        Die Krankheiten der Brustdrüsen. Signed copy

      Stuttgart: Ferdinand Enke, 1880. Billroth, [Christian Albert] Theodor (1829-94). Die Krankheiten der Brustdrüsen. Deutsche Chirurgie, Lieferung 41. x, [2], 168pp. 8 chromolithograph plates, text illustrations. Stuttgart: Ferdinand Enke, 1880. 256 x 168 mm. Original printed wrappers, tears in spine expertly repaired, spine and corners a bit darkened, edges a bit frayed; preserved in a cloth drop-back box. Minor foxing in the plates, but very good. With Billroth’s autograph signature on the title: “Dr. Th. Billroth / Wien April 1880.” First Edition of Billroth’s classic monograph on breast cancer and other diseases of the mammary glands. Signed copies of Billroth’s works are rare; this is the first one we have handled in our five decades in the trade. Die Krankheiten der Brustdrüsen appears to be an expanded version of Billroth’s Die Krankheiten der weiblichen Brustdrüsen [Diseases of the female mammary glands], which was published as Vol. III, part 10 of Handbuch der Frauenkrankheiten (1880); the expanded Krankheiten der Brustdrüsen adds a final chapter on male breast cancer. The work is also significant in the history of plastic and reconstructive surgery; see Gabka & Vaubel, Plastic Surgery Past and Present, p. 136. Billroth, professor of surgery at Zürich and Vienna, was the founder of the Vienna School of Surgery. He has also been called the founder of modern abdominal surgery, and he was one of the first to introduce antisepsis into the Continental operating room. He was instrumental in establishing the first modern school of thought in surgery, using statistical methods and analyzing his failures as well as his successes. Billroth’s disciples helped to spread his teachings throughout Europe, and his methods of surgical education had a great influence on William Halsted’s pioneering surgical residency program at Johns Hopkins.

        MONOGRAPH OF THE PITTIDAE

      London: Published by the Author, 1880-1. FIRST AND ONLY EDITIONS. 565 x 390 mm. (22 1/4 x 15 3/8"). Part I with text and plates; part II with text only (all published). Two parts in one volume. Part II edited by Richard Bowdler Sharpe. FIRST AND ONLY EDITIONS. Pleasing three-quarter green crushed morocco over green cloth boards, raised bands, spine compartments with gilt lettering and tools. WITH 10 BEAUTIFUL HAND-COLORED LITHOGRAPHIC PLATES. With original blue upper wrapper to each part bound in. Fine Bird Books, p. 102; Zimmer, p. 263. Lower cover with a few negligible scratches and a light stain or two, original wrappers with a faint crease down the middle, plates with just a touch of toning around the edges, but A REALLY EXCELLENT COPY, ENTIRELY FRESH AND CLEAN. This brief but very pleasing work was John Gould's final publication before his death in 1881. It was originally conceived as a four-part series, but only Part I was completed in its entirety; Part II, containing just text, was published shortly after Gould's death by his friend and fellow ornithologist, R. Bowdler Sharpe, who also acted as editor. According to the nota bene on the wrapper for Part I, the illustrations found here were "principally taken from the Author's works on 'Birds of Asia,' 'Australia,' and 'New Guinea.'" As these sources suggest, the pittidae, a family of small, tropical birds, are found almost entirely in the aforementioned regions. The males of the species are known to possess a great range of colorful plumage--from the somber Black Ground-Thrush to the jewel-like and aptly named Necklaced Pitta--an attribute played up to great effect in the excellent coloring of the plates. The hand-colored lithographs seen here, and in most of Gould's work from the 1830's on, were a special point of pride for the scientist. According to DNB, "the design and natural arrangement of the birds on the plates was due to the genius of John Gould, and a Gould plate has a distinctive beauty and quality." Although he did not create the actual lithographs himself, he did create preliminary sketches upon which the plates were ultimately based. He was also intimately involved with the publication process from start to finish, including acting as agent and distributor of his own work. As a scientist, Gould (1804-81) is perhaps the most recognizable name in ornithology after Audubon. This brief but very pleasing work was John Gould's final publication before his death in 1881.

As these sources suggest, the pittidae, a family of small, tropical birds, are found almost entirely in the aforementioned regions. The males of the species are known to possess a great range of colorful plumage--from the somber Black Ground-Thrush to the jewel-like and aptly named Necklaced Pitta--an attribute played up to great effect in the excellent coloring of the plates. The hand-colored lithographs seen here, and in most of Gould's work from the 1830's on, were a special point of pride for the scientist. According to DNB, "the design and natural arrangement of the birds on the plates was due to the genius of John Gould, and a Gould plate has a distinctive beauty and quality." Although he did not create the actual lithographs himself, he did create preliminary sketches upon which the plates were ultimately based. He was also intimately involved with the publication process from start to finish, including acting as agent and distributor of his own work. As a scientist, Gould (1804-81) is perhaps the most recognizable name in ornithology after Audubon.

        A Series of Picturesque Views of Seats

      London: William Mackenzie,, [1880]. of the noblemen and gentlemen of Great Britain and Ireland. With descriptive and historical letterpress. 6 volumes, quarto. Publisher's deluxe binding of red full morocco over bevelled boards, spines gilt ruled and decorated with crown motifs, sides elaborately panelled in gilt and blind, large central gilt stamp bearing the title and the royal arms, all edges gilt, gilt roll tool turn-ins, marbled endpapers. Coloured woodblock vignette title pages, 240 coloured woodblock plates (heightened with gum arabic) by Alexander Francis Lydon, printed by Benjamin Fawcett. Covers of volume II just a little dished, minor rubbing to extremities, scattered foxing. An excellent set. First edition in book form; "the book's publishing history is complicated. It is described as having been issued in parts between 1864 and 1880, but selections from it like The Ancestral Homes of Britain of 1868 also appeared during this period" (Ray). Morris's Seats offers an unparalleled survey of British and Irish country houses in their late Victorian heyday, Lydon's superbly detailed and carefully composed plates - projecting an image of supremely placid and untroubled estates - were printed with considerable subtlety by Benjamin Fawcett, "the leading provincial colour printer of the age" (ibid).

        RECUEIL DE LETTRES ].

      1866-1868. (copie vers 1880?). - MANUSCRIT in-folio. 39ff. Cartonnage de l'époque (Mors en partie ouverts, manques de papier au dos, coins émoussés). Intéressant manuscrit qui émane peut-être de la famille d'Adolphe Thiers. Il contient la copie de 33 lettres, dont 15 furent échangées entre le Prince Napoléon et la Reine Sophie, et 18 furent écrites par Adolphe Thiers ou sa maîtresse Eurydice Matheron-Dosne, à diverses personnalités importantes de l'époque (Jules Ferry, Sophie de Wurtemberg reine des Pays-Bas, Casimir Périer, la duchesse d'Albuféra, etc.). Il constitue un précieux témoignage sur les évènements politiques qui marquèrent l'Europe à cette époque (le conflit entre la Prusse et l'Autriche, la Révolution de 1868 en Espagne, etc.) et sur la montée de la tension entre la France et la Prusse. On y voit en particulier se révéler les affinités personnelles et les appréciations politiques de chacun. Le prince Napoléon, cousin germain de Napoléon III, émet ainsi des doutes sur la force de Bismarck qui sera selon lui bientôt abandonné par le roi de Prusse. Sa cousine la reine Sophie de Hollande, qui est au contraire d'avis de prendre garde à la puissance grandissante de la Prusse, montre plus de discernement politique. Madame Dosne souhaite jeter Bismarck "à la mer", et Adolphe Thiers n'hésite pas à traiter de "sotte" et de "folle" la reine d'Espagne Isabel II. Datées entre 1866 et 1868, ces copies de lettres furent exécutées d'une même écriture élégante, à la fin du dix-neuvième siècle. Traces d'usure au cartonnage. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        On the Forms of Logical Proposition" Mind, a Quarterly Review of Psychology and Philosophy 5, 1880, pp. 336-350

      London: Williams and Norgate, 1880 FIRST EDITION OF OF THE JOINT FIRST PUBLICATION OF VENN DIAGRAMS (see below for clarification of concurrent publication). Venn diagrams provide an easy and better way of visualizing elements, information, sets, concepts, logical relationships, and even simply ideas. Essentially, they are illustrations that utilize circles (which can be overlapping or non-overlapping) in order to depict a relationship between finite groups of things such as mathematical or logical sets. Venn diagrams became an important part of the 1960s new math movement based on set theory and are still widely used today. John Venn was a British philosopher and cleric in the Anglican Church. Unusually, when he was ready announce his discovery, he did so by publishing two separate papers in two separate journals - each appearing in the July issues of their respective journals. 'On the diagrammatic and mechanical representation of propositions and reasonings' in the Philosophical Magazine, and 'On the forms of logical proposition' in Mind. There is scholastic disagreement as to whether one or the other publication truly constitutes the 'first' announcement. Many scholars cite the Phil Mag paper; others, including the Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy, cite the Mind paper. Regardless, each was published at exactly the same time. Note that we also offer the Phil Mag volume separately. Venn was a critic of Euler circles (diagrams), arguing that Euler's system failed in its efforts to depict consistent pieces of information in one diagram; as well, Venn believed Euler's circles did not well-depict non-empty sets. Venn's goal in devising a new system was to overcome these "expressive limitations so that partial information can be represented. The solution was his idea of 'primary diagrams'. A primary diagram represents all the possible set-theoretic relations between a number of sets, without making any existential commitments about them" (Stanford Philosophy Portal). Venn diagrams are constructed of a collection of simple closed curves drawn within a plane. "The principle of these diagrams is that classes or similar sets of information may be represented by regions within the curves, such that in relation to one another all the possible logical relations of these classes or sets of information can be indicated in the same diagram. Venn diagrams normally comprise overlapping circles, the simplest being two circles. The interior of the circle symbolically represents the elements or sets of information, while the exterior represents elements that are not members. "The uses of these kinds of diagrams in logic were used before Venn - for example, by mathematician Gottfried Leibniz and Leonhard Euler - but Venn was the first to comprehensively study them and formalize and generalize their usage" (Pickover, The Math Book, 272). This volume also includes papers by Francis Galton, Alexander Bain, Leslie Stephen, William James and John Watson who, with the influential paper published here, "The Method of Kant", led a Kantian Revival of sorts in the English speaking world. CONDITION & DETAILS: London: Williams and Norgate. Complete volume. 8vo. 8.5 by 6 inches (213 x 150mm). [4], viii, [592], 4. Ex-libris bearing small circular stamps on the front and rear pastedown and flyleaves; there are no markings on the spine whatsoever. Tightly bound in half contemporary calf and buckram, rubbed and scuffed a bit at the edge tips. Five raised bands at the spine with each compartment gilt-tooled. Gilt-lettered burgundy morocco spine label. The interior is bright and clean throughout. Very good condition.
