        The Journal of an Exile.

      Printed for Saunders and Otley 1825 - FIRST EDITION, 2 vols., a few spots and minor stains here and there, pp. [ii], 330;[ ii], 328, [2, ads], 8vo, contemporary half calf, spines gilt, twin red lettering pieces, very good Not in Pine-Coffin, and not strictly an Italian tour: but it is typical of Neil Ritchie's acumen and assiduity that he should have acquired these volumes. The book is mainly about the author's peregrinations in the hinterland of Marseilles, but, right at the end, he journeys into Piedmont. But the work, by the great biographer's nephew, is a fiction anyway. Very scarce.

        Description des maladies de la peau, obervees a L'Hospital Saint-Louis et exposition des meilleurs methodes suives pour le leur traitement. 2 vols.

      . Deuxieme edition, enrichie d'appendices. - Bruexelles, Auguste Wahle, 1825, Kl.-Folio, (2) ff., XLIX, 319 pp.; (2) ff., 584 pp.; 56 handcolor. farblith. 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.

        Nicholas Vincent Tsawanhonhi, principal christian chief, and captain of the Huron indians

      [London]: Printed by C. Hullmandel, 1825. Hand-coloured lithograph. Rare and very desirable hand-coloured lithograph of the Huron chief, Nicholas Vincent Tsawanhonhi, drawn from an original painting by Edward Chatfield. We can find only two copies of this print, one in the Winkworth Collection at the National Archives of Canada, and another at Yale. In this image Chief Tsawanhonhi is pictured in his native dress, as he was when presented with three other Huron chiefs to King George IV of Great Britain on April 7, 1825. Tsawanhonhi holds a piece of wampum in his right hand, and the long decorative collar bears the image of a tomahawk presented to him by the late George III. He is shown in a wilderness setting, and wears a royal gift around his neck, a large gold medal given to him by George IV. The print was executed after an original painting by Edward Chatfield, a young and talented pupil of Benjamin Robert Haydon, a painter of historical scenes who supplemented his income with portrait painting. The lithographer, Charles Joseph Hullmandel was born in London in 1789 and is one of the great names in British lithography, contributing a number of important early innovations in the process of lithography. Nicolas Vincent, called 'Tsaouenhohoui' but spelled 'Tsawanhonhi' on this print, was born in 1769 in Jeune-Lorette. He was the son of Louis Vincent, called 'Sawantanan', and Louise Martin, also known as 'Thodatowan'. Tsawanhonhi was named War Chief in 1803, and went on to become Grand Chief of the Huron-Wendat Nation in 1810. During his leadership of the tribe he embarked on a long process of land claims that took him to England in 1825, where he presented the grievances of his people to King George IV. He also had to face the numerous problems caused by colonization, including logging within the borders of the lands the Hurons-Wendat needed for subsistence. Tsawanhonhi was the first Indian to speak to the members of the Assembly of Lower Canada, and at the request of colonial authorities in 1829 he drew the map known as the 'Vincent Plan', identifying a portion of the hunting lands used by his compatriots. He died on November 1, 1844 at the age of seventy-five.

Indem ich Sie um die Besorgung einer genauen Correctur ersuche, füge ich hinzu, daß man in Sachsen einige orthographische, ganz unnöthige, Eigenheiten beobachtet, die man dann gewöhnlich bei der Correktur dem Autor verbessert, oder vielmehr verschlechtert. So wird das Wort versiechen gewöhnlich versiegen geschrieben, als ob es von Sieg anstatt von Siech herkäme.

Small book-tickets of Mr. H. Hottinguer to the front pastedowns.

        Neue Beiträge zur Kenntniss des Sehens in subjectiver Hinsicht. Vom Dr. J. Purkinje, Professor der Medicin zu Breslau. (Mit vier teilcolor. Kupfertafeln) (pp.3-83; 199-276; 391-423).

      . Rust's Magazin, 20. - Berlin, Georg Reimer, 1825, 8°, X, 583, (1) pp., 5 Kupfertafeln, feiner Halbledereinband der Zeit.. Erste Ausgabe der im gleichen Jahr in Buchform erschienen Beobachtungen und Versuche zur Physiolgie der Sinne. Neue Beiträge zur Kenntnis des Sehens in subjectiver Hinsicht." (Berlin 1825) - "In Breslau setzte Jan Envangelista Purkyne (1787-1869) in den ersten Jahren seine Studien des Sehens in subjektiver Hinsicht fort, die er in Prag so viel versprechend neben den bereits erwähnten Untersuchungen der Wirkung von Arzneimitteln und über das Schwindelphänomen begonnen hatte. Er faßte sie im zweiten Teil der "Beiträge zur Kenntnis des Sehens in subjektiver Hinsicht", der in Berlin im Jahre 1825 erschien, zusammen. Von dem Buch kann gesagt werden, daß es an Klarheit der Darstellung sowie an Fülle neuer wichtiger Tatsachen den ersten Teil noch übertrifft. - So wie alle Arbeiten Purkynes ist auch diese knapp und konzis geschrieben, dennoch hat sie fast den dreifachen Umfang seiner Doktordisseratation "Beiträge zur Kenntnis des Sehens in subjectiver Hinsicht" aus dem Jahre 1818. Purkyne ergänzt, präzisiert und erweitert hier einerseits seine früheren Untersuchungen, was zum Beispiel gleich aus dem 2. Kapitel über galvanische Gesichtswahrnehmungen hervorgeht, anderseits bringt er aber auch neue Beobachtungen und Entdeckungen. Erwähnung verdient zum Beispiel die Verdunkelung und Rötung des Gesichtsfelds, die durch elektrischen Strom hervorgerufen wird, wenn man die Kathode am Augapfel anlegt, und die Aufhellung mit bläulicher Verfärbung bei Reizung durch einen Strom in umgekehrter Richtung; sodann eine genaue Schilderung der sogenannten galvanischen Figuren, die Bestimmung des Umfangs des Gesichtsfelds für die einzelnen Farben, die Entdeckung der physiologischen Farbenblindheit der peripheren Netzhautregionen, die Beschreibung der relativen Heiligkeit von Farbflächen bei schwacher Beleuchtung (das Purkynesche Phänomen), genaue Beobachtung und Beschreibung von Nachbildern, entoptische Phänomene bei Vergiftung mit Digitalis und Belladonna sowie viele andere Entdeckungen, die in dieser kurzen Übersicht leider nicht alle aufgezählt werden können. Es ist interessant, daß Purkyne als erster auf die physiologische Farbenblindheit in den peripheren Zonen des Gesichtsfelds aufmerksam machte, eine Erscheinung, die, wie Hirschberg erwähnt, seit Jahrtausenden übersehen wurde." V.Kruta, Der Gelehrte und sein Schaffen, pp.60-62 - - "Purkyne phenomenon" or "Purkyne shift", a change in the apparent relative luminosity of colours in a dim light (scotopic vision) compared with that in full daylight (photopic vision)." - "Using himself as the subject of his experiments, Purkyne studied such visual sensations as the figures produced by strong intermittent illumination, galvanic Stimulus or pressure on the eyeball; the image of one's own retinal vessels ("Purkyne's tree") produced when their shadows fall on neighboring sensitive Clements; and the change in apparent luminosity of colors in dim light as compared to full daylight ("Purkyne shift"). He also discovered the physiological inability of the peripheral parts of the retina to distinguish colors, described the visual effects of various drugs, and proposed some original methods of measuring the physical properties of the visual Organs-some of which were later developed, and are still in use. Although several of Purkyne's contemporaries, particularly Goethe, had made similar observations of subjective visual phenomena, Purkyne was the first to recognize that these were not random exceptions to natural law, but rather correspondents to objective physiological processes. This "Zweites Bändchen" of Purkyne's observations followed the "Erstes Bändchen" of 1823, which consisted of an unchanged reprint of Purkyne's inaugural dissertation (Prag 1819)."

        ALS - Eigenhändiger Brief mit Unterschrift.

      . München (um den 15.) VII.1825; Eingangsstempel: Frankfurt a.M. 17.VII.1825. 1 Seite gr.-4°. Mit papiergedecktem Wappensiegel und Adresse. Schwach gebräunt, kleine Randläsuren, wenige Flecke.. Joseph Ritter von Fraunhofer (1787-1826), Optiker und Physiker, Pionier der wissenschaftlichen Optik, entdeckte die nach ihm benannten Linien im Sonnenspektrum. - "Selten sind wissenschaftliche Forschung und technisch-wirtschaftlicher Fortschritt so mit einer einzigen Person verbunden wie bei Fraunhofer" (Adolf Wißner in der NDB). - - An den Mediziner und Naturforscher Samuel Thomas von Soemmerring in Frankfurt a.M., dem er eingangs den Erhalt eines Wechsels über 117 Gulden - vermutlich für den Kauf eines optischen Instruments - bestätigt. Im Folgenden kündigt er seine "Theorie der Höfe, Nebensonnen und verwandte Phänomene mit Versuchen zur Bestätigung derselben" (erschienen in Schumachers Astronomische Nachrichten, 1825, Heft 3) an und klagt über seine Verpflichtungen an der Akademie, die ihm die Zeit für Experimente raube. - - "... Meine Abhandlung: Theorie der Höfe und Nebensonnen, ist bisjetzt noch nicht gedruckt. Hr. Schumacher wartet mit dem Druck der ihm zugesendeten Abhandlungen gewöhnlich so lange, bis er deren mehrere hat, um ein Heft voll zu machen. So wie sie gedruckt ist werde ich mir die Freyheit nehmen Ihnen ein Exemplar zuzusenden. Für den Antheil welchen Sie an meinen Arbeiten nehmen danke ich Ihnen verbindlichst. Meine physikalisch optischen Versuche fortzusetzen finde ich noch immer keine Zeit; weil ich jene Zeit welche ich sonst darauf verwendete gegenwärtig zu Vorlesungen von Seite der Akademie etc. verwenden muß. Dieses fällt mir um so schwerer, da die Zeit auf diese Weise verdorben zu sein scheint und ich bisjetzt auf diesem Wege nichts genützt zu haben glaube und auch niemals nützen werde. - - Der Hr. geh. Rath v. Moll ist, wie Sie wahrscheinlich schon wissen werden, seit längerer Zeit ernstlich unpäßlich. Er hat Urlaub genommen und lebt in Dachau. Hrn. geh. R. v. Weiler sind auch die Geschäfte des Secretärs der mathem. phys. Classe der Akad. übertragen. Ich habe gar keine Hoffnung daß es bey unserer Akademie je wieder besser gehe; wohl aber Gründe genug zu fürchten daß es noch schlimmer werde. - - Gruituisen hat sich auf längere Zeit verreist. Man sagt hier er habe die Absicht nach Dorpat zu reisen um dort mit dem großen Refractor den Mond beobachten zu können. Der Himmel möge dieses verhüten! ..." - Am Schluss eine Empfehlung an Soemmerrings Sohn, den Arzt Detmar Wilhelm S. (1793-1871). - - Bei den erwähnten Akademikern handelt es sich um den Physiker und Mineralogen Karl von Moll (1760-1838) und den Philosophen und Pädagogen Cajetan von Weiller (1761-1826). Der Arzt und Astronom Franz von Paula Gruithuisen (1774-1852) wurde nach der Rückkehr von seinen ausgedehnten wissenschaftlichen Reisen 1826 als a.o. Professor für Astronomie an die Münchener Universität berufen. - - Briefe von Fraunhofer, zumal solche mit wissenschaftlichen Bezügen, sind sehr selten im Handel.
