Sadleir, 2066, listing the copy from the publisher’s file; Wolff lists only a later German reprint; Hubin, p.346.

        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.

      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.

      Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, London 1881 - 2nd edition, lt. blue cloth, good plus. Both volumes a little shaken, foxed on top edge, less on foreedge, spines darkened. Books were bound with signatures stapled rather than sewn, and this is not a good idea; the staples are rusted, and some signatures are loosening. Moderate foxing in text at beginnings and ends. All plates and maps are present, but the folding map in rear of vol. 2 (with hand-colored routes and rivers) has been repaired with packing tape, now replaced with archival tape, but stained brown where the old tape was. 424 + 422 pp., index in vol. 2.

        Address Delivered at the Dedication of the Hall of the Boston Medical Library Association, on December III, MDCCCLXXVIII ... Report of the Librarian James R. Chadwick

      Cambridge: Printed at the Riverside Press. 1881. First. First edition. Printed wrappers. 39,18pp. Chips to the corners of the first several leaves, and general wear, an about very good copy. Inscribed by Chadwick: "Dr. Weir Mitchell with regards of James R. Chadwick." With S. Weir Mitchell's ownership stamp on the front wrap and title page. Chadwick's report is paginated separately from the Holmes Address. Like Oliver Wendell Holmes, Silas Weir Mitchell was both a distinguished physician and a successful literary figure, and Blanck's Bibliography of American Literature lists both non-fiction and fiction titles by him. As a doctor he was known both for his work on gunshot wounds and for his work on nervous diseases, both studies made possible by the abundance of cases during the American Civil War. He was Charlotte Perkins Gilman's doctor and his prescription to her for the rest cure that he pioneered provided the idea for The Yellow Wallpaper. He also treated Edith Wharton for nervous affliction. Among Mitchell's notable fiction, he is remembered for historical novels such as Hugh Wynne, Free Quaker, and the children's tale The Wonderful Stories of Fuz-Buz the Fly. .
