        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!

        Destruction of the French Fleet in Basque Roads, April 12th 1809

      London, James Jenkins 1817 - Thomas Whitcombe (1763-1824) The Naval Achievements of Great Britain From the Year 1793 to 1817 London, James Jenkins: 1817 Hand-colored aquatint engraving 11" x 14" English artist Thomas Whitcombe is considered one of the foremost painters of maritime art and the French Revolutionary wars, with works standing today in the Tate, the National Gallery and the National Maritime Museum. Whitcombe painted over 150 works detailing the affairs of English fleets during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, including his contribution of 55 watercolors for The Naval Achievements of Great Britain, From the Year 1793 to 1817, published in 1817 under James Jenkins. For its time, The Naval Achievements of Great Britain was unprecedented in its accuracy, giving the most precise written and pictorial accounts of naval life over a period of 20 years. Never before had a publisher attempted such a complete volume of documentary naval images. Together Whitcombe and fellow marine artist Nicolas Pocock contributed the 55 watercolors for the folio. This selection of hand-colored aquatints from the volume features some of the most historically important and visually stimulating images from these battles.

      Full Book Title: Over 60 letters concerning the art scene in Britain in the latter part of the 19th century, mostly to John Callcott Horsley (1817-1903) who was a painter of historical and domestic scenes, a member of the Royal Academy, and himself the treasurer there from 1882 to 1897. The DNB says he was the 'moving spirit' in organising a series of 'Old Masters' exhibitions at the RA between 1875 and 1890, and that `he was indefatigable in searching for desirable pictures, and in persuading their owners to lend. For such duties he was remarkable well fitted'. The present collection of letters vividly illustrates this talent. It includes correspondence from Lady Butler, G. F. Watts, John Everett Millais, George Scharf, Sir George Grove, the Duke of Bedford, the Marquess of Bristol, the Earl of Cranbrook, Lord Egerton, the Earl of Normanton, Lord Yarborough, Lord Scarsdale. It rather appears that the Reverend John Walker found a rich source of autographs in Horsley who passed on to him a great deal of his apparently ephemeral correspondence Quantity Available: 1.

Textband in Pappe und Karte zus. in Pappschuber der Zeit mit Rückenschild.. *Freiherr Ernst Otto von Odeleben (1777-1833) war königlich sächsischer Oberst und Generaladjutant. Er nahm unter Napoleon 1812 am russischen Feldzug teil und 1813 als ständiger Begleiter Napoleons in der Völkerschlacht von Leipzig. Das vorliegende recht seltene Werk befasst sich mit der Topographie von Bautzens Umgebung in Hinsicht auf die dort stattgefundenen Schlachten 1813, die der Verf. als Beteiligter erlebt hatte. Die große Karte mit dem Titel "Plan der Gegend von Bautzen" wurde von Odeleben selbst aufgenommen und gezeichnet. "Als geschickter Geodät nahm er einen großen Theil der Sächsischen Schweiz auf, stellte vom Winterberge aus ein Cyclorama her und gab einen Plan der Gegend von Bautzen nebst einem Kommentar über die Schlacht vom 21.- 22. Mai 1813 heraus" (ADB). Die Karte enthält links unten eine kleinere Einschaltkarte mit Profilen. Obgleich im Titelwortlaut des Textes von "zwey großen Planen" die Rede ist, scheint das Werk komplett mit dieser einen großen Karte. Vergleichsexemplare erwähnen ebenfalls nur diese Karte und im Text wird nur auf diese Karte Bezug genommen. - Sauber und sehr gut erhalten.

        Something to Look at or the Return of the Embassy

      (London):: (Pubd. Octor. 1817 by J. Johnston),. (1817).. Very good overall. A caricature, unrecorded in the British Museum Catalogue, poking fun at the tradition of explorers bringing individuals and/or animals from their travels back to England, as did James Cook, bringing Omai from Tahiti. As usual, the caricature takes aim at politicians as sycophants and the waste of vast amounts of public money. It is not clear what the "Embassy" is in this case, but it could be the three Kandyan Wars which the British waged in Sri Lanka 1803-05, 1815 and 1817-18. The print depicts an ape with walking stick strolling arm in arm with a gentleman in top hat, tails and cane, together on a London street as a soldier gapes in astonishment at them. The gentleman is saying to the monkey, "Egad Friend it's very lucky I met with you!! but for you John Bull would have had nothing to look at for his 50 Thousand!! mind when you are introduced we have no such stupid ceremony as knocking off heads. Our courtiers kiss bottoms, attend to this & you'll be certain of a Seat or a Sinecure!" Below the image to left and right of title are a French proverb and a line from Shakespeare, "Nimble mischance that art so light of foot. Doth not thy Embassy belong to me". This is a quote from Richard II, Act III, Scene IV, 96-97. The print is recorded at the Library of Congress (see pictures item 2006681631) as follows: "This record contains unverified, old data from an unpublished P&P checklist, "British Political and Social Caricatures, 1655- 1832 ... not in the published catalogs of the British Museum," compiled in 1968 (NC 1470.M4. Vol. 2). Not found in British Museum Catalogue (BMC)." Copper engraving with original hand color, 10 x 14" laid down on card stock. The title "Something to look at" is repeated in ink in a period hand below the impression mark. A couple of closed tears in margins, not affecting image, a little dusty but overall a good copy of an unusual image.

October, in gegenwart der ersten Civial- und Militär-Medicinalpersonen Berlins und eines sehr zahlreichen Auditoriums von studierenden operirt, und ihm beynahe mit gänzlicvher Beybehaltung des operativen Verfahren von Tagliacozzi, eine Nase aus der armhaut gebildet." - - "War dieser Operationsversuch vollkommen befriedigend ausgefallen, so mußte es sehr interessant seyn, ihm einen zweyten Fall zur Seite zu stelen, welcher nach jener , von den Koomas in Indien geübten, und von Mr. Carpue in Lodnon zwey Mal mit glücklichem erfolge wiederholten Methode, operirt war, umd durch erine Parallele beyder, ein rationales und auf Erfahrung gegründetes Urtheil fällen zu können. Bald fand sich zu diesemn zweyten Versuche ein passendes Subject ; eine 5ojährige Frau Namens Christina - - Müller, hatte durch ein krebsartiges Geschwür, schon vor längeren Zeit die Nase verloren; das Geschwür war seit einigen Monathen geheilt, und die frau befand sich vollommen gesund. Es wurde daher ihr am 29. Juni d. Jahres (1817) in beysen des Geheimen-Medicinarathesd Richter, des Professors Bernstein und Doctors Böhm, so wie sämtlicher, das Klinicum besuchenden Studierenden, aus der Haut ihrer Stirn eine neue Nase gebildet ." - - "Die Berliner Universität hat also den Ruhm, daß in ihrem klinischen Institute nach einem Zeitraume von weit über 200 Jahren, in ganz Europa zuerst die Möglichkeit der Nasenbildung nach Tagliacozzi dargethan, ." Graefe - - "Like Carpue, Carl Ferdinand von Graefe* had for some years taught the feasibility of the Taliacotian method of rhinoplasty and during the years 1816-1817 had the opportunity of testing his convictions in a number of cases at the Surgical Clinic of the University of Berlin. Of these he reported three cases in 1818, illustrative of the Italian, the Indian, and what he termed the "German" method, in his Rhinoplastik ; oder, Die Kunst den Verlust der Nase organisch zu ersetzen, a comprehensive survey of the three methods both historically and clinically. Even in his use of the Italian method, Von Graefe introduced certain modifications, the most notable being his rejection of the forceps used by Tagliacozzi for freeing the arm flap, which Von Graefe accomplished with two free-hand incisions in an attempt to spare the larger veins. Von Graefe's determination to improve the Italian method, which derived from his unwillingness to accept the forehead scars produced by the Indian method and perhaps by an exaggerated fear of the dangers of such a "head wound," led him finally to attempt a shortening of the Italian procedure by the immediate application of the flap to the nose, without allowing a period for granulation and thickening, and by a shortening to six days, when possible, of the period during which the arm was .

        Eigenh. Brief mit U.

      Emkendorf, 9. März 1817.. 8 SS. auf 4 (= 2 Doppel)Blatt. 8vo.. Schöner und ausführlicher Brief an Goethes Berliner Neffen Georg Heinrich Ludwig Nicolovius (1767-1839) mit Erinnerungen an Zusammenkünfte mit dem Publizisten Konrad Engelbert Oelsner (1764-1828) in dessen Frankfurter Zeit. &quote;[...] ich sah so eben in der Zeitung, daß Oelsner in Berlin sey - ach ich kenne ihn sehr gut, er war ein Freund meines Schönborns, u. von ihm sehr geliebt, wir haben mit ihm, u. mit Dr. Ebel u. Hofrath Jung [d. i. Johann Heinrich Jung-Stilling], mit die [!] Oelsner uns bekannt gemacht, so schöne Stunden in Frankfurth verlebt - die Bekantschaft entstand in Schwalbach Ao. 1808. - Machen Sie, wenn Sie sie nicht schon gemacht haben, die Bekanntschaft dieses lieben u. interesanten Mannes, deßen Umgang durch Kenntniße, Gesinnung, u. einer seltnen Vereinigung von Herzlichkeit u. Klugheit so angenehm ist, laßen Sie auch Bernstorff seine Bekantschaft machen [...] ach wie hat dieser Nahme mich so reich gemacht - Erinnert mich so auf ein mal an alle die Abende, wo er mit seinen Freunden zum Thee zu uns kam - wie wohl Schönborn dann war, wie heiter u. froh [...] wie oft, in all den verfloßnen Jahren sprach er ihre Nahmen u. nie ohne Rührung aus, sehnte sich nach ihnen u. nach Nachrichten von ihnen, wie es nur wenige zu thun vermögen - denn bey allen seinen Schätzen, wie mein Bruder Christian so schön als wahr sagt - war Liebe sein köstlichster Schatz [...]&quote;. - Im folgenden ausführlich über ihren am 29. Januar verstorbenen Lebensgefährten, den in dänischen Diensten stehenden Diplomaten und Goethe-Freund Gottlob Friedrich Ernst Schönborn, dem Oelsner erstmals in Schwalbach begegnet sei, &quote;er schien ihm bekannt, konnte sich aber nicht recht darauf besinnen, hielt ihn für Klopstock - bis er auf einmal seine Stimme hörte [...]&quote;. - Auf Bl. 1 recto des ersten Doppelblatts eine kleine alt montierte Notiz zur Verfasserin a. d. Hand von Goethes Großneffen, dem Juristen und ersten Goethe-Bibliographen Alfred Nicolovius (1806-1890). - Mit mehreren alten Tintenwischern.

Dies war seine einzige grössere wissenschaftliche Reise ausserhalb Deutschlands... Seine unermüdlichen Aufsammlungen legten den Grundstock des ihm anvertrauten 'Mineraliencabinets' der Univ. Halle.

        Map of the County of York, Made on the Basis of Triangles in the County, determined by Lieu. Col. Wm. Mudge, Royal Arty. F.R.S. and Captn. Tho. Colby, Royal Engrs. in the Trigonometrical Survey of England, by Order of the Board of Ordnance, and Surveyed in the Years 1815, 1816, & 1817, By C. Greenwood, Wakefield.

      Published by the Proprietors, Robson, Son & Holdsworth Leeds, John Hurst & C. Greenwood, Wakefield, June 4th, 1817. - Greenwood's large-scale map of Yorkshire 1830 by 2170mm (72 by 85.5 inches). Large engraved map on eight sheets, dissected and mounted on linen, in four sections, housed within two calf pull-off slipcases, richly gilt. The maps by Christopher and John Greenwood set new standards for large-scale surveys. Although they were unsuccessful in their stated aim to map all the counties of England and Wales it is probably no coincidence that of the ones they missed, Buckinghamshire, Cambridgeshire, Herefordshire, Hertfordshire, Norfolk and Oxfordshire, all except Cambridgeshire were mapped by Andrew Bryant in a similar style and at the same period. From a technical point of view the Greenwoods?Äô productions exceeded the high standards set in the previous century though without the decoration and charming title-pieces that typified large scale maps of that period.The Greenwoods started in 1817 with Lancashire and Yorkshire and by 1831 they had covered 34 counties. Their maps were masterpieces of surveying and engraving techniques, and in view of the speed at which they were completed, their accuracy is remarkable. They mark the boundaries of the counties, hundreds and parishes, churches and chapels, castles and quarries, farmhaouses and gentlemen?Äôs seats, heaths and common land, woods, parliamentary representatives and distances between towns. The price of 3 guineas each compares with the the first edition Ordnance Survey sheets of 7s 6d, though the latter did not relate to complete counties.

        Loss of the American brig Commerce, wrecked on the western coast of Africa, in the month of August, 1815, with an account of Tombuctoo, and of the hitherto undiscovered great city of Wassanah.

      - London, John Murray, 1817.4to. Later half calf, spine lettered in gold. With folding map (mounted on linen). XVI,618 pp.* First English edition. - The Commerce struck near Cape Bojador on August 28, 1815. The whole crew reached shore but the Arabs forced them back to the wreck. They repaired the boat and after their second landing near Cape Barba, they were captured and enslaved by Arabs. After many adventures Riley was ransomed by the British consul in Mogadore. This was one of the most popular books of the 19th century in the United States, probably because of interest in the Arab countries developed in the wars with the Barbary States, and because of its interesting reverse view of slavery - Moors were considered Blacks, and in this narrative they were the owners of white Americans. - Good copy.Huntress 190C; Sabin 71398; Hess & Coger 5681; Playfair & Brown 514: fairly circumstantial.

        Le Règne Animal distribué d'après son organisation, pour servir de base à l'histoire naturelle des animaux et d'introduction à l'anatomie comparée.

Contemporary half calf, gilt decorated spines, marbles sides. A fine copy of the rare first edition of this classic work which Singer in his 'History of Biology' describes as "the most comprehensive biological work since Linnaeus". Cuvier, also called the 'Founder of modern comparative zoology', in the foreword of the present work states that he enters a strong protest against those who would arrange all living creatures in one series. "He emphatically denies that mammals, which come last in the system, are the lowest, or that the last mammal in the series is more perfect than the first bird. Here Cuvier has certainly laid his finger on one of the weakest points of the whole series theory, as expounded by Bonnet and Lamarck, and has undeniably forestalled the conception of the relativity of the degree of evolution as held in modern times." (Nordenskiöld, pp. 339-340). "The most influential exposition of the typological approach to animal classification, representing the greatest body of zoological facts that had yet been assembled; it served as the standard zoological manual for most of Europe during the first half of the nineteenth century" (Norman Library, 567).//Provenance: Armorial bookplate of Le Cte Frédéric de Pourtales.//Dibner, Heralds of Science 195; Printing and the Mind of Man 276; Sparrow, Milestones of Science 42.

        WORKS

      London: John Murray, 1817. First Collected Edition in five volumes (see below) n. Hardcover. Extraordinarily Fine Set in Period MoroccoOf the 1817 Collected Works of Byron. 171 x 108 mm (6 3/4 x 4 1/4"). Five volumes. First Collected Edition in five volumes (see below). VERY ATTRACTIVE CONTEMPORARY DARK BLUE STRAIGHT-GRAIN MOROCCO, DECORATED IN GILT AND BLIND, covers with thick and thin gilt rule border, blind-tooled palmette frame and large blindstamped arabesque centerpiece, raised bands, spine panels with gilt lyre on top of crossed trumpets, gilt titling and turn-ins, all edges gilt. With 11 engraved plates illustrating scenes from the poems. Ashley Library IX, 46. A hint of foxing to engraved material, otherwise only trivial imperfections--AN ATTRACTIVELY BOUND SET IN ESPECIALLY FINE CONDITION, the bindings unusually lustrous, and the text showing almost no signs of use. This is a finely bound and apparently unread first collected edition of Byron's works, published just ten years after his first volume of poetry was printed. It contains the first two cantos of "Childe Harold's Pilgrimage" (completed in 1818), and includes what DNB calls "the sequence of remarkable narratives that began with 'The Giaour' and 'The Bride of Abydos' (1813) and culminated with 'Parisina' and 'The Siege of Corinth' (1815). These were the works that defined and perfected the Byronic hero, whose initial incarnation was Childe Harold. Brooding throughout nineteenth-century European literature, the Byronic figure-usually an aristocrat-embodied a culturally alienated anti-hero, bearing within a dark secret that seemed as threatening to others as to himself." In addition to the works mentioned above, we find here "The Corsair," "Lara," "Ode to Napoelon Bonaparte," "Hebrew Melodies," and 46 shorter verses.

        [Cherries] [Bleeding Heart; Ox-Heart; Maple-Heart]

      [London]: G. Brookshaw, 1817. Aquatint engraving, with some stipple, printed in colours and finished by hand. Good condition, with two expert repairs to the margins. A fine image from Brookshaw's masterpiece: 'Pomona Britannica; or, A Collection of the Most Esteemed Fruits'. George Brookshaw's 'Pomona Britannica' is the finest work on fruit and flowers ever produced. Its breathtaking images display a level of technical virtuosity and beauty that distinguish this magnificent work as a true work of art. As a retired cabinetmaker, Brookshaw produced his seminal botanical study late in his career, at first publishing it in parts and then as a complete edition in 1812. The fact that this outstanding work took ten years to complete is evident in the quality of its images and the care with which Brookshaw executed each individual picture. 'Pomona Britannica' was produced as a visual record of the best available varieties of fruit in an attempt to encourage gardeners to experiment with growing fruit, and illustrates examples found in the Royal gardens at Hampton Court, Kensington Gardens, and the private gardens of the Prince of Wales in Blackheath. 'Pomona Britannica' differs from other botanical works in its dark aquatinted backgrounds and its stylized compositions. By using aquatint to create a contrasting background, Brookshaw manages to produce a truly dramatic effect. His use of stylized composition distinguishes his pictures from the dry scientific illustrations found in other botanical studies and creates an exceptionally beautiful visual experience. 'Pomona Britannica' is not only a didactic study, it is a masterpiece of illustration in which every picture is a testament to the artist's talent and ingenuity. Cf. Dunthorne 50; cf. Great Flower Books (1990) p. 81; cf. Nissen BBI 244; cf. Sandra Raphael An Oak Spring Pomona 40a.

        Flora Londinensis: containing a history of the Plants indigenous to Great Britain, illustrated by figures of the natural size.

      A new edition, enlarged by George Graves and William Jackson Hooker. London, Henry G. Bohn, [1817-] 1835. 5 volumes. Large-folio (481 x 290mm). With 659 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates on 647 leaves. Contemporary green half morocco, spines in 6 compartments with gilt lettering, topedges gilt. A reissue of the second, much enlarged edition. The second edition was published from 1817-1828. "Henry Bohm took over the remaining copies of this second edition and issued them in 1835 with new title-pages, carrying the date 1835" (Stafleu & Cowan 1286). The first three volumes contain the original 432 plates, but the text rewritten by Hooker. The final two volumes are entirely new, with the plates mostly from drawings by Hooker, together with his own descriptions. The impressive 'Flora Londinensis' is much more comprehensive in scope than its title suggests, for it embraces most of the English flora, and as a result of which it should be properly regarded as the first colour-plate national flora. "Curtis adopted the novel plan of having specimens drawn to a uniform scale and to life size, and most of the plates display a high degree of accuracy. In the opinion of Salisbury, the majority of the figures 'represent the most successful portrayals of British wild flowers that have ever been achieved'" (Henry II, p. 67). The fine plates are by James Sowerby, Sydenham Edwards, and Hooker. William Curtis is one of the great names in botany, the present work and his famous 'Botanical Magazine' are landmarks in English botany. Restored marginal tear to title page of 5th volume and blind library stamp on title pages. A fine copy without the usual foxing.//Nissen BBI, 440; Stafleu & Cowan 1286.
