        Manuscript Archive of the family of Dr. George Senn, M.D., of De Pere and Green Bay, Wisconsin, nephew of the famed Dr. Nicholas Senn, includes Correspondence while serving in the Medical Corps in WWI, his Medical and Scientific School Notebooks, Family Photographs, Paper and Manuscript Ephemera, dated 1870s - 1940s

      - Large Manuscript Archive consisting of 1,074 letters, approximately 3,293 pages; School, Medical, and Scientific Notebooks, 3,287 manuscript pages; 260 photographs; 1,364 pieces of paper ephemera, both paper and manuscript, all dated from the 1870s to the 1940s. Dr. George Senn, M.D. Dr. George Senn was born February 14, 1876, at Green Bay, Wisconsin. He was the son of Henry C. Senn and Sophia Findeisen. His father came to Green Bay from Ashford, Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, about 1870. The family was of Swiss origin, his ancestor having immigrated to America around 1847-1852, settling in Ashford. Henry Senn was a school teacher in Green Bay for some time, but retired to Oshkosh, Wisconsin. Mrs. Senn died in 1890. While born in Green Bay, George Senn would later move to De Pere, Wisconsin, where he made his home. Senn¿s uncle was the famous surgeon and author, Dr. Nicholas Senn1 (1844-1908). Dr. Senn received his early education in the public schools of Oshkosh and later attended the Oshkosh State Normal School, from which he received a life certificate as a teacher. He spent the year 1895-96 teaching school in Green Bay, after which time he attended the University of Wisconsin, graduating with the degree of B.S. in 1901. In 1903 Dr. Senn received the degree of M.S. from the University of Chicago for post-graduate work. The archive includes school notebooks for the years of his education at the above institutions. While in graduate school Senn was appointed to a fellowship in physiology under Professor Jacques Loeb2 (1859-1924), the noted physiologist and biologist, where he spent two years in exhaustive research work under Loeb's supervision. Senn had been working under Loeb for several months at the time of the fellowship and was recommended by Loeb himself for it. The fellowship provided Senn with $300 per year, but more than that, it gave him the opportunity to work closely with the most advanced studies being done in certain branches of original research. Prof. Loeb in his time became one of the most famous scientists in America, widely covered in newspapers and magazines. He was nominated a number of times for the Nobel Prize, but never won. His main area of interest was animal tropisms and their relation to the instincts of animals; heteromorphosis, the replacement of an injured or removed organ by a different organ; toxic and antitoxic effects of ions; artificial parthenogenesis; and hybridization of the eggs of sea-urchins by the sperm of starfish (A complete biography and details of Loeb's scientific work can be found in the American National Biography, Volume 13, pages 814-816; Oxford University Press, 1999). Dr. George Senn named one of his sons Jacques Loeb Senn, to honor his professor. This collection includes several letters of Prof. Loeb, as well as notebooks kept by Dr. Senn for the Physiology lectures and laboratory work he performed under Prof. Jacques Loeb, while at University of Chicago. In 1903, George Senn entered Rush Medical College, from which institution he received his M.D. degree in December of 1904, at which time he began his practice as a surgeon. After graduating medical school he was made house surgeon of St. Joseph's Hospital at St. Joseph, Missouri, and acted in that capacity from January 12, 1905 to December 31 of the same year. He began the general practice in St. Joseph and remained in that city for four years. On January 1, 1910, he went to De Pere, Wisconsin, and opened his practice in that city, where he stayed for most of the rest of his life. During his residence in St. Joseph he was a lieutenant and assistant surgeon for three years and later captain and assistant surgeon in the Fourth Regiment of the Missouri National Guard. On coming to De Pere in 1910 he continued to specialize in surgery and gained a reputation during the years of his residence in this city as a successful surgeon. He became a member of the Brown County Medical Society and was also prominent in the

        THE HOLY BIBLE: containing the Old and New Testaments; translated literally from the original tongues

      Hartford, CT: American Publishing Company. 1876. 1st edition. hb. Royal 8vo, pp. 892, 276. Re-bound in modern brown buckram with the original brown cloth from the front board laid-down. Internally clean and tight. . The Julia E. Smith Parker translation of the bible is considered to be the first complete translation of the bible into English by a woman. Smith (1793-1886) of Gastonbury, Connecticut, was a member of the Sandemanian sect founded in Scotland about 1730, which advocated the restoration of the apostolic church. As a child she acquired a working knowledge of Latin, Greek and Hebrew. At the age of 54, after having read the bible in its original languages, she commenced a literal translation, which she completed in 1855. The work is a strictly literal rendering; Smith always translating a Greek or Hebrew word into the same word in English, wherever possible. Smith completed this work, on her own, in eight years. Not only is this considered the first complete translation of the bible by a woman, but it is the only translation made by anyone - man or woman - without help. As Smith says, in her Preface: "It may be thought by the public in general, that I have great confidence in myself, in not conferring with the learned in so great a work, but as there is but one book in that Hebrew tongue, and I have defined it word for word, I do not see how anyone could know more about it than I do." In 1876, at 84 years of age, she finally sought publication (although she says in her Preface that this was not her intention when she began). The publication costs of $4,000 were underwritten by Smith and her sister Abby Smith. One thousand copies were printed and offered for sale at $2.50 each.

        View of College Point, L.I. 1876

      Milwaukee, 1876. No Binding. Very Good. 19 ¾ x 28 inches. Marginal mends away from image, rebacked on supporting sheet, very good overall. An elegant and scarce bird's-eye view of College Point, showing the area during its transition from a rural suburb to a thriving factory town. The development of the neighborhood centered on the Enterprise Rubber Works, founded by the German-American philanthropist and entrepreneur Conrad Poppenhusen. His factory is shown as well as two other significant Poppenhusen works: the College Point station of the Long Island Railroad (the rubber baron acquired and consolidated the railroads which would become the LIRR) and the Poppenhusen Institute, a free educational center whose offerings included the first free kindergarten. Many of the residents of College Point were, like Poppenhusen, German immigrants; hence it is not surprising that the neighborhood should have become well known for its beer. Only one of the famous beer-gardens, the Boulevard Hotel, is labeled; but two breweries are marked and named. Schools, churches, lumberyards and other manufactories are labeled as well. The view is decorated with many sailboats, rowboats and a steamer sailing Flushing Bay and the East River. Reps, Views and Viewmakers 2489.

[2], 258; [2], 248; [2], 263, [1, printer’s imprint] pp. With the 16 pp. publisher’s catalogue, dated September, 1877, and the [8] pp. publisher’s advertisements, dated August 20th, 1877, at the end of Volume I. No half-titles called for. Decorative woodcut head- and tail-pieces.Original terra cotta pebble-grain cloth with covers decoratively stamped in blind and spines lettered in gilt. Original cream-colored endpapers. Minor rubbing to corners and spine extremities, small dark stain to spine of Volume I, a few additional light spots to covers, minor blistering to endpapers. Short tear to outer blank margin of P2 (pp. 211/212) in Volume I and to O7 and O8 (pp. 205/206) in Volume III, small piece torn from upper blank margin of R3 (pp. 245/256) in Volume III, due to poor opening, a few additional leaves poorly opened.

Poynder, Second-Hand Bookshop, Next to General Post Office, Reading.” Previous owner’s ink signature (Arthur J. Nash) on front free endpaper of each volume. A very good copy of this very scarce book. NUC locates only one copy (Illinois), OCLC locates only one copy (Cornell), and KVK locates three copies (British Library, Cambridge, and National Library of Scotland).Set in the eighteenth-century, the heroine, Gilmory Anstruther, is an appealing independent woman, who stands her ground firmly against a variety of adversaries. Mystery surrounds her birth, but hints are dropped that her father is an aristocrat. Her romance with the local miller's son enrages her scheming grandfather, who produces his own suitor for her hand. This is no less than Bonnie Prince Charlie, whose campaign the old miser has secretly been funding in exchange for his granddaughter's royal marriage. The Young Pretender turns out, however, to be an impostor, a notorious highwayman who has cheated the old man out of his gold. Gilmory's father is revealed to be the Duke of Gilmory, and she and the miller's son are united after a dramatic deathbed scene in which her grandfather begs forgiveness. Not in Sadleir or Wolff.

      1876. 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.

BEAUTIFUL FIRST EDITION IN FINE BINDINGS, THIS ISSUE WITH THE PLATES IN FULL COLOUR, in most issues the plates other then the decorated titlepage were only tinted . A beautifully produced account of Livingstone’s life and of his many adventures in Africa in a proper and very handsome contemporary binding. The coloration adds magnificently to these dramatic and exciting plates. Livingstone was one of the greatest national heroes of his day. Much like the American astronauts in the 1960s Livingstone represented for the British people the finest example of their national manhood and a true and courageous explorer of a "last frontier". This edition is considerably expanded, the editions more commonly found have only 19 plates and over 200 fewer pages. "Dr. David Livingstone, the Scottish medical missionary, is known to history as the greatest explorer of his age and a dedicated humanitarian who devoted his life to the eradication of the African slave trade. He was a national hero to his contemporaries and time has confirmed his reputation as one of the greatest, if not the greatest, of the eminent Victorians, both in his achievement and in his influence." - George Martelli [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Balaclava : The return 25th October 1854 ; "The charge of the six hundred" photogravure print

      London, Fine Art Society 1876 - Paper size: 26-3/4 x 17 inches Image size (not text): 25 x 13-1/8 inches. Circa 1876. "The Charge of the Six Hundred" by Lady Elizabeth Butler. black and white photogravure (not a steel engraving), copyright, The Fine Art Society London Balaclava, the return, 25th October, 1854. . photogravure, copyright, the Fine Art Society London Survivors walking back after the failed charge of the Light Brigade; wounded, bandaged. and dazed figures, some mounted soldiers. Includes two stanzes from poem by Alfred Lord Tennyson. Professionally washed and cleaned, soft crease in bottom margin otherwise in near fine condition. Elizabeth Southerden BUTLER (1846-1933) BUTLER, Lady Elizabeth Born Lausanne, Switzerland 1846; died Gormanston, Co.Meath 1933. Elizabeth Thompson, later Lady Butler, was perhaps the leading painter of this genre of the late nineteenth century. Her famous quartet of paintings exhibited between 1874 and 1877 (Calling the Roll after and Engagement in the Crimea - Her Majesty the Queen; Quatre Bras - National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne; Balaclava - City of Manchester Art Gallery; and The Return from Inkerman - Ferens Art Gallery, Kingston upon Hull) established her reputation but her subsequent works never quite achieved the fame of these earlier pictures, in spite of such dramatic scenes as Scotland for Ever! (Leeds City Art Gallery) and The Defence of Rorke's Drift (Her Majesty the Queen). She continued to exhibit at the Royal Academy until 1920 but with few exceptions, all her pictures had military themes particularly soldiers in battle. While she never witnessed actual warfare, although she was in Egypt for some years in the 1880's with her husband, Lieut. Gen. Sir William Butler, many of her pictures were drawn accurately using models in some cases, or observing soldiers on maneuvers or practicing charges at Aldershot. For instance, when Queen Victoria commissioned the artist to depict the defense of Rorke's Drift, Elizabeth Butler went down to Gosport where the 24th Regiment was billeted upon its return from Natal, and made sketches from life. The soldiers even re-enacted the battle in their original uniforms worn throughout the campaign.

        The Adventures of Tom Sawyer

      London: Chatto and Windus,, 1876. Octavo. Original red cloth with border and cover design blocked in black and lettering in gilt, cream coated endpapers. Housed in a burgundy quarter morocco solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Ownership inscription on front pastedown. Extremities a little rubbed, spine very slightly darkened, shelf-wear to bottom corners of front board, superficial cracking to rear inner hinge but otherwise intact, text block solid, a very good copy, fresh and unrestored, scarce thus. First edition, published on 9 June, thus preceding the first American edition that appeared in mid-December by some six months. Twain chose to have the book published first in London to ensure copyright and perhaps also because he was more highly esteemed in Britain than at home. Oxford conferred an honorary doctorate on Twain in 1907, three years before his death, an honour grander than any he ever received in America.

      1876. Diary of J. R. Kazallon, Passenger. Translated from the French by Ellen Frewer. Boston: James R. Osgood and Company, 1876. Original green cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt, beveled. First American Illustrated Edition, actually printed in London. In mid-1875 Osgood published the first edition in English, unillustrated, as a little volume in their "Saunterer&#39;s Series." In November 1875, Sampson Low published the first illustrated edition in London. Then in January 1876, Osgood issued some of the British sheets in their own binding, constituting the first American illustrated edition -- as here. In March 1876 -- just two months later -- Osgood&#39;s financial situation forced him to sell at auction the plates and unsold copies of the five Verne titles he had published; these were bought by one Albert Mason, who in turn sold them to Porter & Coates of Philadelphia -- who would then proceed to use the plates to publish editions of their own. (Porter & Coates also issued some copies with the Osgood 1876 title page, but with "Porter & Coates" at the foot of the spine.) As with the British edition, the volume also includes the early Verne tale "Martin Paz," though it is not mentioned on the binding nor on the title page.~This copy is in green cloth, and the gilt vignette on the front cover is centered (no known priority). It is a bright, near-fine copy (fine except for minor rubbing at the extremities). Apparently because of Osgood&#39;s then-pending doom, this is today a scarce book. Taves & Michaluk V014; Myers 47.

        Biographical Sketches of the Leading Men of Chicago. Photographically Illustrated

      Chicago: Wilson, Pierce & Co, 1876. Thick quarto. (12 x 9 inches). [1]- 258, [1-5]pp. 123 albumen photographic portraits by John Carbutt and others, each mounted within a printed gilt border, on a thin card leaf, some leaves with a mounted photograph on both the recto and verso. Publisher&#39;s black calf, the covers elaborately blocked in blind with a wide border built up from rules and a large Greek-key roll, the central panel with large corner-pieces of stylised foliage around a large central arabesque lozenge shape, all blocked in blind, the spine in five compartments with semi-raised bands. lettered in gilt in the second compartment, the others with simple repeat tooling in blind, marbled endpapers, gilt edges (neat repairs to joints). An extraordinary copy of this work, including more portrait photographs than any other recorded copy. This is a work which traditionally includes anywhere from 62 to 99 images: the present example, with 123 images, is the largest that we have ever handled and the largest that we have been able to trace. It is usually described as the second edition of a work with the same title published in 1868. However, the present work should arguably be treated as a new work as the changes and additions are so substantial. For example, the text has been entirely reset and indeed largely re-written with the entries brought up to date (e.g. the 1871 fire is mentioned on numerous occasions) and the number of individual biographies extended from 107 to 187. The only aspect of the first edition which does not appear to have changed is the inclusion of the fine portrait photographs by English-born pioneer photographer John Carbutt. Carbutt mantained a studio in Chicago for most of the 1860s, but sold to Thomas Copelin and moved away. Thomas Copelin, initially operating with a partner as Copelin & Melander, dissolved the partnership in 1871 when he took his son Alexander Copelin into the business. Alexander is the subject of one of the photographs in the present work (see opposite p.246). It is reasonable to assume that the photographs that were not in Carbutt&#39;s original 1868 edition, are in part, if not all, by the photographers of the gallery of Copelin & Son.
