        The Natural History of the Human Species

      Edinburgh - W. H. Lizars, 1848 Book. Very Good. Hardcover. First edition. A first edition of this scarce Victorian polygenistic examination of the human species. With an engravedportrait frontispiece of the author and additional vignette title. Seven black and white plates and twenty-sevencoloured hand-finished chromolithographic plates to the rear(collate complete). Intended as a supplementry volume to Sir William Jardine's Naturalist's Library. Binders stamp of Otheran, London to verso of front free-endpaper. Charles Hamilton Smith, (17761859), soldier, spy, illustrator, antiquary and natural historian. From a very early age, Smith had industriously sketched and accumulated data. His interests were wide, so that his sketchbooks included historical, zoological, archaeological, and topographical subjects. His interest in such topics persisted through his time as a soldier; after retirement they became all-absorbing. His manuscript notes (and thousands of watercolour drawings) were made mostly for his own instruction and that of any student who asked to see them. Smith's numerous publications, with his lectures at the Plymouth Athenaeum, made him well known. His industry enabled him to master several disciplines and his accuracy of observation assisted him in the making of accurate drawings of his subjects. Interested in history, as well as the natural sciences, he often gave information to the theatre managers William Charles Macready (17931873) and Charles John Kean (18111868) and his brother Edmund (17871833) on the correct costumes for their productions. Smith's authorship of historical books on war included the translation of accounts of the Seven Years' War in Germany, a piece on the military exploits of the duke of Marlborough (for Coxe's biography), and a narrative of the retreat of Napoleon from Moscow, which he wrote in French. He also contributed articles on the subject of war to encyclopaedias. Many of these works were illustrated from his own drawings and watercolours. The illustrations in his natural history books were also based on his own original sketches. Some of Smith's drawings were used for the illustrations in a number of volumes which he wrote for Sir William Jardine's Naturalist's Library: two volumes of the Natural History of Dogs (1839 and 1840), the Natural History of Horses (1841), and Introduction to the Mammalia (1842). A Natural History of the Human Species (1848) was designed to complement these volumes, and included his engraved portrait for the frontispiece. Besides these major titles, he wrote and illustrated numerous articles for scientific journals. DNBCondition: Rebacked in calf with original morocco and marbled paper boards. Externally sound, the spine excellent, rubbing to the older leather and paper. Internally, firmly bound. Generally bright and clean throughout, very slight age-toning. Overall: VERY GOOD INDEED..

Jules Joseph Auguste Laurens, né à Carpentras (1825-1901) est un artiste-peintre et lithographe français.

        Beiträge zur praktischen Chirurgie. Nebst Bericht über die chirurgisch-augenärztliche Klinik der Königlichen Universität zu Halle für die Zeit von 1831-1847.

      - Berlin, Verlag A.Förstner, 1848, Gr.8°, XXXIX, (1), 314, (1), Holzschnitte und vier lith. Tafeln, im Halbleinenband der Zeit. Erste Ausgabe der 'Beiträge zur practischen Chirurgie'. Ernst Blasius beschäftigt sich in diesem seltenen und kostbaren Band vorwiegend mit Fragen der plastischen Chirurgie, insbesondere 'Bildung der Oberlippe', 'Operation der mit Wolfsrachen verbundener Hasenscharte (nebst Bemerkungen über diese Missbildung)' und 'Operatio colobomatis palpebrae'. - - Das Werk ist nicht nur dem 'Andenken Dieffenbachs" gewidmet sondern setzt sich insbesondere mit Dieffenbach auseinander, und so schreibt Blasius in seinem Vorwort folgende Bemerkung: "Ich habe dieses Buch dem Andenken Dieffenbachs gewidmet und wünsche damit nochmals meine hohe Achtung gegen den Mann auszudrücken, welcher mit seiner Genialität den Theil der Chirurgie ausgeübt und cultiviert hat, dessen theoretische und praktische Betreibung meine Thätigkeit zu allen Zeiten am lebhaftesten angeregt hat. Ein Abschnitt dieses Buch enthält eine entschiedene Opposition gegen Dieffenbach gerade in demjenigen Theile der operativen Praxis, in welchen derselbe am meisten geglänzt hat, in der chirurgischen Praxis; ich schrieb dies, als noch Niemand von Dieffenbachs Tode eine eine Ahnung haben konnte, ich schrieb die Opposition dem Lebenden gegenüber; über die Verfahrungsweisen eines Verstorbenen würde mein Urtheil zwar nicht anders ausgefallen, aber vielleicht hier und da anders ausgedrückt worden sein.". - First Edition. Blasius was one of the most active German practioners of plastic surgery in the 19th century, developing, and or improving operations for reconstructing the nose, ear, lip, cheek, mouth and eyelid, as well as methods for removing scars and repairing defects of the genitals. He recommended against using remnants of the old nose or the hairy scalp in rhinoplasty, and attempted to create mucous membrane linings for his new noses by transplanting pieces of the upper lip. Three of the four plates in his "Beiträge" illustrate plastic operations - rhinoplasty, cheiloplasty and the removal of contracted scar tissue from the neck. Scare - Zeis 484 (6 Einträge).
