        HORN'S OVERLAND GUIDE, FROM THE U.S. INDIAN SUB-AGENCY, COUNCIL BLUFFS, ON THE MISSOURI RIVER, TO THE CITY OF SACRAMENTO, IN CALIFORNIA

      New York. 1852.. 83,[1],18pp. plus large folding map. 16mo. Original cloth, stamped in blind and gilt. Cloth very lightly sunned. A few slight fox marks at the left edge of the map. Very clean and bright internally. Overall, a fine copy. In a half morocco and cloth box. One of two issues of the first edition of the "best handbook for the central route available at the time" (Howes). This is the issue with the "opinions of the press" on page five, and the longer pagination of the main text. Hosea Horn was an Iowa lawyer who travelled the routes himself and produced this detailed overland guide, the most popular and best known of its day. The text consists of a lengthy list of "Notable Places, Objects and Remarks," and follows the trail in a detailed, step-by-step fashion, with mileage charts, distance between places, etc. The map was executed by Colton and shows the entire central route, with all the cutoffs, marked in red. "Especial importance attaches to this work from the fact that it was one of the few guides which actually measured and described much of the route traversed. Horn had personally been over all the 'cut-offs' and he prepared what is possibly the most exact account of the 'Overland Trail' which has come down to us" - Eberstadt. "One of the best of the guides, as it is one of the few where the distances were closely measured" - Streeter. WAGNER-CAMP 214. COWAN, p.292. GRAFF 1952. WHEAT GOLD REGIONS 221. HOWES H641, "b."

      - Göttingen, Verlag der Dieterischen Bhdlg., 1852, 2 Bl., 32 pp., 1 gefalt. Taf. mit 5 Abb., feiner Halbleinenband der Zeit. The First Practical Ophthalmoscope - Rare First Edition of the second book on the ophthalmoscope, invented by Helmholtz in 1851. - By means of several improvements Christian Georg Theodor Ruete (1810-1867) was the first to produce a practical ophthalmoscope. He introduced a lens system for examining the inverted image, and improved the illumination. He was the first to use a concave mirror to increase the amount of light entering the pupil. Wheras Helmholtz, in his calculations had interposed a convex lens between the mirror and the eye of the examiner, Ruete interposed one ot wo such lenses between the mirror and the patient, separating the examiner from the patient by about eighteen inches. This gave the examiner a small inverted picture of the background of the eye."

        James A. Garfield?s signed copy of British Archdeacon William Paley?s ?View of the Evidences of Christianity? ? Garfield had been baptized into the Disciples of Christ in 1850

      [Hiram, Ohio], early 1850s "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 signed ?James A. Garfield? in pencil on first blank flyleaf. ?Archdeacon Paley?s View of the Evidences of Christianity.? Philadelphia: Troutman & Hayes, 1852. 264 pages, 4? x 5.75?. Worn leather covers, edges, and gilt-lettered spine; part of label on spine missing. Internally sound. Boards and spine professionally restored to very good condition.Housed in a custom red-cloth covered clamshell case with ?Paley?s / View of / Christianity? stamped in gilt on a black leather label at the top of the spine and, on lower portion, also in gilt, ?James Garfield?s / Signed Copy / 1852.?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 ... While at Chester, he met a Miss Lucretia Rudolph, his future wife ... His nature, always religious, was at this period profoundly stirred in that direction. He was converted under the instructions of a Campbellite preacher, was baptized and received into that denomination. They called themselves ?The Disciples? condemned all doctrines and forms and sought to direct their lives by the Scriptures, simply interpreted, as any plain man would read them. This sanction to independent thinking given by religion itself had great influence in this young man that kept his earnest nature out of the ruts of bigotry. From this moment, his zeal to get the best education heightened and he began to take wider views, to look beyond the present and into the future. In 1851, after finishing his studied in Chester, he entered the principal educational institution of the Campbellites [Disciples of Christ], Hiram Eclectic Institute (later Hiram College).?In this book, ?View of the Evidences of Christianity? (1794), British Archdeacon William Paley argued for the truth of Christianity based on his understanding of historical evidence. Paley supplemented human reason with divine revelation as supporting foundations for the existence of God and miracles."

        Lehrbuch der Physiologie des Menschen. 1.Bd.: Physiologie der Atome, der Aggregatzustände, der Nerven und Muskeln; 2.Bd.: Aufbau und Verfall der Säfte und Gewebe. Thierische Wärme.

      - Heidelberg, Leipzig 1852/56. Kl.8°, (4), 458, (2), X, 501 pp., 208 Holzschn., Tab., 2 feine Halbleinenbände; mit ExLibris von 'Josef Kapfhammer' (1888-1968). Erste Ausgabe! - "Das zweibändige Lehrbuch der Physiologie, welches 1852 und 1856 von Carl Ludwig (1816-1895) veröffentlicht wurde, markiert den Einschnitt, der die vorhergehende Epoche der Physiologie von der jetzt beginnenden physikalisch - chemischen Richtung der Physiologie in der zweiten Jahrhunderthälfte trennt. 'Die wissenschaftliche Physiologie hat die Aufgabe, die Leistungen des Tierleibes festzustellen und sie aus den elementaren Bedingungen desselben mit Notwendigkeit herzuleiten', so lautet der erste Satz der Einleitung in diesem Buche. Die Physiologie soll eine auf den lebenden Organismus angewandte Physik und Chemie sein. 'Die vorliegende Auffassung ist, wie allbekannt nicht die hergebrachte, sie ist diejenige unter den neueren, welche man als eine besondere gegenüber der vitalen mit dem Namen der physikalischen bezeichnet'. (.) - Müller war für die experimentelle Physiologie ein überragender Vorläufer und Wegbereiter, aber nicht der große Inaugurator und Entdecker wie C. Ludwig, dem eine Unzahl völlig neuer Erkenntnisse zu verdanken sind. (.) Müllers Haltung dem Organismus gegenüber war ehrfurchtsvoller, sein Forschen mehr beobachtend als eingreifend, mehr passiv als aggressiv, sein Denken war also biologischer. Ihm war der Gesamtzusammenhang der Erscheinungen wichtiger als der Mechanismus eines Teilvorganges. So ist er der überragende Vertreter einer mehr biologischen Richtung der Physiologie.(.) - Demgegenüber hat C. Ludwig mit progammatischer Einseitigkeit der rein physikalisch-chemischen Richtung der Physiologie den Weg gewiesen, welche den Stil der Physiologie in den letzten hundert Jahren bestimmt hat." K. Rothschuh pp.117-123. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        COLONNE MOBILE EN CALABRE DANS L'ANNEE 1852 TOURNEE EN CALABRE

      PILET ET COUGNARD 1852 Edizione originale in 8° oblungo, pp. 174 con numerose e belle illustrazioni nel testo.Brossura originale coeva. Vivida testimonianza del viaggio in Italia meridionale di Horace de Rilliet, scrittore inviato al seguito del 13° Battaglione in qualità di chirurgo. Così ne parla Benedetto Croce nei suoi Aneddoti di varia letteratura: " L'opera di de Rilliet se fosse messa a stampa col corredo dei disegni illustrativi formerebbe il più vivo quadro della Calabria circa la metà del secolo passato... Il Rilliet guardava e disegnava, osservava e annotava quanto gli si offriva giorno per giorno, ora per ora, ma si era ben istruito intorno alle vicende accadute negli ultimi cinquant'anni nella terra che stava per visitare, e aveva consultato e studiato molti libri per prepararsi all'opera sua... paesaggi, scene, costumi, aneddoti, figure e figurine della più varia gente si susseguono nelle sue pagine, delle quali mi sembra opportuno dare un paio di saggi testuali".
