        Two Cases of Inhalation of Ether in Instrumental Labor

      1847 - CHANNING, Walter. "Two Cases of Inhalation of Ether in Instrumental Labor." FROM: The Boston Medical and Surgical Journal, Volume 36, pp.1-11. [Boston: Boston Medical & Surgical Journal, 1847]. Octavo, stitched as issued, original cream paper wrappers. $3200.First separate edition of this important work on the use of ether in obstetrics, inscribed by the author on the front wrapper: "Dr. Johnson, with Dr. Channing's regards," and with a single correction on page 11 where Channing has drawn a line through a section of text and written "omit."This is Dr. Walter Channing's groundbreaking early paper on the use of anesthesia in obstetrics. Channing became the first professor of obstetrics at Harvard (1815) and was later dean of the medical school there. He was the founder of the Boston Lying-in Hospital and a co-editor of the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal. Sir James Joung Simpson was the first physician to use ether anesthesia in obstetrical cases; Channing was the first to do likewise in America. Though Channing followed this article a year later with a major monograph, this work remains a landmark in obstetrics and anesthesiology. Norman 440. See Osler 1394. Faint vertical crease from folding, expert paper repair to bottom corners of first leaf of text and wrappers, faint soiling to wrappers. An extremely good copy. Rare.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Breslau, 18. VIII. 1847. - 1 S. 4to. "Ew. Wohlgeboren wollen gütigst entschuldigen, daß ich Ihre werthen Zeilen vom 16. v. M. erst heute, nach 4 Wochen zu beantworten mir die Ehre gebe. Dieselben gelangten während meiner Abwesenheit auf einer Badereise hieher, und erst gestern, bei meiner Rückkehr habe ich sie vorgefunden. Ihre gütige Aufforderung durch einen literarischen Eintrag zur Unterstützung der hiesigen durch Wasserfluthen Beschädigten mitzuwirken, ist mir sehr ehrenvoll, nur muß ich aufrichtig bedauern demselben nicht entsprechen zu können. Es liegt mir kein Produkt vor das geeignet wäre, und es fehlt [ ] an Zeit und Stimmung etwas Neues hervorzubringen [ ]". - Nach der Teilnahme an den Befreiungskriegen trat Heyden als Referendar in Oppeln in den preuß. Staatsdienst ein. Seit 1826 Regierungsrat, wurde er später Oberregierungsrat in Breslau. Das ihm 1843 angetragene Amt des Zensors lehnte der ansonsten Unpolitische ab. Sein spätromantisches Historiendrama Conradin (1818) wurde u.a. von August von Platen gefeiert. Heyden veröffentlichte epigonenhafte Versepen, Gedichte und Dramatische Novellen.

        Parables of Our Lord

      London: Longmans, 1847. Humphreys, Noel. Publisher's papier maché boards, covered with black plaster, molded to appear like a Gothic carved wood binding, with gilt stamped leather back.Chromolithographed title page and 31 chromolithographed pages, with text, symbolic borders, and initials printed in gold, black, and colors, 2 page printed explanation and advertising leaf. 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. Although as inevitable with the gutta-percha gluing, the leaves have become detached, this is nonetheless an exemplary, and extraordinarily fine copy of a fragile production, usually found quite worn, often missing the spine, the edges chipped, etc., but here with the binding showing almost no wear and even the gilt on the cover edges intact and the spine gilt visible though tarnished. This is the earliest example of this innovative use of materials to reproduce antiquarian handmade work, and it met with considerable commercial success.

        Aunt Carry's Ballads For Children: Adventures of a Wood Sprite; The Story of Blanche and Brutikin.

      Small 4to. Original forest green finely ribbed cloth prettily panelled in blind to both covers, and lettered in gilt to upper board, all edges gilt; pp. [iv], 5-53; with a total of 8 fine handcoloured lithographs, 4 of which have the charming original watercolours by John Absolon expertly laid down on paper and tipped-in alongside, 2 with accompanying tipped-in manuscript captions; a unique copy, from the library of L.G.E. Bell, with his tiny booklabel to front pastedown; externally very clean and sound with one small splash mark to centre of upper board and slight rubbing to bottom fore-corner of the same; internally, also, remarkably good, with a little light toning to stock and pale foxing to verso of a couple of plates. First edition. The four original watercolour illustrations for "The Story of Blanche and Brutikin" provide a telling contrast to the images in the engraved state and convey an energy and depth of emotional expression which is tempered in the printed version. The lithographs also include a considerable number of changes to the detail of the original artwork. John Absolon (1815-1895) was born in Lambeth. He studied under an Italian, Ferrigi, and began work as a portrait painter before being apprenticed to Grieve, the theatrical scene-painter. He went on to paint miniatures before turning his hand to children's book illustration: a genre in which he saw the most success. Caroline Elizabeth Sarah Norton (1808-77) was the granddaughter of Irish playwright Thomas Sheridan and a famous society beauty, author and hostess. Her acrimonious estrangement from her bullying husband George Chapple Norton, who accused her of having an affair with the then Prime Minister Lord Melbourne, brought her even further into the public eye and steered her towards involvement in social reform. She was an early campaigner for rights for married and divorced women, especially with respect to custody of their children.

Pictorial lithograph wrapper, 2 publisher's leaves of explanation printed on recto's only, 46 lithographed leaves, 3 full-page, 30 with two images, 12 with 3 images and 1 with 5 images (making a total of 104 images on 46 leaves), sixteen page publisher's catalog at end followed by the original rear wrapper with two oval stamps in blue "H.E. Hamann / Memel" & "Graben / No 435 / Strasze".Later full tan calf, covers decoratively ruled in gilt, spine with five shallow bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, edges sprinkled brown. Indiscernible ink inscription at foot of title-page. Some very occasional light foxing. A fine copy."This album is of legendary rarity. It is noted in the preface that Doré "composed, drew, and lithographed" its forty-six plates when he was fifteen. It was part of Aubert's "collectionÂ… Jabots," named after Töpffer's opening volume, Mr. Jabot. Doré's farcical depictions of the labors of Hercules follow the style of the Swiss artist in their linear simplicity. (Ray).We can locate just four copies in libraries and institutions: Morgan Library (NY); New York Public Library (NY); Harvard Houghton Library (MA) and one copy in Switzerland.Hercules was a divine hero in Greek mythology, the son of Zeus and Alcmene. He was the greatest of the Greek heroes, a paragon of masculinity with extraordinary strength, courage, ingenuity, and sexual prowess. His iconic attributes are the lion skin and the club."Doré was born in Strasbourg in 1832, the son of a well-to-do engineer in the Department of Bridges and Highways. He was a pretty, bright boy, the darling of the family, cherished beyond his two brothers by his mother and his nurse Francoise. From earliest childhood his delight was in drawing; indeed, he used to ask for pencils that were cut at both ends. The cathedral and old houses of Strasbourg fascinated him. "These spectacles were my first vivid impressions," he wrote. "They were those éblouissements d'enfant which determine a taste." He made his first lithograph when he was eleven, at about the same time that his family moved to Bourg-en-Bresse, and he came to know well the Black Forest and the mountains of the Vosges, further shaping forces in his imagination. Doré visited Paris with his parents in 1847. There he showed Charles Philipon some of his drawings, and the impressed publisher offered him employment as a caricaturist for his new Journal pour rire. Doré was thereby enabled to remain in the city, enrolling in the Lycée Charlemagne, where Nadar was a fellow student. Though he spent much time in the print room of the Bibliothèque Nationale, he also came to know the city intimately. The revolution of 1848, which gave him an opportunity to witness mass movements of humanity, also disgusted him with political violence. After the death of his father in 1849, he lead a life of unremitting industry as the support of his family, at the same time playing a prominent role in Parisian literary, artistic, and musical society. Meanwhile, Doré had begun his prodigious career as an illustrator. His first lithographic album, published at the age of fifteen, was Les Travaux d'Hercule. It and the more imposing albums which followed remain to little known even among Doré's ardent admirers because of their great scarcity. They show the artist at his most engaging, bearing witness to a lively sense of humor, now broad, now sophisticated, which was muted in his later illustrations." (Ray, pp. 326-327).

"The first [voyage] to enter what is known 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.

Original gilt-pictorial and blind-decorated blue cloth (possibly recased at an early date, with endpapers replaced and edges trimmed and lightly speckled); cloth lightly marked, rubbed, and with very light wear to the head of the spines (the latter a little sunned, a problem endemic to the cloth, according to Rosove); tidemarks to three plates in the first volume (barely noticeable from the image side on two of them, and affecting only the bottom margin clear of the image on the panorama); a very crisp and attractive set. Rosove 276 (not noting the unlisted illustration): 'a cornerstone of the Antarctic literature and a monument to one of mankind's greatest expeditions of geographical and scientific exploration'; Taurus Collection 9; Renard 1328. The expedition was 'the first 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' (The 'Taurus' Collection).

        Parables of Our Lord

      Longmans, London 1847 - Publisher's papier maché boards, covered with black plaster, molded to appear like a Gothic carved wood binding, blind-stamped leather back. Chromolithographed title page and 31 chromolithographed pages, with text, symbolic borders, initials, and illustrations printed in gold, black, and colors, 6 1/4 x 4 1/2 in. Although as inevitable with the gutta-percha gluing, the leaves have become detached, this is nonetheless an exemplary, and extraordinarily fine copy of a fragile production, usually found quite worn, often missing the spine, the edges chipped, etc., but here with the binding showing almost no wear and even the gilt on the cover edges intact. This is the first use of this innovative use of materials to reproduce antiquarian handmade work, and it met with considerable commercial success. Ray, The Illustrator and the Book in England, 231.

Les dites archives fondées, les dits plans et tableaux dressés et la présente carte exécutée : sous les ordres et par les soins de Mr. Emmery, Ingénieur en Chef Directeur des Ponts et Chaussées, Ingénieur en Chef Directeur des eaux, des égouts, et des canaux de la ville de Paris. Gravée sur la demande du Conseil Municipal et suivant arrêté du 14 avril 1837. De Mr le Comte de Rambuteau, Pair de France, Préfet de la Seine. 1839.La dite carte statistique burinée sur cuivre pour être complétée chaque année et rectifiée s'il y a lieu. Conformément aux distributions d'eaux qui pourront être ultérieurement ordonnées.Dressée par ACHIN - Gravée par DORMIER - Les écritures par LALE - Dirigée par MONVOISIN."Mention manuscrite et signature de M.

Dans son mémoire sur la statistique des eaux de la ville de Paris, l'auteur, nommé chef du service des eaux en 1832 et chargé en particulier de l'assainissement, écrivait :" L'expérience apprend encore que le nombre des hommes généreux qui consentent à mettre en commun et avec abandon tout ce qu'ils savent, que ce nombre, disons-nous, est fort restreint ; presque toujours, l'homme spécial a un grand intérêt à se rendre nécessaire, par calcul, il a l'égoïsme raisonné de ne communiquer aux autres que le moins possible, de faire de tout un service public, une sorte d'arcanum ; et de là le tort, pour ainsi dire volontaire, de laisser périr, presque pour chaque génération, les plus précieux documents. Toujours est-il que nous pourrions citer des distributions d'eaux publiques qui sont devenues, dans certaines villes, le monopole d'une famille, et nous affirmons au moins que lorsque nous sommes arrivé à la direction des eaux de Paris, c'est avec toutes les peines imaginables que nous avons pu ressaisir les fils de cet immense service." . 480 g.

The Biographical Treasury (1838) was frequently revised and reprinted and was brought up to date by W. L. R. Cates (1873, 1882). An interesting feature, used elsewhere, is the snippets of information and moral maxims printed in the four margins of each page. Other Treasuries were devoted to belles lettres (1841), history (1844), natural history (1848), and geography (1856 and 1860)." He died at his home in Gibson Square, Islington, on 30 April 1849.
