Brief). - Christian von Bunsen gehörte zu den Mitbegründern des Deutschen Archäologischen Instituts in Rom; in der Auseinandersetzung um das Breve Pius? VIII. über die Mischehen (1830) und dem sich daraus entwickelnden Kölner Kirchenstreit wurde seine Stellung in Rom jedoch unhaltbar, so daß er demissionierte und Gesandter in Bern wurde. 1841 verhandelte er in England im Auftrag Friedrich Wilhelms IV. über die Gründung eines anglikanisch-preußischen Bistums in Jerusalem. Seit 1844 als preußischer Gesandter in London tätig, wurde er wegen seiner englisch orientierten Haltung während des Krimkriegs 1854 abberufen und zog sich als Privatier nach Heidelberg zurück. Seine Gattin Frances, die älteste Tochter von Benjamin Waddington of Llanover, Monmouthshire, veröffentlichte 1868 seine Erinnerungen ("A Memoir of Baron Bunsen"). - Das beiliegende Portrait stärker fleckig und angestaubt. - Aus der Autographensammlung des Heidelberger Chirurgen Benno Schmidt (1860-1935) mit dessen eh. beschr.

        Voyage autour du Monde, exécuté par ordre du Roi, sur la corvette de Sa Majesté, la Coquille, pendant les années 1822, 1823, 1824 et 1825

      Paris: Arthus Bertrand, 1830. 11 volumes in 8, quarto and folio. Detailed listing and collations below. Near uniform contemporary half green morocco and marbled paper covered boardsProvenance: J. Cauvin (signature and inked stamp)A very rare set of one of the rarest and most lavish of the French Grand Voyage accounts of exploration in the Pacific.The expedition, which left Toulon on Aug. 11, 1822, was sponsored by the French government and had as its chief objective the collection of scientific data, but was also instructed to report on the possibility of establishing a penal colony in western Australia. Duperrey, who was thirty-five at the start of the voyage, had been on the crew of the previous major French Pacific voyage, that of Freycinet. He had as his second in command Jules S. Dumont d'Urville, who was to become the most experienced French commander in the Pacific. While science led the expedition, there was also an unspoken goal of discovering where France might carve out an empire of her own in the South Pacific.Duperrey proceeded to the Pacific by way of Brazil and Cape Horn. Stops were made along the coasts of Chile and Peru, and in the Society, Gilbert, Marshall and Caroline islands. Other islands visited included the Tuamotu Archipelago, Tahiti, Tonga, and Rotuma. The expedition also made important exploratory visits to Australia, New Guinea, and New Zealand, where the Maoris were visited. The entire voyage took almost three years, arriving in Marseilles on March 24, 1825.By far the greatest contributions of the expedition were scientific, cartographic, and ethnographic. Some 264 birds and quadrupeds, 1200 insects, 288 fishes, sixty-three reptiles, and a mass of plants were collected and beautifully described and reproduced in the exquisitely colored plates of the several atlases. Reports were made on Polynesian languages, costumes, weapons, and religious artifacts, many of which are illustrated in the plates of the "atlas historique." Duperrey is given credit for discovering the Gilbert and Caroline island groups, and for correcting errors in earlier mappings of the Society Islands. Despite the unfinished nature of some of the text volumes, that which was published is marked with the detail and careful observations expected in the sumptuous format of French "Grand Voyages," and is one of the most extensive voyage accounts ever published.Duperrey's long visit to Tahiti and the Society Islands continued the French interest in this group, which culminated in their annexation by France by Du Petit-Thouars. His expedition also proved to be a catalyst for French missionary endeavors in the South Pacific to contest with Protestant Englishmen. His explorations of Australia and New Zealand, which Ferguson characterizes as of "great importance," were less significant politically, since the British vehemently opposed any French settlement there. Nonetheless, this largely scientific endeavor opened the door to a much more aggressive French policy in the South Pacific.This set is comprised as follows:[HISTOIRE]. L.-I. DUPERREY.

        Atlas zu den anatomischen-chirurgischen Bemerkungen über die Hauptdeformitäten beim Menschengeschlecht.

      Weimar, Landes-Industrie-Comptoir, 1830, 4, 43 schöne lith. Tafeln, Pappband d. Zeit. Erste und einzige deutsche Ausgabe des äußerst seltenene Tafelband zu Delpech's "Orthomorphie in Beziehung auf den menschlichen Körper, oder anatomisch-pathologische Betrachtungen über die Ursachen, Vorbauungs- und Heilungs-Mittel der Hauptdeformitäten und über die Grundsätze der orthopädischen Behandlung", hier mit den beiden Titelblättern zur ersten und zweiten Hälfte. Jacques Mathieu Delpech (1777-1832), geboren zu Toulouse 1777, erhielt seine erste Stellung an der Schule für Chirurgie und Pharmacie in seiner Vaterstadt. Seine Vorlesungen erregten solches Aufsehen, daß er bald darauf als Professor der Chirurgie nach Montpellier berufen wurde. Trotzdem Delpech neben seiner Professur noch ein großes Krankenhaus dirigierte und einem von ihm gegründeten orthopädischen Institut vorstand. Ihm verdankt die Orthopädie auch viele Zeichnungen von Gipsabdrücken Skoliotischer vor und nach der Behandlung, von Wirbelpräparaten und Skeletteilen. Gymnastische Übungen, die bei der Behebung der Skoliose angewendet werden sollen, hat er in 150 Figuren zeichnerisch festgehalten. Er gehört zu den Pionieren der Orthopädie. Er erkannte zuerst die tuberkulöse Natur der Pottschen Erkrankung, und durch die Einführung der Tenotomie gilt er als Wegbereiter einer operativen Therapie orthopädischer Leiden. Delpech nahm die von einzelnen Autoren schon früher wiederholt geübte offene Tenotomie wieder auf und versuchte 1828 den Klumpfuß durch die Durchschneidung der Achillessehne zu heilen. Sein Fall vereiterte und wahrscheinlich wäre die segensreiche Operation in Vergessenheit geraten, wenn nicht Strohmeyer den Gedanken Delpechs aufgegriffen hätte. (Fritz Lange) Der schön illustrierte Atlas ist eines der seltensten Dokumente zur Geschichte der modernen Orthopädie. Die Tafeln zeigen Skoliosen, Spondylosen etc., ferner Knaben und Mädchen in geeigneter Sportkleidung bei Übungen an Turngeräten (Kletterstangen und -seile, Strickleitern, Wippen, Rundlauf, Streckbetten, Schienen, orthopädischen Apparate etc. *A pioneer of orthopedic surgery in France. He had the misfortune to be shot and killed by a vindictive patient, who thought that an operation for variocele had rendered him unfit for marriage. - cf. Valentin, Gesch. d.

        [Scrapbook]: Early American Ephemera

      Philadelphia, 1830. Good. The art of scrapbooking in the late 18th and early 19th Century. A remarkable assemblage of almost 400 pieces of ephemera mounted onto the printed tables [51 leaves] of a first edition of James Boydell's The Merchant-Freighter's and Captains of Ships Assistant (London, 1764). Included are very rare woodcut and letterpress broadsheets, chap-book woodcuts, very early wood-engravings and copperplate engravings (several hand-colored), many original drawings, illustrated trade cards, and other ephemera, most five or more to a page, with one in each corner and a larger central piece. Folio bound in early marbled paper-covered boards (7.5" x 13"). The spine back is worn, most of the gatherings are loose, else overall very good. Housed in custom clamshell case.Included in the scrapbook is an elaborate hand-colored 1789 certificate for a New York fireman; three unrecorded late 18th Century sideshow broadsides: (a giant toddler, an elephant, and a lion); trade cards (for a chair maker, merchant, and a "fancy painter"); and several cloth silhouettes portraits from Philadelphia's Peale Museum. Among the other period pieces are several original drawings; satirical prints and portraits; and of both printed and hand-colored ephemera: city views (mostly of Philadelphia, Boston, and New York), animals, birds, calling cards, trade advertisements, playing cards, lottery tickets, historic and allegorical scenes, and handbills.The scrapbook was apparently assembled by a Mary Brown of Philadelphia: as indicated by her surname on a small paper label on the front cover, her first name composed of wood-engraved initials on a leaf at the back of the book, and by her full name written on a laid-in manuscript receipt (dated 1823). Largely compiled in the first decade of the 19th Century, there are also two later elements laid in: a hand-colored bookplate or calling card for one Samuel Weaver, along with a manuscript receipt made out to him from 1856. All 400 pieces have been artistically arranged around successive themes and visually striking patterns. The overall effect is that of a procession of images placed under the gaze of English schoolmaster Thomas Dilworth, whose engraved portrait, known to generations of school children learning to spell using pictures according to his method, is on the front pastedown.Highlights include:1. [Hand-colored engraved certificate, 1789]: Voluntary Aid in letterpress, within an engraved cartouche extending from the center of the top edge, folded (about 7.25" x 9.25"). The main text below the cartouche reads: "These are to Certify that 'John Brown' [in manuscript] is pursuant to Law nominated and appointed 'one' of the Firemen of the City of New York." [Signed]: "Rob: Benson Clk, November 13th 1789." Elaborate wood-engraved ornamental border with vignette of a fire truck (bottom center), and large cartouche at the top depicting fire fighters battling a blaze on a city street. Trimmed along the outer edge of the printed borders, with the top portion of the cartouche folded to fit inside the album. The upper decorative border of the cartouche is trimmed away, with a few short tears, else very good.2. [Broadsheet advertisement]: The King of Beasts. Beautiful African Lion. [Circa 1795]. (7.25" x 10"). Woodcut illustration of a lion: "The Gentlemen and Ladies of the City of New-York are respectfully informed of the arrival of a most Beautiful African Lion. This noble animal is between three and four feet high, measures nine feet from the nostrils to the tail, and is of beautiful dun color ... He was caught in the woods of Goree, in Africa, when a whelp, and brought thence to New-York ... Price of Admittance, two shillings, Children half price. This noble animal may be seen at the store No. 23, next door to the corner of Front-street, at Beekman-slip." Trimmed along the outer edge of the printed border to fit the page, very good. Unrecorded.3. [Broadsheet advertisement]. Singular Child, To be seen at the Red Lion Hotel. [Circa 1795]. (9.25" x 12.5"). Engraved by Abel Bowen (signed: ABowen Sc.). A large woodcut illustration of a giant toddler standing next to a chair, holding a rattle, with ornamental border. [Display and letterpress type]: "Singular Child. To be seen at the Red Lion Hotel, No. 200, Market Street, [with: "till the 1 day of March" added in manuscript] Entrance at the front door, and also from Sixth street, A Male Child, Who is pronounced by many physicians and others who have visited him, in Boston, New York, and other places, to be one of the greatest natural curiosities ever seen in this, or perhaps any other country. This extraordinary American Infant, born in Prospect, Maine, is, perhaps, the largest of the human family, of his age; not more than thirty months old, he has arrived to the weight and proportion in symmetry and form equal to the size and exactness of an ordinary man ... He is larger than either of his parents, who are 22 years of age. Admittance 25 cents -- Children half price." Trimmed along the outer edge of the printed border, horizontal fold, very good. Unrecorded.4. [Broadsheet advertisement]: [Elephant]. [Circa 1798]. (8.5" x 7.5"). Woodcut illustration of an elephant at the top of the sheet: "Is removed to her old stand at the George tavern, corner of Arch and [s]econd street where she will be seen from Monday the 28th inst. till Wednesday the 30th. Those who wish to gratify their curiosity by seeing this astonishing wonder, will do well by calling previous to that, as she will positively leave the city that night. Doors will be opened from 6 o'clock in the morning, until 7 at night. Admittance, 25 Cents - - Children half-price." The top margin is trimmed along the top edge of the woodcut, the left margin is trimmed along the left vertical edge of the letterpress text, taking out a letter or part thereof from each line, else good. Most likely an advertisement for the "Crowninshield Elephant," also known as "Old Bet," a female elephant brought to New York from Bengal by Jacob Crowninshield in April 1796, then sold to showmen who exhibited her along the east coast. According to a contemporary harbor report, she was exhibited in Philadelphia in April, 1798. Unrecorded.5. [Engraved trade cards]: Illustrated trade cards: Issac Pippitt, Cabinet & Chair Maker; J. West Glazier. House, Sign, & Fancy Painter (both of Philadelphia); Ketchum & Ellis, Brokers and Commission Merchants (of New York); and others. Each about 3" x 4".6. [15 portrait silhouettes]: Each about 3.25" x 2.5". Eleven with part of the Peale Museum's embossed blind stamp.An arresting grouping of many rare and unique pieces of ephemera, playfully arrayed in a striking style by a very precocious girl.

        Art de se préserver de l'action de la flamme, appliqué aux pompiers et à la conservation des personnes exposées au feu; avec une série d'expériences faites en Italie, à Genève et à Paris. [Bound with:] Expériences faites a Londres pour perfectionner et faire connetre plus genéralement l'art de se preserver de l'action de la flamme.

      Paris: Madame Huzard (née Vallat la Chapelle), 1830. First editions, in a stunning contemporary red morocco binding, of these important and beautifully illustrated works on fire-fighting including, among other things, the invention of the first fire helmet which allowed respiration during fires and protected the fire-fighter from inhaling hot air and smoke. Both works are very rare, especially when complete with the fifth plate which is almost always missing. The 'Apparatus Aldini' was a thick mask of asbestos worn over the head; another mask made of woven iron wire was placed over the first. The device provided a measure of heat protection, provided the wearer was able to maintain the air space between the two masks and not allow the iron mask to touch the inner mask. The functionality of the mask left much to be desired, but the scientific testing by Aldini was ground breaking − he conducted tests of his apparatus under actual fire conditions. This was the start of serious efforts to protect fire-fighters from smoke as they operated at fires. The first work describes the equipment and tests carried out in Milan, Turin, Geneva and Paris; the second work describes tests carried out for the Royal Society in London. A contemporary account of Aldini's equipment, and the tests he carried out, was published in the Philosophical Magazine (vol. 7, January-June 1830, pp. 148-50), of which the following account is a paraphrase. The fire protection suit designed by Aldini had two layers: the inner was a thick tissue of asbestos, or of wool rendered fire-retardant by soaking in saline solution; the outer was made from an iron wire-gauze. Aldini found this gauze to be impervious to flame, a property whose discovery he ascribes to Sir Humpry Davy who made use of it in his construction of the safety-lamp. The head-piece consisted of an asbestos cap fitting close to the skull, and covering the throat, having holes made in it for the nose and mouth; a space left between the cap and the helmet allowed air to be trapped for breathing. The helmet had a mask in front and spectacles were also provided for the eyes, lined with fine brass wire-gauze. The fireman was also provided with a pair of boots, a shield to protect him from any strong jet of flame, and a basket covered with wire-gauze and strapped to his back for carrying a child through the flames. Ropes and gloves of asbestos allowed the fireman to carry red-hot iron bars.   In a first test, a fireman wearing Aldini's suit subjected his face to the flame of a straw-fire in a chafing dish for 90 seconds without injury. In a second experiment, two parallel hedges of straw and brushwood were formed about 3 feet apart, piled on bars of iron. These were set alight causing flames to fill the space between the hedges and rise to a height of at least 9 feet. Six firemen wearing Aldini's suits walked slowly between the hedges and five of them were able to remain in the fire for 2 minutes 22 seconds unharmed; the other was carrying an 8-year-old child in his basket, protected only with a mask of inflammable cloth, and retreated after one minute when both fireman and child were unharmed. It was surprising that the firemen in these tests were able to continue breathing for so long: the eminent French chemist Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac pointed out that when a furnace is heated to a high temperature the air within is almost entirely deprived of oxygen. Gay-Lussac suggested that the men were able to breathe thanks to a current of air from the space between the two garments. Aldini proposed to enhance this effect by supplying air to the suits from a portable reservoir connected to the suits by a cable.   The works also discuss the relative merits of asbestos and wool as fire-retardant materials. To be most effective, the wool must be steeped in a solution of sal-ammoniac and borax, or alum, but it is still cheaper than asbestos, even though not quite as effective.   Aldini (1762-1834) is best known for his work on animal electricity. He was born in Bologna and graduated in physics at the University of his native town in 1782. As nephew and assistant of Luigi Galvani (1737-98), he actively participated in a series of crucial experiments with frog's muscles that led to the idea that electricity was the long sought vital force coursing from brain to muscles. Aldini became professor of experimental physics at the University of Bologna in 1798, succeeding Sebastiano Canterzani (1734-1818). He traveled extensively throughout Europe, spending much time defending the concept of his discreet uncle against the incessant attacks of Alessandro Volta (1745-1827), who did not believe in animal electricity. Aldini used Volta's bimetallic pile to apply electric current to dismembered bodies of animals and humans; these spectacular galvanic reanimation experiments made a strong and enduring impression on his contemporaries. In recognition of his merits, Aldini was made a knight of the Iron Crown and a councillor of state at Milan, where he died in 1834.   Poggendorff, I, 27; Bourquelot, I, 16; Hirsch, Biogr. Lex.

        [BROADSIDE] Van Diemans Land [i.e. Van Diemen's Land] / Lillies in a Valley Grew / Lillies and Roses

      Birmingham : Jackson & Son, Printers, 69, Digbeth (From 21, Moor Street.), [circa 1830]. Broadside, 230 x 155 mm, laid down on fine linen; three ballads printed in two columns, with Van Diemans Land occupying the entire left column; some mild creasing, mostly confined to the right edge, and a few tiny areas of loss; a good example. Van Diemans Land is an anonymous ballad comprised of eight 4-line verses which tells the story of three men from Nottingham who are convicted of poaching, tried and found guilty at the Warwick Assizes, and transported to Van Diemen's Land for 14 years. The ballad is sometimes known as The Gallant Poachers (from the phrase in its opening line). "... The first day that we landed upon that fatal shore, The planters they came round us full twenty score or more. They rank'd us up like horses, and sold us out of hand, They yok'd us unto ploughs my boys, to plough Van Dieman's Land. Our cottages that we live in, were built of Clod and Clay, and rotten straw for bedding, and we dare not say nay; Our cots were fenc'd with fire, we slumber when we can, To drive away wolves & tigers upon Van Diemans Land ... There was a girl from Birmingham, Susan Summers was her name, For fourteen years transported, we all well know the same, Our planter bought her freedom, and married her out of hand she gave to us good usage, upon Van Diemans Land ...." For a discussion of the ballad Van Diemans Land, see Atkinson and Roud, Street Ballads in Nineteenth-Century Britain, Ireland, and North America (pp 55-6). Atkinson and Roud suggest that this popular ballad was published as a reaction to the Night Poaching Act of 1828, and note "a high degree of textual conformity" between versions printed in Preston, Manchester, London, Portsea, Birmingham, Necastle-upon-Tyne, Edinburgh and Glasgow. Other examples of this ballad, with slight textual differences, are held in Australian collections. However, the Birmingham printing of Jackson & Son is unrecorded in Australian libraries. A variant, printed on a broadside with the ballad Sweet Home and published in Newcastle-on-Tyne by Fordyce around 1830 (Ferguson, 1402c), is held in the collection of the National Library of Australia; while the State Library of New South Wales holds another separately issued broadside with the ballads Van Diemans Land and Pretty Caroline, published in London by Such. Another version of the ballad was published in The everlasting songster, containing a great variety of sentimental, comic and other songs, for the present year (Lincoln : Printed by and for R.E. Leary, Silver-Street, n.d.).

The Pilgrim's Progress. With a life of John Bunyan by Robert Southey, Esq… Illustrated with engravings. London: John Murray, [&] John Major, 1830. First 'John Major' edition. Extra-illustrated with an additional fifteen engraved plates including two by John Martin. Octavo (8 9/16 x 5 3/8 inches; 218 x 137 mm.). civ, 411, [1, imprint] pp. Engraved portrait of John Bunyan, two engraved plates by John Martin and thirty illustrations in the text by Charles Nesbit, John Jackson, and others. Extra illustrated by the insertion of fifteen engraved plates including two by John Martin.Finely bound in contemporary crimson morocco, covers with triple line gilt border surrounding a triple line border in blind in turn surrounding a decorative ornamental gilt panel. Spine with five shallow raised bands decoratively tooled and lettered in gilt in compartments, gilt ruled board edges, elaborate wide gilt turn-ins light blue watered silk liners and end-leaves decorated in gilt, all edges gilt and elaborately gauffered. Small rectangular red leather bookplate "Miss Percy" on front liner. Minimal fading to spine, still a very fine example of an early-to-mid nineteenth century 'Gauffered' binding.This is a very substantial edition of John Bunyan's monumental work, offered here with fifteen extra-illustrations and in an extremely attractive contemporary binding. This edition is the first (and only) to be issued by the prominent publisher and bookseller John Major, whose edition of Izaac Walton's Compleat Angler is so famous. It also contains the first appearance of Southey's life of John Bunyan.Gauffered edges are first gilded and then further decorated by impressing finishing tools into the textblock edge surface. The technique has been used for expensive bindings over many centuries. Almost all gauffering was done with pointillé tools, or, as in many examples, the designs were built up with repeated impressions of a large dot. Pointillé tools, as well as those cut in outline, produce delicate effects and are more easily impressed on a hard paper surface than are solid tools. The term comes from the French word for honeycomb, and also applies to the practice of crimping or fluting cloth with heated gauffering irons.

Matsell> of New York bound in, well bound in strong mid-20th century cloth, spine lettered in gilt. A very good copy of an influential book. First, and only, edition. McCoy C.558. Sabin 16619. A powerful argument favouring 'untrammelled discussion, in its utmost latitude'. 'The liberty of the press is a phrase in every body's mouth. It forms one of the common-place panegyrics of what are called free governments. It is one of the boasts of those who admire that nonentity the British constitution. It is supposed to flourish particularly in these United States, and to form a distinguishing feature of our American governments. I hardly know in which of them to look for it.' [p.39]. Thomas Cooper (1759-1839), 'president of Columbia College, in South Carolina, had 30 years earlier been the defendant in a sedition trial. His doctrines on a free press, he writes, grew out of the earlier statements of Milton (Areopagitica>, 1644), Anthony Collins (1724), his own earlier tract (1787), Robert Hall (1821), Samuel Bailey (1821), and Thomas Herttell (1828). His legal researches led him to protest against the common law doctrine of libel and blasphemy. Appendix I deals with heresy and blasphemy. [McCoy, Freedom of the Press: an annotated bibliography>, 1968, C.558]. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
