        TO THE PEOPLE OF THE UNITED STATES [caption title].

      Washington: C.W. Fenton, [ca. 1848]. - Broadside, 19 x 12 inches. Printed in three columns of dense text. Light foxing, primarily to top edge. Very good. Description of the design of the Washington National Monument, with an announcement from the Washington National Monument Society that construction has commenced with the laying of the cornerstone on July 4, 1848. Though the importance of memorializing George Washington had been recognized shortly after his death - Samuel Blodgett's broadside of 1801 aimed to accomplish the very same - it was during the 100th-year anniversary of his birth that gave renewed impetus to the attempts of the American people to celebrate his life and accomplishments. Inspired by his loyalty, patriotism, and selfless leadership during and after the Revolutionary War, concerned citizens gathered in 1833 and formed the Washington National Monument Society, the sole purpose of which was to erect a fitting monument Washington's name. By 1836, Richard Mills had been chosen as the architect; but under heavy criticism of the design as well as the estimated cost, the project halted until 1848, when President Zachary Taylor laid the first cornerstone and construction finally began. By 1854 donations ceased, and the project was once again stalled and it was not until 1884 that Washington saw its monument complete. The present broadside describes the proposed monument in great detail, giving exact specifications for all its measurements and edifices. "This Design embraces the idea of a grand circular colonnaded building 250 feet in diameter, and 100 feet high, from which springs an obelisk shaft 70 feet at the base and 500 feet high, making a total elevation of 600 feet. . In the centre of the Monument is placed the tomb of Washington, to receive his remains, should they be removed thither, the descent to which is by a broad flight of steps lighted by the same light which illumines his statue." Of course, Washington remained buried at Mt. Vernon even after the Monument was finished. A handsome document describing the grand memorial to our Founding Father.

        Beiträge zur praktischen Chirurgie. Nebst Bericht über die chirurgisch-augenärztliche Klinik der Königlichen Universität zu Halle für die Zeit von 1831-1847.

      - Berlin, Verlag A.Förstner, 1848, Gr.8°, XXXIX, (1), 314, (1), Holzschnitte und vier lith. Tafeln, im Halbleinenband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe der 'Beiträge zur practischen Chirurgie'. Ernst Blasius beschäftigt sich in diesem seltenen und kostbaren Band vorwiegend mit Fragen der plastischen Chirurgie, insbesondere 'Bildung der Oberlippe', 'Operation der mit Wolfsrachen verbundener Hasenscharte (nebst Bemerkungen über diese Missbildung)' und 'Operatio colobomatis palpebrae'. - - Das Werk ist nicht nur dem 'Andenken Dieffenbachs" gewidmet sondern setzt sich insbesondere mit Dieffenbach auseinander, und so schreibt Blasius in seinem Vorwort folgende Bemerkung: "Ich habe dieses Buch dem Andenken Dieffenbachs gewidmet und wünsche damit nochmals meine hohe Achtung gegen den Mann auszudrücken, welcher mit seiner Genialität den Theil der Chirurgie ausgeübt und cultiviert hat, dessen theoretische und praktische Betreibung meine Thätigkeit zu allen Zeiten am lebhaftesten angeregt hat. Ein Abschnitt dieses Buch enthält eine entschiedene Opposition gegen Dieffenbach gerade in demjenigen Theile der operativen Praxis, in welchen derselbe am meisten geglänzt hat, in der chirurgischen Praxis; ich schrieb dies, als noch Niemand von Dieffenbachs Tode eine eine Ahnung haben konnte, ich schrieb die Opposition dem Lebenden gegenüber; über die Verfahrungsweisen eines Verstorbenen würde mein Urtheil zwar nicht anders ausgefallen, aber vielleicht hier und da anders ausgedrückt worden sein.". - First Edition. Blasius was one of the most active German practioners of plastic surgery in the 19th century, developing, and or improving operations for reconstructing the nose, ear, lip, cheek, mouth and eyelid, as well as methods for removing scars and repairing defects of the genitals. He recommended against using remnants of the old nose or the hairy scalp in rhinoplasty, and attempted to create mucous membrane linings for his new noses by transplanting pieces of the upper lip. Three of the four plates in his "Beiträge" illustrate plastic operations - rhinoplasty, cheiloplasty and the removal of contracted scar tissue from the neck. Scare - Zeis 484 (6 Einträge).

Original dark brown cloth with paper label title "New Mexico, and California, by Emory, Abert, Cooke, and Johnston". Contains some scuffs and nicks. Right spine edge is loose. Pages are age-toned and stiff with a few foxed. Includes wonderful pen and ink drawings in fine condition. Two fold out maps and three maps of battles in California with the Mexicans. Large fold-out map with 5" tear from inner margin affecting the map, "The Territory of New Mexico, 1846-47"; 67 plates. Page 454 misprinted as 754. 614pp. Overall GOOD minus condition. Extreemely scarce first edition. Damp staining to bottom corner throughout. Previous owner's notes on first page from 1929. Includes the reports of J.W. Abert and Philip St. George Cooke. Together they summarize the activity of the U.S. Army to the west of Santa Fe after the capture of New Mexico by the Army of the West. The first folding map is Philip St. George Cooke's "Sketch of Part of the march & Wagon road of Lt. Colonel Cooke, from Santa Fe to the Pacific Ocean, 1846-7." This shows the route of the Mormon Battalion from Santa Fe to the Gila River. The other, "Map of the Territory of New Mexico," was compiled by Lieutenants Abert and Peck after the conquest of New Mexico. Both are important contributions to western cartography. Abert's report includes material on the Indians of New Mexico and their languages. The Abert report also includes all of his views of New Mexico, the best group of early New Mexico views published. Wagner-Camp is in error in its collation of this edition, mistakenly calling for only forty plates, plus those of the Abert report. William Hemsley Emory (September 7, 1811 -- December 1, 1887) was an United States Army officer and surveyor of Texas. Emory was born in Queen Anne's County, Maryland, on his family's "Poplar Grove" estate. He attended the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York, and graduated in 1831. Assigned as a second lieutenant, he served in the Corps of Engineers until he resigned from the service in 1836 to pursue civil engineering, but he returned to the service in 1838.During that same year, he married a great-grandaughter of Benjamin Franklin, Matilda Wilkins Bache of Philadelphia. The couple would have three children. During his second stint in the army, he was successively promoted from lieutenant to captain and finally to major. He specialized in mapping the United States border, including the Texas-Mexico border, the United States-Canadian border(1844–1866) and the Gadsen Purchase (1854 -- 1857). In 1844, Emory served in an expedition that produced a new map of Texan claims westward to the Rio Grande River. He came to public attention as the author of the Notes of a Military Reconnaissance from Fort Leavenworth in Missouri to San Diego, California, published by the Thirtieth United States Congress in 1848. This report described terrain and rivers, cities and forts and made observations about Indians, Mexicans, primarily in New Mexico Territory, Arizona Territory and Southern California. It was and is considered one of the important chronicles and descriptions of the historic Southwest, particularly noted for its maps. Emory was a reliable and conscientous cartographer.

        Publisher's Prospectus

      1848. "Would it Not be Well for All of us to Become Lawyers, So That We May Come in for a Share of the Spoils?" [Legal Publishing]. Indiana Law Reporter. Richard Randall. [Publisher's Prospectus for the Constitution and Laws of Indiana and the Indiana Law Reporter]. Jeffersonville, IA, [1848]. 12-1/2" x 7-1/2" broadside. Light toning, faint horizontal fold lines, a copy of tiny spots, otherwise fine. * Issued to salesmen, this is a prospectus and subscription form for two titles published by Randall, the Constitution and Laws of Indiana, a handbook, and the Indiana Law Reporter, a monthly publication. Both titles are aimed at laymen. The prospectus displays an intense antipathy to lawyers and plays on the popular ideas of self-reliance, the shrewdness of the common man and upward mobility. The annotation for the Constitution and Laws states: "As the Lawyers seem to have all the honors and emoluments of office thrust upon them would it not be well for all of us to become Lawyers, so that we may come in for a share of the spoils?" "[F]or only 25 cents [this book] will give you enough law at least to teach you how to prevent the Lawyers from getting their fingers in your pocket. (...) EVERY MAN, who claims the title of FREEMAN, ought to understand the Constitution and Laws by which he is governed. (...) Many of our eminent Statesmen have risen from the humblest stations in life, to greatness and dignity. Most of them, in fact, were born in our Buckeye cabins, and were nurtured in the forests of nature." It also plays on the desire to save money. The description of the Indiana Law Reporter notes that "an acquaintance with the Law, and with the necessary forms of drawing up instruments of writing, may save you hundreds if not thousands of dollars." We found no information about Richard Randall or his books. It is quite possible that his venture failed. It is equally possible that he was a confidence man, a predecessor of the present-day internet scammer.

        SACRED AND LEGENDARY ART

      London.: Longman, Green, Brown et al.. Two volume set uniformly bound in 3/4 dark brown morocco. 1848. 1st edition. hb. 8vo, pp. 387, 439. "Containing Legends of the Angels and Archangels, The Evangelists, The Apostles, The Doctors of the Church...." . Anna Brownell Jameson (1794-1860) was an art and literary critic. Born in Dublin as Anna Murphy, she spent her early adulthood as a governess, in which capacity she toured Europe. In 1825 she published "A Lady's Diary" (later "Diary of an Ennuyee"), a fictionalized account of her European tour. She married lawyer Robert Jameson in the same year, but they separated in 1829, when he became a judge in Dominica, and later in Upper Canada (now Ontario). In 1836, she joined her husband temporarily in Toronto, out of which experience she wrote the frank and informative "Winter Studies and Summer Rambles" (published 1838). She returned to England and continued writing where she became increasingly more respected as a critic. These two magnificent volumes are bound by Tout (probably around 1900), and show blind tooling and gilt rules to the boards, with raised bands to the spines, which are embellished with gilt lettering and ornamentation. Marbled eps and boards, with silk ribbon marker and t.e.g. The spines are rubbed at the crown and bottom, and the corners of the boards show similar light rubbing. Joints and hinges are tight, endpapers are clean and free of markings. Slight soiling to outer edges of some of the preliminary pages, otherwise contents are very clean. .

By 1820 the original Declaration of Independence (now housed at the National Archives in Washington, D.C.) showed serious signs of age and wear from handling. John Quincy Adams, then Secretary of State, commissioned William J. Stone to engrave an exact copy of the original onto a copper plate. In 1823, Congress ordered 200 official copies printed on vellum. Fewer than 40 of Stone?s printing on vellum are known to have survived, with at least 21 of those housed in institutions and public collections. ?These copies are characterized by the legend engraved in the left superi

Hessischen Majors Cronenbold, sowie des Dr. Hecker, Kaisers u. A. Nebst einer Lebensbeschreibung des Generallieutenants von Gagern

      Karlsruhe, Nöldeke 1848.. 59 S. Bedruckter Orig.-Umschlag. Erster Druck der ersten Ausgabe. - Das in Südbaden statt gefundene Gefecht bei Kandern (bzw. Scheideck) zwischen dem von Friedrich Hecker geführtem Revolutionszug und den Truppen des Deutschen Bundes unter dem Befehl General Friedrich von Gagerns gilt als das zentrale Ereignis des Aprilaufstandes. Gagern fand bei dem kurzen Gefecht zwar den Tod, aber die revolutionären Truppen wurden in die Flucht geschlagen, was den Beginn der Niederwerfung des Aufstandes bedeutete. Oberst Hinckeldey warf Friedrich Hecker vor, den General von Gagern ermordet zu haben: Nachdem den Aufständischen die Munition ausgegangen ist, sei Gagern auf sie zugegangen um eine Kapitulationsverhandlung einzuleiten. Hecker persönlich hätte ihn heimtückisch erschossen; der Vorwurf verfolgte den bald in die USA geflüchteten Revolutionär noch bis in die 1870er Jahre. Nach dem heutigen Stand der Forschung ist Gagern allerdings tatsächlich während der Kampfhandlungen gefallen. - Umschlag fleckig und etwas lädiert.
