        Études photographiques sur le système nerveux de l'homme et de quelques animaux supérieurs d'après les coupes de tissu nerveux congelé. 2e édition, revue et corrigée. Atlas und Text in 2 Bänden

      Paris, Adrien Delahaye 1870.. [Atlas]: Folio (32 x 47 cm). Halbleinenmappe mit aufgezogenem Titel der Org.-Broschur und Schließbändern, Rücken erneuert, 1 Bl. (Titel), 16 Tafeln mit 165 montierten Originalphotographien. Einband etwas verstaubt und an den Kanten berieben, die Trägerkartons der Photographien mitunter etwas braunfleckig. [Text]: Oktav, bedruckte Org.-Broschur. 64 S., unbeschnitten, mit wenigen kleinen Randläsuren. Insgesamt gut erhalten. 2. Ausgabe (Broschur d. Textheftes vermutlich irrtümlich als 3. Ausgabe bezeichnet, Titel jedoch als 2.). - Nicht bei Garrison (History of Neurology), Taureck (Bedeutung der Photographie für die medizinische Abbildung im 19. Jahrhundert) oder anderen uns zugänglichen Bibliographien des Gebietes. - Von großer Seltenheit, über den KVK ist diese zweite Ausgabe nur in der Universitätsbibliothek Leipzig nachgewiesen, die erste Ausgabe von 1868 findet sich lediglich in den Pariser Bibliotheken BNF und Bibliothèque interuniversitaire de santé (Abfrage KVK am 16. Februar 2012), sowie der Sammlung photographisch illustrierter Bücher der British Library. Seit 1975 kein Exemplar auf deutschen Auktionen nachweisbar. - Roudanovsky (1829-1888) Schüler Brocas, wirkte als Arzt in Nijni Taguil, im russischen Gouvernement Perm im Ural. Sein mit Originalmikrophotographien illustriertes Atlaswerk, dem großen hysiologen Vlaude Bernard gewidmet, ist eine der frühesten Anwendungen der Photographie auf histologischem Gebiet. Roudanovsky publizierte 1876 noch ein weiteres Werk zu diesem Thema (De la structure des racines des nerfs spinaux et du tissu nerveux dans les organes centraux de l'homme et de quelques animaux supérieurs), das vermutlich von seiner Frau Olga aus dem Russischen ins Französische übersetzt wurde (das ist verm. auch der Fall bei vorliegendem Werk).

Inspired by Captain Brooke's travels in Scandinavia he came to Sweden in 1823, filled with a love of adventure and a passion for hunting. He wrote extensively about hunting and fishing and his books on these subjects were generally well received. "Peasant life in Sweden", which was translated into Swedish in 1871, was however criticized for giving an antiquated picture of Lloyd's new homeland. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        Carte Générale de l'Océan Pacifique dressée par Mr. C.A. Vincendon-Dumoulin

      Paris: Dépôt Général de la Marine, 1870. Engraved map measuring 715 x 1040 mm. (sheet size); some edge-wear and toning, but a good copy nonetheless. Is Lake Torrens an Inland Sea? Impressive chart of the Pacific, including Australia and the Americas. It was first published in 1851; this is an example of the later issue with corrections dated 1870.The chart was compiled by French naval hydrographer Clement Adrien Vincendon-Dumoulin who served aboard two important expeditions to the South Pacific and beyond. Vincendon-Dumoulin accompanied the scientific voyage of 1822-1825 under Duperrey; he also served aboard the second Dumont d'Urville expedition 1837-1840 which sailed well into Antarctic waters. French scientific voyaging of this era aimed to resolve remaining geographical anomalies, and produce accurate hydrographical charting of remote Pacific waters.Much of the detail of inland Australia is clearly informed by English language exploration accounts (evidenced by good detail of riverine geography). One curious anomaly is the size and extent of Lake Torrens in South Australia, here misrepresented as a horseshoe shaped lake on the scale of an inland sea.The map is from the collection of the Freycinet family, and has been marked with route of a voyage to Australia and the Americas by a later descendent.

        The History of Robinson Crusoe

      New York: McLoughlin Bros., circa, 1870. Large octavo, six large handcoloured woodcuts; a very good copy in the original green illustrated wrappers. One of the most famous of all English books, Robinson Crusoe was a seminal work in the imaginary voyage tradition: the story of Crusoe's hard-fought survival and eventual moral redemption was responsible for an entire literary genre, the 'Robinsonade'. Defoe's story was so popular that it was prolifically re-issued and translated, and sired a seemingly endless series of imitations. This American chapbook version of the story is beautifully illustrated with six large handcoloured woodcuts.

        Fairyland, In

      1870. first edition. Heaven Elf UsA Very Fine First Edition In Fairyland[DOYLE, Richard, illustrator]. ALLINGHAM, William. In Fairyland. Pictures from the Elf-World. London: Longmans, Green, Reader, & Dyer, 1870. First edition, published Christmas 1869 yet post-dated 1870. Folio (14 7/8 x 10 5/8 in; 378 x 271 mm). [8], 31, [1] pp, printed on rectos only. Frontispiece and fifteen wood-engraved plates printed in color by Edmund Evans, many plates with three-four vignette images each. Miscellaneous black and white line illustrations, including title-page.Original green morocco-grained cloth pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt. Elaborately gilt-decorated spine. All edges gilt. Original pale yellow-coated end-papers with the small yellow rectangular binders ticket of Edmonds & Remnants, London on rear paste-down. Occasional minor spotting, affecting preliminary leaves and verso of frontispiece only. The mildest of rubbing to spine and corner extremities, the gilt on the front cover and spine bright and fresh. Contemporary ink inscription on half-title "Edith R. Potter / a birthday present from / Uncle John & Aunt Eliza Leech / October 1870." This book nearly always suffers from the gut-of-percha binding coming loose and causing the pages to become frayed at the edges. This copy has been expertly and completely invisibly re-cased (before any edge wear). A bright and fine copy of this wonderful book, hardly ever seen in this condition.Illustrator "Richard ["Dickie"] Doyle (1824-1883) was nineteen when he joined the staff of Punch, for which he designed the first cover" (Osborne, vol. I, p. 442); he also designed the Punch masthead, used for over a century afterward. His father, John Doyle, was the noted Irish political caricaturist who signed his work, "H.B." Doyle collaborated with John Leech, W.C. Stanfield and other artists to co-illustrate three of Charles Dickens' Christmas books, The Chimes (1844), The Cricket on the Hearth (1845) and The Battle of Life (1846). After the success of In Fairyland he went on to illustrate a string of fantasy-themed books."William Allingham (1824-1889) was an Irish poet who became a friend of Leigh Hunt and was introduced to the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood by Coventry Patmore" (Osborne, vol. I, p. 50)."It is generally felt that Richard Doyle rose to his greatest heights with the graceful clusters of humanized and sentimentalized but endearing little elves he created for In Fairyland. In the case of this book the pictures preceded the text, a situation not uncommon in the history of illustrated children's books. The Irish poet William Allingham wrote verses to accompany Doyle's colorful fantasies. Edmund Evans produced the colored engravings; they are among the very finest examples of his work. Doyle's illustrations for In Fairyland were used again, in 1884, to illustrate Princess Nobody, an original fairy tale for children by Andrew Lang. This is the first edition of In Fairyland" (Morgan Library, Early Children's Books)."Doyle's most sought-after book is the folio, In Fairyland - A Series of Pictures from the Elf-World, 1870 (second edition 1875), a masterpiece of book illustration and an outstanding example of the colour printing of the equally well-known Edmund Evans (1826-1905), a craftsman whose work for Walter Crane, Randolph Caldecott, Kate Greenaway, and other[s]... put him at the top of his profession. In Fairyland... is one of the finest books ever produced for children, and from the collector's point of view a most desirable item to add to any library of juvenile works, especially copies in the original green, morocco-grained, full-cloth bindings, pictorially blocked in gold on the front cover..."

        [ Photographically Illustrated Books ] Electro-Physiognomy. A Condensed Resume from the Work of M. Duchenne (de Boulogne). IN Journal of Psychological Medicine and Diseases of the Nervous System

      [ New York ]: [ D. Appleton & Company ], 1870. Cloth. Very Good. 224 pages + 3 leaves plates + [8], [225]-448 pages. 8vo. Red cloth binding with simple spine labeling "Psychological Medicine 4". Ex-library Library of Congress, properly withdrawn with surplus stamp on front flyleaf. Contains the first 2 (of 4) issues of the Journal of Psychological Medicine and Diseases of the Nervous System, Volume IV (January and April). Discrete LC perforated stamp on first page of the first issue. Otherwise unmarked internally. Cloth. The Journal of Psychological Medicine and Diseases of the Nervous System is an interesting publication. This volume is particularly interesting because of a review illustrated with albumen photographs. Duchenne in 1862 wrote "Mecanisme de la physionomie humaine, ou analyse electro-physiologique de l'expression des passions applicable a la pratique des arts plastiques." where he "studied the mechanism of facial expression during emotion; his atlas of photographs is a most important contribution to medical photography. Darwin reproduced a number of his photographs in The Expression of the Emotions." (Garrison/Morton 5/4973). Duchenne's work, which documented the electrical stimulation of facial muscles and recorded the results as "emotions", "marks the beginning of photography applied to anatomy and neurology" and is an important book both in medicine and in photographically illustrated books. The Truthful Lens #49. The Photobook: A History Volume I: p50.What we offer here is a substantial English language review of Duchenne's work. The review, by M.L. Edgeworth, is found on pages 76-87 of the January issue. The review not only gives a detailed discussion of Duchenne's work, but it also reproduces images from Duchenne's work in slightly different form. 3 plates, all albumen photographs, are offered to help explain Duchenne's book - the first a full page image, and the following 2 plates each with 24 small images showing the various electrical stimulations to the face and it's results "emotionally". The last 2 plates are really mashups of the plates in Duchenne's original work. Edgeworth limits his explanations to lengthy quotes and his own interpretations of the process by which the "artist" Duchenne elicits various emotional results captured in these early images, leaving the perhaps more philosophical/ethical commentary to others. Some of his detailed review references the included images while some strangely refer to other plates from Duchenne not reproduced here (perhaps reproduction costs or rights became an issue especially since this article carried nearly 1/3 of the plates in the original publication). A great example of the application of photography used to book reviews, something not often done in this period.Other interesting articles in the 2 issues include one on the "Physical Action of Magnetism [on the human body]" by John Vansant and "The Psychological Action of Opium" by Alonzo Calkins.

      Ca 1870 - An unmounted albumen photograph with number and title at the lower left "Kling poeple (sic) 171". With the blind stamp for G. R. Lambert & Co., Singapore at the lower right. This is a family group with 7 people, with some of the same individuals as those portrayed in a print at the National Gallery of Australia (Accession No: NGA 2007.2025) which is titled "92 Kling family" and which shows the same mother and father in the same setting (with striped backdrop) but with only the mother and father and two children.Lambert & Co. were commercial photographers in Singapore, 1867 - c. 1914. Founded by the German-born Gustave Richard Lambert (b.1846), the firm was by the end of the 19th century the largest and most successful studio in South-East Asia, maintaining branches at various times in Kuala Lumpur, Bangkok, and Sumatra. It was appointed photographer to the king of Siam in 1880 and was also extensively patronized by the British colonial authorities to record political occasions and official visits. Although Lambert's personal presence in Singapore was sporadic, under the management of Alexander Koch the studio assembled the most extensive photographic documentation of the area, with a catalogue of views covering almost the entire Malay archipelago. - The Oxford Companion to the Photograph. 7 1/2 x 10".

He was the only son of Nawab Afzal-ud-Daula. When his father died he was two years and seven months old, and thus became the sixth (VI) Nizam of the Asif Jahi dynasty in 1869, aged only three.

        Sleighing in New York

      Emil Seitz, New York 1870 - Lithograph printed in colors, after D. Benecke. Designed by Th. Benecke. Printed by Nagel & Lewis. A merry panorama of chaos on lower Broadway, 1855 Looking east across Broadway at Barnum's Museum just up from St. Paul's Church, and focused on a couple, thought to be Jenny Lind and her American impresario, P. T. Barnum, in a sleigh in front of Barnum's Museum. Jenny Lind toured America in the early 1850's. The "Swedish Nightingale" was immensely successful, one of the first "stars". There is, as ever, a huge traffic jam, this one involving one-horse, two-horse and six-horse sleighs, in a variety of styles and livery decorations. The large sleigh with six white horses is a public omnibus. On the front is a portrait of "Ol' Rough and Ready", the recently deceased President, Zachary Taylor, who died quite suddenly and unexpectedly in 1850. The policeman with a horse whip in the background wears the distinctive "cap and star" uniform, the star made of copper. The whole scene vibrates with excitement, confusion, merriment and stress. Note the over the shoulder trombone in the band in the balcony over the entrance to the Museum. "This imaginative and colorful print, showing Barnum's Museum, is?justly celebrated." (Peters) NY Public Library, The Eno Collection of New York City Views , number 335; Stokes, Iconography of Manhattan Island , page 898; Peters, America on Stone , page 93, illustrated plate 12.

Erste deutsche Ausgabe des ersten umfangreichen amerkianischebn Lehrbuches der Orthopädie! - "In den Jahren 1863 und 1864 veröffentlichte der Verfasser eine Reihe von Arbeiten über orthopädische Chirurgie in dem Philadelphia and Surgical Reporter, die später gesammelt in unverändertem Abdruck unter dem Titel "Lectures on Orthopaedic Surgery" herausgegeben wurde. Die günstige Beurtheilung in der medizinischen Presse und der schnelle Absatz der ersten Auflage veranlassten den Autor im Jahre 1868 eine zweite verbesserte und vermehrte Auflage mit 84 Illustrationen zu veranstalten. Diese ist es, welche der deutschen Uebersetzung zu Grunde gelegen hat." B.L. Scharlau, Vorrede - "This, after the small volume of Buckminister Brown, was the first true orthopaedic textbook in US, ." David Le Vay, The History of Orthopaedics, pp.385-388 - - The second of Stromeyer's pupils to arrive in America was Louis Bauer (184-1898). - Carl August Ludwig Bauer "physician, was born in Stettin, the provincial capital of Pomerania, in July, 1814. He began the study of medicine in 1833, and attended successively the universities of Germany at Greifswald, Brelsau and Berlin. In 1838 he passed the state examination as physician, surgeon, obstetrician and in forensic medicine, and entered private practice on the island of Ruegen in the Baltic Sea. He soon received an appointment from the German government as country (Kreiss) medical officer in East Prussia; was subsequently, by his own request, transferred to Pomerania with official residence at Stolpe, holding this until the year 1849. As a democrat, he took an active interest in the revolution of the time, became a leader in his party, and was elected a member of the lower branch of the Prussion legislature. On the dissolution of parliament, prosecution was employed against all who had opposed the crown, among whom he was numbered. Suspension from office, imprisonment upon the charge of high treason, crime against his majesty, the king, and similar supposititious charges followed. The high court failed to find a true bill; he was temporarily discharged after imprisonment of ten weeks- Liberty lasted but a few days, when, mutterings reaching him through a confidential friend that the district court would the next day take his case under consideration upon new charges of a similar character, he left Germany and embarked for England. While in Loudon he became a member of the Loudon medical society, and by examination a member of the Royal college of surgeons of England. In 1853 he arrived in New York, settled in Brooklyn, and soon secured a successful practice. He co-operated in the establishment of the Long Island college hospital, and was appointed professor of anatomy and surgeon to the new institution. In 1862 he was elected health officer of the city of Brooklyn, and held that position for nearly two years. In 1866 he was sent to Europe to take charge of a patient. During his four months' sojourn he studied the character and management of medical institutions. In 1869 he left Brooklyn and went to St. Louis, where he founded the St. Louis college of physicians and surgeons, was its dean for twelve consecutive years, and the professor of the principles and practice of surgery, a position which he has long held. Dr. Bauer devotes special attention to the culture of orthopedic surgery, of which specially he was undoubtedly the father in the United States. He has extended the domain to joint diseases, and rendered his knowledge and experience on the subject the common property of the profession by writing a treatise which rendered several editions necessary, and which has been translated into the German, Swedish, and Italian languages.
