        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).

      London Murray 1832 - First edition. 3 volumes, small 8vo., engraved portrait frontispiece, 6 engraved plates, 2 maps (1 folding), light spotting to plates, contemporary half calf, marbled boards, a fine set. one of the great African narratives completing the navigaton of the river niger. 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.

      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.

        Autograph Note Signed, Washington, D.C., April 24, 1898, to an unidentified recipient, on the Spanish American War Crisis

      - octavo, 1 page, in pencil, some toning to paper, formerly folded, else in good legible condition. ¿Dear Sir ¿ Loose no time in bringing influence to bear on the President to cease hostilities until Arbitration is effected. The Spanish ministry desired to so negociate [sic] before leaving Washington and I can testify that this is a fact, and that the offer was so made. Yours in haste Mary E. Walker M.D.¿ Mary Walker was born November 26, 1832, in Oswego, New York. Her early education took place at the Falley Seminary in Fulton, New York. She graduated from Syracuse Medical College graduating with a Doctor of Medicine degree in 1855. Thereafter she moved to Columbus, Ohio, where she started a private practice. Returning to her home state not long after, Walker married fellow physician Albert Miller, and the couple moved to Rome, New York. Soon after the Civil War began in 1861, Walker began volunteering as a nurse working early on at the Patent Office Hospital in Washington, D.C. She took a break from volunteering her services in 1862 to earn a degree from the New York Hygeio-Therapeutic College in New York City, but soon returned to the war effort. This time, she worked on the battlefield, in tent hospitals in Warrenton and Fredericksburg, Virginia. In the autumn of 1863, Walker traveled to Tennessee, where she was appointed assistant surgeon in the Army of the Cumberland by General George H. Thomas, one of the principal commanders in the Civil War¿s Western Theater. In April 1864, Walker was captured and imprisoned by the Confederate Army. She was released that August, after being held in Richmond, Virginia, for several months. Following her release, Walker briefly returned to Washington, D.C. In the autumn of 1864, she received a contract as an ¿acting assistant surgeon¿ with the 52nd Ohio Infantry, and soon began supervising a hospital for women prisoners and then an orphanage. Walker retired from government service in June 1865. Later that year, in recognition of her courageous war efforts, she was awarded the Medal of Honor for Meritorious Service ¿ becoming the first woman to receive the honor. Over a century later, Mary Walker remains the only female Medal of Honor recipient. After the Civil War, Walker lectured on such issues as dress reform and women¿s suffrage, but did not support a proposed suffrage amendment, contending that the right to vote was already contained in the Constitution. In an unfortunate turn of events, in 1917, the U.S. government changed the criteria for the Medal of Honor and withdrew Walker¿s medal, though she continued to wear it thereafter. She died two years later, on February 21, 1919, in Oswego, New York. Nearly 60 years after her death, in 1977, Mary Walker¿s Medal of Honor was posthumously restored by President Jimmy Carter. Walker¿s letters, as well as her autograph, are relatively scarce. Notable American Women, volume 3, pp., 532-533

Contemporary brown half calf with gilt spine, edges heavier rubbed and soiled, but boards still holding firm. Erste deutsche Übersetzung von Alexander von Humboldt’s Reise Beschreibung nach Lateinamerika, übersetzt von Gmelin und Paulus Usteri, teils wurde die Übersetzung auch Georg Forster’s Frau, Therese Forster - Huber zugeschrieben. Als Alexander von Humboldt von seinen in den Jahren 1799 bis 1804 durchgeführten Forschungsreisen aus den Tropen der Neuen Welt nach Europa zurückkehrte, wurde er von seinen Zeitgenossen als Wiederentdecker Amerikas gefeiert, als zweiter Kolumbus. Mit seiner sich über Jahrzehnte erstreckenden Arbeit einer Auswertung und Veröffentlichung der Ergebnisse schuf Humboldt das größte private Reisewerk der Geschichte. Wie kein anderer verstand er es, den gesamten Raum der naturwissenschaftlichen Erkenntnisse seiner Zeit zu überblicken und vorurteilsfrei nach allen Seiten hin zu erweitern. First german translation of Voyage aux régions equinoxiales du Nouveau Continent, translated by F. G. Gmelin (Vol.1) and Paulus Usteri (Vol. 2 to 5). The translation is also often attributed to Therese Heyne- Forster- Huber, the wife of Georg Forster, who had at some time a close relationship with Wilhelm and Alexander von Humboldt, and often made translations but not under her own name. Between 1799 and 1804, Humboldt travelled extensively in Latin America, exploring and describing it for the first time from a modern scientific point of view. His description of the journey was written up and published in an enormous set of volumes over 21 years. This memorable expedition may be regarded as having laid the foundation of the sciences of physical geography and meteorology. By his delineation (in 1817) of isother-mal lines", he at once suggested the idea and devised the means of comparing the climatic conditions of various countries. He first investigated the rate of decrease in mean temperature with the increase in elevation above sea level, and afforded, by his inquiries regarding the origin of tropical storms, the earliest clue to the detection of the more complicated law governing atmospheric disturbances in higher latitudes; while his essay on the geography of plants was based on the then novel idea of studying the distribution of organic life as affected by varying physical conditions. His discovery of the decrease in intensity of Earth’s magnetic field from the poles to the equator was communicated to the Paris Institute in a memoir read by him on 7 December 1804, and its importance was attested by the speedy emergence of rival claims. His services to geology were based mainly on his attentive study of the volcanoes of the New World. He showed that they fell naturally into linear groups, presumably corresponding with vast subterranean fissures; and by his de-monstration of the igneous origin of rocks previously held to be of aqueous formation, he contributed largely to the elimination of erroneous views, such as neptunism. Humboldt is considered to be the "second dis-coverer of Cuba" due to all the scientific and social research he conducted on this Spanish colony.- Lit.: Fiedler, Alexander von Humboldts Schriften.

        Lettre autographe signée adressée à François-Amable de Brian

      - 7 août 1832, 12,5x19,4cm, 3 pages 1/2 sur 2 feuillets. - lettera autografa firmata da François-René de Chateaubriand destinatari François-Amable Brian, direttore di The Daily. - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Lettre autographe signée de François-René de Chateaubriand adressée au comte François-Amable de Brian, directeur du journal royaliste La Quotidienne.  Ecrite à l'encre noire d'une écriture ample. Quelques mots soulignés. Petite déchirure angulaire sans manque de texte au coin inférieur gauche du second feuillet.  Publiée dans le tome IX des correspondances complètes chez Gallimard. Témoignage poignant d'une époque troublée de l'Histoire de France et de la vie personnelle de l'auteur, cette lettre nous plonge dans les premières années de la Monarchie de Juillet et la vive résistance que lui opposent les légitimistes, avec Chateaubriand comme chef de file. A l'aube du départ de l'écrivain pour la Suisse, les divisions du parti légitimiste le retiennent encore. « Je voulais, Monsieur, aller vous dire adieu avant de partir, le temps m'a manqué et de nombreux embarras m'ont retenu » Chateaubriand écrit cette lettre un mois après son emprisonnement au sein de la préfecture de police de Paris, suite à l'insurrection royaliste manquée de la duchesse de Berry. Proche de la duchesse et défenseur des Bourbons déchus, il est arrêté et accusé de « conspiration contre la sûreté de l'État » ; il sort quinze jours plus tard et fait figure de martyr. Ténor du parti légitimiste, on le charge de plaider la cause de Pierre-Antoine Berryer, célèbre avocat et parlementaire resté en prison à Nantes et victime de la répression qui a suivi le soulèvement royaliste. Ne parvenant pas à obtenir une réponse du ministre de l'Intérieur concernant la libération de Berryer (« celui-ci ne m'a pas même envoyé un simple accusé de réception ») Chateaubriand conte ses déboires à de Brian dans cette lettre. La missive s'achève sur l'annonce de son départ imminent pour la Suisse, où il s'exile fréquemment depuis 1830. Après l'insurrection de la duchesse de Berry, qui a sans succès tenté de renverser la monarchie de Juillet, le parti se déchire. Des vagues d'arrestations frappent les légitimistes, et la duchesse est en cavale à travers la France. Le comte de Brian accuse même Chateaubriand de trahison, s'appuyant sur un article du Times du 4 août 1832, qui lui impute la tenue de conversations secrètes avec le ministre de l'Intérieur, Camille de Montalivet. Bien loin de trahir le parti cependant, Chateaubriand se démène auprès du ministre pour libérer Berryer, grande figure royaliste, qui plaida quelques années plus tôt pour La Quotidienne dirigé par de Brian lui-même. D'un ton amer, Chateaubriand se défend dans la lettre : « Vous savez que je n'ai eu d'autre rapport avec M. de Montalivet que l'envoi de la lettre à moi adressée par M. Berryer lors de son arrestation à Angoulême ». Attaqué même dans son propre camp, il tente à grand peine de rassembler des troupes royalistes désunies et méfiantes. Chateaubriand se retrouve porte-parole d'un parti légitimiste en pleine débâcle et incite de Brian à ne rien publier qui pourrait « augmenter les divisions des royalistes » et lui adresse de sages recommandations (« Le silence me paraît préférable à tout »). Mais l'écrivain ne suit pas ses propres conseils, et publie la même année une série de brochures contre la monarchie de Juillet qui le placent au c

        Lengthy illustrated manuscript entitled "Scraps of Poetry Selected for M[ary]. A[nn]. Jones. 1823"

      Various locations at sea and Philadelphia, 1832. Hand-colored nautical-themed title page and watercolor illustrations throughout including 17 full-page, 2 double-page, 10 half-page, and 27 vignettes (a few uncolored in pencil), 2 inserted pattern samples, manuscript entries titled in colored calligraphic script. 272 pp. 4to [12-1/2 x 8 inches (32 x 21 cm)]. Original quarter leather and marble backed boards. Title and following leaf detached, a few other leaves sprung toward end, a few margins strengthened, tear to edge of one leaf, some wear to covers but overall clean internally, illustrations bright and fresh. In a quarter blue morocco slipcase and chemise. Hand-colored nautical-themed title page and watercolor illustrations throughout including 17 full-page, 2 double-page, 10 half-page, and 27 vignettes (a few uncolored in pencil), 2 inserted pattern samples, manuscript entries titled in colored calligraphic script. 272 pp. 4to [12-1/2 x 8 inches (32 x 21 cm)]. With Numerous Watercolors of Nautical and American Subjects. A fine, profusely illustrated Naval commonplace book kept by a Philadelphia merchant seaman, including numerous full page watercolor illustrations of ships, American locales, patriotic themes, monuments, etc. The album's dedicatee would seem to be one Mary Ann Jones, the beloved of the copyist and illustrator, who includes several poems of a romantic nature dedicated to "Mary" or "Mary Ann" in the album. The identity of the album's creator is unknown, though he signs a few of the illustrations "RJ"--Jones being the last name, presuming Mary Ann is his wife. Several of the illustrations--many of them quite accomplished-have a nautical theme; these include a fine, full page illustration of the Brig Latona (from which a few of the entries are dated); a double-page illustration of an American and a British ship at sea; a full-page illustration of a ship in dry dock; a half-page illustration of a ship navigating a lake; a title-page vignette with a trio of American ships at sea; American ships in a harbor; and others. A number of the non nautical-themed illustrations have patriotic or American subjects, including a double-page illustration of an American army camp with a uniformed guard and a soldier on horseback; an allegorical tribute to Washington incorporating an eagle and United States insignia; Washington's tomb; the Bunker Hill monument; the Philadelphia Bank; a natural bridge in Virginia; Water Works in Centre Square, Philadelphia (uncolored pencil sketch), and others. Non-American and decorative subjects include a "View of a Mosque near Bussorah," graveyard scenes, an Irish cabin, various monuments and sepulchers, village scenes, architectural studies, cathedral interiors, a lighthouse, Napoleon's pillar, a portrait of a lady, several roses, a lyre, an urn, etc. Entries and illustrations span the dates 1823-1832, a large number of them executed at sea according to notations. Jones seems to have been primarily engaged on the trade route between Philadelphia (evidently his hometown, from which numerous entries are dated) and South America, the most frequent place names provided being Rio de Janeiro, Buenos Aires, and Pernambuco. He made at least one trip North East, however-one entry is dated from Bonavista (Newfoundland) in 1829, another following a few pages later dated Isle of May (Scotland) October 1829. One entry is dated from Baltimore. A partial chronology constructed from the names of ships provided by Jones is as follows: Ship Hebe, May-August 1823 and January-May 1824; Brig Liberty, Buenos Aires, May 1825; Brig America, Pernambuco (Brazil), August 1826; Brig Elbe, September-October 1826; Brig Latona, March-May 1827; Brig Florenzo, Rio de Janeiro, January 1828. Several layovers in Philadelphia are noted at dates in between the above, and a large number of entries are undated. One of the most extensively and competently illustrated naval commonplace books we have encountered.

        Anleitung zur Krankenwartung.

      Berlin, Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1832, 8, X, 182 pp., Halbledereinband d.Zeit Rücken erneuert. Erste Auflage dieses seltenen Buches! Zwar hat Franz Anton Mai (1742-1814) das Verdienst 1781 die erste Krankenwärterschule gegründet zu haben, jedoch scheiterte Mais gemeinnütziges Streben am Widerstand seiner Kollegen, die ihn der "Pfuscherausbildung" bezichtigten so gebührt Johann Friedrich Dieffenbach (1792-1847) der Ruhm die erste, beständige und anerkannte Institution dieser Art 1831 begründet zu haben. "Die verdienstvolle Fürsorge Dieffenbach hinsichtlich einer besseren Pflege und Wartung der Charitéinsassen äußerte sich darin, das er dem Kuratorium der Anstalt die Anregung zur Gründung einer Krankenpflegerschule gab. In der Tat wurde diese - die erste ihrer Art in Deutschland - im Jahre 1831 begründet, und der, der sie ins Leben gerufen hatte, wurde zu ihrem Direktor ernannt. In dieser Schule erhielten Personen männlichen und weiblichen Geschlechts, welche über die sittliche Führung gute Zeugnisse beibringen, auch lesen und schreiben konnten sowie die körperliche Qualifikation besaßen, Unterweisung in der Krankenpflege in einem halbjährigen Lehrkursus, der in der Charité abgehalten wurde, erwarben die Schüler dann nach Ablegung eines Examens den Titel "Geprüfte Krankenwärter bzw. Krankenwärterinnen". Das gedruckte Namensverzeichnis dieses geprüften Wärterpersonals lag im Aufnahmebüro der Charité und in den Apotheken zur Einsicht des Publikums bereit. Ein Teil des Personals fand Anstellung in der Charité, ein Teil tat Dienst in der privaten Krankenpflege. Das neue Amt gab Dieffenbach Veranlassung eine "Anleitung zur Krankenpflege", die er seinen "Gönnern", dem alten Heim und Barez, dem Direktor der jüngst eingerichteten Kinderabteilung der Charité, widmete, zu verfassen." R. Lampe, Dieffenbach, p.53 Unmißverständlich prangerte er die Verhältnisse in den Krankenhäusern an: "Manches was ich über gegenwärtigen Zustand des Wärterwesens gesagt habe, mag zu stark aufgetragen erscheinen man tue aber nur selbst einen Blick in dieses Unwesen hinein, besonders wie man es in Hospitälern kennen gelernt, und man wird es treu gezeichnet finden". Weit davon entfernt, pauschal alle in der Krankenpflege Tätigen als unqualifiziert und rücksichtslos anzusehen, stellte er fest, natürlich gäbe es auch "Menschen, welche mit der größten Aufopferung und Liebe, mit wahrlich himmlischer Geduld den Leidenden trösten, den Schwachen laben und erquicken". Das hochherzige humanitäre Anliegen des Krankenpflegeberufes charakterisierte Dieffenbach folgendermaßen: "Einen Kranken gehörig warten und pflegen, in Leiden und Not ihm hilfreich zur Seite stehen, ihn heben, ihn tragen, ihn betten und erquicken, das ist ein edler Beruf, aber ein schweres Geschäft". cf.- W. Genschorek, Wegbereiter der Chirurgie, Dieffenbach..., p.64ff.
