      Printed for Geo. B. Whittaker, (and others), London 1826 - Fourth edition, corrected and improved. Issued in three volumes: two of text and one of plates this is the Plate Volume Only. Full contemporary red crushed calf, ruled and titled in gilt. 63 plates, mostly folding. Darkening to the boards, considerable rubbing to the joints and foxing, mostly to the margins of the plates, still a sound, good copy. Mathematician Joseph Ray's copy, with his ownership Signature: "Joseph Ray, M.D. Woodward High School, Cincinnati, [date indecipherable]. 2 volumes & plates, $15.25." Ray was a professor of mathematics and wrote several books on the subject, beginning in 1834 with An Introduction to Ray's Eclectic Arithmetic, the first of a series of six textbooks which became the most popular and widely used American mathematics textbooks of the 19th Century. They also formed the basis for Ray's Mathematical Series of textbooks. As late as 1913, annual sales exceeded a quarter of a million copies a year, and total sales of his arithmetic books alone are estimated at 120 million copies. The success of Ray's Arithmetic series prompted his publisher to seek an author for a corresponding set of readers. They chose William Holmes McGuffey, who joined Ray on the faculty of Woodward College, and where he wrote the McGuffey Readers which surpassed even Ray's Arithmetics to become the most popular textbooks ever written.

        Scenery, costumes and architecture, chiefly on the Western Side of India.

      London R. Ackermann & Smith Elder -1827-1829 1826 - First edition. 6 parts bound in 3 as issued, folio (42 x 33 cm approx.), uncut in original boards, engraved title with hand-coloured vignette dated 1826 published by Ackermann, lithograph title to Vol II with engraved vignette on India paper, text watermarked 1826-29, 36 fine hand-coloured aquatint plates with Smith Elder imprint, scattered light foxing, the 5 divisional titles, original wrapper at end with list of plates, tipped-in to third part is a slip stating that parts V and VI are coloured by D. Smith, 29, Church Street Soho, occasional light spotting, black morocco spines and corners over original printed boards, the third volume with new leather and the lower board supplied to match, preserved in a modern clamshell box, an excellent set. The colouring is of a very high standard, possibly coloured under Grindlay's supervision. Grindlay, a self-taught amateur artist, went to India in 1803, aged 17. He served with the East India Company's military service from 1804-1820 and during this period made a large number of sketches and drawings recording the life and landscape of India. "Next to Daniell, the most attractive colour plate book on India." - Tooley. This work was begun by Ackermann but taken over and completed by Smith Elder. Ackermann's gloom at the prospects of the book seems to have been unfounded as it became extremely popular in the hands of Smith Elder and the plates are generally acknowledged to be some of the most beautiful of India.

        Paesaggi in Tavola, giudicati di Claudio Gelée con il testo di Giuseppe Antonio Guattani,

      Nella Stamperia di Filippo e Nicola de Romani,, Roma, 1826 - In folio; (28) pp. e 10 magnifiche c. di tav. fuori testo in sanguigna opera di Claude Lorraine (Claudio di Lorena) ed incise da L. Carracciolo. Legatura coeva in mezza-tela con piatti foderati con bella carta marmorizzata. Antica firma d'appartenenza privata al margine basso del frontespizio. Qualche macchiolina di foxing, fra l’altro meno intense che negli altri, pochi, tipiche dell’opera, causate dalla qualità utilizzata nella stampa ma nel complesso esemplare in buone condizioni di conservazione. Titolo manoscritto su fascetta al piatto anteriore. Prima ed unica edizione di questo magnifico volume che illustra questa raccolta di 10 magnifiche tavole. Le tavole sono minuziosamente descritte da dal celebre archeologo, scrittore, musicista, professore di Storia e di Mitologia, Giuseppe Antonio Guattani (Roma, 18 settembre 1748 – Roma, 29 dicembre 1830), che di illustri natali (il padre fu medico personale di tre pontefici), fu a lungo segretario perpetuo dell'Accademia di Belle Arti e dell'Accademia di Archeologia di Roma. A lui si deve una celebre descrizione dei monumenti romani. In quest’opera, il testo di Guattani affianca le 10 magnifiche tavole del grande pittore francese Claude Gellée (o Gelée) detto Lorrain, o anche Claudio Lorenese (Chamagne, 16 dicembre 1600 – Roma, 23 novembre 1682), che fu a lungo attivo a Roma e che insieme a Nicolas Poussin, è considerato il maestro del genere del paesaggio ideale. Lorraine elaborò la sua estetica sull’interpretazione classicistica della natura operata dai grandi pittori bolognesi, Annibale Carracci e Domenichino. Guattani racconta "Dieci tavole colorite a Tempera dall’immortale Claudio Lorenese sono state acquistate dal Sig.r Carlo Trebbj negoziante di oggetti d’arte in Roma. Così bella Decade ne sembra un tesoro per l’Arte del Paesaggio, formando una serie di Claudj, dove il trovarne uno a gran fortuna reca ". La tavola con "Lotta in un Parco di Londra" riprende una scena di pugilato "Richiama tal combattimento l’antico Pugillato che Cesto non fosse; il quale esercizio non già esclusivamente, ma come in propria sede fiorisce tutt’ora nella Gran Bretagna, fino ad esserne scuola e maestranza". Guattani, individua poi nelle seguenti tavole, un’ispirazione dalla Gerusalemme Liberata di Torquato Tasso, assegnando ad ognuna un titolo. Si vedono così le tavole: Erminia che dorme; Erminia ed il Pastore; Erminia alla Capanna; Si disegna il viaggio di Carlo e di Ubaldo; Carlo, Ubaldo ed il Mago; Ancelle di Armida con offerte; Armida con Ancelle Danzanti; Armida lascia per momenti Rinaldo; Liberazione di Rinaldo. Molto raro. Rif. Bibl.: IT\ICCU\LO1E\002623.

        Voyage autour du monde, éxécuté par ordre du Roi. sur la Corvette. La Coquille, pendant les années 1822, 1823, 1824 et 1825 . histoire du voyage.

      Paris Arthus Bertrand 1826 - Atlas volume only, folio (47.2 x 31cm). Engraved title and 60 plates, by Ambroise Tardieu after Duperrey, Lejeune and Chazal, all but one finely hand-coloured; light scattered spotting, heavier on title. Contemporary half calf over blue paper-covered boards, gilt spine, an excellent example. The finely coloured atlas of the rarest and most beautiful of the grand voyages. Born in 1786, Duperrey joined the navy in 1802, and served as marine hydrologist to Louis Claude de Saulces de Freycinet aboard the Uranie (1817–1820). He commanded La Coquille on its circumnavigation (1822–1825) with Jules Dumont d'Urville as second. René-Primevère Lesson also travelled on La Coquille as a naval doctor and naturalist. The voyage, led by Duperrey, concentrated on the exploration of the Pacific. La Coquille 'called at Brazil, the Falkland Islands, Concepcion, Callao, and Payta. The Pacific islands visited were the Tuamotu Archipelago, Tahiti and the Society Islands, Tonga, Rotuma, the Gilbert and Caroline Islands, and the Bismarck Archipelago. Australia was visited twice, and explorations made of New Zealand and of the Maoris were of particular significance.' (Hill pp.180-181). Before his return to Marseilles in 1825 (accomplished without the loss of a single man), Duperrey and his company discovered a number of unknown islands, prepared charts of previously little-known areas of the South Pacific (especially in the Caroline Archipelago), studied ocean currents, gathered new information on geomagnetic and meteorological phenomena, and collected an impressive array of geological, botanical, and zoological specimens for the Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle. After the return of the expedition Duperrey and his collaborators worked assiduously to prepare the results of the journey for publication. The expedition particularly distinguished itself in producing new knowledge of the behaviour of ocean currents in the Atlantic and Pacific oceans. Borba de Moraes p.275; Ferguson 1069; Hill 517.

        Die Physiologie als Erfahrungswissenschaft. 6 Bde. (all publ.)

      Leipzig, Leopold Voss, 1826-1840, 8, XXIV, 606 VIII, 557, (1), (2 Verlagsanzeigen) X, 817, (1) VIII, 495, (1) X, 730 X, 650 pp., mit 10 z.T. color. gefalt. Tafeln, 6 Falttabellen, 6 Pappbände der Zeit Rücken erneuert frisches Expl. Erste Ausgabe dieses großen Handbuchs der Physiologie aus dem Vorbesitzt von Richard Volkmann! Das Handbuch blieb unvollendet. Behandelt wird die Zeugung, das embryonale Leben, die Geburt, der Verlauf des Lebens bis zum Tode und die vegetativen Aspekte des Lebens. "Friedrich Burdach (1776-1847, Prof. in Königsberg)..., in dessen frühesten Arbeiten sich der spekulative Charakter (in dem Spiele mit den Begriffen von Rezeptivität und Spontaneität, von positivem und negativem Pol u.s.w.) ausspricht, während die spätere in großartigem Maßstabe angelegte, und mit Beiträgen von Karl Ernst von Baer, Heinrich Rathke, Johannes Müller, Siebold, Gustav Valentin, Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach, Rudolph Wagener u.a. versehene 'Physiologie als Erfahrungswissenschaft', der naturphilosophischen Phrasen entkleidet, eine durchaus geschmackvolle und in streng naturwissenschaftlichem Geiste bearbeitete Schrift darstellt. (...) In dem Eingange zum ersten Teile dieser Schrift erklärt Burdach, er wolle die Physiologie nicht analytisch, sondern synthetisch bearbeiten, d.h. die Erscheinungen des Lebens nicht aus den Begriffen entwickeln, sondern den Begriff durch sorgliche Prüfung der Erscheinungen feststellen". Hirsch, Gesch. Med.410f. "Burdach gilt als der erste, der die Gesamtheit der Einzelwissenschaften von den Lebenserscheinungen des Menschen (Morphologie, Physiologie, Psychologie) als "BIOLOGIE" bezeichnete. In seiner 'Propädeutik zum Studium der gesamten Heilkunst' - im 'Leitfaden akademischer Vorlesungen' heißt es: "Diese Kenntnisse können unter dem Namen der Biologie oder Lebenslehre des Menschen begriffen werden". Ilse Jahn, Geschichte der Biologie, p.320f. So wurde "das Wort 'Morphologie' zum ersten Mal im Jahre 1800 von Karl Friedrich Burdach (1776-1847) gebraucht.." (Günther Schmid, Goethe...). "First edition of the greatest text-book on physiology in the German language with contributions of the most famous physiologists of the period.""Volume I and II had indirectly a profound influence on the development of modern embryology. Karl Ernst von Baer, the chief founder of comparative embryology, here provides an entire treatise on the formation of the embryo." "The famous hand-coloured plates showing the development of the embryo accompanying Baer's classic 'Entwickelungsgeschichte' thus first appeared in Burdach's 'Physiologie'." Ove Hagelin, The Womans Booke (Cat. of rare books, Swed. Soc. Med.), pp.145 f. Karl Ernst v. Baer berichtete über seine Entdeckung: "Ich sprach im April oder in den ersten Tagen des Mai (1827) mit Burdach darüber, daß ich gar nicht mehr im Zweifel sein könne, die Eier des Säugetiers kämen fertigt gebildet aus dem Eierstock, und daß ich sehr wünschte, eine Hündin zu erhalten, die erst vor ein paar Tagen sich belaufen habe... Zufällig besaß Burdach im eigenen Hause eine solche Hündin. Sie wurde geopfert. Als ich sie öffnete, fand ich einige Graafsche Bläschen geborsten, keine dem Bersten sehr nahe. Indem ich niedergeschlagen, daß die Hoffnung wieder nicht erfüllt sei, den Eierstock betrachtete, bemerkte ich ein gelbes Bläschen und hob vorsichtig das Fleckchen mit dem Messer in ein mit Wasser gefülltes Uhrglas, das ich unter das Mikroskop brachte. Als ich in dieses einen Blick geworfen hatte, fuhr ich, wie vom Blitz getroffen zurück, denn ich sah deutlich eine sehr kleine , scharf ausgebildete Dotterkugel... Ich hatte nicht gedacht, daß der Inhalt des Eies der Säugetiere dem Dotter der Vögel so ähnlich sehen würde... Das ursprüngliche Ei des Hundes war also gefunden". (Rajkow, p.125). "Am intensivsten arbeitete Baer auf embryologischem Gebiet in den Jahren 1822 bis 1826. Im Verlaufe dieser fünf Jahre waren alle grundlegenden Erkenntnisse über die Entwicklung des Hühnchen im Ei gewonnen. Baer konnte dazu übergehen, der von Burdach übernommenen Verpflichtung Genüge zu tun. Im Winter 1826/27 begann er mit der Niederschrift. Das Manuskript übergab er Burdach in einzelnen Teilen. Im Herbst 1827 war die Beschreibung der Entwicklung des Hühnchens in den ersten 5 Bebrütungstagen abgeschlossen. Zu Ende des Jahres folgte der Rest des Manuskriptes." B.E.E. Raikov, Karl Ernst von Baer, pp.96 ff. "Das Wissen von der Beschaffenheit des Blutes datiert für die allgemeine wissenschaftliche Welt erst seit Johannes Müller. Sein Versuch, die Zusammensetzung des Blutes dadurch zu demonstrieren, daß er mit Zuckerlösungen verdünntes Froschblut filtrierte, wobei er ein Blutgerinnsel frei von roten Blutkörperchen erhielt, wird heute noch in den Vorlesungen wiederholt. Als dritte Körperflüssigkeit untersuchte er dann noch den Chylus, den Milchsaft und konnte hier die Kenntnis von der Zusammensetzung dieser Flüssigkeit, die völlig unbekannt war, begründen. Seine Untersuchungen veröffentlichte er in einem Werke, welches der damalige Königsberger Professor Karl Friedrich Burdach in Gemeinschaft mit verschiedenen Gelehrten herausgab.

        The Last of the Mohicans. A Narrative of 1757. By the author of the 'The Spy','The Pilot', 'The Pioneers', &c. &c.

      London John Miller New Bridge Street 1826 - First English edition, 3 volumes, 8vo., vi, 237; [4], 276; [4], 295pp., correct half-titles to vols. 2 & 3 (not issued with volume one), paper lightly age-toned, near-fine, near contemporary half-crushed morocco over marble boards, a little rubbed and chipped but otherwise an exceptionally good set. The U. S. first edition (Philadelphia) of the same year comprised two volumes with the U. K. edition following about two months later. The English edition consisted of 1250 copies, set from advance sheets forwarded to London as they came off the press in Philadelphia. James Fenimore Cooper is considered to be the first true American novelist. His most popular work, The Last of the Mohicans, has remained one of the most widely read novels throughout the world and it, along with the other four novels that make up The Leatherstocking Tales, has profoundly influenced the way many view both the American Indians and the frontier period of American history. Deep in the forests of upper New York State, the brave woodsman Hawkeye (Natty Bumppo) and his loyal Mohican friends Chingachgook and Uncas become embroiled in the bloody battles of the French and Indian War. The abduction of the beautiful Munro sisters by hostile savages, the treachery of the renegade brave Magua, the ambush of innocent settlers, and the thrilling events that lead to the final tragic confrontation between rival war parties create a vivd picture of life on the frontier. As the idyllic wilderness gives way to the forces of civilization, the novel presents a moving portrayal of a vanishing race and the end of its way of life in the great American forests.

Großzügig illustrierter Folio-Operationsatlas von Ludwig Joseph von Bierkowski aus seinen Berliner Jahren mit Darstellungen zur chirurgischen Anatomie und operativen Technik. Von Kopf bis Fuss werden alle blutigen Eingriffe, unter Einschluss von Otologie und Augenheilkunde dargestellt. Von besonderem Interesse sind die Abbildungen zur plastischen Chirurgie. Ein grossartiges, seltenes Bilddokument zum Entwicklungsstand der Chirurgie zu Beginn des neunzehnten Jahrhunderts. Für die Geschichte der Augenheilkunde ist die Wiedergabe der Grundsätze von F.A.Zeuschner von Bedeutung, der von Hirschberg "als erster Vorkämpfer für die offene Wundbehandlung" bezeichnet wird. Der beste Kenner der chirurgischen Literatur seiner Zeit Johann Nep. Rust schreibt im Vorwort "..als wir bis jetzt noch kein ähnliches Werk besitzen" und "Ohne den Werth früherer Leistungen auch nur im Geringsten verkennen zu wollen, kann ich doch dreist behaupten, dass das Werk des Herrn v. Bierkowski sich von all diesen durch Reichhaltigkeit und instruktive Darstellung auszeichnet."Bierkowski, 1801 geboren, studierte von 1821 auf deutschen Universitäten, besonders in Berlin und wurde 1828 zu Jena Dr.phil., 1829 zu Leipzig war seit 1831 Professor für Chirurgie an der medizinischen Fakultät in Krakau. Bierkowski starb Anfangs der Sechziger-Jahre. Schon vor seiner Promotion 1829 in Leipzig erschien das vorliegende Werk. "Die Abbildungen, größtenteils original, sind fast alle vom Verfasser gezeichnet, ja einige von ihm selbst lithographiert". Callisen. First edition, (rare). A magnificent handcoloured atlas illustrating a great variety of surgical procedures for the head, neck, eyes, throat, and limbs.

        Statements and Observations Concerning the Hulks

      C. and J. Rivington, London 1826 - Octavo, a fine copy in handsome aquamarine half-calf with gilt lettering. Scathing report on the hulks, revealing the same problems that beset the system at the time of the First Fleet continued well into the nineteenth-century.In the preface, the author clearly states his aim is reform in Parliament, not vilification of the warders: 'It is not my intention in the following pages to charge misconduct on any of those, who have the care and or custody of the convicts in the hulks. The evils which prevail there, appear to me to be the result of a defective system of management, and to require the interference of Parliament for the correction?'George Holford (1768?-1839) was a Cambridge educated lawyer who served as MP for various constituencies from 1803 to 1826. Although in his early life a playwright and author of works on politics and religion, once he became an MP he established himself as a persistent crusader for prison reform, author of works such as this one, and An account of the General Penitentiary at Millbank (1828).

        A Treatise on the Diseases of Females

Stewart, Jr. Contemporary sheep, red morocco lettering-piece. Provenance: contemporary signatures of Dr. Thomas Wies and Robert Wies on endleaves and title. A landmark in American medicine: the first textbook on gynecology in the country, illustrated with 12 plates, each facing detailed letterpress descriptions. Dewees was a "Philadelphian obstetrician... so famous that no parturient woman of the time considered herself safe in other hands" (American Medical Biographies). He was Professor of Obstetrics at the University of Pennsylvania, and Chair of the Department from 1834 to his death in 1841. The Advertisement leaf at front makes plain the purpose of the book: "The necessity of a work on the Diseases of Females, and especially the most common of them, seems to be pretty generally acknowledged." There are twenty-one chapters, including material on tumors of external parts, displacement of the uterus, prolapse of the uterus, milk abscess of the breast (including rudimentary surgical treatments). This and Dewees's two other works on midwifery and the diseases of children were enormously influential in the 19th century, and each went to at least ten editions.

Doch jetzt, nachdem ich mein Joch über 40 Jahre lang getragen habe, bin ich beruhigt, und will auch meinen Lebensgefährten die Tröstungen in ihre Hände geben, welche ich in dieser langen Zeit einsammelte.

"Mit dem vorliegenden Bande fängt die Fortsetzung des 'Deutschen Archivs für Physiologie', im Ganzen nach dem früheren Plane, zugleich als für sich bestehende Zeitschrift an." Vorrede"In 1815 Meckel became the editor of Reil's journal, then known as Deutsches Archiv für die Physiologie, which listed among its distinguished collaborators Johann Herrmann Ferdinand von Autenrieth (1772-1835), Blumenbach, Ignaz Döllinger (1770-1841), Karl Frederick Kielmeyer (1765-1844), Sprengel, Johannes Müller (1801-1858) and others. Meckel wrote a preface to the first volume stressing that only articles based on observations and experiments would be printed. He hoped that such an approach would gradually prevail in German science in order to obviate the ridicule incurred by speculation. But Meckel also decried mindless experimentation.An early article concerned the development of the central nervous system in mammals, a study followed by new observations related to the evolution of the gut, heart, and lungs. Intersperses with these careful monographs were numerous shorter articles. They covered subject matters as varied as the generation of earthworms, bleeding diatheses, development of human teeth, and the cerebral anatomy of birds.From 1826 until his death, Johann Friedrich Meckel (1781-1833) was the editor of the Archiv für Anatomie und Physiologie, a continuation of the previous publication. His last articles dealt to a considerable degree with malformations as well as with vascular and pulmonary development."

Or, Flower-Garden Displayed: in which the most ornamental foreign plants, cultivated in the open ground, the green-house, and the stove, are accurately represented in their natural colours ... Vol. LIII, being the eleventh of the new series. Octavo (229 x 144 mm). Recent green half morocco, gilt titles and decoration to spine in compartments, marbled paper sides, edges yellow. With 98 hand-coloured plates, 14 of which are folding. Boards slightly bowed, light offsetting from plates; an excellent copy. Volume 53 of Curtis's Botanical Magazine. William Curtis (1746–1799), the botanist and entomologist, published the first volume of The Botanical Magazine in 1787. The periodical intended to provide practical information on the ornamental and exotic plants rapidly becoming popular in Britain. It followed Curtis's well-received, yet financially unsuccessful, work on local plant life, the Flora Londinensis, first published in 1777. When Curtis died in 1799 his friend and fellow botanist John Sims, (1749–1831), took over editorship, changing its name to Curtis's Botanical Magazine. This is the final volume published by Sims; in 1827 editorship was taken over by William Hooker (1785–1865). Curtis's Botanical Magazine is still published today by the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew, making it the longest running botanical magazine of its kind in the world. "In the beauty of production and the high standard of its contributions it can claim a unique place" (P. M. Synge).

        Miscellaneous Poems.

      London: William Benbow,, 1826. Duodecimo (154 x 94 mm). Original boards, titles to front board in black, printed label to spine, untrimmed. Housed in a brown cloth slipcase and chemise. Boards slightly worn and soiled, front joint skilfully repaired, spine worn with minor loss to head, light browning and spotting to text block. A very good copy. First edition of this very scarce early collected edition of Shelley's poetry, in the rare original boards. This Benbow piracy selects Shelley's poetry from various previously published editions, collecting mainly from the Posthumous Poems edition of 1824, but with some notable examples drawn from earlier publications. Excepting perhaps the Posthumous Poems, this piracy constitutes the first selected edition of Shelley, and contains such poems as "Hymn to Intellectual Beauty", "Lines on the Death of Napoleon", "Love's Philosophy", "Mont Blanc", "Mutability", "Stanzas Written in Dejection, near Naples", "To the Moon", and "To a Skylark". This edition is fairly well represented institutionally but is rare in the trade - only one copy is recorded at auction in this millennium, and indeed the last copy in boards was in 1984.
