Ownership inscription of neurologist Henry Head (1861-1940), dated 1886, on verso of free endpaper and his signature on cover of last part. Ms. table of contents of the volume in Head’s hand on front free endpaper, and a full-page pencil doodle of a medieval knight on the last page of part XII also probably by him.First Edition. Neurologist Henry Head’s set of 18 facsicules of the treatise on electrophysiology written by Hering (6 parts) and his pupil Biedermann (12 parts) and published in the Sitz. der k. Akad. d. Wiss. A further five facsicules (nos. 19-23) were issued between 1886, when Head assembled this collection, and 1888.Hering, one of the foremost German physiologists of the 19th century, succeeded Purkyne at the German University of Prague, where he spent 25 years studying sensory physiology and electrical phenomena in nerve and muscle. Biedermann worked with Hering until 1888; and the above work is the record of their collaboration. 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'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'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.

La première édition de 1873 (imprimée à compte d'auteur et publiée par J. Gay et fils à Nice et A.

Fondateur de la revue Les hommes d'aujourd'hui, il a publié en 1882 un roman satirique à clefs, Dinah Samuel, dépeignant le salon de Nina de Villard, alias Charlotte de Valbaux, où apparaissent Charles Cros et Arthur Cimber (Arthur Rimbaud).

        The Times 1885

      ONT>October to December 1879 - An impressively large, heavycollection of The Times newspaper. Containing each daily issue ofThe Times between the 1st of July and the 30th of December, 1879. The Times is a British daily national newspaper, first published in London in 1785 under the title The Daily Universal Register (it became The Times on 1 January 1788). The Times is the first newspaper to have borne that name, lending it to numerous other papers around the world, including The Times of India (1838), The Straits Times (1845), The New York Times (1851) and The Irish Times (1859). It is sometimes referred to as the London Times or The Times of London for distinguishing purposes. The Times is the originator of the ubiquitous Times Roman typeface, originally developed by Stanley Morison of The Times in collaboration with the Monotype Corporation for its legibility in low-tech printing. These 19th century daily issues of The Times offer an interesting window into one of the most fascinating periods in the newspaper's history:In1853 The Times was the first newspaper to send war correspondents to cover particular conflicts. W. H. Russell, the paper's correspondent with the army in the Crimean War, was immensely influential with his dispatches back to England. Such correspondents are very much visible in these pages with detailed and precise reports from all over the world provided in each issue - offering aremarkable insight into British domestic andforeign affairs in the period. Those present in this collection include reports on the Anglo-Zulu war, most notably on the battle of Ulundi, which effectually ended the conflict, Alongside these may be found a plethora ofadvertisements, classifieds,obituaries, letters to the editor and weather reports. Very scarce. Condition: In a half calf binding with moire covered boards. Externally, worn. Wear is heaviest to extremities with some minorloss evident to corners and head and tail of spine. Small scuffs and marks to bopards in places. Some slight loss to backstrip. Front joint has previously failed but has been neatly and professionally repaired from the inside. Rear joint starting but has also been strengthened from the inside. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are ingood, cleancondition with spotting to the first few pages only, alongside justa fewscattered handling marks throughout. Overall: GOOD ONLY with a VERY GOOD interior.

Hardcover. 203 x 152 mm (8 x 6"). x, 315 pp. ANIMATED CONTEMPORARY LIGHT BROWN MOSAIC AND INTRICATELY GILT MOROCCO DONE IN AN UNUSUAL STYLE BY MUDIE (stamp-signed on verso of front free endpaper), covers with rows of flattened interlocking gilt circles punctuated by fleurons at intersections, the compartments formed by these circles containing either brown morocco with a small inlaid green morocco dot or else with inlaid red morocco enclosing a gilt lozenge; raised bands, spine gilt and inlaid in similar fashion, gilt titling, densely gilt turn-ins, all edges gilt. In a later velvet-lined folding cloth box. With three illustrated section titles, frequent floral wood-engraved decorations, and 12 chromolithographed plates (heightened with gum arabic) by the Baroness Helga von Cramm; original tissue guards. Half title somewhat foxed, intermittent very minor foxing elsewhere, but a bright, fresh copy internally, and THE BINDING IN NEARLY MINT CONDITION, entirely lustrous and unworn. This is a very attractive mosaic binding and a rare specimen from the studio of Christopher and Peter Mudie, noteworthy for its somewhat unusual circular design. According to Packer, the Mudies appear to have been a short-lived firm with limited production; he says that they are known to have worked from 1837-39 at 14 and then 15 St. Martin's Court (in St. Martin's Lane) and at 38 Princes Street, Soho. How the two were related is uncertain, but, in any case, they were undeniably quite skilled, based upon this example of their work. The author of the inspirational poetry contained here was Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-79), a popular poet, a writer of hymns, and an evangelical whose work was published in many separate volumes. Known for her Alpine scenery, Helga von Cramm (fl. 1874-1984) met Havergal in the French Alps and decided, in the latter's words, "to paint for Jesus.".

With 12 etchings after A. de Grijs by C.L. van Kesteren.* Original edition. - 'The etchings, as Ten Kate has stated, are more important from an artistic than from a strictly scientific point of view, but they at least serve to remind us of the work of a little known artist of Indonesia, A. de Grijs, whose drawings and paintings of Sumatra, Borneo and Java were the subjects of the etchings. Apart from the fact that De Grijs was the Padang agent of the Nederlandsche Handelmatschappij, little is known about him' (Bastin-Brommer p.47). Two leaves of letterpress accompany each plate. - Fine copy.Bastin-Brommer N 695; Haks & Maris p.107 and p.146. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

Evolution, old and new. xii, 384pp., plus 32-page publisher&#39;s catalogue. London: Hardwicke & Bogue, 1897. 191 x 126 mm. Original cloth stamped in gold and black, worn, shaken, front hinge split.

Leaf from Butler&#39;s autograph manuscript of this work tipped to front pastedown, containing 26 lines of text.</p><p>First Edition. Butler at first embraced Darwin&#39;s theory of evolution, then rejected its as being overly mechanistic. "The British writer Samuel Butler . . . countered Darwin&#39;s mechanical, Newtonian view of evolutionary laws operating on inert living matter, with the idea that life, far from being inert, has &#39;free will&#39; and has used it to influence its own evolution. . . . Butler believed that evolution was to a large extent controlled by its object, whereas Darwin believed that evolution was a blind force (and even chance) operating on its object. Darwin believed in design without a designer, Butler believed in design through distributed goal-driven behavior, through (indirect) cooperation" (internet reference).</p><p> Butler presented this copy of his work to his good friend, the Victorian artist and illustrator Henry Marriott Paget, noted in Henry Festing Jones&#39; biography of Butler.</p>

        ALS ("JBurckhardt").

      Basel, 16. VI. 1879. - Large 8vo. 3 pp. on double leaf. To his former student, the classicist Heinrich Gelzer (1847-1906), thanking him for a lecture. Burckhardt had wanted Gelzer to follow Nietzsche as professor of Greek at Basel: "[.] Es sind wesentliche neue Anschauungen in wahrhaft überzeugendem u glänzendem Zusammenhang ausgesprochen. Es sind endlich wieder Resultate, nachdem man in Schriften vieler guter u redlicher Leute immer nur Material, d. h. Schutt u. resp. Staub hat besehen u. schlucken müßen. In den Zeiten da ich noch Culturgesch[ichte] des Mittelalters las u. bald diesen bald jenen Byzantiner durchsah, dämmerte mir hie u. da Aehnliches, aber ich steckte noch im allgemeinen Vorurtheil drin. Über Kortüm freilich war mir ein Licht aufgegangen seit ich in seinem 'Mittelalter' (II, p. 506) die famose Stelle kannte, wo es heißt: Byzanz nahete raschen Schrittes seinem Verfall u. Untergang - worauf aber nur 6 Zeilen später wieder von einem 'langsamen Todeskampf' die Rede ist. Unsere Viri eruditi arbeiten wohl meist recht fleißig, aber schreiben thun sie manchmal gar zu schludrig u. das Geschriebene noch einmal zu überlesen, ehe es an den Setzkasten geht, ist noch immer nicht allgemeine deutsche Sitte [.] Wie gerne ich Sie bei Nietzsche's Abdication hier gehabt hätte, können Sie denken, aber ich verdenke es Ihnen nicht daß Sie in Ihrer jetzigen deutschen Laufbahn bleiben, aus welcher man ja nur einmal austreten kann, dann jedoch für immer. Wir hoffen nun an Jacob W. einen künftigen und redlichen Collegen zu erhalten, aber Sie wären uns natürlich gar viel erwünschter gewesen. Freilich ahne ich, daß Sie eine Fülle großer Aufgaben historischer Art vor Augen sehen, bei welchen Ihnen die hiesige Stellung eines Professors der Philologie gar zu hinderlich gewesen sein würde [.]". - Heinrich Gelzer had studied under Burckhardt for five semesters. After taking his degree in 1869, he taught in Basel and Heidelberg for several years before accepting the chair of Classics and Ancient History in Jena in 1878. Nietzsche resigned from his Basel chair of Greek in 1879; his successor was Jacob Wackernagel (1853-1938). - Slight edge defects. Printed in the Letters, vol. VII (1969), no. 812, p. 32f.
