Frederick Albert Winsor (ursprünglich Friedrich Albrecht Winzer, * Braunschweig 1763, ? Paris 1830), Pionier der Gastechnik, unternahm, 1804 mit einem Privileg König Georgs III. von England ausgestattet, die ersten Versuche in Europa zur Straßenbeleuchtung mit Gas. - An Monsieur de Berat, "President du Conseil de Salubrité" in Paris, den er um Befürwortung des ihm sehr am Herzen liegenden Projekts einer Gasbeleuchtung für Paris bittet. Die ausgearbeiteten Pläne habe er dem Adressaten bereits am 4. November zugestellt; Einwände könne es kaum geben in Anbetracht seiner erfolgreichen Beleuchtung der Place St. Michel, die seit ihrer Einführung vor zweieinhalb Jahren den Anwohnern keinen Anlass zur Klage gegeben habe. - - ". M'étant presenté deuxfois à Votre Hotel, sans avoir eu l'honneur de Vous recontrer, je prends la liberté, à Vous faire observer, que j'ai apris à la Prefecture de Police, que Vous etiez nanti depuis le 4 Novbr. d'un objet qui me concerne et dont j'ai fort à cour, le developpement ulterieur et dont les pieces Vous ont été referées. - - J'ose esperer, que ni le Terrain en question, ni l'établissement des Usines d'Eclairage par le Gaz, peuvent plus fournir matière d'objection, vu, leur augmentation depuis que j'ai établit le premier Atelier d'Eclairage en l'Eglise de St. Louis au Jardin du Luxembourg, derrière la place de St. Michel - et dont les habitans ne sont jamais plaint pendant les deux ans et demi, que j'ai eclairé ce quartier. - - Ainsi, j'attends de Votre complaisance un rapport favorable à mes voux e à celui, de la verité ." - - In der Unterschrift weist Winsor auf sein von König Ludwig XVIII. verliehenes Privileg hin: "F A Winsor / brevêté par S. M. pour l'Eclairage par le gaz carbonné depuis 1815". - - Briefe dieses bedeutenden Ingenieurs, dessen Pionierleistungen von ökonomischen Misserfolgen überschattet wurden, sind äußerst selten im Handel, zumal solche, die seine lebenslange Leidenschaft zum Gegenstand haben.

        Dissertatio Inauguralis Physiologica sistens Commentarii de Phoronomia Animalium. Decano et Promotore A.Fr.Jos. Carolo Mayer.

      . Bonnae, Typis C.F. Thormanni, Decembris 1822, Kl.4°, 44 pp., 1 Bl., 1 gefalt. lith. Tafel., OBrosch; leicht wasserfleckig!. Extrem Selten! - - Johannes Müller (1801-1858) zu Coblenz als Sohn eines Schuhmachers geboren, war schon als Knabe ungewöhnlich veranlagt und von dem derzeitigen Leiter der Schulen in den Rheinlanden, dem späteren vortragenden Rat im preuss. Unterrichtsministerium Joh.Schulze auf alle Weise gefördert, studierte seit 1819 und promovierte 1822 in Bonn. - Zum Zweck der Ablegung des med. Staatsexamen begab er sich dann nach Berlin und trat hier während eines 1 1/2 jährigen Aufenthaltes zu RUDOLPHI in nähere Beziehungen, was für Müller's Ausbildung von wohlthätigem Einfluss insofern war, als Müller nach eigenem Geständnis von Rudolphi der naturphilosophischen Richtung entfremdet und der unbefangenen Naturbetrachtung, speziell den anatomischen Studien, zugeführt wurde. Nach seiner Rückkehr aus Berlin habilitierte Müller sich 1824 in Bonn als Privatdozent, wurde 1826 a.o., 1830 ord. Prof. und 1833 als ord. Prof. der Anatomie und Physiologie, sowie als Direktor des anatomischen Theaters und anatomischen-zootomischen Museums an Rudolphi's Stelle nach Berlin berufen. Hier wirkte er als eine der Zierden der Berliner Fakultät und Universität bis zu seinem 28.April 1858 plötzlich an Herzleiden erfolgten Tode. - Müller wird zu Recht als glorreiches Haupt und anerkannter Führer einer biologischen Schule verehrt. Als Forscher und Lehrer vielseitig und bahnbrechend wie selten jemand, hat er in beiden Beziehungen namentlich auf den Gebieten der vergleichenden Anatomie und Physiologie eine geradezu überwältigende Tätigkeit entwickelt und diese Disziplinen mit zahllosen Neuerungen bereichert.-cf.Pagel - - Erste und einzige Ausgabe der extrem seltenen Dissertation von Johannes Müller. - "Die Bewegungsstudien an Gliedertieren, die der Einjährig-Freiwillige drei Jahre vorher an der Koblenzer Kasernenmauer begonnen hatte, fanden also eine Fortsetzung. Die im Isis-Aufsatz (seine erste Publikation) mitgeteilten Gedanken und Beobachtungen wurden noch erheblich vermehrt und dann von Müller als Inaugural-Dissertation unter dem Titel "De Phoronomia Animalium" (deutsch etwa: "Bewegungsgesetze im Tierreich") bei der Medizinischen Fakultät der Universität Bonn eingereicht. Das Grundprinzip vergleichender Physiologie wird bereits hier angewandt: ein und dieselbe Funktion, hier die Bewegung, wird bei Tieren der verschiedensten systematischen Zugehörigkeit untersucht und in Vergleich gebracht. Viele von Müller mitgeteilte Einzelbeobachtungen sind wertvoll und wurden von ihm später in sein "Handbuch der Physiologie" aufgenommen." - "So wird das Leben in der Bewegung gedeutet als eine "organische Säule"; die Pole sind Bewegung und Streckung, oder die Kreisbewegung und die Bewegung in der Längenform: - beide auseinandergerissene Hälften der parabolischen Linie, auf welcher das Leben spielt"." - "Nun - wenige Jahre später hätte Müller diese Sätze nicht mehr geschrieben, und es ist zu glauben, was Du Bois-Reymond mitteilt: "Mit solchem Ingrimm blickte Müller nachmals auf diese Verirrungen zurück, daß er selber dieser Arbeiten nie wieder gedachte, und jedes Exemplar, dessen er habhaft werden konnte, a u f k a u f t e und v e r b r a n n t e"." - G. Koller, Johannes Müller, 1958, S.32-34 - "Unter seinen Thesen verteidigt er u.a. die Auffassung:"Psychologus nemo, nisi physiologus". Das ist ein Gegenstand, den er auch später hin oft behandelt hat." - Später in "Berlin wird Müller für immer von seiner Neigung zur romantischen Interpretation der Natur geheilt, ohne daß er den Wert einer philosophischen Betrachtung der Natur je geleugnet, noch für überflüssig erklärt hätte. Ganz im Gegenteil, er hat es immer wieder ausgesprochen, daß es keine sinnvolle naturwissenschaftliche Forschung gibt ohne die Einordnung des Erfahrenen in das nur gedanklich zu erfassende und zu erweiternde Gesamtbild der Natur." siehe ausführlich - K.E. Rothschuh, Geschichte der Physiologie, 1953, pp.112-118

        The Fossils of the South Downs; Or Illustrations of the Geology of Sussex

      London: Lupton Relfe, 1822.. First edition, 4to, (xvi), 327, (1 advertisement) pp. 41 plates, 2 folding and 4 hand coloured plus a hand coloured geological map, some mostly light foxing, bookplate of the Earl of Enniskillen. Contemporary half calf, marbled sides, gilt banded and blind stamped spine with a maroon label, recent expert restoration to the top of the spine and joints. "...Mantell's first and in some respects most important book... a systematic description, by stratum, of the Secondary and Tertiary formations of Sussex. Mantell also described and illustrates the fossils to be found in each stratum. Seventy-six of these fossils, new to science, were here named by him for his scientific friends... he was able to note... a number of fossil plants, shells, and fishes, together with some extremely curious vertebrae, teeth, and bones of unknown but obviously gigantic reptiles. As time would reveal, these... included both Megalosaurus and Iguanadon" (Dean). William Cole, 3rd Earl of Enniskillen, was a keen palaeontologist and from a young age put together a large collection of fossil fish housed at the family seat Florence Court, often travelling in search of new specimens with his friend, the great fossil collector, Sir Philip de Malpas Grey-Egerton. Both naturalists' collections were later acquired by what became the Natural History Museum at South Kensington. A contemporary of Mantell, the latter's journal entry for 15th June 1842 records a Geological Society meeting where he "Gossiped with Dr. Buckland, Grant, Lord Enniskillen, Sir P.G. Egerton, Mr. Greenough, Murchison... etc." Dean 40.

        O Mudo de Pernambuco, ou Gervazio em Lisboa.

      [Colophon] Lisbon, Na Officina que foi de Lino da Silva Godinho, 1822. - Caption title. "M" in "Mudo" of title printed right side up. 8 pp. 4°, disbound. In very good condition. Old ink foliation, "217-224" in upper outer corners. ---- FIRST and ONLY EDITION, with the caption title apparently in its second state. Two sonnets and a 45-stanza poem directed against Gervasio Pires Ferreira, who was derisively known in Lisbon as the "the Mute of Pernambuco." These poems were printed while Gervasio Pires Ferreira was being held prisoner in Lisbon after the failure of the Junta in 1822. The nickname "the Mute of Pernambuco" originated in the loss of speech that he experienced after he was sent to a prison in Bahia for participating in the revolution of 1817. Gervasio Pires Ferreira was elected president of the assembly of Pernambuco in 1821, after which he regained his power of speech. ---- Borba de Moraes (1983), II, 601.

Toning, light soiling to title page, creases to corners of a few leaves. An appealing copy. * Only edition. Carlile was one of the most prolific freethinking journalist-publisher-political activists of his day. As one would suspect, he was often at odds with the government. In 1819 he was fined 1,500 pounds and imprisoned for three years for six counts of "blasphemous libel." He published this account of the first day of his 1819 trial after his release. It deals with the information against him for publishing Thomas Paine's Age of Reason and Examination of the Passages in the New Testament Quoted from the Old and Called prophecies concerning Jesus Christ, which Carlile issued as The Age of Reason, Part the Third. Portions of these were read in court by Carlile with commentary. Catalogue of the Library of the Harvard Law School II:1035. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Die Zarin selbst sei ihrerseits sehr erfreut darüber, daß Marie Louise in ihrer Ruhe so zufrieden sei. - Die Reise von Alexander I. sollte diesen jedoch schlußends nicht zu Marie Louise führen, wie einem Brief Alexanders an diese vom 1./13. Dezember 1882 zu entnehmen ist (Karl & Faber, Auktion 63, Nr. 257). - Papierbedingt etwas gebräunt und mit alten Ausrissen am linken Rand (minimale Buchstabenberührung).

        Dissertatio Inauguralis Physiologica sistens Commentarii de Phoronomia Animalium. Decano et Promotore A.Fr.Jos. Carolo Mayer.

      - Bonnae, Typis C.F. Thormanni, Decembris 1822, Kl.4°, 44 pp., 1 Bl., 1 gefalt. lith. Tafel., OBrosch; leicht wasserfleckig! Extrem Selten! - - Johannes Müller (1801-1858) zu Coblenz als Sohn eines Schuhmachers geboren, war schon als Knabe ungewöhnlich veranlagt und von dem derzeitigen Leiter der Schulen in den Rheinlanden, dem späteren vortragenden Rat im preuss. Unterrichtsministerium Joh.Schulze auf alle Weise gefördert, studierte seit 1819 und promovierte 1822 in Bonn. - Zum Zweck der Ablegung des med. Staatsexamen begab er sich dann nach Berlin und trat hier während eines 1 1/2 jährigen Aufenthaltes zu RUDOLPHI in nähere Beziehungen, was für Müller's Ausbildung von wohlthätigem Einfluss insofern war, als Müller nach eigenem Geständnis von Rudolphi der naturphilosophischen Richtung entfremdet und der unbefangenen Naturbetrachtung, speziell den anatomischen Studien, zugeführt wurde. Nach seiner Rückkehr aus Berlin habilitierte Müller sich 1824 in Bonn als Privatdozent, wurde 1826 a.o., 1830 ord. Prof. und 1833 als ord. Prof. der Anatomie und Physiologie, sowie als Direktor des anatomischen Theaters und anatomischen-zootomischen Museums an Rudolphi's Stelle nach Berlin berufen. Hier wirkte er als eine der Zierden der Berliner Fakultät und Universität bis zu seinem 28.April 1858 plötzlich an Herzleiden erfolgten Tode. - Müller wird zu Recht als glorreiches Haupt und anerkannter Führer einer biologischen Schule verehrt. Als Forscher und Lehrer vielseitig und bahnbrechend wie selten jemand, hat er in beiden Beziehungen namentlich auf den Gebieten der vergleichenden Anatomie und Physiologie eine geradezu überwältigende Tätigkeit entwickelt und diese Disziplinen mit zahllosen Neuerungen bereichert.-cf.Pagel - - Erste und einzige Ausgabe der extrem seltenen Dissertation von Johannes Müller. - "Die Bewegungsstudien an Gliedertieren, die der Einjährig-Freiwillige drei Jahre vorher an der Koblenzer Kasernenmauer begonnen hatte, fanden also eine Fortsetzung. Die im Isis-Aufsatz (seine erste Publikation) mitgeteilten Gedanken und Beobachtungen wurden noch erheblich vermehrt und dann von Müller als Inaugural-Dissertation unter dem Titel "De Phoronomia Animalium" (deutsch etwa: "Bewegungsgesetze im Tierreich") bei der Medizinischen Fakultät der Universität Bonn eingereicht. Das Grundprinzip vergleichender Physiologie wird bereits hier angewandt: ein und dieselbe Funktion, hier die Bewegung, wird bei Tieren der verschiedensten systematischen Zugehörigkeit untersucht und in Vergleich gebracht. Viele von Müller mitgeteilte Einzelbeobachtungen sind wertvoll und wurden von ihm später in sein "Handbuch der Physiologie" aufgenommen." - "So wird das Leben in der Bewegung gedeutet als eine "organische Säule"; die Pole sind Bewegung und Streckung, oder die Kreisbewegung und die Bewegung in der Längenform: - beide auseinandergerissene Hälften der parabolischen Linie, auf welcher das Leben spielt"." - "Nun - wenige Jahre später hätte Müller diese Sätze nicht mehr geschrieben, und es ist zu glauben, was Du Bois-Reymond mitteilt: "Mit solchem Ingrimm blickte Müller nachmals auf diese Verirrungen zurück, daß er selber dieser Arbeiten nie wieder gedachte, und jedes Exemplar, dessen er habhaft werden konnte, a u f k a u f t e und v e r b r a n n t e"." - G. Koller, Johannes Müller, 1958, S.32-34 - "Unter seinen Thesen verteidigt er u.a. die Auffassung:"Psychologus nemo, nisi physiologus". Das ist ein Gegenstand, den er auch später hin oft behandelt hat." - Später in "Berlin wird Müller für immer von seiner Neigung zur romantischen Interpretation der Natur geheilt, ohne daß er den Wert einer philosophischen Betrachtung der Natur je geleugnet, noch für überflüssig erklärt hätte. Ganz im Gegenteil, er hat es immer wieder ausgesprochen, daß es keine sinnvolle naturwissenschaftliche Forschung gibt ohne die Einordnung des Erfahrenen in das nur gedanklich zu erfassende und zu erweiternde Gesamtbild der Natur." siehe ausführlich - K.E. Rothschuh, . [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[FIVE VOLUMES]

      London, Printed for William Baynes and Son, 1822.. Five volumes. Royal octavo. Pp. xxxv, 479; xvi, 524; xiv, 468; ix, (iii), 502; viii, 288, ccxii, including Supplement, Appendix, Index. Engraved frontispiece portrait to the first volume (offset onto title-page). Hardcover, handsomely bound in modern quarter cloth, spines with matching decorative labels, gilt; entirely untrimmed, partly unopened; occasionally light sporadic foxing. In fine condition. A most attractive set. ~ Daniel Neal (1678-1743), English historian, minister, and Nonconformist divine, was educated at the Merchant Taylors School, and at the universities of Utrecht and Leiden. In 1704 he became assistant minister, and in 1706 sole minister, of an independent congregation worshipping in Aldersgate Street, and afterwards in Jewin Street, London, where he remained almost until his death. In 1720 he published his ?History of New England?, which obtained for its author the honorary degree of M.A. from Harvard college. He also undertook to assist Dr. John Evans in writing a history of Nonconformity. Evans, however, died in 1730, and, making use of his papers for the period before 1640, Neal wrote the whole of the work himself. This ?History of the Puritans? deals with the time between the Reformation and 1689. The first volume appeared in 1732, and the fourth and last in 1738. ?The History of the Puritans? was edited, in five volumes, by Dr Joshua Toulmin (1740-1815), who added a life of Neal in 1797. This was reprinted in 1822, and an edition in two volumes was published in New York in 1844. With the small oval stamp of New College London.
