        Miners! Laboring Men! Mechanics! Rally! Great Mass Meeting at Piper';s Opera House. Adolph Sutro Will Address the Citizens of Virginia City

      [Virginia City, NV], 1865. Very good. 17.25" x 23" broadside printed on cardboard, with portions completed in crayon or charcoal pencil. Some rubbing, a few water spots; very good. Announces a meeting organized to rally popular support and financing for the Sutro Tunnel. Adolph Sutro's proposed four-mile-long drainage tunnel would correct the flooding of the mines under Virginia City, saving pumping costs, allowing for deeper mining, and providing better ventilation and an additional means of egress. The Bank of California and other major mining interests opposed the tunnel, fearing it would decrease their control over the valuable resources of the Comstock Lode. The Bank succeeded in blocking much of Sutro's access to investors, and his plan appeared doomed to failure until the Yellow Jacket Mine Fire (April 1869) killed forty-five miners whose lives might have been spared had the tunnel been in place. Miners became interested in the issue, and the speech announced in this broadside proved to be a critical turning point. The Miners' Union voted to provide Sutro with $50,000 to start the job, and other funders soon followed their lead. The tunnel was successfully completed in 1878 and served as a model for drainage and access tunnels at many other mining sites. Sutro sold his interest in the tunnel the following year, departing a wealthy man for San Francisco, where he was elected Mayor in 1894.

        Malay Ladies.

      Ca 1865 - An unmounted albumen photograph of a group of Malay women and children, with number and title at the lower left "158 Malay ladies". With the blind stamp for G. R. Lambert & Co., Singapore at the lower right. The entire group is seated, with most of the women weaving and working with cloth, with large panels of cloth erected as a backdrop. Lambert & Co. were commercial photographers in Singapore, 1867 - c. 1914. Founded by the German-born Gustave Richard Lambert (b.1846), the firm was by the end of the 19th century the largest and most successful studio in South-East Asia, maintaining branches at various times in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, and Sumatra. It was appointed photographer to the king of Siam in 1880 and was also extensively patronized by the British colonial authorities to record political occasions and official visits. Although Lambert's personal presence in Singapore was sporadic, under the management of Alexander Koch the studio assembled the most extensive photographic documentation of the area, with a catalogue of views covering almost the entire Malay archipelago. - The Oxford Companion to the Photograph. 7 1/2 x 10".

        AMERICAN COW MILKER MACHINE POSTER, ORIGINAL, 19TH CENTURY EPHEMERA

      1865 - [AMERICANA - 19th CENTURY EPHEMERA] AMERICAN COW MILKER MACHINE POSTER, ORIGINAL. Buffalo, NY: Express Printing Company for the American Cow Milking Machine Co. [n.d. ca. 1865]. 42 x 26 3/4 inches. Woodblock printing: Boldest typeface measures 10 inches tall. L. O. Colvin's "American Cow Milker" was patented in 1860 as the first use of teat cups with a vacuum. The milker was used in England, but the constant vacuum pressure caused problems with the cows' teats. He sold the patent in England for about $5,000, after selling over 1,500 machines. He continued to make improvements and was more successful in America where this undated broadside was published. "Triumphant Success | The Most Important and Valuable Invention of the 19th Century" proclaims the headline; the company is seeking business men to invest/sell the machines; the farmer is being courted. "A sure cure for aching hands & kicking cows." Several archival tape repairs to reverse with no loss of text. Heavy newsprint stock, printed in black. A few small closed tears to edges, and some light foxing. Very good overall. We have located a smaller version of this advertisement, but none this size.

        STANWIX HALL! ROME, N.Y. W.B. SINK, PROPRIETOR [caption title].

      New York: Dopp & Nolan, [nd, ca. 1865]. - Photograph, 11 1/4 x 16 1/4 inches; mounted on printed card stock, 16 x 19 3/4 inches. The image and card stock have equal, light tanning, otherwise the photograph is clean and unblemished. Minor chipping and staining to mount. Very good. Archival matting, and protected with Mylar sheet. A large and impressive photograph of the Stanwix Hall Hotel, dating to around the end of the Civil War. The photograph shows the large, four- story hotel from an elevated height, across the corner of the building, showing the full length of two sides of the building. Men with top hats and women with parasols are shown on two balconies and in the open windows. Three horse-drawn carriages and a buckboard are also shown. Several other people stand in the doorway and one man leans against a large gas lamp. Two businesses are visible on the ground floor, one owned by "T. Flanagan," and the other a "Wholesale Liquor Store" which also sells tobacco and cigars. A sign for a wood coal yard is also visible in the foreground. The mount has dramatic large-type shaded print advertising the hotel. W.B. Sink moved to Rome, New York in 1865 and bought the Stanwix Hall Hotel and the adjacent Mansion House Hotel. He also opened the "Sink Opera House." This poster advertising the Stanwix was likely taken shortly after Sink bought the hotel, serving as a compelling advertisement for one of Rome's grandest buildings. An evocative promotional piece, offering much information about American economics, architecture, and culture at the close of the Civil War.

        Untersuchungen über Gehirn und Rückenmark des Menschen und der Säugetiere.

      . Hrsg. u. bevorwortet v. Max Schultze nach dem Tode des Verf. - Braunschweig, 1865, 8°, XVII pp., (1 Bl.), 318 pp., 1 Anz.pp., mit 6 gefalt. lith. Taf. in Imperial-Oktav gezeichnet von O.F.C. Deiters, Halbledereinband der Zeit.. Rare First Edition! - Ex copy of Prof. Johannes Friedrich Miescher (1844 - 1895) the well known Swiss physician and biologist. He was the first researcher to isolate and identify nucleic acid. - - "Otto Friedrich Carl Deiters (1834-1863) holds the position of "Privatdozent der Medizin" when he dies at 29 years of age. His &quote;Studies on brain and spinal cord of man and mammals&quote; are found in his personal estate. They are in the form of an unfinished manuscript.. - Deiters' outstanding text begins with the following words: &quote;I have put myself to the task of making the central organs of the nervous system the subject of a thorough analysis in a comprehensive series of investigations...&quote; Deiters' histologic methods include cutting of thin sections and isolation of individual cells as well as a large battery of chemical pre- and post-treatments. His beautiful drawings betray, in addition to artistic talent, remarkable mastery of these methods; his technique of isolating (micro-dissecting) individual nerve cells requires an enviable micromanipulatory control of hands, armed only with the teasing tools - needles and the like - of that day. Among the many non-man mammals which Deiters studies, oxen seem to be his favourite subjects. There are not many areas of the central nervous system he does not draw into his investigation. - What was the image of truth which emerged? First of all: what, for Deiters, was a nerve cell (Ganglienzelle)? &quote;I don't know if there is an absolute defintion; however, I call every cell which is continuous with fragments of unequivocal nerve fibers, a nerve cell.&quote; He approaches this problem of neuron definition by describing all recognizable (morphologic) properties of those cells which may be assumed to be nerve cells. These properties may then be applied to other cells as criteria of their neuronal identity. Deiters' &quote;schematic picture&quote; (schematisches Bild) which resulted from this analysis could, in his opinion, be applied to practically all known CNS nerve cells. - That part of his picture which is most pertinent to this review can be summarized as follows: the nerve cell is a cell which bears on its soma one axon and several dendrites. This characterization of the nerve cell leaves room for an interesting elaboration. This elaboration was very much part of Deiters' picture. The reason that I treat it separately is that, in retrospect, it constitutes a side-branch of the neuron's ideogenetic tree: it was cut off by students of the nerve cell who came after Deiters. The elaboration is that nerve cells bear a second system of axons which emanate from the dendrites; (the first system consists of the one axon which issues from the soma). A summary of the nerve cell compartments as proposed by Deiters shall now be given. - The nerve cell body (Körper der Zelle) contains a nucleus with a nucleolus. The remainder of the soma is &quote;an irregularly shaped mass of protoplasma of granular appearance&quote;. From the fairly smooth contour of the soma there arise, in a gradual transition, a variable number of dendrites. Because of the great similarity between dendrites and soma (Deiters emphasizes this point) he names them &quote;protoplasmic processes&quote; (Protoplasmafortsätze). The dendrites repeatedly bifurcate; they finally become so thin that they &quote;lose themselves in the porous ground-substance&quote;; they cannot be seen to connect nerve cells with one another. It is impossible to confuse dendrites with axons. Deiters distinguishes two parts of the axon: the &quote;axonal process&quote; (Nervenfaser- oder Axencylinder-fortsatz) i.e., the portion of the axon seen to be directly attached to the soma; and the &quote;axon proper&quote; (Axencylinder), the more distal, myelinated portion of the axon. The axonal process - always one of its kind to a cell body - is clearly distinct from the protoplasmic processes: among other things, it is far less granular than the dendrites and it is stiffer; it is fairly straight, always unbranched and has a smooth contour. The point of emanation of the axonal process is usually on the cell body; it may also be on a proximal, stout dendrite branch. The axonal process narrows; .. The smallest diameter is reached &quote;at a distance which approximately equals the diameter of the cell body&quote;. Then the axon becomes wider and assumes its myelin sheath. It is obvious that Deiters, with great clarity, gives the first description of those structures which we now call the initial segment of the axon and the axon neck. (I propose that the somewhat macabre designation &quote;axon neck&quote; - macabre indeed: where is the head? - be replaced by &quote;Deiters' constriction&quote;.) - One of the similarities between dendrites and somata which Deiters notices may, at first, seem somewhat surprising to us: it is that both of them bear axons. This observation brings us to Deiters' fourth and last nerve cell compartment, the &quote;second extensive system of very small axons which are attached to the dendrites&quote;. These small axons differ from the large axon which sprouts from the soma, in triangular bases. Only rarely, as Deiters admits, does one see them surrounded with a myelin sheath. Although not explicit, it may be inferred that Deiters conceived these small axons to be only fragments which have one end attached to the dendrite and the other end broken off... Deiters did not depict their (i.e. the second order axons) mode of branching he did depict two such axons which acquire a myelin sheath. I am convinced that Deiters in describing his second system axons has given us an accurate portrayal of boutons terminaux and their pre-terminals. His morphologic interpretation diverges from ours: these small axons form, for him, &quote;a second system of egressing axons&quote; (ein zweites System abgehender Axencylinder) (my spacing). His functional interpretation converges with ours: these small axons may very well have the office of interconnecting the nerve cells... - In ending it should be said that we owe to Deiters' unique work a concept of the nerve cell which - one century old - comes very close to our own. All nerve cell studies of any significance performed since, have been influenced by the image of truth he left. Within the subsequent twenty-five years Deiters' image was to undergo some modifications and the nerve cell in which we now believe then emerged." - H.Hyden (Ed.), The Neuron, p. 40ff; Vera Sabine Deiters, Otto Friedrich Karl Deiters. Leben und Werk (2006), pp.77-83. - Garrison & Morton No.1271; Rothschuh Nr.1370

        The First of May 1865 or Genl. Moving Day in Richmond VA

      H. & W. Voight, New York 1865 - Hand-colored lithograph, 9½ x 11¾ inches. Lightly tanned, with minor wear. Very good. The Confederates rousted from Richmond A satirical political print showing "moving day" at Confederate headquarters in Richmond. The lithograph depicts Gen. Robert E. Lee loading old swords in a dog cart with two scrawny dogs attached, while Treasury Secretary George Trenholm hauls a string of boxes carrying worthless bonds over his shoulder, each bearing the name of a Confederate state. A box on the sidewalk marked "C.S.A. Treasury (on which a dog is unabashedly urinating) is also labeled as "Waste Paper," and the building in the background sports signs that read "Sheriff Sale" and "To let. Apply Lincoln & Co." Several individuals - including two African Americans, one thumbing his nose - look on. The title date of May 1 would lead one to think that this lithograph was issued on that date, but in fact it was probably issued earlier in the spring, before the collapse of the Confederacy, and is speculating on its demise with May 1 as a projected to date. In fact, Richmond was occupied by Union troops on April 3. Likewise, the reference to "Lincoln & Co." is unlikely after his death on April 15. Finally, Treasury Secretary Trenholm had resigned on April 27, although this detail might have escaped a cartoonist. A very rare image; We locate copies at the American Antiquarian Society, Library of Congress, Yale, Virginia Historical Society, and Brown University. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Travel Letters written to his mother and sister while on an 1857-1858 trip to South America and an Extended Voyage ¿Around the World¿ from 1865-1868

      - Collection contains 61 letters, totaling some 572 pages, plus several incomplete letters and fragments, mailing envelopes, miscellaneous memoranda, documents and invoices pertaining to Nisbet¿s travels. Plus miscellaneous family correspondence, ephemera, etc. Highly interesting and detailed travel letters describing two trips undertaken by Nisbet, a wealthy and well connected New Yorker, one to South America in 1858, and a later journey around the world which lasted from 1865-1868. Nisbet was an intrepid traveler often journeying to places unfrequented by Americans including a trip up the Nile, the Holy Land, Russia, India, including Kashmir and the Himalayas, China and Japan. Nisbet¿s letters are vivid and descriptive, some run to ten and twenty pages in length, and provide his impressions of each country and locale visited. His letters from Egypt, Palestine, India, China and Japan are of great interest. Nisbet in addition shipped home a large amount of artifacts and artworks amongst other items from each country. Nisbet was a wealthy young man, whose family owned properties both in Yonkers and in New York City, and whose income allowed him to undertake this extensive tour and to effectively retire from business in 1865, at the age of thirty. Nisbet¿s correspondence is a superb collection of 19th century American travel letters, far beyond the typical ¿Grand Tour¿ letters often encountered. Nisbet¿s obituary in the New York Times of February 6, 1906 provides a brief synopsis of his life: ¿William F. Nisbet of 400 West End Avenue, a well-known resident of this city, died yesterday of apoplexy, aged 71 years. On his mother's side he was of old Dutch stock. His father was a Presbyterian clergyman of Scotch descent. In early life he was interested in the Architectural Iron Works, but in 1865, retired from business and became an extensive traveler and art collector. He resided in Yonkers for many years, where for a long time he was President of the Board of Education. Mr. Nisbet was of striking and magnetic personality, and a gentleman of the old school. He leaves a wife and two sons.¿

Mitscherlich intended to publish a large work on the volcanous of Germany, however, this is all published. "Mitcherlich's early interest in geology and mineralogy continued throughout his life. He was particularly concerned with the production of artificial minerals through the fusion of silica with various metallic oxides, and achieved some valuable results in such experiments. In his last years he made a number of journeys to the most important European volcanoes to gather data toward a general theory of volcanoes, the subject of his last, posthumously published, articles (DSB IX, p. 425).

I am in fine spirits at this time, looking forward to the time when I will be called upon for exchange if everything goes on well, my "turn" will come, in about six weeks. Cousin Edel will leave in the next squad, he is very much excited over the idea of getting back, and I think he has improved in looks considerably since he has been xxx for that purpose. I have not heard from Lt. Thompson for some time, perhaps he's gone on exchange. In regard to the tobacco, I am very glad you did not send it at this particular time, though if I am so unfortunate as to remain here during the summer it will be very acceptable and hope you will make the necessary arrangements with Perncell to ship me a small box when I write again, if it is your intention to send Ben tobacco, do not send together, direct separately, otherwise we could not divide with each other. I often hear from Joe and Frank. They are well, all of the Lazerwell boys here are well. The health of this place is very good. I will be pleased to hear from you again. Give my love to all my friends and relations. Yours Respectfully, James PeeryPSI enclose you a stamp, perhaps you can't get them. "This letter has been carefully framed and stored with the original envelope, with stamp and postal markings. Johnson's Island is a 300-acre (121.4 ha) island in Sandusky Bay, located on the coast of Lake Erie, 3 miles (5 km) from the city of Sandusky, Ohio. It was the site of a prisoner-of-war camp for Confederate officers captured during the American Civil War. Johnson's Island was the only Union prison exclusively for Southern officers but it also held regular soldiers. During its three years of operation, more than 15,000 men were incarcerated there.

        St. Goar on the Rhine

      London 1865 - Chromolithograph. Trimmed and mounted on board as issued. In excellent condition, with the exception of a tear in the image. Scratch in upper section of image with small puncture mark. Image size: 16 ¾ x 25 13/16. A picturesque view of St. Goar on the Rhine by the celebrated landscape painter, Thomas Richardson. Thomas M. Richardson , born and died in Newcastle upon Tyne, but spent a considerable amount of time traveling in France, Switzerland, Italy and Germany, and produced lithographs of the watercolours he did there. This excellent study on the Rhine being a perfect example. The printing, a major element in the success of a chromolithograph, was done by M. & N. Hanhart. Richardson was son and pupil of T. M. Richardson the Elder, who taught him to work in oils and watercolours. After his father's death, Richardson the Younger worked exclusively in watercolour. He was a member of the Society of Painters in Watercolour and a member of the Royal Scottish Academy. Chromolithography was achieved by using a series of carefully registered tint stones to create a smooth richly coloured image. This printing process became immensely popular towards the end of the nineteenth century and was widely used in fine art as well as commercial printing. One of the most important chromolithographic firms was M & N Hanhart in London. The firm, founded by Michael Hanhart, began publishing its first prints in 1840 and remained in business until the end of the century. Hanhart's was known for its large separately published chromolithographs, but it printed everything from book illustrations to song sheets. This stunning print after Richardson is a fine example of Hanhart's superior chromolithographs. Its intense colour and meticulous detailing is common of Hanhart's superior printing techniques representing the best example of nineteenth century chromolithography. Benezit, Dictionary of Artists.
