        Du cancer chez les enfants

      Paris: Imprimerie Badoureau, 1876. <p>First Collected Report on Childhood Cancer</p> <p>Duzan, J. Du cancer chez les enfants. Thèse pour le doctorat en médecine. [4], iv, 70pp. Paris: Imprimerie Badoureau, 1876. 238 x 157 mm. Original printed wrappers, a little worn and spotted. Corner of one leaf torn not affecting text, but very good. Presentation Copy, inscribed by Duzan on the title: &#147;A mon ami Gaillardan Souvenir affectueux Dr. Duzan.&#148;</p> <p>First Edition of the First Collected Report on Childhood Cancer. &#147;Before the thesis of Duzan (1876), there was no collected report of the forms of cancer occurring in childhood. Lebert (1851) mentions them in his work upon malignant diseases, but out of 471 cases notes only 15 as belonging to childhood. This, however, directed the attention of authors to the subject, and Duzan was able to collect 182 cases&#148; (American Journal of Obstetrics and Diseases of Women and Children 17 [1884]: 333). All 182 cases were of pediatric sarcoma: 70 of the eye, 45 of the kidney, 11 of the testicle, 8 of the prostate, and the remainder divided among the bones, tongue, abdomen, brain and dura mater, lung, pancreas, liver, tonsils, rectum and stomach. Oddly, Duzan&#146;s thesis is not noted in our printed histories of cancer or of pediatrics. Rodman, &#147;The influence of age, sex and race in surgical affections,&#148; Journal of the American Medical Association 31 (1898): 491-503; Duzan&#146;s thesis is cited on p. 493. </p>

      [New York?]. 1876.. 56pp. Original printed tan wrappers. Spine and corners considerably chipped, lower wrapper detached, wrappers a bit soiled with light stains, top fore-corner of last three leaves chipped (touching or approaching the page numbers); still, an intact copy of a scarce book. First edition of this tragic verse play in five acts, privately published by the author. This copy features the manuscript insertion on the first page, in an unidentifiable hand in block letters, of a one word first line of dialogue by Maria, "Father!," which renders more sensible the first printed line of dialogue, by Josef Ribera. An uncommon book: OCLC locates ten copies only (spread between two entries, one based on the title-page, one on the wrapper title), and the front wrapper of the Yale copy is illustrated in BAL. The text was reprinted in 1882 in SONGS OF A SEMITE. BAL 11487. RODEN, p.74.

        Autograph letter signed to [Jabez] Hogg, discussing microbiology

      London 1876 - "I Was Able to Obtain Fermentation or Putrefaction with Well Marked Turbidity"Bastian, Henry Charlton (1837-1915). Autograph letter signed to Jabez Hogg (1817-99). [London,] March 6, 1876. 3pp. 114 x 90 mm. Traces of mounting on blank verso of second leaf, but fine otherwise.From Henry Bastian, a physician who made notable contributions to the emerging specialty of clinical neurology, and a pioneer writer on theories of the origin of life; to Jabez Hogg, ophthalmologist, microscopist and early adopter of the germ theory of disease. Bastian published important papers on aphasia (see Garrison-Morton 4622, 4629) and was the first to demonstrate "Bastian's law": that complete section of the upper spinal cord abolishes reflexes and muscular tone below the level of the lesion. Bastian is best known, however, for his defense of the doctrine of spontaneous generation (abiogenesis) in the face of accepted scientific opinion. In opposition to Pasteur, Koch, Tyndall and other bacteriologists, Bastian argued that there was no fixed boundary between organic and inorganic life, stating that "since living matter must have arisen from nonliving matter at an early stage in evolution, such a process could still be taking place" (Dictionary of Scientific Biography). He can thus be seen as one of the first to consider the question of the origins of life from a scientific standpoint. Some of Bastian's experimental work in support of his views on abiogenesis (contrary to his intent) ended up advancing the progress of bacteriology. It was Bastian, for example, who showed that boiling did not destroy all bacteria, a finding that led to the discovery of heat-resistant spores.Bastian's letter to Hogg critiques the findings of John Tyndall, whose recent experiments had shown that air from which all dust and floating particles had been removed was incapable of generating bacterial life. The letter reads in part as follows:"I have no doubt that your surmises would prove perfectly correct concerning a certain number of Tyndall's solutions. Freedom from turbidity does not by any means imply absence of organisms-but in the experiments which he has imperfectly endeavored to repeat I was able to obtain fermentation or putrefaction with well marked turbidity . . ."Tyndall had undertaken his experiments specifically to discredit Bastian's theories of spontaneous generation.

Of the novel, Trollope wrote: "I had never yet drawn the completed picture of such a statesman as my imagination had conceived.... He should have rank, and intellect, and parliamentary habits, by which to bind him to the service of his country; and he should also have unblemished, unextinguishable, inexhaustible of love of the ruling principle of his life; and it should so rule him that all other things should be made to give way to it.... Such a character I have endeavoured to depict in describing the triumph, the troubles, and the failure of my Prime Minister." A Very Good copy of an important Trollope novel.

        Yacht Designing: A Treatise on the Practical Application of the Scientific Principles upon which is based the Art of Designing Yachts

      London, 1876. b/w folding plates, ills in text. Folio. x, 118 pp. Toy says, &#147;Kemp was a central and extremely important figure in yachting and yacht designing. His work is of great historical importance.&#148; This book precedes the more common &#147;Yacht Architecture&#148; by two decades, and is his first work to include the scientific principles put forth by Scott Russell and Rankine. It features XXIV (actually forty) numbered plates, most of which are folding. Toy 4761. Unlike &#147;Yacht Architecture&#148; which was printed on horrible paper, this volume uses higher quality materials and has held up quite well. In fact, this is an immaculate copy, clean and fresh as the day it was printed, with six original folio illustrated advertising pages bound in at back. Sturdily rebound in half blue morocco over marbled boards.

      [Np. ca. 1876].. Broadside, 10 1/2 x 4 inches. Very minor toning. Fine. A handbill advertising the Parker Brothers&#39; performance, with blanks (here left blank) which could be filled in to advertise the time and place of the show. The program includes "Culver&#39;s Great Diaphanous Display," a panorama depicting the Minnesota Sioux War of 1862, which is claimed to show "the hardships of the pioneer, the desperation of the Indian, and the terrible issue of that great tragedy, the Sioux massacre, and the execution of its fiendish perpetrators. It is a show grand and graphic in outline, complete in detail, yet inoffensive to the most delicate." The advertisement continues: "Remember, this is no catch-penny or magic lantern affair, but a show of genuine art and splendor. There will be three changes of canvass, during which time the Parker Bro&#39;s., assisted by the company, will appear in their character songs and sketches representing Irish, Dutch and Negro characters, in which they are seldom equaled." Most of the theatricals depicted scenes from the 1862 conflict, or from the Modoc War of 1873. The company must have been limping along on its old performances, about to be completely outmoded - the "recent outbreak under Sitting Bull" gets only one scene, "Custer&#39;s conflict," suggesting that this is just before Little Big Horn. This is yet another unknown western panorama. All in all, a family entertainment of a thrilling and bloody nature.

      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&#39;s epic about the fall of Troy and the founding of Rome was indirectly the result of Morris&#39; 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&#39;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 [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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.
