      - Berlin, Verlag von August Hirschwald, 1869, 8°, XII, 605 pp., 15 Holzschn., 3 lith. Taf., feiner Halbleinenband. First Edition - Rare "Separat - Abdruck" aus dem Archiv für klinische Chirurgie. Bd. X." - "Billroth was reproted to be a good plastic surgeon, espacially in facial reconstruction, because of his artistic imagination. During his time in Zürich, he operated upon 32 children, up to the age of two years, with clefts of the lip and palate - using the method of Magaigne and von Langenbeck. His mortality was 11,5 per cent and he concluded, from this figure, that early operation in children was justified. Concerning the speech results of his adault patients (19 cases), he noticed that they were discouraging - and that the foremost problem in palatal closure was, indeed to obtain good spech." McDowell, The source book of plastic surgery, p.204f. - First Edition in bookform. Rare, In 1860 Billroth accepted a call to Zürich. He remains seven years there, and during this period more than 8000 surgical patients passed through his hand. The report of his activity is characterised by a relentles sincerity and selfcritism. - Billroth's Jahresberichte - Meilensteine chirurgischer Forschung. - Erste Ausgabe in Buchform. "Seine 'Chirurgische Erfahrungen' bedeuten einen Markstein - den Beginn der klinischen Forschungen im empirischen Sinne, insbesondere auf dem Gebiet der Chirurgie."- Sandblom - "Seine Jahresberichte aus Zürich u. Wien eröffneten jedem einen klaren Einblick in die Resultate seiner Klinik. Sie sind mit rücksichtsloser Offenheit und schonungsloser Selbstkritik geschrieben, und das zu einer Zeit begonnen, in welcher die Misserfolge überwogen. Seine vorausgeschickte Begründung gehört zu dem Schönsten im Schriftum unseres Faches."-Payer, Billroth Gedenkrede (1929) "Das Einzigartige an ihm waren seine Wahrheitsliebe und seine Selbstkritik. Seine Erfahrungsberichte aus den 60er und 70er Jahren des vorigen Jahrhunderts wirkten schlechthin sensationell, weil er es als erster wagte, alle, auch die negativen Ergebnisse seiner chirurgischen Tätigkeit ungeschminkt zu publizieren." -E.Kern Nach 12 vergeblichen Bewerbungen erreichte 1859 den Dreißigjährigen der Ruf nach Zürich, hier wirkte Billroth 7 Jahre. In diesen wenigen Jahren begründete er seinen chirurgischen Weltruf. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Alphonse Lemerre 1869 - - Alphonse Lemerre, Paris 1869, 16x24,5cm, relié sous emboitage. - Edition originale de la traduction de Leconte de Lisle. Demi maroquin rouge à coins, dos à 5 nerfs, tête dorée, contreplats et gardes de papier à la cuve, couvertures et dos conservés, quelques rares rousseurs, emboitage de toile beige, reliure moderne. Précieux envoi autographe de l'auteur à George Sand : "A Madame G. Sand, hommage de respectueuse admiration, Leconte de Lisle". Dès ses premiers écrits, Leconte de Lisle se plaça directement sous l'influence de George Sand, à qui il dédia deux poèmes de jeunesse : A George Sand et Lélia dans la solitude. Cette filiation se transforma progressivement en admiration réciproque, puisque George Sand rendra hommage à l'auteur dans un article du Temps du 31 juillet 1872 : "M. Leconte de Lisle est grand poète aussi, et d'une si forte originalité qu'il est devenu chef d'école. On lui doit une vraie reconnaissance ? il faudrait que ce fût une reconnaissance nationale". Cet envoi, sous forme d'hommage, rend compte de l'estime et de l'admiration réciproque que se portaient les deux auteurs. Très bel hommage littéraire sur un exemplaire joliment relié.

        Changing Base; or What Edward Rice Learnt at School

      Boston: Lee and Shepard. 1869. First. Scarce early printing, first published in 1868. 12mo. 282pp, four plates. Original brick red cloth with gilt title and baseball decorations on the spine. A little foxing to tissue guard and frontispiece plate, but a bright and clean very near fine copy. Although Shannon refers to this as "The first known novel incorporating baseball activity" (p.39), we have handled one earlier (Uncle Nat; or, The Good Time Which George and Frank Had, Trapping, Fishing, Camping Out, etc. by Alfred Oldfellow. New York, 1865). Thus this is the second novel to feature a substantial amount of baseball activity (two and a half chapters with an extended description of a schoolboy game), and the first to feature an obvious reference to the game in the title. The author, son of the famous orator Edward Everett and cousin of the author Edward Everett Hale, also served in Congress. A very nice copy. .

        Utopia: William Morris's marked-up copy for printing the Kelmscott Press edition of 1893

      [London: A. Murray & Son,, 1869]. Small octavo (174 × 105 mm). Bound in quarter linen backing blue paper boards, the cheaper form of binding executed by J. and J. Leighton of London for the Kelmscott Press. Bound without title, prelims, and pp. 73–104 (at the beginning of the second book). Some light spotting and browning, a few ink smudges and fingerprints in margins, one leaf torn and neatly repaired, one or two small marginal tears. With library marks of the Chelsea Public Library: small old ink stamp at foot of verso of first and final leaves, spine titled in ink manuscript at head with accession number, boards with unobtrusive library blind-stamp, a little soiled and with remains of sticky tape at foot, spine slightly spotted. William Morris's printer's copy with pencil notes and markings in his hand throughout and his cut signature in ink mounted on front pastedown, also with annotations in ink by the editor F. S. Ellis and his note at end "Read for the press after the old copy by F. S. Ellis & imprinted &c". Subsequently Robert Proctor's copy with his bookplate; his widow's label "Given by Mrs. Proctor in memory of William Morris & of her son Robert Proctor" on front pastedown; and with manuscript notes in Sir Sydney Cockerell's hand "The text from which the Kelmscott Press edition of 'Utopia' was set up, with pencil directions as to initials etc. in the autograph of William Morris" on the pastedown and "To the Public Library, Chelsea" on front free endpaper. A fascinating insight into the working methods of Morris and the Kelmscott Press. Morris has marked up the text indicating the borders to be used ("vine" crossed out and replaced with numbers "6" and "2", 4 and 2 used in the final version) and where to include 3-line or larger initials (for example a "big bloomer" on p. 143), ornaments, shoulder-notes etc. As editor, Ellis has studied the text in more detail and several times makes a note to consult Morris as to spelling or meaning. For instance at the foot of p. 120 he underlines "wonders gentilly" and writes in the margin, "refer to Mr. Morris if he would make this 'wondrous'" (it was not changed). The work on this edition apparently began with Cockerell's suggestion on 29 February 1892. The book was printed during July and early August 1893. Morris owned a copy of the second English edition of 1556 but this inexpensive reprint of 1869 was preferred for marking up the text. In the reprint the original printer's name appears at the end as Abraham Veale rather than Vele; in the Kelmscott edition this is rendered as "Weale". Peterson quotes a presentation inscription of the book by Ellis: "I cannot help feeling vexed at my name appearing as Editor opposite a palpable misprint of the first printer's name. I did correct it, but my proof was lost and the misprint left" (Peterson A16 notes). Provenance: (1) William Morris (1834–1896), writer, artist & designer, printer, manufacturer and socialist, owner of the Kelmscott Press; by gift to (2) Robert Proctor (1868–1903), "the great bibliographer", who introduced the revolutionary arrangement of the incunabula in the British and Bodleian libraries by country, city, printer and year, reflecting the spread of printing throughout Europe and thereby advancing the study of early printing. He was a fervent admirer of William Morris and a close friend of Sir Sydney Cockerell; he also designed an elegant Greek typeface. He disappeared while on a walking holiday in the Austrian Alps and was never seen again. Many believed he committed suicide, possibly due to declining eyesight, as the day before he left he completed a list of bequests, the item offered here being one of several gifts to different libraries; by gift to (3) the Public Library, Chelsea, which owned a number of Kelmscott-related items, many of them de-acquisitioned over the past 20 years.

The fourth at the end of the book is an albumen print - a portrait of a young girl. The book is bound in its original green cloth with embossed rules and gilt decoration. Binding is worn and frayed at the edges and corners, stained, and almost detached at the spine (both boards) - some pages are loose.

        Storia dell'antica Torino Julia Augusta Taurinorum scritta sulla fede de' vetusti autori e delle sue iscrizioni e mura da Carlo Promis.

      Dalla Stamperia Reale,, Torino, 1869 - In-8° (245x165mm), pp. XIX, 530, brossura editoriale con etichetta dei Fratelli Bocca di Torino al piatto. Frontespizio in rosso e nero; numerosissime iscrizioni riprodotte nel testo. In fine, 3 grandi tavv. più volte ripiegate incise in litografia da C. Righini: una "Pianta di Torino romana", un'altra pianta con sezioni e particolari delle mura romane e una raffigurazione delle Porte Palatine. Dorso restaurato. Una firma del tempo. Più che discreto esemplare in barbe. Edizione originale, rara, di questa fondamentale storia di Torino all'epoca dei primi insediamenti romani, ricchissima soprattutto di riferimenti all'epigrafia. Così il Promis acclara il metodo seguito nella redazione dell'opera: "Pochissimo podendosi ricavare dagli antichi scrittori ho dovuto ricostruire (la storia antica di Torino) col quasi unico aiuto delle iscrizioni, in numero di 287. Spaziai di preferenza sugli Augustali e loro suddivisioni e specialmente sul fatto de' tanti liberti, che costì abbiamo, censiti nella tribù Palatina. Del console Q. Glizio ebbi la sorte di adunare 14 lapidi. Non volli raccogliere le iscrizioni di Torino, ma servirmene come di documenti storici, condensandovi quanto abbia relazione alla sua antica storia". Scrive Goffredo Bendinelli nella premessa a una riedizione anastatica novecentesca del libro: "L' opera dalla quale conviene prendere le mosse per una ricerca sistematica su Torino Romana è tuttora il classico libro di Carlo Promis, Storia dell'antica Torino. Opera diligente ed acuta, nella quale non soltanto troviamo raccolti tutti i documenti conosciuti fino a quel tempo, ma sono anche antivedute le esigenze della più moderna indagine scientifica. Esaurienti per allora, e bisognevoli oggi di non molte aggiunte, lo studio topografico della città romana, e la documentazione epigrafica corredata da un ampio commento. La storia più remota del paese e dei suoi abitanti, lo studio minuzioso dei documenti archeologici, fanno ivi compagnia a trattazioni erudite ed estese sulla lingua, sui costumi, sulle antichità pubbliche in genere, e perfino sull'antica flora e fauna della regione pedemontana". Il Promis (Torino, 1808-ivi, 1872), storico, architetto (fu autore di alcuni dei progetti per la torinese Piazza Carlo Felice), archeologo, epigrafista e filologo, fu professore di architettura alla Regia Scuola d'Ingegneria di Torino. Lozzi, II, 5413, note (la data per errore al 1859). Manno, II, 6715, 7418, 8739, 9377, 10686, 11140, 11600; III, 12289. Platneriana, p. 388. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        Misunderstood.

      London: Richard Bentley, 1869. - ÒMontgomery's breakthrough was with her third work, Misunderstood (1869), whose preface states (p. v): ÔThe following is not a child's story. It is intended for those who are interested in children.Õ It is the story of Humphrey Duncombe, whose widowed father thinks him naughty and thoughtless, but whose high spirits conceal deep thoughts and yearning for the love of the father and the dead mother. There is just time for the father to appreciate how wrong he has been before the boy's heart-rending death. This book remained in print throughout her life, and her later fiction appeared as Ôby the author of MisunderstoodÕ. A notorious tear-jerker, it invites the reader to identify with the neglected child who makes the grown-ups feel guilty. Such stories, Montgomery made clear in the preface to Thrown together (2 vols., 1872), were not suitable for children to read as she was obliged Ôto side, as it were, with the children against the parentsÕÓ (Oxford DNB). Octavo. vi, 321, [1, ads] pp. Title-page a cancel, with ÒAll rights reservedÓ below the imprint Contemporary diced calf, nicely rebacked in calf, gilt spine with burgundy morocco label, marbled edges. First few leaves foxed. Presentation copy, inscreibed: ÒPussie Hobhouse with Florence MontgomeryÕs love 56 Cadogan Place May 15th 1870.Ó Later ownership signature on front free endpaper. A very good copy. First edition, second issue, with the cancel title, as usual., of the first English work that Vladimir Nabokov recalled hearing read. Nabokov said that the fate of its hero, Humphrey Òused to bring a more specialized lump to oneÕs throat than anything in Dickens or Daudet.Ó OCLC records only the Sadleir copy in North America [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

        Costumes de Suisse

      Lucerne and Dornach (Alsace), respectively: Fortune Aubert; Agence de la Maison Ad. Braun. Scarce collection of photographic costume plates, with no copies located on OCLC. N.d., circa 1869. With 36 mounted photographs of Swiss women in provincial dress and either engaged in prototypical activities are surrounded by the paraphernalia of such activities. In a neat cursive in the lower margin is written the city that the photo was taken, and so each woman shown is in a sense representative, in her dress and activity, of the named place. Adolphe Braun (1812 - 1877) was a French photographer known for floral studies, Parisian street scenes and Alpine landscapes. In 1855 he was awarded a medal at the Exposition Universelle held in Paris that year. Later he created a business that focused on photographic reproductions of important paintings and sculpture, and his company became a leader in that field. While the set of photos contained in this album have faded somewhat, one can not but be impressed with the sharpness of elements in the image. There is a painterliness to the compositions: the women and their dress might be the primary subject, but many of the images also feature floral decoration and Alpine backgrounds.

        Transactions and Proceedings of the New Zealand Institute, 1868-1872

      Wellington: James Hughes, 1869-, 1873. Five volumes, quarto, illustrations and plates, many folding and in colour; a handsome set finely bound in scarlet morocco, gilt, gilt arms on upper boards, all edges gilt. A finely-bound set of the {i Transactions of the New Zealand Institute}: a comprehensive record of the scientific endeavours undertaken in New Zealand in the years 1868-1872. The New Zealand Institute, now known as the Royal Society of New Zealand, evolved from the unification of five regional scientific organisations from Auckland, Wellington, Canterbury, Otago and Westland. Established under an Act of Parliament with a government grant of £500, the Institute provided a coordinated means of scientific communication through its publication of the {i Transactions}. The editor was James Hector, a pioneer explorer, geologist and natural scientist, who held the post of manager of the institute for thirty-five years following its inception. This collection represents the first five years of the institute's proceedings. The scope of the subjects covered is staggering and reflects the vigour and richness of scientific and intellectual life in this small community at the time, which was especially enriched by the participation in rigorous scientific debates by enthusiastic and learned amateurs as well as academics and professionals. As well as every possible scientific field, the {i Transactions} are particularly rich in information about the Maori people. This is a most attractive set of this important publication.
