        Two Test Oaths, The First Combating Catholic Doctrines and the Second Rejecting James III?s Claim to the Throne

      An extremely rare pair of broadsides offering a series of oaths pledging fealty to the reign of George I. The first attests to George I as rightful King of England, rejects any influences of the Pope and Roman Catholicism (shown below), and rejects transubstantiation (turning bread and wine into the body and blood of Christ) as an article of faith. The second broadside is a complete rejection of James III?s or his progeny?s claims to England?s, or anyone else?s, throne. [KING GEORGE I] Broadside. ?Oaths Appointed to be taken instead of the Oaths of Allegiance and Supremacy, and Declaration,? pledged and signed by Josiah Wolcot[t], Salem, Mass., March 26, 1722. Also pledged and signed: Thomas Burrill, May 20, 1722; William Gedney, July 19, 1722; and John Williams, August 7, 1722. Includes witness signatures.[KING GEORGE I] Broadside. ?Declaration? [to the reign of King George], pledged and signed by Josiah Wolcot[t], Salem, Mass., March 26, 1722. Also pledged and signed: Thomas Burrill, May 20, 1722; William Gedney, July 19, 1722; and John Williams, August 7, 1722. Includes witness signatures.Excerpt of the Second Oath, Rejecting the Pope?s Authority ?I...Do Swear, That I do from my Heart, abhor, detest and abjure as Impious and Heretical, that damnable Doctrine and Position, that Princes Excommunicated, or deprived by the Pope or any authority of the See of Rome, may be Deposed or Murthered by their Subjects, or any other whatsoever; And I do declare that no Forein [sic]Prince, Person, Prelate, State or Potentate, hath or out to have any Jurisdiction, Power, Superiority, Preeminence or Authority, Ecclesiastical or Spiritual, within the Realm of GREAT BRITAIN. So Help me GOD.?Historical BackgroundExcept in Maryland, most colonial Americans (and their English forefathers) found Catholicism anathema. Catholics were excluded from voting and holding public office, forbidden to have churches and schools, and were subject to numerous other legal disabilities. Public officials were required to take ?test oaths? attesting to their rejection of Catholic doctrine and loyalty to English monarchs. The English Civil War, beginning in 1642, threw the nation into nearly a century of political turmoil. While the both monarchy and the Church of England returned with the Restoration of Charles II in 1660, religious conflicts between Catholics and Protestants continued to dominate the political landscape. When Charles II died, James II, a Roman Catholic, became king. James?s Catholicism led English noblemen to invite William III (of Orange) to invade. James would prove to be the last Catholic King of England, and abdicated during the Glorious Revolution (1688). Protestants William and Mary ruled Britain until their deaths, hers in 1694, and his in 1702, at which time Mary?s daughter Anne ascended the throne.Upon James II?s death in exile in 1701, his son James Francis Edward Stuart (1688-1766),declared himself King James III and was immediately recognized by the predominantly Catholic nations of France, Spain, the Papal States, and Modena, his mother?s birthplace. He mounted his own invasion in 1708, which failed. The 1701 Act of Settlement forbade Catholics from attaining the throne, so when Queen Anne died in 1714, George I, a German Protestant, ascended the throne and established the Hanoverian line. In 1715, James III (who was also James VIII of Scotland) joined the Jacobite Uprising, returned to Scotland, and challenged George I for the throne. When popular support withered, he returned to France and eventually moved to Rome, where he died in 1766, having lived to see his son, ?Bonny? Prince Charlie?s 1745 effort to regain the throne also end in failure at the Battle of Culloden. These particular loyalty and test oaths followed in the wake of James III?s (the ?Old Pretender?) final, failed attempt at the English throne. In the 1721, officials uncovered the plot, led by Bishop Francis Atterbury and fellow Scottish Jacobites, with the goal of deposing George I and returning James III from exile. Atterbury was arrested in 1721 and by 1722 was imprisoned in the Tower of London. In this Oath, Wolcott and the others are actually pledging their loyalty under provisions of the 1715 Oath Act, which Parliament passed in the wake of James III?s attempt at the throne in that year. This 1715 act required British clergy, political and judicial officeholders, schoolmasters, and constables to pledge their allegiance to King George I as England?s legitimate King, to the Church of England as its national faith, and to reject anything that smacked of Popery?"even to the point of murder! The Oath Act was amended in 1723 to require loyalty oaths from all British subjects, not just officeholders. These two pieces represent a time of intrigue during the reign of George I?"the period between uncovering a serious threat to his power and Parliament tightening the law requiring oath-taking. There are many examples of earlier oaths to Charles II, William III, and Anne; and later oaths to George II and III, but none pledging loyalty to George I appear in Worldcat, COPAC, or the catalogs of the Library of Congress, British Library, National Archives of the U.K., American Antiquarian Society, Boston Athenaeum, or Massachusetts Historical Society. After contacting a number of the above institutions, we could not locate another similarly-dated example. One comparable oath from c. 1714 appears in the collection of the National Archives of the United Kingdom when searching in the English Short Title Catalog (ESTC) of the British Library, but not in the actual catalog of the National Archives. We are currently in discussion with them to locate it.Josiah Wolcott, Esquire, was born in England in 1658 and died in 1729. He was a town Selectman and Judge of the Common Pleas in Salem, Essex County, Massachusetts. Theophilus Burrill, (1669-1737) was a businessman, court officer, and Justice of the Peace in Lynn, Massachusetts. Along with his brother, he donated silver sacrament vessels to the First Congregational Church in Lynn. He sold his inherited tannery in 1721. In 1725, he was a special justice to the Inferior Court of Common Pleas for Essex County and in 1733 he was named a full Judge of the Inferior Court of Common Pleas. The Burrill family was known as Lynn?s royal family on account of their famous connections. William Gedney, Esquire, (1668-1729) was a Salem merchant, Sheriff, and prominent in public affairs. His uncle Bartholomew Gedney presided over the Salem Witch Trials of 1692-93.

        L' Asie dressee selon les dernieres Relations et Suivant les Nouvelles Decouverts?

      Paris: 1722. Engraved double page map, 28" x 20", wide margins, hand colored in outline, two uncolored pictorial cartouches. Expert and nearly invisible repairs along centerfold, normal aging; about near fine. Impression is bright and clean. Nicholas De Fer (1646-1720) was a highly respected and prolific French cartographer whose maps were valued for their decorative appeal. Around 1690 he was made the geographer to the Dauphin, and published his first atlas. He would become geographer to other high-ranking individuals in French and Spanish society. The present map is detailed and attractive map of Asia, with a cartouche showing Chinese at the upper left, and Indians in the upper right. The map covers a lot of territory showing Arabia and the Persian Empire in the West, and Japan in the east, but goes as far south as the Isle of Borneo and Java. Part of Eastern Europe is also visible. Library.missouri.edu

        NUOVO LIBRO DI CARATTERI DIVERSI DE SCRITTURA FORMATA, E CORSIVA PERFETTA. AD USO PRATTICO E MODERNO . ED INTAGLIATTI DA DE BEREY IN PARIGGI

      Reycends & Guibert, Torino 1722 - oblong folio. contemporary blue wrappers. 26 engraved leaves (of 28). Text in Italian. A manual by Italian writing master Pitois. One of a number of his works produced in Turin by Reycends Brothers and the book/mapseller firm Guibert. At the beginning of the 18th century, the Rome-Venice hegemony in penmanship was waning, due to growing French influence in calligraphy. This slant towards French taste is revealed in the "Moderno" of the title and the fact that most of the twenty-six leaves are marked as engraved in Paris by artist Claude-Auguste de Berey. From 1690 to 1730 de Berey, or Berey, engraved the plates for several well-known French works on calligraphy. All the firm's writing manuals printed at this time were engraved in Paris (Barker, p. 147). Two leaves lacking. Soiled, margins chipped, old fold at center. Marks in ink throughout.

        L'Art de convertir le Fer forgé en Acier, et l'Art d'adoucir le Fer fondu, ou de faire des Ouvrages de fer fondu aussi finis que de fer forgé

      Seventeen folding engraved plates. 10 p.l., 566, [2] pp. Large 4to, cont. marbled calf (joints & corners with very careful repairs), spine nicely gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine. Paris: M. Brunet, 1722. First edition of the first comprehensive book devoted to the manufacture of iron and steel; it "laid the foundations of the steel industry in France."-Partington, III, p. 64. Réaumur was the first to recognize that steel was actually impure iron and set up the first scale of seven types of fracture of iron and steel. The fine plates are valuable for illustrating the contemporary apparatus and methods of converting iron into steel. For a detailed account of this book, see D.S.B., XI, pp. 328-30. A fine and handsome copy. Ex Bibliotheca Mechanica. ❧ Roberts & Trent, Bibliotheca Mechanica, pp. 273-74-"Réaumur's most original contribution to industrial technology...Part one, containing twelve memoirs, deals with the production of steel from the construction of the furnaces, through the tempering process and the apparatus used to determine the hardness of the finished product. The second part, in six memoirs, describes the various kinds of cast iron, and of casting methods, moulds, additives, and furnaces. As well, it explains a process for producing cast iron using red oxide of iron, which was unique to the 19th century." .

        A Sermon Preached by a French Hugonot [sic] Teacher to his congregation in 1689 in praise of Cuckoldom Printed at Cologne in French, and now translated into English, for the consolation of all English cuckolds

      London: printed, and sold by T. Warner, at the Sign of the Black-Boy in Pater-Noster-Row, 1722. First edition in English of this amusing "back-handed condemnation" of cuckold-making. 12mo. 24 pp. Twentieth-century full brown bear skin with the fur still on, marbled endpapers by John Field. Faint foxing to text, fur binding fine. ESTC T89694 . The cuckold plays his part in the stereotypical imagery of 18th-century frivolity-connected to the realm of erotic conspiracy and license. "Our wives are lovely,"acknowledges the author, "why should they not be beloved?- We live in an age where men sell their consciences for a bribe, why should not we then sell our wives' favors for good posts and precious things?- Let us discretely wink at their stealths." "Offering insight into the mentality of the public as they engaged in loose morality and cuckold-making, this piece is perhaps the most compelling evidence of back-handed condemnation. It includes the wife's perspective and moral justification for her behavior. These justifications, though, seem trivial [to the modern reader] and show themselves to be mere attempts at pacifying the cuckold's guilty conscience" (Ryan Gritter)

        Histoire de l'Amerique Septentrionale.

      Paris: Jean-Luc Nion and Francois Didot, 1722. - 4 volumes. 12mo., (6 ½ x 3 ¾ inches). Letterpress title pages printed in red and black in all four volumes; additional engraved title page in volume one by Jean-Baptiste Scotin (b. 1678). 2 fine folding engraved maps, one full-page map, folding view of Quebec, 9 folding plates, 15 full-page plates, 2 plates of musical notation (very slightly toned). Contemporary brown speckled calf, the spine in 6 compartments with five raised bands, gilt lettered in two and decorated in the rest (extremities a bit worn, hinges weakened). First edition. "THE EARLIEST VIEWS TAKEN IN CANADA" (Sabin). An early contemporary history of the Indian nations of Canada and their relations with the French and English, written by a French naval officer serving in Hudson's Bay and New France between 1697 and 1714. Bacqueville's epistolary account derives chiefly from his own observations of the capture of Fort Nelson and Frontenac's administration, and also summarizes the earlier stewardship of Denonville, the French establishment on the St. Lawrence, the Hudson's Bay expeditions, and the Iroquois Nation's method of making war and contracting alliances. "This work relates entirely to Canada and the Iroquois Indians; the plates comprise the earliest views taken in Canada" (Sabin). The maps include: "Carte de la Baye et Detroit d'Hudson," "Carte du Gouvernement du Montreal," and "Carte Generalle [sic] de la Nouvelle France." "Of the four volumes of the 'Histoire,' volumes I, III, and IV are in the form of letters; the first is the best written and most trustworthy. Here La Potherie is an eye witness and an excellent observer. His letters on the governments of Quebec, Trois-Rivieres, and Montreal offer a fairly complete picture of Canada. The descriptions of places and of the settlers' way of life, the notes on individuals, the statistics on population and sources of revenue show that nothing escaped La Potherie's attention and that he wanted his readers to be well informed. He notes the rivalry between Quebec and Montreal, but without stressing it. If he narrates, he does not refrain from judging. It is not to France's interest, he affirms, to keep Hudson Bay; Canadian trade would suffer. He regrets that Montreal has not been made the capital of Canada "The purpose of volume II, which is divided into chapters and written in a less careful style, is to make known the principal Indian nations and their relations with the French colony. La Potherie had intended to go and study on the spot the problems that he tackles here. As his stat of health did not permit that, he contented himself with gathering his information from reliable witnesses: Louis Jolliet, the Jesuit missionaries, and especially Nicolas Perrot. According to Father Jules Tailhan, a Jesuit and editor of Perrot's Memoire, the latter may not only have given La Potherie verbal information but even have made accessible to him accounts that today are no longer to be found "Volumes III and IV are devoted particularly to an account of the Iroquois wars and of the peace parleys which resulted in the general treaty of 1701. For events prior to 1698, the date of his arrival in Canada, La Potherie relied on his informants, whose statements were trustworthy, but not always complete. From 1698 to 1701, although he took no official part in the peace parleys, he followed them closely. During the summer of 1701 he was at Montreal and Sault-Saint-Louis. He also had access to documents which he quotes readily. He summarizes the speeches of Calliere and of the chiefs of the various nations" (Leon Pouliot for CNB).

        The Life, and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe…. [and] The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe;

      1722. The Rare First Illustrated CrusoeThe Beginning of Realistic Fiction as a Literary GenreHandsomely Bound By Francis Bedford[DEFOE, Daniel]. The Life, and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe…. London: Printed for W. Taylor, 1722. [Together with][DEFOE, Daniel]. The Farther Adventures of Robinson Crusoe; Being the Second and Last Part of his Life, and of the Strange Surprizing Account of his Travels Round three Parts of the Globe. London: Printed for W. Taylor, 1722.Sixth edition of Volume I, third edition of Volume II. Two octavo volumes (7 1/2 x 4 9/16 inches; 190 x 106 mm.). [4], 364, [4, ads]; 318, [2, ads] pp.  Volume I: title-page printed in red and black, with ship vignette; engraved frontispiece, folding engraved map of the world (from Volume II), and 6 engraved plates. Volume II: title-page in black, with ship vignette, and 6 engraved plates.Bound by F. Bedford in early nineteenth century full red crushed levant morocco. Covers with multi-gilt rules and decorative thistle corner pieces. Spines with five raised bands, decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt, gilt board-edges and turn-ins, all edges gilt, dark green coated endpapers.A fine and very attractive copy this very rare imprint, being the first illustrated edition of Robinson Crusoe. The only other copy that I have seen was from the collection of Marjorie Moon (DJB). OCLC only records only three copies of the first volume (Emory Harvard & Michigan)but no copies of the second volume. However ESTC (English Short Title Catlogue) does record five copies of volumes one and two (Emory, Rutgers, Illinois, Michigan and Yale).The first edition of 1719 is illustrated by just a frontispiece and a folding map. It is a high-spot in book collecting and commands a very price. It is a also a bibliographic challenge with many issue points. The Frederick S. Peck copy in a similar 'Bedford' binding was sold for $55,825 by Sotheby's in 2010. "The Sixth Edition is at the same time both rare and interesting. It is the first of the Taylor editions appearing with the red and black title-page which was so popular on the continent…And it is the first edition of Part I appearing with the illustrations, interesting in the extreme as forerunners of the long line of famous engravings by illustrious artists to follow through the remainder of the century…The Third Edition shows good presswork, and is especially interesting on account of the six plates, together with the map, which, because it is not mentioned on the title-page, is frequently overlooked" (Hutchins). Robinson Crusoe is a novel by Daniel Defoe, which was first published on 25 April 1719. The first edition credited the work's fictional protagonist Robinson Crusoe as its author, leading many readers to believe he was a real person and the book a travelogue of true incidents. It was published under the considerably longer original title The Life and Strange Surprizing Adventures of Robinson Crusoe, Of York, Mariner: Who lived Eight and Twenty Years, all alone in an un-inhabited Island on the Coast of America, near the Mouth of the Great River of Oroonoque; Having been cast on Shore by Shipwreck, wherein all the Men perished but himself. With An Account how he was at last as strangely deliver'd by Pyrates. Epistolary, confessional, and didactic in form, the book is a fictional autobiography of the title character (whose birth name is Robinson Kreutznaer) - a castaway who spends years on a remote tropical island near Trinidad, encountering cannibals, captives, and mutineers before being rescued.The story is widely perceived to have been influenced by the life of Alexander Selkirk, a Scottish castaway who lived for four years on the Pacific island called "Más a Tierra" (in 1966 its name was changed to Robinson Crusoe Island), Chile. However, other possible sources have been put forward for the text. It is possible, for example, that Defoe was inspired by the Latin or English translations of Ibn Tufail's Hayy ibn Yaqdhan, an earlier novel also set on a desert island. Another source for Defoe's novel may have been Robert Knox's account of his abduction by the King of Ceylon in 1659 in "An Historical Account of the Island Ceylon," Glasgow: James MacLehose and Sons (Publishers to the University), 1911. In his 2003 book In Search of Robinson Crusoe, Tim Severin contends that the account of Henry Pitman in a short book chronicling his escape from a Caribbean penal colony and subsequent shipwrecking and desert island misadventures, is the inspiration for the story. Arthur Wellesley Secord in his Studies in the narrative method of Defoe (1963: 21–111) painstakingly analyses the composition of Robinson Crusoe and gives a list of possible sources of the story, rejecting the common theory that the story of Selkirk is Defoe's only source.Despite its simple narrative style, Robinson Crusoe was well received in the literary world and is often credited as marking the beginning of realistic fiction as a literary genre. Before the end of 1719 the book had already run through four editions, and it has gone on to become one of the most widely published books in history.Hutchins, pp. 83, 115.

Zum andermal vermehr heraus gegeben." - - DER CHIRURG DES GROSSEN KURFÜRSTEN - Eines der seltensten frühen deutschen Chirurgiewerke! - Aus Lüben in Schlesien, war Matthäus Gottfried Purmannn (1648-1711) einer der berühmtesten Wundärzte seiner Zeit. Als Militärarzt war er 9 Jahre in brandenburgischen Diensten. Dabei sammelte er in den vielen Feldzügen wertvolle chirurgische Erfahrungen. Besonders im pommerschen Krieg gegen die Schweden, namentlich 1677 vor Stettin in Bezug auf die schweren Verletzungen durch die gläsernen Granaten des Gegners. - Der Friede von St.Germain beendete die Kriegshändel des Großen Kurfürsten. Purmann nahm seinen Abschied und wurde Stadtarzt in Halberstadt. Da er später in der kleinen, von der Pest dezimierten Stadt kein ausreichendes Auskommen fand, kaufte er 1684 eine Offizin in Breslau, wo er dann bis zu seinem Tode als hochgeachteter Stadtarzt wirkte. - Eigentlich ohne wissenschaftliche Bildung, ein geschickter und mutiger Handwerkschirurg, erhielt er seine beste Ausbildung im Krieg, der Mutter der Chirurgie. Die deutsche Chirurgie verdankt ihm viel. So die erste Transfusion (1668 mit Lammblut; dazu die schöne Tafel in unserer Ausgabe). Er erprobte die Infusion an sich selbst und hatte bis 1684 schon 40 Trepanationen ausgeführt, wobei er die Knochenspäne mit einem Röhrchen fortblies. Während die Kunst der Plastischen Chirurgie bei seinen Zeitgenossen weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten war, gibt Purmann ausführliche Hinweise zur Transplantation und zur Wiederherstellungschirurgie (Zeis, Gesch. d. Plast. Chir., SS.24-25, no.150). Sehnenverletzungen der Hand band er mit in Alkohol konservierten Darmsaiten zusammen. Ein Aneurysma hat er totalexstirpiert und bei der Behandlung der Bauchbrüche verwendete er die innere Naht des Bruchsackes ohne Kastration, er praktiziert den Kaiserschnitt an der Lebenden, die Tracheotomie, ferner berichtet er über Anheilung einer fast ganz abgehauenen Ohrmuschel, deren Wundflächen zuerst "geritzet", und dann mit einem Heftpulver bestreut und mit Heftpflaster befestigt wurden, etc. - Ein Pionierwerk deutscher Chirurgie! - Siehe ausführlich zur Ohrenheilkunde - A.Politzer, Gesch. d.

        A new theory of the earth, from its original, to the consummation of all things.

      Benj. and Sam. Tooke, London 1722 - 8vo. [4], 95, [1], 460pp. Frontispiece, 7 plates, text illustrations. Paneled calf c. 1722, hinges cracking, corners a bit rubbed. Corner of leaf U2 torn away not affecting text. Engraved bookplate of Ambrose Isted tipped to verso of title. Third edition, "with great additions, improvements and corrections." Whiston's "New Theory of the Earth," first published in 1696, attempted to combine science and religion by basing the creation story on Newtonian physics. Whiston postulated that the earth originated from the atmosphere of a comet and that all major changes in earth's history, including the Noachian Flood, could be attributed to the action of comets. The work is dedicated to Newton, whom Whiston succeeded as Lucasian Professor at Cambridge in 1701. Wing W-1696

        The Fortunes and Misfortunes of the Famous Moll Flanders &c. Who Was Born in Newgate

      Holland: ?, 1722. This book is obviously a 19th century production. It resets the original text including the title page word for word dated 1722 although there is no attempt to deceive. At the bottom of the title page it states Printed in Holland but there is no other information regarding date or publisher. The binding is a good quality three quarter calf with marbled boards and the block is gilt top edge. The front pastedown bears the armorial library plate of Ricardi F.GVL.Brandt and the title page the stamp of R.F.W.Brandt, possibly a son. There are references to RFW Brandt making ceramic bequests to the Victoria & Albert Museum so the book probably has some pedigree. A publishing enigma and extremely scarce.. Three-Quarter Calf. Very Good. 180x120mm.

Workman, the son of a shopkeeper in Wandsworth, was apprenticed to Francis Hauksbee the younger in 1714, and was working 1723-26 (see Clifton, Directory of Scientific Instrument Makers). He made ‘all sorts of Instruments and Machines, used in the several Parts both of Mathematicks and Natural Philosophy . Likewise Air-Pumps .’ and medical apparatus.This issue of Sprat’s History has a cancel title-page, with just Samuel Chapman as the publisher. ‘In 1663, on Wilkins's nomination, Sprat became a fellow of the Royal Society. At about the same time he was commissioned to write a ‘history’ of the society - a public statement of its aims, methods, and achievements, that might meet criticisms of the Royal Society’s limited productivity in the three years since its foundation, and quell fears that experimental science would challenge the belief structures of Restoration society. Neither before nor after writing the History did Sprat demonstrate any interest in natural philosophy, even though he remained a member of the society until his death’ (ODNB). (ESTC T131280)

        Abhandlung von der Gicht und allen langwierigen Krankheiten . nebst einem Vorschlag ihrer Heilung. + Falconer, W.: Anmerkungen über Herrn Cadogan Schrift der Gicht und den übrigen Krankheiten.

      - Frankfurt u. Leipzig, Christian Gottlieb Hertel, 1722, Kl.8°, (14), 146 pp.; Berlin, Haube und Spener, 1773, 8°, (8), 120 pp., Pappband der Zeit; unbeschnittenes Exemplar. Not common first German Edition, bound with the first German edition of William Falconer's (1724-1844) "Observations on Dr. Cadogan's Dissertation on the gout and all chronic diseases." - - The clyster and other "rather fierce methods of treatment received a temporary setback when Dr. William Cadogan (1711-1799) published his best-selling book, A Dissertation on the Gout and on All Chronic Diseases (1771), which he dedicated "to all invalids." In it, he refuted specific treatment and, with great originality as was then thought, advocated a permanently temperate way of life. He wrote: "How ill can vomiting, bleeding and purging supply the place of temperance; cordials and opium of peace of mind? . It is the constant course of life which we lead, what we do, or neglect to do habitually that, if right, establishes our health; if wrong, makes us invalids for life." Nevertheless he later relented somewhat and said that: "I think the causes may be very fairly reduced to these three: Indolence, Intemperance and Vexation. . . . It is by their own fault that they are ill. Nonetheless medical treatment can do good." Dr. Samuel Johnson was asked his opinion of this work by Boswell, and thought that: " 'This a good book in general, Sir, but a foolish one as to particulars." No doubt this was because for his own gout Johnson preferred and practised drastic treatment which included enormous doses of dr. James powder of antimony, such as were supposed to have killed his friend, Olvier Goldsmith." - Dr. William Cadogan, F.R.S. (1711-1797), qualified originally at Leyden, but later became physician to the Foundling Hospital in London. William Munk described him as being "of pleasing manners and strong good sense, who by his writing did draw much attention to himself, and paved the way to a lucrative business." His Dissertation on the Gout (1771) attracted great attention and went through eleven editions (in two years); whilst his sturdy common sense and advocacy of moderation in all things did much to dispel the mystique which had long surrounded this disease. The great actor, David Garrick, who was a sufferer, wrote of this: "Dr. C. has written a book lately upon ye gout. It is much admired and certainly has its merit-I was frightened with it for a week." Cadogan maintained that the causes of gout were three in number: "Indolence, Intemperance and Vexation. . So it is by the patient's own fault that he is ill," and although he realized that this was sometimes recognized by enlightened physicians, he declared: "Nonetheless, they are afraid to say so, and this talk seems to have been left to me, and I will perform it most sincerely." He concluded: "Let me say that an active and frugal life is a safe preventative, and may be a cure." Cadogan built himself a pleasant country house near London which is now the Hurlingham Club, home of English polo, to which he retired and died at the age of 86." W.S.C. Copeman, A Short history of the Gout, pp.4,7,16,84-89 - "For the treatment of chronic diseases Cadogan advocated Activity, Temperance and Peace of Mind. The prescription of the modem geriatrician!"

        Grosser und gantz Neu-gewundener Lorbeer-Krantz, oder Wund-Artzney. ....

      . Leipzig, Rohrlach, 1722, 4°, 14 Bl, 980 pp., 28 Bl., Portrait u. Kupfertitel, schwarz-rot Titel, und 12 (1 in Faksimile) gefalt. Kupfertafeln, Pergamenteinband der Zeit; wie meist gebräunt und etwas fleckig; schönes Exemplar.. Dritte Auflage des neugewundenen Lorberr-Krantz erschienen unter folgendem Titel: - "Grosser und gantz Neu-gewundener Lorbeer-Krantz oder Wund-Artzney. In III. Theil und 127. Capitel abgetheilet. Darinne Ein jedweder Chirurgus aufs beste und Grund-richtigste sehen kan, was bey allen Wunden und Verletzungen des gantzen menschlichen Leibes / auch Schäden / Fisteln, Geschwülsten / Beinbrüchen / Verrenckungen u. ja alle und jede, neueste und rareste Dinge, so in die Chirurgie gehören / und von den Wund-Aerzten / Oculisten / Stein- und Bruchschneidern / bisher geheim gehalten worden / sie haben Nahmen wie sie wollen / vor Cur-Vortheile und Artzney-Mittel müssen angewendet werden / wenn sie bständig und geschwind curiret werden sollen. - Wobey zugleich unterschiedene merk-würdige CASUS, so in hiesiger Praxi und Spittälern vorgefallen, samt deren Curen, kürzlich, doch ausführlich, mit beschrieben werden / - Durch und durch mit kurz-gefaßten Erfindungen verständigen neuen und richtigen Ursachen / deutlichen Kennzeichen / raren Anmerkungen / leichten und subtilen Handgriffen / und mit den bewährten Artzney-Mitteln und Cur-Vortheilen versehen und ausgezieret / samt vielen dazu dienenden schönen Kupfer-Tabellen. Zum andermal vermehr heraus gegeben." - - DER CHIRURG DES GROSSEN KURFÜRSTEN - Eines der seltensten frühen deutschen Chirurgiewerke! - Aus Lüben in Schlesien, war Matthäus Gottfried Purmannn (1648-1711) einer der berühmtesten Wundärzte seiner Zeit. Als Militärarzt war er 9 Jahre in brandenburgischen Diensten. Dabei sammelte er in den vielen Feldzügen wertvolle chirurgische Erfahrungen. Besonders im pommerschen Krieg gegen die Schweden, namentlich 1677 vor Stettin in Bezug auf die schweren Verletzungen durch die gläsernen Granaten des Gegners. - Der Friede von St.Germain beendete die Kriegshändel des Großen Kurfürsten. Purmann nahm seinen Abschied und wurde Stadtarzt in Halberstadt. Da er später in der kleinen, von der Pest dezimierten Stadt kein ausreichendes Auskommen fand, kaufte er 1684 eine Offizin in Breslau, wo er dann bis zu seinem Tode als hochgeachteter Stadtarzt wirkte. - Eigentlich ohne wissenschaftliche Bildung, ein geschickter und mutiger Handwerkschirurg, erhielt er seine beste Ausbildung im Krieg, der Mutter der Chirurgie. Die deutsche Chirurgie verdankt ihm viel. So die erste Transfusion (1668 mit Lammblut; dazu die schöne Tafel in unserer Ausgabe). Er erprobte die Infusion an sich selbst und hatte bis 1684 schon 40 Trepanationen ausgeführt, wobei er die Knochenspäne mit einem Röhrchen fortblies. Während die Kunst der Plastischen Chirurgie bei seinen Zeitgenossen weitgehend in Vergessenheit geraten war, gibt Purmann ausführliche Hinweise zur Transplantation und zur Wiederherstellungschirurgie (Zeis, Gesch. d. Plast. Chir., SS.24-25, no.150). Sehnenverletzungen der Hand band er mit in Alkohol konservierten Darmsaiten zusammen. Ein Aneurysma hat er totalexstirpiert und bei der Behandlung der Bauchbrüche verwendete er die innere Naht des Bruchsackes ohne Kastration, er praktiziert den Kaiserschnitt an der Lebenden, die Tracheotomie, ferner berichtet er über Anheilung einer fast ganz abgehauenen Ohrmuschel, deren Wundflächen zuerst "geritzet", und dann mit einem Heftpulver bestreut und mit Heftpflaster befestigt wurden, etc. - Ein Pionierwerk deutscher Chirurgie! - Siehe ausführlich zur Ohrenheilkunde - A.Politzer, Gesch. d.
