        ON THE ANTISEPTIC PRINCIPLE IN THE PRACTICE OF SURGERY [with] ILLUSTRATIONS OF THE ANTISEPTIC SYSTEM OF TREATMENT IN SURGERY [With Four Additional Numbers of] THE LANCET, Volume II

      London The Lancet; George Fall Sept. 21 - Nov. 30, 1867 - First edition of these important articles and letters as printed in the journal ‘The Lancet’. Extracted from the various journal numbers and now presented bound together. 18pp, Folio journal leaves (265x185mm), bound together in grey paper-covered boards with manuscript lettering on the spine and housed in a black cloth-covered slipcase with folding chemise and lettered in gilt. Pages 353-358; 667-670; 409-410; 443-444; 501-502; 595-596. Very well preserved in fine state. SCARCE, JOSEPH LISTER’S SECOND OF TWO EPOCH-MAKING PAPERS ON ANTISEPSIS, one of the most important advances in all of medical science and quite possibly the one which has been responsible for the largest number of lives saved by a singe medical technique. In 1860 Lister was appointed Regius Professor of Surgery in Glasgow. As in other hospitals at that time, the mortality rate at Glasgow for amputations and compound fractures exceeded forty percent due to rampant infection. Lister had for some years been studying the processes of inflammation and suppuration, and in the early 1860's he "began declaring suppuration a form of decomposition. The prevailing medical doctrine about the cause of putrefaction derived from Liebig's dictum (1839) that organic substances in the moist state and in the presence of oxygen undergo a peculiar state of combustion" (DSB). The resulting supposition that wounds should be shielded from the effects of atmospheric oxygen led to often harmful treatments. "Lister realized that oxygen could not be excluded from wounds, and he soon doubted its responsibility for provoking suppuration" (op. cit.). In 1865 a colleague introduced him to the work of Pasteur, whose revelation of the causes of wound sepsis provided Lister "the key for the banishment of hospital diseases" (ibid.). "To prevent bacterial infection Lister began using carbolic acid, a chemical then used routinely by the city of Carlisle to disinfect sewage. In a series of surgical cases he succeeded in completely eliminating infection. Although Lister was in error in assuming that the primary sources of infection were airborne, he had established the principle that the control of infection depended on the control of microorganisms" (Grolier Medicine). Presented here is the second of Lister’s two main papers on antisepsis, ‘read to the British Medical Association at their Dublin meeting of August 9, 1867. Lister announced that consistent application of his antiseptic treatment had entirely freed his Glasgow wards from hospital sepsis. After acknowledging his debt to Pasteur, he details his recommended procedures and describes further case histories of patients treated since publication of his previous article. Like Semmelweis' recommendations for the implementation of aseptic hospital conditions a decade earlier, Lister's ideas initially encountered indifference or outright hostility in the surgical community, especially in Britain. Eventually a number of favorable reports, from German surgeons in particular, began to turn the tide, and by the eighties and nineties a return was made to the aseptic recommendations of Semmelweis. "Withe the further work of Ernst von Bergmann in Berlin, antisepis and clouds of irritating carbolic acid mist gave way in the 1880’s to aseptic surgery and the aseptic routines which characterize the modern operating room" (Grolier Medicine 75). In recognition of Listers services to humanity, he was the first medical practitioner to be elevated to the peerage.’ (Norman) Also included in this collection of journal extracts are Lister’s replies to unfounded accusations made by Sir James Simpson that Lister had plagiarized from works by surgeons in France and Germany, most specifically the French chemist Jules Lemaire. There is also one further follow up article included by Lister on his antiseptic methods. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Illustrations of Dissections in a Series of Original Coloured Plates the Size of Life Representing th eDissection of the Human Body. Atlasband.

      . London, Walton, 1867, Gr.Folio, 3 Bll., mit 58 farbigen ltih. Tafeln,. Halbledereinband der Zeit mit goldgeprägtem Rückenschild und Rückenvergoldung; Rücken erneuert.. Erste Ausgabe dieses großformatigen Tafelwerkes mit sorgfältig lithographierten anatomischen Abbildungen in Lebensgröße; "a fine anatomical Atlas of the period." Dawson, Cat. 91, 2139). - - "The school of anatomy at University College, London, in the first thirty-five years of its existence , produced remarkable series of illustrated anatomical lithographic plates, useful alike to students, as in J. Quain's Elements of anatomy, and to practising surgeons, as in R. Quain's Arteries, J. Quin's and Winlson's Anatomical Plates, Maclise's Surgical anatomy, Ellis's Dissections. Early in the same period Charles Bell, who remained only a short time at University College, produced work on the hand and on expression. During this period also Carswell and Marshall were productive ion the field of morbid anatomy and in anatomy respectively." - - " Ellis and his artist Ford chose the comparatively new method of chromolithography for the reproduction of their imperial folio atlas of fifty-eight plates. The printing of such complex plates in color was difficult, as chromolithography was still in a developmental stage; the plates were printed between 1863 and 1867, with four to seven finished each year. The plates are exceptional for accuracy and clarity; they are also exceptional for their aesthetic depiction of the dead" Anatomy as Art: the Dean Edell Collection No. 197. - - George Viner Ellis (1812-1900), "born near Gloucester, Ellis was apprenticed to a doctor in Gloucester and then entered University College, London, qualifying MRCS in 1835; he was elected FRCS at the first elections in 1843. Soon after qualifying he became Demonstrator in Anatomy at University College under Richard Quain and also spent vacations working in anatomy in Paris or Berlin. He never attempted to become a surgeon but remained in anatomy at University College, succeeding Quain as Professor of Descriptive Anatomy in 1850 and retiring in 1877. He held no official posts outside University College. He retired to Gloucester where he taught older boys in a night school and applied himself to gardening, particularly growing apples. He died in 1900, having been blind for the last two or three years of his life. - - Ellis was perhaps the first pure anatomist. His lectures made no attempt to make the dry subject more interesting but were well accepted by students because they stated clearly what had to be learn for examinations. He was a firm disciplinarian in his own classes and was once called in to quell misbehaviour in Grant's class. He hated smoking. Smoking in the dissecting room was firmly forbidden until a group of students petitioned the Council for leave to purify the atmosphere of the practical anatomy rooms with tobacco; the corpses at that time were not preserved. Ellis immediately threatened to resign and the sanction was rescinded. He was not overclean in his habits and it was not always appreciated, when he showed his approval for an industrious piece of dissecting by patting the student on the shoulder with hands 'too visibly subdued to that they worked in'. In a college epitaph he was described as: Beloved by few and feared by many, Discoverer of the corrugator ani. - - Early in his career he published Demonstrations of anatomy and together with Sharpey he was editor of Quain's Elements of Anatomy after 1856. With Ford, an artist, Ellis published in 1867 Illustrations of dissections in two volumes, one volume consisting of plates drawn by Ford from dissections by Ellis." O'Connor, W.J.: Founders of British Physiology (1988). - - Hirsch-H. II, 402. Roberts & Tomlinson, The Fabric of the Body, p.574. Rifkin/Ackerman, Die Kunst der Anatomie, p.282. - - "PREFACE. - - These Anatomical Plates exemplify the method of dissecting practised in University College, London ; and they are designed to serve both as patterns for the Student to copy in his dissections, and as aids to him in after-study. - - For the purpose of carrying out the pictorial representation of dissections the part of the human Body to be illustrated is divided into suitable stages or regions ; and the muscles, bloodvessels, and nerves of each region are shown in layers in the natural order of succession, so that their mutual connections may be brought before the eye at one and the same time. - - The Illustrations comprise views of the Head and Neck, the upper Limb, the Perinaeum, the Abdominal Parietes, the Pelvis, and the lower Limb ; and they are accompanied by a concise description of the objects displayed in each Plate, with a short notice of the practical applications of Anatomical facts to Surgery. All the Figures are drawn of life-size from actual dissections ; and they are printed in colours with the object of making them as true pictures as possible of Nature, and more serviceable as copies for the Student to imitate. Only such dissections were prepared for the Drawings as may be commonly seen in the practical Anatomy Boom ; and the minute detail, whose counterpart the Student with average manual dexterity could not produce without some difficulty and loss of time, was intentionally omitted. Delineations of the ligaments, the viscera of the cavities of the Body, and the organs of the Senses, are not included in the Plates now published. - - The labour connected with this Work was divided between its two authors, that part being apportioned to each which he was best fitted by previous knowledge and experience to execute. To Mr. Ford were assigned the original Drawings, and the chromo-lithography; and to him is due the merit of portraying with so much effect and exactness the natural appearance of the parts dissected. Upon me rests the responsibility of the selection of the Illustrations, the fidelity of the dissections, and the accuracy of the whole. - - During the progress of this undertaking, which has been continued through several years, other engagements have necessitated my having recourse occasionally to the senior Students of the College for the help of their hands. To those Students, and to Mr. Samuel Onley in particular, I gladly offer my thanks for their assistance. And to Mr. J.S. Cluff, Demonstrator of Anatomy, I am greatly indebted for the valuable aid he has afforded me at all times. - - Before closing this retrospect of the task now finished, I may advert to the difficulties attendant on the printing in colours of such complicated Figures, and to the successful way in which they have been overcome by Mr. West - - GEORGE VINER ELLIS. - UNIVERSITY COLLEGE, LONDON, September 2nd, 1867."

      Autograph Letter Signed ?James Buchanan?, 1.5p., 6.5? x 8?, front and verso . Lancaster, Pennsylvania, July 25, 1867. Letter written in a slightly shaky hand reflecting Buchanan?s age and impending death. Mailing folds else fine condition. Original postmarked envelope in Buchanan's hand included. This letter was written to the daughter (Laura) of his deceased friend, Stephen Pleasonton (1776?-1855). The content of the last paragraph concerns her father?s estate. Stephen Pleasonton was the first ?Fifth Auditor? of the United States? Treasury Department. However, he is best known for singularly saving the Declaration of Independence and US Constitution, along with many other invaluable early government documents. Right before the burning of Washington D.C. in 1814, then Secretary of State James Monroe charged Pleasonton with preserving the books and papers of the State Department. After removing the documents from the newly built White House, Pleasonton hid them thirty-seven miles away, in L

      A. Morel, Paris 1867 - (17 x 11 1/4 inches). 276 lithographic plates only (of 288, 178 coloured, 5 printed in two colours, 15 tinted, 79 un-coloured). Extra-illustrated with a duplicate of plate XII in the 17th volume. (About 6 plates shaved into the imprint area, and 10 plates with small tears, two plates with small sections chipped, some tears and repairs to the text leaves). Later brown half morocco by Whitman Bennett of New York, the flat spines titled in gilt A rare substantial fragment from this important record of the decorative tastes of the mid 19th century. Only two substantial runs of this fascinating periodical are listed as having sold at auction in the last thirty five years: most recently the McCarty-Cooper copy (covering a period between March 1850 and December 1867) was sold in New York in January 1992; and two years earlier an ex-library copy dated between January 1864 to December 1871 sold in New England. There are three aspects to this journal that are important: firstly, it offers a snap-shot of the taste of the time; secondly it gives quite detailed instructions on painting methods that have all but disappeared: there are only a few specialist decorative painters left who are capable of executing the designs and finishes described here, but armed with the instructions given here, these beautiful designs on a page could be 'brought to life' as part of an actual design scheme once again. Thirdly, this work offers a view of the state of French colour-printing: the quality of the images is perhaps surprising given the ephemeral nature of this publication, but the plates are of the highest quality. Some of the faux wood and marble panels are astonishing, as is the case with the best of the decorative tableaux. These are a mixture of what appear to be original designs by Petit, Bisaux or Pierre Chabat, or carefully copied from earlier eras - particularly the 18th century. Unsurprisingly, the earlier designs are almost exclusively French in origin. The Journal-Manuel was evidently well-regarded by the trade (architects as well as the craftsmen who executed the designs) as OCLC record that it was published for over fifty years, between 1850 and 1906.

Overall in VERY GOOD condition. Photos available upon request. Size: 18.5 x 15 inches (46 x 31 cms). LARGE. JOHAN GEORG JUSTUS PERTHES (1749-1816), German publisher, was born at Rudolstadt on the Iith of September 1 749. In 1785 he founded at Gotha the business which bears his name (Justus Perthes). In this he was joined in 1814 by his son Wilhelm (1793-1853), who had been in the establishment of Justus' nephew, Friedrich Christoph Perthes, at Hamburg. On the death of Justus at Gotha on the 2nd of May 1816, Wilhelm took entire control of the firm. He laid the foundation of the geographical branch of the business, for which it is chiefly famous, by publishing the Hand-atlas (1817-1823) of Adolf Stieler (1775-1836). Wilhelm Perthes engaged the collaboration of the most eminent, German geographers of the time, including Heinrich Berghaus, Christian Gottlieb Reichard (1758-1837), who was associated with Stieler in the compilation of the atlas, Karl Spruner (1803-1892) and Emil von Sydow (1812-1873). The business passed to his son Bernard Wilhelm Perthes (1821-1857), who was associated with August Petermann (under whose direction the well-known periodical Petermanns Mitteilungen was founded) and Bruno Hassenstein (1839-1902); and subsequently to his son Bernard (1857-). In 1863 the firm first issued the Almanach de Gotha, a statistical, historical and genealogical annual (in French) of the various countries of the world; and in 1866 the elaborate Geographisches Jahrbuch was produced under the editorship of Ernst Behm (1830-1884), on whose death it was continued under that of Professor Hermann Wagner.

        [AUTOGRAPH LETTER FROM TOURING PHRENOLOGIST TO WILLIAM S. HARBERT]

      Leighton, Pa., 1867. Softcover. Near fine. [4] pp., approximately 600 words. Bifolium on ruled paper, approximately 9.5 x 6 inches. Very minor soiling on first page, else near fine. Manuscript letter by a semi-crippled itinerant phrenologist describing his schemes and recent adventures to a confidant. The unsigned document is addressed to "Friend Harbert," whom a later pencil inscription indicates was William Soesbe Harbert (1842-1919). A native of Terre Haute, Indiana and later resident of Des Moines, Chicago, and Pasadena, Harbert was a prominent lawyer, judge, and advocate of progressive causes. He was celebrated for his escape from the infamous Libby Prison during the Civil War, from which he emerged weighing ninety-seven pounds, and was also notable as the husband of Elizabeth Boynton Harbert, a leader in the women's suffrage movement. At the time of the letter's composition, Harbert was completing his law degree at the University of Michigan. & & The precise relationship of Harbert to the author of the letter is unclear, but the latter states that Harbert is the "only one outside my family" to know an unnamed secret ("even my own mother don’t know it"). The secret appears to relate either to the author's fraudulent career or "some business" he mentions having to "settle up" back home. The author jokes that "open confession is good for the soul": "While I have experienced the keen fangs of excruciating mortification, of being, drawn on to a hot griddle, & broiled alive, before an audience, there is also a great deal of pleasure & satisfaction in the business. I am treated with the utmost respect & courtisiy, even in the first place.where I think, that it was pretty generaly conceeded, by most all in town that I was a humbug! in fact that opinion, was so prevalent that I thought so myself! Yet I more than made expenses. I am necessarily compelled to put on considerable style & I don’t stay long enough in one place to find me out till I lecture & then they take the bait! . I think I will try to get of a pretty good speache here, probably two, & the people are very ignorant, & they may not discover the diference. I have the satisfaction of knowing more about Phrenology than they do anyhow, & I put off a few technical names, describing the brain & skull &c so that closes the M.D.'s & I can handle the rest of the audience pretty well. Up to the present time I have not dared to venture into a town where there is a paper published for fear I get blown so high that I would not get back again." & & An extremely unusual, colorful piece of correspondence documenting phrenology as quackery by one of its own.

        Old Court

      London - Chapman and Hall 1867 - A scarce first edition of this novel by William Harrison Ainsworth. William Harrison Ainsworth (4 February 1805 3 January 1882) was an English historical novelist born in Manchester. Ainsworth briefly tried the publishing business, but soon gave it up and devoted himself to journalism and literature. His first success as a writer came with Rookwood in 1834, which features Dick Turpin as its leading character. A stream of 39 novels followed, the last of which appeared in 1881. With half-titles. The story follows the Chetwynd family. Sir Hugh, the oldest is competing with his younger brother Clarence for the affection of Amice. Having sworn never to speak to each other again, Sir Hugh follows Clarence to Kent with a proposition. However, at their secret meeting up by the famous grave, Clarence is murdered. After his brothers death, Sir Hugh discovers some distressing news Amice was in fact Clarences wife, and she is with child. He offers her everything, but she flees. (KM)Complete in three volumes. Condition: In brown cloth bindings. Externally sound, though with some bumping and rubbing. Internally, binding strained. Blindstamp of W. H. Smith to endpapers. Pagesare bright,thoughwith some patches of foxing to the endpapers. Overall: GOOD. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

Rare récit d'un voyage de 11 mois fait à travers l'Asie par un homme de 67 ans ("touriste âgé" comme il se définit). Les bibliographes (Cordier, Bib. sinica, p. 2130 ; Numa Broc, Asie, pp. 140-141) ne nous apprennent rien sur l'auteur, dont on ignore jusqu'au prénom. Homme du Second Empire, il est fasciné par la modernité et la vitesse (la distance qu'il parcourt en moins d'un an est impressionnante) et fort admiratif de la civilisation britanique et de la colonisation anglaise. Son ouvrage fourmille de renseignements utiles au voyageur (prix et durée des transports, description des hôtels.) et de descriptions pittoresques. Très bel exemplaire, la reliure étant lég. frottée mais très solide, l'intérieur très frais. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Traité expérimental et clinique de la régénération des os et de la production artificielle du tissu osseux.

      Paris, V. Masson et fils, 1867 - 2 vol. in-8; T.I: XX, 443 pp., 7 pl. h.t., (4 )pp. d'explication des planches; (4), 531 pp.; 2 pl. et 1 tabl. dépl. h.t. ; demi-chagrin brun de l'époque, traces de frottement, intérieur en très bon état, très frais. Première et seule édition, assez rare. Le premier tome est consacré à la partie expérimentale, le second à la partie clinique, et plus particulièrement à la chirurgie conservatrice des membres et à l'ostéoplastie. Ollier, suite à de nombreuses études expérimentales complétant celles de Flourens, a confirmé la formation de l'os à partir du périoste et a doté la chirurgie d'une méthode nouvelle basée sur la conservation du périoste. Il développa plusieurs genres d'opérations : les résections sous-périostées et sous-capsulo-périostées, et les ostéoplasties par déplacement de lambeaux périostés. Cet ouvrage valut à Ollier le prix de l'Académie de chirurgie et la Légion d'Honneur. Cet ouvrage est orné de 9 planches gravées sur cuivre et de 45 figures dans le texte. Léopold Ollier (1830-1900) fut professeur de clinique chirurgicale à Lyon. Il fut l'un des premiers à reconnaître l'importance de la physiologie expérimentale en chirurgie. Il se consacra à la chirurgie ostéo-articulaire conservatrice et plastique, devenant un pionnier de cette spécialité. Il fut correspondant de l'Académie de médecine et de l'Académie des sciences.

        HISTORY OF THE FRENCH REVOLUTION

      London: John Murray, 1867. First Edition in English n. Hardcover. 225 x 146 mm (8 7/8 x 5 3/4"). Four volumes. "Translated from the third edition of the original German work" by Walter C. Perry. First Edition in English. VERY PLEASING DARK BLUE HALF MOROCCO, ATTRACTIVELY GILT, BY ZAEHNSDORF for A. C. McClurg & Co. (stamp-signed on the verso of the front free endpaper), wide raised bands decorated with five parallel gilt rules, spine compartments with gilt frames composed of stippled rules connected to corner volutes, marbled sides and endpapers, top edges gilt, other edges rough trimmed. A hint of chafing to paper sides, occasional minor foxing, never offensive, other trivial imperfections, otherwise A VERY FINE SET IN EXCELLENT DECORATIVE BINDINGS, the leather unusually lustrous and virtually unworn, and the text very smooth and clean. This is a handsome set of the first printing in English of the masterwork by the German historian Heinrich Karl Ludolf von Sybel (1817-95). When he was 24, he published a study of the Crusades that won for him considerable recognition, but it was the present seminal work that changed the entire understanding of the revolutionary era in France. As Britannica says, "in this work he for the first time showed the connexion between the internal and external history of France; he was also the first, by a systematic study of the records, to check and correct the traditional account of many episodes in the internal history. His demonstration [for example] that letters attributed to Marie Antoinette were not genuine roused much interest in France. . . . The work was . . . the first attempt to substitute for the popular representations of Thiers and Lamartine the critical investigation which [was later] carried on with such brilliance by Taine and Sorel." This is an extremely scarce book in commerce: just one other (ex-library) copy seems to be advertised currently in the marketplace. Zaehnsdorf has done its usual outstanding job here of producing high quality bindings that are both pleasing to the eye and so durable as to seem very much like new for an extended period of time.
