        The Marvelous Musical Prodigy, Blind Tom, the Negro Boy Pianist. . . . (Cover title: Songs, Sketch of the Life of Blind Tom, The marvelous Musical Prodigy, The Negro Boy Pianist . . . .)

      Baltimore: The Sun Book and Job Printing Establishment, 1876. Pamphlet. Very Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 30 pages plus a one-page program note and a two-page piano advertisement. Pictorial wrapper with Blind Tom's portrait on the front cover. Sound binding. Clean pages with some very light foxing to the first and last few pages. Minor silverfish predation to front cover. Program for performances by Blind Tom. Includes a short biography, lyrics to many of his pieces, and a number of reviews. Two-page 1876 World's Fair advertisement for Steinway pianos in the rear. Tom, a blind autistic savant with incredible music ability, was one of the most famous performers of the mid-19th century. Born a slave in 1849, his mother (Charity Wiggins) and master (General James Bethune) discovered his inexplicable ability to mimic the most difficult piano performances immediately upon hearing them. By the time he was five years old, Tom was giving concerts and stunning critics with his virtuosity. As Bethune saw then end of the Civil War approaching, he contracted with Tom's parents to obtain guardianship in exchange for a home, subsistence, and monthly stipend for them and a salary for Tom. Bethune, his son, and finally his son's widow continued the arrangement and made hundreds of thousands of dollars from Tom's performances throughout the latter half of the 1800s.

        "War Memoirs" [three articles in] The Galaxy, Volume 22, 1876

      [New York]: Sheldon & Co.. 1876. Octavo. A series of three original articles removed from three continuous monthly numbers of The Galaxy (September, October, November), and bound together in contemporary quarter morocco and marbled paper boards. Apparently from the family library of Civil War General George Meade, with his engraved armorial bookplate on the front pastedown (Meade died in 1872; thus applied posthumously by either his widow, children, or an enterprising subsequent owner). The morocco is worn away at the spine, with the stitching thus exposed, else very good with moderate toning. Custer's "War Memoirs," in which he tells the story of his life in the Army of the Potomac during the Civil War, were written under conditions of hardship during his last march to Little Big Horn. The first two dispatches were received by The Galaxy just before his death, and the third, as noted by the editor, "is a portion of a manuscript found among General Custer's papers since his death." A curious copy with an interesting association: despite having no direct command experience, just three days prior to Gettysburg Meade brevetted Custer to Brigadier General, whereupon Custer led a brigade of cavalry to Gettysburg to reinforce Meade's troops, and proceeded to distinguish himself in many engagements. .

        His personal hardcover school notebook when Toulouse-Lautrec was about 12 years old, featuring the letters „T L" affixed to the front cover.

      n.p., [1876] - 4to. 87 pages written in Latin in Lautrec's hand, as well as his ownership signature on the first page, „H. de T. Lautrec". Although he adds "Fables d'Esope" beneath his name, the passages cover a vast array of topics typical of a 19th-century child's education, including summaries of events in classical history, moral reflections, religious lessons, and philosophical musings. Each piece is about a page long and headed with a brief title. Brief translated excerpts follow:The notebook begins with a passage entitled "Men’s Firmest Defense Is in Piety," in part: "O Lord, blessed are they who have put their hope in You! For when desolation invades their spirits, oppressed with the burden of affairs, they flee to You, and then, forgetting their sorrows, they draw strength and peace of mind from their source. You shelter them in a paternal embrace and spread before them the sacred light of faith O most sweet, nourishing religion and most holy faith, who can live without you." Lautrec was raised by his devoutly religious and overbearing mother, and began his formal schooling in 1872 at the prestigious Lycee Fontanes in Paris, but withdrew in 1875 due to his poor health. His mother's presence in his life at this time is certainly discernible in his writings on religion and philosophy in this notebook.The piece on page 30 is headed "On Socrates," which is followed by "On Fables." The latter, in part: "What is a fable but a tale for the improvement of men’s morals, generally wrapped in an amusing image, in which the pleasant and the useful, although most unlike in nature, conspire to mutually adorn and defend one another? What do you suppose that those ancient inventors of tales intended with so many and such ingenious fictions? Just to tickle the ears of their readers with a vain arrangement of words? Not at all, but rather, when they put trees and animals on stage, their aim was that the bad, contemplating their deformity as in a mirror, would avoid rashness in counsel, avarice in the search for wealth, pride in command, and fraud in all aspects of life." This is an especially interesting piece, as Lautrec studied the fables of Phaedrus and La Fontaine while in school and these likely informed the allegorical animals that appear in his late drawings.He further explores the classical world in "On the Phoenicians" on page 43, in part: "The Tyrians took their origin from the Phoenicians. Those who inhabited the seashore, being troubled by frequent movements of the earth in their homeland, founded a city that they called Sidona on account of the abundance of fish on those coasts, for the Phoenicians call fish sidon. Then many years later, having been driven out by the king of the Ascalonians, they took to their ships, leaving behind their homeland, and founded the city of Tyre a year before the fall of Troy." Although Lautrec’s artwork presents an extreme departure from the classical style, his familiarity with the stories can be seen in his body of work, including his portrayals of Mademoiselle Cocyle as Helen of Troy in La Belle Helene.The last page takes a moralistic slant on classical figures in a passage entitled "On Flatterers," in part: "Flatterers think that they can seek the favor of kings to the extent that they imitate them, but it often happens that they reproduce their vices rather than their virtues, as one or another example will sufficiently demonstrate to be true. It is said that Alexander’s head was bent down toward his shoulder, and his friends were in the habit of also going around with their heads bent down toward their shoulders. When Plato first came to Syracuse, Dionysius the Tyrant immediately devoted himself entirely to geometry, from which it is easily understood that everyone consequently became a geometer, following the king’s example." Lautrec takes a strong stance against flattery in this passage, a principle he certainly held throughout his life—his paintings were decidedly unflattering and direct.Interior

        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>

        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.

        THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND

      1876 - A Sequel to "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea." Complete in Three Parts. Fully Illustrated. Sold Only by Subscription. Boston: "Household Words" Publishing Co., 1876. Original green cloth decorated in black and gilt, beveled. Early (first?) American edition of all three parts in one volume. Both Scribner Armstrong of New York and Henry L. Shepard of Boston came out with the first American editions of Part I only in late 1874 -- about a year before Sampson Low's first British edition (in three volumes) and Scribner Armstrong's complete edition (in three volumes). In 1876 (actual dates unknown), Donnelley Loyd of Chicago, "Household Words" of Boston (as here), and Scribner Armstrong all came out with the first complete-in-one-volume editions. Quoting from T&M:~In 1876, THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND was issued by "Household Words" Publishing Company of Boston, sold only by subscription. Although billed as complete in three parts, this translation is abridged and condensed from Shepard's book (first part), and American Homes serial (second part), which was in itself adapted and abridged by Hawley Lee. A tall, slender volume, the book is bound in bevelled boards, with a small gilt image of a Civil War soldier standing guard inset above a floral design on the upper left corner of the front cover.~This copy is in good-plus condition (spine ends and fore-corners worn, endpapers cracked, some leaves torn near the spine). In our experience this 11-inch-tall double-columned volume is quite uncommon. See Taves & Michaluk V013. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        The Prime Minister

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1876. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the first edition, first printing, in Four Volumes bound in 3/4 blue leather with coordinated blue cloth, top edge of the closed page blocks gilded (minor wear to the spine heads with slight loss, leading board corners rubbed through, small spot to the closed page block&#39;s leading edge on Volume I, rubbing through to portions of the leading edge of Volume II&#39;s front board); the penultimate novel in Trollope&#39;s famed Palliser series, which, along with his Barsetshire novels, form the foundation of his fame. 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 country...as 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.
