        Evangelische Haus-Agende, das ist: Vollständige Ordnung des Hausgottesdienstes in Gebeten, Liedern und Bibellectionen für alle Tage des Kirchenjahres, gegründet auf die altkirchlichen Sonn- und Festtags-Evangelien (SIGNIERTES EXEMPLAR).

      Kunze, Mainz 1853 - Lederband der Zeit, XVI / 720 Seiten, Gr.-8°. Das Buch wurde vorne mit einer handschriftlichen Widmung an die Gräfin Eleonore zu Stolberg-Wernigerode versehen. Aus deren Bibliothek der Band wohl ursprünglich stammt. Dafür sprechen eine kleinen Prägung (Heinrich XXV. Prinz Reuss.) und ein nur noch schwach sichtbarer Stempel mit einer Krone. Die Widmung ist auf den 13. September 1855 datiert. An diesem Tag fand in Ilsenburg die Hochzeit der Gräfin mit dem Prinzen Heinrich LXXIV. Reuß-Köstritz statt, der einem nicht regierenden Zweig der jüngeren Linie Reuß angehörte. Der Einband ist etwas berieben und bestoßen. Sonst sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar. Sehr schöner Lederband mit dekorativer Goldprägung, dreiseitigem Goldschnitt, Frontispiz, mehrfarbigem Titel (in Rot und Schwarz), einer gefalteten Notentafel und zahlreichen Bildern, Initialen und Vignetten. Nach dem Tod ihres Mannes ließ sich Eleonore zu Stolberg-Wernigerode wieder in Ilsenburg nieder und engagierte sich im kirchlichen und diakonischen Bereich. Einen Namen machte sie sich besonders als Liederdichterin. Sie veröffentlichte außerdem mehrere Gedichtbände. Bekannt wurde vor allem der Choral "Das Jahr geht still zu Ende" (1867), in dem sie den Tod ihrer Freundin Marie Nathusius verarbeitete. Das Lied ging auch in die aktuelle Fassung des Evangelischen Gesangbuchs ein. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lehrbuch der Physiologie. + Physiologischer Atlas.

      - Stuttgart, Rieger'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung, 1853, 8°, XV, 562, 5 gefalt. Tab., Halbleinenband; Quer-Quart, (8), 118 pp. Tafelerklärungen, 46 teils kolor. lith. Tafeln, Halbleinenband mit aufkaschierter orig. Broschur; minimal fleckig. Erste Ausgabe - Selten vollständig angeboten! - - "Der vorliegende physiologische Atlas hat den hauptsächlichsten Grund seiner Entstehung in der Nothwendigkeit, in die ich versetzt bin, der Beweisführung meiner Lehre über die ursprünglichen Keimlagen und die Zellenwanderungen durch Abbildungen gewisser, bei den Missgeburten vorkommenden Erscheinungen eine feste Unterlage zu geben. Zu diesem Zwecke waren schon zwanzig Tafeln Zeichnungen erforderlich. Eine zweite Reihe von Abbildungen kam dadurch hinzu, dass ich genöthigt bin, die Resultate meiner neuen mikroskopischen Untersuchungen durch das Bild anschaulich zu machen, und einige weitere Bilder bedurfte es, um meine Eintheilung des Thierreiches zu erklären, sowie um meine Theorie der Bildungsgeschichte durch schematische Zeichnungen zu versinnlichen. Somit war schon ein reiches Material für einen Atlas zur Hand gegeben, und nur noch einige Lücken waren auszufüllen, um das Werk zu einem vollständigen physiologischen Atlas umzugestalten. Ich entschloss mich hierzu, damit der Leser meiner Physiologie, wenigstens für seine ersten Studien, sich mit meinem Atlas behelfen könne. - Hiermit ist nicht ausgesprochen, dass andere bildliche Darstellungen durch mein Werk gänzlich entbehrlich gemacht werden sollen. Gewiss, in dem trefflichen Atlas von Wagner, besonders in der neuen Ausgabe von Ecker, und ebenso in den Werken von Kölliker über die Gewebe sind noch viele weitere Belehrungen zu finden. Aeusserst schön sind die plastischen Darstellungen in Wachs, welche Dr. Zigler über die Entwicklung des Froscheies gegeben hat. - - Die Abbildungen der Missgeburten wurden, mit wenigen Ausnahmen, nach Objecten aus dem hiesigen, sehr reichen Kabinette durch Maler Lerch gezeichnet. Mein Freund und Collega Kobelt unterstützte meine Unternehmung nicht allein durch seine Geschicklichkeit in Fertigung von Präparaten, sondern auch durch treffende Bemerkungen und durch Mittheilungen aus dem reichen Schatze seines Wissens, so dass sowohl das vorliegende Bilderwerk, als meine Physiologie, hierdurch in mehreren Theilen einer grössern Vollendung zugeführt wurde. - - In der Darstellung der mikroskopischen Gegenstände vermied ich, so viel als möglich, schematische Zeichnungen. Hierdurch wurde zwar manches Bild weniger lehrreich, aber es behielt um so mehr das Gepräge der Wahrheit, da jeder Anfänger in mikroskopischen Beobachtungen in den meisten Fällen leicht von der Richtigkeit der Darstellung sich überzeugen kann. Da ich meine Untersuchungen in zwei Richtungen weiter geführt habe, als dieses von andern Forschern geschehen ist, indem ich nämlich einerseits die Zellen bis zu ihrer Entstehung aus den Dotterspaltungen zu verfolgen suchte, und andererseits bis zu den feinsten Theilen der Gewebe, den Molecularzellen, vordrang, war ich allerdings aufgefordert, Gegenstände in den Atlas aufzunehmen, die nicht immer bei dem ersten Anlauf sich dem Beobachter darbieten; ich beschränkte mich jedoch hierin auf einige wenige Zeichnungen, und verweise im Uebrigen auf mein Lehrbuch der Physiologie." Vorrede, Atlas - - Karl Heinrich Baumgärtner (1898-1886) "wurde am 21. Oktber 1798 zu Pforzheim geboren, wo sein Vater Beamter war. In Karlsruhe besuchte er das Lyceum, bis er 1815 das Studium der Medicin zu Tübingen begann, welches er 1816-18 in Heidelberg fortsetzte. Nachdem er promovirt und die Staatsprüfung bestanden hatte, besuchte er 1818 bis 1820 die Kliniken von Wien und Berlin und wurde hierauf Regimentsarzt bei den Jägerbataillon in Rastatt ernannt, 1822 zur Artilleriebrigade nach Karlsruhe versetzt. 1823 besuchte er die Hospitäler zu Paris und London und durchwanderte sodann, meist zu Fuß, das südliche Frankreich und Italien. 1824 wurde ihm die Lehrkanzel der Pathologie und der .

        Ruth. A Novel By the author of "Mary Barton"

      Chapman and Hall, London 1853 - 298, 328, 311 pages. 20 x 13 cm. This, her third novel, followed "Mary Barton" and "Cranford." Although her writing conforms to Victorian convention, her constant theme of tolerance predicated upon her strong Unitarian background, also filters to an emphasis on the role of women, and presents a devoted voice for her middle class characters. She also wrote the first biography of Charlotte Bronte. "Ruth" is the story of a seamstress wronged by a gentlemen as a teenager who through good deeds more than redeems herself only to be shunned by her congregation upon learning of her earlier life. Gaskell maker clear Ruth is more a Christian than the her smug church members miming conventional Victorian mores. Indeed, the book was burned and removed from circulating libraries. SADLIER 933. Bookplates, owner inscription dated 1910, Bound by Root & Son, marbled endpapers, raised bands, spine panels richly gilt, joints slightly rubbed. Three quarter navy morocco and blue cloth, spines uniformly faded to brown. Teg. Very good/Near fine. 3vols [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Über die Anwendung des Augen-Spiegels nebst angabe eines neuen Instrumentes.

      . Leipzig, Verlag von Immanuel Müller, 1853, 8°, XII, 209, (1) pp., mit einer lithographierten gefalt. Tafel., feiner Halbleinenband mit marmor. Deckelbezügen und Rückenvergoldung.. Rare - First Edition! - This important book presents the first description of several important ophthalmic phenomena pertaining to the physiology of the retina and the pathologic appearance of diseased optic structures. The work is divided into a physiological and a pathological section. The author discusses the application of the ophthalmoscope to many ophthalmological conditions, and describes the instrument with which he made his observations. - - Ernst Adolpf Coccius (1825-1890), "born in Knauthain, near Leipsic, Germany, studied at the Universities of Leipsic, Prague and Paris. The chief among his teachers of ophthalmology was Ritterich and later, after 1852 Theodor Ruete . After his return from Paris to Leipsic he served for some years as assistant and privat-docent. In 1857 he was made extraordinary, and in 1867 ordinary, professor of ophthalmology-all at the same university. He was one of the earliest workers with the ophthalmoscope, and, in fact, was the first to make an important modification of the instrument as invented by von Helmholtz. He was also the first to describe the reflex of the fovea centralis, as well as a number of other ophthalmoscopic phenomena. He was also the first to describe the filtration scar in glaucoma, as well as newly-formed blood-vessels in the vitreous. He it was who first pointed out that the retina could be rendered visible by laying against the cornea a glass slide on which had been placed a drop of water. He discovered detachment of the retina. In addition to all these things, he made important contributions to ocular tonometry, the examination of the fundus with polarized light, to our knowledge of variolous ocular inflammation and of the visual purple, and, indeed, to a number of other important ophthalmologic matters.

Lacks map. (Senate Executive Document 59) (Howes: 528) 1st edition. After the conquest of New Mexico and California it was apparent that transportation and communications needed to be improved between these new territories and the rest of the United States east of the Mississippi. Geographical knowledge of most of this area, particularly northwestern New Mexico (now northern Arizona), was very limited and inaccurate. Some maps of the day showed a river system that might provide a possible navigable water corridor between New Mexico and the Gulf of California via the Zuni, Little Colorado, and Colorado Rivers. In September of 1851 Captain Lorenzo Sitgreaves, along with a small crew of topographers, naturalists, artists, and support personnel, and an escort of 30 infantrymen left the Zuni Pueblo in western New Mexico by pack train with instructions to explore and map the Zuni and Colorado Rivers and evaluate their navigability in light of a possible impending war with the Mormons in Utah. They traveled southwest along the Zuni River to its mouth and then headed northwest along the Little Colorado, intending to follow it to the Colorado. When they reached Grand Falls (northwest of present-day Winslow, Arizona) their guide, Antoine Leroux, advised them that it was unwise to follow the river any further because it flowed in a deep canyon for the rest of its course and emptied into the great canyon of the Colorado River. They left the river and struck off due west around the north side of the San Francisco Mountains, discovering the Wupatki Indian Ruins along the way, and looped southwestward around the south side of Bill Williams Mountain. The rest of their westward march followed near the future alignment of Route 66 to the Colorado River near the modern town of Bullhead City, Arizona. After a difficult march south along the Colorado River they reached Camp Yuma on November 30. Of course, Sitgreaves discovered that the Zuni and Little Colorado Rivers were not at all navigable and would be useless to transport troops and supplies. The Colorado River, however, was found to be navigable along the entire distance that he explored. Sitgreaves' official report, "Report of an Expedition Down the Zuni and Colorado Rivers in 1851," was published in 1853. Condtion: Foxing, lacks map, all other plates present as called for in Howes, some folding. Rebound in attractive three quarter leather else a about very good.

        Verdant Green, An Oxford Freshman": Pencil drawing, signed "Cuthbert Bede- 1853" lower left

      n.p, 1853 - A popular Victorian literary character was Mr. Verdant Green, an Oxford Freshman, hero of several books written and illustrated by a Midland vicar, Rev. Edward Bradley (1827-1889) under the pen-name of Cuthbert Bede. Bradley had learned wood-engraving from no less than George Cruikshank, but, as Houfe notes, "remained very much the amateur, illustrating his own books-and others in a jolly and careless style." He also drew for Punch, and "was one of the first illustrators to satirise photography." This drawing, jolly and careless, shows two sketches of the hapless freshman unsuccessfully defending a wicket--the drawings appear in more finished wood-engraved form on pages 100-101 of The Adventures of Mr. Verdant Green-- and a more formal portrait, done in the year in which The Adventures first appeared, thus making it an Oxford, literary, and cricket item all in one Image 9-1/2 x 12 inches; attractively gilt-framed, with lettered French mat, 17-1/2 x 19-1/2 inches overall. . .

Original publisher's cloth with floral blind embossed decoration and gilt lettering to cover. Skillfully rebacked with gilt-lettered spine. Lower corners slightly bumped, otherwise a very nice copy.

Anne Pratt (1806-93), a grocer's daughter from Kent and author of Common Things of the Seaside and Our Native Songsters, illustrated all of her botanical books in the spirit of the Victorian Naturalists and successfully merged the study of botany with romantic flower-lore. Wild Flowers is Miss Pratt's first botanical work. In 1855, she produced her hallmark work on British Flora: The Flowering Plants and Ferns of Great Britain. (Blunt p. 236).

        Report of an Expedition down the Zuni and Colorado Rivers

      Robert Armstrong, DC 1853 - Senate Ex. Doc. 59, 32d Congress, 2nd Session. 1st, bound in 3/4 leather by an unknown binder; name "N.H. Walley" stamped at bottom of spine. Good only; both boards are loose, and have been held in place with new cords by a binder (in other words, not completely restored). Marbled paper of covers is heavily rubbed. A triangular piece at the top of the spine is threatening to chip off. Inside things are better. This copy belonged to Ruthven Deane (1851-1934), famous ornithologist, scholar and bookplate collector; his bookplate is on the marbled front pastedown. (The endpapers are split at the hinges front and back.) He was an early President of the Illinois Audubon Society, which preceded the National Audubon Society. On the first of 2 blank pages is the signature "Ruthven Deane, 1.Mch.1849." Beneath this, in a different pen, he had begun to write "List of birds" but the ink was bleeding, so he wrote on a thick card, "List of birds by Dr. S.W. Woodhouse on page 58, Also autograph letter of the author. R. Deane." He pasted this card in, along with a newspaper notice of Woodhouse's death, dated 24 Oct. 1904. Samuel Washington Woodhouse (1821-1904; note that both men lived 83 years) lost the use of a finger to a rattlesnake bite on this expedition; apparently his companions advised him that the best treatment was to stay drunk all night. The AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED by Woodhouse is tipped in at p. 58, where his section on birds begins; he also wrote the section on Mammals, and the Medical Report. It was written to Mr. Deane in Philadelphia on May 28th, 1900, and concerns an upcoming trip to Boston on the way to Maine. There is scattered but minimal foxing in the text. The plates (with the usual 1st-state numbering problems) are very clean, with only a bit of toning around the edges. Plates 13-21 of Plants have some foreedge tears, and some upper corners creased. The large map is in about good plus condition; several tears at its hinge have been repaired, and there are a number of sm. holes where folds intersect. It is lightly toned but clean and free of foxing. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Bosquejo economico politico de la isla de Cuba, comprensivo de varios proyectos de prudentes y saludables mejoras que pueden introducirse en su gobierno y administracion.?

      Madrid, Imprenta de D. Manuel Pita, Madera Alta, 1852, and Habana: Imprenta de Barcina, 1853. - Lithograph portrait of author. Tables in text. Lithographic portrait, 420 pp.; 462 pp., (1 blank l.). 2 volumes. 8°, contemporary quarter maroon morocco over decorated boards (slight defect to head of spine of volume II; other very minor wear at extremities), marbled endpapers, sprinkled edges, two leather labels for each volume, gilt letter. Light browning in second volume (but not brittle); first volume clean and crisp. A very good to fine set. "C de E" at foot of each spine. Marginal notes in pencil on title page. 2 volumes. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Torrente begins by discussing the movement for Cuban independence, including British and American attitudes and involvement, and royal decrees of the 1850s regarding Cuba. From vol. I, p. 132 he describes Cuban climate, topography, agriculture, population, transportation, the clergy, justice system, public education, police, and civil government, with particular attention to municipal government and trade with Spain. Volume II is concerned with improving trade, particularly in grains and minerals, and with reforming the monetary system, banks, and the tax system.Mariano Torrente (Barbastro, Huesca, 1792-Havana, 1856) fought in the Peninsular War before being named consul to the Papal States (1815-1822). Named consul at Livorno, he became a close friend of Agustín Iturbide. Torrente's @Historia de la Revolución hispanoamericana, Madrid, 1829-1830, was the first overview of the Latin American independence movements - of which Torrente himself strongly disapproved. Torrente had years of firsthand knowledge of Cuba. He was sent in 1833 to the Tesorería de Rentas de La Habana, remaining there until 1840, and he returned to Cuba for good in 1843, after holding a series of high government positions in Spain. He remained convinced that Spain should attempt to reconquer its former Latin American colonies.Among Torrente's many published works are several dealing with Cuba: @Proyecto de contribución, 1838; @Opúsculo sobre la Hacienda de la isla de Cuba, 1840; @Cuestión importante sobre la esclavitud, 1841; and @Memoria sobre la esclavitud, 1841.---- Trelles III, 239-40.

        The Famous Clockmaker Silas Hoadley Writes To The President Of A Railroad, Asking Him To Reroute A Line: ?The Road Down The Brook From My Place To Waterville Could Not Consistently Be Blocked Up So As To Prevent The Travel?It Is Practicable To Change The Road East Of R. Road, But It May Not Be Acceptable?

      ALS. 1pg. 7 ¾? x 12 ½?. March 31, 1853. Plymouth [Connecticut]. A rare autograph letter signed ?Silas Hoadley? to James M. Bunce, the president of the Hartford, Providence and Fishkill Railroad: ?Would state in reply to yours of the 26th inst that have had a conference this day with Mr. Bronson (1st Select Man of Waterbury) and several others who expressed the opinion that the road down the brook from my place to Waterville could not consistently be blocked up so as to prevent the travel, that appears to be there general impression so far as my enquiries have extended. As I remarked in my former letter, it is practicable to change the road east of R. Road, but it may not be acceptable. I see no way to come to any decision or any thing useful, but for those in authority to come out & act. To move the road east will make about ½ a mile more road to built than to keep the west side of a brook, and after all it may be found the less expensive to keep the west side. All this...may be so, does not pay for the reading and in conclusion would say that a drop in the bucket, or the dust of the balance, would be like the influence in this case. Your humble servt Silas Hoadley?. The letter has three mailing folds and is in very fine condition. I could find no other examples of a Hoadley letter selling at auction.
