        LA MÉTHODE GRAPHIQUE DANS LES SCIENCES EXPÉRIMENTALES.; ET PARTICULIÈREMENT EN PHYSIOLOGIE ET EN MÉDECINE

      Paris: G. Masson, 1878. First edition. 8vo., xix, 673 pp., errata, 348 illustrations from charts, graphs, and drawings. Publisher's red cloth, titled in black ink on the upper cover and spine. There is faint foxing on the foredge, a slight smudge to the red cloth near the lower corner of the front cover and slight creasing at the board tips only. A very good and bright copy. [with] Marey, E.J. LA MÉTHODE GRAPHIQUE DANS LES SCIENCES EXPÉRIMENTALES.... Augumenté d'un supplément sur LE DÉVELOPEMENT DE LA MÉTHODE GRAPHIQUE PAR LA PHOTOGRAPHIE. Paris: G. Masson, 1885. Deuxième Tirage. 8vo., [iii], xix, 673 pp., errata, 383 illustrations; [supplement] vi, [i], 52 pp., 35 illustrations. Original printed wrappers which are lacking a portion from the front panel with the partial loss of a single letter "L" from the title; scattered foxing and minor wear. Marey pioneered the use of graphic recording systems and devices, many of his own manufacture, to record data that was not possible merely by observation. He applied his methodology to the respiratory, circulatory and musculature systems, the study of human and animal locomotion, etc., notating in detail his findings and the sources from which he built upon. He conceived "of the body as an animate machine run by a complex motor whose functions could be reduced to the newly discovered laws of thermodynamics - Marey chose to study the body's most manifest form of energy: movement." The implications of his work "changed how the working body was conceived and how it was represented in both the social and aesthetic domains. He provided a scientific basis for developing the endurance of the soldier, and for the creation of a national physical education program in France. His instruments were used to analyze worker's movements and even to rationalize a physiological basis for psychology." see: Braun, Marta, ENCYCLOPEDIA OF NINETEENTH-CENTURY PHOTOGRAPHY, p. 890 - 891. It was these graphic methods that lead Marey to his invention of the chronophotograph, the precursor of cinematography, which he enumerates and illustrates in his important supplement to the second edition.

        Etching: "Windsor"

      1878 - 13 x 17-1/2 inches (image size). Haden qualified as a doctor and practised medicine with great success (Queen Victoria was a patient of his). He found that etching, while still an amateur, helped discipline his hand for surgery. He owned a considerable collection of Rembrandt etchings and was a connoiseur of Old Master prints. His brother-in-law was James Abbot McNeill Whistler who influenced him in pursuing his art professionally. They worked together for a while but differences in temperament drove them apart. Although he etched portraits in his early years, he later became one of the best landscape etchers of the time. He was a founder member of the Royal Society of Etchers and Engravers and tirelessly promoted prints as original works of art. He frequently visited Paris and greatly admired the etchings of Charles Meryon. Matted, framed, and glazed. Signed in pencil by the artist on the mount 13 x 17-1/2 inches (image size)

Though in 1853 he was consecrated bishop of Upper Michigan, he continued his hands-on work among the natives until his death in 1868, making a study of the Chippewa (a.k.a. Ojibwa) language and producing, in addition to this dictionary, a grammar, a catechism, a volume of sermons, and a volume of devotional meditations.

        SOMETHING BETTER.

      Boston: Boston: Lee and Shepard, Publishers, 1878., 1878. First edition. First edition. 12mo. Original red cloth, advertisements on endpapers, 232 pp. plus 8 pages of advertisements. Book title four of six books published as the "Sparkling Series" of the publisher's many book publications. Presents Detective Gabriel Gooch, in a book published in the same year as THE LEAVENWORTH CASE written by Anna Katharine Green. Although Detective Gooch appears in only three chapters, he is somewhat unusual, "If Marcus Graves committed an error in placing his case unreservedly in the hands of Detective Gooch, that worthy made a great mistake when he adopted the profession of detective. He was singularly unqualified for that calling...." Gabriel Gooch sounds like a parody of "Ebenezer Gryce" in THE LEAVENWORTH CASE. Lyle H. Wright's third volume of his bibliography on Fiction, Wright 111-5071 cites two copies of the book, one copy in the Huntington Library and the other copy at the Library of Congress. OCLC cites four copies, Huntington Library, Library of Congress, Ohio State, and Yale University. Not listed in any of the standard reference books, such as Hubin, Barzun & Taylor, etc. Some minor spotting to the cloth, else a very good, tight copy.

        Max Klinger: Endzeitliche Landschaft (Originalzeichnung)

      1878 - Tuschfeder- und Pinselzeichnung auf Papier 46 x 29,5 cm Rechts unten signiert Rechts unten außerhalb bezeichnet „Bl. VI.“ Provenienz: - Julius Gustav Böhler, München - Privatsammlung Max Klinger hat sich in allen Schaffensphasen als Zeichner, Maler und Grafiker mit dem Thema Landschaft auseinandergesetzt. Nur selten gibt er reale Orte wieder, vielmehr beschreiben seine imaginären Landschaftsdarstellungen seelische Zustände bzw. stellen die Frage nach dem Dasein und Schicksal des Menschen. In Klingers zeichnerischem Frühwerk der 1870er Jahre, auf dessen Grundlage weite Teile seines späteren Oeuvres basieren, hat die Landschaft eine zentrale Stellung. Charakteristisch sind tektonisch komponierte Bildräume mit chiffrenartigen Elementen voller Symbolgehalt. Lebensbedrohliche Gefahren lauern vor allem in Werken mit Bergmotivik auf den Menschen, wofür die 1874/77 entstandenen Zeichnungen Wanderers Ende (Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig. Inv.-Nr.: Nl.2511/6) und Der Tod in der Gebirgseinöde (Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig. Inv.-Nr.: Nl.2534) typische Beispiele sind. Zerklüftet, leer und ausweglos erscheint die Szenerie, in der der Tod in Gestalt eines aasenden Geiers bzw. lachenden Sensenmannes wartet. Bei der Endzeitlichen Landschaft hat Klinger auf symbolisch konnotierte Figuren verzichtet. Von erhöhtem Standpunkt aus blickt der Betrachter auf eine weite felsige Einöde, die am Horizont von einem steil aufragenden Gebirge begrenzt wird. Diesem entspringt ein sich in mäandernden Bahnen dahinziehender Fluss, welcher sich hier und dort zu kleinen Seen staut, um schließlich in eine Schlucht zu stürzen. Als Lebensader der Natur ist er kaum zu deuten, denn nur schemenhaft sind im Hintergrund einzelne Bäume zu sehen. Auch der umgestürzte Baumstamm im Vordergrund mit seinem krallenartig aufragenden Geäst wirkt wie ein unheilvolles Omen und lässt an der Lebensfeindlichkeit der Gegend keinen Zweifel. Von monumental-düsterer Stimmung beherrscht, ist die Endzeitliche Landschaft ein charakteristisches Beispiel für Klingers frühvollendete Zeichenkunst. Wie ein Leitmotiv durchziehen vergleichbare Seelenlandschaften seine ersten grafischen Zyklen Radierte Skizzen (1879), Eva und die Zukunft (1880) sowie Intermezzi (1881), die ihm bereits in jungen Jahren zu internationalem Ruhm verhelfen. Vergleichbare Arbeiten befinden sich in wichtigen öffentlichen Sammlungen von Klingers Werk (Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig, Kupferstich-Kabinett Dresden und Kupferstichkabinett Berlin) und sind auf dem Kunstmarkt äußerst selten.

        Adams' Synchronological Chart Or Map of History: A Chronological Chart of Ancient, Modern, And Biblical History

      Colby & Co., 1878. Third edition of 12,000. I am not completely clear regarding how the book was originally issued. But as of now, the chart is detached from the covers and the covers are detached at the spine. The chart is generally very good with wear to the hinges. The covers appear bound in leather and are deteriorating at the spine, corners and edges. Still, a good example of a very scarce artifact.. Third Edition. Hard Cover. Good.

Octavo, original red cloth. $1500.First edition of this work on money supply and international bimetallism, in original cloth.In this widely influential series of lectures Walker addresses the money supply question, a topic of vital importance during an era of continued industrial expansion. Money, Walker argues, includes banknotes and anything else used as a medium of exchange. He urges countries to adopt the system of international bimetallism (the use of silver and gold) as the truest path towards fiscal responsibility. In addition to these and other theoretical contributions, Walker helped to systematize and greatly improve the teaching of economics while president of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. ""Unquestionably the most prominent and best known of American [economic] writers"" (F.W. Tausig, quoted in DAB X:343-44). Bookplate.Interior quite nice, only minor rubbing and soiling to cloth. A near-fine copy.
