        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." Großheim, E.C.: J.N. Rust's Nekrolog, Med. Ztg., 9/51-53b (1840): pp.249-250 253-256 259-262Rust ("Arthrokakologie." Wien, 1817) made a wide distinction between tumor albus proper and scrofulous inflammation of joints.Waller 8331 Lesky 563 Goldschmid 106.

        Grant of arms donated by Isaac Heard, Garter, principal King of Arms and George Harrison, Clarenceux, King of Arms of the south east and west parts of England, to the reverend William Hopton (?-1841), heretofore known as William Parsons of Stretton Gransome in the county of Hereford, now city of Hereford clerk in order to grant him the arms belonging to the name of Hopton he took earlier in the year by Royal decree.

      British Empire, d.d. 1 August 1817. Vellum charter, good condition. 60x45 cm. Manuscript text and calligraphy, with 4 coloured coats of arms (three of the King and the officials and one of Hopton). Original 'signatures' (written names) and attached wax seals of both officials in decorated wooden (spane) casings. Encased in a made to fit oblong wooden case, with metal closing mechanism and clothed with red linen, decorated in gold with GR initials and crowns. This comes with an original letter from George W. Marshall, Rouge Croix, from the College of Arms dated 1900 and the Royal licence (signed by Queen Victoria) adressed to Lieutenant-Colonel Hopton for a change of name and arms from John Dutton Hunt to Hopton. This charter explains that William Hopton, heretofore William Parsons, only surviving son of John Parsons MP of Kemerton Court county Gloucester, deceased by Deborah his wife who was the daughter of Richard Hopton of Canon Frome in Hereford and the aunt of Richard Cope Hopton also deceased, took the name of Hopton by Royal decree of 21 March 1817 in order to inherit the Canon Frome estate. It also relates to the impressive family history dating several centuries back. The Hoptons had lived at Canon Frome for several generations, the succession often being through the female line. The Canon Frome estate was one of the largest in the county and he was a typical ‘squarson'. William (Parsons) Hopton, married twice (first to Mary Graves and second to Anna Poole), and his eldest grandson by the second marriage, Edward married his cousin, Clare Ellen Trafford. A soldier who served in the Crimea, Indian Mutiny, and the Kaffir and Zulu Wars, Edward became a General and was knighted in 1900. He, and his son Edward after him, were Trustees of the Michaelchurch Estate, and Eliza Rawson bought them a house (at Cagebrook in the parish of Eaton Bishop?). It seems that Canon Frome Court is now inhabitated by a rural living community of adults and children. Kemerton Court (apparently the ancestral home of the Parsons family) still exists and in the village of Kemerton there is a two storey tower still known as Parsons folly. Unusual is the grant of a crest out of a Ducal Coronet under the peculiar circumstances and the antiquity of the family but may not be made a precedent. H96

        Eassai sur la Torsion des Pieds (Pied Bots), et sur le meilleur moyen de les guérir.

      Se trouve chez l'auteuer,Rue Copeau, No.15. A Paris, de l'Imprimerie de A. Bobée, 1817, kl.8, 43, (1) pp., 1 gefalt. Taf., feiner Halbledereinband. Extrem Selten - Erste Ausgabe - Einführung des 'sabot de Venel' in Frankreich!"VENEL selber hat selbst nicht über seine Schiene veröffentlicht, unsere Kenntnisse stammen vielmehr aus 2. und 3. Hand."Er stand im Begriff, sein Verfahren der Welt durch den Druck bekannt zu machen, und hatte bereits die Übersicht eines Werkes drucken lassenb, das den Titel führen sollte 'Noveaux moyens de prévenir et de corriger dans l'enfance les déjettemens, courbures et difformités des pieds, des jambes et des genoux, même de ceux de naissanc', aber die abnahme seier Kräfte hinderte ihn an der Herausgabe desselben, und so blieben leider (!), die Erwartungen des Publikums unerfüllt." Brückner, p.15VENEL starb im Alter von 51 Jahren an Lungentuberkulose. Wir kennen die von ihm erzielten ausgezeichneten Resultate durch einen aus dem Jahre 1789 (?) stammenden Prospekt. Hier schreibt VENEL, daß er viel Gebrauch mache von warmen Bädern, ebenso von redressierenden Manipulationen. Mit anderen Worten: die Anlegung des Apparates war nur ein Teil der Behandlung. Immer wieder betont er, daß alle von ihm angewendeten Mittel in keiner Weise das Allgemeinbefinden der Kinder stören man dürfe nur ganz langsam Vorgehen, um mit geringer Kraft, beinahe unmerklich, die Fehlstellung zu korrigieren. Daher erfordere die Behandlung viel Zeit und Geduld das Kind bleibe am besten während der ganzen Behandlungsperiode in der Anstalt interniert.Die Kenntnis des sabot de Venel wurde zuerst in Deutschland verbreitet, und zwar durch den schon genannten JOHANN MATHIAS WANTZEL 'Beiträge zur Kenntnis und Cur der Klumpfüße. Mag. Wundarzneywissensch.), welcher in seiner Jugend wegen doppelseitiger schwerer kongenitaler Klumpfüße in Orbe durch VENEL mit sehr gutem Erfolge behandelt worden war. Aber ebenso wie VENEL starb auch er, bevor er die geplante vollständige Beschreibung der Venelschen Maschine veröffentlichen konnte für diese Arbeit lagen schon die Kupferplatten fertig gestochen vor, wie uns JÖRG berichtet, welchem sie nach dem Tode WANTZELS übergeben worden waren. Die erste Publikation über den von VENEL gebrauchten Apparat verdanken wir BRÜCKNER "Über einwärts gedrehte Füße und deren Behandlung, der eine ganze Reihe von Klumpfüßen nach dieser Methode behandelte, auch selber ein Verfahren für Klumpfüße deiner Kinder empfahl, die "Fußbinde", "Fascia Brueckneri". In seinem noch heute lesenswerten Buch berichtete er 1796 über seine Erfahrungen, starb aber kurz nach Erscheinen desselben - noch nicht 28 Jahre alt - an Lungenschwindsucht.In Frankreich wurde die Idee und Methode VENELS erst viele Jahre später durch zwei Schüler von JACCARD (1768-1820), dem Nachfolger VENELS in Orbe, nämlich LOUIS D'IVERNOIS (1817) und FRANCOIS LOUIS ÈDOUARD MELLET ((123) bekannt gemacht. Schon diese beiden und erst recht spätere Orthopäden haben den ursprünglichen "sabot de Venel" vielfach verbessert, aber das Grundprinzip beibehalten, d.h. an der Außenseite des Unterschenkels angebrachte Schiene. Wie bis in die Jetztzeit hinein der Apparat von VENEL als brauchbar gechätzt und als manchen anderen überlegen angesehen wird, mögen zwei Beispiele erweisen. E. Duval schreibt 1890:"L'appareil de Venel marque une époque importante dans l'histoire thérapeutique du pied bot, et peut rendre, aujourd'hui encore, des services il a servi de base aux machines les plus utiles qui sont actuellement en usage, et qui, suivant toutes les probabilités, le seront indéfiniment, du moins les principales."Und PLACIDE NICOD (1876-1953) berichtete 1908, daß in seinem Hospital in Lausanne der sabot de Venel in Gebrauch sei sein Sohn und Nachfolger Louis NICOD, welcher heute das schöne Hospice Orthopédique de la Suisse Romande leitet, zeigte mir bei einem Besuch im Jahre 1955 das dort gebräuchliche Modell für einen Klumpfußapparat. Dieses Modell ist nach dem sabot de Venel als Vorbild gearbeitet, hat sich gut bewährt, ist billig und kann beliebig verstellt werden, so daß man nicht nötig hat, für jeden einzelnen Fall einen besonderen Apparat anzufertigen es wird in verschiedenen Größen vorrätig gehalten." Bruno Valentin, Geschichte der Orthopädie (1961), pp.86-89"LOUIS D'IVERNOIS (1789-1844), der Neffe VENELS und Schüler von PIERRE-FREDERIC JACCARD (1768 bis 1820), dem Nachfolger VENELS in der Leitung des Orthopädischen Institutes in Orbe, behandelte als erster 1813 in Paris Patienten mit Klumpfüßen nach der Methode von VENEL und gab in einem 1817 erschienenen Buch "Essai sur la torsion es pieds" seine Erfahrungen mit dem sabot de Venel bekannt. Ferner gründete er in der Rue Copeau No. 15 ein "Etablissement d'Orthomorphique". Einige Jahre später holte er sich ISIDORE BRICHETEAU (1787-1862) als Mitarbeiter heran, gemeinsam veröffentlichten sie mehrere gute Arbeiten. 1830 zog sich d'IVERNOIS in seine Geburtsstadt Orbe zurück er starb im April 1844 zu Verona." Bruno Valentin, Geschichte der Orthopädie (1961), p.199Extreme Rare - Jean-André Venel - "His nephew, Louis d'Ivernois (1789-1844) came to work to Paris arouind 1813 and was the first there to use Venel' shoe - the sabot de Venel - for club -foot."

Carl Ferdinan's Graefe's preliminary communication of the first two cases of rhinoplasty !Selten - Erste Ausgabe!Ferner finden wir unter den Angezeigten Schriften "J.C. Carpue an account of two sucesseful operations for restoring a lost nose from the integuments of the fore - head, etc." (2.Bd., p.20) angezeigt.Zeis 527 : "Unter der Ueberschrift : "Eingesendet" befindet sich hier eine vorläufige Mittheilung über die beiden ersten von Graefe ausgeführten (später in seiner Rhinoplastik p.59 u. 105 ausführlich beschriebenen) Fälle von Rhinoplastik, nebst historischen Bemerkungen."Zeis Index: "Under the title "Eingsendet" [Correspondence], is a preliminary communication of the first two cases of rhinoplasty carried out by Graefe (later described in details in his Rhinoplastik, pp.59 and 105) with historical remarks.""Michael Schubring, 28 Jahre Alt , zuletzt Schmiedegesell , der in den feldzügen von 1812-13 seine Naser durch einen Seitenhieb verloren hatte, wurde ... am 19. 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 ChristinaMüller, 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 attached to the head. However, the pretentiousness of naming this the "German" method antagonized other surgeons, particularly the French, and it was also felt that the norms and apparatus which he devised were unnecessarily complicated. But Von Graefe's Rhinoplastik stands as the first great treatise on plastic surgery after Tagliacozzi and Carpue, and his pioneer work in introducing the Indian method and reviving the Taliacotian method of rhinoplasty in Germany stimulated the development of plastic surgery throughout Europe and in the United States." M.T. Gnudi & J.P. Webster, The Life and Times of Gaspaere Tagliacozzi (1950), pp.320-321*) "Carl Ferdinand von Graefe (1787-1840), born at Warsaw and educated in Poland, Dresden, Halle and Leipzig, became Professor of Surgery at the University of Berlin and director of the Surgical Institute. His long career in these posts was interrupted by his participation as one of the surgeons- general of the Prussian Army in the war of 1813-1815. Von Graefe was not only a pioneer of plastic surgery in Germany but was also one of the best operators in Europe. The first surgeon in Germany to ligate the innominate artery, he also improved the technic of Caesarean section, invented an operation for congenital cleft-palate, introduced blepharoplasty into Germany (simultaneously with Dzondi), and was an enlightened and zealous teacher of surgery and surgical principles. In addition to his publications on plastic surgery, his most important writings were the work on amputations (Normen für die Ablösung grösserer Gliedmassen nach Erfahrungs-grundsätzen entworfen, Berlin, 1812), a monograph on Egyptian ophthalmia (Die epidemisch-contagiöse Augenblennorrhöe Aegyptens in den europäischen Befreiungsheeren, Berlin, 1823), and his original papers published in the Journal für Chirurgie und Augenheilkunde. (See The Lancet, 1833-1834, vol. 1, pp. 969-974, and Hirsch, Biographisches Lexicon.)See Zeis, pp. 216-220, for a discussion of Von Graefe's work.

        Grant of arms donated by Isaac Heard, Garter, principal King of Arms and George Harrison, Clarenceux, King of Arms of the south east and west parts of England, to the reverend William Hopton (?-1841), heretofore known as William Parsons of Stretton Gransome in the county of Hereford, now city of Hereford clerk in order to grant him the arms belonging to the name of Hopton he took earlier in the year by Royal decree.

      - British Empire, d.d. 1 August 1817. Vellum charter, good condition. 60x45 cm. Manuscript text and calligraphy, with 4 coloured coats of arms (three of the King and the officials and one of Hopton). Original 'signatures' (written names) and attached wax seals of both officials in decorated wooden (spane) casings. Encased in a made to fit oblong wooden case, with metal closing mechanism and clothed with red linen, decorated in gold with GR initials and crowns. This comes with an original letter from George W. Marshall, Rouge Croix, from the College of Arms dated 1900 and the Royal licence (signed by Queen Victoria) adressed to Lieutenant-Colonel Hopton for a change of name and arms from John Dutton Hunt to Hopton. This charter explains that William Hopton, heretofore William Parsons, only surviving son of John Parsons MP of Kemerton Court county Gloucester, deceased by Deborah his wife who was the daughter of Richard Hopton of Canon Frome in Hereford and the aunt of Richard Cope Hopton also deceased, took the name of Hopton by Royal decree of 21 March 1817 in order to inherit the Canon Frome estate. It also relates to the impressive family history dating several centuries back. The Hoptons had lived at Canon Frome for several generations, the succession often being through the female line. The Canon Frome estate was one of the largest in the county and he was a typical ‘squarson'. William (Parsons) Hopton, married twice (first to Mary Graves and second to Anna Poole), and his eldest grandson by the second marriage, Edward married his cousin, Clare Ellen Trafford. A soldier who served in the Crimea, Indian Mutiny, and the Kaffir and Zulu Wars, Edward became a General and was knighted in 1900. He, and his son Edward after him, were Trustees of the Michaelchurch Estate, and Eliza Rawson bought them a house (at Cagebrook in the parish of Eaton Bishop?). It seems that Canon Frome Court is now inhabitated by a rural living community of adults and children. Kemerton Court (apparently the ancestral home of the Parsons family) still exists and in the village of Kemerton there is a two storey tower still known as Parsons folly. Unusual is the grant of a crest out of a Ducal Coronet under the peculiar circumstances and the antiquity of the family but may not be made a precedent. H96

      Clark, Old South II, 227; Howes P-49; Sabin 58362. First and only edition of the Dutch translation of a journal of a journey through North-America and the lower part of Canada by John Palmer, illustrated with an engraved map of North America, hand-coloured in outline. The extensive introduction gives a short statistical survey of North America. On 28 March 1817 Palmer sails from Liverpool tot the United States, together with William Cobbett, visiting New York, Washington, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Tennessee, Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia, Indiana, Missouri, Quebec, and more. The journal is of special interest for the contemporary prices of land and provisions, the observations on the country and the people, and the descriptions of the trade and commerce of the principal towns. "Mr. Palmer travelled through ... the greater part of the country he describes; but he confesses that the outlines of his travels were filled up from other books. A plain man of good sense and slow judgment" (Sabin). With a note of the manager of the publishing house (heirs of François Bohn) on title-page, explicitly declaring (probably for a tax-acknowledgement) in the lower margin in brown ink that the book is printed in Bohn's own printing house at Bohn's own expense, signed: P.C. van Olpen, Haarlem, 25 October 1820. Some occasional foxing, otherwise in very good condition. Biinding rubbed along the extremities, but otherwise good.

        Preciso dos sucessos, que tiverão lugar em Pernambuco, desde a faustissima e gloriozissima Revolução operada felismente na Praça do Recife, aos seis do corrente Mez de Março .

      [Pernambuco, Officina Typographica da Segunda Restauração de Pernambuco], dated 10 March 1817. - Broadside, folio (23 x 31 cm.), unbound. Paper fold causes very slight printing defect. Minor stains, slight soiling. In very good condition. On papel selado with tax stamp of 10 reis upside-down at foot of verso. (1 l.) *** EARLIEST PERNAMBUCO PRINTING. During the 1817 revolt in Pernambuco, this broadside was printed to inform the public of events from March 5th to March 10th. It attributes the revolt to the proscriptions of March 5th and relates the overthrow of the royal government and the establishment of a provisional government. Authorship has been attributed to either José Luis de Mendonça or Antonio Carlos Ribeiro de Andrada. Holmes notes, "This paper, today, is a true and most valuable relic of the first organized attempt to proclaim the independence of Brazil. It was drafted by an able lawyer, who paid for it with his life."Ricardo Fernandes Castanho, a Recife businessman, was granted a license to print in Pernambuco in 1816, soon after Silva Serva began printing in Bahia. He imported a press from England but failed to purchase adequate type, and the press had not yet been used when the 1817 revolt broke out. Then a Frenchman living in Recife, L.F. Tollenare, pointed out the benefits of using the press to instruct the public on the purposes of the revolt, and types were manufactured by an Englishman, James Pinches. The press apparently had no paper, for its first broadside was printed on papel selado (with the stamp at the foot rather than the head). A number of other broadsides were issued by the "Officina Typographica da Segunda Restauração de Pernambuco," but as soon as the revolt was suppressed, the license to print was revoked and the press put into storage.The 1817 revolt, a precursor of Brazilian independence, broke out in Pernambuco and spread to Alagoas, Paraíba and Rio Grande do Norte. The law of the republic included religious toleration and equal rights, but defended slavery. The rebels were forced to surrender in May 1817, after the Portuguese government gathered loyal troops from Bahia and Rio de Janeiro.*** Borba de Moraes, Livros e bibliotecas no Brasil colonial pp. 162-4.

        Anleitung zur zweckmäßigsten Einrichtung der Apparate zur Beleuchtung mit Steinkohlen-Gas.

      Vienna, Carl Gerold, 1817. - Large 8vo. XIV, 138 pp. With 2 folding lithogr. plates. Contemp. marbled boards with giltstamped label to spine. First edition of the first German monograph on gas lighting; preceded only by Lampadius's translation of Accum's "Practical Treatise on Gaslight". J. J. Prechtl (1778-1854) initiated the foundation of the Vienna Polytechnical Institute in 1815, the first educational institute of its kind in the German-speaking countries, and served as its first director. The institute became a decisive force in the industrialization of Austria. In the autumn of 1815, Prechtl and the engineering professor Johann Arzberger developed a lighting apparatus based on coal gas, thus becoming a pioneer of continental gas lighting.

        Sibylline Leaves

      First Edition. 8vo. pp. x, [ii], 303, [i]. Errata on p. [xi-xii]. S. Curtis, Printer, Camberwell on verso of title-leaf. Printed by John Evans and Co., St John-Street, Bristol on foot of final page. Nineteenth-century full yellow morocco, raised bands, marbled boards, spine decorated and lettered in gilt, gilt ruled inside dentelles, top edge gilt, marbled endpapers. Pages uncut. Bound by J.B.Hawes, Cambridge. Sibylline Leaves is a collection of Samuel Taylor Coleridge's poems (later published as Sybylline Leaves). As he writes in the Preface, it contains almost all his 'poetical compositions, from 1793 to the present date'. It also contains eight previously unpublished poems. Among the poems that had appeared previously was The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, published here under Coleridge's name for the first time. The Rime of the Ancient Mariner is the only poem on which Coleridge continued to work until shortly before his death. For the 1800 edition of the Lyrical Ballads, a selection of works by Coleridge and William Wordsworth, he removed several stanzas and some of the more obvious archaic expressions - turning 'ancyent marinere', for example, into 'ancient mariner'. For Sibylline Leaves, he further modernised some of the language and added the marginal prose gloss that has ever since been an integral part of the poem.

        The American Crisis.

      W.T. Sherwin,, London: 1817 - Pamphlet, 8vo, bound in modern semi stiff boards with cloth spine, 196 pp. Slight edgewear, toning and light foxing to the interior, normal aging; otherwise very good. This is a relatively scarce collection of Paine's pamphlets originally published between 1776-1783.The first essay actually appeared in the Pennsylvania Journal, and he used the pseudonym "Common Sense." There appear to be 14 numbered pamphlets, and a couple of unnumbered essays. While this collection appears complete, the numbers may not correspond to the original series. The classic Paine line "These are the times that try men's souls" is shown at the beginning of essay number two. Paine supported the American cause, and felt Britain did not have the right to invade the colonies. He believed in independence from Britain, and Washington even used Paine's words to boost morale among his troops. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Manuscrit venu de St. Hà là ne d'une manià re inconnue.

      - London, [Jean M'Creery, Black Horse Court] for John Murray, 1817. 8vo. Uncut in the original publisher's paper-backed boards; pp. [iv], 151, [4, advertisements, dated March, 1817]; rebacked with new printed vertical label; preliminaries with light spotting, otherwise fine and with wide margins; provenance: early engraved armorial bookplate Edward Davenport inside front cover, 20th-century bookplate Cornelius Ver Heyden De Lancey on opposite fly-leaf. Very early printing of a successful, anonymously published pastiche of a memoir dictated by the captured ex-Emperor, clearly trying to show Napoleon in a liberal light, as the one who wanted to give the Revolution a legal and democratic foundation. It is now commonly accepted that the author was the Swiss agronom Lullin de Châteauvieux, a member of Mme. de Staël's salon; however, it might as well be a collective work inspired by the great salonnià re. The book attempts to sanctify Napoleon as a liberal hero and therefore focuses on his early, revolutionary career. When he got hold of this text, surprisingly early, in September of 1817, he read, discussed and annotated it. He suspected Mme de Staël, or her friend Benjamin de Constant to be among the possible authors. Even the 18th-century radicals Roederer or Sieyà s were considered. Napoleon summed up his views in the words 'C'est un ouvrage qui marquera et qui fera à poque', annotating his copy in 42 places and expressing disapproval of the text in his will. The work was printed and pirated many times all over Europe and in Canada, illegal in France; however, widely circulated, frequently in manuscript form. Provenance: The Baron Doctor Cornelius Ver Heyden De Lancey (1889-1984) was a multilingual dental surgeon, doctor and lawyer of Dutch origin. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THE BIBLIOGRAPHICAL DECAMERON; or, Ten Days' Pleasant Discourse upon Illuminated Manuscripts, and subjects connected with Engravings, Typography, and Bibliography.,

      London: Shakespeare Press, 1817. Three volumes. - 6 1/4 x 10. vi, ccxxv, 410; 535; 544 pages + 37 plates. Copiously illustrated with wood and copper engravings, some printed on India paper and mounted. Rich brown morocco by The Monastery Hill Bindery, a single gilt rule on covers; spine in 6 compartments with gilt rules; the raised bands extend onto the covers and taper to blindstamped fleurons; top edges gilt; wide turn-ins gilt, brown batik endpapers. Very slight wear. Bookplate of Julia Parker Wightman. A fine set. Handsome, lavish volumes printed by William Bulmer. His Shakespeare Press, in conjunction with the types of William Martin (a Baskerville disciple), is still renowned. In A History of the Old English Letter Founderies, Reed writes " A history of this celebrated Press would almost involve a history of fine printing in the first quarter of the present century. Dibdin, in the second volume of his Bibliographical Decameron has given a list of its most famous impressions. Bulmer was a personal friend of Thomas Bewick, the engraver, many of whose blocks were cut for his books. He spared no pains to render the typography of his press the most correct and beautiful England had hitherto known." Reed goes on to say The Decameron is one Bulmer's finest specimens.
