Green, Horace, M.D
Edward P. Allen, 1855. First separate edition, (the text appeared in January 1856 in the Transactions of the American Medical Association); 8vo, pp. 42, [6]; original printed green wrappers (dated 1856); very good. Green was the first American physician to specialize in diseases of the throat, and his 1846 publication, Treatise on Diseases of the Air Passages, was attacked for its assertions that topical medication could be introduced into the throat by means of a probang. "In pointing out ... the value of applying solutions of silver nitrate locally in catarrhal inflammation of the pharynx and larynx he made a fundamental contribution" (DAB). Listed in OCLC but without any locations; a defective copy is at NLM (without a title page). Cordasco notes only an 1856 edition.

TROLLOPE, Anthony.
London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans., 1855. London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans.,, 1855. Presented by the Publishers Octavo. First state binding of pale brown grained cloth running horizontally, titles in gilt to spine, boards blocked with decorative frame in blind, brick red endpapers printed in black with publisher's adverts (Sadleir's Variety B; one of three, with no precedence), binder's ticket of Westley's & Co to rear pastedown. Housed in custom pale pink cloth clamshell box with titles in gilt to paper spine label. 24 pp. of publisher's advertisements at end, dated September 1854. A hint of wear, small stain to spine, the binding otherwise notably unfaded, hinges cracked but firm, internally fresh. A near-fine copy. First edition, first issue, presentation copy with "Presented by the Publishers" medallion stamped in blind on the title page. The Warden is the first of Trollope's Barchester novels. Conceived one summer evening in 1852 while Trollope wandered the grounds of Salisbury Catheral, the book was slow in the making and did not appear until Christmas 1854. The little it earned him at first inspired Trollope's memorable complaint that, "as regarded remuneration for the time, stone-breaking would have done better", but it had critical success and spurred him on to remarkable productivity and clarity of comic vision. One thousand copies were printed, but Sadleir notes that between 300 and 400 copies were disposed of, probably pulped, and "Now [in 1928], of course, The Warden is rare" (p. 262). Sadleir, Trollope 4.

[Women's Activism] [Townsend, Mira Sharpless]
Philadelphia: John Duross, 1855. First edition. Near Fine. Original publisher's cloth binding embossed in blind with gilt to spine. A tight, square copy with sunning to the spine. Scattered foxing to preliminaries, with remainder of text block surprisingly clean and bright. Early ownership inscription to the front endpaper reveals this to be a family-owned copy, passed down from the author Mira Sharpless Townsend: "The poetry and full contents of this book was written by my great grandmother Mira Sharpless Townsend who was the founder of the Rosine Association (Home -- as it was called). Claire Spenser Grubb." A scarce title with an important association to the founder of a key organization aiding women gain educational and employment opportunity after escaping the sex trade. Nineteenth century Philadelphia was a hotbed of reform, giving women a range of opportunities of civic and political involvement. The Rosine Association emerged out of this space -- and it was a direct response to problems in the existing Magdalen Society movement. The Magdalen Societies, named for the reformed prostitute in Jesus' retinue, aimed to provide "fallen" women with moral guidance and economic security; but their harsh emphasis on Biblical training and penance, and their rigid schedule of daily domestic work sat poorly with some. Thus, out of a private meeting at a house on Cherry Street in 1847, the Rosine Association was founded. "The new association took a different tack from the existing Magdalen Societies, both because its founders objected to the latter's supervision by men and be … [Click Below for Full Description]

Seguin: Printed at the Office of the Texan Mercury, 1855. 21,[2]pp. Original printed yellow wrappers, stitched. Minor edge wear and toning, spine partially split. Two leaves with short tears in upper margin, text tanned. Still, a very good copy. A rare and early Seguin imprint containing the proceedings of the Knights Templar annual convention in Huntsville for the year 1855, one of the earliest annual convocations of the group. The work lists the participants and the Grand Master's Address reminiscing about the "glorious results" that had their beginnings in "the month of December, 1835, at the incipiency of our revolution, or of the revolution which resulted in separating Texas from Mexico." The text reports the activities of the subordinate encampments, and includes lists of membership for each. The Knights Templar in Texas are related to the Masonic order. Scarce, with OCLC reporting just ten copies in institutions, almost all in Texas. WINKLER 569. OCLC 19694020.

Figueroa, Jose
San Francisco: Herald Office, 1855. 104,[1]pp. Contemporary purple sheep, tooled in gilt, title lettered in gilt on front board. Minor rubbing, mostly to the spine. Very clean internally. Near fine. The scarce first English-language edition of Figueroa's defense of his conduct in a California colonization plan, following the extremely rare first edition of 1835, which was the first book-length imprint from Agustin Zamorano's pioneer California press. This copy is bound in contemporary purple sheep, as is often found; other copies are known in printed wrappers. Hijar and Padres planned an ambitious project of colonizing California in the early 1830s, which brought to California many families who played a prominent role in the development of the province. The Mexican government secularized the missions in 1833, and the expectation was that the families would take possession of the mission lands. Hijar and Padres themselves expected to be given governmental positions of importance. Orders from Mexico countermanded the promises, and Figueroa, governor of California, refused to hand over the lands, for which he was criticized. This edition is quite rare, and Howes affords it a "c" rating. COWAN, p.210. GRAFF 1320. GREENWOOD 562. HOWES F122, "c." JONES 1330. SABIN 98728. STREETER SALE 2784. ZAMORANO 80, 37 (note).

Humboldt, Alexander von, Naturforscher, Weltreisender (1769-1859)
Wohl, Potsdam, 1855. 1 S. Quer-kl. 8vo. In der Angelegenheit der Bezahlung von Balduin Möllhausens Zeichnungen aus Amerika. "H Möllhausen hatte gar nicht die Absicht gehabt, irgend einen Gewinn von den Zeichnungen zu ziehen, die er seiner Majestät verehrte. Der König hatte ihm vor 2 Jahren bei seiner Abreise nach den V. St., ein gnädiges Geschenk von 50 Fr. d'or gemacht, und sein sehr lebhafter Wunsch war, von der grossen Expedition nach Californien zurückgekehrt, seine Zeichnungen allerunterthänigst als kleinen Beweis seiner Dankbarkeit zu geben. Soll ich aber (wie Se. Majestät befohlen haben) etwas numerisch bestimmtes über den Werth der, so schwer und unter so grossen Gefahren entworfenen Zeichnungen äussern, würde ich jedes Blatt nach Verschiedenheit des einfachen oder complizirteren Gegenstandes zu 2 bis 3 Fr d'or schäzen, den Antilopen Kopf von einer neu entdekten Art 2 Fr d'or". - Mit diversen Verbesserungen und Einschüben. - Leicht fleckig.

(lievi abras.), taglio sup. dorato, pp.nn. 16 (di introduzione) e una straordinaria raccolta di 92 magnifiche tavv. disegnate dal vero da Valentin Carderera e litografate in tinta (9 sono cromolitografie), ciascuna con una o più figure, con testo biografico e descrittivo, in spagnolo e in francese, dello stesso Carderera. <br> Collezionista, archeologo, pittore e scrittore spagnolo, Valentin Carderera y Solano (Huesca 1796 - Madrid 1880) fu un profondo studioso del mondo medioevale e un entusiasta valorizzatore dell’opera di Goya, soprattutto nell’ambito della incisione. Unendo l’interesse archeologico per i cimeli del passato e le più moderne tecniche di stampa, l’artista ci mostra con la sua eccezionale raccolta una galleria di uomini e donne illustri della storia spagnola. Con i suoi disegni di re, regine, religiosi, capitani e scrittori, "l’Iconografia espanola" rende omaggio alle figure più incisive di certa storia patria che Carderera e i suoi contemporanei contruibuirono a costruire. <br> La collezione - considerata il suo capolavoro - presenta anche statue, mausolei, sepolcri e monumenti, armi, armature e i più curiosi costumi che coprono un lasso di tempo di sette secoli, dall’XI al XVII.

GRAY, A. B.
[Government Printing Office] [1855], [Washington D.C.]. First edition. Octavo. [1] 2-50, two folded maps. Errata leaf tipped in. Complete. Original half black roan over marbled boards, gilt spine lettering. Spine expertly and invisibly restored retaining original lettering, largest map with a professionally repaired tear along the bottom blank margin, some expected scattered foxing. Overall, a very good copy of an important book that is rarely seen.This is a crucial report concerning the final shape of the United States, including the initial difficulties over the proper location of El Paso. The maps show the definitive boundaries as established by all the treaties with Mexico and are far more important than the text. The maps are: "That Part of Disturnell's Treaty Map in the Vicinity of the Rio Grande and Southern Boundary of New Mexico" and "Map of that Portion of the Boundary between the United States and Mexico." With the bookplate of George Washington Brackenridge and the signature of John Thomas Brackenridge. G. W. Brackenridge was a Texas businessman and philanthropist with a particular focus on expanding educational opportunities for women and minorities. He was loyal to the Union, and made his initial fortune through war profiteering, evading the Confederate States' cotton export ban. His brother John Thomas Brackenridge served in the Confederate Army and went on to become the president of First National Bank of Austin after the war.

Hand-coloured lithograph game with a panel containing the rules [43 � 54.5 cm.], folding into decorative boards (22.5 x 20 cm.] the upper cover with a hand coloured lithograph label, lightly dust-soiled, but not detracting from this being a very appealing example.

The game carries a delightful hand coloured picture of a goose, having the usual 63 circles within its outline marked with penalties or benefits. Whitehouse p. 69. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Bronson, George Whitefield
Boston: Damrell & Moore, printers, 1855. 96pp., including five wood-engraved illustrations (three full-page). 12mo. Original pictorial front wrapper, with the rear wrapper and backstrip supplied in matching modern paper. Expert repairs to closed tear in margin of final leaf and two other text leaves. Good. The first edition of this very rare work describing an 1851 Atlantic whaling voyage as a whaleman on the 250-ton bark Aerial, Charles G. Pettey, captain. Bronson relates the voyage in the form of daily journal entries, and he includes much on the rudiments of whaling, as well as shipboard life, including the flogging of a sailor. Starting from Mount Hope Bay, the Aerial touched on Bristol and New Bedford, before passing the Montauk light and heading out into the North Atlantic in search of fin- back, sperm, and right whales. The Aerial visited the whaling grounds of the Azores, the Cape Verde Islands, and Tristan de Acunha, taking time to call in at St. Helena where a journey was made to Napoleon's tomb. The return voyage was via the east coast of South America, the Lesser Antilles, St. Thomas, and Puerto Rico. One full-page illustration shows a whale staving the deck of a ship and another shows a group of frightened whalers in a small boat battling a massive whale with their harpoons. Goodspeed's described this work as "scarce" in 1937. It does not seem to have been noted by any of the standard bibliographies. OCLC locates just four copies, at the American Antiquarian Society, New Bedford Whaling Museum, the SAILS Library Network, and Princeton University. A truly … [Click Below for Full Description]

Elisabeth ("Sisi"), Empress of Austria (1837-1898).
1855. Folio. ½ p. A receipt for the Imperial Court's Disbursements Bureau: confirms having received her monthly apanage of 8333 guilders and 20 kreuzers (her allowance for November 1855 out of a guaranteed yearly "Spenadelgeld" of 100,000 guilders). These funds, essentially the Empress's allowance for all her private expenditures, had formed an explicit part of the marriage contract. This is a particularly early example, signed but one and a half years after her wedding with Emperor Franz Joseph. - Folded; archival notes. Very rare: the records of the Court's Disbursements Bureau were discarded in 1923.
