        Malacologie Méditerranéenne et littorale, ou description des mollusques qui vivent dans la Méditerranée ou sur le continent de l'Italie, ainsi que des coquilles qui se trouvent dans les terrains tertiaires Italiens, avec des observations sur leur anatomie, leurs moeurs, leur analogie et leur gisement. Ouvrage servant de faune malacologique Italienne et de complément a la Conchiologia fossile subapennica de Brocchi.

      Bruxelles, M. Hayez, 1840. Large 4to (29.1 x 22.0 cm). 173 pp., 12 engraved plates of which six finely hand-coloured (double suite). Contemporary blue limp leather, blue printed label with hand-written title on front wrapper.= Very rare and important publication on Mediterranean molluscs by the Belgian malacologist François Joseph Cantraine (1801-1863), with the plates in double suite, hand-coloured, and plain. With the descriptions of new species. The work is particularly important for its fine illustrations of living animals and shells of often new or poorly known species (e.g. Pteropoda and Nudibranchia, but also Helicidae). Even the smaller species are figured in great detail. We have never seen a double suite copy before. Usually this work is dated as from 1841, perhaps because volume 13 of the Mémoires of the Académie royale in Brussels were published in that year. This, however, is an offprint, dated 1840, and there is no reason to doubt that it was published in that year. Some plate references, e.g. to plate 13, are incorrect. Lacks the single page "Table alphabetique". Spine cover slightly chipped, cancellation stamp over old stamp on title page, some light, marginal spots to a few plates. Colouring very good. Caprotti, p. 15; Not in Nissen.

Early printing of the sets but not the first as per Garside and Hughes' "James Hogg's Tales and Sketches and the Glasgow Number Trade."

Former owner's contemporary boar's head bookplates on all pastedowns. Seven numbered pages of ads at rear volume of Tales Vol. VI not present; otherwise textually complete. Some foxing to plates, a few hinges starting. Vol. I of Tales has slight splitting of cloth near tail. Tissue guards appear to all be present.

        Geka kihai zufu [trans.: Illustrations of Surgical Cases]

      81 woodcut illus., all finely colored by hand and 42 folding flaps. 60 folding leaves. 8vo, later wrappers (rather wormed, carefully & sensitively repaired), new stitching. Japan: 1840. First edition of this extremely rare and important book in the history of anesthesiology and surgery; this work contains what we believe are the oldest printed illustrations of surgery under general anesthesia and the first illustrations of an anesthesiologist. These illustrations show resection of a testicular tumor and intrauterine hematoma. A caption (written in Chinese) in each illustration clearly states surgery was performed under general anesthesia using mafutsuto. Seishu Hanaoka was the world's first surgeon on record to successfully perform surgery under general anesthesia. On 13 October 1804, Hanaoka successfully operated on Aiya Kan, a 60-year-old woman, to remove breast cancer under Mafutsusan general anesthesia. This surgery is the world's earliest known verified case of surgery under anesthesia. Following the success of his surgeries under anesthesia, Hanaoka became well-known throughout Japan. He established a private medical school where he trained more than 1000 students, including Keishu Kamada (1794-1854). Because Hanaoka did not write any books, the writings of Kamada are important sources for investigating his master's techniques of anesthesiology. Following five years of study with Hanaoka, Gendai returned to his native island of Shikoku in southwestern Japan, where he became known as Japan's best surgeon. He performed many plastic, orthopedic, and pediatric surgical procedures and was especially regarded for treating breast cancer. "Gendai Kamada was an outstanding pupil of Seishu Hanaoka, and from the perspective of the history of anesthesiology, three of his achievements had a global impact… "The first achievement was writing of Mafutsuto-ron in 1839. Mafutsuto-ron gives detailed descriptions of the indications and contraindications for anesthesia, anesthetic procedures using Mafutsuto, signs of adequate depth of anesthesia with Mafutsuto, methods of intraoperative and postoperative anesthetic management, and other practices drawn from clinical experience. In 1839, when Mafutsuto-ron was written, no technique for using general anesthesia had been developed in Europe or the United States. In the West, the textbook of general anesthesia was first described by Snow in 1847. Thus, Mafutsuto-ron is the first existing textbook of clinical anesthesiology in the world… "Gendai's second achievement was to create one of the oldest illustrations of surgery under general anesthesia in the world. These illustrations are included in Gekakihai-zufu (Illustrations of Surgical Cases), a casebook of surgical treatment he published in 1840. This casebook consists of a preface, a table of consequences, cases, and 65 illustrations [they mean case histories]. It explains the pathology of diseases and therapeutic procedures, such as resection of tumors and repair after trauma, in concise classical Chinese. Although most of the illustrations in this casebook depict patients undergoing surgery, two illustrations depict an entire surgical operation, showing the patient and surgeons together. The latter illustrations clearly depict the conditions in which general anesthesia with Mafutsuto was administered at the time. These two illustrations, showing how surgery was performed under general anesthesia in the 1830s, seem to be among the oldest illustrations of general anesthesia in the world… "Gendai's third great achievement was to train the world's second anesthesiologist. Gendai and Seishu were not anesthesiologists, because they performed surgery on the patients they anesthetized. However, Gendai recognized the importance of anesthesiologists. The two illustrations in Gekakihai-zufu each show a physician taking the pulse of a patient while observing his whole body. Such physicians were responsible for administering anesthesia and observing the general condition of the patient. Because the physicians in these two illustrations wore similar clothes and have close-cropped heads, they appear to be two depictions of the same individual. Because Gendai was performing the surgery, this physician is assumed to be Gensei Matsuoka, who was a pupil of Gendai and a physician with a particular talent for anesthesia. Gensei played a critical role in Gendai's writings. In the 1830s, Gendai performed various surgical procedures with Gensei as the anesthesiologist."-Dote et al., "Two Japanese Pioneers in Anesthesiology: Seishu Hanaoka and Gendai Kamada" in Journal of Anesthesia History, Vol. 3 (2017), pp. 19-23. The illustrations in this work are remarkable. There are 81 vividly handcolored woodcuts depicting surgical operations. Even more remarkably, there are 42 folding flaps over the woodcuts, showing the "before" and "after" of surgical procedures. Kamada provides in the text the symptoms, treatments, descriptions of each patient, and length of illness for all 65 case histories. This book is of the utmost rarity; there is no copy outside of Japan and we can only locate two copies in Japan (Kyushu University and Iwasaki Bunko in Tokyo).

        Physiologie du système nerveux ou recherches et expériences sur les diverses classes d'appareils nerveux, les mouvemens, la voix, la parole, les sens, et les facultés intellectuelles

      Paris, J.-B. Baillière, 1840, in-8, 2 vol, VI-640 + [4]-644 pp, 4pl, demi-veau violine, dos à nerfs orné d'un large fer romantique, Première édition française, traduite de l'allemand, sur la troisième édition. Cet ouvrage forme la partie la plus considérable du fameux traité de Physiologie de Müller (Handbuch der Physiologie des Menschen für Vorlesungen, Coblenz, Hölscher, 1834-40). Il a été ajouté au chapitre de la voix humaine, la version d'un opuscule que M. Müller venait alors de publier séparément, sur la compensation des forces physiques dans l'organe de l'homme (Ueber die Compensation der physischen Kroefte am menschlichen Stimmorgen, Berlin, 1839, avec 4 planches). Le physiologiste allemand Johannes Peter Müller (1874-1955) considéré généralement comme le père de la physiologie moderne, établit ici que la perception se produit par des organes sensoriels recevant des stimuli. Il fait partie des physiologistes qui, à partir de l'étude des sensations, sont à l'origine de la psychophysique dont procède la psychologie expérimentale. Bel exemplaire, malgré quelques rousseurs, de cet ouvrage rare. Coiffes supérieures usées.
