        Travels In Georgia, Persia, Armenia, Ancient Babylonia, &c. &c. During The Years 1817. 1818. 1819, and 1820

      London: Longman, Hurst, Rees, Orme, And Brown, 1821. First edition. leather_bound. Full modern scarlet morocco. All edges speckled sepia. 2 vols. Fine/No Dust Jacket. (XXIII) 720, 869 pages. 28 x 21.5. 88 plates, five in color, 27 folding with two portrait frontispieces and two fold-out maps, plus wood engravings in the text. Our copy collates with all ABBEY TRAVEL 359, including no half-title, or plate list in Vol. I, but listed in second volume only. Plates are identical though some difference in plate numbering and positioning -- "A Persian Lady," noted as plate 5 by Abbey is plate 4 in this copy. Errata list and two advert pages Vol. II. Media for illustrations: uncolored line and stipple engravings, line engravings, colored and uncolored aquatints. Porter left St. Petersburg in August, 1817 which took him through the Caucasus to Teheran. His account of Persia remains today an important source for the region. At Persopolis he made drawings of the monuments and transcribed a number of cuneiform inscriptions, of great interest in the history of Assyriology. He traveled further to Shiraz, Isfahan, Ecbatana (a stop on the Silk Road, and a royal residence during the Parthian age), and Baghdad, then on to Scutari following the route of Xenophon's Persian expedition with the Ten Thousand. Porter was the first in modern times to locate the mausoleum of Cyrus The Great near Shiraz. Some occasional minor plate toning; nevertheless a very fresh copy. Binding not signed, raised bands, spine panels in elaborate gilt motifs, cover border panels, corners and center gilt decorated, inner dentelles, and marbled endpapers.

        Pathologische und chirurgische Beobachtungen über die Krankheiten der Gelenke. Aus dem Englischen übersetzt und mit Anmerkungen und Zusätzen begleitet von G.P. Holscher, Königlichen-Hannoverschem Hof-Chirurgus.

      . Hannover, in der Hahnschen Hof-Bhdlg., 1821, 8°, XVI, 400 pp., 2 Bll., mit 6 illuminirten und schwaren Kupfern, feiner Pappband d.Zt; Rücken erneuert; minimal fleckig.. Seltene erste deutsche Ausgabe des Werkes, das als Brodies bestes bezeichnet wird". - "Die Bahn zu einer vollkommenen Erkenntnis der Gelenkkrankheiten und zu ihrer Einteilung auf pathologisch-anatomischer Basis hat Sir Benjamin Brodie (1783-1862) gebrochen. Auf Grund seiner Untersuchungen zu der Anschauung gelangt, dass jede einzelne Textur der Gelenke primär ergriffen werden könnte, unterschied er, abgesehen von den einfachen, nicht entzündlichem Hydrarthrus, zunächst die entzündlichen Prozesse, verschiedener Art in der Synovialmembran, ferner destruktive Vorgänge in derselben, die er als eine in die Klasse der Tuberkel und Carzinome gehörige Entartung definierte. Bei der von den Autoren als 'weisse Geschwulst' benannten Affektion nahm er den Beginn des Zerfalls in den Knorpeln an; endlich charakterisierte er jene Art 'skrofulöser Erkrankung', bei welcher der cariöse Prozess an den Knochen mit spongiöser Textur (Epiphysen, Knochen des Carpus und Tarsus) beginne und von da auf die Gelenke übergehe". Puschmann III, p.113f. - - Sir Benjamin Collins Brodi (1883-1862) war ein berühmter englischer Chirurg (1783-1862) - "finden wir seine Arbeiten vorzugsweise auf die praktische Chirurgie gerichtet, namentlich die Gelenkskrankheiten, um deren Kenntniss er sich grosse Verdienste erworben hat." Gurlt, Hirsch II, 580f. - - First German Edition - "Brodies best work. It includes his description of hysterical pseudofracture of the spine and the first clinical description of ankylosing spondylitis. The fith edition, 1850 gives a description of "Brodie's disease" - chronic synovitis with a pulpy degeneration of the affected parts." Garrison & Morton - "His work, comprehensive for that time ... remained a standard monograph on the subjects during the first half of the century." Bick - - Garrison & Morton No. 4311 (1st. Engl.

The original three-quarterbinding is very good. the brown leather on the spine is chipped at the ends (although the underlying cloth is still in place), there is a small chip just below the gold titles on the spine and the brown leather on the corners is a bit chipped such that they are somewhat rounded. The boards are marbled and rubbed, surface and edges. Internally, it is in just wonderful condition, the 48 black & white portraits are all marvelously bright and clean as is all the text. No author is stated (Google books and WorldCat attribute it to Caulfield. It has 261 pages with minimal mild foxing and marbled edges and an errata sheet at the rear.

        An Inquiry into the Nature and Treatment of Gravel, Calculus, and other Diseases with a Deeranged Operation of the Urinary Organs.

      - London : Printed for Baldwin, Cradock, and Joy, Paternoster Row., 1821, 8°, VIII, 227, (3) pp., with 8 hand-coloured examples of sedinments on one text leaf, Halbleinenband der Zeit; Rücken erneuert; feines unbeschnittenes Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe! - William Prout (1785-1850), berühmter Arzt und Chemiker, beschäftigte sich namentlich mit der organischen Chemie und hielt von 1813 an in seinem Hause Vorlesungen, zu deren Besuchern auch Astley Cooper gehörte. Sein zuerst 1821 erschienenes Werk "Inquiry into the nature and treatment of gravel, calculus and other diseases of the urinary organs" verschaffte ihm großen Ruf. - Prout war einer der ersten, die Licht in viele dunkle Punkte des animalischen Lebens brachten; er gab zuerst eine klare Idee über die Zusammenstellung des Urins, die Verschiedenheiten desselben bei verschiedenen Thieren, die Steinbildung, und förderte gleichzeitig die Kenntniss der Verdauung durch den Nachweis, das der Magen im normalen Zustand stets freie Salzsäure enthält. cit. nach Hirsch IV, p.632f. - - Prout, "whose name in chemistry is particularly associated with his hypothesis that all atomic weights are a multiple of the atomic weight of hydrogen". J. Büttner & C. Habrich, Roots of Clinical Chemistry, p.84 - - "In 1815, Vogel published his researches on the reduction of metallic salts by sugar, and this work was carried further by William Prout who proved that urinary sugar differed from cane sugar." Murphy, p.149 - - Prout is also remembered, however, for his researches into physical chemistry. In 1815, based on the tables of atomic weights available at the time, he anonymously hypothesized that the atomic weight of every element is an integer multiple of that of hydrogen, suggesting that the hydrogen atom is the only truly fundamental particle (which he called protyle, and that the atoms of the other elements are made of groupings of various numbers of hydrogen atoms. While Prout's hypothesis was not borne out by later more-accurate measurements of atomic weights, it was a sufficiently fundamental insight into the structure of the atom that in 1920, Ernest Rutherford chose the name of the newly discovered proton to, among other reasons, give credit to Prout. - cf.

A rare title. * In February 1820, Charles-Ferdinand, Duke of Berry, the last living male in the Bourbon line, was stabbed to death in front of the Paris Opera by an apparently deranged citizen.

The present work critiques the official coroner's reports following the assassination.

        A Treatise of Algebra: Wherein the Principles are Demonstrated, and Applied in Many Useful and Interesting Inquiries, and in the Resolution of a Great Variety of Problems of Different Kinds

      Philadelphia: Printed for M. Carey & Sons, .... 1821. First. Second American edition, revised, corrected and improved. Octavo. 408pp. Rebound in modern quarter brown morocco and cloth boards, with morocco label gilt. Binding has light wear, and a slight crease to one corner, and is near fine; there is foxing and edgewear in the text, overall very good. Joseph Ray's copy with his ownership signature and the price he paid for the book on the first blank: "Joseph Ray, Cincinnati, Ohio. $1.50." Also laid in between page 280 and 281 is a small slip of paper (approximately 4" x 5") signed "Ray" and with complex equations on each side. Ray was a professor of mathematics and wrote several books on the subject, beginning in 1834 with An Introduction to Ray's Eclectic Arithmetic, the first of a series of six textbooks which became the most popular and widely used American mathematics textbooks of the Nineteenth Century. They also formed the basis for Ray's Mathematical Series of textbooks. As late as 1913, annual sales exceeded a quarter of a million copies a year, and total sales of the arithmetic books alone are estimated at 120 million copies. The success of Ray's Arithmetic series prompted his publisher to seek an author for a set of readers. They chose William Holmes McGuffey, who joined Ray on the faculty of Woodward College, and where he wrote the McGuffey Readers which surpassed even Ray's Arithmetics to become the most popular textbooks ever written. .
