      London, W.S. Orr & Smith, 1834-1849. 16 volumes. Royal-8vo. With 717 (25 doublepage) fine handcoloured plates of flowers, 6 plates (5 coloured) of garden designs and numerous woodcuts in the text. Contemporary green half calf, marbled sides, spines with 4 raised bands, gilt lines and lettering. Nice set of this famous and beautifully illustrated periodical. In the advertisement of the Xth. volume we read: "The character of the Embellishments of this work has at length been brought almost as near to perfection as possible to attain. It is indeed, suggested by some of our friends, that they are occasionally too beautiful; and that the plants they represent are not ordinarily so handsome as they are here depicted".//Sir Joseph Paxton (1803-1865) was head gardener to Duke of Devonshire at Chatworth, where for example he achieved the first blooming of the 'Victoria amazonica'. He designed the Crystal Palace and became one of the leading English botanists.//Nissen BBI, 2351; Great Flower Books p. 85.

        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]

        Bilder-Magazin fur Allgemeine Weltkunde oder Geograhisch-Ethnographische Bilder-Gallerie nebst einer Ausfurhlichen Beschreibung derselben, . . . (2 volumes/2 Bande)

      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.

        The Naturalist's Repository, or miscellany of exotic natural history exhibiting rare and beautiful specimens of foreign birds, insects, shells, quadrupeds, fishes and marine productions; more especially such new subjects as have not hitherto been figured, or correctly described; forming a compendium of the most interesting modern discoveries in zoology.

      London, printed for the author, and Simpkin & Marshall, 1834. 5 volumes. Royal-8vo (245 x 152mm). With 180 handcoloured engraved plates. Publisher's cloth. One of the most attractive, colourful natural history works of the period, describing many newly discovered exotic animals. The present copy is a title-edition of 1834, having the same plates and text as the first edition, with the only difference that a new title-page has been printed. The work was originally issued in monthly parts from 1823-7. The coloured plates are usually accompanied by one to three leaves of text. According to Buchannan 'Nature into Art', Donovan was particularly fond of using bright colours in his plates and the offered work is a very good example for this. 52 of the beautiful illustrations depict shells, 70 plates concern entomology and exotic butterflies figure extensively and 26 plates are devoted to birds. "It will be also seen from many of our pages that through the kindness of the late worthy president of the Royal Society, Sir Joseph Banks, the rich and truly scientific collection of that magnificent patron of sciences was ever open to us for the furtherance of our pursuits in Natural History; and of the object of the present work among others' (From the introduction). The work shows first depictions of butterflies and insects collected during the first Cook voyage such as plate 37 'Papilio Marica' of the second volume. Paper repair to title-pages, some traces of library stamps on verso of some plates not affecting the illustrations.//Provenance: Handwritten name of Kikumaro Okano on inside front-covers.//Nissen IVB, 259; Wood 323.

        Vendres from Vues des cotes de France dans l'ocean et dans la Mediterranee

      Paris, Panckcoucke 1834 - Ambroise-Louis Garneray (1783-1857) Plate from Vues des cotes de France dans l'ocean et dans la Mediterranee Paris: C.L.F. Panckcoucke, 1823-34 Aquatint plate, hand-colored by the artist 17” x 23 3/4”; 22” x 26” framed Ambroise-Louis Garneray was born February 1783. He received his first lessons in painting and drawing from his father, Jean-Francois, who was a pupil of Jacques-Louis David. The younger Garneray went to sea with the navy at the age of 13, and for nearly 18 years served on battle ships, slavers and whaling vessels on expeditions to the Caribbean and throughout the Pacific Ocean. Garneray finally returned to Paris in 1814 after spending eight years in England, where he had been detained after being captured at sea. He established himself as a marine painter upon his arrival, and studied engraving under Philibert Louis Debucourt. In 1815 Garneray was admitted to the Paris Salon, and exhibited his first painting “View of the Port of London” in 1816. He continued to exhibit, winning a gold medal in 1819, and later earned the patronage of Louis XVIII, who commissioned him to paint several scenes of naval battles. In 1833, Garneray was appointed director of the Rouen Museum, a post he resigned in 1837 to work on designs for the Sevres porcelain factory. While Garneray’s engravings of naval and whaling scenes are extremely popular, his greatest achievement is his series Vues des Cotes de France dans l’ocean et dans la Mediterranee. This series of views depicted the principal ports of France, Europe and the United States and was supplemented by the elegant prose descriptions of M.E. Jouy. The views pictured are of the towns of the French Riviera. Each print in this series exhibits endless attention to detail, incorporating architectural landmarks, ships, weather conditions, animals, and costumed figures in the midst of daily activities. Garneray has attempted to make the aquatint engravings resemble his original watercolor sketches by using very opaque hand-finishing, which sometimes almost totally obscures the engraved and color-printed base beneath, and by adding manuscript captions in pencil. Each print has been completely colored by Garneray himself.

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.

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.

        Entdeckung continuirlicher, durch Wimperhaare erzeugter Flimmerbewegungen, als eines allgemeinen Phänomens in den Klassen der Amphibien, Vögel und Säugethiere (pp.391-400).

      - Arch. Anat. Phys., 1834/5. - Berlin, G.Eichler, 1835, 8°, pp.391-480, 3 lith. Taf., orig. Broschur; unaufgeschnittenes Exemplar. First Report about the "Discovery of Ciliary Motion in Reptiles and Warm blooded Animals". William West - Further we find in this volume Purkyne's: "Der microtomische Quetscher, ein bei microscopischen Untersuchungen unentbehrliches Instrument" (pp.385-391,6 Abb.). - Bei Evertebraten und niederen Wirbeltieren war die Flimmerbewegung schon früher bekannt gewesen und vordem von einer Reihe von Forschern beschrieben worden. Aber Jan Evangelista Purkyne (1787-1869) Purkynë und Gabriel Gustav Valentin (1810-1883) waren die ersten, die diese Erscheinung bei höheren Tieren beobachteten. - Diese Entdeckung rief in der gelehrten Welt große Überraschung hervor. Das war der Anfang einer groß angelegten Versuchsreihe an vielen Organen und Systemen sowie an zahlreichen Tieren. Purkynë und Valentin stellten fest, daß Flimmerbewegung bei Wirbellosen und niederen Wirbeltieren im Hautsystem besteht, bei höheren Wirbeltieren sodann im Verdauungstrakt, in den Atemwegen und dem Geschlechtsapparat sowie schließlich, wie Purkynë nachträglich konstatierte, in den Höhlen des zentralen Nervensystems. Sie verfolgten dann individuelle Entwicklung, Wesen und Form der Flimmerbewegung, ihre Größe, Geschwindigkeit und Richtung, ferner, wie lange sie sich nach dem Tod des Lebewesens erhält und wie auf sie verschiedene Einflüsse wirken, wie physikalische (Erschütterungen, Licht, Wärme, Kälte, Elektrizität) oder chemische, angefangen von biologischen Flüssigkeiten wie Blut, Harn, Galle, Eiweiß und Milch, bis zu den üblichen Arzneien und Giften wie Belladonna, Morphin, Opium, Strychnin, Blausäure. - Ihre Forschungen zeigten, daß die Flimmerbewegung im Tierreich eine allgemeine Erscheinung ist und daß sie in den meisten vegetativen Systemen auftritt. Sie zeigt sich bereits in den Frühstadien der Entwicklung, ist weder vom Willen, noch vom Nervensystem, noch auch von der Muskeltätigkeit abhängig. Sie hängt weder von der Unversehrtheit des Gesamtorganismus ab - sie hält noch lange nach dem Tod an - noch von der Unversehrtheit des betreffenden Organs, denn sie überlebt auch an kleinen Gewebsfragmenten. Auf sie wirken nur lokale Einflüsse, d. h. sie ist von den örtlichen Verhältnissen abhängig, von der Unversehrtheit der Wimperhärchen selbst; sie ist der Ausdruck ihrer eigenen Vitalität. Aufgabe der Flimmerbewegung ist der Transport einer Flüssigkeit oder kleiner Partikel in einer bestimmten Richtung. - Die Feststellung, die Flimmerbewegung sei unabhängig vom Nervensystem, erregte gewisse Zweifel, z.B. bei J. Müller, der ansonsten diese Entdeckung hoch würdigte. Später zeigte sich aber, daß auch andere Formen der Bewegung unabhängig von Nerveneinflüssen existieren. Purkynës und Valentins Arbeit bleibt das klassische Werk über diese interessante physiologische Erscheinung, deren physikalisch-chemische Grundlage erst in letzter Zeit erhellt wird." V.Kruta, J.E.
