         Nouveaux principes de la Philosophie Naturelle, Déduits d'observations et d'expériences de Physique très faciles à renouveler, et appliqués à la Physiologie universelle, au Magnétisme et à l'Electricité; à la théorie de la Lumière et des Couleurs, ainsi qu'à la théorie de l'Audition; et servant à démontrer qu'il ne peut pas ne point y avoir de mouvement spontané dans la Nature.

      Paris, Bachelier, 1832. - in-8. XII. 531pp. 1 tableau et 2 planches dépliants hors-texte. Demi-percaline, dos orné (reliure de l'époque). Edition Originale de cette collection de textes scientifiques sur divers sujets: trois études de "Physiologie universelle" (pp.1-116 et 225-324), "Mémoire sur le Magnétisme" (pp.117-148), "Mémoire sur de nouvelles manières de charger la Bouteille de Leyde, desquelles dérivent de nouveaux principes pour la vraie Théorie de l'Electricité" (pp.149-182), "Dissertation sur le Calorique et sur les principales sources dont il émane" (pp.183-224), "Nouvel Essai sur la Lumière et les Couleurs, renfermant la vraie théorie de ces grands phénomènes, fondée sur les résultats évidents et incontestables d'expériences infiniment simples: ouvrage utile aux opticiens et aux peintres, et intéressant pour tous ceux qui aiment à se rendre raison de leurs sensations. Troisième édition" (pp.325-484) et enfin un "Essai sur la Théorie de l'Audition, et vues nouvelles sur la composition de l'atmosphère. Seconde édition" (pp.485-531). On ne sait presque rien sur Jean Nicolas Déal: rentier et atteint d'une infirmité le privant de l'usage de la parole, il publia divers ouvrages sur les sciences dans lesquels il réfutait les théories généralement admises, comme celles de Newton sur la lumière et les couleurs. Selon Caillet, il fut membre de l'Ordre des Néo-Templiers de Fabre-Palaprat. Ses livres sont très rares. 2 lithographies dépliantes en couleurs et 1 tableau dépliant intitulé "Tableau Synchronistique de l'Univers Sensible". Envoi autographe de l'auteur à Alexandre Gilles, qui l'offrit à son tour à l'ingénieur franco-cubain Julio Sangebien. Taches marginales aux premiers et derniers feuillets. Quelques rousseurs.

         Narrative of the Capture and providential escape of misses Frances and Almira Hall,

      1832 - two respectable young women (sisters) of the ages of 16 and 18 who were taken prisoners by the savages, at a frontier settlement.First edition. Woodcut frontipiece (laid down). 8vo. Later half morocco, gilt, original pictorial yellow wrappers bound in, title page repaired. 24pp. [St Louis], Rare. The last copy of the first edition to appear at auction was in 1991. At a time when cholera was spreading across the United States, many of the frontier towns in Illinois were also under attack as part of the Black Hawk War. The narrative here states that the Sauk and Fox tribes were primarily responsible and in the first, and most significant, raid on Indian Creek Frances and Almira Hall were taken captive. They'd spent two days on horseboack before learning that the reason they'd been spared was so that ?they would become the adoptive brides of the two young chiefs by whom they were first seized? The two girls received ?kind and civil treatement?, which is attributed to divine providence. Ten days past before they were bought by about 50 Winnebagoes (sent by friends of the girls) who then delived the girls to safety at Galena, Illinois. The real names of the two girls were Rachel Hall (later Munson) and Sylvia Hall (later Horn). Also included is the tale of Philip Brigdon, a Kentuckian who was also captured along with the girls and survived 22 days among them. He was treated in an altogether different manner, which along with the surfeit of scalps and lack of prisoners, was attributed to ?Black Hawk, the blood thirsty chief who was the prime mover and instigator of the war.? The pamphlet concludes with a sections on ?Indian Depredations? and ?Customs of the Western Savages.? The Black Hawk War began in April 1832 when the Sauk crossed the Missippi River into Illinois, hoping to resettle land that had been ceded in a treaty of 1804. Hostilities began in earnest on May 14 when the US fired on a Sauk delegation and came to a close in July after the Battle of Wisconsin Heights. cf. Baldwin, History of La Salle County, Ill, 1877 pp95-104; Howes, H61; Sabin 29767. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

         THE DRAMATIC WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKSPEARE: WITH GLOSSARIAL NOTES, A SKETCH OF HIS LIFE, AND AN ESTIMATE OF HIS WRITINGS. NEWLY ARRANGED AND EDITED

      London: Moon, Boys, & Graves, 1832. Full Leather. Very Good binding. Folio. From the Preface: "The present collection of Shakspeare's Plays differs in arrangement from any that has hitherto been published. The Tragedies, Comedies and Historical Plays are divided; and in each division, the consecutive order of the pieces has reference to the country in which the action is laid, or to the epoch at which it is supposed to have taken place".Certainly a unique approach, coupled with printing of all of the plays as pages octavo in size and arranged consecutively, four on each folio page. Illustrated with 100 engraved plates, including two engraved portraits of Shakespeare. The Moon, Boys & Graves concern obtained the plates from the Boydell Shakespeare Gallery and the dramatic images are "depicted from the powerful pencils of Reynolds, Opie, Northcote, Smirke, Stothard, Westall, Howard, Romney, and others" [Preface]. There are as well numerous text illustrations grouped in 8vo. size. Most of the plates have some degree of foxing, mostly (though not always) limited to the borders. One of the plates illustrating Julius Caesar has a distinct but not strong tide-line.Bound in brown morocco with elaborate gilt borders to the boards, turn-ins with gilt dentelles, all edges gilt, raised bands with gilt decorations. There is a very discreet patch to the bottom of the spine. An attractive ex-libris is on the pastedown. Very Good binding.

         Procès Complet des Saint-Simoniens. Avec les Portraits des Accusés. [Caption title:] Procès contre les Saint-Simoniens. Cour d'assises de la Seine (Première Section). Présidence de M. Naudin. Audience du 27 août 1831 [i.e., 1832]

      Paris: B. Warée Aine, au Palais de Justice [Impr. Hippolyte Tilliard], 1832. With two plates. Pp. [1]-33, [2], 33-45, [1] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Disbound. Plates closely trimmed with old folds. With two plates. Pp. [1]-33, [2], 33-45, [1] pp. 1 vols. 8vo. Advocating the Equality of Women 1832: Trial of the followers of Saint-Simon. At the funeral of influential social thinker Claude-Henri de Rouvroy, comte de Saint-Simon (1760-1825), his disciples founded a movement to foster socio-political cooperation and development for the common welfare of humanity. Even before the trial, a schism had split the movement. Olinde Rodrigues, an original disciple of Saint-Simon, founded an organized religious movement in December 1831. Account of the August 1832 trial of Prosper Enfantin (1796-1864) and his fellow Saint-Simonians for illegal assembly and public meetings at which, advocating the equality of women through spoken discourse and printed works, they commited crimes "in violation of public morality and good morals" (outrage à la morale publique et aux bonnes moeurs). "La supériorité que, d'après les lois, l'home exerce en certains cas sur la femme, est, suivant les Saint-Simoniens , un autre abus auquel il faut mettre un terme. De la des principes nouveaux sure le marriage, sur le divorce et des principes nouveaux sure le mariage; ces principes et els ecrits dans lesquels ils sont exposés, sont signalés commes contraires à la morale publique et aux bonnes moeurs." The title leaf is printed as an unsigned first leaf of the second gathering. The two plates include a bust portrait of Prosper Enfantin, designated "Le Père" (Father), and a leaf with portraits of the four accused. Prosper Enfantin and Michel Chevalier served six months in prison. Enfantin and a group of his followers subsequently lived in for a time in Egypt, but their technocratic scheme to construct a dam in the Nile foundered. The Saint-Simonian movement had waned by the time of the Second Empire, but their ideals and revolutionary aims influenced many nineteenth-century thinkers, Marx and Engels among them. Only one copy recorded in North America and four in France. Uncommon. OCLC: 466015796 (BNF); 70681674 (Harvard Law)

         On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures.

      London: Charles Knight,, 1832. Octavo (171 x 105 mm). Original purple cloth rebacked to style preserving the original spine label, new endpapers. With 2 pages of publisher's advertisements at rear. Engraved vignette title page, diagrams and tables to the text. Pencil annotations to contents. Spine a little rolled, minor wear and scuffing to extremities and boards, some light foxing to and offsetting from title page, overall a very good copy. First edition of this elemental work in the eventual development of all computational devices. On the Economy of Machinery and Manufactures was Babbage's most successful lifetime publication, selling 3,000 copies. It is considered "a turning point in economic writing and firmly established Babbage as a leading authority of the industrial movement" (ODNB). Prompted by the demands for precision in the construction of his first calculating engine, Babbage had made a conscientious and detailed survey of factories and workshops both in England and Europe. An encyclopaedic record of craft, manufacturing, and industrial processes, as well as an analysis of the domestic organization of factories, the work demonstrates Babbage's remarkable prescience. He proposed many scientific management techniques for the first time, including subdivided work, cost accounting, and merit pay systems. He advocated the decimalization of currency, foresaw the role of tidal power as an energy source, and predicted the exhaustion of coal reserves. "The book is at once a hymn to the machine, an analysis of the development of machine-based production in the factory, and a discussion of social relations in industry … It was at once translated into French and German, both translations being published in 1833. Throughout the civilized world the book had much effect, becoming the 'locus classicus' of the discussion of machinery and manufacturing" (Hyman, pp. 103; 122).

Richard Lander accompanied Hugh Clapperton as his manservant on his second expedition to explore the Niger in 1825. The expedition disembarked on the Nigerian coast determined to strike inland to Sokoto, then descend the Niger to the Atlantic. Most of the party died of malaria en route and it was only Clapperton and Lander who made it to Sokoto. The local ruler, Mohammed Bello, who had tried to trick Clapperton with a false map on his first expedition with Denham, agreed to allow them to return to the sea by way of the Niger. With success all but guaranteed, Clapperton fell victim to malaria and dysentery and Lander was left to make his way bak alone through territory controlled by hostile tribes. Lander returned to Nigeria in 1830 on a government-backed expedition accompanied by his brother John and successfully descended the last section of the Niger from Bussa to the Atlantic.

         On The Economy of Machinery and Manufactures.

      London: Charles Knight, 1832 - Octavo (222 × 140 mm). Original purple cloth rebacked to style, new printed paper label to spine. Cloth a little mottled and rubbed, rebacked as noted and with wear to the corners and edges skilfully repaired, faint spotting to endpapers and blanks, title page possibly washed, else the text is clean, bright and untrimmed. First edition. Large-paper presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front blank, "To Mr. Bartholemew with Mr Babbages Compliments". On The Economy of Machinery and Manufactures was Babbage's most successful lifetime publication, selling 3000 copies. Prompted by the demands for precision in the construction of his first calculating engine, Babbage had made a conscientious and detailed survey of factories and workshops both in England and Europe. An encyclopaedic record of craft, manufacturing, and industrial processes, as well as an analysis of the domestic organization of factories, the work demonstrates Babbage's remarkable prescience. He proposed many scientific management techniques for the first time, including subdivided work, cost accounting and merit pay systems. He advocated the decimalization of currency, foresaw the role of tidal power as an energy source and predicted the exhaustion of coal reserves. "The book is at once a hymn to the machine, an analysis of the development of machine-based production in the factory, and a discussion of social relations in industry It was at once translated into French and German, both translations being published in 1833. Throughout the world the book had much effect, becoming the 'locus classicus' of the discussion of machinery and manufacturing" (Anthony Human, Charles Babbage, Pioneer of the Computer). "Economy was a turning point in economic writing and firmly established Babbage as a leading authority of the industrial movement" (ODNB). Large-paper copies such as this one (measuring over 180 mm in height) were produced especially for presentation and are quite scarce, with Babbage himself referring to them on page 167 as "a few in the hands of the author's friends". Yale has a large-paper copy inscribed "R. Whitcombe from the author", but this is the only presentation copy that we know of in which Babbage signs his own name rather than using a generic salutation. A unique and significant presentation copy of the author's most important work. Kress C3013; Goldsmiths 27346; Einaudi 223; Mattioli 158; William I, 198.e [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy]

         Journal of a Residence at Bagdad, During the Years 1830 and 1831, by...

      First edition. 8vo. xvi, 306, (2) pp. Uncut in publisher's dark green cloth backed drab boards, original paper spine label, ownership inscription of a Robert Haldane dated 1838 to the front free endpaper, dark green solander box, gilt lettered to the spine and lined in moiré silk. Small closed split to the head of the upper joint, both hinges opening but holding, a few marks to the boards, a very good unsophisticated copy.An early figure in the Plymouth Brethren, Groves (1795-1853) and his family journeyed to the middle-east via Russia in the late 1820s and early 1830s. He established a Christian mission in Baghdad working alongside the German missionary Karl Gottlieb Pfander. His years in Baghdad were eventful and ill-starred - a plague swept across the city, killing his wife and young daughter, before it was then besieged by the Pasha of Mosul. Gravely ill himself, he eventually escaped the city and moved on to India where he spent much of the remaining 20 years of his life. Robert Haldane (1764-1842) was a Scottish clergyman of a similarly zealous evangelical Protestant faith, explaining his ownership of the book. His own "missions" were more domestic - he founded the "Society for the Propagation of the Gospel at Home" with his brother James.

         Anleitung zur Krankenwartung.

      Berlin Hirschwald 1832 - 1. Auflage. 17,5 x 11 cm. X, 182 S. Broschiert mit kl. Bibliotheksschild auf Vorderdeckel. Sehr gut erhalten. Innen mit Stempel u. Nummer, Buchschnitt teils unbeschnitten, wenige Seiten oben knittrig, sonst sehr sauberes Exemplar. Selten! Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach (* 1. Februar 1792 in Königsberg in Preußen; † 11. November 1847 in Berlin) war ein deutscher Chirurg. Dieffenbach studierte ab 1812 zunächst evangelische Theologie an der Universität Rostock und der Universität Greifswald. Dort wurde er Mitglied der Corps Pomerania (1812) und Sueco-Pomerania. Für das Medizinstudium wechselte er an die Albertus-Universität Königsberg. Von 1813 bis 1815 nahm er als Kriegsfreiwilliger im Lützowschen Freikorps an den Befreiungskriegen teil. Im März 1818 vertrat er die Königsberger Burschenschaft auf dem Allgemeinen Burschentag in Jena. Sein Medizinstudium absolvierte er von 1816 bis 1820 in Königsberg. 1818 gründete er die erste Schwimmschule in Königsberg. Wegen seiner Beteiligung an der republikanischen Burschenschaft musste er 1820 Königsberg verlassen. Er wechselte nach Bonn. Hier wurde er bei Philipp Franz von Walther chirurgisch ausgebildet. Es folgte eine Studienreise nach Paris, wo er Bekanntschaft schloss mit den Chirurgen Guillaume Dupuytren und Dominique Jean Larrey. 1822 promovierte er mit einer Arbeit über Transplantation an der Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg zum Dr. med. 1823 ließ er sich als praktischer Arzt und Operateur in Berlin nieder und war ab 1829 an der Charité tätig. 1824 heiratete er Johanna Motherby (Ehe bis 1833), die ehemalige Ehefrau von William Motherby. eit 1832 Professor an der Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Berlin, wurde er 1840 Lehrstuhlinhaber und Direktor der Chirurgie der Charité. Er starb im Alter von nur 55 Jahren. Er ist auf dem Friedrichswerderschen Friedhof bestattet. Sein Grab war von 1962 bis 2012 als Ehrengrab der Stadt Berlin gewidmet. Die Berliner Dieffenbachstraße ist nach ihm benannt. Dieffenbach gilt als Wegbereiter der Transplantation sowie der plastischen Chirurgie. Die „Tenotomie" der Achillessehne beim Klumpfuss geht auf ihn zurück. Außerdem machte er sich um die Bluttransfusion verdient. Er war einer der ersten deutschen Anwender der Äthernarkose am Menschen, nachdem er, gemäß einer Auflage durch den preußischen König, diese zunächst an einem Bären erprobt hatte. Seine Abhandlung Der Aether gegen den Schmerz von 1847, mit der er die Äthernarkose in Deutschland einführte, gilt als Meilenstein der deutschen Anästhesie. Er schrieb dazu: „Der schöne Traum, daß der Schmerz von uns genommen, ist zur Wirklichkeit geworden. Der Schmerz, dies höchste Bewußtsein unserer irdischen Existenz, diese deutlichste Empfindung der Unvollkommenheit unseres Körpers, hat sich beugen müssen vor der Macht des menschlichen Geistes, vor der Macht des Aetherdampfes. Durch sie ist die halbe Todesbahn zurückgelegt, der Tod hat nur noch seines halbes Grauen." Dieffenbach entwickelte zudem operative Methoden zur Schielbehandlung. Von ihm stammt auch das heute vorwiegend angewandte Operationsverfahren der Zirkumzision. Außerdem führte er 1831 die erste Katheterisierung des (linken) Herzens durch. Bekannt wurde er auch durch sein im Jahr 1832 erschienenes Lehrbuch „Anleitung zur Krankenwartung", das neben dem Lehrbuch des Heidelberger Mediziners Franz Anton Mai als eines der ersten Lehrbücher für Krankenwartung in Deutschland gilt. 1846 beschrieb er die operative Vereinigung der Bruchenden einer Pseudarthrose mit Hilfe von Elfenbeinzapfen. Seit 1989 verleiht die Deutsche Gesellschaft der Plastischen, Rekonstruktiven und Ästhetischen Chirurgen eine Dieffenbach-Medaille in Gedenken an den Wegbereiter der Plastischen Chirurgie. Mit ihr ehrt die Gesellschaft Persönlichkeiten, die sich um die Plastische und Ästhetische Chirurgie verdient gemacht haben. Die Medaille wurde von Friedrich Becker (Künstler) entworfen. Im Foyer der Chirurgischen Universitätsklinik Heidelberg erinnert eine Gedenktafel (Medaillon) a [Attributes: Soft Cover]

Lithograph with contemporary hand colouring. on A vellin type paper. paper. Made by 'John Gould' after an anonymous artist. John Gould (1804- 1881) was an English ornithologist and bird artist. He published a number of monographs on birds, illustrated by plates that he produced with the assistance of his wife, Elizabeth Gould, and several other artists including Edward Lear, Henry Constantine Richter, Joseph Wolf and William Matthew Hart. He has been considered the father of bird study in Australia and the Gould League in Australia is named after him. Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. Condition: Good, given age. Edges with an occasional tiny tear. A few tiny spots. Top edge 4 holes; will all frame out. Very light text ghosting. General age-related toning and/or occasional minor defects from handling.
