        Geographical Memoir upon Upper California, in Illustration of the Map of California

      Washington DC: Wendell and Van Benthuysen, 1848. Washington DC: Wendell and Van Benthuysen, 1848. Senate Issue. 67pp. Octavo [23 cm] Rebound in plain tan boards with the title stamped in black on the front board. Preuss's map is present and in nice condition. The report of this third expedition of Fremont is uncharastically short, due to Fremont's court martial and resignation from military service. Nevertheless, it enjoyed great popularity since the discovery of gold was announced almost simultaneously with its publication. In fact, it is likely that the "El Dorado Gold Region" labels on the map were added at the very last moment before issue.& & The Preuss map contained here is one of the greatest cartographic achievements of the American West and helped to fill in the great unknown of the Great Basin and points farther West. According to Wheat "they constitute the only detailed reports ever made by Fremont on his expedition of 1845-1846; his journals subsequently were burned, and by the time he came to write his Memoirs he had forgotten nearly everything he did not remember incorrectly." & This report & & The Preuss map also was the first to show the Mormon Zion (albeit wrong - the map shows the Mormon settlement at the northern shore of Utah Lake) and the first to use the name 'Golden Gate' in reference to the San Francisco Bay.& & Fremont described the work as follows "The map has been constructed expressly to exhibit the two countries of Oregon and the Alta California together. It is believed to be the most correct that has appeared of either of them; and it is certainly the only one that shows the structure and configuration of the interior of Upper California." With this great map of 1848 John Charles Fremont passes from the Western cartographic scene. Wheat 559. Moffat 17 Wagner-Camp 150:1. Graff 1429. Howes F366

        Die medicinische Reform. Eine Wochenschrift, erschienen vom 10. Juli 1848 bis zum 29. Juni 1849

      Berlin Reimer, 1848-1849 (52 Hefte und 1 Extrablatt, alles Erschienene in 1 Bd.).. 4° (27,5:23cm), mod. Halbleinwand, etwas stockfleckig, 272 (statt 276 S. udn 4 S. (Extrablatt); S, 211/12 und 275/76 in Fotokopie ergänzt. seltene Originalausgabe der berühmten Zeitschrift mit dem programmatischen Anspruch, "beim Abräumen des alten Schutts und dem Aufbau der neuen Institutionen thätig zu sein" (Einleitung). Virchow und sein Freund Leubuscher - beide gerade 26 Jahre alt - verstanden sich auch als Teil der allgemeinen Reformbewegung seit der März-Revolution, und nach ihrer Meinung sind "die Aerzte die natürlichen Anwälte der Armen und die sociale Frage fällt zu einem erheblichen Theil in ihre Jurisdiction". 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.

A collection of the theological writings of former Bishop of Salisbury, John Jewel Bishop. Edited for the Parker society by the Rev. John Ayre. Jewels sacramental theology follows the early Protestant reformers, such as Luther and Calvin. Jewel defines sacraments as the sacred signs and ceremonies which Christ commanded us to use, that he might by them represent to our eyes the mysteries of our salvation, and most strongly confirm the faith we have in his blood, and seal in our hearts his grace (II. 11). This is especially close to Calvins own definition of a sacrament. From the antiquarian library of Emeritus Professor David Arthur Palin (bookplate to front pastedowns), collected over a period of some forty years. Condition: Rebound in blue cloth. Externally, generally smart, though with some marks. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are bright, and quite clean, though with the occasional patch of foxing and some handling marks.

His Jrme Paturot a la recherche de 10 meilleure des republiques (1848) was a satire on the new republican ideas. After the coup d'tat of 1849 he ceased to take part in public life, and devoted himself entirely to the study of political economy. To this period belong his La Vie de l'emploi (1855); L'Industrie en Europe (1856); and Etudes sur le rgime de nos manufactures (1859).

Caruel". (Augusto Béguinot in Enciclopedia Italiana, XXVI, p. 380). Il Parlatore (Palermo, 1816-Firenze, 1877) fu illustre botanico, professore all'Università di Firenze e direttore del locale Orto Botanico nonché del locale Museo Scientifico (succedendo al Matteucci), celebre soprattutto per questa vasta "Flora Italiana" e per la "Flora Panormitana", dedicata alle piante di Palermo e del suo circondario.

        Dealings with the Firm Dombey and Son, Wholesale, Retail, and Exportation

      London: Bradbury & Evans, 1848. London: Bradbury & Evans, 1848 Illustrated by Hablot Knight Browne ("Phiz"). First edition, first printing. Bound in contemporary ¾ light brown calf over red marbled boards, with five raised bands to the spine, contrasting black leather label lettered in gilt to the spine, spine compartments ruled in gilt. A very good copy, with some wear and minor rubbing to the extremities, light toning to the spine, front board starting at the spine head, light offsetting to the illustrated plates including the frontispiece and vignette title page, former owner's inscription to the vignette title page, otherwise bright and clean pages. Smith I, 8. Originally published serially in twenty parts issued in nineteen monthly installments from October 1846 - April 1848, Dombey and Son is a novel about the wealthy Dombey family who owns the titular shipping company Dombey and Son. The text follows Paul Dombey, Sr., who has high hopes for his sickly son, Paul, as a future business partner, and neglects his healthy daughter, Florence. Throughout the text, Dickens explores the relationship between one's personal and professional lives as well as the relationship between parent and child. Considered the text that solidified his reputation as a renowned author, Dombey and Son is regarded as Dickens' first artistically mature work, with carefully plotted serial installments and a preplanned outline for the entire work. Dickens wrote this book in various locations including Switzerland, England, and France. Dombey and Son contains 40 illustrations by Browne, published and signed under the pseudonym Phiz, including two plates that were etched as well as drawn by the illustrator. Dombey and Son marked a successful experiment in new illustration techniques; it contains the first published example of a "dark plate," appropriately titled "On the Dark Road" (page 457), "which was created by a machine process that tinted the etched plate and heightened its black-and-white contrast." Additionally, Dombey and Son is the first example of Browne's horizontal illustrations for Dickens' novels. He would continue to use both of these techniques in Dickens' next novel, David Copperfield.. Illus. by Browne, Hablot Knight. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

        Vanity Fair

      London: Bradbury and Evans., 1848. London: Bradbury and Evans., 1848. A Novel without a Hero. With illustrations on steel and wood by the author. Octavo (223 × 138 mm). Contemporary three-quarter morocco, marbled boards, spine lettered and decorated in gilt, front board double ruled in gilt, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. 40 engraved plates including frontispiece and vignette title page.

First edition in book form, mixed issue with title page and page 326 in the second state but page 453 with the correct first issue reading of "Mr. Pitt" rather than "Sir Pitt". Vanity Fair is of one of the most popular and enduring of mid-century Victorian fictions. With the first parts being published in the same year as Brontë's Jane Eyre and the last in the year of Dickens's Dombey and Son, Thackeray's novel was aimed squarely at a voracious public appetite for periodical novels.

        MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES TO THE TWO HOUSES OF CONGRESS, AT THE COMMENCEMENT OF THE SECOND SESSION OF THE THIRTIETH CONGRESS. DECEMBER 5, 1848

      Washington. 1848.. Washington. 1848.. 44pp. Stitched as issued. Contemporary presentation inscription by James K. Polk at head of title. Near fine. In a black morocco clamshell case, spine gilt. Ex. Doc. No. 1, Second Session of the Thirtieth Congress, inscribed at the top in Polk's hand "With the Respects of J.H. Polk." This is the executive section of this report, Polk's State of the Union message delivered in December 1848, separately issued from the larger executive document with supporting reports. The message begins by reviewing the events of the Mexican War, its conclusion, and the vast addition of land to the United States. Polk then moves on to the first official announcement of the discovery of gold in California. "It was known that mines of the precious metals existed to a considerable extent in California at the time of its acquisition. Recent discoveries render it probable that these mines are more extensive and valuable than was anticipated.... The accounts of the abundance of gold in that territory are of such an extraordinary character as would scarcely command belief were they not corroborated by the authentic reports of officers in public service...there were about four thousand persons engaged in collecting gold....There is every reason to believe that the number of persons so employed has since been augments." By the time Polk delivered this address he was a sick man; the extraordinary events of his Presidency took a heavy toll on his health, and he did not run for reelection. He died in June, 1849, only a few months after leaving office. A rare Polk presentation, and a landmark document. KURUTZ 105. COWAN, p.426. HOWES P446, "aa."

An early set of Lamartine'sfascinating history of the Girondins, or Girondists, in the original French. Featuring a portrait frontispiece of the writer and numerous further portrait plates. With bookseller's labels of P. Rolandi, Foreign Bookseller, Berners St to versos of front free-endpapers. Volumes I, III, IV, V, VI, VII and VIII of eight volumes. The Girondists (in French: Girondins, and sometimes Brissotins) were a political faction in France within the Legislative Assembly and the National Convention during the French Revolution. The Girondists were a group of loosely-affiliated individuals rather than an organised political party with a clear ideology, and the name was at first informally applied because the most prominent exponents of their point of view were deputies to the States-general from Gironde. Alphonse Marie Louis de Prat de Lamartine (21 October 1790 28 February 1869) was a French writer, poet and politician who was instrumental in the foundation of the Second Republic. A political idealist who supported democracy and pacifism, during his term as a politician in the Second Republic, he led efforts that eventually led to the abolition of slavery and the death penalty, as well as the enshrinement of the right to work and the short-lived national workshop programs. He is considered to be the first French romantic poet, and was acknowledged by Paul Verlaine and the Symbolists as an important influence. Condition: In half calf bindings with marbled boards. Externally rubbed, three and a half spine labels missing and four coming away. Three hinges strained, seven slightly strained, but all holding firm. Internally, firmly bound. Very bright throughout, and intermittently clean, with light scattered spotting throughout,heavier to the first and last pages and prominent to volume I. Overall: GOOD..
