        Julia Ward Howe pens a stanza of her most famous composition, "Battle Hymn of the Republic"

      "Autograph Quotation Signed, ""Julia Ward Howe,"" and ""J. W. H.,"" 2 pages, 8"" x 10"", Boston, November 17, 1881, being the fifth stanza of ""The Battle Hymn of the Republic,"" transcribed for collector William J. Bok in Brooklyn. Light horizontal creases, very light soiling, a small news clipping affixed to verso, else fine condition. Howe writes, in full: ""In the beauty of the lilies Christ was bornacross the sea,With a glory in his bosom that transfiguresyou and me;As he died to make men holy, let us dieto make men free,While God is marching on."" On the verso she adds a short note: ""Thanks for your kind letter. I send the enclosed with pleasure. J.W.H."" First composed in 1860 (according to a notation by Howe in this transcription), the poem was placed to music, using the tune from the popular song, ""John Brown's Body,"" and published in February 1862. It became an instant hit and has remained a popular American patriotic song to this day."

        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'.

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.

"A collection of plates on Indian textiles from the Victoria & Albert Museum which include many designs for turbans, garments, scarf and mats. The museum's Indian collections have their origins in the East India Company's Museum, or Oriental Repository, founded in 1791. In 1881, the year of publication of the present book, Caspar Purdon Clarke, who had arranged the new Indian section, was sent to India to expand the collections with instructions to collect objects in everyday production in order to encourage the 'native art manufactures' of India. It was also intended that these would provide models of design and ornamentation for British manufacturers and art students. Clarke's purchases included probably the museum's largest single acquisition of Indian textiles, in all more than a thousand examples of textiles and dress." - Christie's Sale 4826, Lot 194, 25 April 2012.

The museum's Indian collections have their origins in the East India Company's Museum, or Oriental Repository, founded in 1791. In 1881, the year of publication of the present book, Caspar Purdon Clarke, who had arranged the new Indian section, was sent to India to expand the collections with instructions to collect objects in everyday production in order to encourage the 'native art manufactures' of India. It was also intended that these would provide models of design and ornamentation for British manufacturers and art students. Clarke's purchases included probably the museum's largest single acquisition of Indian textiles, in all more than a thousand examples of textiles and dress." - Christie's Sale 4826, Lot 194, 25 April 2012.

        Album of theatrical photographs, prints, original art and clippings relating to the career of French stage actor Clément-Just

      [Paris], ca. 1860-1881 - The personal photo album and scrapbook of the celebrated 19th-century French stage actor Clément-Just, with striking vintage albumen and salted paper print photographs of the actor in costume, all signed by Clément- Just and many captioned with the name of the play and the theater where it was performed. Clément-Just specialized in historical costume dramas, plays with titles such as Mazarin, Henri II, La Prise de Pékin, La Chouanne, Jeanne D'Arc and Monte Cristo, and the photographs are noteworthy for their elaborate display of costume. Clément-Just is nearly unrecognizable from photograph to photograph as he undergoes extreme changes in costume, make-up and hair style. Laid-in to the album is a collection of contemporary French theater newspaper clippings concerning Clemént-Just's career, including an 1875 issue of Paris-Theatre which is adorned on its front page with a cliché print of the actor (THEATER) Oblong folio. 14 albumen and 3 salted paper prints (10-1/2 x 8 in.) mounted on album leaves, most of Clément-Just in costume, 5 cartes-de- visite and 3 cabinet cards of Clément-Just, all signed ("C. Just") and many captioned on the mount with title of play and date, with 3 original watercolor sketches and numerous prints. Album leaves worn, some separated at the gutter, photographs generally fine and unfaded, some imperfections in the developing processes or deteriorations to a few prints, album worn, covers detached. With binder's ticket of Deschamps, Paris on front pastedown [Attributes: Signed Copy]

        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.

        Ueber die von Herrn Professor Billroth ausgeführten Resectionen des Carcinomatösen Pylorus.

      . Wien, Wilhelm Braumüller, 1881, 8°, (6), 53, (3) pp., 3 lith. Taf.; 42pp. Verlagsverzeichnis, feienr Halbledereinband; St.a.Tit.. ERSTE ERFOLGREICHE MAGENRESEKTION - BILLROTH I - - Erste und einzige Auflage der sehr seltenen ersten Monographie der Magenchirurgie! - - Im August des Jahres 1877 schloss Professor Billroth seinen Aufsatz über eine erfolgreiche Gasteroraphie mit folgenden Worten : "Es ist von dieser Operation zur Resection eines Stückes carcinomatös degenerirten Magens nur noch ein kleiner Schritt zu machen, wie ihn jüngst Czerny von der Oesophagotomie zur Resection eines carcinomatös degenerirten Stückes Oesophagus mit glücklichem Erfolge gemacht hat." - Zwei Jahre später gab Herrn Prof. Billroth, ein Fall von gelungener Enteroraphie von Neuem Gelegenheit, sich über die Frage der Magenresection in folgender Weise auszusprechen: "Nachdem früher von mir gezeigt wurde, dass man Magenwunden ebenso wie den Darm vernähen kann, ohne fürchten zu müssen, dass der 'Verdauungssaft die Heilung per primam hindert, so steht nun anatomisch, physiologisch und technisch der partiellen Resection des Magens beim Menschen (z. B. wegen Carcinom) nichts mehr im Wege. Es muss gelingen!" - Und wiederum zwei Jahre später ist es Billroth gelungen, am 29. Jänner 1881 bei einer 43 jährigen Frau den carcinomatösen Pylorus mit Glück zu reseciren! - Es ist, soweit mir die Literatur bekannt ist, der dritte Fall von Pylorus-Resection, die am lebenden Menschen überhaupt versucht und ausgeführt wurde, der erste, welcher in Genesung endigte. .." - Als Billroth nach seiner ersten und gelungenen Resection des carcinomatösen Pylorus in einem Briefe an Herrn Dr. Wittelshofer eine vorläufige Mitteilung darüber machte, kam uns nachträglich die Nachricht zu, das Rydygier in Culm bereits am 16.November 1880 bei einem 64jährigen Manne einen carcinomatösen Pylorus resecirt hatte; die zweite Pylorus-Extirpation , welche am lebenden Menschen unternommen worden war. Seitdem hat Rydygier seine Operationsmethode, auf die wir später noch einmal des Genaueren zurückkommen müssen, eingehend auseinandergesetzt, Rydygier's Kranker starb zwölf Stunden nach der Operation." Wölfler, Einleitung (26.April 1881) - - First successful resection of the pylorus for cancer, the Billroth I operation.

        Biologia Centrali-Americana, or contribution to the knowledge of the Fauna and Flora of Mexico and Central America: COLEOPTERA by H.W. Bates, D. Sharp and others.

      London 1881-1911. 7 volumes bound in 18. 4to (305 x 245mm). pp. x, 316; xv, 824; xii, 717; xii, 432; xv, 690; xii, 372; xxxiv, 572; x, 494; vi, 354; vii, 750; vii, 513; (6), 396; vi, 221; xii, 525; xx, 625; (4), 374; xii, 276; x, 249, with 350 lithographed plates of which 304 finely hand-coloured. Contemporary half leather, spines have been a bit crudely rebacked and 3 volumes in later cloth. The rare coloured issue of the complete coleoptera section of this highly important work on the fauna and flora of Central America. 'The best example of an entomologist who devoted his main efforts to the study of exotic faunas was H.W. Bates (1825-1892). In his early career he spent more than ten years in South America, partly in company with the famous A.R. Wallace; he was a great general biologist, the first to discover the form of mimicry in butterflies that afterwards was named after him. He worked on different insect groups, with his first paper published in 1843. After 1870 he almost exclusively turned to Coleoptera and may be termed the father of coleopterology not only for tropical America, as manifested by his volumes on Carabidae, Longicornia, and Lamellicornia in Godman & Salvin's 'Biologia Centrali-Americana' (Smith, R.T., History of Entomology p. 145)./The whole work was published in 215 parts in 63 volumes from 1875-1915. It was 'the most thorough study of the animals, plants, and human beings of Central America ever attempted' (Nature in the New World p. 187). The zoological section described 38,637 animals, approximately half as new species and half as new genera. Japanese stamp of Mr. Kikumaro Okano on titles.//B.M. (Nat. Hist) VI, p. 380.
