        Six Months in South Australia; with Some Account of Port Philip [sic] and Portland Bay, in Australia Felix; with Advice to Emigrants; to which is added a Monthly Calendar of Gardening and Agriculture. Adapted to the Climate and Seasons

      London, J. Cross, 1838. Octavo, vi, [ii, errata, verso blank], 208, [4], 209-296 (last page blank), [4] (publisher's advertisements) pages plus a small (one page) plan of Victor Harbor and a folding frontispiece map of the Port Lincoln district (201 x 243 mm); both maps are dated January 1839. Original blind-patterned green cloth titled in gilt 'James's South Australia, Port Philip [sic], and Australia Felix. 1839' on the front cover; cloth very lightly marked and slightly rubbed at the extremities, with minimal wear to the corners and the foot of the (slightly sunned) spine; endpapers and the folding map offset and a little foxed, with occasional foxing elsewhere; a very good copy, uncut and with 30 leaves unopened. The small label of 'Henry Hooper, Bookseller, 13 Pall Mall East' is on the front pastedown. Ferguson 2525 (not noting the four-page insert or the small map); McLaren 10400 (basically copying Ferguson). The unnumbered four-page postscript after page 208 provides a summary of Adelaide newspapers 'received up to the 14th July'; in it, mention is made of Eyre's overlanding expedition from Port Phillip to Adelaide in 1838, during which he discovered and named Lake Hindmarsh. In the lengthy appendix, James 'prints the journals of several private expeditions undertaken in the early years of settlement, including an account of Hawdon's famous overlanding expedition as well as other expeditions to Encounter Bay, Lake Alexandrina and to the River Murray' (Wantrup). The 30-page 'Manual of Gardening', almost certainly compiled by the author, is engagingly specific: 'those lofty whirlwinds, so peculiar to the Plains of Cowandilla'; 'this province must become, some day or other, a wine country' and then refers the reader to Busby ... The flyleaf is signed 'Wm Molesworth', and legibly offset onto it is his armorial bookplate (no longer present in fact); on the rear pastedown is a light pencil sketch of a male head and shoulders; the list of errata has two extras added in pencil - all in all, a wonderful provenance. Sir William Molesworth (1810-55), the British politician, was 'returned as member of East Cornwall (December 1832) in the first reformed parliament.... [H]is especial province was colonial policy. He obtained a committee to inquire into the system of transportation in 1837, and wrote the report. He continued to attack the system, and contributed to its ultimate abandonment. In his colonial policy he accepted the theories of Edward Gibbon Wakefield ... He supported all measures for colonial self-government, and protested with his party against the coercive measures adopted by the whig ministry during the Canadian troubles, after championing Lord Durham's policy' (DNB). If his portrait attached to his entry in Wikipedia is anything to go by, the sketch in this copy may well be a self-portrait.

        Beiträge zur operativen Orthopädik, oder Erfahrungen über die subcutane Durchschneidung verkürzter Muskeln und deren Sehnen.

      Hannover, Helwig, 1838, 8, VI, 154 pp., mit 18 Abbildungen auf 8 lithographierten Taf., Halbleinen der Zeit mit Rückentitel St.a.Tit., kleiner Eckabriss i.d. Vorrede restauriert, sonst gutes Exemplar. BEGINN DER ORTHOP?DISCHEN CHIRURGIE! ERSTE AUSGABE. Sehr selten. Noch bis in die 30iger Jahre des 19. Jahrhunderts galt die Maxime "Wahre Klumpfüße werden nicht geheilt und müssen amputiert werden." So kann man verstehen, mit welcher Begeisterung die neue Methode der subkutanen Durschneidung der Achillessehne aufgenommen wurde. Obwohl bereits 1816 von Delpech in Frankreich ohne bleibenden Erfolg angewendet, verhalfen erst die Berichte Stromeyers und die Veröffentlichung seines Buches der neuen Technik zum Durchbruch. Damit begann eine neue Ära in der Orthopädie. Nicht nur der Klumpfuß, sondern auch der Schiefhals, die Skoliosen, etc. konnten einer andern Behandlung zugeführt werden. Nicht wenig zur Verbreitung der neuen Methoden hat der vorzügliche Erfolg Stromeyers in der Behandlung des englischen Arztes William John Little (1810-1894) beigetragen. Little hat darauf hin die Methode Stromeyers in Berlin bei Dieffenbach und später in England eingeführt. -- In diesem Zusammenahng ist besonders erwähnenswert, daß Stromeyer den allergrößten Wert auf eine gute Nachbehandlung seiner operierten Patienten legte (Steckapparate, etc.). Georg Friedrich Louis Stromeyer (1804-1876), als Sohn eines Arztes in Hannover geboren, begann seine Lehrtätigkeit an der dortigen chirurgischen Schule und richtete zugleich eine Orthopädische Anstalt ein war entsprechend den damaligen Gepflogenheiten zehn Jahre lang in einem bestimmten Distrikt in Hannover als Armenarzt tätig. In dieser Zeit wurde Stromeyer, wie Bade berichtet, ein fgrüher Verfechter der Krüppelfürsorge, da er anregte, "Arme Krüppel und amre missgestaltete Kinder durch Staatsmittel zu heilen und zu behandeln". 1829 gründete Stromeyer in Hannover sein orthopädisches Institut, das bis 1838 bestand und arbeitet nach Delpech's Anregungen. In einem Prospekt dieser "Heilanstalt für Verkrümmte des Hofchirurgus Dr. Stromeyer zu Hannover" wird hervorgehoben, dass die zweite Etage für die Streckbetten bestimmt sein und dass auch gymnastische Übungen zweimal am tage im Freien stattfinden" (Valentin) In dieser Zeit beginnt stromeyer auch mit seinen . wie er sie nennt - "orthopädischen Versuchen", die sich bald zu einer erfolgreichen praktischen und wissenschaftlichen Tätigkeit erweitern. Die damals üblichen unblutigen orthopädischen Behandlungsmethoden, meist mit großen apparativen Aufwand ausgeführt, versucht er zunehmend durch kleinere operative Eingriffe, wie Sehnendurchtrennungen, zu verbessern bzw. erleichtern. 1838 erhielt er den Lehrstuhl für Chirurgie an der Universität Erlangen. 1841 ging er nach München, 1842 nach Freiburg. 1848 ist er Professor in Kiel und Generalstabsarzt der Schleswig-Holsteinischen Armee. 1854 wird er Generalstabsarzt der Hannoverschen Armee, wo er 1866 bei der Schlacht von Langensaltza seine kriegschirurgischen Grundsätze praktizieren konnte. Noch 1870-71 ist er als Chirurg bei der Schlacht von Sedan und während der Belagerung von Paris in Versailles tätig. Sein unvergänglicher Verdienst, ist es aber die subkutane Tenotomie und Myotomie zum bleibenden Eigentum der Chirurgie gemacht zu haben.*First Edition. Rare. Stromeyer is the founder of modern surgery of the locomotor system. He advocated and practised subcutaneous tenotomy for all deformities of the body arising from muscular defects. In Stromeyer's private institute for orthopaedics in Hannover, the treatment of clubfoot was revolutionized. One of his early patients and most enthusiastic proponent of his methods, was the great British surgeon William John Little (1810-1894). The result of tenotomy of his heel cord was so satisfactory to him, that Little remained at Hannover for a period to acquire the knowledge of the technique. At the end of his stay in Germany, he hastened to Berlin to exhibit and teach the new method. He was received by the noted professor Dieffenbach, who in a remarkable short time sectioned 140 tendo-achilles. Little was the first eminent orthopaedic surgeon in the British Isles and the founder of the Royal Orthopaedic Hospital in London.Stromeyer, professor in Erlangen, Munich, Freiburg, Kiel, and successively surgeon-general of the Schleswig.-Holstein and Hannoverian armies, was also the father of modern military surgery in German. His "Maxims of War-Surgery" made an epoch in military medicine. Stromeyer was also a poet and wrote an attractive autobiography.Garrison-Morton No, 431 Waller 9320 Valentin, Geschg. d.

Schumann, Troschel et Müller ad. nat. del., Grüzmacher gestochene Tafeln, Halbleinenband mit Rückenvergoldung u. Rückenschild feines Exemplar. Erste und einzige Ausgabe! Grundstein mikroskopischer Untersuchungen krankhafter Gewebe! Im Frühjahr 1838 erschien dieses epochemachende Werk das über die erste Lieferung nicht herauskam. Es wurde im selben Jahr publiziert als Johannes Müllers Schüler SCHWANN feststellte, daß die tierischen Gewebe aus Zellen beständen. Müller wandte diese Erkenntnisse sogleich auf die Geschwulstlehre an. Als wichtigsten Grundsatz fand er, daß die pathologische Entwicklung der Gewebe mit der embryonalen total übereinstimme. Diese Entdeckung schließt fast die ganze Lehre von den krankhaften Neubildungen in sich. Es wird Müller's unvergänglicher Verdienst bleiben, den Weg zur Erkenntnis der feineren Struktur der Geschwülste durch das Mikroskop zuerst beschritten und für seine Nachfolger, besonders Rudolf Virchow, gebahnt zu haben.

The founder of pathological Histology as an indepedent field, and the first microscopical study of diseased itssue, by which Johannes Müller (1801-1858) showed that the cell theory was a requirement for the study of cancer. In the tumors which he studied Müller identfied cells, their nuclei, granules, fibres, and crystals. The illustrations in the book show better than words what Müller saw. He was thus the source for the work of his pupil Rudolf Virchow.Garrison & Morton 2612 Long, A History of Pathology, 187-89 Haagensen, Books of Cancer, no. 41

        Voyage en Abyssinie, dans le pays des Galla, de Choa et d'Ifat; précédé d'une excursion dans L'Arabie-Heureuse ... 1833-1857.

      Paris, Louis Desessart, 1838. 4 vols. 8vo. Quarter dark green calf over marbled boards, marbled edges and endpapers, spine with raised bands, tooled in gilt and decorated in blind; bound without the map as sometimes the case; a little faded in places, but overall a sturdy, clean and uniform set. First edition. Combe and Tamisier travelled as part of the Saint-Simon movement during the years 1835-1837 in an endeavour to contribute to the exploration of Abyssinia and knowledge of Ethiopian culture. The movement was based on socialist co-operative principles and sought to raise the status of women and workers. They sponsored many expeditions into Egypt, Yemen and other parts of Africa (possibly due to the fact that their leader was arrested for propagating dissent in 1832, and they were looking for a safe haven). In particular, Combe's work is best reputed for his attention to the details of the lives of women and disadvantaged peoples in the countries he visited. Combe went on to gain a reputation as an explorer of Ethiopia, and worked as an informal diplomat. The exploration reports of Combe and Tamisier were read widely amongst those with an interest, and served as a good source of information for the wider attempts to bring regions such as Abyssinia into the trade network.

Library stamp to the title page, frontis: Bibliotheque Geographique, Hachette & Cie. (4), 343p. Fold-out frontis, title page vignette, three black and white in-text vignettes, and three hand coloured fold-out plates, collated complete. The fold-out map is by the cartographer John Arrowsmith (1790-1873). William Francis Ainsworth (1807¿1896) was a geographer and geologist. "In 1835 Ainsworth was appointed surgeon and geologist to the expedition to the Euphrates under Francis Rawdon Chesney to examine the feasibility of opening up the Mesopotamian rivers to steam navigation as a new route to India, as well as asserting British political presence in the area, promoting British commercial ties, and gathering scientific and archaeological data. Ainsworth constructed geological sections across northern Syria and the Taurus Mountains, discovered several deposits of commercially important minerals in Mesopotamia and Anatolia, and explored a substantial part of south-east Persia. With Chesney, Ainsworth published the first account of the expedition in the 'Journal of the Royal Geographical Society' (1837) and the next year wrote his own fuller account as 'Researches in Assyria, Babylonia and Chaldaea' (1838)." - ODNB Condition: Very good. Pencil inscription to the frontis, title page, and one of the plates. Tidemarks to plates. Three of the plate have several small closed tears that have been repaired, measuring no more than 2cm.

      Paris, Maulde & Renou, 1838. - 8vo. 64 pp. Burgundy paper spine. First and only edition. Discusses trade in silk and attempts at silk production in various parts of the Iberian Peninsula, including Portugal, Valencia, Murcia, etc., from ancient times until the 1820s, with some emphasis on the efforts of the Arabs. The second Visconde de Santarem (1791-1856) has been called "the greatest figure in the history of Portuguese cartography" (Cortesão, History of Portuguese Cartography I, 23); in fact, it was Santarem who coined the term "cartographia". He traveled to Brazil with the royal family in 1807 and held various diplomatic posts; he also served as Keeper of the Royal Archives at Torre do Tombo from 1824 until 1833, when he was dismissed for political reasons. Although he spent the rest of his life in Paris, his standing with the Portuguese government later improved to the point that the government funded many of his publications, and appointed him Keeper of the Torre do Tombo without requiring him to return to Portugal.

        Autoplastie, oder Wiederherstellung zerstörter Körpertheile auf Kosten anderer mehr oder minder entfernten Theile.

      Aus dem Französischen übersetzt von Dr. P. Kapff. - Reutlingen, Druck und verlag von Ensslin und Laiblin, 1838, 8, 184 pp., feiner Halbledereinband. Rare - First German Edition of the first treatise on plastic Surgery in general theAutoplastie ou restauration des parties du corps qui ont été détruites, à la faveur d'un emprunt fait à d'autres parties plus ou moins éloignées (1836)."However we are indebted to Phillipe Frederic Blandin who, in 1836, published in Paris his summary of the state if the art. 'Of these 84 autoplasties there were 39 cases of rhinoplasty, seven of blepharoplasty, fourteen of cheiloplasty, nine of genioplasty, one of uranoplasty, three of bronchosplasty, two of cytosplasty, four of urethroplasty and five different skin autoplasties. The youngest patient was six and the oldest 67 years. Twelve had faulty adhesions from old ulcers on burns, three had congenital malformations, nine had gangrene, fifteen were operated on shortly before for cancer, nine had fistulas and the remaining 36 were mutilated by wounds or eczema, scrofula or syphilis. Five of these patients died of accidents, the occasional cause of which was the operation. Complications occurred post-operatively in 24 patients: in nine there was gangrene of the flap, the three the parts did not unite, 27 were afflicted by an erysipeloid inflammation and seven suffered nervous affections of a greater or lesser intensity. In 61 of 84 patients the healing was satisfactory. Consequently, according this review, which is naturally incomplete, three out of four patients were healed by the autoplasty, one of 17 was lost, accidents occurred in half and gangrene of the flap as observed in one of nine cases'." Antony Walker, The Progress of Plastic Surgery (1982), pp.XI-XIIPhilippe-Frédéric Blandin (1798-1849) French surgeon born in Aubigny, department of Cher from1821 he served as an anatomical assistant to the faculty of medicine in Paris, where he later worked as prosector (1824). In March 1826 he earned his aggregation in surgery with a dissertation titled "Diversae in abdomen liquidorum effusiones". From 1841 to 1849 he was a professor to the faculty of medicine (chair of opérations et appareils).Blandin is remembered today for his pioneer work in rhinoplasty and septoplasty. He is credited with coining the term autoplastie (autoplasty) to describe skin taken from same patient for grafting purposes.He provided an early description of the anterior lingual glands, which are mixed glands of the tongue that are sometimes referred to as "Blandin's glands". His best written effort is an atlas of anatomy and surgery called "Traité d'anatomie topographique" (1834).Zeis No.480 Zeis Index No.485 Garrison & Morton No.5743.1 (1st. French. Ed. 1836)

        Handbuch der plastischen Chirurgie.

Reimer, 1838, 8, XXII, 576 pp., mit 2 fein kolorierten doppelblattgroßen, gefalteten Kupfertafeln und zahlreichen Textholzschnitten, wohlerhaltener Pappband in Lederkassette. Optimum Omnium Das erste Handbuch der Plastischen Chirurgie The first textbook devoted soley to plastic surgery ERSTE AUSGABE des ersten Handbuches der plastischen Chirurgie. Eines der gesuchtesten und seltensten Pionierwerke der Plastischen Chirurgie überhaupt! In einer kleinen Auflage erschienen und im Gebrauch zerschlissenen, sind die wenigen noch existierenden Exemplare in den Händen von Bibliotheken und Sammlern. Der Zeis gilt als praktisch unauffindbar. Es ist wenig bekannt, daß das Werk ganze Textpassagen aus der Feder von Dieffenbach enthält: "Dieffenbach hatte mir versprochen, mir seine neuesten Operationsverfahren mittheilen zu wollen ..als mein Buch in Berlin gedruckt wurde, schaltete er ganze Seiten ein, welche die Beschreibung seiner neuesten Verfahren enthielt ... Dieffenbach spricht hier überall von sich in der dritten Person, so dass man glauben musste, ich hätte es geschrieben, und bezog sich dabei an vielen Stellen ( p.314, 318, 321, 334, 338, 390) auf die fünfte Abteilung seiner Chirurgischen Erfahrungen, welche .. gleichzeitig mit meinem Handbuch erscheinen sollte .. Aber diese fünfte Abteilung ist nicht herausgekommen, und es gehört daher zu den litarischen Curiositäten, dass ein Buch, welches niemals erschienen ist , so oft und mit solcher Bestimmtheit citiert worden ist." Zeis. Aus Dresden stammend, ging Eduard Zeis (1807-1869) 1844 als Professor der Chirurgie nach Marburg, um später wieder in seiner Heimatstadt tätig zu werden. Zeis gehört zu den Vätern der modernen plastischen Chirugie und sein Handbuch, in dem er alles bis dahin Vorhandene ordnete und zusammenfasste, ist ein Meilenstein der Wiederherstellenden- u. Plastischen Chirurgie das seinen Wert auch in Zukunft behalten wird. " Möge dieses Werk denn wie das des Caspar Taliacotius auf die spätere Nachwelt übergehen." - Dieffenbach.Der Zeis ist extrem selten, international bekannt und gesucht, der Preis angemessen dem sehr guten Erhaltungszustand des Exemplars. *Rare First Edition of the first textbook devoted to plastic surgery. " The term p l a s t i cs u r g e ry was first used by E. Zeis in the title of his book published in 1833" - Skinner, Medical terms. In the first chapter Zeis gives his reason for devising and introducing the term " P l a s t i s c h eC h i r u r g i e ". His "Handbuch" is also valuable for containing the first known bibliography and history of plastic surgery in the field (pp. XV - XXXI) which he greatly expanded into a bibliography and history of plastic surgery, published in 1863. With a forword by Dieffenbach. Dieffenbach inserted als whole pages containing descriptions of his most recent techniques. Dieffenbach here refers to himself throughout in the third person, chiefly he refers to the fifth section of his "Chirurgische Erfahrungen". But this fifth section did not appear, and it is a literary curiosity that a book which never has been published is quoted so often and with such exactitude.

        Autograph Letter Signed ("Elizth Hamilton"), to General J.H. Astrom of Utica, N.Y.

      New York, 1838. 1 page. 8vo. Half sheet. Minor marginal soiling. 1 page. 8vo. Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton (1757-1854), widow of Alexander Hamilton and daughter of General Philip Schuyler, writes to General J.H. Ostrom of Albany, regarding payment of a debt: "I have the pleasure to send you the above check that you may receive the amount awarded to me by the Syracuse Rail Road, and after deducting the amount due to you, please remit me the Balance." The top half of the sheet, bearing the check, is not present. Elizabeth Hamilton was no stranger to financial problems; the Hamilton's struggled even at the height of Alexander's career, but his death as a result of a duel with Aaron Burr rendered "Elizabeth and [her] family virtually destitute. Left to pay her husband's debts and raise their children (the youngest was two), Elizabeth relied on the help of friends and family. The death of her father four months after her husband's provided her with some financial relief through her inheritance of property and money. She was able to repurchase The Grange, which had been sold at public auction. She also petitioned the government for her husband's army pension that he had waived. Not granted until 1837 through a special act of Congress, her petition provided her with $30,000 and included land. Even though Elizabeth spent her widowhood in poverty, she was active in charitable organizations. She held positions in the New York Orphan Asylum Society and founded orphanages in New York City and Washington, D.C. She was known to take homeless children into her own home..." (ANB).

        Chippeway Squaw & Child

      F.W. Greenough, Philadelphia 1838 - Portrait. Lithograph with original hand coloring. Page measures 19.25" x 14" Beautiful portrait from the folio edition of McKenney and Hall's "History of the Indian Tribes of North America". As Superintendent of the Indian Trade Bureau, Thomas McKenney wanted to document the rapidly disappearing culture of the American natives. He activated the project, sponsored by the War Department, by commissioning writer James Hall and Charles Bird King, a renowned American portraitist. King painted the prominent Indians while they visited Washington D.C. as treaty delegates. Most of the original oil paintings were destroyed by fire in the Smithsonian Museum in 1865. These lithographs, published 1842-58, are all that remain and are still hailed as one of the best visual records of influential Native Americans of the nineteenth century. Children were considered blessings by all tribes, a sentiment evident in this portrait. The commonly used cradleboard is also illustrated. Overall toning with tape residue and chipping along edges. One of many Native American portraits in our collection.

        The Diary of a Judge

      Brussels Belgian Printing and Publishing Society 1838 - First edition. The book is reasonably firmly bound in contemporary quarter brown leather with marbled boards and endpapers, there is loss at the corners and spine ends are the leather is lifting in places. The text block is slightly toned and dusty, with minor damage to the top corners of the first two pages and some staining, there is a bookplate to the front pastedown. A very uncommon collection of short stories, of a ribald, weird and mildly criminous nature, by this woefully under-appreciated Irish writer. Copac locates only one copy of this edition at Oxford University. [Attributes: First Edition]

        "Beiträge zur Phytogenesis"; In: Archiv für Anatomie, Physiologie und Wissenschaftliche Medicin. Jahrgang 1838. Edited by Johannes Müller (1808-1858)

      Berlin: Viet, 1838. 8vo. Schleiden's paper is on pp. 136-76. Entire volume: 608 pp. 16 plates at end on 15 leaves, most folding. Early 20th-century cloth. Schleiden co-founded cell theory, along with Theodor Swann and Rudolf Virchow, and was one of the first German biologists to accept Darwin's theory of evolution. "Schleiden demonstrated that plant tissues are made up of and developed from groups of cells, of which he recognized the 'cytoblast' or cell-nucleus. He observed with great accuracy certain other activities of the cell, and is an important figure in the development of the cell theory. Unfortunately he held that young cells develop spontaneously from the cytoblast, an acceptance of the theory of spontaneous generation" (Garrison-Morton-Norman 112). Although his theory of spontaneous generation of the cell was incorrect, Schleiden's work marked an important stage in the development of modem cell theory. Milestones of Science 175; Norman 1907; Printing and the Mind of Man 307a (Schleiden "presented for the first time the notion that a plant, for example, is a community of cells"). Rare. Four leaves sprung, title lined on verso.
