      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) an die außerordentliche Leistung Johann Friedrich Dieffenbachs.; Quelle Wikipedia.; - Seltenes Büchlein!.

        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

        Reise in die Aequinoctial - Gegenden des neuen Continents in den Jahren 1799, 1800, 1801, 1802, 1803 und 1804. Verfasst von Alexander von Humboldt und A(imé). Bonplandt (Bonpland). Erster (bis Sechster) Theil.

      Stuttgart und Tübingen: in der J. G. Cotta’ schen Buchhandl., 1815 - 1832 - 6 Bände. 8 .

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.

In this work he recognized, as a species, Rosa Lauranceana, ascribed its nativity to China, provided a complete description for the species, and recognized 32 variants. It is reasonably clear that he was dealing with segregations from seedlings, which he divided into 2 size-of-plant groups, each of which were subdivided into single and double flowered groups. The divisions subordinate to these were made on the basis of flower color. No fancy names were given nor were earlier names recognized. Each of the variants was given a descriptive Latin name, but without a clear designation of category." (paulbardenroses,com /main_october2002,html) 1001 g

        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

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.

        Huang chao yi tong yu di quan tu. [Complete Map of the Unified Realm of the Imperial Provinces]

      1832]. 1832 - Large map of China consisting of 45 (of 48) engraved plates (each measuring 44,2x30cm, 3 missing sheets supplied in facsimile on original paper). Provincial boundaries coloured in outline, some manuscript annotation (some Chinese in a Western hand, some in French). Title, separate pattern-chart for assembling the sheets, and two leaves of text. Each plate backed onto patterned silk, some minor marginal fraying and surface wear, but overall a very good set. Yanghu [now Changzhou], Bian Zhi Shu Shu [Privately Printed], dated: Daoguang 12 [i.e. In the 18th century several important cartographic surveys of the Chinese Empire were undertaken with the help of the Jesuits using triangulation methods. The first such map ?Map of a Complete View of the Imperial Territory? (Huang yu quan lan tu) was presented to Kangxi in 1718 having been printed from 41 copper plates. The prime meridian of this map runs through Beijing. The Qianlong emperor ordered a further survey of the realm that included the recently conquered regions in the West of China (Xinjiang) as well as new surveys of Tibet and Siberia. This became known as the ?Map of Qianlong in 13 rows (Qianlong shisan paitu) because it could be divided into 13 horizontal rows. That map (also known as Huang yu quan tu) was engraved on 104 copper plates and printed under the supervision of the French Jesuit Michel Benoist (1715-1774) in 1761. All of these maps were printed in the Forbidden City and were regarded as strictly confidential. The present map was compiled by Li Zhaoluo (1769-1841) and drawn by Dong Fangli (also known as Dong Youcheng, 1791-1823) and it represents an amalgamation of the first two maps. Like the previous maps it has a latitude and longitude grid with the meridian running through Beijing. This map is printed in 8 rows and represents an update on the information about the empire - in particular the changing course of rivers and canals. It uses two sets of grid systems, namely the old square Chinese grid (jili huafang) where each square represents a distance of 200li (ca. 100km), as well as the western system of parallels and meridians shown in stippled lines. The text explains that meridians converge towards the north pole and that this information facilitated astronomical observations. The map was apparently printed from engraved plates with the permission of the Imperial Secretariat (neifu) and this represents the first time that the previously confidential Jesuit surveys were made public in China. It covers the area from Sachalin in the east to the Pamirs in the west, from Siberia in the north to the South China Sea. Dong Fangli and Li Zhaoluo were both from Yanghu (now Changzhou, Jiangsu Province) and both were mathematicians. Dong was a maths genius from the youngest age, he passed the Juren degree in 1818, and played a major role in the development of linear algebra. Li obtained the Jinshi degree in 1805. He published several works on geography, history, and mathematics. Both were influenced by Western mathematical trends that had been introduced by the Jesuits. The present map is the first one to make the Jesuit surveys publicly available and it was very influential into the 20th century. Extremely rare. Only two copies in OCLC (National Library of Australia & Library of Congress).

In this work he recognized, as a species, Rosa Lauranceana, ascribed its nativity to China, provided a complete description for the species, and recognized 32 variants. It is reasonably clear that he was dealing with segregations from seedlings, which he divided into 2 size-of-plant groups, each of which were subdivided into single and double flowered groups. The divisions subordinate to these were made on the basis of flower color. No fancy names were given nor were earlier names recognized. Each of the variants was given a descriptive Latin name, but without a clear designation of category." (http://www.paulbardenroses.com/main_october2002.html)

        Shag or Green Cormorant

      London 1832 - John Gould (1804-1881) A selection from Birds of Europe published in London 1832-37. Lithograph with original hand-coloring measuring 14 ½” x 21 ½” accompanied by corresponding natural history description written by John Gould. Condition: Very good. John Gould was without question the most prolific natural history artist of the nineteenth century. He worked during a period of intense fascination with discoveries in natural history, especially regarding knowledge of the wildlife of exotic lands. Gould shared the romantic enthusiasm of his time for such subjects, as well as the popular impulse to catalogue exotic wildlife. He combined his passion for natural history with outstanding scientific, artistic, and entrepreneurial talents. Drawing on these abilities, he embarked on a series of projects that would eventually make him the leading publisher of ornithological illustrations in Victorian Britain. Gould’s unparalleled career spanned five decades, and he produced a monumental series of books of birds throughout the world. Gould planned the Birds of Europe in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. In his preface he stated his mission: “the Birds of Europe, in which we are, or ought to be, most interested, have not received that degree of attention which they naturally demand. The present work has been undertaken to supply that deficiency.” 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. ***If you frame up this item with Arader Galleries you can take a 50% discount off the listed price of this work of art.***

        Mr. Wentworth's Letter of Impeachment... [contained in] A Return of all the Letters addressed by... the Secretary of State for the Colonies, in reply to Governor Darling's Despatches, relative to the Punishment and Death of Private Joseph Sudds..

      London: Ordered, by the House of Commons, to be printed, 1832. A few spots towards the end; neat old library stamp on docket title.. Folio, 55 pp. and docket title; in a modern binding of quarter leather. One of the key pieces in the controversy over Governor Darling's handling of the Sudds-Thomson case, an affair which embroiled the Governor along with key figures in the colony over nearly ten years. This government printing is notable for containing the very long (35 pages) "Letter of Impeachment" published by William Charles Wentworth in his newspaper The Australian. It was a key piece in Wentworth's noisy and articulate fight against autocracy and his defence of the emancipists, though -- as Michael Persse notes in his ADB article on Wentworth -- the 'draft of 'impeachment' prepared by Wentworth against Darling did little damage to the governor's reputation at the Colonial Office, but it certainly undermined Wentworth's, so intemperate was its language'.Darling served his full term as governor, ultimately vindicated though it had been a long battle. Wentworth threw an immense party on his Vaucluse estate to celebrate the Governor's departure from the colony in 1831 where, so the newspaper reported, 'upward of 4,000 persons assembled at Vaucluse to partake of Mr Wentworth's hospitality and to evince joy at the approaching departure. The scene of the fête was on the lawn in front of Mr Wentworth's villa, which was thrown open for the reception of all respectable visitants, while a marquee filled with piles of loaves and casks of Cooper's gin and Wright's strong beer, was pitched a short way off. On an immense spit a bullock was roasted entire. Twelve sheep were also roasted in succession; and 4,000 loaves completed the enormous banquet. By 7 p.m. two immense bonfires were lighted on the highest hill ... Rustic sports, speeches, etc., etc., whiled away the night; and morning dawned before the hospitable mansion was quitted by all its guests'.

        Astur Novae-Hollander

      London: The Birds of Europe 1832 - Sheet Dimensions: 21 x 14.5 in. Frame Dimensions: 32.5 x 26 in. Original hand-colored lithograph. John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains. For the next fifty years, Gould and his wife Elizabeth and artist working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. The Birds of Europe includes amazingly distinctive, and highly realistic images. Gould undertook this work partly in effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. 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 European birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species.
