Like Malgaigne (Gurlt) hand an interest in the history of surgery covering the period from antiquity to the Renaissance is still an standard reference. Gurlt's handbook on the treatment of fractures presents an exhaustive and detailed view of the literature on the subject, so as a source of obscure and arcane information it is unsurpassed.

        Kokon shinsei Meika hiroku [trans.: Secret Text of New Recipes for Famous Sweets New & Old]

      Two double-page woodcuts, nine full-page woodcuts, & several smaller woodcut illus. in the text. 58 folding leaves; 50 folding leaves. Two vols. Small 8vo, orig. blue wrappers, orig. title labels on upper covers, new stitching. Kyoto: 1862. First edition and very rare; no copy of this edition in WorldCat. "The largest writing on confectionery published in the early modern period, the two-volume Secret Text of New Recipes for Famous Sweets New and Old (Kokon shinsei meika hiroku), printed in 1862, contains an extensive selection of mochi recipes with fanciful names including Divination Rod Rice Cakes (sangi mochi), Whale Meat Cakes, uiro mochi (a soft sweet made from rice flour, brown sugar and kudzu starch, which resembled a cough medicine by the same name), Bracken Flour Cakes (tsukeko mochi), Sorghum Cakes, Brocade-Chinese Rice Cakes (nishikito mochi), Grilled Wheat Gluten Cakes, Chestnut-Flour Cakes, Tangerine Cakes (cakes made from rice flour dyed orange with gardenia and formed into tire shape of tangerines), and Grass Cakes made from rice infused with mug-wort, to name a few of the recipes."-Eric Rath in The Routledge History of Food (ed. C. Helstosky), online. This work is most attractively illustrated. The double-page woodcut in Vol. I depicts a store front of a successful confectioner, with a board advertising several types of merchandise including "Edo Sato zuke" ("Edo foods preserved in sugar"), products which are still sold in Tokyo (several of which - gourds, pumpkins, bamboo shoots, eggplant, and citrus fruits - are illustrated in a woodcut in Vol. II). Other woodcuts depict storage containers for different types of sugar, a man at a tea ceremony enjoying tea and sweets, a picnic at the seashore with sweets, children eating sweets, making the sweets by putting the mixed ingredients in wooden molds, a wonderful double-page view of Kyoto, fancy containers to serve the sweets, a scene at the café, serving sweets to dignitaries, seasonal patterns for sweets, etc. One leaf with faint dampstaining, but a fine copy.

        Rescue of Tula 1863 Almanac

      [New York: B.L. Judson 50 Leonard Street, 1862. Illustrated. [24] pp. Yellow pictorial wrappers. Small corner of back lower wrapper missing, with loss of a few words of text. Illustrated. [24] pp. A Rare Patent Medicine Almanac. Originally printed in 1859 by the same publisher, the almanac recounts the story of the "wealthy herbalist, Dr. Cunard who, with a trapper named Du Bois or Hawk Eye, spent seven years trapping and travelling throughout the Far West. The doctor had a number of unusual experiences, not the least of which was his single-handed defiance of the Navajo Tribe as they were about to burn Tula, the Aztec princess, at the stake. This was accomplished by capitalizing on the fortuitous imminence of a total eclipse, of which the good doctor knew after consulting his handy little almanac. The Navajo chief was as confounded as Merlin in an earlier day and promptly gave up not only Tula but also his secret mountain-herb recipe. A trapper's testimonial direct from St. Louis concludes this 'True Account'" - Eberstadt 127: 215. The "Rescue of Tula" almanac appearas to have been published from 1860-1863. Worldcat locates one copy of this 1863 Almanac at Univ. of Rochester Medical Center

        Autograph Letter Signed ("Matthew Arnold"), to J A Froude, regarding Maurice de Guérin

      2 Chester Square [London], 1862. 1 page. 8vo. Very faint mount marks at corners. 1 page. 8vo. On Guérin: "...he has a true genius" Arnold writes to the editor of Fraser's Magazine, James Anthony Froude (1818-1894), regarding the manuscript of his essay on the then very little known French poet Maurice de Guérin: "I came yesterday to see you and was very sorry indeed to miss you. I had the Mss of Maurice de Guérin. I think you will be interested in him - he has a true genius - literarily speaking a far truer one than Clough. You should have had the Mss on Saturday but I had compassion on the printer and made a fair copy for him: the labour of doing this has been so grievous that I think I should not have had the good nature undertake it had I known what it was." The manuscript would have been for Arnold's essay "A Modern French Poet," which appeared in Fraser's in January 1863 and was republished as "Maurice de Guérin" in his seminal collection Essays in Criticism (1865). Guérin (1810-1839) was a French poet best known for his prose poem "Le Centaur"; none of his works was published during his lifetime, and Arnold's writings were among the first in English about him. Arthur Hugh Clough was Arnold's friend and fellow poet who had died the year before.

      Mervill [sic, i.e. Maryville], Mo, 1862. [4]pp. autograph letter, signed, on a folded folio sheet of ruled paper, folded once, with an engraved vignette of Camp Benton in the upper third of the first page. Old folds. A bit of soiling. Ink a bit faded, but still readable. About very good. A very interesting letter from a Union soldier, written on a pictorial letter sheet, giving a description of Camp Benton, Missouri during the Civil War. Established as a training ground, Camp Benton could accommodate 30,000 soldiers, and was initially commanded by John C. Fremont, and then for a time by William Tecumseh Sherman (including the time when this letter was written). This letter was written by Philip P. Smith, a soldier in the 47th Regiment Illinois Volunteers, to his wife Sarah (it is addressed simply, "Dear Companion") on a pictorial letter sheet produced by the St. Louis firm of A. McLean. The vignette shows Camp Benton from the far end of the parade yard, with the camp headquarters at the far end, and the yard ringed with one-story barracks and the yard with tents and with soldiers marching or on horseback. In the text of the letter Smith describes Camp Benton and the letter sheet view at length and in detail. He explains that the vignette shows only a part of the camp, and that it is so large that "they can't draw all of the barracks at once." He writes (in part, and with spelling corrected): "This view of it shows the headquarters of the generals very plainly, but colonels headquarters can't be seen....These tents is used as guard houses. You can see the sentinels standing at their posts guarding prisoners in them tents! These others is ones out drilling in small squads. These men on horseback that looks small is a cavalry drill. These six men that you see riding up to one another looks like the generals' staff....These buildings that you see over the top of the barracks is cook houses. Every one of them buildings is calculated for 200 men to cook in so you can see how many men can cook on a side." Smith goes on to give more details of the camp, relating them to the view in the vignette. The tents that he describes were apparently used to house captured Missouri guerilla fighters. A scarce view of a Missouri Civil War camp, with a very interesting letter from a Union soldier who was there and fought in the western theatre during the Civil War.

        Orley Farm . . . With illustrations by J. E. Millais

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1862. Complete in two octavo volume: viii,320; viii,320pp, with 40 full-page wood-engraved plates that Trollope considered the "best he had seen 'in any novel in any language.'" (Ray) Contemporary green polished half-calf spines in six compartments divided by double gilt rules, marble paper-covered boards, red morocco lettering pieces gilt, edges speckled red. Short tear (repaired) to plate opposite p. 49, vol. I. Ink manuscript name and date (1863) to fly leaf of voI II, with same inscription upside down to back fly leaf of vol. I, as well as a further ink name and date (1890) inscribed to front blank. A truly excellent set, bindings square, tight, and barely worn; pages clean, fresh and mostly free of foxing; plates in deep, rich impressions. Sadleir Trollope 13. NCBEL III, 882. Ray England 168. ¶ Trollope considered this lengthy book, a version of the crime, or "sensation," novel in vogue during the 1860s, one of his most ambitious undertakings and possibly his finest work. It is also among the most bibliographically complex. Unusually, the two volumes were not published simultaneously but nearly ten months apart, and subsequent reissues of each volume did not proceed in step. In consequence, Sadleir proposes that the "numerous combinations of varying volumes which exist are due, not always to careless mixing of sets between 1862 and the present day, but often to circumstances of publication." Orley farm originally appeared in twenty shilling parts, published monthly from March 1861 to October 1862. Our set is the second issue of four, identified by the two illustrations originally bound in tandem between pp. 86-87 (first issue) in vol. I, one of which (that captioned "And then they all marched . . .") has been moved to face p. 73 (though the List of Illustrations was not altered to correspond). But the printer's imprint on verso of title page, vol. I, has not yet changed to Clowes H and the imprint on p. 320 (Clowes B) is not worn and broken, both third issue points. Correspondingly, in vol. II, the printer's imprint on verso of title page does not lack the colon after "London" and the last item of the List of Illustrations has not been altered to read "Sir Peregrine Orme's Great Love--p. 311" (both third issue points). "Millais's main effort is to do justice to the characters of Trollope's wonderfully rich and varied novel and to the situations in which they find themselves, yet the comfort, even elegance, of Victorian existence on the right side of the social line is nowhere more attractively presented than in his forty drawing for this novel." (Ray) N. B. With few exceptions (always identified), we only stock books in exceptional condition. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Near Fine+.

        Les Miserables (in 5 volumes)

      New York: Carleton, Publisher, 1862. First American edition. Very Good +. An attractive set of Hugo's masterpiece. All volumes Very Good + to Near Fine in original green cloth. Spines with slight fraying and loss (worst on Cosette with a small repaired chip), otherwise untouched. Internal contents generally in excellent condition with cracking to the rear hinge of the first two books (still holding well). Some volumes with early owner's written name or bookplate. Translated by Charles Wilbour immediately upon the release of the French edition, the first book was released in June of 1862 with monthly parts coming out through October. The first British edition, by contrast was released in three volumes all in October of 1862 (translated by Lascelles Wraxall). Widely regarded as one of the greatest novels of the 19th century, although contemporary reviews were mixed. Hugo's massive work follows the struggles of ex-convict, Jean Valjean, as he seeks spiritual redemption, despite the past ever following upon his heels. It is a social commentary not just on modern France, but upon all communities where there is crime, hunger, poverty and injustice. Moreover, Hugo inserts his own commentaries throughout the work, whether they relate to the current action or not. Successfully adapted to the screen and the stage, most recently by Tom Hooper in 2012 for Universal Pictures. A work that speaks across time and place and continues to touch and inspire its readers. Very Good +.

        Flindersland and Sturtland; or, The Inside and Outside of Australia

      London, Richard Bentley, 1862. Octavo, two volumes, viii, 289 and x, 322 pages with a full-page plan (page 302). Contemporary full calf binding by Zaehnsdorf (gilt-ruled borders on the covers, with contrasting leather title-labels on the heavily gilt-tooled spines); all edges marbled; leather lightly rubbed at the extremities; an excellent set. Inscribed on an initial binder's blank to 'John Henry Mossop, With the best wishes of Dacres T.C. Belgrave, on his leaving Eton, Election 1865'. Belgrave, watercolourist and soldier, was a schoolmate of Mossop's at Eton. An adventurous tourist's travels in Australia in the late 1850s and early 1860s ('A detailed description of the South Eastern part of Australia, including station properties, social conditions, travel, aborigines, etc.' according to Ferguson), but there is much more ... In the second volume (pages 233-50) Jessop records meeting two men at Wilpena 'on their way back to Adelaide, with the results of a private exploration.... The leader, or scout, was named Giles, who was engaged by Mole, a man of more energy than money, to assist him in opening up some new part ... [They] finally left the known country at Angipena, and entered upon the unknown in the direction of north-west ... They were absent about a month from Angipena, and altogether, going and coming, passed over 1,200 miles'. The meeting is recorded in some detail, not least regarding contact with the Aborigines ('Giles said he was the first person in the Colony that vaccinated a black, and that it happened on this occasion'). Wantrup notes that this expedition 'does not appear to be elsewhere recorded and dates at least ten years before Giles's career became a matter of public record. Jessop supplies no precise date, but from the context it is clear that the expedition took place in the first half of 1859'. Wantrup, pages 264-7; not in McLaren; see Ferguson 10938-41.

        Yokohama Kaiko Kenbushi [A Record of the Sights and Sounds of the Opening of Yokohama].

      Yokohama, [1862]. Volumes one and two [of three], large 8vo. Original grey-blue wrappers, block-book binding, printed lettering pieces to front covers, custom-made modern flexible folder; 19 and 21 double-leaves with numerous woodcuts (including a bird's-eye view of Yokohama), one hand-coloured woodcut of an assemblage of Western flags and the Japanese rising sun as paste-down in volume one; stitching renewed, wrappers lightly spotted in places, lettering-pieces a little rubbed, lower cover of volume two with old Western label; otherwise well-preserved and clean internally.

Utagawa (1807-1873) was the most eminent pupil of Kunisada and worked prolifically under several studio names. He was among the Japanese artists to exhibit at the Paris Exposition in 1866 and is celebrated for his Yokohama imagery showing the cavorting Westerners, sometimes drunk in the streets of the growing international port city, Black Ships, Americans playing pool, enjoying pastime in the parlour, men and women galloping around town, traders and their outlandish habits and outfits.

        Somewhere in the Hills

      [South Australia], 1862. Title from artist's caption. Ink wash on wove paper, 90 x 160 mm; signed and dated lower right 'Wm. Wyatt J[unior] d[epinxit]. 1862.'; in good condition, with a tiny spot of restoration to the outline of the hill at upper left; mounted in a recent glazed timber frame. William Wyatt, sketcher, watercolourist and lithographer, was born in the Colony of South Australia in 1838, the son of William Wyatt (Senior), surgeon, landowner and public servant (1804-1886) and his wife Julia, née Matthews. In spite of his short career - he died in 1872 at the age of 33 or 34 - a number of examples of William Wyatt Junior's work have survived, most notably a group of pen and ink drawings contained in a sketchbook dated 1857, which is held in the National Library of Australia. A handful of other works, including individual watercolours and lithographs, are held in the National Library of Australia, State Library of South Australia and State Library of New South Wales. Wyatt's highly competent bucolic drawing Somewhere in the Hills presumably depicts a scene in the Adelaide Hills, a short distance to the east of the young settlement.

Er wurde 1832 eingebürgert, arbeitete als Korrespondent sowie als Herausgeber der `Encyclopaedia Americana`, ging 1835 als Professor der Geschichte und Politischen Ökonomie ans South Carolina College. \"Mit seinen Schriften wurde L. im eigentlichen Sinne zum Begründer der Politischen Wissenschaft in den USA, widmete sich aber auch Problemen des Strafrechts, der Gefängnisreform und anderen praktischen Aufgaben.. Ungeachtet eines gewissen persönlichen Opportunismus spielte dabei die Sklavereifrage, insoweit sie die nationale Einheit sprengte, eine zunehmende Rolle in L.s Denken, so daß er (auch wegen persönlicher Zurücksetzungen) seine Professur am S. C. College aufgab und 1857 nach New York ging. Hier erhielt er noch im gleichen Jahr den Lehrstuhl für Geschichte und Politikwissenschaft, von dem er 1865 in die Columbia Law School überwechselte; doch war er als Lehrer wenig erfolgreich. Der Bürgerkrieg steigerte L.s Nationalismus bis zur Mißachtung der Bundesverfassung, so daß er selbst dubiose Maßnahmen der Regierung und des Kongresses guthieß. Um Übergriffe in Feindesland verhüten zu helfen, entwarf er 1863 auf Veranlassung des Generalstabschefs H. W. Halleck für die Unionstruppen die erste umfassende Dienstanweisung für die Landkriegführung (General Orders No. 100), die 1870 auch von Preußen übernommen wurde und dann als Grundlage des modernen Kriegsrechts diente. L. war ein Parteigänger des Präs. Lincoln und Befürworter einer harschen Reconstruction-Politik gegenüber den Südstaaten, vertrat aber in den Nachkriegsjahren wieder einen sozialkonservativen politischen Kurs .. hatte fraglos bedeutende Verdienste durch seine Verschmelzung europäischen politischen Gedankengutes mit der amerikan.

        Colton's Map of the War in Virginia, Showing Minutely the interesting localities in the Vicinity of Richmond.

      New York, Colton, 1862. Hand-coloured steel-engraved map (510 x 480 mm), dissected into 8 segments and linen-backed, light wear to corners and minimal spotting. A rare and beautiful Civil War map showing the area from Washington DC right into North Carolina. The district of Congress is coloured in pink, as issued; however, the region north of the Charles River near Haxall and Watkins has been outlined in colour as well. The map shows as well some fortifications and points of strategic interest. In 1862, when map was published, America was at its most divided and in the violent throes of Civil War (1861-1865). Between 1831 and 1890, the Colton firm dominated American map publishing, and their atlases were the finest produced in the U.S. during the nineteenth century. The company was founded by Joseph Hutchins Colton (1800-1893), who had no formal training in geography or cartography; he began by purchasing copyrights of maps prepared by other individuals or companies, and his principal role was to manage the production and distribution of the maps.

        Civil War Correspondence sent by a member of the 165th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers during its defense of the Chesapeake Bay while stationed in Suffolk, Virginia

      Suffolk, Virginia 8211 - This collection contains six letters (13 Dec 62, 31 Jan 63, 14 Feb 63, 17 Apr 63, 18 Apr 63, 2 May 63) by Private Samuel D. Reck, a member of the 165th Regiment Pennsylvania Volunteers, to his wife, Hannah, in Harney, Pennsylvania, and the postal envelope that was used to mail two of them. The letters vary in size and have a total of 22 handwritten pages. One of the letters is written on a patriotic lettersheet commemorating the Battle of Antietam. The 3-cent pink-on-buff postal envelope (Scott #U35) is cancelled with a blue circular handstamp that reads "NORFOLK/ APR 19 / Va". The letters and envelope are in nice shape; the envelope is a little rough along the right edge were it was opened. Shortly after the 165th was organized in November 1862 at a camp near Gettysburg, it was ordered to the front and deployed to Suffolk, Virginia via Newport News. At Suffolk, it set up defensive lines protect the southwester approach to Portsmouth, Norfolk, and the Chesapeake Bay along with, eventually, four other regiments that were formed into the First Division of the Union Army's Seventh Corps. The sector was initially quiet until 29 Jan 63 when the Confederate forces crossed the Blackwater River into southeast Virginia. The Union forces quickly reacted and the Union command dispatched a regimental task force (which included Reck's company) to drive the drive the Confederates south. The forces met at a place known as Deserted House, and the southerners were routed with alternating attacks by Union Cavalry and Infantry. Later in April, a Southern force led by General Longstreet and numbering at least 40,000 men approached once more, this time laying siege to Suffolk. The Confederates launched a number of probing sorties against the defenses that precipitated Union sallies-the most significant of which was made by the 165th-in response. Foraging became the order of the day for the southerners as the siege ground on for the next month before Longstreet realized the futility of his effort and retreated toward Petersburg. Reck, a very religious man, chronicled the defense of Suffolk in letters sent home to his wife, and it is interesting how they dovetail with official accounts of the defense: 13 Dec - "as it has been the will of the lord to land me on the banks of the James river we had the pleasure of holding a prair meeting on the Steam boat as we Sailed down the water . . . we now are encamped on his way to Ritchmond we are now about Seventy five miles fom Ritchmond there are about thirty thousand men encamp around us and mor comming ever day it is Just thick with tents and alive with people" 31 Jan - "we had another tramp after the rebbles and we caut them this time on thursday night at ten oclock . . . our company and company A was take out with too other regiments we was marched out about Sevene or eight miles till our cavalry cout the rebble pickets and drove them in and so we marched on till we got to the next and the cavalry drove them in we then marched on till we got to the next and the cavalry captured some off them and drove the rest of them in to buck horn station but then i tell you that we soon herd the elephant growl he mad a terrible noise for about too hours the balls and shells flew over our heads and the pieces flew in every direction . . . we then got reinforcement and . . . and after some heavy firing drove the rebbles back over the black water again . . .

        1862 highly important illustrated Oregon Wilderness History, 1st Applegate trail-maker tells of and draws life in the west!

      Siskiyou Mountains, Oregon, May 25 - June 1, 1862. 7.75" x 9.875". "Oliver Applegate of Applegate Trail discusses bear, salmon, wolves, and "polatics" in Ashland, Oregon in 1862 -- outstanding content and drawings!4pp of unlined cream paper inscribed in Applegate's delicate script and embellished with over thirty miniature drawings and poems, and many interesting examples of phonetic spelling. Letter begun on Sunday, May 25, 1862 and continued on Sunday, June 2, 1862 and addressed to "Harriet Applegate, Yoncalla, Umpqua County, Oregon" from "You Efectionate Cousin O.C. Applegate" in the Siskiyou Mountains near Ashland, Jackson County, Oregon. In very fine condition, with expected wear including folds. Minor loss to paper edge on two of four pages. Each page measures 7.75" x 9.875".Oliver Cromwell Applegate (1842-1938), a seventeen-year-old teacher-in-training, pens a light-hearted letter to his younger cousin Harriet Applegate (1845-1862). The cousins exchanged unique hand-illustrated letters decorated with "paintings" that delighted each other and other readers. This way of corresponding through "'sketchicism' and 'emaginatinism'", as Applegate called it, was unconventional to say the least. At the close of his letter, Applegate writes, "I have you will discover attempted some illustrations - if they are not according to the rules to be followed in letter writing, you will of course excuse both me and them". Applegate scatters over thirty minutely detailed drawings of figures and vignettes throughout the text of his four handwritten pages. His drawings include human figures like Indians, settlers, tumblers, and messengers, but also many animals like whales, owls, bulls, and bees. In some contexts, Applegate's drawings function as rebuses, but in others, they interrupt lines and adorn blank spaces. Two patriotic poems, studies of soldiers and admirals, and an incredibly detailed drawing of his mountain homestead illustrate the end of Applegate's letter. "I have here attempted a hasty 'hen't' ink sketch of the Toll House + vacinaty but it don't suit me - The New House (A) is twice as big as it should be so as to be in proportion with the Toll House (B) and the Barn (C) is too low". In addition, Applegate embellishes his script with flourishes, double dots, and underlines, and employs different text size and font to create a graphic and aesthetically pleasing missive.Applegate's minute drawings are interspersed throughout content of similar high quality. He mentions wild animals that miners, frontiersmen, and other hunters encounter on a regular basis, including deer, bear, wolves, and salmon. Applegate observes: "Two weeks since Bear were plenty at the Salt Spring Valley 1 mile east from here, and the boys made a few hunts in that direction, and although one evening they saw five or six, they only succeeded in 'bagging' one black one. They were out again today and report many 'Bars' in the range ... " Applegate was possibly employing backwoods hyperbole when he describes a 12' long black wolf that was recently spotted in the forest, or an abundance of deer that enabled two deer to be killed with one bullet.Applegate discusses at length the environment, which continues to be explored. "Yet there will probably be a way explored direct from this part of the country as soon as the snow and mud will permit, and we will then be a hundred miles nearer to the famous [drawing of whale scavenged by men with pickaxes] then even the Portlanders themselves". Applegate also mentions plants and seeds that he tried to cultivate as gifts or even for export to the East Coast. Democracy flourishes even in the wilderness, Applegate explains. "Polatics: Tomorrow is the day of the election. May every patriotic voter be at his post, and may the 'coon hunting arosticracy' be absent 'frum hum' in one of their favorite excursions". The Civil War raging thousands of miles to the east is not mentioned in this correspondence.Oliver Cromwell Applegate was the sixth son of Lindsay Applegate, one of the pioneers who gave his name to the Applegate Trail. This wilderness trail extending west through modern day Montana, Idaho, Nevada, and California was a safer way to reach the Oregon Territory as it was further south of the Oregon Trail. In 1860, the Applegates relocated from middle western Oregon, where Applegate's correspondent Harriet Applegate still lived, to southwestern Oregon near the modern-day California border. Lindsay Applegate became the owner of the toll road that replaced the trail through the Siskiyou Mountains around the same time. In the winter of 1862, a season that the teenager described in his colorful letter as "8 months ... [of ] ... horror", Applegate earned his teaching certification. That spring, Applegate rejoiced in a changing season that promised plenty and prosperity. Sadly, his creative cousin and correspondent Harriet would die about one month after Applegate wrote this letter, at age sixteen. Applegate taught at Ashland, Oregon during the mid-1860s but then transitioned into Indian affairs. Around this time, Applegate became a scout and assisted his father, then a U.S. Indian Agent. In 1873, the year following the Modoc War, Applegate was appointed a U.S. Commissioner. Twenty years later, Applegate helped restore a Delaware-sized portion of land to the Klamath Indians as federal Indian agent.A remarkable letter by a future Indian agent that captures the spirit of the early Oregon wilderness!"
