        Principles of Geology, being an attempt to explain the former changes of the Earth's surface, by reference to causes now in operation.

      London John Murray -1833 1830 - First edition. 3 volumes, 8vo., 3 frontispiece (2 hand-coloured), 2 hand-coloured maps (1 folding), 1 uncoloured folding map, 5 uncoloured plates (foxed), illustrations in text, modern half calf gilt, red morocco labels. "A classic by the "father of modern geology", presenting the doctrine of uniformitarianism, namely, that the processes of the past must be judged by those of the present. This was important in the development of the Darwinian theory of evolution." (Grolier). Lyell (1797–1875), although he trained as a lawyer and was called to the Bar, always had a keen interest in geology and had attended lectures by William Buckland. "The first volume of Lyell's Principles of Geology was published by Murray in July 1830. Its ambitions were clear from the title— Principles still recalled Isaac Newton's Principia—and the subtitle stated clearly that it was 'an attempt to explain the former changes of the earth's surface, by reference to causes now in operation'. Surprisingly for a work on geology, the volume was devoted not to the remote past but wholly to the present world. Lyell gave a systematic description of modern causes such as volcanoes and earthquakes, sedimentation and erosion, culled from a wide range of sources, including many accounts of voyages and expeditions to remote parts of the globe; however, his main source was the great compilation of the physical and topographical changes recorded within human history, published in 1822–4 by Karl von Hoff (1771–1837) He used Hoff's data to illustrate his own view of the earth as a system of balanced antagonistic processes: erosion balanced by sedimentation, for example, and crustal elevation by crustal subsidence. A preliminary section of the book presented a 'grand new theory of climate' (Lyell, Life, 1.261), which interpreted long-term climatic changes as the products of an ever-changing physical geography: this neatly undercut what Lyell himself had earlier regarded as conclusive evidence for a slowly cooling earth. The second volume of the Principles appeared in 1832; it dealt with modern causes in the organic realm, and particularly with the relation between organisms and their environments. Lyell rejected Lamarck's theory of the incessant mutability of species, arguing instead that they were real stable entities, and that they appeared and became extinct in a piecemeal manner in time and space. Extinctions were attributed not to sudden catastrophes but to gradual changes in the environment, as expounded in the first volume; the origins of species were attributed implicitly to some equally natural process as yet unknown. Lyell's concept of the stability of individual species validated his timescale for the Tertiary era, which formed a cornerstone of the third and culminating volume of the Principles (1833). His review of modern causes, both inorganic and organic, had merely provided the 'alphabet and grammar' of geology (Principles of Geology, 3.7); they were the means by which nature's historical records could be deciphered, in order to reconstruct the course of earth history." (ODNB). Charles Darwin read the Principles whilst aboard the Beagle. The work influenced Darwin so deeply that Darwin envisioned evolution as a sort of biological uniformitarianism. Evolution took place from one generation to the next before our very eyes, he argued, but it worked too slowly for us to perceive. The work is scarce. Only 1500 copies of the first edition were printed. Challinor 125; Grolier, 100 Books Famous in Science, 70; Norman 1398. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Beobachtungen über die Nerven und das Blut in ihrem Gesunden und im krankhaften Zustande.

      Freiburg, Druck und Verlag der Universitäts-Buchhandlung der Gebrüder Gros, 1830, 8, VI, (2), 288 pp., 5 lith. Tafeln, feiner Pappband der Zeit mit rotem Rückenschildchen Tafeln etwas fleckig. Rare - First Edition!Karl Heinrich Baumgärtner's (1798-1886) "Bildungskugeltheorie" was a precursor of the cell theory of Theodor Schwann."But the observations and writings of Milne Edwards may be looked upon as having given, more than those of any other author, position and popularity to the " globular theory." He examined all the principal tissues, and announced that the fibres of the then so-called cellular (fibrous) tissues, membranes composed of these fibres, muscle and nerve, were composed of globules of about the same size, from 1/8000 to 1/7500 inch, in diameter whence he concluded that these spherical corpuscles, by their aggregation, constituted all organic textures, vegetable or animal, and whatsoever their properties or functions. There is little doubt but that many of these so-called globules described by Edwards were' really cells, seen with indifferent instruments, and further distorted by the glare of direct sunlight.Similar, as regards the element of organization, were the views of Baumgartner and Arnold, who were joint observers. They considered the fundamental elements of organization to be the formative globule (Bildungskugel), and the molecular granule (Molecularkügelchen). The first is primarily formed by a simple aggregation of smaller granules first represented by the granules of the yolk united by a formless material. The " molecular granule " arises from a breaking up of the " formative globule." A modification of the " formative globule " out of an aggregation of which" the entire embryo is first formed, is the haematoid body (Hämatoidkörper). This is a nucleated discoid body with a distinct ring-like border (geringter Körperkern mit einem Ringe).Further, " Out of these two kinds of globules and out of formless material," says Baumgärtner, " all tissues are formed, namely, the tissue-fibres (threads) out of the molecular granules, and the haematoid bodies out of the formative globules and newlyformed tissue-fibres. The molecular form is not everywhere equally expressed, which is owing in the first place to the fact that often the molecular granules more or less fuse together, and second, that formless material surrounds the molecular granules and makes their ontline indistinct. The theory here brought forward of the fundamental form of organization in animals may well he called the globular theory."It is evident that the " formative globule," or at least the modification of it called the Haematoidkörper, is nothing more nor less than the nucleated cell, which, however, Baumgärtner did not admit, contending as late as 1842 against the cell doctrine asserting also that in the development of tissues the formative globule never divides to form two, in other words, that there is no such thing as cell division.*Arnold also says that all fluid and solid parts of the human body are resolvable first into a fluid or half fluid material of no determinate form, and second, into granules which are more or less completely spherical-, and in all solid structures appear for the most part as minute globules. The granules, which are the second more important element, occur not only in all fluids and solid parts of the completely formed human organism, but they are also the original and essential constituents of the human embryo. Out of these by their aggregation are formed the most complex tissues of the organism." James Tyson: The Cell Doctrine: Its History and present..., 2nd. Ed. (1878), pp.25-27

        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

      Arthus Bertrand, Paris 1830 - Detailed listing and collations below. Near uniform contemporary half green morocco and marbled paper covered boards Provenance: 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").
