        Die Cellularpathologie in ihrer Begründung auf physiologische und pathologische Gewebelehre. Zwanzig Vorlesungen gehalten während der Monate Februar, März, April 1858 imn pathologischen Institute zu Berlin.

      - Zweite, neu durchgesehene Aufllage. - Berlin, Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1859, 8°, XVIIII, (2), 444 pp., mit 144 Holzschnitten, feiner Halbledereinband der Zeit. Das Konzept der neuen wissenschaftlichen Medizin der "Cellular-Pathologie" war ursprünglich das Stenogramm einer Reihe von Vorlesungen, die Anfang 1858 vor einer Hörerschaft von Berliner praktischen Ärzten gehalten worden waren und die dazu bestimmt waren, sie mit den Grundansichten und den Entdeckungen des neuen Pathologie Professors bekanntzumachen." Ackerknecht - "Während der ersten Vorlesung entwickelte Virchow seine Zellenlehre und beschrieb die Morphologie der Tierzellen, wobei er darlegte, daß die Zelle die strukturelle Grundlage aller Lebenserscheinungen und den einzig möglichen Ausgangspunkt aller biologischer Lehren darstellte. Darüber hinaus hielt er es für notwendig, die Pathologie auf histologischen Untersuchungen aufzubauen; und setzte der Humoral- bzw. Solidarpathologie seiner Zeit die "Cellular-Pathologie" entgegen. Nach der Feststellung, daß "jedes Thier als eine Summe vitaler Einheiten erscheint, von denen jede den vollen Charakter des Lebens an sich trägt", wandte sich Virchow der Frage nach dem Charakter des Lebens zu. In einem später berühmt geworden Absatz erklärt er: - Der Charakter und die Einheit des Lebens kann nicht an einem bestimmten Punkte einer höheren Organisation gefunden werden, z.B. im Gehirn des Menschen, sondern nur in bestimmten, constant wiederkehrenden Einrichtung, welche jedes einzelne Element an sich trägt. Daraus geht hervor, dass die Zusammensetzung eines grösseren Körpers immer auf eine Art von gesellschaftlicher Einrichtung herauskommt, eine Einrichtung socialer Art, wo eine Masse von einzelnen Existenzen auf einander angewiesen ist, aber so, dass jedes Element für sich eine besondere Thätigkeit hat, dass jedes, wenn es auch die Anregung zu einer Thätigkeit von anderen Theilen empfängt, doch die eigentliche Leistung von sich ausgehen lässt"." Mazzolini - Als wichtigstes medizinisches Ergebnis seiner speziellen histologischen Forschungen betrachtete Virchow selbst den Schritt von einer vaskulären zu einer Zellulartheorie der Entzündung: - "Doch die Entzündung als solche braucht weder Nerven noch Gefäße, weder Schmerzen noch Exsudation. Sie kann als einfacher nutritiver und formativer Prozeß vorkommen, der sich von anderen ähnlichen Prozessen nur durch seine Heftigkeit und Gefahr unterscheidet". -cf.Ackerknecht - Die Zellular-Pathologie wurde, obgleich sie nicht leicht zu lesen ist, ein unerwarteter Publikumserfolg. Sie fand nach ihrem Autor "zahlreiche Freunde und lebhafte Feinde". Innerhalb eines Jahres wurde bereits dieses hier vorliegende Neuauflage erforderlich. Der Autor war nicht allein in seinem Verlangen nach einer Synthese gewesen, und es war ihm schließlich gelungen eine gedankliche Grundlage, auf der man sich einigen und wirken konnte, für die gesamte medizinischen Welt zu formulieren. -cf.Ackerknecht - - "Virchow was the greatest figure in the history of pathology. His best work 'Die Cellularpathologie' is one of the most important books in the history of medicine, and the foundation stone in cellular pathology." G/M - "He set in motion the now familiar idea that the body may be regarded 'as a state in which every cell is a citizen.' Disease is a civil war, a 'conflict of citizens brought about by the action of external forces'. Singer: History of Biology. - "Virchow's theory that the seat of disease as well as any developed tissue could be traced back to the cell prompted his dictum "Omnis celluls e cellula" ("Every cell from a cell") to be added to Harvey's "Omne vivum ex ovo" ("Every living thing from an egg") and Pasteur's "Omne vivum e vivo "("Every living thing from a living thing"). Although after later research the concept had to be somewhat modified, "cellular pathology" is a term which belongs to Virchow alone." - -cf.

      Arnstadt, 14. April 1859.. 3 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Mit eh. Adresse (Faltbrief).. An den Musikkritiker und Schriftsteller Ludwig Rellstab (1799-1860): &quote;Heut, lieber Vetter, trittst Du, wie ich seit 9 Monaten es vorgethan, in die ehrwürdigen Sechsziger [!] Jahre. Möchtest Du es leicht, oder vielmehr noch besser als ich es tragen, es nicht wie ein Thor [!] mit schweren Eisenriegeln ansehen, wo man nur durch die Gitter [...] alte wehmüthige Ausblicke zurück werfen darf. Mich hatte das [...] gar nicht besonders affici[e]rt, u. es ist seitdem auch nicht anders geworden. Bereit müssen wir beide sein, und sind es wohl, daß der Tod uns plötzlich überfällt [...] u. können Gott danken, wenn die Abreihung [jetzt] erst geschieht. Aber im Uebrigen sind wir geistig rüstig genug, daß wir eben nicht erst schon an die Krücken denken, wenn wir spazi[e]ren gehen oder gar fliegen wollen [...]&quote;. - Ludwig Rellstab hatte auf ausgedehnten Studienreisen Goethe, Jean Paul, August Wilhelm Schlegel, E. M. Arndt, J. P. Hebel und Beethoven aufgesucht, war 1825 nach Berlin zurückgekehrt und betätigte sich als Schriftsteller, Librettist (u. a. &quote;Dido&quote;, Musik von Bernhard Klein, Uraufführung 1823), Übersetzer und Kritiker und zählte als erster ständiger Musik- und Opernreferent der &quote;Vossischen Zeitung&quote; von 1826 bis 48 zu den einflußreichsten Kritikern Berlins. Auf ihn zurück geht die Namensgebung &quote;Mondscheinsonate&quote; für Beethovens Klaviersonate op. 27; einige seiner Gedichte wurden von Franz Schubert vertont (darunter etwa &quote;Leise flehen meine Lieder&quote;). - Mit alten, unbed. Montagespuren.

Prima traduzione francese, autorizzata dall'autore stesso e dovuta a madame Loreau, di "Missionary Travels and Researches in South Africa", uno dei libri più celebri di Livingstone, edito a Londra nel 1857. L'opera, cui sono premesse delle rievocazioni autobiografiche, fa il punto sugli straordinari viaggi di Livingstone attraverso il Continente Nero, di cui fu forse il massimo esploratore, con una pletora di notizie geografiche, geologiche ed etnografiche, e narra i suoi sedici anni di permanenza in Africa Australe, con la scoperta, discendendo il corso dello Zambesi, delle cascate che, chiamate dagli indigeni "Moasi a Tunia", egli ribattezzò Vittoria in onore della Regina d'Inghilterra. 'Livingstone's (1813-1873) services to African geography during thirty years are almost unequalled; he covered about a third of the continent from the Cape to the Equator and from the Atlantic to the Indian Ocean.

First edition. - The French traveller L. du Couret (1812-67) is said to have made his first journey to the East in 1836, joining the Egyptian army in Syria and visiting Nubia, Senner, Kordofan, and Darfur. He states that he embraced Islam and made the pilgrimage to Mecca. He remains a dubious character, and some critics have even doubted his existence, attributing his works to the imagination of Alexandre Dumas père, author of the "Three Musketeers", who at least contributed a preface to du Couret's 1854 "Voyage au Pays des Niam-Niams".

        Die Cellularpathologie in ihrer Begründung auf physiologische und pathologische Gewebelehre. Zwanzig Vorlesungen gehalten während der Monate Februar, März, April 1858 imn pathologischen Institute zu Berlin.

      . Zweite, neu durchgesehene Aufllage. - Berlin, Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1859, 8°, XVIIII, (2), 444 pp., mit 144 Holzschnitten, feiner Halbledereinband der Zeit.. Das Konzept der neuen wissenschaftlichen Medizin der "Cellular-Pathologie" war ursprünglich das Stenogramm einer Reihe von Vorlesungen, die Anfang 1858 vor einer Hörerschaft von Berliner praktischen Ärzten gehalten worden waren und die dazu bestimmt waren, sie mit den Grundansichten und den Entdeckungen des neuen Pathologie Professors bekanntzumachen." Ackerknecht - "Während der ersten Vorlesung entwickelte Virchow seine Zellenlehre und beschrieb die Morphologie der Tierzellen, wobei er darlegte, daß die Zelle die strukturelle Grundlage aller Lebenserscheinungen und den einzig möglichen Ausgangspunkt aller biologischer Lehren darstellte. Darüber hinaus hielt er es für notwendig, die Pathologie auf histologischen Untersuchungen aufzubauen; und setzte der Humoral- bzw. Solidarpathologie seiner Zeit die "Cellular-Pathologie" entgegen. Nach der Feststellung, daß "jedes Thier als eine Summe vitaler Einheiten erscheint, von denen jede den vollen Charakter des Lebens an sich trägt", wandte sich Virchow der Frage nach dem Charakter des Lebens zu. In einem später berühmt geworden Absatz erklärt er: - Der Charakter und die Einheit des Lebens kann nicht an einem bestimmten Punkte einer höheren Organisation gefunden werden, z.B. im Gehirn des Menschen, sondern nur in bestimmten, constant wiederkehrenden Einrichtung, welche jedes einzelne Element an sich trägt. Daraus geht hervor, dass die Zusammensetzung eines grösseren Körpers immer auf eine Art von gesellschaftlicher Einrichtung herauskommt, eine Einrichtung socialer Art, wo eine Masse von einzelnen Existenzen auf einander angewiesen ist, aber so, dass jedes Element für sich eine besondere Thätigkeit hat, dass jedes, wenn es auch die Anregung zu einer Thätigkeit von anderen Theilen empfängt, doch die eigentliche Leistung von sich ausgehen lässt"." Mazzolini - Als wichtigstes medizinisches Ergebnis seiner speziellen histologischen Forschungen betrachtete Virchow selbst den Schritt von einer vaskulären zu einer Zellulartheorie der Entzündung: - "Doch die Entzündung als solche braucht weder Nerven noch Gefäße, weder Schmerzen noch Exsudation. Sie kann als einfacher nutritiver und formativer Prozeß vorkommen, der sich von anderen ähnlichen Prozessen nur durch seine Heftigkeit und Gefahr unterscheidet". -cf.Ackerknecht - Die Zellular-Pathologie wurde, obgleich sie nicht leicht zu lesen ist, ein unerwarteter Publikumserfolg. Sie fand nach ihrem Autor "zahlreiche Freunde und lebhafte Feinde". Innerhalb eines Jahres wurde bereits dieses hier vorliegende Neuauflage erforderlich. Der Autor war nicht allein in seinem Verlangen nach einer Synthese gewesen, und es war ihm schließlich gelungen eine gedankliche Grundlage, auf der man sich einigen und wirken konnte, für die gesamte medizinischen Welt zu formulieren. -cf.Ackerknecht - - "Virchow was the greatest figure in the history of pathology. His best work 'Die Cellularpathologie' is one of the most important books in the history of medicine, and the foundation stone in cellular pathology." G/M - "He set in motion the now familiar idea that the body may be regarded 'as a state in which every cell is a citizen.' Disease is a civil war, a 'conflict of citizens brought about by the action of external forces'. Singer: History of Biology. - "Virchow's theory that the seat of disease as well as any developed tissue could be traced back to the cell prompted his dictum "Omnis celluls e cellula" ("Every cell from a cell") to be added to Harvey's "Omne vivum ex ovo" ("Every living thing from an egg") and Pasteur's "Omne vivum e vivo "("Every living thing from a living thing"). Although after later research the concept had to be somewhat modified, "cellular pathology" is a term which belongs to Virchow alone." - -cf. Heirs of Hippocrates No. 1013; Garrison & Morton No. 2299

It comprises a large leaf of paper folded into a four-page document (last page blank), with 47 lines of text, date, and signature. ?I request Your Excellency to be willing to accept this copy of the Military annals of the Dutch East-Indies,? Gerlach opens his letter, written in French. Expressing his appreciation to Randon's military achievements, he begs that the book will be presented to His Majesty the Emperor of the French, continuing, ?Voilà monsieur le Maréchal ce qui me porte à vous offrir ce travail et à vous prier d'être mon interprète auprès de l'Auguste chef du peuple français pour que Sa Majesté daigne accepter un exemplaire de mon livre.? The letter, in exceptionally fine condition though a bit foxed, is preserved in pH-balanced, acid-free archival paper. Jacques Louis César Alexandre, Maréchal Comte Randon, born 25 March, 1795 in Grenoble, died 16 January, 1871 in Geneva. A French general and statesman, Marshal of France during the Second Empire. Began his military career at an early age. In 1838 he was appointed Commander of the African Jagers, and fought for ten years against the Arabs, becoming in 1847 a Lieutenant General. In 1851 he became Governor-General of Algeria, a position he held until 1858. On 18 March, 1856 he became Marshal of France. From 1859 to 1867 he served as Minister of War. Retired from public life in 1870, and died a year later. The author, Abraham Jean Arnaud Gerlach, was born in 1871 in Groningen. He received his education at the Koninklijke Militaire Academie, graduating as Lieutenant of the Artillery. As Colonel he later had a long teaching career at the same academy, and contributed regularly to military studies and publications. He translated his ?Fastes militaires des Indes...? into Dutch, and published it in Zalt-Bommel and Paris in 1874-75 as the three-volume set ?Neerlands heldenfeiten in Oost-Indië?. He died in 1906. The importance of this work is remarkable: OCLC lists no less than 20 major North American libraries who keep a copy, including Johns Hopkins, Harvard, Washington, Princeton, and Columbia university libraries, as well as NYPL. A rare copy with fine provenance.

Montanaro, p. 69.The dating of this item is problematic, but likely about 1859. Montanaro suggests a date of 1860, but the Cotsen copy in the Diana Rexford Tillson collection has an inscription dated March, 1859. It is probably safe to ascribe a date of 1858 or early 1859, then. Dean and Son was the first publisher to produce movable books on a large scale. In the late 1850's, the firm can be credited with inventing another first: the use of a mechanism that moved or was animated by pulling a tab. Housed in a custom made protective portfolio.
