      London: Printed for J. Jenkins... by L. Harrison, 1817. First Edition, First Issue With Pre Publication Watermarks Fifty-Five Superb Hand-Colored Aquatint Plates JENKINS, James. The Naval Achievements of Great Britain from the Year 1793 to 1817. London: Printed for J. Jenkins... by L. Harrison, [1817]. First edition, First Issue With Pre Publication Watermarks Large quarto (13 7/8 x 11 5/16 inches; 352 x 287 mm.). xii, pp. (including dedication, introduction, list of plates and list of subscribers) and [74] leaves of descriptive text. Engraved title with hand-colored vignette and fifty-five hand-colored aquatint plates by T. Sutherland, J. Baily, and J. Jeakes after T. Whitcombe and Pocock. One uncolored plate with plan of the Bombardment of Algiers and plan of the Battle of Trafalgar. Text watermarked J. Whatman 1812; twelve plates watermarked J. Whatman 1811 and two plates watermarked J. Whatman 1816. Bound without the list of subscribers. Contemporary half red roan over marbled boards. Spine with five double raised bands, ruled in blind and lettered in gilt in compartments. Armorial bookplate of William Hutton on front paste-down. A large and tall example (Abbey's copy measured 13 1/8 x 10 5/8 inches). In this copy, which is a first issue with pre-publication watermarks throughout, the engraved-title vignette is colored. This is quite unusual with early issues as all the literature states that only later issues had the title vignette colored. "As in the "Martial Achievements" there are late issues of the plates which must be examined to see that the watermarks are pre-publication. Some copies of this work have one or two additional plates, namely portraits of Nelson and Lord St Vincent. The work is complete without them. Copies were issued with the plates on India paper and also in etched outline. Some large-paper copies have the plates in three states. More sought after than the Martial Achievements, it is becoming uncommon". (Tooley p. 234-5). "Collectors should note that evidence of early state in this book can be found in the title-page vignette, originally issued uncoloured, and coloured only in later issues. The book was reprinted as late at 1840, copies having been seen with watermarks of the date." (Abbey, Life. p. 287). Abbey's copy measured 13 1/8 x 10 5/8 inches. Abbey, Life, 337; Bobins II, 360; Tooley 282.

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Tübingen 17, August 1817, 4 . 3 Seiten mit Adresse öffnungsbedingter Randfehlstelle. An das königliche Oberamt zu Calw, dem er den Taufschein des Kindes der Maria Christiane Bachmaier aus Stammheim sowie die Abschrift des Attests überschickt, mit dem diese in die "hiesige Gebähranstalt" eingewiesen wurde. Auf der zweiten und dritten Seite finden sich die eigenhändigen Notizen des Oberamtmanns Friedrich Braun, der dem Calwer Oberamt von 1808 bis 1827 vorstand, zum vorliegenden Fall.Georgii, Wilhelm August (1789-1819), schwäbischer Mediziner und Revoluzzer. Georgii, Sohn eines Pfarrers aus Degerloch, studierte zunächst Theologie in Tübingen und seit 1808 Medizin. 1816 wurde Georgii ordentlicher Professor der Chirurgie und Geburtshülfe und damit zugleich Direktor der "Chirurgischen und geburtshülflichen Klinik an der Universität zu Tübingen". Als Antrittsvorlesung hielt er "Zwey Vorträge, über den Begriff von Chirurgie und Geburtshülfe und die Bedingungen ihrer Ausübung", in denen er sich u.a. mit der Frage befasste, ob "die Geburtshülfe den Weibern anvertraut werden" solle. Neben seinen medizinischen und wissenschaftlichen Leistungen ist Georgii v.a. als studentischer Sozial-Revoluzzer und Insasse des Hohenasperg bekannt geworden. Als Student gründete Georgii 1806 gemeinsam mit dem Naturforscher und Industriellen Karl Ludwig Freiherr von Reichenbach und dem Botaniker Christian Ferdinand Friedrich Hochstetter die "Otaheiti-Gesellschaft", einen von Cooks Reisebeschreibungen inspirierten Geheimbund, der, die Verhältnisse in Europa anprangernd, die Auswanderung und Errichtung einer Kolonie auf Tahiti anvisierte. Nachdem der Bund bei den Autoritäten denunziert worden war, wurden die Gründer und einige der Mitglieder der Gesellschaft gefangengesetzt: Georgii erhielt wegen "lebhaft geäusserter Abneigung gegen die politische Verfassung Europas" vier Wochen Festungshaft (cf. Horst Brandstätter, Asperg: Ein Deutsches Gefängnis, Berlin 1978, 52)Briefe von Wilhelm August Georgii (1789-1819) sind im Autographenhandel äußerst selten!

Bradbury’s, [date], 1818[?], Price bound 10/-. Near fine. RARE. FIRST EDITION. “A thorough, detailed description of travel along the Mississippi Valley, done with an eye toward settling in New Orleans. Considerable commentary on life in that part of America.” Bradbury’s account of exploration and collecting specimens around the Missouri River: “Living in Manchester in 1808. he applied to the trustees of the Liverpool Botanic Garden for funding to visit America and collect plants. His sponsors were also interested in having Bradbury work to improve the supply of cotton from America to Liverpool. Upon arrival in the Unites States in 1809, Bradbury met with Thomas Jefferson who recommended that instead of setting up his base of operation in New Orleans, Bradbury should go to St. Louis. Jefferson wrote to Meriwether Lewis on 16.8.09 introducing Bradbury, but by the time Bradbury reached St. Louis on 31.12.09 Lewis was dead. In 1811 Bradbury and Nuttall joined the expedition of Wilson Price Hunt and other Astorians up the Missouri as far as the Arikara villages.” â€" Howgego. “After arriving safely in New Orleans, Bradbury dispatched his last collection of plants to Europe with the idea that he would soon follow them. Since his relationship with his Liverpool sponsors had dissolved, Bradbury sent his package to his son, John Leigh Bradbury, who mistakenly forwarded it to Liverpool. Unfortunately, before Bradbury could arrange passage home, the War of 1812 broke out, effectively ending all traffic across the Atlantic and stranding him in American until 1816. Bradbury appears to have waited out the war in New York, all the while anxiously waiting for the moment of his return to England and reunion with his family and the botanical findings that he planned to publish. Meanwhile, in Liverpool, William Roscoe was dividing Bradbury’s plants among several members of the Linnaean Society. Through this process, Bradbury’s discoveries came to the attention of another botanist, Frederick Pursh (1774-1820), perhaps the most unscrupulous naturalist of the era. When he returned to England, sometime during 1816, Bradbury discovered that Pursh had already published his plants in a book entitled Flora Americae Septentrionalis (1814). Though unable to publish a book on his plants, Bradbury did manage to publish his Travels in London during August 1817. â€" Daniel Patterson, ?Roger Thompson, ?J.

        A Complete and Permanent Science of Morals, Founded on Transcendental Philosopy. [or, drop title: Moral philosophy reduced to a complete and permanent science on the principles of transcendental philosophy, as contained in Kant's "Critic of Practical Reason."]

      - n.p. [London 1817] Quarto original wrapper titled in gilt with printed label; printed on the back; title leaf, pp763-784 and separately printed index leaf numbered 785, four hand coloured plates. A presentation from Wirgman inscribed to Wm Constable Esqre on the front wrapper and annotated throughout as a guide to the reader. This a separate printing of Wirgman's article on Kant's moral philosophy in Encyclopaedia Londinensis - a perfect example of enthusiasm on it's way to being mania. Wirgman did four articles altogether covering the array of Kant and these could be bought from him coloured or uncoloured. He then went on to write and publish a formidable line of Kantesian solutions to everything. Along the way he spent the fortune he had made as a goldsmith. As John Timbs - retailer of dusty gossip - described him, "the eccentric Thomas Wirgman, the Kantesian, as a goldsmith and jeweller, made a considerable fortune, which he squandered as a regenerating philosopher." Wirgman was introduced to Kant by Friedrich Nitsch in the 1790s along with Godwin, Henry Richter and Coleridge. Unlike fellow traveller Coleridge, Wirgman didn't run for cover confronted with the indifference or hostility to German philosophy in England. It may have been exactly Wirgman that made Coleridge write "I am no Zealot or Bigot for German Philosophy" to a friend at the same time he wanted to found a German library - just not called German - in London. As said, Wirgman, advertised these for sale but this is a special presentation copy exhaustively made easy to navigate by numerous captions and pointers. William Constable is a too common name to place but there was a Scottish goldsmith William Constable at work around that time.

      Hi, This lot is a paperback copy of the Third Edition of William Lamberts ""Instructions and Rules for playing the Nobel Game of Cricket as practised by the most eminent players"" Published in the Spring of 1817 (before May) so nearly 200 years old. This paperback does not have the original covers or the frontispiece but other than that it is complete and checked against Roger Hancocks guide. The front cover (title page) has tape to the left but the book is badly shaken and could do with new tape or to be rebound as it is very loose indeed, hence the tiny price.

        Memoirs of the Life of Anthony Benezet

      Published by James P. Parke / Merritt, Printer, Philadelphia 1817 - First edition. 12mo. [8], 136pp. Lacking the front board and frontispiece, rear board detached but present, pages toned but uncut, wear along the spine and wear affecting a couple letters of the inscription, good plus. Housed in a half morocco clamshell case. A marvelous association copy, Inscribed by the author on the title page: "Prince Saunders with the Author's respects." The Library Company of Philadelphia has six works by Prince Saunders, some inscribed by him to Philadelphia abolitionists, but we have not found a single copy of any book presented to him or known to have been in his library. This book is the memoir Anthony Benezet, a French-born abolitionist, who founded one of the earliest anti-slavery societies in the world in Philadelphia in 1775. Born in New England, Saunders was an African-American scholar who went to England. There he met William Wilberforce, who encouraged him to go to Haiti. Saunders became the confidant of Haitian Emperor Christophe, and wrote The Haytian Papers. The following year he came to Philadelphia, where he met several anti-slavery leaders including Roberts Vaux, a noted Philadelphia-born jurist and abolitionist. "Polished and witty, he became a confidant of Christophe, vaccinated his children, and was entrusted by him with an embassy to England. Saunders was impressed with the black king and his black kingdom. To express this feeling he edited the Haytian Papers, a translation and commentary of the Code Henri. In 1818 Saunders came to Philadelphia . and made the acquaintance of the Philadelphia anti-slavery leaders. One of the most important of these was William Rawle . Another was Roberts Vaux, a tireless Quaker man-of-good-works, to whom Saunders wrote." LCP, Negro History 1553-1903 #74 (being an 1822 ALS to Vaux). [Attributes: First Edition]

        Eccentric Excursions: or, Literary & pictorial sketches of countenance, character, & country in different parts of England & South Wales. Interspersed with curious anecdotes. 4to.

      R.S. Kirby. [1817] - Hand-coloured front., engr. titlepage, 100 numbered hand-coloured plates (3 folding) on 99 leaves designed by Woodward & engraved by Isaac Cruikshank; pp vi/6 mounted on stub, sl. tear along plate indent of no. 58, plates largely bright & clean, some occasional sl. creasing to text block. Sl. later half brown calf, raised bands, black morocco label; a little rubbed. First published in 1796 by Allen & Co. Copac records only 2 copies, in Nottingham and Leeds, of this edition. Auction records show only two copies having sold since 1980. The plates are those originally published by Allen & Co. and are variously dated 1796, 1797, 1813 and 1814, with the vast majority dated 1796 and 1797. Kirby, who published in London between 1800 and 1850, appears to have purchased Allen?s old stock of plates and made up as many complete versions as he could. The scarcity of this edition indicates that he did not have enough plates to make very many. George Moutard Woodward, 1760-1809, was a caricaturist and friend of Thomas Rowlandson. Drawn much in the style of his contemporary Henry Bunbury, Woodward?s style was often coarse and extravagant but displaying ?a singular wealth of imagination and insight into character? A drinking partner of the more illustrious caricaturist Rowlandson, Woodward died destitute in the Brown Bear pub in Covent Garden. Eccentric Excursions is in Woodward?s familiar style, humorously observing rural and urban life across England & Wales.

Toward the end of volume I are a series of translations, including selections from Virgil, Homer's Iliad, and others. Volume III includes translations of two odes by Horace. Throughout are poems to or about figures important in Portuguese history and literature, such as Vasco da Gama, Camões, and the Infante Dom Henrique, as well as one on the discovery of America by Columbus. In volume III, from page 176 to the end, are a series of neo-Latin poems.Ribeiro dos Santos (1745-1818), philologist, librarian, jurist, literary historian and poet, was a native of Massarellos (Porto). Innocêncio considered him "um dos mais respeitaveis, eruditos e fecundos escriptores que Portugal produziu no seculo passado" (I, 247). With a doctorate in canon law, he served as librarian of the University at Coimbra, where he took a significant part in the reorganization of the library, and later at the Bibliotheca Publica de Lisboa, playing a key role in the formation of the future Biblioteca Nacional. Ribeiro dos Santos was, according to Maxwell, Pombal, a "key figure in the reform of the teaching of canon law at Coimbra and theoretician of regalism in church questions." He was responsible for much of the content of the 8-volume Memorias de litteratura published by the Real Academia das Sciencias (of which he was a founding member), a translation of Aristotle's Poetics directly from the Greek, and much more. When Robert Southey made his second visit to Portugal, this "man of rank and of learning" permitted Southey use of his collection and papers (letter to John Rickman from Lisbon, January 30, 1801, in Curry, ed., New Letters of Robert Southey, I, 240).*** Innocêncio I, 253 (without collations).

The third section on Astronomy features two large hand-colored diagrams and pen & ink diagrams.The text and tables are written in Carpenter's neat hand, as the practice of good penmanship was presumably integral with the course work. The first section is comprised of simple and quadratic equations, and "Questions producing quadratic equations" written out as rules, examples, and problems. The second section on Surveying includes geometry and plane trigonometry together with surveying proper ("laying out and dividing land", etc.) written out as cases, rules, examples, and problems, and featuring numerous color illustrations. The third section on astronomy is written out in like manner in multiple chapters, including one on predicting and calculating eclipses that features fine color illustrations and diagrams.Of John R. Carpenter man little is known. The Carpenter family was among the first settlers of the Philadelphia area, and removed from there to Salem County in 1742. His father William was active in Quaker affairs, and helped establish the Mannington School in 1793. John, born in 1804, died young, and unmarried, in 1833. A beautifully written and illustrated ciphering book, which documents the way penmanship, mathematics, surveying, and astronomy were taught in North America during the early 19th century.

      Dresden 27.XI.1817. 6 Seiten 4. Schlussblatt alt angeheftet. Wenige kleine Flecke. Friedrich Ludwig Kreysig (1770-1839), Mediziner, Botaniker und Musikwissenschaftler. - An den Verleger Friedrich Arnold Brockhaus wegen des Drucks seines "Systems der praktischen Heilkunde", das 1818/19 in zwei Bänden bei Brockhaus erschien."... Ich bin mit der Ausarbeitung des Manuscripts zum ersten Theil ziemlich fertig und will schon gern vollenden ehe ernstlich gedruckt wird, damit ich noch nach der Vollendung des Ganzen im Zusammenhange revidiren und die letzte Feile daran legen kann ...... es sind Aufklärungen über die ersten Gesetze des thierischen Lebens darinnen, die bisher Niemand ahndete, die mich der Zufall oder der Himmel entdecken ließ und welche durchaus für die Medicin eine neue Epoche und eine totale Umwandlung aller bisherigen Ansichten zur Folge haben müssen denn diese Aufklärungen sind keine eingebildeten oder hypothetischen, sondern es sind neue Grundgesetze des Körpers, deren Wahrheit die allgemeinste Erfahrung bestätigt, so daß kein Mensch an der Wahrheit derselben zweifeln kann und sie bringen auch alle bisherige Erfahrung der Medicin in Einklang mit der Theorie, so wie sie das, was in allen bisherigen Ansichten wahres liegt, erklären und zugleich die falsche Seite derselben in hellem Lichte zeigen ..." - Auf den folgenden vier Seiten weiter über den Charakter des Werks ("die Frucht 30 jährigen Nachdenkens"), die für das Ausland bestimmte lateinische Ausgabe etc.

      London: Printed by Bensley and Son for R. Triphook,, 1817. Translated by Edward Fairefax. 2 volumes, octavo (238 x 143 mm). Contemporary pale brown morocco, gilt titles to brown labels to spines, decorations to spines in gilt, frames gilt to covers, marbled endpapers, gilt turn-ins and edges. Portrait frontispiece to vol. I, vignettes to the text, engraved plate of the original 1600 title page. Slight wear to extremities, occasional light foxing; an excellent set. First edition thus, one of 50 large paper copies. Fairfax's translation was originally published in 1600; the first English translation of Tasso's poetical account of the first crusade being Richard Carew's, published in 1594. This edition, edited by Samuel Weller Singer, includes Fairfax's fourth eclogue and Carew's translation of the fourth canto. "Fairfax's command of the telling phrase and wide-ranging and aptly used scholarship established his reputation. There were several seventeenth-century reprints, that of 1624 being at the order of James I. It is supposed to have been a solace to Charles I during his time in prison and the poem strongly influenced the development of English poetry from Webster to Dryden" (ODNB). This edition is uncommon with just seven copies traced on Copac, none of which are in the large paper issue.

THOMSON [1777-c1840]: Thomson was a Scottish cartographer from Edinburgh, celebrated for his 1817 New General Atlas, published by himself in Edinburgh, John Cumming in Dublin, and Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy in London. John Thomson was a pioneering photographer, geographer and traveler. He was one of the first photographers to travel to the Far East, documenting the people, landscapes and artifacts of eastern culture. In April 1862 he left Scotland for Singapore, where he established a studio, taking portraits of European merchants and local ‘types' and places. He traveled extensively throughout the mainland territories of Malaya and Sumatra, exploring the villages and photographing the native peoples. After visiting Ceylon and India from October to November 1864 to document the destruction caused by the recent cyclone, Thomson sold his Singapore studio and moved to Siam, where he undertook a series of portraits of the King of Siam and other senior members of the royal court. He then moved on to Phnom Penh and took photographs of the King of Cambodia and other members of the Cambodian Royal Family, before traveling on to Saigon. From there he returned to Bangkok briefly, before returning to Britain in May or June of 1866. Upon returning home, his work among the street people of London cemented his reputation and is regarded as a classic work of social documentary which laid the foundations for photo-journalism. His most famous and stunning 4 volume set: LLUSTRATIONS OF CHINA AND ITS PEOPLE remains one of the best early photographic studies of Chinese people and architecture. We believe this work came from his THE CLASSICAL AND HISTORICAL ATLAS REFRENCES: Wikipedia: John T.Thomson: A LIST OF HIS PUBLICATIONS: The Cabinet Atlas The Classical and Historical Atlas The New General Atlas, 1817 The Traveller's Guide through Scotland and its Islands, 1829 The Edinburgh School Classical Atlas, 1831 Atlas of Scotland, 1832 Color scans of this & most other items are posted to our website. .

        Journal des dames et des modes.

      Paris, 1817-1823. ____ Le 'Journal des dames et des modes' est l'une des premières revues de mode illustrées françaises. Cet ensemble est illustré de 451 gravures de mode en couleurs. Ce Journal a été fondé en 1797 et fut publié jusqu'en 1839. C'était le plus important des journaux de mode nés sous le Directoire et peu à peu il absorba tous ses concurrents. On en a fait une contrefaçon à Francfort. Les gravures étaient en majorité, l'oeuvre de La Mésangère, mais certaines sont dues à Horace Vernet, Gavarniou, Baquoy. Passionné de mode, avec des idées très arrêtées sur ce qui constituait le bon et le mauvais goût, la Mésangère fit de sa revue l'arbitre des élégances parisiennes, voire européennes. On ne trouve jamais de collection complète, elle compte 3624 planches ! 1817, 21e année, du n° 14 du 10 mars au n° 72 du 31 décembre 1817. 64 gravures en couleurs H.T. -1818, 22e année, du n°1 au n° 72, manque les n° 2, 3, 21 et 65. 72 gravures en couleurs H.T. -1819, 23e année,du n°1au n°72, manque les n°8, 16, 20, 53 et 65 ainsi que lefeuillet de texte 417/418. 55 gravures en couleurs H.T. -1820, 24e année, du n° 1 au n° 72. 62 gravures en couleurs H.T. -1821, 25e année, du n° 1 au n° 72, manque les n° 4 et 57. 79 gravures en couleurs H.T. -1822, 26e année, du n° 1 au n° 71, manque le n° 72. 82 gravures en couleurs H.T. -1823, 27e année, du n° 25 du 5 mai au n° 60 du 31 octobre. 37 gravures en couleurs H.T. *-------* The 'Journal des dames et des modes' is one of the first French fashion magazines. This set is illustrated with 451 color engravings. This Journal founded in 1797, was published until 1839. It was the most important newspaper of fashion and it gradually absorbed all its competitors. There was an counterfeit in Frankfurt. The engravings were in majority, the work of La Mésangère, but some are due to Horace Vernet, Gavarniou, Baquoy. Very fond of fashion, with strong ideas on what is good or bad taste, La Mésangère made his magazine the arbiter of elegance in Paris and even in Europe. One never finds a complete collection, it must have 3624 plates! 7 volumes in-8. Collation : Demi-veau vert, dos orné de ?lets. (Reliure de l'époque.).

        The Byrth, Lyf, and Actes of Kyng Arthur; of His Noble Knights of the Rounde Table, Theyr Merveyllous Enquests & Adventures ..

      London: Longman, Hurst, 1817. Hardcover. Near fine. Two large 8vo volumes. (4),lxiii,(3),xxxix,(1)383,(1);(4)495,(1)pp. Printed from Caxton's edition of 1485. With an Introduction and Notes by Robert Southey, the Poet Laureate of England. First edition with Southey's notes. Each volume with a large woodcut on the title page showing a knight and a dragon. Engraved gothic and figural initials. Contemporary binding of full near black morocco, spines in six compartments with raised bands, top edges gilt; gilt inner dentelles; marbled endpapers. Text blocks are remarkably free of the usual foxing that dogs this edition. Neat bookplates in each volume. A near fine set. This is the ninth printing of Malory, after Caxton (1485), De Worde (1498 & 1529), Copland (1557), East (ca. 1575), Stansby (1634) and two 12mo. editions in 1816. This was the first modern text of Malory which attempted to recapture the text as it was first published by Caxton. All contemporary advertisements indicate that this edition consisted only of 250 copies with 50 copies on large paper, though there is some suggestion from notes in the publisher's books that as many as 1000 copies may have been printed. This is the regular edition, still impressive at 10 inches, and a scarce and important printing.

        Arthrokakologie oder über die Verrenkungen durch innere Bedingung und über die Heilkraft, Wirkungs- und Anwendungsart des Glüheisens bey diesen Krankheitsformen.

      Wien, im Verlage von Heubner und Volke, 1817, 4, XVI, 195 pp., Frontispice und 7 Kupferstichtafeln, Pappband feines Exemplar. Erste und einzige Ausgabe des seltenen und klassischen Werkes über degenerative Gelenkserkrankungen von Johann Nepomuk Rust (1775-1840), verfasst in seinen ersten Jahren in Berlin. Im ersten Abschnitt werden die Theorie der Krankheit und ihrer Behandlung, die Exposition, die Ätiologie, die Diagnose, die Prognose und Cur der Krankheit dargestellt, im zweyten Abschnitt werden Praktische Fälle, durch die Beobachtungen über die Coxarthrocace, die Behandlung der Coxarthrocace mit Anwendung des Glüheisens, die Beobachtungen über die Omarthrocace, Gonarthrocace und über die Spondylarthrocace ausführlich dargestellt. "Was die Verhärtungen und widernatürlichen Auswüchse in den Gelenken, die Gelenkmäuse betrifft, so hatte bereits Pare in einem solchen Falle mit Erfolg die Ausschneidung gemacht. Nach seiner Ansicht entsprachen diese Konkretionen einem Niederschlage der Gelenkflüssigkeit. Das 18. Jahrhundert brachte es betreffs der Natur und Entstehung der Gelenkkörper zu einer grossen Zahl von Theorien, die mit nicht allzu wesentlichen Modifikationen zum grossen Teile noch heute in Geltung sind. Man deutete diese Körper als abgetrennte Knochensplitter (Morgagni, Monro), als losgelöste Knorpel Wucherungen (Ford), indurierte Gelenkdrüsen (Theden) u.s w. und die meisten Chirurgen dieser Periode (Bromfield 1733, J. Hunter, G. A. Richter 1782, Desault 1791) schnitten sie bei grösserer Schmerzhaftigkeit unter Hautverschiebung, also subkutan, aus. Rust (1817) benannte die zur "freiwilligen Verrenkung" führende Erkrankung der verschiedenen Gelenke als Arthrocace und definierte sie als eine centrale, von der Entzündung des Periosteum internum (Markhaut) ausgehende Caries. Als Grundlage dieser Erkrankung betrachtete er neben den verschiedenen Dyskrasien (Skrofulose u.s.w.) die metastatischen Ablagerungen nach Pocken, Scharlach, Zurücktreibung der Flechten oder der Krätze, Milchversetzung u.s.w. und endlich mechanische Einwirkungen. Rust schied dabei die Arthrocace scharf von dem Tumor albus und bezeichnete als letzteren nur die von den Weichteilen ausgehende Erkrankung (rheumatische Form Bell's)." Friedrich Helferich, Gesch. Chir. In: Puschmann's Hdb. Gesch. Med. I, p.113 "Fragt man, was Rust in seinen Schriften der ärztlichen Kunst und der Wissenschaft wahrhaft Förderliches zugebracht habe, so ist unter dem Vielen, was hier unmöglich im Einzelnen nachgewiesen werden kann, vorzugsweise hervorzuheben: die Classification der Geschwüre nach ihrem Charakter, die Diagnostik der Arten und die ralionelle Behandlung derselben die Diagnostik und Behandlung der Nekrose des subcutanen Zellstoffs und der aponeurotischen Häute die Diagnostik gewisser Krankheiten der Hoden die Einführung der Inuncitons- und Hunger-Cur bei inveterirten syphilitischen und anderen dyskratischen Krankheiten die Feststellung der lndicationen zur Verrichtung von wichtigen Operationen, und der Weise, wie nach denselben der Heilungs-Process zu leiten sei die Diagnostik der, Gelenkkrankheiten und deren Behandlung. Aber in allen übrigen seiner Werke und Abhandlungen wird man eben so vielfach neue Ideen entwickelt finden, oder einer Anschauungsweise der betreffenden Objecte begegnen, welche das Wesentliche mit Leichtigkeit herausfindet, und zu einem richtigen und überzeugenden Urtheile führt. Wenn man auch ein tieferes Eingehen in die feineren physiologischen Verhältnisse in seiner Darstellung zuweilen vermisst, so muss man doch anerkennen, dass die Art, wie er den Organismus als Totalität auffasste, ihn immer richtig leitete, und daß er, ohne sich in die Irrwindungen der Details zu verlieren, auf geradem Wege ans Ziel gelangte. Die Art seiner Darstellung ist immer anziehend durch den Reichthum und die Fülle des Ausdrucks, der ihm zu Gebote stand, durch den schönen rhetorischen Bau seiner Perioden, durch die logische Schürfe, und durch die Kunst/für das, was er zu erweisen hat, gerade die überzeugendsten Argumente beizubringen. Wer den Geist von Rust's Schritten sich vergegenwärtigen will, der studire seine angeführten "Aufsätze und Abhandlungen aus dem Gebiete der Medicin, Chirurgie und Staatsarzneikunde", die ebenso als ein Vermächtnis für die Nachlebenden anzusehen sind, wie einst Hufeland's Enchiridion. Rust's operative Fertigkeit war besonders in früheren Jahren ausgezeichnet zu nennen. Einfachheit des Handelns und des anzuwendenden Instrumenten-Bedarfs galten ihm bei seinen Operationen als Hauptgrundsatz, und darum finden wir nicht viel Apparate und Instrumente in der Akiurgie, die seinen Namen tragen. Wo er aber eine Neuerung für nöthig hielt, wüsste er Zweckmäfsigkeit und Einfachheit mit einander zu verbinden, und deshalb werden seine Staarnadel, sein Staarmesser, Steinschnittmesser, Mastdarmfistelmesser, Bruchschnittmesser, seine Aneurysma-Nadel, Unterbindungs-Pincette, Amputations-Säge und sein Feld-Tourniquet nicht in den Rüstkammern vom Roste zernagt werden, sondern in den Händen der Chirurgen verbleiben. Rust's Persönlichkeit übte weniger durch sein erstes Erscheinen, als durch das bei der Rede alsbald hervortretende Geistige die Gewalt aus, welche diejenigen fesselte, die ihm näher traten. Bei der Rede blitzte sein mitsprechendes Auge auf, und der lebhafte Blick desselben drang zugleich mit der Kraft seines Wortes in seinen Zuhörer hinein. Die Lebendigkeit seiner Darstellung und die derselben zum Grunde liegende Logik verfehlte dann selten den Zweck, zu überzeugen, und selbst bei Discussionen über Gegenstände von zweifelhafter Art konnte man sich leicht durch die Fülle der von ihm beigebrachten Argumente zu seiner Ansicht hingezogen fühlen. Sein Scharfblick ließ ihn schnell die Stärken und die Schwächen an den Sachen herauserkennen, und diese wie jene wußte er nach Bedürfniss in helles Licht zu stellen, je nachdem es galt, Etwas zu fördern oder zurückzuweisen. Und da er meistenteils' von Principien ausging und zunächst diesen Anerkennung und Geltung zu verschaffen wußte, so war er bei Durchführung von Ansichten im Speziellen gemeinhin gegen Oppositionen im Vortheil. Daher seine in den meisten Fällen siegreichen Demonstrationen in Angelegenheiten, welche überhaupt der Discussion unterlagen. So blieb er niemals Nebenperson, sondern wurde schnell Mittelpunkt."

Wien, 1817) made a wide distinction between tumor albus proper and scrofulous inflammation of joints.Waller 8331 Lesky 563 Goldschmid 106.
