        Orthopaedie oder Werth der Mechanik zur Heilung der Verkrümmungen am menschlichen Leibe. + Orthopaedie oder die Verkrümmungen der Wirbelsäule und des Rumpfes und deren Heilung. 2 Bde.

      - Berlin, Georg Reimer, 1827/1831, 8°, 14, 292 pp.; 8, 332 pp., 9 gefalt. lith. Taf., 2 feine Pappbände; frisches Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe eines Grundlagenwerkes der deutschen Orthopädie und der Mechanik des Stehens und Gehens. Das Werk ist vor allem wichtig wegen des vom Verfassers propagierten Zusammenwirkens von Medizin, Physik und Mechanik in der orthopädischen Therapie. - Vor dem Hintergrund einer Darstellung der Anatomie und der Bewegung der menschlichen Körpers sowie der auf ihn wirkenden Kräfte (Druck, der Schwere, Zug der Muskeln) werden die Erscheinungsformen der Körperkrümmungen, wie z.B. Nacken-, Schlangen-, Winkel- sowie Beckenkrümmungen, Mißgestaltung der Rippen, des Brustbeins, Schlüsselbeine und Schultern u.a. und die Behandlungsmöglichkeiten durch orthopädische Geräte und Gymnastik dargestellt. Weiter werden Erkrankungen der Knochen, Muskel, Bänder sowie der Glieder, soweit sie orthopädische Krankheiten beeinflussen behandelt. - Die fein ausgeführten Tafeln zeigen angehörige verschiedener Berufsgruppen beim Tagen, wie z.B. eine Bäckerin mit Tablett, Wasserträger, Frau mit Krug etc. Sie verdeutlichen die Folgen falsche Tragens bzw. des Übergewichts für die Körperhaltung und illustrierten die im Text gemachten Ausführungen und Funktion und Anwendung der orthopädischen Geräte. - Friedrich Wilhelm Heidenreich (1798-1857), 1798 zu Rostall in Mittelfranken geboren, studierte in Würzburg, besuchte Berlin und ließ sich 1824 zu Ansbach nieder, wo er bis zu seinem 1857 erfolgten Tode äußerst segensreich wirkte. Daß er bei seiner umfangreichen Praxis und bei der unermüdeten Sorgfalt, die er jedem seiner Kranken zu Teil werden ließ, noch Muße zu ausgedehnten gründlichen wissenschaftlichen Studien fand, bekundet sein rastloses Streben und seinem nie ermüdenden Geist. Er beschränkte sich dabei nicht bloß auf seine Fachwissenschaft, sondern machte auch in verwandten Disziplinen umfassende Studien, in Geologie, Physik und Chemie. Seine Schriften und seine Leistungen in den von ihm besonders kultivierten Disziplinen sichern ihm in wissenschaftlichen Kreisen ein ehrendes Andenken. - Hirsch/H. III, p.124; Bayer. ärztliches Intelligenz-Blatt, 1885, Nr.5 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Rht. Honble. George Pitt Lord Rivers

      Published by M. Colnaghi, 23 Cockspur Street, London 1827 - Mezzotint. Printed on wove paper. In good condition with the exception of some surface soiling in the margins. Crease within center of image. Mended tear on top margin not extending into image. Mended tear on right margin. Fold along bottom margin. Image size: 15 7/8 x 13 inches. A remarkable portrait by James Agasse of his patron George Pitt, the second Baron Rivers, with his two prized greyhounds. James Laurent Agasse was a noted animal and landscape painter who worked in London at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Agasse was born in Geneva and received his first artistic training there. In 1800 he settled in London at the invitation of his patron the Hon. George Pitt, the second Baron Rivers. While in London he painted a number of fine equestrian and greyhound portraits for Pitt, including this portrait, which is noted as one of his most successful paintings. His devotion to the study of anatomy and his meticulous painting style made him a huge success in England, and he was widely recognized as one of the most adept animal painters of his day. He was a regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy between 1801 and 1845, and this distinguished portrait is a wonderful example of his skillful painting and meticulous anatomical observation. Quoted in the Dictionary of National Biography , the writer of the panegyric states, "that it was not for bread or for grain that he laboured, but that he was urged forward by the resistless force of natural genius." O'Donoghue, Catalogue of Engraved British Portraits.in the British Museum 1; Lane Sporting Aquatints and their engravers 72-73; Dictionary of National Biography.

      Stuttgart - Tübingen, Cotta, 1827 - 1830.. 60 Bde. 16°. Pag. Priv. Lwd. der Zeit.. EA. WG II 86. Mit acht Tafeln in Band I der Sammlung zu Philosophie und Geschichte. - Tlw. feuchtigkeitsfleckig bzw. -randig, tlw. etw. stockfleckig, Ebd. berieben, R. tlw. m. kl. Fehlstellen im Leinen, im Ganzen gute Exemplare, Bände uniform mit blauen Rückenschildchen gebunden. - "... Im 19.Jh. waren Herders Werke in der Gesamtausgabe (1805-20) weit verbreitet, und er galt als ein Wegbereiter des Historismus. Die Rezeption geriet jedoch zeitweilig in den Sog eines gegenaufklärerischen Nationalbewußtseins, das die intellektuelle Weite und die anthropologische Ausrichtung seines Denkens nicht mehr nachvollziehen konnte. Daneben wurde im Bild von Herder als einem Weimarer Klassiker, der die christliche Theologie in ein säkulares Humanitätschristentum aufgelöst habe, die theologische Fundierung seines Werkes übersehen. Die heutige Forschung legt neues Gewicht auf Herders frühe Schriften aus Riga und Bückeburg und rekonstruiert durch die Analyse seiner Auseinandersetzungen mit der philosophischen Tradition und seiner Aufnahme von Einflüssen der Zeitgenossen den zuweilen unter einem Predigergestus verborgenen Beitrag Herders zum Diskurs der europäischen Aufklärung über Sprachphilosophie und Ästhetik, Geschichtsphilosophie und Religionsphilosophie. Damit gewinnt sein Humanitätsbegriff ein Profil, das ihn im Spannungsfeld von Universalismus und Pluralität, von Säkularität und Fanatismus den Anspruch aufgeklärter Vernunft und die Kraft poetischer Empfindung zur Geltung bringen läßt..."

        On the treatment of anchylosis, by the formation of artificial joints

      1827. <p>First Successful Artificial Joint</p><p>Barton, John Rhea (1794-1871). On the treatment of anchylosis, by the formation of artificial joints. In North American Medical and Surgical Journal 3 (1827): 279-292; plate. Whole volume, 8vo. vii, [1], [v]-vi, 432pp. 2 plates. 210 x 133 mm. 19th century half calf, marbled boards, leather spine label. Fine apart from occasional light foxing. From the Svenska Läkaresällskapets Bibliotek, with the library&#39;s 19th century stamp on the title.</p><p>First Edition. Barton, a Philadelphia surgeon, was the first to create an artificial joint as a remedy for ankylosis (solid fusion of a joint). "His conception of an operation to restore motion to a fused hip joint was brilliant. His patient was a twenty-one-year-old sailor who had been injured in a fall on shipboard in which he sustained an injury to the right hip. The hip became stiff in a position of flexion and adduction. Barton reasoned that if he divided the bone and persisted in moving the osteotomy site during the convalescent period that a pseudoarthrosis [false joint] would develop, the ends of the bond becoming covered with fibrocartilage and held together by a fibrous capsule. This complication of diaphyseal fractures was well known to the surgeons of the day" (Peltier. p. 245). The success of Barton&#39;s operation paved the way for the use of osteotomy to correct joint deformities and preserve joint motion, eventually leading to modern artificial joint surgery. Peltier, Orthopedics, pp. 245-46. Garrison-Morton 4451.</p>

        Sir John Chiverton

      London - William H. Ainsworth 1827 - William Harrison Ainsworth's scarcefirst novel, which was a precursor to his well-known work Rookwood. Second edition, carrying Ainsworth's name as publisher instead of John Ebers who issued the book originally. Sir John Chiverton was written in collaboration with Ainsworth's school friend, John Partington Aston. Although the work was jointly written and sometimes claimed by Aston as solely his, many of the reviews described the novel as Ainsworth's alone. The novel also brought Ainsworth to the attention of historical novelist Walter Scott, who later wrote about the work in various articles; the two later met in 1828. Condition: In a decorative straight-grained morocco binding with gilt detailing. Externally, generally smart, though with some light rubbing and a few marks. Front hinge slightly strained. Internally, firmly bound. Ink inscription to verso of front free-endpaper, and ink signature to title page. Pages are bright, though with the occasional patch of foxing. Overall: VERY GOOD.

      Milan: L. Rados, 1827. <p>Volta, Alessandro (1745-1827). Engraved portrait by Luigi Rados (1773-1840) after Roberto Focosi. Milan: presso l&#39;Editore Proprietario Luigi Rados, 1828. 490 x 347 mm. Small repairs to margins, some faint stains, otherwise very good. <p><p>This fine portrait, engraved after Volta&#39;s death, shows him seated at a table, his left hand inside his coat and his right resting on the table, with an example of his "crown of cups" battery at his right and a Voltaic pile behind him. A 7-line caption in Italian gives a brief resume of Volta&#39;s achievements. Volta, the inventor of the first electric battery, published his first paper on it in the Phil. Trans. in 1800; his investigations proved the identity of Galvani&#39;s "animal" electricity with the electricity generated by his apparatus. The Voltaic pile made possible the experiments leading to the decomposition of water, electro-deposition of metal, and creation of the electro-magnet, initiating the electrical age. Benezit for the engraver. </p>

Nous avons consulté la première édition de Histoire plaisante et récréative de Napoléon dans l'autre monde imprimé par Périquet en 1835, exemplaire de la BNF, celui-ci ne fait que 51 pages et n'a aucun rapport avec le texte que nous possédons, c'est un conte fantastique, voir de science-fiction : Napoléon et son armée arrivent sur la lune et s'installe chez les habitants, y font la guerre et finissent par se marier avec les filles du roi. Absent de BNF et du CCFR mais présent à la British Library. Le bibliothécaire lui attribut même comme auteur (avec un point d'interrogation le Baron A. H. de Jomini). Cet ouvrage Swiftien (Politicopolis fait fortement penser à l'Ile volante de Lagado) où Napoléon arrivé dans l'autre monde visite une ville nommée Politicopolis accompagné par un pur esprit que seul lui peut voir et avec qui il peut échanger sans être entendu, est un supercherie littéraire qui à travers Napoléon s'attaque à tous les grands de ce monde. La cible principale n'en reste pas moins Napoléon. Il y rencontre de nombreux historiques avec lesquels il évoque l'histoire de ce monde. L'auteur est très cultivé et le montre.

        Luogo Destinato Al Sepolcri Dei Re Di Danimarca

      Milan - Aquatint engraving with original hand color. Ca. 1827. Sheet size: 15 x 18 1/4". Inventory#: p483pmat. "Questa Scena fur esequita pel Melodramma Tragico Amlete, del Sig. Felice Romani, e posto in Musica dal Sig. Saverio Mercadante, nell I. R. Teatro alla Scala. H. Carnevale dell'anno 1823." As opera reached a height of popularity and innovation in early 19th-century Italy, stage sets and scenery were increasingly viewed as art forms unto themselves. Enterprising artists and designers competed to create the most lavish, evocative, and visually engaging opera settings, and were so successful that their stage sets often competed with the performances themselves for an audience's attention and appreciation. Public criticism of various operas often revolved as much around the quality of the set designs as the beauty of the music, and audiences became increasingly discerning about the visual aspects of grand performances. Reflecting this tendency, Alessandro Sanquirico, a Milanese artist, was inspired to document the most striking sets at Italy's most celebrated opera house, La Scala in Milan. Sanquirico's vividly colored, masterfully drafted aquatint engravings capture the sumptuousness and sheer spectacle of these extravagant sets, often including costumed singers in the midst of a concert, and at the same time the artist brings the excitement of the performance to life in these remarkably vibrant illustrations. 0

        The Pine-bough

      Berlin 1827 - Bloch's landmark work is the most famous and most remarkable of all books on fish. It was published in twelve volumes, with 432 hand-colored plates. Each plate gives the name of the fish in several langauges, with Latin names included to settle any classification problems. Some of the plates are dedicated below the fish to different patrons, aristocrats, and learned societies. Each dedication is quite clear in giving credit to that person or group of people who paid to have that particular plate engraved and included in the collection. The public's interest in fish was heightened in the eighteenth century as fishing became a popular pastime for both men and women, particularly ladies of the court. Bloch equisitely captured the gleam of fish scales, which were the inspiration for sequins as used in the decoration of fine clothing. 10.5 x 17 inches (approximate page size)
