        Framed Display! President Johnson signs a government check to his steward, African-American William Slade, who was also Abraham Lincoln's valet. Lincoln would try his speeches with Slade and it is reported that he may have even had a lost version of the Emancipation Proclamation!

      Washington, DC, April 24, 1867. 8" x 3.25". "Partly Printed Check Signed ""Andrew Johnson"" as President, 8"" x 3.25"" visible. Completed in manuscript. Washington, April 21, 1867. Drawn on The First National Bank of Washington, Government Depository and Financial Agent of the United States, payable to ""Wm Slade's order"" for $1290.87. Double matted with a 5.75"" x 8"" bust portrait of Johnson. Gilt-framed under glass, overall size, 14.5"" x 21"". In apparent fine condition.William Slade, an African American. was President Lincoln's usher, valet, and messenger. Natalie Sweet wrote in her article ""A Representative 'of our people': The Agency of William Slade, Leader in the African American Community and Usher to Abraham Lincoln,"" published in the Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association, Vol. 34 Issue 2, Summer 2013, ""The task fell to Slade to make certain that maids were on top of the cleaning, that meals were served at the appointed hour, and that footmen were in their positions at the time the Lincoln family needed them."" When Lincoln died on April 15, 1865, Slade prepared and dressed his body for burial. Slade continued working in the White House when Vice President Andrew Johnson succeeded Lincoln as President. According to Sweet, ""When the position of steward became available in the summer of 1865, President Johnson appointed Slade to the highly coveted post. As steward, Slade was now in charge of household finances - a job that only went to the most trusted of domestics. Servant pay and the buying of goods now fell under his personal responsibility. News of the appointment spread to Washingtonians by way of the Evening Star, which cheerfully announced, 'Mr. Slade is admirably qualified for his new duties, and will conduct the internal economy of the White House with all the efficiency that has characterized the discharge of his previous duties.'"" When William Slade died in 1868, President Johnson and his two daughters attended his funeral services. "

        The English Constitution.

      London: Chapman and Hall,, 1867. Reprinted from the "Fortnightly Review Octavo. Original purple cloth, covers stamped with blind rule border and central floral device, spine ruled and lettered gilt, coated endpapers. Ownership inscription of "H.R.H. Prince Leopold K.G. March 1870" to the front free endpaper, with his printed bookplate as the Duke of Albany to the front pastedown. Binder's ticket of Virtue and Co. to rear pastedown. Spine lightly faded, small puncture to front joint, head of spine and front joint with short snag; one or two pale spots; an excellent copy with a royal provenance. First edition in book form, from the library of Prince Leopold, youngest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. First published in instalments in The Fortnightly Review between 1865 and 1866, "its purpose was to show the actual working of the Constitution in the period between the first and second Reform Acts, and in this it was brilliantly successful. 'No author of modern times', wrote Dicey, 'has done so much to elucidate the intricate workings of English government as Bagehot. His English Constitution is so full of brightness, originality, and wit, that few students notice how full it is also of knowledge, of wisdom, and of insight... The English Constitution is undoubtedly Bagehot's greatest work. He never revised it, although he wrote a preface for the second edition in 1872. It has retained both its freshness and relevance, and rightly ranks as one of the English classics" (St John-Stevas). "This classic account of that most elusive and least codified of entities, the Constitution of England, never lost its popularity, and shows signs of being elevated from the rank of first-class handbook to a place with De Tocqueville as one of the most important texts in political literature ... Bagehot's work is of more than English importance: it is the great defence of empirical as against theoretical politics." (PMM). From the library of Prince Leopold, eighth child and youngest son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert.

        Handbook of the Sphygmograph : Being a Guide to its use in clinical Research.

      - London : Robert Hardwicke, 192 Picadilly, 1867, kl.8°, VI, (2), 83, (1) pp., 3 Taf., 13 Fig., orig. Leinenband. First Edition of the "Handbook of the Sphygmograph : Being a Guide to its use in clinical research. To which is appended a Lecture delivered at the Royal College of Physicians on the 29th of March 1867 on the Mode and Duration of the Contraction of Heart in Health and Disease". - - "The first account of the use of the sphygmograph in England was published in The Lancet during 1865. It was part of a report of the proceedings of a meeting in London and mentions that Dr Francis E. Anstie was the first English physician to use the sphygmograph, which was described as 'an exquisitely designed instrument. of precision and remarkable beauty'. It goes on to say that Dr Burdon-Sanderson was also using the device (Anon. 1865). On 17 February 1866, another report appeared in the same journal (Walton 1866) in which abnormal pulse recordings taken with Marey's instrument from the right radial artery were compared with the normal tracings from the left radial artery. The differences between the sphygmograms were attributed to an aneurysm of the right axillary artery. This appears to have been the first report of the diagnostic use of the device in England. Later, in March 1866, the British Medical Journal published an extensive paper in two parts by Balthazar W. Foster of Birmingham. Foster later published a monograph describing the use of Marey's sphygmograph in England. The conclusion of Foster's monograph contains a brief but interesting exchange of letters between Foster and The Lancet over who really introduced the device to England. As we have noted, Anstie appears to have been the first to use the device, although Sir John Burdon Sanderson may also have been using it at the same time. Anstie himself subsequently published several articles on the sphygmograph and the correspondence appeared in The Lancet on 26 May and 9 June 1866. - - In 1867 J. B. BURDON-SANDERSON (1828-1905) published several reports on the sphygmograph and a monograph entitled 'Handbook of the Sphygmograph' (Burdon-Sanderson 1867)." N.H.

        Naika hiroku [Trans.: Diagnosis and Treatment of Various Diseases].

      One finely handcolored port. of the author & 43 woodcuts (of which 42 are finely handcolored). 14 vols. 8vo, orig. wrappers, orig. block printed title labels on upper covers, stitched. [Mito]: Jijuntei zo, 1867. First edition. Honma (1804-72), a member of a distinguished family of physicians, studied under Phillip Franz von Siebold who had brought many printed Western works on medicine and surgery to Japan. Honma also learned anesthesia from Seishu Hanaoka, the first Japanese physician to master this specialty. In Nagasaki, Honma studied vaccination. Honma established his practice in Tokyo, was physician to the local aristocracy, and became a professor of medicine. Not only an accomplished surgeon, Honma was deeply knowledgeable about internal medicine. He was one of the first physicians in Japan to make public his techniques and procedures. Hitherto, medical knowledge was kept closely guarded as family secrets for successive generations of doctors. This is the author's great work on internal medicine in which Honma provides more than one hundred case histories. The most notable aspect of this book is Honma's description of Western vaccination in Vol. 14. Each step of the treatment is described and beautifully illustrated in a series of well-colored full-page woodcuts, depicting the day-by-day progress of the procedure. Honma's use of vaccination met with great resistance because the general population feared being turned into cows by use of the cowpox virus. This book describes the anatomy of the body, circulation and the pulse, many types of diseases ranging from gout to fevers to arthritis, dysentery, infectious diseases, heart diseases, paralysis, pneumonia, asthma, spitting of blood, jaundice (finely illustrated), liver diseases, frostbite, psychological illnesses, and gynecological and pediatric diseases. The author describes many pharmacological recipes. The illustrations are clearly based on earlier Dutch medical books. Some worming here and there, sometimes touching the text, but well mended. Vol. 12 with some dampstaining. A fine set. .

      1867. London: Alexander Strahan, 1867. 4 pp ads dated December 1866. Original green cloth ornately decorated in black and gilt, all page edges gilt. First Edition of MacDonald's famous collection of original fairy tales for children. Mentioned on the half-title verso, rather than on the title page, is the fact that the volume is illustrated by Arthur Hughes (twelve plates). The five tales, all involving fairies, are: "The Light Princess," "The Giant's Heart," "The Shadows," "Cross Purposes" and "The Golden Key." The first three had appeared within MacDonald's 1864 novel ADELA CATHCART, and "Cross Purposes" had been in the Christmas 1862 "Beeton's Christmas Annual"; the last in this volume, "The Golden Key" (one of MacDonald's best-known), appears here for the first time. Within a few years, MacDonald would follow this up with three book-length fairy tales, AT THE BACK OF THE NORTH WIND, THE PRINCESS AND THE GOBLIN, and the sequel to the latter, THE PRINCESS AND CURDIE.~MacDonald has frequently been compared with his good friend Charles Dodgson, a.k.a. Lewis Carroll: both were poets and novelists, both were keenly interested in drama, and both were "struggling with a religious inheritance they could not fully accommodate" [Cohen] (both were clergymen without an ecclesiastical appointment). In fact, Dodgson asked MacDonald and his wife to read the draft of ALICE'S ADVENTURES IN WONDERLAND, and to read it to their children, before deciding whether or not to have it published.~Encouragement to publish the story came from Mr. & Mrs. George MacDonald, friends whose taste and judgment he trusted. As the MacDonalds read the draft, they probably recognized elements of George MacDonald's PHANTASTES, his 1858 fairy tale, which Charles knew well. [Cohen] (Shaberman in fact devotes a whole chapter to the MacDonald/Carroll relationship, and provides specific examples of passages in PHANTASTES... such as the hero going down a perpendicular tunnel in search of a white lady -- he had already met a white rabbit.)~This copy is in green cloth (others are in blue, without priority). Condition is near-fine, with very little wear -- the main flaw (typical for this book) is simply that the gilt on the spine is less than bright. The half-title bears an inked presentation dated 1868, as well as a 1923 signature (which appears again on the frontispiece recto). This book, intended for children and yet delicate in its construction, is now quite scarce in this condition about 150 years later. Sadleir 1475 (in blue rather than green cloth, though with the same Dec. 1866 ads); Wolff 4283 (in green cloth, but with Dec. 1868 ads); Shaberman 31 (mentions only green cloth and Dec. 1866 ads).

The snow slopes, now softened by the sun, had also to be crossed with great care; for here a slip might detach a considerable quantity of the snow & then carry us down to the precipice on a kind of avalanche. Certainly it was not a place for inexperienced persons; but all three of us had great experience in the Alps, so that after a magnificent excursion of 15 hours we found ourselves again on the summit of the Wengern Alp [...]". - Somewhat dust-soiled; edges stronlgy frayed.

        [Slave Trade.] Class B. - Correspondence with British ministers and agents in foreign countries, and with foreign ministers in England, relating to the Slave Trade. From January 1 to December 31, 1867. Presented to both Houses of Parliament by command of Her Majesty. London, Harrison and Sons, 1868.

      1867. Folio. VII, (1), 136 pp. Top edge gilt. Sewn, with remains of former spine. Rare British parliamentary papers concerning the slave trade on the eastern coast of Arabia, particularly, that conducted between Muscat and the Qasimi dominions of Ras Al-Khaimah and the Musandam Peninsula, but also mentioning the Bani Yas, Ajmani, and Amalgavine tribes (p. 125), and a visit to Khamis Bin Ahmad, ruler of Fujairah. - A letter from the Governor of Bombay in Council to Sir Stafford Northcote, Secretary of State for India, forwards "papers relative to the Slave Trade on the Muscat Coast" and further states that: "The suggestion contained in Colonel Pelly's letter of the 3rd ultimo [printed as one of the twenty inclosures with the Governor's letter], as to the necessity for employing cruizers at the mouth of the Gulf, between Jask and Mussendom, seems to us sound and practical, and we trust that means may be devised for carrying it into effect." Inclosure 1 to the Governor's letter, a letter from H. F. Disbrowe, the Political Agent, Muscat, to the Secretary to Government, Bombay "submit[s], for the information of Government, extracts from the diary of my journey, performed overland from Muscat, in the Indian Ocean, to Ras-el-Khymah, in the Persian Gulf", noting that "the journey was performed during the close of the spring and the opening of the summer of the year 1865, and the extracts refer to the Slave Trade as existing between Muscat and Mussendom." Inclosure 2 is headed: "Slave Trade. - Eastern Coast of Arabia. Extracts from Lieutenant-Colonel Disbrowe's Diary of his journey (overland) from Muscat, Capital of the Sultan of Muscat's Dominions, to Ras-el-Khymah, Capital of the Joasmee Chief's Dominions." The first of the five extracts reads, in part: - "Musnaah, March 16, 1865. I gained other information to-day. If my informants can be relied on, the curse of slavery still lies heavy upon the people of Batinah, and many hundred slaves are yearly brought from the Zanzibar districts, and landed at places on the coast between Muscat and Mussendom. I was told, but cannot believe, that some 500 in number reach every year in the neighbourhood of Musnaah ["about sixty miles by land north of Muscat" (footnote)] alone. [...] On enquiry into the reason of this, I gathered that it was owing to the influence of the wild and uncivilized Bedouins. The Bedouins inhabiting the numberless villages that stretch along the Batinah plain in vicinity to the sea-shore, are more powerful than of yore. They have built for themselves fortlets. They own date plantations. They own vessels. They disregard the commands and authority of the Al-boo-Saeed. [...] Slaves are landed not precisely at Musnaah, but secretly at places on the shore opposite Bedouin strongholds. Once landed, they are disposed of by private sale, regular brokers being the go-betweens to conduct the sale operations. The selling price may range from 10 dollars minimum to 40 dollars maximum, young slave girls fetching the highest." In the fourth extract from his diary, Disbrowe makes suggestions for the deployment of two Indian navy vessels: "one [...], sailing or steam, fully equipped for boat service, to be off Ras-el-Hudd, to be mostly at anchor, but occasionally to move a little north and south of her appointed anchorage" and "a second [...], a steamer of light draught, likewise well-equipped with boats, to be on the move between Ras-el-Hudd and the entrance to the Gulf, searching every vessel Treaty engagements permit her to search." He opines that such a "course, if strictly adopted [...], would, in a few years, go far to extinguish, probably extinguish, the Oman traffic, go far also to extinguish the Persian and Turkish traffic viâ the Gulf." In the fifth extract he records his meeting with "Khumees bin Ahmed, Lord of Fujeerah": "I did not like him. I found him repulsive and unpolished. There was, too, something mysterious about him. He seemed afraid to move beyond the limits of his domain. I could not help, however, admiring his independence of bearing in other respects." The final "Zanzibar" papers (pp. 132-136) express "uneasiness among European residents at [the] approaching advent of Northern Arabs at Zanzibar." Also includes reports relating to the fate of Dr. Livingstone, as well as to the progress of negotiations with Majid bin Said, Sultan of Zanzibar, intended "to put a stop to the export of slaves by the Northern Arabs". - A good copy. Wilson p. 210.

      - Paris, P. Asselin, Successur de Béchet Jeune et Labe, 1867, 8°, (4), 107, (1) pp., 8 Holzschitte, 2 lith. Brief Facsimile, feiner Halbleinenband. Erste Auflage! Mit eigenhändigem dreizeiligen signierten Geschenkvermerk von Félix Hippolyte Larrey (1808-1895) auf Titelblatt. - - "Der naheliegende Gedanke, die in einem Stumpf zurückgebliebenen Muskelkräfte für die Bewegung einer künstlichen Hand auszunützen, findet sich zum ersten Male angedeutet in der schon oben zitierten Arbeit*) des Grafen Beaufort, "Recherches sur la prothese des membres, Paris 1867". Danach soll ein Zeitgenosse Larreys erwogen haben, die Sehnen eines Amputationsstumpfes mit den Fingersehnen einer künstlichen Hand in direkte Verbindung zu bringen, um auf diese Weise ihr eine normale Bewegung zu ermöglichen. Ausgeführt ist eine derartige Operation, soviel ich sehe, dagegen nicht." - - *) "Ein von dem Grafen Beaufort (1867) konstruiertes Modell, die sogenannt« "Prothese du pauvre" erwarb durch den niedrigen Preis (25 Fr.) allgemeinere Verbreitung. Mit sehr einfachen und zweckmäßigen Mitteln wird bei ihr das Bailifsche Prinzip durchgeführt. Die Invaliden waren in der Lage, mit dieser künstlichen Hand leichtere Gegenstände zu fassen und zu halten; für längere und schwerere Arbeit war sie dagegen nicht geeignet." Ferdinand Sauerbruch, Die willkürlich bewegbare künstliche Hand (1916), p.4,8 - - "Der Comte de Beaufort entwarf Prothesen für die Amputierten des Krimkrieges und der Italienischen Kriege, in welche das Second Empire verwickelt war. Er be schrieb diese in seiner 1867 in Paris publizierten Broschüre "Recherches sur la prothèse des membre"s. Einige der Prinzipien von de Beauforts wurden modifiziert auch bei modernen Prothesen angewendet; etwa künstliche Hände, die man öffnen und schließen kann, indem man wiederholt am gleichen Zügel zieht, die passive Flexion des Ellbogens durch Druck gegen einen Hebel seitlich am Thorax, der Doppelfederhaken zum Halten von Gegenständen, der dem gespaltenen Haken von Dorrance ähnlich ist. - - De Beaufort entwarf und stellte auch einfache, billige Prothesen für Unterschenkel- und Oberschenkelamputierte sowie am Knie Exartikulierte her. Diese wurden aus Holz und Kork hergestellt und mit Leder überzogen; sie hatten einen kurzen kufenförmigen Fuß, der einen harmonischen Gang ermöglichte." J.P. Kostuik (Hrsg.), Amputationschirurgie und Rehabilitation: Erfahrungen der Toronto-Gruppe (1985), p.11 - - "Rare first edition of this detailed and well illustrated guide to artificial limbs, written by Amédée Comte de Beaufort. A subject of great interest for many years, Beaufort describes a number of articulated devices of his own invention for amputations of both upper and lower limbs. Having been appointed as "d'inspecteur general adjoint des établissements de bienfaisance" in 1847 his motivation in particular was to help the less fortunate in society, with an emphasis on designing simple, practical and inexpensive prostheses, that would be more widely available. A further catalyst for his work was die Crimean and Italian campaigns of die 1860s which had left a vast number of amputees. The present work highlights a number of inventions, including his lightweight articulated wooden leg prosthesis, composed of two splints articulated at knee level, as well as his articulated arm and hand, which was controlled by die amputee through a shoulder harness. The Controlling power started with a strap buttoned into die front button of die trousers, passed through a loop to the opposite axilla, over to the amputated side to a pulley at the elbow, and then to the artificial hand. He also invented a simple hand with a movable thump and a more complicated one in which repeated pulls on die same cord opened and closed the fingers. As the present work reveals, Beaufort had presented his inventions for peer review, and had received the considerable praise and support of both Broca and Larrey, and which led to Army authorities adopting his .

        Journal d'un voyage dans l'Inde anglaise, à Java, dans l'archipel des Moluques, sur les côtes méridionales de la Chine, à Ceylan (1864)

      1867Firmin Didot frères, fils et Cie, Paris, 1867. 2 tomes reliés en un volume. 18 x 24,5 cm (R), in-8°, XXXII pp. + 407 pp. & (4 pp.) + 472 pp. ; avec 4 planches hors texte : 1 planche lithographiée et coloriée (le Taj-Mahal à Agra du côté de la Jumna), 1 planche lithographiée en noir (Un éléphant porteur de reliques, et chefs kandiens à Ceylan), toutes deux placées en frontispice et deux photographies originales contrecollées (Tombe d'Akmud Oud Doula, Agra et Vue de l'intérieur de la Chaïtya, grottes de Karli), reliure demi basane fauve, dos à 5 nerfs orné de fers dorés avec pièces de titre olive et grenat, tranches mouchetées. Rare récit d'un voyage de 11 mois fait à travers l'Asie par un homme de 65 ans ("touriste âgé" comme il se définit). Les bibliographes (Cordier, Bib. sinica, p. 2130 ; Numa Broc, Asie, pp. 140-141) ne nous apprennent rien sur l'auteur, dont on ignore jusqu'au prénom. Homme du Second Empire, il est fasciné par la modernité et la vitesse (la distance qu'il parcourt en moins d'un an est impressionnante) et fort admiratif de la civilisation britanique et de la colonisation anglaise. Son ouvrage fourmille de renseignements utiles au voyageur (prix et durée des transports, description des hôtels...) et de descriptions pittoresques. Très bel exemplaire la reliure étant lég. frottée mais très solide, l'intérieur très frais.

        Lock of hair. No place or date.

      1867. A blond strand of hair, tied into a circular locket with pink string, mounted on a certificate of authenticity dated 1867. Matted. 8vo. The locket's provenance is accounted for by the included certificates of authenticity and confirmation of sale for nearly its entire first century: first, in the possession of the Weimar librarian and counsellor Theodor Kräuter (1790-1856), since 1805 a scribe at the Ducal Library and Goethe's private secretary from 1811 onwards; by descent to his nephew, the Weimar lawyer and writer Robert Keil (1826-96), who vouches for its authenticity on his drystamped, sealed stationery: "These are hairs of Schiller which belonged to the estate of the late librarian and counsellor Dr. Theodor Kräuter here in Weimar, former private secretary to Goethe. This is confirmed by Kräuter's nephew, Dr. Robert Keil, lawyer. Weimar, 20 April 1867". This certificate was probably occasioned by the relic's transfer to the Weimar Schillerhaus, the custodian of which was a distant relative of Keil's, the Weimar art dealer Eduard Lobe. But nine months later, Lobe sold the lock to the historically-minded Chicago lawyer and entrepreneur, Thomas Barbour Bryan (1828-1906): "This lock of Schiller's I have on this day sold to Mr. T. B. Bryan, and herewith confirm its authenticity. Weimar, 23 January 1868". Bryan is remembered as a sponsor of and Commissioner-At-Large for Chicago's 1893 World's Columbian Exposition. As early as 1860 he had exhibited G. P. A. Healy's portrait of Abraham Lincoln at his "Bryan Hall" gallery; in 1864 he had a lithographic facsimile of Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation prepared which he sent the President for examination. - Acquired from an Austrian noble collection.

        Das Kapital. Kritik der politischen Oekonomie. Erster Band. Buch I. Der Produktionsprocess des Kapitals. Hamburg, Verlag von Otto Meissner, 1867.

      1867. 8vo. XII, 784 pp. Contemporary half green morocco over marbled boards; yellow coated endpapers. All edges marbled. In custom-made blue morocco-backed clamshell case. (Includes): Zweiter Band. Ibid., 1885. XXVII, (1), 526, (2) pp. Contemp. half cloth with giltstamped spine title. All edges marbled. (And:) Dritter Band (erster, zweiter Theil). Ibid., 1894. 2 vols. XXVIII, 448 pp. IV, 422 pp. Contemp. half calf with marbled covers and giltstamped spine labels. In custom-made blue leather entry slipcase. First edition: a magnificent copy of one of the most influential books ever published. The exceedingly rare first volume was the only one to be completed by Marx in his lifetime, while the second and third volumes - also included here in their first editions - were completed posthumously by Engels from Marx's papers (1885 and 1894). "The history of the twentieth century is Marx's legacy [...] Within one hundred years of his death half the world's population was ruled by governments that professed Marxism to be their guiding faith. His ideas have transformed the study of economics, history, geography, sociology, and literature" (Wheen). "Marx himself modestly described 'Das Kapital' as a continuation of his 'Zur Kritik der politischen Oekonomie', 1859. It was in fact the summation of a quarter of a century's economic studies, mostly in the Reading Room of the British Museum" (PMM). - Tiny ownership stamp ("Ex coll. J.R.K.") on the rear pastedown. Professional repair to title page. Volume 2 shows a tiny flaw to the top of the outer hinge Text very clean and without the usual foxing and staining. Volume 3, which appeared in two parts, is bound as a two-volume set in matching half calf, removed from the famous "International Institute of Social History" with their stamp ("Int[ernationaal] Instituut [voor] Soc[iale] Geschiedenis Amsterdam") on front flyleaf. PMM 359. Rubel 633, 635, 636. Wheen, Marx, p. 1.

Le premier tome est consacré à la partie expérimentale et le second à la partie clinique, plus particulièrement à la chirurgie conservatrice des membres et à l'ostéoplastie. De la bibliothèque du Professeur Jacques Reverdin (1842-1929) illustre médecin genevois qui fut chirurgien en chef de l'ambulance suisse durant le siège de Paris en 1870-1871. Adjoint et suppléant de Louis Odier à l'hôpital cantonal (1874-1877), il y fut ensuite chirurgien en chef (1878-1882). Professeur de pathologie externe et de médecine opératoire dès la création de la faculté de médecine de l'université de Genève (1876-1910), il fonda avec son cousin Auguste la première clinique chirurgicale privée à Genève. Il découvrit à Paris la greffe épidermique (1869), inventa et mit au point l'aiguille à suture dite "de Reverdin" (1879), décrivit le "myxœdème opératoire" (affection de la thyroïde, 1882), dont la paternité fut le sujet d'une controverse avec Theodor Kocher. Atteint de surdité en 1910, il cessa ses activités médicales et demissionna de sa chaire de professeur. Il s'adonna à l'étude des papillons; ses travaux lui valurent également une notoriété internationales. Il fut le cofondateur de l'Assocition des médecins du canton de Genève. (Roger Mayer in DHS).
