c. 1850 / 1860s pewter & tin camphene –LAMP

All original and in excellent original, even unused, condition save a small shallow dent on one side, (could be pushed out but we’d leave it as found) this little lamp is a bit unusual in that while the body is pewter, the fanciful applied handle is of tinned sheet iron and the bottom of the lamp is also of tinned sheet iron. The two slender burner tubes are of brass. Dangerous though it could be due to its volatility, camphene (a mixture of turpentine and alcohol) gained popularity in the 1850s and early 1860s as it produced a clean burning bright light. . The extra length and small diameter of the wick tube offered an extra measure of separation of flame from fuel reservoir and is a telltale feature of the camphene lighting device. Commonly thought solely to facilitate extinguishing the flame, the little chain secured caps were in actuality primarily for the prevention of evaporation of the fuel when not on use. As with all direct sales, we are pleased to offer a no questions asked three day inspection with refund of the purchase price upon return as purchased! Thanks for visiting Gunsight Antiques !

1851 Dispensatory of CS Surgeon S. B. Morrison – in attendance at the death of Stonewall Jackson

All original and complete this massive old leather bound 1456 page 1851 published medical reference shows good age with desirable evidence of period use while remaining in pleasing condition with a tight binding and is complete with no loose or torn pages. The cover, end papers and fly pages front and back are festooned with period medical notations (mostly prescription formulas) which appear to be in Dr. Morrison’s hand. Most important are the inscriptions Dr. S. B. Morrison in the center of the first front fly leaf and Dr. Morrison’s signature on the second fly leaf.
Best remembered as being in attendance at the death of Confederate General Thomas Stonewall Jackson, the presence of Surg. Morrison had been requested as Jackson’s recovery from his wounding and left arm amputation took a marked turn for the worse five days post-surgery. Summoned not only as relief for the weary Dr. McGuire who performed the amputation and post-operative care, Dr. S. B. Morrison’s presents at Jackson’s bedside was quickly approved by Gen. Robert E. Lee. Dr. Morrison was a kinsman of Mrs. Jackson and had been the Jackson family physician in the post-Civil War years. Additionally Surg. Morrison’s medical expertise had been well established when he successfully amputated Confederate Gen. R. S. Ewell’s badly wounded leg after the Battle of Groveton. Surgeon Morrison would provide the best of medical aid to the seriously ailing General Jackson and provide comfort to the fallen General’s wife Mary Anna Jackson and five month-old baby Julia who had been rushed to Stonewall’s bedside.. It would fall to Dr. S. B. Morrison to advise Mrs. Jackson that the end was near. Educated at Washington College (now Washington & Lee University) and the University of Virginia, Dr. Morrison enlisted in the 17th Virginia Cavalry at the outbreak of the Civil War. Later made Surgeon of the 58th Virginia then Chief Surgeon of Gen. R. S. Ewell's Division. On April 18,1863, he was made Chief Surgeon to Gen. Early's Division then October 10, 1864 assigned as Medical Director Army of the Valley. After the war, Dr. Morrison established a lucrative medical practice in Kerrs Creek, Virginia. Dr. S. B. Morrison died in 1870 at Rockbridge Baths, Virginia.
This historic old medical reference by Wood & Bache was published in 1851 and was the standard pharmaceutical authority of its day. We acquired the piece years ago when it was brought in at John Dugan’s Virginia Relic Hunters Civil War Show and offered for sale by descendants of Dr. Morrison. We have had it set aside in our fifty plus year accumulation of stuff since that time.
