        Der muntre Hahn

      . Bleistift auf Papier, unten links monogrammiert: "AvW", darunter bezeichnet: "Weihnachten 1865" (?), daneben von fremder Hand bezeichnet: "Original v. A v. Werner, (...)", 27,7 x 19,8 cm. Heutzutage ist Anton von Werner hauptsächlich durch seine großformatigen und nahezu fotorealistischen Historienbilder aus der wilhelminischen Ära bekannt. Dabei ist er all zu oft weniger als Maler denn als Stichwortgeber für die Bebilderung des letzten deutschen Kaiserreiches präsent. Doch Werner war auch ein hervorragender Zeichner und Illustrator, was häufig vergessen wird. Unser arabesker Entwurf für ein Gedicht ist hierfür ein wunderbarer Beleg. Diese Kunst erlernte er von keinem geringeren als dem "König der Arabeske", Adolf Schroedter. Seit er 1862 in Karlsruhe studierte, besuchte er seinen Unterricht. Später heiratete er darüber hinaus Schroedters Tochter Malvine. Entscheidend für Werners Illustrationstätigkeit war aber die im gleichen Jahr begonnene Freundschaft mit dem Dichter Joseph Victor von Scheffel. Für ihn schuf er mehrere Bildzyklen zu seinen Werken, darunter auch Scheffels damals überaus berühmtes Buch "Der Trompeter von Säckingen". Zu Scheffels "Ekkehard" ersann Werner ein monumentales Bildprogramm mit über 200 Illustrationen. Das Projekt wurde allerdings nie fertiggestellt. Für den jungen Maler war die im 19. Jahrhundert enorme Bekannt- und Beliebtheit von Scheffel ein wichtiger Motor seiner Kunstkarriere. Unser Blatt ist ein Vorentwurf für ein Gedicht "Der muntre Hahn", das möglicherweise im Zusammenhang mit dem von Werner illustrierten Buch "Deutsches Leben in Liedern" von 1865 oder dem "Illustrierten Volksliederbuch" entstanden ist.

        Thomas Spencer Wells autograph letter to Horatio Storer on Ovariotomy + 7 letters on gynecology by others

      1865 - Important 19th-Century A.Ls.s. on Abdominal Hysterectomy and Ovariotomy STORER, Horatio R. (1830-1922). Collection of 8 A.Ls.s. to Storer from 8 different physicians, October 8, 1865-November 19, 1878. Various sizes. 16pp. in all, plus postmarked cover to one letter, and a small sepia-toned photograph of a portrait of Benjamin Waterhouse (very faded, chipped and creased). Creased where folded, otherwise fine. A fascinating collection of letters written to one of the foremost American gynecologists of the nineteenth century, mostly pertaining to his successful operation for abdominal hysterectomy-the fourth such operation performed in the United States. The D.A.B. cites Storer as the establisher of the specialty of gynecology, "not hitherto recognized as a distinct branch of medicine," and he was a founder of the Journal of the Gynaecological Society of Boston, the first journal devoted exclusively to the diseases of women. He published many books on gynecological and related topics, including several on abortion, to which he was opposed. His major surgical achievements were the operation for abdominal hysterectomy and the performance, in 1868, of the world's first cesarean-hysterectomy. Storer's correspondents included some of the most distinguished names in American and English surgery: T. Spencer Wells (1818-97), whom Ricci (p. 477) called "the greatest ovariotomist of the preantiseptic age" (see G-M 6056); Edmund Randolph Peaslee (1817-78), author of Ovarian Tumors; Their Pathology, Diagnosis and Treatment, Especially by Ovariotomy, 1872) and performer of the second double ovariotomy in America (1850); Washington Atlee (1808-78), who operated successfully on vesico-vaginal fistula (1860; see G-M 6047), and who together with his brother John performed the first abdominal myomectomy (1844); Willard Parker (1800-1884), the first American to operate for appendicitis (1867; see G-M 3564); Isaac Hays (1796-1879), longtime editor of the American Journal of the Medical Sciences; Henry Austin Martin (1824-84), who was the first to write on the use of adhesive plaster in surgery. The collection also includes letters from James[?] Dana and J. A. Menzies, who are not noticed in our references. In 1866 Storer published his account of the "Successful Removal of the Uterus and Both Ovaries by Abdominal Section" in the January number of the American Journal of the Medical Sciences. No fewer than five of the eight letters in this collection refer to Storer's operation, the report of which he must have circulated prior to its publication in the journal, as three of these five letters were written in late 1865. Isaac Hays, the editor of the journal that published Storer's paper, wrote to him on October 8 to refer him to Koeberle's performance of the first successful extirpation of the uterus and ovaries (1863; see G-M 6052). Washington Atlee, in his letter of November 19, discussed an unconfirmed report of a hysterectomy performed by Dr. Land, noted that his own brother John had never removed a uterus, and referred Storer to the account of Baker Brown's fatal case in the October 1865 number of the American Journal of the Medical Sciences. Willard Parker, in his letter of November 29, stated that he had never performed abdominal hysterectomy but had once removed a prolapsed uterus through the vulva. The more important of the remaining two letters referring to Storer's operation was that of E. R. Peaslee, written on March 8, 1866; it praised Storer's report as "a most interesting and a very able paper" and one that "must convince all candid minds that extirpation of the uterus is sometimes a justifiable operation." The remaining letter in this series was written on March 5, 1866 by James[?] Dana, who described himself as having "been now almost forty years out of medical practice." Of the three letters that do not mention Storer's operation, the most valuable by far is that of Spencer Wells, who wrote to Storer on April 17, 1867 to discuss his [Attributes: Soft Cover]

The other signers include Henry J. Bigelow (1818-90), professor of surgery and author of the formal announcement of the discovery of surgical anesthesia (Garrison-Morton 5651); George Cheyne Shattuck (1813-93), professor of medical theory and practice and one of the founders of the Boston Medical Library; David Humphreys Storer (1804-91), professor of obstetrics and medical jurisprudence and one of the commissioners of the Natural History Survey of the Massachusetts Commonwealth; Henry Ingersoll Bowditch (1808-92), professor of clinical medicine, founder of the Massachusetts Board of Health and pioneer of the operation for removal of pleural effusions (Garrison-Morton 3168.1); and Thomas Hill (1818-91), president of Harvard University from 1862 to 1868 and designer of an award-winning instrument for calculating eclipses. The remaining signers are Edward H. Clarke (1820-77), professor of materia medica and co-author of A Century of American Medicine 1776-1876 (Garrison-Morton 6586); John Barnard Swett Jackson (1806-79), professor of pathological anatomy; Calvin Ellis (1826-83), adjunct professor of medical theory and practice; and John Bacon (1817-81), professor of chemistry. The diploma was issued to Horace George Miller, who later became one of the most distinguished eye and ear specialists in the state of Rhode Island; see JAMA (June 13, 1908), p. 2014.

        3 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Purkersdorf u.a., 1865-71.. Zus. 6 S. auf Briefpapier mit dem blindgepr. gekrönten Monogramm, Kl.-8°.. Die Trauzeugin und Freundin von Königin Victoria heiratete 1845 den Diplomaten Baron John Bloomfield, der 1861 britischer Botschafter in Österreich wurde und mit dem sie von 1861-1871 in Purkersdorf bei Wien lebte. - Lady Bloomfield veröffentlichte u.a. das zweibändige Werk "Reminiscences of Court and Diplomatic Life" (London, 1883), in dem sie ihr Leben als Hofdame und Frau eines hochrangigen Diplomaten schildert. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. -

Ex-libris e timbri di possesso del Duca d'Aosta. Ottima copia. Seconda edizione, postuma, di quest'opera di alta divulgazione astronomica del grande scienziato francese. Amplissimo indice analitico in fine dell'ultimo vol. "Arago was concerned with optical instruments that proved useful for a variety of purposes, in physics and meteorology as well as in astronomy, for which they were mainly devised. In 1811, he invented the polariscope to determine the degree of polarization of light rays by passing them successively through a mica or rock-crystal polarizer and an Iceland spar analyzer. He transformed it into a polarimeter which he used to verify one of the few mathematically expressed laws he discovered. In 1815, he built a primitive cyanometer to measure the degree of blueness of the atmosphere. In 1833, he proposed a photometer to measure comparative intensities of stellar light. He also perfected an ocular micrometer for measuring small angles, which was erroneously attributed to William Pearson. The workings of all these instruments, based upon polarization phenomena, were expounded with great clarity and enthusiasm in Arago's public lectures at the observatory, published posthumously as Astronomie populaire".

Folio, approximately 420 x 275 mm, 16½ x 11 inches, title page vignette of Bishop Cranmer, small vignette of Cotham Tower on verso dedication page, decorated initials, pictorial headpieces, pages: viii, 41, (3), 51 numbered plates, 2 tables (1 folded) and 14 original leaves from the Bibles described, bound in 19th century quarter leather over marbled boards, 4 gilt rules, a single small gilt ornament and gilt lettering, marbled endpapers. Just slightly rubbed at head and tail of spine, corners worn with slight loss of marbled paper, large closed tear to lower inner corner of folding table, contents very clean and bright, binding tight and firm.

First leaf trimmed at the top with loss of part of heading, otherwise all 14 original leaves in very good state. "Most copies (of the Great Bibles of 1539-41) appear to be mixed; doubtless, many copies were originally issued in this state. The problem is further complicated by the fact that certain leaves of some editions were reprinted, apparently because the supply of these particular leaves had run short and they were required to complete copies then being made up.... Fry attempted to ascertain what leaves properly belonged to each edition and to make a list of the 'reprinted leaves' ... his work remains a monument of painstaking research".

        A DESCRIPTION OF THE RECENTLY DISCOVERED PETROLEUM REGION IN CALIFORNIA, WITH A REPORT ON THE SAME.

      New York: Francis & Loutrel, February 1865. - [2],iii,[1],24,[1]pp. plus folding map and folding cross-section. Original printed wrappers. 1 1/2-inch semi- circular closed tear on front wrapper, with no paper loss. Wrappers a bit soiled, worn along spine. Small light stain in upper margin of first few leaves. Some light edge wear to the map. Overall very good. This is Silliman's second report on the oil region in Santa Barbara County, California, following a similarly titled study issued the year before (which did not have the folding map contained in the present issue). Silliman was a chemistry professor at Yale, and his reports are the most important early studies of petroleum in the United States (chiefly in Pennsylvania and California). He outlined the principal methods for preparing and purifying petroleum, and discovered its chief uses. Silliman's surveys commanded high fees from the petroleum companies, raising ethical questions in the scientific community. This report describes the oil wealth in lands owned by the California Petroleum Company. The map shows the location of the company's lands around Ojai, in Santa Barbara County, and the cross- section shows the "ideal section from Buenaventura to Mupu Arroyo." The company was capitalized at $10,000,000 and issued 100,000 shares at $100 each, with one-tenth of the capital stock reserved for working capital. Silliman concludes "that the promise of a remarkable development at Buenaventura is far better than it was in the Pennsylvania or Ohio regions - since so famous." The Eberstadts called this report "the beginning of the petroleum industry in the West." SABIN 81051. COWAN, p.588 (note). STREETER SALE 2903. GIDDENS, p.167. ROCQ 15489. EBERSTADT 133:801.

        General Nelson A. Miles, in command of Fort Monroe, reports that ìthe prisoner ëDavisí is feeling quite comfortable this morning ... I do not think it possible for him to escape, even if the sentinels are taken out of the front room, he will still be under two locks, aside from the Guard in front of his cell.î

      Fort Monroe, Virginia: , August 22, 1865 Autograph Letter Signed ìNelson A. Milesî as ìBvt Maj Gen U.S. Vols / Comdg Dist.,î two conjoined pages, 7.75î x 9.75î. Head Quarters Military District, Fort Monroe, August 22, 1865. To an unnamed General, undoubtedly Assistant Adjutant General Edward D. Townsend to whom Miles sent all his reports about the prisoners and mail to be forwarded. Ink stain at top right of first page. Expertly strengthened on verso at folds. Fine condition. In full, ìI have the honor to state that the prisoner ëDavisí is feeling quite comfortable this morning, complaining a little however of erysipelas in the face and a carbuncle on his leg. I also enclose a communication from [Clement] Clay to the ëSec of Warí together with a letter to his wife which he desires, forwarded. In regard to the Sentinels, when they were taken out of his room he said they did not disturbe or waken him, lately they have been required to make as little noise as possible and not to walk around in the room. I do not think it possible for him to escape, even if the sentinels are taken out of the front room, he will still be under two locks, aside from the Guard in front of his cell.î On May 19, 1865, the propeller vessel ìWilliam P. Clydeî arrived at Hampton Roads, Virginia, with Confederate prisoners aboard including Jefferson Davis and Confederate Senator and diplomatic agent Clement Claiborne Clay. On May 22nd, Major General Nelson A. Miles arrived to take command of Fort Monroe. From ìPrison Life of Jefferson Davisî by Bvt. Lt. Col. John J. Craven, M.D., ìLate Surgeon U.S. Vols., and Physician of the Prisoner during his Confinement in Fortress Monroe, from May 25, 1865, up to December 25, 1865î (New York: G.W. Dillingham Co., 1866): ìThe procession into the fort was simple though momentous ... First came Major-General Miles holding the arm of Mr. Davis, who was dressed in a suit of plain Confederate grey, with a grey slouched hatóalways thin, and now looking much wasted and very haggard. Immediately after these came Colonel Prichard [Michigan Cavalry] accompanying Mr. Clay, with a guard of soldiers in their rear ... Mr. Davis was shown into casemate No. 2 and Clay into No. 4, guards of soldiers being stationed in the cells numbered 1, 3, and 5, upon each side of them. They entered; the heavy doors clanged behind them, and in that clang was rung the final knell of the terrible, but now extinct, rebellion ... On the morning of the 23d of May, a yet bitterer trial was in store for the proud spirit ñ a trial severer, probably, than has ever in modern times been inflicted upon any one who had enjoyed such eminence. This morning Jefferson Davis was shackled ... These fetters were of heavy iron, probably five-eighths of an inch in thickness, and connected together by a chain of like weight ... On the morning of May 24th, I was sent for about half-past 8 A.M., by Major-General Miles; was told that State-prisoner Davis complained of being ill, and that I had been assigned as his medical attendant ... ìAugust 21st. ñ Called with Captain Corlis, on the staff of General Miles, Officer of the Day. Prostration increased, and the erysipelas spreading. Deemed it my duty to send a communication to Major-General Miles, reporting that I found the State-prisoner, Davis, suffering severely from erysipelas in the face and head, accompanied by the usual prostration attending that disease. Also that he had a small carbuncle on his left thigh, his condition denoting a low state of the vital forces...î The information in Dr. Cravenís communication to Miles was included by the General in this letter penned the next day. Ellis Paxson Oberholtzer, in ìA History of the United States Since the Civil Warî (New York: The Macmillan Company, 1917), wrote about Davis in Fort Monroe. In part, ìThe President of the Confederacy suffered from insomnolency, dyspepsia, neuralgia, boils, carbuncles, erysipelas. Never during any night since his incarceration had he slept for two hours continuously. The creaking boots of the sentinels as they paced the floor, even after it was covered with straw matting, the noise as they hailed each other, the light in his room, his nervous and physical diseases, the lack of full opportunity for exercise were noted by the physician, who made so unfavorable a statement that many thought the distinguished culprit could not live for trial for his crimes.î In this letter, General Miles notes that the sentinels are ìrequired to make as little noise as possible.î For keeping Jefferson Davis shackled in his cell, General Miles was the target of severe criticism, even in the North.

        UNION PRISONERS CONFINED IN CAMP SUMPTER. NEAR ANDERSONVILLE, GA

      Annapolis: Charles A. Schwab, 1865.. Annapolis: Charles A. Schwab, 1865.. Color lithograph, 11 1/4 x 17 inches. Lightly and evenly tanned. A few small dampstains around the edges, not affecting image. Very good. A bird's eye view of the dreaded Andersonville prison. The print shows the stockade and prison grounds, with the prisoners in a tightly crowded camp and six bodies hanging from a scaffold in the right center. A numbered key denotes headquarters, "Rebel camp," the hospital, the cookhouse, and the "deadhouse." This notoriously overcrowded prisoner of war camp was the scene of death and deprivation; over a third of prisoners held there died while imprisoned before the camp was liberated in May, 1865. The commander of the camp, Confederate officer Henry Wirz, was executed after the war for crimes related to his control over the camp. This was evidently published A rare print and iconic image, with copies located at the American Antiquarian Society, New Haven Historical Society, and the Buffalo Historical Society. Andersonville was opened in February, 1864, and conditions there quickly became intolerable. This lithograph would seem to depict things as they stood in the summer of 1864, datable for two reasons. First, the original stockade was double in size, to the other side of a small creek, in June 1864, and this shows a stockade enclosing closely crowded ground on on side of the stream, but nothing within the stockaded enclosure on the other. Secondly, in the spring of 1864 a group of prisoners called the "Andersonville Raiders" came together among the Federal troops, who instituted a reign of terror among the inmates, co- opting all food and clothing. Countering them, another group of inmates called the "Regulators" arose and overthre the "Raiders". With the permission of the Confederate authorities, they meted out rough justice, including hanging six of the "Raiders" leaders. This occurred in July, 1864, and is evidently the hangings depicted in the camp. This unique moment is not preserved in other views of the notorious camp, which was not liberated until May, 1865.

        "A dictionary of the Hawaiian language, to which is appended an English-Hawaiian vocabulary and a chronological table of remarkable events."

      Honolulu: Henry M. Whitney, 1865 Honolulu: Henry M. Whitney. 1865. "First edition thus, being a second and much expanded version of Andrews' earlier A Vocabulary of Words in the Hawaiian Language, Lahaina, 1836 which is the first dictionary printed in the Pacific; 8vo, pp. xvi, 559; text in double column; full contemporary sheep, worn, and with restoration at the extremities; good and sound. The Hawaiian press was first established in Honolulu in 1822 and later at Lahaina in 1834 by Lorrin Andrews, a missionary who claimed some experience in printing. In June of 1834 it was voted by the mission that Andrews prepare a vocabulary of the Hawaiian language. He drew upon a manuscript vocabulary of words collected by Elisha Loomis, one of the first colonizers of the islands under Hiram Bingham; and, a manuscript vocabulary of words was ""arranged, it is believed, in part by Mr. Ely, at the request of the Mission, and finished by Mr. Bishop. A copy of this was received and transcribed by [Andrews] in the summer of 1829 ... In using this manuscript, the same method was taken as with the vocabulary of Mr. Loomis. New words, new definitions of words before collected, increased the size of the book to a considerable extent"" (compiler's Preface to the 1836 edition, reprinted herein). A further revised edition appeared in 1922. Vancil, p. 8; this edition not in Zaunmuller."

        Attorney General James Speed justifies the trial of the Lincoln assassination conspirators by military commission rather than in the civilian courts: "When lawless wretches become so impudent and powerful as not to be controlled and governed by the ordinary tribunals of a country, armies are called out, and the laws of war invoked

      Washington, DC: , 1865 Opinion on the Constitutional Power of the Military to Try and Execute the Assassins of the President, Attorney General James Speed (1864 ñ 1866), Washington: Government Printing Office, 1865, 5.5î x 8.5î, 16 pages in titled paper wraps. Disbound, light uneven toning and marginal wear. An important argument justifying the use of military commission to render justice in times of national emergency, with ramifications to this day. Though a border state moderate from Kentucky, James Speed quickly became a staunch Union man with the outbreak of war. His loyalty was rewarded by Abraham Lincoln, who appointed him Attorney General in 1864. Following Lincoln's assassination in 1865, there was much debate on the appropriate venue in which to try the alleged assassins and plotters. Attorney General Speed argued that the accused conspirators should be tried by military commission, rather than through the civil courts, arguing that the law of war, as part of the law of nations, has implicitly been adopted in the Constitution. The laws of war did not require different treatment of "secret active enemies" and "open active enemies", who would be tried by military tribunal. Under these circumstances, the alleged assassins could be tried by military court without a jury.

        Original Broadside from the Town of Washington, Illinois, Regarding a Stolen Horse

      Town of Washington, Illinois, 1865. Town of Washington, Illinois, 1865. Reward for return of stolen horse. Original broadside. Single-leaf, measuring approximately 6.5 inches x 5.5 inches. Mild foxing, otherwise in very good, original condition retaining a strong impression. An early document from the area, the town of Washington in Tazewell County having been founded only thirty one years prior in 1834, posted by civilian, Reverend J. W. Phillips. The victim of the heinous crime of horse-stealing provides a very detailed description of his horse, and offers a substantial reward for his return, this broadside is quite unique in that it is posted by a single individual for a personal cause. Most broadsides were issued by government offices or sheriffs. Phillips was a Methodist pastor in Washington, and for a time, church elder in the nearby village of Rossville. "$100 REWARD!""Stolen from Tazewell County, Illinois, June 9th, 1865, a DARK BAYHORSE... six years old, jet black mane and tail... dim star in forehead, small splint inside left fore leg... spot 3/4 inch square free from hair... under bridge of the harness... Is full 15 hands high... weighs 1,100 pounds..." For the return of this Horse to the undersigned, I will give $100 reward, if not badly injured, or for information that will lead to his recover, I will give $25. J. W. PHILLIPS. Washington, Tazewell County, Illinois. In the nineteenth century, horse-stealing became an ongoing concern, particularly in the Great Plains states, Texas, and other western states that were sparsely populated and negligibly policed. The crime affected farmers, most citizens, and even migrants headed west through the Great Plains, Horse thieves garnered a particularly pernicious reputation as they left their victims helpless or greatly handicapped without their horses. Such depredation led to the use of the term horse thief as an insult, one that conveys the lack of all moral decency. .
