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."

HELL, Xavier Hommaire de.
HELL, Xavier Hommaire de. Travels in the Steppes of the Caspian Sea, the Crimea, the Caucasus, &c. London, Chapman and Hall, 1847. 8vo. Original purple pebble-grained cloth, lettered and ornamented in gilt, all edges gilt; pp. viii, 436, steel-engraved frontispiece, retaining tissue guard; hinges reinforced, light wear to extremities, light offsetting from endpapers; otherwise very good with school prize inscription to front free endpaper.First English edition, the rare issue with frontispiece. What had been planned as a geological expedition turned into an ethnographic and sociological reconnaissance tour of Southern Russia and adjacent provinces. Ignace Xavier Morand Hommaire de Hell, an engineer who had built a suspension bridge in Istanbul and a lighthouse on the Black Sea coast for the Ottoman Empire travelled with his wife Adèle Hériot, who contributed much to the narrative. A few years after Astolphe de Custine's sensational report on Russia had been smuggled out, Hommaire de Hell states that 'Our work is published under no man's patronage; we have kept ourselves independent of all extraneous influence; and in frankly pointing out what struck us as faulty in the social institutions of the Muscovite empire, we think we evince our gratitude for the hospitable treatment we received in Russia ...'

Paris, Librairie d'Amyot, 1847 1 volume in-8 (22,5 x 13,5 cm) de 444 pages. Reliure anglaise de l'époque signée Hollings. Demi-veau brun, dos à faux-nerfs richement orné, pièce de titre de maroquin rouge, tranches marbrées. Quelques rousseurs. Reliure légèrement frottée, coins légèrement usés, un coin déformé, dos très décoratif, intérieur très frais. Deuxième édition, la première sous ce titre de ce livre initialement paru en 1845 chez Curmer sous le titre l'Irlande au XIXe siècle. Ouvrage qui se présente sous la forme de 20 longues lettres adressées à divers correspondants. "J. Prevost visita l'Irlande dans les années 1840 à la veille de la Grande Famine. Il nous laisse des comptes rendus fort détaillés de ses périples aux quatre coins du pays. Sur l'évocation de l'Irlande historique et géographique de l'époque, il greffe des portraits fort vivants des Irlandais eux-mêmes, allant de Daniel O'Connell à la paysannerie. Ses écrits sont imbus d'une admiration sans bornes pour l'Irlande et les Irlandais, ainsi que, de façon symétrique, d'une critique parfois féroce de l'Angleterre, source pour lui des nombreux maux de l'Irlande. Il conviendrait, sans doute, de situer ces textes dans le contexte de l'identité de Prévost lui-même : citoyen français, grand admirateur des idéaux de la Révolution française et critique acharné de l'Angleterre, ennemie de tous temps de sa patrie bien-aimée. … [Click Below for Full Description]

Pyrker, Johann Ladislaus, österr. Dichter u. kath. Bischof (1772-1847).
Erlau, 8. I. 1847. - „Johann Ladislaus Pyrker ist der Abkömmling eines alten Tiroler Adelsgeschlechts. Er wuchs zweisprachig im Komitat Stuhlweißenburg auf, wo sein Vater Gutsverwalter war. Er widmete sich anfangs auf der Akademie zu Fünfkirchen/Pécs philosophischen und philologischen Studien, trat aber nach einigen Jahren in das Zisterzienserstift zu Lilienfeld in Niederösterreich ein. Nach vollendeten theologischen Studien im Seminar zu St. Pölten erhielt er 1796 die Priesterweihe, wurde 1807 Pfarrer in Türnitz, 1812 Abt des Stifts Lilienfeld, 1818 Bischof von Zips und 1821 Patriarch zu Venedig sowie Primas von Dalmatien. Die Bischofsweihe empfing er am 14. April 1819 [.]. Seit 1827 war Pyrker Erzbischof von Erlau/Eger und Erbobergespan der Heveser Gespanschaft. Dabei trat er überall als Gründer und Förderer von Schulen, Bildungsinstituten und karitativen Einrichtungen hervor [.]. Sein literarisches Werk umfasst historische Dramen, an Klopstock anknüpfende Patriarchaden, sowie historische Versepen in rhetorisch-klassizistischem Stil. Seine Dichtungen sind von nationalem Pathos und Religion geprägt. Die meisten sind in dem Kloster Lilienfeld entstanden. Er machte sich überdies auch als Kunstmäzen verdient (Josef Danhauser). So vermachte er seine Gemäldesammlung dem Ungarischen Nationalmuseum. Pyrker gilt als ein Förderer Grillparzers und Schuberts. Dieser widmete ihm 1821 ein Liederheft (op. 4), das u.a. die berühmte Komposition ‚Der Wanderer‘ enthielt. Auch Grillparzers Gedicht ‚Abschied aus Gastein‘ ist Pyrker zugedacht, als Dankeszeichen für Bei … [Click Below for Full Description]

Spines slightly faded, rubbed to extremities, several minor scrapes to leather covers, corners bumped. Internally quite bright and clean. William Whewell, (1794-1866), college head and writer on the history and philosophy of science, "Whewell's two major works, History of the Inductive Sciences (3 vols., 1837) and The Philosophy of the Inductive Sciences (2 vols., 1840; 2nd edn 1847), were appreciated as considerable achievements when they appeared. Even his critics drew upon the History, but the Philosophy was seen by some as too close to Immanuel Kant's idealist epistemology. Herschel and Jones, for example, regarded this as inconsistent with the empirical character of scientific inquiry and a threat to its claim to offer true descriptions of the natural world. Today, however, Whewell's work is seen as posing some of the central issues of the philosophy of science the relationship between theory and observation, the role of imagination and hypotheses, and the concept of theoretical revolutions, all supported by appeals to the historical record" (O … [Click Below for Full Description]

ORFILA, BLANDIN, CAVENTOU et LONDE
Paris, Jean-Baptiste Baillière, 1847, in-8, de 24 pages, exemplaire broché, couverture jaune imprimée en noir, Unique édition de ce rapport présenté à l'Académie de Médecine le 16 mars 1847 dans lequel il s'agit, pour la commission (composée d'Orfila, Blandin, Caventou et Londe), de "constater la propriété conservatrice des substances proposées par MM. Dupré, Gannal et Suscquet, après avoir fait pratiquer sous ses yeux un embaumement par chacun d'eux, avoir fait enterrer les cadavres ainsi préparés et avoir procédé à leur exhumation au bout d'un certain laps de temps." Après observation, la commission peut conclure à la supériorité de la substance utilisée par Sucquet (probablement du chlorure de zinc) : une conservation indéfinie parfaite. A la toute fin, les commissaires attirent l'attention de l'Académie sur l'existence des travaux de Gorini qui, grâce à une préparation d'embaumement, parvient à créer des pièces semblables à des exécutions en cire des parties du corps. Malgré un feuillet volant, correct exemplaire, portant sur la première de couverture le cachet du "Commissaire de Police - ville de Paris" et la signature d'un commissaire de police, datée du 24 mai 1850.

Endicott, Charles M.
Salem: Printed at the Observer Office 1847. First Edition. 116 pages. 4to. Publisher's original cloth. This copy has the bookplate of William Goddard Weld, and an inscription on the back of the frontispiece: "Wm G. Weld with the regards of Chas. E. Endicott" (perhaps a relative of the author). Minor foxing throughout, archival tissue strengthening to the gutter where the frontispiece is inserted. Crinkling to the flyleaf where the bookplate is affixed. Cloth. A fairly scarce work, with only 15 examples in OCLC/Worldcat as of this listing. William Goddard Weld was a major philanthropist, donating significant collections to both the Museum of Fine Art in Boston as well as the Peabody Essex Museum in Essex Massachusetts. Given his interest in travel, history (he collected early Japanese military history) it is not surprising that he sought out an early history of the area. Very Good.
