        L'Antotrofia Ossia La Coltivazione De'Fiori

      Firenze 1834 - 24 hand-colored botanical plates. Red half leather binding, with marbled boards, four raised bands to the spine, and gilt lettering and detailing to the spine. Unfortunately, there is a 4" x 1" light dampstain at the head of every leaf for about the first half of the book. Otherwise the interior is clean, unmarked and quite bright, with only occasional slight foxing. If not for the dampstaining to the first plates, every plate would be in very good to near fine condition. Rear hinge is starting, and front hinge is holding on by only one seam. The leather is cracked about 3" at the tail and 1.75" at the head of the front gutter. Three fore-corners are rubbed through the leather to expose the cardboard below, and the marbled paper is slightly chipped along the lower edge. Otherwise the leather and boards are only slightly scuffed (and look nicer than most books of this age). Gilt remains quite bright. This copy is protected in a lightly rubbed acetate dust jacket. Overall, we are grading the book as fair condition, although parts of it are very good or better. We are happy to send more photos upon request. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Watercolour study of Birds

      1834. Watercolour. Painted on Whatman paper dated 1831. Paintings of both sides of the sheet. In excellent condition. A stunning watercolour study of a demoiselle crane, curmoor, a crow, various thrushes Unfortunately we have not been able to discover any information concerning the artist of this charming watercolour. It is numbered and titled within the image but it bears no signature or date. It is obviously from the hand of an accomplished amateur painter who had a natural talent design and keen eye for detail. Amateur animal and flower painting became extremely popular during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century as a favored pursuit for aristocratic women. Painting was viewed as a necessary talent for young women, and was eagerly pursued and practiced by the upper classes. This skillful painting appears to be a watercolour study of an illustrated natural history text. Published scientific texts such as this were printed throughout the eighteenth and nineteenth century and commonly included illustrations of both flora and fauna specimens. The numbering and titles further confirm that this is a study from a printed source, since this method of identifying specimens was typically used in published volumes. Lovingly rendered and carefully painted, this skillful watercolour is a true work of art.

De là, ce titre de Volupté, qui a l'inconvénient toutefois de ne pas s'offrir de lui-même dans le juste sens, et de faire naître à l'idée quelque chose de plus attrayant qu'il ne convient. Mais ce titre, ayant été d'abord publié un peu à la légère, n'a pu être ensuite retiré.[wikisource].

        The Ladies' Flower-Garden [comprising] ornamental annuals; ornamental perennials (2 volumes); ornamental bulbous plants; ornamental greenhouse plants; British wild flowers.

      London William Smith -1849 1834 - 5 works bound in 6 volumes, 4to (27 x 22cm.), first editions of Ornamental Perrenials & Ornamental Greenhouse plants, 303 (of 304) hand-coloured lithograph plates (47+95+58+60+42), occasional light spotting, original green cloth gilt, pictorial vignettes to spine and upper covers, spines faded to tan, neat repairs to extremities, a very good set. An ttractive set including two first editions of loudon's popular botantical works, containing a wealth of handsome hand-coloured lithographs. Loudon began her literary career with a strange futuristic novel entitled The Mummy (1827), and only began to write botanical works after her marriage to and work alongside John Loudon, the horticultural publisher and writer. Aware that the abundance of technical terms in horticultural books were off-putting to new gardeners, particularly women, she went about making gardening an accessible recreational activity. A self-taught artist, Loudon ranks as one of the most successful female botanical illustrators. Her artistic style, which involved grouping flowers to form delicate bouquets, though unusual for the time was immediately accepted among gardeners. Her attractive illustrations, known for their bright colour, became extremely sought after and were often imitated in designs for decorative products. Nissen BBI 1253, 1237, 1235, 1233, 1236.

        De Corneae Transplantatione. Dissertatio Inauguralis.

      . Bonnae, typis Caroli Georgii, 1834, 4°, 3 Bl., 26 pp., 3 handcolorierte lith. Tafeln mit 8 Abbildungen, feiner roter Halbleinenband der Zeit, Goldschnitt und Rückenvergoldung; feines Exemplar.. Erste Auflage! - Im Jahre 1834 promovierte Wilhelm Thome (1809 (10 ?)-1846) mit dieser Arbeit über die Verpflanzung der Hornhaut. Er experimentierte ebenfalls an Hunden und Kaninchen und konnte sich rühmen, daß die Hornhaut, in fünf von acht Versuchen einheilte, angeblich mit teilweisem Erhalt der Durchsichtigkeit. Thomes Methode bestand darin, mit dem Starmesser etwas vom Rande der Cornea entfernt einzugehen und sie dann mit der Schere auszuschneiden. Später benutze er dazu ein zweischneidiges Messer. Er gewann zunächst das Transplantat auf diese Weise und excidierte erst dann am Empfängerauge. Zur Befestigung verwendete er Ligaturen und verzichtete auf anschließenden Verschluß des Auges, da er sich so einen besseren Abfluß des Wundsekrets versprach." Giese - Angeregt durch Arbeiten von Stilling und Thome führten nach 1840 Ärzte verschiedener Nationalitäten, zu denen Davis, Plouvier, Feldmann und Hauenstein gehörten unter Leitung Desmarres Tierversuche durch, deren Ergebnisse Desmarres 1843 der Academie Royale des Sciences vorlegte und in der er feststellte, daß die Übertragung von Hornhaut eines Tieres auf ein anderes gut möglich sei, daß sie auch anwachse, aber sich bis auf manchmal klarbleibende Randpartien stets eintrübe. Münchow - Wilhelm Thome, am 22. Dez. 1809 geboren in Oberollendorf bei Bonn, studierte seit 1828 Medizin in Bonn und promovierte dort 1834, anschließend setzte er seine Studien in Berlin fort, kehrte 1836 als approbierter Arzt nach Bonn zurück und unternahm von dort aus Studienreisen nach Wien, Venedig, Neapel, Florenz, Rom und Paris. 1838 ließ er sich in Köln nieder und errichtete dort eine Augenheilanstalt, die er erfolgreich leitete. 1846 starb er an den Folgen eines Schlaganfalles. - Engelmann 576; SGC I; Callissen 33, p.21; Hirschberg 344; Münchow, Geschichte der Augenheilkunde p.691; Giese, Geschichte der Hornhauttransplantation, p.44

        Babbage's Calculating Engine [ running Title ]

      Lilly, Wait, Colman, and Holden, Boston 1834 - [2], [263]-545 pages. Cancel title page (?) with Boston imprint (published originally in Edinburgh). We offer the entire Volume LIX, April-July 1934, a quarterly issue of "The Edinburgh Review, Or Critical Journal" containing the Lardner/Babbage article on pages 263-327. The article includes 5 engravings in the text of calculator dials. Front and rear volume wrappers are lacking, remnants of the spine label and paper remain. Occasional light foxing. The whole housed in a custom cloth clamshell case with gold spine lettering "Charles Babbage Difference Engine No 1 | Boston 1834" Disbound. The Edinburgh Review was published in Edinburgh and reprinted in London, New York, and as here in Boston. Of the four, the Boston imprint is by far the rarest with less than 5 institutional holdings in OCLC (versus over 500 for the others). As such, it is the hardest printing of this article to obtain, and can be considered an early American computing imprint. It is undoubtedly the first American printing of this article. This article by Lardner reviews and comments on the following articles: 'Letter to Sir Humphrey Davy.on the application of Machinery to Calculate and Print Mathematical Tables by Charles Babbage', 'On the Application of Machinery to the Calculation of Astronomical and Mathematical Tables' by Charles Babbage (1822), 'Address to the Astronomical Society by Henry Thomas Colebrooke on presenting the first gold Medal of the Society to Charles Babbage Esq. For the invention of the Calculating Machine' (1822), 'On the determination of the General Term of a new Class of Infinite Series' by Charles Babbage (1824), 'On Errors common to many Tables of Logarithms' by Charles Babbage (1827), 'On a Method of Expressing by Signs the Action of Machinery' by Charles Babbage (1826), and 'Report by the Committee appointed by the Council of the Royal Society to consider the subject referred to in a Communication received by them from the Treasury, respecting Mr. Babbage's Calculating Engine and to report thereupon.'' (1829) This 60+ page article provides an extensive commentary and historical perspective on Babbage's work. 'The most extensive contemporary account of the Difference Engine No. 1, written by Dionysius Lardner, a prolific popularizer of science. ''From the technical detail that it contains, much of which can be directly linked to the drawings of the machine, it is evident that Babbage was directly involved with and played a substantial hand in its preparation'' (Bromley 1989, 24) From this article Georg Scheutz first obtained detailed information about Babbage's Difference Engine, enabling him to design and eventually construct his own calculating machine twenty years later' (Origins of Cyberspace 51 referring to the London edition).

        Excursions in New South Wales, Western Australia and Van Diemen's Land, During the Years 1830, 1831, 1832, and 1833

      Richard Bentley, London 1834 - Octavo, with two lithograph plates; a fine, large copy, edges rough-trimmed only, in half red morocco gilt by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Sangorski & Sutcliffe. An honest look at the three colonies. The revised and enlarged second edition. Breton emigrated to Tasmania after leaving the navy in 1827, eventually becoming police magistrate at Launceston. He visited the other colonies, including the recently established settlement at Swan River, as well as New Zealand. He gives an excellent description of Tasmania at perhaps its most difficult time when it was suffering from the depredations of bushrangers and the struggles with the Aborigines. He wrote the book on his return to England, as he says in order to give people who were considering settling in the Australian colonies a realistic and practical view of what the colonies were actually like. This is certainly one of the better-written such descriptive books, and was evidently successful since this second edition was needed just a year after first publication. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Lectures on Political Economy, delivered in Trinity and Michaelmas Terms, 1833

      Dublin: William Curry, Jun. and Company, Longman and Company, London,, 1834. Octavo (220 x 132 mm). Original green cloth and drab boards, remains of paper label to the spine. Acquisition date, 16 June 1891, in pencil to front free endpaper, with pencil marginalia throughout in an unidentified contemporary hand. Half title removed. Spine ends rubbed and corners worn away. Rear hinge split, but still holding. Some general dust soiling, ink splashes and paper stock lightly browned. Withal a sound copy of a scarce book. First edition. Longfield was diverted from his interest in economics by a busy and successful career in law, being transferred from the Whately chair of political economy to that of feudal and English law at Trinity the same year as this publication, and serving as a judge and Irish privy councillor in later years. But it is his brief tenure of the first chair in political economy to be founded in Ireland on which his reputation rests today. It was the American economist E. R. A. Seligman who rescued Longfield from obscurity in 1903, publishing two articles in the Economic Journal, "On some neglected British economists", drawing attention to this, Longfield's first, and his two subsequent publications, Four Lectures on Poor Laws, and Three Lectures on Commerce and one on Absenteeism. "Since then it has come to be recognized by economists throughout the world that in these lectures Longfield produced work of outstanding originality … In 1833 when Longfield gave his first lectures on political economy … the theories of value and distribution developed by David Ricardo and propagated by James Mill dominated the subject. Having shown that he understood these theories better than many contemporary interpreters, Longfield rejected them and presented his own analysis in five lectures. His explanation of value emphasized market prices rather than natural values, stressing utility as of at least equal importance with labour costs in determining value. His theory of distribution was perhaps his most original contribution: in it he put forward a theory of profits as determined by the marginal productivity of physical capital and of wages as determined, not by subsistence, but by the specific productivity of each labourer … indeed he really founded a distinctive 'Trinity College Dublin school of value theory'—but until Seligman wrote they remained completely unknown to economists outside Ireland, and this state of affairs Longfield himself appears never to have sought to alter" (ODNB). In his later years Longfield maintained an interest in economic and social questions, being a founder member of the Dublin Statistical Society and president of the social economy section of the National Association for the Promotion of Social Science. The book was published with two different imprints, the other being by

        Description of the Distinct, Confluent, and Inoculated Small Pox, Varioloid Disease, Cow Pox, and Chicken Pox.

      Boston, Lilly, Wait 1834 - Second edition. 4to. iv, 73 p. ill. Hardcover with spine bound in contemporary leather. Minor wear to extremities. Splitting starting to head and tail of spine. Clean, unmarked pages with minimal toning. Please feel free to view our photographs. After receiving his degree from the Harvard Medical School in 1825, Fisher spent two years studying in Paris with Laennec, Andral, and Velpeau. This book was prepared from materials Fisher collected in Paris. Much of the original edition of 1829 was destroyed in a fire, hence the publication of this little-altered second edition in 1834. "The paintings from which the plates in this volume are engraved, and of which they are accurate copies, were made in the Hospitals of Paris during the years 1825 and 1826, a period at which the variolous disease prevailed epidemically in that city. They were executed by a French artist under my own immediate direction, and were all begun and finished at the bed-side of the patients from whom they were taken" (dedication, p. iii). Fisher's book "is dedicated to James Jackson, from whom he conceived the idea of preparing the work, and is a quarto containing life-size plates made by a distinguished artist. It was a work of considerable importance. Later the plates and unsold copies were destroyed by fire" (Kelly & Burrage, American Medical Biographies). [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Lesky 83. - Boër, Johann Lukas (ursprünglich J. L. Boogers), (1751-1835) begründete die Geburtshilfe in Österreich als selbstständiges Fach. Er lehnte die übertriebene Anwendung der Kunsthilfe bei der Geburt ab und verwies auf die Naturkräfte des Körpers. Unter seiner Leitung in der Wiener Geburtshilflichen Klinik lag die Mortalitätsrate beim Kindbettfieber unter einem Prozent. - "In 1723 forceps had come into general use. Delighted with the beneficial invention, French and German obstetricians . applied them on every occasion, even when there was no need for them. One might have thought that 'Nature had abandoned its delivery job and left it to the obstetrician's instrument' (Boer). Against this busy use of instruments Boer employed his patient procedure of waiting and relying on the natural forces of the organism. In limiting instrumental and manual intervention to the cases in which such assistance was indicated and in 'restoring the delivery power of Nature to its rights,' he became the founder of the new obstetrical natural method . His guiding principle . was that the child should be received from the mother, not torn from her" (Lesky, Vienna Medical School, pp. 52-53). - Titel leicht stockfleckig.

        RELAZIONE ISTORICA DELLA TRASLAZIONE DEL SAGRO CORPO E MIRACOLI DI SANTA FILOMENA VERGINE E MARTIRE DA ROMA A MUGNANO

      BENEVENTO: PRESSO PIETRO PATERNO, 1834. In 8. Dim. 22,5x15 cm. Pp. 199. Bella edizione del 1834 di questa rara opera su Santa Filomena di Roma (secolo IV) scritta dal Canonico Francesco di Lucia. L'opera è composta da tre tomi legati insieme ed è completa. Il nome ed il culto di Santa Filomena nacquero con il ritrovamento nel 1802 di alcune ossa all'interno di una lapide nelle Catacombe di Priscilla a Roma. Per un errore di interpretazione nell'iscrizione della lapide Santa Filomena venne considerata martire, poi tolta dal calendario negli anni 1960. Nel 1805 il Canonico de Lucia richiese delle reliquie dai resti rinvenuti nel Maggio 1802 (ormai ridotti a polvere e frammenti) per la costruzione di un nuovo altare nella sua chiesa a Mugnano del Cardinale.I resti, trasportati da Roma a Napoli arrivarono a Mugnano l'11 Agosto. Nel 1827 inoltre il Papa Leone XII diede alla chiesa di Mugnano i tre tabelloni di terracotti estratti dalla tomba. Nell'opera De Lucia descrive le meraviglie accompagnate dall'arrivo delle reliquie nella chiesa come miracoli (persone sottratte dalla morte), uso dei sensi, cure prodigiose, favori conceduti, apparizioni di Santa Filomena, le immagini della santa Martire vedute sudare, cambaimenti negli oggetti appartenuti alla Santa ecc... In antiporta incisione con ritratto della Santa inciso da Raffaello D'Angelo e all'interno cinque planches. Bellissimo esemplare stampato sulla pregiata carta azzurra. Insieme all'opera un'immaginetta del 1830 circa che rappresenta Santa Filomena. Collazionato e risultato completo. Raro, alto valore Copertina in mezza pelle con titolo in oro al dorso in discrete condizioni generali con usure e parti mancanti ai margini e dorso. Legatura in buone condizioni. All'interno le pagine si presentano in buone condizioni con fioriture e gore d'umidità marginali. Piccolo segno di tarlo all'ultima pagina di indice senza perdita di testo. Beauitufl edition of 1834 of this scarce work about the Saint Filomena from Rome (IV century) written by the Canon Francesco di Lucia. The work is made up of three tomes boudn together and it is complete. The name and cult of Saint Filomena was born with the finding in 1802 of some bones in a grave in the Catacombe di Priscilla in Rome. For a fault of interpretation in the grave, Saint Filomena was considered martyre, after that taken away from the calendar in 1960's. In 1805 the Canon de Lucia asks for some relics of remainings found in May 1802 (reduced in dust and fragments) for the building of a new altar in his church in Mugnano del Cardinale. The remainings, transported from Rome to Naples arrived in Mugnano the 11th of August. In 1827 the Pope Leone XII gave to the church of Mugnano three terracotta slabs. In the work De Lucia describes the wonder accompained the arrival of relics in the church as miracles (people not died), usage of senses, prodigious cares, favours, apparitions of Santa Filomena, the images of the Saint changed, changes in items belonged to the Saint etc... In the frontspice engraving with the portrait of the Saint engraved by Raffaello D'Angelo and five planches inside. Very beautiful copy published in the precious blue paper. Toghether with the work a little image of 1830 circa representing Saint Philomena. Collationed and complete. Scarce copy, high value Half leather cover with golden title in the spine in fair general conditions with wearings and missing parts in the edges and spine; paltes almost detached. Binding in good conditions with cracks. Inside pages are in good conditions with foxings and humidity stains. Little worming in the last page of the index with no loss of text.

Half leather binding with marbled paper board, respined with original red label laid on. Bookseller's label on fep. Prior owner's signature on flyleaf and title page. Subtitle: with chapters on inquests, courts of requests, three trials, arson, larceny, and murder, with full evidence, rules of evidence, and other useful matter and tables. In his dedication "To the Officers of the Army of India", Captain Hough of the 48th Bengal Native Infantry and Deputy Judge Advocate General, thanks the 500 brother officers who subscribed for copies. Although he is also the author of Practice of Courts-Martial (1825), he notes that "The work is new of its kind. The Chapters on Inquests and Courts of Request have never appeared in any similar work. There are no works extant, I believe, on the subjects; except "Hutton" on Courts of Request, a similar work almost out of print. Cases decided both in England and in India may be esteemed by the Army as Precedents: - the cases of Arson, Larceny, and Murder, with full evidence, may also be useful." Published in Calcutta by Thacker and London by Parbury, Allen. An uncommon book, and an important legal reference work for the Victorian-era British and Indian Armies.; 350 pages .

        Autograph letter signed, in English, to John Baron

      Nancy 1834 - Valentin, Louis (1758-1829). Autograph letter signed, in English, to John Baron (1786-1851). 3pp. Nancy, April 25, 1824. 182 x 119 mm. With: Rapport présenté à son excellence le Ministre de l’Intérieur, par le comité central de vaccine, sur les vaccinations pratiquées en France pendant les années 1821 et 1822. 8vo. [4], 99pp. Paris: L’Imprimerie Royale, November 1823. Together 2 items; Valentin’s autograph letter tipped to the first leaf of the Rapport. Quarter morocco, marbled boards in period style. Rapport a little foxed, but fine otherwise.Excellent letter discussing vaccination and Edward Jenner from French physician Louis Valentin, the leading promoter of vaccination in France, to John Baron, Jenner’s first biographer, whose two-volume Life of Edward Jenner was published in 1838. A native of Nancy, Valentin spent seven or eight years in Haiti and the United States where he practiced smallpox inoculation. He returned to France in 1798, the year in which Jenner’s famous Inquiry was published, and in the following year published Traité historique et pratique de l'inoculation (1799-1800), co-authored with François Dezoteux, which was the first French book to mention Jenner’s work. Although at first skeptical, Valentin soon adopted Jenner’s methods and became actively involved in the spread of vaccination throughout France. He traveled to London in 1803 to meet Jenner and two years later published a Notice biographique sur le docteur Jenner (1805), which he reissued in a revised and expanded edition in 1824, the year after Jenner’s death, under the title Notice historique sur le docteur Jenner.Valentin’s letter to Jenner’s biographer mentions the Notice historique,which Valentin was then working on, and other works by him on vaccination and inoculation, as well as the present copy of the Comité Central de Vaccine’s Rapport for 1821-22, which he enclosed with the letter:"I send to you the last report of the Committee of Vaccine for 1821 & 1822 which ought to have been deposited at Gabon’s in Paris. It is very thin as that of 1820. . . ."Your last favor 14th present is arrived very opportunely three days ago. I was anxiously waiting for it and had postponed the print of my Notice hist. on Jenner. Now, it is going on, and I hope it will be more correct than the first, thanks to your kindness and obliging care. But, as to the sum which you believe was not given by the King to Jenner, I have only said: On fit espérer que le Roi donnerait 500£ [it was hoped that the King would give £500] as I had already published in 1802 that the King had paid it, and I had given to Jenner in 1803 a copy of my Résultats de l’inoculation de la vaccine and that he made no objection about such remuneration, consigned in it. I leave the affaire [sic] in doubt. The phrase in the text was impossible to be changed. "My writing is increased of six or seven pages more than the first edition. I wish it might be worthy of your approbation and that of the public. I hope that in eight days I shall have the pleasure of sending to you through the post two copies of it . . . When you have read it please to write and let know your judgement to your most faithfull friend Louis Valentin."Valentin added a long postscript to his letter in which he further discusses vaccination and Jenner:"P.S. I know that De Carro’s work, Vaccination in Grece, Persie &c. [i.e., Joannes de Carro’s Histoire de la vaccination en Turquie, en Grèce, et aux Indes orientales (1804)], which I possess, does not make any mention of that practice by the Bramines in India, but I have quoted his letters published in the Bibliot. britan. . . ."M. Dupau [i.e., J.-Amédée Dupau, author of Notice historique sur le Dr. Edward Jenner, inventeur de la vaccine (1824)] has committed a fault page 8th lines 7, 8, 9 of his Notice for not having repeated exactly what I have said of Washington applied to Jenner. He causes W. to speak so. Wash. was dead, 9 years since, when a French[man] said, in speaking of his [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        De Corneae Transplantatione. Dissertatio Inauguralis.

      - Bonnae, typis Caroli Georgii, 1834, 4°, 3 Bl., 26 pp., 3 handcolorierte lith. Tafeln mit 8 Abbildungen, feiner roter Halbleinenband der Zeit, Goldschnitt und Rückenvergoldung; feines Exemplar. Erste Auflage! - Im Jahre 1834 promovierte Wilhelm Thomé (1809 (10 ?)-1846) mit dieser Arbeit über die Verpflanzung der Hornhaut. Er experimentierte ebenfalls an Hunden und Kaninchen und konnte sich rühmen, daß die Hornhaut, in fünf von acht Versuchen einheilte, angeblich mit teilweisem Erhalt der Durchsichtigkeit. Thomés Methode bestand darin, mit dem Starmesser etwas vom Rande der Cornea entfernt einzugehen und sie dann mit der Schere auszuschneiden. Später benutze er dazu ein zweischneidiges Messer. Er gewann zunächst das Transplantat auf diese Weise und excidierte erst dann am Empfängerauge. Zur Befestigung verwendete er Ligaturen und verzichtete auf anschließenden Verschluß des Auges, da er sich so einen besseren Abfluß des Wundsekrets versprach." Giese - Angeregt durch Arbeiten von Stilling und Thomé führten nach 1840 Ärzte verschiedener Nationalitäten, zu denen Davis, Plouvier, Feldmann und Hauenstein gehörten unter Leitung Desmarres Tierversuche durch, deren Ergebnisse Desmarres 1843 der Académie Royale des Sciences vorlegte und in der er feststellte, daß die Übertragung von Hornhaut eines Tieres auf ein anderes gut möglich sei, daß sie auch anwachse, aber sich bis auf manchmal klarbleibende Randpartien stets eintrübe. Münchow - Wilhelm Thomé, am 22. Dez. 1809 geboren in Oberollendorf bei Bonn, studierte seit 1828 Medizin in Bonn und promovierte dort 1834, anschließend setzte er seine Studien in Berlin fort, kehrte 1836 als approbierter Arzt nach Bonn zurück und unternahm von dort aus Studienreisen nach Wien, Venedig, Neapel, Florenz, Rom und Paris. 1838 ließ er sich in Köln nieder und errichtete dort eine Augenheilanstalt, die er erfolgreich leitete. 1846 starb er an den Folgen eines Schlaganfalles. - Engelmann 576; SGC I; Callissen 33, p.21; Hirschberg 344; Münchow, Geschichte der Augenheilkunde p.691; Giese, Geschichte der Hornhauttransplantation, p.44 [Attributes: Hard Cover]
