        ALS - 6 eigenhändige Briefe mit Unterschrift. Marburg 28.I.1834 bis 12.X.1836.

      . Marburg 28.I.1834 bis 12.X.1836, 13 Seiten gr.-4°; mit 4 gesiegelten Umschlägen, 2 Briefe mit Siegel(resten) und Adresse. Sehr gut erhalten.. Christian Heinrich Bünger (1782-1842), Chirurg und Anatom, Begründer der Marburger Anatomischen Sammlung, auch ein "geschickter und kühner Operateur" (Hirsch). - An seinen Schüler, den Anatomen und Chirurgen Benedict Stilling (1810-1879, hörte 1828-1831 bei Bünger) in Kassel, mit dem er sich über Fachfragen austauschte. - - 28.I.1834. Dank für Stillings "Schrift über die Gefäßdurchschlingung". - - "... Sollte Ihre Methode wie natürlich, auch keine so allgemeine Anwendung finden können, wie die Unterbindung, schon dadurch, daß sie mehr mechanisches Geschick von Seiten des Operateurs voraussetzt, so wird die Idee doch immer sehr gefallen ... und nie wieder ins Vergessen kommen ...Bei den Untersuchungen der Trombus Bildung welche ich an Thieren ... mit meinen Prosectoren fortsetze, bedienen wir uns auch bald Ihrer, bald anderer Methoden. - - Nicht umhin kann ich aber Sie mit einer neuen Verschließungs Art der Arterien bekannt zu machen, welche sehr leicht ausführbar, und mit welcher ich schon an einigen Schaafen geglückte Versuche gemacht ..." - Es folgt eine ausführliche, mit drei kleinen Zeichnungen illustrierte Beschreibung seiner neuen Methode unter Verwendung von "Gummi elasticum". Sektionen würden zeigen, ob das Material "verdaut wird, oder ob weitere interessante Erscheinungen wie bei nach außen vorgenommenen Transplantationen sich ergeben ..." - - 8.V.1834. "... Mit Vergnügen habe ich Ihre mir gnädigst mitgetheilten Ansichten über die Metamorphosen des Trombus welche sich in Folge Ihrer neuen Gefäß Schließung neben bei ergaben ... Es ist dies allerdings ein Gegenstand welcher noch rechtgenaue Aufmerksamkeit weil er über manches andere mit Aufklärung giebt, verdient. Mit Ihnen kann ich nur ganz einverstanden sein, dass nach den ersten Veränderungen welche der Trombus durch einen gewissen Verdauungs Proceß erfährt später auch wirklich Blut und Gefäßbildung auf eine kurtze Zeit während seines Blüthe Zustandes darinn anzunehmen und diese bei recht glücklichen Injectionen de vasa vasorum darinn zu entdecken sein möchten ..." Es folgen Beobachtungen, die er vor Jahren bei einer Sektion nach einem Fall von "Aneyrisma aortae" gemacht habe. - - 9.VIII.1834. "... Es thut mir sehr leid daß ich Ihnen auf Ihr dringendes Ansuchen: doch schnell die Resultate von den von mir vorgenommenen bekannten Untersuchungen einzuschicken, wegen einer drei wöchentlichen bedeutenden Krankheit ... nur kurz erwiedern kann: daß ich vor dem 20 Aug., an welchem Tage ich ... eine öffentliche Vorlesung in der naturforschenden Gesellschaft, wegen dem Geburtsfeste unsers Regenten, halten soll, an nichts weiter als an meine sich ungeheuer drängenden ... Geschäfte denken kann ..." - - 8.IX.1834. "... Sehr lieb würde es mir sein wenn ich Sie bei meiner Durchreise durch Cassel am nächsten Donnerstag Morgen ... auf ein Stündchen sprechen, Ihnen gewisse Präparate in natura zu eigener Prüfung vorzeigen ... könnte. - - Nur durch mündliche und gemeinschaftliche Untersuchung werden wir uns hinreichend darüber verständigen können ob schon für jetzt Gebrauch von dieser Sache zu Ihrem Zweck zu machen sein wird, oder nicht. - - Da mir von jetzt an die interimistische Direction der Thier Arzney Schule übertragen ist so werde ich nach meiner Reise weitere und genauere Versuche durch feine Injectionen anstellen ..." - - 20.XII.1834. "... Herzlichen Dank für Ihr mir gesendetes interessantes Buch und für die darinn mir erzeugte Ehre; wie auch für die freundschaftliche Aufnahme und Bewirthung meiner Frau mit mir in Ihrer Behausung beim Antritt unserer Reise nach Hamburg ..." Es folgt ein ausführlicher Bericht von seinem Besuch des Hamburger Spitals, wo er bei seinem "Landsmann Frike" (Johann Karl Fricke, 1790-1841) hospitiert habe. "... Das auffallendste ... ist mir gewesen, daß Frike seit mehreren Jahren gar keine Ligatur bei den häufig vorkommenden und bei Amputationen zu machenden Gefäß Verletzungen mehr vorgenommen, sondern nur unter allen Umständen die Torsion und zwar immer glücklich gemacht haben will ... So wie Fricke die Torsion mir ... an Leichen zeigte mit seiner Pinzette gemacht, konnte ich nicht anders als großes Zutraun dazu gewinnen ... Seine Pinzett scheint mir hierzu ganz zweckentsprechend und die sichere Art der Ausführung nur hiervon abzuhängen ..." - - Fricke hatte als erster in Deutschland die Torsion mit einer von ihm eigens entwickelten Pinzette durchgeführt und 1830 in seinem Artikel "Über die Torsion" (Rust Magazin, 32: pp. 468-475) beschrieben. - - 12.X.1836. Dank für die Vermittlung von Abgüssen eines "Orang utang Schädel" und "richtigen Menschenschädeln" aus Paris sowie mit der Bitte um die Weiterbehandlung einer "Stein Patientin", deren Fall er eingehend schildert. - - Mit einem von Stilling beschrifteten Umschlag "Correspondenz mit Hofrath Bünger zu Marburg".

        Chinese Village, Pokfulum. (Hongkong)

      (circa1868).. Original albumen photograph measures 19 x 26.9cm. Laid on thick paper, matted. Matt measures 38.1 x 46cm. "Floyd, William Pryor (1834 - c. 1900). Important and highly talented British photographer whose Hong Kong studio was, for a time, one of the most successful commercial operations of its kind in the Far East. Worked in Shanghai (1864) and Macau (Aomen) (1865 - 1866 or 1867) before settling in Hong Kong (1867 - 1874)" (History of Photography in China: 1861-1879. Western Photographers Terry Bennett. 2010) This original albumen print, entitled “Chinese Village, Pokfulam (Hongkong)” was purchased in Hong Kong about 25 years ago. It was attributed to William Pryor Floyd by the dealer who sold it at that time and this seems likely. We could find only one institution who holds a copy of this image. Of superior quality and in fine condition, it has historical as well as photographic interest, because one hundred and fifty years later, despite so much change all over Hong Kong as well as in its immediate area, this small settlement continues to exist to this day. The old houses shown in the photograph still stand, though for long engulfed by wooden huts and other, initially temporary, residential structures built for the most part by persons fleeing the Chinese mainland during the Japanese invasion and civil war between 1937-49. Despite the ever-present threat of clearance for development which hangs over all such squatter settlements, Pokfulam village has somehow survived, and there is now more interest in its preservation. A lively Pokfulam Village Cultural Landscape Group has existed for some years and has a firmly established presence on the Internet. Its website provides information on the village as it presently exists, and its own 'intangible cultural heritage" activities, including festivals. The historical section also provides some follow-up information about the old houses shown on this 1868 photograph - which features on its home page - as follows: "Interpretation from Historic Photo: From one historical picture named as “Chinese Village at Pok Fu Lam” taken in 1868, you can see 2 rows [?] of single storey houses with pitched tile roofs in the forest. According to the [number] of doors, it is believed that there were 17 families...." Pokfulam Village was also the subject of a paper written by Dr James Hayes and published in 1972 in the Journal of the Royal Asiatic Society HK Branch - "There is nothing attractive about the present village, which mostly consists of small single-storey stone or wooden structures erected in haphazard fashion round the single row of old village houses that constituted the original village. The village is listed in the Chinese district gazetteer of San On (1819 edition) and thus pre-dates the British occupation of Hong Kong in 1841. The Chan (?) clan of Pokfulam, which probably settled the area in the 18th century, is still there today. They are Puntis, from Po On district. The Chans owned most of the agricultural land in the area, and fished by line and stakenet from suitable points on the coast." .

Programmata Collecta. Fasciculi Tres. Lipsiae, prostat apud C.F.Koehler, 1851", and added it to the new Fasiculus II and III togehter with supplement sheets for the Index for the pre owner of "De pulsu, resorptione, auditu et Tactu" and created such a new title for sale. - The paper of the part of 1834 and 1851 is slightly different and there is also no new print listed in Wilhelm Engelmann's Bibliotheca Medico-Chirurgica et Anatomico-Physiologica, Supplement (1867), p.271 and this explains why this item is such extremely rare. Engelmann erroneously names as publisher, but may then as source "(Leipzig, Ad. Winter)". But Callisen reports correct in volume 20, p.231 "De pulsu (p.1), resorbtione (p.13), auditu (p.25) et tactu (p.44-175). Annotationes anat. et physilogicae. Lips. prostat. ap. C.F.Köhler. 1834. ... Rec. Schmidt Jahrb. d.Med. Bd.4. 1834. Decbr. art.145. S.343.44 v. E.H.Weber; ..." - "A legendary rarity that has been unfindable for many decades -- no doubt because just about nobody but the egregiously eccentric G. H. Fechner paid any attention to it. Fechner, of course, named "Weber's law" after Ernst Heinrich, and gave the name "psychophysics" to the field. Ernst Heinrich Weber (1795-1878)"introduced new methods of measuring sensitivity, establishing perception as an experimental rather than an observational discipline. Working initially with the discrimination of lifted weights, Weber demonstrated that the smallest appreciable difference was a constant fraction of their actual weights. . (He went on to propose) a general law of discrimination that applied to all modalities but with fractions specific to the judgments involved. He introduced the use of calipers to measure two-point thresholds on the skin surface and found that sensitivity varied enormously, with greatest sensitivity around the lips and least on the trunk. The magnitude of the thresholds depended on the areas of the skin stimulated, which led Weber to introduce the concept of sensory circles -- areas on the skin surface that can result in the stimulation of a single peripheral nerve. His work represents a distinct shift in the psychology of perception from philosophy towards physiology, from speculation to experimentation, and from qualitative to quantitative approaches" Nicholas J. Wade, Perception and Illusion, pp.137-138" c.f.

        THE ROUND TOWERS OF IRELAND; Or, The Mysteries of Freemasonry, Of Sabaism, and of Budhism, For the First Time Unveiled. "Prize Essay" of the Royal Irish Academy, Enlarged, and Embellished with Numerous Illustrations

      London: Whittaker and Co., Ave-Maria Lane, and J. Cummings, Dublin, 1834.. First Edition, First Printing. Leather Bound. Very Good. First edition. Octavo, bound in recent full marbled calf, the spine ruled in gilt with decorative fleurons in compartments, green leather label titled in gilt. 524 pp. Vignette engraving on title page, numerous engravings on plates and in the text, many full page. Lacks errata and advert leaves at rear, text complete. Light fraying to fore-edge of title leaf, a lovely copy in a beautiful modern binding executed by Sean Richards at the Byzantium Bindery. ¶ First book edition of O'Brien's essay proposing that the round towers of Ireland were created by a pre-Christian phallic cult among the Tuatha Dé Danann who he connected to the daughters of Danaus. His theory when first published caused a lot of controversy at the time, as well as sparking much criticism. O'Brien's Preface, extolling the virtues of Freemasonry, caused such offense that some copies of the work were mutilated by having it torn out. The book was re-issued in 1898 as 'The Round Towers of Ireland or the History of the Tuath De Dannan', and later as 'Atlantis in Ireland' (1976) and 'The Round Towers of Atlantis' (2002).

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. ("JM Mauch").

      Berlin, 4. März 1834.. 1½ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Architekten Gottfried Semper (1803-1879): "Vor Allem muß ich die Verzögerung dieses Briefes dadurch entschuldigen, daß ich ganz ungewöhnlicher Weise die beiden Beilagen verkramt hatte, ohne welche mein Schreiben Ihnen nichts genü[t]zt hätte. Aus demselben ersehen Sie nun, wie ich Ihren Auftrag besorgt habe, und wünsche nur daß die Abgüsse unbeschädigt Ihnen zukommen mögen. Für die angenehme Bekanntschaft mit Herrn Stammann danke ich Ihnen, leider war seine Zeit so sehr in Anspruch genommen, daß ich ihm nur einen Theil des Gewerbe Instituts zeigen konnte. Das Projekt zu den Anlagen auf der Akropolis ist fertig, ich habe es aber noch nicht gesehen, weil es zuerst bei Hof aufwartet [...]". - Johann Matthäus Mauch war unter Karl Friedrich Schinkel als Conducteur beim Bau des neuen Berliner Schauspielhauses beschäftigt gewesen und war von diesem anschließend dem Vorstand des neugegründeten königlichen Gewerbe-Institutes, P. C. W. Beuth, empfohlen worden. "Als gewandter Zeichner wurde er zu verschiedenen durch das preußische Ministerium veranlaßten Publicationen beigezogen, so namentlich zu dem von der technischen Deputation der Gewerbe herausgegebenen Prachtwerke: Vorbilder für Fabrikanten und Handwerker' (1821-1830), für welches er viele Zeichnungen lieferte und einen Theil davon selbst stach und lithographirte [...] Von einer längeren Studienreise nach Italien im Jahre 1830, wo er viel mit Eckermann und dem jungen Goethe [d. i. August von Goethe, der während jener Reise verstarb] zusammen war, brachte er allerlei Früchte fleißiger Studien mit, die er in der Folge als Schriftsteller und Lehrer zu verwerthen wußte" (ADB XX, 685). 1839 folgte er einem Ruf an die königliche Gewerbeschule in Stuttgart, wo er als Professor für monumentale Baukunst und deren Geschichte sowie für Ornamentzeichnen und Modellieren tätig war. - Mit stärkeren Faltspuren und etwas knittrig; papierbedingt etwas gebräunt; das Respektblatt mit Siegelrest und kleinen von anderer Hand stammenden Vermerken.

Bound in fine modern leather. Gilt lettering on spines. Fine bindings and covers. Clean, unmarked page with tanning. Abbey, Travel 11; Borba de Moraes, 2:937; Conrad, p 33; Hill 1842; Renard 1679; Rosove 344.A1; Sabin 102429; Spence 1245 Capt. Henry Foster was a British naval officer, scientist and a Fellow of the Royal Society, who took part in expeditions to both the Arctic and Antarctic, and made various notable scientific observations. From 1828 to 1831, he was commander of HMS Chanticleer and led the British Naval Expedition to the South Atlantic, surveying the South Shetland Islands and notably Deception Island off the Antarctic Peninsula. Aside from surveying coasts and ocean currents, the main purpose of the expedition was to determine the variation in gravitational attraction by means of a Kater invariable pendulum to measure observations, together with a more accurate determination of longitude. Many South American ports were visited and the area from Cape Horn south to the South Shetlands hydrographically surveyed. One particularly interesting plate of Deception Island shows the thermal springs at Pendulum Cove. There are numerous geological and natural history observations including penguins and seals. In the three year voyage, no loss of life was recorded through accident or sickness. Sadly, Capt. Foster drowned in the Chagres River in Panama in 1831, attempting to complete his observations on the river. His research was published, posthumously, in 1834, along with the private journal of W.H.B. Webster, Surgeon of the Sloop by Webster himself, and is an important account of a South Atlantic and Antarctic voyage in the early Nineteenth Century. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Pesth: Conrad Adolf Hartleben, 1834. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Good. Book. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. 1834 and 1835, 2 volumes. 576 numbered columns of text in each volume, with each text page divided into two columns. With 72 steel engraved plates, most with two, some with three, images of scenery, landmarks, cities and countryside from around the world. Bilder-Magazin was issued in 36 installments in each of the two years, and each issue was accompanied by a steel engraving, although in the collected version of these bindings a few engravings are out of sequence (yet present). Subject of plates too numerous to mention, but include some animal and action depictions -- these are not, in other words, simply pretty panoramas or pictures of famous buildings. Locations depicted run from all the major capitals of the world of the day to then exotic or surprising destinations such as Rio de Janeiro, and includes places such as New Haven, CT, New York City, to Mexico, India, China, etc. Articles are about these places, their history, people, customs, flora and fauna, etc. -- it is early version of our travel magazine, in other words, and thus full of lots of observations that might enrich a contemporary history of any of these locations. There is cracking of the inner spine in volume 1, but volume holding well nonetheless. Volume 2 has somewhat heavy foxing in margins of many plates. Volume 1 has some foxing as well, but the quotient of clean pages and plates is substantially greater. Text pages of both volumes have toning, but even when there is soilage, it is never disconcerting or interfering with legibility. Spine labels with minor chips. The rare set is in good condition overall.
