        PARTIE DU PORT-LOUIS [manuscript title]

      [N.p., but almost certainly Port Louis. circa 1860.]. Manuscript map, 15 1/4 x 25 1/2 on drafting linen. Handcolored. Old folds. Minor wear and soiling. Browned. Near fine. Manuscript plan of Port Louis on the island of Mauritius. The legend contains sixteen lettered items, including the fortifications and government buildings, as well as several buildings which are denoted on the map with a dotted line, indicating future rather than current structures. Government buildings and fortifications are colored red. This would seem to be a later copy of an earlier map of the city, evidently showing the town and fortifications as they were in 1769, when the French East India Company had just taken over. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce.

He grew up primarily with his mother, as his father traveled much of the time for his work, and at the age of 21 he converted to Christianity, becoming a missionary to the Ojibways. These are the first journals kept by a Canadian native.

        "Brown tries his new Hack, which is as quiet as a Lamb,-just about!"

      London, [c. 1860]. 6-3/4 x 9 in. Pencil and watercolor on paper, mounted in a larger sheet of paper. Matted and framed . Relates to Leech's series of riding cartoons in the magazine Punch. John Leech (1817-1864) was one of the most prolific and successful of the English artists and caricaturists of the mid 19th century. "His humour was like his talent, gentle, warm-hearted and positive, his world, the ups and downs of middle class life, the sports of the squirearchy, and the peccadilloes of army officers and undergraduates" (Houfe). The conventions of social humor he established with his first contributions to the newly founded Punch, in 1841, lasted into the 1920s, but his greatest fame came through his book illustrations, particularly those for Surtees's sporting novels. "Extravagantly praised by Ruskin, Leech's often careless but never crude drawings have survived in charm and humour to give us a refreshing glimpse of mid-Victorian society." (Houfe)

        Notes on Nursing second edition

      Nightingale's book was prepared 1959 and published 1960. It has 79 pages and was intended for the untrained nurse. In that same year, 1960, Harrison published an edition designed for the medical profession. It was published at two shillings in the cheaper edition and at six shillings, the de luxe edition with St. Michael crosses on all four corners of the board. My copy is the de luxe; six shillings then had a purchasing power equal to twenty pounds today. That first (79-page) edition has been republished over and over again. The second edition  was issued in much smaller quantity (2,000 is the figure oft quoted) and is consequently much rarer today. I show as many scans as the site will accept and at the highest definition the site will accept. The brown fep has that old-fashioned "WARNING" label, with a BOOKSALE stamp on it. There is a library stamp on title page and on Preface page a stamp and a "stacks" manuscript inscription. The binding is heavil rubbed, the spine scraped, abd corners bumped. I show scans of front, back, sub-title page, damage at top of spine, and title page without the library mark

      Wien, 27. XI. 1860. - 2¾ SS. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-4to. An einen Autor, dem er für eine Schrift "zu Gunsten der Farbenlehre" Goethes dankt: "Es wird Eurer Hochwohlgeboren unerklärlich gewesen seyn, daß Sie bis jetzt von mir noch kein Wort des Dankes für die freundliche Uebersendung der Schrift zu Gunsten der Farbenlehre des Großvaters erhalten haben. Erlauben Sie mir in diesen Zeilen mich mit der Angabe bei Ihnen zu entschuldigen, daß ich seit mehreren Monaten von Dresden abwesend bin und mich gegenwärtig im Urlaub hier aufhalte. So geschah es daß Ihr Werk mit anderen Gegenständen erst vor Kurzem mir hierher nachgeschickt wurde und erst jetzt in meine Hände kam. Seitdem hat mein Bruder Walter mir auch den Abdruck des an ihn gerichteten Schreibens zugehen lassen und bitte ich Sie, den so verspäteten Ausdruck meines herzlichen Dankes auch jetzt noch freundlich aufnehmen zu wollen. Zu den Wünschen deren Erfüllung dem Großvater am Meisten am Herzen lag, gehörte der, die Wahrheit seiner Lehre von den Farben anerkannt zu sehen. Es wurde ihm jedoch diese Anerkennung während seines Lebens nicht zu Theil [.]". - Bei dem Autor mag es sich um Friedrich Grävell handeln, dessen Werk "Die zu sühnende Schuld gegen Goethe" in eben dem Jahr erschienen war, aus dem der vorliegende Brief datiert. - Mit kleinen Randläsuren; Bl. 1 und 2 größtenteils im Mittelfalz durchtrennt.

        Loved, and Lost! The True Story of a Short Life. Told in Gossip Verse, and Illustrated

      London: Day and Sons, circa, 1860. Octavo, 96 pp. (entirely lithographed, with full-page tinted lithographs in the text); very light spotting, but an excellent copy, recased in the original green cloth with new endpapers, all edges gilt. One of the earliest illustrated books written for children and published in Australia, this is a rare work - one of the rarest of all the prolific Meredith's publications in fact. Dedicated to her young son, Owen, and probably based on real events, it is a verse narrative of the short, incident-filled life of an Australian parakeet in the wild and in domestic captivity. The work is delightfully illustrated by the author, with each page offering delicate vignettes of bush and domestic life; in addition there are sixteen tinted lithographic plates recording the more significant episodes in the life of the parakeet hero.

        Manuscript Letters - Nyasaland with David Livingstone

      England, 1860. Westminster, 1860-1862. Set of four ALS relating to Bishop Mackenzie and the Church of England, one of which mentions a farewell service preceding his departure to Nyasaland. Three manuscript signed letters written and signed by Charles Frederick Mackenzie, first bishop of Central Africa, together with one manuscript signed letter written and signed by his sister Anne, all addressed to the Dean of Canterbury, at the time being Henry Alford. 8vo. Three letters are complete on double-leafs; one is clipped and mounted to unrelated covers, some creasing, otherwise in very good condition, with fascinating content.Three letters are written and signed by Charles Frederick Mackenzie prior to his departure to Central Africa to lead a mission as the first Bishop of Nyasaland - this having been arranged at the behest of Dr. David Livingstone. They deal with various matters of church and missions, primarily his plans to raise funds for Saint Augustine's College, which was a missionary college of the Church of England from 1848-1947, at the time of this letter still fairly new. Letters were written at his home address 79 Pall Mall in Westminster, on blue letterhead of the Oxford, Cambridge, and Dublin Mission to Central Africa, and dated 28 April, 11 September, and 15 September 1860, respectively. [Following Dr. David Livingstone's request to Cambridge, Bishop Mackenzie took on the position of being the first missionary bishop in Nyasaland (now Malawi). To this end, in October 1860 he was commissioned at Canterbury Cathedral as the first missionary of the Universities Mission to Central Africa (UMCA). Within 3 months, on 1 January 1861, in St George's Cathedral, Cape Town, he was consecrated "Bishop of the Mission to the Tribes Dwelling in the Neighbourhood of the Lake Nyasa and River Shire".] Especially interesting, is a letter by the bishop's sister Anne, describing in great detail a lithograph of explorer Dr. David Livingstone erecting a cross at bishop Mackenzie's gravesite in Nyasaland, Africa in 1862, with further mention of communication with explorer John Kirk who travelled with Livingstone and became British administrator in Zanzibar. Penned on mourning paper and dated December 28, presumably 1862, some eleven months after her brother's death. [Anne Mackenzie was a writer, and for thirty one years, editor of the missionary magazine 'The Net Cast in Many Waters: Sketches from the Life of Missionaries', published in London from 1866 to 1896. Unmarried, she spent some time teaching at mission schools in South Africa before joining the Zambesi Mission of the Universities' Mission to Central Africa, which was led by her brother. She died in 1877.] The recipient of all described correpsondence is Henry Alford (1810-1871), English churchman, theologian, textual critic, scholar, poet, hymnodist, writer, and at the time Dean of Canterbury. In March 1857 Lord Palmerston had advanced him to the deanery of Canterbury, where, till his death, he lived the same energetic and diverse lifestyle as ever. Alford was friends with the most eminent of his contemporaries. Excerpts from the letters: Charles Frederick Mackenzie. 79 Pall Mall. 11 September 1860. "... to have a farewell service with Holy Communion in Canterbury Cathedral, on Oct. 2. I suppose too many take for granted that the collection made at the offer tray, will be directed to the funds of this mission. I have been anxious to give a helping hand at the same time to the local... viz the native wing for S. Augustine's Coll... I understand you are now on the Continent but you will get this on your return..." Charles Frederick Mackenzie. 79 Pall Mall. 15 September 1860. "...You will now have heard from the Warden that he declines my idea of having an offering made for St. Augustine's new wing. I dare say he is right.... The Bp of Chichester will probably be at Canterbury on the Monday night.." Anne Mackenzie. "93 Via del Corso [Rome?]. December 28, circa 1861. "Dear Mr. Dean, Your cathedral was the last church in England in which my brother worshipped, and your garden is so associated with him that I venture to send you a sketch of his grave at the Ruo River, with D. Livingstone putting up a rude cross on it as he promised he would do. The likeness are very good. D. Livingstone himself seems to be gazing at the remains of the Bishop whom he loved, with a true and sorrowing look. His brother is beside him. The other two figures are Sr Kirk... and Sr Mellor who sent me the original sketch, from which a friend made this lithograph. The clothed native is a Johanna man, one of Livingstone's crew... I saw Mr. Kirk in London... he had spent several days with them [Portuguese] at Chibisa?'s before he left the country..." [The University of Southern California holds a photograph of Mackenzie's gravesite in the jungle.] Born in Peebleshire, Scotland in 1825, Charles Frederick Frazier Mackenzie (1825-1862) was a Church of England bishop, the first Bishop of Central Africa. He is commemorated in some Anglican Church Calendars. Mackenzie was educated at St John?'s College and Caius College, Cambridge. He left England for Natal in 1855, to serve as archdeacon to Bishop John William Colenso, working among the English settlers there until 1859. Following Dr. David Livingstone's request to Cambridge, Bishop Mackenzie took on the position of being the first missionary bishop in Nyasaland (now Malawi). To this end, in October 1860 he was commissioned at Canterbury Cathedral as the first missionary of the Universities Mission to Central Africa (UMCA). Within 3 months, on 1 January 1861, in St George's Cathedral, Cape Town, he was consecrated "Bishop of the Mission to the Tribes Dwelling in the Neighbourhood of the Lake Nyasa and River Shire". Mackenzie led the Mission?'s first expedition up the Zambezi River into Nyasaland (now Malawi) and established a base near Lake Nyasa. The missionaries?' preaching of the Gospel and their efforts to secure the release of slaves (who formed the core of Bishop Mackenzie?'s mission community) led them into conflict with native leaders and Portuguese colonists and slave traders. The mission and the people among whom they lived and ministered, were under constant threat of drought, famine, and malaria. Eventually the mission?'s supply of quinine was exhausted, and in an outbreak of malaria that claimed the lives of three others in his missionary party and of many natives, Bishop Mackenzie died on 31 January 1862 only one year after his consecration.. Very Good.

        Italian Peasant Woman in Scenic Landscape

      1860. Watercolour mounted on sheet of light gray paper. Very good condition apart from a 5/8" tear in the top margin and some light soiling and minor foxing in the margins. A charming image of an Italian peasant woman adorned in native dress. This stunning watercolour is a beautiful example of the peasant genre of painting that was popular during the mid-nineteenth-century and epitomized by the works of artists such as Jules Breton (1827-1906), William Adolphe Bouguereau (1825-1905), and Jean-Baptiste-Camille Corot (1796-1875). In this romanticized portrayal of rural life, a colourfully dressed peasant woman is pictured amidst a picturesque seaside landscape engaged in her daily chores. Works such as this not only exalted the dignified, pure life of the noble peasant, but also celebrated the beauty of the native countryside. They were most likely sold to tourists as souvenirs of their travels.

        Arm for the Right; or, the Invalid's Last Appeal

      [Haverhill, Mass.?: no publisher. circa 1860-1870]. First. First edition. Broadside. Approximately 12" x 9". Modest but pervasive chipping and tears confined to the margins, good or better. 21 stanzas of verse and two paragraphs of explanation from a lady of Haverhill, Massachusetts, who here stands up in verse for her right to salubrious peace and quiet in the face of the repeated cacophonous depredations of the Haverhill Rifle Club---or as she has it in her note, "It is now nearly nine months since I have been obliged, let me be ever so sick and helpless, to leave my room or bed at a moment's warning, and flee before the Rifle Club, in order to save my life and reason. And this has been done repeatedly when I have not been able to sit up more than five or ten minutes during the day after leaving the carriage. I should have entered a complaint at the commencement, but the Police Judge, the protector of the public peace and the town representative of Justice, was at the head of this outrage, and could not sustain the cause of right and humanity without involving himself in the overthrow." That Smith's outrage should find vent in verse is of course curious but not perhaps atypical of her time---certainly the ringing sentiments suit themselves to lyric: "Beneath the dark banner Of vice they're arrayed, And on Guilt and Injustice Their footsteps are stayed. Shouting in triumph, As onward they go, To inflict on the helpless New suffering and woe." Smith appears to have published a similarly gloomy collection of verse, Haverhill in Eclipse (Newburyport, 1870) and another scarce broadside aimed against local corruption, A New Year's address to the true hearted citizens and voters of Haverhill. OCLC notes two locations for this rare appeal. .

        Spinale Kinderlähmung. Monographie.

      - 2., umgearb. u. verm. Aufl., - Stuttgart, J.G. Cotta, 1860, VIII, 204 pp., 14 getönten lithogr. Taf., Pappband der Zeit. Die erste Monographie über dieses Krankheitsbild von Jakob von Heine (1800-1879). - "Erst in dieser stark vermehrten zweiten Auflage, unter Bekanntgabe von vielen neuen Methoden und Erkenntnissen erhielt dieses klassische Werk den Titel "Spinale Kinderlähmung", da er den Sitz der Krankheit im Rückenmark annahm, wenn er sich auch noch nicht auf Sektionsergebnisse stützen konnte. Er teilte das Leiden ein in das akute (primäre) und das chronische (sekundäre) Stadium und unterschied sehr wohl die cerebrale (spastische) Hemiplegie von der spinalen Lähmung, die er "Paralysis infantilis spinalis" nannte. Ferner führte er sehr genaue Temperaturmessungen an den verschiedenen Körpergegenden durch und stellte dabei Unterschiede der Hautemperatur zwischen der gesunden und gelähmten Seite fest; auch das Zurückbleiben im Wachstum entging ihm nicht. Ebenso wies er schon auf das epidemische Auftreten hin, ferner auf die Kontrakturen und die anderen Fehlstellungen." - ".namentlich die zweite aus dem Jahre 1860, deren reicher Inhalt nur in Stichworten angedeutet werden konnte, sind als wahre klassische Werke zu bezeichnen; nach ihrer Lektüre wird man es voll und ganz verstehen (.) das die Bezeichnung einer der schlimmsten Plagen, welche Kinder und Erwachsene befallen kann, mit dem Namen des deutschen Orthopäden Jacob von Heine (1800-1879) als 'Heine-Medinische Krankheit' verbunden bleiben wird. - Ferner war Jakob Heine wahrscheinlich der erste in Deutschland welcher die orthopädische Gymnastik in seinem Institut bei Cannstatt einführte." - - "In 1940 Heine (1799-1879) gave the first description of acute anterior polyomelitus in a slender monograph of 78 pages. "Twenty years later (1860) in a much enlarged edition Heine gathered again his rich experiences, announcing many new methods and observations. He called his new monograph "Spinale Kinderlähmung" as he assumed the seat of the disease to be in the spinal cord --- These tow monographs by Heine, especially the second of 1860 . must be considered true classics . "Valentin - After a brief account of the acute or primary stage comes a detailed description of the second or paralytic stage with numerous clinical histories of the different forms of paralysis, followed by sections on etiology and pathologic anatomy, differential diagnosis, prognosis and treatment, especially by orthopaedics means. The 29 lithographic figures illustrate deformities and apparatus. The book contains numerous references to the literature. (Fischbein et al) - - Valentin, Gesch. d.
