        Archive of 65 documents

      , 1865. 1865. City of London Truss Society. Archive of 65 documents, including autograph letters signed (mostly to John Colley Taunton [d. 1858]), printed reports and other ephemera. 1822-65. Some documents soiled or dampstained, a few with tears, but overall good to very good. Calendar of the archive included. The City of London Truss Society, a highly successful British charitable organization, began operating in 1807 and continued well into the twentieth century (Sir Geoffrey Keynes, the well-known surgeon and bibliographer, served on the Society's medical staff in the 1930s). A notice published in the Philosophical Magazine in 1813 describes the genesis of the Society: "From the great number of persons among the laboring poor who were afflicted with hernia, and for whose relief no adequate provision existed, on the 14th of October 1807 Dr. Squire, Dr. Herdman, John Taunton, the Rev. H. G. Watkins, James Horton, Michael Bartlett, Joseph Atkinson, John Middleton, John Gardner and John Whitford, met at the City Dispensary, and formed themselves into a Society 'for the relief of the ruptured poor throughout the Kingdom, the City of London Truss Society'" (Philosophical Magazine 43 [1813]: 316).John Taunton (1769-1821), surgeon to London's city dispensary, was appointed the Truss Society's first surgeon; after his death, his son John Colley Taunton took over the post, remaining there until his own death in 1858. By 1813 the Society was treating nearly 2000 patients annually; by Taunton's death in 1821 this number had increased to over 3500; and by the end of the nineteenth century the Society was employing three surgeons and seeing over 10,000 patients per year. The archive we are offering contains 65 documents, of which all but seven are handwritten. Of the 58 handwritten documents, the majority are letters to (and a few from) John Colley Taunton. The most notable correspondent represented here is physiologist and surgeon Benjamin Collins Brodie (1783-1862), whose letter to Taunton advises him on a urinary tract infection in a patient. Four of the letters are from surgeon William Kingdon (1789-1863); two of these recommend poor patients to the Society's care. 31 letters are from Samuel Cartwright (1789-1864), a dentist and one of the vice-presidents of the Truss Society; nearly all of his letters have to do with donations to the Society, and several include the exact amounts given. Another group of letters is from Mary Tanner, presumably a patient; two of these letters include prescription notes in what is presumably J. C. Taunton's hand. Also included in this archive are three of the Society's annual reports, for the years 1862-1864; a printed subscription card; and two printed invitations from the Society addressed to Walter K. Taunton. A complete calendar of the archive is included. Royal College of Surgeons, Plarr's Lives of the Fellows Online.

        LAMENTARIUM FUNUS! HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN!... JEFF DAVIS IS NO MORE [caption title]

      [Richmond, 1865. Broadside, 19 1/4 x 15 inches. Previously folded. A few short separations and small chips at edges. Tanning and light foxing. Very good. A bitingly satirical poster commemorating the downfall of the Confederacy and Jefferson Davis, evidently issued immediately after the fall of Richmond. "If ye have tears, prepare to shed them now, because JEFF hath gone to his long home, and the mourners skedaddle about the streets. The Beauty and Pride of the Confederacy hath perish in the "Last Ditch." Tell it not in Pelham! Publish it not in the Hub, lest the Daughters of the Uncircumcised rejoice, lest the whelps of the Yankees triumph.... The indomitable President of the late C.S.A., invulnerable to the diabolical concatenations of Mortal foes, has now at last succumed [sic] to the irresistible force of circumstances, and yielded after a brief but heroic struggle to the combined attack of Cholera Infantum, Summer Complaint, Mississippi Quick Step, General Goneness, and several other diseases too numerous to mention...." The remainder of the broadside lists the order of events at the mock funeral, with sarcastic notes such as one reading, "Owing to the scarcity of coin, J.D.'s eyes remain unclosed." An entertaining, if rather sadistic, and very scarce piece, with OCLC recording only one copy, at the Boston Athenaeum.

        THE MASTERSHIP AND ITS FRUITS: THE EMANCIPATED SLAVE FACE TO FACE WITH HIS OLD MASTER. A SUPPLEMENTAL REPORT TO HON. EDWIN M. STANTON, SECRETARY OF WAR, BY JAMES MCKAYE, SPECIAL COMMISSIONER.

      Wm. C. Bryant,, New York: 1865 - 38, [2 blank] pp. Original printed front wrapper, else Very Good. McKaye looks at the "great changes which slave society is undergoing" in "the valley of the Lower Mississippi." Of all the "other sections visited by the Commission, here are found all the elements of that society still in existence; but in a state of revolution and transformation." Recounting Slavery's features in this area of the Deep South, he explores the interaction of the races during the earliest phases of military reconstruction, the sleepy pace of many of the changes, the biases of white Union officers, and-- with much eyewitness testimony-- provides a valuable report on the results of the abolition of slavery in the part of the South where it was most deeply entrenched.

        [EXTENSIVE ARCHIVE OF OVER TWO HUNDRED FIFTY LETTERS FROM HATTIE W. TAYLOR TO HER HUSBAND CHARLES DURING THE CIVIL WAR AND HIS SERVICE IN THE 16th CONNECTICUT INFANTRY]

      Bristol, Unionville, West Meriden, Ct, 1865. 256 letters of varying lengths, most a single sheet, with 213 envelopes. 217 letters housed in two three-ring binders, with remaining letters still folded in envelopes. Previously folded, and an occasional area of staining, but overall fine. A fascinating and comprehensive collection of over two hundred fifty Civil War-era "home front" letters from a Connecticut woman, Hattie W. Taylor, to her husband, Charles, who spent most of the conflict as a part of Company K of the 16th Connecticut Infantry in the Army of the Potomac. Taylor seems to have been well-educated, and her letters are engaging, insightful, and full of interesting information and strong opinion regarding both local and national affairs. The letters begin in June 1860, and a small portion of them relate to the period in which Taylor was engaged to Charles before they got married in the middle of 1862 and he enlisted in the Union army. She eventually resigned herself to her new husband's plans, stating in an August 9 letter that, "I am brave and stronger now.... I have placed all my trust in my Heavenly Father and I believe he will care for you.... We shall be both be better for the sacrifice made for 'our country.' You are in the right, God is with you - your course is noble, manly, heroic." The 16th Connecticut participated in the Battle of Antietam on September 16-17, 1862, and suffered heavy losses, with more than 200 men captured. On September 23, Taylor wrote to her husband that she thanked God, "That he was spared-that from out that terrible battle you came unscathed." She also mentioned that she felt, "More encouraged regarding the end of the war. President Lincoln has issued a proclamation that after the first of January all slaves are to be free - so I think we may hope that God will give us success." Another local soldier, a Captain Manross was killed at Antietam and Taylor wrote of his funeral in a September 29 letter: "Mrs. Manross is nearly crazy - God pity and help her.... Capt. B. Darrons company came out from Hartford to attend Capt. Manross' funeral-also his class from Amherst & the Free Masons. The flags were hung at half mast & a general feeling of sadness prevailed." While some in the North were opposed to Lincoln's preliminary Emancipation Proclamation and fighting a civil war to free the slaves, Hattie Taylor supported the abolitionist cause. As she wrote in a December 7, 1862, letter to her husband: "God is on the side of right and if we obey him he will deliver us. Sometimes I think we at the north are suffering full measure for all that the poor oppressed black at the south has for years suffered. I believe their day of deliverance is at hand and when that comes peace will come too. You see your little wife hasn't changed her abolition principles." By March 1863, the early optimism concerning the war had given way to pessimism and, in some quarters, anti-war activities, in Connecticut. In a March 1 letter, Taylor wrote that people "are expecting another draft and there are long faces. Patriotism seems to have gone by-people are discouraged. Secession democrats here have had and still hold their secret meetings. I wish every soul of them was down South. It is a downright shame that such things are tolerated." A week later, she was still condemning the copperheads, as well as being critical of the Union Army, writing that, "We can see no immediate prospect of peace, but these miserable 'copperheads' (I wish they were all in rebeldom) are trying their best to help the rebels as you will see by the Press I send you weekly-and our armies are doing nothing (I'm thankful the 16th Reg. are not) at present." Taylor did like Union General Benjamin Butler but had harsh words for Secretary of State Seward. In a May 20, 1863 letter she claimed, "I like such a man as Gen. Butler, when he says a thing, he will do it and he is for having this infernal (big word for me) rebellion put down at all hazards. He knows what he wants to do or what wants doing and that is more than can be said of some. I wish Mr. Seward was in Fort Lafayette or some other place, than where he is now. I guess I will stop for wishing does no good, but if I had the power he would be missing till this war was over and some other ones too." Taylor reported vigorously on local reaction to military news. On July 7, 1863, she relayed the celebration in West Meriden, Connecticut, resulting from the Union victory at Vicksburg. "This afternoon the news of the surrender of Vicksburg was received. And it has been a time of rejoicing. All the bells in town were rung, shop whistles blew, all the flags were flying and people greeted each other with smiling faces. Some swung their hats in the air, and a feeling of hope filled all hearts." Learning that the Union victory of Gettysburg was accompanied by large numbers of casualties, she expressed her views regarding the outcome of the war in a July 12 letter: "Oh! That this cruel war was ended, but the clouds are breaking - already we can see through them the blue sky of peace - yet we know there is much more to be done yet- many hard battles to be fought ere the end comes-but we have great reason to be encouraged. Oh! I do hope our rulers may see and realize that only in justice can peace come to us. When we unconditionally give freedom to every downtrodden son of Africa then I believe the starry banner of our country shall float over a land of peace - and home of the brave." In her next letter, dated July 14, Taylor mentioned the New York draft riots and again expressed her negative opinion of copperheads: "Drafting has commenced and it makes many long faces. In New York it is being resisted by a mob - several lives have been lost, buildings burned-the telegraph poles cut down-rail road torn up - Harlem river bridge burned. A regular copperhead demonstration. It is reported they are fighting there to-night. How dreadful it is, but I hope these traitors at home will be attended to in earnest." Five days later she wrote of an expected draft riot in Meriden, Connecticut, "There is every expectation of it and every night when I retire to rest I know not but before morning I shall be awakened by the cries of a mob in our streets. The loyal citizens have formed themselves into companies for the defense of our town - they drill every morning and evening and have minie' rifles." In the summer of 1864, with General Ulysses Grant's army bogged down in Virginia and suffering heavy casualties, President Lincoln was re-nominated for a second term. Despite the growing number of casualties resulting from Grant's movement against General Lee's army, Taylor felt confident in Grant's abilities, as she stated in a June 21 letter. "I think Grant is the man for whom we have so long been looking to lead the Army of the Potomac, and he will eventually take Richmond but what a sacrifice of life." Nevertheless, she still held General Benjamin Butler in high regard, especially after reading James Parton's 1864 book, General Butler in New Orleans. In an August 2 letter, she wrote that she was, "Reading Parton's 'Life of Butler' - it is very interesting. I had no idea he had done so much - he stands high here than ever in my estimation. Would that we had more like him." By early 1865, Taylor looked forward to the end of the war and the return of her husband. As she indicated in a February 4 letter, she was not favor ending the war with an unjust peace, though she did welcome the passage of the 13th Amendment by the U.S. House of Representatives on January 31: "What do you think of the present 'peace movement'? I do not like the way things are being managed - much as I desire peace, let it come on a right basis - in justice or not at all, and let the traitors suffer the penalty of their crime. But it is glory enough for one week that the amendment of the Constitution is passed and slavery is abolished from our land. Thank God for that." In a February 21 letter, Taylor cheered the retaking of Fort Sumter by Union forces and expressed hopes for severe retribution to Confederates: "The flags are all flying here to-day because our glorious banner again waves over Fort Sumter.... I wish Gen. Sherman would not leave one stone upon another in the city of Charleston - but let it be forever waste - an example to all traitors and traitorous cities." When the Confederate capital Richmond fell on April 3, 1865, Hattie joined other Northerners in celebration. She wrote to her husband on April 4 of her happiness that: "the rebel capital is taken.... So long looking for this and now it has come. I can scarcely realize it.... I saw in last night's paper that 'staid New York merchants hugged each other' and every one was almost wild with joy." A week later she celebrated General Lee's surrender to General Grant at Appomattox. "Only think of it! Richmond ours and Lee with his army surrendered! - such rejoicing was never seen before I'm sure. I was so glad I almost cried for joy - we hung out our flag... we could hear bells and gongs all around." The celebrations in the North were, of course, silenced by the assassination of Lincoln. In an April 18, 1865, letter, Taylor expressed her emotions of sadness mixed with anger: "It seems so sad to think Mr. Lincoln is dead. There is mourning everywhere -any 'copper' that dares express joy is silenced. Traitors have added the last drop to their cup of iniquity and it is running over. I hope they will receive no mercy.... It seems sad to see black crape fluttering from the door knobs all along the street. They rode a man on a rail in Chipping hill for saying he ought to have been shot four years ago." In an April 30 letter Hattie informed her husband that she sought retribution: "I hope all implicated may be brought to justice. Gens. Lee, Johnson, Breckinridge, Jeff Davis and all those leaders ought to be hanged!! They have slain their ten thousands and deluged our land in blood. Justice demands it... there is no mercy pleading for them in my heart-but justice, stern justice to traitors-and copper's too- demands a fit punishment for this treason." She was optimistic about President Andrew Johnson, especially in handling the Southern traitors. On May 9 she wrote that, "I have a great deal of confidence in President Johnson. He has a good deal of the Andrew Jackson spirit that I like to see, when rebels and traitors are concerned. Decision and justice - I hope justice will be measured out to them to the brim." Approximately a month later, Charles had mustered out of his unit and returned to Connecticut. An extensive and exhaustive collection of correspondence that provides tremendous detail of a New England home experience of the Civil War.

Text printed within floral frame on scented pink paper. Frontispiece and 12 wood-engraved plates, 1 in colour, and numerous illustrations in the text. Slight wear to extremities, occasional light foxing; an excellent copy. First edition of this historical survey of perfumes and cosmetics by the perfumer Eugène Rimmel, printed on scented rose-tinted paper, "elegantly bound and deliciously perfumed" (The Chemical News and Journal of Industrial Science, 1865, p. 250). This work includes a short summary of the methods of extracting aromas from plants, flowers, and animal products, as well as the principal ingredients in the manufacture of perfume. Rimmel known for his innovation in the field, creating the first "factory-made, non-toxic mascara" and inventing "the 'perfume vaporiser', which he exhibited at the 1862 International Exhibition in South Kensington: a piece of apparatus for diffusing the fragrance of flowers and purifying the atmosphere, it was used on Queen Victoria's yacht as well as at public banquets and in ballrooms, theatres, and sickrooms" (ODNB). "Agreeing with Rousseau that the sense of smell is the sense of imagination, Rimmell claimed that pleasant perfumes exercise a cheering influence on the mind, and refresh the memory, recalling scenes from past life" (ibid.). A work that "not only furnishes food for the mind, but gratifies the eyes and olfactory senses by its beauty and fragrance. Seldom have sense and scents been so happily blended" (The Sporting Review, 1865, p. 471).

        Il Governo rappresentativo.

      Turin: Tipografia della Rivista dei Comuni Italiani,, 1865. Traduzione fatta sull'ultima edizione Inglese da F. P. Fenili. First edition in Italian of Mill's Considerations on Representative Government. 'In his major work on political institutions, Considerations on Representative Government, the decline of individuality and the growing power of mass opinions are major reasons for Mill's advocacy of a number of reforms to protect minorities and to ensure that the influence exerted by educated minds on government is greater than that to which their numerical strength entitles them. But it is a wide-ranging book, and its interest lies as much in the discussion of general principles as in the particular recommendations regarding the ballot, proportional representation, and plural voting, not to mention the treatment of local government, federalism, and nationality' (IESS).

        French Military Marching Band Giberne with French Music Sheets

      Germany, France, circa 1865-1870. Nineteenth century musician's leather pouch (French giberne) containing an albumen cabinet card photograph of the younger Gebrüder Müller (Müller Brothers) string quartet, and some printed music sheets. This is an eclectic mini archive of comprising the following items: One original albumen cabinet card photograph of the younger Gebrüder Müller (Müller Brothers) string quartet, taken by photographer F. Lanitzky in Berlin. Photographer's name and address printed in in gilt to front. Card measures approximately 10,5 x 17,5 cm. Photograph measures approximately 10 x 13,5 cm. Very rare. The group formed in 1855 and performed until 1873. The brothers were Karl Müller-Berghaus (1829- 1907) on the 1st violin, also a conductor and composer; Hugo Müller (1832-1886) on the 2nd violin; Bernhard Müller (1825-1895) on the viola; and Wilhelm Müller (1834-1897) on the cello. The four musicians of the younger Müller Brothers were all sons of Karl Friedrich Müller, who was a member of the senior quartet of the same name, which was active from. Their father was first violin in the senior quartet and was also concertmaster to the Duke of Brunswick, Ägidius Christoph Müller (1765-1841) for whom they performed under an agreement of strict exclusivity until 1830 before performing publicly. Eight printed music sheets for works of French composers, each sheet providing the notes for a specific instrument, including the clarinet, the bugle, and the tenor saxophone. Some of the musical pieces are for "Souvenir d'Haydn" by J. B. Maillochaud, "Le Val Joyeux" by J. Egal, and "Marche Francaise, Le Pere La Victoire" by Louis Ganne." Six music sheets are single leafs printed recto only; two are mounted recto and verso to a cardstock. These musical documents measure approximately 17 x 12 cm, with one being larger. One original French giberne (a leather shoulder bag used in the French military) made prior to the Great War. This case, with its pouch adorned with fine brass motifs of musical instruments, was issued to an Officer of the French military marching band. Made of black leather, with adjustable shoulder strap, brass embellishments, a wrap-around leather closure at the bottom, it was cleverly designed for durability with wooden reinforcement to the interior. Gold ornamentation on a giberne was reserved for officers, while silver was used for the sub-officers. The bag measures approximately 22 x 15 x 4,5 cm.

        Documents attesting to the service of the Maryland slave, Algy Stanley, in the 7th United States Colored Infantry

      Maryland and Virginia, 1865. Very good. This document group include Private Stanley's discharge from Company F, 7th Regiment, U. S. Colored Troops Volunteers, a power of attorney with which Stanley appointed a lawyer to act on his behalf to secure his enlistment and discharge bounties, and the receipt for the payment of those bounties. One of the documets is franked with a 2-cent orange Internal Revene stamp (Scot #R15), and another is franked with a pair of 25-cent orange Power of Attorney revenue stamps (Scott #R48). The documents are in good shape; worn at the edges. The upper left hand corner of all three have been glued together. Although Maryland was a slave state, it never seceeded from the Union, so its slaves were not freed with the Emancipation Proclamation. The could instead, however, earn their freedom by enlisting in the Army with or without their masters consent. In September of 1863, the War Department authorized Colonel William Birney to raise an an infantry regiment, the 7th Regiment of United States Colored Troops, from the slaves an free blacks of Maryland. Men who enlisted were to receive a bounty of $50 for signing up, and if they completed their tour sucessfully, they were to receive an additional discharge bonus of $50. To make the loss of a slave more palatable, slave owner's who could prove their ownership of an enlistee were also entitle to a $100 bounty. Stanley was the property of Thomas J. Lecompte when he enlisted on 27 September 1863. Initially the regiment was sent to Florida and South Carolina where its daily routine of garrison, guard, and labor duties was occassional interupted with a skirmish or two. in Florida and South Carolina. However in August of 1864, the 7th moved into central Virginia and served in the seige operations against Petersburg and Richmond. Stanley was wounded on August 25th during this campaign and subsequently hospitalized at Fortress Monroe where he mostly remained until discharged in 1865. In addition to the the three original documents in the grouping, I've included photostat excerpts from Stanley's official Army record as well as Lecompte's Evidence of Title and ownership statement documenting that Stanley was his property at the time of enlistement. Colored Troops discharges are relatively uncommon, however they turn up regulary at auction. Almost all, however are for African-Americans who were free men before the war began or who were freed as the result of the Emancipation Proclamation. Documents for actual slaves who enlisted from the slave states that remained in the Union (Maryland, Kentucky, and Missouri) are very scarce. As of 2017, there are none for sale in the trade and no auction records at OCLC or the Rare Book Hub. Although there are no similar institutional records per OCLC, OCLC does identify "one certificate . . . freeing a slave and his family as a reward for his service in the Confederate army.," which is located at the New York Historical Society.

        Albumen Photograph

      np: np, 1865. EXTREMELY RARE LARGE-FORMAT ICONIC ALBUMEN PHOTOGRAPH OF ABRAHAM LINCOLN AS PRESIDENT. Captured by Anthony Berger, head photographer and manager of Mathew Brady's Washington D.C. Studio, this image persists as one of the most iconic and well-recognized photos of Lincoln. Upon achieving fame as the nation's first photojournalist for his gripping images of the Civil War battlefield, Brady set up studios in both New York and Washington D.C. so that he could photograph famous citizens, presidents, and politicians. However, he did little of the photographing himself, instead employing men like Anthony Berger and successor Alexander Gardner to create what would become some of the most recognized photos of the sixteenth president.Taken on February 9, 1864, this image--dubbed 0-92 by Anthony Berger-- is one of many famous photographs to come out of the February photo session. Other photographs include Lincoln with young son Tad on his lap and Lincoln in profile, a photo which was used when designing the penny. This photo, however, was known as the five-dollar bill pose; it was used to produce an oval engraving of the president, which was reproduced on the old five-dollar bill printed from 1914 until 2008.Robert Todd Lincoln--the president's eldest son and U.S Secretary of War during the Garfield administration-- sent a copy of this photo to renowned collector Frederick Meserve nearly thirty years after his father's death, commenting:   "I have always thought the Brady photograph of my father, of which I attach a copy, to be the most satisfactory likeness of him."This photo, like many images of Lincoln, was innumerably replicated, but most significantly by Anthony Bicknell Carpenter in his painting The First Reading of the Emancipation Proclamation Before the Cabinet, an image which is still displayed in the United States Capitol. The painter spent six months at the white house completing the painting, an artist-in-residency which he later wrote about in his 1866 memoir. Additionally, many used this photo as inspiration when commemorating the president in posthumous lithographic and print reproductions.This albumen photograph bears the imprint "Brady & Co., Entered according to Act of Congress, by Brady & Co., in the year 1865, in Clerk's Office of District Court for District of Columbia. Washington" and was almost certainly printed in 1865, the year Lincoln was assassinated.Unique because of its large size and lack of vignette, this photo is regarded as one of the original, unretouched albumen prints that provided visual fodder for countless paintings, lithographs, and CDV's in the years post-Civil War.In a very early frame under UV-protected museum glass.Size: Approx. 5.25x7.375 inches (photograph alone); 9.5x7 inches (framed).Albumen print. Housed in early - possibly contemporary - elegant wood frame. Card mount reads "Brady & Co., Entered According To Act Of Congress, By Brady & Co., In The Year 1865, In Clerk's Office Of District Court For District Of Columbia. Washington." A few dark spots; otherwise in nearly perfect condition. A CLASSIC LINCOLN PHOTO, RARE IN SUCH LARGE, UNRETOUCHED FORMAT. FINE CONDITION. Fine.

        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 Studies on brain and spinal cord of man and mammals are found in his personal estate. They are in the form of an unfinished manuscript.. Deiters' outstanding text begins with the following words: 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... 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)? 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. 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' schematic picture (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 an irregularly shaped mass of protoplasma of granular appearance. 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 protoplasmic processes (Protoplasmafortsätze). The dendrites repeatedly bifurcate they finally become so thin that they lose themselves in the porous ground-substance 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 axonal process (Nervenfaser- oder Axencylinder-fortsatz) i.e., the portion of the axon seen to be directly attached to the soma and the axon proper (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 at a distance which approximately equals the diameter of the cell body. 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 axon neck - macabre indeed: where is the head? - be replaced by Deiters' constriction.) 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 second extensive system of very small axons which are attached to the dendrites. 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, a second system of egressing axons (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."

        The Man Without a Country

      Boston: Ticknor & Fields, 1865. Near Fine. First edition, first issue without the publisher's announcement slip tipped in. 12mo. 23, [1]pp. Terra-cotta printed wrappers. Very slight spotting on the wrappers, still fine. Fictitious tale of patriotism lost and found, cannily composed during the Civil War as a true inspirational incident, the story was an immediate sensation and instilled a sense of nationalism to a fractured Union. A particularly nice copy.

      Paris, 28. VII. 1865. - 2¾ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. An Frau Chardin, eine Vertraute der Familie Liszt: "[.] j'attendais mon fils qui â été dans plusieurs journeaux annoncé, pour écrire l'adresse sur la lettre à vous. mais il ne pas encor venne et je doute qu'il vient de sitot. il m'a souhaité ma féte de St. Anne par le télégraphe. j'attende une lettre de lui. des journeaux ici dise qu'il est à la campagne auprés de St. Pére, mais je ne le crois pas, ça sera trop de faveur [.]". - Zwei Tage darauf, am 30. Juli 1865, sollte Liszt die vier niederen Weihen empfangen" (vgl. Serge Gut, "Franz Liszt", dt. Ausg. 2009, S. 764).
