Lincoln, Abraham; Lincoln, Mary Todd
Philadelphia, 1861. One single sheet of paper, measuring 6" x 9", with an Abraham Lincoln Autograph Note Signed, dated Philadelphia, February 21, 1861. In addition there is the signature of Mary Todd Lincoln Signature, dated Philadelphia, May 11. The text in full: "Philadelphia, Feb. 21, 1861. / Mrs. James E. D. Stevens / My dear Madam / Below is my autograph according to your request. / Yours truly / A. Lincoln." Mary Todd Lincoln signs directly beneath: "Mary Lincoln / Philadelphia May 11th."; The recipient adds a note: "[Written by President Lincoln and Mrs. Lincoln, when the former was on his way to Washington to be inaugurated the first time. The inauguration took place March 4th.]" Mrs. James E. D. Stevens was the wife of the Rev. James E. D. Stevens, a prominent Philadelphia clergyman. The signature was purportedly obtained at a dinner by prominent Philadelphians. Lincoln stayed in Philadelphia and gave a speech on the 22nd, then after a visit to Harrisburg he left secretly with Pinkerton to Washington DC to avoid a potential assassination attempt in Baltimore. It is reasonable to assume that Mary Todd Lincoln's signature was added to the page on may 11 when she and Mrs. Stevens visited a location unknown.; The left edge of the page is a bit rough, in that it was removed from an autograph album; the paper is gently toned, a bit darker at the edges; shelved case 0 or 5.

BROSSET, Marie-Félicité.
Academie Impériale de Science St. Petersburg, 1861. Atlas only, 2 parts in one volume, oblong folio (27.8 x 35.5 cm). Title of the II livraison published as general title for the atlas, XLV plates lith. by Rob. Mellin. Contemporary cream boards, upper board with gilt ruling and gilt centrepiece with the word ANI surrounded by crosses and scallop shells, green paper spine; rubbed and soiled, hinges broken, marginal waterstain on upper board and first ten plates. Very rare atlas showing views of the ancient Armenian capital known as "the city of a thousand and one churches". Ani, founded more than 1,600 years ago, was the capital of the Bagratid Armenian kingdom between 961 and 1045, which covered much of present-day Armenia and eastern Turkey. It greatly benefited from its location on several trade routes, and grew to become a walled city of more than 100,000 residents by the 11th century. In the centuries that followed, Ani and the surrounding region were conquered hundreds of times - Byzantine emperors, Ottoman Turks, Armenians, nomadic Kurds, Georgians, and Russians claimed and reclaimed the area, repeatedly attacking and chasing out residents. By the 1300s, Ani was in steep decline, and it was completely abandoned by the 1700s. Rediscovered and romanticised in the 19th century, the city had a brief moment of fame, only to be closed off by World War I. Russian investigation of Ani began in the 1840s when the city attracted the attention of Earl Mikhail Vorontsov, the governor of the Caucasus in 1844-1854. In 1850 Vorontsov dispatched an officer of the Russian army Jules K … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dequevauviller, Théophane, kath. Priester u. Generalvikar des Patriarchen von Jerusalem (1811-1864).
Paris, Jerusalem u. Beirut, 1857-1861. Dequevauviller, der neben seiner Muttersprache Französisch auch noch Latein, Griechisch, Persisch, Arabisch und Kurdisch sprach, lernte in Persien, wo er 25 Jahre unterrichtete, Bischof Valerga, den Patriarchen von Jerusalem kennen, dessen Generalvikar er später werden sollte. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr.

Ce premier catalogue est très rare, mais l'intérêt de ce remarquable exemplaire tient essentiellement au fait qu'il ait été très largement interfolié et annoté à l'époque, d'une écriture précise, par un expert ou un amateur très informé (non identifié mais les initiales H.B. poussées en queue pourront donner une piste). Les annotations manuscrites décrivent de façon minutieuse un grand nombre de pièces décrites trop sommairement dans le catalogue. Nous joignons la liste des résultats de l'enchère. Etat très satisfaisant (2 ff. débrochés, rel. un peu frottée)

A échappé à Sabin. Édition originale.Importante étude sur les conséquences respiratoires des dépressions et des hyperpressions atmosphériques naturelles. Le chapitre III étudie les altitudes de l'Amérique méridionale, le chapitre IV le Mexique. Un autre chapitre, très important, concerne les expériences effectuées par l'auteur avec Paul Bert.Jourdanet exerça la médecine en Amérique centrale et en particulier au Mexique, où il étudia l'influence de l'altitude sur la constitution médicale. Il publia dès 1861 les résultats de ses premières observations.Au milieu du XIXe siècle, les premières ascensions en haute montagne ainsi que les ascensions en ballon à des altitudes élevées, firent ressentir le besoin d'étudier de manière plus approfondie l'influence de l'altitude sur l'homme. Jourdanet et Paul Bert travaillèrent de concert sur ce sujet: c'est grâce à la généreuse intervention de Jourdanet que Paul Bert put faire installer dans son laboratoire de physiologie de la Sorbonne deux vastes appareils cylindriques dans lesquels il pouvait à volonté faire le vide ou comprimer l'air.Les deux savants avaient pensé un moment publier en commun les résultats de leurs recherches, "mais la réflexion nous fit bientôt voir que l'exécution … [Click Below for Full Description]

A few signed by Carrington, most from Carrington are likely secretarial, one item is on blue paper, one item is a mostly printed document. Some staining and other wear, a few tears at folds, generally good to very good. Revealing glimpse into the Civil War service of Henry B. Carrington, to gain later fame in the post-war "Indian Fighting Army." Henry B. Carrington 1824-1912) was an army officer and author, was born in Wallingford, Connecticut. According to American National Biography Online (ANB), while Carrington had a strong interest in the military, poor health prevented him from entering West Point. Instead, he entered Yale College in 1840, and graduated in 1845. Carrington moved to Columbus, Ohio, in 1848 and took up the practice of law. He enjoyed success in his legal career and also played an important role in founding the Republican party in Ohio. Friendship with prominent Republicans, notably Governors, brought him a position with the state militia and in 1857 he was appointed adjutant general. The ANB indicates that at the outbreak of the Civil War, Carrington quickly organized nine regiments of Ohio militia and sent them across the Ohio River to help secure western Virginia against the secessionists. He was commissioned as colonel of the newly created Eighteenth U.S. Infantry. In November 1862 he was promoted to brigadier general of volunteers and, continuing in his role as recruiter and organizer of troops.

WALRAS, Léon.
Paris: Guillaumin et Cie, 1861 - Octavo. Original green paper wrappers printed in black. Housed in a recent dark green quarter morocco solander box. Pencil marginalia to a couple of pages. Backstrip with three vertical splits, sewing still intact, wrappers slightly dust-soiled and with a few tiny chips, minor marking to title, the occasional faint finger mark to fore margins. A very good copy. First and only edition of Walras's second published book on economics and an important early testimonial to his profound admiration for, and intellectual identification with, his father. In the lengthy preface, he reviews the ideas contained in the works of Auguste Walras, including the concept of "rareté" which was to influence Walras's formulation of marginal utility, and then relates this intellectual patrimony to his own essay on taxation which follows a discussion of the international congress on taxation in Lausanne in 1860.

Bookplates of two former owners (Charles Goddard Weld; Alfred Heacock Whittaker) on front pastedown and on front flyleaf. Very Good. First Edition. In his Autobiography, Gross describes this work: "At the outbreak of the war I wrote a little Manual of Military Surgery, a kind of pocket companion for the young surgeons who were flocking to the army, and who for the most part were ill prepared for the prompt and efficient discharge of their duties. I was composed in nine days, and published in a fortnight from the time of its inception. . . . The work embraced in outline the whole subject of military surgery and hygiene. . . . It was republished at Richmond, and was extensively cited by the Confederate surgeons during the war. This little book was far more profitable to me, in a commercial point of view, considering the time and labor bestowed upon it, than any other of my productions. A translation of it in Japanese appeared at Tokio in 1874" (Vol. I, pp. 142-43). Rutkow GS49. Freemon, Microbes and Minie Balls, pp. 61-62. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
