Aufl.), also 39 Jahre lang nahm Bardelebens Werk unbestritten den obersten Rang und die Führung unter den deutschen Lehrbüchern der Chirurgie ein. Bardeleben war ein Spezialist auf dem Gebiet der Knochenchirurgie, er war einer der ersten der den Gehgips erfolgreich anwandte, die klinische Visite mit seinen Studenten durchführte und das Listersche Verfahren in Berlin einführte. Zum Studium der Antisepsis war er persönlich zu Lister nach Edinburgh gefahren. Heinrich Adolf Bardeleben (1819-1895) lehrte in Gießen und Greifswald und wurde 1868 als Nachfolger von Jüngken Professor und Leiter der chirurgischen Klinik der Charité in Berlin. "Im Laufe der Fünfziger Jahre errang er jenen weit über Greifswald hinausgehenden Ruf als Operateur, der ihm in den Kriegen der Sechziger-Jahre die Stellung eines konsultierenden Generalarztes der Armee und in der Folge die berufen nach Berlin einbrachte. Bardeleben hat nicht nur im Unterricht im Hohen Grade anregend gewirkt, sondern ist als Lehrer noch besonders hervorragend durch sein Lehrbuch der Chirurgie und Operationslehre hervorgetreten." Hirsch"This book has been of special importance for plastic surgery, since Bardeleben published the fundamental plastic surgery operations of his time with a very careful description of the operating techniques." Gabka & VaubelHirsch I, pp.328-329 Kriegschirurgen Preussens IV (1904), pp.108-135 Brunn, Gesch. d. Chir., p.290 Zeis, Nachtrag Nr. 468

        [Letter]: Women's Suffrage Lectures in Maine

      Ellsworth, Maine, 1857. Near Fine. An 1857 letter from early Maine women's right advocate, Charlotte Hill of Ellsworth, Maine. Folded for mailing, near fine. The letter discusses speaking engagements for a committee on lyceum lectures, specifically an early lecture by Susan B. Anthony: "A committee of ladies self-constituted I grant -- of which I am one, have engaged Susan B. Anthony of Rochester N.Y....of Miss Anthony I know nothing except by reputation." Anthony received $50 for this speaking engagement which was the most she had received for her time to date and it helped propel her lecturing career. Hill was a music teacher by trade. Upon hearing of her ideas of bringing the suffrage movement to the attention of local citizens, many threatened to stop using her services to which she answered, "Very well, I shall maintain my principles and if you break up my classes I can go back to the sea shore and dig clams for a living as I have done before." The lectures were a success and Hill was able to keep both her committee and her teaching career.A wonderful letter and a primary source discussing women's suffrage including the early lectures of Susan B. Anthony.

        6 (5 eigenh.) Briefe m. Unterschrift („Koenig Bey").

      Alexandria u. Wien, 1855-1857. - „[.] Kurz bevor er achtzehn wurde, reiste Nubar nach Ägypten, wo er bei Boghos Bey, der zu diesem Zeitpunkt Handels- und Außenminister war, eine Stelle als Sekretär erhielt. Nach einer achtzehnmonatigen Ausbildung wurde er zum zweiten Sekretär von Muhammad Ali Pascha befördert. 1845 wurde er Erster Sekretär von dessen Adoptivsohn und Erben Ibrahim Pascha, den er auf Reisen durch Europa begleitete. Als Abbas Pascha 1848 Khedive, d.h. Vizekönig von Ägypten, wurde, übernahm er Nubar in seinen Dienst und schickte ihn 1850 als seinen Vermittler nach London, um mit dem ottomanischen Sultan zu verhandeln. Da er erfolgreich war, wurde er zum Bey ernannt. 1853 wurde er für ähnliche Verhandlungen nach Wien geschickt, wo er anschließend bis zum Tod von Abbas im Juli 1854 lebte. Der neue Vizekönig Muhammad Said entließ ihn aus seinem Amt, ernannte ihn aber zwei Jahre später zu seinem Chefsekretär. Zudem übergab er ihm die Verantwortung für die Transportgeschäfte zwischen Ägypten und Indien. In diesem Bereich engagierte sich Nubar hauptsächlich für die Fertigstellung der Eisenbahn zwischen Kairo und Sues. Said entließ ihn noch ein zweites Mal, schickte ihn dann aber wieder nach Wien, bevor er seinen Posten als erster Sekretär wieder zurückerhielt. Nach dem Tod von Said im Januar 1863 wurde Ismail Pascha neuer Khedive. Mit ihm war Nubar befreundet, hatte ihm nach eigenen Aussagen sogar das Leben gerettet. Ismail sandte ihn als Vermittler nach Konstantinopel, wo er den Weg für die Pläne des neuen Vizekönigs ebnen sollte, zu denen unter anderem die Fertigstellung des Sueskanal gehörte. Wegen seiner Erfolge wurde Nubar zum Pascha ernannt. Nubar reiste nach Paris, um Streitigkeiten des französischen Reichs mit Ägypten beizulegen. Nach seiner Rückkehr aus Paris wurde er Ägyptens erster Minister für staatliche Bauvorhaben, eine Abteilung, die er erst aufbauen musste. 1866 wurde er zum Außenminister ernannt. Ab 1867 kam es auf seine Veranlassung zu Verhandlungen zwischen der ägyptischen Regierung und einer Reihe von europäischen Ländern, die 1876 zur Schaffung der Gemischten Gerichtshöfe in Ägypten führten. Ismail hatte das Land durch seine verschwenderische Vorgehensweise an den Rand eines Insolvenz gebracht. Er wurde schließlich von Großbritannien und Frankreich gezwungen, sich die Regierung mit Nubar, Charles Rivers Wilson als Finanzminister und dem Marquis de Blignières als Minister für staatliche Bauvorhaben zu teilen" (Wikipedia). --- 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.

        Scraps from Indian and other journals.

      Cheltenham: printed by R. Edwards 396 High Street. ca. or 1858 1857 - 8vo., caption title, 24pp. excluding several blank leaves, headings printed in red, contemporary crushed red morocco, fully gilt, the sides with extravagant gilt panelling, spine fully gilt with raised bands, all edges gilt, cream silk doublures, a superb, but frustratingly, unsigned, binding, lettered in gilt 'Lady Ford'* on upper cover.> An almost certainly unique privately printed record of mostly Indian press reports, all referring to the work of Lieutenant, later Captain, St. Clair Ford, bound perhaps as a special family keepsake. Loosely retained with this volume are three autograph letters written and signed by Sir Henry Frere, each addressed to Ford and written in terms of friendly intimacy. The reports, here reprinted, derive variously from the Cheltenham Journal> (May 6, 1854), Bombay Gazette> (July 9, 1854, and Dec. 12, 1856), the Sindian> (March, 1856, May 1856, Dec. 1856, April 1857, May 1857 and Dec. 1857), the Annual Report of the Larkhana Municipal Commission,> and the Delhi Gazette> (Jan. 17. 1857). They all refer, always in a positive way, to the work being done in Larkhana, Sind, by St. Clair Ford, who held the post of Deputy Collector and Deputy Magistrate. Ford seems to have been personally responsible for a whole range of improvements in the locality, including new and improved roads, a new bridge over the River Charr, a public garden ('The town and its environs are now neater, more picturesque, and more civilized looking than any in Sind'). One major infrastructure development - a new canal for irrigation and navigation - was called locally the 'Ford Wah'. In an April 1857 issue of the Sindian,> St. Clair Ford's administration of Larkhana was reported in glowing terms. 'Larkhana is an exception to the rule in Sind. It is the only district, Jacobabad excepted, which has shewn any signs of progress; but for these we are indebted to Lieut. Ford, personally, and his Zemindars. Lieut. Ford is one of the very few officers who have worked energetically and intelligently for the improvement of their charge.'. The three A.L.S.s (some 12 closely-written pages) from Sir Henry Frere (i.e. Sir Henry Bartle Frere, 1815-1884), who was the Commissioner of Sind province - and thus Ford's boss - show a relationship of mutual esteem for a junior officer, particularly as Ford, like Frere himself, showed respect for the local Indian population. The letters, dated from Jacobabad on various dates in 1858-59, were written just after the Indian Mutiny. They include this observation, on October 10th 1858: 'You will see by the papers that India is not yet at peace within herself, & you may be assured that within & without her frontier are many elements of strife & bloodshed still ready for mischief. I trust all will tend, through God's grace, to His Glory, but I am sometimes amazed & almost discouraged by the rampant folly I see & hear around.' All three letters were written to Ford when he was home in England on sick leave. * Presumably St.Clair Ford's mother, probably the widow of Sir Francis Ford, 2nd baronet (1787-1839).

        A REPORT OF THE DECISION OF THE SUPREME COURT OF THE UNITED STATES, AND THE OPINIONS OF THE JUDGES THEREOF, IN THE CASE OF DRED SCOTT VS. JOHN F. A. SANDFORD. DECEMBER TERM 1856

      D. Appleton and Company, New York 1857 - Printed wraps lacking the front cover; complete, pages 393-633 [240 pages]. Grolier American 68; Howes S218; Sabin 33240. One of two simultaneous printings, the other in Washington D.C., for which no precedence has been established. The opinion of the court in this case constitutes the contents of this very important document. Dred Scott was a slave who sued for his freedom in 1846 because he lived for a time in free states before returning with his owner to Missouri, a slave state. He won the initial case but lost on appeal and then filed suit in federal court. The Supreme Court, led by Chief Justice Roger B. Taney, voted 7-2 against Scott's appeal, declaring that all blacks, slaves or free, were not and never could become citizens of the United States. The court also declared the 1820 Missouri Compromise unconstitutional, thus permitting slavery in all of the country's territories. This decision was the catalyst of a fierce debate in American society and is often considered to be one of the underlying causes of the start of the Civil War. Paper age toned, stitching a bit loose resulting in several detached pages; front wrapper lacking, rear detached, with some chipping to the edges.

I am now a going to Panola & will come up alone on my return. I enclose to you a note of Jack Moore of Carroll Co. Miss for $1175.00 Given March 13th 1855 & due March 1st 1856 to Pugh Houston & J C Posey. We wish you to bring first at the next term of the Federal Court at Pontotoc. This note was given for a Negro man sold by our agent to Mr Moore, said Negro was the property of Estate of Joseph Thompson decd of Lauderdale Co Alabama; Judge Posey & myself are the Executors of said Estate & reside in Lauderdale Ala.

        Noticias biograficas de la enana alemana Doña Elena Briggs, la muger mas chiquita del mundo

      Havana 1857 - 8vo. 32 pp. The biography of Ellen Suter Briggs, which the booklet asserts was the smallest woman in the world. Briggs was born in Germany in 1821 and immigrated with her father to Ohio in 1830, soon afterward embarking on a career as a touring circus attraction. The Spanish language pamphlet describes her friendship with Major Stevens and Tom Thumb and concludes with several pages of translated press notices from American newspapers. The curious thing about Briggs is that we have been unable to find any record of her career in English or other sources. The pamphlet is manifestly scarce, with no copies turning up on OCLC, Palau or other references. With an inserted photograph of Tom Thumb (Charles Sherwood Stratton) and his wife Lavinia Warren Stratton. Lacking front wrapper, with rear worn. Soiling to the title page. Moderate dampstaining. The bottom corner, final leaf, cut out, with slight loss of text. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Scraps from Indian and other journals.

      [Cheltenham: printed by R. Edwards, 396, High Street. ca. 1857 or 1858]. 8vo., caption title, 24pp. excluding several blank leaves, headings printed in red, contemporary crushed red morocco, fully gilt, the sides with extravagant gilt panelling, spine fully gilt with raised bands, all edges gilt, cream silk doublures, a superb, but frustratingly, unsigned, binding, lettered in gilt 'Lady Ford'* on upper cover.> An almost certainly unique privately printed record of mostly Indian press reports, all referring to the work of Lieutenant, later Captain, St. Clair Ford, bound perhaps as a special family keepsake. Loosely retained with this volume are three autograph letters written and signed by Sir Henry Frere, each addressed to Ford and written in terms of friendly intimacy. The reports, here reprinted, derive variously from the Cheltenham Journal> (May 6, 1854), Bombay Gazette> (July 9, 1854, and Dec. 12, 1856), the Sindian> (March, 1856, May 1856, Dec. 1856, April 1857, May 1857 and Dec. 1857), the Annual Report of the Larkhana Municipal Commission,> and the Delhi Gazette> (Jan. 17. 1857). They all refer, always in a positive way, to the work being done in Larkhana, Sind, by St. Clair Ford, who held the post of Deputy Collector and Deputy Magistrate. Ford seems to have been personally responsible for a whole range of improvements in the locality, including new and improved roads, a new bridge over the River Charr, a public garden ('The town and its environs are now neater, more picturesque, and more civilized looking than any in Sind'). One major infrastructure development - a new canal for irrigation and navigation - was called locally the 'Ford Wah'. In an April 1857 issue of the Sindian,> St. Clair Ford's administration of Larkhana was reported in glowing terms. 'Larkhana is an exception to the rule in Sind. It is the only district, Jacobabad excepted, which has shewn any signs of progress; but for these we are indebted to Lieut. Ford, personally, and his Zemindars. Lieut. Ford is one of the very few officers who have worked energetically and intelligently for the improvement of their charge......'. The three A.L.S.s (some 12 closely-written pages) from Sir Henry Frere (i.e. Sir Henry Bartle Frere, 1815-1884), who was the Commissioner of Sind province - and thus Ford's boss - show a relationship of mutual esteem for a junior officer, particularly as Ford, like Frere himself, showed respect for the local Indian population. The letters, dated from Jacobabad on various dates in 1858-59, were written just after the Indian Mutiny. They include this observation, on October 10th 1858: 'You will see by the papers that India is not yet at peace within herself, & you may be assured that within & without her frontier are many elements of strife & bloodshed still ready for mischief. I trust all will tend, through God's grace, to His Glory, but I am sometimes amazed & almost discouraged by the rampant folly I see & hear around.' All three letters were written to Ford when he was home in England on sick leave. * Presumably St.Clair Ford's mother, probably the widow of Sir Francis Ford, 2nd baronet (1787-1839).

      [London u. Paris], 27. IV. 1857 bzw. o. J. - [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Hofmann ist der Wegbereiter für die Erforschung der Anilinfarbstoffe in England und Deutschland gewesen. Er hat eine Vielzahl wichtiger Umwandlungsmethoden in der organischen Chemie entwickelt und die Deutsche Chemische Gesellschaft gegründet. --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde.

        MANSFIELD PARK.

      First printing of the Railway Library edition. 8vo. (6.4 x 4.2 inches). Finely bound, without half title, in contemporary half black calf. The spine is ruled, decorated and lettered in gilt. Marbled paper on boards. Plain white endpapers. Previous owners neat name and address on the front blank free endpaper. Some rubbing to the spine hinges and board edges but overall this is still an attractive, good quality, early leather binding. Routledge issued all six of Austen's novels, in five books (Northanger Abbey and Persuasion together as usual) in their Railway Library series, starting with Sense and Sensibility and Pride and prejudice in 1852 but waiting five years before issuing the other three books. Austen's works are notoriously difficult to find in any early bindings, whether publishers cloth (or in the case of this volume, coloured paper boards) or, like this volume, bound at the time in leather. Most copies were literally read to bits, resulting in the books needing to be rebound at a later date. ---- Keynes. Jane Austen. A Bibliography. No 108.
