        Myriorama, a Collection of Many Thousand Landscapes, Designed by Mr. Clark.

      16 hand-coloured aquatint views after Clark, each numbered and mounted on a thin trip of card (200 x 70mm) with grey wash border top and bottom, contained in the original cardboard 'tray and lid' box with two divisions, hand-coloured aquatinted title label to outside lid, the aquatint views are slightly spotted, the book is rather rubbed with the label on the upper lid faded and stained, lower lip of box missing.The 16 hand-coloured cards, each with a landscape view, when placed together form a single panoramic view which is capable of rearrangement to form a endless variety of differing scenes. The subject typically shows a lake-shore with trees, figures, and animals in the foreground, island-castles and ships in the middle distance, and a background of mountains. It is claimed that Clark's set of sixteen cards are capable of 20,922,789,880,000 permutations!

        La Germanie. Traduite de Tacite. Avec un Nouveau Commentaire extrait de Montesquieu et des principaux publicistes; ATLAS volume only.

      C. L. F. Panckoucke,, Paris: 1824 - The atlas volume only of M. Panckoucke's translation of the work by Tacitus, the atlas illustrating the Frenchman's views. The plates are varied; some are of classical Roman statuary, others are quite unexpected, especially the plate "Guerrier des Terres Australes" which is drawn directly from Francois Peron's "Voyages aux Terres Australes", published the same year (1824). The letterpress, which is in French, draws attention to the similarity in coiffure and facial paint between the Australian aborigines and the Sueves and Aries, ancient peoples of Germany. The Sueves populated an area in NW Spain and Portugal. Their custom was to plait their hair and secure it with a knot. The caption to this print, drawn and engraved by Ambrose Tardieu, "Guerrier des Terres Australes, Coiffe comme les Sueves, et peint de rouge et de noir comme les Aries, peuple de la Germanie." In Peron's "Voyage" the plate is by Nicolas Petit, plate XVIII, titled "Nouvelle-Hollande Cour-Rou-Bari-Gal". The other most unusual plate is one of amber, illustrating six stones, both raw and cut as jewelry, some occluded with insect corpses. Not found on Trove (a digital edition of the text only is available). See OCLC: 6914012 for text & atlas volume.4to, title, 12 plates, some copper engraved, others stipple, with letterpress, with the original tissue guards.

        Draft of a Letter to the Catholic Association in Bentham's Hand.

      1824 - Draft of an Unsent Letter by Jeremy Bentham [Bentham, Jeremy (1748-1832)]. [Draft of a Letter to the Catholic Association in Bentham's Hand]. [London]: December 9, 1824. 12-1/2" x 8" leaf removed from ledger (or notebook), ruled in red, more than 60 lines of text in ink with extensive editing, cross-outs and amendments. Autograph note by John Bowring at head of leaf reading: "JB to the Catholic Association Not sent", 9 December 1824. Fold lines, light toning. * The text begins, as amended: "For the Catholic Rents. After the example set by The Examiner. Five pound from Jeremy Bentham in the humble and cordial wish that his oppressed brethren of the Catholic persuasion will neither retaliate persecution by persecution, nor attempt redress by insurrection, but unite with the liberal among Protestants for the attainment of security for all, against depredation and oppression in every shape, by the only practicable means - Parliamentary reform, in the radical and solely efficient mode .". This is followed by a long section, amounting to more than half the text, that is crossed out (but legible). The note by Bowring isn't entirely accurate. This letter was sent, but it did not contain the deleted text in the present manuscript draft. In his edition of Bentham's correspondence, Bowring noted at the end of his transcription that he had persuaded Bentham to suppress the text deleted. However, Bowring retained a copy of it and it is printed in full in The Correspondence of Jeremy Bentham (2006) 12:73. The Catholic Association, formed by Daniel O'Connell (himself a close friend of Bentham), collected money, known as the Catholic Rent, to defray the costs of publishing and petitioning for the removal of the political disabilities imposed on Roman Catholics. Bentham's contribution of ?5 was noted in the issue of The Examiner for 26 December 1824. The Examiner was a weekly newspaper found by Leigh and John Hunt in 1808 and for some years was a leading intellectual journal promoting radical principles. Bowring [1792-1872] was Bentham's executor and editor. Also a notable political economist and linguist, he was the fourth Governor of Hong Kong. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        "Idee zu einem Kupfer vor dem Volksschulliederbuch". Eigenhändiges Manuskript mit U. ("Hoppenstedt"). Wohl Hannover, vor 1824.

      1824. 2 SS. 4to. Wohl für den Verleger seines erstmals 1793 in Hannover erschienenen Buches "Lieder für Volksschulen" bestimmt, das bis 1823 vier weitere Auflagen erlebte. Interessante und umfangreiche Beschreibung einer ihm vorschwebenden Kupfertafel vor dem Liederbuch, aus der Hoppenstedts Persönlichkeit und sein pädagogisches Weltbild erkennbar werden. "Ein Schullehrer, in einfacher Tracht [...] sitzt unter einem Baum, mit einer Flöte, einigen Noten u. dergl. in der Hand. Ein Haufen Knaben, groß u. klein, sitzt zu seiner Linken, - ein gleicher Haufe Mädchen zu s. Rechten; u. diese alle sieht man frö[h]lich und in ungekünstelten Stellungen singen. Andre Kinder stehn schön gruppi[e]rt aufhorchend umher, - doch so, daß jedes Geschlecht für sich bleibt. Alle arbeiten, auch die Singenden. Theils stricken, theils nähen sie, - u. auch die Knaben stricken [...]". - Nach zahlreichen weiteren Details merkt Hoppenstedt an: "Ich darf wohl nicht hinzufügen, daß ich sehr natürlich mich gern bescheide, Manches auf einer einzigen Platte Unausführbare gesagt zu haben. Indeß wollte ich hiedurch auch nur meinen Wunsch zu erkennen geben [...]". - Die 5 Auflagen, die bis 1823 erschienen, enthielten, so weit wir feststellen konnten, keine solche Kupfertafel. Über Hoppenstedts sonstige Lehr- und Kinderbücher vgl. Goedeke VII 325, 25. - Sehr selten.

        Vorlesungen über Anthropologie zum Selbstunterricht [with] Kupfertafeln nebst Erklärung derselben zu den Vorlesungen über Anthropologie. Königsberg: Gebrüder Bornträger, 1824.

      - First edition of Baer's lectures on anthropology, complete with the seldom-found book of plates. Karl Ernst von Baer 1792-1876, Estonian biologist, anthropologist, naturalist and geographer, was a professor at Würzburg and Königsberg and from 1834 at St. Petersburg. Considered a founder of modern embryology, his studies were used by Darwin in developing his theory of the origin of species. ‘Von Baer also internationalized physical anthropology. In 1861, he called a meeting in Gottingen, where Blumenbach's collection was kept, to standardize the method of skull measurements. Standardization was not agreed upon, but the meeting was the beginning of the German Anthropological Society, and also of the German Archiv fur Anthropologie, which did not always remain everybody's favorite journal. Von Baer adopted Blumenbach's classification of races based on skull measurements; he thought all recent culture to be Germanic, hardly an anthropological judgment, but he did not find races physically superior one to the other. Eventually, he mellowed with respect to his feelings on the races of man, and came to believe that they were all derived from a single stock, and he felt that their differences in character were determined by both inherited drives and aptitudes and also by their external environment.’ (Jane M. Oppenheimer, 'Science and Nationality: The Case of Karl Ernst von Baer', Proceedings of the American Philosophical Society, Vol. 134, No. 2, 1990, pp. 75-82). PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION: 2 volumes, 8vo, xxxvi, 520, [2] pp. and folio 12 pp. with the 11 plates of which 2 coloured, contemporary marbled boards, first volume with paper spine label and worn at edges, plate volume in contemporary half leather with two small blemishes on spine, browned and spotted, still a decent set.

        L'Abeille des théâtres, chansonnier dédié aux dames

      12mo, 215 p., 7 hand-coloured plates, original green moiré silk, elaborate gilt border, in fine condition, in matching étui, very slightly fadedCounts as an almanac, since there is a calendar for 1824, but rather a collection of vaudeville songs (some perhaps not otherwise printed?) issued in a slender 33 copies as an instrument of patronage. The only contemporary reference I have found is in Physiologie du théâtre: par un journaliste [Louis Couailhac], Paris 1841, describing an evening party (p.17): "Plus loin, M. Léon Tricotln, rédacteur en chef de I'Aheille des Théâtres, feuille qui se tire à trente-trois exemplaires, donne d'un air important des .conseils saugrenus à trois ou quatre acteurs comparses qui ont la bonté de l'écouter, et leur promet de faire mention d'eux dans leprochain numéro de son journal. Ce prochain numéro paraît rarement." This edition is in BnF and 2 libraries in Germany, an 1825 edition )perhaps the only other to appear?) at Harvard and Illinois. The last auction record was at the Anderson galleries in 1909.

Theater in Berlin, der sich im Jahr zuvor einige Wochen in Dresden aufgehalten hatte. 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. "Ew. Wohlgebohren erlauben mir, schriftlich mit Ihnen in Verbindung zu treten, ohnerachtet ich noch nicht die Ehre habe von Ihnen persönlich gekannt zu seyn. S. Maj. der König haben mir die durch den Abgang des Hl. von Könneritz erledigte Generalidirection des hiesigen Hoftheaters und der Musikalischen Kapelle übertragen, und da ich den Wunsch habe, das hiesige Theater zur möglichsten Vollkommenheit zu bringen, solches mir aber nur dann erreichbar scheint, wenn wir darauf rechnen können Sie und Ihre Gemahlin [d. i. die Schauspielerin Amalie Wolff-Malcomi] in unserer Mitte zu besitzen, so gebe ich mir hiedurch die Ehre Ew. Wohlgebohren ergebenst zu ersuchen, im Fall es Ihren Plänen nicht entgegen, und Sie mit der hiesigen Bühne in Verbindung treten wollten, um hier die Leitung des Artistischen zu führen, mir die Bedingungen baldgefälligst bekannt zu machen, unter welchen Sie Sich dazu entschließen würden [...]" (a. d. Br. v. 4. X.). - Die Daten der einzelnen Briefe: I) 4. X. - II) 25. X. - III) 17. XI. - IV) 13. XII. Alle Briefe links oben mit späterer Numerierung. - Beiliegend ein eh. Briefkonzept mit U. von P. A. Wolff (dat. 8. XI. 1824, 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt, folio) in Beantwortung von Lüttichaus Schreiben v. 4. X.; grundsätzlich stimme er einem Wechsel nach Dresden zwar zu, stelle aber doch fünf Vertragsbedingungen. In Berlin sollte man jedoch an den Wolffs festhalten, ein Entlassungsgesuch wurde vom König abgeschlagen und Wolff wurde bedeutet, er würde unter keiner Bedingung entlassen werden und sich durch erneute Gesuche nur der Ungnade des Königs aussetzen.

      Firmin Didot père et fils Treüttel et Wurz Paris -6 1824 - Two volumes 8vo and one 4to. Half-title, title, 109 pp. and III plates with hieroglyphs printed in orange on china paper laid; half-title, title, 167 pp.; atlas volume with plates IV-XVI with pl. VIIIbis, pl. XVI in colour. Original printed wrappers, vol. 2 in plain wrappers as published, plates loose in atlas vol.; atlas with spine almost fully split. Important and uncommon work in Champollion's career, "the first attempt [together with his Précis du système hiéroglyphique des anciens Egyptiens, published the same year] to integrate Egyptian art with what was now a confident understanding of the complexities of the forms and structures of Egyptian writing" (Buhe). A fine example of the first edition, in original wrappers. Helped by his friend and patron, the Duke of Blacas, Champollion could at last travel to Italy to inspect primary sources directly, before going to Egypt four years later. In Turin he analysed the Drovetti collection, freshly acquired by King Charles Felix - an amazing collection, which Blacas wanted France to buy first. Champollion discovered among the thousand pieces what is now known as the Turin Royal Canon, the most extensive list available of kings compiled by the Egyptians, and the basis for most chronology before the reign of Ramesses II. The Lettres contain the first mention and publication of this major papyrus, and became therefore an important work on Egyptian dynasties. More than 55 pp. are dedicated to a "Notice chronologique des dynasties égyptiennes de Manéthon", written by Champollion's brother. "It was in Turin that Champollion was confronted for the first time with a diverse set of Egyptian statues, vessels, sarcophagi, and papyri; not only could he now perform comparisons of like objects from vastly different dynasties, but he could also begin the process of analyzing each object's inscriptions and evaluating them against his developing chronology of ancient Egyptian pharaohs. These letters reveal Champollion's excitement and simultaneously register his realization of the wholly inadequate state of extant theories on Egyptian history and art: "it is only in the Royal Museum of Turin, amidst this mass of remains from an ancient civilization, that the history of Egyptian art seemed to me to remain entirely still to be written."[11] Champollion's Lettres à M. le duc de Blacas reads as a descriptive assessment of the relative placement of the Egyptian objects he scrutinized on a temporal continuum, and the primarily empirical thrust of this analytic endeavor is underscored by a chronology that appears at the end of each letter and relates to the Egyptian objects Champollion treated therein." (Buhe) Pierre Louis Jean Casimir de Blacas d'Aulps, 1st Count, 1st Duke and finally 1st Prince of Blacas (1771-1839), was a friend and counsellor of Louis XVIII, as well as ambassador in Naples and Rome during the Bourbon Restoration. Charles X chose him to be one of his "premier gentilhommes de la chambre". During his administration, he supported Champollion and created the "Musée Egyptien" within the Louvre. In his lifetime, Blacas amassed a rich antiquities collection that Joseph Toussaint Reinaud described in part under the title Description des monuments musulmans du cabinet du duc de Blacas in 1828. In 1866, his descendants sold most of his collection to the British Museum, where it is still today.

        Rosa parvi-flora / Rosier à petites fleurs [Double Pasture Rose]

      Paris: Firmin Didot, 1824. Stipple engraving printed in black, after Redouté, printed by Rémond. Very good condition apart from some overall light soiling. A rare uncoloured impression from the first edition of 'Les Roses': Redouté's most famous work, and perhaps the most celebrated flower book of all time.Pierre-Joseph Redouté, the most successful flower painter of all time, produced a work that was not only of great artistic merit, but also formed an invaluable scientific recordl. Redouté described and figured almost all the important roses known in his day, and included were many of the ancestors of today's 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.The plates of 'Les Roses' were executed by means of stipple engraving, a method ideally suited to render the nuances of tone found in Redouté's original water-colours. During a trip to London, he met the renowned engraver Francesco Bartolozzi and learned that the most successful impressions of stipple engravings came from well-used plates. Redouté's printers therefore struck a limited number of black plates to take the edge off the plate before printing in colours.This print was printed in black on ochre-tinted paper. The ochre tint has subsequently been removed to reveal Redouté's full mastery of the stipple-engraving technique that this image so effortlessly demonstrates.Cf. Cleveland Collections 807; cf. Dunthorne p 232; cf. Hunt, Redoutéana 19; Hunt, Printmaking in the Service of Botany 25; Nissen BBI 1599; Pritzel 7455; Ray, French89; Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8747.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. O. O. u. D.

      1824. 2 SS. 8vo. "Ich bedaure sehr, Herr Friedlaender, Sie nicht gesehen zu haben. Kommen Sie doch, wo möglich morgen - Donnerstag - um 11 Uhr oder Freitag bis Mittag. In der Regel bin ich nur vormittags zu Hause [...]. Ich habe Ihnen ohnlängst abermals geschrieben und Ihnen neue Eintrittskarten zu unserem Feste im Hotel de Ville zugeschickt, habe aber nochmals keine Antwort von Ihnen erhalten und zweifle ob Ihnen mein Brief zugekommen [...]". - Mainzer studierte seit 1824 Theologie am Bischöflichen Priesterseminar in Trier und wurde 1827 zum Priester geweiht. Mit Unterstützung seines Bischofs konnte Mainzer seine musikalische Ausbildung auf Studienreisen fortsetzen und war nach seiner Rückkehr 1830 als Gesanglehrer am Bischöflichen Priesterseminar sowie am Lehrerseminar in Trier tätig. Wegen seiner Zugehörigkeit zu den sogenannten Reformgeistlichen wurde er 1832 vom geistlichen Amt suspendiert; Mainzer verließ die kath. Kirche und emigrierte nach Brüssel. Seit 1835 lebte er als Komponist, Musikkritiker und -pädagoge in Paris, ging 1841 nach London, dann nach Edinburgh und wurde 1844 mit einer musikwissenschaftlichen Arbeit promoviert. 1842 gründete er "Mainzers Musical Times", die heutige "Musical Times".

        French Royal Frigate - "Amphitrite"

      Brest, December 1824 - 1 January 1825. Signed manuscript chart which records and tallies the consumption of supplies used by French royal frigate Amphritite, specifically for maintenance, repair, and sea battle. Text is in French. Folio. Single leaf laid watermarked paper made by D & C Blauw, measuring 51,5 x 40 cm. Signed in the original by Lieutenant C. Laplace. A most uncommon mariner's log. This French frigate known as L'Amphitrite sailed a dangerous route between Île Bourbon (now Réunion), India, and France, transporting settlers, slaves, as well as cargo of Zanzibar cloves, coffee, and sugar. [Slavery would be abolished in Réunion 23 years later, on 20th December 1848, after which indentured workers were brought from South India, among other regions.] This chart, penned onboard the French frigate Amphitrite by an astute marine, provides unique insight into preparation for life at sea, specifically in regards to the maintenance and mechanical operations of sorts. The log itemizes supplies used for the operation and maintenance of the vessel in the month of December 1824 and surely proved valuable victualling supplies upon arrival at the vessel's next port. It is neatly organized to show materials used by each of the mariners in charge of a specific function of the ship, be it the sailmaker, the shipwright, the blacksmith or coxswain. For example, the "maître de charpentier" or shipwright uses oak planks and several types of nails, the "capitaine d'armes" or coxswain uses powder, lead and linens, the "maître de armurier" or gunsmith uses iron wire, oil, nail heads, the "maître des voiliers" or sailmaker uses a great deal of canvas and thread, and the "chef de timonerie" or wheelhouse master also makes use of canvas and drapery. The "maître forgeron" or blacksmith has not consumed any supplies. The list of items attributed to the "maître d'équipage" or boatswain (warrant officer on a warship), however, is the most substantial and includes such things as lead cork, painting oil, fishing line, 14 thicknesses of rope for masts, sails and such, heavy cable, candlesticks, 126,000 furs, 12 mallets, sewing thread, and other articles needed for rigging. An annotation to the right margin, signed by the lieutenant in charge of the work, C. Laplace, and dated 1 January 1825, indicates that the vessel was painted; her colours being black, white and green. Only a few months after this document was made, she was attacked by pirates. Off the coast of Liberia, at 4 degrees north latitude and 19 degrees west longitude, on 22 April 1825, Amphritrite was pillaged by the crew of a Colombian corsair, who took sugar, coffee, cloves, victuals, linens, beds, trunks, a large boat, and the captain's watch. They also took hostage the ship's apprentice. Historical accounts contemporary to this document record of some passengers onboard Amphitrite either departing from, or arriving at Île Bourbon (Réunion), including the following examples: L'Amphitrite - 01 September 1820 - from Saint-Denis on Île Bourbon to Nantes in France •Achille Lefèvre - Aide de camp du Gouverneur [Governor's Aide-de-camp] Note: «passager aux frais du Roi [King paid passenger's fare]» •Antoine Puissant - Négociant [Trader/Merchant] Note: «ayant avec lui le nommé Denis Moius, Indien [accompanied by an Indian man]» •François Quesnel - Médecin [Physician] L'Amphitrite - 28 November 1821 - from Saint-Denis on Île Bourbon to Nantes in France •Esthère - «Femme de couleur avec une domestique esclave nommée Fanore [Woman of colour with a domestic slave called Fanore» •Amanda - [No further detail] L'Amphitrite - 22 December 1822 - from St Denis on Île Bourbon to Mananjary in Madagascar •Arnoux - [No further detail] L'Amphitrite - 25 January 1823 - from St Denis on Île Bourbon to Calcutta in India •Eléonard Adam - Habitant [Resident] L'Amphitrite - 07 January 1826 - from St Denis on Île Bourbon to Pondicherry in India •Ernest Bartro - Négociant [Trader/Merchant] •Paul Blin - Commis négociant - [Committed Trader/Merchant] •Paul Donat - Négociant [Trader/Merchant] •Pierre Faro - «Coiffeur Indien» [Indian Hairstylist] The Annales Maritime et Coloniales vol. 21 and 25 record a frigate Amphitrite on a voyage from Bourbon to the French colonial settlement of Pondichéry (Puducherry) in September 1816, and encountering winds in the region of the Seychelles in April 1817. A total of 1376 French naval ships and frigates were launched between 1661 and 1815, with 969 different names. By tradition ships-of-the-line were given masculine names and frigates feminine ones. Unsurprisingly, names relating to the sea constituted a continuous theme; the first French ship to bear the name Océan was launched in 1756. Under Louis XIV ships were readily given names evoking their qualities and handling (Adroit, Ardent,Excellent, Léger, Prompt). These disappeared for ships of the line in the Regency but became common for frigates, reflecting their new prominence in naval tactics. Swiftness was evoked by names associated with flight (Oiseau, Hirondelle, Aigrette). Mythological names, with marine associations accounted for 145 vessels including Neptune, Néréide, Nymphe, Amphitrite, Protée, Thétis, Jason and Argonaute. No less than six different vessels bore the name Trident. Another category related to the heavens (Lune, Etoile, Vénus, Astrée, Pléide) and the winds (Aquilon, Borée, Eole, Zéphir). Marine hazards could be evoked directly (Ecueil, Orage, Tourbillon) or by mythological reference (Sirène, Méduse); so too, names associated with chance and magic, whether the vagaries of weather or the fortunes of war (Destin, Fortune, Hasard, Circé, Médée, Magicienne, Fée). Celebrated Dutch papermakers Dirk and Cornelis Blauw operated several mills, including De Herder (The Shepherd) and De Ijver (The Diligence) at Zaandjk, and De Oude Blauw (The Old Blue) at Wormeveer. However, the countermark "D & C BLAUW" has been copied and used by many different French papermakers, mainly in the 18th century and also in the 19th. En 1821, le baron Albin Reine Roussin (1781-1854) fut nommé au commandement de la frégate l'Amazone et de la station navale sur les côtes de l'Amérique méridionale. Pendant cette campagne, le capitaine Roussin fut promu au grade de contre-amiral (17 août 1822). Rentré en France le 31 décembre 1822, le rear-admiral Roussin arborait de nouveau son pavillon sur la frégate l'Amphitrite, le 6 juillet 1823. Il ne réclamait pas de repos; on trouvait tout naturel de ne pas lui en accorder. Sur l'Amphitrite et sur l'Amazone, qui lui fut bientôt rendue, coursier fidèle dont il connaissait les allures, Roussin prit part aux grandes manoeuvres de l'escadre d'évolutions rassemblée sous les ordres d'un illustre maître, le vice-amiral baron Duperré. La campagne fut courte: commencée le 6 juillet, elle se termina le 27 septembre [1823]. Au mois de juin 1824, il prit, à Brest, le commandement d'une division de l'escadre du vice-amiral Duperré, qui manoeuvra pendant trois mois dans l'océan et la Méditerranée. Le vaisseau le Trident, commandé par M. Morice, capitaine de vaisseau; les frégates l'Amphitrite, la Vestale, la Nymphe, l'Armide, et la goélette la Fauvette, sous les ordres de MM. le comte d'Oysonville, Pelleport, Cuvillier, Villaret de Joyeuse, capitaines de vaisseau, et Mauclerc, lieutenant de vaisseau, sont partis de Brest le 16 juillet 1824. M. le vice-amiral baron Duperré a son pavillon à bord du Trident, et celui du contre-amiral baron Roussin flotte à bord de l'Amphitrite. Ces bâtiments se rendent devant Cadix.

      Paris, Levrault, 1824. de (4), XXI, (3), 256 et (2) pages plein papier moderne à la bradel, dos lisse portant une pièce de titre (couvertures d'origine conservées) 1824, 1824, in-8, de (4), XXI, (3), 256 et (2) pages, plein papier moderne à la bradel, dos lisse portant une pièce de titre (couvertures d'origine conservées), Première édition, peu courante. "A ses Recherches chimiques sur les corps gras, très expérimentales et descriptives, Chevreul va donner l'année suivante un prolongement plus méthodologique avec ses Considérations sur l'analyse organique et sur ses applications (1824)" (En Français dans le texte 237). "Following the completion of his investigation of natural fats, Chevreul wrote a work of a more general nature, Considérations générales sur l'analyse organique (1824), which is a reflection on the many years of research with organic material. Here Chevreul considered the methods of research in organic chemistry, methods that he himself used with such success in his investigations. The primary analytical problems were how to determine whether one had a pure substance or a mixture and how to resolve the frequently complex animal or plant material into its immediate principles. It was Chevreul who placed this immediate analysis on a rigorous basis. He gave precise criteria for what constituted a pure organic compound and presented for the first time a clear and accurate account of the methods of immediate analysis that must necessarily precede elementary analysis."(DSB III p. 243) Malgré le cachet annulé de l'Institut Catholique de Paris et quelques rousseurs sur l'ensemble du volume, bon exemplaire grand de marges et avec ses fragiles couvertures

        Eigenh. Manuskript (Fragment). [Berlin, Herbst 1824].

      1824. 2 SS. 4to. Ein Manuskriptblatt, enthaltend einen Teil der ersten Niederschrift von Hufelands Aufsatz über die "Pockenepidemie der Jahre 1823 und 1824, nebst ihren Resultaten, besonders in Beziehung auf modificirte Pocken", der im Oktoberheft 1824 von Hufelands "Journal der practischen Heilkunde" (S. 3ff.) erschien. Die hier vorliegenden Abschnitte wurden noch einer weiteren Revision unterzogen, entsprechen aber weitestgehend dem S. 9-10 und 12-13 abgedruckten Text: "[Am vierten Tage entdecke ich rothe] Flecken, die sich bald als Stigmata variolarum zeigten, die sich dann auch auf die Hände, und am folgenden Tage auf den ganzen übrigen Körper verbreiteten. Genug, es wurde eine sehr heftige Pockenkrankheit, die der Kranke nur mit Mühe überstand [...] Auch bey der jetzigen Epidemie bestätigte sich jene Wahrheit vollkommen. / Die ganze Epidemie wurde über See durch einen Pockenkranken nach Hamburg gebracht, und von da durch einen Handwerksburschen im December nach Berlin [...] Es ist in der That merkwürdig für einen, der eine lange Reihe von Jahren Beobachter des menschlichen Wirkens und Treibens gewesen ist, zu sehen, wie die Vorurtheile der frühern Zeit nur unter veränderter Gestalt sich immer wieder einschleichen [...] Und immer ist es derselbe Kampf [...]". - Mit umfangreichen Streichungen, Einschüben und Überarbeitungen. Das Blatt oben rechts recto alt in Rötelstift numeriert "3". Mittig quer gefaltet.

        Observations cliniques propres à éclairer certaines questions relatives à l'aliénation mentale : thèse de doctorat de médecine

      Paris, Didot 1824 - In-4° broché, cartonnage d'attente moderne souple, pièce de titre contrecollée, 19 pages. Thèse de doctorat de médecine du grand aliéniste qui dédie cette thèse à Esquirol, Ferrus, Pinel et Rostan. PERFECT COPY LIKE NEW - - -- Achille-Louis Foville (6 August 1799 - 22 June 1878) was a French neurologist and psychiatrist. He produced the first description of the terminal stria - Foville was born in Pontoise, France and received his medical doctorate in 1824, after studying medicine under Léon Louis Rostan and Jean Étienne Dominique Esquirol at Pitié-Salpêtrière Hospital. His medical thesis argued mental illness may be curable, discussing some treatments of the day and their apparent effectiveness. The next year, he was made the medical superintendent of the Saint-Yon asylum in Rouen. During his time there he published several papers on disorders of the nervous system which were well received. His son Achille-Louis-François Foville was born in 1831.[1] He remained at the asylum until 1833, when ill health forced his resignation. Foville spent time travelling abroad, to Africa and America. He returned to France, settling in Paris. After the death of his former teacher Esquirol in 1840, Foville was made a professor at Charenton. Until the appointment Thomas Hodgkin had been attempting to open a facility for the treatment of mental illnesses to compete with the York Retreat. With Foville's appointment to Charenton, he was no longer willing to relocate to England, and Hodgkin dropped the project, feeling no other doctors were suitable to run the facility. The French Revolution of 1848 cost him his job at Charenton, and Foville took up private practice in Paris. He practised medicine in Paris, treating mental disorders, until 1868, when he retired. He moved to Toulouse after his retirement, where he died in 1878.[3] Works[edit] Illustration from Traité complet de l'anatomie In 1844 Foville published Traité complet de l'anatomie, de la physiologie et de la pathologie du système nerveux cérébro-spinal on the anatomy of the nervous system of the spinal cord, regarded as one of the best works on the subject prior to the invention of the microscope.[2] [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
