      . . Thomas Mann bedankt sich sehr persönlich bei dem österr. Schriftsteller, und Diplomaten Paul Zifferer (1879-1929) in Paris: "Lieber Herr Zifferer, ich bin tief gerührt [im Original unterstrichen] von der Mühe, die Sie sich gegeben haben. Ihren Brief neben mir, fühle ich mich viel sicherer, und was ich nicht brauche, wird doch 'hinter der Szene spuken' wie F o n t a n e sagte. Ein erster Abschnitt der 'Re c h e n s c h a f t ' soll im Maiheft der R u n d s c h a u [ Die Neue Rundschau'] erscheinen. / Ihnen und Ihrer Gattin alles Liebe / Ihr T. M." [im Original unterstrichen]. - // - Th. Mann hatte sich im Januar neun Tage als inoffizieller Kulturbotschafter Deutschland in den Zeiten der französichen Rheinlandbesetzung in Paris aufgehalten. Dort lernte er Zifferer kennen, den er offenbar gebeten hat, ihn für seinen "Pariser Rechenschaftsbericht" mit Informationen zu versorgen. - Die Resselgasse im Wiener Stadtteil Essling wurde 1955 in Zifferergasse umbenannt, um den ehemaligen Feuilletonredakteur der "Neuen Freien Presse" (Wien) und Diplomaten Paul Zifferer zu ehren. Dieser war und zur Zeit unserer Karte Hofrat an der österreichischen Gesandtschaft in Paris. In Wien gehörte er zum Freundeskreis Schnitzlers und Hofmannsthals. - Thomas Manns Erzählung "Pariser Rechenschaft" erschien erstmals in drei Fortsetzungen in der Neuen Rundschau', der literarischen Monatszeitschrift des Fischer Verlags von 1926 und wurde 1964 sogar als Band 815 der Insel-Bücherei gedruckt. - Ecken etwas knittrig. Schwacher Wasserfleck unter dem Unterstrich der Unterschrift, sonst gut. - In der Woche bis zum 12. 10. stelle ich auf der Frankfurter Antiquariatsmesse (Halle 6.0) aus. - Deshalb kann ich Ihre Bestellungen erst ab dem 13. Oktober bearbeiten. - DANKE FÜR IHRE FREUNDLICHE GEDULD!

Building upon this work, Biedermann published his Elektrophysiologie (G-M 644) in 1895; this was the first exhaustive work on the subject, superseding Du Bois-Reymond&#39;s Untersuchungen uber thierische Elektrizitat (1848) as the master text on electrophysiology. The English neurologist Henry Head, best known as the subject of the experiment described in his and W. H. R. Rivers&#39;s "A human experiment in nerve division" (Garrison-Morton 1302; see also G-M 1298-99 & 1304), also studied under Hering at Prague from 1884 to 1886; given the date of his ownership inscription, he may have received this collection of offprints from Biedermann as a parting gift.

        Uber Spinalganglien und Ruckenmark des Petromyzon

      1879. Freud, Sigmund (1856-1939). Uber Spinalganglien und Ruckenmark des Petromyzon. In Sitzb. der k. Akad. d. Wissenschaften, 3 Abth., 78 (1879): 81-167. 4 plates by F. Schima after Freud. Whole volume, 8vo. v, [1], 289pp. Plates. 244 x 156 mm. (uncut & unopened). Original printed wrappers. Slight foxing but fine. <p>First Edition. Freud&#39;s third paper published as a medical student continued his research on the large Reissner cells in the spinal cord of the fish Petromyzon, which he had undertaken at the direction of the eminent physiologist Ernst Brucke, under whom he was studying. Freud determined these cells to be "nothing else than spinal ganglion cells which, in these low vertebrates. . . remain within the spinal cord." Freud was aided in this research by his improved methods of tissue preparation: "By the use of a gold maceration technique it was possible to make a complete survey of the spinal ganglia of Petromyzon" (Freud, Standard Edition III, p. 229).</p><p> Freud made a major contribution to evolutionary biology by showing that the spinal ganglion cells of Petromyzon, which "exhibit every transition between bipolarity and unipolarity" (ibid.), represent a transition between the bipolar cells of lower and the unipolar cells of higher vertebrates. He also, in these early researches, took some first steps toward the theory of the neuron, as noted by Freud&#39;s biographer Peter Gay:</p><p>Some of Freud&#39;s earliest published papers, written between 1877 and 1883, detail findings that are far from trivial. They substantiate evolutionary processes revealed in the nervous structures of the fish he was examining under his microscope. What is more, it becomes clear in retrospect that these papers form the first link in the chain of ideas leading to the draft of a scientific psychology he would attempt in 1895. Freud was working toward a theory specifying the ways that nerve cells and nerve fibrils function as a unit. But he moved on to other investigations, and when, in 1891, H. W. G. Waldeyer published his epoch-making monograph on the "neuron" theory, Freud&#39;s pioneering research was ignored. "It was not the only time," Ernest Jones has noted, "that Freud narrowly missed world fame in early life through not daring to pursue his thoughts to their logical-and not far off-conclusion" (Gay, Freud: A Life for our Time, p. 36).</p><p>Freud&#39;s paper was submitted to the Sitzb. der k. Akad. d. Wissenschaften in 1878 and printed in the June-December volume for that year, published in 1879. The offprint of Freud&#39;s paper is dated 1878. Grinstein 34. Jones I, pp. 52-53. Standard Edition 1878a. Norman F3. </p>

        History of the Donner Party. A Tragedy of the Sierras

      Crowley & McGlashan, Truckee, California 1879 - Octavo. . . McGlashan was born in Wisconsin and was only two years old when his family came to California, making him a contemporary in age and experience with the younger children in the Donner party. He settled in Truckee, California, in 1871 where he became an attorney, a publisher, writer and an inventor. His book was by far the most informed account of its time of the Donner Party. It was the first serious attempt to consult authorative sources, weigh evidence, collect detached episodes into an organized whole, and extend the story of the Donner Party from a sensational incident to an important chapter in California history.

        Autograph letter signed to Mr. [John] Paget

      London, 1879. <p>Carpenter, William B. (1813-85). Autograph letter signed to Mr. [John] Paget [1811-98]). [London] 56 Regents Part Rd. N.W., June 2, 1879. 4pp. 178 x 114 mm. A few tiny pin-holes, but fine otherwise.</p><p>From English physiologist and naturalist William B. Carpenter, who "helped shape the modern life sciences in Britain (Oxford DNB) through both his writings and his work as a teacher and administrator at what is now the University of London. Carpenter performed valuable researches in marine zoology, and was directly influential in persuading the British Admiralty to sponsor the Challenger expedition, the first major scientific study of the deep oceans. Carpenter is also recognized as one of the founders of the modern theory of the adaptive unconscious-he observed that the human perceptual system and the mechanism of human thought operates almost completely outside of conscious awareness. </p><p>Carpenter&#39;s letter, which discusses a false confession to murder made by a mentally unbalanced young man, reads in part as follows:</p><p>Dear Mr. Paget, In turning out my papers at the University today, I have come upon a document which I forward to you, containing the Father&#39;s statement of his Son&#39;s relation to the "Brompton Murder" case, with full particulars of the latter&#39;s confession, and its inconsistency with the facts. </p><p>I believe that I did not send in this to the Home Secy.; but that what I specially urged upon him was the evidence with which Knowles had supplied me, of the "cracky" nature of the youth&#39;s mind, and of the obviously hereditary tendency to brood, as shown in the father and aunt-the latter an old servant of Knowles. And I remember also that there was evidence of the youth having had money in the Savings Bank, and of his having drawn out a pound just before the Crystal Palace Police Fête.</p><p>This altogether made so strong an impression on Mr. Bruce, that he at once commuted the sentence; and the family were so sensible that the lad was not fit to take care of himself, that they expressed no disappointment at his not having received a free pardon. . . .</p><p>Carpenter&#39;s correspondent was the police magistrate and author John Paget, whose Paradoxes and Puzzles, published in 1874, included accounts of a number of sensational crimes. We have not been able to identify the murder case to which Carpenter refers in his letter.</p>

"I take an interest in the collections of all kinds made during the "Challenger" voyage, that I took a large share myself in the bringing together of the collections. since it was not considered expedient to attach a Botanist to the.

        Grand Canyon - Yavapai Point

      - Gunnar Widforss (1879-1934) Grand Canyon - Yavapai Point Watercolor on paper Paper size: 18 3/4&#148; x 23 1/2&#148; Frame size: 22 1/2&#148; x 27 7/8&#148; Signed l.l.: Widforss Provenance: Thelma Kieckhefer gift to Pheonix Art Museum, Phoenix, Arizona (Accession No. 94.371) In this delicate and deeply atmospheric depiction of the Grand Canyon, we are at once reminded of the works of William R. Leigh (1866-1955) and Thomas Moran (1837-1926). A contemporary of both artists, Gunnar Widforss, captures the overwhelming expanse of the Grand Canyon's broad vistas. Poised on the canyon rim, Widforss includes the near and far, and the barren beauty of the rocks as the sun and shadow fall upon them. His watercolor is an impressive attempt to capture the wonders and natural beauty of the site. Gunnar Widforss lived and worked at the Grand Canyon for many years producing a body of work prized for its artistic excellence and geologic detail. At the age of 42, he came to the United States from his native Sweden. He was already recognized as an accomplished artist and at the encouragement of Stephen Mather, the National Park Service's first director, the artist visited and painted several western national parks. In 1924 seventy-two of his watercolors were exhibited at the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C. After the diagnosis of an illness that prohibited Widforss from living at the high altitude of Grand Canyon Village, he returned to the canyon for one final visit in 1934. Stricken with a heart attack, he died at the early age of fifty-four. However, the artist's work, well-known throughout the United States at the time of his death, continues to influence the style of contemporary artists.

      London: Macmillan and Co, 1879. FIRST EDITION. 1 volume, original publisher&#39;s blind stamped red cloth over card, title gilt to front cover, inner and outer hinges fine, Harry Elkins Widner&#39;s copy with his bookplate on the front pastedown, a VERY GOOD copy. It was first called "Word Links", but the word "doublets" was in use from the first. It consists in connecting two doublets (words with the same number of letters, usually 3, 4, or 5) by links in which each word differs from the preceding one by one single letter only, as HEAD, heal, teal, tell, tall, TAIL. The chain in which there are fewest links gains the highest marks. The game became very popular in private circles.

        Striped Bass

      Charles Scribner's Sons, New York 1879 - Among the finest 19th century images of American sporting fish Samuel A. Kilbourne, a native of Bridgetown, Maine, was an accomplished painter of natural history subjects when he decided, in 1858, to specialize in painting fish. He was extremely successful and, as the plates in this work testify, very proficient in his work. The Game Fishes. was his greatest accomplishment, and has been described as having 'the most beautiful fish plates published in this country' (Bennett). A reviewer writing in The Century magazine in 1882 wrote of Kilbourne's depictions: "Mr. Kilbourne has succeeded in a difficult task. He has succeeded in uniting in his delineation the accuracy in details of form and coloring required by the naturalist, with that freedom of style, delicacy of handling, and naturalness of surroundings demanded by the artist." The images are landscape portraits in native habitats, printed in color and mounted on card, suitable for framing. Bennett, p.65; McGrath, p.196; Litchfield 52; Brun G94; Nissen ZBI 1630; Howell 53-325; BMNH, p.973; Gee, p.91; Westwood & Satchell, Bibliotheca Piscatoria , p.107.
