        Rechtslexikon für Juristen aller teutschen Staaten enthaltend die gesammte Rechtswissenschaft. Bearb. von ... red. von Julius Weiske.

      Leipzig, Wigand, 1839-62.. 15 Bände und Repertorium (in 15 Bdn.). 22,5 x 14 cm. Zeitgenössisches Halbleder mit Rückentitel und dezenter Rückenvergoldung. Einbände berieben, Kapitale teils etwas beschädigt. Ein Band mit längerem beidseitigem Gelenkeinriss. Papier mäßig gebräunt, teils etwas stockfelckig.. Zischka 177. Seltene Originalausgabe des wichtigen Werkes in annähernd uniformen Einbänden, lediglich die Bezugspapiere der Deckel varieren, was dem langen Erscheinungszeitraum geschuldet sein dürfte.

Einer freien politischen Richtung zugeneigt gab er von 1831-35 mit Bülau das "Vaterland", eine politische Zeitung von liberaler Färbung heraus, in der sich häufig Aufsätze aus seiner Feder befinden. 1836 schrieb er eine größere Abhandlung (11½ Bogen) über "Hochverrat und Majestätsverbrechen, das crimen Majestatis bei den Römern" (Leipzig), welche Abhandlung seiner Zeit Aufsehen erregte. Hauptsächlich aber wurde W. der Juristenwelt durch die Redaction des "Rechtslexicon für Juristen aller deutschen Staaten etc." bekannt, das von 1839 bis 1862 in Leipzig in fünfzehn Bänden unter Betheiligung einer größeren Anzahl Rechtsgelehrter erschien>> Johann August Ritter von Eisenhart in: ADB, Band 41 (1896), S. 552.

        Fine ALS 'Rudolf' in German with translation, to Franz  August von PAUSINGER, (Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary, 1858-1889, committed suicide at Mayerling)

      (1839-1915, the Austrian painter of hunting scenes, who accompanied Rudolf in his eastern travels), asking him to send "reports about the bears, the wind and weather conditions" as he wishes to bring a party hunting "after the 15th November ... some strong bears, well stalked and hunted, especially in snow, would give me great pleasure ... in Görgény or Fancsal" in Eastern Transylvania, with two contrasting cabinet photographs each 6½" x 4½", of Rudolf, both in uniform wearing the Golden Fleece of Austria, one by Otto von Medvey, three-quarter face, with moustache and light beard, dated 1884 in pencil on the verso, the second by Victor Angerer, in profile, wearing also the Star of St. Stephen of Hungary, his beard shaved, taken shortly before he died, 2 sides 8vo., with conjugate blank, Vienna, (Sunday) 28th October slight splitting at fold Pausinger was one of Rudolf's closest friends outside family and court. Rudolf is said to have confided to Pausinger six years before at Görgény that he would not succeed to the throne and he was nearly killed by a bear there in 1885. It is not clear that the proposed expedition took place. Rudolf's alienation from his father was increasing, as were the criticisms of him in the foreign press, and he would have loved to have got away. However, the next Saturday, 3rd November, his cousin Countess Larisch made the fateful introduction with Baronesse Mary Vetsera, (1871-1889), whom he had observed at the races in April, and whom the Prince of Wales had pointed out at the opera on 14th October. They met again on the 10th. In the middle of November the doctor advised a change and Rudolf and his wife and child had a fortnight in the Adriatic from 27th December. On their return the fatal attraction grew apace and by 30th January Rudolf and Marie were dead. An exceptionally rare autograph.

        Observations on the Parallel Roads of Glen Roy, and of other parts of Lochaber in Scotland, with an attempt to prove that they are of marine origin.

      (London, Richard and John E. Taylor, 1839). 4to. Without wrappers. Extracted from "Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London.", 1839, Part I. Pp. 39-81 and 2 plates. (1 engraved map and 1 lithographed plate). The last plate faintly dampstained.. First appearance of Darwin's investigations of the geological phenomenon of the so-called "Parallel Roads" in Scotland."The first published description of the Parallel Roads was by Thomas Pennant in 1771 in his book A Tour of Scotland. This work was far from scientific but during the 19th century Glen Roy played an important role in the development of geological and geomophological theories of landscape evolution.1 Initially the 'Roads' were believed to be lake or marine shorelines. How they were formed in an area that was now high above the sea and without signs of a closed lake bed was a mystery. Initially it was thought that the shorelines were of marine origin and formed during a period when the sea reached levels of the Parallel Roads. Among the proponent of this theory were both Charles Darwin and Charles Lyell.2 It was in particular Darwin who was impressed by the geology of Glen Roy. In 1838 he wrote to Lyell, "I wandered the mountains in All directions and examined that most extraordinary district. I think without any exceptions, not even the first volcanic island, the first elevated beach, or the passage of the Cordillera, as so interesting to me as this week. It is far the most remarkable area I ever examined. ... I can assure you Glen Roy has astonished me".3 Darwin and Lyell proved to be wrong in this matter." (Jan Oosthoek). Freeman: 1653

        Die Sternschnuppen

      Hamburg: Perthes, Besser und Maure, 1839. First Edition. Boards. Good. First Edition. xxiii, [1], 357, [1] pages plus 9 plates. A rather worn copy in early printed boards. Early rebacking with portions of the original spine laid down. Corner tips reinforced un-necessarily with glue. Upper corner bumped affecting textblock. Boards. Benzenberg was the co-discoverer (with Brandes) of the upper-atmospheric (nontropospheric) location of meteors. In 1844 he built a private observatory at Bilk, which he donated to the city of Dusseldorf with a grant to pay for the salary of a resident astronomer. Benzenberg and Brandes worked closely together on meteor research. Die Sternschnuppen was his "up to date monograph, largely chronological, of the first four decades of meteor research. It was evidently intended as an homage to his deceased associate of 1798, H. W. Brandes." Benzenberg published an earlier meteor title: "Die Sternschnuppen sind Steine aus den Mondvulkanen" in 1834 which attempted to explain his theory that meteors came from Volcanos on the Moon. Provenance: Astronomer Sir John F. W. Herschel's copy with the Collingwood library stamp on the title page and small ownership signature of Dr. Sydney Ross's sticker on the front pastedown. Includes a few marginal notes by J.F.W.H. (Herschel Library #308) Hockey, Biographical Encyclopedia of Astronomers; Dr. Sydney Ross, Catalogue of the Herschel Library.

        The Life and Adventures of Nicholas Nickleby

      London: Chapman & Hall 1839 - Illustrated by Hablot Knight Browne ("Phiz"). First edition, first issue, bound from the publisher's parts, with all of the earliest issue points called for by Smith and Hatton & Cleaver. Publisher's first state olive green cloth, with boards and spine ruled in blind, spine lettered in gilt. About near fine, with some light wear to the extremities, faint vertical crease and a hint of dimming to the spine, discreet minor repair to the spine head, replaced endpapers, spine very lightly starting inside the front cover, a few faint hints of scattered spotting, otherwise bright and clean pages, plates lacking much of the usual toning. Overall, an attractive and presentable copy. Smith I, 5. Housed in a custom dark green folding box, with a black morocco title label lettered in gilt to the spine. Like its predecessor Oliver Twist, Nicholas Nickleby is a novel set in Victorian England that features a male youth as the protagonist and puts a human face on the social depravation of the British underclass. After losing his father, Nicholas is sent to a boy's school where he witnesses and attempts to prevent the mistreatment of the orphan students by their tyrannical adult wardens. Before its book publication on October 23, 1839, Nicholas Nickleby was issued in twenty parts, published serially in nineteen monthly installments from April 1839 - October 1839. This first edition in book form was bound from the publisher's parts with the stab holes from the original wrappers present and all the points called for by Smith, meaning that it is one of the earlier issues of the first edition. Furthermore, this copy was bound from the earliest states of the publisher's parts, for, as Hatton and Cleaver note, "There are two distinguishing features only, which point out early printings from later issues:" the substitution of "visiter" for "sister" on page 123 and "latter" instead of "letter" on page 160; both of these errors were corrected while Nicholas Nickleby was issued in parts, causing Smith to cite the point on page 123 as "in some copies" only and omit the point on page 160 entirely. This copy has both "visiter" and "latter," deeming it a scarce first edition bound from the first state of the publisher's parts. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Verldsomseglaren, eller sammandrag af de upptacktsresor

      Stockholm: Ecksteinska Boktryckeriet, 1836-, 1839. Eight volumes bound in seven, duodecimo; a very attractive set in contemporary patterned wrappers, slightly rubbed, with hand-lettered papered spine labels. Swedish edition of a voyage classic. Rare Swedish edition of Dumont d'Urville's historical account of voyages around the world from the sixteenth to the nineteenth centuries, from Magellan, Tasman and Dampier to Cook, La Pérouse and Flinders. Written in the form of an idealised world voyage, the details of places on the voyage are drawn from virtually all the major explorers, from Magellan to Laplace and including even the inland explorers. Although the publication uses the very commercial name of the voyaging hero Dumont d'Urville, it seems to have been a classic piece of nineteenth-century ghost writing. It was a very successful publication and went through numerous editions and translations.Despite the long section devoted to Australia (Vol. VI, pp. 848-1049), this edition was not recorded by Ferguson (who does note French, German and Russian editions); nor is it recorded by Sabin, who does list a number of other versions (see 21211-21215). The French original was first published in 1834.This Swedish version appeared over three years and a long list of subscribers to the work appears in the first volume.

        Abhandlung über Perkussion und Auskultation.

      - Wien, bei J.G.Ritter von Mösle's Witwe & Braumüller, 1839, 8°, XVIII, 271, (1) pp., Halbledereinband der Zeit mit Rückenvergoldung; N.a.Tit; mit neunzeiliger eigenhändiger Widmung des Verfassers. "Skoda put physical signs on a scientific basis and created cardiology as a specialty" Bedford - Widmungsexemplar der Ersten Ausgabe! - "Dem Hochwohlgeborenen/ edlen Herrn/ Joghann Christian Schiffner, k.k. us.w. ./ Direktor des k.k. allgemeinen/ Krankenhauses etc etc etc///voller Zeichen der größten/ Wertschätzung, der Verfasser." - - Im Jahre 1839 war die gesetzmäßige Dienstzeit Skodas als Sekundararzt im Allgemeinen Krankenhause abgelaufen. Er stand vor der Notwendigkeit, eine Existenz zu begründen. Gesuche um Distriktsarztensstellen in Oberhollabrunn und Waidhofen a. d. Thaya, sowie um ein Kreisphysikat in Mähren waren abschlägig beschieden worden. So mußte er zufrieden sein, daß er den Posten eines Armenarztes in der Wiener Vorstadt St. Ulrich erhielt. - Skoda bezog eine kleine Wohnung innerhalb seines Rayons in der Burggasse und widmete sich neben seinen Amtsgeschäften weiteren Studien auf seiner früheren Abteilung im Krankenhause, wozu ihm sowohl sein Primararzt Ratter als auch die Krankenhausdirektion (Schiffner *) Erlaubnis gegeben hatten. Nur die große Anspruchslosigkeit Skodas machte es ihm möglich, mit der kärglichen Besoldung seinen wissenschaftlichen Arbeiten zu leben, ohne in der Privatpraxis und der alltäglichen Erwerbstätigkeit seine Kräfte aufzubrauchen. - Hauptsächlich aber verwendete er die Muße, die ihm durch den Austritt aus dem Allgemeinen Krankenhause zuteil geworden war, zur Vollendung seiner berühmten "Abhandlung über Perkussion und Auskultation". - Im Jahre 1839 erschien bei J.G.Ritter von Mösles Witwe und Braumüller, auf Löschpapier gedruckt, die eben genannte Monographie Skodas, in welcher er die gesamten Ergebnisse seiner Untersuchungen in systematischer Form vortrug. Der Kliniker Wunderlich nennt es 1856 "ein Buch, dessen gleichen an Klassizität die deutsche medizinische Literatur schon lange nicht mehr gesehen hatte". Alles bisher Bestandene war darin schöpferisch aufgenommen und neu verwertet, in schmuckloser, knapper Form, mit strengster Objektivität dargestellt. - Es ist nicht unsere Aufgabe, eine Analyse des ganzen Werkes zu geben, wir wollen nur einige Hauptpunkte hervorheben. Der eine ist die Schaffung einer auf physikalische Grundlagen gestellten Einteilung der Schallerscheinungen an Stelle der spezifischen Schälle für einzelne Organe und einzelne Krankheiten. Wie es Skoda schon früher für die Perkussionserscheinungen getan hatte, war hier dieses Prinzip auch für die Auskultation durchgeführt. - "Laennec und seine Schüler waren bestrebt gewesen, mit Hilfe des Beklopfens und Behorchens der Wände des Körpers Zeichen aufzufinden, die ohne weiteres bestimmte Krankheiten kenntlich machen sollten, wie etwa das Zirpen die Grille, oder der Wachtelschlag die Wachtel anzeigt. Das Tuberkelknacken sollte die Tuberkeln der Lunge verraten, das Knisterrasseln den Beginn oder die Lösung der Lungenentzündung, das Reibegeräusch die Entzündung von Brust-oder Herzfell." (Kussmaul). Dem entsprach eine reiche, aber unklare und subjektiv gefärbte Terminologie, die schon Laennecs nächste Umgebung, z. B. Andral, nicht befriedigte. Skoda zeigte, daß die veränderten Schallerscheinungen nichts anderes erweisen, als ein verändertes physikalisches Verhalten der Organe, von denen sie ausgehen. Welchen Krankheiten dieses physikalische Verhalten entspricht, das ist Aufgabe einer besonderen Überlegung, die nur auf Grund pathologisch-anatomischer Kenntnisse geschehen kann. Damit war mit dem Prinzip der "pathognomonischen". das heißt, für einzelne Krankheiten charakteristischen, Zeichen gebrochen und ein neues diagnostisches Prinzip gegeben, das zu einer völligen Umgestaltung der Diagnostik führte. - Es tut der Bedeutung Skodas keinen Abbruch, wenn man darauf hinweist, daß diese Auffassung der Schallerscheinungen .
