MORLEY, Henry. [1822-1894]
London, Chapman and Hall, 1861. First Edition. This copy is inscribed by Mr.Morley on the half title. Bound in publisher's embossed purple cloth faded to spine, titled and decorated in gilt to spine and front board. Light bumping and wear to extremities, fraying to head of spine and a small hole in the cloth midway down the spine panel. Pencil ownership to front flyleaf. Essentially a strong, solid copy of a charming little book of Victorian fairy tales, many of which lean strongly towards the surreal; including a particularly mental example where great attention is paid to decoding the message written on the back of a very talkative mackerel. Morley seems to have been responsible for dispensing potted education to every literate occupant of Victorian England. He was responsible for Morley's Universal Library, Cassell's National Library, and was the long time editor of Charles Dickens' Household Words to boot. He is said to have edited and written over three hundred volumes during the course of his distinguished career. We can only suppose that he knocked off this little collection of Carroll-esque bits and pieces in the quiet part of an afternoon when he wasn't learning the violin and translating Tacitus.

Item #28717 The author, born in Maine and who traveled to California in 1849 for the Gold Rush, has written a novel that, perhaps, mirrors his own personal story of a New Englander who comes to California during that tulmutuous time. Herein the reader finds much realistic detail employed depicting the protagonist's life as a miner & gambler, including a rather graphic account of a Mexican woman's hanging at Downieville in 1851, "an event that caused much distress throughout the state." Per Baird & Greenwood, one of the rarer works of 19th C. California fiction. [Attributes: First Edition]

[Lake, W(illiam) A.]
[Vicksburg, 1861. Broadside, 7 3/4 x 14 1/4". Light old folds. Printed in two columns, signed in type at the end by Lake and dated Vicksburg, August 13, 1861. Signed, 'Hon. W.A. Lake' in ink at the top blank margin. Very Good. Lake started out in the Border State of Maryland, graduated from Pennsylvania's Jefferson College, and then set up his law practice in Vicksburg. In pre-Confederate days, he was a Know-Nothing: he won a seat in Congress as such, and participated prominently in his Party's 1856 Convention, which nominated Millard Fillmore for President. Lake was not so lucky in this campaign: his opponent, Henry C. Chambers, killed him in a duel in October 1861. The subject of the duel is unclear: "...a difficulty occurred and a blow was given, and then a challenge." They fought with rifles at forty paces, each exchanging three shots. On the fourth, Lake fell dead. [Montgomery, Reminiscences of a Mississippian in Peace and War 82.] This unrecorded Confederate broadside asserts that "we have but one object, namely: to conquer a peace, and secure our national independence. Nor can there be any controversy as to the means necessary to obtain this end. War! War! is the only way. It will, therefore, be seen that there is no chance for party divisions and party issues." Calling for unity, he outlines his military, fiscal, and monetary policies. Not in Parrish & Willingham, Crandall, Owen, Sabin, Hummel, NUC, or on OCLC, the online site of the Library of Congress, AAS, or other online resources as of July 2017.

Bixio, Nino, italienischer Freiheitskämpfer und Kampfgenosse Giuseppe Garibaldis (1821-1873).
Paris, 12. IV. 1861.. ½ S. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo.. An eine Dame mit der Bitte um Verzeihung, daß er sie nicht habe aufsuchen können, doch sei sein Aufenthalt in Paris so kurz gewesen, daß ihm dafür keine Zeit geblieben wäre. Den von Frau Naselli an die Adressatin vorbereiteten Brief, der ihn hätte einführen sollen, lege er bei. - Nino Bixio war 1848 am Aufstand in Genua beteiligt gewesen und kämpfte dann in Venedig gegen die Österreicher; unter Garibaldi kämpfte er bei der Belagerung von Rom. Hernach wieder zur See gehend, kehrte er 1859 nach Italien zurück "und nahm wieder erfolgreich an den Aufständen teil. So ist der Sieg bei Volturno zu großen Teilen sein Verdienst. Nachdem Italien als Königreich errichtet wurde, behielt er seinen Rang als Generalleutnant, den er sich infolge seiner Tapferkeit erworben hatte. In diesem Rang nahm er am Krieg 1866 teil und nahm 1870 die Übergabe von Civitavecchia entgegen" (Wikipedia). Seit 1866 dem Abgeordnetenhaus angehörend, übernahm Bixio eine Vermittlerrolle zwischen Giuseppe Garibaldi und Camillo Cavour; 1870 wurde er von Viktor Emanuel II. in den Senat berufen. - Ohne den erwähnten Brief. - Die Verso-Seite von Bl. 2 mit kl. Registraturetikett und hs. Numerierung "34". - Sehr selten.

Illustrated with 12 (of 14) views, 8 color plates, 8 folding panoramas, 3 paleontology plates, 2 large folding maps, 1 profile, and many wood engravings in this, the desirable Senate issue. Farquhar 21: "one of the most desirable books in the Colorado River field, for it is the first that deals specifically with the river itself"; Flake 4287; Goetzmann, pp.379-394; Larned 412; Howes I-92; New Howes I-94 "c"; Paher 952; Sabin 35308; Wagner-Camp 375; Wheat(947), (948); Wallace, The Great Reconnaissance, p.175: "This is the most reliable and entertaining narrative of all the official reports by topographical engineers on Western explorations." Ives, commissioned to determine the navigability of the Colorado, was the first white man to explore much of its course, and this is the first government publication on the exploration of the Colorado River. Eminently readable with fine illustrations. The 8 color plates of Native Americans are outstanding. Lacks the views of Canebrake Canon and Camp Colorado Plateau, which seem never to have been bound in, as well as the two additional maps in the Geological section, which seem more often than not not to have been included. Pencil signature of G. P. Sewall on the title page, likely the Cayuga, N.Y. Presbyterian minister in the 1870s. A few of the plates have a dampstain in the corner which on occasion enters the image.

Dasent became interested in Scandinavian literature and his translation of the Njals Saga was completed in 1861 when Gudbrandr Vigfusson contributed a valuable introduction including material on religion, superstitions and the way of life of the Icelandic people.

An Feldzeugmeister Franz Graf Folliot de Crenneville-Poutet (1815-1888) mit der Bitte um Nachricht über das Ergehen Otto von Gemmingens, "der Sohn eines alten treuen Dieners und Freundes von mir [.] Da ich nun seit längerer Zeit nicht Gelegenheit hatte, etwas Näheres über ihn zu hören, so wollen Ew. Excellenz mir verstatten, mich mit der Bitte um einige Nachrichten über den jungen Mann an Sie zu wenden. Das Regiment Graf Civalart hat, wie mir bekannt ist, den italienischen Krieg mitgemacht. Es würde mir erfreulich sein zu hören, daß Herr von Gemmingen dadurch Gelegenheit bekommen, sich vor dem Feinde als ein tüchtiger Soldat zu zeigen [.]". - Nach dem frühen Tod seines Vaters Herzog Georg I. folgte Bernhard diesem 1803 unter der Vormundschaft seiner Mutter Louise Eleonore in der Regierung und übernahm dieselbe 1821. Drei Jahre später ließ er die unter die Garantie des Deutschen Bundes gestellte verbesserte landständische Verfassung in Kraft treten. Nach dem Aussterben der Linie Sachsen-Gotha-Altenburg vereinigte er mit dem am 12. November 1826 geschlossenen Teilungsvertrag das Herzogtum Sachsen-Hildburghausen, das Fürstentum Saalfeld, das Amt Themar, die Grafschaft Kamburg und die Herrschaft Kranichfeld mit seinem Erbland und gab 23.

He is particularly known for his works on philosophy.] This book is a work of philosophical perspective on Jewish scholarship and Jewish life. It's also the Rebbe's effort to defend the Maimondian, a 12th century sephardic philosophical work called Moreh N'vuchim -"Guide to the Perplexed". In the 12th century philosophy was very important in real life, but by the 15th century, people didn't look at life from a philosophical perspective as much as the Aristotelian laws were no longer absolute.)

Well used, well rubbed and generally soiled but interior text is better though some mis-folds and some age-toning. Overall F+.. Fair+. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Hebrew.

Inocuous thin strip of dirt to plates #18, 21, 22, 37, 44, 47, and 57. Minor tears to tp else VG; scarce title found in few libraries and fewer architectural firms even in France. Excellent architectural renderings of medieval French facades including chateaux throughout the country, some with people in streets, alleys, streams, etc. French titles and text. Rear foxing appears on several but without effect to front. #54 is chipped along the fore-edge. Foxing also extends to the title page, half title page and the 4-page accompanying booklet of plate recognition. A marvellous overview of the better castles (some in ruins) for this 200-year period.

Il hésite à l'encourager dans sa démarche. «Je vis, il est vrai, extrêmement renfermé ou alors en pleine nature, et voyage ; j'ai vu tomber tant de vaillants soldats, j'ai compris, à ma vive douleur, l'inanité de tant de beaux efforts que je suis peu encourageant, car il m'est impossible de donner aux autres un courage que, trop souvent, je ne sens plus en moi-même [.]».

CURRIER & IVES, publishers. - Charles PARSONS (1821-1910)
New York: Currier & Ives, 1861. Hand-coloured lithograph signature in image, "C. Parsons". Image size: 17 x 27 1/2 inches. Sheet size: 20 1/4 x 29 inches. Various expert repairs. A spectacular Currier & Ives portrait of the beautiful but unfortunate "Australasian": the Cunard Line's "first iron screw mail steamer ... [and] the worst vessel that the company ever owned". The Australasian was built in Clydebank, Scotland, in 1857, "at a time when auxiliaries [vessels with both steam and sail power available to them] were much in favour and when she was regarded as a magnificent vessel" (India House p.63). She was a 338-foot iron screw steamer, designed to carry mail for the European and Australian Royal Mail Company, with two smokestacks and three masts. "the company for which she was built did not last very long, and she was purchased by the Cunard Line [initially called the British and North American Royal Mail Steam Ship Company], in whose fleet she was the first screw mail steamer. They adapted her to their requirements ... but she was never a success. It was often said that she was the worst vessel that the company ever owned, for although a remarkable fast ship in smooth water, she rolled like a barrel when it was rough, and her vibration was excessive" (India House pp.63-4). Charles Parsons, British born, spent most of his long life in America creating superb marine prints and paintings. Much of his print work was published by the two major New York lithography firms: Currier & Ives and Endicott & Co. His ship portraits are among the finest of the era and … [Click Below for Full Description]

Chicago. 1861.. vii,[1],134pp. plus frontispiece, plates, and errata leaf. Original cloth, rebacked. Some scattered soiling and foxing. Manuscript note on frontis. Else quite good. Clark was a Chicago physician who went to Colorado to prospect for gold in 1860, without success. He describes in detail the frontier town and expresses distaste with some of its aspects, such as the gambling, crime, and language. His narrative is considered to be one of the few authentic and truthful accounts of life and travel in Colorado of the day. The plates offer many fine illustrations of Denver and other western towns. "One of the best of the few contemporary accounts of the Pike's Peak gold rush..." - Wilcox. "[Clark's] is one of the few authentic accounts of that year's travel to the Rockies" - Wagner-Camp.

Hebra, Ferdinand v.
Allg. Wien. med. Ztg., 6/43+44 - Wien 1861, Folio, pp.351-366. Broschur. Ferdinand Ritter von Hebra (1816-1880), "erfand auch das Wasserbett zur Behandlung von Verbrennungsopfern. Hebra berichtete 1861 erstmals "ueber continuirliche allgemeine Bäder und deren Anwendung bei der Behandlung von Verbrennungen". Wunden oder Geschwüre unter Wasser oder mit einem "continuirlichen Wasserstrom" zu behandeln war damals nicht neu. Einige Chirurgen verwendeten diese therapeutische Maßnahme bereits seit geraumer Zeit routinemäßig. Neu war die von Hebra vorgeschlagene Anwendung von Allgemeinbädern zu Heilzwecken über Tage, Wochen oder sogar Monate. Auf die Idee kam Hebra durch die Beobachtung, dass "Blatternefflorescenzen an den continuirlich befeuchteten" Schleimhäuten nur zu oberflächlichen Exkoreationen führen und "nie weder einen eitrigen Inhalt zeigen, noch in die Tiefe greifen und ulceriren . während - wie jeder weiss - die allgemeine Decke so häufig der Sitz lang bestehender, tief greifender Pusteln und selbst jauchender Geschwüre wird". Auch bemerkte er, dass völlig unterschiedliche Heilmittel - warme Umschläge, kalte Umschläge, Öl, Lebertran, Glycerin, Seifen, "Theer", Blei-, Quecksilber-, Borax-, jodhaltige Salben - egal, ob "von dieser oder jener ärztlichen Coryphäe oder aber von einem alten Weibe bereitet und applicirt", bei denselben Hauterkrankungen Heilung brachten. Er kam zu der der damaligen Vorstellung entsprechenden Ansicht, dass die Wirkung dieser Mittel einzig und allein über die Mazeration (Aufweichung) der Epidermis zur Heilung führte. Durch Mazeration der Brandsch … [Click Below for Full Description]

[Zur Lehre vom Ortsinne der Netzhaut, Vom Horopter, etc.] 5 pts. in l vol., 8vo. 80; iv, [2], [81]-170; iv, [2], [171]-224; vi, [2], [225]-286, [2]; vi, [2], [287]-358pp. Text illustrations. 231 x 147 mm. Half morocco. A little light dampstaining & foxing, but a very good copy. Leipzig: Engelmann, 1861-64. FIRST EDITION. Early in his career Hering "mastered the difficult problem of visual space perception and was able to challenge the great master in that field, Hermann von Helmholtz, proposing alternate views that emphasized the physiological rather than the physical aspects of sensation. . . . In 1861-64 Hering published a five-part study on visual space perception in which he favored the nativistic theory, arguing that each point of the retina is endowed with three local signs: one for height, one for breadth, and one for depth. Thus he found himself in opposition to Helmholtz and other empiricists, who believed that location and space forms are learned and arise with continued experience. In this treatise Hering was concerned mainly with binocular vision, the identical points of the two retinas, and the horopter"(D.S.B.) With this kind of research, Hering exerted a tremendous influence on contemporary sense physiology and on the development of modern psychology, Gestalt in particular. See Garrison-Morton 1515, Hering's theory of color sense, worked out in the 1870's. Not in Becker or Waller. [Attributes: First Edition]
