        New South Wales Pocket Almanack, for the year of Our Lord 1814... Published under the sanction and patronage of His Excellency the Governor and Commander in Chief

      Sydney: George Howe, 1813. Paper evenly browning, the spine partly defective; old paper strengthening to inner joints; generally a very good unsophisticated copy in original condition.. Duodecimo; stab-sewn in the original quarter red roan and stiff marbled wrappers, as issued; quarter morocco case. First edition: a superb copy of a very rare Australian imprint in desirable original condition. This copy has an outstanding provenance, having originally belonged to the newspaper editor Ralph Mansfield, signed by him on the title-page and the front endpaper. Mansfield was closely associated with the Almanack's publisher, George Howe (1769-1821). Printer, editor, publisher and poet, Howe was Australia's first printer, sometimes described as Sydney's Caxton. In 1802 he was appointed Government Printer and that same year issued the first book printed in Australia, "New South Wales General Standing Orders" comprising Government and General Orders issued between 1791 and 1802. On 5 March 1803 he began the publication of the first newspaper, the "Sydney Gazette and New South Wales Advertiser", of which Mansfield later joined him as joint editor. Ralph Mansfield, Methodist missionary as well as newspaper editor, was an important figure in the literary community of the early colony, first in Tasmania and from 1825 in Sydney. He became joint editor with Howe of the "Sydney Gazette" on 1 January 1829. In the editorial for that day he declared that his policy would be neither directed against the established church nor exclusively religious, as he believed newspapers were not the place for theological debate, and that his political principles would be like those of Howe: attachment to the cause of government. A month later Robert Howe was drowned and Mansfield became sole editor.Howe's 1814 Almanack is the longest and the most detailed of all the early almanacs, designed as the last of the elaborate issues Howe had been publishing since 1806. It includes a substantial compendium of information about the colony and its history in the preceding quarter century. After 1814 this additional historical information was excluded. All Howe almanacs before the 1820s are of great rarity. Provenance: Ralph Mansfield (1799-1880, newspaper editor); private collection (Sydney).

        Pedestrianism; or an Account of the Celebrated Performances of Celebrated Pedestrians During the Last and Present Century; with a Full Narrative of Captain Barclay’s Public and Private Marches; and an Essay on Training

      Printed by D. Chambers & Co., Aberdeen 1813 - Copper engraved frontispiece, 8vo 8 ¼ x 5 ¼ 286 pp. 19th century ¾ gilt-ruled straight-grained morocco & marbled boards, spine ruled & lettered in gilt, raised bands. Some rubbing to joints and extremities; top hinge weak, light offset to title from frontispiece, partially eradicated ink signature at top of frontispiece and some light foxing, else very good. The first and probably only edition of this work. Lovesey and Macnab assert this is probably the first book on competitive athletics. “Barclay’s training methods were to influence athletics training for over a century” L&M. While L&M could be correct about this work’s role in the evolution of competitive athletics, a couple of earlier works on boxing should probably be considered. Nevertheless, this is quite a unique book. Includes accounts of his various walking matches and wagers, including 1000 miles in 1000 hours for 1000 guineas. There appears to be much competitive activity at this time, as there are a ranking list of walking races of the 18th and 19th centuries (see chapter three). His advice on training includes diet and dress and there are reports of shorter running races as well as walking. Walter Thom (1770-1824), who also wrote a history of Aberdeen, was the father of Alexander Thom, founder of Thom’s Almanac. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A New View of Society: or, Essays on the Principle of the Formation of the Human Character, and the Application of the Principle to Practice.

      London: Printed for Cadell and Davies by Richard Taylor and Co. (part I), for Cadell and Davies, and Murray by Richard and Arthur Taylor (part II), printed by Richard and Arthur Taylor... Not Published (parts III & IV)., 1813-14. 4 parts bound in one octavo volume (230 x 142 mm). Contemporary straight-grained dark blue morocco, spine decorated and lettered gilt in compartments, gilt roll borders, inner dentelles and edges, watered pink silk doublures and endpapers. Manuscript transcripts of several related documents on three leaves and the rear free endpaper, signed J. W. Ford, the son of John Walker's niece. Autograph letter signed by Robert Owen to General Lafayette laid in. Extremities very lightly rubbed; an excellent copy in a superb presentation binding. First edition, first issue of the four Essays – one of forty specially-bound presentation sets printed on thick paper, parts III & IV "Not published" – of "the first practical statement of socialist doctrine" (PMM). According to Edouard Dolléans, this is one of 40 copies bound for presentation: "En écrivant les Vues nouvelles, Owen a surtout pour objet de gagner à ses idées les membres les plus hauts placés de l'État et de l'Église; il fait relier richement par les plus habiles ouvriers quarante exemplaires des Vues nouvelles" (Édouard Dolléans, Owen, p. 145f). A New View of Society is "Owen's first and most important published work, containing the principles upon which he based his educational and social reforms at New Lanark, an account of their application there, and an outline of the means by which his theories might be applied to the nation as a whole. The first Essay … [dedicated to Wilberforce] was written in 1812 and published [anonymously], after it had been submitted to Francis Place for revision ... The second Essay was published in the same year, the third and fourth were privately printed and circulated during 1814, not being published until two years later" (Goldsmiths' Owen Exhibition). The work states clearly Owen's view of social development, stressing his egalitarian educational doctrine. At the New Lanark industrial settlement Owen erected a large new building, the 'Institute for the Formation of Character', which was to contain public halls, community rooms and above all schools for the children at work in the factory, and with a nursery school (what Owen called a 'playground'). The educational work at New Lanark for many years excited the admiration of visitors from all over the world. The 'Fourth Essay' of the book contains proposals at national level, including a universal state educational system, a Ministry of Education, colleges for training teachers, a system of state-aided public works, and the gradual abolition of the poor laws. A two-page manuscript note to the additional front free endpaper, together with a further five pages bound in at the end of the volume, signed by J. W. Ford, states that this copy was originally given by Robert Owen to William Allen, one of his business partners from 1814 in his third ownership of New Lanark. 1814. Allen (1770-1843), a philanthropist and scientist, purchased the New Lanark mills from Owen's previous partners, together with Owen, Jeremy Bentham, John Walker and three others, "in order to establish a model industrial community" (ODNB). The copy was subsequently in the library of John Walker, the largest shareholder after Owen in New Lanark, giving his family the largest financial stake and making the Walkers ultimate heirs to New Lanark. Laid in is an autograph letter from Robert Owen to General Lafayette, written from John Walker's house in Bedford Square, London, some time after Walker's death in May 1824, requesting help for Walker's widowed sister and her niece during their travels abroad: "My Dear General, Permit me to introduce to your kind notice Mrs & Miss Lewis the widowed sister & the niece of the late John Walker F.R.S. of London last known upon the Continent for his love for, & knowledge of, the arts & sciences & for the extraordinary urbanity of his life & manners. Should any occasion arise in the present agitated state of men's minds when these ladies might require advice or protection in a strange land I am sure you will extend yours to Mrs & Miss Lewis [2] as you have always done to those who required them on this as well as upon the other side of the Atlantic. Knowing how many letters you must now receive I will merely add that I remain Most Respecetd Sir, your sincere friend Robert Owen.

        Autograph Manuscript (unsigned).

      - The British poet laureate (named 1813), one of the famed "Lake poets," cranked out lengthy "serious" poems galore ("Thalaba," "Madoc," "Roderick," etc.), but it is for anthologized short pieces such as "After Blenheim" and "Stanzas Written in My Library" that he is remembered, as well as for his nonfiction and letters. Unsigned AM, 1p, 6" X 7½", n.p., n.d. Very good. Slight soiling. Partial transcript of a letter by one "J. Asgill," entirely in Southey's hand. Reads in part, "And while I am thus fighting with Death & Hell, it looks a little like foul play for Flesh and Blood to interpose themselves against me. But if any one hath spite enough to give me a jolt, thinking to falsify any faith, by taking away my life, I only desire them first to qualify themselves for my executioners by taking this short test in their own consciences: Whoever thinks that any thing herein contained is not fair dealing with God & Man, let him -- or her -- burn this book, and cast a stone at him that wrote it." A fascinating if cryptic item. Thus far we have not been able to identify the context of this interesting statement, but it certainly warrants further research. Comes with a handsome 5¼" X 7½" vintage steel engraved portrait of Southey. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

Je suis au régime et ce n’est qu’à la condition de ne pas y déroger que je puis vivre avec mon entérite chronique qui n’en finit pas. J’espère cependant qu’un jour viendra où je pourrai me rattraper», mais il craint d’avoir « deux engagements pour la même heure. » Lettre des dernières années. Claude Bernard est élu à l’Académie Française après avoir reçu un prix de l’Académie de Médecine en 1861. Ces travaux ont un écho bien au-delà du monde de la médecine, il sort un livre qui fait acte « Introduction à l’étude de la médecine expérimentale ». Son ami Balzac est admiratif, Zola s’en inspire dans son manifeste sur le naturalisme, son livre « Le roman expérimental » fait l’éloge de la méthode pragmatique et positiviste du médecin.

Nur von den Waffen dürfen wir Ruhe und Freiheit hoffen. Dasselbe Gefühl, welches das Französische Volk vor 20 Jahren beseelte, um sich zu einigen und die Armeen zu bekämpfen, die auf dem Boden seines Vaterlandes standen, wird heute Euren Muth gegen den Feind entflammen, der, nachdem er den heiligen Boden, der Euch gebar, verheerte, noch Eure Brüder, Eure Weiber, Eure Kinder, in schimpfliche Fesseln schlagen will. Soldaten! Die schönste Zukunft bietet sich Euch dar! Die Freiheit Eures Vaterlandes, die Freiheit Europens, die Wiederherstellung seines Gleichgewichts, das Ende dieses traurigen Zustandes, der schon 20 Jahr dauert, der Friede der Welt, werden das Ziel Eurer Anstrengungen und Eurer Tapferkeit seyn.

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, Edinburgh: 1813 - ROKEBY; A POEM, FORE-EDGE PAINTING SCOTT, SIR WALTER. Published by Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, Edinburgh: (1813) Rokeby a Poem, Walter Scott, Esq. the Fifth Edition Printed for A. Constable and Co. and John Ballantyne and Co. Edinburgh. Mild to heavy foxing on the title page, the rest of the text is clean with some mild foxing. Bound in full red straight grain Morocco, heavily gilt panels on the covers with incorporated blind tooling and gilt spine. The Greta Bridge in Yorkshire, is the feature of this wonderful fore-edge painting. The famous painting the Rokeby Venus by Diego Velázquez was originally housed at Rokeby Park, near Greta Bridge. It is now in the National Gallery in London. Greta Bridge is mentioned in Charles Dickens's novel The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby as the site of Dotheboys School. Dickens mentions the "George and New Inn, Greta Bridge". This is thought to be a conflation of two coaching inns in or near Greta Bridge. The link here is the publican "George Martin", who first ran the inn called the "George and Dragon" to the West of the River Greta, he then moved to the original "Morritt's Arms" built on the East bank of the River Greta as a coaching inn by the Morritt family of Rokeby, in approx. 1756, and he renamed it "The George" as recorded by Dickens (maybe having left his "dragon" behind at the present Morritt Arms!). Later, Martin moved to be landlord of The New Inn a mile to the east of Greta Bridge and renamed that "The George and New Inn". Source: Peter Gilbertson of The Coach House, Greta Bridge.

        Osservazioni odontalgiche sulle cause della carie. Con una appendice sulla formazione della doppia serie dei denti umani e sulla origine della distruzione della radice dei denti lattei.

      Torino, Dalla Stamperia Appiano, 1813 - in-8 (mm 215x140), pp. XX+209+(3), con 2 tavole in rame ripieg. f.t. al termine e il rarissimo antiporta inciso, legatura coeva in carta azzurrina. Prima ed unica edizione di quest'opera di estrema rarità, una delle prime integralmente dedicate all'analisi della carie dentaria. L'autore esamina dettagliatamente le cause esterne della carie (tra cui la corrosione dello smalto con sostanze abrasive, l'uso eccessivo di tabacco e zuccheri, l'accumulo del tartaro, la corrosione da parte degli acidi), e quelle interne; e fornisce precetti elementari di igiene dentaria. Esamina poi le cause che predispongono all'insorgere della carie, i vari sistemi curativi, e i metodi di trapanazione ed otturazione. Infine analizza la formazione dei denti da latte, e le cause che ne determinano la caduta. Le tavole infine illustrano i vari strumenti odontoiatrici, e i denti umani con le loro varie forme e radici. In antiporta curioso ritratto dell'autore inciso da Rinaldi su disegno di Vacca e inserito soltanto in pochissimi esemplari, probabilmente a causa degli evidenti riferimenti massonici. Vittorio Cornelio (1752 - 1832), si specializzò nelle pratiche ciarlatanesche dell'epoca e frequentò negli ultimi decenni del sec. XVIII le piazze dell'Italia centrale e meridionale come medico - ciarlatano. Trasferitosi a Torino sul finire del secolo si convertì alla "medicina ufficiale", e approfondì in modo originale l'allora nascente chirurgia odontoiatrica; incoraggiato dal Buniva e da altri professori dell'Università di Torino, si collocò tra i maggiori odontoiatri europei, ed ebbe pubblici riconoscimenti dalle facoltà mediche torinesi. Sull'importanza dell'opera del Cornelio cfr. L. Casotti, V. Cornelio, in "La Cultura Stomatologica", 1928; sulla sua vita errabonda cfr. T. M. Caffaratto, Il Cavalier Incognito, Torino, 1966.

        Abhandlung uber offentliche Armen- und Kranken-Pflege mit einer umstandlichen Geschichte der ... gemachten Erweiterungs0 und Verbesserungs-Versuchen und der hievon im neuen allgemeinen Kranken-hause...

      Munich, 1813. first. Complete with half title errata and 10 large folding plates (8 copper engravings and 2 lithographed charts). Contemporary marbled boards over half cloth spine, corners and spine worn, interior is excellent with only minimal browning. 3 copies located: Chicago, Uni. Minn., and College of physicians. First edition of this rare treatise, a cornerstone in the history of hospital reform. The author provides a history of public health and advocates for hospitals to have separate rooms with a ventilation system to remove foul air. Following up on Lavoisier's research, this work formed the foundation of what became a long discussion over two centuries about the minimum amount of fresh air per occupant needed to maintain comfortable indoor conditions to prevent the spread of germs. An engraved plate of an architectural plan demonstrates the direction of air flow necessary to properly ventilate a hospital. Häberl's work inspired building designs for hospitals including the construction of the Munich General Hospital in 1813. Häberl (1759-1846) was an acclaimed physician of the National Academy of Sciences in Munich, distinguished for his initiatives to improve the design of hospital facilities by improving air circulation. He invented a vastly improved hydraulic pump, which he implemented in his hospital designs. He was the directing physician for Saint Max, Saint Anna, and Munich General Hospitals before teaching practical pharmacology at the University. In 1834 The Munich Medical Association honored Häberl with a medal for his contributions to public health.
