[Broadside Anti-Catholic ]
[Washington, TX: Democratic Party?], 1855. Printed broadside, 15 7/8 x 6 1/2 inches, employing several sizes and styles of type, including italics. Of particular interest to those offering the warning against the Know Nothings are these two resolutions: "Resolved, That it shall be the duty of the G. Secretary to inform all the Subordinate Councils throughout the State, of the nominations here made for all offices, and that it shall be made the duty of each such Subordinate Council to appoint a committee of vigilance, consisting of five members, whose object it shall be to advance the principles of our order generally, and especially to secure the election of our entire ticket here made," and "Resolved, That each such council shall appoint an elector for its county, to defend our principles when necessary, and advance the names and represent the interests of our candidates." Also criticized in the broadside is David C. Dickson (1818-1880) who ran on the 1853 Democratic Party and was elected and served as Lt. Governor of Texas with Governor Elisha M. Pease, but left the Democrats in 1855, as indicated here ("What will the State Times now have to say of the 'STERLING DEMOCRAT, DAVID C. DICKSON?'"), to accept the 1855 nomination for governor from the Know Nothings (he was defeated by Pease). Not in Winkler/Friend. Not recorded on OCLC. Rather uniformly foxed, small circle tidelines in margin, small hole in center (affecting three letters); still a very good copy of a rare Texas broadside concerning the Know Nothings. "The antiforeign, anti-Catholic secret socie … [Click Below for Full Description]

Abraham Lincoln
1855. This famous, oft-quoted letter, written early in the War to his Treasury Secretary, is a vivid and rare demonstration of emotion and strong loyalty of Lincoln “There is an office in your department, called the ‘Commissioner of Customs… I will be much obliged if you agree for me to appoint Mr. Sargent to this place.” Lewis Clephane was the manager of the “Washington Era”, an anti-slavery newspaper courageously operating in the nation’s capital at a time when it was not popular to take that stand there. Harriet Beecher Stowe was one of its contributors. She wrote what became “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” at his request, after he asked for a story to serialize in his newspaper. In 1855 he and four other colleagues formed a group called the Republican Association of Washington, and sent forth the call for the formation of the Republican Party. The next year, he also put forth the call for the first Republican National Convention and served on its executive committee. Clephane campaigned for Lincoln in 1860, and in fact was president of the Washington Wide-Awakes. After Lincoln was elected, he changed the name of his paper to the Washington Republican. For his many services, and his political strength and support in the capital, the new President felt obliged to offer Clephane a federal position in the city, and settled on the postmastership.Nathan Sargent was a Whig who had served as sergeant at arms of the House of Representatives during Lincoln's term in Congress from 1847-9, and was then Register of the U.S. Treasury. The two were friendly at the time, and re … [Click Below for Full Description]

Presented as question-and-answer with named eye witnesses, Woodham-Smith marked salient points with light pencil crosses, usually referring to atrocious conditions, lack of equipment, lack of food and inadequate medical care. Pp Vol I: 4 & IV, 729; Vol II: IV, 516 & IV, 360. Appendices with tables and charts of supplies, personnel etc. A wonderful association copy and important historical document.

"Im umfangreichen Oeuvre Virchows, wie es in Schwalbes Bibliographie und von L. J. Rather dokumentiert ist, gibt es sonst nur wenige Arbeiten, die die Dermatohistopathologie berühren. Besonders beschäftigt ihn die Pathologie der Nägel, die er in der 2. Vorlesung seiner Zellularpathologie abhandelt. Bekanntlich geht auf Virchow der Terminus "Mykosen" zurück. In seiner berühmten Arbeit über die beim Menschen vorkommenden pflanzlichen Parasiten bespricht er nicht nur die Lungenaspergillose, sondern auch die Pilzkrankheit der Nägel, die "Onychomykosis"."

FISHBOURNE, Edmund Gardiner.
London, Seeley, Jackson, and Halliday, 1855. 8vo. Original red publisher's cloth, spine lettered in gilt, image of a Chinese blocked in black underneath, covers ornamented in gilt; pp. ix, 441, [4 advertisements], folding map with route in red hand-colouring; apart from light occasional spotting. internally a very good copy in the rarely seen publisher's binding; provenance: Henry Birkbeck's booklate inside front cover. First edition of a very rare and important work on the Tai Ping Rebellion, written by the commander of the ship Hermes, stationed in China, whilst the events were unfolding. Fishbourne witnessed the Tai Ping Rebellion, the capture of Nanking in 1853 by the insurgents as their capital, and the establishment of Hung Siu-ts'tüan as first emperor. 'Under the Taipings, the Chinese language was simplified, and equality between men and women was decreed. All property was to be held in common, and equal distribution of the land according to a primitive form of communism was planned. Some Western-educated Taiping leaders even proposed the development of industry and the building of a Taiping democracy. The Qing dynasty was so weakened by the rebellion that it never again was able to establish an effective hold over the country. Both the Chinese communists and the Chinese Nationalists trace their origin to the Taipings' (Encyclopaedia Britannica). Cordier, Sinica, p. 647.

GOSSE, Louis-André
Paris, J.B. Baillière, 1855. ______ Format : In-8. Collation : IV, 159 pp., 7 planches h.-t. Reliure : Demi-veau brun, dos à nerfs orné. (Reliure de l'époque.). ____ Première édition, illustrée par 7 planches hors-texte. Envoi de l'auteur au pasteur Martin Paschoud sur la page de titre. Deux corrections à la plume de la main de l'auteur dans le texte. Cet ouvrage, qui mêle médecine et ethnologie, est une intéressante étude sur les déformation volontaires du crâne des nourrissons à travers le monde - leurs buts, leurs modalités et leurs conséquences. Il nous apprend que cette pratique était très répandue dans le Sud-Ouest de la France, et particulièrement dans la région de Toulouse. Louis-André Gosse, médecin genevois, a été un des premiers à s'intéresser aux questions d'hygiène dans le traitement de la maladie, et à la médecine pénitentiaire. Député libéral, il a tenté en 1830, sans succès, de faire abolir les dispositions de 1816 interdisant aux juifs la citoyenneté genevoise. Tiré à part des "Annales d'hygiène publique et de médecine légale". Charnière fendillée sur 4 cm. Très bel exemplaire. *-------* On the voluntary deformation of the skull of infants around the world. With 7 plates.

PENNSYLVANIA RAILROAD].
Philadelphia: T. K. and P. G. Collins, 1855. 8vo., (9 x 5 ¾ inches). Large folding frontispiece map, original hand coloring in full (unevenly browned). Original publisher's drab printed paper boards (rebacked in cloth). First edition thus. Includes the important "Map of the Pennsylvania Rail Road from Harrisburg to Pittsburg; and of the Columbia & Lancaster & Harrisburg R.Rs. from Philadelphia to Harrisburg 1855. H. Haupt, Chf. Eng. J.P. & J. Lesley, Jr. Topographers." Founded in 1846, the Pennsylvania Railroad became one of the largest railroads in United States history, in its heyday managing a budget larger than that of the government. This slim volume highlights the importance of Pennsylvania, and in particular the Pennsylvania Railroad, in connecting the eastern seaboard with the rapidly expanding territories to the West: "The Pennsylvania Railroad is a very important link in the chain which binds, by a direct connection, the eastern or Atlantic cities with those situated on the Ohio and Mississippi. Taking Boston and New York as points of departure for the west, say for Cincinnati, as a central point, the traveller saves in distance, in time, and in expense, one day's journey by this road. If he wish to approach any city in the west by a direct line from these points, he must go through the territory of Pennsylvania" (p. 29). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
