        [Manuscript and Printed Scores]: Varieties - Piano: A collection of Waltzes and Opera arrangements for Piano, circa 1860

      Ant. Diabelli & Comp. (Wein: Ant. Diabelli & Comp.). [circa 1850-1860]. First. One bound volume containing 52 manuscript leaves of music on the versos and rectos of each sheet, along with 116 printed pages of music. Oblong quarto. Measures 13.5" x 10.25". Text in German.

Scuffing to the joints and leather corners, scattered foxing, a few early wove-paper repairs, about very good. A unique, custom bound collection of popular waltzes and opera arrangements for piano, most likely assembled by a Viennese-based musician in the 1850s. The manuscript scores include one (March and Choir from Wagner's Tannhauser) signed and dated at the end: "Clementine Steiner, Marz 1853"; and two arrangements (Duet; Waltz and Choir) from Charles Gounod's Faust, which premiered in March 1859. Most of the printed scores were published by the famous Viennese music publisher and composer Anton Diabelli in the Euterpe series from the 1840s and 1850s.The manuscript leaves contain approximately thirty-five works including seventeen short pieces, followed by eighteen longer works ranging from 1 to 10 pages each. Among the scores in manuscript are piano arrangements from Wagner's Flying Dutchman, Rienzi, Lohengrin, and Tannhauser. Also included are arrangements from operas by Verdi, Donizetti, Meyerbeer, and Gounod. The music is neatly written in ink (with one short section in pencil), most likely in two different hands, with the titles, tempos, and lyrics in German. Bound-in after the manuscript scores are 10 printed scores ranging from 3 to 13 pages each (116pp. total). These include waltzes by Josef Strauss, H.C. Lumbye, Joseph Lanner, and others; and various extracts from operas by Bellini arranged for piano by Anton Diabelli. A unique and pleasing collection of waltzes and operatic melodies from Vienna's golden age. A detailed list of the individual arrangements is available upon request. .

        L?Arte di Convitare spiegata al popolo dal Dottore Giovanni Rajberti.

      Milano, coi Tipi di Giuseppe Bernardoni, 1850/1851. PRIMA EDIZIONE. Volume diviso in due parti; pp. XXII, (2), 102, (2); XXX, (2), 111, (1). Cartonato coevo; stampato su carta pesante. Ad ognuna delle due parti è preposta una prefazione con cui il Rajberti espone scherzosamente le ragioni che lo portano a scrivere questo ?frammento o fetta di galateo che tratta di un paio d?ore giornaliere che si consumano a tavola?. Il libro non è dedicato né al popolo, che ha scarse possibilità di imbandire pranzi, né al ceto alto che non ha bisogno d?insegnamenti. Il Rajberti vuole semplicemente sgombrare la mentalità borghese sia dalle forme esteriori dell?etichetta scimmiottata dall?aristocrazia, sia dagli altri pregiudizi che riescono a rendere penosa la parte dei convitati. Così mentre egli esorta ad abolire le formule troppo cerimoniose, non trascura pure di dare con gaiezza alcuni consigli pratici sulle singole portate, che da raffinato buongustaio milanese, combattendo la mania dell?esotismo, sceglie fra le tipiche della sua città.

        Experiments on the Section of the Glossopharyngeal and Hypoglossal Nerves of the Frog, and observations of the alterations produced thereby in the Structure of their Primitive Fibres. Communicated by Professor Owen, F.R.S. Received November 22, 1849, - Read Frbruary 21, 1850. [Extract from Phil. Trans., 1850, 140].

      (1850). 4to. Disbound. Fine copy. pp. 423-436 + 2 plates.. First printing of the groundbreaking paper that constitutes the starting-point of neuron theory, Waller's pioneering work on the nerves of the frog's tongue, which led him to the discovery of "Wallerian Degeneration". "In a short life span of 54 years, of which a little more than 10 years were spent on research, Augustus Volney Waller offered epoch-making contributions to the understanding of the structure of the nervous system. Waller's pioneering work marked the starting point for the neuron theory and provided an ingenious technique for studying neuroanatomical pathways and connections." (Venita Jay, Augustus Volney Waller)."Waller showed that if glosso-pharyngeal and hypoglossal nerves are severed, the outer segment, containing the axis-cylinders cut off from the cells, undergoes generation, the central stump remaining intact for a long period. From this he inferred that nerve-cells nourish nerve-fibres." (G&M: 1266)."To every student of pathology, Waller's name is synonymous with ''Wallerian degeneration.'' Using a simple technique of cutting the nerves of a frog's tongue, Waller found that the distal stump would soon degenerate, while the proximal stump remained relatively intact. From his observations, the astute Waller inferred that nerve cells nourished the nerve fibers. This important work, entitled ''Experiments on the Section of the Glossopharyngeal and Hypoglossal Nerves of the Frog and Observations of the Alterations Produced Thereby in the Structure of Their Primitive Fibers,'' was published in the "Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society" in 1850. Waller's finding that the proximal stump and the cell body did not degenerate was subsequently modified with application of better staining techniques." (Venita Jay).Garrison & Morton: 1266 ("The "law of Wallerian degeneration". The experiments recorded in the above paper were the starting-point of the neuron theory." ...)

(cover has little wear on corners and spine).  Plate of George Copway opposite title page and tissue covered.  Age toned pages, otherwise very good condition. A nice copy.Dedication page reads as follows: "The Short Sketch of the Bravery and Prowess of the Ojibway Nation, is most respectfully Dedicated to Col. T. L. McKinney, by his Friend, K". Verses of the battles through which the Ojibway Indians took control of the lands controlled by the Sioux around Lake Superior and east of the Mississippi River.Presentation copy lightly written in pencil  "Presented to Mrs. Ward By her most obliged friend Kahgegagahbowh” and lower down under this: NY May 30 1850 No 97 (...)"An epic poem but with controversy.  Julius Taylor Clark, a former Indian agent, later claimed (and probably did) to have written it. Apparently Clark gave the manuscript to Copway to publish on the understanding that Copway would use the money earned to promote the creation of an Indian territory west of the Mississippi. An early poetic narrative published by a Native American writer. Copway, wrote extensively about the history, culture, and traditions of his people. Field 363; Sabin 16718.

Anderson 346) Edwin Clark (1814-1894), after acting as mathematical master at Brook Green, and then as a surveyor in the west of England, went to London in 1846 and formed the acquaintance of Robert Stephenson, who appointed him superintending engineer of the Menai Strait Bridge, which was opened on 5 March 1850. In that year he published The Britannia and Conway Tubular Bridges (3 vols., the third an atlas). In August 1850 he became engineer to the Electric and International Telegraph Company, and three months later he took out the first of several patents for -electric telegraphs and apparatus connected therewith-. From then on he divided his time between electric and hydraulic engineering. On 4 February 1856 he took out a patent for -suspending insulated electric telegraph wires-, but most of his patents were for improvements in dry docks and floating docks, in the methods of lifting ships out of the water for repairs, and for constructing piers. He was elected a member of the Institution of Civil Engineers on 3 December 1850, and contributed many papers to their Proceedings, being awarded a Telford medal in 1866 for his paper -On the hydraulic lift graving dock-, and a Watt medal in 1868 for those on -The durability of materials-. Two years' residence in Buenos Aires, Paraguay, and Uruguay, provided material for his Visit to South America (1878). (ODNB)

        Autograph Letter Signed to M. Cap re publication of articles

      Paris, 1850. Bernard, Claude (1813-73). A.L.s. to M. Cap, dated 25 fevrier 1850. 1-1/2pp. plus integral address leaf. 212 x 136 mm. Creased where previously folded, minor foxing & soiling, but very good. Regarding the submission of an article to an unnamed journal, presumably edited by M. Cap: "I have sent the medical review article for the next number to the printers. I must leave today for 8 or 10 days to go see my mother, who is very ill. I will thus not be able to correct the proofs. I ask you to give them a glance during my absence. . . ." Bernard also asked his correspondent to send him current issues of the Revue medicale, the Revue medico-chirurgicale and the "Journal des conn[aissances] medico-chirurgicales," so that he might recast the medical review article into a different form, "which I believe will be very profitable for your journal." We have not been able to discover which article Bernard is referring to here.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED (ALS): "I regard New York as the most remarkable town in the world

      Cooperstown, 23 October 1850. Letter. Fine condition with dark ink in a Fine folder of this exceptional letter. A remarkable 3-page AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED on two sheets of 8-1/2" x 6-7/8" paper by the author of THE LAST OF THE MOHICANS written on behalf of James Henry Hackett (1800ñ1871) to his old friend Charles Augustus Murray (1806ñ1895) who was at this time consul-general in Egypt. In part: After imparting news of Hackett, Cooper reports on his age and on the development of his country: "Half my time passes me, in looking back. At sixty, if a man is ever to sum up the good and evil of his past life, it is high time he began. I was sixty-one last September and have grown gray. We are 'progressing' as we Americans call it, at a famous rate. New York must have doubled its population, recently, since you saw it.... Taking all things together, I regard New York as the most remarkable town in the world.... Trade is driving all before it, and has fairly invaded Broadway.... Talking of the dust, which is so shortly to be my portion [Cooper died the next year], one of the most painful of my recollections of my own travels, is the great number of the dead, among the acquaintances I made. At one time it really seemed as if to know me was to die.... My eldest daughter, whom you may remember, has ventured to give the world a book called 'Rural Hours.' In this country it has done very well.... There is a good deal of rumbling in our body politic, but I think nothing will come of it, just now. The South has too much at stake to risk, and every day it loses, increases the disparity of the forces. This acquisition of California, hems in slavery, which must finally fall of its own weight. What we are to do with the blacks, God knows, but we shall never amalgamate." Cooper goes on to discuss the importance of gold in expanding business ("a circulating medium being the great necessity of America") and devotes a paragraph to a paranormal phenomenon which he calls "the knockings": "All attempts at explanation are failures. They are not confined to one family, or one place, but have been heard in fifty places." He closes "Do not ask Hackett about my comedy, premature damnation being best forgotten." Housed in a cloth folder titled on the spine. Hackett was a successful character actor on the New York and London stages, who was considered for a part in Cooper's sole and unsuccessful attempt at playwriting, UPSIDE DOWN. This letter was given to Hackett to present to Murray in London (and is noted by James F. Beard ed., LETTERS AND JOURNALS OF JAMES FENIMORE COOPER: 6:229, n.2 as "unlocated").

        "Vot you say! Been here all day long and not catched anything. Ah! You should have been here last Wednesday. There was a chap caught an uncommon lot then to be sure."

      n.p. c. 1850 n.p., [c. 1850]. Image approx. 8 x 10 inches; matted and framed to 14-3/4 x 16-3/4 inches overall. Pen and ink and watercolor on paper, initialled "JL", and captioned by the artist, as above. . John Leech (1817-1864) was one of the most prolific and successful of the English artists and caricaturists of the mid 19th century. "His humour was like his talent, gentle, warm-hearted and positive, his world, the ups and downs of middle class life, the sports of the squirearchy, and the peccadilloes of army officers and undergraduates" (Houfe). The conventions of social humor he established with his first contributions to the newly founded Punch, in 1841, lasted into the 1920s, but his greatest fame came through his book illustrations, particularly those for Surtees's sporting novels. "Extravagantly praised by Ruskin, Leech's often careless but never crude drawings have survived in charm and humour to give us a refreshing glimpse of mid-Victorian society." (Houfe)
