        Pathologische Untersuchungen - Von den Miasmen und Contagien und von den misamatisch-contagiösen Krankheiten.

      - Berlin, Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1840, 8°, VI, 274 pp., (2 pp.) Verlagsanzeigen, Halbledereinband der Zeit mit reichlicher Rückenvergoldung; Rücken neu unterlegt, St.a.Tit.; mit eigenhändiger Widmung des Verfassers. Sehr seltene erste Ausgabe mit eigenhändiger Widmung "Herrn Ober Stasbsarzt u. Doctor Grimm . vom Verfasser" auf dem Vorsatzblatt und dem Stempel der "KÖN. PR. MED. CHIR. Frid. Wihl. Institut" auf dem Titelblatt. - Jacob Henle (1809-1885) leitet mit seinen "Pathologischen Untersuchungen" eine neue Etappe in der Lehre von den Infektionskrankheiten ein. Der erste Abschnitt dieses Buches enthält die klassische Abhandlung "von den Miasmen und Contagien (pp.1-87)". Das Kontagium, der Ansteckungsstoff, muß aus Lebewesen bestehen, ähnlich denen der Hefe und der Pilze. Ausgangspunkt dieser Erkenntnis bilden die Forschung auf dem Gebiet der Gärung. -- Henles Arbeit ist ein genialer Entwurf. Seine Reflextionen sind zwingend. Die Theorie des "contagium vivum" wurde später von Robert Koch, Henles Schüler, glänzend bestätigt. -- Aber Henle konnte 1840 die Lebewesen, die er annahm, nicht zeigen, und man glaubte nur noch, was man sah. So blieb diese geistvolle Arbeit seinen Zeitgenossen nur eine Spekulation. - - "The significance of Henle's book lies in its long opening essay 'Von den Miasmen und Contagien,' in which Henle formulated, on the basis of deductive reasoning, his conviction that living organisms were the cause of contagious and infectious diseases. Drawing upon a wide body of work performed by other researchers on the origin of infectious diseases, such as Bassi's recent demonstration of the parasitical nature of muscardine disease of silkworms, Henle argued that infectious agents had to be organic in nature, since they appeared to multiply from the moment of entering the body (a statement supported by the fact that a certain period of incubation usually precedes the outbreak of disease), and only organic life has the property of growth. The fact that infectious agents could be destroyed by heat and disinfectants also suggested their animate nature. Henle assumed that each infectious disease had its own etiology, but realized that such views would be difficult to prove; he therefore proposed that an agent constantly found in association with a particular disease be isolated and tested in its isolated state to see whether it could produce the disease. 'This approach to the proof of the germ theory Henle communicated to his pupil Robert Koch and was, forty years later, to become one of the cornerstones of classical bacteriology under the name of "Koch's postulates" ' Foster - "He laid down postulates on the aetiological relation of microbes to disease which became fundamentals of bacteriology."

        Cargo of Brig. Leander from Rio to Marseilles 1836. Copies and papers relating thereto. Rio de Janeiro, July 1840

      1840. Manuscript. Very good. Tall quarto (approx. 12.5" x 8"). [28] pages of hand written text. [14] pages of blank pages. Stitched wraps with written title on front cover. Signed J. Birckhead at bottom of title page. Upper right corner is chip front cover (no loss of content). Handwriting and condition of paper is very good. This narrative covers the transactions and events of the ship "Leander" in 1836 including a controversial business arrangement. This narrative documents the 1836 voyage of the brig. "Leander" under Captain Richardson, to Rio for a cargo of Coffee, then to Marseilles, France, where it was consigned to Rabaud Brothers. Andrew Belknap was their agent. Beginning May 10, 1836 the letters detail financing, shipping, receiving and disposition of cargo. The ship "Leander" (A 212 ton brig.) carried flour and sugar to Rio. Parker (agent for Birckhead & Co.) shipped ice aboard the ship, paying port charges in exchange for freight costs, and Richardson shipped sperm candles, to be sold by their agent in Rio. Further letters cover cost and logistical concerns for shipping and receiving 500,000 pounds of coffee. Leander departed Boston on May 20, and a detailed invoice and bill of lading for the coffee was forwarded to Rabaud Brothers on July 10, along with a note stating that they had drawn 12,000 pounds sterling from their British agent to finance the venture. The "Leander" and her cargo of coffee departed Rio on July 20, but it turned out the 12,000 pounds sterling was not enough to cover the expense. A second, smaller invoice was issued. The merchants offered ship owner Richardson the option of assuming debt as an investment, and they assured him the profits from the sale of the sperm candles would be forwarded in due time. However, the Leander ran into trouble and the cargo was lost. The letter dated September 25, 1838, makes it apparent that Parker and Birckhead failed to pay their shares. More letters follow from Belknap and Rabaud Bros., demanding payment of 18,244.20 francs from Birckhead & Co. Birckhead claimed they never saw the bill and that the investment was made by Parker.

        View of the the Country round Hobart Town in Van Dieman's Land; reduced on zinc by G. Scharf from a drawing by Lycett in the collection of Professor Buckland at Oxford

      Charles Hullmandel, London 1840 - Lithograph on paper, 225 x 827 mm.; mounted, and in a handsome nineteenth century frame. A rare and most attractive panorama of Hobart, prepared from a drawing by the famous convict artist Joseph Lycett and possibly based on earlier drawings by G. W. Evans, the deputy surveyor. Joseph Lycett (c.1775-1828) was convicted of larceny and transported to New South Wales for 14 years, arriving on the General Hewitt in 1814. He had been trained as a portrait and miniature painter in Staffordshire, so his services as a professional artist were much in demand in the early years of the colony.Soon after arrival Lycett started working for the Sydney publisher and print maker Absalom West, and was then appointed artist to Major-General Macquarie, Governor of New South Wales. Impressed with Lycett's talents, Macquarie sent three of his drawings to Earl Bathurst, Secretary for the Colonies, who soon after granted a pardon to the artist. Lycett left Sydney in 1822 and whilst living in London produced most of the Australian subjects for which he is now celebrated.This fine lithograph is based on an original drawing and was a commission by Professor Buckland, an Oxford academic and a geologist and palaeontologist. "A letter dated 17 January 1840 from Professor Buckland to the botanist Robert Brown confirms both the date and his ownership of the drawing: 'Scharf is drawing for me on zinc a reduction of my large drawing by Lycett of Hobart Town & I am anxious to get the trees correct. I will thank you to call at 14 Francis Street, Tottenham Court Road - where the drawing now is and give a word or 2 of advice'." (McPhee, Joseph Lycett, p. 271)The lithographer of the print, George Scharf, had studied lithography in Germany before enlisting in the British Army. Later he worked in London with several lithographic publishers including Rudolph Ackermann and Charles Hullmandel. Hullmandel, who printed this panorama, had his own lithographic press: "Hullmandel's refinement of the lithographic process achieved greater subtlety and graduations of tone, as well as the ability to create a soft wash of colour" (McPhee).This fine panoramic view of Hobart is a superbly executed and beautiful lithograph; rare in any form, this is an example of the state with the artist's name reading "Lycet" and "Profefsor" misspelled. In remarkably good condition it is in a handsome nineteenth-century timber frame. Crease to the upper left hand side.

        Eigenh. Brief mit U. München, 14. X. 1840.

      1840. 1¾ SS. auf Doppelblatt. 4to. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief). An den Sänger Ludwig Cramolini (1805-1884) in Stettin: "Ich beeile mich Deinen lieben Brief, den ich mit wärmster Theilnahme durchlese, umgehend zu beantworten. Leider ist in Deiner Angelegenheit für den Augenblick nichts zu thun, da weder S. M. der König noch unser Intendant gegenwärtig hier sind! Ich werde aber heute noch an den Intendanten schreiben, der sich gegenwärtig in Leipzig aufhält, und ihm die Berücksichtigung Deines Wunsches auf das Angelegentlichste ans Herz legen. Daß sich unserem gemeinsamen Wunsche bedeutende Schwierigkeiten entgegen stellen, kann ich nicht leugnen; die Fächer der Tenoristen sind besetzt und S. M. der König werden noch nicht vergessen haben, daß Du ein früheres, abgeschlossenes Engagement zurückgewiesen oder vielmehr nicht angetreten hast! Indeß werde ich alles aufbieten, die Realisierung unserer gemeinschaftlichen Interessen zu erreichen, da ich mich unendlich freuen würde Dich wieder zu sehen und recht Vieles von der guten alten Zeit plaudern zu können. Sehr angenehm wird es mir seyn, wenn Du mir das besprochene Opernbuch schicken willst! Sagt es meiner Individualität zu, so werde ich mich wohl mit dem Dichter vereinigen können [...]". - Franz Lachner war seit 1823 in Wien. 1827 wurde er Vizekapellmeister, 1828 Erster Kapellmeister am Kärntnertortheater; von 1836 bis 1865 war er Hofkapellmeister an der Münchner Hofoper und Leiter der Musikalischen Akademie. - Bl. 2 mit kleinem Ausriß durch Siegelbruch. - Selten.

        The Jigama River near Pambula

      Exeter: W.Spreat, c., 1840. Handcoloured lithograph, 165 x 260 mm., fine. A fine Australian view from a series of tinted lithographic plates (published as Sketches in Australia) of Sydney and Harbour areas, mountains and southern coastal regions of New South Wales, "drawn from nature" by Captain Westmacott.Jigama River is now known as Pambula River which is on the South Coast of New South Wales. The river was first explored by Europeans in 1797 when George Bass put in to escape from a gale on his way down the coast. Bass noted the beauty of the place in his diary.The village developed to serve the early settlers in the locality. Some of the earliest European settlers, the Imlay brothers, pioneers and landowners in the district established their station on the banks of the Pambula River in the 1830s.Their land was bought by the Walker brothers in the early 1840s.Little is known of Westmacott, except that he was a captain in the 4th (King's Own) Regiment, and that he spent the early 1840s in Australia. His published views represent the last in the chronology of work by military or naval officers in the romantic landscape tradition of the early 19th century.

        AUTOGRAPH LETTER TO SIR HENRY RAWLINSON SIGNED BY BRITISH INDIA ARMY OFFICER SIR HENRY MONTGOMERY LAWRENCE.

      Ferozepoor [i.e. Ferozepur], India: August 20th, 1840. - - Letter penned in black ink & filling both sides of a 13-1/8 inch high by 8-1/4 inch wide sheet of cream-colored paper. Signed "H M Lawrence". A strip of mounting tape is attached to the left edge of the recto with a light glue stain to part of the right edge. There is a tiny tear to the bottom edge. On the verso, glue-staining runs down the left edge & 2 small pieces of tape are glued to the body of the letter, slightly affecting 2 letters of the text. Good. A note in an early hand at the foot of the letter indicates that it was written to Major Rawlinson. A small newspaper cutting is mounted below the signature describing a tablet erected in memory of Lawrence.Lawrence advises poor Rawlinson on the complicated procedure for getting reimbursements from the government, a process which must be followed exactly or the money will not be forthcoming: "Each treasury you draw on must have its own set of numbers; thus No. 1 Ferozepoor, No. 1 Pershawar, No. 1 Caubul, No. 1 Loudiana [i.e. Ludhiana] may all be of the same date, 4th Augt. for instance, & the next bills drawn on each of those places no matter on what date must each be No. 2 and so on."Sir Henry Montgomery Lawrence [1806-1857] was a British soldier and statesman in India, who died in the Siege of Lucknow during the Indian Rebellion. Critically wounded, he is supposed to have said to those around him: "Put on my tomb only this: Here lies Henry Lawrence who tried to do his duty."Sir Henry Rawlinson [1810-1895] was an English diplomat and orientalist, sometimes referred to as the "Father of Assyriology".
