      London: William Pickering, 1836; 1835-36. n. This is an attractively bound set of the four-volume Pickering edition of Gray's poems and letters, the latter including many items appearing in print for the first time. Best known for "Elegy written in a Country Churchyard," Thomas Gray (1716-71) was primarily a scholar, a professor of Modern History and Languages at Cambridge, and never became a professional or even a dedicated poet. Still, he was offered the laureateship in 1757, upon the death of Colley Cibber (he refused the honor). Gray had begun to write poetry as early as 1742, but it was not until 15 years later, after the publication of his "Poems," that he had become generally recognized as the foremost poet of the day. In his highly polished verse, one can easily trace the decay of Neoclassical and the development of Romantic strains in English poetry. Among other major works, Day calls his "Progress of Poesy" "probably the best true Pindaric ode in English," and another similar ode, "The Bard," "probably the best 18th century attempt at poetic sublimity." Although some of Gray's letters appeared in 1778 in an edition of his work put out by William Mason, the vast majority of the more than 350 epistolary items contained in these volumes are published for the first time. Volume I here is part of the well-known "Aldine Poet" series issued by Pickering, a publishing project covering more than 20 years and involving the production of 53 volumes (not counting reprints). Each work was carefully edited by one of a group of reputable scholars that included Sir Nicholas Harris Nicolas, Alexander Dyce, and John Mitford, the last of whom edited these volumes, which include his long biography of our poet and equally long "Essay on the Poetry of Gray." There was a fifth volume containing Gray's correspondence with the Rev. Norton Nicholls published by Pickering seven years after our set, in 1843, not present here.. 175 x 108 mm. (6 7/8 x 4 1/4"). Four volumes (the poems in the first volume, the letters in volumes II-IV). Edited by John Mitford. Attractive late 19th century chestnut brown half morocco over marbled boards, upper covers with a gilt falcon stamped on the leather, raised bands, spines gilt in compartments with Arts and Crafts-style quatrefoil centerpiece surrounded by gilt dots, spade-shaped leaves at corners, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt. With frontispiece portrait in volume I. Keynes, p. 38 (for first volume). A hint of rubbing to joints and extremities, very faint freckled foxing affecting about one leaf in four, but still quite a pleasing set, the bindings bright and with no significant wear, and the text very smooth and clean, showing few signs of use.This is an attractively bound set of the four-volume Pickering edition of Gray's poems and letters, the latter including many items appearing in print for the first time.

        The Main Foundations of Mineralogy].

      Gretch Skt. Peterburg 1835 - Octavo (23x 14,5cm). XX pp., including half title and title, 488, [2]pp., with a folding table and 5 folding engraved plates; occasional very light spotting. Contemporary dark green morocco, boards with all-over blind-tooling and bordered with gilt fillets with ornate cornerpieces, spine elaborately gilt in compartments, titled in gilt with raised bands, ornate dentelles, blue endpapers, all edges gilt; very slightly rubbed. A scarce Russian mineralogical work - in a superb binding typical of noble Russian provenance and from the library of Boris Berezovsky. The work, detailed and well structured, focuses on the chemical composition of minerals, their geometry and physical properties. The text is accompanied by engraved folding plates depicting different crystalline structures and various scientific instruments. It was compiled by the German-Russian engineer Anton Shturm and is largely a translation of Ernst Friedrich Glocker's "Handbuch der Mineralogie" (Nürnberg, 1829), though Shturm added many comments of his own. The publication was funded by the St. Petersburg Mineralogical Society. It is much probably the first edition, but, because of rarity, we couldn't find much information on the work and its author. It is not included in the extensive Sinkankas collection. Worldcat locates 8 copies in Northern America, to which KVK adds one in the National Library of Finland.

        Homeopathic Remedies

      Breslau, Lower Silesia, Germany [now Wroclaw, Poland], circa 1835-1870. Manuscript journal of a apothecary and physician Carl Daniel Schwila of Breslau, containing numerous medicinal recipes, others for household use including a mouse poison, as well as very detailed notes from lectures and references to the works of notable physicians from Germany, France and England. Text is in German. 8vo. 357 in manuscript, plus 3 additional leafs placed within, penned in three distinct hands. First leaf bears the blind stamp of "Apotheke in Kösel - R. Schliwa". An abundant and fascinating journal of pharmaceutical interest. Contained in an archival clam shell box for extra protection. An extensive journal of Victorian era medical formulae compiled and utilized by an apothecary and physician, over some twenty-five years, its entries feature numerous recipes for treatment, in the form of ingestible liquid prescriptions, tinctures, syrups, tonics, teas, compounds, pills, and possibly plasters. With at least three contributors, Dr. Schwila and his partners or protégés (possibly family), the volume was likely the cornerstone reference work of a family business in Kosel. [Kosel, known historically as Koslev, is a municipality in the district of Rendsburg-Eckernförde, in Schleswig-Holstein, Germany.] This volume is a fine elucidation of pharmaceutical techniques, discoveries, and evolving theories in medicine during mid-nineteenth century, frequently drawing on notable physicians and surgeons, apothecaries, leading medical educators, and their revolutionary works. In an ongoing pursuit to improve remedies and medical procedures, Schwila evidently kept abreast of the most recent findings and applications across Western Europe, he also performed his own experiments. One of the headings reads, "Neues verfahren zu franzosen Gieje... zu vertificionen" [A new procedure from the French Giege... verified]. One the sixth page we find reference to renowned French pharmacist Mr. Boutigny d'Evreux who in 1847 invented a ferruginous anti-asthenic chocolate which was recommended to convalescents who would benefit from weight gain, to children's whose growth had been affected by illness, and also to people with pulmonary phthisis (tuberculosis). An eight-page section is attributed to "Runge" at its conclusion, quite likely referring to German chemist Friedlieb Ferdinand Runge (1795-1867) who identified the mydriatic effects of the belladonna (deadly nightshade) extract, and who identified caffeine in the coffee plant. Other contemporaries in his field, mentioned here - homeopath Dr. George von Schmidt (1820-1882) who published a treatise on cholera titled "Das Choleragift" in 1867, apothecary Keller, apothecary Koldewey ein Isselburg, Dr. Vogel, Dr. Wittke zu Rummelsburg, Herr A. Lepowitz. English surgeon Thomas Turner (1793-1873), known primarily for his involvement in developing medical education outside its then traditional base of London, is also mentioned with the date of 1826, possibly in relation to his work as surgeon to the Deaf and Dumb Institution. The recipes are equally fascinating, with innumerable natural remedy treatments for human ailments, comprised mainly of plant extracts, herbs and minerals. Some ingredients include lavendel (lavender), cinamon, caryophil (a crystallized substance derived from clove oil), myrrh, coffein (caffeine), cocoa, vanilla, camphoret (camphor), arrow root, the melissa plant, resin burgund, colophony distilled from the oil of pine trees, alizarin (a red pigment present in madder root, used in dyeing), ammonia, magnesium, sulphur, arsenic, chronium, and more. [Historically, myrrh was often combined with opium to make a sedative, together in a concoction with juniper extract and an Asian ingredient. Myrrh was the most popular pain reliever before the discovery of opium and includes at least two compounds with an affinity for delta opiate receptors. It was traditionally consumed in wine.] Of particular interest for the period, two unique remedies for cholera are included, first a liquid medicine made of plant extracts, and second, a tincture evidently created by homeopath Dr. George von Schmidt (1820-1882) author of "Das Choleragift" published in 1867. [The study of cholera by John Snow between 1849 and 1854 led to significant advances in the field of epidemiology. He was the first to identify the importance of contaminated water as its cause.] We also find a recipe called "Coccinella" - a mixture made with cochineal insects, which in 1847 was described as "a medicine as yet very little known" in the volume of "Manual of Homeopathic Medicine," and purported to relieve of headaches, tooth aches, swelling of gums, and redness of cheeks. Other prescription recipes include "Hydragogue" (a purgative), "Agua Carmelitana" to reduce anxiety, "Cera nigra" (black wax), and a lichen chocolate called "Chocolata Lichenis Islandici" (a recipe for a paste which is also found in the pharmacological treatise 'Pharmacopoea universalis' and which was used for lung diseases). One of the recipes for pills makes references to an English man named Winderlich and a German physician Guttman. Examples of mixtures for household and personal use include a fragrant liqueur, eau de cologne, mouse poison, and so forth. The early 19th century was a turning point in the knowledge and use of medicinal plants. Marking the beginning of scientific pharmacy alkaloids were discovered and isolated from poppy (1806), ipecacuanha (1817), strychnos (1817), quinine (1820), pomegranate (1878), and other plants, followed by the isolation of glycosides. With the upgrading of the chemical methods, other active substances from medicinal plants were also discovered such as tannins, saponosides, etheric oils, vitamins, hormones, and so forth. By the mid-19th century the majority of medicinal treatments took the form of produced powders, tonics, teas, poultices, syrups, and washes made primarily from plant extracts. Common beliefs in this period maintained that removing symptoms would remove the disease, and that the body needed to be "cleansed" for certain treatments, thus by inducing vomiting, practicing bloodletting, and so forth. Historically, an apothecary was a medical professional who formulated and dispensed materia medica to physicians, surgeons and patients. Many recipes included herbs, minerals, and pieces of animals (meats, fats, skins) that were ingested, rubbed on the body, or used as aromatherapy. In addition to pharmacy responsibilities, the apothecary offered general medical advice and a range of services that are now performed solely by other specialist practitioners, such as surgery and midwifery. Apothecaries often operated through a retail shop which, in addition to ingredients for medicines, sold tobacco and patent medicines. By the 18th century, the medicinal properties of opium and laudanum were well known. Several physicians, including John Jones, John Brown, and George Young, the latter of whom published a comprehensive medical text entitled Treatise on Opium extolled the virtues of laudanum and recommended the drug for practically every ailment. "Opium, and after 1820, morphine, was mixed with everything imaginable: mercury, hashish, cayenne pepper, ether, chloroform, belladonna, whiskey, wine and brandy." By the 19th century, laudanum (a tincture of opium) was used in many patent medicines to relieve pain, induce sleep, and relieve irritation. Opium derivatives were among the most effective of the limited available treatments, and as such was widely prescribed for anything from the common cold to meningitis to cardiac disease, in both adults and children. Laudanum was used in home remedies and prescriptions, as well as a single medication. It was used during the yellow fever epidemic. Toward the middle 20th century, the use of opiates was generally limited to the treatment of pain, and opium was no longer a medically accepted "cure-all". Breslau [now Wroclaw], a city on the Oder River, was formerly in Lower Silesia, Germany. Since the siege of 1945 it falls within the borders of western Poland.

        Manuscript Mycology Field Notes Made by an Unidentified Mycologist / Botanist, Illustrating Various Medicinal, Edible, and Toxic Mushroom, in the form of Pencil Drawings. With Scientific Annotations, Classification References and Occasionally Dated.

      Switzerland, Germany, circa 1835. Manuscript mycology field notes in the form of pencil drawings with scientific annotations, classification references, and occasionally with the month in which a living specimen was either collected or observed in its habitat, made by an unidentified mycologist / botanist, and illustrating various species of fungi - edible, medicinal, and toxic. Comprising some 240 drawings on individual trimmed leafs, each mounted thematically with others of its type, with brass pins to the inside of folio double leafs. Text is in German, with some plant names also in Latin. The lot housed in the author's original string-tied portfolio boards, heavy green cardstock with manuscript inscription to front. Very good condition. This is a most uncommon manuscript work, profusely illustrated with pencil drawings, encyclopaedic in its scope, devoted strictly to the study and classification of mushrooms, and dating to formative era medicinal mycology. Numerous specimens shown were, and still are, popular and beneficial in homeopathic treatments. The present work is contemporary to notable pioneer mycologists such as Elias Magnus Fries, Christian Hendrik Persoon, Anton de Bary, and Lewis David von Schweinitz, though its author is unknown. The notes suggest that the writer observed living fungi specimens, between the months of May and October 1830, in Switzerland, Germany, and possibly London, drawing them on the spot, and subsequently identifying and classifying them according to the works of eighteenth century botanists. Specific regions identified include Münsterlingen and Scherzingen in Switzerland, as well as St. Katharine, which may be the ancient "Royal Peculiar" jurisdiction by the Tower of London which became a civil parish until 1895. In the nineteenth century, St. Katharine's by the Tower grew to be a village, flanking the banks of the River Thames. Aiding to date the work, one of the drawings is dated 2 June 1835. The drawing of honey fungus is annotated "Agaricus melleus" as it was then classified in the Agaricus genus, and later changed to the Armillaria genus in 1871. In addition, a single leaf found at the front of the volume is watermarked with a cameo and the name of Leopold Grosherzog von Baden, who in 1830 became the Grand Duke of Baden, the papermaker's name partially seen, André B.C. von Ac... Finally, the large folded leafs to which the drawings are mounted, are forged Whatman paper, watermarked "J.B. Whatman" with the crossed mid-section to the 'W' and the letter 'B' being clear revelations of forgery. [In the early nineteenth century, Whatman watermarks were commonly forged in France, Germany and Austria, as unscrupulous papermakers sought to gain from the name and reputation of Whatman.] The manuscript notes make frequent reference to "Schaeff." referring to Jacob Christian Schaeffer (1718-1790) who was an authoritative eighteenth century mycologist in Germany..

        Andrew Jackson Dockets a Letter on Redecorating the Hermitage, Refusing to Apologize to the French, and Bringing Home Indemnification Money Due from France to America

      1835 - Autograph Endorsement Signed with Initials, ca. June 1835. On HENRY TOLAND, Autograph Letter Signed, to Andrew Jackson, May 29, 1835. 4 pp., 7 3/4 x 10 in. "where no apology is due, you are the very last man on earth to make one. In the present state of Exchange in this Country, I am sure that 2 to 4 % might be made out of the money instead of paying one half per Cent to Rothschilds to bring it here" (Toland to Jackson) Complete Transcript[Jackson's Endorsement:]Mr Toland, inclosing bill & recpt for the paper hanging Hermitage House, his note to Doctor Physic, and views as to bringing home the French debt. A. J.[Letter:] Philada May 29 1835General Andrew JacksonDear sir on my return I wrote a note to Dr Physick informing him that Mrs Jackson [Sarah Yorke Jackson, the President's daughter-in-law] had got safe to Washington, the health of the children, and Your Joint kind messages to him. This produced a regular visit from the Doctor to myself next day, and really he appears to take as much interest in the little Rachael, as if she was his Grand daughter. He also made the most affectionate inquiries after Mrs Jackson and yourself, and I begged him to pay you a visit for a few days, assuring him how happy you would be to see him. He said he knew of nothing that would afford him so much pleasure, but that with all his efforts he could not get rid of business. That he had a good deal of trouble to get into it when he was a young man, and now that that he was old, he could not with all his efforts, shake it off. Since my return, I called on Mr Golder, and got a Copy of his bill for paper. I paid him the amount, taking a receipt to correct any errors if their be any. The receipt is on the back of the bill, and I have taken a duplicate in my book. We have at length the news of the passage of the bill by the French chambers which is very well, but where no apology is due, you are the very last man on earth to make one. I hope however, that every thing will be arranged as you may think proper, and when it is done, you will remember our friend Major Lewis. In the present state of Exchange in this Country, I am sure that 2 to 4 % might be made out of the money instead of paying one half per Cent to Rothschilds to bring it here I am preparing all these calculations, and in the mean time it would be well to prevent any arrangement, until the most profitable mode is ascertained. If one of our own Citizens can be benefitted by this operation, which must be done by some one, it were surely better to give that benefit to one of them, than to an enormously rich man, and a foreigner. I shall send the 6t tons of coal at at a very early day. Please present my most respectful Compliments to Mrs Jackson, Mrs Donaldson and Col Earle, and believe me most affectionately and respectfully Your friend Henry TolandP.S. I have ascertained that the B[ank of the]. U. States have transferred all their money from France to England, and are making a profit by drawing on England for their funds.Historical BackgroundHenry Toland writes President Jackson that Dr. Philip Syng Physick (1768-1837) had inquired about Jackson and his family. A graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, Physick pioneered several new surgical techniques, earning him the title, "Father of American Surgery." When Jackson consulted Physick about his lung hemorrhages, Physick told the President to stop smoking. He had also recently treated President Jackson's young granddaughter Rachel Jackson (1832-1923), the daughter of his adopted son Andrew Jackson Jr. and Sarah Yorke Jackson.The letter also details some business related to decorating at the Hermitage, Jackson's home near Nashville, Tennessee. A chimney fire in the fall of 1834 causes serious damage to the house, and Jackson rebuilt the mansion over the next two years. Robert Golder, a dealer in Philadelphia, provided scenic wallpaper for the Hermitage to replace that damaged by the fire. T. (See website for full description)

        Veduta del prospetto principale della Colonna Trajana [View of the Front of Trajan's Column]

      [Rome, 1774-1779] (Paris c. 1835 Impression) - Etching Overall 2910 x 465 mm One of Piranesi's most impressive and accomplished etchings. A magnificent, almost three metre high, depiction of Trajan's column in Rome using six plates printed over five pages. Piranesi's spectacular vision of the monument illustrates the column's narrative spiral frieze, featuring sculpted relief scenes of the Roman emperor Trajan's epic battles against the Dacians. The etching includes the original bronze statue of Trajan, which was later replaced with a figure of Saint Peter in 1587, and still stands today. Descriptions of the many reliefs run the entire length of the print on the left and right sides. Plate three from 'Trofeo o sia Magnifica Colanna Coclide di marmo composta di grossi macigni ove si veggono scolpite le due guerre daciche fatte, da Trajano inalzata nel mezzo del Gran Foro eretto al medesimo imperadore per ordine del senato e popolo romano doppo i suoi trionfi' (The Trophy or Magnificent Spiral Column of marble composed of large drums on which are carved the two Dacian Wars of Trajan, raised in the middle of the large Forum, erected in honor of the same Emperor on the order of the Senate and People of Rome after his Triumph) John Wilton-Ely describes the 'Trofeo o sia Magnifica Colanna Coclide.' as a composite publication, which meticulously records the three monumental relief columns in Rome - those of Trajan, of Marcus Aurelius (the Antonine Column) and of Antonius and Faustina - consisting of three groups of plates executed between 1774 and 1779 and eventually combined. It belongs to the last phase of Piranesi's career, when a number of works, initiated earlier, were brought to conclusion with considerable studio help. Besides other such assistants as Vincenzo Dolcibene, Francesco Piranesi had now begun to play an important role in the business. Dolcibene and the younger Piranesi were probably involved in most if not all of the plates concerned. Apart from a certain mechanical character in these illustrations, attributable to such studio assistance, the somewhat frozen expression found in these plates shows the growing influence of the aesthetic ideals of Neo-classicism. Giovanni Battista (also Giambattista) Piranesi (1720 â€" 1778) was an Italian artist famous for his etchings of Rome and of fictitious and atmospheric "prisons" (the Carceri d'Invenzione). He was a major Italian printmaker, architect and antiquarian. The son of a Venetian master builder, he studied architecture and stage design, through which he became familiar with Illusionism. During the 1740's, when Rome was emerging as the centre of Neoclassicism, Piranesi began his lifelong obsession with the city's architecture. He was taught to etch by Giuseppe Vasi and this became the medium for which he was best known.

      - Printed broadside on pale blue paper, folio sheet folded to 8" x 10", signed in ink by Hamilton. The last page is addressed in manuscript to Hamilton Fish of New York, with postmark and postage stamp. Light edge wear, Very Good. Written at the bottom of the address page [bit of tearing]: "The attorney or Agent of Mr. Hamilton is requested to inform Lewis Cruger who are now the Surviving Representatives of the late Col. Nicholas Fish." Hamilton evidently had a number of clients for his mission to secure their revolutionary claims; thus this printed Letter. His Letter explains the necessary procedures for them to follow. James Hamilton had an unusually interesting career. Governor of South Carolina during the Nullification Crisis, he sought to put into practice Calhoun's Doctrine of Interposition and State Sovereignty. Earlier, as "intendant" of Charleston, he had put down the Denmark Vesey Rebellion. An enthusiast for Texian independence, he was offered command of its army in 1835, and secured its recognition by France and the Netherlands. In 1855 he received a large land grant in Texas in recognition of his services. In 1857, only a few weeks after writing this Circular, Hamilton was a passenger on the steamship Opelousas, traveling from New Orleans to Galveston. There was a collision in the Gulf of Mexico. "Hamilton gave his life preserver to a woman for her child. His right arm was injured and he clung for a little while to a hatch cover with his left hand, then slipped off into the water and disappeared from view" [DAB]. Louis Wigfall eulogized him: "Scrupulously careful of the manner of his life, he was daringly indifferent as to the moment of his death. Daringly and generously indifferent-- 'Save yourself and the child,' he exclaimed, and submitted himself to the care of Him in whose hands are the winds and the waves." [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Modèle de la Scie a Molette de MM. (Alexander) Thomson et Charriere.

      Paris, Chez CXharrière, Fabricant d'Instruments et Chez J.B. Baillière Libr., 1835, 8, 14 pp., 1 gefalt. lith Tafel mit 16 Figs., feiner Halbledereinband etwas fleckig. A very rare booklet by Charrière about his improved rowel saw combined with a trepan!First Print - A very rare illustrated publication about a very important and technical neurosurgical saw invented by Charrière and Thompson in 1835 and here described in details. Furthermore, this booklet is one of Charrière's first publications (the fourth according to the bio-bibliography on Frédéric Charrière by Jimmy Drulhon)."In 1816, at the age of 13, Charrière arrived in Paris as an apprentice cutler. Born on 19 March 1803 at Cerniat en Gruyere, in the Swiss canton of Fribourg, where his uncle practiced the same trade, he was raised by his grandfather because his parents had moved to Paris, where his father was employed as a bank clerk. In 1820, after the death of his master, the young Swiss cutler took over the workshop, then situated in the courtyard of St.-Jean-de-Latran on the left bank of the Seine (gone today, as a consequence of urban development). In 1826, Charrière married Madeleine Elisa Berrurier, the seventeen-year-old daughter of a butcher. According to the Notice biographique of Dr. Achille Chéreau (1817-1885), the real commencement of Charrière's career dates from his introduction to Guillaume Dupuytren (1777-1839), surgeon-in-chief at the Hôtel Dieu hospital in Paris. Dupuytren made him "his personal supplier, furnishing him with models to emulate, instilling, feeding, in a sense, the spirit of invention and innovation that consumed him, bringing him every morning to the hospital to familiarize him with the operations and to stir his genius for designing instruments. Charrière appreciated from the very outset the advantage of seeing his instruments in action, in trying them or seeing them tried on cadavers."Under Dupuytren's patronage, Charrière's business affairs prospered. Beginning around 1825, according to Dr. Chéreau, "nineteen out of twenty surgeons consigned to him the fabrication of their ordinary instruments, as well as their experimental ones." Important orders came from French and foreign ministries and the Conseil général des hospices de Paris named Charrière principal contractor for prosthetic devices. In 1833 he moved the firms to no.9, rue de I'Ecole-de-Médecine (today these premises are occupied by the Auzoux enterprise, maker of anatomical and natural history models). At the 1834 Exposition of national industry, Charrière received his first medal, which would be followed by innumerable other distinctions. The jury stated that, "rising from simple cutlery artisan, M. Charrière has become head of the largest and most important surgical instrument making establishment. He utilizes, with equal success, French and English steel. His instruments enjoy a reputation for excellence, even superiority, as proclaimed by many surgeons at our hospitals."In 1837, during a visit to England, Charrière mastered the production processes of the British cutlery industry. From that moment on, he never again feared competition from across the Channel.Praise lavished upon him in the published works of physicians and surgeons, in addition to that of expositions, augmented the renown of the instrument maker. Alfred A.L.M. Velpeau (1795-1868), for example, illustrated many of Charrière's instruments in his 'Nouveaux elements de médecine operatorie'. Similarly, in the work of Claude Bernard and Charles Huette, one finds only the instruments of the Charrière firm.At the close of 1842, the enterprise moved across the street, to no. 6, rue de I'École-de-Médecine. The showroom and adjacent workshop were considerably more spacious. According to Dr. Chéreau, who knew Charrière quite well, "a large glass storefront facing the street permitted passersby to witness the magical transformation of steel Dupuytren, personified by a bust of perfect likeness, seemed to continue his watchful protection and inspiration." There was also a "vast, intriguing museum assembled by Charrière, that embodied in material from his labor, his careful research, his invention, which he opened with well-deserved pride to the curious, to young surgeons fascinated with the progress of their art." The granting of permanent residency and naturalization in 1841 and 1843 guaranteed the success of Charrière in France. At the age of forty he became a French citizen. Following the Exposition of 1843 he was named chevalier of the Legion of Honor and was promoted to the rank of off icier in 1851, after the universal exposition of London. Initially, Charrière had been proposed for the highest award at that exposition, but his name was stricken from the list of nominees for reasons yet unclear. The Grand Larousse of 1868 relates that on the occasion of a banquet at the Élysée palace, Louis-Napoléon, then prince-president of the Republic and later Emperor, exchanged his own diamond studded cross [of the Legion of Honor] with the one intended for Charrière, saying: "Permit this exchange henceforth I will wear no other." Charrière had become a national symbol of French industry.In 1852 Charrière ceded management of the firm to his son Jean-Jules, born in 1829, whose inventions he defended in several publications. In 1862, the latter was also named chevalier of the Legion of Honor. In 1865, however, [Jean-Jules] died during an outbreak of cholera in Paris. The father was obliged to enlist the collaboration of his former pupils, Robert and Collin, who published their first large catalogue in 1867. The elder Charrière died on 28 April 1876. By the late 1870s it appears that Adolphe Collin had become the sole senior proprietor of the enterprise. His grandson Pierre Collin and his granddaughter's husband succeeded him. In 1930 the Collin establishment was acquired by the Gentile firm. The auction of the instrument and book collections of the Charrière, Collin, and Gentile enterprises took place in 1978 in Paris.For the present, we can offer only a summary assessment of Charrière's accomplishments. Let us mention first the general points. The jury of the 1839 Exposition of national industry speaks of "the dual relation of the application of science to industry and of industry to commerce."This refers to the close ties between instrument maker and surgeon, as well as the various technical processes pioneered by Charrière, such as the introduction of softened or malleable ivory [ivoire ramolli], the substitution of nickel silver alloy [German silver or maillechort] for silver, and the refinement of steel tempering techniques. In the application of industry to commerce, Charrière reduced product cost sufficiently to stimulate an important, extensive export trade. He achieved this through a division of labor and specialization among his workmen. "A dozen years ago (in 1827) there were barely thirty or forty surgical instrument craftsmen in Paris (in 1839) Charrière alone employed over 150, including sixty in the shops beside his store since each workman specialized in a particular process, they earned 3, 4, and 7 francs daily." Instrument sales attained an annual value of 400,000 francs in 1839.Five years later, in 1844, the workforce numbered about 80 to 90 in Paris and 150 to 200 at Nogent (near Langres) sales figures reached a half million francs, of which two thirds came from exports. In the 1867 catalogue, a long list enumerated new production techniques, such as the stamping press, casting of metals, mass production, and so forth. Quality control assured the reputation of the Charrière firm. The 1849 catalogue indicates that several years prior to 1844 "no article, no matter how humble, leaves our workshops without first being subjected to trials that exceed the most rigorous conditions of normal usage. This applies particularly to instruments whose functioning involves the exertion of pressure." This leads us to a consideration of Charrière's most notable technical achievements. "The mere enumeration of instruments invented or modified by Charrière... would be a colossal undertaking, far exceeding the limits of this review." This is the preliminary remark made by Dr. Chéreau in 1876, and it remains, understandably, valid today.The most remarkable achievements of Charrière deserve mention here. He devoted his utmost attention to commonplace instruments, including for example, scalpels, scissors, forceps, and pocket cases [trousses]. His dressing forceps constitute the point of departure for the development of hemostatic forceps by Jules-Emile Péan (1830-1898) and his successors. The tenon join, first used in 1851, appears to have presaged the design of aseptic instruments.As a specialist in all manner of syringes, Charrière was responsible for producing the [hypodermic] syringe of Charles-Gabriel Pravaz (1791-1853) in 1852. In urology, an emerging discipline in the first half of the nineteenth century Charrière was quite active, particularly regarding lithotomy and lithotrity.As early as 1842, he created the famous gauge for calibrating sounds [bougies] and catheters as a standard unit of measurement he selected one-third of a millimeter. This standard is still in use today.For resections, an important surgical procedure of the period, Charrière modified the chain saw of Heine and in 1834 created the circular saw [scie a molettes] which he combined with a trepan. Today there are two types of amputation saws, the bow saw and the tenon saw the latter still identified with Charrfere's name.In the domain of ophthalmic surgical instruments, a former protégé of Charrière, Georges-Guillaume-Amatus Lüer, seems to have surpassed his master. Lüer was born in Braunschweig (Brunswick), Germany, in 1802. (Braunschweig was also the homeland of John Weiss, founder of the celebrated London instrument making firm). From 1830 to 1837, Lüer was Charrière's chief craftsman, and he subsequently opened his own business. He died in 1883, leaving the firm to his son-in-law H. Wülfing (born in Barmen, in Prussia).

Beste und umfangreichste Ausgabe dieses klassischen, frühen Abbildungswerkes !(Die 1.Aufl. enthielt nur 10 Tafl.). Neben Alibert und Cazenave gehörte P.Rayer (1793-1867) zu den bekanntesten französischen Dermatologen des 19.Jahrhunderts.

Daneben legte er besonderen Nachdruck auf eine anatomische und physiologische Begründung des Systems der Dermatosen. Nach Willan war Rayer einer der besten Kenner der Geschichte der Dermatologie. "Während die erste Auflage des Rayer'schen Hautatlas von vom Jahre 1826 noch ein Büchelein in großoktav darstellt, das auf eine Reihe von anspruchslosen, farbigen Kupfertafeln die Elemente der Hauterkrankungen, primären Effloreszenzen wie Papeln, Pusteln usw. darstellt, etwa wie man sich ein "Paukbuch" für Examen vorstellen würde, ist die 2. Auflage von 1835 bereits gänzlich verändert. Der Verfasser hat sich sichtlich bemüht, sein Werk dem "großen Alibert" und den großen Werken des Baillier'schen Verlages anzupassen- Das ursprünglich so bescheidene Heftchen ist zu einem Folioband mit 26 Kupfertafeln geworden, auf denen sich in farbigem Kuperstich 400 Abbildungen von Hautkrankheiten dargestellt finden. Der Stich ist von Ambroise TARDIEU und zwar meist farbiger Punktierstich. Es finden sich eine große Anzahl von Abbildungen, welche auch die pathologische Anatomie innerer Organe betreffen und welche in den früheren Werken kaum oder gar nicht begegnet sind, so. z.B. Blattern der Luftröhre und Milzbrand des Magens. Was die Diagnose anbelangt, so ist allerdings Hauttuberkulose, Syphilis und Carzinom oft noch nicht deutlich zu unterscheiden." Goldschmidt, pp.19-20 Neben Alibert und Cazenave gehörte Pierre Francois Olive Rayer (1793-1867) zu den bekanntesten französischen Dermatologen des 19.Jahrhunderts. Rayer hat zuerst den Begriff des "Ekzems" schärfer geprägt, indem er ein akutes und ein chronisches Ekzem feststellte. Daneben legte er besonderen Nachdruck auf eine anatomische und physiologische Begründung des Systems der Dermatosen. Nach Willan war Rayer einer der besten Kenner der Geschichte der Dermatologie.Second and best edition with superb hand-coloured plates, each with numerous figures drawn and engraved by Ambroise Tardieu. Each plate has a separate explanation leaf. "A classical summary of dermatological literature of the period".

      Berlin, Theodor Christain Friedrich Enslin, 1835-1837, 8, X, 809,(1) VI, 975, (1) pp., 2 feine marmorierte Pappbände im Stil der Zeit, mit Rückenschilddern und Rückenvergoldung kleiner St.a.Tit. First Edition! Christian Ludwig Ideler (1766-1846) "was primarily interested in the non-somatic causes of mental illness, although he certainly accepted somatic causes as well. He pointed out the importance of the passions in the genesis of insanity and questioned how they could be so poorly controlled. This line of questioning eventually led to a central point in Ideler's psychiatric thinking: drives. According to Ideler, drives are elements of the mind. They help satisfy human needs and are consequently necessary components of human life. Each drive develops on its own. Certain external influences and a lack of morals can lead to drive disharmony. One drive may develop at the expense of others and lead to an imbalance-namely, to insanity. Knowledge of the existence of the drives and the realisation of the necessity of their uniform development was an important premise for the maintenance of psychic health and a harmonious mental life. Those who are unable to achieve this state on their own, however, are prone to insanity and need a doctor's help. This is why only a moral and well-educated doctor should practise psychiatry. In addition to his drive psychology, which certainly shows parallels with Sigmund Freud's (1856-1939) later psychoanalytical ideas, Ideler's biographic-psychogenic approach is also noteworthy. In his case studies, he made particular use of the newly established discipline of forensic psychiatry, thereby helping to validate it. He emphasised the necessity of a comprehensive psychological examination that takes into consideration personal history, mental and physical peculiarities and also the social milieu and situation in which delinquent acts are committed. Ideler thought it particularly important to view people in their entirety he strove to heal the ailing person, not the illness. This kind of comprehensive, anthropological approach makes good sense in the age of scientific medicine."

        Vergleichende Untersuchung über die Haut des Menschen und der Haus-Säugethiere, besonders in Beziehung auf die Absonderungs-Organe des Haut-Talges und des Schweisses (pp.399-418, 2 Taf.).

      Arch. Anat. Phys., 1835.- Berlin, Verlag G.Eichler, 1835, 8, VI, 617, (1) pp., 14 Tafeln, Pappband d.Zt minimal fleckig. First Edition!"It did not take long before Breschet s findings and pictures of the structures inside the skin were picked up by microanatomists working on skin in German settings. In 1835 Ernst Friedrich Gurlt (1794-1882) published a paper on comparative research of the human skin and the skin of pet animals in the Archiv für Anatomie, Physiologie und wissenschafiliche Mediän. Gurlt specialised in the anatomy and physiology of domesticated mammals (Haussäugethiere) and was especially interested in the excretion of sebum and sweat by the skin. He argued that only after the latest developments in anatomy and physiology had Breschet and de Vauzeme finally proven the true existence of the 'sweat glands'. He dismissed all the work before the studies of Breschet:"Die Haut des Menschen (...) ist zwar schon von den altern Anatomen vielfältig untersucht worden, aber in Beziehung auf die Absonderungsorgane des Haut-Talges und des Schweisses nur mit wenig Glück. Bald nahm man Bälge, oder Drüsen für die Absonderung des Haut-Talges (der Hautschmiere) an, bald läugnete man ihr Dasein eben so verhielt es sich mit den sogenannten Hautporen oder Schweisslöchern, die man als bestehend voraussetzte, ohne sie wirklich nachgewiesen zu haben, oder ohne Grund wegläugnete. Erst in der jüngsten Zeit ist es gelungen, über diesen Gegenstand wie über so viele andere in der Anatomie und Physiologie, mehr Licht zu verbreiten."As in Breschet's work, pictures played a pivotal role in Gurlt's argument. A total of 11 figures on two separate copper engraved plates accompanied the text. In the plates Gurlt depicted and compared cross-sections of human, horse, cow, dog, swine and sheep skin. Apart from referring to his own pictures, Gurlt repeatedly mentioned Breschet's illustrations of the structures responsible for the excretion of sweat." When discussing the sweat glands, for example, Gurlt compared his own findings with Breschet's illustrations. He commented on the size, form and position of the sweat glands as they appeared in Breschet's figures." He further argued that Breschet and his colleague did not properly explain the typical structure of the little balls in the sweat glands and that this structure was not well indicated in their illustrations. Taking the schematic compositions of the internal structure of the skin by Breschet as a starting point, Gurlt further articulated and redefined the specifics of the sweat glands in his article and engravings. Gurlt thereby continued the schematic way of visualising the inner structures of human (and animal) skin.The article by Gurlt signified a shift to a vocabulary and visual articulation of sweat glands replacing the dominance of skin pores and sweat channels. In a discussion of the physiology of the skin in a German handbook in 1844 the physiologist Krause called Gurlt s images "the first faithful depictions of the actual glands"." Remarkably enough Krause dismissed the work of Breschet and de Vouzeme because of its many errors. The microscopical picture by Gurlt now represented the model image of the sweat glands. Gurlt's figure of the human sweat glands had already been directly copied by Rudolph Wagner in 1839 in his physiological plates (figure 3.7). Eventually, Gurlt's figure served as a template in the standardisation of a microscopical depiction of the sweat glands of the skin. Microscopical research had therefore articulated a new symbolic scheme of the anatomical composition of skin." Mieneke Mathilde Geertruida te Hennepe : DEPICTING SKIN. Visual culture in nineteenth-century medicine.PROEFSCHRIFT (Maastricht 2007)Further we find in this installment the first description of the nucleous :Wagner, Rudolph: Einige Bemerkungen und Fragen über die Keimbläschen (vesicula germinativa) (pp.373-377, 1 Taf. mit 7 Abb.)."The nucleolus, which had been recorded by no observer since Fontana, was now discovered by Wagner (1835) in the oocytes of various animals (Ovis (Fig. 2 on Tab. VIII), Salmo, Phalangium, Anodonta, Unio). He called it the Keimfleck or macula germinativa. The recognition of the nucleolus was important, because it helped in the identification of nuclei." Baker, The Cell-Theory: a Restartement, History and Critique, p.100"Wagner saw and described the nucleolus"."Rudolph Wagner (1805-1864) conducted research in a number areas. His most important work concerned mammalian ova and sperm. Purkyne had already in 1825, discovered the nucleus in the avian egg, while K.E.Bear had discovered the mammaalian ovum (1827), and J.V.Coste had identified its nucleus (1833). It remainded for Wagner to discover (1835) an important formation in the ovum of several species of mammals, which he called the macula germinativa - later known as the nucleolus."Vladislav Kruta, DSB 14, p.113f.Garrison & Morton No. 109.1

        Clinica del Parigino Spedale di S. Luigi ossia trattato compiuto delle mallatie delle pelle.

      Traduzione italiana di M.G. Levi. - Venedig, Antonelli, 1835, Gr.Fol. (515 x 335 mm), (4), XXVIII, 408 pp, mit 63 Farbstichtafeln mit Retuschen, feiner Halbledreinband Text etwas fleckig, Tafeln frisch. Erste italienische Ausgabe! Eines der schönsten, farbigen Abbildungswerke der Medizin überhaupt. Ein "Opus Magnum" der Dermatologie. Dieses berühmteste und umfangreichste Werk von Baron Jean Louis Alibert (1768-1837) bringt auf seinen 63 luxuriös ausgestatteten Farbtafeln eine umfassende Beschreibung der Hautkrankheiten. Das kostbare Werk ist mit einmalig schönen Bildnissen geschmückt, das Handcolorit ist zart und zurückhaltend. Durch die Beifügung der Accessoires des täglichen Lebens wurde den Abbildungen eine nie wieder erreichte Realistik verliehen. Das Charakteristische der Effloreszenzen ist auf jedem Quadratzentimeter eines Blattes minutiös herausgearbeitet. Quasi als Frontispiz enthält der Atlas den berühmten farbigen Baum der Dermatosen, dessen entfaltetes Geäst die Systematik der Hautkrankheiten symbolisiert. Der Text ist klar gegliedert. Das "Hôpital St.Louis", im Norden von Paris, wurde 1607 von König Henri IV gegründet. Es war zunächst ein Pesthaus, ab 1791 wurde es ein allgemeines Krankenhaus. Alibert gelang 1800 der Institution einen großen Namen zu verschaffen. Aus der Arbeit mit der Vielzahl chronisch Kranker konnte Alibert seine immense klinische Erfahrung gewinnen. Sein Unterricht war beispielhaft und er gilt als der Erstbeschreiber des Keloids, der Mycosis fungoides, der Akromegalie, sowie der Sklerodermie. Die Tafelwerke brachten ihm großes Ansehen und Ehre ein. Nach der Restauration erhielt er noch den Leibarztposten bei Ludwig XVIII. "Durch die Abbildungen der Krankheitsveränderungen wollte ich jene Eindrücke fixieren die später für den Pathologen wertvoll sein konnten, wollte durch die schockierenden (effrayantes) Farben des Malers den ärztlichen Blick schulen ich versuchte den Charakter der Krankheiten besser und genauer herauszuarbeiten und ihre kleinsten Nuancen festzuhalten kurz ich wollte die Sinne meiner Leser aufpeitschen (frapper), um vor ihnen die verschiedenen Phänomene wieder lebendig werden zu lassen, welche meine Augen in Erstauen versetzten."(Alibert) - "Seine Maler Vaviel und Maurice betreute er sorgsam, wies sie auf das Typische und auf leicht übersehbare Details hin. Da meist fortgeschrittene Ausprägungen der Krankheiten zur Reproduktion ausgewählt wurden, war deren Arbeit nicht angenehm. Als der Maler eines Leprakranken mit Lungengangrän den fötiden Atemgeruch nicht mehr aushalten konnte, zerstäubte Alibert ständig Essig während der fünf Tage der Bildfertigung." "Der Gesichtsausdruck spiegelt die psychische Situtation des Kranken einfühlsam wieder. (...) Noch heute erfreuen die Akkuratesse der Zeichnung, die Ausgewogenheit und Natürlichkeit der Farbgebung, vor allem die Genauigkeit der Darstellung des pathischen Substrates. Sein Werk bedeutet für die Krankenabbildung eine einmalige Pioniertat. Die meisterhaften Tafeln gaben eine Norm. Nachhaltig beeinflußte Alibert sein dermatologisches Fachgebiet, in allen Tafelwerken des Jahrhunderts." Vogt, Das Bild des Kranken, S.51. First Italian Edition - The largest and most spectacular of the early classics in dermatology, with hand-colored illustrations unsurpassed for their quality of execution, if not for their aesthetic appeal. This work is also containing for the first time Alibert's famous "family tree" of dermatoses. The first-class illustrations were produced about 160 years ago and are not only the equal of modern colour photographs, and they deliberately emphasized characteristics to the diseases illustrated. This book, one of the finest works of its kind, was produced at great expense. Most of the splendid, delicately hand-coloured engravings were drawn by Moreau-Valville and engraved by Tresca. These illustrations are life-size or near life-size, and are of great clarity. Jean-Louis- Marc, le Baron Alibert (1768-1837), was made physician for skin diseases in 1803, and the first to systematically teach dermatology in France. He introduced the first natural method of classifying skin diseases. He was the first to describe mycosis fungoides, keloid, etc., and introduced many new terms, such as "syphilides", "dermatoses", "dermatolysis", etc. The following illustrations were new: the tree of dermatoses in colour, erysipelas, variola and varicella, measles, scarlet fever and what is referred to as 'roséole idiopathique'. The new illustrations were executed by CHOUBARD. The technique used throughout is that strikingly fine coloured stipple engraving, generously assisted by the artist's brush."
