        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).

        Archive of notes, letters and manuscripts relating to Governor Arthur's proclamation to the Aborigines of Tasmania and the publication of 'True Patriots All'

      Two hardcover notebooks with diverse typescript, manuscript and printed material tipped in; all well preserved; from Ingleton's Parramatta library with his bookplates to both volumes. True Patriots All. Archive of original signed letters, annotated manuscripts and notes preserved by Lieutenant-Commander Geoffrey Ingleton, many of which directly relate to the publication of True Patriots All. This book reproduced impossibly rare early Australian broadsides in facsimile and furthered public interest in early colonial society.The archive principally concerns the 1829 Van Diemen's Land broadside ordered by Governor Arthur depicting government policy to the Aborigines. One of the most haunting of Australian colonial images, the broadside pictographically represents settlers, soldiers and indigenous figures - with both native and European figures executed by hanging as punishment for homicide. The broadside was reproduced lithographically later in the nineteenth century with the misleading title "Governor Davey's proclamation to the Aborigines 1816".The first volume of the archive documents the process of printing the frontispiece for True Patriots All. The frontispiece is a colour reproduction of the abovementioned Van Diemen's Land broadside. This volume is primarily a correspondence of some twenty letters between Ingleton and the owner of an extant broadside, Mr Phillip Brown of Allanvale. Other correspondents include the Mitchell Librarian Phyllis Mander Jones and George Ferguson, the managing director of Angus and Robertson (and son of bibliographer John Alexander Ferguson). The letters are dated 1951-1952.The second volume of the archive was compiled considerably later and the material it contains is dated 1984-1986. It is principally a correspondence between Ingleton and Mr John Morris of Balmain who issued a limited edition facsimile of the broadside in 1984. Indeed, Morris writes that he inherited a copy of the broadside from his father who bought it long ago in Hobart. The second volume includes ten letters between the two scholars, four tipped plates of the broadside, four draft typescript copies of an essay composed by Morris (one of which is annotated and corrected by hand) along with newspaper cuttings and related snippets.

        Die Schmetterlinge in Abbildungen nach der Natur mit Beschreibungen von Eugenius Johann Christoph Esper. Herausgegeben mit Zusätzen von Toussaint von Charpentier. Europäische Gattungen.

      Leipzig, T.O. Weigel, (1829-1839). 7 volumes (5 volumes of text and 4 supplements bound in 5 & 2 volumes of plates in portfolio). 4to (270 x 215mm, text) & oblong-4to (235 x 300mm, atlas). pp. xxii, 388, (2), 190; 234; 396; 1-372; (4), 373-698, 85, (1); 276; (2), 120, 52, 104, 48, with 441 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Uniform 19th century half calf, gilt ornamented spines with blue gilt lettered label. A fine complete copy of the second and most complete edition of this beautiful lepidopterological classic complete with the supplements. 'With Esper a real scholar arrives on the scene, and while so far we have seen a constant rise in the artistic quality of illustration, we are now aware for the first time of the so-called scientific approach, which did so much damage to Europe's culture in the nineteenth century. Esper did not hesitate to show one wing of inherently beautiful butterflies as seen from above, and the other one as seen from below' (Pfeiffer). Still, even Pfeiffer admits that this method offered new possibilities of comparative evaluation to the scholar, and Esper cannot be denied a strong artistic gift, which was greatly helped by the Nuremberg engraver Johann Carl Bock (fl. 1757-1806). During a stay in the Low Countries Bock was encouraged even more by artists of the school of Maria Sibylla Merian, who had formely worked in Nuremberg" (Nissen, Bestiaries pp. 71-72)./Its fine plates are exceptionally delicately handcoloured and engraved by Bock, Sturm, Tyroff, Volkart, Walbert, a.o. after Esper's own drawings. Eugen Johann Christoph Esper (1742-1810) was a German entomologist and phycologist, professor at Erlangen and director of the Natural History Museum. His other major works are 'Icones Fucorum' published from 1797-1808 and 'Die Pflanzthiere' published from 1788-1830.//Horn & Schenkling 6085; Nissen ZBI, 1316.

        Iconographie et Histoire Naturelle des Coléoptères d'Europe.

      Paris, Méquignon-Marvis, 1829-1836 (-1838). 5 volumes. 8vo (222 x 140mm). pp. xiv, 400; 407; 326; 486; 415, (i), with 270 beautifully handcoloured engraved plates. Contemporary uniform half green morocco, richly gilt empire style spines. A fine uniformly bound set of this beautifully illustrated French classic on European beetles. The first two volumes in their original issue of 1829-1830. The stock of the first 2 volumes was destroyed by fire and both volumes were reprinted in 1837. The last volume 5, which is mostly lacking was written by Ch. Aubé and must have been issued in a small number. P.F. Dejean was called 'the first great coleopterist'. Together with Boisduval, who was his private curator, he published the above work on European coleoptera. "The great name in coleopterology during the early nineteenth century was P.F.M.A. Dejean (1780-1845), with a career quite exceptional among entomologists; a general who rose to the title "pair de France" and served as Napoleon's first aide-de-champ in the battle of Waterloo. Dejean was an ardent collector and eventually in part by purchase, brought together the largest private insect collection of his time. He lost no opportunity to fetch rare specimens, which is amply evident from what was told about his somewhat unmilitary behaviour during raging war" (R.F. Smith a.o. History of Entomology pp. 125-6). Dejean added insects to his collection from the fields of Waterloo. His collection numbered 22,399 species in 1837. W. Junk in his 'Bibliographia Coleopterologica' Berlin 1912 item 789 offers a copy of this rare work at Reichsmark 100, which makes it one of the most expensive works in the catalogue. Some occasional light foxing.//Provenance: Bookplate of J. Nègre.//Nissen ZBI, 1062; Horn-Schenkling 4602.

        NARRATIVE AND SUCCESSFUL RESULT OF A VOYAGE IN THE SOUTH SEAS, PERFORMED BY ORDER OF THE GOVERNMENT OF BRITISH INDIA, TO ASCERTAIN THE ACTUAL FATE OF LA PEROUSE'S EXPEDITION

      London. 1829.. Two volumes. lxxviii,302pp. plus errata; [2],436pp. plus three plates (two folding, one colored), and folding map of Mannicolo. Octavo. Modern three- quarter gilt morocco and cloth by Aquarius, spines gilt, t.e.g. A few minor fox marks, mostly on preliminary leaves of first volume. Lacks half title in first volume. Overall a very good copy. Forty years after the disappearance of La Perouse, Dillon, a sandalwood trader, was shown a sword hilt in the Solomon Islands which raised his suspicions about the fate of La Perouse. He organized an expedition in Bengal and sailed back via Tasmania, New Zealand, and Tonga. He was able to assemble enough evidence from natives, both in testimony and artifacts, to determine where La Perouse had grounded. One of the ship's relics, a glass piece from a thermometer, became a native's nose piece (depicted on a folding plate). Along the way Dillon was involved in a terrific legal row with the government of Tasmania, also reported in detail. He provides a scathing examination of the legal system of Tasmania and New South Wales, finally declaring Australia "a land of corruption and injustice." For his efforts, France made Dillon a chevalier of the Legion of Honor, his expenses were defrayed, and he was granted a decent pension. HILL, p.83-84. FERGUSON 1336. ABBEY 598. HOCKEN, p.44.

Beigelegt sind dieser, meiner Kenntnis nach ersten Mitteilung in einer wissenschaftlichen Zeitschrift im deutschen Sprachraum über die berühmten Siamensischen Zwillinge weitere 7 Hefte mit Artikeln über dieses Thema der "Notizen aus dem Gebiete der Natur- und Heilkunde". Eine dieser Arbeiten enthält wohl die erste in Deutschland veröffentlichte Abbildungen der Zwillinge. - Ueber die beiden mit dem Bauche zusammengewachsenen Brüder,... erstatte Geoffroy Saint-Hilaire am 19. Oct. 1829 der Academie des Science einen Bericht. (Nov. 1829, 26/ 3, Sp.33-36). - Die beiden zusammengewachsenen Siamesen sind in London eingetroffen (Dec. 1829, 26/ 7, Sp.106). - Ueber die beiden zusammengewachsenen Siamesischen Knaben, findet sich in den englischen Zeitschriften vom 24.Nov. 1829 eine ziemlich genaue Beschreibung...

Nur mit Mühe konnten die Zwillinge über die Kinderzeit gebracht werden, teils wegen ihrer Körperschwäche, teils weil sie verborgen gehalten werden mußten, da dem siamesischen König nach einer Weissagung Unheil bei der Geburt von Monstern drohte. 1824 entdeckte sie ein englischer Kaufmann und schwatze sie zwecks Nutzung als Ausstellungsobjekt den Eltern ab. Der Schaustellung in USA folgte eine Tour durch Europa. später ließen sich Eng und Chang in North Carolina nieder und heirateten 45jährig zwei fast zwanzig Jahre jüngere Schwestern. Wegen häuslicher Zwistigkeiten mußten die Frauen in getrennten Häusern untergebracht werden, in denen die Zwillinge umschichtig wohnten. Chang hatte 6 Kinder, Eng 5, sämtlich gesund und kräftig. Ein neuerlicher Besuch Europas, diente der Vorstellung bei berühmten Chirurgen zwecks operativer Trennung. Doch kamen die Chirurgen der alten und neuen Welt über Diskussionen nicht hinaus. Auch Rudolf Virchow hatt sie 1871 untersucht und darüber berichtet. Nach der Rückkehr wurde Chang halbseitig gelähmt. Beide starben 1874 dicht nacheinander. Auf die Nachricht ihres Todes eilte ein Ärztekonsortium von Philadelphia und North Carolina herbei. Aus dem Autopsiebericht geht hervor, dass die Verbindungsbrücke Lebergewebe, Zwerchfellfasern und Xyphoidknorpel enthielt; Pertionealhöhlen und die Brustorgane waren getrennt."

I intend to go to Transylvania and the Slav provinces, to pursue my studies and complete the work of which I send you the prospectus . The bearer of this letter is Mr James Emerson - He is working on a history of the Greek Revolution - which will certainly be worth more than any other that we have up till now. He knows the terrain and is already well knows to advantage by his writings. He will need to dip into the files of your Greek Committee where no doubt he will find much treasure .", 1 side 4to., London, 10th December 1829 and the final letter promises to sort out "some of the Pamphlets.

        Map Of The State Of Maine With The Province Of New Brunswick

      1829 - Steel engraving. Original wash color, refreshed; expertly conserved, re-mounted on new linen; a few cracks & marginal mends but fine for this kind. The very rare (three copies cited in OCLC), first edition of this excellent map of Maine by the state¿s first mapmaker. An exceptionally well-preserved example. Unlike many early American state maps that struggled to get completed, Greenleaf¿s received a warm commendation from the state legislature even before it was published, and the mapmaker was granted $1000 to aid him in finishing the map. Greenleaf later received $640 from the legislature for 40 copies of the map that were obtained for state use, a remarkable $16 per copy. Perhaps the large number of copies sold for official rather than private use helps account for the map¿s present rarity. The map was originally intended to accompany an atlas and survey of the state that Greenleaf published the same year, but very few complete sets of the three items are known to have survived. Greenleaf appears to have taken special care in the production of this map. Although published in Portland, Maine, Greenleaf employed as engravers for this work the estimable J. H. Young and F. Dankworth, both of whom produced major works for the firms of S. A. Mitchell and others. This precisely detailed map, which shows ten counties in different colors, provides state, county, town and township boundary lines. The state¿s many rivers, lakes, ponds, and even falls are shown as are roads and elevations. The map was re-published in 1844 by Greenleaf¿s son and namesake from the same plates but with emendations, and several times thereafter. Greenleaf published two earlier maps of the state in 1815 and 1820, but the present work was by far his finest. Ristow, W.
