        The Weather Book: A Manual of Practical Meteorology.

      First edition. Early rebinding in half blue morocco and marbled boards, by Jarrolds of Norwich (originally appeared in blue cloth). 464pp. With 16 engraved charts at back, some coloured, as called for. Robert Fitz Roy (or Fitzroy), 1805-65, was Captain of HMS Beagle, which sailed round the world with Darwin as naturalist. Fitz Roy, as well as being a great navigator, was a pioneering weather forecaster, and was appointed in 1854 as thr first head of what became the Met. Office. He was especially concerned with improving forecasting for shipping, and designed and installed barometers and weather warnings at ports. This book was a landmark in the early science of meteorology, and is rare. It was reprinted in the same year but appears to have no further editions. Copac lists 4 copies only, including the BL, Bodleian and Royal Society.

        Address Book of Saint Petersburg Exchange Merchants, Brokers and Inspectors at the Saint Petersburg Port].

      Imper. Akademiya Nauk Skt. Peterburg 1863 - Octavo (21 x 14 cm). Title, 78 pp. Original cardboard; slightly rubbed; minor foxing, some single notes and underlinings with pencil. The first commodities exchange in Russia was organised in 1703 on the order of Peter the Great, who was inspired by an exchange he saw in Amsterdam. The new organisation was aimed at facilitating negotiations between merchants, creating business opportunities and making information on prices, supply and demand more transparent. The exchange was open to all the Russian and foreign merchants. For almost a century the St. Petersburg exchange remained the only such market officially recognised by the Russian state (only in 1796 an exchange was open in Odessa, and in 1837 – in Moscow). Since its establishment the exchange was largely inefficient due to the lack of regulations, until the Minister of Finance von Cancrin introduced the Exchange Charter and set up the Exchange Council. Around the same time the deals at the exchange started to also involve shares and bonds in addition to commodities. From 1844 the St. Petersburg Exchange Council started to publish an address book listing all the Russian and foreign merchants and brokers dealing at the exchange, as well as inspectors controlling the quality of commodities at the St Petersburg port. The address book was issued irregularly until 1881. Rare. We could not trace any other copies on the market in the past several decades. Not in WorldCat or Copac.

        Der Kehlkopfspiegel und seine Verwerthung für Physiologie und Medizin. Eine Monographie.

      Zweite, teilweise umgearbeitete und vermwehrte Auflage. - Leipzig, Verlag von Wilhelm Engelmann, 1863, 8, X, (1 Bl.), 132 pp., 26 Holzschnitte, 3 (1 doppelblattgr.) lith. Fafel, Halbleinenband der Zeit. Second Edition of the first monograph of laryngology!Die physikalische Diagnostik hatte indirekt über das normale und krankhafte Geschehen im Brustraum Auskunft gegeben sie wurde in der zweiten Hälfte des 18. und zu Beginn des 19. Jahrhunderts in Österreich von Leopold VON AUENBRUGGER (1722-1809) und in Frankreich von Rene Theophile Hyacinthe LAENNEC (1781-1826) entwickelt. Dann wurden immer häufiger und tauglicher Versuche unternommen, die einen direkten Einblick in den Organismus gestatten sollten. Verschiedene, z. T. recht monströse Apparate zeigen, wie man zu Beginn und in der Mitte des 18. Jahrhunderts bestrebt war, Licht in die Körperhöhlen zu spiegeln. Da machten Ludwig TÜRCK (1810-1868) und Johann Nepomuk CZERMAK (1828-1873) die Laryngoskopie im Jahr 1858 der Klinik dienstbar. Diese neue Methode der Spiegelbetrachtung mit von außen reflektiertem Licht setzte sich in kurzer Zeit durch und eroberte von Wien aus die Welt, sodaß Leopold SCHRÖTTER VON KRISTELLI (1837-1908) in seiner "Festrede, gelegentlich der TÜRCK-CZERMAK Gedenkfeier und des fünfzigjährigen Bestehens des Kehlkopfspiegels", die er als Ehrenpräsident des ersten internationalen Laryngo-Rhinologen Kongresses in Wien im Jahr 1908 hielt, nicht übertrieb, wenn er sagte: "Wenn ich das Verlassen des philosophisch-spekulativen Standpunktes und die Einkehr zur naturwissenschaftlichen Methode als das wichtigste Ereignis des vorigen Jahrhunderts im Werdegange der Medizin ansehe, so möchte ich unter den bedeutendsten Errungenschaften, die aus diesem Boden hervorgegangen sind - der Erfindung des Augenspiegels, dem Verfahren, Medikamente auf subkutanem Wege dem Organismus einzuverleiben, der Anti- und Asepsis, der Entwicklung der Bakteriologie, der Einführung der Serum- und Organotherapie, letztere beruhend auf der Erkenntnis der inneren Sekretion, und endlich der Radiologie -als eine ebenbürtige Schöpfung den Kehlkopfspiegel bezeichnen. Es soll nun meine Aufgabe sein, den Platz festzustellen, welchen die aus der Erfindung des Kehlkopfspiegels hervorgegangene, bald zu einem abgerundeten Wissenszweige herangewachsene Larynologie im Verlauf der ersten 50 Jahre ihres Bestehens unter den übrigen Disziplinen der Medizin gewonnen hat." Folgen wir also der Darstellung SCHRÖTTERS: Seit dem Sommer 1857 hatte Ludwig TÜRCK, ohne Kenntnis der Erfindung des spanischen Gesangslehrers Manuel GARCIA, der damals in London 1854 mit einem Spiegelchen zu stimmphysiologischen Zwecken seinen eigenen Kehlkopf besichtigt und die Ergebnisse seiner Untersuchungen im Jahr 1855 publiziert hat, zuerst an Leichen und dann an Patienten seiner Abteilung, der Nerven- und 6. Medizinischen Abteilung des Allgemeinen Krankenhauses, mittels des Sonnenlichtes mit dem von ihm konstruierten Kehlkopfspiegel laryngoskopiert, eifrig Befunde gesammelt, bis eben das mangelnde Sonnenlicht in Winter seine Arbeit unterbrach. Im darauffolgenden Frühjahr aber veröffentlichte ein anderer, nämlich der aus Prag gebürtige Physiologe Johann Nepomuk CZERMAK (1828-1873) in der "Wiener Medizinischen Wochenschrift" seine, am eigenen Kehlkopf während des vergangenen Winters bei künstlicher Beleuchtung mit dem von TÜRCK entlehnten Spiegelchen gemachten Beobachtungen. - "Herr Türck kam eben immer zu spät", stellte CZERMAK lakonisch fest, irrte dieses Mal aber. War TÜRCK im Falle der Entdeckung des Prinzips der sekundären Degeneration der Engländer A. V. WALLER um genau eine Woche zuvorgekommen und war ihm Ahnliches mit seinen Versuchen zur Feststellung der Folgen von Halbseitenläsion des Rückenmarks widerfahren (dabei war ihm BROWN-SEQUARD zuvorgekommen), so "versuchte sich diesmal der Zauderer in jener denkwürdigen Sitzung der Gesellschaft der Ärzte am 9. April 1858 seinen Prioritätsanspruch zu sichern. Am 14. April erkannte ihn auch CZERMAK ausdrücklich an in späteren Publikationen aber zog er diese Anerkennung zurück. Der Prioritätsstreit zwischen TÜRCK und CZERMAK, der ,TÜRCKENKRIEG', hatte begonnen. Sicherlich war er für den eigentlichen Erfinder sehr schmerzvoll, für den neuen Wissenschaftszweig aber höchst nützlich. Schlagartig eroberte sich die Laryngologie die medizinische Welt. Der schwerfällig produzierende, äußerungsgehemmte TÜRCK hatte in dem weit- und redegewandten CZERMAK einen außerordentlich expeditiven, versuchserfahrenen Rivalen gefunden, der im ersten Ansatz viele technische, methodische und therapeutische Möglichkeiten des neuen Verfahrens, künstliche Beleuchtung, Rhinoskopie und laryngoskopische Kontrolle lokaltherapeutischer Eingriffe, teils selbst entwickelte, teils anbahnte. Im Agon der beiden Männer blühte das neue Fach der Laryngologie in erstaunlich kurzer Zeit mächtig empor", schreibt Erna LESKY. Zug um Zug erfolgten Publikation und Gegenpublikation: Auf CZERMAKS Mitteilungen vom 27. März und 17. April folgte eine Entgegnung TÜRCKS als "Schluss einer grösseren Abhandlung über den Kehlkopfrachenspiegel und seine Anwendung bei Krankheiten des Kehlkopfes und seiner Umgebung, aus Nr. 25 und 26 vom 21. und 28. Juni 1859 der allgemeinen Wiener medizinischen Zeitung' besonders abgedruckt." Dort heißt es abschließend in Sperrdruck: "Wenn also LISTON schon im Jahre 1840 vorschlug, sich beim Glottisödem zur Untersuchung eines ähnlichen kleinen Spiegels zu bedienen, wie ihn die Zahnärzte in Gebrauch haben, und GARCIA mittelst eines ähnlichen Spiegels Untersuchungen über die Stimmbildung anstellte, so ist die neuerliche Anregung zur praktischen Verwerthung des Kehlkopfspiegels und die Umwandlung des bisher nur ganz ausnahmsweise vertragenen Instrumentes in ein brauchbares, durch eine beträchtliche Anzahl bekannt gemachter pathologischer Fälle bereits bewährtes diagnostisches Hilfsmittel mein, und nicht Herrn CZERMAK'S Werk, indem letzterer nur die von mir bereits seit länger ins Werk gesetzte Idee in ganz unberechtigter Weise ohne meine Zustimmung veröffentlichte, und nachträglich meine Priorität in der klarsten Weise selbst anerkannte, während er keine praktisch brauchbare Methode des laryngoskopischen Verfahrens anzugeben im Stande war." Auf CZERMAKS Veröffentlichung von sieben pathologisch-laryngologischen Fällen - wir dürfen bei dieser Darstellung wieder Erna LESKY folgen - folgte am 20. Februar 1859 jene TÜRCKS vom 14. März, gleichfalls sieben Fälle umfassend. Anfang 1860 erschien CZERMAKS Broschüre "Der Kehlkopfspiegel und seine Verwerthung für Physiologie und Medicin" in Leipzig, Ende 1860 TÜRCKS "Praktische Anleitung zur Laryngoskopie" in Wien. "Beide wurden ins Französische übersetzt, die TÜRCKS natürlich später (1861) als die CZERMAKS (Juni 1860). Diese war bereits 1861 auch in englischer Sprache erschienen, als 1862 Türck mit seinen ,Clinical Researches on different diseases of the larynx, trachea and pharynx' bei William and Norgate in London herauskam. ,Herr TÜRCK kam eben immer zu spät." Von 1858 an ging CZERMAK auf Reisen nach Deutschland, Frankreich und England und verbreitete überall die Kenntnis der neuen Wissenschaft. Es verwundert daher nicht, daß deshalb eine Zeitlang namentlich im Ausland CZERMAK als der eigentliche Begründer der Laryngologie galt, der auch eine große Zahl von Schülern heranbildete und auch überall "begeisterte Jünger (hinterließ), RUETE, TRAUBE, VOLTOLINI, BATAILLE, Ch. FAUVEL, Morell MACKENZIE, DURHAM sind nur einige von jenen, die durch CZERMAK zu Pionieren der Laryngo-Rhinologie geworden sind. Ja, auch der Rhinologie! Denn mit seiner Arbeit ,Über die Inspektion des Cavum pharyngonasale und der Nasenhöhle durch die Choanen vermittelst kleiner Spiegel' hat CZERMAK auch die Rhinologie als neues Spezialgebiet begründet. Einfallsreich und wendig, wie er in der Kombination von Technizismen war, tat er noch ein übriges: Er stellte auch die Photographie und Stereoskopie in den Dienst des jungen Faches. Die drei laryngoskopischen Bilder, die er am 7. November 1861 der Akademie der Wissenschaften vorlegte - sie ruhen heute noch in ihrem Archiv -, sind die ersten stereophotographischen Aufnahmen dieses Organs überhaupt. Der "TÜRCKENKRIEG", der "die laryngologische Welt lange in Atem hielt", wurde, wie Hermann MARSCHIK feststellt, "endlich in der Weise beigelegt, daß beiden Forschern ihre Verdienste ungeschmälert zuerkannt wurden, wie sie tatsächlich bestanden. . . . Für uns ist TÜRCK der eigentliche Begründer der wissenschaftlichen Laryngologie als Spezialfach, CZERMAK der Begründer der künstlichen Beleuchtung und der erste Pionier der jungen Wissenschaft, dessen weltgewandtem Wissen und dessen Mitteilungskunst es zu danken ist, daß das Lebenswerk des bescheidenen, in den letzten Jahren sich immer mehr in seine stille Arbeitsklause verschließenden Forschers in kurzer Zeit in der ganzen Welt bekannt wurde und damit ein junger, heute unentbehrlicher Wissenschaftszweig vielleicht vor dem neuerlichen Versinken in die Vergessenheit bewahrt, sicher aber seine Ausbreitung und Einbürgerung in die Gesamtmedizin des Erdkreises um 20 bis 30 Jahre beschleunigt worden ist."

        Copperheads Vigorously Prosecuting Peace: Is it the Peace YOU Want?"

      1863 - Broadside, "Copperheads Vigorously Prosecuting Peace. Is it the Peace You Want?" c. March 1863. 1 p., 15 1/2 x 23 1/2 in. "Read what they say. Abraham Lincoln has usurped power, violated the Constitution, and put in peril the liberties of the people, but Jeff. Davis has not. The South may make war on the North, but the North must not defend itself. They have not a word to say in behalf of the Union, and our own imperiled liberties."The Peace Democrats, or Copperheads, were a vocal minority of Northern Democrats who opposed the Civil War and the administration of President Abraham Lincoln, and were willing to recognize an independent Confederacy. This anti-Copperhead broadside, probably printed for the 1863 Connecticut gubernatorial, turns the resolutions of the February 1863 Hartford Convention against the Copperheads.At top, a caricature shows Copperheads attacking Lady Liberty, who is holding a Union shield. First published in Harper's Weekly on February 28, 1863, over the title, "The Copperhead Party.-In Favor of a Vigorous Prosecution of Peace!" this cartoon came to symbolize all those who opposed the Lincoln administration's conduct of the war. Excerpts:"Read what they say. Abraham Lincoln has usurped power, violated the Constitution, and put in peril the liberties of the people, but Jeff. Davis has not. The South may make war on the North, but the North must not defend itself against the South. The South may use the Negro against the North, but it is very wicked for the North to employ the Negroes against the South." "Fellow Citizens: They have not a word to say in behalf of the Union, and our own imperiled liberties: But they charge the Administration with the greatest of crimes; and they make solemn declarations of resistance to the execution of Federal Laws. "But Mark. Not a word in condemnation of the men of the South, who, covered all over with perjury and crime, have for two years set at defiance all law and justice, and with half a million of armed men have labored, without ceasing, for our destruction. Is not such 'Loyalty' as this a 'Monstrous Fallacy.['?]"Then, "This is the Way They Propose to Give Us Peace," followed by the "Resolutions of the Hartford Convention, February 18, 1863" in two columns, charging the "Administration of Abraham Lincoln has violated the Constitution of the United States in many of its most important particulars."Closing, "Can a Loyal man accept such a Platform as this?"Historical BackgroundAt the end of 1814, Federalists disaffected with the progress of the War of 1812 met in Hartford, Connecticut, to discuss their grievances. Some radicals among them even proposed the secession of New England and a separate peace with Great Britain. Soon after the convention ended, news of General Andrew Jackson's overwhelming victory at New Orleans and the signing of the Treaty of Ghent made the Hartford Convention seem both irrelevant and unpatriotic. The term "Hartford Convention" became synonymous with disunion and treason.Nearly fifty years later, the Democratic state convention that assembled in Hartford in February 1863 passed resolutions critical of the Lincoln administration and the progress of the war and also called for peace. Republican commentators at the time were quick to draw parallels between the two peace conventions in Hartford. They sought to affix the disgrace of the first Hartford Convention to that of the second, and this broadside illustrates that effort.In addition to nominating leading Peace Democrat Thomas H. Seymour (1807-1868) for governor, the convention adopted a platform that declared "the time has now arrived when all true lovers of the Constitution are ready to abandon the 'monstrous fallacy' that the Union can be restored by the armed hand." They declared that Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation "has struck a serious blow at the rights of the States; erected an almost impassable barrier between the North and.

        Grimms' Goblins

      The London Herald Office., Catherine St, Strand, London. - Bound from the parts 25 weekly parts with 22 colour woodblock plates by "Phiz". and a colour title page. 98 tales on 398 pages + the 22 plates. The final leaf states "The End". Although the publishing details in the margin, printed along the length which can be seen, (just) on several of the parts state "To be completed in 30 numbers". I think the production was finished at the last issue here No25, perhaps due to funds or lack of interest? A small quarto size in original blue embossed and blind stamped diaper cloth, spine re-laid cleverly. New canary yellow endpapers. Contents VG with the odd slight brown mark, minor wear to edges. * The date of this has not been given. I have been informed by a reader of this site that the book dates to 1863/4. This is based on the publisher and their address in the Strand. There is a copy in the National Library of Scotland with "Phiz" illustrations, but NOT this publisher and NOT this issue in parts. I also have information that this has a variant title page without the publishers imprint within the imagery. It is COMPLETE as is and was issued at the time in this blue diaper cloth with gilt motif and titles, something the parts would NOT have had, nor would the publishers have had bolts of cloth waiting for buyers of the parts to ask for them to be then sent back for binding, after all the parts were only 1d. I think this may have been sold as is after the parts finished, but bound from parts. No other copy like this one located and no records of THIS particular issue in parts in ANY library listing on Copac. A curiosity and RARE item with the last tale having a Vampire and some of the tales seeming to be more "Arabian Nights" rather than the imagination of the Brothers Grimm and european in origin?

        Journal of the discovery of the source of the Nile.

      Edinburgh Blackwood 1863 - First edition. 8vo., xxxi, [1], 658 pp., engraved frontispiece portrait of Speke, engraved portrait of Grant (crease to corner), 24 engraved plates, 2 maps (1 folding, laid down), illustrations in text, contemporary half calf gilt, morocco lettering piece, a very attractive copy. The account of Speke's third and final expedition to Africa. This took place in 1860 with his friend and fellow Indian army officer James Augustus Grant (1827-1892) on an expedition organized by the Royal Geographic Society and supported by the British government. Their purpose was to explore the Victoria Nyanza area and confirm Speke's earlier view that the lake was the source of the White Nile. On 25 September 1860, their caravan left Zanzibar: a force of 217 people, including armed men and porters bearing loads of beads, cloths, and brass wire intended as gifts for safe passage. They arrived at Kazé (today's Tabora, Tanzania) on 24 January 1861, but further headway was hindered by the defection of carriers, local warfare, the rapacity of chiefs who controlled travel through the territory, and a serious illness suffered by Speke. Moving north between lakes Tanganyika and Victoria, and often traveling separately, Speke and Grant encountered further delays in the kingdoms of Mtésa (Mutesa), the ruler of Uganda, and Kamrasi (Kamurasi), the king of Unyoro. On 28 July 1862, Speke reached the point where the White Nile left Lake Victoria, naming it Ripon Falls—and establishing in his mind the veracity of his claim that the river began there. At Karuma Falls, where the river makes a big turn west, native warfare forced him to cut across country. Ultimately, the expedition reached Gondokoro on 15 February 1863, where Sir Samuel White Baker, coincidentally on his own self-funded mission up the Nile, was able to offer needed assistance. Back in England, Speke was showered with honors and feted by the Royal Geographical Society. But doubts of his claim remained, voiced particularly by Burton, primarily because Speke had not followed the Nile from Karuma Falls to Gondokoro. (Using Speke's maps, Baker would discover what Speke had thereby missed: Lake Albert.). A debate with his former friend-turned-nemesis Burton was arranged for 16 September 1864 to settle the matter; however, on that morning word arrived that Speke had died in a gun accident. Some thought it was a suicide, for he was known as an accomplished sportsman and hunter. Speke and Grant's successes are undisputed, however: they were the first Europeans to cross equatorial eastern Africa, and their explorations added more than 500 miles to the known geography of the area. And today Lake Victoria and its feeder streams are considered the sources of the White Nile. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Ich glaube die Veröffentlichung nicht länger verschieben zu müssen. Denn wenn es sich darum handelt, einer neuen Methode die Aufnahme in die Praxis zu sichern, so erscheint die frühzeitige Mitteilung aller Erfahrungen gewissermassen als Pflicht. Auch hat sich im Verlaufe zweier Jahre mein Gesichtskreis erheblich erweitert, und neue Anschauungen sind gewonnen worden. Es stehen mir nunmehr 25 Beobachtungen zu Gebote, und ausserdem habe ich die Operation auf erworbene Gaumendefekte ausdehnen können." B. Langenbeck, p.1.

        Die krankhaften Geschwülste. Dreissig Vorlesungen gehalten während des Wintersemesters 1862-1863 an der Universität zu Berlin. Bd. 1, 2 und 3,1 in 3 Bdn. (Alles).

      Berlin, Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1863-(67), 8, XII, 543 756,(2) 496 pp., 2 Taf. 243 Holzstiche, 3 Halblederbände der Zeit St.a.Tit. Erste Ausgabe dieses Meisterwerkes - "Virchow's ehrgeizigstes Unternehmen war sein dreibändiges Buch über Tumoren". "Wie die Zellular-Pathologie gründete es sich auf eine Reihe von Vorlesungen, die dieses Mal inmitten der heißesten politischen Schlachten von Virchows ganzen Leben im Winter 1862/63 gehalten worden waren. Die Vorlesungen waren so sorgfältig überarbeitet worden, daß nach des Autors eigenen Worten der stenographische Bricht nur noch der "rote Faden" war, um das sich die Materien gruppierten. Leider blieb dieses Buch, wie das Tumorbuch von Virchows Lehrer Johannes Müller, ein Torso. Die zweite Hälfte des dritten Bandes, die die letzten fünf von den dreißig Vorlesungen enthalten sollte, unter ihnen eine über Krebs, erschien in den weiteren fünfundreißig Jahren des Leben des Autors nicht mehr." "Selbst in seiner unvollendeten Form ist das Werk eindrucksvoll und zu Unrecht vergessen worden. Seine achtzehnhundert Seiten mit 243 Abbildungen sind eine Schatzkammer an Informationen. Kein anderer Gegenstand war für seine Diskussion in den Begriffen der Zellular-Pathologie so geeignet. Tatsächlich hatte die Zellular-Pathologie mit Johannes Müller und Gluges Arbeit über Tumoren in den dreißiger Jahren angefangen. Virchows Theorie der Zellular-Pathologie erreichte ihre größte Triumphe auf dem Gebiet der Tumoren, veränderte dieses Gebiet weitgehend und beherrschte es länger als irgendeine andere Theorie. Im Laufe der Jahre hatte Virchow eine große Anzahl von veröffentlichten und nicht veröffentlichten Beobachtungen über Tumoren bei Menschen und Tieren gesammelt sein ausgedehntes Lesen, besonders sein kritisches Auswählen für seine "Jahrbücher", hatte ihm eine sehr umfassende Kenntnis der alten und der neuen Literatur verschafft. Wir wissen aus dem Vorangehenden, wie oft Virchow Tumoren analysiert und neue Begriffe und Ausdrücke auf diesem Gebiet entwickelt hatte. Dies alles vereinigte Virchow in einem imponierenden Bau." "Das Buch spiegelt deutlich den Wandel wider, den Virchow erfahren hatte, von der physiologischen Pathologie zur pathologischen Anatomie oder Morphologie, nicht nur mikroskopisch, sondern auch makroskopisch." "Der Einfluß den Virchow auf die Onkologie ausübte, wird dadurch illustriert, daß viele seiner Kapitelüberschriften und ein großer Teil des Inhaltes seines Buch modernen Texten auf diesem Gebiet genau entsprechen." Ackerknecht, Rudolf Virchow, Arzt, Politiker, Anthropologe, pp.82-89"This work was not completed, Virchow stopping when he reached the subject of carcinoma. It is one of the most important source books on cancer but it also records one of Virchow's mistakes - his theory of the connective-tissue of carcinoma."

        Panama. Vista géneral tomada del Cerro Ancon por William Leblanc,

      New York Snyder Black & Sturn April 1863 - 70 x 53.5 cm. approx., lithograph by Snyder, Black, and Sturn after William Leblanc, sepia border, captioned below border. Fine lithographic view of Panama, taken from Ancon hill, at 200 metres the highest natural point in Panama, overlooking Panama with various ships at harbour in the bay in the distance. In the fore-ground trees and flora frame the vista, focusing the eye on the bird's-eye view of the city beneath. Ancon Hill was key to the defennce of Panama; for example Captain Morgan had climbed the hill to gain a knowledge of the locqal defences before sacking the city in 1671. It became part of the Panama Canal Zone under U.S. jurisdiction and consequently was left as jungle providing a rich habitat for wildlife up until the present day. 1863 was a significanty date in Panama's history as it brought about contitutional changes under which Panama gained increasing autonomy from its union with Colombia. William LeBlanc owned Ancon Hill, and when the builder of the Suez Canal, De Lesseps, visited Panama in the 1880's with a view to building a canal across the Isthmus, Leblanc warned him that there would not be trees enough there to make crosses to place over the graves of his laborours. This provd to be sadly prophetic as the canal cost thousands of lives in its construction.

        The Views of Judge Woodward and Bishop Hopkins on Negro Slavery at the South, Illustrated from the Journal of a Residence on a Georgian Plantation by Mrs. Frances Anne Kemble (late Butler)

      [Philadelphia], 1863. 1st Edition. Wraps. Very good. Complete, 32 pages plus the illustrated wrapper. Cover and title page both feature the famous illustration of "Whipped Peter" Gordon, an escaped slave who enlisted in the Union Army. Sound binding. The reverse of the title page contains a preface by Stroud dated "Philadelphia, Sept. 15, 1863." Clean with minor edge-wear. This pamphlet contains short passages from pro-slavery, anti-abolition speeches given by George Washington Woodward (the leader of the Democratic Party in Michigan) and John Henry Hopkins (the Episcopalian Bishop of Vermont) interspersed with long excerpts from Fanny Kemble's journal describing the horrors of slavery based on her experience living on a Georgia plantation. The document was used to attack Judge Woodward, who at the time was the Democratic candidate for Governor of Pennsylvania. Stoud was a ardent abolishionist judge from Philadelphia, who authored Southern Slavery and the Christian Religion and a famous analysis of slave laws, A Sketch of the Laws Relationg to Slavery. Frances "Fanny" Kemble was a well-known British actress who had married Philadelphian Pierce Butler, the heir to tobacco, rice, and cotton plantations near Darien, Georgia, and the hundreds of slaves that worked them. Although Butler made regular visits to his plantations, Kemble did not accompany him until in 1838 after several years of marriage. Although she personally found blacks to be stupid, lazy, filthy and ugly, when she saw slavery up close, she was appalled.by their living and working conditions as well as the mixed race children fathered by one of Butler's overseers. These observations she recorded in her daily diary. After the couple returned to Philadelphia, their marriage began to diissove due to mutual infidelity and ended with a bitter divorce 1849. When Kemble threatened to publish her plantation journal, Butler, who was certain to be awarded custody of their children, promised to deny her any visitation. So, the diary, although privately circulated, remained unpublished until her children came of legal age during the Civil War when it was used by abolitionists to bolster flaggin Northern support for the war and undermine Confederate diplomacy in Great Britain. Although, the diary sheds considerable light on plantation life, especially upon the plight of female slaves, its accuracy has been roundly criticized, both by Kemble's contemporaries, including one of her daughters, and more recent historians. While digital files and print-on-demand reprints of this pamphlet abound, physical copies are very scarce. As of 2017, OCLC reports that only one institution, the British Library, holds an original physical pamphlet. Nore are available for sale, and the Rare Book Hub and ABPC show only four examples have appeared at auction in the last ten years.
