        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 JamesGarfield.org: ?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. <p>Robin, Joseph Craven (1806-93). Manuscript medical daybook / ledger. Approx. 260pp., 19 or 20 pages pasted with clippings (primarily poetry). 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.

        Equality

      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.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER, SIGNED, FROM GEN. WINFIELD SCOTT TO GEN. PERSIFOR F. SMITH, INTRODUCING JOHN A. MONROE].

      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.

Mieling after the author (some plates in vol. II partly waterstained). CX,240; (2),264 pp.* First edition; reviewer's copy of the 'Algemeen Letterlievend Maandschrift, 1850, with some manuscript notes. - Interesting account based on information and reports collected by De Stuers (1788-1861) when he was military commandant and resident of Padang between 1824 and 1829. He left the colony after a conflict with the governor-general about the expansion of authority in Sumatra. 'Veth published the book because it clarified a little-known episode in colonial history. In Veth's view, it underscored the need for the Netherlands to concern itself more actively with the administration of the Outer Islands. In an annotated introduction running to over a hundred pages Veth reviewed the history of Dutch military action on Sumatra' (Van der Velde, P.J. Veth, p. 119).

A sound and solid copy of this scarce early work drawn from his travels throughout Middle East and Europe. Text block edges are red. One copy noted in Library of Congress. This established his reputation as a poet..TAYLOR, Bayard, author, born in Kennett Square, Chester County, Pennsylvania, 11 January. 1825; died in Berlin, Germany, 19 December, 1878. He was the son of Joseph and Rebecca (Way) Taylor, and was of Quaker and South German descent. His first American ancestor, Robert Taylor, was a rich Quaker, who came over with Penn in 1681, and whose eldest son inherited land that now includes "Cedar-croft, " the poet&#39;s recent estate. His grandfather married a Lutheran of pure German blood, and was excommunicated by the Quakers. The poet&#39;s mother, although a Lutheran, was attached to the Quaker doctrines, and the Quaker speech and manners prevailed in her household. Bayard was named after James A. Bayard, of Delaware, and his first book bore on its title-page, through a mistake of Griswold, its editor, the name of "James Bayard Taylor. " After reaching his majority he always signed his name Bayard Taylor. His boyhood was passed near Kennett on a farm. He learned to read at four, began to write early, and from his twelfth year wrote "poems, novels, historical essays, but chiefly poem so" At the age of fourteen he studied Latin and French, and Spanish not long afterward. In 1837 the family removed to West Chester. There, and at Unionville, the youth had five years of high-school training. His first printed poem was contributed in 1841 to the "Saturday Evening Post, " Philadelphia. In 1842 he was apprenticed to a printer of West Chester. His contributions to the "Post" led to a friendship with Rufus W. Griswold, who was then connected with that paper and was also editor of " Graham&#39;s Magazine. " Griswold advised him concerning the publication of "Ximena, and other Poems" (Philadelphia, 1844) , which was dedicated to his adviser and sold by subscription. By this time he found a trade distasteful, and, to gratify his desire for travel and study in Europe, he bought his time of his employer. The "Post" and the " United States Gazette" each agreed to pay him fifty dollars in advance for twelve foreign letters. Graham bought some of his poems, and with one hundred and forty dollars thus collected he sailed for Liverpool, 1 July, 1844. Horace Greeley gave him a conditional order for letters to the "&#39; Tribune, " of which he afterward wrote eighteen from Germany. His experiences abroad are well&#39; condensed in his own language: "After landing in Liverpool, I spent three weeks in a walk through Scotland and the north of England, and then travelled through Belgium and up the Rhine to Heidelberg, where I arrived in September, 1844. The winter of 1844-&#39;5 1 spent in Frankfort-on-the-Main, and by May I was so good a German that I was often not suspected of being a foreigner. I started off again on foot, a knapsack on my back, and visited the Brocken, Leipsic, Dresden, Prague, Vienna, Salzburg, and Munich, returning to Frankfort in July. A further walk over the Alps and through northern Italy took me to Florence, where I spent four months learning Italian. Thence I wandered, still on foot, to Rome and Civita Vecchia, where I bought a ticket as deck-passenger to Marseilles, and then tramped on to Paris through the cold winter rains. I arrived there in February, 1846, and returned to America after a stay of three months in Paris and London. I had been abroad for two years, and had supported myself entirely during the whole time by my literary correspondence. The remuneration which I received was in all five hundred dollars, and only by continual economy and occasional self-denial was I able to carry out my plan. " His letters were widely read, and shortly after his return were collected in "Views Afoot, or Europe seen with Knapsack and Staff" (New York, 1846). Six editions were sold within the year. In December, 1846, Taylor bought, with a friend as partner, a printing-office in his native county, and began to publish the Phoenixville "Pioneer. " But after a year he sold his newspaper and obtained a place on the New York "Tribune " in the literary department and as man-of-all-work. In December, 1848 (publ date 1849) , he published "Rhymes of Travel, Ballads, and Poems, " which gave him repute as a poet. ; 0 .

This copy contains the very rare final signature of leaves issued only with some copies, which comprise a three-page "Address to the People of California" (pages 17-19). The Eberstadts describe these last three pages as lacking from most copies, and it appears that many copies of the constitution were distributed before the "Address" had been printed. Section 18 of Article I (the "Declaration of Rights") bans slavery. "The text was a model of advanced, liberal, and democratic social and political thought" (Howell).

        Ohio Reformers Use Rhode Island's Dorr Rebellion to Justify Their Own Behavior

      [Columbus, Ohio] 1849 - Pamphlet. The Dorr Movement in Ohio; Being an Examination into the Causes, Progress and Probable Effects of the Revolutionary Course of Locofocoism in the Organization of the General Assembly of This State, for the Session of 1848-49. [Columbus, Ohio]: Legg & Murray, Columbus, [1849]. Disbound. Inscribed in pencil on the title by H.A. Swift, the author, in presentation. Historical Background The Locofocos were a faction that split from the New York Democratic party in 1835 after local disagreements with machine politicians and Tammany Hall's support of Andrew Jackson's stance on the national bank. They opposed state banks, monopolies, exclusive privilege, and other antidemocratic measures. They also advocated suspending paper money and legal protection of labor unions. In New York, the machine politicians ultimately prevailed by co-opting their principal issues and nominating fusion candidates and reabsorbing the dissidents by 1838.The anti-bank, anti-corporation, and increased democracy movement gained steam in neighboring Ohio throughout the 1840s, with many looking to the Dorr movement in Rhode Island as a template for their own acts.In 1841 Rhode Island's Thomas W. Dorr had led the effort to change Rhode Island's political system and expand voting rights. After trying to change the system internally, he created the People's Party, held an extralegal constitutional convention, and set up a competing government. The Rhode Island General Assembly drafted a rival constitution, and in 1842, both groups voted on their respective Constitutions. Both Dorr and sitting Governor Samuel Ward King were elected governor, but King refused to accept the People's Constitution, declared martial law, and accused Dorr of treason. While he did not attempt to seize the State House or governmental institutions, a few armed clashes did occur. Dorr fled the state, but returned and was convicted in 1843 but released for health reasons two years later. Ultimately, Rhode Island greatly liberalized voting rights in the aftermath of the rebellion.NAIP 358662. The American Antiquarian Society lists another edition, with slightly different imprint, with 1848 date.

Hail New York, Emperor of American cities: "Cities, as well as empires, after a successful rise and a period of glory, are destroyed by some convulsion, or gradually sink to decay. We have therefore confined our estimates to a period within which New-York seems as free from such dangers as human foresight can conceive. If her foreign commerce should be crippled or destroyed by war, her internal trade and other resources would be means of preservation and prosperity. If the ravages of ravages of pestilence or fire should desolute her borders, new population and capital would at once cover the breach. If civil commotions should rend the great American confederacy into separate republics, she is too power to fear dissolution in the conflict, and would still be the great metropolis of the continent. And she is too near the infancy of her growth, to experience, within the period of our estimates, the decline common to all cities and nations. Whatever may be her lot in future ages, New-York is doubtless destined to become the commercial emporium of the world." pp. 125. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Bound in blue-green T cloth, elaborately blind-stamped, with gilt title to spine. Corners faintly rubbed, tiny hole to head of spine and slight dampstain to lower front cover on Volume I, occasional foxing throughout, as usual.
