        Relatorio dos trabalhos da Academia Imperial de Medicina do Rio de Janeiro desde 30 de Junho de 1836 até 30 de Junho de 1837, ...Rio de Janeiro, F.P. Brito, 1837. 8vo in 4s. Contemporary paper wrappers.

      Blake, Diccionario Bibliographico Brazileiro, Rio de Janeiro, 1883, vol. 5, p. 478; not in Palau; WorldCat. Extremely rare report on the activities of the Imperial Academy of Medicine in Rio de Janeiro for the academic year 1836/37, written by Luís Vicente de Simoni (1792-1881), also known for his literary writings. Originally a medical doctor in Italy, Simoni came to Rio de Janeiro in 1817. He was a founding member and secretary of the Sociedade de Medicina do Rio de Janeiro, established in 1829, and wrote its first two reports, also extremely rare, published in 1831 and 1832. In 1835 the Sociedade became the Academia Imperial de Medicina. The present report is the first we have found after those of 1831 and 1832. A brief introduction is followed by two sections giving information about the academy during the year and the 7-page "Necrologias" giving detailed obituaries of two deceased members, Dr. José Joaquim de Carvalho (1775-1837) and Dr. José Lino Coutinho (1786-1836). In very good condition. The wrappers are slightly curled and show minor foxing, but are still very good. An extremely rare primary source on doctors and the medical academy in early 19th-century Rio de Janeiro.

Thompson, formerly Captain Thomas, began his career preparing maps and atlases of Illinois and Iowa counties. At various times of his life he was in partnership with several different men, two of them, Louis Everts and Alfred Andreas, were old acquaintances from his army days. In 1870 Thompson and Everts began publishing atlases, releasing in that year what they called “combination atlas maps.” In the 1870 atlases, lithographic illustrations were placed at the rear of the volumes. After 1870 the illustrations were interleaved with township maps throughout the atlases. The atlases were sold by subscription by traveling salesmen. Thompson and Everts dissolved their partnership in the early 1870s and in 1875 Thompson migrated to California. There he published atlases of Northern California. In partnership with Albert West, he issued atlases of Santa Clara County (1875), Alameda County (1878) and Solano County (1878). All are illustrated with lithographic views and sketches similar to those in the atlases of mid-western counties with a splendid array of lithographed plates showing the farms, houses, and other features of the settlements of Alameda County.

        Kannen (XXXV)

      Ernst Wasmuth, Berlin 1883 - Colour-printed lithograph by Ernst Wasmuth. Very good condition apart from some light soiling. From "Griechische Keramik", Genick's superb work on Greek ceramics. This beautiful plate depicts several jugs of various sizes and shapes. The revival of interest in Greek ceramics was led by the travellers and cognoscenti who visited Greece and southern Italy in the mid to late-18th century. The Greek vase as an art form was first brought to the attention of an appreciative wider audience with the publication of a number of well-illustrated works on the collections of these dilettantes. The most notable of this group was Sir William Hamilton (1730-1803), whose collection catalogue was published over a number of years starting in 1769. However, it was not until a century later that art historians felt they understood the full scope and history of ancient Greek ceramics in general and the superb work produced using the red-figure technique in particular. Genick was one of the leading authorities of his day on the red-figure vases: an architect by training, he had a passionate love for and deep understanding of this great Athenian pottery. His study, brought to realization by Wasmuth's superb chromolithographs, illustrates for the first time these masterpieces of the potter's life-size art.

        General William T. Sherman ALS to Colonel Elwell Stephen Otis (Fort Leavenworth Interest)

      General William Tecumseh Sherman, 1883. 1st Edition. Other Other. Very Good. (Autographed Documents & Letters) Autograph letter signed [ALS] from General William Tecumseh Sherman to Colonel Elwell Stephen Otis in regards to command school at Fort Leavenworth. Amazing content. Measures 8 x 10 inches. Writing on front and back of half of the sheet. Minor toning and edge wear. Some residue remnant from previous mounting. Very Good condition. <br><br> In 1866, Congress created the rank of General of the Army for Grant and then promoted Sherman to lieutenant general. When Grant became president in 1869, Sherman was appointed Commanding General of the United States Army. After the death of John A. Rawlins, Sherman also served for one month as interim Secretary of War. His tenure as commanding general was marred by political difficulties, and from 1874 to 1876, he moved his headquarters to St. Louis, Missouri in an attempt to escape from them. One of Sherman&#39;s significant contributions as head of the Army was the establishment of the School of Application for Cavalry and Infantry at Fort Leavenworth in 1881, which evolved into the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College. Sherman stepped down as commanding general in November, 1883, and retired from the army on February 8, 1884. <br><br> Transcription: <br>June 22, 1883 <br>My dear Colonel: <br>With a view to carry out the desire of the authorities at Washington to fully support you in the administration of the school of application at Fort Leavenworth in the years of its inception, the General of the Army has ordered the relief of 1st Lieutenant J. H. Gifford, Light Battery, F, 2nd Artillery, upon your recommendation. <br>This action is not, however, to be taken as a precedent. Lieutenants of artillery are sent to light batteries for instruction in this specialty of their arm of service, and other interests that may interfere therewith, or disarrange the roster therefore, cannot hereafter be considered. <br>Yours very truly, <br>Sherman <br><br> To Colonel E. S. Otis, <br>U.S. Infantry & Cavalry School, <br>Fort Leavenworth, Kansas

        Blue-Headed Racket-Tailed Parrot] Prioniturus Discosurus

      [London: by the Author, 1883. Hand-coloured lithograph, finished with gum arabic, after Gould and H.C.Richter, printed by Walter & Cohn. A fine image of two parrots from John Gould&#39;s magnificent folio work "The Birds of Asia." The intended geographical range of "The Birds of Asia" was enormous, and very much in keeping with the seemingly limitless self-belief of the 19th-century&#39;s best known ornithologist. In his all-encompassing work John Gould includes species from all corners of the eastern world, as Richard Bowdler Sharpe noted the work covers "Species from Palestine to the eastward, and from the Moluccas to the west." Gould chose to record the bird life from an area which, with the exception of the tropical areas of the American continent, includes the widest, and most colourful variety of bird life to be found anywhere in the world. Cf. Anker 178; cf. Fine Bird Books (1990), p.102; cf. Nissen IVB 368; cf. Sauer 17; cf. Wood p. 365; cf. Zimmer p.258.

        GODFREY MORGAN

      1883 - A Californian Mystery. Translated by W. J. Gordon. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, n.d. [1883]. Original aqua-grey cloth pictorially decorated in black. First American hardbound edition of this tale originally published the year before as L'ECOLE DES ROBINSONS. The New York Times panned this effort [as cited in T&M]:~M. Jules Verne has never written books strongly marked with common sense; they have on the contrary, offered unusual examples of the violation of all sensible ideas, and the successful violation. But when it comes to Godfrey Morgan's trip around the world, the submergeable steamer, the plot to give him a taste of that Robinson Crusoe life of which he had dreamed, the strain is too great. We are eager to be fooled, but the fooling must have some semblance of art; it must not be bald imbecility. Jules Verne has no right to inveigle the public into buying such a book on the strength of his former novels; it is an abuse of the good-nature of the public.~Scribner would not issue GODFREY MORGAN again.~George Munro managed, as usual, to produce the first edition in English for his self-wrappered "Seaside Library" in January 1883; Sampson Low's British edition, fully illustrated, came out in March of that year, followed by this Scribner edition (from the British sheets) in October. Whereas the British edition shows on its front cover Godfrey firing on lions and tigers from his perch inside a tree, the Scribner edition shows Tartlet stumbling as he runs from a hungry crocodile.~This copy is in aqua-grey cloth; we have also seen dark brown and light orange-brown (no priority). It is a very good-plus copy, with very light wear at the spine ends and very minor darkening of the cloth. Taves & Michaluk V024; Myers 29. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Excalfatoria Minima, Gould (Minute Quail)

      London 1883 - This splendid hand-colored, folio-size lithograph, Excalfatoria Minima, Gould, from John Gould&#146;s (1804-1881) monumental book "Birds of Asia" (1850-1883) is in mint condition. Measuring 15" x 21.75", this lithograph displays the author&#146;s scientific skill and attention to detail. Commonly called Minute Quail, small birds are expertly hand-colored, the males with blue bodies, brown wings and black and white necks and collars and the female in shades of tan and brown. Precise lines define and detail their feathers and create the intricate and colorful patterns of feathers. John Gould was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country&#146;s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, &#147;A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.&#148; For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of Gould's greatest achievements, the &#147;Birds of Asia&#148; was in production longer than any of his other work, taking thirty-four years for the appearance of its thirty-five parts. The ornithologist was fascinated by the diversity of the exotic, colorful species of Asia, and he conveyed his enchantment to viewers, creating one of his most monumental and magnificent sets. For the preparation of &#147;Birds of Asia&#148;, Gould&#146;s team of artists was joined by the German-born Josef Wolf, who, like Richter and Hart, would also become a long-term collaborator. The subjects of the plates are among the most varied of Gould's folios: trogons, kingfishers, sunbirds, woodpeckers, partridges, parrots, parakeets, pheasants, and many other genera are beautifully drawn, printed and colored. Gould placed many of the overwhelmingly vibrant, showy and elegant birds in settings appropriately lush and detailed. Perhaps more than in any of his other productions, he was careful to create an environment that was extensively delineated and highly accurate. In many of Gould's other books, the background was subtle or nonexistent, but he was clearly fascinated by the foliage and wildlife of Asia. The intended geographical range of the work was enormous and very much in keeping with the seemingly limitless ambition of the 19th century's most enterprising and prolific ornithologist. &#147;Birds of Asia&#148; was an overwhelming success, despite the great length of time over which it was produced. It was also a stunning feat in that, throughout the four decades of its production, the quality remained outstandingly high. The many noted subscribers included Queen Victoria, the Emperor of Austria, the kings of Hanover, Belgium, and Portugal, museums, universities, and institutions in cities worldwide.
