Planck, Karl Christian:
Leipzig : Fues, 1871. XXIV, 652 S. Einband berieben. Papierbedingt leicht gebräunt. - Planck gehört zu den Philosophen, die sich den zu seiner Zeit aktuellen Strömungen des Positivismus, Materialismus und Darwinismus entgegenstellten. Zwar erkannte er die Leistungen der Naturwissenschaften an, versuchte diese aber in ein System einzugliedern, in dem die menschliche Gesellschaft sich von ethischen Maßstäben leiten lässt und die naturwissenschaftlichen und technischen Fortschritte nicht zu inhumanen Zwecken verwendet werden. Seine Theorien fanden keine Anerkennung durch eine akademische Laufbahn, die er immer angestrebt hatte. Auf der anderen Seite wurde er von seinen Anhängern als politischer Messias gepriesen.

Meyer, Édouard (Text) u. [Pierre] A[rthur] de Montméja (Photogr.).
Paris, H. Lauwereyens 1871. - Albert 1555; Hirschberg/Blodi 1267-68. Erste und einzige Ausgabe dieses weltweit ersten augenchirurgischen Werkes mit photographischen Aufnahmen von Operationen. Diese neu Technologie war zwar in der Herstellung teurer als gestochene Tafeln oder Litographien, lieferte aber auch eine wirklichkeitsgetreuere Darstellung. Lange Zeit gab es in keinem chirurgischen Bereich ein vergleichbares Werk. Die photographischen Aufnahmen zeigen verschiedenen Operationen am Auge (Kystotomie, Sortie de la cataracte, Strabisme, Cantoplastie etc). Da die Photoausrüstung der Zeit noch nicht so ausgereift war, führte man die Operationen an Leichen durch. - Meyer (1838?1902), berühmter Augenarzt in Paris, verheiratet mit der Tochter der Familie Rothschild, deren Ophthalmologe er auch war, studierte in Halle und später in Berlin unter A. von Graefe, wo er 1860 zum Augenarzt promovierte. Dann ließ er sich auf Rat Graefes 1863 in Paris nieder, fast gleichzeitig mit Liebreich und L. Wecker. ?Aber nur E. Meyer besaß das ganze Herz Graefe?s, der ihm folgendes Zeugnis mit auf den Weg gab: ,Ich freue mich, dass E. Meyer durch seine Arbeit sich die Beherrschung aller Zweige der Ophthalmologie angeeignet hat? / Arthur de Montméja, Augenarzt im Pariser `Hospital Saint Louis`, begann 1865 photographische Aufnahmen von Patienten zu machen um einen besseren Austausch mit seinen Kollegen zu ermöglichen. So wurde er zum führenden Verleger im Bereich der Medizinphotographie.

Frz. - Aus dem Müller-Lehning-Nachlass. - (= Bibliothéque Historique). -Fribourg trat 1864 der Internationalen Arbeiter-Assoziation (IAA) bei und war Mitglied in deren Pariser Sektion. Innerhalb der IAA galt er als Anhänger J.P. Proudhons und Verfechter der mutualistischen Tendenz. Als Delegierter nahm er teil an der IAA-Konferenz in London 1865 und am ersten offiziellen IAA-Kongress 1866 in Genf. Fribourg liefert in diesem Band einen Überblick über den Gründungsprozess und die einzelnen Kongresse der IAA bis zum Zeitpunkt der sich zuspitzenden internen Differenzen zwischen den ?autoritären?

WESTPHALEN, F.O.W.H. von:
Berlin (Mittler), 1871. Gr. 8°. XIX, 956 S. + zwei mehrfach gefaltete Übersichskarten im Anhang. HLn der Zeit. Ordnungsgemäß ausgesondertes Bibliotheksexemplar (Stempel, Rückenschild). Deckel mit Kratzspuren, eine Ecke gestaucht, innen nur vereinzelt stockfleckig, insgesamt von guter Erhaltung. EA von allergrößter Seltenheit. Beim Ausbruch des Siebenjährtigen Krieges im August 1756 führte Herzog Ferdinand eine der drei in Sachsen einrückenden Heersäulen der preußischen Armee, besetzte Leipzig und brach am 13. September nach Böhmen auf, wo er in der Schlacht bei Lobositz am 1. Oktober den rechten Flügel befehligte. Bei dem Einrücken in Böhmen im April 1757 führte er die Vorhut und trug viel zum Sieg in der Schlacht bei Prag am 6. Mai bei. Ferdinand wusste die gesunkene Moral seiner Soldaten so zu heben, dass sie fast immer Sieger über das weit stärkere französische Heer blieben. Nachdem er noch im Dezember 1757 den Marschall von Richelieu nach Celle zurückgedrängt hatte, trieb er dessen Nachfolger Graf Clermont im Frühjahr 1758 auf das linke Rheinufer zurück und schlug ihn in der Schlacht bei Krefeld am 23. Juni 1758; 1759 wurde er in der Schlacht bei bergen am 13. April geschlagen, brachte aber am 1. August dem französischen Feldherrn Marquis de Contades in der Schlacht bei Minden eine entscheidende Niederlage bei. Zwar konnte er trotz der siegreichen Schlacht bei Warburg nicht verhindern, dass die Franzosen 1760 Hessen wieder einnahmen; doch hielt er sie im folgenden Jahr durch die ihnen beigebrachte Niederlage bei Vellinghausen am 16. Juli in Schach. Den Feldzug vo … [Click Below for Full Description]

DARWIN, Charles
John Murray, 1871. Green half morocco and cloth boards; excellent condition. First edition, second issue, of Darwin's classic work on comparative anatomy. By comparing the physiological and psychological aspects of man and ape, he fills in what had been merely suggested in the Origin: that man's ancestor, if still alive today, would be classified among the primates and on a lower scale than the apes. The last chapter is an added essay on sexual selection, the superior chances of mating that some individuals of one sex have over their rivals. The essay ends with the famous and often misquoted statement, "Man still bears in his bodily frame the indelible stamp of his lowly origin." "The word 'evolution' occurs, for the first time in any of Darwin's works, on page 2 of the first volume of the first edition" (Freeman, p.129).

Moloch (Colomb, Alphonse-Hector)
Unpag. album containing a total of 42 lithographed political cartoons and caricatures, from a numbered suite of 29 unique and individual images, most images presented in duplicate with some examples featuring hand-coloring and some in the original black-and-white, depicting French military and political figures from the time of the end of the Franco-Prussian War, the siege of Paris, the Paris Commune, and the Armistice of Versailles, including Ernest Picard, Gustave Flourens, the Marquis de Galliffet, and Louis Veuillot, together with allegorical figures and other stylized characterizations, each captioned below the image and with Moloch's signature within the plate. Some scattered toning and very minor foxing. Folio. Half-calf with marbled boards. Some abrasions especially along spine. Paris (Chez Deforêt et César/Talons) 1871. Hector Moloch was a French cartoonist and caricaturist who published his works in journals and newspapers such as Chanteclair, La Fronde, L'Éclipse, Le Greot, Le Pêle-mêle, Le Chambard Socialiste, L'Assiette au Beurre, and others. These caricatures are an important historical document from a time of great political and social upheaval in Paris. Very scarce; as of January 2018, WorldCat locates one copy of a similar title in a North American institution, but with what appears to be one copy of each of the caricatures.

Original printed wrappers, spine reinforced with paper, old shelf ticket to spine, old military institutional stamps to cover and title-page; wrappers soiled and shabby, close tear to one leaf, lower wrapper and some maps chipped at corner with slight loss to one map. In fair condition, most uncommon in the original state. ~ First Dutch edition, translated from the French. Very rare. Though well written and comprehensive, the book was not receive with much acclaim. One reviewer was exceptionally harsh: "Ware ons dit boekje niet ter recensie gezonden, wij zouden er zeker geen kennis meê gemaakt hebben. Nu willen wij er alleen van zeggen, dat het noch de kosten van het drukken, noch de moeite van het lezen waard is. Het is samengeflanst uit de geschriften van twee Belgische militairen, den Kolonel Van de Welde en den Kolonel Lecomte, met aanhechting van een rapport van Maarschalk Bazaine. Wij kunnen er uit leeren, zoo wij het nog niet wisten, dat Frankrijk niet klaar was toen het den oorlog begon. - Alleen de schetskaartjes kunnen van eenigen dienst zijn voor hen, die zich nog eens de veldslagen bij Wörth, bij Gravelotte en bij Sédan voor oogen willen brengen."

Paris, En vente aux Bureau du Père Duchêne et chez tous les libraires, 16 ventôse, an 79-3 prairial an 79 (6 mars - 22 mai 1871). 68 numbers of 8 pages each bound in 1 volume. Large 8vo. Later hard-grained half red morocco, spine with raised bands and gilt lettering, marbled boards, top edge gilt. Del Bo, Comune di Parigi, p. 41; Maillard, pp. 156 ff.; Le Quillec, 1946. All published. Edited by E. Vermersch, A. Humbert and M. Vuillaume. Complete collection of this immensely popular journal, which had a very substantial distribution. - This copy is extra-illustrated: it contains 50 lithographed caricature portraits by Mailly and Ch. Vernier and P. Klenck. The caricatures by Mailly and Vernier are all coloured. Each caricature has as heading "La Commune" and they are numbered 1-50. The Mailly & Vernier caricatures are the numbers 9-16; 22-24; 29-48. The others are by P. Klenck. The Mailly & Vernier caricatures are listed in Berleux, La Caricature Politique en France pendant la Guerre, le Siège de Paris et la Commune (1870-1871), p 132 and the caricatures numbers here are the identical numbers for the Berleux listing; the others by Klenck are listed in the same reference work, pp. 102-105. The Klenck caricatures however have been taken from a larger work and the numbers here do not correspond to that much larger work. It is visible that the numbers of the Klenck caricatures have been manipulated to fit into the sequence 1-50. The size of these caricatures is larger than the Pere-Duchene and hence the volume is much larger than the usual Pere-Duchene found.

Darwin Charles
dalla Società l'Unione Tipografico Editrice. In-4° (265x177mm), pp. 672, legatura del tempo m. pelle nera e angoli con titolo e fregi in oro su dorso a falsi bervi. 76 figure xilografiche n.t. Ampio indice finale. Una dedica manoscritta del tempo. Ottimo stato. Prima edizione della prima traduzione italiana, contemporanea all'originale inglese, dovuta al famoso naturalista Michele Lessona ed autorizzata dallo stesso Darwin, di una delle opere capitali del grande scienziato inglese e dell'intera storia della scienza, "The Descent of Man and Selection in Relation to Sex" (1871). Nel libro Darwin sostenne rivoluzionariamente l'origine dell'uomo da uno simiade a sua volta remotamente disceso da un animale acquatico che doveva essere molto simile all'ascidia. La differenza d'intelligenza tra l'uomo e le specie animali meno organizzate da cui discende non è se non quantitativa e di grado, ed è essa stessa un prodotto dell'evoluzione, così come lo sono i sentimenti morali, istintualmente presenti in tutti gli animali. Analizzando inoltre i principi della selezione sessuale, Darwin conclude, con evidente matrice malthusiana, che gli individui più poveri e disadattati dovrebbero astenersi dal matrimonio e dalla procreazione, che spetterebbero esclusivamente ai più favoriti, conferendo così valore scientifico e morale alla lotta per la vita e alle differenze di classe. "In the Origin Darwin had avoided discussing the place occupied by Homo sapiens in the scheme of natural selection, stating only that "light will be thrown on the origin of man and his history." Twelve years later he m … [Click Below for Full Description]

Fawcett, Milicent Garrett
[n.p.]: Printed for the Bristol & West of England Society of Women's Suffrage by the Tavistock Printing Company, 1871. First edition. Disbound and stitched at the spine; front wrapper partially detached with small paper loss to upper left corner not affecting text. Internally clean and complete, with all 23 pages unmarked and bright. A Near Fine copy of this exceptionally rare pamphlet, which does not appear in modern auction records or at any institutions according to OCLC. A suffragist rather than a more militant suffragette, Dame Millicent Fawcett employed dispassionate, rational arguments to make a case for women's rights. The lecture recorded in this pamphlet is a prime example of her methods, as the Electoral Disabilities of Women sets out and deconstructs seven common arguments against women's enfranchisement. Drawing on the philosophy of John Stuart Mill and Erasmus Darwin, Fawcett calls for logical consistency in Britain's application of disability laws, asserting that if concerns about women's intellect, emotion, or education levels are what bar them from civic participation, those same concerns must shape when and how men gain the right to vote.
