         Illustrations of British Entomology; or, a Synopsis of Indigenous Insects; containing their generic and specific distinctions; with an account of their metamorphoses, times of appearance, localities, food, and economy, as far as practicable

      London: Baldwin and Cradock, 1828 A very good copy of the full 11 volume set with supplement, bound in 9 volumes, with 94 (of 95) hand-coloured plates by Curtis and Westwood. The set has been bound in matching green morocco half leather bindings with marbled boards and endpapers. The spines have raised bands and gilt compartments and titles. All are sound and clean, with some degree of scuffing and wear, particularly Mandibulata VII which has a little staining to the front board. Mandibulata Vols I and II bound together. Vol I: tile page 1828 plus title page for Part 1 dated 1827; introduction; 186pp; plate list and errata; 9 plates. Vol II: 1829; 200 pp; plate list and errata; 6 plates. Mandibulata III: 1830; 374pp plate list and errata; 4 plates. Mandibulata IV: 1831; 413 pp; plate list and errata; 4 plates. Mandibulata V: 1832; 364 pp; Appendices and errata to Vols I-V - 365-440; index and plate list; 4 plates. Mandibulata VI: 1835; 240 pp; plate list and errata; 7 plates. Mandibulata VII and Supplement in one Vol. VII: 1835; 310 pp; plate list, advert for Manual of British Beetles, errata; 6 plates. Supplement: 1846; vi; 33 pp; 13 plates. Haustellata Vols I & II bound in one: Vol I: 1828; 151 pp; plate list; 12 plates. Vol II:1829; 202 pp; plate list and errata; 12 plates. Haustellata Vol III: 1829; 336 pp; plate list and errata; 8 plates. Haustellata Vol IV: 1834; 433 pp; postscript, plate list and errata; 9 plates. There is occasional spotting, particularly adjacent to the marbled endpapers, and usually in margins. There is a toned area to pp 266-7 of Mand. Vol III; and some ink marking on pp 276-7 of Mand. VII. The plates are clean with occasional light marking. The first part of Mandibulata was clearly bound later because the page edges are a little grubby. The plate numbers alternate to latin numerals. Vol VII of Mandibulata has an additional plate - plate XXXVII - which is missing from the Plate list and is instead listed in the Supplement. The Supplement lacks plate XLVII. This was Stephens' major work and despite occupying at least 20 years of his time, and considerable resources, was not completed. It is of interest that it contains the first printed reference to Charles Darwin, who sent Stephens some specimens, and was delighted to see his name in print. Please enquire if you would like to see additional images of this work.

         A System of Penal Law for the United States of America: Consisting..

      1828. "The Most Comprehensive and Enlightened System of Criminal Law that has Ever been Presented to the World" Livingston, Edward [1764-1836]. A System of Penal Law for the United States of America: Consisting of A Code of Crimes and Punishments; A Code of Procedure in Criminal Cases; A Code of Prison Discipline; and A Book of Definitions. Prepared and Presented to the House of Representatives of the United States. Printed by Order of the House of Representatives. Washington, D.C.: Printed by Gales & Seaton, 1828. x, [1], 142, 187, 45, 21 pp. [Bound with] Introductory Report to the Code of Reform and Prison Discipline [New Orleans: Printed by Benjamin Levy, c.1827]. 71 pp. Overall collation: x, 142, 187, 71, 45, 21 pp. Folio (12" x 7-3/4"). Recent period-style three-quarter calf over marbled boards, raised bands, lettering piece, and blind and gilt ornaments to spine, endpapers renewed, hinges reinforced. Moderate toning to text, light foxing to a few leaves, heavier foxing to endleaves. $3,750. * First edition. Livingston's criminal codes for Louisiana and the United States mark an epoch in the broad international movement for penal reform. Profoundly influenced by Bentham, they stressed prevention over vengeance. These codes were never adopted, but they were profoundly influential. "[I]t is probably safe now to say that these Codes embody the most comprehensive and enlightened system of criminal law that has ever been presented to the world. They constitute a thesaurus from which the world has ever since been drawing ideas and principles. The Code of Reform and Prison Discipline is especially striking from its breadth of its view, and in some particulars its wisdom is yet in advance of even the present age" (Hicks). Bound in the correct place, the Introductory Report in our copy is the version printed to accompany the Louisiana Code. The text is identical in both codes; the only difference is the pagination. (The text in the U.S. Code is 51 pp; that of the Louisiana Code is 71 pp.) Hicks, Men and Books Famous in the Law 180. Cohen, Bibliography of Early American Law 10311, 10344.

         Salix

      Vienna, Typis viduae Antonii Strauss, 1828 - Large folio (485 x 340 mm), pp. [x] 34, with 105 hand-coloured engraved plates; a large, uncut copy in contemporary marbled boards, binding worn. First edition of this magnificent monograph on willows. The plates are by Johann Ibmayer, who also did the illustrations for the author's work on grasses. It is one of the last great Austrian botanical books stemming from the Jacquin 'golden age' of Imperial patronage. The plates are very much in the 'Jacquin' style, elegantly engraved and highly coloured in watercolours and bodycolours.'It emerges from the foreword to Salix that Host had hiked through 'the provinces of Austria', had examined the willows in their natural surroundings, had cultivated them, and observed them at all seasons.' (H.W. Lack, Garden of Eden p 420). Host was imperial physician to Franz I and Jacquin's successor as director of the Schönbrunn Botanic Gardens, a position he held for over 40 years. A second volume of this work was planned (hence the 'Vol. I' on the title) but never published; the manuscript material for this volume is in the Porträtsammlung of the Nationalbibliothek, Vienna.This work is quite rare, and the only copy to appear at auction in recent years was the De Belder copy (Sotheby's April 27, 1987, n 165, £15,400, resold Christie's, March 17, 1999, n 44, ).Provenance: Title and dedication leaf with with oval stamp 'Siebenbürgischer Verein für Nat.

         Samueli Thomae Soemmerringio anatomico et physiologo celeberrimo die VII Aprilis, decem lustra post gradum doctoris medicinae et chirurgiae, rite captum felicissime et in summum scientiae emo-lumentum peracti celebranti pia mente gratulatur Ioannes Fridericus Meckelius ? Accedunt tabb. VI.

      Halle, prostat apud L. Voss ex officina Hirschfeldii, 1828 - Large folio (785 x 565 mm), pp [ii, 8] with 6 engraved plates (one with two illustrations printed from two separate plates on one sheet); a couple of small puncture holes in blank margins, a very fresh and clean copy in original publisher's cloth with printed title label.First edition, copy of Rudolf Ludwig Carl Virchow (see below) of this rare work commemorating the 50th anniversary of Soemmerring's doctoral thesis. This monumental anatomical study contains the first publication of a series of outstanding engravings of specimens from Meckel's grandfather's private anatomical museum. They depict finely detailed lympathic vessels in various organs, prepared by using mercury injection. The detail is exceptional and rivals the best of Sommering's own anatomical work. The plates were drawn by Johann Bernhard Gottfried (1716-1789) and engraved by Christian Benjamin Glassbach (1724-1779) of Berlin. The plates were drawn and engraved for the anatomist Johann Friedrich Meckel (1724-1774) (known as 'the Elder' to distinguish him from his more famous grandson, also Johann Friedrich), but never published in his lifetime. He earned his medical doctorate from the University of Göttingen in 1748 with his thesis, Tractatus anatomico physiologicus de quinto pare nervorum cerebri, in which he documented his discovery of the submandibular ganglion. Subsequently, he moved to Berlin, where he worked as a prosector, preparing anatomical specimens for study, and taught classes on midwifery. In 1751 he became a professor of anatomy, botany and obstetrics. During his career, Meckel began an anatomical collection that was continued by his son and grandson. The collection includes mummified parts of the body, organs, skeletons and skulls, zoological as well as human anatomy. The collection also contains teratological specimens, including a complete situs inversus from the eighteenth century.Soemmerring's doctoral jubilee on April 7, 1828 established the Soemmerring prize for the best achievements in physiology, to be granted every four years by the Senckenbergische Naturforschende Gesellschaft in Frankfurt. It was first granted in 1837. Samuel Thomas von Soemmerring was one of those rare geniuses who excel in several, quite different fields. He was the first to draw attention to the white matter of the brain - and in 1809 invented an electrochemical telegraph. He was the most famous German anatomist of the early nineteenth century. His works were characterized by accurate illustrations of considerable artistic merit.Provenance: Rudolf Virchow, 'father of modern pathology' and pioneering cellular biologist, with his memorial booklabel with motto: 'omnia cellula a cellua'OCLC records Chicago, College of Physicians Philadelphia, Wisconson, Yale, and Harvard in North America; one of these records erroneously states 8 plates, but 6 is the correct number

         RACHEL DYER: A North American Story

      Shirley and Hyde 1828 - 1st edition. A Good copy. 8vo., xx, 21-276 pp. Bound in brown cloth backed tan paper over boards, with title on a paper label on the spine. The spine is well rubbed, with a loss at the crown and foot; joints rubbed thru. Light scattered browning on some signatures. A Good copy of this scarce historical novel.*** John Neal (1793 -1876), born in Portland Maine (then part of Massachusetts) was an author and literary critic. He is credited as being the first American author to employ colloquialism in his writing, breaking with more formal traditions in literature. He was an early women's rights advocate, prohibitionist, temperance advocate, opponent of dueling, accomplished lawyer, boxer, and architect. In RACHEL DYER, Neal describes the Salem Witch trials of the 1690's; using the incidents that occur, the extraordinary phenomena, the 'unnatural' things, witchcraft, violence and death, to form the landscape. He emphasizes that Salem is inhabited by wise and learned people. But the wilderness now overtakes the civilized and pervades the small social microcosm that is Salem, affecting the minds of the learned as well as those of the ignorant. The contagion is apparent in the behavior of the city Fathers, the savages and the Quakers alike. *** [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Robert Hooper (1773-1835) "was born in Uxbridge, London and, after qualifying front St Andrews University in 1805, he held a post at St Marylebone Infirmary. He produced the first neuropathological atlas, which was based on more than 4,000 autopsies that he performed over thirty years, initially as a series of loose sheets in 1828, entitled The Morbid Anatomy of the Human Brain. Although the atlas contained 15 illustrations, these were unfortunately unaccompanied by any clinical account, but the pathological lesions of brain growths are described, c.g. tuberculomas (yellowish), melanomas (black) as well as aneurysms and abscesses. Hooper's work was particularly good on inflammatory lesions (Spillane, 1981). Hooper had also involved the vascular System in stroke. Plate IV illustrated atrophy of the left cerebral peduncle, left half of the pons and left pyramid front 'extensive destruction of the left corpus Striatum'.

         Tableaux historiques, chronologiques, geographiques et statistiques de l'Empire de Russie, avec une carte généalogique.

      Pluchart for Bellizard and others St. Petersbourg 1828 - Folio (50.5 x 37 cm). Title, [3] pp. incl. preface, bibliography and subscribers' list, 16 double page text tables, incl. a hand coloured geneological table and 3 hand coloured engraved maps. Contemporary half straight-grained green morocco over marbled boards, straight-grained green morocco label to upper cover lettered in gilt. Large format publication which intends, in a very didactic way, to familiarize European readers with the history, geography, population, structure and economy of a country that always seem to have been a mystery to foreigners. After a brief history of the Russian Empire covering the period from 862 until the beginning of the reign of Nicolas I (1796 - 1855), the work shows a genealogical table of the ruling dynasties. In the present example, the letterpressed Romanov's dynasty tree, ending with the name Alexander II, is expanded with manuscript notes of a 19th century reader, who updated it with the names of the spouse of Alexander II and their children. The large double-page tables and maps include a wealth of information on Russian geography, flora, fauna, trade, peoples etc. Of special note are the insets on the Don Cossacks, Georgia, Caucasus and the American colonies. A large map shows the "progressive conquest of Siberia", up to the Alaska. Unusually the work includes a bibliography, mentioning a majority of books in Russian. Rare: We could trace only 8 copies through WorldCat, only one of them in the USA. Brunet V, 1437. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

He produced the first neuropathological atlas, which was based on more than 4,000 autopsies that he performed over thirty years, initially as a series of loose sheets in 1828, entitled The Morbid Anatomy of the Human Brain. Although the atlas contained 15 illustrations, these were unfortunately unaccompanied by any clinical account, but the pathological lesions of brain growths are described, c.g. tuberculomas (yellowish), melanomas (black) as well as aneurysms and abscesses. Hooper's work was particularly good on inflammatory lesions (Spillane, 1981). Hooper had also involved the vascular System in stroke.

         New English Atlas.

      John Cary London 1828 - Folio. 46 double-page engraved maps (Yorkshire on 4 sheets, Wales on 2), with original full wash colour depicting parliamentary boundaries, manuscript pagination to verso of each map, 54pp. index and list of subscribers' names, lacking one leaf, tears to bottom of centrefold of a few maps, rebound to style in half brown calf, gilt. Rare. Apparently the most complete extant example, with fine original full wash colour, of this later edition of Smith's English Atlas with index and list of subscribers. Previously, it had been assumed that later editions of Smith's geological maps were issued only as Cary's English Atlas, however, the title to the index in the present example suggests that the original intention was to publish the work under Smith's name. This copy is also of considerable importance in the bibliographic history of Smith's work as it includes, in addition to 23 of Smith's maps, three further maps with geological data by Smith. Davis states that 'Copies of Cary's. Atlases in any edition are as rare as Smith's' and, of the 1828 edition, '[t]wo copies are known, one at the British Museum, and the other in the Cambridge University Library'. However, correspondence with Cambridge University Library (CUL) confirms that they do not have an example of the 1828 edition; as Davis did not give a shelfmark for the CUL copy (although he does for the BL copy) it is plausible that he had not seen it, while later cartobibliographies mention only the BL copy (Carroll Printed maps of Lincolnshire 1576-1900, p. 156, and Burden, Printed maps of Berkshire 1574-1900, entry 59, p. 84). The BL copy lacks the Wiltshire map and, according to Davis, 'contains 18 of the plates used by Smith'. The present example contains some 23 of the plates used by Smith, in addition to the unfinished geological map of Somersetshire and, of further interest, plates of Northamptonshire and Lincolnshire with legends and geological particulars engraved, according to Davis, 'in the true Smithian style'. It can, therefore, be said to be the most 'complete' version of Smith's county atlas extant, in that it contains all bar one of the engraved county maps he revised; however, the map of Durham is present in the earlier Cary version, prior to the addition of the geological information. William Smith (1769-1839) is known as the Father of English Geology, and is credited with creating the first geological map of the whole of England and Wales. This endeavour was to take 15 years and much financial heartache. It was not until 1812 that he got the break he needed when John Cary, a map publisher, together with some 400 subscribers, agreed to underwrite the cost of production, and in 1815 a geological map entitled 'A delineation of the Strata of England and Wales with part of Scotland' on the scale of 1 inch to 5 miles was produced. John Phillips called it 'Perhaps the most varied and beautiful sheets that have ever appeared in geological colours'. Some 400 were produced and only 100 are known to be extant today. Although his map was well received, Smith had little profit from it. This lack of financial success eventually brought him to debtor's prison. He was released through the generosity of his friends, and in 1817 he began work on individual geological maps of the English counties, inserting his findings on Cary's maps prepared for 'Cary's New English Atlas'. Twenty-three of these county maps (out of a projected 60) were completed before the venture petered out in 1824. As part of the additions, Smith inserted coloured tablets with identifying names of the strata in the blank space surrounding the county boundary. The recognition of his ground-breaking work came late in life, and it was not until 1831 that the Geological Society of London conferred on Smith, then 62, the first Wollaston medal, its highest honour. In 1835 he received an honorary Doctorate from Trinity College, Dublin, and 1838 (a year before his death) he was appointed as one of the commissioners to [Attributes: Soft Cover]

         A New Chart of the Coast of Guayana Comprehending the Colonies of Demerary, Surinam, Cayenne, and the Island of Trinidad, also the entrance to the River Orinoco.

      London Norie 1828 - Double-page engraved chart. Good condition, central fold, a small marginal tear. Dimensions: 670 × 840 mm. (26.25 × 33 inches). William Heather (1764-1812) started business as a publisher and dealer in charts and nautical instruments, on the same street as the East India Company, at 157 Leadenhall Street, under the sign of the 'Little Midshipman'. This address, which became known as the 'Naval Academy' and 'Navigation Warehouse', was later immortalized in Charles Dickens' work 'Dombey and Son'. In 1768 the firm became 'Heather and Williams' until Heather's death in 1812. At that point the celebrated mathematician and hydrographer, John William Norie (1772-1843), who had attached himself to Heather at an early age, assumed control of the business. He had begun making his own charts by the age of 25, and went on to be the leading chart maker and writer on navigation of his time. His accomplishments were considerable and lasting, including several atlases of sea charts as well as general works on navigation, most notably 'The Epitome of Practical Navigation' (1805), which was the standard work throughout the nineteenth century. Norie retired in 1839 but the firm continued under the direction of Charles Wilson (1807-1882). Charles had inherited his cousin George's place in the Norie firm in 1838, and after Norie's retirement, bought up Norie's share, until he was the sole proprietor in 1852. Prior to his cousin's death, Charles had no experience in chart publishing, but Norie had left the business in a good state, and the firm continued to run smoothly. The present maps dates from Norie's heyday, as it is A New Edition Revised and Corrected by him.

         Edward Bates Against Thomas H. Benton, St Louis, 1828

      1828. An Important Tract on Spanish Land Claims in Missouri and Arkansas Bates, Edward [1793-1869]. [Benton, Thomas Hart (1782-1858)]. Edward Bates Against Thomas H. Benton. St. Louis: Charless & Paschall, Printers, 1828. 12 pp. 12mo. (7-1/2" x 4-3/4"). Stab-stitched pamphlet in recent plain wrappers, untrimmed edges. Moderate toning, faint spotting and "201" in small early hand to title page. $1,250. * Only edition. Bates accuses Benton, the important Missouri politician and United States Senator, of political opportunism and corruption and refutes Benton's charge that he failed to protect his constituents against Spanish land claims in Missouri and Arkansas as a member of the U.S. Congress. Despite the topicality of this pamphlet and its political motivation, it makes a number of useful observations about the nature of land claims. Bates later served as the first attorney general of Missouri after it was admitted as a state and the U.S. attorney general under President Lincoln. This pamphlet is also notable as an early Missouri imprint by Missouri's first printer, Joseph Charless, who introduced printing there in 1808. He established his partnership with Paschall in 1828.

         The Continental Traveller's Oracle; or, Maxims for Foreign Locomotion. By Dr. Abraham Eldon. Edited by his Nephew.

      London, Henry Colburn, 1828. Two volumes, small 8vo. Original publisher's cloth-backed drab boards, spines with black paper labels, printed in gold; pp. viii, 277; [ii], 285, [2, advertisements]; extremities a little darkened and worn, apart from the occasional spotting a good, uncut copy in the rarely seen publisher's binding; housed in a purpose-made cloth drop-back box. Rare first edition of an idiosyncratic Grand Tour book, written by an Irish Catholic nobleman of Norman descent, who married a relative of Napoleon, whom he had met while on his Grand Tour in Italy (1815-1825). All their children used the name Bonaparte-Wyse.'Wyse wintered in 1815-16 at Rome, where he met Cardinal Consalvi, the reforming papal secretary of state, and Lucien Bonaparte, prince of Canino, a younger brother of the emperor Napoleon. Wyse and Lucien shared literary interests, and he was a frequent guest at the prince's country homes near Viterbo. He travelled through France, Switzerland, and Italy from 1816 to 1818, and ventured into the eastern Mediterranean in 1818 and 1819, touring Greece, Constantinople, Egypt, Palestine, Syria, Lebanon, and Sicily in the company of Charles Barry, the Gothic revival architect. On returning to Italy, Wyse visited Canino, where Lucien helped him convince himself that he was in love with Letitia Christine (1804-1871), Lucien's eldest daughter. Princess Letitia, accounted the most beautiful of her generation of Bonapartes, was young, unformed, and unacquainted with society; Wyse, urged on by Sheil, agreed to the enthusiastic Lucien's proposal and persuaded his reluctant parents' (Oxford DNB). Thomas Wyse opens the work with the old device of telling the story of having found a manuscript in Florence whilst sorting out the execution of the will and legal matters of his deceased uncle, Abraham Eldon, whose Grand Tour recollections fill the two volumes. Young Abe had been sent to the Continent for health reasons. The narrative of Italy is a persiflage of a Grand Tour memoir; Eldon, of course, is a Protestent Anglo-Saxon and rages against Popery: 'It is quite clear, agriculture can never flourish as long as they believe in transubstantiation [!], and that we never should have heard of the malaria under a Protestant church-by-law-established religion and priesthood' (I, p. 27), whilst Bologna is a town not altogether unworthy of its learning and sausages, though, after much inquiry, I could find neither of such quality as to satisfy me' (p. 25). Wyse ridicules the attitudes of English tourists in letting Eldon write 'I am a lover of the arts, by having had the advantage of hearing other people talk of them. I profited, therefore, as the reader may imagine, by my visit to such a place as Naples. I bought twelve distemper drawings, of Eruptions of Mount Vesuvius - nothing finer could be done in that way: they must have been excellent representations, for they resembled much some scenes of the same subject I saw the year before at Covent Garden pp. 33/4). Pine-Coffin R828/2, not in Ingamells; there is only one record of this title having appeared on the book auction market, as part of Grand Tour sale.

         Neue Beobachtungen über Versuche über die Knochen.

      Erlangen, bei J.J.Palm und Ernst Enke, 1828, 4, XXVIII, pp.29-198, ( 1 p. Druckfehler), (1 p. Verlagsanzeigen), 5 gefaltete Kupferstichtafeln, Halbledereinband der Zeit St.a.Tit., Rücken erneuert, feines Exemplar. Erste deutsche Ausgabe "Nach dem nie bekannt gemachten Originale aus dem Italiänischen ins Deutsche übertragen, umgearbeitet, mit Anmerkungen, Zusätzen und einer Biographe des Verfassers versehen von Dr. J.J. Albrecht Schönberg". Einen Höhepunkt und zugleich Abschluss der experimentellen Forschung zur Knochenregeneration im 18. Jh. stellen die bestechenden Versuche von Michele Troja (1747-1828) dar. Um den Einfluss des Marks bzw. der Markhaut und des Periosts auf die Knochenbildung zu studieren, zerstörte er diese getrennt bei Tauben. Nach Amputation des Fußes oberhalb des Gelenks und Zerstörung des Marks und der Markhaut (Endost) kam es zur Knochenneubildung um den knöchernen Amputationsstumpf herum nach der gleichen Amputation mit Entfernung des Periosts am knöchernen Amputationsstumpf trat die Knochenneubildung in der Markhöhle auf. Troja zog in seiner 1. Veröffentlichung "De novorum ossium regeneratione experimenta" (1775) - deren schlechtes Latein Haller beklagte - keine klaren Schlussfolgerungen aus seinen Experimenten. Trotz der Feststellung: "Nun behaupte ich, dass aus allem hier Gesagten klar hervorgeht: 1. Die Beinhaut sei das grosse Organ, das die Knochen selbst zur Bildung vorbereite, sowohl für das Wachstum, als für die Erzeugung der Knochen. Wo die Beinhaut fehlt, fand die Verknöcherung nicht statt", erkannte Troja auch in seinen späteren Mitteilungen das Periost nicht als Knochenbildner an und stellte sich damit, wie wir gesehen haben, gegen Duhamel du Monceau. Selbst Haller,der die brillianten Versuche Trojas bewunderte, wurde nicht klug aus seinen Vorstellungen über die Funktion der Knochenhaut: "Ist denn nun das Periost die Grundlage des neuen Knochens oder nur sein formgebendes Prinzip? (Num periosteum novi ossis aut materies sit aut modulus?)". So unterschiedlich und vielfältig die Vorstellungen über die Frakturheilung und Kallusbildung im 18. Jh. auch waren - nur eine Auswahl kontroverser Konzepte konnte skizziert werden - eines war doch deutlich geworden: dass der Knochen über ein natürliches Heilungs- und Regenerationsvermögen verfügt. Diese durch Experimente gefestigte Einsicht blieb nicht ohne Folgen für den chirurgischen Alltag. Mindestens teilweise wird das Eintreten für den Extremitätenerhalt bei komplexen Frakturen mit deren Heilungs- und Regenerationsfähigkeit begründet, so beispielsweise vom berühmten Oberwundarzt Friederich des Grossen, Johann Ulrich Bilguer (1720-1796), in seiner "Abhandlung über den seltenen Gebrauch... des Ablösens der menschlichen Glieder" (1761)." Vom Wandel unserer Vorstellungen über die Frakturheilung und Kallusbildung. Der Orthopäde 29 (2000), pp.1072-1081 Michele Troja, "zu Neapel, geb. 23. Juni 1747 zu Andria, studirte von 1765 an in Neapel, wurde durch Concurs Unter-Chirurg im Osp. S. Giacomo de' Spagnuoli, ging 1774, mit einem Stipendium versehen, nach Paris, wurde bald nach seiner Zurückkunft als Ober-Chirurg im Hosp. der Unheilbaren angestellt und bei demselben Lehrer der Augenheilkunde und der Krankhheiten der Harnorgane. Wegen glücklicher Behandlung des Kronprinzen wurde er 1781 zum Leibchirurgen der Königin Caroline und darauf auch des Königs ernannt und begleitete als solcher 1799 die königl. Familie nach Sicilien, kehrte aber 1812 nach Neapel zurück. Von seinen literar. Arbeiten sind anzuführen eine Uebersetzung von PORTAL'S während Troja's Aufenthalt in Paris erschienenem: "Rapport. . . sur les effets des vapeurs méphitiques . . . . avec , un précis des moyens. . . . . pour rappeler à la vie ceux qui ont été suffoques" (Neapel 1777) in's Italien. und als Frucht seiner früheren und in Paris fortgesetzten Versuche: "De novorum ossium in integris aut maxime ob morbos deperditionibus regeneratione experimenta" (Paris 1775 deutsch v. K. G. KUEHN, Leipz. 1780), eine sehr wichtige Arbeit über Knochenernährung und -Regeneration. Es folgten: "Lezioni intorno alle malattie degli occhi" (Neapel 1780) "Lezioni intorno ai mali della vescica orinaria e delle sue appartenenze. . . . . Golla giunta di una memoria sulla costruzione dei cateteri flessibili, etc." (2 voll., Ib. 1785, 88 deutsch von K. H. SPOHR, Leipz. 1788). Troja, der sich mit dem erst vor kurzer Zeit nach Europa gekommenen Gummi elasticum beschäftigt und darüber auch eine besondere Abhandlung geschrieben hatte, muss als Erfinder der elastischen Katheter bezeichnet werden. Später nahm er seine Untersuchungen über Knochenregeneration wieder auf und schrieb: "Osservazioni ed esperimenti sulle ossa in supplemento ad urf opera sulla rigenerazione delle ossa, impressa nel 1775, e nel 1779u (Neapel 1814, 4. deutsch von ALBR. V. SCHOENBERG unter dem Titel: "Neue Beobachtungen und Versuche .... umgearbeit und mit Anmerkungen, Zusätzen und einer Biographie des Verfassers (Erlangen 1828, 4., mit 5 Kpft.). Einen sehr bedeutenden Antheil hatte er auch an dem Werke von POLI: "Testacea utriusque Siciliae", indem die anatomischen Untersuchungen in demselben grösstenteils ihm zu danken sind. Ausserdem finden sich von ihm noch zahlreiche Abhandlungen auf verschiedenen Gebieten, da er ausserordentlich thätig war und selbst die Zeit der Reisen und der Jagdpartieen, auf welchen er den König begleiten musste, zu wissenschaftlichen Forschungen benutzte. Als der König Ferdinand 1815 nach Neapel zurückkehrte, wurde auch Troja in alle seine Aemter als 1. Chirurg des Hosp. S. Giacomo, 1. Chirurg des Hosp. der Pilger, Mitglied der Vaecinations-Commission u. s. w. wieder eingesetzt, 1821 aber plötzlich entlassen. Er starb 12. April 1827. --Troja war als med. und chir. Schriftsteller, als Arzt und Wundarzt gleich geschätzt, ein unermüdlicher Forscher, ein vortrefflicher Mensch." Gurlt, Hirsch VI, pp.13-14 siehe - Albr. von Schoenberg, Biogr. des Dr. u. Prof. M. Troja. Erlangen 1828, 4.Michele Troja (1747-1827) "studied medicine at Naples and then won a competition for the post of assistant surgeon at that city's Hospital of San Giacomo degli Spagnoli. In 1774 he obtained a scholarship for postgraduate study that enabled him to go to Paris, where he began the research on the formation of bone callus and bone regeneration that made him famous. For this work, which continued that of Henri-Louis Duhamel du Monceau, he was nominated corresponding member of the Paris Academy and was invited by Diderot to write a number of articles for the supplement of the Encyclopedic. When he returned home in 1779, Troja was given the chair of ophthalmology at the University of Naples, a post established especially for him, since the subject had not been taught there until then. In the following year he became surgeon of the king's chamber for having successfully cured the crown prince of a disease. In 1802 Troja campaigned successfully for the creation of a commission to spread the knowledge and use of Jenner's smallpox vaccination. Troja is known especially for his studies on the nutrition and regeneration of bones, a subject that was the focus of academic interest at that time. Even Spallanzani became interested in it and in his letters he referred to the work of Troja, although apparently without great enthusiasm. Such an unfavorable judgment does not appear justified today, for Troja considerably improved the techniques of study. For instance, he used immersion in nitric acid to bring out bone structure and applied zinc sulfate to obtain coloration of the cells and improve the visibility of microscopic structures. Troja's research on the eye is preserved in a volume of lectures on eye diseases. In urology he studied the diseases of the bladder and of the urinary system in general, and invented the flexible catheter. This invention derived from his active interest in and knowledge of India rubber, which had just been introduced into Europe. In addition to his own work in anatomy and microscopy, Troja collaborated with G. S. Poli for I many years in the latter's investigations on the anatomy of mollusks." Carlo Castelani, DSB XIII, pp.464-465 "Troja demonstrated that if a foreign body is introduced into the marrow cavity of a long bone, the bony cylinder dies and a new bone is formed all around the necrotic one, the latter being eventually eliminated. Accordingly, Troja suggested that in treating extensive caries of the bone, marrow should be destroyed, so that new bone formation would result."- Leonardo, Lives of Master Surgeons, p. 428. Troja later took up again his work on bone surgery and regeneration. In 1814 he first described the perforating connective-tissue fibers, usually known as "Sharpey's fibers."

      Charles Ewer & T. Harrington Carter, Boston 1828 - Boston Stereotype Edition, thick 8vo, portrait frontispiece, pp. xxxii, 1156, modern full calf, black morocco label lettered in gilt on spine; frontispiece a bit foxed, else generally fine. Edited by Joseph Worcester who published this version of Johnson originally in 1827, just a year before Webster published his quarto dictionary. Webster was enthralled enough with Worcester's job on Johnson that he engaged him to abridge the quarto, which Worcester did for Webster in 1829. A rift then developed between the two, Worcester compiled and published his own dictionary in 1830, and the so-called War of the Dictionaries was set in motion. Worcester's original 1827 "Editor's Preface" is reprinted here in full. Vancil, p. 128. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
