        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.

        Beitrage zur Kenntnis der Bildung, Befruchtung und Theilung des thierisches Eies

      1876. Hertwig, Wilhelm August Oscar (1849-1922). Beitr? zur Kenntnis der Bildung, Befruchtung und Theilung des thierischen Eies. In Morphologisches Jahrbuch 1 (1876): 347-434, plus 4 plates (nos. X-XIII). Whole volume, 8vo. iv, 816pp. 27 plates (9 folding). 225 x 150 mm. Quarter morocco, marbled boards, circa 1876. Light rubbing. Occasional foxing, paper a bit toned, otherwise very good. From the library of embryologist / comparative anatomist Robert Wiedersheim (1848-1923; see G-M 183 and 343), with his signature on the front endpaper and occasional marginal marks probably by him. First Edition. Garrison-Morton 495. Hertwig's Habilitationsschrift paper, based on his study of fertilization in sea urchins, established the fact that fertilization consists of the union of the nuclei of a male and a female sex cell, and that only one spermatozoon is required to fertilize an egg. This latter finding had important implications for the study of heredity. Hertwig's paper marks an important conceptual advance, uniting the process of fertilization and the transfer of hereditary material with the nuclear theory of sexual reproduction. This copy is from the library of Robert Wiedersheim, best known for his role in establishing comparative anatomy as a discipline, and for his famous textbook on the subject (Vergleiche Anatomie der Wirbeltiere, 1883).

        On the illumination of lines of molecular pressure... bound with 3 other offprints (some presentation copies)

      London: Royal Society, 1876. Crookes, William (1832-1919). On the repulsion resulting from radiation. Parts III-IV. Offprint from Phil. Trans. 166 (1876). [325]-376pp. 2 plates, text illustrations. With: The Bakerian lecture. On the illumination of lines of molecular pressure and the trajectory of molecules. Offprint from Phil. Trans. 170 (1879). [2] 135-64pp. Chromolithographed plate, text diagrams. With: Contributions to molecular physics in high vacua. Offprint from Phil. Trans. 170 (1879). [2] 641-62pp. Text diagrams. Crookes' presentation inscription to John Fletcher Moulton on fragment of front wrapper. With: On the viscosity of gases and high exhaustions. With a note on the reduction of Mr. Crookes's experiments . . . by Professor G[eorge] G[abriel] Stokes. Offprint from Phil. Trans. (1881). [2] 387-446pp. 4 plates (3 fold.), text diagrams. Crookes' presentation inscription to Moulton on fragment of front wrapper. Together 4 offprints, 4to, bound in a single volume with two other works (see below). 296 x 225 mm. Half morocco c. 1883, rubbed, corners & extremities worn. Slight marginal browning, but fine. From the library of John Fletcher Moulton (1844-1921), with his bookplate. First Editions. The first of the offprints listed above deals with Crookes' earlier discovery of what he originally believed to be "light pressure" within a vacuum balance, as predicted by the corpuscular theory of light and Maxwell's electromagnetic theory. This phenomenon led him to invent the familiar four-vaned "light-mill" or radiometer; however, it was later found (by Johnstone Stoney) that the action of the radiometer was caused not by light pressure but by the internal movements of the molecules in the residual gas. Crookes had apparently not yet accepted Stoney's explanation when he wrote "On the repulsion resulting from radiation," since in paragraph 195 he speculates that the action of the radiometer is due to the absorption and radiation of heat. The remaining three offprints are from the series of research papers that Crookes began in 1878, investigating the possibility that the dark space coating the cathode in low-pressure electrical discharges (later named "Crookes' dark space") was somehow related to the layer of molecular pressure causing movement in the radiometer. "By attempting to determine the actual paths of 'lines of molecular pressure' on the analogy of Faraday's lines of magnetic force, Crookes came to work on the cathode rays, which until then had been the exclusive province of German experimentalists. An electric radiometer whose vanes acted as a cathode showed that the dark space separating the cathode from the cathode glow extended farther from the blackened side of the vane, and that only when the pressure was reduced to a point at which the dark space touched the sides of the radiometer tube did rotation occur. . . . With his thorough grounding in the experimentally difficult art of vacuum physics, Crookes laid the foundation for the fuller investigation by J. J. Thomson of the behavior of radiant matter in the discharge tube, showing, for example, that it induced phosphorescence in minerals like the diamond; that it caused the glass of the discharge tube to phosphoresce; that its stream could be deflected by a magnet; and, most important of all, that since it cast a shadow of an opaque object . . . it traveled in straight lines and was corpuscular in nature" (DSB). Twenty years later Thomson demonstrated that this radiant matter consisted of electrons. These four offprints by Crookes are from the library of John Fletcher Moulton, an eminent barrister, judge and amateur scientist whose electrical researches had won him a fellowship in the Royal Society. Moulton bound the offprints together with two other scientific works (one of which he co-authored), as follows: De la Rue, Warren (1815-89) & Muller, Hugo. Experimental researches on the electric discharge with the chloride of silver battery. Offprint, in 4 parts, from the Phil. Trans. 169 (1878) [parts 1-2]; 171 (1880) [part 3]; and 174 (1883) [part 4]. [2] 67 [1]; [2] 71-157 [1]; [2] 159-210; [2] 211-251pp. 10 plates (incl. port. of de la Rue), 3 lith. charts. 2-page "Uncorrected proof, exclusively for the use of the Fellows at the meeting of the Society" (1883), a follow-up to Part 4, bound in before that part's title. London: Royal Society, 1878-83. Author's presentation inscriptions to Moulton on fragments of front wrappers to parts 1, 2 & 4. Spottiswoode, William (1825-83) & Moulton, John Fletcher (1844-1921).

        THE HUNTING OF THE SNARK

      1876. An Agony, in Eight Fits. With Nine Illustrations by Henry Holiday. London: Macmillan and Co., 1876. Original buff cloth pictorially decorated in black, all page edges gilt. First Edition of this poetical nonsense tale, both funny and subtle, that "describes with infinite humour the impossible voyage of an improbable crew to find an inconceivable creature" [WM&G]. The crew consists of a Bellman, a Bonnet-Maker, a Barrister, a Broker, a Billiard-Maker, a Banker, a Butcher, a Baker, a Beaver and (the only one not illustrated) "a Boots." In his dedicatory verse to Gertrude Chataway, Carroll hid the child's name twice.~This is a clean, near-fine copy -- the light buff cloth has only very minor soil, and there is only very minor wear at the tips; there is a little light foxing on the title page (undoubtedly from the tissue guard), but the original endpapers are not cracked at all. In short, a desirable copy. Williams Madan & Green 115.

        ADDRESS OF THE McCLELLAN LEGION OF SAN FRANCISCO TO THE PEOPLE OF CALIFORNIA [caption title]

      [San Francisco? 1876].. Broadside, 11 3/4 x 7 1/4 inches. Old fold lines. Tanned. Lightly edgeworn, with a few small chips. Very good. A rare anti-Republican broadside from the election of 1876, addressed to the voters of California. General George McClellan, running as a Democrat, lost the 1864 election to Abraham Lincoln. A dozen years later the "McClellan Legion of San Francisco" continues the attack on Republican politicians and officeholders for bloating the federal payroll and for saddling the American people with debt. "Fifty thousand office holders have been added since the war; a large army of high salaried officials crowded into every department of Government to feed upon the people's treasury and their pay generally increased. Congress has repeatedly increased its own pay, and grabbed back pay, and while the income of the people has constantly been growing smaller, the income of the office holders has been increasing." Reconstruction policy is also criticized, as are Chinese immigration laws. Though not explicitly stated, the implicit solution to the problem is to vote Democratic in the forthcoming election of 1876 - a contest in which Democrats would argue that victory was stolen from their candidate, Samuel Tilden, in favor of the Republican, Rutherford B. Hayes. In the election, Hayes won California and its six electoral votes. No copies are listed in OCLC.

        The Effects of Cross and Self-Fertilisation in the Animal Kingdom

      London: John Murray,, 1876. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, boards blocked in blind, brown coated endpapers. Contemporary gift inscription to front blank. Cloth fresh save for minor rubbing at the extremities, very light spotting to edges of text block and title pages. A superb copy. First edition, with the three-line errata slip facing page viii. A beautiful copy, rare in such nice condition. Darwin's research on fertilisation in plants was an offshoot of his work on evolution and natural selection. To demonstrate that genetic variation gave organisms an advantage in the struggle for survival, he performed experiments demonstrating that self-fertilisation weakened plants in comparison with those that had been cross-fertilised. Darwin considered this volume to be a compliment to his 1862 book, Fertilisation of Orchids, though this one was more technical and the initial print run was low, with only 1500 copies selling in the first year.

        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.
