        Portefeuille du Comte de Forbin.

      Paris, M. Challamel, 1843.. Fol.. 2 ff., VIII, 56 pp., 45 lithographed plates including portrait of the author Contemporary quarter calf (original wraper bound in). Rare final work of Comte P. A. de Forbin (1779-1841), painter, connaisseur, and the first Directeur General of the Louvre under the Bourbon restoration. The engravings depict the choicest works of the Comte's ouevre, taken mainly from his time in Rome (1802 - 1805) and his expedition to Greece and the Levant in 1817. Although a distinct product of the newly-restored Bourbon regime, Forbin brought his own personal taste to the Louvre, also reflected in his own artistic works. The volume, intended as a commemorative piece, was published two years after the death of the Comte by his brother-in-law, M. de Marcellus, with accompanying explanatory text. The 44 engravings depict scenes including Jerusalem's Jewish Quarter, views from Jericho, Jaffa, Alexandria, Constantinople, Rome, Messina, Syracus, Athens and numerous other, mostly Middle Eastern themes. An acclaimed painter in his own right as well as a voracious collector, the Comte's life spanned a tumultuous period in French politics and art. In the counter-revolutionary insurrection at Lyon in 1793 he lost his father and uncle, yet managed to weather the later years of the Directoire in Paris as an already-established artist. In 1814 he succeeded Vivant-Denon as curator of the Louvre, where he soon organised a voyage to the Levant to purchase Greek and Roman antiquities. Under his supervision, the Palais du Luxembourg was opened as a museum of contemporary art. Our copy of the present work belonged to the Hungarian physician Adam Politzer (1835-1920), "the greatest otologist of the 19th century", according to one biographer, and the recognized founder of that science. It has a charming bookplate designed by Politzer's grandson Walther Friedländer. - Foxing, some plates browned or with light stains, some clean, spine rubbed. Complete with all plates.

Schwenck besorgte Ausgaben und Übersetzungen von Aischylos und Homer, betrieb sprachvergleichende und mythologische Studien (u.a. Die Mythologie der asiatischen Völker, der Aegypter, Griechen, Römer, Germanen und Slaven, 1843) und veröffentlichte Werke zur deutschen Sprache und Literatur (u.a.

        Das (Buch) der Geheimniße. - Handschriftliches Zauberbuch oder Grimoire basierend auf den Texten des ,Claviculae Salomonis et Theosophia Pneumatica', ergänzt um einige kabbalistisch-jüdische Elemente und um eine grosse Zahl von Schutz-, Heil-, Schatz- u. Schadenszaubern.

      1843,. gr. in-4to, 96 unnum. Bl., in gut leserlicher dt. Kurrentschrift (ca. 27 Zeilen/S.), auf den letzten Seiten des Textes verschiedene Hände am Werk, leicht fleckig, die letzten 10 Seiten durchgehend mit Wasserflecken (kein Textverlust), guter Zustand, hs. Besitzervermerk auf Vorderdeckel, Orig. marmorierter Pappeinband mit hs. Titelschildchen auf Vorderdeckel (oberer Teil d. Schild. fehlt), an den Ecken berieben, am Rücken aufgeplatzt, hinteres Scharnier gespalten, Hinterdeckel von Wasser beschädigt, ansonsten festes Exemplar.. Einmalige magische Schrift, welche mit der Abschrift der wichtigsten Passagen aus dem ,Schlüssel Salomons' (Claviculae Salomonis et Theosophia pneumatica: Das ist Warhaftige Erkäntniß Gottes und seiner Sichtigen und Unsichtigen Geschöpfe oder die Heil. Geist Kunst gelernt.) beginnt. Diese wichtige alchemistisch-kabbalistische Schrift wurde 1686 erstmals in deutscher Übersetzung gedruckt. Die Druckfassung enthält dabei aber kaum eigentliche Zauberformeln, sondern nur eine theoretische Einführung mit Beschreibungen und Eigenschaften der Geister und ihrer Erscheinungsformen, sowie ihren Zeichen und Symbolen. Unser Exemplar ergänzt, verglichen mit der Druckfassung, eine Liste der 7 Planeten und beschränkt sich ansonsten auf die wichtigsten Beschreibungen der Geister (mit Zeichnungen ihrer Symbole) und der Gebete. Es folgt die eigentliche Sammlung von Zauberformeln, Beschwörungen und Rezepten, durchnummeriert von 1 bis 469 (insgesamt 470 Artikel). Einige Rezepte wurden dabei auch aus andern Büchern übernommen (z.B. aus dem Buch von Dr. Faust). Dieses Werk zeigt den Wandel der Zauberbücher (grimoire) von eigentlichen philosophischen Geheimschriften mit Elementen der Kabbala aus der Zeit der Renaissance und des Humanismus zu praktischen Zauberbüchern, welche auch dem Laien und ungeübten ,Zauberlehrling' Zugang zu den Geheimnissen des Universums bieten Die Formelsammlung beginnt mit den Zitaten der Worte Moses aus der Bibel (offensichtlich im aramäischen Original), welche beim Aussprechen Kraft geben oder gar Wunder wirken sollen. Die meisten Formeln sind sehr praktisch und einfach umzusetzen. So gibt es welche für die Jagd (dass alle Schüsse treffen, dass alle andern daneben schiessen etc.), die Liebeskünste (dass eine zu dir komme, dass ein Paar einander Gram werde), Schadzauber (dass einem Dieb die Augen aus dem Kopf faulen, Läuse machen), Zauber gegen Feuer, Glück im Spiel, gegen Tierkrankheiten (wenn das Vieh verhext ist, gegen den bösen Euter etc.), Heilung für die Menschen (viele Formeln, u.a. Rezepte für allerlei Arzneimittel wie z.B. ,ein Pulver gegen die Schwindsucht'; hier kommen oft alchemistische Künste zum Zug, jedoch zumeist in Verbindung mit ,christlichen' Elementen wie ,Doctor Theophrasti Paracel tägliches Gebet'). Einen grossen Platz nimmt auch das Wünschelrutengehen ein. Vom Herstellen der Rute aus einem Haselnussstrauch bis zum Auffinden von ,Gold, Silber, Edelsteinen und Perlen' und andern von Menschenhand vergrabenen oder vermauerten Schätzen (inklusive Vertreiben der bösen Geister, welche sie bewachen). Zwischen Rezepten gegen Hexen und für allerlei Salben, Augenwasser und andere Tinkturen, finden sich auch alltägliche Anleitungen und Tipps, z.B. um einen guten Weinessig herzustellen, für die Verwendung von Eau de Cologne, das Verfertigen von Zahnpasta oder welche Mittel Fliegen vertreiben.

        Leopold Auenbrugger's ... Neue Erfindung mittelst des Anschlagens an den Brustkorb, als eines Zeichens, verborgene Brust-Krankheiten zu entdecken. Im lateinischen Original herausgegeben, übersetzt und mit Anmerkungen versehen von Dr. S. Ungar. Begleitet mit einem Vorworte von Joseph Skoda, Doctor der Medicin, Primararzt am k.k. allgem. Krankenhause zu Wien, &c. &c.

      Wien, J.B. Wallishausser, 1843.. 8°, OBr., unbeschnitten, in mod. Lwd.-Kassette; ODeckel, VIII, 72 S. (lateinischer und deutscher Paralleltext, zweispaltig gedruckt). außerordentlich seltene EA der deutschen Übersetzung von Auenbruggers berühmter Schrift "Inventum novum", ein "Meilenstein in der Geschichte der Medizin" (HEIRS OF HIPPOCRATES 599). Auenbrugger (1722-1809) hatte schon bei van Swieten gelernt, dass durch das Beklopfen des Abdomens manche Krankheiten (z.B. Bauchwassersucht) festgestellt werden konnten. Sieben Jahre lang studierte er die verschiedenen Schallphänomene, die beim Beklopfen des Brustkorbs mit den Fingern entstanden, bevor er die Ergebnisse publizierte ("Inventum novum...", 1761). Die wissenschaftliche Anerkennung der Bedeutung dieser Entdeckung blieb ihm jedoch bis kurz vor seinem Lebensende verwehrt; insbesondere van Swieten selbst verschmähte seine Arbeit und schwieg sie tot. Maximilian Stoll - damals Direktor der Medizinischen Klinik am Spanischen Hospital - probierte die neue Methode aus und lobte sie in einem seiner Bücher, aber dies hatte keine weiteren Konsequenzen. Auenbrugger verließ das Spanische Spital in Wien enttäuscht und zog sich in eine Privatpraxis zurück; die Perkussion geriet in Vergessenheit. Erst durch Jean Nicolas Corvisart (1755-1821) erhielt sie ihre verdiente Anerkennung; er entdeckte die Bemerkung von Stoll und gab 1808 eine französische Übersetzung des "Inventum novum..." heraus. Joseph Skoda (1805-1881) gehörte zu den besten Klinikern der jüngeren Wiener Medizinischen Schule und begründete nach eingehender Beschäftigung mit den Methoden der Perkussion und Auskultation die moderne physikalische Diagnostik. Seine eigene "Abhandlung über Perkussion und Auskultation" (Wien 1839) wurde weltbekannt. - NORMAN 86; HIRSCH/H. I, 225

        Ka Palapala Hemolele a Iehova ko kakou Akua

      Oahu and Honolulu,: Na Na Misionari i Pai,, 1843.. Oahu and Honolulu,: Na Na Misionari i Pai,, 1843.. Large thick octavo, a few gatherings gently browned (reflecting different paper stock), but an excellent copy in later half calf. The first full Hawaiian language Bible: the single volume incorporates both Old and New Testaments.This combined edition is a monumental work of translation and scholarship, the fruit of years of labour by members of the American Bible Society at the Mission Presses of Oahu and Honolulu. The first native language scriptures printed in the Hawaiian islands date from 1827. The first Hawaiian printing of the complete edition of the New Testament appeared in 1835, with the Old Testament following in 1838.This is the first printing of the complete approved text of both Testaments issued as a single continuously paginated book. Both Testaments have separately printed title pages, the Old Testament bearing the Oahu Mission Press imprint while the New Testament title page (comprising pp.1129-30) states this section was printed at Honolulu. (Confusingly, the verso of the Old Testament title page is printed 'Ka Lua O Ke Pai Ana' ('the second printing'), however, this refers to the only other printing of the entire Old Testament in 1838 at the same press).Forbes notes that this Bible formed a compact edition intended for family and devotional use (a larger format version with reset title-pages was also issued in 1843 for church pulpits). The typography is skilfully composed and unhurried, and the present copy is a beautifully preserved example of the fine work of the Mission Press.Forbes, 'Hawaiian National Bibliography', 1416; Hunnewell, pp.24-25; Judd, 265.

He left the nobleman and went to St. Petersburg, where he set up a private practice and became physician to the embassy. He finally returned to London in 1842. Lefevre ended his life by swallowing prussic acid. His Life of a Travelling Physician ""is an account of his travels on the continent and residence in Poland and Russia, and is chiefly interesting for its description of social life in Poland and of that of the members of the English factory at St. Petersburg"" (DNB).

Tizard was responsible for one of the bibles of mid 19th century brewing, the substantial 'Theory and Practice of Brewing' (1843 and here advertised in its fourth edition, 1857), but while that and a couple of his other books are readily found in library catalogues around the world this book is remarkably elusive.

        A Voyage of Discovery Towards the North Pole Performed in His Majesty&#39;s Ships Dorthea and Trent under the Command of David Buchan, R.N., 1818

      London: Richard Bentley, 1843. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good. 351 pp, with engraved frontispiece, map tipped in at front pastedown (originally in a pocket), and five additional engravings, including two folding panoramic views. First edition in original binding (rebacked, with most of original spine laid down), in custom quarter-leather slipcase and chemise. Corners rubbed, some foxing (mainly to plates), all else very good. Buchan (b. 1780) was provided with detailed orders to find a passage through the ice at the North Pole and then to sail through Bering Strait into the Pacific Ocean. His second in command was Lt. (later Sir) John Franklin, who captained the Trent, on which the author served. The two ships spent many weeks stuck in pack ice northwest of Spitsbergen, and ultimately were too heavily damaged by high winds to carry on. Though they failed to find a route across the pole, the expedition did produce many valuable scientific and cartographic observations (DCB; Arctic Bib 1230). Beechey&#39;s narrative is only first-hand account of the expedition.

        Temple of Minerva or the Parthenon. " Tempio di Minerva o Parthenone

      Greece: Rome Unknown. 1843. Copper engraving of the Parthenon by Andrea Gasperini. Black & white; verso blank. Dedication to "Signor Alessandro Cipriani di Livorno, amatore e dislinto cultore di belle arti" with the artist&#39;s sincere friendship and gratiude. A rare engraving, as far as we can determine it was seperately issued, ie never bound as a book with the others of the series. The large view shows the front of the Parthenon with various figures; in the foreground lie broken columns and pieces of the pediment. Good dark impression; some spotting within image; tear to lower margin, repaired. Andrea Gasparini, produced a series of engravings of Monuments of Athens, all dedicated to Alessandro Cipriani of Livorno, little is known about the artist or why Sig. Cipriani was interested in the views. The engravings are interesting for what they show of life in Greece after the fall of the Ottomans; whilst showing the monuments they also show life in Athens as a Greek town. In a number of the views Gasparini shows festivals or celebrations taking place at the sites.; they also reveal how small the &#39;city&#39; was . Athens was chosen as the Greek capital for historical and sentimental reasons, not because it was a large city: there are few buildings in Athens from the period of Byzantine Empire and the 18th century. At the time these views were published new buildings were being erected : the University of Athens (1837), the Royal Palace (now the Greek Parliament Building) (1843), the National Garden of Athens (1840), the National Library of Greece (1842) but it is clear from the views that Athens was a small town.at the time of their drawing.
