        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>

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."

        MANUAL OF THE ART OF BOOKBINDING CONTAINING FULL INSTRUCTIONS IN THE DIFFERENT BRANCHES OF FORWARDING, GILDING AND FINISHING. Also, the Art of Marbling Book-Edges and Paper, the Whole Designed for the Practical Workman, the Amateur, and the Book-collector.|A

      Philadelphia: Henry Carey Baird, 1856. original blind stamped brown cloth with title and author in gilt on spine. Bookbinding. 8vo. original blind stamped brown cloth with title and author in gilt on spine. 318, (2), 18 pages. First edition of the first American bookbinding manual. (Mejer 1950; Appleton p.83; Brenni no.39 - for first edition). Contains 12 plates of bindings and 7 samples of marbled paper in addition to the illustrations in the text. James Nicholson (1820-1901) was born in St. Louis, but lived most of his life in Philadelphia. He founded the bookbinding firm of Pawson & Nicholson, in Philadelphia, in 1848, and was well qualified to write a practical manual on bookbinding. Indeed, this was the first practical manual written in this country. The book reproduces the specimens of rolls and hand-stamps produced by the early American bookbinder tool makers, Gaskill, Cooper and Fry. The section on marbling (pages 83-130) reprints the entire text of Charles Woolnough&#39;s manual of 1853. The marbled specimens were executed by Charles Williams of Philadelphia. Scarce book in first edition. Binding has been excellently recased with the original blind stamped brown cloth. A gorgeous copy.

        Lastrea dilatata glandulosa [Broad Prickly-toothed Buckler Fern]

      London: Bradbury & Evans, 1856. Colour nature-printed engraving. Very good condition. A beautiful nature-printed plate from Moore&#39;s "The Ferns of Great Britain and Ireland". Moore&#39;s important work on nature printing was one of the first of the genre printed in England. The beautifully executed plates were produced under the direction of Henry Bradbury, England&#39;s first nature printer, and are considered to be among the finest pieces of nature printing ever completed. The plates were produced "... by passing the plant, under pressure, between a plate of soft lead from which an electrotype could be made" (Blunt). As a result, they recorded the smallest details of flowers and the finest venations of leaves. Bradbury, whose father was of the publishing house Bradbury & Evans, studied at the Imperial Printing Office in Vienna. His interest in printing extended to "... the production of bank notes and the security of paper money, on which he discoursed at the Royal Institute" (DNB) and to the history of printing. He had many ideas for lavish and extensive works, including nature-printed books on fungi and trees and a work on the graphic arts of the nineteenth century, but none of these were ever realised. He died in 1860 at the age of twenty-nine. Cf. Nissen BBI 1400; cf. Stafleu and Cowan TL2 6275; cf. DeBelder 237; cf. Cave and Wakeman 25; cf. Fischer 89; cf. Hofer Bequest 74n.
