        Traité de l'art des accouchements.

      Paris, Lauwereyns, puis Steinheil, 1882-1886-1898-1901. ____ Première édition. Dans sa préface (Décembre 1881) Stéphane Tarnier s'explique sur le but de son ouvrage. "Après avoir écrit le texte des 3e et 4e sections de l' "Atlas" de Lenoir, revu et annoté les quatre dernières éditions de Cazeaux, j'avais acquis la conviction que ces livres malgré leur succès permanent de librairie, devenaient insuffisants au point de vue scientifique, et qu'il y aurait un grand intérêt à faire paraître un traité d'obstétrique, dont le cadre serait assez large pour qu'il put contenir le résumé des nombreux progrès accomplis depuis quelques années dans l'art des accouchements." Illustré par plus de 750 figures dans le texte. Contient : Tome 1. Grossesse et accouchement physiologiques. T. 2. Pathologie de la grossesse. T. 3 Dystocie maternelle. T. 4 Dystocie foetale. Accidents de la délivrance. Opérations. Infections puerpérales. Le tome 1 est rédigé par S. Tarnier et G. Chantreuil et les tomes 2-4 par Tarnier et Pierre Budin qui a achevé l'ouvrage, Tarnier étant mort en 1897. Une auréole en coin sur le 2e volume, papier un peu bruni, petit accroc à une coiffe. Bon exemplaire de ce livre étonnamment rare et qui semble avoir été un échec commercial; il en existe très peu d'exemplaires complets dans les bibliothèques publiques. *****. 4 volumes grand in-8. Collation : XII, 956 / (4), 586 / VI, 771 / XIX, 754 pp. Demi-chagrin noir, filets dorés, dos à nerfs. (Reliure de l'époque.).

Carolina & Northern Florida; Arkansas, Louisiana & Mississippi (interestingly there is a single page printed color map of Florida on the verso of this double page map); Indian Territory and Northern Part of Texas; Southern Part of Texs (sic) with inset of Western Part of Texas; Kentucky & Tennessee; Michigan & Wisconsin; Missouri; Kansas; Nebraska; Colorado; Minnesota; Dakota and Manitoba; Wyoming; Montana and Northern Idaho; Utah; Southern Part of Idaho; Oregon and Washington Territory; New Mexico; Northern California and Nevada; Alaska; Southern California and Arizona.

Annan, having acquired the British Patent holder rights, were to become the leading firm in Britain in gravure photographic printing. In 1893 he exhibited his own photogravure work at the Photographic Salon in 1893, as a result of which he was, in 1894, elected a member of The Linked Ring, a select international group of art photographers. He was to influence the development of photography in North America through having his work exhibited at Alfred Stieglitz's Photo-Secession Galleries in New York, and being featured in the American photographic periodical Camera Notes.

"Beyond the Hundredth Meridian" was unlike any of Stegner's previous works, requiring research spanning 5 years. Stegner often consulted with his mentor Bernard DeVoto during the writing. At one point Stegner writes to DeVoto, "I really am scared to death to let anybody see this, for some reason. Maybe I know the thing stinks." The writing of Hundredth Meridian would solidify Stegner's growing environmentalism and the book remains a classic of the history of the west. Book was acquired directly from the Stegner family. ; Book; 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall; 264 pp [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]

        Tertiary history of the Grand Cañon district, [&c.]. [U.S. Geological Survey Monograph II]. [Text volume, First edition].

      the Government Printing Office, Washington, D.C. 1882 - Washington, quarto, xiv, 264 p., 42 plates and text illustrations. This is the text volume to this important work, the folio atlas was issued separately. *** CONTENT: This is Dutton’s classic geological description of the Grand Canyon. As Sinkankas (1988, Peri Lithon Cat. 85) notes, this is one of the most sought after of all the publications of the U.S. Geological Survey, not only because it was the first volume published (Monograph I was issued in 1890), but because it contains two splendid colored lithographs drawn by W.H. Holmes, the expedition artist, as well as many other views done by him and by Thomas Moran, who later became famous as a western landscapist. The plates also include dramatic photographs as well as a folding chromolithographed geologic map. ***CONDITION: Overall, a VG copy, but internally Fine. The volume is bound in the original tan leather covers, backstrip perished. The covers are sound, though detached and surficially worn, but the text block sewing and the binding is quite firm. The text pages are pristine: fresh, clean and bright, as are the plates, with intact tissue guards. There are no indications of previous ownership. This is a solid copy of the scarcest USGS monograph; rebound or rebacked, it would be a most handsome tome. BMNH 498. Nickles 326. International shipping will be extra, but only at my cost.

        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 7.5". "Original manuscript draft pages 1 “Title page” through 5 of his 1882 book, The Truth and The Removal, written while awaiting his execution for the murder of President James A. Garfield. Also included is a lengthy 4 page letter from an admirer, Clara Augusta Davis. Some marginal tears and losses, some text faded, light toning and soiling, some scattered glue remnants, else good condition. On one pair of bifolia, Guiteau sets up the basic layout for the title and copyright pages: ""The Truth, / and The Removal / By Charles Guiteau / Published and sold only by the author / Washington DC / 1882,"" and advising the printer (vertically in the left margin) to ""Make a sheet of each page & cut out any leaves that interpose C G."" On the opposite side, he added: ""Copyright 1882 By Charles Guiteau"" followed by pages 3 (reading simply ""Part I"") and page 5 (all three pages are glued together in the upper left corners) where he writes ""The Truth / A Companion to the Bible,"" adding a note ""To the printer,"" to ""(Copy preface on the next page and then the entire book, The Truth),"" referring to his 1879 volume.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 Guiteau 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."

        Upon the electrical experiments to determine the location of the bullet in the body of the late President Garfield

      Washington DC: Gibson Bros., 1882. Bell, Alexander Graham (1847-1922). Upon the electrical experiments to determine the location of the bullet in the body of the late President Garfield; an upon a successful form of induction balance for the painless detection of metallic masses in the human body. 58pp. Text illustrations. Washington DC: Gibson Brothers, 1882. 228 x 150 mm. Original printed wrappers, spine perished, evidence of previous binding in a book (oversewing, glue and mesh at spine). Very good copy. Embossed stamp of the Connecticut State Library on front wrapper and first leaf. First Edition, Author’s Offprint for private circulation (so noted on the front wrapper) of the paper describing Bell’s induction balance, the best instrument for locating metallic objects in the body prior to the x-ray. On July 2, 1881 President James Garfield was shot by a deranged assassin and survived for 79 days before dying from septicemia on September 19. The assassination attempt left Garfield with a bullet lodged behind his pancreas, but his death could likely have been prevented had he received better medical care after the shooting. Unfortunately, his doctors did understand antiseptic principles and so did not take any measures to prevent infection, probing the president’s wound with unsterilized fingers and instruments in a vain attempt to find the bullet; they also misjudged the path the bullet took, believing that it had traveled to the right rather than to the left in Garfield’s body. Shortly after the shooting Bell was asked if he could invent a device to detect the bullet in Garfield’s body without the need for painful probing. Bell came up with his induction balance, a machine that used a telephone hooked up to an electric current to locate metallic objects in the body. On August 2 Bell tried to find the bullet lodged inside the president but was unsuccessful, in part because the metal in Garfield’s bed frame prevented Bell from getting an accurate result, and in part because Garfield’s doctor would only let Bell use his device on Garfield’s right side. The president’s deteriorating condition prevented Bell from making a second attempt, and after his initial failure he was denounced as a charlatan; however, an improved version of Bell’s induction balance saved countless lives on the battlefield in the decades before the x-ray came into general use. 8176.

        A grammar and dictionary of the Otchipwe language [wrapper title]

      Montreal: Beauchemin & Valois, 1882. New edition, by a Missionary of the Oblates, 2 volumes in 1, thick 8vo; pp. xi, [1], 422; [6], 301, [1], viii, 422, [2]; large folding table of Ojibeway verbs; original green printed wrappers and rare thus. The title page of the Grammar is dated 1878 and the Dictionary 1878-1880. Apparently this is a late issue with the two volumes bound up as one, in wrappers. This copy with an original invoice from the publishers dated 4 Sept. 1882 to W. Scott Hill, the original owner, and with Hill's name and date (6 Sept. 1882) on flyleaf. In a new cloth folding box. Called the "Indian Apostle of the Northwest," Baraga served the Chippewas and the Ottawas in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and in Wisconsin from 1831-1868. He studied the Chippewa language, translating religious books, and writing the Theoretical and Practical Grammar of the Otchipwe Language (1850) and the Dictionary of the Otchipwe Language (1853). Ojibway (or Chippeway) is the principle dialect of of the great Algonquin stock. A number of early travellers had included lists of Ojibway words in their published accounts (among them Carver, Keating, Long, McKenney, and Schoolcraft), but Baraga's is the first comprehensive Ojibway dictionary, the first separately printed, and the first to treat the language bilingually with English. Pilling credits Baraga as one of the foremost contributors to the study of Algonquian languages, and states that Baraga's grammar and dictionary are "perhaps the most important contribution to Indian philology made hitherto." Pilling, Algonquin, p. 27; see Ludewig, The Literature of American Aboriginal Languages, London, 1858, pp. 41-44.

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

      Published by the Admiralty, London 1882 - Engraving. Printed on wove paper. In excellent condition. Image size: 25 1/4 x 38 1/4 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.

        ACTA MATHEMATICA. Zeitschrift herausgegeben / Journal rédigé par

      26 tomes en 22 volumes Stockholm, Beijer, 1882-1902, in-4, 26 tomes en 22 volumes, 18 volumes demi-basane bleue et 4 volumes brochés, Très rare ensemble de la tête de collection de cette revue capitale, encore éditée aujourd'hui, fondée par le mathématicien Magnus Gustaf Mittag-Leffler (1846-1927), maître de conférence à l'université d'Uppsala en 1872, professeur à l'université d'Helsingfors (Finlande) en 1877 et à la faculté des sciences de Stockholm à partir de 1881. Certainement le plus prestigieux de tous les journaux consacrés à la recherche en mathématiques. Les Acta Mathematica se flattent de la contribution des plus grands mathématiciens de l'époque : Henri Poincaré, Sophie Kowalevski, Georg Cantor, Émile Picard, Paul Appell, Rudolf Lipschitz, Johan Jensen, David Hilbert, Émile Borel, Heinrich Martin Weber, etc... Ils contiennent entre autre le fameux travail d'Henri Poincaré sur la théorie du chaos, qu'il publia en remplacement de son mémoire initial sur la stabilité du système solaire. L'épisode relatif à ces 2 mémoires fait partie des temps forts de l'histoire de la revue : En 1889, Poincaré rédige un mémoire pour répondre au problème de savoir si les petites perturbations intrinsèques au mouvement des planètes pourraient, un jour, provoquer une collision entre elles ou bien si, comme l'avaient démontré Laplace, Lagrange et Gauss, le système solaire restera stable pendant au moins un million d'années. Le roi Oscar II de Suède lance un concours auquel répond le mathématicien français : en démontrant qu'un système très simple, formé de trois corps dont un de masse presque nulle, est un système stable, Poincaré obtient le prix du concours. Il est prévu que le mémoire soit publié dans les Acta Mathematica. L'article est imprimé, mais tout de suite après sa relecture, on constate une erreur fondamentale, qui non seulement invalide le raisonnement de l'auteur, mais plus encore, le conduit à une conclusion opposée : le système peut être instable. Poincaré dépense plus de la totalité de son prix à faire détruire les tirages et à faire réimprimer le numéro sans son article. Un an après, les Acta Mathematica publient son mémoire révisé, Sur le problème des trois corps et les équations de la dynamique, occupant la quasi intégralité du tome 13 (1890), qui fonde l'une des théories mathématiques les plus connues et les plus populaires, la théorie du chaos. Articles en allemand et en français. 2 portraits : Karl Weierstrass et Sophie Kowalevski Tables des matières aux tome 10 et 20. In fine au tome 11 : liste des 12 mémoires, anonymes, présentés au Prix Oscar II. Sans le portrait d'Abel annoncé au tome I. Volumes en demi-basane : dos épidermés et passés. Couvertures des volumes brochés fanées, dos muets refaits. Cachets annulé de l'Institut catholique de Paris et étiquettes en pied des dos.

        Recherches cliniques sur la fréquence des maladies sexuelles chez les aliénées

      20 pp. Paris, Aux bureaux du progrès médical, A. Delaye & E. Lecrosnier, 1882, in-4, 20 pp, broché, couverture d'attente, Édition originale de cette publication du Progrès Médical, extraite des archives de neurologie, et traitant de l'influence de la fréquence des maladies sexuelles sur la folie de la femme. Le docteur Danillo, médecin de la clinique de Saint-Pétersbourg, a mené cette étude à la Salpêtrière et à Saint-Anne, avec l'accord de Charcot et Magnan. Danillo introduit son sujet avec une approche médicale historique des études précédentes. La problématique de la fréquence n'ayant encore jamais été abordé, il expose par la suite sa méthode scientifique et les résultats obtenus. Cela lui permet de conclure que "si l'on examine le degré de fréquence des affectations sexuelles chez les aliénées accompagnant les différentes formes d'aliénation mentale, [...] on voit qu'il ne parait pas y avoir une tendance plus prononcée chez les aliénées à être affectées des organes génitaux plutôt dans une forme de maladie mentale que dans une autre". Ainsi selon Danillo, les maladies sexuelles touchent les patientes sans distinction de pathologie psychiatrique ; il souligne aussi que la folie a une forte tendance à s'aggraver avec la fréquence des maladies sexuelles (surtout chez femme non ménopausée), et que ces complications sont directement à la fréquence et non à la maladie en elle-même. Bel exemplaire, sous couverture d'attente.

        Métalloscopie, métallothérapie, aesthésiogènes

      72 pages Paris, Delahaye et Lecrosnier, 1882, in-8, 72 pages, broché, couverture d'attente, non coupé, PREMIÈRE ÉDITION en librairie de cette étude sur la métalloscopie initialement publiée dans les n°2, 3, 4, 5 des Archives de Neurologie en 1880-1881. (Archives de neurologie, 2-5. Paris, Bureaux du Progrès médical, pp. 257-273, 413-428, 564-573 & 92-119) Victor Burq fut le premier à faire usage de la métalloscopie sur les femmes hystériques à travers des expérimentations à l'aide de métaux, d'aimants et de courants électriques. Les premières séances d'expérimentation ont lieux en 1876 et 1877. L'application de plaques métalliques sur une région anesthésiée du corps contribuait au retour de la sensibilité dans cette partie du corps, tandis que le côté symétrique, sain à l'origine, perdait sa sensibilité normale. Par la suite, Charcot qualifiera d' « aesthésiogène » l'ensemble des agents ou des procédés susceptibles d'agir sur la sensibilité. Outre les métaux traditionnellement usités par Burq, l'aimant, le gong et le diapason firent progressivement leur apparition durant les séances d'hypnotisation, à l'initiative de R. Vigouroux et de D.-M. Bourneville. Romain Vigouroux, (1831-1911), successeur de Guillaume Duchenne De Boulogne dans le service d'électrothérapie de la Salpêtrière, est par ailleurs connu pour avoir mis au point des installations d'un concentré de machines électriques permettant des traitements réguliers et sériel de patients pouvant aller jusqu'à 4 par jours. (Le Sonn, « L'aimant, le transfert et la polarisation. Les manoeuvres d'hypnotisation à la Salpêtrière par Alfred Binet et Charles Féré », Recherches & éducations, 11 | 2014, 168-184.)
