        Das Marienbad bey Auschowitz auf der Herrschaft Tepl, physikalisch-chemisch und medizinisch geprüft und dargestellt

      Fine engraved frontis., two engraved plates, & four folding printed tables. 342 pp. 8vo, cont. fine dark blue sheep maroquiné (extremities a trifle rubbed), sides with gilt filet, flat spine richly gilt, red morocco lettering piece on spine, a.e.g. Prague: G. Haase, 1818. First edition; a very fine and handsome copy printed on thick paper and bound in contemporary dark blue sheep maroquiné, gilt. Reuss (1761-1830), took his medical degree in 1783 and established a practice at Prague; during the same period he also conducted mineralogical and geological investigations and went to Freiberg to hear Werner lecture at the Bergakademie. He wrote an important geological textbook which contained the most complete exposition of Werner's ideas. "In 1784 Reuss became physician to Prince Lobkowitz and moved to the northwestern Bohemian city of Bilin…Bilin was already famous as a spa, and Reuss, in addition to his medical duties, supervised the exploitation of the mineral springs and mines belonging to his patron. In this connection he continued his mineralogical and geological researches and concurrently began an investigation of the spas of northern Bohemia."-D.S.B., XI, p. 387. Reuss provides here a very full description of the mineral springs and a chemical analysis of the waters at Marienbad (now Mariánské Lázne) in today's Czech Republic. These waters are rich in sulphate of soda and carbonate of soda. The attractive frontispiece depicts the town (which consists mostly of hotels) and the other two plates show the Kreuzbrunne and Karolinenquelle. Two old library stamps of Prague religious houses on title.

A most important association; formerly the property of Admiral Gordon (1782-1869), a key sailor of his era and a five-star naval officer appointed Admiral of the Fleet, the highest rank of the British Royal Navy. During an illustrious career at the time of Britain's maritime dominance, he served under Lord Nelson and was directly involved in several major campaigns including the French Revolutionary Wars, The Anglo-Spanish War, The War of 1812, and The Napoleonic Wars. He is cited as the inspiration for C.S. Forester's heroic character Horatio Hornblower and in 1997 historian Bryan Perret chronicled his life and times under the title 'The Real Hornblower' (Pen and Sword Publishing). Gordon fought, commanded and was victorious in numerous major battles and actions including The Battle of the Glorious First of June (1794), Battle of Cape St Vincent (1797), The Blockade of Cadiz (1808), The Battle of Lissa (1811), The Blockade of France (1812), The Raid of Alexandra/Potomac River (1814), The Battle of Baltimore (1814), The Attack on Fort Henry (1814) and The Battle of New Orleans (1815). From 1811 onwards Gordon used a wooden leg as a result of a canonball hit during the Battle of Palagruza, and after the cessation of hostilities he held a number of superior posts including Superintendent of the Naval Hospital at Plymouth, Superintendent of Chatham Dockyard and Governor of Greenwich Hospital. Marking his exceptional and distinguished record, he was appointed Admiral of the Fleet in 1868 and is buried at Greenwich close to the entrance of the National Maritime Museum. An obituary published 3rd June 1869 hailed him as "The Last of Nelson's Captains".

        Engelska tjuf- och mord-historier.

      Jönköping, direktören Lundströms tryckeri, af S. J. Westberg, 1818. 8:o. (8),234 s. Trevligt mönstrat pappbd från början av 1900-talet med röd titeletikett. Ryggen lätt mörknad och med lite småsprickor överst och nederst vid ytterfalsarna. Spår av borttaget exlibris på främre pärmens insida. Oskuren inlaga. De första och sista sidorna lagerfläckiga, däremellan spridda lager-, fukt- och småfläckar. Gultonad fuktfläck på s. 65-75. Lång tråkigt lagad reva i registerbladet s. (7-8), vilken gör texten svårläst, och en reva i bladet s. 87-88 samt några smärre marginalrevor. Bra ex. En översättning av "Englische Diebs- und Mordgeschichte" del I och II som utgavs i Köpenhamn på J. G. Rothens förlag 1773-74. Innehåller en mängd kortare historier om stråtrövare och mördare. Enligt förordet är historierna i synnerhet hämtade från fångpredikanten i Newgate och domstolsprotokollen i Old Bailey. "Man wågar äfwen smickra sig, att de som icke hafwa något annat oskyldigt aftontidsfördrif, skola sätta ett högre wärde på denna samling, än på de hoprörda sanningslösa romaner, som det franska snillet framalstrar och den tyska enfaldigheten köper" säger den anonyma kompilatören i förordet. Bland de många biografierna kan nämnas: "Benjamin Wilson, en stråtröfware", "John Larkin, en falsk myntare", "Mary King, en otacksam mörderska", "John Simpson, en ertz-tjuf", "John Kidd, en sjöröfware", "Mary Adams, en tjufkona", "Christopher Slaughterford, en föregifwen mördare", "William Gregg, en landsförrädare", "Richard Thornbill, en duellist", "Elisabeth Mason, en trettonårig mörderska" och "James Booky, en femtonårig jungfruskändare".

        Manuscript - Court Martial Document - Trial and Sentencing of Private Thomas Smith for Deserting His Regiment - Escaping Imprisonment - Sent to Australia Penal Colony

      Trinidad, 1818. Port of Spain, Trinidad, 3-8 September 1818. Manuscript Court Martial proceedings which took place at the Orange Grove Barracks, for the trial and sentencing of Private Thomas Smith for deserting his regiment, and, after being apprehended, escaping imprisonment. Folio. 7 pages of text on two double leafs, laid watermarked paper made by Molineux Johnston in 1813, measuring approximately 32 x 20 cm. Signed in the original by three significant parties involved in the trial, including Governor of Barbados, Lord Combermere. Some splitting at folds, otherwise in very good condition, a rare and fascinating primary source account of an Australian penal colony convict. Private Thomas Smith, alias John Jackson (1791-1866), was a convict assigned to Captain Thomas H. Baylis's Company of the Royal York Rangers in 1816. [The Royal York Rangers was formed in 1807 from condemned men, mostly British and Irish prisoners desperate to escape hanging, and also with drafts from the Royal African Corps. Despite this eclectic grouping, it was an extremely effective regiment.] At the risk of receiving lashes and extended sentencing, Smith dared to abandon his imposed commitment of penance and army duty, and fleed the regiment. According to this court document, dated 3 September 1818, he was captured near Arima, Trinidad, in July, having been quartered at Saint Joseph with the regiment, until his desertion. He was tried in Trinidad. The hearing addressed three charges against him, first for desertion from the regiment, also for the crime of leaving with 'Regimental Necessaries', and, after being apprehended, for subsequently escaping from prison captivity. He was found 'Guilty' on all three counts and sentenced as "Felon for Life" to be transported to an un unnamed location. The jury consisted of 14 men of various military regiments. The document further reveals that he had joined the regiment in England in on 14 December 1816. As mentioned in the introduction to the proceeding, the warrant for Smith's arrest and conviction, was issued by the Governor of Barbados himself Stapleton Cotton, 1st Viscount Combermere GCB GCH KSI PC (1773-1865), who held the post from 1817 to 1820. Governor Combermere also signed the document in his hand. The present document appears to be the earliest record of this felon. Following this hearing and conviction, he must have been successfully held until he was transported to a penal colony in Australia one year later. Docketing inscriptions to verso of the second leaf indicate that these papers were sent to the Commander In Chief on 27 January 1819. [According to historical naval records and colonial secretary's correspondence, Smith would arrive at Sydney, then a penal colony, on the ship 'Malabar' along with 169 other exiles on 30 October 1819 and from there was sent to Emu Plains. Commanded by Captain William Ascough, the ship safely delivered 170 male prisoners, 32 soldiers including the guard, 9 women and 6 children. The prisoners were landed in good health and with their rations on 5 November. They were immediately distributed to Parramatta, Windsor, Liverpool and Emu Plains. In the years to follow, Smith was charged with theft and disorderly conduct, worked as part of an iron gang from which he also escaped on several occasions, was sent to Port Macquarie to work for the government, then to Norfolk Island, was transferred to Cockatoo Island, and died in 1857 at age 66 after living an active life as a felon and convict.] Smith must have embarked on the Malabar in Trinidad, as he was already stationed on the island as early as July 1818 after deserting his convict regiment. Though detailed information is limited, and ship registers are scant, Smith evidently left England sometime between 14 December 1816 when he joined the Royal York Rangers and early 1818 when he was posted in Trinidad. Three notable individuals involved in this case have signed the last page of this document in the original: The Governor of Barbados from 1817 to 1820, Stapleton Cotton, 1st Viscount Combermere GCB GCH KSI PC (1773-1865), a British diplomat, politician, and Army officer who commanded a cavalry brigade in Sir Arthur Wellesley's Army before being given overall command of the cavalry in the latter stages of the Peninsular War. Lieutenant Colonel William Smelt, from the 103d Foot, who was the President for this trial. [Possible descendant of Leonard Smelt of Kirkby Fleetham, Yorkshire, who was the Receiver General of casual revenue, Barbados, from 1745 until his death in 1755.] Lieutenant and Adjutant William Firebrace, whose role was Deputy Judge Advocate in this trial. [He obtained the rank of Major in 1836, retired in 1841, and died on the Isle of Wight in 1856] Following are som excerpts from the document: "Proceedings of a General Court Martial held by Virtue of a Warrant bearing date Head Quarters Barbados 30th July 1818, from his Excellency the Right Honorable Lord Combermere G.C.B. [Governor General Barbados], Commander of His Majesty's Forces in the Windward and Leeward Islands - " "Trinidad, Orange Grove Barracks, 3rd September 1818." "Prisoner Private Thomas Smith alias John Jackson... was called into Court... was then asked if he had any objection to the President or any Members... he had not... the charges preferred against him as follows..." "For deserting from his Regiment on or about the 12th July last, and not returning until apprehended and brought back a Prisoner by a Party of Indians or Spaniards on or about the 14th July following." "For having when he Deserted taken with him all his Regimental Necessaries." "For making his Escape when a Prisoner, and again Deserting on or about the 15th July following, and not returning until apprehended by a Party of the Regiment on or about the 28th August following." "To which the Prisoner pleaded Not Guilty..." "The Court... proceeded to examine the Evidences...." "... on the Morning of 12th July [1818], two of the Prisoner's Messmates informed him [Captain Thomas Bayliss] that the Prisoner had deserted..." "Manuel Pena an Indian resident in the Island being solemnly sworn thro' an Interpreter... answers the following questions... Where did you apprehend him? In the Cocoa Market of Mr. Strickland's Plantation near Arima" How far is this from Port of Spain? About six hours walk. "Serjeant Andrew Honan... deposes as follows... Do you know if he had any Necessaries? I know he had, as I have seen them Inspected." "George Lemon a Discharged Soldier from the Royal York Rangers being called into court... Was the Prisoner under your charge as a Prisoner? He was.... At 1/2 past 7 Oclock in the evening I locked up the Prisoner as well as the rest... but at 5 Oclock next morning when I went to the place where the Prisoners were confined, I found that the Prisoner had effected his escape by digging under the door of his cell and had by that means got out." "Private Michael Dunn... Were you on the Gaol Guard on the 15th July last? I was." "Private Anthony Jones... Were you one of a Party who apprehended the Prisoner on or about the 28th August last? I was... I found him in a Liquor store in the Town..." "Serjeant William Godman... Did you ever see the Prisoner previous to this... from England with the last Draft of Recruits? I did... He [Thomas Smith] joined the Regiment with me on 14th December 1816..." "The Prisoner declines making any defences and throws himself on the mercy of the Court." "The Court having thus found the Prisoner Guilty of the whole of the Charges exhibited against him... Prisoner Private Thomas Smith alias John Jackson... Royal York Rangers, to be Transported as a Felon for Life" Signed "Wm Smelt, Lt. Colonel R. York Rangers, President" Signed "Approved. Combermere SC., Commr. of the Forces." Signed "Will. Firebrace,... 8 September 1818" End Excerpts. . Very Good.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("B. Crusell"). Stockholm, 28. IV. 1818.

      1818. 2 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An die Musikhandlung C. F. Peters in Leipzig, der er den Erhalt seines Honorars "für mein letztes Concert" meldet: "[...] Ihre Bemerkungen über die Composition meines letzten Concerts sind sehr richtig [...] Es ist gantz wahr daß dieses Concert nicht so lieblich tönt wie das erste; dies kann aber auch nicht der Fall sein, denn ich habe es in einem pathetischen Stil geschrieben, und den mechanischen Theil desselben weit schwerer gesetzt. Dies geschah, um die Kenner zu befriedigen, und zugleich dem Virtuosen etwas Künstliches zu liefern, worauf sie doch Werth zu setzen scheinen, und besonders weil man in der Recension meines ersten Concerts es zu leicht gefunden hatte. Mein künftiges Concert (das ich Ihnen bei Gelegenheit schicken werde) soll aber, wie ich hoffe, den Ohren mehrerer Zuhörer, so wie jenes erste schmeicheln, und dem Virtuosen doch auch zu gläntzen Gelegenheit geben [...]". - Das Adreßblatt mit einigen Ausrissen.

        Handbuch der Entbindungskunst, 2 Bände.

      Tübingen, Christian Friedrich Osiander, 1818 - 1821. XII, 802, XVI, 264, VIII, 495, 15 S. (Neue) Blau marmorierte Hardcoverbände (Handeinbände) mit dreiseitigem Rotschnitt. Jeder Band mit jeweils zwei Abteilungen, bei Bd. 1 Paginierung durchlaufend, bei Bd. 2 nach Abteilungen getrennt. Bd. 2 mit vier mehrfach gefalteten Kupfern im Anhang. Friedrich Benjamin Osiander (1759 - 1822) studierte an der Universität Tübingen. Nach einer kurzen Zeit als praktizierender Arzt hospitierte Osiander 1781 ein Jahr lang an der Entbindungsanstalt in Kassel und faßte seine Erfahrungen als praktischer Geburtshelfer 1787 in seiner Schrift \"Beobachtungen, Abhandlungen und Nachrichten, welche vorzüglich Krankheiten der Frauenzimmer und Kinder und die Entbindungswissenschft betreffen\" erstmals zusammen. 1792 wurde Osiander Professor der Gynäkologie und Geburtshilfe an der Universität Göttingen und hatte gleichzeitig die Leitung des Göttinger Klinikums und Entbindungshauses inne. Osianders \"Handbuch der Entbindungskunst\" kann als wissenschaftiches und praktisches Vermächtnis seiner jahrzehntelangen Tätigkeit als Gynäkologe und Geburtshelfer gelten. Osiander entwickelte mehrere neu Instrumente zur Geburtshilfe, die in den Faltkupfern des Handbuchs illustriert werden, und leistete Beiträge zur Weiterentwicklung von Operationstechniken bei Entbindungen. Die stilvollen Handeinbände in neuwertigem Zustand; auch innen sehr gute Exemplare; Seiten sauber und nahezu fleckenfrei.

        Zeitschrift für psychische Ärzte

      Leipzig Cnobloch, 1818-1822 (5 Bände). - sehr selten in dieser Vollständigkeit! Nasse gab sie in Verbindung mit den wichtigsten Psychiatern seiner Zeit heraus (zu Beginn Haindorf, Hayner, Heinroth, Hoffbauer, Henke, Hohnbaum, Horn, Maaß, Pienitz, Ruer und Weiß). Während sie in den ersten Jahren eher auf Beobachtung der klinischen Praxis ausgerichtet war, geriet sie später wohl unter dem Einfluß der Bonner Umgebung (Ennemoser veröffentlichte ab Band 3 mehrere Beiträge) in spekulative Bahnen. Der ab 1820 erstmals auftauchende Untertitel "mit besonderer Berücksichtigung des Magnetismus" bestimmte aber die Richtung der Zeitschrift insgesamt nicht (ANGST 40ff.), und danach fehlen Arbeiten über den Magnetismus ganz. Die Zeitschrift ist die erste im deutschsprachigen Raum, die allein von Ärzten herausgegeben wird. In ihr findet die Auseinandersetzung zwischen "Somatikern" (wie Nasse) und "Psychikern" (wie Heinroth) statt. In Band 3 ist u.a. die medizinische Dissertation von Friedrich Schiller enthalten ("Versuch über den Zusammenhang der thierischen Natur des Menschen mit seiner geistigen"), die hier zum ersten Mal nach ihrer Veröffentlichung im Jahre 1780 erschien und von Romberg mit einem einleitenden Kommentar vorgestellt wird. Die Tafeln in Bd. 1 zeigen die damals üblichen Apparaturen zur "Behandlung" von Kranken (Drehmaschinen, hohles Rad, Zwangsschrank Sprache: Deutsch Gewicht in Gramm: 6208 21 x 12,5cm, Bd. 1 und 4-5 zeitgenöss.

Trattati di Legislazione Civile e Penale: Preceduti da' Principi Generali di Legislazione, E da un Proggetto di un Corpo Completo di Dritto: Terminati da un Saggio Sulla Influenza de' Tempi e de' Luoghi Relativamente alle Leggi. Naples: Presso Angelo Trani, 1818. Three volumes. viii, 432, [2]; xii, 484; xi, 504 pp. Each volume has half-title. Complete set. Octavo (7-3/4" x 5"). Contemporary quarter morocco over marbled boards, gilt titles, fillets and volume numbers to spine. Light rubbing to boards, somewhat heavier rubbing to extremities, corners bumped, hinges of Volumes I and II cracked, text blocks of both somewhat loose. Light toning to text, faint dampstaining and light foxing to some leaves. Later owner stamp to front free endpaper of each volume, interiors otherwise clean. A handsome copy of a rare edition. * First Italian edition. This seminal work on penal reform and legislation established Bentham's reputation. The first of his works edited by Dumont, it consists partly of papers by Bentham, some originally written in French, and partly of a digest by Dumont of Bentham's ideas, including an essay on the Panopticon. Dumont, a Swiss writer and journalist, met Bentham at the house of Lord Shelburne in 1788. This meeting resulted in an enduring relationship. Devoted to Bentham's ideas, Dumont translated and edited many of his works and served as his informal literary agent. The first edition of The Theory of Legislation was published in Paris in 1802 as Traites de Legislation Civile et Penale. Our Italian edition came next, followed by an edition in Spanish in 1821-1822 and one in German, with an abridged text, in 1830. The first edition in English was published in Boston in 1840. The first British edition followed in 1864. Harrison, Bentham xvii. OCLC locates 2 copies of the first Italian edition in North America (at George Washington Law School and Yale).

Not bound, as issued.= A magnificent publication with fine large plates of mammals from all over the world. The authors, Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire (1772-1844) and Fréderic Cuvier (1769-1832) were the leading authorities in Mammalogy in the first half of the 19th century, and the "Histoire naturelle des mammifères" is widely regarded as their magnum opus. From this work, these are the bears (Ursidae). Included are the following species: l'ours polaire (U. maritimus); ours noir d'Amérique (U. americanus); ours des cordillières (U. ornatus); le jongleur (U. labiatus or U. longirostris); the same "très vieux (very old)"; ours des Asturies (U. arctos from Spain); ours brun des alpes et de Norwège (U. arctos (adult brown bear from the Alps, and a three months old young from Norway); ours de malais (U. malayanus); and ours de Thibet (U. thibetanus).

Mathématicien, brillant ingénieur et architecte naval, Dupin, à sa sortie de Polytechnique et après la rupture de la paix d'Amiens, se rendit sur le terrain et en mission pour les flotilles de la Manche. C'est lui qui est à l'origine du Musée de la Marine de Toulon, en 1813 dont il annonce dans la préface du présent ouvrage : "la partie du Musée maritime la moins brillante, mais la plus utile et la plus réellement intéressante, c'est la collection des machines, des outils et des produits des arts d'un grand arsenal." C'est dans cette optique qu'il conçoit le présent ouvrage, comme une présentation des avancées des Britanniques dans leurs travaux publics.
