Institut, Munich on title, verso half-title and endpapers. First Edition, journal issue of Flourens?' first paper on cerebral function. In an effort to refute Gall?'s theory of cerebral localization, Flourens carried out a famous series of experiments on pigeons, in which he selectively removed either the cerebral lobes or the cerebellum in order to demonstrate their roles in brain physiology. The pigeons deprived of their cerebral lobes retained their sense of equilibrium, but lost all sense of volition and showed no sensory awareness of their surroundings; in contrast, those deprived of their cerebellums lost all ability to coordinate their muscular motions, but retained their ability to initiate movement and process sensory information. Flourens concluded from these experiments that the cerebral lobes were the seat of intelligence and perception, while the faculty of muscular coordination resided in the cerebellum; however, he insisted that the entire brain acted as a whole with respect to each of its functions.

        TO THE CITIZENS OF BALTIMORE-TOWN [caption title]

      [Baltimore: Printed by James Angell & Paul J. Sullivan, 1794].. Broadside, 11 1/2 x 7 inches. Early ink note on verso: "Mr. Thornton." Old folds. Small separation at one crossfold, affecting two letters of text. Unevenly trimmed around the text. Very good. A very rare Federal-era broadside - only the second located copy - printing the text of an open letter from Judge Samuel Chase to the citizens of Baltimore in the wake of a riot in 1794. Chase, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and a future Supreme Court Justice, defends his actions in detaining the leaders of the mob, and appeals to the citizens of Baltimore to value order and government over their destructive passions. The occasion for the uprising was Congress' declaration of a thirty-day embargo on foreign trade, issued in March 1794. A local shipmaster, Capt. Ramsdell, expressed his displeasure at the end of the embargo, and he and another man, named Stenton (described in the broadside as an "American pirate"), were attacked by a mob. Among the leaders of the mob was Capt. David Stodder, the owner of a local shipyard, and Capt. William Reeves. The mob set upon Ramsdell and Stenton at Fells Point and tarred and feathered them. Chase, who at the time was chief justice of the District Criminal Court in Baltimore and chief justice of the Maryland General Court, ordered that Stodder and Reeves, as the ringleaders, be held in custody pending charges unless they could offer up bail. Stodder and Reeves refused to post bail, and their supporters threatened to tear down the jail and to raze Chase's home. After giving them a day to cool down, the prisoners agreed to post bail and the tense situation abated. In the present broadside Chase describes and justifies his actions, making an eloquent case for the rule of law over the mentality of the mob. He lays out the details of the events, explains his actions in detail, and describes the threats made against him, his family and property, and against public order. Chase concludes by stating that he is doing his duty as a judge and following the oath of his office, and that he is not appealing to the citizens of Baltimore to protect himself, "but that you may determine whether you ought to suffer an outrage to your laws, so fatal to the prosperity of this town, so destructive of all order, and so subversive of your government." This broadside is without an imprint, and the identity of the printers is based on the attribution by Evans. Evans, NAIP, and Minick all locate only a single copy, at the Maryland Historical Society. Rare and quite interesting for the history of law and civic culture in the early American Republic. EVANS 26762. NAIP w000729. MINICK 159. Francis F. Beirne, THE AMIABLE BALTIMOREANS (New York, 1951), pp.144-45.

      Port de la Montagne [i.e. Port Louis]: Chez F.N. Bolle, [1794]. - 28pp. Small quarto. Stitched as issued. Contemporary notation on first page, some contemporary underlining in text. Minor soiling. Very good. A remarkable early imprint from the colonial press at the French colony of Mauritius, also known as the Ile de France, in the south Indian Ocean. The text contains a report of the French Revolutionary Committee of Public Safety regarding prisoners arrested on the island of Réunion being held as enemies of the Revolution. The document was printed in the capital, Port Louis, which was called Port de la Montagne from 1792 to 1795. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce. Printing began on Mauritius in 1768. During the French period, until 1810, only about 400 imprints were produced, mostly in the form of official documents and newspapers, though there are also almanacs and a few other items. All are quite rare. No copies located in OCLC; Toussaint locates a copy at the Archives Nationales in Paris. TOUSSAINT A247.

        Anatomicae disquisitiones de auditu et olfactu. Edito altera auctior.

      - Milano, Galeati, 1794, Folio, (19); 101, (1) pp., mit 16 Kupfertafeln, Halbledereinband der Zeit; fleckig. Antonio Scarpa (1752-18) "made important researches concerning the auditory and olfactory apparatus, birds, reptiles, and man," further he is know in otology for Scarpa's liquor, the fluid in the membranous labyrinth of the inner ear and Scarpa's hiatus, the semi lunar opening of the tip of the cochlear canal where the scala tympani and scala vestibuli unite. - "This work "ensures Scarpa's renown for discovering the membranous labyrinth. It was to be a keystone of otological research. Most of Scarpa's findings are still valid today. Only by means of the improved methods of preparation known to our century have some new details been added to Scarpa's examinations. The great results of Scarpa's studies in otological anatomy derive from his interest in comparative anatomy. Through the examination of lower animals who lacked some or all other parts of the human organ of hearing, Scarpa reached conclusions that led him to the discovery of the membranous labyrinth in man. Scarpa's findings are completely original, experiencing only very slight supplementation later. Valsalva's 'zonae sonorae' and Cotugno's 'neural tissue partition', both based on inadequate methods of examination, were discarded. The fine detail of Scarpa's description of the cochlea surpasses that of Cotugno. His measurement data regarding the cochlea and his description of the canals in the modiolus are especially excellent" Politzer - Scrapa, a brilliant artist as well as a brilliant anatomist, was trained in anatomy by Morgagni at Padua and studied surgery in Bologna. At the age of twenty he became professor at Modena, and in 1783 he went to Pavia where he helped bring the University to pre-eminence. His legacy includes works in otolaryngology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, neuroanatomy, and surgery. The plates were drawn by the author. - His anatomic prints are models of anatomic representation as regards faithful differentiation of the tissues, correctness of form, and the utmost precision of engraving. "Both editions contain the same copperplates, viz., eight finished plates, each with an outline plate with letters. The first five plates deal with zoötomic subjects, the last three with human anatomy. They are all drawn by Scarpa. The first two are engraved by Bededotto Eredi of Florence, the third does not give the name of the engraver, but seems to have been done by Faustino Anderloni, whose name is signed under the last five plates. This work was translated into German: "Anatomische Untersuchungen des Gehörs und des Geruchs ."(1800)."

        Geschichte von Port Jackson in NeuHolland von 1788 bis 1792, Nebst einer Beschreibung der Insel Norfolk

      1794 - “The earliest authentic account of the settlement a Port Jackson” (Streeter). 1794. Hamburg. Hoffmann. In 8vo (202 mm x 120 mm). 1 ff. + vi + 244 + folding map. Contemporary half German calf over boards, raised bands to spine tooled in gilt, lettering label perished, rubbed and scuffed. Title with a contemporary inscription, two later library stamps, foxing and browning; overall a good copy with wide margins and generally very clean. First edition in German. “Regarded by the best authorities as the most accurate, orderly, vivacious and valuable description of life in the colony in its first years” (Hill). Tench (1758 – 1833) sailed on may 1787 towards Botany Bay, making port there in 1788; shortly thereafter, he was transferred to Port Jackson where he deployed his exploring curiosity discovering the local flora and natural resources, as well as the locals of the region. Hill’s note, made for the first edition published a few years earlier, clearly states the importance of Tench’s work for the newly founded Port Jackson. The folding map “Charte von Port Jackson” was not included in the first edition, and is one of the earliest available on Port Jackson. Cox II, 317. Ferguson, 198. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        An original watercolour, titled 'Calycanthus' of a cream-red-flowered shrub with two butterflies and a dragon-fly

      1794. Folio. (17 1/2 x 13 3/4 inches). Original water-colour on Whatman wove paper (sheet size: 17 1/2 x 13 3/4 inches), titled in both English, and Chinese characters. A Chinese drawing of a flowering shrub with butterflies produced for the Western market by a highly-talented Chinese artist. This watercolour derives from a well-established tradition of Chinese artists, working in and around the coastal trading ports, producing work for Western patrons, particularly the members of the East India and Dutch East India Companies. While meeting Western demands for botanical accuracy, the drawing has that fine Chinese feeling and tradition for design and delicacy which almost brings the plant to life. The insects (and particularly the butterflies) are used to heighten what is already a pleasing composition.

      Port de la Montagne [i.e. Port Louis]: Chez F.N. Bolle, [1794].. 28pp. Small quarto. Stitched as issued. Contemporary notation on first page, some contemporary underlining in text. Minor soiling. Very good. A remarkable early imprint from the colonial press at the French colony of Mauritius, also known as the Ile de France, in the south Indian Ocean. The text contains a report of the French Revolutionary Committee of Public Safety regarding prisoners arrested on the island of Réunion being held as enemies of the Revolution. The document was printed in the capital, Port Louis, which was called Port de la Montagne from 1792 to 1795. The Dutch were the first Europeans to become interested in the island, taking possession in 1598. After exploiting the island's dense forests for a century and introducing the cultivation of sugar cane and cotton, in 1710 the Dutch abandoned the colony. The French soon claimed it as "Ile de France," and the island remained under the control of the French East India Company until 1767. During the long war between France and England at the beginning of the 19th century, Mauritius proved to be an important strategic naval base, and as a result the British took charge of the island in 1810, and the Treaty of Paris confirmed official British possession in 1814. It remained an important sugar producing colony, and in the 20th century agricultural production was expanded to include tea, rice, and other produce. Printing began on Mauritius in 1768. During the French period, until 1810, only about 400 imprints were produced, mostly in the form of official documents and newspapers, though there are also almanacs and a few other items. All are quite rare. No copies located in OCLC; Toussaint locates a copy at the Archives Nationales in Paris. TOUSSAINT A247.

      avec les plantes dont ils se nourissent; et le detail exact de leurs differents changemens, des endroits qu'ils frequentent dans l'etat ailé, et de leurs noms vulgaires ou scientifiques donnés et etablis par la Societé des Aureliens Anglois. Londres, J. Edwards, 1794. Folio (400 x 315mm). pp. 145, (4), with handcoloured engraved title (within a fine garland of beautiful flowers and butterflies), 1 handcoloured engraved anatomical plate and 44 handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary green straight grained morocco, later rebacked spine in 7 compartments with gilt lines and lettering, sides with richly gilt border, inside dentelles, gilt edges. "The most celebrated of all the early works about butterflies and moths" (Salmon, The Aurelian legacy p. 115). First issue of the third edition of this beautifully illustrated work which went through a number of editions, a last edition appeared as late as 1840. "... Instead of the English and French texts appearing in double columns as in the previous edition they have been printed on opposite sides of the leaves so that the English text precedes and the French follows each plate ..." (Lisdney 234)./"Very little is known of the life of Moses Harris. By his own admission he was poorly educated; nevertheless, he became the leading entomologist of the eighteenth century and was certainly one of the best entomological artists. He seems to have collected extensively in the south-east of England... His greatest skills, however, were certainly painting and engraving. His standards of engraving were very high and he insisted on a high degree of accuracy. His illustrations were in constant demand by other authors... One of the eighteenth century's finest entomologists, Harris was an enthusiastic collector from an early age; he tells us he was just twelve years old when first taken to a meeting of the Aurelian Society, one of the first entomological societies... In the published work, each of the plates is dedicated to a subscriber. To publish such a work was an expensive undertaking and good subscribers were necessary, not only for their funding, but also because of the hope that they would attract others" (Gilbert, Butterfly Collectors and Painters pp. 46 & 110)./"Harris drew his specimens from life, and like Wilkes, must have reared many of them for he is scrupulous in showing the early stages of his subjects, sometimes at different stages of development. His arrangements are chosen for their aesthetic qualities, with moths, butterflies and other insects all thrown together, often with vases of flowers and other unrelated objects. But their eye-catching effect and fidelity to life is undeniable, and his beautifully coloured plates have given pleasure to entomologists and non-entomologists alike for nearly two and a half centuries" (Salmon p. 116).//The colouring of this very fresh and clean copy is outstanding. ///Hagen I, 341; Nissen ZBI, 1835; Lisney 234.

        Essay, in answer to the following question . . . Together with 6 other papers by Kirwan

      Dublin: George Bonham, for the Academy, 1794. <p>Kirwan, Richard (1733?-1812). (1) Essay, in answer to the following question . . . "What are the manures most advantageously applicable to the various sorts of soils, and what are the causes of their beneficial effect in each particular instance?" In Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy 5 (n.d. [1794]): 129-198. (2) A comparative view of meteorological observations made in Ireland since the year 1788, with some hints towards forming prognostics of the weather. In ibid: 3-29.

(6) Meteorological observations made in Ireland in the year 1793. In ibid.: 227-242. (7) Experiments on a new earth found near Stronthian in Scotland. In ibid.: 243-255. Whole volume, 4to. xvi, [2], 324, [2], 92, [2], 63, [1], 4pp. 7 plates. 261 x 197 mm. Half calf, marbled boards c. 1794, front hinge cracking, one corner bumped. Light dampstaining on some leaves and plates, otherwise very good.</p><p>First Edition. An important early contribution to agricultural chemistry. Kirwan&#39;s analysis of fertilizers suitable to different soils, first published in this volume of the Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy, was issued in book form in 1796 and went through numerous editions in both England and America. The Irish chemist Kirwan is known for his experiments on the specific gravities and attractive powers of various saline substances, which formed a substantial contribution to the methods of analytical chemistry, and earned him the Copley Medal from the Royal Society in 1782. Kirwan is also known for his pioneering work in meteorology, some of which is discussed in the meteorological papers contained in this volume: "From records of Irish weather covering forty-one years, compiled by John Rutty, [Kirwan] worked out a system of probabilities with a view to forecasting the weather for seasons ahead. His predictions were more often right than wrong and were much valued by farmers; though the sequences he observed have not persisted in Ireland, methods of autocorrelation similar to Kirwan&#39;s are today proving successful elsewhere" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Kirwan&#39;s also wrote on geology, disputing the igneous nature of basalt, taking issue with Hutton&#39;s uniformitarian theory of the earth, and publishing an early report on the element strontium, discovered in 1790. This volume of the Transactions of the Royal Irish Academy also contains a paper by George Graydon, "On the fish inclosed in stone of Monte Bolca" (pp. 281-318), illustrated with several striking engravings of fossil fish.</p>

        Anatomicae disquisitiones de auditu et olfactu. Edito altera auctior.

      . Milano, Galeati, 1794, Folio, (19); 101, (1) pp., mit 16 Kupfertafeln, Halbledereinband der Zeit; fleckig.. Antonio Scarpa (1752-18) "made important researches concerning the auditory and olfactory apparatus, birds, reptiles, and man," further he is know in otology for Scarpa's liquor, the fluid in the membranous labyrinth of the inner ear and Scarpa's hiatus, the semi lunar opening of the tip of the cochlear canal where the scala tympani and scala vestibuli unite. - "This work "ensures Scarpa's renown for discovering the membranous labyrinth. It was to be a keystone of otological research. Most of Scarpa's findings are still valid today. Only by means of the improved methods of preparation known to our century have some new details been added to Scarpa's examinations. The great results of Scarpa's studies in otological anatomy derive from his interest in comparative anatomy. Through the examination of lower animals who lacked some or all other parts of the human organ of hearing, Scarpa reached conclusions that led him to the discovery of the membranous labyrinth in man. Scarpa's findings are completely original, experiencing only very slight supplementation later. Valsalva's 'zonae sonorae' and Cotugno's 'neural tissue partition', both based on inadequate methods of examination, were discarded. The fine detail of Scarpa's description of the cochlea surpasses that of Cotugno. His measurement data regarding the cochlea and his description of the canals in the modiolus are especially excellent" Politzer - Scrapa, a brilliant artist as well as a brilliant anatomist, was trained in anatomy by Morgagni at Padua and studied surgery in Bologna. At the age of twenty he became professor at Modena, and in 1783 he went to Pavia where he helped bring the University to pre-eminence. His legacy includes works in otolaryngology, orthopedics, ophthalmology, neuroanatomy, and surgery. The plates were drawn by the author. - His anatomic prints are models of anatomic representation as regards faithful differentiation of the tissues, correctness of form, and the utmost precision of engraving. "Both editions contain the same copperplates, viz., eight finished plates, each with an outline plate with letters. The first five plates deal with zoötomic subjects, the last three with human anatomy. They are all drawn by Scarpa. The first two are engraved by Bededotto Eredi of Florence, the third does not give the name of the engraver, but seems to have been done by Faustino Anderloni, whose name is signed under the last five plates. This work was translated into German: "Anatomische Untersuchungen des Gehörs und des Geruchs ..."(1800)."

An important Act passed by the Third Congress, authorizing the construction of the lighthouse at Cape Hatteras, one of the most prominent navigation landmarks on the East Coast. Though this act was passed in 1794, construction did not actually begin until 1799, and the lighthouse was not put into use until 1803. "The Cape Hatteras Lighthouse protects one of the most hazardous sections of the Atlantic Coast. Offshore of Cape Hatteras, the Gulf Stream collides with the Virginia Drift, a branch of the Labrador Current from Canada. This current forces southbound ships into a dangerous twelve-mile long sandbar called Diamond Shoals. Hundreds and possibly thousands of shipwrecks in this area have given it the reputation as the &#39;Graveyard of the Atlantic&#39;" - National Park Service. "Approved - May the thirteenth 1794," and signed in print by Speaker of the House Frederick Augustus Muhlenberg, Vice President John Adams, and President George Washington. Variant states of other acts of the Third Congress are known, and this issue is that which also has the printed lines, "Deposited among the Rolls in the Office of the Secretary of State" and "Secretary of State," and signed in manuscript by the second Secretary of State, Edmund Randolph. NAIP locates copies at the Library of Congress, Rhode Island Historical Society, and the American Antiquarian Society; OCLC locates just three more. Edmund Randolph became the second Secretary of State on Jan. 2, 1794, succeeding Thomas Jefferson, who resigned at the end of 1793. He continued the practice begun in the First Congress of the Secretary of State signing a small number of "official" copies of Congressional acts for distribution to the States and important government officials. After the Third Congress, official acts were no longer signed in manuscript by the Secretary of State. EVANS 27853. NAIP w028062. OCLC 20447408.
