        Sur la colorisation des corps (66: pp.152-167 290-317 67: pp.5-25 113-151, 3 Taf.).

      Ann. de Chim. 1, 65-67. - A Prais, Chez Bernard, 1808, 8, 336 pp., 1 Taf. 336, 2 Taf. 336 pp., 1 Taf., 2 abweichende Halbledereinbände der Zeit frisches Exemplar. First Print - Hassenfratz defined the term "complementary color" !It was the physics professor Jean Henri Hassenfratz (1755-1827) who gave the most thorough treatment of color and the most radical overhaul of Newtonian theory. His first critique of Newtonian color was given as a lecture at the Cours révolutionnaire in 1794, and was then printed in the Journal de l'École Polytechnique. He began with the same phenomenon as Monge, that is, the blue shadows of sunrise. But then continued on that there was nothing particular about sunrise. Rather, every shadow that one observed was colored in some way, even those of high noon that looked perfectly black. Hassenfratz investigated the shadows produced by various light sources, and found that they took on every color of the prism. Like Monge, he concluded that these colors could not be solely the property of the physical particles. Hassenfratz also noticed that not only were the shadows colored, but also they seemed to come in complementary pairs. He observed the situation when there were multiple light sources in play, competing with the light of the sun or atmosphere. In this case, there were anywhere from two to six different colors visible in the shadows. If there were two colors, Hassenfratz claimed, it was always the case that these two colors were complements of one another. If there were three colors, one of them was always the complement of the two others. And so on for any number of shadows. One of these colors would always depend on the color of whatever object was providing the reflected light. For example, if the room was dominated by light reflecting off of slate surfaces, the shadows would be bluish. If the light was reflected off of plants or trees, the shadows would look green. All of this made sense, and Hassenfratz admitted that it could be easily predicted by current understandings of color and shadows. What was less predictable, however, was the presence of the second complementary color, which existed even in the absence of any body capable of reflecting that color.Hassenfratz was careful to define the term "complementary color," because this was one of the first instances of its use in the French language. He pointed out that the notion of complementary colors did not in any way oppose Newton's claim that white light was made up of an infinite number of homogeneous colors. This part of Newton's work, found in book one of the Opticks, was entirely compatible with his observations. It was the second part of Newton's color theory, found in Book 2 of the Opticks, with which Hassenfratz disagreed. This part had to do with the causes of color generation, and particularly the analogy with Newton's rings.Hassenfratz published the full run of his critique "On the Coloring of Bodies" in the 1808 edition of the Annales. "Optics," he lamented, "has remained stationary since the publication of Newton's experiments on light." The authority of the great man, he claimed, prevented serious research on even the most problematic aspects of the theory. In particular, Hassenfratz proposed to examine the central analogy posited between the natural color of objects and those created in the air gaps of Newton's rings.Hassenfratz proposed to test Newton's theory by looking at the spectra of light that had passed through colored glass. According to Newton's theory, the spectrum of light that has been reflected from a colored body must be the same as the spectrum of a thin film of the same color. As the rules involved in putting these mixtures of light together were very precise, there were only certain ......"

        Nouvelle méthode pour reconnaître les maladies internes de la poitrine par la percussion de cette cavité. Ouvrage traduit du latin et commenté par J.N. Corvisart.

Inventum novum ex percussione thoracis humani et signo abstrusos interni pectoris morbos detegendi. Vienna 1761 "is one of the greatest of all medical classics and contains the results of Auenbrugger's experience with a new method of physical diagnosis thoracic percussion. In the book, Auenbrugger describes the technique of percussion and the sounds made in various diseased conditions of the chest. Although his discovery was extremely important, it attracted little attention from the medical community. Stoll, then director of the medical clinic at the Spanish Hospital, tried the new method and praised it in one of his books. After that, no more was heard of it until the late eighteenth century when Corvisart, while studying the works of Stoll, found a reference to Auenbrugger's discovery and began practicing percussion. Corvisart published a French translation of Inventum novum, the year before Auenbrugger died. Although modern methods of clinical diagnosis have to a great extent replaced manual percussion, Auenbrugger's discovery is one of the milestones in the history of medicine." (Heirs of Hippocrates).Malgré la traduction de Rozière de La Chassagne (1770), la découverte d'Auenbrugger passa inaperçue à son époque, puis tomba dans l'oubli. Elle "ne devait attirer l'attention que trente-huit ans plus tard, lorsque Corvisart de nouveau l'eut traduit et y eut ajouté ses commentaires." (Hahn, Hist. de la médecine et du livre médical, p. 264).

        Analyse d'un cours du Docteuer Gall, ou physiologie et anatomie du cerveau d'après son système.

      - A Paris, Chez Giguet et Michaud, 1808, 8°, 254 pp., Halbledereinband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe einer der wichtigsten autorisierten Quellen! - - Bevor Franz Joseph "im März 1808 den entscheidenden, wenn auch letztlich vergeblichen, Schritt dazu tut, wird er nicht müde, der interessierten Öffentlichkeit, und dazu gehört der Fachkundige so gut wie der aufgeschlossene oder bloß sensationslüsterne Laie, seine neue Lehre nahezubringen. Aus der Reihe der zahlreichen Unternehmungen und Veranstaltungen, die diesem Zweck dienen, soll hier lediglich der erste große hirnphysiologische Kurs erwähnt werden, den Gall am 15.1.1808 eröffnet und über den von allen Pariser Zeitungen die Gazette de France in vierzehn Folgen, nämlich vom 21.1. bis 23-2.1808, wohl am ausführlichsten berichtet. Diese Berichte stammen aus der Feder des Mediziners Nicolas-Philibert Adelon (1782-1862), eines Gail- Anhängers, der sie, erweitert, verbessert und von Gail gebilligt, umgehend als "Analyse d'un cours du docteur Gail, ou physiologie et anatomie du cerveau d'après son Système." Paris 1808 in Buchform herausbringt. - - Sie können deshalb in jenen turbulenten Monaten, in denen sich Zustimmung und Widerspruch aufs heftigste an Gall entzünden und ihm immer wieder schrill der abwegige Materialismusvorwurf gemacht wird, als authentische Darstellung seiner neuen Wissenschaft gelten. Adelon weiß auch schon zu berichten: "et d'ailleurs le public jouira bientôt d'un travail de M. Gail lui-même, sur la partie anatomique de son système; qu'il doit développer incessamment dans un rapport à l'Institut." Den kranioskopischen Aspekt seiner Lehre will Gail dabei also aussparen, um, wie er wohl spürt, nicht unnötige Ablehnung herauszufordern. - - Am 14.3.1808 legen Gail und Spurzheim dem Institut National de France den von Adelon angekündigten Bericht handschriftlich vor. Noch im Oktober desselben Jahres erscheint dieser Bericht (nebst dem Urteil, das die Gutachter des Instituts darüber gefällt haben, sowie Galls und Spurzheims Kritik an diesem Urteil) auf französisch und deutsch auch im Druck: "Recherches sur le système nerveux en général, et sur celui du cerveau en particulier; mémoire présénte à l'Institut de France, le 14 mars 1808; suivi d'observations sur le rapport qui en a été fait à cette compagnie par ses commissaires. Par F.J. Gall et G. Spurzheim." Paris 1809. bzw. "Untersuchungen über die Anatomie des Nervensystems überhaupt, und des Gehirns insbesondere. Ein dem Französischen Institute überreichtes Memoire von Gail und Spurzheim. Nebst dem Berichte der H.H. Commissaire des Institutes und den Bemerkungen der Verfasser über diesen Bericht." Paris, Straßburg 1809. - - Beide Ausgaben liegen also früher im Handel vor, als es das ausgedruckte Erscheinungsdatum vermuten läßt. Wie könnte Gail sonst auch schon am 20.1.1809 an seinen Freund Andreas Streicher schreiben: "Ich habe durch Hr. v. NEUMANN zwey Exemplare der deutschen Edition von meiner Antwort an das franz. Institut an meine Frau geschickt, wovon das eine für Sie bestimmt ist" (Briefe Galls (wie Anm. 551, S. 24)." Langen, Carl Friedrich Frhr. von: Reiten über Hindernisse. Zürich ; New York : Olms 1996 (Documenta hippologica), pp.101-102 - - Vgl. dazu u.a. die Gazette de France ab Nr. 312 vom 8.11.1807, ferner den als Quelle hier höchst wichtigen J.-B. Demangeon, S.

Einbände etwas berieben und bestoßen, Seiten gut erhalten und kaum vergilbt. Mit je einem Ex-Libris (Otto und Liane Zimber) am vorderen Innendeckel, sowie jeweils handschriftlichen Namenszügen (Eckstein) am vorderem fliegenden Vorsatzblatt (in Bd 2 auch am Innendeckel). ADB 36,538ff. BBKL 11,27ff. Kindler 13,5540. Erstausgabe der zu ihrer Zeit aufsehenerregenden kritischen Schrift des David Friedrich Strauß (1808-1874), protestantischer Theologe und Philosoph, zum überlieferten Jesusbild. Das Werk wurde von den Philosophen und Theologen der Zeit sehr kontroversiell aufgenommen und gilt als eines der bekanntesten aber auch umstrittensten Werke des 19. Jahrhunderts. Strauss interpretiert darin die (vermeintliche) Geschichtlichkeit der Evangelienbücher als mythische Darstellung urchristlicher Ideen. "..Kein theologisches Werk, seit den Wolfenbüttler Fragmenten, hat gegen seinen Urheber einen solchen Sturm entfesselt, wie das Leben Jesu. Die wissenschaftliche Arbeit der protestantischen Theologen drehte sich Jahre lang fast nur um dieses Buch. Hunderte von Entgegnungen jedes Umfangs erschienen, von allen Standpunkten und in allen Tonarten, in der Regel aber mit leidenschaftlicher Gehässigkeit, wurde es bestritten.." (ADB).

        Tableaux de la nature, ou considerations sur les déserts, sur la physionomie des végétaux, et sur les cataractes de l'Orénoque . traduits de l'allemand, par J.B.B. Eyriès.

      Paris, Chez F. Schoell, 1808. - 2 volumes. 12°, contemporary French acid-stained calf (light wear), covers with gilt floral roll-tooled border, flat spines gilt with red and green lettering pieces, gilt letter (four pinpoint wormholes at head of spine on volume II), marbled endleaves and edges. Occasional slight browning and spotting. Overall an attractively bound set, in very good to fine condition. Contemporary signature on half-titles ("Jean J. Ruiz"?). (2 ll.), x, 240 pp.; (2 ll.), 240 pp. *** First edition in French of Humboldt's Ansichten der Natur, published earlier the same year in Tübingen. Volume I has a divisional title on p. (3): "Considérations sur les steppes et les déserts". Volume II has a divisional title on p. (1): "Idées sur la physionomie des végétaux". The descriptions, which range from deserts to volcanoes to botany, combine rigorous science with Humboldt's emotional and esthetic responses to nature.From 1799 to 1804, under Spanish auspices, the Prussian Alexander von Humboldt (Friedrich Wilhelm Heinrich Alexander von Humboldt, 1769-1859) and the Frenchman Aimé Bonpland traveled extensively in Latin America. Starting at Cumaná in Venezuela, they explored the course of the Orinoco River, traveling some 2,000 miles before returning to the Caribbean to spend some months in Cuba. Then they set out from Cartagena up the Magdalena River, across the Cordillera to Quito, Lima, and Callao via the headwaters of the Amazon. Finally they spent a year in Mexico before returning to Europe. The description of their scientific discoveries, published in more than thirty folio- and quarto-size volumes from 1805 to 1834, made major contributions to botany, physical geography, meteorology, and more. The translator of this work, Jean-Baptiste Benoît Eyriès (1767-1846), was a geographer in his own right.*** Sabin 33704.

        Preghiere recitate, e cantate nel Tempio degli Ebrei di Livorno il di 15. Agosto 1808. Ricorrendo il faustissimo giorno natalizio di S. M. I., e R. l'Augustissimo Napoleone I, Imperatore de'Francesi, Re d'Italia, e Protettore della Confederazione del Reno. 5568 al computo Ebraico [with facing title in Hebrew]

      17, 6 pp. Large 4to, fine cont. red sheep (small portion of spine with defect), sides panelled in gilt, flat spine gilt, a.e.g. Livorno: Pei Masi e Sahadun, 1808. First edition. A very rare collection of poems, benedictions, and prayers, printed in Hebrew with Italian translations on facing pages, celebrating the birthday of Napoleon prepared by the Jewish community of Livorno, the wealthy seaport city of Tuscany. Jews first came to Livorno in 1583 and, from the beginning, enjoyed extensive rights and privileges, including complete jurisdiction both in civil and in criminal cases. The Jewish court was abolished in 1808 when Tuscany was incorporated into the French empire. In spite of this temporary abrogation, the Jews of Livorno never suffered from persecutions nor restrictions until the 20th century. One of the texts was translated by Jacob Nunes-Vais, "Primo Rabino dell'Università." This is a most unusual and handsome book, well printed on thick paper and finely bound. WorldCat locates only the ICU copy.

Sargino has a mock-heroic flavour, emphasizing comic elements over serious ones and giving buffo characters roles at least as weighty as those of the hero and heroine...

        The proceedings of a General Court Martial, held at Chelsea Hospital, on Thursday, January 28, 1808, and continued, by adjournment, till Tuesday, March 15, for the trial of Lieut. Gen. Whitelocke, late Commander-in-Chief of the forces in South America. Taken in Short-hand by Mr. Gurney. With the defence, copied from the original, by permission of General Whitelocke; also all the documents produced on the trial. Vol.I. [ - Vol.II].

      London: printed for J.C. Mottley Portsmouth; published by Longman &c. 1808 - Two vols., 8vo., two folding engraved maps, (8) + 438 + xxxix + (1) and (8) + 439-830pp., contemporary half calf over marbled boards, skilfully rebacked and labelled. A very good copy. First edition. General Whitelocke's court-martial was the inevitable consequence of his enormous and disastrous ill-judged, and ill-directed, campaign against Spanish forces in Buenos Aires and the Plate region of South America in May - July 1807. 'Whitelocke returned to England on 7 November 1807, and in January 1808 he was court-martialled at Chelsea. . The court martial took seven weeks, and Whitelocke faced four charges covering poor diplomacy, military incompetence, and negotiation of a shameful surrender, each barely relevant to what had happened. He was found guilty and was cashiered. His fault lay in taking on a task beyond his capacity, for which those who appointed him should have shared the blame'. [John D. Grainger in ODNB].

Embellished with seventeen elegant engravings. By Thomas Gilliland, .

      London: Printed for C. Chapple, Pall Mall, by B. McMillan, Bow Street, Covent Garden, Printer to His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales, 1808. First Edition. Paper-covered boards. Fine. First Edition. Complete in two volumes, paginated (somewhat irregularly) continuously. 12mo; xii, 622, 629-630; [3], 625-1048pp, with 17 engraved plates (conforming to directions to the binder, for placing the plates), comprising 4 views of theaters and 13 portraits. Dedicated to the Prince of Wales, later George IV. Recently rebound, in the style of the original, in pale blue paper-covered boards with cream-colored spine and title and volume paper lettering pieces; all edges speckled red. Internally, virtually perfect, the binding tight, straight and square, the pages and plates clean and crisp with the exception of the author's portrait in vol. 1, which is lightly foxed. A Very Fine example of a rare set. OCLC Number: 82435547. Little is known of Gilliland's life or career. But intriguingly, according to the ODNB, "Gilliland clearly made himself enemies." His major work, A Dramatic Synopsis, was significantly expanded and republished as The Dramatic Mirror, dated 1808 on the title-page, "but [it] may have appeared in 1807. . . . it contained a history of the stage, with accounts of actors from the time of Shakespeare onwards, and of playwrights from 1660. It was dedicated to the prince of Wales, and was venomously reviewed in The Satirist of January 1808. The reviewer's charges included plagiarism ('The original matter ? would lay in as small a space as its author's brains') and inconsistency, since Gilliland now praised Kemble [whom he had earlier lambasted]. The review claimed that Gilliland, 'during a recent season ? was wont to intrude himself into the greenroom of Drury-lane theatre', until he desisted in the face of a petition to the managers calling for his exclusion, 'signed by the most spirited of the performers' headed by Charles Mathews. Gilliland's alleged purpose was to spy 'upon the private conduct of public men' and to use their talk in his journalism, 'as he at that time had not been dismissed from the newspapers for want of talent'. The review called him the 'cast-off fag' and 'ci-devant scout' of Anthony Pasquin (pseudonym of John Williams).
