        Ueber Frauenemancipation. Plato. Arbeiterfrage. Socialismus. By J. S. Mill, translated by Freud

      Fues, Leipzig 1880 - [Freud, Sigmund (1856-1939), translator] Mill, John Stuart (1806-73). Ueber Frauenemancipation. Plato. Arbeiterfrage. Socialismus. Vol. 12 of Mill's Gesammelte Werke, ed. Theodor Gomperz. 8vo. [6], 228 [2]pp. Leipzig: Fues, 1880. 192 x 124 mm. Half cloth, a little worn, minor foxing. Very good copy. First Edition of Freud's translation. Freud's only major non-scientific publication was a translation of four essays by John Stuart Mill, forming the twelfth volume of Gomperz's edition of the collected writings in German. The task "was especially congenial work, since [Freud] was specially gifted as a translator. Instead of laboriously transcribing from the foreign language, idioms and all, he would read a passage, close the book and consider how a German writer would have clothed the same thoughts--a method not very usual among translators" (Jones, Freud, I, p. 61).

        PRINCIPLES Of ELECTRO-HOMOEOPATHY. A New Science Discovered by Coiunt Cesar Mattei, of Bologna.

      Printing and Stereotype Offices V.-E. Gauthier and Co.,, Nice: 1880 - Frontis, "C. Mattei". 3 views of human figures, pp. 236 - 237. Electro-homoeopathy is a derivative of homeopathy that originated with Count Cesar Mattei of Bologna. The name is derived from a combination of electro (referring to an electric bio-energy content supposedly extracted from plants and of therapeutic value, rather than electricity in its conventional sense) and homeopathy (referring to an alternative medicinal philosophy developed by Samuel Hahnemann in the 18th century). Electro- homeopathy has been defined as the combination of electrical devices and homeopathy, however some contend that it is the therapeutic use of homeopathic preparations of certain "electric bio-energy" herbs that is intended by the term. The discipline is regarded as distinct from traditional homeopathy, which relies on serially diluted remedies of substances that cause similar symptoms to those as it is attempting to cure; electro-homeopathy, however, does not directly follow the "law of similars".Mattei studied natural science, anatomy, physiology, pathology, chemistry and botany. He ultimately focused on the supposed therapeutic power of 'electricity' in botanical extracts, making bold, ultimately unsupported, claims for the efficacy of his treatments, including the claim that his treatments offered a non-surgical alternative to cancer. Not surprisingly, his claims were met with skepticism by established medical authorities. Notwithstanding criticisms, including a challenge by the British medical establishment to the claimed success of cancer treatments, electro-homeopathy (or Matteism, as it was sometimes known at the time) was embraced and by the beginning of the 20th century had adherents in Germany, France, the USA and the UK; it had been the subject of approximately 100 publications and there were three journals dedicated to it.After Mattei's death, his work was built upon by Theodore Krauss (1864 - 1924) who amplified the number of available treatments, including the introduction of injectable forms of treatment, and modernized production processes.

        Histoire de la vie et des vertus de Mgr. Caire protonotaire apostolique décédé à Lyon le 5 juillet 1856 ( 1797 - 1856 ) [ Biographie manuscrite inédite d'un prêtre marseillais, aumônier d'Henri IV et de Louis le Grand, contemporain de Lamennais, Frayssinous, Quelen et Mgr. de Mazenod, ami de Mgr. de Salinis et co-directeur du collège de Juilly ]

      Congrégation de Notre Dame, Chanoinesses de St Augustin 1880 - Manuscrit de travail anonyme et original, abondamment corrigé et annoté, et reproduisant abondamment la correspondance de Mgr. Caire, en 1 vol. in-8 relié demi-basane marron, Congrégation de Notre Dame, Chanoinesses de St Augustin, s.d. (circa 1880), 401 pp. (rel. frottée avec le premier plats et les premiers ff. détachés). Un passionnant document retraçant un intéressant parcours ecclésiastique dans la première moitié du XIXe siècle (avec un saisissant récit de l'épidémie de choléra de 1832 à Paris) Fils du fervent légitimiste marseillais André Antoine Esprit Caire et de Joséphine Pinatel, André Antoine Esprit Vincent Caire, né le 5 avril 1797, manifesta dès son plus jeune âge les meilleures dispositions pour la piété et les études sérieuses. Alors qu'il était âgé de six ans, en 1804, son père fut emprisonné mais Napoléon "convaincu qu'il n'avait pas trempé dans la conspiration de Pichegru, lui rendit la liberté et voulut l'attacher à sa cause en lui faisant offrir . les postes les plus éminents". En 1811, suite à l'assassinat de 11 personnes en quelques mois, Mme Caire effrayé obtint de son mari un déplacement de Creisseaux vers Aubagne ; le petit André poursuivit alors ses études au petit séminaire fondé à Marseille par le père Ripert. Après un bref séjour à Aix, il retrouve le père Ripert aux Aygalades. Epuisé par 25 années de lutte, son père meurt en 1816, mais malgré les pressions qu'il eût à subir en tant qu'aîné, André persévère dans sa vocation ecclésiastique ; âgé de 19 ans, et seulement tonsuré, il enseigne déjà au petit séminaire. Ordonné diacre à 22 ans, puis prêtre avant ses 25 ans, il est mandé par Mgr Perigord, archevêque de Paris, et Mgr de Beausset lui accorda l'exeat. L'abbé Caire quitte donc Marseille le 28 août 1821, et est accueilli au séminaire d'Issy par le supérieur M. Duclos. Celui-ci lui annonce alors, comme André Caire l'écrit à sa mère : "vous êtes appelé à remplir de hautes destinées, le coadjuteur me charge de vous envoyer chez Mr Frayssinous, qui doit vous faire une proposition". On déjeune et puis je cours chez Mr. Frayssinous (la tête trottait bien plus encore) cet homme si justement célèbre me propose l'éducation des enfants de Mr. de Clermont-Tonnerre, pair de France. . " On lui prédit même que viendra ensuite l'éducation du Duc de Bordeaux, "dont le marquis de Clermont-Tonnerre sera très probablement le gouverneur". Devant l'insistance du coadjuteur, il rencontre le marquis de Clermont-Tonnerre qui le considère comme engagé. "Je sors étourdi et presque décidé mais la nuit porte conseil. Je considère d'un côté tous les pour : la volonté de l'archevêque, l'avis de son conseil, et surtout de Mr. de Frayssinous, les avantages du poste : logement très agréable, bonne table, excellente société (le grand chancelier, les plus illustres pairs : les Bonald, les Villèle, etc. etc. car tout ce qu'il y a de mieux va là !) Voiture à mon service, campagnes en Normandie, en Picardie, etc. etc. Le marquis et la marquise me plurent (celle-ci par parenthèse est dans ce moment le précepteur de ses enfants ; elle lit Virgile et Tacite comme l'almanach). Mais voici les Contre : d'abord, j'étais perdu pour mon état. considération d'un poids immense ; . Ensuite, un précepteur est toujours le premier domestique et je suis, sans prétention, le fils de mon père. " Le jeune abbé réussit à se sortir avec tact de cette situation délicate, et conserve l'amitié de Mgr. de Quélen et de Mr. Frayssinous. Il est alors admis comme prêtre administrateur à la paroisse des Missions étrangère ; il continue ses visites régulières chez Monsieur Frayssinous, croise le duc de Rivière, M. de Pastoret. L'abbé Caire évoque avec talent un souper servi aux petits Savoyards par la société des bonnes oeuvres "composée de ce qu'il y a de mieux" : "ici un grand vicaire portait du pain ; là le marquis de Montmorency versait à boire, plus loin l'abbé André que vous connaissez bien essuyait, par distraction, le bord d'une assiette contre l'habit [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        The Chess Monthly

      Jas Wade, London 1880 - iv+380 pages with illustrations, diagrams, tables, and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in quarter black leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue marbled boards. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume II (2). (Betts: 7-25). First edition. The Chess Monthly of Great Britain was one of the first to give properly annotated games. The principal editor, Leopold Hoffer, was helped enormously by having J H Zukertort as co-editor until his death in 1888. There were four regular sections: news, annotated games, problems and endgames. In addition, Hoffer carried on a profoundly bitter feud with his one-time benefactor, Steinitz. This publication should not be confused with The Chess Monthly published in the United States which was short lived from 1857-1862 and edited by Fiske and Morphy. Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri’s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases. He also had frequent contacts with Gregorio Lastra, Normando Ivaldi, Gaspar Soria and Carlos De Veyga, all known collectors of chess. He died in 2009 in 2009 at the age of 88. Condition: Corners bumped, some foxing and age toning, Ruggieri's stamp to front end paper else a very good copy of a scarce item. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      Berlin: Beuckert & Radetzki, 1880.. Broadside, 16 1/4 x 10 1/2 inches. Some toning and dust-soiling, a couple of minor creases. Backed on thicker paper some time ago. News clippings pasted to verso. Very good. A fascinating broadside, printed in German, for an exhibition from the "Champion rifle shot of the world," William Frank "Doc" Carver, held in Potsdam, Germany on June 13, 1880. In 1879-80, Carver toured Europe to perform in a series of shooting exhibitions, where he engaged in contests with shotguns, rifles, pistols, and shot both from horseback and on foot. Thirty various exhibitions of gunplay are enumerated on the present broadside, such as "Zerschiessen von wenigstens 75 Glaskugeln aus 100" ("Shoot to pieces at least 75 out of 100 glass targets"). During this tour, Doc Carver visited France, Belgium, Austria, and Germany, but spent most of the tour in Great Britain. Upon returning to America, Carver would partner with Buffalo Bill Cody on a traveling Wild West show. In later years, Carver would invent the diving horse stunt, the origin of which, like most of Carver's story, is shrouded in legend. A handsome example of a rare program for an exhibition by one of the Wild West's sharpest shooters.

        Map Of Colorado County

      St. Louis: A. Gast & Co., 1880. AN IMPORTANT TEXAS LAND GRANT Lithograph Paper size: 23 1/2" x 22" Texas, without gold mines or fabulous cities, was rich with abundant and affordable pubic land, which attracted a steady stream of visitors during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Lured by the dream of land ownership or profit from land speculation, many left their homelands for the Texas wilderness. It would be difficult to find better illustrations of this migration than the county survey maps charting the boundaries of tracts and names of grantees. These early maps, contemporary with the arrival of new settlers, provide a fascinating visual history of Texas land policy and the settlement of the Lone Star State. While Texas remained a Spanish dominion, land grants were granted to Spanish subjects only. Authority to grant land rested with the viceroy of New Spain in Mexico City until 1767 when the governor of the province of Texas was invested with the authority to issue grants. In 1820 Spain passed a law allowing foreigners to settle in the empire. The government of the now independent Mexico, which controlled the vast public lands of Texas, followed its colonial predecessor's example and in the proceeding years thousands of Anglo Americans undertook the arduous journey across the continent to take advantage of the opportunity to become Texas landowners. Large land grants were also awarded to colony leaders called empresarios, the most famous of whom are probably Moses and his son Stephen Austin. With no central land office, each colony appointed a land commissioner to issue titles to settlers. In 1830 the Mexican congress outlawed further immigration from the United States, sparking the Texas Revolution in the fall of 1835. Upon the establishment of the new Republic in 1836, Texas secured ownership of more than 200 million acres of public land. The Republic of Texas continued the land policies of Spain and Mexico and under its constitution awarded first-class headright to land to all single men and heads of families residing in Texas on March 2, 1836. The first congress of the Republic also established a General Land Office and during the years of independence a total of 36,876,492 acres was parceled out. The pioneers who settled this land helped defend Texan borders from both Indians and Mexico, the latter of which was eager to regain its lands. They also provided valuable tax revenue for the new nation. Texas became the twenty-eighth state of the Union in 1845. With the exception of the thirteen colonies, it is unique among the states because, upon its admittance, it retained its public lands thus providing for its economic strength and success. The new state used some of this land to settle its debts and make public improvements. Under the terms of the Compromise of 1850, Texas ceded its claim to 67 million acres of land to the west and northwest of its current boundaries in exchange for a payment of $10 million. After the settlement of its $7.75 million of debt, Texas used the remainder of the payment to establish a permanent school fund, build a new capitol and governor's mansion, and create a hospital for the mentally ill. The settlement of this public land remained an important part of state policy. Many of the Spanish community property and homestead laws were retained through the era of Mexican rule and the republican period and remained in practice after Texas became a state. Among these, property was exempt from forced sale and land grants extended only as far as the riverbank and not to the middle of the stream, as dictated by Anglo-Saxon common law. The government retained ownership of the streambed and water flowing through it. Most importantly for Texas, Spanis. Book.

First edition, preceding even the German edition by a year. Schliemann's account of his excavations at Hissarlik/Troy. A shameless self-publicist, motivated more perhaps by his desire for glory than his love of historical truth, Schliemann has been criticised for the brutality of his methods, however Carl Blegen, director of the excavations at the site 1932-8, defended him from his anachronistic detractors; "Although there were some regrettable blunders, those criticisms are largely coloured by a comparison with modern techniques of digging; but it is only fair to remember that before 1876 very few persons, if anyone, yet really knew how excavations should properly be conducted. There was no science of archaeological investigation, and there was probably no other digger who was better than Schliemann in actual field work" (quoted in Rubalcaba and Cline, Digging for Troy, p.30) Four page autograph letter signed from Schliemann to his friend the organist and composer Sir John Stainer tipped in at the half-title, presenting the book and referring to his excavations; " … and so I venture to send you, in memoriam this record of one of the most curious and interesting discoveries of modern days in its latest form …". Letters from Schliemann are far from common on the market.
