Er setzte aber seinen klinischen Unterricht an der Salpêtrière fort. 1882 wurde auf Anregung von Gambetta ein klinischer Lehrstuhl für die Nervenkrankheiten für ihn geschaffen. Damit wurde der Unterricht in der Neurologie zum erstenmal in der Geschichte der Medizin von dem in den anderen Fachgebieten abgetrennt. Der Unterricht Charcots war besonders glänzend und hat eine große Menge von Ärzten aus Frankreich und anderen Ländern an die Salpêtrière gezogen. Mehrere Neurologen, die später selbst bedeutende Lehrer wurden, waren seine Schüler an der Salpêtrière. Neben der Hauptvorlesung am Freitag Vormittag, in der er die stationären Kranken vorstellte, führte er auch die 'Dienstagsvorlesungen' ein, in denen er den Studenten die Kranken vorstellte, die am gleichen Tage in die Poliklinik (Consultation externe) gekommen waren."

Oblong 8vo (6 x 8 inches0. Fine. 104 numbered leaves; written in in on folded sheets, with text on right-hand side, notes and corrections on left. With numerous corrections and deletions. 1 vols. Oblong 8vo (6 x 8 inches0. A very early and well-written analysis by an amateur historian*, shortly afer the cessation of hostilities.The author begins: "It is but a few months since Europe saw the end of a struggle of which history affords so example. There have been fiercer battles fought, larger territories involved in the conflict, but never was there witnessed a more futile pretext for war, blind imprudence in the aggressor, or more consummate generalship & complete success on the opposite side ..."*Possibly by an American, given references to Abraham Lincoln, the American Revolution, "the freest nation in the world", etc). A good candidatate might possibly be Henry Percy Litchfield (see OCLC 10644238), of Long Island, whose papers are in George Washington U with the Litchfield family papers, and whose privately printed book THE FRANCO-GERMAN WAR OF 1870 (Gracehill, Brooklyn, L.I., 1872) was among the earliest studies of the war.

        Modern Turkey.

      London: Hurst and Blackett, Publishers, 1872 - Octavo (220 × 132 mm). Original red-brown cloth, gilt-lettered spine, sides decoratively panel-stamped in blind, yellow surface-paper endpapers. Spine darkened and a little marked, a few pale spots to fore edge, half-title lightly foxed, and discreetly tape-repaired at foot, shallow chip to top edge of front free endpaper, contents otherwise clean, a very good copy. Second edition, the same year as the first, of this valuable survey of Turkey in the mid-19th century, including a wide-ranging economic overview, and accounts of Empress Eugénie's visit to Constantinople and the health benefits of living in Syria. Both editions are uncommon, especially in good condition, and there appear to have been no further printings after 1872. Farley (1823–1855) helped establish the Beirut branch of the British-run Ottoman Bank, established after the conclusion of the Crimean War. "In 1860 [he] was appointed accountant-general of the state bank of Turkey at Constantinople, which subsequently became merged in the Imperial Ottoman Bank, which was set up in 1863 with British, French, and Ottoman shareholders and directors, under the protection of the sultan and his government. It was the government bank with sole rights of note issue. British and French government involvement was also considerable, and the bank was a political as much as a financial institution" (ODNB). He was notably on intimate terms with Fuad and Ali pashas. From 1870 to 1884 he served as Ottoman consul at Bristol, in which capacity he is credited on the title page, and made substantial (though not overly successful) attempts at increasing Bristol's trade with the Levant.

        ARABESQUES: MONARE. DOMITIA. APOLLYONA. OMBRA

      Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1872.. Octavo, pp. [1-8] [1-3] 4-213 [214: blank] [215-216: ads] [note: first leaf is a blank; fly leaves precede first blank and follow page (216)], four illustrations in the text, original bevel-edged green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold and black, t.e.g., brown coated endpapers. First edition. The more elaborate of two bindings, priority, if any, not known. "Literary fables after the manner of the German Romantics, with a melange of Classical, Medieval and Oriental motifs, well-blended. First adventure 'Monare' probably influenced by Fouque's THE MAGIC RING; in one episode young knight slays evil de Maupre, brigand and werewolf, gathers blood in silver flagon to raise his victims from the dead. Other adventures involve witchcraft, visit to the Underworld (a la Tannhauser), magical charms, and a doppelganger." - Robert Knowlton. "Well-sustained, imaginative; among the best late 19th century fantasies." - Bleiler, The Guide to Supernatural Fiction 714. The last tale, "Ombra," involves a variation of the blood motif found in the first. A doppelganger of the hero is magically created, animated by his blood and sent out in front of the hero to draw the enemy. The doppelganger is slain but this allows the hero, in disguise, to enter and wreak his rightful vengeance. Locke, A Spectrum of Fantasy, p. 96. Bleiler (1978), p. 86. Reginald 06336. Wright (II) 1025. Spine ends and corner tips rubbed, a bright, nearly fine copy. A superior copy of a scarce book that does not age gracefully. (#151844)

Octavo, pp. [i-v] vi [vii-viii] [1] 2-166 [167-168: blank] [note: last leaf is a blank], flyleaves at front and rear, original decorated dark green bevel-edged cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold and copper, slate coated endpapers. First edition. "A collection of four short stories, all fantastic, that has been overlooked by fantasy bibliographers. The first, 'The Exile of von Adelestein's Soul,' is the longest and the best. A nobleman accidentally runs down and kills a young crippled boy. His mother puts a curse on him. Subsequently, every night from 8 PM until 8 AM, von Adelstein goes into a cataleptic trance, waking up exhausted. He is slowly dying. The priest of the manor house consults Albertus Nyktalops, or Albert the Bat, who has a reputation of being a wizard -- which is a good thing, since the dead boy's mother has a reputation of being a witch. Working together, the priest and the wizard discover that the witch has reanimated the boy's corpse and is forcing von Adlestein's soul into it at night and forcing it to perform all sorts of degrading labors while lashing its back. While some of the most intriguing aspects of the story are not as developed as they might have been, this has some very interesting ideas. Among other things, it amounts to a psychic detective story. 'Herr Regenbogan's Concert' deals with synaesthesia." - Robert Eldridge. Wright (II) 2573. Front flyleaf missing, a few leaves lightly foxed, else a bright, near fine copy. (#148811)

        London A Pilgrimage [full Morocco Ct 2 Vols]

      London: Grant & Co.. Very Good with no dust jacket. 1872. First Edition. Hardcover. B&W Illustrations; Jerrold was an English journalist and author. , Gustave Dore - "Paul" Gustave Doré was a French artist, engraver, illustrator and sculptor. Doré worked primarily with wood engraving. Width: 12.25" Height: 15.25", 18lbs. Gilt edges. Deluxe binding. "London: A Pilgrimage," with 180 engravings, was published in 1872. It enjoyed commercial and popular success, but the work was disliked by many contemporary critics. Some of these critics were concerned with the fact that Dore appeared to focus on the poverty that existed in parts of London. Dore was accused by The Art Journal of "inventing rather than copying." "The Westminster Review" claimed that "Dore gives us sketches in which the commonest, the vulgarest external features are set down." The book was a financial success, however, and Dore received commissions from other British publishers. Bound in full red leather, with gilt decoration on the covers and spine. Gilt lettering is stamped on two black spine labels. The exteriors exhibit rubbing and edge wear. Full red leather [morocco]. The text blocks are adorned with gilt edges and marbled endpapers. The front board of the second volume is almost detached. The binding of the first volume is sound. The pages exhibit mild aging and scattered faint smudging. This work is richly illustrated by Dore. 180 ill. Woodcuts. 126 vignettes in the text. His night scenes on the Thames, the people, the teeming Docks and some strange streets are the most impressive. "Dore's devastating realization of the contrast of wealth and poverty in a modern metropolis makes London one of the great illustrated books of the world. " Ray. ; 18 .

Covers darkened, light soiling and minor edgewear, small ink spot on front wrapper. Light browning, some chipping and foxing, creasing to corners of most leaves. Contemporary annotations to several leaves and two sheets of laid-in notes in Spanish and English. Rare. * Text of the original concession, issued to Antonio D. Richards, Santiago Smith, and Jose Brennan, facing the altered concession issued to General W. S. Rosecrans. "In 1868 President Johnson appointed Rosecrans to be Minister to Mexico. Five months later, President Grant terminated the appointment. His brief diplomatic career convinced him that a prosperous Mexico would need peace, immigration, and railways, and he applied for a concession to build a narrow-gauge railway and telegraph line from Tampico to the Coast. The record of toil and travel, scheming, waiting on rich men and politicians, and of the final collapse of his Mexican dreams, forms a wearying chapter of the frustrating years from 1869 through 1873. Yet he was almost the first, and perhaps the most important, in a long line of Yankee railroad promoters in Mexico.": Lamers, The Edge of Glory: A Biography of General William S. Rosecrans, U.S.A.

They did not essay the conte cruel, nor go in for paranoid fantasies, such as those of Maupassant. Their tales are simple and straightforward, with all the effects up front. By rights they should have dated severely. The pleasant surprise awaiting those who dig out their tales is that they haven't." - Sullivan (ed), The Penguin Encyclopedia of Horror and the Supernatural, pp. 144-5.

"Forney, a well-known journalist, left Philadelphia on June 12, 1872, and made his way to Texas through Kentucky, Tennessee and Louisiana, stopping at New Orleans and Shreveport in the latter state. His tour of Texas included Marshall, Jefferson, Dallas, Fort Worth, Corsicana, Austin, Houston, Galveston, and San Antonio. He was a keen observer and noted the progress being made in various parts of the South, but pointed out the need of schools, churches, free press, skilled labor, and capital. His chief interest, however, was railroad; and he gave much data on railroad (especially the Texas and Pacific in Texas) their builders, and statistics for Texas and the Southwest. An excellent work." -- Clark New South 77. Herd 822 says "Rare." Extensive coverage of Texas regarding people, towns, climate, agriculture, and resources in general. This is one of the better travel accounts regarding Texas that we have encountered. Lightly wrinkled on front and rear covers, internally clean with great illustrations.

        TAMMANY!! TAMMANY! TAMMANY BUSTED! [caption title]

      [N.p., 1872. Broadside, 27 x 14 inches. Old fold lines. Some wear and loss, affecting three letters. Minor soiling. Printed on yellow paper. Manuscript notations on verso. About very good. Not what it appears to be. The broadside continues: "Professor is Cook-ed! And ready to emigrate. Boss Tweed gone in his hole and trying to pull the hole in after him. Great rejoicing! The mighty have fallen and Napoleon is dead. Honest me now in office! and the Treasury is safe...." Manuscript notes on the verso suggest that this is an elaborate satire on a contentious school board election in rural North McGregor, Clayton County, Iowa. The note reads: "Mondays election the 'Cook party' was 'scooped out' at North McGregor nearly 3 to 1 (Geo. Keene is 'Boss Tweed'). Show this to Prof. Thompson and save it. The fate of teachers who meddle in local fights." The author also lists the vote count. A quote at the bottom of the sheet is dated 1872, giving an approximate date. Quite striking and perhaps unique.

        [Das Kapital, in Russian] Kapital. Kritika politicheskoi ekonomii.

      St. Petersburg: N. P. Poliakov,, 1872. [Translated by Lopatine and Danielson], vol. I. [all published hitherto]. Octavo (240 × 152 mm). Contemporary Russian half calf, marbled paper sides, spine with double gilt rules and lettering in Cyrillic. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Joints, spine ends and corners somewhat rubbed, inner hinges cracked but firm, covers a little scraped and rubbed, free endpapers removed; small marginal stain to the final 200 pages, one or two fore-edges with small losses, final leaf with short closed tear; light spotting and the odd stain, withal a very good copy in a contemporary Russian binding. First edition in Russian, the first foreign translation, of "the Bible of Marxism." This is the first translation to appear in any language, and the impact of it was greatest on the history, society, government, politics, culture, and psyche of that country. Marx had been closely involved in the process of creating an edition for Russian readers, and corresponded often with the translators German Aleksandrovich Lopatin and Nikolai Frantsevich Danielson. Vol. I went to the press in October 1871, Marx returned his proof corrections smartly at the start of November, and the book was finally published on 27 March 1872. The publication of the first volume of Karl Marx's Das Kapital was the result of nearly 25 years of economic studies, mostly in the Reading Room of the British Museum. His biting critique of the capitalist system had developed from his previous publication of Zur Kritik der Politischen Oekonomie (1859). "Nobody before him had so clearly shown the role of the productive agencies in historical evolution; nobody so masterfully exhibited their determining influence on the form and idealogies of social organisms… If he has been justly compared with Darwin, it is in these respects that he ranks with the great genius" (Ency. Brit.) "By an odd quirk of history the first foreign translation of Das Kapital to appear was the Russian, which Petersburgers found in their bookshops early in April 1872. Giving his imprimatur, the censor, one Skuratov, had written, 'few people in Russia will read it, and still fewer will understand it.' He was wrong; the edition of three thousand sold out quickly; and in 1880 Marx was writing to his friend F. A. Sorge that 'our success is still greater in Russia, where Kapital is read and appreciated more than anywhere else'" (PMM). The printing of a second edition was forbidden in Russia and so in 1890 a New York publisher brought out an nearly identical reprint of the first edition: that second edition is distinguished from the first in that the misplaced comma opposite "p. 73" in the table of contents is replaced by a full stop; and the "e" at the end of l. 40, p. 65, is replaced by a "c".

        Photo of Walt Whitman

      Printed by C.F. Spieler, Phila. Framed and glazed. Printed by C.F. Spieler, Phila. In 1872, G. Frank Pearsall opened a studio next door to Pendleton's, at 298 Fulton. Whitman had several photos taken by Pearsall, including the portrait Whitman used as the frontispiece to Two Rivulets, which he labeled "Phot'd from life, Sept., '72, Brooklyn, N.Y., by G.F.E. Pearsall, Fulton St." The left half of this stereoview was used as the frontispiece for Two Rivulets, where it is captioned by Whitman, "Photo'd from life, Sept., '72, Brooklyn, N.Y., by G.F.E. Pearsall, Fulton St." Copies of this photograph were later made by Charles H. Spieler, as here.

        Drops of Water

      New York: The National Temperance Society and Publication House, 1872. First Edition of the Author's First Book. 12mo; 132pp; + 8pp. ads for "Publications of the National Temperence Society"; brick-colored cloth, printed in gold gilt with black decorations, rubbed at all edges, especially corners and spine, soiling to most pages at margins, "Don't Drink" on page 7 with large erasure with loss of 4 or 5 words, good only. Ella Wheeler Wilcox (1850-1919), poet and journalist, wrote her first novel at age 9. By the age of 14, she had successfully submitted some prose sketches to the New York Mercury. She left school to devote her time to her writing, hoping to escape family poverty through her pen. She did attend the University of Wisconsin in 1867. In 1872, she published a collection of temperance poems which won a small audience. Fame, as well as notoriety came in 1883 when a Chicago firm refused to publish her POEMS OF PASSION (although much of the verse therein had previously appeared in journals). Another publisher picked up on the free publicity and publishedthe volume before the year was out. It sold 60,000 copies in the first two years, making Ella Wheeler's reputation. She married Robert Wilcox in 884, and moved to New York shortly thereafter. She produced a syndicated column of prose and poetry which had a large following. She was interested in spiritualism, trying desperately to contact her husband through the spirit world after his death. She reached a broad audience with her verse, penning the lines "Laugh, and the world laughs with you; / Weep, and you weep alone." NAW III, pp. 607-608. Author's First Book.

        DROPS OF WATER: POEMS

      New York: National Temperance Society and Publication House, 1872. 132,[8]pp. Original cloth, decorated in black and gilt, t.e.g. Some light dust spotting/discoloration to cloth, some scattered spotting in text (thumb smudges, offset from old floral specimens and the like), otherwise an uncommonly nice, bright copy of a book prone to flaws. First edition of the poet's first book, acclaimed as a "puerile collection of temperance verse" by Messrs. Papantonio and Kohn. Her next collection, POEMS OF PASSION, connected with a wider audience after having been rejected by at least one publisher as "too hot to handle." One of the poems in that collection ("Solitude") containing the observation, "Laugh, and the world laughs with you; / Weep, and you weep alone ...," had particular resonance and her fame took root. While known to the wider public for both her popular verse and her association with Theosophy, spiritualism, belief in reincarnation and other such passions of the time, Wilcox is best remembered among wits as having been the inspiration of Richard Murdoch's "Ballet Egyptien" parody.
