        CLINIQUE DE L'HÔPITAL SAINT-LOUIS, OU TRAITÉ COMPLET DES MALADIES DE LA PEAU, CONTENANT LA DESCRIPTION DE CES MALADIES ET LEURS MEILLEURS MODES DE TRAITEMENT

      Paris: B. Cormon et Blanc, 1833. Second Edition. 570 x 370 mm. (22 1/2 x 14 1/2"). 2 p.l., xxiv, 390 pp. Second Edition. Contemporary red quarter roan over marbled boards, flat spine, panels with blind-stamped cathedral-style ornaments, gilt titling, marbled endpapers, edges untrimmed. WITH 63 FINE HAND-COLORED PLATES, as called for. Wellcome II, 31. Joints and extremities a bit rubbed, corners bumped and worn through to boards, but the utilitarian binding entirely solid and not entirely unappealing. Frequent (mostly marginal and never serious) foxing, one opening with two thin browns stains to gutter margin, one of these touching a few words of text, occasional minor marginal dampstains, otherwise an excellent tall copy, generally clean and fresh, with generous margins and very pleasing coloring to the plates. This completely untrimmed--and therefore unusuall tall--copy of the expanded (and most desirable) edition of Alibert's groundbreaking work on the classification of skin diseases is valued as much for its moving, beautifully colored plates as for its author's efforts to organize dermatological disorders into 12 groups. The work was preceded by "Description des Maladies de la Peau," published in parts between 1806 and 1814. "Clinique" containts all of the plates used in "Description" and adds seven, depicting erysipelas, variola and varicella, measles, scarlet fever, "roséole idiopathique," and the iconic "Tree of Dermatoses," a visual representation of Alibert's classification system and one of the the most famous images in the history of dermatology. According to "Heirs of Hippocrates," Alibert (1768-1837) "was appointed to the staff of the Hôpital St. Louis where his brilliant work brought the hospital to preeminence in the treatment of skin diseases and earned him an historic role as the founder of French dermatology. He made important contributions with his descriptions of lupus vulgaris, keloid, dermatolysis, mycosis fungoides, and cutaneous leishmaniasis. Among the terms he coined that remain in use today are: dermatolysis, syphilid, keloid and dermatosis. Along with Willan, Alibert was a pioneer in illustrating skin diseases and the hand-colored plates are notable from both the medical and artistic standpoint." The plates here show the various afflictions in sufficient detail to act as an aid to diagnosis, but they also contain elements that bring out the humanity of their subjects, from a ruffled bonnet to a gentle smile on a disfigured face. Because they depict persons who seem very real and often very stricken, the illustrations, mostly stipple engravings, are a stunning invitation to pathos as much as a scientific delineation of maladies. The present copy is 20-50 mm. taller that any we can find described in institutional or auction records.

        Design for a Naval Monument proposed to be erected in Trafalgar Square By John Goldicutt Architect, Member of the Academy of St Luke Rome.

      G. Hullmandel,, London, 1833 - Trafalgar Square Lithograph. John Goldicutt (1793-1842) was a British architect and architectural draughtsman. He put this design forward for a fountain in Trafalgar Square, five years before a commission was established which decided that a monument to Admiral Horatio Nelson should be placed there instead. Goldicutt's monument is not a tribute to Nelson, despite the 'naval' title, but instead a celebration of the House of Hanover and especially of William IV, nicknamed the 'Sailor King' because he had served in the Royal Navy in his youth. The text at the bottom outlines Goldicutt's proposal, suggesting that a terrace be created on the south side of the square, with an equestrian statue of George IV (who had died two years before) added to the existing statue of Charles I. The fountain in the middle of the terrace would be surmounted by a statue of William.Thomas Mann Baynes (1794-1876) was an English artist and lithographer. He was probably the son of the watercolour artist James Baynes (1766-1837). 280 by 450mm (11 by 17.75 inches). BM 1917,1208.4407.

        Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, 1st ed, 3 vols.

      1833. Handsome First Edition of the First Important Work on the American Constitution Story, Joseph [1779-1845]. Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States; With a Preliminary Review of the Constitutional History of the Colonies and States, Before the Adoption of the Constitution. Boston: Hilliard, Gray and Company, 1833. Three volumes. xxxiv, [ii], 494; [ii], 555; [ii], 776 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, lettering pieces and blind fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Light toning to text, some leaves have finger smudges, creases or foxing , a few leaves have brief early annotations. A handsome set. * First edition. Story's Commentaries was the most substantial and influential work written on the American Constitution before the Civil War, and it remains an important work today. Written while Story was Dane Professor at Harvard Law School and an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, it presented a strongly Nationalist interpretation. It is divided into three books. Book I contains a history of the colonies and discussion of their charters. Book II discusses the Continental Congress and analyzes the flaws that crippled the Articles of Confederation. Book III begins with a history of the Constitution and its ratification. This is followed by a brilliant line-by-line exposition of each of its articles and amendments. Comparing it to the Federalist, James Kent said that Story's work was "written in the same free and liberal spirit, with equal exactness and soundness of doctrine, and with great beauty and eloquence of composition. (...) Whoever seeks...a complete history and exposition of this branch of our jurisprudence, will have recourse to [this] work, which is written with great candor, and characterized by extended research, and a careful examination of the vital principles upon which our government reposes.": cited in Marvin, Legal Bibliography 669-670.

Bildhafte Zeichnung mit sehr differenziert durchgearbeiteter Tiefenwirkung durch unterschiedliche Schaffuren, Aquarell und Deckweißhöhung.

G. Steffan in München zunächst die Zeichenkurse das Polytechnikums und dann die Akademie der Bildenden Künste. Beeinflußt von Carl Rottmann und den Niederländern, wandte er sich der realistischen Landschaftsmalerei zu. Steffans Atelier wurde zum Mittelpunkt der Schweizer Künstler in München. Mit zahlreichen Kollegen unternahm er Studienreisen in die Schweizer Alpen. - Aus Sammlung K.E. Hasse, Göttingen (Lugt 860), recto mit dem Stempel. - Sehr sauber und farbfrisch erhalten.

      Derby; Henry Mozley & Sons, 1833. - SECOND EDITION. 16 mo. 232 pp. Book Condition: Very Good. Sympathetically recased in beige cloth with original boards laid-on; brown cloth with black titles to upper board and advertisements to lower. Boards a little surface scuffed with wear at corners. A little sporadic foxing; endpapers lightly toned with cleaner area where pencilled price has been erased. No annotation or inscriptions. Bitting and Axford attribute this work to Eliza Acton from the statement " By the Author of Modern Cookery" but Cagle ( A Matter of Taste pp 632) argues convincingly that it is more likely to be the publisher Henry Mozley, who produced a work of this name in 1818, while Acton's was published well after publication of this title, in 1845. The subject matter covers a wider remit than modern readers might expect, including pickles, meat and fish pastes and alcoholic drinks as well as syllabubs, jellies, jam, and a wide variety of cakes and sweets. Very scarce in original binding ; both Copac and Worldcat locate only 2 copies of this edition and 1 copy of the 1826 First. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Answer to a Pamphlet Entitled Observations on the Reject Local Courts Jurisdiction Bill

      1833 - (CRUIKSHANK, George) (BROUGHAM, Lord Henry Peter). An Answer to a Pamphlet Entitled Observations on the Reject Local Courts Jurisdiction Bill, Addressed to the Trading Interests. London: Richards, 1833. Slim octavo, early 20th-century full blue polished calf, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, black morocco spine labels, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt, uncut; pp. 16. Original proof of the frontispiece. Housed in custom clamshell box. $1500.First edition of this scarce political pamphlet attacking Lord Brougham&#146;s promotion of the Local Courts Bill, with humorous frontispiece by George Cruikshank entitled "A Local Court." Accompanied by an original trial proof. Beautifully bound by Zaehnsdorf.On November 25, 1830, Henry Brougham was sworn in as Lord Chancellor and immediately threw himself into a campaign for legal reform. "Pursuing the work of law reform, he was the means of effecting considerable improvements in the court of chancery, the abolition of the court of delegates, the substitution for it of the judicial committee of the privy council, and the institution of the central criminal court Though his Local Courts Bill of 1830 fell through, it prepared the way for the present system of county courts" (DNB). Brougham promptly denounced the defeat of his Local Courts Bill and provided new legal arguments for its importance. This anonymous pamphlet (purportedly written by an attorney in King&#146;s Bench Walk), challenges Brougham&#146;s suppositions and provides an alternative solution. Caricaturist George Cruikshank, who supplied the humorous frontispiece, is considered "one of the most productive and individualistic of English illustrators He could toss off city types and scenes from memory and possessed an enthusiastic middle-class following. Cruikshank was at his best as an interpretive illustrator in books that permitted him to exercise his talent for comic exaggeration" (Hodnett, 114). Cohn 35. Armorial bookplate.Pamphlet fine, ink spotting to margin of original proof (not affecting image). A truly splendid copy, beautifully bound and boxed, with scarce proof of Cruikshank&#146;s frontispiece. [Attributes: First Edition]

        Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States, 1st ed, 3 vols.

      1833. Handsome First Edition of the First Important Work on the American Constitution Story, Joseph [1779-1845]. Commentaries on the Constitution of the United States; With a Preliminary Review of the Constitutional History of the Colonies and States, Before the Adoption of the Constitution. Boston: Hilliard, Gray and Company, 1833. Three volumes. xxxiv, [ii], 494; [ii], 555; [ii], 776 pp. Octavo (8-1/2" x 5-1/2"). Recent period-style calf, blind rules to boards, lettering pieces and blind fillets to spine, endpapers renewed. Light toning to text, some leaves have finger smudges, creases or foxing , a few leaves have brief early annotations. A handsome set. $7,500. * First edition. Story's Commentaries was the most substantial and influential work written on the American Constitution before the Civil War, and it remains an important work today. Written while Story was Dane Professor at Harvard Law School and an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, it presented a strongly Nationalist interpretation. It is divided into three books. Book I contains a history of the colonies and discussion of their charters. Book II discusses the Continental Congress and analyzes the flaws that crippled the Articles of Confederation. Book III begins with a history of the Constitution and its ratification. This is followed by a brilliant line-by-line exposition of each of its articles and amendments. Comparing it to the Federalist, James Kent said that Story's work was "written in the same free and liberal spirit, with equal exactness and soundness of doctrine, and with great beauty and eloquence of composition. (...) Whoever seeks...a complete history and exposition of this branch of our jurisprudence, will have recourse to [this] work, which is written with great candor, and characterized by extended research, and a careful examination of the vital principles upon which our government reposes.": cited in Marvin, Legal Bibliography 669-670.

        Girl's Commonplace Album

      Hempstead/Queens, New York. 1833-1840. Octavo. Stiff white paper wrappers. Edgewear, foxing, and marks, with a couple of pages missing else good. Mary Elizabeth Bedell's common place album spanning 1833-1840 while she was living in Hempstead, New York. The album is filled with pasted newspaper poems and a variety of her musings, poems, diary entries, and seven cake recipes.Bedell has collected 37 poems from various newspapers about romance, God, and death. These clippings are pasted over pages that had been previously written on. The covered pages and several others were used to practice handwriting as the sentences are repeated multiple times. A few diary entries are written, mostly about her family and those that have passed, "I asked her if she was going to leave us she said she would stay if the Lord was willing, but it was his will to take her to himself where there is no more pain or sorrow. His will be done." There are also pages devoted to her family's ancestry, listing her siblings and her father's family information. Seven different cake recipes are written, one for bread pudding calling for, "Two pounds of flour 3 quarters of a pound of sugar, half a pound of butter, nine eggs, a little mace and rose water," followed by instructions. The name "Carman Lush," possibly a boy she favored, is written throughout the album breaking up diary entries and her own poetry, "The Flower you gave me is faded/ The vows you breathed where untrue/ The bosom whose peace you have invaded/ Still sighs but it sighs not for you," and, "Though fate, my dear sir, compels us to part/ Yet I never will share with another my heart." Several times her name is written "Mary E. Lush" but by the end of the album she only writes her name as "Mary Elizabeth". Bedell was born December 1st 1816 and died 1841 at the young age of 24.The Town of Hempstead was first settled around 1644 after a treaty between English colonists and the Lenape Indians was established in 1643. A mural in Hempstead Village Hall depicts this transaction. Today, Hempstead has developed into the most populous village in the state of New York, with a population in excess of 50,000 people and over fifty religious institutions. A beautiful blend of scrapbook, journal, and musings from a young lovelorn woman in the 1840s. .
