        The Microscope Made Easy. The fifth edition: with an additional Plate of the Solar Microscope, and some farther Accounts of the Polype.

      London:: Printed for J. Dodsley, 1769., 1769. 8vo. xvi, 324 pp. 15 engraved plates (1 is unnumbered, facing p.22), folding table (p.36), index; some offsetting of plates, occasional foxing. Modern full speckled calf, raised bands, gilt-stamped red spine label, new endleaves. Bookplates of William Strong ["Fortis et Fidelis"] and Alfred M. Hellman, M.D. Fifth edition, with additions (see title) of this extremely popular work which went into a number of editions. The first edition was issued in 1742, and was full of material that the author "compiled, abstracted and copied everything available about the instrument, even Leeuwenhoek's plates found in the archives of the Society" [Ratcliff, p.80], this edition includes the discovery of the polyp. Even so, no one had studied Leeuwenhoek's instruments that were considered so valuable for his own pioneering and systematic research, until Baker took the task up some 20 years later - those instruments having been donated in 1723 on Leeuwenhoek's death. Arranged in two parts, the first dealing with various types of microscopes, their employment and adjustment, including the instruments of Wilson, Leeuwenhoek, Culpepper, Scarlett, Cuff, and Lieberkühn. The second part is devoted to the examination of natural specimens established by and similar to Hooke's Micrographia. This work and the author's Employment of the Microscope, contain the bulk of his more important communications to the Royal Society. Ratcliff offers more insight to the relationship Baker had with the various persons involved with instrument making, including Cuff and Lieberkühn. Some description of the distribution and translations of the edition are also mentioned. Ratcliffe also writes, "With, The Microscope Made Easy, Baker achieved an important place as microscopical observer in the Society..." (p.180). See: Dr. Marc J Ratcliff, The Quest for the Invisible: Microscopy in the Enlightenment, (2013), page 268. PROVENANCE: William Strong ["Fortis et Fidelis"], D.D., Canon and 45 years Archdeacon of Northampton (1842-1886); Alfred Myer Hellman, M.D. (1880-1955), took his medical degree at Columbia University, worked in New York, was a very well-known obstetrician. He was also an "avid" collector of medical books, represented by his bibliographical work: A collection of early obstetrical books; an historical essay with bibliographical descriptions of 37 items, including 25 editions of Roesslin's Rosengarten, 1952. See: Walter Debenham Sweeting, The New Guide to Peterborough Cathedral Comprising a Brief History of the Monastery..., (1893), p. 37.

      Opusculorum Mathematici et Medici Argumenti, Pars I + II (von III). Hrsg. v. Heinrich August Wrisberg. - Goettingae: Apud Victorin. Bossiegel, 1769, Kl.4, (10), 196 (6), 242 pp., 9 Kupferstichtafeln, 2 Pappbände der Zeit minimal fleckig. Klassiker der Biomechanik - Sehr seltene erste und einzige Ausgabe ! "In dieser Periode treten - wesentlich beeinflusst durch die Leistungen der Italiener - zum ersten Male deutsche Gelehrte als Förderer der Ohranatomie auf. Unter den zahlreichen Bearbeitern dieses Spezialgebietes ragen besonders Cassebohm, Brendel, Zinn und Meckel hervor. Auch in der Ohrphysiologie wurde ein bedeutender Fortschritt angebahnt, wozu die akustischen Arbeiten der zeitgenössischen deutschen Physiker wesentlich beitrugen". Johann Gottfried Brendel, " erwarb sich abgesehen von seinen otologischen Arbeiten auch auf dem Gebiete der gerichtlichen Medizin besondere Verdienste.In seiner Schrift "Progr. de auditu in apice Cochleae", Göttingingen 1747, beschrieb er eingehend das Spiralblatt, die Spindel und den Spindelkanal der Schnecke, sowie den Verlauf des Nerven in der Schnecke. Seiner Ansicht nach tritt ein Zweig des Schneckennerven, der durch den Spindelkanal zieht, aus kleinen Löchern am blinden Ende desselben in den Vieussensschen Becher, um sich in dessen Spitze auszubreiten. An der Spindel unterschied Brendel eine äußere härtere und glattere Rinde und einen inneren weicheren Teil, der den Zentralkanal umschließt. Ein sprechendes Zeugnis für die Gründlichkeit seiner Untersuchungen bildet die Auffindung der Kommunikationsstelle beider Treppen in einer kleinen Oeffnung des Bechers. Eigentümlicher weise verlegt er den Ort des Hörens in die Schneckenspitze, weil er die Beobachtung gemacht haben wollte, daß der Hörnerv nach Passierung des Spindelkanals sich an der Schneckenspitze in Fasern auflöst hier sollen nun nach seiner irrigen Auffassung die Schallwellen wie in einem Brennpunkte zur Vereinigung gelangen (Senac)." Politzer, Geschichte der Ohrenheilkunde.Johann Gottfried Brendel (* 23. Februar 1711 in Wittenberg ? 17. Januar 1758 in Göttingen) als Sohn des Wittenberger Medizinprofessors Adam Brendel und seiner Frau Christina Henrietta von Berger geboren, wurde Johann Gottfried am 27. Februar 1711 getauft. Alsbald erkannte man in dem Jungen eine hohe Auffassungsgabe, so dass man ihn 1724 auf die Fürstenschule nach Grimma schickte. Zurückgekehrt nach Wittenberg begann er ein Studium der Philosophie, an der Universität" Leucorea" Wittenberg. Am 30. April 1734 erwarb er sich den Magistertitel der Philosophie und absolvierte dann ein medizinisches Studium. Am 19. November 1736 promovierte er zum Lizentiaten und Doktor der Medizin, habilitierte sich an der Universität Göttingen, wo er 1738 zum außerordentlichen Professor und 1739 zum ordentlichen Professor ernannt wurde, wurde später Hallers Nachfolger in der Chirurgie und 1755 wurde er Leibarzt des Landgrafen Wilhelm VIII. von Hessen-Kassel. Seine gründliche mathematische Vorbildung ist entscheidend geworden für seine Entwicklung als einer der großen medizinischen Gelehrten seiner Zeit. Als Jatrophysiker, der biologische und pathologische Phänomene rein physikalisch zu deuten versuchte, beschäftigte er sich unter anderem mit rechtsmedizinischen Studien. Mit Untersuchungen zur Eustachischen Klappe und über das Spiralblatt der Schnecke, hat er sich einen Namen in der Medizingeschichte erworben. Auch nach seinem Tode wurde ein Teil seiner Arbeiten veröffentlicht.CONSPECTVS PROGRAMMATUM.

The document enumerates the members of the jury - first men of Windham, and then several men, including Knowlton, "...all of Ashford, as a jury to lay out the within mentioned highway." Much of the document is taken up with the physical details of the highway, but concludes that the jury has determined "...that the Advantage, to each Man's Land (through which this High Way is laid out) is equal to the Disadvantage, therefore assess no Damages." Following the text, Signed by all in the Jury, ending with Knowlton. Although not directly related to the coming War, among the other signers of this document are Sampson Keyes, whose son John served in the Knowlton Rangers as a Lieutenant; Nathaniel Webb, who served as an Lieutenant under Knowlton in Durkee's Regiment (before the Rangers were detached from it); Hezikiah Huntington, who made and repaired firearms for the American troops, and others easily traceable to the Revolutionary cause.Knowlton was a veteran of the French and Indian War who participated in several battles including the Battle of Ft. Ticonderoga and the British invasion of Havana, and who resided in Ashford in Windham County, where he was named a Selectman of the town in 1773. When news of Lexington reached Knowlton he joined his local militia, the Ashford Company, as part of the Fifth Regiment Connecticut Militia. Knowlton was unanimously chosen as Captain. For his bravery at the Battle of Bunker Hill he was promoted by Congress to Major.During the Siege of Boston in 1776, Knowlton was sent by Washington to burn the remaining buildings at the base of Bunker Hill, and to capture the British guard. Knowlton accomplished this mission without firing a shot or losing a man. In August, Knowlton was promoted to Lieutenant Colonel and put in command of an elite hand picked independent corps which was under the direct command of Washington. This unit was the first unit to be designated as "Rangers", or "Knowlton's Rangers." Among the members of the unit was Captain Nathan Hale. This was considered the first organized American intelligence unit and was utilized by Washington to scout the enemy's position in dangerous circumstances. Knowlton is generally considered the first American intelligence officer. The date "1776" on the modern U.S. Army's intelligence service seal refers to the formation of Knowlton's Rangers.On September 16, 1776 Knowlton's Rangers were scouting in advance of the main army at Harlem Heights, New York when a skirmish began which ended with Knowlton being mortally wounded, by all accounts bravely leading the Rangers. He was lamented by Washington in his general orders for September 17, 1776 with the statement "The gallant and brave Col Knowlton, ... would have been an Honor to any Country, having fallen yesterday, while gloriously fighting ..."In 1995 the Military Intelligence Corps Association established the Thomas W. Knowlton Award recognizing individuals who have contributed significantly to the promotion of Army Military Intelligence in ways that stand out in the eyes of the recipients, their superiors, subordinates and peers.Knowlton's signature is rare. We could find none at auction, and none in the trade.

Con las Conducentes Instrucciones Para el Mejor Regimen de los Cirujanos de Navios; Que Hacen Viage a la America, Especialmente Para los de la Real Compania Guipuzcoana de Caracas, a fin de que con Mayor Acierto se Conduzcan, asi en el Methodo Curativo de los Enfermos, Como en el Manejo de los Botiquines de su Cargo. - Su Autor El Doctor D. Vicente de Lardizabal, Medico de la Ciudad de San Sebastian. Quien las Dedica a la Direccion de la Misma Real Compania". Contents in three parts. Contains several short sections, with sub-titles including Consideraciones generales sobre las enfermedades de Marina; Purification del Ayre; Sobre el Agua; Sobre las enfermedades ordinarias; Medios para ocurrir a ellas; De los Accidos vegetables; Instruccion para que los Cirujanos de la Real Compania de Caracas sepan ocurrir a los casos repentinos; Del Syncope; De la Hemorragia; De la Diarrhea; De la Disenteria; Del Delirio, De la Convuslion, De la Pharmacia; Inutilidad de los Jaraves; De los Remedios Chymicos; De la Mixtion; De las Infusiones, De los Cocimientos; De las Emulsiones, etc. NO ILLUSTRATIONS. Author "Vicente Dubois Lardizabal (1746-1814) was a Spanish doctor who was born & died in San Sebastian. It is unknown where he studied medicine, however his youthful education allowed him to meet with Latin & French sufficiency, & throughout his life used the title of Doctor of Medicine. He began to practice in his hometown before 1769. In 1772 he became a doctor in the Real Compania Guipuzcoana de Caracas (The Royal Guipuzcoan Company of Caracas), but he never embarked. His first published work was Consideraciones Politico-Medicas Sobre la Salud de los Navegantes (1769). It was intended for sugeons who were shipped, & relies on a combination of the doctrines of Hermann Boerhaave & Andres Piquer, with the experience provided by physicians such as James Lind, Louis Rouppe, & Richard Mead, who was especially proficient in naval medicine. Three problems of health aboard ships concerned Lardizabal: ventilation (the proposed solutions show a good understanding of the physics of gases), the preservation of drinking water, & the abuse of drugs, especially purgatives."

        Friendship album of the travelling student Mihály Pap, containing entries by Johann II. Bernoulli and Daniel Bernoulli, Johann Jakob Breitinger, Mattli Conradi, Petrus Curtenius, Johann Jakob Gessner and Johann Rudolph Stähelin.

      Various places, 1765-1769. - Oblong 8vo. 85 ff. (partly written on both sides). No binding. This friendship album kept by the travelling student Mihály Pap contains mainly Latin, Greek, Hebrew, and German entries, beginning in 1765 with numerous contributions from Swiss cities (Bern, Lausanne, Zurich); in the later 1760s, he collects entries mainly from German cities (Worms, Regensburg, Nuremberg, Marburg, Duisburg, etc.) as well as from London and Oxford. Somewhat curiously, although the album contains several entries from Göttingen, there is no contribution by the historian August Ludwig von Schlözer, the unrivalled star teacher for the many Hungarian exiles educated at the Georg August University. - Somewhat browned and wrinkled; some pages with slight edge defects.

Oxidationsschatten durch beigelegtes Blatt eines Kataloges, St. a. V., Ebd. berieben u. fleckig, hds. Notiz des Autoren a. T., leicht fleckig, angestaubt, leichte Gbrsp. - Rétif de la Bretonne, [auch Restif de la Bretonne] (1734 - 1806), wurde 1734 in Sacy bei Auxerre als Sohn eines wohlhabenen Bauern geboren. Rétif de la Bretonne war seit seinem 15. Lebensjahr gelernter Drucker und wurde Autor von etwa 200 Büchern, die zum Teil noch nicht wissenschaftlich ausgewertet worden sind. Er verfasste Sittenromane und Sozialutopien und schrieb zuletzt, um Zeit zu sparen, direkt in den Setzkasten. Rétif de la Bretonne gilt oft als bloßer Pornograf. Tatsächlich hat er aber eine Ergänzung zu Sade`s Bild der Aristokratie in seinen freizügigen Schilderungen der niederen Stände geliefert. De Sade war ein Kontrahent Rétifs. Seine sexuelle Fixierung auf Schuhe, geschildert in dem Roman „Le Pied de Fanchette“, führte zu der Bezeichnung Retifismus für diese Art von Fetischismus. Zu seinen skurrilsten Einfällen gehört die Idee, per Gesetz die Verheiratung aller 16-jährigen Männer mit 32-jährigen Frauen zu gebieten. Nach 16 Jahren sollten diese Ehen automatisch geschieden werden, um dann wiederum eine jüngere zu heiraten. Vergleichbare Ideen hat auch Arthur Schopenhauer geäußert. Als Schilderer der Sitten der französischen Revolutionszeit hat ihn Iwan Bloch gewürdigt. Retif konnte sich rühmen jenseits des Rheins der meistgelesene (französische) Autor zu sein.
