        Schalen (Kylix) [XXVIII]

      Berlin: Ernst Wasmuth, 1883. Colour-printed lithograph by Ernst Wasmuth. Very good condition apart from yellowing at margins where it was matted and wave-like pattern of rippling in paper on the right half of the print. 26 1/8 x 17 inches. From "Griechische Keramik", Genick's superb work on Greek ceramics. The revival of interest in Greek ceramics was led by the travellers and cognoscenti who visited Greece and southern Italy in the mid to late-18th century. The Greek vase as an art form was first brought to the attention of an appreciative wider audience with the publication of a number of well-illustrated works on the collections of these dilettantes. The most notable of this group was Sir William Hamilton (1730- 1803), whose collection catalogue was published over a number of years starting in 1766. However, it was not until a century later that art historians felt they understood the full scope and history of ancient Greek ceramics in general and the superb work produced using the red- figure technique in particular. Genick was one of the leading authorities of his day on the red-figure vases: an architect by training, he had a passionate love for and deep understanding of this great Athenian pottery. His study, brought to realization by Wasmuth's superb chromolithographs, illustrates for the first time these masterpieces of the potter's life- size art.

      Vol 173, pp.993-1033; Royal Society, 1883. * GARRISON-MORTON 829: "Gaskell's classical memoir on the muscles and nerves of the heart included a description of "Gaskell's nerves", the accelerator nerves of the heart. He showed that the motor impulses from the nerve ganglia to the sinus venosus influence the heart rhythm but do not originate cardiac movements, which are due to the rhythmic contraction of the heart muscle. This led to the artificial production of "heart-block", the name for which Gaskell based on an expression of Romanes." * Presented within the complete volume of the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, Vol 173, Part III, bound in one volume for 1883, comprising, vi, [751-]1180pp with plates numbered 51-96, large quarto, library cloth with bookplate, a neat unlinked library name stamp on general title, foot of last leaves and occasionally elsewhere, a very good copy. * A FULL LIST OF CONTENTS OF THIS VOLUME SENT ON REQUEST.
