        Black-bordered Executive Mansion card signed by Robert Todd Lincoln just four months after President Garfield succumbed to an assassin?s bullets ? Secretary of War Lincoln was just 40 feet away, walking towards Garfield, when the President was shot

      Black-bordered Executive Mansion card signed ?Robert T. Lincoln / Jan 27. 1882.? as Secretary of War, 5? x 3.25?. In exceptionally fine condition. ?On July 2, 1881, President Garfield was scheduled to leave for a trip to New England. While some cabinet members and their wives were scheduled to go on the trip, [Garfield?s Secretary of War] Lincoln was unable to depart until the following day. He went to Washington, D.C.?s Baltimore and Potomac train station that morning to meet the President and let him know that the Lincolns would be along on July 3. He was about forty feet away and walking toward President Garfield and Secretary of State James G. Blaine when Charles Guiteau approached from behind and shot Garfield twice. ?By Lincoln?s own recollection, ?I think I reached him in fifteen seconds.? Secretary Lincoln immediately sent for Dr. D.W. Bliss, then ordered four companies of soldiers to immediately come to the train depot for security. When Garfield was moved back to the White House, Lincoln made sure that ?all intruders were out of the grounds and a strong military guard on duty there and another at the jail to prevent lynching and a reserve between.? As historian Jason Emerson notes, Lincoln?s decisive actions after the attack on Garfield were reminiscent of Secretary of War Edwin Stanton?s on the night Booth shot Abraham Lincoln. However, the memory of his father?s murder sixteen years before haunted him. ??My god,? he said to a New York Times reporter the day after the shooting. ?How many hours of sorrow I have passed in this town.? ... President James A. Garfield died on September 19, 1881, eighty days after being shot. Vice President Chester A. Arthur was sworn in as the 21st President of the United States and traveled to Elberon, New Jersey, where Garfield died, to escort his predecessor?s body back to the capital. After Garfield?s late September funeral and once Congress convened in December 1881, Arthur kept only one cabinet officer appointed by Garfield: Robert Todd Lincoln, who served as Secretary of War until the end of the Arthur presidency.? --- James A. Garfield National Historic Site, Mentor, Ohio. Robert Todd Lincoln was at the Petersen House where his father was taken after he was shot, consoling his mother on the night of April 14-15, 1865. On the evening of September 6,1901, Lincoln, then president of the Pullman Palace Car Company, was with his family on their way to Buffalo to attend the Pan-American Exposition. As their train pulled into the Buffalo station, a Pullman employee was waiting and immediately handed Lincoln a telegram that read: ?President McKinley was shot down by an anarchist in Buffalo this afternoon. He was hit twice in the abdomen. Condition serious.? He immediately went to the home of John Milburn, president of the Pan-Am Expo, where McKinley was taken, and spent a few minutes with the President who would die a week later.

        Old and new Canada, 1753-1844 : historic scenes and social pictures, or the Life of Joseph-François Perrault

      Montreal: Dawson Brothers, Publishers, 1882. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good+. 7 1/4" x 5", xv, 285pp, appendix to p.291, Original reddish brown cloth rebacked with gilt type on spine and elaborate gilt type for title and authors signature in gilt. Note from author bound inside book. Errata on p.xi. Very Good condition.The Life of "Joseph-François Perrault (June 2, 1753 - April 5, 1844) was a businessman and political figure in Lower Canada. Perrault was born in Quebec City in 1753, the son of fur trader Louis Perrault and grandson of François Perrault, and was brought to Trois-Rivières during the British attack on the town. In 1763, his father returned to Quebec City and left his children with his brother Jacques while he returned to France on business. Joseph-François studied at the Petit Séminaire de Québec. In 1772, he left the province to meet his father in New Orleans. When he arrived, his father was at St Louis, Missouri and they were finally reunited there in the spring of 1773.In 1779, the younger Perrault was captured by native warriors allied with the British and brought to Detroit. There, he met his uncle Jacques Baby, dit Dupéront. Unable to rejoin his father, Perrault began working for his uncle at Montreal. He later entered retail trade on his own, later leaving that business and becoming involved in various other activities, including teaching bookkeeping and translating legal publications. Perrault also became involved in theatre at Montreal with Pierre-Amable de Bonne. In 1795, he was named clerk of the peace and protonotary for the Court of King's Bench at Quebec. He was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada for Huntingdon County in 1796; he was reelected in 1800. In 1806, he helped establish the Courier de Québec and was also involved in the production of the Le Vrai Canadien at Quebec. Although he was originally a strong supporter of the English party, Perrault became a moderate Reformer later in life; he opposed the use of force to secure political change." Wikipedia.

        BLOOD-MONEY.

      San Francisco: F. J. Walker & Co., 1882. - First edition. 8vo. Original green cloth stamped in black, titled in gold gilt and with a pictorial design of bags of money in gold on the front cover, floral decorated endpapers, v [blank], 7-237 pp. The author's first novel, an indictment of the conduct of California railroad companies which were forcing settlers off their land, based on the Mussel Slough Tragedy. This tragedy was a dispute over land titles between settlers and the Southern Pacific Railroad that took place on May 11, 1880 on a farm located 5.6 miles northwest of Hanford, California, in the central San Joaquim Valley, leaving seven people dead. The exact history of the incident has been the source of some disagreement, largely because popular anti-railroad sentiment in the 1880s made the incident to be a clear example of corrupt and cold-blooded corporate greed. Morrow was a San Francisco based author, a mentor and contemporary of Ambrose Bierce, whose stories mostly appeared in Bay area journals, and his tales astounded and fascinated readers in old San Francisco. He is best known for his collection of weird and macabre stories titled THE APE THE IDIOT & OTHER PEOPLE. Very light professional restoration to the spine ends and corners, else a very good copy of a very scarce book. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Ueber Pylorusresection.

      - Slg. klin. Vortr., 220. - Leipzig, Verlag von Breitkopf & Härtel, 1882, 8°, 40 pp., und 2 lith. Tafeln mit 12 Abbildungen, OBrosch. Sehr gutes Exemplar dieser Kostbarkeit der magenchirurgischen Literatur. Eines der ganz großen und wichtigen Dokumente aus der Geschichte der Magenchirurgie, zugleich auch die erste historische Darstellung der frühesten Pylorus-Resektionen, verfaßt von einem der drei Pioniere dieses segensreichen Eingriffes - - Pylorusresektion vor Billroth - Meilenstein der Abdominalchirurgie. - Ludwig Rydygier (1850-1920) gehört zu den zu Unrecht vergessenen Pionieren der moderenen Abdominalchirurgie. Er resizierte bereits 2 Monate vor Billroth, am 16. November 1880, ein großes Pyloruskarzinom. Der Patient verstarb 12 Stunden nach der Operation. Die von Billroth im Januar 1881 operierte Patientin überlebte 4 Monate. Seinen zweiten und dritten Patienten verlor Billroth ebenfalls postoperativ. - Rydygier gelang dagegen am 21.11.1881 die erste Pylorusresektion bei benigner Stenose (Ulcus duodeni). Die Patientin überlebte den Eingriff 19 Jahre! Rydygier war es auch, der die Klemme zur Komprimierung des Magen- und Duodenalstumpfes einführte. In der vorliegenden Arbeit berichtet der Autor in aller Ausführlichkeit über die ca. 4 Stunden dauernde Operation. Eingehend werden auch die Vorteile des "Compressorium" geschildert. Rydygier schreibt "Nach dem Gesammteindruck, den auf uns der Fall gemacht hat, glauben wir zu dem Ausspruch berechtigt zu sein, dass diese Operation gewiss eine Zukunft hat. - 2/1/2 Jahre nach Péans Operation erschienen; dessen Tat nimmt in Rydygiers "Zusammenstellung der bis jetzt bekannten Pylorusresectionen" natürlich den ersten Platz ein, von den weiteren zwischem dem 9.April 1879 und dem 3. Januar 1879 ausgeführten Resektionen waren leider nur weniger als 20 Porzent vom Erfolg gekrönt. - Ludwig Rydygiers Arbeit, im Erstdruck, ist einer der interessantesten und wichtigsten Titel in der Bauchchirugie.

Ink name on front flyleaf, front free endpaper removed, front joint in need of repair, leather spine & corners dry and requiring restoration - we have left these repairs undone, but can arrange to complete the necessary work to your specifications. 1882 Half-Leather. x, 300 pp. 4to. Leather spine & corners over brown cloth, gilt titles & double rules, all edges marbled, marbled endpapers. A collection of 55 stunning chromolithographs (54 in text, plus lithographed title page depicting the Chipping Sparrow), compiled by an enthusiastic advocate of the advancement of ornithological science. Thomas Gentry was the author of 'Life-Histories of Birds of Eastern Pennsylvania' and 'The House Sparrow', and member of the Philadelphia Academy of Natural Sciences, the Nuttall Ornithological Club, the Davenport Academy of Natural Sciences, the Franklin Scientific Society of the University of Pennsylvania, etc. He explains in his introduction that this work closely followed two separate works similar in focus, one of which was a failure because it dealt only with the eggs, and another of which 'seemed of such high pecuniary value as to be beyond the public reach'. This, then, was the first volume available to the general reader to treat the subject.

This, then, was the first volume available to the general reader to treat the subject.

Barnum (1810?-1891) was the archetypal 19th-century American self-made man with an extensive list of professions, including travelling showman, politician, hoaxer, and best-selling author. In his sixties, he began a new and successful career as a circus owner, in which capacity he purchased Jumbo the Elephant (1861?-1885). Barnum's first autobiography, The Life of P.T. Barnum: Written by Himself, was first published in 1855.

        Flowering Cactus Blossom.

      Original Watercolor 1882-1890, Britain - A refined and rare original watercolor painted on clay-coated stock. Fine condition. Image size: 13 x 11 cm. Sheet size: 24 x 29.6 cm. With dedication leaf 'Edith Cast Faber from her Mother (a loving memento) painted by Mrs. J.A. Faber about 1882-1890'. Classified as florilegia: ornamental flowers painted for beauty rather than scientific or medicinal appeal, this lovely Flowering Cactus Blossom was evidently painted from nature by an accomplished hand. Although the art of flower painting was a favored, traditional pastime for genteel women of nineteenth century Britain, few works boast the refined sense of composition, color, light and shading as evidenced by the practiced, skillful execution of this still life. To date the works by Mrs. Faber are undocumented however this elegant composition clearly reflects her appreciation for and mature expression of the glories of the garden, the natural world and the still life tradition.

Holmes states that he is busy making arrangements for lectures at present and "had better not make any literary side-issues at this particular time." In a postscript he asks "Who looked over the proofs of Miss Preston's article? p. 454. 'Fons Baudusiae splendidior bibro'! I was positively scared when I saw this mangling of an everyday quotation. I am afraid somebody will get hold of it and make it a handle for abuse."
