        Ledetraad til Nordisk Oldkyndighed, udgiven af det kongelige Nordiske Oldskrift-Selskab.

      Kjöbenhavn (Copenhagen), 1836. 8vo. Nice contemporary half calf with gilt red leather title-label and gilt spine. Vellum corners to boards. Ex libris to inside of front board. A nice and clean copy. Illustrated. (4), 100 pp.. Scarce first edition of this milestone publication, which laid the foundation of modern archaeology and transformed it into an exact science. With this seminal publication, Thomsen was the first to establish an evidence-based division of prehistory into discrete periods, and with it he became the originator of the three-age system (the division into Stone Age - Bronze Age - Iron Age), which is "the basic chronology that now underpins the archaeology of most of the Old World" (Rowley-Conwy: From Genesis to Prehistory, p.1). This foundational work altered our understanding of our world and our place in it and contains the first use of "culture" in an archaeological context."Christian Jürgensen Thomsen, (born Dec. 29, 1788, Copenhagen, Den.-died May 21, 1865, Copenhagen), Danish archaeologist who deserves major credit for developing the three-part system of prehistory, naming the Stone, Bronze, and Iron ages for the successive stages of man's technological development in Europe. His tripartite scheme brought the first semblance of order to prehistory and formed the basis for chronological schemes developed for other areas of the globe by succeeding generations of archaeologists." (Encycl. Britt.).Up until the beginning of the 19th century, our understanding of antiquities had been very loose and fumbling. Studying the artifacts, earlier archaeologists had used a great deal of imagination, especially when adapting information from written sources to the objects. Only when Thomsen enters the scene, this approach changes. He is the first to focus the investigation upon the artifacts themselves. Quickly realizing that this approach must be the only way forward, he soon distinguished clearly between objects, both similar and different, and established what belonged together in time and where there were chronological differences. He was among the first to differentiate between history that could be studied through written sources and prehistory which could only be studied through material culture. He realized - as the first - that in order to interpret findings of prehistoric objects, one would have to know their source and the context in which they were found - thus establishing the foundation for modern excavation technique. He trained the great archaeologist J.J.A. Worsaae and sent him on excavation expeditions to acquire artifacts for ethnographic museum that he had founded and thus also founded Danish archaeology. Thomsen was the first to perceive typologies of grave goods, grave types, methods of burial, pottery and decorative motifs, and to assign these types to layers found in excavation, thus combining our different sources of knowledge to establish certainty. When, in 1836, the Royal Society of Northern Antiquaries published Thomsen's illustrated contribution to "Guide to Scandinavian Archaeology" (i.e. the present publication), in which he put forth his chronology for the first time, together with comments about typology and stratigraphy, Thomsen already had an international reputation. But this publication gave him more than that - it made him the founder of modern archaeology and arguably the most influential archaeologist of all times. In 1816 Thomsen had been appointed head of "antiquarian" collections, which later developed into the National Museum of Denmark. It was while organizing and classifying the antiquities for exhibition that he discovered how much more sense it would make to present them chronologically, and so he did, using what is now known as the "three-age system". Proposing that prehistory had advanced from an age of stone tools, to ages of tools made from bronze and iron was not in itself a novel idea, but no previous proposals allowed for the dating of artifacts (which Thomsen's system did for the first time) and they were all presented as systems of evolution. Refining the idea of stone-bronze-iron phases, Thomsen turned it into a chronological system by seeing which artifacts occurred with which other artifacts in closed finds. In this way, he was the first to establish an evidence-based division of prehistory into discrete periods. It is this seminal achievement that led to his being credited as the originator of the three-age system.He provided for the first time a solid empirical basis for the system that ever since the present publication has laid at the foot of all archaeological research. He showed that artifacts could be classified into types and that these types varied over time in ways that correlated with the predominance of stone, bronze or iron implements and weapons. In this way he turned the Three-age System from being an evolutionary scheme based on intuition and general knowledge into a system of relative chronology supported by archaeological evidence."His published and personal advice to Danish archaeologists concerning the best methods of excavation produced immediate results that not only verified his system empirically but placed Denmark in the forefront of European archaeology for at least a generation. He became a national authority when C.C Rafn, secretary of the Kongelige Nordiske Oldskriftselskab ("Royal Society of Northern Antiquaries"), published his principal manuscript in "Ledetraad til Nordisk Oldkyndighed" ("Guide to Scandinavian Archaeology") in 1836."This groundbreaking publication was immediately translated into German (published the following year, 1837), in which form it reached a wide audience, influencing the archaeologists of all of Europe. In 1848, it was published in English and became highly influential on the development of archaeology theory and practice in Great Britain and the United States.In 1849 Thomsen founded the world's first ethnografic museum, which continued to contribute significantly to the development of modern archaeology."Throughout the course of the nineteenth century growing amounts of archaeological material were being recovered as the vastly expanding engineering activities of the Industrial Revolution were transforming Central and Western Europe into the "workshop of the world." Indeed, much of the popular appeal of archaeology in early Victorian times lay in its seeming demonstration that this contemporary technological advancement, which both intrigued and delighted the middle classes, was no mere accident but the acceleration of a tendency for "progress" which was innate in humankind. This evidence that cultural evolution as opposed to degeneration from an original state of grace had been a significant feature of human history made archaeology pre-eminently a science of progress. Within the context of the history of the discipline, however, the birth of this "scientific archaeology", as distinct from the antiquarianism of earlier times, is generally associated with the unfolding of the "Three Age System" and the pioneering work of C.J. Thomsen.While in the past a few archaeologists had attempted to subdivide prehistoric materials into various temporal segments, it was Thomsen who first envisaged, and applied, on the basis of archaeological evidence, a systematic classification of antiquities according to the criteria of material use and form which could be correlated with a sequence of temporal periods: the Ages of Stone, Bronze, and Iron, familiar to every student of archaeology for the last hundred years. The novelty of this approach, however, did not lie in the concept of technological development gleaned from his familiarity with the conjectural history of the Enlightenment, or in his assumption of a sequence of Stone, Bronze, or Iron Ages, itself a variation of Lucretius' popular model. Rather, it lay in his employment of "seriational principles" acquired from his extensive knowledge of numismatics, which he used to combine evidence concerning technology, grave goods, along with the shape and decoration of various artefacts into an internally consistent developmental sequence. Though Thomsen's Museum of Northern Antiquities in Denmark had arranged its collection of artefacts in accordance with this new system as early as 1819, the first written account of his research was not set out in print until the "Ledetraad til Nordisk Oldkyndighed" ("Guide Book to Northern/Nordic Antiquities") was published in 1836. While prior to Thomsen's work, thinking about antiquities in both Europe and the United States bas both intellectually fragmented and essentially speculative, the publication of the "Ledetraad" and its translation into German a year later unified archaeological studies by providing scholars with an exemplar or "paradigm". For, while previously antiquarians and indeed classical archaeologists, who were interested in what are now recognized to be prehistoric remains, tended to look to written records and/or oral traditions to provide a historical context for their finds, it was Thomsen who liberated archaeologists from this restrictive assumption through the creation of a carefully controlled chronology which allowed for the comprehensive study of those periods in history for which NO written records were available. In the second half of the nineteenth century, Thomsen's system established itself as THE system, as his basic classification of artefacts, arranged in periods by virtue of an analogy with the form and function of tools in his own day, was modified an elaborated upon by, among others, Worsaae, de Mortillet and John Lubbock." (D.A. Nestor: Cognitive Perspectives on Israelite Identity, pp. 46-48)

        The Practice of Cookery Adapted to The Business of Every Day Life

      Robert Cadell, Edinburgh 1836 - 468 pages. 17 x 11 cm. Mrs. Dalgairns, aka Catherine Emily Callbeck Dalgairns, wrote this book with the thought that any cook or housekeeper of limited experience would be able to prepare most of the dishes "in fashion" at the time. Dalgairns stated she was not providing any new recipes, but trying to select the best amongst those "already established in public favour." Originally published in 1829, this particular copy is fascinating for what is found inside: Pasted onto the paste-down front endpaper is a recipe for "Methods of Cooking Cheap Food for the Poor." Pinned to the front free endpaper is a hand written recipe "To Clean Marble." At the rear of the book there are 96 lined pages for notes with 46 pages of hand written recipes and remedies for food, household tips, and cosmetics. Pasted on rear free endpaper is a recipe, "Receipt for Preserved Meats." And best of ALL, on the rear paste-down endpaper there are 10 hand drawn illustrations of trussing: Chicken for Roasting, Goose, Peasant or Partridge, Turkey for Roasting, Pigeon, Duck, Hare for Roasting, Rabbit for Roasting or Boiling, Woodcock, Turkey for Boiling. Half Bound, Raised Bands, Panel in Gilt. Expertly repaired joints, boards rubbed, minor foxing. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Narrative of the Arctic Land Expedition

      London, John Murray, , 1836. to the Mouth of the Great Fish River, and Along the Shores of the Arctic Ocean, In the Years 1833, 1834, and 1835. Octavo. An ex-library copy, bookplate to front pastedown, small stamp verso of title, gilt ink accession number to the spine only, neatly recased in the original brown diapered cloth, new endpapers, title gilt to spine within gilt panel. Lithographic frontispiece and 15 other plates, folding map at the rear, tables to the text. Plates somewhat browned, map torn without loss, a little shaken, cloth slightly rubbed and sunned at the spine, a very good copy. First edition. Back had previously gained considerable experience as an arctic explorer through his participation in the abortive Buchan expedition and Franklin's two overland expeditions. Back was "one of the first competent artists to penetrate into the Canadian Arctic"; the many water-colours and drawings which he produced and which enhance his narratives and those of Franklin "are now considered an invaluable record of early northern history" [DCB]. Although Back was highly valued by the British Admiralty, he was not a popular personality and he developed a fairly controversial reputation as a dandy, womaniser and hopeless egocentric. The privately financed, government-assisted expedition described in this narrative was undertaken in 1833, for the purpose of aiding members of the Second Ross expedition, from whom no one had heard since 1828. They were also to conduct scientific investigations and a geographical survey of an unknown section of arctic coast. They travelled overland from Montreal to Slave River and Great Slave Lake, and descended the Thleweechodozeth or Great Fish River (later renamed the Black River) to the arctic coast, thence along Chanttrey Inlet to Ogle Point. "The ice prevented Back's proposed survey of the coast, and after again wintering at Fort Reliance he reached La Chêne, the Hudson Bay station where he had started over two years before, in August 1835, having travelled 7500 miles, including 1200 of discovery. Besides his discovery of a river over 440 miles long, he had made important observations of the Aurora Borealis, and had given the name of Montreal to an island afterwards sadly familiar in connection with the fate of Franklin. In September 1835 Back reached England, and received a hero's welcome. He was awarded the Royal Geographical Society's gold medal, and was promoted by the Admiralty to the rank of captain on 30 September 1835, by order in council—an honour that no other officer in the navy had received except William IV." [ODNB] "... now regarded as one of the finest travel books of the nineteenth century." [Howgego]

          Quanren juhuo [The perfect man's model]

      Singapore:  Jianxia shuyuan cangban. 1836. "8vo (23.5 cm.), pp. [62] (i.e. title page plus five sections, each with separate pagination: 6, 5, 6, 6, 7 double-sided leaves, for a total of 60 pages); xylographically printed; title page printed on yellow paper; original plain paper wrappers; fine. With several holograph corrections in the text, possibly authorial. A religious tract, translated roughly as ""The perfect man?s model....treatise on the teachings of the Holy Scripture, in 5 books, on unfeigned virtue, spiritual instruction, the Saviour, explanation of the law, theory of prayer, and the doctrine of Jesus true and self-evident"" by a Protestant missionary, Karl Gutzlaff, a fascinating character, typical of the sort of opportunist who clustered around the opium business in the old China Trade. In the 1830s he traveled as a translator on a British opium sailing vessel, known as a ""country ship"" illegally selling opium for Jardine, Matheson & Co. down the coast of China. Gutzlaff justified his complicity with the rationalization that the journey would be a good opportunity to preach the gospel and distribute religious tracts printed in Chinese. His moral flaws aside, Gutzlaff was a smart and lucid observer whose writings offer excellent detail about China and the China Trade in the days leading up to the first opium war. In his later days he oped a school for native Chinese missionaries, several of whom turned out to be opium addicts who used their missionary cover and funding for illicit purposes. The fraud exposed, Gutzlaff died a ruined man. In his 25 years in the field, Gutzlaff served in Java, Singapore, Bangkok, Macau and Hong Kong.  He worked with Medhurst, Bridgman and Morrison on the 1840 Chinese Bible, served as interpreter on Jardine's opium smuggling coasters, and assisted in the negotiations ending the First Opium War.. OCLC locates only the copy at the Singapore National Library."

        Ascent to the Summit of Mont Blanc in 1834

      - 1836 William Blackwood & Sons, Edinburgh, 2nd, 8vo, pp.ii, 119, color frontis w/ tissue guard, color lithograph w/ tissue guard, folding panorama, uncut, green cloth; inscribed ‘Barry’s Ascent of Mont Blanc was the 18th and is so recorded by C. E. Matthew’s in "Annals of Mt. Blanc" J. M. T.’, boards w/ spine cracked, both covers separated, AAC, Thorington & AAC/Thorington bookplates, 6 early clippings from catalogues pasted to front endpaper, 2 loose newspaper clippings (describing an ascent, 1890?), frontis bound facing p.25, good. Barry was accompanied by six guides when he made, according to his calculations, the 16th ascent (20th person not counting guides) of Mont Blanc. Meckly credits him with the 17th and Perret with the 21st ascent. Barry’s account of his ascent was republished in 1836 as a series of two lectures which vastly expanded the text of the first edition by threefold. This 2nd edition also included a very nice folding panorama of Mont Blanc as well as color versions of the two lithographs provided in the first edition. Pasted in the back is a TLS (dated 1939) from Thos. Rowatt, Director of the Royal Scottish Museum, to Thorington relating the destruction of various models. Thorington, James Monroe (1894 – 1989) – AAC President (1941-43), Honorary Member (1949), member Alpine Club (honorary), Alpine Club of Canada (honorary), Deutschen und Österreichischen Alpenverein, Club Alpin Francais, Schweizer Alpen-Club, and the Royal Geographical Society. Thorington was a member of the AAC for 64 years and editor of the AAJ for 12 years. Under Thorington, the Club became "the publisher of last resort" for mountaineers, ensuring that information was published which would otherwise not see the light of day. Thorington was perhaps the ultimate scholar of alpinism for the Club and involved in producing a long series of guide books. He spent many years climbing in the Canadian Northwest, with over 50 ascents, the Alps, England, Norway, Lapland, and Sicily. Mount Thorington, in the Purcell Range, bears his name. Thorington was the author of ‘The Glittering Mountains of Canada’ (1925), ‘Mont Blanc Sideshow’ (1934), ‘A Survey of Early American Ascents In the Alps In the Nineteenth Century’ (1943), ‘The Purcell Range of British Columbia’ (1946), translator and editor of Kain’s ‘Where the Clouds Can Go’ (1935), as well as numerous articles. Very few members gave so much of themselves to the Club. This book is from the collection of the American Alpine Club Library. Proceeds from the sale of this book go to benefit the Library.

      . (Würzburg) 3 1/4 Seiten gr.-folio. Schwach fleckig, kleine Randeinrisse.. Eduard von Rindfleisch (1836-1908), Pathologe. - Autobiographischer Artikel für das Brockhaus'sche Konversationslexikon, vermutlich für die 1875-1879 erscheinende 12. Auflage. - - "... schon in meinem dritten Studiensemester entschied ich mich für die pathologische Anatomie als meine Lieblingswissenschaft, ging im Herbst 1856 gleichzeitig mit Virchow nach Berlin und saß bis Ostern 1861 zu den Füßen dieses Meisters. Ich war niemals Assistent bei Virchow. Aeltere Semester gingen mir voran. Ich widmete mich daher desto ausschließlicher meinen literarischen Arbeiten und histologischen Studien. Ostern 1861 folgte ich einer Aufforderung des Herrn Prof. Heidenhain zur Uebernahme der Assistenz für Histologie in dem physiologischen Institute zu Breslau mit der Bedingung, daß mir zugleich gestattet werde, mich dortselbst für pathologische Anatomie zu habilitiren ..." - Im Folgenden über seine Professur in Zürich an der Seite von Billroth, Clausius u.a. ("Es war eine köstliche Zeit!") und seine Berufungen nach Bonn und Würzburg. - - "...Was meine wissenschaftliche Thätigkeit betrifft, so hat mir Mutter Natur eine besondere Gabe verliehen, aus der Beobachtung der Form und Zusammenfügung der Dinge ihre Bestimmung und Arbeit zu errathen und zu erkennen. Schon als Knabe saß ich tagelang während der Schulferien in einer Rumpelkammer, wo ... alte Uhren, Flinten, wunderliche medicinische und physicalische Apparate, ein Leuwenhoekisches Mikroskop etc. auseinanderzunehmen und wieder zusammenzusetzen waren. Später hat mich dieser Trieb und diese Fähigkeit auch den complicirten Maschinerien der Natur gegenüber nicht im Stich gelassen und jedesmal wenn es mir gelungen war, eine Formengruppe der pathologischen Anatomie in Zusammenhang zu bringen und zu verstehen, mußte ich an die alte Rumpelkammer denken ..." - - In einem Umschlag der Sammlung Brockhaus.

        Insekten der Schweiz, die vorzüglichsten Gattungen je durch eine Art bildlich dargestellt von J. D. Labram. Nach Anleitung und mit Text von Dr. Ludwig Imhoff.

      Basel, bei den Verfassern und in Commission bei C. F. Spittler, 1836-42. 6 volumes bound in 3. 8vo (170 x 107mm). With 436 (of 454) handcoloured lithographed plates. Contemporary black boards. The work was published in 20 parts and is one of the greatest entomological rarities. Horn & Schenkling call for 454. Our copy lacks 18 plates, of which 1 in the first volume, 4 in the second, and 13 in the 4th. There is no printed title to vols. 4 and 5, the indices of these volumes are in typewriting. No index and title was published for the final part as this was never finished. A few explanatory leaves in old typewriting./The plates are lithographed and finely handcoloured, very much in the style of Jacob Sturm, with the same attention to minute details. Jonas David Labram (1785-1852) was a Swiss botanical artist at Basel. Labram is better known for the illustrations he made for Hegetschweiler's 'Sammlung von Schweizer Pflanzen' & 'Sammlung von Zierpfanzen'. Copies however of his insects of Switzerland, which remained unfinished, are so rare that we have sold only one other copy during the last decades. In the course of years Donald Mac Gillavry, well-known Dutch collector of fine entomological books, tried to complete this copy.//Provenance: Bookplate of Donald Mac Gillavry///Nissen ZBI, 2336; Horn & Schenkling 12581.

Bailliere, 1836, Groß-Folio, 2 Bl., 50 pp., 10 lith.Taf., OHLnBd., Ecken etwas bestoßen, vereinzelt fleckig, insgesamt feines und großes Exemplar dieses seltenen Buches.. * Posthumous rare FIRST EDITION of Guillaume Dupuytren's (1777-1835) elaborate and beautifully illustrated work describing his new methods for the removal of bladder stone with 10 lithographed plates after drawings by N.H.Jacob drawn on stone by P.Langlume, of which 8 depict stages of the operation and 2 of the special instruments used, all life-size. - In French surgery the most famous operator and ablest diagnostician of his time was the Baron Dupuytren ... who attracted to his clinic at the Hotel-Dieu pupils from all countries of the world. An eloquent teacher and man of wide culture, he held a high position in the social life of his time.. -Castiglioni, 713. - A work of obvious importance in the history of "cutting for the stone", yet apparently little-known. - Not in Osler, Waller, Wellcome, J.A.Benjamin. Not in Ellis, A history of bladder stone; Heirs of Hippocates No.1223. - Dupuytrens letztes Werk, posthum erschienen, ist mit seinen herrlichen Tafeln wohl eines der schönsten in der operativen Urologie überhaupt. Seltene erste Ausgabe dieser bedeutenden Arbeit, in der seine Methode des bilateralen Steinschnitts erstmalig veröffentlicht wird. Die von Le Dran für grosse Steine im 18.Jhdt. angegebene Spaltung der Prostata nach zwei Seiten, die Sectio bilateralis, fand hier ihre genaue Begründung und Ausbildung sowie ihre eigentliche Einführung in die Praxis. - "Die von ihm begonnene Arbeit konnte Dupuytren nicht mehr vollenden und überließ deren Beendigung testamentarisch seinen Freunden und Schülern Sanson und Begin" (Hirsch II, 348). - Guillaume Dupuytren, der genialste Chirurg seiner Epoche, meisterhafter Operateur, scharfsinniger Diagnostiker, einer der ersten, der in Frankreich die Ligaturen großer Arterien ausführte und den traumatischen Aneurysmen erhöhte Aufmerksamkeit zuwandte, der 1822 die subcutane Durschschneidung des Sternocleidomastoideus vornahm, der das Enterotom zur Behandlung des künstlichen Afters und andere wesentliche Neuerungen empfahl".
