         History of Arizona Territory Showing Its Resources and Advantages; With Illustrations Descriptive of Its Scenery, Residences, Farms, Mines, Mills, Hotels, Business Houses, Schools, Churches, &c. From Original Drawings

      Wallace W. Elliott & Co., San Francisco 1884 - Folio (13 3/4 x 10 3/4"). 322, [2]pp. Original half black leather over blind- and gilt-stamped brown buckram, with gold lettering to spine and front cover. Tissue-guarded lithographic frontispiece depicting a view of Big Canyon, near the Diamond River. Title page within decorative frame.This work documents the history, the individuals (natives, pioneers, settlers), scenes and events of life in the mining towns, farms and ranches, forts and military outposts, and the growing communities of the frontier territory that was Arizona. The introduction indicates that the text has been divided into twenty-eight sections for easy reference, including a history of the Arizona Territory (including an history of the first Missions and missionaries); Native Indian tribes; Arizona Territory's physical features, climate, soils, and natural resources; the "state of society in the Territory;" the newspapers of the Territory; biographical sketches of prominent citizens; the public schools of Arizona; "miscellaneous historical matters," a description of the various counties: Cochise, Apache, Yuma, Pima, Maricopa, Mohave, and Gila among others. In the section entitled "Native Indian tribes described," all the tribes are listed, with a brief description of each: - The Yumas "a quiet, inoffensive set of beings now, though in times past war-like and ferocious. The men are tall, and finely formed, and the women, when not disfigured by tattooing, are not remarkably repulsive;" - The Papagos (the Baptized) as "they were converted to Christianity by the Spanish missionaries, and are still connected with that church. The Papagos are further advanced in civilization than other tribes. They live by cultivating the soil and raising stock. They are peacable, well-disposed, and have never asked for or received much assistance from the Government;" - The Apaches: "As far as intellectual ability they equal any race of men on earth. Of course their mental powers have not been educated or called forth as far as books are concerned or the experience of other nations or individuals than themselves. But as far as mountain, plain, desert, oasis, rivers, lakes, trees, plants, and animals of their own country, they are unexcelled;" - The Navajos are "a branch of the Apaches and are intelligent, active, and industrious. After being conquered, they were removed to a reservation on the Pecos River, but the climate proved unhealthy, and after many had died, they were allowed to return to their old home. They are said to own as many as 1,500 horses, 500,000 sheep, and 5,000 head of cattle. They manufacture Navajo blankets that sell at from $25 to $150; also make saddle cloths, sashes, fancy bridles, and other articles that sell for $30,000 per year;" The Moquis "are said to be the purest type of the Aztec living, and the only tribe who can decipher the inscriptions on the ancient pottery and the hieroglyphics on the cliffs;" Also includes a description of the Hualapais, the Pimas and the Maricopas. This work is illustrated with numerous in-text engravings and no less than 63 lithographic plates, of which one is in color (Geological Formations in Arizona) and two are double-page spreads. The lithographic illustrations depict Arizona Territory's most prominent citizens and their homes, including many specific ranches, farms and properties; many of the buildings in Phoenix, Tucson as well as street-scenes and views of other towns (Flagstaff, Prescott, Wilcox, Globe, Florence, Fort Grant, Mesa, Lehi, Tombstone, Silver King, Jerome), mines, mills, and other industries of the territory. Published in 1884, "History of Arizona Territory" remains to this day a tremendous visual resource for the American West. Head and tail of spine chipped. Binding heavily rubbed along spine and joints, with abrasion to leather. Some water-staining to back cover only. Binding in overall fair to good-, interior in very good condition.

         Mekka in the latter part of the 19th century[:] daily life, customs and learning[;] the moslims of the East-Indian-Archipelago.Leiden, Brill; London, Luzac & co, 1931. 8vo. With 20 plates (including the frontispiece) showing 21 reproductions of photographs, and 2 maps (including one folding). Original publisher's dark blue cloth.

      - Macro, Bibliography of the Arabian Peninsula 1238; D. van der Wal, Christiaan Snouck Hurgonje: the first western photographer in Mecca, 1884-1885 (2011). First edition of the English translation of a book on the holy city Mecca by the Dutch orientalist and professor Christiaan Snouck Hurgronje (1857-1936). The book is divided into four large chapters, dealing respectively with daily life, family life, learning and the Jâwah in Mecca. Each chapter is illustrated with several photographs, mostly portraits, depicting among others a physician, a merchant with his slave, a bride and groom, pilgrims and the doorkeeper of the Kaabah, and also including a view of the Masjid al-Haram mosque. The book closes with an index and two maps, one showing Mecca. During his travels Snouck Hurgronje took many pictures of the holy city and its inhabitants, which made him the first western photographer in the city. In 1888 he published two volumes in German entitled Mekka describing his travels, to which a Bilder-atlas zu Mekka was added in 1888. The present translation is based on the second of the two German volumes from 1888, "which seems likely to appeal to a wider public" (p. V), thus representing a Mecca from nearly fifty years earlier. The two maps included in the first German volume are included here as well, and the 21 reproductions of photographs are a selection from the photographs in the Bilder-atlas.Binding only slighty worn on the top and bottom of the spine with somewhat weak hinges. Otherwise a very good copy, with both the textleaves and plates in very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition]

         Collection of 11 French offprints and extracts on the Islamic world].[Paris (1 Leipzig), 1831-1859]. 11 items in 1 volume. 8vo. With many passages in Arabic. Contemporary half vellum.

      - Cf. Irwin, For lust of knowing, p. 148; for Defrémery: Cooper, Men of the time (1884), pp. 330. Collection of 11 French offprints and extracts of articles concerning the history of the Islamic world, all by notable orientalists, covering diverse topics such as the architecture of the Arabs and Moors, the astronomy of the Chaldeans, the Hindustani language, the Persian chronicle Mojmal al-tawarikh, the Ghurid dynasty, the kings of Achlath and Mardin (modern day Turkey), the Persian Mozaffarid dynasty, the Persian Sultan Barkiarocq, and India, but also including the autobiography of the famous Arab historiographer and historian Ibn Khaldun. Most of the authors were students of the distinguished orientalist Silvestre de Sacy. "it was inevitable that French Orientalism in the first half of the nineteenth century should be dominated by de Sacy's students. The most prominent of these was Etienne-Marc Quatremère (1782-1857)" (Irwin). Four of the articles are written by a student of Quatremère, Charles Defrémery (1822-1883), who had a "high reputation as an orientalist" (Cooper) himself.With a manuscript index to the articles. A couple leaves slightly browned and a small tear in the title-page of the third article, otherwise in very good condition. Binding very good as well.

He graduated from the University of Edinburgh Medical School with an MD in 1825 later returning the practice in Dublin at Meath Hospital. he went on to create two important works on cardiac and pulmonary diseases A Treatise on the Diagnosis and Treatment of Diseases of the Chest (1837) and The Diseases of the Heart and Aorta (1854) as well as one of the first treatises on the use of the stethoscope. He emphasised the importance of clinical examination in forming diagnoses, and of ward-based learning for students of medicine. Both CheyneStokes breathing (the alternation of apnoea with tachypnoea) and StokesAdams syndrome are named after him. Stokes' sign is a severe throbbing in the abdomen, at the right of the umbilicus, in acute enteritis. Stokes law is that a muscle situated above an inflamed membrane is often affected with paralysis. In 1858 he was elected a foreign member of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences. In June 1861 he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society as: "The Author of A work on the Diseases of the Lungs, and of a work on the Diseases of the Heart and Aorta and of other contributions to Pathological Science. Eminent as a Physician". He was elected President of the Royal Irish Academy for 187476.

Although he used the name of Lewis Carroll to avoid all personal publicity, Dodgson "broke his rule of disavowal often, usually with children whose friendships had ripened to the point where he wished to confide in them, to share a great secret with them, but sometimes even earlier, when he was in pursuit and he rightly assumed that the fame of the author of the Alice books would help to break the ice with the parents of likely candidates" (Cohen, p. 191). Originally written in 1867, this short poem was first published in 1869, when it appeared in Phantasmagoria with slight variations. This poem also appears as the final text on the last page of his 1886 facsimile, Alice's Adventures Under Ground (1886). provenance: Private Collection of Justin Schiller, Christie's New York, Wednesday 9 December 1998, Lot 15.

         Benner's Prophecies or Future Ups and Downs in Prices

      1884 - BENNER, Samuel. Benner’s Prophecies or Future Ups and Downs in Prices. Cincinnati: Robert Clarke, 1884. 16mo, gilt-stamped pictorial green cloth, patterned endpapers. $1750.Third edition, expanded, of Benner’s guide to speculation in hogs, corn and other commodities.Farmer Samuel Benner found his finances obliterated by the 1873 panic and a hog cholera epidemic. Forced into retirement, Benner decided figure out what caused the economy to experience such drastic depressions, in the hopes that he would be able to predict them. After careful study, he came up with this work, in which he published a number of charts which presented price cycles for various commodities including pig iron, cotton, corn, and hogs. Astonishingly, Benner’s predictions proved preternaturally accurate and E.R. Dewey, Director of the Foundation for the Study of Cycles, remarked that Benner’s pig iron price forecast was "the most notable forecast of prices in existence." For most of the 20th century, Benner successfully predicted the United States’ major downturns and crises. While Benner himself felt that his cycles were divinely inspired, of particular interest to market theorists and Elliot Wave followers is the relationship of Benner’s cycles to Fibonacci numbers and the Krondatieff cycle. The first edition was published in 1876. This third edition was expanded to included an additional 38 pages with updated tables and a new chapter on railroad stocks. Interior fine, only slightest rubbing and light soiling to original cloth. A near-fine copy. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      insgesamt ca. 7000 Seiten Gebundene Ausgabe Unter den Grundlagenwerken der medizinischen Biographik nimmt das "Biographische Lexikon der hervorragenden Ärzte einen besonderen Rang ein. Das von August Hirsch herausgegebene Grundwerk "Biographisches Lexikon der hervorragenden Ärzte aller Zeiten und Völker" erschien in fünf Bänden 1884 1888 in Wien. Das Werk wurde mit dem von Julius Pagel herausgegebenen Biographischen Lexikon hervorragender Ärzte des 19. Jahrhunderts (1901) fortgeführt, das seinerseits eine Fortsetzung u.d.T. Biographisches Lexikon der hervorragenden Ärzte der letzten fünfzig Jahre erfuhr, das, von Isidor Fischer herausgegeben, 1932 1933 in zwei Bänden erschien. Für die bleibende Bedeutung dieser mehrteiligen Medizinerbiographie zeugt auch die Tatsache, daß die Bände mehrfach nachgedruckt bzw. als unveränderte Auflagen vom Originalverlag Urban & Schwarzenberg nach dem Krieg (1962) wieder ins Programm genommen wurden.Der jüngste der Teile enthält Biographien von 7800 Medizinern aus aller Welt, genau genommen aus 52 Ländern, wenngleich mit deutlichen Schwerpunkten (die folgenden Zahlen beruhen auf der Auszählung der Namen des Verzeichnisses ... nach Herkunftsländern.

Vertreten sind die sonstigen europäischen Länder, insbesondere auch die Mittel-, Ost- und Südosteuropas, angeführt von Rußland (207) berücksichtigt sind auch überseeische Länder (von den bereits erwähnten USA abgesehen) wie diverse südamerikanische oder Japan (150). Wie hervorragend diese Ärzte wirklich waren, ist eine andere Sache, da das Lebenswerk in über der Hälfte der Fälle noch nicht abgeschlossen war, da zum Zeitpunkt des Erscheinens der beiden Bände 1932/33 noch 4408 Personen oder 56 % noch am Leben waren.Rückensignatur, ordnungsgemäß vorne und hinten ausgestempelt, ansonsten gepflegte, gut erhaltene Bände aus aufgelöster Bibliothek einer großen deutschen Medienanstalt KOMPLETTPREIS für 8 Bände bei Versand ins Ausland erfragen Sie bitte zuerst die Versandkosten

         LEAVES OF GRASS

Tall 8vo, publisher’s original medium olive-brown S cloth, lettered and decorated in gilt on the spine and with the author’s autograph rendered in gilt on the upper cover. Binding A, diagonal fine-ribbed, with light blue vein-pattterned endpapers, top edge gilt. 382 pp. A fine copy indeed, old school label at the pastedown. THE PHILADELPHIA EDITION AND A SCARCE ISSUE OF THIS AMERICAN MASTERWORK. AN IMPORTANT PRINTING. Whitman’s LEAVES OF GRASS portrayed America at the crossroads between an old world, soon to be caste off, and the new world of our future present. "Always the champion of the common man, Whitman is both the poet and the prophet of democracy. The whole of LEAVES OF GRASS is imbued with the spirit of brotherhood and a pride in the democracy of the young American nation. In a sense, it is America’s second Declaration of Independence: that of 1776 was political, this of 1855 intellectual. .The poems are saturated ‘with a vehemence of pride and audacity of freedom necessary to loosen the mind of still-to-be-formed America from the folds, the superstitions, and all the long, tenacious, and stifling anti-democratic authorities of Asiatic and European past’. To the young nation, only just becoming aware of an individual literary identity distinct from its European origins, Whitman’s message and his outspoken confidence came at a decisive moment. "LEAVES OF GRASS was Whitman’s favorite child. From the time of its original publication.until the year of his death, he continued revising and enlarging it. If (his) reputation has fluctuated over the years and his position among, if indeed not at the head of, the list of great American poets was not assured until some time after his death, there was never any doubt of the matter in his own mind. ‘I know I am deathless’, he wrote. ‘Whether I come to my own today or in ten thousand or ten million years, I can cheerfully take it now, or with equal cheerfulness I can wait.’ Time has vindicated his conviction."
