Lorm, Hieronymus (d. i. Heinrich Landesmann), Schriftsteller (1821–1902).
O. O. u. D. - 1 S. 8vo. „Geist des Weibes ist einzig: Verständnis [.] Zum Verständnis des Weibes, des hochbegabten empfindet | Sich der schaffende Geist wieder vereint mit der Welt". – Durch regimekritische Essays 1847 zur Flucht aus Wien genötigt, kehrte Lorm nach Ende der Revolution zurück, wurde Redakteur der „Wiener Zeitung" und durch mehrere Feuilletonromane auch bald schon einem größeren Publikum bekannt. Sein lyrisches Werk ist wesentlich vom Einfluß Schopenhauers geprägt. Seit 1856 in Baden bei Wien, später in Dresden und Brünn lebend, erfand der bereits von Jugend an sehschwache, 1880 jedoch völlig erblindete Schriftsteller die noch heute gültige Handtastensprache (das sog. Lormsche Fingeralphabet).

WOOD, James R. (1816-82).
- This pioneering New York physician joined Bellevue Hospital in 1847 and worked his way up to chief surgeon, along the way helping to found Bellevue Medical College in 1861 and creating the first ambulance service and the first training school for nurses; he championed the "Dissecting Bill," a statute that helped provide cadavers for medical dissection and research for medical students, thus eliminating the practice of body snatching and paving the way for instruction using actual bodies as well as textbooks. LS, 1p, (lettersheet), 5" X 8", New York, NY, 1862 April 20. Addressed to Thomas C. Acton (1823-98, New York City police commissioner, politician, reformer). Very good. Bit of sporadic age toning; original folds (none weakened). Wood tells the new (appointed 1860) police commissioner that "The bearer Thomas Flynn is anxious of procuring some employment -- I have known him along while and believe him to be an honest worthy and industrious young man -- If you can aid him in any way I shall feel much obliged." Boldly signed in thick brown ink. Wood's plea may just have worked, for only a few years later one Thomas Flynn appears in reports issued by the city comptroller's office. An interesting and early piece from the year after the Medical College's founding. [Attributes: Signed Copy]

PERCEVAL A. P. Caussin de
1847. First edition. With 15 folding genealogical tables. 3 vols. 8vo. Contemporary quarter calf with mottled paper-covered boards, red morocco labels with gilt lettering to spines; upper joint of vol. 2 splitting at head, very good otherwise. Mild, scattered foxing throughout (especially to first and last pages of each volume). xii, 424; 702; [iv], 603, [1]blank pp. Paris, Firmin Didot frères, A nice copy of Perceval's early history of the Arab tribes. The first two volumes describe the period from the end of Jahiliyyah to the Hegira of 622 (Julian calendar). The third volume then accounts for the period after the Hegira through to the early Muslim conquests. A remarkable achievement for the time, the Essai. was celebrated as ?a trustworthy guide through a tangled mass of tradition? (Encyclopaedia Brittanica 11th ed., 1911. V, 558.). Later scholarship reflects that Perceval, eager to form a fluid history, too readily mixed fact and fiction in his weaving together of 7th and 8th century Arabic sources. One 20th century reviewer states that his approach did not necessarily lead to an accurate historical account, but rather ?the retrospective self view of seventh and eighth-century Arabs? (p.75. International Journal of Middle East Studies. Volume 3, Issue 1. January, 1972). Provenance: The Library of the Ducs de Luynes from the Château of Dampierre. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

COPPEE, Lieut. H.
Philadelphia: P.S. Duval Lith, 1847. unbound. Battle plan. Uncolored lithograph. Image measures 12.25 x 19 inches. This battle plan from the Mexican-American War is an uncolored military survey of the Mexican defense lines and the U.S. lines of attack at Cerro Gordo in the Valley of Mexico. The battle of Cerro Gordo was one of the major battles during the Mexican American War. The map notes important roads, troop position, camps, batteries and rivers. Topography is beautifully rendered. After Major General Winfield Scott captured Veracruz, he advanced towards Mexico City. To halt his advance, General Antonio Lopez de Santa Anna, who was commanding the Mexican forces, prepared fortifications at Cerro Gordo. The battle resulted in a victory for the United States. General Santa Anna was forced to flee without his artificial leg. The leg was captured by the U.S. troops and remains on display at the Illinois State Military Museum. The survey for this map was conducted by topographical engineers Major Turnbull and Captain McClellan and drawn by Lieutenant H. Coppee. The map is in good condition with minor wear along the fold lines. Minor damage near top margin, repaired on verso, not affecting printed image. Some cracks are visible near the left border, repaired on verso. Map has been cleaned and lined. This map is a fascinating relic of this significant period of history.

AGASSIZ, Louis.
Paris, Masson, 1847. in-folio (mm 485x340), 9 litografie ( I-IX di cui 1 a colori e due a doppia pagina) e 3 litografie a colori di C. Castan (num A-C), brossura editoriale in mezza tela verde, fregi e titolo entro cornice al piatto anteriore, al centro di quello posteriore motto “Alere Flamma” (lievi tracce d'usura e qualche macchia). Le planches sono vedute, spaccati e tavole tecniche interamente dedicate al ghiacciaio dell'Aar. Questo rarissimo Album è il risultato degli studi che Agassiz compì sulle Alpi bernesi, dove costruì una capanna e vi abitò per un po' di tempo per avere la possibilità di compiere delle ricerche sulla conformazione e sui movimenti del ghiaccio. Parte delle sue osservazioni confluirono nel 1840 negli "Etudes sur les glaciers", di cui il presente Album è evidentemente una integrazione. La sua estrema rarità, di gran lunga superiore a quella degli Etudes, è dovuta al fatto che l'autore, mentre l'opera era in fase di pubblicazione, partì definitivamente per gli Stati Uniti e non fece mai più ritorno in Europa. Agassiz quindi non potè più seguirne la stampa, la diffusione e il completamento editoriale (essendo questa una "première partie") rendendo questo Album quasi introvabile. In perfetto stato di conservazione, assai fresco.. Perret 0020..

SIMPSON, Sir James Young (1811-1870)
London: Longman, Brown, Green, and Longmans, 1847. First edition. Light rubbing; light browning to text, generally very good/From the Collection of Allan B. Kirsner, M.D. 8vo. Simpson's paper is on pp. 934-37. Entire volume: [1], 1172 pp. Contemporary half calf, marbled boards, black morocco lettering-piece. "In an attempt to find an anesthetic less irritating than ether, Simpson discovered the advantages of chloroform. He had previously used ether with great benefit in midwifery, but now substituted chloroform, being the first to do so" (Garrison-Morton-Norman 5657). The paper appeared simultaneously in The Lancet (v. 2, 1847, p. 549). First announcements of surgical operations under general anesthesia appeared in October 1846. Since that announcement, Simpson began to search for substances as good as or better than the American ethyl ether. While rifling through papers on his desk, he found a vial of a colorless liquid sent to him by the German apothecary, Justus von Leibig. It was chloroform, and Simpson and his associates, Keith and Duncan, successfully utilized it. Simpson immediately recommended its use to alleviate pains in childbirth. He presented the results of his experiments with chloroform to the Medico-Chirurgical Sociery in Edinburgh on 10 November 1847; they published his scarce first report. This is his second report on chloroform. On page 906 in the volume is the preliminary announcement: "Discovery of a substitute for ether vapour."
