had set up this the first professional touring team in 1846. By the early 1850s it was travelling the country playing more than 30 games each season, usually against local teams of 18 or 22 bolstered by outside professional bowlers. His and later rival touring Elevens attracted large crowds and helped to grow the game of cricket into a national sport. “To our mind an outstandingly attractive handkerchief, with its richly embellished borders, is the cotton commemorative dedicated ‘To the Admirers of the Noble Game of Cricket’, printed in two colours.” (The Wisden Book of Cricket Memorabilia, 1990). A striking and impressive adornment to any cricket lover’s wall. ** NOTE: This item is subject to additional shipping charges. Please arrange for collection or ask for a quote in advance of purchase ** CONDITION: The fabric with expected browning in parts, the printing still strong. No visible tears. The fringes of the design are hidden by the rebate of the frame. Smudged and illegible early ink annotation or signature to lower right of portrait group. Overall good.

        Nouvelles études et expériences sur les Glaciers actuels (Parte I unica mai pubblicata del "Systeme Glaciaire"). Atlas.

      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. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        �An�sthetic Agents, Their Mode of Exhibition and Physiological Effects,� [Extracted from the Transactions of the Am. Med. Ass., Vol. I.].

      [Philadelphia]:: American Medical Association, [1847/8].. Offprint. Series: Transactions of the American Medical Association. Sm. 8vo. 18 pp. Contemporary plain brown wrappers, probably as issued; extracted from a bound volume, thus a remnant residue affecting spine. Front cover library withdrawal rubber stamp [possibly: �Concord Free Public Library�]. Very good. First SEPARATE OF BIGELOW ON ANESTHESIA, the journal form has an entirely different pagination, being pages 197-214 in the 1847 issue. We believe this is the original offprint form of this paper by Bigelow. There are several clear differences between this offprint form and the journal issue is (1) the pagination for the offprint is 1-18 (for the journal it is 197-214), and (2), the journal issue has �C.-1. at the head of the paper, and foot of the page has no page number � whereas the offprint form adds the line �[Extracted�], raises the title text higher on the page and includes a page number �1� at the bottom left margin. There is no known textual difference. � �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, pp. 36-47). � �Dr. Bigelow was the unflinching advocate of sulphuric ether as the only safe anesthetic: and his unshaken opinion had a very wide and lasting influence. Bigelow instituted important and productive experiments in anesthesia. He inhaled new and untried anesthetic agents. He made practical and original studies of asphyxia, and thoroughly established the fact that insensibility from the inhalation of nitrous oxide gas is largely due to asphyxia. He was also the first to show that anesthesia by nitrous oxide could be accomplished with certainty only by the use of a large volume of gas; and thus made the way plain to Colton and others for its successful adoption in tooth-pulling, and in brief surgical operations� (Mayo, p. 603). � Bigelow (1818�1890), born in Boston, studied at Harvard from 1833, and became a prominent surgeon and Professor of Surgery at Harvard University. �His 1846 article, �Insensibility during Surgical Operations Produced by Inhalation� detailed the discovery of ether anesthesia and was selected by readers of the New England Journal of Medicine as the �most important article in NEJM history� in commemoration of the journal�s 200th anniversary.� �He was a vocal opponent of vivisection and was best known for his description of the hip joint and for a technique for treating patients with kidney stones.� � Wikip.

Docket February 26th,1844, Sandburgh, Sullivan Co. State of New York [Cover Title]. [Fallsburg, New York 1844-1847]. 73, [3] leaves. 20 manuscript and part-printed documents laid or pinned in. Quarto (7-1/4" x 6-1/2"). Quarter calf over marbled boards. Moderate rubbing to boards, corners worn, spine split, boards detached, front endleaf lacking, a few cracks to text block. Light toning, content in neat hand. $850. * An interesting docket recording court proceedings, executions, judgments and costs in Sandburg, or Sandburgh, a village known today as Mountaindale, a hamlet in Fallsburg, New York. The cases range from disputes over hay deals to disputes with the operators of canal boats. The manuscript or partly printed documents relating to specific legal cases are laid or pinned into the docket; these include executions, summonses, and subpoenas. An index at the end of the docket book lists 60 cases including plaintiffs and defendants. The most significant case is dated February 17, 1845: Alexander Rice vs. Charles CC. Childs, which spans over 10 pages (see leaves 40-47). It concerns young female student who was beaten badly in a classroom. Some of its more notable passages: "Plaintiff declares (...) said Dft violently beat maimed and severely injured Charlotte Infant Daughter of Plaintiff and that whereas the said Charles CC. Childs did so beat wound and injure the said Charlotte... that her health and Constitution is greatly enjoined. (...) Deft Pleads qualification in punishing the said Charlotte (...) as a Stubborn disobedient pupil of his school the Deft. (...) claims that it is his right privilege and duty under the attending and other circumstances to punish the said Charlotte for unlawful disobedience the Deft also claims that in his capacity as a Teacher he inflicted no more than a just punishment (...) in order to maintain discipline in his school." For misspeaking words or reading incorrectly, Charlotte was punished again and again by having her hands beaten. About nine witnesses gave testimony and some were cross-examined. The jury found a verdict in favor of the Plaintiff for $5.00. Leaves 19-24, are significant, too, for providing great detail of an.

        Outline of a proposed plan for building new towns at Windsor and Eton; in order completely to improve the Castle and Parks. Addressed to the Right Honourable the Commissioners of Her Majesty's Woods, &c., to the Provost and Fellows of Eton College, and to the Mayor and Corporation of Windsor.

      London: printed for private circulation only. 1847. 8vo., (2) + 9 + (1)pp. of text together with two folding coloured lithographic plates, each plate signed by the two authors,> original plain dark green cloth. First and only edition and apparently of some rarity. COPAC finds a copy at the V & A but not elsewhere. A proposal for the redevelopment of Windsor and Eton as new towns, designed on a grid system, together with realignment of the Royal Parks with altered connections with Windsor and Eton towns and incorporating a railway tunnel of about one mile under the Park and a new railway terminus in Windsor New Town. The coloured plans, which can be viewed simultaneously, show 'before' and 'after' views. The rationale of this dramatic transformation is set out by the authors in the text itself: 'We beg leave most respectfully to solicit your attention to the following Plan for Rebuilding the Town of Windsor at a greater distance from the Castle, as being the only effectual means for improving that royal residence and its vicinity, and for extending similar improvements to Eton. We are well aware of the magnitude of this proposition, but during five years' consideration of its principles, have been also convinced that it is a sound one .....'. The authors notice that the proposed changes were influenced by 'Her Majesty's gracious predilection for the place, the intelligence and importance of the town and the pervading system of railways'. In their opinion both Windsor and Eton had reached 'that degree of decay which results either in ruin or renovation'. They propose almost wholesale change, which is here described in some detail, to paths, roads, public access, railway, utilities including a new reservoir, breweries, gas works, wharfs etc. 'The houses on the opposite banks of the river, and on the roads overlooking the Parks and College grounds, would be ornamental. The wide regular streets of both Towns would be formed with a view to produce architectural effect - simple but chaste - even in the humblest class of buildings. A supply of water would be laid on to each house, with a sufficient drainage therefrom; and the level of the streets raised four or five feet above the present surface, would admit of cellarage, and be beyond the reach of floods .....'. So far as expense was concerned, Kyle and Kerl were confident that they had the answer. 'The Crown would purchase a certain portion of ground, construct the drainage, form the streets, erect the public buildings, and then divide it into an equal number of building plots to the present Town, and in such a manner as to bear the same relative value to each other. The proprietors would then receive the allotments on the terms of their present tenure; and to enable them to substitute new houses for those which new exist, sums of money would be lent by the Crown to those who sought for such assistance .....'. In 1847 Windsor comprised some 1600 houses in addition to commercial, religious and public buildings. Of these about 1300 houses would be affected by the proposed changes. The authors' financial calculations ('estimates') showed that the overall cost of the New Town would be about £593,000 of which the Crown itself would supply £216,000. But the gross annual rental of Windsor at 20 years' purchase would be some £412,000 nett of cost of dilapidations. 'This estimate and the accompanying plans, although not in detail, will, it is hoped, be sufficient to show the practicability of the work, and the certainty of an ultimate remuneration for the money expended'. Unfortunately (?) the scheme was not implemented.
