        THE AENEIDS OF VIRGIL

      London: Ellis and White, 1876. FIRST EDITION, First Issue n. Hardcover. 206 x 137 mm (8 1/8 x 5 3/8"). 2 p.l., 382 pp. FIRST EDITION, First Issue. MAGNIFICENT NAVY BLUE MOROCCO, ELABORATELY INLAID AND ENCRUSTED WITH GILT, BY SANGORSKI & SUTCLIFFE (stamp-signed on rear doublure), front cover with wide frame featuring very many inlaid green and brown morocco acorns, the frame enclosing a recessed central panel with densely scrolling gilt stems and leaves as well as blooms of violet and orange morocco and, at center, a monogram "W M" within a brown morocco collar, the four corners of the cover with square inlays of beige morocco decorated in gilt and bearing the letters "Æ," "T," "L," and "D" (the first initials of four key characters); the back cover with a similar broad frame (but featuring a gilt-decorated column of blue foliage), a similar recessed panel (but with different flowers and with the letter "V" at the center inside a powder-blue morocco collar), and corner squares of inlaid brown morocco decorated with classical motifs (helmet, shield, etc.); raised bands, spine in compartments decorated like the recessed panels (but with rust-colored flowers); DOUBLURES OF RUSSET MOROCCO enclosed by dark blue turn-ins, the latter with gilt quotations, the former with 11 rows of inlaid blue flowers and gilt leaves, a set of batiked leather flyleaves followed by anpther set in silk, gilt and intricately gauffered edges featuring many small flowers as well as painted leaves. In a new suede-lined folding cloth box with leather spine label. Lemire A-11.01; Forman 41. The paper stock not as bright as one might hope for, but THE WONDERFUL BINDING IN PERFECT CONDITION. An item of extraordinary beauty, this is a binding done in the first third of the 20th century as part of the spirited competition between Sangorski and Riviere over which firm could produce volumes engulfed with the most dazzling ornamentation. The deep blue of the basic morocco is apparent in two spine compartments and in the frame on the lower cover, but the rest of the binding has so many inlays and so many tiny gilt dots that the volume has essentially become gold. At the same time, there is symmetry and sufficiently restrictive variety at work here to exert control on decoration that otherwise could push the limit of equilibrium. Such grandeur reflects well on the importance of the text. This translation of Virgil's epic about the fall of Troy and the founding of Rome was indirectly the result of Morris' evolution as a political activist. In addition to being an enormously influential designer, author, and printer, William Morris (1834-96) was an ardent socialist. Frustrated with the English class system and the lack of support for the arts, Morris became more politically active in the mid-1870s, travelling frequently to attend and address meetings. To amuse himself on his travels (usually on the London Underground), he took to translating the classics. Buxton Forman notes that Morris borrowed the ballad meter employed in Chapman's translation of Homer, but used "finer language" and stayed more faithful to the original than the much-praised Chapman.

        Die Leitungsbahnen im Gehirn und Rückenmark des Menschen auf Grund entwicklungsgeschichtlicher Untersuchungen.

      . Leipzig, Engelmann, 1876, 8°, XVI, 320 pp., 20 ganzseitige lith. Taf. in 4°, feiner Halblederband mit 4 Bünden und Rückenvergoldung; mit Stempel von F.Miescher-Rüsch und dem Physiol. Institut Basel auf Titel; sehr gutes Exemplar.. A MILESTONE OF MODERN NEUROLOGY! - Erste Ausgabe eines seltenen Grundlagenwerkes der modernen Neurologie. Neben Meynert gehört Paul Flechsig (1847-1927) zu den Pionieren der wissenschaftlichen Erforschung der Hirnrinde. Als Informationsquelle benutzte er Markreifung. Durch Färbung konnte er den Verlauf einer Nervenfaser in dem unendlichen Gewirr der Millarden von Fasern u. Fäserchen, welche die weisse Substanz der Grosshirnlappen zusammensetzen, von Anfang bis Ende verfolgen. Flechsig gelang die zeitliche Reihenfolge der Markfüllung von Nervenbahnen zu bestimmen. Er konnte auf diese Weise 36 spezifische Rindenregionen abgrenzen, die mit den Nervenbahnen in Verbindung stehen. Flechsig aus Zwickau in Sachsen promovierte 1870, wurde 1877 Professor der Psychiatrie und war seit Eröffnung der neubegründeten Universitäts - Irrenanstalt Leipzig deren Direktor und Ordinarius für Psychiatrie. - *FIRST EDITION of a famous book. Flechsig recognized that the understanding of the nervous system could be enhanced through the study of myelogenesis. The treatise on the pyramidal and dorsal spinocerebellar tract (Flechsig's tract) is one of the earliest and most important works on the subject. Flechsig's fame is due mainly to his technique of myelogenesis for the examination of the brain and the spinal cord. It led to Flechsig's study of the nerve development in the cerebral hemisheres and the charting of the fields of the cerebral cortex. His studies of myelinogenesis, beautifully illustrated in his works, are one of the milestones of modern neurology. - Garrison & Morton 1419; Heirs of Hippocrates 2100; Cushing F 182; Waller 3072; See Clarke & O'Malley, Human brain, pp.277-280; Haymaker-Schiller, pp.23-27; DSB V, pp.26-28.; Rothschuh Nr.1371+1557

        The Functions of the Brain.

      - London, Smith, Elder & Co., 1876, 8°, XV, 323, (4) pp., 68 Fig., orig. Leinenband; Vorsätze erneuert, feines und frisches Exemplar. Rare First Edition - - - "Sir David Ferrier's (1843-1928) pioneering experimental work in neurophysiology established the basis for modern neurology and neurosurgery . Using electrical stimulation and cortical ablation, Ferrier showed conclusively 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 . Ferrier's work confirmed the idea that there existed in the nervous system a rational and understandable organization. This had immense clinical significance in both the diagnosis and the treatment of diseases of the brain" Grolier Medicine - - "In 1873, inspired by the experiments of Fritsch and Hitzig, Ferrier began his detailed, systematic investigation of the cerebral cortex, with the express purpose of testing the opinions of his colleague Hughlings Jackson on the etiology of unilateral epilepsy based upon cortical localization of function. Working mostly with primates, and employing faradic stimulation to the cortex (an important advance over Fritsch and Hitzig's galvanic stimulation), Ferrier confirmed Jackson's views by reproducing experimentally his hypothesized "discharging" and "destroying" lesions; he then went to repeat the experiments of Fritsch and Hitzig, and to chart the precise localization of cortical function - particularly motor function - in dogs, monkeys and other vertebrates. His scheme of localized function was based upon the concepts of 'motor' and 'sensory' regions, but also recognized the necessity of their interaction. Ferrier's result, first published in the 'West Riding lunatic asylum reports of 1873', were amplified in the 'Fuction of the brain (1876)', which constitutes one of the most significant publications in the field of cortical localization." Norman 791 - - ". it was the impact of the cumulated cross-species research brought together in 1876 in 'The Functions of the Brain' that served to confirm the installation of sensory-motor analysis as the dominant paradigm for explanation in both physiology and psychology" (Wozniak, Mind and Body, Exhibition Cat. Bethesda 1992, p.24 - - Erste Ausgabe der bahnbrechenden Arbeit. - ".die säkularisierende und biologisierende Rolle der Phrenologie ist auch am Wendepunkt zum evolutionistischen Denken nicht zu übersehen. Sie hat vielmehr kräftig mitgeholfen, diesen heraufzuführen, bis in den siebziger Jahren der Evolutionsgedanke im Verein mit der experimentellen Physiologie durch die Arbeiten von Fritsch, Hitzig und Ferrier auch in der Hirnlokalisationslehre eindrang und dieser ein neues Gepräge verliehen hat" Erna Lesky - - Garrison-Morton 1409; Grolier Medicine 76; Heirs of Hippocrates 2059; Norman 791.

        Two Autograph Letters signed to Carl Christian Giegler, Chief of Sudan Telegraph, in Khartoum

      London, 1 march 1876, 23 november 1876. 8vo. Together 12 pages. With original envelopes in Grant's hand . COL. GRANT ON GORDON'S FIRST TOUR OF DUTY IN AFRICA: In the March 1876 letter, Grant notes The Times's report on Gordon's contemplation of retirement. "It is reported ... that my excellent friend Colonel Gordon contemplated retiring from his present duties south of Gondokar, and if this is true, no one will regret it more than I do for he is one in a thousand - one in every respect highly qualified for bringing the natives under a new rule - I trust the report is without foundation ... " In the November letter he expresses relief that Gordon is staying in Khartoum: "It delighted me to hear that Colonel Gordon was not coming home when he intended as changes in the Govt. make a great difficulty out there, besides which he is so well suited for the work, however I think that five years work on the Nile is very trying to a constitution and that a trip to Europe is absolutely necessary after five or six to recruit body & mind. Colonel Gordon can have few European comforts about him. l know he will be successful in placing the "Khedive" upon the Victoria and in getting some proper person to take his place whenever he wishes to resign and take leave to Europe." He then reports that Mr. Lucas has asked for a letter of recommendation to Gordon, but "as [Lucas] had never been with natives" and lacked knowledge of eastern countries, Grant declined to write it

      . Beitr. Biol. Pflanz., 2/2. - Breslau, J.U. Kern's Verlag (Max Müller, 1876, 8°, (4), pp.123-310, mit fünf zum Teil farbigen Tafeln, Halbledereinband der Zeit; Rücken erneuert; feines Exemplar.. First Edition of two Milestones of Microbiology! - In 1876 Robert Koch (1843-1910) first obtained pure cultures of B.anthracis and described its complete life history. With Davaine (No.5165-66) he did much to prove that infectious diseases are caused by living reproductive micro - organisms. The postulates expounded by Koch on this occasion had fundamental importance and have become the bases on which bacteriology largely rests. The paper also marks the beginning of exact knowledge of bacterial infectious diseases. It is reproduced with translation in Med. Classics, 1938, 2, 745-820. - Milestones in Microbiology, Ed. by. Thomas Brock (1961), pp.89-95; Garrison & Morton No.5167 - - *) "Ferdinand Cohn "clearly saw that not all liquids or solids are sterilized easily. Instead of using this information to accept or reject the theory of spontaneous generation, he decided to find out what was responsible for this observations. His experiment with hay infusion was an enrichment culture. By boiling for a while, he killed all organisms that were sensitive to boiling water. Only heat resistant forms were left, and these could develop and he studied under the microscope. In this way he discovered a new species, Bacillus subtilis, and a new process, spore formation ... We know now that bacterial spores are the most heat resistant of all living organism ... We can also see here in Cohn's work the beginnings of the development of bacteriological techniques, such as the use of cotton for closing flasks and tubes. But probably the most important result of this work is that it was the direct forerunner of Koch brilliant researches on infectious disease." Milestones in Microbiology, Ed. by.
