On his return Ten Rhijne was appointed physician to the Dutch East India Company. He sailed on the ship Ternate. . After his arrival in Japan he is said to have been consulted by the Japanese emperor, who was very ill, but recovered. Ten Rhijne returned to Java, where he passed the rest of his life engaged in botanical and medical studies. He contributed to the great work Hortus Malabaricus." Bowers p. 31 :" The first Deshima doctor to describe the medicine and culture of Japan to the West was a Hollander, Willem Ten Rhyne. There had been brief notes on the unique practices of Kampô in the letters of the Jesuits, . but Ten Rhijne was the first physician to publish in Europe a detailed description of the indications for and practices of acupuncture and moxibustion. He was as well the first physician with a full university education in medicine to come to Deshima, and his studies and publications indicate hat he was dedicated to scholarship".

Ten Rhyne present in his book four pictures, two Chinese and two Japanese, which show the acu-tracts and the loci appropriate for acupuncture and for moxa cautery. He mentioned also the bronze acupuncture models, referring to Wang Wei-I.It has justly been , called ' The western world's first detailed treatise on acupunture."

Gauss published his ' Arithmetical Disquisitions' at the age of twenty-four, an astonishing achievement, as it is considered to be a book that begins a new epoch in mathematics, being a fundamental book in the modern theory of numbers" Kline p. 813 :" In this book Gauss standardized the notation; he systematized the existing theory and extended it; and he classified the problems to be studied and the known methods of attack and introduced new methods. it not only began the modern theory of numbers but determined the directions of work in the subject up to the present time". Norman No 878 :" The typesetters of this work were unable to understand Gauss's new and difficult mathematics, creating numerous elaborate mistakes which Gauss was unable to correct in proof. ( with four pages with errata). . Gauss's highly technical work was printed in a small edition, and the difficulty of understanding it was hardly alleviated by the sloppy typesetting. The few mathematicians who were able to read the book immediately hailed Gauss as their price, but the full understanding required for further development did not occur until publication in 1863 of Dirichlet's less austere exposition in his Vorlesungen über Zahlentheorie."

The book has been published in fasciscule containing the introduction first, followed by the scientific section, and then an aesthetic section was published some months later. This sequential publication had the advantage that critisisms made by reviewers of, for example, the scientific section, were answered by Duchenne in the subsequent Aesthetic section, Together, the three fascicules constituted the 'text'.

Small label mounted on front: " Leide E.J. Brill 1892". D.S.B. VIII p. 494. :" Lorentz, declared his conversion to contiguous action in electromagnetic processes. Lorentz objected , however, to two features of Hertz's electrodynamics, which prompted his first memoir in 1892 on the electron theory: ' La théorie électromagnetique de Maxwell et son applications aux corps mouvants.' He criticized Hertz's totally dragged ether on well-known optical grounds; and although he admired the clear, succinct mathematical form that Hertz and Heavisde had given to Maxwell's theory, he criticized Hertz's bare postulation of the field equations. Referring to ' one of the most beautiful ' chapters in Maxwell's Treatise, in which Maxwell applied Langrangian mechanics to elucidate electromagetism without assuming a detailed mechanism, Lorentz in 1892 continued the mechanical exploration begun by Maxwell. He remarked that ' one has always tried to return to mechanical explanations', and properly so in his opinion. After leaving down his own hypotheses concerning the stationary ether and electrons, he applied d'Alembert's principle to derive the field equations and the equations of motion of an electron in the field. Charateristically, Lorentz spelled out at the start the physical suppositions of his theory; it was a constructive effort of exemplary clarity in a science chronically subject to obscurity. Lorentz incorporated into his electron theory Fresnel's view that the ether penetrates matter. He assumed that electrons are contained in all molecules of ordinary matter. In contrast with Maxwell and Hertz, Lorentz provided a clear , simple interpretation of electric charge and current and of their relation to the electromagnetic field. Because Lorentz completely separated ether and matter, he needed only one pair of directed magnitudes - one electric and one magnetic- to define the field at a point. From his understanding of ether and electricity in 1892, Lorentz explained the interaction of light and matter in a way close to that of his optical theory of the 1870's.Printing and the mind of man no 378 A. (Dated 1893 'sic') :" In these papers Lorentz assumed the electrical nature of matter and stated that all electrical particles become shortened when in motion along the direction in which the ether drifts. In 1905 Einstein propounded a special, limited theory of relativity with the express purpose of clarifying the aberration problem, to which end he adopted Lorentz's theory. The importance of this paper is that coincidentally with J.J.Thomson Lorentz had hit upon the electron theory of matter. While Thomson explained electricity in terms of matter, Lorentz expressed matter in terms of electricity. " Not in Norman, Herals of Science, Horblitt, Sparrow.

Book Description: Paris, J. Guerin, 1738. Fine engraved frontispiece 23, ( i) pp.; Old. marbled boards (almost contemp.); lower outer corner faintly waterstained; very slightly foxed but a good copy with broad uncut margins. A statue of a flute player in the Tuilleries Gardens at Paris inspired Jacques de Vaucanson to build an automaton flute player which could play airs and move his limbs as naturally as possible. After many years of experimenting he overcame the technical difficulties and demonstrated his automaton to the excited members of the "Académie Royale" in 1738, together with a similar tambourine player and a duck which could eat and even had a kind of digestive system! He outrivaled all who were active at the time building such 'machines'. In his later years he improved many industrial processes & found new technical solutions. NBG 45 p. 1019-20. In the first part he described what the contemporary "Journal des Scavans" called "The most profound researches into physics and anatomy to explain the acoustics and playing technique of the flute." As far as I know, Vaucanson was the first person to write about the flute's acoustics, and indeed the only person in the 18th century. In the second part of his memoir describes the workings of his flute player (= from the preface of the 1979 reprint (Lasocki). See at lenght Simmen: der Mechanische Mensch.

See Souvenirs from Japan by Winkel p. 26 :" Beato continued his photographic business until 1877 when he sold out to the firm of an Austrian, Baron von Stillfried. Beato stayed in Yokohama as a general merchant until 1884 after which time he settled in Rangoon.Baron Raimund von Stillfried und Radenitz was born in Bohemia in 1839. Like Beato , he travellled extensively before arriving in Japan. He came to Japan in 1870, apparently for the second time, with the ' Imperial Austrian Expedition' Von Stillfried decided to stay and established himself as a photographer in Yokohama. His photographs of Japan, shown at the 1873 Japan exhibition in Vienna, brought him fame not only in Austria but also in Japan. He regularly changed the name of his firm, for Example Stillfried & Co, ( 1871 - 1874); The Japan Photographic Association ( 1876) , and Stillfried and Andersen (1876 - 1879) , the firm that took over Beato's stock in 1877. Von Stillfried and Andersen produced an album, Views and costumes of Japan, in the late 1870s" All custom photographs in a contemporary handcolouring. All views in black and white. We tried to identify the photographers. Some we could trace by books on the history of photography in Japan (as indicated) , others were identified by means of the Japanese old photographs database of the Nagasaki University. Presumably a lot of pictures are much older as 1878 as Stillfried take over the entire stock of Beato. We assume there are even pre 1870 photographs. A detailed description is giving below. The photographs of Nagasaki/ Desima are all quite rare as they aren't in the database nor in the important work on Deshima : "Deshima. Its pictorial heritage ".

Rare work by the Dutch historian and linguist Gerard Lauts (1787-1865) on the history and government institutions of Japan and its relations with Europe. Lauts is famous for his writings on Dutch linguistics and Dutch overseas expansion. His standard work in 7 volumes is: Geschiedenis van de vestiging, uitbreiding, bloei en verval van de magt der Nederlanders in Indië (1852-66). Ulrich Gerard Lauts (1787-1865) was Dutch historian & literator. In 1830 he became professor at the "Kon. Instituut voor het Zeewezen" in Medemblik. Most of his works deal with overseas territories and possessions. In the foreword he claims to be different to other writers on Japan, as he consulted many manuscripts and used oral communication from government officials and J. Cock Blomhoff, the former head of Deshima. Indeed, the book offers an in-depth analysis of the development of the trade of the Dutch with the Japanese, and the attempts and failures of other nations to do so. - Very rare.

Maier was also director of the Museum of the Dutch - Indies Society of Industry, hosting an important exhibition in 1853 in Batavia ['Tentoonstellingsatalogus van producten der natuur en der industrie van den Indischen Archipel' (Batavia, Lange & Co., 1853]. Maier had been in the Indies since the mid forties, working his way up in the ranks as Apothecary 1st Class and 1st laboratory assistant, up to a Major's rank and with full responsibility for the chemical laboratory in Batavia. Maier's name is no longer found in the minutes of the board meetings of the 'Natuurkundige Vereeniging' [renamed 'Koninklijke Natuurkundige Vereeniging''in 1859] from December 1855 onwards. Many of the manuscript accounts in this volume ended up in the vols. of the 'Verhandelingen', among which his account of the extraction of campherous oil in Japan and the lay out of a Japanese chemical laboratory. The information was acquired by Maier from a Japanes chemist who responded to a letter sent by Maier in June 1851. The said Japanes chemist further comments on the rather poor standard of chemistry in Japan, which is primarily based on the works of the european authors Ypey, Smallenburg, Boommes [Baumes?], Berzelius, Tromsdorf. The printed article appeared in Vol. X (7th part of the new series), 1856. It can be found in the manuscript notes on pp. 7 - 9 accompanied by 10 - 12 very nice pencil drawings of the actual process of manufacture & distillation, based on the lay out of a japanese laboratory. The opening pages of the manuscript describe 'de minerale bronnen te Oresino en Takiwo' [the mineral spas at Oresino & Takiwo']. Another article on Japan may be found on pp. 141 - 142, 220 & 221 on the 'scheikundig onderzoek van Japan'sche Muntsoorten' [chemical reseach into Japanese species of coins]. In the blank margins we find 8 small pencil drawings illustrating [gold] coins called 'boontje', halfboontje' and 'kwartboontje'. On pp. 221 a further 4 illustrations of golden coins & copper coins. Maier's research often focused on chemical analysis of mineral waters, coal, iron ore, tin, obsidian, copper, gold and silver for coins, vanilla plants, chinese medicine, etc. The manuscrip.

A dissected map issued by Covens and Mortier made into a jigsaw puzzle. ( 32 pieces) Mounted on 2 mm. oak with French shell marbled paper on verso. In a contemporary French shell marbled box, complete. In very fine condition with a small label on the top of the box with in handwriting "Asia" The map has been published in the following atlas by Covens and Mortier." Nouvel Atlas très-exact et fort commode pour toutes sortes de personnes.Amsterdam ca. 1750 (Koeman : Covens and Mortier no. 13) Dutch 18th century jigsaw puzzles are in fact a kind of scientific instruments and invented to facilitate teaching geography. They were all published by Covens and Mortier in Amsterdam and all are maps. Our copy is one of the earliest jigsaw puzzles published in the Netherlands as only the borders of the jigsaw is interlocking and not the center parts. So the countries are dissected separately within their regional borders. Not in the Opie collection, see p.152 (on the invention of the jigsaw by John Spilsbury ) :" By mounting his maps on thin mahogany board, and cutting them into pieces roud the borders of the kingdoms or counties, he invented , in the early 1760s, dissected maps, to facilitate the teaching of geography" Our map is pre 1760 ( ca.1750 Cartographic dept. Univ. Library of Amsterdam), so it is possible that the jigsaw we offer is one of the first jigsaw's made in the world. See at length :" Bekkering. Stukje voor Stukje. Geschiedenis van de legpuzzel in Nederland. " Bekkering. Landkaarten in stukjes om kinderen al speelende de aardrijkskunde te leeren." Caert-Thresoor 203 no 2. 47 ef. Bekkering traced only 10 Dutch 18th century jigsaws in Dutch musea or private collections. All 10 aren't in a marbled box, but in an oaken chest. There is only one other copy know of this Asia jigsaw ( An incomplete copy in the Bekkering collection. See the picture in Geert Bekkering "Spass und Geduld Zur Geschichte des Puzzlespiels in Deutschland p. 9) In fact our jigsaw belongs to the earliest jigsaws known in the world. There is no need to argue that this early jigsaw puzzle - complete and with the box and all the pieces - is extremely rare, especially in this almost mint condition. This item is not only of interest for collectors of paper toys etc., but also for carthographic departments of musea, university libraries and private map collectors. This is the only complete copy known of what is perhaps the first jigsaw puzzle of Asia. Bookseller Inventory # 3572

An impressive and rare collection of this Hungarian Psychiatrist at work with electricity to cure people. Early work by Gonda at the beginnings at his thirties. " It is possible that the first American application of ECT was conducted by Chicago psychiatrist Victor Gonda in 1938. Gonda, one of the American psychiatrist of Metrazol , had trained in Budapest. In the military hospital Rószahegy he had helped develloping techniques of treating combat-fatigue patients with mild dosis of peripheral electricty. In 1925, Gonda emigrated to Chicago. Where he had a staff way appointment at the Parkway Sanitorium and also worked as an attending physician at the Cook County Hospitaland as a Professor at Loyola University. His son recalls his procuring an ECT device from the Genovean firm of Zurli and De Regibus in midsummer 1939. The son also recollect that Gonda undertook a few animal trials . Experimented on his own leg ( Which jerked so convulsely that he injured it.) and then conformed the procedure on the first patient in the late January 1940 at the sanitarium. Although Gonda was a scientific figure he apparantly contributed to Chicago's reputation of administring enourmous amounts of ECT's in outpatient "shock shop's " .Shorter and Healy. ( Shock therapy : a history of electroconsulsive treatment in mental illness.) "A third thread is provided by Pulver 1961. He writes that the first treatment inthe U.S.A. was administered in Chicago by Victor E. Gonda at the Parkway Sanitariurn just prior to January 20, 1940. using a machine built in Genoa, Italy.Gonda's son. Thomas A. Gonda, wrote to Pulver 1961: "In midsummer. 1939,Dad was in communication with Ccrletti. and in November of that year he received delivery of an Italian machine. .For the first 2 months Dad did notbegin treatments, while in his cautious and methodological manner he tested outthe apparatus on experimental animals, producing convulsions. I recall vividly also, just before Christmas of 1939. his placing the electrodes on his own thigh,experiencing a violent contraction of his muscles and injuring his leg which hit the table. Subsequently, he was concerned about the possible pain patients might experience were they not immediately rendered unconscious. This delayed giving of the first treatment until late January of 1940 at the Parkway Sanitarium in Chicago."In Victor Gonda's first published paper on electroshock therapy he notes:"Since March 1940, 1 have treated 40 patients with a total of 612 electricallyinduced convulsions" Gonda, 1941. While Gonda never claimed priority, and because Gonda's first ECT publication refers to March, 1940, Renato 1. Almansiclaims priority in the USA for the first ECT that Dr. David J. Impastato and headministered on February 6. 1940 Personal Communication, December 6, 1986and December 26, 1986. "( The Origins of ElectroconvulsiveTherapy ECTNorman S. Endler,1988).
