        In Japanese] Oginoryu Tama Ageya Yagyocho.

      - np. [18th century?]. Manuscript of 14 double folded leaves, string tied, 235x165mm, being 27 pages of text including the title (last page blank) in neat brush and ink. A few drawings and diagrams through the text. I'm at a bit of a loss here, being some distance from a Japanese translator, but confident in my experience of Japanese fireworks manuscripts - this is my second after all - I'll tell you what I know and what I guess. The Romaji transcription was given to me by the Japanese seller along with the date of c1750 and I find no reason to doubt either. The Ogin-ryu was a gunnery school - their fire arms get mentioned in antique gun circles - and that's all I can discover about it. This isn't a workman's manuscript recipe book, it is all too neat and laid out; it makes sense that it is a textbook, presumably more explosive than recreational - though there is a spiral diagram and a neat little fish (?) at the end. The first printed Japanese book on fireworks (Risho) was not published until 1825, though there are plenty of woodcut prints, and little else was printed until the twentieth century; the secrets of fireworks, like most trades, were handed on in manuscript books like this.

But the work, by the great biographer's nephew, is a fiction anyway. Very scarce.

Tafeln, Ledereinband der Zeit; Rücken erneuert, minimal fleckig; sehr gutes Exemplar.. Selten - Zweite um Anhänge erweitere Ausgabe ! - - Eines der schönsten, farbigen Abbildungswerke der Medizin überhaupt. Ein "Opus Magnum" der Dermatologie. Dieses berühmteste und umfangreichste Werk von Baron Jean Louis Alibert (1768-1837) bringt auf seinen 63 luxuriös ausgestatteten Farbtafeln eine umfassende Beschreibung der Hautkrankheiten. Das kostbare Werk ist mit einmalig schönen Bildnissen geschmückt, das Handcolorit ist zart und zurückhaltend. Durch die Beifügung der Accessoires des täglichen Lebens wurde den Abbildungen eine nie wieder erreichte Realistik verliehen. Das Charakteristische der Effloreszenzen ist auf jedem Quadratzentimeter eines Blattes minutiös herausgearbeitet. - - Der Text ist klar gegliedert. Das "Hopital St.Louis", im Norden von Paris, wurde 1607 von König Henri IV gegründet. Es war zunächst ein Pesthaus, ab 1791 wurde es ein allgemeines Krankenhaus. Alibert gelang 1800 der Institution einen großen Namen zu verschaffen. Aus der Arbeit mit der Vielzahl chronisch Kranker konnte Alibert seine immense klinische Erfahrung gewinnen. Sein Unterricht war beispielhaft und er gilt als der Erstbeschreiber des Keloids, der Mycosis fungoides, der Akromegalie, sowie der Sklerodermie. - - Die Tafelwerke brachten ihm großes Ansehen und Ehre ein. Nach der Restauration erhielt er noch den Leibarztposten bei Ludwig XVIII. - "Durch die Abbildungen der Krankheitsveränderungen wollte ich jene Eindrücke fixieren die später für den Pathologen wertvoll sein konnten, wollte durch die schockierenden (effrayantes) Farben des Malers den ärztlichen Blick schulen; ich versuchte den Charakter der Krankheiten besser und genauer herauszuarbeiten und ihre kleinsten Nuancen festzuhalten; kurz ich wollte die Sinne meiner Leser aufpeitschen (frapper), um vor ihnen die verschiedenen Phänomene wieder lebendig werden zu lassen, welche meine Augen in Erstaunen versetzten."(Alibert) - - "Seine Maler Vaviel und Maurice betreute er sorgsam, wies sie auf das Typische und auf leicht übersehbare Details hin. Da meist fortgeschrittene Ausprägungen der Krankheiten zur Reproduktion ausgewählt wurden, war deren Arbeit nicht angenehm. Als der Maler eines Leprakranken mit Lungengangrän den fötiden Atemgeruch nicht mehr aushalten konnte, zerstäubte Alibert ständig Essig während der fünf Tage der Bildfertigung." - "Der Gesichtsausdruck spiegelt die psychische Situtation des Kranken einfühlsam wieder. (...) Noch heute erfreuen die Akkuratesse der Zeichnung, die Ausgewogenheit und Natürlichkeit der Farbgebung, vor allem die Genauigkeit der Darstellung des pathischen Substrates. Sein Werk bedeutet für die Krankenabbildung eine einmalige Pioniertat. Die meisterhaften Tafeln gaben eine Norm. Nachhaltig beeinflußte Alibert sein dermatologisches Fachgebiet, in allen Tafelwerken des Jahrhunderts." Vogt, Das Bild des Kranken, p.51. - - Rare, enlarged second French Edition! The most spectacular of the early classics in dermatology, with hand-colored illustrations unsurpassed for their quality of execution, if not for their aesthetic appeal. The first-class illustrations were produced about 160 years ago and are not only the equal of modern colour photographs, and they deliberately emphasized characteristics to the diseases illustrated. This book, one of the finest works of its kind, was produced at great expense. Most of the splendid, delicately hand-coloured engravings were drawn by Moreau-Valville and engraved by Tresca. These illustrations are life-size or near life-size, and are of great clarity. Jean-Louis- Marc, le Baron Alibert (1768-1837), was made physician for skin diseases in 1803, and the first to systematically teach dermatology in France. He introduced the first natural method of classifying skin diseases. He was the first to describe mycosis fungoides, keloid, etc., and introduced many new terms, such as "syphilides", "dermatoses", "dermatolysis", etc. - - Ehring, Hautkrankheiten, p.107; Garrison, History of Medicine, pp.417ff.; Pusey, The Hist. of Dermatology, p.74-78; Shelley-Crisey, Classics in Dermatology, p.31f.; Richter, Geschichte der Dermatologie, p.201 f.

Er arbeitete zusammen mit seinem Schwager Charles Bell (1774-1842) in der 'Windmill Street School' in London. Trotz seiner nur kurz bemessenen Lebenszeit hat er eine Reihe ausgezeichneter Bücher verfaßt, deren Lektüre sich heute noch lohnt ... Die Gebiete welche Shaw gefördert hat, sind mannigfaltig: er vermutete (als Erster) den Sitz der poliomyelitischen Lähmung im Zentralnervensystem, unterschied sehr genau zwischen Gibbus infolge Zerstörung der Wirbel (Caries) und Skoliose, erkannte die Anklylosenbildung, die nicht zu stören, sondern zu unterstützen sei. Schon früh setze er sich ein für Gymnastik, Übungen, und Massage bei Skoliosen als eine erwünschte Ausheilung.
