        Course of lectures on the physiology and pathology of the central nervous system

      Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1860. Brown-Séquard, Charles-Édouard (1817-1894). Course of lectures on the physiology and pathology of the central nervous system. xii, 276pp. 3 engraved plates. Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott & Co., 1860. 226 x 144 mm. Modern cloth, original black blind-stamped covers laid on to front and back covers. Plates a bit foxed, but very good. Bookplate of D. J. Canale, M.D. First Edition in Book Form. Brown-Séquard?s course of lectures, summarizing his twenty years of work on the nervous system, was delivered before the Royal College of Surgeons in May 1858 and subsequently published in the Lancet; they appear here in a revised and expanded version. The series contained a full explanation of Brown-Séquard?s investigation of spinal cord transection, in which he defined the relative function of the posterior and anterior cord sections and their relationship to other neural pathways, and demonstrated that the gray matter of the spinal cord was the chief transmitter of sensory impressions. Brown-Séquard is best known for his classic description of spinal hemiparaplegia (?Brown-Séquard?s syndrome?) caused by damage to one half of the spinal cord (see Garrison-Morton [online] 4530), and for being one of the first to postulate the existence of hormones.

        THE INDIAN CAPTIVE. A NARRATIVE OF ADVENTURES AND SUFFERINGS OF MATTHEW BRAYTON, IN HIS THIRTY-FOUR YEARS OF CAPTIVITY AMONG THE INDIANS OF NORTH- WESTERN AMERICA.

      Cleveland. 1860. - 68pp. 12mo. Original half muslin and printed paper boards. Hinges tender. Boards a bit soiled, worn at spine ends. Contemporary ownership inscription on front free endpaper. A few fox marks, but generally clean and fresh internally. A very good copy. In a cloth clamshell case, leather label. A rare Indian captivity, not in Ayer or Field. Brayton was stolen near his home in Ohio in 1825 and sold to the Pottawatomi, who took him to Michigan, where he lived among the Winnebago, Chippewa, and Sioux. The latter took him west, where he was again sold, this time to the Snake Indians, who adopted him into their tribe. Brayton apparently lived among the Snake on the upper Missouri River, following them to California, where he remained some five years. He describes fighting the Blackfeet in Oregon, as well as his extraordinary thirty-four years of wandering all over the West. He finally reconciled himself to civilization, enlisted in the army in 1861, and was killed at Pittsburgh Landing in 1862. "Extraordinary as the incidents appear, there is abundant proof of its entire truth" - Thomson. "It is quite true that it would not have been possible for Brayton to have made some of the movements described among the tribes named. On the other hand the critics have overlooked the fact that Brayton was taken at the age of seven and lived among the Indians for thirty-four years. He could not read or write, and spoke English with some difficulty.There remains not the slightest doubt that Matthew was a Brayton, and his narrative is, in general, correct" - Wessen. "One of the most remarkable and - in spite of its relatively late publication date - one of the rarest items belonging to captivity literature" - Howes. This account is sometimes attributed to John H.A. Bone, who may have assisted Brayton in setting forth the narrative. An extraordinary account, rarely met with, and hardly ever encountered in an original binding. HOWES B736, "c." THOMSON 115. GREENLY MICHIGAN 32. GRAFF 393. STREETER SALE 4272. SIEBERT SALE 994.

Boards scuffed; spine tips and corners chipped. Internally very pretty, and specimens are in excellent condition.The work of Fanny Evelyn Chilton, with her signature and "Gilboa, Aug. 17th --60" on the FFEP. Two more hands contribute a history of this volume, on the verso of the FFEP, which reads, in part: "It came into possession of her niece Eliza Quarrier Chilton, and in the year 1921 of her grand neice Lettie Fisher Lynn of [illegible], in the state of Washington." In another hand, "I, Lettie F. Lynn pass it on to Anne Brainerd Lynn, great great great niece of Fannie Evelyn Chilton... February 1937."With the exception of these historical notes, the entire volume is in Fanny's careful hand -- the first ten pages contain a short introduction, "botanical explanations," classes and orders, orders of plants, and poisonous plants -- then the specimens follow. Specimens are labelled with the Latin and common name, the class and order, plus notes about the specimen (sometimes something about its origin, its medicinal uses, flowering habit, or connected myths) -- and Fanny has scattered quotes and poems throughout, the majority in English, with just a few in French. Includes fuschia, salvia, helianthus, oak of Jerusalem, chrysanthemum, petunia, hawthorne, primrose, and many more.

Sabin 30121: 'Two hundred copies privately [re]printed for Chas. Gorham Barney, of Richmond, Va., 1860. The recto of the first leaf reads, 'Presented to;' by which it is to be understood the entire edition was reprinted for presents only; but the book was used for exchanges. It is conspicuous for its ridiculously large margin." [Attributes: Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A Nestorian Hymn Book Used in Our Congregation in Oroomiah Persia]

      n.d., n.p. - 317p. Old, well-rubbed black leather. 17cm. Moderate general wear. Chaldean(?) text. Our title is taken from an undated 19th century note written on the endpaper by Anna J. Beach who was presenting this book to someone in Pittsfield, New Hampshire. Volume 56 (at page 91) of The Missionary Herald lists Anna J. Beach of Madison, N.Y as having sailed from Boston in February 1860 aboard the bark Smyrniote on her way with Harriet Newell Crawford to the Nestorian mission field to fill vacancies created by sickness and death. We suspect that this item dates around this time or perhaps a bit later. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Photo Portrait Album Dated 1860 With Original Watercolor Decoration and Background Illustration

      Oxford, UK, 1860-1867. Card. Marbled Paper Pastedown. Half Monochrome Paper Pastedown. . Very Good. Folio, 36 by 25 cm. 29 leaves. There is embellishment on every page. The more elaborate illustrations are of a bathing machine, a sailboat, a portrait gallery, as in a stately home, a billiard room, a theater, a carriage, a traincar(s), inside and out, a game of croquet. Into these illustrations photo cameos are cleverly placed. Sometimes the photos are merely framed and apart from the watercolor illustration, and other times they are integral to the illustration, and one can say there is even an element of tromp d'oeil to the incorporation of the photo(s). The photo album would appear to be a combination of photos of family and of friends. In the latter would be a good number of young men, probably undergraduates. Some in this group may in fact be related to one another, and we do find multiple photos of the same subject. Generally the people photographed are good-looking, and if older, distinguished-looking. A few photos are of buildings, presumably at Oxford -- none of the better-known landmarks, though. Two pages are just large group photos, both of sporting teams -- cricket and rugby, it would seem -- and this is evidence that Oxford is the most salient organizing principle of the album.

      1860 - Manuscrit signé de 12 feuillets in-8 oblong rédigés au recto, pour un article paru dans la Revue Européenne du 1er Juin 1860, tome IX, pp. 409-413 : Intéressant manuscrit autographe signé par l'écrivain et critique Emile Perrin (1814-1885), alors ancien directeur de l'Opéra Comique (1848-1857) et futur directeur de l'Opéra (1862-1871) puis Administrateur général de la Comédie Française (1871-1885). On relève les annotations d'imprimeur (noms des typographes). Son analyse de Fidelio et de sa réception en France sont très informées. "Le Théâtre-Lyrique avait inauguré par Orphée sa saison d'hiver, il vient d'ouvrir par Fidelio sa saison de printemps. Après avoir fêté tour à tour Weber, Mozart et Gluck, il a voulu rendre les mêmes honneurs à Beethoven. L'intention est également louable ; mais je crains que le succès ne soit point égal. Populaire en Allemagne, accueilli avec enthousiasme en Angleterre, la partition de Fidelio n'a jamais pu s'acclimater sur nos scènes françaises. Faut-il en accuser le goût de notre public ? [ . ] C'est dans la faiblesse de la pièce sur laquelle Beethoven a écrit la partition de Fidelio qu'il faut donc chercher la cause de ce constant insuccès. Le triste mélodrame de Bouilly, mis d'abord en musique par Gaveaux, n'était pas de nature à inspirer Beethoven. Son génie plane sur les hauteurs sublimes de la Symphonie Pastorale, de la Symphonie Héroïque ; il étouffe emprisonné dans les murs étroits d'une fable vulgaire, sans vraisemblance, sans intérêt, sans passion." [ Suit une analyse de l'histoire de Fidelio et de sa réception par le public français ] "L'exécution de Fidelio est inférieure à l'exécution d'Orphée et des noces de Figaro. L'orchestre, sur lequel pèse ici une grande part de responsabilité, s'est montré parfois, notamment dans l'ouverture, au-dessous de sa tâche. Mme Viardot n'a pu trouver dans le rôle de Fidelio les puissants contrastes, la vive passion du rôle d'Orphée. [.] Le rôle entier paraît d'ailleurs écrit sur un registre trop élevé pour la voix de Mme Viardot, et bien que cette voix soit douée d'une étendue exceptionnelle, elle n'atteint cependant les notes les plus élevés qu'à l'aide d'un déchirement douloureux. Le personnage de Fidelio exige, en outre, de la jeunesse ; sous l'habit du jeune paysan qui surprend l'amour de la fille du geôlier, Mme Viardot nous a fait regretter l'art avec lequel elle portait la tunique, la chlamyde et le cothurne antiques. M. Battaille chante le rôle de Rocco en musicien consommé et avec un grand sentiment du style ; Mlle Faivre montre de l'intelligence et la finesse, mais une finesse qui touche parfois au maniéré ; les autres artistes ne sont point de taille se mesurer à cette partition. [.] L'artiste chargé de représenter Ludovic Sforza a failli plus d'une fois, par l'étrangeté de ses allures, amener dans ce sombre drame un élément tout à fait imprévu, l'élément comique. Quel que doive être le succès de Fidelio, il faut savoir gré au Théâtre-Lyrique de cette tentative. [.] Il est assez curieux de voir une scène musicale, qui marche au quatrième rang, donner aux autres cet exemple du sentiment de l'art et du respect au public dont on ne craint point ailleurs de flatter les caprices et les inexcusables fantaisies. Il semble pour cela que tous les moyens soient bons, et l'on a répondu à tout quand on a dit : cela fait de l'argent. Avec ce mot là on a voulu absoudre un scandale musical qui s'est produit l'autre semaine dans la salle Ventadour. Le Théâtre-Italien a représenté l'Orphée aux Enfers de M. Offenbach.[.]" Il évoque ensuite l'Opéra-Comique et M. Gevaërt, mais aussi Donizetti : "la gloire de Donizetti ne recevra pas non plus un nouveau lustre de la représentation du petit ouvrage inédit joué sous le nom de Rita ou le Mari battu. On peut même dire que la musique de Donizetti a passé presque inaperçu au milieu des rires provoqués par les plaisanteries, un peu au gros sel, dont la pièce et semée. Il est vrai que l'exécution musicale laisse beaucoup [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        THE MILL ON THE FLOSS

      1860. In Three Volumes. Edinburgh and London: William Blackwood and Sons, 1860. 16 pp Vol III undated ads. Original blind-stamped cinnamon-brown cloth. First Edition. This is the sad tale of Maggie Tulliver, from the Dorlcote Mill on the Floss River -- a novel noteworthy more for its accurate depiction of rural characters than for its rather drastic solution to an intricate plot. The novel also helped to break new ground in what was "acceptable" fare for reading: on a boating trip Maggie is "innocently but irremediably compromised" by her cousin's fiancé -- a fate to be shared by Thomas Hardy's TESS over thirty years later.~This copy does not have the preliminary ad leaf in Vol I; according to Carter this is the first state, as the leaf was inserted in the later copies issued. The volumes are in Carter's binding 'B', with the Edmonds & Remnants binder's ticket (the 'A' binding, identical except for the spine gilt, typically was by "Burn & Co."); Carter "hypothesizes" that 'B' might have followed 'A', but leaves it open to question. Also, this copy's Vol III ads cite the "Seventh Edition" of ADAM BEDE, while some copies have ads citing the "Eighth Edition."~This is a bright, near-fine set, with scarcely any external wear or soil (just some wrinkling of the cloth near the edge of Vol I's spine); as usual there is some cracking (and re-gluing) of the delicate original endpapers at the hinges. The volumes are tight, there is no foxing on the leaves, and the gilt on the spines remains bright. The first edition of THE MILL ON THE FLOSS is not all that scarce, but it is becoming difficult to obtain in this condition. Baker & Ross A5.1.a(1); Sadleir 816a; Wolff 2060; Carter BV pp 110-1 (& plate VIII). Housed in a cloth slipcase with leather label, and inner chemise.

        Paris Moderne. Plan d'une ville que l'auteur a apelee Novutopie

      Libraires du Palais-Royal, Paris 1860 - Duodecimo, lightly embrowned; green quarter morocco, worn boards. First edition: a proposal for a 'new utopia' founded on pacifist principles.In 1859, a Franco-Italian alliance had sought to repel Austrian aggression in northern Italy, but the French people had been sickened by the losses, and Napoleon III had hastily signed an armistice. It is in this moment of anti-war sentiment that Paris Moderne is situated. Whilst the author proudly claims to have served forty years in the army, this is an essentially pacifist plea in which both the political goals and the heavy loss of life are brought into question in a movement which anticipates the role of war in a mechanized society. That is, battles are reduced to the tragic mathematics of attrition so familiar from later conflicts: in the case of the battle of Eylau, four thousand French in return for six to eight thousand Austrian.His fear is that this culture of war has become so engrained in the public that whole generations exist who regard war as normal, and for whom literature has become nothing more than the bulletins of armies.Although he dreams of a new utopia not brought up 'au bruit du tambour,' he poignantly quotes Cobden: 'La guerre viendra, hélas! toujours trop tôt?'.
