        Ueber den feineren Bau und die Formen der krankhaften Geschwülste. In zwei Lieferungen. Erste Lieferung (all publ.).

      Berlin, gedruckt und verlegt Georg Reimer, 1838, Folio, 1 Bl., 60 pp., 1 Bl., 4 (1 color.) v. 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. Wolf, Die Lehre von der Krebskrankheit, I,127ff.: "epochemachende Schrift". Haberling, Johannes Müller (1924), 198-99.THE FOUNDER OF MICROSCOPIC PATHOLOGY CELLULAR CHARACTER OF TUMORS- First Edition, in original wrappers as published! 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.

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. Porbase locates copies at the Society of Antiquaries of London, and the Victoria and Albert Museum. Innocêncio V, 435-438. OCLC 458944557.

        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.

      Nebst einer Vorrede von J.F. Dieffenbach. - Berlin, G. 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.

Public houses, and other resorts of the vicious are no where to be found in this happy village. Intoxication, the parent of so many vices and so much misery is indeed almost unknown here. No cursing or swearing is any where to be heard. There are here no quarrelsome men or brawling women.

        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 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.

        "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.

        Bogotá. In 1836-7. Being a Narrative of an Expedition to the Capital of New-Grenada, and a Residence there of Eleven Months.

      1838 - New York: Harper & Brothers for the author, 1838. 12mo in 6s (186 x 108mm). Original mid-blue blind-patterned cloth, printed paper title-label on spine; pp. [2 (blank l.)], [4 (title, copyright statement on verso, preface, verso blank)], [vii]-viii (contents), [13]-312, [2 (appendix, verso blank)], [2 (blank l.)]; extremities lightly rubbed causing minimal losses, spine slightly faded, light damp-marking on upper board and margins of early quires, variable light spotting, a few other marks, nonetheless a very good copy in the original binding; provenance: [?]W.H. Elphinstone, 1863 (inscription on front free endpaper). First edition. Steuart, a partner in 'a celebrated manufacturing house in New-York' (p. 14) embarked on the brig Marcellino on 19 November 1835, to establish a factory in Bogotá and to develop his firm's business in Columbia. The present work is based upon his experiences and observations during the expedition, and in his preface the author writes that, 'The following pages are not intended to afford either a geographical or scientific description of the places therein mentioned, as neither my ability nor opportunities qualified me to enter upon a field which the public are already aware has been so ably and thoroughly investigated. The principal object of this work is to describe "Men and Things" in New-Grenada as the writer in reality found them to be then existing; and, if possible, to afford the man of business, as well as travellers generally, some more correct information on many points of interest to them than myself had been able to glean from the pages of former works on the subject. At all events, whatever defects may become apparent in the perusal of this volume, the writer stands fearlessly pledged to the cause of truth, as well as to that spirit of free inquiry of the age which will rest satisfied with nothing less than the knowledge of stubborn and unclouded facts' (p. [v]). Later writers considered Steuart to be successful in this ambition, and Griffin comments that 'The author recorded what he observed and usually indicates whether he is pleased, neutral, or displeased. He is informative on many social and economic details, less so on politics. His comments on personalities are impressive', while Cortà s Conde and Stein judge the book a 'Good traveler's description of the Upper Magdalena and the area between the river and Bogotá. Includes data on commerce and manufacturing in Bogotá; one of the few good sources of information for the mid-1830's'. An English edition was published in London in 1839.

        TEXTS FOR EVERY DAY IN THE YEAR, principally Practical and Devotional. Selected by Elizabeth Fry.

      London, printed for Hamilton, Adams, and Co; Edmund Fry; and W. Darton and Son, Holborn Hill, circa 1838.. EDITION UNKNOWN, Preface dated 1831, INSCRIBED BY ELIZABETH FRY THE PRISON REFORMER on the verso front endpaper: "Mary Bullied from Eliz. Fry 1838", very small 8vo, approximately 72 x 54 mm, 2 7/8 x 2 inches, pages: iv, (188), collation: (A)-M8, M8 is a blank with printer's name J. Masters at the foot on recto, bound in mid brown cloth with embossed pattern, "TEXTS" in gilt on upper cover, pale yellow endpapers. Very slight wrinkling to spine, ink note in 2 margins, otherwise a very good clean tight copy. Elizabeth Fry was a Quaker prison reformer who transformed the lives of countless thousands of prisoners, convicts and homeless people, and whose ideas on criminal justice are still practised today. It was Stephen Grellet, a Quaker, who turned her attention to the shocking conditions in which women prisoners and their children lived at Newgate Prison: hungry, cold, dirty, without bedding, even newborn babies without clothing. Elizabeth's first visit to the prison with baby clothes and kindness established a rapport with the women. Soon she set up the first women's prison visiting committees and went on to bring order and cleanliness to Newgate.She started the first-ever prison school which was a great success. Later she saw to it that the prisoners were given useful occupation and taught skills. Uniquely for that time, she saw the prisoners as individual human beings and understood their need for self-respect. Her ideas and practices were to be influential and effective throughout Europe and eventually the world. All this Elizabeth did not accomplish on her own; she travelled widely in Britain, Ireland and Europe and everywhere she went her extraordinary compassion, eloquence and energetic common sense galvanised others into action'. (ODNB). Not in Bondy, a copy with the same imprint as ours held by the Society of Friends Library.(Copac), others listed with different publishers and printers.
