      Marysville, Ca.: Published by R.A. Eddy, [before April 24, 1852].. Pictorial letter sheet, 8 3/4 x 10 3/4 inches, on blue paper. Light edgewear, with two small chips in the left edge. Near fine. A striking view of the terrible fire that devastated Marysville, California in late summer, 1851. Fires ransacked many California cities in the 1850s. Marysville was only founded in 1850, but grew quickly as a town on the way to the northern gold fields from San Francisco and Sacramento. The fire that struck on August 30, 1851 destroyed most of the wooden structures in the town. The image shows Marysville engulfed in flames that shoot up at menacing angles, and dark plumes of smoke swirl through the sky. The foreground shows dozens of people watching helplessly, and also depicts the formation of a bucket brigade. According to Baird, this letter sheet was produced before April 24, 1852, and is a reworking of the view of Marysville from two sheets published by Marysville bookseller, R.A. Eddy in 1851 (see Baird 280 and 280a). The lithograph was produced by the San Francisco firm of Justh, Quirot & Company, who also produced other letter sheets and maps for Eddy. Baird located only four copies of this scarce and compelling image. BAIRD, CALIFORNIA'S PICTORIAL LETTER SHEETS 289. CLIFFORD LETTER SHEET COLLECTION 297. PETERS, CALIFORNIA ON STONE, p.137.

        A Collection of Twenty-four Diaries, 1852-1899

      1852-1899. A collection of diaries spanning nearly five decades by a Centreville, Pennsylvania native, William M. Shriver, who was possibly a Civil War veteran. Twenty-four volumes, small octavo, various bindings (cloth, leather). Generally in fine condition. The brief entries are all written in pencil, with detailed household accounting lists in the back. They are mostly concise descriptions of the weather and the diarist's main activity of the day: working in the store, going to the local tavern, etc.. Shriver has signed his name with the location and date in most of the volumes. The years included are: 1852, 1853, 1869, 1870-71, 1871, 1872, 1874, 1875, 1876-77, 1877-78, 1880-1881, 1881, 1882, 1883, 1887, 1888, 1890, 1891, 1892, 1894, 1895, 1896, 1897, 1899. In the 1870 United States Federal Census, there is an entry for a William Shriver of Cumberland County, Pennsylvania with an approximate birth date of 1830. The Civil War holdings of the Pennsylvania State Archives contains the papers and military records of a William M. Shriver of Cumberland County, dating from 1855, 1862-66, 1871-72, 1877-79, 1886, 1891, and 1897. Though there is no definitive evidence that all this refers to the same man, still the possibility exists that the William Shriver born about 1830 in Cumberland County, Pennsylvania, is the same William Shriver who served during the Civil War, who, in turn, is the author of these diaries. Regardless, the diaries are a good resource for those curious about the daily life of an average citizen in 19th Century America. .

      "Manuscript Document Signed ?Jas Berdan ex off J.P.,? ?P.C. Arnett J.P.,? and ?G.A. Dunlup Clerk,? one page, 16? x10.25?. Morgan County, Illinois, November 2, 1852. Minor separation at edge of mid-horizontal fold, smudged in two areas so corrections could be made to the tally. Fine condition.Headed ?Abstract of votes for Eleven Electors of President and Vice President of the United States / in the County of Morgan and State of Illinois at an Election held in said County on Tuesday / the Second day of November AD 1852.? Morgan County is located in west-central Illinois roughly 90 miles north of St. Louis, Missouri, 230 miles southwest of Chicago and 30 miles west of Springfield, Illinois.James Berdan (1805-1884), a lawyer educated at Columbia and Yale (Class of 1824), was County Judge of Morgan County from 1849-1857. He later served as Secretary of the Tonica & Petersburg Railroad until it was merged into the St. Louis, Jacksonville & Chicago Railroad. Judge Berdan was a political friend of Abraham Lincoln. P. C. Arnett (1820-1875), a Tennessean by birth, moved with his parents to Morgan County in 1831. Arnett was prominent in county affairs for 32 years. He was the owner and proprietor of a grist mill at Waverly, Illinois. Berdan and Arnett each signed as Justice of the Peace.In the 1852 presidential election, the Democrats won Illinois, 80,378 popular votes to 64,733 for the Whigs and 9,863 for the Free Soil candidates, winning the state?s 11 electoral votes. Pierce carried Illinois and 26 other states to four for General Scott, 1.6 million to 1.4 million popular votes, 254-42 electoral votes. The majority of Morgan County voters cast their ballots for the 11 Democratic electors listed on this tally, including Leonard Swett and Richard Oglesby. 27-year-old Swett was one of Lincoln?s friends and an attorney with whom Lincoln practiced in the Illinois court circuit in the 1850s. He unsuccessfully ran for the Republican nomination for Congress in 1856 and, in 1862, as the Republican nominee for Congress, lost to Democrat John Todd Stuart, Mary Todd Lincoln?s cousin and Abraham Lincoln?s former law partner. Richard Oglesby was Republican Illinois Governor (1865-1869, 1873, 1885-1889) and U.S. Senator (1873-1879)."

Und am Ende seines Lebens hat er rückschauend das Resümee gezogen: "So entstand ein Werk, von dem sich wohl behaupten läßt, das es das erste derartige war und das wohl auch jetzt noch, die Vollständigkeit anlangend, seinesgleichen sucht, wenn dasselbe auch durch viele neuere Wege .... mit Bezug auf viele Thatsachen überholt worden ist"." - Das entstehende Werk war viel zu umfangreich für den Gebrauch im Unterricht. Deshalb verfaßte er aus praktischem Bedürfnis bereits 1852 ein "Handbuch der Gewebelehre für Ärzte und Studierende" (Lentner) das als erstes Buch der modernen Histologie bezeichnet wird (siehe Garrison & Morton). 'Handbuch' im ursprünglichen Sinne - als handliches Buch gemeint. So gebührt tatsächlich der "Mikroskopischen Anatomie 2.Bd.: Spezielle Gewebelehre" das Prädikat - "The first textbook of histology" zu sein. - "Die Zeichnungen der beigegebenen Holzschnitte (ausgeführt von J.G. Flegel) sind fast alle Originale und von mir und einigen meiner jüngeren Freunde, namentlich dem Herrn Dr. GEGENBAUR, dann auch von Dr. J. CERMAK, und Dr. CORTI, denen ich hiermit meinen besten Dank sage, nach der Natur verfertigt." Vorwort - R. Lerner, A.v. Kölliker, Gesch. Mikr., hrsg. Freund & Berg, pp.201-213; DSB, Koelliker, Erinnerungen a.m. Leben, S.188 ff., Norsdenskiöld, Hist. of Biology, p. 400. - - Rare First Edition - The first modern histology! - This book is probably the rarest of the author's histological works. - The first volume, intended as an introduction to the subject, was never published. Kölliker's usual method of working was to bring out separate treatises on specific details while a larger work was underway. Thus, while completing this book, he published his famous Handbuch der Gewebelehre des Menschen (1852), known as the first textbook of histology. In the present work, Kölliker considers the microscopic anatomy of skin, muscles, bones, nervous and lymph systems, digestive, respiratory, sense, and sex organs; "His breakthrough lay in presenting the study of tissue in terms of the cell theory" (DSB, VII, p. 438). - - Not in Osler, Waller, Cushing, Garrison & Morton, Norman Collection, Heirs of Hippocrates.

      Milano, (Giuseppe Ramazzotti e Luigi Bezzera), s.d. (1852). In-4 p. (mm. 298x212), mz. pelle coeva, dorso a cordoni con fregi a secco e oro, pp. (4),430,(2), molto ben illustrato f.t. (come da Indice) da 54 pregevoli tavole di vedute, litografate su fondo paglierino, tutte dettagliatam. descritte; ai monumenti antichi fanno seguito quelli del medio evo, quindi i moderni. L'opera è stata pubblicata a fascicoli, con cadenza settimanale. Il testo, curato da Giacinto Longoni, è racchiuso in delicata cornice con angoli floreali. E' questo uno dei libri più ricercati dell'Ottocento sia per le notizie sui monumenti di Milano sia per le animate incisioni, spesso di luoghi poco rappresentati fino allora. Cfr. Villa ?"Bibliografia delle Guide di Milano?", n. 236 - Predari, p. 14. Con fiorit. margin., più o meno lievi, ma certamente un buon esemplare.

      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."
