De la Generation des Vers dans le Corps de l'Homme - Tome Second (only), Andry de Bois-Regard, Nicolas
3 Andry de Bois-Regard, Nicolas De la Generation des Vers dans le Corps de l'Homme - Tome Second (only)
Paris La Veuve Alix : Lambert & Durand 1741 Third Edition Full Leather Very Good 12mo 
Vol. 2; De la nature et des especes de cette maladie; des moyens de s'en preserver et de la guerir. Troisiemme edition, considérablement augmentée, & formant un ouvrage nouveau. Volume 2 only. Contents clean and tight in contemporary 18th century full mottled calf binding with five raised bands at spine and extensive gilt decorative stamping in compartments, leather titles label at spine with gilt lettering, marbled endpapers, all edges red. Leather beginning to split at hinge, but text still securely bound, wear at corners and spine ends. Bibliotheca Walleriana, 417; Heirs of Hippocrates, 451. Nicolas Andry de Bois-Regard (1658 – 1742) was a French physician and writer. He played a significant role in the early history of both parasitology and orthopedics. This work,considered the first text on parasitology, is an account of Andry's experiments with the microscope, building on the earlier work of van Leeuwenhoek. Unlike Leeuwenhoek, Andry's experiments led him to believe that the microorganisms he called "worms" were responsible for smallpox and other diseases. He was among the first physicians to discount the notion of spontaneous generation and put forth the notion that disease entered the body from outside sources, in some cases foods.

xii, 675 & [1, ad] pages; Contemporary half calf over patterned paper-covered boards. A worn, but complete, copy of the first edition of this extensive manual of veterinary pathology. Pencil and pen scribbling and notes on the paste-down endpapers (there are no blanks or free endpapers, either front or rear). Scattered pen marks throughout, several transparent ink smudges, a few scattered stains, marks and minor tears. The first leaf of text is wrinkled but complete, another leaf near the end is partly detached at the foot and has a corner torn away. The binding shows heavy rubbing, both to the spine and the boards with wear and loss at the corners and spine ends. The label is very nearly rubbed away. First edition; there was a second edition published in 1835. German text, printed in Fraktur. Erstausgabe. The author was a noted veterinarian.

10 Ehrmann, Jules-Amédée Dr. Étude sur l'Uranoplastie dans ses applications aux divisions congénitales de la voûte palatine
Paris J.-B. Baillière et fils 1869 Hardcover Very Good- 4to 
102, [1] pages; Contemporary red half morocco over pebbled red cloth, title lettered in gilt directly on the spine, marbled endpapers, edges decoratively marbled to match -- with the original printed front and rear wrappers bound in at the end. Minor rubbing, with a few scuffs to the spine. First edition of a treatise on uranoplasty, the surgical repair of damage or congenital defects to the human palate. The author [1835-1918] was the son of another important French surgeon and teacher of medicine. This copy has the nineteenth century engraved bookplate of the U.S. Surgeon General's Library, and an ink stamp from that institution on the title page. The Library of the Surgeon General’s Office was established in 1836 when Joseph Lovell, then Surgeon General, purchased reference books and journals for his office. In 1862, the small library was moved from the General's office to a room in the Riggs Bank building on 15th Street in Washington - (a bit of this building's facade can be seen on the reverse of the U.S. $10 bill). In 1864, the library printed its first catalog containing 2100 volumes. In 1867, the Library, along with the new Surgeon General's office, was moved to Ford's Theater, site of the tragic assassination of President Abraham Lincoln in April 1865. (The theater had been closed and remodelled in the intervening two years.) After a name change or two, this library became the core of the National Library of Medicine -- (Senator John F. Kennedy was co-sponsor of the establishing legislation, S. 3430, in 1956). This copy's bookplate has the purple-ink surplus stamp from that time: "WITHDRAWN / Nat. Lib. of Med." It does appear in the first series of the 'Index-Catalogue, Library of the Surgeon-General's Office 1880-' [Series 1/Volume 4/Page 132]. There are several OCLC numbers, as some of the European libraries have chosen to create their own OCLC accession numbers ... (the main number -- OCLC: 34746373, locates the University of Chicago/Crerar Library copy, and six additional copies in French Institutions. I can find no other copies in American institutions besides Chicago's). There is an egg-sized chemical stain mark to the upper margins of the first two blank leaves, the half title and title page, the dedication leaf, and nearly disappearing by the first leaf of the text. Although similar stains often accompany early attempts to remove signatures, library marks, etc. -- this stain appears instead to have been the result of an accidental spill.

New York G.P. Putnam & Son 1868 First Edition Hardcover Very Good+ 12mo 7" - 7½" tall 
37 pages; Original owner's name and date of June 29, 1869 in pencil on first blank after slate green endpapers. Otherwise clean and tight in original publisher's brown cloth binding with gilt lettering at front board. Minor rubbing at spine ends, otherwise Near Fine. OCLC 5857298 Dr. John Hoskins Griscom, a physician with Quaker roots, was a leader of American sanitary science in 1840s and 1850s. In this work he argues against the use of tobacco examining its numerous health and social consequences. Griscom started his medical career as a dispensery physician working with the poor, which led to his becoming a social reformer advocating tenement reforms, improved medical care, public hygiene and temperance to improve the living conditions of the lower classes. In 1845 a lecture by Griscom, was published unde the title “Sanitary Conditions of the Laboring Population of New York.” In that lecture, Griscom argued that poor health and poor sanitary conditions resulted in poor moral character and deportment. Contrary to the general assumption of the times, he suggested that the working classes in New York City were the victims and not the cause of their miserable condition. As Chairman of the Standing Committee on Public Health and Legal Medicine, Griscom argued for more numerous and better dispenseries, cleaner water supplies and better management of sewage, among other reforms. Griscom's untiring efforts ultimately led to major sanitary reforms, but they were not enacted until the 1860s. Griscom's other publications include First Lessons in Human Physiology (1846), The Memoir of John Griscom, L.L.D (1859), and Sanitary Legislation, Past and Future (1861). He also published in periodicals under the pen name "J. Gotham, Jr."

An Inquiry into the Ventilation of Cinematograph Theatres, Haigh, William E.eye
16 Haigh, William E.eye An Inquiry into the Ventilation of Cinematograph Theatres
Derby [England] County Borough of Derby (J. W. Simpson & Sons, Printers) 1929 Softcover Very Good- 8vo 
26 & [1, blank] pages; Publisher's grey wrappers, two metal staples at spine, title printed in black. The author is identified as Assistant Medical Officer, County Borough of Derby. The Derby authorities requested this study based on the growing popularity of cinema halls, having noted that the cinemas in Derby provided accommodation for over 10,250 people (in 1929!) It was a matter of concern that the nature of cinema, with its continuous programme made demands on the supply of fresh air considerably in excess of "normal" theatrical exhibition spaces, and also noted that the necessary absence of sunlight from cinea halls eliminated "one of nature's purifiers." Whether or not by request of county authorities, the author also chose to discuss "the question of possible eye-strain arising from the use of seats placed in close proximity to the projection screen." The author considered all these matters, and others besides, and lists 14 specific recommendations. This official pamphlet appears to be rare now -- none in OCLC, COPAC, not in the British Library catalogue, etc. However, OCLC does locate a short article (7 pp.) by William E. Haigh on the same subject published within volume 44 [1930] of the journal: "Public Health." This is most likely an abridged version of the highlights of this now-rare separately published pamphlet. An interesting subject. Well preserved, but with modest soiling to the front cover, and a few small spots to the rear cover, and a touch of inevitable surface rust to the portion of the two metal staples exposed along the spine.

Autograph; HARDCOVER First Edition in Dustjacket. SIGNED by the two authors / editors and inscribed to the author of the foreword - Dr. Paul D. MacLean - with thanks for the inspiration they derived from his concept of the Triune Brain. MacLean made significant contributions through his research to the fields of physiology, psychiatry, and brain research. Through his research at Yale Medical School and at the National Institute of Mental Health, MacLean was instrumental in proposing and defining the triune concept of the brain. MacLean's evolutionary triune brain theory proposed that the human brain was in reality three brains in one; the R-complex, the Limbic system and the neocortex. In 1949, MacLean joined the faculty of the Yale Medical School where he studied the brain mechanisms of emotion with Dr. John Fulton. It was during this period that MacLean began to define his theory of the triune brain which would become the foundation of his research throughout his career. In 1971 MacLean became the Chief of the Laboratory of Brain Evolution and Behavior, National Institute of Mental Health, designed for comparative neurobehavioral research on animals in semi-natural conditions. MacLean retired in 1985 with the illustrious title of Senior Research Scientist, Emeritus in the Department of Neurophysiology at NIMH.; Signed by Editors; Experience the pleasure of reading and appreciating this actual printed item.
