About this Item: [Ischl], 1688., 1688. German manuscript on paper (watermark: crowned double-headed eagle, counter-sign CH), probably by two or three different hands. 196 unnumbered ff. with 197 written pages. Contemporary half vellum with remains of ties, 4to (158 × 200 mm). Loosely inserted between the leaves are 9 slips of paper in various sizes, some folded and written on several sides, containing additional recipes (including the remainder of a letter, addressed to the book's owner in Ischl), as well as a strip of cotton cloth from the 17th or early 18th century. An extensive, privately compiled medical manuscript, owned and in all likelihood largely written by a patrician lady from Ischl in the Austrian Salzkammergut region. The recipes contained appear to some extent based on popular tradition, but more frequently on Paracelsian sources and generally on the Paracelsian-inflected pharmacology and chemical medicine of the Renaissance. A relevant example is provided by the very first recipe, "daß gerechte Froschlaichpflaster" - a frogspawn bandage on a white lead basis, as it was frequently applied by surgeons as early as the 16th century to advance wound healing: "Froschlaich 2 lb., Baumöll 1½ Virting, Wein Essig 3 loth. Lass es mit ein andter sieden bis die Feichtigkeith verraucht und nur daß Öll verbleibe, dan du mues es hernach durch ein [Sieb] durchseihen, daß die schwartzen Eier in und ander Unflath darvon weg khumbt, hernach due darein Bleyweis 8 loth, Bleyzucker 2 loth, lass es wider ein wenig sieden und du must alleweil riechen, damit du es nicht verbrenest, so dan duehe darein Weißwax 1½ Vierting, lass es wider ein wenig sieden, und hernach von Feurer gethan thue darin Weisses Vitriol 1 loth, Rohen Alaun ½ loth, Ca[mp]her 2 Quintl, riche so lang bis es kalt wirdt, hernach mach Zapfen darauß, due es reecht mit Öll wo gaffer darein ist und zächs recht endereinander, so dan ist es bereith." This is followed by "daß gerechte Fontonell Pflaster" (a bandage for the fontanelles) and "Jungfrau Milch" (virgin's milk), then - after several blank leaves - a series of recipes concerning the head, including "das edle Khopff Bulffer" ("the noble cephalic powder"), "fier die Pluet Schuß im Khopf" ("for when blood rushes to one's head"), "fyer das Haubt Wehe der Khinter" ("for children's headaches"), "Wann ein Personn verwüret ist in Haubt" ("when a person is confused in his head"), "fuer den Wuremb im Khopf" ("for the worm in the head"), "füer den großen Khopf Wehe" ("for the severe headache"), etc. Among the further recipes are "ein khöstliches Wuntt Trankh" ("a delicious wound potion"), "Khrafft Wasser vor den Schlag" ("strong water for a stroke"), "Etles Trisanet Pulver, vor den Schlag, vor Schwacheit des Herzen, Bletigkeit des Mang, der Löber" ("noble trisanet powder for strokes, weakness of the heart, and ailments of the stomach and the liver"), "Inwendig grosse Hizen" ("great inner heat"), etc. Other recipes concern the internal organs and respiratory tract ("Räynigung des Mangs", "Geschwollen Mangen", "Wer hart umb Prust", "Vor Huesten", "Vör Lung- und Lebersucht, Huesten, auch Stäckhen auf der Prust"), gynecology and obstetrics ("Wann ein Frau nit gebehren khan", "Wann das Khünntt nit kan ledig werten", "Von Mangel der monatlichen Zeit"), as well as dentistry ("Vor Zahn Wehe", "Zahn ohne Schmerzen herauszunemben", "Vor Munntfeille"); also, recipes for emetics ("Vor Erbrechen daß der Mangen nichts behalte") and for various ointments ("zu den Prysten", "vor Reissen und Grimmen"), tapeworms ("vor Wuremb im Leib"), enemas ("Von Clystier- und Purgiern"), and "how to push the intestines back into the body when the bowels have fallen out" ("so einen der Leib Tarmb ausgeht, den Layb Darmb hinein zu bringen"). Some recipes reveal the scientific limits of their age (one captioned "vor Anwax ter Khüntter", intended to make children grow faster, is essentially a rose ointment to be soaked in a cloth which is bound on the child's head); others fall into the province of t.

Photography from the Viking 11 rocket at altitudes ranging up to 158 miles. iv, 8pp. 11 halftone plates, each with printed key facing. Sheet of printed catalogue cards bound in the back. Washington, DC: Naval Research Laboratory, 1955. 263 x 202 mm. Original printed stiff wrappers, cloth backstrip, minor dampstain on front cover, ownership signature. Together 3 items. Very good to fine. Extremely Rare Group of Materials Documenting the Record-Breaking Flight of the Viking 11 Rocket and the Spectacular High-Altitude Pictures of Earth Taken During the Flight. These materials include a carbon typescript of Baumann and Winkler's text (not including the "Future Program" and "Acknowledgement" sections at the end, which likely had not yet been written), the original photographic prints and diagrams used for their report, an early published version of the report illustrated with photographic prints, and a later version illustrated with halftones. Baumann and Winkler's report is extremely rare, with only one copy recorded in OCLC (Stanford University). On May 24, 1954, the Naval Research Laboratory launched the Viking 11 rocket from White Sands, New Mexico. The rocket rose to 158.4 miles above the Earth-an altitude record for a Western single-stage rocket up to that time-and the camera mounted to the rocket recorded spectacular images of the Earth from the threshold of outer space. "Viking 11 broke the photographic altitude record on May 7, 1954, when it carried a fifteen-pound K-24 aircraft camera to 158 miles. Two basic kinds of pictures were taken by that rocket as it climbed straight up and then started to tumble back down. Most showed the terrain below in splendid detail. One, taken at the top of the trajectory, clearly showed El Paso, Las Cruces, the Rio Grande, and three railroad lines, all spread out beneath cotton-puff clouds whose shadows dappled the desert floor. "Others, taken obliquely, captured terrain and clouds extending all the way to a gently curved horizon more than a thousand miles away. Two of the pictures, fitted together as a composite, made a portrait of sixty degrees of horizon southeast of White Sands. It showed a 1,036-mile-long crescent at the end of 600,000 square miles of parched land and, beyond, a mottled blanket of languid white vapor covering the Gulf of Mexico. Above the horizon, out beyond Earth's marvelously crisp edge, there was the stark blackness of deep space" (Burrows, This New Ocean: The Story of the First Space Age, p. 135). The rocket on which the camera was mounted was the eleventh in the series of twelve Viking rockets built and flown by the U. S. Navy between 1949 and 1955. The Viking rockets were the first large liquid-fueled rockets developed in the United States; they were intended to impr. Seller Inventory # 43007

Gedanken von den Eigenschaften, Wirkungen und Ursachen: Winkler (Winckler), Johann

About this Item: Kein Einband. Leipzig, in Verlag Bernhard Christoph Breitkopfs, 1744, 8°, (44), 168, 3 gefalt. Kupfertafeln; 1745, (16), 164, 4 gefalt. Kupfertafeln; 1746, (20), 164 pp., 2 gefalt. Kupfertafeln, alter Halbldereinband; feines Exemplar. First Edition of all three parts, rate and very rarely found all together; the plates are numbered from 1 to 9. Small Library stamp present on both sides of the first title page, further a binder mistake, a six-leaf gathering "b" belonging with the Vorrede of part 2 is bound-in with the Vorrede of part 1, no text is lost. Plate VII is trimmed, so that few millimetres of the image are lost; all together still a fine copy of this rare book. Here the complete titles: 1.: Gedanken von den Eigenschaften, Wirkungen und Ursachen der Elektricität, nebst einer Beschreibung zwo neuer Elektrischen Maschinen.

IV-VII. 3.: Die Stärke der Electrischen Kraft, des Wasser in gläsernen Gefäßen, welche durch den Muschenbrökischen Versuch bekannt geworden, erklärt von Johann Heinrich Winklern, . Leipzig, 1746 . Taf.VIII-IX. 1* "Properties, effects and causes of electricity; two new frictional machines, pp.10, 18; size of leather cushion, p.21; velocity of electric transmissions, p. 70; effect of magnet on electric sparks, p.63." Wheeler 2* "Chap. i., treats of the mutual effect of two electrified bodies; chap. ii, of what occurs when a neutral body is brought near one that is electrified; electrical nature of thunderstorm; reference to von Kleist's discovery of the Leyden jar, p.43." Wheeler Plate No. VIII gives "The earliest illustration of the Leyden jar". B. Dibner, Early Elect. Machines, p.27 3* "The Leyden jar with experiments and theory; the identity of lightning and machine electricity discussed, p. 137." Wheeler Two great innovations marked the development of the study of electricity in the early part of the fifth decade of the 18th century. While both of them were contributions to practice rather than to theory, they stimulated theory by providing a complex variety of new phenomena to challenge concepts that were inadequate. The improved "electrical machines", or electrostatic generators, and the condenser, or "Leyden Jar", made it possible to produce electrical effects on a far larger scale than had ever before been possible, thus affording the means for making wholly new types of experiments and also spectacular public demonstrations which drew considerable attention to the subject of electricity. These innovations came chiefly from Germany and Holland. Johann Heinrich Winkler (1703-1770), professor at the University of Leipzig was the first to report on Kleist's experiments in the second volume. He disclosed Kleist's " device as a means for storing and delivering a very powerful electric Shock. Winkler improved the Kleist Jar by winding a chain around the bottle, leading it to a metal plate and thence to the prime conductor of his multiple-globe generator. The shock resulting from this equipment caused him convulsions, blood-agitation, and fever. Winkler was the first to use a fixed cushion in the electric machine for applying friction instead of the hand, and by many is believed to have been the first to suggest the use of conductors as a means of protection against lightning. "During the year 1746 Winckler made use of common electricity for telegraphic communications by the discharge of Leyden jars through very long circuits, in some of which the River Pleisse formed a part, and it may be added that Joseph Franz had previously discharged the contents of a jar through 1500 feet of iron wire while in the .

Mannheimer 447 (Ausgabe Lüneburg 1696 mit 15 Kupfertafeln). - Hier die 2. Ausgabe, (erstmals 1696, 10 Jahre nach des Autors Ableben erschienen). Winkler ( * 13. 11. 1630, + 1. 3. 1686), Neffe des Andreas Gryphius. "Scharfe Satire auf den schlesischen Adel. Anonym erschienen, Winkler (auch Winckler, laut ADB nicht und niemals adelig!) war brandenburgischer Rat sowie Präsident in Breslau, trug in der Fruchtbringenden Gesellschaft den Beinamen `Der Geübte . Die Kupfer sind kulturhistorisch sehr merkwürdig und dabei von hoher Qualität. Gustav Freytag in den `Bildern aus der deutschen Vergangenheit` zitiert das Buch sehr oft und benutzt es ausgiebig. Der Form nach ist es ein Zeitroman, sicherlich voller Verzierungen und Anspielungen. Teilweise höchst amüsant, mit vielem Talent und noch mehr Bosheit verfaßt" (Kurt Wolfskehl in Kat. Mannheimer). - Die Tafeln in schwächeren Abdrücken "wie in allen Exemplaren" (Hayn-Got.). -Gebräunt und fleckig, handschr. Widmung auf Vorsatz, Notizen auf den hinteren Blättern. S. 139/140 mit ergänzter, abgerissener Ecke, dadurch Textverlust. Gerne senden wir Ihnen Bilder dieses Titels per E-mail. Please ask for pictures.
