        Wahrheit aus Morgensträumen und Idas ästhetische Entwicklung.

      1824 1824 - Aarau: bei Heinrich Remigius Sauerländer 1824. X + 294 s. Rent og pænt eksemplar indbundet i samtidigt havlæder med håndskreven titel på ryggen. Gammelt navn på friblad. * Bogen indeholder forfatterens optegnelser om hendes barndom og ungdom indtil 1780. Udover de biografiske og psykologiske bidrag til belysningen af en fremragende kvindes udvikling, som den formede sig dengang, indeholder den mange elskværdigt fortalte træk af kendte personers livshistorie. Fremfor alt giver den et billede af det borgerlige familieliv i København, som ikke let overgås af noget andet memoireskrift fra den tid. Som et tillæg til bogen findes en skildring af datteren Idas udvikling som et sidestykke til moderens, og den slutter med Friederike Bruns "Lieder für Hellas", der er skrevet i 1821. (Louis Bobé). Bibl. Dan. III,1040. Goedeke V, 431,11.The book contains the author's notes about her childhood and adolescence until the 1780. Besides the biographical and psychological contributions to the illumination of an excellent woman's development, which took the form of time, it contains many features graciously told about well-known persons life story. Above all, it delivers an image of bourgeois life in Copenhagen, which is not easily surpassed by other memoirs from that time. As a supplement to the book is a portrait of his daughter Ida's development as a counterpart to his mother, and it ends with Friederike Brun's "Lieder für Hellas", written in 1821. (Louis Bobé). Bibl. Dan. III, 1040 Goedeke V, 431.11.

        A Comparative View of the various Institutions for the Assurance of Lives.London: printed for J. Mawman and sold by J. Booth, 1826.

      First edition of Babbage's first substantial published work, the first thorough treatise on actuarial theory, complete with folding table of mortality statistics, generally considered the first reliable life table. It serves as an early example of the desire and need for accurate statistics and calculations that would be a driving force throughout Babbage's life. (He was, after all, the man who reputedly once wrote to poet Alfred Lord Tennyson and demanded he change the lines: "Every moment dies a man, Every moment one is born" to "Every moment dies a man, Every moment one and one-sixteenth is born.")<br/><br/> &#10087;Origins of Cyberspace 36. <br/><br/> "Babbage was offered the position of director and actuary of the fledgeling Protector Life Assurance Company with the prospect of an annual income of £2500, a substantial improvement on his father's grudging allowance. He spent several months studying the life assurance business and computed a new set of life tables. The venture was abandoned the day before its scheduled launch on 1 July 1824. Babbage used his actuarial knowledge as the basis for a small popular work, <i>A Comparative View of the Various Institutions for the Assurance of Lives</i> (1826). The book was not intended for the professional actuary but for the general populace unwary of the pitfalls of conveniently misrepresented benefits. It was, at least in part, a work of consumer protection with Babbage self-cast as champion of the exposé" (ODNB). <br/><br/> In this work, Babbage "provided a simple guide to the quantitative basis of life insurance and fulminated against "the disgraceful practices which prevail at some assurance offices" (p. ix), such as allowing lawyers and other interested parties to sell policies on commission. Babbage's book was translated into German in 1827, and formed the basis for the Life Assurance Bank of Gotha, which also adopted Babbage's actuarial tables" (OOC). <br/><br/> Kress 24945; A. W.

        Wahrheit aus Morgensträumen und Idas ästhetische Entwicklung.

      Aarau: bei Heinrich Remigius Sauerländer 1824. X + 294 s. Rent og pænt eksemplar indbundet i samtidigt havlæder med håndskreven titel på ryggen. Gammelt navn på friblad.. Bogen indeholder forfatterens optegnelser om hendes barndom og ungdom indtil 1780. Udover de biografiske og psykologiske bidrag til belysningen af en fremragende kvindes udvikling, som den formede sig dengang, indeholder den mange elskværdigt fortalte træk af kendte personers livshistorie. Fremfor alt giver den et billede af det borgerlige familieliv i København, som ikke let overgås af noget andet memoireskrift fra den tid. Som et tillæg til bogen findes en skildring af datteren Idas udvikling som et sidestykke til moderens, og den slutter med Friederike Bruns "Lieder für Hellas", der er skrevet i 1821. (Louis Bobé). Bibl. Dan. III,1040. Goedeke V, 431,11.The book contains the author's notes about her childhood and adolescence until the 1780. Besides the biographical and psychological contributions to the illumination of an excellent woman's development, which took the form of time, it contains many features graciously told about well-known persons life story. Above all, it delivers an image of bourgeois life in Copenhagen, which is not easily surpassed by other memoirs from that time. As a supplement to the book is a portrait of his daughter Ida's development as a counterpart to his mother, and it ends with Friederike Brun's "Lieder für Hellas", written in 1821. (Louis Bobé). Bibl. Dan. III, 1040 Goedeke V, 431.11

        Victory of Sachturis at Samos."

      Philhellenic: Munich H. Kohler c1835. Tinted lithograph, as issued, of Georgios Sachtouris during the Battle of Samos, from Peter von Hess&#39;s Album of Greek Heroism, or the Deliverance of Greece / Griechenlands Befreiung ... in XXXIX Bildern.[ First edition.] within decorative borders incorporating captions in Greek, German, French & English. The borders are decorated with guns, swords and helmets with the Greek flag to the left; on the right a crucifix and other emblems of the Christian church; at the top Turkish weapons, laid down, with a fez ,and below, sails and naval instruments. The image shows Sachturis on board ship during the Battle of Samos August 1824. The island of Samos, under its leader, Lykourgos Logothetis, had successfully rebelled against the Ottomans in 1821, and established its own autonomous government. The island&#39;s position however, a few miles off the Anatolian coast, made it vulnerable to a potential Ottoman attack. In the summer of 1824, following the destruction of Psara, the Ottoman fleet and troops assembled on the Anatolian coast, with the intention of capturing the island. Anxious to avoid repeating the failure to protect Psara, the Greek fleet, under admiral Georgios Sachtouris, assembled to guard the island. After some minor engagements on the previous days, the decisive battle occurred on August 17. The Greek fireships, including one under the celebrated Constantine Kanaris, then attacked and succeeded in burning three Ottoman ships, forcing the Kapudan Pasha Mehmed Hüsrev to withdraw. Image bright and clean; a few light spots to blank borders. Peter( Heinrich Lambert} von Hess 1792-1871, was a German painter, known for historic paintings, especially of the Napoleonic Wars and the Greek War of Independence. In 1833, at Ludwig&#39;s request, he accompanied Otto of Greece to the newly formed Kingdom of Greece, where at Athens he gathered materials for pictures of the war of liberation. He stayed nine months in Greece, interviewing heroes and eyewitnesses of the 1821 revolution. His first- hand knowledge of the heroes gives power to his work. He drew 39 historical persons The sketches which he then made were placed, forty in number, in the Pinakothek, after being copied in wax on a large scale by Nilsen, in the northern arcades of the Hofgarten at Munich, [sadly now destroyed]. It should be noted that Hess was not present during the Revolution; the paintings are representations of reported events. many are of Greek victories, or of heroic deaths of the Greek leaders.

        Histoire generale de la digestion (galley proofs)

      Paris. Corrected Galleys of an Unpublished Work Corvisart, Lucien (1824-82). Histoire generale de la digestion [caption title]. Author's interleaved & corrected proofs, bound in 2 vols., 8vo, the first volume comprising the Introduction historique sur la digestion en general. [ix]-clii; 144pp. Both paginations incomplete (text on last pages breaks off in mid-sentence). N.p., n.d. [Paris, not before 1863]. 216 x 138 mm. 19th cent. half calf, a little rubbed. Uneven browning, occasional foxing & soiling, but very good. Modern bookplate. Corrected Galley Proofs, with author's extensive annotations on about one-quarter of the pages, of what appears to be an unpublished work. Corvisart, the nephew of Jean Nicolas Corvisart des Marest, devoted a good portion of his career to the physiology of digestion, performing important research on the pancreas (see Garrison-Morton 1001) and publishing several works in the mid-19th century on various aspects of digestion and nutrition. He may have intended his Histoire generale de la digestion to be his crowning work in this field: written some time after the publication of his Collection de memoires sur une fonction peu connue du pancreas (1857-63), it tackles the entire history of digestion physiology from ancient times to his own era, and presents a detailed study of the function and purpose of the entire digestive and nutritional system from the stomach to the large intestine, with particular emphasis on the pancreas. When we checked OCLC showed no works by Corvisart published after the Collection de memoires, so that our set of corrected proofs represents what may be the only written evidence of Corvisart's scientific work after 1863.
