        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Bern, 22. Januar 1848.. 3½ SS. 8vo. Doppelblatt.. An Georg Gottfried Gervinus: &quote;Sie werden finden Ihre mündliche Erinnerung bisweilen Correspondenzen für die Deutsche Zeitung zu liefern haben wenig gefruchtet. Indem ich mich entschuldigen muß, bitte ich Sie zu berücksichtigen, daß meine Zeit so sehr in Anspruch genommen ist, daß ich wirklich zu solchen Mittheilungen nicht die Muße finde wie ich es selbst wünschen möchte. Heute sende ich nun die Note die diesen Bundestag in der Tagsatzung verlesen wurde mit einigen darauf bezüglichen Bemerkungen die Sie nach Guthdünken für die deutsche Zeitung benu[t]zen mögen. [...] Die letzten Andeutungen betreffend den deutschen Bundestag beruhen auf zuverlässigen Mittheilungen. Ihr Blatt hat schon so oft die Interessen der Schweiz in Schutz genommen, daß Sie gewiß gerne auch Einiges beifügen, das geeignet sein kann die deutschen Staaten von der Bahn abzumahnen auf welche man dieselben hinzutreiben sich viele Mühe giebt [...]&quote;. Kern, der zu den &quote;bedeutendsten schweizerischen Staatsmännern und Diplomaten des 19.Jahrhunderts&quote; zählt, war u. a. Präsident des eidgenössischen Schulrats und reformierte als solcher das kantonale Schulwesen und begründete die Einrichtung des eidgenössischen Polytechnikums; von 1857 bis 83 amtierte er als bevollmächtigter Minister in Paris. Die Memoiren des &quote;Begründers der schweizerischen Berufsdiplomatie&quote; (Historisches Lex. d. Schweiz, s. v.) erschienen 1887 unter dem Titel &quote;Souvenirs politiques&quote;. - Bl. 2 verso mit altem Sammlervermerk zum Verfasser bzw. zur Provenienz (&quote;Don[atio] Pr. Gervinus&quote;).

        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.

        JOURNAL OF WILLIAM H. RICHARDSON, A PRIVATE SOLDIER IN THE CAMPAIGN OF NEW AND OLD MEXICO.

      New York: Published by William H. Richardson, . 1848 - 96pp. plus three wood-engraved plates, one in- text illustration, and a facsimile manuscript. Original pictorial green wrappers. Early ownership signature at top of front wrapper. Very clean and fresh internally. Near fine. Third edition, after the very rare first edition of 1847 and the rare second edition of 1848, of this important Wagner-Camp and Mexican War title. This third edition remains quite scarce and is seldom met with in commerce. Richardson enlisted as a mounted volunteer due to patriotism engendered on the 4th of July in Carrollton, Missouri. He took part in Doniphan's expedition over the Santa Fe Trail in the fall of 1846, heading south to El Paso by the first of the New Year, then on to Chihuahua and eventually to Matamoros, where the command shipped by boat to New Orleans. By July 10, Richardson was back home in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and the first edition of his fascinating journal was published before the end of 1847 in the nearest city, Baltimore. An important and well written account of overland travel along the Santa Fe Trail during the Mexican War. GRAFF, FIFTY TEXAS RARITIES 33 (1st ed). WAGNER-CAMP 137:3. CLARK II:164. HOWES R262.

        Newport and its Environs, illustrated by a series of views

      Newport 1848 - Contemporary maroon cloth, upper cover with centrally blocked panel containing title 'Newport / and / environs' lettered in gilt. The earliest collection of Newport views by the prominent Newport architect, George Champlin Mason. These views, a pastoral lithographic tour, are very rare, and are among the first to showcase the town as a recreational haven. OCLC cites only eleven plates and no descriptive text, and locates only four copies in institutional libraries. Bartlett describes only a small format work by Mason: Newport Illustrated, in a Series of Pen & Pencil Sketches. (New York, 1854). "George Champlin Mason was a native of Newport and a man of many talents -- an artist, writer, and prolific architect. Eventually, he took his son into partnership for the design of some of the finest homes and estates in Newport dating from the second half of the nineteenth century. When in his twenties, the elder Mason spent two years abroad, where he studied drawing and architecture in Paris, Florence, and Rome. On his return, Mason prepared the drawings for his first published work, Newport and its environs . It was designated "Volume I," although there is no sign that a second volume ever materialized. All of the views bear Mason's signature and tend to emphasize -- with their attention to cows, ducks, sheep, streams, and fishing -- the pastoral quality of Newport's surroundings" (Deak). Deak calls in error for twelve lithographs, plus the elaborate titlepage. The titlepage vignette which is captioned "Fort Dumpling" is the subject of the first descriptive leaf, and is also included in the list of twelve plates which appears across the top of the titlepage. It is not known who executed the lithography, but in the lower margin of each text leaf, 'Francis Hart, Printer,' of New York is credited with the letterpress. A complete list of the plates follows, in order of appearance: 1) "Fort Dumpling." (title vignette). 2) "Newport from Fort Dunham." 3) "Ellison's Rock near Conrad's Cave." 4) "The Glen." 5) "The Bluff Near Purgatory." 6) "Newport Harbour, from the Blue Rocks." 7) "Easton's Beach." 8) "Head Quarters of Genl. Prescott in 1777." 9) "Coggeshall's Ledge." 10) "Old Stone Mill, Newport." 11) "State House and Parade." 12) "Whitehall." Bartlett p.182 (ref,); Bradford 3247; Deak, Picturing America 558; OCLC 36985187; Sabin 45442. (12 1/8 x 16 7/8 inches). Tinted lithographic title with vignette. 11 lithographic plates, all after Mason. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
