        Autograph Manuscript, signed ("Paul Hamilton Hayne"), of his Poem "The Unseen Host"

      N.p. [Grovetown, Georgia], n.d. [1881]. (GARFIELD, JAMES A.) 4to. 1 p., in purple ink on ruled paper, the original copy sent to the printer, with title in editor's hand and other typesetting marks. Fine (minor soiling and smudges along right margin, not affecting legibility), in maroon cloth folding case . Manuscript poem by the American poet Paul Hamilton Hayne (1830-1886) on the assassination of President Garfield. "After the death in 1870 of William Gilmore Simms, an old friend and mentor, Hayne became the chief literary spokesman for the South, an unofficial postwar laureate for the late Confederacy" (ANB). Hayne composed this poem after the attack on President James A. Garfield by Charles J. Guiteau at the Washington railroad station on 2 July 1881. Originally titled "The President's (Unseen) Company" with the subtitle "The Prayers of the People will not let the old Soldier die!", and dedicated to Mrs. Garfield, the poem was re-titled by the editor and published as "The Unseen Host." The poem, in three stanzas of six, five, and six verses, reads in part: Angels are these, born on the breath of prayer! - For him through all the land, fervent and sweet, What prayers oh! Christ, have risen to kiss Thy feet! No marvel then a Spritiual Concourse stands Beside his bed, lifting ethereal hands Against all treacherous demons of the dark!- With mystic wings they fan his vital spark Garfield lingered and succumbed to the assassin's bullet on 19 Sept 1881

        A Collection of Novels Inscribed to Close Friend

      First. A collection of twenty-one novels by Dell, nearly all Inscribed to her close friend, the childhood nurse of her adopted niece with whom she shared a home for many years.Ethel Mary Dell (1881-1939) was a popular romance novelist in the early part of the 20th Century. Born in 1881 to a middle class English family, she led a quiet, ordinary life, being very shy and retiring in nature. Although introverted, she had a lively imagination and began writing stories, and getting them published in popular magazines, at a young age. Her first novel, The Way of an Eagle, was published in 1911 and was an immediate success. She continued writing popular romance novels until her death in 1939. Many of her works, including several here, were turned into silent films in the 1910s and 1920s.Dell's extraordinary popularity can be difficult for today's readers to appreciate but her influence is reflected in the writings of several authors with whom they would be more familiar. For example, the monologues of James Joyce's character Gerty MacDowell in Ulysses are written in the style of Dell's novels. P.G. Wodehouse created a character in his famous Jeeves and Wooster series based on Dell: "Rosie M. Banks," and in a separate short story he also had a similar character named "Leila M. Pinkney." Both characters are authors of romance novels and explicitly based on Dell. The protagonist of George Orwell's Keep the Aspidistra Flying frequently mentions Dell. In these instances both Orwell and Wodehouse were critical of Dell and exhibited the tendency of writers and artists of every age to disparage their contemporaries whose appeal was broader, and whose success was more commercial. Dell reportedly paid little heed to such attacks; she considered herself a storyteller first and foremost. Her aim was to entertain her readers, and this she accomplished. While her fame has long ago waned, her writing and its immense popularity are no less a reflection of her time than the relatively few works of her peers that are still read today.Despite her lucrative writing career and its attendant fame, Dell remained almost pathologically shy. Few photographs were ever taken of her and she was never interviewed by the press. When she was forty, she married Lieutenant-Colonel Gerald Savage, who dedicated himself to his wife's career and fiercely guarded her privacy. Because of these circumstances, signed books by Dell are rare. This set of her works, with their intimate association, is therefore highly unusual.The twenty-one books in the collection range from 1915 to 1938. A few of the books are reprints, but most are English or American first editions, and most are inscribed in the year of publication. The copies lack dustjackets, and are generally in very good to fine condition. Full condition details upon request. The collection includes:The Knave of Diamonds. 1915 Inscribed early reprint.The Keeper of the Door. 1916 early reprint.The Lamp in the Desert. 1919 Inscribed first American edition.The Tidal Wave and Other Stories. 1919 Inscribed first edition.The Top of the World. 1920 Inscribed first edition.Rosa Mundi and Other Stories. 1921 Inscribed first edition.The Obstacle Race. 1921 Inscribed first edition.Charles Rex. 1922 Inscribed first edition.The Odds, and Other Stories. 1922 Inscribed first edition.Tetherstones. 1923 Inscribed first American edition.The Unknown Quantity. 1924 Inscribed first American edition.The Passer-By and Other Stories. 1925 Inscribed first American edition.A Man Under Authority. 1926 Inscribed first American edition.The Black Knight. 1927 Inscribed second American printing.The House of Happiness and Other Stories. 1927 Inscribed first American edition.Peggy By Request: The Love Story of Noel and Peggy from "The Keeper of the Door" Written by Request of Some of My Readers. 1928 Inscribed first American edition.Dona Celestis. 1933 Inscribed first American edition.The Prison Wall. 1933 Inscribed first American edition.Where Three Roads Meet. 1936 Inscribed first American edition.The Juice of The Pomegranate. 1938 Inscribed first American edition.The Serpent in the Garden.

According to Dann this was the first dermatological work to make use of a duplicating technique known as heliography or photo-engraving which was invented in 1878. - He is known eponymously for "Fox-Fordyce diseases", describing a papular itchy eruption, confined to the axillae, nipples and pubes, and considered to be a disfunction of the apocrine gland. - See Garrison & Morton No.3996 (1880); Ehring, Skin Diseases, 224 (1880); Pusey, Hist. Dermatol., 147-148; Shelly-G., Classics in Clinical Dermatology, p.324.

        A rare document signed by James Garfield as President, only five weeks before his shooting by Charles Guiteau, ordering Secretary James G. Blaine to affix the seal to the appointment of former Union General Stephen A. Hurlbut as U.S. Minister to Peru during the Pacific War against Chile

      "Partly-printed Document Signed, ""James A. Garfield,"" as President, 1 page, 8"" x 9.75"", Washington, May 27, 1881 authorizing the Secretary of State to affix the Seal of the United States to ""the envelope of my letter accrediting Stephen A. Hurlbut as Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary of the United States."" Expected folds, discreet mounting remnants on verso, just a hint of toning at extreme margins, else fine condition. Stephen A. Hurlbut (1815-1882) served in the Union Army during the Civil, commanding a division at Shiloh, and later commanding a corps during Sherman's Meridian Expedition of 1864. Following the war, Hurlbut served as Minister Resident to Columbia from 1869 to 1872. After a brief stint in Congress, Garfield appointed him Ambassador to Peru in 1881. His short tenure in Lima (he died a year later) was not uneventful as Peru and Bolivia were fighting Chile in the War of the Pacific (1879-1883). During his time in Peru, Hurlbut suffered an embarrassing altercation with Hugh Judson Kilpatrick (1836-1881), who Garfield had appointed United States Minister to Chile only two months prior. Both men (quite improperly) became partisans for the nations in which they resided and greatly complicated the peace negotiations between the two warring South American republics. "

        Die Endoskopie der Harnröhre und Blase.

      - Dtsch. Chir., Lfg.51. - Stuttgart, F.Enke, 1881, 8°, XVI, 240 pp., 22 Holzschnitte im Text und 108 fein kolorierte Abbildungen auf 3 ganzseitigen Tafeln, OBrosch.; unaufgeschn. ERSTE AUSGABE. - Der Begründer der URETHROSKOPIE ist der Wiener Hautarzt Joseph Grünfeld (1840-1910). Es ist die bedeutendste Leistung in der Zeit vor Nitze. Grünfeld faßt alle technischen Errungenschaften seit Bozzinis Lichtleiter in seinen Urethroskopen zusammen. Grünfeld ist auch der Erfinder des Harnröhrenspiegels. Grünfeld verwendete als Reflektor den 1841 von Friedrich Hofmann, Kreisphysikus in Burgsteinfurt, beschriebenen konkaven Hohlspiegel mit zentralem Sehloch und befestigt ihn mit einer Binde an der Stirn; er verschließt den offenen Harnröhrentubus am Schnabel mit einem schrägen Glasfenster und kann damit die untere und hintere Blasenwand sehen. Als erster entfernt er kleine Blasentumoren durch einen offenen Tubus unter Sicht. Er beschreibt den Unterschied von Harnsäure- und Phosphatsteinen etc. Auch sondiert er als erster das Ureterostium unter Kontaktendoskopie und in direkter Sicht (1876). Dabei drückt er das gerade Fenster bei der Frau gegen die Schleimhaut und macht sie so blutleer; das Ureterostium findet er als erster regelmäßig auf, mit einem Blickfeld von 8 mm Durchmesser und einem scheinbaren Abstand von 8-18 cm. Das Andrücken des Fensters an die Blasenwand ist notwendig, weil sonst "die Trübung des Harns hinderlich war". Er erprobt alle möglichen Arten der Beleuchtung, vor allem Gaslicht. Wenn irgend möglich, benutzt er aber helles Sonnenlicht oder Tageslicht, so daß seine Patienten immer auf dem Sprung waren, wenn in Wien die Sonne durch die Wolken brach. - First Edition. In 1876, Josef Grünfeld of Gyorke/Hungaria, a pioneer of cystoscopy, was the first to successfully catheterize the ureters under vision, using malleable catheters introduced into bladder alongside his glassended endoscope. He also was the first surgeon which observe a bladder tumor by cystoscope (1885). - Murphy, 183 & 351; Kiefer Cat. 251; Nicht bei Benjamin Collection. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        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 Charite 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.

        Doctor Wortle's School

      London: Chapman and Hall, 1881. First edition. Hardcover. Near Fine. A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of the first edition, first printing, in 3/4 blue leather with coordinated blue cloth, top edge of the closed page blocks gilded (some modest rubbing to the board corners and tiny rubs to the spine ends -- bound without the catalogue); Trollope's tale of the Rev. Mr. Peacocke, an Englishman, who, while teaching in St. Louis, befriended the deserted wife of Ferdinand Lefroy, a man of bad character. Upon later confirming that Lefroy had died, he married the widow. Lefroy then reappeared, made himself known to the newly-wed couple, and then disappeared again. Peacocke promptly returned to England with his bride where the couple took positions at Doctor Wortle's school and grew quite popular. Rumors of their past emerged and Peacocke confessed his unintentional bigamy to his employer. Lefroy's brother turned up intent on blackmail, found that Peacocke's secret had already been discovered, abandoned his blackmailing scheme and acknowledged that Ferdinand Lefroy had indeed died subsequent to the Peacocke's marriage. What then, was to be done respecting the Peacocke's bigamous marriage and their employment at the school? A Very Good + to Near Fine copy of a rather uncommon Trollope novel.
