About this Item: Estes and Lauriat, Boston, 1884. Handsomely bound in finely woven terracotta cloth stamped brightly in gold on the spine and with blindstamped rectangles along the edges of the front and rear boards. Lightly worn and rubbed at the top and bottom of the spine ends and at the corners. Very clean and tight throughout. Several pages unopened. The 2-page folding map of Concord is in splendid condition. Rather an uncommon and collectible book. Charles Hosmer Walcott was a lawyer in Concord, Massachusetts. The son of Joel Walcott, he was born (1848) and died (1901) in Concord. He graduated from Harvard in 1870 and studied law at Harvard Law School and in the office of Ebenezer Rockwood Hoar. In 1872, he became a partner in the Boston law firm of Buswell, Howe, & Walcott and also opened a law office in Concord. Walcott's legal work consisted largely of conveyancing. In 1886, he was appointed to the newly established State Board of Arbitration. He served Concord through a variety of offices, boards, and committees. He was Superintendent of Schools (1872), Assessor, Selectman, Overseer of the Poor, Library Committee member, and a member of committees for the 1875 centennial celebration of the Battle of Concord and the 1885 celebration of the 250th anniversary of the town's incorporation. Walcott was President of the Middlesex Institution for Savings. He was also a member of the Concord Antiquarian Society, the Social Circle in Concord, Shakespeare Club, Saturday Club, and Tuesday Club, as well as Curator of the Concord Lyceum. Walcott was married twice: in 1875 to Florence Keyes (daughter of John Shepard and Martha Lawrence Prescott Keyes), who died in 1877 shortly after the birth of their second son; in 1891 to Jessie McDermott, with whom he also had two children. Walcott published Concord in the Colonial Period in 1884 and Sir Archibald Campbell of Inverneill in 1898.

About this Item: Russell, Odiorne, and Company. John Stacy, Boston, 1835. A very handsome copy bound in quarter leather spine stamped brightly in gold; and leather tips. In marbled paper-covered board set off by bright golden rulers. With a touch of wear and scuffing at the top of the spine and the edge of one of the corners. Printed on quality white paper with a touch of foxing here and there with two smudges at the bottom corner of p. 361, not affecting text. Otherwise, very clean and tight throughout. Marbled endpapers and tight hinges. With the linen-backed folding map of Concord, MASS 1830 bound in at the front. Surveyed by John G. Hales. The map is dated 1830 and measures 22.5" x 18.5" and has a few notations and corrections in ink. It is lightly worn at the folds with some loss of paper along the second horizontal folds. With a small patch of paper, the size of a quarter, abraded in the right-hand corner, not affecting any lettering or map lines. "This scarce and lovely plan provides an immensely detailed view of the natural and human geography of early 19th-century Concord. Of primary interest are the named business establishments, dwellings with owners’ names, schools, and roads. Keyed symbols are employed to differentiate natural features such as hills, woodlands, meadows and ponds (including Walden Pond). The town boundaries are carefully delineated with respect to both length and direction. This map was first issued in 1830 as a separate, then again in Lemuel Shattuck’s 1835 History of the Town of Concord. The example offered here is from Shattuck." (Boston Rare Maps)A rather scarce map originally bound into this copy of Shattuck's History of Concord. Lemuel Shattuck (1793-1859) was a Boston politician, historian, bookseller and publisher. When he was 46, he retired from business to devote himself to his other interests. His research for his 1835 book on Concord history pointed up to him the neglect of vital records. This was one of his motivations in joining others to found the American Statistical Association in 1839. He also promoted legislation which required a better system for the registration of vital information. This law was passed in 1842. His work on a Boston census in 1845 resulted in him being summoned as a consultant for the 1850 United States Census. His 1850 report on a sanitary survey of Massachusetts was later praised as amazingly far-sighted.His role in designing and implementing the Boston Census of 1845 took him to Washington to help design federal models based on the same. His Report of the Sanitary Commission of Massachusetts in 1850 has been described as a prophetic document in its anticipation of public health developments Lemuel Shattuck is remembered at theLondon School of Hygiene & Tropical Medicine where his name appears on the School's Frieze. The names of 23 pioneers of public health and tropical medicine were chosen to be honored when the School was built in 1929.
