        AN ANSWER TO MR. JEFFERSON'S JUSTIFICATION OF HIS CONDUCT IN THE CASE OF THE NEW ORLEANS BATTURE

      Philadelphia: William Fry, 1813. xi,187pp. plus two folding maps. Half title. 20th-century red three-quarter morocco and marbled boards, spine gilt. Bookplate of Thomas W. Streeter on front pastedown. Light scattered foxing, primarily to first and last few leaves. Very good. Livingston's bitter reply to Jefferson's justification for confiscating the former's waterfront property in New Orleans. The New Orleans batture case was one of the bitter controversies of Jefferson's presidency. Livingston, a prominent New Orleans attorney, claimed ownership of a strip of beach (the batture) at New Orleans which had long been used as a common boat landing. Jefferson asserted government ownership up to the high water mark and had a federal marshal forcibly dispossess Livingston. This resulted in a celebrated case of the use of federal power which continued to be bitterly argued, so much so that Jefferson felt constrained, four years after leaving the presidency, to compose his legal reasoning in a pamphlet, one of only three full-scale works published under his name in his lifetime. Livingston herein replies to the former president. This copy is unusual in that it contains the two folding maps relating to the controversy, which are almost always lacking. The second of these shows in detail the eastern suburb of New Orleans, one of the first such maps of the area. The Streeter copy sold for $1300 when it appeared at auction in 1967. BOUND TO PLEASE 14, p.20. HOWES L396. STREETER SALE 1593 (this copy). SABIN 41610. COHEN 2827 (note).

        Aperçu du traitement qu'éprouvent les prisonniers de guerre français en Angleterre.

      Paris, J. G. Dentu 1813 - in-8, [4]-58 pp., avec une grande planche dépliante (Vue de l'intérieur du ponton Le Brunswick), demi-veau grenat, dos lisse orné de filets dorés, tranches mouchetées (reliure moderne). Bon exemplaire. Cet opuscule très rare est composé de deux parties distinctes : une lettre du "colonel Lebertre", officier français détenu sur le ponton Chatham, à John Wilson Croker (1780-1857), M.P., secrétaire de l'Amirauté, pour protester contre les conditions de détention sur les pontons anglais ; un rapport médical de Fontana "sur les causes des maladies qui attaquent les prisonniers dans les pontons." Le problème est qu'aucun colonel de ce nom n'est cité dans le répertoire des Quintin, et comme tout ce qui concerne les pontons, les "témoignages" strictement contemporains sont à prendre avec quelques précautions. Il est donc difficile de dire si l'on a affaire à un opuscule de propagande ou à une source réelle. Tulard, 870. Absent de Davois. Seulement deux exemplaires au CCF (BnF et Châlons).

        Elements of Agricultural Chemistry, a Course of Lectures for the Board of Agriculture

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown and A. Constable and Co. Edinburgh, London 1813 - Pioneering work by the leading chemist of the day, Sir Humphry Davy of the Royal Institution in London. An early attempt to apply newly acquired knowledge from the emerging science of chemistry to the challenges of agriculture. Davy was already famous for his other great synthesis - that of chemical principles and the fledgling science of electricity, being one of the first to experiment with the battery developed in 1800 by Alessandro Volta. Book is 8.75" x 11" and beautifully bound in leather with gold border around the boards and delicately decorated spine in gold. The green leather spine label reads, "Davy's Agricultural Lectures." Internally, pages are very clean except for some foxing spots on plates and their adjacent pages and the first few preliminary pages (including the title page). Joints showing minimal leather splitting on the top 1.5 inches or so, otherwise the binding is very sound. A beautiful book, visually, on a significant subject, by an eminent scientist of the early nineteenth century. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Among the illustrations are the famous thirteen-panel depiction of the stages of the Seder and the ten-panel depiction of the plagues of Egypt. Anton Schmid was a Christian publisher of Hebrew books, who benefited greatly from the 1800 ordinance prohibiting the import of Hebrew books by Jews (who were themselves excluded from the publishing business). He employed a number of Jewish typesetters and proofreaders, mainly from Galicia, who were granted special residence permits in Vienna. Schmid issued a number of printings of the Haggadah using, like here, Abraham's delicately engraved popular illustrations. This edition also features two popular commentaries by Moses Alscheich and Ephraim Luntschitz. Yaari 380. Yudlov 543. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

This 360-degree panorama was issued here on a roller. The sheets making up this example were trimmed along the lower edge before being mounted as one. It therefore lacks words from its title and also the imprint; the first three words of the title, artist, etcher, and the aquatinter appear in the lower margin of each sheet. A magnificent panorama, over 4 metres long, varnished. In 1797 Robert Barker took out a patent which gave him exclusive rights to exhibit 360o paintings mimicking nature. His first exhibition was of a painting of London and for this friends provided him with a title sufficiently striking to gain a permanent place in the English language. 'Panorama', derived from the Greek words meaning 'all' and 'view' had its first use in 1791 in the advertisements for the picture of London. Together with his son Henry Aston Barker, Robert opened a new and fashionable venue in Leicester Square, 'The Panorama', where examples of this new art form were exhibited to an eager public. A form of education and entertainment, the Barkers' panoramas soon became "all the rage" according to the artist John Constable. When their monopoly ended in 1801, the Barkers realised that they had to take steps to ensure their patrons were not enticed away to rival exhibitions. As a result, views from all parts of the globe started to appear at Leicester Square and, in 1801 the first foreign city to be presented at the Panorama was Constantinople. The present panorama forms a reproduction of the view. Indeed it represent the only large-scale reproduction of any of the views exhibited. Abbey Life 465; Atabey 60; Blackmer 76.

        Journal of a Tour in Iceland in the Summer of 1809

      London, Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown/ John Murray, 1813 [second edition, with additions]. Octavo, two volumes, [vi], cvi, 370 and [iv], 392, [14] (index) pages plus a hand-coloured frontispiece and 4 other plates (2 folding), 3 maps (2 folding) and a table. Early quarter morocco and plain papered boards (the latter rubbed); extremities worn; tidemarks in the first volume to the top corner of the first few leaves (affecting also the frontispiece and folding map), and in the second volume to the bottom corner of the folding map and the top corner of a handful of leaves at the rear; plates and maps offset; occasional foxing; a couple of trifling paper flaws; essentially a very good set. The provenance is extraordinary: the half-title of the first volume is inscribed 'To W. Colenso Esq. with Jos D. Hooker's kindest regards. H.M.S. "Erebus" Septr 15 1841'. Captain James Ross and the two ships under his command, Erebus and Terror, spent August to November 1841 in the Bay of Islands, New Zealand, between his first and second voyages to the Antarctic. To put this inscription into context, Ross's expedition was the first to enter what is known today as the Ross Sea, the first to sight the Admiralty Mountains, the first to see Victoria Land, Ross Island, Mounts Erebus and Terror, and the Ross Ice Shelf, amongst other momentous discoveries. The Antarctic bibliographer Michael Rosove describes Ross's published account as 'a cornerstone of the Antarctic literature and a monument to one of mankind's greatest expeditions of geographical and scientific exploration'. In Huxley's 'Life and Letters of Sir Joseph Dalton Hooker' (1918), specific reference is made to Hooker (the son of the author) meeting Colenso during this visit: 'Hooker, under the guidance of Mr. Colenso, the printer to the missionary establishment, and himself a keen botanist, made a number of excursions into the country ... collecting many specimens'. William Colenso (1811-99) continued to supply specimens to Hooker over many years, and Sir Joseph named the genus 'Colensoa' after him. The set also contains in each volume the bookplate of the physician, naturalist and collector Robert Henry Pulleine (1869-1935, born in NZ, moved to SA in 1881), and the first volume carries the later ownership signature of Sir Douglas Mawson, from whose collection this set has been sourced.

        The Arabian antiquities of Spain.

      London Cadell & Davies 1813 - First edition. Large folio (66 x 49 cm), engraved title, 103 fine engraved plates and plans by E. Turrell, J. Roffe and others after Murphy, light foxing to title and first few leaves, contemporary half calf gilt, spine darkened and joints neatly repaired, a very attractive copy. The first book to provide English readers with an accurate idea of the arts and architecture of Moorish Spain. Architect, architectural draughtsman and author. James Cavanah Murphy is said to have been born of obscure parentage in Blackrock, Co. Cork, and to have trained as a bricklayer. A talent for drawing brought him to the attention of Sir James Chatterton, who provided the means for him to go to Dublin. In Dublin he became a pupil at the Dublin Society's drawing schools in about 1775. James Cavanah Murphy spent the last 12 years of his life preparing notes and drawings for a publication on this Moorish architecture. The resulting book, The Arabian Antiquities of Spain, was only partially published at his death in 1814. Thomas Hartwell Horne added text descriptions to Murphy's measured drawings, and the whole was reprinted in 1815. Murphy's careful documentation of the Great Mosque of Cordoba and the Alhambra in Granada are appreciative acknowledgements of the Moors' artistic achievements.

        Ueber Strassenbeleuchtung mit Steinkohlen durch die Thermolampe vorzüglich in Hinsicht ihrer Anwendung im Großen (pp.38-48, 1 gefalt. Tab., 1 Taf.).

      Schweigger's Journal, 8. - Nürnberg, in der Schrag'schen Buchhandlung, 1813, 8, VIII, 469 pp., 2 Tab., 1 Taf.4 Beilagen: 17 + (4) 24 + 4 10 +(4) 16 + (4) pp., HLdrBd. d.Zt. Erste Straßenbeleuchtung in Deutschland "Beschreibung der Strassenbeleuchtungsversuche mit Steinkohlen, angestellt im Winter 1811-12" in der Fischergasse in Freiberg/ Sachsen!Wilhelm August Lampadius (1772-1842) "ist in Hehlen a. d. Weser am 8. 8. 1772 als Sohn eines Offiziers, der in englischen Diensten stand, geboren. Sein Vater ging dienstlich nach Amerika und ist dort verschollen. So lag die Erziehung des Knaben allein in den Händen der Mutter und deren Schwager, des Pastors Prössel zu Bofzen bei Fürstenberg. Die Liebe zu den Naturwissenschaften zeigte sich schon früh. Mit 12 Jahren konfirmiert, kam der Junge als Lehrling in die Ratsapotheke nach Göttingen. Aus Neujahrgeschenken, die er als Lehrling erhielt, und mit den Gaben einiger Verwandten hatte er während der Lehre 75 Taler erspart, mit denen er sein Studium begann. Er beschreibt es als einen der glücklichsten Augenblicke seines Lebens, wie er zum ersten Male, der harten Knechtschaft der Lehre entronnen, als ein freier Jüngling, ein Göttinger Bursch, in seiner Studentenbunde - sogar mit einem Sofa - gesessen hätte mit den schönsten Aussichten, die Natur und namentlich Meteorologie zu studieren. Sein großer Gönner wurde Professor Lichtenberg. Lichtenberg, Gmelin, Kästner, Murray, Blumenbach gaben ihm freien Zutritt zu den Kollegs, die er 1790 bis 1793 mit Eifer besucht hat. Vielleicht hat Lampadius von Lichtenberg den leichten Hang zur Satire - in Gestalt eines gutmütigen Humors - angenommen. Möglicherweise hat Lampadius auch von Lichtenberg, der ja zu Weihnachten 1783 damit begann, Aerostaten-Versuche anzustellen, zuerst über das Gas gehört. Ohne Frage aber war es wohl Lichtenberg, der Betreuer der englischen Prinzen Ernst August (nachmals König von Hannover) und Georg, der ihm das Amt des Einpaukers der Prinzen vermittelte. Gegen Ende des dritten Studienjahres forderte ihn Graf v. Sternberg als Begleiter zu einer Reise durch Rußland nach China auf, die wegen der Ausweisung durch die Polizei aber in Moskau abgebrochen wurde. So kam Lampadius als Privatsekretär des Grafen nach Böhmen, wo er sich der Chemie und deren praktischer Anwendung in den kleinen Industriebetrieben widmete. Von hier aus wurde er 1794 nach Freiberg zur Bergakademie zuerst als a. o. Professor berufen. Im Jahre darauf, also 23 Jahre alt, wurde er zum o. Professor für allgemeine Chemie ernannt. Er war sehr vielseitig mit der technischen Anwendung seiner chemischen Kenntnisse beschäftigt. Man kann nur die Hauptgebiete hier nennen: Agrikulturchemie, Düngesalze. Rübenzuckerfabrikation, wegen der ihn Napoleon I. und auch Carl August von Weimar zu Rate zog. Überhaupt war er stets bereit, in den Fabriken der Umgebung Ratschläge zu erteilen. So kam er auch zum Hüttenwesen. Ab 1797 hielt er einen Kursus für Hüttenkunde. Er kam mit Faber du Faur in Wasseralfingen zusammen, dem rührigen württembergischen Hüttenmann, der mit Gasgeneratoren und Heißwind im Hochofen arbeitete. Im Freiberger Bezirk führte Lampadius den Heißwind ein. Berühmte Schüler waren Alexander von Humboldt und Henrik Steffens. Mit Berzelius und Mitscherlich stand er in inniger Verbindung. Nach 48 Jahren erfolgreicher Tätigkeit in Freiberg verstarb er nach einem langen, aber nicht schmerzlichen Krankenlager am 13. 4. 1842. So war der Mann beschaffen, der sich als erster Wissenschaftler an einer technischen Lehranstalt der Gaserzeugung zuwandte. Schon im Jahre 1798 begann er mit Entgasungsversuchen an einer Menge brennbarer Stoffe und veröffentlichte die Ergebnisse über Ausbeutezahlen und Aschengehalt in den Sammlungen chemischer Abhandlungen, 3. Band, 1800, Dresden bei Walther.Bereits erwähnt ist, daß Lampadius dem Kurfürsten in seinem Schloße in Dresden bereits 1799 eine Thermolampe vorgeführt hat. Sollte er damit erreicht haben, daß die Fürsten dieses Landes ihr Auge von der neuen Beleuchtungsart nicht abwandten und die Treiber wurden, daß die spätere königliche Regierung die Stadtbeleuchtung in Dresden als erstem Unternehmen der öffentlichen Hand erbaut hat? Andere technische Verkohlungsversuche im Großen hat er in den "Erfahrungen im Gebiete der Chemie und Hüttenkunde", Weimar, Sachs. Ind. Comptoir, 1815 bekanntgegeben. Hier wird auch über Braunkohle, Erdkohle, Moorkohle berichtet. 1817 stellte er fest, daß er seit 20 Jahren auf dem gräflich Bucquoischen Eisenwerke Gabrielenhütte Buchenholz zur Gewinnung von Teer und Essig verkohlt und das Gas zur Unterfeuerung benutzt habe. Lampadius berührte das Dilemma bei der Holzverkohlung: Arbeitet man mit mäßiger Temperatur, erhält man eine gute Holzkohle, aber wenig und schlecht leuchtendes Gas bei hoher Temperatur ergibt sich aber mit einem besseren Gase eine schwammige Holzkohle. Er beansprucht für sich, den ersten Gedanken, das Gas in Hütten zu Heizzwecken heranzuziehen, gehabt zu haben. "Zur Ergänzung des Geschichtlichen über die Benützung der bei der Verkohlung der Brennmaterialien verlorengehenden Stoffe sei es mir erlaubt, hier anzuführen, daß meine Versuche hierüber im Jahre 1797 begannen. In diesem Jahre röstete ich in dem hiesigen Henkeischen Laboratorium zuerst Kiese durch das brennende gekohlte Hydrogengas (ein Name, der in den alten Schriften immer wieder durcheinander für Kohlengas oder Methan gebraucht wurde), welches bei der Verkohlung des Holzes entweich. .. Bei diesen Versuchen war mir der jetzige Salineninspektor, Herr Klemm, behilflich. Herr Murdock, dessen Versuche ich aber nicht kannte, und ich haben uns mithin in Hinsicht der Ansprüche auf die Entdeckung der Anwendung des gekohlten Hydrogengases zu teilen. Er gab das Licht und ich die Wärme. .. Die Steinkohlengasbeleuchtung fing ich hier zuerst an, nachdem dunkle Nachrichten über dieselbe während der traurigen Continentalsperre aus dem gewerbereichen England zu uns drangen. Die kriegerischen Unruhen und der Geldmangel haben uns in Sachsen bis jetzt von der weiteren Ausführung dieses neuen Industriezweiges abgehalten. .. Es war den 24. Januar 1816, an welchem ich das Steinkohlengaslicht (in Deutschland zuerst) auf dem kgl. Sächs. Amalgamierwerk in der Halsbrücke bei Freiberg anzünden konnte." Nach dieser Aufzeichnung des Lampadius selbst könnte die Nachricht, er habe bereits 1811 einen Teil der Fischergasse in Freiberg beleuchtet, als widerspruchsvoll bezeichnet werden. Vermutlich hat aber Lampadius diese Anlage, die vier Wochen im Betriebe war, nur als Versuch gewertet, während die Beleuchtung im Amalgierwerk eine Dauereinrichtung war. Sie hat mit Erweiterungen im Jahre 1825 bis 1894 gearbeitet. Lampadius hat sich mehr als alle wissenschaftlichen Forscher bis dahin in die Technik vertieft. Statt dem damals üblichen Schattenphotometer nach Rumford zum Vergleich der Leuchtkraft zweier Flammen benutzte er einen Tubus, in der trübe Hornglas- oder Beinglasscheiben eingesetzt wurden, bis das anvisierte Licht nicht mehr sichtbar war. Damit gewann er nach der Zahl der notwendigen Gläser eine Skala von Dunkelheit = o bis zum hellsten Licht (Sauerstoff mit Phosphor) = 100, z. B. Öllampe = Vollmond 37, Talglicht 30, Probierofen 42, Gaslicht 45, Glasofen 62, Sonnenlicht 85 usw. Über die Mängel z. B. aus Ungenauigkeiten der Trübungen soll hier nicht gerechtet werden. Der Versuch, eine absolute Skala zu schaffen, ist aber zu bewundern.y In der Gaserzeugung stellte er den Einfluß der wirksamen Gaskühlung gegenüber den unzureichenden englischen Kühlern - als Schlangen im Behälterwasser - fest. Daraufhin entwickelte er einen besonderen Vorkühler aus einer flachen Bleiblechblase. Besonders hat sich Lampadius mit der Verwertung des Teeres befaßt. Er hielt ihn für eine gute Maschinenschmiere, beschrieb das Verfahren, ihn als Rostschutz für Eisen zu verwenden und gab ein Rezept mit Zuschlägen für die damals eine große Rolle spielenden Eisenkitte. Er beschrieb auch die Weiterverarbeitung des Teeres in Blasen zur Entfernung des Wassers und Gewinnung von Terpentinöl, mit dem er Versuche als Beleuchtungsöl angestellt hat. Der Rückstand sei ein sehr schönes schwarzes Pech. Angeregt durch die Übersetzung des Accum und Nachrichten im Hermbstädt'schen Bulletin hat er sich nach 1817 auch mit der Zersetzung des Teeres zur Gaserzeugung befaßt. Er hat nach Vorbildern ein glühendes schrägliegendes Eisenrohr benutzt, in das der Teer eintropfte, wobei er auch sonst schlecht verwertbare Öle anderen Ursprungs "thermisch krackte". Der sich im Rohr absetzende Koks mußte von Hand entfernt werden. Lampadius hielt Leinölgas für Haushaltsanlagen wegen der geringen erforderlichen Hitze - das Rohr eingebaut in den Kochherd - für vorteilhaft. Überhaupt machte sich Lampadius Gedanken, wie die Gasbeleuchtung gefördert werden könnte. Ihrer allgemeinen Einführung zur Straßenbeleuchtung stände die nach den napoleonischen Kriegen entstandene Geldknappheit entgegen. Man solle so beginnen, daß man einzelne Hausbesitzer durch Subventionen ermutige, Hausanlagen in die Kachelöfen einzubauen, und diese verpflichte, als Gegenleistung einen Wandarm zur Straßenbeleuchtung außerhalb des Hauses anzubringen. Später erklärte er, daß mit Hilfe des Gasbehälters, den er erst 1815 kennengelernt hat, die Straßenbeleuchtung auch von einer Gasfabrik möglich würde. Man fühlt gerade aus diesen Anregungen, daf hier am Wirtschaftlichen die Möglichkeiten des Professors ihr Ende fanden." Johannes Körting, Geschichte der Deutschen Gasindustrie, pp.56-60

To which are added, observations on the inconveniences and dangers arising from the use of common spectacles, &c. &c. By An Experienced Oculist.

      London: Henry Colburn. 1813. 8vo., engraved frontispiece, xvi + 234 + (2)pp., including the final advertisement leaf, original boards with original printed spine label, entirely uncut. A fine copy. First edition in English. A notable book by the celebrated Austrian opthalmologist Georg Joseph Beer (1763-1821) who has been credited with introducing a flap operation for treatment of cataracts ('Beer's operation'). In 1812 he had been appointed to the chair of ophthalmology at the University of Vienna. The work here translated into English is of rather more than purely ophthalmological interest as Beer includes in it an interesting section on 'the care of the eyes in various species of labour and employment' (pp.135-151). In this chapter he offers 9 rules to be observed, several of them, of course, about reading. And so considers the particular risks of tailors and shoemakers, engravers and watch-makers, artists, &c. &c. The 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th rules are particularly noteworthy: Rule 6. 'All artists or workmen, whose employment is connected with polished substances, such as goldsmiths, jewellers, &c. should regulate their labour so as that they should be occupied during the evening only on such substances as are unwrought, or which are not very bright'. Rule 7. 'Painters who execute large pictures ought always to cover more than half of the window near which they sit, with a curtain of green silk.' Rule 8. 'All artizans who work at a blazing fire ought often to wash their eyes with cold pure water'. Rule 9. 'All those who work in wool, particularly carders and spinners, and all those employed in cotton and woollen manufactures, &c. should often wash their eyes, to free them from impurities'.

Col. Crichton's bed for the easy conveyance of sick or wounded persons>. Bosworth's book was reprinted in the U.S. in 1814 and came out in a second edition in 1834. Newton Bosworth himself was a Cambridge schoolmaster, the Preface to this book being written from Merton Hall Academy, a boys' boarding school of which Bosworth was Master. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Ob man die alte Hoffnung aufgeben sollte, den Stein aus der Blase auf mechanische oder chemische Weise einst noch wegschaffen zu können (pp.289-303 305-318 321-331, 1 gefalt. Tafel mit 7 Fig.).

      Med.-chir. Ztg., 1813/1. - Salzburg, Mayr'schen Buchdruckerey, 1813, 8, 432 pp., 1 gestochene Tafel, feiner Pappband der Zeit, mit roten Rüchenschild. First Edition of the first scientific treatise on the transurethral destruction and extraction of bladder stones without any incision being made!It was at this time, in the early nineteenth century, that there was much controversy about whether a straight sound or tube could be passed through the male urethra. A Bavarian physician, Dr. Gruithuisen (1774-1852), settled this question, and at the same time devised the first model of a possibly workable lithotrite for the destruction of bladder stones.His scientific work on the treatment of bladder stones Gruithuisen's most important work in urology was his memoir published in the Medicinisch-Chirurgische Zeitung (Journal of Medicine and Surgery) of Salzburg. It appeared on 4 March 1813 with the very significant title ''Should one abandon the long-standing hope of one day being able to remove stones in the bladder by mechanical or chemical means?'' (''Ob man die alte Hoffnung aufgeben sollte, den Stein aus der Blase auf mechanische oder chemische Weise einst noch wegschaffen zu können?'').Only after many years of experimenting on animals, cadavers, and, partly on himself, Dr. Gruithuisen decided to present his instruments and publish his results. The first practical attempts to remove a bladder stone by a transurethral method may be credited to Gruithuisen, who in 1813 published a description and illustration of the instrument he had devised. He distinguished between six possible treatments of bladder stones: by perineal incision (lithotomy), by washing the bladder with water, by crushing the stone (mechanical), by dissolving it with chemicals, by galvanic pulverisation, and by combining the mechanical and chemical methods. The last procedure seemed the best to him. In 1813 Gruithuisen tested the method by passing a straight tube into a bladder. He demonstrated that a large straight tube could be passed into the bladder and he tried to secure the stone by a loop of wire before perforating it with a trephine driven by a drill bow. His mechanical instrument consisted of a tube with awire loop, which, when placed in the bladder, would hold the stone in place against the tube for drilling or injection. The wires passed through holes in the wall of the tube into the interior and out at the external end, so that the operator holding the wire ends could keep the stone against the tube. A drill turned by the fingers or a small injection tube could be passed through the first tube. His original idea was to examine the stones, and according to the chemical analysis of the stones use an appropriate dissolving chemical solution. But no satisfactory solution could be found in vivo. Then Gruithuisen invented an instrument consisting of a strong metal rod, having at one end two diverging branches, which were sharp along the opposing edges, like the blades of a pair of scissors. This rod was drawn into an external straight hollow tube, which determined the approach of the diverging blades to each other. The stone was thus cut, and also tended to be crushed. Gruithuisen found that a conductor with a thick and straight shaft and a round tip facilitated its introduction and reduced the danger of injuring the urethra. In addition, the straight shaft with a thick lumen permitted other working instruments to be introduced into the bladder after the mandrin had been removed, as in the case of modern-day instruments. He used chicken-egg white as a natural lubricant. Gruithuisen also suggested the use of an electric current to destroy stones in the bladder after the introduction of the instruments. His source of electric power was a voltaic pile, consisting of platinum discs separated by silk covered with ''gum lac''. The electric current was to be delivered to the stone by two platinum wires carried into the bladder through a metal tube and insulated by glass tubes.Gruithuisen's work had given new practical impetus to the concepts and practical procedures that had existed for a thousand years for the removal of bladder calculi through the urethra without the bladder having to be cut open. Attempts had already been made before Gruithuisen to comminute bladder calculi by mechanical means. What was new about his work was that this shattering could be carried out with a straight instrument with a large calibre. Dr. Gruithuisen should therefore be credited for developing suitable instruments and for suggesting the basic idea of holding a stone in place at the end of a straight hollow tube and that of passing a drill through the tube to grind the stone. Jean Civiale (1792-1867) attended the lectures of Jean Nicolaus Marjolin (1770-1850) when he was only a second-year medical student at the University of Paris. Marjolin reported on the treatise and experiments of Dr. Gruithuisen. The young, vigorous, and enthusiastic Civiale was fascinated by the ideas, and began a series of experiments. -cf.

        Lehre von den Augenkrankheiten, als Leitfaden zu seinen öffentlichen Vorlesungen entworfen. 2 Bde.

      Wien, Camesina'schen Buchhandlung, 1813-1817, 8, XX, 636, XVI, 680, 51 pp., mit ca. 79 Abb., davon 44 von Beer handcoloriert u. handsigniert, auf 9 gefalt. Kupfertafeln, 2 Pappbände der Zeit mit rotem Rückenschildern. Feines Exemplar der ersten Ausgabe seines Hauptwerkes "Lehre von den Augenkrankheiten" - nicht zu verwechseln mit seinem Erstling "Die Lehre der Augenkrankheiten" (1792).*) Ein Klassiker der Augenheilkunde. Das klassische Lehrbuch der modernen Augenheilkunde und das Lebenswerk des berühmten Wiener Augenarztes! In idealer Weise verband Beer Praxis, Lehre und Forschung. Wien wurde zum Zentrum der Ophthalmologie. Zahlreiche Schüler verbreiteten die neuen Erkenntnisse in alle Welt. Sein vorliegendes Werk gibt genaue Krankheitsbeschreibungen und zeigt naturgetreue, künstlerisch vollendete Abbildungen des Auges. "..Die kolorierten Tafeln zeigen insgesamt 93 Krankheitszustände der Augen in prägnanter Ausdrucksform und klassischer Schönheit, die diese beiden Bände zu einer medizinisch-bibliophilen Kostbarkeit machen. Beer hat wie die Signatur ... ausweist, mit bewährter Hand jede Abbildung nach der Natur gezeichnet und koloriert. Viele Lehrbücher der Augenheilkunde sind ... mit handkolorierten Kupferstichen ausgestattet worden, aber keines erreicht die meisterhafte Darstellung dieses zweibändigen Werkes." - Münchow, Geschichte der Augenheilkunde. *)"Merkwürdiger weise hat Beer selbst in seinem Lebenswerk 'Lehre von den Augenkrankheiten' Wien 1813-1817 mit keinem Wort von seiner Jugendarbeit 'Lehrbuch der Augenkrankheiten' aus dem Jahre 1792 gesprochen, - wie ja auch mancher Dichter und Tondichter seine ersten Leistungen verleugnet. Auch würde Beer, wenn er nicht das zweite Werk hätte folgen lassen, schwerlich seinen Ruhm gewonnen haben. Denn so mancher Satz des ersten ist aus anderen Werken, namentlich aus dem von Richter entnommen.Hirschberg, 427Fine copy of the first Edition of "his main ophthalmologic work", not to be mixed up with 'Lehre der Augenkrankheiten' (1792). Beer himself mentions in his main ophthalmologic work 'Lehre von den Augenkrankheiten' (1813-1817) this product of his youth not at all, - as some poets and composer try to forget their early works. Beer certainly would not have become so famous if he had not written his second book. Quite a few paragraphs in the first book are taken from other publications, especially from Richter." Hirschberg-Blodi 4, p.105 Georg Joseph Beer (1763-1821) opened the first known eye-hospital, in Vienna, in 1786. He was a distinguished iredectomist and many of his pupils became famous ophthalmic surgeons. Beer described symptoms of glaucoma and noted the luminosity of the fundus in aniridia. Beer was considered the founder of the great Vienna school of ophthalmology and he was the first Jew to graduate in Austria. His influential textbook dictated the techniques of ophthalmological practice for several generations. He personally coloured the figures of abnormal eye conditions to ensure their accuracy under these cirumstances the edition could not have been very large.

Heilkunde".Der wissenschaftliche Nachlass, das therapeutischen Vermächtnis des großen Göttinger Chirurgen und Arztes August Gottlieb Richter /1742-1812), der "Vater der deutschen Wundärzte" (G.J. Beer) und "Vater der deutschen Augenheilkunde" (C.J.M. Langenbeck).Professor der Medizin in Göttingen, Leibarzt und Hofrath. Sein Hauptverdienst ist die Wiedervereinigung der Medizin mit der Chirurgie. er war ein erklärter Gegner der damals in Deutschland eingerissenen Operationsmanie, führte die Chirurgie zur Einfachheit zurück und beschränkte die Anzahl der chirurgischen Instrumente auf das Wesentliche. Seine Veröffentlichungen im Bereiche der Chirurgie und Augenheilkunde haben seinen Namen in der Wissenschaft unsterblich gemacht.Erst unter Richters segenreichem Wirken auf dem Gebiete der Chirurgie und Augenheilkunde wurde Göttingen zu einem international berühmten Zentrum der Medizin."Mit zunehmendem Alter und der Einschränkung seiner lehrenden und ärztlichen Thätigkeit zog sich Richter mehr von der Chirurgie zurück er behielt hauptsächlich nur die medicinischen Vorlesungen bei, las nicht in jedem Semester über Chirurgie und nur selten über Augenheilkunde die früher von ihm gehaltenen Vorlesungen wurden von seinen Schülern und jüngeren Collegen Arnemann, Wardenburg, Himly, K. J. M. Langenbeck übernommen. Er fand jetzt auch Muße, Reisen zu machen so 1786 eine halbjährige Reise nach der Schweiz und nach Frankreich, 1802 nach Wien. Nach seinen bisher fast ausschließlich der Chirurgie und Ophthalmologie gewidmeten Publicationen finden sich dann auch in der spätern Zeit: "Medicinische und chirurgische Bemerkungen, vorzüglich im öffentlichen akademischen Hospitale gesammelt" Bd. 1, 1793 ein 2. Band derselben erschien erst nach seinem Tode, von seinem Sohne Georg August Richter 1813 herausgegeben. Letzterer (geb. 1778-1832 zu Königsberg, als Professor der Medicin) gab aus den hinterlassenen Papieren des Vaters auch noch "Die specielle Therapie" 12 Bde. 1813-1836 (die beiden ersten Bände ins Lateinische von Fr. G. Wallroth 1818-20 übersetzt ein Auszug aus dem großen Werke in 4 Bdn. 1822-24) heraus, indessen sind in diesem Werke so erhebliche Zusätze des Sohnes, die als solche nicht kenntlich gemacht sind, enthalten, daß dasselbe nicht als das alleinige Werk des Vaters bezeichnet werden kann."
