        Du délire des négations

      Paris, V.-A. Delahaye et Lecrosnier, aux bureaux du progrès médical, 1882. 1882, 1882, in-8, 35 pages, maroquin noir moderne, dos lisse, titre doré en long, gardes de papier noir [Louise B.], Première édition du tiré à part de cet article paru dans les Archives de neurologie (n° 11 et 12, 1882). Jules Cotard (1840-1889), élève de Charcot et de Vulpain à la Salpêtrière, présentait en 1880 à la Société médico-psychologique ses observations sur une malade internée à la maison de Santé de Vanves, au cours d'une dissertation intilutée "Du délire hypochondriaque dans une forme grave de la mélancolie anxieuse". Deux ans plus tard, il approfondit son sujet dans "Du délire des négations" qui comporte, in fine, un tableau synoptique faisant un parallèle avec le délire de persécution. C'est le point de départ du "syndrome de Cotard", le seul auquel il a donné son nom, qui se caractérise par un état de mélancolie dépressive et d'hypocondrie conduisant à la négation, de la part du patient, de ses propres organes. Semelaigne II, p. 238. Bel exemplaire, enrichi d'un envoi de l'auteur à son ami de la faculté de Médecine de Paris, Adrien Proust, père de l'écrivain

        Chancellorsville and Gettysburg.

      New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1882. First edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Wm. E. Doubleday with the affectionate regards of the author." The recipient William E. Doubleday was first cousins to Abner Doubleday. In very good condition with light rubbing and wear to the extremities. Books signed by Doubleday are rare. General Abner Doubleday is best known as the man who invented baseball, but his admirable service on behalf of the Union earned him a reputation as a solid commander and patriot. He saw action at Fort Sumter where he aimed the first gun fired against the rebellion; at Antietam, Fredericksburg, and Chancellorsville, where he lead the First and later the Third Divisions of the First Corps of the Army of the Potomac; and finally at Gettysburg, where he commanded the entire First Corps after the death of General Reynolds early in the morning of the first day. Facing powerful assaults from Confederates, the outnumbered First Corps fought, under Doubleday's calm leadership, a valiant holding action that culminated in high casualties, but gave General Meade the crucial time he needed to reinforce the battlefield. Chancellorsville and Gettysburg, originally commissioned as part of the landmark Campaigns of the Civil War series, provides stern judgements of Generals Meade and Howard; astute insights into other generals such as Hooker, Reynolds, and Sickle; and penetrating, minute-by-minute analyses by a leading participant of these two pivotal battles. Although the fierce resistance by the First Corps during the bloody late afternoon of July 1 never received its due praise, Doubleday's account of Chancellorsville and Gettysburg stands as a passionate, uncompromising tribute.

        Prince and the Pauper

      1882. First Edition . TWAIN, Mark. The Prince and the Pauper, A Tale for Young People of All Ages. Boston: James R. Osgood, 1882. Octavo, original three-quarter brown morocco, elaborately gilt-decorated spine, raised bands, marbled boards, endpapers, and edges. $3200.First American edition, first issue, second state, of “the best book for young folks that was ever written,” (Harriet Beecher Stowe), in original three-quarter morocco binding.Thought by his family and many of his friends to be his best work, The Prince and the Pauper represented a risky departure for Twain in his attempt to write a serious and thoughtful adventure story for children. He considered publishing the book anonymously, as he feared that his reputation as a humorist would hurt its chances with the public, but finally decided to put his name to it, “and let it help me or hurt me as the fates shall direct.” “The Prince and the Pauper was to be an act of culture. He had no hesitation, as he had had with Tom Sawyer, over whether this was a book for children or for grownups. From the very start he knew that he was writing for children” (Kaplan, 238, 248). According to Twain, Harriet Beecher Stowe once told him, “I am reading your Prince and the Pauper for the fourth timeÂ… And I know it is the best book for young folks that was ever written” (Kaplan, 240). First issue, second state, with Franklin Press imprint on copyright page and “estate” changed to “state” on page 124, line 1. BAL 3402. Johnson, 40. MacDonnell, 44-45. McBride, 70.

      Sydney: Thomas Richards, 1882. Large octavo, frontispiece and 45 plates, illustrated, a little browned; very good copy in half black morocco over marbled boards, spine gilt, very gently rubbed. A very good copy of this seminal work on the fishes of New South Wales.Tenison-Woods (1832-1889), was a Catholic priest, educationist and scientist. He sailed for Van Diemen's Land in 1854, but after a disagreement with a Bishop, soon relocated to Adelaide, where he would help Mother Mary MacKillop found the Sisters of St Joseph of the Sacred Heart at Penola in 1866. The next year, he accepted the positions of director-general of Catholic schools and secretary and chaplain to Bishop Sheil.At the same time, he was an accurate observer of the physical world and made original contributions to Australian geology, palaeontology and zoology. He travelled widely and published over 150 papers in the journals and transactions of Australian learned societies and overseas periodicals. In this work he made a comprehensive survey of the fishes of the Colony, and it was designed to make available a popular account of the findings of the 1880 Royal Commission on the Fisheries of New South Wales. William III of the Netherlands gave Tenison-Woods a gold medal for the book.

        A grammar and vocabulary of the Blackfoot language, being a concise and comprehensive grammar for the use of the learner, to which is added an exhaustive vocabulary containing upwards of five thousand words, phrases and sentences, upon five hundred different subjects of everyday occurrences... Compiled by C.M. Lanning from original translations by Joseph Kipp and W.S. Gladston, Jr.

      Fort Benton, [Montana Territory]: published by the author, 1882. First and only edition of the first Blackfoot grammar and the first comprehensive Blackfoot vocabulary, square 16mo, pp. 143, [1]; separately inserted errata printed on purple paper, lacking the leaf of ads at the back; original cloth-backed printed paper-covered boards rubbed and stained, worn at spine ends, shaken, hinges cracked, else internally very good in a cloth chemise and quarter morocco slipcase. A fine association copy bearing the ownership signature of Montana pioneer, prospector, and rancher Granville Stuart. Stuart was an early propagandist for the Montana Territory, prospected extensively for gold there, and was one of the largest ranchers in the territory, becoming a leader of the vigilantes who battled cattle rustlers in the 1880s. Stuart has signed his name on the front fly leaf, adding "Fort Maginnis Mont. 1883." The Blackfoot tribe (the westernmost of the Algonquin stock), ranged around the headwaters of the Missouri, from the Yellowstone northward to north Saskatchewan and westward to the Rockies. Although there were a number of short vocabularies of the Blackfoot preceding this -- notably Catlin (75 words) in Letters and Notes … on the North American Indians, 1841; and Moncrovie (350 words) in Schoolcraft's Indian Tribes, 1852 -- this is the first book devoted to the Blackfoot language, and its first grammar. The book is scarce, and rare on the market. Not in Field; not in Howes; Pilling, Proof-sheets 2198; Pilling, Algonquin, p. 296; Eberstadt 115:732; Smith 5692.

Very Good copy. "Hirn became one of the first to investigate the internal phenomena of the steam engine. He had five engines at his disposal, including two of about 100 horsepower—a Woolf compound and a single-cylinder machine. In 1847 he discovered the mechanical equivalent of heat (later than, but independently of J. R. Mayer and Joule, whose priorities of 1842 and 1843 he acknowledged)." "In continuing work directed at increasing the efficiency of the mill engine, Hirn established the first heat balance (1857). He showed the beneficial advantage of superheat over dry saturated steam in reducing cylinder condensation; the calculation is still known as Hirn’s analysis. Furthermore, he convinced skeptics of the advantage of steam-jacketing cylinders, a practice that had been discontinued when pressures, temperatures, and speeds had risen significantly above those of Watt’s era: he proved decisively that cylinder walls were active “thermal reservoirs.” Hirn’s Exposition analytique et expérimentale de la théorie meécanique de la chaleur (1862) was among the first systematic treatises on thermodynamics." "Hirn’s activity was not limited to thermodynamics; the climatology and meteorology of Alsace were an intertest of his later years. Before the Franco-Prussian War he had established a number of weather stations that reported to him. After his retirement in 1880, he was able to resume this work through support from the Institut de France, instrumentation for the major obsrvatory atop his house being furnished by the Ministry of Public Works in Paris. Astronomy also engaged him, a paper on Saturn’s rings causing much discussion."--"Complete Dictionary of Scientific Biography", Vol. 6. Detroit: Charles Scribner's Sons, 2008. p431-432.

      London: Judd and Co. 1882. Large thick quarto, ii, 980 pp., fine in handsome half brown morocco with gilt lettering by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. Early London printed facsimile of the first three volumes of Pasquin (January 1867 to November 1869).Eustace Mitford 'came to South Australia in 1839, and remained here until he died thirty years afterwards. As a journalist he has been rarely equalled for fearlessness. His style of writing was reckless, fanciful, full of the strangest paradoxes and surprises... Pasquin was established as a favourite with a large portion of the South Australian people, and the object of unmeasured hatred and denunciation to other portions' (from the preface).

        Winning His Spurs: A Tale of the Crusades

      London: Sampson Low, Marston, Searle, & Rivington, 1882. First edition. Hardcover. Very Good. A Very Good copy of the EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE first edition, first printing, in the Publisher's original red boards with the spine and front board lettered and decorated in gilt and black, with all three edges of the closed page block gilded, and with the small binder's ticket to the rear pastedown's lower left corner. The volume is complete with the 32 page catalogue to the rear. This is the EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE first edition of one of Henty's earliest books for boys. Shortly prior to its publication in book form, the tale had been serialized in 26 installments in the Union Jack, and, as this book publication came directly from that serialization, the illustrations are within the text rather than on separate plates. The catalogue to the rear is dated September, 1883 -- while the earliest catalogue published in this title is dated December, 1881. The volume is mildly askew, the front cover is unusually bright, the spine and the rear board's forecorner show minor fading, and there is only modest exterior wear. Within, the original patterned endpapers are cracked and the leaves show scattered foxing -- mainly to the earliest and latest pages. As Newbolt points out, "no publisher's records survive", so the number of copies of the first edition published is unknown -- nevertheless, the number of first edition copies surviving to the present time is decidedly low. A Very Good copy of the EXCEEDINGLY SCARCE FIRST EDITION OF ONE OF G. A. HENTY'S EARLIEST BOOKS FOR BOYS, a genre by which he made much of his living.

        The Chess Monthly

      London: Jas Wade, 1882-1883. iv+380 pages with illustrations, diagrams, tables, and index. Royal octavo (9 3/4" x 6 1/4") bound in half brown leather with gilt lettering to spine and blue marbled boards. From the library of Dino Ruggieri. Volume IV (4). (Betts: 7-25). First edition.The Chess Monthly of Great Britain was one of the first to give properly annotated games. The principal editor, Leopold Hoffer, was helped enormously by having J H Zukertort as co-editor until his death in 1888. There were four regular sections: news, annotated games, problems and endgames. In addition, Hoffer carried on a profoundly bitter feud with his one-time benefactor, Steinitz. This publication should not be confused with The Chess Monthly published in the United States which was short lived from 1857-1862 and edited by Fiske and Morphy.Dino Ruggieri was born in, Pigüé a small city in the Buenos Aires province, October 22, 1921. His parents were both Italians, natives of Porto D'Ascoli. In their early years in Argentina, the Ruggieri’s family lived in the country, located about 45 miles from Pigüé. The family was engaged in agriculture. When Ruggieri was 8, his father purchased a home in Pigüé, where he lived until 2008. In 1938 he was involved in an accident and he was transferred to Buenos Aires for recovery. This was the beginning of his hobby of chess, both as a player over the board and by correspondence, but as well as a major collector of chess materials. After his recovery he became a prominent local chess player and very good representative in postal chess, where he represented Argentina in matches against Italy, Yugoslavia, Holland and other countries. He was using the correspondence with his rivals to offer exchanges. Ruggieri was related to Mr Niemeijer and soon began exchanging materials and making important purchases. He also had frequent contacts with Gregorio Lastra, Normando Ivaldi, Gaspar Soria and Carlos De Veyga, all known collectors of chess. He died in 2009 at the age of 88.Condition:Corners bumped, Ruggieri's stamp to front end paper, foxing else a very good copy of a scarce item.

        Remarkable and newly discovered original manuscript draft pages of Charles Guiteau's 1882 book justifying his shooting of President Garfield, written from jail

      Washington, DC, 1882. 6.25" x 7.75". "Original manuscript draft page, 6.25” x 7.75”. Marginal tears and losses, light toning and soiling, glue remnants. Manuscript reads: [Brooklyn?] newspaper recently published a column + and a half of interview a lengthy interview with my brother John Watson W. Guiteau of Boston and I herewith extract from it. The interview is headed “Guiteau,” + is about me.” Guiteau has pasted a cutout of the newspaper article to which he refers onto this page.Also included is a lengthy, yet incomplete letter from one of Guiteau's admirers, Clara Augusta Davis, of West Hoboken, New Jersey, dated January 11, 1882. While Davis does not excuse Guiteau's murder of the President, throughout her letters she expresses her sincere belief that he truly believed that he was doing God's work and was insane.Davis even speaks of a personal visit to Guiteau in confinement, writing: ""I had hoped to see you … but Pa, who, dear soul, is the most indulgent of parents, felt constrained to refuse my petition to visit you at the jail.” Guiteau has crossed out “West Hoboken” and has written in “New York”, adding “No 2.” at the top of the page. Following James A. Garfield's death on September 19, 1881, Charles Guiteau, who had already been imprisoned and charged with attempted murder, was now charged with murder and went on trial on November 14, 1881. The trial concluded on January 30, 1882 and on February 4, the court sentenced him to hang on June 30. While awaiting his execution, Guiteau composed a sequel to his 1879 religious tract, The Truth, a Companion to the Bible, entitled, The Removal (the term he employed to describe his assassination of President Garfield). The condemned prisoner employed Gibson Brothers of Washington to print the book as The Truth and The Removal.Extremely Rare. These are among the only known pages of Guiteau's manuscript for The Removal known to be extant in private hands. Auction records reveal no other draft pages of the present, most important manuscript. Only Malcolm Forbes had a similar Guiteau item, sold at auction in 2002 (Christies, March 27, 2002, Lot 122, $9,988).From the family of printer William Gibson, whose firm printed the book in 1882. "
