        Die Aetiologie der Tuberculose. (Nach einem in der physiologischen Gesellschaft zu Berlin am 24. März gehaltenen Vortrag) (pp.221-230).

      BKW, 19/15. - Berlin, August Hirschwald, Montag, den 10. April 1882, 4, pp.221-236, feiner Halbpergamenteinband. First Edition, First Appearance in Print of Koch's epochal paper on which he announced March 24 his discovery of the tubercle bacillus, this paper also contains the first statement of "Koch's postulates".... The greatest and best known of all of Robert Koch's labors ... For this work, in the face of the teaching of the day that tuberculosis was the result of nutritional disturbances, Koch took his place as the greatest bacteriologist of his day and one of the greatest physicians of all time. By the discovery of the actual cause of tuberculosis, real scientific progress was possible toward controlling this widespread affliction. For his discovery of the bacillus of tuberculosis Robert Koch received the Nobel Prize in 1905. " Medical Classic II, No.8, pp.719Robert Koch (1843-1910) studierte zuerst in Göttingen Mathematik und Naturwissenschaften, ging aber schon nach zwei Semestern zum medizinischen Studium über, in dem namentlich der Anatom HENLE, der Physiologe MEISSNER und der Kliniker HASSE besonderen Einfluß auf ihn übten. 1865 - noch als Student - Assistent am Pathologischen Museum, wurde er 1866 promoviert und ging dann für ein Halbjahr nach Berlin. In demselben Jahr erhielt er eine Stelle an der Idiotenanstalt Langenhagen bei Hannover, ließ sich aber 1868 als Arzt in den märkischen Städtchen Niemegk, 1869 in Rakwitz (Posen) nieder. Er nahm am Deutsch-Französischen Feldzug teil und bereitete sich, nach Hause zurückgekehrt, für das Physikatsexamen vor. Nach der bestandenen Prüfung wurde er zum Kreisphysikus des Kreises Bomst in Wollstein ernannt, wo er neben Privat- und Amtspraxis unter primitivsten Verhältnissen jene Untersuchungen begann, die ihn zu unsterblichen Ruhm führen sollten. Hier konnte er nicht nur die bereits von POLLENDER, BRAUELL und DAVAINE im Blute Milzbrandkranker entdeckten Stäbchen feststellen, sondern auch ihre Dauerform beobachten und damit die Aetiologie des Milzbrandes in ihren Grundlagen mit Sicherheit feststellen. Nachdem er wenige Monate eine Stelle als Medizinalbeamter bekleidet hatte, aber wieder nach Wollstein zurückgekehrt war, wurde er 1880 als Regierungsrat und ordentliches Mitglied des Kais. Gesundheitsamtes nach Berlin berufen. 1891 übernahm er unter Aufgabe seiner akademischen Tätigkeit die Leitung des für ihn gegründeten Instituts für Infektionskrankheiten.-cf.Fischer, p.784f. 1881 "begann Koch seine grundlegenden Arbeiten über die Tuberkulose, die in der Entdeckung des lang gesuchten Tuberkuloseerregers ihre Krönung fanden. Hierüber berichtete er in der denkwürdigen Sitzung der Berliner physiologischen Gesellschaft am 24.März 1882 (...) Zunächst schilderte Koch den mikroskopischen Nachweis des Tuberkelbazillus als charakteristisches, kleines, unbewegliches Stäbchen, das sich im tuberkulösen Material konstant finden läßt, allerdings nur durch bestimmte Färbeverfahren.(...) Es folgt die Schilderung der Reinkultur, die Erfüllung der zweiten Forderung des Erregernachweises(...). Mit der Klärung der dritten Frage, "ob die isolierten Bazillen, wenn sie dem Thierkörper wieder einverleibt werden, den Krankheitsprozeß der Tuberkulose auch wieder zu erzeugen vermögen", konnte Koch das letzte Glied in der Beweiskette einfügen und zusammenfassend sagen: " Alle diese Versuche zusammengenommen berechtigen zu dem Ausspruch, daß die in den tuberkulösen Substanzen vorkommenden Bazillen nicht nur Begleiter des tuberkulösen Prozesses, sondern auch die Ursache desselben sind, und daß wir in den Bazillen das eigentlich tuberkulöse Virus vor uns haben". Nach dem Vortrag war, wie Loeffler berichtet, "nicht ein einziger im Saal, der nicht, wenn auch wider Willen, von der Richtigkeit dessen, was er gehört und gesehen, überzeugt gewesen wäre und gefühlt hatte, daß er einer epochemachenden, die ganze Medizin erschütternden Verkündigung von ungeheuren Konsequenzen beigewohnt hätte, und diese Konsequenzen wurden von Koch sofort mit scharfer Logik gezogen. Paul Ehrlich bezeichnete später (1910) diesen Vortrag als sein "größtes wissenschaftliches Erlebnis"." (F.Loeffler: Dtsch. med. Wschr. 33 (1907) S.449 + P.Ehrlich: Frankf.

        Ueber einen neuen Formbestandtheil des Blutes und dessen Rolle bei der Thrombose und der Blutgerinnung. Untersuchungen (pp.261-332, 1 lith. Tafel mit 14 Fig.).

      Virch. Arch. path. Anat., 90. - Berlin, Verlag von Georg Reimer, 1882, 8, (2), IV, 560 pp., 10 lith. plates., Halbledereinband. The first German translation with additions of "Su di nuovo elemento morfologico del sangue dei mammiferi e della sua importanza nella trombosi e nella coagulazione".Discovering 'discoid corpuscles'. "In 1881, Giulio Bizzozero (1846-1901) reached the pinnacle of his scientific productivity with the discovery of a "...constant blood particle, differing from red and white blood cells", the existence of which "...has been suspected by several authors for some time". Bizzozero named this third morphological element of the blood piastrine " the Italian for 'small plates' they were called Blutplättchen in German and petites plaques in French (subsequently called plaquettes), and in English they were later named 'platelets'. He described them as discoid corpuscles without a nucleus, consisting of a membrane and a matrix in which there were a few dispersed granules" haemoglobin was never present. Before his investigations, several researchers had observed platelets in the blood, but they regarded these particles either as degenerated and disintegrated leukocytes, or as clots of fibrin or a particular kind of microbe. Between 1877 and 1879, just before Bizzozero made these observations, the renowned French haematologist George Hayem published a series of papers with a fairly clear description of platelets. However, he considered them to be the precursors of red blood cells that is, 'haematoblasts'. In 1880, Ernst Neumann still related platelets to erythrocytes, but instead of considering them as their precursors, he thought they were artefacts derived from faded and altered red blood cells as a result of the incorrect techniques that were used to study blood.Bizzozero was the first person to clearly regard platelets as a third morphological element of the blood, unrelated to erythrocytes and leukocytes. He observed them in vivo under the microscope as colourless and transparent particles, around 2/3 mum in diameter, which circulated in the blood of the mesenteric vessels of anaesthetized rabbits and guinea pigs. Moreover, in many species of mammal, including humans, he observed platelets as isolated corpuscles in the first blood drops taken from a wound, but only after very rapid preparation, as they were unstable elements that soon underwent morphological changes to form granular aggregates " Paolo Mazzarello, Alessandro L. Calligaro & Alberto Calligaro: Timeline: Giulio Bizzozero: a pioneer of cell biology.

"Ueber die und die physiologische Regeneration der Drüsenzellen bei den Säugethieren" (pp.155-214).Garrison & Morton No. 881 (1st. Ital. ed. (1882)

        The Land of the Morning: An Account of Japan and Its People, Based on a Four years' Residence in That Country. Including Travels into the Remotest Parts of the Interior.

      Edinburgh, James Gemmell, 1882.. Royal octavo. Pp. xx, 689, (2) publisher's catalogue. Plus double-page map and 2 plates. With 19 woodcut illustrations throughout the text; woodcut tail-piece. Hardcover, bound in the original publisher's full pictorial cloth by Hunter of Edinburgh, both sides as well as spine are illustrated and richly highlighted in gilt, original floral endpapers; spine-ends very slightly bumped with minor wear to corner-tips. In about fine condition. A lovely copy preserved entirely in the original state. ~ First edition. The Rev. Dixon resided in Japan for four years, occupying during that time the Professor of the English Language and Literature's chair in the Imperial College of Engineering, Tokyo. He returned to Scotland in 1880 in order to study for the ministry, and wrote his impressions of Japan in "The Land of the Morning" in which he gives an interesting account of Japan and the Japanese. On March 4, 1882, shortly after the publication of the book, the reviewer of "The Spectator" wrote: "The judgments that the author passes on men and things, on national habits and customs, have all the appearance of reasonableness and impartiality. They lean to the favourable side, nor is this strange, considering the kindness and courtesy which the author almost uniformly met with, even in his remotest journeys. But there is nothing of blind partiality."

        A Monograph of the Jacamars and the Puff-Birds, or Families Galbulidae and Bucconidae

      printed by Taylor & Francis, published for the Author by R.H. Porter, London 1882 - (12 3/8 x 9 7/8 inches). 1p. list of subscribers, letterpress title with wood-engraved vignette. 55 hand-coloured lithographic plates by John Gerrard Keulemans, printed by Hanhart. With the original parts front wrappers bound in the rear. Early red half morocco and red pebble-grained cloth-covered boards, spine in six compartments with raised bands, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartments First edition of this beautifully-illustrated monograph, limited to 250 copies, with plates by Keulemans: "the major bird book illustrator" of his time (Jackson). John Gerrard Keulemans (1842-1912) is described by Christine Jackson as "the major bird book illustrator for 30 years at the end of the 19th century" ( Dictionary of Bird Artists of the World , 1999, p.314), and an artist who "worked to a consistently high standard." This is certainly true of the excellent illustrations in the present work. Every species is carefully depicted against a naturalistic background, with the plummage precisely indicated and beautifully coloured. Sclater notes in the preface that "The Jacamars and Puff-birds formed the subject of some of my earliest studies in Ornithology. Of the former of these families I published a Synopsis in 1852, of the latter in 1856. Since those dates I have not failed to add to my series of examples of both groups whenever the opportunity has presented itself. Assisted by the additional materials thus acquired, and by the excellent collection of the birds. in the cabinets of my friends Salvin and Godman . it has been a great pleasure to me to go over former ground and . to give a complete account of what is as yet known of the Jacamars and Puff-birds." The work was issued in seven parts by Sclater, each part priced at one guinea. The size of the work was intended to be uniform with Dresser's Birds of Europe, Sharpe's Kingfishers, Marshall's Barbets , and Shelley's Sun-birds. The Jacamars and Puffbirds are insect-eating birds, natives of the Caribbean, central and south America, and are apparently related to the trogons and woodpeckers. They inhabit the dense tropical forest, and can usually be seen sitting motionless on trees from which they fly out to catch insects on the wing, then return to crack them on a branch before eating them.

        Leçons cliniques sur l'épilepsie

      Paris, Bureau du progrès médical, Delahaye et Lecrosnier, 1882, in-8, [2] ff, 87 pp, 1 pl. hors texte et 16 pp. de catalogue d'éditeur, broché, couverture imprimée de l'éditeur, ÉDITION ORIGINALE de cet ensemble de leçons données par Valentin Magnan à l'asile Sainte-Anne qui furent recueillies et publiées par Marcel Briand, médecin inspecteur adjoint des asiles d'aliénés de la Seine. Cet ouvrage comprend 6 leçons ayant pour objet d'étude l'épilepsie, ses formes diverses et ses traitements. En effet, Magnan définissait l'épilepsie comme "une névrose à paroxysmes, caractérisée par des accès intermittents, avec perte de connaissance, accès qui peuvent se montrer sous forme d'attaques convulsives, de vertiges, d'absences ou de délire spécial (épilepsie larvée)." Ce trouble neurologique héréditaire peut trouver sa source dans plusieurs causes : l'alcoolisme, la folie du père ou de la mère, le mariage consanguin des parents et, dans quelques cas rares, des émotions morales comme la frayeur. Magnan interrogeait également la responsabilité des épileptique à travers ces leçons. Ces réflexions sont par ailleurs illustrée d'une planche hors texte présentant un comparatif de deux diagrammes d'attaques épileptiques, l'une d'un chien, l'autre d'un enfant de 16 ans. Valentin Magnan (1835-1916), disciple de Jean Pierre Falret, fut aliéniste et professeur à Sainte-Anne durant toute sa carrière. Il s'intéressait de près à la question de la folie héréditaire. En outre, en 1886, s'ouvrait à la Société médico-psychologique, une discussion sur les signes physiques, intellectuels et moraux de la folie héréditaire, à laquelle Magnan prenait une part active. (SEMELAIGNE, II, p.210 et suiv.) Bon exemplaire malgré quelques taches sur les plats. Cachet ex-libris du docteur Carrier sur la page de titre.

      1882 - depuis les Temps les plus anciens jusqu'a la Battalille d'Ancyre, en 1402. [With] TEXIER (Charles). Asie Mineure Description Géographique, Historique et Archéologique des Provinces et des Villes de la Chersonnése d'Asie. 2 vols. 6 folding maps & 64 plates. 8vo. Contemporary quarter cloth, French marbled boards spines gilt. [iv], 530; [iv], 758pp. Paris, Firmin-Didot, 1878 & A very attractive set of volumes bringing together the work of two of the most important writers on Asia Minor. In order to make a more balanced pair the first 32 plates of Texier are bound in at the end of the Le Bas volume. Trained as an archaeologist, Texier superintended excavations at Ostia before departing for the Levant. He made three journeys to the region between 1834 and 1836, returning to France in 1837 to start work on Description of Asia Minor. This book, ?probably the greatest work of exploration made by a single traveller? (Blackmer), was not so much an account of his journey but rather the summation of the information he had collected en route. Le Bas meanwhile started his archaeological travels some ten years later, travelling throughout Greece and Asia Minor from January 1843 to December 1844, and collecting more than 4000 inscriptions along the way.

        Carte autographe signée à la Comtesse de Potocka. Désirs laconiques : "si vous saviez ce que je demande au ciel"

      Precious autograph card signed on a bristol to the author's number and to the heading of his home of 83 rue Dulong, addressed to the famous Countess Potocka, of which he was one of the most fervent "Macahabés" or "dead of love" .Maupassant had a real passion for this muse, which inspired him several characters, including Christiane Andermatt in Mont-Oriol , and the Baronne de Frémines in Notre Coeur.These little gray cards with the initials of Maupassant served to the almost instantaneous messenger writer generally destroyed after reading.Sometimes, however, at the turn of a rendezvous, a chaste prayer slides towards the licentious declaration and the dedicatee keeps this improvised sweet note."It is understood, madam, but at what hour, eleven or twelve o'clock?"I pray for you morning and evening.If you knew what I ask of heaven?Allow me, madam, to kiss your hands.Maupassant. "Françoise Mobihan admirably describes the apartment at 83 rue Dulong where Maupassant lived from 1881 to 1884 and in which he knew his first worldly successes:"Three rooms kitchen, rent of 450. Tired of the hustle and bustle of the rue Clauzel and the Bréda district, Maupassant quietly starts, with the Batignolles, its gradual migration towards the west of Paris and its bourgeois districts. New, but well-known land: Gustave, his father, moved two hundred years earlier, at 72, bd des Batignolles, in front of Chaptal College, on the fourth floor of 83 rue Dulong, in a small Stone, its three rooms calm and luminous, on street and courtyard, allows Guy to write at a steady rate his chronicles and news - La Maison Tellier, Mademoiselle Fifi ... - a first novel - A life - and organize For his friends, confreres and conquests, married or not, often animated evenings, such as the one that earned him a shot in hand and was cared for by his concierge. 'to ten- Seven invitations a day - Guy first hired a cook, then, in November 1883, a valet, François Tassart, 27, who will accompany him in all his travels and will be devoted to him until the tragic days of the house Of Dr. Blanche. Invaded by piles of books and "cluttered with trinkets like a boudoir of little mistress" 5 - according to friend Maizeroy - this apartment will be a permanent challenge to his know-how. 5 Gil Blas, 3 July 1882. Quoted by Marlo Johnston, Guy de Maupassant, Fayard, 2012, p. 414. 3 At the bottom of the building, at the Cardinet crossroads, pass the trains that run from the Saint-Lazare station to the banks of the Seine and Normandy. From his window, Guy no doubt looks at them. Exactly as Georges Duroy did in Bel Ami (1885), from the top of his little room in the rue Boursault, on the other side of the railway.[Paris] (circa 1882) 11,5x9cm un carton et son enveloppe

        Specimen Days & Collect

      David McKay, Philadelphia 1882 - First edition, second issue with the McKay imprint. Some moderate erosion to the cloth on the spine, paper over the front hinge starting, else a very good copy. Very nicely Inscribed by Whitman to a fellow author: "To Churchill Williams from his friend the Author with love. December 27, 1883." Francis (or Frank) Churchill Williams was the son of a successful playwright, and an 1891 graduate of the University of Pennsylvania (where he was class president in his senior year). Aside from publishing two novels (including an interesting book about Philadelphia politics, *J. Devlin, Boss*), he was an active member of the Philadelphia publishing world as a journalist, editor, and publisher. He apparently was well-known to most of the literary figures of the time, and is recorded as a guest at Mark Twain's 70th birthday party. Something of a literary prodigy at Germantown Academy where he attended high school, Whitman's inscription was written to Williams when the latter was 14 years old, a freshman at Germantown, and already winning literary prizes. Presumably Whitman, ensconced across the river in Camden, was warmly acquainted with young Williams, as the affectionate inscription would seem to indicate. Whitman was an active and agreeable signer, but for whatever reason, *Specimen Days* isn't often found signed by its author, especially with this degree of affection. See this book in 3D on our site.

        A Monograph of the Jacamars and the Puff-Birds, or Families Galbulidae and Bucconidae

      London: printed by Taylor & Francis, published for the Author by R.H. Porter, 1882. 7 parts in one volume, royal quarto. (12 3/8 x 9 7/8 inches). 1p. list of subscribers, letterpress title with wood-engraved vignette. 55 hand-coloured lithographic plates by John Gerrard Keulemans, printed by Hanhart. With the original parts front wrappers bound in the rear. Early red half morocco and red pebble-grained cloth-covered boards, spine in six compartments with raised bands, ruled in gilt on either side of each band, lettered in gilt in the second and fourth compartmentsFirst edition of this beautifully-illustrated monograph, limited to 250 copies, with plates by Keulemans: "the major bird book illustrator" of his time (Jackson).John Gerrard Keulemans (1842-1912) is described by Christine Jackson as "the major bird book illustrator for 30 years at the end of the 19th century" ( Dictionary of Bird Artists of the World , 1999, p.314), and an artist who "worked to a consistently high standard." This is certainly true of the excellent illustrations in the present work. Every species is carefully depicted against a naturalistic background, with the plummage precisely indicated and beautifully coloured.Sclater notes in the preface that "The Jacamars and Puff-birds formed the subject of some of my earliest studies in Ornithology. Of the former of these families I published a Synopsis in 1852, of the latter in 1856. Since those dates I have not failed to add to my series of examples of both groups whenever the opportunity has presented itself. Assisted by the additional materials thus acquired, and by the excellent collection of the birds... in the cabinets of my friends Salvin and Godman ... it has been a great pleasure to me to go over former ground and ... to give a complete account of what is as yet known of the Jacamars and Puff-birds."The work was issued in seven parts by Sclater, each part priced at one guinea. The size of the work was intended to be uniform with Dresser's Birds of Europe, Sharpe's Kingfishers, Marshall's Barbets , and Shelley's Sun-birds.The Jacamars and Puffbirds are insect-eating birds, natives of the Caribbean, central and south America, and are apparently related to the trogons and woodpeckers. They inhabit the dense tropical forest, and can usually be seen sitting motionless on trees from which they fly out to catch insects on the wing, then return to crack them on a branch before eating them.Anker 451; Fine Bird Books (1990), p.106; Nissen IVB 840; Wood, p.558; Zimmer, p.561.

        Parsifal: Scenische Bilder nach den Fur die Bayreuther Auffuhrung

      Leipzig: Verlag von Edwin Schloemp, n.d. (1882-1883). Very good antiquarian condition. Joukovsky, Paul von. Oblong Folio (30 x 40 cm). COMPLETE SUITE: 1 f. (letterpress title-page / verso blank). 1 f. ("Vorwort zur ersten und zweiten Auflage" / on verso: "Inhalt"), and 9 heliogravure plates ("neun Lichtdrucke") of scenes and costume designs from Wagner's great opera, printed by Naumann & Schroeder, Leipzig, and mounted on thick card (slight foxing throughout as is true in all copies examined by us); one card with old repair in margin (not affecting image), others with corners bumped. Preserved in the original publisher's brown cloth portfolio manufactured by Wilh. Schaffel, "Dampfbuchbinder, Leipzig" with their ticket inside front cover (extremities worn), the three folding flaps inside portfolio with defects and repairs. With faults, priced accordingly. The scarce folio edition, the only one authorized by Wagner himself, which on account of its large size is preferred to the small octavo edition. This is the single most important record of the first performances of Wagner's "Parsifal." The complete suites of original scenic designs and costume designs by Paul von Joukowsky; the portfolio was issued almost immediately after the famous opening occurred in July, 1882; the designs illustrate precisely how Wagner and his designer envisioned the entire opera, and how their designs were realized onstage for the first and subsequent performances. The plates were executed in heliography after original drawings by set designer Paul von Joukowsky (a.k.a. Joukovsky), who designed all of the costumes and four of the five sets for "Parsifal." Construction of the actual sets was accomplished by the brothers Max and Gotthold Bruckner, of the Coburg Court Theater, after Joukowsky's designs. Joukowsky (1845-1912), a Russian / German aristocrat and "aesthete," is considered to have been among Richard and Cosima Wagner's closest friends. Joukowsky was introduced to the Wagners at the Villa d'Angri in 1880 and accompanied them on their visits to Ravello and Siena; it is a little-known fact that the opera's Klingsor garden was modeled after the lush garden at the Hotel Caruso, in Ravello, where they all vacationed together. Joukowski openly acknowledged himself as a homosexual, and was a special friend of Henry James. "Parsifal" remains Joukowsky's best-known work, and it continues to inspire modern scenic-designers, scholars, and admirers of Wagner's music everywhere. "A key to the [scenic] design and to the significance of Parsifal is transformation. The outer acts move from the open air to the innards of a duomo; the middle act from a sorcerer's turret to a garden of excess, then to blank ruination. Wagner allows his transformations to carry his most oblique and notorious utterance in the drama: as Parsifal and Gurnemanz progress in Act I from the clearing to the Hall of the Grail, the gentle guardian tells the bright upstart, "You see, my son, here time becomes space." It was twenty years before Einstein figured that one out" (SOURCE: BBC Music Magazine, September 2003). LITERATURE: William Apthorp, "Wagner and Scenic Art" (1887) with 4 reproductions of the Joukowsky's designs.

Original blue cloth, lettered in gilt and ornamented in blind; pp. xiv, [2, addenda], [xv]-xxxviii, 1304, 6, [2], numerous folding maps and charts; wear to binding, internally, apart from a few scattered light spots, very good and clean. A very rare pilot guide, compiled by the successor to Horsburgh and the leading hydrographer of the second half of the 19th century. Alexander George Findlay, the younger, the son of an engraver and cartographic and hydrographic publisher, took over the publishing house of Richard Holmes Laurie in 1858, but did not change the name. 'Between 1869 and 1875 Findlay prepared and published six navigational directories which in text, maps, and diagrams documented the winds, currents, coastlines, and other information necessary for navigation in the major oceans of the world. The directories ran to several editions and were regarded as the standard authorities' (ODNB). - This pilot guide for the Indian Ocean had been published first in 1866, and this is the fourth corrected and updated edition. The section of the Persian Gulf takes up page 822 to 861 and deals, apart from the navigation, with the products and trade of the region, as well as containing descriptions of the major ports and towns along the coast. The chapter headed Passages in the Arabian Seas (pp. 168-180) is on the sailing conditions in the Gulf. [Attributes: Hard Cover]
