        Handbuch der operativen Chirurgie. Erster Theil (all. publ.)

      . Deutsche Ausgabe vom dem Verfasser u. Prof. C.W.F. Uhde. - Braunschweig, Friedrich Vieweg, 1870, 8°, XXII, 482 pp., 743 Abbildungen, feiner Halbledereinband mit 5 Bünden und Rückenvergoldung; feines Exemplar.. A GENIUS OF PLASTIC SURGERY - Erste und einzige Ausgabe eines der seltensten und inhaltsreichsten Bücher zur plastischen Chirurgie. In über 20 jähriger Tätigkeit als medizin. Buchhändler ist es das erste Exemplar in meinen Händen! - Der schon mit 39 Jahren verstorbene Autor gehört zu den vergessenen Pionieren der Plastischen Chirurgie. In Riga geboren, besuchte er die kaiserl. Universität Dorpat um von Adelmann, dem Nachfolger des großen russischen Chirurgen Piorgoff, zum Wundarzt ausgebildet zu werden. Erste Erfahrungen sammelte er im Krimkrieg. 1858 kam er als Professor an die Alexander-Universität Helsingfors, im damals russisch besetzten Finnland. 1861 geht er als Professor der operativen Chirurgie an die kaiserl. St. Wladimier Universität nach Kiew. In einer glänzenden Privatpraxis konnte er dort seine große Arbeitskraft entfalten. 1863 wird er zu den russischen Truppen, die die polnische Revolution unterdrückten, kommandiert. Während des kurzen Preussisch - Österreichischen Krieges (1856) besuchte er verschiedene Lazarette in Deutschland. An einem Testikel - Carcinom erkrankt, wird Szymanowski 2 mal von Pirogoff operiert. Auf einer Erholungsreise nach Deutschland u. Ostende stirbt er im April 1868. - Julius von Szymanowski(1829-1868), ein großes Talent und ein brillianter Techniker, war neben Pirogoff der bedeutendste Chirurg Russland. Sein besonderes Interesse galt der Plastischen Chirurgi e. Auf diesem Gebiet hat er ganz Hervorragendes geleistet. Erstmalig nach Einführung der Anästhesie gibt Szymanowski in seinem Handbuch eine umfassenden Überblick der Plastischen Methoden. Nicht mehr Schnelligkeit, sondern eine exakte , gewebeschonende Technik steht im Vordergrund. Viele von späteren Autoren, ohne Quellenangabe, beschriebene Techniken werden hier erstmalig abgehandelt. Auf über 300 Textseiten, mit vielen minutiösen, künsterlerisch hochwertigen Abbildungen werden die dermatoplastischen Operationen beschrieben. Besonders ausführlich sind die Operationsformen bei Hautdefekten und Substanzverlusten durch sehr anschauliche Darstellungen erklärt. Wangen-, Augenglid- und Lippenbildung erfahren eine eingehnde Schilderung. Operationen der Hasencharte, die Rhinoplastik und Ohrenbildung folgen. Der Abschluss bilden die plastischen Operationen an Rumpf, Extremitäten und Urgogenitalsystem. - Das hier angebotene Quellenwerk enthält wahrscheinlich mehr und profundere Beiträge zur Platischen Chirurgie als irgendein anderes Werk des 19. Jahrhunderts. Wegen seiner fabulösen Seltenheit ist dieses "Bilderbuch" fast unbekannt geblieben. Es ist weit rarer als die Schriften von Taliacozzi, Carpue, Graefe und Dieffenbach. - - FIRST EDITION. One of the rares works on plastik surgery. The Handbuch was v. Szymanowski's magnum opus. It contained more about plastic surgery than almost any other 19th century book. "The text and illustrations in v. Szymanowski's Handbuch are so rich in detail that it is really unfortunate that the book is available in so few medical libraries in the world (and equally rare in private collections). In my expierence during the last 30 years of gathering the basis rare books in plastic surgery, I have not seen the book listed for sale, even once, in any of the numerous rare book catalogues sent to me during that period ... the book is extremly difficult to obtain - even from the best of rare bookdealers." B.O. Rogers, N.Y. - Szymanowsky, a native of Riga, who studied at Dorpat, was one of the most distinguished Russian surgeons. In 1858 he went to Helsingfors as professor of surgery, and in 1861 he accepted a call to Kiew where he acquired a great reputation. He was undoubtelly a brillant man of great talent, especially in the operative technicalities of surgery. - In the Foreword of the present work Szymanowski states: "But this book is also going to the west. The book will be a token of my great gratitude and my frank regard to my teachers and colleagues in foreign universities who opend to me with friendly willingness their clinics and their offices. Though I was separated for away in Finnland, and lived later here in distant Kiev, I remained no strange to the German basic roots and training of my scientific knowledge, and I honestly give thanks to the school of Dorpat that they had shown me the way toward the west." - The "Handbuch" by Szymanowski is an extremly rare! - Blair O.

Large attractive watercolour view of the Rohtas Fort, Punjab, very similar to a wood engraving published in the "Illustrated London News" (1849). Rohtas Fort was in the area of active actions during the Second Anglo-Sikh War (1848-49) which resulted in the annexation of Punjab to the possessions of the East India Company. "Rohtas Fort is a historical garrison fort located near the city of Jhelum in Punjab, Pakistan. It was built by Raja Todar Mal, under the orders of the Afghan king Sher Shah Suri, to subdue the rebellious tribes of the northern Punjab region, in the 16th century. This fort is about 4 km in circumference. The Rohtas fort was built to crush the local tribes of Potohar, who rebelled against the Sur dynasty after the Mughal emperor Humayun was ousted by the former" (Wikipedia).

Work inspired by the romantic history of Portugal and the idyllic landscapes, forests and woodlands in the region of Sintra, hereby adopted by the imaginary of the English literature and legends.

        The Quadrupeds of North America

      New York: Lockwood, 1870. hardcover. very good(+). 3 volumes. Illustrated with 155 glorious hand-colored lithographic plates, protected by tissue guards. xvi, 383, [1 blank]; [iv], 334; vi, 348 pages. Royal 8vo, bound in original full brown morocco with ornate blind-stamped decorative covers and spines; marbled endpapers, all edges gilt. (Beautiful bindings are slightly rubbed; virtually spotless interiors). New York: George R. Lockwood, (no date, circa 1870). Fourth octavo edition. The folio edition containing 150 plates was published between 1845-48. A supplementary volume with only 6 plates came in 1854. These were hastily followed by the octavo in 31 parts (1849-51-54), "A miniature copy of the large edition" as the Audubons described it. The bound octavo edition has the same dates and contains 155 plates, being all those from the original folio, plus 5 of the 6 from the supplement. This edition, circa 1870, is published by Lockwood who took possession of the lithographic stones after Audubon's bancruptcy. The quality of the plates were not diminished in these later printings. "In the 1830s, Audubon began to gather material for his Viviparous Quadrupeds...meant to complete his record of animal life in North America. The contributors to the project included John Bachman, a naturalist and Lutheran minister, who wrote all of the descriptions and acted as scientific editor for the work, and Audubon's two sons, John Woodhouse and Victor. With his sons, Audubon collected and drew specimens in the Eastern woodlands, Missouri, and the Rock Mountains, as well as in coastal regions of Florida and the East coast. Although Audubon's health and eyesight began to fail, he managed to complete 77 drawings before illness kept him from his work...Together, the three men, along with Bachman, produced an unequaled record of American wildlife. Like the Birds of America, the Quadrupeds are wonderfully animated, superbly rendered, and beautifully printed." Sabin 2368; Nissen 163; McGill/Wood 208; Bennett 5; Phillips Sporting 27; Meisel II 468.

The fifty hand-coloured engravings plates are very well produced; the engravings were done by Oudet, Noel, Lebrun, and Debray, after original paintings by Maubert. These two volumes are complete in themselves.

Bicknell's Village Builder offers contemporary designs, plans, and specifications for a wide range of public and private buildings from many parts of America, documenting that style of mixed Gothic, Romanesque, and classical cornices, pedestals, spires, and gables known as "Victorian." It depicts 45 buildings, including cottages, villas, suburban houses, town houses, a farm, a jail, courthouses, banks, store fronts, churches, and schools. Large-sized details show the principal corners and panels. The designs come from architects in Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, St. Louis, and Nashville, and were built in many large and small communities. Along with the illustrations of private homes and standard public buildings, there are plans for the first completely fireproof courthouse (built of marble and cast iron) in the United States, at Macoupin County, Illinois. The supplement depicts eighteen additional buildings. Some wear to the bindings, and volume one with new endpapers, but overall a fine set.

      1870. MOON, William. Light for the Blind. A History of the Origin and Success of Moon's Institution for Embossing and Circulating the Bible and other Books in Moon's Type for the Blind, in English and Foreign Languages. Together with: The Thirty-sixth Annual Report of Moon's Society. xi, 160, 40 pp. Illustrated with 4 lithographic plates, three of them embossed. 8vo., bound in publisher's blue cloth. Brighton: William Moon, n.d. |~||~||~| A presentation copy of William Moon's 'Light for the Blind', which was first issued in 1873. It gives details of the use of his embossed type for printing in several languages, which he had been doing since the 1840s, having gone completely blind himself at the beginning of that decade. Moon was an indefatigable campaigner for reading material for the blind, producing a monthly magazine, supporting home-teaching societies and lending libraries of his books, and travelling widely; the reports of his society bound at the end of this volume include a list of nearly one hundred cities with such societies and libraries. The Brighton Society for the Blind which he founded is still in existence, promoting his type which is easier to learn later in life than the more widely-used Braille. This version contains one of Moon's reports for 1884 bound in the rear. The three embossed plates consist of two alphabets and a map of the Brisish Isles. There are no copies of this edition recorded in OCLC. Inscribed 'Mrs Robinson, with the Christian regards of the author, October 18. 1884'. Garrison & Morton 5909.

      1870. ZAHN, Wilhelm. Ornamente aller klassischen Kunst-Epochen nach den Originalen in ihren eigenthümlichen Farben dargestellt. Illustrated with 100 colour lithographic plates after Zahn. Folio, 447 x 310 mm, bound in contemporary German green morocco over marbled boards. Berlin: Dietrich Reimer, 1870. |~||~||~||~||~| Third Edition of a beautiful and important work first published in 1849 with the same number of plates, so popular as to be republished in this edition more than twenty years later. This is the most comprehensive in a series of publications by the artist and academician Wilhelm Zahn (1800-1871). This massive volume -- a monumental achievement of nineteenth-century colour printing -- contains one hundred plates based upon paintings made by the artist in situ. It includes facsimiles of decorations by Giulio Romano in the Palazzo del Te, Mantua; medieval mosaics in Sicily; antique vases; and, above all, Roman wall paintings from Pompeii and Herculaneum. Many of these works were reproduced for the first time by Zahn. His plates had a significant impact upon Neoclassicism in Germany. The author studied painting at the Academy in Kassel and in Paris with Baron Gros prior to his first trip to Italy in 1824. From the first his efforts gained the support of prominent artists such as Schinkel and Schnorr von Karolsfeld. His initial publication of Pompeian wall paintings, Neu entdeckte wandgemälde in Pompeij (Munich, 1828), was warmly praised by Goethe in Jahrbücher der Literatur (Vienna, 1830). Occasional foxing, but overall a clean copy. Thieme-Becker XXVI, 385. Allgemeine Deutsche Biographie XL, 668-670.
