Printed by Order of the Trusters, 1859. Condition: Gut. Bei der hier vorliegendem Ausgabe des GESAMTWERKS handelt es sich um eine Erstausgabe/Originalausgabe. Diese ist wohl in einer viel zu geringen Stückzahl gedruckt worden und ungemein selten. Speziell durch das regelmäßige Fehlen der Bde.

GRAY, Henry (1827-1861)
Philadelphia: Blanchard and Lea, 1859. Tall 8vo (260 x 165 mm; 10¼ x 6½ in.). xxxii, 754, [2] blank, 80 pages advertisements dated July 1859. Half-title. 363 wood-engravings in text after the drawings by H. V. Carter. Modern brown leather. A very good copy with characteristic light browning and intermittent marginal staining consistent with the book's use. Provenance: J. L. Mondloch (early 20th-century ink signature on half-title; possibly a physician from Montana of that name, died 1939). Item #403937 FIRST AMERICAN EDITION. Henry Gray's landmark Anatomy, which remains the standard work on the subject some 160 years after the publication of the first edition. The short-lived English anatomist and surgeon Henry Gray won prizes for his essays on the optic nerves (1849) and on the spleen (1854), the latter of which contained important facts about its function that had remained undiscovered for seventy years. In 1855, Gray was approached by his colleague Henry Vandyke Carter (1831-1897) at St. George's Hospital Medical School in London with the idea of producing a comprehensive, inexpensive, and accessible text on anatomy for medical students. After the publication in London of the Anatomy in 1858, numerous errors were found in its dense and technical text. The publisher's notice in the American edition informs the reader that the book's "passage through the press has therefore been superintended by a competent professional" to ensure the improvement of the text. The American edition enhanced on the index of the British edition, and rearranged certain parts for easier comprehe … [Click Below for Full Description]

William H Emory
Condition: Very Good. Washington, D. C.: Cornelius Wendell. Very Good. 1859. A complete set of three rebound volumes, actually two volumes in three, with all plates present as called for. Red stamped cloth boards with bright gilt imprint on spine, made to look like leather. Light wear on corners. Slightly faded marbled edges. Reports within volumes paginated separately. William H. Emory was appointed commissioner of the United States and Mexico Boundary Survey following John Russell Bartlett, who was MIA from the survey upon Emory's arrival to assume his appointment. Emory was left to scrap together an effective survey party and obtain an accurate survey of the border after previous errors had ceded the Mesilla Valley, important in constructing a trans-continental railroad, to Mexico. The Gadsden Purchase had corrected this, but also added new territory to be surveyed. In addition to helping to clear up the boundary controversy, Emory's accounts were important in noting that the deserts of the southwest were not an agrarian paradise, and his team assembled a wealth of natural history and anthropological observations. This report is also notable for the illustrations, with many plates of scenery, plants, animals, and in particular color plates of the native inhabitants and birds. Volume I contains the personal narratives, correspondence, meteorology, geology, ethnology, and paleontology. It has shadow toning and light soil on some pages, with shadowed offsetting from plates. The other volumes have light soil on some pages, with less toning. First part of Volume II is botany; … [Click Below for Full Description]

Charles Dickens
1859. For sale is a fine and rare second issue of the first edition of the original parts of A Tale of Two Cities, by Charles Dickens. Published London: Chapman and Hall, 193, Piccadilly; And At The Office Of All The Year Round, 11, Wellington Street, North. MDCCCLIX. 254p.p. A full suite of 16 illustrations by H.K. Browne. Tall 8vo. Beautifully bound in very fine contemporaneous black morocco over marbled boards. Bands to the spine, in gilt, and the title and author's name in gilt. Original marbled endpapers and page edges. Externally it remains in really very pleasing order; the morocco is largely fresh and the gilt crisp and bright, and the boards also. Occasional trivial extraneous rubbing, but this does not hinder its handsome finish. Internally, this example is without doubt one of the cleanest examples of this title we have handled; only a tiny amount of light spotting to a few text leaves. The vignette and frontispiece have spotting, as is predictable. The impressions to the plates are extraordinarily bright and bold - making them a very early, and important, set in the print run of the plates. Overall, this is an opportunity not to be missed. It is one of the hardest-to-find Dickens first editions, unrestored, and bound in a wonderful binding. It will grace any collection, and could not come more highly recommended.

Germany: 11-14 July 1859.

New York: General Protestant Episcopal Sunday School Union and Church Book Society, 1859. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Very Good. Item #8204 1st edition. A Very Good copy. Publishers deluxe brown cloth with elaborate gilt decoration, all edges gilt. 8vo., 154 pp, complete with eleven color plates including color title page, most with tissue guards in place. Bright, some moderate chipping to the spine cloth, most plates are lightly to moderately foxed, a few more heavily. The foxing seems, to have occurred because of the tissue guards. The book is tight but the binding was very prone to being shaken and this copy is very slightly so. Still, A Very Good copy.*** This is considered the first children's book written by a North Carolinian. It comes in at least two bindings, this being brown with elaborate gilt decoration. The other is blue with only the cover title in gilt and with no gilt edging. This has become a very difficult book to find, especially in this deluxe binding.***. [Attributes: First Edition]

n.p., n.d. but Japan: n.p., n.d. [but Japan: 1859. An interesting and instructive look at how the Japanese learned English in the generation following Admiral Perry's opening of Japan. 2 volumes in 1, oblong 8vo, approx. 198 french-fold pages sewn in the Japanese manner in contemporary and almost certainly original brown paper wrappers; minor working and wear, but in all a very good and striking example of a Japanese student's workbook for the attainment of English. The book has apparently been copied from American primers published by A. S. Barnes in New York in 1857, and Sargent's School Primer, Boston, 1859; both contain a variety of reading and spelling lessons "especially adapted to the capacity and taste of young children. It is hoped that it will proved [sic] valuable introduction to the national series of school readers prepared by Richard G. Parker." Both Parker's and Sargent's primers were available in bi-lingual editions in the Japanese market. Might this be the manuscript from which a printer might have used to publish the Japanese editions? Throughout, the English text, which has been carefully written in ink, is often translated interlinearly in red ink with Japanese characters creating an attractive visual appearance on the page. Included are 3 pages of alphabets, simple sentences, often in rhyme ("A cart for me / to ride and see / A ship at sea / with you and me." An interesting and instructive look at how the Japanese learned English in the generation following Admiral Perry's opening of Japan.

She blamed the majority of hospital deaths on overcrowding, lack of light and ventilation, and the collection of large numbers of the sick under one roof" (Norman). "The little book, revolutionary in character, set the seal on Miss Nightingale's authority on the subject of hospitals, and gave a new direction to their construction" (Bishop & Goldie). It was made up of two papers read before the National Association for the Promotion of Social Science and three articles reprinted from The Builder. G&M 1611.

"On Liberty" by John Stuart Mill. Published in 1859 by John W. Parker and Son in London. Second edition, as stated on the title page. The book measures approximately 7.75" x 5.25", and is 207 pages long, with an additional 8 pages of advertisements. The book is in good minus condition. Moderate wear and staining to the brown cloth boards. Tearing and chipping to the cloth on the spine. The book is a little cocked with an overbite. Underlining and notations in pen and pencil throughout the text. Previous owner's bookplate (Louis Blake Duff) on the front pastedown. Pen inscription on the front endpaper and preface. Ownership signatures penned on the title page. A key work by Mill, partially based on Utilitarian doctrine, remarkable for establishing philosophically the virtue of the liberty of the individual as an absolute good for the community as a whole, rather than simply as a relative virtue, in relation to tyranny and oppression. In large part, the modern liberal concept of democracy depends on the ethical theory expressed by Mill; much of what we now consider innate to our belief in democratic rule and the appropriate limits of the power of government over the individual was first articulated in these pages.

John Horton Slaughter
Texas, Kentucky: 1859. Important, Rare, Handwritten Letter by JOHN HORTON SLAUGHTER (aka TEXAS JOHN SLAUGHTER, SHERIFF SLAUGHTER, JOHN H. SLAUGHTER), written in 1859 when he was only 18 years old. Single Page Handwritten Letter, single sheet, light blue laid paper with a nickel size blind embossed emblem at the upper right corner, approximately 7.75 x 12 inches. GOOD condition, several folds where the letter was probably folded to fit into a small envelope (NO envelope is present), very small holes where a couple folds intersect, a few ink stains on the blank back side, otherwise solid with writing that is fully legible. Folded is how the letter was preserved and is its normal state. The letter was written to John H. Slaughter's 22 year old friend and trusted horse selling partner JOHN B. LINDSEY, of Frankfort, Kentucky. (The Lindsey / Lindsay family is an old and prominent Kentucky family, as are its relations.) The contents of the letter seem to indicate a familial relationship of some sort between the Slaughter and Lindsey family lines. This pre Civil War letter written at the age of 18 is by far the earliest letter of JOHN HORTON SLAUGHTER that I have seen. It gives a glimpse of his life and ambitions that have rarely, if ever, been recorded. The letter reads in great part: "(??) August 24, 1859. / Dear John / Yours of the 8th has been received and the draft for $500 which was very acceptable. You say you have not heard from me in a long time.
