        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. .

        Rare Force engraving of the Declaration of Independence printed in 1848

      The Peter Force engraving of the Declaration of Independence, with remarkably exact renditions of the signers? hands. One of the best representations of the original manuscript Declaration, perhaps as few as 500 copies issued. Broadside: "The Unanimous Declaration of the Thirteen United States of America." [Washington: M. St. Clair Clarke and Peter Force, 1848], one page 26" x 29", copperplate engraving on thin rice paper. 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

        Das Gefecht bei Kandern und Tod des Generallieutenants von Gagern am 20. April 1848. Nach officiellen Aktenstücken und den Erklärungen des Badischen Obersten von Hinkeldey, des Großherzogl. 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. Titel etwas feuchtfleckig, durchgehend braunfleckig.

        Ether and Chloroform; A Compendium of their History, surgical Use, Dangers, and Discovery. + Anaesthetic Agents, their mode of Exhibition and physiological effects.

      . From the Boston Medical and Surgical Journal; And the Transactions of the American Medical Association, Vo. 1. - Boston: David Clapp, Printer ...184, Washington Street, 1848, 8°, 1 Bl., 27 pp. + 18 pp., Orig. Broschiert.. FIRST EDITION of one of the most significant early papers on anesthesia! - - This is a very good to fine copy in the original rare blue wrappers as the copy in the NLM. - The first article was originally published in the Boston Medical Surgical Journal in 1846. The second article is from the Transactions of the American Medical Association, Vol. 1. - - "Bigelow's speedy publication of Morton's discovery , and his subsequent advocacy of ether assured its adoption throughout the civilized world. The above work deals with the priority claims in general and with a defense of Morton's claim in particular" and contains detailed information on their surgical use, dangers and history." Garrison & Morton - - Bigelow had great concern for the suffering of surgical patients and was interested in finding an ideal agent, which could be used as an anesthetic. Ether had the potential to be of use though there was concern over its flammability. Bigelow used ether and published his observations on use of vapors from sulphuric ether in the Boston Medical Surgical Journal in 1846. In the present report, Bigelow discusses the pros and cons on using ether vapors or chloroform and compares this, in the second article, with other anesthetic agents. This clinical research was a major advancement for surgical operations where pain to the patient was greatly minimized or not felt during the surgery. - - Henry Jacob Bigelow (1818-1880), the Boston surgeon, is noted for important contributions to surgery and for having published the first account of the use of ether in a surgical operation. He attended the Boston Latin School, entered Harvard at the age of fifteen years, and was a graduated with the class of 1837. He then studied medicine with his father as preceptor, and attended lectures at the medical schools of Harvard and Dartmouth. In 1838 and 1839 he served as a house surgeon at the Massachusetts General Hospital, and obtained the degree of doctor of medicine from Harvard Medical School. - Bigelow also made important surgical contributions. Through his Boylston Prize essay, Manual of Orthopedic Surgery (1844), he directed attention to a field of surgical endeavor until then neglected in America. In 1869 he described the iliofemoral ligament and its mechanism, and demonstrated the importance of the structure in reducing dislocations of the hip by the flexion method which had been advocated earlier by William W. Reid. Bigelow also improved an instrument (lithotrite) for crushing stones of the bladder, and perfected an evacuator of large caliber for immediate removal of the fragments. He designated the operation "litholaplaxy". - - Rare - RLIN locates 4 copies, some evidently without the original wrapper with its collective title. - - Garrison & Morton No. 5730

Tomes invented numerous dental instruments, including a set of anatomically correct forceps for tooth extraction. He contributed much toward raising the professional status of dentistry, co-founding the Odontological Society, persuading the Royal College of Surgeons to grant a dental license, helping to establish the Dental Hospital of London, and serving as first president of the British Dental Association. In 1856 Tomes described and drew the dentin fibrils now named for him (see G-M 3683.1). His Course of Lectures, originally published serially in the Medical Gazette, won the praise of Virchow. </p>

        Baumstudie

      um 1848. Bleistift auf Papier, Wasserzeichen: Mondsichel mit Gesicht, 23 x 26,3 cm. Dieses Werk gehört zu einer Gruppe von Arbeiten Heinrich Drebers, welches einen interessanten Einblick in die Veränderung seines Zeichenstils ermöglicht, den der Künstler seit seiner Abreise nach Italien und dem damit einhergehenden Verlassen des Wirkungskreises seines Lehrer Ludwig Richter stetig weiterentwickelte. Während seiner Lehrjahre in Dresden hat er vornehmlich die Feder zum Ausführen seiner Blätter verwendet und sich dabei an den klaren Linien seines Lehrers orientiert. Doch als Dreber nach Italien kommt, ändert sich seine Auffassung und der Zeichenstift wird ihm zunehmend zum freien Experimentierfeld. Diese Baumstudien steht, obwohl einige Zeit nach seiner Ankunft in Italien entstanden, der Dresdner Zeit am nächsten und markieren somit den Anfang des Wandlungsprozesses. In ihr ist der Drang nach Belebung durch Detailtreue noch deutlich zu erkennen. Jedes Blatt, jede Verwachsung werden notiert. Doch dies ist nur Ausgangspunkt. Bereits hier deutet sich die neue Funktion des Stiftes an, wenn die Linie zwischen Umriss und Flächenstruktur changiert. Beides beginnt hier aufzubrechen und den Aspekt der markierenden Linie zunehmen in den Hintergrund zu drängen.

        Ko-i-staun Foot Soldiery in Summer Costume, actively employed among the Rocks

      London: Hering & Remington, 1848. An arresting image of a participant in the First Afghan War of 1838-1842. A powerful image from James Rattray&#39;s seminal work "Scenery, Inhabitants, & Costumes, of Afghaunistan". Published in London between 1847 and 1848, this important work was one of the first texts to chronicle the British conflict in Afghanistan. Rattray, who served with the 2nd Grenadiers, Bengal Army, during the conflict, took great pains to note specific details of dress and local customs of the Afghani soldiers and statesmen that he came in contact with. This beautiful lithograph is a wonderful example of Rattray&#39;s meticulous work and keen eye for detail. The main subject is Mir Alam standing overlooking a pass armed with a &#39;juzzail&#39;, a favoured type of large heavy Afghan rifle. He was initially a member of a notorious band of Kohistani robbers who operated on the road to Turkestan, north-west of Begram. The band, and its leader, subsequently enrolled and served with distinction as part of the infantry escort of Rattray&#39;s brother . Rattray wrote: "Coistaun has always been remarkable for the war-like character of its inhabitants, who average some forty thousand families famous for the efficiency and excellence of their Pyadas (foot-soldiery). As light infantry they are unrivalled, and from their numbers and determined courage, are of considerable importance in the event of any revolution in which they may take part." Cf. Abbey Travel II, 513. Tinted lithograph by R. Carrick, hand-coloured and heightened with gum arabic.
