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.

        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."

        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 . [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        Autograph Manuscript, signed ("Rose Hartwick Thorpe"), two stanzas from "Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight"

      Grand Rapids, Mich, 1882. 24 lines, fair copy, in ink, on single folded sheet. 1 vols. 8vo. Accompanied by a 2 pp. ALS from Thorpe, conveying the ms in response to the recipient's request. Both in fine condition. 24 lines, fair copy, in ink, on single folded sheet. 1 vols. 8vo. "Curfew Shall Not Ring Tonight". Two stanzas from the immensely popular popular song, in its day, about a young girl during the Protectorate who saves the life of her Cavalier lover from a sentence of death"She has reached the topmost ladder, o'er her hangs the great dark bell;Awful is the gloom beneath her, like the pathway down to hell.See! the ponderous tongue is swinging; 'tis the hour of curfew now,And the sight has chilled her bosom, stopped her breath, and paled her brow.Shall she let it ring? No, never! Her eyes flash with sudden light,As she springs, and grasps it firmly: "Curfew shall not ring to-night!"Out she swung,-- far out. The city Seemed a speck of light below,--There twixt heaven and earth suspended, As the bell swung to and fro.And the sexton at the bell-rope, old and deaf, heard not the bell,Sadly thought that twilight curfew rang young Basil's funeral knell."Still the maiden, clinging firmly, quivering lip and fair face white,Stilled her frightened heart's wild throbbing: "Curfew shall not ring tonight!"

        Essai sur L'histoire Naturelle des Vertebres de la Province et des Departements Circonvoisins: Vertebres Anallantantoidiens (Poissons et Batraciens)

      Marseillie: Marius Lebon, 1882. First edition.. The spine is sunned which has caused the leather to turn into golden tan, the title is fully readable on the spine, the text is clean and unused with some pages uncut and unopened; a tight and clean copy in very good condition.. Pp. (7), 8-425 (3, index); 44 text-figures (line-drawings and halftones of fishes and frogs). Publisher's original reddish cloth over marbled boards, the spine is lettered in gilt and with blind-stamped panel lines, original marbled endpapers, sm 4to (10 x 6.5 inches; 255 x 170 mm). This work provides a natural history of the fishes and amphibians inhabiting the southern provinces of France. Jean Marius Francois Reguis (1850-1908) studied pharmacy at the School of Medicine in Marseille where he studied under Charles Lespes, Antoine-Fortune Marion, Alphonse Derbs, and Edouard Marie Heckel. After finishing his education, he moved to Meyrargues in southwest France to begin his studies on the batrachians, reptiles, birds, mammals, anthropology, invertebrates, botany, and geology of the area. He later joined the Faculty of Sciences at Marseille when he began writing a 16 volume encyclopedia on the natural history of southern France. Between 1876 and 1904 he published numerous monographs and journal articles on these topics, but they were never formally organized into his encyclopedia. This book appears to be one of the volumes in Regius' proposed encyclopedia. This volume has long tables of the species Regius described in the volume. Due to the extreme scarcity of the work, this volume was likely published in an edition of 500 copies or less. All of his published works are very hard to find. Regius died in 1908 after a lifetime of studying zoology, mycology, and botany of southern France. This volume is warmly inscribed by the author to F. Letarte of Paris, dated July 30, 1882. Later from the library of ichthyologist J. Bohlke with his small name stamp at the bottom of the title page and the dedication page. A rare regional work that seldom comes up for sale.

First volume: 18 double-page coloured images with woodcut, hand-coloured, colour-printed, letterpress and manuscript elements, depicting military battle formation plans (exercises 1-9 and 9 general formations), mounted to form a concertina fold-out, the mounts with blue/green silked edges; Second volume: double page manuscript introduction by Frandon bound in at the end, 24 double-page coloured images with woodcut, hand-coloured, colour-printed, letterpress and manuscript elements depicting military formation plans (exercises 1-24), mounted to form a concertina fold-out, the mounts with blue/green silked edges. Uniform binding of typical form: bevelled wooden boards, the upper cover of each work with the titles in Chinese characters cut out of black velvet mounted on gilt and red paper backing, with a manuscript title in French in black ink on red paper framed with card, each volume within a modern red cloth chemise, all contained within a single red morocco-backed cloth, spine gilt Provenance: Ernest Louis François Paul Frandon (1842-1904, signatures, text, etc.) A unique pair of manuscript Chinese military albums: a relic of the Sino-French War of 1883-1885. Ernest Frandon enjoyed a long and distinguished diplomatic career most of which was spent in a part of the world of great interest to France. Frandon describes this career in some detail in the manuscript 'Etat de Services' which he submitted when he was being considered for a Legion d'Honneur award in 1891. After working briefly in Spain, Frandon moved to Yokohama in November 1880. In November 1882 he received his first posting to China in Shanghai. His work on the present albums date to the period from April 1883 when he was appointed 'gerant' or manager at the French Vice Consulat at Foutcheou (Fuzhow) in Fujian province. From July 1884 until the beginning of March 1885 he served in Calcutta, before being appointed Vice Consul in Kobe, Japan. He remained there for less than a year before returning to Fuzhow as French Vice Consul at the end of June 1885 where he appears to have remained for the rest of his active career (he retired in 1900). The early period of Frandon's first tour in Fuzhow seems to have been particularly eventful: he was able to provide important information about the harbour at Fuzhow, the Chinese fleet and the new naval yard (built under the supervision of Frenchmen). This all proved to be very useful to Admiral Amedee Courbet during the battle of Fuzhow when the vessels of the French Far East Squadron virtually destroyed the Fujian Fleet, one of China's four regional fleets. Specifically, in his 'Etat de Services' he notes that he sent a report on the defences of Fuzhow and that he found for Courbet the pilots necessary for the fleet to gain entry to the harbour. It appears that the gathering of military and naval intelligence was a significant part of Frandon's duties, and the present albums fall squarely into that category. In fact, according to his 'Etat de Services', Frandon clearly made maximum use of his command of languages during his diplomatic career and submitted a great many well-received reports on numerous aspects of his host nations' life and character. These appear to have varied widely in form, from straight-forward written reports, to the present albums which appear to be specifically referred to by Frandon, as reports on "les excercises militaries Chinois" and "les Forces militaries du Celeste Empire et l'effectif Europeen necessaire pour les vaincre." Frandon is also responsible for specially-commissioned albums of photographs of Chinese manufactured goods (these were exhibited recently to wide acclaim), to actual samples of 'native' goods and manufactures, to 'native' plants, all of which he collected and sent them back to France. Taking a pair of traditional military text-books as his starting point, Frandon here explains (in red ink) and interprets (in black ink) the text and diagrams. As he states in [Attributes: Hard Cover]
