        Tableau historique et pittoresque de la route du Simplon de Genève à Milan, orné de 40 vues et d'une carte itinéraire.

      Milan, Ferdinando Artaria 1824 - in-4, IX-167-[3] pp., avec 40 très belles vues à l'aquatinte, et une grande carte dépliante "in fine", cartonnage rigide de papier crème, dos lisse, pièce de titre (reliure de l'époque). Des salissures sur le premier plat, début de fente au mors supérieur. Très rare album romantique illustré de 40 vues à l'aquatinte. Il s'agit en fait, sous un titre un peu différent, de la troisième édition de ce bel album, la première étant parue en 1811 à l'adresse de Paris chez Pierre Didot, et ne comprenant que 35 planches (Voyage pittoresque de Genève à Milan, par le Simplon). Suivit en 1819 une édition en italien à l'adresse de Milan. Les vues de toutes ces sorties ne se correspondent pas forcément, mais illustrent le même itinéraire et sont l'oeuvre de Gabriel Lory fils (1784-1846). Longchamp, 2852 et 1857-1858. Seulement deux exemplaires au CCF (BnF et Lyon). Sur la page de garde, un contemporain a écrit "J'ai rapporté ce livre d'Italie". Bon exemplaire dans son cartonnage d'origine à toutes marges et pratiquement sans rousseurs. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Le Mexique en 1823, ou Relation d’un Voyage dans la Nouvelle-Espagne, contenant des Notions Exactes et peu connue sur la Situation Physique, Morale et Politique de ce Pays; accompagne d’un Atlas de Vingt Planches, Precede d’une Introduction, et enrichi de Pieces Justificatives et de Notes, par Sir John Byerley

      Alexis-Eymery, Paris 1824 - Two text volumes in octavo: [4],lxxii,364; [4],370 (misnumbered 360) p. Half titles, errata leaf + Oblong octavo atlas: 11 p. of text plus 21 plates (including lithograph portrait of Bullock, 2 folding engraved plans and 18 (6 hand-colored) lithographs by Marlet after Bullock (the author’s son), Boquet, Brisou and Lepinoy). First French edition, translated from the English of this outstanding travel account of Mexico, with the atlas of beautiful lithographic views of cities, towns, antiquities, and six hand-colored Mexican costume plates. Bullock, naturalist and antiquarian, started his career as a jeweler and goldsmith in Sheffield, then founded a private natural history collection and museum first in Liverpool and then in London. In 1822, the first year of Mexican independence, Bullock traveled to Mexico, being the first English traveler in Mexico since Thomas Gage in 1640. Bullock became a naturalized Mexican citizen, and the new Mexican government gave him a silver mine near Temascaltepec. He brought back many Mexican artifacts to England (with the permission of Lucas Alamán), including a cast of the great Aztec calendar, models of the Teotihuacán pyramids, and the original map of pre-conquest Mexico which is illustrated in the atlas volume. These Mexican artifacts became the nucleus of a growing collection on "Ancient and Modern Mexico" put up for display at Egyptian Hall, Piccadilly, London. The atlas includes handsome views of Puebla, Xalapa, San Juan de Ulloa, Veracruz, the pyramids of the sun at Teotihuacan, and the valley of Mexico showing Tacuba (now part of Mexico City). Of the two plans, one is a detailed view of Mexico City as it appeared in the 1824, commissioned by Don Diego García, with dozens of buildings labeled. Text volumes bound in contemporary deep red morocco over marbled boards, panelled spine; the Atlas volume apparently was originally bound in wrappers: in this set it has been rebound in cloth boards with the original wrappers pasted on front and back. The text volumes have scattered mild foxing throughout; the atlas is largely free of foxing, and what there is is minor. Overall condition is very good -- a nice, solid set.

Göthel p. 336.Faust, to a libretto by Joseph Carl Bernard, was first performed in Prague at the Estates Theatre on September 1, 1816. ". Faust marks an important landmark in the development of German Romantic opera. Spohr's concern to create scene complexes, rather than merely a string of individual numbers, points the way towards the continuity of his later operas. His striking use of chromatic harmony was recognized by Weber, who wrote in his introduction to the Prague première: 'this dark, Romantic spirit-world is ideally matched with the composer's inmost musical character. Owing to this fact the work as a whole is marked by great aptness of colour - grand musical and dramatic effects of charm and tenderness alternating with shatteringly powerful effects in the ensembles and choruses'." "Regarded by many contemporaries as worthy of a place beside Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven in the pantheon of the greatest composers, [Spohr] has, together with Gluck and Cherubini, been allotted a considerably lower status by posterity. Mozart's Figaro and Wagner's Tristan were both composed during Spohr's lifetime; his own work looks, Janus-like, towards both the formalism and clarity of the Classical tradition, and the structural and harmonic experimentation associated with 19th-century Romanticism."

        Journal of a Second Voyage for the Discovery of a North-West Passage from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

      London: John Murray,, 1824. Performed in the Years 1821–22–23 in His Majesty's Ships Fury and Hecla. Quarto (275 × 205 mm). Contemporary tan diced calf, smooth spine gilt-ruled in compartments with floral centrepieces in blind, rope-twist roll gilt to covers enclosing gilt supralibros of William Lowther, 2nd Earl of Lonsdale, sprinkled edges, floral roll gilt to turn-ins, blue-green endpapers. 26 engraved or aquatint plates after George Lyon including frontispiece, all with tissue guards, 2 plans, 3 charts, 4 folding charts and 4 folding coastal profiles to rear. Bookplate of Hugh Cecil Lowther, 5th Earl of Lonsdale, to the front pastedown. Spine a little dry, small chip at headcap, short crack to head of front joint, covers variably faded, corners bumped and worn, a few plates slightly foxed (mainly in margins) and offset, plate of artefacts facing p. 548 just shaved in fore margin, but overall a very good, attractive copy. First edition, from the library of the earls of Lonsdale at Lowther Castle, with the gilt supralibros of William Lowther, 2nd Earl of Lonsdale (1787-1872) and influential Tory who succeeded Palmerston as junior lord of the Admiralty in 1809 and went on to hold a number of senior positions including postmaster general; sold in 1947 at the auction of the contents of Lowther Castle, necessitated by the extravagance of Hugh Cecil Lowther, the fifth earl (1857-1944), who spent most of his family's wealth on "a life of ostentatious pleasure" (National Portrait Gallery, online), mainly horses and other outdoor pursuits, including, pertinently, a perilous expedition to Melville Island, Arctic Canada, in 1888-9, which nearly resulted in his death and during which he collected several hundred Inuit artefacts now in the British Museum; his imposing armorial bookplate is mounted to the front pastedown. Parry was appointed to the Fury shortly after returning from his pioneering voyage of 1819-20 and "in May 1821 sailed from the Nore in company with … the Hecla, commanded by George Francis Lyon. Passing through Hudson Strait and Foxe Channel on this his longest voyage, he examined Repulse Bay, proved the accuracy of the observations made by Christopher Middleton, passed one winter at Winter Island and another at Igloolik (enlivened by the presence of the local Inuit), and traced Fury and Hecla Strait to its western end. Through the summers of 1822 and 1823 this strait was blocked by ice, and, as symptoms of scurvy were beginning to appear, Parry judged it inadvisable to attempt a third winter in the ice. The ships returned to Britain and were paid off at Deptford on 14 November 1823. Parry had meantime been advanced to the rank of post captain (8 November 1821) and was now appointed acting hydrographer (1 December 1823). A few weeks later he was entrusted with the command of a third expedition in the Hecla, accompanied by the Fury (Lieutenant Henry Hoppner), which sailed from Deptford on 8 May 1824" (ODNB). Parry's official account is considerably enlivened by Lyon's atmospheric plates, which include lively illustrations of the local Inuit.

        China: its Costume, Arts, Manufactures, &c.

      London: Howlett and Brimmer,, 1824. Edited principally from the originals in the cabinet of the late M. Bertin: with observations, explanatory, historical, and literary, by M. Breton. Translated from the French. 4 volumes bound as 2, small octavo (153 x 96 mm). Contemporary dark red straight-grain morocco, richly gilt spines, gilt and blind "Gothic arch" panelling on sides, all edges gilt, drab gray coated endpapers. 80 hand-coloured stipple-and-line engraved plates by Cardon, Freschi or Milton. 20th-century bookplate of Robert J. Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and discriminating collector of 18th-century literature in contemporary bindings. A few slight abrasions to covers, joints and extremities lightly rubbed. An excellent copy, with the half-titles. First Howlett and Brimmer edition, first published in English by Stockdale (London, 1812) and originally in France as La Chine en miniature (Paris: Nepveu, 1811). The charming plates were based on "works in the collection of the French petit ministre and sinophile Henri-Léotard Jean-Baptiste Bertin … as stated on the title page, but also on the engravings in George Henry Mason's two suites, The Costume of China and The Punishments of China. In its time, Breton's China must have been a best-seller" (Getty, China on Paper). A very pretty set in contemporary straight-grain morocco.

      Wien: S.A. Steiner und Comp. [PNs 4519-4545], 1824. First Edition. WeV C.10. Jähns 291. Hoboken 15, 361. Hirsch IV, 1290. First performed in Vienna on October 25, 1823. "Designated... as a 'grosse romantische Oper', the work combines the defining attribute of 'grand opera' as Weber understood it, the technique of through-composition,... with various attributes of the newer 'romantic' opera such as a medieval setting with a supernatural component and a high degree of structural and genre variety... Although seriously flawed in certain respects, Helmina von Chézy's libretto nevertheless allowed Weber to realize ideals of organic wholeness... even more thoroughly than in Der Freischütz... Slow, chromatic, and seemingly aimless music for divisi muted violins and violas characterizes the ethereal but restless existence of a spirit condemned to eternal wandering; with Emma's redemption at the end of the opera, however, this music is transformed into a diatonic form... Where dialogue separates the formal pieces, Weber composed a flexible, expressive type of accompanied recitative that has little in common melodically or harmonically with conventional approaches to recitative." Paul Corneilson et al in Grove Music Online. Oblong folio. Contemporary olive green cloth-backed marbled boards with green title label gilt to upper, decorative gilt rules to spine. 1f.

        An address from the liverpool society for the Abolition of Slavery, on the safest and most efficacious means of promoting the gradual improvement of the negro slaves in the British West India Islands, preparatory to their becoming free labourers, and on the expected consequences of such change

      Liverpool: [J. & G. Smith], [1824]. 18pp. Stitched, as issued. Title laid-down due to loss at head and foot and small hole to centre, loss of publisher's name and date to imprint, very small hole to final leaf, just touching text but without loss of sense, light spots of dust-soiling. A polemic against the slave trade in British West-India issued by The Liverpool Society for Promoting the Abolition of Slavery under the direction of society president William Roscoe (1753-1831). In 1807 royal assent had been provided for a parliamentary bill abolishing the British slave trade. This however did not include the ownership of slaves in the West-Indies, ultimately the practice would not be discontinued there until 1838. It was therefore deemed necessary by men such as Roscoe that the public be educated as to 'the nature and effects of Negro Slavery'. The address calls for the entire abolition of the trade in the British colonies, with freedom granted to all slaves, and the right for those released from servitude to possess property. The society are clearly aware of an inevitable backlash from the mercantile class of Liverpool who profited from the trade; 'Suggestions have been thrown out by advocates for Slavery, that if the Slaves in the British Colonies were liberated, they would be too indolent to labour...from all that the Society can collect...the precise reverse would be the fact. If, in the course of time, we could have a large population of free labourers on the fertile soils of Demerara, how could the planters of the Brazils and Cuba stand the competition?' .

Corre acquerelli, incisioni e dipinti di paesaggi napoletani, tra cui questa visione del golfo di Napoli da una grotta, dove si trova un carattere indietro. Questa alta qualità acquerello colori vivaci è stato aggiunto a un amicorum album tra molti paesaggi del Golfo di Napoli, molto apprezzato dall'aristocrazia europea in epoca post-napoleonica. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Aquarelle originale de Florian Grospietsch (signée F.

Artiste autodidacte, Grospietsch est célèbre pour ses paysages et se rend en en Italie en 1820 pour en peindre d'après nature. Il y exécute des "Vues d'Italie" (Italienischen Ansichten) : aquarelles, eaux-fortes et toiles de paysages napolitains, dont cette rare vue de la grotte de Matromania, une étrange cavité calcaire au sud-est de Capri, qui servit jadis de lieu de culte au dieu indo-persan Mithra mais aussi à la déesse des Phrygiens Cybèle. Ce lieu chargé de mystère et de romantisme fut fouillé au début du XIXe siècle, et attira voyageurs et peintres. Certains des paysages italiens de Grospietsch furent exposés à l'académie des beaux-arts de Berlin en 1822. Vue atypique aux couleurs éclatantes, où l'artiste s'est sans doute représenté à travers le voyageur solitaire assis au milieu de la grotte, dans un double effet de mise en abyme.

        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 Befreiungs-kriege 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 be-mühte sich dieselben durch andere zu ersetzen, welche ihrem Zwecke besser entsprächen, was ihm auch vollkommen ge-lang. Er kam nämlich auf den Gedanken, daß man eine An-zahl von Soldaten im Voraus zum Fortschaffen der Blessierten bestimmen und ausrüsten könne, welche nicht etwa Abtei-lungen bilden, sondern unter die Combattanten verteilt wer-den 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 ab-geben, die allen Erfordernissen entspricht. Zur Erleichterung des Tragens dieser Bahre sind an dem Lederzeuge der Sol-daten Carabinerhaken angebracht, welche teils an das Ge-wehrbajonett, 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 gelie-fert 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 Gefech-tes Tragbahren haben zu können ferner verursacht diese Ein-richtung 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.

Faust marks an important landmark in the development of German Romantic opera.

His striking use of chromatic harmony was recognized by Weber, who wrote in his introduction to the Prague première: 'this dark, Romantic spirit-world is ideally matched with the composer's inmost musical character. Owing to this fact the work as a whole is marked by great aptness of colour - grand musical and dramatic effects of charm and tenderness alternating with shatteringly powerful effects in the ensembles and choruses'." "Regarded by many contemporaries as worthy of a place beside Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven in the pantheon of the greatest composers, [Spohr] has, together with Gluck and Cherubini, been allotted a considerably lower status by posterity. Mozart's Figaro and Wagner's Tristan were both composed during Spohr's lifetime; his own work looks, Janus-like, towards both the formalism and clarity of the Classical tradition, and the structural and harmonic experimentation associated with 19th-century Romanticism."

        Ueberpflanzung völlig getrennter Hautstücke bei einer Frau, und Wiederanheilung einer grösstentheils abgehauenen Wange (pp.482-486).

      Journ. Chir. Augenh., 6/3. - Hrsg. v. Graefe & Walther. - Berlin, im Verlag von G. Reimer, 1824, 8, pp.379-568 pp., 1 gefalt. Tafel, feiner Pappband. First Edition of this very early report Johann Friedrich Diefenbach's relaiting to plastic surgery!"Not long after Bünger's description Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach (1792-1847) a celebrated German surgeon, and one of the founder of plastic surgery in Germany, published his report on a skin graft that he had performed largely as an experiment. This was part of a treatment of a 40-year-old woman suffering from sensory disorders and reduced muscular strength in the left half of the body. The physicians in charge believed that application of eoxogenous stimuli to the anaesthetic half of the body would have a beneficial effect on the disease process. Dieffenbach assumed that this could best be achieved by a kind of "exchange" skin graft. Prior to grafting, the skin on the flexor side of the forearm was stimulated by rubbing with alcohol, Dieffenbach apparently being influenced in this regard by Dutrochet's publication. A piece of skin the size of a taller (diameter: 35 mm) was cut from this area 24 h later. The thickness of the graft was not specified. A skin fragment of the same dimensions was excised from the extensor side of the forearm, without previously stimulating the area. The portions of the skin were exchanged and placed in the fresh wounds. They were held in position by means of adhesive plaster. The wounds were inspected after six days. The graft on the flexor side of forearm "floated in pus" the epidermis was still attached to it. The "prepared" graft placed on the extensor side of the forearm looked quite different. The epidermis had become detached, half of the graft had become putrefied, but the remainder was attached to the underlying structures and was surrounded by granulation tissue. Unfortunately, this fragment was inadvertently pulled loose from the underlying structures when the dressing was changed, whereupon both graft and wound began to bleed. According to Dieffenbach, the bleeding proved that the circulation had meanwhile been restored. Both skin defects subsequently healed within a few days. It was in fact even claimed that there was no scar." Henk J.

        Essais de mémoires, ou Lettres sur la vie, le caractère et les écrits de J.-F. Ducis, adressées à M. Odogharty de La Tour.

      Paris, Nepveu 1824 - in-8, [4]-III-437 pp., avec un frontispice sous serpente, maroquin à long grain aubergine, dos à faux-nerfs orné de filets, guirlandes et larges fleurons fleurdelisés dorés, encadrement de guirlande à froid, simple filet et guirlande dorés avec fleurs de lis en écoinçon sur les plats, roulette à froid en encadrement armes au centre, tranches dorées, dentelle intérieure, gardes doublées de tabis rose (Simier, rel. du Roi). Unique édition de ce qui reste le travail le plus intéressant de Vincent Campenon (1771-1843), médiocre tâcheron des lettres, mais qui était quand même des Quarante depuis 1813, date à laquelle il fut élu au siège de l'abbé Delille. En effet, avant de terminer la publication de ses Oeuvres complètes (1818-1826), il donne à lire un intéressant portrait littéraire de Jean-François Ducis (1733-1817), très oublié de nos jours, mais qui jouit à la fin du XVIIIe siècle d'une certaine renommée ; il avait de plus été secrétaire du Comte de Provence avant la Révolution. Cioranescu, XVIII, 25835. Magnifique exemplaire relié par Simier aux armes de Louis XVIII. En raison de la date de l'ouvrage, il est difficile de préciser si l'exemplaire était celui de Louis XVIII ou de Charles X, mais il est raisonnable de pencher pour Louis XVIII en raison des liens particuliers qui avaient uni Ducis à ce prince.

        Transplantationsversuche bei Thieren (pp.122-135).

      Journ. Chir. Augenh., 6/1. - Hrsg. v. Graefe & Walther. - Berlin, im Verlag von G. Reimer, 1824, 8, 195, (1) pp., 1 gefalt. Kupferstichtafel, feiner marmor. Pappband. Erstdruck! Nach der Dissertation (Nonula de regeneratione et transplantatione) von 1822 ist die seltene zweite gedruckte Arbeit von Dieffenbachs , er berichtet von seinen ersten Haut Transplantationsversuchen.Apart from his clinical experiment, Dieffenbach performed many experiments in an effort to establish the feasibility of skin grafting in birds, rabbits, cats nd dogs. Not only was skin grafted from one bird to another but also from mammals to birds. All these attempts failed because the grafts became desiccated. Dieffenbach suspected that this was due to the high body temperature of the birds. In another experiment, a pieglet's skin was gradfted on a piegon. The graft dried out, but the hairs in the grafted skin were reported as having resumed growing after 8 days. The test animal was sacrificed 10 days after the operation. The graft was found to be attached to the wound floor, but was not vascularized. Other experiments in rabbits and dogs likewise failed." Henk J. Klasen, History of Free Skin Grafting, p.4 Zeis Nr.344 Zeis Index No.332
