        Mémoires de Robert Guillemard, sergent en retraite ; suivis de documents historiques, la plupart inédits, de 1805 à 1823. Seconde édition, revue, corrigée et augmentée.

      Paris, Delaforest, 1827, - 2 vol. in-8, XVII-376 pp. et 365 pp., portr. et carte en front., demi-chagrin rouge, dos à nerfs, filets dorés (reliure de l'époque).Seconde édition. Exemplaire enrichi d'une notice historique manuscrite sur les mémoires de Guillemard et reliée en tête du tome 1 (9 pages) qui paraît être de la main de Charles Barbaroux. Il confesse être l'auteur de ces mémoires, avec "J. A. Lardier, mon ami d'enfance". Il s'agit bien d'une supercherie au sens où l'entend Quérard (2, 224) et c'est l'auteur lui-même, fait exceptionnel, qui nous en fait la confidence. Tulard, 671.

        Tulpen - Pierre-Joseph Redouté, 1827-1833.

      TULPEN UIT EEN VAN EEN DE FRAAISTE BOEKEN OVER BLOEMEN OOIT GEPUBLICEERD?Tulipe de Gesner / Tulipa Gesneriana?. Stippelgravure vervaardigd door Langlois 1827-1833 voor ?Choix des plus belles fleurs? naar het ontwerp van Pierre-Joseph Redout?, gedrukt in kleur en met de hand met waterverf bijgewerkt. Afm. (plaatrand): 26 x 21 cm.Deze tulp is vernoemd naar Conrad Gessner (1516-65), een natuurkundige die in 1561 de eerste wetenschappelijke beschrijving en afbeeldingen van een tulp publiceerde.Redout? (1759 - 1840) kwam uit een schildersfamilie uit de Ardennen. In 1782 gaat hij naar Parijs waar hij aanvankelijk decors ontwerpt voor het Th??tre Italien. In zijn vrije tijd tekent hij planten. Hij komt in contact met de Nederlandse professor Gerard van Spaendonck (1746 - 1822), verbonden aan de Jardin du Roi en wordt diens assistent en leerling.Redout?s talent breekt door en hij wordt hofschilder voor Marie Antoinette en later Jos?phine de Beauharnais (de eerste vrouw van Napoleon), die beroemd was om haar tuinen rondom kasteel Malmaison. Redout? werd artist-in-residence op Malmaison en produceert daar ?Les Liliac?es?. Met 486 kleurengravures in 8 delen z?n meest omvangrijke werk. Ook maakt hij ?Les Roses?, een eveneens indrukwekkend en belangrijk boek met daarin 170 platen en beschrijvingen van rozen.Na de dood van Jos?phine, ging het Redout? finaniceel minder voor de wind. Hij wordt tekenleraar bij het Mus?e d?Histoire Naturelle in 1822, maar wordt na de revolutie van 1830 vervolgens weer Peintre du Cabinet de la Reine Marie-Am?lie. Zijn laatste grote werken ?Choix des plus belles fleurs? en ?Choix de soixante roses d?di?es a la reine des Belges? completeren zijn imposante oeuvre.Redout? ondervond tijdens zijn leven weinig last de grote politieke onrust van de tijd. Revolutie en restauratie en de verschillende heersers die het voortbracht, stemden allen in met het werk van deze fenomenale botanische kunstenaar.In deze stippel gravure van tulpen toont Redout? zich op zijn best, waarbij hij zijn artistieke kunnen heeft gecombineerd met zijn vaardigheid als natuurwaarnemer.Prijs: ?1.350,-.

        Manual de malacologie et de conchiliologie. Paris.F.G. Levrault , Libraire1825-1827.

      1827. 2 voll. (testo + atlante), in 8°, bella leg. coeva in mz. perg. con angoli, titoli e fregi impressi in nero sui dorsi, pp.VIII-664, 2 tabelle più volte ripiegayt (testo), pp.(4) e 109 belle tavv. (atlante), inc. in rame, con sistema punteggiato (stipple engraving), eseguite dai migliori incisori del tempo, su dis. di J.B. Prêtre, sotto la direzione di P.J.F.Turpin, raffigurano centinaia di specie di animali con conchiglia. Fioriture dovute al tipo di carta, per il resto un bell' esemplare, non comune. Agassiz I, p.309. Caprotti II, p.9. Nissen ZBI, 391. Importante lavoro di malacologia, del quale esistono poche copie, assai rare colorate a mano. L'Autore (1777-1850) era un famoso zoologo francese, giunto a Parigi da giovane entrò ben presto sotto la protezione del grande Cuvier, dal quale venne aiutato nell'ottenere nel 1812 la cattedra di anatomia e zoologia. In seguito però tra i due sorsero inevitabili incomprensioni e inimicizie. Nel 1830 succedette alla cattedra di storia naturale del Museo parigino a Lamarck e alla morte di Cuvier (1832) a quella di anatomia comparata, che mantenne per ben 18 anni, fino alla morte. L'opera in questione è divisa in tre parti, di cui la prima è di grande importanza storica, in quanto tratta, con ampi riferimenti bibliografici, la nascita e lo sviluppo della malacologia. Come è noto, ai tempi di Blainville, all'interno del tipo Malacozoare (o Animali Molluschi) si includevano anche i Foraminiferi, i Brachiopodi e alcuni generi di Crostacei Cirripedi. Questi ultimi inseriti dall'Autore nel sottotipo dei Malentozoares..

        Travels of the Russian Mission through Mongolia to China, and Residence in Peking, in the Year 1820-1821.

      London: for Longman, Rees, Orme, Brown, and Green,, 1827. With Corrections and Notes by Julius von Klaproth. 2 volumes, octavo (224 x 139 mm). Mid-20th-century red half calf, raised bands between gilt rules to spines, compartments lettered in gilt, red cloth sides, edges untrimmed. Lithographic frontispiece to each volume (that in vol. 2 a folding chart of Peking), folding map. Recent bookplates of Robert and Eve Gregory, Walterston. Spotting to edges, prelims and occasionally to text block, mainly restricted to the margins only, a few other marks, map foxed, with a short split along central fold. A good copy. First edition in English of reputedly the first individually published Russian account of China, originally published in German as Reise nach Pekin (1825-6). Timkowski (1790-1875) was "royal overseer" on the tenth Russian mission to Peking, where the Russian government had maintained a school and church since 1728. His account is notable for its detailed description of his itinerary, in particular for the section of the journey made through the pass of Kalgan (Zhangjiakou) on the border between Mongolia and China. According to the translator's preface, the only earlier Russian travel-account of China to have been published was the journal of Lawrence Lange, who accompanied the mission in 1727, though that work was published as part of Pallas's Nordische Beiträge. The translator was Hannibal Evans Lloyd, who worked from the French edition published earlier the same year. Klaproth (1783-1835) was an accomplished German orientalist and a specialist in Caucasian languages.

        Der barycentrische Calcül ein neues Hülfsmittel zur analytischen Behandlung der Geometrie.

      Leipzig: Johann Ambrosius Barth, 1827. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. 8vo (213 x 125 mm). [2], xxiv, 454 [3] pp., including errata leaf and 4 folding engraved plates bound at end. Near contemporary moire cloth, spine with gilt-lettered label, red-sprinkled edges (slight rubbing to extremities, short split to cloth at head of upper hinge). Text little age-toned and with occasional brown spotting. Illegible faint circular ink stamp at foot of title-page. A fine and unmarked copy. ----DSB IX, p.430; Darmstaedter 372; NDB XVII, p.601; Poggendorff II, p.165. - FIRST EDITION of Möbius' "greatest work, which later became a mathematical classic... not only his most important mathematical publication, but also the source of much of his later work. He had come upon the fundamental ideas for his barycentric calculus in 1818 and by 1821 decided that they merited book-length treatment. In an appendix to his 1823 astronomical treatise, he had given a first discussion of his new method. As he stated in the foreword to his 1827 treatise, the concept of the centroid had been recognized by Archimedes as a useful tool for geometrical investigations." (DSB). Möbius is best remembered for his discovery of the Möbius strip in 1858, a non-orientable two-dimensional surface with only one side when embedded in three-dimensional Euclidean space. Erste Ausgabe von Möbius' Hauptwerk. "Der 'barycentrische Calcul' eröffnete den heute zum Allgemeingut gewordenen Umgang mit homogenen Koordinaten in der projektiven Geometrie. Felix Klein sah in Möbius einen Vorläufer seines 'Erlanger Programms'" (NDB). Der Name des Gauss-Schülers Möbius ist heute mit einer ganzen Reihe wichtiger mathematischer Begriffe und Entwicklungen verbundenen, darunter das von ihm 1858 entdeckte 'Möbiusband'. - Visit our website for additional images and information.

Umfangreiche eigenhändige Materialsammlung, bedeutend auch durch die Dokumentation mündlicher Überlieferungen. Der Lokalhistoriker Palme gab dann 1852 die weitaus weniger reich illustrierte Monographie "Warnsdorf mit seinen historischen Denkwurdigkeiten" heraus , von der 4 Druckbögen hier auch zwischengebunden sind. Im handschriftlichen Vorwort erklärt er: "Damit diejenigen Denkwürdigkeiten und so manches Wissenswerte aus alter und neuer Zeit, über Warnsdorf, und den umliegenden Distrikt; nicht verlohren gehen, sondern den Nachkommen aufzubewahren und aufzubehalten; so habe ich die, durch eine lange Reise von Jahren, mit so vieler Mühe gesammelte und zusammengebrachte Bruchstüke und einzelnen Urkunden, auch zusammgefasste mündliche Traditionen alter Leute, in gegenwärtiger Schrift gesammelt". Kopiert sind zahlreiche Archivalien, wichtige Ereignisse sind in eigenem Bericht zusammengefasst. Mehrere Kapitel betreffen Genealogisches und Heraldisches des in der Gegend ansässigen Adels. Die teils sehr dekorativen Tafeln zeigen Ansichten, Wappen, Grab- u. Denkmäler, Portraits und historische Szenen (davon 1 rückseitig mit Namenseintrag Johann Anton Pallm). - "Palme hat seine Erlebnisse von den Tagen seiner Jugend an bis zu seinen letzten Lebensjahren in chronologischer Folge mit besonderer Rücksichtnahme auf die geschichtlichen Begebenheiten seines Geburtsortes und dessen industrielle Entwickelung niedergeschrieben. Als Autodidakt übte er nicht ohne glücklichen Erfolg die Aquarellmalerei. Landschaftliche und historische Aquarelle waren das Ergebniss seines Fleisses" (Wurzbach). Beigebunden sind der von Palme erstellte und bei Wurzbach beschriebene "Situations-Plan von Warnsdorf in sechs Gemeinden" (1836). - Unbeschnitten, leicht gebräunt oder stockfleckig, wenige Blätter angestaubt, wenige lose, ein Aquarell mit Kirchenansicht geknittert und mit kleinen Einrissen. Einband beschabt. - Insgesamt gerade durch die hübschen Aquarelle sehr attraktive Handschrift einer in dieser Form nicht publizierten Quelle. " [Attributes: Hard Cover]

[Translation in English bellow] Véritable édition originale en langue anglaise, publiée à Paris le 27 novembre 1827, quelques jours avant l¿édition de Londres (30 novembre 1827) et surtout bien avant l¿édition de Philadelphie (9 janvier 1828). Cooper, qui était en Europe entre 1826 et 1833, y publia nombre de ses romans, et pour certains, la véritable édition originale est l¿édition publié en Europe. Comme les dates de publications sont parfois difficiles à connaître aujourd¿hui, l¿édition américaine est bien souvent considérée comme l¿originale mais pour deux romans, il est établi que l¿édition originale est bien l¿édition imprimée à Paris : The Red Rover & The Prairie. Ce roman a donc pour sujet la mer, sujet finalement peu utilisé par Cooper alors qu¿il y excellait, ayant été marin pendant plusieurs années. Cooper est d¿ailleurs considéré comme un des pionniers du genre littéraire américain Nautical fiction, genre qui prit vraiment forme dans la lignée de romantisme et de Byron. Son premier roman marin fut The Pilot. Ce roman est aussi l¿un des premiers à avoir un vrai personnage noir (Scipio Africanus) dans la littérature américaine. Reliure pleine basane racinée d¿époque, tranches marbrées. Petits défauts aux coins, coiffes supérieures arasées, une coiffe inférieure abîmée, petite fente en tête de 2 mors. Papier de l¿époque assez modeste, rousseurs, feuillets préliminaires du tome 1 dans le désordre, petite mouillure marginale claire au tome 2 sur quelques pages, mouillure très claire angulaire sur le tome 1. Provenances : Loppin de Montmont avec sa devise « Ny amy ny ennemy à demy » ; Maximilian Schoirfer (ex-libris avec un faucon). Ouvrage d¿une grande rareté, qui ne passe que très rarement aux enchères (depuis 20 ans, il ne semble y avoir eu qu¿un seul exemplaire, à Londres) et qui ne circule que peu sur le marché. [Spiller & Blackburn, 9]. Un bon exemplaire en reliure d¿époque. [This translation is made by google. If you have any question, I will be happy to answer it] A few days before the edition of London (November 30, 1827), and especially before the Philadelphia edition (January 9, 1828), was published in Paris on 27 November 1827. Cooper, who was in Europe between 1826 and 1833, published a number of his novels, and for some, the true original edition is the edition published in Europe. As the publication dates are sometimes difficult to know today, the American edition is often considered the original but for two novels, it is established that the original edition is indeed the printed edition in Paris: The Red Rover & The Prairie. This novel is about the sea, a subject that Cooper had little use for while he was an excellent seaman for several years. Cooper is considered one of the pioneers of the American literary genre Nautical fiction, a genre that really took shape in the line of romance and Byron. His first novel was The Pilot. This novel is also one of the first to have a real black character (Scipio Africanus) in American literature. Full-brimmed full rowan bindery, marbled slices. Small defects at the corners, upper heads flush, a lower cap damaged, small slit at the head of 2 jaws. The paper is fairly modest, the rednesses, the preliminary sheets of volume 1 in the disorder, small marginal wetting clear in volume 2 on a few pages, very clear angular wetting on volume 1. Provenances: Loppin de Montmont with its motto "Ny amy ny ennemy à demy"; Maximilian Schoirfer (ex libris with a falcon). A very rare work, very rarely auctioned (for 20 years, there seems to have been only one copy in London), and which circulates very little on the market. [Spiller & Blackburn, 9]. A good copy in vintage binding. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

St. verso tit., teilweise fleckiges Exemplar. Sehr selten, bereits Ernst Fischer zählt es in seiner "Geschichte und Behandlung der seitlichen Rückgratsverkrümmung (Skoliose) (1885(p.79)) unter den ihm nicht zugänglichen Werken auf.Guillaume Jalade-Lafond père (ca.1790- ), "zu Paris, wurde (am 29. November) 1805 (Dissertation sur la descente de matrice) daselbst Docotor, war Vorsteher einer orthopädischen Anstalt zu Chaillot bei Paris und hat, ausser der Orthopädie, sich besonders mit der Behandlung der Hernien beschäftig." Hirsch-H. IIII, p.412Jalade-Lafond beschreibt in seinem "Exposé succinct des moyens mécaniiques oscillatoires , imaginés et ewmploés pour remédier aux dévviations de la collone vertébrale et aux autres vices de sa formation" (Paris 1825, 35 pp.) "das die Korsetts und die Minerven (wie die Bandagisten den Levach'schen Apparat und seine Abkömmlinge nannten) meist ohne Erfolg getragen wurden, und blieb bei dem Heilverfahren mittels Streckbetten stehen. Die von ihm angewendete Distraktion war, wie die von Heine in Würzburg, Leithof u.a. geübte, eine elastische, durch Federplastik bewerkstelligte. Was jedoch als neu hinzukam, war die beständige Abwechslung in der Stärke des Zuges. Lafond hatte sein Bett so eingerichtet, dass dasselbe eine "Action croissante et décroissante" entfaltete, und schlisslich trat eine Ruhepause ein dann wurde der Zug wieder stärker und so fort. Lafond bezeichnete diese Art der Distraktion mit dem unpassenden Namen der oscillatorischen sie kam dadurch zu Stande, dass die Seile an denen die Extension ausgeführt wurde, über eine excentrisch rotirende oder eppiliptische Walze hinliefen und dadurch die Spannung und somit die Distraktion an dem Kranken eine stets wechselnde war. Die ursprüngliche Form des Lafond'schen Bettes von 1825 ... wurden jedoch sehr bald Abänderungen derselben vorgenommen, an deren , an deren Erfindung sich Duval beteiligte, ..." Fischer, pp.73-75 Jalader Lafond "hatte 1823 in Paris ein "Etablisment orthopédique" gegründet, welches er später zusammen mit seinem Schwiegersohn Vincent Duval (1796-1876) leitete und wewlches Duval dann allein weiterführte, während Jalade-Lafond nach London ging.""In dem Institut von Jalade-Lafond turnten die Mädchen in vernünftigen Anzügen, mit langen Turnhosen und eng anliegenden Oberkleidern im Garten an Barren, Leitern und Stricken." Valentin, gesch. Orth., p.55, 200"The early decades of the 19th century were marked by a rash of orthopaedic institutes in France. One such was founded in Paris in 1823 by Guillaume Jalade-Lafond, deviser of an "extension chair" (Streckstühle "Fauteuil oscillatoire") and "oscillatory bed" (Streckbett "Lit extenseur oscillatoire") with which he even attempted reduction of congenital hip dislocation. The gardens of his institute at Chaillot abounded with elegantly clad maidens engaged in varied gymnastic activities. Lafond took his son-in-law, Vincent Duval into partnership. Duval gained a reputation for his treatment of club-foot, on which he wrote a treatise, and it was this treatise that the novelist Gustave Flaubert consulted when he was planning for his character, Doctor Bovary, to perform an ill-fated section of the Achilles tendon. Towards of the end of the century, Duval's son Emile produced his own book on the subject." David LeVay, Hist. Orthop., pp.253-254 Very Rare!

        The florist's guide, and cultivator's directory; containing coloured figures of the choicest flowers, cultivated by florists.

      London James Ridgway -1832 1827 - First edition. 2 volumes, 8vo., 200 hand-coloured engraved plates by J. Watts after E.D. Smith plate 46 strengthened on verso of fore-margin, uncut, modern green half morocco gilt, red morocco labels, marbled sides, light offsetting from plates to text, a very attractive set. 'Born at Cockington near Torquay, Devonshire, England in 1783, Sweet worked as a gardener from the age of sixteen, and became foreman or partner in a series of nurseries. He was associated with nurseries at Stockwell, Fulham and Chelsea. In 1812 he joined Colvills, the famous Chelsea nursery, and was elected a fellow of the Linnean Society. By 1818 he was publishing horticultural and botanical works. He published a number of beautifully illustrated works on plants cultivatd in British gardens and hothouses. The fine plates were mainly drawn by Edwin Dalton Smith (1800–1883), a botanical artist, who was attached to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. His works include Hortus Suburbanus Londinensis (1818), Geraniaceae (five volumes) (1820–30), Cistineae, Sweet's Hortus Britannicus (1826–27), Flora Australasica (1827–28) and British Botany (with H. Weddell) (1831). He died at Chelsea, London in January 1835. He was charged with receiving a batch of plants allegedly stolen from the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. It was suggested that this was an attempt to frame him by an official at Kew whom Sweet had criticised. He was acquitted after a well-publicised trial. Robert Sweet received high praise from his contemporaries at his trial and was described as possibly the first practical botanist.' Nissen BBI 1925; Great Flower Books, p77; Pritzel 9080.

        Allgemeine und spezielle Pathologie und Therapie der Seelenstörungen. Frei bearbeitet von K.H.Hille. Nebst einem Anhang kritischer und erläuternder Zusätze von J.C.A. Heinroth.

      Leipzig, Hartmann, 1827, 8, XXII, 647 pp. mit 11 Steindrucktafeln, feiner Halbleder der Zeit sehr sauberes, sehr schönes Exemplar. Erste deutsche Ausgabe! Etienne Esquirol war der prominenteste Schüler von Phillippe Pinel (1745-1826), des berühmten Reformers der Irrenheilkunde. Mit Pinel war Etienne Esquirol (1722-1840) der Begründer der französischen Schule der Psychiatrie. Esquirol hat erstmalig statistische Methoden in die psychiatrische Forschung eingeführt und die humanistischen Ideen seines Lehrers zur Anwendung gebracht. Er gilt als Schöpfer und Begründer der modernen Irrenheilkunde. Sein Lehrbuch der Geisteskrankheiten war fast für ein halbes Jahrundert die Bibel der Psychiatrie. Der beigefügte Tafelteil bildet die erste wichtige Ikonographie der Irrenheilkunde. Von ganz besonderem Interesse sind die "..erläuternden Zusätze" von Heinroth (1773-1843), die Seiten 535 bis 647 umfassend. Neben seinem "Lehrbuch" einer der wichtigsten Beiträge des großen Psychiaters. "The subsequent terminology or separation of the specific types of epilepsy developed gradually in the Nineteenth Century. J.E. Esquirol, psychiatrist at the Salpétrière, wrote in 1815 that attacks alternate in intensity and that there are severe or slight attacks which he (1838) called "le grand mal" and "le petit mal". Although grand mal meant a generalized convulsion, the meaning of petit mal remained vague". McHenry, p.390 Waller 2816 cf.

      Paris:: Méquignon-Marvis & Gabon, [1827].. 8vp. xxxiv, 349 pp. Quarter modern dark calf over brown boards, marbled edges, gilt-stamped black leather spine label. Ink stamps of E. B. Krumbhaar and H. Russell Fisher on half-title. Fine. SCARCE. “Bichat conceived the idea of a science of anatomy and pathology based upon an accurate classification of the various tissues of the body, their distribution in the various organs and parts, and their particular susceptibilities to disease. He is regarded as the founder of modern histology and tissue pathology” (Garrison & Morton). “The foundation of histology and tissue pathology. Bichat generalized Pinel's theory, expressed in Nosographie Philosophique (1798) that pathology must be based upon the structure on the tissues of which bodily organs are composed, regardless of where in the body they occur. Bichat distinguished twenty-one different types of tissue, which he classified according to texture and to properties: extensibility, contractility, and the vital properties—organic contractility and sensibility (‘insensible' or ‘subliminal') on the one hand, and animal contractility and sensibility (‘sensible' or ‘conscious') on the other. Each tissue differed in its diseases, as diseases were nothing more than alterations in the tissue's vital properties. Claude Bernard said of Bichat that he ‘decentralized life and incarnated it in the tissues' (Norman in Hall II, 129). Provenance: Edward Bell Krumbhaar (1882-1966) was an American scientist. Krumbhaar “was a distinguished pathologist and cardiac physician, as well as one of Philadelphia's leading historians of medicine. A founder of both the Section on Medical History of the College of Physicians and the American Association of the History of Medicine (AAHM), Krumbhaar also served as president of the College and of the AAHM.” He was perhaps best known for his translation of Arturo Castiglioni's History of Medicine in 1941 (PASCL).

        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

[Time, devourer of all things]… These illustrations speak to two related themes: the misuse of the present, figured as concentrating on the illusory instead of the actual, and the inevitable declension of life from promise to impoverishment."
