        The Landscape Album

      New York: Leavitt and Allen. (1856-1861). Friendship book. Octavo. Full red decorated morocco, all edges gilt. Illustrated with black and white prints of landscapes. Some foxing, one page loose, covers worn with part of spine missing. Owned by Mary Low, this friendship book (sort of like a school yearbook) is inscribed by over forty people, with poems, brief messages of friendship, or religious verse. Some of the people who wrote in the book were Low's family and friends. A majority were her fellow students at the Ladies Collegiate Institute, a short-lived, all-female college in Worcester, Massachusetts. The president of the institute, Werden Reynolds (elected in 1859) also signed the book. The Ladies Collegiate Institute was incorporated in 1854 and opened in 1856. It was located in Davis Hall, which was built in 1852 by the architect Elbridge Boyden, who would later design Worcester's St. Paul's Cathedral. From 1852 to 1854, the building housed the Worcester Medical College. In 1855, the Ladies Collegiate Institute took over the property, only to close in 1860-1861. A nice souvenir of a short-lived enterprise, one of the early educational institutions dedicated to women's higher learning. .

        Jefferson Davis, as Secretary of War, requires officers to pay their enlisted servants - an ironic piece in light of the nature of Davis' personal servants

      "Letter Signed, ""Jeffer: Davis,"" as Secretary of War, 1 page, 7.5"" x 9.75"", Washington, July 2, 1856, to Lt. Horatio Gates Gibson at the Presidio in San Francisco. Light horizontal mailing creases, else very fine condition.""Your letter of January 26 was duly received, claiming that the per diem allowed to soldiers serving in California by the Act of Sept 28 - 1850- would be taken as forming part of the 'pay' of the soldier in computing the commutation allowed for officer[']s servant. In reply I have to say that this question was raised soon after the passage of the Act and decided against the claim upon grounds which appear to me to be sound and the construction then given to the Act cannot now be disturbed."" Horatio Gates Gibson, a Maryland native, graduated from West Point in 1843 and served in the 3rd U.S. Artillery through the start of the Civil War. As captain in the 3rd U.S. Artillery, Gibson served with distinction at Williamsburg and at Antietam, for which he was brevetted Major and Lieutenant Colonel respectively. In 1863, he became Colonel of the 2nd Ohio Heavy Artillery, serving with that regiment until the end of the war, whereupon he returned to the 3rd U.S. Artillery (as a Major). He remained with the 3rd U.S. Artillery until his retirement as a full Colonel in 1891. "

        Chester A. Arthur annotated book: President, and apparent poet, adds a verse to conclude Whittier's poem, "Maud Muller"

      "Autograph Manuscript, accomplished in pencil on page 12 of an illustrated version of John G. Whittier's 1856 poem, Maud Muller (Boston: Ticknor and Fields, 1867), 8vo, 12pages plus illustrations by W. J. Hennessey. Bound in tooled leather boards and gilt titled spine. With an additional pencil notation on the blank front flyleaf by Chester A. Arthur II, who identifies the added manuscript lines as in the hand of his father. Boards and spine heavily rubbed, spine cracked and blank marbled endpaper loose, light soiling to a few pages which bear a crease at the upper right corner. Arthur, deeply moved by Whitter's poem of a missed opportunity for true love, adds his own spin on the maiden and the judge: ""No, blame them both, & blame us all,Who give to our hearts, and unworthy thrall!The unhappy maiden's married life,The Judge's vow to his cold, proud wife,Tarnished the sweet hope buried for years,And quenched dear memories in tears,And the angel who rolleth the stone away,Will find but ashes, where once it lay!"" Chester Arthur's son and namesake, writing in pencil on the front flyleaf, identifies the poem as that of his father: ""The lines written in pencil on the last page are my father's - Chester A. Arthur. C.A.A. 2nd."" A most touching conclusion by Arthur to Whittier's verse. Perhaps Arthur shared a similar experience. Sadly, soon before his death in 1886, he ordered that most of his personal papers be burned. If there was evidence of a missed opportunity for romance, we will probably never know. "

Kilpatrick became law partners in Pontotoc, Mississippi, in 1853. Miller had been a Mississippi State Representative (1841-1843) and Circuit Judge (1845-1853). In the Civil War, he commanded the Pontotoc Minute Men (Company G, 2nd Mississippi Infantry Regiment) from January 1861 until April 1862 and the 42nd Mississippi Infantry Regiment from May 1862 until July 3, 1863, when he was mortally wounded during the Battle of Gettysburg in Pickett?s Charge.

Hitchings who purchased the woman is at this time in Texas and as the parties he purchased of is not known to me ... We had the woman in hand about four months before we sold her to Lowry and during that time, she never complained of being sick one moment, and I have no doubt but we will be enabled to prove the woman to be sound. If you know a Lawyer at Crawfordsville I wish you to get him to investigate the soundness of the woman from the time we sold her to Lowry up to the time of her death, for I am fully satisfied that she was sound at the time we made the Sale ... In relation to the negro man we only said to Lowry that he had worked at the carpentry trade, he had the man examined by a carpenter in this Town who said to him from what the man said him self he was of the opinion that he could do good work, but in our Bill of Sale to Lowry, we gave no guarantee that he was a carpenter we only gave a guarantee for soundness and tittle to the negroes...?"

        10 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Berlin, 1856-1858.. Zus. 44 S., 8° u. 4°.. Daß u.a. auch Giacomo Meyerbeer bei einem Soiree des Barons de Santa Quiteria anwesend war (1856) liegt vielleicht auch daran, daß Santa Quiteras Frau Natalie auch als Komponistin einiger Lieder (u.a. Vertonungen von Nikolaus Lenau, Heinrich Heine u. Georg Herwegh) hervorgetreten ist. Von Natalie liegen hier ebenfalls 11 eigenh. Briefe bei (Wien, Berlin u.a., 1856-1862; zus. 33 S., Kl.-8° u. 8°), weiters ein 4-seitiger Briefentwurf m. Unterschrift des Empfängers. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

Light browning at edges.Portrait of Scottish chemist Thomas Graham from Maull and Polyblank's Photographic Portraits of Living Celebrities (1856-60). Graham formulated Graham's law of gas diffusion, which states that the rate of effusion of a gas is inversely proportional to the square root of the mass of its particles. He also discovered dialysis (the process of separating molecules in solution by the difference in their rates of diffusion through a semipermeable membrane), and founded the field of colloid chemistry.

        Election for West Camden. Speeches of Henry Molesworth Oxley and James Macarthur, esquires

      Sydney: Reading and Wellbank, n.d. but, 1856. Octavo, inscribed "from Mr Macarthur" on the title-page, a little toned, a few spots; very good in recent neat brown cloth. Rare pamphlet relating to the first parliament in New South Wales, printing the thoughts of James Macarthur relating to his election as the member for West Camden. Inscribed "from Mr. Macarthur" at the head of the title-page.James Macarthur was born at Elizabeth Farm in Parramatta, schooled in England and Europe, but returned to New South Wales in 1817 to manage the family estates. Astute and considered, he was responsible for many innovations including pursuing his interest in the cultivation of vines, and working to improve the family's merino flock. He worked hard as a politician, and in 1837 published his work on New South Wales, its Present State and Future Prospects. The present work is the most important printed document relating to his brief political career. In 1856 he was elected as one of the founding members of the New South Wales Legislative Assembly, representing Camden. Macarthur served briefly as colonial treasurer, but soon resigned his seat in order to be re-elected for West Camden. In 1859 he retired.This rare pamphlet prints Macarthur's address of June 1856, together with the comments of his primary supporter Henry Molesworth Oxley, the younger son of the explorer John Oxley. Henry Oxley would in turn be elected as member for Camden on Macarthur's retirement.Ferguson knew only his own copy and a second in the Mitchell Library.

        12 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Innsbruck, 1856-1865.. Zus. 30 S., 8° bis 4°.. Moy de Sons trat nach Abschluß seiner Studien in Landshut, Würzburg u. Erlangen als Auditor ins bayer. Kriegsministerium in München ein. Anschließend lehrte er in München als Privatdozent und übte hier seit 1830 eine Advokatur aus. 1832 erhielt er eine Professur für Staatsrecht, Bundesstaatsrecht und Völkerrecht in Würzburg und kehrte 1837 als Professor für Staatsrecht nach München zurück. Hier vollendete er "Das Eherecht der Christen in der morgenländischen und abendländischen Kirche bis zur Zeit Karls des Großen aus den Quellen dargestellt" (1838, Neudruck 1970), das als seine bedeutendste kirchenrechtliche Arbeit gilt (Schulte). Bald folgte das "Lehrbuch des bayerischen Staatsrechts" (4 Bde., 1840-46). In München war Moy de Sons dem Görres-Kreis beigetreten. Im Zusammenhang mit der Lola-Montez-Affäre verlor er 1847 die Professur, ging nach Innsbruck, leitete seit 1849 die "Tiroler Zeitung" und erhielt die Lehrkanzel für Kirchenrecht und Deutsche Reichs- und Rechtsgeschichte. Nach Julius Fickers Übertritt von der Philosophischen in die Juristenfakultät (1863) übernahm dieser die Deutsche Rechtsgeschichte, während Moy de Sons in den letzten Jahren seiner Lehrtätigkeit das Kirchenrecht betreute. Er schrieb die "Grundlinien einer Philosophie des Rechts vom katholischen Standpunkt" (2 Bde., 1854-57) und gründete 1857 das "Archiv für katholisches Kirchenrecht" (1857), das noch heute besteht. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Vgl. ÖBL VI, 395; NDB XVIII, 237f. u. ADB XXII, 420f.

        Anatomical and Surgical Lectures. San Francisco, Dec. 10th, 1856

      1856. Cooper, Elias Samuel (1820-62). Anatomical and surgical lectures. Advertising circular. 1 page plus integral blank. San Francisco, Dec. 10, 1856. 270 x 217 mm. Small embossed stamp with initials "F. J. B." in upper left corner. Fine apart from minor foxing. <p>Elias S. Cooper, founder of California&#39;s (and the West Coast&#39;s) first medical school, came to San Francisco in May 1855 and immediately embarked on an ambitious program to advance the status of medicine in the state. He not only established his own medical and surgical practice in the city (which he promoted vigorously, to the dismay of some of his rivals), but also began his own private medical teaching program (advertised in the present circular), agitated for improvements in the teaching of anatomy, helped to found both the San Francisco County Medico-Chirurgical Association and the California State Medical Society, began publishing the prestigious Pacific Medical and Surgical Journal, and in 1858 founded California&#39;s first medical school, attached to the University of the Pacific. The medical school&#39;s faculty originally consisted of Cooper and six others; Cooper&#39;s nephew, Levi Cooper Lane, joined the faculty in 1859. Cooper served as professor of anatomy and surgery at the school from its inception until his death eight years later. After Cooper&#39;s death the school went into decline, being eclipsed by the foundation in 1864 of the rival Toland Medical College, ancestor of the University of California&#39;s medical school. In 1870 Cooper&#39;s school was revived by Levi Cooper Lane and Henry Gibbons; in 1882 it was renamed Cooper Medical College after its founder. After several decades of independent existence, Cooper Medical College was acquired by Stanford University; Stanford University&#39;s School of Medicine thus can trace its ancestry back to the first medical school founded on the West Coast.</p><p>In the present circular, advertising Cooper&#39;s first course of private lectures in San Francisco, Cooper praised the advantages of San Francisco&#39;s temperate climate "for prosecuting the study of Practical Anatomy and of Operative Surgery. Dissections are conducted here almost free from effluvium the whole year, but particularly from April to October, when the salubrious breezes preserve bodies for any desirable length of time. . . . there is probably no place on the Globe where so long continued mental and physical labor can be endured as in this City; and the health of the student need never suffer by protracted dissections, owing to the salubrious breezes mentioned." Harris, California&#39;s Medical Story, pp. 131-32, 147, 365-69. </p>

      Little Brown, Boston 1856 - 16mo, Gilt lettered and decorated spines. Gilt lettered black spine labels Marbled paper covered boards. Marbled outside edges and end papers. From the Library of Ulysses S. Grant.Both volumes bearing the gift bookplate, incorporating the seal of Boston: "Lieut. Gen. U.S. Grant. From Citizens of Boston. January 1 1866." At the end of Civil War, to show their appreciation of his military service, Boston gave a large collection of literary works to Grant with this bookplate inserted in each volume, and an endorsement of his political career. On January 16, Grant sent his thanks to the committee responsible for raising the funds for the gift: "Yours of the 1st announcing that a collection of books has been sent to me by Gentleman of Boston is received.Through you, permit me to return my thanks The kind expression of confidence conveyed on the note announcing this valuable and substantial present will be preserved by me as possessing an extrinsic value beyond that of goods which can be bought with money." Copies of books bearing these Grant's bookplates are much sought after and quite scarce. Only the second such title we have encountered in 15 years. Two volume set thus two plates.
