        Surgical Observations on Injuries of the Head and on miscellaneous Subjects.

      Philadelphia: Printed for Thomas Dobson, at the Stone Houise, No.41, South Second street, 1811, 8, 299, (1) pp., 1 Taf. "New Books, .. publ. Thomas Dobson" 2 pp., Halbereinband mit alten Deckeln, Rücken erneuert. First American Edition. First neurosurgical book printed in America! John Abernethy (1764-1831), a pupil of Percivall Pott and one of his successors as Surgeon at St. Bartholomew's, wrote one of the first separate monographs on head injuries in the beginning of the 19th century. In addition to outlining the same principles that had been formulated by Pott, Abernethy noted the occurrence of a fixed dilated pupil in a case of epiural hematoma. He felt this was an additional sign to distinguish compression of the brain from concussion, but he did not recognize the lateralizing significance of his observations. This work was published the following year in Philadelphia and is the first book on neurosurgical topic printed in America." Eugene S. Flamm. In: A Hist. of Neurosurgery (Ed. by Samuel H. Greenblatt), p.78 ..."It is difficult to ascertain the exact priority for suggesting carotid ligation. It was first used to control hemorrhage from traumatic laceration of the carotid artery. A particularly vivid surgical description is provide by John Abernethy." Eugene S. Flamm. In: : A Hist. of Neurosurgery (Ed. by Samuel H. Greenblatt), p.267"John Abernethy ligated a lacerated artery in a patient who was gored by an ox. While the patient died, the procedure attracted significant attention. Within a few years, and throughout the 19th century, there were numerous reports of successful cervical carotid artery ligation for the treatment of trauma and intracranial aneurysms."Issam A. Awad.

        ESSAI POLITIQUE SUR LE ROYAUME DE LA NOUVELLE-ESPAGNE...

      Paris: Chez F. Schoell, 1811. Five volumes. Large folding map in first volume; folding table in second volume. Contemporary diced calf, skillfully rebacked with original spines (gilt extra) laid down. Gift inscription, "R.M. Raiter [?] to Capt. S. Charters Jany 1828," and ownership inscription, "W. Stein Zacatecas 1842," on front pastedown of each volume. British bookseller's label on front pastedown on second volume. Armorial bookplate of Richard MeeRaikes on front pastedown of third volume. Clean tear in fold of map. Lacks the half titles, otherwise a very good, clean set. A founding work in the fields of political economy and economic geography. Humboldt spent five years in the Spanish dominions of the New World, from 1799 to 1804, and recorded his experiences in a series of works stretching over decades after his return to Europe. One of the first of these was the ESSAI POLITIQUE..., describing northern New Spain, particularly Mexico and the northern provinces, including California and the American Southwest. Howes writes that the work is "of superlative California importance," and Becker calls the volumes "detailed and thorough, containing much data that had never before appeared in print." "This important work...contains the most complete and accurate picture of the natural resources of Mexico then available, and in 1824 was declared by a representative of the Mexican government to have contributed to the reanimation of the active industry of the nation" - Hill. This copy is notable in having an early Mexican provenance, signed "W. Stein, Zacatecas, 1842," and in having the "Carte du Mexique," not called for in the text and usually found only in the separate atlas, bound into the first volume. The large folding map shows all of Mexico and the Southwest, and California. WAGNER-CAMP 7a:2. HOWES H786, "aa." HILL 843. STREETER SALE 196. SABIN 33713. REESE, BEST OF THE WEST 33.

        LETTER FROM COWLES MEAD, SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES OF THE MISSISSIPPI TERRITORY, ENCLOSING A COPY OF A PRESENTMENT AGAINST HARRY TOULMIN, JUDGE OF THE SUPERIOR COURT FOR THE WASHINGTON DISTRICT IN SAID TERRITORY, MADE BY THE GRAND JURY OF BALDWIN COUNTY

      Washington: R.C. Weightman, 1811. 7pp. Dbd. Very minimal foxing. One manuscript correction in text. Very good. A letter to Congress from the Mississippi Territory legislature, expressing their disapproval of Harry Toulmin. In 1810 insurrection broke out in West Florida, and leaders of the Tombigbee district (near present-day Mobile) sought to mobilize and occupy nearby Spanish holdings. Toulmin, previously tainted as a "tool" of James Wilkinson for skirting the prosecution of Aaron Burr, exercised the full authority of his position as superior court judge for the territory and prevented the use of force against the Spanish. Though he managed to prevent an armed conflict, his pacific actions made him extremely unpopular with his constituency, and many actively sought his removal. Toulmin survived their accusations and retained his post until 1819. Rare, OCLC locating only three copies. SHAW & SHOEMAKER 24150. OCLC 22194579. DAB XVIII, p.602.

        Le Nouveau Testament de Notre Seigneur Jésus Christ Imprimé sur l'édition de Paris, de l'année 1805, revue et corrigée avec soin d'après le texte grec

      Boston: chez les Libraires Associés (Lincoln & Edmands, imprimeurs). Very Good. 1811. First Edition Thus. Hardcover. 379, [1, colophon] & 4 pages; Contemporary full sheepskin leather, with faint decorative stained pattern on covers, flat spine paneled by simple gilt rules, red label lettered in gilt, edges decoratively stained yellow. 12mo, gathered in sixes (half-sheets). A - 2H6. 379, [1, colophon] & 4 pp. ["Books for Sale by John West & Co., ..."] This is a very good example of the first American edition of the Protestant text of the French New Testament of the Bible, the version translated by Jean-Frédéric Osterwald. Its publication followed by one year the publication, also in Boston, of the first American edition of any New Testament in French -- ["Le Nouveau Testament de Notre Seigneur Jésus Christ, en Français, sur la Vulgate -- translated by Isaac-Louis Le Maistre de Sacy. Boston: J.T. Buckingham, 1810. The so-called "Port-Royal Bible."] At the end, there is a four-page catalogue of books for sale by a number of booksellers in Boston and New England -- ["Valuable books for sale by John West & Co. William Wells, William Andrews, Oliver C. Greenleaf, Edward Cotton, Lincoln & Edmands, Munroe & Francis, James W. Burditt & Co. and West & Blake, Boston. William Hilliard, Cambridge, and E. Little & Co., Newburyport."] Since these two leaves are printed integrally with the text (as leaves 2H5 & 6), it seems logical that the booksellers specifically named in this interesting priced catalogue of books available are also the booksellers who shared the edition of this important Protestant New Testament. The printers are identified by their slug at the foot of the final page of the main text, otherwise blank: "Lincoln & Edmands, imprimeurs, no. 53, Cornhill, a` Boston." This is an excellently preserved, unmarked copy. The binding, almost certainly original, is missing a triangular chip at the head of the spine. There is a small part of the corner of the front free-endpaper torn away (no marks of any sort on this leaf). The title page and the next leaf show faint toning around the edges (transfers from the turn-under of the leather used in binding). There is also one leaf text leaf [Y6 = pp. 275-6] with a portion missing at the lower corner, affecting a few words of the text on each side. This irregularity extends up along the fore-edge as a rough deckle, demonstrating that this is almost certainly a paper flaw, rather than a tear caused by use or abuse of this copy. The paper does display moderate scattered foxing and a few small brown stains throughout, as one might expect from American book paper of the time. The French text is set in double columns throughout -- the columns are separated by a single vertical rule. Scarce in commerce, this edition is fairly well represented in institutional holdings [see OCLC: 7919687]. Not in the 'Catalogue of books contained in the Library of the American Bible Society' - 1855 (see p. 42, where this should be right under the 1810 Boston edition, translated by Isaac-Louis Le Maistre de Sacy.) The American Bible Society did publish its own edition of this translation, just four years later -- [A` New-York: : Imprimé aux frais et sous l'inspection de la société établie dans cette ville sous le titre de "The New-York Bible Society." Chez J. Seymour, imprimeur, John-Street, no. 49., 1815.] And in 1820, the society did issue a version with stereotyped (metal cast) plates -- [Edition stéréotype, revue et corrigée avec soin d'apres les textes hebreu et grec. A` New-York: : Imprimé avec des planches solides, aux frais de la Société biblique americaine par Daniel Fanshaw., 1820.] The many and various descendants of this stereotyped edition are fairly common, but this 1811 letterpress edition is not frequently found.

Containing a lengthy patriotic, allegorical poem describing events of the new republic with references to Shay's rebellion; Elbridge Gerry; James Madison; the Constitution; the American Revolution; Timothy Pickering, beginning: ""Our Eagle shall soar till time is no more, And ne'er lose the plumes that adorn his broad wings; But range wide creation every nation Shall burst from the shackles of tyrants and kings... When by revolution sprang out of confusion This great free Republic - The United States; Our heroes then living gave praise and thanksgiving to Him who directs the invisible fates... While in future story the fed and the tory from Pick'ring and Gore to the bold 'Silver Greys' shall sink in perdition for their opposition To governments laws - like the infamous Shays... To see Captain Gerry, succesful and merry, in ship Constitution, whose bottom is tight, in line with the Union, and holling communion, With Commodore Madison, whose compass is right"".

In the remains of what is probably the original full leather, but now all boards detached and all very worn - so effectively disbound. Horrible old tape loosely holding the boards on the end papers of vol 1. Small ink stain to the title page of vol 1. Spotting throughout. Uncommon first edition of this work which was not published in English until 1825/1830. Disbound. Good.
