        City of Toledo, Lucas Co. Ohio

      New York: Miller's Litho, 1852. Lithographed map, hand-coloured, sectioned and linen-backed. (Minor staining, tear repaired at an early date). Folds into publisher's brown cloth covers, covers blindstamped, upper cover titled in gilt, cloth ties, modern brown cloth chemise, all within brown morocco-backed cloth slipcase. The first printed map of Toledo, Ohio. This very rare cadastral map of Toledo shows the city at a critical point during its initial period of growth. Although the town was formed in 1833, development and settlement did not begin in earnest until after the completion of the Wabash and Erie Canal. In 1850, the population of Toledo was 3829; a decade later, population had increased nearly 260 percent to 13,768. The map, drawn on a large scale, shows the locations of each plot with ownership information, as well as the locations of specific buildings, roads, canals, railroad lines, etc. The map includes an inset view of Toledo Central High School at the lower left. An early owner has added several pencil annotations to this copy, including changes in ownership names and the route of the Toledo and St. Louis Railroad line. OCLC locates but three institutional holdings. Not in Phillips, A List of Maps of America.

        Plantæ Javanicæ rariores, descriptæ iconibusque illustratæ, quas in insula Java, annis 1802-1818, legit et investigavit

      London: printed by Richard Taylor, for William H. Allen & Co, 1852. 4 parts bound in one volume, 4to. (14 1/8 x 10 1/2 inches). Title in Latin, preliminary leaves, indices and postscript in English, text in Latin and English. Folding engraved map of Java by J. and C. Walker after Horsfield with his routes marked in red by hand, 50 engraved plates by J. Curtis and E. Weddell after C. and J. Curtis (47 hand-coloured [6 of these double-page], 3 uncoloured [1 of these double-page]). Plate XXIV trimmed touching image as usual). Contemporary English green half morocco over marbled paper-covered boards, spine expertly rebacked with original spine laid down, the original spine gilt in five compartments with semi-raised bands, lettered in the second and fourth compartments, marbled endpapers, gilt edges A fine copy of this rare work on the most botanically interesting plants on the island of Java: this is the deluxe hand-coloured issue of this spectacular record of the findings of the first American to carry out scientific research in Southeast Asia This work was published in four parts over an unusually-extended period which has meant that complete copies are now rare. Lowndes notes that parts I-III were published at 5 guineas with the plates uncoloured. The deluxe issue with the plates hand-coloured as here cost 7 guineas. In addition, the present copy also includes an apparently unrecorded dedication leaf (dated 9 April 1852 acknowledging the patronage of the East India Company) which is not called for by any of the bibliographies cited below. Horsfield assembled his herbarium in Java between 1802 and 1819. Born in Pennsylvania, Horsfield first visited Java in 1800 shortly after qualifying as a doctor in Philadelphia. The astonishingly rich flora and fauna captured his imagination, and he returned as an employee of the Dutch East India Company, a post that allowed him to start his researches in 1802. The fall of Holland to the French gave the British an excuse to take over the Dutch overseas territories, and following the British capture of Java in 1811, Horsfield was able to obtain the patronage of the charismatic governor of the region: Sir Stamford Raffles. Horsfield travelled throughout the island observing not only the botanical, but also zoological and geological aspects of its natural history, and mapping it. Ill-health forced him to leave Java in 1819, and he accompanied his collections back to London. On his arrival in Britain, Horsfield handed the herbarium over to Robert Brown who "undertook the examination and arrangement" (prospectus, p. [v]) of the collection. Brown's work eventually showed that the herbarium included 2,196 distinct specimens: the importance of the collection was also recognised and it was therefore decided to publish detailed descriptions of the "more remarkable, new or imperfectly known plants" (prospectus, p. [v]). This work also fell to Brown, but the pressure of his numerous other projects meant that the publication was severely delayed. Brown was able to oversee the production of the beautiful plates, but then, with Horsfield's agreement, the job of writing and overseeing the rest of the work was passed on to Brown's assistant Bennett. He proved to be an admirable substitute and the final part was eventually published fifty years after Horsfield began his collection. Arnold Arboretum p.73; BM (NH) I, p. 135; Brunet III, 340; Great Flower Books p. 74; Lowndes II, p. 1122 (parts I-III only); Nissen BBI 934; Pritzel 613; Stafleu & Cowan 418.

        A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS CONTAINING MAPS OF THE VARIOUS EMPIRES, KINGDOMS, STATES AND REPUBLICS OF THE WORLD. WITH A SPECIAL MAP OF EACH OF THE UNITED STATES, PLANS OF CITIES, &c

      Philadelphia, 1852. Folio, 17 x 13 3/4 inches. Publisher's green marbled paper- covered boards, morocco title label elaborately tooled and lettered in gilt on upper cover, red morocco spine and corners expertly renewed to style. In a modern red cloth box, morocco label. A fine copy of this famous atlas, with handcolored maps of all the individual states and territories. The map of California shows counties in California and New Mexico for the first time. Despite its title, the atlas concentrates to a marked degree on the American continent, with forty-three maps of the area, including a fine double-page east-to-west-coast map of the United States. S. Augustus Mitchell and his sons were the leading publishers of maps in the United States during most of the 19th century. Mitchell had come to Philadelphia round 1830 with the intention of improving the standard of geography textbooks, Philadelphia then being the leading city in America for cartographical publications. A NEW AMERICAN ATLAS, published in 1831, was his first work. In 1845 he acquired the right to Tanner's NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS (first published in 1836), and in 1846 he published his first edition of the present work. Mitchell continued to publish the atlas until 1850, when he sold the copyright to Cowperthwait & Co. of Philadelphia. Thomas, Cowperthwait & Company published it until 1856, when it was purchased by Charles DeSilver. The Cowperthwait company continued to add, edit, alter, and hand-color the maps.

        Uncle Tom's Cabin; or, Life Among the Lowly (with laid in signatures)

      Boston: John P. Jewett & Company, 1852. First edition. Fine. A Fine set, each book with a small inscribed card laid in. The first book with very minor spotting to the cloth and a few leaves with very minor foxing. The second book with a slight tear in th cloth at the front joint and a small nick at the bottom of the spine. A small stain on the title page, otherwise the internal contents of the second book are largely without fault. A set that's clearly never been read and one that has been tucked away with great care for many years, quite exceptional condition for this set. The first book with the calling card of Miss C. H. Goodale on which the author has written: "Trust in the Lord And do good A sure way to attain happiness here & forever from Harriet Beecher Stowe February 27, 1888." The second book with a small card inscribed: "Very Truly Yours Harriet Beecher Stowe Mandarin December 2, 1881." Housed in matching custom slipcases with chemises. Perhaps the most influential social novel in American history. In 1850, Congress passed the Fugitive Slave Act, which mandated that escaped slaves had to be returned to their owners upon capture, even if they were discovered in a free state. Stowe began her book as a protest to this law - and it would go on to become the most popular novel of the 19th century. "Uncle Tom's Cabin exploded like a bombshell. To those engaged in fighting slavery it appeared as an indictment of all the evils inherent the system they opposed; to the pro-slavery forces it was a slanderous attack on 'the Southern way of life'... the social impact of Uncle Tom's Cabin on the United States was greater than that of any book before or since." (Printing and the Mind of Man) Indeed, the reaction to the book was so widespread, that it would inspire stage shows, plays, and even inspire pro-slavery counter-works, such as Aunt Phillis's Cabin and The Planter's Northern Bride. An apocryphal story of the time claimed that upon meeting Stowe, Abraham Lincoln said: "So this is the little lady who started this great war." "It is scarcely necessary to give in this place and in detail the plot of Mrs. Stowe's striking production; for striking and meritorious it undoubtedly is. The lady has great skill in the delineation of character; her hand is vigorous and firm, her mastery over human feeling is unquestionable, and her humorous efforts are unimpeachable." (Contemporary Review in The London Times). Fine.

        The recent operations of the British forces at Rangoon and Martaban

      Thomas Hatchard, London 1852 - First edition, slim 8vo, pp. vii, [1], 78; lithograph frontispiece, 3 lithograph plates (2 folding); original brown cloth, gilt-lettered spine; the binding a bit spotted and worn, but in all a good, sound copy, or better. A reliable eye-witness account of the first three months of the second Anglo-Burmese War by the late chaplin and naval instructor of the H.M.S. Fox who succumbed to cholera. Wikipedia notes: "In 1852, Commodore George Lambert was dispatched to Burma by Lord Dalhousie over a number of minor issues related to the Treaty of Yandabo between the countries. The Burmese immediately made concessions including the removal of a governor whom the Company made their casus belli. Lambert, described by Dalhousie in a private letter as the "combustible commodore," eventually provoked a naval confrontation in extremely questionable circumstances by blockading the port of Rangoon and seizing the King Pagan's royal ship and thus started the Second Anglo-Burmese War which ended in the Company annexing the province of Pegu and renaming it Lower Burma . The first substantial blow . was struck by the Company on 5 April 1852, when the port of Martaban was taken. Rangoon was occupied on the 12th and the Shwedagon Pagoda on the 14th, after heavy fighting, when the Burmese army retired northwards. Bassein was seized on 19 May, and Pegu was taken on 3 June."

        Print of the N.Y. 7th Regiment on Parade Drill in Washington Square, With NYU in the Background

      1852 - Hand-colored lithograph, N.Y., [1852], entitled "National Guard, 7th. Regt. N.Y.S.M. / From the Original picture by Major Btticher in the possession of the 8th. Co. N.G. / [The principal heads from Daguerreotypes - by Meade Brothers 233 Broadway N.Y. / New York, Published by Otto Btticher, 289 Broadway]." "[O]n Stone by C. Gildemeister, 289 Broadway N.Y. / Print by Nagel & Weingaertner N.[Y.]" "Entered according to Act of Congress in the year 1852 by Otto Btticher" 36 x 28 in. (sheet size). A beautifully hand-colored lithographic print showing the regiment on parade with mounted officers viewing from the left, and the public from the right. A scarce print. Historical BackgroundThe 7th Regiment comprised New York City's social elite and was known for its elaborate uniforms and equipment, and later its imposing armory on Park Avenue. However, according to the New York Public Library: "Prior to 1860, the 7th Regiment paraded and drilled outdoors. Here they are shown on Washington Square, with New York University and the Reformed Dutch Church in the background. This particularly detailed lithograph was made from a painting by Otto Botticher, and includes portraits of specific members, taken from daguerreotypes."The 7th's history dates back to 1806, when four companies of artillery were formed in the New York State militia and named the 2nd Battalion 11th Regiment of Artillery. It saw brief action in the War of 1812. In July 1825, the battalion was one of many commands turned out in New York City to welcome the visiting hero Marquis de LaFayette, the French aristocrat who had helped America during the Revolutionary War and brought France into conflict against the British to aid the new nation. To honor him, the battalion took the name "National Guard" in recognition of the celebrated Garde Nationale de Paris, which Lafayette had commanded during the early days of the French Revolution. The New York 7th Regiment was the first state militia unit to be named National Guard.During the Civil War, the 7th was one of the first units to respond to President Lincoln's call for volunteers on April 19, 1861, occupying Arlington Heights, Virginia to help protect the capital from possible attack by the Confederate Army during the first months of the war. In July of 1863, the 7th was ordered back to New York to respond to the Draft Riots and was on duty under General John A. Dix in New York City from July 16-20.After the war, a new armory, designed by Sanford White, was constructed for the unit in 1877. The 7th Regiment Armory still stands on Park Avenue between 66th and 67th streets in the heart of Manhattan's Upper East Side.Condition Professionally conserved. Margins trimmed resulting in the loss of some text.

        Napoleon Le Petit.

      Bruxelles: Londres, Jeffs Libraire- Editeur, 1852. Sextodecimo, original cloth. Inscribed by Victor Hugo on the front free endpaper to the wife of General Adolphe Emmanuel Charles Le Flo,"Aux pieds de Madame Lefl? le livre et l'auteur Victor Hugo." In very good condition with some browning and overall light wear. Napol?on le Petit (literally, "Napoleon the Little") was an influential political pamphlet by Victor Hugo which condemned the reign of Napoleon III, Emperor of the French. Hugo lived in exile in Guernsey for most of Napoleon III's reign, and his criticism of the monarch was significant as he was one of the most prominent Frenchmen of the time, and was revered by many. It includes the concept of two and two make five as a denial of truth by authority, a notion later used by George Orwell in Nineteen Eighty-Four.

Johnston's Renconnaissance, 1850" (Howes S-498). 140 pp + ads, folding map, and 72 plates (some colored). Plates 2, 21, & 39 not issued. Original cloth, unevenly sunned, with minor restoration to spine ends, old wax seal affixed to lower spine, and "1852" handwritten on spine. Binding sound, mild to moderate foxing throughout.

The examination and journals were made by a most intelligent and scrupulous explorer, as is evidenced by the numerous carefully drawn pictures of the different phases of aboriginal life and history." Simpson was the first American explorer to describe Chaco Canyon, Canyon de Chelly, Pueblo Bonito, and Inscription Rock, among other sites.

Rücken aus gleichfarbigem Material sowie Innenfalze erneuert.

        The recent operations of the British forces at Rangoon and Martaban

      London: Thomas Hatchard. 1852. "First edition, slim 8vo, pp. vii, [1], 78; lithograph frontispiece, 3 lithograph plates (2 folding); original brown cloth, gilt-lettered spine; the binding a bit spotted and worn, but in all a good, sound copy, or better. A reliable eye-witness account of the first three months of the second Anglo-Burmese War by the late chaplin and naval instructor of the H.M.S. Fox who succumbed to cholera. Wikipedia notes: ""In 1852, Commodore George Lambert was dispatched to Burma by Lord Dalhousie over a number of minor issues related to the Treaty of Yandabo between the countries. The Burmese immediately made concessions including the removal of a governor whom the Company made their casus belli. Lambert, described by Dalhousie in a private letter as the ""combustible commodore,"" eventually provoked a naval confrontation in extremely questionable circumstances by blockading the port of Rangoon and seizing the King Pagan's royal ship and thus started the Second Anglo-Burmese War which ended in the Company annexing the province of Pegu and renaming it Lower Burma ... The first substantial blow ... was struck by the Company on 5 April 1852, when the port of Martaban was taken. Rangoon was occupied on the 12th and the Shwedagon Pagoda on the 14th, after heavy fighting, when the Burmese army retired northwards. Bassein was seized on 19 May, and Pegu was taken on 3 June..."""

      1852 - A Sensational Case of Kidnapping [Trial]. Wikoff, Henry [1813-1884], Principal Defendant. Vannoud, Louis, Defendant. Cavallari, Luigi, Defendant. Trial of Wikoff, Vannoud, And Cavallari, For a Forced Marriage Between Miss Gamble and One of the Accused. Before the High Court of Genoa, February 9-10, 1852. London: William Shoberl, 1852. 64 pp. Lithograph portrait frontispiece of Wikoff. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in printed wrappers. Moderate soiling, rubbing to extremities with some wear to spine ends and corners. Light toning to text, foxing to a few laves, internally clean. * Only edition. An account of one of the sensational trials of the early 1850s. Wikoff, or as he called himself, Chevalier Wikoff, was an American impresario, occasional European correspondent for the New York Herald and, possibly, a spy for Lord Palmerston. He was engaged to Jane Catherine Gamble, an English woman. Gamble changed her mind shortly before the wedding and fled to Genoa. Wikoff tracked her down and apparently tricked her into coming along with him to his apartment. Shortly afterwards Gamble filed a complaint of kidnapping that landed Wikoff in an Italian jail for 15 months. He was found guilty in an Italian court and forced to return her letters and "extorted promise of marriage." Ever enterprising, Wikoff responded to the negative publicity with a memoir entitled My Courtship and Its Consequences (1855), which became a best-seller. Copies of The Trial of Wikoff are scarce. OCLC locates 7 worldwide: 2 in the British Library and 5 in North American law libraries (Harvard, Library of Congress, University of Georgia, University of Minnesota, University of Pennsylvania).

Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Haidinger setzte sich für die Gründung der kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien ein, deren Mitglied er bereits im Gründungsjahr 1847 wurde. Als größter Erfolg gelang ihm jedoch die Gründung der k. k. Geologischen Reichsanstalt am 15. November 1849, deren Direktor er 1849-1866 war. 1855 rief er mit Freunden geographischer Forschung die Geographische Gesellschaft in Wien ins Leben (erster Präsident derselben). Haidinger war nicht nur am Zustandekommen der ersten geologischen Übersichtskarte Österreichs maßgeblich beteiligt, sondern wandte sich auch der Sammlung von Meteoriten zu. Haidinger ist auch Erfinder einer nach ihm benannten Lupe. Zahlreiche in- und ausländische Auszeichnungen, Benennung eines Gebirgszugs der australischen Alpen östlich von Melbourne („Haidinger-Kette\"). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - Versand D: 12,00 EUR Haidinger, Schrötter, Geologie, Mineralogie, Brief, Letter, Lettre, Briefe, Autograph, Autographe, Autographen, Autograf, Autografe, Autografen, Signatur, Signiert, Signed, Signature, Unterschrift, Eigenhändig, Handschrift, Handschriften, Manuscript, Manuscrit, ALS, A.L.S., LAS, L.A.S.

      Belfast, 1852-1858. Zus. 5 S., Kl.-8° u. 4°. An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875). - Andrews „besuchte die Belfast Academy und das Academical Institution. 1828 studierte er an der Universität Glasgow unter Professor Thomas Thomson Chemie. 1830 studierte er mit Pasteur bei Jean-Baptiste Dumas in Paris und 1831 zog er auf das Trinity College in Dublin und erwarb dort eine Auszeichnung in den klassischen Wissenschaften sowie in den klassischen Altertumswissenschaften. Er promovierte 1835 an der Universität Edinburgh als Doktor der Medizin und schloss eine medizinische Praxis erfolgreich ab. Er wurde praktischer Arzt in Belfast sowie Professor für Chemie an der neugegründeten Hochschule für Medizin der Academical Institution in Belfast. Seit 1839 war er Mitglied der Royal Irish Academy. 1845 war Andrews Vizepräsident sowie Professor für Chemie am Queens\' College in Belfast. Er lieferte bedeutende Arbeiten zur Wärmeentwicklung bei chemischen Prozessen, zum Verbrennungsprozess und über das Ozon. Er leistete Arbeiten zur Gasverflüssigung (besonders Kohlendioxid), zur elektrischen Leitfähigkeit heißer Gase und auf dem Gebiet der Galvanisierung. 1861 entdeckte Andrews, dass sich Gase oberhalb einer bestimmten Temperatur nicht mehr durch Druck in flüssige Form überführen lassen. 1863 schloss er erstmals auf die Existenz einer kritischen Temperatur und bestimmte Oxidations- und Neutralisationswärmen. Er interpretierte Ozon als Modifikation des Sauerstoffs. Nach ihm ist das Andrews-Diagramm zur Darstellung der thermischen Zustandsgleichung von Gasen benannt“ (Wikipedia). --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz.

        Fisiología del Gusto

      1852 - BRILLAT-SAVARIN, Jean Anthelme. Fisiología del Gusto. Mexico City: Juan R. Navarro, 1852. Large octavo, contemporary half black morocco, raised bands, patterned cloth boards, marbled endpapers. $4200.First edition in Spanishâ€"and the first translation in any languageâ€"of “the most famous book in gastronomy,” with engraved portrait of the author and in-text wood-engraved headpieces and illustrations after those in the 1826 French first edition."One of the most witty discussions on food ever written… The work is filled with entertaining anecdotes and commentary on good eating, including several pages of impressions about the United States" (Feret, 38). Brillat-Savarin fled to the United States after the Revolution, only to return to France in 1797 and secure an appointment to the Supreme Court of Appeal. While he held that post until he died, his greatest passions were exercised in his leisure time. Brillat-Savarin wrote extensive treatises on art, culture, science, and, of course, gastronomy. His appreciation for restaurants was virtually unparalleled and he was known for throwing elaborate dinner parties at his home in Paris. He was known for his tuna omelette, stuffed pheasant garnished with oranges, and fillet of beef with truffles. In 1825, just two months before his death, this work was published. It made him the most famous gastronomist of the day and he became known as the ultimate authority on food and dining. The initial 500 copies of the French first edition immediately sold out and the book has never been out of print since then. Includes histories of cooking, gourmands, coffee and chocolate, international specialties, a study of obesity, and more. Text in Spanish. This Mexican Spanish-language edition precedes the first American edition, issued in 1854, as well as the first Spanish edition, which did not appear until 1869. Cagle 1199.

Symphony, composed in 1840 and published as Symphony no.2 in 1841, Mendelssohn... produced a symphony extending into the realm of religious music. Also, by introducing texted elements into the work, he took up an equally daunting challenge, that of responding to Beethoven's Ninth Symphony... Mendelssohn's solution, as he explained to Klingemann, was to attempt a hybrid symphony-cantata: a three-movement, through-composed orchestral sinfonia attached to a nine-movement vocal cantata, with biblical texts celebrating mankind's progress from darkness to enlightenment (the agent of this process was the word of God, as disseminated by the Gutenberg Bible). Linking the symphony and cantata is a recurring motto-like intonation... initially announced by the trombones and then given verbal meaning in the cantata by the addition of the text ?'Alles was Odem hat, lobe den Herrn?'."
