        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.

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. (recto title, verso blank), [3] (named cast list and contents), 4-223, [i] (blank) pp. Each piece with its own plate number, caption title, note "aus der Oper Euryanthe, von C.M. von Weber" and imprint; pagination is, however, continuous.

        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?' .

        Vue de la grotte de Matromania

      - (Naples) 1824, 16x24cm, une feuille sous marie-louise. - Acquerello originale Florian Grospietsch (firmato F. Grospietsch, 1824), pittore prussiano e incisore nato in Slesia, nato nel 1789 e morto nel 1841. Artista autodidatta, Grospietsch è famosa per il suo paesaggio e andò in Italia nel 1820 a dipingere dalla natura. 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. Grospietsch, 1824), peintre et aquafortiste prussien originaire de Silésie, né en 1789 et mort en 1830. 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.

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.

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.

        The City of Glasgow.

      London: Smith Elder & Co 1824 - Hand-coloured aquatint, 'drawn on the spot by I. Clark'. Image size (including text): 14 3/4 x 21 1/2 inches. Sheet size: 18 3/4 x 24 3/4 inches. An historically important topographical view of Glasgow in Scotland, from John Clark's 'Views in Scotland'. There is some debate as to who executed this stunning print. There is no reference which identifies the author of this view, but there is some indication that it is the work of the celebrated painter John Heaviside Clark (1770-1863). Born in Scotland, Clark exhibited regularly at the Royal Academy between 1801 and 1832. He was primarily a landscape and marine painter, but he also produced a number of fine aquatints, which exhibit his exceptional talents as an engraver. Known as "Waterloo Clark" for his early sketches of the battle of Waterloo, he was a painter of some repute across the British Isles, and his beautiful views remain some of the most attractive images of the English countryside. A contemporary gazetteer notes that the city was 'the manufacturing and commercial metropolis of Scotland, and the third city of the United Kingdom in point of population, and perhaps of wealth also.' (Fullarton [publisher's] A Gazetteer of the World 1856, III, p.615). According to the same source the population in 1821 was 147,043, the present view taken at about that time shows a city that is increasingly industrialised: factory chimneys are beginning to cast a pall of smoke over the city, but it has not yet come to completely overrun the landscape in which it is set. The population was to more than double in the next 20 years with the census of 1851 recording a population of 346,984. Cf. Abbey Scenery 489; cf. Prideaux p.331; Benezit, Dictionnaire des Peintres, Sculpteurs, Dessinateurs et Graveurs, vol 3, p. 676

        Beobachtungen über den Blasenschnitt durch den Mastdarm, zur Ausziehung des Steins aus der Harnblase.

      Weimar, im verlag des Gr.H. S. priv. Landes-Industrie-Comptoirs, 1824, 4, 26 pp., 1 gefalt. Kupfestichtafel, feiner Pappband mit eingebundener orig. Broschur. Erste deutsche Ausgabe!Scarpa unternahm während seines Lebens mehrere Studienreisen durch ganz Europa. Dadurch lernte er die bedeutenden medizinischen Einrichtungen sowie deren medizinisch-wissenschaftlichen und technischen Entwicklungsstand kennen und wusste Fortschritte für seine eigene Arbeit zu nutzen.Unter diesem Aspekt ist seine Schrift "Saggio di osservazioni sul taglio retto-vescicale per l'estrazione della pietra dalla vescica orinaria" aus dem Jahre 1823 zu sehen und zu werten. Ausdruck der Wertschätzung ist auch die Übersetzung dieses Werkes ins Deutsche und Französische.Die deutsche Übersetzung lautet: "Beobachtungen über den Blasenschnitt durch den Mastdarm, zur Ausziehung des Steins aus der Harnblase von Anton Scarpa", Weimar 1824, und die der Französischen: "Traite de l'opération de la taille, ou mémoires anatomiques et chirurgicaux sur les différentes méthodes employées pour pratiquer cette opération par Ant. Scarpa" Paris 1826.Als praktisch tätiger Chirurg wurde Scarpa häufig mit steinleidenden Patienten konfrontiert. Zur Entfernung eines Konkrementes aus der Harnblase bevorzugte er den Seitensteinschnitt, setzte sich aber ausführlich mit dem selten vorgenommenen Blasenschnitt durch den Mastdarm auseinander.Über die Vor- und Nachteile der verschiedenen Methoden, einen eingeklemmten Stein aus der prostatischen Harnröhre und aus der Harnblase zu entfernen, ist in der ersten Hälfte des 19. Jahrhunderts viel geschrieben worden. Sowohl im 19. als auch im 20. Jahrhundert spielte der Steinschnitt mit all seinen Methoden in der medizinisch-urologischen Fachliteratur immer wieder eine Rolle. Aber nur wenige Autoren boten in exakter Form fundiertes Wissen zur Problematik dieser zur damaligen Zeit schwierigsten und für den Patienten mit großen Gefahren und Komplikationen verbundenen urochirurgischen Operation.Scarpa geht in seiner Abhandlung neben der Entstehung und den Folgen einer Blasen-Rektum-Fistel für den betroffenen Patienten bereits sehr genau und ausführlich auf die Epididymitis und den Verlust der Zeugungsfähigkeit als Folgen des Steinschnitts ein. Er erläutert, mit welchen Methoden diese Komplikationen minimiert oder verhindert werden können. Der enorme Vorteil Scarpas - den er gegenüber zahlreichen Kollegen bei der theoretischen Beschäftigung und gleichzeitig praktischen Ausführung dieser Operationen besitzt - lag in seinem außerordentlich tiefgründigen anatomischen Basiswissen. Dieses bildete für ihn die Voraussetzung für das richtige chirurgische Vorgehen, damit der Patient möglichst keinen dauerhaften Schaden davontrug. Scarpa, der alle damals üblichen Methoden des Steinschnittes beherrschte, besaß ausgezeichnete anatomische Kenntnisse über die Morphologie und die Funktion der Organe und Gewebe des kleinen Beckens und erkannte dadurch die Gefahren, die durch falsche Indikationsstellungen, fehlendes anatomisches Wissen und mangelhafte chirurgische Fähigkeiten entstehen können.Seine Erfahrungen, die uns gleichermaßen ein Bild über die Kenntnisse zum männlichen Urogenitalsystem und die urochirurgische Ausbildung der Ärzte der damaligen Zeit vermitteln, fasst er folgendermaßen zusammen: "... der Mastdarm-Blasenschnitt würde der beste von allen bis jetzt bekannten Operationsarten seyn, wenn nämlich der hypogastrische Schnitt völlig unanwendbar ist, um einen besonders großen Stein auszuziehen, falls unter ähnlichen Umständen nicht ohnehin jede zu diesem Zweck gerichtete Operation durch den krankhaften Zustand der Blase und durch das große Ungemach, was nach dem Ausziehen des Steins durch den Eintritt des Koths in die schon kranke Blase entsteht, contraindicirt wäre. In den Fällen aber, wo der Stein von mittelmäßiger Größe ist, um durch das Mittelfleisch gebracht werden zu können, kann, wiewohl der Mastdarm-Blasenschnitt nach der Sansorischen Abänderung nicht weiter geht, als durch die häutige Harnröhre und die Vorsteherdrüse, er doch darum nicht für ein nützliches Ersatzmittel des Seitenschnittes gehalten werden, weil der Schnitt nicht gemacht werden kann, ohne den gemeinschaftlichen linken oder rechten Saamenausführungsgang zu durchschneiden, oder vielleicht auch beide, je nachdem sich die Steinsonde mit ihrer Rinne mehr gegen die rechte Seite des Kranken neigt, und die beiden Saamenausführungscanäle, wie es oft der Fall ist, parallel und dicht aneinanderlaufen, ehe sie sich an den Seiten des Caput Gal linaginis öffnen. Die Begünstiger des Mastdarm- Blasenschnitts machen den Vorteil geltend, daß sie bei ihrer Methode nie den Stamm der Schaamschlagader verletzen. Aber diese Furcht beunruhigt unsere jungen Wundärzte nicht mehr, weil keiner von ihnen den Seitenschnitt unternimmt, wenn er nicht zuvor in der Anatomie sehr erfahren, und in der Führung des Messers sehr geübt ist."Unter didaktischen Gesichtspunkten betrachtet ähneln Scarpas Ausführungen bereits sehr der Methodik moderner urologischer Operationslehren, in denen zu jeder Operation ein in der Urochirurgie sehr erfahrener Kollege kritische Anmerkungen macht.Am Ende seiner Ausführungen bringt Scarpa seine Hoffnung zum Ausdruck, dass da die Fortschritte des menschlichen Geistes in den Wissenschaften und Künsten unbegrenzt sind, ... wird vielleicht die Zeit kommen, wo [der] Seitenschnitt feinere Vervollkommnungen erhalten wird. Soviel kann man indeß behaupten, daß diese glückliche Epoche noch nicht gekommen ist, und daß man für jetzt gewiß nicht sagen kann, daß der Mastdarm-Blasenschnitt es sey: eine Operation, die in jeder Rücksicht die unvollkommenste und, ich muß es leider sagen, der großen Anatomen und operirenden Chirurgen unserer Zeit wenig würdig ist".

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift.

      Berlin 27.XII. 1824, 28.III. und 29.IV.1825. 4 Seiten gr., in kleiner Schrift eng beschrieben. Eilhard Mitscherlich (1794-1863), Chemiker, Entdecker des Isomorphismus. - Bedeutender, zweimal nach Unterbrechungen wieder aufgenommener Brief an einen Kollegen in Edinburgh (Sir David Brewster ?), u.a. über seine Untersuchungen des Schwefels (dessen Modifikationen er entdeckte) und seine Versuche zur Kupferschmelze und der Geschützgießerei. Erwähnt werden neben Anderen Arago, Berzelius, A. v. Humboldt, Magnus, Rose und Th. Thomson. Im Jahre 1824 besuchte er Humprey Davy, Faraday, Wollaston, and Dalton in England, wo er einige Fabriken besuchte. Der Brief beginnt mit einer Reminiszenz an seinen Aufenthalt in Edinburgh im Jahre 1824. "Me voilà dans un grand embarrase en vous adressant, mon bon ami, ma premiere lettre après notre voyage je desire si vivement de me soutenir dans votre amitié, dans la bonne opinion, que vous avez eue de moi, que je ne sais pas en effet, comment je peux vous exprimer assez, combien je suis sensible pour tout ce que vous avez fait pour moi pendant notre voyage et notre séjour à Edinbourg ..." Nach einer Schilderung seiner beschwerlichen Rückreise (Lüttich, Kassel und Göttingen werden als Reisestationen erwähnt) kommt er auf seine Vorschungsvorhaben zu sprechen: "Je viens de terminer les analyses des sulfures, dont je vous ai parlé et je serai bientôt en état de publier le mémoire que vous vouliez bien prendre sous votre protection amicale. Je commencerai après l'analyse des fontes, ce travail, auquel j'ai été forcé par le Ministre de la Guerre m'était au commencement très désagréable, mais j'en suis maintenant très content on m'a donné des echantillons des canons que l'on a essayé par des tirages on a fait des canons avec de la fonte, provenant des charbons de bois et de cooks des essais preliminaires m'ont donné dans toutes les fontes, provenant des cooks und quantité moindre de carbone et une quantité considérable de silicium qui n'existe pas du tout ou seulement en petite quantité dans la fonte provenant des charbons de bois j'ai en même tems analysé le fine-métal qui, d'après mes essais preliminaires contient encore un peu plus de carbon, que la fonte employée, mais ne contient plus de silicium ..." Nach einer dreimonatigen, durch sein rheumatisches Leiden verursachten Unterbrechnung nimmt er den Brief wieder auf mit der Nachricht, dass Berzelius seinen Besuch für den Sommer angekündigt habe wie es um die Pläne einer gemeinsamen Schlesien-Reise stehe, könne er noch nicht sagen. "... Nous venons de recevoir des nouvelles de Mr. Berzelius, je ne sais pas, presqu'à quel point notre voyage projecté en Silesie s'executera, mai il parait très certain, que Mr. Berzelius viendra nous voir au commencement d'Aout. Mr. Hisinger et le comte de Wachtmeister, le même, qui a fait des recherches des grénats ... l'accompagneront ... je desirerai bien vivement de vous voir ici pendant la présence de Mr. Berzelius il pourrait contribuer à vous dedommager un peu des fatigues d'un grand voyage ... Ma santé est entièrement retablie, même mon mal de nerfs a considerablement diminué mon humeur triste cependant ne me quitte pas il a été surtout très-nourri pendant les dernieres mois, dans les quels des travaux très desagréables m'ont empêcher de toute recherche scientifique, que j'ai pu maintenant recommencer. J'ai bâti un assez grand fourneau à flammes, dans lequel je peux fondre deux quintaux de cuivre à la fois j'ai fait le pont avec des trous, de manière que je peux regler l'oxidation et la desoxidation à volonté, je l'ai mis dans mon laboratoire, où il n'occupe que fort peu de place ...Mr. Magnus a fini son travail sur les pyrophores il a trouvé que tous les corps, qui ont une affinité assez grande pour l'oxigène ... s'enflamment exposés à l'air, p.e. la poudre de fer ... on obtient les corps dans un tel état en reduirant les oxides des metaux, qui ne se fondent qu'à une haute température à une température peu élevée il a trouvé à cette occasion, que le fer est completement reduit par l'hydrogène à une température qui n'est plus haute, que 00." Am 29.IV.1825 nimmt Mitscherlich den Brief wieder auf, erneut mit Nachrichten von Berzelius, der nun doch nicht nach Deutschland komme, weshalb er nun eigene Reisepläne habe. "... je me propose de faire un voyage sur le Rhin, et d'aller même presqu'à Liege mon but est, d'etudier les etablissements metallurgiques ... je passerai quelques tems à Liège et à Stolberg et dans les environs d'Elberfeld Mr. Rose, le mineralogiste, m'accompagnera peutêtre pour voir les anciens Volcans du Rhin. Je partirai le 1er Sept. ..." - Der Brief schließt mit der - wiederholten - Ankündigung eines Pakets mit Proben und Geräten.

        Essai sur les cloaques ou égouts de la ville de Paris, envisagés sous le rapport de l'hygiène publique et de la topographie médicale de cette ville.

      1824 - Paris, imprimerie de Dondey-Dupré, 1824. 8:o. XVI,240 pp. Sewn as issued and uncut in printed grey paper wrappers. Spine worn. Covers with dog ears, the rear one with a few tears. Occasional marginal foxing. Tear in upper margin on pp. 171-72. Signature of P. O. Liljevalch dated Paris 1843 on front cover. A very good copy.The work was reprinted in 1836 in the first part of the posthumous omnibus volume "Hygiène publique". Alexandre Parent du Châtelet (1790-1836) was a physician in Paris. He is mainly known for his large work on the prostitution in Paris, which was posthumously published in 1836. In the foreword for "Essai sur les cloaques", which describes the sewage system of Paris and its function, Parent du Châtelet writes that he has visited all the places which he describes in the text: "j'ai surmonté sans hésiter la répugnance et les dangers inséparables de pareilles recherches [.]. J'ai fait tout ce que doit faire un homme jaloux de découvrir la vérité, et de jeter quelque lumière sur un sujet obscur". As the big cities of Europe grew quickly during the 19th century there was an urgent need for functional sewage systems and in Paris some 2000 kilometers of sewers were eventually built. Peter Olof Liljevalch (1807-77) was a physician and from 1884 royal physician. During the years 1842-45 he made a scientific journey to Paris at public expense, and it was at this occasion he acquired this book. Liljevalch also was a great collector of books and manuscripts. His library was sold at auction in 1877.

        Suit of Armour for Youth, A.

      London: Published by the Proprietor, 1824. Eleven Hand-Colored Flaps Revealing Moral Maxims[GRIMALDI, Stacy]. A Suit of Armour for Youth. London: Published by the Proprietor, 1824. First edition. Hand-colored issue. Twelvemo (7 1/8 x 4 1/8 inches; 182 x 105 mm.). xii, 92 pp. Hand-colored engraved frontispiece and eleven hand-colored engraved plates, each with a hand-colored engraved overslip.Bound ca. 1900 by R. Wallis (stamp-signed on verso of front free end-paper). Full polished tan calf, covers double-ruled in gilt, spine with five raised bands, decoratively tooled in gilt in compartments, two tan morocco labels lettered in gilt, gilt board edges and turn-ins, marbled end-papers, all edges gilt. Top of spine expertly and almost invisibly repaired, otherwise a near fine example. It would appear that this little book was published both plain or more expensive, as here, hand-colored.William Grimaldi (1751-1830). "One day, seeking some ideas for a house party which his family was to hold, he found inspiration in a group of articles on his daughter's dressing-table. He sketched a number of these on the top flaps of sheets of paper folded in half, and underneath drew an appropriate virtue. For instance, a sketch of a container of Rouge superieur, ne se vend à Paris was opened to reveal a scene captioned 'Modesty' underneath. Grimaldi had no further thought for the nine items than that they might provide interest at the party, but his son Stacy (1790-1863), a London solicitor and genealogist, was so impressed by the idea that he insisted they should be published. The elder Grimaldi was encouraged to write a verse to accompany each drawing, and Stacy then saw to the publication - at his father's expense. The Toilet, as the book was called, appeared in 1821 and quickly sold out, necessitating at least one reprint. Imitations soon appeared, and from Ireland came Indispensable Requisites for Dandies of both Sexes (circa 1823), and an anonymous American author from Boston offered My Lady's Casket in 1835. The Grimaldis produced a considerably more elaborate sequel for boys in 1824 entitled A Suit of Armour for Youth, which… again used the same flap principle. In this book eleven pieces of armour were, represented - a crest, helmet, breastplate, backplate, sword, shield, tilting-lance, housings, gauntlets, spurs and a banner - and beneath each an appropriate moral maxim." (Peter Haining. Movable Books. An Illustrated History. p. 16)."The Grimaldis produced a sequel for boys in 1824 called Suit of Armour for Youth. In this pieces of body armour were faithfully reproduced with moral maxims to match. Thus "The Strongest Breastplate", when raised disclosed George III addressing the House of Lords, the picture being labelled "Virtue". " (Percy Muir. English Children's Books 1600 to 1900, p. 215).Gumuchian, 1995; Haining, p.16; Muir, p. 215; Osborne, p. 418.

        Six months' residence and travels in Mexico; containing remarks on the present state of New Spain, Its natural productions, state of society, manufactures, trade, agriculture, and antiquities, &c.

      London Murray 1824 - FIRST EDITION.8vo., [2], v-xii, 532pp., with 2 folding engraved maps, folding table, 16 aquatint plates, 4 coloured by hand. Contemporary pale half calf, spine gilt in 6 compartments, green lettering piece, brown marbled boards and endpapers, a fine fresh copy. William Bullock was a showman, collector and naturalist. In 1809 he moved his growing collection of 'natural curiousities' from Liverpool to London, originally to Piccadilly and then to the 'Egyptian Hall', which housed around 32,000 objects of natural history, ethnography and archaeology. Bullock knew that novelty was the key to maintaining his audience and so in 1819 he auctioned his permanent collection and hosted temporary exhibitions instead. Two such exhibitions- titled Ancient Mexico and Modern Mexico- held in 1824, included artifacts and specimens brought back from his 1822 trip to Mexico. Sabin records that Bullock was "the first English traveller in Mexico since Father Gage in 1640". He "spent six months collecting 'scientific information' that amounted to a vast array of flora, fauna, pre-Columbian manuscripts, sculptures and other artifacts" (Stephen, 157). In exhibiting these finds in England he became " the first to present Mexican arts to the public in the postindependence period", praising in particular the "productive industry" of rural folk art (Stephen, 157). Includes 'The Plan of the City of Mexico', based on the celebrated map of Mexico City by Diego García Conde orginally engraved in 1807. Extremely difficult to obtain because of its rarity and format, Conde's map, as found in this book, is an alternativeway of acquiring an early version of the greatest nineteenth-century map of Mexico City.
