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.

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. - Garrison & Morton No. 5842; Hirschberg 469; Becker Collection, No. 9; Waller 820.

        A Select Collection of English Songs,

      London, for F. C. and J. Rivington; Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown [& 13 others],, 1813. with their original airs: and a historical essay on the origin and progress of national song … The second edition, with additional songs and occasional notes. By Thomas Park, F.S.A. 3 volumes, octavo. Early 20th-century brown half levant morocco by Henderson & Bisset, spines lettered and dated in gilt, marbled boards, top edges gilt, others uncut. Woodcut vignettes in the text, printed music; with the half-titles. Extremities rubbed, an excellent set. Second Edition. The literary antiquarian Joseph Ritson was a cantankerous figure, who nevertheless contributed greatly to literary studies before his various eccentricities multiplied into psychosis. His Select Collection of English Songs was first published in 1783. The collection is sympathetically expanded here by Thomas Park, who had helped Ritson in a number of antiquarian projects before their friendly relations were broken off before Ritson's death in 1803.

        Mounseer Nongtongpaw: or, the Discoveries of John Bull in a Trip to Paris

      M J Godwin at the Juvenile Libray, London, United Kingdom 1813 - Printed by B McMillan, Bow Street, Covent Garden in colophon. Written by the publishers daughter, a then 10 year old Mary Godwin (Shelley) adapted a jaunty vaudeville song into a children's rhyme, ''Mounseer Nongtongpaw,'' which makes spirited fun of English bigotry and greed. Godwin published it, the first work of his prodigious child. Later research suggests a more likely author is John Taylor with the story outline being supplied by Mary. He was the author of 'Monsieur Tonson', which was also published by M J Godwin as another Juvenile Library title. CONDITION Original Pink card wraps dated 1813 to front, advertising for other Juvenile Library titles to rear (light age toning and soiling to covers, mildly rubbed to spine ends) dated 1815 to title page, pp 16 with 12 leaves of Copperplate engravings. Internally bright and clean with only the slightest age toning to page edges, original whip stitching to spine tight and secure, no inscriptions.

        Mimique. L'Art de Connaitre les Hommes sur Leurs Attitudes, Leurs Gestes et Leurs Demarches; D'Apres Lavater; Avec Trente-Deux Planches Coloriees

      Paris: Chez Saintin, 1813. Wraps. Very Good Minus. 12 mo. 5.5 by 4 inches, 14 by 10 cm. [4], 42 pp. 32 hand-colored plates. Scarce, with only three institutional holdings of it located on OCLC. While the work might have been intended as a guide to the "science" of physiogamy, its value to us is in the insights it offers about the unspoken language of expression and gesture and how it might have been intrepreted at the time. Thus we are shown that this particular appearance indicates a person incapable of introspection, this other, the confusion of an incorrigibly heartless, dishonest individual. We might reject the connection between the appearance and the character type, but the belief at the time would certainly have informed actors at the time in how to convey the personality of the characters they were playing, and in everyday life average people had to have consciously sought to mold their behavior to present themselves flatteringly in accordance with the principles set forth in such a work. So this modest entertaining book enriches our understanding of manners and culture of the day beyond that provided in costume anthologies and other works. With the contemporary wraps. Corner creases. Minor soiling and wear.

Hoboken 11, 141. & & First performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on July 16th 1782, with a libretto by Johann Gottlieb Stephanie the Younger after Christoph Friedrich Bretzner. & & "The most important composition of this period, [1780-1783] however, was Die Entführung aus dem Serail, the libretto of which was given to Mozart at the end of July 1781. Originally planned for September, the première was postponed until the following summer (Mozart had completed the first act in August 1781). The opera was a great success: Gluck requested an extra performance, Schikaneder&#39;s troupe mounted an independent production in September 1784 (although the aria &#145;Martern aller Arten&#146; was replaced because the orchestra was incapable of performing the obbligato solos), and productions were soon mounted in cities throughout German-speaking Europe. The earliest lengthy obituary of Mozart, in the Musikalische Korrespondenz der Teutschen Filarmonischen Gesellschaft of 4 January 1792, described the work as &#145;the pedestal upon which his fame was erected&#146;." Cliff Eisen et al in Grove online& & "The composition of this opera coincided with Mozart&#39;s marriage to Constanze Weber and his permanent settling in Vienna as a freelance composer and performer. Despite the intrigues and complications which plagued the premiere, it proved to be Mozart&#39;s most popular opera in his lifetime, partly due to the fashion for plays and operas on oriental subjects. But it was of this piece that the Emperor, according to Niemetschek (1798), made his famous comment: &#39;Too beautiful for our ears, my dear Mozart, and vastly too many notes&#39;, to which Mozart replied &#39;Just as many as are necessary, your Majesty&#39;."

        Autograph letter signed ("Mr. Shelley." in the third person) to Christopher John Pike.

      41 Skinner Street, Snow Hill, n.d., but probably August 1813 - One page, 12mo, with Shelley's red wax seal, red cloth portfolio. Provenance: A. Edward Newton (his sale Parke-Bernet, pt III, 30 October 1941, lot 247; bookplate in portfolio); Roger H. West (bookplate in portfolio). Excellent condition, the seal intact. Shelley writes in the third person: "Mr. Shelley requests that Mr. Pike would give the Bearer the copy of the Settlement in his possession. Mr. S. will return it in the course of the week." Kenneth Neill Cameron provides the most accurate dating for this letter in Shelley and His Circle, vol. III, pp. 244&#150;48. This letter and one other (probably written to Shelley's lawyer, G. B. Ballachey) are the only ones to be known to have been written by Shelley from William Godwin's house, 41 Skinner Street, Snow Hill, in London. The probable date for both letters is 18&#150;19 August 1813, the only two days when Shelley was at Godwin's house and was actively involved in procuring the 1791 settlement of the Shelley family estates as part of his efforts to raise post obit money for the financially strapped Godwin (see also James Bieri, Percy Bysshe Shelley, 2004, vol. I, pp. 300, 340). Shelley had just achieved his legal majority, having turned 21 on 4 August 1813. Christopher John Pike was a solicitor who Shelley and his wife later met at Ballachey's office on 14 September 1814 when another post obit sale was taking place. At this time, however, after Shelley's July 1814 elopement with Mary Godwin (he was married to Harriet Westbrook), both were banned by Godwin from entering his home.

Hoboken 11, 141. &#11;&#11;First performed in Vienna at the Burgtheater on July 16th 1782, with a libretto by Johann Gottlieb Stephanie the Younger after Christoph Friedrich Bretzner. &#11;&#11;"The most important composition of this period, [1780-1783] however, was Die Entführung aus dem Serail, the libretto of which was given to Mozart at the end of July 1781. Originally planned for September, the première was postponed until the following summer (Mozart had completed the first act in August 1781). The opera was a great success: Gluck requested an extra performance, Schikaneder&#39;s troupe mounted an independent production in September 1784 (although the aria &#145;Martern aller Arten&#146; was replaced because the orchestra was incapable of performing the obbligato solos), and productions were soon mounted in cities throughout German-speaking Europe. The earliest lengthy obituary of Mozart, in the Musikalische Korrespondenz der Teutschen Filarmonischen Gesellschaft of 4 January 1792, described the work as &#145;the pedestal upon which his fame was erected&#146;." Cliff Eisen et al in Grove online&#11;&#11;"The composition of this opera coincided with Mozart&#39;s marriage to Constanze Weber and his permanent settling in Vienna as a freelance composer and performer. Despite the intrigues and complications which plagued the premiere, it proved to be Mozart&#39;s most popular opera in his lifetime, partly due to the fashion for plays and operas on oriental subjects. But it was of this piece that the Emperor, according to Niemetschek (1798), made his famous comment: &#39;Too beautiful for our ears, my dear Mozart, and vastly too many notes&#39;, to which Mozart replied &#39;Just as many as are necessary, your Majesty&#39;."

      M.me V.e Courcier,, Paris, 1813 - In-4° (265x206mm), pp. XI, (1) di errata, 383, legatura coeva m. pelle marmorizzata. Titolo in oro su tassello rosso al dorso. Esemplare assai bello, salvo qualche lieve fioritura. Seconda edizione, riveduta e aumentata, del grande trattato di Lagrange sulle funzioni analitiche, stampato per la prima volta nel 1797 e destinato ad avere larghissima influenza in tutta la ricerca matematica ottocentesca e a condizionare in profondo le analisi di matematici come Cauchy, Jacobi, Weierstrass. "Cette seconde edition a plusieurs avantages sur la premiere. Elle est plus correcte ; on a mis plus d"ordre dans les matieres. Enfin on y a fait differentes additions dont les principales se trouvent dans le chapitre XIV de la seconde partie et dans le chapitre V de la troisieme". (Avertissement). "In this book, Lagrange intended to show that power series expansions are sufficient to provide differential calculus with a solid foundation. Today mathematicians are partially returning to this conception in treating the formal calculus of series. As early as 1812, however J.M.H. Wronski objected to Lagrange&apos;s claims. The subsequent opposition of Cauchy was more effective. Nevertheless, Lagrange&apos;s point of view could not be totally neglected. Completed by convergence considerations, it dominated the study of the functions of a complex variable throughout the nineteenth century". (DSB, VII, p. 570) Il Lagrange (Torino, 1736-Parigi, 1813), fra i matematici più insigni del suo tempo, Professore prima alla Scuola d'Artiglieria di Torino, poi, dal 1766, Direttore dell'Accademia delle Scienze di Berlino. In seguito insegnò a Parigi, alla Sorbona e alla Scuola Politecnica e fu membro dell'Institut de France e del Bureau des Longitudes, venendo anche insignito della Légion d'Honneur.

        Réflexions et observations anatomico-chirurgicales sur l'anévrisme. Traduites de l'italien par J. Delpech.

Texte : VI, 470, (4) pp. et iij, 40 pp. (Additions au traité de l'anévrysme). Atlas : (2), 24 pp., 18 planches. Volume de texte en demi-basane verte du temps, dos lisse orné, dos légèrement insolé, notes manuscrites de l'époque (à l'encre) sur la page de faux-titre et au verso de la page de titre des "Additions au traité ." (encre ayant traversé le papier par endroits), sinon très bon état. Atlas en toile grise moderne, couverture bleue d'origine conservée (avec étiquette de titre au centre du plat supérieur), bel exemplaire non rogné. Première édition de la traduction française, augmentée d'un supplément. Antonio Scarpa (1752-1832), élève de Morgagni et titulaire de la chaire d'anatomie et de chirurgie de Pavie, rapporte ici les résultats de ses importantes recherches sur les anévrysmes. Il démontre, pour la première fois, que l'anévrysme n'est pas une simple dilatation d'une artère, mais qu'il est le résultat de modifications des tuniques vasculaires. Il est le premier à décrire de façon détaillée, avec dessins à l'appui, les lésions athéromateuses et évoque "une origine interne à évolution lente". Scarpa décrit ses procédés opératoires, après avoir rappelé ceux de ses prédécesseurs. Notre exemplaire renferme bien in fine, avec une page de titre propre, les "Additions au traité de l¿anévrysme . traduit par C.P. Ollivier" (Paris, Béchet jeune, 1822, 40 pp.). Le volume de texte et latlas paru quatre années plus tard sont devenus très rares, surtout réunis. Waller (8545) possédait l'atlas seul, tandis que Bedford (703) ne possédait que le volume de texte. L'atlas, dont il n'existe pas d'édition en langue anglaise, comporte de magnifiques planches gravées par Adam. Ces 18 planches sont numérotées de I à X (les planches 1, 3, 4, 5 et 7 sont en double état et il existe des planches 8 bis, 8 ter et 9 bis). cf. pour l'édition originale en italien : Garrison & Morton, 2975 : "Scarpa distinguished true from false aneurysms. He introduced the concept of arteriosclerosis." ; Heirs of Hippocrates 1109 : " plates exquisitely executed" ; Leibowitz, History of coronary heart disease, 106-109 : "We feel that it is the first anatomo-pathological description of arterial wall degeneration presented in full detail and well-illustrated . detailed and almost modern approach to the problem of areteriosclerosis .Scarpa's book is basically a surgical treatise and deals with ligature of the principal arteries of the extremities. Only one chapter is relevant to the theory of arteriosclerosis" ; Loria, Antonio Scarpa, 62 : "Scarpa's large and excellent monograph on aneurisms, written on the detailed and comparative studies of the normal and pathologic tissues involved, established for the first time that an aneurism is not a simple dilatation of an artery, but actually the result of profound and significant changes in the arterial vascular tunics. In order to provide a safe pattern for operative procedures on the large arteries he showed them with well-defined illustrations on his topographical sketches. These magnificent anatomical drawings are still considered tremendously important in the study of this well-determined subject today." ; Acierno, The history of cardiology, p. 101.
