    Hamburgisches Magazin, oder gesammlete Schriften zum Unterricht und Vergnügen aus der Naturforschung und den angenehmen Wissenschaften überhaupt. Achtes Bandes (Volume 8).

    Published by Georg Christian Grund and Adam Heinrich Holle, Hamburg and Leipzig, Germany, 1751.

    Six issues bound in one volume, hardcovers, leather covered boards, gilt coat-of-arms embossed on the front and rear covers, six spine bands, gilt decorations on spine, marbled page edges, marbled endpapers, 12 mo., 4.5x7 inches (10.5x18 cm), 658 + [14] pages. Illustrated with one folding plate, engravings on the title page of each issue, and tail pieces.

    The Hamburgisches Magazin was a scientific journal containing essays, letters to the editor, etc., on the natural and physical sciences, often highlighting work from foreign scientists translated into German.

    GREAT ASSOCIATION COPY. There is an OWNERSHIP BOOKPLATE of JOHANN FRIEDRICH BLUMENBACH, b.1752 d. 1840, on the front pastedown. Blumenbach was one of Germany's most important and influential early anthropologists. The bookplate has his PRINTED SIGNATURE on its face. I feel the Signature is PRINTED even though others claim it is HAND SIGNED / AUTOGRAPH. The two copies I found online, one held by a noted HISTORY OF SCIENCE bookseller and another held by the important Herzog August Bibliothek (Herzog August Library), claim that the signature on Blumenbach's bookplates is HAND SIGNED. However, the signatures on both the examples presented online, and mine, are EXACT in even the minutest details, and convince me that this is a printed signature. I have seen his signature on documents in the past and, like all signatures, they all had noticeable, even if sometimes small, deviations. These three examples have none that I can detect. A RARE BOOKPLATE and IMPORTANT ASSOCIATION COPY.

    GOOD MINUS CONDITION: The front cover is detached but present, the rear cover is just holding on with the cord bindings, the leather spine title labels are missing and the spine gilt has substantially worn off, the leather covered boards are rubbed and scraped, the gilt coat-of-arms on the front and rear covers is bright but scratched and rubbed; the marbling on the top edges has faded away but is visible on the front and bottom page edges; internally, there is light browning and spotting throughout but the text is always clear and fully legible, overall the pages remain tightly bound, clean and unmarked. A complete, presentable copy with a detached front cover.

    This publication is often found disbound with the various articles sold separately. It is hard to find a complete volume (i.e. 6 bound issues).

    RARE with the ownership bookplate of the great natural scientist Johann Friedrich Blumenbach.

    About JOHANN FRIEDRICH BLUMENBACH (from Wikipedia):

    ******Johann Friedrich Blumenbach, b.1752 d.1840, was a German physician, naturalist, physiologist, and anthropologist. He is considered to be a main founder of zoology and anthropology as comparative, scientific disciplines. He was also important as a race theorist.

    He was one of the first to explore the study of the human being as an aspect of natural history. His teachings in comparative anatomy were applied to his classification of human races, of which he claimed there were five, Caucasian, Mongolian, Malayan, Ethiopian, and American. He was a member of what modern historians call the Göttingen School of History.

    Blumenbach's contemporaries considered him one of the great theorists of his day and a leading light of German science. Kant and Friedrich Schelling both called him "one of the most profound biological theorists of the modern era". In the words of science historian Peter Watson, "roughly half the German biologists during the early nineteenth century studied under him or were greatly influenced by him".******

    TWO VOLUMES bound together in a single large folio book, pagination is consecutive. Leather covered spine and paper covered boards, spine has five raised bands, embossed gilt pattern, and a leather spine label titled in gilt, folio 9x14.25 inches (23x36 cm). Pagination: XIV, 600 pages (Pars II begins on page 253).

    ILLUSTRATED with a Map (Magna Graecia) and 10 large fold open plates, as follows: Fold open Map following page 46. Fold open Plate of Vases following page 138. Three fold open Plates following page 252. Two fold open Plates following page 256. Three fold open plates following page 280. Fold open Plate of Bowls following page 554.

    Important treatise relating to the bronze tables of Heraclea datable between the end of the 4th and the beginning of the 3rd century BC. Found in a stream bed between 1732 and 1735 near Metaponto. The tablets are especially important for their look at Roman Law. They are now held in the National Archaeological Museum of Naples.

    CONDITION: The covers are worn, scuffed, scraped and with light stains to the spine; the front cover is disbound as is the front free endpaper and the half title page; the rear cover is just hanging on with the binding cords. Internally, there is foxing to the first and last few pages, and a bit here and there; the last few pages have shorelining at the bottom gutter area not affecting text, the last page is age toned, the half title page is loose, is creased, and is worn at the disbound edge but it is present and still solid; overall the inner pages are very nice, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. The map and 10 plates are all in amazingly good condition, sturdy and feel rarely opened, they have some offsetting and age toning, and a few have a small tear to the edge of a bottom fold where the plate is bound in, but that is it, no significant tears and all are bright, clean and clear.

    About the HERCLEAN TABLETS (from Wikipedia):

    ******The Heraclean Tablets (in older texts: the Heraclean Table(s); in Latin: Tabulae Heracleenses) were bronze tablets found a short distance from the site of Heraclea Lucania, between it and Metapontum. They are significant for the study of Roman Law.

    As a consequence of its having accepted Roman citizenship in 89 BCE, Heraclea became a municipium, and the Tabulae Heracleenses contain a long Latin inscription relating to the municipal regulations of Heraclea, which is a part of a copy of a more general law, the Lex Iulia Municipalis, issued in 45 BCE for the regulation of the municipal institutions of towns throughout Italy. This document is a major authority for the municipal law of ancient Italy; it is engraved on two tablets of bronze, on the back of which is a long Greek inscription of earlier date, probably the 3rd century BC, defining the boundaries of lands belonging to various temples.

    The tablets were separate, and the major one was in two fragments. They were found in 1732, and 1735, in the bed of the Cavone river. The tablets are now in the Naples National Archaeological Museum.

    The Latin inscription was first published by Michel Maittaire in 1735. Both inscriptions were published with commentaries, by Alessio Simmacho Mazzocchi, b.1684 d.1771, in Naples in 1754, 1755.******

About FELIX MARCHAND (from Wikipedia): ****** Felix Jacob Marchand (22 October 1846 - 4 February 1928) was a German Pathologist born in Halle an der Saale. He studied medicine in Berlin, and later became an assistant at the Pathological Institute in Halle. In 1881 he became a Professor of Pathological Anatomy in Giessen, and two years later garnered the same position at Marburg. In 1900 he succeeded Pathologist Felix Victor Birch-Hirschfeld (1842-1899) at the University of Leipzig. In 1904 Marchand was credited with coining the term Atherosclerosis from the Greek "athero", meaning gruel, and "sclerosis", meaning hardening, to describe the fatty substance inside a hardened artery. His name is lent to the eponymous "Marchand's Adrenals", which is theaccessory adrenal tissue in the broad ligament of the uterus. Among his written works is a 1915 textbook on pathology that he co-authored with Ludolf von Krehl (1861-1937), called "Handbuch der allgemeinen Pathologie".******

The relative isolation of the Three Gorges due to complexity of terrain and difficulty of communications ensured a comparative absence of major upheval and calamity during the historical period. As a result. the region enjoyed extended periods of stable development, and moreover, was blessed with unusually favorable conditions for the preservation of cultural relics. According to the surveys carried out coordinate with the Three Gorges Dam Project there are over eight hundred localities with cultural relics below ground that will be either submerged or otherwise affected by the reservoir. These remains buried below the surface consist mostly of sites and tombs spanning a range from the Palaeolithic to the Ming and Qing periods. The sites are highly diverse in nature and include examples of settlements belonging to agricultural and fishing communities, walled towns and regional centres of administration, industrial sites such as salt wells and kilns, ancestral temples and other centres of religious activity, staging posts and trade routes, and defensive structures and fortified passes at strategic locations. The tombs are no less varied in date and form..." INTERNATIONAL BUYERS PLEASE NOTE: This book will require additional shipping charges.
