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]

        A Poet's Harvest Home

      Eliot Stock, London 1882 - pp (xi) 155. 12mo (6 1/2" x 4 1/4"). A rare Presentation Copy from the author, William Bell Scott to his friend, Professor John Nichol, "with affectionate remembs. November 1882". Featuring original engraved artwork within oval frames by the author on front board, title page, as well as two additional within. In cream-colored binding with title, author and illustration in red ink on front board; spine plain, with red title and author and paper sticker in old ink. Engraved Bookplate inside front cover: University of Aberdeen, English Class Library (in old ink). Also rubber stamped in red: "withdrawn from Aberdeen University Library." Condition: overall Very Good, with heavy dust-soiling to spine and less so to covers. T.e.g.,otherwise the laid paper pages are untrimmed and charmingly offset. Ungilt edges are age somewhat age-toned, elsewise, interior pages are clean and tight. One small tear to page 5. One small edit in ink, p. 153 (could be by author's hand). Numerous engraved initial caps and dingbats contained within. Dedicated to W.M. Rossetti; this volume was published only a day before the demise of D.G. Rossetti, William's bother and Scott's dear friend. Signed presentation copies were despatched to many of his friends of the Pre-Raphaelite circle: C. Rossetti, Swinburne, Holman Hunt, as well as William Morris. Scott’s Autobiographical Notes (1892) records the touching notes and verses sent him in thanks by Christina Rossetti and Swinburne; Morris congratulates him on a well-produced book. These missives recognize the mutual loss felt by the group of artists. Scott could not attend Rossetti's funeral , being ill. This volume was, in fact, Scott’s valedictory work of poetry, written when he was seventy years old and entering a period of decline due to angina pectoris which severely limited his travel. He would die in November of 1890. Scott records in the Notes that he wrote A Harvest Home "without premeditation and with quite a novel feeling of spontaneity. every line to be employed in its development, came to me as if from memory, they were written down in pencil on pieces of paper I had placed under my pillow the night before." (Vol.2,pp. 303-304.) *** The recipient of this copy, PROFESSOR JOHN NICHOL, (1833-1894) was the first Regius Professor of English Language and Literature at the University of Glasgow. The son of an academic, Nichol was an accomplished biographer, essayist, literary critic, lecturer and sometime poet. Warm correspondence spanning the 1880's exists between Nichol and Bell (See Memoir of John Nichol, J. Maclehose, Glasgow, 1896) wherein Bell comments on Nichols's The Death of Theistodes and Other Poems which Bell declares "rouse (him) like the sound of a trumpet." The two visited each other in Ayrshire, and Nichol attended Bell's funeral in 1890. [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

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!"

Minois fripons, jupes fripées, croquis et binettes de cuirassiers à pied ou à cheval, galants rendez-vous qui se terminent d?une façon grotesque, il y a de tout un peu, et la bonne humeur y rit sans malice d?un bout à l?autre. Décidément le crayon, cette fois, a été mieux taillé que la plume.»Charmant recueil de dessins originaux, joliment relié par Kieffer.

After the Indian Rebellion of 1857, Bell lost his position in Nagpur, for complaining over the head of his immediate superior about the treatment of the Ranis of the Nagpur kingdom. In Madras in the early 1860s, he was secretary of the Madras Literary Society, and edited its Madras Journal in 1861. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]

        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.
