        Aventures D'Arthur Gordon Pym [The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym]

      Paris: Michel Levy Freres. First edition in French. Fine. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS of Baudelaire's translation of Poe's only novel, the first appearance in French. Baudelaire's translations of Poe were enormously influential in establishing Poe's international reputation. A beautiful copy. Baudelaire's "translations of Poe's fiction, published over a period of sixteen years between 1848 (when Poe was still alive) and 1864, comprise five of the twelve volumes in the standard edition of Baudelaire's works. In addition to sacrificing his own creative work in order to translate Poe, Baudelaire published three essays about him in the 1850s… John Weightman has noted that 'no other major figure has ever been known to perform such a sustained act of piety towards a fellow author.' Baudelaire's translations are still considered among the best in any language" (Meyers, Edgar Allan Poe: His Life and Legacy). On Arthur Gordon Pym and Baudelaire's influence: "Most developments in Poe and Pym criticism in America have been pioneered in France. This pattern has been remarkably consistent for over a century and a half. Charles Baudelaire's enthusiasm for Poe never produced the cult here [in the USA]… that it produced there as a permanent establishment, where Poe has been recognized as a founder, through Baudelaire's own mediate, of modern French symbolist poetics, both by his theory and his original genius" (Harvey, The Critical History of Edgar Allan Poe's The Narrative of Arthur Gordon Pym). Paris: Michel Levy Freres, 1858. Octavo, original green printed wrappers. A few spots of soiling to wrappers. An outstanding copy, very rare in such good condition in the original wrappers.

BOUND WITH: ANONYMOUS. The last of the Esmonde?'s [sic], Or, The Egyptian?'s Revenge, And other tales. London: Published by William Barth, 4, Brydges Street, Covent Garden, N.D. [c.1848]. Sm.4to, printed in double column throughout; forty-nine full-page wood-engraved illustrations to ?'Quintin Matsys?' by J. Andrew after Pierce Egan, integral but unbacked and not included in the pagination; numerous other illustrations in the text to all sections, some in each case signed ?'P.E.?'; pp.[ii (title to ?'Old Oak Chest?')]+[ii (title to ?'Quintin Matsys?')]+298 (text of ?'Quintin Matsys?')+[ii (title to ?'Harry Racket Scapegrace?')]+102 (text of ?'Harry Racket Scapegrace?')+[ii (title to ?'The Last of the Esmonde?'s?')]+57+11 (drop-head: ?'The Mysterious Pilgrim; Or, The Thirteen Rings?')+14 (drop-head: ?'Eyloff of Ems; Or, The Fatal Battle of Sempach?')+96pp. unpaginated (text of ?'The Old Oak Chest?'); contemporary quarter dark-green sheep, ruled gilt on sides, spine with four raised bands, ruled, tooled, and lettered gilt in compartments, green oil-marbled sides and end-papers; Insignificant peeling of sheep on front board, and slight wear to head of spine; a little scattered marking and dusting in text; pp.43-4 of second work torn without loss, and piece chipped from lower-forecorner of pp.49-50 with loss of about a hundred words; in general, nonetheless, a nice copy of a very scarce collection. First edition in book form of ?'Harry Racket Scapegrace?' (Summers, ?'Gothic Bibliography?', pp.40 & 347) and, probably also of ?'The Last of the Esmonde?'s?' etc. Reprint of the rest. ?'The Old Oak Chest?' was originally a periodical, numbers 51 to 73 of which (all we have been able definitely to trace) being issued between the week starting Sunday, February 11th and that Starting Sunday, July 14th 1844, this suggesting as a commencing date for publication the week beginning Sunday, 21st January 1843. Pierce Egan the Younger seems to have begun his writing career about 1839-40 with the firm of Hextall and Wall, for whom he produced four novels issued in weekly penny or twopenny numbers, ?'Robin Hood?' (completed 1840), ?'Wat Tyler?' (1841), ?'Adam Bell?' (1842), and ?'Paul Jones?' (1842). He then changed his publisher to Barth, who appears to have enticed him with the offer of a more settled employment as editor, as well as contributor to, the newly projected ?'Old Oak Chest?'. How long he continued to edit this periodical - or how long, for that matter, it continued to be published - are both unknown, though the prolific Egan?'s failure to produce a new long fiction between ?'Fair Rosamond?', published by Barth in 1844 and ?'The Black Prince?' published by Pattie, 110, Shoe Lane, in 1848-9 is perhaps suggestive. So is the fact that between 1848 and 1850 several new works of Egan?'s and some reprinted ones appeared under the imprint of a number of different publishers, but not of Barth. Pattie issued ?'The Black Prince?' in 1848-9; Vickers ?'The Thirteenth?' in 1849; George Pierce ?'Maid Marian?' (first number 28th February 1849), and also re-issued ?'Robin Hood?' in 1849, and ?'Wat Tyler?' in 1850; Johnson began a series of re-prints of Egan?'s works from his ?'Steam-Press?' in the early 1850s and also issued ?'The London Apprentice?', after which we find Egan publishing with ?'Reynold?'s Miscellany?' and finally, from 1857, in ?'The London Journal?', with which he remained till his death in 1880. What emerges from this is that his connection with Barth seems to have ended some time in 1848, and that the present volume, utilising material published in ?'The Old Oak Chest?' during the whole of it?'s preceding history, probably dates from 1848 or 1849, whilst the first (periodical) appearance of the short novel ?'Harry Racket Scapegrace?' was almost certainly 1848 or earlier. Summers, p.40, dates the whole contents of this volume - on what evidence we know not - 1850, but this seems improbable since Egan?'s name is given on each of the title-pages as ?'the younger?', a style he dropped after the death of his father in 1849. We have therefore dated it speculatively 1848. Summers attributes all the fictional contents of the present volume to Egan?'s pen: we believe this to be unlikely since Egan was normally scrupulous about signing his work (and stated that he always did so in his Preface to ?'Paul Jones?'). A peculiarity of ?'The Old Oak Chest?' in its original incarnation, mirrored in the make-up of the present volume, was that the serials it contained were separately paginated, whilst the magazine section bore no page numbers. This enabled purchasers to gather together the several sections of each serial and bind them up into a volume, consecutively paged - and also enabled the publisher to reprint them for separate issue without resetting. In the present copy, the title to the magazine section has been used as the general title, but the magazine content separated from it and bound in at the end. Egan?'s long novel ?'Quintin Matsys?' included here seems to have been included originally in the first or second volume of ?'The Old Oak Chest?', for in the section ?"To Correspondents?" at the end of the eighth number of volume three it is stated: ?"Our readers will perceive that in the present number we have commenced a series of short Romances, printed uniformly with ?'Lucretia Borgia,?' ?'Quintin Matsys,?' &c. and which will form when completed an elegant and entertaining volume.?" We assume that the reprint of it in the present volume is an exact reproduction of that, from the same plates - and this is given support by the fact that though the running titles read ?'Quintin Matsys.?' on the left-hand pages and ?'The Blacksmith of Antwerp.?' on the right-hand pages throughout, the plates are without running titles except those between pp.228 and 277, which read ?'The Old Oak Chest?'. This printing is not the same, however, as the separate issue in thirty-one penny numbers made by Barth c.1843 - 44, which was in single column, had 498pp. and sixty-two inserted plates on plate-paper. There is no list of plates in the present volume, but they are printed to face pp.4, 12, 22, 24, 30, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60, 66, 72, 78, 84, 90, 96, 102, 108, 114, 120, 126, 132, 138, 144, 150, 156, 162, 168, 174, 180, 186, 192, 198, 204, 210, 216, 222, 228, 234, 240, 246, 252, 258, 264, 276, 282, 288, and 294. The following errata and typographical flaws have been noted (state or issue significance, if any, undetermined): p.194, column two, l.56, ?'wnich?' for ?'which?'; p.195, first three lines lack three or four letters at the start; p.256, l.37, reads ?'hollw?' for ?'hollow?'; p.20 is mis-paged 2, p.231 is mis-paged 23, p.271 is mis-paged 27, p.284 is mis-paged 28, and p.252 is mis-paged 246. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

      Mexico City, 1848. Quarto, on a folded folio sheet. Old folds. Minor soiling. In a clear and highly legible hand. Very good plus. Charles W. Foster of Massachusetts served in the engineer corps in the Mexican-American War, and later served in the Civil War. He writes to his brother George about family business (including George's impending marriage) as well as details of his corps' possible move to California. The United States took Mexico City in August 1847; the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo was signed in February 1848, ending the war and ceding a vast swath of Mexican territory to the U.S., including Texas, California, and everything in between. "In your letter of the 2nd March, you very humbly ask my pardon for publishing those letters; I took no offence whatever at the publication, I merely wished to inform you, that I wanted you to keep dark for the future. You can of course show my letters to any of my friends that you think proper. It seems that you are not agoing to get tied up at present, dam[n] bad plan, I do not see a word about Ellen in your letter; I hope that thare [sic] is no crockery broken....Col. J.G. Totten the chief [engineer] at Washington has proposed and recommended to the President to raise 7 more companys of Engrs, four of which are to proceed to California, should the Treaty be ratified (by the way the news of its ratification by our government reached this city on the 2nd of this month) to superintend the erection of fortifications thare, tharefore supposeing the War closed our company may not see home these two years yet, however should the Treaty be ratified by the Mexican Congress immediately [sic] I think that we should be among the first to leave for the States. It seems that my letter settled some doubts which had arrisen [sic] among some of my friends in relation to the duties of our company; I suppose that some imagined that we had a great deal of hard labour to perform, I can assure them that it is very seldom that we have anything of the kind to do. To give you some idea on the subject I will give you some account of our operations at Vera Cruz. Our company was divided into five parts, eight men in each part, and only one set in the trenches or batteries at a time, each detail on duty eight hours only at a time, and thus you see that eight men were divided among about five hundred men or more according to circumstances, each of the engineers having charge of a particular portion of the work, and all under the general superintendence of a detail of Engineer Officers. The Peace prospect brightens; it is said that there is a quorum of the Mexican Congress at Queratero, and it is the opinion of the leading Mexicans in this city that the Treaty will be accepted as modified by our Senate. Orders have already been issued for the downward movement of the troops, the first that move are the sick, who are under orders to move on the tenth of the present month to Saluppa [possibly Xalapa?]; several of the volunteer regiments together with the Mass. Regt. have also received orders to hold themselves in readiness to march on short notice, so you see that it looks a little like Peace, but the Devil trust a Mexican." Foster also relates a grim tale of bank robbery gone awry, in which some of the U.S. troops determined to rob a local bank and a clerk was killed defending the safe: "A young Spanish clerk in a banking house was killed here night before last; there was some two or three thousand dollars in the office, which he died in defending. It seems that some teamsters and one or two Volunteer Officers learned that thare was a large amount of money in the building and laid there plans accordingly, but on entering they made so much noise that they awoke the two clerks, who drew their pistols and took their position in front of the safe to defend the money. One of them was shot dead, and two of the assailants were severely wounded. I am sorry to say that thare were two Lieuts. concerned both belonging to the Pennsylvania Regt. The parties have all been arrested; it creates a great excitement here the more so because American Officers were concerned." A detailed letter from the front lines of the Mexican- American War, discussing plans to fortify newly-acquired California.

      [South Texas & Mexico], 1848. Each letter a single quarto bifolium. Two horizontal and two vertical mailing folds in each, one letter with two small holes created when the seal was broken, minor fold separations, some soiling and staining. Good. Thomas Griffin writes to Miss Elizabeth Griffin, presumably his sister, who lived in New Geneva, Pennsylvania. Griffin appears to be heading to Mexico during the latter period of the war, his first letter written in the summer of 1847 and his second dated Jan. 30, presumably after his division proceeded south to Vera Cruz. This would put Griffin in Vera Cruz just days before the signing of the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo on Feb. 3, 1848. 1) Autograph letter. "Camp at the mouth of the Rio Grande." July 22, 1847. [4]pp. Stamp-postmarked on the address panel "Brazos July 26" and "10." Griffin writes in part: "Here I am at the mouth of the celebrated Rio Grande, on the disputed territory & within three hundred yards of the acknowledged Mexican line. Our Division of the army arrived here yesterday afternoon. I consider yesterday one of the greatest days of my life, worth the labor of one year at least. It was then I saw for the first time the territory of Texas & Mexico." Immediately following is a vivid description of the Texas landscape. He then describes in detail his rough sea voyage from New Orleans to south Texas, where his unit landed at Brazos Santiago, a former port located on Brazos Island, which Gen. Taylor had established as a supply depot for the American military during the Mexican- American War. 2) Autograph letter, signed "Thomas." Pueblo, Mx. Jan. 30, [n.y., likely 1848]. [3]pp. Stamp-postmarked on the address panel: "Vera Cruz Mexo." Griffin writes about mail delivery: "I received yours of the 17th of December about two weeks ago, by a small escort of dragoons....I don't know when we will have mail down to Vera Cruz, probably not for a week or so." He also writes glowingly of the landscape he encounters: "I have long had an ardent desire to travel south particularly to Mexico and South America, & the wild, romantic & strange appearance of this most interesting country has entirely surpassed my expectations. I would not have missed coming here for anything in the world. Notwithstanding I have suffered and periled a good deal & expect to peril & suffer a deal more before the war is over." Griffin also writes almost a page on observations of locals: how he respects the way in which the Spanish and Mexican people take care of their "aged and infirm" (relaying a scene he witnessed in which locals helped a blind man), how the "higher classes among them" show respect to ladies, and his observations on witnessing a Mexican funeral.

Ab der Nr. 27 (5. Januar 1849) ist Virchow alleiniger Herausgeber (\"aus rein äußerlichen Gründen\"). Die Zeitung wurde eingestellt, als klar wurde, dass die politischen Reformbewegungen gescheitert waren und zudem Virchow in Würzburg seinen Lehrstuhl für pathologische Anatomie nur nach der Zusicherung erhielt, sich seiner früheren \"radicalen Tendenzen\" zu enthalten. Die \"Medicinische Reform\" gehört unstreitig zu den wissenschafts- und kulturhistorisch bedeutendsten Dokumenten der Revolution von 1848/49, und zudem ist sie eine der ersten Versuche in der medizinischen Publizistik als Wochenschrift. Sie ist auch deswegen so selten, weil die Auflagenhöhe beispielsweise im 2. Quartal nur knapp über 200 Ex. betrug. - This periodical was the most signifikant publication during the revolutionary developments of 1848-49 to argue for radical medical reform. The reform movement wanted an improvement in the organization of both the medical profession and public health. It advocated the integration of disparate groups of medical practitioners, the integration also of medical education between the different German states, and the development of a scientific medicine based on materialistic principles. To Virchow and Leubuscher, medical reform was, above all, a matter of revolutionary politics. The medical profession had to be concerned with not just medical questions in the narrow sense of the word, but also social and thus political conditions.

        Report of the Secretary of War, Communicating, In Answer to a Resolution of the Senate, a Report and Map of the Examination of New Mexico, Made by Lieutenant J. W. Abert, of the Topographical Corps

      [Washington], 1848. First Edition. Hardcover. Very good. Senate Executive Document No. 23, 30th Congress, 1st Session. 132 pp + folding map and 24 plates. Modern buckram binding with leather spine label; original wrappers not bound in (although, according to the Streeter catalogue (168) some copies were issued without wrappers). This report also appears in the House edition of Emory's Notes of a Military Reconnaissance, but according to Wagner-Camp (143) this is the first edition. It describes Abert's journey from Fort Leavenworth over the Santa Fe Trail via Bent's Fort, his survey of the northern part of New Mexico, and return trip via the Trail. The lovely lithographed plates--believed to be from drawings made by Abert himself--include images of the pueblos of Santa Ana, Santo Domingo, and Acoma, as well as Bosque del Apache and other landscape features.

      New York: Spencer (Vol. II), 1848. Quarto. Original pictorial gilt cloth, spines richly gilt in vine pattern, a.e.g. Boards lightly rubbed, corners worn and bumped, worn at spine ends. Scattered foxing, confined largely to the text but with a few fox marks on some plates, but with the plates generally clean and brightly colored. A very good set. The first two volumes of this four-volume work. The last two volumes are quite rare. Asa Strong, a physician, was one of the most popular natural history writers of his day. The qualities of each plant are given and its medicinal uses explained. Several of the plates were drawn by the noted illustrator, Edwin Whitefield, and others are by D.W. Moody. A definitive collation for this work as problematic, as Stafleu notes: "The copies listed in The National Union Catalog show a great variation." According to Stafleu, there are three issues of volume I, dated 1846, 1847, and 1848. The present set includes the 1848 third issue of volume I, which should have a frontispiece, engraved title and fifty plates. The present copy includes all those and is therefore complete. The second volume contains one more plate than called for by Stafleu (who notes only an additional titlepage, frontispiece, and forty-five plates). Bennett writes: "The publisher clearly did not count pages of color plates when listing the numbers on the title pages, but counted every separate item on each page. It has even been suspected that he counted fly-specks" (p.103). Bennett further notes that complete sets of Strong's AMERICAN FLORA... are "extremely difficult to locate." Strong is particularly interesting as one of the first publications to include introduced exotics, including plants from Africa.

        Arab Sheikh Smoking" [A single Lithographic Print from ORIENTAL ALBUM, Characters, Costumes and Mode of Life, in the Valley of the Nile]

      London Madden & Malcolm [1848] - A fine handcoloured lithograph from the first folio edition. A highly atmospheric and interesting plate after the drawings by E. Prisse d’Avennes done on stone by Bureau and printed by Lemercier in Paris and coloured by hand. A 13.75 by 10 inch image, on a single folio sheet measuring 21.5 by 14.25 inches, now protected in a 26 by 19 inch rust boards glazed with mylar. A beautifully preserved folio plate, the colours vivid and strong, all very clean and fresh. A WONDERFUL PLATE OF AN ARAB SHEIKH WITH A LARGE HOOKAH FROM THE FAMOUS ORIENTAL ALBUM. He is dressed in colourful robes and is sitting on a settee with a young servant in attendance. Émile Prisse d'Avennes was a leading French archaeologist, Egyptologist, artist, architect and writer. An artist of consummate skill, French to the bone, he was of British blood. He embraced Islam and took the name Edris-Effendi. By nature contentious, he alienated colleagues, yet succored the sick and the poor. Of the hundreds of 19th-century Orientalists - those Western artists, scholars and writers who gravitated to the Islamic world following Napoleon's invasion of Egypt in 1798 -few possessed so prodigious an intellect, such a trove of talents, so insatiable a curiosity or so passionate a commitment to record the historical and artistic patrimony of Egypt and Islam. He succeeded brilliantly, wherever his work took him, the insatiably curious young man eagerly tramped through ruins, drew maps and plans, sketched and wrote descriptive accounts of both ancient cities and modern villages.

Studiò nella "Scuola di Pietro Monaco"a Venezia, dove si specializzò come incisore. Pur copiando i dipinti degli altri autori, egli riuscì a elaborare nelle sue opere l'elemento più vivo della natura, ricavando il bello e il sublime. I soggetti delle sue opere sono chiese, canali con imbarcazioni, palazzi e piazze con passanti; tutto un insieme di movimenti ai quali lo stile del Sandi seppe esprimere anche grandi valori umani. Le sue incisioni sono esposte nei musei di Venezia, Padova e Firenze. 19mo secolo

      Buffalo, 1848. Original black cloth, stamped in gilt and blind, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down. Very faint tideline throughout, minor foxing. Very good. In a cloth case, leather label. An exceptionally rare firsthand account of the Canada Rebellion of 1837-38, and the experiences of an American participant who was imprisoned and sent to Tasmania. Marsh was one of eighty-two Americans convicted of aiding the Canadian rebels. Captured after the Battle of Prescott, he was detained at Toronto and Kingston before being sent to Van Diemen's Land aboard the British prison ship Buffalo. He reached Hobart Town in February 1840. Marsh was pardoned in 1845 and returned to Buffalo the next year. He describes in detail his imprisonment in Canada, the voyage to Tasmania, and the "cruel and unmerciful treatment during five years of unmitigated suffering on that detestable prison island." Also of interest is Marsh's description of Tasmania, its inhabitants and products. The illustration is a woodcut of the burning of the steamship Caroline. "The most detailed, most graphic, and most valuable of the narratives of exiles to Van Diemen's Land" - Severance. "Rarest of the Canadian Prisoner Narratives" - Ferguson. Ferguson notes one known copy, that formerly in the collection of Dr. C. Craig of Launceston, Tasmania, bearing an 1847 publication date. That copy sold at auction in 1975 for $3871. The copy of the 1848 edition of this title described by Ferguson is stamped in gilt on the front board: "New Book of Martyrs." Our copy is stamped in gilt on the front board: "Patriot Exile." Not in Lande, Sabin, or TPL. Quite rare and desirable.

      New York, 1848. Contemporary black morocco, gilt, rebacked to style. Corners lightly worn. Contemporary ownership inscription on front fly leaf. Internally clean. Very good. Self-styled "Standard Edition." This copy of the BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER is notable for its provenance. The inscription on the front fly leaf reads: "Edmund C. Bittinger, U.S. Steamship Susquehanna, June 7th, 1851. On Commodore Perry's Expedition to Japan." Edmund C. Bittinger (1819-89) was a U.S. Naval Chaplain, commissioned in 1850. The U.S.S. Susquehanna, also commissioned in 1850, was Perry's flagship for the expedition that opened Japan to the West. In 1852, Perry was appointed head of a naval expedition charged with inducing the Japanese government to establish diplomatic relations with the United States. In 1853 the Japanese were finally forced to accept a treaty demanding better treatment of shipwrecked seamen and which allowed American ships to dock at two Japanese ports to purchase fuel and supplies. The most important result of the voyage, however, was that Japan was opened to the West for the first time in history and ushered in to the modern era. This prayer book made the journey from the U.S. to the unknown East with that historic expedition. A wonderful association.

      Philadelphia, 1848. Expertly repaired, backed with modern linen, trimmed in maroon cloth, on contemporary rollers. Some creasing, toning, and staining, but overall in very good condition. The fifth edition of an important wall map of the United States, following editions of 1843, 1844, 1845, and 1846. Along with thirty-two small maps of individual American cities, there are two important additional inset maps, which appeared first in the 1846 version: "Map of Oregon Territory" (shown encompassing Oregon and Washington) and "Map of the State of Texas." The change in the Oregon Territory inset is significant, in that the inset on the 1846 edition showed Oregon going north into Canada, while the present inset shows Oregon Territory constrained by the boundaries of the Treaty of 1846. Texas includes virtually all of present-day New Mexico. Another two additional inset maps ("Map of the North-Eastern boundary of the United States According to the Treaty of 1842" showing the Maine-Canada boundary, and "Map of the Southern part of Florida") are carried over from earlier versions of the map. There are also two population tables. As with all of Mitchell's early maps of the United States, the main map extends no further west than the 95th meridian (eastern Texas). Due to the tremendous territorial growth west of the 95th meridian brought about by the Mexican War (1846-48), the map was discontinued after 1850. The map, engraved by J.H. Brightly, also appeared at least once (1843) in a pocket map format, with the thirty-two town plans on a separate sheet. Not in Phillips' MAPS, which lists the 1843 edition. The present map is significantly different in size than the 1848 Mitchell wall map described in Rumsey 2300. An important map showing territorial gains made in the Mexican War.

        Manuscript - Notes on Cholera Treatment of Early Hydrotherapy - Onset of 2nd Pandemic

      England, 1848. [England], September 1848. Manuscript notes on the treatment of cholera by R. Baikie, former surgeon in the Madras Medical Service, made during the second cholera pandemic, and transcribed by an unknown nineteenth century hand. 8vo. Double leaf measuring 11 x 18 cm, watermarked with the year 1848. Very good condition. Written during the second cholera pandemic,which erupted in 1839 and persisted until 1856, and at the onset of the outbreak in London, British physician Dr. Baikie's notes examine early hydrotherapy treatments by Vincenz Priessnitz and Heinrich Friedrich Francke, leaders in the study and cure of the disease in the mid-1800s. Most interestingly, the cures prescribed here are partly accurate and partly opposite to what science have since discovered to be effective. For example,while continued eating aids in the speed of recovery of normal intestinal function, herein the experts suggest eating as little as possible. However, continuous hydration with fluid intake was also prescribed, and remains a paramount part of treatment today. [Robert Baikie, MD, was a military surgeon with the Thirty-sixth Native Infantry in Madras, retiring from service in 1844.] Indeed, as Baikie predicts, in 1849, a second major outbreak spread across Europe. In London, it was the worst outbreak in the city's history, claiming 14,137 lives, over twice as many as the 1832 outbreak, and also claiming 5,308 lives in the major port city of Liverpool. Excerpts from the letter: "It will doubtless at this time, when cholera appears to be rapidly approaching, be both interesting & useful to know how the disease was treated by the celebrated Priessnitz of Graefenberg, during the last epidemic of 1832-33, when, as stated from good authority he had from 30-40 cases brought to him , & did not lose one. The subjoined was taken down from his own lips by a German friend who communicated it to me..." "[from Priessnitz]... In light cases it was found sufficient to use sitting baths at 59 degrees continued in some cases so long as two hours, with uninterrupted friction of the abdomen & extremities, plentiful drinking of cold water, & thereafter 1 or 2 clysters... In several cases where cramps... paralysis had already come on, the patient was put into a half bath... rubbed while every part of the body attained natural warmth... several hours... then packed in a wet sheet till gentle perspiration came on... frequent enemata of cold water, & sitting baths... according as severe pain in the belly or cramps in the bowels occurred... The after cure consisted of repeated wet packing, 2 long side baths daily, 2 enemata daily, & compress round the body. The patient to eat as little as possible... light white bread & cold water being the best diet." [end] "... The mode of treatment recommended by his celebrated scholar Francke (Rausse)... used the sitting baths & shallow baths at a temperature of 65 degrees to 68 degrees & not more than 20 minutes... Instead of the wet packing, he put the patient to bed, & covered him up warm... washed in a half bath, or if very weak, gently washed down in bed..." "The case above described, which occurred just after M. Franke's melancholy death, was treated on his principles by his pupil & assistant M. Halin." End Excerpts. Vincenz Priessnitz, also written Prießnitz (1799-1851) was a peasant farmer in Gräfenberg, Austrian Silesia, who is generally considered the founder of modern hydrotherapy, which is used in alternative and orthodox medicine. Priessnitz stressed remedies such as suitable food, air, exercise, rest and water, over conventional medicine. Priessnitz gave water treatments to patients of the Great Cholera Pandemic of 1832. Heinrich Friedrich Francke (1805-1848) (Pseudonym: J. H. Rausse) was an expert in hydrotherapy, and wrote several papers on the subject beginning in 1839. His enthusiasm for the treatment method came after a water cure with Priessnitz in Gräfenberg, 1838. Francke subsequently opened his own cold water treatment facilities. . Very Good.
