        Histoire des Polypiers Coralligenes Flexibles, vulgairement nommes zoophytes.

      A. Caen 1816 - Octavo: lxxxiv, 559, (1)pp. 19 plates of corals, plus one folding printed chart. Quarter bound calf with spine label and gilding, marbled boards and endpapers. Minimal edge wear, lovely book. A contemporarily bound copy of the first edition. Lamouroux was a noted botanist who developed his own system or morphology. He was especially interested in such asymmetrical forms as those exhibited by coral and other marine plants. "By studying a great number of exotic algae brought back by scientific expeditions to the tropical seas and especially the Pacific Ocean, Lamouroux was able to describe many new species. In particular he furnished one of the first descriptions of the algae of Australia. Moreover, Lamouroux was the first to be concerned with the geographic distribution of marine algae, (D. S. B.) The plates comprise more than 100 different illustrations of the marvellous, crystalline forms of corals and are all after drawings by the author. In the long introduction, the author discusses at length all the earlier writers on the genus. In the course of this he refers in passing to South Seas exploration. His topic is the family worldwide, so he describes Atlantic as well as Pacific, Northern as well as Southern species. Most of the text is a full presentation of the orders and genera. Their native regions are noted, and those coming from Australia and the South Seas are of course numerous. Of the 624 entries, 129 refer directly to Australia, or the 'Austral' sea, including many relating specifically to the Tasmanian coast. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Plate 377, Cladiolus carneus (Painted Lady)

      Paris 1816 - This exquisite, hand colored stipple engraving, “Plate 377, Cladiolus carneus” measures 21.25” x 14” and is in very good condition with slightly cropped edges, light foxing and evidence of printing runoff from being bound. This flower, commonly called a Painted Lady, is from the genus Gladiolus in the iris family. Naturalistically depicted, it is colored with a long stem and dark green leaves and white, sword-shaped petals. Also illustrated on the engraving are records of the anatomical features of this species including the bulb and flowers, so that the flower could be identified with precision and cultivated to perfection. In each illustration, the flowers are classical "portraits" which lack backgrounds or settings. The regal simplicity of the compositions allows the viewer to focus without distraction on the beauty and delicate complexity of the plants themselves. Les Liliacées was Redouté’s largest and most ambitious work and is generally considered his masterpiece, arguably rivaled only by Les Roses. Produced under the patronage of the Empress Josephine, for whom Redouté worked as botanical artist at her estate at Malmaison, these pristine examples represent landmark works in the field of flower illustration. The title Les Liliacées is misleading, as the work was of a much broader scope, including representatives of the lily, amaryllis, iris, orchid, and other families. The plates were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method that the artist himself perfected when he was unsatisfied with the effects garnered by traditional copper-plate engraving. As Redouté shrewdly observed, the delicacy and subtle elegance of his compositions could only be captured using a printing method equally fine. The luminosity of stipple engraving is particularly suited to the reproduction of botanical detail. The medium involved engraving a copper plate with a dense grid of dots that could be modulated to convey delicate gradations of color. Because the ink rested on the paper in miniscule dots, it did not obscure the "light" of the paper beneath the color. After this complicated printing process was complete, the prints were finished by hand in watercolor, so as to conform to the exquisite models Redouté provided.

        Resultate der in der Kaiserlich Russischen Hospitälern im Württembergischen gemachten Ausschälungen aus dem Schultergelenk und dem Mittelfuss so wie den anderen ungewöhnlichen Amputationen.

      - Stuttgart, bey Gottlieb Hesselbring, Tübingen, in Commission bey Chr. Fr. Osiander, 1816, Kl.4°, 70 pp., 3 gefalt. lith. Foliotafeln mit 18 Abb., Pappband. Erste und einzige Ausgabe - Selten! - "Den achten April 1814 wurden in die drey Schlösser Hornegg, Waldenbuch und Solitude über dritthalbtausend kranke Russen aufgenommen, unter welchen 1875 sehr schwer, auf jede denkbare Art, verwundete sich befanden. Den zweyten May wurde mir von Sr. Königlichen Majestät, auf Ansuchen des Kaiserlich Russischen Gesandten, Herrn Geheimen Rath, Gollowkin, die Direction über dies Hospitäler aufgetragen." Vorrede - Karl Christian Klein (1772-1825), "zu Stuttgart, war daselbst als Sohn des württembergischen Leibchirurgus Klein am 28.Januar geboren, trat 1788 in die Karlschule, erhielt 1793 mit der "Diss. Sistens monstrorum quorundam descriptionem" das Doctordiplom und ging dann nach Würzburg und 1794 nach Frankfurt, wo er in den unter Goercke's Leitung stehenden dortigen preussischen Feldspitälern seine Kenntnisse vermehrte. Nach weiteren Studien in Jena, Halle, Göttingen u.s.w. wurde er 1796 als herzoglich württenbergischer Leibmedicus und darauf auch als Stadt- und Amts-Chirurgus in Stuttgart angestellt, und ihm zugleich die Aufsicht über das "allgemeine Kranken- und Geburtshaus übergeben, auch erhielt er den Titel eines herzoglichen Hofmedicus. Sein Ruf als Arzt und Operateur verbreitete sich bald in weiteren Kreisen. 1817 erschien seine erste Schrift: "Chirurgische Bemerkungen" (Stuttgart), ebenso eine hier nicht näher anzuführende ästhetische Schrift. Andere Arbeiten, z.B. über den Kaiserschnitt, Blasenverletzungen, Stein- Luftröhrenschnitt, Durschneidung der Nerven bei Gesichtschmerz, Heilung des Kropfes, Castration, Trepanation, Beobachtungen am Kopfe und Rumpfe eines Enthaupteten etc. erschienen in Zeitschriften und dergleichen. 1806 erhielt er die Stelle eines königlichen Medicinalrathes; 1814/15 wirkte er mit grossem Erfolge in den russischen Spitälern in der Umgebung von Stuttgart, auf der Solitude u.s.w. Ein besonderes Interesse bis in seine letzten Lebensjahre widmete Klein der gerichtlichen Medizin, namentlich in Betreff einschlägiger Kopfverletzungen; in seinen Bemerkungen über die bisher angenommenen Folgen des Sturzes der Kinder auf den Boden bei schnellen Geburten" (Tübingen 1817) suchte er festzustellen was davon zu halten sei. Auch interessierte er sich für magnetische Curen, die er schon 1790 in Stuttgart kennen gelernt hatte, und veröffentlichte in 3 Heften (Tübingen 1816; 1819) "Praktische Ansichten der bedeutendsten chirurgischen Operationen auf eigene Erfahrung gegründet", darunter die 2.Abtheilung unter dem Titel: "Darstellung meiner unglücklich sich geendigten Blasenschnitte"; er hatte also den Muth, ausführlich die unter seinen 84 Steinschnitten unglücklich verlaufenen 10 Fälle zu publiciren. 1819 gab er eine "Kurze Beschreibung einiger seltenen Wasserköpfe" (mit 2 Kupfern) heraus und 1825 nachdem er inzwischen Ober-Medicinalrath geworden und den persönlichen Adel erhalten hatte, seine "Beiträge zu der gerichtlichen Arzneiwissenschaft". Sein Tod erfolgte am 9.Februar 1825. Klein's wissenschaftliche Bedeutung ist mehr auf dem Gebiete der gerichtlichen Medicin als der Chirurgie zu suchen; aber gerade seine Vertrautheit mit der letzteren und deren Ausübung war er für die Lösung mancher forensicher Fragen vorzugsweise befähigt."

        Untitled

      Paris 1816 - Jacques Barraband’s (1767-1809) engravings of birds are masterpieces of French ornithological illustration. This stunning portrait, [Untitled], measures 22.5" x 16.25" and is in excellent condition. This image was done for the distinguished ornithologist Francois Levaillant, who commissioned the artist to illustrate his landmark works on exotic birds, including the lavish and striking Histoire Naturelle des Promerops. This bird is expertly hand-colored in rich shades of gray and black with a dark beak and crimson eye. The positioning of the bird, as if viewed from below, allows for the undersides of the wing and tail-feathers to be appreciated. Precise lines define and detail this bird, giving it definition and dimension. The collaboration of Levaillant and Barraband represented a departure from previous ornithological texts in its emphasis on beauty and luxury, with sumptuously colored and flawlessly rendered birds. Apart from their undoubted beauty, Barraband’s engravings display a scientific accuracy that few ornithological artists have matched since. The meticulous hand-colored engravings in Levaillant's publications were unmatched for the delicate modulations of tone and color, fine lines and perfect draftsmanship, making them exceptional in their richness and tonal variation. Each feather is described by dozens of parallel lines, providing remarkable detail and naturalistically textured color. Some of the prints are embellished with touches of gold leaf on the feathers of the cheeks and shoulders of the birds, emphasizing the preciousness of the plates and reproducing the iridescence of the birds’ feathers. The present selection of images represents an opportunity to acquire spectacular engraving by a foremost 19th-century natural history artist.

        Memoirs of My Own Times, Volume II

      Abraham Small, Philadelphia 1816 - First edition. Volume Two only. Fair in original paper covered boards with spine nearly perished, spine lable present but chipped/cracked, front and rear endpapers detached but present, both boards detached. This is second book of the vast, defensive, three volume memoir by one of the most senior and controversial officers in Continental Army/United States Army. He has been characterized by the historian Robert Leckie as a general who "had never won a battle or lost a court-martial" and this volume catalogues several of his vindications in the face of charges that he abused his power or was negligent. He both held high offices and was tarnished by his intriques: he was the most senior officer in the US Army after Washington and Hamilton and was first governor of the Louisiana Territory, yet he resigned his first commission due to corruption charges, was later proved to have been in secret negotiations with the Spanish to set up a fief of his own in Kentucky, was suspected of conspiracy with Aaron Burr to set up an independent nation in the West, and was court-martialed by James Madison, which is the concern of the first chapter of the book .
