Rare First Edition. This copy shows all signs of the first Issue, it has all three part titles for "Erster Band erste Abtheilung", "Erster Band zweite Abtheilung", and Erster Band dritte Abtheilung", with the general title page for "Erster Band ", dated 1846, bound before part title of "Dritte Abtheilung" and the mispaginantion of page 569 with "596". - Not in Normann, Waller, Osler, Courville ! - - "This, the first systematic book on neurology, well documented with full references to the literature, deals in admirable fashion with such disorders as neuritis, causalgia, ciliary neuralgia, facial neuralgia, sciatica, neuromas, chorea, tetany, epilepsy and facial paralysis. Romberg's discussion of tabes dorsalis, lucid in clinical details and brilliant in his surmise as to the site of the initial pathological changes, contains the classic remark that ataxics cannot stand with their eyes shut (Romberg's sign) . . . (ed. 1, p. 795)" Haymaker & Schiller, Founders of Neurology, p. 508. - - "We can regard him as the first clinical neurologist" Spillane, Doctrine of the Nerves, p. 289; 279-89). - - "The first man to bring order and system to neurology was Moritz Heinrich Romberg (1795-1873), professor of pathology and director of the University Hospital in Berlin. (...)Romberg's work culminated in his classic text "Lehrbuch der Nerverkankheiten des Menschen", which was the first systematic treatise in neurology and a milestone in the development of clinical neurology. (...) Romberg accepted the difference between the function of the anterior and posterior roots of the spinal cord und used this distinction in motor and sensory nerves as a basis for the division of his textbook into two sections, "Neuroses of Sensibility" and "Neurosis of Motility". The first section describes abnormal sensory function - including pain, hyperesthesia and anesthesia - affecting various parts of the body; the second section on motor disorders is separated into spasm, tremor and paralysis, and includes other motor symptoms that occur in neurological disease. Although localization of function and disease in the nervous system was not to be clarified for another twenty or thirty years, Romberg had made a significant step in this direction from the old classification of neurological disorders into merly palsy, apoplexy and epilepsy that had generally existed from Hippocrates to Cooke. - In Romberg's "sensory" section there is a description of branchial and sciatic neuritis, peripheral neuritis and causalgia, neuromas, ciliary neuralgia, facial neuralgia, various forms of headache and other conditions recognized today. Romberg also described position sense, pointing out that Bell (1826) first directed attention to this, and saying of Bell that "his observations are as ingenious as they are conclusive". (...)The section on motor diseases contains a long description of muscular spasms, particularly those associated with breathing and talking, as well as presentations of chorea, tetanus, epilepsy, facial paralysis and his classic elucidation of tabes doralis. He recognized tabes as a distinct clinical entity and appropriated for it the designation tabes dorsalis. Not only did Romberg note the insecurity of stance and gait, but he also recognized the occurrence of amblyopia; he even recorded that when the optic nerve is not involved, there is "a change of the pupils of one or both eyes, consisting in contraction with loss of motion". L.C. McHenry: Garrison's History of Neurology 278.ff." - Romberg inaugurated the modern era in the study of diseases of the nervous system. His 'Lehrbuch' is the first formal treatise in this field. - - Garrison-Morton No.4528

        To Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Victoria, This Map of the World on Mercator's Projection is most respectfully dedicated .

      Published by J. and C. Walker . and William Colling Hobson, London 1840 - Large engraved case map, full period hand coloring, dissected and linen-backed as issued. The map with insets of both poles and surrounded by descriptive panels of text. With early manuscript additions in the Arctic. Housed in the original green cloth case. Stunning large format case map of the World, featuring Texas as a Republic: with beautiful period hand coloring The surrounding panels of text provide an extraordinary amount of information on the countries of the world: population, size of countries, chief productions, important towns and cities, values of imports and exports, national debt, number of naval vessels and distances surround the map of the world. The map itself is highly detailed for a world map, and includes the very latest of the geographic discoveries of its time, particularly along the northwest coast of America and in the Arctic. Indeed, an early owner has furthered this with manuscript ink additions, charting discoveries made by Robert McClure on his first navigation of the northwest passage in 1850-54. Perhaps the most interesting mapping, however, is the bold depiction of Texas as a Republic, here distinctly colored in purple and with a separate entry in the text surround listing its population as 38,000. A wonderful example of a rare and desirable case map of the world. Rumsey 3820. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Entwurf für eine farbige Arbeit, ein Aquarell oder ein Gemälde. Provenienz: Aus dem Künstlernachlaß. Vergleichsliteratur: Fr.W. Alexander: Johann Georg Meyer von Bremen. Das Lebensbild eines deutschen Genremalers. Leipzig, E.A. Seemann, 1910, Abb. 12 und 13. Diese beiden Abbildungen zeigen vergleichbare Architekturskizzen aus Bacharach und Wellmich bei St. Goarshausen.. Georg Meyer von Bremen ging 1833 im Alter von 20 Jahren nach Düsseldorf, um an einer der geachtesten Kunstakademien des Landes zu studieren. Er wurde hier erst Schüler des Nazareners J. Wintergerst (1783-1867) und des Historienmalers K.F. Sohn (1805-1867), dann besuchte er die Meisterklasse wohl unter der Leitung des Akademiedirektors W. von Schadow (1788-1862). Seit 1841 war er in Düsseldorf als freischaffender Maler tätig. 1848 war er Gründungsmitglied des "Künstler-Verein Malkasten". Studienreisen durch Deutschland (Hessen und Bayern), nach Berchtesgaden, in das Salzkammergut und der Schweiz brachten die Hinwendung zu volkstümlichen Genrebildern, vor allem gemütvolle Familiendarstellungen und Szenen aus dem Kinderleben. Weitere Reisen führten ihn nach Brüssel und Antwerpen. 1850 erhielt er die Kleine Goldene Medaille. 1852 siedelte er nach Berlin über, wo er es nach wenigen Jahren zu großem, auch internationalem Erfolg brachte, vor allem bei den in die USA emigrierenden deutschen Auswanderern; zu seinen prominentesten Kunden zählten das russische Kaiserhaus und die preußische Königsfamilie. Zwei Jahre nach dem Umzug wurde er zum Professor an die Berliner Akademie berufen. 1855 wurde ihm der belgische Leopoldsorden überreicht, 1857 wurde er Mitglied der Academie des Arts in Amsterdam. Werke Meyer von Bremens besitzen u.a. das Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam, das Metropolitan Museum New York, die Nationalgalerie Berlin, die Kunsthalle Bremen und das Stadtmuseum Danzig.

        "Wien von Galizinberg". Mittig bezeichnet und links unten signiert "Wigand".

      Wien um 1840.. Bildausschnitt ca. 5,8 x 8,4 cm, Blattgröße ca. 8 x 10,5 cm.. Vgl. Thieme-B. XXXV, 549 und Fuchs, Die österr. Maler des 19. Jhdts., K 131.- Blick vom Gallitzinberg, Wien-Ottakring, auf Wien, im Vordergrund eine Kutsche.- Markante und für Wigand typische Arbeit. Wigand (1771-1846) malte überwiegend Altwiener Miniaturveduten mit gut charakterisierter winziger Staffage. "... Seine Art, Pferde darzustellen, ist für ihn außerordentlich charakteristisch. Er unterhielt eine Werkstatt, die auf Ansichten aus Wien und seiner Umgebung spezialisiert war und Bildchen für Kassetten, Briefbeschwerer, Lampenschirme und ähnliches lieferte..." (Fuchs). "... sein Studium bei Johann Christian und Friedrich August Brand sowie später in der Klasse für Historienmalerei von Heinrich Füger gilt als gesichert. Schon bald wandte er sein gesamtes Interesse der feinen und delikaten Arbeit an Bild-Miniaturen zu. Seine Motive suchte er in den Ansichten seiner Heimatstadt, später auch in besonderen historischen Gegebenheiten oder Festen. Seine Arbeit besticht durch das sich im Laufe seiner Entwicklung verändernde, faszinierende Kolorit und durch seine exakte Linienführung, die die Betrachtung - auch mit dem Vergrößerungsglas - zur besonderen Freude werden lässt. Wigands große Leistung besteht nicht in bloßer Verkleinerung einer Komposition, sondern in der gleichzeitigen Umsetzung... " (Prof. Christian Scheed).

        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

      London: Charles Hullmandel, 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 (it is generally believed that Lycett did not visit Tasmania during his time in Australia, despite the large number of Tasmanian views in his famous Views in Australia). Lycett had arrived in New South Wales as a convict in 1814. Trained as a portrait and miniature painter in Staffordshire, his services as a professional artist were much in demand in the early years of the colony.Lycett was soon working for the publisher Absalom West. He was then appointed artist to Major-General Macquarie, the governor of New South Wales. Impressed with Lycett's talents, Macquarie sent three of his drawings to Earl Bathurst, Secretary of the Colonies who, it is supposed in payment, granted a pardon to the artist. Little is known of the artist's life after leaving Australia.Based on a drawing in his possession, this rare work was commissioned 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, page 271)The lithographer 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, Joseph Lycett, page 271).This fine panoramic view of Hobart is a superbly executed and beautiful lithograph, rare in any form, is an example of the state with the artist's name reading "Lycet" and "Profefsor" misspelled. Apart from a crease to the upper left hand side it is in remarkably good condition in a handsome nineteenth century timber frame.

        Chashitsu okoshi-ezu. [Pop-up Japanese Tea-Houses]

      1840. |~||~|CHANOYU TEA HOUSES TANSAI, Nobutatsu. Chashitsu okoshi-ezu. [Pop-up Japanese Tea-Houses]. A Complete set of 65 architectural models of chashitsu, Japanese tea-houses, yoritsuki and koshikake (waiting huts and roofed arbors), plus other "out-buildings" associated with the tea ceremony. Each model on washi or kozo construction paper, with ample information supplying design details, dimensions, textures and materials used, written in black ink in the precise, artistic hand of Tansai Nobutatsu. Each model with his artist's stamp. Housed in two-tier contemporary Japanese wooden box. Manuscript table of contents pasted to inside of the lid. No Date or place, but Kyoto, 1820-40s. |~||~||~||~||~| Exceptionally Rare, complete set of Japanese architectural models of tea-houses (chashitsu) associated with the tea ceremony (chanoyu). These models with manuscript annotations date from the first half of the nineteenth century, probably constructed in Kyoto. This rare survival consists of 65 separate models of folding drawings, called okoshi-ezu, "pop-up" drawings which unfold to create a three dimensional structure. The okoshi-ezu are attached to a large plan representing the floor; the particular tea-house is identified and the stamp of the artist Tansai Nobutatsu appears on this "platform" plan. Onto the platform plan are floor patterns drawn in black ink revealing strict tatami-mat arrangements. The folding flaps of exterior walls, interior walls, ceilings, alcoves, passage-ways, etc., are attached by folding hinges to the platform. These folding flaps possess detailed drawings on both sides of the paper, delineating interior decor, highly refined window structures, tokonoma details, shoji windows or interior shoji walls, holes for windows and openings. Elements such as benches, shelves, shutters, awnings, etc. are secondary folding structures attached to the folding walls. Descriptive Japanese text identifies the structural dimensions, spatial measurements and original materials and textures used. Special attention is paid to bamboo, reeds, vines, and support timbers. The entire structure is flat when the platform plan in unfolded and the tea-house is erected by folding up the walls and attaching them together with the supplied tabs and slots. "There is some disagreement among scholars as to whether okoshi-ezu were used during design or simply served to record existing buildings. The difficulty is that although the okoshi-ezu method seems to have originated early in the Edo period - exactly when or how is not clear - the oldest surviving examples date from the latter part of the Edo period [i.e. 1800-1868]" (Andrew Barrie, Okoshi-ezu: Speculations on thinness, footnote #1). The set includes models of tea houses from the 13th century through the 19th century, many designed by the great names in the history of chanoyu from the inception of the Japanese tea ceremony: Sen-no-Rikyu (1522-1591), Takeno Joo (1502-1555), Genpaku Sotan (1578-1658), Koshin Sosa (1613-1672), Genso Sosa (1678-1730), all iemoto of the Omotesenke Tea School, as well as Edo tea masters such as Kawakami Fuhaku (1716-1807). The first models are of tea-houses designed by Sen no Rikyu, depicting his tearooms of 4.5 jo, 2.5 jo, 1.5 jo, (each "jo" represents the size of one tatami mat - 1.653 square meters or 3.13 x 6.27 feet). There are also models of the famous tea-houses at Fushin-an, the headquarters of the Omotesenke tea-school in Kyoto and of Myoki-an, the Zen temple of the Rinzai sect in the Kyoto prefecture. The Taian teahouse, at Myoki-an represents one of only three tea houses in Japan designated as a National Treasure. Purportedly designed by Sen no Rikyu, it is the oldest surviving Japanese tea-house. Models #45 to 62 include the various shelving for chanoyu utensils in the mizuya or katte kitchen area to the rear of a tea house, plus loose tables, screens, several koshikake or waiting houses, out buildings, bamboo fences, gates, etc. We have been able to locate no surviving Okoshi-ezu models for tea-houses before the nineteenth century. The National Diet Library in Tokyo has a similar set of model tea-houses by Tansai Nobutatsu with 46 plates. The Peabody Essex Museum has a similar set by the same artist consisting of 90 plates housed in two wooden boxes. Peabody Essex dates their set to the 1820. Both of these sets come with similar manuscript lists of the plates pasted onto the inside cover of the wooden boxes. It appears that Tansai Nobutatsu (dates unknown) was either a tea-master himself or perhaps an architect with intimate knowledge of chanoyu. Condition: The 65 models have survived in a very fine state of preservation, especially since they fold flat but were designed to be manipulated and folded into 3 dimensional structures. There is some minor worming to several of the models, mostly however on the plan. The contemporary Japanese wooden box in near-fine condition. See: S.

Some dustsoiling but in very good state of preservation, bound into a heavy binding of black half roan over marbled wood boards, loose, spine very worn. [bound with], Nelson Debating Club, Newcastle Upon Tyne. Rules.> n.p., n.d. but evidently Newcastle-upon-Tyne, ca. 1844. large sheet of paper mounted on linen (73 x 40 cms), the 17 Rules> in red and black ink in a calligraphic hand, the 15 members' signatures in ink at foot, in fine state of preservation. A charming pair of documents, the second apparently postdating the first as indicated by revisions to and additions to the rules. These rules included the usual administrative conditions, officers of the Club, subscriptions and procedures. One significant change between the first and second versions involved the crucial choice of a subject for debate. The version one rule was that 'A subject shall be given every week by the chairman or his substitute to be debated on at the next ensuing meeting, notice of which subject shall be sent to members not present'. This was changed to something rather more collegiate: 'Each member shall be at liberty to enter any subject for discussion into a book to be kept for that purpose and that the committee choose from them the subject to be discussed'. A further notable change affected matters of religion and politics. In the first version Rules> it was agreed that 'on account of the conscientious difference of opinion on the subject of religion that subject shall never be debated'. But the draconian regulation in the second version of the Rules> added even tougher censorship: 'On account of the conscientious difference of opinion on the subject of religion and of the height to which party spirit runs on the subject of politics, those subjects shall never be discussed'. It might be surmised that the seven identified resignations and the overall reduction in the number of members was exacerbated by the prohibition on debates on religion and politics. Both, after all, were contentious and therefore highly debateable subjects. The club met weekly (Wednesdays at 7 pm) at the Freemasons Lodge in Nelson Street. Members, whose signatures are appended to each document, included several names recognisable in the public life of the city. (A recent owner of the manuscripts has added several notes in pencil identifying many of the members).

        Riche ou pauvre Exposition succincte des causes et des effets de la distribution actuelle des richesses sociales

      Paris & Geneva: Librairie d'Ab. Cherbuliez et Ce,, 1840. Octavo (192 x 125 mm). Contemporary marbled boards, flat roan spine ruled and lettered gilt, sprinkled edges. Library stamp of the VSK library to title and free endpaper. Board edges lightly rubbed; a crisp, clean copy. First edition of a work to which Karl Marx devoted an entire chapter in his Theorien über den Mehrwert (Theories of surplus value), writing that this book, together with George Ramsay's Essay on the distribution of wealth, is the only one to have made the distinction (of great importance to Marx) between "constant" and "variable" capital (i.e. wage and non-wage capital). As Marx saw it: "It is an incontrovertible fact that, as capitalist production develops, the portion of capital invested in machinery and raw materials grows, and the portion laid out in wages declines. This is the question with which both Ramsay and Cherbuliez are concerned. For us, however, the main thing is: does this fact explain the decline in the rate of profit?" (Theories of surplus value, book III). In 1835 Cherbuliez, a Swiss lawyer, succeeded Rossi as professor of public law and political economy at the University of Geneva, moving to Paris in 1848, to later return to Switzerland, where he held the professorship of economics at the University of Lausanne before Walras. In political economy he was a follower of Sismondi, with elements of Ricardo, steadfastly conservative and antisocialist. Admired by Mill, Cossa, and Cairnes, his Précis de la science économique et ses practicales applications, a masterpiece of erudition, is described by Schumpeter as "one of the best textbooks of 'classic' economics" (R. F. Hébert in The New Palgrave).
