        The War in Nicaragua. Written by Gen'l William Walker

      Mobile:: S. H. Goetzel & Co.,, 1860.. First edition.. Spine a trifle faded and sunned; some light offset to the title from the frontispiece; a couple of small marginal tears to the map along the mount; a very good copy, quite attractive.. 8vo, original brown cloth, gilt lettering, 431, [1], [1] pages. Frontis portrait, colored folding map of Nicaragua (approx. 15 x 16.5 inches) mounted in the rear. The firsthand account of Walker's military adventures in and brief tenure as president of revolutionary Nicaragua and the head of the nation's army, undertaken in 1854 with the support of Cornelius Vanderbilt. (After Walker's ill-advised attempt while president to take over Vanderbilt's Accessory Transit Company, Vanderbilt prevailed upon neighboring republics to overthrow Walker's regime in 1857.) This detailed account of the whole affair was published shortly before Walker left again for Central America with plans to reconquer Nicauragua, when he fell into the hands of the Hondurans and was executed in late 1860 by firing squad. (See the ANB.) With a contemporary newspaper clipping on Walker's death laid in (with traces of an old straight-pin hole to the front free endpaper and clipping where it had once been fastened).

        LISTA DE LOS TOROS QUE SE HAN DE LIDIAR EN LA PLAZA FIRME DE ACHO. PRESIDIDA POR EL ALCALDE MUNICIPAL Benemériro Sr. Coronel D. Estanislao Correa y Garay. Para el Domingo 2 de Diciembre de 1860. OCTAVAS. EL TORO. EL TORERO.

      LIMA-PERÚ 1860 - EMBLEMATICO CARTEL DE TOROS del año 1860, dando razón de 12 reses para lidiar el Domingo 2 de Diciembre de 1860, en la gran Plaza de ACHO (Lima-PERU) la más antigua de toda América y la tercera más antigua del mundo. EFEMERIDES PLAZA DE ACHO, 2 DICIEMBRE 1860, SE REALIZA UNA CORRIDA EN LA QUE POR PRIMERA VEZ UN DIESTRO ACTUA EN SOLITARIO. EL PORTENTOSO ESTOQUEADOR NACIONAL DE RAZA NEGRA ANGEL VALDEZ QUE POR ENTONCES VEIA ACRECENTARSE SU FAMA CORRIDA A CORRIDA ES EL PROTAGONISTA DE ESTA TARDE EN LA QUE TOREA, BANDERILLEA Y DA CUENTA DE DOCE ASTADOS LOGRANDO ASI UNA PROEZA SIN PRECEDENTES, con tal éxito, que salió catapultado como ídolo máximo de la afición limeña. Desde entonces su reinado se fue consolidando sobre la base de su habilidad en el segundo tercio y en la ejecución de suertes como las de el salto al trascuerno y a la garrocha, pero sobre todo por su extraordinaria efectividad en la ejecución de la suerte suprema, donde ponía de manifiesto su fuerza, valor y decisión. Otra hazaña memorable, el 24 de mayo de 1885, fue aquella de matar en esta misma vieja Plaza de Toros de Acho, con singular coraje y audacia, al célebre toro -Arabí Pachá-, y en la misma corrida a un hijo de este de nombre -Mucho Ojo-. Su fama trascendió fronteras. Textos tipográficos ornamentados con bello orlado floral xilograbado en madera, sobre papel seda azulado de la época. Formato en folio (2 hojas plegadas-con impresión por las cuatro caras) de medidas desplegados 41,5cm x 30,5cm. Precioso motivo central con toro grabado, en el centro de la hoja. Pequeña restauración profesional en esquina superior izquierda. Buen estado general de conservación. Figuraba en principio en el cartel como ESPADAS Antonio Marín, José Ortega, José Lara y Angel Valdez que se le programó como director de la cuadrilla, por lo que los hispanos Antonio Marín, José Ortega y José Lara -Chicorro- se negaron a actuar. El festejo iba a suspenderse pero Valdez habló con el empresario coronel Felipe Ruiz y le dijo que el sólo mataría a los 12 toros y además los banderillearía. Angel Valdez lo hizo. Mató los 12 toros de 12 estocadas y 1 pinchazo y como no tenía espada propia utilizo una corta y recta de propiedad del coronel Francisco Zavala. RARISIMO Y APRECIADISIMO CARTEL DE LA TAUROMAQUIA AMERICANA.

        Manuscript Log of the "Typhoon"

      Various places [Liverpool, Bombay, Singapore, Manila, etc.], july 30, 1860 - april 26, 1863. (SHIP'S LOG) Folio. Written in ink on rectos and versos of [58] leaves. Contemporary quarter calf, worn and scuffed, spine defective. Binder's ticket of a Liverpool firm on frost pastedown. A few leaves with pieces excised, with some loss. 3pp. later notes in the hands of members of the Salter family of New Hampshire, ca. 1874 . The extreme clipper ship "Typhoon"was built in 1851for the China trade by the firm of Fernald & Pettigrew of Portsmouth, NH. It was first launched in 1851 under the command of Charles H. Salter -- evidently the forbear of Commander James H. Salter, who authored this journal. The "Typhoon" was famous for its speed and power. In a memorable race around the Horn in the summer of 1851, the "Typhoon" defeated the competing clippers, the "Sea Witch", and the "Raven." As the "Typhoon" was sold to a British Company in 1863, this is probably its last journal under an American command. Appropriately, the final entry made by Salter is in Newport Harbor, April 26, 1863

      [St. Luke's Hospital], [1860], [London]: - This short piece by Dickens, on St. Luke's Hospital, originally published in the January 17 1852 issue of HOUSEHOLD WORDS. With Dickens' consent, it was reissued in this pamphlet form by the Hospital management as a fund- raising mechanism. The first issue had purple wrappers, in which the 'appeal' was not highlighted from the remainder of the text and, evidently, donations suffered accordingly. in this second issue, the wrappers are pink, the 'appeal' is boldly printed, and it was accompanied by an easy-to-use return envelope [much as we see today in the solicitations we receive. make it easy on the mark!]. A rather uncommon item of Dickensiana. Wrappers a bit faded, & show a mite of soiling. Paper repair to front wrapper top edge, as well as spine paper. Old vertical fold crease to center, as is usually found [from mailing?]. A VG copy. Original pale pink printed wrappers, sewn.

        Doit-on admettre une fièvre puerpérale ? (thèse d’agrégation de médecine – ratée – de Jules Luys)

      Paris, Imprimerie de Schiller 1860 - In-8° broché, cartonnage moderne, titre contrecollé, plat de couverture original bleu conservé, 32 pages. Très rare thèse ratée de Luys. Jamais parue en librairie, cet échec – il en fut juste distribué quelques exemplaires aux membres du jury et à quelques proches venus assister à l’examen, la rend absolument introuvable. Il la soutiendra trois années plus tard avec succès sur les maladies héréditaires. Après sa thèse de doctorat sous la direction de Charles Robin (1821-1885) et consacrée à l'histopathologie de la tuberculose (1857), Luys est nommé médecin des hôpitaux de Paris en 1862 et se consacre à la neurologie, publiant dès 1865 un important trait de neuro-anatomie illustré par ses propres dessins d'excellente facture. Il y fait notamment la première description du noyau centromédian du thalamus et du noyau sous-thalamique qu'il désigne de façon approximative comme la "bandelette accessoire des olives supérieures", ce dernier terme référant, dans la description de Luys, aux noyaux rouges. Outre son goût pour le dessin anatomique, Luys est aussi le premier à utiliser la photographie encore naissante pour établir une Iconographie photographique des centres nerveux (1873). Il publiera par la suite un ouvrage plus grand public, Le Cerveau et ses fonctions, qui présente une synthèse très personnelle des connaissances contemporaines sur cet organe. Dans sa traduction anglophone, cet ouvrage sera un succès de librairie. Sa qualité de médecin et scientifique est reconnue tant par ses pairs au travers de son élection à l'Académie de médecine en1877 que par ses contemporains qui le consacre chevalier de la Légion d'honneur, la même année. En 1876, il est membre d'une commission nommée par Claude Bernard pour étudier les expériences de métallothérapie du médecin Victor Burq. Parmi les autres membres de cette commission, on trouve Jean Martin Charcot et Amédée Dumontpallier. Par la suite, les recherches de Luys s'orientent davantage vers les maladies mentales auxquelles il consacre plusieurs traités. Chef de service aux hôpitaux de la Salpêtrière et de la Charité puis directeur de la Maison de Santé Esquirol et de l'asile psychiatrique à Ivry-sur-Seine, en 1864, à la suite de Baillarger, il s'intéresse comme nombre de ses contemporains à l'hystérie mais contrairement à son œuvre neuroanatomique, ses travaux en ce domaine subiront plus sévèrement le test de l'âge. Accusé d'avoir été berné par ses propres patients, Luys verra sa réputation d'homme de science fortement entamée. En 1881, Jules Bernard Luys crée avec Benjamin Ball le journal l'Encéphale consacré à la publication de travaux francophones en neurologie expérimentale et clinique. Pendant les dernières années de sa vie, les recherches de Luys abordent des sujets plus controversés encore : sur l'action à distance des médicaments, sur la magnéto-thérapie avec son assistant Gérard Encausse, les "effluves cérébrales", et d'autres phénomènes paranormaux, il publie plusieurs articles sous l'œil pour le moins sceptique de ses contemporains. L'Académie de Médecine nomme une commission d'enquête dont les conclusions, "diplomatiques", sont publiées dans son Bulletin de 1888. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

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

      London, [c. 1860] - 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) Image approx. 6-3/4 x 9 inches, matted and framed to 15 x 18-1/2 inches overall. Pencil and watercolor on paper, mounted in a larger sheet of paper. very good [Attributes: Soft Cover]

      - Bruxelles, M. Hayez, 1860. Folio (450 x 330mm). pp. (vi), with 48 beautifully handcoloured lithographed plates, each plate with an explanatory leaf of text. Contemporary half calf, richly gilt decorated spine with gilt lettering, sides with blind pressed and gilt decorated ornaments and lettering. First edition of this important and attractive work. 'An orchid hunter par excellence, Linden was the first to search the mountainous regions diligently for his orchids. In so doing, he was able to obtain many new cool-temperature plants for his sponsors in Belgium. After ten years in the western hemisphere, Linden returned to Brussels in 1845, where with his son, Lucien, he founded Horticulture Internationale, the first major commercial competitor of the British orchid house Messrs. Sander. The book is named in honour of M. Pescatore of St. Cloud, France, one of the earliest orchid hobbyists on the continent, and whose collection was formed by Linden. The publication was discontinued upon Pescatore's death. The handcoloured lithograph plates were made by F. Detollenaere, after drawings by Maubert (fl. 1840-1860)' (The Orchid observed, n. 16). Jean Linden (1817-1898) was a native of Luxembourg, who still a youth moved to Belgium, to which country he imported more than 1100 different orchid-species. Because of his important contributions to orchid literature, Linden received a number of commendations and honours, and many orchids were named after him. A beautifully bound and very clean copy. The last 5 leaves with tiny inkstain at the outer margin.Great Flower Books p. 65; Nissen BBI, 1196. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Britton & Rey's Map of the State of California

      Lithographed by Britton & Rey, San Francisco 1860 - Extremely rare map of California. George H. Goddard came to California in 1850. In 1855, he surveyed a part of the boundary between California and Utah Territory (now Nevada). He later surveyed for the Western Pacific Railroad and for John Charles Fremont. He also surveyed most of the important passes Sierra Nevada Mountains. Mount Goddard still bears the name of this important early surveyor. In 1855, Goddard compiled a manuscript map of California on a scale of two miles to the inch. The map was a remarkable improvement on the best available maps, so much so that Marlette, the State Surveyor General petitioned the California legislature to purchase Goddard's map, stating that nowhere else could so complete and extensive a map be obtained. After the legislature rejected the proposal, Goddard submitted a version of the manuscript to Britton & Rey, who lithographed and published it for the first time in 1857. Among its many distinctions, it was the first map to accurately locate Lake Tahoe (here Lake Bigler), derived from Goddard's own surveys in the Sierra Nevada. The map shows towns and settlements, trails, wagon roads, and county boundaries. Relief is indicated by hachures; numerous spot elevations are given; and physical features are named. The scale is 1 inch to 24 miles. Coverage includes the western half of Utah Territory and a northwestern corner of New Mexico Territory--- the area comprising the future State of Nevada. The wealth of information which now appears throughout California in the present 1860 edition (stated on the map as the third edition) graphically discloses the extent to which large portions of this vast and hitherto empty land had been peopled. Gold had swiftly done its work. The Goddard map is a fitting monument to the frenzied activity and achievements of the gold seekers, and with it the purely Gold Rush phase of California cartography comes to an end. No example of either the 1858 second edition or the 1860 third edition have apparently been offered on the market in the past half century; only the Thomas W. Streeter copy of the 1857 first edition has appeared on the market in that time period. An exceptionally rare and important California map. Gold Region, 302; Wheat, Transmississippi, 921; Heckrotte, California 49, 36; Streeter Sale, 2819; Phillips, America, p. 185. Lithographed map. Linen-backed. [Attributes: First Edition]

Le 86 tavole con le incisioni originali sono tutte presenti. Questi due volumi, pubblicati non molto tempo dopo i fatti raccontati, descrivono in dettaglio la rivolta delle truppe Indiane (Sepoy) al servizio della Compagnia Inglese delle Indie Orientali, una società privata per il commercio di beni e merci che ebbe, a partire dal 1784, il diritto di battere moneta, di avere truppe, di fare guerre e di esercitare la giurisdizione civile e militare in una vasta zona dell'India, allora colonia dell'Impero Britannico. La sanguinosa rivolta delle truppe indiane dei Sepoy scoppiò nell'aprile del 1857 e durò fino al luglio del 1858; vi furono moltissimi episodi di feroci massacri da parte dei soldati indiani, immediatamente seguiti dalle altrettanto feroci e sanguinarie ritorsioni e rappresaglie da parte degli Inglesi. Al termine di questa guerra incredibilmente cruenta, la Compagnia Inglese delle Indie Orientali venne abolita e il potere tornò alla corona Britannica.Le bellissime tavole incise su acciaio, tratte dai due tomi e raccolte in un contenitore a forma di volume, illustrano assai efficacemente luoghi, battaglie, personaggi e avvenimenti di questa guerra spietata: vi sono inoltre alcune cartine geografiche su due pagine affiancate.
