        The Chimes: A Goblin Story

      London: Chapman & Hall, 1845. First edition. Near Fine. Uncommon first state vignette title page with the publisher's imprint within the illustration (Smith II.5; Sadlier 683). Small 8vo: (viii), 175, [1]; complete. A Near Fine copy with slight darkening to the spine and a few trivial tears in the cloth, otherwise clean, and bright. Dickens' second Christmas book, which continues his social commentaries on the poor. Structured similarly to "A Christmas Carol," the main character, Trotty, witnesses an alternative future through a series of visions and ultimately is given a second chance to put things right. "The Chimes" was a bestseller in its day, but has since been eclipsed by "A Christmas Carol." Quite scarce in this condition. Near Fine.

        Voyage autour du monde exécuté pendant les années 1836 et 1837 sur la corvette La Bonite .

      Bertrand Paris -52 1845 - First edition. 4 volumes comprising three 8vo text volumes and one folio (50 x 34 cm) atlas volume, 100 fine lithographs, light scattered foxing to atlas, some foxing and staining to text, modern red morocco gilt, an excellent set. The many beautifully lithographed plates in the atlas include views of Valparaiso, Santiago, Callao, and Quayaquil in South America; and in the Far East, views of Manila, Singapore, Calcutta, Macao, the Pearl River, Canton, and Hong Kong. There are also six fine views of the Hawaiian Islands. The main aim of this voyage was political in nature; to show the French flag in various areas in the Pacific - the Hawaiian Islands, China, and Cochin China, to extend protection to a number of French subjects, and to draw up comprehensive reports on the countries visited, including Brazil, Chile, the Marianas, and the Philippines. Although the projected voyage was to be of rather short duration, scientific interests were valso considered, and members of the expedition included Joseph Eydoux, a zoologist who had previously sailed to the Pacific with La Place, and Charles Gaudichaud, a botanist who had previously travelled with Freycinet. In Hawaii Vaillant spent much time easing relations between French residents and the chiefs, particularly with respect to the expulsion of Catholic priests. This set comprises the account of the voyage along with the album of views. Subsequent to the publication of this narrative, various scientific reports arising from the voyage were published over a number of years up to 1866. These reports are "very rare" (Hill). In some copies there are 4 illustrations in the text volumes but these are not included with the present set. Sabin 39111 (La Salle) & 98298 (Vaillant); BdM. 874; Forbes 1572; Hill 303.

        De Venise a Constantinople a travers la Grece et retour par Malte, Messine, Pizzo et Naples.

      Paris Chez De La Rue circa 1845 - First edition. Landscape folio (44 x 64.4 cm), 24pp, 9pp, 2 lithograph title pages (1 foxed), map of Greece, 51 lithographed plates (2 folding), after sketches by the author, original upper wrapper bound-in, modern calf-backed marbled boards, a fine clean copy. A rare work containing fine views of Venice, Corfu, Athens, Corinth, Constantinople, Malta, and elsewhere. Du Moncel (1821-1884) studied at the collège of Caen and at the age of eighteen published two works on perspective. After graduation he travelled in Greece and Turkey from November 1843 to the spring of 1844 spawning a number of publications, often with overlapping contents: Athenes monumentale et pittoresque [sometimes entitled Vues pittoresques des monuments d'Athenes] (1845 or 1846); Excursion par terre d'Athenes a Nauplie (1845), and this one. It seems that the present work, which has the most plates, was the first to appear and the others derive from it. They are all very rare. The plates in this work are of a high standard and comprise: [General title] Lepante; [sub-title] Episode de la Guerre de l'Independance; 1. Carte de Grece; 2 & 3. Venise; 4. Ancone; 5. Corfou; 6. Patras; 7. Curzola; Calamaki (2 views); 8-23. [Views in Athens, including a folding panorama]; 24. Monastere de Daphnee; 25. Eleusis; 26. Megare; 27-31 [Views in and around Corinth]; 32. Temple de Nemee et tombeau d'Agamemnon (2 views); 33. Acropole de Micenes; 34. Porte des lions; 35. Ruines de Tirynthe; 36. Vue de la plaine d'Argos; 36 bis. Antiquites d'Argos; 37. Nauplie; 38. Temple de Jupiter a Egine; 39. Temple de Sunium; 40. Syra; 41. Folieri (Phocee); 42. Smyrne; 43. Panorama de la Troade (folding plate with 3 views); 44. Les Dardanelles; 45. Constantinople; 46 & 47. Malte; 48. Messine; 49. Pizzo; 50 & 51. Naples. In later life Du Moncel developed an interest in electricity. Some sixty-five books and papers on electricity and magnetism followed during thirty years of active writing, his works being translated into English, German, Portuguese, and Italian. Graesse, II, 445. Not in Blackmer, Weber, or Atabey. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        20 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Zus. 58 S., 12 bis Gr.-8. Maria Johanna Antonia Leopoldine Welser, Gräfin von Welsersheimb heiratete 1845 den Grafen Johann Peter Anton Karl von Goess (1807-1852). Sie war die legendäre Obersthofmeisterin der Kaiserin Elisabeth. Das niederösterreichische Schloss Artstetten diente als Familiensitz und Sommerresidenz der kaiserlichen Familie. - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u. Hausprälat Papst Pius' XI., Apostolischer Pronotar, Kanoniker der Kathedrale von Großwardein, Träger zahlr. Orden (u.a. von Spanien, Parma u. des Ritterordens vom Heiligen Grab zu Jerusalem) sowie Mitglied zahlr. Akademien. Der Verfasser zahlr. Publikationen und Vertraute des belgischen Königs und des Grafen von Chambord blieb nach der Rückkehr von seiner Pilgerreise in Wien, wo er weiterhin in persönlichem Kontakt mit dem Kaiserhaus stand. - In einem numerierten, von Mislin eigenh. beschrifteten Papierumschlag. - Beiliegend ein eigenh. Brief m. Unterschrift von Mislin (Wien, 16. XII. 1867 3 S., Gr.-8) wohl eine Abschrift oder ein nicht abgeschickter Brief. -

        The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America.

      New York J.J. Audubon -V.G. Audubon -54 1845 - First edition. Three atlas volumes, elephant folio (69.2x53 cm) and 3 volumes text, royal 8vo (26.5x18 cm). Three lithographic title-pages and 3 leaves of contents in letterpress. 150 hand-coloured lithographic plates after John James and John Woodhouse Audubon, the backgrounds after Victor Audubon, by J.T. Bowen; text volume with 5 lithographic plates. (The titles and contents leaves creased and spotted, volume 1 title with a short marginal tear, volume 2 title with small losses in the top margin, plates 41, 56 and 101 evenly browned, plate 51 with shallow crease, plate 81 with small area of marginal soiling, a few short marginal tears, the margins lightly yellowed and with occasional light spotting, this a little more pronounced in volume 1; text volumes with margins lightly yellowed and occasional minor spotting, text volume 2 without half title and final blank, and text volume 3 without final blank.) Atlas volumes bound in contemporary maroon half leather over cloth boards, the sides ruled in gilt, the spines ruled, tooled and lettered in gilt, yellow coated endpapers, edges gilt; text volumes bound in contemporary half russia, spines with raised bands gilt and lettered in compartments, marbled endpapers, neat restoration to joints and extremities, an excellent set with fine clean plates. Audubon's magnificent final work, with brilliantly coloured plates. One of the very few great colour plate books on animals. Born in Santo Domingo (now Haiti) in 1785, as the son of a French sea captain and a French chambermaid, Audubon arrived in America in 1803 and settled near Philadelphia. In 1820, facing bankruptcy as a result of several failed business ventures, Audubon decided to pursue his life-long interest in natural history and initially devoted his time to producing a complete record of American birds. He travelled for the next four years along the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers in search of species that may not have been included in the work of Alexander Wilson. The result of this endeavour was the famous The Birds of America. This was published in very large format (so-called double- elephant folio) between 1827 and 1838. In the early 1840's at the same time Audubon was producing the commercially successful octavo edition of his masterpiece, The Birds of America, he and his sons also began production of The Viviparous Quadrupeds of North America, an elephant folio of 150 lithographs meant to match the lavishness of the Birds. Unlike the double-elephant folio Birds, the Quadrupeds was produced entirely in the United States, making it the "largest single color plate book to be carried to a successful conclusion during the century [in this country]" (Reese). It took the Audubon family five years to publish the 150 plates and there were at that time three hundred subscribers. The book was the product of Audubon's collaboration with John Bachman, a pastor who had studied quadrupeds since he was a young man and who was recognized as an authority on the subject in the United States. This was a most ambitious project to be undertaken by a man of Audubon's age (he was fifty-seven when he started work on it). Many of the species were little known or poorly documented, and it would involve Audubon to seek out many species himself. In 1843 Audubon led a small party on an exploration to the Rockies to gather material. They never reached the Rockies but returned home with enough specimens pickled in rum to enable Bachman to proceed with the text. By 1848 the last of the plates appeared, but the project had exhausted Audubon. After 1846 his eyesight was poor and his mind was wandering and it fell to his two sons to complete the project. Audubon was only to live another three years. "These final prints specifically document the senior Audubon's fascination with the disappearing "frontier." Somber images, such as the Entrapped Otter canvas which foregrounds an otter's paw caught in the vice of a large, jagged metal trap, clearly evidenced the a [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Ueber Verbreitung, Beschaffenheit und Entstehung der Korallen-Inseln" [nach Darwin], in Annalen der Physik und Chemie, 1845

      Johannes Barth 1845 - (Darwin, Charles.) "Ueber Verbreitung, Beschaffenheit und Entstehung der Korallen-Inseln" [nach Darwin], in Annalen der Physik und Chemie, 1845, series II volume 64, pp 563-614 (about 15,000 words). ("The distribution, character, and origin of the coral islands.", "after Darwin".) It seems as though this Darwin is rarely mentioned in the usual resources--in fact I have not yet been able to find a mention of them outside of a Google search which finds it in a general index to the second series of the Annalen. Having worked with the Annalen for many years (principally the Annalen from 1799 to the early 1930's) it was my overall impression that the appearance of contributions in the natural sciences were not at all common and had become less so by the time of the Darwin-related paper. Perhaps the lack of reference is due to the unexpected (to me, at least) appearance of the work in the great physics/chemistry journal. In any event, here it is, with a lovely copy of the wonderful map.__+__ PROVENANCE: Provinzial-Gewerbschule zu Aachen (with their small, oval rubber stamp on the title page; then on to the Deutsche Akademie der Luftfahrtforsuchung (with their name stamped in gilt at the spine bottom); and then on to Wright Patterson Air Force Base Field, with their rubber stamp on the page edges (exterior) top and bottom. Lastly, the Library of Congress, with their “surplus” stamp on the rear endpapers.__+__ CONDITION: there are three scratches on the front cover (the largest 3mmx20mm) as well as three spots of heavier wear that has removed some of the design in the marbling on the front board; also, there is some scattered foxing. That said, this is still a solid, VERY GOOD copy, tight and crisp. MAP: 19x28cm, with four old vertical folds, and is printed and trimmed nearly to the borders. There is some occasional and very light foxing, but in general the map is very bright, crisp, and fresh, and no doubt had received very very little attention. The map's condition is FINE. __+__I was surprised to find this long and early (1845) contribution on Darwin and his ambitious work on coral reefs in the generally physical-sciences-heavy Annalen der Physik. The surprise was ever more so because of the illustration for the article--a German version of the coral islands/reefs map that appears as the frontispiece to Darwin's The Structure and Distribution of Coral Reefs.appeared three years earlier in 1842. (Darwin's Journal of Researches., today more commonly known as the Voyage of the Beagle, which was the third volume of Narrative of the Surveying Voyage of His Majesty's Ships Adventure and Beagle. was published in 1839, and his first publication of any kind appeared ten years earlier in 1829; the first German translation of the Narrative appeared in 1845 as Naturwissenschaftliche Reise. As John van Wyhe--the founder and curator of the fantastic resource Darwin Online--points out the German translations were significant because "It was in German.that Darwin influenced the founder of genetics Gregor Mendel, and the pioneering evolutionists August Weismann and Ernst Haeckel"--van Wyhe, "Darwin in Translation".)__+__The original map is titled "Plate 3--Shewing the Distribution of the Different Kinds of Coral Reefs, together with the Position of Active Volcanoes in the Map" and was engraved by J. & C Walker, and printed by Smith & Elder. The Annalen map measures 19x28cm and has no title or indication of engraver.__+__ Here's an appreciation of the map from the University of Maryland's Integration and Application Network, Dr. Bill Dennison, "Ten Classic Maps" "Coral reefs: The map.created by Charles Darwin in 1842.is a masterpiece".

        Die plastischen Operationen, in ihren weitesten Umfange dargestellt und durch Abbildungen erläutert.

      Berlin, A. Hirschwald, 1845, Gr.4, 48 grösstenteils beikolorierten, blattgroßen Kupfertafeln, (1 Bl.), VIII, 179, (1) pp., reich vergoldeter, grüner Maroquineinband in Schuber wie immer etwas fleckig. NIL NISI OPTIMORUM Dieffenbachs unbekannter Operationsatlas!Vorzugsexemplar auf starkem PapierErste und einzige Ausgabe, die Tafeln in exzellenten Original-Kolorit. - Beigelegt eine Kopie des unveröffentlichten dreiseitigen Dankschreibens für die Widmung obigen Werkes an die Autoren von Dieffenbach. Ein rares Text- und Tafelwerk, das in engstem Zusammenhang mit der operativen Tätigkeit Dieffenbachs steht. Schon im Vorwort betonen die Autoren, "täglicher Zeuge von Dieffenbach's genialem Schaffen und Wirken" gewesen zu sein und "gemeinsam die Wunder der plastischen Chirurgie in der Nähe Dieffenbach's beobachtet" zu haben. Wie Lampe in seiner schönen Dieffenbach-Biographie ausführlich darstellt, wäre das Werk des Vaters der plastischen Chirurgie leichter verständlich, "wenn er seine Schilderungen durch Abbildungen, und seien sie auch nur schematischer Art, unterstützt hätte. Dem hat aber wohl der Umstand im Wege gestanden, daß dieser große, phantasiebegabte Künstler .. nur wenig zu zeichnen verstand.... Erst die umfassende Monographie von Fritze und Reich, die unter den Augen des Meisters entstanden ist, hat die oben beklagte Lücke durch Beigabe zahlreicher ... Zeichnungen sowie wertvoller, von H.E.Fritze nach dem Leben gezeichneter Porträts ausgefüllt." Lampe. Dieffenbach hat also bewußt und gezielt zwei seiner hierfür begabtesten Mitarbeiter in Bild und Text publizieren lassen und durch reichliche und frühzeitige Überlassung von Material dafür gesorgt, daß der so inhaltsreiche erste Band seines Lebenswerks mit dem zugehörigen Atlas- und Textband seiner Schüler erscheinen konnte. Dieffenbach schreibt denn auch in dem hier in Kopie beiliegenden Dankschreiben an die Autoren: "Sie haben etwas Ausgezeichnetes geliefert ... Die Gegenstände sind mit wunderbarer Klarheit behandelt, mit den feinsten Fühlfäden haben Sie bei den minutiösesten Operationen immer das herauserkannt worauf es besonders ankommt.. Die Tafeln sind wahre Meisterstücke." Die prächtige Ikonographie von Fritze und Reich ist eines der schönsten, seltensten und wertvollsten Werke, die ein historisch interessierter Plastiker für seine Bibliothek erwerben kann... Wirklich rare, alte wissenschaftliche Bücher steigen schneller, stärker und dauerhafter im Wert als Erzeugnisse der Industriegesellschaft, weil sie unwiederholbar sind! Und "A thing of beauty is a joy forever!" (Keats) Für die Augenheilkunde sind die folgenden Kapitel von besonderem Interesse: Von der Blepharoplastik (Blepharoplastice) (S.43-61). Von der Keratoplastik. Transplantatio corneae (S.62-71). Auf den Tafeln 17 bis 26 werden die Instrumente und augenärztlichen Operationen in 98 Abbildungen nach Amonn, Beer, Bell, Berlinghieri, Blasius, Brach, Celsus, Dieffenbach, Dionis, Fricke, Gräfe, Helling, Himly, Jäger, Jüngken, Marcus, Munck, Quadri, Steinberg, Strauch, Thome und Walther gezeigt. Hermann Eduard Fritze (1811-1866) promovierte 1835 in Berlin. Er praktizierte zuerst in Berlin, und infolge seiner freundschaftlichen Verbindungen mit dortigen Chirurgischen Zelebritäten wie Dieffenbach und Kluge und mit Unterstützung durch dieselben erschien von ihm obenstehendes Abbildungswerk. Er siedelte später nach Neustadt-Eberswalde über. -cf.Pagel Georg Friedrich Otto Reich, zu ... Med. et Chir. Dr.Berol. 1833 geb. zu Berlin d.24.Dec.1807. Er besuchte daselbst das franz. Gymnasium und studierte seit April 1828 zu Berlin. cf.-Callisen XXXI, p.391 *First and only edition. The 48 plates, mostly hand colored, engraved by Steglich, containing hundreds of separate illustrations. "This work is not only important from a didactic and artistic point of view, it became something like a textbook for future generations of plastic surgeons" Gabka & Vaubel 1421 also 24-26, 31-32, 36-37, 59-60 reproducing exemplarily from the 48 mostly hand colored plates). Since Dieffenbach never published an atlas specifically on plastic surgery. Fritze & Reich's book fills this all-important gap in recording the achievement of Dieffenbach and his students. Fritze and Reich studied under Dieffenbach. This is the first extensively illustrated general treatise on plastic surgery published in Europe. A legendary Classic of Plastic surgery, not often seen on the market. Garrison & Morton, No. 5746.4 Waller 3275 Zeis 524 Patterson I, 544 N.U.C. cites only three copies.

        Lecons sur les maladies de la peau professées à l' école de médecine de Paris..

      Paris, Labé, (1845)-1856, Groß-Folio (54 x 36 cm), I Bl., 233, 1 Bl., mit 60 feinen handcol. Punktiermanier-Farbkupferstiche, in frischen Bögen wie ausgeliefert, erster Lieferungsumschlag vorhanden. Der grosse Cazenave - ein Meisterwerk, das schönste Bilderwerk der Dermatologie! Erste Ausgabe dieser ungewöhlichen schönen und wohl seltensten der großen französischen Ikonografien der Hautkrankheiten. Während der berühmte Atlas von Alibert öfter angeboten wird, ist das vorliegende Werk ein rares Cimelium. In Lieferungen über 12 Jahre erschienen, sind vollständige Exemplare sehr selten Cazenave bringt nach der Systematik von Alibert, Plenck, Willan, Biett und Cazenave 60 (!) Bilder von Hautkrankheiten und Syphilis, darunter auch ein schönes Bild eines 'Lupus érythémateux'. Diese Krankheit z.B. beschrieb Cazenave erstmals in seinem 'Abrégé' von 1838 und benannte ihn 1851 in seinen 'Annales'. Nach Richter ist das Werk erst 1856 vollständig erschienen. Die Bilder sind von Bocourt (43) und Jadin (2) gezeichnet und in Punktiermanier in Kupfer gestochen, in bräunlicher Farbe gedruckt und nachkoloriert. Goldschmid erwähnt einen Gerard als Coloristen. Die Bilder sind in Zeichnung und Farbe durchweg naturwahr und von großer künstlerischer Wirkung! Goldschmid hält 'den großen Cazenave' für 'eines der besten und schönsten der uns bekannten' Werke. "In Frankreich am Hospital Saint Louis folgt Willans Lehren der Nachfolger Jean Aliberts (1766-1837), der Schweizer Laurent Théodore Biett (1781-1840), der nordische, sachliche Schüler und Gegenpol des lebhaften, geistvollen Südfranzosen. - Biett hatte bei seinem Besuche in England Willans Lehren kennengelernt. Bietts Vorlesungen wurden von seinem Schüler und späteren Nachfolger P.L.A. Cazenave (1795-1877) zusammen mit H.E. Schedel in dem "Abrégé pratique des maladies de la peau" (1828) in einem Buche niedergelegt. Wie Willan unterscheidet Biett 8 Ordnungen, denen er aber noch weitere 7 von Krankheiten zufügt, die ihr Wesen in keine der oben genannten Ordnungen bringen läßt, nämlich: Lupus, Pellagra, Bouton d' Aleppo, Syphilides, Purpura, Elephantiasis des Arabes, Kéloide. Goldschmid (176) considered Cazenave's atlas of 60 handcoloured plates one of the best and most beautiful he knew, comparing it with Cruveilhier's masterpiece of pathological anatomy of the same period. The skilfully rendered plates, very naturalistic in their drawing and colouring, are really all equally worth of note, but Goldschmid singles out plates showing erythema, chronic eczema, pemphigus chronicus, impetigo, psoriasis, rupia syph, acne, favus, elephantiasis and lupus. Cazenave was among the first to classify skin diseases on an anatomical basis. He gave classic descriptions of pemphigus foliaceus, known as "Cazenave's disease", and of lupus erythematosus or "Cazenave's lupus", and founded the first journal devoted entirely to dermatology. Ehring, p.154 Schönfeld, p.44 Rare. Not in Waller, Osler or Reynolds.

        Cours de microscopie. Text and atlas

      Paris: Bailliere, 1845. Donné, Alfred François (1801-78). Cours de microscopie complémentaire des études médicales . . . Text and atlas. [4], ii, [2, incl. errata], 550, pp. (text); 30pp. plus 20 plates engraved by Ouvret after micro-daguerreotypes taken by Léon Foucault (1819-68), original tissue guards present. Paris: J.-B. Bailličre [etc.], 1844-45. 214 x 130 mm. (text); 436 x 300 mm. (atlas). Text in 19th century quarter morocco, mottled boards, light edgewear; atlas in original printed boards, new morocco spine, light rubbing and edgewear, a few minor stains; the two preserved in a cloth folding box. Minor foxing, text with library stamp on title and 3 or 4 other leaves, atlas with small library stamp on title and verso of each plate but very good overall. First Edition of a major landmark in the fields of hematology, oncology, bacteriology, medical microscopy and photomicrography. Donné, a French public health physician, began teaching his pioneering course on medical microscopy in 1837, a time when the medical establishment remained largely unconvinced of the microscope's usefulness as a diagnostic and investigative tool. In July 1839 Louis Daguerre, one of the inventors of photography, announced to the Académie des Sciences his "daguerreotype" process for creating finely detailed photographic images on specially prepared glass plates. Donné immediately embraced this new art and within a few months had created not only the first documented photographic portrait in Europe, but also the earliest method of preparing etched plates from daguerreotypes. Donné resolved to incorporate photography into his microscopy course, and in February 1840 he presented to the Académie his first photographic pictures of natural objects as seen through the microscope. "It was Alfred Donné who foresaw the helpful role that projections of microscopic pictures could play during lectures on micrography" (Dreyfus, p. 38). Over the next few years Donné continued to refine his photomicrography methods with the help of his assistant, Léon Foucault (who would go on to have a distinguished career as a physicist). In 1844 Donné published his Cours de microscopie complémentaire des études médicales (Course of microscopy complementary to medical studies), following it a year later with an atlas illustrated with 86 engravings copied from micro-daguerreotypes taken by Foucault. This extraordinary work was the first biomedical textbook to be illustrated with images made from photomicrographs. Among its noteworthy images are the first microphotographs of human blood cells and platelets, and the first photographic illustration of Trichomonas vaginalis, the protozoon responsible for vaginal infections, which Donné had discovered in 1836. The text volume of the Cours contains the first description of the microscopic appearance of leukemia, which Donné had observed in blood taken from both an autopsy and a living patient. His observations mark the first time that leukemia was linked with abnormal blood pathology: "There are conditions in which white cells seem to be in excess in the blood. I found this fact so many times, it is so evident in certain patients, that I cannot conceive the slightest doubt in this regard. One can find in some patients such a great number of these cells that even the least experienced observer is greatly impressed. I had an opportunity of seeing these in a patient under Dr. Rayer at the Hôpital de la Charité. . . . The blood of this patient showed such a number of white cells that I thought his blood was mixed with pus, but in the end, I was able to observe a clear-cut difference between these cells, and the white cells . . . " (p. 135; translation from Thorburn, pp. 379-80). The following year this abnormal blood condition was recognized as a new disease by both John Hughes Bennett (a former student of Donné's) and Rudolph Virchow. Garrison-Morton.com 267.1, 3060.1.

        MY ADVENTURES

      London: Henry Colburn, 1845. FIRST EDITION y. These volumes are significant both for their contents and their coverings. Colonel Archibald Montgomery Maxwell (d. 1845) received his commission in 1801 and saw active duty in the Calabria campaign (1806) and the Italian Campaign (1816). He must have performed well in battle, for he was promoted to colonel and made a knight of the Royal Guelphic Order. However, he is not the sort to bore us with laboriously detailed accounts of these activities. Instead, he shares his observations on Italian life and customs, his adventures with various opera dancers, and, in a more serious vein, his interviews with Napoleon on Elba and with King Charles V of Spain. Sadly, Maxwell did not long survive the publication of his memoir: the "Armagh Guardian" reported his death at Newcastle on 21 May 1845, "after a few days' illness, deeply regretted by his brother officers, and all who knew him." The ornate binding would have been specially commissioned by someone intending to give the set as a gift, and the fact that the volumes have come down to us in such fine condition testifies to how welcome their presentation must have been. James Nelson Palmer, who may well have paid for the binding, was probably the clergyman with that name of Breamore Rectory in Hampshire, who owned Church House in Headington, Oxford, beginning in 1849. In any case, such presentation bindings from this period are uncommonly seen.. 200 x 114 mm. (7 7/8 x 4 1/2"). Two volumes. FIRST EDITION.

Front free endpaper of volume I with ink presentation inscription; "Reginald Porter / from his sincere friend / James Nelson Palmer / On his leaving Eton / Xmas 3rd 1846."

        A Complete Series of Twenty Etchings on India Paper, designed to illustrate the serial publication of Douglas Jerrold's novel The History of St. Giles and St. James, as published in Jerrold's Shilling Magazine.

      1845-47 20 India proofs, 12.5 x 18 cm, each mounted in thick grey board, 20.5 x 25 cm, loosely housed in scarlet cloth folder & matching morocco slip-case, titled on spine 'Etchings to "Douglas Jerrold's Shilling Magazine". 1845-47'. Armorial bookplate of Herman Le Roy Edgar.These high-quality etchings represent all 20 illustrations printed in the first four volumes of Jerrold's Shilling Magazine, 1845-1847. Subsequent volumes were for some reason unillustrated. With a 41-line ALS from Leech to 'My Dear Leigh', very probably Leech's great friend the comic writer Percival Leigh. Dated Aug. 27, 1861, and addressed from Lowestoft, Suffolk, Leech begs his friend 'give [him]self a day or two's holiday and us great pleasure by running down here'. He tells Leigh 'it is a place you would like immensely - everything that you could desire in the way of sailing, bathing and walking about, to say nothing about a very good tap of ale ...'. He goes on to tempt Leigh with the prospect of a swim, informing him 'it is not necessary (except for the ladies) to go through the ceremony of engaging a bathing machine - you just [deleted] of your things and walk into the sea as you feel inclined'. A nice warm letter between two lifelong friends who studied together and collaborated on several works.
