        pl. 9 Clarkia Nulchella

      A wonderfully detailed hand-colored lithograph of a wild flower by Jane Webb Loudon (Mrs. Loudon) from her book "British Wildflowers" which was published in London in 1849 by William S. Orr &Co. This print is from the second edition and its overall dimensions are 8.5"x10.75". Jane Webb Loudon (1807-1857) was born in Birmingham, England into a well to do family, but was impoverished as a young woman after her father's financial decline and subsequent death. Loudon developed a simple formula for her botanical works, combining a brief text with charming illustrations, an arrangement that appealed to her audience. For each plant a brief botanical description was provided, including its common name in English, its order and genus. Some historical notes, and instructions regarding its cultivation' (An Oak Spring Flora p.326). Jane Loudon first began her series of popular botanical works in 1838 with the intention of alleviating the debt incurred by her husband, the renowned botanist, gardener, and horticultural writer John Loudon, whom she met after the publication of her best-selling novel The Mummy, Tales for the Twenty Second Century. Having had no prior training in botany, she first learned about horticulture after her marriage, when she assisted her husband with his Encyclopedia of Gardening (1834). Taking a less traditional and more generally accessible approach to the subject, Loudon published her first gardening book, Instructions in Gardening for Ladies, in 1838. She followed this up with a series of five linked titles that could also be viewed as separate works. The first work in the series was published in 1840 and was an immediate success, others followed in 1841, the present work in 1844 (second edition 1849) and the series was completed by two further works in 1846 and 1848.Overall this print is in very good condition with some foxing/staining and evidence of previous binding in right margin

      [Washington. 1849].. Seven folding maps. Dbd. Very minor wear and foxing. Very good plus. In a blue cloth slipcase and chemise. Second issue of the first map "to show the Oregon Trail accurately" (Rumsey). One of the greatest monuments to the cartography of the American West. This issue of the Preuss map appeared in the Rockwell report, which provided a comprehensive overview of the travel routes between the Atlantic and Pacific coasts, overland as well as isthmian sea passages. Charles Preuss, born George Karl Ludwig Preuss in Höhscheid, Prussia in 1803, served as the cartographer on Fremont's first and second expeditions and drew all of the maps which accompany Fremont's reports. Preuss also produced the present masterful map of the Oregon Trail. It is drawn to a very detailed scale, ten miles to an inch, and in addition to providing accurate cartographical information about the whole of the 1,670 mile route between the Missouri and the Columbia rivers, the sheets combine to give a real feeling of the daily progress of the expedition (in 1842 and 1843, between June 10 and October 26) by including indicators of where and when each overnight camp was set, where each noon-day halt was called, and the total distance from the starting point of Westport Landing. Longitudinal and latitudinal coordinates are also given, as are daily "Meteorological Observations" and "Remarks," including notes on the availability of game, water, grazing, and the friendliness (or otherwise) of local Indian tribes. "More than any other persons, John Charles Fremont and Charles Preuss dominate the cartography of the American West during the three years before the gold rush...Owing to its rarity and to its long having stood in the shadow of the more widely known and distributed Fremont-Preuss map of 1845, Preuss' sectional map of 1846 has been insufficiently appreciated by students of Western history. In particular, those interested either in Fremont's travels in 1842-43 or the revolution of the transcontinental wagon roads will find that the map rewards close study" - Wheat.

        The Seven Lamps of Architecture

      Smith, Elder, and Co., London 1849 - This unique edition with all the plates etched by Ruskin (Two bitten in Dijon during his honeymoon) is an extraordinary work of art. Ruskin says he will have all future authorized editions engraved by R.B. Cuff, but this edition with its mezzotint effects is special. (For the authorized Cuff edition, see item ID 98: Seven Lamps., New Edition. 1880.) This 1849 Ruskin work has had its spine rebound in leather; the embossed boards and edges are, apart from a little scuffing and some small spots, in good condition. There are two previous owner's names. Though there is slight browning on the edges of some of the pages, they do not affect the plates which are in fine condition.

        Reply to a Pamphlet Printed at Glasgow, with the Approbation of Clergyman or Different Denominations, Entitled 'Remarks on Mormonism'

      Liverpool: R. James, Printer, [1849]. 16pp. Octavo [22 cm] One large uncut sheet. This work has not been sewn. Fine. First word, line 5 from bottom, p.1: 'pleted'. We are able to locate four institutional copies. Rare. According to Crawley "Orson's 'Reply to a Pamphlet' is largely a point-by-point response and for the most part avoids an exchange or of optics Epithets even as it comments on Paton's lapses in logic or misreadings of 'Divine Authority.' When Paton, for example, declares that "it is one of the established laws of optics, that no mortal eye can, by any possibility, see a spirit," Orson constrains himself to calling Paton sarcastically a "sage philosopher" and asks, "Will this very wise author be so kind as to inform the public by whom this 'law of optics' was discovered, and by what process of reason and demonstration it became an established law?" 'Reply to a Pamphlet' has more than a page in defense of the belief that the Aaronic Priesthood is everlasting and its reestablishment on earth is predicted in the scriptures, and more than four pages in support of the Mormon interpretation of Isiah 29, Ezekial 37, and Revelation 14:6. For a refutation of the Spaulding-Rigdon theory, it refers the reader to Parley Pratt's 'Reply to C.S, Bush' and John Taylor's 'Answer to Rev. Robert Heys.'" Crawley 408. Flake/Draper 6537.

        A View of the Art of Colonization, With Present Reference to the British Empire

      London: John W. Parker, 1849. Octavo, uncut and partially unopened, recent boards with buckram backstrip. Uncut and partially unopened proof copy. Proof copy of Wakefield's major work elaborating the theory of systematic colonization. Both the title page, and drop-title of the text are inscribed 'Proofsheets Confidential' in a cursive hand.The book utilises the device of letters between a "statesman" and a "colonist". Wakefield proposes among other things the creation of a colony in New Zealand to be administered by the Church of England, thus disarming missionary opposition. In fact, the first emigrant ships left for the Canterbury settlement in 1850, and Wakefield himself left for New Zealand in 1853, eventually settling in Wellington. Bagnall notes that 'today, it is chiefly of interest as much for the autobiographical passages as for the oft-repeated theoretical concepts' (5818).From the collection of Dr. Robert Edwards, AO.

        Portrait of Sir Roderick Murchison with his Facsimile Signature]: Rod. I. Murchison.

      George Ransome, Ipswich 1849 - [Ipswich]: [George Ransome], [1849]. Lithograph on Indian paper ca. 33.5 x 24 cm (13.5 x 9.5 inches), with large margins, blind stamp of Ipswich Museum on the lower margin. T. H. Maguire 1849 [signed on stone lower right.]; M. & N. Hanhart, Lith. Printers. With some edge wear, otherwise a very good lithograph. Large lithographed portrait of noted geologist and geographer Sir Roderick Impey Murchison (1792-1871), shown with a hammer and eye-glass on a chord around his neck. "Murchison named and described the Silurian system and travelled extensively throughout Europe and Russia studying geological structures. He was one of the founders and a president of the Royal Geographical Society, director-general of the British Geological Survey and director of the Royal School of Mines and the Museum of Practical Geology" (Wikipedia). "Thomas Herbert Maguire was an English artist and engraver, noted for his portraits of prominent figures. The well-known series of 60 scientific portraits by Maguire was privately commissioned by George Ransome, F.L.S., of Ipswich, in connection with the foundation of the Ipswich Museum (Portraits of the Honorary Members of the Ipswich Museum. Portfolio of 60 lithographs by T.H. Maguire. George Ransome, Ipswich, 1846-1852). They were executed cumulatively between 1847 and 1852, as the Museum obtained fresh scientific sponsors. Some were made by the artist from life, and others from photographic portraits or (in the case of the Revd William Kirby) from an oil portrait. The exact total of this series is slightly above 60 because some (e.g. Edwin Lankester) were re-drawn. Copies of the lithographs were given to subscribing members of the Museum, and a bound portfolio copy of the series was presented by Professor J.S. Henslow to H.R.H. Prince Albert when he inspected the Museum on the occasion of the 1851 Ipswich Congress of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. George Ransome resigned his position as founding Secretary of the Museum in 1852 and the cumulative series was then discontinued" (Wikipedia).

        Lucretia Rudolph?s signed schoolbook, ?Xenophon?s Anabasis? in Greek, with notations in Greek and English by her and James ? both read and spoke Greek. James Garfield's signature on clipped paper laid in to book

      Chester/Hiram, Ohio, 1849- "The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below: Book ?Xenophon?s Anabasis? in Greek with notes in English by C. Anthon, 632 pages, 4.5? x 7.5?. New York: 1847. Signed on the first blank flyleaf ?Lucretia Rudolph.? Tears at left edge of flyleaf. Affixed opposite this page, inside the front cover, is a 2.75? x 1.5? label imprinted ?Inter Folia Fructus / Library of / James A. Garfield.? Bound in leather. Gilt lettering on label on spine. Bumped corners. Some pages foxed and soiled; one section of text block loose. Boards and spine professionally restored to good condition. Signature, ""J A Garfield MC"", on paper cut to 3.5"" X 1.25"", laid in to book. From ?In 1849, Garfield?s mother persuaded him to enter Geauga Academy in Chester, Ohio, which was about ten miles from his home. During his vacations he learned and practiced carpentry and helped at harvest, he taught and did anything and everything to get money to pay for his schooling. After his first term, he needed no aid from home, he had reached the point were he was self-sufficient. While at Chester, he met a Miss Lucretia Rudolph, his future wife. He was attracted at first by her interest in the same intellectual pursuits, and he quickly discovered sympathy in other tastes and a congeniality of disposition, which paved the way for the one great love of his life.? The ?Anabasis? is the account made by Xenophon of the retreat of the Greek troops that had tried to help Cyrus against Artaxerxes. Following an eight page biography of Xenophon in English, preceding the text in Greek, is a fold-out 11? x 7.5? ?Map to illustrate the Expedition of Cyrus, and the retreat of the Ten Thousand Greeks. Compiled from authentic Documents, By W. Francis Ainsworth? and a 7.5? x 4.5? ?Plan of the Battle of Cunaxa, according to M. de la Luzerne,? each with a tear at lower blank corner. There are notations in pencil in Greek and English in this book, by Lucretia and James. There was a class taught at Geauga in Xenophon?s Anabasis attended by Lucretia and James, although possibly not at the same time. This book was used by Lucretia and possibly by James. It was undoubtedly read by both. J.N. Bundy writes in ?The Nation?s Hero: In Memoriam. The Life of James Abram Garfield? by J.M. Bundy (New York: A.S. Barnes & Co., 1881) about Lucretia and James: ?The acquaintance begun at Chester, many years previous, when both were students at the Geauga Seminary, had ripened into congenial companionship in the studies and reading pursued together at Hiram, where he found her living near the Institute. She became Garfield?s pupil, some time afterward, and recited to him in Latin, Greek, and geometry, as well as in some other branches of study. She was a remarkably fine scholar, with keen perceptions, quick intuitions, and high ambitions. She sympathized with all of Garfield?s strenuous struggles for a college education. She was his complement and better self. Their union was inevitable, and they were engaged in 1854, just as Garfield was about to set out for Williams.? On November 11, 1858, James A. Garfield and Lucretia Rudolph were married."

        Manuscript medical daybook / ledger

Northumberland County, PA, 1849-62. 328 x 203 mm. Original reverse calf stamped in black, worn. A few leaves in front loose, light toning and spotting, but a very good example.</p><p>Medical ledger and daybook of Dr. Joseph Craven Robin, the first physician to locate and practice in Elysburg, Pennsylvania. "He first read medicine with his brother William at Sunbury, completing his professional preparation at the University of Pennsylvania, and in 1828 began practice at Sunbury. The following year he removed to Elysburg, at which point he was the first physician to locate permanently, and he was in active practice there for forty-two years, his field covering all the eastern part of Northumberland County and the adjoining portions of Montour, Columbia and Schuylkill counties. He was of the old &#39;saddle-bag&#39; doctors, and in spite of the hardships of a physician&#39;s life in his day survived all his fellow practitioners who were in practice at the time his career began, living to the advanced age of eighty-seven years. He retired from active professional labors about 1870" (Floyd&#39;s Northumberland County Genealogy).</p><p.Robins apparently shared his practice with another physician, Dr. S. C. Rotherwell (also spelled Roaderwell). His ledger records patient names, charges due and payments made, and the trades of several of his patients (e.g. mason, tinner, tanner, miller, blacksmith). Robins was apparently a lover of sentimental verse, as he pasted dozens of examples cut from newspapers and magazines into his ledger. One of the first few leaves has a large printed image of a hymnbook pasted to it (obscuring some earlier manuscript entries); the following pages have tipped-on cuttings illustrating a train wreck.

      West Brookfield: O.S. Cooke & Co., 1849. Octavo, a wonderful copy in original printed wrappers. Rare first edition of a radical American utopian tract.Greene (1818-1878) was a prominent American theorist and Unitarian minister, who published prolifically on the question of government and banking, as well as producing more esoteric works on the kabbala, transcendentalism and suffrage. His long-held beliefs regarding the importance of the individual and ownership of labour, led to his postulation of the urgent necessity for a community of equals providing non-competitive support for each other. This reinstatement of private property is an explicit rejection of Socialism, which he labels in this work &#39;the only political system which presents no good points.&#39;Instead, he calls for a profoundly American apotheosis of the republican ideal: &#39;Liberty, Equality, Fraternity: this is the mystical triangle which ought to be inscribed on the colors of every republic.&#39; Only the presence of all three of these ideals, each tempering and moderating the others, can allow for the creation of the ideal Constitutional Democratic Republic. The tract concludes with an axiomatic statement about Greene&#39;s political theory, and its foundational positioning of the explicit rejection of Socialism: &#39;An organisation of Society which renders a man dependent upon his neighbours, upon public opinion - which, in a word, renders him subservient to his accidents, instead of supreme over them - is destructive to individualism, and is, therefore, profoundly immoral.&#39;.

        Patent for for a Rotary Engine in 1849.

      - Israel Ginsman, of New York is granted an English patent for "Improvements in the construction of the rotary engine to be worked by Steam, Air, or other elastic fluid". Edinburgh 1849. A six page manuscript document on vellum 12 x 10", mostly in Latin. One fold, some soil from handling, as usual. The first attempts to produce a working and efficient rotary engine in the late 1830's produced a wave of creative activity, but no engines of enduring practicality. Even the modern Wankel engine is no longer used in automobiles. Still, by the late 1840's a number of prototypes were in operation with varying degrees of success, primarily for use in sawmills. Ginsman spent the enormous sum of L80, Scots to register his patent.

      West Point, N.Y. July 9, . 1849 - [1]p. autograph letter, signed, on a folded 7 1/4 x 9 1/2-inch sheet of paper. Plus original mailing envelope, completed in manuscript in Scott's hand. Letter with old vertical and horizontal folds. Slight wrinkling to letter and envelope. Very good. A very nice letter, uniting two important 19th-century American military leaders, Winfield Scott and Persifor F. Smith. It is also interesting in that Scott is introducing the great nephew of a former President - who was going to California at the height of the gold rush - and that the letter is directed to the sitting military governor of California. Scott is one of the most significant American military leaders of the 19th century, and he served on active duty as a general longer than anyone else in American history. He commanded forces in the War of 1812, the Black Hawk War, the Second Seminole War, the Mexican War, and briefly in the Civil War. Scott was the Whig Party nominee for President in 1852, losing to Franklin Pierce. Scott shared a long friendship with Persifor Frazer Smith (1798-1858), who was a distinguished military commander. Smith first served under Scott's command in the Second Seminole War, and again in the Mexican War, where he was brevetted a major general for his actions at Contreras and Churubusco. He later served as military governor of Mexico City, and was one of the last military governors of California, the position he held when he received the present letter from Winfield Scott. The note is a letter of introduction for James A. Monroe, a young New York lawyer and the great nephew of President James Monroe. Scott writes from West Point: "My dear General: This note will be handed to you, by my young friend, John A. Monroe Esq. a nephew of one of my ex-aides-de-camp & great nephew of one of our greatest presidents. Mr. Monroe has been at the New York Bar several years, & is a man of great integrity & character. I beg to place him under your kind protection as one in whom I take the liveliest interest. Very truly your friend Winfield Scott." The letter is accompanied by its original mailing envelope, addressed in manuscript by Scott "To Major General P.F. Smith, U.S. Army, Commanding California." An interesting letter, with significant military associations and gold rush interest.

      Wien, Wallishauser 1849.. Kl.-8°. 120 S. Mit 3 handcolor. Kupferstich-Illustrationen auf gef. Tafeln [nach Aquarellen von Johann Christian Schoeller]. Geschmackvoller, späterer HLnbd. m. goldgepr. Rü.titel und hübschem Buntpapierbezug (unter Beibindung der OHeftumschläge m. schwarzgedr. Titel u. Verlagsanzeigen). Rücken fleckig, Einbd. etw. angeschmutzt, Vorsätze gebräunt, hint. flieg. Vorsatz fehlt, Buchblock unbeschnitten, durchgeh. m. Spuren v. Wassereinwirkung und an der re. unt. Ecke mit Knickspur.. Borst 2356, Brieger 1836, Rabenlechner I, 60, WG²11. Erste Ausgabe. Krähwinkeliade mit Bezug auf die Revolutionswirren jener Zeit. Die am 1. Juli 1848 am Wr. Carl-Theater uraufgeführte Volkskomödie ist das einzige Stück, das Nestroy nicht unter dem Druck der Zensur geschrieben hat, da es in dem kurzen Zensurfreien Zeitraum (14. März-11. Nov. 1848) verfasst und aufgeführt wurde. Unter großem Jubel wurde das Werk bis zum Ende der Saison 36-mal gespielt. Das Stück verherrlicht die Ideen und Erfolge der Revolution und zeichnet gleichzeitig ein satirisches Bild der kleinsinnigen Nutznießer und engstirnigen Opfer der Revolution. "Am 31. Oktober besetzte die Armee des Fürsten Windischgrätz die Stadt und mit der Herrlichkeit der 'Freiheit in Krähwinkel' war es zu Ende, in den Straßen und auf der Bühne. Es war nur eine Posse gewesen. - Sie hat großen Wert als von Gedanken durchleuchtetes und über sich selbst hinaus deutendes Zeitdokument ... " (Franz H. Mautner, Nestroy, 1978, Ss.298-302). - Die Illustrationen in zeitgenössischem Kolorit zeigen drei Szenenbilder nach Aquarellen von Johann Christian Schoeller (1782-1851) mit Johann Nestroy als Eberhard Ultra.
