        Beweise der Unschädlichkeit des Schwefel-Aethers und der Nachtheile des Chloroform's nebst Anleitung, die Narkose auf eine leichte und angenehme Art zu Bewerkstelligen

      und Anhang über kupferfreie Platinalegierung in der Zahntechnik. - Wien, Carl Gerold & Sohn, 1850, Kl.8, (4)+136 pp., OBrosch. Unaufgeschnittenes, sehr gut erhaltenes Exemplar. ERSTE AUSGABE - einer der ersten Erfahrungsberichte über die Äthernarkose. "Die erste Äthernarkose wurde in Wien 1847 unter Schuh durchgeführt. 2 Tage später wurde auch von Wattmann Äther zur Narkose verabreicht. Etwa gleichzeitig begann der heute fast unbekannte Wiener Zahnarzt Joseph Weiger mit Narkosen für zahnärztliche Eingriffe . Über seine Erfahrungen berichtete er 1850 anhand von 21.000 Operationen." Panning "Er bezog seine Kenntnisse und Informationen über Äthernarkosen direkt von Boston und widmete sein Büchlein Dr. Jackson und Dr. Morton. Weiger bezeichnete damals die Einführung des Äthers für Narkosen als die größte Erfindung des Jahrhunderts und begründete seine Meinung wie folgt: Ich sage, die größte Erfindung, weil man ohne Dampfkraft, ohne Telegraphen bloß langsamer seine Wünsche realisiren konnte aber was für die leidende Menschheit durch die Entdeckung der schmerzlosen Operationen gewonnen wurde, wird nur derjenige begreifen und würdigen, der in die traurige Lage gesetzt wurde, einer großen Operation sich zu unterziehen abgesehen davon, daß Viele eher zum Sterben bereit waren als sich schmerzhaften Operationen zu unterwerfen, während jetzt, wo diese schmerzlos vorgenommen werden können, Viele, die es früher aus Angst unter keinen Verhältnissen gewagt hätten, sich einer Operation zu unterziehen, jetzt, wenn es noth thut, bereitwillig einer solchen sich unterwerfen." R.Dudziak, Lhb. Anästhesiologie, S.206 "Allein das Studium dieses Werkchens, wie es der Autor auf Seite 29 bescheiden selbst bezeichnet, macht deutlich, daß dieser sich als kaiserlich, königlicher erster Armen-Zahnarzt, emeritierter Gerichts- und Gefangenenhaus-Wundarzt ausweisende Mann einer der erfahrensten Anästhesisten seiner Zeit gewesen sein mußte. Schon die Zahlen bei Hammerschmidt (Oesterr. Med Wschr 1847 III:1175 - 1182) deuten in dieser Richtung. Noch erstaunlicher sind die 3 Jahre später nun von Weiger selbst stammenden Angaben. Inzwischen habe er weit über 21.000 Operationen auf schmerzlose Weise durch Narkose vollzogen. Dabei muß allerdings bedacht werden, daß die Mehrzahl der Operationen Zahnextraktionen waren und daß man die Entfernung eines jeden Zahnes als eine Operation wertete. Aber Weiger leitete auch die Narkose bei großen Operationen. Seine Hilfe wurde von Wiener Chirurgen zur Exstirpation von monströsen Aftergewächsen, wo die Narkose oft über eine Stunde ausgedehnt wurde, in Anspruch genommen. Es werden in diesem Zusammenhang Namen wie von Ivanchich, Edler von Fest, Sigmund, die Regimentsärzte Hoch, Haller und andere genannt. In der Aufzählung der Operationen findet man neben den analchirurgischen Eingriffen Steinzertrümmerungen, Amputationen, Augenoperationen und geburtshilfliche Eingriffe. Dies schildert Weiger im allgemeinen Teil seines Buches. An dieser Stelle findet sich auch eine Warnung vor dem Chloroform, ...". "Weiter enthält die Publikation Zusammenfassungen über die Artikel aus der Tagespresse. Dann folgt ein wörtlicher Abdruck des oben zitierten Aufsatzes von Hammerschmidt. Danach findet man einige Briefe, und dann werden Auszüge von mehr als 100 Dankschreiben von Patienten präsentiert, deren Studium dem Leser die Wohltat der Narkose drastisch deutlich macht." -Panning. B.Panning, Joseph Weiger und die Einführung der Anästhesie in Wien, WMW 141/13, 1991, S.291 - 293 Crowley 530 Engelmann Suppl.272 Walser, Einführung der Äthernarkose im dt.Sprachgebiet.

        The Personal History of David Copperfield

      Bradbury & Evans, Bouverie Street, London 1850 - First bound, book form edition. An early copy of the first edition, by all accounts, as evidenced by the presence of "stab holes" close to the inner hinge of the binding. Apparently these were from the where stitching has been taken out of the original part works, the spares of these being used for the earliest bound copies. (So it is said at least.) Some foxing throughout the book although this is quite heavy to the prelims and plate backs. The original green cloth boards are bolstered by a recently rebacked/new spine cloth. End papers were replaced most probably at the same time as this restoration work. In all a very decent, collectable condition clean copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        [Macbeth]. [Era Novella del Bazar musicale settimanale, ovvero, raccolta de' più accreditati spartiti per canto e pianoforte composti dagli illustri maestri italiani, anno primo, secondo spartito completo]. [Piano-vocal score]

      [Napoli]: [Del Monaco] [without PN], 1850. An early complete Neapolitan edition of the first version of the opera. Scarce. Hopkinson 46A(o) (1 copy only, at the Istituto di Studi Verdiani in Parma). OCLC nos. 16841906, 81844208 (2 copies, at Wellesley and Stanford). Macbeth, to a libretto by Francesco Maria Piave (with additional material by Andrea Maffei) after William Shakespeare's play, was first performed in Florence at the Teatro della Pergola on March 14, 1847. "There is no doubt that Verdi's frequently voiced perception of the 1847 Macbeth as an especially important work, ennobled by its Shakespearean theme, was one that he successfully converted into dramatic substance. Much of the opera shows an attention to detail and sureness of effect unprecedented in earlier works. This holds true as much for the 'conventional' numbers, such as Lady Macbeth's opening aria or the subsequent duet with Macbeth, as for formal experiments like the Macbeth-Banquo duettino in Act 1. What is more, the new standard set by Macbeth was one that Verdi rarely retreated from in subsequent works." Roger Parker in Grove Music Online.. Oblong folio. Dark brown cloth-backed marbled boards, spine in compartments gilt, titling gilt. 1f. (blank), [1] (blank), 2-176 pp. Each number with its own imprint, price, and secondary pagination. Engraved. With an illustrated title of a scene from the opera by Focosi from the first complete edition published in Milan by Giovanni Ricordi ca. 1847 tipped-in to front free endpaper. Hopkinson 46A(a). Binding worn, rubbed, and bumped. Minor foxing, heavier to several leaves; margins slightly soiled, with occasional small stains; pp. 69-72 detached; title and pp. 35-38 lacking; "72" to spine and illustrated title.

        Philosophy of Railroads, Published at the Request of the Directors of the Montreal and Lachine Railroads

      Toronto: W.H. Armour, 1850. 40 pp. Original printed wraps. The author, one of Canada's greatest civil engineers, opposes a plan to extend the 8 mile portage Montreal-Lachine Railroad to Kingston, opting instead for a major line from Montreal to Toronto that would connect western commercial interests with the St. Lawrence. Thomas Coltrin Keefer (1821-1915), "one of the great hydraulic engineers of his time," was fully aware of the superior importance of railways to national economic development. In this tract he offers an exhaustive analysis of tremendous stimulating effect such a road would have on the Canadian economy, utilizing comparisons with railways and commercial activity in the United States. This, a resetting of the first edition of the same year (39 pp.), was followed by several later editions, all scarce. TPL 3089. Dictionary of Canadian Biography.

        The Crow Quadrilles (Zip Coon, Jim Brown, Sittin on a Rail, Jim Crow, Clare de Kitchen, and Sich a Getin Up Stairs [Sheet Music]

      Baltimore: G. Willig, Jun'r, 1850. Wraps. Very good. Sheet music with 8-pages including the cover. Complete. Six songs: Zip Coon (Turkey in the Straw0, Jim Brown, Sittin on a Rail, Jim Crow, Clare de Kitchen, and Sich a Getting Up Stairs). The front cover features a series of blackface character illustrations. The music is in very nice shape; light toning. Once bound so a little rough along the left edge. Thomas "Daddy" Rice, the "father of American minstrelsy," was a white performer who firs donned his black-faced, Jim Crow persona in 1828 during a New York song-and-dance routine. Rice claimed his routine was inspired by a stable hand named Jim Crow whom he saw performing a song and jig, after which he purchased the man's ragged clothing and adapted his dance routine for the stage. Rice's performance took first New York and then the entire country by storm. Others imitated Rice's act in increasingly elaborate shows, and minstrels became the most important and popular form of American entertainment during the 19th century. Several versions of "The Crow Quadrilles" were published between 1834 and 1850, and their precedence is untetermined. This example is one of two that included six Rice songs. Its front cover shows Rice performing as Jim Crow in the center, a blackface marching band, and several other characters including Zip Coon and Long Tail Blue. A black crow with a human face (possibly a portrait of Rice without burnt cork) surmounts the other illustrations. While all versions of "The Crow Quadrilles" are scarce, this edition is mus less common than the others. As of 2017, none are for sale in the trade, OCLC shows only one institutional holding, and one was sold at a recent Swan auction.

        Complete deck of Lenomand-Piquet fortune-telling cards

      Bruges: : Édouard Alexis Daveluy, 1850. Unbound. Very good. Complete with all 36 cards (sixes through aces) measuring approximately 2.25" x 3.5". Lithographed with stencil coloring. The cards feature a Lenomand image with its basic meaning (in French) and have illustration of traditional playing cards in the upper left corners. The cards are in nice shape with light wear; at one time the ace of spades (the Dame) stuck to the reverse of the ace of diamonds (the Sun) resulting in matching ¼" x 1" scuffs on each. Tiny scuffs to the reverse of two other cards .Provenance: Harrie A. Kenter, Amsperdan. Marie Anne Adelaide Lenormand, became the most famous cartomancer in Europe during the late 1700s and early 1800s. She arrived in Paris as a destitute teenager in 1780s, perhaps with a deck or three of fortune-telling cards that had belonged to her mother. Soon, she became quite popular and is said to have been consulted by Napoleon, Robespierre Jospehine, Marat, Czar Alexander, and other. Two years after her death in 1843, a 54-card deck, "Grand jeu de Mlle Lenormand," was published anonymously in Paris along with "her" instructions for reading cards. Around 1850, playing card makers in Belgium, Germany, Austria, and Switzerland began producing "Petit Lenormand" cards based on a 36-card piquet deck with symbols from a fortune-telling pack first published around 1800; Édouard Develuy was among-if not the-first to do so. (See Chatto (1848) p 324, Van Resseler (1912) pp 367-374, and Caitlín Matthews's Soundings, 28 April 2012) Quite scarce, although modern reprints are available. As of 2017, no others are for sale in the trade, and there are no auction listings at ABPC, Rare Book Hub, or Worthpoint. OCLC shows two (by different publishers) held by institutions.

        Important collection of 7 extremely rare nineteenth-century Colombian Almanacs and Calendars. 1850-1866.

      1850-1866, Bogota 1850 - "Early Colombian Calendars & Almanacs". Small 8vo. Cloth case. The Biblioteca Nacional de Colombia Catalogue Catálogo Colectivo del patrimonio bibliográfico colombiano (CCPBC) records no original copy of any of the Almanacs in any library and only numbers 4 and 5 are available in the Biblioteca Nacional de Colombia as microform or in electronic form. We have not traced any library copies elsewhere. The ephemeral nature of these publications aimed at broad public no doubt accounts for their scarcity. They were much used, their small format permitting them to be carried in the pocket for ease of consultation. They were almost certainly the only easily accessible printed matter and for that reason they are an important source for the history of the period. They were intended as a practical guide to the temporal ordering of religious and civil life. Apart from astronomical information, religious festivals and observances and civil events, they often contained a potpourri of elements designed for the amusement and instruction of their readers: poems, games, aphorisms, tables of weights and measures, cookery and general domestic recommendations and advice on appropriate social and moral conduct etc. They thus offer an illuminating insight into daily life of the period. 1) Calendario ó Almanaque Legitimo para la Nueva Granada, calculado para el año 1850. contiene un curioso Oráculo.

        Autograph letter signed.

      Down Farnborough Kent, 8. [VIII. 1850]. - 8vo. 4 pp. on bifolium. An important letter which underscores Darwin's belief in the scientific significance of the study of Cirripedia (barnacles). To Nathaniel Thomas Wetherell: "I fear that you will think me a sad trespasser on your kindness & forbearance, when I tell you that I have not actually completed my description of Loricula; but I shall do it directly & write now to obtain your permission to take (myself) your specimen to Mr. James De C. Sowerby to [be] drawn for publication by the Palæontographical Society.- I have received Mr [John Wickham] Flower's specimens, & some from Denmark but none are related to the Loricula, which is as perplexing as ever to me.- Immediately that Mr Sowerby has with your permission figured the Loricula (& I shall take it up in a fortnight) it shall be returned to you. - Is there any safe place where I could leave it in London for you, or shall I return it by a messenger? - I believe I did once before ask you, whether you have any other fossil Cirripedia. - To save you the trouble of answering, I will assume, without I hear to the contrary that Mr Sowerby may figure it. - With my best thanks | I remain dear Sir | Yours faithfully | C. Darwin | I assure you that it has not been idleness which has delayed me, but numbers of specimens of other fossil Cirri[pe]des". - We are able to date this letter precisely because August 1850 was the only month with a 'Thursday 8th' in the period between the Palaeontographical Society's decision to publish Fossil Cirripedia and the publication of the first volume of this work in 1851, in which Loricula pulchella is described (Fossil Cirripedia (1851): 81-6). - James de Carle Sowerby drew all the figures of the specimens in the first volume of Fossil Cirripedia. At the time of writing, Darwin does not seem to have known that George Brettingham Sowerby Jr had described and figured this particular specimen in 1843. However, since that time Wetherell had cleared away more material from the specimen, revealing features not seen by G.B. Sowerby Jr, and a new drawing was made for Darwin's description (Fossil Cirripedia (1851): 81). (Darwin Correspondence Project). - Published by the Darwin Correspondence Project, University of Cambridge, as Letter no. DCP-LETT-1267. - Slight damage to paper (no loss to text) and in some parts professionally restored.

        ALBUM PINTORESCO, DE LA REPUBLICA MEXICANA.

      Mexico: Julio Michaud y Thomas, [ca. 1850]. - Lithograph title-leaf and forty-five lithographic plates, twelve in full color and thirty-three on tinted grounds. Oblong folio. Later green cloth spine and corners over original printed green boards. Some wear and soiling. Quite clean internally. Images bright and fresh. Very good. The first great Mexican lithographic and color plate book, and a very difficult book to obtain in nice condition. Though the album is undated, it contains battle scenes of the Mexican-American War (1846-47) and depicts the equestrian statue of Carlos IV in the courtyard of the University, from which it was removed in 1852, suggesting a date of circa 1850. The colored plates depict various inhabitants in their local costumes standing amid sweeping terrain and graceful plazas. These include rancheros, tortilleras, and local Indians, among others. The tinted views show Vera Cruz, Mexico City, Independence Fountain, National Theatre, Chihuahua, Bay of Acapulco, and numerous other locales. The final six plates show scenes from the Mexican-American War, depicting the "heroica defensa" put up by the Mexican Army. The number of plates varies from thirty-nine to forty- nine, and the work seems to have been issued on an on- demand basis. The Mellon copy at Yale has thirty-nine plates, and in their cataloguing Yale refers to the book as the "first major color plate book produced in Mexico." The Bancroft Library holds a copy with forty- nine plates. The copies at the University of Texas and the University of Missouri have forty-five plates, as in the present copy. The only other copy we locate on OCLC is one at the National Library of Art in Britain. The DeGolyer copy at Southern Methodist University is not present in OCLC, but their copy also has forty-five plates, as do two copies we know of in private collections. The six Mexican-American War views are at the end of the book, suggesting they were added to the original assemblage of thirty- nine plates. The best study of this work is the Condumex reprint edited by W. Michael Mathes in 2000. The publisher, Julio Michaud, was a native of France who moved to Mexico and worked there as a publisher and bookseller from the 1830s to the 1860s. His partner was also a transplanted Frenchman, Jean Baptiste Thomas. Michaud later dealt in photographic material and was himself a photographer. A rare and beautiful work.
