        Observations on Some of the Most Frequent and Important Diseases of the Heart; on Aneurism of the Thoracic Aorta; on Preternatural Pulsation in the Epigastric Region; and on the Unusual Origin and Distribution of Some of the Large Arteries of the Human Body. Illustrated by Cases

      Edinburgh: Printed by Murihead, 1809. Modern half calf with marble boards. Very Good. 8vo (21.9 x 13.3cm) Collation: iv,[2], 322pp. Binding in very good condition. Text has minor to moderate marginal foxing and spotting, occasionally into text area. Burns was a keen observer and made a number of important observations before the discovery of auscultation and other adjunct methods of diagnosis. He had the courage of his convictions and openly disagreed with his elders and predecessors. He may have been an early person who observed a thrombus in a coronary artery. (Willius and Dry, p. 111) ?"In some, as in the case of Mr. Bellamy, dissected by Mr. Paytherus, there [the coronary arteries?'] inner surface has been found crusted over with a lymphatic exudation, ?"not very dissimilar to the matter which forms on the inside of the trachea in croum,?" and in most of them, the heart has been flabby and fat, such a state of arteries of the heart, must impair the function of that organ.?" (Burns, p. 137-138; GM 2889) ?"Although Burns died when only thirty-two, he nevertheless made several important contributions to cardiology. Burns never received a medical degree but lectured on anatomy in Glasgow and assisted his brother John (see No. 1311), who was surgeon to the Royal Infirmary and the first professor of surgery at Glasgow. Not all of Burns ideas were correct in light of today's knowledge, but his concept of the heart was surprisingly modern as indicated by his statement that "The heart, from the intricacy of its structure, and from its incessant action, is liable to many diseases, and these from the importance of the function of this organ, are at all times highly alarming. Some of them are extremely insidious in their commencement, are attended with obscure and perplexing symptoms, and in their result are almost uniformly and speedily fatal" (p. 1). He was among the first to suggest that angina pectoris occurs as a result of coronary obstruction. Burns classified heart diseases into three groups and recognized six types of congenital cardiac anomalies. He described unilateral paralysis of the diaphragm caused by pressure on the phrenic nerve by an aneurysm in the thorax, discussed the rare condition of heart atrophy, and commented on pericardial adhesions and the symptoms and pathological findings of combined mitral and aortic disease.?" (Heirs of Hippocrates, no. 1362) (Cushing B869; GM 2738; Osler 2188; Wellcome II, p. 276)

Hiler. - Das Aquarell stellt Andreas Hofer dar, unten mit folgender Bezeichnung, in Tuschfeder ausgeführt: 1809. Logierte hier Andre Hofer Ober Comandant Von Tirol und Voralberg. Die ursprüngliche Signatur des Künstlers an der linken unteren Einfassungslinie ist hier abgeschnitten, die vom Künstler in kalligraphischer Tuschfeder ausgeführte Datierung und Bezeichnung ist jedoch unterhalb des Bildrandes montiert. - Dargestellt ist im Vordergrund Andreas Hofer an einem Felsen mit Baum gelehnt, bekleidet mit grüner Jacke, rotem Hemd, dunkler Kniebundhose, Stiefeln und Schwert, im Hintergrund wohl der Sandhof in St. Leonhard im Südtiroler Passeiertal. - Die beiden beigefügten Tiroler Trachten-Umriss-Radierungen sind in leuchtendem Originalkolorit ausgeführt; sie stammen sehr wahrscheinlich aus dem Album 'Trachten aus Tirol' von Kapeller. Sie zeigen einen Jäger und eine Kellnerin in Tiroler Tracht. Besonderes Verdienst erwarb sich (Josef Anton Kapeller) als Zeichner einer vier Hefte umfassenden Folge von tirolischen Trachten, die er in seinem Kunstverlag herausgab. Die meisten hatte Simon Warenberger radiert Das Innsbrucker Ferdinandeum bewahrt von ihm die Originalzeichnungen zu diesen Trachtenbildern (vgl.

De litograferade porträtten, som ej nämns av Setterwall, föreställer Karl XIV Johan respektive kronprins Oscar och är efter teckningar av Delorieux och litograferade av C. Motte. Detta är en av de första utpräglat välvilliga arbetena på franska om Karl XIV Johan.

        Proofs of the Corruption of Gen. James Wilkinson, and of his Connexion with Aaron Burr.

      Philadelphia: Wm. Hall, Jun. & Geo. W. Pierie, 1809. - 8vo., (8 7/8 x 5 ¼ inches). (Lightly and evenly toned throughout). Contemporary half tan calf, marbled boards, the spine in six compartments with five raised bands, black morocco gilt lettering piece in one and decorated in the rest (extremities a bit worn). First edition. This contemporary account is one of the best-documented works on Burr's plot to seize Texas and other Spanish territory west of the Mississippi. It is an indispensable volume, filled with many primary documents, including material relating to Texas. In it, Clark strives to show that Wilkinson was in the pay of Spain and an accomplice of Burr in the treason. According to A. P. Whitaker, it is "a remarkably accurate account of Wilkinson's dealing with the Spaniards. All that the book lacks is.the proofs. These were in the Spanish archives, and have since been found there." Clark came to New Orleans in 1786, where he achieved prominence and became connected with Gen. Wilkinson, but later broke with him. "Gives much evidence of the General's treachery" (Streeter Sale III: 1694). Howes C431 ("aa"); Sabin 13265.

        ENGRAVED PORTRAIT OF WILLIAM DRAYTON, OF SOUTH CAROLINA].

      [Charleston. 1809?]. - Circular image, 5.6 cm. in diameter, on square sheet of paper. A fine copy. Charles B.J.F. de Saint-Mémin was a French emigree who came to America in 1793. In 1796 he began producing portraits using a physiognotrace, then transferring the image to an engraving using a pantograph. Each patron would receive the original, a series of engravings, and the original copper plate. Impressively true to life, Saint-Mémin's portraits were in great demand, and he executed some 900 of them, including many of the leading citizens of the republic, until he returned to France in 1810. This fine portrait is of William Drayton, not John Drayton as is sometimes asserted. Although the caption bears John Drayton's name, the portrait is of a very young man, probably in his early twenties, and could not possibly be the stout governor who was in his forties at the time. A lawyer, William Drayton (1776-1846) became a colonel in the War of 1812 and later a prominent Congressman from South Carolina, and was an opponent of nullification. Miles, ST.-MEMIN (Washington, 1994), 275.

        BRINDES PER ON DISNA' ALLA CASSINNA DI POMM El di&#39; 14 Mag 1809.

      s.l. s.e. (1809). In-16 (mm. 172x105), cartoncino muto coevo, pp, 12. Rarissima "prima edizione" di questo "brindes" che è contenuto nella ?"Raccolta completa delle poesie inedite di Carlo Porta?", stampata a Lugano nel 1860. Cfr. Parenti ?"Prime ediz. italiane?", p. 412 - Medici "Vecchie osterie milanesi" (Como, 1933), p. 87-89: ?"Alcuni studiosi milanesi (1) non ritengono del grande poeta lombardo questa lirica, che accese tante dispute sull?'opportunismo politico del Porta.. E qui è bene far preceder una paginetta di storia. L?'Austria nel 1809 pretese di sorprendere Napoleone movendogli d?'improvviso duplice guerra, sul Danubio e in Italia (il Vicerè Eugenio Beauharnais fu spedito sull?'Isonzo contro l?'arciduca Giovanni, avendone la peggio). A Wagram invece le forze unite di Napoleone ebbero il sopravvento ed operarono miracoli. Si improvvisarono allora feste e banchetti. A un pranzo alla "Cascina dei Pomi", nel sobborgo di Milano (scrive il Barbiera), allora famosa per le gite amorose ed epicuree, Carlo Porta lesse un brindisi che ritrae quelle paure, quegli sbigottimenti all?'idea di tornare alle sevizie già patite sotto gli Austro Russi vittoriosi dei francesi (nel 1799) ed è ebbro di giubilo, per la vittoria?". Il brindisi finisce con un osanna a Napoleone ?"Viva al nost Imperator!.. - Sconosciuto a Orlando Cecco e a Bezzola. (1) Giuseppe Bernardoni, eccellente poeta e amico di Carlo Porta, secondo Gaetano Crespi e il Salvioni, sarebbe l?'autore di questo brindisi. Pure Dante Isella lo attribuisce al Bernardoni. Con uniformi arross. e qualche lieve fiorit. ma complessivam. discreto esemplare.

        ROMANTIC TALES

      New-York: Printed for M. & W. Ward, 149, Pearl-street,. 1809. 12mo, two volumes: pp. [1-5] 6347 [348-350: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank]; [1-5] 6-333 [334: blank],. nineteenth-century three-quarter calf and marbled boards.. Calf worn at edges, boards scuffed, outer joints tender, some foxing. to text block, a good set overall. (#110116). First U.S. edition. Lewis's Gothic sampler, interspersed with nightmare and graveyard verse, "contains examples of oriental, Germanic, medieval, and monastic Gothicism in both the terrific and horrific modes. Robert D. Spector observes that although these tales are pure Gothic, Lewis 'had toned down the ghastly, supernatural elements which had made THE MONK a sensational, although infamous, success.' Yet, Lewis's fondness for an ugly macabre as well as a sadistic supernatural is still very clearly in evidence. In fact, Poe's title, 'Tales of the Grotesque and Arabesque,' could serve as a title for the Gothic variety of Lewis's collection. As may be judged from the modern reprintings of several stories, each of the prose tales is long enough to qualify as a Gothic novella. In their order, the tales are: MISTRUST: OR, BLANCH AND OSBRIGHT, A FEUDAL ROMANCE (medieval Gothic adapted from a drama by von Kleist, THE FAMILY OF SCHROFFENSTEIN); THE ANACONDA (an East Indian story using the natural horror associated with a serpent); THE FOUR FACARDINS (a Gothic Marchen with touches of the Schauerromantik); MY UNCLE'S GARRET WINDOW (domestic or neighborhood Gothic whose theme bears comparison with Hawthorne's story of connubial espionage, 'Wakefield'); AMORASSAN: OR, THE SPIRIT OF THE FROZEN OCEAN (orientalized Gothic containing strong reminders of Beckford's VATHEK). Although THE ANACONDA has a quality of cruel horror which might have appealed to Ambrose Bierce and THE FOUR FACARDINS is overrun with Schauerromantik effects, the story which seems the most conventionally Gothic and which bears the closest resemblance to the repellent excitement of THE MONK is MISTRUST: OR, BLANCHE AND OSBRIGHT." - Frank, The First Gothics 247. ROMANTIC TALES was a very popular collection which was more than once reprinted in its entirety and favorite tales were published sometimes separately, sometimes with other pieces by Lewis, and sometimes even with pieces not from his pen. Summers, pp. 484-86. Block, The English Novel 1740-1850, p. 139. Shaw and Shoemaker 17909. Bleiler (1978), p. 124. Not in Reginald (1979; 1992).

        LE KAIRE. Vue d'une ancienne mosquée située près de Bâb el Nasr (E. M. Vol. I Pl. 28), planche dessinée par Dutertre, gravée par Delignon, eau-forte par Réville & Normand

      Imprimerie Impériale 1809 - - Imprimerie Impériale, Paris 1809-1828, 53,5 x 70,5 cm. - Gravure originale in plano à l'eau-forte, non rognée, extraite de l''Edition Impériale' de la Description de l'Egypte ou Recueil des observations et recherches faites en Egypte pendant l'expédition française, publié par les ordres de Sa Majesté l'Empereur Napoléon le Grand. Réalisée entre 1802 et 1830 et publiée entre 1809 et 1828, elle fut tirée à 1000 exemplaires offerts aux institutions. Papier vergé au filigrane 'Egypte ancienne et moderne' visible par transparence.Cette gravure présente une superbe vue d'une ancienne mosquée située près de Bâb el Nasr. Au premier plan, différents groupes de personnages présentent des scènes de la vie quotidienne. On y voit notamment des soldats français, une vendeuse assise au milieu de ses paniers, un personnage guidant des dromadaires, etc.Infimes piqûres marginales affectant très légèrement la planche, un léger manque angulaire en marge gauche, légère décharge d'encre au dos, sinon excellent état de fraîcheur et de conservation. La monumentale première édition de la Description de l'Egypte en 13 volumes comportait 892 planches dont 72 coloriées, parmi lesquelles 9 volumes concernaient l'Antiquité. Les autres volumes traitaient de l'Histoire Naturelle et de l'Egypte moderne car Napoléon Bonaparte avait emmené avec lui une commission de savants de toutes disciplines si bien que, disait-on, dans sa description était emmagasiné 'le plus riche musée de l'Univers'. Cet ouvrage fut rédigé en partie par la baron Dominique Vivant-Denon, avant que ce dernier soit nommé directeur général du Musée Napoléon au Louvre. Plus de 80 artistes et 400 graveurs furent engagés pour ce projet titanesque. Les dimensions des planches exceptionnellement grandes nécessitèrent la création d'une presse spéciale et d'un meuble spécifique pour les conserver.! [Attributes: First Edition]
