        MARDI: and a Voyage Thither

      New York:: Harper & Bros.,, 1849.. New York:: Harper & Bros.,. 1849. First American edition. Two volumes. Preceded by the rare three-volume English edition. His third book and the first pure fiction work (while they featured fictional narrators, his previous novels were heavily autobiographical). It details the travels of an American sailor who abandons his whaling vessel to explore the South Pacific. MARDI is highly philosophical, unlike his first two novels, and si said to be the first work to show Melville's true potential. While not as cohesive or lengthy as MOBY-DICK, it shares a similar writing style as well as many of the same themes. In his preface to MARDI, Melville wrote somewhat ironically that his first two books were nonfiction but disbelieved--following a similar pattern, he hoped the fiction herein would be accepted as fact (Wikipedia). Two volumes in embossed, dark-brown T-cloth with a blind-stamped rule about 1/8th inch from edges (priority unknown) [BAL 13658]. Yellow coated endpapers very nice and bright; very minor professional restoration at spine ends, otherwise a fine bright set with occasional minor foxing to volume 2. Housed in custom, cloth slipcase with gilt lettered spine.

A good copy with the crown and foot of the spine showing wear and wear to the bottom boards. Contemporary inscription on the front free endpage. Housed in a custom quarter morocco case.The California and Oregon Trail is the gripping account of Francis Parkman's journey west across North America in 1846. After crossing the Allegheny Mountains by coach and continuing by boat and wagon to Westport, Missouri, he set out with three companions on a horseback journey that would ultimately take him over two thousand miles. His detailed description of the journey, set against the vast majesty of the Great Plains, has emerged through the generations as a classic narrative of one man's exploration of the American Wilderness.

        Address to the Inhabitants of New Mexico and California, on the Omission by Congress to Provide Them with Territorial Governments, and on the Social and Political Evils of Slavery

      New York: The Am. & For. Anti-Slavery Society, 1849. New York: The Am. & For. Anti-Slavery Society. Near Fine. 1849. First Edition. A handsome First Edition in Near Fine condition. Disbound; A rare anti-slavery piece. The author argues that the reigning slave-holders in the United States Senate have deprived inhabitants of New Mexico and California of self-government. They have been "as totally excluded from all participation in the choice of rulers and the enactment of laws, as the Negro slaves of South Carolina." Why? Because "the Slave power has resolved that you shall have no government but such as shall establish the dominion of the WHIP. " The terrible influence of slavery on enterprise, education, settlement, commerce, religion, morals, and culture is demonstrated. Howes, who accorded this the 'b' rating for rarity, opined that Peter H. Burnett was the author. Eberstadt and Cowan concur. Burnett, a vigorous advocate of California statehood and abolitionist, helped to frame the state constitution and became its first governor in 1849. "This work is rarely met with." Eberstadt. Howes B999 b. 133 Eberstadt 165. Cowan 85 .

FIRST EDITION. SIGNED BY NOTED AMERICAN PHYSICIAN, RICHARD DENNIS ARNOLD, at the head of the title page. Arnold (1808-1876), a native of Savannah, was one of the leading medical men from Georgia. A charter member of the American Medical Association (1846), he served as its vice-president and secretary. He was a founder of the Medical Society of the State of Georgia (1849) and its president in 1851. He helped establish the Savannah Medical College and was a longtime member of the faculty. Arnold was also a politician, who served as the mayor of Savannah for several terms and as a member of both houses of the state legislature. As mayor, he surrendered Savannah to Sherman in December, 1864. In addition, he was one of the three founders of the Georgia Historical Society (1839). An interesting provenance for one of the landmark books in the history of modern medicine. "This American volume marks the first book-form publication of Simpson's essays and speeches, and thus represents his first full-dress exposition of the use of anaesthesia in childbirth and major surgery. The collection was never published in book form in England. . . " --Norman 1946.

Howes W414. Sabin 103994. Streeter 3324. HBS 64930.Third Edition and first generally obtainable edition, preceded by the extremely rare official quarto edition of 100 copies (of which sixty-three were given to foreign nations and twenty-five destroyed by fire), and the unofficial edition of the same size limited to 150 copies. The present edition is limited to 1,000 copies, which also includes the atlas which was omitted from later editions."Charles Wilkes joined the U.S. Navy in 1818; twenty years later he was appointed to command this first navel exploring expedition to the South Seas. The aims of the expedition were to survey unfamiliar ocean regions and make scientific discoveries. Assigned to this duty were the sloops of war Vincennes and Peacock, the brig Porpoise, the ship Relief, and the tenders Sea Gull and Flying Fish. Aboard these vessels were naturalists, botanists, artists, and others with specialized training in scientific exploration, in addition to officers and sailors. The chief fields of exploration in this expedition were the coast of the Antarctic continent, the islands of the Pacific Ocean, and the American northwest coast. In total, some 280 islands in the Pacific and adjacent waters and 800 miles of streams and coasts in the Oregon country were surveyed, and 1,600 miles of the coast of Antarctica were charted...Wilkes continued his navel career, after some controversy about his claim to have been the first to sight the continent of Antarctica and his severe punishment of some crewmen who had broken into the liquor stores. His disagreeable nature caused him to quarrel with many expedition members, casting a shadow over his leadership. Many years later he fought prominently on the Union side in the Civil War, and in 1861, in command of the San Jacinto, Wilkes initiated the famed Mason and Slidell affair by seizing those Confederate commissioners from a British mail steamer near the Bahamas." (Hill, 1866). Wilkes's Narrative "would also have an impact on some of America's most important and influential writers. James Fenimore Cooper, an old family friend of the Wilkes's, would integrate information from the Narrative into at least two of his sea novels. Herman Melville would purchase his own copy of Wilkes's book, and scholars have found traces of the U.S. Exploring Expedition throughout his masterpiece Moby-Dick. Melville appears to have been most taken with the book's illustrations. For example, his description of Ishmael's Polynesian companion Queequeg has been attributed to an engraving of a tattooed Maori chief in volume two. In an age before the widespread use of photography, the pages of the Narrative provided a visual link with the exotic world of the South Pacific (as well as Antarctica and the Pacific Northwest) that no other American book could match" (Nathaniel Philbrick, The Scientific Legacy of the U.S. Exploring Expedition, part of The United States Exploring Exhibition, 1830-1842, an online exhibition by Smithsonian Institution Libraries (Washington, D.C.: 2004)).

        Narrative of the Loss of the Mary Rose, at Spithead, July 20, 1545

      Portsea: Printed and Published by S. Horsey, Sen., 1849. From Original Manuscripts, &c. in the British Museum. Bound in Wood of the Wreck. Duodecimo (90 × 51 mm) Original black sheep-backed wooden boards, title gilt to the spine, all edges gilt, pale blue endpapers. Old paper label to the upper board "1545 Wreck of the Mary Rose, 10/-". Overall an excellent copy. First published 1842, title page states "Second Edition", but this in fact the third, a second having been published in 1844. Uncommon, OCLC locates just six copies of all editions, all of them in the UK, only one being of the present edition. There is, however, also a copy of the 1849 in the Royal Collection, which was exhibited as part of the Henry VIII quincentenary exhibition; "Henry VIII embarked upon a programme of ship building on his accession, including the Mary Rose which was built between 1509 and 1511. As the English flagship, she took part in many of the naval conflicts of Henry's reign. Her last engagement was in the Solent against a French invasion fleet in July 1545. With Henry watching from Southsea Castle on the mainland, the Mary Rose sank with the loss of around 500 men. The wreck of the Mary Rose lay undiscovered for nearly 300 years until its accidental discovery by fishermen in 1836, leading to diver John Deane recovering timbers and other relics over the next few years. A history of the ship's demise was published by Samuel Horsey; copies of his book were bound using samples of wood recovered during Deane's expeditions" (exhibition catalogue). This copy is exceptionally well preserved.

The ever-versatile Owen, who introduced the legislation creating the Smithsonian, was also chairman of the Building Committee, and his book has for its goal the enlightenment of the general public as well as "to enlighten the judgment and form the taste of those who are appointed to sit in judgment on the result of his [the architect's] labors." As such, it is one of the most important American books of its time, and shows the influence of Pugin and Ruskin. It also features striking architectural plates, including superb views of Grace Church in New York as well as various views of the Smithsonian buildings

        Shissoku kyuri kaizo zufu [trans.: An Illustrated Record of the Dissection of 1821]

      Numerous colored woodcut illus. in the text. 5, 35 folded leaves. 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. Edo: 1849. Second edition, enlarged and corrected, of this atlas of anatomical dissection, based on the dissection of a 23 year-old male body performed at the west execution ground in Kyoto in 1821. The "existence of the lymphatic system seems to have aroused special interest among Japanese physicians."-Ogawa, "The Beginnings of Anatomy in Japan" (1975), p. 68. In the present work, the thoracic duct was first fully observed and described. The surgeon responsible for making this observation was Gishin Komori, the 19 year-old son of Tou Komori, the superintendent in charge of this dissection. Dissections in Japan took place under less than ideal situations, at execution grounds and within one day. Teams were assembled to study individual parts of the body with each team preparing a report of their observations. This present work is particularly well-illustrated with numerous colored and highly detailed woodcuts of organs and systems of the body. Ikeda (1785-1836), was an early user of the microscope in Japan which he employed in preparing this book. The first edition, published in 1822 or 1823, is a well-known rarity amongst specialists. Fine copy. First six folded leaves with some inoffensive staining. A few leaves at beginning with minor marginal worming. ❧ Mestler, A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books With Miscellaneous Notes on Early Medicine in Japan. Part I, p. 310 & III, pp. 127 & 129. .

      London: Printed for the Hakluyt Society, 1849.. viii, xxxvi, 203 pp. 8vo. Cloth. First edition. Illus. with 5 plates, 1 facsimile, and 1 folding map. Hakluyt Society, First series: No. 6. Sabin 92664. Field 1514. Pilling 3764. Howes S1053. From British Library, Sloane MS 1622. "The author, of whom almost nothing is certainly known, was evidently a person of some importance in Virginia during the period of which he writes, --- from 1610 to 1612. Book I., pp. 23 to 133, is almost wholly occupied with a description of the Indians of Virginia, their customs and peculiarities. It was written probably some years before Captain John Smith?s General History of Virginia, and is more especially remarkable as having afforded Mr. Deane and Mr. Niel the data to charge the name of Pocahontas with infamy. The following passage will scarcely be considered sufficient evidence to convict the Indian maiden: ?Their younger women goe not shadowed amongst their owne companie, until they be nigh eleaven, or tuelve returnes of the leafe old, nor are they very much ashamed thereof, and therefore would the before remembered Pochahontas, a well featured, but wanton yong girle, Powhatuns daughter, sometymes resorting to our port, of the age then of eleven or twelve yeares, get the boys forth with her into the markett place, and make them wheele falling on their hands turning up their heeles upwards, whome she would followe and wheele so her self, naked as she was, all the fort over, but being once twelve yeares, they put on a kind of seme-cinctum lethern apron before their bellies, and are very shamefact to be scene bare.? On the modern interpretation of the word wanton, rests almost all the weight of the arguments against Pochahontas? chastity. A word used two centuries ago, like ?wench, ? ?quean, ? and many other terms, since degraded by use to reproach, is here in the sense of saucy, hoydenish, reckless, and other kindred terms indicating boldness and want of propriety. Like other native girls she was incapable of viewing her nudity with shame, because her youth forbid the association of sexual indulgence, or even desire, with it, " (Field, Indian Bibliography, p. 383). Spine a bit sunned, wear to head of spine, small institutional bookplate to front pastedown; endpapers at hinges ragged and re-glued, else a very good unopened (uncut) copy. Map about fine.

"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 'saddle-bag' doctors, and in spite of the hardships of a physician'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's Northumberland County Genealogy).

        Shirley. A Tale. By Currer Bell, Author of 'Jane Eyre'. IN CONTEMPORARY BINDING

      Smith, Elder & Co., 18493 vols., 8vo., First Edition, uniform mid-nineteenth inscription above title on all three title-pages, fore-margins mildly age-soiled (rather more heavily so on first leaves of first volume; see below); attractively bound in contemporary half calf, marbled boards, back ruled with six flat bands, second compartments lettered in gilt, fourth compartments numbered in gilt, backstrip gilt faded (but all lettering and numbering wholly legible), neatly recased with new endpapers, sprinkled edges, a very good, tight copy. The work was issued without half-titles. This is likely to be an early issue since it is bound without the 16pp publisher's catalogue dated October 1849 sometimes found at end of first volume. With the first of two leaves of publisher's advertisements at end of third volume. The mid-nineteenth century presentation inscription above titles is blotted and obtrusive but nowhere affects printed lettering. This copy has the following minor imperfections: Vol. I: mild marginal age-soiling to title and following eight leaves, short closed tear on title neatly repaired on verso; Vol. III: wanting second leaf of publisher's advertisements at end. The first leaf (here present) contains the announcement of the third edition of Jane Eyre, the second leaf (here absent) contains press opinions of the same work. Overall a nice copy of the author's second novel (set during the Luddite riots) in partially restored period binding. SCARCE. Sadleir 348; Smith, p.112; Parrish, p. 93; Wise 6 (pp.22-29)
