        The Practice Of Courts-Martial , and other Military Courts

      Calcutta: Thacker. Very Good- with no dust jacket. 1834. 1st Ed 1st Pr. Hardcover. Respined, edgewear, tone, os. Solid copy. 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]

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." .

Weber editorum, 1 plate. - - Still in the year 1851 (the first fasciculus) "De pulso, resorptione, auditu et tactu" (1834) wasn't sold out, so the publisher Köhler printed to promote the sales of this title a new title leave "Annotationes Anatomicae et Physiologicae. 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).

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.

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]
