        Organon der Heilkunst. (2)

      Zweite Auflage. - Dresden, in der Arnoldschen Buchhandlung, 1819, 8, 374, (2) pp., Halbledereinband der Zeit. Zweite Auflage, sehr seltene erste Abdruck!*)"Bei der zweiten Auflage 1819 ging dann Hahnemann - rein äußerlich betrachtet - schon auf der Titelseite einen Schritt weiter er nannte sein Werk schlankweg "Organon der Heilkunst". Damit wollte er zum Ausdruck bringen, daß er keine andere Heilkunde anerkenne, als die seinige, und daß nur sie die einzige und wahre Kunst sei.""Auch das Motto änderst er. De ersten Auflage hatte er das Gellertsche Wort mit auf den Weg gegeben: "Die Wahrheit, die wir alle nötig haben, die uns als Menschen glücklich macht, ward von der weissen Hand, die sie uns zugedacht , nur leicht verdeckt, nicht tief vergraben.""Bei der zweiten Auflage aber setzte er die Worte "Aude sapere" - "wage, zu Wissen" oder wie Hahnemann es kurz und treffend einmal selbst verdeutsch hat: "Habe das Herz, Einsicht zu haben" - auf die Titelseite. Damit wollte er seine Fachgenossen aufrütteln und ihnen zurufen: "Fasset nur erst den herzhaften Entschluß, gewinnt's über euch und bebet nicht vor den Schwierigkeiten zurück." Richard Haehl. Organon, (6. Auflage), Einleitung*) Auf dem Titelblatt: "Nachricht für den Käufer: Der Haupttiel auf Velinpapier, mit dem Bildniß des Herrn Verfassers, wird zu Michaeli d. J. unentgeldlich nachgeliefert." Arnoldische Buchhandlung.Schmidt No. 4 (diese Variante unbekannt siehe Interimstitelabbildung p.45)

        A Voyage of discovery, made under the orders of the Admiralty, in His Majesty's Ships Isabella and Alexander, for the purpose of exploring Baffin's Bay and inquiring into the probability of a North-West Passage.

      John Murray London 1819 - First edition. 4to., xl, 252, cxliv pp., 7 maps and charts (6 folding), and 25 aquatint or engraved plates and coastal profiles (15 coloured and 7 folding), period calf-backed marbled boards, raised bands, gilt spines, marbled endpapers. Several plates foxed, a few creases from misfolds, some offsetting to folding plates and to title, bindings rubbed, edgewear. First edition of Ross's famous first voyage. Ross, along with William Parry, James Clark Ross, and Edward Sabine (who would all become famous explorers in their own right) attempted on their journey to proceed westward through Lancaster Sound. Deceived, quite possibly by a mirage, Ross described the passage as barred by a mountain range that he named the Croker Mountains. He then returned to England, losing his only possibility of penetrating the Northwest passage. His observations were initially accepted as conclusive, and he was promoted to post rank on 7 December 1818. Controversy would soon follow, as Sir John Barrow, furious that the attempt to find the open polar sea had failed, vented his anger in person to Ross, and the Admiralty, having learned that there were some doubts as to the existence of the Croker Mountains, dispatched another expedition under the command of Parry. Edward Sabine, in his account of the voyage, claimed that Ross was the only person to have seen the Croker Mountains and that he had misrepresented some scientific results of the voyage. Parry's return in 1820 brought further proof that Ross's assertions had been incorrect, and, despite his willingness to make another voyage, Ross was not given another opportunity to lead an Arctic expedition until 1829.

        MEMOIRES POUR SERVIR A LA VIE D UN HOMME CELEBRE Complet 1819 NAPOLEON Rare

      Plancher, Paris 1819 - MEMOIRES POUR SERVIR A LA VIE D'UN HOMME CELEBRE (MEMOIRES SUR NAPOLEON) Par M. M****.‎ ‎Editions : Paris Plancher, 1819 Complet en 2 volumes reliés en un seul (5)-60-80-86-64 pages + 70-64-64-64 pages Reliure d'époque DOS et COIN CUIR, dos lisse orné de filets dorés. Pièce de titre.‎ ‎Edition originale anonyme de cet intéressant ouvrage, souvent attribué au "teinturier" Jean-Baptiste-Joseph REGAULT-WARIN, en huit parties à pagination séparée. Recueil d'anecdotes curieuses et parfois inédites sur l'Empereur NAPOLEON, sa vie privée, sa vis publique, les intrigues de la cour, sa vie militaire, etc. jusqu'à ce qui était rapporté ou colporté en Europe en 1819 de son exil à Sainte-Hélène . L'intérêt de cette suite publiée en 1819 est qu'elle présente l' Empereur sous un jour plutôt favorable non comme un monstre ( comme il était de règle à cette époque de la Restauration) mais plutôt comme un homme extraordinaire dont le destin hors norme demeure somme toute inséparable de celui de ses contemporains qu'ils aient fait partie de ses partisans ou de ses adversaires. L'auteur et l'éditeur ont clairement visé un public de Français nostalgiques de leur Empereur ! Avertissement de l'éditeur (extrait) : " C'est à la curiosité seule qu'on a voulu parler, en publiant ce recueil d'où on a eu le soin minutieux de bannir les réflexions pour ne s'attacher qu'aux faits. Ceux qui concernent l'homme que tous les partis s'accordent à nommer extraordinaire , doivent conséquemment inspirer une sorte d'intérêt à toutes les opinions. Il ne s'agit point, on le répète, de cet intérêt sue les factions croient ou disent de l'attachement, et qui n'est que de l'ambition déguisée , mais de ce sentiment mélangé d'étonnement et de curiosité qu'on éprouve à l'aspect d'un phénomène. On n'aime pas toujours ce qu'on admire ; et lorsque je ne sais quelle terreur se joint à l'admiration, l'objet qui l'excite est peut-être plus à plaindre qu'il n'est dangereux. Que cette eplication sincère des affections de l'éditeur le garantisse des inductions que l'erreur ou la mauvaise foi pourrait élever contre lui : il n'a prétendu que donner quelques coups de pinceau au portrait d'un homme qu'une génération a vu, dont celle qui la suit a entendu parler, et que la postérité seule pourra juger. Quant à quelques anecdotes sur plusieurs personnages que leur renommée a livrés à la publicité, outre qu'on ne garantit leur authenticité, qu'avec les modifications qu'exige le respect dû à la vérité, on a pris soin de ne pas compromettre, en les nommant, ceux qui en sont l'objet."

        Description of a new or improved method of constructing wheel-carriages; to which are prefixed, some observations on wheel carriages in general.

      Liverpool: printed by G.F. Harris's widow and brothers. 1819. 8vo., double-page engraved folding plate with 9 figures, 41 + (1)pp., with an author's advertisement slip tipped in before the text and with an errata leaf tipped in at the end, well bound in modern half calf, spine lettered in gilt. A fine copy. First, and apparently only, edition. The author seems to have been a Liverpool businessman who also published essays on gold bullion and banknotes. He describes himself as 'an obscure individual, neither a mechanic by profession, nor immediately connected with any of the various branches of agriculture, commerce, or communication wherein these vehicles [i.e. wheel carriages] are employed.' The essay is in fact a detailed specification, with engraved drawings, of Koster's patented designs for his 'New or Improved Method' which essentially involved shifting the weight of the body of the vehicle from between the wheels to the extremities of the axle-tree outside the wheels. In his advertisement slip, Koster announced that he was 'willing to treat with coach-makers, wheelwrights, builders of carts, waggons, &c. for the patent-right of constructing carriages according to his plan, in any particular county or district; or he will grant licences for building one or more carriages, to noblemen, gentlemen, farmers, coach-proprietors, carriers, &c. on very moderate terms, at his house in Liverpool, or by letters'.

        Kestril, Female

      Edinburgh 1819 - This magnificent, elephant folio engraving is from Prideux John Selby's "Illustrations of British Ornithology". The work was published in Edinburgh between 1819 and 1834. The engraving is on woven, J. Whatman watermarked paper. --- Selby was a prominent naturalist that received drawing lessons from John James Audubon and was friends witht he likes of John Gould, Sir William Jardine, William Yarrell, and H. E. Strickland. He is often referred to as the British Audubon. He rendered all of the engravings with birds in their true to life size. --- Christine Jackson of Sotheby's noted besides "collecting and preserving birds, Selby had observed them in the field, making careful notes of their habitat and habits. At his leisure, he also sensitively colored drawings of them. With this accumulation of practical knowledge, specimens, and some drawings, Selby embarked in 1819 on an ambitious project to publish the most up-to-date, life-size illustrations of British birds." --- "Selby etched his drawings on copper plates and then either took or sent the plates to William Home Lizars in Edinburgh. Either Lizars or one of his workmen took a pull [proof impression] from Selby's plate and worked on any parts necessary to bring the plate to a very fine state of completion. Selby and Sir William Jardine both purchased their copper plates and etching ground from Pontifex of London, and their letters refer to the progress made in drawing and 'biting' or etching their plates. If they made a mistake or accidently over-etched a plate, they relied on Lizars to correct by burnishing to lighten it." --- "The cool, classical quality of Selby's plates belongs to an age of elegance and could never have been achieved by the Victorian John Gould. Selby's bird figures were the most accurate delineation of British birds to that date, and the liveliest. After so many books with small, stiff bird portraits, this new atlas with life-sized figures and more relaxed drawing was a great achievement in the long history of bird illustration." (Jackson, Bird Etchings) --- There is some light smudging or foxing mostly to the edges. The work is in excellent condition overall. There may be a few minor imperfections to be expected with age. Please review the image carefully for condition and contact us with any questions. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

In the same year he was promoted to 'Unterlieutenant' in the Warasdiner Sanct-Georger Regiment. In 1809 he became Oberlieutenant in the General Quartiermeisterstaabe. With this staff he took part in the famous battle of the Zermania bridge in the Zermania valley, the patent explains that after the unfortunate military defeat in the Zermania valley he was the only officer present who lead the troops into battle near Grachacz and reunited lost parts of the army in doing so. In 1813 he became Hauptmann and was part of the second reserve armycorps of Freiherr von Hiller of the brigade of General Rebrovich. It was in this capacity that his ability to lead in battle became apparent. In 1813-1814 he fought in 12 battles that were part of the campaign. He earned the knighthood of the order of Maria Theresia with his conduct in the campaign amongst others at Weixelburg, Laschitz and Birknitz. He furthermore fought at Rovigo, Castagnara, Pontenura, Parma, Rubiera, Reggio and Piacenza. He also fought in the campaign against Napels in 1815, travelled to Briancon and Nizza and was attached to the armycorps of fieldmarshall-lieutenant Count of Bubna. Here he recieved the order of Sankt Mauritius und Lazarus from the King of Sardinia. The title Freiherr of Weixelburg refers to the battle he took part in at that town, currently in Slovenia. The Maria Theresia order was started by Empress Maria Theresia in 1757. H175
