        Der Bär an der Kette Lithographie Nr. 1/30 vom Künstler signiert !!!!!.

      Lithographie Nr. 1/30 vom Künstler signiert.guter ZustandGeorg August Gaul (* 22. Oktober 1869 in Großauheim - heute ein Stadtteil von Hanau 18. Oktober 1921 in Berlin) war ein deutscher Tierbildhauer im Übergang vom Historismus zur Moderne. August Gaul war der Sohn von Philipp Gaul (1840-1910), von Beruf Steinmetz, und dessen Ehefrau Katharina (1838-1882). Erste Anregungen für seinen späteren Beruf erhielt er in der Werkstatt des Vaters. In einer Silberwarenfabrik absolvierte er eine Lehre als Modelleur und Ziseleur, seit 1884 war er Schüler an der Königlichen Zeichenakademie in Hanau. Mit Unterstützung seines dortigen Professors, des Bildhauers Max Wiese, ging er 1888 nach Berlin, wo er zunächst im Bildhaueratelier von Alexander Calandrelli arbeitete und Kurse an der Abendschule des Kunstgewerbemuseums belegte. Nachdem er 1890 eine Dauerfreikarte für den Berliner Zoologischen Garten gewonnen hatte, betrieb er dort intensive Zeichenstudien, oft schon früh am Tage. 1894 nahm er ein Studium an der Berliner Kunstakademie auf, in der Klasse des Malers Paul Meyerheim, dessen besondere Stärke die Darstellung von Tieren war.1895 begann Gaul seine Tätigkeit als Meisterschüler im Atelier von Reinhold Begas, damals der führende Vertreter des Neobarock in der Berliner Bildhauerschule. Begas überließ ihm die Arbeit an zwei der vier Löwen für sein Kaiser-Wilhelm-Nationaldenkmal vor dem Berliner Stadtschloss. Das Denkmal wurde 1950 abgetragen, die Löwen stehen jetzt vor dem Raubtierhaus im Tierpark Berlin-Friedrichsfelde. Ein Preis, den die Akademie ihm für ein Relief zuerkannt hatte, ermöglichte Gaul 1897/98 einen Studienaufenthalt in Italien. Nach seiner Rückkehr erlangte er größere Bekanntheit durch seine Skulptur der zwei Römischen Ziegen, die er auch auf der Pariser Weltausstellung von 1900 zeigen konnte. 1898 gehörte er zu den Gründungsmitgliedern der Berliner Secession, eines Zusammenschlusses von Künstlern wie Max Liebermann, Louis Tuaillon und Walter Leistikow, die sich gegen den vorherrschenden akademischen Kunstbetrieb wandten seit 1902 war er im Vorstand der Secession tätig. Im Jahre 1900 heiratete Gaul in Berlin-Wilmersdorf Clara Haertel (1874-1940), die beiden bekamen zwei Töchter und einen Sohn.Geschäftsführende Sekretäre der Secession waren die Vettern Bruno und Paul Cassirer, die in Berlin eine Kunstgalerie besaßen. Die Galeristen vermittelten Gaul kaufkräftige Kunden wie den Unternehmer Eduard Arnhold, den Zeitungsverleger Rudolf Mosse, den Maler Max Liebermann und den Reeder Albert Ballin. Zu den frühen Interessenten gehörten auch Museumsdirektoren wie Alfred Lichtwark, der 1906 neun Tierskulpturen für die Hamburger Kunsthalle erwarb. Derartige Kontakte boten zumindest finanziell einen zufriedenstellenden Ausgleich für einige vergebliche Versuche, in Berlin Aufträge für größere Werke im öffentlichen Raum zu bekommen. Zu den engeren Freunden des Bildhauers gehörten seine Berufskollegen Bernhard Heising und Ernst Barlach sowie der Maler und Zeichner Heinrich Zille. Mit dem lebensfrohen Paul Cassirer freundete sich der eher introvertierte August Gaul besonders an (im Freundeskreis war die Rede von Paulchen und Gaulchen), der Galerist war auch in Gauls Todesstunde an dessen Seite und versuchte später, den künstlerischen Nachlass sinnvoll zu regeln. August Gaul wurde 1908 zum Professor an der Akademie der Künste ernannt und 1919 in die Ankaufskommission der Berliner Nationalgalerie berufen. Er starb 1921 kurz nach seiner Ernennung zum Senator an der Akademie der Künste, ohne dieses Amt noch antreten zu können. Sein Ehrengrab der Stadt Berlin befindet sich im Feld 7 auf dem Berliner Friedhof Dahlem.Zum WerkVon seiner Ausbildung her und durch die Arbeit bei Reinhold Begas war Gaul dem Historismus verbunden, speziell dem Neobarock, einem repräsentativen, zuweilen pathetischen Stil mit anspruchsvollen Motiven und oft komplizierten Formen. Sein Studienaufenthalt in Italien 1897/98 brachte eine grundlegende Umorientierung. Über den Bildhauer Louis Tuaillon (1862-1919), der sich zwischen 1885 und 1903 in Rom aufhielt und seinerseits von Adolf von Hildebrand (1847-1921) beeinflusst war, lernte Gaul dessen Lehren und Arbeitsweise kennen. Hildebrand lebte seit etwa 1870 abwechselnd in Italien und München. Seine Skulpturen waren gekennzeichnet durch ruhige Formen und durch Verzicht auf alle Details, die zum Verständnis des Ganzen entbehrlich waren damit bildete er einen künstlerischen Gegenpol zu Begas. In der Schrift Vom Problem der Form in der bildenden Kunst beschrieb er 1893 seine Vorstellungen.In der Folge orientierte sich August Gaul an diesen Vorgaben und übertrug sie auf seine eigene Arbeit. Er betonte die plastischen Qualitäten, zeigte die Tiere in ruhiger, typischer Haltung, konzentriert auf das Wesentliche, weitgehend frei von stofflich begründeten Strukturen. Mit dieser sachlichen Auffassung nahm er Charakteristika der beginnenden Moderne vorweg. Zeitgenössische Beobachter erwähnten mehrfach einen Bezug zu altägyptischer und antiker Skulptur, mit der sich Gaul auseinandergesetzt hatte so schrieb der Kunsthistoriker Emil Waldmann 1919: Erst wenn er dann ägyptische und etruskische und archaisch-griechische Dinge ansah, wußte er, wie man der Natur gegenüber treten müsse ...[1]. Derartige Vergleiche mussten an der Oberfläche bleiben, sie konnten nur die Formgebung betreffen. Der religiös-symbolische Hintergrund der frühen Bildwerke hatte für Gaul keine Bedeutung. Er selbst beschrieb seine Arbeit so: Ich will gar nicht die Natur pedantisch imitieren, sondern das Typische und ihren seelischen Kern festhalten. Vor allem will ich eine plastische Arbeit machen (...) Was mich bei den Tieren anzieht, ist ganz wesentlich künstlerischer Art. Ich mache Tiere, weil es mich freut.[2]Im Zentrum des Lebenswerkes steht eindeutig die Tierplastik. Nur drei Darstellungen von Menschen sind bekannt, darunter ein Eselsreiter im Foyer des Rathauses Berlin-Spandau, für den der Sohn des Bildhauers Modell stand. In Berlin finden sich zwei kleinere Brunnen mit Enten und Schwanenküken, vorwiegend interessierte sich Gaul jedoch für nicht domestizierte Tiere wie Löwen, Bären und Affen, Widder und Wisente, Seelöwen, Pinguine und Fischotter. Zwei Wisent-Skulpturen zieren die Freitreppe der Kieler Kunsthalle[3].Für eine Große Stehende Löwin bekam er auf der Secessions-Ausstellung 1901 viel Beifall, das Werk stand bis nach Ende des Zweiten Weltkriegs im Garten der Berliner Villa von Eduard Arnhold, jetzt ist es im Museum Großauheim zu finden. Die Großplastik Kämpfende Wisente, 1912 in Königsberg (jetzt Kaliningrad) aufgestellt, gehört zu den bekanntesten Monumenten der Stadt. Ein großformatiger Adler, ursprünglich von Albert Ballin für die Toreinfahrt seiner Hamburger Villa in Auftrag gegeben, steht seit 1923 als weithin sichtbares Fliegerdenkmal auf der Wasserkuppe in der Rhön. Zwei weitere Exemplare werden in der Kunsthalle Hamburg und in der Alten Nationalgalerie in Berlin aufbewahrt. Einige von Gauls Tierplastiken sind in seinem Geburtsort Hanau-Großauheim zu sehen, so am Rochusplatz, vor der Schule am Brunnen (benannt nach einem von Gaul gestalteten Brunnen im Bereich Hauptstraße/Hanauer Landstraße) und im Museum Großauheim.Die Metallskulpturen Gauls wurden in der angesehenen Bildgießerei Hermann Noack in Berlin hergestellt und, soweit es sich um kleinere Formate handelte, bei Cassirer in eng begrenzter Stückzahl angeboten. Nach dem Tod des Künstlers legten Paul Cassirer, Barlach und Gauls Schüler Max Esser in einer Liste fest, welche beispielhaften Arbeiten noch in limitierter Auflage gegossen werden sollten. Gauls Schwiegersohn, der Mann seiner Tochter Charlotte, ignorierte die Empfehlung der Fachleute und ließ sehr bald eine größere Anzahl von weiteren Motiven gießen.(wikipedia)

        Portrait photograph by Philippe Halsman inscribed to Waldo Frank, 1934

      Superb portrait by Philippe Halsman, gelatin silver print, 6 x 4 1/2 inches on 9 3/8 x 7 inch mount, signed "Halsman Paris" on the mount beneath the image and with his stamp on verso of the mount. A fine presentation inscription by André Gide (1869-1951): "pour Waldo Frank en affectieuse souvenir André Gide." Waldo Frank (1889-1967) -- American novelist, critic and political activist -- wrote extensively for 'The New Yorker' and 'The New Republic' in the 1920s. In his memoirs, Frank wrote: "My first personal encounter with Gide was a parable. Gide invited me to lunch and was to pick me up at noon at the offices of NRF... Gide rushed in, a little late... 'Come,' he grasped my arm, not my hand. 'there's a big fire... the magasins du Printemps are on fire. I have a police pass.' He pushed me into the waiting taxi, 'Do you like fires? I never miss a fire.'..." Of Gide's work, Frank wrote: "Gide's general theme is the disintegration of the self, as the self has been regarded by the centuries of the Judeo-Christian culture. It is still believed in, still defended. But the revealment that this self is doomed and no new form of the self yet emerged from our cultural chaos gave Gide timlessness and power" (Frank, Memoirs, University of Massachusetts Press, 1973, pp.117-118). Philippe Halsman opened his Montparnasse studio in 1934 and photographed many well-known artists and writers. Gide was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature in 1947. Anglo-American auction results record only one inscribed photograph by Gide.

        The New and Heretofore Unfigured Species of the Birds of North America

      Published by the Author, New York 1869 - (23 3/16 x 18 1/8 inches). 1p. list of 71 subscribers. 73 hand-coloured lithographic plates (including the additional "Parus occidentalis" plate bound between plates I and II in vol.I; 1 plate by and after Elliot and Joseph Wolf, printed by D. McClellan & Brothers of New York; 72 printed and coloured by Bowen & Co. of Philadelphia, after Elliot [55], Joseph Wolf [15] or Edwin Sheppard [2], drawn on stone by Ch. P. Tholey (11), 'M.P.' (14), 'H.J.S.' (3) or 'L.H.' (1) and others), 21 wood-engraved vignette illustrations, on india paper mounted, by W.J.Linton after Edwin Sheppard. Contemporary 19th-century green half morocco over green cloth-covered boards, spines lettered in gilt, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt A spectacular work with very fine generally life-size hand-coloured lithographs of species not previously pictured by either Alexander Wilson or John James Audubon, and particularly on birds of the American West, here with an additional plate that is not recorded by the standard bibliographies. Elliot describes his aims in the preface: "Since the time of Wilson and Audubon, no work has been published upon American Ornithology, containing life-size representations of the various species that have been discovered since the labors of those great men were finished. The valuable productions of Cassin, as well as the revised edition of the ninth volume of the Pacific Rail Road Report, the joint labor of Messrs. Baird, Cassin and Lawrence had indeed appeared . but no attempt had been made to continue the works of the first great American naturalists in a similar manner . It was, therefore, with the desire to contribute . towards the elucidation of the comparatively little known species of the Birds of North America, their habits and economy, as well as to render their forms familiar so far as life-size representation of them might serve to do, that I undertook the present publication." Over half of the plates in the work are devoted to birds of the American west, including California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas and the Rocky Mountains, with many of the remaining depicting birds of the Alaskan and Arctic regions. The specimens pictured by Elliot were derived from a number of sources, but included birds brought back from government-sponsored overland expeditions to the West, as well as from private sources such as John Xantus de Vesey. The plates for Elliot's work (with the exception of plate 17 in volume II) were executed by Bowen of Philadelphia, the same lithographer as in Cassin's continuation of Audubon. The project, however, would prove the last for the noted firm, as it closed down shortly after the present work was completed. The plates are taken from originals by Elliot and one of the greatest ornithological artists working in the second half of the nineteenth century: Joseph Wolf. In particular, Wolf's image of the Iceland Falcon (the second plate in volume II) must rank as one of the great bird portraits of all time, and is a worthy successor to the images in Audubon's own masterpiece. The story behind the additional plate is perplexing and illusive. Auction records show that copies with an additional plate have been sold at auction nine times in the past thirty years. These nine appearances represent at least three different copies of the book and possibly as many as eight, so the presence of the 73rd plate in the present copy is not unique. In the text (which does not call for a plate) Elliot notes that the bird which the additional plate pictures ("Parus Occidentalis") it is not a new species at all, but a mis-identified Black-capped Chickadee ("Parus Atricapillus"). If this conclusion was reached by Elliot at a late stage in the book's production then he could have been in the position of having a supply of the plates completed, but with no reason to include them in a book on birds that had not been pictured before. Strangely, none of the standard bibliographies mention the existence of this additional plate. Anke [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Our American Cousin: A Drama, in 3 Acts

      [New York:] Printed, But Not Published, 1869, 1869. First edition. Fine copy.. 12mo, original blue wrappers, 46 pages. The most famous play (of many) by Tom Taylor (1817-1880) and arguably the most famous play of the 19th century: it was being performed at Ford's Theater, Washington, D.C., on April 14, 1865, when halfway through Act III John Wilkes Booth shot Abraham Lincoln - thus immortalizing a farcical comedy which otherwise would have been long since forgotten. The American rights to Our American Cousin were purchased by New York theater owner Laura Keene in 1858. It was immensely popular and was still being performed more than ten years later, but there was no printed version of it until this one in 1869. Keene had shrewdly stated on the title-page that it was "Printed, but not published" - a step taken to protect her valuable rights from unscrupulous theater owners who could produce plays that had been "published" because copyright laws did not give them adequate protection. On the verso of the title-page is list of the cast at the first performance at Ms. Keene's theater on October 15, 1858, which included Joseph Jefferson. Manuscript title on the upper wrapper.

        Menes and Cheops Identified in History Under Different Names: With Other Cosas

      London: Longmans, Green and Co 1869 - London: Longmans, Green and Co., 1869, First Edition. 8vo - 22.9cm. (7), 343 pp., (24) - publisher's advertisements. Publisher's brown cloth with Egyptian fret design de-bossed borders on covers, black facing winged serpents on front cover with black fret border; spine with bright gilt titles and gilt ruling at top and bottom; sepia clay end leaves, half-title page, frontis plus 4 woodcut illustrations, one comparative chart and one diagram. No prior ownership markings, binding strong and in near fine condition, no foxing. A complete copy of a very scarce publication. This is Carl von Rikart's rationale for aligning the chronology of Egyptian dynasties with the history of the bible. Rikart demonstrates the conflicts and variations of earlier similar attempts at establishing Egyptian chronologies covering 20 dynasties as laid out by Egyptologists Reichardt (Richard) Lepsius, Christian Bunsen, Edward Lane and William Osburn.

        Weite Campagnalandschaft.

      - Bleistift, auf chamoisfarbenem Velin, rechts unten bezeichnet und datiert „Campagna di Roma. 14. April 1869", verso Nachlaßstempel. 21,8:30 cm. – Verso: Felslenabbruch. Bleistift. Eindrucksvolle Landschaftsstudie, entstanden zu Beginn des 1. Italienaufenthaltes! Kanoldt war Schüler von Friedrich Preller d.Ä. (1804-1878) in Weimar. 1869-1872 lebte er in Rom und wurde dort von Heinrich Dreber, gen. Franz-Dreber (1822-1875) entscheidend beeinflußt. Nach einem kurzen Aufenthalt in München kehrte er 1873 wieder nach Italien zurück. Dort engagierte er sich erfolgreich für die Rettung des berühmten Eichenhains „La Serpentara" bei Olevano, der für die deutsch-römischen Maler als Studienterrain große Bedeutung erlangt hatte. Mittels gesammelter Spendenmittel erwarb er den von Abholzung bedrohten Hain und vermachte ihn dem Deutschen Reich „als unveräußerliches und unantastbares Nationaleigentum". Seit 1876 war er in Karlsruhe tätig, wo er sich besonders an Ferdinand Keller (1842-1922) anschloß. 1892 rettete er die „Serpentara" erneut, da sie zu verwildern drohte.

        Victorian Textiles- Lace Sample Book] "Cahier de Dentelle"

      [1869], [France] 1869 - Original brown paper covered boards, cloth spine. 80 unnumbered pages. A manuscript Victorian lace sample book entirely written in fine handwriting (fountain pen) by Marie Vachoiz and comprising 70 original samples of hand-made crocheted, knitted, and bobbin lace samples, 68 of them beautifully mounted on thick coloured paper and then tipped-in, two tipped-in directly onto the sheets (lightly ruled paper). Title page: "Chahier de Dentelle (in heavy lettering) [starting of penciled lettering] [a string of numerals ] 1869, Marie Vachoiz." The quality of the lace presented here represents a significant expertise and polish in producing handmade lace. The text details 81 different patterns in manuscript (with 70 actual samples) and at the end offers a few pages discussing the specifics of producing knitted and crochet laces. An important work in the sense of its teaching parameter, rarely found thus, with examples and copious explanations, in manuscript form, and the extent of these suggest a work perhaps made in anticipation of publication. The superb patterns detailed in elegant cursive include those M. Vachoiz has identified as the Spider, the Laf, Tortoiseshell, the Scale, Pyramids, Snowflake, Valencian, and many others. A superbly preserved survival, with all the examples in perfect condition. Boards somewhat worn at corners, well-preserved internally. Laid in is a fine pen and ink engraving transferred onto gold leaf paper (unknown if this was owned by the author or laid in by a subsequent owner).

        MANUSCRIPT EUROPEAN TOUR BY AMERICAN FAMILY IN 1869/70

      ANON [Avery Family] Journal to the Continent in 1869-70 by a resident of Utica, N.Y. Bound in worn leather notebook.Internally very readable and tidy. The journal covers part of a European tour which begins in New York in October 1869 and ends in Geneva at the end of April 1870. It consists of a 247 page transcript from the letters written by the traveller mostly to her sister Lillie in Utica, New York State. Although not identified (though probably identifiable), the writer is accompanied by another sister, both of them from Utica. They in turn are travelling with 'the Averys'. This family we can identify - Benjamin Franklin Avery, his wife Susanna, and their children. Benjamin Franklin Avery was born in Aurora NY in 1801. After studying law, he went on to set up a highly successful plow factory in Louisville, Kentucky, said to have become, by the end of the nineteenth century, the largest manufactory of plows in the world. The party cross the Atlantic in the 'Malta', stop in Liverpool, Chester and Coventry on their way south to London. They engage in sight-seeing, listen to a sermon by Mr Spurgeon, visit the Field Lane Ragged School, and attend the opening of Blackfriars Bridge. In mid-November they sail from Southampton to Le Havre and move on to Paris. They meet J.R. Walker and his wife with whom they have mutual friends in Utica. They do much sight-seeing, sometimes with the guidance of Mr Walker. In December the Averys take their children to Geneva to place the boys in a boarding school and meet up with the two ladies later in Avignon. From Marseilles they head along the coast through Nice and Menton to Genoa, and at the end of December reach Rome. After six weeks visiting the sights of Rome including religious services at which the Pope was present, they move on to Naples. Here they take in the usual sights - Baiai, Pompeii, the royal palaces. Only Mr and Mrs Avery take on the ascension of Vesuvius: Mrs A. went up to the crater, aided in the ascent by a guide who with a strap over his shoulders pulled her after him as he mounted to the summit. The fatigue and exhaustion on her part was so great that she fainted, but a glass of wine and a few minutes rest restored her and was soon able to follow the party. In Salerno on their way to Paestum, they meet three ladies from South Carolina, the Misses Campbell and two from Elisabeth, N.J., Miss Magee and Mrs Fonda, bound for the same destination. Bad weather prevents their reaching Capri to see the Blue Grotto, so they return to Rome, where more visits are made and Gertie Avery sits for a portrait by Thomas Buchanan Read. By the beginning of April they are in Florence, glad to have left Rome 'as there is something of a panic among the Americans caused by the Roman fever which has carried off so many Americans'. After nearly three weeks in Florence the party moves north, but in Bologna the writer has an 'attack of Rheumatic fever' and is treated by an Italian physician. While she recovers, the Averys visit Venice and the party is reunited in Milan. At the end of April they reach Geneva where the Avery children are at the station to meet them on their arrival. Here the journal comes to an end. Visit our website on www.johnunderwoodbooks.com for other interesting books!

      On offer here is an 1869 Wisden Cricketers Almanac in entirely original condition apart from the facsimile wrappers. 1869 is commonly regarded as the second scarcest Wisden after the 1875 edition. The copy on offer here has been recently fitted with facsimile wrappers which are in excellent, as new condition. The remainder of the book is entirely original. The title page has the odd very minor mark and the contents page has a little, very light foxing as does the last page - at page 120. Apart from this the contents are in absolutely immaculate, clean condition - original, unmarked and clean. A really excellent example of a very scarce year.

      Liberty, MO: Wm. D. Wymore, 1869. Printed broadside, 7 3/4 x 11 3/4, employing several sizes and styles of type, including bold capitals for the head. Wymore (1835-1894) apparently took over the "Thompson House" Stables from a relative, George W. Wymore, who had established the business in the late 1840s. This copy appears to be a proof, with an editing mark in ink, changing the March date to "15" from a single digit. Not recorded on OCLC. Snag in the center affecting one word, soiled; still a good example of a rare illustrated trade broadside. (#5047).

Invention of the modern otoscope.\" - *** Zu II.) „Weber, Karl Otto, zu Heidelberg, Chirurg und pathol. Anat., geb. 29. Dez. 1827 zu Frankfurt a. M., in Bremen erzogen, studierte von 1846 an in Bonn, wo er sich mit besonderer Vorliebe den Naturwissenschaften widmete, wurde 1851 Dr. med. mit der Diss.: »Ossium mutationes osteomalacia universali affectae«, machte 1852 eine wissenschaftl. Reise nach Paris, wurde noch in demselben Jahre Assistent an Wutzer`s chir. Klinik und erlangte als solcher, bei Zunahme des Alters und der Sehschwäche desselben, frühzeitig eine grosse Selbständigkeit im chir. Denken und Handeln. 1853 habilitierte er sich als Dozent der Chir., gab sich fortab auch mit grossem Eifer pathol.-anat. Forschungen hin, für deren Gründlichkeit mehrere in diese Zeit fallende Arbeiten die besten Belege abgeben. Daher kam es, als ihm, nach dem Rücktritte Wutzer`s vom Lehramte (1855), die durch Busch 1856 wieder besetzte Professur nicht zu Teil wurde, dass er von dem Lehrkörper die Aufforderung erhielt, sich ganz der bis dahin in Bonn speziell noch nicht vertretenen pathol. Anat. zu widmen. W., der noch 1 Jahr bei Busch Assistent blieb, ging darauf ein, wurde 1857 a. o., 1862 ord. Prof. der pathol. Anat. und widmete sich diesem Fache mit ganzem Eifer. Daneben leitete er die chir. Abteilung des evangel. Spitals und blieb dadurch auch als Chirurg, wenn auch in geringem Umfange, praktisch thätig. Inzwischen hatte er auch, nächst den wesentlich praktischen »Chirurgische Erfahrungen und Untersuchh.« (Berlin 1859), eine Reihe ihrem Inhalte nach zusammengehöriger und einen sehr entschiedenen Fortschritt der Wissenschaft darstellender pathol.-anat. und histol. Arbeiten verfasst. Diese Arbeiten erschienen zum Teil erst, nachdem W. bereits (Ostern 1865), infolge des Rücktrittes von Chelius, die Professur der Chir. und die Direktion der chir. Klinik in Heidelberg übernommen hatte, wie denn überhaupt in die letzten Jahre in Bonn und das erste Jahr in Heidelberg seine kolossalste litter. Arbeitsleistung fiel; denn ausser diesen Arbeiten und einigen anderen, brachten die Jahre 1865 und 66 die von W. verfassten, ganz vorzüglichen, an Gediegenheit und Vollständigkeit des Inhalts, an Beherrschung der gross angelegten Formen vortrefflichen grossen Abschnitte in Pitha-Billroth`s Handb. der allgem. und spez. Chir., nämlich: »Die Gewebserkrankungen im Allgem. und ihre Rückwirkung auf den Gesammtorganismus« (I.) - »Krankhh. der Haut, des Zellgewebes, des Lymphgefässsystemes, der Venen, der Arterien und der Nerven« (II, Abt. 2) und »Die chirurg. Krankhh. des Gesichtes« (III, Abt. 1, Heft 2). Seine letzte Arbeit: »Praktische Miscellen« (D. Klinik, 1867) enthielt 7 verschiedene prakt.-chir. Mitteilungen über Gipsverbände, plastische Operatt., Totalexstirpat. der Parotis u.s.w. Daneben finden sich auch bedeutende Veröffentlichungen W.`s auf dem Gebiete der Biographie und Geschichte. Nachdem W. in Heidelberg bald in eine äusserlich glänzende Stellung gekommen und die Abtrennung der bis dahin mit der chirurg. Klinik verbundenen Augenklinik eingeleitet hatte, wurde er 1867 von einer Angina, mit anfangs krupösem, später diphtherischem Charakter befallen, der er 11. Juni 1867 erlag.“ Vgl.
