        Herman Boerhaavs Phisiologie (Physiologie) / Uebersezt und mit Zusätzen vermehrt Von Johann Peter Eberhard Der Weltweisheit und Arzneigelahrtheit Doktor und der Weltweisheit ausserordentlichen Professor.

      - Halle im Magdeburgischen, 1754, 8°, (16), 1128 pp., (32 pp. Register, Halbpergamenteinband; einige Lagen im Rand wasserfleckig, ansonsten feines und frisches Exemplar. Erste deutsche Ausgabe des ersten akademischen Lehrbuches der Physiologie! - - "Boerhaaves "Institutiones medicae" erschienen seit 1708 in immer neuen Auflage. 1741 erfolgte die erste Übertragung ins Englische, 1740 ins Französische, 1754 *) unter dem Titel "Phisiologia" ins Deutsche. Dies Buch war das erste akademische Lehrbuch der Physiologie für Studenten. Die Wirkung dieses Titels: "Institutiones medicae" läßt sich in der Bezeichnung englischer und amerikanischer Lehrstühle für diesen Gegenstand verfolgen. Sie hießen sei damals vielfach "Instiutes of Medicine" und hatten vornehmlich Physiologie im Sinne Boerhaaves zum Lehr- und Forschungsgegenstand. So entstand in Edinburgh im Jahre 1726 ein Lehrstuhl mit der Bezeichnung "Institues of Medicine" unter Boerhaaves Schüler Andrew Sinclair. Er wurde erst 1874 in einen solchen für "Physiologie" umgewandelt." - "Im großen und ganzen enthält die Physiologie Boerhaaves keinen wesentlich Zuwachs an neuen Tatsachen. Doch bedeutet sein Versuch, die Physik und Chemie zur Erklärung der Vorgänge in der organischen Struktur heranzuziehen und die medizinische Krankheitslehre und Therapie von Boden naturwissenschaftlichen Erfahrungen systematisch zu begründen, einen lange nachwirkenden Anreiz zu ähnlichen Unternehmungen. Herman Boerhaave (1668-1738) hat vor allem seinen großen Schüler Albrecht von Haller für diese Fragen lebhaft interessiert und damit den Ausbau in der zweiten Hälfte des 18.Jahrhunderts den Weg bereitet." K.E.Rothschuh, Geschichte der Physiologie, pp.68-73 - - "In seinen experimentell-physikalischen Vorlesungen wirkte Johann Peter Eberhard (1828-1779) höchst fortschrittlich als Aufklärer und machte die Physik frei von allem Geheimnisvollen und Übernatürlichen, worauf auch die Titel seiner Bücher "Sammlung derer ausgemachten Wahrheiten in der Naturlehre" (Halle 1755) und "Abhandlungen vom physikalischen Aberglauben und der Magie" (ebenda 1778) hindeuten. Als Mediziner war er ein Anhänger Friedrich Hoffmanns; als Schriftsteller pflegte er neben der Zoologie und Physiologie insbesondere die Physik (Newtons Farbentheorie; Schall; Feuer, Licht und Elektrizität; Gewitter; Nordlicht; Himmelsfarbe) und die Mathesis applicata (Mühlenbaukunst, Hydrotechnik, Bergwerksmaschinen, Optik, Gnomonik). " Rudolph Zaunick, NDB 4 (1959), pp. 239-240 - - Lindeboom Nr. 76; *(Nr.75 (1734) weltweit nicht nachweis bar) [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Nach Blanqui ist Dutot der Autor, der sich am intensivsten mit dem System von Law und den Ursachen seines Zusammenbruchs auseinandersetzte. Sein Buch ist von bemerkenswerter Klarheit. Vom Autor selbst ist nur bekannt, dass er der Kassenverantwortliche der von Law gegründeten ""Compagnie des Indes"" war. According to Coquelin et Guillaumin (p. 628) this is the third edition. Blanqui writes that Dutot is the author who best analyzed Law's system and the reasons for its collapse. He considered the work ""d'une clarté admirable."". Little is known about the author Dutot, other than that he was cashier in the ""Compagnie des Indes"", founded by John Law.Bound in contemporary marbled calf, rubbed and bumped, hinges partly cracked but firm, spines chipped with floral decoration gilt in compartments, contrasting gilt lettering-piece to spine, only minor browning or foxing.Coquelin et Guillaumin S. 628, Kress 5341, Einaudi 1703, Higgs 851" [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Ex-Libris de la Bibliothèque du Château de Cruzol. +++++++ Nouvelle édition de 1754 comprenant 770 lettres de Madame de Sévigné à sa fille, donc plus complète que les premières éditions autorisées par la petite-fille de la Marquise de Sévigné. Pour rappel, la toute première édition en 2 volumes, et non autorisée, fut publiée en 1726 et ne comptait que 134 lettres. Ce ne fut qu'en 1734 que Pauline de Grignan, marquise de Simiane, petite-fille de la célèbre marquise, remit les lettres manuscrites qu'elle possédait à Perrin, un éditeur d'Aix en Provence, avec le soin de leur publication. Ce dernier publia 402 lettres en 1734 et 212 lettres en 1737 (soit 614 au total). En fait lors de ces deux publications, il ne fut retenu que les lettres à la Comtesse de Grignan, et après une sélection, les manuscrits furent détruits. L'édition de 1754 augmentée que nous présentons dans notre offre contient justement des lettres à d'autres personnages, portant le nombre de lettres à 770 - Reliures en bon état, à noter un coin émoussé sur les tomes 2 et 5, petit manque du papier de garde sur le tome 8 (suite décollage de la page de garde fixée par étiquette d'Ex-Libris), intérieur frais, Bel exemplaire..

        Autograph letter to M. Cabanis, 4pp. folio, discussing the type of knife to be used in a cancer operation

      Paris, 1754. <p>Louis, Antoine (1723-92). Autograph draft (probably incomplete) of a letter to Pierre Jean Georges Cabanis (1757-1808). 4pp. N.p., May 18, 1754. 260 x 186 mm. Creased where previously folded, some browning, tiny hole in first leaf not affecting text, otherwise very good. English translation included.</p><p> From the pioneer French medical jurisprudence authority (see G-M 1730-31) to a medical colleague, discussing the type and size of cutting instrument appropriate for removal of a cancerous tumor in the breast. Cabanis had been involved in a dispute over whether a smaller instrument, such as a lancet, was preferable to the razor recommended by several authorities for such an operation. The Royal Academy of Surgery had asked Louis to give his opinion on this matter, which he did in the present draft. Louis took Cabanis&#39;s side in preferring the smaller instrument, citing the writings of Delahaye, Garangeot and Fayet to back his judgment, while noting the opposing opinions of LeDran and Dionis.</p><p> "When one tries to understand the reasons and the different procedures expounded in the different methods of operating, one sees that the razor and the large knife are recommended only for cutting off the breast with one blow. . . .And if you have the memoirs of the Royal Academy of Surgery, vol. 1, page 681 in the quarto edition, you will read a memoir of M. Fayet of a tumor of the breast, you will see that one must have one&#39;s fingers in the incision made and the circumference of the tumor in order to judge the depth, the hardness and the way it is attached, in order to detach the tumor more easily. Since the removal of a cancer is a dissection, where each step is based on what one must do after it and it is the only was to precisely remove the whole body of the tumor, then how can one do this dissection with a large knife which will only serve to cut out, if I dare to speak this way, the cancer with one cut." </p>

        Dell'antica lira ferrarese di Marchesini detta volgarmente Marchesana. Dissertazione.

      Presso Bernardino Pomatelli,, in Ferrara, 1754 - In-4° (287x210mm), pp. IX, 208, legatura ottocentesca m. pelle marrone con dorso a 4 nervi decorati in oro con titolo in oro e filetti a freddo entro scomparti. Sguardie rosa. Frontespizio in rosso e in nero. Dedica a stampa al Conte Bartolomeo Masi e ai signori Savj del Maestrato di Ferrara. 84 xilografie di monete n.t. Testatine e capilettera incisi ornati o istoriati. Un timbro di possesso ottocentesco. Ottimo esemplare. Prima e unica edizione. Vincenzo Bellini (Giambulaga, Ferrara, 1708-ivi, 1783) fu parroco di Cassana, presso Bologna, dal 1737 al 1758, nonché illustre cultore di studi numismatici, storico, linguista e proprietario del fondo originario di monete ed antichità che costituì poi il nucleo del futuro Museo Civico di Ferrara. Si tratta d'un notevole esempio di "descrizione storica" d'una moneta ideale condotta, con acume e con diligenza, attraverso le vicende della sua circolazione, anche se una volta soltanto il suo vero valore è calcolato sul reale valore delle merci. Ogni documento pur minimamente utilizzabile viene attentamente esaminato in ogni sua parte; mentre le notizie di storia, invece che per delineare il quadro economico e politico in cui iscrivere le monete, sono riferite piuttosto per non procurar "tanto tedio" al letore." (Nicola Parise in D.B.I., VII, pp. 716-718). Ranghiasci, F/18: "È questa una dissertazione eruditissima nella quale si correggono il conte Carli circa il giusto valore della Lira de Marchesini ed il Muratori In somma la dissertaz. oltre ad essere arricchita di moltissime medaglie, è piena d&#146;importanti annotazioni riguardanti la storia civile di Ferrara Opera tanto in credito de&#146; dotti, tanto divenuta rara". Lozzi. 1620: "Opera di numismatica molto importante per le ricerche storiche delle prime origini del batter moneta in Ferrara". Catalogo Einaudi, n. 390. Bassoli, cit. Parise, cit.

        Essai sur les Troubles Actuels de Perse, et de Géorgie

      Paris, Desaint & Saillant, , 1754. Par M. de P***. 12mo. (169 × 102mm) Contemporary mottled calf, red morocco label, French fillet gilt to the boards, spine gilt with foliate volutes, indistinct arms to the tail, red edges. Small book-ticket of the geographer, translator, author and bibliophile Jean-Baptiste Eyriès (1767-1846) to the front pastedown. Two folding tables, engraved head- and tailpieces. Lightly browned, slightly rubbed at the extremities, one folding table cropped at the head, upper joint a little cracked at the head, but overall a very good copy, half title bound in. First Edition. "Attribué à de Peyssonel père, qui peut en avoir fourni les matériaux, mais la rédaction semble appartenir au fils." The elder Peyssonel held a number of consular positions in the Near East, being for some years at Smyrna and in 1753 in the Crimea, his son served in a similar capacity at Smyrna and was for some time Consul to the Khan of the Tartars. Erekle II, perhaps better known by the Latinized form Heraclius, and his father Teimuraz had been made de facto rulers of Georgia - Erekle of Kakheti, Teimuraz of Kartli - for their suppression of Abdulla Beg&#39;s 1745 Mukhranian coup against Persian rule. However, they still paid heavy tributes to Nadir Shah and when he was assassinated in 1747 they took advantage of the political instability in Persia to eject the occupying garrisons. In the years that followed they suppressed a further rising by the Mukhranians, concluded an anti-Persian alliance with the khans of Azerbaijan, and made overtures to the Russians for their support for an invasion of Persia. On Teimuraz&#39;s death in 1762, Erekle succeeded him in Kartli, uniting politically for the first time in 300 years. Uncommon, OCLC shows just four copies in the USA, only three on COPAC.

        The Dignity of Human Nature. Or, A brief Account of the certain and established Means for attaining the true End of our Existence. In Four Books. Of Prudence. II. Of Knowledge. III. Of Virtue. IV. Of Revealed Religion.

      London Printed by W. B. and sold by J. and P. Knapton. 1754 - FIRST EDITION. 4to, 233 x 178 mms., pp. xxii [xxii blank, xxiv Errata], 430, contemporary calf, falling to bits, with rear cover detached, front cover attached from earlier reback, corners worn, spine chipped, but a very good provenance: Formerly the copy of the British artist Sir Stanley Spenser (1891 - 1959), inscribed on the front paste-down "Ex libris G R Carline, F.R.A.I. F.R.G.S. given to Stanley Spencer 1933 [after death of G R C] then on Stanley S's death 1959 to Richard Carline" ; it might seem from this that Spencer inherited the book from his first father-in-law, but it is also possible that this G R Carline was, in fact, his brother in law, and that the book later passed down to another brother in law, Richard, who was a fellow artist; whatever, this is an interesting association copy of the "Downshire Hill" set. On the top margin of the title-page is the autograph and date of an earlier owner: "Mary Bethia Horton 1777." Mary Bethia Scott (1705 - 1781) married Sir Joshua Horton. The copy of the book is not itself in wonderful condition, but I would be reluctant to destroy the integrity of the provenance by having the binding restored. James Burgh(1714-1775), educational theorist and author, was "Master of an Academy at Newington-Green, Middlesex," according to the title-page. His wife Hannah was friend of Mary Wollstonecraft and helped her to open a school at Newington Green in 1783. The book is a curious mixture of testy self-righteousness and priggishness on one hand and sensible suggestions and practical advice on the other. Citing the best English poets, Burgh names Spenser, Milton, Shakespeare, Waller, Rowe, Addison, and Pope, and then adds, "it is to the disgrace of our country and religion, that such stuff as the greatest parts of the works of a Dryden, or a Congreve, and such like, should be in print." Later, he would gladden the hearts of many modern educational theorists when he says, "As to making Latin or Greek themes or verses, I would as soon have a son of mine taught to dance on a rope."

        A Collection of Select Cases Relating to Evidence

      London - Henry Lintot, for Daniel Brown 1754 - Theextremely scarce pirated edition of Sir John Strange's case notes, published before the also extremely scarce official edition. Bound in leather with raised bands and blindstamped decoration. Wth a manuscript title page. Reputed to have been compiled by Sir John Strange -ESTC, #T20913. Sir John Strange, d. 1754, was a judge. Before his death Strange had been preparing his collection of reports for publication. Because of his willingness to lend his notes to judges there had been many opportunities for copies of this material, unscrupulously obtained, to pass into the hands of legal hacks. It included summaries and arguments of cases where no judgment had been made. It was Strange's chief concern, therefore, to have ready a definitive compilation of reports of adjudged cases that could be published in the event of any pirating of his work. Accordingly, when some of Strange's case notes did indeed appear shortly after his death under the title of A Collection of Select Cases Relating to Evidence, by a Late Barrister-at-Law, his executors acted swiftly to suppress it -ODNB. Condition: The textblock binding is tight and firm. The hignes are slightly cracked. There is some wear to the extremities, including some bumping and rubbing with discoloured marks. Internally the pages have some slight browning and intermittent spots or marks. Overall the condition is very good. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
