        On cancerous and cancroid growth.

      Eidinburgh: Sutherland and Knox, 1849, 8, XII, 260 pp., "with 190 illustrations copied from nature and drawn on wood by the author", orig. Leinenband mit Stempeln der "Library Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland" auf Titel und Seiten. First Edition!"In Bennett's most important work, "On Cancerous and Cancroid Growths", 1849, microscopic findings are presented for the first time in a tumor work in the English-speaking world. Bennett defines the role of the microscope." G. DhomDer herausragende Vertreter der Edinburgher Schule, der die Einführung des Mikroskops in die Medizin Großbritanniens wesentlich gefordert hat, ist aber John Hughes Bennett (1812-1875). Bennett hat vor seinem Studium eine Lehre bei dem Chirurgen Segdwick durchlaufen. 1833 beginnt er in Edinburgh, Medizin zu studieren und promoviert dort 1837. Zwei Jahre verbringt er in Paris und auf deutschen Universitäten. In dieser Zeit publiziert er zahlreiche Artikel, unter anderem im 'Bulletin de la Society Anatomique de Paris', hauptsächlich über Affektionen des Gehirns, des Rückenmarks und der Nerven. Im Jahr seiner Rückkehr nach Edinburgh, 1841, erscheint seine Schrift "On the employment of the microscope in medical studies'. In der Einführung sagt Bennett, dass die große Bedeutung mikroskopischer Untersuchungen für die Anatomie, Physiologie und Pathologie beginnt, allgemein verstanden zu werden. Er weist auf A. Donné in Paris hin, dessen Kurs er besucht hat und auf die großen Entdeckungen auf dem Gebiete der Histologie, die in Deutschland gemacht worden seien:"There the microscope is so highly appreciated, that numerous private courses of lectures are given on histology, in which the use and management of the instrument are taught - though that not only is a knowledge of the anatomy of texture very general in Germany, even among students, and that to an extent which would surprise an Englishman but a good acquaintance with this demanded by examining boards, from all those who present themselves for medical diplomas."Bennett hält es deshalb für notwendig, diese Fortschritte auch seiner berühmten Edinburgh Universität nahe zu bringen, damit deren Schuler nicht gezwungen seien, sich im Ausland damit vertraut zu machen. Er weist auf die Zellenlehre von Schleiden und Schwann hin. Auf dem Gebiete der Pathologie sei der Gebrauch des Mikroskops absolut notwendig. Dabei stelle sich schließlich auch die Frage, ob die Kenntnis mikroskopischer Strukturen uns auch befähige, Krankheiten zu heilen? Seine Hörer würden vielleicht diese Frage stellen, ob dies auch von Nutzen für ihre Patienten sei und ob sich damit ihre Praxis vermehre? Bennett meint dazu, niemand könne Fortschritte in der Behandlung einer Krankheit erzielen, ohne sich eine Idee von ihrer Natur zu machen. Nach Bennetts Auffassung sollte ein Mikroskop in der Hand jedes Praktikers sein. Er empfiehlt dazu ein tragbares Modell, das auch an das Bett des Kranken mitgenommen werden könne, wie es bereits Donné entwickelt hatte.1845 erscheint Bennetts Bericht über einen Fall von Leukämie. Es ist jene Beobachtung, über die Rudolf Virchow dann den bekannten Prioritätsstreit führt.In Bennetts wichtigstem Werk, 'On Cancerous and cancroid growths' 1849, werden erstmals im englischsprachigen Raum mikroskopische Befunde in einem Geschwulstwerk vorgelegt. Bennett definiert die Rolle des Mikroskops:"The only physical proof we can arrive at of the existence of cancer, is by means of the microscope not that this instrument in itself capable even in the most expert hands of doing anything, but conjoint with the knowledge of the symptoms, progress of the case, form and appearance of the morbid growth, it offers us an additional and most valuable means of prosecuting our enquiries".Bennett widerspricht damit energisch Johannes Müller, der dem Mikroskop bekanntlich in der Geschwulstdiagnostik keine praktische Bedeutung beimisst. Ja, er setzt sich sogar bereits für die intraoperative Schnellschnittdiagnose ein, um zum Beispiel zu prüfen, ob bei der Exzision eines Tumors die Schnittränder tumorfrei waren: Ein erfahrener Histologe, so Bennett, könne eine solche Untersuchung in 30 Sekunden machen! Bennetts Geschwulstwerk beruht auf der Beobachtung und Schilderung von 56 Fällen. Bei 29 handelt es sich um die Untersuchung von Operationspräparaten. Dem damaligen Stand der Technik entsprechend, werden ungefärbte zytologische Präparate von Exsudaten und Abstriche von frischen Schnittflachen von Tumoren untersucht, aber auch Schnitte mit dem Valentin-Doppelmesser hergestellt. In seinen Auffassungen folgt Bennett ausdrücklich und konsequent Lebert. Dabei wird der Begriff "cancroid" für alle irgendwie geweblich differenzierten Geschwülste verwendet, für Mammatumoren und Speicheldrüsengeschwulste ebenso wie für chondromatose Geschwülste oder für ein Meningeom. Der Begriff "cancer" bleibt den ganz undifferenzierten, rein zelligen Tumoren vorbehalten, zum Beispiel einem Hodenkrebs, der vermutlich ein Seminom ist. Aus den Abbildungen Bennetts geht deutlich die Sorgfalt seiner Untersuchungen hervor. So bemerkt er bei seiner ersten Beobachtung, einem skirrhosen Brustkrebs, bei einer 37-jahrigen Schneiderin, dass er das Praparat 3 Tage lang untersucht und zahlreiche Zeichnungen gemacht habe.Natürlich ist auch Bennett zugleich Kliniker und Pathologe. Nach seiner Rückkehr nach Edinburgh vom Kontinent führt er mikroskopische Kurse und den poliklinischen Unterricht ein. Als Pathologe ist er am Royal Infirmary tatig. Zugleich steht er einem "Institut für Medizin" vor, einer spezifisch schottischen Einrichtung aus dem 18. Jahrhundert, die aus Leyden übernommen wurde. Das Institut wird im 19. Jahrhundert zum Lehrstuhl für Physiologie, den Bennett ab 1848 einnimmt. Ab 1852 ist er auch Herausgeber des 'Edinburgh Monthly Journal of Medical Sciences', ab 1855 'Edinburgh Medical Sciences'. Bennett ist selbst ein aüßerst fruchtbarer Publizist. Seine 'Clinical lectures on the principles and practice of medicine' werden zu einem weit verbreiteten und in mehrere Sprachen übersetzten Lehrbuch, das 5 Auflagen in Großbritannien und 6 in den Vereinigten Staaten erlebt." Georg Dhom, Geschichte der Histopathologie (2001), pp.450-454

        The Book of Doctrine & Covenants, of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints; selected from the Revelations of God. By Joseph Smith President. [The Book of Mormon]

      Liverpool: Orson Pratt. Printed by R James.. Very Good-. 1849. Second European Edition. Hardback. Rare copy. With index and dated revelations in front of volume. In original binding and in very good condition: Blind stamped buckram, sixteen mo., 16x10.5cm, errata slip bound in. William Huskins' copy with his name in contemporary ink to paste-down. Light unobtrusive cracking of inner joints, very small chip to head of lower board, faint mark to upper board, two small brown spots to endpaper. 5,000 printed. ; After an unsuccessful attempt to publish in 1833, the first edition appeared in 1835 and later editions incorporated additional revelations and reference aids. In February 1841 in Liverpool, some 4000 reprints of the 1837 Kirtland edition were printed and it was from the plates of the 'European' edition that subsequent Latter-Day Saint editions would descend. This 1849 'Second European Edition' published by Apostle Orson Pratt and printed by R James moved the index to the front of the volume (in the present volume the index is headed 'Index' and not 'Contents' as noted by the Maxwell Inst. and includes the chronology of revelations) along with other format changes which were retained for many later editions. Five thousand copies were printed and George Q Cannon used it for his translation for the Hawaii edition. The Nauvoo edition had been printed in 1844. This copy was probably published around November 1849. Citing from the Latter-Day Saints' Millennial Star Vol. II, No 10 May 15th, 1849: 'The Book of Doctrine and Covenants are all gone, but soon will be reprinted'. From the same journal and volume, No. 22 November 15th 1849 'The Doctrine and Covenants' are now ready. An additional index has been formed in the order of the date in which the several revelations were given." ; xxiii[i]+336pp pages .

        Four watercolours of mountain scenery on album boards.

      Dated in pencil on 3 of the reverses : May 25th 1839, June 4th 1839, & November 13th 1849. Measuring: 25 x 36cm; 26 x 36.5 cm & 25.5 x 36cm; - Three images represent scenic views with mountains and lakes, white military tents can be seen neatly pitched on the borders of the lakes in different locations; another image shows the walls of a large ancient fortress with imposing ruins of an Indian palace above, goats and boulders on a plateau in the foreground. Two images lightly foxed; 3 corners of blank boards cut away. The water colours appear to have been executed by a participant in a military expedition, perhaps to the North-Western frontier at the time of the first Afghan War (1839-42) fought as part of the ‘Great Game’ competing for power and influence between Imperial Britain and Russia.

      19 pages of manuscript. Little is known about the Edgartown Mining Company, a group that set out from Martha's Vineyard aboard the ship "Walter Scott" for the gold fields of California in 1849. In fact, a great deal of what we know is contained in the Indenture and Constitution of this company, which I sold in Maritime List 196 (http://www.tenpound.com/196/51.html) and which is now owned by the Maritime Heritage Projects. Upon landing in San Francisco some of the company got into an argument with Henry Pease, the company's director and ship's Captain. At issue was the cost of proceeding to the gold fields. Then, as the company disintegrated, the dispute spread to payment received for shipping cargo from Callao to San Francisco, and to the settlement of shares for men who had worked their passage to California, as opposed to the stockholders who traveled as passengers. Some members of the company may have stayed in California, but many of them, including Captain Pease, were back in Edgartown by 1854, when this hearing took place. This document consists of the testimony and cross examination of eleven named members of the company. This testimony reveals details about the voyage, the company itself, and what happened after they landed in San Francisco. It is docketed "Pease vs. Luce. Edgartown, Jan 11, 1854." Ichabod Luce, a member of the company, worked as 1st mate on the voyage, and is the person who lodged the complaint against Pease. Clean and legible.

        THE ENGLISH STRUWWELPETER or Pretty Stories and Funny Pictures for Little Children. After the tenth edition of the celebrated German work.

      Leipsic. Friedrich Volckmar. London, at the Agency of the German Literary Society. 1849. 24 pages printed and hand-coloured on rectos only. Original printed paper-covered boards. Quarto. Second English edition. Lacking rear blank endpaper; original covers with loss of some of the printed paper surface and generally cracked and rubbed; spine repaired and some paper restoration to covers; juvenile scribble on page 20 ['O Dear.']; some spotting and soiling internally, but generally very good and, overall, an acceptable copy of a very early edition. Contained in a morocco-backed folding box. Originally published in Germany in 1845 as Lustige Geschichten und drollige Bilder, with only 15 pages, the book was expanded and renamed Struwwelpeter in 1847. Hoffmann instructed his publishers to issue the book in strong boards but with a frail paper spine, hoping that children would quickly read the book to pieces, and parents be forced to buy another copy; this accounts for the dearth of copies surviving in original boards. As with all genuine copies of early printings, the government's tax stamp appears on the upper board. The book was first published in English in 1848.

        Eigenh. Lebenslauf mit Namenszug in der Eingangszeile.

      O. O., [um bzw. nach 1849]. - 1 S. Gr.-4to. Für den Brockhaus Verlag bestimmtes Manuskript zu seinem Lebenslauf: "Braun, Aug. Emil, geb. zu Gotha 19 April 1809 erhielt seine Schulbildung auf dem dortigen Gymnasium, welches sich damals eines gewissen Rufes erfreute. Noch vor seinem Abgange auf die Universität wurde ein nach seinem Plane in Gemeinschaft mit einem Freunde ausgefertigtes Lexicon Horatiorum als Index zu Königs Horaz publicirt. In Göttingen begann er i. J. 1829 seine Studien, die vorzugsweise auf Poesie, Kunst und Philosophie gerichtet waren. Er hörte ein ganzes Jahr lang O. Müllers sogenannte realistische Collegia. Da er sich aber überzeugte, daß dieser eminente Gelehrte in der Archäologie der Anschauung und in der Mythologie der philosophischen Begründung entbehrte, so entschloß er sich nach München zu gehn, wo er 2½ J. lang verweilte und Schelling's ganzen Lehrcursus durchmachte. In dem Hauses dieses seines unbegränzt und mit voller Hingebung verehrten Lehrers machte er auch Gerhard's Bekanntschaft und zwar in dem Augenblick, wo er im Begriff war, dies zu verlassen. Dieses Zusammentreffen entschied über seinen ganzen nachmaligen Lebensgang [.]". - Bei dem erwähnten Gerhard handelt es sich um den Archäologen Eduard Gerhard, von dem Braun 1833 als Amanuensis ans Berliner Museum berufen wurde und dem er im Herbst desselben Jahres nach Rom folgte, wo er am Istituto di Correspondenza Archeologica als Unterarchivar und Bibliothekar seine erste Stelle antrat, später Prosekretär und Redakteur von dessen Bulletino wurde, dann redigierender Sekretär und schließlich von 1840 an das Institut im wesentlichen leitete.

        The Life, Trial, and Execution of MARIA MANNING and FREDERICK G. MANNING for the Barbarous Murder of PATRICK O'CONNOR; who was Executed on Tuesday, November 13th, 1849, at Horsemonger Lane Goal.

      T. Gill, Easingwold 1849 - 16mo. 48 pp. Very sympathetic recent drab wrappers, paper title label on front wrapper. First and last page soiled, some foxing or staining here and there. The case of the "Bermondsey Horror" involves one of the most infamous trials in 19th-century England; the execution of the guilty woman and her husband by hanging occasioned public outrage from Charles Dickens and many other "decent" citizens. THE CASE: Marie Manning was an alluring 28-year-old Swiss domestic servant who was hanged outside Horsemonger Lane Gaol, London, England, on 13 November 1849, after she and her husband were convicted of the murder of her lover, Patrick O'Connor, in the case that became known as the "Bermondsey Horror." It was the first time since 1700 that a husband and wife had been executed together in England. THE TRIAL: After the arrest, the accused were moved from Horsemonger Lane to Newgate prison for the trial which opened at the Old Bailey (next door to Newgate) on Thursday, the 25th of October before Chief Justice Cresswell and lasted two days. Both were represented by counsel and the respective lawyers tried to shift responsibility for the killing from their client to the other's client. It seemed that both Frederick and Maria each expected the other to shoulder responsibility but neither would. At the end of the trial, it took the jury 45 minutes to find them both guilty. Maria lost the composure she had shown during the trial and screamed at the jury "You have treated me like a wild beast of the forest." She continued to rave at the judge as he tried to pass sentence of death upon her. They were taken back to Newgate and then across London to Horsemonger Lane Gaol to await their executions. She apparently asked the warders escorting her how they had liked her performance in court. THE EXECUTION: the public hanging of the Mannings, which Charles Dickens had witnessed, occasioned his writing two letters to the Times protesting the "barbaric" practice, emphasizing his belief that such events "had only a hardening and debasing influence on their spectators, and that from the moment a murderer was convicted he should be kept from curious visitors and reporters serving up his sayings and doings in the Sunday papers, and executed privately within the prison walls."

An 1847 Merriam edition as reported first by Leavitt and subsequently by Burkett is by all accounts a ghost.

All written on bifolia; the first two letters bear seals with the autograph address on the reverse of the counter-leaf. Collection of four long, unpublished letters spanning more than a decade, all to the Berlin physicist and geologist Georg Adolf Erman (1806-77), who had just returned from a long voyage around the world and was in the process of publishing his findings ("Reise um die Welt durch Nordasien und die beiden Oceane", 5 vols. of history [1833-42] and 2 vols. of physics [1835-41, with atlas]). Gauss was able to draw on Erman's empirical observations about earth's magnetic field. All four letters begin with thanks for gifts sent by Erman, then develop into extensive scientific discussions which even touch upon Gauss's thermogalvanic experiments. Also, Gauss mentions his attempts to obtain books of Russian fiction. - In 1836 Gauss thanks Erman for presenting him with the 2nd part of his "Reise um die Erde" ("Ortsbestimmungen und Declinationsbeobachtungen auf dem festen Lande"): "This work contains a great wealth of facts. I am particularly interested in your magnetic observations and therefore am glad that you decided to include in this early volume your compass declinations with their results. These, in connection with other observations, will serve to supply the gap left by Barlow's map of declinations [.] But now I dearly look forward to the publication of the second part which is to contain the intensities and inclination readings. Hopefully we will then soon possess a general map for the horizontal intensity, which is devoutly to be wished. Indeed, as things stand now, the entire intensity in most cases is to be conceived merely as a unit of calculation at which one cannot directly arrive with any degree of precision, but which is a mere function of immediately observable elements, such as one rarely will find together in a single place, and even more rarely with the same degree of reliability; and, even more importantly, there are precious few occasions on which the entire intensity will be of any use at all; what is really needed are those very separate elements themselves. To arrange the three coordinates in such a fashion that one of them represents the whole intensity would seem to me, considering the present state of affairs, like wanting to draw up a star index in longitude and latitude only, omitting right ascension and declination. Indeed, at close examination even this comparison proves misleading, as an astronomer ultimately needs latitudes and longitudes for planets and comets so as to establish a general theory, whereas to establish a general theory of the geomagnetic field deserving of the name it is indispensable to disassemble the whole intensity back into its components. To be sure, this statement, which you must not take as an off-handed remark but rather as the result of long and thorough deliberation, cannot possibly be explained in a letter, but this much I can add: that I am fully satisfied as to the method by which the establishment of an exhausting General Theory is to be attacked [.] You may be interested to learn that our recent thermogalvanic experiments have already succeeded in so amplifying an electric current that it is capable of setting even the 25 pound rods in violent motion after passing through a wire of a mile's length [.]". - In 1839 Gauss thanks for a "postcard from Kamchatka" and for the "full communication of Erman's declination readings": "I will be most happy soon to receive also the corrected data of your intensities, although there is no hurry about that. I am merely making mention of a few of your observations in an article intended for the 3rd part of the Findings of the Magnetic Society, the first sheet of which is now in the press.
