        THE SURGICAL WORKS OF JOHN ABERNATHY 2 VOLUMES 1811

      LONGMAN, MURRAY LONDON 1811 - THE SURGICAL WORKS OF JOHN ABERNATHY 2 LEATHER BOUND VOLUMES OVER 200 YEARS OLD 1811-1815. A pride to any surgeon on his shelf. John Abernathy apprenticed in 1779 to Sir Charles Blicke (1745–1815), a surgeon at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London and attended the anatomical lectures of Sir William Blizard (1743–1835) at the London Hospital. He attended Percivall Pott's surgical lectures at St Bartholomew's Hospital, as well as the lectures of John Hunter. He began to give lectures at his house in Bartholomew Close, which were so well attended that the governors of the hospital built a theatre (1790–1791), and Abernethy thus became the founder of the medical school of St Bartholomew's where he was elected principal surgeon in 1815. His name is associated with the treatment of aneurysm by ligature of the external iliac artery. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

In the 'Editor's Preface to the German and French Editions,' Frederick the Great's strategic prowess as displayed in these Instructions is described thus: "Here Frederic [sic] fully displays the art, by which he was so constantly victorious:—the manner of misleading the Enemy respecting the real point of attack—even the art of rapidly passing from the defensive to the offensive state, keeping in view all the chances of success. By these principles, peculiarly his own, he was enabled often to accomplish great actions with small comparative means." [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Secret Strategical Instructions

      1811. Signed. FREDERICK, King of Prussia (SMITH, Charles Hamilton, translator).Secret Strategical Instructions, of Frederic the Second, for His Inspectors General. Translated from the German by Captain C.H. Smith.Coventry: R. Pratt et al., 1811.First translation into English of Frederick the Great?'s Secret Instructions, intended to complement Foster?'s 1762 translation of Frederick?'s Military Instructions, with 31 hand-colored copperplates by Smith of fortifications and strategic formations (five folding), Frederick?'s biographer Thomas Carlyle?'s copy, inscribed, ?"To Major Genl. Sir Colin Campbell G.C.B &c &c, with many kind regards, T. Carlyle, Chelsea, Decr 1853.?" With an additional gift inscription to Major-General Clayton Bissell, Assistant Chief of Staff for Intelligence in World War II.In the turbulent 18th century, the small state of Prussia was led by a man ?"of high military genius, capable of infusing into others his own undaunted spirit, while his subjects had learned both from him and his predecessors habits of patience, perseverance, and discipline?"(Britannica). In the Seven Years War, which pitted Prussia against an overwhelming Continental alliance of Austria, Russia, France, and Saxony, Frederick the Second ?"distinguished himself by continually keeping at bay much more powerful antagonists. He took advantage of the natural lack of cohesion of coalitions and fought his enemies, so far as possible, one at a time. The superior discipline of the Prussian army allowed Frederick to march it to the theater of war in small detachments, from various directions, uniting only shortly before a battle was to be fought. He also made the most of the oblique order of battle which he had inculcated in the Prussian army and which allowed him to concentrate his forces against emerging weak spots in his enemies?' more ponderous formations?" (Encyclopedia of World Biography).Light scattered foxing. A near-fine copy with extraordinary provenance.

        THE SEASONS

      Wilkie and Robinson, J. Walker, Cadell and Davies, et al., London 1811 - 191 x 121 mm (7 1/2 x 4 3/4"). 1 p.l., lii, 236 pp. Includes a "Life of the Author" by P. Murdoch and "An Essay on the Plan and Character of the Poem" by J. Aiken, M.D. VERY PLEASING CONTEMPORARY CRIMSON STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, ELABORATELY DECORATED IN GILT AND BLIND, covers with broad gilt fillet perimeter bordering a frame of gilt palmettes and then (closer in) fillets and palmettes in blind; raised bands with gilt dash-roll, spine compartments with symmetrically clustered arabesques, roses, open dots, stars, and foliate tools, gilt-rolled turn-ins, all edges gilt. With four engraved allegorical plates designed by T. Uwins. Inscribed on the verso to front free endpaper: "L. E. / from the library of her brother / Henry Duncombe / The gift of Lucy Duncombe / 1832," and signed on the first preliminary leaf, "H. Dumcombe E[x] dono A. Curzon." Lowndes IV, 2671 (citing editions through 1848). A little foxing to the plates, but AN EXTRAORDINARILY FINE COPY, the text clean and fresh, and the lovely binding very lustrous and virtually unworn. This is an elegantly bound copy of "The Seasons," the most influential poem in blank verse from Milton to the Romantics. Incredibly popular, it was found almost universally in English homes, whether cottages or castles. Born in Scotland, James Thomson (1700-48), who is also famous for his song "Rule Britannia," is credited with challenging the artificiality of English poetry and beginning a new era of sentiment for nature. "Seasons" was originally published as four separate poems from 1726-30, and as a first collected edition in 1730. Thomson continually revised and enlarged it, his final version appearing in 1744. The work itself, of course, is hardly rare, but the present binding is both unusually pretty and exceptionally well preserved. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Herr Hofrath Rehmann hat ihn unterm 8. Jun. durch einen Reisenden abgeschickt, der erst vor einigen Tagen hier angekommen seyn soll und mir ihn durch die dritte Hand zugestellt hat. So geht es gewöhnlich mit den Reisenden! Ich gebe alle meine Briefe, an deren baldiger Bestellung mir etwas liegt, gerade auf die Post. Hätte ich Ihren Brief zu Anfang des Junis erhalten, so würden Sie den verlangten Schädel schon vielleicht in Ihren Händen haben. Vielleicht läßt es sich doch noch damit machen. Schreiben Sie mir mit umgehender Post, ob Sie ihn noch zum Krusensternschen Atlas brauchen können, wenn Sie ihn am Ende des Septembers oder in den ersten Tagen des Oktobers erhalten können? Ich will in diesem Fall sogleich nach Berlin schreiben, und ihn von da mit der Post auf meine Kosten nach Königsberg oder Memel kommen lassen, von wo aus er Ihnen nach St. Petersburg direct geschickt werden soll. Am sichersten würde es wol seyn, wenn er in Memel an die Akademie der Wissenschaften zu St. Pt. adressirt werden könnte. Sprechen Sie darüber mit dem Herrn EtatsRath von Schubert, und geben Sie mir in dem Fall, daß mein Vorschlag ausführbar ist, genau die Adresse an, welche auf das Päckchen zu setzen ist. - Die Einlage empfehle ich Ihnen zu baldiger Beförderung. Ich weiß die Wohnung d. H. HR. Rehmann nicht; sonst hätte ich Sie nicht damit beschwert [...]"

According to the box label the game is played by taking tricks by playing a county adjoining the card on the deck. The England & Wales map is included as an aid, with a different coloured back. In this first edition each card has the publishers inscription 'Pub. by J. Allen, 3 Hampden Str. Sommers's Town 1811' under the title at top, and 'Also by R. Rowe, No. 19 Bedford Str. Bedford Row London' in the bottom border. In the second edition, later the same year, Rowe's inscription had been replaced by a panel of topographical information; apparently the partnership of Allen & Rowe had been dissolved. The maps next appeared in J. Thomson's 'New English Atlas' in 1823, and finally in Orlando Hodgson's 'The Pocket tourist & English atlas, being a new and complete set of county maps', 1827, by which time the maps were hardly 'new'. Surprisingly it was Hodson's edition that was the most familiar to the map world: it was not until 1985 that London map and playing card dealer Yasha Beresiner discovered this playing-card format and recognised the connection.

        LA UNION INDISOLUBLE. AVISO Á LOS INCAUTOS AMERICANOS CONTRA LA SEDUCCIONES DE NAPOLEON BONAPARTE, Y MAXÍMAS DE LOS NUEVOS FILOSOFOS.

      Havana: Don Esteban Joseph Boloña, 1811. - [6],28pp. Quarto. Quarter modern polished calf over linen-covered boards, spine gilt. Minor instances of light foxing at edges of first and last printed leaves. Lower corner of rear fly leaf torn. A very good copy. An extremely rare early 19th-century Havana imprint defending the monarchy and Spanish sovereignty on the Peninsula and in the New World against Napoleon and the negative influences of other contemporary philosophies. Issued during the Peninsular War, Figuera de Vargas' pamphlet was intended to promote the continued union of the Spanish realm in both hemispheres and to serve as a warning against the "seductive" elements of the French invasion and other pernicious influences. Due to a combination of climate and often poor paper quality, colonial-era Cuban imprints are rare. Not recorded in OCLC or Palau.

        Exploratory Travels through the Western Territories of North America . Performed in the years 1805, 1806, 1807 .

      Longman Hurst [et al.], London 1811 - Quarto, pp. xx, 436. Two maps, one of which is folding. Pike made the first American exploration of the Southwest, under US government auspices: it is consequently the foundation of any collection on that area. Most of this region was Spanish territory at the time,which led to Pike's arrest, with his entire party, above Santa Fe; he was sent to Chihuahua for trial. After considerable delay, and the confiscation of all his notes, maps, etc., he was escorted through Texas back to Louisiana. Pike called attention to the weakness of the Spanish defenses and the importance of the Santa Fe trade. The American first edition came out in 1810 in a very confused textual state; the British edition is much clearer due to the editor, Rees, who, "undertook to brink something like cosmos out of this chaos . by weaving as much as he could of the matter of the Appendixes into the main text, or into the footnotes thereto, thereby greatly reducing the bulk of the appendicial texts." (Coues quoted in Wagner-Camp). The folding map shows some minor foxing, common with this map; otherwise the text is quite clean and fresh. The binding is 19th century 3/4 calf over marbled boards. There is a bookplate on the inside front board, otherwise no markings. Very nice copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

XVI,366,(2 blanka) + (2),306,(2) s. Med ett stort antal träsnitt i texten. Två ngt nötta samtida ljusbruna skinnbd med upphöjda bind, guldornerad och blindpressad ryggdekor i form av snöflingor och svarta titel- och deltiteletiketter samt marmorerade snitt och guldpräglade pärmbårder. Pärmsidorna har mönsterpressade rutmönster och pärmkanterna med nötta guldpräglade dekorationer. Ryggarna ngt blekta och skrapade. Främre falsarna spruckna och förstärkta. Bakre pärmen till del II med en lång repa. Bra inlagor med några enstaka obetydliga fläckar. I del II har läsbandet lämnat några spår på s. 44-45. Med sir Henry Pottingers och Joseph Boultbees exlibris, den senares endast i del I.. Soulsby A catalogue of the works of Linnæus 192. Bring Itineraria svecana 136. Schiötz Utlendigers reiser i Norge 608a*. Marklund Övre Norrland i litteraturen 3591. Varianten med bokhandelsreklam på sista bladet i del II. Första upplagan av Linnés lappländska resa, översatt av Carl Troilius. Resan företogs 1732 men kom ut på svenska först 1888. Träsnitten är utförda av R. T. Austin efter Linnés teckningar och föreställer djurarter, hantverksföremål, landskap m.m. I ett appendix till del II återges ett extrakt ur Wahlenbergs "berättelse om mätningar och observationer" i översättning av J. Dryander. Smith presenteras på titelbladet som "president of the Linnæan society" där manuskriptet till resan fortfarande förvaras. Smith utgav efter att ha förvärvat Linnés samlingar flera olika tidigare opublicerade arbeten av denne. Gunnar Brusewitz skrev om resan i artikeln "Naturskildraren Linné": "Lapplandsresan har med rätta ställts i främsta rummet ur litterär synpunkt, därför att vi där hundraprocentigt kan lita på att det är Linnés egna ord vi läser. Han reste till största delen ensam och var sin egen sekreterare. [---] Naiv i betydelsen oerfaren, oskuldsfull var aldrig Linné, men han visste tillräckligt mycket för att våga visa häpenhet även inför de mest vardagsnära företeelser. Den moderne journalisten har mycket att lära av Linné." Henry Pottinger var Hongkongs första guvernör

        The History of New South Wales, from its First Discovery to the Present Time.; comprising an accurate and interesting Description of that Vast and Remarkable Country; and of the Persons, Manners, and Customs, of the Natives.

      Mackenzie and Dent, Newcastle 1811 - Octavo, two maps and three plates, printed on rather cheap paper which is consequently a little browned and with some offsetting; very good in polished brown morocco by Bayntun/Riviere. A very scarce book. This is the first issue: a later version gave the author's name on the title-page. Although appearing to be an early history of New South Wales, the earlier part is largely cribbed from Collins, and in fact the three engravings are all straight copies from that work. Other sections are taken from famous Australian works such as Tuckey, Mann, and other authors.The fact that the book was published in 1811 also means that the work was able to include some of the latest news and reports from the infamous "Rum Rebellion" trial of George Johnston, printed in a substantial appendix. The evidence presented at the court-martial, and included here, was the 'fullest, clearest and best substantiated account of the present state of the colony'.The four copies located by Ferguson were those in the prime Australian collections: Mitchell, Dixson, National Library of Australia, and his own collection.

        Appenzell. - Osterschrift.- Prob- oder Examensschrift des Mathias Mayer im Nageldach, (Appenzeller Vorderland - Appenzell a/Rd.).

      1811,. 41.5x51.5 cm (Blatt) / 55x 68 (Rahmen), Aquarell, Tuschfeder mit brauner Tinte auf Papier, der Text verziert mit goldgehöhten kalligraph. Initialen u. Titelzeilen in Zierschrift, reich ausgemalt mit floralen Ornamenten, urspr. gefaltet, im breiten Goldrahmen unter Glas,. Diese Schreibprobe zeigt die schönste Handschrift des Schülers Mathias Mayer "auf das osterliche Examen 1811". Die frommen Zeilen sind teilweise in deutscher Kurrentschrift und teilweise in lateinischer Schrift geschrieben und mit schönen Initialen sowie Blumenranken verziert. In der Mittelgirlande prangt die Nummer 1, welche Mathias als den besten Schüler seiner Klasse auszeichnet. An der Schlussfeier am Ostermontag trugen die Schüler meist ihre Proben in einer Prozession zur Kirche mit den besten Schülern an der Spitze. Die sogenannten Prob- oder Examensschriften, später auch Osterschriften genannt, waren v.a. im Kanton Appenzell der Gradmesser für die schulische Leistung der Schüler. Dieses wichtige Zeugnis der Volksbildung war das ganze 18. Jh. und noch bis in die 1830er Jahre der wichtigste Moment im ganzen Schuljahr für die Schüler und ihren Lehrer. Denn auf Ostern mussten die Schüler unter Anleitung des Lehrers eine möglichst schöne Probe ihres Schreibkönnens ablegen. Danach ergänzte ein vom Lehrer beauftragter Maler die kalligraphischen Initialen. Der Pfarrer, Schulvorsteher, Gemeinderäte etc. begutachteten am Freitag vor Palmsonntag die Proben im Rathaus und vergaben eine Rangnummer. Der Schüler mit der letzten Nummer sah sich dem Spott und Hohn seiner Mitschüler ausgesetzt und wurde als "die Sau" bezeichnet. Diese Schreibprobe war so wichtig, dass Eltern ihre Kinder mit Vorteil zu dem Lehrer schickten, dessen Schüler die schönsten Probschriften hervorbrachten. Zur Zeit der Privatschulen und der freien Lehrerwahl, war dies natürlich auch für die Lehrer bedeutsam und so manch einer richtete den ganzen Lehrplan auf diese Schreibübung aus. Mit Beginn der modernen Pädagogik und der Schulreformen um 1830 verschwand der Brauch allmählich.Please notify before visiting to see a book. Prices are excl. VAT/TVA (only Switzerland) & postage. T.

      London, 'Printed for Vernor, Hood, and Sharpe, Poultry; and J. Miller, Albemarle-Street; By J. Keymer, Yarmouth', 1811 - Octavo, [ii] (title leaf), lxii, 496, [6] (index), [2] (errata and instructions to the binder, last blank) pages with a few in-text illustrations plus a fine hand-coloured frontispiece ('An Icelandic Lady in Her Bridal Dress') and 3 plates (2 of them double-page). Early full morocco boards later rebacked in heavily gilt-decorated calf with a contrasting title-label, all edges marbled; leather on the boards cracked, scuffed and marked, with some surface loss (particularly to the rear board); frontispiece offset, other plates a little foxed and lightly marked; minimal foxing; a very good copy. With the armorial bookplate of the Stanley family, Earls of Derby, on the pastedown, and a Stanley surname signature on an early blank. Loosely inserted is a typed aerogramme signed from Frank Maggs, dated 23 November 1954, replying to a query regarding variant imprints of this work. He writes that 'comparing the London issue with the Yarmouth the two are identically the same printing, with the exception that the London edition has a three page dedication to Sir Joseph Banks and a slightly different title page. So it looks as if the two issues are substantially the same except that the copies for the author himself bore his local Yarmouth imprint'.

        Programma. Regno d'Italia. Dipartimento del Reno. Distretto d'Imola. Il podesta della citta d'Imola

      tipografia comunale per Gianbenedetto Filippini, [Imola] 1811 - 1 sheet. Announcing a series of celebrations of the baptism of Napoléon II (1811-1832), known from birth as the King of Rome, son of Napoleon and his second wife, Marie Louise of Austria. Issued in Imola, the original seat of the provisional government of the Cispandane Republic, later merged with the Transpadane Republic, forming the Cisalpine Republic, in turn merged into the new Italian Republic, and then 1805, following Bonaparte's assumption of the title of Emperor of the French, transformed into the Kingdom of Italy, Regno d'Italia, as it is here. After declaring that the people of Imola are second to none in their loyalty to Napoleon, the proclamation notes a series of activities: poems to be read, canon shots and the pealing of bells at dawn, cash prizes to those being married and those who gave birth on the King of Rome's birthday, food for the poor and for those imprisoned, and at night, the town is to be illuminated, and there will be presentations at the theater, a symphony concert, and a ball. One copy at Biblioteca comunale, Imola. No other copies shown at any North American or other European Libraries. A few tiny tears at folds else a fine, untrimmed copy. [Attributes: First Edition]
