        A View of the Courts of Wards and Liveries, with the officers, servants and other persons there assembled

      Vetusta Monumenta. 1751. - Copper engraving. Original outline colour. Size: 58 x 44 cm. (23 x 17½ inches). Very good condition. Crisp and clean, good margins. The lower corners are creased, repairs on rear along the plate lined. Beautiful engraving of the Court of Wards and Liveries in session, eleven men seated round the table, while others look on. The engraver, George Vertue has copied this from a contemporary original. He identifies Lord Burghley as the man at the head of the table and, in a lengthy text below the engraving, he deduces who the other figures seated round the table are. In the days before photography, engravings such as this were how visual historical records were kept. George Vertue, was employed by the Society of Antiquaries for this task, and made many engravings from paintings, plans and maps.

        Portrait engraving by François Morellon de la Cave (fl. 1700-1755) after Andrea Soldi (1703-after 1771)

      [?Paris]. 1751. The composer is depicted half-length holding a piece of music manuscirpt and a quill pen. 236 x 184 mm. A fine impression on laid paper. Staining to blank lower right area extending into image; several very small nicks to edges; minor repair to lower right corner; some abrasion to verso; trimmed to plate mark. . "Though consistently acknowledged as one of the greatest composers of his age, his reputation from his death to the early 20th century rested largely on the knowledge of a small number of orchestral works and oratorios, Messiah in particular. In fact, he contributed to every musical genre current in his time, both vocal and instrumental. The composition of operas, mainly on Italian librettos, dominated the earlier part of his career, and are the finest (though not the most typical) of their kind. In his later years his commitment to large-scale vocal works, usually with a strong dramatic element, found a more individual outlet in English oratorio, a genre that he invented and established."

        Inventum novum ex percussione thoracis humani ut signo abstrusos interni pectoris morbos detegendi.

      . Wien, Johann Trattner, 1751, 8°, 95, (1) pp., frisches, breitrandiges Exemplar im älteren Halbpergamenteinband im Stil der Zeit mit rotem Rückenschildchen.. "ONE OF THE GREAT CLASSIC OF MEDICINE" - First Edition, First Issue, without the errata on the verso of the last leaf (F 8), Complete! - - "Percussion of the abdomen as a means of distinguishing between tympanites and ascites dates back into antiquity, but percussion of the thorax starts with Leopold Auenbrugger whose Inventum Novum ex Percussione Thoracis Humani was published in I76i, the same year as Morgagni's great work on pathological anatomy. Auenbrugger's discovery of percussion was not entirely fortuitous for his father was an innkeeper, and he must have watched men tapping the wine barrels to find out how full or empty they were. - He was also a good musician and wrote the libretto of an opera (Antonio Salieri's - The chimney sweep) for which he was ennobled by the Empress in I784, so that evidently he had a good ear for sound. - Born at Gratz in I722, he studied medicine in Vienna under Van Swieten, graduating in 1752, and later became physician to the Spanish Hospital in Vienna where for seven years 'amid laborious and tedious exertions' he tested his method of percussion by dissections whenever possible and experimented on cadavers by filling the chest with water. Auenbrugger practised direct or immediate percussion, striking the patient's chest, covered by a shirt, with the finger tips of his gloved hand, first during normal breathing and then in full inspiration. He described the natural percussion sound in different parts of the chest, noting that over the space occupied by the heart the sound loses part of its natural clearness and becomes dull. His observations related mainly to lung disease, but two sections dealt with heart disease, namely section XLVI on dropsy of the pericardium and section XLVIII on aneurysm of the heart. He divided dropsy of the pericardium into serous and purulent varieties, noting a completely deadened percussion sound such as obtained by striking a fleshy limb. He also described the symptoms such as fainting, unequal pulse, swelling of the neck, and a tendency to fall asleep while sitting with the body inclined forwards, later described as the pillow sign by Blechmann. He defined aneurysm of the heart as a condition of overdistension of its cavities when they became unequal to propel their contents forward, and found a fleshy percussion sound over a considerable space in the region of the heart. - Auenbrugger's treatise proved to be premature as the anatomical conception of disease based on Morgagni took many years to permeate clinical medicine, so that percussion was virtually ignored by the majority of contemporary physicians, though Haller regarded it favourably and Stoil seems to have practised it in Vienna where others were hostile. - The treatise was twice republished in Latin and Roziere de la Chassagne included a French translation in his manual on pulmonary disease (I770), stating that though he had not used the method, it seemed free from danger! The credit of introducing percussion into clinical practice belongs to Corvisart who first learned of it from the works of Stoll whose aphorisms he had translated. He tested percussion in his clinic in Paris, described it in his famous textbook of i8o6, and published a second French translation of Auenbrugger's Inventum Novum in i8o8, together with his commentaries based on twenty years of experience." - "Auenbrugger's discovery had to wait half a century before it came into clinical use in Paris where it was soon overshadowed by Laennec's mediate auscultation which made him famous in his short lifetime. Nevertheless, percussion paved the way to physical diagnosis of heart disease, and as far as the heart is concerned Auenbrugger made fewer errors than Laennec. There is no doubt as to the important role of percussion of the heart in the preradiological era when great advances in cardiology were taking place, and I can do no better than to quote G. W. Balfour's Harveian Discourse of I887, in which he stated that nowadays when we can ascertain the dimensions of the heart and the state of its orifices with a precision which is almost perfect, we can scarcely realize the state of chaos into which ignorance of percussion and auscultation would plunge us!"

      New London: Timothy Green . 1751 - [2],32pp. 16mo. Modern blue cloth, gilt-lettered spine. Titlepage trimmed along top edge, touching the top of the first two words of the title. Hole (perhaps a paper flaw) in blank inner margin of the titlepage, not affecting text. Old dampstain throughout. Good. The rare third part of the landmark series of six essays on American agriculture by Jared Eliot. Though the title indicates that the text is limited to New England, Eliot discusses the state of "field husbandry" throughout the colonies, including New York and the South. The DAB emphasizes that for a long time these essays were "the most widely read and prized agricultural essays in America." This third essay contains much on the growing of grains, including wheat, barley, oats, and millet, as well as "Indian corn," and also discusses the need to drain swampland in order to reclaim it for crops. Through his agricultural essays Eliot helped to introduce the concept of soil conservation in the British colonies, and was largely responsible for introducing the silk industry to colonial America. Over the course of the six essays Eliot dismisses the opinion of some in Great Britain that the colonies are of little use. Eliot argues that as the colonial population increases, the number and quality of goods the colonies are able to send to Great Britain will also increase. But more importantly, the demand for British goods will likewise rise, giving Great Britain the double benefit of a greater supply network and a larger market. Eliot is also remembered fondly in New Haven for establishing Yale's first endowed fund to buy books, a legacy which funds purchases to this day. EVANS 6666. NAIP w037582.

Malmö, Ängelholm, Christianstad og Kullen. First edition. "Linné's travels from the 18th century are among the most loved and read of his writings. The secret of Linné is his undisputed clarity in physical description. He gives a detailed general description of the villages of middle and southern Sweden in the times of the search for freedom. Everything is important: household and manufacture, antiquities, popular medicine, and the general customs of the country population.
