        SELECT VIEWS OF GLASGOW AND ITS ENVIRONS

      Published by Joseph Swan, Glasgow 1828 - 276 x 216 mm (10 7/8 x 8 1/2"). 4 p.l., xvi, [1] (fly title), 91, [1] pp. FIRST EDITION. Handsome 19th century polished calf, covers with elaborate ruled and floral roll frame in gilt and blind, raised bands decorated with four gilt rules terminating in an arabesque at either end, gilt compartments formed by thick, thin, and dotted rules, tan morocco title label, turn-ins tooled in blind, all edges gilt. WITH 33 ENGRAVED SCENIC PLATES PRINTED ON INDIA PAPER AND MOUNTED, the engravings done by Joseph Swan after drawings by J. Feming and J. Knox. Original tissue guards (one missing). Very thin crack along top three inches of front joint (the joints otherwise not seriously worn), one large and two small abrasions to lower cover, but the original decorative binding solid, especially lustrous, and altogether pleasing. A hint of foxing (only) to some plates (two plates a bit more foxed), endpapers and first few leaves at front and back with faint discoloration at corners (apparently from glue), otherwise A FINE COPY INTERNALLY--fresh, bright, and clean throughout, and with first-rate impressions of the engravings. This book differs from other travel books of the day in its exclusive focus on a city--and not an exotic foreign city, but one known more for its industry than its scenery. Indeed, it would be difficult to name another work in this genre with views featuring smokestacks as well as cathedrals. However, at the time the present book was printed, Glasgow was known as the "Second City of the British Empire" for its important contributions to the economy, and was proud to be a city of what was then understood to be progress. The scenes here, by the capable engraver Joseph Swan (1796-1872), do not depict depressing views of dark satanic mills, but reveal a bustling modern city, where goods are constantly being produced, bought, sold, and shipped. Many of the engravings show citizens hard at work in various capacities, while others show them enjoying the leisure their prosperity affords. The "environs" of the title take us to the surrounding countryside, where the roofs, steeples, and smokestacks of the city on the River Clyde can be admired from a hillside advantage. Swan and John Leighton (fl.1828-40) collaborated on several scenic books about Scotland, with the others concentrating on the natural beauties of lakes and rivers.

        Henry Clarke Taylor 1828 ALS

      - Extensive, very important missionary letter dates to that period of difficult. Froam April 28, 1828, he writes to Peter Jackson, a well-known illustrator for the Caxton Press, and a man of highly regarded piety. It seems the CMS had taken some steps against him and sent a loafer and idler to replace him. At this, the natives began to beg, and this is written in a lovely spelling to replicate the Jamaican accent, that he not leave them and even, though he notes it was not proper, begin to threaten the newcomer. He shares a list of grievances with the proceedings of the CMS, etc., and the whole is makred as extrememly confidential repeatedly. Four folio pages, from Salt Savanna, Jamaica. nearly 1000 words.

        Entretenimientos de un prisionero en las provincias del R?o de la Plata

      Barcelona: En la Imprenta de Jose Torner, 1828 Two volumes: [8]+viii+334 pages with engraved dedication in script, engraved supplemental pictorial title page and two plates; [6]+391+16 pages with engraved supplemental pictorial title page, appendix and one engraved plate. Octavo (8" x 6") bound in brown leather with gilt lettering to spine. Plates by J. Amillo. (Sabin 51215, Palau 183810) First edition.An important work on the Indians of Mexico, especially the Tarascans of Michoacan, written in Mexico by Benito Maria de Moxo and printed here by his nephew Juras Reales. "A valuable set of dissertations upon the natives and history of the New World, written by Don Benito Maria de Moxo, Archbishop of Charcas, whose papers fell into the hands of his nephew [Luis Maria de Moxo y de Lopez], and were printed by the latter under his own name without sufficient acknowledgement" - Sabin. The work contains fourteen essays by Benito Maria Moxo y Francoli written in 1805 in Michoacan where he served as auxiliary bishop from 1803 to 1805. The varied topics include Indian music; human sacrifice; Tarascan pre-Columbian painting; geometry; arithmetic and hieroglyphic writing; Black slavery in the Spanish colonies; and two essays on natural history. The appendix prints Moxo's 1807 speech in response to the British invasion of Buenos Aires. The fine engraved plates by J. Amillo include a scene of missionaries playing music for the Indians; a detailed representation of "Idolo Huitzilopochtli" (lively dancing Huitzilopochtli with mask, wearing feather headdress and holding a shield); and a stone idol on a broken base. A later edition appeared under the title Cartas Mejicanas in 1837Moxó y de Francoli (1763-1816), a controversial writer of the Spanish-American Enlightenment, was accused of collaborating with both monarchists and revolutionaries. His work is also marked by ambiguity, due to his loyalty to Spain and his sympathy for the original inhabitants of Mesoamerica, resulting in a complicated example of literary colonialism. This work explores Mesoamerican archaeology, astronomy, pictorial codices, human sacrifice, mathematics, comparative study of suicide among Native Americans and Europeans, pre-Columbian music, and other unusual anthropological subjects, such as the Tarascan painted manuscript discussed by Glass. Dismissed are the claims by Robertson and De Pauw that Amerindian culture is inferior, though the author rebukes Voltaire for minimizing the extent of human sacrifice and cannibalism among the Aztecs. He resolutely defends the Spanish conquest. Perhaps the most important result of the work was its contribution to an upsurge in interest in Mesoamerican archaeology and art. The copperplate engravings are handsome and well executed.Condition:Modern rebinding with new end papers. A very good set.

        Großes Gehöft am Wasser mit einem Reiter und Handpferd.

      . Feder in Schwarz, mit Federlinie umrandet, auf gelblichem Velin, verso mit brauner Feder signiert "F. Bamberger fec.". 10,9:17 cm. Bis auf einen Braunfleck im Himmel gut erhalten. Bildmäßig ausgeführte Zeichnung.. Seine künstlerische Ausbildung erhielt Bamberger um 1828 an der Berliner Akademie bei Johann Georg Schadow (1764-1850) und anschließend im Atelier des Marinemalers Wilhelm Krause (1804-1864). Nach dem Umzug der Eltern 1830 nach Kassel, wurde er dort Schüler des Hof- und Dekorationsmalers Georg Primavesi (1764-1855). Entscheidend für seine künstlerische Entwicklung war jedoch ein Aufenthalt 1832-1833 in München, wo er mit dem Werk Carl Rottmanns (1797-1850) bekannt wurde, der gerade im Auftrag König Ludwigs I. an dem italienischen Freskenzyklus für die westlichen Hofgartenarkaden arbeitete. Ab 1835 lebte Bamberger längere Zeit in Frankfurt am Main, immer wieder unterbrochen auch von längeren Aufenthalten in seiner Geburtsstadt Würzburg. im Hause der Familie des später geschätzten Landschaftsmalers Karl Peter Burnitz (1824-1886), der durch Bamberger wesentliche Anregungen für sein erst um 1849 begonnenes Zeichenstudium erhielt. Noch bevor sich Bamberger Anfang der 50er Jahre in München niederließ, unternahm er 1849-1850 seine erste Spanienfahrt, der noch mehrere folgen sollten. Vor allem die auf dieser Reise entstandenen Landschaftsbilder brachten ihm in München rasch großes Ansehen. 1844 unternahm er eine Studienreise nach Paris. Weitere Fahrten nach England und Südeuropa folgten, wo er wie in Spanien zahlreiche Werke schuf. 1871 ernannte ihn Ludwig II. zum Professor, 1872 zum Ehrenmitglied der Münchner Akademie.

      2 original drawings of Antilopes of the above work titled 'Antilope Dama' [by F. Bürde]. The first plate measures 310 x 450mm and is an ink wash drawing over pencil of a group of 4 Antilopes. Of the animal in the foreground the exact measures of length of legs, head etc are marked in pencil. The second plate measures 290 x 420mm and is a elaborate pencil drawing almost idential to the first drawing but adding one antilope to the group. This drawing is dated 18 February 1828 and also titled 'Antilope Dama'. The 2 plates are the orginal drawings for plate 6 of the mammalia section of Ehrenberg's work. This plate was drawn and lithographed by F. Bürde. The first orginal ink wash plate has an illegible signature. Added to the group of the 2 original drawings is a proof plate, a fine handcoloured lithograph, 'Antilope Addax femina. Dongala', which is plate IV of the mammalia section./"The journey led through the Libyan desert to Cyrenaica, to Fayum in 1821, toward the Nile to Dongola, and the shores of the Red Sea (in 1823) and yielded an unexpected large body of scientific result. Of the animal species alone, 3.987 (34.000 individual zoological objects) were sent to the collections of the Berlin Zoological Museum..." (DSB). Ehrenberg was the only survivor of the expedition. //B.M.(N.H.) II, 515; Junk Rara 138.

        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 Küupferstichtafeln, 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 mephitiques . . . . avec , un precis des moyens. . . . . pour rappeler a la vie ceux qui ont ete 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."

"Continuing the work of his friend and collaborator Christian Heinrich Pander (to whom the 'Über Entwicklungsgeschichte der Thiere' is dedicated), Baer observed the formation of the germ layers and established the germ layer theory. He described the way in which the layers formed various organs by tubulation, and he emphasized that the development of the embryo is from the apparently homogeneous to the obviously heterogeneous. In this he finally refuted the long held and much discussed theory that embryonic parts might be preformed in the egg. The publication of this book provided a solid basis for the further systematic study of the mammalian development" (Grolier 'Medicine' p. 215).
