        Die Waffenbahre (pp.189-224, 2 gefalt. Taf.).

      - Journ. Chir. Augenh., 6/2 - Hrsg. v. Graefe & Walther. - Berlin, im Verlag von G. Reimer, 1824, 8°, pp.197-378, 2 gefalt. Kupferstichtafeln, orig. Broschur in feinem Pappband im Stil d.Zt. Erstdruck! - Graefe's Waffenbahre, ist eine aus Infanterie Gewehren, aus dem Lederzeuge und den Mänteln der Soldaten zusammengesetzte, zum Fortschaffen Schwerverwundeter vom Schlachtfelde bestimmte Tragbahre. . - - Carl Ferdinand von Graefc hatte in dem Befreiungskriege 1813 - 1815, an dem er als dirigirendcr Divisions- Generalchirurgus Theil genommen, die Erfahrung gemacht, dals die bisherigen Transportmittel für Schwerverwundete aus der Schlachtlinie noch immer unzureichend wären und bemühte sich dieselben durch andere zu ersetzen, welche ihrem Zwecke besser entsprächen, was ihm auch vollkommen gelang. Er kam nämlich auf den Gedanken, daß man eine Anzahl von Soldaten im Voraus zum Fortschaffen der Blessierten bestimmen und ausrüsten könne, welche nicht etwa Abteilungen bilden, sondern unter die Combattanten verteilt werden sollten, deren Schießgewehre so eingerichtet sind, daß sie die Tragstangen bilden, welche in Gurte gesteckt, die sich an den Mänteln vorfinden, mit denselben eine Tragbahre abgeben, die allen Erfordernissen entspricht. Zur Erleichterung des Tragens dieser Bahre sind an dem Lederzeuge der Soldaten Carabinerhaken angebracht, welche teils an das Gewehrbajonett, teils an Tücher befestigt werden, die sich an den Kolben der Flinten befinden. Eine genaue Beschreibung der so leicht zusammenzusetzenden Waffenbahre wovon 3 bis 4 auf 100 Mann kommen, hat uns v. Graefe selbst geliefert; auch finden wir eine bildliche Darstellung derselben in dessen und Walther' Journ. Bd. 6. pag. 189. Taf. II.und Il. - - Durch diese Einrichtung wird den Mängeln und Nachtheilen der frühem derartigen Anstalten auf eine zweckmäßige und leicht ausführbare Weise abgeholfen; es wird nicht nöthig seyn dem Heere Combattanten zu entziehen, den Troß der Armee zu vermehren, man kann nicht in Verlegenheit gerathen, Schwerblessirte liegen lassen zu müssen, da es durch Graefe's Waffenbahre möglich ist, an jeder Stelle des Gefechtes Tragbahren haben zu können; ferner verursacht diese Einrichtung nicht den großen Kostenaufwand wie die Brancardiercompagnieen, und nach einer siegreich beendigten Schlacht kann man durch Waffenbahrenträger in Massen schnell die Blessirten vom Schlachtfelde nach den Sammelplätzen bringen, etc." Encyclopädisches Wörterbuch der medicinischen Wissenschaften.Hrsg. v. C,F. Gräfe, Chr. W. v. Hufeland, et al., Bd. 15, pp.114-115 - - "Gelänge es mir", schliesst Graefe den einleitenden ersten Theil, "der ich mehrmals Zeuge war, wie die Qualen der Verwundeten durch Mangel an Tragegeräthen gesteigert, wie so viele Leben auf diese Weise geopfert wurden, gelänge es mir, durch den gemachten Vorschlag für sichere Rettung schwer Verwundeter im künftigen Kriege mit beizutragen, so wäre einer meiner heissesten Wünsche erfüllt." - - "Erwägt man, schliesst Graefe seine Schrift, welche Vortheile durch einen solchen, jegliche Erschütterung entfernenden Transport gewonnen werden, so ist es offenbar, dass die Einführung der Waffenbahre den Verwundeten zur grössten Wohlthat und dem Staate, durch Erhaltung ausgezeichneter Krieger, zum erheblichen Nutzen gereichen dürfte." - - siehe - Kriegschirurgen und Feldärzte der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts (1795-1848). Von Dr. Bock, und Dr. Hasenknopf. Belin 1901 [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Composition de la tête osseuse de l'homme et des animaux. [Suivi de] Sur l'adgustal, l'un des os de la voûte palatine

      (Paris, Annales des sciences naturelles), (1824). pagination multiple, une planche et un tableau, les deux dépliants reproduits en lithographie percaline prune à la bradel, dos lisse, titre doré en long (1824), (1824), in - 8, pagination multiple, une planche et un tableau, les deux dépliants reproduits en lithographie, percaline prune à la bradel, dos lisse, titre doré en long, Édition originale, sous forme d'extraits, de ce rare résumé des travaux de Saint - Hilaire sur le crâne ; ils proviennent du tome III des Annales des sciences naturelles (1824). La « Composition de la tête osseuse de l'homme et des animaux » fera l'objet d'un tiré à part destiné à la vente en librairie (Tastu). Geoffroy - Saint - Hilaire y étudie la « composition de la tête osseuse, montre le crâne formé de sept vertèbres, fait l'historique des travaux publiés sur le même sujet, et donne la concordance de sa nomenclature et de ses déterminations avec celles de Cuvier ». (« Vie, travaux et doctrine scientifique d'Étienne Geoffroy Saint - Hilaire » par son fils Isidore, p. 447). L'exposé s'accompagne d'un tableau synoptique et d'une planche détaillant la composition de la tête osseuse du crocodile, d'après un crâne retiré d'une momie trouvée par Geoffroy - Saint - Hilaire dans les catacombes de Thèbes en Égypte ; c'est à partir de cette découverte que l'auteur a décrit une nouvelle et petite espèce vivant dans le Nil, le crocodylus suchus (planches n° 9 et 16 de l'Atlas). L'exposé sur l'adgustal, pages 491 à 506 ; peut figurer comme un "appendice" à l'article précédent. En 1824, Geoffroy - Saint - Hilaire (1772 - 1844) a derrière lui une carrière déjà importante ; il a acquis la célébrité en 1818 avec la parution de la « Philosophie anatomique » et a énoncé de nombreux principes majeurs, avant de s'intéresser aux pièces paléontologiques et à la description des fossiles. À partir de 1825, il s'engage, contre son confrère et ami Cuvier dans la controverse dite « des crocodiles de Caen » qui le conduira à se prononcer en faveur des thèses transformistes. Exemplaire provenant de la bibliothèque de l'ethnologue et anthropologue Ernest - Théodore Hamy (1842 - 1908), avec sa jolie étiquette ex - libris à l'orang - outan, reproduction de la belle gravure de l'Homo sylvestris parue dans les Observationum medicarum de Nicolas Tulp en 1641.

Sobre la fuerza que se le ha hecho y nulidad que se ha cometido elevando este juicio á la Córte Suprema de Justicia sin declararse previamente si la naturaleza de esta causa admite recursos de nulidad y si la Suprema Córte es tribunal competente para conocer de esta numerica nulidad.

A number of early manuscript corrections in ink. 38 pp., (1 blank l.). *** FIRST and ONLY EDITION. Mackenzie was thrashing out a legal dispute (summarized on pp. 29-34) with Nicolas Peña regarding the @Juana Gordon. Here Mackenzie (represented by the British consul) argues that by appealing the Supreme Director's decision to Chile's highest court, Peña has violated Mackenzie's legal guarantees as a British citizen.The earliest references to the case (per OCLC) are 1824, with this work and Peña's @Memoria en que el ciudadano Nicolas Rodriguez Peña justifica sus derechos en la causa con D. Paulino Makensi sobre la cobranza del valor del carganento @[sic] y Buque Juana Gordon. The case dragged on at least until 1838, but no item listed in OCLC is earlier than this one of late 1824.Nicolás Rodríguez Peña, Mackenzie's opponent, was a hero of the Argentine independence movement: Rodriguez Peña square in Buenos Aires is named after him. After the Battle of Chacabuco in 1817, he went into self-imposed exile in Santiago, where he remained until his death in 1853.*** Briseño I, 200. Not located in CCPBE. Not located in Rebiun.

        Antiquarian Researches: Comprising A History of the Indian Wars in the Country Bordering Connecticut River and Parts Adjacent, and Other Interesting Events, From the First Landing of the Pilgrims, to the Conquest of Canada by the English, in 1760.

      Greenfield, Mass: Ansel Phelps 1824 - Bound in contemporary 1/2 leather over marbled boards. Hardcover. Solid binding. Worn cover. Internally a good copy with scattered foxing. xii, 312 pages, [1] folded leaf of plates : illustrations ; 22 cm. With additional pictorial tp. The fold-out plate is an engraving of only house in Deerfield to escape destruction by an Indian raid in 1706. A copy of fascinating article on the book from the 1825 North American Review is included: "Hoyt informs us.that he had access to several documents, which had not been published, and which contained many interesting particulars, respecting Indian warfare on the Connecticut river. The rich country along the banks of that river was early settled, and the settlements in those regions were for a long time frontier posts. Being so far separated by wilderness from the colonies on the sea coast, they were exposed to perpetual depredations from hostile Indians; murders were often committed, houses burnt, storehouses and provisions destroyed.which the ingenuity and cruelty of a savage enemy could inflict. ?they forgot that they were themselves intruders in the land, and that the soil stained by the blood of their battles was the Indians' property, which the laws of nature and of right called on them to defend. We do not mean to say, that the settlers were always the aggressors, or that they could have avoided occasional wars; indeed, we will not pretend to say what they might or might not have done; but we hold it to be a truth fully established by all history, that the course which they actually pursued was oftentimes very unjustifiable, and that in their intercourse with the natives they were uniformly guided by a policy, which indicated very little knowledge of the first principles of human nature, or regard for the rights and welfare of the Indians." The North American Review Vol. 21, No. 48 (Jul., 1825), pp. 234-237. Quite prescient for 1825. Howes H746; Sabin 33402.

He was "a clear, methodic, analytic spirit who opposed all scholastic eccentricity and fanaticism, edited the works of Laennec, joined hands with Louis in his propaganda against blood- letting, favored cold baths in typhoid and other fevers, and is to be especially remembered as the first to urge a chemical examination of the blood in morbid conditions. His Clinique medicale (1829-33) was the first work of the kind made famous by Trousseau, Dieulafoy, and others." Garrison, History of medicine, p. 415. Garbriel Andral's Essai d'hematologie pathologique (Paris, 1843) was the first monograph on haematology. He established analysis of the blood on the basis of exact knowledge of the blood components. He analyzed the blood fibrin and albumin. He recognized several forms of anemia, including that due to lead poisoning. See: Garrison and Morton 3060.

        Die wichtigsten neuern Land- und Seereisen. Für die Jugend und andere Leser bearbeitet. 16 in 15 Bänden.

      - Leipzig, Fleischer, 1824-31. 8vo. Mit zus. 33 teils gefalteten Kupfertafeln u. 17 (von 18) gefalteten Kupferkarten. 10 Halbleder d. Zeit in 5 Einband-Varianten, 1 Pappband d. Zeit u. 4 Or.-Broschuren (6 Bände beschabt u. bestoßen, die Broschuren mit Stempel auf Vorderdeckel u. kleinen Läsuren). Mischexemplar: Band 5, 6 und 12-16 in erster Ausgabe (auf besserem Papier), Band 1-4 und 7-11 in der neuen, wohlfeilen Ausgabe. - Der Pädagoge Wilhelm Harnisch hat sich bei der Gestaltung der Reihe über wichtige Forschungsreisen seit 1780 zwar auf den "seeligen Campe" berufen, fand aber, dieser habe den jungen Lesern zu sehr "vorgedacht". Harnisch wollte jedoch das eigenständige Denken fördern. Auch versuchte er sich so treu wie möglich an die Worte der Reisenden zu halten, um nicht "dem schönen Ausdrucke (die) Wahrheit aufzuopfern". Und um dem Leser ein "Rundgemälde (Panorama)" der Welt (das heißt der außereuropäischen Erdteile) zu liefern, hat Harnisch sein "Erdgemälde" nicht nur mit Kapiteln über das Natur- und Völkerleben, sondern auch mit Berichten über Sitten, Glauben, Wissenschaften und Künste versehen. Die Karten entwarf der Autor selbst. - Unter den geschilderten Reisen sind u.a. Humboldts Südamerika-Reise, die Brasilien-Reise des Prinzen Maximilian zu Wied-Neuwied, die Weltreisen von Krusenstern und Langsdorf, Südseereisen von Bligh, Oxley und Mariner, Forschungsreisen in Asien durch Staunton, Ellis, Barrow, Symes, Woodard, Fahrten in Afrika von Minutoli, Ali Bei, Denham und Clapperton, Mungo Park, Cochelet; auch der Schiffbruch der "Medusa" wird behandelt. - Mit Registern der bereisten Weltteile und der Reisenden. - Auf den Kupfertafeln sind u.a. die Schwefelberge von Krisuvik, die Niagarafälle, eine südamerikanische Lederbrücke, der Tschimborasso, der Vulkan von Kirauea, ein Nordgrönländer, Indianer, Japaner, Koreaner, ein Kamelartillerist, Berber von der Insel Elephantine, ein Buschmann und ein tätowierter Nukahiwer zu sehen. - Ohne die Karte "Der nördliche Teil von Südamerika" in Band 15. - Vgl. Engelmann 107; Wegehaupt 877. - Die meisten Bände gering, einige stärker stockfleckig. Band 14 mehrfach gestempelt, Karte feuchtfleckig u. mit größeren Einrissen. Karte in Band 15 fehlt, die meisten Bände ohne Einzeltitel, einige ohne Reihentitel. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        A Flora of North America, illustrated by coloured figures drawn from nature

      Vol. I: M. Carey & Sons; Vol. II & III: H.C. Carey & I. Lea, Philadelphia 1824 - (10 13/16 x 8 3/8 inches). 106 uncoloured engraved plates (1 folding), from drawings by the author, by Cornelius Tiebout (29), G.B. Ellis (32), F. Kearney (23), J. Boyd (7), J. Drayton (6), C. Goodman (6), Jacob J. Plocher (2), and J.L. Frederick (1). (Plate 80 in vol.II with contemporary replacement of inner margin. Contemporary red half morocco over green/blue paper-covered boards, the flat spines divided into five compartments by double gilt fillets, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments. Provenance: Owen Mason (?of Rhode Island, 1796-1873, ownership inscriptions dated 1841 noting a purchase price of $8.00) Very rare uncoloured issue of an important American flora, "magnificently illustrated" (DAB) with "Plates [that] are clear, soft and lovely" (Bennett). The work includes the first successful use of stipple-engraving in the United States. This set includes the rare 'To Subscribers' leaf in Volume II. In addition to its significance as a botanical work, Barton's Flora. is also one of the most important early colour plate books entirely produced in the United States. "The plates were made by [among others] Cornelius Tiebout, the first really skilled engraver born in the United States, although he trained in London for two years in the 1790's to perfect his technique" (Reese). This uncoloured issue is particularly interesting as Barton states in the advertisement to the first volume that some of the "plates are printed in colour" - none of the plates in the present volume show any signs of colour and are therefore a variant issue of those used in the coloured version, and not merely plates that were not hand-coloured in this country. These may constitute early experimental issues of the plates - produced before the combination of colour-printing and hand-colouring was arrived at. The text gives details of each species, its Latin binomial, common name, and class and order according to the Linnaean system, followed by interesting information about the history of the discovery of the species and details about its geographical range. The present set is particularly desirable as it includes the rare "To Subscribers" leaf occasionally found in the second volume, it is here bound between pp. 42 and 43. It was issued as a pair to pp. 41/42 but is not included in the pagination and was designed to be discarded. Like many other works of its day, Barton's book was originally issued in parts, with the first parts appearing in 1820 and the final ones in 1824, hence the dates given above. Barton, the nephew of Benjamin Smith Barton, was appointed a naval surgeon in 1809 and remained on the Navy's list throughout his life (he was buried with full military honours in Philadelphia in 1856). "In 1815 Barton was chosen professor of botany at the University of Pennsylvania, charming many with his light-hearted herborizing trips along the Schuykill and his lectures which were, contrary to bookish times, demonstrated in his well-stocked conservatory" (DAB). His botanical publications, which appeared over a relatively short span of nine years, began with his Flora Philadelphicae prodromus (1815) and culminated with the present work (1820-24) and his Vegetable materia medica of the United States (1817-19).

Imposes penalties for smuggling tobacco, foreign liquors, tea, and playing cards. Diego Portales (1793-1837), born into a prominent merchant family in Santiago, established Portales Céa y Compañía in 1821, with branches in Valparaiso and Lima. The company was granted a monopoly (@estanco) on trade in tobacco, tea, liquor, and playing cards, in return for which they serviced Chile's foreign debt. Unfortunately the government was unable effectively to control such trade, and the company went bankrupt. Its memory lingered in the name of Portales's conservative followers, known as @estanqueros.In the 1830s, Portales, as leader of the conservatives and a proponent of a strong central government, was the power behind the president. Since he was largely responsible for the Chilean Constitution of 1833, his political beliefs remained influential for another century.*** Not located in Briseño. Not located in CCPBE.

        IN CONGRESS JULY 4th, 1776. THE UNANIMOUS DECLARATION OF THE THIRTEEN UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.

      [Np, but Hartford, Ct.]: Eleazer Huntington, [ca. 1820-1824]. - Engraved broadside, 24 x 19 1/2 inches, printed on paper. A near fine copy. The Declaration of Independence, the foundation document of the United States, has been printed myriad times since its original publication in 1776. At first as broadsides, then as an essential addition to any volume of laws, it was from the beginning a basic work in the American canon. The present document is one of the earliest broadside reproductions of the Declaration, done within a few years of the first broadside republications. In the period following the War of 1812, Americans began to look back, for the first time with historical perspective, on the era of the founding of the country. The republic was now forty years old, and the generation of the American Revolution, including the signers of the Declaration, was dropping away. With nostalgia and curiosity, many Americans began to examine the details of the nation's founding. Among other things, such documents as the debates of the Constitutional Convention were published for the first time. It seems extraordinary that the Declaration of Independence, as created, was unknown to Americans, when the text was so central to the national ego. Several entrepreneurs set out to bridge this gap by printing reproductions of the document. The first to do so was a writing master named Benjamin Owen Tyler, who created a calligraphic version of the Declaration and published it in 1818, recreating exactly the signatures of the signers as they appeared on the original. Three other broadside printings of the Declaration were issued in 1818 and 1819, each containing ornamental borders or illustrations. These were followed in the early 1820s by the present printing by Hartford engraver and penmanship author Eleazer Huntington. Huntington followed Tyler's example by creating a calligraphic facsimile of the Declaration, but stripped out the ornaments and illustrations that had been added by previous publishers, returning the document to the simple title and text of the original, and providing the signatures of the signers in exact facsimile. According to John Bidwell's list, this is the sixth broadside reproduction of the Declaration of Independence. Bidwell locates only three copies of the Huntington printing of the Declaration, at the Huntington Library, Massachusetts Historical Society, and American Antiquarian Society. Rare, attractive, and important. John Bidwell, "American History in Image and Text" in PROCEEDINGS OF THE AMERICAN ANTIQUARIAN SOCIETY, 1988, Vol. 98, pp.247-302 (also issued as a separate pamphlet by AAS), item 6.

M. pl. coeva con molte mancanze ai dorsi. Testo di grande completezza e ricchezza di informazioni, anche in riferimento ad argomenti di ordine penale. La parte iconografica e' invece caratterizzata da un certo compiacimento gotico nell?illustrare i piu' efferati martiri. Tutte le voci sono corredate di riferimenti storici ed esempi. Si tratta di uno dei piu' completi cataloghi delle efferatezze compiute dall?uomo sull'uomo, qui descritte con il maniacale dettaglio del sadico, giustificato dal rigore delle leggi. ITA

        Archive of material related to Daniel Dunscomb Bradford, of New York, New York, Consul at Paris, France, and a great-grandson of William Bradford, Pennsylvania's first printer, 1824-1838

      Hardcover. Very Good. The archive includes: 16 letters, 45 manuscript pages, dated 1824-1838, with 11 manuscript pages of documents and papers, dated 1827-1836, plus 162 manuscript page genealogy book of the Bradford family, dated 1825; and a 76 page manuscript "Friendship Book" of Mary Ann Rodgers Bradford, c. 1828-1838. Daniel Dunscomb Bradford (1808-1837) Daniel Dunscomb Bradford was born on 14 May 1808, the son of Jacob Bradford (1771-1816) and Elisa Dunscomb, of New York City. He was baptized at Trinity Church, New York City. Daniel was the second great grandson of William Bradford (1658-1752), the first printer in Pennsylvania, and also the printer of the first book and newspaper in New York City. Daniel's father was first cousin to William Bradford (1755-1795), the second Attorney General of the United States (1794-1795). His grandfather Cornelius Bradford was the brother of the Revolutionary War printer William Bradford (1791-1791), the printer for the first Continental Congress. Daniel was one of five children, the other four being: Margaret D., Cornelius (died young), Cornelius (second of this name), and David Dickson. At the age of 19, Daniel, or "Dunscomb" as he was called, commenced studying law and was admitted to the practice of law in 1831. He sailed for Europe after visiting England and proceeded to France, where he was appointed the American Vice-Consul at Paris, which office he held until his death, in Paris, on 5 December 1837 at the age of thirty years old. While in Paris as Consul, Dunscomb was one of two non-family members present during the burial of General Lafayette in 1834. Bradford was also appointed the secretary of a committee of Americans in Paris who organized an appropriate expression of sorrow by the American people for Lafayette's death. David Dickson Bradford (1806-?), brother of Daniel Dunscomb, married Mary Ann Rogers, daughter of Dr. George Rogers of New York City, by whom he had at least three children: Margaret Gage, George Rogers, and Mary Elizabeth. David Dickson Bradford became a seaman, and eventually captain of his own vessel. Correspondence: 11 letters (34 pp.) of Daniel Dunscomb Bradford, written to his brother, sea captain David Dickson Bradford, and his sister-in-law Mary Ann Bradford, dated New York and Paris, 29 October 1828 - 6 April 1836. One of the letters is incomplete, and two others are torn, with loss of text, with general browning, and wear. These letters mainly concern family matters, though bigger issues do intrude. In one letter (2 Jan. 1830), Dunscomb breaks the news of Cornelius Bradford's death in Jerusalem, a later letter congratulates Dickson on his forthcoming marriage, another discusses the welfare of their mother, another writes of the family fortune, or rather the lack thereof, and their careers and aspirations such as sea-captain employment possibilities for Dickson, etc. Dunscomb Bradford enjoyed writing on such subjects as how to behave as a gentleman and how to be happy in love and marriage. Dunscomb Bradford took his brother Cornelius Bradford's place as Consul in Paris on the latter's death in August 1830. Dunscomb too died young, on 5 December 1837, and was buried in Pére Lachaise. 5 miscellaneous letters (11 pp.) include: 1 letter of Capt. E.M. Donaldson to David Dickson Bradford, dated Philadelphia 22 May 1824, discussing travel plans for "Mrs. Hall" and "the children." 1 letter copy of David Dickson Bradford to his brother Dunscomb Bradford, dated New York 24 February 1833; 1 letter of David Dickson Bradford to his wife Mary dated 5 March 1834. 2 letters of Robert Dumont to David Dickson Bradford, dated New York 3 Sept. 1836 and 16 Jan. 1838, the latter written at the request of Bradford's mother, informing Dickson of the death of his brother Dunscomb in Paris. The correspondence generally soiled, browned, and worn. Some sheets torn at wax seals, etc. But it is in generally good legible con

      Seconda Edizione con l'Aggiunta di Macchine posteriori e premesse le Notizie storiche della Vita e delle Opere dello stesso Zabaglia. Compilate...dell'Avvocato Filippo Maria Renazzi. Finely engraved frontis. port. of Zabaglia (margins a little foxed), engraved vignettes on Italian & Latin titles, a large engraved headpiece, & 62 fine engraved plates (ten are folding). 4 p.l., xxix, [1], 46, [4], 48 pp. Text in both Italian and Latin. Large folio (505 x 375 mm.), fine Roman green sheep maroquiné with covers richly gilt in a panel design (a few scuff marks & defects), flat spine richly gilt (ends of spine a little worn), probably bound by the "Pope Gregory XVI binder." Rome: C. Puccinelli, 1824. Second edition, with important additions, of this finely illustrated engineering book. The first edition appeared in 1743. Zabaglia (1664-1750), "master mason of the Fabric of St. Peter's," was one of the foremost engineers and mechanics of his time. He was responsible for the maintenance of St. Peter's in Rome and designed the scaffolding and other devices used for its decoration and repair. The scaffolds -- both ground and suspension -- were extraordinary temporary structures designed to support, at the great heights of the basilica, the workers, equipment, materials, and machines necessary for restoration works, mosaic and painting decorations, the installation of statues, as well as for placing the iron hoops in the dome to stabilize cracks. Zabaglia made important advances in the technique used to graft and join wooden beams to assemble very large scaffolds and machines. He also founded a "School of Practical Mechanics." The handsome plates in this work depict Zabaglia's inventions including hoists, lifting machines, various kinds of scaffolds, machinery, tools, mosaics, artists at work, men working in a quarry, the transportation of marble and stone, the transportation and lifting of the Vatican obelisk by Fontana in the late 16th century, Zabaglia's transportation of the great obelisk of Augustus, etc. Our edition is enriched by eight new plates depicting the scaffolds made by Zabaglia's most skillful pupils, including Pietro Albertini and Angelo Paraccini. Added is a biography of Zabaglia with a detailed account of his other engineering achievements. A most handsome copy, finely bound. ❧ Dibner, Moving the Obelisks (1991). For the binder , see Cat. della Mostra Legature papali da Eugenio IV a Paolo VI (Rome: 1977), no. 284, tav. 204. Riccardi II, 642-"Bellissima...Non è noto chi abbia compilata quest'opera nella quale trovansi giudiziosi congegni meccanici per la costruzione dei fabbricati, immaginati dal Zabaglia, ma certo non descritti da lui, che era illetterato." .
