First edition of Disraeli's first novel, a "sensational roman-à-clef in the then fashionable silver-fork style" published at the age of 21 (ODNB). The first section was published anonymously in two volumes in April 1826 to largely disfavourable reviews, despite its public popularity, due to its "combination of unmistakable self-exposure and reckless satire. moreover, Murray and Lockhart, men of great influence in literary circles, were deeply offended by the sneering treatment of characters based on them" (ibid.). Bound at the end of the final volume is the anonymous Key to Vivian Grey (10th ed., William Marsh, 1827), complete with original paper wrapper. This guide to the novel first appeared in the journal The Star Chamber on 24 May 1826. Many believe it was also written by Disraeli. Sadlier 734 & 734a; Wolff 1846. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Considerations on the state of the currency.

      London: John Murray 1826 - 8vo., iv + 128 + (2) + 129 - 152pp., title and one or two preliminary pages a little foxed, bound in the late 20th century in plain boards with handwritten title label on upper cover. A very good copy. First edition. Tooke's detailed examination of the causes which might affect prices. He concluded that price variations were due to circumstances directly connected with the commodities themselves, and not to alterations in the quantity of money. 'The work was at first meant as a sequel to the first part of the High and Low Prices>, published 1822, but he afterwards devoted it more especially to the consideration of the events between that date and 1826. He argues that the Bank ought to have unloaded, at any rate the greater part of, the 'Dead Weight Annuity' as soon as the increased issues for payment upon the purchases produced a bad effect on the exchanges, or to have raised the rate as a means of decreasing the redundant issue. Also that the non-publication of the Bank's accounts introduced too large an element of uncertainty, and suggests the obvious remedy. The greatest evils, however, were the precarious state of the country issues. 'Every country Banker ought to be called upon to give some pledge of his ability to pay on demand the Notes which he may be permitted to issue'. Further, 'there is one part of that circulation which ought not upon any footing or with any modification to be any longer tolerated. I mean the Notes under £5'. Some Country Banks grumbled if the public asked for gold; he rightly says: 'If there is any feeling of the harshness of demanding coin for the Notes of a Bank, such Notes are more or less imperfectly convertible'.'

Taf. mit 8 Abb.).Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach had already expressed the idea of closing palatal defects by mobilizing the edges of the bony defect (1826) in his translation of Ph. J. Roux's 'Mémoire sur la staphyloraphie' (1825)." "In 1826 Dieffenbach published his method for repair of clefts of the hard palate, thus extending the techniques of Joseph Roux (1780-1854) and von Graefe, who had treated defects of the soft palate. Dieffenbach was obviously familiar with von Graefe's work and also with that of Roux, whose articles he had translated into German medical literature. Dieffenbach's palatoplasty involved dissection of the mucosa, division, and immediate or gradual approximation of the bone by twisting silver or lead sutures passed through holes in the bone by needles of his design. He advised lateral relaxing incisions in 1826, but did not employ them until 1828." Robert M. Goldwyn Roux's "suture, probably a precursor of Veau's wire suture, was undoubtedly an advance. However, it produced severe, painful tension, which may have threatened the suture line in the sutured soft palate - particularly in patients with broad clefts. This changed with Dieffenbach's introduction of the lateral relaxation incision." "Dieffenbach also carried out the first attempt of total reconstruction of an almost completely absent soft palate from the buccal mucosa. This attempt failed, and a repetition of this operation, which was planned, did not take place." "Dieffenbach was an excellent observer. He had observed the stimulating effect of palates which bridged residual defects, and of obturators. He also noted that, in the course of time, the stimulating effect (in combination with the use of Cantharides-tincture) produced closure of residual openings as wide as a finger." Thorough as he was, Dieffenbach extensively studied the anatomical structures, including their comparative anatomy and their variations, to be able to arrive at conclusions on the basis of their functional effects he investigated also the problem of the development of cleft formation in embryos. With his friend Kleeberg, from Königsberg, he arrived at correct concepts regarding the time of cleft development, as well as its character as an inhibition-malformation of the palatine processes which had failed to unite." "Later, he also observed the favourable effect of staphylorraphy on decreased hearing. He was convinced that he cured patients who were deaf." cf. Eduard SchmidWeitere enthaltene Arbeiten von J.F. Dieffenbach:3) Die abgeänderte umschlungene Naht als schnelles Heilmittel bei Gesichtswunden (1927: pp.129-141)."Früheste Empfehlung der umschlungenen Naht mit Carlsbader Insektennadeln. Am Schluss dieses Aufsatzes fragt Dieffenbach, ob dieser Naht nicht bei Rhinoplastik, namentlich bei der deutschen Methode, mit Nutzen anwendbar sein sollte. An derselben Stelle machte er den Vorschlag, den vorderen Nasentheil, mindesten die Nasenflügel, aus der Oberlippe zu bilden, nicht etwas blos um Substanz zu gewinnen, als besonders um Nasenflügel zu bekommen, deren Ränder und äussere und innere Fläche behäutet ist". Zeis Nr. 511a "The earliest recommendation of the twisted suture with the 'Carlsbad insect needles'. At the end of this essay (p.141) Dieffenbach asks whether this type of suture could not be used in rhinoplasty, particularly in the German method. He also makes the suggestion that the upper lip should be used in the anterior part of the nose, at least for the ale, not only to gain extra tissue, but especially so that the alae would be covered with skin inside and out. This essay stems from the earlies time at which Dieffenbach began to take an interest in plastic surgery."

         [Cover title] Fragments relating to Travels in Mesopotamia, and the Trial for Libel, Buckingham versus Bankes.

      London: various publishers,, 1826-7. 3 works in one volume, octavo (209 x 130 mm). Original green linen, printed paper labels to spine and front board. 27 leaves of chapter headings with wood-engraved vignettes. Spine and board-edges sunned, label rubbed, superficial, partial splitting along joints, sometime repaired at the head of the spine, occasional light foxing. Very good. Self-exculpatory collection of fragments issued personally by Middle Eastern traveller Buckingham following his successful libel action against erstwhile travelling companion William John Bankes in 1826. Extremely uncommon, with no copies located in institutions, and one similar volume, inscribed to Nicholas Robinson, lord mayor of Liverpool from 1828 to 1829, traced in commerce: evidently Buckingham had the texts bound up for private distribution among influential individuals, as his feud with the East India Company over the forcible closure of his anti-HEIC Calcutta Journal in 1823 remained unresolved. The first text consists of the preliminary matter, vignette chapter headings and appendix from the octavo edition of his Travels in Mesopotamia (1827), though with various small changes, to the pagination and so forth, indicating that the types had been at least partially reset; the second text, entitled Opinions of Reviewers on the Travels in Mesopotamia, by J. S. Buckingham, is otherwise traced only in an 1870 edition of the catalogue of the Library of the Norfolk and Norwich Literary Institution; the third is the Verbatim Report of the Action for Libel in the Case of Buckingham versus Bankes […] (London: Cheese, Gordon, and Co., 1826), the only one of these texts which appears to have been publicly printed. Buckingham (1786-1855) spent much of his early life as a merchant sailor. Between 1813 and 1814 he travelled in Egypt, meeting Muhammad Ali Pasha, who despatched him to Bombay to develop trade with India, where he accepted a commission from the Imam of Muscat, but was forced to return to Egypt by the East India Company. From Cairo he travelled overland to India, where in 1818 he established his anti-HEIC Calcutta Journal, which resulted in his permanent expulsion five years later. His journey through the Middle East furnished the materials for a series of travel narratives published partly to fund legal battles in defence of his character. The first of these was Travels in Palestine, published in 1821, part of which Bankes, his partner on that leg of his travels, claimed to have been plagiarised from his notebook. On 25 October 1826 Buckingham was finally awarded £400 for libel, though he tendentiously claimed in the Appendix to his Travels in Mesopotamia, reprinted here, that his Indian assets were confiscated owing to the damage done to his reputation by Bankes, rather than by his own conduct as editor of the Calcutta Journal; after many years he was eventually granted an East India Company pension of £200 a year. An intriguing document from the career of a traveller who "spent far longer in the Arab world than most other occasional visitors" (Hamilton, The Arcadian Library, p. 96).

Oberon, to a libretto by James Robinson Planché after Christoph Martin Wieland's poem Oberon, was first performed in London at Convent Garden on April 12, 1826. "The première... was a great success, with lavish settings and spectacular scenic effects that impressed even Weber, and the opera remained popular throughout the season... [It contains some of Weber's most delightful music, which has assured the work a permanent, if peripheral, place in the repertory... The brilliant overture opens atmospherically with Oberon's horn-call, which acts as a motif throughout the work." "With the overwhelming success of his opera Der Freischütz in 1821 [Weber] became the leading exponent of German opera in the 1820s and an international celebrity. A seminal figure of the 19th century, he influenced composers as diverse as Marschner, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Meyerbeer, Berlioz, and Liszt."

Oberon, to a libretto by James Robinson Planché after Christoph Martin Wieland's poem Oberon, was first performed in London at Convent Garden on April 12, 1826. "The première. was a great success, with lavish settings and spectacular scenic effects that impressed even Weber, and the opera remained popular throughout the season. [The opera] contains some of Weber's most delightful music, which has assured the work a permanent, if peripheral, place in the repertory. The brilliant overture opens atmospherically with Oberon's horn-call, which acts as a motif throughout the work." "With the overwhelming success of his opera Der Freischütz in 1821 [Weber] became the leading exponent of German opera in the 1820s and an international celebrity. A seminal figure of the 19th century, he influenced composers as diverse as Marschner, Mendelssohn, Wagner, Meyerbeer, Berlioz, and Liszt." Paul Corneilson, Clive Brown, et al. in Grove Music Online.

         Vivian Grey. [And:] Key to Vivian Grey. Tenth edition.

      London: Henry Colburn; [and] William Marsh, 1826–7 - 5 volumes, large duodecimo (198 x 120 mm). Contemporary brown half morocco, spines lettered in gilt, marbled paper sides and endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed. Bookplate to front pastedowns. Short closed tear to vol II, another to vol. III, expertly repaired. Slight wear to extremities, light foxing to edges, small abrasion to half-title of vol. II; an excellent set. Half-titles to vols. II and V; as issued. Bound without ads. Key to Vivian Grey complete with the half-title and single advertisement leaf. First edition of Disraeli's first novel, a "sensational roman-à-clef in the then fashionable silver-fork style" published at the age of 21 (ODNB). The first section was published anonymously in two volumes in April 1826 to largely disfavourable reviews, despite its public popularity, due to its "combination of unmistakable self-exposure and reckless satire . moreover, Murray and Lockhart, men of great influence in literary circles, were deeply offended by the sneering treatment of characters based on them" (ibid.). In 1853 Disraeli took advantage of his fame "to bring out a shilling edition of his novels (including a drastically revised Vivian Grey); this sold 300,000 copies in a year" (ibid.). Bound into volume V is the Key to Vivian Grey complete with the original paper wrapper. This anonymous guide first appeared in the journal The Star Chamber on the 24 May 1826. Many believe it was also written by Disraeli due to its insight into which high society figures inspired which characters. With the 20th-century bookplate of Robert Hayhurst, Lancashire retail chemist and bibliophile, to the front free endpaper of vol. I. Hayhurst was a discriminating collector of 18th-century literature in well-preserved contemporary bindings. Sadlier 734 & 734a; Wolff 1846. [Attributes: First Edition]
