        Recherches sur le tissu muqueux, ou l'organe cellulaire, et sur quelques maladies de la potrine. On y joint une Dissertation du même Auteur, sur l'usage des Eau de Baréges, dans les Ecrouelles.

      Paris , Chez Pierre Franc. Didot et Jeune, 1767, 8, (6), X, (2), 227, (1) pp., feiner Ledereinband der Zeit Rücken erneuert. First Edition!Considered one of the most important works in the history of cell theory, Bordeu "described connective tissue - under the name mucous tissue - showing its role in exchanges, the phenomena of nutrition, and the mechanical equilibrium of organs and tissues".Théophile de Bordeu (1722-1776) was one of the more important French physicians of the 18th century, "the founder of the Vitalistic School of Montpellier", "founder of modern hydrotherapy", "Father of Endocrinology" he first conceived the idea of internal secretion by his hypothesis that every organ, tissue, and cell discharges into the blood products which influence other parts of the body."The son and grandson of Bérnese physicians, Bordeu studied medicine in Montpellier, where he received his medical degree on 10 November 1743. He returned to Montpellier for further study in 1745 and in 1746 went to Paris, where he devoted his time particularly to the clinical examination of patients at La Charité hospital. He returned to Béarn, to Pau, in the posts of intendant and superintendent of the mineral waters of Aquitaine, drawing attention to their therapeutic value through a newspaper that he founded. His reputation led to his appointment as a corresponding member of the Royal Academy of Sciences of Paris in 1847.In 1752 Bordeu went again to Paris, with the intention of practicing medicine, but he had to observe the regulation that only graduates of the Paris Faculty of Medicine could practice in the Capital. He renewed his studies and was again graduated M.D. on 7 October 1754. At this time he became an attending physician at La Charité. Very soon he attracted a large practice, which aroused jealousy. As the result of a conspiracy organized by Michel-Philippe Bouvart, his name was removed from the list of Paris physicians in 1761, an act that had the effect of preventing him from practicing. Bordeu defended himself vigorously and was reinstated in 1764. His success with patients continued, and he cared for many important persons, among them Madame Du Barry.The part that Bordeu played in the history of thermalism has caused him to be considered the founder of modern hydrotherapy. It was through him that the baths of the Pyrenees became known throughout the south of France and even in Paris. His 'Journal de Barèges' and his 'Recherches sur les maladies chroniques' (1775) are among his most important contributions to this field.Bordeu also studied anatomy. In 1747 he published 'Recherches anatomiques sur les articulations des os de la face', which won him membership in the Academy of Sciences. He had already written a treatise on the formation of chyle, 'Chylificationis historia' (1742), that foreshadowed his important work on the glands, 'Recherches anatomiques sur les differentes positions des glandes et sur leur action' (1752). In the latter he announced the double innervation (trophic and functional) of glands and Organs, thus proving the existence of secretory nerves. He offered in evidence a local increase in the circulation when a gland is in action and, while emphasizing the influence of the imagination, showed that excretion is due to the gland itself and not the surrounding muscles. This shows the importance of Bordeu as a precursor in the Science that in the twentieth Century came to be distinguished as endocrinology. Finally, he demonstrated that secretion is the active elaboration of a new product separate from the constituents of the blood. Bordeu completed this sequence with his famous 'Recherches sur le tissu muqueux' (1767), in which he described connective tissue-under the name of mucous tissue-showing its role in exchanges, the phenomena of nutrition, and the mechanical equilibrium of Organs and tissues.Semeiology also interested Bordeu. His 'Recherches sur les crises' appeared in Didcrot's Encyclopédie, as did his 'Recherches sur le pouls par rapport aux crises'. Both mark him as a clinician of the first Order who knew how to obtain a large number of diagnostic and prognostic facts from an examination. Since Bordeu, physicians take the pulse by applying the tips of the four fingers to the hollow of the radius.Bordeu played a great role in the history of medical theories. His thesis at Montpellier, 'De sensu generice considerato' ("On the Senses, Considered Generically," 1742), suggested the direction in which he was heading. His other works demonstrated that he considered each organ as having its own life and believed that life was the sum of all these "little fives" of the organs. Coordination among them was due to the mucous tissues. The organs and glands were set in motion by an irritation termed "sensibility." These ideas opened the way for vitalism, a doctrine of which the school of Montpellier became the champion." Louis Dulieu, DSB II, pp.301-302Garrison, Hist. 263/64 (with portrait). Wellcome II, 204.

Buijnsters (Spec) 95 en 99 Reiber, Anatomie eines Bestsellers. Johann August Unzers Wochenschrift 'Der Arzt' (1759-1764) (Göttingen 1999)"."De uitgave van 'Der Arzt: eine medicinische Wochenschrift' maakte de Duitse arts en geleerde Johann August Unzer (1727-1799) tot een van de beroemdste medici van de achttiende eeuw. Hij wist allerlei medische onderwerpen toegankelijk te maken voor de ontwikkelde burger, en toonde zich daarbij bovendien een uitstekend schrijver; mannen als Goethe en Jean Paul prezen de literaire kwaliteit van zijn werk. Herhaaldelijk heeft hij zich in zijn tijdschrift beziggehouden met hypochondrie, dé modeziekte van de sentimentele achttiende eeuw.In het voorwoord bij de eerste aflevering zet Unzer zijn bedoeling uiteen. Hij wil zijn lezers tot een gezonde levenswijze brengen, zodat ze geen dokter nodig hebben en, mocht dat onverhoopt toch het geval zijn, in ieder geval kwakzalvers mijden, die onze beurs, ons lighaam, ons leven ondermynen. Later ging hij er ook toe over geneezingen van ziekten, welke veel voorkoomen, op een' ligt verstaanbaaren trant te beschryven, zoals hij schrijft in het Afscheid van den Artz van zyne Lezers in het 250ste en laatste vertoog, dat ook een uitgebreid register op de twaalf delen bevat.'Der Arzt' verscheen van 1759 tot 1764; in 1769 volgde een tweede herziene uitgave. De Nederlandse vertaling verscheen van 1765 tot 1771 bij (de Wed.) K. van Tongerlo. De hier aangeboden uitgave uit 1771 is daarvan deels een herdruk, deels (de delen 7-11) een titeluitgave. De buitengemeene sterke aftrek die de 'Artz of Geneesheer' ook in Nederland had, bracht de uitgever er toe in een 'Naleezing' van vier delen alle aanvankelijk weggelaten vertogen alsnog te publiceren."

        The English Works. With notes and observations, and the author's life. By James Bennet.

      London: Printed for T. Davies and J. Dodsley, [1767] - Quarto (283 x 217 mm). Contemporary mottled calf (sometime skilfully repaired at front joint, head of spine and head of lower joint), richly gilt spine with pomegranate device and scrolling floriate motifs, red morocco twin labels, single line gilt border on sides, gilt roll tool turn-ins, yellow edges, marbled endpapers. A little wear to corners, minor paper flaw at fore-edge of title page. A very good copy. Attractive rococo head-piece to dedication (with arms of Earl of Shaftesbury), engraved by F. Garden. First collected and first Johnson edition, second issue: "this issue is distinguished by the new half-title and undated title, and by the absence of the single leaf of 'Additional Subscribers'; in all other respects it comprises the sheets from the first issue of 1761" (Fleeman). With the 4-page list of subscribers, to whom the book was originally issued in January 1762. The dedication "To Anthony Ashley Cooper, Earl of Shaftesbury," and the "Life of Roger Ascham" were written by Samuel Johnson. "Tom Davis stated that Johnson was 'in reality' the editor, and that he (Johnson) gave the work to Bennet for his advantage" (Courtney). Bennet was a "distressed schoolmaster" of a boarding school at Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire. Roger Ascham (1514/15-1568) was appointed tutor to Princess Elizabeth in 1548, Latin Secretary to Queen Mary in 1553 and private tutor to Queen Elizabeth in 1558. This collected edition gathers together three works: Toxophilus (1545), The Scholemaster (1570) and the Report of the Affairs of Germany (1552); the "Letters to Queen Elizabeth and others" are described as "now first published from the Manuscripts". This would appear to be the first printing of Toxophilus outside of the editions of the 16th century. A very attractive period binding with an intriguing and enigmatic provenance: the lower spine label carries a small gilt supralibros (which appears to be, in heraldic terms: on a bend three roundels), this has been carefully obliterated by a gilt reticulated pattern. With the Fasque bookplate of the Gladstone family: Fasque was "the Scottish house in the Mearns, in Kincardineshire, bought by [William Ewart Gladstone's] father, where he spent many parliamentary recesses until his father's death in 1851" (ODNB).

        The Universal English Short-Hand; or, the Way of Writing English in the most easy, concise, regular, and beautiful manner, applicable to any other language, but particularly adjusted to our own.

      - Manchester, Joseph Harrop, 1767. 8vo. Contemporary calf, pp. [4], ix, [3]-92, 13 engraved plates (one in pagination), scratching and wear to binding, but cords holding firm, lamp oil spotting to beginning and end; provenance: contemporary engraved armorial bookplate Ben. Slade inside front cover; slightly later Dublin bookdealer's label. First edition of Byrom's popular system of shorthand, which had been in use for a number of years by many prominent figures, including the Wesleys, Horace Walpole, and others. In 1723 at Cambridge young Byrom, from a Manchester family of merchants, developed his own system of shorthand, because he was dissatisfied with the existing ones. 'He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society in March 1724, and contributed two papers on the subject of shorthand to its Philosophical Transactions . For a number of years he spent much time in London, Cambridge, and Oxford, teaching pupils the art of shorthand. They paid 5 guineas, and were sworn to secrecy, becoming members of what Byrom, again perhaps facetiously, called his Societas Tachygraphica (‘Speedwriting Society’). He built up a wide range of acquaintances in the course of promoting his system, until the death of his elder brother on 12 May 1740 put him in possession of the family property and relieved him of the need to teach it. He remained closely associated with it, however: he had printed new Proposals in 1739, and an act of parliament, passed on 5 May 1742, gave him the sole rights to the system for twenty-one years. It was finally made available to all by being published in its entirety in 1767 as The Universal English Short-Hand. [Attributes: First Edition]

Weakly browning in margin otherwise clean and well-preserved copy bound in contemporary halfleather with coloured label and goldlines on spine. Initials and owner-stamp on inner frontboard and free endpaper. O.F. Müller blev i 1753 ansat som huslærer for Grevinde Schulins søn på Frederiksdal, hvor hans interesse for naturfagene blev vagt. Således udgav han i 1764 Fauna Insectorum Fridrichsdalina. 1772 blev han efter Oeder udgiver af Flora Danica."Som iagttager, som nøgtern bedømmer af det sete, uhildet af andres meninger, og med sin evne til at systematisere de mikroskopiske dyr og planter var M. langt forud for sin tid, men i sin almindelige tankegang var han i høj grad et barn af den." (S. L. Tuxen). Pritzel 6536. Christensen II,63,6. Bibl. Dan. II, 190. As tudor in a noble family Fr. O. Müller spent the summers at Frederiksdal Castle, a little to the north of Copenhagen. His educational duties involved his introducing his pupil into the elements of the all-victorious naural science, with the result that his own interest was caught by the study of the living nature; from the year 1758 he began his researches, with the works of Linnaeus as his guide. Müller's second foreign journey took him through Germany, Switzerland, Italy, France and Holland, was of much greater importance to his scientific development. While in Strassburg in 1766 he published his first large botanical work "Flora Fridrichsdalina".

      J. Nourse, 1767. 1st Edition . Hardcover. Very Good. First edition. iv, 44, (2), ii, 3-225, (1), iv, 115, (5)p. 42 fold-out plates, collated complete. Errata and publisher's catalogue to the rear. All three sections, with their individual half titles (for the second and third sections) and pagination, are all part of the same book and were published this way. Rebound in half leather. William Emerson (1701-1782) was a mathematician. "In 1763 Emerson arranged with the publisher John Nourse to write a series of mathematical manuals for young students, which were published in rapid succession. His books were successful, for though Emerson was not a creative mathematician he had a comprehensive grasp of existing knowledge in the various branches of his subject. With the profit from his writing he could settle some debts that burdened his heritage, and spend his life at Hurworth, living as an eccentric. He wrote textbooks on trigonometry, mechanics, arithmetic, geometry, finite differences, algebra, optics, astronomy, geography, and surveying, most of which were best-sellers." - ODNB "The work before us is a continuation of a course of mathematics, with which the ingenious Mr. Emerson proposes to oblige the public, and which every true lover of those sciences must sincerely wish he may accomplish. The neatness and elegance of the solutions and demonstrations in this able mathematician's writings, are very remarkable; an the perspicuity and conciseness with which the whole is delivered, render his works a very valuable acquisition to the republic of science." - The Monthly Review, Or, Literary Journal, Volume 37. "The work before us is divided into three parts. In the first part the arithmetic of infinites, and the differential method of calculation, are treated to elegance and propriety; the second contains the chief properties of the conic-sections, demonstrated in an easy, comprehensive, and concise manner, entirely freed from those analytical investigations with which treatises of this kind are too generally perplexed; and in the third and last part we meet with several new and interesting properties of the most useful mechanical curves, as the concoid, cifoid, cycloid &c. together with a great variety of curious discoveries relating to the doctrine of curve lined geometry. We therefore recommend this work to the perusal of such as would rise above mediocrity in the mathematical sciences, especially as the ingenious author has (in our opinion) treated his subject in such an easy and familiar manner as to be readily understood by the generality of his readers." - The Critical Review, or Annals of Literature, Volume 23. Two neat ink inscriptions opposite the half titles: 'From these principals laid down a door is opened for higher attainment...' and 'Ano. If all these things were found out by the ancients: yet this always will be new, the use, the science and disposition of the inventors from others.' Condition: Very good. Light shelfwear.

From the library of Hargrave Jennings> (1815-1890), the writer and occultist, with his signature dated August 1st, 1879, on upper wrapper, with the note, also in his hand, 'Curious. Nicodemus' Gospel. 1767'. 'The Gospel of Nicodemus, also known as the Acts of Pilate, is an apocryphal gospel claimed to have been derived from an original Hebrew work written by Nicodemus, who appears in the Gospel of John as an associate of Jesus. The title The Gospel of Nicodemus is medieval in origin. The dates of its accreted sections are uncertain, but scholars agree in assigning the resulting work to the middle of the fourth century AD. The section about Pilate is an older text found in the Greek Acts of Peter and Paul and is a purported official document from Pontius Pilate (or composed from reports at the praetorium at Jerusalem) reporting events in Judea to Emperor Tiberius, and referring to the crucifixion of Jesus, as well as his miracles. The oldest sections of the book appear first in Greek. The text contains multiple parts, which are uneven in style and would seem to be by different hands. The Acts of Pilate does not purport to have been written by Pilate (thus is not pseudepigraphical), but does claim to have been derived from the official acts preserved in the praetorium at Jerusalem. The authenticity of the document is unlikely and there is no historical basis that Roman governors wrote reports about non-citizens who were put to death. Most modern scholars view the Acts of Pilate as not authentic and as a Christian composition designed to rebut pagan sources.' [Wikipedia] [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Vingt-Quatre Heures d'une Femme Sensible

      First edition. Author Constance de Salm (1767-1845) was a highly regarded French writer and moral philosopher, and an important member of a circle of leading intellectuals and scientists. Though forgotten for much of the 19th and 20th centuries, she is now the subject of renewed historical interest, providing a window onto the lives and intellectual networks of women in Revolutionary and Napoleonic France. De Salm spent most of her life promoting the equality of women, and her most important work, the poem Épître aux femmes (1797), was a direct attack on the language and social structures that uphold patriarchy, as well as an exhortation to women to liberate themselves. During her career "she used a variety of genres to address issues of importance to women, such as equal access to educational opportunities and to family courts, recognition of intellectual achievement, the infantilization of women and the denigration of their abilities, the cost to women's health of reproduction, and adequately renumerated work for poor, widowed, and single women. In many ways she can be usefully compared to Mary Wollstonecraft..." (Hine, Constance de Salm, Her Influence and Her Circle in the Aftermath of the French Revolution, p. 4). De Salm's friendships with scientists were an important part of her intellectual life. She was close to the astronomer Joseph-Jérome Lalande, who left her his unpublished manuscripts and asked her to write his eulogy. "Not only did she know Lalande well enough to have him entrust her with securing his legacy, but she was acquainted with renowned scientists like the natural philosopher Auguste de Candolle, the botany professor at the Jardin du Roi, Antoine de Jussieu, the naturalist Alexander von Humboldt... all of whom were among her circle of friends and frequented her salon... Her involvement can be used to illustrate the shift from earlier philosophical debates among scientists to the increasing interest on the part of women in scientific culture in the latter part of the eighteenth and the early part of the nineteenth centuries " (Hine pp. 2-3). The present text, Twenty-Four Hours in the Life of a Sensitive Woman, is an epistolary novel exploring the mindset of a woman whose lover may have abandoned her for another. It was praised by her friend, the author Stendhal and is now rare in the first edition. We can locate only one institutional copy, at the British Library. ...ou Une Grande Leçon.

        L'Ordre naturel et essentiel des Sociétés Politiques.

      London: John Nouse, and Paris, de Saint,, 1767. Quarto (255 x 195 mm). Contemporary French mottled calf, triple-rule border in blind to covers, spine ruled and decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco label, marbled endpapers, red edges, green silk ribbon marker. Joints and corners professionally repaired; occasional light spotting; a very good copy. First edition by "the ablest expositor of this [i.e. physiocratic] system" (McCulloch), written following Le Mercier's retirement from Parliament in 1759. Praised by Adam Smith and Diderot amongst others, L'Ordre naturel was, according to Palgrave, considered more highly than L'Esprit des loix by some of Le Mercier's contemporaries. The author argues that there is a natural law of property which is based on the physical order of nature, and which underlies all other laws. Taxation and the use of public revenue by the ruler are both governed by the natural law of property. Schumpeter lists this work as the second text-book of Physiocrat orthodoxy (the first being Mirabeau's Philosophie rurale).

        A Series of Letters, Discovering the Scheme Projected by France, in MDCCLIX. For an Intended Invasion Upon England with Flat-Bottom’d Boats.

      London: for the Author, 1767. 4to. 2 vols, in 1. v, 263; 268 pp. I love this book, and am only offering it for sale because I'm a bookseller. It is a wonderfully odd example of nationalistic paranoia brought to a head by the Seven Years War. In a series of letters and reprinted documents the author proposed to lay bare the designs of the French Court, assisted by Jesuit spies in London, to launch an attack by an army of 50,000 men, sent across the channel in flat bottomed boats. Contemporary calf binding with label. Hinges cracked but holding.

        L'Ordre naturel et essentiel des Sociétés Politiques.

      London: John Nouse, and Paris, de Saint, 1767 - Quarto (255 x 195 mm). Contemporary French mottled calf, triple-rule border in blind to covers, spine ruled and decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco label, marbled endpapers, red edges, green silk ribbon marker. Joints and corners professionally repaired; occasional light spotting; a very good copy. First edition by "the ablest expositor of this [i.e. physiocratic] system" (McCulloch), written following Le Mercier's retirement from Parliament in 1759. Praised by Adam Smith and Diderot amongst others, L'Ordre naturel was, according to Palgrave, considered more highly than L'Esprit des loix by some of Le Mercier's contemporaries. The author argues that there is a natural law of property which is based on the physical order of nature, and which underlies all other laws. Taxation and the use of public revenue by the ruler are both governed by the natural law of property. Schumpeter lists this work as the second text-book of Physiocrat orthodoxy (the first being Mirabeau's Philosophie rurale). Goldsmiths' 10269; Higgs 3979; Kress 6475; Mattioli 1959;l Sraffa 3258. [Attributes: First Edition]
