      1793. In 8. Dim. 21,5x14 cm. Pp. 74+LXXX. Rarissima edizione princeps dell'opera antirivoluzionaria dedicata alla morte di Ugo Bassville scritta da Vincenzo Monti (1754-1828). Ugo Bassville si recò a Roma con l'incarico di negoziare la riapertura delle relazioni diplomatiche fra la corte pontificia e il governo rivoluzionario di Parigi ma sfortunatamente durante il tragitto venne assalito dal popolo romano e ferito mortalmente a sassate. Monti decise di scrivere quest'opera per giustificare in qualche modo l'accaduto: immagina che l'anima del morto condanni gli orrori della Rivoluzione Francese. L'opera venne pubblicata per la prima volta totalmente anonima nel 1793 a fascicoli che uscirono in periodi differenti, lo stesso anno venne pubblicata la seconda edizione Romana e una lombarda. Presenti dati editoriali a pag. XXXVI (Roma, presso Luigi Perego Salvioni). Questa copia è del tutto identica alla editio princeps, solamente risultano mancanti quattro pagine non numerate che fungevano da occhietto ai canti dell'opera (es. canto terzo "gli altri di daranno in appresso"), carte che potevano sembrare insignificanti dal punto di vista editoriale e probabilmente gettate via dal vecchio proprietario. E' presente anche la seconda strofa a pag. 23, versi mancanti nella seconda edizione romana (mancante peraltro delle quattro carte non numerate introduttive ai canti). L'ultima pagina LXXX termina con una frase tagliata a metà, tuttavia l'opera editorialmente è completa, lo scritto completo verrà pubblicato solamente nel 1821. Dedica manoscritta al piatto anterirore datata 1863. In buone condizioni. Raro, alto valore Copertina morbida editoriale con dorso ricoperto da carta moderna in buone condizioni generali con lievi usure ai margini e dorso. Legatura in discrete condizioni con lievi rotture. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture. Segno di tarlo al margine di piegatura di tutto il volume senza perdita di testo. Very scarce editio princeps of the anti-revolutionary work dedicated to the death of Ugo Bassville written by Vincenzo Monti (1754-1828). Ugo Bassville went in Rome with the charge to negotiate the reopening of the diplomatic relations among the papal court and the revolutionary government of Paris. Unfortunately he was killed by roman inhabitants. Monti decided to write this work to justify the happening: he imagines that the soul of Bassville condamns the horrors of french revolution. The work was published for the first time totally anonymous in 1793 in pamphlets published in different periods, the same year was published the second roman edition and another edition. Editorial data are in page XXXVI (Roma, presso Luigi Perego Salvioni). This copy is totally equal to the editio princeps, but 4 not numbered pages are missing, that are the introductive pages to the chants of the work (e.g. third chant "gli altri di daranno in appresso"), pages that could seem insignificant from an editorial point of view and probably thrown by the ex owner. In this copy there is also the second strophe in pag. 23, verses missing in the second roman edition (in which the four numbered pages introductive to chants are missing). The last page LXXX finishes with a not complete sentence, but the work is complete from an editorial point of view, the complete writing will be published only in 1821. Manuscripted dedication in the internal part of front plate dated 1863. In good conditions. Scarce copy, high value. Soft cartonated cover with spien covered by paper in good general conditions slightly worn in the edges and spine. Binding in fair conditions with slight cracks. Inside pages are in good conditions with foxings. Worming in the folding edge of the whole volume with no loss of text.

        A Topographical Map of the North.n Part of New York Island, Exhibiting the Plan of Fort Washington, now Fort Knyphausen, Shewing the Several Attacks of the Royal Army

      London:. 1793.. Important Revolutionary War era map, showing the attacks on the Patriots during the Battle of Fort Washington, New York by Hessian mercenaries & British forces, and considered the best contemporary plan of the Battle. From Charles Stedman's "History of the American War" and based on a map by Claude Joseph Sauthier. Faden was an important English cartographer and Geographer to King George III; he produced all the British maps of the American Revolution, including maps of the individual colonies, theaters of war, and battle plans, which were highly prized in Britain for their accuracy. This important map of the lower Hudson River (North River) and the current day borough of Manhattan centers on the island from 'Haerlem' and Snake Hill in the south to Tetard's Hill and 'Spiking Devil' in the north. A key at the right lists four attacks on Fort Washington, lettered A through D, with the first, Hessian troops under General Knyphausen; and the second and fourth the British under Matthews, Cornwallis and Percy. Fort Washington is visible at the center, as well as 'Fort Lee or Fort Constitution' directly across the river; these were the two forts intended to protect the lower Hudson from the British. However, Fort Washington fell on November 16, 1776, in a decisive victory for the combined British (under General Howe) and Hessian (under the command of Wilhelm von Knyphausen) forces; the remaining American troops were forced to escape across the Hudson to Fort Lee, which they later fled. Copper engraved map with slight offsetting, a short closed diagonal tear at the left margin, and a very short split at top center fold. 10" x 18 1/4" with original folds, in very good condition.

      Breslau, 12. VIII. 1793. - 1¾ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. An einen namentlich nicht genannten Adressaten über eine seine Übersetzertätigkeit, die durch "häusliche Unruhe, die Entbindung meiner Frau von Zwillingen, die bedenklichen Gesundheitsumstände derselben" arg in Mitleidenschaft gezogen worden ist: "Ueber alles dieses sehe ich mich nun noch, nach reiflicher Ueberlegung außer Stande, Ihrem Verlangen wegen Uebersetzung der Gedichte in den Oeuvres posthumes zu genügen. Ich bin Ihrem Zutrauen dieses aufrichtige Geständnis schuldig welches in der That nicht bloße Ziererey ist. Da ich bey meinen schriftstellerischen Arbeiten immer auf meine Dienstverhältnisse Rücksicht nehmen muss: so ist es für mich eine äußerst ängstliche Lage, wenn ich mich anheischig machen soll, Arbeiten dieser Art binnen einer gewissen Frist zu liefern. Ich habe noch eben jetzt die Erfahrung gemacht; und bin nicht im Stande gewesen, die noch übrigen zwey letzten Episteln binnen einem Zeitraum von 2 Monathen zu übersetzen [.] Ich kann Ihnen, hochzuehrender Herr, unter diesen Umständen bloß folgenden Vorschlag thun [.]". - Samuel Gottlieb Bürde war Mitarbeiter von Wielands "Teutschem Merkur" und Schillers "Horen", schrieb Dramen, Lieder und Opernlibretti (u. a. nach Wielands "Don Sylvio von Rosalva", 1795) "sowie die von den Zeitgenossen gerühmte Milton-Übersetzung 'Das verlorne Paradies' (2 Bde., 1793)" (DBE). - Papierbedingt stärker gebräunt und mit Sammlerstempel "J.

A causa della difficoltà nello srotolamento dei Papiri carbonizzati, solo dopo 40 anni (1793) usci' il 1° vol. che ebbe nel mondo una tale risonanza da dare inizio alla "scienza papirologica".

        Declaration of Independence Signer Samuel Huntington's Copy of an Act of Congress Signed by Thomas Jefferson

      Philadelphia, PA 1793 - Printed Document Signed as Secretary of State. "An Act to alter the Times and Places of holding the Circuit Courts in the Eastern District, and in North-Carolina,." Philadelphia, Pa., March 2, 1793. 2 pp., 9 3/4 x 15 in. Signed in Type by George Washington as President. Lengthy docket by Samuel Huntington. This act establishes the exact places and dates for the spring Circuit Courts to meet for the eastern districts of New-York, Connecticut, Vermont, New-Hampshire, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. This copy of the act, duly signed by Secretary of State Thomas Jefferson a day before the official date of the end of the Second Congress, was sent to Governor Samuel Huntington of Connecticut because the act specified that the spring circuit court "shall henceforth be held . for the district of Connecticut, at New-Haven on the twenty-fifth day of April." In Samuel Huntington's hand: "an Act to alter the times & places of holding the Circuit Courts in the Eastern district & in North Carolina, & for other purposes. March 2d - 93."North Carolina did not have a sufficient number of judges to hold circuit court in the November 1792 term, so this act gave power to the district judge to direct the court clerk to summon jurymen to court and ordered the marshal to execute the process "and the jurymen legally summoned in consequence thereof, are to attend the said court under the like penalties for disobedience as if the said process had been ordered to be issued as usual by the said court."Excerpt"An Act to alter the times and places of holding the Circuit Courts, in the Eastern District, and in North Carolina, and for other purposes.Section 1. Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, Times for holding spring circuits of eastern district and N. Carolina altered.That the spring circuit courts of the eastern district, instead of being held at the times and places now established by law for holding the same, shall from henceforth be held at the times and places following respectively, namely; for the district of New York, at New York, on the fifth day of April; for the district of Connecticut, at New Haven, on the twenty-fifth day of April; for the district of Vermont, at Windsor and Bennington alternately, beginning at the first, on the twelfth day of May; for the district of New Hampshire, at Portsmouth, on the twenty-seventh day of May; for the district of Massachusetts, at Boston, on the seventh day of June; and for the district of Rhode Island, at Newport, on the nineteenth day of June. And if any of the said days shall happen on a Sunday, the courts, respectively, shall commence and be holden on the day following.Sec. 2. And be it further enacted,N. Carolina circuit court after June where to be held. That from and after the expiration of the session of the circuit court of the state of North Carolina, which is to commence on the first day of June next (which session shall be held, any thing in this act notwithstanding, at Newbern) the stated sessions of the said court shall be held at Wake courthouse, either in the courthouse belonging to the said county, or in some convenient building contiguous thereto, until there shall be convenient accommodations for the said purpose in the city of Raleigh.Sec. 3. And be it further enacted,District judge of N. Carolina how to have jurymen summoned for said June term. Inasmuch as there was not a sufficient quorum of judges to hold the circuit court for the district of North Carolina, for the purpose of doing business, at November term one thousand seven hundred and ninety-two, that it shall and may be lawful for the district judge of the state of North Carolina to direct the clerk of the said court to issue such process for the purpose of having jurymen summoned to attend the said court at the term to commence on the first day of June next, as he had before issued for the like pur.

        De Necrosi Ossium.

      . Frankfurti ad Moenum, Impensis Andreaeis, 1793, Folio, (6), 60 pp., große figürliche Titelblattvignette, und 15 von (Georg Joseph) Cöntgen (1752-1799) gest. Kupferstichtafelen; feiner Halbledereinband im Stil der Zeit; minimal fleckig.. Erste illustrierte Ausgabe! - Johann Peter Weidmann "lieferte die erste ausführliche Arbeit über die Knochennekrose in Deutschland. Ihm gebührt das Verdienst, die Sequestrotomie allgemeiner in der Praxis eingeführt zu haben, obschon das Verfahren in Fachkreisen sehr kontrovers diskutiert und zum Teil auch bekämpft wurde. Sicher war es David gewesen, der ihn bei seinem mehrmonatigen Aufenthalt in Rouen für dieses medizinische Teilgebiet interessiert und lebhafte Diskussionen mit seinem Schüler geführt hatte. Wie sich im folgenden zeigen wird, übernahm Weidmann aber nicht nur die Erfahrungen und Untersuchungsergebnisse seines einstigen Lehrers; was den von David empfohlenen Gebrauch des Glüheisens nach erfolgter Sequestrotomie betraf, distanzierte sich Weidmann von dessen Lehrmeinung und bezog eine eindeutig konträre Position, indem er engagiert gegen die Anwendung dieses Instrumentes kämpfte. - - Aus Anlaß der Restaurationsfeierlichkeiten der Mainzer Universität legte Weidmann 1784 seine erste, achtzehn Seiten umfassende Schrift über die Knochennekrose vor. Die 1793 erschienene, erweiterte Ausgabe war mit 15 Kupfertafeln von Cöntgen illustriert. Erst fünf Jahre später wurde die deutsche Übersetzung in Leipzig verlegt. Aber auch noch in einer weiteren Schrift über den Mißbrauch des glühenden Eisens zur Abtrennung nekrotisch gewordener Knochenstücke beschäftigte sich Weidmann mit dem Thema der Knochennekrose, das damit sein Hauptarbeitsgebiet in der Chirurgie wurde, - - Die "bey weitem... beste Schrift, die wir über die Nekrose der Knochen haben" , ist klar strukturiert und entwickelt schrittweise und logisch aufeinander aufbauend Weidmanns Konzept über das Krankheitsbild, das man am ehesten mit der chronischen Osteomyelitis gleichsetzen kann. "Was man in anderen Schriften über diesen Gegenstand so sehr vermißt", das führte Weidmann in den ersten Abschnitten seiner Abhandlung aus: Knochen sind für ihn belebte und organisierte Massen, "durch lebendige Kräfte ernährt". Denn in ihren Höhlen, Zwischenräumen und Kanälen bewegen sich Säfte verschiedenster Art, die Schadstoffe in den Kreislauf abfließen lassen und Nährstoffe zuführen: "Dadurch wird Stockung und Verderbniß derselben verhütet", schrieb Weidmann, "und ihre Masse in guter, gehöriger Beschaffenheit erhalten." - - Im folgenden definierte Weidmann verschiedene Krankheiten, die den Knochen betreffen können, nämlich eitrige Periostitis, Beinfraß und Nekrose oder Knochenbrand. Unter "Beinfraß", den er auch Knochenkaries nannte, faßte er akute, tiefe Knocheneiterungen zusammen, die als Geschwür zur Aushöhlung des Knochens führen Unter Nekrose aber verstand er das Absterben von Knochenteilen durch Minderdurchblutung dieses Gewebebezirks: "bei dem Knochenbrände hingegen hört die Lebenskraft und die Ernährung in einer Stelle so ganz auf, daß sich dieser Theil, da er nicht mehr ernährt werden kann, lostrennen muß." Weidmann ging es vor allem um exakte Begriffsbestimmungen und Differenzierung nur wenig unterschiedlicher Krankheitsbilder. Er beklagte die herrschenden, unpräzisen Krankheitsdefinitionen: "Die meisten Ärzte sind bisher gewohnt gewesen, den Knochenbrand mit andern zu verwechseln. " - - Zur klaren Beschreibung des Krankheitsverlaufs versäumte Weidmann auch nicht, drei exakt definierte Stadien zu erläutern Das erste Stadium war durch heftige Beschwerden des Patienten wie Schmerz und Fieber charakterisiert. Definitionsgemäß durfte sich zu diesem Zeitpunkt noch kein Eiter gebildet haben "In diesem Zustande schwebt der Kranke so lange, bis die Krankheit nach erfolgter Eitererzeugung etwas erleichtert wird, und das Eiter in die benachbarte Zellengewebe übergeht, zwischen die Muskeln und andere Theile eindringt, und sich meistens nach geraumer Zeit an mehrere von einander, und von dem ursprünglichen Sitze der Krankheit jezuweilen ganz entfernten, oder miteinander gegenüber liegenden Stellen einen Ausgang bahnt." Stadium zwei wurde also durch die Fistelbildung charakterisiert; der abgestorbene Knochenteil beginnt sich abzulösen, hängt aber noch mit den "lebendigen Theilen" unbeweglich zusammen Hier fühlt sich der Knochen bei Palpation bereits aufgerauht an; es hat sich eine Grube gebildet. Im Endstadium ist der nekrotische Gewebeteil abgelöst; frei läßt er sich mit Finger oder Sonde innerhalb des Weichteilgewebes tasten. - - Neben eben diesen allgemeinen Maßnahmen legte Weidmann besonderen Wert auf die Entfernung des Sequesters durch den Arzt, denn "so thätig nun aber auch die Natur bei der Trennung der todten Knochen sich verhielt, so wenig oder oft gar nichts kann sie bei der Austreibung der getrennten Stücke ausrichten; hier muß also die Hülfe der Kunst eintreten" Dies müsse geschehen, damit sich die Knochenhöhle schließen und der Weichteilmantel zusammenwachsen könne Streng war auf die sorgfältige Ausräumung der Aushöhlung zu achten, um nicht durch verbleibende Reste eine Fistelbildung zu fördern. Der rechtzeitige Eingriff mit Pinzette oder Zange könne die bisher durchaus gebräuchliche Amputation der betroffenen Extremität ersetzen. War allerdings der rechte Zeitpunkt für die Operation verpaßt und der Patient durch das Krankheitsgeschehen schon stark mitgenommen, "wenn also der Schaden schon ziemlich alt ist; wenn der vorher stärkere Eiterfluß jetzt schon sehr vermindert ist; wenn jezuweilen kleine Knochenstücke mit dem Eiter abgieng, und wenn man mit der Sonde keine todten Knochenstücke fühlt, dann ist es vielleicht besser, die Operation nicht vorzunehmen, sondern eine sich so gut anfangende Sache vollends den Kräften der Natur zu überlassen"." Barbara Weber, Johann Peter Weidmann (1751-1819) und das Mainzer Accoucement (1986), pp.80-85 - - "1793 erscheint die Arbeit von Weidmann "De necrosi ossium" , eine sehr eingehende Studie, die alle bringt, was auf dem Gebiete der Knochenpathologie resp. - physiologie bis dahin erschienen war. Weidmann hatte selbst zahlreiche Versuche gemacht und gelangte zu dem Ergebnis: "Wenn der innere Teil der Knochenrinde abstirbt, der äußere Teil aber gesund bleibt, wird dieser selbst aufschwellen, und gleichsam auf die Weise einen neuen Knochen darstellen." K. Vogeler: Bernhard Heine und seine Zeit, p. 35. In: Bernhard Heines Versuche über Knochenregeneration (1926). - - FIRST EDITION. An early monograph on bone necrosis, published the year before James Russell's treatise "A practical essay on a certain diseases of the bones termed necrosis" (1794) (Garrison & Morton No. 4307), which was one of the first attempts at a complete description of the condition. Weidmann was professor of surgery and obstetrics at Mainz. His book is remarkable for the splendid suite of copperplates with which it is illustrated. - - Blake 484; Engelmann 619; Hirsch/H.
