        Autograph Letter, Signed, To Jeremiah Morrow, Cincinnati, August 10...

      1852. Memories of Ohio Governor Jeremiah Morrow by by an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court McLean, John [1785-1861]. [Adair, Robert F.]. Morrow, Jeremiah (1771-1852)]. [Autograph Letter, Signed, To Robert F. Adair, Cincinnati, OH, August 10, 1852]. Single leaf folded to form bifolium and a single leaf, all 10-1/2" x 8-1/2," franked on verso of single leaf. Content in neat hand to rectos and versos of bifolium leaves. Light toning, vertical and horizontal fold lines, small losses at wax seal causing very small text loss, but no loss of legibility, minor edgewear and a few short tears to margins. This letter is accompanied by a contemporary 4-1/2" x 3-1/2" copperplate portrait of McLean (on a 9" x 6" leaf). $950. * A substantive 4-1/2 page letter by U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice John McLean about late Ohio congressman, senator, and governor, Jeremiah Morrow, who died five months earlier. McLean had served in Congress with Morrow. Appointed by President Andrew Jackson, McLean is best remembered today as the senior Supreme Court justice, and one of only two justices, who dissented in Dred Scott v. Sanford. During the 1850s, when Chief Justice Roger B. Taney was frequently ill, McLean who presided over the Court. In this letter, McLean replies to a query about Morrow from Robert F. Adair and here appends a four-page memoir of his late friend. Robert F. Adair of Maysville, Kentucky may possibly be silversmith Robert Farriss Adair (1833-1907). Justice McLean writes: "Many years ago I was well acquainted with Mr. Morrow, having served with him in Washington, and lived in the same county with him in Ohio." McLean directs Adair to write to "Howard Dunlevy Esquire" who lived only six miles from Governor Morrow. Almost like a postscript, McLean writes "[a] very hasty sketch of Morrow." Much more than a sketch, it almost four pages in length and includes biographical facts and, more interestingly, personal observations, anecdotes and judgments.

These two pamphlets, published during his brief period in Nice by the Russian exiled socialist, proposing that Russia could become the first socialist country because of the communal traditions of its peasantry, were laughed at by Marx and Engels, then considered prophecy by the Soviets. Considering the methods used by Stalin to socialize Russian farms, Marx and Engels were probably right. These are important documents of the Russian Revolutionary movement. Stock#NS0016.

      Boston, MA: Bradbury & Guild, 1852 An early American railroad travel guide along the Connecticut River by railroad from Harlem to St. Johnsbury, a distance of 322 miles, made up of the following individual railroads: Harlem Railroad; New York and New Haven Railroad; New Haven, Hartford, and Springfield Railroad, Connecticut River Railroad, Vermont and Massachusetts Railroad, Vermont Valley Railroad, Sullivan Railrod; Vermont Central Railroad; and the Passaumpsic Railroad. "Throughout the entire length of this line there are scarcely a dozen miles without some object of interest to an intelligent traveller. 80 pages illustrated with woodcuts plus a seven foot long folded map of the entire route along the river. Title page has long shallow chip along gutter caused, I suspect, during production. The map is near fine showing only a little toning. This title is bound together with two others; "The Philosophy of Electrical Psychology: in a Course of Twelve Lectures," by John Bovee Dods (1851) and "A Month at Constantinople," by Albert Smith (1851). This was probably done by the publisher for odd titles remaining in stock and sold at a discount, a common practice back in the day. Bound in original half red leather over marbled paper covered boards with raised bands. Endpapers and several of the initial and final pages are foxed, though there are several minor spots of foxing throughout. Bookplate of George D. Kilborn on front paste-down endpaper.

        Fisiología del Gusto

      1852. First Edition . 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 Spanish—and the first translation in any language—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 writtenÂ… 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. Gernon, Une Affaire de Goût 138. Bookbinder label on front pastedown.Discoloration to blank verso of frontispiece; bit of scuffing to spine ends. An extremely good copy, scarce.
