        [Original Art]: Two Original Illustrations of Confederate in the Civil War

      [Circa 1880]. Two illustrations depicting Confederate Civil War scenes from the 19th Century illustrator Henry Pruett Share. Watercolor and gouache on stiff paper. The first depicts a scene of camp life with a dozen South Carolina troops by tents overlooking a lake, cooking, smoking, and tending their weapons with a "South Carolina and State Rights" banner visible in the background. It measures approximately 12.25" x 8.75" and is Signed "H.P.S." in lower right corner. Small chips and tears at the extremities, barely encroaching on the image, very good or better. The other illustration shows a motley crew of Confederate soldiers marching interspersed with riding officers accompanied by several quartermaster&#39;s wagons. It measures approximately 11.5" x 10.5" and is Signed "H.P. Share. &#39;80" in lower right corner. One short tear, else fine.Share was born in Los Angeles in 1853 and graduated from the Art Student League of New York. He was a successful illustrator who was published in Scribner&#39;s Monthly, Harper&#39;s, Century, and other popular magazines of the day. He served as art editor for several New York newspapers, including The New York World, The New York Herald, and The New York Journal. He died at the relatively young age of 52 in Flatbush, Long Island in 1905. .

An extract from "Atti della R. Accademia dei Lincei, Anno CCLXXVII, 1879-80, Serie Terza, Vol. V". ["Angelo Mosso.,.19th century Italian physiologist, who created the first crude neuroimaging technique by recording the pulsation of the human cortex in patients with skull defects following neurosurgical procedures. From his findings that these pulsations change during mental activity, he inferred that during mental activities blood flow increases to the brain. Though crude, this inference is the basis for the more refined neuroimaging techniques of FMRI, and PET,essential to neuroscience research today. He was born in Turin, studied medicine there and in Florence, Leipzig, and Paris, and was appointed professor of pharmacology (1876) and professor of physiology (1879) at Turin. He invented various instruments to measure the pulse and experimented and wrote upon the variation in the volume of the pulse during sleep, mental activity, or emotion.,." - wikipedia].

Offprint from Arch. Anat. Phys. (n.d.). 409-411pp. Original printed wrappers, creased horizontally, small wax stain on front cover. Booklabel and stamp of Johann Friedrich Miescher (1844-95). (3) Zur Theorie der Bilderzeugung. Offprint from Arch. Anat. Phys.(1880). 111-184pp. Plate. Original printed wrappers, slightly soiled. Upper right corner of first leaf cut away. Stamp of the Vesalianum, Physiologisch-chemisches Anstalt, Basel on the front wrapper. Together 3 offprints. Very good. First Editions, Offprint Issues. Garrison-Morton 713 (no. [1]). Altmann coined the term "nucleic acid ," which he introduced in his 1889 paper "Ueber Nucleinsäuren," and developed a convenient and general method for its preparation. His work on nucleic acids represents an early stage in the development of molecular biology. Altmann was a student of Johann Friedrich Miescher, who in 1869 discovered a hitherto unknown substance in the cell nucleus that he named nuclein; we now know it as DNA. Altmann worked with Miescher at Miescher's institute in Basel, called the "Vesalianum" after the great 16th-century anatomist. At the time Miescher was performing biochemical investigations of salmon sperm, from which he had succeeded in isolating protamine, an important constituent of spermatazoa. However, Miescher "fell into an error: he detected purine bases in the protamine he had isolated by the murexide reaction, no doubt caused by contamination with adhering DNA. Later, Miescher requested that [his associate] Piccard re-investigate this question. Piccard also detected purine bases in the acid extract of spermatozoa from which protamine was isolated. However, he concluded (correctly) that nuclein also contained purine bases. This confusion was not resolved until R. Altmann in 1889 separated protein (free of purine bases) from nuclein (called by him nucleic acid), containing xanthine bases" (Wolf). Our copy of Altmann's paper on nucleic acid bears the stamp of Miescher's Vesalianum, as does the third offprint in the collection, a paper on the theory of imaging. The second offprint, on the structure of the cell nucleus, is from Miescher's library, with his stamp and booklabel. Fruton, Proteins, Enzymes, Genes, p. 400.

Bound for the author in dark green half-morocco with cloth-covered boards, richly gilt. . Only edition, uncommon. Tagore (1840-1914) was a pious Hindu, wealthy land owner and gem specialist.
