        Illustriertes Manuskript zur Landung der unter dem Kommando des US - amerikanischen Commodore Matthew Perry stehenden Flotte 1853.

      O. O., ca. 1855.Mit farbigen Illustrationen auf 22 S. und 28 S. Text. 27,5 x 19,5 cm. Die Schiffe Mississippi, Plymouth, Saratoga und Susquehanna trafen am 3. Juni 1853 im Hafen Uraga (Teil des heutigen Yokosuka in der Präfektur Kanagawa) ein, am 11. Juni gingen Perry und seine Mannschaft in Kurihama an Land. Schiffe westlicher Nationen wurden in Japan seit den ersten Kontakten 1543 als "Schwarze Schiffe" bezeichnet, der Ausdruck bezieht sich heute allerdings praktisch ausschließlich auf die Flotte Perrys, dessen Landung den Beginn der ?-ffnung Japans zum Westen darstellt. - Das ungewöhnliche und reich illustrierte Manuskript zeigt u. a. das Flagschiff Susquehanna, amerikanische Matrosen und Soldaten auf dem Marsch nach Kurihama, einige Einzelportraits, Instrumente und Waffen, eine Karte des Shogunate Camp bei Kurihama, Karte von Uraga. - Mit der stilisierten Kao Signatur, die rechte Hälfte abgedeckt. Mit einigen wenigen kleinen Wurmlöchern, insgesamt sehr gut erhalten! Bücher ja

        Selections from the Records of the Government of India. (Foreign Department.) Published by Authority. No. III. Papers relating to the Resignation of His Excellency General Sir Chas. J. Napier, G.C.B., Commander-in-Chief in India.

      Calcutta: Thos. Jones, "Calcutta Gazette" Office, 1853 - Octavo. Original grey limp cloth, paper label on front cover. Spine and periphery of covers sunned, bump at head of spine (with concomitant light creasing of leaves), otherwise clean and in remarkably good condition. First and sole edition, most uncommon: Copac locates only three copies in British and Irish institutional libraries (Oxford, LSE, SOAS), OCLC adds three more worldwide (University College Cork, Minnesota, Wisconsin). It was published at the request of Lord Dalhousie, whose "controversy with [Napier] regarding certain new regulations affecting the grant to the Sepoys of compensation for dearness of provisions, led to the latter's resignation" (Buckland, Dictionary of Indian Biography, p. 106). This copy has an Indian association as it is inscribed at the head of the title page: "Col[one]l Maclean - Ardgour House". This would seem to be George Maclean (d. 1862?), one of the sons of Alexander Maclean, 13th Laird of Ardgour (Lochaber); he was a colonel in the Royal Artillery, who served as ADC to Sir Colin Campbell when the latter was Governor of Ceylon and subsequently married one of his daughters. The Gentleman's Magazine for July 1847 describes him as "serving in India". During their service together in India Napier had accompanied a column of East India Company troops under Sir Colin Campbell on the north-west frontier. In 1852 Campbell resigned his post, angered by the attacks against him by Dalhousie and the press; Napier wrote "My friend Colin Campbell has been driven from India".

        Kyukyu tekiho [trans.: Military Medicine & Surgery].

      Numerous full-page & double-page woodcuts. 45 folding leaves. Small 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title label on upper cover, new stitching. Tokyo: [Preface dated 1853]. First edition of one of the earliest works on military medicine published in Japan, apparently preceded only by Nanyo Hara's Toride-gusa (1811). This work was written in response to Admiral Perry's arrival in June of 1853. Great fear spread throughout the population that a terrible war would break out during an American invasion of the country. Hirano (active 1831-67), a leading physician of the period, wrote this book in order to instruct the general population in military medicine. The text is concerned with every kind of wound or ailment an army in the field might encounter, including the irritation and confusion caused by "poison smoke," a primitive form of chemical warfare. Also discussed are the treatment of gunshot wounds and the extraction of bullets; the treatment of burns and "metal wounds" resulting from hand-to-hand combat; the prevention of blood loss and techniques of bandaging; bone setting and the management of various types of dislocations; and the handling of heatstroke, frostbite, and drowning. One fascinating section discusses the psychological support necessary to prepare soldiers for battle. Pharmaceutical recipes are provided at the end. This volume has numerous full-page illustrations of Western-style medical instruments, bandages, splints, and tourniquets, as well as a number of interesting scenes depicting the repair of dislocations in all parts of the body. Fine copy. ❧ Mestler, A Galaxy of Old Japanese Medical Books, III, p. 157. .

        A Summer Search for Sir John Franklin With A Peep into the Polar Basin

Original publisher's blue blind-stamped decorated cloth, gilt-lettered on spine. Abbey Travel 642; NMM 920; Sabin 34758; Staton & Tremaine/TPL 3265; Arctic Bibliography 7716 Inglefield set out from Britain on his search in July 1852, commanding Lady Franklin's private steamer Isabel, seven years after Franklin had left on his ill-fated search for the fabled Northwest Passage. Once Inglefield had reached the Arctic, a search and survey of Greenland's west coast was made; Ellesmere Island was re-sighted and named in honor of the president of the Royal Geographical Society; Smith Sound was penetrated further than any known records; Jones Sound was also searched; and a landing was made at Beechey Island in Lancaster Sound. No sign, however, of Franklin's expedition was found. Finally, before the onset of winter forced Inglefield to turn homewards, the expedition searched and charted much of Baffin Island's eastern coast. Despite finding no traces of the Franklin expedition, Inglefield was fted on his return for the surveying his expedition had achieved. The Royal Geographical Society awarded him its 1853 Patron's Medal "for his enterprising survey of the coasts of Baffin Bay, Smith Sound and Lancaster Sound." This copy has been professionally restored. By using an actual first edition, highly detailed, dimensionally correct, faithful reproductions were made of the fold-out panorama and the fold-out map at the rear Ñ these were both missing in this copy when it was obtained. The two pages have been attached in their proper places by a professional bookbinder. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        BARGAINING FOR A HORSE. Engraved from the original painting in possession of the New York Gallery of Fine Arts.

      New York: American Art Union, 1851 [i.e. 1853]. - Engraved print, 11 x 12 inches; mattted to 15 x 16 inches. Small crease at bottom edge, else fine. Engraving by Charles Burt, after William Sidney Mount's famous painting of New England horse trading. This work is typical of Mount's style, capturing a scene from everyday rural American life. Standing outside a rickety stable, two men whittle sticks as they negotiate the price of a saddled horse, standing near a fence behind and to their left. Charles Burt was a Scottish-born engraver who emigrated to New York City, where he gained both experience and renown. This is among his better- known works. Though the line beneath the title attributes the date as 1851, the very small print at the bottom notes a copyright date of 1853, after the American Art Union had been dissolved. A lovely copy of this iconic image.

        Exodus: or the second book of Moses. Translated into the Cherokee language.

      Park Hill [OK]: Mission Press: Edwin Archer, Pr. Tall, narrow 12mo (17 cm; 6.75"). 152 pp.. 1853–[55] A scarce Park Hill imprint, entirely in the Cherokee language and using Sequoyah's syllabary (generally called the "Cherokee alphabet"). Hargrett states that "printing of the volume [of Exodus] was not completed until some time in 1855." The translators were Samuel Austin Worcester (1798–1859) and Stephen Foreman (1807–81). As a young man living with his parents in New England, Worcester had met and become friends with Buck Oowatie, a Cherokee whose name among Anglos was Elias Boudinot. Worcester studied for the ministry and after he had been ordained, he requested a post among the Cherokee. Once there he set to introducing printing, newspapers, and expanded literacy using Sequoyah's syllabary. Foreman was born in Georgia of a Cherokee mother and a white father. He was educated at Union Seminary, Princeton Seminary, and Marysville College (Tenn.), and was ordained in 1835. He made the trek from his homeland to the West with the Cherokee, and spent his life at and near the Park Hill mission. Removed from a bound volume, last two pages supplied (along with duplicates of integral pp. 145–50) from a taller, never bound copy. Supplied leaves with light waterstaining and loose and pp. 146–50 of main textblock also loose; early and late leaves of textblock stained, browned, soiled. Far from a perfect example but complete, useful, and, made up as it is, additionally illustrative of some aspects of handpress printing.

        Manuscript. California Blacksmith's account book

      "Auburn, California". 1853-1854. "Folio, unpaginated (88 pp. manuscript entries); This is the record of a blacksmith and wheelwright named Moses Preedom (Prudhomme) in the gold fields near Sacramento. Bound in quarter cloth over marbled boards; covers worn, contents clean and legible. According to ""The History of Placer and Nevada Counties"" Preedom was ""Auburn's pioneer blacksmith...Arriving at Auburn, Moses Prudhomme went to work in Richard Hildreth's blacksmith shop, which he bought out, after having worked for Mr. Hildreth for eleven months, and for many years he conducted one of the leading blacksmith shops in Placer County."" The book lists startup expenditures for tools and material, then records accounts with customers often identified by their nicknames - ""Missourian,"" ""Negro,"" ""Toothache,"" ""Teamster,"" ""Stutterer,"" ""Fortyniner,"" etc. Preedom rimmed and filed wheels, shod horses, made spokes and wagon tungs, and performed a wide variety of repairs. At the end of the book he lists his personal expenses for 1854, and these reflect the high prices goods brought in the gold fields. For example, four pounds of butter cost $2; a pound of tea $1; a dozen eggs $1.50. Gold was discovered in Auburn in 1848 by another French Canadian, perhaps accounting for Preedom's move there. "
