      - Lithographie b. Selbstverlag von Joh. Benda, um 1866, 65,5 x 48,8 (H) Wilhelm war konservativ eingestellt und hatte wegen seiner Rolle bei der Niederschlagung der Revolution von 1848 den Beinamen Kartätschenprinz erhalten. Dennoch bedeutete sein Antreten als amtierender König 1858 eine gewisse Liberalisierung. Noch während des Deutsch-Französischen Krieges 1870/1871 hatte er sich dem Gedanken widersetzt, zusätzlich Deutscher Kaiser zu werden, erlangte aber im Kaiserreich große Popularität. Seine Regierungszeit war wesentlich vom Wirken Otto von Bismarcks als preussischem Ministerpräsidenten und Reichskanzler geprägt.

        THE BELTON ESTATE

      , 1866. 1866. [in original wrappers] A Novel. New York: Harper & Brothers, 1866. Original light brown printed wrappers (dated Jan 1866 on the rear wrapper). First Edition printed in America, issued as No. 263 of Harper's "Library of Select Novels." As Smith describes in great detail, in preparing the UK edition for publication, Chapman & Hall, arranged to send to Lippincott, of Philadelphia, some sets of sheets -- to the great astonishment and irritation of Trollope himself -- who when he discovered the plan, told C&H not to do so, but it happened nonetheless. Thus there was an edition, printed in England but bearing a Lippincott title page dated 1866, bound in cloth and for sale in America at $1.50 by a little before December 21, 1865; this Lippincott issue is actually the true first edition of the novel -- as C&H's three-volume edition did not come out until December 30th. Harper, undoubtedly pirating from Lippincott's edition, got this edition onto the streets on January 5, 1866, priced at only 50 cents as usual (in wrappers only -- no copies were issued in cloth).~This is a very good copy: both the front and rear wrapper are essentially complete (a few small edge-chips); however the fragile spine of the wrapper is perished. Smith pp 80-81 (and see pp 75-79 for the Lippincott history). Provenance: this copy's title page bears the penciled signature of the Trollope bibliographer Walter Smith.

        Two studio photographs of Aborigines, Brisbane, late 1860s

      Albumen print photographs, carte de visite format, each 101 x 64 mm, versos with imprint of Marquis, Photographer, George Street, Brisbane;both of the albumen prints are in very good condition, the mounts with some pale foxing. Marquis opened his studio at 82 George Street in 1866. These elaborately composed portraits - a tableau of an Aboriginal group gathered around a billy hanging over a simulated campfire, and a portrait of an Aboriginal man posing with a shield and missile club, date to between 1866 and around 1870. They are highly significant images in that they predate the well known series of larger format tableaux taken by J.W. Lindt in his Grafton studio around 1873. Worthy of note is the elaborate painted backdrop behind the group of men, women and their dog, which shows the serpentine Brisbane River .

        THE LAST CHRONICLE OF BARSET [in 32 weekly parts]

      1866. With Illustrations by George H. Thomas. London: Smith, Elder, & Co., 1866-1867. [In 32 weekly serial parts.] Original cream wrappers decorated in black, orange and blue. First Edition, in 32 weekly serial parts, of the sixth and last of the Barsetshire Novels. Trollope observed in his autobiography, ~I regard this as the best novel I have written. I was never quite satisfied with the development of the plot, which consisted in the loss of a cheque, of a charge made against a clergyman for stealing it, and of absolute uncertainty on the part of the clergyman himself as to the manner in which the cheque found its way into his hands.~THE LAST CHRONICLE OF BARSET first appeared in these 32 weekly parts, beginning on December 1, 1866 and ending on July 6, 1867. Included in each part is a full-page plate plus an opening vignette, by George H. Thomas. Also included in the 16th and 32nd parts are the preliminary leaves for binding up the parts into two volumes; each bound volume was also available directly from the publisher in March and July 1867 respectively.~The continuously-paginated Smith Elder ads (on pale lilac paper) appear at the beginning of 28 of the 32 parts (the exceptions being the 5th, 6th, 7th & 9th parts); all but eight of the other "compulsory" ads listed by Sadleir are present -- and in fact, with the exception of one inset slip in the 18th part (seldom present), all parts from the 10th through the 32nd are "ad-complete."~Condition, on the whole, is near-fine. As is often the case, the front wrapper of the 1st part and the rear wrapper of the 32nd part show a bit of soil and wear (one small edge-chip in the latter); additionally, the rear wrapper of the 17th part is damp-soiled. Other than these three, the parts are essentially in fine condition, clean and with very little wear. There is very little foxing on wrappers, text or plates. Sadleir (TROLLOPE) pp 78-81. Housed in a cloth clamshell case.

        Recherches Experimentales pour servir a l�Histoire de la Vitalite Propre des Tissus Animaux. These ..

      Paris:: E. Martinet 1866.. 4to. (270 x 216 mm) [4], 96 pp. Two engraved plates. Presentation inscription from the author, ?A M[ssieur] le D[octeur] Pettigrew avec les complements de l�auteur P Bert? at the top of the title page; light foxing to first few leaves. Modern quarter black levant morocco over marbled boards, gilt-lettered spine, gilt fillet on covers; very attractive binding. FIRST EDITION. This work is the thesis by Bert for his PhD. in natural sciences from the Coll�ge de France. The work is dedicated to his mentor, Claude Bernard, as well as Pierre Gratiolet and Henri Milne-Edwards, three eminent scientists who shaped his thought processes and methods in experimental physiology, the critical evaluation of experimental findings and the attempt to describe the basic laws of physiology. This treatise specifically deals with animal tissue transplantation. Although transplantation was thought to be physiologically impossible, Bert did succeed in creating ?double monsters,? uniting two rats by suturing their skins together. In another experiment, he succeeded in implanting the tip of the tail of a young albino rat under the skin of its back and demonstrating new bone growth and sensory impulse reversal. Through experimentation with temperature, humidity, and various chemical agents, he declared that cells and tissues lived their own lives, growing and differentiating independently of any superior vital force as long as they were in a suitable environmental surrounding. Interestingly, due to his involvement with politics, Bert was appointed as consul general to Tonkin (French Indochina) in 1886 where he died of dysentery shortly thereafter. Bert�s best known and most important work was La Pression Barometrique (1878) in which he demonstrated that oxygenation of tissues was dependent upon the partial pressure of oxygen in the tissues and the oxygen content of the bloodstream. He also demonstrated that asphyxiation due to a lack of oxygen in the bloodstream was quite different from poisoning due to excessive carbon dioxide exposure. In performing his research, Bert determined that the total barometric pressure upon tissues was not important, but rather the partial pressure of oxygen, an application of Dalton�s Law, and that exposure to excessive amounts of oxygen result in oxygen toxicity. Through the use of hot-air balloons and pressure chambers, he made discoveries related to the cause of Caisson�s disease and physiological problems encountered at high altitudes.

        Mount Moira 22,621 feet high

      Circa 1866. Albumen silver print, 230 x 290 mm, laid down on its original album leaf, Bourne's plate number 1544 incised in the negative, contemporary pencilled caption to album leaf beneath imageMount Moira 22,621 feet high; a strong print with rich, chocolate tones, some very pale foxing towards the top edge, otherwise in fine condition; the margins of the leaf with mild, scattered foxing, otherwise the mount is clean and stable. Copies of this spectacular and very early photograph of the Himalayas by pioneer photographer Samuel Bourne are held in the collections of the Fogg Museum, Harvard University (2.2002.112), Duke University Library (as part ofRL.00130), and the British Library (94/4 25). The view is taken from the remote Gangotri Glacier in Uttarakhand, near the present-day border of India and China. 'Samuel Bourne, the bank clerk and amateur photographer, arrived in India in 1863 during the early years of commercial photography. Photographs taken during three expeditions to Kashmir and the Himalayas between 1863 and 1866 demonstrate his ability to combine technical skill and artistic vision. These views display a compositional elegance which appealed to Victorian notions of the ‘picturesque’; strategically framed landscapes of rugged mountain scenery, forests, rivers, lakes and rural dwellings. The Gangotri glacier is in the Garhwal Himalayas, situated in Uttarkashi district. The glacier originates at the northern slope of Chaukhamba range of peaks. This is not a single valley glacier but a combination of several other glaciers that are fed to it and form a huge mass of ice.' (British Library)

        TELETES, Carte Philosophique et Mathématique Accompagnée du Calendrier magique et perpétuel, (en partie) contenant la contemplation des choses les plus profondes, et les plus secrettes, avec la connoissance complette de la philosophie

      In-plano (64 x 46,5 cm), bound in half green leather, green covers, gilt title on spine. Paper covers bound inside, title page, seven lithographic plates, of which five on double page.PROVENANCE: Manly Palmer Hall's copy, with his monogram "mPh" inlaid in paper in the lower right corner of the title page and first double page plate. A typescript leaf inside the book contains the following information: "The TELETES is listed as No. 97 in the catalog of the M. Lionel Hauser collection of esoteric books offered for sale at auction by Sotheby and Co., London, April 16, 1934. The catalog description is extremely brief: as follows: Brahe (Tycho) and T. du Chenteau, plates, wrappers, published in Turin, 1866. The work is of very large size, height nearly 25 inches, width 18 inches. On the title page is the word "Teletes", underneath which is a heavy cross and a capital "Y". It is said to be based on a work of Tycho Brahe dated 1582 which was apparently reprinted by T. du Chenteau in 1775. While it is certainly based upon the calendar of Tycho Brahe published in 1582, engraved by Theodore de Bry (we also have an original example), it has been enlarged and expanded with illustrations taken from the writings of Robert Fludd and with additional ornaments from various sources. The work is too large to be photostated, and several of the plates are double page. The engraving is passable, but much more crude that the original work of Theodore de Bry. It is printed on a good grade of heavy paper and is bound in a heavy, dull green paper wrap-around cover with the simple word "Teletes" on the front. There are twelve leaves in the book printed on one side only. In addition to the title page, there is a preliminary leaf printed on both sides followed by five double page plates." (Lionel Hauser was an Ancient Member of the Board Council of the Theosophic Society in France. He was a banker, the cousin of Marcel Proust and his financial adviser. )The work is immensely rare, we were not able to trace any other copy of this edition sold in an auction since then. There were a very few number of autographed copies printed. OCLC listed 2 more copies worldwide. The work is based on the Calendarium Magicum issued by Theodore de Bry in 1620 and edited by Grosschedel von Aicha. However recent studies have pointed there is no evidence of any connection with Tycho Brahe. The Calendarium was reissued in 1775 in a modified form by Du Chanteau. It was printed at the Chateau de Schaerbeeck, Bruxelles. New elements were added to it from the works of Robert Fludd, Mylius and Georg von Welling. As such, the whole chart became more elaborated. Finally, the masonic symbolism was also introduced by placing the two columns Jakin and Bohaz on the first sheet. This huge Chart was reprinted as an autographed copy by Giuseppe Wopaletsky in 1866 in Torino, with some modifications to the original chart and the copper engravings were replaced by lithographs. At the same time a new preliminary leaf printed on both sides was added. This leaf listed some works, probably considered as the source of inspiration for the Chart but also a lot of references to the different books of the Bible. Some new engravings were also included. Du Chanteau (sometimes written as Du Chenteau, Touzay on his real name) was a mathematician, member of an organisation knwon as the "Society of Unknown Philosophers". Best known for a little work: "Le Grand Livre de la Nature ou l'Apocalypse Philosophique et Hermetique" (1790), he was also in search for the secret of the Philosopher's Stone. According to Claude Antoine Thory, a distinguished french masonic writer, Du Chanteau's "Carte Philosophique et mathematique" contains the Great Mysteries of the Elus-Coens. The Chart in fact is a more elaborated copy of two other works: Tycho Brahe's "Calendarium Naturale Perpetuum Magicum" engraved in 1582, and Esprit Sabbathier's "Idealis Umbra Sapientiae Generalis" from 1679. Du Chanteau was a member of "Les Philalethes", organised in 1773 at the Lodge of the United Friends (La Loge des Amies Reunies) from Paris. The members of this Lodge were all initiates in occult sciences and hermetics. They were also practicing alchemy and theurgy and had also contacts with a lot of non masonic hermetic Orders. Among them were the Marquis de Chefdebien, the alchymist Clavières, Savalette de Langes, the Prince d'Assia de Beverley. It was in the intention of Du Chanteau (declared in the text below the title of the Chart) to amend Brahe's Chart and to rectify the tables and magical characters which in his opinion were not accurate. He points to the legend that made possible the distinction between the elements which are in strict conformity with the original, those which he thought to modify the details, and the new pieces added by him. In the end, the Chart presents a huge mathematical synthesis of the Universe, enriched with theosophical, masonic, kabbalistic and alchemical symbolism, which makes Du Chanteau to declare: "La fameuse Carte de Tycho-Brahe sur les nombres, ne fait qu'une septieme partie de cet ouvrage dans lequel elle se trouve incluse"(inscribed on the double folio title page of the Chart).Condition: Very good, sporadically foxing on the back of the cover paper wrappers, minimal foxing on the title page. In this Torino autographed reprint of the original Chart the name of "Du Chenteau" was wrong printed as "Du Cahteau". In this particular copy it was slightly erased and written correct with black ink, hard to notice without a close examination. It seems this correction was calligraphically made before the Sotheby Auction, as in the catalogue and on the paper typescript present inside the work the name is written correctly. All engravings in perfect condition, a splendid copy with a remarkable provenance.

        A previously unrecorded photograph of Tom Wills, cricketer and pioneer of Australian Rules Football

      Albumen print photograph, carte de visite format, 92 x 58 mm, mount 103 x 63 mm; blind stamped at lower left P. Dawson Photographer Hamilton; blank verso; the albumen print with light marks and staining; Tom Wills is standing in the back row, fourth from right, wearing a striped shirt. The photographer, Patrick Dawson of Hamilton in Victoria's Western District, is listed by Davies & Stanbury (Mechanical Eye) as being active at his premises in Gray Street between 1866 and 1868. During 1866 Tom Wills was in the Western District recruiting and coaching Aboriginal cricketers who worked on various stations in the region. In the summer of that year he took a team of Aboriginal players to Melbourne to play a match against the Melbourne Cricket Club on Boxing Day. The players he had selected, taught and managed were to form the nucleus of the Aboriginal cricket team which toured England in 1868 under the guidance of Charles Lawrence. In the light of the present previously unrecorded photograph, perhaps it is no coincidence that it was also Patrick Dawson who was later to photograph the Aboriginal cricketers in the same Gray Street studio before their departure for England. Dawson produced a famous montage of his portraits of the individual players in this group (see State Library of Victoria,Accession no. H5233). The eminent Australian cricket historian, Tom Thompson, has identified the present photograph as the Victorian team that played against NSW in the Inter-colonial match at the MCG, December 26-30 1867, which Victoria won by 7 wickets.Tom Wills is back row, fourth from right;William Hayman, the manager, is front centre (Hayman was owner of Lake Wallace Station in the Western District and, like Wills, played an important role in introducing local Aboriginal men to the game of cricket; he was to manage the Aboriginal team on its tour of England); lower right is Cosstick; the new bowling sensation Frank Allen, a wiry 17 year old is second left (standing); other players are Wardill, Gibson, Conway, Kelly, Robertson, Campbell, Greaves and Bennett. Wills took 5/55 in the first innings, and Allan 5/59 on debut which Hayman noted was "unprecedented". In the second innings Allen took 3/43 and Wills 4/94. Dick Wardill scored the first century at the MCG, which was also the first first-class hundred ever scored in Australia. The NSW team was captained by Charles Lawrence, who captained the Aboriginal team on its tour of England.

        The ornithology of Australia : being illustrations of 244 Australian birds, with descriptive letter-press.

      A rarely offered complete set of one of the most important Australian ornithological publications of the nineteenth century. [Brisbane : Printed for the author by T.P. Pugh, 1866-1870]. Folio, nineteenth century gilt-lettered cloth (joints a little worn), bookplate to the front pastedown of English ornithologist George Dawson Rowley, manuscript list of plates tipped-in, manuscript title leaf supplied (lacking the printed title), unpaginated, 126 hand-coloured lithographed plates, heightened with gum arabic, each with an accompanying leaf of descriptive letterpress, occasional foxing; a very good copy. English-born naturalist, artist and musician Sylvester Diggles arrrived in Sydney at the end of 1853 and settled in Brisbane in January 1855. In 1859 he became one of the founders of the Queensland Philosophical Society, and in 1861 he established the Brisbane Philharmonic Society. Diggles' principal interests in the natural sciences were ornithology and entomology, and his The ornithology of Australia was first issued in Brisbane as 126 plates in 21 parts, without text, between 1866 and 1870. It is not known how many sets were issued, but unquestionably the number was small. These plates covered about one third of the known bird population of Australia. However, due to lack of funds, Diggles had to discontinue the project. Between 1870 and 1875, bound versions were issued which included descriptive text, and also a title-page either in manuscript or basically printed. There are a few copies known to have a title-page ornately printed in colour, but these all seem to have some variation, as "Diggles evidently used this title-page for copies which he regarded as important" (Pigott, The Bird man of Brisbane, 2010, p.110). The work was reissued under a separate title in 1877. Rare; only three complete sets recorded at auction in the past 70 years. Ferguson 9146, 9147, 9148; Nissen IVB, 247 Provenance : George Dawson Rowley (1822-1878), his bookplate to front pastedown and initialled note to title page Dudley Dickison (1896-1967), sold at auction by Peter Arnold, 17 September 2007 (lot 12) Private collection, Australia

        The Book of Roses

      Boston: J.E. Tilton and Company, 1866. First Edition. Hardcover. Good. Inscribed to Parkman's protege "Jackson Dawson with kind regards of [signed] F. Parkman 14 Dec. 1871" on first blank. 225pp. Original mauve cloth with gilt lettering, brown endpapers. First edition, first printing. An unsophisticated Good- copy that could use repair as its front and rear hinges are split, with head missing and exposed headband, spine-sunned and edge-worn cloth. A trail of light staining to fore edge. Internally in much better shape with relatively bright, clean pages; small spot of sticker damage to front free endpaper. A scarce signature by the author, a Harvard professor of Horticulture and historian who is best known for his books The Oregon Trail and the seven volume France and England in North America.Also nice horticultural association copy. In the 2015 article "Filing a Missing Rose Claim: Jackson Dawson and the Arnold Rose" Benjamin Whitacre outlines the story of how Parkman brought Rosa rugosa to the US from Asia in 1861 and hired Dawson as its propagator. Dawson proved to be a master of hybridization, creating the Arnold Rose. Despite the Arnold Rose's commercial failure and Dawson's subsequent eclipse, it apparently became known as the "America" rose in 1895 and made a lasting impact in rose-growing circles under that guise.

        Influence of Distance from and Nearness to an Insane Hospital on its Use by the People."

      Separately printed from the American Journal of Insanity, XXII, January 1866, pp 361-406. This publication paginated 1-46. - *The Jarvis Law* Dr. Edward Jarvis (1803-1884) conducted a study in 1866 to determine how much a factor distance from an "insane hospital" was in regards to people using the facility. It sounds like an obvious-enough question with a probably-obvious answer, but these things are really never so until someone actually looks at the data and extracts an answer. And so Dr. Jarvis performed this function, answering the question once and for all that yes, indeed, the further away you are from a facility the less likely you are going to be to use it, and thus we have Jarvis' Law. "Mental health researchers have long considered the importance of distance on psychiatric service use. Systemic analyses regarding the relationship between distance and the use of mental health care can be traced back to the mid nineteenth century, when Edward Jarvis identified inverse associations between home-to-hospital distance and the rates of admission to Oneida County Hospital of New York and the Kentucky Lunatic Asylum in Fayette County. He claimed that people living near psychiatric hospitals send more patients there for admission than do those living far away (Jarvis’s law).The study also revealed urban–rural differences in the prevalence of insanity, and high admission rates to psychiatric hospitals among people residing near the city center. Jarvis’s law has been identified in numerous studies since the mid-twentieth century."--Kuon-Chiao Tseng, et al, "Travel Distance and the Use of Inpatient Care among Patients with Schizophrenia", Adm Policy Ment Health. 2008 Sep; 35(5): 346–356, published online 2008 May 30 ***Nice copy in original wrappers.

        FRAMED AUTOGRAPH LETTER, Signed, on '35 South Street' stationery. To a Madame Schwabe (?). Dated July 24, 1866

      London, 1866. A very nice, framed VG+ ALs from this Champion of the Nursing profession, which shows a hint of aging & wear to the extremities. Frame is modern, showing little wear. On rear, affixed printed appraisal sticker, from one Robert J. Connelly.. Letter: 7-3/4" x 5-1/8". Frame: 13" x 10-1/4" A fully signed letter from Nightingale to Madame Schwabe (?) requesting tickets to a Jenny Lind July 30th concert performance, "if they are still to be had." Johanna Maria Lind, better known as Jenny Lind, was a Swedish opera singer. Lind, often known as the "Swedish Nightingale", married her condutor/pianist, Otto Goldschmidt, February 5, 1852, near the end of her US tour, in Boston. They returned to Europe initially, and, from 1855 on, lived in England for the rest of their lives. Although she refused all requests to appear in opera after her return to Europe, Lind continued to perform in the concert hall. One such occasion was July 13, 1866, where she appeared with Arthur Sullivan, and the Times subsequently reported, "there is magic still in that voice ... the most perfect singing - perfect alike in expression and in vocalization. ... Nothing more engaging, nothing more earnest, nothing more dramatic can be imagined." No doubt, reading such a review, Ms Florence Nightingale sought to avail herself of a subsequent performance. An-in-all, a lovely artifact for those who wish to have a tangible, physical connection to the "The Lady with the Lamp".

With hundreds of wood engravings in text, 17 chromoxylographed maps, 36 tinted lithographed plates and 11 chromolithographed plates. Volume 1 in modern red half morocco, gilt edges. Volume 2 in contemporary half morocco, gilt edges. Atlas volume in modern red half morocco.

      Cordier, Indosinica, cols. 1012-1013; Cordier, Sinica, cols. 329-330; Gomane, L'exploration du Mekong; Satow 147. Rare complete but composite set of the first edition of a travelogue and scientific study of Indochina, published as the results of a French expedition in Indochina. The expedition was formed to examine the navigability of the Mekong river and thereby bolster French confidence in the colonial adventure in Indochina. Over the course of two years the expedition under the leadership of the navy officer Ernest Doudart de Lagrée and subsequently under Francis Garnier, would travel almost 9000 km between Saigon and Shanghai.The resulting publication was limited to just 300 copies. The first volume, written by Garnier, is a travelogue of the harrowing journey through Southeast Asia. Although this official account was heavily censored by the French Naval Ministry, a more complete version of this text had previously been published in instalments in the journal Le tour du monde. Garnier presents an adventure where the expedition leader died, its members were rifled with disease and ultimately made a long journey barefoot due to the total disintegration of the expeditioners' shoes. A description of the expedition's detour to the temple complex of Angkor Wat did much to propagate the image of Angkor in Europe. The hundreds of woodcuts after drawings made by Louis Delaporte illustrate the monuments, landscapes and people of Indochina. A second volume presents the scientific findings of the expedition and contains contributions on topics such as meteorology, geology, mineralogy, anthropology and botany. The large-scale atlas volume contains numerous maps, and lithographs of the most spectacular of Delaporte's drawings, including some in colour.Volume 1 with library stamp. Water damage throughout and large tears in the final page repaired with Japanese paper. Binding of volume 2 worn at the extremities, spine damaged at the head and foot, pages slightly discoloured. Atlas volume with minor foxing. Good composite set, with the atlas volume in very good condition.

        [THE FATHER OF RUSSIAN PHYSIOLOGY] Refleksy golovnogo mozga [i.e. Reflexes of the Brain]

      St. Petersburg: A. Golovachov, 1866. [4], II, 186 pp. 8vo. Contemporary quarter-leather binding. The name of the author and the book title as well as owner's initials in gilt on the spine. Owner's private stamp on the title. Some side foxing on the first seven pages of the text and on the last five. The top of the spine has been restored. Overall copy is in good condition. Very rare. First edition of the ground-breaking work that established the basis of the Russian School of Physiology. Ivan Mikhailovich Sechenov (1829-1905) single-handedly created this field of Russian science, by introducing electrophysiology and neurophysiology into medical laboratories. This is one of the main works by Sechenov. Originally an article with the same name was to be printed in Sovremennik, the most influential periodical of the time, but thst was forbidden by the censor, and it was published in 1863 in the medical journal, Meditsinsky vestnik. The expanded book version, now a classic text, appeared four years later. This work marked the beginning of the era of objective physiology. Sechenov demonstrated that since reflexes cannot occur without external stimuli, physiological activity is brought about by stimuli that act on the sense organs. He made a significant contribution to our knowledge of reflexes by determining that reflexes depend not only on current stimuli but also on past influences. Sechenov believed that the retention of vestiges in the central nervous system is the basis for memory; inhibition is the mechanism for the selective control of behavior; and the operation of the amplifying mechanism of the brain is the foundation for motivation. Ivan Pavlov, the most famous of Sechenov's pupils, called him "the father of Russian physiology".
