        REPORTS ON EPIDEMIC CHOLERA Drawn up at the Desire of the Cholera Committee of The Royal College of Physicians

      John Churchill, London 1854 - 8vo, pp. xvi, 220. 1854. Not in G&M or Osler. A scarce title; seldom seen. William Withey Gull (1816-1890) was a famous British physician, best known for his close association with London's Guy's Hospital. He was born aboard a barge (his father was a barge owner), and began his career as a schoolmaster. However, through the intercession of a friend and mentor, he was brought to London where he attended lectures at Guy's Hospital. His career advanced rapidly and, in 1851, he became an assistant physician and in 1856 a full physician of the hospital. In 1869 he was made a Fellow of the Royal Society, and he was created a baronet in 1872. His fame rests mainly on his clinical work, although he published papers on cholera, rheumatic fever, and paraplegia. Some recent commentators suspect that he may have been "Jack the Ripper", although, at the time of the murders, he was in his 70s and had suffered a stroke. William Baly (1814-1861) was a British physician who completed his medical studies at the Royal College of Surgeons, with post-graduate work at Paris, Berlin, and Heidelberg. He returned to London in 1836 and went into private practice. In 1859 he was appointed physician to Queen Victoria. He did significant research on dysentary and cholera. This volume contains two reports: one by Gull (pp. vi, 220) and the other by Baly (pp. xvi, 345.) The binding of this volume shows considerable wear, but our binder has discreetly stabilized any deterioration and strengthened the hinges, and replaced the endpapers. One portion of one map has been taped, leaving a yellow residue. Otherwise, the contents are clean and tight. Bound in original brown cloth, embossed in blind [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Hiram, Ohio, 1854-1858 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 ?A New Method of Learning the French Language embracing both the Analytic and Synthetic Modes of Instruction being a Plain and Practical Way of Acquiring the Art of Reading, Speaking, and Composing French on the plan of Woodbury?s Method with German? by Louis Fasquelle.

(New York), Boston and New York 1854 - Original wrappers, titled on the upper cover with integral uncoloured vignette, letterpress prospectus on the lower cover Provenance: George W. Wales (Boston, subscriber, pencilled initials on final part, with note of payment for the final part on 6 January 1854) A rare substantial run of the original parts from the most lavish ante-bellum work on the fruit trees of America: "the first major work executed entirely in chromolithography" (Reese). The 64 varieties featured include pear, apple, cherry, peach, plum and strawberry. The plates were all executed by the Boston firm headed by William Sharp and are accompanied by text which gives the history of each variety, a full description, its growing habit, flower and fruit, and advice on its cultivation. Each entry is headed by cross-references to the other standard European and American books and periodicals. The illustrations generally comprise a sketch of the growing habit of each tree, an outline of the fruit and occasionally an image of the flower. Charles Hovey was born in Cambridge, Mass. in 1810 and with his brother Phineas established a nursery there in 1832. By 1845 his huge collection of fruit trees included a thousand pear trees and four hundred apple trees. A keen plant breeder, he also produced a number of new varieties of Camellia. His literary output brought him to the forefront of horticultural writers with the American Gardeners' Magazine (renamed the Magazine of Horticulture ) which enjoyed great popularity between 1834 and 1868. The present work was intended by Hovey as an international show-case for what American pomologists had achieved, as well as an essential reference guide. It is his masterpiece and originally appeared in parts between 1847 and 1856 and is considered complete in two volumes with 96 plates.

        Sketchbook of Original Art.

      - Sketchbook, signed by the artist "Geer" with her monogram on the front pastedown; oblong 8vo; 6 x 8"; 38 leaves with drawings on 23 leaves them (balance blank); mostly pencil, some crayon, one watercolor of a sunset and its reflection in the sea; original canvas binding which is worn, lacking portions of spine, first signature loose. The drawings and watercolor are fresh and bright. Grace Woodbridge Geer (1854-1938) was a successful portrait painter and teacher. Her paintings are in a number of museums and collections specializing in art by women. A Bostonian, she studied at the Massachusetts Normal Art School and the Lowell Institute, and with Tarbell, Triscott, Tompkins, and Vonnoh. Primarily a portrait painter, she also produced landscapes and taught art. She was a member of the Copley Society, the National League of American Pen Women and the Artists Guild. The first and earliest drawing in this sketchbook is captioned &#132;A warm day" and dated July 25, 1894; it depicts a woman in a chair with a fan. The latest dated drawing, July 31, 1900, is the seventh from last in the sketchbook is double-page, and is captioned &#132;Up Essex River." There are four other dated sketches, five captioned drawings, and two further double-page views. Among these sketches are studies of woods and trees, several women, coastal and sea-shore views, a portrait of a black man, chimneys, a tower, and Wild Cat Mountain in Jackson, New Hampshire. On the back endpaper is written &#132;Woodbury, Dixon.Prang.Pencil, Eagle drafting pencil - is harder than", and some pencil shadings evidently to test. On the front paste-down endpaper is Geer&#146;s name written large, the initials GW being a monogram. The drawings are charming and show a mature, accomplished artist at work. Fielding, p. 318.

Winterfeld (1901-1990), der großen Erfolg mit Kinder- und Jugendbüchern hatte. Da ihr Mann jüdischer Herkunft war, flohen sie 1933 gemeinsam nach Österreich und 1938 über die Schweiz nach Frankreich. Dort wurde ihr Mann 1939 inhaftiert. Nach seiner Entlassung 1940 konnte die Familie jedoch in die USA auswandern.

        Porträtt av skulptören Bengt Erland Fogelberg (1786&#150;1854).

      - Olja på duk. Signerad: "Sandberg". Skrivet a tergo på en etikett: "B. E. Fogelberg sign. Sandberg". 27,5 × 22,5 cm. Förgylld originalram. Proveniens: Troligen i konstnärens ägo till åtminstone 1831. | C. F. Lindberg, Stockholm 1898. Arkiv: Svenska porträttarkivet, Nationalmuseum, 1937:1909. Utställd: Stockholm, Konstakademien 1822 (troligen). Konsthistorien rymmer många ungdomliga opponentrörelser. En sådan ägde rum på 1810-talet då Johan Gustaf Sandberg, Bengt Erland Fogelberg och Johan von Breda gjorde uppror mot de gammalmodiga undervisningsmetoderna på Konstakademien genom att 1814 bilda Sällskapet för konststudium och anordna en fri modellskola. I detta betydelsefulla vänporträtt möts två av rörelsens huvudpersoner, skulptören Fogelberg porträtterad av målaren Sandberg. Det är ett intensivt ungdomsporträtt av Fogelberg som utfördes innan han 1820 lämnade Sverige för att efter ett år i Paris bosätta sig i Italien. Vid denna tid bodde vännerna i samma hus på Norrmalm, f.ö. samma byggnad där Per Henrik Lings undervisningsanstalt för gymnastik och fäktningskonst var belägen (Jens Lorenz Beeken, Dagbog, paa en Reise i Sverrig [1818], Kjøbenhavn 1820, s. 79). I Statens porträttsamling på Gripsholm finns en mindre replik av porträttet, daterad 1831 (23 × 18 cm. Gripsholm nr 1975. Mauritz Beijerstein, Johan Gustaf Sandberg 1782&#150;1854 (1928), kat. nr 111). Den torde ha varit förlaga till Sandbergs porträtt av Fogelberg i planschverket Galleri af utmärkta svenska lärde, vitterhetsidkare och konstnärer från Gustaf I:s tid till närvarande tid (Stockholm [1835]&#150;42). (Porträttlitografin av Fogelberg, nr 94, är daterad 1840 och uppges i texten felaktigt vara utförd efter ett original av Södermark. Misstaget beror antagligen på att just Södermarks porträtt följer som nr 95.) Sandberg diskuterar projektet och nämner föreliggande porträtt i ett brev till Fogelberg redan 1827: "Jag håller nu på att måla mina samtida skickligaste artister, musici och lärda i samma format som det portrait [av dig] jag målade innan du reste. Forsell har i tanke att gravera dem". (Citerat efter Beijerstein s. 103.)De tre upprorsmännen framträder även i ett välkänt grupporträtt av Sandberg från 1815, hans finaste arbete i genren. Tavlan utstrålar "förtätad stämning av Sturm und Drang" (Sven Erik Noreen i Svenskt konstnärslexikon, 5 (1967), s. 34) och föreställer de sammansvurna inbegripna i ett allvarligt samtal, förenade likt grekiska krigare emot etablissemangets tyranni.Fogelberg hör till Göteborgs stora söner; han föddes i staden och efter sin bortgång i Trieste åtefördes hans stoft till Göteborg, där han 1862 begravdes på Östra kyrkogården.

        A NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS CONTAINING MAPS OF THE VARIOUS EMPIRES, KINGDOMS, STATES AND REPUBLICS OF THE WORLD. WITH A SPECIAL MAP OF EACH OF THE UNITED STATES, PLANS OF CITIES &c.

      Philadelphia: Thomas, Cowperthwait & Co., . 1854 - Folio, 17 1/16 x 14 inches. Chromolithographic title with large vignette, handcolored frontispiece of the heights of the principal mountains and lengths of the principal rivers, seventy-three handcolored lithographed maps, charts, and city plans (three double-page).

A fine copy of this famous atlas, with handcolored maps of all the individual states and territories, including city plans of New York, Boston, and Washington, D.C. Despite its title, the .ATLAS. concentrates to a marked degree on the American continent, with forty- three maps of the area, including a fine double-page east-to-west-coast map of the United States. Samuel Augustus Mitchell and his sons were the leading publishers of maps in the United States during most of the 19th century. Mitchell had come to Philadelphia around 1830 with the intention of improving the standard of geography textbooks, Philadelphia then being the leading city in America for cartographical publications. A NEW AMERICAN ATLAS, published in 1831, was his first work. In 1845 he acquired the rights to Tanner's NEW UNIVERSAL ATLAS (first published in 1836), and in 1846 he published his first edition of the present work. Mitchell continued to publish the atlas until 1850, when he sold the copyright to Cowperthwait & Co. of Philadelphia. Thomas, Cowperthwait & Company published it until 1856, when it was purchased by Charles DeSilver. The Cowperthwait company continued to add, edit, and alter the maps and to hand-color the maps.

      Stereotyped and Printed by Harris & Fairbanks, Herald Job Office., Cleveland, Ohio: 1854 - T.p. vignette. Illustrated with 4 cuts [1 full page]. Map, p. 44. "In December, 1853, the city of Erie and the neighboring township of Harborcreek, with the enthusiastic support of a large majority of people, tore up the tracks of the Erie and North-East Railroad, wherever they crossed or entered the city streets or the public highway. This made a seven-and-one-half mile break in the recently-completed chain of railroads from New York to Cleveland and the Midwest. The railroad repeatedly re- laid its tracks; they were as often ripped up. . Such was the beginning of the 'War of the Gauges,' which interrupted rail traffic between New York and the West for two months, and seriously inconvenienced it for two years. . This conflict . was one of the most fantastic episodes in Pennsylvania history, and certainly the most exciting in Erie history." Here offered is the first book publication to document, with individual statements & court testimony, this strife stemming ostensibly from differences regarding track width, but as is often the case, actually resulted from underlying strugges for "commercial leadership and economic advantage."
