        Ueber die chemische Zusammensetzung der Eiterzellen IN: Hoppe-Seyler (ed) Medicinsich-chemische Untersuchungen, Heft 4, 441-60

      <p> Discovery of DNA</p><p>Miescher, Johann Friedrich (1844-95). Ueber die chemische Zusammensetzung der Eiterzellen. In Hoppe-Seyler, Felix, ed., Med.-chem. Untersuchungen (Berlin: Hirschwald, 1866-71), Heft 4: 441-60. 8vo. vi, 593pp. 3 lithographed plates. 210 x 141 mm. Cloth ca. 1871, title in gilt on spine. Booklabel of the Chemischen Institute der Universität Innsbruck, and their stamp and withdrawal stamp on title page. Fine copy. </p> <p>First Edition. One of the earliest significant contributions to the field that would eventually be called molecular biology. "Miescher&#39;s first and most important discovery was a new class of compounds rich in organic phosphorus and forming the major constituent of cell nuclei. He rightly concluded that these &#39;nucleins,&#39; as he called them, were as important a center of metabolic activity as the proteins" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Miescher&#39;s "nuclein" (nucleoprotein) was later demonstrated to be the hereditary genetic material (DNA). He also was the first to suggest the existence of a genetic code</p>. <p>Miescher was the son of Johann Friedrich Miescher the elder, professor of pathological anatomy at the University of Bern; his uncle was Wilhelm His, Sr., professor of anatomy and physiology at the University of Basel and inventor of the microtome. After receiving his M.D. in 1868 Miescher began working under the physiological chemist Felix Hoppe-Seyler, who encouraged Miescher to study leucocytes (white blood cells). Miescher developed techniques for isolating the nuclei of these cells, and then subjected the purified nuclei to an alkaline extraction followed by acidification, resulting in a precipitate that Miescher called nuclein. Upon further analysis, Miescher was able to demonstrate the salt-like union of nuclein&#39;s two major components, an acid fraction and a basic fraction. He thus became the first to isolate and identify what we now know as DNA. Garrison-Morton 695. </p>

        Moeurs, Usages et Costumes de tous les peuples du monde , d&#39;après des documents authentiques et les voyages les plus récents

      Brussels: Librairie Historique, 1844. Four volumes, large octavo, with a total of 213 finely handcoloured costume plates; contemporary green quarter roan. Portrait of a Pitcairn girl. Scarce and beautiful work on the costumes of the world, finely illustrated with a wonderful series of highly coloured full-page plates. The fourth volume covers Oceania and includes the Aborigines of Jervis Bay and Kangaroo Island, and the exotic peoples of New Guinea, Timor, Java, New Zealand and Hawaii. Of particular note is the portrait of a "Jeune fille de l&#39;ile Pitcairn", pictured in a yellow skirt and vivid blue sash. Appended is a brief but very good note on the history of Pitcairn and the mutiny, which includes notice of the voyage of the Comet and the Lucy-Ann, which transported the entire population of the island to Tahiti. There are also images familiar to us from published voyage accounts such as the Tahitian dancer after John Webber from the account of Cook&#39;s third voyage, and portrait profiles of Maoris based on Sydney Parkinson&#39;s images published in the official account of the first voyage. As usual, the plates in the publication do not exactly correspond with the lists published within the work. The table of contents describes one hundred and eighty-five plates (actually one hundred and eighty-eight, but an erratum shows that only one hundred and eighty-five were issued) and subscribers could also order a series of twelve special supplementary plates - as here - making a total of one hundred and ninety-seven plates. This copy, however, has two hundred and thirteen plates. A full collation is available on request.

        Recollections of the Emperor Napoleon,

      London: John Murray,, 1844. during the First Three Years of his Captivity on the Island of St. Helena: including the Time of his Residence at her Father&#39;s House, "The Briars". Octavo. Original green fine-grained cloth elaborately decorated in blind and gilt, title and bee devices gilt to spine, Légion d&#39;Honneur device gilt to centre of front board and in blind to rear, both within triple fillet panels in blind with groups of four bees, similarly in blind, in corners, cream surface-paper endpapers. Engraved half-title with Légion d&#39;Honneur vignette, lithographed frontispiece of The Briars, and 5 other scenic plates, engraved by Henry Vizetelly. A little rubbed, and a touch mottled, frontispiece, half-title and plates somewhat foxed as usual, text lightly toned, but overall very good and remains attractive. Contemporary pencilled ownership inscription of Maria Nickleson. First edition, first impression, and uncommon thus, particularly in the cloth. Mrs Abell, née Betsy Balcombe, was the daughter of an East India Company official at St. Helena. At the time of his arrival in exile, Napoleon&#39;s intended residence, Longwood, was still being refurbished, so he lodged for two months with the Balcombe family, and struck up a warm friendship with fourteen year-old Betsy, who called him "Boney" to his face, without reproach. When the ex-emperor removed to Longwood she continued to visit him, arousing the suspicions of the ever over-cautious governor, Sir Hudson Lowe. In 1818 the Balcombe family left the island, but Betsy remained in contact with the Bonaparte family, Joseph, Napoleon&#39;s elder brother, visiting her in London in 1830. The seven-page subscriber&#39;s list includes some interesting notabilities including Hans Busk, Capt. Marryat, Sir Francis Burdett, and Lady Blessington.

First edition.The Abbé Moigno (1804-1844), sometime Jesuit priest, and from 1873 canon of the collegiate chapter of the Basilica of Saint Denis in Paris, was also, from 1836, professor of mathematics at the College of Sainte-Geneviève, Rue des Postes. This, his best known mathematical work, was inspired directly by Augustin-Louis Cauchy (1789-1857), whom Moigno considered his master (Cauchy, as well as being one of the greatest French mathematicians of the nineteenth century, was, like Moigno, a hyper-reactionary and ultramontane legitimist supporter of the Bourbon claim to the French throne, only tolerated at the Académie des sciences for his sheer brillance. Moigno left the Jesuit order while working on the second volume, of this work finally published in 1844, going on to write a number of notorious apologetic works such as Les splendeurs de la foi (1879-1883) and Les livres saints et la science (1884).

        Ancient National Airs of Gwent and Morganwg; being a collection of Original Welsh Airs,

      Llandovery. Soho Square. London.: William Rees. D&#39;Almaine and Mackinlay In contemporary embossed cloth, corners and edges a little bumped and worn, some repairs, gilt title and harp to upper board. New brown cloth spine, printed titles to paper label. Internally, yellow endpapers, stamped Llandaff address to fep, stamped name (EL Williams - Seren Cymru) to to and dedication leaf, [5], 6-86 pp, printed by W Rees, Llandovery, not dated but 1844 per BL. Includes a 2 page subscribers list. Williams, (Maria) Jane, singer and compiler of traditional Welsh music competed at Abergavenny, but there are conflicting accounts of her victories. She probably won in 1838 for an arrangement of a Welsh air for four voices, and a year earlier for the best collection of unpublished Welsh music. This was to be published as Ancient Airs of Gwent and Morgannwg (1844), the collection of folk-songs for which she is best remembered. She was considered an authority by her contemporaries and was consulted by them on matters pertaining to folk-songs, but her authority has been challenged by modern scholars. See ODNB.
