        Earliest Mormon Newspaper in Utah

      Great Salt Lake City, Utah 1854 - Newspaper. Deseret News, No. 23. Great Salt Lake City, Utah. August 17, 1854. Reports proceedings of the Mormon Church, Indian attacks, missionary activities in London, international events such as the Crimean War, and the first laying of stone for the Washington Monument. Front page includes excerpts from History of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, later published in full by the Deseret News itself, and a "Discourse" by church leader Heber Kimball. Historical BackgroundThe first prophet and leader of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (the Mormons), Joseph Smith, Jr., was murdered in Carthage, Illinois in 1844. A central theme in the early history of the Mormons was the unwillingness of American society to tolerate their presence. Brigham Young acceded to Smith's leadership role as President of the Council of Twelve Apostles, and determined to form a new state in the Mountain West. Young brought the first band of pioneers to the Salt Lake Valley in July, 1847, when Mexico still theoretically ruled the territory. Over the next two decades, more than 70,000 followed.In 1848, the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo secured American control of the Mountain West. Utah Territory was established as part of the Compromise of 1850. With cooperative labor and cutting-edge irrigation techniques, the Mormons established settlements at the Great Salt Lake and throughout the Mountain West, from Idaho to California to Mexico. Fillmore was the territorial capital between 1850 and 1856. Young called their vast territory "Deseret," a word Joseph Smith had taught meant honeybee. The work of bees provided a metaphor for the cooperative labor necessary for the Mormons' pioneer society to survive.By the order of the Council of Twelve Apostles, William Phelps had purchased a printing press for Deseret, and Howard Egan brought the equipment and supplies in a yoke of wagons in 1849. With this press, Deseret printed its first currency, made possible by the participation of many Mormons in the first year of the gold rush in California. Young and the Mormon political leaders also used the press to print a territorial constitution and publish the earliest laws.Just a year later, in 1850, territorial Secretary of State Willard Richards wrote the prospectus for what he called the Deseret News, the first newspaper of the territory, and published the first issue on June 15. "If Brigham Young was the Washington of Deseret's pioneers," Wendell Ashton writes, "William Richards was the Franklin." Richards' masthead proclaimed "Truth and Liberty" as the values of his paper. His shop was located in the mint building in Great Salt Lake City, even though the capital was at Fillmore until 1856.When Richards died in 1854, Young instructed Albert Carrington to assume the position of editor. In the mid-1850s, conflict between Deseret/Utah and the U.S. government intensified, based in part on mainstream opposition to the Mormon practice of plural marriage (polygamy).In 1857, the U.S. government sent military personnel under future Confederate general Albert S. Johnston-the "Utah Expedition"-to take down Brigham Young, end Mormon rule, and install Alfred Cumming as the new territorial governor. That year, Mormon militia and Paiute Indians killed 120 immigrants from Arkansas in what has become known as the Mountain Meadows Massacre. Johnston and Young reached an accord whereby Cumming became territorial governor but Young retained de facto power over the territory.ReferencesAshton, Wendell J.

        Mikrogeologie. Das Erden und Felsen schaffende Wirken des unsichtbar kleinen selbständigen Lebens auf der Erde.

      . Leipzig, Leopold Voss, 1854. Folio (44.9 x 32.8 cm), front wrapper pasted on first blank, half-title, title page, dedication leaf, pp. [viii]-xxviii, [1]-374, half-title (to the plates), pp. [1]-31 (index), 41 fine, partly tinted and hand-coloured engraved plates (tissue-guarded) with (multiple) explanatory text leaves. Contemporary half calf over marbled boards. Gilt lines and title on spine. Marbled endpapers.* A massive work. Weighing over 6.3 kg (1 stone) and sold for the majestic sum of 72 Thaler, it deals with the smallest of all plants and animals, which are the building stones (or, rather, grains) of many mountain ranges. The fine plates, made with the aid of a microscope, mainly show diatoms, radiolarians, and foraminifers in an endless variety, but also a few small mollusks, serpulorbids and, for instance, living tardigrades. Christian Gottfried Ehrenberg (1795-1876) combined a near unsurpassed knowledge of zoology, comparative anatomy, geology, palaeontology and microscopy. Although perhaps better known for his work with Wilhelm Hemprich on the fauna of the Middle East and northeastern Africa, this actually is his most important work. Here, he showed that many rock types actually consist of nothing but the skeletons of unicellular microorganisms. This made him the father of - as the title of this work reads - micro-geology. "Mikrogeologie", however, also contains a wealth of information on micro-organisms in soil, fresh water and seawater from all over the globe. The additional first title page, pasted on the 2nd blank, is probably a cut out of the original (yellow) wrapper. Scattered light foxing to the text, plates clean. Board edges rubbed, otherwise a fine copy of this very rare work. Nissen ZBI, 1245; Ward & Carozzi 724-725 (text and atlas apart)..

        Aulacoramphus Cataneorhynchus [The Chestnut Groove-bill Toucanet]

      [London: by the Author, 1854. A fine image from the expanded second edition of John Gould's "A Monograph of the Ramphastidae, or Family of Toucans." "The range of this subspecies extends from the Panama Canal southwards to north Colombia and Venezuela. It differs from R. s. sulfuratus in only one or two details: the bill is about a third shorter, squat and in some birds the red on the tip is less conspicuous; the red band below the yellow breast is broader...They roost with their bills hidden under their feathers and their tails flat over their backs. They utter strange shrill cries like a piglet screaming, but only when they feel threatened." (A. Rutgers, Birds of South America , 1972, p.149) The toucan family is limited to Mexico, Central and South America, and some West Indian islands. The first time that any member of the family was described was by Gonzalo Fernandez de Oviedo y Valdes in his "de la natural hystoria de las Indias." (Toledo, 1526, chapter 42) In 1555 Pierre Belon included an illustration of its beak in his "L'Histoire de la nature des oyseaux." (Paris, 1555, p. 184) Andre Thevet first used the name 'Toucan' with a long description, and a woodcut of a whole bird, in his "Singularitez de la France" (Paris, 1555, pp.88-90). The Latin name "Burhynchus" or "Ramphestes" (in reference to the size of the beak) was suggested by Conrad Gesner ("Icones Avium", 1560, p.130), and Linnaeus later adopted Aldrovandus' corrupted form of the latter ("Ramphastos"), which is how the family was still recognized at the time of the publication of the present image. The first edition of Gould's work, published in 1833-1835, represented the first concerted attempt to produce a monograph on the family. The present image is from the second expanded edition, which Gould considered to be a completely separate work: the plates were all re-drawn and the text re-written. Cf. Anker 170; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p. 101; cf. Nissen IVB 378; cf. Sauer 3; cf. Wood, p. 364; cf. Zimmer, p. 252. Hand-coloured lithograph by John Gould and H. C. Richter, printed by Hullmandel & Walton. Wove paper. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling.

        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]

        CENTRAL ROUTE TO THE PACIFIC, FROM THE VALLEY OF THE MISSISSIPPI TO CALIFORNIA: JOURNAL OF THE EXPEDITION OF E.F. BEALE.IN 1853.

      Philadelphia. 1854. - 136pp. plus thirteen handsome lithographed plates (some tinted) and 46pp. of ads, and a folding map. Half title. Original cloth, stamped in blind. Cloth faded, neatly rebacked with original spine laid down. Map neatly backed by lightweight linen. Small tear in lower edge of front free endpaper. An occasional light fox mark, but quite clean internally. Very good. In a cloth slipcase. This copy bears the ownership signature of John Russell Bartlett on the titlepage. Bartlett was a bookseller in New York in the 1830s and 1840s, and then was appointed to survey the boundary between the United States and Mexico in the early 1850s. He published his own PERSONAL NARRATIVE., describing his experiences in the West in 1854, and went on to become Secretary of State of Rhode Island, and produced valuable bibliographies relating to that state and the private library of John Carter Brown. The present copy of Heap's work is odd for having forty- six pages of advertisements at the end, more than the usual complement of thirty-two. E.F. Beale and Gwin Heap were greatly influenced by Senator Benton in their choice of a route across Colorado and Nevada. The party travelled from Westport (Kansas City) southwest on the Santa Fe trail to Bent's Fort, then to the short-lived Fort Massachusetts, the Rio Grande Valley, the Grand River, and then to the Uncompahgre. They returned to Taos for supplies, and then continued southwest via Utah to California. The map, which is present here, was issued with only a few copies. Wheat lauds the map and spends several pages discussing the journey, saying that it has received less attention than it deserves. He notes that it is the earliest published map to show the middle Rocky Mountain region, through what is now southern Colorado, the first to depict several streams and rivers, and the first attempt to chart a route through Death Valley. This book is one of the first detailed examinations of the "Central Route" from Missouri to the Pacific, and a basic piece of Western Americana. COWAN, p.273. HOWES H378, "b." MINTZ 562. SABIN 31175.

      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.

In 1844 he was secretary to the physiological section of the British Association, and in 1845 he was awarded the Fothergillian gold medal of the Royal Humane Society for his essay on asphyxia. In 1848 he was appointed assistant surgeon at University College hospital, and in 1850 became full surgeon and professor of surgery, his lectures and clinical teaching being much admired. In June, 1876 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. His Science and Art of Surgery (1853) went through many editions, the above being its second. The later 1860 edition was the most commonly distributed publication used by Civil War medics. This comprehensive surgical manual was extremely popular in its time and the years to follow.
