        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 .

        Voices of the Night -- INSCRIBED

      Cambridge, MA: John Owen, 1839 - Inscribed by the author "Mrs. Charles Amory, from the author, with his regards and best wishes, December 25, 1839." The first edition of the author's first book of poems, printed in an edition of only 900 copies. BAL 12065. Longfellow met Amory (1808-1898) in 1829, when both were students at Gottingen. They renewed the acquaintance in 1836 when both found themselves at Harvard, where Longfellow had been appointed as a professor and Amory was studying medicine. In his journal for 1838, the poet referred to his friend as "my usual resource" for dinner. With three other companions, including the future senator Charles Sumner, the two formed a small circle known as "The Five of Clubs." In 1841, Longfellow would allude to Amory and two other friends with the same surname in his poem "To the River Charles": "thy name reminds me / Of three friends, all true and tried, / And that name, like magic binds me / Closer, closer to thy side." His wife, Martha Babcock Greene Amory (1812-1880) was the granddaughter of John Singleton Copley, and his first biographer. She married Amory in 1832, and chronicled their wedding journey - a grand tour of Europe -- in detailed letters published by D. B. Updike in two volumes in 1922. Small pencil inscription to second blank: "Morris Carter from S.G.D." S.G.D. is Susan Greene Dexter (1840-1903), the Amory's daughter. Carter (1877-1965), who wrote a biography of Isabella Stewart Gardner, was the first director of the Museum she founded, serving from 1924 until his retirement in 1955. An exceptional association copy with an impeccable provenance linking a number of the first families of Boston. Beautifully bound in full maroon leather decorated in gold.

        Viscount Melbourne

      London: Hodgson & Graves, 1839. Mezzotint measuring 305 x 230 mm. (plate size), fine. A beautifully executed mezzotint portrait of William Lamb, second Viscount Melbourne, after whom the capital city of Victoria was named in 1837. Although printed in 1839, at the height of Melbourne's career and while he was serving as Prime Minister of Great Britain, the mezzotint is based on a youthful portrait of the great statesman by Sir Thomas Lawrence R.A.The city of Melbourne grew from humble beginnings, when John Batman explored the Port Phillip Bay area against the express wishes of Sir Richard Bourke, Governor of New South Wales. Within two years Bourke was forced to acknowledge the rapidly growing settlement which he named in honour of Viscount Melbourne in 1837. In doing so Bourke replaced a variety of names for the fledgling settlement including Bearbrass, Bearport, Glenelg and Batmania (so called after John Batman). Largely due to the gold-rushes of the mid nineteenth-century Melbourne became one of the most prosperous and fast growing cities of the British Empire.

      London:: John W. Parker,, 1839.. First English edition.. Hardcover. Very Good+. viii, 143, (i), +16 adverts. With 10 plates, and a number of vignettes in the text. Tipped in at the front are two items of correspondence (in German) from Wyttenbach to the antiquarian James Yates: An 1837 note, thanking him for his learned works; and an 1839 letter, barely legible, with Yates' interlinear transcription (which I struggle to interpret). Both are accompanied by part of the envelopes addressed to Yates in which they came, the second still bearing its seal. At page 60, are also tipped in two illustrations which echo the type of arch illustrated in the facing plate and vignette: one, a loose sketch in brown ink, and the other a finely-done ink drawing(?) - apparently taken from the view in the vignette. Besides these, there is a note in Yates' hand at the foot of p.58, and a reference to another work on Trier on the first blank leaf. Contents very clean. 22.5x14cms, with the original yellow endpapers, in the original binding of green cloth, ruled and decorated in blind, spine titled in gilt.
