Als Minister der Äußeren an Professor Vains-Desfontaine mit Dank für die Zusendung eines Gedichtbandes. - Mit kleinen Randläsuren. In seinem Amt als Außenminister sollte Guizot, auf preußisches Betreiben, nur zwei Jahre später Karl Marx' Ausweisung aus Paris verfügen, was Letzterer im Vorwort seiner Schrift "Zur Kritik der Politischen Ökonomie" erwähnt: "Die Erforschung der [politischen Ökonomie], die ich in Paris begann, setzte ich fort zu Brüssel, wohin ich infolge eines Ausweisungsbefehls des Herrn Guizot übergewandert war" (S. 8). 1847 wurde Guizot Premierminister, trat aber bereits im Folgejahr im Zuge der Februarrevolution zurück.

      - or, A Plan for Exploring the Interior, and for Carrying on a Survey of the Whole Continent of Australia. By a Retired Officer of the Hon. East India Company's Service. Illustrated with a Map of Australia, and Five Plates. Pp. xxiv+428+[2](Supplemental note, verso blank), 5 double page plates (4 being hand-coloured aquatints), large folding map at end, appendix; modern half calf, the spine ruled in gilt around raised bands, with gilt lettered and decorated maroon leather title labels; marbled papered boards; new endpapers (retaining an earlier unidentified bookplate dated 1843), pencilled signature on verso of title page, scattered light foxing; Hurst, Chance and Co. London, 1830. First edition. F. 1379; Wantrup 117a; Abbey \i Travel 11. 574. *This copy lacks the 16 page publisher's catalogue, which according to Wantrup was present only in the 'earliest issue.' A second edition, comprising unsold sheets of the first edition with a new title page and an updated preface, was published by Smith, Elder in 1836. (This firm took over the remaining stock some time after the initial publication, and by 1833 were advertising that 'only 250 copies of this expensively got up work' were printed [see Wantrup p. 193]). 'The supreme monument to the speculative geography of the 1820s and 1830s . His eccentric plan for the survey of the interior is a monument to the fascination exerted by the vast unknown interior on contemporary Europeans. He offers detailed and elaborate advice on the preparation and conduct of his proposed expedition, suggesting the importation of elephants and camels, the construction of special craft to navigate the inland sea and so on. As well, he devotes attention to other matters relating to the future of society in Australia. Everything from the planning of towns to the establishment of a bunyip aristocracy has a place on his broad canvas' [Wantrup, pp. 192-23]. The map is an imaginative depiction of the Australian continent, including a large inland sea and 'the supposed entrance of The Great River'. The plates show scenes from Maslen's proposed exploring expedition, a plan for a township, and a design for an Australian flag. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Modern History and Condition of Egypt, its Climate, Diseases, and Capabilities; exhibited in a personal narrative of travels in that country: with an account of the proceedings of Mohammed Ali Pascha, from 1801 to 1843; interspersed with illustrations of scripture history, the fulfilment of prophecy, and the progress of civilization in the east.

      London: Smith, Elder, and Co., 1843 - 2 volumes, octavo. Original green cloth (volume 1 fine-diaper, volume 2 vertical-ribbed), spines gilt lettered and blocked with Egyptian motifs), covers with differing ornamental blind panelling, yellow coated endpapers. Spines slightly cocked and lightly sunned, inner joints of volume I cracked but sound, some foxing to plates. A very good set, with the errata slip in volume I, the cloth bindings bright and sharp-cornered. Lithograph portrait frontispieces of Mohammed Ali and Ibrahim Pasha, 12 tinted lithograph plates (8 views), one wood engraving in the text. First edition of this spirited and engaging account, illustrated with simple but appealing illustrations, lithographed by Hullmandel from Yates's own sketches. "A very interesting work by a medical man who travelled extensively in Egypt c. 1840 Yates also provides an extensive general commentary on political events in Syria, Crete and Egypt in addition to the ordinary account of his travels" (Blackmer). The Scottish doctor William Holt Yates remains a frustratingly shadowy figure. We do know that he was a member of the Royal Asiatic Society (admitted 1834) and president of both the Royal Medical and Royal Physical Societies of Edinburgh, and senior physician to the General Dispensary at Aldersgate in the City, during a time when the young David Livingstone was taking extracurricular studies there. The publication of his book was timely as there was growing interest in Egypt following the Oriental Crisis of 1840, when European powers intervened following Muhammed Ali Pasha's attempt to establish a personal empire in the Ottoman province of Egypt, subsequent to his defence of Syria from Ottoman aggression. The British and Austrian navies blockaded the Nile delta and shelled Beirut; Muhammed Ali agreed terms, ratified at the Convention of London (15 July 1840). Yates would having been travelling in Egypt hot on the heels of fellow Scot David Roberts, who visited the country in 1838-39. Well represented institutionally but decidedly uncommon commercially. Not in Abbey; Blackmer 1853; Hilmy II pp. 345-47 (also listing an abridged version of 1842 issued by Bohn, which appears to be a ghost); not in Weber (Voyages and travels in the near east during the XIX century).

Souza Leite Azevedo, Portugal's consul general in Montevideo, defends himself against charges by the government of Uruguay that he was in league with Buenos Aires, providing numerous supporting documents. Uruguay had expelled him from Montevideo.The context here is the struggles in Uruguay between the liberal Colorados, who favored the the Unitarios in Argentina, opposed to the dictator Juan Manuel de Rosas, and the conservative Blancos, representing agricultural interests in the countryside, allied to Rosas. The Blancos were led by Manuel Ceferino Oribe y Viana, president of Uruguay from 1835 to 1838, while the Colorados were led by Fructuoso Rivera, who had been president from 1830 to 1834, and became president again from 1839 to 1843. On 15 June 1838, an army led by Rivera overthrew president Oribe, who fled to Argentina. Rivera declared war on Rosas in 1839. The conflict would last 13 years and become known as the Guerra Grande. In 1843, an Argentine army overran Uruguay on Oribe's behalf, but failed to take the capital. The siege of Montevideo, which began in February 1843, would last nine years. The besieged Uruguayans called on resident foreigners for help, which led to a French and an Italian legion being formed, the latter led by the exiled Giuseppe Garibaldi.*** Not in Innocêncio.

        South Australia in 1842. By one who lived there nearly four years. Illustrated by drawings

      London, J.C. Hailes and S. Gilbert, 1843. Octavo, 32 pages plus a small folding map (205 x 156 mm), an engraving of Adelaide and 2 full-page lithographs: 'Farm of J. Barton Hack ...Echiunga [sic] Springs, Mount Barker' and two portraits on the one plate of Kertamaroo (King John) and Mogata (his wife). Later (early twentieth century?) half calf and cloth, retaining the original pale yellow front wrapper (lettered 'South Australia in 1842') and with numerous binder's blanks at the rear to make a more substantial object; covers slightly rubbed at the extremities and high spots; wrapper lightly stained and creased, with the leading edge neatly reinforced (presumably when the binding was done); first and last leaves lightly foxed, with the last one lightly marked; trifling signs of handling; a very good copy. This copy contains the armorial bookplate of Henry Percival Moore (and his pencilled ownership initials on an early binder's blank). Moore was the Colonial Manager for the South Australian Company from 1901 to 1929. Interestingly, the lithographs are by George French Angas from the artwork of others - 'a sketch by Col. Gawler' in the first instance and from drawings 'Model'd from life by Mrs Walker [? - cropped to Walk]' in the second. Extracts from official reports and various statistics (up to August 1842), but predominantly first-hand accounts, often in the form of lengthy quotes from letters from settlers. The passage of time puts things into perspective. There is a PS to Alexander Lorimer's letter: 'I have neglected to mention, that vineyards are forming by many of the settlers'. The closely-printed two pages on Aborigines concludes with this paragraph: 'It is hoped, that a conviction of the deep responsibility which we have incurred, toward the aboriginal inhabitants of that beautiful country, of which we have taken possession, will render the minuteness of the preceding information not unacceptable'. Ferguson 3721 (not mentioning Angas).

        Lettre autographe signée à l'une de ses muses, la Comtesse Merlin : « vous ne connaissez que les roses de la littérature et nous avons toutes les épines. »

      - s.l. s.d. [circa 1843], 30,5x13,3cm, Une page et demie sur un feuillet remplié. - lettera autografa, ancora inedito, firmato da Honoré de Balzac a Maria de Las Mercedes Santa Cruz y Montalvo, Contessa Merlin. Uno e mezzo disegnati in inchiostro. Con l'assistenza del signor Hervé Yon, è stato possibile identificare il destinatario di questa lettera ancora inedita (apparirà nel terzo volume della Pleiade della corrispondenza di Balzac con il numero n ° 42-175). Come sceneggiatore del suo tempo, Balzac molto frequentata brillanti salotti letterari e artistici di Parigi. E 'stato intorno al 1830 che è stato presentato alla Contessa Merlin. Nato a Cuba, ha vissuto la prima parte della sua vita a L'Avana e in Spagna. Ha sposato un soldato dopo il re di Spagna Joseph Bonaparte. E 'diventata così la Contessa Merlin. Con la sconfitta francese, la famiglia è stata costretta a ritirarsi a Parigi. Contessa Merlin era un cantante brillante. Ha studiato musica al Garcia, il padre della Malibran, un altro cantante con cui l'opera contessa da allora in poi. Nella sua casa di Rue de Bondy, lei concerti organizzati regolarmente Balzac era un normale così come il compositore Rossini, Alfred de Musset o La Fayette. Mentre fornisce un nuovo incontro musicale Balzac si scusa se ci vuole: "[...] non eccessivo piacere della buona musica si fa oggi [...] Ho un lavoro di emergenza che non permette che me ne vada. " Si tratta a tutti gli effetti dai suoi viaggi in Germania e Russia per iniziare a revisione e correzione del colonnello Chabert. È per questo che si chiede, "a che ora si può venire a visitare, senza di te preoccuparsi [...] le mie mattine sono più liberi di mie serate sono come le mie notti, scattate da opere letterarie. " Contessa Merlin sarà il dedicatario di Marana. Ha sposato un soldato come l'eroina del romanzo: Juana. Le loro vite sono anche influenzati dalle variazioni di regime politico che costringono entrambi a lasciare la Spagna per la Francia. La contessa inoltre fornito il modello per la marchesa di San-Real che appare nella Storia del Tredici e la ragazza con gli occhi d'oro. Entrambi hanno una madre spagnola, ha trascorso la loro infanzia a L'Avana prima di terminare la loro vita a Parigi. Contessa Merlin trascorso le estati in una residenza a Versailles. Pertanto Balzac lo informò che ha provato il "go to Versailles scorsa estate, ma mi è stato detto si riceve persona. "Ha trovato la porta chiusa, perché" si stava lavorando ad un nuovo libro, che ho già sentito parlare da uno dei miei editori non ha eguali in vendita (vale a dire, per comprare) libri. "Oltre al suo talento musicale, Contessa Merlin è illustrato nella letteratura. Al momento della lettera è quello di lavorare per il rilascio di L'Avana che sarà pubblicato nel 1845. Esso non cesserà di scrivere e pubblicare: libro di memoria, biografia dell'artista, nuovo ... Questo è uno dei primi e più celebri donne della lettera cubana. Vedova dal 1839, si era rivolto alla letteratura sperando di migliorare le sue finanze. Il suo Avana è il primo libro che si occupa di Cuba sotto sociologica, politica e culturale. Anche se questo lavoro è stato scritto in francese, contiene al suo interno l'essenza della letteratura creola. Un movimento tra cui delle colonie spagnole che celebravano volgare nazionalista letteratura impronta di credenze e pratiche locali gli autori. Lei si incontrerà con un certo successo a Parigi. A differenza di Balzac che, nonostante una reputazione crescente soffre la sua mancanza di successo commerciale. Durante la sua vita, egli tirerà il diavolo per la coda. Eppure è un gran lavoratore, così ha detto a lui, "non sai che le rose della letteratura e abbiamo tutte le spine. " - [FRENCH VERSION FOLLOWS] Exceptionnelle lettre autographe signée et encore inédite d'Honoré de Balzac à la comtesse Merlin. Une page et demie rédigée à l'encre noire. Balzac écrit ici à une célèbre femme de lettres et cantatrice d'origine espagnole et cubaine, qui lui inspira plusieurs personnages de la Comédie Humaine. Nous tenons à remercier M. Hervé Yon, spécialiste de Balzac, grâce à qui il a été possible d'identifier la destinataire de cette lettre (à paraître dans le troisième tome de la Pléiade de la Correspondance de Balzac sous le numéro 42-175). Maria de Las Mercedes Santa Cruz y Montalvo, née à La Havane en 1788, est issue d'une famille de la haute noblesse espagnole. Elle garda de son enfance passée à Cuba un tempérament « sauvage » (Sainte-Beuve) et un charme exotique qui la rendit célèbre à la cour du roi Joseph Bonaparte à Madrid, où elle rencontra le général Merlin, commandant de la garde royale. Elle l'épousa en 1811, avant de partir à Paris où ses talents et sa position la placèrent rapidement au premier rang de la haute société parisienne. Elle tint l'un des salons les plus fréquentés de Paris, notamment par La Fayette, George Sand, Mérimée, Chateaubriand, Musset, et recevant de nombreux compositeurs, dont Chopin, Verdi, Donizetti, et Rossini. Balzac y occupa une place de choix depuis sa première visite dans les années 1830. Dans ce cercle restreint qui entoure la comtesse Merlin, on parle littérature, on joue au lansquenet et on donne de nombreux concerts, auxquels la comtesse - à la voix de soprano unique - participe souvent.   À l'époque de la lettre, la comtesse prépare une nouvelle réunion musicale à laquelle Balzac s'excuse de ne pouvoir venir : « Je vous prie d'agréer mes excuses si je ne prends pas l'excessif plaisir de la bonne musique que vous ferez aujourd'hui [...] J'ai un travail d'urgence qui ne me permet pas de sortir ». De retour de ses voyages en Allemagne et en Russie, Balzac commence la relecture et la correction du Colonel Chabert, publié sous sa forme définitive en 1844.

        An Essay on the Tongue, in Functional Derangement of the Stomach and Bowels; With Some Observations on the Tongue's Aspect in Organic Disease of the Lungs.

      London: Simpkin, Marshall and Co., 1843. First edition. Blindstamped cloth.. Very Good Minus. Presentation copy -- signed by Williams on FFEP. 8vo. 22.5 by 14.5 cm. xi, 119 pp. Williams was the senior physician to the Essex and Colchester Hospital. This essay provides "some observation of the tongue's aspect in organic disease of the lungs". Williams argues that observations of the tongue in a distressed patient can hold the key to diagnosing the ailment which afflicts the patient. He provides an abundance of statistical evidence, based on clinical observation. He writes, "I was induced to enter upon this inquiry from observing that the mucous membrane and papillae of the tongue presented varying aspects in functional disturbances of the stomach." This title predates Yaggy's book on cancer of the tongue, and Butlin's book on diseases of the tongue, by 40 years, and is contemporaneous with Harris' paper on the teeth, lips and tongue, read before the American Society of Dental Surgeons in 1841. Thus, it is perhaps the first, and certainly an early, study on the relationship of the appearance of the tongue to health and disease. Not in Garrison & Morton. A few neat horizontal tears of cloth on the spine. General wear besides.

        WE PITY THE PLUMAGE, BUT FORGET THE DYING BIRD.' An Address to the People on The Death of the Princess Charlotte.

      Thomas Rodd). ND (Circa 1843), (London. - pp 16. 8vo. Stitched as issued. Browned throughout. Edges chipped, frail. Preserved in a custom built box covered in brown cloth with leather spine label. Wise p46. Rodd, 'when advertising the present pamphlet for sale [ ] asserted that it was a facsimile reprint of an alleged original edition of which the author was said to have printed twenty copies in 1816.' Wise argues that this is the first edition. His main points are 'One thing is certain, and that is that had Shelley printed such a pamphlet he would not have restricted its circulation to twenty copies. The motto 'We pity the plumage, but forget the dying bird' was taken by Shelley from Paine's Rights of Man, 1817, Part 1, p.24. 'He [Burke] pities the plumage but forgets the dying bird'. This clearly denies any impression of the Address dated 1816.' Princess Charlotte dies in 1817. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Dritte Auflage.Ulm, F. Ebner (back of title-page text volume: printed by G. Sellmer), 1857. 8vo. 2 volumes (text and plates). With 18 hand-coloured, folded lithographed plates (36.5 x 23.5 cm) of poisonous plants (17) and fungi (1). Text volume, with its spine lined with green paper; plates loosely inserted in original publisher's printed paper boards.

      BMC NH, p. 1163. Third edition of a German schoolbook, depicting the most common poisonous plants. In the preface to the first edition of 1843, Christian Lörcher, a schoolteacher in Ulm, expresses his concern about the lack of knowledge of poisonous plants among students. Books on poisonous plants are either too expensive to buy or too difficult to comprehend for young people. He therefore wanted to publish the present affordable work. In an effort to keep the costs down, he only includes the most common poisonous plants and fungi. The plates have not been bound so that they can be mounted on cardboard and hung in full view in the students' classrooms. Lörcher accompanies the plates with short descriptions of each species. Plate 16 has slight damage to the margins and plate 17 a minor spot. A very good copy.

Mr Brocktorff had fought in the Napoleonic wars as an infantry officer with the forces of the Electorate of Hanover before moving to England after 1809. When he settled in Malta in circa 1810, he opened an art studio in Valletta where his business prospered and his four artist sons eventually joined to continue to enrich the family enterprise' (, Tuesday, December 4, 2007).

        By Permission of the Patentees this Engraving of the First Carriage, the "Ariel", is respectfully inscribed to the Directors of the Aerial Transit Company.

      [London], W.L. Walton lith. and Day & Jaghe, Lithrs. To the Queen, [1843]. Original lithography, c 235 x 320 mm; upper outer corner lightly smudged and with a few folds; lower margin cropped. Extremely rare 'incunable' of heavier than air flight, published 60 years before Kitty Hawk took off. The Aerial Transit Company had been founded by businessman William Samuel Henson and the inventor-engineer John Stringfellow. 'They established the world's first airline company - though they were armed with little more than an English patent awarded for their aircraft design, which was untested. At the time, only balloon flight could hope to carry passengers to a distant destination by air, even if that was unpredictable, challenging and slow. With visions of supplementing their income with flights that carried cargo and mail, as well as passengers to distant places - as far away as China, spanning the entire British Empire - the partners were true visionaries' (Historic Wings, online). 'Their monoplane design featured a wing with a proper airfoil and covered surfaces top and bottom. A hollow main spar with leading and trailing edge boards, were held together by a series of wing ribs to establish a proper airfoil. As well, wires affixed to posts gave further support to the wing as it was foreseen that the forces of aerodynamics could be significant and that this allowed overall lightening of the airframe. Even the methods of holding spars and ribs together were defined and finely researched. A tricycle gear configuration was pioneered for take off and landing as well as a launch rail that would allow the plane to maintain a heading as it accelerated to flying speed' (ibid.). Of course, the weight of the steam engine was the problem; only models of various sizes had been produced and tested. However, the design, especially of the wings and the propellor arrangement were truly pioneering and successfully applied in the designs of Rumpler, Blériot and others. The advertisement campaign for raising funds produced a few images of the aircraft, this particular one, with the aircraft over London, bridges packed with spectators and St Paul's in the background seems to be unknown, apart from a much smaller version of the image.

Titel mit altem Besitzvermerk "Wörtz" (vielleicht der Allgäuer Mediziner Franz Xaver Wörz), einige Bl. mit kleinem restaurierten Eckausbruch.Der großformatige anatomischer Atlas gliedert sich in folgende sechs Abteilungen: Knochenlehre (17 Taf.) Bänderlehre (7 Taf.) Muskellehre (10 Taf.) Eingeweidelehre (25 Taf.) Gefässlehre (68 Taf.) Nervenlehre (52 Taf.)."Als Dr. Oesterreicher, Professor der Anatomie .in der chirurgischen Schule in Landshut, im Juni des Jahres 1827 den vorliegenden Atlas anzufertigen begann, lag es in seinem Plane die ganze menschliche Anatomie eigenhändig in Steinstich auszuführen. Dass aber ein so grossartiges Unternehmen kaum zum Ziele zu bringen sey, schien er dadurch bekennen zu wollen, dass er sich der hiezu nöthigen Präparationen an Leichen und der darnach zu entwerfenden Zeichnungen enthob und nur allgemein als gediegen anerkannte Abbildungen anderer Anatomen zu copiren sich vornahm. In dieser Absicht arbeitete seine kunstreiche, im Steinstiche *) für die damalige Zeit gewiss ausserordentlich geübte Hand bis zum Dezember 1829 und bis dahin waren 151 Tafeln, worunter 88 ausgeführte und 63 Umrisstafeln, fertig, die er unter dem Titel: "Anatomische Steinstiche oder Darstellung des menschlichen Körpers sowie seiner Theile mit Benützung des besten bisher Geleisteten gezeichnet in Stein gestochen und in "sechs Abtheilungen gesammelt und herausgegeben von Dr. H. Oesterreicher. München 1830" veröffentlichte.Oesterreicher beabsichtigte diesem so publicirten Werke nach und nach durch neu hinzugefügten Tafeln eine grössere Vollständigkeit zu verleihen, aber traurige Umstände hinderten ihn daran. Kurz vor seinem Tode wollte 1842 einer seiner Verwandten eine neue Auflage dieses Werkes veranstalten, allein ehe es noch dazu kam, kaufte es die Palm'sche Hofbuchhandlung an sich und diese ersuchte mich die neue Ausgabe des Atlases zu besorgen, und ihm zugleich die möglichste Vollständigkeit und Brauchbarkeit zu gehen. Hiezu liess ich mich auch bereitwillig herbei. Ich nahm mir vor in diesem Atlas alles Wichtigere der descriptiven und mikroskopischen Anatomie des Menschen in getreuen, sauber gearbeiteten und hinreichend grossen Abbildungen zu geben, welche zum Studium der Anfänger und zum bequemen Nachtschlagen absolvirter Mediziner dienen sollten. Vor Allem liess ich die meisten Umrisstafeln abändern. Ursprünglich hatte Oesterreicher fast keine Bezifferung angebracht, sondern schrieb die Benennungen der vornehmsten Theile in die Umrisse hinein. Dadurch - zumal die Schrift sehr gross war wurde Vieles zugdeckt, und es konnten wohl einige Theile benannt werden, die meisten aber blieben ohne alle weitere Bezeichnung. Diese Methode, so praktisch sie ist, hat doch den Nachtheil, dass die meisten Personen, welche so ein Werk zu Räthe ziehen, nicht immer gehörig klar werden. Meiner Ansicht nach kann die Bezifferung nie zu speziell seyn denn je ausführlicher sie ist, desto leichter muss man einen abgebildeten Theil in der Natur wieder finden, oder in der Natur sich denken können. Zugleich hat Oesterreicher auf die Umrisstafeln weniger Mühe gewendet, sie waren grösstentheils ohne alle Reinheit hingeworfen. Von den ausgeführten Tafeln habe ich die meisten so wie sie Oesterreicher fertigte, beibehalten, nur wenige wurden als nicht ganz passend abgeschliffen. Hiezu aber fügte ich häufig auf die Oesterreicher'schen Tafeln neue Figuren und gab neue ausgeführte und Umrisstafelen, deren Figuren theils von mir selber nach der Natur gezeichnet und unter meiner Aufsicht in Stein gestochen worden sind, theils liess ich aus vorzüglichen Werken genaue Copieen fertigen. Um möglichst offen darzustellen was in vorliegendem Werke von mir und was von Oesterreicher ist, soll in umstehendem Register eine genaue Angabe aller Tafeln und Figuren folgen, wobei ich Alles, was von Oesterreicher's Hand stammt, mit - O - und was von mir hinzugelugt wurde mit - E - bezeichne. Schliesslich bemerke ich noch, dass ich allen Theilen dieses Atlases die möglichste Vollständigkeit zu gehen suchte, und glaube auch, dass man, besonders in den ersten 5 Abtheilungen durchaus nichts Wesentliches vermissen wird. Da jedoch in dem von der Verlagshandlung für das' ganze Werk angekündigten Umfange von 180 Tafeln, der Raum für die letzte Abtheilung, unbeschadet ihrer Vollständigkeit, nicht mehr ganz ausreichte, so beabsichtigte ich im Laufe des nächsten Jahres, Alles was meines Wissens noch zur Vervollständigung der Neurologie dienen kann, und was vielleicht bis dahin auch in den andern Abtheilungen noch entdeckt werden sollte, in einem eigenen Supplementhefte nachzutragen, so dass dann dieser Atlas in allen seinen Theilen durch die Fortschritte im Gebiete dieser Wissenschaft bis zur neuesten Zeit bereichert, sowohl dein Studierenden als auch dein praktischen Mediziner ein verlässiger Rathgeber und brauchbares Nachschlagebuch in der Anatomie sein soll." Vorrede, München, am 26. October 1844. M. Erdl.Heinrich Oesterreicher (1805-1843) war Privatdozent für Anatomie an der Universität München und nach 1831 Professor an der chirurgischen Schule zu Landshut,.Waller 6966. Hirsch-H. IV, 415. - Vgl. Engelmann 419.*) Die Technik des Steinstichs bzw. der Steingravur war der Lithographie durch ihre Anfälligkeit unterlegen, da die Platten oft brachen, weswegen nur in kleinen Auflagen gedruckt werden konnte. Die Drucke waren der Lithographie aber an Detailgenauigkeit überlegen.
