        Lettre chirurgicale sur quelques maladies graves du sinus maxillaire & de l'os maxillaire inférieur.

      Paris, J.B. Baillière, 1833. - 1 vol. de texte in-8, (6), 77 pp., broché, couverture imprimée, envoi autographe signé à François Broussais, mouillure sur la page de garde, rares rousseurs, très bon état. Edition originale du texte seul, sans l'atlas de 8 planches in-folio. Le texte et l'atlas de cet ouvrage sont tout deux fort rares et ne se rencontrent qu'exceptionnellement réunis. Gensoul réalisa en 1827 (à lâge de 30 ans) la première résection totale du maxillaire supérieur, sur un jeune patient de 17 ans atteint d'un ostéosarcome et désespéré. Cette prouesse chirurgicale, réalisée sans anesthésie, en moins d'un quart d¿heure est décrite pour la première fois dans cet ouvrage. Elle stupéfia le monde chirurgical et valut à Gensoul une immense notoriété. Flaubert cite même Gensoul, à côté d'Ambroise Paré et de Dupuytren, dans 'Madame Bovary'. Comme l'indiqua Patel, aucun chirurgien n'avait osé jusque-là s'attaquer au massif facial, en raison des risques d'hémorragies, d'infection et d'accidents cérébraux. L'auteur rapporte sept autres interventions couronnées de succès (cinq résections du maxillaire supérieur et deux du maxillaire inférieur) et expose de façon précise le protocole opératoire. Notre exemplaire est très désirable, dans sa brochure d'origine, avec un envoi au grand médecin militaire Fr. Broussais. Joseph Gensoul (1797-1858) est né à Lyon, où il étudia la médecine. Il fut reçu à 25 ans au concours du majorat pour le poste de chirurgien en chef de l'Hôtel-Dieu et devint professeur de clinique externe. Il fut un chirurgien remarquable, novateur, audacieux et habile. Il devint correspondant de l'Académie de Médecine. J. Michel, In : J. Willemot et al., Naissance et développement de l'oto-rhino-laryngologie dans l'histoire de la médecine. Acta oto-rhino-laryng. Belge, 1981, vol . 35, suppl., pp. 657-663: " le 26 mai 1827 en présence de plusieurs médecins distingués, il résèque entièrement le maxillaire supérieur gauche de Jean-Marie Viricel, atteint d'une énorme tumeur ostéo-sarcomateuse. Cette innovation merveilleuse excite l'enthousiasme, porte le nom de Gensoul dans tout le monde chirurgical. Lisfranc applaudit, Dupuytren se montre élogieux, Gensoul est couronné par l'Académie des Sciences du prestigieux prix Monthyon. En 1834, l'un des princes de la chirurgie, Sir Astley Cooper lui-même se rend à Lyon pour voir opérer Gensoul. " ; J.S. Billings, p. 99 : " Gensoul first (in 1826) excised the entire upper jaw, in 1827 he removed the parotid gland, and, first in France, excised half of the lower jaw." ; R.A.

        Tulipe de Gesner / Tulipa Gesneriana

      Paris: [C.L.F. Panckoucke, 1833. A beautiful image from "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs": one of greatest flower books ever published by the most celebrated flower painter of all time. This tulip was named after Conrad Gessner (1516-65), a polymath who published the first scientific description and depiction of a tulip in 1561. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in his three great works: Les Liliacees (1802-1816), Les Roses (1817-1824) and the work from which this image comes Choix des plus belles fleurs... et ... des plus belles fruits which was published in 36 parts with 144 plates between 1827 and 1833. The present image shows Redouté at his most assured, combining the best of his artistic background with his skill as an observer of nature. He writes in the preface to the Choix : ''It is with the benefit of experience, and encouraged by the most flattering approval of naturalists and painters of France and abroad, that I undertook took this most agreeable of botanical works. By ceaseless observation of nature, in its constancy and its variety of forms and colours, I believe that I have reached that synthesis of botanical accuracy, composition and colouration that is essential to produce the perfect image of the plant kingdom.' Cf. Hunt Redouteana 21; cf. Dunthorne p 235; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 129; cf. Nissen BBI 1591; cf. Pritzel 7456; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8750. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Langlois. Good condition apart from mild soiling, mostly marginal.

        Dimostrazioni dell' Emissario de Lago Albano

      Paris 1833 - This print was published between 1806-1833. John Wilton-Ely 624The watermark that is present is number 93 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1182 and is dated in the mid 1830sFrom the series "Descrizione e Disegno dell'Emissario del Lago Albano"Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek . In the 20th century his imaginary interiors have been admired by the Surrealists . Reference: John Wilton-Ely

        The Young Cricketers' Tutor: Comprising Full Directions For Playing The Elegant And Manly Game Of Cricket . To Which Is Added "the Cricketers Of My Time" .

      Effingham Wilson 1833 - This classic cricket volume is basically two books in one; the first is more a less an instructional manual, telling us how the game works and discussing the various techniques. The second section, meanwhile, is far more colourful and interesting because it describes the players of Nyren's childhood in the late 18th century, when Hambledon reigned supreme as the leading club in England. Nowhere else in the game's literature are player's from this era described in such detail and with such obvious affection. John Nyren was born in Hambledon in 1764, the son of the club's great figurehead, Richard Nyren. Nyren jnr's collaboration with Charles Cowden Clarke has been the subject of much speculation. But is is safe to say that Clarke more of less reworked into proper English notes and observations made by Nyren when recalling the early days of the Hambledon club under the stewardship of his father, Richard, who for many years ran the Bat and Ball public house outside the village at Broadhalfpenny Down. "Nyren" has run to at least eighteen editions over the last 150 years, mostly with slight editions or ammendments, not least to the title. First Edition. 12mo. 126pp. Engraved frontispiece, by Robert Seymour, of a view of the Mary-le-Bone Club's Cricket Ground, foxed. Original green cloth with title on printed label to front cover. Foxing throughout, page edges browned. Spine expertly restored, new end-papers. Ex.libris EDR Eagar, bookplate. A good copy of one of the bedrock cricket volumes and perhaps one of the best known of all sports books. Scarce.  [Padwick, 390]

        Ixia Tricolor / Ixia Tricolore [Harlequin Flower]

      Paris: [C.L.F. Panckoucke, 1833. A beautiful image from "Choix des Plus Belles Fleurs": one of greatest flower books ever published by the most celebrated flower painter of all time. Pierre-Joseph Redouté was one of the world's great flower painters. Born into a family that had been painters for at least two generations, Redouté went to Paris in 1782 with his brother where they worked as scene painters for the Théâtre Italien. Redouté painted flowers in his spare time. The search for subjects led him to the Jardin du Roi and eventually to Gerard van Spaendonck who made him an assistant. While at the Jardin du Roi, Redouté came to know Charles-Louis L'Heritier, an amateur botanist and writer of independent means. He gave Redouté a full time job as an illustrator, instructing him in plant anatomy. Redouté's scientific understanding of plants contributed greatly to the clarity of his depictions. But it was Redouté's work in stipple engraving and colour printing that was to be of the greatest importance. Stippling and the application of two or three colour inks to one plate were engraving innovations that Redouté brought to French printmaking, and these were brought to perfection in his three great works: Les Liliacees (1802-1816), Les Roses (1817-1824) and the work from which this image comes Choix des plus belles fleurs... et ... des plus belles fruits which was published in 36 parts with 144 plates between 1827 and 1833. The present image shows Redouté at his most assured, combining the best of his artistic background with his skill as an observer of nature. He writes in the preface to the Choix : ''It is with the benefit of experience, and encouraged by the most flattering approval of naturalists and painters of France and abroad, that I undertook took this most agreeable of botanical works. By ceaseless observation of nature, in its constancy and its variety of forms and colours, I believe that I have reached that synthesis of botanical accuracy, composition and colouration that is essential to produce the perfect image of the plant kingdom.' Cf. Hunt Redouteana 21; cf. Dunthorne p 235; cf. Great Flower Books (1990), p 129; cf. Nissen BBI 1591; cf. Pritzel 7456; cf. Stafleu & Cowan TL2 8750. Stipple engraving, printed in colours and finished by hand, engraved by Victor. Very good condition apart a small, soft crease to the top left corner, and some very slight foxing at sheet edges top and right.

        Sepolero Regio, o Consolare, inciso nella rupe del Monte Albano or nel Conv. de PP. Francescani a Palazzuolo?

      Paris 1833 - This print was published between 1806-1833. John Wilton-Ely 644The watermark that is present is number 93 in John Wilton-Ely on page 1182 and is dated in the mid 1830sFrom the series "Antichita di Albano e di Castel Gandolfo"Royal or Consular tomb carved into the rock face of Mount Albano" (John Wilton-Ely)Giovanni Battista Piranesi was one of the leading figures in the development of the neoclassical style in the late 18th Century. As architect, archaeologist, artist, designer, collector, and antiquities dealer, he produced a series of etchings and engravings depicting the glories of ancient Rome. These fine prints served as source material for other architects and designers. He was born in Venice on the 4th October 1720. The son of a stone-mason, he was educated as an architect under his maternal uncle Matto Lucchesi and under Carlo Zucchi. In 1740 Piranesi left Venice for Rome, there he studied etching under Giuseppe Vasi. He appears to have had little success in these early years in Rome and as his father was unable to continue his allowance returned to Venice in 1744. He was soon, however, encouraged to return to Rome by Giuseppe Wagner, a successful engraver and publisher of Venice. This time he achieved success, and a constant series of works, illustrating architecture and antiquities, issued from his studio until his death in 1778. His output in etched plates is enormous (about 1000 numbers in all). While he achieved a work of magnitude in pictorial records of Roman monuments of antiquity and of the Renaissance, and gave immense archæological, antiquarian, and topographical value to this work, the artistic quality always predominates. He was fond of peopling his ruins with Callot-like figures, and "like Callot makes great use of the swelling line" (Hind). He had two sons and a daughter, all of whom helped him in his work and after his death carried on his publications in Rome and Paris. They were Francesco (born 1748 or 1756; died 1810), Pietro (who lived till after 1807) and Laura (born 1750). His position in Rome and in Europe after 1760 was a prominent one. He was well-known figure to the wealthy English visitors in Rome and was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries in 1757. Most of his life was passed in Rome, etching, writing, publishing, and directing a workshop in which the restoration and sale of antiques played a considerable part.He was famous for his poetic views of Rome and also his fantastic imaginary interiors. His skills, allied to his deep knowledge of archaeology, provided the substance for his Vedute (Views), a series of 135 etchings of ancient and contemporary Rome, published from 1745 onwards, which established the popular mental image of the city. Vasi.et Ornamenti Antichi was a collection of 110 etchings documenting large sculptural vases, together with other antiquities excavated (and in some cases created) in Italy in the 18th century. The prints were initially separately issued and sold by Piranesi over a period of several years and subsequently collected in two folio volumes, each with its own title page, in 1778. They illustrate a wide range of genuine antiquities, as well as Piranesi's own collections, from utilitarian objects such as cinerary urns, lamps, and sarcophagi to monumental vases. The plates in Vasi often included text by Piranesi with information about where the objects were discovered and their contemporary location, and the prints bore dedications to his patrons, colleagues, visitors and influential people. He believed absolutely in the supremacy of Roman over Greek architecture, an argument he expounded most forcefully in his Della magnificenza ed architettura dei Romani (On the Magnificence of Roman Architecture, 1761). his romanticized views and imaginary interiors had a profound effect on stage designers, painters of capricci such as Hubert Robert, and even writers: William Beckford, the author of the Gothic novel and Vathek .

London: S. Highley, 1833. 228 x 143 mm. (uncut). Original cloth-backed boards, rebacked, corners a bit worn. Edges of leaves a bit dust-soiled, unobtrusive library stamp on title and plates, but a fine copy. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Bushnan to John Lizars (c. 1787-1860) on the half-title: "Professor Lizars with John Bushnan's best regards." Bookplate of the Birmingham Medical Institute, noting that this copy was the gift of [Robert] Lawson Tait (1845-99).First Edition in English of the rarest book in English on plastic surgery after Carpue's Account of Two Successful Operations for Restoring a Lost Nose (1816). The above work is a translation, prepared by physician and medical writer John Stevenson Bushnan, of the section on rhinoplasty from Dieffenbach's Chirurgische Erfahrunugen (1829-34). Bushnan augmented Dieffenbach's text with annotations, accounts of his own cases and an important, well-documented history of rhinoplastic operations. Bushnan presented this copy to Scottish surgeon John Lizars (see Garrison-Morton 6026), whose letter describing a rhinoplasty operation he had performed in 1831 is reprinted on p. 157; the case is illustrated in plate XXV. This copy later passed into the ownership of another Scottish surgeon, Lawson Tait, who is cited seven times in Garrison-Morton for his contributions to gynecological and plastic surgery.Dieffenbach's clinical work in plastic surgery was "monumental in its variety, inventiveness and breadth of scope. . . . Although Dieffenbach also used the Italian method of rhinoplasty, he preferred the Indian method because of the stronger quality of the forehead skin. . . . [He also] realized that the various metal contrivances of Tagliacozzi and von Graefe for shaping the new nose were largely ineffectual, and he devised many subsequent procedures for trimming and shaping the nose, thus greatly improving the results attainable by the Indian method" (Gnudi & Webster, pp. 321-22). Dieffenbach pioneered many methods and principles of plastic surgery which "have not been improved upon and are still constantly employed" (Gnudi & Webster, p. 321). Zeis 513.

A Lovely copy. (Allibone 2227 for earlier eds) Title continues: For the use of travellers on the Continent, and likewise in the island of Sicily. To which is added an account of the remains of ancient Italy, and also of the roads leading to those remains. Starke, traveller and writer, spent seven years in Italy. This residence and her considerable linguistic abilities that prompted her next publications, particularly the travel guides on which her fame was later to rest. Letters from Italy (2 vols., 1800) reached a second edition and was translated into German. She moved to Exmouth, Devon, before the publication in 1811 of The Beauties of Carlo Maria Maggi, but revisited Italy in 1817–19 and published Travels on the Continent (1820) and Information and Directions for Travellers on the Continent (1824), which went to several editions and translations before being enlarged and republished as Travels in Europe (1832). The various editions and versions enlarged the geographical scope of their predecessors, and brought up to date the very detailed practical advice on accommodation, expenses, food, and itineraries she gave to travellers. Pirated editions appeared as the fame of the books spread. See ODNB.

      London: John Murray,, 1833. 17 volumes, small octavo (167 × 105 mm). All but the last volume finely bound in olive-green crushed morocco by the Doves Bindery to a design by T. J. Cobden-Sanderson (signed on the rear turn-in and dated 1898), flat spine with five raised bands, lettered in two panels and dated at foot, the other panels tooled with floral designs and filled with dots, board-edges ruled in gilt, turn-ins with four-line gilt rules, corners of turn-ins with floral tools to match spine compartments, gilt edges; the last volume (either not bound by the Doves Bindery or subsequently lost) in contemporary half calf, inserted in a later morocco-backed slipcase, spine tooled in gilt to match. Engraved frontispiece and series title to each vol.; vol. I bound without series half-title or printed title. Spines gently tanned, some light marginal browning, an excellent set. A finely bound set from the Doves Bindery, signed and dated relatively early. Cobden-Sanderson established the bindery in March 1893, designing and supervising its bindings. The staff was mainly from Riviere's, comprising Charles McLeish, finisher, Charles Wilkinson, forwarder, Miss Bessie Hooley, sewer (later replaced by Alice Mansell), with Douglas Cockerell the apprentice. The bindery's work in the early days was primarily for the Kelmscott Press, including the famous pigskin bindings on the Kelmscott Chaucers, but eventually the balance of their work was outside individual commissions. The bindery continued until 1921.
