Juli 1870, Prof. Binz (Bonn), z.z. Stabsarzt des Feldlazareths No. 2 beim 8. Armee-Corps, 2 pp.). - "Es ist anzunehmen, das zur Bekämpfung der unvermeidlichen septicämischen Zustände unserer Verwundeten die Carbolsäure äusserlich, das Chinin innerlich vielfach in erster Reihe stehen werden. ...". 6.: Weitere Studien über Chinin. (Separatabdruck aus der Berliner klinischen Wochenschrift, November 1871). Berlin, Gedruckt bei Julius Sittenfeld, 1871, 21, (1) pp. 7.: Quinine and the colourless blood-corpuscle (Lond., Practitioner IX (1872, pp.141-147), 7, (1) pp. 8.: Das Chinin. Nach den neuern pharmakologischen Arbeiten. (1875. - (2 Bl.), 76 pp.)."One of my most able students later examined several other substances with regard to the same quality, viz. conia, veratria, camphor, bichloride of mercury, arsenite of potassium, aconitine, digitaline, coffeine, sulphate of atropia, acetate of lead, kreosot, and oil of turpentine. He found that conia alone was equally poisonous to the white cells as quinine, but all other substances were inferior to it. .." C.Binz, Quinine and the colourless blood-corpuscles, 1872.Chinin vernichtet die Paramaecien - "Die erste und beispielhafte sorgfältige pharmakologische Untersuchung des Chinins vollzog Binz 1867. Er stellte fest, Chinin sei ein allgemeines Protoplasmagift das die Paramaecien und Amöben schon in der Verdünnung von 1 : 20 000 vernichtet. damit versuchte er, die Heilwirkung des Chinins auf die Malaria zu erklären, die er im Gegensatz zu der damaligen Auffassung als eine Krankheit ansah, die von einem protoplasmareichen Parasiten hervorgerufen wird. Diese Hypothese schien LAVERAN, der Entdecker des Plasmodium vivax 13 Jahre später zu bestätigen, als er 1880, beobachtete, daß die Malariaparasiten im Blut in vitro gelähmt und vernichtet werden. Indes benutze er so hohe Chininkonzentrationen, wie sie in vivo gar nicht vorkommen können. Auch seither befaßten sich viele mit dem Nachweis der direkten parasitociden Chininwirkung ..." "Die Verwendung von Chinin zur Hemmung von Entzündung beruht auf den Versuchen von Binz, der 1869 bei den Cohnheimschen Versuchen am Froschmesenterium beobachtete, das Chinin die Abwanderung der Leukocyten aus den Kapillaren unterbinde." "Die fiebersenkende Wirkung von Chinin führe Binz und später ISENSCHMID darauf zurück, daß Chinin die Tätigkeit der Fermente hemmt und den Stoffwechsel sowie die Wärmeerzeugung vermindert. Im Jahre 1925 fand jedoch HARDIKAR, Chinin senke nicht den Stoffwechsel, während neuerdings die Versuche von TEN CATE für die Binzsche Auffassung sprechen." Bela Issekutz, Gesch. d. Arzneimittelforschung (1971), pp.47-48"Fast ebenso bemerkenswert ist an der Auffassung von Binz, daß er eine vollständige Vernichtung sämtlicher Malariaerreger in einem infizierten Organismus durch Chinin für ausgeschlossen hält er meint vielmehr, daß dieses Alkaloid vor allem "dem heilbestreben der Natur günstig sekundiere". Bekanntlich entsprechen solche Vorstellungen weitgehend den heutigen Anschauungen über den Wirkungsmechanismus vieler Chemotherapeutica." Hans Haas, Spiegel der Arznei (1956), pp.30-31Beigelegt 8 weitere Arbeiten von Carl Binz:1.: Über den Einfluss des Weingeistes auf die Körpertemperatur bei gesunden und fiebernden Thieren (1869, 3 pp.). 2.: Über die Bedeutung der Ozonreactionen (1872, 7 pp.). 3.: Die Blätter von Eucalyptus globulus (1873, 4 pp.). 4.: Neue Curven über den Einfluss des Alkohols auf die Körperwärme (1873, 2 pp.). 5.: Neue Curven über den Einfluss des Alkohols auf die Cöperwärme (1873. 3 p.). 6.: Die therapeutische Verwendung des Bromkaliums (1873, 14 pp.). 7.: Über den Werth des reinen, mit vielem Wasser verdünnten Weingeistes ( d. i. unserer guten Weine) für die Ernährung (1875, 4 pp.). 8.: Zur Abwehr gegen Herrn H.

        Die Entwicklung der Carcinome (41: pp.470-523, 2 Taf. 55: pp.67-159, 5 Taf.).

      Virch. Arch. path. Anat., 41+55. - Berlin, Verlag von Georg Reimer, 1867, 8, VI, 591, (1) pp., 13 Tafeln 1872, 8, VI, 538 pp., 20 Tafeln 2 Halbleinenbände. Frist Edition! Heinrich Wilhelm Gottfried von Waldeyer (1836-1921) "confirmed the work of Thiersch on the epithelial origin of cancer, disproving Virchow's theory. So great was the authority of the latter that it was not until the appearance of the second of the above papers that Virchow's error was finally recognized"."Die bedeutendste Leistung Waldeyers als Pathologe aber ist seine in 2 Teilen erschienene Arbeit zur Histogenese der Karzinome 1867 und 1872. Mit dieser Arbeit wird Virchows Lehre von der bindegewebigen Genese des Krebses endgültig zu Grabe getragen, nachdem schon C. Thiersch in Erlangen und V. Cornil in Paris entsprechende Befunde vorgelegt hatten. Unmissverständlich sagt Waldeyer, dass man bisher nicht in der Lage gewesen sei, den Begriff Karzinom scharf zu definieren. Er setzt dagegen: Man könne sehr wohl eine positive Definition geben, eine Trennung in Karzinome und Kankroide sei überflüssig, "da die ersteren ganz dieselbe Epithelialentwicklung haben wie die so genannten Cancroide". Im ersten Teil der Arbeit (1867) erläutert dies Waldeyer am Beispiel des Mammakarzinoms und zeigt, dass an den mit gewucherten Epithelien angefüllten Acini die Basalmembran verloren geht, wie dies auch schon Cornil betont hatte. Gleiches gilt für den Magenkrebs:'Nachdem, was ich gesehen, wuchern die degenerierten Drüsen nach Durchbruch der Muscularis mucosae sehr schnell in die leicht ausdehnbare lockere Submucosa hinein'Cornil und Waldeyer sind damit die Ersten, die erkennen, dass alle Magenkrebse von den drüsigen, d.h. den epithelialen Bestandteilen der Magenschleimhaut ausgehen. Waldeyers Schlussfolgerung ist eindeutig:'Ich fasse somit das Carcinom im wesentlichen als eine epitheliale Neubildung auf und meine, dass es primär nur da entsteht, wo wir echte epitheliale Bildungen haben.'Im 2. Teil der Arbeit 1872 werden die Belege über die Herkunft der Karzinome erweitert. Jetzt stehen ihm 203 Fälle, vorwiegend Operationspräparate seiner klinischen Kollegen, zur Verfügung. Die Waldeyer-Lehre setzt sich in den folgenden Jähren mehr und mehr durch. Nur Virchow distanziert sich nie ausdrücklich von seiner Vorstellung der bindegewebigen Krebsgenese. " Georg Dhom, Gesch. Histopath., p.325

        White-Jacket; or The World in a Man-of-War

      New York: Harper & Brothers, 1867. Very Good. Reprint edition, unrecorded variant conforming to BAL second printing in third cloth binding, but with no date on the title page and no ads in the back (according to Richard Colles Johnson in The Book Collector 1982 this is an 1867 reprint edition, though no copies of such an edition have yet to be noted in OCLC). Contemporary pencil owner name (W.B. Wait), spinal extremities and small portions of the gutters and cloth perished, else a tight, very good copy. A somewhat underappreciated novel written shortly before Moby-Dick. Though it contains some of Melville's best black humor (particularly the hilarious Surgeon of the Fleet episode), the book is mostly noted for its contribution to the abolition of flogging in the U.S. Navy.

        Recherches sur la prothese des membres.

      Paris, P. Asselin, Successur de Béchet Jeune et Labe, 1867, 8, (4), 107, (1) pp., 8 Holzschitte, 2 lith. Brief Facsimile, feiner Halbleinenband. Erste Auflage! Mit eigenhändigem dreizeiligen signierten Geschenkvermerk von Félix Hippolyte Larrey (1808-1895) auf Titelblatt."Der naheliegende Gedanke, die in einem Stumpf zurückgebliebenen Muskelkräfte für die Bewegung einer künstlichen Hand auszunützen, findet sich zum ersten Male angedeutet in der schon oben zitierten Arbeit*) des Grafen Beaufort, "Recherches sur la prothese des membres, Paris 1867". Danach soll ein Zeitgenosse Larreys erwogen haben, die Sehnen eines Amputationsstumpfes mit den Fingersehnen einer künstlichen Hand in direkte Verbindung zu bringen, um auf diese Weise ihr eine normale Bewegung zu ermöglichen. Ausgeführt ist eine derartige Operation, soviel ich sehe, dagegen nicht."*) "Ein von dem Grafen Beaufort (1867) konstruiertes Modell, die sogenannt "Prothese du pauvre" erwarb durch den niedrigen Preis (25 Fr.) allgemeinere Verbreitung. Mit sehr einfachen und zweckmäßigen Mitteln wird bei ihr das Bailifsche Prinzip durchgeführt. Die Invaliden waren in der Lage, mit dieser künstlichen Hand leichtere Gegenstände zu fassen und zu halten für längere und schwerere Arbeit war sie dagegen nicht geeignet." Ferdinand Sauerbruch, Die willkürlich bewegbare künstliche Hand (1916), p.4,8"Der Comte de Beaufort entwarf Prothesen für die Amputierten des Krimkrieges und der Italienischen Kriege, in welche das Second Empire verwickelt war. Er beschrieb diese in seiner 1867 in Paris publizierten Broschüre "Recherches sur la prothèse des membre"s. Einige der Prinzipien von de Beauforts wurden modifiziert auch bei modernen Prothesen angewendet etwa künstliche Hände, die man öffnen und schließen kann, indem man wiederholt am gleichen Zügel zieht, die passive Flexion des Ellbogens durch Druck gegen einen Hebel seitlich am Thorax, der Doppelfederhaken zum Halten von Gegenständen, der dem gespaltenen Haken von Dorrance ähnlich ist.De Beaufort entwarf und stellte auch einfache, billige Prothesen für Unterschenkel- und Oberschenkelamputierte sowie am Knie Exartikulierte her. Diese wurden aus Holz und Kork hergestellt und mit Leder überzogen sie hatten einen kurzen kufenförmigen Fuß, der einen harmonischen Gang ermöglichte." J.P. Kostuik (Hrsg.), Amputationschirurgie und Rehabilitation: Erfahrungen der Toronto-Gruppe (1985), p.11"Rare first edition of this detailed and well illustrated guide to artificial limbs, written by Amédée Comte de Beaufort. A subject of great interest for many years, Beaufort describes a number of articulated devices of his own invention for amputations of both upper and lower limbs. Having been appointed as "d'inspecteur general adjoint des établissements de bienfaisance" in 1847 his motivation in particular was to help the less fortunate in society, with an emphasis on designing simple, practical and inexpensive prostheses, that would be more widely available. A further catalyst for his work was die Crimean and Italian campaigns of die 1860s which had left a vast number of amputees. The present work highlights a number of inventions, including his lightweight articulated wooden leg prosthesis, composed of two splints articulated at knee level, as well as his articulated arm and hand, which was controlled by die amputee through a shoulder harness. The Controlling power started with a strap buttoned into die front button of die trousers, passed through a loop to the opposite axilla, over to the amputated side to a pulley at the elbow, and then to the artificial hand. He also invented a simple hand with a movable thump and a more complicated one in which repeated pulls on die same cord opened and closed the fingers. As the present work reveals, Beaufort had presented his inventions for peer review, and had received the considerable praise and support of both Broca and Larrey, and which led to Army authorities adopting his models for their staff in 1864. The Assistance Publique also adopted both his "arm with a useful hand" and his articulated clamp hook for general use in civilian hospitals, a viable and much cheaper solution to alternative more realistic and expensive models."

        Visible Speech: The Science of Universal Alphabetics; or Self-Interpreting Physiological Letters, for the Writing of All Languages in One Alphabet. Illustrated by Tables, Diagrams, and Examples

      Simpkin, Marshall & Co, London 1867 - Inaugural edition, 1867, hardcover with original cloth boards and rebound new spine, small quarto, 126pp. + 16 plates, illustrated in b&w. Book VG with bright gilt letters to new spine, edgewear that tears cloth, rubbing, binding tight with new endpapers, endpapers on both ends reinforced with paper strips in gutters, inner gutters cracked, text toned throughout and shows foxing to edges of pages, otherwise unmarked. No DJ. In 1867, Alexander Melville Bell published the book Visible Speech: The Science of Universal Alphabetics. This book contains information about the system of symbols he created that, when used to write words, indicated pronunciation so accurately, that it could even reflect regional accents. A person reading a piece of text handwritten in Melville Bell's system of characters could accurately reproduce a sentence the way it would be spoken by someone with a foreign or regional accent. In his demonstrations, Melville Bell employed his son, Alexander Graham Bell to read from the visible speech transcript of the volunteer's spoken words and would astound the audience by saying it back exactly as the volunteer had spoken it.

        Étude critique sur le ramollissement cérébral

      Lyon, librairie médicale de J.-P. Mégret, 1867, , plaquette in-8, [2]-46 pages, broché, couverture muette moderne, Édition originale du tiré à part, extrait du Journal de médecine de Lyon. Henri Soulier (1834-1921) fut interne dans le service de Charcot à la Salpêtrière. Il sera nommé médecin à l'hôpital de Lyon en 1883 et deviendra le premier titulaire de la chaire de pharmacie de la toute nouvelle Université de Lyon. Cette étude est l'un de ses rares écrits de neurologie ; il y compile habilement les travaux d'Adrien Proust et de Jules Cotard. Il y démontre clairement la nature du ramollissement cérébral, soit une "nécrobiose produite par la cessation de l'activité physiologique du sang". Plusieurs remarques dans cet opuscule mettent en lumière l'opposition entre deux écoles, celles des internes de Charcot à la Salpêtrière et celle de Jean Laborde de l'hôpital de Bicêtre : "Laborde saw the cause of cerebral softening in the primary dilation of brain capillaries, but the for the house officers [...] cerebral softening was primarily caused by vascular occulusion." Envoi de l'auteur au titre, au Dr Carrier. Following Charcot, pp. 12-13.

        Lock of hair.

      No place or date. - A blond strand of hair, tied into a circular locket with pink string, mounted on a certificate of authenticity dated 1867. Matted. 8vo. The locket's provenance is accounted for by the included certificates of authenticity and confirmation of sale for nearly its entire first century: first, in the possession of the Weimar librarian and counsellor Theodor Kräuter (1790-1856), since 1805 a scribe at the Ducal Library and Goethe's private secretary from 1811 onwards; by descent to his nephew, the Weimar lawyer and writer Robert Keil (1826-96), who vouches for its authenticity on his drystamped, sealed stationery: "These are hairs of Schiller which belonged to the estate of the late librarian and counsellor Dr. Theodor Kräuter here in Weimar, former private secretary to Goethe. This is confirmed by Kräuter's nephew, Dr. Robert Keil, lawyer. Weimar, 20 April 1867". This certificate was probably occasioned by the relic's transfer to the Weimar Schillerhaus, the custodian of which was a distant relative of Keil's, the Weimar art dealer Eduard Lobe. But nine months later, Lobe sold the lock to the historically-minded Chicago lawyer and entrepreneur, Thomas Barbour Bryan (1828-1906): "This lock of Schiller's I have on this day sold to Mr. T. B. Bryan, and herewith confirm its authenticity. Weimar, 23 January 1868". Bryan is remembered as a sponsor of and Commissioner-At-Large for Chicago's 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. As early as 1860 he had exhibited G. P. A. Healy's portrait of Abraham Lincoln at his "Bryan Hall" gallery; in 1864 he had a lithographic facsimile of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation prepared which he sent the President for examination. - Acquired from an Austrian noble collection.

The second piece records similar text, being the minutes of a meeting held by the excursionists on June 7th at Fort Harker. The Union Pacific Eastern Division ran from Kansas City, Kansas through to Colorado Territory, where it joined up with the Union Pacific's main line by 1870. The railroad operated as the Kansas Pacific from 1869 to 1880.
