Rare broadside proclamation by Friedrich Wilhelm IV, King of Prussia, declaring his dedication to German unity. The broadside was issued in the immediate aftermath of a March 1848 public demonstration which turned revolutionary and violent. The day the broadside was issued, March 21, 1848, a mass funeral was held for the victims, the king and his ministers in attendance wearing the revolutionary colors of black red and gold-still the colors Germany today. By thus showing himself, the king affirmed his leadership of a new government. "Ihr seid fortan wieder eine einige große Nation, stark, frei und wichtig im Herzen von Europa! Preußens Friedrich Wilhelm IV. hat Sich, im Vertrauen auf Euren heldenmütigen Beistand und Eure geistige Wiedergeburt, zur Rettung Deutschlands an die Spitze des Gesamt-Vaterlandes gestellt.

M. T. Wallace & Co.]
(S.n.), [Brooklyn], 1848. Interesting and uncommon patent medicine piece featuring one of the earliest claims of "Indian" cures. The first 4 pages of this promotional pamphlet recount a thwarted Indian ambush of a cattle drive from Niagara to Detroit at the end of the 18th century. William Wallace and three companions were warned of the ambush by a friendly Indian named Jacob Big Tree, who also gave them the miraculous medicine advertised for the remaining 12 pages of this pamphlet. The variety of ailments it could cure is truly remarkable. Several quaint woodcut illustrations accompany the ads. See SABIN 34480 for the 4 page "Tradition" without the subsequent advertising. Fine. Sewn binding remains sound. Pages show mild age-toning, with a few small spots of darker staining to first page. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

David Clapp, 1848. 8vo, pp. [2], 27, [1]; bound with, as issued: Bigelow, Anaesthetic agents, their mode of exhibition and psychological effects [drop title]; pp.18; this the first edition in which both this article and its extention appear together. Ether and chloroform had been published previously in the Boston medical and surgical journal. Disbound, original printed pink wrappers preserved; very good. Bigelow's championing of ether as an anesthetic led to its widespread adoption. (Garrison-Morton).

Un discorso pronunciato a Parigi il 29 Incontro del novembre 1847 per celebrare questo anniversario. Di M. Bakunin, rifugiato russo. Tradotto in tedesco. Bakunin, Michael: Mannheim, Heinrich Hoff, 1848. 19,5 x 12,5 cm. 16 pagine. Opuscolo con strisce da sella. Lingua: tedesco Numero ordine: 127425 Commenti: * Stammhammer I, 19: Nettlau, p. 42. - Prima edizione, molto rara. - Mikhail Alexandrovich Bakunin, (1814-1876) fu un rivoluzionario e anarchico russo. È considerato uno dei più influenti pensatori, attivisti e organizzatori del movimento anarchico. Bakunin originariamente proveniva da una vecchia famiglia nobile russa, ma sfuggì alla vita e ai militari al servizio russo e si fece strada come insegnante di matematica. Nel 1840 venne a Berlino e conobbe i grandi pensatori e filosofi dei Vormärz e si dedicò al socialismo. Dopo lo scoppio della rivoluzione di febbraio in Francia nel 1848, Bakunin tornò a Parigi e prese parte alla lotta rivoluzionaria. Come co-organizzatore della rivolta di Dresda nel maggio 1849, fu infine arrestato, condannato a morte diverse volte e infine estradato in Russia, dove fu condannato all'ergastolo e al 1857 in esilio in Siberia. Lì riuscì a fuggire nel 1861 e tornò in Europa attraverso il Giappone e l'America, dove continu … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mapleson, T W Gwilt
New York: Wiley and Putnam, 1848. 53 illuminated pages, mainly with highly gilded and decorated borders done in chromolithography. Small quarto. Bevelled black cloth, stamped in gilt and blind, raised bands, a.e.g. Rubbed along the joints and edges, corners worn; chip at head of spine repaired. Very clean and bright internally. Very good overall. A stunning example of a type of mid-19th century American literary work embellished with chromolithographs, it is singled out by several writers as a fine example of the genre. The striking lithographic work was produced by the Brett and Sinclair firms of Philadelphia. The text consists of a number of poems, the title and author's name preceding the verses themselves. "The illuminated border is different for each poem. Many of them contain miniatures of birds, animals, landscapes and human beings. The 'pages' are really hinged boards" - Bennett. Marzio calls the plates "brilliant" and Wainwright says: "The effect of this concentration of color is almost blinding, the title page alone carrying an impact sufficient to stun the senses." Mapleson, a talented book designer, produced several other, similar works, including A HANDBOOK OF HERALDRY (New York, 1851) and LAYS OF THE WESTERN WORLD (New York, 1849). This book is without a publication date, which remains uncertain; McGrath guesses that it was probably printed in the early 1850s, while Bennett assigns a date of 1853. This copy, however, bears a faint ownership signature on the front free endpaper of "Henry Baird / 1848," and a presentation inscription on a front fly leaf r … [Click Below for Full Description]

Le tavole sono litografate da Cupper, de Rudder, Gerlier, Lehnert, Robineau e Walter e di queste, 5 sono su carta brunita: poichè solo queste portano l’indicazione che sono state stampate da Auguste Bry, è presumibile che sia stata usata un altro tipo di carta.

Social History] [Emma and Elijah Guild]
Lyons [NY], 1848. 28 page manuscript ledger in a single neat hand, documenting transactions across three months in the dry goods store of Lyons, NY. Handwritten notation on the front wrap of the Blank Books Adapted to Fulton & Eastman's Book Keeping (Troy, NY) reads "Day Book.Merchants." The inside of the wrap has printed advice "To the Pupil" on learning bookkeeping. While no ownership signature is to be found in the manuscript, The Genealogy and History of the Guild, Guile, and Gile Family show that Elijah Guild was the preeminent merchant of the small town of Lyons, NY and that he married Emma Carman in the year 1848. This suggests that the book was likely kept for their store, and that Emma herself may have been learning how to keep the accounts. Regardless of which spouse kept the ledger, however, it is rich with information on the economy and habits in this upstate township, positioned near Rochester, Syracuse, and Seneca Falls -- a region afire with activism in this significant year in American history. Positioned in the same year as the Seneca Falls Convention, and within the same region, this merchant's ledger gives us insight into the types of goods being transported up and sold within the township. It also assists us in tracing which households spent money where -- who was purchasing necessities versus luxuries and whether husbands, wives or domestic servants more frequently made the purchases. The merchant's ledger also poses opportunities for studying whether members of this small community were engaged in key movements surrounding them -- whether they were abo … [Click Below for Full Description]
