        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. ***

        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."

      Schloss Trziblitz (Trebívlice), 7. VIII. 1883. - 4 SS. auf Doppelblatt. 8vo. Geschrieben mit 79 Jahren an ihre jüngere Halbschwester Bertha (1808-84, Tochter ihrer Mutter Amalie und des Friedrich Carl von Levetzow, Cousins ihres Vaters Joachim, von dem sich Amalie getrennt hatte). Sie berichtet über alles mögliche, u. a. "daß Adalbert seine Wohnung in Frankfurt aufgegeben hat, ohne bis jetzt sich eine andere Wohnung genommen zu haben. Vielen soll es in Frankfurt nicht mehr gefallen". Goethe traf seine letzte Liebe 1822 und 1823 in Marienbad und Karlsbad und warb trotz seiner hohen Jahre um die Neunzehnjährige. Sie wurde vom Dichter unsterblich verherrlicht in seiner "Marienbader Elegie". - Provenienz: Leo Liepmannssohn (Berlin), Auktionskat. 60 (1930), Nr. 464. Erworben aus einer deutschen Privatsammlung.

        UNDERGROUND CITY;

      , 1883. 1883. or, The Child of the Cavern. Translated by W. H. G. Kingston. Philadelphia: Porter & Coates, n.d.[by 1883]. Original brown cloth pictorially decorated in black and gilt. First American hardbound edition of this supernatural tale sited deep in a Scottish mine. Per Kingston's introduction, Verne~has called into existence a mine of fabulous wealth, and has placed in it a mysterious being endowed with superhuman powers, who performs wonders unsurpassed in the present prosaic age.~Quoting also from T&M,~The unusually attractive front cover shows the supreme moment when old Silfax, standing with arms raised in a small boat in Loch Malcolm, calls Harfang the bird to ignite the explosive gas trapped under the cavern ceiling.~This tale's first publication in English was in the Spring of 1877, THE BLACK INDIES in George Munro's self-wrappered "Seaside Library." The British authorized edition, THE CHILD OF THE CAVERN, fully illustrated, was issued later that year. The publication date of this Porter & Coates edition is uncertain (Myers cites "[1878?]", while T&M states simply that it had to have been sometime before October 1883); however, it is regarded as the first illustrated (and first hardbound) American edition, as T&M cites no other such American edition earlier than 1888 (and that too was by Porter & Coates). Although P&C published numerous later-printings of Verne tales from the Osgood plates it bought, UNDERGROUND CITY is the only Verne "first" published by Porter & Coates.~This copy is in brown cloth; we have also had terra-cotta (no priority). It is a bright, near-fine copy (trifling wear at the tips, front endpaper with small edge-chips, a few signatures slightly proud) of this attractively-bound book. Rather uncommon.

        Eagle Gulch, an Australian story

      London : James Blackwood & Co., 1883. First and only edition. Octavo, original printed wrappers with vignette illustration, inscribed 'With the Publisher's Compliments' (darkened, stained and chipped; upper wrapper detached; paper loss to spine); pp 57; damp stain to fore-edge of approximately the first half of the volume. An extremely rare fictional work set on Queensland's Darling Downs goldfields. Written by a pseudonymous author of whom nothing is known, the work is utterly obscure and would seem to be one of only two known copies. It does not feature in any bibliography or other reference work. The story is an adventure narrated by a miner from Cornwall. Although it is ostensibly set on the Darling Downs, the fact that Melbourne is the only urban centre mentioned suggests that the author had probably never set foot in Australia, and that he/she used poetic licence to conflate the Queensland and Victorian goldfields. The State Library of New South Wales holds the only other copy we can trace.

        The Cicero Correspondent : a journal of daily events & a medium for general advertisements

      Cover title: The Cicero Correspondent : a Newspaper published on board the Barque Cicero, on her voyage from Plymouth to Port Adelaide, with 368 Immigrants. January 11th to April 12th, 1883. Captain, J.C.B. Jarvis; Surgeon-Superintendent, Dr. Cartwright; Matron, Miss M. Davidson. Price, one shilling. [Sydenham Cottage, Kent Town, S. Aust.] : G. F. Best, 1883.No. 1 - 11 (Feb. - Apr. 1883). Small quarto, printed pink wrappers (detached, stained, with edge and corner wear, later owner's inscription to front upper margin), contents stitch-bound, each issue individually paginated (most 3 or 4 pages), occasional foxing, otherwise sound. Rare. During the immigrant ship Cicero's 1883 voyage from Plymouth to Adelaide, G.F. Best produced a newspaper in manuscript form which was circulated amongst the other passengers. 'The weekly pages of the "Cicero Correspondent" found so much favor on board during the voyage ... he decided to have the entire issue printed and published in book form upon arrival in Adelaide. The work, although of modest pretensions, is really a ship's journal, and not filled up with extracts from periodical literature...' (preface). Copies are held in two Australian collections (State Library of South Australia; National Library of Australia); a photocopy of the original manuscript (which is presumably in a private collection) is held in the State Library of Queensland.
