        The Native Tribes of South Australia. With an introductory chapter by J. D. Woods. The Native Tribes of South Australia. With an introductory chapter by J. D. Woods

      Adelaide: E. S. Wigg & Son, 1879. Octavo, with eight tinted lithographic plates (including frontispiece), front endpaper and title pages signed 'H.J. Hillier'; a good copy in original cloth, scuffed and expertly rebacked retaining gilt decorated backstrip, likewise fore-edge margin of frontispiece expertly repaired. Annotated by a teacher from the Hermannsburg mission. The Native Tribes of South Australia prints five essays on different tribes contributed by various authors including the Reverend George Taplin, and the Reverend C.W. Schürmann (also include is a native vocabulary by John Ogilvie Bennett).This copy is from the collection of Henry James Hillier (1875-1958), a schoolteacher at the Hermannsburg mission school. Hillier had a good knowledge of the Dieri and Aranda languages, and was also an experienced inland traveller who accompanied the 1901-1902 expedition led by J. W Gregory. The numerous ethnological and linguistic observations pencilled in the margins throughout this copy reflect long working relationships with the Carl Strehlow and other anthropologists of the time. Hillier was also an active ethnological collector who enriched the British Museum holdings of central desert artefacts, and an amateur water-colourist of some skill.

        A Study of the so-called Tendon-Reflex Phenomena.

      - Med.-Chir. Trans., 62. - Published by the Medical and Chirurgical Society. London, J.E.Adlard, 1879, 8°, (2), 37, (1) pp., Halbeleinband im Stil der Zeit; St.a.Tit. First Edition - Rare author's offprint! - "The examination of the deep tendon reflex began in 1875 with the recognition by Wesphal and Erb independently that muscular contraction follows the mechanical stimulation of a tendon. Although this phenomenon had been previously noted, its relationship to neurological disease was first pointed out by Erb and Westphal. Erb regarded this phenomenon as a simple reflex, but Westphal thought that the knee-jerk depended on a direct excitation of the muscle, which was maintained in a state of tonus through reflex influences. - The most important of the tendon reflexes was the knee-jerk, which was termed the knee-phenomenon by Westphal, patellar tendon-reflex by Erb, and knee-jerk or myotatic reflex by Gowers. The importance of the ankle-jerk or Achilles tendon phenomena was soon recognized too, particularly its association with ankle clonus. The other tendon reflexes, including the biceps, triceps, radial reflexes and jaw jerk, were also described. - The method of eliciting the tendon reflexes was carefully described. Sir William Richard Gowers (1845-1915) suggested obtaining the knee jerk by a blow to the tendon given with the side of the hand or edge of the stethoscope. . - The examination of the reflexes was introduced into British neurology in 1878 by Grainger Stewart and Buzzard, and the importance of the tendon reflexes was gradually recognized by all neurologists. - It was not until the generation following Charcot and Gowers that the notion of the clinical syndrome, of hyperreflexia, spasticity, absent cutaneous reflexes, weakness and an extensor plantar response, became the hallmark of pyramidal or cortical-spinal tract disease."L.C.

Holden was a Wesleyan missionary who opened the first Methodist church in Durban in 1850, also the author of some of the most valuable early histories of the region. Miss Ayliff was almost certainly one of the four daughters of John Ayliff, settler and missionary.

      London: Bickers and Son, 1, Leicester Square, 1879 - John Evelyn (1620-1706) was a pioneering writer on tree cultivation and botanical subjects, translator of Naudé's Advis pour dresser une bibliotheque (Instructions Concerning Erecting of a Library, 1661), and a man of wide-ranging correspondence. His diaries are now one of the standard sources for late seventeenth century English life.

Volume I includes a partly printed document, a warrant for 1,000 pounds for Thomas Littleton & Thomas Osborne, signed over by them (Osborne twice), in 1671.

        A Journal Of My Visit To England, Ireland and Scotland

      John Collins, St. John, NB / Collinsville 1879 - 236 pages. By no means a standard travel narrative; all events of the journey that are mentioned are directly related to theological discourse. This reads like a very long tract; the author was a Methodist preacher. Born in 1798, the author emmigrated from Ireland to New Brunswick in 1843 and settled Collinsville (now Garnett Settlement). This book was prepared after Collins "came home from my visit to my native land, Ireland, and to Scotland, my forefathers' birthplace, and to England, where many of the branches of the family are now scattered - and came back to my adopted land, Saint John, New Brunswick - a place ever near and dear to my heart - in symmetry and oneness with the land where I was twice born - human and divine." Scarce: Worldcat records only one copy [Acadia], ESTC none. Curling to corners, light soiling to a few pages but generally very good, the thin wraps have survived exceptionally well.

        DICK SANDS: or the Boy Captain.

      Charles Scribner's Sons,, New York: 1879 - First fully illustrated US edition with 94 illustrations--including frontispiece, title page illustration, and one map--91 of which are full-page plate engravings by Meyer and Barbant. There are 92 plates referenced in the "List of Illustrations" but, as in some other copies of this edition, the illustration listed for page 201 is not present (there is text on that page). Pale yellow endpapers, red cloth binding ornately decorated in black and gilt, with illustrations on front and spine. Flaking to the cloth and small hole to front endpaper due to insect damage, which is too bad as it is otherwise about very good with some light soiling but gilt bright, hinges cracked but binding still tight, light foxing to endpapers, contemporary gift inscription on front endpaper, etc. A relatively attractive copy despite the wear.

        Cousin Henry (2 vols)

      London:: Chapman and Hall,, 1879.. First edition.. Hardcover. G+. Vol I: viii, 219pp, (i), (3) adverts; Vol II: viii, 222pp, (i). Half titles present. Front pastedown bears a 1945 gift inscription to the author Joyce Cary, from whose library this came. Nicely printed on good paper, but showing clear signs of use - minor soiling to many pages, some straightened dog-ear creases, and a few pencilled comments, which I have left for their possible interest. Some foxing in the latter part of Vol II. In the original binding of light blue cloth, front blocked in black, lower board in blind, and spine in gilt. Rather dulled and soiled, with brighter area on the upper board of each, presumably formerly protected by a library label, long since removed, and an area on the lower board of Vol II where there may have been a spill. Very scarce. Good firm copy.
