        Lehrbuch der praktischen Blitzableitungskunst nebst den Angaben der neuesten Naturforscher die Elektrizität der Atmosphäre zu erforschen als Fortsetzung der theoretischen Blitzableitungslehre.

      Nürnberg, Schneider und Weigel, 1804 - XXXII, 446 S., 1 Bl. (Verberrungen). 16 gefalt. Kupfertafeln. Erste Ausgabe dieser frühen Abhandlung zu den Blitzableitern verfasst von Johann Konrad Gütle, der 1788 den ersten Blitzableiter in Nürnberg montiert hatte. - Johann Konrad (auch Conrad) Gütle (1747 - 1827)"war ein Tausendsassa, der die verschiedensten Professionen wahrgenommen hat. Gelernt hat er als Buchbinder und Futteralmacher und sich im Laufe der Zeit autodidaktisch Kenntnisse in Physik und Mathematik angeeignet. Etwa ab 1780 war er als reisender Experimentator (Schausteller) unterwegs, wobei er auch schon Elektrisiermaschinen und Zubehör verkaufte und reparierte und nebenbei Kranke durch Elektrisieren heilte. In Heilbronn schalt man ihn deshalb als Betrüger. In Regensburg nennt ihn die ortsansässige Zeitung einen „hochfürstlich-ansbachischen Mechanicus." (Als ein Mechanicus galt damals nur ein sehr geschickter Handwerker, der die verschiedensten Materialien bearbeiten konnte und auch als Tüftler sehr erfinderisch sein musste. Christoph Gottlieb Murr zählt in seiner Beschreibung der Reichstadt Nürnberg von 1802 unter der Rubrik „Jetzt lebende Künstler in Nürnberg" neben den Musikern, Malern, Kupferstechern und Bildhauern auch die „Mechaniker und physikalischen Künstler" auf, zu denen er den seit 1788 in Nürnberg lebenden Gütle rechnet.) Bekannt ist Gütle vor allem als Produzent von Elektrisiermaschinen, als Trommler für den Blitzschutz und als Privatlehrer für Naturwissenschaften. In nicht wenigen Orten Frankens (auch in Nürnberg) hat er die ersten Blitzableiter eingerichtet und genoss dabei einen hervorragenden Ruf. In die internationale Literatur eingegangen ist er mit einer „elektrischen Lampe", bei der mit Hilfe eines Elektrophors eine Gaslampe gezündet worden ist. Geschrieben hat er auch sehr viel, alleine die Bayerische Staatsbibliothek hat in ihrem Bestand 24 verschiedene Titel von ihm. Von Nürnberg aus betrieb er einen regen Versandhandel und stellte als ein „in der Chemie Beflissener" zudem Reinigungs-, Schönheits- und Haarwuchsmittel her. Sogar der Dichter Jean Paul erwähnt in seinem Werk ein Haarfärbemittel von Gütle, mit dem seine weißen Haare wieder schwarz geworden sein sollen" (Siegfrid Kett: Er brachte den Blitzableiter nach Nürnberg: Johann Conrad Gütle - Mechanicus, Schausteller, Elektrisierer und Wunderheiler, Physiker, Chemiker, Lehrer, Buchautor und Versandhändler. In: Mitteilungen des Vereins für Geschichte der Stadt Nürnberg 96 (2009), S. 177 ff). - Papierbedingt etw. gebräunt, teils etw. fleckig oder leicht wasserrandig. Schönes Exemplar. Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 700 Gr.-8°. Ldr. der Zeit mit Rückenschild (etw. berieben, gering bestoßen). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Art of Love, in Three Books. The Remedy of Love, The Art of Beauty, and Amours. From the Latin of P.N. Ovid

      Printed for B. Crosby and Co, London 1804 - Vividly illustrated English translations of Ovid's Ars Amatoria, Remedia Amoris, and Amores, the classic Roman guides to finding, keeping, and (when necessary) recovering from a lover, with practical guidance for every reader: "The men are arm'd, and for the fight prepare; / And now we must instruct and arm the fair. / Both sexes, well appointed, take the field, / And, mighty Love, determine which shall yield." Featured translators include John Dryden and William Congreve. The neoclassical engravings by William Hopwood, the editor affirms, "have been selected with the greatest attention to moral propriety," even if Ovid himself "has been rather too warm in the colouring of his favourite subject." A near-fine copy of a diverting book, uncommon with colored plates. Octavo, twentieth-century russet morocco, earlier spine laid down, raised bands, spine compartments decorated in gilt, boards ruled in gilt with decorative cornerpieces, gilt dentelles, marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. Illustrated with six hand-colored engraved plates by William Hopwood. Publisher's advertisements bound at rear. Faint discoloration to boards, lightest occasional foxing. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Die Letten in Kurland oder Vertheidigung meines Vaterlandes gegen die Angriffe von G. Merkel in dessen Letten. Kurlands Edlen gewidmet.

      - Leipzig, J. B. Hirschfeld 1804. 8vo. X,+ 276,+ (2) pp. Foxing and some minor spotting. Contemporary paper boards, spine with red labels. With the library stamp of Heindsker on the title leaf and of Bibliothek Normhusen [Nurmhusen] on front fly-leaf. Winkelmann 4017. A reply to Garlieb Merkel?s important ?Die Letten vorzüglich in Liefland am Ende des philosophischen Jahrhunderts?, that was published in 1796 and again in 1800. In the book Merkel described the miserable life of the latvian peasantry and the atrocities of the Baltic German landowners. It caused a great scandal among the aristocray in Livonia, and Merkel had to flee to Germany, where his book had gained a considerable popularity. Georg Friedrich von Fircks (1780-1843) was a native of Curland and his book is in particular a defence of the nobility in Curland against the attack of Merkel. The castle of Nurmhusen (Nurmui a), built in the beginning of the 17th century, is one of the last castles built by the Teutonic Orden in Lettland and the home of family von Fircks!

        Modo de hacer la operacion cesarea despues de muerta la madre.

      Madrid, n.pr., 1804. - Folio (29.5 x 20.5 cm.), unbound. Marginal wormhole in upper margin (1.5 cm.), not affecting text; pinpoint wormhole in text, touching 1-2 letters per page. In very good condition. Date at end (13 April) supplied in manuscript, with a rubric. (2 ll.) *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION[?] of these brief instructions for performing a caesarean section to save a baby after the mother has died, including how to tell whether the woman is dead, what instruments are necessary ("un bisturí cortante por la convexîdad, y otro que termine en boton, y en su defecto una navaja ó cortaplumas son los únicos instrumentos que se necesitan" - a scalpel, or failing that a razor or a penknife), and how to make the incisions. Baptism is to be done even before the umbilical cord is tied off. A few possible complications are mentioned, but generally the instructions are simple and straightforward, so that laymen can perform them if no surgeon is available.The instructions were issued on October, 25, 1803, by the Real Colegio de San Carlos in Madrid, the school of surgery and medicine established in 1780 by D. Carlos III. (It eventually became the school of medicine at the University of Madrid.) We are aware only of this edition of 1804, probably printed in Madrid, and one of 1805 with certifications from Buenos Aires (a quarto with 7 pp.), of which a copy exists in the National Library of Medicine.According to Aristides A. Moll in Aesculapius in Latin America (pp. 163-4), the earliest caesarean sections in the New World were performed in Mexico in 1779 and 1795, both post-mortem; the earliest performed on a live woman dates to 1820 in Venezuela. Moll also notes that in Mexico, Viceroy Bucareli and Archbishop Núñez de Haro urged caesarean sections as a religious duty, to be performed - if necessary by laymen - on any pregnant woman who died: hence the emphasis on immediate baptism. Moll also mentions what is presumably the decree printed here: "A Spanish royal decree of 1804 prescribed when the section should be performed, the measures to be taken to ascertain whether the patient was dead, and authorized even laymen, if no physician was at hand, to operate."*** Not in Palau. Aristides A. Moll, Aesculapius in Latin America, pp. 163-4. Not in Garrison & Morton (1991). Not located in Copac, which has a work of the same title printed in Buenos Aires, [1805].

Sraffa 3233. An important commentary on Smith's Wealth of Nations>. 'Specifically, Lauderdale asserts that: (1) the maximisation of private riches does not lead to maximum public wealth and welfare; (2) labour is not the cause of value or an adequate measure of new value; (3) division of labour is not a major factor in economic growth; (4) parsimony and saving are frequently a public detriment as they may lead to over- investment and a capital glut; and (5) government tax revenues applied to rapid debt reduction will reduce aggregate consumption, deflate profits and capital values, and result in economic distress.' (New Palgrave> 3, p.137). 'To Lauderdale belongs the credit of having been the first to put forward a connected theory on the nature of profit, in the form of a theory, and not of scattered observations. Lauderdale's importance in the history of economics lies not in his conclusions but in the fact that he was the first in England to consider systematically the fundamental conceptions on which the science is based. In this respect alone he is in advance of Adam Smith.' (Palgrave (1926)> II, p.574).

        1804 Benjamin Bell System of Surgery MEDICINE Amputation Illustrated 4v SET

      Troy, N.Y. : Printed by O. Penniman and Co., 1804. - 1804 Benjamin Bell System of Surgery MEDICINE Amputation Illustrated 4v SET 115 INCREDIBLE Copper Engravings / Troy NT ed Benjamin Bell (1749 – 1806) is considered to be the first Scottish scientific surgeon. He is commonly described as the father of the Edinburgh school of surgery, or the first of the Edinburgh scientific surgeons. A System of Surgery appeared in six volumes between 1783 and 1788. By 1801 no fewer than seven editions had been published, and it went on to Italian, French, Spanish, German and three American editions. It was popular was because it was comprehensive; made use of up-to-date published material from all over Europe, and because of Bell's reputation as a surgeon. Bell was an advocate of the routine use of opium to relieve post-operative pain, stating "to be able to alleviate the misery of those who are obliged to submit to dangerous operations must afford the biggest gratification to every practitioner."

Loss to portions of thirteen leaves, affecting some text, reinforced with tape. Dust-soiling to titlepage, dampstaining to some leaves toward end of text. Lacking pp.19-30. A battered copy of a great rarity. An extraordinarily rare account of travels in Louisiana, the Mississippi Valley, and the Illinois-Ohio country, especially interesting in that the travels practically coincide with the Louisiana Purchase. The work has been attributed to either Wante or G. Boucher de la Richardiere. "The author - whoever he was - travelled extensively throughout the lower Mississippi Valley" - Howes. "There is also much on the Illinois-Ohio country, but the body of the work has to do with the Louisiana Cession" - Eberstadt. Incomplete but quite rare, as Howes accorded it a "b" rating. The great Simon Shwartz library of Louisiana material had a copy, sold for $15 in 1926, in blue morocco with an inked name on the titlepage. This is perhaps an additional Shwartz copy not auctioned at the time. The only other copy we can find any record of selling is that listed by the Eberstadts in 1953. HOWES W87, "b." SABIN 101246.

        Codice di Napoleone il Grande per il Regno d’Italia

      Luosi Giuseppe, - Un volume in 4to grande; elegante legatura in mezza pelle dell'epoca con tassello e titolo in oro al dorso, bellissimi tagli marmorizzati; pp. XXXVI, 633, (1). Testo in italiano, francese e latino stampato su due colonne. Ex-libris inciso dell'epoca C.G. Munarini. Qualche lieve fioritura sparsa, ma ottima copia.EDIZIONE UFFICIALE della versione italiana, curata da Giuseppe Luosi, del Code de Napoléon, il codice civile dei Francesi, che fu promulgato il 21 marzo del 1804. Il codice fu pubblicato nello stesso anno anche in formati tipografici minori e in altre città italiane.I lavori di codificazione erano cominciati sotto la Rivoluzione, ma fu Napoleone che li portò a termine, ponendo di fatto termine al diritto comune. Ad esso fecero seguito il codice di procedura civile (1806), il codice di commercio (1807), il codice di procedura penale (1808) e il codice penale (1810).Tra il 1804 e il 1809 il Code civil entrò in vigore in quasi tutti i territori della penisola italiana. Fu un fatto di rilevanza storica straordinaria, perché grazie ad esso cessarono di esistere le consuetudini locali, gli statuti, i vincoli di feudalità e i fedecommessi che per secoli avevano caratterizzato la vita del nostro paese. Il Codice di Napoleone il Grande costituì poi la base del codice civile stilato dopo l'Unità d'Italia.Promotore della traduzione in italiano e in latino del codice francese e responsabile della sua introduzione nel Regno italico fu Giuseppe Luosi, dal 1805 Gran Giudice e Ministro della Giustizia. Terminata nei primi giorni del 1806, la versione italiana fu presentata a Napoleone, che si trovava a Monaco di Baviera, da una delegazione capeggiata dallo stesso Luosi. Il nuovo codice entrò in vigore nel Regno italico il 1 aprile del 1806.Giuseppe Luosi, originario di Mirandola, studiò legge presso l'Università di Modena, dove ebbe come maestro B. Valdrighi, autore del Codice di leggi promulgato dal duca Francesco III nel 1771.Conseguita la laurea nel 1776, egli praticò fino al 1796 la professione di avvocato e notaio presso la sua città natale. Accanto a questa attività principale rivestì anche vari incarichi amministrativi.Nel 1796, coll'arrivo delle truppe napoleoniche, Luosi, che già in precedenza era stato un propugnatore delle idee riformatrici, intraprese una rapida carriera politica, venendo nominato governatore dell'Emilia. Trasferitosi a Milano nel 1807, Napoleone lo pose a capo del ministero della giustizia e della polizia. Presidente del Direttorio dal 1798 e membro della Consulta dal 1800, nel 1805 fu nominato Gran Giudice e Ministro della Giustizia, carica che mantenne senza interruzioni fino al 1814.Dopo l'entrata in vigore del codice da lui tradotto e promosso, Luosi si adoperò per farlo accettare e per attuare i programmi enunciati nelle sedute del Consiglio di Stato. Diede poi impulso alla redazione degli altri codici, anch'essi mutuati dai corrispettivi francesi, ad eccezione del codice di procedura penale, che fu autonomamente redatto nel 1807 sotto la supervisione di G.D. Romagnosi.Nello stesso anno Luosi pubblicò a Brescia in sei volumi la Collezione dei travagli sul codice penale per Regno d'Italia, contenente, oltre al progetto, le osservazioni dei tribunali e dei procuratori regi.Per i suoi servigi Napoleone lo colmò di titoli ed onori. Fu fatto conte nel 1809, senatore del Regno e membro del R. Istituto di scienze, lettere ed arti nel 1810. Dopo il ritorno degli Austriaci, egli si ritirò a vita privata. Morì a Milano nel 1830.
