        Friends, Though Divided. A Tale of the Civil War

      London, Griffith & Farran, 1883 [first edition, with the advertisements dated '9.83']. Octavo, [viii], 384, 32 (advertisements) pages with decorative head- and tailpieces plus 8 plates (the frontispiece with a tissue guard). Pictorial blue cloth blocked in gilt and black; cloth a little flecked and marked, sunned on the spine, and lightly rubbed or worn at the extremities; light stains to the top and bottom edges; front flyleaf neatly excised; half-title browned and offset; small light stain to the blank top margin of two plates and a handful of leaves, with light associated cockling to about 25 consecutive leaves; notwithstanding, an agreeable copy. With a gift inscription on the front pastedown, 'R.M.W. Thirkell & G.L.A. Thirkell, Christmas 1904, from L.F. Piesse'. The Tasmanian Thirkell brothers, who would have been in their early teens when they were given this book, both served as officers in the Middle East, England and France during the First World War. The elder brother, Robert Mowbray Winston Thirkell, was awarded the MBE after the war, and was later a career officer, rising to the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. The second, George Lancelot Allnut Thirkell, served with various field engineer units in Gallipoli and France. While stationed in England in late 1917 he married the well-connected divorcee Angela McInnes at the Kensington registry office. In 1920 the couple sailed to Australia, but Angela found life in suburban Melbourne dull and the marriage did not last. She returned to Britain around 1930 and soon began a successful career as a novelist under her married name, Angela Thirkell. In 1934 she published 'Trooper to the Southern Cross' under the nom de plume of Leslie Parker, a fictionalised retelling of the couple's eventful voyage from England to Australia on the troopship 'Friedrichsruh', told through the eyes of a character based on her husband George. Dartt, pages 61-62.

        Inquiries into Human Faculty and its Development.

      London: Macmillan and Co., 1883 - Octavo. Original purple cloth, spine lettered in gilt, boards ruled in blind, black endpapers, partially unopened. Spine ends and corners gently rubbed and bumped, spine sunned, hinges gently cracked but firm, overall an excellent copy. Mounted photographic frontispiece with tissue guard, 4 plates, of which one is double-page and coloured, and numerous engraved and woodcut illustrations to the text. Ownership signature in pencil to half-title. First edition. Galton, a first cousin of Charles Darwin, is regarded as the founder of eugenics and the word finds its first appearance in this work. "Most of his practical eugenic suggestions were for forms of what might be called positive eugenics: research programmes for discovering which diseases were hereditary; tax schemes for encouraging intelligent people to marry each other and to have large families. However, many of the people who took up the eugenic cause (and there were thousands of such people in many countries) were more interested in negative eugenic measures (for example the sterilization of persons deemed 'unfit'). Particularly after the lengths to which the Nazi regime in Germany took eugenic practice the word developed ugly connotations and was subsequently dropped from the title of all the institutions that Galton had helped to found" (ODNB).

        Life Among the Piutes: Their Wrongs and Claims...

      Boston: Cupples Upham , 1883 8vo original cloth with gilt lettered spine, 268 pp. Minor rubbing and light staining to the covers and some extremity wear, mostly at top and bottom of spine, normal aging. Otherwise very good, and internally very nice. Before she took her married name Hopkins, Sara Winnemucca was known as Tocmetone or Thocmetony (shell flower) to her people. Winnemucca was her father's name, but that was the name associated to her by whites. Born about 1844 in Nevada, her people and family had a long positive association with whites. Her grandfather was a close associate and friend of Fremont, and was with him during his California campaign in 1846. She and some other members of her band were taken to California shortly thereafter, and several years later she attended a convent school in San Jose. In 1878 she served as a guide and an interpreter for General O.O. Howard during the Banncock War, and joined her father on a trip to Washington in 1879 to intercede for her people who were being removed to a reservation. The present work, which is the only book she ever published, contains as an important theme, corruption in the Indian service department, which made her rather unpopular at the time. Considered one of the most important Nevada books of the 19 century, this work is also significant because it tells the story of the relationship between the Indians and the white man from the earliest times from the Indian point of view.

        The Expansion of England.

      London: Macmillan and Co.,, 1883. Two Courses of Lectures. Octavo (187 x 122 mm). Contemporary brown half morocco by H. Wood, spine lettered in gilt in compartments, marbled paper sides, marbled endpapers, top edge gilt. Spine lightly faded, slight wear to paper on bottom edges, minor foxing to prelims and endmatter; an excellent copy. First edition, signed by the author on the title page. An exceptional association copy of this influential work, with the ownership inscription of British prime minister Archibald Primrose, Fifth Earl of Rosebery, to the half-title, his later Durdans bookplate to the front pastedown, and Durdans blindstamp to the title page. Rosebery was said to have been profoundly affected by this work, McKinstry suggesting in his biography that Seeley should be seen as his political mentor (p.161). Indeed "when Rosebery became Prime Minister in 1894, one of his first acts was to recommend that Seeley be awarded an honour. He was duly appointed Knight Commander of the Order of St Michael and St George" (ODNB). Rosebery wrote to Seeley on the occasion of the knighthood, stating that the award was not merely a testimony to "my admiration for yourself and your work, but to my staunch adherence to the principles of empire that you have so eloquently set forth" (Bell, p. 168). Rosebery became the first president of the Imperial Federation League, of which Seeley was a member, in 1884. This copy also bears Rosebery's extensive and insightful pencil marginalia, including chapter summaries and contradictions to the text, ("It is not possible to incorporate all subsequent American History in our own"). Rosebery read this work during his tour of Australia, undertaken between 1883 and 1884, dating the half-title "Dec. 7, 1883, Sydney, N. S. W." and noting the date he completed it "Jan 7. 1884, S. S. Pateena from Launceston to Melbourne". This tour is said to have "imparted an enthusiasm for empire that he never shed" (ODNB); the reading of this work during the tour potentially being a contributing factor. In 1872 Rosebery purchased The Durdans, near Epsom, described by Henry James as "a delightful house, full of books" (The Complete Letters of Henry James, 1880–1883, Volume 1, p.144). The Expansion of England consists of two lectures delivered by Seeley delivered at Cambridge in the autumn of 1881 and spring of 1882. The lectures were then substantially modified and published in book form. In this work Seeley "demanded a 'single conception' of English history, namely 'that the European policy and colonial policy are but different aspects of the same great national development' ... Seeley's profound reflexions on the magnitude, the responsibilities and the obligations of empire-buildling did not prevent the book from being perverted into the bible of those 'bombastic' imperialists upon whom Seeley directed his sharpest strictures" (PMM). Signed copies of Seeley's work are scarce, with none traced at auction.

        Untersuchungen über die Methode der Socialwissenschaften, und der Politischen Oekonomie insbesondere.

      Leipzig: Duncker & Humblot,, 1883. Octavo (217 x 138 mm). Later half calf, patterned paper boards, red morocco spine label, compartments ruled in gilt, edges red. Extremities lightly rubbed, hinges cracked but firm, contents lightly tanned, an excellent copy. First edition of the economic theorist's second major work; scarce. Carl Menger (1840–1921), founder of the Austrian school of marginal analysis, was both the most influential and the least read of the major figures who gave economic theory the shape it preserved from about 1885 to 1935. In the Untersuchungen, his second major work, he "undertook to vindicate the importance of theory in the social sciences. This was an effort that seemed necessary to him in view of the complete indifference or even hostility which most of his German colleagues, influenced by the antitheoretical attitude of the 'younger historical school' in economics, had shown towards his attempt in the earlier Grundsätze der Volkswirthschaftslehre (1871) to reconstruct economic theory" (von Hayek in IESS).

        YOUNG JAPAN: Yokohama and Yedo A Narrative of the Settlementand the City from th

      - New York 1883, Pratt. Black cloth, very good, neatly reback- ed using the old spine, edges & corners worn, 2 volume set, 418+522p., index, contens very clean, co-published by Kelly, Yokohama, 14 x 23 cm. FIRST AMERICAN EDITION An important primary source, written by the former editor of the "Japan Herald," the "Japan Gazette," "Far East," "Nisshin Shinjishi" among several other publications, the author was especially qualified in reporting the news. This current work is his most exhaustive account of both foreign and Japanese activities in Yokohama from its early opening in 1858 back to 1789. * During this 21 year Period, history was made, for Japan was now open to the West, and the flow of ship and goods made Japan aware of her backwardness. Printed in Yokohama at the author's private printing office, this work covers the author's personal observations of the arrival of Lord Elgin, Mr. Alcock, Japanese experiences with foreigners, murdered Russians, assassinations of foreigners, the murder of Mr. Henry Heusken, Mr. Oliphant and rebel Satsuma forces, Ohara Mission, account of Choshu forts cannon attacks upon foreign vessels, Sir Harry Parks, life in Yokohama, trade, start of "Japan Times," Chamber of Commerce, &c. * This work also covers "The King of Liu-kiu's own Story. * Perhaps the most comprehensive early resource on Yokohama & foreigners there done during this period. * All editions were identical in this aspect, and the contents are identical. A contemporary insight to Yokohama life. ALWAYS RARE ! * NOTE ON THE PUBLISHER, PRINTING LOCATION OF THIS WORK: On the verso of the title page it states: Vol.1: "Printed at the Private Printing Office of the Author, No.16, Yokohama, Japan." . Vol. 2: "Printed at the "Japan Gazette" Office, no.70, Main Street, Yokohama, Japan." . While the title page states at the bottom, "London, Trubner & Co., Yokohama, Kelly & Co 1880, 1881" this book was only published in Yokohama, but distributed by Trubner in London. The publisher "Kelly" is referring to a later change in that publisher's name to "Kelly & Walsh." . Regardless of the above irregularities, the book was clearly privately printed in Yokohama at John R. Black's office. A very rare and early Yokohama printing in English. ***

        Responding to the U.S. Supreme Court’s Invalidation of Anti-Discrimination Laws, a New Jersey Congressman Unsuccessfully Attempts to Ensure Civil Rights at the Start of the Jim Crow Era

      [New Jersey] 1883 - Broadside. Assembly No 13., State of New Jersey. An Act to Prevent Discrimination against Any Person on Account of his Race, Creed or Color. Large folio sheet, with numbered lines, printed for the use of the legislature. [New Jersey], Introduced January 9, 1883. "Be it enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey, That no person shall be denied the full and equal enjoyment of the accommodations, advantages, facilities and privileges of all hotels, inns, taverns, restaurants, public conveyances on land or water, theatres and places of public resort or amusement, because of race, creed or color." The Civil Rights Act of 1875 forbid discrimination in hotels, trains, and other public spaces. In 1883, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled that the Civil Rights Act of 1875 was not authorized by the 13th or 14th Amendments, and therefore was unconstitutional. The Court established the state-action doctrine, allowing Jim Crow segregation and discrimination by private actors.In an unsuccessful attempt to counter the Court's decision, Congressman John Hill (1821-1884) of New Jersey placed this act on the table to guarantee equal treatment under the law for all.Excerpted From Wikipedia:The Civil Rights Act of 1875 . sometimes called Enforcement Act or Force Act, was a United States federal law enacted during the Reconstruction Era in response to civil rights violations to African American, "to protect all citizens in their civil and legal rights", giving them equal treatment in public accommodations, public transportation, and to prohibit exclusion from jury service. The drafting of the bill was performed early in 1870 by Senator Charles Sumner, a dominant Radical Republican in the Senate, with the assistance of John Mercer Langston, a prominent African American who established the law department at Howard University.Grant had wanted an entirely different law to help him suppress election-related violence against blacks and Republicans in the South. Congress did not give him that, but instead wrote a law for equal rights to public accommodations that was passed as a memorial to Grant's bitterest enemy, the late Senator Charles Sumner. Grant never commented on the 1875 law, and did nothing to enforce it says historian John Hope Franklin. Grant's Justice Department ignored it and did not send copies to US attorneys, says Franklin, while many federal judges called it unconstitutional before the Supreme Court shut it down.The Supreme Court, in an 8-1 decision, declared sections of the act unconstitutional in the Civil Rights Cases on October 15, 1883. Justice John Marshall Harlan provided the lone dissent. The Court held the Equal Protection Clause within the Fourteenth Amendment prohibits discrimination by the state and local government, but it does not give the federal government the power to prohibit discrimination by private individuals and organizations. The Court also held that the Thirteenth Amendment was meant to eliminate "the badge of slavery," but not to prohibit racial discrimination in public accommodations. The Civil Rights Act of 1875 was the last civil rights bill to be signed into law by the federal government until the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1957 during the Civil Rights Movement.Provisions contained in the Civil Rights Act of 1875 were later readopted by Congress . as part of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Civil Rights Act of 1968. The 1964 and 1968 acts relied upon the Commerce Clause contained in Article One of the Constitution of the United States rather than the Equal Protection Clause within the Fourteenth Amendment.

        Ueber Kropfexstirpation und ihre Folgen (pp.1-84, Taf. I-III mit 18 Fig.).

      Verh. Dtsch. Ges. Chir., 12. - Berlin, Verlag von Ausgust Hirschwald, 1883, 8,XIX, (1), 108 pp., 357, (1) pp., mit 5 Tafeln Abbildungen und Holzschnitten, Halbleinenband Titgelblatt hinterlegt aus dem Vorbesitz von (F.v.) Bramann. Erstdruck des berühmten Vortrages von Theodor Kocher am 4. April 1884 auf 12. Congress der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Chirurgie!"Kochers Name wird so lange unvergessen bleiben, wie Kröpfe behandelt werden. Auf dem Kongreß 1883 (II. 1) hielt er seinen bekannten Vortrag "Über Kropfexstirpation und ihre Folgen", in dem er das bisher unbekannte Krankheitsbild der Cachexia strumipriva festlegte und den Anstoß zu Forschungen gab, die zur Kenntnis der physiologischen Bedeutung der Schilddrüse und der anderen Drüsen mit innerer Sekretion geführt haben. Nach Beschreibung seines wohl durchdachten Operationsverfahrens wendet er sich gegen Roses einseitige Ansicht von der Häufigkeit der Erweichung der Trachealwand und dem Nutzen der Trachéotomie. Die Ursache der Dyspnoe sieht er fast ausschließlich in der von Demme beschriebenen Säbelform der Trachea, die Trachéotomie ist, abgesehen von Fällen unmittelbarer Erstickungsgefahr, als eine den aseptischen Verlauf störende Komplikation zu verwerfen.Auf Ödeme des Gesichts und der Hände, allgemeine Schwäche, kretinartigen Gesichtsausdruck einige Zeit nach der Totalexstirpation war Jacques Reverdin, Professor in Genf, bei einer Geheilten aufmerksam geworden. Kocher hörte das gleiche von einer 1874 operierten Patientin, und daraufhin angestellte Nachforschungen ergaben nun, daß von 18 Patienten mit Totalexstirpation, die sich zur Nachuntersuchung stellten, 16 Erscheinungen von Cachexia strumipriva darboten, und zwar in um so höherem Grade, je längere Zeit seit der Operation verstrichen war, während 28 partiell Operierte sich normal verhielten. Am auffallendsten war die Schädigung bei den in der Wachstumsperiode Operierten, wie Kocher an der Photographie zweier Schwestern zeigte, von denen die ältere, damals größere, 1874 operiert war und jetzt sehr viel kleiner geblieben war als die normal entwickelte gesunde jüngere Schwester.Eine bestimmte Erklärung für Myxödem und Cachexia strumipriva und für das damit experimentell erwiesene Abhängigkeitsverhältnis zwischen Schilddrüse und Kretinismus wußte Kocher nicht zu geben. Er dachte an die Möglichkeit, daß die Unterbindung der auch die Trachea versorgenden Schilddrüsenarterien zu Atrophie und - in anderer Weise als wie Rose annahm - zu Erweichung der Trachealwand führen und durch eine gewisse Behinderung der freien Atmung und ungenügende Sauerstoffzufuhr schädigend wirken, oder daß das Wegfallen einer die Blutzirkulation im Gehirn regulierenden Tätigkeit im Spiele sein könnte. - Friedrich Trendelburg, Die ersten 25 Jahre der Deutschen Gesellschaft für Chirurgie (Berlin 1923 ), pp.238-239First Print of Emil Theodor Kocher's (1841 - 1917) famous lecture "Ueber Kropfexstirpation und ihre Folgen" ( also printed in: Arch. klin. Chir., 29, 254-337. , 1883) in which he "coined the term "cachexia strumipriva" to describe the myxedema following total extirpation of the thyroid. His work on the subject led to a better understanding of the cause of myxedema."
