Wie schon zur selben Zeit Ludwig Tieck, so hatte damals auch Lüttichau, der neuernannte Generaldirektor des Königlichen Hoftheaters in Dresden, mit Wolff Kontakt aufgenommen und ihm die "Leitung des Artistischen" der Dresdner Bühne, später dann auch die der Regie, angeboten.

        Rosa Gallica Pontiana

      Firmin Didot], [Paris 1824 - More than with any other painter, Redouté's flowers are alive, and always shown at the ephemeral moment of their greatest beauty. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full-time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in Les Roses from which this work comes. Redouté together with Claude-Antoine Thory, an ardent botanist and collector of roses, have together in Les Roses produced a work not only of great artistic merit, but also an invaluable scientific record as well. `Redouté and Thory knew, described and figured almost all the important roses known in their day. Included were many of the key ancestors of our present-day roses. The plates in Les Roses have artistic value, botanical and documentary value, both for the species and cultivars still surviving and for those that have disappeared' (Gisele de la Roche). The roses used as specimens for the work were taken from the collections of Thory, the Malmaison gardens, and from other collections around Paris. Many of the flowers were novelties in Redouté's time, and a number were dedicated to the memory of his friends and acquaintances, such as l'Héritier de Brutelle and Ventenat. Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 128; cf. Nissen BBI 1599; cf. Pritzel 7455; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8748. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Trimmed within platemark top and sides, not affecting image or titles.

        Delectus Sententiarum Graecarum, usum tironum accommodatus.

      Valpy, London 1824 - Duodecimo, owner's inscription on title-page and front free endpaper; some wear and loss, but a good copy in original plain roan binding. Early Australian schoolbook. A charming relic of early Australian education. This classical Greek textbook in its seventh edition, is in its original colonial binding and was originally owned by William Howe, member of a prominent Australian family. It is inscribed in ink "William Howe, King's School Parramatta March 15th 1852". William Howe senior arrived in New South Wales in 1816, and by 1820 was a magistrate. He had eight sons and two daughters. The King's School was founded in 1832 for the children of the colonial elite. It was customary for the young to receive a classical education that included Latin and Greek, and this text was obviously still in use almost thirty years after publication.

        De la moelle épinière et de ses maladies.

      Paris, Crevot, 1824. - In-8, XII, 404 pp., 2 pl. dépl. h.t., demi-veau rouge de l¿époque, dos lisse orné, bel exemplaire. Edition originale de l¿un des premiers ouvrages de neurologie moderne, resté classique, et du premier traité consacré à la moelle épinière. Ollivier avait déjà consacré sa thèse à l¿anatomie et aux vices de conformation de la moelle. Il étudie ici l¿anatomie, la physiologie et la pathologie de la moelle, sans l¿aide du microscope. Les observations anatomo-cliniques furent recueillies dans les services de Laennec et de Pinel. Le chapitre sur les malformations congénitales est dans l¿ensemble remarquable. Les conséquences des atteintes médullaires d¿origine traumatique sont bien décrites. Ollivier rapporte dans cet ouvrage la première observation anatomo-clinique de syringomyélie (obs. XXXVIII, pp. 275-285), décrivant à l¿autopsie une « cavité » à l¿intérieur de la moelle (il n¿utilisera la dénomination de « syringomyélie » que dans la 3ème édition de ce traité, et le lien de causalité entre la syringomyélie et une malformation de la charnière cervico-occipitale ne sera établi qu¿à la fin du 19e siècle). On crédite aussi Ollivier de la probable première description clinique de sclérose en plaques rapportée dans l¿observation d¿un patient qu¿il pensait atteint d¿une maladie infectieuse (obs. LI, pp. 342-347). ¿This is the best documented early account of what was probably multiple sclerosis that I have encountered.¿ (Spillane). Au-delà de ces découvertes, Ollivier montre que les lésions médullaires ne sont pas exceptionnelles et qu¿il importe de les rechercher et de les étudier. Charles Prosper Ollivier d¿Angers (1796-1845), né à Angers, étudia la médecine à Paris. Il se consacra d¿abord à des recherches anatomiques et pathologiques sur la moelle épinière, puis devint un médecin légiste réputé, soutenu par Orfila. Il fut membre de l¿Académie de médecine. P.

        Mes souvenirs de 1814 et 1815.

      Paris, Eymery 1824 - in-8, II-279 pp., demi-basane rouge maroquinée, dos lisse, filets dorés (reliure de l'époque). Tulard, 1212 : "L'auteur de ces souvenirs serait Reboul, ancien administrateur dans l'Apennin. Anecdotes sur l'Italie napoléonienne et l'île d'Elbe." Des notes manuscrites laissent supposer que cet ouvrage a appartenu à l'auteur, ou a été corrigé par l'auteur. On y trouve notamment tous les noms des personnages anonymes qui sont dans le texte imprimé, symbolisés par un astérisque. En réalité, cet exemplaire comporte les mêmes corrections et ajouts manuscrits que l'exemplaire qui igurait dans la bibliothèque du baron Charles d'Huart. Nous pensions qu'il s'agissait d'un exemplaire d'épreuves. L'existence d'un second exemplaire avec les mêmes ajouts nous permet maintenant de penser qu'il s'agit d'un premier tirage dont un certain nombre d'exemplaires furent corrigé.

        Autograph letter signed to Samuel H. Christie

      Paris 1824 - Ampère, André Marie (1775-1836). Autograph letter signed to [Samuel Hunter] Christie (1784-1865). Paris, 14 July 1824. 1 page. 225 x 175 mm. Light marginal staining, lacuna from ink oxidation affecting one word. From Ampère, founder of the science of electrodynamics, to British mathematician and physicist Samuel Hunter Christie, who performed important research on terrestrial and other forms of magnetism:"Depuis que vous m'avez fait l'honneur de m'envoyer votre excellent mémoire sur le sujet de physique sur lequel nous travaillons particulièrement tous deux, je désirais vivement trouver une occasion pour vous envoyer un des 3 ou 4 exemplaires qui me reste de mon ouvrage sur ce sujet dont l'édition est épuisée. . . .Je joins à mon recueil une petite brochure qui en est extraite et qui est l'exposé rapide de tous les faits découverts relativement à l'électricité dynamique."[Ever since you did me the honor of sending me your excellent memoir on the subject of physics on which we are both particularly working, I have wanted very much to find an occasion to send you one of my 3 or 4 remaining copies of my work on this subject, which is out of print. . . . I add to my work a small pamphlet extracted from it, which is a brief summary of all the discoveries relating to electrodynamics.]The "ouvrage" Ampère referred to here was his Recueil d'observations électro-dynamiques (1823), representing "the most complete single summary of his accomplishments to that date" (Hofmann, p. 321); the work included observations on terrestrial magnetism. The "petite brochure" was Ampère's Précis de la théorie des phénomènes électro-dynamiques pour servir de supplément au "Recueil d'observations électro-dynamiques" (1824). Ampère, whose scientific creativity far exceeded his powers of organization, was in the habit of issuing numerous revisions, additions and explanations to his previously published works; the Précis is an example of this practice. Ampère sent these two publications to Christie via his friend Baron Jean-Frédéric Maurice (1775-1851), a Swiss-born mathematician and astronomer.Samuel Hunter Christie, Ampère's correspondent, is best known for inventing a forerunner of the "Wheatstone bridge" method for comparing the resistances of wires of different thicknesses, published in the Philosophical Transactions in 1833. At the time of Ampère's letter Christie had published two works, Observations on Magnetic Attractions (1821) and On the Diurnal Deviations of the Horizontal Needle when under the Influence of Magnets (1823). We do not know which one of these he presented to Ampère. Hofmann, André-Marie Ampère (1995). [Attributes: Signed Copy; Soft Cover]

        Lengthy autograph signed letter regarding the Wesleyan mission to Tonga and internal dissent in the Church at Sydney

      Parramatta: 26 January, 1824. Bifolium sheet, four pages measuring 330 x 203 mm., laid paper watermarked 1815; folded to letter size, addressed and postmarked, very good condition. First Wesleyan missionary to Tonga. Intriguing personal letter from convict chaplain and South Seas missionary Walter Lawry written and signed at Parramatta in 1824. Although clearly written as an official request, this letter to the Wesleyan general committee in London is unsually candid, as Lawry pleads his case to leave New South Wales and return to England. Walter Lawry (1793-1859) is a significant figure in the early history of Pacific missionary activity. He was appointed chaplain to the convict transport {i Lady Castlereagh }which arrived in May 1818. Lawry was soon stationed in Parramatta where he married and constructed the first church in the region. In 1822 he was appointed missionary to the Friendly Islands (Tonga group) and purchased a vessel named the {i St. Michael }for this purpose. After a short stay in New Zealand the {i St. Michael }sailed to Tonga, but here the mission met with little success due to the enduring memory of disreputable Europeans (including an escaped convict from Botany Bay) that prejudiced the islanders against Lawry's evangelism (ADB). Given his travails, the present letter is most interesting because in it Lawry openly discusses his dissatisfaction with New South Wales, writing 'I am unhappy and greatly troubled'. He gives several reasons for returning to England, mostly relating to acrimony between himself and the Wesleyan general committee. These ongoing disputes soured Lawry's experiences in the colony, lamenting 'My reputation in the eyes of my revered brethren has been blasted by the breath of distraction and misrepresentation, their confidence in me is withdrawn, and my remonstrance's are without weight.' It appears that years of service in the South Seas and Australia financially ruined Lawry, who constructed the church at Parramatta at his personal expense for the considerable cost of £300. On a brighter note, Lawry draws upon his considerable experience in the Pacific to offer guidance on 'those places in the South Seas where you have thought proper to establish missions, and I hope I might be able to furnish the society with such information on the missions to the colony, to the Aborigines of New Zealand… as would be considered of no small importance'. On a more personal note, Lawry insists that he must return to visit his ageing parents, calling upon a promise he made them to return within six years. However, the committee denied Lawry's impassioned request and appointed him to service in Van Diemen's Land. He disregarded this order and sailed for England in 1825. Surprisingly, Lawry mended relations with the Church and after many years of ministry in England was appointed superintendent of the New Zealand missions in 1843. Lawry spent his final years in Parramatta, where he died in 1859.

The plates include images of nematodes, acanthocephalans, trematoda (flukes), cestoidea (tapeworms) and cystica (taenia). [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Maps and plates are not included in pagination, whereas all tables are. Collated, complete and tightly bound. Stain to spine leather, rubbing to boards, light offset and browning to some foldout maps and views, occasional foxing, discoloration and slight wave to pages. Crack in front hinge near the binders twine used to sew down front endpaper - as per book binding methods of the time where ".until the early years of the nineteenth century all endpapers, were sewn on, and never merely tipped on with paste as they sometimes are today." [Middleton, 4th edition, p. 108-111]. Sent by the Admiralty to search for a passage along the west coast of Foxe Basin, Parry sailed north of Southampton Island instead of south, the route preferred by previous navigators, and thus became the first to sail through Frozen Strait and confirmed Middleton's discovery of Repulse Bay. In late Aug. having found no passage through Repulse Bay, he explored the coast northward, sailing as far as Ross Bay. In Feb. 1822, Eskimos visited their winter quarters on Winter Island and spent much of the winter in the expedition's company, enabling Parry and his men to make detailed observations on their customs and language. After leaving their winter quarters, they explored farther north equipped with Eskimo maps (ESKIMAUX CHART No 1, No 2 & No 3, facing p. 197, 198 and 252) and found the entrance to Fury and Hecla Strait. Ice prevented their passing through it, but overland journeys confirmed that it led westward to a sea. Parry returned to winter quarters and attempted to sail through Fury and Hecla Strait the following summer. Unsuccessful in this attempt, and fearing scurvy, he then returned home. Ref.

Throughout the whole of this work, the characteristics of the Eskimaux, and incidents of intercourse with them, absorb the attention of the writer. The work is a treatise on aboriginal life rather than a narrative of scientific discoveries. Many of the plates, from drawings by Capt. Lyon, depict the Eskimaux, in costume, at work and play, hunting and fishing, singly and in family or social groups, children at play and are among the most fascinating and charming of their kind." - from a typed note found inside the book.

K. beschäftigte sich mit dem animalischen Magnetismus von Franz Anton Mesmer, später wandte er sich zunehmend dem Übersinnlichen sowie den 'Nachtseiten' der menschlichen Natur zu. Ab 1826 behandelte er die als Seherin von Prevorst bekannt gewordene Friederike Hauffe, bei der Somnambulismus diagnostiziert wurde. Bei deren Behandlung wendete er die Methoden der Magnetotherapie von Mesmer an. Im Sinne der romantischen Naturphilosophie waren Ärzte und Naturforscher im frühen 19. Jahrhundert vor allem von den psychischen Phänomenen des 'Somnambulismus' fasziniert, manche Somnambulen wurden deshalb fast wie Heilige verehrt. Auch an Kerners tiefer Ehrfurcht vor seiner Patientin Friederike Hauffe bestehen keine Zweifel.

        Histoire du Bas-Empire

      36 - Paris - De L'Imprimerie de Firmin Didot 1824 - A rare fascinating collection of worksexploring the history of the later Roman Empire. New edition written in French. The decline of the Roman Empire refers to the gradual societal collapse of the Western Roman Empire. Many theories of causality prevail, but most concern the disintegration of political, economic, military, and other social institutions, in tandem with foreign invasions and usurpers from within the empire. Volume I focuses on Constantine the Great, Constantine I or Saint Constantine, whowas Roman Emperor from 306 to 337. Well known for being the first Roman emperor to convert to Christianity, Constantine and co-Emperor Licinius issued the Edict of Milan in 313, which proclaimed religious tolerance of all religions throughout the empire. The foremost general of his time, Constantine defeated the emperors Maxentius and Licinius during civil wars. He also fought successfully against the Franks, Alamanni, Visigoths, and Sarmatians during his reigneven resettling parts of Dacia which had been abandoned during the previous century. Constantine built a new imperial residence in place of Byzantium, naming it New Rome. However, in Constantine's honour, people called it Constantinople, which would later be the capital of the Eastern Roman Empire for over one thousand years. Because of this, he is thought of as the founder of the Eastern Roman Empire. Originally compiled by French historical writer, Charles Le Beau,the work was acontinuation of Charles Rollin's Histoire Romaine and JBL Crevier's Histoire des empereurs. This later new edition is produced by M. De Saint-Martin, a belletrist valued forhis aesthetic qualities and originality of style and tone. Thisinfluencial workis consideredto befaithfulto Byzantine historians, and the way in whichit describesConstantine I refounding itas an imperial residence in 330 AD. With R. M. Beverley's armorial bookplate to the front pastedown of each volume, author of The Darwinian Theory of the Transmutation of Species. Complete in twenty-one volumes.
