        Mémoire sur la Fermentation appelée lactique; Memoire sur la Fermentation alcoolique.

      Paris: Mallet-Bachelier, 1858; 1860. First printings, in the very rare offprint form (first paper inscribed by Pasteur), of these two landmark papers, "often considered the beginning of bacteriology as a modern science, [which constitute] the first demonstration of the connection between a specific fermentation and the activity of a specific microorganism" (Garrison & Morton); "A great milestone in biochemistry" (Neville II, p. 274). "Pasteur's first paper on fermentation contains most of the central theoretical and methodological features of his biological theory of fermentation, in particular the concept of fermentation as a product of the growth of yeast, the idea that air is a source of microscopic yeasts and other micro-organisms, and the notion of specificity, in which each fermentation could be traced to a specific micro-organism" (Dibner). "Pasteur's concept of fermentation as a biological process challenged the chemical theory of fermentation put forth by Liebig, which Pasteur was able to disprove with his experiments on alcoholic and acetic fermentation" (Norman). Provenance: The earlier paper is inscribed by Pasteur to the French physicist and chemist Pierre-Guillaume-Camille Forthomme (1821-84): "A Monsieur Forthomme, Professeur au lycée de Nancy, souvenir affectueux, L. Pasteur." "Pasteur's memoir ['Sur la Fermentation appelée lactique'] expressed the basic approach and point of view which informed all of his subsequent work on fermentation. After a historical introduction he began by claiming that "just as an alcoholic ferment exists-namely, brewer's yeast-which is found wherever sugar breaks down into alcohol and carbonic acid-so too there is a special ferment-a lactic yeast-always present when sugar becomes lactic acid" ... Throughout the memoir Pasteur more nearly assumed than proved that lactic yeast "is a living organism, ... that its chemical action on sugar corresponds to its development and organization," and that the nitrogenous substances in the fermenting medium served merely as its food. Nonetheless, his convictions were firm and his conception of fermentation was already remarkably complete ... With two striking exceptions this memoir contains the central theoretical and methodological features of all of Pasteur's work on fermentation-the biological conception of fermentation as the result of the activity of living microorganisms; the view that the substances in the fermenting medium serve as food for the causative microorganism and must therefore be appropriate to its nutritional requirements; the notion of specificity, according to which each fermentation can be traced to a specific microorganism; the recognition that particular chemical features of the medium can promote or impede the development of any one microorganism in it; the notion of competition among different microorganisms for the aliments contained in the media; the assumption that air might be the source of the microorganisms that appear in fermentations; and the technique of directly and actively sowing the microorganism presumed responsible for a given fermentation in order to isolate and purify it. The two missing features, which soon completed Pasteur's basic conception, were the technique of cultivating microorganisms (and thereby producing fermentations) in a medium free of organic nitrogen and his notion of fermentation as "life without air" ... "In December 1857 Pasteur published the first in a series of abstracts, notes, and letters on alcoholic fermentation that culminated in a long and classic memoir of 1860 ['Memoire sur la Fermentation alcoolique']. Divided into two major sections, dealing respectively with the fate of sugar and of yeast in alcoholic fermentation, it inflicted on the chemical theory what Duclaux called "a series of blows straight from the shoulder, delivered with agility and assurance." Pasteur established that alcoholic fermentation invariably produces not only carbonic acid and ethyl alcohol-as was well known-but also appreciable quantities of glycerin and succine acid as well as trace amounts of cellulose, "fatty matters," and "indeterminate products." On the basis of these results, Pasteur emphasized the complexity of alcoholic fermentation and attacked the tendency of chemists since Lavoisier to depict it as the simple conversion of sugar into carbonic acid and alcohol. If the alleged simplicity of the process had formerly been seen as evidence of its chemical nature, he argued, then its actual complexity ought now to be seen as evidence of its dependence on the activity of a living organism. In truth, the complexity of alcoholic fermentation was such as to prevent the writing of a complete equation for it, a fact which was only to be expected, since chemistry was "too little advanced to hope to put into a rigorous equation a chemical act correlative with a vital phenomenon." "However impressive this line of attack against the chemical theory, an even more decisive mode of argument derived from Pasteur's ability to produce yeast and alcoholic fermentation in a medium free of organic nitrogen. To a pure solution of cane sugar he added only an ammonium salt and the minerals obtained by incineration of yeast, then sprinkled in a trace of pure brewer's yeast. Although the experiment was difficult and not always successful, this method could produce an alcoholic fermentation accompanied by growth and reproduction in the yeast and the evolution of all the usual products. If any one constituent of this medium were eliminated, no alcoholic fermentation took place. Obviously, argued Pasteur, the yeast must grow and develop in this mineral medium by assimilating its nitrogen from the ammonium salt, its mineral constituents from the yeast ash, and its carbon from the sugar. In fact, it is precisely the capacity of yeast to assimilate combined carbon from sugar that explains why it can decompose sugar into carbonic acid and alcohol" (DSB). "Educated at the École Normale Supérieure, Forthomme was professor of physics at the high school of Nancy for many years (where he had [Henri] Poincaré as a student), prior to obtaining the chair of the faculty of chemistry [at the University of Nancy] in 1869. Well-known to the intellectual circles of Nancy, he was a member of the municipal council and would sponsor the candidature of Léon Poincaré [Henri's father] to the Académie de Stanislas in 1862" (de Paz & DiSalle, Poincaré, Philosopher of Science, p. 8). Much-abridged versions of the two papers appeared in the Comptes rendus de l'Académie des Sciences (Paris) in 1857; 'Mémoire sur la Fermentation appelée lactique' appeared almost simultaneously in the Mémoires de la Société des Sciences, de l'Agriculture et des Arts de Lille, 2nd series, 5 (1858). The only recorded offprints were prepared from the Annales de Chimie et de Physique. Dibner 198; Garrison-Morton 2472 and Horblit 82 (abridged version); Norman 1653 (offprint), all for the earlier paper. Brock, Milestones in Microbiology, pp. 27-30. 8vo (219 x 135 mm), pp [1-3] 4-106; [1] 2-15 [1:blank but with manuscript annotations, probably by Forthomme], both offprints bound together in early 20th century cloth, first and final leaf with some browning.

        Oak Lectern from St Augustine's Abbey Ramsgate.

      142cm high x 50cm wide. A Victorian Gothic Revival oak lectern. The reading slope over two cupboards, one with shelved interior, each with panelled doors, the side panels with Gothic trefoil inserts and pilasters with carved foliate capitals and tracery, with an integral solid platform. Lacking one shelf, a couple of capital leaves missing, but in very good condition. An attractive piece. From St. Augustine's Abbey in Ramsgate. This lectern was used in the Refectory of the Abbey for readings during meals. AWN Pugin built his famous house, known as The Grange, on the cliffs above Ramsgate in 1843-4. From 1845 he built, at his own expense and under his close supervision, the neighbouring church of St Augustine, to which were added its associated cloister, sacristy, school and priest's house. Pugin had acquired land to the north of the church on which he proposed to found a monastery, thus completing his ideal Catholic community, but did not live to see this ambition realised. On his death in 1852 control of the church passed to Thomas Grant, the first Roman Catholic Bishop of Southwark, who in 1856 entrusted it to a group of British Benedictine monks from the abbey of Subiaco in Italy. In 1860-61 a gift from the wealthy Catholic convert Alfred Luck, Pugin's friend and fellow Ramsgate resident, allowed permanent accommodation to be built for the monks. This comprised the present south and west ranges, designed by AWN's son Edward Welby Pugin. The monastery, which incorporated a school (demolished in 1973), was made a priory in 1881, and was raised to abbey status in 1896. In 1904 the present east wing was added, to a design by Edward's half-brother Peter Paul Pugin. In 1926 the Bergh Memorial Library was built to house the collection of books left by the bibliophile Abbot Bergh; the architect was Edward's nephew Charles Henry Purcell, who had himself been educated at the monastery school. Further additions, including the north range and the west gateway, were carried out in 1934-7 by Charles Canning Winmill. In 1976 a link block was added connecting the west range and the library. Edward Welby Pugin (1834-75) was the eldest son of the great Gothic Revival architect AWN Pugin. He inherited his father's burgeoning practice at the age of 18, and continued to develop it with tireless energy. The focus remained firmly on the Roman Catholic Church, but Edward developed a distinctive High Victorian style that combined increased elaboration of detail with a simplified approach to church planning. His major works in England include the churches and monastic buildings at Gorton in Manchester and Belmont in Herefordshire (churches both Grade II*). He lived at the Grange from 1862, and made a number of additions to both the house and the church. (English Heritage website). The Refectory from which this lectern came, was part of the west wing designed by Edward Welby Pugin. In 2011 the monastery decided to move to smaller premises and fixtures and fittings from the Abbey were sold, amongst some consternation, through auction.

        Paris Moderne: Plan d'une ville Modèle que l'Auteur a appelée Novutopie.

      Paris: Libraires du Palais-Royal, 1860. Duodecimo, uncut; original blue paper wrappers, manuscript inscription on front cover. First edition: a proposal for a 'new utopia' founded on pacifist principles.In 1859, a Franco-Italian alliance had sought to repel Austrian aggression in northern Italy, but the French people had been sickened by the losses, and Napoleon III had hastily signed an armistice. It is in this moment of anti-war sentiment that Paris Moderne is situated. Whilst the author proudly claims to have served forty years in the army, this is an essentially pacifist plea in which both the political goals and the heavy loss of life are brought into question in a movement which anticipates the role of war in a mechanized society. That is, battles are reduced to the tragic mathematics of attrition so familiar from later conflicts: in the case of the battle of Eylau, four thousand French in return for six to eight thousand Austrian.His fear is that this culture of war has become so engrained in the public that whole generations exist who regard war as normal, and for whom literature has become nothing more than the bulletins of armies.Although he dreams of a new utopia not brought up 'au bruit du tambour,' he poignantly quotes Cobden: 'La guerre viendra, hélas! toujours trop tôt... '.

        Major General J Ogilvie Sed Book. Manuscript

      1860. An Interesting Scottish Law Suit [Trial]. [Manuscript]. [Ogilvie, John (1783-1847)]. [Major Genl. J. Ogilvie Sed. Book Vol. 2. (Spine title, item complete, see below)]. [Likely Edinburgh, 1860s-1871]. [iv], 270 pp. Folio (13" x 8-1/2"). Three-quarter calf over marbled boards. Some rubbing to extremities with chipping to spine ends, corners somewhat worn, text in various neat hands. $750. * From the Oriental Bank Company of Bombay, India to Edinburgh. Here is the story of Major General John Ogilvie and the trustees who settled his complicated estate over a protracted period among feuding family members. In this scenario, it would be a half-sister who would be fighting for a share in the disputed estate versus her sister-in-law. The rights of a woman legatee, in this case the General's widow, were at stake as were the widow's desire to fulfill her husband's wishes. General Ogilvie served in the Honorable East India Company Madras Army. He died without issue and was survived by his widow, Helen Ogilvie [1785-1867]. Helen Ogilvie decided to bequeath the estate to her husband's half-brother, James Ogilvie, but to omit another half-brother, Archibald Ogilvie from the estate. Her decision to exclude Archibald Ogilvie-the widow pointedly stated-was the wish of her deceased husband. But Helen's decision now opened the door to a legal challenge by General Ogilvie's half-sister, Isobel Ogilvie Miller, and Isobel's husband. They too now made a claim on the estate. This challenge came to a head on January 25th, 1870 in the court decision John Duncan and Others (Trustees of General Ogilvie) represented by the Solicitor-General's office via Clark-Munro vs. Mrs. Isobel Ogilvie or Miller and Husband, represented by Fraser and Watson. The case was heard and decided by the entire four-judge bench of the First Division of the Court of Session at Edinburgh, the supreme civil court of Scotland. Despite the designation "Volume 2," this volume forms a complete record created by legal solicitors on behalf of the trustees of General Ogilvie's estate. Volume 1 and any other volumes covered, we assume, other aspects of the suit. The records are in chronological order from 1849 to 1871, but appear to have been gathered as a final record book of the estate's settlement in 1871, following an 1870 Court of Session decision. The volume contains.

The collection with framed photographs comes with free international DHL Express shipping. William Henry Fox Talbot (11 February 1800 ? 17 September 1877) was a British scientist, inventor and photography pioneer who invented the salted paper and calotype processes, precursors to photographic processes of the later 19th and 20th centuries. His work in the 1840s on photomechanical reproduction led to the creation of the photoglyphic engraving process, the precursor to photogravure. He was the holder of a controversial patent which impacted the early development of commercial photography in Britain. He was also a noted photographer who contributed to the development of photography as an artistic medium. He published The Pencil of Nature (1844?46), which was illustrated with original salted paper prints from his calotype negatives, and made some important early photographs of Oxford, Paris, Reading, and York.

[Bound with:] A Letter to the Board of Visitors of the Greenwich Royal Observatory in reply to the calumnies of Mr. Babbage at their meeting in June 1853 and in his book entitled The Exposition of 1851. London: G. Barclay, 1854 [And with:] Correspondence respecting the Liverpool Observatory [- Supplement]. London: G. Barclay, 1845. [And with:] A Reply to Mr Babbage's Letter to "The Times," "On the planet Neptune and the Royal Astronomical Society's Medal." London: G. Barclay, 1847. [And with:] 'A Memoir of the late Rev. Richard Sheepshanks, M.A.' Offprint from Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, Vol. XVI, No. 4. London: G. Barclay, 1856.

      London: G. Barclay, 1845-1860. A possibly unique collection of pamphlets, all first editions, documenting the decades-long dispute between Babbage (1791-1871) and his archenemy Sheepshanks (1794-1855), but also involving Sir James South (1785-1867) and Sir George Biddell Airy (1801-1892). "In a section [of Exposition of 1851] called "Intrigues of Science" Babbage accused Airy of being part of a vendetta against him and influencing government against his engines through personal allegiance to Babbage's enemies. The villain of the piece (according to Babbage) is the Reverend Richard Sheepshanks, an astronomer with an early training in law and a close friend of Airy" (Swade, p. 186). Sheepshanks replied in A Letter to the Board of Visitors (1854), which was re-issued in 1860 together with a thirty-seven-page addition containing correspondence by South and Sheepshanks and relevant extracts from Babbage's Exposition [in this copy, only the 'addition' from the 1860 issue of A Letter to the Board of Visitors is present, the main text being that of the 1854 first edition]. "This was one of several "piquant pamphlets" which "remain to illustrate the science of our century, and will furnish ample materials to the future collector of our literary curiosities" (De Morgan). Another dealt with the award of the 'Neptune medal;' a third, in 1845, with the affairs of the Liverpool observatory. "When asked why [Sheepshanks] allowed himself to enter into such disputes, he would reply that he was just the person for it; that he had leisure, courage, and contempt for opinion when he knew he was right" (De Morgan in Examiner, 8 Sept. 1855)" (Agnes Mary Clerke in DNB). These documents shed light not only on the behind-the scenes politics of Babbage's attempts to secure funding for his difference and analytical engines, but also on the wider scientific politics of the period, notably the class conflict between amateur and professional scientists. In the mid-nineteenth century, "science was becoming institutionalized and also more conservative. As in the case of the Analytical Society, once again the central group of academic men of science was based in Trinity College, Cambridge... and included Whewell, Airy and Sheepshanks. Far more conservative than the Analyticals, without anyone with anything like the scientific ability of Babbage or Herschel, this group played a crucial part in the academic establishment and the embryonic scientific bureaucaracy" (Hayman, p. 149). The animosity between Babbage and Sheepshanks dates from 1830, "a period of turmoil in the Royal Society, whose amateurishness was seen by a number of leading scientists as scandalous; and [Sir James] South supported the attacks on the Society's establishment mounted in 1830 by Charles Babbage [in his Reflections on the decline of science in England], by publishing a pamphlet of thirty-nine Charges against the President and Councils of the Royal Society" (Hoskin, p. 177). South, a leading observational astronomer, was elected President of the Royal Astronomical Society in 1829, with Sheepshanks as Secretary. The two rapidly began to feud, and Babbage, as a friend and supporter of South, was dragged in. "Babbage alleges in Exposition that Sheepshanks was twice thwarted by Sir James South in the politics of scientific affairs. Babbage had supported South on both occasions. On the second occasion, a meeting at the Admiralty about the Nautical Almanac, Sheepshanks, a belligerent stirrer who loved nothing better than a scrap, threatened Babbage as they left the meeting room: 'I am determined to put down Sir James South and if you and other respectable men will give him your support, I will put you down.' "The third confrontation between the two men occurred during the notorious court case between South and the instrument makers Troughton and Simms over an allegedly defective telescope mounting supplied by the company for South's Campden Hill Observatory. The cause célèbre split the scientific community and the 'astronomers' war' was one of the bitterest of the century. The ever-combative Sheepshanks was prominent in the hostilities and volunteered to act for Troughton. Babbage was lined up on the other side and testified in 1834 as an 'expert witness' in favour of South who had a reputation as an 'unpleasant maverick' and is described by Hall as 'irascible almost beyond the bounds of sanity when engaged in controversy'. After Babbage had been cross-examined he found himself alone with Sheepshanks in the courtroom. Babbage alleged that Sheepshanks threatened him and attempted to intimidate him before the cross-examination which was to continue the following day. He alleged that Sheepshanks said that Babbage's allegiance to South made it necessary to discredit him and that 'he would at some future time, attack me publicly on another subject' because of his support for South. Babbage took the 'other subject' to mean his calculating engines. Babbage then completed the chain with the link to Airy. He asserted that through Airy's friendship and allegiance to Sheepshanks, Airy had become party to Sheepshanks' scheme to discredit him and that Airy was one of the dark forces behind the obstructions that had been placed in his path ... "Sheepshanks maintained that the 'other subject' on which he threatened to attack Babbage was not the calculating engines but Babbage's failure to fully discharge his duties as Lucasian professor of mathematics at Cambridge. Babbage did not reside in Cambridge during his occupancy of the chair which he held between 1828-39, nor did he teach. Resentment of what was perceived as an abuse was widespread and Airy evidently shared in this. "The logic of Babbage's case against Airy reduces to a tortuous allegation that Sheepshanks was conducting a vendetta against Babbage because of Babbage's support for South (for whom Sheepshanks had expressed loathing) and that Airy was personally hostile to Babbage out of sympathy with Sheepshanks, Airy's close friend. The loop is closed with Babbage's allegation that Airy's grudge influenced his judgements against the engines, and his advice to Government was therefore malicious" (Swade, pp. 186-8). "The middle 1840s saw no reduction in the vigour with which Sheepshanks sought out controversy, and in 1847 he made himself - if possible - even more hateful to Babbage by defending the RAS actions over medals for the discovery of Neptune, in contradiction of criticisms Babbage made in a letter to The Times" (Hoskin, p. 200). The competing claims of Adams and Le Verrier to priority in the discovery of Neptune split the RAS. A vote on the recipient of their gold medal for 1846 at their February 1847 meeting resulted in a stalemate and deferral. A majority of three to one was required to award the medal to Le Verrier, and Airy, along with four others, opposed it, causing the motion to fail. Airy finally got a proposal to pass that would defer the decision to the April meeting on whether they should award two medals for that year, one each to Le Verrier and to Adams. On March 15 Charles Babbage wrote a frustrated letter to The Times proposing that Le Verrier should receive the 1846 medal, as was moved in February, and that Adams should receive a special medal in 1847 for his part in the discovery of the new planet. According to their proceedings published at the end of the year, it appears that neither mathematician received the medal, as the Society found it impossible to choose between them. Sheepshanks, as Airy's faithful supporter, responded in A Reply to Mr Babbage's Letter. Sheepshanks continued his proxy war with South on another front by engaging in a bitter controversy with the Liverpool cotton broker, astronomer and poet John Taylor. A close ally of South, Taylor was a maverick who condemned those who blew "the ecclesiastical trumpet" in scientific disputes, and bitterly resented those who would limit authority to those who had "an M.D., an F.R.S., an F.R.A.S.L." appended to their names. The dispute stemmed from criticisms made by Taylor to Sheepshanks' proposed location for the Liverpool Observatory. Taylor also took issue with Sheepshanks' view that the purpose of the observatory was merely to "get, keep and communicate true Greenwich time to the great port of Liverpool." The two men exchanged a series of letters in the Liverpool Times, but the ultimate response from Sheepshanks was his pamphlet Correspondence respecting the Liverpool Observatory. In the Supplement Sheepshanks set out to criticize Taylor for an article that appeared in the Liverpool Mercury on 5 September 1845 entitled 'A new cometarium' - this was an instrument for determining the geocentric ecliptic latitude and longitude of a comet. After Taylor's death in 1857, the cometarium passed into the renowned collection of scientific instruments owned by South (it is now in the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford). But it was Babbage who landed the final blow in his war with Sheepshanks. To the anonymous review of Babbage's Exposition published in The Mechanics Magazine of 24 January 1852 was appended a sensational letter from South, stating that "on the late Mr. Troughton's word to me, the Reverend Richard Sheepshanks had asked Mr. Troughton to let one of his men go to the Custom-house to clear, as an English instrument, a circle of [the French maker] Jecker's, on which Mr. Sheepshanks had had engraved the name of "Troughton," to evade duty." "Sheepshanks now found himself in a very difficult situation. The complaints made by Babbage in his book had merely related to a private conversation that had taken place long ago, and conversations are open to interpretation... But the substance of the charge was true: in 1823 or thereabouts, the future Reverend Sheepshanks, FRS, had had Troughton's name forged in order to deceive the customs and evade the duty prescribed by law. The culprit merely highlighted his own embarrassment by later arguing that on balance he had been the loser in his various encounters with the Revenue, and that everybody smuggled" (Hoskin, p. 201). Babbage pressed home the attack at the Anniversary Meeting of the Royal Society in 1853. Despite Airy's attempt to prevent it, Babbage read out South's letter to The Mechanics Magazine and asked Sheepshanks directly if the charges were true. He admitted two charges and denied the other two, but his defence was cut short by the meeting. "The prospect of a further attack from Babbage at the next meeting of the Greenwich Visitors [i.e. the trustees of the Royal Observatory] spurred Sheepshanks to honour an earlier pledge to publish an apologia. "Sheepshank's polemic "in reply to the calumnies of Mr Babbage" was not yet complete by the time of the meeting of the Greenwich Visitors, but he distributed unfinished copies to those attending. At the Anniversary Meeting of the Royal Society that November he arranged for completed copies of his defence - running to no fewer than 92 pages - to be handed out to Fellows as they entered the building. When the next Anniversary Meeting took place he would be dead" (Hoskin, p. 203). "Even then this was not the end of it. So bitter was the feud that the enraged South published an attack on the Astronomical Society's obituary ['A Memoir of the late Rev. Richard Sheepshanks, M.A.']" (Swade, p. 188). All these pamphlets are rare. We have located only one other set at auction (Sotheby's 23 March 1971, lot 14), probably the present copy.

        Les Cantinières de France

      Paris: F. Sinnett, éditeur, 1860. Twenty-Five Fine Female Costume Plates in Panorama Form Six Copies Only Located in Libraries and Institutions Worldwide [PANORAMA]. Les Cantinières de France [Designed and Lithographed by C. Maurice]. Paris: F. Sinnett, éditeur, Galerie Colbert, 10., ca. 1860. First (only) edition. Sixteenmo (5 7/8 x 4 inches; 150 x 102 mm.). Panorama extending to approximately 100 inches (2550 mm.), containing twenty-five colored lithographed plates enhanced in color by hand. Publisher's red pebbled cloth over boards, front cover decoratively stamped and lettered in gilt. Light rubbing/wear to extremities of covers. Neat blue ink inscription on front paste-down. With the printed booksellers label of Vve. Bouchard also on front paste-down. Cantinière or a Vivandière is the French name for women attached to military regiments as sutlers or canteen keepers. Their pretty uniforms coupled with implied good looks as well as an almost saintly disposition led them to appear in numerous contemporary printed material, notably cheap prints and pamphlets. Their actual historic function of selling wine to the troops and working in canteens led to the adoption of the name 'cantinière' which came to supplant the original 'vivandière' starting in 1793, but the use of both terms was common in French until the mid-19th century, and 'vivandière' remained the term of choice in non-French-speaking countries such as the USA/CSA, Spain, Italy, and Great Britain. Vivandières served in the French army up until the beginning of World War I, but the custom (and the name) spread to many other armies. Vivandières also served on both sides in the American Civil War, and in the armies of Spain, Italy, the German states, Switzerland, and various armies in South America. The term Cantinière replaced Vivandières-Blanchisseuses in 1852. Rare with OCLC and KVK locating only six copies in institutions worldwide: Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY); New York Public Library; US Military Academy at Westpoint (NY); Smithsonian Institution (DC); Brown University (RI), and Libris Consortium (Stockholm, Sweden).

        Essays and Reviews.

      London: John W. Parker and Son,, 1860. Octavo (216 x 136 mm). Contemporary half calf and marbled boards, spine ruled and decorated gilt in compartments, red morocco label, marbled edges. Gift inscription dated 1969 to front free endpaper. Head of front joint lightly rubbed; a very good copy. First edition of this groundbreaking collection of theological essays, the first assault on Biblical literalism from within the ranks of British theologians. The edifice of literalism had been crumbling for several decades, under assault from the science of Lyell and Darwin and the new Biblical criticism of Baur and Strauss at the University of Tübingen. "But all these were outside the Church of England, and it was thus with a double force that Essays and Reviews, when it generally became known, struck clergy and laity. Not only did the book subscribe to the modern non-literal concept of the Bible text, but, far worse, the authors were with one exception beneficed clergy, and the majority came from the sanctuary of Oxford" (PMM 348). Two of the contributors, Rowland Williams and Henry Bristow Wilson, were found guilty by the Court of Arches, though the verdict was overturned by the Judicial Committee of the Privy Council, and in the long-term the Church came to accept much of what the essayists advocated.

        Des conditions pathogéniques de l'albuminurie COPY SIGNED

      Paris, Rignoux 1860 - In-4° broché, exemplaire de thèse de la Faculté à grandes marges du doctorat de médecine de Jaccoud avec un envoi autographe de sa main sur le premier plat, 168 pp. François Sigismond Jaccoud (1830-1913), médecin né à Genève, naturalisé français en 1862. Il est nommé professeur de Pathologie interne en 1877. Il a traduit la Clinique Médicale de Graves et dirigé le Nouveau Dictionnaire de médecine et de chirurgie pratiques (Sources : La Grande Encyclopédie de Berthelot, Tome 20, page 1155). Parmi ses nombreux écrits, son traité de Pathologie Interne fut, vu le nombre de rééditions successives, son plus important écrit - - - Sigismond Jaccoud (20 November 1830 - 26 April 1913) was a Swiss physician. Sigismond Jaccoud was born in 1830 in Geneva, where he went to school and was educated in music and the science of literature. In 1849 he went to Paris to study medicine - and supported himself in that city teaching music and literature. He became interne des h?pitaux in 1855. After graduation in 1859 he specialised in internal medicine and in 1860 defended his doctoral thesis, on the pathogenesis of albuminuria. In 1862 he became medecin des hopitaux, in 1863 professeur. In 1877 he was appointed professor of internal pathology at the medical faculty and member of the Académie Nationale de Médecine. In 1898 he became president of the Academy. Jaccoud was a very famous and highly estimated lecturer at several of Paris' hospitals - L'Hôpital Saint-Antoine, l'Hôpital de la Charité, l'Hôpital Lariboisière and l'Hôpital de la Pitié-Salpétrière. Following the death of Ernest-Charles Lasègue (1816-1883) in 1883, he was also made professor of internal medicine at the Pitié hospital in Paris. In 1883 he published a three-volume work on pathology, comprising almost 3.000 pages. In rheumatology, and partly in cardiology, Jaccoud was probably best known for his 23. Lecture, which has been perpetuated in medical history because of its description of Jaccoud's syndrome. At the turn of the 20th century rheumatic fever ravaged among children and youth, and the fact that there was, unlike today, no rational pharmaceutical therapy available, interest concentrated on the natural course of the disease. As he published his lectures in book form, they are still available for study - covering an impressive variety of medical questions. On tuberculosis, the greatest medical problem of the time, with its numerous complications, no less than ten lectures were needed. In his books he emphasised how he enjoyed thorough clinical examinations, epidemiology, research and teaching. Jaccoud died in 1913, at the age of 83 years. Jaccoud published numerous articles in Dictionnaire de Médecine et de Chirurgie pratiques of which he was co-publisher. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Soft Cover]
