        The Reformer's Almanac for 1848 [and] The Reformer's Companion to the Almanacs.

      Wortley near Leeds: printed by Joseph Barker 1848 - 8vo., 32 + 384pp., occasional soiling and browning, 4 leaves of one issue rather cropped with loss of letters, contemporary black half calf over marbled boards, sympathetically rebacked with gilt lines and lettering. Harrison and Thompson p.32. Goldsmiths 36009 (but issues nos. 1-6 only). Not in Stammhammer. A Chartist journal edited and published by Joseph Barker, the present set comprising issue nos. 1-12 for January to October 1848. [LSE and Warwick Un. cite 13 issues, however]. The rather workaday title of this periodical belies the wealth of Chartist and radical material that Barker packs in. Not only does the editor use it as a vehicle for his own views on political reform, his experiences on his six-months' tour of America in 1847 had evidently affected and broadened his views about democracy and government. While he notes that republicanism in America was not complete and universal suffrage was certainly not established - hence the continuation of slavery which Barker condemns - nonetheless, America was a desirable country for emigrants, and he gives the would-be emigrant detailed instructions how to go about emigration with as little difficulty as possible. He roundly condemns his own country for its inequalities and endemic unfairnesses. 'We are not an enlightened nation. There are enlightened individuals in the nation, but the nation in general is unenlightened'. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Narrative of events in Borneo and the Celebes, DOWN TO THE OCCUPATION OF LABUAN: FROM THE JOURNALS OF . together with a narrative of the operations of H. M. S Iris.

      London John Murray 1848 - Two volumes, second edition, 8vo, [2], [ii], iii-xviii, 386pp., 2pp. ads at end; xii, 396pp., 8pp. ads at end numbered 1-4, 13-16, engraved portrait, with 17 wood-engraved or lithographed plates, 5 folding maps. Original red pictorial cloth gilt, yellow endpapers, volume II with small repair at head of spine, light wear, an excellent set. The acquisition of Labuan, an uninhabited island originally part of the Sultanate of Brunei, was first proposed by James Brooke, the first white Rajah of Sarawak, in order to halt piratical activities and provide a naval base against increasing French and American interests in the South China Sea. In 1846, the Sultan ceded it to Britain, with Brooke Governor of the territory. Henry Keppel, an admiral who became life-long friends with Brooke after becoming a senior naval officer in the Straits of Malacca, assisted his fight against Malay pirates and published the first version of his journals in 1846. Soon after Captain Mundy whilst in command of the British squadron in the Straits of Singapore and on the coast of Borneo also became acquainted with Brooke. "Mundy like so many sailors was enchanted with James and.was to edit the parts of his journals that were omitted in Keppel's edition" (Runciman), but in doing so he published some of the his more sanguinary deeds glorying in his battles with pirates, which some saw as the massacring of innocent savages for material gains.

        [Mexican-American War]: Autograph Letter Signed

      City of Mexico, 1848. Fine. Both sides of a single quarto leaf. Measuring 8" x 10.25". Neatly torn from a bifolium, probably by the writer, old folds from mailing, and a very small, faint stain, else just about fine. A neat and easy to read letter from Col. Zeigler to an unnamed attorney representing the sister of Corporal William Eurich, who was killed during the Siege of Puebla in September 1847. Zeigler responds in detail to the attorney's request to know of Eurich's personal effects and property, and gives a summary of his pay as both a private and corporal, of his clothing and shoe money due, as well as the "Value of Land" - presumably a land bounty due to the soldiers, which was by far the largest sum due his survivors at $100. Aside from retaining some small personal effects which he intended to deliver to her personally upon his return, he ends with a message to Eurich's sister Cassandra: "Assure her that I or any of the 'Yorkers' here in Mexico can render her any comfort of assistance that we will cheerfully do so. We all sympathize with her deeply in the loss of her only brother." Zeigler joined the Monroe Guards, a Philadelphia Regiment as a Sargeant, along with eight other York residents including Eurich. He eventually headed the Second Pennsylvania Regiment. Eurich seems to have been the only one of the group who died in combat, although three others died of sickness. A nicely poignant memoir of a slain soldier from the Mexican War.

        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.

      [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

      Virtue & Co., London 1848 - This magnificent dictionary is most collectable for its 44 engraved county maps. On its title-page the book also states its purpose to be 'a description of the counties, cities and market-towns of Great Britain and of the kingdoms, states, provinces and cities in the known world, with a variety of other useful information'. This substantial new edition was enlarged, improved and 'adapted to the present state of science' by B. B. Woodward. Our copy has been handsomely re-bound in modern half-calf with brown cloth sides - the book has five raised bands and title lettering in blind on the spine plus hand-sewn headbands. The text comprises 951 pages and in addition to the 44 county maps has numerous other illustrations, plans and portraits. The maps are in excellent condition apart from occasional light to moderate foxing; the text is clean with minimal foxing. Digital photos available upon request. This dictionary has often been broken up for its county maps but this is a particularly nice example of the text complete with maps in its original state and it has been enhanced by a careful and sensitive fresh binding. The book is heavy and extra postage may be needed. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
