Two volumes [4 parts]. 8vo. [iv], x, 292, 234; [viii], 260, 222 pp. Original gilt-stamped half black calf, marbled boards. Very good. First collected edition, with two title-pages and each of four sections having its own separate pagination. Some copies of vol. II have imprint dated 1810. "In 1809 and 1811 new editions were published in two volumes. Those who have been trained in anatomy, physiology and pathology in the schools of the present day, cannot easily account for the unbounded influence and interest awakened by the work published under the above modest title. But the writer of this article, who is not yet exactly numbered with the ancients, well remembers when surgeons appeared never to have conceived the idea that local affections were connected pathologically with the constitution as a whole.... we should, with one accord, pronounce Abernethy the most auxiliary to the cure of chronic diseases that has ever appeared. The impulse of his modest but convincing statements, was truly immeasurable. It pervaded the whole faculty, medical and surgical. The reformation in practice was professional, both in its origin and results; and no man in our ranks should, even now, undertake the cure of chronic diseases without a faithful study of this great reformer in his own words." – The New England Journal of Medicine, Volume 32; Volume 32, pp. 257-8. "John Hunter's successor at St. Bartholomew's Hospital was John Abernethy, his devoted pupil and disciple. Continuing Hunter's work on ligation, Abernethy became the first to tie successfully the external iliac artery for aneurism, and in 1798 he ligated the common carotid. Although he was a generous man and quite popular as a teacher, he deliberately assumed a brusque manner with his patients, assuming it would inspire their confidence." – Heirs of Hippocrates. "First ligation of the external iliac artery for aneurysm. Abernethy performed the operation in 1796." [G&M 2928]. "A pupil of John Hunter, Abernethy became a leading surgeon in London. He was most industrious, and it is said that not even on his wedding day did he fail to give his usual daily lecture at St. Bartholomew's hospital. His book was, in the view of D'Arcy Power, epoch-making; [in the first edition on pp. 234-92 is recorded the first successful ligation of the external iliac artery for aneurysm, an operation carried out by Abernethy in 1796." – [G&M 5584].

12 AMAUDRIC, J. Fortune. Essai sur L'Humorisme et le Solidisme... a la faculte de medicine de Montpellier, le 31 Juillet 1811.
Montpellier: Jean Martel, 1811. 1811 
24.5 cm. 41 pp. Printed self-wraps; some foxing to title page, soiled. Good. RARE. Dissertation. "Fifty years ago [c.1800-1810], the professional mind seemed to be settled down into exclusive and absolute solidism. It had reached this position after a contest of centuries, and was in none too good humor with an adversary that had held out so long, and whose fascinations had been so hard to withstand. We not only disowned humoralism, but scouted and ridiculed it. The philosophical determinations of Bichat and Cullen, had found lively and effective co-operators in the pasquinades of Moliere and Peter Pindar." Joshua B. Fint, "A Discourse," Semi-Monthly Medical news, Louisville, Kentucky, June 1, 1859, p. 329. ALSO: "In re-evaluating the concept of the fibre," Ishizuka "seeks to redress the neuro-centric view of eighteenth-century medicine, and attempts to locate the fibre body amidst the fundamental shift from humoralism to solidism." " In short, fibre and ‘fibre theory’ (ie. the theoretical articulation of fibres) occupied a critical place in eighteenth-century medicine, particularly in theoretical medical discourse. Eighteenth-century medical discourse from c. 1700 to c. 1740 is pervaded with fibre-related terms and descriptions such as ‘membranes’, ‘web’, ‘stamina’, ‘weaving’, ‘vibrating’, ‘folding’, ‘tone’ and ‘tension’, rather than ‘nerves’ and the ‘nervous system’. These and similar fibre-related words constitute the terminology of the ‘Fibre Body’. The prevalence of this vocabulary bears witness to a concerted effort of medical theorists to transform the older medical theory of the ‘humoral’ and fluid body into a theory of solidism... The radical shift from humoralism to solidism, hitherto relatively neglected by medico-cultural historians, is more indispensable for the understanding of the emergence of the modern body than one might assume. The fibre body reigns amidst this shift." - H. Ishizuka, 'Fibre Body': The Concept of Fibre in Eighteenth-century, ?2012

New York: E. P. Dutton, 1908. 1908 
Two volumes. 8vo. xiii, [1], 335, [1]; ix, [1], 397pp. Frontispieces, profusely illustrated, 2 color folding maps, index. Original black gilt-stamped cloth, t.e.g.; spine head a bit frayed, nick on side (joint), some freckling. Ex-library copy (paper spine label, rear library pockets): bookplates and embossed ownership stamp (the latter on titles) of the Cranbrook Institute of Science – Gustavus D. Pope Sportsman's Library. Very good set. First American edition, also published in a British edition in 1908 and otherwise preceded by the Nordic first edition of 1907, Nordvestpassagen; beretning om Gjøa-expeditionen, 1903-1907, Kristiania [now Oslo]. This is an account of one of the most important sea-going expeditions to finally navigate and prove any possibility of a northwest passage by sea. The Amundsen party travelled via Baffin Bay, Parry Channel, and through Peel Strait and John Ross Strait, spending two winters on King William Island. "Attempts to find the Northwest Passage—a water route from Europe to Asia through the Arctic archipelago north of the Canadian mainland—began as far back as the late-15th century. After numerous failures, many involving disaster and great loss of life, the Northwest Passage finally was successfully navigated in 1903–6 by the Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen (1872–1928). Amundsen and a small crew of six left Christiania (present-day Oslo, Norway) in the converted 47-ton fishing boat Gjöa on June 16, 1903. They proceeded to the west coast of Greenland, across Baffin Bay, and on to King William Island, where they spent nearly two years, conducting scientific experiments and carrying out a sledge expedition of almost 1,300 kilometers to uncharted regions to the north. The Gjöa finally left King William Island on August 13, 1905 and headed west, before stopping for the winter at King Point on the northern coast of the Yukon Territory, in northwest Canada. After their third winter in the Arctic, Amundsen and his crew resumed their journey on July 2, 1906. They arrived in Nome, Alaska, on August 31, having completed the first successful navigation of the Northwest Passage. This book, first published in Norwegian in 1907, is Amundsen's account of the voyage. It includes much detailed information about the Eskimo tribes that Amundsen came to know and from whom he learned many Arctic survival skills. Presented here is an English-language edition of the book published in 1908. Amundsen later became, on December 4, 1911, the first man to reach the South Pole." – World Digital Library. See: Roald Amundsen and the Exploration of the Northwest Passage. Oslo, Norway: Fram Museum. 2008. pp. 63, 65. [... "was a great achievement for Norway"]. First Edition.

FIRST PRINTED HYPOTHESIS ON THE WAVE THEORY OF LIGHT. First edition of this curious treatise on optics, sound, vision, refraction, color, and 'lumination,' incorporating Ignace Gaston Pardies' previously unpublished treatise on optics and based largely on Aristotelian principles. Divided into three parts: Contains the pt. I: On the properties of light and its movement; pt. II: Comments on vision, including correcting sight with glasses; pt. III: devoted to assisting and improving sight, magnifying glasses, theory of the telescope (p.[vi], 190, 281) and frequently refers to the microscope (pp. 99, 106-7, 180, 186-7, 190-1, 193, 198, 200, 237, 244-8, 251-2, 254, 256-7, 265-6, 280-2, 344-366, etc.). Olivier Darrigol gives an assessment of the text: It is a work in defense of Aristotle's views against neo-atomism as describe by Gassendi and Maignan. Instead their study of sound and light is based on Aristotelian principles. "Ango/Pardies introduced the notion of undulation by means of the picture of a vibrating body that induced alternating compressions and dilations of the contiguous layer of air, followed by similar periodic deformation of the next layer…" (p. 61). They also "introduced some of the main properties of waves by means of the water-wave illustration." In "the case of sound, which they regarded as paradigmatic for other undulations… They indeed pioneered the concept of sound as a compression wave." (pp. 61-2; see Ango p. 26). They rejected the sine law by Maignan [p.88] relating to refraction of undulations. With light Ango/Pardies take the position of periodic vibrating, 'every luminous body breathes' – also using the beating of a heart as an example. Dealing also with color theory they site Aristotle's, De sensu. They support a curious system of corresponding ratios, comparing color to musical consonance, or a "frequency of the undulations." (pp. 63-4). "The first author who explicitly and systematically constructed optics on the basis of analogy with sound and water waves was the Jesuit father Ignace Gaston Pardies, in a now lost manuscript written around 1670 and entitled "On the motion of undulations." His treatise on statics, published in 1673, contains a short description of the intent of his work: first to describe the undulation of water, "a matter of game and entertainment for children, which can be the subject of a very deep meditation for the most skilled philosophers"; and then to treat sound by analogy with these undulations, and light by analogy with sound: - In a conjecture on the propagation of light, we examine whether one could not also suppose that the vehicle of light is some similar motion in a subtler air; and we show indeed that under this hypothesis one would explain in a very natural manner all the properties of light and colors, which are otherwise very difficult to explain; and I hope my reader will enjoy the manner in which the measure of refraction is demonstrated.' – A younger Jesuit, Pierre Ango, inherited Pardies' manuscript and exploited it in the first book of the optical treatise he published in 1682 in Paris. In an introductory letter to this treatise, Ango emphasized the analogy with sound and Pardies' importance in this respect: 'You will see that [this first book] contains every beautiful and solid thing that can be said on the propagation and properties of light, on colors, and even on sounds, about which I write at first in order to ease the conception of what I subsequently say on light. – There I have used some of the thoughts of the later Father Pardies which you believe to be still novel and which are in a better shape than this Father left them in the memoirs which you know I long had in my hands.'" – Olivier Darrigol, A History of Optics from Greek Antiquity to the Nineteenth Century, Oxford University Press, 2012, p. 60. Ignace-Gaston Pardies was a French scientist born in Pau, the son of an advisor at the local assembly. He was a member of the Society of Jesuits, teaching at the Lycée Louis-le-Grand in Paris. He died at 37 years of fever contracted ministering to the prisoners of Bicêtre Hospital, near Paris. Father Ango was a professor of mathematics and physics at the College of La Flèche, Rouen.
