        Original Pencil and Watercolor: The Judge George L.Jones Home, Nevada City

      - Eleven by 16 inches. Titled and signed by Mathis. Original mat and frame. Shows the home located at 236 Nevada Street, Nevada City, California. Judge George L. Jones served as Nevada County Superior Court Judge from 1908 to 1925, when he resigned to become president of the Nevada County Bank. He returned to the bench in 1938 and retired for good in 1947. His parents were the Nevada Co. pioneers Dr. and Mrs. W.C. Jones. Mathis (b. 1909--d. 1977) was a noted and popular California artist who gained fame for his depictions of the Mother Lode area. This original piece of art was commissioned by the Jones family as a retirement gift for Thomas Houston, Judge Jones's grandson (circa 1965). While hand colored lithographs of Mathis's work are quite common, original art is not. Most of the originals of Mathis's work are either owned by his daughter (an art dealer) or were donated to Washington State University, Mathis's alma mater.

        Behandlung der Okklusionsanomalien der Zähne. Angle's System.

      . Autorisierte deutsche Übersetzung v. Josef Grünberg, Orthodontist, Berlin, redigiert von Dr.Albin Oppenheim, Wien. - Berlin, Verlag von Herman Meusser, 1908, 8°, XVI, 630 pp., 666 Abb., orig. Leinenband.. Erste Deutsche Ausgabe, nach der siebenten, bedeutend vermehrte und vollkommen umgearbeiteten Auflage! - Edward Harley Angle (1855-1930), "founder of "Scientific Orthodontica." Provost Smith upon conferring of honorary degrees at the dedication of Thomas W.Evans Dental Institute, 1915, expressed the following tribute to our great teacher, in words that can hardly be improved upon, broad, in their meaning and true in their statement: "Lover of art and nature, intimate friend of trees and flowers, but preeminently founder of the science of orthodontia, to which the best thought of a life has been given in experimentes and test." - "The first to incorporate in his teachings and writings the views of Davenport and others, publicly emphasizing that extraction of the teeth in order to cortrect maloclusion was unnecessary and even criminal; the importance of restoring normal occlusion in order that the best results might be obtsained and the teeth permanently retained." - "Dr Angle read his first paper in December, 1886, "Irregularities of the Teeth", before the Minneapolis Dental Society, repeating this before the Minnesota State Dental Society in May, 1887, and the describing for the first time (in a paper read before the Ninth International Medical Congress, 1887) what is now recognized as the "Angle System". From the simple beginning there has developed that which we now recognize as the leading method of treating irregularities of the teeth. Seven editions of his "Malocclusion of the Teeth" have gone through the press. ... Each edition was more comprehensive than the preceeding one and contained all of the advances made by the author in the intervening years. The first five editions were pamphlets, the sixth however, was more of an elaborate work; in this he clearly sets forth at length his method of operating, the devices he designed and their method of construction, with the added advantage of numerous photographic reproductions of models showing various cases before and after treatment, thus greatly enhancing the value of the work. The seventh edition brought out in 1907, a work of 627 pages, was the last published in English." - "A brief summary of Dr. Angle's development of his ideas is as follows: - The introduction of metal tubes soldered to the band, providing a "simple, compact, and ready means of attachment between band and working appliance" and the Introduction of Nickel Silver (German), of Traction Screw, of Stationary Anchorage, of Silver Solder, of Occipital Anchorage, of Occlusal Anchorage, of Adjustable Clamp Band, of Angle Impression Trays, of Soft Brass Ligature Wire, of Wire Pinches, Under a New Method of Applying Force; of Band Forming Pliers, of Resection of Frenum Labii, of Head Gear, of Chin Retractor, of Classification of Malocclusion, of Friction Sleeve Nut, Establishing of the Angle School of Orthodontia, Organized the American Society of Orthodontia, of Metal Ligatures in Orthodontia, of Specialization of Orthodontia, of Normal Occlusion (The full complement of teeth, and that each tooth shall be made to occupy its normal position), of Upper First Molar as a Basis of Diagnosis, established the American Orthodontist, of Working Retainer, of Pin and Tube Applicance, of Ribbon Arch - are contributions to orthodontics by Edward H.Angle. -cf.Weinberger, p.675-719 - "Das wesentliche an Angles Geräten war deren Vereinfachung und Standardisierung. Während zuvor jede Apparatur eine mehr oder weniger komplizierte Neukonstruktion darstellte, konnte sich nunmehr aus vorfabriziertem (und patentierten) Grundmaterial jeder Praktiker, sozusagen im Baukastensystem, die dem Fall entsprechende Mechanik zusammenstellen." -cf.Hoffmann-Axthelm², p.281, 418f., 421f., 424f., 427f., 432

        El veneciano Sebastián Caboto, al servicio de España y especialmente de su proyectado viaje á las Molucas por el Estrecho de Magallanes y al reconocimiento de la costa del continente hasta la gobernación de Pedrarias Dávila

      Imprenta y Encuadernación Universitaria, Santiago, Chile 1908 - 2 volumes: ix+634 pages with frontispiece, photostat copies of original manuscripts, plates and bibliography; 613 pages with index. Folio (13" x 9 3/4") bound in three quarter leather with red and gilt lettering to spine. First edition. Sebastian Cabot was born to Giovanni Caboto (John Cabot), also an explorer variously credited with Genoese or Gaetan origins, and Mattea. In 1508-09 Sebastian Cabot followed in his father's footsteps by leading one of the first expeditions to find a North-West passage, and indeed claimed to have found one, but was forced to turn back by his crew. He may have found the entrance to Hudson's Bay. By 1512 Sebastian was certainly employed by Henry VIII as a cartographer at Greenwich. In the same year he accompanied the English explorer Hugh Willoughby to Spain, where he was made captain by Ferdinand V. After Ferdinand's death he returned to England. In 1516, Cabot and Sir Thomas Pert, then Vice Admiral of England, sailed in two ships to explore the coasts of Brazil and the West Indies for Henry VIII.[1] After coming under artillery fire at Hispaniola, the expedition withdrew and returned to England reportedly because of Pert's faint-heartedness.[2][3] Subsequently, Cabot moved to Spain due to greater support for explorations by the Spanish king.[4] In 1522, although once more in the employ of Spain as a member of the Council of the Indies and holding the rank of pilot-major, he secretly offered his services to Venice, undertaking to find the Northwest Passage to China. Cabot finally received the rank of captain general from Spain, and was entrusted on March 4, 1525, with the command of a fleet which was to determine from astronomical observation the precise demarcation of the Treaty of Tordesillas and then to convey settlers to the Moluccas, in order to strengthen Spanish claims there. It was officially noted as an expedition "for the discovery of Tharsis, Ophir, and Eastern Cathay." This expedition consisted of four ships with 200 men, and set sail from Sanlucar de Barrameda on April 3, 1526. This voyage might have resulted in a second circumnavigation of the world. Upon landing in Brazil, however, rumors of the wealth of the Incan king and the nearly-successful invasion of Aleixo García caused Cabot to abandon his charge and instead further explore the interior of the Río de la Plata. Cabot had already earned the disapproval of his crew by stranding the fleet in the doldrums and running the flagship aground off Santa Catarina Island. His decision regarding the Río de la Plata led to open resistance from Martin Méndez (his lieutenant general), Miguel de Rodas (pilot of the capitana), and Francisco de Rojas (the captain of one of the other vessels). He dealt with the mutiny by marooning them and other officers on Santa Catarina Island. He then traveled into the Río de la Plata and spent five months exploring the estuary. He established a fort called San Salvador at the confluence of the Uruguay and the Río San Salvador. This was the first Spanish settlement in modern-day Uruguay. Leaving the two larger ships there, he sailed up the Paraná in the brigantine and a galley constructed at Santa Catarina. His party constructed a small fort called Santo or Espíritu Santo at the confluence of the Paraná and the Río Carcarañá. This was the first Spanish settlement in present-day Argentina; the town of Caboto was later constructed nearby and named in his honor. Losing 18 men to an ambush, he returned to San Salvador, passing Diego García's expedition as he went. Cabot sent one ship back to Spain, with his reports, accusations against the mutineers, and requests for further aid. In the spring of 1529, he returned upriver to Espíritu Santo, which he discovered had been overwhelmed and burnt by the Indians during his absence. He recovered the cannon and returned to San Salvador. At a council on 6 August 1529, it was decided to return to Spain. Cabot sailed with García to São Vicente. Purchasing 50 slaves there, [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
