        Leaves of Grass.

      Philadelphia: Rees, Welsh & Co., 1882 - Octavo. Original ochre cloth, titles gilt to spine and front, light blue endpapers. Robert B. Sweet illustrated bookplate. Ink ownership inscription. Clipping showing the Jo Davidson statue of Whitman in Bear Mountain Park laid down to front free endpaper. Spine a little darkened, light rubbing to ends and corners, otherwise a smart copy, entirely sound, internally clean, and generally in excellent condition. Portrait plate inserted facing Song of Myself. First edition thus, the seventh overall, quite scarce, and a very nice copy. This is the first Philadelphia edition to be printed following the book's censorship in the previous year, Osgood's edition having been labelled by the Massachusetts Attorney General as "Obscene and Ordered To Be Removed From Sale". Osgood refused to publish further, expressing concern to Whitman that "We are . naturally reluctant to be identified with any legal proceedings in a matter of this nature". Rees, Welsh & Co boldly took up the text, under the direction of a young David McKay, printing from plates of the Boston edition of 1881, though with some alterations. They produced four printings thus (all indistinguishable from one another) before the plates were issued under McKay's own imprint. This copy has the inserted portrait plate of Whitman following page 28, facing the beginning of Song of Myself. Myerson A2.7.d-g

        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.

        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.

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.
