        Philadelphia Photographer

      1873. First Edition . (PHOTOGRAPHY) WILSON, Edward L., editor. The Philadelphia Photographer. Volume X, January 1873 to December 1873, Nos. 109-120. Philadelphia: Benerman & Wilson, 1873. Octavo, contemporary three-quarter black morocco, raised bands. $1500.Original 12 monthly issues of the premiere 19th-century photography journal, Numbers 109-120 (January–December, 1873), bound in one volume, with 13 original albumen plates mounted on heavy card stock, numerous in-text illustrations, and articles featuring renowned photographers such as William Bell of the Wheeler Expedition and renowned daguerreotype photographer Albert Sands Southworth.Reflecting the nationÂ’s growing passion for photography, Philadelphia formed a photographic society in 1864, accompanied by its own publication, an “outstanding independent journalÂ… the Philadelphia Photographer, with Edward L. Wilson as editor. Through the efforts of Wilson this journal achieved an outstanding place in the photographic literature of the times. For many years it was the foremost publication of its kind in this country” (Taft, 205). Each issue is highlighted by a fine mounted frontispiece photograph, showcasing the work of accomplished commercial and landscape photographers, including the first publication in this journal of two striking plates printed in the heliotype process invented by Ernest Edwards. In addition, one issue has as its frontispiece an original albumen portrait of Benjamin French, whose company imported Voigtlander lenses, and another of photochemist Herman Vogel, the German scientist who “discovered that by dipping a plate in a colorant, it became sensitive to the color absorbed,” a finding that ultimately led to the production of panchromatic film and “was to have important repercussions for the image itself” (Frizot, 234). The journal contains, as well, numerous articles by Vogel, an account from photographer William Bell, reporting from the Wheeler Expedition in Colorado on “Photography in the Grand Gulch of the Colorado River,” and numerous talks given by Albert Sands Southworth at the Fifth Annual Meeting of the National Photographic Association. Southworth, one of the finest daguerreotype photographers of his time, also invented a device permitting the exposure of eight card negatives on a single plate, leading to the innovation of the card photograph, such as that represented in the albumen frontispiece for October (No. 118). The journal additionally features items on printing processes, retouching, developments in cameras, lenses and lighting, and includes the extensive September issue (No. 117), which offers comprehensive coverage of the National Photographic AssociationÂ’s annual meeting. With four pages of advertisements at rear of No. 120 (December). Text and images quite clean and fresh, only lightest scattered spotting without affecting images; slight edge-wear and soiling to covers of a near-fine collection of rare early American photography.

        Patinage á roulette, roller skating - Jack Abeillé.

      Gewassen tekening met waterverf, kleurkrijt en dekwit op velijnpapier door Jack Abeill? (1873 Varenne-Saint-Hilaire), getiteld ?Salade de Saison / Le sport de la mode: Voulez-vous ruiker (?) mademoiselle??? Gesigneerd en gedateerd (19)09 rechtonder. Formaat ca. 32,5 x 24 cm.Deze tekening komt uit de verzameling van Charlotte von Prybram-Gladona.Charlotte, habitu?e van de Beau Monde, werd in 1910 geboren te M?nchen en trouwde op vierentwintigjarige leeftijd met de Weense edelman Albin von Prybram-Gladona. De echtelieden ontmoetten elkaar tijdens de danslessen die Albin, twintig jaar ouder dan Charlotte, nam om fit te blijven (!). Zijn familie onderhield nauwe banden met Einstein, Schweitzer, Rilke en Thomas Mann, terwijl hij Johannes Brahms kende als 'Onkel Jo'.Toen Charlotte en Albin vlak voor het uitbreken van de Tweede Wereldoorlog verhuisden naar Parijs, verkochten zij noodgedwongen het leeuwendeel van hun meubelcollectie. Dat stelde hen echter wel in staat zich over te geven aan hun passie voor tekeningen, die beduidend minder plaats innamen. Het echtpaar keerde in 1969 terug naar Oostenrijk en vestigde zich in Salzburg. Albin overleed vijf jaar later, terwijl Charlotte er de hoge leeftijd van 92 bereikte.Prijs: ?600,- (incl. lijst, BTW margeregeling).

        A Treatise on Apoplexy, Cerebral Hemorhage, Cerebral Embolism, Cerebral Gout, Cerebral Rheumatism, and Epedmic Cerebro-Spinal Meningitis.

      - New York ; Wm. Wood & Co., 1873, 8°, XIX, (1), 395, (1) pp., orig. Leinenband; St.a.Tit. Rare First Edition! - - "MORE THAN A HUNDRED YEARS AGO, John Lidell ( -1883) observed that "red softening commences after 24-48 hours, dating from the apoplectiform attack" of cerebral embolism. While his pathological descriptions are arguably ambiguous, Lidell's observations surely are among the earliest descriptions of hemorrhagic infarct (HI). Our clinical-pathological concepts of His then lay relatively dormant until 1951, when Fisher and Adams emphasized the association of HI and embolism and proposed their well-known hypothesis about the mechanism of hemorrhagic transformation. HI remained an autopsy diagnosis until computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) permitted diagnosis during life. Recent studies, including two in this issue of STROKE, have refined our clinical concepts of HI. Treatment of acute stroke patients with thrombolytic agents and anticoagulants, both having secondary brain hemorrhage as their most feared complication, has rekindled interest in the occurrence and mechanisms of hemorrhagic infarction.,", Robert G. Hart & J. Donald Easton, Hemorrhagic Infarcts M. Stroke, 17 (1986): pp.586-589 - - "During the latter part of the nineteenth century, interest turned to the nature and causes of brain hemorrhage. In 1873, Lidell, a surgeon and anatomist, included a section on cerebral hemorrhage in his treatise on brain diseases. - Lidell's description of the main gross pathological features of brain hematomas is applicable even today. Size of the clot varies from that of a hemp-seed to that of the fist. If the extravasation occurs in the vicinity of a ventricle, it often breaks through the walls of the latter, and flows therein. Extravasations forming near the surface of the brain not infrequently break through the cortical substance and escape into the subarachnoid space. Usually there is only one hemorrhagic effusion in the whole brain, occasionally several. The most frequent seat of these effusions is the corpus striatum, the thalamus opticus, and the large medullary masses of the cerebral hemispheres; less frequently, they occur in the cortical substance of the cerebrum, the cerebellum, and in the pons varioli. - It was well known in Lidell's time that spontaneous hematomas usually occurred in the putamen, thalamus, lobar white matter, cerebellum, and pons, and the gross appearance and drainage patterns of these hematomas were described accurately."

        Lombard Street: A Description of the Money Market

      BAGEHOT,Walter. Lombard Street: A Description of the Money Market. London, S.King & Co 1873Octavo, 7.6 x 6.3 inches, original publishers brown cloth, lettered gilt and blind ruled in black, spine lettered gilt, pp.viii + 359 + [32] adverts, head of spine a little worn, original dark blue endpapers, contemporary ownership in ink on half title of H L Richmond, Meadville, Pa, a very good copy. First edition, infrequent and uncommon on the market. A vivid description of the money market that seamlessly brings together theoretical analyses, historical anecdotes, and incisive commentary on sociology, politics, and the Street's various personalities. Sharing his invaluable insights and unique observations, Bagehot touches on everything from the mechanics of deposit banking within a fractional reserve system to the nature of foreign deposits in Britain. Along with a clear explanation of why economic growth and rising living standards are dependent upon a well-managed financial system, he offers straightforward guidelines for the function of lender-of-last resort; a penetrating look at the consequences of uncontrolled credit and speculation; and an in-depth examination of the exchequer in the money market that includes a stimulating analysis of the interaction between the government's fiscal operations and the functioning of the Bank of England, the commercial banks, and the money market. Perhaps most importantly, Lombard Street features Bagehot's prescription for crisis management, which after nearly 150 years, remains the formula of choice for containing and curtailing financial crises.Filled with descriptions of Lombard Street that still ring true today, this jewel of a book has withstood the test of time to become a true investment classic, one that will appeal as much to the readers of today as it did to those of years ago."In language as fresh and clear today as it was over 100 years ago, he respectfully dissected the Bank of England's foundations, economic incentives, goals, and functions. In the process, he illuminated in a mere few hundred brilliant pages what distinguishes a Central Bank from a commercial bank, both on a daily basis and during crises such as bank panics and recessions. Bagehot's book was so readable and so remarkable that it was re-issued three times within a year, and was republished in many editions both during his lifetime and afterwards."

        Etudes sur le coeur et la circulation centrale dans la série des vertébrés. Anatomie et physiologie comparées. Philosophie naturelle.

      Montpellier, Coulet, Paris, Delahaye, 1873. ____ Première édition. "Sabatier's book on the heart and circulation in vertebrates (1873) immediately established his reputation as an anatomist. He made a detailed investigation of the cardiac morphology and physiology of amphibians and reptiles and from this research established the general laws that govern the functional evolution of the heart from fishes to mammals. He showed that these laws apply not only to the zoogical series but also to the developing embryo. (...). This work resolved several lengthy debates, including that on the significance in man of the coracoid process. He demonstrated that this structure is analogous to the pubis of the pelvic girdle".

      MCLOUGHLIN. GAME. CHIROMAGICA. NY: McLoughlin Bros. no date, circa 1873 (not later than 1877). This is a wonderful children's magnetic educational and divination game housed in the original 12 x 12x 2" mahogany box with a sliding wooden lid. The lid has a fanciful chromolithograph depicting a sorcerer standing within an alcove of books with a globe at his feet. In his extended hand is a wand pointing to a solar wheel. The box is in fine condition. Within the box, a hand appears to be free-floating beneath an instruction disc that is 4 1/2" in diameter. This disc is affixed to the center of a piece of glass that covers the upper surface of the box. DIRECTIONS ON THE DISC: "In asking a question, place the Question Card so that it will fit exactly over this disc, placing the question asked at the top, so that the dot on the edge will be directly opposite the dot on the top of this disc, when the hand will immediately move in a quizzical manner, and in a few moments stop, and give the correct answer." The game includes 3 small, 4" double sided circular chromolithographed question discs, each with 32 questions (16 per side) in fine condition. There are 3 pictorial framed answer sheets with circular cut outs. Each sheet has 32 circles with answers to the questions. Each of these sheets is wonderfully illustrated with vignettes and each sheet is to be used with its corresponding question disc. Two clean edge mends else fine. By the clever use of magnets, when the player places the question disc with the question he wants answered at the top, the hand immediately begins to move, eventually stopping to point to the correct answer in the outer ring. (Question - "Who cut the Gordian knot?" - Ans. "Alexander the Great"). A superb example of the best that McLoughlin Brothers had to offer American children.

        Le Jardin des Plantes. Compositions et dessins par A. Adam. Texte par Jules Rostaing.

      Paris: Ducrocq, probably 1873. Oblong folio, 24 colour-printed plates and 41 pp. text; some browning of the paper as common for books of this era, but very good in the original red boards embossed in gilt, bumped and a little worn at edges. A lovely edition of this work, designed as a series of three "promenades" through the Jardin des Plantes in Paris.Although it is of interest for many of the exotic animals on public show (including kangaroos and a platypus), the real significance of the work is the series of views by Adam that show the wider public touring the zoo and which provide an insight into the conditions at what had become, by this date, an important menagerie. Jules Rostaing (born 1824) was a well-known writer on all manner of natural history books, and this charming work is his study of the Jardin des Plantes at mid-nineteenth century. A copy of this work in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France has been given a date of 1873, which would certainly accord with the style of the book and the known period that the publisher Ducrocq was in business.
