        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. Poletti, p. 46; Wellcome, II / p. 393 (senza il ritratto). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

      Munich 1813 - 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.

        Journal of a Tour in Iceland in the Summer of 1809

      Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme & Brown, London 1813 - 2 volumes;[7]+cvi+369 pages; [3]+391+[15]pages (lacks folding frontispiece map in volume 1), two folding maps, 1 full page map, 2 folding plates, 3 full-page plates and some woodcut text figures. Octavo 8 1/2" x 5 1/2") Bound in half brown calf, raised bands, gilt titles, marbled boards. Second edition with additions. Sir William Jackson Hooker KH FRS was an English systematic botanist and organizer, and botanical illustrator. He held the post of Regius Professor of Botany at Glasgow University, and was Director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. He enjoyed the friendship and support of Sir Joseph Banks for his exploring, collecting and organizing work. Hooker inherited enough money to be able to travel at his own expense. His first botanical expedition—at the suggestion of Sir Joseph Banks—was to Iceland, in the summer of 1809. The specimens he collected, along with his notes and drawings, were destroyed by fire on the homeward voyage; an incident in which he nearly lost his life. His good memory, however, aided him to publish an account of the island, and of its inhabitants and flora; his Tour in Iceland, 1809, was privately circulated in 1811 and reprinted in 1813.Settling at Halesworth, Suffolk, he devoted himself to the formation of his herbarium, which became of worldwide renown among botanists. In 1816 the British Jungermanniae, his first scientific work, was published. This was succeeded by a new edition of William Curtis's Flora Londinensis, for which he wrote the descriptions (1817–1828); by a description of the Plantae cryptogamicae of Alexander von Humboldt and Aimé Bonpland; by the Muscologia, a very complete account of the mosses of Britain and Ireland, prepared in conjunction with Thomas Taylor (1818); and by his Musci exotici (2 vols., 1818–1820), devoted to new foreign mosses and other cryptogamic plants. Hooker succeeded in convincing the British government that botanists should be appointed to their expeditions. While his works were in progress his herbarium received large and valuable additions from all parts of the globe, and his position as a botanist was thus vastly improved. He was made a Knight of the Royal Guelphic Order and a Knight Bachelor in 1836, and in 1841 he was appointed director of the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, on the resignation of William Townsend Aiton. Under his direction the gardens expanded from 10 to 75 acres, with an arboretum of 270 acres, many new glass-houses were erected, and a museum of economic botany was established. He was engaged on the Synopsis filicum with John Gilbert Baker when he contracted a throat infection then epidemic at Kew. Condition: Rebacked with attractive leather and gold stamped. Original marbled boards. Previous owner's book plates on front paste downs and end papers, some minor foxing at back end papers. A very good copy. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Horloge marine à tourbillon dont l'échappement est à remontoir indépendant et à force constante, et montre à longitudes, à doubles secondes, à équation et à quantième annuel, exécutées par M. Breguet, pour M. de Sommariva

      vers 1813], [Paris - ____ Très rare prospectus publicitaire d'Abraham Louis Breguet (1747-1823). Il y décrit la "Sommariva", une pendule avec montre "à tourbillon, force constante, et spiral s'ouvrant concentriquement." Le tourbillon est l'invention de Breguet la plus importante : il permet d'équilibrer les différentes pièces qui se trouvent dans une montre. Ce mécanisme impose une rotation à l'ensemble échappement-balancier, qui l'oblige à prendre toutes les positions, ceci en plus de compenser la gravité, permettrait également d'améliorer la lubrification en évitant que les huiles ne se figent. La montre décrite ici portait cette inscription : "Ouvrage de Bréguet, commandé par M. de Sommariva, sans limitation de temps, de dépense, de volume et de composition, commencé en 1802 et terminé en 1813. Effort de l'artiste pour faire de cette machine un monument de l'état de l'horlogerie au commencement du 19e siècle." Cette pendule a été construite à un seul exemplaire et on ne sait pas aujourd'hui si elle existe toujours. Illustré par une gravure sur cuivre. Nous n'avons pas trouvé d'autres exemplaires conservés dans les bibliothèques. *-------* A very rare advertising brochure by Abraham Louis Breguet (1747-1823). He describes the "Sommariva". This pendulum, his masterpiece, was built to a single copy and it is not known today whether it still exists. Illustrated by a copper engraving. We have not found any copy in OCLC, nor Ccfr. In-folio. Collation : 3 pp. Cartonnage moderne. [Attributes: Soft Cover]
