Selten - Erste Deutsche Ausgabe! - Titel: Johann Taylors, Ritters, Doctors der Arzneykunst, Seiner Großbritannischen Majestät, und verschiedener anderen Durchlauchtigsten Fürsten hochbestallten Augenarztes ; wie auch Mitgliedes vieler Europäischen berühmten Academien der Wissenschaften u u. - Mechanismus oder Neue Abhandlung von der künstlichen Zusammensetzung des Menschliche Auges und den besonderen Nutzen desselben, sowohl vor sich, als in Absicht der anliegen Theile, Nebst Seiner Art, dessen Krankheiten zu heilen, Wie er solche bey einer mehr als zwanzigjährigen Erfahrung seiner durch Europa glücklich gethanen Augencuren bewährt befunden. - Mit den dazu gehörigen Kupfertafeln , Unter Königlich - Pohlnisch - und Chur-Sächsicher allergnädigsten Freyheit, und ausdrücklichen Bewilligung des Verfassers in Deutsche übersetzt. - - "Diese Werk begreift überhaupt in sich : - Die Zergliederung des Augapfels und seiner anliegenden Theile. - Eine optische Erklärung des Gesichts und alles dessen was sich dabey zuträgt. - Eine Erklärung der wahren Ursache des Schielens, und der fliegenden Flecken der Augen. - Einen Beweis des wahren Sitzes des Staars und des Glaucoma. - Eine vollkommene Beschreibung der neuen Operationen des Authors, worinnen gewiesen wird, daß man dieselben nicht nur zu aller Zeit vornehemn, sondern auch mit weniger Gefahr, und mit mehrer Gewißheit als nach der gewöhnlichen Art verrichten kan. - Hundert Fragen in welchen man zu entscheiden sucht, ob entweder das Aderhäutgen, oder das Nez das unmittelbare Werkzeug des Gesichts sey. - Anmerkungen über die Ursache und natur der verschiedenen Arten des schwarzen Staars. - Eine Beschreibung aller und jeder Augenkrankheiten. - Ein Verzeichnis der Schriftsteller welche über den Bau des Auges und dessen Krankheiten geschrieben. - - John Taylor (1703-1772), "auch "Chevalier Taylor" genannt, der bekannte und seine grenzenlose Charaltanerie berüchtigte fahrende Oculist des 18. Jahrhudert .... Dass Taylor wissenschaftlich durch aus nicht ungebildet war, beweisen seine zahlreichen z. Th. in vielen Sprachen erschienenen Schriften" Pagel, Hirsch-H. IV, pp.523-524 - - "Stricker's Urtheil lautet folgendermaßen: "Wohl selten war so viel wissenschaftliche Tüchtigkeit mit der unverschämtesten Charlatanerie in einem und demselben Mann verbunden. -cf. Hirschberg - - "So sicher es also ist, dass Taylor, und zwar zuerst in der Geschichte unseren Faches, von Muskel-Zerschneidung zur Heilung des Schielens gesprochen; ausgeführt hat er sie nicht. Wenigsten ist kein Fall bekannt. ... Taylor's unbedingt richtiger Gedanke über die Schiel-Operation ist leider , wegen der üblen Eigenschaften des Urhebers vollständig der Vergessenheit anheim gefallen." Hirschberg, Geschichte der Augenheil in der Neuzeit, 14/3 (1911), pp.293-312. - - "What sort of man was Taylor? He lived in an age when the blind were often decked with asses' ears and peacocks' feathers and exhibited in fairs as objects of amusement, and Taylor probably brought relief to many blind people, whatever his motives and however many his failures. He had studied with a genuine and eminent surgeon. Cheselden, a pupil of William Cowper, was surgeon to St. Thomas's Hospital from 1719 to 1738, and he became Master of the College of Surgeons after the split from the barbers; Pope was a patient of his. Moreover, Taylor had qualifications from several continental universities including Basle, Cologne, and Liege. (I have not been able to discover who-perhaps Taylor himself?.-conferred on him the title of 'Chevalier'). Some of what he wrote (especially on squint) is regarded as sound by modern authorities. He had a conscience and (at least at some times in his career) would not operate if he thought success was unlikely or intervention dangerous. In his early days he advised leaving unilateral cataracts alone since an operation 'may be the occasion of the loss of both the eyes', and was aware of the importance of the pupillary reaction. At times he would use other methods of treatment: he describes his cure, by suggestion, of a nobleman who 'believed himself blind, by a hypochondriac disorder'. - It would be hard to better Coats' summary of Taylor, which ends with these words: In professional matters his knowledge was good; he was a shrewd observer and not without original ideas; but his actual practice was deeply tainted with the dishonest arts of the quack. Many elements go to the formation of the complete charlatan-bombast, effrontery, dishonesty, ignorance. All these qualities Taylor showed in perfection-except ignorance, and this is his chief condemnation. - Of Taylor's life after 1761, when his autobiography appeared, little is known. He died, either in Paris or in a monastery near Prague, in 1772; and according to legend he was blind." David M. Jackson, BACH, HANDEL, AND THE CHEVALIER TAYLOR.

      Nuremberg 1750 - George Dionysius Ehret (1708-1770) is considered the most important and influential botanical artist of the mid-18th century. Born to farmers in Heidelberg, Germany in 1708, Ehret showed an early propensity for drawing, though as a young man he was employed primarily as a gardener. He used his time spent gardening to examine and practice drawing botanicals and the natural world around him. Having attracted the attention of noted botanical artist Johann Weinmann and noted Nuremberg physician Dr. Christoph Jakob Trew, he gained encouragement and financial support for his works. In 1736, Ehret met eminent botanist Carl Linnaeus, who created the first classification system of plants, and moved to England where he remained for the duration of his life. As a result of the arrival of new plant species to England and around Europe, Ehret was in position to draw and document them, further developing his skills. As instructor to the highest of English nobility, he engaged in his publication of Plantae Selectae with financial patronage and text from Dr. Trew. Plantae Selectae was published in Nuremberg in 1750-1773. Various scholars of the time praised the folio highly, singling out the excellent quality of Ehret’s botanical studies. These highly detailed engravings are brilliantly hand colored and still retain their vibrancy. This hand colored engraving, 20” x 14” is in very good condition with slight foxing and staining throughout. Ledum is a genus of evergreen shrubs, more commonly referred to as Labrador Tea. This engraving shows in comprehensive detail the different parts of the delicate flowers as well as the blooming tree branches.

        Kupferstichtafel Nr. 23: Die ganze Brust wegnehmen..

      . Eine Sammlung der 3 Tafeln von D. Lorenz Heister's "Chirurgie" ca. 1750 erschienen, 33x22cm. "Lorenz Heister muss als Begründer der wissenschaftlichen Chirurgie in Deutschland angesehen werden und also auch der Augenheilkunde, welche ja damals nur einen Zweig der Chirurgie darstellte. - In seinem berühmten chirurgischen Hauptwerke, das er in deutscher Sprache verfasste, hat er alle bleibenden Errungenschaften gesammelt, selbständig beurtheilt, durch eigene Erfahrungen und Gedanken abgerundet, - dem ersten in der Welt-Literatur. (...) J.Beer sagt 1799 (Repert. I, 97), dass die Chirurgie Heister's wohl alt sei, aber welcher Augenarzt wird sie nicht heute noch mit wahrem Vergnügen lesen? Das neunzehnte Jahrhundert ist vergangen, aber Beer's Urtheil ist noch heute gültig." Hirschberg/ 411. - Diese drei Kupferstiche mit ihren 68 Figuren zeigen das ganze Spektrum der Operationstechniken des Mitbegründers der wissenschaftlichen Augenheilkunde in der ersten Hälfte des 18. Jhdts. in Deutschland. Tafelerklärungen sind in Faksimile beigelegt.

        HORTUS NITIDISSIMIS . : Narcissus I; Baselmann Maior (print)

      - Original hand-coloured engraving drawn by "E" and executed by J. M. Seligmann. Image measures 19.9 x 14.2 inches (50.5 x 36 cm). Fine condition. Matted and ready for framing. From Christoph Trew's magnificent HORTUS NITIDISSIMIS OMNEM PER ANNUM SUPERBIENS FLORIBUS published in three volumes over a 36 year period from 1750-1786. Painted in a more opaque gouche to resemble a painting rather than the traditional practice of using translucent water-colours that allowed more of the engraving to show through. Each piece is meant to capture the flower at the peak of it's beauty instead of focusing solely on scientific detail. Several artists from different European nations were involved in this project giving a multi-ethnic flavour to the complete work. HORTUS NITIDISSIMIS is considered to be one of the most sumptuous of the florigelia. Being one of the most elusive of the great flower books, the opportunity to own one of these leaves is reserved for only the most discriminating collectors.
