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

      Zweite, neu durchgesehene Auflage. - 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

        JUDAICA, VAN PRAAG, DERCKSEN, ALBERDINGK THIJM, LEIDEN “Dichterlijk Album van M[aria] L[eonide] van Praag”. Album met verzen in handschrift en tekeningen, ca. 100 pagina's, 1859-1907.

      "Marie van Praag, in 1859 getrouwd met Jacobus Marinus Everhardus Dercksen te Leiden gebruikte het album a voor het inschrijven van door haar gekopieerde verzen van bewonderde dichters en b als poeziealbum waarin (dichtende) vrienden en familieleden hun bijdrage schreven. Van beide categorieën voegde zij ingeplakte - door haar zelf gemaakte - portrettekeningen toe. Zo is er een portret van haar man, J.M.E. Dercksen (geb. Leiden 1825), die letterkundige faam genoot. Hij redigeerde van 1857-1862 het tijdschrift De Rederijker en schreef toneelstukken. In dit album is hij vertegenwoordigd met drie verzen “aan Marie” (een ervan bij een fotografisch portret van hemzelf), een vers op Schiller, een vers “Vrienden die naar de Oost gaan” (eerder verschenen in het Jaarboekje Holland 1855) en een vers dat hij in februari 1859 schreef voor Maries zuster Francisca Leonide van Praag, onder de indruk van haar moeders dood op 31 januari 1859. Eigenhandige bijdragen van anderen zijn: een sonnet door J.A. Alberdingk Thijm d.d. 8-6-1879; een inschrijving van haar oom H.J. Berlin; een vers uit 1901 van A.J. Servaas van Rooyen uit Den Haag; en een tekst uit 1907 van J. Waterman Jr. bij een portrettekening door Marie van zijn vader J. Waterman, lector oosterse talen bij het gymnasium te Arnhem.De portretten, meest naar prenten en foto's, zijn van J. van Lennep, H.W. Longfellow, Goethe, Voltaire, I. da Costa, J.M.E. Dercksen, Victor Hugo, Schiller, Racine, J. Waterman, Hofdijk, J.A. Alberdingk Thijm, Vondel, Servaes van Rooyen, A. de Lamartine, H. Conscience en Johanna van Woude.Het album komt uit het bezit van de judaica-verzamelaar Dr. Arthur Polak, die het antiquarisch had gekocht. In 1948 publiceerde Anton van Duinkerken over het album: “Bij een sonnet van Thijm”, 5 p. (overdruk bijgevoegd). Hij deelt daarin o.a. mee dat Dercksen in 1860 werd beëdigd als notaris. Voorts dat de Van Praags van joodse afkomst waren maar dat vader Leonides Salomon van Praag, med.dr. en zijn vrouw Rachel Itzig Berlin in 1847 overgingen tot de N.H. kerk. Ze woonden toen Hooigracht 35 te Leiden. Na haar huwelijk woonde Marie op de Apothekersdijk. Het gedicht van Thijm is niet opgenomen in diens Verspreide Gedichten (1894).".M5215

        Reisen und Entdeckungen in Nord- und Central-Afrika in den Jahren 1849 bis 1855. Im Auszuge bearbeitet. Erster [-zweister] Band.

      Gotha: Justus Perthes, 1859 Gotha: Justus Perthes, 1859. . Original boards. VG+. "12 deliveries supplied in 9 fascicles to be bounded in 2 volumes (222x14mm.).- Vol. 1: 4, 508 p.; engraved portrait and 2 coloured chromolithographies; 51 figures, planes and views interspersed in text.- Vol. 2: 4, 456 p.; 1 folding plane, 1 folding map and 2 coloured chromolithographies; 41 figures, planes and views interspersed in text.- // The nine original fascicles with their original covers, as issued to be supplied to suscriptors, with full margins, uncutted. Two of them have the preprint publisher invoice for the recipient unwritten. Bottom corner of the front cover of the first fascicle, stained and crashed. Some foxing in all fascicles. No smudges, annotations, nor underlines. Anthropologist (although he did not know it) and polyglot linguist, Heinrich Barth, who had been a pupil of Humboldt and Schiller, was first and foremost an unrepentant and interested explorer, beginning with this activity just after presenting his doctoral thesis. After a voyage through the Mediterranean coastal countries that gave rise to his first geographical and anthropological publication, 'Wanderungen durch die Küstenländer des Mittelmeeres', of which only one volume was published in 1849, he joined a British expedition for the exploration of Africa. He spent the following six years to cover practically the whole African territory between the Atlantic Ocean to the Red Sea, and between the Mediterranean to the Congo River -no less than half Africa-, and writting down all that he saw and was told about, even stories of oral tradition (while learning several of the languages with which he was found), becoming responsible for the expedition when his two directors died. When he returned to Europe he was publishing in German, over two years, in 5 volumes, 'Reisen und Entdeckungen in Nord- und Central-Afrika in den Jahren 1849 bis 1855'. As the volumes appeared, they were also published in English, with the same chromolithographs. In view of the applause with which the work was received, its German publisher, Justus Perthes, of Gotha, decided to publish a two-volume abridged edition (with fewer chromolithographs) that could reach a wider audience just a year after he finish printing the original edition. For the new version launched a subscription that would have twelve deliveries, but, for various delays, ended up concentrating them in only 9, facilitating deliveries 5 and 6, 7 and 8, and 10 and 11, in double fascicles, as could be seen in the specimen we offer."

        11 eigenh. Briefe m. Unterschrift.

      Prag u.a., 1854-1859. - „[.] Erst durch ihre zweite Stiefmutter und durch ihre deutsche Gouvernante, Marie Kittel, wurde sie [Marie von Ebner-Eschenbach] in deutsche Sprache und Literatur eingeführt. Diese deutsche Gouvernante und Maries Vetter Moritz waren es, welche die Begabung Maries erkannten [.]" (Naxos). - Marie Kittl hat später als Erzieherin der Tochter König Leopolds, der Prinzessin Charlotte, ein ansehnliches Jahresgehalt erhalten und hatte dadurch die Möglichkeit „von Zeit zu Zeit einen neuen, hübsch ausgestatteten Band in kleiner Auflage erscheinen zu lassen und einige Exemplare an Freunde zu verschenken" (Ebner-Eschenbach, Meine Kinderjahre). - Der Empfänger der auf Französisch abgefassten Briefe ist Jacques (Jacob) Mislin (1807-1878). Der aus ärmlichen Verhältnissen stammende Mislin konnte dank seines Onkels an der berühmten Lehranstalt von Porrentruy im Schweizer Kanton Bern studieren, wo er nicht viel später auch selbst unterrichten sollte. Der 1830 zum Priester geweihte kath. Theologe wurde 1836 auf Vermittlung des Grafen von Bombelle an den Wiener Hof berufen, wo er einer der Lehrer der Söhne von Erzherzog Franz Karl und Erzherzogin Sophie wurde und damit sowohl den zukünftigen Kaiser Franz Joseph wie auch Erzherzog Ferdinand Maximilian (später Kaiser Max von Mexiko) unterrichtete (u.a. auch in Erdkunde). Vor der Revolution von 1848 unternahm Mislin eine Pilgerreise von Wien über Budapest und Konstantinopel nach Jersusalem. Der danach erschienene Reisebericht wurde in mehrere Sprachen übersetzt und mehrfach nachgedruckt. In den folgenden Jahren leitete er die Bibliothek am Hof der Herzogin von Parma, Erzherzogin Marie Louise, wurde zum Abt von St. Maria von Deg (Ungarn), geheimer Kämmerer u.

      Wien u. Leipzig, 1858-1859 bzw. o. J. - [An den österr. Chemiker u. Mineralogen Anton Schrötter von Kristelli (1802-1875)]. - Nach Professuren in Zürich und Wien ging er 1865 an die Universität Leipzig und baute dort die heute nach ihm benannte „Physiologische Anstalt" (Carl-Ludwig-Institut für Physiologie der Universität Leipzig) auf, wo er zu Themen wie Blutdruck, Harnabsonderung und Narkose forschte. Einige seiner Schüler waren Otto Frank und Wilhelm Ellenberger. Neben seinen Aktivitäten in der Physiologie betätigte er sich auch in der Physikalischen Chemie. --- Der in Olmütz geborene Anton Schrötter, Sohn eines Apothekers, studierte ab 1822 zunächst auf Wunsch seines Vaters in Wien Medizin, wechselte dann aber unter dem Einfluss von Friedrich Mohs zu den naturwissenschaftlichen Fächern, speziell der Mineralogie. 1827 erhielt er eine Assistentenstelle für Physik und Mathematik an der Universität Wien. 1830 wurde er Professor für Physik und Chemie am Technischen Institut Joanneum in Graz. Während eines halbjährigen Urlaubs im Jahre 1838 besuchte er chemische Institute in Göttingen, Heidelberg, Frankfurt und Paris. In Gießen machte er sich bei Justus von Liebig mit der organischen Elementaranalyse vertraut. Ab 1843 arbeitete er als Professor für technische Chemie am Polytechnischen Institut der Universität Wien und übernahm dort 1845 die Professur für allgemeine Chemie. Schrötter war neben Baumgartner, Ettingshausen und Haidinger einer der Begründer der Kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien und wurde 1850 ihr Generalsekretär. Die Deutsche Akademie der Naturforscher Leopoldina wählte Schrötter 1856 zu ihrem Mitglied. Ab 1868 leitete er das österreichische Hauptmünzamt und wurde gleichzeitig zum Ministerialrat ernannt. Er wurde 1874 in den Ruhestand versetzt und eröffnete in seiner Wohnung ein Privatlaboratorium, in dem er Studien über Edelmetalle betrieb. 1875 starb er in Wien. Schrötter hat in seinem Leben ca. 60 wissenschaftliche Publikationen verfasst. Ab 1845 beschäftigte Schrötter sich intensiv mit Phosphor. 1848 gelang ihm der Nachweis der schon von Berzelius geäußerten Vermutung, dass roter Phosphor eine allotrope Modifikation des weißen Phosphors, nicht aber eine Phosphorverbindung ist. Schrötter wandelte weißen Phosphor durch Erhitzen in roten um, den man zeitweise Schrötterschen Phosphor nannte. Sein Verfahren zur Darstellung desselben revolutionierte die Streichholzindustrie, wo roter Phosphor schon bald als Bestandteil der Reibflächen genutzt wurde. Er war ein Organisator in Industrie und Wissenschaft sowie Berater bei den Vorbereitungen zur Novara-Expedition und zur Österreich-Ungarischen Nordpolexpedition. - ge Gewicht in Gramm: 500 [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        Blue Fishing [Artist's Manuscript with Illustrations]

      [Norwich, CT], 1859. Hardcover. Very Good. Hardcover. A charming handwritten book from the mid 1800s featuring an illustrated comic story about two gentlemen from Norwich, CT who embark on a fishing trip to New London with their dog in hopes of catching many large blue fish. After renting a rowboat and then a sail boat - and spending many uneventful hours on the water - the men decide to give up. Not wanting to return empty-handed to the scorn of their lady friends, they purchase several bluefish from a more successful fisherman. Upon arriving at home, the ladies immediately suspect that the fish were not caught by the men and interrogate them until they confess. A happy ending completes the tale with everyone dining on blue fish. The book is "respectfully dedicated to Andrew Webster, Esq. by a Fellow Sufferer and Fellow Fisherman, H.V. Edmond, July 28, 1859." The pages are mostly disbound; however the original three quarter leather backed marbled paper covered boards are included. A diamond shaped leather title label reading "Blue Fishing / Illustrated by Edmond" is attached to the front cover. There is a large loss to the bottom front corner of the front cover and heavy wear to the edges of the boards. The interior is clean overall with finger smudges along the margins of some pages. This is one of three known copies of this manuscript, each of which differ slightly in both text and illustration. According to the records of the Slater Museum (who hold one copy), Edmond (1838 - 1894) lived at 42 Broadway in Norwich, CT. "He illustrated a book called the 'Norwich Jubilee' published by John W. Stedman on the occasion of the city's sesquicentennial showing the Wauregan and Union Square festooned for the occasion with banners that were no doubt his handiwork. A banner arches over Union Street with the word 'Wauregan' which in Mohegan means, roughly translated, 'all things good.' ... In 1880, Vermont born Henry V. Edmond, was listed in the census as [still] residing in Norwich with his eighteen year old son, fifteen and thirteen year old daughters, and his sixty four year old mother. In addition, two unrelated 'servant' females, aged twenty-three and thirty-five and born in Ireland, lived in the house. It seems the exuberant youth of 'Blue Fishing: Illustrated' had become a young widower. He is listed, at the age of 42, as employed as a 'bookkeeper.'" Size: 11.5 x 9 inches.

        Die sensiblen Nervenendigungen der Sehnen und Muskeln. Mit Unterstützung der kaiserlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften in Wien nach seinem Tode herausgegeben von Prof. O. Zoth, Graz.

Erste und einzige Ausgabe. - Selten. - Nicht in der Sammlung Waller verzeichnet. *** SCHÖN GESTALTETER ATLAS ZUR NERVEN-HISTOLOGIE ! *** Fischer I, S. 754: Ludwig Kerschner wurde 1859 in Beregszas/Siebenbürgen geboren, Studium der Zoologie in Wien und Graz. Promotion zunächst in Philosophie im Jahre 1880. Danach Studium der Medizin, 1883 Assistent am Histologischen Institut in Prag, 1884 Promotion zum Dr.med. in Graz. Hier Prosektor bei E. Zuckerkandl, 1889 in Brünn Übernahme der Prosektur der Landeskrankenanstalten und Habilitation für Zoologie. 1894 a.o. Professor in Innsbruck, hier stand er seit 1903 im Histologisch-embryologischen Institut als Ordinarius vor. Kerschner starb am 22. Mai in Innsbruck. *** "Es schien mir von einigem Werte für die Wissenschaft, daß die mühevolle Lebensarbeit KERSCHNERS nicht ganz verloren ginge. Leider war es mir trotz zweijähriger Arbeit nicht möglich, die vorhandenen zerstreuten Bruchstücke des Manuskriptes einer großangelegten Arbeit über die sensiblen Nervenendigungen des Bewegungsapparates so weit zu ordnen, zu vervollständigen und auszuarbeiten, daß das Werk gedruckt werden konnte. Dagegen gelang es doch wenigstens, das Wertvollste von jener Arbeit zu retten, nämlich die kunstvollen, mit bewundernswerter Sorgfalt und Genauigkeit ausgeführten Zeichnungen der zahlreichen für die Publikation bestimmt gewesenen Bilder von sensiblen Nervenendigungen in den Sehnen und Muskeln, welche durch die meisten neueren Publikationen weder erreicht noch überholt worden sind." (O. Zoth im Vorwort). *** Guter Erhaltungszustand, Einband etwas fleckig.

Blanck notes three binding states, but not this one, which lacks any spine imprint (but is otherwise like state A). The 1858 first edition (at least two printings, also with no author on the title page) was issued in mid-November. BAL notes copies of this large paper printing inscribed for Christmas by Holmes. INSCRIBED BY THE AUTHOR TO SARAH JOSEPHA HALE (on the second blank, in ink) "Miss Sarah J. Hale from her old friend and fellow-border O.W. Holmes". Sarah Josepha (Buell) Hale (1788-1879), from Newport, New Hampshire, was an influential American editor, poet, and novelist who penned the famous nursery rhyme "Mary Had a Little Lamb". Her popular novel NORTHWOOD advocated the removal of the slaves to Liberia. From 1828-36 she edited the Ladies' Magazine from Boston, and from 1837-77, Godey's Lady's Book. Hale was the first woman editor in America and it was she who made Godey's Lady's Book the forerunner of the modern women's magazines. She was mostly responsible for the adoption of Thanksgiving Day as a national holiday as well as being a staunch advocate for higher education for women, being one of the founders of Vassar College. She was also one of the earlier proponents of the publication of American literature, instead of British imports, in popular periodicals . When Hale was brought to Boston by the Rev. John Lauris Blake, she stayed at the same boardinghouse as Holmes, along with her youngest son. Dr Holmes, important physician, professor and author, moved into the boardinghouse in 1830 to study medicine at Harvard. During this time he wrote two essays about life as seen from the boardinghouse breakfast table, which were published in 1831 and 1832. They were the seed of this collection of essays, his most famous book, and its two sequels. Hale herself was the model for one of the boarders seated at the breakfast table and has been identified as "The Lady in Black Bombazine." A terrific American association copy of one of the great classics of 19th century American literature. Grolier Club American 100. Binding: Hardcover .
