        Eigenh. Brief mit U. Sindelsdorf, 9. XI. 1910. 8°. 2 1/4 Seiten.

      . . An den Verleger und Kunsthistoriker Reinhard Piper (1879-1953) in München. - Er bedankt sich "für die Sendung der 40 M u. die versprochenen Exemplare der Cezanne u. van Gogh; ich bin auf beide sehr neugierig. [...] Hier beginn ich mich bereits für den Winter einzurichten. Meine Bilder stehen seit langem ohne Sonne . Ich lese jetzt mit größtem Interesse eine Korrespondenz von Ingres [...] mit vielen Zeichnungen u. Entwürfen Ingres' illustriert. Ich denke dabei zuweilen an Ihren Verlag; hatten Sie nicht Lust, einmal einen Band Ingres mit Zeichnungen (nicht Bildern) von ihm herauszugeben? Ich glaube, die Sachen müßten eine fabelhafte Überraschung in Deutschland hervorrufen; vom Zeichner Ingres hat man hier keine Ahnung." - Die untere Hälfte des zweiten Blatts mit Bleistiftskizzen von Reinhard Piper, ein Pferd u. zwei Hunde darstellendend. - Die Rückseite des zweiten Blatts mit Bleistiftvermerken, ebenso Seite 1 (teils radiert). Knickfalten.

        Meyers Konversations-Lexikon. Eine Enzyklopädie des allgemeinen Wissens, 3. Auflage in 16 Bänden, Prachtausgabe in Kalbleder im Großformat (Ausstellungsexponat des Verlages auf der Berliner Gewerbe-Ausstellung 1879)

      Leipzig, Bibliographisches Institut, 1879.. Dritte gänzlich umgearbeitete Auflage. Das Hauptwerk umfasst circa 70.000 Artikel, knapp 400 Stahlstich-, Holzstich- oder lithographierte Tafeln (geografische Karten sowie naturwissenschaftliche und technologische Bildertafeln), außerdem 1.460 eigens für das Lexikon gezeichnete Textabbildungen. Vollständiges Exemplar in 16 Bänden (A - Z) einschließlich Register im 16. Band (Ergänzungsbände erschienen zu dieser Ausgabe nicht). Schwarze Original-Halblederbände in hochwertiger Kalbleder-Qualität mit handvergoldeten Rückentiteln und goldgeprägten Ornamentbändern an den Kapitalen. Deckel in anthrazitfarbenem Leinen und mit Lederecken. Buchschnitt mit filigraner, mehrfarbiger Marmorierung. Angeboten wird hier die vom Bibliographischen Institut 1879 herausgebrachte legendäre Prachtausgabe in Kalbleder in vergrößertem Format, mit welcher der Verlag national und international seine besondere Buchkunst demonstrieren wollte. In seiner Monographie zur Geschichte des Bibliographischen Instituts schreibt Heinz Sarkowski* zur 3. Auflage: "Wer es sich leisten konnte, subskribierte auf fertige Bände, die in Leinen 9,50 Mark und in Halbleder 10 Mark kosteten. Und wer sich etwas ganz Besonderes leisten konnte, entschied sich für die Pracht-Ausgabe'. Diese breitrandige Ausgabe war auf holzfreiem Papier gedruckt und hatte ein vergrößertes Format von 18,8 x 26,4 cm. In Kalbleder kosteten die sechzehn Bände 240 Mark." Auf der Berliner Gewerbe-Ausstellung 1879 trat der Verlag mit dieser Ausgabe auf - und zwar nur mit dieser Ausgabe. Mit ihr allein glaubte der Verlag, sein hohes bibliophiles und kunstgewerbliches Niveau hinreichend unter Beweis stellen zu können. Verlagsinhaber Hermann Julius Meyer selbst entwickelte die Marketing-Strategie für das Glanzstück seines Hauses. Dazu noch einmal Sarkowski: "Hiernach waren als mögliche Kunden anzusprechen: 1. Die Aristokraten des Geschmacks. 2. Die Aristokraten des Standes. 3. Die Aristokraten des Geldes.' ... Mit diesem Lexikon, dem ersten Objekt, das im neuen Leipziger Betrieb hergestellt worden war, hatte sich der Verlag neben Brockhaus die Spitzenposition unter den deutschen Lexikonverlegern erobert." *Heinz Sarkowski, das Bibliographische Institut. Verlagsgeschichte und Bibliographie 1826 - 1976, Mannheim etc. 1976.. Sehr guter Zustand. Das weiche Leder noch frisch wirkend und ein angenehmes Handgefühl vermittelnd, kaum berieben. Alle Gelenke (außen und innen) der schweren Großbände intakt. Wenige Kapitale etwas berieben, Kapitalläsion des 11. Bandes fachmännisch instandgesetzt. Wenige Ecken etwas bestoßen. Goldprägung des 16. Bandes etwas abgerieben (Ursache dürfte eine etwas zu flache Titel-Einprägung bei diesem Band sein). Innenzustand tadellos, Seiten frisch und fleckenfrei, wie neu. In toto sehr gutes Exemplar dieser legendären Prachtausgabe im Großformat, die wie keine andere die Buchkunst des Bibliographischen Instituts widerspiegelt.

        On stresses in rarefied gasses arising from inequalities of temperature.

      . London, The Royal Society, 1879 [1880]. 4to. 26 pp. (for the paper) in 446 pp. (for the volume). Original printed wrappers.* The Scottish physicist and mathematician James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) is world-famous for demonstrating that light, electricity and magnetism are manifestations of the same phenomenon, all based on the underlying electromagnetic field. This was the first major step in uniting the forces of nature into one theory. Later, he turned his attention to thermodynamics, and the present work is his last but not least contribution to this subject, published in the year he died, at the early age of 48. Here, he introduced the notion of "thermal transpiration" which causes the movement in Crookes radiometer; or "light mill", a near vacuum bulb with a set of vanes which are mounted on a spindle, and still a popular novelty item today because of its "perpetuum mobile" like behaviour: the vanes rotate when exposed to light, with faster rotation for more intense light, providing a quantitative measurement of electromagnetic radiation intensity. The reason for the rotation has historically been a cause of much scientific debate (Wikipedia), but with this paper Maxwell actually "won" this debate, showing that a molecular phenomenon lies at its base, and that a supposed "light force" could not be responsible. Part of the Philosophical Transactions for the year MDCCCLXXIX (volume 170, part I). Uncut, partly unopened. Spine skilfully repaired. Some light soiling, otherwise a very good clean copy..

        Chirurgie de guerre. Manuel de pansements et d'opérations. Traduit par le Dr Rouge (de Lausanne).

      Hanovre, Charles Rümpler, 1879 - Hanovre, Charles Rümpler, 1879 ; in-8, XX, 316 pp., 30 planches chromolithographiées et 536 figures gravées sur bois dans le texte ; demi-chagrin rouge de l'époque, dos à nerfs ornés d'une roulette dorée, rousseurs éparses sur certains feuillets (essentiellement marginales), bon exemplaire. Première édition française, peu courante, de cet ouvrage richement illustré. Il remporta le concours destiné à récompenser le meilleur Manuel de chirurgie de guerre, organisé à l'exposition universelle de Vienne au profit de la Croix-Rouge (jury composé de Billroth, Langenbeck et Socin). Il est divisé en deux parties : pansements (pp. 1-111) et opérations (narcose chloroformique, ligatures artérielles, transfusion, amputations, désarticulations, résections articulaires, resection de la voûte du crâne, extraction de corps étrangers, thoracentèse, .). Cette édition comporte une préface du traducteur (pp. VII-XV) exposant les derniers travaux portant sur le pansement des plaies (travaux de Guérin, Pasteur, .). Cet ouvrage a paru la même année à Paris, chez J.B. Baillière (édition sans doute partagée). Frédéric Esmarch (1823-1908) fut professeur de chirurgie à l'université de Kiel. Il fut un grand chirurgien militaire et un pionnier de la médecine d'urgence et de catastrophe. Esmarch est cité deux fois par Garrison & Morton pour des articles antérieurs. Il a en effet introduit le pansement de premier secours (mouchoir triangulaire porté par chaque soldat en campagne) et proposé un bandage (tourniquet) pour diminuer le saignement dans la chirurgie des membres. Cette méthode d'exsanguination artificielle d'Esmarch fut rapidement adopté en Europe, et la bande d'Esmarch a été très utilisée jusqu'à la fin du XXe siècle. Esmarch décrit aussi, l'un des premiers, la manoeuvre de subluxation de la mâchoire, pour éviter l'étouffement par la langue dans les anesthésies. Ces différentes innovations sont décrites dans cet ouvrage. Esmarch eut de plus le mérite de souscrire pleinement à la méthode antiseptique de Lister. Il n'existe pas de traduction anglaise. Cf. Beyer & Dick, Johann Friedrich August von Esmarch _ a pioneer in the field of emergency and disaster medicine, Resuscitation, 2001, 50, 131-133; Gabriel & Metz, Between flesh and steel : a history of military medicine, p. 136, 183.

Walthall who was assisting him in preparing ìThe Rise and Fall of the Confederate Government,î critiquing his late ex brother-in-law Gen. Richard Taylorís new book re Gen. John Bell Hood ñ ìquite wrong as to the orders under which Beauregard went to the South and the purpose I expected him to promote ÿ beyond the stage at which the pursuit of Sherman was feasible, I was one of those who wished more than was expected from the invasion of Tenn ÿ . How did Bgd. abandon the Army after joining itÿî

      Beauvoir, Mississippi May 26, 1879 Important Autograph Letter, not signed, 3p, 5.5î x 8î front & verso on two conjoined sheets. Beauvoir, May 26 [1879]. To Major [William T.] Walthall. Docketed on verso of third page ìPres. Davis / Mem. for Gen. Hood / 26 May 1879î by Walthall. Mended on verso of lower blank area on third page. Fine condition. Headed ìMemoî by Jefferson Davis, completely in his hand, but not signed. At the time, Major William T. Walthall (1820-1899) was assisting Davis in the preparation of ìThe Rise and Fall of the Confederate Governmentî (New York: D. Appleton and Company, 1881) and this was information Davis wanted Walthall to have. Journalist William T. Walthall joined the Confederate States Army in 1861 and, by the end of the War, had risen to the rank of Major. After the War, Walthall was editorial writer for the ìMobile Register.î In 1876, he moved from Alabama to the Mississippi Gulf Coast, to assist Jefferson Davis in the preparation of ìThe Rise and Fall of the Confederate Governmentî of which Walthall was the reputed ìghost writer.î In full, ìIf you see our friend Genl.[John Bell] Hood, please say to him that I called when in the city last week, but failed to find him, to my special regret. Since I saw Genl Hood I have read the book of my deceased and much lamented friend Genl. R. Taylor, [Confederate Gen. Richard Taylor, Zachary Taylorís only son, had died April 12th; Jefferson Davisí first wife was Richardís sister Sarah who had died in 1835 at the age of 21, just three months after they had married.] and was struck with his account of the expedition of the army under the command of Hood; called the Tenn. Campaign p.204 at bottom is a misapprehension as to what I certainly meant by moving north on to the Chan. & Atlanta R.R. pp. 206-7 ñ Is quite wrong as to the orders under which Beauregard went to the South and the purpose I expected him to promote. P 208 ñ The plan of crossing the Tenn. River was first made known to me through a cypher dispatch from Bgd. [Beauregard] and was never sanctioned by me, instead of having him as stated first adopted by me so as to filter Bgd. ìHood will remember my conversations with him at his Hd.Qrs. next to Atlanta, and probably saw the orders of the C.S. Adj. Genl. to Bgd. and may have heard from him of the conference I held with him at Augusta, in the presence of Genl. Hardee. Hood may also have, or remember the cypher dispatch sent by Bgd. to me announcing the plan to move across the Tenn. as well as my answer to it. As I have told you when the matter had passed beyond the stage at which the pursuit of Sherman was feasible, I was one of those who wished more than was expected from the invasion of Tenn. and objected to the tour of unmeasured censure heaped upon it after the failure. How did Bgd. abandon the Army after joining it, why & for what object as these declared as intimated. You know my recollections & may explain fully to Genl. Hood.î ìDestruction And Reconstruction: Personal Experiences of The Late Warî by Richard Taylor (New York: D. Appleton And Company, 1879) was just reaching bookshops at the time of Gen. Taylorís death on April 12, 1879, six weeks before Davis wrote the letter here offered.

        Zululand and the Zulus: Their History, Beliefs, Customs, Military System, Home Life, Legends, etc., etc., and Missions to them. Third Edition.

      London: Kerby & Endean, 1879 - Duodecimo. Original orange printed paper-covered boards. Somewhat rubbed, and rounded at the corners, joints slightly cracked, light browning, contemporary ownership/gift inscription to the title page, owner's ink-stamp to the half-title, Munger Africana Library blind stamp to the title page, but overall very good. One of four editions published in 1879, none subsequently. A work of compilation, but an extremely timely one in a handy format which would have placed it in the pockets of many officers travelling out to Natal. "'This little volume was published during the war with the Zulus under Cetywayo, and gives a résumé of the history of the country from the time of Chaka." (Mendelssohn) It is a reference work, and is fragile, and consequently decidedly uncommon. Farrer was a miscellaneous author who wrote a biography of Adam Smith; studies of literary forgeries and of censorship; but is probably best known for his contribution to the development of a more scientific approach to the study of folklore. Mendelssohn I, p. 536; Hosken, p. 69.

        TEXT WITH PRAYERS TO SAINTS JOHN THE EVANGELIST, STEPHEN, LAWRENCE, AND DIONYSIUS (DENIS)

      France, ca. first half of the, 1200. 146 x 114 mm (5 3/4 x 4 1/2"). Single column, 18 lines, in an early pleasing gothic book hand. Rubrics in red, capitals struck with red, four two-line initials in burnished gold on a blue and pink background with white tracery. A bit browned, particularly at the edges, corners rounded, a little wrinkling to head edge, one-inch slit to margin mended on verso with clear tape, faintly soiled, otherwise in very good condition, with no serious defects. This leaf comes from a little Psalter that belonged to Count Eric von Rosen (1879-1948) of Rockelstad Castle, Sweden, and that sold at Sotheby's on 9 July 1969. It was later in the collection of Joseph Pope (1921-2010) of Toronto. The Psalter included a Litany--a combination that was the predecessor to the Book of Hours--with a few prayers at the end for important saints. The sequence in which the saints appear here--John, Stephen, Lawrence, Denis--is not according to the calendar, but rather by celestial hierarchy, in descending order of importance, from Apostles and Evangelists (John) to Martyrs (Stephen, Lawrence, and Denis). This leaf shows signs of having gone through a fire.

        THE LAMPLIGHTER

      1879. A Farce. (1838.) Now First Printed from a Manuscript in the Forster Collection at the South Kensington Museum. London: [no publisher] 1879. Original light blue-grey wrappers. First Edition in dramatic form, one of 250 numbered copies (this being #100). Around 1838 Dickens consented to write this "unfortunate little farce" (his words) specifically for the famous actor W. C. Macready. However, while it was in rehearsal Macready changed his mind and put a halt to it, so it was never staged. Three years later, Dickens wanted to contribute a tale to THE PIC-NIC PAPERS (the collection of pieces published in 1841 for the benefit of the widow of Dickens's first publisher John Macrone), so for it he re-wrote the still-born play into a tale titled "The Lamplighter's Story." Nine years after Dickens's death, a manuscript (not in Dickens's hand) of the original play was discovered in the Forster Collection, and the result was this 250-copy edition.~This copy is still in the original wrappers (most have been re-bound), and is in near-fine condition (scarcely any wear at all, but a little cover soil). This is quite an uncommon piece in this condition. Gimbel B80; Carr B532; Eckel p. 162.
