''This elaborate memoir will be read with great pleasure by all who take an interest in the aborigines of Australia.

        General Karte von Central Europa, bzw. der österr. ung. Monarchie, Maßstab 1:300.000 in 192 Blatt. Herausgegeben vom k. und k. militärischen geografischen Institute in Wien

      1873 - 1876.. Seltene vollständige Ausgabe dieser Erstveröffentlichung. Die Karten, mit dem Mittelpunkt östlich von Wien, reichen im Westen bis Poitiers, im Norden bis Kopenhagen, im Osten bis Odessa und im Süden bis Rom, einschliesslich in die Regionen Griechenlands und Türkei. Durch die vergrößerte Darstellung gegenüber der Schedaschen Karte galt die Arbeit am Ende in den Punkten Übersicht und Klarheit dieser als etwas unterlegen. Das Werk wurde 1876 vollendet und, obwohl unermüdlich verbessert, danach allmählich aus dem Verkehr gezogen. Die spätere kleine Ergänzung bzw. Erweiterung ab 1877 umfasste daher nur wenige Blätter, z.B. die Balkanhalbinsel. Am Ende zählte das Werk im Umfang 207 Blatt. - Folgende Karten in den Bänden: I. Band A.1. Manchester. - B.2.

      1873. Very Good. Japan's Telegraphic SystemAyrton, William Edward (1847-1908). A.L.s. to Latimer Clark. Tokyo, March 2, n.y. [between 1873 and 1878]. 7pp. 155 x 101 mm. Provenance: Latimer Clark.Ayrton, a pupil of Sir William Thomson (later Lord Kelvin), was a noted physicist, electrical engineer, inventor, and technical educator; his wife was the physicist Hertha Ayrton, best known for her investigations of the electric arc and of sand ripples. For five years Ayrton served as professor of physics and telegraphy at the Imperial Engineering College in Tokyo, Japan (at one time the world's largest technical university), where he established the first laboratory in Japan for teaching applied electricity. During his time in Japan Ayrton performed an enormous amount of experimental research, some of which is mentioned in detail in his letter to Clark. The letter concludes by referring to the disturbances to Japan's telegraphic system caused by "the revolution which exists in the South," i.e., one of the many Samurai revolts occasioned by the rise of the centralized Meiji government in 1868. Upon his return to England, Ayrton served for some time as Clark's scientific advisor. Origins of Cyberspace 113.

      Small octavo. One page. A letter dated 11 February 1873 from Bladon Springs, Alabama to "Mrs. Walker," a white woman, warning her that her property is about to be sold. In full: "Feb. 11, 1873 / Bladen Springs / Mrs. Walker. I understand that your lot, leading from Bladon to Cullum Spring, on the road known as the Iron Spring lot, is to be sold the first Monday in March at the court house down in Butler. I thought you did not know it, and I thought it my duty to write to you about it. We are all well and geting [sic] along very well. Your colored friend, Hannah Walker." It is conceivable, considering their identical surnames, that Hannah may have been freed from Mrs. Walker or her family, but still felt some friendship or other obligation to her. .

      Edward Stanford, London 1873 - Inscribed and Rare. a day by day account of a difficult trip upriver to the falls. one of the things this book points up was the difficulty the photographer had. the weight of the equipment as well as the complications of setups in the field. traveling upriver by a small flotilla of small boats and the need for constant portages to get around falls and rapids. and the fact that one of the boats used had the name "ungrateful wretch" gave the story a slightly zany touch. this copy inscribed by the author. map very good.

        Printed, leather-bound volume of the bill H.R. 3921, Sundry Civil Bill, with amendments reported by James A. Garfield, Chairman of the Appropriations Committee. His own copy

      "The first Presidential memorial library, completed at the Lawnfield estate in Ohio by the widow of James Garfield four years after his assassination, houses almost 3,000 books that were used and treasured by the 20th president. Books were a scarce commodity to young James, who lost his father before the age of two, and was raised by his mother who struggled to maintain a humble existence. Both James Garfield and his wife Lucretia were voracious readers and amassed a large collection of books. Some twenty years ago, several dozen of his books were de-accessioned, and one of these books is described below:Sundry Civil Bill, 1873-1874, bound copy of bill H.R. 3921, with amendments, from the Committee on Appropriations, 42d Congress, 3d Session, reported [by] Mr. James A. Garfield, February 11, 1873. Half leather with four raised bands on spine and titles stamped in gilt, marbled boards, end papers and page block. No title page or publisher stated. Approximately 235 pps, 4to. Affixed to the first page of the bill on plain paper in unknown hand, ?Hon. J. A. Garfield / Sundry Civil Bill / 1873-74."" Shelf wear to leather, interior is lightly soiled and toned, else near fine condition. Garfield was a talented parliamentarian, a hard worker, and a skilled negotiator in Congress. He became Chairman of the Appropriations Committee in 1871, a position he would hold for the next four years. It is generally agreed that his work on the committee made a real contribution to improving the management of the U.S. government. When James G. Blaine advanced to the Senate in 1876, Garfield succeeded him as leader of the House Republicans. Garfield was very successful in the House, but his time there was not entirely without controversy. Garfield was one of more than thirty representatives alleged to have been sold stock by Credit Mobilier of America, a company associated with the Union Pacific Railroad, at less than its value to influence legislation affecting the railroad. Garfield claimed to have been given a loan from the company in the amount of $300 in June 1868, not stock, which he paid back in the winter of 1869. No receipt, certificate or dividend was ever uncovered, and thus Garfield was not politically ruined long term."

        Circus Pallidus (Pallid Harrier)

      London 1873 - John Gould (1804-1881) was an English ornithologist, self-taught artist and naturalist. Gould first worked as a gardener under his father in the Royal Gardens of Windsor from 1818-1824, where he began his illustrations. He became an expert taxidermist, opening his own practice in London in 1824 and in 1827 he became the first Curator and Preserver at the museum of the Zoological Society of London. Through his work he was able to meet with the country’s leading naturalists and view new collections of birds given to the Zoological Society. His interest in birds was continually developing and in 1830 he published his first volume on birds, “A Century of Birds From the Himalaya Mountains.” For the next fifty years, Gould, his wife and artists working with them traveled around Asia, the East Indies and Australia. His wife Elizabeth and other artists were able to transfer his sketches to stone; hand print and hand-color them. One of the most accomplished and engaging natural history works of the 19th century, “The Birds of Europe” was also the first of Gould's works to feature plates by Edward Lear. A total of sixty-eight images bear Lear's name, and they are among the most remarkable bird drawings ever made. Lear endowed his illustrations with some measure of his own whimsy and intelligence, and his style is at once fluidly spontaneous and realistically precise. In this way, the images of “The Birds of Europe” are amazingly distinctive, while also highly realistic. Gould undertook this work partly in an effort to redress the imbalance between the study of local and foreign ornithology. Gould portrayed birds native to Europe in a manner that had only been thought appropriate for the colorful species of distant places. In this way he managed to draw much popular interest back to native birds, which were suddenly considered equally beautiful to exotic species. This hand-colored lithograph, Circus Pallidus, measures 21.5” x 14.75” and is in excellent condition with few small foxing marks in the right margin. Commonly called the Pallid Harrier, this migratory bird of prey is expertly hand-colored and extremely well detailed. This male is colored in a brilliant white with black specks on its underbelly, and gray wings with black wingtips. The precise lines define and detail each feather and wing and add definition to the body.

        Die normale Resorption des Knochengewebes und ihre Bedeutung für die Entstehung der typischen Knochenformen

      Leipzig: F. C. W. Vogel. 1873. "First edition, 4to, pp. vi, 86; 8 colored lithograph plates of bones (the first 2 a touch foxed), 2 figures and 13 tables in the text; contemporary black morocco-backed marbled boards, red morocco spine label a bit abraded; very good. With a number of contemporary German annotations in pencil, and the small ownership mark of Dr. F. Meischer-Rusch, professor of physiology at Basel at the top of the front free endpaper and title page. Kölliker (1817-1905) was the professor of anatomy at Wursburg where he made important strides in the understanding of human and animal tissue. His Handbuch de Gewebelehre des Menschen (1852) was the first text book of histology. Charles Sedgwick Minot (1852-1914) said that Kölliker ""knew more by direct personal observation of the microscopic structure of animals than anyone else who has ever lived"" (Garrison, An Introduction to the History of Medicine, p. 462). In this work, Kölliker took up the study of the process involved in the absorption of bone. He identified the large multinucleated cells that are active in osseous absorption and removal and named them 'osteoclasts.' Both human and animal bones are analyzed."

        Über progressive Muskelatrophie, über wahre und falsche Muskelhypertrophie.

      . Berlin, Verlag August von Hirschwald, 1873, 8°, X, 383 pp., 11 lith. Taf., Pappband im Stil der Zeit mit altem Rüchenschild; Text sauber, die Tafeln etwas fleckig.. Nikolaus Friedreich (1825-1882) "had been both a pathologist and an internist at the University of Würzburg where he briefly succeeded Rudolph Virchow as professor of pathology after the latter had become Professor of Pathology at the Charite in Berlin. Friedreich was academic head of the department of internal medicine at Heidelberg University for 23 years, commencing at the age of 32 years. He was both a neurologist and cardiologist. Neurology, at that time, was not a separate specialty, but either part of psychiatry or internal medicine. He extensively wrote on hereditary spinocerebellar degeneration and ataxia, but also on PMA and true and spurious muscle hypertrophy. He suggested that PMA was not of spinal origin but represented a primary muscle disease, any lesions in spinal cord being secondary to ascending inflammation N. Friedreich, Über progressive Muskelatrophie, über wahre und falsche Muskelhypertrophie, Hirschwald RM, Berlin (1873) and R. Virchow, Zur Erinnerung an Nikolaus Friedreich, Arch Pathol Anat 90 (1882), pp. 213-220. Such an opinion was understandable because sectioning of peripheral nerves, already known at that time, not only produces Wallerian degeneration, but also retrograde reaction in respective neuronal perikarya. Friedreich's view indicated that PMA was not at first considered to be of spinal origin, but in certain patients may primarily develop in the skeletal muscle. Of course, Meryon had already studied postmortem tissues of his patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy and firmly stated the primary lesion being in the muscle while '[.] in the spinal cord and nerves connected within [.] not the slightest trace of disease was detected'. In order to further corroborate primary pathology in PMA less required biopsy studies but rather full autopsies allowing histological examination of the spinal cord, the spinal roots and the peripheral nerves. As a further step in elucidating PMA, not only a condition independent of spinal cord injury or neural origin, but also several such forms were proposed." Hans H.

Signed by H. Beauard, J.C. Aitkins, Joseph Howe and Lord Dufferin.Lord Dufferin, (1826-1902) In 1872 became Canada's third Governor General of Canada in 1872. His six-year tenure (1872- 1878) was a period of rapid change in Canadian history. During his term, Prince Edward Island was admitted to Confederation, and several well-known Canadian institutions, such as the Supreme Court of Canada, the Royal Military College of Canada, and the Intercolonial Railway, were established. He was at ease speaking with a wide variety of people, both in English and French, and became known for his charm and hospitality. He visited every Canadian province, and was the first Governor General to visit Manitoba. In 1873, the Pacific scandal arose when the Conservative government of John A. Macdonald was accused by the Liberal opposition of financial impropriety in relation to the construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway. Dufferin prorogued parliament, and established an enquiry which found against the Government, and Macdonald fell from power.In 1873 Dufferin established the Governor General's Academic Medals for superior academic achievement by Canadian students. These medals are the most prestigious that school students can be awarded, and several sporting prizes, including the Governor General's Match for shooting, and the Governor General's Curling Trophy. In 1873 he also signed this Land Grant document.Joseph Howe (1804-1873) He a leading proponent of representative government, Joseph Howe. He was born at Halifax in 1804 lived long enough to see Nova Scotia enter Confederation, a transition which he bitterly, but futilely, opposed. He was a newspaperman and a politician. Considered by many to be the greatest Nova Scotian. Nova Scotia had become the first colony to achieve responsible government, and Howe boasted it had been done without "a blow struck or a pane of glass broken." 1869 he entered the dominion cabinet as president of the council. He signed this 1873 (the year he died) document as Secretary of State for the Provinces and Superintendent General of Indian Affairs from 1869 to 1873.Hewitt Bernard (1825-1893) Born in Jamaica, Bernard immigrated to Canada and settled in Barrie, where in 1856 he established a law practice. He was chief clerk, 1858-66, in the office of the attorney-general for Canada West, John A. MacDonald, and later became his brother-in-law (Susan Agnes MacDonald [née Bernard]). Bernard accompanied MacDonald to the Charlottetown Conference (1864) and was the secretary of the Quebec (1864) and London (1866-67) Conferences, at which the groundwork was laid for Confederation. A Lieutenant-Colonel in the militia, he served as aide-de-camp to two governors-general, Viscount Monck and Baron Stanley of Preston. He also served as deputy minister of justice, 1868-76. Bernard died at Montreal in 1893 and is buried at Ottawa. James Cox Aitkins (1823-1904) He born in Toronto becoming a prominent Canadian politician in the 19th century. He was the Secretary of State for Canada twice: from 1867-1869 and again from 1878-1880 in the government of Sir John A. Macdonald. In 1882 he became the fourth Lieutenant-Governor of Manitoba and Keewatin, a term which expired in 1888.
