        Our American Cousin: A Drama, in 3 Acts

      [New York:] Printed, But Not Published, 1869, 1869. First edition. Fine copy.. 12mo, original blue wrappers, 46 pages. The most famous play (of many) by Tom Taylor (1817-1880) and arguably the most famous play of the 19th century: it was being performed at Ford's Theater, Washington, D.C., on April 14, 1865, when halfway through Act III John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln - thus immortalizing a farcical comedy which otherwise would have been long since forgotten. The American rights to Our American Cousin were purchased by New York theater owner Laura Keene in 1858. It was immensely popular and was still being performed more than ten years later, but there was no printed version of it until this one in 1869. Keene had shrewdly stated on the title-page that it was "Printed, but not published" - a step taken to protect her valuable rights from unscrupulous theater owners who could produce plays that had been "published" because copyright laws did not give them adequate protection. On the verso of the title-page is list of the cast at the first performance at Ms. Keene's theater on October 15, 1858, which included Joseph Jefferson. Manuscript title on the upper wrapper.

        Menes and Cheops Identified in History Under Different Names: With Other Cosas

      London: Longmans, Green and Co 1869 - London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1869, First Edition. 8vo - 22.9cm. (7), 343 pp., (24) - publisher's advertisements. Publisher's brown cloth with Egyptian fret design de-bossed borders on covers, black facing winged serpents on front cover with black fret border; spine with bright gilt titles and gilt ruling at top and bottom; sepia clay end leaves, half-title page, frontis plus 4 woodcut illustrations, one comparative chart and one diagram. No prior ownership markings, binding strong and in near fine condition, no foxing. A complete copy of a very scarce publication. This is Carl von Rikart's rationale for aligning the chronology of Egyptian dynasties with the history of the bible. Rikart demonstrates the conflicts and variations of earlier similar attempts at establishing Egyptian chronologies covering 20 dynasties as laid out by Egyptologists Reichardt (Richard) Lepsius, Christian Bunsen, Edward Lane and William Osburn.

Eindrucksvolle Landschaftsstudie, entstanden zu Beginn des 1. Italienaufenthaltes! Kanoldt war Schüler von Friedrich Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878) in Weimar. 1869-1872 lebte er in Rom und wurde dort von Heinrich Dreber, gen. Franz-Dreber (1822-1875) entscheidend beeinflußt. Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt in München kehrte er 1873 wieder nach Italien zurück. Dort engagierte er sich erfolgreich für die Rettung des berühmten Eichenhains „La Serpentara" bei Olevano, der für die deutsch-römischen Maler als Studienterrain große Bedeutung erlangt hatte. Mittels gesammelter Spendenmittel erwarb er den von Abholzung bedrohten Hain und vermachte ihn dem Deutschen Reich „als unveräußerliches und unantastbares Nationaleigentum". Seit 1876 war er in Karlsruhe tätig, wo er sich besonders an Ferdinand Keller (1842-1922) anschloß. 1892 rettete er die „Serpentara" erneut, da sie zu verwildern drohte.

A manuscript Victorian lace sample book entirely written in fine handwriting (fountain pen) by Marie Vachoiz and comprising 70 original samples of hand-made crocheted, knitted, and bobbin lace samples, 68 of them beautifully mounted on thick coloured paper and then tipped-in, two tipped-in directly onto the sheets (lightly ruled paper). Title page: "Chahier de Dentelle (in heavy lettering) [starting of penciled lettering] [a string of numerals ] 1869, Marie Vachoiz." The quality of the lace presented here represents a significant expertise and polish in producing handmade lace. The text details 81 different patterns in manuscript (with 70 actual samples) and at the end offers a few pages discussing the specifics of producing knitted and crochet laces. An important work in the sense of its teaching parameter, rarely found thus, with examples and copious explanations, in manuscript form, and the extent of these suggest a work perhaps made in anticipation of publication. The superb patterns detailed in elegant cursive include those M. Vachoiz has identified as the Spider, the Laf, Tortoiseshell, the Scale, Pyramids, Snowflake, Valencian, and many others. A superbly preserved survival, with all the examples in perfect condition. Boards somewhat worn at corners, well-preserved internally. Laid in is a fine pen and ink engraving transferred onto gold leaf paper (unknown if this was owned by the author or laid in by a subsequent owner).

        MANUSCRIPT EUROPEAN TOUR BY AMERICAN FAMILY IN 1869/70

      ANON [Avery Family] Journal to the Continent in 1869-70 by a resident of Utica, N.Y. Bound in worn leather notebook.Internally very readable and tidy. The journal covers part of a European tour which begins in New York in October 1869 and ends in Geneva at the end of April 1870. It consists of a 247 page transcript from the letters written by the traveller mostly to her sister Lillie in Utica, New York State. Although not identified (though probably identifiable), the writer is accompanied by another sister, both of them from Utica. They in turn are travelling with 'the Averys'. This family we can identify - Benjamin Franklin Avery, his wife Susanna, and their children. Benjamin Franklin Avery was born in Aurora NY in 1801. After studying law, he went on to set up a highly successful plow factory in Louisville, Kentucky, said to have become, by the end of the nineteenth century, the largest manufactory of plows in the world. The party cross the Atlantic in the 'Malta', stop in Liverpool, Chester and Coventry on their way south to London. They engage in sight-seeing, listen to a sermon by Mr Spurgeon, visit the Field Lane Ragged School, and attend the opening of Blackfriars Bridge. In mid-November they sail from Southampton to Le Havre and move on to Paris. They meet J.R. Walker and his wife with whom they have mutual friends in Utica. They do much sight-seeing, sometimes with the guidance of Mr Walker. In December the Averys take their children to Geneva to place the boys in a boarding school and meet up with the two ladies later in Avignon. From Marseilles they head along the coast through Nice and Menton to Genoa, and at the end of December reach Rome. After six weeks visiting the sights of Rome including religious services at which the Pope was present, they move on to Naples. Here they take in the usual sights - Baiai, Pompeii, the royal palaces. Only Mr and Mrs Avery take on the ascension of Vesuvius: Mrs A. went up to the crater, aided in the ascent by a guide who with a strap over his shoulders pulled her after him as he mounted to the summit. The fatigue and exhaustion on her part was so great that she fainted, but a glass of wine and a few minutes rest restored her and was soon able to follow the party. In Salerno on their way to Paestum, they meet three ladies from South Carolina, the Misses Campbell and two from Elisabeth, N.J., Miss Magee and Mrs Fonda, bound for the same destination. Bad weather prevents their reaching Capri to see the Blue Grotto, so they return to Rome, where more visits are made and Gertie Avery sits for a portrait by Thomas Buchanan Read. By the beginning of April they are in Florence, glad to have left Rome 'as there is something of a panic among the Americans caused by the Roman fever which has carried off so many Americans'. After nearly three weeks in Florence the party moves north, but in Bologna the writer has an 'attack of Rheumatic fever' and is treated by an Italian physician. While she recovers, the Averys visit Venice and the party is reunited in Milan. At the end of April they reach Geneva where the Avery children are at the station to meet them on their arrival. Here the journal comes to an end. Visit our website on www.johnunderwoodbooks.com for other interesting books!

        John Wisden's Cricketers' Almanack for 1869 - 1869 Wisden Cricketers Almanac, Facsimile Wrappers

      On offer here is an 1869 Wisden Cricketers Almanac in entirely original condition apart from the facsimile wrappers. 1869 is commonly regarded as the second scarcest Wisden after the 1875 edition. The copy on offer here has been recently fitted with facsimile wrappers which are in excellent, as new condition. The remainder of the book is entirely original. The title page has the odd very minor mark and the contents page has a little, very light foxing as does the last page - at page 120. Apart from this the contents are in absolutely immaculate, clean condition - original, unmarked and clean. A really excellent example of a very scarce year.

The insects (published in 1869) are by the Dutch entomologist Samuel Constantinus Snellen van Vollenhoven (1816-1880) and the Belgian entomologist and ornithologist Baron Edmond de Sélys Longchamps (1813-1900). Snellen described new species of Coleoptera, Orthoptera, Lepidoptera, and Hemiptera; Deslongchamps a new genus and two new species of Odonata. The Crustacea and Echinodermata are by C. K. Hoffmann (published in 1874), and include species from Réunion. In this part the plates are not coloured. Finally, the Mollusca of Madagascar and Réunion are treated by J. G. de Man (1877). Included are marine, freshwater and terrestrial species. The plates are beautifully coloured. In the rear, the original printed front wrappers of all three sections, and the rear wrapper of the Insecta, with the printed prospectus, are bound in. The wrapper edge of the Mollusca is reinforced with Japanese paper. On the front pastedown the armorial bookplate of C. J. Koldewey, co-author of "Feathers to brush. The Victorian bird artist John Gerrard Keulemans 1842-1912" (published in 1982), and the small, oval bookplate of J. C. Puls, "Pharmacien & Droguiste" in Gand, Belgium. The two insect plates, with colourful beetles and butterflies, are double; on the first, two original drawings by the great Dutch-British zoology illustrator Keulemans are tipped in, on the second, one original butterfly plate is tipped in. It is very rare to see original artwork by Keulemans. A few scattered spots. Slight damage to the front board top corner. In all a truly exceptional copy of this rare publication.

M., in Bremen erzogen, studierte von 1846 an in Bonn, wo er sich mit besonderer Vorliebe den Naturwissenschaften widmete, wurde 1851 Dr. med. mit der Diss.: »Ossium mutationes osteomalacia universali affectae«, machte 1852 eine wissenschaftl. Reise nach Paris, wurde noch in demselben Jahre Assistent an Wutzer`s chir. Klinik und erlangte als solcher, bei Zunahme des Alters und der Sehschwäche desselben, frühzeitig eine grosse Selbständigkeit im chir. Denken und Handeln. 1853 habilitierte er sich als Dozent der Chir., gab sich fortab auch mit grossem Eifer pathol.-anat. Forschungen hin, für deren Gründlichkeit mehrere in diese Zeit fallende Arbeiten die besten Belege abgeben. Daher kam es, als ihm, nach dem Rücktritte Wutzer`s vom Lehramte (1855), die durch Busch 1856 wieder besetzte Professur nicht zu Teil wurde, dass er von dem Lehrkörper die Aufforderung erhielt, sich ganz der bis dahin in Bonn speziell noch nicht vertretenen pathol. Anat. zu widmen. W., der noch 1 Jahr bei Busch Assistent blieb, ging darauf ein, wurde 1857 a. o., 1862 ord. Prof. der pathol. Anat. und widmete sich diesem Fache mit ganzem Eifer. Daneben leitete er die chir. Abteilung des evangel. Spitals und blieb dadurch auch als Chirurg, wenn auch in geringem Umfange, praktisch thätig. Inzwischen hatte er auch, nächst den wesentlich praktischen »Chirurgische Erfahrungen und Untersuchh.« (Berlin 1859), eine Reihe ihrem Inhalte nach zusammengehöriger und einen sehr entschiedenen Fortschritt der Wissenschaft darstellender pathol.-anat. und histol. Arbeiten verfasst. Diese Arbeiten erschienen zum Teil erst, nachdem W. bereits (Ostern 1865), infolge des Rücktrittes von Chelius, die Professur der Chir. und die Direktion der chir. Klinik in Heidelberg übernommen hatte, wie denn überhaupt in die letzten Jahre in Bonn und das erste Jahr in Heidelberg seine kolossalste litter. Arbeitsleistung fiel; denn ausser diesen Arbeiten und einigen anderen, brachten die Jahre 1865 und 66 die von W. verfassten, ganz vorzüglichen, an Gediegenheit und Vollständigkeit des Inhalts, an Beherrschung der gross angelegten Formen vortrefflichen grossen Abschnitte in Pitha-Billroth`s Handb. der allgem. und spez. Chir., nämlich: »Die Gewebserkrankungen im Allgem. und ihre Rückwirkung auf den Gesammtorganismus« (I.) - »Krankhh. der Haut, des Zellgewebes, des Lymphgefässsystemes, der Venen, der Arterien und der Nerven« (II, Abt. 2) und »Die chirurg. Krankhh. des Gesichtes« (III, Abt. 1, Heft 2). Seine letzte Arbeit: »Praktische Miscellen« (D. Klinik, 1867) enthielt 7 verschiedene prakt.-chir. Mitteilungen über Gipsverbände, plastische Operatt., Totalexstirpat. der Parotis u.s.w. Daneben finden sich auch bedeutende Veröffentlichungen W.`s auf dem Gebiete der Biographie und Geschichte. Nachdem W. in Heidelberg bald in eine äusserlich glänzende Stellung gekommen und die Abtrennung der bis dahin mit der chirurg. Klinik verbundenen Augenklinik eingeleitet hatte, wurde er 1867 von einer Angina, mit anfangs krupösem, später diphtherischem Charakter befallen, der er 11. Juni 1867 erlag.“ Vgl.

      Erlangen. Ferdinand Enke. 1869. 8°. Mit zahlreichen Holzschnitt-Illustrationen und 17 Tafeln in Stahlstich und Lithographie . HLdr. mit goldgeprägtem Rückentitel. [Hrsg. Pitha/Billroth: Handbuch der allgemeinen und speciellen Chirurgie, Bd. I, 2 Abtl.]. \" Theodor (Christian Albert) Billroth, der geniale Chirurg, als Neffe des Physikus zu Stettin, Wilhelm Frierich B. (der sich wesentliche Verdienste während der Cholerazeit erwarb), auf Rügen 26. April 1829 geboren, besuchte 1848 bis 1852 die Universitäten zu Greifswald, Göttingen (hier besonders von dem alten Baum für die Chirurgie angeregt) und Berlin und wurde auf letzterer 1852 Dr. med. mit der Dissertation »De natura et causa pulmonum affectionis quae nervo utroque vago dissecto exoritur« Nach einer wissenschaftlichen Reise, die sich nach Wien und Paris erstreckte, war er 1853 bis 1860 Assistent in B. v. Langenbeck`s Klinik zu Berlin, habilitierte sich bei der dortigen Universität 1856 als Privatdozent, wurde 1860 als Professor ord. und Direktor der chirurgischen Klinik nach Zürich berufen und blieb in dieser Stellung bis 1867, seit welcher Zeit er in gleicher Eigenschaft an der Wiener Universität wirkte. Mehrfache, 1862 und 1864 an ihn ergangene Berufungen nach Rostock und Heidelberg, sowie diejenige als Nachfolger v. Langenbeck`s nach Berlin (1882) lehnte er ab. 1870 nahm er freiwillig Anteil an dem deutsch-französischen Kriege und war namentlich in den Lazaretten von Weissenburg und Mannheim thätig. Auf B.`s energisches Betreiben wurden das »Rudolfinerhaus«, eine Lehranstalt für weltliche Krankenpflegerinnen in Wien, sowie das Haus der K. K. Gesellschaft der Ärzte ins Leben gerufen; dagegen gelang es ihm trotz vielfacher dahingehender Bemühungen nicht, den Bau einer neuen chirurgischen Klinik durchzusetzen. Bis zum Frühjahr 1887 völlig gesund und leistungsfähig, von ausserordentlicher körperlicher und geistiger Rührigkeit und bewundernswerter Vielseitigkeit erkrankte er jetzt zum ersten Male an einer schweren Lungen-Entzündung mit so bedeutender Herzschwäche, dass damals schon sein Ableben befürchtet wurde. Doch genas er und konnte noch 1889 seinen 60. Geburtstag, sowie 1892 sein 25jähriges Wiener Professorenjubiläum unter zahlreichen, von allen Seiten dargebrachten Ovationen begehen. Indessen nahm die seit der Erkrankung zurückgebliebene Herzschwäche stetig zu, sodass B. vielfach seine Berufsthätigkeit unterbrechen musste. Am 6. Februar 1894 trat der Tod dieses weltberühmten Chirurgen in Abbazia ein, der von der ganzen Welt als ein schwerer Verlust tief betrauert wurde. Am 9. Februar wurde B. in Wien »unter fürstlichen Ehren« bestattet. Am 16. Februar veranstaltete die K. K. Gesellschaft der Ärzte in Wien eine Trauerfeier zu seinen Ehren, wobei Albert die Gedenkrede hielt; am 7. November 1897 wurde im Arkadenhofe der Wiener Universität sein Denkmal enthüllt. B. wird mit Recht als ein Stern erster Grösse, als ein Chirurg von universeller Bedeutung gefeiert. Was ihm seine wissenschaftliche resp. geschichtliche Bedeutung giebt, ist in erster Linie die Betonung von der Notwendigkeit der streng anatomisch-mikroskopischen Richtung und die Pflege der pathologisch-anatomischen Forschung, die er auch als die einzig rationelle Basis für den Fortschritt und das Gedeihen der praktischen Chirurgie ansah. Unter seinen Schriften finden wir namentlich aus seiner Erstlingszeit eine grosse Reihe darauf bezüglicher Veröffentlichungen, unter denen als die bedeutendsten die Untersuchungen über Wundkrankheiten gelten müssen, die ihren dauernden Wert wegen der darin betonten und bethätigten Prinzipien behalten werden, trotzdem sie in ihren Ergebnissen z.T. als überholt gelten müssen. Seinen Hauptruhm verdankt B. dem Ausbau der Eingeweidechirurgie, die er dank den Fortschritten der Anti- und Asepsis um die erste vollständige Kehlkopfexstirpation (1874) und die erstmalige glückliche Pylorusresektion (1881) (bei einer 43 jährigen an Pyloruscarcinom leidenden Kranken) bereichert hat. Über die erstgenannte Operation hat sein damaliger Assistent Gussenbauer in v. Langenbeck`s A. XVII. 1874, über die letztgenannte B. selbst in der Wiener klin. Wochenschr. 1891 und Wölfler an verschiedenen Stellen berichtet. Grosse Popularität erlangte er durch seine oft aufgelegten und von unzähligen Schülergenerationen benutzten, ausserordentlich anregenden und geradezu klassisch geschriebenen, weltbekannten, in fast alle neueren Sprachen übersetzten Vorlesungen über allgem. chir. Pathol. und Therapie, die auch heute noch in der erweiterten Gestalt, die ihnen B.`s Schüler v. Winiwarter gegeben hat, ein über alle Massen wertvolles Buch sind und bleiben werden. Was B. als Mensch bedeutete, davon legen Zeugnis ab seine von Georg Fischer, Hannover, jetzt schon in 4. Aufl. herausgegebenen, geradezu bezaubernden Briefe; sie verraten die universelle Bildung, die edlen Herzens- und Charaktereigenschaften, die grenzenlose Begeisterung für die Kunst, die dichterischen und musikalischen Anlagen, mit einem Wort die Universalität und Genialität B.`s, der mit seiner Persönlichkeit alle gefangen nahm, welche das Glück hatten, mit ihm in nähere persönliche Beziehungen zu treten. Seine Verdienste um die Wiener Hochschule, um die Hebung des medizinisch-chirurgischen Unterrichts, um die Erweiterung der ärztlichen Institutionen daselbst, um die Ausbildung zahlreicher Schüler zu klinischen Lehrern und Chirurgen von Weltruf, um die Kriegschirurgie, um die Krankenpflege und viele andere Zweige der neuzeitlichen Medizin können an dieser Stelle leider nicht weiter gewürdigt werden. Anstatt dessen genüge der Hinweis auf den Nekrolog von J. v. Mikulicz in B. k. W. 1894 No. 8 und die übrigen in der gesamten Weltliteratur erschienenen Gedenkschriften auf B., deren Verzeichnis der hauptsächlichsten sich bei Gurlt in Virchow`s A., CXXXIX p. 555 findet. B.`s Schriften sind ausführlich im älteren Lexikon (I p. 460 bis 461) verzeichnet, auf das wir hiermit verweisen müssen.\" Vgl.

This was the first part and a second part followed in April 1869, known now in England as Good Wives. The first Engish edition of Little Women (first part) was announced for the Christmas market in November and December 1868. It was the practice of English publishers of children's books to date them for the following year so they would continue to sell throughout the year after Christmas. Sampson Low's English Part II, issued with the same title as Part I (as in America), appeared in May 1869 and was dated 1869 and described as "Part Second". In 1870 Sampson Low reissued the 2 parts in 1 volume. The British Library copy of our book was received in 1868 and dated 1869 (NSTC).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("Le Verrier"). O. O., 21. V. 1869 [?].

      1869. ½ S. auf Doppelblatt. Gr.-8vo. An den Physiker Jules Antoine Lissajous (1822-1880). - Le Verrier war 1845 die Berechnung der Planetenbahn des Neptun gelungen, die er durch Beobachtungen von Störungen im Umlauf des Uranus ermittelt hatte. Auf diesen Berechnungen aufbauend, beobachtete im Jahr darauf Johann Gottfried Galle erstmals den Planeten am Okular seines Teleskops auf der Berliner Sternwarte. "Später versuchte Le Verrier mit der gleichen Methode, Bahnstörungen des Merkur (Periheldrehung) zu erklären, postulierte die Existenz eines Planeten innerhalb der Merkurbahn und nannte diesen Vulkan. Astronomen in aller Welt versuchten, diesen Planeten zu finden, jedoch ohne Erfolg. 1915 bewies jedoch Albert Einstein mit der Allgemeinen Relativitätstheorie, daß sich die Bahnstörungen allein durch das Schwerkraftfeld der Sonne erklären lassen" (Wikipedia). Neben seinen Forschungen zur Himmelsmechanik ging Le Verrier auch "als Erfinder der Wetterkarte in die Geschichte ein. Er baute auf telegraphisch mitgeteilten Daten eine Wettervorhersage auf, erstmals für den 19. Februar 1855, 10 Uhr, für Frankreich, die er der Pariser Akademie der Wissenschaften vortrug. In der Folge entstand der meteorologische Dienst in Frankreich" (ebd.). Sein Name ist einer der 72 auf dem Eiffelturm verewigten. - Auf Briefpapier mit gedr. Briefkopf des "Observatoire Imperial". - Mit kleineren Randläsuren und einem kleinen Fleck am unteren Blattrand. - Die Verso-Seite von Bl. 2 mit kl. Registraturetikett, hs. Numerierung "120" und mit dem verschlungenen Monogrammstempel "LS". - Selten.
