        Narrative of a Residence in Koordistan, and on the Site of Ancient Nineveh; with Journal of a Voyage down the Tigris to Bagdad and an Account of a Visit to Shirauz and Persepolis Edited by his Widow.

      London: James Duncan, 1836 - 2 volumes octavo (219 × 130 mm) Near contemporary russia, tan morocco lettering- and numberiing-pieces, low bands with dotted roll, gilt, compartments attractively gilt with repeated hexafoil and stylised foliate tools, single fillet panel gilt to the boards, board edges milled in blind. Ex-San Francisco Mechanics Institute library, their perforated stamp to the title pages and to three text leaves in total, ink stamp to the top edges, ticket-pockets neatly removed from the rear pastedowns, frotn free endpaper neatly excised, text-blocks and plates a little browned and with the usual mild foxing, externally a little rubbed, corners bumped, tails of the spines with slight marks from the removal of labels, boards with a few other superficial scuffs and stains, but overall very good and presents well. Attractive bookplates of Rudolph J. Taussig, president of the MI, to the front pastedowns. Folding map frontispiece to each, 10 lithographed plates in all, 3 of them folding, one folding plan, all plates and maps are laid down on linen, all plates have tissue-guards. First edition. An important study, which "long remained valuable, as the first nineteenth-century geographical and archaeological account of the region and also as an interesting narrative of travel. It was reissued in 1984 in recognition of its continuing value" (ODNB). A linguistic prodigy, Rich began the study of oriental languages at the age of nine. When he joined the HEIC as a cadet in 1803 he was described by a family acquaintance as "a most extraordinary young man. With little or no assistance he has made himself acquainted with many languages, particularly with the languages of the East. Besides Latin, Greek, and many of the modern languages, he has made himself master of the Hebrew, Chaldee, Persian, Arabic, and is not without some knowledge of the Chinese, which he began to decipher when he was but fourteen." His language skills convinced Charles Wilkins, the librarian to the Company, to persuade the directors to appoint him to a writership in Bombay, and he was attached as secretary to the consul-general in Egypt to "improve his Arabic and Turkish." Rich's ship was burnt, and he spent the next few years travelling the Mediterranean and Near East, including intelligence gathering in the interior of Asia Minor. In 1808 Rich became company resident at Bagdad, "where he remained for six years and during this period became the first European to excavate at the site of ancient Babylon" (Howgego). Ill health forced his return to Constantinople in 1813. "On his return through Asia Minor and Mesopotamia to Baghdad, he resumed his studies and collections, made his second visit to Babylon, and in 1820, being again in bad health, travelled in Kurdistan" (ODNB), the tour which is described in the present work. He died of cholera in Shiraz in 1821. "Parts of his collections were purchased by the trustees of the British Museum, and consisted of about 900 volumes of manuscripts in Arabic, Persian, and Turkish, and a great number in Chaldee and Syriac; a large collection of coins, Greek and oriental; and gems and antiquities dug up at Babylon and Nineveh, including the first cuneiform inscriptions ever brought to Europe" Atabey 1040; Howgego, II, R11; Wilson p.189 [Attributes: First Edition]

        Memoirs of Napoleon by M. de Bourrienne, his private secretary. To which is added, an Account of the important Events of the Hundred Days, of Napoleon's Surrender to the English, and of his Residence and Death at ST. Helena. With Anecdotes and illustrative Notes from all th most authentic Sources.

      London, Richard Bentley, 1836. 8vo, 4 volumes. Contemporary English Regency dark blue calf, spines with raised bands, decorated and lettered in gilt; highly illustrated with engraved plates; only very light wear to extremities, plates with foxing, as usual, a very good and decorative set; ownership iscriptions, dated 1836 to red endpapers. Substantially enlarged edition. Bourrienne (1769-1834) was a childhood friend of Napoleon, and his private secretary from 1796 until 1802, and his Mémoires were first published in Paris in 1829, followed by a German edition in 1829-1830, an (abridged) English translation in 1830, and a Russian text in 1834-1838. Despite the sensation that their publication caused, the memoirs are not particularly trustworthy, since they were in fact the work of Charles de Villemarest, who composed them with the approval of the poverty-stricken and ill Bourrienne, using his recollections and material culled from a variety of sources, of varying reliability; Tulard quotes the statement of Méneval (who knew Bourrienne well) that the 'author' merely consented to 'couvrir de l'authorité de son nom des mémoires à la composition desquels il n'a coopéré que par des notes confuses, incomplètes, pièces que des hommes de lettres furent chargés de mettre en oeuvre' (p. 57). However, despite the numerous errors and inexactitudes that plague the work, Tulard agrees with Arthur Chuquet's conclusion: 'Peut-on croire aux mémoires de Bourrienne? Non. Mais il faut les lire et en les lisant avec précaution, on y trouvera quelquefois à prendre et à apprendre' (p. 58)

        Robert Macaire, Les

      Paris: Chez Aubert, 1836-38 - Daumier's Most Celebrated WorkIn The Scarce Publisher's Original PortfolioWith Plates Larger Than In Sadleir's CopyDAUMIER, Honoré and Charles Philipon. Les Robert Macaire [Caricaturana]. Paris: Chez Aubert, 1836-1838. First edition. Folio (13 5/8 x 10 1/2 in; 347 x 267 mm). Eighty hand-colored lithographed plates (of 100) heightened with gum arabic, loose as issued, imprinted Caricaturana and numbered 1-27, 29-56, 58-69, 70-77, 79-83. Sadleir's copy (examined by Ray) measured 13 1/4 x 6 1/4 inches. With a TLS from Marseille book dealer Henri Roi dated Oct. 28, 1935 offering this copy to Librarie Michel in Paris.The plates chemised in the publisher's original blue cartonnage portfolio with gilt rolled border and corner-pieces enclosing a gilt panel with gilt lettering. Exceptionally rare. Housed in a felt-lined half black morocco clamshell case, spine with five raised bands, lettered in gilt in compartments.Also included are several Librarie R.G. Michel catalogs from the nineteen-thirties and some relevant newspaper cuttings."Les Robert Macaire remains Daumeir's best-known work. Baudelaire chose it. for specific discussion in his essay on French caricaturists and Carteret accorded it a place in his bibliography. Its contemporary popularity was immense. As an album it was published by Aubert in an edition of 2500 copies, a far larger number than for any other series. Yet so persistent was the demand that 6000 two-volume sets of reduced copies, called Les cent-et-un Robert Macaire, were published in 1839." (Ray).Though 2,500 may have been printed few have survived. OCLC/KVK records only two copies in institutions worldwide, Sadleir's at the Morgan Library, and at Yale. Though both are complete only the Morgan copy is in the original cartonnage portfolio. ABPC reports only three complete copies at auction since 1935 and it appears that at least two were rebound; it is safe, we think, to presume that the third copy was also rebound. The 'reduced' edition of 1839 is still quite rare at auction (two copies only since 1975) but there are more copies in institutional holdings."When politics became a forbidden topic in Le Charivari, where Caricaturana first appeared, Daumier and Philipon turned to social satire. If they could not attack Louis-Philippe directly, they could at least show the kind of society that flourished under his gross and venal regime. Taking the flamboyant and florid swindler Macaire from the character that Frederick Lemaitre had created in a hack melodrama called L'Auberge des adrets, they showed him.ranging through all kinds of commercial enterprise, in the stock market, in the banks, in the courts, and in dozens of other public settings, never failing to find eager dupes.Though Daumier's designes are are superb in themselves.they would be incomplete without the unfailing wit and point of Philipon's captions" (Ray).Ray, Art of the French Illustrated Book 161.

        Über die Verschiedenheit des menschlichen Sprachbaues

      Berlin: Druckerei des königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften,, 1836. und ihren Einfluß auf die geistige Entwickelung des Menschengeschlechts. Quarto (254 x 213 mm). Modern black pebbled quarter cloth, marbled boards, green paper label to spine hand lettered. A few neat pencil annotations to contents. Light wear to extremities, corners very gently bumped, contents browned with some foxing, creasing, and dampstain, small paper repair to title page verso, trimmed in the binding process, overall a very good copy. First edition of the diplomat, stateman, and linguist's major philological testament, "the first great book in general linguistics" (Bloomfield, p. 133), published posthumously. "Humboldt attempts the classification of peoples according to language. More important than the classification itself was the corollary to it, which seemed to Humboldt to imply that the development of individual languages is affected by physiology, ethnography, history, geography, political and religious relationships, and that stages in cultural development of peoples leave strongly marked traces in their languages" (PMM). Humboldt (1767–1835) travelled extensively as he studied the Basque language and, later, the ancient courty Kawi language of Java. Much of his work was never completed or published but remained in draft form. He was also renowned for his work as an education reformer, his most notable achievements being the founding of Berlin's Humboldt University in 1811 and as the originator of the highly influential holistic academic system now known as the Humboldtian model.

        Annalen der Irren-Heilanstalt zu Siegburg. Herausgegeben von D. M. Jacobi. Erster Band. (all publ.)

      Köln, Druck und Verlag von M. DuMont-Schauberg, 1836, 8, XX, (4), 303, (1) pp., Halbledereinband d.Zt. minimal fleckig, feines Expl. Selten - Erstdruck! Carl Wigand Maximilian Jacobi (1775-1858) "gilt als Begründer der modernen Irrenheilkunde".Anhand von 23 ausführlichen Fallgeschichten versucht Jacobi eine Gliederung der möglichen Ursachen der Syndrome zu entwickeln, um zur Entwicklung einer Krankheitslehre beizutragen. Insbesondere die Zusammenhänge mit körperlichen Leiden waren für ihn bedeutsam. Er führt in diesen Annalen seinen Ansatz aus der "Sammlung für die Heilkunde der Gemüthskrankheiten" (1822 - 1830) fort, durch intensive und genaue Beobachtungen Ordnung in das Durcheinander der Erscheinungsbilder zu bringen. Am Schluß des Bandes gibt er "Summarische Nachweisungen über die während der Jahre 1825 bis 1836 Statt gefundenen Krankenaufnahmen, Genesungen, Todesfälle u.s.w.""Während die erste Lebenshälfte Jacobi's wenig Spuren einer bedeutenden Thätigkeit hinterließ - zu erwähnen ist er nur als Uebersetzer des Herodot und Thucydides, als Verfasser einiger kleiner medicinischer Aufsätze und gemeinsam mit Sim. Häberl als Herausgeber der "Jahrbücher des Sanitätswesens im Königreich Bayern", 1810 - hat er in seiner psychiatrischen Wirksamkeit geradezu Großartiges geschaffen. Als er sich der Psychiatrie zuwandte, lag das Irrenwesen Deutschlands im Argen, seine wissenschaftlichen Vertreter hatten sich in zwei Lager gespalten und bekämpften sich in ermüdendem Theorienstreite. Da trat J. auf und ging mit unbefangenem Blick und in thatkräftiger Weise an die praktische und wissenschaftliche Förderung der Irrenheilkunde. Gegenüberder damals sich mehr und mehr ausbreitenden psychischen Schule der Psychiatrie stellte er dem Standpunkte des Psychologen und Philosophen den des Naturforschers entgegen, dessen Aufgabe die Erforschung des menschlichen Organismus und der Gesetze aller diesem eigenthümlichen Lebenserscheinungen sei, also auch der psychischen Erscheinungen, allein nur insoferne sie Naturerscheinungen seien. Die Nachweisung ihres Hervorgehens, ihres Zusammenhanges und ihrer Veränderungen aus den Gesetzen des Organismus sei vor Allem zu erforschen. Alle Seelenstörungen beruhten auf körperlichen Abnormitäten, oder seien vielmehr nur Symptome körperlicher Erkrankung. J. ging jedoch noch weiter, indem er, wie dies schon der Titel seiner "Beobachtungen über die Pathologie und Therapie der mit Irresein verbundenen Krankheiten", 1830 andeutet, die Geistesstörungen nicht als selbständige Formen sondern nur als Symptome irgend einer somatischen Krankheit auffaßte und annahm, daß die mit Seelenstörung verbundenen Krankheiten bald diese bald jene Sphäre, bald dieses bald jenes einzelne Gebilde, bald diesen bald jenen Complexus von Gebilden des Gesammtorganismus ergriffen, während der Gehirnerkrankung selbst nur eine ganz untergeordnete, secundäre Rolle zukomme. In echt naturwissenschaftlicher Methode hat J. diese theoretisch aufgestellten Propositionen in der Praxis begründet. Obwol er nicht ganz auf der Höhe der ärztlichen Wissenschaft stand und nicht mit ihren Fortschritten gleichen Schritt zu halten vermochte, so daß er in späteren Jahren in den diagnostischen Behelfen und der pathologischen Anatomie manche Mängel zeigte, schuf er doch in seinen "Annalen der Irrenheilanstalt zu Siegburg", 1837 und in den "Hauptformen der Seelenstörungen in ihren Beziehungen zur Heilkunde", 1844, Werke von immer bleibendem Werthe. Flemming (Pathologie und Therapie der Psychosen, S. 17) nennt ihn in Anbetracht der Verdienste um die pathogenetische Untersuchung der Seelenstörungen den Baco der Irrenheilkunde. Das letztere Werk war ans drei Bände berechnet, leider ist nur der erste über Tobsucht erschienen. In diesem ist die ganze Symptomatologie der mit Tobsucht verbundenen Krankheitszustände, die Blutbewegung, die Respiration, die Verdauung, Ernährung etc. und schließlich die psychischen Erscheinungen mit solcher Gründlichkeit und Genauigkeit durchforscht, daß überall neue, zum Theil überraschende Resultate sich ergeben. In der Behandlung der Geistesstörungen verfolgte J. zwei Wege, die bald einzeln bald zugleich in Anwendung gezogen werden müssen: einerseits die Anwendung der zu Gebote stehenden Medicamente und diätetischen Mittel, andererseits directe Einwirkung auf die Gemüthskräfte, um durch deren Rückwirkung auf den Organismus, insofern ihre Aeußerung eine correspondirende organische Thätigkeit bedingt, die Krankheit zu heben. Diese psychische Einwirkung sei eine rein humane, rein individualisirende, unter Umständen sei aber auch Strenge nicht auszuschließen." Bandorf, ADB XIII(1881), pp. 593-596The asylum of Siegburg, the first who founded in Prussia and created by Jacobi under English influence, became the model for the German psychiatrists of the time. Jacobi, called the Esquirol of Germany, was a somatologist and proclaimed his respect for the brain by asserting that one needed no psychology to understand and treat mental diseases.Kirchhoff I, 83-94 Leibbrand-Walley, Der Wahnsinn, 496-97 Hirsch-H. III, 393 Waller 5097 Ackerknecht, Hist. Psychiatry, 62 Zilboorg, 433 & 434.

They set out from Cairo in February 1828, where Laborde had established himself after his long journey in Asia Minor and Syria (1826-7), and made their way to Petra via Suez and Mt. Sinai. Both Burckhardt and Mangles had explored Petra before Laborde but Laborde was the first to be able to make plans, views and maps of the area. An important work' (Blackmer 929).

      Berlin, G.Eichler, 1836, 4, XIV 281 pp., 4 Tafeln, feiner Pappband mit aufkaschierter orignaler blauer Broschur etwas fleckig. Selten, erste und einzige Ausgabe. Johann Friedrich Miescher-His (1811-1887) war Prof. der Physiologie und allgem. Pathologie in Bern und Basel. Die vorliegende Arbeit entstand im Jahre seiner Promotion unter Johannes Müller (1801-58), dem bedeutenden Berliner Physiologen, der ihr seine Abhandlung über die Knochenkörperchen nebst 4 Kupfertafeln beifügte.First and only Edition of this rare book.! In this book, Miescher discusses the embryology and growth of bone as well as the various inflammatory diseases that afflict the skeletal system. The work also contains Müller's "Observationes de canaliculis corpusculorum ossium atque de modo, quo terrea materia in ossibus continetur" illustrated with four very fine lithographic plates."His accurate descriptions of finer bone structure and the histology of fracture-healing in his 1836 treatises were his main contributions to medical science. He was first to distinguish and carefully describe hyaline, elastic, and fibrous cartilage. His conclusions that ossification was always preceded by cartilage, which was then directly transformed into bone by calcification, and his belief that callus formation is always from the broken ends of bone and not from the periosteum are subject to some modification today, but were logical inferences for his time. Bacterial infection was not then understood, and he thought that suppuration was caused by mechanical interference with circulation at the point of breakage. He was first to describe resorption of bone in the healing of fractures.""Among his minor contributions were observations and lectures (never published) on liver and bladder cancer, congenital malformations, small publications on a bird trematode (Monostoma bijugum), a fish tapeworm (Tetrarhynchus), and a human skin mite (Demodex). In mouse muscle he discovered the spore sacs of Sarcocystis, still called Miescher's tubes. He published little during his life, but exerted a strong influence in the resurgence of the Basel medical school and on the practice of medicine through his students. He was also a medical historian, and gave three major addresses in this field: one on Felix Plater, one on the history of the University of Basel, and one on Albrecht von Haller, a 32-page gem of biography." LOWELL E. NOLAND, JMH, 1963, pp.394-395 Miescher discovered nuclein and was also the first to suggest the existence of a genetic code.Friedrich-Miescher-His was the son of Johannes Miescher (1771-1846) who was both a farmer and a mill owner manufacturing and trading worldwide in woven linens.He was born 1811 at Walkringen, Switzerland, then attendance at Biel Gymnasium, where Agassiz studied shortly before, and later two medical years at Bern and four (1832-1836) under Johannes Mueller in Berlin, where in 1836 he published his two major medical works "De ossium genesi, structura et vita" and "De inflammation ossium eorumque anatome generali". Returning 1837 to Switzerland, at the age of only 26 he declined a position at Bern and accepted in ordinary pathology and pathological anatomy at the university a professorship in anatomy and physiology at the small, struggling medical school at Basel. Having no students at first, he spent the winter of 1838-1839 in Paris with Magendie and Nordmann, the latter arousing in him an enduring interest in parasitology. In 1843 he married Charlotte Antonie His, daughter of Eduard His (originally Ochs), manufacturer of silk ribbons, and Anna Catharina and older sister of Wilhelm His, later embryologist at Leipzig. In 1844 he accepted a professorship at the Hochschule in Bern, amid political controversies about his appointment, and served until 1850, when he returned as professor of general pathology to Basel and there spent the rest of his life. He was active in Swiss scientific societies, organized a Basel medical society for local physicians, and served as rector of the University for a time. In 1867 he obtained the 'honorary' citizenship of Basle for himself and his descendants. He was a music-lover, played the lute, and sang leading roles in local choral productions. He had a large medical practice and in 1871 gave up his professorship, but continued to give some lectures. He died of heart disease in 1887. His son was Johannes Friedrich Miescher-Rüsch (1844-1895), the discoverer of DNA.Heirs of Hippocrates No. 1772 Callisen XXX, 381 und 475 Hirsch/H. IV, 208.

        Mémoire sur une manière nouvelle de pratiquer l'opération de la pierre.

      Terminé et publié par J.L. Sanson et par L.J.Begin. - Paris, J.B. Baillière, 1836, Groß-Folio, 2 Bl., 50 pp., 10 lith.Taf., OHLnBd., Ecken etwas bestoßen, vereinzelt fleckig, insgesamt feines und großes Exemplar dieses seltenen Buches. * Posthumous rare FIRST EDITION of Guillaume Dupuytren's (1777-1835) elaborate and beautifully illustrated work describing his new methods for the removal of bladder stone with 10 lithographed plates after drawings by N.H.Jacob drawn on stone by P.Langlumé, of which 8 depict stages of the operation and 2 of the special instruments used, all life-size. In French surgery the most famous operator and ablest diagnostician of his time was the Baron Dupuytren ... who attracted to his clinic at the Hotel-Dieu pupils from all countries of the world. An eloquent teacher and man of wide culture, he held a high position in the social life of his time.. -Castiglioni, 713. A work of obvious importance in the history of "cutting for the stone", yet apparently little-known. Not in Osler, Waller, Wellcome, J.A.Benjamin. Not in Ellis, A history of bladder stone Heirs of Hippocates No.1223. Dupuytrens letztes Werk, posthum erschienen, ist mit seinen herrlichen Tafeln wohl eines der schönsten in der operativen Urologie überhaupt. Seltene erste Ausgabe dieser bedeutenden Arbeit, in der seine Methode des bilateralen Steinschnitts erstmalig veröffentlicht wird. Die von Le Dran für grosse Steine im 18.Jhdt. angegebene Spaltung der Prostata nach zwei Seiten, die Sectio bilateralis, fand hier ihre genaue Begründung und Ausbildung sowie ihre eigentliche Einführung in die Praxis. "Die von ihm begonnene Arbeit konnte Dupuytren nicht mehr vollenden und überließ deren Beendigung testamentarisch seinen Freunden und Schülern Sanson und Bégin" (Hirsch II, 348). Guillaume Dupuytren, der genialste Chirurg seiner Epoche, meisterhafter Operateur, scharfsinniger Diagnostiker, einer der ersten, der in Frankreich die Ligaturen großer Arterien ausführte und den traumatischen Aneurysmen erhöhte Aufmerksamkeit zuwandte, der 1822 die subcutane Durschschneidung des Sternocleidomastoideus vornahm, der das Enterotom zur Behandlung des künstlichen Afters und andere wesentliche Neuerungen empfahl". (Sudhoff). - siehe ausführlich Puschmann, Gesch.d. Med. III, S.292 (Helferich).
