        Experimental researches in cerebral physiology and pathology In "The West Riding Lunatic Asylum Medical Reports," Vol III

      London: Smith, Elder, 1873. Ferrier, David (1843-1928). Experimental researches in cerebral physiology and pathology. In The West Riding Lunatic Asylum Medical Reports 3 (1873): 30-96. Whole volume. vi, 349pp. Text illustrations. London: Smith, Elder, 1873. 215 x 136 mm. Quarter morocco, marbled boards ca. 1873, top edge gilt, light edgewear. Light toning but very good. Clipped signature of David Ferrier, dated 1896, tipped to front flyleaf. First Edition of Ferrier?s groundbreaking first publication on the localization of cerebral function, which made his fame as an experimental neurologist. Extremely rare on the market, with no auction records going back to the nineteenth century. In the 1860s the great British neurologist John Hughlings Jackson had suggested that bodily functions could be mapped in an organized fashion onto the cerebral cortex. Jackson?s suggestion, based solely on clinical observations, was supported by experiments on dogs conducted by German physiologists Eduard Hitzig and Gustav Fritsch, who published their research in 1870. Wanting to confirm and extend the work of Hitzig and Fritsch, Ferrier, who was then working as a neurologist in London?s National Hospital for Paralysis and Epilepsy, undertook a program of experimental research at the West Riding Lunatic Asylum, an institution headed by his friend Sir James Crichton-Browne. Over the spring and summer of 1873, Ferrier obtained experimental results demonstrating that various neurologic functions were controlled by separate parts of the cerebrum and that damage or loss of that part created an irrevocable and particular deficit. He showed that these areas were much more discrete as one ascended the phylogenetic scale and accordingly effects of brain damage in rabbits, dogs and cats etc. could not be compared to those in monkeys, apes and human beings. ?[Ferrier] mapped much of the cerebral cortex and carefully delineated the ?motor-region,? as he termed it; the scheme of localized function that he put forward was based on the concept of ?motor? and ?sensory? regions. Like Fritsch and Hitzig, Ferrier carried out ablations of local areas of cerebral cortex as well as [electrical] stimulation and observed the resulting functional deficit. Jackson?s concept of ?discharging? and ?destroying? lesions was therefore reproduced experimentally and his theories put to the test. As far as the primates were concerned, they were shown to be correct? (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). Clarke & O?Mally, The Human Brain and Spinal Cord, pp. 513-14.

        Mikrogeologische Studien über das kleinste Leben der Meeres-Tiefgründe aller Zonen und dessen geologischen Einfluss. [AND] Fortsetzung der mikrogeologischen Studien als Gesammt-Uebersicht der mikroskopischen Paläontologie gleichartig analysirter Gebirgsarten der Erde, mit specieller Rücksicht auf den Polycystinen-Mergel von Barbados.

      Berlin, Königlichen Akademie der Wissenschaften zu Berlin, G. Vogt, 1873-1875. Two parts in two. 4to (27.5 x 22.2 cm). 496 [131-399; 1-226] pp., 42 [I-XII; I-XXX] partly tinted lithographed plates, and one coloured folded world-map, six large, folded tables. Original printed boards and matching later boards.l This is a rare complete set of the "Studien" both published in the academy's Abhandlungen. Together, it forms an important contribution to the start of micropalaeontology, in particular the study of the sea bottom. It is more or less a continuation of Ehrenberg's famous "Mikrogeologie" and deals mainly with the of the skeletons of "lower" organisms such as diatoms, and Foraminifera. The illustrations are excellent, those in the first (1873) part are partly coloured or tinted. The second part contains a "Nachtrag", covering pp. 169-226. Nissen only quotes the famous Mikrogeology but not these Mikrogeologische Studien. Some foxing to the tables and plates of the second part. A few japanese paper repairs to some text leaves of the first part, otherwise a good set. Nissen ZBI, 1245; Zittel p. 326.

        Exposicion que hase [sic] el Canton provincia de Porto-viejo, de los motivos legales y políticos que há tenido para declararse unanimente incorporada a la Republica de Colombia segun la ley fundamental del estado dictada por el Congreso general, y sancionada por el voto de los pueblos.Lima, San Jacinto, [1822]. 4to. Side stitched.

      - Biblioteca de ex-coronel Pineda, vol. II (1873), p. 158; Dueñas de Anhalzer, "Marqueses, cacaoteros, y vecinos de Portoviejo", p. 289; WorldCat (2 copies); not in Medina; Palau; Sabin. Very rare pamphlet, printed in Lima, proclaiming the decision of the Canton of Portoviejo (in modern Ecuador) to join the Republic of Greater Colombia. The text was presumably written by the priest and revolutionary Cayetano Ramírez y Fita (1776-1854) and adapted in December 1821. Since the text was printed in Lima and refutations of the text appeared in a Guayaquil newspaper between May and June 1822, it is likely that the pamphlet appeared at the beginning of 1822.As part of the Spanish colonies in South-America, Portoviejo had been an important centre for conquistadors. In October 1820, as the Spanish empire in South-America was disintegrating, Portoviejo joined the other cities in the region of Guayaquil in declaring independence. The future of the region was uncertain as president Simón Bolívar of Colombia considered the region to be part of his state, while a number of movements in Guayaquil advocated joining the Republic of Peru. Portoviejo opposed to the rest of Guayaquil when in December 1821 its "cabildo" (administrative council) declared the canton to be part of the Republic of Colombia. Bolivár annexed the rest of the Province of Guayaquil in July 1822.With library stamps. Some small waterstains in the inner margins and a large waterstain at the head. Some small tears and folds near the edges and the title-page and last pages somewhat soiled; otherwise in good condition, edges untrimmed.

        Les institutions sanitaires pendant le conflit Austro-Prussien-Italien

      Paris: G. Masson, 1873. [16], 188pp. Paris: G. Masson, 1873. 227 x 146 mm. Original printed wrappers (brittle), chipped with loss. Fore-edges a little dust-soiled and frayed. Fifth edition, originally published in 1867. Preserved in a protective case. THE ANCESTOR OF THE AMERICAN RED CROSS. Scarce: ours is apparently the only copy currently on the market. Evans (1823-1897), an American dentist, settled in France in the late 1840s where he enjoyed an extraordinary success, numbering Napoleon III and members of other important European royal families among his patients, and amassing a large personal fortune. Through his connections with the politically powerful Evans became interested in diplomacy and international philanthropy: during the Crimean, Austro-Prussian-Italian and Franco-Prussian wars he financed the establishment of ambulance corps and other relief facilities for the wounded, and during the American Civil War he founded the U.S. Sanitary Commission at Philadelphia, the ancestor of the American Red Cross. The present work documents these services; it also includes an essay on ambulance wagons and a catalogue of Evans' collection of materials used by the U.S. Sanitary Commission. Dr. Evans devoted enormous energies to enriching the great European movement for civilian assistance to wounded soldiers with the practical experience of American volunteers on the battlefields of the Civil War. Evans, along with Henry Dunant, had witnessed the sufferings of the innumerable wounded of the battle of Solferino. He joined with the European elite (many of them his clients) in promoting the International Societies for Assistance to Wounded Soldiers, launched by Dunant and recognized by the Geneva Convention of 1864. In a book he published in French in Paris in 1866, Evans described the activities of the Sanitary Commission, which had come to the aid of the wounded of the Civil War (1861-1865). Evans published other books on the theme of the care of wounded soldiers, while more concretely drawing the attention of Europeans to the fruits of the American experience through the presentation of his personal collection of American first aid materiel in a pavilion at Paris' World Fair of 1867. Three years later, Evans put his collection to work during the Siege of Paris, outfitting a complete tent hospital, the American Ambulance at this time, the term ambulance referred to an "ambulatory" or field hospital set up in tents, barracks or other buildings taken over for this use pitched on a vacant lot a few hundred yards downhill from the Arch of Triumph. The American Ambulance was staffed by volunteers, its doctors, experienced veterans of the Civil War, and its non-medical personnel composed of members of the Colony. It was in this ambulance that many French first became aware of the efficiency of American "volunteer" action.

With engraved title-page and 48 engraved leaves by Guillaume de Gheyn, J. Collin, and J. Durant. Later 17th-century French red morocco, elaborately gold-tooled with pointillé tools in a panel design with 2 roll borders and hundreds of impression of numerous tools, the 6 spine compartments gold-tooled, gilt edges.

First edition of a wholly engraved prayer book. The first part depicts moments in the celebration of the Holy Mass with scenes from the life of Christ, with on the opposite pages prayers in Latin and French adorned with portraits of saints and small flowers, insects and birds, followed by a Litany of the Holy Name of Jesus, and a Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary, both with a portrait. The last part includes 7 psalms illustrated with scenes from the life of David, preceded by a portrait of David surrounded by events from his life with "Histoire de David" on a banderol. The binding is a fine example of French "pointillé" tooling. This luxurious style of finishing, consisting of dotted lines and curves, was introduced in France in the third decade of the 17th century and was used by many masterly gilders, the most famous of whom was known as "Le Gascon", a mysterious binder whose identity remains obscure.The present copy comes from the library of the 19th-century collector Henry Perkins, whose collection "was in certain respects the most valuable ever brought together" (Quaritch). The library was sold at auction in 1873.With the armorial bookplate of Willes Nevin on front pastedown and owner's inscriptions of Henry Perkins, Willis Nevin ("July 1873 / Bought from Pickering who bought it at the Perkins sale of books"), and Ernest Geldart ("1877"). Name below the dedication struck through. Spine and board edges skilfully repaired (possibly to obscure the removal of 2 clasps). A very good copy in a luxurious binding. [Attributes: First Edition]

Original blind-tooled cloth, with gilt title on the front board. Floral-patterned endpapers.l An extremely rare and fine monograph on Belgian pears (the title plainly meaning "Our pears"), describing no less than 431 different types of pears, including 234 different specimens of pears illustrated on 22 full colour plates, and six black and white (outline) plates, each with six images. The author was Louis Benoît Van Houtte (1810-1876). "If the nineteenth century Ghent florists had an icon, it was undoubtedly Louis Van Houtte. He traded a job at the Ministry of Finance for that of a botanist and florist. He opened a shop in Brussels, went on botanical expedition to the Brazilian jungle, was briefly director of the Brussels Botanical Garden and finally settled in Gentbrugge, where he specialized in ornamental horticulture. He was the first to bring to Europe the famous giant water lily, Victoria regina, for which he built a special greenhouse which attracted many visitors. Van Houtte was also politically active, and from 1854 until his death he was mayor of Gentbrugge. As a liberal, he also devoted much attention to the establishment of the municipal education and had built two schools. His legacy includes the famous magazine, 'L'Horticulture Belge' and the 23 volumes of the 'Flore des Serres et des Jardins de l'Europe' published between 1845 and 1883" (after B. D'Hondt, 2014). This fine pear-publication, however, is little known and must be very rare. It includes images of pear types now long forgotten, but also some pears that are still commercially successful. Some light shelfwear, spine foot frayed, private owner's stamp of P. Fenterer van Vlissingen, and earlier autograph (partly erased) in the title page top margin, otherwise a very good, clean copy. Very rare. OCLC reports only two copies, both in European libraries. Not in Nissen BBI, Raphael (An Oak Spring Pomona), or Stafleu & Cowan.

        Catalogue des livres anciens reliés en maroquin avec armoiries choisis par feu M. de Ribeyre; Accompanied by 13 autograph letters (1864-1869)

      Adolphe Labitte, Paris 1873 - 8vo. 16 pp. Original wrappers. Catalog describing 105 lots from Ribeyre's library. Accompanied by 13 autograph letters (1864-1869), 50 pp.The bibliophilic correspondence of the Marquis de Ribeyre, written to an unidentified recipient toward the last years of his life, mentioning contemporary book sales with comments on those collections, his personal reading, his research and discoveries in archeology and other subjects, his travel, leisure and daily life in 19th century Paris, and his book collecting. Three letters carry a blind stamp with his arms (they have been cut out on a fourth).Included here is the rare sale catalog of his library, Catalogue des livres anciens reliés en maroquin avec armoiries choisis par feu M. de Ribeyre (1872). Only the copy at the Grolier Club has been located; the title is absent from the catalog of the BnF. Also included are a curious assortment of documents that suggest a close connection to Ribeyre: extracts of a translation of Lucian’s La Pharsale in two versions, one by [Ribeyre or his correspondent?] and the other a transcription of the 1865 Paris edition by Garnier frères. More interesting are two pages of notes on the prices realized at the sale of Ribeyre’s paintings, sold in 1872. The notes corresponding to: Catalogue des tableaux anciens importants des ecoles francaise, flamande et italienne composant la collection de feu M. le marquis de Ribeyre. / [expert] Emile Barre. Finally, there are 5 pp. of notes that appear to trace the genealogy of the Marquis de Ribeyre de Villemont, as he is referred to on the title page of his monograph Origines, Migrations et Etablissements des Differentes Races qui ont peuple l' Europe. Dentu: Paris, 1856. The genealogical notes trace Ribeyre’s ancestors to the 16th century and include the date and place of his marriage. The correspondence: 13 ALS, 50 pp.All the letters are addressed to "Mon cher ami", thus a male correspondent who it seems resides at least part of the time in Loisail (letters of 13 and 28 Oct 1864) about 100 miles southwest of Paris. The two correspondents share an acquaintance with M. and Mme Lorenzo (13 and 22 Oct 1864) and an interest in book collecting. In the course of his correspondence, especially in an undated letter of 1865, the bibliophile Ribeyre mentions the contemporary library sales of James-Alexandre de Pourtalès, Alexandre Dumas fils, Chedeau de Saumur, Potier, Joseph Techener, Montmerqué, and Arthur Dinaux. At the latter sale Ribeyre reports experiencing a "bout de bibliomanie", inspired by a sale in which the books were not expensive and the variety of the books and engravings was unique (22 Oct 1864). In the same letter Riberye discusses his thoughts on Sainte Beuve’s Port Royal from which he quotes at length. The Marquis de Ribeyre wrote with humor and irony. On October 22, 1864, he sent word to his friend: "Paris est bruyant, Paris est sâle, Paris est ennuyeux ; une grande ménagerie de bêtes curieuses qui se regardent sans se connaître [.] à bientôt dans la menagerie" [Paris is noisy, Paris is dirty, Paris is tiresome; A great menagerie of curious beasts who look at each other without recognition [.] See you soon in the menagerie].Another of Ribeyre’s interests in these letters is archeology. In the letter of 5 Dec 1869 he discusses the discovery of "M. le Dr. Gosse" in Geneva, providing a lengthy quotation from Le Journal de Geneve. In another letter, (n.d.), he reports the discovery of a rare pamphlet, Inscriptions antiques de Nice, de Cimiez et de quelques lieux environnants, recueillies et annotées par M.F. Bourquelot (Paris: Crapelet, 1850), in which the Roman ruins at Cimiez are discussed. While traveling in Bastia, Ribeyre gives a vivid view of the world outside of his comfortable and familiar Paris: "Voilà le stimulus qui m'a fait quitter mes livres, mes habitudes de collecteur et les aises d'un petit intérieur ." [This is the stimulus that made me leave my books, my habits of collector and the ease of a smal [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        O zasadzie uzytecznósci (Utilitarianizm). Przeklad z angielskiego upowazniony przez autora.

      Warsaw: Przeglad Tygodniowy,, 1873. Duodecimo (137 x 100 mm), pp. 132. Bound with 3 other works in contemporary roan-backed pebbled cloth, spine ruled and lettered in black. Ownership initials M. D. stamped at foot of spine. Last 2 leaves bound in twice; a very good copy. First edition in Polish of Mill's Utilitarianism (first, 1863), his important "definition of Utilitarianism, and a defence of the philosophy expressed by it …" (MacMinn et al.) The translator was the positivist philosopher, publicist, and jurist Feliks Bogacki (1847-1916). "Western liberals – particularly English liberals – were extolled by many in Warsaw in the late 1860s and 1870s, but when their work was translated, it was repositioned within a specifically Polish debate … Adam Wislicki, the editor and publisher of the positivist's organ, The Weekly Review, (Przeglad tygodniowy), hoped to shift attention away from 'high politics' (the 'abstract' problems of international diplomacy or the conflicts of ruling elites) and towards 'little politics' (the newest methods of raising sheep, spreading literacy, financing higher education, and building railroads)'" (Brian A. Porter, The Social Nation and its Futures: English Liberalism and Polish Nationalism in Late Nineteenth-Century Warsaw, in: The American Historical Review, vol. 101, No. 5, December, 1995, p. 1470-77). Mill himself had been following closely the events in Poland of the 1860s, as his Letter on Poland, published in the Penny Newsman for March 15, 1863 proves. It is "a discussion of the insurrectionary movement in Poland which, Mill maintains, is designed to return the lands to the peasants; [it] is popular in origin; and is, because it is a revolution, indicative of the commencement of a new era in the downtrodden countries of Europe" (MacMinn, Hainds & McCrimmon, p. 94). As stated on the title of Utilitarianism, this Polish edition was authorized by Mill.

Maxwell saw electricity not as just another branch of physics but 'as an aid to the interpretation of nature' and saw the study of electromagnetism 'as a means of promoting the progress of science' (Preface p.vii). He demonstrated the importance of electricity to physics as a whole, advancing "the significant hypothesis that light and electricity are the same in their ultimate nature" (Grolier/Horblit). This theory, one of the most important discoveries of nineteenth-century physics, was Maxwell's greatest achievement, and laid the groundwork for Einstein's theory of relativity. "Maxwell once remarked that the aim of his Treatise was not to expound the final view of his electromagnetic theory, which he had developed in a series of five major papers between 1855 and 1868; rather, it was to educate himself by presenting a view of the stage he had reached in his thinking. Accordingly, the work is loosely organized on historical and experimental, rather than systematically deductive, lines. It extended Maxwell's ideas beyond the scope of his earlier work in many directions, producing a highly fecund (if somewhat confusing) demonstration of the special importance of electricity to physics as a whole. He began the investigation of moving frames of reference, which in Einstein's hands were to revolutionize physics; gave proofs of the existence of electromagnetic waves that paved the way for Hertz's discovery of radio waves; worked out connections between the electrical and optical qualities of bodies that would lead to modern solid-state physics; and applied Tait's quaternion formulae to the field equations, out of which Heaviside and Gibbs would develop vector analysis." (Norman 1466). Very Good.
