        THE LONDON ANGLER'S BOOK, OR WALTONIAN CHRONICLE. By John Baddeley.

      John Baddeley. London. - 1834 1st edition. Small 8vo (114 x 187mm). Pp[ii],vi,185,xi. Engraved frontispiece, two engraved plates of tackle, one text engraving. Contemporary grey-brown cloth, spine titled in gilt. Small chip from cloth on spine, creasing to several pages but a good-plus copy of a scarce book. A scarce guide to fishing the rivers and streams of London and the surrounding area. Full title:- "The London Angler's Book, or Waltonian Chronicle, containing much original information to anglers generally combined with numerous amusing songs and anecdotes of fish and fishing, never before published. Together with an entirely new description of the Thames, from London Bridge to Staines, the Lea from the Thames to Hertford, the Wandle, the Mole, the Wey, the Colne, the Brent, the Roding; and every river and stream within 20 miles of London, worth fishing in." John Rock Baddeley, born in Staffordshire in 1797, made his fortune after setting up in London as a die-sinker and engraver. As a keen angler he spent his spare time exploring the rivers and streams of the area and was the founder of the True Waltonian Society. The author describes the fish (together with a song about each species) and the fisheries of the region, mostly coarse fishing but with many good mentions of Thames trouting. A short section of the book is devoted to flies and flyfishing which the author describes as ".the best part of the sport." He places emphasis on the simplicity of flyfishing, rubbishing the complicated advice on fly choice given by other anglers and authors and stating it to be ".all quackery and nonsense. Throw a light line, keep out of sight as much as possible, and in any stream in England, at some part of the day, if the fish are inclined to rise at all, you may kill Dace, Chub, and Trout, as well as though you had all the tackle that was made to choose from."

        European Colonies, in Various Parts of the World,

      London: Richard Bentley,, 1834. viewed in their social, moral, and physical condition. 2 volumes, octavo (213 x 132 mm). Contemporary green calf, richly gilt spines with central floral motifs, dark red twin labels, concentric gilt and blind stamped ornamental panels on sides, gilt Greek-key roll tool on turn-ins, marbled edges and endpapers. Late 19th-century engraved rococo-style armorial bookplates of Henry James Wilkinson, with his inscription in volume I ("H. J. Wilkinson from his friend Chas. Lipscomb") and pencilled ownership inscriptions of Charles Henry Lipscomb; both men were clerics, Lipscomb in Norfolk and Wilkinson in Staffordshire, and had been at Oxford together; 20th-century bookplate of Peter and Margery Morris (Faskally, Perthshire). Extremities a little rubbed, touch of foxing in places. A very good set, with half-titles. First edition, well represented institutionally but commercially uncommon; a most attractively presented copy in a superior contemporary binding. John Howison (1797-1859) was a Scot who from 1818 to 1820 travelled in Quebec and Ontario, and whose Sketches of Canada (1821), published when he was still in his mid-twenties, "was an immediate success and is one of the best documentary sources for pioneer life in Canada" (ODNB). In 1822 he went to Bombay as an assistant surgeon with the East India Company and "was stationed in Poona in 1825, and belonged to the literary society there. Descriptions of the life of the foreign colony in Bombay and a journey through the Deccan with Major-General Sir Lionel Smith can be found in Howison's Foreign Scenes and Travelling Recreations (1825)" (ibid.). He also began contributing stories - largely "tales of terror" - to Blackwood's Magazine and has been described as "an important early contributor" (Anthony Jarrells in Romanticism and Blackwood's Magazine: 'An Unprecedented Phenomenon', 2013, p. 271). However, "he demonstrated that he was more than an author of light travel works and fiction with his unjustly neglected European Colonies … Viewed in their Social, Moral, and Physical Condition (1834). In this, his most ambitious work, Howison's analysis ranges over Africa, India, the Caribbean, and the Arctic" (ODNB). Volume I is given over to west and south Africa and India; volume II to a continuation of India, then the Arctic, West Indies, and British America. Howison is one of the most interesting British travel writers of the first half of the 19th century.

        PAXTON'S MAGAZINE OF BOTANY AND REGISTER OF FLOWERING PLANTS Volumes 1 - 15

      London: Orr and Smith, 1834. 1834-1848; vols. 1-15 (of eventually 16); 695 fine hand-coloured engraved and lithographed botanical plates after Frederick William Smith and Samuel Holden (some heightened with gum arabic, several double-page, tissue guards), 4 tinted lithographed ground plans, one uncoloured engraved plate, wood-engraved illustrations in the text, approximately 10 plates shaved, just touching imprint or image. Finely bound in contemporary green half morocco with attractive gilt decoration to the spine and red title labels. Bound up from parts resulting in volumes 11-14 being slightly taller with similar but variant spine decoration. All edges gilt; marbled end papers. Bindings in very good bright edition with slight wear only. Contents clean and tight, plates bright. A very good set. [Nissen BBI 2351; Great Flower Books, p.85; Stafleu TL2 7544] The Magazine of Botany was illustrated with fine botanical plates, of which Paxton notes in his introduction to volume 10 "the Embellishments of this work has been brought as near perfection as it is possible to attain. It is, indeed, suggested by some of our friends, that they are too beautiful; and that the plants they represent are not ordinarily so handsome as they are here depicted. Such a view, however, is a mistaken one: it arises from a rule which we adopt in the choice of subjects for our drawings, and which is, to have them prepared, whenever practicable, from specimens that are very favourably grown... on account of the stimulus it gives to those who see our plates, to grow their specimens to the like excellence". From 1826 to 1858 Paxton was chief gardener at the Duke of Devon's Chatsworth Estate, establishing it as "the most famous garden in England... [and in the Magazine] he described many of his plants and innovations at Chatsworth" (ODNB). Provenance: M.A. Boothe, nineteenth century ownership inscription in each volume.. First Edition. Half Leather. Very Good. Small 4to (17 x 23.5cm).

        Très Hauts et Très Puissans Moutards et Moutardes Légitimes

      Paris: Aubert, 1834. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Lithograph, 362 x 540 mm. Matted. A few pale stains, soft vertical crease in upper image. Published in L'Association Mensuelle, February 1834, Daumier's image is "viciously cruel, and full of hatred for the royal heirs and pretenders of the Bourbon line. Charles Philipon's caption is addressed to the most extreme royalists who fight and slaughter each other for the sake of these 'Augustes personnages' whom he simply considers brats and imbecile Bourbons. These are monster children with all the foul and evil characteristics they inherited. The catalogue of the Bibliothèque Nationale states that the persons in this print are the children of Louis-Philippe: Joinville, Aumale, Montpensier and Clementine. However, Provost believes they are: Otto I of Bavaria, future King of Greece; the Duke of Bordeaux (Duc de Chambord, then Henri V); Franz Joseph of Hapsburg, future Emperor of Austria; and Victoria, future Queen of England. The young prince, wearing a crown and holding a sword like a king, is commanding his army as he rides a wooden hobby horse. This pseudo-king is Henry V, the grandson of Charles X. His horse is branded with a coat of arms: an 'H' surmounted by a crown and fleur de lys, standing for the Duc de Bordeaux. Although destined to rule France, Henry V's chances to the throne were ruined by the rebellions in the Vendée of 1832. His mother, the Duchess de Berry, was imprisoned by Thiers while she was pregnant. Upon this news she was released and ridiculed, which terminated Henry's chances to the throne. As a result, the legitimists in France lost much of their political power" (Brandeis collection). Delteil 132.

        Le Magasin charivarique, muse comique, magasin de charges et de caricatures

      Paris, 1834. From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow. Two parts in three volumes, 4to (305 x 240 mm). The first volume including nine lithographs by Daumier (D. 219, 220, 223, 224, 225, 229, 231, 234 and 237). Red half roan, title label on cover, green marbled boards. - The second volume (issued in two parts, plates 1-19 and 20-37) containing 14 'chalk-plate' prints (seven in each part), (Bouvy 23-36). Original printed paper wrappers. Scattered foxing and minor creasing at the sheet edges, some wear and staining to the covers. Provenance: William M. Ivins, Jr. (1881-1961), curator Department of Prints, Metropolitan Museum of Art (pencil note on pastedown, signatures on covers of wrappers); purchased from Goodspeed's Book Shop, 1986. VERY RARE COMPLETE SET. "The only large cuts that Daumier made, aside from two or three odd ones like le Carnaval and le Compliment, that came out in the Charivari, are the series of 'chalk plate' caricatures that the Charivari published in the early 1830s, many of which subsequently appeared, printed carefully on one side only of good paper, in the Magasin Charivarique... In certain ways these two series exhibit him at the height of his prowess. For sheer brutal dominant power of presentation there are few things to be found in the history of the relief print finer than a number of the early chalk plates" (William Ivins, "Daumier," in: The Colophon, part V, 1931).

        1834 Apocalypse Explained Emanuel Swedenborg Mysticism Revelation + PROVENANCE

      London: J. S. Hodson. 1834. - 1834 Apocalypse Explained Emanuel Swedenborg Mysticism Revelation + PROVENANCE “This I can declare: things that are in heaven are more real than things that are in the world.” Emanuel Swedenborg Emanuel Swedenborg was an 18th-century Swedish philosopher and mystic known for his ideas and treatises on the afterlife. He claimed to have a spiritual awakening in which he received revelations by Jesus to reform Christianity. He claimed that with that interaction with Jesus, he was given the ability to freely visit both heaven and hell as well as talk with angels, spirits, and demons. In his book, ‘Arcana Coelestia’, Swedenborg interprets Biblical passages from the Old Testament books of Genesis and Exodus. He claims his understanding to be the ‘inner sense’ of these works of God. But because of the popularity of ‘Arcana Coelestia’ he furthered his biblical interpretation in ‘Apocalypse Revealed’, his interpretation of the Book of Revelation. He was convinced that the Bible describes man’s transformation from a materialistic being to a spiritual being – a spiritual regeneration. In ‘Apocalypse Revealed [or Explained]’, he controversially begins by saying that the creation was a myth and not actually an account of the creation of the world, but the creation of man’s rebirth. He claims further that because Jesus Christ freed himself from materialism that humankind can be glorified in a similar fashion.

        Lives of the Necromancers: Or, An Account of the Most Eminent Persons in Successive Ages, Who Have Claimed for Themselves, or To Whom had been Imputed by Others, the Exercise of Magical Power.

      Frederick J. Mason,, London: 1834 - Pagination: xx, 465, [1, errata]. Rebacked modern calf, decorative floral gilt design to spine, black title label, modern marbled boards, marbled edges, title page with a tiny dot of foxing at bottom, else text is clean and crisp, about fine copy. Lacks extra advertisement leaf at end, as do most copies. Included with book is original bookplate (freely inserted) of Robert Crewe-Milnes, 1st Marquess of Crewe, Lord Houghton and The Earl of Crewe, British LIberal politician, statesman and writer (1858-1945). It is apparent The Earl of Crewe was a collector of the occult, as in research we have found other books of the sort with his bookplate in them. The opening sections discuss the various forms of augury and of contact with supernatural beings, followed by examples of magic and witchcraft from the Bible and from the classical periods of Greece and Rome. There follow sections on the Middle East, the European Dark Ages, which continue down through the alchemist. Each section features biographies of prominent magicians of that space or time. The concluding chapter is a lengthy history of witchcraft trials and of modern magicians including Cornelius Agrippa, Paracelsus, Cardon, Nostradamus, Dr. Dee, and an account of witchcraft trials including sections on King James I's ideas on witchcraft, the Lancashire witches, Urbain Grandier, and the trials of witches in Sweden and New England. By William Godwin (1756-1836), the famous radical author, husband of the feminist Mary Wollstonecraft, father-in-law of Percy Bysshe Shelley, and father of the author of "Frankenstein," Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley.

        An Historical and Statistical Account of New South Wales..

      London, 1834. In good condition.. Two volumes, octavo, with a folding coloured map; in a good modern binding of half calf and marbled boards. First edition of a classic and influential study of the colony of New South Wales; there were several subsequent editions. The Westminster Review suggested that its title should read 'The History of Doctor Lang, to which is added the History of New South Wales'; however, it was among the most widely read and fully informed accounts of Australia.John Dunmore Lang (1799-1878) was, as D.W.A. Baker notes in the ADB, Presbyterian clergyman, politician, educationist, immigration organizer, historian, anthropologist, journalist, gaol-bird and, in his wife's words engraved on his statue in Sydney, 'Patriot and Statesman'. He arrived in the colony in 1823, possessed of enormous energy, and "pushed his way to power at once", as H.M. Green says, with "a great wave of popularity and dissension foaming at his bows and leaving a wide wake behind him". This is an attack on the emancipists, among others, by Wentworth's major rival, and is Lang's most important work. Although Lang shared with Wentworth the desire to encourage immigration and implement self-government, he in fact went further in wanting independence. Provenance: James Angas Johnson, with bookplates.

        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. Purkyn, pp.91-93

Tabelle, Leinenband unbeschnittenes, minimal fleckiges Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe. Carl Wigand Maximilian Jacobi (1775-1858) gehört zu den Pionieren der deutschen Psychiatrie. Schüler Hufelands u. Freund Goethes, versuchte er die Geisteskranken von dem Stigma des selbstverschuldeten Irreseins zu befreien, wie es noch von den christlich-philosophischen Ärzten seiner Zeit postuliert wurde. Seine Schöpfung, die Irren-Anstalt Siegburg "wurde die hohe Schule für die ganze Generation der damaligen Psychiater Deutschlands..."(Hirsch-H.) The asylum of Siegburg, the first who founded in Prussia and created by Jacobi under English influence, became the model for the German psychiatrists of the time. Jacobi, called the Esquirol of Germany, was a somatologist and proclaimed his respect for the brain by asserting that one needed no psychology to understand and treat mental diseases.Kirchhoff I, 83-94 Leibbrand-Walley, Der Wahnsinn, 496-97 Hirsch-H.

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.

        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".

        Le Magasin charivarique, muse comique, magasin de charges et de caricatures

      Paris: 1834. Two parts in three volumes, 4to (305 x 240 mm). The first volume including nine lithographs by Daumier (D. 219, 220, 223, 224, 225, 229, 231, 234 and 237). Red half roan, title label on cover, green marbled boards. - The second volume (issued in two parts, plates 1-19 and 20-37) containing 14 'chalk-plate' prints (seven in each part), (Bouvy 23-36). Original printed paper wrappers. Scattered foxing and minor creasing at the sheet edges, some wear and staining to the covers. Provenance: William M. Ivins, Jr. (1881-1961), curator Department of Prints, Metropolitan Museum of Art (pencil note on pastedown, signatures on covers of wrappers); purchased from Goodspeed's Book Shop, 1986. VERY RARE COMPLETE SET. "The only large cuts that Daumier made, aside from two or three odd ones like le Carnaval and le Compliment, that came out in the Charivari, are the series of 'chalk plate' caricatures that the Charivari published in the early 1830s, many of which subsequently appeared, printed carefully on one side only of good paper, in the Magasin Charivarique... In certain ways these two series exhibit him at the height of his prowess. For sheer brutal dominant power of presentation there are few things to be found in the history of the relief print finer than a number of the early chalk plates" (William Ivins, "Daumier," in: The Colophon, part V, 1931). From the Collection of Arthur & Charlotte Vershbow.

Story's Conflict of Laws, the first systematic treatise on the subject, is one of his greatest and most influential works. Warren says: "It is not too much to say that its publication constituted an epoch in the law; for it became at once the standard and almost the sole authority...[it] received the honor of being practically the first American law book to be cited as authority in English courts." Expanding on this latter point Marvin quotes "a late English writer" who says that "No work on international jurisprudence merited, nor received, greater praise from the jurists of Europe. It impressed English lawyers with the highest respect for [Story's] extensive learning.": Legal Bibliography 471. Warren, A History of the American Bar 545.

        The angler in Wales, or days and nights of sportsmen.

      1834 - Richard Bentley. 1834. 8vo. Sometime rebound in half brown morocco, gilt rules to sides, spines with gilt raised bands, gilt panels and lettering, marbled endpapers, marbled edges; pp.xvi + 336, vii + 348, engraved frontispieces, occasional text engravings; front hinge of vol I tender, vol II recently rejointed, spines a little sunned, frontispieces foxed, otherwise very clean internally, very good. Provenance front pastedowns of Henry Edmund Taylor of Whickham near Newcastle upon Tyne, a prodigious nineteenth century collector. First edition. Scarce. Thomas Medwin (1788-1869) was an English poet best known for his biographies of his cousin Shelley and his close friend Byron. Both poets make brief appearances in this book, which is a defence of the art of angling and an ode to the countryside, mainly in the form of a dialogue between two characters who represent two sides of the author's own personality. Walton is his model, but the Romantic philosophical tone is very much his own. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
