        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.

        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.

        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 present German edition has 4 beautiful engraved handcoloured frontispieces which are not found in the Dutch edition.

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

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..
