        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."

      - 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.

      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".

        Uncle Tom's Cabin. with 27 illustrations on wood by George Cruikshank, Esq.

      Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall, Uncle Tom's Cabin was the best-selling novel of the 19th century, and is credited with helping fuel the abolitionist cause in the 1850s.Upon publication, Uncle Tom's Cabin ignited a firestorm of protest from defenders of slavery, while the book elicited praise from abolitionists. As a best-seller, the novel heavily influenced later protest literature. According to BAL, the Clarke and Co. edition was published in London May, 1852, and the Cassell edition was published in August, 1852 and was the authorized edition. There is no publishers note of authors direct interest in the sale of this edition, so would indicate this impression was released before the multitude of pirate editions became known.

        Autograph Letter, signed ("Edward Everett") as Secretary of State, to novelist John Pendleton Kennedy, then Secretary of the Navy

      n.p., 11 nov 1852 - Secretary of State Edward Everett writes to Secretary of the Navy John Pendleton Kennedy on Justice Lemuel Shaw's behalf to recommend his son John Oakes Shaw for a position in the Navy. Oakes Shaw (as he was known) was the eldest son from his father's second marriage, to Hope Savage. He became the brother-in-law of Herman Meville when the author married Justice Shaw's daughter, Elizabeth, from his first marriage. In fact Oakes had truly disgraced his family when in 1844 he married an "inopportunely preganant Caroline (Caro) Sarah Cobb." Reading in full, "Mr. John O. Shaw of Boston a son of Chief Justice [Lemuel] Shaw of Massachusetts is desirous of being appointed a pursor in the Navy. His father, equally respectable as a Magistrate & a citizen, desires me to speak a good word for him. I have no knowledge of the young man, but I am sure the Chief Justice would not recommend him, if he did not think him fully qualified for the place" (MELVILLE, HERMAN) 12mo. 2 pp. pen-and-ink on folded sheet.

        Pteroglossus Aracari (Cayenne Aracari)

      1852 - John Gould (1804-1881) An illustrated plate from A Monograph of the Ramphastidae, or Family of Toucans London, 1852-54 Hand-colored lithograph Paper size: 21” x 14 1/2” Framed size: 31 1/2” x 25” John Gould was the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. The ‘bird man,’ as he liked to be called, had been “enamored with nature, and her charming attitudes” at an early age. This romantic enthusiasm combined with scientific and artistic skills and a forceful entrepreneurial personality, led him to produce a total of almost 3,000 hand-colored lithographs. Gould collected the scientific information and drew many of the rough sketches himself. These were then passed on for completion to skilled illustrators: at first, his wife Elizabeth and Edward Lear; and later such artist as Henry Richter, William Hart, and Joseph Wolf. The plates which resulted were a splendid fusion of art and science whose range is still unsurpassed. The dazzling illustrations from Gould’s monograph on the toucans are generally thought to represent his most dramatic, magnificent images. Gould recognized that toucans represent perhaps the most inherently stunning of all birds, and combined his passions for accuracy and beauty to create the most lavish images ever devoted to the subject of ornithology. The artist recognized that it would be impossible to embellish a bird as striking as a toucan, and he simply portrayed them as they were in life. The amazing range of vivid colors-shiny black, vibrant red, yellow, and orange-creates an unprecedented sense of animation. Shown against fairly simple backgrounds, the birds seem to emerge, large and engaging, from the page. Gould’s toucans appear as living creatures, not two-dimensional representations. The inspiration for the Toucans came while Gould was working on his Birds of Europe, when he became fascinated by a collection of toucans owned by a fellow ornithologist. He made several trips to Central European museums to gather material for the Toucans, and after the first edition was published, Gould redrew some of the plates and added 20 new birds for this, the revised and expanded second edition.

        The Capture of Major Andre engraving, advertising the 'Illustrated News', P.T. Barnum's illustrated newspaper

      New York:: P.T. Barnum, Henry D. Beach, and Alfred E. Beach; Office of the Illustrated News,. 1852.. Large broadside with unusual woodcut engraving illustrating "The Capture of Major Andre". Advertising subscriptions to P. T. Barnum's and Henry and Alfred Beach's newly published 'Illustrated News', with the large engraving by Tompkins Harrison Matteson.& & During this period (1840s - 1850s) Barnum was operating his immensely popular Barnum's American Museum in New York City; it sometimes received as many as 15,000 paying visitors per day, at 25 cents per visit. The Museum was an odd hybrid of lecture hall, zoo, museum, theater, freak show and rooftop garden with hot air balloon rides. With this early illustrated newspaper advertised here, P.T. Barnum hoped to emulate the Illustrated London News, established in 1842. Barnum's publication lasted less than a year, but it did engender Harper's Weekly and Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper. Nonetheless, the text at the top of the broadside boasts of the vast investment the three partners (Henry D. Beach and Alfred E. Beach, late proprietors of the New-York Sun) in this new venture subscribed ($20,000 each) in an effort towards making the new pictorial weekly a beautiful "pictorial history of the world", each issue 16 pages long and illustrated with 15 to 30 engravings. It was to commence "on or about 15th Dec'f, 1852...". The large wood engraved illustration is signed at the lower right by the American artist Matteson (1813-1884), known for his patriotic themes. The engraving shows Andre in stocking feet as one of his captors reads the documents hidden in his boots. Matteson employed a limited number of models; it is thought that the figure of Andre might be a self portrait.& & Below the engraving, the cost of an individual copy (Six cents), subscription prices for yearly volumes, binding of volumes, shipping costs, and the mailing address at the American Museum for subscription orders. Printed within ornate scrolled border, with notice "Please tack up this circular in some conspicuous place" printed below the border. & & Black printed on cream paper, 18 x 23 1/2" . Old folds, expertly restored, replacing some marginal losses and one part of the illustration. OCLC: 437890745.

Later half cloth, paper label on spines (4 vols in port-folio). The text of the Amphibia section is supplied in reprint.

Peters departed in September 1842, travelling on a Portuguese convict ship first to Angola and finally (June 1843) to Mozambique. There he managed to explore the entire coastal region and also spent nearly a year up the Zambesi River deep in the interior.... The collections he made were enormous and were written up, mainly by himself... a model faunal work for its day, comprehensive, authoritative, and well illustrated" (Adler, 'Contributions to the history of herpetology', p. 37).//The set comprises:/[Mammals] Zoologie I. Säugethiere. Berlin 1852. Folio. pp. xvi, 202, with 46 (35 handcoloured) lithographed or engraved plates./[Birds] Zoologie II. Vögel. Berlin n.d. 4to. 15 handcoloured lithographed plates.

        Treatise on Marine and Naval Architecture, or, Theory and Practice blended in Ship Building

      Lithographed frontis., 45 black & white plates, and two printed tables. 420, ii pp. Large 4to, orig. cloth (extremities with very minor wear, some foxing due to the quality of the paper). New York: D. Appleton, 1852. "Third edition" of the first great American book on naval architecture (1st ed.: 1849). Griffiths (1809-82), was one of the earliest outstanding naval architects in America and, during the early 1850s, his steamships were the fastest and finest in the world. "Through his writings Griffiths did more than any one else to put shipbuilding in America on a scientific basis, in place of the 'rule of thumb' methods then in vogue. He was not only an influential theorist, however, but a practical designer of ships as well, and one of the first in the United States outside of naval constructors like Joshua Humphreys, to specialize in designing. Most of his contemporaries, like Donald McKay, Samuel Hall, and Jacob Bell, owned shipyards and actually built the ships they designed...Griffiths, however, with his particular inventive genius and bold originality, was content to draw the plans and let others execute them. He showed amazing versatility in that period of constant innovation, designing outstanding vessels of many sorts -- sail and steam, wood and iron, war and commerce. Though the Ann McKim, built at Baltimore in 1832, is often called the pioneer clipper, Griffiths is credited with designing the first 'extreme clipper ship,' the Rainbow, 750 tons, launched in 1845 for the China trade...To secure increased speed by reducing resistance, he gave these ships slender bows and sterns rising high above the water, concave bow waterlines and 'the greatest breadth at a point considerably further aft than had hitherto been considered practicable' (Clark, post, p. 65). Conservative skeptics attacked these innovations, questioning the safety of such sharp, slender ships, but they proved to be the fastest afloat and strongly influenced the subsequent development of the American clipper. Griffiths then turned to steamships, where again his influence was important...His writings and the success of his ships brought him orders from all parts of the world."-D.A.B., IV, pp. 626-27. This book is very attractively illustrated with forty-five striking black & white plates, depicting various parts of ships and matters of design. A fresh copy of a book which does not survive well. Surprisingly rare. .
