        Ueber Pylorusresection.

      - Slg. klin. Vortr., 220. - Leipzig, Verlag von Breitkopf & Härtel, 1882, 8°, 40 pp., und 2 lith. Tafeln mit 12 Abbildungen, OBrosch. Sehr gutes Exemplar dieser Kostbarkeit der magenchirurgischen Literatur. Eines der ganz großen und wichtigen Dokumente aus der Geschichte der Magenchirurgie, zugleich auch die erste historische Darstellung der frühesten Pylorus-Resektionen, verfaßt von einem der drei Pioniere dieses segensreichen Eingriffes - - Pylorusresektion vor Billroth - Meilenstein der Abdominalchirurgie. - Ludwig Rydygier (1850-1920) gehört zu den zu Unrecht vergessenen Pionieren der moderenen Abdominalchirurgie. Er resizierte bereits 2 Monate vor Billroth, am 16. November 1880, ein großes Pyloruskarzinom. Der Patient verstarb 12 Stunden nach der Operation. Die von Billroth im Januar 1881 operierte Patientin überlebte 4 Monate. Seinen zweiten und dritten Patienten verlor Billroth ebenfalls postoperativ. - Rydygier gelang dagegen am 21.11.1881 die erste Pylorusresektion bei benigner Stenose (Ulcus duodeni). Die Patientin überlebte den Eingriff 19 Jahre! Rydygier war es auch, der die Klemme zur Komprimierung des Magen- und Duodenalstumpfes einführte. In der vorliegenden Arbeit berichtet der Autor in aller Ausführlichkeit über die ca. 4 Stunden dauernde Operation. Eingehend werden auch die Vorteile des "Compressorium" geschildert. Rydygier schreibt "Nach dem Gesammteindruck, den auf uns der Fall gemacht hat, glauben wir zu dem Ausspruch berechtigt zu sein, dass diese Operation gewiss eine Zukunft hat. - 2/1/2 Jahre nach Péans Operation erschienen; dessen Tat nimmt in Rydygiers "Zusammenstellung der bis jetzt bekannten Pylorusresectionen" natürlich den ersten Platz ein, von den weiteren zwischem dem 9.April 1879 und dem 3. Januar 1879 ausgeführten Resektionen waren leider nur weniger als 20 Porzent vom Erfolg gekrönt. - Ludwig Rydygiers Arbeit, im Erstdruck, ist einer der interessantesten und wichtigsten Titel in der Bauchchirugie.

Product illustrations throughout. Clean pages; first four leaves have some light edge-wear. Light soiling and edge-wear to the cover.

(See Santa Claus Does More than Deliver Toys by Okleshen, Baker, and Mittelstaedt.) This catalogue issued on 27 November for the 1882 Christmas season includes ten pages of gifts for children (toys, books, skates, paints, etc.), many illustrated including The Creeping Baby, Conjurer's Cabinets, Bagatelle Games, Magic Lanterns, Negro Target, Artillery Ten Pins, a Musical Santa Claus and Sleigh, a Singing Doll, Jubilee Monkey Velocipede, Tap-Dancing Toys, a Gyroscope, Toy Train, Sliced Puzzles, and more. Other products include Ladies Fur Coats, Lace Goods, Pocket Books, Fans, Jewelry, Toilet Sets, etc. Quite scarce. Not listed in Barlow & Reynolds. As of 2014 nothing similar listed at OCLC.

This, then, was the first volume available to the general reader to treat the subject.

        Flowering Cactus Blossom.

      Original Watercolor 1882-1890, Britain - A refined and rare original watercolor painted on clay-coated stock. Fine condition. Image size: 13 x 11 cm. Sheet size: 24 x 29.6 cm. With dedication leaf 'Edith Cast Faber from her Mother (a loving memento) painted by Mrs. J.A. Faber about 1882-1890'. Classified as florilegia: ornamental flowers painted for beauty rather than scientific or medicinal appeal, this lovely Flowering Cactus Blossom was evidently painted from nature by an accomplished hand. Although the art of flower painting was a favored, traditional pastime for genteel women of nineteenth century Britain, few works boast the refined sense of composition, color, light and shading as evidenced by the practiced, skillful execution of this still life. To date the works by Mrs. Faber are undocumented however this elegant composition clearly reflects her appreciation for and mature expression of the glories of the garden, the natural world and the still life tradition.

The author also penned Paris by Gaslight which touched on some of the same material but lacked the focused disapproval of the can-can exhibited here. The Jardin Mabille, founded in 1831, had by the 1880s, reached a level of popularity and perceived prurience that attracted tourists, scorn and imitators (e.g. the Moulin Rouge which opened in 1889) in roughly equal measure.

Our Government House in our City of Ottawa, this tenth day of July, in the year of our Lord, one thousand eight hundred and eighty two and in the forty sixth year of our reign. By Command. Signed by Marquess of Lorne, Governor General of Canada, Joseph-Alfred Mousseau, Secretary of State, Sir Alexander Campbell, Attorney General of Canada. Docketed on reverse including..Presented by Mrs. Madeleine McLelan Smith of Niagara-on-the-Lake - formerly of Kitchener… Archibald Woodbury McLelan, was a Canadian shipbuilder and politician, the sixth Lieutenant Governor of Nova Scotia. Archibald McLelan was educated in Great Village and joined his father's shipping and retail business. On his father's death in 1858 he succeeded him in the House of Assembly. Strongly opposed to confederation with Canada, McLelan was elected as the first federal member of parliament for Colchester as an Anti-Confederate. He reconciled himself to Confederation and was summoned to the Canadian Senate in 1869 where he sat as a Liberal-Conservative. He resigned from the Upper House to run again for the Canadian House of Commons in the 1881 federal election and was returned to parliament as a Conservative. President of the Privy Council (1881, May 20 - 1882 July 9), Minister of Marine and Fisheries (1882 July 10 - 1885 December 9). McLelan served from 10 December 1885-26 January 1887 as the Minister of Finance and Receiver General as well as Postmaster General (1887 January 27 - 1888 July 9.) in the second administration of Sir John A. Macdonald. He was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of Nova Scotia, July 10, 1888 and died in Halifax at the age of 65 while serving in this capacity.John George Edward Henry Douglas Sutherland Campbell, Marquess of Lorne and later 9th Duke of Argyll, married Queen Victoria's fourth daughter Louise at Windsor in 1871. The marriage was not a success, partly due to the fact that the groom was homosexual. After the turbulent early years of their marriage, the couple eventually reached a modus vivendi. While maintaining a façade of bourgeois respectability, Louise found fulfilment as a painter and sculptor, Lorne as a writer of books on travel. From 1878 to 1883, he was Governor-General of Canada, an appointment that was one of Disraeli's early experiments in imperial statecraft. Disraeli believed a royal princess resident in Canada would strengthen the links between crown and dominion. Ironically, Louise was a disaster - she hated colonial society and constantly invented excuses to absent herself. Lorne, however, performed creditably. He died at Kent House on the Isle of Wight in 1914.Joseph-Alfred Mousseau was a French Canadian lawyer, journalist, writer, politician, and judge. He was was first elected to the Canadian House of Commons as a Conservative Member of Parliament in 1874 In 1880, he was elevated to the Cabinet of Prime Minister Sir John A. Macdonald, serving first as president of the Queen's Privy Council of Canada, and then as Secretary of State for Canada. Mousseau left federal politics to become the sixth Premier of the province of Quebec from July 31, 1882, until his resignation on January 22, 1884, after being appointed as a judge. He died in Montreal in 1886.Sir Alexander Campbell, PC, KCMG, QC (March 9, 1822 - May 24, 1892) was an English-born, Canadian statesman and politician, and a father of Canadian Confederation. He studied law and was called to the bar in 1843. He became a partner in John A. Macdonald's law office. He was elected to the Legislative Council in 1858 and 1864, and served as the last Commissioner of Crown Lands 30 March 1864 - 30 June 1867. He attended the Quebec City Conference in 1864, and at Confederation was appointed to the Canadian Senate. He later held a number of ministerial posts in the Cabinet of Sir John A. Macdonald and was the sixth Lieutenant Governor of Ontario from 1887 to 1892. He died in office in Toronto in 1892, and was buried at Cataraqui Cemetery in Kingston, Ontario.

      Tipografia Giusti 1882 Prima edizione. Cm.21,8x13,1. Pg.360. Legatura in mz.tela con piatti marmorizzati e titoli in oro al dorso. Fondamentale studio sulla economia locale della Lunigiana e della Garfagnana opera dello storico Raffaello Raffaelli (Massa, 1813?1883). Laureato in legge a Modena e sposato con la nobildonna Giulia Provenzali, aveva già dato alle stampe tre anni prima la "Descrizione geografica, storica, economica della Garfagnana", sempre per i Tipi del Giusti. Il Raffaelli avviò la sua carriera politica nel 1836, nominato Segretario della Consulta Provinciale di Garfagnana, passando poi ad nel 1845 ad analoga carica a Massa, ove ricoprì anche l'incarico di Commissario Ducale per gli Affari Ecclesiastici. Fu in seguito Consultore Legale presso la Delegazione di Massa e nel 1856, a Modena Consultore di Governo per i Lavori Pubblici. Nel 1859, dopo la Guerra d'Indipendenza, si rifugiò con le milizie ducali a Fosdinovo e poi a Fivizzano. Fu fautore del ritorno della Garfagnana alla Provincia di Lucca, sostenendo, per quella terra allora assai povera, lo sviluppo della viabilità e la riapertura del Ginnasio a Castelnuovo.

        Bongo tribe, Sudan.

      c. 1882 - Three albumen prints. Fair tonal range and in good condition, pasted on original card, captions in manuscript. Dimensions: 155 by 110mm. (6.5 by 4.5 inches). A series of three photographs taken in the same location in Khartoum by Louis Vossion (1877-1955), a French diplomat who undertook postings to Sudan, Pacific, India. His interest in photography is suggested to be both personal, and professional in its reflection of diplomatic duties in remote areas. One of the photographs shows a girl from the Bongo ethnic group, one of the smaller groups of the White Nile region, with a long tradition in cattle-rearing and pasturage. The 19th century arrival of the Ottomans, Arabs, and subsequently the British, had a major impact on relations between the Nilotic groups. Whilst certain groups accommodated foreign rulers, others rebelled; causing inter-group aggression and hostility. The girl photographed is part of an ancient dance troupe, which had performed after the main meal with important members of the tribe. She is pictured wearing frayed leather garments and an amulet hung on a long, leather cord around her neck. On another photograph Vossion captured Fadl-el- Kerim, an Arab woman, and Aicha, a woman from the mountains of Djebel. They are part of the Nouba ethnic group, consisting of different peoples inhabiting the south of Sudan's Kordofan province. The group has African origins and settled in the region over thousands of years. They were fairly isolated until the nineteenth century, when Sudan came under Egyptian occupation. The violent rule of Mahdi and his successor, and British colonial rule also significantly shaped Nouba history. Today, Nouba is represented by over fifty tribes, approximating 2.5 million people. The third photograph features a group of five woman of varied ethnicity, who were slaves belonging to Ibrahim Effendi Khalil, leader of the Copte colony of Khartoum. Khartoum expanded, becoming the Sudanese capital in 1834, as a result of the prospering slave trade between 1825 and 1880. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
