        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. V, 879; Lesky 700; Wolfenb. IV, 1780.

        CORPS DE VOLONTAIRES DE BOURBON [cover title]

      L'Isle Bourbon: Imprimerie Coloniale, 1793.. [2],7,[2]pp. Quarto. Printed self-wrappers, stitched as issued. Contemporary manuscript inscription on titlepage. Moderate dampstaining to lower half of text. Good plus. Extremely early and rare imprint from the colonial press at the French colony of Bourbon, present-day Réunion Island, dated August 1, 1793. The text outlines the articles for the organization of a voluntary militia for the island. The first printing press arrived on Réunion in June 1792 and began to print early in 1793, rendering this piece very early in the history of the island's printing. Once printing arrived on the island, it was spotty at best, with a dormant period from 1797 to 1803, and many of the official documents still came over from nearby Mauritius which was responsible for the administration of Réunion. Printing began on Mauritius in 1768, and it would seem that, for the most part, Mauritius's press was sufficient for the distribution of printed material on Réunion Island. No copies located in OCLC. Possibly unique.

The first German edition (1785-1791) did not comprise volume V, entitled: 'Beyträge zur Geschichte der Insecten' (containing 12 plates). The present German edition has 4 beautiful engraved handcoloured frontispieces which are not found in the Dutch edition. As always some minor foxing to the text as this was printed on different paper than the plates./The first major iconography on Coleoptera and one of the finest entomological works published in the German language. Johannes Eusebius Voet (1706-1778) was a physician at Dordrecht. He possessed a large cabinet of insects and shells and was the son of Carl Voet, who was court-painter to the Earl of Portland. The Dutch Entomological Society has a splendid album on insects and their metamorphosis by Carl Voet, following closely Goedaert. According to Landwehr, Johannes Eusebius Voet was as well the author as the artist of the 'Catalogus Systematicus Coleopterorum'. Most of the splendid plates are engraved by C.F.C. Kleeman, Roesel's son-in-law, in the same elaborate manner and preciseness of detail that we know from his other works.//Nissen ZBI, 4259; Horn & Schenkling 16730.

        Inquiries into the Origin and Progress of the Science of Heraldry in England

      Gloucester - Printed by R. Raikes 1793 - A nice clean first edition of Dallaway's work on Heraldry with bright hand-coloured platesFirst EditionBound in quarter leather with marbled boards, gilt lettering and blind embossed detail. In the original binding. Collated complete with 26 platesEight of which are hand colouredOwnership bookplate belonging to Thomas Payne M. A. to the front pastedown. The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography writes, 'Dallaway, James (17631834), antiquary, was born on 20 February 1763 in the parish of Sts Philip and James, Bristol, the son of James Dallaway (17301787) of Stroud, Gloucestershire, a banker, and his wife, Martha (17391783), the daughter of Richard Hopton of Worcester; only he and his younger sister survived childhood. Having been ordained deacon in late 1785 by the bishop of Gloucester he became curate at Rodmarton, Gloucestershire, to Samuel Lysons (father of the antiquaries Daniel and Samuel), and then at Rodborough. He was engaged to assist Richard Bigland in editing his father's papers; before they parted acrimoniously in early 1794 he completed the first twenty-two parts of Ralph Bigland's Historical, Monumental, and Genealogical Collections, Relative to the County of Gloucester (178694) and gained a valuable introduction to the College of Arms. His Inquiries into the Origin and Progress of the Science of Heraldry in England (1793) was dedicated to the Earl Marshal. He was elected a fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1789. 'Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is some wear to the extremities including some cracking to the outer hinges and bumping. Internally the pages are bright and cleam with only the very occasional spot or handling mark. There are some ink drawings to the gutter of pages lxxx-lxxxii, with some slight offsetting.

        The Man of the World

      London - Printed by J. Bell, 1793 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A nice clean copy. Bound in marbled calf leather. Rebacked with the original leather. First edition thus. Presentation copy from John Johnston of the Theatre Royal Covent Garden to Samuel Rogers. Charles Macklin (1690 1797) was an actor and dramatist. He was one of the most distinguished actors of his day, equally in tragedy and comedy. He gained his greatest fame in the role of Shylock in The Merchant of Venice. He wrote many plays, including Love a la Mode (1759), The School for Husbands, or The Married Libertine (1761), and The Man of the World (1781). In 1735 Macklin quarrelled with a fellow actor named Hallam and accidentally killed the man by thrusting his cane through Hallam's eye. He was tried for murder, conducted his own defence, and won an acquittal. Samuel Rogers, 1763 1855, was an English banker and poet, during his lifetime one of the most celebrated, although his fame has long since been eclipsed by his Romantic colleagues and friends Wordsworth, Coleridge and Byron. His recollections of these and other friends such as Charles James Fox are key sources for information about London artistic and literary life, with which he was intimate, and which he used his wealth to support. Rogers held various honorary positions: he was one of the trustees of the National Gallery; and he served on a commission to inquire into the management of the British Museum, and on another for the rebuilding of the Houses of Parliament. John Henry Johnstone, 1749 1828, was an actor and singer. As information from the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography tells us, Johnstone was originally articled to a Dublin attorney but later moved to London to join the cavalry regiment. After his discharge, he turned to singing and the stage. His first appearance was in Dublin, and remained on the Irish stage for ten years. In 1783 Johnstone went to London, engaged at Covent Garden for three years. Johnstone was enthusiastically received and continued at Covent Garden as a singer and actor until 1803. Then, he moved to Drury Lane, and remained with the company for the remaining seventeen years of his career, accompanying them to the Lyceum between 1809 and 1812. He was welcomed in Dublin in 1803 in genuine Irish roles such as Sir Callaghan O'Brallaghan in Macklin's Love la Mode, and became known as Irish Johnstone for his superiority in Irish parts. Condition: The binding is tight and firm. There is mild wear to the extremities, including bumping. Internally the pages are clean and bright, with a couple of spots and handling marks only. There is some offsetting fromthe frontis. There is an ink inscription on the title page and front free endpaper. There is a description stuck to the front paste down. Overall the condition is very good..

        Faunae Insectorum Germanicae Initia oder Deutschlands Insecten.

      Nürnberg, in der Felseckerschen Buchhandlung, 1793-1813. 110 parts, loose in old wrappers and preserved in 9 boxes. Oblong small-8vo (125 x 95mm). With 2640 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates, each plate with descriptive text. The attractive uniform boxes, with gilt ornamented and lettered spines and marbled sides are of a later date. An attractive set of all that was published by Panzer, of the most beautiful miniature entomological work ever published. Panzer published parts 1-109 and the final part of this set was published by Geyer. The splendid illustrations are of an unsurpassed beauty and exactness. Georg Wolfgang Franz Panzer (1755-1829) was a German entomologist; regional physician in Hersbruck near Nuremberg and lecturer at the Collegium Medicum in Nuremberg. "There does not exist a more accurate or useful work. The figures are drawn and etched by the famous Sturm, the best entomological artist on the continent; ... while the descriptions, although frequently too short, are written by hand of a master. The system of Fabricius is followed and the work altogether is highly essential to every one who writes upon the entomology of Europe" (Swainson).//A continuation to Panzer's work was published by Herrich-Schaeffer and is very scarce due to a decreasing number of subscribers.//"Die alte bayrische Schule der naturwissenschaftliche Illustrationen hat sich unsterbliche Verdienste besonders um die Entomologie erworben. Sie hat die schönsten Abbildungswerke dieser Wissenschaft geliefert" (Junk. Rara II, p. 142).//Jacob Sturm (1771-1848) was born in Nürnberg. His father Johann Georg Sturm was an engraver. Jacob Sturm was the editor and illustrator of several natural history works such as his 'Deutschlands Flora in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen'. Apart from this he illustrated a great number of the finest natural history works published at that period in South Germany.//Added to the series are: /The original backcovers bound in brown half morocco of all the 110 parts with the printed names of the insects contained in each part./The 'Catalogus systematicus' by Panzer of parts 1-108 'Index systematicus methodo Fabriciana', Nürnberg 1793-1809./Saunders, E.

        THE BOOK OF COMMON PRAYER, AND ADMINISTRATION OF THE SACRAMENTS AND OTHER RITES AND CEREMONIES OF THE CHURCH, ACCORDING TO THE USE OF THE PROTESTANT EPISCOPAL CHURCH IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA: TOGETHER WITH THE PSALTER, OR PSALMS OF DAVID

      New York: Printed by Hugh Gaine, 1793.. [370],171,[4]pp. 18mo. Contemporary red morocco, gilt. Binding worn. First few leaves loose. Minor foxing and soiling. About very good. The first edition of The Book of Common Prayer published "by Direction of the General Convention" of the Protestant Episcopal Church in the United States. In 1789 the American Episcopal church adopted its first version of the Book of Common Prayer, which was used from 1790 until a major revision was completed in 1892. During this time, several editions of the Book of Common Prayer were published with corrections and other minor changes, of which this 1793 edition was the first. Evans notes that "[t]his is the corrected edition of the 'first' Book of common prayer, and ante-dates the so-called second 'Standard' edition" - presumably, the octavo edition published by Hugh Gaine in the same year, which has sometimes been assigned priority over the present edition.

        Sammlung auserlesener Vögel und Schmetterlinge, mit ihren Namen. Herausgegeben auf Hundert nach der Natur ausgemahlten Kupfern.

      Augsburg, gedruckt mit Brinnhausserischen Schriften, 1793. 8vo (197 x 122mm). pp. 16, with 100 hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary half calf, gilt ornamented spine with gilt lettered label (head and foot of spine a bit rubbed). The rarest of Hübner's works and probably the rarest entomological work ever published. We suppose that Dr. W. Junk once owned a copy which he describes in extenso in his 'Rara Historia Naturalia'. In his '50 Jahre Antiquar' on page 31 he writes that on one occasion he was able to buy an almost complete set of Hübner's works 'aus den kaiserlichen und erzherzoglichen Bibliotheken Oesterreichs und Ungarns'. As W. Junk is the only major source of information on this book we quote his description. / "Auf jeder der 100 Tafeln ist ein Vogel und ein Schmetterling - fast durchgängig Microlepidopteren - dargestellt. Der Hauptwert des Werkes liegt in den Abbildungen der letzteren. Denn während die Tafeln der Vögel bis auf einen kleinen Theil nach den Abbildungen anderer Zoologen hergestellt sind, Hübner sich auch bei der Wahl der abzubildenden Arten zu sehr von der Rücksicht auf ihre Schönheit leiten liess, ist unter den Schmetterlingen nicht einer, der nicht unmittelbar nach der Natur gezeichnet und gemalt wurde, und - was besonders wichtig ist - die in der Sammlung enthalten Species waren vorher nie oder nur ganz mangelhaft abgebildet. Einer grossen Anzahl der Microlepidopteren hat der Autor, wie er selbst angibt, in diesem Buche zum ersten Male Namen gegeben./Dieses erste grössere Werk Hübner's ist das seltenste der Bücher des Autors, die bekanntlich alle zu den Raritäten der entomologischen Litteratur gehören. Selbst Hagen, der die anderen alle gesehen hat, ist von diesem kein Exemplar zu Augen gekommen. Schon in Jahre 1850 war es laut Ankündigung Dr. Herrich-Schäffer's im Gegensatz zu den anderen Werken Hübner's ganz vergriffen... Dieses sehr seltene Buch, das kaum von jemand Anders als von Ochsenheimer und Treitschke an ein paar Stellen citirt wird... wird den wenigsten Lepidopterologen zu Gesicht gekommen sein oder künftig kommen" (W. Junk, Rara Historico-Naturalia II, p. 137). /A fine copy.//See F. Hemming, Hübner, a bibliographical account p. 65; Hagen p. 388.

        Extracts from Colonel Tempelhoffe's History of the Seven Years War:

      London, T. Cadell, , 1793. His Remarks on General Lloyd: On the Subsistence of Armies; and on the March of Convoys. Also a Treatise on Winter Posts. To which is added a Narrative of Events at St. Lucie and Gibraltar, and of John Duke of Marlborough's March to the Danube, with the Causes and Consequences of that Measure. 2 volumes, octavo. (218 × 133mm). Contemporary speckled calf, slightly rubbed overall, joints repaired, new labels. 5 folding maps and plans, dispositions in colour to the large folding map of St. Lucia at the rear, tables and Orders of Battle to the text. Light browning, but overall a very good set if a little externally worn. First edition. Tempelhoff was amongst the military thinkers of the Aufklärung who sought a theory of war based on the close study of modern experience rather than "gleaning military science from the histories of ancient Greece and Rome". Tempelhoff's "Prussian counter-history" to Lloyd's Austrian-biased account, "whilst taking issue with Lloyd's interpretation of the war … shared his fundamental outlook on military theory and also accepted his reasoning concerning the line of operations" (Gat, The Origins of Military Thought, p.76). Extracts from Tempelhoff's text are augmented with a translation of Lindenau's Ãœber Winterpostirungen and Lindsay's own observations on St. Lucia and Gibraltar. Lindsay, who served with the 46th regiment in America and the West Indies, died lieutenant-colonel of his regiment in Grenada.

        Sermons on Various and Important Subjects, In Practical Divinity, Adapted to the Plainest Capacities, and Suited to the Family Closet (3 Volumes)

      Johnston & Justice, Philadelphia - London 1793 - Rev. Devereux Jarratt, Rector of Bath in the State of Virginia, was ordained in England, returned to the U.S. and was received into Bath Parish in 1763.

Vol. 3 lists in Mr. Perkins' hand the titles and texts of the sermons included in that vol. A total of 30 sermons are included. 298 pp, 315 pp, 321 pp. 16 mo.

        The Botanical Magazine; or, Flower-Garden displayed: in which the most ornamental foreign plants, cultivated in the open ground, the green-house, and the stove, are accurately represented in their natural colours...

      London, S. Couchman, 1793-1814. 40 volumes, bound in 20. 8vo (235 x 140mm). With 1684 fine hand-coloured engraved plates. Contemporary uniform red half morocco, richly gilt spines, marbled sides. An attractive uniformly bound set of the early years of this famous and beautifully illustrated magazine. The magazine has continued publication almost without interruption to the present day and has become a national institute of which Englishmen may justly be proud. It should be noted that the colouring of the earlier volumes, as offered above, is far superior to the later ones. "It is, indeed, the oldest current scientific periodical of its kind with coloured illustrations in the world, and in the beauty of production and high standard of its contributions it can claim a unique place" (Henry II, p. 302). Title pages to volumes 6 to 10 have been discarded by the binder, who got confused as there are 2 volumes, each with a title-page, bound in one. Added to the set the Index to vols. 1-53. The first 5 volumes are in a slightly later (identical) issue as the edition of the first 5 volumes was too low and quickly sold out. William Curtis (1746-1799) was a famous English botanist and is best known for his splendid 'Flora Londinensis' and 'The Botanical magazine'. The noted natural history illustrators, James Sowerby and Sydenham Edwards both found a start with the eminent magazine. The genus Curtisia is named in his honour.//Stafleu & Cowan 1290; Nissen BBI, 2350.
