        Forty Etchings, from Sketches made with the Camera Lucida, In North America, In 1827 and 1828.

      Edinburgh and London 1829 - First Edition, large 4to, folding hand-coloured engraved frontispiece map, 40 engraved plates on 20 sheets, minor water-staining on upper blank margins, later half calf over old marbled boards original burgundy morocco label to upper cover, spine gilt and slightly worn. Basil Hall, a captain in the Royal Navy, travelled extensively in the U.S. and Canada. Before leaving England he made the acquaintance of John James Audubon, who supplied him with letters of introduction in North America. Hall travelled down the St. Lawrence and in New England, down the Ohio and Mississippi to New Orleans, across to Savannah, and North along the Atlantic coast to Canada. Hall was hostile to slavery, and "his work contains many excellent descriptions of places and conditions that came under his observation" - Clark. Two camera Lucida drawings, printed on the recto of a leaf, face their accompanying descriptions on the verso of a preceding leaf. The folding map shows the U.S. West to Arkansas and Missouri, and North to Canada. After William Wollaston patented has camera lucida design in 1807, its potential was quickly exploited. Over time his design was refined and the camera lucida became easy to use. It had numerous applications. The camera lucida was employed by the sculptor Francis Chanytrey It had numerous applications. The camera lucida was employed by the sculptor Francis Chantrey, keen to obtain a quick and exact likeness of his subjects, by travellers such as William Bartlet who wanted to share with the public their accurate drawing of lands that were previously represented in a romantic idealised form, and by the medical profession who could obtain detailed scientific drawings of the body. Geologists used camera lucidas, which were easily transported, to produce accurate drawings as did archaeologists who could record their finds exactly as they had discovered them. It was particularly important in producing topographical drawings of America and employed by the controversial writer, Captain Basil Hall who published "Forty Etchings of America" which allowed the British and American public a view of a diverse range of subjects which included slavery. The American Exploring Expedition employed a team of artists equipped with camera lucida to produce images from around the Southern hemisphere. Their Anthropological drawings of Fijian chiefs and native American Indians have survived - along with snapshots of the ships' crews. Howes, H46; Clark III : 47.

Taf., Pappband der Zeit; vereinzelt fleckig.. Deutsche Erstausgabe des klassischen Werk der Geburtshilfe, nach dem Kupferstichwerk von Maygrier. - "Aber meinem in dem Vorworte ausgesprochenen Vorsatze, mich bei der Herausgabe dieses Werkes lediglich an das Orginal zu halten, bin ich nicht ganz nachgekommen; denn je mehr ich in der Bearbeitung weiter geschritten bin, um so innniger ward mir die Überzeugung, dass eine durchgehend statt findende Bearbeitung des Maygrier von wenig Nutzen sein könnte, da das Orginal, besonders vom praktischen Theile an, höchst flach und einseitig ist. Ich legte demnach schon vom fünften Abschnitte an das französische Werk gänzlich bei Seite, benutzte nur die Abbildungen, und schrieb einen ganzen neuen Text dazu, ohne indessen von der früheren Form abzuweichen. Um aber doch nicht ganz mein Versprechen ausser Augen zu setzen, eine Parallele zwischen der französischen und teutschen Geburtshülfe zu ziehen, so nahm ich Einzelnes, worin sich Maygrier von den teutschen Geburtshelfern unterscheidet, immer Rücksicht, und berührte dasselbe. (...) Auf diese Weise war es mir möglich, Kapitel mit aufzunehmen, die im französischen Originale gar nicht berührt sind, z.B. die künstliche Frühgeburt." Zit.a.

        Don Pápis de Bobadilla, ó sea, Defensa del Cristianismo y Crítica de la Seudo-Filosofía. Por Don Rafael José de Crespo, del Consejo de S. M. y Oidor de la Real Audiencia de Aragón.

      Zaragoza, por Polo y Monge, 1829. - Seis tomos en tres volúmenes en 8vo.; LXXII-216 pp. + 288 pp. + 305 pp. + XXXVI-292 pp. + 296 pp. + 324 pp. Ejemplar con ligerísimas trazas de polilla marginales en diversas partes que no afectan en absoluto la lectura. Encuadernación uniforme en pasta española, de la época, con dobles tejuelos, ligeramente fatigada. La rarísima novela aragonesa y quijotesca de intención política y moral, calificada de «vano esfuerzo», obra de un personaje apenas conocido hasta las últimas décadas, en las que han proliferado los estudios dedicados al mismo. Crespo, jurista notable, Catedrático de Legislación en la Universidad cesaraugustana, Oídor de la Real Audiencia y abogado en ejercicio permanente, amén de cultísimo lector, no es un escritor al uso, pero su interés radica precisamente en ello. Su honestidad pasa por el amor a su pueblo, Alfajarín «ese pueblo infernal», donde nació y murió, sujeto al poder feudal de la Baronía de Espés, uno de los últimos residuos de tal ejercicio dominical y señorial después de las Cortes de Cádiz, contra el que se rebelaron repetidamente sus connaturales en 1820 y 1830. La defensa de Alfajarín contra el poder de los Espés fue llevada en los Tribunales por Crespo en diversos pleitos con la Baronía por la posesión de las tierras, el pago injustificado de cargas y otras circunstancias

        Lafayette, an agitator for democracy and freedom long after the American and French Revolutions, uses his influence to obtain passports for exiled Spanish officers to enter France en route to Spain in order to fight against the absolutist monarch Ferdinand VII

      "Letter Signed, ""Lafayette,"" 1 page, 7.25"" x 8.5"", Paris, May 6, 1829, in French, concerning passports for exiled Spanish officers under the command of General José Maria de Torrijos y Uriarte who were opposed to the absolutist monarchy of Ferdinand VII. Expected folds, contemporary date-of-receipt stamp at upper right, else fine condition. A fascinating letter, underscoring his unwavering opposition to monarchial absolutism, Lafayette writes to the exiled Spanish General, then in exile in England, concerning the free passage of some of Torrijos' officers into France in order to renew their struggle in Spain. Lafayette writes in full (translated), ""I would not allow myself to add a new note to the one that the Minister of Foreign Affairs has been willing to receive, should not I have at this time the duty to comply as a simple messenger. General Corrijos [sic Torrijos], whom, after having lived for some time in Alençon [France] is now in England, has given me the responsibility to hand in to the Minister the report included herewith [not present]. He will find in it a very clear account of the facts and rights upon which about fifty Spanish officers founded their complaints. I do not doubt that justice will be dispenses to them by the Minister; and I would like very much that the answer from the French Minister of Justice, while in interim, will sort this affair out, that is valued as much, it seems to me, to our French honor, than the one of the claimants."" José Maria de Torrijos y Uriarte (1791-1831) was a Spanish military officer who first distinguished himself in the popular uprisings against Napoleon's invasion in 1808. Following the restoration of Ferdinand VII in 1814, Torrijos became military governor of Murcia, Cartagena and Alicante, but soon became involved with liberals bent on subsuming the monarchy under the 1812 Constitution of Cádiz. The authorities arrested Torrijos for his anti-monarchial activities in 1817, but was freed in 1820 when a military coup forced the king to recognize the constitution. However in 1822, France invaded at the behest of the Concert of Europe, which was uncomfortable with Spain's liberal government. In 1823 Torrijos surrendered his post at Cartagena to French forces and was exiled along with his loyal officers. He first travelled to France, where he first came into contact with Lafayette who did all in his power to assist him. However due to Louis XVIII's hostility to the Spanish liberals, Torrijos soon removed to London where he be began planning his return to Spain. The July Revolution (1830) and the installation of the ""Citizen-King"" Louis Phillippe (a move in part orchestrated by Lafayette) emboldened Torrijos and his followers to again attempt a move against Ferdinand VII. In the fall of 1831, with about sixty supporters funded in part by Lafayette, Torrijos travelled to Gibraltar via Paris and Marseilles from where he hoped to foment a rebellion. Unbeknownst to Torrijos, the Governor of Malaga, posing as a supporter, encouraged him to land along the Malaga coast where he assured the general that liberals would flock to his banner. Instead, the governor had Torrijos and his men arrested soon after their landing. He and his officers were summarily executed without trial on December 11 on the beach of San Andres in Malaga. "

Taf., Pappband der Zeit; vereinzelt fleckig. Deutsche Erstausgabe des klassischen Werk der Geburtshilfe, nach dem Kupferstichwerk von Maygrier. - "Aber meinem in dem Vorworte ausgesprochenen Vorsatze, mich bei der Herausgabe dieses Werkes lediglich an das Orginal zu halten, bin ich nicht ganz nachgekommen; denn je mehr ich in der Bearbeitung weiter geschritten bin, um so innniger ward mir die Überzeugung, dass eine durchgehend statt findende Bearbeitung des Maygrier von wenig Nutzen sein könnte, da das Orginal, besonders vom praktischen Theile an, höchst flach und einseitig ist. Ich legte demnach schon vom fünften Abschnitte an das französische Werk gänzlich bei Seite, benutzte nur die Abbildungen, und schrieb einen ganzen neuen Text dazu, ohne indessen von der früheren Form abzuweichen. Um aber doch nicht ganz mein Versprechen ausser Augen zu setzen, eine Parallele zwischen der französischen und teutschen Geburtshülfe zu ziehen, so nahm ich Einzelnes, worin sich Maygrier von den teutschen Geburtshelfern unterscheidet, immer Rücksicht, und berührte dasselbe. (.) Auf diese Weise war es mir möglich, Kapitel mit aufzunehmen, die im französischen Originale gar nicht berührt sind, z.B. die künstliche Frühgeburt." Zit.a.

        Brief mit eigenh. U.

      Berlin, 19. Mai 1829.. S. 4to. Doppelblatt.. An die Sopranistin Anna Pauline Milder-Hauptmann (1785-1838): "Ich finde auf Ihre Anzeige vom 14. d. M. nichts dagegen zu erinnern, daß die geistliche Musik, welche Sie zum Besten der durch Ueberschwemmung Verunglückten geben wollen, in der Marienkirche hieselbst aufgeführt werde". Anna Pauline Milder-Hauptmann wurde u. a. von Antonio Salieri im Gesang ausgebildet und von Emanuel Schikaneder gefördert, in dessen Theater an der Wien sie die Juno in Franz Xaver Süßmayrs "Spiegel von Arkadien" sang. 1807 wechselte sie an das Kärntnertortheater, wo sie bald eine der bewundertsten und erfolgreichsten Sängerinnen ihrer Zeit wurde. Neben Luigi Cherubini und Joseph Weigl komponierte auch Ludwig van Beethoven mit der Leonore eine Partie für sie; 1814 sang sie diese Partie in der Uraufführung des "Fidelio".

        Anatomie des formes extérieures du corps humain appliquée à la peinture, à la sculpture et à la chirurgie.

      Paris, Béchet, 1829. - In-8, (4), XXXIII, 363 pp., 3 planches h.t., veau blond aux armes de Pavé de Vandoeuvre, encadrement de filets à froid sur les plats, roulette dorée intérieure, plat inférieur partiellement insolé, rousseurs éparses, bel exemplaire. Edition originale d'un remarquable ouvrage d'anatomie artistique, novateur et ayant eu une profonde influence sur l'enseignement de cette discipline. Ce texte devait faire partie d'un vaste ouvrage, mais seule cette première partie (intitulée "Description des formes extérieures et de leur explication anatomique") a paru. Pierre Nicolas Gerdy (1797-1856), qui deviendra en 1833 professeur de pathologie externe à la Faculté de médecine de Paris, s'est servi des documents utilisés pour les cours particuliers qu'il donnait aux élèves de lEcole des Beaux-Arts. Son but était d'apprendre à voir à l'artiste, de lui faire comprendre les formes de la surface du corps "par le souvenir des parties cachées sous le voile qui les couvre". Gerdy compare l'anatomie à un verre grossissant, comparaison qui sera reprise par Richer en 1890. Il recense les différentes apparences corporelles et les analyse dans des oeuvres exposées au Louvre, à l'aide de notes critiques très importantes placées en bas de page. Gerdy précise ici certains détails anatomiques, auxquels son nom a été attaché : fossette sous-claviculaire, fer de lance, ligament, ligne, sillon latéral du ventre. Les planches représentent trois hommes dans la position du lanceur de disque. cf. Choulant, History and bibliography of anatomic illustration, p. 347 : "conscientious work, having particular reference to existing pictorial and sculptural representations"; Olry, Anatomical eponyms, p. 64 ; C. Barbillon, Les canons du corps humain au XIXe siècle, pp. 77-79 : "Le principal auteur qui chercha à définir en fonction des besoins des artistes un nouveau discours anatomique fut Pierre-Nicolas Gerdy qui, en 1829 publia une 'anatomie des formes' inachevée, mais déjà substantielle. L'originalité de l'ouvrage réside dans le fait que la connaissance anatomique n'est plus enseignée pour elle-même et en elle-même [.] . A partir de Gerdy, l'autonomie de l'anatomie artistique fait l'objet d'un consensus qui traverse le siècle." ; D. Rabreau & B. Tollon, Les progrès des arts réunis : 1763-1815, p. 350 : "La distinction décisive entre anatomie et morphologie ne fut pas fermement établie avant que P.-N. Gerdy ne publie son 'Anatomie des formes extérieures du corps humain appliquée à la peinture, à la sculpture et à la chirurgie', en 1829. » ; J.F.Debord, De l'anatomie artistique à la morphologie, In : L'âme au corps, Arts et Sciences, 1793-1993, pp. 106-107 ; M.

        Notes taken [by Alexander Monro] at anatomical Lectures at St. Bartholomews Hospital delivered by Mr. Stanley. The Spring Course of 1829 commenced on the above day [Jany. 22d 1829] ended on the 4th day of May.

      London: 1829 - manuscript in ink and pencil on paper, with a drawing of the bust of Mr. Abernethy at the Anatomical Theatre St. Barts on the opening page, 3 drawings on the verso of the last leaf, and a drawing of a skeleton inside the back cover, 240 leaves, oblong 12mo, original sheep with a brass clasp, rubbed, skin mostly absent from joints but covers held by (original) vellum strips, good Edward Stanley was ‘born on July 3rd, 1793, the son of Edward Stanley, who was in business in the City; his mother was sister to Thomas Blizard, the surgeon. In 1808 he was apprenticed to Thomas Ramsden, Surgeon to St. Bartholomew's Hospital, who died in February, 1813; Stanley was then turned over to John Abernethy for the rest of his term. He was awarded the Jacksonian Prize for his essay "On Diseases of Bone", and was elected Assistant Surgeon to St. Bartholomew's Hospital on Jan. 29th, 1816, at the early age of 24 . . He acted as Demonstrator of Anatomy until 1826, when he was appointed Lecturer on Anatomy and Physiology in place of Abernethy and held the post without distinction until 1848 . Stanley is described as being one of the most sagacious teachers and judicious practitioners of his day . Stanley's writings and the specimens he added to the Museum show how extensive was his knowledge of diseases of bone’ (Plarr's Lives of the Fellows).The Alexander Monro who took these notes was not a member of the dynasty that held sway in Edinburgh for almost a century. Alexander Monro tertius did study anatomy in London, but 30 years before the date of this MS: he was still active at this time however, and in fact a week into this course he carried out the public dissection of the West Port murderer William Burke. Our Alexander Monro gives his address as 13 Hadlow Street (later renamed Sandwich Street), a relatively new development in the north of Bloomsbury, which had already become notorious for its brothels.After a list of the books recommended by Mr. Stanley, the lectures begin, appropriately enough, with the Structure of the Bones, and bones are the subject of the first 13 lectures. The next 20 or so are concerned with the muscles, then follow the veins, fractures and dislocations, and finally various topics dealt with in one or two lectures, such as the tissues of the eye, the salivary glands, the anatomy of the brain, &c. The text begins on the rectos and returns on the versos. The lectures are numbered up to 64, after which there are about another 10, and these are - still - in pencil, for it was evidently Monro’s practice to take the notes in pencil and then write over this in ink (occasionally the pencil is visible under the ink).
