        2 autograph letters signed. 1848-1857

      Camden Town 1848 - De Morgan, Augustus (1806-71). (1). Autograph letter signed to an unidentified correspondent. Camden Town, Jan. 27, 1848. 1 page plus integral blank. 180 x 114 mm. (2) Autograph letter signed to Admiral Sir Francis Beaufort (1774-1857). Camden Town, October 7, 1857. 2-1/2pp. 183 x 114 mm. Some foxing, blank portion of second leaf cut away. Together 2 letters, both mounted on single sheet together with printed obituary notice and wood-engraved portrait. Two dryly humorous letters from the mathematician Augustus de Morgan, known for formulating De Morgan's laws or De Morgan's theorem (rules in formal logic relating pairs of dual logical operators in a systematic manner expressed in terms of negation), and for introducing the term "mathematical induction" and making its idea rigorous. De Morgan was also the author of Arithmetical Books from the Invention of Printing to the Present Time (1847), which has been described as "the first significant work of scientific bibliography" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). De Morgan's 1848 letter reads as follows: I can't find Leverrier's Christian names-or, not to make any assumption which a member of the Institute might repudiate-his prénoms. They begin with U. J. Can you tell them? Or must I put down Ulysses Jeremiah at a venture. If you can't tell them, can you calculate them. They can hardly be as difficult as a planet. If you happen to know Hencke's, pray tell them to me: but I can't demand them of you as a right which I do Leverrier's. "Leverrier" refers to Urbain Jean Joseph Leverrier (1811-77), the French astronomer whose mathematical calculations and astronomical observations of the perturbations of Uranus led directly to the discovery of Neptune. "Hencke" refers to German astronomer Karl Ludwig Hencke (1793-1866), discoverer of the asteroids 5 Astraea and 4 Vesta. The 1857 letter reads: I had a note from Mr. Smyth this morning, by which I was very glad to hear that you were able to write, and that your handwriting was still of the old firm type. This note was in answer to one which made some inquiries about your identity-not health alone, but identity-and it appears that you and I have been fellow sailors, and that 51 years ago this very month. To be sure we were, as we may say, at the two extreme ends of the chain. You commanded the Woolwich, and I commanded nothing but my mother's constant attention, being then an infant of four months old on board the Jane Duchess of Gordon E. S. But my command was in better order than yours; for my voice was sufficient per se, whereas yours would have been of little effect but for the knowledge that the nine tails and powder and ball were looming in the distance as definite possibilities. I picked up my mother's journal a few days ago, which let me into this little secret. It would do you good to see how you were cut up when you shortened sail against the wishes of the ladies. De Morgan was born in India and returned to England as an infant; his letter refers to this voyage. His correspondent, Admiral Sir Francis Beaufort, was a naval hydrographer who conducted important hydrographic surveys in South America and southern Anatolia; he served for 25 years as head of the Hydrographic Office of the British Admiralty, and invented the Beaufort scale for indicating wind force.

        [WATERCOLOR DEPICTING THE AMERICAN SURRENDER AT FORT SHELBY, PRAIRIE DU CHIEN, WISCONSIN ON JULY 20, 1814]

      [N.p., but likely Wisconsin, 1848. Approximately 6 1/2 x 10 inches. Framed, with UV3 plexiglass. In fine condition. An attractive watercolor by American army officer and noted artist of American Indians, Seth Eastman, depicting the moment of surrender by the American troops at Fort Shelby in Wisconsin during the War of 1812. Fort Shelby was the American fort built at Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin, at the junction of the Mississippi and Wisconsin rivers, in June 1814 by William Clark, governor of Louisiana Territory. It was named for Isaac Shelby, Revolutionary War soldier and first governor of Kentucky. Its purpose was to block any British advance on the headwaters of the Mississippi, but the fort fell to them after a short siege in the latter part of July 1814, and was renamed Fort McKay. The war was over too soon for this to prove of strategic value, and it was burned in May 1815 by departing British troops. The United States then constructed a major post, Fort Crawford, on the spot. Seth Eastman, a captain in the U.S. Army, was noted for his scenes of Indian life, particularly of the Sioux and the Dakotah. John Francis McDermott has called him "the premier watercolorist of the Mississippi River landscape." He was commissioned in 1849 to illustrate Henry Schoolcraft's great work on the American Indian, HISTORICAL AND STATISTICAL INFORMATION, RESPECTING THE HISTORY, CONDITION AND PROSPECTS OF THE INDIAN TRIBES OF THE UNITED STATES, 1851-57, a work for which Eastman produced over 275 pages of illustrations. Near the end of his life in the 1870s, Eastman was also commissioned by the U.S. Government to paint seventeen important American forts. Eastman's work from 1841 to 1848, during the time he was stationed at Fort Snelling at the confluence of the Minnesota and Mississippi rivers, centered on Indian life, and the Mississippi River. During this time he is known to have also painted Fort Crawford at Prairie du Chien, the fort which replaced Fort Shelby, as well as a number of watercolors in the Prairie du Chien region. In fact, Eastman himself was once stationed at Fort Crawford, his initial assignment after graduating from West Point in 1829, and his earliest known dated sketch was made there. He must have known the story of the surrender at Fort Shelby, and probably had details of the event from some who had witnessed the surrender first-hand. A handsome watercolor of the Mississippi by a noted American artist. John Francis McDermott, SETH EASTMAN'S MISSISSIPPI (University of Illinois Press, 1973).

        Vanity Fair. A Novel Without a Hero.

      London: Bradbury and Evans,, 1848. With Illustrations on Steel and Wood by the Author. Octavo (206 x 128 mm). Recent red morocco by Bayntun-Riviere, gilt titles and decoration to spine in compartments, frame gilt to covers, wide turn-ins, marbled endpapers, gilt edges, with the engraved advertisement for The Great Hoggarty Diamond bound in before the frontispiece as issued. Etched frontispiece with tissue-guard, vignette title page, 38 plates, wood-engraved vignettes and similar initials after Thackeray. Minor rubbing to extremities; an excellent copy. First edition in book form, with the three points traditionally taken to denote first issue (drop-head title in rustic lettering to page 1, the "Marquis of Steyne" vignette on page 336, later suppressed, and "Mr. Pitt" for "Sir Pitt" on page 453, line 31), although, as the novel was originally published in 20 parts between January 1847 and July 1848, such points conceivably would have been amended before serialization was completed. "Modern editions of this classic novel almost invariably omit Thackeray's vignettes and often give only a selection from his etchings. The reader is deprived thereby not only of much amusement but also of important clues to the meaning of the story" (Ray).

        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 & MortonBigelow 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

        [MANUSCRIPT] "Barque Gipsy Queen" Journal of a Passage from Liverpool to Port Philip [sic] & Sidney [sic], New South Wales in the years 1848 & 9. By William Dickinson, Cabin Passenger. David Roy, Commanding.

      An important, unpublished eyewitness account of life in Port Phillip and Sydney just prior to the gold rushes of the 1850s. [1848-1851]. Oblong octavo, contemporary full sheepskin, manuscript ownership inscription to upper board 'W. Dickinson, 1851' (the inscription is inverted; boards rubbed and ink-stained); marbled endpapers, marbled edges; manuscript in brown ink on unruled paper, [98] leaves, with [17] leaves at rear containing additional entries in pencil; [together with] a second journal of the same type, identically bound (spine lacking leather), filled in the same hand with excerpts from English historical works; with several leaves of business accounting, including a list of current prices of beer, wine and spirits in Sydney in 1851 and a list of Dickinson's personal items sold by auction in Sydney; the leaves in both volumes with toning and scattered light foxing, otherwise clean and legible throughout. William Dickinson, whose diary reveals him to have been a literate and reasonably well-educated member of the English middle classes, emigrated to Australia with the hope of starting a new life and career as a merchant. He arrived in Melbourne in April 1849 at an inauspicious time, when all of the colonies were still recovering from the economic depression of the 1840s. He spent two years in Port Phillip (which would remain part of New South Wales until July 1851), but after his attempts in business failed both there and subsequently in Sydney, he returned to England via Cape Horn in February 1851, thus completing an interrupted circumnavigation. The timing of his departure was, like that of his arrival, unfortunate to say the least, as it came just two months before Hargraves' momentous discovery and the commencement of the gold rushes that would lead to an extended period of wealth and prosperity for people of all occupations in New South Wales and Victoria. The first part of the manuscript is a detailed diary of the voyage out as a cabin passenger on the barque Gipsy Queen, from Liverpool to Melbourne via the Cape of Good Hope, which lasted from 7 December 1848 to 7 April 1849. In his outward bound journal Dickinson provides us with a thorough description of the weather, winds, navigational bearings, and the main occurrences on board. He also shares his expectations for a new life in the colonies: 'I little thought 12 months ago such would be my fate, however my intentions for undertaking this voyage were not altogether selfish, although I expect to meet with brighter prospects for ultimate successful business in the land of my adoption, than in my native country which I leave with regret perhaps never to see again' (1 January 1849). The Gipsy Queen arrived at Hobson's Bay, Port Phillip, on April 7 1849: 'Royal Hotel. In Australia. Came on shore with the Mate at 8 a.m. We landed in a boat at the Beach which is about 2 miles from Melbourne. The walk is along a flat sandy road, the country here is not very prepossessing and is liable to floods. There is a wooden erection near the Beach which is converted into a Hotel and is kept by a very eccentric character called Liardet. This spot I am informed was originally a grant from the Crown and the proprietor has been in the Colony some considerable time ... Had a stroll around the City of Melbourne ... One feels very lonely and a gloom of despondencies apt to come across one's mind being left alone in a Country where your future prospects are in the dark and not a face you know ... This is the first time I have felt homesick and really my heart is almost ready to burst partly from disappointment in the reception and also from being left alone in a strange Country.' The next twenty pages, filled in almost a year later, give an overview of Dickinson's pursuits in Port Phillip for the previous year, with descriptions of the young settlement of Melbourne, his attempts to find a job and travels through the bush to Mount Alexander, where he visited a sheep station, as well as observations of Australian farming and agriculture. These notes were made in Geelong in March 1850 where the author had come from Melbourne to restore his health. The next section of Dickinson's journal contains 'Remarks and Narrative of my career in Melbourne from March 1850', and is written during January 1851 on board the brig Freak en route from Melbourne to Sydney. It is a continuation of his notes written in Geelong, and constitutes an important first-hand account of life in pre-gold rush Melbourne. Dickinson arrived in Port Jackson on 26 January 1851: 'This has been a general holiday and is strictly observed by all classes being the 63rd Anniversary of the founding of the Colony. A splendid Regatta comes off on this day which forms the principal amusement of the day and from the natural beauty and safety of the harbour it isa highly delightful sight. The races commence at 10 a.m. and continue throughout the day, the competitors are from the smallest boats to largest coaster in the Harbour' (27 January 1851). Detailed descriptions of Sydney and Botany, and Dickinson's last unsuccessful attempts to find employment, occupy the next ten or so pages. Dickinson sadly observes in his diary that 'such was not my fate to settle in this colony at present', and the last part of the manuscript documents his return to England on board the ship Agricola (February-May 1851). The diary ends in the South Atlantic Ocean at the latitude of Brazil (Lat. 30°46'S, Long. 31°7'W). The second journal, which was kept by Dickinson on board the Agricola, contains extensive excerpts copied by him from English historical works, as well as a few leaves of his business accounting and a list of prices for wine and spirits in Sydney which were current during his visit.

        Letters from Ingersoll to James Madison and Others

      1848. 6 letters. Philadelphia Washington, D.C. 1825-1848. 6 letters. Philadelphia Washington, D.C. 1825-1848. A Notable Philadelphia Attorney Writes to James Madison and Others [Manuscript Archive]. Ingersoll, Charles Jared [1782-1862]. [Madison, James [1751-1836], And Other Recipients]. [Letters from Ingersoll to James Madison and Others]. Philadelphia or Washington, D.C. 1825-1848. 6 letters comprising 11 pages, sizes range from 7-1/4" x 3-1/2" to 10" x 8." Manuscript in ink. Light to moderate toning, fold lines, minor wear and soiling. $950. * The son of Jared Ingersoll [1749-1822], Continental Congressman and Signer of the U.S. Constitution, Charles Jared Ingersoll was a Philadelphia lawyer and Pennsylvania U.S. District Attorney and Congressman. This small but interesting collection of letters are representative of his equally distinguished legislative and judicial careers. The addressees in our group of letters include former U.S. President James Madison, lawyer and later Mayor of Philadelphia John Morin Scott and John Young Mason, jurist and then U.S. Secretary of the Navy. The letter to Madison introduces a French nobleman visiting America who wishes "to examine its institutions." The letter to Scott concerns The Postmaster General v. Eldred &c. of Ridgway, a legal case he was hearing in the Court of the U.S. Eastern District of Pennsylvania. In 1844, while serving as U.S. Representative from Pennsylvania in the 28th Congress, Ingersoll wrote a letter to Richard E. Stillwell providing a detailed response to a request for a professional memoir. Ingersoll's letter of July 17, 1844 to E.L. Burd of Chestnut Street in Philadelphia accedes with the latter's request for an introduction to the newly appointed U.S. Minister to France, William Rufus King. Burd's reply the next day was written upon the same bifolium and returned to Ingersoll with Burd's "sincere thanks." In 1847 Samuel Grice of Kensington in Philadelphia, trying of obtain a midshipman warrant in the navy for his nephew, Samuel J. Deacon, wrote Ingersoll for his help. When no immediate action was taken by the Secretary of the Navy, John Young Mason [1799-1859], Deacon himself appealed to Ingersoll via letter on April 17, 1847. In turn, Congressman Ingersoll (without endorsement or comment) forwarded the letter to the Secretary of the Navy that same day to support his case. Writing to an unnamed recipient, Ingersoll's letter of March 25, 1848 sends along an unaut.

      London: Hering & Remington, 1848. Near Fine. 1 hand-colored lithograph 429 x 533 mm. (image is 275 x 375 mm.; mat is 19.5 x 23 inches). The lithograph was created by Edmund Walker (1813 or 1814-1882) of Day & Son, after James Rattray's drawing. James Rattray (1818-1854) was a lieutenant in the British Bengal Army during the first Anglo-Afghan War, 1839-1842. The sketches he produced were published in 30 plates in Scenery, Inhabitants, & Costumes of Afghaunistan (1847-48). This is plate no. 22, in regard to which Rattray wrote: "I sketched this Uzbeg at the Fort of Lughmaunee, Cohistaun."

Etched frontispiece, vignette title page, 38 plates, 83 wood-engraved vignettes and 66 similar initials after Thackeray. With the contemporary ownership inscription of Somerset Gough Calthorpe (1831–1912), to the front pastedown. Calthorpe entered the army as a cornet in the 8th Hussars on 23 May 1848. Binder's stamp to foot of front free endpaper. 3 plates, including frontispiece, misbound but present. Spine lightly faded, minor rubbing to extremities, occasional offsetting from plates; an excellent copy. First edition in book form. This copy with one of the points traditionally taken to denote the first issue ("Mr. Pitt" for "Sir Pitt" on page 453, line 31); as the novel was originally published in 20 parts between January 1847 and July 1848, such points conceivably would have been amended before serialization was completed. "Modern editions of this classic novel almost invariably omit Thackeray's vignettes and often give only a selection from his etchings. The reader is deprived thereby not only of much amusement but also of important clues to the meaning of the story" (Ray).
