GALTON, Francis.
London: John Murray, 1855. London: John Murray,, 1855. Octavo. Original ribbed cloth, spine lettered gilt, coated endpapers. With numerous woodcut illustrations in the text. Edmonds & Remnants ticket to rear pastedown. Short split at head of front joint, cloth lightly sunned. Bookseller's ticket removed from front pastedown, with an ink ownership inscription; two leaves sprung, else a very good copy. First edition of Francis Galton's guide, "intended as a Manual for all who have to rough it, whether they be explorers, emigrants, missionaries, or soldiers" (Preface). Having inherited a vast fortune on his father's death, Galton spent a year travelling in the Middle East before "undertaking a journey of exploration (at his own expense but under the auspices of the Royal Geographical Society) to South-West Africa - an area which was largely unknown to Europeans. Two books resulted: Tropical South Africa (1852) and The Art of Travel (1855). The first of these was rewarded with a gold medal from the Royal Geographical Society, a fellowship of the Royal Society, and membership of the Athenaeum; the second (a how-to book) was reprinted several times over the next four decades." (ODNB). All manner of advice is given, from where to look for water, to was of bivouacking personal cleanliness, matters of discipline, secreting jewels, milking wild cows and instruments for taking observations and drawing up a map.

Paul B. Du Chaillu
1855. ont> John Murray : London Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition.. The first edition of Paul Du Chaillu's important travel journal showing his experiences in Africa encountering gorillas, illustrated throughout, including with a folding frontispiece, and a folding map. The first edition of this work. This work describes Paul Du Chaillu's discovery and confirmation of the existence of gorillas. He was the first modern European to confirm this, and also to confirm the Pygmy people of Central Africa. This discovery took place on an expedition that Chaillu took to Africa, lasting from 1855 to 1859. Before this, the existence of gorillas to Western scientists was known only by a few skeletons. On this trip, Chaillu brought back dead gorillas to study. 'Exploration and Adventures in Equatorial Africa' discusses his experiences studying, exploring, and travelling in Africa. With a folding plate to the frontispiece, vignette title page, one folding map to the rear, twenty-seven plates, and forty-five in-text engravings. Chaillu is also known for researching the prehistory of Scandinavia, and was also a member of J. M. Barrie's amateur cricket time 'the Allahakbarries'. This work is an octavo. Bookplate to the front pastedown, 'Robert & Maria Travis'. Robert and Maria Travis owned many books on India and the Far East, which was sold at auction by Sotheby's. Collated, complete.

Trial and Conviction of Dr. Stephen T Beale; With the Letters of Chief Justice Lewis, And Judges Black and Woodward, On His Case. Interesting Ether Cases, And the Letters of Prof. Gibson, Prof. Wiltbank, Wm. Badger, Esq., W.L. Hirst, Esq. Rev. Albert Barnes, Dr. Henry Boardman, &c. Philadelphia: T.K. Collins, Jr., 1855. 30 pp. Octavo (9" x 5-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in printed wrappers removed from a volume, rear wrapper lacking. Faint dampstaining to head and lower corner at foot of spine through first half of text block, light soiling to exterior, minor tear and "9" in early hand to front wrapper, light toning to text. * Only edition. This trial account reflects contemporary anxiety about ether, which was used for the first time in 1846. Narcissa Mudge claimed she was raped by her dentist, Dr. Beale while unconscious from ether during a procedure. Beale was convicted. This account of the trial is written by someone who characterizes the dentist as an innocent victim. He argues that Mudge's accusation was based on false memory, a side-effect induced by ether. His case is supported by the testimony concerning the effects of ether by a group of dentists and other authorities. Bibliography of Early American Law 13774.

[Iowa]. [Railroads]
Chicago: Scott & Fulton, 1855. Good.. Broadside, approximately 13.5 x 7 inches. Previously folded. Cloth tape at tope edge verso. A couple of small edge chips. Light dampstaining at lower edge. Slight mat burn; light tanning and foxing. An early, unrecorded broadside advertisement for the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy Railroad, publicizing their newly completed route from Chicago to Burlington, Iowa. The railroad company, formed in 1848, had previously been known as the Chicago and Aurora Railroad, but changed its name in 1855, the year that this broadside was printed, when its lines reached Burlington and Quincy. This advertisement promotes "the only direct route to Burlington, Quincy, Keokuk, Muscatine, Oquawka, Wapello, Fort Des Moines, &c., and the only all rail road route to St. Louis." The newly reorganized railroad was recognized as the Chicago, Burlington, and Quincy in February 1855, and this broadside was published just a month later, necessarily making it one of the earliest advertisements for the venerable railway under that name.

(Ackroyd, 758). Perhaps unsurprisingly, many reviewers reviled the book upon its publication.

SCOTT, Francis Henry.
Madras: 1855. Fine original colour. Dissected and laid on linen in two sections, as issued, marbled paper covers, total 1320 x 990mm, folded into original slipcase. A large and detailed map on a scale of an inch to 24 miles, with the hand colour unusually fresh. Compiled by Scott with assistance from the Grand Trigonometrical Survey of India, the map was drawn up by J.S. Harvey and engraved by J. & C. Walker. In 1853 Major Scott published 'Routes in the Peninsula of India: Comprising the Whole of the Madras', also published in Madras. Its prime motive was ascertaining how far troops could travel in a day on different routes. His work took on great importance during the Indian Rebellion of 1857, only two years after this map was published. In the preface he describes the difficulty of anglicising the names from the multitude of languages, dialects and accents of the subcontinent. He also states that this map had been completed and was about to be sent to England to be engraved.

Beale, Stephen]
T.K. Collins, Jr., Philadelphia, 1855. 30, [2 blanks] pp. Disbound, title page margins toned. Good+. Beale, a dentist, had allegedly raped his female patient after he anesthetized her with ether. The author laments, "If she had first consulted her mother after the supposed outrage had been perpetrated upon her, the disgusting disclosures, which have crimsoned every cheek with shame, would probably never have been made. But, unfortunately, she fell into the hands of those whose zeal outstripped their discretion." The pamphlet summarizes the trial, the jury's verdict [guilty, with a recommendation of mercy], the surprise that the verdict generated, Dr. Beale's stirring Address to the court at his sentencing, the court's imposition of a six-month prison term, and the post-sentencing efforts to vindicate his reputation and spring him from jail. Medical testimony and articles from learned journals are submitted to demonstrate the unreliability of the accuser's description of her experiences while under the influence of ether; and character references from pillars of the community are offered. But the appearance of rumors that Beale had similarly treated other helpless women thwarted these efforts. FIRST EDITION. Cohen 13774. Marke 978. II Harv. Law Cat. 1013. [Attributes: First Edition]

1855. Half plate daguerreotype of eight young women. Approximately 5.5" x 4.25". Patterned leather case with image in an elaborate gilt mat and foliate decorations cut into the plush red velvet facing the image. Spine of the case neatly restored, a little rubbing on the leather, hook and eye closures present and working, case is near fine. Slight tarnish in left margin, a couple of rings on the hand of one woman has been highlighted in gold, a very near fine image. A well-dressed group of eight young women, possibly classmates are seated together. The subjects' dress and the elaborately stamped gold mat seem to indicate a date of the mid-to-late 1850s, while the fancy preserver, seems to confirm that date. Individual daguerreotypes are not really rare, but half plate or larger images of groups, especially of women, are scarce and desirable. This is an attractive image, in especially nice condition.
