        Map of the County of Essex

      New York, 1829. unbound. Rawdon Clark & Co.. Map. Copper plate engraving with original hand outline color. Image measures 12 1/2 x 15" This map depicts Essex County in the high peaks region of the Adirondacks, divided into 17 towns in full, vivid color. Lake Champlain forms the right border of the region, and Lake Placid, yet unnamed, appears in the upper left. The map denotes major routes, waterways, and topographical details, and icons label villages, flouring mills, factories, forges, saw mills, and churches. This first edition of Burr's county map appeared in his "Atlas of the State of New York" of the same year, which was the second atlas of an individual state ever published. The map is in good condition with light foxing throughout and some ink stains in the lower right margin, not affecting the image. Full original margins. David H. Burr (1803-1875) served as Topographer to the United States Post Office and Geographer to the House of Representatives and was widely known for his accuracy and attention to detail. His "Universal Atlas" was the first to map each of the United States individually. This map is a lovely rendering of a scenic area in New York State.

XXXVI, 128 pp., 6 gefalt. lith. Taf., Pappband der Zeit. Erste Deutsche Ausgabe! Claude Lachaise (1797-1881), Schüler von Esquirol, praktizierte als Arzt in Paris und war Militärchirurg unter Napoleon 1812-1815. "Lachaise meint in seinem ziemlich umfangreichen Werke, dass unter 20 Mädchen von 15 Jahren wohl kaum 2 ohne Rechtsskoliose im Rückenteil der Wirbelsäule zu finden wären. Ja auch bei Kyphose finde man den Buckel fast stet etwas zur rechten Seite hinübergeneigt." Firscher Er nennt neben den Ursachen der konstitutionsbedingt Entstehung von Deformationen der Wirbelsäule zwei weitere Haupt-Ursachen der Skoliose: mangelnde körperliche Betätigung und die damalige Kleidermode der Frauen. Er beschreibt nicht nur die verschiedenen Mißbildungen, sondern auch deren Ursachen und Behandlungsformen. Dabei warnt er vor den folgen der Streckbetten. In der umfangreichen Vorrede berichtet Siebenhaar über den jetzigen Standpunkt der Orthopädie in Deutschland.Hirsch/H.

        St. Petersburgh. A Journal of Travels to and from that Capital; Through Flanders, the Rhenish provinces, Prussia, Russia, Poland, Silesia, Saxony, the Federated States of Germany, and France.

      London, Henry Colburn, 1829. Two volumes, 8vo. Olive-green cloth of about 1900, spines lettered in gilt; pp. xxxvi, 560; xii, 708, [4, advertisements], 2 aquating frontispieces (one folding twice), 14 wood-engraved plates, 3 wood-engraved plans, 7 engraved plans, 2 folding engraved maps, numerous wodd-engraved vignettes in the text; binding minimally rubbed, folding map with repairs along folds, only minimal spotting in places; internally very good and clean. Second edition of this uncommon and highly illustrated travelogue, together with a thorough description of St. Petersburg society, court life, culinary habits, the ecnomy and and social order of Russia in the late 1820s. Augustus Bozzi was a rather interesting character of Italian extraction, who in his youth had been emprisoned for his Republican activism. A physician, first for the Navy (a friend of the Hamiltons) he settled in London as physician and campaigner for medical reform and education. In July 1827 he set out to travel with Count Vorontsov ('a distinguished nobleman') and his wife to Saint Petersburgh. A keen observer, Granville took notes along the routes of the social institutions, visited hospitals and medical luminaries, such as Samuel Hahnemann. In the preface to this edition the author states that he rendered this version 'less dry and more useful to travellers than mere livre des postes' (vol. I, p. xiv). Although the majoritiy of the text is on Russia, much space is given to the description of the journeus through Central Europe and a bit on Flanders and the Netherlands.

        Abbildungen aus dem Gesammtgebiete der theoretisch-praktischen Geburtshülfe nebst beschreibender Erklärung derselben.

      Nach dem Französischen des Maygrier bearbeitet und mit Anmerkungen versehen. - Berlin, Verlag von Friedrich August Herbig, 1829, Gr.8, 254, (2) pp., 68 lith. 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. Nachwort.Eduard Caspar Jacob von siebold (1801-1861) war Mitglied der bekannten Würzburger Ärztefamilie und berühmter Professor der Geburtshilfe in Marburg.

        Siamesische Zwillinge - Zwei 14 jährige zusammengewachsene Knaben sind vor kurzem durch einen Schiffskapitain aus Siam nach Bosten gebracht worden... (Sp.329).

      Notiz. Geb. Nat. Heilk., 25/ 21. - Weimar, Landes-Industrie-Comptoir, October 1829, 4, Sp.320-336, feine Broschur. 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 Académie 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... (Dec. 1829, 26/ 9, Sp.129-132). S.Mitchell & W.Anderson aus New York schreiben Fogendes an Captain Coffin (Dec. 1829, 26/ 9, Sp.132-133). Eine Abbildung der Siamesischen Zwillingen, (Jan. 1830, 26/13, Sp.202, 1 lith. Taf. mit einer Abbildung der Zwillinge nach einer Veröffentlichung der Revue médicale, November 1829). Die Siamesischen verwachsenen Zwillingsbrüder wurden in die dritte Conversazione in dem Royal College of physicians eingeführt... (März 1830, 27/ 4, Sp.54-55). Noch einige Nachrichten über die zusammengewachsenen Siamesen (Juli 1830, 27/22, Sp.345-346). Die Siamesischen Zwillinge (Jan. 1836, 47/ 4, Sp.49-55)."Die berühmtesten Doppelwesen waren Eng und Chang, deren Kennzeichung als 'Siamesische Zwillinge' einen Sprachbegriff schuf." "Eng und Chang wurden 1811 in Siam von einer Chinesin geboren, die außerdem zwölf gesunden Kindern das Leben schenkte. 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."

        History of the United States, or Republic of America: Exhibited in Connexion with its Chronology and Progressive Geography by Means of a Series of Maps. Designed for Schools and Private Libraries

      White, Gallaher, & White, New-York 1829 - Second edition, revised and corrected. Tall octavo. 424, xliv pp. Publisher's legal sheep with morocco spine label gilt. Wear at the crown and extremities, some modest foxing in the text, but a tight and sound, pleasing very good copy. Inscribed by Emma Willard: "To Mr. Alexander from his friend The Author," followed by a contemporary re-gifting inscription: "Asa G. Alexander from his affect'e Uncle, Fr. Alexander. Oct. 11th, 1831" (our research indicates Asa G. Alexander of Killingly, Connecticut was either attending or was soon to attend Yale at the time of the inscription from his uncle, i.e. he is listed in the 1832 catalog of students; further evidence indicates he later became a teacher). Also contains an attractive later bookplate and pencil ownership signature, all neat and not distracting from the author's inscription.Emma Willard was an educational reformer who opened the Troy Female Seminary in 1814 which was the first school in the United States to offer higher education to women, and which survives to this day as the Emma Willard School. The school has graduated a great number of distinguished women including Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Lily Spencer-Churchill (Duchess of Marlborough), Jane Fonda, and Senator Kirsten Gillibrand of New York. Willard also wrote several textbooks and books on history and geography, most notably this title, *History of the United States, or Republic of America*, (1828). She was a strong advocate of science education for women. An early work by a woman that helped pave the way for higher education for American women. According to Margaret Rossiter: "'Willard, her school, and others like it provided the essential starting point for women in science and the professions" (M.B. Ogilvie, *Women in Science* pp. 19-20). Reprinted over several decades, this early edition is particularly scarce, and the earliest Inscribed book by Willard we've seen. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        A BRIEF VIEW OF THE FORMATION, GOVERNMENT AND DISCIPLINE OF THE "CHURCH OF GOD"

      Montgomery and Dexter, Printers, Harrisburg, PA 1829 - Full pebbled leather, 3.5" x 5.5" redleather gilt lettered label on spine. 174 pp. Extremely scarce first printing of this treatise by Winebrenner, who was written about extensively in Richard Kern; John Winebrenner and the Church of God. Gossard writes (in his lengthy essay John Winebrenner: From German Reformed Roots to the Churches of God) ".John Winebrenner was a German Reformed minister who founded a religious movement known as the Church of God.(1) In the 1820s, as pastor of the Salem German Reformed Church in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, he came into conflict with the vestry over his use of New Measures revivalism and other issues. Eventually this dispute led to his dismissal by the vestry and his removal from the rolls of the Synod of the German Reformed Church. He developed new theological views about the Bible, the church, free will, baptism, the Lords Supper, and foot washing that were in opposition to the beliefs of the German Reformed Church. In 1830 his followers officially organized, forming a denomination known as the Churches of God, General Conference.In the 1840s he became an antagonist of John Williamson Nevin, a professor at the German Reformed seminary in Mercersburg, Pennsylvania. Winebrenner's activities, letters, and publications were among the precipitating factors that led Nevin to write The Anxious Bench and "The Sect System," two important early expressions of what became known as the Mercersburg Theology." VG, with significant foxing in areas. COvers are quite nice, a solid impression. Hard to imagine a finer copy being found. Extensive but very faint pencil writing on ffep.

        NOVELS and POETICAL WORKS

      Edinburgh Cadell and Co 1829-34 - 60 volumes. The first collected edition. With engraved frontispiece and vignette title page in each volume. 12mo (in sixes), contemporary half calf and marbled boards gilt lettered on spines, gilt decorated raised bands. A superb set in exquisite condition. UNHEARD OF IN THIS CONDITION. Sir Walter Scott remains one of Scotland's greatest men of letters. His influence was as far reaching as his works were commercially successful. His poetry earned him an offer of the laureateship, which he refused, and was considered quite original in style among the Romantics. Scott is best remembered however for his novels which were highly popular in his time and which were extremely influential to both his contemporaries and his literary posterity. He is generally accredited with establishing the form of the historical novel and, according to V.S. Pritchett, the modern short story. His works were as avidly imitated as they were read and his influence is especially recognizable in the works of Ainsworth and Bulwer-Lytton. This is a beautiful collection of all of Scott's great poems and novels. Including of course such classics as "The Lady of the Lake" and "Ivanhoe". The frontispieces and title pages in POETICAL WORKS are all after J. M. W. Turner. The simple and tasteful bindings are very handsome and in whole the set is highly unusual in this state of preservation and completeness. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      - London, Printed for Whittaker, Treacher, and Co., 1829. 8vo. Original publisher's drab boards, rebacked; pp. xxvi, 196, 12 (advertisements), facsimile of a Byron letter in white on black on pages 144 to 146, wood-engraved rebus on p. 152, pages 161 to 164 with facsimile of a Caroline Lamb letter in white on black; only lightly toned, uncut; a very good complete copy with advertisements at the end and half-title Hebrew Melodies. Very rare first 'critical' and much enlarged and annotated edition of Byron's and Isaac Nathan's 1815 collaboration, the famous Hebrew Melodies ('She Walks in Beauty'), with much additional material. 'Douglas Kinnaird introduced the composer of Jewish-Polish descent to Lord Byron in 1814, 'which led to a friendship that lasted until the poet's death. In response to Kinnaird's suggestion, Byron wrote the Hebrew Melodies for Nathan to set to music, and subsequently Nathan bought the copyright of the work. He intended to publish the Melodies by subscription, and John Braham, on putting his name down for two copies, suggested that he should aid in their arrangement, and sing them in public. Accordingly the title-page of the first edition, published in 1815, stated that the music was newly arranged, harmonized, and revised by I. Nathan and J. Braham. But Braham's engagements did not allow him to share actively in the undertaking, and in later editions his name was withdrawn. The melodies were adaptations of ancient Jewish chants, and the songs were indeed first sung in London by Braham. Their success meant that they remained in print until 1861 and became the foundation and highlight of Nathan's English career. Other associates included Lady Caroline Lamb, who wrote verses for him to set to music, his pupil Princess Charlotte, and the court circles of George IV, to whom he was music librarian and possibly secret agent (New Grove). To support himself he not only wrote and taught, but also ran a music warehouse and publishing business, and even made a not entirely successful stage appearance as Bertram in Henry Bishop's Guy Mannering (1816) at Covent Garden. In 1829 Nathan edited and published Fugitive pieces . This publication brought him a wide reputation, but its success was not sufficient to keep him out of financial difficulties' (ODNB). The edition history of this important piece of 'Christian proto-Zionism' (Malcolm Miller) is rather complex. Isaac Nathan published the Hebrew Melodies . The Poetry written expressly for the work by the Right Honorable Lord Byron., together with his musical score in April 1815. John Murray, Byron's publisher, who had recently moved to the up-market address in Albermarle Street then published it without mentioning Isaac Nathan with a printrun of 6000, a good part of which later being issued as parts of collected poems or with other works by Byron, frequantly omitting half- or sectional titles. (See Michael Rosen, Lord Byron and the Hebrew Melodies, BBC Radio 4 March 24, 2016). Isaac Nathan wrote a History and Theory of Music (1823) and, after his emigration to Australia, where he experimented with transcribing Aboriginal music he composed the first Australian operas in the 1840s. One of his descendandants, Harry Nathan' is a claimant to the music of Waltzing Matilda. Wyse II, p. 93. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
