Tyler was a member of the Battalion which was organized in Council Bluffs and marched to San Diego. "The battalion, about five hundred strong, was organized at Council Bluffs in July, 1846, Col. Allen in command. After a tedious march, attended by many hardships, it reached San Diego in January, 1847, where it was mustered out" (Cowan). "Though dated 1881, internal statements indicate its actual publication in 1882" (Howes). Pages 118-125 contain a "List of Names in the Mornon [sic] Battalion," adding a personal element to the story. Joseph Gregg Layne (1885-1952) was a leading authority and bibliographer of Californiana, who also worked with the "Quarterly for the Historical Society of Southern California" as President, member of the Board of Directors, and Editor.

        TWO ON A TOWER

      1882 - New York: John W. Lovell Company, n.d. [1882]. Original brown cloth decorated in black. Early (first?) American edition. This Hardy novel first appeared serially in Atlantic Monthly, where it ran from May through December 1882, paving the way for it to be pirated once complete. The three-volume English edition came out at the end of October, as well. Early in December, three American editions came out -- the authorized one, in Henry Holt's "Leisure Hour Series," plus two pirated ones, in John Lovell's "Lovell's Library" and in George Munro's "Seaside Library." Purdy notes,~The Holt and Munro editions are listed in Publishers' Weekly, 9 December. The Lovell's Library edition is not listed at all and may have been a bit earlier. It [the cheaper version bound in wrappers] is dated 14 November, but such dates are hardly trustworthy.~This is one of the copies bound in cloth, with "Lovell's Library" at the top of the spine. Condition is near-fine (just a bit of rubbing at the corners), with some faint foxing on the extremely cheap textual paper. See Purdy p. 47. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Autographed Postcard Signed (S.L. Clemens)

      A small card, approximately 3" x 5" with the author&#39;s engraved monogram in red. Paper clip shadow on the left side, as well as a modest paper remnant on the verso where the card was tipped into a scrapbook, just touching the last letter in his signature, else very good. To the author&#39;s publisher, using both sides of the card. In full: "Wednesday. My Dear Osgood -- All right -- shall expect you Friday [word scratched out]. Would have written you sooner, but one of the children has been lying very close to the grave ever since New Years&#39; night, & was not declared out of danger till yesterday evening. Truly Yours, S.L. Clemens." Undated but circa 1882. A little better content than most of Clemens&#39;s notes, as the theme of his children&#39;s mortality played such an important role in his life. .

        Handwritten Unpublished Poem with an original cabinet photograph

      Denver, CO, 1882. unbound. Exceptional unpublished signed poem, titled "My Thirty Second Birthday," 1 page, 8.5 x 4.75 inches, four stanzas. Written on the back of a restaurant check made out to Fields for $3.00 at the Hotel Brunswick in Denver, Colorado, on August 31, 1882. This humorous poem was created on the spot for his friend Corporal Raymond, who accompanied Field to the restaurant in celebration of his 32nd birthday -- and then picked up the check for $3.00, in small part, consisting of the 2nd and 4th verses: "The gallant Corporal Raymond said &#39;Who dares to send an order here?&#39; Yet by the living and the dead - And by the hairs of this proud head, if it be Field - there&#39;s difference there! So Corporal Raymond paid the bill - Three dollars! Blush O muse, to say - Three dollars for the juice of still - And meats he took to make his fill - So fritter man their gold away!" Accompanied by an original cabinet photograph taken on that memorable day by Charles Bohm, depicting Eugene Field, Corporal Raymond, and two unidentified people posed in a studio setting, possibly unique. The poem has three horizontal folds, several small smudges, and a light strip of uneven toning on the right edge. Very good condition. American writer best known for his children&#39;s poetry and humorous essays.

        A Soldier&#39;s Life and Work in South Africa. 1872&#150;1879

      London, Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, , 1882. A Memoir of the Late Colonel A.W. Durnford. Edited by his Brother, Lieut.-Colonel E[dward] Durnford, Part Author of the "History of the Zulu War and its Origin". Octavo. Original red decorative cloth, rebacked in red cloth with a tan morocco label. Mounted "Woodburytype" photograph portrait frontispiece and folding coloured map. Light browning, a couple of pages reinforced at the fore-edge, a few neat annotations to the text, map with one or two short splits at the folds, one old paper tape repair verso, but overall very good, the cloth a little rubbed and spotted. First Edition. Uncommon account of Durnford&#39;s service in South Africa, an apologia edited by his brother: "The court of inquiry into the loss of the camp duly attributed most of the blame for the defeat to Durnford&#39;s rash conduct. This was hardly surprising since Chelmsford&#39;s staff were determined to make Durnford the scapegoat for the disaster. His brother Lieutenant-Colonel Edward Durnford and Frances Colenso endeavoured through their writings and public lobbying to rehabilitate his reputation. They did not wholly succeed. Durnford&#39;s heroic death did much to blunt public criticism of him, but there can be little doubt that his actions contributed materially to the disaster at Isandlwana. As Sir Theophilus Shepstone wrote of him, Durnford was &#39;as plucky as a lion but as imprudent as a child&#39;" (ODNB).

        Conspectus Psittacorum. Systematische Uebersicht aller bekannten Papageienarten.

      Berlin: Selbstverglag des Verfassers, 1882. - 8vo., (9 ¼ x 5 7/8). Folding table. Contemporary half green morocco, marbled paper boards, original green printed paper wrappers bound in (worn with loss to head of the spine and corners), the spine in five compartments with four raised bands, decorated with gilt tooling in four, and with gilt lettering in one. Provenance: Presentation copy from the author to Dr. Émil August Göldi (1859-1917); with Göldi's bookplate to front pastedown and his ownership stamps to recto of front free endpaper and title page. PRESENTATION COPY FROM AUTHOR REICHENOW, GERMAN ORNITHOLOGIST, TO GÖLDI, SWISS-BRAZILIAN ZOOLOGIST AND EPIDEMIOLOGIST First edition. Anton Reichenow, a German ornithologist and herpetologist, was a particular expert on parrots, and this book is, as both the Latin and German titles suggest, a systematic survey of all parrot species known at the time of publication. He created a system of classifying birds, in which he designated six groups: "shortwings, swimmers, stiltbirds, skinbills, yoketoes, and treebirds." Although this terminology was not widely adopted by ornithologists, it is used in the standard decimal library cataloguing system. A number of bird species are named after Reichenow, and he is credited with describing one new genus and two new species of frogs, as well as two new species of lizards. He presented this copy of Conspectus Psittacorum to Swiss-Brazilian naturalist and zoologist Émil August Göldi, who described numerous new species of Brazilian birds and mammals, many of which bear his name. In addition to his zoology work, Göldi also made important contributions to the field of epidemiology and public health in Brazil. In particular he studied the transmission of yellow fever and advocated the importance of fighting the mosquito as the primary carrier of the disease, several years before Oswaldo Cruz's public health campaign. A very good copy illustrating the intellectual relationship of two important scientific figures in the late nineteenth century.

        1882 Time Table showing the First Transcontinental US railroad: "Union and Central Pacific Railroad Line. The Great American Over-Land Route", with large color map.

      Rand McNally,, Chicago: 1882 - Pocket time table with large color map showing the western portion of the first transcontinental railroad, from Council Bluffs and Kansas City and extending west to California. This particular time table is from an Australian collection; the route from Australia has been marked in orange pencil on the map, starting with the trip across the Atlantic, arrival in New York, trip up to Boston, then Quebec, Montreal, Toronto, Buffalo, Chicago, Omaha/Council Bluffs, and from there due west on the Pacific Union line to San Francisco.This first transcontinental line, known as the "Overland Route", was built between 1863 and 1869, when the Central Pacific and the Union Pacific connected at Council Bluffs, and linked up with the existing network to the east, thereby providing rail service for the first time from coast to coast. On May 10, 1869, the famous "Last Spike" was driven at Promontory, Utah, establishing a transportation network which supercharged the economy and migration to the American West.The time table boasts a schedule time between New York of only 7 days for first class trains! Through tickets to Europe are offered, and rates to California from New York "are at present about $138.30 first class; $105.00 second-class; $75.00 third class passage". When the map is folded, one side is devoted to time tables, and the other side to general information. Includes text on Montana and Colorado, luring settlers: "Among the promising Territories of the Union none is at present enjoying a more vigorous growth than Montana. . [this] line in now completed to Butte City, the mining centre of the Territory, and reduces the stage distance to principal points to from eight to twenty-four hours". On Colorado: "The Central and Union Pacific is the only line which can carry passengers from California, Nevada or the Coast, through the wonderfully prosperous and picturesque young state of Colorado. . Every mountain range and every gulch is being prospected." The time table with "Form B-6-82" at the bottom of the front panel. 4 1/2 x 8 1/4" folded, folding open 8 times to 16 1/4 x 43 1/2 wide", with attractive large color map showing the rail lines in black, with branch lines extending north into Montana and Oregon, and south in to Colorado and Utah.

        Chirurgie antiseptique et théorie des germes. Oeuvres réunies de J. Lister. Traduction du Dr Gustave Borginon.

      H. Manceaux, Bruxelles 1882 - In-8, xvi, 635 pp., figures dans le texte, 1 planche en couleur, demi-chagrin havane moderne, dos à nerfs, titre doré, couvertures conservées, exemplaire non coupé ; les 200 premiers feuillets sont discrètement brunis ; par ailleurs, très bon exemplaire, très frais. Très rare traduction de diverses publications et conférences de Joseph Lister sur l'antiseptie chirurgicale, placées par ordre chronologique (ce qui permet de suivre le cheminement de la pensée de l'auteur). Cet ouvrage est particulièrement important, d'autant plus que les ¿uvres complètes de Lister ne seront publiées en anglais qu'en 1909 et qu'il serait pratiquement impossible aujourd'hui de réunir les tirages à part de ces 18 textes. Il faut particulièrement signaler les deux premiers textes, ainsi que le quatrième : - Nouveau traitement des fractures ouvertes et des abcès ¿ Observations sur les causes de la suppuration (extrait de The Lancet, 1867) : monument capital dans l'histoire de la chirurgie [.] remarquable par l'exactitude des descriptions et la rigueur du raisonnement basé sur l'expérience (Lecène). Lister, s'inspirant des expériences de Pasteur et d'un rapport sur les effets remarquables de l'acide phénique sur les eaux d'égout, utilise des pansements à base d'acide phénique sur les plaies de fractures compliquées. - Le principe antiseptique dans la pratique chirurgicale (Lancet, 1867) : "Lister annonce dans cette communication capitale [.] qu'il a commencé à appliquer l'antisepsie phéniquée à la chirurgie opératoire." (Lecène). Lister pulvérise sur le champ opératoire des vapeurs d'une solution phéniquée forte. - Ligatures artérielles faites d'après la méthode antiseptique : Lister est le premier à employer et à préconiser du catgut antiseptique. Dans les mémoires suivants, Lister rapporte ses recherches visant à améliorer la méthode antiseptique et les résultats extraordinaires de ses travaux qui vont convaincre peu à peu la communauté scientifique internationale. Le traducteur était médecin à Bruxelles. La traduction a été revue par Lister. Cet ouvrage a également été publié à Paris, chez Delahaye & Lecrosnier, la même année (édition sans doute postérieure). cf. pour les publications originales : Printing and the mind of man, 316 ; One hundred books famous in medicine, 75 ; Garrison & Morton, 1619, 2964, 5616, 5634, 5635 ; Zimmerman & Veith, pp. 459-475 ; A. Fandre, pp. 69-72 ; Lecène (L'évolution de la chirurgie), pp. 249-256. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
