        Recherches chimiques sur les corps gras d?origine animale

      F. G. Levrault 1823 With 1 plate and 3 folding tables, numerous text tables. An extraordinary copy, unpressed and bound in the original printed boards; some foxing. From the library of Eleanor R. Webster, professor of chemistry at Wellesley College. Preserved in a folding clamshell box. First edition of the author?s classic study of animal fats. He determined that fats are composed of fatty acids and glycerol, easily separated by saponification. He also discovered several chemical species such as oleic, butyric, caproic and capric acids, stearic acid (?stearine?), cholesterol (?cholesterine?) and glycerol (?glycérine?). The first part contains definitions and descriptions of Chevreul?s method of analysis, as well as a description of all species of fats and their saponification products. He here describes the discovery of stearic acid by the resolution of the soap of sheep fat into two distinct components. The next section contains a comparison of the different animal fats and a discussion of saponification. The final chapter is a summary and a series of conjectures on the immediate components of fats. Few areas of chemistry had been so thoroughly explored at the time Chevreul conducted his experiments. His discoveries led to the establishment of the great industry of stearin candles. According to the DSB, ?Chevreul?s Recherches is a full account of the chemistry of fats. He had revealed the nature of a large and important class of organic substances and had shown that they were composed of a few chemical species which were amenable to analysis and obeyed the same laws of chemical combination followed by simpler substances in the inorganic realm. The book is a model of complete, exhaustive research in organic chemistry.? Chevreul (1768 - 1889), who lived to nearly 103 years old, was an active chemist for 80 years. The student of the eminent French chemist Vauquélin (1763 - 1829), he succeeded him as chair at the Muséum d?Histoire Naturelle, a position which he held for over thirty years. Appointed director of the famous dye factory Gobelins, it was while there that he accomplished his important research on dyes and developed his remarkable analysis of colour.

Mr. Guthrie has not confined himself to the results of mere personal experience.

Page 23/24 in facimile. * The very rare first edition.<br>Sir William Hillary, (1771-1847). Founder of the Royal National Lifeboat Institution 1824. A soldier who was created a Baronet on 8 November 1805 for his services to king and country. He settled at Fort Anne, Douglas in 1806 where he witnessed a large number of wrecks on the rocks in Douglas Bay. Living at Fort Anne, Douglas, Isle of Man, Hillary soon became aware of the treacherous nature of the Irish Sea, with many ships being wrecked around the Manx coast. He drew up plans for a lifeboat service manned by trained crews, intended not only for the Isle of Man, but for all of the British coast. In February 1823 he published this pamphlet; initially he received little response from the Admiralty but on appealing to the more philanthropic members of London society, including Thomas Wilson (MP for Southwark) and George Hibbert, chairman of the West Indies Merchants, the plans were enthusiastically adopted and the National Institution for the Preservation of Life from Shipwreck was founded on 4 March 1824 at a meeting in The Tavern, Bishopsgate Street, London..

        Cap. XCVI. An Act to provide... for the better Administration of Justice in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, and for the more effectual Government thereof

      London: George Eyre and Andrew Strahan, 1823. Folio, pp. [1341]-1362, armorial letterhead, fine. Convict surgeons empowered to punish at will. Historically significant Act of Parliament relating to the laws and courts of New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land, containing ten clauses directly pertaining to convict management. Importantly, this Act establishes the Supreme Court in New South Wales and Van Diemen's Land and contains much detail it's regarding scope and powers. The second last clause allows for the future separation of Van Diemen's Land from the jurisdiction of the Governor of New South Wales 'at any Time seem fit to His Majesty'.One fascinating aspect of this Act regards a change in the status of surgeons aboard convict transports. Government appointed surgeons and other sanctioned medical officers are hereby authorised to effect 'moderate punishment or correction' of convicts under their care aboard transports to New South Wales. In this respect surgeons were to follow existing procedures aboard the hulks, with punishments similar to those 'inflicted by Law on Convicts confined on board Vessels in the River Thames by the Superintendent or Overseer of those vessels.' Curiously, this authority raised the prominence of surgeons in naval circles.Other clauses detail new laws regulating the labour of mechanics and craftsmen assigned to free settlers and the punishment of those caught assisting escaped convicts. Ironically, an entire section stipulates that any person sentenced to transportation who then commits a further offence regularly punishable by transportation shall be detained in New South Wales for the time of the additional sentence (thereby removing the need to banish felons from a place of banishment).Of special interest is a lengthy clause reinforcing the Act of 1790 authorising the Governor to remit the sentences of transported felons under his care. However, the Act laments the oversight of the Governors of New South Wales in duly informing His Majesty's agents in Britain of the full details of convicts granted pardons or conditional pardons at their discretion. As a result such pardons 'have not been inserted in the General Pardon of the Great Seal of Great Britain' and lack constitutional integrity. The Act tardily states that all such paperwork be completed by the first day of January for the following year.

        Gelungener Versuch einer Nasenbildung aus einem völlig getrennten Hautstück aus dem Beine (pp.569-582).

      - Journ. Chir. Augenh., 4/4. - Hrsg. v. Graefe & Walther. - Berlin, im Verlag von G. Reimer, 1823, pp.569-767, 1 gefalt. Kupfertafeln, feiner Pappband. FIRST FREE SKIN TRANSPLANTATION. - FIRST AND ONLY EDITION. - ERSTE AUSGABE. Im Jahre 1818 führte Bünger die erfolgreiche Transplantation eines freien Hautlappens vom Oberschenkel zum Nasenersatz durch. Die Anregungen zu seinem Vorgehen hatte Bünger aus Nachrichten von jenem indischen Verfahren der freien Hautverpflanzug gewonnnen. Bünger verwendete einen freien Lappen vom Oberschenkel, von dem er "über die Hälfte der Dicke von der zu starken Fetthaut wegzunehmen für nöthig fand". Der Bünger'sche Lappen enthält also Oberhaut, Lederhaut und einen Teil des Unterhautfettgewebes. Der Lappen heilt bis auf den unteren Teil, aus dem Nasenspitze, Septum und Flügel entstehen sollten, gut an und vereinigt sich später mit gestielten Lappen vom Arm und Wange, die den letzten Defekt schließen. - Diese durch den Marburger Anatomen u. Chirurgen erfolgte Anwendung einer freien Hauttransplantation bei einem Lupus der Nase war von epochemachender Bedeutung für die weitere Entwicklung der plastischen Chirurgie. - - The first successful modern attempt at free skin transplantation. He used the method to restore the nose of a woman who had suffered for fifteen years from a skin eruption that caused the loss of here nose and affected other areas of the face so that a forehead or cheek graft was inadvisable. Christian Heinrich Bünger (1782-1842) chose as a donar site the superior lateral surface of the upper thigh, taking an oval piece of skin four by three inches which he trimmed to shape and applied to the freshened nasal region one and a half hour after removal, a delay caused by attempts to stanch excessive bleeding in the freshened area. The graft was partially successful and a year later other procedures, carried out on the upper lip and nose with a flap from the arm, successfully brought further improvement of appearance. - Gnudi & Webster. - Bünger's account appeared in the literature as an isolated case report, but it forms a tangible link in the historical chain of plastic, surgery. - Gnudi-Webster, 328; Wallace, Progress of Plastic Surgery, 134-35; Mc Dowell, Source Book of Plastic Surgery, 108-112; Mc Dowell, Zeis Index 1/ P.94 + No. 729; Zeis, Literatur.

        Der heilige Abt Antonius bei der Leiche des heiligen Eremiten Paulus von Theben

      um 1823 um 1823. Bleistift auf Papier, 38,5 x 29,8 cm. Provenienz: Sammlung Prinz Johann Georg von Sachsen (Lugt 4484). Professionell unter säurefreiem Museumspassepartout montiert.. Die Begegnung der beiden ersten christlichen Eremiten Antonius Abbas und Paulus von Theben ist in der bildenden Kunst häufig dargestellt worden. Nicht nur auf dem Isenheimer Altar erscheint sie, sondern auch bei Dürer und vielen anderen. Besonders jene Szene, in der ein Rabe Paulus und seinem Gast einen ganzen Laib Brot zum Verzehr bringt. Josef von Führich wählte für das vorliegende Blatt allerdings die selten dargestellte Beerdigung des Paulus. Dieser spürte seinen kurz bevorstehenden Tod und bat Antonius, ihm den Mantel des heiligen Athanasius für die Beerdigung zu bringen. Noch auf dem Weg zu seiner eigenen Höhle erschien ihm der Geist des Paulus und als er zurückgekehrt war, fand er ihn kniend und mit zum Gebet erhobenen Händen. Da ihm für das Ausheben eines Grabes die Werkzeuge fehlten, näherten sich zwei Löwen und scharrten für ihn eine Grube. Eben jenen Moment verbildlicht Führich. In klaren Linien und mit prägnantem Faltenwurf zeigt er den niedergesunkenen Leichnam, der von Antonius' Knie gestützt wird, einer Beweinung Christi nicht unähnlich. So scharf umrissen und monumental erstarrt die beiden Heiligen sind, so diffus und wild sind die landschaftliche Umgebung und die beiden Löwen gezeigt. Alles konzentriert sich auf die Trauerszene, der Rest wirkt wie ein im Unscharfen verharrendes Beiwerk. Diese Fokussierung ist von besonderem Interesse, greift sie doch eine Tendenz der religiösen Historienmalerei auf, die in Overbeck ihren Gipfel erreicht hat. Nicht die Handlung steht im Vordergrund, sondern die Reflexion. Jegliche Aktivität wird in der abgetrennten und in sich festgezurrten Form der Heiligen stillgestellt. Im Vergleich mit einem der wenigen historischen Darstellungen der Szene wird dies besonders deutlich: Diego Velazquez hat sie in seiner Version gänzlich in den Hintergrund gedrückt und stattdessen die Ankunft des Raben fokussiert, wie die meisten anderen Künstler auch (Vgl.-Abb. 5)3. Hier lassen sich Handlung, Dynamik und Affekt vortrefflich darstellen. Doch Führich rückt die Kontemplation, das Einfühlen in den Vordergrund. Auch inhaltlich gibt er dies vor, wenn er Antonius in eben jener Stellung (kniend und mit erhobenen Händen) zeigt, in der er Paulus vorgefunden haben soll. Der Übergang der andächtigen Hingabe von Paulus auf Antonius soll Anleitung für den Betrachter sein, diesen Schritt ebenfalls nachzuverfolgen. Mit diesem Fokus auf die reflexive Leistung des Betrachters tritt die Verifikation der Szene durch genaue Naturnachahmung in den Hintergrund. Die Form richtet sich nach den Möglichkeiten der Einfühlung und wird dadurch auf klare Strukturen ohne Affekt und Handlungsklimax zurückgeführt. Führich stand mit dieser weniger an ästhetischer als an emotionaler Reinheit orientierten Linie im starken Gegensatz zu den akademischen Strömungen seiner Zeit in Wien. Erst die Begegnung mit dem Werk Dürers offenbarte ihm eine "Form, hervorgegangen aus der tiefen Erkenntnis ihrer Bedeutung"4, wie er in seinen Lebenserinnerungen schreibt. Es ist eben jene zur contemplatio anregende Reinheit der Form, die Führich in diesem frühen Blatt praktiziert, das noch vor seiner Begegnung mit Overbeck entstand. Es zeigt bereits, wie meisterhaft er es verstand, den Bleistift für diese Zwecke zu verwenden.

Crisp and clean, but the tables at pp. 45 and 109 (much larger than the text block) are cropped, with loss of a several letters of text on each of 5 lines on p. 45, and 4-5 letters of text on a dozen lines on p. 109. Overall very good. ---- FIRST EDITION, not to be confused with Rocha de Mazarem's later @Compilação de doutrinas obstetricas em forma de compendio, Lisbon 1833--although, like the @Compilacão, the @Compendio was intended as a handbook for students of obstetrics. The author, who acknowledges his debt to such figures as Baudeloque, Gardien, Capuron, Maygrier and Chaussier (p. iii), covers conception and pregnancy, but most of the book (pp. 43-136) is devoted to an exhaustive discussion of normal and abnormal births. The tables at pp. 45, 61, and 109 classify births according to the orientation of the fetus.Rocha Mazarem (1775-1849), a native of Chaves, accompanied the royal family to Brazil in 1807, as surgeon on the @Principe Real. In 1822 he returned to Lisbon, and when this work was published, was teaching obstetrics at the Hospital Nacional e Real de São José. From its foundation in 1825 until his death, he was professor of obstetrics at the Escola Medico-Cirurgica de Lisboa.---- Not in Innocêncio; on the author, see IV, 150 and XII, 139.

        THE STATUTES AT LARGE: BEING A COLLECTION OF ALL THE LAWS OF VIRGINIA FROM THE FIRST SESSION OF THE LEGISLATURE IN THE YEAR 1619 (Volumes 1 - 13; Complete set)

      Full Leather. Very Good binding. Published by various hands: Volume I: Bartow in New York (1823); Volumes II-IV: Samuel Pleasant in Richmond (1810-1814); Volumes V-VII: W. W. Gray at the Franklin Press in Richmond (1819-1820); Volume VIII-XII: C. & G. Cochran in Richmond (1821-1823); and Volume XIII: Thomas Desilver in Philadelphia (1823). All are full bound in sheep with morocco title and volume labels, generally uniformly bound, with some minor variation in the labels. The number label of Volume 2 has been removed from an odd volume, and altered to read "2" -- it matches the other labels. Volume 7 has some loss to the leading edge of the text block (probably from vermin) not affecting any text. The official catalogue of the laws of Virginia. For over a century and a half, in the colony of Virginia and then in the Commonwealth, no official effort was made to preserve a formal record of the laws passed by the General Assembly. To remedy the obvious problems which resulted--lawyers and courts were far from uniform in their application of the law--the General Assembly, 1n 1795, authorized the publication of laws passed from the earliest days of the Colony, and then the Commonwealth. It was not until 1808 that the projects was actually undertaken, and William Waller Hening was placed in charge. The 13 volumes were published in the 'teens and the twenties. Hening relied heavily on Thomas Jefferson's collection of the laws, and Jefferson penned the Preface to Volume 1. Jefferson provided Hening with a promotional letters to help him increase subscriptions to the work in which he states, "The compilation appears to be correctly & judiciously made, and gives us exactly what I had so long cosnidered as a desideratum for our country." The first 7 volumes have the name label of one "William W. Boyd", presumbably a Virginia lawyer; interestingly, the last 6 volumes have the bookplate of Mary Johnston, the Virginia novelist. Very Good binding.

        The Social Day: A Poem, in Four Cantos

      London: Printed by J.(ames) Moyes, Greville Street for James Carpenter & Son, Old Bond Street; and R. Ackermann, Strand, 1823 - The plate on page 288, "Silent the guest surveyed the crowd", engraved by Charles Warren, the leading protagonist of steel-engraving at this time, is dated 1822, and has traditionally been considered to be the first steel- engraved book illustration. Basil Hunnisett, in Steel Engraved Book Illustrations in England, expresses doubts as to whether it actually was engraved on steel, suggesting that the first may be Warren's engraving of Adam and Eve for an 1822 edition of Paradise Lost. Whatever the case may be, Coxe's poem - a paean to the pleasures of rural pastimes, especially sporting amusements - is beautifully illustrated in this sumptous Ackermann production. Berry and Poole, in Annals of Printing, dates the first steel engravings at 1823, but does not cite a specific book. The book has an illustration by Constable, one of the first artists lending their work to this new media. A note at the front of the book and on the list of subscribers identifies this as Scottish artist David Wilkie's copy. He painted the scene after which the plate at page 288 was engraved First Edition, Large Paper copy. 4to (11 x 7-1/2 inches).

Upon termination of his obligations with Mascagni?s heirs, he seems to have considered the rights his own and republished the plates in the present edition, with some modifications, under his own name - without denying their provenance. He nevertheless failed to cite Mascagni on the title page and this was poorly received by the medical community. The work was conceived so that the entire human body might be represented (in life size) by joining three of the plates together. This may be achieved a number of times to depict the complete skeleton, the blood vessels, the muscles (front and back) and the viscera. Further detailed plates are dedicated to the brain, the heart, the lymphatic system, etc.?. Cfr.

"First edition, 8vo, pp. [iii]-xiv, 574, [2]; 7 engraved plates (2 folding); bound without the half-title in contemporary half polished tan calf, black morocco label on gilt-decorated spine; upper joint tender, else very good. Neill writes in his Preface that the journey, on which he was accompanied by John Hay and J. MacDonald, was undertaken to ""take notice of any new or uncommon varieties of fruits and culinary vegetables, which it might be desirable to introduce into Scotland; and to establish a correspondence with some of the principal amateur cultivators and professional nurserymen."" Neill (1776-1851) became head of a large printing firm but during the last thirty years of his life took little active part in its management. He was an active botanist and horticulturist, and was the first secretary of both the Caledonian Horticultural Society and the Wernerian Natural History Society. He was the author of a number of books and articles on horticultural subjects, and the gardens at his residence were always open to visitors."
