"Noch niemals ist mir ein Typhus-Kranker gestorben, und ein gleiches Glück glaube ich mit der festesten Gewissheit einem Jeden der die Krankheit wie ich behandelt, versprechen zu können, wenn nicht etwas sehr ungünstige Umstände die Genesung verhindern, (z.B. in überfüllten, schlechten bedingten Lazarethen, bei sehr alten oder höchst schwächlichen Subjekten). - Hierauf gründen sich meine Behauptungen, hierauf meine Behandlungsart." +++ Wedemeyer: Georg Ludwig Heinrich Karl W., Arzt und tüchtiger Physiolog, wurde um 1790 in Elbingerode geboren.

W., der am 15. December 1829 starb, hat sich in der Geschichte der Physiologie durch eine Reihe von experimentellen Arbeiten ein Andenken gesichert. Sie betreffen besonders die Lehre vom Nervensystem, von der Respiration und Circulation.

"Fidelio slumbered till the beginning of 1814, when Beethoven, to his evident surprise, learned that three singers wished to revive it at the Kärntnertor for their benefit. He agreed on condition that he was permitted to make changes. This time the revision of the libretto was entrusted (with Sonnleithner's permission) to Treitschke, an experienced man of the theatre. Beethoven worked at the score from March until 15 May. He found it an arduous task: 'I could compose something new far more quickly than patch up the old... I have to think out the entire work again... this opera will win for me a martyr's crown' (to Treitschke, April). The new overture was not ready in time for the first performance (23 May) [at the Kärntnertor Theatre in Vienna], when that to The Ruins of Athens was substituted. It made its début on the second night (26 May)... The conductor was Ignaz Umlauf. The seventh performance on 18 July was for Beethoven's benefit; his advertisement stated that 'two new pieces have been added'. From this revival, followed on 21 November by Weber's production in Prague, the success of the opera was assured." Dean: Beethoven and Opera in The Beethoven Reader, p. 340.

        A Practical Treatise on the Ordinary Operations of the Holy Spirit

      London - Valpy8.5 by 5; (xx)256pp., 1814. London - Valpy8.5 by 5; (xx)256pp., 1814 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A thoughtfully-distilled but unforgiving assertion of the valuelessness of superficial religiousness. George Faber (1773-1854) was educated at Oxford, where he was made a fellow of University College in 1793. He resigned his fellowship a decade later in order to marry, and took up a series of livings (including Long Newton, to which he is identified as being rector in this edition) before becoming prebendary of Salisbury in 1830. Faber was an evangelical (but not a dissenter) who stressed the importance of faith as faith's own justification, and the absolute authority of the scriptures. Faber completed his treatise on the Holy Spirit in 1800, but was by his own definition 'in no hurry' to publish, preferring instead to reflect on and digest what he had written. The work finally appeared c1813-14. Within, he asserts that people are 'no better than heathens' if their Christianity is outward only. Instead, he advocates a 'radical change of heart' accompanied by a concerted change in 'outward manners. 'Condition: Externally, bound in old Morrocco with gilt lines and damaged label across chipped spine. Corners worn. Internally,hinges tender but otherwise firmly bound. Pages very bright notwithstanding some foxing and damp stain to bottom of first few leaves. Bookplate of Professor David Arthur Pailin to front pastedown. Overall: VERY GOOD..

Den blinde Sweitzer F. Huber gjorde mange bemaerkelsevaerdige opdagelser vedrörende bihold og var et bemaerkelsesvaerdigt eksempel pa, hvordan man med mod og viljestyrke kan overvinde blindhed. Blandt andet beviste han, at bidronningen udvikles fra en arbejder larve. The, since his fifteen years, blind Swiss Huber was called "the father of modern bee science". He designed a famous beehive with movable "leaves" like pages in a book and proved that the bee-queen came from a worker larvae. Huber, who lost his sight in young age, exemplifies how a man of courage can triumph over blindness..

Philadelphia: Cura et Impensis Thomae Dobson, MDCCCXIV [1814]. Half titles present in each volume. Two volumes, octavo. Modern calf binding, supplied half-title volume 2, some staining, otherwise a fine set.& & Hebrew was held in such high esteem by the founders of the American Republic that a story emerged at the time of the Revolution that Hebrew was being considered as a possible substitute for English as the American language. The reason had as much to do with absolute indifference towards anything having to do with England as it had with America’s symbolic view of equating our rebellion against the British with the struggle of the Israelites against the Egyptian Pharaoh.& Ironically, as Hebrew, the language of the Jewish people, gained acceptance and status among the New World gentiles, less than half of the original states, at the time of the 1814 printing, accepted the political equality of the Jew in America.& The study of the Bible was the cornerstone of learning in Puritan America. Indeed, it was oftentimes the only book the common folk would ever read during their lifetime. Despite a drop off in Biblical interest at the turn of the 18th century (in favor of the new developments in science and technology) a major revival was felt a scant decade and a half later. The prominent Protestant Seminaries, principally Andover, felt strongly that the Bible should be studied in it’s true, sacred, language. All entry-level clerical students were required to have a working knowledge of Hebrew. As pilgrims from America began flocking to the Holy Land, they applied their newly found knowledge of Hebrew and the Bible to understanding the ancient world.& In 1812, Jonathan Horwitz, a Jewish/Dutch printer, appeared in America with a box of type in hand determined to publish a Hebrew Bible based on the text by Everado Van der Hooght (1642-1716). Van der Hooght’s first Hebrew Bible had met with great success upon its publication in Amsterdam in 1705 and became a model for many other editions of the Hebrew Bible. Mr. Horwitz quickly met with both personal and financial difficulties in regards to publishing his Bible and sold his share (as well as the current list of subscribers) to Thomas Dobson, the eventual publisher.& The subscriber’s price of nearly seven dollars per volume was certainly exorbitant for the time, yet the need for an accurate, scholarly rendition of a Hebrew Bible for religious students was acute. Both Harvard Divinity School and Andover ordered 40 copies apiece.& VERY SCARCE. A.S.W. Rosenbach, in his American Jewish Bibliography (1926) cites only three known copies in America. Despite the fact that additional copies have come to light in the past half-century, this set remains scarce on the market today. This is a particularly lovely copy.&

        The Siege of St. Quintin.

      London by W.N. Jones December 1 1814 - Broadside, oblong folio, 20" x 8 1/2", hand coloured engraving by Williams, has been folded, printed one side. Satire on the trial of Colonel Quintin (of the 10th Hussars- the Prince of Wales' own regiment), who was court martialled for derelection of duty at the Battle of Toulouse in 1814 during the Peninsulr Campaign. Although found guilty on part of one of four charges, he was subjected only to a reprimand. It was alleged that Quintin's wife had been responsible for saving her husband because she was supposedly one of the Prince Regent's mistresses. The satire is primarily an attack on the Prince Regent.BM No. 12315

        Elements of Agricultural Chemistry

      London - Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1814. London - Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme and Brown, 1814 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. A second edition of Davy's fascinating lectures on agricultural chemistry, illustrated with a number of finely-engraved fold-out plates. Sir Humphry Davy, 1st Baronet FRS MRIA (17 December 1778 29 May 1829) was a British chemist and inventor. He is probably best remembered today for his discoveries of several alkali and alkaline earth metals, as well as contributions to the discoveries of the elemental nature of chlorine and iodine. Berzelius called Davy's 1806 Bakerian Lecture On Some Chemical Agencies of Electricity one of the best memoirs which has ever enriched the theory of chemistry. In 1815 he invented the Davy lamp, which allowed miners to work safely in the presence of flammable gases. Davy's Royal Institution lectures included spectacular and sometimes dangerous chemical demonstrations for his audience, a generous helping of references to divine creation, and genuine scientific information. Not only a popular lecturer, the young and handsome Davy acquired a huge female following around London. When Davy's lecture series on the new subject of Galvanism ended, he progressed to a new series on Agricultural Chemistry, and his popularity continued to skyrocket. By June 1802, after just over a year at the Institution and at the age of 23, Davy was nominated to full lecturer at the Royal Institution of Great Britain. Complete with ten fold-out plates. Condition: In a half calf binding with cloth-covered boards. Externally, water-damage to spine and loss to spine label. Slight cracking to rear joint. Front hinge strained but firm. Internally, firmly bound. Slight water damage to all plates and a number of further pages. Foxing to some plates and first and last few pages, otherwise generally bright. Overall: GOOD (ONLY).

      Paris Che Lefèvre, Libraire 1814 - 6 volumes. First edition thus. With a profusion of fine copper plate engravings throughout. 8vo, contemporary French polished calf, the spines with wide decorated bands in gilt, separating compartments with quadruple fillet lined panels gilt, two maroon lettering labels gilt, marbled boards, marbled edges and end-leaves. A very handsome and attractive set with fine engravings throughout, some minor evidence of age, very well preserved, clean, tight, and in lovely condition. A FINE PRESENTATION OF THE OEUVRES AND OF FONTAINE’S GREAT FABLES AND OTHER WORKS ACCOMPANIED BY A PROFUSION OF FINE ENGRAVINGS. La Fontaine was famously known as one of the important literary group of the Rue du Vieux Colombier which included Racine, Boileau and Moliere. By the 1680s, he was known as one of the first men of letters in France. The FABLES were especially praised by well-known critics and it were well received by the general public. This issuance represents a very lovely printing of La Fontaine’s cherished fables in the original French. The copper engravings are extremely well executed and add handsomely to the appeal of this edition. The FABLES are accompanied by a brief life of Fontaine and a life of Aesop.

A uniformly bound collection of some of the works of Franois Auguste Marie Mignet (1796- 1884) was a French journalist and historian. In eight volumes which are:Portraits and Historical and Literary Records (in 2 volumes); History of Mary Stuart (in 2 volumes); Antonio Perez and Philip II; History of the French Revolution From 1789 to 1814 (in 2 volumes); Charles V's Abdication and his Death at the Monastery of YusteMignet worked slowly and lingered over research, with the exception of his Histoire de la rvolution franaise (1824) which was chiefly a political manifesto in support of the Liberal cause, in form of an enlarged sketch, prepared in four months, in which more stress was laid on fundamental theories than on the facts. Mignet was well known in fashionable circles where his witty conversation and pleasant manners made him a favourite. Most of his time was devoted to study and to his academic duties. Eulogies on his deceased fellow-members, the Academy reports on its work, and on the prizes awarded by it, which it was part of Mignet's duty as secretary to draw up, were thoroughly appreciated by connoisseurs, and were collected in Mignet's Notices et portraits. Mignet's most famous works are devoted to modern history. His Histoire de Marie Stuart (2 vols. , 1851) made use of previously unpublished documents from the archives of Simancas. He devoted several volumes to a history of Spain, which had a well-deserved success, including, Charles Quint, son abdication, son sjour et sa mort au monastre de Yuste (1845); Antonio Perez et Philippe II. (1845). Condition: Handsomely bound in quarter morocco binding with marbledpaper covered boards. Externally, generally smart but with slight wear to extremities and the odd mark to boards.

      London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1814 - 1817. London: Printed for Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, and Brown, 1814 - 1817 Illustrated with 94 illustrated plates by John Grieg after paintings by Luke Clennell, Alexander Nasmyth, and George Arnald, among other artists. First edition. Two volumes. Bound in contemporary full red straight grained Morocco, with five raised bands to the spine, spine compartments elaborately tooled in gilt, beautiful decorative borders stamped in blind and gilt to the boards, gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. Minor toning to the spines, spines rebacked with original spines laid on, light wear to the extremities, minor rubbing and soiling to the boards, some minor spotting to the endpapers, otherwise exceptionally bright pages and plates. Lovely in a contemporary binding. Border Antiquities is a historical account of the border between England and Scotland, told through the analysis of architectural and sculptural landmarks. Specifically, the text discusses churches, castles, cathedrals, towers, monasteries, bridges, and abbeys, as well as personal artifacts. Although he was not the sole author, Sir Walter Scott's extensive introduction, poetry excerpts, and clear affinity for Scottish history that is apparent in much of his writing, designate him as the main contributor to this monumental work. In his 127 page introduction, Scott explains the academic interest in political border rather than mainland regions: "Numerous castles left to moulder in massive ruins; fields where the memory of ancient battles still lives among the descendants of those by whom they were fought or witnessed; the very line of demarcation, which, separating the two countries, though no longer hostile, induces the inhabitants of each to cherish their separate traditions, - unite to render these regions interesting to the topographical historian or antiquary." Scottish Borders were also of personal interest to Scott; in addition to spending part of his childhood in the region, the poet and historian spent the last decades of his life at Abbotsford, located on the banks of the River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. Border Antiquities was illustrated by John Grieg, who designed, engraved, and printed the 94 illustrations after paintings by various artists. In addition to the text and illustrations, Border Antiquities contains a 101 page appendix and 11 page general index. This set was bound contemporary to publication, as the use of straight grained Morocco was popular during the years 1810 - 1840. Even though it's termed "Morocco," implying goat skin, the most common skin used for this type of binding was sheep. As sheep is the least sturdy material for binding, the treatment of the skin makes it sturdier, with the pattern stamped and then glazed. This organic pattern is referred to as English or American straight grained Morocco; on Continental straight grained Morocco, the impression appears more as short diagonal stripes.. 1st Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good.

Edition originale de cet ouvrage peu courant, publié à 500 exemplaires le 24 mai 1814, deux semaines avant l?adoption de la Charte constitutionnelle, qui allait rétablir la monarchie (Courtney, 11a). JOINT : MANUCRIT AUTOGRAPHE de Benjamin Constant : plan de discours, en 28 points. Un grand feuillet 30 x 20 cm (papier jauni, fragile, déchirures et défauts divers). Notes en vue d?un discours sur les suites de la Terreur et l?attitude de Constant lors du coup d?Etat du 18 brumaire [1799] : ses regrets d?avoir contribué, involontairement, aux règlements de comptes contre la Révolution et à cette « fatale journée » : « j?ai été non complice l?auteur, mais témoin ». On sait que Constant, présent lors du coup d?Etat, sera nommé au Tribunat, mais très rapidement écarté par Napoléon (il dénoncera dès son premier discours « le régime de servitude et de silence » qui se préparait). Notre manuscrit semble dater de cette époque, puisque Constant envisage les moyens de s?opposer au régime, en concluant qu?il est indispensable de rester dans « les voyes de la légalité & de la justice ». Il conclut : « Un pouvoir qui a violé la Constitution en vertu de laquelle il existe, ne peut y rentrer ». * Voir photographie(s) / See picture(s). * Membre du SLAM et de la LILA / ILAB Member. * La librairie est ouverte du mardi au samedi de 14h à 19h.

        "Abends zu Körners. Tiefe Trauer um Theodor." - Tagebuchaufzeichnungen aus dem Jahre 1814

Seckendorf einen mislungenen Entwurf eingegeben hatte.- Verspreche einige Vorschläge deswegen aufzusetzen.- [...] Morgen werde ich Dresden mit Freidhof verlaßen. Die gegenwärtige Stimmung ist hier unendlich niedergedrückt. Man litt s. viel, gegenwärtig ist das schlimste die ungewiße Lage der Zukunft." Die Zeilen dieser Doppelseite schrieb der Weimarer Verleger Carl Bertuch (1777 Weimar 1815) ein Jahr vor seinem Tode. Der Journalist und Autor war der einzige Sohn von Friedrich Justin Bertuch, jenem Verleger, der maßgeblich zur Verbreitung der Weimarer Klassik beigetragen hat. Im Jahre 1800 trat Carl in die Geschäfte seines Vaters ein. In den nachfolgenden Jahren wirkte er bei verschiedenen Publikationen mit. Sein Name ist der Nachwelt aber hauptsächlich durch sein Buch "Wanderungen nach dem Schlachtfelde von Leipzig im October 1813" ein Begriff. Mit diesem "Beitrag zur neuesten Zeitgeschichte" schuf Bertuch einen detaillierten und authentischen Bericht der Ereignisse der Völkerschlacht bei Leipzig, die er hautnah miterlebte. Das umfangreiche Buchprojekt vollendete Bertuch in Rekordzeit und konnte es bereits zur nächsten Leipziger Buchmesse im Frühjahr 1814 präsentieren. Beim folgenden Wiener Kongress ab September 1814 nahm er gemeinsam mit Johann Friedrich Cotta als Entsandter der Vereinigung der deutschen Buchhändler teil. Sie wollten dort ein Gesetz zur Eindämmung der grassierenden Raubdrucke erreichen. Aus dieser Zeit hat sich ebenfalls ein aufschlussreiches Tagebuch erhalten, das 1916 publiziert wurde. Unser Tagebuchblatt stammt aus jener Zeit zwischen der Leipziger Messe und dem Wiener Kongress. Im Mai 1814 begab sich Carl Bertuch gleich nach der Messe auf "eine kleine Kunstreise nach Dresden, [...] um mich vor dem gewöhnlichen Geschäftsgang wieder etwas aufzufrischen", wie er schreibt. Hier in Dresden trifft er die Familie des 1813 bei Leipzig gefallenen Theodor Körners und besucht die zahlreichen privaten Sammlungen, darunter auch die Schuh-Sammlung des Baron Bloch: "Seine intereßante Schuh u. StiefelSammlung v. 400 Stück.- Von den einfachsten Holzschuhen, bis zu den reichverzierten Tatarisch. u. Chinesischen Stiefeln." Weiterhin besucht er den Architekten Gottlob Friedrich Thormeyer (1775 Dresden 1842) und betrachtet dort die Entwürfe für die Freitreppe im Stadtzentrum, mit der die Brühlsche Terrasse öffentlich zugänglich gemacht wurde und die Skizzen zu dem Denkmal für Theodor Körner, das Thormeyer entworfen hatte und das am 23. September 1814 in Wöbbelin eingeweiht wurde. Von der Treppe und von dem Denkmal hat Bertuch je eine kleine Skizze in sein Tagebuch eingetragen. Von Carl Bertuch existieren ebenfalls Entwürfe zu dem Grabmal. Eben jene kündigt er in diesen Tagebuchblättern gegenüber dem Apotheker Struve an. Unsere Seite aus einem heute nicht mehr nachweisbaren Tagebuch gewährt Einblick in das kulturelle Leben Dresdens in Zeiten wichtiger Umwälzungen. Kulturgeschichtlich sind diese Aufzeichnungen von hohem Wert, zumal Bertuch großes Ansehen genoss und die kulturellen und politischen Themen seiner Zeit eingebunden war.
