DSB VI, 241-53: 'Helmholtz inaugurated his study of physiological optics with his invention of the ophthalmoscope in 1851. His friend Ernst Brücke had recently shown how the human eye could be made to glow with diffusely reflected light, like the eyes of many animals ... H. realized that by means of a simple optical apparatus this reflected light could be obtained as a magnified, sharply focused image of the subject's retina. He published the mathematical theory of the ophthalmoscope with an account of the improved instrument in 1851.': Hirsch III, 151: Hirschberg para 1022: G&M 5866: 'Invention of the ophthalmoscope, one of the greatest events in the history of ophthalmology ...': Heirs of Hippocrates, 1886: Norman coll. 1041: ' ... the ophthalmoscope, which made it possible for the first time to study the fundus, the optic nerve and the blood vessels of the living eye, and vastly improved the capacity for diagnosing pathalogical conditions.': Lilly Library, p. 205: Waller, 4294: Truman Blocker cat. p. 186/87: Not in Becker coll.: Albert e.a.

His invention of the ophthalmoscope (1851) made ophthalmology an exact science. It was followed by his phakoscope and ophthalmometer.': Gorin, p. 125/31: 'The man responsible for the greatest event in the history of ophthalmology, which advanced it toward a goal of independence as a speciality, ...': Münchow, p. 576 etc.: Mitchell III, 98: Grolier Club, 100 books famous in medicine, item 65: 'Although visualization of the fundus had been accomplished prior to Helmholtz's publication, both by Johannes Evangelista Purkyne and by Charles Babbage, Helmholtz was the first to convince the world of the importance of the ophthalmoscope. The value of the instrument was immediately appreciated by ophthalmologists, including William Bowman, Frans Cornelis Donders, and Albrecht von Graefe, and it was through Graefe's efforts in particular that the ophthalmoscope became part of the armamentarium of ophthalmologists throughout Europe and America. He [Helmholtz] never practiced ophthalmology, but his invention, which gave ophthalmologists the ability to examine what had previously been called "the black cataract", greatly improved the capacity for diagnosis of eye diseases and thus revolutionized visual science.': See colour illustration back cover.‎

Part II has chapters devoted to the examination of various natural objects. in the manner of Robert Hooke's 'Micrographia' e.g. the flea, the poison of the viper, hairs and pollen ... Baker's most important scientific achievements were the observation under the microscope of crystal morphology, for which he received the Copley medal, and his account of an examination of 26 bead microscopes bequethed to the Royal Society by Anthony van Leeuwenhoek. His measurements of these unique microscopes ... are most valuable historical material.':‎

Ptolemy next proceeds to set forth the natures and powers of the stars according to the observations of the ancients and conformably to natural science"... The second bok begins by distinguishing prediction of events for whole regions or countries, ... the remainder of the second book is concerned chiefly with prediction of wind and weather through the year and with other meteorological phenomena such as comets. The last 2 books take up the prediction of events in the lives of individuals from the stars, in other words the science of nativities or genethlialogy. The 3rd book discusses conception and birth, how to take the horoscope - Ptolemy insists that the astrolabe is the only reliable instrument for determining the exact time ...

‎DUMAS, JORGE.‎

‎"Musical #4": An Original Signed Lithograph, Titled and Dated by the Artist.‎

‎1969. SUPERB LATIN AMERICAN LITHOGRAPH BY THE URUGUAY-BORN ARTIST JORGE DUMAS - sc A superb powerful black & white lithograph on 20 inch high by 26 inch wide heavy creamy art paper. The image depicts a Latin-American family, with native Indian features, playing musical instruments. The man stands at center, playing a wind instrument as his wife, seated at right of the image, strums a mandolin. Her daughter, at left, holds a dish out in her right hand in which to collect donations. Signed "Jorge Dumas" in pencil at lower right and dated "'69". An "Artist Proof", so stated at lower left, titled "Musical #4" in pencil under the center of the image. Slightly creased at the corners and edges with some minor soiling and a tiny tear to the left edge. A rich and powerfully evocative image. Born in Montevideo, Uruguay in 1928, the Latin-American artist Jorge Dumas studied at the "Taller Toras Garcia" and first exhibited his work with the Hungarian sculptor Anthony Khun in Sao Paolo, Brazil in 1946. Traveling through South America in the 1940's and 50's, he worked as a set designer, a newspaper illustrator (particularly for "El Labraso") and taught drawing and geometry. In 1959 or early 1960, he traveled to the United States and, with Carlos Paez, painted a mural at the Pan American Union Building in Washington, D.C. Traveling through Europe in the 70's, he returned to New York to open his own studio where he printed his own work as well as those of such well known artists as Peter Max, Romare Bearden, Salvador Dali, Agam, Erte, Peter Hurd, and many other major artists of the period. His work is represented in the permanent collections of many institutions throughout the United States, Europe and Latin America.‎
