        ??????. Sketches by Kitajima T?en. Kitajima T?en funpon

      Collection of five funpon ?? or artists' sketches by Kitajima T?en in ink on Japanese paper. Sheet sizes vary: Sketch of a Chinese Merchant and his Wife. Neat notes on the woman's clothing indicate the colours of her clothes. Small red ink stains. Signed with chop. 53 x 39cm. Sketch of a Dutch Sea Captain. Signed with chop. 24.5 x 23cm. On this sketch the artist has written "shitae ?? [preliminary sketch]” which indicates he intended to produce a painting with using this image in the near future. Sketch of a Chinese Merchant. Some highlights in an ochre coloured ink. 39.5 x 27cm. Signed with chop. Sketch of a Chinese Merchant Reading. 34 x 12cm. Sketch of a Dutchman's Servant. 33.5 x 12.5cm. An interesting collection in good condition. Funpon ?? or artists' sketches were used by Japanese artists as references for future works. As Japanese artists rarely worked from life, artists would collect as many funpon as possible so when called upon to paint a picture of a particular subject they would have images from which to work from, in a manner similar to building a reference library. We have not found a reference to the artist who made these sketches, Kitajima T?en ????. It seems likely he was a minor artist in Nagasaki who had observed the Dutch and Chinese merchants and would likely have received commissions to paint scenes depicting foreigners. These sketches were almost certainly based on earlier Japanese paintings showing Chinese and Dutch merchants. The sketches in this group depict a Dutch Sea Captain and Chinese merchants reflecting the situation in Japan at the time. In the Edo period, only the Dutch and Chinese were allowed to trade with Japan in Nagasaki. The Chinese merchants lived in the Chinese quarter in Nagasaki and had relative freedom to go around the town, whereas the Dutch merchants were confined on a small artificial island called Deshima or Dejima. Due to Japan's isolation from the world at that time Japanese people were especially fascinated by the exotic appearance and culture of foreign people. Pictures of foreigners were always in good demand, and in the late Edo period, especially after Japan opened up to the West in 1858, a lot of prints and paintings depicting foreigners were produced by ukiyo-e artists and traditional painters. .

        [Manuscript Compendium of Biblical Doctrines, Notes on Methodist Episcopal Church Polity and History, and Lectures on Temperance kept by New York Methodist Minister William Laur Tisdale].

      Jordan, New York, June 10th 1858. Very good antiquarian condition. Notebook. Octavo. 8½ x 5½ inches. 144 ruled leaves, partially foliated 1?282 containing approx. 137pp. of ink gall, black, and violet manuscript. Full reddish-brown sheep; gilt ruled spine with raised bands; decorative gilt border on both boards; all edges marbled; Spine faded; lightly rubbed. Suitable for exhibition and research. Interesting American Methodist manuscript notebook, created by a Methodist preacher at the outset of his ministry in New York state, citing contemporary sources, and with much on temperance. The title and ownership inscription "A Compendium of Bible Theology Arranged with Strict reference to Brevity & truth by W. L. Tisdale, Jordan N. Y. June 10th 1858." Just six days earlier, Tisdale had entered into "full connection" with the Northern New York Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church. The present notebook contains his outline notes on basic topics of theology, philosophy, and church history along with a biblical defense of the sacraments of baptism and the eucharist. Tisdale's manuscript notes, as here kept, therefore, would have acted as a helpful digest of church doctrine useful to him in his new ministerial role. William Laur Tisdale was the third son of Ephraim and Mary Monroe Tisdale. Although born in Canada in 1828, William L. Tisdale was descended from John Tisdale (1614-1675) of Taunton, Massachusetts. William emigrated to the United States and in 1851, at Buffalo, New York, he was granted a license to exhort by the Methodist Episcopal Church. He was licensed to preach the following year. Other advancement followed until he was fully admitted by the church on June 4, 1858. For more than 40 years Tisdale preached throughout the Northern New York Conference. In 1857, William married Eunice L. Morehouse and, after her death, married Fanny Davidson in 1872. With them, he had six children. In addition to the Bible, other sources of religious authority cited by Tisdale in his compendium include John Wesley and pioneering American Methodist preacher and author, George Peck. Tisdale's notebook contains extended notes on Peck's book The Scripture Doctrine of Christian Perfection. Tisdale's notes on M[ethodist] E[piscopal] Church Government (page 54 ff.) appear to follow from Methodist minister Abel Stevens? An Essay on Church Polity. The concluding 29 pages of Tisdale's manuscript comprise two lectures promoting Temperance, a topic much approved by Methodists. These concluding lectures, distinctively written in violet ink, may be of Tisdale's own composition, inviting further textual research to confirm this. LITERATURE: Official Minutes and Historical Register, Twenty-Eighth Session of the Northern New York Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, (Boonville NY, 1895). Tisdale, Meet the Tisdales, (Baltimore, 1981).

Gravée sur la demande du Conseil Municipal et suivant arrrêté du 4 avril 1837. De Mr le Comte de Rambuteau, Pair de France Prédet de la Seine. Complétée jusqu'au 31 décembre 1857. Dressée par Achin, gravée par Dormier, Ecritures par Lale, dirigée par Monvoisin. Imprimerie Lemercier, Paris, 1857. 1 carte entoilée de 130 x 92 cm. Carte chromolithographiée par Avril frères. Tracé en couleurs. En haut à gauche : Ville de Paris. Service municipal. Ensemble 2 plans en 5 feuilles sous chemise et étui de l'époque, percaline verte, titre doré « Eaux - Egouts - Bois de Boulogne ». Le premier plan statistique établi sous la direction de l'ingénieur Emmery fut publié en 1839 (avec indication des aqueducs de ceinture, rigoles d'embranchement, conduites maîtresses et branchements, galeries, réservoirs, fontaines etc.) puis régulièrement mis à jour et complété. « (Sous la Monarchie de Juillet) le domaine de l'eau et des égouts fut marqué par le rôle de l'ingénieur Henry-Charles Emmery de Sept-Fontaines (1789-1842). Formé à l'École Polytechnique puis à l'École des Ponts et Chaussées, il fut actif de 1832 à 1839 au sein du service municipal dont il fut nommé « ingénieur en chef directeur » en octobre 1835. À une époque où la ville hésitait à concéder la distribution des eaux, celui-ci, animé de fortes convictions sociales, obtint que cela reste la prérogative de la ville, le seul moyen à ses yeux pour garantir de l'eau à tous. Outre le lancement d'une vaste campagne de travaux, il mit en place une réorganisation du travail visant à coordonner les réseaux d'égout, les conduites d'eau et le tracé des rues ainsi que des enquêtes statistiques et cartographiques, outils indispensables aux ingénieurs pour synchroniser leurs activités. Ainsi il fut le premier à établir une vision transversale de la ville, par le biais d'un travail en commun avec le service du pavé : ce rapprochement eut d'importantes incidences dans la mesure où la question de l'écoulement des eaux - parce qu'il se faisait traditionnelement au centre de la chaussée - fut longtemps un frein à l'établissement des trottoirs. L'action d'Emmery qui instaura des conférences entre les ingénieurs des services des eaux, des égouts et du pavé conduisit en 1848 à la réforme du « service municipal » qui rationalisa de façon extraordinaire l'organistaion des interventions sur les réseaux puisqu'elle réunit le service du pavé à celui des eaux et égouts et établit que les ingénieurs au lieu d'être en charge d'une question (l'eau, les égoûts ou la rue) avaient la responsabilité transversale d'un secteur géographique. »[Alice Thomine-Berrada, Histoire des politiques d'urbanisme à Paris in Livret-annuaire 21 de l' Ecole pratique des hautes études] L'année 1858 du Plan statistique des Eaux manque à la B.N.F. qui possède strictement sous ce même titre les années 1861 et 1868.

        Anatomy Descriptive and Surgical. The drawings by H. V. Carter, M.D. lecturer on anatomy at Saint George's Hospital. The dissections jointly by the author and Dr. Carter.

      London: John W. Parker and Son, 1858 - Royal octavo. Original brown bead-grain cloth neatly rebacked with original spine laid down, sides panelled in blind, brick-red endpapers. From the library of the Lords Elphinstone, with their armorial bookplate and Carberry Tower Library label. A particularly attractive copy, unopened in places, and with the publisher's single advertisement leaf at end. 363 line-drawings in the text. First edition of the medical text which has been more widely used by successive generations of medical students and doctors than any other: "This lasting and monumental work, produced by a young man who dies young, must be compared to the Fabrica of Vesalius, who produced his great work before the age of thirty years" (Heirs to Hippocrates). "The success of the book was not due to an absence of rivals. There were already several texts on anatomy Gray's Anatomy, however, eclipsed all others, partly for its meticulous detail, partly for its emphasis on surgical anatomy, but most of all perhaps for the excellence of the illustrations, based on drawings by H. V. Carter, who assisted Gray with the dissections, and engraved by Messrs Butterworth and Heath with remarkable skill. The design of the book, and the skill with which the illustrations were interpolated in the text, could hardly have been improved" (ODNB). This is a point highlighted by Garrison in his appendix to Ludwig Choulant's History and Bibliography of Anatomic Illustration: "the drawings. are of unusual merit and of great didactic value". Gray (1826/7–1861) himself was "already working on the second edition when he caught smallpox from his nephew, developed the confluent form of the disease, and died at his residence, 8 Wilton Street, Belgrave Square, London, on 12 June 1861, aged thirty-four. It is a measure of Gray's single-minded devotion to anatomy and authorship that Gray's Anatomy continued to be not only an important book of reference but virtually a household phrase" (ibid). Copies in such collectable condition are notably uncommon. Garrison-Morton 418; Heirs to Hippocrates 1914; Norman 939. [Attributes: First Edition]

        An Account of the Mutinies in Oudh, and of the Siege of the Lucknow Residency; with some observations on the condition of the province of Oudh, and on the causes of the Mutiny of the Bengal Army.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1858 - Octavo (220 x 138 mm). Attractive later 19th-century tan half calf tooled with single fillets and floral cornerpieces gilt, and floral, vine-leaf and ropework rolls in blind, lettered section of original spine laid down, marbled sides, yellow surface-paper endpapers. Inscribed "The Governesses' Home, from N. W. Ford 1890" Complete with the errata slip. Spine relined with new endbands, lettering refurbished, occasional mild soiling to lower margins, short closed tear to bottom edge sig. I6 not affecting text. A very good copy. Tinted lithographic frontispiece and 3 similar plates including after Vincent Eyre, folding map and 3 folding plans, one full-page plan. A handsome copy of the second edition, just two months after the first, and with the addition of two appendices, "a narrative given by one of the Ladies who escaped from Sultanpoor", and Vincent Eyre's account of the relief of Arrah. "Gubbins' reminiscences of the Indian mutiny in Oudh and the Siege of Lucknow offer cogent insights into the background of the mutiny, the consequent defence of Lucknow, and his guide of intelligence operations. As the financial commissioner of Oudh, Gubbins' extensive dealings with the native population led him to assert that fundamental threats to Indian religion and caste formed the basis of the mutiny which [were] subsequently sparked by the appearance of the greased cartridge. With the inception of the Siege of Lucknow, Gubbins commanded an important segment of the Residency's perimeter and took charge of intelligence operations. His comments on the conduct of the siege are uncommonly candid while also being sympathetic to the terrible loss of life" (Riddick). Riddick, Glimpses of India, 219; Taylor 331.

        Works of Charles Dickens [Library Edition]

      London / Boston: Chapman & Hall / Ticknor & Fields, 1858-1859. First Library Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/No DJ as issued. Complete set of 22 octavo volumes (8 11/16 x 5 1/2 inches; 221 x 141 mm). Bound in contemporary full tan polished calf. Covers with gilt single fillet border, spines elaborately tooled in gilt in compartments with five gilt-dotted raised bands and red and green morocco gilt lettering labels, turn-ins decoratively tooled in gilt, marbled edges, marbled endpapers.

Dedication leaf in Vol. I of The Pickwick Papers reads, This best edition of my books is, of right, inscribed to my dear friend John Forster, biographer of Oliver Goldsmith, in affectionate acknowledgment of his counsel, sympathy, and faithful friendship during my whole literary life. Only illustrations are frontispieces in all volumes except Old Curiosity Shop (two volumes), Barnaby Rudge (two volumes), and Oliver Twist, which were bound without them. Scare first issue of the Library Edition. Overall, set is in very good condition for its age. All volumes inscribed on title page by early owner, Wickliff E. Baldwin. Some rubbing to extremities. Two volumes have some damage... David Copperfield, Vol. I: spine and front board separated from block. Oliver Twist: ffep missing, spine and front board separated from block, front hinge torn halfway up from tail to 1-inch closed tear in calf facing of front board. The Library Edition came about largely because of the suggestion of Forster that while Dickens's works were available in volumes in the Cheap Edition and in reprints of the serial parts, there was no high-quality edition that would appeal to the wealthy. Dickens eventually came round to the idea that an elegant edition could raise the stature of his writings. He faced a complication, in that the rights to the works were divided between Chapman and Hall and Bradbury and Evans. Consequently, the volumes contained the imprints of both publishers. With a dedication to Forster, the Library Edition appeared in 22 volumes in 1858-9 at 7s 6d per volume. Titles included Pickwick, Nickleby, Chuzzlewit, Old Curiosity Shop, Reprinted Pieces, Barnaby Rudge, Hard Times, Sketches by Boz, Oliver Twist, Dombey, Copperfield, Pictures from Italy, Bleak House, Little Dorrit, and Christmas Books. The only illustrations were the frontispieces. Between 1861 and 1874 this edition was reissued in 30 volumes with the addition of Tale of Two Cities, Great Expectations, Our Mutual Friend, The Uncommercial Traveller, A Childs History of England, Christmas Stories, and Drood.

      1858. , 1858-1875, in-4, , demi-chagrin aubergine à coins, dos à cinq faux nerfs, Important recueil, mis en oeuvre par le bibliophile Henri Viellard, de travaux du mathématicien Amédée Mannheim (1831-1906). Il comprend en tout 37 pièces, extraits et tirés à part. Amédée Mannheim fut capitaine d'artillerie, avant d'entrer à l'École Polytechnique en 1859, où il enseigna la géométrie descriptive et la stéréotomie de 1864 à 1901. Il s'intéressa à plusieurs branches de la géométrie. "His primary interest was in projective geometry, and he was influenced by Chasles's work on the polar recriprocal transformation, which he further investigated with respect to metric properties. He applied these studies in his work to kinematic geometry, which he defined as the study of motion, independent of force, time, and any elements outside the moving figure." DSB IX, 80.

        On Chloroform and other Anaesthetics: their Action and Administration

      One woodcut illus. in the text. xliv, 443 pp., 28 pp. of Churchill's ads dated September, 1858 bound in at end. 8vo, modern red half-morocco and cloth, t.e.g. London: J. Churchill, 1858. First edition. Snow, the first specialist in clinical anesthesiology, placed the administration of ether and chloroform on a scientific basis with the publication of the present treatise. Snow was the first to perform experimental research on the physiology of the anesthetized state, and the information obtained during the course of his investigations influenced the construction of the first regulating inhaler for clinical use. He experimented on animals to practice endotracheal anesthesia and the technique of carbon dioxide rebreathing, described intercostal paralysis, determined anesthetic concentrations in air and blood, experimented with dozens of anesthetic agents (including amylene, which he was the first to administer), and defined the five stages of anesthesia. Snow's On Chloroform appeared shortly after his untimely death from cerebral hemorrhage; it includes a definitive biography of Snow by his friend Benjamin Ward Richardson, and a large index. Deeply concerned by the frequent misapplication of chloroform that resulted in numerous deaths, Snow set out to provide extensive information on proper use of the drug, which was much more fast-acting than ether. He devotes an entire section to cases, some in the United States, which resulted in the death of the patient. A nice copy, preserved in a slipcase, with the ownership inscription: "E. Blackwell 355 Lexington Ave. N.Y. City Oct. 18 1883" on the free front endleaf. ? Duncum, Development of Inhalation Anaesthesia, pp. 17-22. Garrison-Morton 5666.

        Correspondance.

      Imprimerie impériale, Paris, 1858-69 - 32 volumes in-4 (304 x 235 mm). Demi-maroquin rouge janséniste à coins, dos à nerfs, titre et tomaison dorés, tête dorée. Première édition. Cette monumentale entreprise éditoriale, publiée par ordre de l'empereur Napoléon III, demanda douze années d'efforts aux Archives. Cette première édition ne fut pas mise dans le commerce. Cet exemplaire fut celui du duc de Montebello, comme en témoigne une note à l'encre conservée du relieur. Celle-ci donne la nature de la commande (demi-maroquin rouge), le nombre de volumes à faire (32) et le nom du propriétaire (Duc de Montebello). Le titre de duc de Montebello et de l'Empire a été créé le 19 mars 1808 par Napoléon Ier au profit de Jean Lannes (1769-1809), maréchal d'Empire (1804). Mortellement blessé en 1809 à la bataille d'Essling, son fils aîné, Louis Napoléon Lannes, fut le second duc de Montebello. Né à Paris le 30 juillet 1801 et mort au château de Mareuil-sur-Ay (Marne) le 18 juillet 1874, il fut diplomate et homme politique. Son fils prit à son tour le titre et son petit-fils à la suite Bel exemplaire. Vicaire, Manuel de l'amateur de livres du XIXe siècle, VI, col. 30. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE BRITISH EXPEDITION TO THE CRIMEA

      London: G. Routledge & Co, 1858. Hardcover. Very Good. 629 p. Frontispiece portrait, four plates, and ten folding maps and plans, including four housed in the rear pocket. First edition thus, a much expanded revision of Russell's The War (1856). The collected letters to The Times by its famous correspondent, covering the period from March 6, 1854 to June 29, 1856. Russell (1820-1907) left with the troops from Southampton, witnessed the unopposed landing at Evpatoriia on September 14, 1854, and reported all subsequent events until the proclamation of peace, bringing home to the British public the horrors of the war, the military mismanagement, and the heroism of the soldiers. Russell was knighted in 1895 for services to journalism and is described on his monument in St. Paul's as "the first and greatest of war correspondents." This copy bears the armorial bookplate of General Sir William John Codrington GCB (1804-84), a British general and politician who served in the Crimean War, on the front flyleaf. Codrington distinguished himself at the Battle of Alma, and again at the Battle of Inkerman, after which he assumed command of the light brigade as senior brigadier. Octavo. Original red cloth binding, with gilt titles. Some mild wear to the extremities; else very good.

        Guide du peintre-coloriste comprenant l'enluminage des gravures et lithographies, le coloris du daguerréotype, des vues sur verre pour stéréoscope et la retouche de la photographie à l'aquarelle, la gouache et à l'huile

      de 61 et (3) pages Paris, Desloges, 1858, in-8, de 61 et (3) pages, demi-toile rouge moderne à la bradel, Première édition, rare. Cet ouvrage présente les techniques de coloration des différents supports de reproduction : les gravures et les lithographies, les épreuves sur verre pour stéréoscope, les daguerréotypes sur plaque et sur verre, et les papiers photographiques. Manuel particulièrement intéressant en ce qui concerne la retouche des reproductions photographiques (daguerréotype et calotype), puisque cette pratique coïncida presque avec la naissance de la daguerréotypie et de l'impression sur papier négatif. On connait peut de choses sur l'auteur si ce n'est qu'il a publié d'autres ouvrages sur la peinture et la photographie comme "La photographie pour tous apprise sans maître" (1860) et "Peinture sur porcelaine: décoration et impression de toutes les couleurs d'un seul coup. Suivie de La peinture sur verre, émail, stores, écrans, marbre et de l'art e' exécuter la vitraux-manotypie; ou, Manière de faire soi-même les vitraux factices" (1882).

        LEVELEI EJSZAKAMERIKABOL...

      Peste [i.e. Budapest, 1858. 175,[1]pp. plus twelve tinted plates including frontis. Modern half morocco and marbled boards. Plates somewhat foxed, contemporary ink note on titlepage, margin trimmed on couple of plates slightly affecting caption, else quite good. Janos Xantus was one of the pioneering ornithologists of California. Involved in the Hungarian Revolution of 1848, he came to the U.S. at the end of 1851 and worked as a topographer on the Pacific Railroad Survey and then as a member of the U.S. Coast Survey. He was stationed in California during the coastal survey, and while there made valuable collections of birds for the Smithsonian Institution, including many new species, some of which were named after him. Later he was attached to the U.S. navy and commanded an expedition to make meteorological observations in certain parts of the Pacific Ocean. During the latter service, which concluded in 1861, he discovered eighty-nine islands and sand banks. He was appointed U.S. consul at Manzanillo, Mexico, and led a scientific research party into the Sierra Madre before permanently returning to his native Hungary in 1864. The present book is one of two Hungarian publications by Xantus, providing an account of his travels in the U.S. The other volume, UTAZAS KALIFORNIA DELI RESZEIBEN, was published in Pest (i.e. Budapest) in 1860. Xantus undertook the journey across North America to California recorded herein in 1856. This volume includes letters written in Nebraska, Fort Laramie, New Orleans, Fort Riley, Los Angeles, San Francisco, etc., with notices of Marcy's expedition to the Red River and a rare 19th century account of Hungarians in Texas. Although many bibliographers claim that this work was taken from Marcy's narrative, the borrowed material would appear to be limited primarily to three plates. Contains Wichita and Comanche vocabularies, and plates illustrating a Wichita Indian village and dance, the San Gabriel Mission, Los Angeles, various Indians, and New York's Union Square. Cowan lists this title under the name of the editor, Istvan Prepost. Streeter calls this an "unauthorized" edition of Xantus's letters, asserting that the "authorized" edition is the 1860 title noted above. Not in Pilling or Ayer, despite the linguistic content. HOWES X1, "aa." GRAFF 4784. COWAN, p.500. SABIN 105715. WAGNER-CAMP 316. STREETER SALE 3066. DAB XX, pp.589-90.

Spine extremities and corners worn, boards lightly rubbed. Somewhat tanned, with scattered foxing and an occasional ink stain. About very good.

Six members of the family were murdered, one of the sons left for dead, and Mary and Olive were hauled away by the Apaches. Mary died in captivity, and Olive was ransomed in 1856. She was extensively tattooed, and went on tour to describe her experiences and display her decorations. The book was tremendously popular in its time, and a bestseller.

Bien complet du plan de la forêt de Crécy. Entre autres chasses, l'auteur consacre un chapitre à celle du phoque en baie de Somme : il narre notamment une partie de chasse au Crotoy en baie de Somme, à laquelle il participa en compagnie de Porphyre Labitte, lui-même auteur d'une importante et rare monographie sur le sujet, publiée la même année (Chasses exceptionnelles. Des phoques sur les côtes de la Manche. Paris, de l'Imprimerie de T. Tinterlin, 1858). Les pages 109 a 128 contiennent une traduction en vers des Cynégétiques du poète latin Némésien.

        Chasses exceptionnelles. Des phoques sur les côtes de la Manche

      plaquette in-8 de [2]-34 Paris, de l'Imprimerie de T. Tinterlin, 1858, , plaquette in-8 de [2]-34 pages et une carte, demi-parchemin postérieur, pièce de titre en long, couverture conservée, Plaquette de toute rareté, sur un sujet non moins rare, tirée à part du Journal des chasseurs (livraisons des 15 et 30 juin 1858) ; non citée dans la Bibliographie des ouvrages français sur la chasse de Thiébaud. Son auteur, l'abbevillois Porphyre Labitte (1823-1885), député puis sénateur de la IIIe République et maire de Blangermont, étudia les sciences et l'histoire naturelle ; il fut préparateur au Muséum, au Collège de France et à l'École de Médecine. Il fut l'un des organisateurs du musée Orfila, et il administra les musées d'Abbeville. En 1869, il publia un Mémoire sur la bibliothèque et les musées de cette ville. Ce mémoire sur les chasse aux phoques relève à la fois de ses aptitudes en histoire naturelle, de sa connaissance de sa région d'origine et surtout de ses expériences propres de chasseur, au Crotoy : après quelques considérations sur l'animal, Labitte nous plonge dans une partie de chasse, depuis ses préparatifs et la mise en place de pochons sur les bancs, l'examen des traces - laires - laissées par les phoques sur le sable, jusqu'à la dégustation de la chaire de l'animal. Michelet, déjà à l'époque où Labitte narre ses exploits, se désolait de cette pratique : "Cruelle ignorance de l'homme : comment les phoques, qui sont si rapprochés de lui, ont-ils été tués sans horreur". Labitte se charge de lui répondre : "Que ceux que toucheront les plaintes et la sensibilité du poétique historien n'entreprennent pas nos chasses et nous pardonnent nos meurtres". L'auteur reconnait néanmoins le problème du dépeuplement de la baie : "(...) on pouvait compter par centaines les phoques de la baie ; je suis content maintenant quand je peux en compter une trentaine, les petits de l'année compris". La chasse aux phoque en baie de Somme fut interdite en 1972. Sans le frontispice représentant la Chasse aux Phoques dans la baie de la Somme, mais bien complet de la carte de la Somme à mer basse. Petits accrocs au dos. Rousseurs, planche jaunie. Bibliothèque Cynégétique d'un Amateur, p. 118.

The lower half of the wall bill describes the other animals in the menagerie, among which we find a huge selection of big cats (what Renz was especially known for): giant lions from the Barbary, cougars (felis convolor), king tigers from Bengal, panthers, jaguars and ocelots, but also a greenland-dog (probably a huskie), hyaenas, wolves, racoons, a polar bear, lamas and guanacos, different antelopes and a collection of monkeys and parrots as well as two boa constrictors. &#150; The menagerie and circus of Christian Renz was one of the best known travelling menageries in Europe in the second half of the 19th century. It was founded by Ernst Jakob Renz (1815-1892) in Berlin in 1842 under the name &#145;Circus olympique&#145; and owned impressive menagerie buildings, a.o. in Berlin, Breslau, Bremen, Copenhagen Hamburg and Vienna. &#150; A few comparable though not identical wall bills are held by special collections in Leipzig and Dresden. 2000 g

        Anatomy Descriptive and Surgical

      London: John W. Parker and Son, 1858. First Edition. Very good antiquarian condition. Large 8vo. xxii, 363 engraved text illustrations. With 2 pp. advertisement at end. Original publisher's brown pebbled cloth, spine lettered in gilt. Brick red endpapers. Binding repaired and refurbished but overall in exceptional state, the text clean and crisp, with many gatherings unopened. True First Edition, not to be confused with the first American edition of 1859. Whereas most copies were heavily used and literally read to pieces, ours still has many unopened gatherings and is preserved in genuinely attractive condition. It is a remarkable fact the present work is still being published after 158 years, attesting to the enduring legacy of the author who died suddenly of smallpox at the age of only 34 years of age. In the 2015 edition of "Gray's Anatomy" (41st Edition) we find the statement: "In 1858, Drs. Henry Gray and Henry Vandyke Carter created a book for their surgical colleagues that established an enduring standard among anatomical texts. After more than 150 years of continuous publication, Gray?s Anatomy remains the definitive, comprehensive reference on the subject." Indeed, Gray's anatomical textbook has been more widely studied by successive generations of medical students than any other. It is justly celebrated for the clarity of the illustrations and text, and its deceptively simple layout. "Gray's treatise was distinguished for the lucid and logical arrangement of a mass of detailed descriptions; clear new drawings based on dissections by the surgeon-author and the artist; and sections on the surgical anatomy of defined areas, such as the axilla, the elbow, the popliteal space, the perineum, and the laryngotracheal region" (Lilly Library, Notable Medical Books, 211). Provenance: armorial bookplate of Sydney Herbert (1869-1955), 16th Lord Elphinstone, of Carberry Tower, Scotland (near Edinburgh), and with the booklabel of Carberry Tower. In 1910 Lord Elphinstone married Mary Bowes-Lyon (1883 -1961), maternal aunt of Queen Elizabeth II. The couple lived at Carberry Tower and made many significant improvements to the house and gardens. Lady Mary bequeathed Carberry Tower to the Church of Scotland. References: Garrison & Morton 418. Norman 939. Grolier, One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine 68.

        Wagon Road from Fort Defiance to the Colorado River. Letter from the Secretary of War Transmitting the Report of the Superintendent of the Wagon Road from Fort Defiance to the Colorado River

      [Washington] 1858 - 35th Congress, 1st Session. House of Representatives Ex. Doc. No. 124. 87 pp, with large folding map in rear pocket covering. Modern blue buckram with gilt title on spine. Old archival tape repair to final two leaves at gutter; map has one old tape repair and several small splits at the intersections. In 1857, Beale-an accomplished frontiersman who had traversed the country from coast to coast six times bearing dispatches in the late 1840s-accepted a commission to survey a wagon road and establish a trade route along the 35th parallel from Fort Smith, Arkansas to Los Angeles. The expedition is noted in part for Beale's successful use of camels as pack animals. The wagon road began at Fort Smith and continued through the New Mexico Territory and Arizona Territory to Fort Defiance, before crossing the Colorado River near present-day Needles, California. The Mojave Road continued west from where Beale's Wagon Road met the Colorado River, through the Mojave Desert to Southern California. The part of the expedition described here (from Fort Defiance in northeast Arizona to the California border, primarily presented in the form of Beale's diary) was conducted in the second half of 1857. Beale's letter of transmittal is enthusiastic with regard to climate, noting that there was no sickness at all in camp ("the medicine chest proved only an incumbrance") and that "even in midwinter, and on the most elevated portions of the road, not a tent was spread, the abundant fuel rendering them unnecessary for warmth and comfort." However, since "this will inevitably become the great emigrant road to California," he recommends the construction of several dams and bridges to make travel easier, as well as the establishment of a military post on the Colorado. This he says is "an indispensable necessity for the emigrant over this road; for although the Indians.are agricultural and consequently peaceable, they are very numerous.The temptation of scattered emigrant parties with their families, and the confusion of inexperienced teamsters, rafting so wide and rapid a river with their wagons and families, would offer too strong a temptation for the Indians to withstand."
