        MINERS WEIGHING THEIR GOLD [upper caption title] THE DREAM OF A PROSPECTING MINER [lower caption title]

      San Francisco: Lith. & published by Quirot & Co., 1850. Some edge wear, including small tears, as well as light wrinkling. A few old ink smudges on the conjugate leaf. Very good. An evocative and relatively scarce California pictorial letter sheet, giving two views of life in the gold diggings. The upper illustration shows three miners seated around a table made of wooden planks supported by tree branches. The miner in the center is weighing gold on a scale over a pan. The miners who flank him are both armed, one with a knife and the other with a pistol. Another pistol, as well as a rifle, lays on the table. The table also holds bottles, plates, a pair of horseshoes, and a large loaf of bread, which from its well-developed crumb structure appears to be a loaf of sourdough. The lower illustration shows the same miner who was weighing his gold laid out asleep under a tree near a fire. Beside him are guns, a powder horn, a knife, and a satchel, and a large bag (filled with gold?) rests under his right elbow. The three dream bubbles above him show scenes of a miner prospecting, and a ship being loaded with heavy bags. A nice California pictorial letter sheet, showing the reality and the dreams of life in the mines. BAIRD, CALIFORNIA'S PICTORIAL LETTER SHEETS 170. CLIFFORD LETTER SHEET COLLECTION 190. PETERS, CALIFORNIA ON STONE, p.76 & plate 33 (the Britton & Rey version).

        Orations and speeches [1845-1850] (2 volume set)

      Boston,: Ticknor, Reed, and Fields, 1850-01-01. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. 2 volume set. 410 pp. + vii, 482 pp. 19 cm. Clipped autograph signature of Charles Sumner (USS) opposite title page. Bound in publisher's blind stamped brown cloth. Gold lettering. Hardcover. Some wear to cover, spine head/tail frayed. Chip missing from top corner of Vol. I spine. Clean, unmarked pages. Charles Sumner was the noted Massachusetts abolitionist Senator. This work collects Sumner's most important speeches against slavery, the Mexican-American War, and for "free soil" made before joining the US Senate. In a horrific episode in 1856, while giving a speech denouncing slavery in Kansas, Sumner was savagely beaten by Sen. Preston Brooks of South Carolina. Sabin 93668. A short quote from this work: "Slavery is wrong... As it is our perpetual duty to oppose wrong, so must we oppose Slavery; nor can we ever relax in this opposition so long as the giant evil continues any where." Vol. 2, p. 410. Interesting provenance: Early signature of Albert G. Browne, 1850 (Massachusetts). (Also owned by his son Albert G. Browne Jr.) Albert Gallatin Browne served the US treasury during the Civil War in South Carolina, Georgia, and Florida. Browne was tasked with seizing Confederate arms and supplies and then subsequently overseeing trade and commerce for occupied Southern territories. His son, Albert G. Browne, Jr. subsequently owned this book. Browne Jr. served as a war correspondent for Horace Greeley's New York Tribune (Mormon - Utah War / Civil War). Both Brownes were noted abolitionists and admirers of Sumner. (Browne Jr. was forced to flee Boston in 1854 after freeing an escaped black slave, Anthony Burns.) For more information on Browne, please see Harvard Magazine's article, William MacKinnon, "Albert Gallatin Browne Jr. Brief life of an early war correspondent: 1832-1891." November-December 2008. Later, lovely Maine, Kin O'Ktaadn bookplate of Walter Francis Kimball. This work includes related genealogical ephemera about the Brownes. (Browne's papers are at Harvard.)

        A Monograph of the Odontophorinae, or Partridges of America

      London: Richard & John E. Taylor for the Author, 1850. Folio. (21 1/2 x 14 1/4 inches). 1p. list of subscribers. 32 fine hand-coloured lithographed plates after Gould and H. C. Richter. Early half olive green morocco over green pebbled cloth covered boards, bound for Sotheran's, spine with raised bands in six compartments, lettered in the second and fourth, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt, marbled endpapers, gilt edges A fine copy of the first edition of Gould's fourth monograph, in which he considerably enlarged the number of recorded species of the American partridge family.Besides the spectacular plates of American birds, this work is interesting for the light it throws on the all encompassing nature of science before specialization: Gould was inspired by the gift of an English Arctic explorer, received much useful information from a Scottish botanist and finally dedicated the work to the French ornithologist Prince Charles Lucien Bonaparte (1803-1857) the author of American Ornithology . In this, Gould's fourth monograph, he considerably enlarged the number of recorded species of the American partridge family. Gould was persuaded to undertake this project "by the sight of the beautiful Callipepla Californica, presented to the Zoological Society of London by Captain Beechey, in 1830. The graceful actions and elegant deportment of these birds inspired me with a desire to become thoroughly acquainted with the entire group of which they form a part; this desire was even strengthened by the details furnished to me by the late celebrated traveller and botanist, Mr. David Douglas, respecting species seen by him in California, of the existence of which we had until then no idea ... In the course of my researches I have several times visited most of the public and many of the private collections of Europe, and have besides corresponded with various persons in America: the result is that I have had the pleasure of extending our knowledge of the group from eleven to no less than thirty-five species" (Preface). Anker 176; Fine Bird Books (1990) p.102; Nissen IVB 376; Sauer 13; Wood p.365; Zimmer p. 257.

      1850. American carved and gilded wood frame. Fine condition. An action-filled image of Indian life near an American Army fort (inscribed "Fort Pierre" lower right) along the Missouri River, this fine oil painting of a large party of heavily armed and war-painted braves riding out of their camp past their squaws and dogs, is similar to the style of the important frontier painter, Carl Wimar, but also shows the stylistic influences of other notable artists of the American West such as Seth Eastman, Anton Schonborn, and Alfred Jacob Miller. The German-born Wimar based himself in St. Louis, which he used as a springboard for sketching trips through present-day Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana. "He translated these [sketches] into paintings that authentically and powerfully depict Indian life....His dramatic portrayals of the conflict between native Americans and pioneers helped to establish many of the myths of the American West that prevail to this day" - Ron Tyler. A handsome painting showing the upper Missouri in the fur trade era. Rick Stewart, CARL WIMAR: CHRONICLER OF THE MISSOURI RIVER FRONTIER (Amon Carter Museum, 1991), passim.

        San'iku zensho [trans.: Complete Book on Obstetrics].

      Numerous illus. in the text. 12 volumes (complete). 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on each upper cover, new stitching. Tokyo & other places: 1850. First edition and a complete set of this finely illustrated book; the most comprehensive work on obstetrics published in Japan before the arrival of Admiral Perry and Western influences. "In 1850 Sansetsu or Gihaku Mizuhara (1782-1864), whose real given name was Yoshihiro, published his definitive work on obstetrics entitled San'iku zensho (sometimes referred to as Jyunsei-an san'iku zensho) in 11 volumes [actually 12 volumes], divided into three sections plus an appendix volume. The first section [Gaihen; trans.: External Care], comprising the first seven volumes, was on general obstetrics with text and illustrations describing placentation, monsters, the use of massage in obstetrics, obstetrical examination per vagina and per rectum, (primitive) positions for delivery, preparation of the patient for delivery, and post-partum care of the mother. There is an interesting illustration showing the Japanese equivalent of the 'birth-stools' (obstetrical chairs) in common use in medieval Europe... "The second section [Naihen: tangen zuketsu; trans.: Internal Care: Illustrated Usages of Obstetrical Forceps], comprising volumes 8 to 10, was an amplification of Mizuhara's earlier atlas, the Sanka zushiki (1837), and described additional obstetrical instruments with illustrations showing them in use. Of special interest was an ingenious mechanical contrivance for the forceful extraction of the fetus if it got 'stuck,' and an illustration of that device which replaced, so to speak, the physician who prior to the development of that infernal machine had often found it necessary to lay on the floor and pull with all his might in the opposite direction whilst pushing with his bare feet planted squarely against the buttocks of the patient with her thighs abducted and externally rotated and her knees in flexion. A series of illustrations in this section of San'iku zensho showed the progressive events or stages in the birth of a baby presenting the feet first, one of these drawings being the original of that chosen by Dr. Ruhräh to illustrate his translation of Fujikawa's history of medicine in Japan. The management of the placenta was shown... "Volume 11 [Shikenho; trans.: Prescriptions used in Practice] forms all of the third section and treated entirely of prescriptions, in particular those found useful in obstetrical practice... "The fourth part [Vol. 12] was in the form of an appendix [Betsu fouroku inki zuhen; trans.: Addenda of Illustrations], with illustrations of female sex anatomy, innervation of the pelvic region, structure, and blood supply of the placenta, and the visceral connections of the umbilical cord in the newborn. San'iku zensho was one of the last Japanese obstetrical writings produced in the period following the 'reforms' instituted by Genetsu and Genteki Kagawa, and is probably the most representative treatise -- certainly it was the most comprehensive -- on the state of obstetrics in Japan prior to the reopening of that country to Western influences."-Mestler, A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books, II, pp. 498-99. Occasional minor worming, touching text and illustrations from time to time but a fine and fresh set. .

        Album d'articles de voyages d'après les modèles de Messieurs Godillot Père et Fils, Brévetés malletiers du Roi. Dessiné et lithographié par Godillot fils aîné

      Rue St. Denis: Godillot Père et Fils, Rue St. Denis, 1850. Some wear to the margins, wrappers chipped, yet in very good condition, now housed in a finely crafted folding case.. Oblong portfolio of nine lithographed sheets (six vibrantly coloured by hand) preserved in the original delicate lithographed wrappers; each sheet measures 300 x 455 mm. A beautiful, rare and precious catalogue of the articles a traveller may desire for voyaging elegantly and safely. The album features superb full page hand-coloured lithographs showcasing nearly one hundred accessories including bags, picnic baskets, apparel, wonderful old trunks, tents and hammocks, many of which are in surprisingly bold and modern designs. Alexis Godillot (1816-1893) was a contemporary of Louis Vuitton (1821-1892) and first achieved renown in Paris for his beautiful hand-made luggage. This catalogue comes from this very early period of his life before he had differentiated the left foot from the right and become the famous shoemaker who would go on to equip over one hundred thousand French soldiers for the Crimean War. Significantly, the catalogue includes an original detailed graphite sketch by Godillot that was lithographed for the album. It is an opulent hammock with an elegant canopy and drapes.

        Consequences of a Successfull French Invasion.

      J. Gillray, nd., c., London 1850 - Engraving, 370 x 270 mm., handcoloured as issued; framed. A famous, satirical look at the decision of the English parliament to create a penal settlement at Botany Bay, in contrast to the atmosphere of reform and concern with civil liberties in the newly created republic of France and in the American colonies. This cartoon was first published in 1798; it was reissued in the mid nineteenth century as offered here.James Gillray turns the tables on the politicians of the House of Commons responsible for the Botany Bay decision: French revolutionaries led by Napoleon storm the parliament gagging the Speaker and placing all the Members in chains and dressing them in the garb of convicts. All the symbols of House are destroyed: the mace is smashed, the statutes discarded on the floor, and below the Speaker's chair are the words, "The House is adjourned to Botany Bay".This is the significantly later impression of the print, first issued at the close of the eighteenth century, circa 1798.

        Théâtre Akademique der rühmlichst bekannten Geschwister Bäse, verbunden mit der weltberühmten Somnambüle, Nachfolgerin der Madame Lenormand, welche auf ihrer Durchreise, während ihres Hierseins einige Vorstellungen geben wird. (...) Die berühmte Somnambüle, Nachfolgerin der Mad. Lenormand, welche durch magnetischen Schlaf die Kunst besitzt, das Glück des Menschen von der Wiege bis zum Grabe auf das Deutlichste zu prophezeihen. (Unterzeichner:) Henry Bäse aus Braunschweig.

      (Dresden), Blochmann und Sohn, ca. 1850.. Plakat mit typograph. Text und 5 Holzschnitten. Blattgr.: 58 x 42 cm. Sehr berühmt oder erfolgreich mögen die Geschwister Bäse nicht gewesen sein, zumindest konnte ich keine weiteren Auftritte nachweisen. Als Nachfolgerinnen der berühmten französischen Wahrsagerin Marie Anne Lenormand (gest. 1843) bezeichneten sich zahlreiche Gauklerinnen auf europäischen Jahrmärkten. - Neben diesem Auftritt gab es u. a. noch: Ikarische Sylphiden-Gespiele der vier Brüder Bäse, Japanische Spiele und "La Trapez volonta" mit Rudolph Düsterhoff und "Dispensations adriennes" mit Frl. Linna Bäse. - Die hübschen Holzschnitte zeigen u. a. die Wahrsagerin mit verbunden Augen und einen feinen Herrn, dem wohl gerade die Zukunft vorhergesagt wird. Linke Ecken mit etwas Abschnitt, der obere linke Rand auf ca. 7 cm etwas beschnitten.

        Exposition d'une nouvelle méthode de galvanisation dite galvanisation localisée - Exposition d'une nouvelle méthode d'électrisation, dite galvanisation localisée. Deuxième partie - Application de la galvanisation localisée à l'étude des fonctions musculai

      1850 - 3 ouvrages en 1 volume in-8 Paris, Rignous et Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière, 1850-1851, , 3 ouvrages en 1 volume in-8 de 51, (1) pages, puis 45, (3) pages et 16 pages, pleine papier bradel moderne, Très rare mise en recueil du premier texte, extrait en tiré à part des Archives générales de Médecine, de Duchenne de Boulogne sur sa méthode dite d'électrisation localisée, travail fondateur d'électrothérapie ; il s'agit, en outre, de la première utilisation de la stimulation électrique des nerfs et muscles à des fins d'exploration du système musculaire ainsi que de diagnostic et de traitement dans le cas de maladies neurologiques. Exceptionnel exemplaire portant un envoi signé de l'auteur, sur la première de couverture originale conservée, "A Monsieur le D. Longet, membre de l'Académie de Médecine". François Achille Longet fut un pionnier dans l'étude de la physiologie expérimentale, professeur et médecin très influent, détenteur de la chair de physiologie de la Faculté de Médecine de Paris. "Dés 1848, Duchenne présenta à l'Académie des Sciences de nouveaux mémoires précisant l'intérêt physiologique pathologique et thérapeutique de l'électrisation localisée. C'est seulement, en 1850 et en 1851, qu'il s'adressa directement au public médical en publiant dans les Archives Générales de Médecine, de longs articles sur les principes et les applications de sa découverte. Le mémoire de 1850 nous fournit de précieux renseignements sur la nouvelle méthode d'électrisation. Il a pour titre : "Exposition d'une nouvelle méthode de galvanisation, dite galvanisation localisée" [.] L'intérêt du mémoire de 1850 est d'y trouver déjà l'ébauche de toute l’œuvre de Duchenne" (Guilly, Duchenne de Boulogne, Paris, Baillière et fils, 1936, pages 47-49) Dans la seconde édition de 1862 de l’Électrisation localisée, Duchenne dans la liste des "Travaux de l'auteur" indiquera comme tout premier article : "De l'art de limiter l'excitation électrique dans les organes sans piquer ni inciser la peau, nouvelle méthode d'électrisation, appelée électrisation localisée, et dont les principes, résumés dans une note adressée en 1847 à l'Académie des Sciences, ont été développés et publiés dans les Archives Générales de médecine, en juillet et en août 1850, février et mars 1851" (page VII). A la suite , relié, le compte-rendu de Bérard sur ces premières expériences de Duchenne : Application de la galvanisation localisée à l'étude des fonctions musculaire, Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière, 1851 ; ainsi qu'un très court résumé, en tiré à part, d'un mémoire présenté à l'Académie de Médecine le 11 février 1851 et extrait des Archives générales de Médecine de mars 1851 : "Recherche électro-physiologiques et pathologiques sur les muscles de la main, sur les extenseurs communs des doigts, et sur les extenseurs propres de l'index et du petit doigt". On joint, avec un second envoi autographe de Duchenne de Boulogne à Achille Longet, le tiré à part de la "Recherche électro-physiologiques et pathologiques sur les muscles de la main, sur les extenseurs communs des doigts, et sur les extenseurs propres de l'index et du petit doigt", ce travail pionnier de Duchenne sur les muscles de la main, dont on connait mieux les futurs résultats sur la dystrophie musculaire d'Aran-Duchenne. Ex-libris imprimé du Docteur Henri Liouville et estampille, annulée, de l'Institut catholique de Paris.

        Lake Como [and:] Lake Maggiore

      Italy, 1850. Pair of views, gouache over faint etched line, black gouache border. Period gilt and faux bois frames. Two splendid, panoramic views of Lake Como and Lake Maggiore Catering to the foreigners flocking to the region on The Grand Tour, this pair of hand-painted prints beautifully depict the famed, picturesque lakes, with rich bands of blue highlighting the water and sky, with the surrounding hills and mountains dotted with luxurious villas. In the view of Lake Maggiore, we see from a very high vantage point the Borromean Islands: Isola Bella, Isola Madre and Isola dei Pescatori,with their extraordinary gardens. The view of Lake Como looks north up the lake towards Switzerland from above Bellagio, which occupies the point at which the lake divides in two. The paintings are clearly intended as a pair, the images being almost identical in size with matching black painted margins. The prints are as issued with black labels covering the original printed titles.

Alexandre Bida's contribution consists of twelve beautifully-observed character studies of the people he encountered in the region: an Albanian, a Copt, dancers, ladies, a donkey driver, a groom, etc. Bida, studied under Eugene Delacroix, and travelled extensively through Egypt, Greece, Turkey, Lebanon and Palestine. "E. Barbot" is Prosper Barbot (1798-1878), a pupil of Jules Coignet and Louis Watelet, who made two journeys to Egypt in 1844 and 1846 travelling from Cairo south across the desert.

Well-known gardens include those of the Isola Madre, Isola Bella and the Isole di Brissago, that of the Villa Taranto in Verbania, and the Alpinia botanical garden above Stresa ... Isola Bella is one of the Borromean Islands of Lago Maggiore in north Italy. The island is situated in the Borromean Gulf 400 meters from the lakeside town of Stresa. Isola Bella is 320 meters long by 400 meters wide and is entirely occupied by the Palazzo Borromeo and its Italianate garden [completed in 1671]." (wikipedia). Bellagio is located at the point at which the Lakes Como and Lecco divide. From Lake Como, one sees the beautiful Romanesque Bell Tower handsomely portrayed here by Bartezzati.
