        LA VIE ET L'OEUVRE DE J.-F. MILLET Manuscrit publié par Paul Mantz avec de nombreux fac-similes.

      Paris: A. Quantin, Imprimeur-Editeur, 1881. First edition. Folio, (32.5 x 22.5 cm), xi, 1),402pp. , with a preface by Albert Sensier, a note on Sensier by art critic Paul Mantz, 12 tissue-guarded photoengravings on laid paper by Dujardin, including portraits of Sensier and Millet and reproductions of some of Millet's most famous works, plus 48 b/w illustratations in the text, of which 19 are full-page. The text, of course, is in French. This copy, never cased, is in the original grey paper wrappers printed in red and black, (a copy of the title page), with a 3-cm tear at the top of the rear panel, several short tears at the edges, and vertical paper cracks on the spine. The wrappers are somewhat shelf-soiled and edge-darkened. The top edge is trimmed, the fore and bottom edges are not. Internally there are marginal traces of browning to the first and last leaves, but the remainder of the book, inclusive of the plates, is exceptionally clean. A fine copy.

        Lehrbuch der Gehirnkrankheiten. 3 Bde.

      - Kassel, Berlin, Theodor Fischer, 1881/1883, 8°, (4), V, 1 Bl., 371 pp.; XXXV, 1 Bl., 215 pp., 2 Bl.; pp. 253-572; 96 Abb., 3 orig. Leinenbände; feines Exemplar. Erste Ausgabe! - Carl Wernicke (1848-1905) studierte in Breslau, wo er 1870 promovierte, Assistenzarzt am Allerheilliegenhospital wurde und sich 1875 für Psychiatrie habilitierte (1876 in Berlin). Von 1876-78 arbeitete er als Assistent C. Westphals an der Psychiatrischen und Nervenklinik der Charité und wurde 1885 a.o. Professor, 1890 o.Professor für Psychiatrie und Neurologie in Breslau. 1904 folgte er einem Ruf in Halle. - Wernicke gehört zu den bedeutendsten Forschern auf dem Gebiet der Neurologie und Psychiatrie. In seiner ersten größeren, für sein weitere Studium grundlegenden Arbeit "Der aphasische Symptomencomplex" Breslau 1874, gelangte er zur Entdeckung der sensorischen Aphasie - Wernickesche Aphasie - und ihrer Lokalisation in der ersten linken Schläfenwindung, der sog. Wernickeschen Windung. Durch diese Entdeckung und durch seine Theorie des Sprachprozesses wurde er der Hauptbegründer der Aphasielehre. Er beschäftigte sich mit dem Faserverlauf im Gehirn und mit der Begründung einer Pathologie der Herderkrankungen. Es gelang ihm die Entdeckung der hemianopischen Pupillenreaktion - Wernicksches Phänomen, des Zentrum für die assoziierten Augenbewegungen im unteren Scheitellappen und des Krankheitsbildes der Polioencephalitis acuta haemorrhagica - Wernicksche Krankheit (Lehrb. d. Gehirnkrankheiten, 2.Bd., p.229); er klärte und fertigte schon bekannte Symptomenbilder, z.B. halbseitiger Lähmungen nach Blutungen und Erweichungen. Wernicke teilte die psychischen Vorgänge und Störungen nach einem Schema ein und erwarb sich durch die Bereicherung und Vertiefung der psychischen Symptomenlehre sehr große Verdienste. Seine Namen trägt auch noch der WERNICKE-MANNsche Lähmungstypus. - cf.Fischer, p.1669 - First Edition. "The three-volume 'Lehrbuch der Gehrinkrankheiten.' is an astounding accomplishment for so a young man (Wernicke was 33 when volume one appeared). It was the first comprehensive account of the achievements in cerebral localization up to that time. Particularly interesting was his postulation of the symptomatology, resulting from thrombosis of the posterior inferior cerebellar artery, based on his anatomical investigations of the arterial supply of the medulla oblongata. In his 'Lehrbuch' (vol. 2, p.229), too, he brought to light the clinical syndrome of 'polio-encephalitis superior haemorrhagica', which has become 'Wernicke's encephalopathy'. Haymaker & Schiller, Founder of Neurology, p. 533. - Not in Osler, Waller, Cushing, Courville, Norman. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        A Laodicean;

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington,, 1881. or, The Castle of the De Stancys. A Story of To-Day. 3 volumes, octavo. Original grey sand-grain cloth, spines lettered in gilt between blind-stamped three-line bands at head and foot, central publisher's device within three-line border to sides in blind, cream endpapers. Publisher's 32-page catalogue to rear of vol. II as issued. Spines rolled and sunned, extremities lightly bumped with a few short nicks to spine-ends; library stamps effaced from spines, front covers of vols. I and II, and pastedowns, three adjacent strips of fading to vol. II front cover, a few pale red marks to front cover vol. III , occasional light foxing as usual, briefly heavier towards front of vols. I and II; light browning to half-titles, title-pages, final gatherings and vol. II quire D (different paper-stock). A very good copy. First UK edition, printed in early December 1881 "in an edition presumably of 1,000 copies" (Purdy), rare in the original cloth; this copy from the library of Walter E. Smith, the pre-eminent modern bibliographer of 19th-century fiction, with his pencilled ownership inscription to the front free endpaper of each volume. A Laodicean originally appeared as a serial in the European edition of Harper's New Monthly Magazine December 1880 to December 1881, and in the US edition of Harper's from January 1881 and January 1882. It was then published by Harper's under their Franklin Square Library imprint on 25 November 1881 and issued to booksellers unbound: this iteration Purdy considers the true first edition, though the London edition was the first to contain Hardy's final revisions, with the novel originally written "under the gravest handicaps", with Hardy having fallen ill with just three instalments in type, and having to dictate the rest to his wife from his sick bed. The triple-decker format was largely adopted for sale to lending libraries, with sets retaining the original cloth in anything approaching collectable condition markedly uncommon.

        Rough notes on the birds observed during twenty-five years' shooting and collecting in the British Islands.

      - London, R.H. Porter, 1881-1887. 3 volumes. Large-folio (420 x 320mm). With 114 hand-coloured lithographed plates and 2 coloured maps. Later green half morocco, spines with gilt bird ornaments, topedges gilt. A well preserved copy of this beautiful and important work, which is based on years of birdwatching, especially in the highlands of Scotland, off the Scottish coasts, and in the western isles. The work is much in demand for its notes on these birds, as well as for its wonderful and impressive plates (after drawings by E. Neale), of which the ones showing birds of prey, are of outstanding quality and are reminescent of Gould. "Neale's most important assignment was given him by Edward T. Booth. This bird-watcher was a very wealthy man and could indulge himself fulltime in his hobby. With his gun in hand he stalked the marshes near Rye, then the Norfolk Broads, and finally went further afield to the Highlands and Lowlands of Scotland, in search of birds' (Jackson p. 95). "The beautiful plates show the birds in different plumages" (Anker 51).Nissen IVB, 121; Zimmer pp. 79/80: "A series of well written field notes accompanied by good plates"; Wood 249.

Contemporary binding by V. Champs in three-quarter dark blue morocco, marbled boards and endpapers, flat spines with gilt titles, ornaments, and double fillets. (#7763) Le Monument du costume was written by the prolific novelist and author on many subjects Restif de La Bretonne (1734-1806), noted for his licentious accounts of French society before the Revolution and his works, many printed by his own hand, for their typography and illustrations. In this one, both text and plates were beautifully engraved, the plates by Sigmund Freudenberger (1745-1801) and Jean Michel Moreau (1741-1814). As the eighteenth century editions became rare, Le Monument appeared in a few more during the later nineteenth century. Conquet issued his in elegant limited editions, varying by the number of states included for each plate, all prepared by engraver Henri Dubouchet (1833-1909).

        Washington Square. Illustrated by George du Maurier

      New York, Harper 1881., 1881. FIRST EDITION. Foolscap octavo, pp.266; 6, adverts. Publisher's original pictorial green cloth stamped in dark brown and gilt, coated brown endpapers. A tight copy with sound paper joints; some pencil notes to flyleaf. Cloth is bright and would be fine but for a vertical crease to upper cover. Nonetheless an attractive copy of an elusive first edition. Henry James classic short novel is a deceptively simple tragicomedy that recounts the conflict between a dull but sweet daughter and her brilliant, domineering father. The book is often compared to Jane Austen's work for the clarity and grace of its prose and its intense focus on family relationships. BAL [10551], Edel and Laurence [A15a]

        LIFE AND TIMES OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS, WRITTEN BY HIMSELF. HIS EARLY LIFE AS A SLAVE, HIS ESCAPE FROM BONDAGE, AND HIS COMPLETE HISTORY TO THE PRESENT TIME

      Hartford, Conn.: Park Publishing Co., 1881. Revised and enlarged edition of the author's autobiography (first published in 1845). 8vo. xii, xv-xxiii, 13-516 pp. Frontispiece portrait of the author. Inscribed by Douglass on the front endpaper "To Mrs. Briggs / with the kindest regard / of the author / 1882." Douglass (1818-1895) was born a slave in Talbot County, Maryland, escaping to the north in 1838 to become a leading force in the abolition movement while eventually earning his reputation as a newspaper editor and skilled orator. The first version of his autobiography, issued in 1845, was titled Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, an African Slave, first revised for an 1855 edition, My Bondage and My Freedom, then published in the edition offered here, much expanded. It includes recollections of meetings with Abraham Lincoln, Andrew Johnson, John Brown, and Harriet Beecher Stowe, among others, and an account of his post-Civil War career. Douglass died in Washington, D.C., in 1895. The recipient of the book, "Mrs. Briggs," may have been pioneering woman journalist Emily Edson Briggs (1830-1910; cf. "Notable American Women" I, pp. 242-243); several letters written by her to Douglass in the 1880s are preserved and she mentioned him a half dozen times in her book Olivia's Letters (Neale Publishing Co., 1906; Krick 53: "There is also material on blacks in Congress and on the movement for female suffrage"). Two signatures a little pulled, but a very good copy. Original rust cloth (rubbed, spine ends a little frayed), gilt spine title. (#6344)

        Street Incidents

      1881. THOMSON, John.Street Incidents.London: Sampson, Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1881.First abridged edition of the ?"first concerted body of work to deal with life on the streets,?" with 21 mounted brown-tone Woodburytypes from the original glass plates.?"Motivated in part by a reforming desire, to alleviate the wretched living conditions of the urban working class, but also by the Victorian urge to typify,?" John Thomson produced this ?"pioneering work of social documentation in photographs?" (Parr & Badger, 39-40). During 1877-78, he created 36 photographs for the monthly parts of Street Life in London, a ground-breaking social commentary, with text by radical socialist journalist Adolphe Smith. Thomson and Smith approached their subjects like ethnographers and anthropologists, ?"venturing into London?'s poorest areas, interviewing [and photographing] their subjects and writing about them as ?'characters?' or ?'types,?" in Thomson?'s words, ?"the true types of the London poor?" (Parr & Badger). ?"Few photographs of the London streets had been taken before Thomson?'s journey around them, and even fewer were published with the intent of informing public opinion… To combine photographs of the London streets, and to place the poor, the working classes, criminals, and the homeless at the center of the images, was a new departure in photographic documentation… Perhaps the most striking feature of Street Life is that the images have been reproduced photomechanically by the Woodburytype process from the photographer?'s original dry-plate negatives. The resultant prints give a strikingly sharp, almost three-dimensional representation… The reason Street Life has ultimately succeeded as the first social documentary photography is that its primary aim was to inform: it was never the intention of Smith or Thomson to claim the literary and artistic high ground… Rather, they aimed to transfer the experiences of the poor into the homes of the comfortable middle class, and to make them aware of a different, harsher reality?" (Ovenden, 78-88). The 12 monthly parts of Street Life were reissued in book form in 1878, and also in a shorter version under the title, Street Incidents (1881), with 21 of the photographs (this edition). ?"Structurally, Street Life is a combination of street portraiture… and interviews with the subjects. Thus it was the direct predecessor of the journalistic picture stories that would appear in illustrated magazines from that period onward?" (Parr & Badger). ?"It was the first published collection of social documentary photographs anywhere in the world?" (Museum of London).See Frizot, 348-50; Parr & Badger, 48; Truthful Lens 169; Open Book, 42-43.Embrowning to title page and last page, an occasional very faint finger mark. Light rubbing to joints and spine ends. Photographs fine. A very desirable copy of this first photo-documentary. Rare.
