        Der Zeitgeist. Ein israelitisches Familienblatt. Organ für die Interessen des amerikanischen Judenthums

      Adolf & Isaac S. Moses & Emil G. Hirsch, Milwaukee 1882 - Folio. 1040pp., Vol. 1, Nos. 1-26, Vol. 2, Nos. 7-26, Vol. 3, Nos. 1-18, 20 and 21, total of 65 issues. Bound in 20th century blue cloth with gilt lettering on spine. Orange endpapers. Zeitgeist (Spirit of the Time) was a biweekly organ for Jewish interests in the US started by the brothers Adolf and Isaac Moses in 1880. In 1881 the brothers Moses were joined by the reform Rabbi Emil G. Hirsch and continued publishing Der Zeitgeist until the end of 1882. Adolf Moses and Emil G. Hirsch both were influenced and had studied under Abraham Geiger in Germany. The Zeitgeist was a source for Rabbis, teachers and educated Jews in all aspects of contemporary issues and matters of dispute. It was intended to be a true Jewish family weekly for learning and entertainment. The mission for the publication is laid out in detail in its first issue of January 1, 1880 ("Der Zeitgeist soll nicht nur für den jüdischen Prediger bestimmtes, religiöses Zeit- und Streitfragen gewidmetes Blatt sein, sondern vor Allem ein israelitisches Familienblatt im vollsten Sinne des Wortes bilden. Für die jüdische Familie, den Stolz und Zauber unseres Stammes, solle 'der Zeitgeist' eine Quelle der Belehrung und edlen Zerstreuung werden"). Der Zeitgeist focussed on Jewish-American events to be presented and interpreted from a "liberal viewpoint." Next to its aim to publish material helpful for a better understanding of Judaism in general, it clearly states that in religious matters it will represent a reasoned Jewish reform approach. Each of the issues contained a mix of entertaining stories and poetry, reports on events in the US and Germany, developments in the American religious discussion, e.g. the woman in the Talmud, eulogies and commemorative addresses, practical tips, and some advertisements. Vol. I complete, vol. II missing first 6 issues, vol. III missing nos. 19 and 22-26. Only 4 locations OCLC. Text in German. Binding rubbed with light wear along edges. Stamps of Jewish Institute of Religion and Klau Library (Withdrawn from Collection) on title page. Some age toning of issues. Light, sporadic foxing and a few minor chips to foredge. Occasionally small remnants of paper glued to pages. Binding and interior in overall good to very good condition. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

      1882. Hi, I recently purchased a set of Wisdens and the first 50 of the run were in a suitcase that had not been opened for over 50 years. This lot is an 1882 Original Paperback Wisden. It has tape to the spine. It is in Very Good Condition for the year. The tape is neatly done and holds the book together well, the covers have some marks and age toning , mainly to the bottom of the rear cover. Internally it is very nice and clean and hasn't been opened for a while. No restoration other than the tape applied many years ago. A hard year to find.

        Christowell.

      A Dartmoor Tale. By R.D. Blackmore, Author of "Mary Anerley," etc. In three volumes. London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, Crown Buildings, 188, Fleet Street, 1882 [?December, 1881]. (All rights reserved.) 3 Vols.; half-titles not called for; final blank in volumes one and three; pp.[iv]+302+[ii]; [iv]+300; [iv]+317+[iii]; diagonal fine ribbed maroon cloth, ruled blind, blocked with publisher's monogram within ruled circle, blind, on sides, ruled blind, lettered and with short rule gilt on spine; t.e. uncut, fore-edges rough trimmed; end-papers coated cream. Barely perceptible fading to cloth of spines; occasional light foxing; otherwise a fine copy. Tipped onto the front end-papers of volumes one and two are signed holograph letters from the author to a Dr. Wood dated, from Paddington, May 22nd 1878 (approximately 200 words), and Dec 8th 1881 (approximately 70 words), the first thanking Dr. Wood (who is apparently in Devon) for the copies of "his elegant books", saying of himself that he has "given up the fiction" and is absorbed in gardening, and mentioning some friends, etc.; the second speaking of "the loss of a relation" and giving his reasons for never furnishing biographical particulars about himself. The front pastedown in each volume bears the armorial bookplate of Laurence Bernard Gomme. The production of this copy is a little curious, the prelims. of each volume, and the final leaf, U6 in volume two and X8 in volume three, being on a different paper stock of a pleasantly creamier colour than the rest of the book. U6, the final leaf of text in volume two, and the blank X8 in volume three, are therefore single insets, as are what should have been their conjugates, U1 and X1, those leaves being of the regular paper stock. U6 and X8 at least, and possibly the prelims. to all the volumes, are therefore cancels. This is not mentioned either by Sadleir or Wolff, and was not so in another copy that passed through our hands some time ago. Since the present copy may well have been given to Dr. Wood by the author, as is suggested by the date on the second letter, it is possible that it was a final book proof sent to Blackmore to check some corrected text. Sadleir, 220; Wolff, 527. Number nine on Sadleir's schedule of comparative scarcities. All books listed by Robert Temple are first editions unless otherwise stated.

St. Bonaventure's love of wisdom was intimately related to his love of God -- so much so that he is called the "Seraphic Doctor" for the ardor that accompanied his great mind. He is regarded as one of Christianity's greatest mystics as well as philosophers. He was born in Bagnorea, Italy, and legend says that it was St. Francis of Assisi who gave him the name of Bonaventure after curing him of a serious and life-threatening childhood disease. In 1238, he became a Franciscan and devoted himself to teaching theology and scripture in Paris. Bonventure died in 1274 and he was declared a Doctor of the Church in 1588.

        LEAVES OF GRASS

      Philadelphia: Rees Welsh, 1882. First Thus. Cloth. Very good+ in no dust jacket if issued. First Philadelphia edition. Slip inserted at front announcing Specimen Days as ready in September and advertising Leaves of Grass. Crown 8vo (18.5 x 12 cm). [advertisement] 382 pp. Original mustard cloth with gilt pictorial design of a butterfly and lettering to spine; gilt facsimile signature to front cover. Tissue-guarded, steel-engraved portrait by Samuel Hollyer. Light gray endpapers. Tight, clean copy. Spine ends creased, cloth with light wear, indistinguishable tipped-in leaf replaces first blank, tissue guard foxed. Walt Whitman (1819-1892) is considered one of the most influential American poets. Leaves of Grass was a very controversial collection of poetry for its time. This edition was largely a reprint of the Boston 1881-1882 suppressed edition, whose publisher stopped issuing the work on the suggestion of obscenity by the Massachusetts attorney general. Despite the legal pressure, Rees Welsh issued four printings, indistinguishable by BAL; a continual work in progress, at least sixteen alterations were made, including the addition of "returning in reminiscence," and the replacement of "the slaughter and environment" by "the craft, the fatal environment." A well-preserved, unique edition with uncommon slip tipped-in at front endpapers. BAL 21418, 21419. Johnson p.528. Rare Book Hub online.

To Miss Macgregor, citing the Edda and at some length a point regarding Freyja and vidar: "The Edda only says that Freyja wandered to far lands and unknown nations to seek Odur, 'weeping golden tears for him'. In the same passage Gylfi's incantation, 35, her necklace (Brisinga-men, which is interpreted now as being made from Rhine-gold of the Breis-gau) is mentioned. No meeting with Vidar is recorded either in the poetic or prose Edda.

        Koch, Robert: Ueber die Aetiologie der Tuberculose (pp.56-79). - Enthält die erste Mitteilung über Paul Ehrlichs Färbemethode.

      Verh. Kongr. Inn. Med.,1. - Wiesbaden, 20.-22. April 1882. - Wiesbaden, Verlag von J.F. Bergmann, 1882, 8, 215 pp., orig. Broschur unbeschnittenes Exemplar. Erstdruck! "Es schien anfangs so, als ob die Färbung in ausreichender Weise nur durch diese Methylenblau Lösung zu erzielen sei. Aber wie es so oft in der Wissenschaft geht, dass eine Entdeckung neue hervorruft, so auch hier. Dr. Ehrlich hat, indem er nach dem selben Prinzip verfuhr, aber in anderen Weise die Anilinlösung in alkalischen Zustand versetzte, ausgezeichnete Färberesultate bekommen. Die Tuberkelbacterien lassen sich nach seinem Verfahren nicht blos mit Methylenblau, sondern auch mit anderen Anilinfarben, z.,B. Fuchsin ..." Robert Koch (20. April 1882 (!))Robert Koch hatte am 24. März 1882 seine Entdeckung des Tuberkelbazillus in einer Sitzung der Berliner Physiologischen Gesellschaft bekannt gegeben Ehrlich hat darüber in einem Nachruf auf Koch in der Frankfurter Zeitung 1910, Nr. 150 geschrieben:"Es war in einem kleinen Raum des Physiologischen Instituts, als Koch in schlichten und klaren Worten unter Vorlegung zahlloser Präparate und Beweisstücke die Ätiologie der Tuberkulose mit überzeugender Kraft darlegte. Jeder, der diesem Vortrage beigewohnt hatte, war ergriffen, und ich muß sagen, daß mir jener Abend stets als mein größtes wissenschaftliches Erlebnis in Erinnerung geblieben ist."Schon am nächsten Tage konnte Ehrlich seine neue Färbemethode dem Entdecker des Tuberkelbazillus, Robert Koch, demonstrieren. Seine färberischen Studien über das Amyloid hatten ihm einige Jahre vorher gezeigt, daß ein käufliches, augenscheinlich verunreinigtes Methylviolett besser färbe, als reinere Produkte. Er suchte deshalb die färberisch "wichtige Verunreinigung und kam auf das Anilin. In der Tat vermochte er ein reines Methylviolett durch Hinzufügen von Anilin färberisch wirksamer zu machen. Auch hatte Ehrlich bei diesen Anilinfärbeversuchen an tuberkulösen Organen stäbchenartige, gefärbte Gebilde gesehen, an die er sich bei dem Koch sehen Vortrage wieder erinnerte, und auf Grund des Kochschen Vortrages versuchte er sofort Tuberkelbazillen nach diesem Färbeprinzip zu färben und schuf damit die Grundlage für alle späteren Tuberkelbazillenfärbungen. In der Sitzung des Berliner Vereins für innere Medizin vom 1. Mai gab er die Methode genau bekannt: "Ich verfahre derart, daß ich mittels Präpariernadeln aus dem Sputum ein Partikelchen herausnehme und zwischen zwei Deckgläsern platt presse. Es ist zweckmäßig, Deckgläser von bestimmter Dicke zu nehmen, und habe ich gefunden, daß solche von 0,10 bis 0,12 mm am empfehlenswertesten sind. Es gelingt unter diesen Bedingungen leicht, aus dem kleinen Pfropf des Sputums gleichmäßige dünne Lagen zu erhalten. Man zieht dann beide Gläser auseinander und bekommt zwei dünne Schichten, die leicht lufttrocken werden. Diese Präparate sind noch nicht recht geeignet. Es ist zweckmäßig, das Eiweiß zu fixieren. Ich selbst habe gewöhnlich dies dadurch bewirkt, daß das Präparat durch eine Stunde auf 100 bis no erhalten wird, jedoch gibt es für die Praxis ein zweckmäßigeres Verfahren, dessen Anwendung ich im Kaiserlichen Gesundheitsamte gesehen habe und das darin besteht, daß man das lufttrockene Präparat mittels einer Pinzette dreimal durch die Flamme eines Bunsenschen Gasbrenners zieht. Für die Färbung verwende ich ein mit Anilinöl gesättigtes Wasser, das sich durch Schütteln von Wasser mit überschüssigem Anilinöl und Filtrieren durch ein angefeuchtetes Filter binnen wenigen Minuten herstellen läßt. Der so gewonnenen wasserklaren Flüssigkeit fügt man tropfenweise von einer gesättigten alkoholischen Fuchsin- oder Methylviolettlösung so lange hinzu, bis eine deutliche Opaleszenz der Flüssigkeit eintritt, die die Sättigung mit Farbstoff anzeigt. Auf dieser Flüssigkeit läßt man die Präparate schwimmen und sieht sie binnen % bis % Stunde intensiv in dem betreffenden Farbton sich anfärben. Die isolierte Tinktion der Tuberkulosebazillen gelingt nun unter dem Einfluß des Vesuvin gar nicht oder nur sehr langsam, es ist erforderlich, Säuren anzuwenden, und bin ich bald zur Anwendung starker, ich möchte sagen, heroischer, übergegangen. Am meisten empfiehlt sich ein Säuregemisch, das aus 1 Volumen offizineller Salpetersäure und 2 Voluminibus Wasser besteht. Es empfiehlt sich, den Untergrund anzufärben und zwar, wenn das Präparat violett ist, gelb, wenn es rot ist, blau. Es ist mir gelungen, den Bazillus in allen basischen Anilinfarben, selbst in Bismarckbraun anzufärben, und ergibt sich hieraus, daß die Substanz des Bazillus selbst sich in ihren färberischen Eigenschaften nicht von denjenigen der anderen Bakterienarten unterscheidet. Wenn nun aber dennoch der Tuberkulosenbazillus sich durch die Färbung von allen anderen Pilzen unterscheidet, so beruht dies auf dem Vorhandensein einer Hülle, der eigentümliche und spezifische Eigenschaften zukommen." Welche praktische Bedeutung R. Koch der Ehrlichschen Tuberkelbazillenfärbung zugeschrieben hat, geht aus seinen Worten, die einer Arbeit aus dem Jahre 1883 entnommen sind (Dr. R. Koch, Kritische Besprechung der gegen die Bedeutung der Tuberkelbazillen gerichteten Publikationen. Deutsche medizinische Wochenschrift, 1883, Nr. 10), hervor:... Es hatte sich bald herausgestellt, daß mit Hilfe des Ehrlichschen Färbungsverfahrens der Nachweis der Tuberkelbazillen diagnostisch bequem zu verwerten sei, und allein diesem Umstand ist es zu danken, daß man sich allgemein mit dem Aufsuchen der Bazillen im Sputum beschäftigt hat, während sich sonst wohl nur wenige Forscher mit den Tuberkelbazillen befaßt haben würden."
