        Les institutions sanitaires pendant le conflit Austro-Prussien-Italien

      Paris: G. Masson, 1873. [16], 188pp. Paris: G. Masson, 1873. 227 x 146 mm. Original printed wrappers (brittle), chipped with loss. Fore-edges a little dust-soiled and frayed. Fifth edition, originally published in 1867. Preserved in a protective case. THE ANCESTOR OF THE AMERICAN RED CROSS. Scarce: ours is apparently the only copy currently on the market. Evans, an American dentist, settled in France in the late 1840s where he enjoyed an extraordinary success, numbering Napoleon III and members of other important European royal families among his patients, and amassing a large personal fortune. Through his connections with the politically powerful Evans became interested in diplomacy and international philanthropy: during the Crimean, Austro-Prussian-Italian and Franco-Prussian wars he financed the establishment of ambulance corps and other relief facilities for the wounded, and during the American Civil War he founded the U.S. Sanitary Commission at Philadelphia, the ancestor of the American Red Cross. The present work documents these services; it also includes an essay on ambulance wagons and a catalogue of Evans' collection of materials used by the U.S. Sanitary Commission. Dr. Evans devoted enormous energies to enriching the great European movement for civilian assistance to wounded soldiers with the practical experience of American volunteers on the battlefields of the Civil War. Evans, as Henry Dunant had witnessed the sufferings of the innumerable wounded of the battle of Solferino, and had naturally joined with the European elite (many of them his clients) in promoting the International Societies for Assistance to Wounded Soldiers, launched by Dunant and recognized by the Geneva Convention of 1864. In a book he published in French in Paris in 1866, Evans described the activities of the Sanitary Commission, which had come to the aid of the wounded of the Civil War (1861-1865). Evans published other books on the theme of the care of wounded soldiers, while more concretely drawing the attention of Europeans to the fruits of the American experience through the presentation of his personal collection of American first aid materiel in a pavilion at Paris' World Fair of 1867. Three years later, Evans put his collection to work during the Siege of Paris, outfitting a complete tent hospital, the American Ambulance at this time, the term ambulance referred to an "ambulatory" or field hospital set up in tents, barracks or other buildings taken over for this use pitched on a vacant lot a few hundred yards downhill from the Arch of Triumph. The American Ambulance was staffed by volunteers, its doctors, experienced veterans of the Civil War, and its non-medical personnel composed of members of the Colony. It was in this ambulance that many French first became aware of the efficiency of American "volunteer" action.

Parker; illustrated with sixteen photographic views. vii, 166 pp. Illustrated with 16 photographic plates. 8vo., bound in publisher's cloth. Pittsburgh: Printed by Bakewell & Marthens, 1873. |~||~||~||~| First Edition of this interesting nineteenth-century account of one of the oldest and largest cemeteries in the United States (located very near Pittsburgh, in Lawrenceville, PA.), featuring 300 acres of landscaped grounds and 15 miles of paved roadways. Allegheny Cemetery is said to be the second largest of all U.S. cemeteries (only Arlington Cemetery is supposed to be larger); it is demonstrably the fourth incorporated cemetery in the United States. The present volume offers 16 photographic images of landscaped views and monuments on the grounds, as well as a comprehensive history of the cemetery and its corporation. On April 24, 1844, Allegheny Cemetery was chartered as a tax-free, non-profit organization. For $50,000 George A. Bayard sold 100 acres of land in Lawrenceville, including a mansion and other improvements, to be used for the cemetery. This land became Pittsburgh's first public park, modeled after the fashionable romantic landscapes of English parks. The gateway of the cemetery's Butler Street entrance is an outstanding example of John Chislett's reposeful Tudor style. Fine copy.

        14 Briefe an seinen Malerfreund Ernst Henseler (1852-1940) in Berlin aus den Jahren 1873 bis 1879 aus Hamburg, Düsseldorf und Eisenach. Versehen mit zahlreichen Illustrationen.

      . Feder in Grau oder Braun, auf Bütten oder Velin, sämtlich bezeichnet signiert und datiert. Ein 3seitiger mit besonders reizvollen Illustrationen geschmückter Brief ist mit "St. Gehrts" unterschrieben und datiert "Bergedorf. d. 10ten Sptbr. 1873." Bei dem Schreiber handelt es sich hier vermutlich um den jüngeren Bruder von Carl Gehrts, Johannes Gehrts (1855-1921), der ebenfalls Maler war und erst 1873 von Hamburg nach Weimar wechselte. Bergedorf liegt in der Nähe von Hamburg.. Nach einem Besuch der Kunstgewerbeschule in Hamburg ging Gehrts 1871 nach Weimar und studierte an der Kunstschule bei K. Gussow (1843-1907) und A. Baur (1835-1906). Diesem folgte er 1876 nach Düsseldorf, 1889 ist eine Studienreise nach Italien und Griechenland belegt. Er war vielseitig begabt und in seiner dekorativen Manier den Zeitstil treffend, war er ein begehrter Künstler, der mit Aufträgen überhäuft wurde. Gehrts und Henseler hatten sich in Weimar an der 1871 gegründeten Kunstschule kennengelernt.

        Reports on the production of tea. (Illustrated with copies of drawings by a native artist.) [at the head of the page:] Japan. No. 1 (1873).London, Harrison and sons, 1873. Folio in 4s (32.5 x 21 cm). With 9 large folding chromolithographed plates (33 x 49.5 cm) showing the stages in growing, processing and transporting tea. Original publisher's blue paper wrappers, printed letterpress.

      Wenckenstern, p. 177; Worldcat (6 copies, at least 1 with only 8 plates); not in Cordier, Bibl. Japonica; Nipponalia. Rare first (and only?) edition of a beautifully colour-illustrated report to the British House of Commons on the production of tea in Japan, submitted by R.G. Watson in Edo (Tokyo) and including the texts of letters from various correspondents he contacted while drawing up the report. The text also includes detailed explanations of the scenes in the first 8 chromolithographs, including the months in which the activities took place. They show planting the seeds, manuring the plants, picking the leaves, steaming them, drying them, sorting them, separating leaves from stems, packing them and (in the 9th plate) transporting them. The chromolithographs are subtly executed with several stones for each plate, with both solid and chalk-texture areas of colour and sometimes colours overlapping to give additional shades. Although the back wrapper is in fact a front wrapper (with the title), at least the present copy appears to have been issued that way. Very slightly browned, with some tears in the gutter margin of 1 text leaf just touching the text, and with small parts of the black in one plate smudged during printing. Otherwise internally in good condition (the plates very good) with only some very small marginal chips and tears in the text leaves. The spine of the wrapper is gone and the sewing has come loose, leaving some plates or groups of leaves detached or nearly detached. Beautiful large chromolithographs of tea production in Japan.

        General Karte von Central Europa, bzw. der österr. ung. Monarchie, Maßstab 1:300.000 in 192 Blatt. Herausgegeben vom k. und k. militärischen geografischen Institute in Wien

      1873 - 1876.. Seltene vollständige Ausgabe dieser Erstveröffentlichung. Die Karten, mit dem Mittelpunkt östlich von Wien, reichen im Westen bis Poitiers, im Norden bis Kopenhagen, im Osten bis Odessa und im Süden bis Rom, einschliesslich in die Regionen Griechenlands und Türkei. Durch die vergrößerte Darstellung gegenüber der Schedaschen Karte galt die Arbeit am Ende in den Punkten Übersicht und Klarheit dieser als etwas unterlegen. Das Werk wurde 1876 vollendet und, obwohl unermüdlich verbessert, danach allmählich aus dem Verkehr gezogen. Die spätere kleine Ergänzung bzw. Erweiterung ab 1877 umfasste daher nur wenige Blätter, z.B. die Balkanhalbinsel. Am Ende zählte das Werk im Umfang 207 Blatt. - Folgende Karten in den Bänden: I. Band A.1. Manchester. - B.2.

        Autograph letter signed to Latimer Clark

      1873. Very Good. Japan's Telegraphic SystemAyrton, William Edward (1847-1908). A.L.s. to Latimer Clark. Tokyo, March 2, n.y. [between 1873 and 1878]. 7pp. 155 x 101 mm. Provenance: Latimer Clark.Ayrton, a pupil of Sir William Thomson (later Lord Kelvin), was a noted physicist, electrical engineer, inventor, and technical educator; his wife was the physicist Hertha Ayrton, best known for her investigations of the electric arc and of sand ripples. For five years Ayrton served as professor of physics and telegraphy at the Imperial Engineering College in Tokyo, Japan (at one time the world's largest technical university), where he established the first laboratory in Japan for teaching applied electricity. During his time in Japan Ayrton performed an enormous amount of experimental research, some of which is mentioned in detail in his letter to Clark. The letter concludes by referring to the disturbances to Japan's telegraphic system caused by "the revolution which exists in the South," i.e., one of the many Samurai revolts occasioned by the rise of the centralized Meiji government in 1868. Upon his return to England, Ayrton served for some time as Clark's scientific advisor. Origins of Cyberspace 113.

      Small octavo. One page. A letter dated 11 February 1873 from Bladon Springs, Alabama to "Mrs. Walker," a white woman, warning her that her property is about to be sold. In full: "Feb. 11, 1873 / Bladen Springs / Mrs. Walker. I understand that your lot, leading from Bladon to Cullum Spring, on the road known as the Iron Spring lot, is to be sold the first Monday in March at the court house down in Butler. I thought you did not know it, and I thought it my duty to write to you about it. We are all well and geting [sic] along very well. Your colored friend, Hannah Walker." It is conceivable, considering their identical surnames, that Hannah may have been freed from Mrs. Walker or her family, but still felt some friendship or other obligation to her. .

      "The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below:Sundry Civil Bill, 1873-1874, bound copy of bill H.R. 3921, with amendments, from the Committee on Appropriations, 42d Congress, 3d Session, reported [by] Mr. James A. Garfield, February 11, 1873. Half leather with four raised bands on spine and titles stamped in gilt, marbled boards, end papers and page block. No title page or publisher stated. Approximately 235 pps, 4to. Affixed to the first page of the bill on plain paper in unknown hand, ?Hon. J. A. Garfield / Sundry Civil Bill / 1873-74."" Shelf wear to leather, interior is lightly soiled and toned, else near fine condition. Garfield was a talented parliamentarian, a hard worker, and a skilled negotiator in Congress. He became Chairman of the Appropriations Committee in 1871, a position he would hold for the next four years. It is generally agreed that his work on the committee made a real contribution to improving the management of the U.S. government. When James G. Blaine advanced to the Senate in 1876, Garfield succeeded him as leader of the House Republicans. Garfield was very successful in the House, but his time there was not entirely without controversy. Garfield was one of more than thirty representatives alleged to have been sold stock by Credit Mobilier of America, a company associated with the Union Pacific Railroad, at less than its value to influence legislation affecting the railroad. Garfield claimed to have been given a loan from the company in the amount of $300 in June 1868, not stock, which he paid back in the winter of 1869. No receipt, certificate or dividend was ever uncovered, and thus Garfield was not politically ruined long term."
