        PROCES-VERBAL DE LA RECEPTION DU GENERAL DE DIVISION ERNOUF, EN QUALITE DE CAPITAINE-GENERAL DE LA GUADELOUPE ET DEPENDANCES [caption title]

      Guadeloupe, 1804. 4pp. Quarto, on a single folded sheet. Minor foxing and soiling. Very good. Untrimmed.

        LA MINERVE, Vaisseau Aerien Destine aux Decouvertes, et propose a toutes les Academies de l'Europe; par le Physicien Robertson, Ci-devant Professeur a l'Ecole centrale du departement de l'Ourte, de la Societe Galvanique,

      Vienna, SV Degen, 1804 and Paris Hocquet, 1820.. de celle d'Emulation de Liege, et de celle pour l'Encouragement des Sciences et Arts de Hambourg. SECOND EDITION, revue et corrigee, 1820. French text, 8vo, approximately 190 x 125 mm, 7½ x 5 inches, woodcut title vignette, 4 woodcut illustrations printed on 3 pages, 1 large folding plate of the Minerve, plus at the end 1 EXTRA folding plate (probably a facsimile) of a fantasy flying machine which seems to come from an Italian work, pages: 36, (4), bound in modern half calf over cloth sides, raised bands and gilt decoration to spine, contrasting gilt lettered labels, top edges gilt, marbled endpapers. Corners and hinges very slightly rubbed, small blemish to upper hinge, front inner paper hinge cracked, 2 very small repairs to edge of front endpaper, slightly foxed throughout, mostly light, the folding plate is faintly foxed at the edges, there is a small light stain at the top outer corner, a tiny piece missing from the lower corner and a very short closed edge tear at the inner edge (repaired on reverse), the unnumbered illustrated pages at the end are very faintly foxed at the edges, otherwise a very good copy. Étienne-Gaspard Robert (1763-1837) was a famous Belgian stage magician pioneering projection techniques for phantasmagoria shows, at the same time pursuing an academic career as professor of physics at Liege, specialising in optics. He also had vast experience with balloons - he was Commandant des Aerostiers during the war, serving under General Jourdain in Belgium and Holland in 1803/4, providing valuable observations on the enemy troops and movements from tethered and untethered balloon observing stations; he is also regarded by some as the inventor of the parachute. There was nothing about the balloon described in this pamphlet that would have worked, and Robertson knew it, intending his work to be more of caricature of existing attempts in flight than as a science fiction creation. The balloon was to have been one of the biggest ever designed with a 150 foot diameter for a load of 161,000 lbs including 60 scientists, plus some ladies who have their own quarters, and it was to be fitted out with a library, church, exercise area, chemistry laboratory, music room, food and wine storage, kitchen, the only place where a fire is allowed, etc. It is also provided with a small ship underneath for sea landings. The first edition which is extremely scarce was first published in Vienne, France in 1804. This is mentioned on the title page and see Tissandier, Bibliographie Aeronautique page 33.

        Degli innesti animali.

      Milano, Genio, 1804. Lex 8vo. Large-paper copy, completely uncut, on extra-thick paper, in the original wrappers of hand-blocked patterned paper. With a few contemporary hand-written annotations/corrections and marginal markings. An extraordinarily fine copy with minimal wear. 78 pp. + 1 f. errata. Frontispiece portrait and two engraved plates (one - with the famous sheep - folded).. A magnificent copy, in completely original condition, of the rare first edition (printed in a small number only) of this milestone in the history of plastic surgery, Baronio's immensely significant masterpiece, which constitutes the first example of purely scientific research in the history of plastic surgery. Furthermore, it is in this work that the possibility of skin transfer (grafting) is demonstrated for the first time, marking the beginning of a new era for plastic surgery. "The basic principle of free transplantation . . . constituted, when fully understood and applied, the greatest single advance [in plastic surgery] of the nineteenth century." (Gnudi & Webster, p 328)."Degli Innesti Animali, has to be considered an epoch-marking work for several reasons. It is the only treatise on plastic surgery written two centuries after Tagliacozzi's De Curtorum Chirurgia (1597). It is the first experimental account on a successful autologous skin graft in an animal with a detailed report. It is the first example of purely scientific research in the history of plastic surgery." (ISAPS - International Society of aesthetic plastic surgery)."It is a landmark in the development of plastic surgery procedure after two centuries of neglect." (Hagströmer).Describing his experiments with skin grafting on animals (most famously on the sheep, which is depicted in the book), Baronio laid the foundation for human skin grafting, which was only successfully done for the first time 13 years later, in 1817. "Baronio carried out trials on a total of 27 animals (rams, goats, dogs, and even a mare and a cow), always with the same positive results. These studies were of immense significance, serving first and foremost to demonstrate that grafts could be transferred and survive, a fact up to then had not been scientifically proven. Indeed, this possibility was dismissed by leading surgeons including Alfred Armand Velpeau who... asserted that "this strange operation will never be practiced" Furthermore, by comparing the results of grafts carried out under different conditions and different time intervals, Baronio succeeded in clarifying many of the biological aspects of the grafting and healing processes." (Santoni-Rugiu & Sykes: A History of Plastic Surgery, p. 123)."The publication of "Degli Innesti Animali" (On grafting in Animals) by Giuseppe Baronio (1759-1811) in 1804, the first account of experimental autologous skin transplantation in a ram, marks the beginning of a new era for plastic surgery - the demonstration that skin transfer in the same individual is possible and successful. Degli Innesti Animali, the most important work of Baronio, is a 78-page book, printed on thick paper, issued in 1804 in Milan by Tipografia del Genio. The book is rare and seldom appears on the market. It is divided into seven parts and includes three engraved illustrations. The first one shows the portrait of the Count Carlo Anguissola, to whom the work is dedicated, who sponsored the publication, although this is not mentioned, and provided animals and stables for making Baronio's experiments possible.In parts one and two, Baronio traces the origin of nasal reconstruction by quoting the Brancas of Sicily, Tagliacozzi, and the Maratha surgeons from India. The Tagliacozzi's arm flap technique is extensively described, whereas the Indian forehead flap procedure is also illustrated by an engraved plate. Part three is devoted to transplantation of teeth in human beings, a procedure first reported by John Hunter; whereas part four explains the grafting of spur and "other animal parts into the cock's comb." In part five, Baronio reports the method of healing severed skin parts by using certain balms, as proposed by some charlatans. Part six, the most important section of the book, deals with the original Baronio studies on skin graft in a ram. He carried out three types of experiments on the farm of the estate of the Count Anguissola at Albignano, in the surroundings of Milan. In doing this, Baronio was supported by two Milanese surgeons G.B. Monteggia (1762-1815) and G.B. Palletta (1748-1832).In the first experiment, he excised a piece of skin from the dorsum of a ram and grafted it immediately on the opposite side without suturing it, but attaching it with an adhesive. After eight days the graft took perfectly. In the second experiment, on the same ram, the time lapse was 18 minutes. Baronio noticed that the graft had some difficulties in taking (Author's note: probably superficial necrosis at it occurs in full thickness skin grafts). In the third experiment, always on the same ram, the time lapse was longer and the graft did not take. He concluded that the shorter the time for transplantation the better in terms of survival rate. A beautiful engraved illustration of a ram with skin grafts positioned along its dorsum accompanies the text. Regrettably, Baronio was not aware that the thickness of the skin was the most important factor for skin graft survival. Very possibly in the third experiment he harvested the skin with the underlying adipose tissue, thus jeopardizing the graft take.In the last part of the book, part seven, he created wounds on different animals (goat, dog, sheep) and covered them with aluminum paste to isolate wounds from the air to avoid potential contamination. He noticed that this method facilitated wound healing.Degli Innesti Animali, has to be considered an epoch-marking work for several reasons. It is the only treatise on plastic surgery written two centuries after Tagliacozzi's De Curtorum Chirurgia (1597). It is the first experimental account on a successful autologous skin graft in an animal with a detailed report. It is the first example of purely scientific research in the history of plastic surgery. For this reason, the founding members of the Plastic Surgery Research Council established the image of the Baronio ram with skin graft over its dorsum as the emblem of the organization.

        ELEMENTS OF BOTANY: OR OUTLINES OF THE NATURAL HISTORY OF VEGETABLES

      London, 1804. 19th-century boards rebacked with paper, original printed label. Covers moderately soiled. Foredge and bottom edge untrimmed. Internally fresh, with occasional minor foxing in text and on plates. A very good copy. First London edition, following the original Philadelphia edition of the previous year. The first basic botany written by an American, it is an important contribution to American natural history. Barton was a native of Lancaster, Pennsylvania; later professor of natural history at the University of Pennsylvania; and an author with a wide range of interests. An important American botanical work, and the basis for much which followed. This London edition contains occasional notes by the British editor. In our experience it is even rarer than the American edition. This book is notable as one of the few volumes which Lewis and Clark carried across the continent with them in 1804-6. SABIN 3806.

        Manuscript Ciphering Book; Mathematics and Surveying

      Draper's Meadow, Wythe-Pulaski County, Virginia, 1804. Quarter Bound. Very Good. Samuel, a member of one of the most prominent and prosperous families of Southwestern Virginia, was the grandson of John Draper Sr, the son of John Draper Jr, and the nephew of Mary Ingles. He prepared this ciphering book after the family had successfully recovered from the infamous Shawnee massacre of the Draper Meadows settlement in which all of the nine men, women, and children who were present (including Samuel's aunt, two cousins, and his father's first wife) were either killed or taken captive. The book, which measures 8" x 12", contains about 280 pages, many with finely drawn proofs and illustrations, covering not just arithmetic and algebra but far more advanced subjects related to surveying including geometry, trigonometry, logarithms, use of the survey chain, approximating heights, computation of areas, and division of lands. Three pages contain draft land indentures between Wythe County and the Drapers, and four manuscript and partially printed land transfers and property tax receipts (one of which references ownership of 16 slaves) are laid in. The half-leather binding is worn but holding together although there are splits between some signatures. It appears that five leaves may have been removed, and two leaves appear to have been tipped back into place.

      London: printed for Thomas Taylor, by R. Wilks, and sold by E. Jeffery and R. H. Evans, 1804 - Five volumes, quarto (295 x 230 mm). Recent full speckled calf, boards with two double-line gilt rule borders and a single line border in black, spines decorated gilt in compartments, direct lettered and numbered gilt, marbled endpapers and edges, blue silk ribbon place markers. Occasional light spotting and the odd marginal stain, short tear to one leaf in volumes two and five; an excellent set. Engraved plate of geometrical figures in volume one, errata leaf in volume three. First edition of the philosopher Thomas Taylor's masterful translation of Plato, the first English translation of the complete works of Plato, revising and completing the work begun by Floyer Sydenham, together with his extensive notes on contemporary Greek manuscript commentaries. "It was through Taylor's translations that the Romantic poets had access to Platonism: they are probably one of the sources of Blake's mythology, as well as his repudiation of the natural science of Bacon and Newton, and his late tempera painting The Arlington Court Picture was almost certainly inspired by Taylor's translation of Porphyry's On the Cave of the Nymphs; there is no doubt that Coleridge's acquaintance with Proclus was assisted by Taylor's translation and commentary, though Coleridge's appreciation of Taylor is invariably laced with acid criticism. Taylor's immediate influence in England was short-lived; only at the end of the century did those with an enthusiasm for ancient Gnosticism, such as G. R. S. Mead, revive his memory. His fate in America was very different. R. W. Emerson read Taylor's translations enthusiastically, and Taylor's influence was felt among Emerson's disciples, adepts of 'transcendental philosophy' such as Amos Bronson Alcott, William T. Harris, Thomas M. Johnson, Hiram K. Jones, and Thomas Wentworth Higginson, though that influence had waned by the end of the century. Emily Dickinson, who was a friend of Higginson, therefore probably owed her Platonism ultimately to Thomas Taylor." (ODNB). Lowndes 1877. [Attributes: First Edition]

        A List of the names of the provincials who were killed and wounded in the late engagement with his majesty's troops at Concord, April 19, 1775...

      [Boston? : s.n., reprinted July, 1804.] Folio, 14 3/4 x 4 1/2 ins. with good margins. Text within black mourning bars. Broadside matted, two minor flaws not affecting text, generally in very good condition. “The shot heard round the world”. This broadside commemorates the militiamen who were wounded or killed at the first opening hostilities between the British troops and the American revolutionaries. Notably it includes Prince Estabrook (printed “Prince Easterbrooks a Negro man”) who was wounded. “He was honored in 2008 by the city of Lexington, MA with a monument erected in front of Buckman Tavern as being the first black combatant of the American Revolution and for representing the thousands of slaves who fought for their country even though their own freedom was not afforded to their people until almost a hundred years later.” The first printing of this broadside is distinguished by the headpiece being a woodcut skull and crossbones; the reprint has a coffin and urn. It would seem to be a legendary rarity in American history. We can only locate two copies sold in the last 100 years and one or possibly two copies in Institutions (Mass. Hist. Soc. and possibly another at AAS) -- this re-issue in type facsimile (dated by the AAS from the Streeter copy) also seems to be very scarce.

        Calendario manual y Guia de forasteros en Mexico, para el ano de 1804

      [Mexico]: Zuniga y Ontiveros, [1804]. First printing. 12 mo (13 x 7.5 cm), pp [4], 198, [4, index], with 2 folding copper-engraved maps. The maps are "Plano de la Ciudad de Mexico", and "Las cercanias de Mexico." [Medina, Mexico, 9476, citing only one map present, the Ciudad; Palau 381683 calls for both maps.] There is a frontispiece engraving by Manuel Tolsa, presumably of the coat of arms of the current Viceroy, the Conde de Revillagigedo. Contents include a chronology of the viceroys, one of the archbishops of Mexico, an almanac showing phases of the moon and saints' days, a directory of royal and city officials as well as shorter registries for other important cities of the realm, and a list of presidios and their commanders, among which is California. The presidios of San Diego, Monterey, and San Francisco are mentioned, with the number of troops in each. Other statistics are provided as well, e.g. the birth and death rates in the capital drawn from hospital records. The printer Mariano de Zuniga y Ontiveros began his series of almanacs and guides in 1792, carrying on and expanding the efforts of his father, Felipe, who had been publishing almanacs from the 1760's. These early Calendarios are uncommon, as evidenced by their scarcity in world library holdings: one copy is shown for this year, and one copy for 1805. This copy is from the library of a Hans Baehr, with his elegant bookplate on the front pastedown, and a note of his address, in pencil, on the flyleaf. A superb copy; the maps are impeccable; the binding is contemporary full marbled calf with gold fillet' endpapers are the original, marbled; binding is very sound.
