Willson, Hugh Bowlby
London, 1863. b/w folding plates. xi, 63 pp. Willson, a Canadian polymath, was sufficiently ahead of his time as to sound like a crackpot. He proposes “to do away with the sails, masts, and rigging, and thereby to dispense with sailors - in fact to regard a ship of war as a vast floating military engine, capable of being rapidly moved to any point required, at a velocity hitherto unknown.” In fact, what he has in mind are souped-up ironclads. He acknowledges Scott-Russell's wave-line theory and adds his own ideas about the importance of reducing surface friction. His design concepts are illustrated in five folding plates. Though he sounds like an engineer he was actually a journalist with a particular interest in economics. According to the Dictionary of Canadian Biography, “The quality of Willson's writings on money and banking was excellent.” An interesting oddball item. VG in original cloth binding.

0. (MILITARY MANUALS). A Manual of Military Surgery Prepared for the Use of the Confederate States Army. By Order of the Surgeon-General. Richmond: Ayres & Wade, 1863. 1st ed. 297pp. 30 plates. Orig. cloth-backed flexible marbled boards. Spine partially abraded, boards lightly rubbed, light scattered foxing and toning, very old waterstain to final leaves, else very good. P&W 1984. Doctors in Gray, p.218. Norman 1433. Not to be confused with another Confederate surgery manual of the same title by John Julian Chisolm. On front free endpaper, "Presented by S. P. Moore, Surgeon Genl C.S.A., March 8th 1864." Samuel Preston Moore (1813-1889) was a military physician who served in the medical corps of the U.S. Army during the Mexican-American War and later served as the Confederate Surgeon General through nearly all of the Civil War. Moore had befriended Jefferson Davis during the Mexican-American War, impressing the future president of the Confederacy with his abilities. Moore resigned his commission in the U.S. Army in February 1861 and returned to his practice in Little Rock, Arkansas. On 16 March, he was appointed Surgeon General and remained in that post until the end of the war. He dealt with shortages in medicines, supplies and equipment, as well as a shortage of trained surgeons. He installed an examination system to identify untrained doctors, which allowed them to receive further training and proficiency. The 30 plates illustrate procedures for the amputation of hands, feet, arms, and legs, and the treatment of various battlefield wounds caused by sword … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dunant, Jean Henri
Geneva: J. G. Fick, 1863. Dunant, Jean Henri (1828-1910). Un souvenir de Solferino. [4], 115pp. Double-page map. Geneva: Imprimerie Jules-Guillaume Fick, 1862. 267 x 173 mm. 19th century half cloth, marbled boards, almost invisibly rebacked, light edgewear; boxed. Internally very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed by the author to Sven Erik Sköldberg (1806-84) on a slightly trimmed leaf bound before the half-title: "Monsieur le Docteur Sven Erik Skoeld[berg]/Conseiller au Collčge de Médecine de Stockho[lm]/Intendant de matériel medical de l'Armée/Suédoise &c. &c. &c./Souvenir de la Conférence Internatio[nale]/de Genčve/Hommage respectueux/de l'Auteur/J. Henry Dunant/Genčve le 29 Octobre 1863." First Edition of the work that led to the foundation of the International Red Cross, inscribed by the author to one of the future organizers of the Swedish Red Cross. Dunant's ten-line presentation inscription, which fills the entire page, compares favorably to his three-line presentation in the copy cited in the Grolier Club's One Hundred Books Famous in Medicine. According to En français dans le texte, 1,600 copies of Un souvenir de Solferino were printed in November 1862 for private distribution. Of these only 400 were actually sent out; these copies, constituting the original issue, have a title-page stating "Ne se vend pas" over the imprint. The positive reception of the few copies sent out encouraged Dunant to publish a second edition of 1,000 copies just one month later. On 24 June 1859 the Battle of Solferino-one of the bloodiest of the nineteenth century-was fought betwee … [Click Below for Full Description]

Dwinelle, John W.
San Francisco: Towne & Bacon, 1863. [4],102,[2],115pp. plus frontispiece map (here in two copies). Original printed wrappers. Spine perished, with some repair along inner portion of front wrapper. 19th-century library association bookplate on front free endpaper. Neat repairs along foredge of maps. Else good. In a half morocco box. The scarce first edition of Dwinelle's essential California work, especially desirable in the original printed wrappers, as here. This copy bears an inscription on the front wrapper: "Joseph Bell Esq. Albany, N.Y. with the compliments of G.W. Bell, Supt. 8 Dist. San Francisco." G.W. Bell was a well-regarded assayer and Wells Fargo agent in San Francisco, and the first president of San Francisco's Olympic Club. The wrappers betray the origins of Dwinelle's work as a legal brief for the case of "The City of San Francisco vs. The United States," with John W. Dwinelle being the counsel for the claimant. This extensive brief is also a historical account of the city of San Francisco, and confirmed the city's claim to four leagues of "Pueblo Lands," as defined by the Land Commission Act. Dwinelle's history is a great storehouse of information on the beginnings of San Francisco, with printings of a large number of documents which are now either inaccessible or destroyed. The map of "The Peninsula of San Francisco" is present here in two copies. The Streeter copy of the first edition, also in original printed wrappers and with a presentation inscription from Dwinelle to John Hittell, brought $300. HOWES D614, "b." ZAMORANO 80, 32.

Waring, J. B.
London: Day & Son, 1863. First edition. Hardcover. Very good condition. Complete in three folio volumes, magnificently produced with 301 chromolithographed full page plates of Victorian works of art from around the world, including the Supplemental Plate 300A. Chromolithograph plates include goldsmithed pieces, silver, clocks, furniture, porcelain, glass, sculpture, iron work, fire arms, and lace. These volumes were published to commemorate the Exposition of 1862 held in South Kensington, London. It was an unprecedented fair, with more exhibitors from more countries than had ever previously been attempted. Easily exceeding the Paris Exhibition of 1855, some 29,000 exhibitors representing 37 countries took part, resulting in an enormous number of exhibits which would have been even higher had the United States been able to participate, which it could not, due to the Civil War. There were the latest inventions of the Industrial Revolution, including the electric telegraph, submarine cables, the first plastic, machine tools, precision instruments, cotton mills, maritime engines and ice produced by an early refrigerator. There were the decorative goods, including fabrics, rugs, sculptures, furniture, plates, porcelain, silver and glass wares, and wallpaper, including works by William Morris. Many of the participating exhibitors came from the British Colonies, including Australia. The Jurors Reports favorably compared Australian exhibits in 1862 to prior efforts: "In 1851 the Australasian colonies were but poorly represented, although a few made some efforts to put in an ap … [Click Below for Full Description]

George William Bagby (Editor)
Richmond: Macfarlane & Fergusson, 1863. This issue contains more from Robert Howison's History of the War, as well as "The Fire Legend -- A Nightmare" from An unpublished ms. of the Late Edgar A. Poe [which turns out to have been wrongly attributed to Poe!] , as well as material concerning Fantine from Les Miserables [or known colloquially among the Confederates as Lee's Miserables]; and, in the Editor's Table, "The Turn the War Has Taken" and from "New Works", "The Life of Stonewall Jackson".and "Infantry Sword Exercise".The Southern Library Messenger was the most significant magazine in the South from the time of its founding by Thomas White in 1834 until its last issue in 1864. From 1860 on, when George W. Bagby took it over, the Messenger became a secessionist propaganda tool: "Severing all ties with the northern literary establishment, Bagby published 'purely Southern articles...that smack of the soil," as he wrote in his June 1860 "Editor's Table." During the American Civil war, the journal published accounts of battles, and criticized both the North and the Confederate government, especially its president, Jefferson Davis. As economic deteriorated in Virginia during the war, the journal ceased publication in 1864." An invaluable original source. In original wrappers. (Crandall 5266).

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.
