        Die Aetiologie der Tuberkulose.

      extract from Berliner Klinische Wochenschrift (vol. 19), Berlin, 1882. pp. 221-230; 31 cm. Garrison/Morton 2331: "Discovery of the tubercle bacillus announced March 24, 1882. This paper also contains a statement of `Koch's postulates'." Dibner, Heralds of Science no. 134: "Using the advantage of new improvements in techniques such as photomicroscopy, staining, oil-immersed lenses, and pure cultures, Koch and his colleagues placed the new science of microbiology on a sound basis. In the above paper, a triumph in science and medicine, Koch isolated and identified the tubercle bacillus, establishing the infectious nature of the disease, and opened the way to combat one of the worst scourges of mankind. Using body fluids and blood serum as host, Koch was able to cause anthrax and tubercular organisms to grow outside the body." "Koch is really our medical Galileo, who... introduced us to a new world. It is not too much to say that the demonstrations by Koch of the 'bacillus tuberculosis' (1882), is, in its far-reaching results, one of the most momentous discoveries ever made." --Osler, Evolution of Modern Medicine. Koch was awarded the Nobel Prize for this work. Printing and the Mind of Man 366. OB 573. Vg, in marbled paper covers.

      Lon. , 1882.. 29 b/w photo plates. In 1880 Colonel Stuart Wortley and his wife visited Tahiti, a place they loved. He was a noted photographer who made some technical advances in the collodion process, and whose photographs of Italy and Tahiti are still collected. He took some wonderful photographs during their stay in Tahiti, and she wrote the knowledgeable and entertaining text. The photographic reproductions in this edition have the rich velvety appearance of actual prints. Though the text shows light foxing around the outer edges, each print is clean and free of foxing, and is protected by a tissue guard. Bound in original decorated cloth with an island scene in gold green and blue, all edges gilt. Slight lean to spine and minor wear to corners and spine ends. WITH A FULL PAGE INSCRIPTION FROM THE AUTHOR, CHRISTMAS 1882.

      234 pp. + plates. 8vo. Cloth. First edition. Illus. with 77 monochrome carbon print photographic plates. Buchanan 1. Two versions of this catalogue were produced, one without plates, and this, the illustrated version, with carbon prints by James Craig Annan (1864-1946), son of the Scottish photographer Thomas Annan. Annan was only 18 when he produced this series of prints (uncredited) for the spectacular Duke of Hamilton sale. There were 2213 lots auctioned over fifteen days in five sections which brought in 397, 000 British pounds! In addition to the paintings offered, which could have easily formed their own museum -works by Botticelli, Breugel, Da Vinci, Durer, Fra Angelico, Giorgione, Holbein, Rembrandt, Rubens, Titian, Van Dyke, Veronese, and more- there was French furniture, Asian bronzes and lacquers, Sevres and Desden porcelain, and decorative objects in profusion. Photographs were somewhat new to illustrating auctions and "this is an early use of photography for a sale catalogue, " according to William Buchanan in his "J. Craig Annan. Selected Texts and Bibliography, " (Oxford. 1994), p. 137. Annan would go on to become an important British pictorial photographer and one of its master photogravure printers, contributing both is own work and gravures for other British photographers to Stiglitz' Camera Work (the January 1914 issue -no. 45- was devoted entirely to him). Scarce, especially in such beautiful condition and in such a fine binding. A near fine copy, rubbing on verso of plates, plates numbered in pencil.

        Egenhändigt skrivet och undertecknat brev till G. Jean-Aubry.

      Daterat »Maison Casilhac, Banyuls-sur-Mer 5.1. 23 Pyr. or.». 2 s. »Det gläder mig mycket att Ert övriga arbete inte skall hindra Er att översätta Himlens hemlighet. Och att Ni tänker utge mina enaktare i bokform är ju likaså synnerligen glädjande. Tyvärr har jag ju ännu åstadkommit så litet både på detta område och andra, i varje fall mindre än jag tycker jag borde ha gjort. För närvarande är jag sysselsatt med ett skådespel av större format, kanske kan det komma att intressera Er. - Att Ni känner Hébertot är ju utmärkt, så bör saken lättare kunna ordnas. I en intervju i en svensk tidning har han yttrat att han kommer att uppföra H[imlens]. h[emlighet].» Lagerkvist skriver också att han bifogar en efterfrågad artikel om honom som varit införd i Politiken, »den uppehåller sig dock tyvärr inte så mycket vid vad ni gjort för mig men innehåller mest oriktigheter och överdrifter». Avslutningsvis diskuterar han möjligheterna att träffas, samt framför en hälsning till Louise Alvar.. G. Jean-Aubry var pseudonym för Jean-Frédéric-Emile Aubry (1882-1950), fransk musikkritiker och översättare, bl. a. av sin vän Joseph Conrad över vilken han även skrev en biografi. Jean-Aubry hade tillsammans med Louise Alvar gjort den första översättningen av Lagerkvist till Franska, »Le moment difficile», publicerad i La revue de Genève, 3 (1921), s. 733-47. Den 22 januari 1922 skickade Jean-Aubry arvodet med ett brev (det enda från honom som bevarats i Kungl. Bibliotekets Lagerkvistsamling). Föreliggande brev gäller en planerad översättning av Himlens hemlighet, vilken troligen inte utfördes, åtminstone tycks den inte ha publicerats. Inte heller några andra Lagerkvistöversättningar av Jean-Aubry tycks ha utgivits.<p>Teatermannen Jacques Hébertot, som nämns i brevet, hörde till dem som kommit att intressera sig för Lagerkvists dramatik. De gemensamma vännerna Rolf de Maré och »Nils de Dardel» hade gjort honom uppmärksam på den svenske författaren och han ville gärna uppföra något av honom, kanske just »Le secret du ciel» som han hört mycket talas om, och som Lagerkvist hoppades att Jean-Aubry skulle översätta. Hébertot och Lagerkvist utväxlade några brev rörande dessa planer, men något samarbete tycks inte ha blivit av. Lagerkvist sände emellertid Hébertot sin senaste bok via Dardel i slutet av oktober 1923, troligen Den osynlige, som utkom ett par veckor senare. Pär Lagerkvist uppger som synes ett antal olika avsändar­adresser under 1910- och 1920-talen, rot- och rastlösa år då han i långa perioder bodde i Danmark, Frankrike och Italien

        Savannah River to Saint Helena Sound including Calibogue Sound, Port Royal and Broad River

      London: Published by the Admiralty, May 1882. Engraving. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 25 1/4 x 38 1/4 inches. 27 x 40 inches. A fantastic Admiralty chart of the Savannah River to St. Helena Sound, produced by the British Hydrographic Office. The British Hydrographic Office was founded in 1795 by George III, who appointed Alexander Dalrymple as the first Hydrographer to the Admiralty. He immediately set to work but it was not until 1800 that the first Admiralty chart was published of the waters around Quiberon Bay in Brittany. Unlike the U. S. Coast Survey the Hydrographic Office was given permission to sell charts to the public and they produced a great number of sea charts covering every corner of the globe. Most of the Admiralty charts produced by the Hydrographic Office delineated coastline as well as high and low water marks and record depth of water as established by soundings. In addition these charts included information on shoals, reefs, and other navigational hazards that plagued mariners across the world. Thanks to the innovations of Sir Francis Beaufort, who developed the Beaufort Scale of wind strength, the British Hydrographic Office became one of the leading producers of sea charts. This large chart covers the Port Royal Sound including the Savannah River, the Calibogue Sound, and the Broad River. Water depths and sand bars are all carefully recorded, as are the various lighthouses along the coastline. This is an important sea chart of this area and a wonderful example of the maps produced by the British Hydrographic Office.

      1882. hardcover. Trollope, Anthony. WHY FRAU FROHMANN RAISED HER PRICES and Other Stories. London: Wm. Isbister, 1882. Original sage green cloth decorated in black. First Edition of this collection of five short stories, published in December 1881. In addition to the title story, they are "The Lady of Launay," "Christmas at Thompson Hall," "The Telegraph Girl" and "Alice Dugdale." Curiously, there is also a two volume Isbister edition of this book (though with continuous pagination), yet this single volume edition is earlier. Since Trollope had wanted the book to be published in one volume only, but then died a year later, Sadleir hypothesizes that Isbister grabbed the opportunity of issuing left-over copies of the book at a two-volume price now that its author could no longer complain. This copy is in sage green cloth, which is the color most often (though not frequently!) encountered; copies were also bound in blue and in scarlet, without priority. This is a very good-plus copy -- minor wear at the lower extremities, and a trace of soil on the front cover. Sadleir places FRAU FROHMANN in the upper half of Trollope's books in terms of scarcity, and in fact this is only the third copy (and first green one) that we have handled.

Since then he has occupied premises successively at 21 Buchanan Street, the house in which M'Nish, 'the modern Pythagorean' is said to have been born; at 8 Royal Bank Place, in Renfield Street, and in West Regent Street. Each of these shops has been a resort of the literati and bibliophiles of Glasgow in its day. Historian and antiquarian, journalist and poet have been wont to foregather in the back room there of an afternoon. What Mr. Hopkins does not know about editions, dates, peculiarities, and values is not worth knowing, and he is a connoisseur, not only of the outsides of the books, but of their contents. In books especially dealing with old Glasgow, and with the history and literature, ballads and songs of Scotland, he has a special interest, and he possesses an amazing knowledge of them. He has acted as the intermediary in many a famous transaction, and through him have remained at home many bibliographical rarities which otherwise might have left this country. He has also published several important works, including Napier's History of Partick, Ritson's Scottish Songs and quite recently, Fanjas de St. Fond's Journey through England and Scotland to the Hebrides in 1784. Mr. Hopkins is now assisted in his business by his son" (Who's Who in Glasgow 1929).

Nephew to the outstanding lithographer Walter Hood Fitch, John Nugent Fitch was fifty-two years old before his uncle and mentor died" (The Orchid observed, 23) "He (Williams) furnished the cultural notes for Mr. Robert Warner's 'Select Orchidaceous Plants', which was begun in 1862, and 1881 in association with Mr. Warner again, he commenced the publication of 'The Orchid Album', a monthly illustrated periodical which gained great popular favour" (Reinikka, History of the Orchid, p. 224). Most of the plates are handcoloured lithographs, some towards the end are chromolithographed. Nissen BBI, 2107; The Orchid Observed, 23; Great Flower Books p. 149.

      Boston & New York: Lee and Shepard / Charles T. Dillingham 1882. Boston & New York: Lee and Shepard / Charles T. Dillingham, 1882.. xiii,[1],372pp. Large, thick octavo. Half gilt calf and marbled boards, pictorial panels of original binding bound in. Frontis and illustrations. Closed tear in lower margin of one leaf, otherwise a very good copy. First edition. A superb association copy, inscribed prior to publication by the author to American Orientalist and modernist literary influence, Ernest Fenollosa, utilizing Fenollosa's Japanese honorific: "To Mast. Kano E Fenollosa Our young American in Japan with the author's affectionate regard. Manchester by Sea Mass Oct. 10. 1881" After serving with the British military during the Second Opium War, Greey (1835-1888) traveled to Japan in the diplomatic service and immersed himself in the country's language, culture and art. In 1868, he settled in New York, opening a shop specializing in Japanese art and antiquities, and subsidizing that income as a writer. In addition to formal works such as the present, which afford a valuable insight into aspects of Japanese history and culture from a Westerner's point of view, Greey was a prolific contributor to the pulp press and boy's papers, often under pseudonyms. He took his own life in 1888 under mysterious circumstances. As a somewhat older contemporary of Fenollosa, he would no doubt had ample reason and opportunity to make his acquaintance, either in the U.S. or during travels back to Japan on business.

        The complete suite of Thomson's three contributions to the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, including: "On the Vibrations of a Vortex Ring, and the Action upon Each Other of Two Vortices in a Perfect Fluid"

      PHOTOGRAPHS SENT ON REQUEST. First Editions, comprising: general title-page to the volume for 1882; 1.) On the Vibrations of a Vortex Ring, and the Action upon Each Other of Two Vortices in a Perfect Fluid, 1882, vol 173, pp.493-521; 2.) On the Determination of the Number of Electrostatic Units in the Electromagnetic Unit of Electricity, 1883, vol 174, pp.707-721; 3.) On Some Applications of Dynamical Principles to Physical Phenomena, 1885, vol 176, pp.307-342; quarto, half calf gilt in period style, extracted from The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, neat small uninked embossed library name stamp on general title page, very good copies, London, The Royal Society, 1882 - 1885. The second paper above was Thomson's first paper on the electrostatic unit of electricity. "In 1884 Lord Rayleigh, .resigned the Cavendish Professorship of Experimental Physics. Thomson had by then completed a few imperfect bits of laboratory work, including a determination, at Rayleigh's suggestion, of the ratio of the electrostatic to the electromagnetic units of electricity. Rayleigh had intended to collaborate in this work which, apart from its imperfection, was typical of the Cavendish during this area; but Thomson, unaware of many of the pitfalls, ran away with the project, published hastily, and gave his colleagues, including the Professor, to doubt that he had any future in experimental physics. With these credits and his mathematics, he competed for the chair; much to his surprise, and to the great annoyance of some of his competitors, who included Fitzgerald, Glazenbrook, Larmor, Reynolds, and Schuster, he was elected."(DSB XIII, p. 365). The third paper above was one of a series of works in which Thomson elaborated on his idea that the potential energy of a given system might be replaced by the kinetic energy of imaginary masses connected to it. "This notion, which anticipated the better-known scheme of Heinrich Hertz, could be made analytic by employing a form of Lagrange's equations worked out by Routh. . . . In a series of papers [including this one] . . . Thomson illustrated how to guess at a term in the Lagrangian from a consideration of known phenomena and how, from the term once admitted, to deduce the existence and magnitudes of other effects" (DSB).
