Hirsch"Gross sind seine Verdienste um die Beckenmessung. Der Zange widmet er ein eingehendes Studium namentlich auch bezüglich der Nachteile der Kompression des Kopfes. Die Wendung auf den Kopf erwähnt er zwar bei einigen seiner Arten der Schieflage, zieht aber in allen Fällen die Wendung auf die Füsse vor. Baudelocque war einer der eifrigsten Gegner des Schamfugenschnittes ebenso hat sein Autorität der künstlichen Frühgeburt für lange Zeit den Eintritt in Frankreich verwehrt. Er hat einen Einfluss von ähnlicher Intensität und Ausdehnung auf die Geburtshilfe - nicht nur auf die französische - ausgeübt, wie sein älterer Landsmann André Levret" Fasbender, Geschichte der Geburtshilfe (1964), pp. 254 ff.).*) Zum Übersetzer: Philipp Friedrich Theodor Meckel (1755-1803) war Prosektor in Straßburg und wurde 1779 Professor der Anatomie und Chirurgie in Halle.

Bible. New Testament. English.) WAKEFIELD (Gilbert)
Printed at the Philanthropic Press and sold by J. Deighton 1791 - pp. [ii], 524; [ii], 372; [iv], xxxii, 232, [2, ads], 8vo, contemorary dark blue morocco, single gilt fillets on sides enclosing an inner frame of a dotted line interspersed with larger dots, spines gilt in compartments and lettered direct, gilt edges, very slight wear, armorial bookplate inside front covers of J.B. Winterbotham, signature clipped from free endpaper in each vol., good. An attractive copy of the first edition of Wakefield's translation. Wakefield had, amidst some controvery, moved from the Warrington Academy to the newly established Hackney one, in 1790, but his appointment there lasted but a year. 'After resigning from Hackney College, Wakefield could no longer support himself as a private tutor, and began publishing at an astonishing rate. His translation of the New Testament was published in 1792 [sic] and went through several editions, including one in Cambridge, Massachusetts' (ODNB). As evidence of an already 'astonishing rate' the advertisements at the end list 17 publications by Wakefield available from Deighton's, including An Enquiry into the Expediency and Propriety of Public or Social Worship, 'This day published.' A pencil note on the recto of the rear free endpaper records a cost, noting 'all fine paper', and, perhaps, a note of the cost of binding (these costs in code), the total being £1/5/-.

Intéressant plaidoyer rédigé par Mr. Marey Nicolas-Joseph en faveur du capitaine corsaire Thurot; afin que les français sachent en premier lieu les origines de sa naissance (on le pensait irlandais et de très bonne famille) et surtout pour réhabiliter son honneur. Nicolas-Joseph Marey (1760 à Nuits - 1818 à Pommard) était un négociant et homme politique français du XVIII siècle. l fut député de la Côte-d'Or en tant que suppléant à l'Assemblée législative et à la Convention Nationale. Il était en Norvège, lorsqu'il fut rappelé par le vœu de ses compatriotes durant le procès du Roi Louis XVI où il se fit remarquer par sa modération. De la même ville que la famille du Capitaine, sa femme étant la marraine du petit Thurot, ils signeront ensemble le certificat de Baptême qu'il a joint aux pièces justificatives. Son respect de la justice, ne peut que nous certifier de la véracité des faits rapportés dans son livre. François Thurot (22 juillet 1727 à Nuits-Saint-Georges – 28 février 1760 ile de Man) était un corsaire français. Fils de maître de poste, il fait de brèves études de chirurgie, puis s’embarque comme chirurgien sur un corsaire. Fait prisonnier par les Anglais, il réussit à s’échapper. Il devient pilote puis capitaine d’un navire de commerce.

Priestley, Joseph
1791. Priestley Welcomes the French Revolution Priestley, Joseph [1733-1804]. Letters to the Right Honourable Edmund Burke, Occasioned by His Reflections on the Revolution in France, &c. Birmingham: Printed by Thomas Pearson; And Sold by J. Johnson, St. Paul's Church-Yard, London, 1791. xiii, [3], 155, [1] pp. With a one-page catalogue of Priestley's writings. Octavo (8-1/4" x 5").

Some toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, light soiling to tile page, tick marks in early hand in a few places. $250. * Second edition, published the same year as the first. Priestley's Letters criticized Burke's condemnation of the French Revolution. His enthusiasm for the Revolution "convinced many people that he was a revolutionary, bent on destruction of church and crown. Untrue though these suspicions were they encouraged members of the Birmingham establishment to acquiesce, at least, in those acts of mob violence variously known as the Birmingham, church and king, or Priestley riots of 1791. The immediate excuse for the riots was a dinner in celebration of Bastille day, held by the Constitutional Society of Birmingham, a dinner which Priestley did not attend though he had assisted in the organization of the society. (...) Damage was extensive: Old and New Meeting houses and seven residences were destroyed, other houses were wrecked. Priestley's house, his library, laboratory, and papers were ruined and his life was saved only because he had fled. English authorities generally approved of the riots, but they we … [Click Below for Full Description]

Mackintosh, Sir James
1791. An Important Defense of English Supporters of the French Revolution Mackintosh, Sir James [1765-1832]. Vindiciae Gallicae: Defence of the French Revolution and Its English Admirers, Against the Accusations of the Right Hon. Edmund Burke; Including Some Strictures on the Late Productions of Mons. de Calonne. London: Printed for G.G.J. And J. Robinson, 1791. [iv], 351, [1] pp Octavo (8" x 5"). Recent marbled boards, calf lettering piece to spine, endpapers renewed. Moderate toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, light soiling to tile page, small chip to its lower corner. $250. * Second edition, published the same year as the first edition. A reply to Burke's Reflections on the Revolution in France (1791) by the great Scottish jurist, Whig politician and historian. Three editions were speedily sold, and the publisher liberally gave Mackintosh 'several times' the sum of ?30, originally stipulated. Burke had been answered with much power by Thomas Paine. Mackintosh's reply, however, taking a less radical ground, and showing much literary and philosophical culture, was the most effective defense of the position of the Whig sympathizers with the revolution. It was partly translated into French by the Duke of Orleans" (DNB). A fourth edition was published in 1792. Dublin and Philadelphia issues, both without edition statements, were published in 1791 and 1792, respectively. Dictionary of National Biography XII:618. English Short-Title Catalogue T50908.
